My One Word is BREATHE

November 11, 2018

On my drive down to Lewes, I started listening to the Audible book Just Breath Mastering breathwork for success in life, Business and Beyond by Dan Brule. I have been drawn to this book for quite some time, and finally bought it and downloaded it.  Once I started listening to it, I felt that I had found the missing piece of a puzzle that I have been looking for to sum up in one word the direction that I was going in.   Let me paresis this by saying that I also just finished the book One Word by Jon Gordon who talks about focusing on one word for a year. The simple power of One Word is that it impacts all six dimensions of your life – mental, physical, emotional, relational, spiritual, and financial. He also has a book out called Life Word. Which I think that I found, I also think it may be the path that I am being called to and my life purpose. That word is BREATHE!

As I was driving down today, Breathe just fit the direction my life and business is going!!! The obvious one is the Laughter Yoga that I have been practicing and sharing since March 2014. Which is right after the time my chronic pain started and I was searching for Something/Anything to help navigate through the depression, anxiety, and pain that I was feeling in all pillars of my life.

October 2017, I became very interested in Essential Oils and Aromatherapy which I have seen work miracles in my life as well as my Aunt Janice’s life since we have been caregiving with her.  I also thought about other aspects of my life.

Looking into other aspects of my life, my stones that I have collected, rubbed, carried, worried with, meditated on, photographed, and wire wrapped. Stones have always brought me comfort in a very natural way. In a holistic kind of way.

I do not consider myself “New Age” and the practices that some new age cultures lend itself. I see myself more as a naturalist, maybe a little naturopathic. Enjoying what Nature has already provided us.

I also look at my hobbies, I have always enjoyed crafts. Since I was about five years of age and my Grandmother taught me how to do the chain stitch in crochet. I remember sitting very still and kind of be in a calm state, just doing the chain stitch with a whole skein of yarn which usually was long enough to wrap around the whole outside of the farm house thank I would rip it out and do it all over again.

I have done crafts ever since, it has morphed into different crafts. I use to do latch hook, counted cross stitch, needlepoint, of course crocheting, wire wrapping and now I am even weaving. I am guessing that while doing these crafts my breathe also changes and slowed down. Doing this kind of repetitive action can also put you into a different kind of state of mind. All those crafts brought a calmness, and repetitive action that was comforting and relaxing to me.

Growing up and even now, I find peace and relaxation as I explored nature. Growing up I had access to a large working farm with woods and a large stream running through it. I would love to  breathe in the smells of nature, play with the farm animals and watch the birds as they flew overhead.  I used to collect nature’s treasures such as old snake skins, turtle shells, leaves, and but especially stones. Moving to Delaware that exploration just moved to the beach and collecting sea glass, and beach stones and breathing the salt air and listening to the rhythm of the waves crash on the beach. I always tried to pattern my breathing to the waves.

Mark, who has been with me on countless photographing nature walks, has mentioned that he observes me in a kind of meditative thought when I have a camera in my hand. I find the noise in my head stops, my breathing slows down, and I look at the world through whatever lens, I just happen to have on my camera at that time.

I have noticed that my life, my store which reflects me, has been evolving especially in the last year. I am getting away from the “gifty” side and moving more into the nature holistic side.  When you walk in my shop people have said “it is very relaxing in here”.  I have soft piano music playing in the background, you see the beauty of nature in all the stones and sea glass all around and my wire wrapping. Many people gravitate toward the moving sand art pictures, Exotic Sands, and just stand there and watch it, commenting that it is very Zen like.  l will always be focusing on my wire wrapping and my photography, but as you walk in now also see doTerra Essential Oils as well the HempWorx Hemp CBD oils. I am looking forward to seeing where this new self-discovery and new word BREATHE take me.

Heavy metals in our bodies

A couple of weeks ago, I had two young ladies, one being a nurse, come into Sand N Stones and they were asking me about the CBD Oil that I sell. They wanted to know if there had been any studies on CBD oil and people who have heavy metal conditions. I could not answer the question.
They began telling me their stories with and the ailments that they had from heavy metals. We started talking back and forth, and I explained why turned to CBD Hemp Oil and what relief I am seeing from it.
They asked if I had ever been tested for heavy metals? I told them no. They told me if I wanted to be texted make sure I get the urine test, since that seems to be more accurate then the blood test.
I started doing some research in the internet.
This morning, I went to see my Rheumatologist. I asked him what he thought of heavy metals and their effects on our health? He asked me why I was inquiring about this, I told him that I have been experiencing some of the symptoms that can be associated with heavy metals. Aches and pains, brain fog, sad feelings, trouble sleeping, anxious feelings, and elevated blood pressure. I also explained to him being a jeweler I am always working with silver and gold. I also have several fillings that are made from metals.  He said that there has been scientific proof that heavy metals in our bodies do play a part on our health. He agreed to order the urine test.  We will see.
I was wondering if there were any essential oils that would help with the detoxification of heavy metals?
I came across this web page from Dr. Axe, who is a very respected individual in the Essential Oil world. Where he talks about heavy metals, the dangers, and how to do a detox.  I have found this all very interesting and planning to incorporate some of the heavy metal detox foods into my diet that Dr. Axe recommended regardless the results.
Here is a quiz that you can take that is very interesting. At the end of the quiz they are going to ask…. If you would like to discuss your case with Connie Fox, she is now offering a one-time 30 minute phone consultation for $90.00. I did not do the consultation, but the questions they ask made me really think.
I have read that Milk Thistle as a heavy metal detox but never really gave it another thought. That is something that I can easily take in a pill form once and awhile.
Here is a Youtube video that I found talking about all of the heavy metals that we are exposed to on a daily basis.

Essential Oils for Dogs and Cats

This information is copied from a doTERRA handout and was developed with Janet Roark, DVM

When used correctly, Essential oils can be beneficial for our pets and without negative side effects or unnatural additives.

** First Research the oil you’re using to know exactly how you should use it! Talk to a veterinarian that has experience using essential oils on animals.

Dilution Ratios:

In general, its best to start with a more diluted Essential Oil when introducing that topically to your pet. You can always increase the concentration if the desired effect is not reached., but it is difficult to remove an essential oil once it has already been absorbed.

As always each animal is unique that your pet may be more sensitive than others. Observe their behavior and they will tell you!

Here are some general guidelines to help you when starting out using essential oils topically with your pet.  (CO = Carrier Oil)  ( EO = Essential Oil)

  • Puppies under 8 Weeks & Cats:   CO 250 drops – 2 drop of EO
  • Dogs under 20 lbs & Elderly dogs: CO  85-100 drops – 1 drop of EO
  • Dogs over 20 lbs:  CO 50 drops – 1 drop of EO
  • Hot Oils: CO 100 drops – 1 drop of EO

TIP:  Coconut Oil is an exceptional carrier oil and beneficial for improving general health and digestion, prevention and treatment of yeast and fungal infections, disinfecting wounds, clarifying and calming skin allergies and dryness, reduces arthritis pain and ligament problems. It is also hydrating to the skin to add 1/4 Tbsp per every 10 lb of body weight twice daily in their food.

  • Diffusion
  • Spray into the air (usually diluted)
  • Direct inhalation: Put a drop of oil on your hands and allow the animal to inhale
  • On a cloth, cotton ball, or tissue near the animal or on its bedding
  • Hot Water/Steam: 1-2 drops of Essential Oil in hot water
  • Humidifier: be sure to use one that is safe to apply Essential Oils into
  • Fan /air filter Place a drop of oil on a cotton ball and insert into a fan near the animal or directly on the air filter in your home.

Internal:

Oils that indicate they are for internal use on the label may be given internally. It is generally not recommended that you give more that 1-2 drop internally at any one time.

  • 1-2 drops in a capsule with a carrier oil
  • Mix with food (Wet food works best)
  • Place a drop on your finger and wait until mostly dry, rub the residue on pets’ gums
  • 1 drop essential oil per 2 cups of drinking water (not recommended for cats)

In a natural toothpaste (not containing Xylitol) using 1 drop essential oil, 2 tablespoons of baking soda and enough water to make paste. Only use a dab of this to brush teeth to maintain oral hygiene.

Essential Oil Safety:

  • When diffusing, always allow the animal the ability to roam freely about the space (i.e.: keep door open). Allowing they to get away from the scent if they choose.
  • Use Only Therapeutic Grade essential oils
  • Always dilute essential oils with a carrier oil before applying topically. Dilute heavily at first and add oils in small increments. Observe your pet. Add more oils if needed.
  • Observe your pet’s behavior when using or diffusing essential oils. Discontinue use of an oil if your animal exhibits signs of distress, drools, squints, rubs their face, vocalizes, pants, has muscle tremors, starts shaking, vomits, has diarrhea, or has skin irritation following application of an oil.
  • Research your pets’ health status and medications they are taking currently
  • Do not use oils in, on or near your animals’ eyes, ears, nose or genitals. If you accidentally get some in their eyes, wipe eye with a tissue that has a few drop of carrier oil – Do Not flush with water
  • Use caution when utilizing essential oils on animals that are frail, have underlying health conditions, pregnant, nursing, young animals, and/or on certain medications or epileptic.
  • Use a water diffuser rather than one that pulls oils directly from the bottle
  • Don’t use essential oils at the some time as a topical medications, including dermal patches and topical flea and tick treatments.
  • Never use or give your pet any product containing Xylitol, including toothpaste or essential oil beadlets.
  • For dogs with long ears, don’t use essential oils on the tips of their ear, as the oil may get in their eyes if they shake their head.
