Full Moon Intentions

I felt the energy in the depths of my stomach for at least 2 days. I knew June 20, 2016 was the summer solstice, a full moon, and strawberry moon which was spiritually powerful  validated by many. For me it’s a day I chose to release a long term habit that no longer served me and begin to really live authentically. After 20 years of this habit I have chosen to let it go so I can bring into my life more abundance and opportunities.

Full moons are known for creating changes in the atmosphere. The ocean becomes turbulent and people are believed to become more emotionally wild. They can bring people together from all walks of life to gather and dance or others may be solitude and focus on their own rituals and releasing ceremonies.

The night of June 20th I felt the subtle pull of energy and its connection to mother nature. I looked out at the ocean and I felt myself pulled into her depths as all of my worries and doubts flowed off me. I felt the moon slowly beginning its rise into the sky, even though it was cloudy I knew where she was. I offer my blessings to the universe for this experience of watching the rising moon from a balcony overlooking the beach.

On June 20th I set my intentions for my future, focused on what I valued most in life without for or judgement. For many years I have been hesitant about manifesting my goals because I wanted to be open to opportunities. I didn’t want to place my ideas in a box yet I’ve recently realized I was procrastinating because I feared what was next. So now that I’ve kicked this fear to the curb it’s time to rise up to my potential and glory as I share my healing gifts with others. I envision a life traveling from one place to another providing healing services and teaching stress release. I see a healing center with numerous spaces for respite and relaxation on a beach in another country.

This full moon was very special and I meditated on my wants and needs. I asked God for support and enlightenment which I feel within my body coursing throughout my veins yet subtle. I then ended my practice with gratitude for all that I have and all that I will receive at the right time. The day after the full moon I awoke to a cloudy day with rain justifying the cleansing process this world desperately needs to clear itself of hate, jealousy, and greed. I stand up to my calling to bring forth healing, compassion, and authenticity. I am now rising to the occasion God has set forth for me as I teach, share, and empower others and myself how to find balance towards health and happiness.

Whether you believe in the power of the full moon or not, I can guarantee you may have felt off these last few days. Perhaps angry, annoyed, odd, etc for no reason. That’s the power of the moon and now with the rain those feelings have washed away so you can be ready for a new day that you can create your reality.

Common spice reduces inflammation naturally

As a Health Coach, one of the most common complaints I hear from my clients and others is how their body feels bloated and uncomfortable. This is due to inflammation which is one of the leading causes of chronic diseases. One of the tell tale signs of inflammation si the infamous belly bloat. I began to research  for ways to naturally reduce inflammation and I came across a recipe (found below) for turmeric milk. Needless to say I liked it so much it has now become my go-to recipe and one I offer to my clients who mention the word inflammation.

Needless to say, those who put the effort into trying my suggestion have found incredible benefits within the first week they have used it. Below are two testimonials from clients who received the recipe.

Alex, “I started Turmeric Milk over a year ago and am amazed at how beneficial it has been to my digestive track. I have tried other things but nothing comes closer to giving me that cleansing feeling.”

Another client stated: “It stopped my diverticulitis symptoms. It’s a blessing to my health, thank you.”

The benefits of turmeric date back thousands of years and used often in recipes from India, Middle East, and Asia. Turmeric can be used in food for people and animals, facial, and even tie-dye recipes to name a few.


I found this great video on turmeric which discusses in greater detail the benefits of this amazing powder and various ways to use this. I personally use turmeric and black pepper daily to just about everything I heat up, especially rice, quinoa, fish/chicken, eggs, etc. I find it reduces my bloating and feelings of inflammation.

Turmeric* works best when added with a pinch of black pepper* and heated up with other spices for taste.

Add turmeric* to your shopping list now so you can use in most of your meals.
