Breaking Free

Have you ever tried something which turned out to be a mistake? Well I did it again but this time, I had to admit to the problem. I absolutely hate routines, especially when it comes to diet and exercise.

Self Discovery

On a lazy afternoon, I sat on the couch flipping through the television channels, hoping to find an interesting program. Then I caught a glimpse of a new weight loss program which helps people lose weight by making the right lifestyle choices. I was hooked and ordered the program. I have been looking for something simple in order to maintain my weight without running to a gym or going crazy with other exercise videos. Based on statistics, most people who join gyms pay for memberships but usually don’t follow through to get the results they are seeking. I’ve been there and done that at least three times in my lifetime.

I was so excited to start this program that I downloaded it, rather than waiting for it to come in the mail. The first part of the program, I had to read over 60 pages in order to understand calories and the theory of fat. By the time I was on page 30, I had forgotten what I read a few pages back. Then there was an exercise program and measurements you had to take from your neck down. In order to motivate you, there were several women writing about their positive experience with the program.

So I continued to read on, still excited but I can see myself walking down a steep hill. I knew I was going to get to the bottom after continuing to page 60. Then I began to get a lot of emails from the company with great advice about staying healthy and eating the right foods. Wait there is a catch, you had to buy their supplements in order to maintain your weight to have that perfect body you always wanted. Weeks went by, I didn’t purchase any of their products. I got a friendly email yesterday which read, “we noticed you haven’t purchased any of our supplements, so therefore, we will give you a 30% discount towards your purchase.”

It was a wrap for me at that point. Time to break free from another to-do on my agenda. I have nothing against any of these type of programs and I am glad it works for others. I learned a very important lesson about myself through this experience. If I find another weight loss program, run don’t walk to the nearest exit. If it’s another lazy afternoon, keep your credit card as far away from any device that will allow you place an order for something which does not define who you are at this point of your life.

In life, there is always going to be routines. But the way I look at it, you have to pick your poison. This is just one of them I would rather avoid. My heart is in the right place for the right reasons but I know the truth about what makes me feel  uncomfortable. Anytime I got involved with a program that becomes a routine, especially when it comes to diet and exercise, it doesn’t work. I can’t even handle following recipes. I make my own. So what was I thinking?

In conclusion, I am going the natural route. I will try to eat healthy, walk whenever possible, and purchase my own supplements. Cheat days, absolutely! But I will continue to maintain a healthy weight. Breaking free from this program was the best thing I ever did because I am at peace with myself, accepting who I am and taking responsibility for my actions.

Nugget of truth: Embrace the truth about yourself. Be the person that God created you to be. Acceptance is key, and living out your truth.

What is going on in our skies?

20160623_185229

Have you looked up at our blue skies recently? Most people do not focus on what’s going on, unless there is something unusual going on. Well, to my surprise I found out there is more going on than I possibly could have imagined. If you’re asleep in your awakened state, too busy to pay attention to the skies above, the spraying of chemicals called chemtrails would go unnoticed.

I can still remember the day I looked up and saw contrails crisscrossing a beautiful blue sky. At least I thought it was contrails left over from the airplanes passing by. They were unusual and did not dissipate but turned a bright and sunny day into a day filled with dark clouds. There were X’s, parallel lines and tic-tac-toe grids for miles across the sky. This is not a one time event but takes place several times all over the world.

Perplexed by what was happening, I decided to find out what was changing the skies above. I went to the Internet and googled my observations. What I found out changed the way I looked at our skies forever. I stumbled across a website which talked about chemtrails or Geoengineering. It was called collective evolution what on earth are they spraying which provided more technical aspects of chemtrails vs contrails. As I knuckled down to read the information, I got more than I bargained for, and I was very disturbed.

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but years later, the more and more I paid attention to the skies above, I realized what was being discussed in some of those articles were true. This crisscrossing effect has been taking place since the early  90’s. Why didn’t I notice it earlier? The more I read, the more angry I became because this is our air space, how dare they contaminate it with chemicals. This earth belongs to our creator but is also our home which should not be altered. What are the ramifications for the future on our health? Why are people in denial of what’s being seen all over the globe. I was on vacation in the Caribbean, and there it was on a beautiful hot sunny day to my dismay.

They believe most people wouldn’t see it, or oppose it even when its being done right in front of their eyes. We are asleep, and the more we are willing to walk with our eyes closed, the more they can put through these programs which contains chemical pollution which damages our air quality. Did you know these programs were implemented since the early 90’s? I asked myself,” why didn’t I notice this before?”

Choose to walk with your eyes wide open. Pay attention to what’s being done in your name whether it’s spiritually, scientifically or politically. After all it’s your taxes that are paying for all these government induced programs. Ask whether or not It’s to your advantage or disadvantage?

What do you think of what’s going on all over planet earth?

The Sands of Time

They say “age is but a number” but is it really? When I was in my youth, life seemed like it was going to last forever. I was not afraid of taking risks like many of todays teenagers. In the mind of a young person, the world is an adventure  waiting to be discovered. Some of them feel indestructible, willing to take chances in dangerous situations. Let’s face it, some of us were willing to step out on a limb, believing we were going to be young for a very long time. Continue reading “The Sands of Time”

However, I often wonder why me and why this particular spiritual gift? Continue reading “Why Me?”
