Once you get to the Wise Woman stage, you realize you know stuff. You share it here and there as things come up for longevity has you understanding more. I had to write about an idea that you could perhaps get when you are younger.
I have less energy for hard things so energy management is important. You know you will check out at some point so what your doing here becomes more important. The question "How do you want to round this experience out?" becomes important. It is kind of a fun point of view. You have done enough to realize that you can have the things you want mostly. You've seen many do exceptional things. Your thoughts create your experience and your more aware of the collected thoughts and your own true thoughts.
With all this in mind, I offer my summation of what's important are what are you really doing? Not in terms of a job or career, but what are you offering the world? It has always been a question to me. I have loved all the work I have done as it has made a difference in the world on the health, organic, green and feminine movement. I have made impact. My energy has gone to really good things to me. It has been fun bringing in new ways and ideas about our very sacred body and divine spirit.
As I go forward, I will continue to put forth energy towards those things I want to share. I don't have the constraints of doing things for ideas or cultures. I do them because it feels good for my heart body and soul. It hasn't always made me tons of money but the richness I have lived is bountiful. I would offer to youth that consider how your heart sings as you do what you do. The joy of enjoying life is far greater than any material wealth you could gain. Gain your material wealth without sacrificing life. I know many would say without sacrifice you can't gain. I look at it that if you sacrifice, it should be the things that are not good for you anyway. They are not hard to sacrifice for they are crappy habits. So keep that in mind.
We are here, we have these layers of ideas, culture, genders, nationalities that all create belief systems. We mature by unloading or detangling these ideas from our own. The easiest way to do that is to find ways to enjoy yourself and do that. Your programming will come forward quickly. You can clear it easiest by going and enjoying yourself. It's like a rebirth of yourself. We change so much but in the end, age lets us know and express ourselves more authentically.
Somewhere we lost our birthright of being divine. We are to have fun while we are here. Yes it may be a school but all my schooling was fun. I still enjoy learning and keeping current in my expansion. I would say, as you get older the only thing you want to do is have fun. It isn't about retirement or work, it is about doing things you enjoy. Work can be a great joy. That joy pays you big through life. It pays daily.
You will have problems and challenges no matter what. So you might as well make what you do most of the day a joy for the most part. If you like it, than enjoy and have faith that it will sustain you. So many want tons of money as if it brings some more happiness. It just makes it easier to be unhappy with options of how to numb out. There are so many ways to do life and it just is not the same value and goals for everyone. It is time to really honor who we are, how we want to impact the world and how we can enjoy life more.
These are my wise words. Whatever age and place, enjoy what you do. Find a way to have fun and work. These days find a way online. There is so many opportunities and if you find the right system, it can really make you money. That is what I am doing. Using the youthful online platform with a foundational product. I like what I do now too. It is different than any other work I have done but it inspires, educates, helps others and they too can join the online income I have found. It fits all the boxes of impacting the world in yet another way.
So share what you love and make money doing that! The rewards and energy you get will bring in a good life.
When you are in business, it is wonderful to have the learning and interaction of other business owners. The community helps you grasp things often and see yourself different than maybe you considered. Self employed people find it helpful to be part of a mastermind or group to keep them expanding, Having a team of CEOS or Board to find solutions and get feedback. In my weekly group, we talked about Why we are in business.
This question rolled through all kinds of things in me. Why do I do any of the things I do? I think 2020 supported us to realize what we missed and what we were happy to not do. I think often I did things for family or community. I was expected this or that on various levels in many kinds of situations and that was my motive. It has me really noticing why I do anything I do? Do I need too? Does it inspire me? Fill me? Exhaust me? Do I have to do it? If so Why? Am I obligated or is it just a belief I have? In this wise woman stage and my daughter just moved to another country, why am I in Colorado? Will I stay? What are my whys these days?
I find this a very powerful reflection and am asking myself about many things I am doing. It has the great power in business I believe , for when it is in a lull or you feel stuck, your why you started is your lifeline. I started in water for my daughter wanted too and it hit the health and sustainability criteria for me. I also heard inwardly so many times, Get Into Water! That was the beginning why. Then I moved to Colorado during 2020 and there really was no other thing to be doing. No one was going anywhere so I was glad to have a mission and learn about this business.
Then I used the water and found such a difference in energy and taste. That was a good why as I drink mostly water. Erika lost a bunch of weight. A girlfriend of hers with IBS said the water was helping her. It became about the health aspects. I didn't have the extreme skin rashes. As I learned about using the water to clean the bathroom, veggies, clothes and how to use it for mouthwash, face spray, window cleaning, over 64 uses, I was digging on the sustainability. I didn't have to get toxic products and so much was eliminated from my grocery list. As an organic grower and green gal, this was really juicing me. What a savings from one investment!
Now that my daughter has moved and I am here alone, my why is even different. Yes it fits the bill, it's big ticket, lucrative, useful and now it is because I can! I can do a business online with automation and less effort on my part! I can be in cutting edge technology with product and system. I can make more money than I ever did at all the other endeavors I have been involved with. I can have a laptop lifestyle soon enough and have that freedom to be wherever I want. On adventures, visiting others and still take my phone and I can do work. My why has changed to because I can and I want to. Being in a network direct sales company and hitting top ranks making lots of money, I like that. Online training and cashflow automation. I want that now that I am alone out here. I want flexibility.
I also can share this with others. Other families can get a few thousand a month to help with expenses, take vacations, do whatever with all while drinking good water. No other opportunity has the big results of this. I am in that later chapters and I want to work less and be enjoying life more. Where else can I find that? And......with training on how.
I started looking at why I go dig free at the farm down the road? Because I can and it fills me. Why do I do my tai chi and shaking routine in the morning? I like it and I can do an easy workout and still look good! Why do I write? Because it fuels me and I have free time too. Why did I have a landscape job here for a bit? I wanted to be outside, reconnect with my body and the earth. Why do I get up in the morning? Because I have a great life unfolding. Why did I help my friends with kids? It is fun and silly for me. Money doesn't always run the equation although many times in life it did. But even then, most times, my heart sang from the work I did.
It is powerful to realize why you do things. I have done many things for reasons other than because I can. They were more for obligation, money, social norms, so many reasons. Not that they are bad but be aware of what motivates you. Make sure there is plenty in there that fuels you deeply. Connect with why you do things for it adds deeper, richer joys to the work. It has been a week of revelations and joy for me. Freeing to say because I can. Freeing to realize I can do all these things just because it sings me too. That is empowering!
Embody your whys and watch things mean more! If you seek an opportunity to be part of something better, big ticket so few sales make the difference and cutting edge online tech created to plug and play, reach out. I am really sinking into a new level of commitment to this business and it sure feels good. I want others to know this feeling as well. Change lives and paychecks. Yep, because I can!!
Pick your why's rather than they pick you!
It is such an insane world about us! We are shifting our ways and taking responsibility for our health in ways we never considered necessary. Being one who was part of the green, organic movement in farming, I am saddened by the turn the food industry has taken! Rather than grow food well and responsibly so it is good, they are adding all kinds of weird things to our food. I can't even take on that soap box other than to educate as it is so large, sneaky and pervasive.
However, I can manage my water which is 70% of me. We are made of water more than anything else and if we need to amp up our health, it simply can be through what water we drink. Sounds simple but scientifically it is so effective! We have all heard the news about contaminated places and even in Colorado they are testing schools and day cares for lead. Just now testing, something you would think was handled. You can go to the Environmental Working Group and put in your zip code and learn what is in your tap water here. It is not as good as you think! But really you know and why the bottled market is so huge. When we have so many pollutants, food additives, emfs, out in Colorado air quality issues, we need to flush. To support our bodies to be the magic they are, water can change everything.
To me it is that simple. Flush your system well. We are evolving life and if we can keep ourselves hydrated, our bodies will move out the crap. I think it is the only alternative. It also supports us to take in nutrients quicker, all processes run better when we are hydrated. 70% water. Easy solution. Drink quality!
If it can get you sick drinking bad water than drinking better water can support your health. It just is. I never thought we could be drinking such contaminated water. I thought someone, somewhere was handling it! But they are not! I do remember smelling chlorine as I ran a bath for Erika, when she was small and was glad to switch to well water. However, that too with fracking and the aquafirs interconnected is suspect even more. We just don't test it enough and conditions changing. It is not good news and it isn't going to get better soon. We must take responsibility for both our food and water as best we can.
Water is easy. You can get a filter! Most have a Britta but if you don't change them it creates worse water and we all seem to have done that. Make it easy on you and get an easy under the counter model that supports at least not having all the "stuff" in it. That is an awesome step. You can get a filter for our shower to take out chlorine and we are doing a wonderful thing in just those two choices. If you are a real health nut like me or have health ails you want the ionizer route and get the deluxe shower unit. There are good options that can support health on different levels. I have solutions for those who want to take responsibility for the water they consume. Connect with me!
It is an easy way to health. When you drink quality water, your body craves it. It doesn't like the water choices your giving it now and that is why it is often hard to get down those 8 glasses a day. But it is paramount for it creates a fluidity to you. Otherwise your blood and lymph system are thick like molasses. That is why I am on the bandwagon. As a health and beauty coach, homeopath and wellness seeker, water is the lost elixir that can easily change everything. Dehydration, acidosis, creates so many ills that we hear daily from others. Drink up friends, it will change everything.
I had to write today as one who has had skin conditions from too much sugar, wheat, alcohol, bad eating and truly have minimized my reactions from just Electrically Reduced Water. Body rashes, issues with digestion, all of it was a tale of mine. No more. I certainly have to be conscious of how I eat in excess yet I don't get the crazy rashes and uglies by drinking the 9.5 water!! I lost weight over time, feel more energy and just know I am not taking in contaminants from my daily drinking. It tastes like water should so my body is thirsty for it and unravels ails by just having more flushing action than I had before.
So truly the greatest health tip I have is to change the quality of your water. I am a big investigator and rabbit hole girl. I get into things in deep detail and live them before I spout out my findings. This one is huge and simple! I offer Multipure filters for your sink and shower for under $700. If you want a system to last a life time and actually create antioxidant hydrogen water and a mineralized shower, Kangen has the products. It is a matter of level and health choice. I say go all the way in on this one.
More quality doctors and healers will be sharing about quality water. Fitness fields are often aware already as they seem to spend money on the basics more than others. Either way, upgrade just a bit. No more Britta. No more bottled water! The bottled water is another danger as it is unregulated and that water is not checked. It is often tested with many contaminants, in plastic which has the pbas that are a danger, and it is flat out dead water. I can help you be savvy and in the know. I do not recommend R/O water so be wary there. Learn and upgrade in a small way. If that is all you do, you will thank me for it!!
Cheers to health! Cheers to the right water!
Reach out to me for water into! It is time to be savvy about it!
As a woman and an empath, the field of the world is intense! I am really putting into practice the things I learned years ago about energy management! It is all so perfect at this time more than any other. Even my book I wrote 8 years ago seems most prevalent for right now. I wanted to share an awareness that is making all the difference with 2 wars about and insanity in the world.
As we are moving around and connecting with others, it is hard not to be in adrenal stress. Talking to many effected by the many disasters can really be fearful and sad. When we are in the sympathetic fight or flight nervous system, we breathe shallow. It is hard not to when you listen to the stories. Rather than say anything, take deep breathes. As you watch the news, chat with loved ones or see crisis, stop and breathe deep. This will relax you and bring more oxygen into your brain. Reacting is not the way we know. It will tither you to a rat wheel or extreme emotional stress. Breathing deep is so powerful now!
The awareness I had is about my own energy field. Woman and empaths, feel everything. Some have closed off or don't allow the emotions of the field in and that is good for them. For the others like me, I am the environment. Where ever I go, I feel the energy and flavor of the place and then begin to jockey myself to help bring in peace and calm. I do it instinctively and often don't consider my own feelings. I am so tapped into the others that I really don't know myself from others in groups. This is a gift and it continues to show me how to use it rightly.
As I have learned to fill my field and know it, it is supporting me in this hectic time. I spend time in the morning really feeling how I feel and filling myself with joy, love and gentleness. As I go out, when I am feeling too much intensity, I stop, and ask, "How do you feel Lyn?" It has helped me tremendously to be in myself and expand me into my space. Then I can bring my good will to the situation rather than jockey myself to settle everyone. In getting into my space, noticing if this is my pain, sadness or not, I can then stabilize my love and help rather than exhaust myself feeling everything.
I thought it important to share that we as woman and empaths, hold the emotional nature of the spaces. When we bring our nurturing naturally, the light we are to a room, that light will do the work. It is not about me jockeying and making everyone feel better. I bring my feel better vibe in and hold. I am not in crisis right now so I can bring the calm, love and gentleness. When I have been in crisis, the calm ones where the ones who helped most. They didn't give me solutions or shift from their peaceful place. That is what helps most. To me, it is letting the divine in while I sit in love and caring and let that do the work. Before I was always trying to figure out who to be to help.
Just be yourself in your fullness knowing your from other. This was never explained well to me that I could really find my field in the way I can now. It is about not feeling the others and asking yourself, how do you feel and holding a boundary, a field around yourself of that. It is not about feeling the others and responding to it as if it were me. A good lesson for empaths.
The gift is that we bring in a calm, loving vibe or whatever we feel when in a group. It is not negating ourselves and feeling others. That is the trap. It is boundarying ourselves in fullness of our field. We sense what is needed, usually calm, and ground that in strongly to hold the space. We are space holders more than anything. You have to have a strong vibe of you to hold. Not feeling the whole field and acting. Feel the whole field, feel your field and just hang in that presence sending it out into the room. That is my great awareness these days.
Spend time breathing into your heart until you feel peace. If we all find peace within, we will effect the level of peace without. With all the reacting and believe me I can do my share of that, it is best to make it a practice to be peaceful inside. I am less likely to react when I start in my heart before I go into the world. I also find that filling myself through high impressions, oxygen and good food and water are the keys. Fill yourself first with peace and even calm joy before you interact. You have greater control and awareness of yourself and thus can better serve the weird sitautions we are encountering. We have no prior tools for a lot of it but the old methods work.
Breath deep, ground into yourself and know your feelings. Boundary that energy field of you by filling with you and hold for the others in calm loving. It has made things less stressful and more magical. I get to see the sparkle work through me rather than think I must have an answer to stuff that is way out of my league!!!
Love and Light to all!
