Being Open to Receive

Acceptance - McGill

Have you ever stopped to think about your life and where you are? This
morning while running errands a part of me was meditating. I don’t meditate the way it is described on the internet. I just quiet a part of my mind and talk to the “still small voice” in my head – some people call this prayer.

While I was talking to the voice I remembered I asked why is it I’m not doing as well as I know I can? Is someone (including me) holding me back? Being that I was sent this opportunity, why is it I haven’t gotten anywhere yet? I quieted myself and listened.

The answer was something that I didn’t expect. I saw in my mind a glass turned down like it was drying after being washed. I then saw a house where all the windows and doors were closed and locked tight. The voice told me that I was not open to receiving.

I do believe that energy goes to what one focuses on. However, for the past 2 years I’ve been focusing on growing my company the way the average person is taught to grow a network marketing business. I am not fond of calling people who are in my warm or hot market as all of them don’t believe in direct sales or network marketing even though many are business owners and have the entrepreneurial spirit. And although I’m very comfortable talking to strangers and got appointments to “show the plan” I wasn’t very good at “sealing the deal.”

Over the past 6 months the focus was more concentrated on the NPO (Non Profit Organization) program of this company. As I said in past entries I love working, and I love challenges; however I don’t do well without purpose. Changing my perspective has brought many influential people into my life and made it easy for me to get in front of groups to talk about how I can help them and their cause in fundraising. A few months ago I was able to sponsor a Fantastic non-profit the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. Sadly, I haven’t been able to connect with the contact person as much as I need to as he has had a VERY FULL schedule though the more I “wait” the more I am doing to set the foundation for their campaign.

In the last 2 weeks I’ve been contacted by 5 non-profits. I am very upfront that I’m utilizing a network marketing company to leverage the community and further the community’s growth. I had a woman to completely flip out! She was so excited! She fully understood the value and leverage of network marketing. Since talking with her I’ve been pushed up the ladder of this non-profit and have a meeting with the president of the county next week. I’m so grateful!

How my vision ended was with me struggling but succeeding in turning the glass upright and opening the doors and windows of this house. For the glass it was like my hands were tied behind my back, and for the windows and doors I was walking through the house but couldn’t open anything.

 

Update – I wrote this last Wednesday and didn’t publish. Since then the windows have opened, though the doors are still locked, AND the glass is now upright starting to collect water.

Your Health, Their Profit

Priceless Possession

You ever notice that we get bombarded about drugs promising to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, or temporarily overcome erectile dysfunction.

We are taught that drugs are the way to make things better when in fact many times they harm our bodies to “fix” symptoms. Take a moment one day to just sit down and watch commercials. When you see any on drugs turn up the volume and listen to the list of side effects – sometimes as severe as damage to heart, liver, or kidneys.

I was put on a drug to help my asthma. Thankfully I stopped using it after my wheezing cleared. Recently I saw a commercial about that same drug and the quiet talk stated that it “increases asthma related death” WHY WAS I PRESCRIBED A DRUG THAT WOULD INCREASE MY CHANCES OF DYING FROM WHAT IT WAS TRYING TO FIX?

I had another incident of having severe bronchitis. I went to my pulmonologist who gave me 3 prescriptions. At the time I also just started with Isotonix OPC-3. Within 2 weeks I could stop all my meds as my chest cleared completely. At my follow up my doctor was most impressed with how well I improved. I use OPC-3 every morning on an empty stomach and now don’t have any allergy or asthma issues! My mom’s arthritic swelling has gone down!

The other commercials that bother me are for liquid meals. Instead of promoting nutrient filled meals, companies would prefer that we, the consumers, drink a highly processed meal as opposed to an actual meal. Why do we let these companies program us?

The most ironic part is that organic nutrient rich pet food is a growing trend. One commercial even stated that the pet is “one of the family”… so why do many parents feel it is ok to regularly feed children low nutrient fast food and sugar rich foods. Basically then with this line of thinking, a pet is more important than a child?

Considering these facts

  • “64-69% of the Americans take supplements”
  • “nearly half the world’s population suffers from Vitamin D deficiency”
  • “liposuction is now the leading form of plastic surgery in the United States”
  • “35.3% of Americans are overweight” (I’m tired of hearing about diabetes and obesity)

Why don’t we as a people insist on change?

As a nutraMetrix Consultant I talk with health professionals about implementing customized wellness programs. A few I have spoken to have told me that they “don’t believe in supplements” or “there is no proof that these work”.

Isotonix supplements are the same pressure as your bodily fluids. These absorb into your body within 5 minutes of ingestion. NutraMetrix has DNA analysis which can pin point exactly what you as a patient gets a wellness regimen specific for you. We have lifestyle weight loss programs with TLS consultants who work within the practice so that the progression is overseen by a doctor.

Contact your your doctor and those of your loved ones and connect them with NutraMetrix Consultants in your area. If you don’t know any NutraMetrix Consultants contact me, I’ll get one to contact you. Or if you are interested in learning more about NutraMetrix or TLS (Transition Lifestyles) contact me.

Wouldn’t you prefer that your neighborhood health professional bring health and wellness to the community? Or would you rather drug companies gain from your dis-ease?

For My Son – a Very Important Ripple

For My Son – a Very Important Ripple

When I think of doing anything I think how does it affect my life and how will it help me be a role model for my son

Growing up I remember my mom’s family told me to travel the world, experience all that I can, and do everything I can before I got married. For the longest time I felt that getting married was life ending. I eloped after dating a really nice guy for 2 years. After a year we moved to Los Angeles and I announced my marriage along with the coming birth of my son.

He came after we had decided to wait for 5 years. I thank the Universe every day for such a Fantastic child. I see my beauty, my strength, my dreams, my goals. I got to hear him talk to his friends when he was in the 3rd grade. He told them how his mom works at home and how she is always able to be there. To him this was the norm.

Later that year I took a job as a door to door “sales person”. I loved what I did, but I worked LONG HOURS! Sometimes I would come home to my little person waiting up for me. I remember one night I scolded him for not being asleep. It took me a shower to realize what I had done… I was scolding my child for wanting to see me and spend time with me!!

I love spending time with him, volunteering at his school, supporting him at swim meets, and watching him in orchestra. I love that he volunteers locally, helps those around him, and takes responsibility for what he has to do and accountability for what he has done. I was pleasantly surprised that he has inherited my love for traveling, public speaking, and helping others. I’ve always told him that my job as a mom is to make sure he grows up to become an upstanding citizen of the planet.

I want to Build a Better Community for my son and I’m happy he wants to help me.
