Getting My Groove Back


Reflecting on the health struggles I’ve lived with in the past couple of yearsπŸ€”I’ve broken down so many times in the last 2 years with Shingles, fatigue, pain, nausea, anxiety, and just feeling awful, spending days on end in bed. It was very difficult emotionally, I was almost convinced I’d never be able to thrive again. I prayed and cried and hoped for better health, seeking an answer to what was wrong with me and how to heal. 

Well, last December I found Medical Medium and in my desperation dove straight into his plant based dietary protocol and faith filled philosophy.πŸŒπŸƒLittle by little, with so many ups and downs, I began to find my vibrance again. 11 months later I feel like I’m back in my groove! 
The last couple weeks has been a testimony to knowing my groove is back! I cannot believe I have been able to keep up with my agenda!πŸŒͺTo be perfectly honest, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to handle everything I planned for myself in the last 2 weeks! An extra heavy workload, prepping for a solo road trip to Southern California, driving all over the LA area (nearly 1000 miles round trip), visiting with friends, attending a conference, running around Disneyland, never taking a break to rest in all the busyness, then going straight back to work with a full schedule. 
I was actually worried I’d put too much on my agenda and I would break at some point or have to call in sick to work when I came back home. 

But excitedly I never fell apart, I have just kept going! This truly would not have been possible in the last 2 years with all the health struggles that kept holding me back. 

Well, here I am today reflecting on the high capacity I’ve been able to strongly sustain and continue to roll with. If not for the dietary protocol I’ve been on I don’t believe I would be in such a vibrant state. 
Yes, I am still repairing and am very aware of what I need to do to fully heal, so I will continue on this fruit filled, veggie munching, celery juice and lemon water drinking protocol.πŸ’š
Thanks to all who have supported me in my healing journey and (I will say it again and again) thank you Medical Medium for delivering your message!πŸ™Œ

Before and After AmazementΒ 

Feeling the need to make a psoriasis before and after postπŸ˜‰The pic to the left is my right hand in February and the pic to the right is the same hand today.πŸ™€

When I look back at my psoriasis photo journal I am astounded to see where I was compared to where I’m at now.πŸ’πŸ½I am still working away from the psoriasis I host as well as shingles, adrenal fatigue, tinnitus, overall fatigue, and brain fog but the difference in my skin and my life today verses where I was at in February is amazing.πŸ™Œ

Through an 80/10/10 raw vegan diet which I began in March I’ve been able to accomplish such clarity in my skin as well as my physical health!πŸŽπŸŒπŸπŸ‹πŸ‰πŸˆ

This picture does not just represent where I’m at with my skin issues but it also, metaphorically, is a representation of where I’m at with my overall physical and emotional health!πŸ’›So mind blowing how much every part of my life has improved since embarking on this life changing foods journey!!β˜€οΈ

Another phenomenon is the color of my skin! I’m actually not sure if it is the lighting in the pics or the mass quantities of plant materials I consume but there is a tremendous difference in my skin tone in these pics!πŸ€”Whatever it is that presents such a difference in my skin tone is a mystery to meπŸ‘

Anywho, I just just had to share with you all because I’m just feeling so motivated to continue this journey and support you all in continuing or embarking on your journeys!!πŸ’–Much love and absolutely gratitude to you all and a big giant thank you to Anthony William the Medical Medium for presenting this healing protocol to the world!!πŸ˜‡πŸ™Œ

No Challenge, No Growth

“You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead it’s important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages” -Michelle ObamaπŸ’›

Viewing struggle as negative life experience used to be the norm for me. My new outlook: struggling emotionally, in personal relationships, financially, or with ones physical health can actually be a catalyst to amazing personal growth! 

Believe me, I know struggle and I feel blessed to have lived through so much of it! If not for the hard times I would not have learned about powerful qualities like discernment, trust, setting boundaries, loyalty, experiencing true friendships, when to stand up for myself, or when to walk away. 

Being a young, struggling single mom was one of the greatest life lessons I could have ever lived through. Learning how to be a grown up while concurrently raising a child was awesomely difficult yet taught me almost everything I know about surviving in this world! 

Without struggling with my health I never would have learned about the physical and emotional healing processes, which have given me so much insight on how strong I really am. 

I’m just so grateful for the challenges life has handed me. If not for the tears, the fear, the sleepless nights filled with worry, the heartbreaks, the anxiety, the really really hard parts of life…I wouldn’t be so well versed at problem solving, I wouldn’t know how much wealth I have in family and friendships, or who is truly there for me, I would not have learned about many of my blessings, abilities, and strengths! 

Facing the unknown and the darknesses which life presents can be powerful medicine for creating healthy boundaries for oneself and show you what you are truly capable of! 

So I shall continue to face my fears, walk into the darkness with a blazing fiery torch of self empowerment, look at my adversities as opportunities, and I invite you to join me! Your greatest struggles can be powerful catalysts to knowing your greatest strengths and I believe you deserve to know your most powerful self! 

Many blessings, much peace, and absolute love to you all! πŸ™

We Are Here For One AnotherΒ 


“From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other – above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.” -Albert EinsteinπŸ’›

Made myself a quart of “Living Water” today and when I was reading my book my fur baby helped himself to my jar of goodness!!😽 His name is Bro and I LOVE HIM!!

 If you’ve never heard of πŸ’¦Living WaterπŸ’¦ well I have a little info for you. Living Water comes from flowing natural bodies of water and springs from underground, which are mineral rich from the Earth.🌍

The way we have our water delivered to us is through processes that actually do not allow for it to stay charged with the minerals we need to thriveπŸ™€ Therefore, we cannot properly hydrate. 

Most of us are actually chronically dehydrated and drinking water from our usual delivery systems does not properly hydrate our cells. When our water is stored in plastic bottles, flows through plumbing, is delivered through reverse osmosis, or distilled, it actually loses its mineral rich life. 

No need to worry because the answer to properly bringing our water back to life is rather simple😻 The act of adding berries, cucumber, or citrus to your water can bring it back to life! πŸ“πŸ’¦πŸ‹πŸ’¦ Putting your water into a glass container and letting it sit in the sun will actually bring life back to it as well!! β˜€οΈπŸ™Œ 

When I began this practice of drinking Living Water I noticed a tremendous difference in my body. This practice has assisted me in moving forward in my healing process, my moods are more balanced, I’m not anxious, I’m not constantly thirsty, my mind is far more focused, my skin is far more supple…so many reasons to practice this awesome activity of bringing our water back to life!πŸ˜‡ Don’t just take my word for it, just see how much Bro enjoys it!!

With absolute love and gratitude, blessings to all!πŸ’› 

Healing With Nature


“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished”- Lao Tzu πŸ™Œ 

Just arrived home from a quick jaunt out to Bodega Bay, California, to dip my toes in the ocean and spend some time observing the power of Mother Nature. As always, I have my trusty daily supplements of Lemon Balm, Licorice Root, Nettle, and Raspberry Leaf organic herbal teas by Traditional Medicinals πŸƒβ˜•οΈπŸŒΏ 
The deeper I surrender to this healing process the more I am called to spend time in nature. Basking in the sunlight and moonlight, star gazing, walking barefoot in the garden, spending time with coastal California redwoods, watching the bees at work, listening to healing birdsong, strolling along the shoreline and gently dipping my toes in the brisk Northern California ocean waters are all activities which call me to engage in. The more time I spend with the wonders of our Mother Gaia, the less I find myself concerned with the world of “manufactured happiness”. 
I now find far less value and entertainment in television, celebrities, and keeping up with what’s trending. I have found the wonders of nature far more healing and compassionate to my individual journey than finding value in activities and observations of things that have nothing to do with me. The gifts from the Earth have everything to do with my journey and give me everything I need to be well.🌍
How Mother Nature can love me is far more healing and satisfying than celebrating competition, keeping up with what society says is best, and knowing about fads, or who’s famous. I have come to find the divine gifts from the Earth are never competitive or have judgements about my processes. 
To surrender to the Earth I was born from has been tremendously healing and I just can’t get enough of what our Mother Gaia has to offer to us all. I invite everyone to take some time to observe, listen to, and absorb the healing treasures of nature. πŸŒ²πŸπŸŒΌπŸŒ±πŸ•ŠπŸŒΎπŸŒΉβ˜€οΈπŸšπŸŒ™πŸžπŸ’« 

A Voice For The Silenced


β€œIt is okay to suffer. But as long as you talk about it, it is not a weakness. Weakness is having a problem and not recognizing it and not solving that problem.”-Prince Harry β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ 
Why I blog…I blog to be a voice for the suffering. Those of us who suffer from illness, loss, and trauma all have a common theme amongst our lives, the theme of being silenced. 
We have been told, “There’s nothing wrong with you.” or “You look perfectly healthy.” or “It’s all in your head.” or “You did this to yourself.” or “Suck it up.” or “Get over it.” or “You’re crazy.” or “You should have, you could have, you need to…” 
All of these phrases can strangle the suffering into silence which can cause great emotional pain, fear, loneliness, and hopelessness. I know this because I have had every one of these phrases delivered to me from the voices of those who do not understand suffering or who do not want to understand suffering. 
To talk about our pain and be given a compassionate hand to hold and to be truly held is absolute medicine. This is why I blog. 
As chronic illness is exponentially growing in our world the voices of the ill must stop being silenced and they must be given a voice, listened to, heard, held. Everyone knows someone who suffers, so I say please listen, please give compassion, please open up to the idea that those who suffer need to be heard. 
For those who suffer, here is someone who understands you, here is someone who holds you in regard, here is someone who absolutely believes in you. I live to help those who have been silenced into loneliness, despair, and hopelessness. I support your voice, your wellness, your dreams, your life’s desires, your authenticity. You deserve a voice. 
With absolute love and complete gratitude, blessings to all. πŸ™
