The weekend is coming to a close, but I wanted to share with you a little about what to expect from me moving forward. In the next week I'll be posting a VLOG explaining exactly what Mind. Body. Jesus. is all about. I'll be sharing more about our mission and you will be hearing much, much more from me in the coming days.
Below is our weekly schedule of daily social media posts, so make sure you like/follow my Facebook and Instagram pages to keep up-to-date! Here is a little background about why each day of the week is important for your overall health and well-being:
#MusicMonday: Bottom line, music heals. And we'll be talking more about how in the coming days. A few years ago I was certified in an energy practice called Cellular Expansion + Healing. The basis for this practice is that every single cell, all matter, holds a vibrational frequency. Those vibrational frequencies can be affected by our environment, our words, trauma, fear, negativity, and the like. Yet, we have the opportunity to also introduce healing frequencies through words and music. Consider church on Sunday. We worship through music. I stand there singing, focusing on how Great our God is, and a blanket of peace, love, and joy covers me. I feel a great healing overtake me. It doesn't matter the chaos going on in my life in that moment because it all fades away into the background and I'm focused on the very Presence that surrounds me. On #MusicModay I will be posting a song for you to take a few moments to close your eyes, let the lyrics sink into your heart, the healing vibrations enveloping your body, and your mind in total self-reflection. More on music and frequency therapy to come.
#TuesdaysTip: I will post a weekly health tip centered around mindfulness, nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, etc. It's all about promoting a healthy, balanced lifestyle. I promote "whole" healing in mind, body, and spirit. Without one, we can't have the others. It's all about small, simple changes to lay the groundwork for your health!
#WellnessWednesday: Wednesdays are about education! With knowledge comes power. I can't urge enough the importance to become your own health advocate. Nobody other than the God that created you knows your mind, body, and the state of your soul more than you. You hold the keys. You are in the driver's seat. It's time to get empowered and initiate the changes necessary to meet and exceed your goals. Never forget that you have the power of God within you! With Him, all things are possible!
#ThoughtfulThursday: Ever notice that natural high that follows a good deed from the purity of your heart? "A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed" (Proverbs 11:23). #ThoughtfulThursday is all about loving others as you love yourself. If we love others generously, help someone in need, give with the resources God has abundantly provided us with, it takes the focus off of the struggles that we face. It's no longer about "me"! And with that, comes refreshment. While #ThoughtfulThursday is not about boasting about our good deeds, let's share the fullness of God's goodness in return.
#FitnessFriday: I can't stress enough the importance of moving and using the bodies that we have been blessed with. Whether stretching, strengthening, or conditioning - all of it has great impact. It's about making a decision to take action. Let's release those healthy, happy, "feel good" endorphins. Let's strengthen your body so you feel confident to go out there and slay the day ahead. #FitnessFriday will promote exercise and bring you fitness tips, research, and inspiration.
#SelfCareSaturday: I'm a firm believer that we can't take care of others unless we first take care of ourselves. Boundaries - both physical and emotional - are essential to our health. Self-care is not about selfishness, it's about taking a critical time-out, scheduling a date with God, nourishing your mind, body, and soul, and loving yourself the way God loves you. Self-care is about restoration, grounding, and alignment. CRITICAL for your whole health.
#SoulSunday: "If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it" (Matthew 10:39). I can't tell you how liberating it is once you accept this principle into your life. When we realize that our lives are not about us, but about God, a huge burden is lifted. Once we surrender that our lives are in His control, the more ease the flow of our lives. We realize that He is the Author of our stories. He holds the beginning and the end. And all of it...every single moment...is to be used for His purposes. This fact also helped me to walk more confidently knowing that His power is within me. And He does all things for our ultimate good. #SoulSunday is all about worshiping Him -- His is love, His freedom, His grace, His healing, His wisdom, His goodness, His peace. It is He who is everything we need. May we honor our minds, bodies, and spirits knowing it is all a gift from the Artist that brought them to life.
May each day bring you new life, inspire you, motivate you, and bring you a great healing. A great new chapter awaits!
