Unraveling the Stress Response
Time feels so abundant to me now that I have slowed down…pleasure surrounds me.
I am choosing BEING MORE and DOING LESS. Breathing into this new mantra.
I had a loved one share with me last night how his anxiety was through the roof!
And many of us use exercise as a way to de-stress but what if you don’t have time?
Or what if you are not physically able? Then what?
Stress is the precursor to all dis-ease.
I am being shown on my most recent journey to health that stress is actually triggering my vertigo response. SHIZNIT!
We know we always have room to uplevel in our life. Whether it is through a new mantra, cleaner eating, more self-care and self-love, or exercising more.
There is always more we can do in taking our health to the next level. Our bodies can talk.
So in an effort to fully surrender to this known fact, I want to share how to truly activate the parasympathetic nervous system; our rest, digest, and relax system.
We already know the sympathetic nervous system response, fight or flight, and many of us live there!
It is imperative that you retrain your body in this day and age so it doesn’t forget how to simply relax. Your health and vitality depend on it.
The good news is it’s available to us all and it can change your life, like it is changing mine.
As I do less, I can hear more…more intuitive hits on where to go and have divine encounters like my recent visit to the health store and the soaking mineral springs spa. Two divine encounters with divine beings that have led me to my healers on my journey.
I am being humbly reminded of all the tools to explore for managing our stress response when our “go-to’s” are on longer in our wheelhouse for healing.
These all support balancing our 7 chakra system.
Balancing needs to start in the root chakra, which will support and address addictions, low self esteem, sense of security, fears, and money issues.
Here are my favorite go-to’s for anxiety, overwhelm and getting back into my body:
Essential lavender oil: This has been such a powerful tool for me this past few months. My anxiety has been through the roof because of vertigo and riding in cars has been the most stressful thing for me! I also use it as a ritual for sleep. I put a drop on the back of my hand and then lick it before going to bed. *Please note it must be high grade and an ingestible essential oil like Young Living or Doterra. (Click here)
Tai Chi: I practice a simple 8-form practice that takes less than 5 minutes a day. I am crafting a new video for my clients now so please email me if you would like to download it when it is released and use it at home! I would love to share…
Get Grounded: Bring energy and balance to your root chakra. Without it, you will be spinning and overwhelmed. Take your shoes off and walk in nature or sit under a tree.
Practice a Mantra: “I am safe, protected, and in my body”. Say this three times as your feet hit the ground first thing in the morning. Simple and effective. I have seen this work for my clients time and time again. Try it for three weeks.
Essential Cedarwood oil: Mentioned over 40 times in the bible and used by the Egyptians and Tibetans for centuries for healing. It brings about mental clarity and focus (yee haw!) and eases anger and tension. Use 2-3 drops on the bottoms of your feet or diffuse in water in an oil diffuser. (Click here)
Wear or Meditate with Stones: Red and Black stones will support balance. Ruby brings about the support of your angels (my favorite necklace is a ruby), balances nutrient insufficiency, depression or mood swings, and fatigue. Obsidian can be grounding especially to just drop in your pocket for the day. Meditate with a stone by rubbing it between your hands generating heat. Then bring the stone to your nose and breath in, as you exhale breath onto the stone. Repeat three times and ask for your guidance and/or support. Here is a great app to give more insight on how different stones can support you.
Take a daily supplement to combat stress on a cellular level: Curcumin from turmeric (Curcuma longa) supports multiple pathways in the body and is a potent free-radical fighter and immune system modulator. By reducing oxidative stress, curcumin is able to help the body resist cellular damage in the brain and in breast, colon, and prostate tissue.* Curcumin research has also shown benefits in supporting healthy blood glucose levels and proper liver function, making this powerful botanical compound a perfect choice.* Source: CURAMED. My daily dose of Curamed (or cooking with Turmeric daily or taking a Turmeric/Curcumin supplement) is the most powerful way to fight inflammation on a daily basis. This is available on my online dispensary…email my team for your personal invitation to join for personal discounted pricing.
A dose of healthy fat: 1-2 tbsp of fat per meal will do. Enjoy avocado, olive oil or olives, coconut oil or butter, nut butter, or grass fed butter. It all counts and it all reduces inflammation in the brain and helps with trillions of cellular functioning.
Trust that everyone, every animal, every being…on your path is here to guide and support you.
You are your best healer and have the divine guidance within! Trust in that and take charge of your health by starting a new daily ritual for managing stress.
