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,

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,

Listening to Love

I have made it a priority to listen more deeply to those who are in my life. Whether it is my children, clients, friends, strangers, or acquaintances, I know everyone has something to offer. We can deepen our relationship with others if we are willing to listen on a soul level. Some people are natural listeners, other people struggle with being a good listener. I believe that if you don’t have a natural gift to listen it is something that can be learned with practice.
Here are some lessons I have learned to become a better listener.
1. Listen to our Soul: When we tune into listening to our soul and the voice of our creator, we can learn to listen to others more deeply.Conflict can be caused by judgment of another’s behavior, not being heard or valued,and not feeling free to speak their true feelings.When someones is critical of themselves they are usually critical of others. When we learn to listen and understand ourselves we can create the safe space to listen to others.Finding value in who you are opens the opportunity to find value in what other’s have to share.
2.Look beyond Behavior: Understanding that human beings behave both consciously and unconsciously. Their behavior has nothing to do with us. They are acting out of their own free agency, whether it be positive or negative you can choose not to let it affect you.As a parent I have learned to look beyond my child’s behavior to fully understand their feelings.When I create a space for feelings to be shared freely the behavior changes in a positive way.The importance of being HEARD is transforming for the individual being heard and for the one listening. Becoming a good listener invites you to become a more loving compassionate human being.
3.Everyone has a Message: When you listen on a soul level with another human being to can learn truth from their experiences. Every soul has gained wisdom through their life experience. When we share that truth the listener and the one sharing can expand in wisdom. Truth expands when shared and received.
4. Be Present:Giving our undivided attention invites others to feel of our spirit and for us to feel theirs.This level of listening goes beyond words.

A personal experience I had last week reminded me how important it is to stop and listen to our loved ones.This experience is what inspired me to write to you today. I was sitting on my couch reading while my daughter Taylor and son Tristan were doing their homework. I had already planned the next day with projects I needed to get done for my coaching program, website, and networking. I was having problems with my website and needed to work on it to get it resolved so I could complete my other projects. I was looking forward to having time to work on it the next day.As I was sitting there my son said “Mom can you come get me for lunch tomorrow?” In that moment everything stopped for me. Tristan had never asked me this before. There was something in his voice that was longing. I felt something inside of me. I felt more than just words, instead I felt his spirit. I told him I would do what I can and mentioned what I needed to get done tomorrow. I am a person who enjoys giving someone I love surprises.  I began figuring out how I could get what I needed done to fix my website. I found a company that could take care of everything I needed and they did it quicker than I would of. I decided to surprise Tristan at school the next day. I will never forget the smile on my son’s face when he came around the corner and I was standing in the hallway of his school.  The joy of that moment is forever with me. We had a lunch at his favorite place and I quickly got him back to school as soon as I could. We didn’t say much during that quick lunch but MY PRESENCE said everything. My son thanked me four times that day and continued to come up and give me hugs throughout the evening. It was a heart warming experience that I wanted to share with you. My hope is that you will create heart warming memories in your life through listening to those you love.

Love and light,

Holidays are a Time to Reflect

December can be a stressful and busy time for most people. The holiday season is not the time to forget about your self care. Taking a few minutes to care for yourself can keep you balanced emotionally and mentally during the busy holidays. December is also a great time to reflect on the past year and focus on what you want to create for the next year. Here are some suggestions to help support you through the busy holidays:

1. Prioritize your time- When life gets busy, let go of what really doesn’t matter. Fill your day with the things that matter and make a difference. Become aware of anything that distracts you in a negative way or is a waste of time. Keeping it simple will help you get through the busy times with peace of mind.
2. Eat healthy nourishing foods- There are foods that drain our energy and food that increase our energy. Become aware of what you are eating and how you feel afterwards. Too much sugar and fat in your diet can drain your energy and cause weight gain. It can also have a negative effect on your emotional well being. Eating lots of raw fruits and vegetable, making smoothies, and juicing will help support you to  feel energized through the holiday season and all year round.
3.Meditate- Stay inspired daily through meditation. Meditation supports you by feeling your connection to God. This connection allows us feel balanced emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
4.Self Reflect- You can self reflect through meditation, journal writing, and walking in nature. Ponder on what you learned through out the year and who you became in the process.Take the time to REALLY honor the journey you have been on the  past year.It is also good to let go of any negative thoughts or feelings you are still holding onto. Don’t carry them into the new year. Let them go so you can create something new and different.
5.Nourish your spirit- Giving and receiving allows us to be open and connect with others. Reflect on what you want to give and receive that does not cost money. Allow the SPIRIT of giving and receiving to touch your heart and the heart of others.

I wish you a very Happy Holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

Love and blessings,

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,

Dreams Come True

I have wanted to go to the Redwoods for several years. Well, an unexpected trip to California landed me right in the middle of a dream come true.Do you find yourself wondering if some of the things you want will ever happen? To be honest I ponder that question often. I wonder why somethings manifest so easily and effortlessly and why somethings take time or never manifest. What is the  secret to manifesting what you want?  I don’t have all the answers. I find that manifesting my dreams is a constant learning process with God guiding me along the way. I always leave room for his dream for me to manifest and do my best to stay out of the way. I realize I am limited in what I can see to bless my life.That is when I align myself with God’s will and surrender. There are also times when my Heavenly Father reminds me that it is essential to my spiritual progression to learn to be a creator and to manifest what I want. Balancing these two important lessons keeps my faith strong and allows me the freedom to grow as a woman of God.

Here are some of the tools I use to manifest my dreams:

1.Journal Writing- The first step in manifesting is listening to the personal revelation you receive for your life. I will begin to write out my feelings and what I am going through. Then I take time to listen to what experiences Heavenly Father would like to bring into my life and write it down in my journal. Writing is taking the spiritual(inspiration) world and bringing it into the physical(journal) world. God created everything spiritually before he created it physically.
2.Vision Board- I use a nine square vision board to list the things I want to manifest. I hand write some of the items and use photos. I put three easy items, three difficult items, and three outrageous items that seem impossible. Your vision board should have different levels so you can reach beyond your limitations and create what you think is impossible,possible. I teach this method in my coaching programs. There is scientific evidence on why this method works. I won’t go into the details with you now, however you can contact me if you would be interested in learning more about it.
3.Visualization- Guided visualization is another tool to help us manifest what we want. Our mind doesn’t know the difference between a visualization and the actual experience. It accepts both as reality. When we visualize what we want our mind, body, and spirit has that experience in that moment. It is taking that spiritual inspiration and bringing it into the physical body. We have to believe it is possible before it can happen.
4.Trust- This requires us to completely trust in ourselves, our Creator, and the angels to assist us. We have to let go and trust that it will manifest. You need to realize somethings will manifest instantly and some things take time. I have also discovered that what I want to manifest changes and I have had to learn how to be flexible. Sometimes I take things off my vision board and change it. I know God is in charge and he doesn’t want to limit me in any way. I am the one that needs to stay out of my own way and not limit myself.
5.Meditation- Learning to become still and listen to your soul through meditation helps us to find the creator within us. There is a power within us that is capable of creating worlds without end. We are children of God. We have the same power he does. There is a deep humility that arises within us when we find this part of ourselves. It is beautiful awakening of our truth.
6.Expect the Unexpected- My dreams always come when I don’t expect it. This is what  makes the journey of creating so exciting and fun! I love it!
7.Accept the Gift with Gratitude- Everything is a gift from God. You created and manifested your goal or dream through the power of God. The power of God that is in you and the power of God Heavenly Father shared with you to create and manifest your dreams. Each time I receive the gift of a dream coming true, my heart opens wider to receive God’s love for me. From the simplest desire to the biggest desire I praise God for his hand in my life.

Walking in the Redwoods with my granddaughter is a dream come true I will cherish forever. I didn’t know I was going to California until I few days before the trip. My life was extremely busy and I had worked 72 hours a week reaching a goal for a career change I decided to make. My anxiety was high, I was exhausted, and my life was in transition.  I got a call from a family member who was taking a trip to California  to see some ill family members.They wanted to stop in Idaho to see me along the way. Their car wasn’t in the best condition to take a long trip.The next thing I knew I offered them use of my car to finish the trip and I was on a road trip with them to the California Redwoods. This was actually NOT the best time to take a road trip, however when what you want shows up, you take it!! Things don’t always show up exactly how you imagine, but they do show up in mysterious ways.It was a great bonding time for me and my granddaughter. The healing that occurred after one day on the beach and in the Redwoods did more for me than anything else I did all year. Even though it was a short trip the experience is something I will hold onto forever. It wasn’t just another item off my vision board. It was a dream come true!

Love and light,
