From Bedridden to Blissful: How Holistic Health Saved My Life

healing holistic health Jun 26, 2018

Have you ever been so desperate to heal yours that you will try anything? I had that experience for the first time in the summer of 2010. 

I had been struggling for years with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. My body and mind were extremely imbalanced. 

The doctors I was seeing prescribed 9 different psychiatric medications. I was on 11 medications total.

Over the course of 4 years, I had gained 100 pounds and became unrecognizable to myself and those who loved me. Chronic pain, suicidal thoughts, insomnia, daily migraines, digestive issues, constipation, and hypothyroidism ruled my life. 

Full of anger, hurt and shame, I was not able to take care of myself and had to live with my parents. I even attempted to take my own life and was hospitalized for over two months healing from the damage the overdose caused. 

From Bi-Polar to Blissful 

My nephew Porter's birth in 2009 opened my heart up to love again. I not only wanted to be alive, I wanted...

The 7 Chakras Changed My Life

I was first introduced to the chakras in a Polarity class at The Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, or SWIHA. It was one of the first classes I took as a new student. I remember being very confused and felt lost and overwhelmed. 

As I studied and applied the chakras to my life, a new world opened up for me. I was able to access my system and life in a healthy way. Balance and bliss became my new normal. 

What Are The Chakras?

Chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit. The chakras are energy centers that correlate with the major glands in our body. 

Chakras are not a part of the physical body, but are subtle energy fields surrounding the activities of the body.

When I learned how to approach chakras from an elemental perspective, I was able to apply them to my everyday life. 

Applying this ancient energy modality to my life brought my body back to balance. My mind was restored. I reconnected to God in new ways. 

I began to...

How to Ditch Pills and Medication Using Holistic Health

self-healing Feb 06, 2018

My life changed when I discovered I could heal my chronic issues all on my own. I had been sick for years and was on a cocktail of 11 different medications, 9 of them psychiatric medications.

The doctors I worked with told me I would have to take medications for life to treat my bipolar disorder, migraines, hypothyroidism, insomnia, chronic pain and ADHD. I was given a new meditation each time one stopped working, or if I needed to counteract the side-effects of a drug I was currently on. 

The pills made me sicker than any of my illnesses. I hated my life and myself. I gained 100 pounds in just a few years and could not even function. Unemployable and unable to care for myself, my parents had to take me in.

The below pictures were taken in 2008/2009. I was struggling with inflammation. Weight and skin issues were just a few of the physical symptoms I struggled with.

The below picture is with my nephew Porter. He is an amazing healer. Just holding him cleared up my skin issues...

A Bliss-Scription for Releasing Anger & Frustration

This blog is a Bliss-scription for people who are ready to let go of the anger and frustration in their life. We have a world full of frustrated and inflamed people right now. The election of 2016 brought out repressed feelings and emotions in many people. A whole new level of anger and hate is being revealed.

There are wars, domestic violence, and religious intolerance. Rape culture is everywhere. When I originally wrote this Bliss-scription, it would be another year before the Harvey Weinstein scandal would break. The outrage is just the beginning of a long journey toward healing. I see many opportunities for growth and transformation.

Understanding Anger & Inflammation

The environment around you is filled with things that will inflame your body and mind. Foods like sugar, dairy, gluten, artificial sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup, caffeine and processed foods will create inflammation in the gut and in turn inflame your thoughts and behaviors.

Toxins in our food, air, and...

10 Powerful Journal Questions For Body Awareness & Healing

journaling mind/body Nov 25, 2017

Writing Heals 

Writing can help you explore your unconscious thoughts and beliefs and creates a space for you to process deep emotions.

There is not a right or wrong way to write or journal your thoughts. I have a friend who purges her thoughts and writes every morning for at least an hour. She just lets her mind wander and writes whatever flows into her consciousness.

Once you have written three pages, you have cleared away the conscious mind chatter and are writing from your subconscious mind.It’s a great way to understand your thoughts on a deeper level.

I invite you to look back through old journals if you have them. Notice what you began writing about after page three. What changes can you see in perspective?

Dig Deep For Maximum Healing

Writing is a powerful way to understand your thoughts and beliefs on a deeper level. If you do not enjoy journaling, I invite you use videos or audio recordings to document your journey.

Those who prefer meditation can spend a few...

How Honoring My Shadow Helped Me Heal From Bedridden Depression

Hiding My Darkness Stole My Light

Life has a natural polarity to it. There are ups and downs, good times and bad times. Our earth experiences polarity each day as the sun rises and sets.

If there is light, there will also be darkness. If there is health, there will also be hardship. Our failures and weakness are brought to us so we can learn and grow. Denying the darkness within us leads to pain and suffering.

If we hide away our pain and fail to honor our hurts, our dark side, or Shadow Self, will begin to cause us pain.

Debbie Ford was the creator of The Shadow Process , brought shadow healing to the world. 

Ford states, "The shadow contains all the parts of ourselves that we try to hide, deny or suppress. It is the keeper of all the aspects of ourselves that we dislike and the qualities that we judge as unacceptable. Most of us expend huge amounts of energy trying to get rid of or control these unwanted aspects of ourselves. We hope that by hiding or fixing our...

Use Your Subconscious Mind to Access the Akashic Records

What Is The Akashic Records

Life is full of unanswered questions and mysteries. People who believe in an afterlife look forward to eternal life, believing that is when all of their questions will be answered.

What would life be like if we were able to gain the knowledge we seek now? There is a belief among healers and some religious groups that somewhere in the form of energy, resides all the knowledge of the universe.

It’s called the Akashic Records, or Library of Knowledge. The Akasha are a compendium of all human events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent that have ever occurred. Past, present, or future.

The first time I heard about the Akashic Records, I thought of the Catholic belief in final judgement. According to the Catholic doctrine, a person will receive a life review with Jesus. He stands with you as you review your entire life from start to finish seeing all perspectives and are able to see how everyone thought and felt.

Let Intuition Be Your Guide

Life Coaching is a powerful modality that can support people in becoming their greatest self. Working with a Life Coach saved my life and helped me break free of bedridden depression and pain. 

My coach was an intuitive healer who combined her gifts with coaching tools to help me break free. Working with her allowed me to uncover my own intuitive gifts and heal from mental illness. 

I was so moved by my own transformation, I decided to become a Life Coach and Holistic Practitioner. I used my own intuitive gifts to guide me through my sessions. 

What Is An Intuitive Life Coach? 

The job of an Intuitive Life Coach is to ask you powerful questions to create awareness and help you access your own intuition and inner healer.

Do You Need a Business Coach?

Opening your own business can be a challenge, even for the most gifted business person. Hiring a Life Coach helps you stay focused and on track. 

Most of the clients I coach are healers and practitioners who are ready to create their Bliss Business, but feel overwhelmed and do not know where to begin.

Limiting beliefs and life blocks can keep gifted coaches and practitioners from opening their bliss business. 

Find Your Cheerleader

Having a Life Coach as your cheerleader can keep your momentum going when those around you bring you down. You need someone to hold space for your dreams and help you achieve them. 

Families and friends can be big blocks to creating a Bliss Business. It can be challenging to get loved ones to see your vision and let go of their own fears and beliefs. 

Many of my clients have blocks with technology and promoting themselves. Each client is different and their values and life circumstances...

Using Past Life Regression to Heal Your Body, Mind, and Spirit

Breaking Free of Karmic Loops

You are the sum of all your memories and experiences. Time and space are an illusion. The past, present, and future are all happening now. 

The memories and experiences of your ancestors are stored within your tissues, cells, and subconscious. You are so much more than right here and now. 

Past Life Regression can help you release the past and provide you with clarity and healing so that your future is full of bliss.

What Is Past Life Regression?  

Regression work is a powerful way to create transformation and gain a deeper understanding of what is happening in your life. 

Time ceases to exist when you are using your subconscious mind. Any lifetime, or experience, is available for you to heal and understand. Your subconscious mind knows which life to reveal to you based on what you are seeking to heal. 

Most of my clients experience at least one regression with me. Even clients who are skeptical about past lives have had...
