DETOX with ME!

Who Wants to DETOX With Me_Spring is upon us! I’m curious what you’ve been noticing in your body/mind/spirit during this transition. If you think about it, it’s a huge transition — the ground was covered in snow, the river was iced over, fires were in the hearths, heavier foods were on the menu, the world was a little slower and a little quieter. Then we went through an in-between period as the snow melted — lots of mud. I felt that way in my body a little bit, too.  Did you? I felt the heaviness of early spring and felt very slow and sluggish for a couple weeks.

It’s normal to feel a little “off” during these major seasonal transitions (Winter into Spring and Summer into Fall). This time offers us an opportunity to cleanse, just like the earth is doing, by letting go of the heaviness we’ve accumulated over the long winter. It also offers us a chance to hone our intuitive knowing and sync up with the rhythms of nature. Aligning with the rhythms of the natural world around us is how we thrive! Our ancestors knew it! It’s time for us to remember, too.

Spring often conjures images of tiny shoots popping up out of the soil, buds on trees, sunshine, etc. but early spring also carries with it a heaviness, as we are still transitioning out of winter. Our health is well-served by making some changes in the way we eat and what we do with ourselves during this transition. Ayurveda (literally translated as “the science/ knowledge/ philosophy of LIFE” a.k.a. the sister science of yoga) offers us much time-tested (being that it’s about 5,000 years old!) wisdom for thriving in our body/mind/spirit!

Springtime Ayurvedic Wisdom for Your Whole Self

  • Incorporate more bitter, pungent, and astringent flavors in your diet (lemon, arugula, dandelion greens, ginger)
  • Add spice to your food (black pepper, chilies, and turmeric)
  • Favor warm, light, and spicy foods
  • Reduce naps
  • Get outside and get moving
  • Consider doing a Detox
  • Eat a lighter breakfast than you do in winter
  • Only eat when you’re hungry
  • Avoid: cold foods, dairy, sweet, heavy fruits, wheat, sweeteners (except raw honey), salt, roasted nuts, fatty meats

I’m starting a detox this week and I’d like to invite you to join me. Don’t put the idea off immediately, thinking a detox is all about self-deprivation. It’s NOT! It’s simply a time to cleanse and reset so that you enter Spring/Summer with —

a BODY that feels lighter and more at ease,

a MIND that is calm and clear, and

a SPIRIT that is replenished and invigorated!

Doesn’t that sound AMAZING? If you think so, too, then follow along with me on my Facebook page! I’ll be sharing my experience and giving you tips to detox along with me. Let’s do this together! You can help hold me accountable and I’ll cheer you on in the process!


I’ll help YOU Design Your Own Detox…

  1. Week 1 is all about easing in, noticing your tendencies, and setting yourself up for success.
  2. Week 2 is the deepest part of the detox. You will decide what you want out of it and what you want to put into it, so even this deepest part doesn’t have to be hard! It’s all up to you!
  3. Week 3 is about slowly coming out of the detox and moving back into normal life (which you may have a different definition for!!)

Aren’t you curious to see HOW AMAZING YOU COULD FEEL in 3 weeks?

I AM! That’s why I’m doing it. Remember, there’s no pressure here. This is all about you, for you, and I will support you as I am going through the process with you!

What’s Different About MamaWise?

MamaWise is a Holistic Childbirth Education series that is different from your “average” childbirth ed course for 4 reasons.

  1. It’s Holistic, which means we look at the WHOLE picture. In the case of childbirth, that means educating the mother on everything that has anything to do with the health of mama, baby, family, and community. MamaWise covers EVERYTHING — nutrition, exercise, relaxation, emotional health, choices for birth, birth planning, new family dynamics, and (definitely one of the most important pieces >>>) postpartum care.
  2. It’s Empowering, meaning this course gives the power back to the Mama (where it belongs)! It’s important that women recognize the beauty and the power of the birthing experience.
  3. It’s All-Encompassing! From the microcosm (taking care of mama) to the macrocosm (the cultivation of a new family — because even if this is your 5th kid, the addition of a new soul is the birth of a new family). Learning the art of true Self-Care practices translates to how you show up for your family and in your life. It also serves as a powerful example to your children of how to love and care for themselves.
  4. Mamas NEED other Mamas! In more traditional times, women supported women through birth and postpartum, but in our current culture, these practices have been mostly lost. This course offers you the support of other women who have been through, and are going through, what you are going through. Jessica Robinson is also a Mama, a Doula, a Yoga Health Coach, and a Pregnancy/Labor/Postpartum Massage Therapist.

As a mother, myself, I have learned so much from my own experiences and the help I’ve received from other knowledgeable, caring mamas, and I want to share with you how the Journey of Motherhood can be one of the most AMAZING experiences in a woman’s life! It all starts with conception and most folks assume it ends with the birth of a baby, but that’s only the beginning.

Through the experience of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum
a MAMA is born (with each and every new child she carries).
You will NEVER be the same again, nor would you want to!

This Course Is for YOU If:

  • You are READY to embrace the experience of BIRTH as personal/familial TRANSFORMATION
  • You want to tap into your INTUITION and Feel Empowered by your Birth experience
  • Your past birth experiences have left you feeling dis-empowered and you want something BETTER this time
  • You want to Know your options and Make Your Own Choices for Your Birth
  • Your family and/or friends aren’t supporting your natural birth choices and you’re wanting the support of other like-minded mamas

We Start March 11th! Get Details and Sign Up HERE!

Blue Nepalese Chamomile essential oil is renowned for its ability to ease feelings of tension and soothing properties. Apply Aspire to pulse points throughout the day to stay focused, energized,
and driven.

 


NOW I’ll share with you some of my personal staples…

1) First of all, with all of the cold and flu that’s going around, I HIGHLY recommend diffusing OnGuard and Breathe — two of my favorite dōTERRA blends!! Not only does the combination smell HEAVENLY, but these POWERFUL plants do a AMAZING job!

wa-doterra-on-guarddōTERRA On Guard, a proprietary essential oil blend, provides a natural and effective alternative for immune support when used internally.* As one of dōTERRA’s best-selling blends, dōTERRA On Guard protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system when ingested.* dōTERRA On Guard can be taken internally on a daily basis to maintain healthy immune function.* It can also be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaner. When diffused, dōTERRA On Guard helps purify the air, and can be very energizing and uplifting.

wa-doterra-breathedōTERRA Breathe is a remarkable blend of essential oils including Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravintsara, and Ravensara. dōTERRA Breathe maintains feelings of clear airways and easy breathing while minimizing the effects of seasonal threats. dōTERRA Breathe can be applied topically to the chest, back, or bottom of feet, or diffused at nighttime to calm the senses and promote a restful sleep.


I use these two oils RELIGIOUSLY when anyone in our household is sick with anything respiratory-related.


2) We use Balance in my household almost daily!

wa-doterra-balanceThe warm, woody aroma of dōTERRA Balance Grounding Blend creates a sense of calm and well-being. We perfectly blend Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil to offer an enticing fragrance that promotes tranquility and relaxation. Spruce, one of the oils in dōTERRA Balance, was used by Native Americans for health and spiritual reasons and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile can ease anxious feelings, while Frankincense provides a grounding, balancing effect on emotions.

3) ClaryCalm is my Go-To for every time of the month that I notice symptoms from my moon cycle (achy lower back, bloating, emotional sensitivity, etc.). This stuff WORKS!
wa-clarycalmClaryCalm is a proprietary blend of essential oils that provides a soothing and calming effect during a woman’s menstrual cycle. A topical blend of Clary Sage, Lavender, Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Fennel, Carrot Seed, Palmarosa, and Vitex, ClaryCalm provides a cooling effect to the skin and helps balance emotions. ClaryCalm utilizes FCF (furnaocoumarin- free) Bergamot essentail oil to prevent sun sensitivity.

4) Peace is one of dōTERRA’s Emotional Aromatherapy blends, and it is simply LOVELY! (I’m diffusing it RIGHT NOW with Tangerine.)
wa-doterra-peaceAre life’s anxious moments leaving you feeling overwhelmed and afraid? dōTERRA Peace Reassuring Blend of oral and mint essential oils is a positive reminder you don’t have to be perfect to nd peace. Slow down, take a deep breath, and reconnect with the composed, collected you. Everything turning out fine begins with believing it will—and a few drops of Peace Reassuring Blend.



There are many others that I use on a regular basis (Cedarwood, Melaleuca, Oregano, Serenity, Lemon, and Lavender to name just a few), but these are some great ones to get you started learning about how to use these wonderful plant medicines.

How to Heal Your Self

 

Start with Intuition

It’s no secret that we humans used to have better intuitive skills than we do in this day and age. Think back to earlier times when we lived in harmony with the earth. We harvested, we tracked animals and hunted. In order to track an animal, a person must know how to listen deeply and use their senses in ways that would be considered “supernatural” these days. They are, in fact, SUPER + NATURAL. Sadly, these kinds of skills have been long forgotten in modern “civilization”, but thankfully, they aren’t lost because they’re in our DNA. We all have the ability to sense in more ways than just the 5 senses — sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell.  “Many neurologists identify nine or more senses, and some list as many as 21.”

Why Do I Need to Tap Into My Senses?

Even though today we might not have a need for the tracking skills, tapping into our ability to listen deeply to our own bodies IS a crucial component to our health evolution. Here’s what I mean by that…

The average American eats more processed, packaged, and what I call “pretend food” than real food and we are only taught that we have 5 senses. We are encouraged to see the doctor yearly (much more for those under 2) and follow her directions for our health. At NO point in mainstream education are we taught how to have a healthy, whole, and happy human body. If you are privy to such knowledge, either you had parents that were “in the know” or you went against the grain and sought out the truth about wholistic health. Given that, chances are pretty good that, like myself, you didn’t grow up with an education in body wisdom. Given THAT, like myself, you’ve probably already got some hits against you in the whole health department. Ever heard that wonderful quote by Maya Angelou?

18rus20jezsttjpg

That’s what I mean by Evolution. As we begin to know better, we learn to DO better — this is the process of evolving your health. And THIS is why we need to learn how to tap into our INTUITION — how to listen deeply to what our bodies are telling us. When we are in tune with our bodies, we know how to feed ourselves for optimal, whole health. All decisions become easier when we listen — how/when to exercise, life/relationship choices, and how to handle situations that come up, etc.

What Does WHOLISTIC HEALTH Mean?

Wholistic Health

Wholistic health (holistic=wholistic) is when we take into account the WHOLE picture of the Self (body, mind, emotions, past trauma, childhood, life circumstances, etc.) as opposed to just seeking a quick “fix” for the symptoms we are experiencing. When we just look for the “band-aid”, then we never get to the root of the problem. Our bodies are smart. When you go for the quick-fix, the body will find another way to let you know about the real problem. If you’re not paying attention, you might think that you have yet another unrelated issue, but in fact, it’s coming from the same source that never got addressed.

Why We Need to Learn to Listen…

Looking for the “band-aid” is how modern allopathic medicine works. In most cases when a person goes to an average doctor, they are diagnosed according to their presenting symptoms without any regard for mental/emotional stresses and without looking at how they are caring for their health, wholistically. This model is how we get into BIG trouble when it comes to our health. Band-aid after band-aid usually, eventually, leads to long-term meds, which are NEVER good for the body long-term, and the saddest part is that it’s unavoidable. When we learn to LISTEN, we take our health into our own hands and we know how to help the body HEAL itself. Someone else will never be able to know what works for you in the way that you do. This is why it’s of the utmost importance to hone your inner compass!

MamaWise Workshop

This is something I am SUPER Passionate about! As women, we get to experience so many of the BEST parts of mothering, but it’s so common to lose ourselves in the process.

By putting our Selves, our passions, our dreams, and LIVES on hold, we are NOT doing a service to those around us!

It’s a myth!! BEING A MARTYR SERVES NO ONE!

In this 1 hour workshop, I’ll show you how to prioritize YOU — why it NEEDS to be NON-NEGOTIABLE (especially as a caretaker) and How to Make it EASY!!!

What’s Your Trajectory?

This is a serious question I have for you. Just to be clear, let me explain what I mean. Whatever your daily/weekly habits are — and by that I mean your habitual thoughts, the things you take in (not just food, but what you see, taste, touch, feel, etc.), what you do with your time, energy, and money, the people you surround yourself with, etc. — these things define you. They define who you are and how you are showing up in your life, but they also define where you are going. That’s what I mean by “trajectory.”

IMG_4150You see, whether you (or I) are conscious of it, or not, we tend to keep doing/saying/thinking the same things day after day. People don’t mean to choose to be stagnant, but without regular “big picture” thinking and without learning how to evolve the way we spend our time/energy/money, chances are we aren’t going anywhere we haven’t already been.

It can feel difficult to change. As I just mentioned, “know-how” is often a factor, but another lesser talked about cause of stagnation is an attachment to how things are. There can be a comfort in the pain, as in maybe it “seems” more comfortable to stay stuck where you are than to trade it for something you don’t even know if you can achieve. This is NOT the voice of Truth, or even the voice of Reason (because, no doubt, Reason would say, “You’ve been here and you know this isn’t going anywhere. You’d be better off trying something different, and fast!“). This is the voice of Self-Doubt, and in order to conquer it, I suggest IGNORING IT, because entertaining it gets you absolutely NOWHERE FAST and the more you listen, the more it talks! Seriously! At each new stage of our growth, there is resistance. This will not change.

Growth may not always be “comfortable”, but everything that you crave so deeply (and is your birthright!) — Wholeness, Ease, Vitality, Freedom, Pleasure, Connection, Time for Yourself, Vibrant Health, and Joy — is on the other side of that resistance. The other side of fear.

I was in South Dakota for a Yoga Health Coaching retreat a couple weeks ago. We talked about Evolution a LOT! My teacher talked about how there are three basic trajectories for people — one that is narrowing, one that is stagnant, and one that is ever-expanding. Let me explain…

  1. Many people get more and more narrow in their trajectory throughout their lives — not intentionally, but it happens.  How many people do you know that are walking around as a lesser version of themselves than when you first knew them? Most of our planet, I’m sure! That’s kind of the common knowledge that’s put out, right? Over time, you get older, lamer, less fun, your health dwindles, and your heading towards the grave. Am I right (I mean about the message we receive)? It’s not TRUE at all, but that’s what most people expect (sadly), and that belief/expectation becomes their self-fulfilling prophecy.
  2. In the stagnant trajectory, we stay kind of dumb to the intelligence of our physiology and our potential. There’s just no real progression in our lives. We experience dis-EASE as a consequence for our habits that don’t serve us, but we make no changes.
  3. And then we have my personal favorite — the Expanding Spiral! When we are on this trajectory, we continue to learn from our mistakes, tap into the wisdom of our physiology, LEAN INTO our GROWING EDGES and actually LIVE OUR EVER-GROWING POTENTIAL!

 If we don’t say YES to wanting more and invest in new ways of growing, then we will keep doing the same thing we’ve always done.

Reclaim Your Life & Body! 5 Day Challenge

Reclaim Your Life IG

Reclaim Your Life! So many of us women are caught up in the “busyness” of day-to-day life that we’ve lost touch with our dreams and our intuition. Instead of experiencing joy, we are in a constant state of overwhelm and burnout.

Not only is this terrible for our overall health (mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically), but YOU DESERVE BETTER! I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but…You Can’t Pour From an Empty Cup!

In the wise words of Ella Fitzgerald, “Somethin’s Gotta Give!”

Whether you are suffering from BURNOUT because you’re overworked, FATIGUE from overwhelm, “MOMMY-BRAIN” from always mult-tasking and sleep-deprivation, or a LOSS of HOPE in your life, THIS CHALLENGE WAS MADE FOR YOU!

I want to give you tools to help you expand time, increase energy, tap into your intuition and potential, and get back to LIVING A LIFE YOU LOVE in a BODY YOU LOVE! 

Ready to Join my 5 Day Challenge? What are you waiting for?!
We start Monday!
