What’s in A Name?

Hey Sista Tribe!

I have missed you lately! Christmas is right around the corner I pray you are celebrating in love and peace with your families! This topic is a little out of the Christmas spirit but, one I wanted to address before heading into the New Year. The last few days I felt some sort of yearning to possibly change the name is my business. I have mentioned this before in the last few weeks. I even did a poll on Facebook to get some feedback regarding my business name. My mind has been swirling around wondering “Why?” Why should I change the name of my business? What is causing me to question it all of a sudden? After, asking myself these questions and really pondering it. Here is what I came up with;

JunkyGypsy (4)

What does JunkyGypsy Inspirations mean to me? 

Gypsy is out of my desire and passion to be a wanna be nomad. I truly love the idea of traveling and being “FREE” so to speak. Junky comes from my artist nature and creative spirit to create fun boho chic art from old antiques and collectibles. I added the Inspirations because I really have a heart and burning desire to inspire women to LIVE.LOVE.LEARN & Get Crazy Inspired! I thrive when I am being real, raw, and Amy. If you asked any one of my kids, siblings, or mom (who has passed) they will say about my funky color patterns and boho designs, my unique sense of bizarre humor, my deep passion for learning everything I can about anything that inspires me and teaches me, long grey sweaters and boots, dark eye makeup and my deep sense of soul passion, my ability to see people for who they really are, my quiet nature that observes all and gains insight and wisdom, my ability to avoid confrontation on any and all fronts due to my fear of others, how I hunger for a deep, fervent relationship with few, how most of the time I sit on my feelings until they build into a pile of exploding mashed potatoes! These are my qualities, this is who I am. This is me and out of all of that my desire is to offer the world, my unique gifts as a present for the ones who choose to link themselves to me intuitively. I aspire to share the pains of life and how to be a warrior woman through and through. To be raw, real, and truthful about how I came to own my power and step into “me”. To be a light in the darkness when others feel they are unworthy and desire to find “a better way”. I share through my creative spirit woman. My instinct is in the WORD. My pen is the flame that serves the masses. This is why I named my business JunkyGypsy Inspirations.  Join me in building a beautiful Sista Tribe where we create the culture of supporting one another to LIVE. LOVE. LEARN. & Get Crazy Inspired to change the world!

Yes, my brand is JunkyGypsy Inspirations and I am here to inspire.

The Naked Woman

JunkyGypsy Inspirations (11)

 

Hey Sista Tribe,

It is Sunday evening and I am implementing a new ritual. One I have been trying to put into practice for some time now. It is the ritual of looking ahead at my week and making sure that priorities are scheduled and each day has a action plan in place to bring me closer to my dreams and goals. The main priority other than God, kids and work is to promote my event that is being held on November 15th at 6:30 PM. The event is titled, ” The Naked Woman”. You may be asking yourself what exactly is the event and who is it for?

I created the title for the “shock” factor. Also, to spark some interest in the community. This event is strictly for woman, age does not matter. I have a deep conviction and know my purpose & passion is to help Sista’s let go of limiting beliefs & live a healthy, vibrant, life they are in love with I am sharing my story of Manifesting & Miracles, and by being real & transparent with women let my truth shine.  I  am determined to inspire those who are ready to make a shift in their life.  I am going to give you the tools and resources along with mentorship that women need to live life in the abundance and joy that God created us to live in.. I share from experience my real  life wins and losses, the joy  of everyday life, health & wellness, & my deep connection to faith. I am a mama to 5 grown children. I have been both rich and poor. I have been homeless and successful, I kept my focus on where I wanted to be. As a result, of going for greatness I am achieving my life goals. I found the secret supernatural formula. Now, it is my mission to help YOU create a “high vibe” life! This is where I live now. The very core of my mission & passion is loving on and leading Sista’s to their greatness. This is why I created my event. It is different and unique in its own right. I would like this to grow into an annual event. But, right now I am truly excited and inspired to love on and share what I have learned! I believe deep down, together we can build a beautiful tribe of women who lead thier lives in excellence and who share the same passion & commitment I do. LIVE with intention. LOVE with passion. LEARN for life! Get Crazy Inspired!

If you live near the Charlottesville area, I want YOU to come!

Hey JunkyGypsy Tribe!

I hope you had a truly inspiring weekend! I set aside time this weekend for some massive intentional self-care. It was awesome! My last post I focused solely on the art of manifesting. This subject alone is in the top ten for Google topics. Everyone wants a magic formula to create or escape their current situation. Yes, you absolutely can manifest awesomeness into your life. You must know, like I explained in my post, sometimes it takes a while to see the results of manifesting. It could be days, weeks, and even years.

Today, I want to share a subject that has been popping up continuously in my life this year. I think I may have touched on the subject before. It is a subject that everyone enjoys talking about but no one wants to actually do. If ya feel me. It is the subject of self-discipline. Yep, I have read articles, blog posts, and watched YouTube videos and Podcast on this very subject. As if by my listening or reading would magically mean I practiced the act of self discipline. Self discipline means when you have something to do you just do it, regardless of whether you like it or not. I remember as a child enjoying discipline. Weird, right? I enjoyed boundaries and ,”No, Amy you can not..” from my parents. I think it is because in the realm of discipline it kept me in a “safe zone” so to speak. It also made me look like the “good girl”. Which, I certainly was not!

Sweet Sixteen

It all began last week when my fav rock star mentor posted a link to a Podcast. With the very subject of discipline. It was Order of Man Podcast Episode 135 Jocko Willink. I suggest listening to this amazing episode! Anyway, he talks very plainly about people who have honest, raw and real discipline in their life. Simply put these kind of people lead a “no Excuses aloud” lifestyle. They get up, do what is required of them and they don’t take the ( I don’t feel like it) pills. They just do. I asked myself, “What happened to the Amy that used to be like that?” I lost the motivation of self-discipline by becoming a follower of whatever crowd I was trying to please at the time. I was too afraid to live my truth and stand my ground many times in my life. Where as now, I know that being a follower gets you no where in life. Actually, it often gets you in tons of trouble and causes a lot of pain.

Like I said, this subject has been on the forefront of my life this year as one I want to conquer. Just like stepping out of my comfort zone and being uncomfortable, self-discipline is right there beside it. Having sat on this for a few days and figuring out how one can be to implement more discipline in their daily life to guarantee success I came up with this little list of ways you can begin. Self-discipline, like a muscle, can be developed. Just like you, I am implementing these into my life right now. Get out your journal and write these down to save for later when you have a moment where you want to not be so disciplined!

  1. Don’t take the ” I’ll wait till I feel Like it” pill. Just do it!
  2. Stop the excuses! Right now!
  3. Make self-discipline a non-negotiable right now.
  4. Remove temptations!
  5. Practice tolerating emotional discomfort.

Self discipline is something that you can learn by continuous practice, over and over, until you master it.  Once you have mastered the ability to delay gratification, the ability to discipline yourself to keep your attention focused on the most important task in front of you, there is virtually no goal that you cannot accomplish and no task that you cannot complete. There you have it. The key here is self-discipline has to be practiced daily and you must learn to delay gratification! Let go of the ” I want it now.” or the “I deserve it” attitude because it is not serving you in your best. If you truly desire to lead at your highest and best then you have to develop self discipline. I pray this post motivates and inspires you to LIVE intentionally, LOVE with passion, LEARN for life! Get Crazy Inspired to be the best version of you!

Manifesting Beauty

JunkyGypsy (4)

Hey, JunkyGypsy Tribe Lovers!

Magic has been happening in my life-like crazy this past month! My life today is vastly different from what it was a month ago. There was a time in my life where I thought I did not have any choices. Now, whenever I think back I say, ” Amy what the hell was wrong with you?” It is crazy to just “let” life happen. This brings me to the topic of discussion today, manifesting! If you are a self-help addict like me then you probably know all about manifesting. If you don’t have a clue to what I am talking about I am going to explain.

th1MUJLDHY

Manifesting is what you do to consciously to create the life you want. It is not magic nor is it a crystal ball. Get that idea out of your head. Manifesting is believing for something you want or desire in your life. A better way to describe it would be simply having faith. Because you want something you can not see or touch. You probably have no idea or plan of the how to get it, either. I once thought that manifesting was total BS. I believed in faith, but as far as actually manifesting something I wanted, I did not think it was possible. It wasn’t until I read a few books on choices and taking responsibility for my life. That I learned manifesting was a real possibility. I had to take full ownership of my life and own up to my mistakes, bad choices and the good choices I made. After, I learned how to take full responsibility of my life then, I could really think about what it was that I wanted. I discovered the things I wanted in life were vastly different from my actual life. This is when I began to believe in the power of manifestation. I changed the way I was thinking and I changed my journaling practice. I approached journaling in a positive way unlike in the past, where my journal was more of a whiners diary. I began the practice of affirmations. I also, made a vision board. This allowed me to physically see what it was I wanted and chart a map to get it. Today, I have manifested my life as it is right now. I sit typing in a beautiful home, in a city I wanted to move to for years. I manifested my two jobs and where they are! I manifested my actual bus ride here. Now, I am working on manifesting business plans.

th

In order for you to begin to manifest the desires in your heart, take ownership of your life. Make a vision board, this gives you a visual of what you want. Next, start saying outloud and writing affirmations that line up with your vision for your life. Write them out everyday! This is key. I have sticky notes all over my room with affirmations on them. Have faith that what you desire will come to you. This next part is the meat behind the manifestation, you must take ACTION in the direction of your dreams and goals for manifesting to work.  There have been times in my life where I really wanted something and I had faith and believed I was truly going to manifest it but, then nothing. Don’t be discouraged when that happens just believe there is something better out there for you. If it is not meant to be it won’t.

I hope this little post has given you a tool you can use to LIVE with intention, to LOVE with passion and LEARN all you can everyday! Get Crazy Inspired to live your dreams! You only get this one life. Make it magical and beautiful. Give all the glory to God in whom it belongs!

Magic of Creating A Life You Love

JunkyGypsy Inspirations (11)

 

Hey Tribe Sista’s,

It has been a while since my last post and a lot has been going on to say the least. Life. I always though of life as living. Existing and only ever reaching a height or hitting the ceiling after you get married, have kids, buy a house, two cars and a dog. Or at least that is the way the story goes. Ok so maybe I exaggerated a little, actually a lot when it comes to the movie my life played out so far. Married at 18, four kids by 25. No house except the occasional rental. Car, yes, dog & cat yes. For ten years I was the main character of this movie. As year by year progressed and physical and emotional abuse ensued. The best thing out of this story are my four amazing kids. That is the reason for the whole story anyway. Simple and not really hard to figure out, God blessed me these awesome individuals. As the story goes life happened to me and not for me during these early years. Which brings me to the second section of my story. It involves a rescuer, a savior in my eyes. A leader, a handsome figure. My knight in shining armor. Rushing to my rescue amidst the crazy that was my family. He stood up for me and took charge, which is exactly what I wanted for a squeaky little mouse like me at the time. I loved every minute of it. We were a blended family but plagued with troubles of courts and custody, child support and all things that involve a blended family. It almost seemed doomed from the beginning. We fought it out, through owning a business and the lost of home after home. Part due to the economy and part due to lack of work. I was wore out during these twelve years. I was run ragged and the thought of trying to fix it all was just too much for me. What did I do instead after ten years I began to look at myself and contemplate what my internal issues were. Slowly, over a period of three long hard struggling years and the lost of our children and more homes did I find my power! My inner strength I had always had. The ability deep within my soul to make the changes I so longed for. Which brings me to part three. This is really just the beginning and the real “meat” of what I want you to hear me say.

Just like I spent many years in reflective self-development, before I found the Wonder Woman power I was born with. You too may need to spend some time on internal work. I had to get very, very clear with what I wanted. Day after day, I filled journals with every detail of my new life that was to be the third chapter. Today, I am living very much the vision that has come to pass. I witnessed first hand the magic power in my words and the evidence of miracles attached to them.

Holiday

I never really thought manifesting worked until this past week. Having witnessed the power of manifesting I am a firm believer for life. I manifested the job I start today. I manifested the house I am living in. Now, I am ready to manifest bigger and bolder things like expanding all aspects of my business and finances. This will work for YOU! Here are some simple steps to follow to get you creating a magical life you love.

  • Begin every morning early by journaling what you are grateful for.
  • Write out affirmations that are reflective of the life you want to create. This is the part that you must be very clear on. Example; I live in a cute house in the mountains with a mountain view of my back deck.
  • Visualization, you have to close your eyes and visualize what your dream life feels like. What do you smell? How does it feel to be in this place? What do you hear? Take about 5 minutes every morning to do this.
  • Be intentional about your days. Plan each day with action plans that will move the needle closer to your dreams.

These are the actions I took everyday for over three years. It did not have to take that long but, I had to learn more about myself before the needle could fully move. I am off to my new job and so very grateful for the opportunities I have and the ones to come! I love you all and thank you for being on this journey with me.

Love,

JunkyGypsy

Creating the Dream

images

Hey Love,

I have been on a rampage today. This morning I began with a simple prayer but one I have been praying for sometime now. I pray for God to give me wisdom, knowledge and understanding as He did for Solomon. I have craved wisdom just so I would stop making the mistakes I keep making and living a small life. I know I am meant for more. I know with my business that I have a ministry to women and to my children. Today was jam packed with eye opening wisdom. I have zoned in on my purpose and my WHY. Everyday it gets a little clearer and more focused. I fully accept responsibility for the lack of growth in my biz. I have sat behind this computer acting AS IF, but doing nothing on the outside. I feel led to host and event in the near future and speak in front of hundreds of my beautiful Sista’s. I am going to share my journey and my story. I know, I can not share it until I have walked the lessons out first and I have a few that I must face head on before I can share. Why am I pouring my heart out?

To get you excited. Have you been on the edge of something you know you must do? Have you been silently suffering inside and dying a little each day because you know you were meant to do more? Does your life look anything like the vision you had when you were young? No. That is what I thought. Mine either. I will tell you before that awaking can happen you must find your POWER. Do you know what your POWER is? let me tell you. Your POWER is: your strength, your discipline to do what is right, your hope for the future, your dreams, your integrity, your prayers, your peace, your joy, your freedom, your resilience, your love, your passion, your beauty, your attitude, your patience. It is any strong characteristic that you uniquely have. What happens to us (women) is we often give our POWER away for free all the time without realizing it. I have finally found mine and I am rebuilding the infrastructure of my POWER to be stronger than ever. I made a promise to myself that I would never give it away again. Ever. As women we must be very intentional about protecting our POWER. If our boundaries are weak then before long our POWER has been lost. You might be a loud assertive woman and say to yourself, ” This chic is crazy I got my sh*t together.” Sometimes we have lost access to our POWER without even knowing that it was stolen or misplaced. Once you find out that you have to get control of your POWER slowly you will begin to see the things differently again. The truth will shine out of the darkness. The windows of your soul fly open and a new breeze is blowing. Your world changes from the inside out. With that newness, you can decide the direction of your dreams. You can set your goals and learn new habits. You are a super star! Now that I have found my POWER, my eyes are open to understand complexity and constant change are everywhere and I can now avoid extreme thinking. Which was a big problem for me. I am transforming my mind and my thinking and learning new skills that align with my dreams and goals. Through my experiences I can share with you Sista’s your own path to FREEDOM. I want you to be free in all areas of your life! Beautiful beloved you deserve all the awesomeness you dream life has to offer! If you are interested in joining me in my journey let me know! I want to cultivate a culture of Sista’s who celebrate life for all it is and dream big together. To share our battles and our victories. To love and lift in prayer and praise. Let’s live a passionate life of servanthood. Share your story below, I want to hear!

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

Intermittent Fasting

fast

I want to talk about fasting. I have been really intrigued with the practice of fasting. Whether, it is a 3 day or 40 day fast, God has sparked my interest in setting aside time to do a fast.My devotion to help people Live.Love.Learn and Get Crazy Inspired, is sharing with you what I am educating myself on so that I can be an example of prime health to YOU! I have noticed that fasting gets a lot of attention in the health and wellness world today. I do not disagree with the reasons people have for doing a fast but, I do think people should not do it just because it is the “latest thing.” Fasting is important to God. That is why it is an example to follow in the Bible for a healthy well-balanced life. I want to share some of the benefits your mind, body, and spirit will experience if you commit to fasting periodically in your life. Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and fasting.Numerous studies show that it can have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Fasting itself isn’t necessarily a “cure” for anything. What it does is “set the stage” or create the environment in which healing can occur.

Documentary on Fasting!

Eat, Fast, and Live Longer

There are many different ways to fast and many different things to fast. Some people may need to fast social media for 40 days and some people may need to fast caffeine and sugar for 7 days. Specifically, today I want to focus on fasting food for a period of time which could include fasting every other day for 10 days. This is called intermittent fasting and it has huge benefits on the body.Whatever you feel led to do, fasting is not and does not make you miserable and weak it has the opposite effect. I am going to list seven benefits of intermittent fasting.

1-Intermittent Fasting Changes The Function of Cells, Genes and Hormones

3-Intermittent Fasting Can Reduce Oxidative Stress and Inflammation in The Body

4-Intermittent Fasting Induces Various Cellular Repair Processes

Dr. Mercola Interviews Dr. Varady About Fasting –YouTube Video about Fasting!

These are only a few of the benefits your body will experience when you fast. There are so many more. Intermittent fasting is actually very popular right now because it improves your health while simplifying your life at the same time. I do urge you to do your homework so you can understand “WHY” you may want to do a fast. Do not just do it because everyone else is. It won’t work. And you will have wasted your time and potentially lose all interest in fasting. If you don’t like the idea of fasting, then you can safely ignore all of this. Just continue to do what works for you.

Love,
