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,
Johnna Andrea Tuttle

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,

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,

Beauty of the Heart

I am feeling a beautiful sense of peace. Regardless of what is happening in the world outside of me. I am peace. I am love. I am light.

Look into your heart and you will discover you are glorious. All is well. Be still, listen, experience, embrace the peace that surpasses all understanding. Are you aware of the beauty within?

Feel into the beauty of the heart and you will free yourself from the human ego. Let go of the selfish, self-centered vibrations that keep you in bondage. Stand in the truth of who you are and give of yourself. Share with those around you and you shall receive in the process. The more you give the more you will have to give.  Give from the unlimited source within you.

Sense the vibrations of the heart and you will discover you are abundant in love, light, truth, and behold the gifts of the spirit. Do you know the depth of love that exists within you? Let go of the lower vibrations of anger, fear, hurt, sadness, and doubt. Align with your purpose in living authentically from the love in your heart.

Listen to another’s heart and you will discover the change you are seeking comes within by releasing old patterns and false beliefs about the self. Your outside world will begin to reflect your inner light and truth. You will set yourself free from the illusions of the mind.

Touch another’s heart and you will go deeper and deeper within to access your perfection.  You will see you are progressing by divine order and awaken to all that is light. There is no separation from God in this space. God has always been with you and within you. You can see the God or Goddess in each other. Spirit is calling you to remember this truth through your experiences. Are you listening?

Judge another’s heart and you will have to forgive yourself for holding on to the illusions that have caused pain and suffering. Walk no more in darkness. Choose now in the present moment to walk each step in light. You are the light. We are all sacred and holy children of God.

Open your heart and feel the precious gift of life that is taken in with each breath you take. Allow you soul to be feed. Your life is a miracle of God. Honor your soul’s path. What did your soul come here to share and teach? Are you sharing? Are you teaching others knowledge from your life experience?

Discover the light in your heart and you will know you are known by your creator. You are a beloved child of God. Awaken to the immeasurable love within your heart. Joy eternal is the nature of your spirit. Do you remember the expression of joy you are? God is calling you to the wisdom of the ages through discernment and grace. Do you hear the voice of the Master?

Seek with a pure and honest heart and the mysteries of God can be received.  Things unexplained  shall be comprehended through the soul. Let go of the mind and feel into the beauty of the heart and you will open the door to the soul…….

Love and light,

Johnna Andrea Tuttle
