Natural Cleaning

Over the last few years I have transitioned out of chemicals and into natural cleaning. Gosh, I wish I had known all this when I was raising kids.😳

Think about this—our grandparents cleaned with natural things like vinegar, baking soda, lemons, washing soap, etc…and then companies came along and mass produced synthetic and chemical filled “cleaners”.

All those products with repeated exposure can cause serious health risks. The constant cycle of illness and hormonal imbalance may be a result of exposure to these chemicals. (I am happy to share my research if you’d like it)

Our skin is our largest organ, and our lungs are the filters for our oxygen that goes into our blood and our brain, and we are touching and breathing that stuff in? 😳🤦🏼‍♀️

I now choose to clean naturally.

🍋amazing all purpose cleaner for counter tops, sinks etc.

🍋 I make a sink/tub scrub

🍋 floor cleaner

🍋 shower door spray

🍋laundry soap

🍋 wood polish

🍋fabric softener

🍋window cleaner

🍋sanitizing wipes

🍋carpet freshener

If you are done exposing you and your famly to chemicals and want to learn more, send me an email. l am happy to share my experiences and recipes.

Happy cleaning!

The Fear

“…it doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive..”

Our age defines how long we have walked this earth but not what we have done with this precious time. Being alive isn’t enough.  Truly living and taking the risks for our dreams and for our longings is our divine responsibility.  Fear is part of being fully alive.

The longing must be larger than the fear. The desires must be more than the risks to look like a fool for your dreams.

Part of facing the fears is that we must also learn to let go and surrender.

Are you willing to surrender the way you have seen yourself and how others may have seen you?  You know, those labels and temporary identifiers that we have inherited over time; mother, friend, employee, father, etc.  Although we value these, their dominance in our lives can sometimes not allow us to live out the other aspects of our lives.  The calling of the soul is not particularly concerned with the day-to-day responsibilities like packing lunches, paying bills and cleaning the house.

All of our deepest desires are our soul’s way of calling us back to simply being who we are.  To move forward with our desires we have to allow ourselves to stumble and to fall. If we are truly awake, we can catch glimpses of profound wisdom that gets lost in the daily experiences and that may lead us back to ourselves.

Think of something you deeply desire. Feel what it will feel like to have this.  Touch that place in your that knows this desire.  Now, look at the fear that takes up space from where you are now and where that destiny is fulfilled. Feel that space filled with fear and identify what it is.

For me, I desire freedom.  I desire connection.  I desire living my purpose.

I fear failing.  I fear letting people down.  I fear loss.  I fear instability.

Are you willing to look like a fool and risk moving through the fears to get your desires? I am and gladly walk alongside anyone willing to do the same. Consider joining me this week in my yoga classes to explore this on the mat.

Investing in Wellness

This is such a common thought when it comes to our health. Years ago I was fine spending money on so many things unrelated to health and would make the excuse “I don’t have money for that” when it came to something for my health or wellness.

When I first invested in quality essential oils I thought the same thing and even got the smallest starter kit I could. I wasn’t sure they would do what people claimed and I was on a tight budget. And I had many medical bills I was working to pay off! I get it. Your hard earned money is important to you.

However, I started to shift the way I thought about it. I began to realize I was paying for my illness rather than investing in wellness.

Check it out. When you are sick you’ll likely have the following costs:

👨‍⚕️ doctor co-pay

💊 prescription drugs

💊 over the counter drugs

💵 missed income

What if instead of investing in your illness, you started investing in your WELLNESS and used essential oils to help you stay healthy? You know, like preventative care and then having natural solutions in hand to work fast with your body, instead of the reacting style of medicine we’ve grown used to.

This month when you get started investing in wellness with essential oils you’ll also get $50 in free oils to keep growing your wellness.

Seriously. And ask yourself why you’re investing in illness? I would love to help you shift your thinking to wellness—mindset, diet, exercise and essential oils.

Wellness Wednesday—Deep Breathing

Wellness Wednesday! (A day late☺️)

Do you ever feel like you can’t catch your breath, or you’re mind is spinning, or even your physical body feels tense and tight?

I know for me sometimes my busy schedule can make me feel like this. We know that there is correlation with stress and cortisol levels, and cortisol levels lead to not so good diseases.

Check this out though! Science says controlled breathing may help alleviate stress. Simply taking mindful and full breaths can lower your stress, which means your cortisol is lower.

Plus you’ll be an overall happier person! Take some deep breaths, fill your lungs and then smile!

The Longing

This week in my yoga classes we are beginning the journey into the poem The Invitation, by Oriah Mountain Dreamer.

I was exposed to this poem twelve years ago and it one I go back to time and time again. Imagine my happiness when I stumbled upon the book that was written from the poem itself.

This week we start out with “it doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing”.

Can you?

Can you speak the unspeakable and state, from your heart, what you want? What you need? What you desire? Can you finish this statement—it doesn’t interest me to have…when what I really want is…

For me,

I doesn’t interest me to have a large group of friends, what I really need is one that understands me.

It doesn’t interest me to have a huge house, what I really want is a home full of love.

It doesn’t interest me to be rich, what I really want is to know I made a difference.

As we explore this on the mat, we will be asked to look at our thoughts, our avoidances, our comparisons and our truth.

Can we each meet our hearts longing? Can we dare to dream?

Can you? Start by finishing this–

I want…

I need…

I desire…

Breathe with those statements for 5-6 breath cycles. Then finish this–

It doesn’t interest me if I ever have…what I really want is…

Now speak the unspeakable and listen.

Wellness Wednesday

Wellness Wednesday!

I was recently asked about my wellness and self care routine for an upcoming article. I used to never practice self care and my overall health was poor. I was angry, toxic, heavy (in all areas) and just an overall hot mess.

I began a consistent self care routine about 12 years ago and now it is a crucial part of my life. My mind, body and spirit thank me.

My self care routine is vital to me being able to show and serve the people in front of me day after day. Teaching anywhere from 25-30 yoga classes each week to adults with disabilities can be exhausting physically and emotionally.

The way that I recharge and make sure that I have enough to give includes:

• at least two walks per day, even if it’s just for 20 minutes. I begin my day with walk, and end with a walk. If I am lucky, I grab a lunch walk too. I often pack a lunch that is easy to eat while walking and I always keep an extra pair of walking shoes in my car for impromptu walks.

• I wake up very early every day so I am able to get in my planning time/calendar time—which keeps me grounded and centered—as well what I call spirit time; I might journal or pull cards, or sometimes just sit and be, like meditation or breathing.

• I take at least one bubble bath per day, though most days it’s two. I either catch up on emails or leave my phone aside and relax into the bubbles. If I’m feeling behind, getting work or marketing or graphics made during bath time is actually more relaxing that putting off these tasks for another time. I tend to not relax until the tasks are all completed.

• I use essential oils daily—part of self care and slowing down is learning to listen and intuitively know what my body is needing. I use them for a variety of uses and have spent years educating myself on their benefits and properties. I feel empowered that I have choices and can use them effectively to treat pain, sleep, energy and much more.

• I get 2-3 massages per month as part of my self care practice. I used to think it was an indulgence. Now I realize it is a necessity.

• I practice mindful eating habits and choose small meals 3x a day and drink plenty of water.

What does your self care look like?
