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,
