Wow! They made the news!

oils are
As I sit here “doctoring” my cold with essential oils creating a “t-shirt tent” (placing oils on neck and chest; pulling t-shirt up over nose, & inhaling) and web surfing I came across this news segment from February! I am so thrilled to see essential oils making the news once again!

Click here to watch the news segment – The mommy health trend of oiling away illness

Plant healing has been around since the beginning of time; it is about time we get back to the “natural” way of healing. We were gifted everything we need here on earth to help us survive; we just need to open our hearts and our eyes to see what is staring directly at us. Modern medicine is great for serious conditions but we have come to accustomed to the “quick” fixes that half way work and could cause more harm than good.

There truly is an oil or oil blend for everything! The oils have defiantly changed my my medicine cabinet and the way I approach my everyday life from PMS, colds, headaches, stress/anxiety, weather blues, weight loss, digestion issues to my everyday cleaning solutions.

Young living oil is being shown here, I prefer to use doTerra Certified Therapeutic Grade Oils.
Spreading the news of alternative ways of loving our body as much as our body loves us.

Hugs and Blessings,

Vicki

Are we a walking commercial?

Just be the guiding light within you
Just be the guiding light within you.

When did our life become an advertisement board instead of living life to live? Wearing the right clothes, saying the right thing, having the right haircut? Having the right dialect? Exaggerating your talents with smoke and lights?

What happened to just being you, walking and talking from your heart, being a walking example of God’s law without the bells and whistles?

We are not any better than the next, some may have different talents, different missions, and a different purpose; does that make us wrong? NOPE! It just makes us unique, just like we were meant to be! Those with the same passion build a team and work together, become a tribe. But, in the long run we all have the same mission, to do the best we can at that given moment.

So who am I? Just me, a daughter of the King being guided along in His path. Providing my love to all those who enter this path even if it is just giving a smile, a wink, a hug, advice or just a listening ear. I don’t have bells and whistles or smoke and lights; it’s just me, my tribe and God leading the way in His light and glory!

So for all those who are trying to “fit” in or “be” someone you aren’t STOP!!

I leave you with this, it is impossible to “fit” a right-handed glove on the left hand! You are beautiful and bright just the way you are.

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”    ― Dr. Seuss,

Hugs and Blessings to you!

Romans 8:28 
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Today’s Health Tip – Stretching

Have you seen this video? I am in awe of those who can participate in gymnastic type dance; those who can contort their bodies in positions that just don’t seem to be possible with grace and poise. They become so “rubber band” like; but even a rubber band breaks. So how does stretching benefit our health? 

In researching this I found some interesting tidbits:

1.  The Mayo clinic states NOT to stretch cold muscles -  before stretching, warm up with light walking, jogging or biking at low intensity for five to 10 minutes. Or better yet, stretch after you exercise when your muscles are warmed up.

2.  Dr. Oz states to stretch first thing in the morning

There is defiantly some controversy on when you should stretch but they all agree that stretching is important.

Benefits:
increases circulation
improve flexibility
improves range of motion  
increases strength
increases endurance
increases jump height
reduces stress

* remember your heart is a muscle, so when you stretch your body muscles your heart is also getting a stretch. 

So, have you stretched today?

Hugs and Blessings,
Vicki

Today is YOUR day

soar

Only you can choose to make a difference; if it is a change in yourself or for others. When you are ready to make the difference your life will automatically start changing. Lead with your heart, be kind to all and bulldoze your way through obstacles that surface. 

As Dr. Seuss said

“You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!” 

― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Ephesians 4:22-24 ESV
To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Happy?

Happiness

What is happiness?
                  the state of being happy.

Everyday we make choices in our life including waking up and getting out of bed. Do we lay there all day enjoying the comfort of feeling safe or do we get up and face life head on?  We choose how we are going to react to a situation; are we going to cry over spilled milk, are we going to look at the glass as being half full or half empty? Everyday we choose to be happy or we can choose to be a grumpy old stooge.  Continue reading

Today’s Health Tip – Patience 

I have been thinking a lot about patience and quick fixes. On the way home today from a networking workshop this occurred to me. 

The Gold medal, the CEO position, or the Grammy wasn’t earned overnight. Each day it took practice, education, trials, fails, experiments and persistence to get to that level.  So, with losing weight or making any lifestyle change this too will not be an overnight success; First of all, it didn’t take overnight to get where you are, so it is going to take time to get where you want to be. Therefore, treat each day as a practice run or a learning experience. Be kind to yourself and never give up. The gold medal, the CEO position or the Grammy is just around the corner. 

Galatians 6:9  Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Hugs and Blessings,

Vicki Manuel
