Getting back into the Routine..

The routine is changing... again!

In the past, change has been so difficult for me. I'm learning to go with the flow of things a little bit more, trying to be less resistant to things.. if I'm not it only makes things harder and sometimes painful.

So.. the kids are getting ready to go back to school in about a week. My babies are growing up! This will be the first year I have free time everyday (more than SIX HOURS of free time) in over 8 years. I have to admit, I'm a little nervous (sounds crazy, I know).

For the past 8 years I've had someone to look after, almost constantly. In some way someone has dictated how and what I could do for so long now.. I'm not exactly sure what to do with my time. I guess maybe cleaning up the past 8 years would be a good start... I was thinking of starting with one of the older closets first (ha, ha, ha!)

Oh well.. change is good.. just have to take a deep breath (ok, maybe several) and take the first step...

I use affirmations everyday. It's such an amazingly simple tool that helps create change (relatively effortlessly) in your life. Some of the affirmations I use include:

All is Well
Only Good Comes to Me
Everything is happening Perfectly and for my Highest Good

So, I know.. even though change is coming.. All is Well, because Only Good Comes to Me. Everything is Happening Perfectly for my Highest Good! Say that about 500 times (I'm not kidding) in your mind today and see what wonderful things begin to happen for you. One small example I'd love to share is a few weeks ago I actually found my diamond earring that I lost over 4 years ago... It was no where near where I even lost it! It was as if it just fell from the sky! So amazing.. and I'm so grateful that it came back to me after all this time.

Everyday really can be filled with Magic & Miracles... all you have to do is Believe!

Another wonderful thing to do (especially if you'd like what you are affirming to manifest quicker) is spend a bit of time cleaning up your diet. I'm sure there is something you can take away or add to help improve your nutrition a bit! And.. every little (even the tiniest) improvement you make helps.. I promise!

So, this week I've decided to start juicing again. Summer is such a beautiful time to eat, all the wonderful fruits and veggies that are in Season are just waiting for us to enjoy them. I try and juice in the morning and/or the afternoon (you always want to drink the fresh juice on an empty tummy). I have a Jack LaLanne juicer (which is on SALE at right now for $89 - that's an awesome deal!) I've gone through several of the his juicers now (quick tip: don't ever put the parts in your dishwasher!) and they all work really great and are totally easy to clean (another quick tip: use a bottle brush instead of a sponge).

Over the years I've found a few different recipes that I like, it really depends on what you'd like to achieve through your diet as well (food is a wonderful healer and truly is the best medicine..). Right now I've been drinking my favorite recipe:

  • 1 Green Apple - Good Source for Vit C, Fiber, Pectin, Lutein & Boron
  • 1 Large Cucumber - Good Source for Vitamin K, Potassium, Manganese and Vit C
  • 6-8 Celery Stalks - Good Source for Folate, Vit A & Vit K
Be sure to peel the apple and the cucumber if they're not organic. You just wash everything, cut it up and push it through the juicer... yummy! Nutritionally this drink can help with so many things.

I first started drinking it about 3 years ago. I was getting about 5-6 really bad bloody noses every year. I had tried everything I knew to do and still wasn't getting any results, so I turned and looked to food (vitamins & minerals) to see if I could figure something out. Eventually I (note: not the doctors) figured out that I was deficent in Vit K. We need to eat Vit K even though our bodies also make Vit K. If your digestion is 'off' or the balance between good and bad bugs is 'off' in your system, you may have a problem with bleeding. So, I started eating a handful of raw broccoli everyday, drinking my favorite juice and I also began taking probiotics. At night instead of using Vaseline I switched to Neosporin (which I only have to use maybe once or twice a month now instead of everyday).

And now.. no more bloody noses... ya!

It's amazing how we can really help to heal ourselves, if we can just quiet down enough to listen to what our bodies are trying to tell us. All the answers you'll ever need to know are inside of you... just ask and be open to hearing the answer, it will come to you. You know more about your own body than anyone else on the planet.. trust yourself, trust your intuition, and don't forget to go with the flow!

Have a Beautiful Day~
