Mantra Monday-“I Am Vibrantly Healthy”

Last week I felt, well, not myself. But, I was not sick. I never am.

I remember when I was growing up, my mom would never utter the words “I am sick.” She would say she did not believe that and did not accept it. If she felt less than her best, she would start resting, drinking more water and healing herself naturally. She would start proclaiming “I Am Healed!.” I thought she was looney, but like most things I thought were looney about my mother, I am now doing the same things in my 30s.

I have a pretty strong immune system (also thanks to my mother), but I am working at a new school site this year. Middle schoolers germs seem to be effecting me more than high schoolers did and towards the end of the week, my throat was sore and body was achy. But, I was not sick. No way. I started proclaiming myself “Vibrantly Healthy” and took steps to get myself back there.

I Am Vibrantly Healthy I now understand why my mom would not resign to sickness or even utter the words. She was a single-working mother and had no time to be sick. She did not ignore her health and carry on as though things were normal, she spoke healing into her body and aligned her actions to match. I try to do the same.

I begin diffusing doTerra’s “Breathe” blend throughout my house to clear my sinuses and help my cough. I made a “wellness shot” tea my dropping doTerra’s “On-Guard” blend, lemon, ginger and oregano oil into hot water. I drank this about four times per day. It by no means tastes good, but I felt it decongesting my head and strengthening my body.

I also made a wellness blend of the above listed oils blended with fractioned coconut oil. I rubbed this on my feet multiple times throughout the day.

I also honored that my body needed more rest. At 5:00 PM on Friday night, I sent Ed this picture of myself. I laid in bed and read, and was asleep by 7:00 that evening and 8:00 the next.

I am not sick

I feel almost completely back to myself today and alive in my vibrant health.

What are your remedies for when you feel less than your best?

  1. The beginning of this reminds me of the whole “positive thinking” philosophy that was around at the beginning of the last century, which you see in Christian Science.

    Im fond of megadoses of vitamin C myself. And hot liquids. And deliberate doses of fresh air.
