I Can’t Stop Looking at this Picture!

yearin review

The other day I shared this blog post over on my other blog http://www.MaggiesVitmamins.Blog and had a lot of engagement when I shared it on FB so I thought it must be inspiring so I will share it on my main blog as well. So here it is ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the FB memories thing, but today when it came up, I was in for a shocker!

Looking at this picture from one year ago today (picture on the left) prompted me to take the picture on the right (just today) to compare the two. This was really a vulnerable experience for me and I debated whether to share it or not, but here I am.

I am amazed at the difference I see. It made me reflect on the changes I have been making in my life. As many of you know, I made a decision to NOT buy into the โ€œIโ€™m getting olderโ€ model and to flip it around to โ€œIโ€™m getting younger all the time and itโ€™s workingโ€ model. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I have also coined a phrase for myself and for my nutritional practice which is โ€œNutrition IS the Missionโ€, and I am feeling really, really, good about the results I am seeing not only in myself, but in my clients.

When I look at these two pictures I realize yes, I have lost a lot of weight, but what gets me excited the most is how nourished I look in the 2nd picture. The weight is secondary to me. My skin looks so much better and I can see and feel an entirely different energy in picture #2. The person in picture #2 is embracing her health and the ability to transform it, and itโ€™s working and itโ€™s showing.

For me though most important is the personal empowerment I feel from knowing that changes can and do make a difference and I know that if they work for me, they can work for others. This is exciting!!!!

I do not aspire to any trendy diet, but focus on more nutrition, Joy and just moreโ€ฆ more of the good stuffโ€ฆ especially fruit. I am an advocate of more fruit in the diet and even potatoes. Potatoes were something I did not eat, but now that I โ€˜knowโ€™ how good they are for us, I enjoy them like crazy. I really enjoy the work of Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium, and have learned from him and his teachings and that has been hugely helpful.

Another thing I am focusing on is removing heavy metals from my body and helping others with this as well. By adding in more nutrients and removing pathogens and heavy metals, we can help to balance our bodies and they can run at a more optimal level. Our bodies are always trying to heal us and when we support them, well they love it and do a better job at it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyhow thanks for reading along and I truly appreciate your support by being here.

I feel as though my entire life has prepared me for this time and I am looking forward to sharing all that I have learned through my own personal experience and my nutritional education. I am excited to continue improving my own life and in helping others on their journey to healthier lives using Nutrition as a catalyst to healing and to making positive change.

I Woke Up With a Bursting Heart!

heart bursting

This morning I was inspired in my sleep to wake up, get up, and to write this blog post. I was so excited I was BURSTING!!! I am one of those people whose mind and heart never stops working. When I get excited about something I feel it bursting out through my heart center and when I feel this sensation I know I must share it.

I truly believe that life is about serving others and making a difference and that is why my dream inspired me to share why I personally love what some people call being in ‘Sales’. I like to call it SALES…. or Sharing Awesome LOVE Everyday with Someone! Call it what you will, it’s the best thing you could ever do or be in as far as I am concerned.

As my acronym states, everyday I get to share awesome love with someone somewhere. I get to offer benefit and improvement to someone’s life and that benefit or improvement may continue to work in that person’s life everyday moving forward.

Whether I am selling a nutritional product, a coaching package, or my recent offering of a hair mineral analysis which tests the hair for heavy metals and mineral imbalances in the body, I am helping to change people’s lives! What’s not to love? How LUCKY am I?

It truly perplexes me why anyone would see the sales with a negative connotation. I fully embrace and am honored that I can perform this role for my fellow teammates here on planet earth. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am pumped, over-joyed and thrilled about it!!!

If I can help to make a difference in someone’s life to feel better, be healthier, understand themselves more, have more Joy, worry less, improve their health, look better, feel better…… etc. etc. etc., of course I would help them. Why wouldn’t I? In fact, I am excited to help people. I want to do more and more and more of that! I get so excited about it, it wakes me up and brings me to the keyboard. ๐Ÿ™‚

I believe if we are alive and breathing here on earth we are in sales. It is our job to serve each other and to make a difference in the lives of others. Do it with Love, do it with Kindness and if you are in the field deemed ‘Sales’ do it with honesty and excitement, and with the intent to make a difference, and you WILL make a difference. Serving others is a gift that we are all born with and it is the gift of life. When we both share this gift and receive this gift we get to experience the magic of it.

Children are the best ‘sales people’ on earth. They are naturals. They get excited about things and they share it. Whether they just found the coolest rock or they want the candy they see on that low lying shelf at the grocery store, they are going to let you know loud and clear. They will show and tell you why they should have it or why that rock is the most exciting rock on planet earth. ๐Ÿ™‚ They naturally share their exuberance and delight.

If you are someone who is reading this and has an offering for the world that you share on a regular basis, I encourage you to get excited about it. Do it with LOVE and with an intent to make a difference and most of all own what you do and be proud of it. It is an HONOR to be able to make a difference in the live’s of others.

Live Every Moment in the Present and with DELIGHT!

adventure
I think sometimes in life we tend to ‘begin with the end in mind’ and it stops us from having Joy in the moment or in the ‘Now’.

Whether someone is planning a trip, going on a date with a new person, taking a new course, or even starting a new job, they will often analyse the situation to death and try to foresee all potential outcomes of the experience. Their thinking becomes so clouded with variables, that they miss the gift of the experience and especially miss the opportunity to delight in a new experience.

By being open to adventure and to new opportunities without expectations or without seeing the potential of an end result, we are in a much better place to receive the Joy of the experience.

Moving forward, why not be more open to new experiences in and of themselves? Perhaps keep in mind that it is an experience and a mere moment in time. The only constant we have in life is change itself. So if the said experience is enjoyable and you want to continue with more experiences like that one, you can, and if you find that it was not as pleasant as you would have liked, you can chose to make changes and/or pursue other experiences. The most important point is to go into the experience without trying to figure everything out ahead of time, which clouds and negates the evolution of the experience.

One of my favorite examples is people when they are dating. They worry about all the details of thinking ahead to see if they are compatible with that person. Just go on the date and be open to delighting in the experience! Let the evolution of the experience lead the way for you to know more, knowing you are free to change course at any given time in your life.

Enjoy…. Be Open…. Delight in Them!…..

A Rose from Heaven

received_1896391450382566

I love signs from the other side and especially this one! My new cousin by marriage, shared this memory today on Facebook and I was like “eww I gotta share this!” It is such a beautiful example of the love that is always pouring through and for us from our deceased loved ones.

Amanda was today remembering that it has been two years since her father passed. By request she shared with me what happened two years ago when he passed. I will let her tell the story in her own beautiful words.

The red rose…

Something my mama always used to tell me is how my dad loved to give my mama roses when they were together. He even spoke of it often, how roses were his thing, my father the hopeless romantic. It was only fitting that before we said goodbye for the last time we laid long stem roses on his casket. After we left we went to go see the Oregon coast, my dad used to talk to me about how beautiful the coast was and I was too close to miss it. And oh how beautiful it was! I walked away from everyone for a bit walking along the beach, a bit torn. My heart missed my dad. No more early morning calls. No more stories of when my dad traveled the country. And while the very last words to my dad was I love you and he said he loved me too, I wasn’t sure he KNEW…. I didn’t know if he really really knew how much I loved him. I started to cry and as I walked along I started to talk to him. Telling him how much I hoped he knew that I really did love him. Then I looked up and washed up on the beach was a single long stem rose. My daddy, sent a rose…. to let me know that he knew. That he loved us too. He sent us a rose from Heaven.

Amanda Larsen

I hope you enjoyed this beautiful story of love and signs from the divine, as much as I did. I would love to hear from you about the gifts you have received from the other side where the love is endless and is sent our way always…

Life Everywhere

I took this picture somewhere in my travels over the years and when I look at it, it reminds me of life being all around us. I find when we start to connect and to appreciate our own divinity, we also wake up and become aware of the divine essense that is all around us.

I find that the more that I am tapped into nature the more I can feel the frequency of its life force just as I feel my own. In my daily yoga practice I do a short conscious relaxtion segement when at one point, you put your hands on your throat. Whenever I do this I especially feel connected to my own divinity and life force. I think for me, it is especially moving, as I consider myself a lover of communicating and expressing myself, so to feel the vibrations in my neck and pulse, is extra magical and it reminds me of the gift of life itself.

What about you? Do you find yourself seeing and connecting to the life and aliveness that is around you? Perhaps it is through flowers, or sunshine, or by observing your pet or sleeping baby. Aliveness is all around us and is a beautiful reminder of the gift of life itself.

I hope you go today in Love and Aliveness and that you are open to receive the gifts that are all around you and are just waiting for you to observe and appreciate them.

Rainy Day Yoga Reflections

Today’s yoga was at the cottage in front of the fire. What a delightful place to do my daily yoga on a rainy day.

As I was doing my yoga I was reflecting on how yesterday I was able to step right up onto our pontoon boat verses last summer where I needed help or a small ladder!

In that moment I was so grateful that I take the time everyday to do even a short 15-minute yoga session. It has truly changed my life in many ways but especially when it comes to flexibility and movement.

Sometimes we don’t realize or even notice the benefits of small daily disciplines until they surprise us with big benefits like the surprise I had yesterday.

I always try to remember that little improvements or additions to my daily health regiment can and do make a difference and that it’s worth it. I hope you feel encouraged by this as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

And I hope you are all enjoying your day whether rain or shine. ๐Ÿ™‚

Amazing Day!

I’m having one of those amazing days. I have gotten so much accomplished this morning and everything it’s happening in perfect timing.

Not to mention, not only am I getting parking spots, but I’m getting my favorite parking spots and my favorite table in one my favorite restaurants. And they have my favorite salad dressing that is not always available.

I love this example of how the universe responds to a chain of events. When we believe and expect things to work out they do, and we attract synchronicity and more of the same energy …..it just keeps rolling!!!!

Go Universe!!!!!

This is My Happy Place

I am sitting in my Happy Happy Place which is my seasonal cottage.

I have many happy places because I choose to be happy where I am at the time, but I must admit this is one of my most favorites.

I am sipping on my coffee and enjoying my thoughts and my surroundings. It is raining off and on and the birds are singing their songs regardless.

Where are your happy places? Have you designated any? Maybe it’s a sunny window in your house or a quiet corner where you like to read.

It’s very important to have spaces that bring you comfort and are condusive to your peace of mind.

You can make any space your “Happy Space”, even your car. If you travel to and from work or even running errands, your vehicle can be a safe haven if you say it is.

Perhaps you listen to your favorite music or you use an essential oil plug in your car’s 12 volt outlet, to add fragrance and therapeutic scents. You can buy these online or at health food stores.

Life is busy so we need to leverage the opportunities that we have to work with.

Why not get creative in creating your sacred spaces. Even a tea light in a pretty candle holder can do the trick and is something you can travel with also. ๐Ÿ™‚

Bathtubs work great too ๐Ÿ™‚

Yo You!!! BFF?????

It’s check-in time? Who is your best friend? That BFF thats got your back? That person who loves you unconditionally and supports your dreams? That person who speaks highly of you and listens to you and hears you? Really hears what you are saying and what you desire?

If you don’t know who I’m talking about yet, the answer is YOU!!!! And I put that in capital letters with exclamation points ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have you listened to your own conversations lately? Do you speak to yourself with loving words and thoughts? Do you love and speak to your body in the highest regard and with gratitude for it the gift of it?

The very best friend we have in our lives is ourselves. Many of us fall down in the best friend department.

Take some time to see how you are interacting and engaging with yourself. If you need help being kinder to yourself and loving yourself, you might want to consider exploring the gift of life coaching for yourself. Life coaching can help you to learn ways to be more loving and less judgemental.

When you can have gratitude for yourself and your body and your dreams and you know that they are important, you do become your own best friend and and you get darn determined to make your dreams come true! Your soul comes alive and it responds to the words and thoughts that you so lovingly project and it makes things happen!

It’s time to get excited about life and to be that best friend that you know you can be.
