Spirit Filled Influencer



I am ready to answer the call  on my life, the loud cry to teach and  honor the WORD. To allow it to soak deep into my soul. Allowing it to pierce my mind and influence me in every way. The transformation is real, the love is real, the journey is real. It was a grace filled instant when the WORDS floated off the tethered pages of His masterpiece. The harmony of the wise in words spoken to teach. The pain of the ages of journeys to the end of earth and the beginning of heaven. Courage. Love. Truth. Honor. Resilience. Respect. Desire. Faith. Hope. Healing. Miracles. Discipline. Listen to the language of God. Meditate on the wisdom, the calm, the clarity. Kindness. Gratitude. Salvation. Rebellion. Visions.


Wise love demands transformative toss into the fire which also is a statement for a greater respect of a loving God, Father.

Divine appointments are requested daily.  Do you show up for the possible miracle that awaits? I crave the WORD. My hunger pains are real. My faith indulges my spiritual nature. To serve my God is but the greatest honor and the highest call! The last wave is coming. The radiance of the transformation.


A thought to ponder!




Release the NEED!

Hey Sista Tribe!

I have spent the last few weeks being silent. Do you ever have moments when you feel the need silence yourself? I very much needed a silent break. To just allow myself to be. No judgement, no one telling me what to do, and no pressure of “have toos”. Silence. Giving myself permission to have a glance at my life without any judgement, assumptions, or plans really. It was unintentional at first. I was working my bread and butter and I had no time for my biz. No time to blog. No time to research, read and write new content. When I realized my time crunch I said, “What the hell! I am not going to force something if it is not coming naturally.” Thus, I released the need! You know, that need to be in control. To be in charge. Make it happen happen. You are a boss babe. You need to hustle, hustle, and hustle some more!


Sometimes we do. Then there are the times we don’t. This was that time for me. I do have some cool creative content to release but, I am not going to rush it. I have done that before and it makes me mad that I put out such half ass work. I have discovered some really funky, cool things about myself during the silence– like I enjoy my freedom to work as much or as little as I like. I also realized how I needed a hobby, not a job or business idea just a hobby. I found I am in another growth spurt and I am okay with it. I am growing in a new way it’s different than the other times. I think it is more fun now because I am learning to know my body and my spirit more intimately. I am “in tune”. It’s great!


My sharing the need to release with you is because I know you may be going through or feeling like a lot is on your plate. Let it go! Step back out of judgement, be silent, pray, and instead of asking for direction why not just observe silently. You don’t know what will happen. It is all a miracle!

The Journey to Creative Guru


Her intuition was her fav SUPERPOWER!

Hey JunkyGypsy Tribe!

Did ya know I was on a journey? I have been on this long journey, climbing mountains, wandering through valleys, walking alone on the dirt roads, barefoot and sometimes broken. This journey has been full of rewards and some of the deepest challenges. There have been many tears shed and more laughter than I could contain. Highs and lows are part of the soul journey. I am adventurous in my need to venture off course and take the roads less traveled. With a gypsy spirit and confidence on my shoulder I have no fear. Nothing will stop me. No. I have not yet arrived nor do I believe I ever will. However long this journey is, it is well worth it. It is in the journey itself that my legacy is being created. That my bare soul is revealed. I have a fondness now to challenge myself even more. The new exploration of my weaknesses are of great interest to me.

Why am I afraid of the road called commitment or the trail of confrontation? What is down that road that makes me so scared?

The poison is in the trials and the pain but, the antedote is the miracl

Somewhere, along the journey over the past 5 years I accidentally discovered my inner Guru. I specifically realized very quickly on the path that not only did I have a philosopher spirit but, that I was also a natural creative. My compass intuitively keeps pointing in the direction of Creative Guru.

I began to explore this title more intimately.

Creative: Having or showing an ability to make new things or think of new ideas.

Guru: A person who has a lot of experience in or knowledge about a particular subject.

Now that I know the what I am. I can discover how to heal the lost who I am. God is my intuitive healer. It is in the knowing that I can climb the mountains of my weakness with full faith in God! Being led by the Holy Spirit, revelations will surface and the band aids will be ripped off. I have a desire to heal all the brokeness in my life! Which is the whole purpose of the journey to begin with.

If you are on a path to discover who, what and why you are, I invite you to follow me and join the JunkyGypsy Sista Tribe! Surround yourself with like-minded women who build each other up.

Sending Love & Peace

Tis the Season, Serve



The Holiday Season is in full swing and I have always loved the Christmas Season! The lights, the music, warm lattes, fuzzy socks and the baking with the fam! Oh, how I miss that. This year is drastically different on the home front. The kids are not with me, my prayer is that I can create new traditions and memories as we all grow and venture on our way. Tony Robbins said, ” When a family understands each others gifts and dreams they embrace each other together and understand and appreciate what each is doing. So that if they are all not together they get it.” I love that. Families change and grow as the years pass. Learning to adapt to the change used to stress me out but, now I embrace the beauty of creating something new in each relationship.

Christmas is a time of leaning into my faith and really embracing my Christian roots. I love celebrating my Lord’s birth. This year, I live in a new city and I am excited to celebrate with others here. There are so many holiday activities I want to do!

At the end of December, I reflect on my year. My wins and my losses. This year has been a year of personal wins for me! I took great leaps of faith. I embraced boldness, self love, truth, my authenticity, discipline, and took a massive leap of faith financially! I am excited beyond measure to share that I am attending Amber Valdez’s Life Purpose Cheerleading Bootcamp 2017! I took the plunge and did something I have never done before and invested in myself for my life and business! I know without a shadow of a doubt that greatness will come from participating in this 6 week course! Amber herself is so freaking amazing. She truly is a light in the world. No doubt that 2018 is going to my year of greatness and explosion in life and business. I am not playing small anymore. I am open to receive so that I can give more. I had a realization today that if I hold myself back in any way, it is selfish to the world. Embracing my greatness is a gift to others and my kids. We all approach a place in life when we ask, “Is this all there is?” The answer is NO! You were meant for greatness! We are all called to love each other and serve. Some people are weaker than others and never reach their greatness it is our job to step in and bless them.

This Christmas I am searching for ways I can be a blessing to others for 25 days straight during December. I am challenging each one of you to do the same.


Look for intentional ways to bless at least one person everyday until Christmas. Join me in love and service!

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.

th (1)

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,

Dear Daughter’s

th (1)

This post is dedicated to my daughter’s. Yes, I have one son and I will write a different one for him. For today this is the new message I want to send out into the world to my daughter’s so that they will understand the POWER of their WORDS and create a life they love instead of choosing to be a victim and allow life to “happen” to them.

Dear Beloved Daughter’s,

This is for you. No more I’m sorrys, no more I promise, no more I will do, no more falsehood. Just real words that come with real POWER! This is what I want to share with each of you.

You are fierce and strong. Full of fire, not even YOU can hold YOU back! You have conquered your fears one by one. You are beautiful and smart. You exude peace and choose to walk in integrity. You are powerful and speak your mind. You love others well and always choose kindness. You know your worth and what God says about YOU. You will not tolerate anything less than the BEST for your life. You are independent, focused, and ambitious. You are a BOSS. You handle your own. You are spiritual, selfless, and you understand the definition of unconditional love. You are the best of both worlds. You are an example to ME! Daughter of Zion stand in your strength. Hold onto your truth and be still before your God. Let love radiate out of you onto others. Your presence can not be ignored. Beauty surrounds you. You are loved by all.

Thank you for being my teacher! Thank you for being you.

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! In keeping it simple I give one assignment for growth, one essential oils blend to diffuse, and one question to ask yourself and reflect on. My desire to inspire is always a beautiful thing! Follow me on Facebook to see tomorrows Day 3 activities!

janice & darrenare having a baby boy!please join us for a shower

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!


Hey, I’m JunkyGypsy and we are going to Live.Love.Learn and get crazy inspired together!

Farmer’s 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.

Lots of Love,

What is Your Wall?


Hey Beauties,

Today, I want to shed some light on a subject that has been on my mind lately. I am in a transition period of sorts in my life. It is a strange place for me to be. I know where I want to go and I know where came from. This limbo time is a bit of a struggle. I have been digging deep in the Word of God daily. I feel the Holy Spirit leading me to dig deeper, to lean in and trust God. He wants me to pursue Him like I never have before and that is what I am doing, “I think?”

Everyone wants a beautiful life I believe. Yet, why is it that some are thrust into this world in mud holes or in terrible living situations? Why do some come into the world with everything handed to them? Yet, there are others who scrapped the bottom of the barrel and made it to the very top with everything. I ask myself this question often. I never seem to come any closer to the answer. This year I made big plans. I made breaking bad habits my number one priority and setting the example followed in as a close second on my list of accomplishments for this year. Now, here it is mid July where do I find my ambitions but still sitting on the shelf. Every other week I will pull the list out and be laser focused with this Super Hero Wonder Woman readiness to take full on action and then…….BAM! No not really I just added it for dramatic purposes.

I am at this place, 41 healthy, young, ready to change the world. My mistakes are too numerous to count, but I have forgiven myself and moved past most of them. My kids, YES. That is a major hang up for me. I wanted to give them a beautiful life. I desired to shelter them with love, possessions to numerous to count, a big house and reliable cars in the driveway, family vacas, and holidays that would make Martha Stewart jealous. That never happened. I made lots of bad choices and few good ones here and there. Why am I sharing all of this? I believe this period I am in right now is the just before I get to enter the Promised Land. I must slay the Giants that still exist in my life. You would think I could easily recognize them. Truth is I don’t. In order to figure what they look like I am searching in God’s Word. Everyday, I wake up immediately go to my Bible. I am fully aware that if I want to know what they are that I must pray and submit to the Lord to find out. I decided yesterday to embark on a journey. A quest to learn all I can about what the Bible says about health and wellness, how my body is the temple of God, confess sins I have buried deep inside, submit, find out what my mission is now in my life. I know without a doubt that God wants all of us to have a beautiful life. We should be living in His abundance and peace. I find more often than not so many who are trapped, stuck in their own weakness. Trapped in bad habits, doubt and unbelief. I have been witness to people close to me who embrace their trappings as a form of comfort. Rather than break free they chose to stay in bondage. Fear controls them. I experienced my time with fear, it still grips me at times. I really do want to break free. One of my main goals this year was to be FREE! I feel a strong leading to be an example for others. If I can submit and allow God to teach me through His wisdom daily then I can help others overcome these traps that the enemy seeks to keep people in. I can’t go into detail about the specifics of what the Lord is leading but I am fully committed from this point. A beautiful life does not just happen–it is built daily by prayer, sacrifice and hard-work.

Lots of Love,

Amy aka JunkyGypsyimagesJunkyGypsy


Simple Seeds

JunkyGypsy Inspirations

Hey JunkyGypsy Lovers!

Well, I did it! Not by myself but, with my hubby ,whom is super awesome supportive and rocks my world! It all began last winter. My hubby and I were constantly busy with work, life you know just the stuff that takes up all your time because you are doing more stuff that takes up more time. He came up with the idea, it was brilliant I must say! One day after work I pulled out a composition notebook, we were to answer three very simple questions. The idea was that we each would answer the same three questions everyday in a different way for each other. Whoever, grabbed the notebook first had the task of answering the questions. Honestly, I think we were both so excited about the challenge that we both fought over who would go first! Then of course,one would be left waiting patiently for the their turn. Mike came up with the questions. I couldn’t argue it was brilliant, simple, easy, honest , raw and loving. On the first day the question starred me in the face.

What is something you want for the other? 

“That’s good. ” I thought. I had to answer this question everyday in a different way? “Ge’ez this might be harder than I imagined.” Nevertheless, I was up for it. So, day after day we continued. As each day progressed my answers  became more in-depth as his remained simple and to the point. It was great. Our marriage was blooming. We had found a way to communicate our love for one another in a new and fun way. Now, we decided to share it with the world. I truly believe all marriages will benefit from this 21 day challenge. It is super simple, fun and innovative. What makes this journal work is that a couple works from the same journal. It takes less than 10 minutes a day to complete the task.
