Choosing Health - My Breast Implant Illness Journey

I feel like a new person. Especially after this past week. For years I have tried diet after diet to lose the weight that crept on slowly, pound after pound. And it was not stopping, no matter what I did. It was discouraging to say the least because I felt horrible, exhausted, and sick all the time.

Just over 10 weeks ago I had my breast implants removed and since then my body has slowly changed for the better. And then this past Sunday I cut out processed and refined sugars (did this several times when I had implants and it did not help). From there, I have literally watched my body rapidly change as if the weight is just melting off.

And all the health issues I have had for years, some of them beginning shortly after the augmentation, have begun dissipating ⤵️ 

▪️heart palpitations
▪️unable to take a deep breath
▪️extra weight
▪️metallic taste in mouth
▪️panic attacks
▪️anxiety (not gone, but much less)
▪️exhaustion from the moment I woke
▪️chest pains
▪️back pain
▪️numb face, neck, and hands

Those are some of the worst issues and they are either gone completely or are much less debilitating. Today I feel the best that I have felt in years and the one thing I have removed is those toxic bags. It is not a coincidence. God, I am so grateful for the Facebook groups that walked me through this, along with my wonderful sister πŸ’ž I am a different person then I was 3 months ago.

I am looking forward to the next decade's possibilities! Yes, even during isolation because I refuse to stop living after so many years of feeling like I was dying. Life can continue from the comfort of my home and yard and even then I can bring magic into the world πŸ₯°πŸ₯‚

Stay safe and healthy, my friends!

Finding the Calm in this Storm

From the perspective of someone who believes in the Divine, but doesn't define it as a vengeful god judging us from the clouds, I am 100% on board with this.

As a collective, we are waking up to a higher frequency and way of thinking. Our reality is shifting. We have asked for our eyes to be opened and THAT is exciting. But how it is now appearing to us, was not expected. Coming from fear is natural and a human tendency that should not be shamed. This is real and it is frightening, especially since we feel we have no control. 

What has helped me to shift how I see our present circumstances is first by slowing down and researching information from the CDC and WHO, along with the doctors and nurses who are really seeing what is happening. Yes, even that can create fear, but knowledge is power and knowing WHAT we are facing and how to slow the spread can also be empowering. I refuse to listen to the media and the people who are forwarding unsourced information. 

My other source of calmness has been my personal connection to the Divine and staying tuned into that frequency through meditation, chanting, and prayer. Years ago I turned my back on all belief in a higher power and I felt the bitterness consuming my heart, but when I discovered my own connection has nothing to do with religion or anyone else's beliefs, I was able to build up a spiritual foundation that was all my own. I have not looked back since and my connection is stronger then ever. It has also been my solid strength during this time of uncertainty.

And then, dancingπŸ’ƒ let the endorphins flood through me!

Take a breath. Slow down. Listen to what our Source is communicating to us. This won't be easy and when we are on the other end, the new normal will not be what it was before. But we have this. We can choose how we react and that my friends, is our power in these trying times.

I'm sending my love to all of the world. Blessed be, my friends πŸ™πŸ’žπŸ§˜‍♀️
