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,

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!

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.

Love,

8. Bet on yourself.

10. Be #authentic. Be true to who you are.

On this journey of life, we struggle , we grow, we learn, we love, we chase, we catch, we hope, we dream, we fight, we stay, we live!

The In Between.

I wake up with a thought that has been haunting me for the past two weeks. It resembles a lot of my FEAR. It hangs before me day after day staring me in the face. I know what it is. I know how to get rid of it. Yet, still there it is. I just stare at it as if it were a long-lost friend. A warm fuzzy or a neuscience like a fly buzzing around my head. I am afraid of losing its unfamiliar feeling. The excuse to keep it around. So, I just stare at it day after day. I try to move around it and ignore its presence. I work and clean. Do ordinary life stuff. And it just stares right back at me as I dodge its reminder that its there. I get all excited in my personal growth. My business ideas are flying. My creative spirit is marinating in rainbows of beautiful content. I write as if tomorrow is here. I live as if yesterday never ended. I wake. I sleep. I rise with mew hope and aspirations. I am diligent and intentional in everything around me. Yet, there it is day after day. Hanging in my face. Screaming “Amy it is time!!!” I know I am in the in between. One foot in the future one foot in the past. Today’s reality is plain. A confrontation, a pain. To acknowledge it means it failed. It means I failed. It means I lied. I manipulated. Or at least that is what my thoughts tell me. The pain is too much to bear not on me but on another. I simply can not do this again. I know there is no future if I remain and there is no today if I do not acknowledge it. I am sorry. It is to painful to remain in the in between. What do I do? Run, scream, my mind is stirring. I wish this was easy. I wish I could simply close the door. No. God says, ” Let my child go!”

cropped-junkygypsy-1.png

The in between. Like the Israelites in the desert for 40 years. They were not allowed to go in to the Promised Land. They had to conquer Giants and submit their will. This is my last Giant. Then, God says, ” After Amy. You may go.” To deny my God in the face of fear. Is fear of man or fear of God. Some may say it is an easy question to answer. A simple choice to make. I promise you it is not. Fear of failure. Fear of falling. Fear of not speaking in love and grace. I pray for the moment to be over. Yet, it is still there.

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.

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?

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.

Transparency?

JunkyGypsy (1)Hey Guys,

What are your thoughts on transparency? I always thought it was a good thing. To me it meant that you were not fake. People could see the real, raw, YOU! I think today somewhere in the self-development world improvement world people have been told to only be positive and show the highlight reels of their life and biz. I know I don’t want to read about someone being negative and a Debbie Downer for sure. I do like to see if there are others out there struggling through the same issues as I have. I want to see how they overcame. Today, it seems like everyone is all happy-go-lucky and explore your poor world with a smile crap….I don’t know it is just that there is not a lot of the real and the raw.  Like in the Bible–look at Job for crying out loud…his friends tried to tell him that he was not a “good guy”. He must have betrayed God in some way to be treated like he was. They did not want to look at his Instagram for sure..but Job in all wisdom touched it out I mean the guy lost it all and still praised our Lord! Anyway, my point is there are not a lot of people showing there struggles only the end result. I want to be very transparent with you all. So, here is what I wrote the other day:

This is the last week of July can you believe it! We are in full swing of summer and yet, when I went to the store last week the isles were lined with “Back to School” stuff. I always feel the retail world is trying to speed time up year after year. Mentally they are accomplishing their mission. I guess next week Turkeys will be on sale for Thanksgiving! JK. Any who, I have lots to talk about. Have you ever been on the very on the edge of something? You know like a dream that you invested so much hard work and effort into and you find yourself right on the edge of either making it work or falling off the cliff. That’s where I am at. I worked tirelessly on the book I published and now just finished the leg work of the fall DETOXoxo. I am writing a new book, still blogging as often as I can, I am sharing essential oils with whoever will listen, always listening to a motivational book, listening to my mentors, trying to find a place to host classes, I want to go back to school, look for a “real” job as the world would say and I am working on making more videos. It sounds like a lot when I put it that way. Truth is my days are pretty dull. I spend about 4 hours working on the computer, reading, and praying. A lot of praying!! You see none of this “work” has brought me one single penny. Not one. I have a vision and a passion to change the lives of people. But, where are these people or this “TRIBE” I am trying to bring together? I ask myself this every single day….I am not complaining here. I am being transparent so you can see who I really am. I am a 41-year-old mom. My kids don’t live with me they are all adults except the 16 yr. old who went to go live with her sister. Not far from us. Living in my RV in someone’s yard, trying to scrap 2 pennies together to get $5.00 for dog food. You see I am not lazy or unwilling to work. NO. I just left my full-time job last month to move closer to the kids. I just have a dream. I am working hard on it. I am utilizing the gifts that God has given me to build a company and a brand that will change the lives of people. Are you that person? I don’t know. You have to decide that. I know about being overweight, atone point in my life I weighed over 200 lbs. I know about being a young mother struggling to find purpose in the midst of four crying babies, I know the pain of divorce, I have been broke and homeless I have also been rich and stupid. I have been unhealthy and healthy. I have been a teacher, a house cleaner, a seafood manager, a florist, a sales clerk, produce stocker, an owner of a thrift store, a farmer’s market manager, a campground host, a waitress, office manager, and more. I have explored job after job trying to find my place in the world but more often than not trying to pay the rent! Here I am. Amy. You see when I wake up everyday with enthusiasm and excitement to share a tiny drop of wisdom on how you can get healthy by eating an apple everyday or boost your attitude by diffusing essential oils. I speak from experience. I share what I know works. I am not perfect by very very far….but neither are you. Together we can support one another and be a beautiful mess growing, loving, serving, and leading more to do the same. When I create a program, book, blog post, or email. I do it in love. Because I care about the mom who works the 40 hour a week job with 3 kids in school and no time for herself and maybe she hasn’t had a bath in a month because she is always last on the list. I care about the addict shooting up heroin in the back alley of a dirty street with no hope for the future and being so consumed by a drug you can imagine your life in the next 5 min. because it controls you. I care about the overweight person on the verge of being diabetic due to their unhealthy eating habits and toxins in everything. I have found solutions to these problems and I have made the changes, quit the bad habits, and my passion is to help YOU get to where YOU want to be. I love YOU! Truth Talk !

Let me know if tyou do not like transparency or not! I’m all ears!

 

Lots of Love,

Amy
