Intuititive Abilities


A friend was participating in a Facebook game, which was a certain number (someone else gave her the number) of things about yourself that others may not know. I got 5 and this was my 5th thing:

5. I could 'feel' energies and see/communicate with 'entities' most can't see, since as far back as I can remember. I don't normally talk about it though.

I was honoured and blessed to have people make lovely comments and even send me personal messages about this. It was encouraging and I thought I would so some blog posts about it. My intention is to maybe open some eyes about what it's like and help others who have caught a glimpse of their intuitive abilities but either didn't know where to go from there or feel it fading away and would like to keep it 'open'. 

First, let me tell you of my first memories of my intuitive abilities. I was maybe 5, living in Cold Lake, Alberta and it had to do with 'imaginary friends' that I could feel, see and hear. But, not in the way you do with 'real' people. 

'Seeing' them is like remembering a movie playing out in front of you. Only, you know you aren't seeing it with your eyes. I don't know how else to explain it, other than that. A memory but it didn't happen, it's happening now. 

I could also 'feel' the woods, like it was alive. The denser the woods the higher the vibration there is. I guess it's the same with people. Only, the affects are quite the opposite. With a great amount of people I feel overwhelmed but with a great forest I feel hugely grounded. 

I always thought it was being an only child that these intuitive skills developed but, after my Facebook post and the messages I received, I now think maybe it was from living in such a magical, heavily wooded place. Others who lived there are also more connected to the earth and interested in metaphysical things than others who have not lived there. 

Those who have felt similar things, please continue to spend time feeling and focusing on them. In this day and age, what do we need more??

Be blessed ~Kim

Baking Soda, Part Two

I had heard of using baking soda to cure cancer and that using it as toothpaste changes the inside of your mouth to a more optimal PH but after writing my last blog post I found this link, which makes baking soda a super food, in my book. 

In a time where just about everything CAUSES cancer to find something that is so ANTI-CANCER.... I think I just found my lifetime staple for body and home care!! And the longer I think about what I read in the link (below) the more uses I find. Toxic cleaning products cause throat and lung cancer (my mom died of a cancerous tumor in her throat-- she was a cleaner) so I will be sure to add baking soda to the homemade spray cleaners I make. Maybe baking soda in the air would make the air more alkalized and therefore healthier...? Something to think about, anyway. :-)

Please read the link and comment below. Also, please share to as many people as you can, this information just may save lives. 


An Aha Moment in Body Care (part 1)

As a Holistic Lifestyle Coach, I help to guild people to a more holistic life. Recently, I came across something that I wish I would have known 15 years ago, when I started my search for a natural and cruelty-free deodorant. BAKING SODA AND WATER!! 



It's so simple I can't believe I didn't find out until now. Just put a teaspoon of baking soda in your hand, add a little water and rub your hands together and voila, rub on armpits. I found it to last all day and right through to the next day. You also get the added bonus of softer hands. 

I already used baking soda for cleaning and toothpaste and now I'm also testing it out in place of shampoo. What a great find!!

Innovating


A business I started in 2002, which had grown in leaps and bounds since then, had a major change in the Summer of 2013. I downsized. Big time. I closed the doors to my beloved centre and didn't have a plan. I had no ideas. 

The first few months were okay as I continued to teach yoga in local parks and sell holistic products but then came the cold and everything came to a screeching hault. It was awful. I was not at peace with it. 

But, then I started reading a new book, which helped. The book is called, "The Greatness Guide"and one of the things I read that helped me to feel better about my business situation was, " ...just keep innovating. Innovate at work. Innovate at home. Innovate in your relationships. Innovate in the way you run your life. Innovate in terms of the way you see the world. To become stagnant is to begin to die. Growth, evolution and reinvention sustain life." 



I still had no ideas but then I read an affirmation that turned everything around ..."when you are at peace inside your situation outside will change". I started meditating and the answers came. Little things like 'get the heat fixed in the trailer, so your work season lasts longer' and I saw an ad on Facebook for a life coaching class, which I bought and was inspirational. 

Once again, my business has evolved and been reinvented. A renewed sense of purpose is always a blessing. 💚
