What’s your Why?

There is a pivotal point in all of our lives around the age of two or three when we start to ask the question Why? When my little brother Kris went through his why? stage I was about nine years old and I thought I was going to lose my mind. He had more questions than any of us had answers for, a matter of fact, he still has more questions that I have answers for sometimes but at least now he has Google. I can’t be too mad at my brother. According to my father I have been asking people why as long as he can remember. He said I made him understand that it was the most powerful word in the English language. I still drive my friends, family and clients crazy but they tolerate it because my why questions are effective. 

As a child we ask why to find meaning to the things around us but as we get older sometimes we forget to continue asking. This is where my why questions come in. I seek to dig down into the root of the thoughts, beliefs and decisions that my clients are participating in. I dig into Thoughts, Beliefs and Decisions (TBD) because like the widely used TBD To Be Determined, Thoughts, Beliefs and Decisions will determine how your life with progress. Thoughts become things has become a wide understood concept thanks to the many contributes and thought leaders who took part in Rhonda Byme’s book “The Secret” from a mental spiritual perspective. And has been confirmed by doctors like Dr Bruce Lipton from a biological perspective in “The Biology of Belief.” I believe that we know more now about how to create the life we want to live. 

Knowing is not enough. It takes work. It takes self reflection and sometimes we need help navigating the parts of our personality that make us uncomfortable. Digging in on TBDs in very challenging and many will cut themselves short by saying I don’t know. But if we don’t know ourselves we limit ourselves and our potential. 

As we dig into our Whys and TBDs we find that many of them were caught rather than taught. Start by looking at your regular everyday life. We brush our teeth the way we do because our parents taught us as a kid. Our wake up routine is the same since high school or the military. We raise our children the way we were raised. We keep on keeping on the way we have because we feel like it’s worked this long but do we know the why behind it? While you are looking at your Whys and TBDs do so without judgement. No weighing in if it is good or bad, justified or unjustified. Rather the best measurement is only if it still serves your greatest good.

Healthy Habits Make for a Happy Existence

As a full time entrepreneur one of my first investments was personal health insurance. There are a few ways you can go about doing this, I found a good broker who has been keeping me on temporary plans that are under $100 a month.health-insurance

They only last about 3-6 months and once you get a temporary plan once with any particular company you have to move on to a new one but I have enjoyed looking at the different companies in efforts to find which one works best for me.

In addition to having personal health insurance I found a few every day practices that have helped me to stay in the best health. Your health is not something to take lightly, especially when you are going to work more than you ever have before, IN YOUR LIFE!!!

Today we are going to expand on two practices you can do to Rinse and Spit toxins right out of your body.

Practice One: Oil Pulling Therapy

According to Dr. Karach, Oil Pulling Therapy heals:oil-pulling

  • Head-aches
  • Bronchitis
  • Tooth pain
  • Thrombosis
  • Eczema
  • Ulcers
  • Diseases of Stomach and Intestines
  • Heart disease
  • Blood disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Lung diseases
  • Women’s diseases,
  • Diseases of nerves
  • Paralysis
  • Encephalitis.
  • It prevents the growth of malignant tumors, cuts and heals them.
  • Chronic sleeplessness is cured
  • During the oil-pulling process your metabolism is intensified. This leads to weight loss and improved health.
  • Other benefits of this process; it can fasten (secure) loose teeth, the heal bleeding gums and whiten your teeth.

BE CAUTIONED : Oil Pulling Therapy is a very simple process don’t go buying into the hype.

Preparation- Go to the health food store and buy sunflower seed oil. It was $3.99 at Trader Joes. ( I also use Coconut oil but it is a little more expensive)

sunflower seed oilStep One Insert Oil: In the morning, before breakfast on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon in the mouth but do not swallow it.

Step Two Swish: Move Oil Slowly in the mouth as rinsing or swishing or “sip, suck and pull through the teeth, for fifteen to twenty minutes. “ as Dr Karach puts it. This process makes oil thoroughly mixed with saliva. Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood.

The oil must not be swallowed, for it has become toxic.

As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and white. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough.

Step Three Spit: Spit from the mouth and Clean your mouth out really good. Some suggest using normal tap water and good old fingers to clean, I spit it in the toilet then brush my teeth. Then I wash my toothbrush off with boiling hot water. I drink tea a lot so, I just pour hot water from the tea pot over my toothbrush.

Step Four Clean the sink: You can use some antibacterial soap to clean the sink.

I personally use bleach and use Clorox wipes because the spit contains harmful bacteria and toxic bodily waste.

Practice Two: Gargling with peroxide

The FDA has approved 3% solutions of hydrogen peroxide for use as a mouthwash. Most sources said to use it only for a short time, however, such as part of a treatment of a mouth infection. Although. I had a personal friend who was a dental hygienist for 20 years. She brushed and gargled with it daily to avoid costly dental cleaning procedures.

Gargling with hydrogen peroxide will you kill bacteria in your mouth and help to whiten your teeth. But you have to be careful. Hydrogen peroxide is an acid, and it can damage the tissues in your mouth if you are not careful.

Here is a suggested process to gargle hydrogen peroxide safely

1
Put one cap-full of hydrogen peroxide into a cup

2
Dilute the hydrogen peroxide with 1.5 oz. warm water (Shot Glass)shotglass

3
Pour the mixture into your mouth, but do not swallow.

4
Swish the liquid around so that it is moved between your teeth to kill bacteria on the gums.

5
Gargle the liquid by tilting your head back, opening your mouth and exhaling out of your throat. This will help to kill the bacteria that cause sore throats

6
Prevent swallowing by closing your mouth and continuing to exhale out of your throat as you lower your head over a sink

7
Spit all of the hydrogen peroxide mix into the sink

I challenge you to try these two practices at least every other day for the whole month of February. It is the shortest month of the year. Test drive these healthy habits.

Your Strength 

I’ve learned it takes a certain strength to get up early in the morning for work or school. A different kind of strength to stay up late to get done what is due. A different kind of strength when the baby is up at 3am and you have to be up in two. And yet a whole different kind of strength to put me before you.

It takes a different kind a strength to say no when I want to say yes. I different kind of strength to know I’m worth more, nothing less. Nothing less than the Queen he called me to be. And I still reign in His kingdom humbly while He’s teaching and guiding me.

img_0487Alone I may be but lonely I am not. I know He is there when the blue skies turn grey. When the sky is dark and the sun is tucked away. In the still of the night. Even when I’m weeping He is my joy in the dark times. Greater joy comes in the morning when the clouds roll away. I grow even stronger after the rain has passed away because my faith was watered and roots hold down my faith.
