Journaling To Improve Your Mindset

Hi Empaths!

Are you enjoying my Empowerment Challenge? In the first three weeks I taught meditations and creative visualizations to the group. Last week I taught some journaling.

Journaling is a great practice to clear our mind and improve our mindset. In my Group, I suggested three styles of journaling: 1) picking a topic and writing about it (I offered many journal prompts in the group), 2) Julia Cameron's Morning Pages, and 3) audio journals.

Beeeee Kind To Yourself - Self-Care for Your Sinuses

Did you know that honey is a natural anti-bacterial? Yes, you can use it both as a preventative and as medicine when you get sick. But not all honey is equal. Honey that you buy at the grocery store is heavily processed and the processing takes out much of the health benefits. Sure, honey can always soothe a sore throat but if you want to reap the amazing health benefits it's best to get it from your local beekeeper.

MYTH: There is a myth that honey never spoils because it is an anti-bacterial.

FACT: Honey is best when it is fresh. It loses potency over time, just like other herbs, vitamins, and medication. If you have a bacterial infection, reach for some fresh local honey, instead of honey that's a few years old from your cupboard.

My Recent Travel Revelation

As many of you know I do not consume gluten. In 1999 I became very ill breaking out in hives whenever I ate bread, cookies, crackers etc. Symptoms progressed to upset stomach, digestive issues, brain fog, insomnia, terrible acne, fatigue, etc as I continued to eat wheat. I became VERY, VERY sick. This was a huge surprise as I had eaten wheat all of my life without any issues. So I gave up wheat (even before it was trendy).

No One Believed I Was Sick

For fifteen years, I battled with my illness. Every day was a struggle. Every minute was a struggle. I knew deep in my soul that something was seriously wrong with me. All of my life prior to my illness, I had been very healthy. I knew my body, but my doctors could not find anything wrong with me so they quickly labeled me as depressed and then after my persistence to try to find the root of my illness they labeled me a hypochondriac. I tried doctor after doctor and asked for test after test but no one believed me.

How I Healed Myself from My Chronic Illness

After 15 years struggling with a debilitating chronic illness, I was determined to be well. In 2010 I walked into a new doctor’s office at Danbury Hospital on the second floor. I sat in a muted chair in the waiting room of my infectious disease specialist’s office. I leafed through my pages of typed notes of my health history, hoping and praying that this new doctor would believe that I was ill and order further testing.
