My Spiritual Walk

I came to my spiritual walk at a Billy Graham Crusade in Chicago at the age of 12. That was a profound time for me to understand that I was loved unconditionally. Since that time I have continued to grow in my love for the Lord and have come to consider my role in the world as an outpouring of His love. Coaching is not a job for me - I consider it to be a calling. I want to make a difference for His glory. 

Spiritual Wellness is an individualized matter involving values and beliefs that provide a sense of purpose in our lives. While different individuals may have different views of what spiritualism is, it is generally considered to be the search for meaning and purpose in human existence, leading one to strive for a state of harmony with oneself and others while working to balance inner needs with the rest of the world. It can be associated with organized religion. However, some of the most spiritual people I know would not consider themselves to be religious. I happen to be a life-time follower of Jesus. Don’t worry goal in coaching is not to bring you into my ‘fold’ but to allow you to find your own spiritual walk!

 

It is important for everyone to explore and discover what they believe is their own sense of meaning and purpose. I believe that being Mindful can help with this process. Exploring a more spiritual path often involves looking for one or more of the following eight things.

 

PURPOSE / DIRECTION. Whether you are on the top of the wheel of material life or on the bottom, there is an underlying sense of dissatisfaction, limitation, and emptiness. Some people are sensitive to this, others aren’t, or they try to fill this up by chasing external goals endlessly. Spirituality is a search for meaning, for purpose and direction in life. It fulfills our need to have a foundation for living, a path or way of life in the light of a larger context. It speaks to the need to be “aligned” with something bigger than our body and mind.

 

ONENESS / LOVE / CONNECTION. This speaks to our sense of separation and incompleteness. Because it is painful, we seek connection and love – either in a community, or in being one with the universe, or connecting with the Divine (whatever shape this may take). To feel complete, we crave to receive and give unconditional love, which brings a sense of total acceptance and of happiness in being alive. This search can also manifest as returning to the source, to God, or to a sense of sacredness.

 

GROWTH. There is an innate drive in many of us to evolve, to improve, to push the boundaries, reach our full potential. The drive to continuously grow and learn, live a life authentic to our truth, develop our mind, cultivate virtues, and expand our consciousness.

 

ANSWERS / TRUTH. Questions like “Who am I?”, “Why are we here?”, and “What else is there?” together with a drive to understand how life works and to learn about ourselves. For some this takes the form of understanding, absorbing, and becoming one with the absolute Truth.

 

HAPPINESS / PEACE / OVERCOME SUFFERING. Suffering is the initial door of spirituality for many people. When our mind depends on external things for happiness, its experience of happiness will be inconstant, unreliable, impermanent – just like external causes are. It has been rightly coined as “stock market happiness”. Since suffering is a mental phenomenon, and spiritual practices are a means to transform one’s mind, it is a wise way of seeking a better life. Hence, there is the drive to seek happiness and peace internally. Or to at least to diminish the suffering that we are experiencing. Spirituality helps us gain balance, independence from external cases, and a greater appreciation of life.

 

TRANSCENDENCE / ENLIGHTENMENT. Different traditions describe enlightenment differently. But the common theme is that it is a state of transcendence from the human condition, beyond all possibility of further suffering. There is a radical and permanent shift in our perception and experience of the world, and a moving beyond the sense of being an individual, or a person. It’s the urge to experience ultimate peace or freedom, to find the ultimate reality of who we are, transcend the ego, or “merge with God”.

 

EXPLORATION / MYSTERY. Diving into one’s own consciousness and exploring other aspects of reality is something that speaks to our thirst for knowledge, experience, and adventure. Learning the mysteries of life and nature, exploring the sacred, and living with a sense of wonder.

SERVING. The urge to serve people in a deeper level, making a big difference in their life, and helping to uplift humanity.

So these are the possible reasons that you may consider exploring spirituality. Having a greater clarity on what is the drive behind your search can be helpful when choosing which path or practices to take.

I have researched the scientific literature and know that my clients need easy access to quality CBD products. I see how this natural product can change people’s lives and decrease the impact of debilitating disease, help prevent cancer and help with its treatment, decrease dementia and seizures, control addictive disorders and diabetes, help reduce weight, and effectively decrease anxiety and depression.

 

I encourage my patients and clients to explore the benefits of CBD. There is no incentive for drug companies to advertise these products since there is no ‘mark-up’ big Pharma can attach to cannabinoids. The fact is, CBD is helping people naturally. My hope is that you not only experience the healing powers of cannabinoids but that you will join me on my mission to tell more people about it.  

 

What is CBD?

 

Cannabidiol is one of more than 80 beneficial components in cannabis. It has no THC and therefore it is not psychotropic and does NOT make you high. It is legal in all 50 states. It has proven to be a healthy alternative to medications for many conditions. It is considered a supplement and therefore cannot be advertised as a “treatment”.

 

Conditions that CBD may help

 

The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and many other researchers have found CBD has the following beneficial properties:

 

  • Antioxidant: combats oxidative stress.

  • Anti-inflammatory: decreases inflammation.

  • Anti-tumoral, Anti-cancer: combats tumor, cancer cell growth.

  • Anxiolytic, Antidepressant: combats anxiety and depression, and PTSD.

  • Antiemetic: reduces nausea and vomiting.

  • Anticonvulsant: suppresses seizure activity.

  • Antipsychotic: combats psychosis.

  • Anti-addictive: helps people decrease use of tobacco, alcohol, and narcotic pain medication

  • Neuroprotective: protects the brain and combats damage leading to dementia, Parkinson's disease and other neurologic conditions.

  • Diabetes/Weight Loss: suppresses appetite, changing white fat to ‘brown’ (metabolically active) fat, and decreasing insulin resistance.

 

Health Coaching is Entirely FREE using CBD from My Suppliers

 

If you sign up to use CBD products with either of my companies I will provide you with Health Coaching at a 50% reduction in cost. This is because I am convinced that CBD will increase your responsiveness to coaching.

Ordering CBD

However, you don't have to be registered with me to try our CBD Product. Just go to the website noted below. In addition, if you would like to join my team to spread the news about CBD just go to the bottom of the page and click on "Join My Team". I can advise you in the correct usage of this supplement.

One question everyone has is "how much is enough?". The fact is that we all produce our own cannabinoids. The CBD Oil allows your own chemical to enter your cells. Therefore, everyone is different! Our philosophy is to start low and go slow! Start with one or two drops a couple of times a day and see how you feel. I often encourage my patients to start with the 500mg sublingual drops. Progressively increase until you have the desired effect - we call this titrating your dose. Please contact me with questions.

I actually have two companies that I work with which have different kinds of products. This gives me, and my patients, flexibility in dosing.

 

One Medication Interaction Caveat!

If you are taking any medication that has a warning about 'grapefruit juice' you need to know that CBD products have a similar warning! Either check with me or you primary care provider to make sure it's safe for you to use CBD products.

 

Why Use?

Whenever you use online products you need to be cautious. A recent study in November 2017 noted that 70% of online CBD products are mislabeled by unscrupulous sellers! Always ensure that there is third party confirmation of what CBD product you are actually getting. This is what CBD from my distributors provides!
