Happy Monday friends!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent the weekend by the lake visiting my parents and mom for mothers day. Lola enjoyed it immensely and it was a weekend of many firsts for her! We enjoyed lots of fresh air and vitamin D as well. Bonus! My oh my how Lola has grown.
These past few months have definitely been different for me. Instead of forcing what isn’t or what cannot be I have been intuitively following what feels right for me and my health and life in general. “Going with the flow” so to speak…trusting the universe has my back and will provide and closely paying attention to its clues/cues. I have been putting spoken word out into the universe each morning and following the path of faith for my life and those around me. I wanted to introduce you to a list of what I have followed (looking back) these are the things that seem to be working for me and what I have had to go through to get to where I am today.
- Following that Gut Feeling
I guess you could call it a spiritual awakening of sorts which happened leading up to my wedding this past year. I knew there was more out there for my life. I felt that I am here for a bigger purpose and that I was meant to help people in some way. Of that I was sure. I felt that by dealing with my own health issues – I could shed some light on these sort of issues that others might be going through too. I knew I had to dive into my health issues and start to heal from the inside out and that some how this would in a big way contribute to my future. I started by visiting with a nutritionist and naturopath who put me on the right path as far as diet and supplements go. I found out what was invading my body and causing most of the trouble. I got some medium readings in order to decipher what I was thinking and feeling and seeing. I learned about emotions and how they can get stuck in the body and how important it is to let them flow rather than allowing them to invade our body and thoughts. I pay attention to reoccurring signs and symbols that may be taking place around me and keep note of them. We are all born quite intuitive – we just need to get over ourselves and pay attention to the world around us. W
To get to a place where you can intuitively heal yourself it takes a certain amount of acknowledgement of how we got here in the first place. Whether it be self inflicted or family trauma from the past, we must step into living in this very moment and realize that this moment is the key to healing. What can we do today to shed our past and relieve worries and anxieties about our future? We need to find what works for us…it could be writing, journaling, yoga, meditation and very well could be a combination of things. What we do in this moment matters. We must be mindful, present and open to health and well being. We must do whatever we can to shield ourselves from the negativity of this crazy world. We must learn to not play the victim but to continually overcome, learn, and grow. I Jocelyn, acknowledge the role that my past has played in leading to my health spiraling out of control but I will no longer allow that to dictate my current and future health and growth.
3. Studying, researching and analyzing
We must spend some time studying, researching and analyzing our life and behavior in order to heal ourselves. We need to get away from the screen and cut the cord to anything that no longer serves us. We need to turn off the news and spend some time outside. I personally took a break from my smart phone and laptop. I took a break from watching T.V and the morning news. I took a good look inside my life like a fly on the wall and realized how out of control my consumerism and spending habits had gotten. It made me feel “icky” and realizing that I needed to make a deep change in my life. I spent some time going through my closet and donating items that I no longer wear, cleaned out each room in the house and spent quality time with my husband. We set up a tighter monthly budget that will serve us more going forward together. We should refuse to play the victim any longer.
Realize that emotions play a huge roll in our path to healing and health. Intuitive healing involves taking a look at our trapped emotions and learning how to safely release them in order to live in the now and no longer harboring them in our body and mind. Some of us easily take on the emotions of others and feel all mixed up after we have been in large crowds – similar to that of an introvert. We need to take time to be alone and to release those emotions that are not our own or what does not serve us and be able to have that time alone to recharge our batteries. What has helped me has been to write about things that may have negatively affected me and in a way it’s releasing them from myself. You might release yours differently. It’s about finding whatever works for you, personally.
We must put in the work and listen to our intuition in order to figure out how we are going to heal. I completed two rounds of the 30 day candida diet, took two rounds of anti fungals, started walking daily, working outside, spending more time outside and getting more vitamin D, getting more rest, and eating healthier foods. You cannot accomplish much without “doing”. Period.
This one is pretty self explanatory. Do not eat things that make you feel like shit. Once I started realizing what was invading my body and mind I started seeing more and more patterns and familiar things popping up on my body and with my health. What works for me might not work for you. Personally my body responds well to a low sugar, low fat diet and I am working towards freeing myself of candida plus balancing my blood sugar and hormones. The better you eat the clearer your mind and body become – the easier it is to follow your intuition as it is all connected. If your body is all filled up with gunk it’s easier to feel blocked from what the universe might be trying to tell you. Finally…good gut health is KEY. Feeling shitty? Imbalanced? indigestion? Brain fog? Skin rash? Try taking a really good probiotic each morning and notice the changes.
Rest is so important. It’s important to not only get proper rest and adequate sleep over night but you must rest every day. Take a rest from negativity on the news, from negative people and situations that you no longer feel serve you. Grab the scissors and start cutting those cords. Being busy is not productive nor does it serve an important purpose in your life, healing or health.
8. Allow for Growth
Finally after following everything I have mentioned it will be hard not to feel the growth that you will continue to go through daily. You might lose or gain friends, you might figure out you are better suited in a new position or different career, you might realize what foods work best for you and what changes you need to make at home in order to have that growth that is important for all of us. Some people need to go through the rough stuff to allow for that new growth to happen. Some people need to have things fall away to experience growth. It’s so important to allow this growth to happen. We must not stifle it for growth is necessary and inevitable in this human experience.
This is what intuitive healing is to me and what I have included into my daily life over the past couple months. I hope this helps you out too!
