Just some things I have been holding on to. Sharing for my #hystersisters ❤️ This hurts more than anything I’ve ever gone through. As much as I’d like to wake up from this nightmare, I never will. Thankfully God heals ❤️ #Jesuslovesyou #Hisplansaregreater #trustHim #godgivesandtakesaway #infertility #iamhealing #adenomyosis
A friend of ours in India just recently told us how he cured his lower back disc by eating the Moringa drumstick 🌿in a soup, regularly for three months, so I had to post about it. I had an idea about some of the benefits of Moringa from using it regularly in its powder form, however, I didn’t expect that this wild, miracle plant is somewhat of a druid’s magic potion ingredient. 🌿 . . ✨ Moringa Oleifera or also called Drumstick in Tamil is a “Miracle Tree”. It is a plant with innumerable benefits. It can be used for diverse usage- from healthy hair to healthy heart. Interestingly, this miracle plant can grow in the wild, without effort. It has remarkable therapeutic and healing properties which can greatly benefit an individual. The plant has been used for ages to heal several health problems. . . Moringa 🌿is a treasure house of all essential nutrients that are needed to improve the immunity. Vitamins and minerals in Moringa are known to be very effective in protecting us from flues, infections and other common health problems. . . Some of Moringa’s benefits are treating Asthma, Anemia, Arthritis as well as Cancer because it fights carcinogenic toxins. It also helps in treating Constipation, Diabetes, Epilepsy and head aches (ethanol extract of moringa oleifera will treat epileptic conditions), Stomach pain (gastritis), High blood pressure, Kidney stones, Thyroid disorders, Infections and inflammations because of its antioxidant properties. . . Note though that Moringa MUST be avoided by pregnant and breastfeeding women. . Guess hubby is having Moringa soup tonight!🍵💚 . PS: Moringa can be consumed in powder form, as a herb that can be added to an omelette, or its drumsticks roots can be cooked in soups or stews. . . #moringa #moringaoleifera #moringapowder #moringapower #moringabenefits #superfood #healthydiet #exploring #exploringfood #foodasmedicine #foodheals #foodforfuel #foodforlife #foodforsoul #autoimmunelife #healingmybody #mybodyishealing #iamhealing #lupus #lupuslife #lupuswarrior #lupusfighter #healinghippsy
Does your attempt at manifesting feel forced? It's not so much about achieving & attaining. That's all attachment...attachment to an outcome, a goal, the version of ourselves that we wish to become. True manifesting is not abut holding onto an outcome, its about creating and holding a space for it, inviting it in. Release old patterns & assumptions and allow the new to naturally unfold. #manifesting #loa #manifest #allow #letitbe #letitgo #trustyourself #beyourownguru #iamhealing #mindbodybalance #mindbodyhealing #beyou #expansion #healing #mindbodymedicine #mindbodysoul #mindbodyspirit #bethehealer #youareguided #youarewhole
sunday mornings with @cassandra_unfiltered: art therapy 💜🎨 “this is my body, the only thing that i own entirely, and it will carry me to greatness somehow” 💪🏻 #edrecovery #edwarrior #anorexiarecovery #bodypositivity #bodiposi #selflove #loveyourselffirst #iamhealing #recoveryisworthit #arttherapy
This Body of Mine. This is the first time in two weeks that I’m able to eat something and not suffer with terrible cramps after. I’m so confused by my body. I eat relatively well, practice yoga asana regularly and try to maintain a happy outlook as much as I can, and yet illness continues to find my abdominal region, landing me in Hospital Casualty wards. This is my sensitivity, my soul ears, receiving messages from my Self to my self. Except I can’t listen or hear or understand Her messages. And so my body suffers... It has been debilitating, knocking all energy out of me, making me rest. Thank heavens my friend Nicole came out from Australia to stay with me just in time to give me care. I love how the universe works, sending me a professional nurse just as my body was shutting down. Your visit didn’t turn out as intended @petschnicole, but I am grateful for every moment spent with you. Thank you for the hospital drives and grocery shopping and cleaning and cooking and coparenting and caregiving and reassurances and most of all, for your Love. I may not know yet what my Hara is trying to tell me, but I will continue to listen, And give myself the care I need. I will learn the language of my Self, and stop this insanity. I want to know how to work with Her, so She can use me as her vessel. #SoulCare #TheBodyTalks #Hara #IllnessAsSoulGrowth #IAmHealing CapeTownSunset #ILoveCapeTown

Good morning loves! I am definitely on and about this journey— this journey of healing, this journey of being the love and this journey to wholeness. ✨ Already I’ve been engaging in dialogue with folks in person and through the screen about all the stuff. Thank you to all who have reached out and/or listened in. And thank you to those who are getting ready to join the conversation. 🙏🏿 On this episode I’m talking trust and/or despite trauma. Trust is my word this year, so more reflections on that to come. Peep the #linkinbio to listen in. #lovetoall #loveheals #trustingself
This message is for myself before anyone else! A lot of times when I’m in pain I feel like I’m a burden to others, and the constant chronic pains that are a frequent routine in my case with lupus and fybromaelgia make it somewhat unbearable for me to be in crowds. All of a sudden, I get the feeling that I need to apologize for being in pain because I’m delaying the pack or I’m unable to join them or be around their humor circles. I used to be the one in control, taking care of everyone and taking the lead. Now I feel like I’ve lost being in charge and that I need to be taken care of. Then I realized how blessed and grateful I am for being surrounded with love and care from all directions.💕 Nevertheless, its these moments of weakness that remind me how strong I am and how I can move forward, always - no regrets ... and no apologies for my pain either! A little pampering by my husband doesn’t do any harm though ;) 💕 . . #pain #chronicpain #chronicpainsucks #lupusmyass #lupusshit #lupus #autoimmunedisease #silentdisease #lupusfree #iamhealing #mybodyishealing #iamlupusfree #iamhealthy #iamhappy #healing #love #blessed #healinghippsy
Everyday we make choices. We can make the choice to be in a state of love, or we can choose to be in a state of anger. Everyday it is my intention to be in a state of love, and if I feel I am not, I ask for loving guidance on how I can be. Although this may seem very unnatural to most (myself included) I realized being in a state of love, is our natural state, we just have forgotten. All of us still have an inner child within us, waiting to show us our natural state again, one just needs to listen to the voice within. 🙏💓 #ichoose #ichooselove #iamlove #iamlight #iamhealing #iamready #loveyou #love #loveyourself #selfkindness #bekind #belove #belight #bethechange #doitforthechildern #blessed #greatful #consciousness #compassion #consiousdreamer #leadalifeoflove #spirit #spiritguides #spirit #starseed
I AM 💖 LOVE I AM back !!! it’s been a massive two weeks for me SEEING WHATS REAL and observing how I have fallen into old patterns. Patterns of pleasing others and putting others before my own needs. #I am sooo big on self love and self care and you know what ... for the last 6months or more I have not been loving myself or looking after myself. I have been DOING way to much and putting myself and family on he back burner! But one thing I am good at Friends, and that’s owning my shit! 💩🤭😂 So as I own it , I am changing it... Today I fed my soul, started yesterday when I brought the most amazing healing piece of jewellery for my self ( please come and check our new range out) ☺️ And then yoga today and then off to an amazing treatment with @katz8518 ! I cannot explain how good I feel right now..had a amazing lunch then swim with my fav person .. ME💖 Today this moment I love all that I am and look forward to getting back to ME and my daily rituals, I look forward to placing boundaries were needed and saying NO more often to others and YES to myself...

I woke up today with great intentions. “I’m going to be positive no matter how I’m feeling,” is what I told myself. And then frustration kicked in. I felt overwhelmed with pain and sadness, although I did my best to hide it because I didn’t want my daughter to feel it. This healing process is not easy. You think you’re just about there, and then it hits you. You feel guilty for feeling anger, frustration, and sadness because everything around you tells you you need to be positive and happy all the time no matter what. It’s like we’re programmed to ignore our feelings, at least the negative ones anyway. This causes so many problems in my opinion. It just opens up the door for more issues because you haven’t taken time to breathe and allow yourself to feel those negative things and ask yourself why you feel that way. When we do this it pretty much defeats the healing process. So today I chose to feel those negative emotions and dive in and ask myself why I felt that way. How can I deal with this so it doesn’t linger on and grow into something unmanageable? I chose to love myself. I choose to be WHOLE.
a good tuesday| i’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be transparent, and the shame i still feel surrounding social media. how strange it is to shout things into the void. but here i am. shaking. trying to make my voice heard. a conversation with a friend reminded me that i demand, not ask, that the people in my life are transparent with with me. it’s never been a question, just a way of existing. and as a friend, i promise to hold you forever in the light. as you all do the same for me. • #iamhealing #iamgrowing #recovery

Tonight for dinner I made sweet potato shepherds pie, curtesy of @therealfoodrds! I used pre-chopped onion, carrots, peppers, and mushrooms to speed up the process. I also used 1/2 lb ground turkey to limit the fat content, and added onion and garlic powder because no dish of mine is complete without it 😂. Check out their page for more recipes!
There’s nothing more refreshing than the fresh juice from a fresh fruit, and one of my favorites is coconut water 🥥🌴. Apart from the energizing kick I get when I drink it, coconut water comes with a wealth of health benefits.🙌 The water from coconuts has been consumed for centuries in tropical countries and is believed to treat a variety of health-related 💚ailments. In Sanskrit, coconuts are called “kalpa vriksha,” which means “tree which gives all that is necessary for living.” 🌴 In certain emergency situations, it has been used for IV hydration due to its high electrolyte content and the fact that it’s sterile if used directly from the inside of the coconut. People all over the world enjoy it for its multiple benefits and sweet taste. Other health benefits of coconut 🥥 water include: * Lowers blood pressure * Weight loss * Increases athletic performance * Boosts energy * Lowers cholesterol * Reduces cellulite * Relaxes muscle tension 🥥 water is a safe, healthy beverage for most people. Ps: ❌If anyone has kidney issues, they should limit the consumption of coconut water as it is high in potassium . My mouth is already watering 😋 as I’m writing about it. . . #coconut #coconutwater #coconuttree #coconutbenefits #coconutlove #coconutlife #fresh #freshfood #freshfruits #eatfresh #foodforheath #foodforsoul #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #lupus #lupuswarrior #lupusfighter #lupusfree #iamhealing #mybodyishealing #healinghippsy #goa #anjuna #bardez #germanbakery #goa #missinggoa
Feeling guilty about not doing something all the time is no way to live our days. You are doing your best. You are allowed to rest and allowed to take your time... Work hard but not to exhaustion or to the point it affects physical and mental health. You are doing your best and no one can ask for anything more. You are enough. #worthy #iamenough #rest
I tried the boil then broil technique for sweet potato wedges and it worked great! I paired them with stone ground mustard/ maple syrup sauce and it was delish 👏
TBT our enjoyable Super Blue Blood Moon night hike a couple weeks ago. So ready for another "warm" weather pop to hit so I can rattle my dusty joints out of the house again. The treadmill is not nearly as fun as a hike or stroll outdoors. Are my fellow spoonies over winter like I am?

This is the truth of Sisterhood. And it can only be described when experienced at its fullest. Find your tribe. Sit with your circle of conscious sisters for spirituality, health, and emotional support. You have a sister in me. #yougotme #igotyou #sisterhood #conscioussisterhood
I have made it my goal to get in 10k steps a day. And since I'm a stay at home mom that can be hard so I've started walking on the river paths. I've gone to a different path every day. So far this was my favorite.
Having to unlearn everything I learned as a child has been challenging to say the least. I am so thankful for the strength that was buried under years of abuse. Many don’t know my story but trust I’ve had to unlearn a bunch of ugly shit. I’m determined to allow love to always lead me. I am determined to learn a new way of being! I thank the Creator for showing me how to love myself!!! ❤️😍 #lovedoeswin #iamhealing #iamgrowing #iamlearning #iamunlearning #iamstrong #imgonnakeepgoing #motivation #love #peace #conciousness
Show the world some love every day. 💙🌏🌎🌍💚 I choose to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not to compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinion of others. I choose to be me. -Miranda Marrott #protectmotherearth #choice #truth #freewill #world #healingtheworld #lovetheworld #innerchild #iamhealing #consiousdreamer #universe #consciousness #revolutiononconsciousness #ibelieveinthegoodthingscoming #ibelieveinme #thislifeissacred #thisismylife #wearecreators #spirit

Up n' at 'em before dawn so I can keep worrying about my impending procedure this afternoon. I'm getting a punch biopsy to look for signs of small fiber neuropathy. My doc will numb the areas of my leg where he'll take the samples, so it shouldn't be too painful. What I'm nervous about is the aftermath. Skin healing after even a tiny scrape is a huge issue from my Ehlers-Danlos, so I'm very nervous about how much pain I'll have in store as my skin comes back together. And how long that healing will take. Case in point, the last time I scratched my hand -- no broken skin, no bleeding, just a lame little scratch -- it took two months to heal, and not before cracking into a full-blown cut a few times. Just one of the cute effects of this disease! Any of my fellow EDSers have any words of warning about the punch biopsy? I'll be pre-medicating before the appointment with all my mast cells meds plus Benedryl just in case my immune system wants to rear up about the lidocaine. 😷💊🔬 #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobility #ehlersdanlos #eds #zebrastrong #edsstrong #edswarrior #edszebra #zebrawarrior #edsawareness #mastcelldisease #mastcellactivationdisorder #mcas #mastcelldrama #foodallergy #foodallergies #chronictenacity #spoonie #chronicpain #hiddendisease #invisibleillnessawareness #illness #raredisease #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicallyill #spoonielife #chronicillnesswarrior #butyoudontlooksick #chronicfatigue
So... 2.5 weeks ago this happened. To make a longer story short, I felt like Jesus was saying to go to Bethel. So even though I shouldn’t have been able to do it, I hopped on a plane (well not really, I was wheeled in my wheelchair to the plane door), flew to SFO, partially attended an Iris conference ❤️ and DROVE 3.5 hours up in Redding... You guys this should not have been possible. But I felt such peace about going. Jesus encountered me at the healing rooms; I felt something lift off me which had been on me probably for a few years, and it has been gone ever since! I didn’t feel much manifestation of physical healing at the time, but the next day I thought I would try going to the 8am service as it was probably quieter. I hadn’t been to a church service for years because the noise and vibrations would send me into fight/flight, shaking/crying/meltdowns. I hardly even listened to music on my phone, and had to watch movies on low with subtitles. Well I slept in and missed the 8am but just felt like I had to get to the 10.30. I kinda thought I wouldn’t because I had a long drive back to SF and wanted to get going. So I started cooking breakfast but kept feeling this urgency to go to church. I couldn’t go thought because my salmon was cooking! My hosts came in the door and I told them about it, so they offered to watch my salmon and I drove to Bethel... Arriving in the parking lot, I could already feel the vibrations from the bass but still SO felt I was supposed to be in there. So I walked in... and was fine. For the first time in years I was able to enjoy worship without PTSD like symptoms and even though I still couldn’t stand for too long, it was still just incredible... to finally be in the presence of God again in corporate worship ❤️😭 He chases me down, fights ‘til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine. 😭 #iamhealing #hopeinGod #peoplehopetribe #hopeismyanchor #hopeofglory #cfsme #lyme #lymewarrior #sensoryissues #chronicillness #invisibleillness #spoonie #bethelchurchredding #bethelhealingrooms #bethelchurch #Jesus #recklesslove
I’ve been trying to cut down on meat in my diet to limit my fat intake, but I also want to be sure that my meals are filling and satisfying for me. With that in mind I tried potato latkes, and they were definitely filling plus they weren’t too difficult to make! And even better they include no eggs or gluten! See recipe below: • 2 potatoes • 1.5 tbsp potato starch • 2 tbsp coconut flour • 2 tbsp flax meal • 1/2 tsp garlic powder • 1/2 tsp onion powder • 1/2 tsp sea salt • 2 tsp olive oil

I went for grocery shopping today and the highest priority on my shopping list was Swiss Chard 🍃for all its nutritional benefits in general, and for my case in particular. Swiss chard, has the ability to regulate blood sugar levels, prevent various types of cancer, improve digestion, boost the immune system, reduce fever and combat inflammation, lower blood pressure, prevent heart disease, increase bone strength and development, detoxify the body, and strengthen the functioning of the brain.💪 Swiss chard has powerful anti-inflammatory properties making it an ideal food for those who suffer with autoimmune disorders such as cardiomyopathy, fibromyalgia, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, lyme disease, and type 2 diabetes. Swiss Chard also contains a large number of phytonutrient antioxidants which have been shown to help protect the body from chronic illnesses such as heart disease, multiple sclerosis, amongst others. The nutritional benefits of swiss chard are most readily available when eaten raw or juiced. 🍃 Listen to your parents : ) and eat your greens!💚 #swisschard #swisschardleaves #swisschardbenefits #greenfood #greendiet #greenishealthy #eatgreen #eatmoregreen #eathealthy #foodforsoul #foodforlife #foodforhealth #chronicdiseases #autoimmunedisease #lupus #lupuswarrior #lupusfree #iamhealing #mybodyishealing #healinghippsy
Finding the humor in illness is cracking yourself up over making cuffs almost a foot long in the legs of your gigantic, one-size-fits-all scrubs when you're not quite 5'3". This fine attire was for my latest MRI. Still no lesions showing up in my brain or spine, so no MS to explain my falls. Back to the drawing board to decide what my mystery neurological disorder is. #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobility #ehlersdanlos #eds #zebrastrong #edsstrong #edswarrior #edszebra #zebrawarrior #edsawareness #mastcelldisease #mastcellactivationdisorder #mcas #mastcelldrama #foodallergy #foodallergies #chronictenacity #spoonie #chronicpain #hiddendisease #invisibleillnessawareness #illness #raredisease #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicallyill #spoonielife #chronicillnesswarrior #butyoudontlooksick #chronicfatigue
