Digestive Bliss through Small Intestine!

Through the Freedom Code session (emotion releasing technique) I have become aware that my small intestine could use some support. Empowered with this information I utilized all the tools in my holistic wellness tool box and went to work!

A LITTLE ABOUT SMALL INTESTINE

I first started to read about small intestine and what it does and quickly came to realize that the majority of digestion happens in our small intestine. Since it’s such a big part of our digestive process, supporting it would improve overall digestion and nutrient absorption. I encourage you to read about the function of your small intestine to educate yourself and get better understanding of how our body works.

DIET CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS

We all know that the food we eat has a huge impact on our overall wellness. Diet is the first place to look into for digestive support. Eating a clean diet high in complex, essential fatty acids ad minerals and low in sugary baked goods and acid-producting foods is essential for intestinal health. But even with great diets, we are sometimes lacking the nutrients and enzymes needed for great digestion. Probiotics and digestive enzymes have been great supplements for supporting my digestive system. As well as essential oils that support healthy digestion. I get all my oils and my supplements from Young Living – CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO!

YOGA POSES TO SUPPORT SMALL INTESTINE

Once I knew my diet was the best I could do and I was supplementing with probiotics and enzymes, I went to search for yoga poses to support the small intestine and came across this article and loved the poses suggested. https://myogastudio.ch/yin-yoga-small-intestine-meridian-poses/ I practiced the poses and realized that since small intestine meridian runs through our arms and our shoulders, these poses would be great shoulder openers as well. I created this VIDEO to share what I learned and demonstrate the poses.

OILS, CHAKRAS AND AFFIRMATIONS FOR SMALL INTESTINE

Now diving deeper into small intestine wellness! Every organ vibrates at a certain frequency. When the frequency of the organ goes down due to diet or any other variables, that’s when all these wonderful modalities come into raise the vibrations. The small intestine is supported by Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras. When it’s out of balance you might experience a lack of compassion, charity, lack of hope. When it’s in balance you will experience gut feelings, compassion, love, hope, and source of power.

Oils and supplements to support the small intestine are DiGize, Joy, Hope, Harmony, Purification, Sensation, Peppermint and Fennel. The oils can be applied diluted topically or taken internally ONLY YOUNG LIVING VITALITY OILS CAN BE INGESTED! Supplements that support the small intestine are Comfortone, ICP, Essentialzyme and Inner Defense. YOU CAN GET YOURS HERE!

Affirmations to support the mindset and emotions associated with the small intestine are:

“I have faith, hope and charity”

“I listen to my gut feelings” – notice the connections between gut feelings and small intestine

“I know my source of power”

The POWER of the words we use

Each word we say or THINK (yup, think!!!) has power. It has the power to give life to new ideas, new mindsets, new opportunities or it has the power to discourage, hurt and even plant lies in our mind.

I have come across the term “Conscious Language” through a video I watched. What stood out to me is how a small shift in the words we use can create mindset shifts and that’s powerful. Our brain will believe ANYTHING we tell it, so why not tell it things we want to see in our lives?

First step is to start paying attention to the words or phrases you say without even thinking about it for example, “Things like this always happened to me”, “I am not good at technology”, “I wish I could afford that”, “I’m afraid we can’t do this” and any negative thoughts directed at ourselves “I am not creative”, “I can never be like…”, “I am ugly” etc.

This is not to say that now you are going to start saying words or phrases that are not true, it’s just the way we phrase them will change. For example replacing “I wish I could afford that” with “Every day I am getting closer and closer to my goal”, or “I am not good at technology” with “Every day I learn more and more about technology”, “I’m so stupid” with “I am learning through my experiences”. Give the brain HOPE! EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS POSSIBLE! But it all starts with our BELIEF that it’s possible and our words play a key role in that!

STEPS TO START CHANGING YOUR WORDING

1 – Begin to notice any phrases that you would like to replace.

2 – Replace them with a positive thought or use Google to find affirmations that can help you replace those thoughts.

3 – Try out the new wording and the new idea and adjust it until it feels right for you!

OILS TO USE TO HELP SHIFT THE MINDSET

Belief, Joy, Frankincense, Highest Potential, Sacred Mountain

Open your heart!

In yoga, heart-opening poses are not only beneficial for physical wellbeing but also for emotional healing! Think of phrases like “It hurt my heart”, “My heart felt heavy” etc. These are not just sayings, our heart is an amazing VITAL organ in our body and our overall wellness is dependent on it and therefore opening our heart and softening the general chest area is beneficial to our whole body wellness.

Our heart is associated with the feeling of love. Being able to show love and give love to those around us but also to ourselves. We also need to be able to receive love from those around us. But sometimes due to previous life experiences and the hurts that the heart experienced we choose to close it up. So how do we open it?

~YOGA POSES – heart-opening poses such as Cobra, Cow, Camel, Fish are great at opening the heart.
~AFFIRMATIONS – “I am worthy of the purest love”, “I release and let go of all resentment”, “I am loving to myself and others”, “There is an infinite supply of love”
~OILS – YLANG YLANG. Ylang Ylang is the oil of the heart. When inhaled it helps experience loving feelings towards yourself and others.  
~CRYSTALS/COLORS – Pink quartz is a great crystal to support the heart chakra. Also, the color of green is associated with the heart chakra.

Being aware of when you are experiencing the feelings of anger! What causes it? How do you deal with it? If you to be honest with yourself, it is most of the time due to some limiting belief you have about yourself!
