The Right Road of Exploration

 

 

JunkyGypsy (4)Hey Tribe!

My soul is in a bitter-sweet place this morning. I find myself at the crossroads of life. This way or that. You may have seen similar post on this topic in the past and it is because I have drifted in and out and back and forth on this matter. Which road do I choose? Which path is correct? I used to be terrified and believe that God was going to crush me if I did what I wanted. My dream was somewhere and I had to be brave enough to find it. Then one day God said, “Walk in your complete truth.” And so I did, but nothing changed. My inner light has slowly faded day after day and week after week. Here I am. Fear is a dream thief. It sits there staring us in the face almost taunting us with whispers, ” You can’t do that. You won’t do that. You are too weak. There is too much what ifs. Stop being silly. That is not reality.” This goes on and on. On the other hand this past month I have dared myself do one thing a week that terrifies me so I can conquer this devil of fear. I have successfully won the small battles.

Live your DreamLove I

My dream is this, to be a writer/blogger and #1 Best Selling Author on Amazon, to be a runner and complete 2 10K’s this year, to grow my brand JunkyGypsy Inspirations: in which I take the lead for women and conquer my fears and create my dream life and by being the example I can help them be all they are meant to be! To grow my doTERRA business and build a tribe of sista’s who believe in natural healing and have a passionate desire for their bodies to operate at peak performance. I want to speak to a crowd of 500 women and tell my story with my children present so they can see anything is possible. Pay off my debts and build savings so I can give freely, travel freely and live freely. To bless my children with their basic needs while spending quality time together on vacations. That is it. I comprehensive list of my goals and dreams I am determined to succeed at these are all non negotiable.

What I did not include is the environment in which all these things take place. I will have a cute house in the mountains with a view off my back deck. I will drive a nice car either a suburban or a Prius, ” I know its one extreme to the other.” But, hey its my dream. To go out to restaurants for dinner in the city. To walk everywhere. Join a gym downtown. Make relationships with the most beautiful like-minded people. To serve others daily. To walk in love and truth. To have integrity and wisdom. To wake up excited about my life and pinch myself because I think I am dreaming. All of this can not happen until I put away the old. It is like when you decide to change how you talk to yourself. When you release all of those negative thoughts and words and replace them with positive affirmations. After a while you believe the affirmations and all of the negativity is gone.

I know I am more confident, more outgoing, more courageous, today than I was two years ago. I know it is because of my thinking. The transformation is real. Today I am at the crossroads once again. This time it feels like the last time this opportunity may cross my path. I know the way. I know what to do. As humans we feel the need to ask others if this is right or wrong as if they know what we are going through or what is in our head. Don’t get me wrong sometimes when you confide in another it is wise to listen but, ultimately it is your life and your choice. It is like when I went for my run yesterday, I thought no one else is going to run for me or get me in shape. No one. This is my discipline. I have given credit to others in my life when really it was me doing the work. This might sound a little crazy but, I would give credit for actions I took in my life to someone else just because they were with me. Make sense? After reflecting on this yesterday I realized that is my power. I am capable of anything. I never really instilled this one concept into my children’s lives. Which is why I am determined to model it for them. The way I go from here is scary, it is big, it is painful. I know what is on the other side of fear is a life I only ever dreamed of before and it will be my reality! Promise you that!

 

Lots of Love,

Essentially Magical Life

JunkyGypsy Inspirations (11)

Hello Lovelies!

I have missed writing here on my little blog! It has been far too long. Literally, I find that my schedule is quickly filling up and I have to figure out what works for me. I am writing articles for a couple of magazines, building my new website, prepping for weekly Facebook live Sista Jam Sessions, where we come together in love and truth and chat about our dreams and goals! Doesn’t that sound simply divine? I am super excited about the new launch. I also, starting writing a new book. It is not entirely new, I am rewriting the book I recently published on Amazon and adding lots of value and much better content to the mix. I have found my entrepreneurial spirit, the confidence to embrace my own uniqueness. I am determined to show up big in my life right where I am today. Have you been in a place of new growth and unlimited potential in your personal life and biz? There is this atmosphere of abundance right now. God I believe is opening doors and sending opportunities that maybe once were not options. He is lifting the veil so He can be glorified I our daily life. When we give Him the glory and the honor He is showing up BIG for us! I feel it. If you are on the cupst of growth or something you have been trying to do for a long time just know that He is sending the right opportunities and the right doors will open at the right time. We are in a beautiful space of love and peace. Embrace sista’s with all of your beauty. The world needs you!

Walking the Line

JunkyGypsy Inspirations

 

You know the Johnny Cash song, “I Walk the Line”?

Walk the Line

 

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine, I keep my eyes wide open all time…are you singing yet? In today’s world there is a fight a going on. It is a spiritual battle to steal our hearts. To distort every moral that is right. This requires us to stay alert at all times..”walk the line“. I know Johnny Cash was not singing about what I am about to preach. It just makes sense to me. The past few weeks have been exhausting to say the least. In keeping check with myself I have been alert and keeping a close watch on my heart. In good ol Amy style! Which means I am in between houses right now. If you have been following this blog for a while then I am sure you have been witness to many, many blog posts about losing this home that or better yet, the infamous post, “help me Lord, I am homeless!” cries. This time around there is no real panic, just a simple, “oh well, I made the decision. It will work out somehow.” That does not mean I haven’t been moody or slightly fearful. I would be lying if I said it didn’t bother me or cause me fear. During this period before we arrived where we are today, I seriously prayed and asked God to go before us. I stepped out on the water in faith. God always takes care of his children. I know that but, I do have times when it is hard to stay positive. God said we are far more valuable than the bird’s of the air. Which brings me back to this; God specifically said for me to keep a close watch on this heart of mine and stay alert. I haven’t experienced  any voices from heaven telling me to go this way or that. What I can tell you is this is a delicate time for my hubby and I. I believe that if either one of us is not careful to guard our hearts the enemy will attempt to invade and steal our joy, peace, and the blessings to come. Whether you realize it or not, when the enemy comes he comes wrapped not in darkness or evil but in our deepest dreams and greatest desires especially, when we are at a place in life where God may be testing us or molding us into better people. When humans are in desperate situations we tend to “react” to life. We allow life to happen to us and not for us. Which is why guarding our hearts and minds is top priority. We are responsible for our choices and when ownership is claimed and faith is activated God will cause miracles for us on our behalf. Let’s not forget the other side of this is direct obedience. That requires action and action requires making choices with integrity. When we are submissive to the Lord’s plan He will cause the Red Sea to part. Obedience requires walking the line and not side stepping to make things happen in our time frame the way we expect it too. Are you with me on this? I have mentioned a few words that may have hurt or offended you. Nevertheless it is the truth! Words like obedience, submit, and wait are not what we really want to hear when our ship is sinking faster than the Titanic. I know first hand that waiting sucks. How about this word, discipline. How does that word make you feel? You probably think about when you were a kid and you got in trouble for doing something stupid and you get spanked with a belt. I don’t know about you but, that was a thing in my household growing up. Today they call it child abuse (which is really stupid and a whole other blog post). It takes personal discipline when following the Lord. You have to give up fleshly desires. It is the only way to get into the Promised Land. This is where we are today. Waiting to enter the Promised Land. God revealed to me about a month ago that He was about to take us into the Promised Land, He said, “ I will increase your land and expand your tent.” He also, reminded me that to whom much is given much is required. So, I am here I am am waiting and leaning on Him. Trusting that He knows what is better for us than we know for ourselves.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.

 

Are you guarding your heart daily. Are you in a season of walking the line with the Lord? If so I would love for you share your story in the comments below!

 

Peace & Love,

Open Eyes, New Roads

This is the second time I am typing this message. Just an FYI—it is a message that God wants me to get out and thus the first time I wrote it I accidentally hit a button while typing and it deleted. That being said I know I must attempt to say it again.

This message is for us! The Christians of the world. I have been asking the Lord where He wants us to go from where we are at now. I have a feeling deep inside that change is on the horizon. I don’t know how I know but, I just know.  I found myself last week burnt out from working and trying to be Wonder Woman. I tend to stretch myself thin, its my nature. Then, I become bitter and angry. This happened to me last week. I was so exhausted that I was lashing out at everyone. I was at the point that I was about to sabotage the blessing God has provided us. I few days to reflect on my life and the blessings in it. Because bitterness has a way of making us blind to blessings. Someone last week said to me, that God hates bitterness and an ungrateful heart. You can not be a man after God’s own heart if you are ungrateful. That really hit home to me.

My mantra for this year has been ,”to be a woman after God’s own heart.” I had allowed ungratefulness, anger, bitterness and selfish ambition to get in the way of that. I had to let it GO! To release it and lay it all at the foot of the cross. God has laid it on my heart to pray and fast more. So, last week I fasted for a day and I prayed. I am praying for direction for us and for whatever He is calling us to do. During that day I did not receive and answer to my prayers. I thought maybe it was a test from the Lord to see if I was serious about prayer and fasting. The other day while driving I was silently praying about things, life things. God gently said, ” Amy I call all of my children. None is above the other. It is the ones who choose to answer that are the chosen.” This was in reference to me always praying to the Lord that I wanted to be a chosen not just a called.

Matthew 22:14

For many are called, but few are chosen.
Then God said, ” Are you sure you want to be a chosen? The ones who chose to answer are mocked, called idiots, look foolish, are beaten and sometimes killed to be my chosen.” I thought about that. WOW. Why had I not realized this before? I found myself feeling foolish at this point. Was I really willing to step up to the plate? I don’t know about you but, I realized I need to build my faith back up. I have also, been struggling to write this post over the past few weeks when clearly it is a message from God to His beloved children. Every time I would get ready to type I would lose my words or get distracted. The first time I wrote this I hit a button on accident and deleted a very long post. I wanted to scream! God laid it on my heart to let Christians know they need to learn to fear God once more. It seems today that no one really fears God. There is all this love and joy which  is true and great. But, God calls us to have a FEAR of the Lord!

Deuteronomy 4:10

Specially the day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.
So much of what I see today is how to create a life you love. How you are responsible of you own life. How YOU are the master of making the life YOU want. It’s all rainbows, fairies, and unicorns. Just scroll social media and everything is a quote about positive living and you being the master of YOU! I am not blameless in this nor am I saying that being positive is bad. I have a hard conviction right now that our enemy is using words like, “live the life you want” ,”create you dream life” and such to steal Christians and keep them from focusing on the true mission. Be doers of the Word not hearers only. We are not to conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed. It seems like Christians are luke warm, they freely do Yoga and freely participate in pagan activities. Doing and accepting things that 10 years ago they would not have done. God is calling us back to Him. We are not FREE to create our lives and do whatever we want we were all bought with a price and that was JESUS. The time is now that we are to be clearly instructed in the Word to share the gospel, to love the broken-hearted and to lead others to Christ. We have been placed here in this time right now, for such a time as this. The enemy seeks to deceive and keep Christians distracted and busy with unimportant matters. None of what we do on this earth is by our design or our making it is all from God above. We must submit to that authority and fear the Lord once more. This is the message I want to share today. It is important for the time is near and living as the disciples did in Acts is what we are called to do again. Do not allow the enemy to deceive you with beautiful words and imaginary dreams. Leading you to believe YOU are in charge of YOUR life. It is not the truth.

James 4: 4-10

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

ad8a97eef8d90c1cdd0006938d470c0f

 

It is important that this message get out. God says the time is near and I do not want anyone to be lost. I love you all!

Love,

Amy

Good Vibes and All things Happy!

Happy Sunday JunkyGypsy Lovers! 

I opened up my blog today just to write a quick post since I have been really busy for the past week and this weekend was no exception! My hubby started his food truck business and I could not be more proud of him! He is such a people person not only that he is an amazing chef and great leader! He has wanted to do his own food for a very long time and this weekend it was finally possible. I was a little scared because we invested every single penny we had in his business and I may have freaked out slightly. I was scared. But, hey when you are pursuing dreams you have to jump in with both feet! I caught myself as I was about to self sabotage his success, and I immediately stopped. I said, ” You know what Amy, this is happening and it is okay. Pursuing your dreams is okay. Not perfect but, okay.” After my little pep talk I gathered myself together and jumped in and helped my hubby. Guess what? He was a SUCCESS!

On to today, I was exhausted this morning but, I knew I had to do a small update on my blog. I pretty much had it all laid out on paper I just needed to transfer the information over and add a new page. Well, while I was doing that I just happened to scroll down and in the bottom corner it said I now have over 1,000 subscribers!!! I could not believe it. I began this year working really hard for that goal to be met. As time went on I figured it would happen organically even if it took a year. No, I was in shock that I jumped over 200 subscribers in 4 days!!! imagesI literally cried. To meet my goal without even focusing on it much. Crazy! I love it and I am super grateful to each and every one of you who subscribed. It means the world to me. Yes, I would say affirmations rock, LOA happens and maintaining Good Vibes is the key to success…along with faith and God!

Thank you beautiful amazing uniquely talented people.

Going forward I plan to add tons of awesome content with great value and truth. I also am going to be totally real and raw! Cause’ that is me–I finally am growing into my whole self and loving it.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.”

Proverbs 3:5-7

My Biz and How it is Growing

df65e24f621c24be890e28c5f1946c0d

 

This is not a typical blog post but, I felt it was important to update those who follow me about the upcoming changes and additions to JunkyGypsy Inspirations. The changes will add value and depth to the products and services available to you.

I already am an essential oil distributor however, the change will be that now instead of just signing up and getting your wholesale account I will have a retail business and sell oils directly to people at retail. This will allow you to purchase from me directly and you can avoid having to join or sign up for a wholesale account if you are not ready. This is not really a huge change for my online business. It will only affect events I am at and so forth.

I am working on developing my brand of JunkyGypsy Journals. YAY! I will have these for sale on my Boutique page when they are finished.

I am adding a new page titled Healthy, Whole YOU! On this page I am only going to promote products I use and provide links for you to purchase. I am creating this page as a way to support you in your journey for health and wellness!

I will be cleaning up my about me page and adding a video instead of the very long detailed page I currently have. Stay tuned for that.

Emails!!! YES, I would love to have all of your emails please. For some reason I am not getting them or have lost ones that I had. I know, that is really bad. I want to keep you informed and inspired weekly with one email on Sunday to start your week out positive, and ready to chase your dreams!! If you are interested then give me your email!

 

 

Lent begins this week, it is a very special time for me personally this year as I am choosing to do more than a fast. I am focused on honoring God and His Son Jesus. My personal conviction from the Lord is to serve others, pray for others, and be a servant during this time. If you would like me to pray for you about anything then you can message me directly on my facebook page and I will do so. I am also, doing other things that I will be sharing on my blog for accountability and encouragement. I pray that you to are embracing Lent this year!

Just an overview if this is the first time you have been on my blog, My name is Amy Siler (aka JunkyGypsy) I have had this blog for 9 years and it started out as a private journal for myself through the years it has changed a lot but, never really grown. This year the Lord gave me vision that aligned with my dreams and goals. I revamped and am still working on it but, the reason I write is to encourage, support, be real about real life, help your growth and self development, to share ways you can live a healthy lifestyle by talking about essential oils, food, supplements, and exercise. Share with you my real life stories the good, the bad and the ugly. Inspiring you to LIVE.LOVE.LEARN and Get Crazy Inspired to live your best life!!

Have a beautiful Sunday Beloved!
