That mess is super contagious…Toxicity causes disease, depression, anger anxiety…all that! Toxicity is like cancer if you feed it it’ll grow!
Starve it so it can go eat off somebody else’s plate. Your allowed to say no to protect your peace, sometimes its all you have left after life beats you down.
If your in a toxic situation please get out. Stress really is the silent killer that leads to all kinds of other serious medical complications. One would be just due to overly stressful situations your body floods with cortisol eating you alive from the inside out. This process leads to chronic inflammation Chronic inflammation leads to disease.
Hi my name is Shamara and I am addicted to feeling good using a Diffuser & essential oils nice to meet you. Xoxo
So smells are my new thing and I thought I would share because sharing means caring, right? Essential oils are absolutely soul cleansing for those with built up stress, anxiety, pain, dealing with negative people or environments & so on…just let it go my friend!! My very first experience I was hooked #onehellofadrug
Prescribed pills never made me feel this great, plus the side effects were all positive ones.
Falling asleep naturally
More patience with my kids
Ability to stay positive
Better decision making abilities
Less need for prescription meds
So as I was saying what do you have to loose?
Let me testify right here and now…hop scotch butterscotch makes me hungry but it also satisfies my sweet tooth I struggle with. Peppermint oil helps with multiple levels of pain. Rose oil regulates my skin and gets rid of blotches if you know what I mean it is also a great astringent for all skin types. Rosemary oil is another one I use for pain such ad headaches. Black pepper would be another pain reliever but for things like broken bones.
Tea tree oil cleared up my acne in only a couple days and it’s a natural at destroying bacteria. Pink grapefruit oil along with cinnamon oil helped me loose inches around my abdomen. Slim oil boosted my metabolism rather quickly. Orange and eucalyptus oil give me my morning pick me up like coffee but without the jitters. I also recently started making my own combination blends & I do have a favorite blend I like to call liquid xanax. I use it the most, especially over the last 6 months we have become very close, literally!! I don’t leave home without that or my mask!
I have a blend that cures cold & flu, allergies, asthma attacks, ect. A blend for rashes, to heal wounds, pinkeye, ect. I create my own lotions and perfumes using essential oils. I use oils in my laundry and in my cleaning supplies. I sprinkle oil on my rug and it helps keep my dog calm. Lavender cured my insomnia and my exzema as well as helped my hair grow. Multiple essential oils benefit the aging process and get rid of greys. Lemon oil faded my dark spots on my face beautifully. I can go on and it’s only been 2 years since aromatherapy changed my entire life! I got my Associates Degree in essential oil mixology because I love it so much!
Purchase a Diffuser for every room in your home…
Your home should be your sanctuary and if it’s not make it one!! Everyone needs a place to feel calm and relaxed. Ever been to a spa and didn’t want to leave, like ever?? That’s how my home is. lol As soon as you walk in my door the relaxing fragrance of lavender hits you were it feels good. I purchased 4 of my diffusers from Amazon and one from Scentsy. My Scentsy one was over $100 and works just the same as my affordable Amazon ones. My kids have fun ones in their rooms and they love playing with fragrances, they too get stressed.
I will give you a list of 13 symptoms negative energy causes and yes it is contagious if your around it long enough!
Difficulty breathing, S.O.B.
Feeling off or cloudy headed
Cold and flu type symptoms
We all know people who go around zapping positive energy from others…
Have you ever been having the best day ever and someone just comes along and ruins it as soon as you see them? They just look like attitude in the dictionary without the picture! Ugh!!!
Many people who we love and allow in our lives drain us and we don’t even realize it. Since this corona virus I have had to be in my home with negative energy people surrounding me. My room is my sanctuary so I purchased a rock from Amazon that is known for clearing out negative energies. Of course I researched it and discovered I was not alone in my feelings.
I will admit I am new to this so I honestly purchased it because I figured what will it hurt and it went with my room decor “bonus.”
I noticed my health started to suffer the consequences…
With that being said I was stressed out, my insomnia was out of control, everyone was complaining, I was short on food, I had to home school my kids, shall I continue? Believe me ya’ll don’t want my problems and I don’t want yours. I feel like everyone should keep negative energy and comments to themselves.
What I am trying to say is…
Sometimes you have to live in situations that hurt you and if you are one of these people at least try to do things that will help benefit your mental state. I will list some examples for you.
Purchase a essential oil diffuser
Get daily exercise
Take a relaxing bath with essential oils and epsom salt
Talk to some one who will listen
Take a walk with a friend “girl talk”
Get a pen pal you can tell everything to and will never meet lol
Read the bible if your religious or spiritual
Find a book you can get lost in and get lost
Join a group that is related to your struggles so you know your not alone
Purchase a energy generator for your home
Clean your home, rid it of clutter
Go camping and become one with nature
Create a playlist of songs that make your mood better
Go on you tube and find calming music, now take a nap
Write a letter to someone you cant stand but never mail it
Go in a closet and scream…it really helps
Enjoy a movie night with your family…positive vibes invites only
Go on a walk paying special attention to nature (the sounds, the animals, take nice deep breaths)
Take an online class to feed your brain knowledge “if you don’t use it you’ll loose it”
Create a Pinterest account and browse helpful solutions for your problem
Create a list of positive affirmations you can tell yourself upon waking and every night
Help people in need it just does something to the spirit
Create a list of things you want to change in your life
Create a goal list and give yourself realistic times to complete each goal
Are you giving off negative energy??!
Sometimes we are the problem and don’t even realize it. I was raised with negative people and it rubbed off on me. I was such a happy upbeat person who loved to laugh but when around certain ones I became Debby Downer real fast. One day a close friend of mine pointed it out and I realized I had work to do! Here are some examples of negativity disease & people just carry it with them spreading it everywhere.
People who work late normally hate it so they give off negative energy
People who complain about any and everything
People who exhibit jealous traits
People quick to anger
People with complicated living arrangements
People on drugs or those who drink alcohol
People who compare themselves to others
People with chaotic schedules
People diagnosed with depression
People who tend to be highly emotional
People with multiple kids and no real help
People who absolutely hate their jobs
People who don’t clean their homes
People who live on social media
People who tend to stay in doors and don’t get natural Vitamin D
People who brag about helping others
People who get upset when you tell them to pray
People who have excuses for everything wrong they do
People who play the blame game and can never admit fault
People who think they are superior to others
If I rang a “Ding” “Ding” bell continue reading…
As you can see these people are all around us. If you have people like this anywhere but in your home avoid them at all cost. Now if these people live with you, you may want to think about changing up your living situation real soon. I understand you have love for these types of people but you can love lions, tigers, and bears yet understand you shouldn’t bring them into your home. In some cases the people that hurt you the worst are your kids, no worries they are your kids. You can retrain them to be positive by allowing it to reflect in your daily life. Negativity can be reversed it is all learned behavior. Only you are in control of your destiny and happiness. You may not begin your story but you do have a choice to create your own ending.
Back to the topic at hand…
Check out the Energy Generator I purchased off Amazon that helped me become a believer! I keep it in my bedroom and nobody is really allowed to hang out in there but me and my man. You can rest assured if someone brings in their negative energy this stone will absorb it!!
Should you decide to make a purchase from Amazon I will receive a small commission at no cost to you at all, thank you so much for your support and please let me know how it works for you. I love success and healing stories…xoxo
Orgone pyramid helps to neutralize electronic smog (EMF) from cell phones, cell phone towers, wi-fi, computers and electronic devices that you expose yourself to on a daily basis.The interaction of organic resin and inorganic metal creates orgone.
Healing Chakra condensed metal matrix that includes a combination of quartz crystal and other energy clearing crystals and stones that absorb negative energies and transmutes them into positive forces that stimulate the body to heal itself.
The crystals and stones have been charged with positive intentions prior to casting. They have also been smudged with energy clearing white sage. Smudging is an ancient Native American tradition used to cleanse negative energy. The Orgonite are infused with harmonic tones during the curing process that help balance the body’s natural frequency.
Large amounts of positive energy. By simply holding or being near these devices you will feel large amounts of positive energy.
Wherever you place the orgonite they keep the air and life force in the home clean and positive. Besides this is a great centerpiece for a spa, yoga studio, float center, business or home environment. Although They can be placed anywhere you want to clear ambient energy!
I had never ever in my life known about them until very recently. I had been having a hard time with family, friends, my boss, ok… just people in general. I’m spiritual not religious so I began researching Healing Crystal’s. A good friend of mine swore by them and seemed to be doing better than me as far as anxiety, stress, and depression go. I figured what will it possibly hurt?
My entire mind set changed. I began to become more positive instead of negative, my insomnia disappeared, my pain became tolerable, I was able to forgive those who hurt me, I felt like my entire life had a purpose…I could finally breath again.
If this is something you feel may benefit you I encourage you to research more about how to use them. I’m only a beginner I purchased mine off of Amazon. Should you decide to go this route, I’ll receive a small commission at no extra cost to you “thanks for your support.” Please share your thoughts or experiences I’d love to hear all about them!!! Lets uplift each other, support each other, & have compassion for what others are going through. Xoxo
So I don’t know about you guys but my body decided to pack on pounds while I was in the house stressed out watching the news. I was snacking without thought, preparing meals without measuring ingredients, and my insomnia was working overtime. No sleep means no weightloss or healing for the body. I know we are all on different levels when it comes to fitness but I’m focused on beginners at this time because they will be impacted the most! Check out my suggestions for getting your body back into a state of calmness and your metabolism out of hiding.
This is the Beginner Bodyweight Workout (3 Circuits):
20 Bodyweight squats.
10 Walking lunges (each leg).
10 Dumbbell rows (use a milk jug or other weight).
15 Second Plank.
30 Jumping jacks.
You will do each exercise in succession without a break in between (if you’re able).
Once you’ve finished all exercises in the circuit, do it again.
If you’re still able after the 2nd run through, go for a third if not you’ll work your way up to a third set.
Before you start, don’t forget to do a warm up– Make sure to get your heart rate pumping and get your muscles warmed or you’re just begging for an injury.
You can run in place, jump rope, do a few push-ups, pedal on a stationary bike, do some punches and kicks, jog up and down your stairs, and/or twist and swing your arms and legs to get them moving!
“HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO THESE WORKOUTS”
Do this routine 2-3 times a week, but never on consecutive days as the body gets used to daily routines & you will loose progress .
You don’t build muscle when you’re exercising, it’s actually when you’re resting, so try not to do a strength training routine (of the same muscle groups) two days in a row.
I like to follow a training pattern of:
Strength training on one day…
20 minutes of interval training the next.
Strength training again…
Then back to my interval training or rest!
Then comes the progress I wanted to see!!
Here’s some suggestions for additional weightloss…
Playing outdoor games with kids
Walking instead of driving
Play at the park
Take the dog for a longer walk or an additional walk
Dance like nobodies watching
Get a massage
Get more sleep
Take a healthy cooking class
Try new healthy recipies
Have a date night
Create a buddy bootcamp
Jump on a trampoline
Have a scavenger hunt
Sign up for a race
Challenge friends to healthy competitions
Ride a bike
Create a food diary for yourself
Stop weighing yourself its depressing
Focus on how your clothes fit
Limit sugar to 15g per day
Drink lots of water
Use essential oils for weightloss
Create a daily routine where exercise is always incorporated
Limit the amount of meat you consume
Avoid dairy it makes you fat like it does cows
Eat healthy fats such as avocado
Avoid negative people
Avoid stereotypes your bodies unique
Always strive to look and feel healthy
Control emotional eating
Incorporate smoothies into your daily routine
Create a designated workout area
Purchase game systems that encourage physical activity such as the Wii or xbox connect
Plan your workouts around when your most energized
So many emotions, what’s going to happen, how will I afford my bill’s, how can I boost my immune system??
The three biggest questions being asked in today’s society. I would at least like to give you 10 ways to stay positive that may help you with all 3 situations.
Exercise– getting enough exercise will help you with your weight and stress management. Be sure to also make sure your children are getting adequate exercise as well. Turn on a workout video or play an interactive game as a family. Photo by Jermaine Ulinwa on Pexels.com[/caption]
Drink smoothies– right now boosting the immune system would be the wisest thing you can do. Use powder supplements the body can easily absorb when you can. If taking prescription meds please be careful with supplements speak to a doctor. Photo by Daria Shevtsova on Pexels.com[/caption]
Stay on top of your mental health– if your not good for yourself your not good for nobody…be patient with yourself if you’re having a tough time. Put on some relaxing music and take a lavender bath with Epsom salt & grapeseed oil, light a candle, and unwind. Keep a notebook to track your mood, eating, water intake, & workouts.

Be honest with all financial companies-Companies right now are aware of what’s going on in the world and really do want to help. You can’t hide create a list of your finances you can’t afford, call the companies and see what they can offer you at this time. What don’t kill you just makes you stronger so take it one day at a time! This too shall pass… Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com[/caption]
Stay in touch with loved ones via phone, Skype, zoom, etc. -Now is not the time to be being upset with those you call family. Call your loved ones, check on them, tell them that you love them, and miss them. Reminisce on some good times and enjoy some great laughs! Create memories that will still last a lifetime. Being positive is the only way to be right now, for yourself & those around you! Photo by Edward Jenner on Pexels.com[/caption]
Get fresh air– Fresh air is required…whether its sitting on the porch, stepping outside, or opening all your windows. We need fresh air, water, and food hence again “fresh air” to survive. Inside the home the air gets stale and that can negatively affect your mood. Photo by VisionPic .net on Pexels.com[/caption]
Invest in a diffuser– A diffuser & essential oils is a great way to keep your mind and body at ease without prescription drugs or in addition to. Essential oils help with pain, anxiety & weightloss. Photo by Mã Minh on Pexels.com[/caption]
Keep a schedule of kids’ school information, assignment sheets, important numbers, etc– I always create my own sheet or binder for easy access to my children’s important school assignments, teachers, dates, etc. but that’s just me. Do it for your mental clarity because nothing’s more frustrating than looking for a number, name, assignment, “anything” so don’t do it to yourself. Photo by Gerd Altmann on Pexels.com[/caption]
Make sure everyone has a chore to do at home to keep things clean & organized– functioning mentally in a mess is dang near impossible for most people. Don’t yell every day, clean up after them, or keep reminding those kids to clean… just give them a job and a schedule. When you go to work you know your job because somebody trained you or gave you a schedule to follow and you remembered it. Photo by Breakingpic on Pexels.com[/caption]
Create for yourself a support system of resources you can use if you need them– A beneficial resource list right now would be gold to the average person. At this time the world is in need of help but to have a personal list of important resources at your fingertips is only smart. Say for example you’re going over your budget and you can’t make your car payment next month. Instead of panicking you grab your list of companies that will help financially, call them up, & allow your anxiety to remain at bay. The reason for any list is always to make things easier in the end. I’d rather be smart from the very start because it also will depend on how your ending plays out…
The struggle to get to your weightloss destination been a rocky road?
Let me just tell you this… I tried every weightloss drink, pill, rub, diet, etc. It really is no fun being big for no reason. I had no prior medical problems at the time just a pesky, annoying, influential sweet tooth surrounded by sweet lips.
The first step to any weightloss goal is be honest with yourself. What is truly holding you back? It’s you…correct? Nobody here but us two so let’s keep it real. Some people attempting weightloss like to make huge plates while others snack all throughout the day non-stop, others love to eat out way to much and then you have your impulse eaters who watch food shows or see fattening food commercials online and can’t resist making or buying it.
We all have our own sad story that placed us in an unhealthy state. Food makes you feel better, sugar plays on our brain like heroin causing what we believe is a much needed feeling of happiness! In reality those hormones of ours aren’t very smart and they don’t know nor care if we eat healthy good for you foods or drugs. At the time of ingestion it just can’t wait for the release of happy hormones.
Afterwards the long term effects cause suffering, pain, depression, anxiety, anger, the blame game and then eventually regret.
When a person is stressed out sometimes they choose to “stress eat” and that’s not what food is for. After stuffing your face the adrenal glands release the steroid hormone we call cortisol. Beware of Adrenal Burnout!
Cortisol is the body’s primary stress hormone, and it plays a very huge role in many bodily functions, including controlling blood sugar levels. Life is stressful so controlling our levels are important for our mental health.
The body relies on effective communication between the following three parts of the body to release the correct amount of cortisol:
the adrenal gland
the pituitary gland
the hypothalamus (which is part of the brain)
Between them, they stimulate the production of cortisol when the body needs it and block it when the levels need to drop back down. Well that’s what it does in a normal brain. In an unhealthy brain “mental health problems” it malfunctions like a computer with a virus that can crash any second.
Both too much and too little cortisol can have an adverse effect on the body.
High cortisol level symptoms
Excess cortisol could result from a tumor or as a side effect of some medications.
Too much cortisol can lead to Cushing’s syndrome. Symptoms include:
a flushed face
urinating more frequently
changes in mood, such as feeling irritable or low
rapid weight gain in the face and abdomen
bruises or purple stretch marks appearing on the skin
decreased sex drive
Some people may also find that their periods become irregular or stop altogether.
Too much cortisol can also cause other conditions and symptoms, including:
high blood pressure
type 2 diabetes
impaired brain function
Low cortisol level symptoms
Too little cortisol could cause Addisons Disease & this condition includes:
gradual weight loss
changes in mood
areas of the skin turning darker
low blood pressure
Dopamine is a chemical found naturally in the human body. It is a neurotransmitter, meaning it sends signals from the body to the brain.
Dopamine plays a critical, vital, & essential part in controlling the movements a person makes, as well as their emotional responses. The correct balance of dopamine is vital for both physical and mental wellbeing as well as weightloss.
Your brain functions that affect your mood, your sleep, your memory, your learning, concentration, and motor control are influenced by the levels of dopamine in your body. A dopamine deficiency causes certain medical conditions such as depression. Depression slows metabolism therefore making weightloss dang near impossible for some.
A dopamine deficiency can be caused by a sudden drop in the amount of dopamine made by the body or a problem with the receptors in the brain.
The symptoms of a dopamine deficiency depend on the underlying cause. For example, a person with Parkinson’s disease will experience very different symptoms from someone with low dopamine levels due to prescription abuse, illegal drug abuse, or an obese person with a sugar addiction.
Some signs and symptoms of conditions related to a dopamine deficiency include:
muscle cramps, spasms, or tremors
aches and pains
stiffness in the muscles
loss of balance
difficulty eating and swallowing
weight loss or weight gain
gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
trouble sleeping or disturbed sleep
an inability to focus
moving or speaking more slowly than usual
feeling inexplicably sad or tearful
having low self-esteem
suicidal thoughts or thoughts of self-harm
low sex drive
lack of insight or self-awareness
It is also thought that drug abuse can affect dopamine levels. Studies have shown that repeated drug use could alter the thresholds required for dopamine cell activation and signalling.
Damage caused by drug abuse means these thresholds are higher and therefore it is more difficult for a person to experience the positive effects of dopamine. Drug abusers have also been shown to have significant decreases in dopamine D2 receptors and dopamine release.
Diets high in sugar and saturated fats can suppress dopamine, and a lack of protein in a person’s diet could mean they do not have enough l-tyrosine, which is an amino acid that helps to build dopamine in the body.
Healthy weightloss here I come!
So one day I’m at work & one of my patients say “so Shamara why haven’t you told me your pregnant, I see how big your getting and I wanna know when the baby’s coming.”
I wanted to die so I said the only thing I could think of at that time that would make him “worry about himself”🤬I said O I had twins & lost them🤷🏾♀️ “don’t judge me” I was so embarrassed but It was my fault and I should have been! I immediately started going to the gym, making green smoothies and watching what I placed in my body plus nothing after 8 PM.
Weightloss results what a beautiful thing
So who would have known, I lost weight! I saw results! I felt great! I guess it’s *TRUE* “you are what you eat” and your brain will remind your body to make you feel like it too. I was able to fit into my old cute outfits I just couldn’t part with.
I love my brain but it is so two faced turning on me everytime it gets used to my current weight. I fluctuate so we been through this time & time again now we finally have a great understanding. I actually had to rewire it “mind over matter” and my body, my health, and my love of life mattered.
So your body is meant to go into survival mode if and when you restrict food, calories, fat, etc.
Once in survival mode the brain sends messages through the body to “store as much fat as possible.” Say you don’t eat breakfast, have a salad for lunch then thereafter you have a smoothie. The brain says “hey we needs all of that” your body then stores it all even though it’s not much.
The next example…your super hungry and you eat waffles, pizza, then for dinner you eat subway. First of all “you know your wrong” second of all the brain gets all excited & orders the body again to store it as fat, I mean it’s bossy & petty but very important! It’s on a mission to collect all the fat it can to protect you, then that leads to obesity, disease, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, imbalanced hormones and many other problems.
