What if Illness and Lack were your Greatest Teacher for Prosperity?

0D18DC92-2C4A-4656-A97E-0E6E4CCE1685

Just by its nature, illness puts you in a state of lack. It creates exhaustion, loss of health, loss of income, pain, fear and grief. Serious illness threatens your life on all levels, especially if it is long term.  You can not create health and abundance from this state of consciousness and more likely you continue to create more of the same.

Part of healing is pulling yourself out of this state of mind. Many people don’t have the tools or inner resources to do this and often end up living in this place of lack.

Imagine if illness and the subsequent financial difficulties that often follow came into your life to teach you how to be healthy and abundant and you needed to be a willing student in order to learn. Easier said than done, right? You are sick, exhausted and broke for God’s sake! I get it because that has been my journey for the last 3 1/2 years. It’s easy to find lack because it is always in your face, in the pain, the doctor visits, exhaustion, fear, unpaid bills and the phone calls from bill collectors you get every day.  Those things constantly pull at you.

Before I had the first of five heart attacks and open heart surgery, I believed I was prosperous and healthy and I was on the physical level. I didn’t have credit card debt, I was making $8000-$10,000 per month, I could travel, bills were paid on time, I could give money to people in need and physically I felt great.  But a true state of prosperity and health is an inner state of mind that has nothing to do with the external world or having money. From an inner state of health and wellness we attract everything we need.

That was where I was still out of balance and had things to learn. My path was one of cultivating a prosperous heart. In order to do that and to see and discover what was out of balance I needed to experience extremes and as an added twist I needed to do it alone rather than having a partner to support me.

I realized from the beginning that I was being asked to be the student of this powerful teacher. I am not saying I was always willing and that there wasn’t screaming, crying and bashing of teeth, yet I learned so much about who I truly am by having my world turned inside out! Illness has been a formidable teacher.

Now I end my day with a question that you might want to try too. How was I prosperous today? From there I look back on my day thinking about how I was gifted with health, financial abundance, love and joyful experience and feel grateful.

You can pull yourself out of lack consciousness after serious illness. I am not saying it is easy. I am saying with a commitment to living a new state of consciousness from what you are currently experiencing and baby steps and self compassion you can do it!

A Calm Heart

Progress report!
Supplement plus inner work.

I wanted to make sure this wasn’t a just fluke before I posted this.

I am super excited about this!!!

Ever since the first heart attack 3 1/2 years ago I could feel my heart beating in my chest all of the time. I am not saying I would put my hand over my heart and feel it beating. I didn’t have to do that. It was beating so that I could feel it without touching my chest.

It wasn’t because I was stressed out. It was when My bpm was normal 60-70 BPM. When I was stressed out it was 5 times as strong like it was going to jump out of my chest. Sometimes it was hard to go to sleep because I could feel it in the front and the back. It was pounding with a normal heart rate as if it wanted my constant attention. It wanted me to see something.

I don’t know if other people feel their heart beat like this, but I never did. It did it’s thing and I didn’t pay attention because I couldn’t feel it.

I did some deep emotional clearing on the solar eclipse and I started the second week of the supplement I am taking.

Yesterday I woke up and my heart wasn’t beating like it has for 3 1/2 years. I can’t feel it. It sounds weird to say I am excited that I can’t feel my heart beating , but I am. It blows me away, actually.

My heart feels quiet and peaceful. It feels like it is beating to a new joyful frequency. I feel this unexplainable joy frequency in my body.

I see this as huge progress toward the wellness I am moving toward. I have seen what my heart wanted me to see and now it has settled down. Maybe it is telling me the tumor is gone. Time will tell. With a joyful, peaceful heart, healing is probable ❤️

I have an amazing heart. No doubt about it!

PS…I am curious if other people feel there heart beat all of the time?

Heart Disease is an Epidemic

#Healthyhearttip

Few people alive today are old enough to remember the beginning of the coronary heart disease (CHD) epidemic in the 1920s and 1930s, when physicians in the U.S. and U.K. began sounding alarm bells that an uncommon disease was rapidly becoming the leading cause of death. By the 1950s, their predictions had come true. A decade later, a new generation of physicians replaced their predecessors and began to doubt that heart attacks had ever been uncommon. Gradually, the idea that the disease was once uncommon faded from the public consciousness, and heart attacks were seen as an eternal plague of humankind, avoided only by dying of something else first.

According to U.S. National Vital Statistics records beginning in 1900, CHD was rarely given as the cause of death by physicians until after 1930. It used to be uncommon and now it is such a common occurrence that it’s an epidemic. It happens so often it’s like the common cold.

Did you know that 80% of heart attacks and stroke can be prevented through education and lifestyle changes. Here we are almost 90 years later and the medical interventions still being used are pharmaceuticals, stents and bypass surgery.

Doctors aren’t taught about natural supplements and nutrition as an option. It was natural supplements that save my life as far as I am concerned. What is considered a heart healthy diet is far from heart healthy.

When I was in the hospital after one of the heart attacks, they brought me a menu and I order the things that would fit with the Paleo diet I had been on. Lots of veggies and a hamburger without a bun, no wheat and no dairy. Soon after my food arrived a nurse ran into my room and grabbed my tray and told me I couldn’t eat that and that my food needed to come from the Heart Healthy Menu.

She arrived a few minutes later with a large plate of spaghetti, covered in sauce with meatballs! I was stunned! If this was what was being fed to heart patients as heart healthy, it would appear they were trying to kill people off! This wasn’t the exception. All of the heart healthy food was like that. If it was low sodium and low fat you could eat it. Nothing else was taken into consideration.

I wrote my book to address what wasn’t being address. Things you can do to prevent heart disease in the first place .Mystick Creek Publishing

Sometimes Only Paper will Listen.

#healthyhearttip

From my book Resilient Heart, Chapter 38, “Sometimes only Paper will Listen”

“I have been journaling almost every day for over 30 years. I buy bound journals rather than notebooks with ring binding because I feel it gives the writing a sense of importance. It feels like an actual book that you are writing.

When I first started journaling it was an exercise in emptying my mind of things that just kept spinning around. My journal has become a friend and confidant over the years. It’s the place where I can talk with my wise Inner being, learn about myself and get advice and clarity.

I journaled my way through my heart healing journey, when I was in Austria and couldn’t speak to my roommates and most of the staff because of the language barrier, I wrote in my journal. Journaling saved me from going stir crazy, gave me someone to talk to and helped me sort out what I was feeling.

Research shows a connection between creative self expression, which journaling is, and health. Now journal writing can be beneficial to your health according to scientific evidence. Studies suggest it can help in the following way:

Help reduce high blood pressure
Enhance immune function
Decrease the symptoms of asthma
Reduce arthritis symptoms
Promote wound healing
And help people quit smoking “

I think everyone can benefit from a journaling practice.

Broken Hearts

 

07FB6D68-2636-4934-9479-BCA82439C3A6.jpeg#healthyhearttip

This piece is from the introduction to Resilient Heart, and it is directed toward women, though it certainly can be true for men too.

“I believe that the real metaphor in heart disease is that many of us are walking around with broken hearts. I know I was and I didn’t even realize it because it was an issue I had worked on for years. I thought I had done the work.

As women, we have had many reasons to suffer broken hearts. We have only just begun to get equal rights with men. We have been paid less, devalued, considered second class citizens and have been held back in all kinds of ways. It’s in our DNA. I also imagine that most women reading this book have had failed relationships, because our generations have been the guinea pigs for creating a new relationship model that was different than our parents and we have struggled to get it right.

Many of us have had our hearts broken and haven’t had time to grieve because we were left as single parents trying to survive and provide for our children. Who had time to mend a broken heart? I didn’t! I was in survival mode for 14 years and couldn’t think about myself. During those 14 years I had other relationships that ended up breaking my heart to compound the issue.

It is time for us to realize that we are the very essence of the Divine, that we are beautiful, have great value,are bright, creative and we are not going to be held back. It’s time to mend our broken hearts and stop this epidemic of heart disease. It is my hope that by reading this book you are inspired to take the steps to heal your heart before you have a heart attack. Women no longer need to be statistics of any kind. “
