Detoxifying, Self-Loving Foot Bath Practice

footbath.png

This self-care treatment can be anywhere and gives you all the benefits of an epsom salt bath even if you don’t have a bathtub or don’t want to bother with the whole body getting wet.

It’s also a wonderful practice for the changing of the seasons we are in as it will boost your immune system and make you feel super cozy! I try to do epsom salt baths or foot soaks at least three times a week.

The best time to do this is right before bed, but you can do it any time you need a little extra care.

PS - if you own a salon or spa - this would be a beautiful way to honor the health of your clients and their feet will feel so soft and fresh! Plus this foot bath will cost way less than the harmful chemicals your salon might currently be using.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2c plain epsom salts: transdermally delivers sulfur and magnesium (majority of people are deficient) and both of these minerals support your body's detoxification

  • 1/2c baking soda: alkalizes, absorbs heavy metals, exfoliates and soothes skin - creates silky water!

  • 2 drops doTERRA Peppermint (highest in the constituent menthol) for cleansing and boosting circulation

  • 5 drops doTERRA Zendocrine Blend - read how it supports detoxification here.

[click here to purchase your first kit of medicinal grade essential oils]

Directions:

  • Scrape dead skin from heels and dry skin brush bottoms and top of feet.

  • Mix ingredients into large bowl/basin and then add warm/hot water…

  • Soak feet for 20 min while you listen to calming music or a meditation.

  • Dry off of your footsies.

  • Bonus: Apply Correct X to the heels and cuticles (this natural healing ointment is incredible)

  • Finish with doTERRA natural body butter and put in cozy socks - preferably ones that go up to your knees for extra cozy affect.

  • Crawl into bed. You’ll get the best night sleep you have in awhile, I promise.

Focus on the Energy of the Solution + An Audio Practice

energyofthesolution (1).png

What energy are you focusing on right now?

Take a deep breath and close your eyes.

Bring up the thing you are really struggling with right now.

Maybe it’s words you had with your boss, maybe it’s a relationship tension that hasn’t been brought to light, maybe it’s a friendship that isn’t feeling as good as it once did, maybe it’s something else.

Whatever YOUR THING is right now.. feel into it.

When you think about this thing are you focusing on the energy of lack, scarcity, frustration, victimization?

If it’s something you’re frustrated with yourself about are you focusing on how you never do what you say you’re going to do? or you feel like you’ve been stuck in the same loops with this thing for years?

If your thing involves someone else, are you focusing on how you wish the other person would be different? Understand you better? Act in a more loving way? Understand your point of view?

Now, feel whatever it is you’re feeling. And identify it.

Eg: “I feel victimized.” “I feel angry.” “I feel blame.” “I feel deflated.”

Ok, now focus on what your ideal outcome would be.

If you did the thing you’re trying to do. If the person you’re in conflict with didn’t trigger you badly.

Focus on the energy of the solution.

The cliche “where your focus goes, energy flows,” is real!

Yes, we have to identify our feelings, watch our minds, and know what we need, BUT if we just circle around the issue, we’ll NEVER come up with an inspired solutions, plus we’ll sit around feeling like shit.

So once you’ve identified the issue, start to bring your focus to the energy of the solution. What would it feel like? How would you be different? And you’ll have an inspired + divinely guided solution in no time.

Here’s a totally free 10 minute audio practice for you to use to go more deeply into this concept —> http://bit.ly/solutionmeditation

I would love to hear about what creative solutions came up for you after doing this practice! Email me at revolutionaryhelpdesk@gmail.com.

Revolutionary Lifestyle Podcast is LIVE

self leadership.png

ARE YOU A PODCAST LOVER??

The first episode of the revolutionary lifestyle podcast is LIVE today.

I’ve been interviewing some my favorite women who exemplify the essence of what a “revolutionary lifestyle” is for months now; so I’ve got so much good content coming your way.


What is a “revolutionary lifestyle” anyway? And what is this podcast about? It’s about following your heart; fueling yourself through innately sourced sourced worthiness and self love; it’s about taking care of our bodies, hearts, minds and souls because we want to. Because we deserve it.

It’s a lifestyle where we can have it all. Where we think in “both/and”; not “this or that”. It’s a lifestyle where we can have both; vitality and a thriving business; healthy relationships and work that we love; peace and quiet and be a leader in our field.

To love yourself and respect your desires in a world that profits off of your insecurities is a revolutionary act.

In Episode 1 of the revolutionary lifestyle podcast I tell my person story from self-hater to self-lover and how it led to create this brand and this lifestyle that I live. Give it a listen.

Tomorrow [on 9/24] the second episode with the revolutionary Nicole Meline will go live. In this episode we we talked about the concepts of alignment, power, and living "heart-ward" as well how telling the stories that scare us the most will help set each other free.

New episodes will drop every Tuesday morning.

Be sure to subscribe via the iTunes Podcast App so that you're always getting the freshest episode.

I can't tell you how much podcasting and talking with these incredible women lights me up. I know it will light you up too.

And we all need a little more LIGHT in our lives.

 
 
 

Self Leadership

self leadership.png

Have you thought about "Self Leadership"...


AKA the concept that: “Your example is the mic drop.”


The modern leader doesn’t just talk about what her followers should do.

She shows them by doing it.

The modern leader doesn’t create strict guidelines without any wiggle room and apply them, generally, to everyone.

She encourages diversity and creativity in all.

The modern leader isn’t a guru.


She shows you that you are your own guru.

The modern leader uses her example to lead and she realizes that every choice she makes has a ripple effect.

Self leadership is the new leadership.

Wanna lead yourself and learn what that even is?

Be The Change

stillness.png

Ghandi said, “Be the change you would like to see in the world.”

These words can almost be cliche now, but let’s really think about the deep, deep wisdom they hold.


I am feeling more and more convicted as I watch and observe the world around me that I MUST, with my actions, demonstrate what I would most like to see.


So many others have said it in different ways…

Glennon Doyle Melton said: "It doesn't matter what you say you think, it matters what we do.”


Don't know who said: "Practice what you preach." "Lead by example" "When we heal ourselves we heal the world." “Empowered people, empower people.” and on and on.
Just because it's been said before doesn't mean it shouldn't be said again.

There is something in me pushing up old stories, old patterns, old bullshit for me and I need the reminder to move inward.


The reminder to be honest with myself. And make sure that I am demonstrating what I would most like to see in the world, which is forever: More forgiveness. More understanding. More Love. More freedom.


It starts with me.

It starts with us: The gentle. The forgiving. The humble. The ones who know the darkness in the world is only a reflection of the darkness we harbor toward ourselves. When I can't forgive someone it's because I am not forgiving a part of myself. When there is judgement, there is contraction and love cannot flow unimpeded.

And love is the only thing that heals.


Real change comes when we give up the game of right and wrong. When we lay down our need to be validated and fall into each other's arms and know we are the same.


Come home all my parts. All my broken and haggard.

Come scream and cry and rage TOGETHER. Let us realize we are the fire of transformation.

Come re-member the love that flows through us. Come re-member who we are.

Come be forgiven.

Come have a seat at my table.

Come help me build a world where the collective pain is not fought against (no more separation) but accepted and only then, transcended.


Allow yourself to be still today and ask yourself what you really want to see in this world and go out and demonstrate just that.

The Definition of Multi-Passionate

multipassionate.png

Do you feel like you need more focus in your life? Like you need to stop being so “all over the place”?

I used to feel something akin to shame when it came to all my interests, all my starts and stops, the way I would be SO into something and then totally loose interest soon afterwards.

I’ve been known to go DEEP into a diet; a philosophy, a spiritual practice; read all the books, research it all, talk about it non stop, get everyone to do it with me; only to move on to the next thing a few weeks later. I used to think there was something wrong with me.

But now.. I LOVE this aspect of myself. I love how I collect knowledge, practices, letters after my name, healing modalities, knowledge on random facts about the human body.. I take exactly what I need and then exactly when I’m ready, move on to what excites me next.

I am maybe one of the fastest processors you’ve ever met. I always to with my gut. And now I totally trust in my “learn as I go” process.

If you’ve been following along; you know that I write, I coach, I mentor, I educate about + sell essential oils with dōTERRA, I’m a podcaster.. and now... a real estate investor.

This actually isn’t totally new; my husband and I have been dabbling in real estate for over 5 years. But we’ve recently completed a big project converting a couple houses in Missoula, MT into Airbnbs and long term rental units.


If I hadn’t let myself be who I am and be interested in growing wealth and expanding influence, or if I was worried that being a “landlord” didn’t fit into my health and wellness profile; I wouldn’t have gotten this amazing opportunity to use my creativity to build out these beautiful spaces.


When you play to your strengths, believe in your innate natural talents, and trust the pull of your heart; you’ll go far.

Be more like you, everyday, no matter if it makes sense or not; it’s the right direction.


This is my story; of always choosing to let myself dream big and create what my soul desires. Check out the instagram account @sanctuarymt to follow along with this new(ish) venture of my husband and I, and to even book your stay...

What if all the rules were off?

bodylove.png

What if all the rules were off?

No more required kale.

No more required vitamins.

No more guilt because you didn’t exercise

No more obsessive thoughts about your thighs or your stomach

No more to do lists (that only make you feel bad the next day when you fail to follow through).

No more rules about the way your body should fit into denim, spandex, and cloth.

No more worrying about the fact that your skin isn’t flawlessly smooth

No more hiding your tears when they start to flow in public (or in private)

No more shame around the size of your arms

No more looking at your face and wishing it was more symmetrical

No more looking at your lips and wishing they were more full

No more not wearing bright colored yoga pants because your cellulite might show

No more denying who you are right now

Are you ready to get lost in the pull?

To get lost in the depths of your soul?

How can you go deeper?

My heart has been whispering me secrets for so long,

leading me along so lovingly; so gently.

How could I have not heard?

How could I have not listened?

Us humans are funny beings

Heads down

Obsessively involved in the upkeep of our own suffering

But the voice telling us to look up is there; always.

Softly reminding us with the joy bubbling up inside, if we would only pay attention NOW.

Where is joy trying to bubble up?

It calls our attention, humbly, with flowers blooming, with sun shining, with grasses waving, with arms outreaching, with rain falling, with dogs wagging their tails at us, with laughter.

The under current of magic and mystery that pervades every moment.

Every thing.

This voice lets me know that there has been no mistake.

There is nothing to be done, to be accomplished, to be gotten

There is nothing I need to do to be more me.

I am me.

You are you.

What a blessing


Ambition is Boring

ambitionisboring.png

Here’s a mindset shift for you: Ambition is boring.

I’ll elaborate, of course.


Ambition is this idea that if we know what we want, how to get it ...if we just put our minds to it.. we can “make” it happen, no matter what it costs us.

That’s a boring; nose-to-grind-stone; patriarchal; old, story.

I’m done with the ego-driven; “hustle” and “productivity equals worth” paradigm. This idea that our success in life has ANYTHING to do with the quality of person we are.

You are worthy, no matter what type of car you drive or position at work you hold or how lazy or hard-working you are.

The seed of truth in this old paradigm is that you must DECIDE to let yourself want to what you want. Free will means you get to choose where you place your focus. But, what I’ve found, is that being super attached to a situation having a specific outcome leaves no room for things like wonder; delight; magic. Plus, it can create a whole lot of suffering when things don’t go as planned [they never do].

Life is a conversation.

it’s a give-take between you and the wonderful world. You’ll NEVER know what the *best* outcome could be. And by thinking you do; you shut down all creativity and openness. You forget to enjoy what is going on RIGHT NOW.

A true life’s work shouldn’t be driven by the sterilized, unforgiving drive of ambition. That’s a recipe for burnout and a life void of flow.

A true life’s work should morph and shift and be non linear.. but something you show up for each day with an intention to stay open to the highest good and the highest possibility.

So go out there and do what you love and stay open to it happening in a way that’s better than you could have ever imagined.

I’m with you.

What to Do When You're Overwhelmed

overwhelm.png

Do you ever feel overwhelmed?

Like, you look out over your day, the upcoming week and just have no idea how you're supposed to 'get it all done'?

What about feeling like if one more person asks you to do one more thing you might explode?

Overwhelm is THING these days.

Most people I talk to at my workshops, in my mentoring calls, and in my coaching sessions tell they feel burnt out, overwhelmed and at the end of their ropes when it comes to the thought of changing or adding one more thing to their to-do list.

The busyness issue is real.

Personally, I refuse to be “busy”. It feels disempowering. I decide where, why, when and how I do things, and that’s based on my priorities. When I feel overwhelmed I know that that is an indication that my priorities aren't clear. The overwhelm feeling is the indicator to me that I need to check in with what's really important to me.

One of the biggest hold ups with the people that I talk to is they feel like they CAN'T take things off their plate. Or they feel like they MUST do it all. Or they don't slow down enough to even think about what could be removed. They're just constantly reacting to everything. They feel totally powerless and are just reacting to one person's request after another.

So here's my four tips for when you're feeling overwhelmed to claim your power and get your priorities clear again.

1. Become really, really hard to get a hold of for at least one day (maybe more days).

This means: no social media, no texting, no phone calls, no listening to other people's demands on your time. Part of why we might feel overwhelmed is that we are putting other people's needs before our own. That is a recipe for burn out. So just for one day; become really, really hard to get ahold of. Maybe you camp out in a coffee shop getting the stuff that YOU need to get done, done. Maybe you go to the spa and treat yo' self. Maybe you just take a day to be completely disconnected at home; a "sick" day if you will. But take a day, or four where you're focusing on YOU.

2. Get in the habit of using a planner.

If you don't use an online calendar of some sort, it's time to bite the bullet and just do it. Seriously. One reason why people get stuck in the overwhelm state is because they don't have systems. Their poor brains are trying to keep track of everything. Google calendar is my tool of choice (I LIVE by my calendar) but there are others like iCal or Outlook, but pick one, and move all your appointments, work meetings, personal coffee dates, EVERYTHING to it. I’m strongly recommending an online calendaring system because you can create reminders, recurring events, and access it from your phone, your computer or your iPad, so you’ll never be without it. Yes, it will take a little bit of learning how to use on the front end, but you will be so happy you did.

3. Have medicinal grade essential oils diffusing around you as much as possible.

There's this almost magical effect having pure medicinal grade essential oils diffusing around you, and that is that they calm your nervous system, allow you to focus, and help you remember the world is not ending if you don't get your email inbox cleared out. We can use essential oils to help motivate us, to help cheer us up, or to give us a sense of reassuring peace. They can ground up and help us remember to breathe. They boost our immune system, they support our organs, and so much more. They are truly one of the BEST tools we have for our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. Use them! If you're in Montana, check out my live upcoming classes below or you're always welcome to book a complimentary one on one medicinal essential oils session with me here: http://bit.ly/freeoilsconsult

4. Ask yourself what is really important to you.

This piggy backs on the priorities aspect of overwhelm I talked about earlier. But knowing what you TRULY value in life is of utmost importance when we're talking about living a life that feels fulfilling. It's easy to get swept up in the wave of watching what other people are doing and feeling like we must do more or be different, or feeling like you have to go the extra mile for work, or adding IN a new exercise routine without taking anything else OUT of your already overloaded life. But what do YOU actually value? What do YOU actually want to do with your time in the day? Maybe you've been pushing yourself super hard at work because you think you should want to make a lot of money, but really you value cozy time at home with your family. Maybe you've been driving your kids all over the state to soccer tournaments, but your values really don't align with spending lots of time at practices and games? Get REAL with yourself here. What is really important to you?


What to do with Worry

worryblog.png

Are you a worrier? 

Do you find yourself posing hypothetical situations of doom and gloom in your head all day long? 

Maybe you’re not that extreme, but you find yourself thinking about the future in a way that takes away from your present tense experience and brings down your overall “vibe” more often than you’d like?

I teach classes about health and wellness all over the world and the most common thing people tell me they suffer from is…. anxiety, which is really just another name for worry. 


Sometimes we feel like worrying is a necessary part of life. If we didn’t worry, how would we prepare ourselves for all the possible terrible outcomes of any given situation? 

If we didn’t worry, we might get caught “off guard”.. which would be the worst, right?

I’ll let you in on a little secret, worrying steals our joy. In fact, I am going to argue that worry is actually a form of self harm.

We worry when something good is happening. We worry when something bad is happening. We worry when nothing is happening. We take on other people’s worry. And without intentionally choosing to focus on what is going well, over and over again, we are literally putting ourselves in a position where we could spend our lives not enjoying anything to its fullest, which would be a complete and utter shame. 

Research has found we tend to think “good” things happening to us will make us happier than they actually do and that “bad” things happening to us will make us sadder than they actually do. This is to say; it truly is all about our perspective and how we see the world. Not about what actually happens to us.


Ok, so are you ready to intentionally choose a new perspective the next time you worry or experience anxiety? 

Are you willing to make your feelings of worry or anxiety be the alert in your own mind that it is time to choose a new thought? 

Here’s a practice that I find very useful when I’m dealing with worry or anxiety: 

  • Notice yourself worrying about something. 

  • Let go of the worry-thoughts, shifting your focus away from them

  • Wonder: What positive new thing is trying to come into being? 

  • Notice a body feeling (not a thought or an idea) of where that positive new thing is trying to come through. 

  • Open your focus to feel that body feeling deeply.

  • Let yourself feel it deeply for as long as you possibly can

  • Later, you will get an actual idea of how this new positive thing is trying to come through.

How this works in practice: 

  • I’m walking down the street on a Saturday afternoon. I pass a clothing store where I have bought some fabulous pieces of clothing over the years. About fifteen seconds later I notice some worrying thoughts about money. Specifically, the worry-thoughts are about whether we have enough money to do all the marketing for business I’m planning on doing. 

  • I notice the worry-thoughts and let them go, just dropping them mid-thought without pursuing them. (Meditation helps with this aspect, as it trains you to see your thoughts but not following them.)

  • I wonder what positive thought is trying to come through. 

  • I feel a pleasant sensation in my throat. 

  • As I walk along, I let myself feel it thoroughly, savoring the pleasant sensation. 

  • A few minutes later, getting into my car, the insight occurs to me that seeing the clothes in the window triggered a wave of guilt about the level of abundance my husband and I enjoy, compared with other members of our family. Seeing the clothing also sparked a feeling of how much I love and appreciate my husband, and how much he doesn’t balk or give me criticism for my love of beautiful material things. I sit in my car for a few moments before turning on the engine, letting myself enjoy the feelings of how much I love and appreciate my husband, and how much I enjoy the prosperity we’ve created in our lives. I realize there is not physical object that could express those feelings. They exist in the nonmaterial world, in the feeling of flowing connection between us. 

  • I pick up my phone and call Sean. He’s out doing errands too, and it turns out he’s two blocks away from where I’m sitting in the car. I tell him the sequence I just experienced from the glance in the window to the worry-thoughts to the delicious moment of letting myself feel the overflow of love and appreciation for him. I say, “Let’s make sure we take more time to celebrate what we have.” 

  • He agrees and I head home.

  • I create more good feelings, feelings of overflow, abundance, and gratitude, RIGHT NOW, and not only that, I created these feelings because of the worry-thoughts. Because they were the perfect impetus to remind myself how much I have. I used the worry-thoughts as a jumping off point.

How to Build Endurance

Endurance.. normally we think of this as an athletic endeavor.

However, this week on “revolutionary lifestyle TV” I talk about why building emotional, mental and spiritual endurance is one of the most valuable undertakings of our life. So go ahead and give the little 7 min #clarawisdom clip a watch.

 
 

Self Care: A Definition

selfcare.png

SELF CARE: A DEFINITION.

Self care = sovereignty. Sovereignty is defined as “supreme power or authority” or “a self-governing state”. Self care means you (and only you) are the ruler of your world.

Self care is taking the power back from social media, technology and other peoples’ demands on our time.

Self care is realizing we need to protect our own inner resources.

Self care is not allowing someone else’s ideas about what we need to look like affect our internal measure of worth.

Self care is not responding to messages, emails or texts that demand us to put ourselves on someone else’s timeline; responding all day instead of proactively spending our time intentionally building what we want to build, doing what we want to do.


Self care is making a stand to speak up from a place of love when we’ve been offended, downplayed or made to feel unimportant. Self care is to take up space even if it makes us super uncomfortable and we run the risk of not seeming “nice”.

Self care is respecting our limits + our boundaries, but also knowing that we’ve got to push the edges of our comfort zone if we want to keep life interesting + we want to keep growing.

Self care is allowing the paradox: we must be all-accepting and all-loving of ourselves AND ALSO expect so much more for ourselves.

Self care is my JAM!

If you feel like your self care game is lacking and you’re not sure how to go about rectifying it, book a self love clarify call with me. Book it here: https://form.jotform.co/72645293608867

Only Make High Vibration Commitments

highvibe.png

What are you saying “yes,” to, when you actually want to say, “NO.”?

Do you feel sapped of energy?

Feeling like you’re trying so hard to do what’s “right” and make people like you and keep all your ducks in a row? But at the end of the day you just kind of feel dried up?

Do you say “yes” to things you really would love to say “NO!” to?

This has been a big part of my work lately is realizing that even though, as a person with high energy, high efficiency, high organization and high capability, I could make a lot of commitments and do a decent job at fulfilling all of them, but… when they are low vibe commitments, eg commitments I don’t want to do, they start to weigh me down.

Imagine if you only said “YES!” + committed to things that excited you in an expansive way. Imagine if you didn’t feel like you never had enough time. Imagine if you just simply said “NO.” to things that didn’t light you up? Imagine if before you said “yes” to something you asked yourself, “Do I actually want to do this?”

Where would you be? What would life feel like?

I’ve been asking myself these questions lately and what is coming is a lightness I have never felt before. I release of guilt. A greater and stronger channel to my highest self and what I was put on this Earth to do. If I’m going to do that work, then I better save ALL my potency for it.

Don’t water yourself down.

Only make high vibration commitments.

Commitments that excite you. Commitments that expand you. Commitments that scare you in a way that makes you feel the shifting of new horizons taking shape. Commitments that make you more YOU.

I’m with you.

What Surrender Actually Looks Like...

THE REAL MEANING OF SURRENDER
.
Have you ever felt like you wanted to “give up”?
.
Have you ever had a goal? A goal that you really, really, really wanted but the time was closing in + it looked like you wouldn’t reach that goal?
.
Have you ever felt like you failed?
.
I have. I have “failed” so many times, I could never go through them all in this little Instagram caption.
.
I have failed in ways that would make you put your hand to your heart + cock your head + say “awwwww.. 😭😭.” I have failed in ways that would make your heart ache.
.
But this is where surrender comes in.
.
When we have an idea about what you really, really want + we think we understand how to get there + then it becomes apparent that the way we thought we would get there will not work; we can call that failure.
.
Or.
.
We can surrender.
.
Surrender to the bigger plan.
.
Surrender to the guidance being offered to us every moment.
.
Surrender the attachment to “our way”.. + trust that there is another more beautiful way, if only we let go.
.
“Letting go” + “surrendering” doesn’t mean to “give up”, in fact, I’ve done some of my hardest, most difficult work only after I’ve surrendered my ideas about the way things “SHOULD LOOK” or “SHOULD BE.”
.
When you truly surrender your path + your single perception of the what you think would be the greatest outcome then you O P E N yourself up to MORE possibilities. The things you could do in the moment expand. You are giving yourself more options.
.
Surrendering doesn’t mean stopping + doing nothing + acquiescing to what’s happening.. it means asking “I believe in miracles.. so if there was ONE MORE THING I could do.. what would that be?”
.
And then letting go of the idea that you know the best way.
.
Surrender today, my loves, AND keep going for what you want.
.
I’m with you. 💗




You are Gold, Baby. Solid Gold.

Myth: I am not good enough.

Magic: I am a magnificent being in the process of becoming more magnificent.

This empowering truth runs through all the world’s great traditions. If you study what the founders + mystics of those traditions taught, you will find that they highlight our innate worth rather than reinforce our weakness. They celebrate our inner fire rather than focus on the threat of hell fire.

The truth is, at your core, you are GOLD. Anything you’ve done, failed at, built stories around is the MUD.

And just like mud covering up solid gold, the stories don’t change the value of the gold. It might make it hard to see at times. It might get confusing + messy + deep.. but the gold at your core doesn’t change.

Your mistakes are not who you are.

Your story is not who you are.

Remember you are gold baby, solid gold.

I’m with you.
