You Can if I Can.

Here is a snapshot from the book I am writing. It is a book about life, goals, dreams and helping “self”. My mission with this book is to help people who are the ones that choose to live life differently. The ones ready for an upgrade. The ones who are thinking outside of the box. The ones who might be paralyzed in fear. The ones who need a community of cheerleaders! I am sharing the preface with you because I want to share my journey in writing my first book. I want to share what it takes to sit down everyday and try to write when you can’t. I want to share the ideas that flood my mind. I want to share my daily life and my growth journey.

So here ya go!

PREFACE

My core desire is to build a community of people who are ready and willing to take their life to the next level. That means in all areas body, mind and soul. It means developing positive routines that will thrust you forward into the amazing life God intended for you to live. My passion is to lead you to those tools and resources that will help you on your journey and that have helped me. I know this sounds like a lot and you are probably wondering where to start or even how to start. I was like you and it took me years to put healthy routines into place so that over time they would give me the results I have today. We are never done growing. We should always be learning and upgrading ourselves and our lives! Today, I can honestly say I am a confident ,healthy, beautiful woman who chooses to be a light in the world! I never would have said those things about myself before. I have done the work. It has taken years of reading, studying, learning, growing, getting rid of old thinking patterns, surrendering, accepting, loving, and so much more to get to where I am today. I am going to share how I did it and the tools that got me here!

Let me share a bit with you about my journey. My name is Amy Cherie Woods Siler, I am the founder and creative guru of JunkyGypsy Inspirations. I created my brand out of my passion to inspire people to live a life of total freedom, to love themselves and others, and to learn forever. (Live.Love.Learn)I am not saying that everybody is trapped and in bondage, not at all. What I mean is the majority of people live their lives not ever knowing that they can be totally free. So many of us live in bondage to something at sometime or another in our lives. It could be an addiction or a bad habit or something even more disguised like eating an ice cream cone late every night which is a sugar addiction. It could also, be a negative attitude or getting angry, really there are so many little things that keep us from living a life of total freedom. I also, know it is hard to make real lasting changes in life. Those who are ready and willing and devoted will succeed and I am here to be your cheerleader!

How often do you think about your health? Some people are extremely passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and then there are those who simply don’t really think about it. My journey into living a natural, healthy lifestyle began in 2007. I was overweight, depressed and very insecure. I was indulging in highly processed foods and overeating. I had no energy, no passion and no will power it seemed. Yet, I knew I was in a vicious cycle and I wanted out. I had a desire to change and I knew I had to or my life would not get any better. I started researching growing my own foods and I bought some chickens and started there. I knew growing my own produce was a start. I also, wanted my children to eat healthier. At the time they were all between the ages of 12-5 years of age. We were a newly blended family of seven and my hubby was a meat and potatoes kind of guy. He still is. I began to research what GMO’s were and that was around the time of the famous documentary Food Inc. came out. Slowly, my diet changed and I began to exercise in little increments. I did not lose a ton of weight but, you could see a difference. I became obsessed with natural organic living and doing things differently. This lead me to apply for a job at Whole Foods Market in 2010. It was January 2010 and I accepted a position in the Produce and Seafood depts full time. I could not have been happier. My education grew as I worked with local organic farmers and local vendors. My product knowledge increased as well as, my passion and obsession for living a different way. Over the next five years I completely transformed my diet and my body. I under went surgery in 2012 for a hysterectomy at age 35 due severe problems. I blamed the problems on “big pharma”. Side effects from medications and from my tubal ten years prior. I also suffered anorexia in my late twenties and I had a severe drug addiction to painkillers.  I could honestly write a book about being an addict but, I will save that for another time. The reason I am sharing this with you is so I can be completely transparent and real. Addiction is hard and even harder to overcome but, it can be done. I do not shift all of the blame on big pharma but, I do blame them some. If pain killers had not be carelessly over prescribed in the late 80’s and through the 90’s we would be a very different nation right now. Just look at the heroin epidemic. Thankfully, God protected me from ever trying heroin. He knew I would be dead right now had I tried that. Today, my passion for a natural healthy abundant life has led me to be an entrepreneur. This is why I created JunkyGypsy Inspirations. Part of living a high vibe life is gratitude. Being in a state of constant gratitude will always keep you humble and will help you to stay focused.
Be grateful daily for the life you have and where you are. It is important to embrace the present in order to have freedom to change the future. I want to evolve into what God wants me to be–what His original vision was for me. Granted I made mistakes along the way but, He has worked it all out for the good.
I am at a point in my life where peace is my priority and negativity can not exist. That involves learning to control emotions. Another goal of mine is to support you in getting a grip on those pesky emotions that try to steal our joy. Will they ever go away? No. Of course not. But, learning how to control them makes all the difference. My one core desire is for this TRIBE to love, respect, and accept each other where we are at in our health journey together knowing we are all growing and changing.

How do we live a High Vibe Life Successfully?

We have to develop a positive mental attitude and treat everyone as if they were the most important person in the world. We have to develop a capacity to understand people. We must have self-discipline and learn to manage our own personal habits. We must exude peace and have hope and ambition for the future. Get excited about our goals and dreams and determine in our minds that we will succeed no matter what. Another area we must master is self-care. You must always make time for yourself. You can not serve and bless others if your cup is empty. Lastly, GO EXTREME! Figure out what matters most and focus on that thing.

I am now having done these things myself, a light in the world. I serve people by being the example and living in the freedom that God meant for us all to live in. The Lord wants me serve Him and others with my unique gifts and His purpose for my life which is also, the things inside of me that He gives me a deep creative passion for. He put that seed in me long ago and now it is time for it to grow, bloom and share with others. I wanted to experience abundance and freedom in my life, so I had to heal and serve then lead in my own home first before I could share with others what I have learned. Be obsessed with your own freedom and health! Be a person of powerful habits! Always put love first. If we place true authentic love before anything else in our lives then and only then can we succeed. As we grow and change we are constantly up grading or up leveling our lives. It is important to surround yourself with people who are going to support your journey. Maintain focus and clarity on your dreams and goals. You must be the leader of yourself. I will share the tools that will help motivate and lead you to live a beautiful amplified life! We will Live, Love, and Learn together and every single day you are gonna get crazy inspired! I am creating a culture of transparency, love, and freedom in this TRIBE! I hope that everyone wants to live in a beautiful state. Throughout this book you will discover key principles, tools you need and habits to put into place to ensure your growth and success in any and every area of your life! Right now, embrace your true authentic self right where you are. You are beautiful, brilliant and ready to upgrade!

 

Have a Beautiful Day!

Love,

JunkyGypsy

Divinity Rising!

th-1

In the midnight of my soul there is a light of the divine. A peaceful resolution to those weak moments of the flesh. A pull  toward the broken, we are all broken. Lost but redeemed by a Savior from a God who loves us. We experience the ultimate high of emotional surrender. Freedom expressed with the release of sin and hopelessness. A sanctified extistence of the divine. Clarity begets fog and wisdom releases foolishness. From where we originated from the womb blameless brought into the world onlif we can grasp the full context of the sacrifice of the one who bore it all. All of our reality, our darkness, our pain, our sin. He took it all in each scar, each open wound, each drop of blood that blessed the ground forever. We should only ever be focused on that divine moment that freed us from sin and death. We should only be interested in the submission of our lives and surrender to the service of God. To be so blessed to be redeemed and released from the death that awaited us and the pull of and enemy that roams to and fro looking to devour us and blind us with our own godliness. That he should have us focused on our rule and our life and our wants. When the road that leads to life is but narrow and small not broad where the masses walk to embrace each other in their fleshy passions and open rebellion. It is easy to become lost in what is directly in front of you. The reality that presents itself to us us minute after minute day after day. Whom are we to indulge? Flesh or Spirit. A daily fight or a daily surrender? I choose to submit to the Spirit. To the one who bled and died, who bore my sin long before I knew I would encompass the darkness after it was already in me when I came into the world. I am eternally thankful to my God who shed His magnificent light into the darkness of my life and called me by name and redeemed me.th-5

I beseech you to look into the window of your soul and act on the Spirit that calls us to submission for our eternal good. Welcoming obedience and surrender. Release the need to be politically correct, break free from the bondages that whisper you need, you must, you will, you want! Light will always break through the dark and the battle has been won. Victory is claimed and the end is so very near. Stay focused. Stay true. Stay in line with the Word the Truth. Welcome to the to brotherhood of Christ. Welcome to the sisterhood of Christ. Let each body part of the family express its wholeness in the individual gifts that the Father has freely given to further the work of His kingdom to come. The future of the dance of Angels and the Freedom that the Spirit pours unto the body. If we can all embrace what is, what was originally intended. Use those gifts now is the time the for the body to reflect the purpose of bringing the lost into the Kingdom as a whole of the earth the Lord will always reveal His plan and purpose at His appointed time.

Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of hosts of the Lord:

In all the squares there shall be wailing, and in all the streets they shall say, “Alas! Alas!’

They shall call the farmers to the mourning and to wailing those who are skilled in lamentation, and in all vineyards there shall be wailing, for I will pass through your midst,” says the Lord.

Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! Why would you have the day of the Lord? It is darkness, and not light, as if a man fled from a lion and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned his hand against the wall, and a serpent bit him. Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light and gloom with no brightness in it? “I hate, I depise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even tough you offer your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept the; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. Take away from me the noise of your songs; to the melody of your harps I will not listen. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. did you bring me sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wildreness, O house of Israel? You shall take up Sikkuth your king, and Kiyyun your star-god–your images that you made for yourselves, and I will send you send you into exile beyond Damascus, says the Lord, whose name is the God of hosts.

“Woe to those who lie on beds of ivory and stretch themselves out on their couches, and eat lambs from the flock and calves from the midst of the stall, who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp and like David invent for themselves instruments of music, who drink wine in bowls and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph! Therefore they shall now be the first of those who go into exile, and the revelry of those who stretch themselves out shall pass away..”

For behold, the Lord commands, and the great house shall be struck down into fragments, and the little house into bits. Do horses run on rocks? Does one plow there with oxen? But you have turned justice into poison and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood– you who rejoice in Lo-debar (nothing), who say, ” Have we not by our own strengh captured Karnaim for ourselves?”

” For behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel,” declares the Lord, the God of hosts; and they shall oppress you from Lebo-hamath to the Brook of the Arabah.”

The eclipse the 21st day of the 8th month in the year of two thousand seventeen.

Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from the surface of the ground, except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,” declares the Lord.

God restores after disciplinary action has been taken and although severely painful as it may be especially to the innocent, His intentions are always in favor of the good. God stands true to His promises.

” In that day I will raise up the booth of David that is fallen and repair its breaches, and raise up its ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old, that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations who are called by my name, declares the Lord who does this. “Behold, the days are coming, ” declares the Lord, ” when the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; the mountains shall drip sweet wine and all the hills shall flow with it. I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them.

I wrote this over a week ago. I felt the Lord was speaking to me. I do not have all the answers and honestly I was not going to publish this until I read it this morning. Maybe it will bless someone.

My  Prayer

I pray for the Lord, to bless his children. To uphold us in His right hand. Forgive us our sins. Let us always have a reverent fear of the Lord to keep in proper perspective our lives. You ARE GOD!

You know the plans You have for each one of us, plans to prosper us to give us a hope and a future! Let us humble ourselves before you Lord and thank you for Jesus. Let our focus and intent on this earth be selfless and surrenderd! Let us be a light in the dark for those who are lost. That Your Kingdom Will Come and Your Will Be Done on earth as it is in Heaven!

In Jesus Name- AMEN!

Have a blessed day!

Expanding & Stretching

I have been so emotional the past few days, I’m not really sure what’s going on. I think maybe I am being stretched for growth? Not sure. Anyway, I need to share some “real” stuff that is on my heart. Sometimes in the blogging, social media infested world we live in we try to portray our lives as pretty and maybe not so perfect but, awesome. I am the same way, I don’t want any negative feed on my Instagram or Facebook. It is nice to see some honest, raw, real life post every once in a while. So, my social media accounts tend to be very positive and uplifting. I try to motivate and encourage others online. Then , real life is not so rosey. That is what I am sharing today.

I may be putting too much pressure on myself to change old behaviors and develop the new ones I want so badly. Example– I want to stop saying I’m sorry all the time. I want to have confidence in who I am as a person (which I do) but, I want it to radiate. My highest priority with myself is pursuing freedom. In every area I desire total FREEDOM. Always show grace and be non judgemental attitude. I began to ask myself this one question daily. “Is this moving me toward freedom, or daily struggle? This one question changed my entire outlook on life believe it or not. When I thought about the choices I have in a day it really caused me to stop reflect. As we draw closer and closer to fall I am feeling a since of urgency on the goals I wanted to crush this year. I have met a few of them. I had and still have a mission to be a light and shine so brightly that everyone whom I encounter in a single day takes notice. I also, have a desire to leave everyone feeling more loved and more valuable when they leave me. I think I have not mastered the BIG goals I wanted to accomplish this year. Finances, my doTERRA Tribe growing, hitting Silver than Gold then Diamond! Writing my book, monetizing my blog, and having a freaking amazing online business! I know and I have determined today that I will NOT give up! I have no choice right now other than to succeed. You see the reality is I am at rock bottom right now.

Shop now-www.reallygreatsite.comThere is no where for me to go but UP! I want to express to you that I am NOT sharing this out of pity or depression. I am sharing because I live my life “AS IF” meaning I live like I have so when I do have I know how to embrace it with love, passion, grace, humility, and purpose. Here goes the confession; I live in an RV built-in 1990. It could be nice but, the roof is bad so it rains in my “house”. The walls are like sponges and everything is moldy and wet. Even with all of my effort to keep it dry and clean. I currently am living in a stranger’s yard, where my RV sank deep into the mud and is now stuck so I can not leave to dump the shit tank. Anyone who has ever RVed knows what I mean. The positives, I have running water, not hot. I have wi-fi, power and a small dorm fridge that barely works but, it works. I have been seeking employment for about a month now. I made a bad choice and left my stable weekly paycheck at a beautiful campground because I allowed the lies and rumors others were throwing around to bug me. Instead of standing my ground. Lesson learned! I get up everyday with hope that today is the day! My kiddos can not live with me because I can not afford a home. I don’t have a car, that dies a few weeks ago. I was able to afford my doTERRA LRP for a while and loved my vitamins and supplements because they made me feel better. I run everyday because it is my only time of day I can try to forget what my current life situation looks like. My checking account is overdrawn 172.00. My savings account is empty. I take Benadryl to sleep. Every single day I work on my business. Day in and day out. I write, I share, I pray, I evolve, I muster up feelings of joy to share cute pics on Instagram. I blog about how to fulfill your dreams and goals all the while feeling like a fraud. I escape to Pinterest so I can feel like I am traveling the world as a gypsy and exploring God’s wonderous creations. There you have it. Now, you understand I really can not go anywhere but UP! I will continue to learn, write, plan, share, serve a community I am building online. It’s all about transparency. Truth. Raw life.

The Word of the Lord says this:

For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice and shall see the plumbline in the land Zerubbabel.”

Zechariah 4:10

I have a dream-a dream of a happy home in the mountains, perfect tranquility, serving women I love, leading encouraging, supporting,building community.

A TRIBE, A Life, An Example.

I wear truth, integrity, love, grace, compassion, wisdom,  trust, confidence, beauty, and transparency. I am, bold and courageous!~ I teach my kids my kids to go after their dreams and goals and never ever give up!

Love,

JunkyGypsy

Hello Beautiful!

Last week I really kicked butt in my biz! I worked diligently for hours and hours on end creating content, updating social media etc. It was great. This week  am moving at a slower pace. I experienced a minor set back over the weekend that kinda paralyzed me and caused me question myself. Sunday I found myself really needing to take a long hard look at where I wanted go. I needed some time to just sit and be quiet. Which is really hard for me because one of my weaknesses is patience. After the reflection I committed to myself. I said, “Amy, you are going to make this happen. You are walking your brand around all day, everyday. You are the only one who will fight for your purpose and passion.” I took some notes that really have not sunk in yet. I did write everything down that just began to pour out of me. I declared–I can and I will. I will do it scared. I will keep moving and investing. I am sowing seeds and when they grow and blossom, oh my what a pretty picture it will be. What I am struggling with is what to do with all of the information that flooded my mid and landed on my journal pages. There are many great things that I jotted down. I will share with you guys in little bits as I grow to understand what each means.

This week I felt lead to run a promo–7 Days of Inspir-ACTION!

I am praying for some answers from the Lord, about some personal matters. He has not answered yet. I am feeling led to embrace a more assertive me. To stand up for what I believe and what I want to shower on others! All of this involves a new morning routine, new boundaries, and new confidence. I am super excited to be molded and growing! Growth is exciting and hard all at the same time. I welcome it for me I never want to stop growing! I am a student of myself for life!

Respons-ABLE/ Inspir-ACTION

Respons-ABLE  Inspir-ACTION Dis-EASE

You are fully able to take real action on your dreams and goals ,your mind and body are at ease!

 

I created this to give myself some guidelines going forth in my life and business. These are all areas that I want to change so that I can impact others lives in a positive way. I began initially writing these for myself but, then I thought others would like the information too! In each area on a daily basis I am asking myself these questions. It might be a lot for you so just take a few if you are overwhelmed. By asking yourself these questions in these areas of your life and writing out your answers you are causing a shift in your mind to happen. This will help you to build positive habits, reflect on any areas that need work and it makes you aware of your thinking before you think and your actions before you act. In case you don’t understand the title of this post I intentionally wrote it out so you could see how words have power. We are all able to take action daily in our lives doing whatever we feel is important be it a dream or goal or just simply going to the grocery store and getting the kids to take a nap. It is all relative to life. Most everyone I know wants to have a life that is important. They want to fulfill their dreams and goals. I have made it my mission in life to help women do just that through inspirACTION! I have a passion for women to be healthy and not have disease but to be at EASE in their mind and body! My prayer is that you will take advantage of these questions and really begin to apply it them to your life right now!

*My goal next year is to start a: Say Yes Fund– $3000.00 per year Biz prospects, missions, charities this is after Tithe.

My Prayer:

Lord, I surrender my life and business to You. I pray Lord, for inspiration and ideas that will generate an income and also help me to bless others. I pray that You would take me out of my comfort zone daily and help me to grow intentionally in each area listed below. Help me Lord, to maintain focus and clarity on my dreams and goals. If my dreams and goals are not what You have lined up for me then I pray You would close the door so that I do not waste time chasing meaningless endeavors. Lord, I pray that you would anoint my pen so I can provide valuable content to my followers and spread Your love. I am grateful for every person reading and praying this right now and I ask You to bless their life and provide whatever needs they have. As, their sista in Christ, let us come together as a community/Tribe of daughters of Zion and embrace each other in love and truth. As You Father, have laid on my heart to build this business as a safe place for us all to grow and mentor one another. Help me to reflect Your love in my speech, attitude and actions daily to my Tribe.  I humbly submit my wants and my desires for this business to You and I pray for You to send the people to me who need inspiration and help taking action -people who are ready to invest in their health and wellness journey. Father, I surrender all I have been taught up until this very moment, I let go of what I thought were the genuine guidelines of living a healthy life. And what I thought was the way to lead people to better health. Help me to keep my mind clear and my heart pure & strengthen my convictions and help me to apply all that You teach me into all areas of my life, my family, health, finances, business, serving others, mind, body and spirit. So that my cup will overflow! Thank You Lord!

In Jesus Name- AMEN!

 

Integrity-Consistently ask myself am I speaking with integrity? Am I acting with integrity in mind? Are my words reflecting integrity? Are my decisions being made with integrity?Do I ask others opinions when faced with a tough decision so that I can gain wisdom in all areas?

Influence– Am I leaving the people whom I meet feeling loved, valued, important, and heard? Do I dress for success daily? Am I utilizing social media in a positive way that leaves people with feelings of peace and joy? Do I listen to others well? To I speak with wisdom? Do I seek advice from people I admire or look up to?

Growth– Am I doing at least one thing everyday that scares me. Am I seeking out ways to grow spiritually. Am I allowing God to mold me and change me as I grow as a Christian? Who am I surrounded by that motivates me to be a better person? Who are the five people I surround myself with currently on a daily basis? Am I setting aside time and money to invest in my growth?

Spirit– Do I seek the leading of the Holy Spirit before I start my day? Am I giving God priority in my daily life? Do I pray for others regularly? Am I silent before the Lord so I can hear Him? Do I confess my sins and repent daily? Do I forgive myself and others and ask God to wash me clean and start over ready and willing? Do I intentionally seek the Lords wisdom in all areas of my life? Am I committed to the Word and applying it to my day to day activities? Am I humble? Do I serve and love others well? In whatever I am doing to I put forth the very best I have? Do I have a correct perception of the Fear of the Lord?

Financial-Am I a good steward of all God has given me right now? Am I serious about paying my debts? Do I exhibit integrity when making a large purchase? Do I tithe my first 10%? Do I give above God’s 10%? Is my checking account balanced and in order? Is my savings account growing? Am I committed to saving for the future? Am I serious about living in financial freedom? Is my highest priority to be FREE? Do I bless others often with financial gifts? Do I look into ways I can invest into other businesses and sow good seed?

Health– Am I committed to my body being the temple of the Holy Spirit? Do I eat whole foods daily? Do I take vitamins and supplements to help maintain my health? Do I regulary exercise? Am I setting an example to others with my body? Do I always look for the healthy options when faced with temptation? Is my household healthy? Do I cook “real” meals daily? Is my hygiene good? Am I a good steward of the body that God gave me? Do I look for ways to teach others how they can be healthy? Do I share essential oils with everyone I meet? Am I committed to invest in others lives my knowledge of how they can live a healthy life? Am I willing to give God my body as a living sacrifice?

Mind– Do I wake up positive and ready to embrace the day? Is my mind healthy and under my control? Do I practice setting my mind on things above and not below? Do I take every thought captive unto God? Do I intentionally seek to keep my mind pure and clear of distractions? Do I think about the way I talk to myself? Am I paying attention to my thought patterns? Am I putting your Word Lord in my heart and mind so that I can meditate on it day and night?

Living the Routine

WILD

I promised you guys I was going to share my morning rituals/routines that have shaped me into the woman I am today. I have always had some sort of routine in the morning. I think unconsciously we all have an implanted agenda when we wake up I mean it’s just there. However, when you are not intentional about your mornings your whole day falls apart. I remember years ago when I would wake up, cut the coffee pot on and fill my cup with more sugar than coffee. When the kids were young I would just fall into a go with flow mentality. What would happen on a regular basis was my mood swings. I would think everything was happening to me. I had no control. So, if one of the kids spilled their milk on the floor I would yell and scream. Allow my reaction to control me. The poor children were frightened but, then they would end up in the worst mood ever because of how I reacted. This vicious cycle continued for a while. This is why I want to share with you routines and habits that have formed who I am today. While a lot can be blamed on emotions as I shared the other day. Rituals and routines can have an effect on our minds and thus cause our emotions to change. i.e. you wake up from a bad dream and you immediately are angry from this dream. You get up start your coffee or get water, still all while you feel a sense of frustration. Instead of taking some time to reflect and adjust your mood, you realize your late for work and rush to get dressed and head out the door. You get to work and your boss is mad because you did not meet a deadline, the school calls and your kid is sick again, you forgot to eat breakfast so your stomach hurts and you can’t take lunch because of the deadline. You chug it all up to having a bad day. All day you are in RE-ACTION mode instead of CRE-ATION mode. Now, if you take the same scenario and only change a few things, waking up breathing and intentionally saying, “thank you for this beautiful day. I am letting go whatever that dream was about.”

Then, go start your coffee, oil pull teeth, brush teeth, make your bed and eat breakfast with the kids. Whether you are late or not. The fact is if you set some routines in place you won’t be waking up late to begin with. You are also setting the tone in your home and life. If you can have a WIN in the morning that means you have WON the day! Bad moods don’t happen they are a choice. I always look to people who inspire me and who are successful in their lives and this helps me to create routines that work.

Amy’s  Routine’s & Rituals

Wake up @ 7am–Start the coffee pot

Start Diffuser with a Morning Blend–usually Wild Orange, Peppermint

Morning Magic Blend

10-20 min Oil Pulling with a drop of Melaleuca (tea tree oil)

Brush teeth with On Guard toothpaste

Wash face with a mixture of Frankincense, Melaleuca, Lavender, and apply doTERRA’s Immortelle (anti-aging blend) under my eyes and on my forehead.

Drink 8 to 12 oz. H2O with a few drops of doTERRA’s Slim & Sassy (doTERRA’s metabolic blend)

Take 1  TerraZyme Supplement (good for digestion and stomach) and 1 Mito2Max (which is freaking awesome for energy)

Pray/ Journal/ Worship–this varies on how many devotionals I am working through-currently I am doing 2. 100 Days of Vocabulary/Scripture & 31 Days for the Dreamer & the Doer-this is also, when I write my affirmations out, a goal I am working on, and word of the day.

Worship Music Playlist on Spotify (this is a new habit, I don’t listen to enough Praise & Worship music)

Send Kids Love notes- I like to message each of the every day and it is #2 on my priority list as I am working on building new relationships with each of them right now)

Review calendar Top 3 Priorities for the day–I am not currently working outside of the home so my Top 3 priorities tend to be entrepreneurial–write blog post, update social media, contact 2 prospects etc.

30 min of Personal Development–this usually happens when I go for a run. That way I can utilize my time well

Run/ Exercise 30 to 1 hour–I am doing Couch to 5K again because I like programs that tell me what to do. I also, do sit ups, squats, leg lifts and lift weights on various days

Mantra: I Can, I Will– Every person I encounter today I leave feeling inspired and valued. I say these to myself all day long.

Take LLV/Terrazyme–this is usually right around 12:30-1pm

Write/ Work on Projects–creating content for blog, social media, research is happening-working on my book–etc. 

Oils Diffusing-all day I diffuse different blends and I select oils that I feel drawn too.

Creative afternoons/ Meeting people–my artistic activities happen during this time or if I have errands to run.

Dinner/ Whole Foods, Healthy foods-I included this because for a while I was really eating a lot of unhealthy foods and I needed to focus on my health and wellness again.

Time with Hubby-date night, watch movie, talk

Read for 30 minutes/ take Serenity gel cap-I do not currently read before I go to sleep because hubby always has the TV on–this is an area I want to change so I included it on my list because it is a priority for me!

With a grateful heart and silent prayers fall asleep and I am ready to do it all again tomorrow!!!

I know this is a lot. It is important for me to see this list daily because it tells me if my priorities are in order or if something is off. My goals for this year are to increase family time, be intentionally present for our children–that may sound weird but its a goal of mine. Trust where the Lord is leading and grow to be the best version of Amy possible! I have a huge burden on my heart to be an example to others, to live daily with integrity, and to be a woman after God’s own heart. I am far from perfect but as long as my eyes are focused on these things then I can catch any behavior that does not line up with my life purpose and mission. This is how I currently show up for myself in my life daily what do you do? This list is ever-changing because we should always be growing and evolving. There are different seasons in life too which will cause it to change.

Here are some examples from highly successful people who are winning in their life and biz!

Tim Ferriss author of the 4 Hour Work Week!

Ange Peters doTERRA Presidential Diamond and a freaking rockstar role model!

Farmer’s Daughter

 

 

Daughter

Hello Beautiful,

I grew up in the country. I had a childhood filled with memories of running through endless corn fields, playing in the dirt, riding my bike on long dirt roads till the sun went down, fishing with my brother every afternoon, playing and dancing under the irrigation system (which is basically like the world’s largest lawn sprinkler), and quiet nights with a sky full of stars and making so many wishes I can not remember them all. It was beautiful. I loved every minute of my childhood. I grew up surrounded by family who loved me, brother and sisters who always joined me in the mud puddles and getting into whatever mischief we could. Summers were spent on the farm, which meant you basically did not leave the 300 acres of where my house was until September when school started again. But, like many of you my adolescent years were spent in open rebellion. Sneaking out, lying, trying to be anywhere but, home. You get the idea. Now I would give anything to be on that farm with my children giving them the kind of childhood I had. It was not meant to be as they are all adults now except for my baby who is 16.

When I was that little girl, God very clearly spoke to me. He said, “I love you.” I bet you were thinking I was going to say something hugely enlightening right? No. He kept it simple for a dreamy little girl whose imagination would lose control. It was in that moment though I realized God was real. That He actually cared about me. When I spent countless nights staring out my bedroom window missing my mom and crying He would meet me. God who is bigger than any of us could ever think or imagine, would comfort my soul and bless me with His presence.

Fast forward to the 41-year-old woman I am today and guess what? That same God who comforted me all those years ago met me again this morning. He said, “Amy, this is where I want you.” Tears rolled down my face as I felt the Holy Spirit give me a peace I have been seeking for the past few weeks. You see, I have been in a dry spell and during this time my hubby and I have made some changes. Changes I thought the Lord wanted us to make. It has been a struggle to remain positive and focused. To have faith that God says we are to have. The only thing I knew during this time was that no matter what is going on in my physical world, I had to continue to seek Him every single day. He had to be number one in my life and in my day. First thing every morning I get up get my Bible out open it to whatever, read and journal. Then, I read a devotional (currently I am working through for the 6th time, 31 Days for the Dreamer and the Doer) write out all the scripture, I pray for a bit and then I pray during my run. That is all I knew I should be doing. Yesterday, I had a sense that God was smiling at me. Almost, like He was proud of my determination to seek Him. I know He is but it was and extra special feeling-I can’t really explain it. When today I heard Him say that, my heart was happy. Peace was my friend. I know that the God of the universe is capable of handling any and all problems we have. Sometimes with our limited minds we forget just how BIG HE is! Without Faith it is impossible to please God. I pray for my faith to increase daily as I pray for God to deliver manna to us. Literally. I used to have a problem with understanding faith and when faith becomes foolishness. I have been asking God that question for 20 years and finally He answered me. Faith is always foolish in the world’s eyes. Because faith is believing what is not seen. If something you have faith about does not happen it does not mean it was foolish it just means God said NO. I know there are different levels of faith. Baby Christians take faith like it is a debit card with and unlimited amount of money and spend it like crazy. Then, when it gets declined they get mad and instead of calling the bank they cut the card up and throw it away. They may never try to have faith in anything again or it takes some time. Then there is the faith that you believe for something but you are controlling all aspects of that thing happening, example if you were praying for another job with a higher pay rate and you get the job. Yes, it took faith to believe but you were also the only person interviewed for the position. Do you understand what I am saying? Then, there is faith like God says, Say to this mountain be moved and cast into the sea and it will be done. You believe without really thinking about it. Your faith is solid because you believe in God and so that mountain is moved and thrown into the sea. I understand now the line between faith and foolishness. It will always be foolish to the world. Sometimes, God just says NO and other times He tests us to see if we can handle more. Which brings me back to my point. No matter where you are in life right now. No matter what is going on in your physical world. If you are in the valley or on the mountain top. God loves YOU, He sees YOU, He hears YOU, He is right beside YOU! I urge you today to look around at what you can be grateful for at this very moment and thank Him who provides. With a grateful heart you can submit your requests to God and it will be done. If you want to join in on a 31 day Bible Devotional Group going on this month using the devotional I said I was doing let me know and you can be added. If you have never read 31 Days of prayer for the Dreamer and the Doer it is the best devotional I have ever read for people, who are artist, dreamers, writers, business owners, daughters, mothers and so on. I urge you to join there are live videos every morning on Facebook and you do not need to own the book to do it because the woman who is leading this will take pics and post them for you.

Essentially Emotional

cropped-junkygypsy-1.png

Hello Lovelies,

I want to talk about emotions today. Those rocky ups and downs. The freakish panic attacks that sneak up on us. The crazy outburst of laughter when we are excited. The moments when tears well up in our eyes because we just experienced a happiness we thought we could never know, the loss of a loved one and the sadness that ensues, the fear and joy of doing something new. You get the idea. EMOTIONS!!!

These feelings are your state of mind in response to the environment around you. This includes people, where you are, what you are doing. Did you know that your emotions have a direct affect on a particular part of your body? And you can experience the emotions in that body part. Example: Love, Fear and being misunderstood effects the kidney. It actually explains why people who have feelings of abandonment may have stomach pains. Because that emotion is attached to the stomach. God clearly tells us in His word that forgiveness is healing. Which is another emotion. Understanding that you can release emotions and emotional patterns with essential oils is vital to your health and wellness. I am not saying that all emotions need to be released but, sickness is attached to emotions. The Bible gives us instructions on how to heal.

“Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.” (James 5:14)

I have listed essential oils below that support your emotions. There is so much information out there on emotions and essential oils it can feel very overwhelming. I suggest first and foremost to go to your Bible, Pray and ask God to lead you and heal you. Next, I recommend get the book:

Emotions & Essential Oils.  Now fully doTERRA compliant! Essential oils are widely used for their physical health benefits, but few have understood the scope of their healing capabilities. In Emotions & Essential Oils, essential oils are introduced as powerful emotional healers. This groundbreaking book bridges the gap between the physical and emotional aspects of essential oils and creates a user-friendly guide for taking charge of your emotional health. Each oil is written about with profound insight and understanding of its innate properties and gifts, and the result is as poetic as it is practical.

I find if I am having an especially taxing day full of emotions I will have a rollerball of my fav oils and carry it with me all day! I also, highly suggest purchasing doTERRA’s  ClaryCalm Blend--I am in love with this blend and the past few weeks for me have been stressful so having this blend on hand has made all the difference.

The following oils support emotional healing!

Frankincense.  The Oil  of Truth.

Emotions addressed: abandonment, spiritually disconnected, distant from father, unprotected, spiritual darkness.

Bergamot.  The Oil of Self-Acceptance.

Emotions addressed:  despair, low self-esteem, self-judgement, unlovable and hopeless.

Cypress.  The Oil of Motion & Flow.

Emotions addressed:  controlling, fear, perfectionism, rigidity, stuck, tense.

Wild Orange.  The Oil of Abundance.

Emotions addressed:  Scarcity, over-serious, rigid, dull, workaholism, low energy, discouraged, hoarding and envy.

God gave us these beautiful gifts not just so they could make our home smell nice, they have healing properties. Each oil can do many things. We will always have emotions and it is a blessing to have the tools we need to support our bodies daily so we can each live a healthy beautiful life in the abundance that God wants us to live in!
