Your Body Speaks

If you are willing to be still and listen,you can hear and understand what your body is saying to you. I want to share an experience with you. Last week I had oral surgery. I had a tooth that fractured and needed to be extracted. I was sad at first, however, I knew I had done everything I could to save the tooth.My journey of an extracted tooth began 15 years ago when I had a root canal.Ten years later the dentist added a crown to the same tooth. Five years after the crown the tooth fractured and needed to be extracted. It has been quite the process to save my tooth. I never thought this would be something I would have to go through. I thought that I had always taken good care of my teeth. I reflected on the choices I made prior to the root canal. I was addicted to sugar and didn’t pay much attention to nutrition and oral health. The consequences were cavities and a root canal. If there are any changes you need to make in your oral health make them now. Don’t wait until it is too late.

When I became pregnant with my son, I decided to eliminate sugar from my diet. I also learned about massage therapy, juicing, and meditation. A whole new level of health and healing had opened up to me and I started to be more conscious of what I ate and what choices I made to elevate stress. I began to educate myself about toxins and how to remove them from my body. The more I started to love and accept my body, the more aware I became of what to products to use on my body and what foods to eat. I learned about the harmful effects of fluoride and started using natural toothpaste. Eliminating sugar, eating a plant based diet, and using natural toothpaste without fluoride changed my oral health. I have had no cavities since the root canal 15 years ago. I also enjoy emotional balance from the elimination of sugar from my diet.

Why am I sharing this with you??? I care about your health!!!!!! No one taught me how to eat properly and how to listen to my body. I had to learn  the importance of self-love, and self-care through a lot of pain and suffering. You can choose pain or self love as a motivator for change. Pain is a way for your body to get your attention!!!! Your body is speaking to you letting you know you are out of balance. It could be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.It is our responsibility to STOP and listen to our body.

The body can heal itself. Letting go of the judgment of whether it is bad or good frees your body to just go through the healing process. It is just an experience! Let it be what it is and become the observer of your pain. Allow your spirit to share insights of what your experience is about. Allow whatever emotions you feel  inside of you to release. Forget what your mind is telling you about the experience and allow the miracle of your body to speak eternal truths. Our bodies hold the wisdom of ages through the voice of our soul. If you ignore your pain, numb your pain with toxic chemical substances, or avoid your pain through addictive behaviors, you cover up the miracle of who you are and the power you have within you to heal.

The greatest gift I have given to myself is making choices out of self love instead of pain and suffering. I no longer need to wait until the pain too great to make a change. Choosing to love myself and make choices to keep my body in balance allows me to go through experiences with grace and ease. Resisting pain or challenges only intensifies it. As I am open and learn to grow and flow with the pains in life, I allow my body to experience life with sacredness and honor of the miracle I am.

You are a miracle! Your body is a sacred and holy temple for your spirit. Listen to your feelings, express them, and allow the energy of your feelings to be released without judgment. Our feelings are our truth in the moment.Making it a practice to speak your truth will set you free. Freedom is yours when you are willing to be still and listen to your body speak.

Here are some of the things I enjoy doing to bring my body into balance:
1. Meditate- Meditation allows our mind to become quiet so our spirit can observe the energy of what is going on in our body. It opens our connection to our Creator so we can allow healing love and light to nourish our body and spirit.It also allows us to expand our awareness of our self  and receive inspiration for our life.

2.Yoga-Yoga helps us learn to breathe into the areas of tension when we hold a pose. Increasing our flexibility helps us to be more flexible with life. It also allows us to connect to our body, mind, and spirit with power and intention.

3.Juicing-Juicing cleanses our body of toxins and brings vitality to our cells. It increases our energy and heals the body. I juiced ginger,cucumber,and carrots to ease pain after my oral surgery instead of using prescriptions or Tylenol. It worked great!!

4.Sound Healing-Playing beautiful music can sooth the soul,calm the mind, and bring our body into balance. I also use crystal bowl sound healing to bring my chakras into balance.

5.Gemstones-Gemstones promote healing and awakening on every level- body,mind,emotions,and spirit. You can wear gemstone necklaces or do self therapy treatments to help bring your body into balance. You can find our more about healing with gemstones by sending me an email at andreaswellnesscenter@gmail.com.

6.Nutrition- When we eat  balanced meals of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains our bodies are balanced. We can focus more effectively, and our energy increases. There are foods that increase our energy and foods that decrease our energy. Making the best personal choices for our body comes through awareness of what we eat and how we feel after we eat it. If the food you eat doesn’t increase your energy after eating it, then it is time to reconsider your food choices.

7. Writing in a Journal- Writing helps us process our feelings in a healthy way. I also encourage my clients to keep two journals. The first one is to use to write down all feelings. I also suggest burning the pages when they are ready. Burning the pages is a physical action to transform the energy into something else. This is a great healing tool for people needing to release anger, fear,hurt, grief, and shame. The other journal is used as a creation journal. This is where I invite my clients to write down positive affirmations, goals, and dreams. There is great power in writing our goals down. I have manifested 21 desires this past year. A creation journal was one of the tools I used to manifest what I want.

8.Nature- Nature is one of the most powerful healing gifts for our bodies. The life force that comes from the earth balances our chakras, clears our mind, and awakens our soul. Spending time in nature is essential for our well being. If you don’t have time, make time! Even if you just spend a few minutes in the sun or lay on the grass it will make a huge difference in your life.

9.Detox Bath- An Epsom salt bath is great for relaxation and detoxification. I use 1-2 cups of epsom salt, lavender essential oil, and Master’s Miracle Soap for a great energy clearing,relaxing, and detoxing bath.I also like to add some beautiful music and candles for ambiance.

10.Self Love- It takes self-love to make the choices we need to keep our body healthy and balanced. Our thoughts about our-self is a reflection of how we treat our self and others. Having positive self talk is essential to our health. Transformation begins with a thought to believe the truth. Which is that you are loved! You are lovable! You are perfect as you are in this moment! You are growing and learning on your spiritual journey. Enjoy your life without judgment of yourself and others. Life is blissful when you do!

Love and light,

Gratitude

November is the month we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.It is a reminder to be grateful for all the blessings in our life.I have taught in my workshops that being grateful is a way of life and a state of mind rather than something we do once in a while or for the holiday season. Human beings have a tendency to be pulled down by negativity too easily. It takes spiritual strength to find the positive and good in the daily challenges of life.

Living in gratitude is more than just being thankful for what we have or thinking positively. It is feeling compassion, appreciation, and connection to others and our Creator. Let me share an example from my book Celestial Living Reflections on Love and Faith.

One evening I came home from work and was very tired. I had been working as a massage therapist 40 hours a week, which required a lot of strength and energy from me emotionally and physically. I reached for a package of salad mix that had been washed, cut, and ready to use. As I was sitting at the table I began to think of all the people that it took to grow the vegetables, harvest the vegetables,transport the vegetables to the store, and those that worked at the store to sell me the food. Something powerful awakened in me that opened a deeper level of gratitude and connection to everything and everyone on the planet. I was receiving A GIFT from many people! I felt honored through the service of so many to bring me this food that was so convenient for me to eat at this particular time. I felt like a queen eating this $3.00 package of pre-mixed salad.An enormous amount of love expanded within me and out towards all people on the earth. This spiritual experience changed how I view everything and everyone in my life.

Living in gratitude opens our eyes and our heart to love more deeply. Gratitude allows us to experience more compassion, to increases our appreciation for life, and feel our connection to humanity.

I have felt deeply loved by God through the goodness of others. Whether I have known them or not I feel the connection we have with each other and my life is blessed.

May you take some time to ponder how others may bless your life today and always.

Love and light,

Happy New Year 2015!

This is my favorite time of year. I enjoy reflecting on my experiences, growth, and the person I have become. It is a time to let go and embrace all the good I received with grateful heart. There is also an excitement I feel in my spirit thinking of what may come in the new year. I feel empowered as a creator to fulfill the desires in my heart knowing God and angels are supporting me. I celebrate my life and desire to support you to celebrate yours.

This is a time when people make their New Years resolutions. How many stick to it, I don’t really know. I do know that living in spiritual awareness is being open to countless possibilities. My desire is to align myself with the best opportunity to bring the most growth. I believe being a co-creator with God to fulfill our divine destiny is a stronger force for achieving goals than New Years Resolutions. Goals are important because they stretch us beyond what we knew we were capable of. It is also important to be open to what God would like to bless you with. Human beings can limit themselves in goals they may set for themselves. Be open to your own inspiration and the unlimited possibilities your creator has in store for you this coming year.

I have manifested over 23 goals this year, which is more than I have done in the past. Wow! I am still in awe of what I accomplished quickly and easily. Here are three of the most powerful tools  I use to manifest my desires.

1. I worked with a coach. Dr. Eve Agee helped me make a huge shift in my life financially. She has been a guest on my radio show several times. She is an amazing woman. Her website is http://www.eveagee.com.

I struggled for years supporting four children on my own, working part time, going to school, and running a business from home. It was a big change for me to receive support from someone else. I am someone who is constantly giving to others. I have dedicated my life to serving others through my work,church, and family. Being open to receive support from a coach was empowering and life changing.

2. I use a creation Journal.After I meditate in the morning and evening I write down my experience.I can hear,feel, and sense God’s will for me as I write. I also write questions and listen to my soul for the answers to come. I am always amazed at how much God desires to bless my life. It helps me to overcome my limitations.

3. I use a vision board. This is how I discovered how much I manifested over this year. I learned this tool from a workshop I attended with Kirk Duncan at http://www.3keyelements.com. I only put nine items on the board at a time. I take down what I manifest and put it in a folder. I also had a list of what I wanted to manifest in the same folder,which manifested before it got to the board! It works! I highly recommend this tool.

If you would like to know more on how to use these tools to manifest your dreams,goals, and desires call for a FREE 30 minute session. I am here to support you!

May God spread prosperity and joy in your life on this New Year and fulfill all your dreams.

Love and light,

Celebrate the Love You Are

“To love another person is to see the face of God” ~ Les Miserables
February is the month to celebrate love! Though I feel it is to be celebrated daily, it is a wonderful time to reflect and do something special for those we love. I usually buy a special treat for my children and make one of our favorite meals. I will also do something special for myself. Valentines is a  special time to celebrate and let those I love know how much I love them.

I have some self-reflection questions for you this Valentines.  Have you included YOU in your Valentines celebrations”? Will you be doing anything special to celebrate who you are and what you have to give others? When we give to others we are sharing a part of ourselves. Whether we give through a gift, a kind gesture, or share our affection, it is an extension of who we are. We are celebrating and sharing the love we are with others.It is also wonderful to receive from others. The perfect balance of giving and receiving allows us to feel whole and complete. It reminds us of the divine love within us that is eternally connected to God.

Self Criticism and negative thoughts create a barrier to love. Love can’t get in or out.  When we have a deep sense of self love, we can genuinely love those around us completely and without conditions. Self criticism spills over into your relationships like poison. Learning to master your self talk takes lots of practice! As you are persistent with mastering your thoughts by choosing the positive ones, the love that you are will shine brighter!

If you struggle with self criticism here are some steps to help you release them and become free:

1. Write down three negative thoughts that continue to pull you down and block you from giving and receiving more love?
2. Reflect on how long you have had these thoughts. How old were you when you started to believe them? Who did you hear them from?
3. Reflect on how these thoughts make you feel. Write down your feelings on the paper.
4 Ask yourself if the negative feelings are serving you in anyway? Then reflect on how you are being limited buy believing these negative thoughts and feelings.Are you ready to let them go?
5. Write down on a separate piece of paper what positive thoughts you want to choose to believe about yourself, about love, and who you are.
6. Destroy the paper with the negative thoughts. You can burn it, tear it up, or crumble it up and put it in the trash. Allow yourself to be aware of what you feel in your body when you do this.
7. Repeat your positive thoughts out loud ten times. Notice how your body feels when you do this.
8. Repeat this as often as needed to get rid of negative thoughts.

This is one of the most powerful tools I share with my coaching clients to help them break free from self criticism. It has been a powerful tool in my life and allows me to celebrate who I am and express who I am in the world freely. I share this with you because I know you have an infinite amount of love within you. This world needs your love! Those around you need your love! Your love  is powerful and can make this world a better place. It begins with changing YOUR WORLD through loving yourself first. So I  invite you to let go of anything that is in the way of you fully embracing the love that you are. The time is now to celebrate who you are!

Sending my love wrapped in peace and joy!

Blessings,

Ten Top Stress Relievers

Stress can be triggered by the pressures of everyday responsibilities. Negative life events can also cause stress. Your central nervous system is in charge of your “fight or flight” response. During stressful life circumstances the hypothalamus tells your adrenal glands to release adrenaline and cortisol. When the stress is gone the body goes back to normal. If the stress doesn’t go away or the body doesn’t go back to normal it will throw you out of balance.  Chronic stress can affect your central nervous system, respiratory and cardiovascular system,digestive system,muscular system, and immune system.

The good news is that there are natural remedies to help bring your body back into balance.

Here are some of the natural remedies I keep in my medicine cabinet:
1. Natural Calm-  Natural Calm restores healthy magnesium levels and balances your calcium intake. Calcium and Magnesium are opposites. Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract, magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. This is a powder you add to hot or cold water before you go to sleep. It also cleanses the bowels.
2. Doterra Lifelong Vitality Pack-  Doterra’s Lifelong Vitality Pack is a three part daily system of vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids,and essential oils. They provide you with potent levels of essential nutrients and powerful metabolic factors for optimal health, energy, and longevity. You can go to http://www.mydoterra.com/johnnatuttle to learn more.
3.Valerian Root- Valerian Root is know for its sedative qualities and its ability to relax the central nervous system and the smooth muscle groups. It has been used as a sleeping aid for hundreds of years. It is a non-addictive treatment for insomnia and has no side effects. It reduces the time it takes to fall asleep without changing the normal stages of sleep.
4.Melatonin- Melatonin is used for cancer prevention, strengthening your immune system, slowing down the aging process, and as a sleep aid.
5. 5 HTP- 5HTP is a naturally occurring amino acid and is the precursor and metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin. This supplement helps increase the production of serotonin. Serotonin is responsible for feelings of well being and normal sleep patterns. It is used for PMS, anxiety, depression, obesity, migraines, and insomnia.
6. B-12 Vitamins- B-12 keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy. It is a great energy booster and helps reduce depression.
7. Calm Homeopathic- Calm Homeopathic made by Hyland is great for anxiety and sleeplessness.  It is a non habit forming natural medicine. It eases your mind and body.
8.Essential oils- My favorite oils for stress are frankincense, lavender, and balance. They help with chronic stress, anxiety, and depression.
9. Gemstones- Gemstones are natural tools for relieving stress, anxiety, and stress management. Gemstones for anxiety are rhodonite, onyx,mother of pearl, amethyst, and carnelian. Wearing therapeutic gemstone necklaces can help calm your mind, body, and spirit.
10. Nature Walks- Spending time outdoors can help clear your mind, calm your emotions, and lift your spirit.

These are healthy alternatives to addictive medications. These natural remedies have no side effects and support the body’s natural healing process. There is support for you through life’s challenges. Listen to your body and choose wisely.

Love and light,

Secrets to Manifesting

 

One afternoon I was sitting quietly for a moment listening carefully for inspiration for my life. I wanted to hear something that would guide me to the next step for my life. I have desires I want to manifest that I know would be essential for my spiritual growth. I asked God to reveal ways I may be blocking myself to receive blessings from him. Limiting beliefs came into my awareness and I released all negative thoughts. I heard God’s voice clearly. His words of love, comfort, and truth opened the door to receive blessings I desired. I then felt something so powerful come over me that my heart swelled with humility and gratitude. I have discovered truths that have helped me manifest the desires in my soul. I desire to share them with you.

  1. Knowledge of Who You Are. You have to know you are a powerful creator. Through this knowledge, you will be able to manifest what you desire. Manifesting your desires helps you to embrace your God Characteristics. Being a creator requires you to give up being a victim of circumstance and blaming others for why you don’t have what you want. When we align ourselves with God’s will, we draw upon his power, the power of angels, and divine love to create from our free will. Desires from our soul are selfless, pure, joyful, peaceful, loving, expressions of our spirit. When that expression of spirit is manifest, we are manifesting the glory of God within us.
  2. Detach From the Outcome. Set the intention with faith, have no doubt, and let it go. Believe with your whole body. Begin with your thoughts, allow yourself to feel it in your heart, and embrace it completely in your body as though it has already happened. When we detach from the outcome, we don’t have to figure out how, why, or when it will manifest. It is a state of knowing it will happen in the perfect time for the highest spiritual growth of everyone involved. Let go of how you think it is going to look and you will open the door to receive it. When you FEEL something is possible and you allow the energy to be FREE of the outcome, it manifests quickly.
  3. Let Go of Limiting Beliefs. Get out of your own way. Become aware of your self-talk and release negative thoughts that limit you. The universe is always working to support you to become all that you can become. When you do not resist this process, you open the windows of heaven to enlighten your mind and support your soul’s desires.
  4. Ask a Question. Begin your day with questions and allow the universe to unfold the answers. Here are some examples: How can I help someone in need today? What can I do to make someone feel loved and supported? How can I be open to the miracles of today? How can I show my love to others? Asking the questions allows you to give up HOW the desire is going to happen. It also allows an opportunity to trust God and the universe. We become open vessels for God to manifest through us.
  5. Rejoice in The Blessings of Others. Feeling joy when others receive what they desire creates a ripple effect in our own life. We receive the same joy they have, if we open our heart to it. Celebrating other’s success dissolves feelings of envy or jealousy. There is enough for everyone. There are blessings JUST for you. It is God’s way of saying I am here, I hear you, and this is a blessing just for you, from me.
  6. Make Someone’s Dream Come True. When we can become answers to another’s prayer or support their dreams to come true we will receive gifts from God in miraculous ways. Sometimes we receive our desires when we support others in receiving theirs. The true gift of manifesting is giving and receiving through divine love.
  7. Gratitude.Lifting our heart in gratitude to our creator is the greatest power we have in manifesting our desires. We are in the glory of God when we express gratitude in all things. The light and glory of our spirit shines bright and lights the path to receive more.

Embracing our God-like qualities to become a creator of our life is our divine purpose. We take steps in this process by letting go of our negative beliefs, embracing our power to create, and supporting others and ourselves with love. It takes practice so be patient with yourself and enjoy the journey.

Love and light,

Questions that Open the Possibilities for Change

I begin my day walking in nature, pondering life, and asking God questions. One of the first questions I ask is, “How can I make a difference in the world?” This is a great way to be open to align myself with my purpose and God’s will. Some of the things we do may be grand and others things may be small. All are essential to benefit humanity. Through small and great things, we can make a positive change that will have a ripple effect on others, including ourselves.

These 10 questions can open up positive loving energy in your life and have a positive effect on those around you. Remember not to let your mind try to figure out the “How?” Let the universe figure out the how. Just open the door to the possibilities of the question you ask.

There are unlimited possibilities of how your day can unfold. Asking questions opens the doors to possibilities. These are just a few examples.  I suggest thinking of some of your own. It is important that you make it personal between you and God. If you will practice asking questions in the morning it will open your heart to the goodness within you, and the goodness in the world.

I suggest asking with real intent, humility, and a desire to serve others.   The best time to ask is first thing in the morning. Then go about your day and allow the opportunity to present itself. Then watch the miracle happen…………

 

1)      “How can I make a difference in the world?”

2)      “How can I show someone I love them today?”

3)      What emotions can I let go of today?

4)      How do I turn my weaknesses into strengths?

5)      Who do I need to forgive?

6)      What am I holding onto that no longer serves me?

7)      How can I enjoy more beauty in my life?

8)      Who can I kiss, hug, and tell I love you today?

9)      How can I share my spiritual gifts today?

10)   How much love can I accept from God today?

 

There is something more that happens than just receiving the answer to these questions. If you allow yourself to be guided you will witness the beauty of spirit unfolding before your eyes. It is a great tool to free your mind and open your heart to what is available to experience through divine power.

It is worth the experience. Give it a try!

Love and light,

Johnna Andrea Tuttle
