Enter INTO the HOUSE!

Enter INTO the HOUSE!

I have spent the past 4 days taking some much-needed time away from Facebook and yesterday I got a picture of something that you need to see.

Everything we pray for is possible. Jesus said: with man, this is IMPOSSIBLE! But with GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! (Matthew 19: 26) Everything we pray for is covered by a piece of property. I want you to imagine a house that you can see has a party going on inside it. And you want to join it. But it has a metal gate around it. And the only way to walk through the gate is for someone to open it from the inside.

Forgiveness of our sins is the gate. We walk through the gate by asking Jesus for forgiveness. And we open the door to the house by asking for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Many people have entered the house. But don’t get completely filled with the Holy Spirit. Many think that the Holy Spirit’s job is to convict of sin. And that is certainly part of it. But that isn’t all! Praise God!!! There is much more.

From the big room, which has many people around walking around forgiven of their sins, are very sick people. And many broke people as well. This is most of the body of Christ. But as you walk around, you notice 2 other doors and decide to explore what is there. The doors are easily opened. There is no lock or even a door handle to have to use.

You see one person who is sick go into one of those doors. A short time later you see this same person come out and he is healed. But still has evidence of the fact that he was sick. A little while later another person goes in that door in a wheelchair and she stays in longer and when she comes out, she is no longer in the wheelchair and looked completely whole. Not just healed, but she is made whole! No evidence of ever being sick!

You have been battling a sickness and decide to explore this room and see what happens. As you walk through this door, you immediately feel healthy and see others coming in and out. But most only accept healing. But you want more. So, you look around. And see another door. You go through that door and see Jesus Himself. And He takes you from being healed to being made completely whole. No evidence of ever being sick. He replaces body parts that were missing, he removes all the evidence that you were ever sick. And afterward: you spend time just resting with Him and praising Him.

When you leave that room, you decide to explore the rest of the house. You want to know what else is around. You see pictures on the walls of many people. And someone suddenly is walking with you, but you don’t know who is at first. But then you realize it is the Holy Spirit. And He guides you into the truth.

He guides you into another room. And this room has money in it. You see people taking what they need, but no more. And they are content, but not joyful. You get the feeling that they are only getting enough to get their basic needs met. But like the other room, you wonder if there is more. That is when the Holy Spirit points out another door. This room is only accessible for those who seek God first. Which you have been doing.

In this room, you meet Jesus again. And He asks you what you want. And you remember that nothing is impossible with Jesus. So, you get bold. And you ask for a house that is paid for. And a new car. He says ok. Because Jesus knows you are wanting to help more people than your current house can allow for. You also ask for enough furniture to have place for travelers to stay with you. So, you can bless them. You ask for a career where you can bless people. He says ok. You ask for peace. And again, He says ok. You ask for a certain relationship to be reconciled. Again: he says ok.

And this is when you realize that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH JESUS. And a boldness rises in you and you ask Jesus to bless you more, so you can be a blessing to others. And even to surprise you along the way and since you are not doubting He will do it: you know it will come to pass.

Believers have access to everything, but only a few know it. And among those who know it: only a few accept it.

Having FUN for YOUR health!

Having FUN for YOUR health!

If you are reading this by connecting to my Facebook page, I have WordPress post this automatically when I post it. I am taking a few days and praying for wisdom and direction. If you want to connect to me, please send me a private message. I will receive it.

If we are to truly walk in divine health, it is critical that we have fun. One of the reasons that children, typically, don’t get illnesses such as ulcers is that they get out and have fun. The healthiest adults I know follow this principle too. They get out and have fun. I’ve spoken about the Lavalicious Lifestyle before. And one of the reasons I am so attracted to this lifestyle is because it is fun.

It means that you are working but having an element of fun with it. One of my favorite movies is Mary Poppins. I love the scene where Mary Poppins is having Jane and Michael Banks clean up their room. Here is a link to that scene: Mary Poppins: A Spoon Full of Sugar. In this scene, the room gets cleaned up, but it is fun too.

Reggie Cochran has told me that he has had fun and working on cruise ships, golf courses, and many other places. He doesn’t choose having an income or having fun. He has fun doing what he loves and makes a living doing it.

Maybe you have a job you can’t stand. But you do it anyway. What can you do? One, you can change your career. Unless you live in a country where you are told what to do for a living, that is an option. Maybe you need additional training. Go out and get it. Two, you can find a way to put joy into your job. Find something you like about it and focus on that. Three, change to a different position within your company. The key is: make a change.

Here’s your challenge: find a way to make fun an active part of your life.

Connection of fear to disease!

Connection of fear to disease!

If you are reading this by connecting to my Facebook page, I have WordPress post this automatically when I post it. I am taking a few days and praying for wisdom and direction. If you want to connect to me, please send me a private message. I will receive it.

Fear can cause illness! This has been confirmed in science! It can weaken your immune system, cause cardiovascular damage, ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome, and decreased fertility.

Consequences of long-term fear can be:

  • Fatigue
  • Inflammation
  • Yellow fat accumulation (which is the dangerous type of fat)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Clinical depression
  • Accelerated aging
  • Premature death

What can you do?

  1. Recognize that it is there, but then take steps to deal with it!
  2. Find things to be joyful about.
  3. Speak positive things and don’t allow fear to remain.
  4. Sleep!
  5. Learn to be assertive. And when people say things that upset you: tell them and don’t allow it to continue. If they continue to upset you, then you may need to make the decision to limit their contact in your live.
  6. Exercise: martial arts, yoga, walking, swimming. All these are great for coping with fear.
  7. Nutrients:
    1. vitamin b
    2. glutathione enhancer.
    3. Add magnesium
    4. folic acid
    5. Vitamin C
    6. Magnolia bark
    7. Phosphatidylserine
    8. Phytosterols
    9. Adaptogenic herbs (connect to me to find out what would help)
    10. 5-HTP
    11. L-theanine
  8. Follow a heathy diet. Consider Dr. Colbert’s Keto Zone Diet that I’ve discussed. By reducing inflammation, you are taking an additional step to being healthy which helps you be more proactive in dealing with stress and fear.

Be blessed.

The Power of One

The Power of One

I’m talking about this on my live broadcasts on Facebook this week too. So, jump on Facebook and watch them there too.

I want to share a poem today that is one of my favorites. The author is unknown.

One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul,

One star can guide a ship home,

One word can frame a goal.

 

One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights a room,

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will conquer gloom.

 

One step must start each journey,

One word must start each prayer,

One hope will raise our spirits,

One touch can show you care.

 

One voice can speak with wisdom,

One heart can know what’s true.

One life can make a difference,

You see it’s up to you.

 

Enough said. For today.

HELP! I’m too exhausted to exercise!

HELP! I’m too exhausted to exercise!

(Exhaustion, part 2)

I was exhausted from 2009 through 2014! Even through the early part of my own recovery! And exhaustion made exercising impossible! I was in one of those seasons of life that my own body was telling me to just stop! Walking across the living room (a total of 3-5 feet) was exhausting. Doing laundry was nearly impossible. Caring for my family was impossible. All I wanted to do was sleep. I had to get some help.

Yesterday I made some suggestions on what to do for this on your diet. Today, what can you do physically. This will be continued tomorrow.

  1. Build rest into your day. I realize this may be hard, especially if you are working full-time, have kids, homeschool, or anything along those lines. Take a yoga class and participate twice a week.
  2. Take 2-20-minute rest breaks a day. These are not naps! This a time out to get alone and breath and restore.
  3. Change your perspective. Begin a gratitude journal. Find positive things in life. Laugh! Do something fun every day. Minimize stress.

Modify your lifestyle!

  1. Eat food on a regular cycle
  2. Exercise, but don’t run! High heart rate is hard on the adrenals.
  3. AVOID negative people and self-talk! This is hard, but it is critical!
  4. Take time for yourself and do something relaxing. Go to a bookstore and relax with a cup of tea (NO CAFFEINE!).
  5. Seek counsel. Get some help.
  6. Start a home-based business that is easy to do. Have it be something you are already interested in. Do you write? Start a blog. Are you interested in wellness? Look at network marketing business focused on wellness. Are you good at organizing? Talk about it. But the key in this is keep it simple, and fun!
  7. Add a full-body massage 2-3 times a week. This will raise serotonin and dopamine levels and decrease cortisol levels.
  8. Get to bed by 11 and sleep 8-10 hours. Get a Garmin or Helo band to measure your sleep patterns. I will rarely tell specific brands on here. But occasionally I will. 😊
  9. Listen to what I call power songs first thing in the morning to help you get your day started off right. These are songs that get you excited about the day.

Tomorrow will be the role that martial arts has played in my recovery. And how to incorporate it into your life. As well as how via the internet you can do it on your schedule whenever is convenient for you.

HELP! I’M BURNED OUT

HELP! I’M BURNED OUT

(How to address it in your life)

First, I want to let you know that if I get enough interest, I can teach about what I’m going to address on this via a webinar that would take about an hour. I got this question yesterday via private message after my live broadcast on Facebook.

First, I get it! It’s what started me on the journey I’m on. So, I’m going to tell what I did that worked. And since I did several things, I am going to take a few days to address it. Today, what diet changes can help. Tomorrow and Saturday, activities I started participating in and Sunday, the role faith plays.

First, what to eat or avoid. I highly recommend pea protein since it contains all 9 essential amino acids your body needs to recover from burn out. When you are preparing your foods, keep the temperature below 120ºF to keep your adrenal glands from being further drained. Add extra virgin olive oil, butter, and coconut oil to your soups and smoothies. Margarine, soy and modified oils MUST go. Add nutrient dense foods. Including coconut, olives, avocado, cruciferous vegetables, fatty fish, chicken & turkey. Nuts, such as walnuts & almonds. Seeds such as pumpkin, chia & flax. Celtic or Himalayan sea salt, brightly colored vegetables. High quality carbohydrates such as quinoa, lentils and buckwheat. The things I recommend you avoid are caffeine, sugar (honey or stevia are okay), processed and microwaved foods and hydrogenated oils.

Next, cooked vs raw foods. Cooked foods are easier on the body than raw foods and serves the body well when you are drained physically, emotionally, and/or mentally. Beef, chicken, turkey cooked for about 6 hours is easier for the body to digest. And is a good source of protein. I highly recommend you switch to grass fed meats. According to Dr. Don Colbert in his new book Dr. Colbert’s Keto Zone Diet, “Grass-fed meats, I later learned, are much healthier than grain-fed meats. In fact, grass-fed meats have more of all the healthy fats, minerals, and nutrients that our bodies need.” (Colbert, 11).

Third, supplements. Add type 2 hyaluronic acid and collagen. Also add a glutathione enhancer to boost your immune system and cool inflammation. Vitamin B-complex is a high need. Plus, fish oil, vitamin C, vitamin D, Selenium, Magnesium, and Zinc. Finally, add adaptogenic herbs for boosting adrenal function. On the type 2 hyaluronic acid & collagen, the glutathione enhancer and adaptogenic herbs, contact me directly so I can direct you to the ones I have used and know are effective. I have preferred brands on the others as well. My preferred brands on everything I suggest are backed by science. And can’t be purchased from your favorite superstore. By using products backed by science, you will see faster results and you will save money.

To contact me directly send me a message on Facebook on my business page at Malissa Carole or email me here.

Where Do You Find Motivation?

Where Do You Find Motivation?

I’m part of a Mastermind group on Facebook led by my friend Brad Szollose called Liquid Leadership. On it, I recently learned about some different ways to start your day off right. Brad did a teaching on starting your day off right. And he gave 4 suggestions on things to do. I’m doing all 4, but 2 are new to me.

 

  1. Music in the morning. Stand up and move to it! You’ve been put on this earth to do something Amazing! Here are some songs that I find motivating.

Hall of Fame by the Script ft. will.i.am

Superheroes by The Script

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes by Jimmy Buffett

The Comeback by Danny Gokey

  1. Alphabet technique: take the 26 letters of the alphabet and pick 3 power words from each letter. And say them aloud with your arms wide open. “I am ____” For example, for the letter “A,” I am amazing. I am adorable. I am awesome. Continue this for all 26 letters. One letter for each day. So it will take 26 days to complete the entire alphabet.
  2. Don’t process it! Just write whatever is on your mind. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar. This is for your eyes only.
  3. Sit for 20-30 minutes and relax. Find a passage in the bible to meditate on. Keep it simple. My favorite passage to meditate on is “God is faithful.” Which is from Deuteronomy 7 verse 9.

Other things you can do to be motivated is have an attitude of gratitude, listen to uplifting music, set goals and follow through on them. If you need help, contact me and I can teach how to do this. It’s not complicated. Have a gratitude journal. By doing these things, you will find motivation. Also, uplift someone else. If you’re on Facebook, take 15 minutes and post a meaningful comment on 5 friends pages. Uplifting someone else has an uplifting effect on you too.
