My schedule has been hectic lately and I originally created this blog to share about health related topics and what we can eat or do during our day that is going to benefit our lifestyle choices. I may not post here as often as I like but I'm aiming for more. This is more of a 'fun' 'giving back' idea that I wanted to do. This Blog gave me another purpose in life. I don't have too many ads on here maybe just three or four. I'm actually just focused on sharing my experience and coping with the hard times by writing. I love reading and I've always loved writing.
Before starting this Blog I experienced some heavy heartache within my family. My mom is her own unique and beautiful person, inside and out. We had a mother-daughter relationship for 30 years. There were good days and there were bad days. It's not a black and white story and my family dynamics have changed. It made me stronger because of it. We question ourselves how we could have done things differently and made things better after the fact? ... and now it's too late. My parents did their best to stay together and ultimately their love just dwindled away, which led to a divorce. Mainly because my brother has taken complete control over my mom and put himself in the middle of my parents fiasco, he was never grateful or thankful for anything. I just turned 34 and I haven't been able to communicate with her since I was 30. It was very heartbreaking for me to lose my mother. She is here on Earth yet I can't have a relationship with her.
Eventually my mom cut off all communication with me, thinking that I was choosing sides between her and my Dad. I don't blame her because my brother is the one who made her believe this. It took me three years to finally accept it and I miss her dearly and I wish I can help her. Shortly after she stopped communication with me. I experienced a death of a close family member, and then three months after that a death of a close friend. My support system left me dry and I didn't know who I can turn to. My Dad of course but then again he's not a woman. After this dark and gloomy period, I began to question my life and my purpose here on Earth. I was extremely depressed (medically) and although no one in my family knew, I just cried a lot when I was alone; Every day. I never gave up on exercising cause it made me feel better. I adopted my dog, Rocco, and I look at it as we both saved each other. I needed a companion... AND THIS is where my Blog came into place.
With that said this past year I rekindled my faith with God and accepted Jesus in my heart. I prayed everyday sometimes a few times a day. I asked for God's help, for my strength in my emotions, and for his healing power to uplift me and make be believe he was by-my-side. I began listening to Christian talk radio, Christian music, attending church on a weekly basis and I noticed opportunities arising in my favor, and I started to see the proof. The proof of the Holy Spirit and how he WAS there with me. He never left me, he just waited for me to come to him.
This led me to confide in a friend that I knew was a firm believer in the Messiah, and she led me to a healer who heals from within. I was also 'gifted' with a virus that is incurable in the Doctors world but I knew there was a cure. I'm healing naturally by following a strict food plan, and providing the herbs and seeds that God created on this Earth. So for the past six months I have been on a strict PLANT-BASED ROUTINE. I CUT OUT ALL CAFFEINE, ALCOHOL, MEAT, AND DAIRY. It was hell during the first week not going to lie. This man is also a believer in God and has helped me to stay focused. "Stay focused Shelly, you need to stay focused." And so I did.
After four months of nourishing my body with the natural minerals and herbs and veggies and fruits from our Earth, I noticed a change in my way of thinking. I noticed my depression going away, I noticed my love for others increasing, my love for God increasing. And then I began to realize certain people who were a part of my life that WEREN'T helping me, they weren't supporting me, or offering me a solution to my problems. But rather what can I do for them. I was a giver. So much so it broke me down because I didn't receive anything in return. I eliminated and/or avoided these people. Not only is he curing me of my virus, this food plan has cured my depression, it has uplifted my spirits and I finally feel that God is blessing me and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I can't thank him enough!
Almost six months later I am now on an ALKALINE PLANT BASED DIET. Doing an intra-cellular cleanse bringing my body back to a homeostasis state. I am no longer depressed and I've never been this happy. I'm focused, I have mental clarity, and I know what makes me happy and what doesn't. I'm not the type of person to give up, I'm the type to find a cure, to find help. For myself and for my family. It is our personal choice after all to know ourselves well enough on how we can HEAL from within.
