    My heart is heavy, and I feel like it is necessary to speak about mental health here on this platform in a way that is quite raw and real. The Living WOW Lifestyle was created as an alternative to the living SAD lifestyle that we default into with our culture and beliefs. It has evolved as an awareness of the choices you make on a daily basis from the foods you choose to consume or not, the self-care you make time for or don’t, the priority you give to your health and ultimately thriving. It’s learning to speak the language […]

    As we transition into the Autumn season the cooler temperatures and fall harvest cue us to begin transitioning and preparing for winter. Autumn is the season of change and preparation. Spring is a time of planting, Summer is massive growth, and now in the Fall you get to reap the benefits of all your hard work. Of course, that doesn’t mean the work is over, rather it is changing. We can take cues from nature and do the exact same thing in our lives. For me personally, this transition season has always been the most difficult season for me. I […]

    As we wrap up the 8 Systems Framework series it is worthwhile to point out that this final system is both external and internal. I include it in the 8 Systems Framework because it is impossible to separate yourself from or ignore the driving conditions completely. Additionally, for the most part, you have very little, if any, control over the driving conditions. With that said you must be aware of what they are and how they affect your vehicle and the journey so that you don’t end up in an accident or breakdown due to unsafe or undesirable conditions. I’ve […]

    Your body is telling you what it needs. Are you listening? Are you too busy to hear it? Do you know the language of your body? Are you experiencing deep fatigue? Irritable bowels, diarrhea, bloating, constipation? Headaches? Brain fog? Rashes? Do you have pain? Where at and what kind? Some symptoms may appear universal but actually can be specific and telling with your autoimmune disease. When you begin to understand what is happening in your body it speaks the answers that can help lead you to the underlying trigger. A personal example for me is an infection that I am […]

    I spoke briefly of the navigation system during the introduction of the Driver of System 5. Remember that the driver does what it is told with the purpose of getting you to your destination safely. But how do you know where to go? Your navigation system! Of course, you will see navigation helps all along the journey. This may be in the form of signs, maps, or even other drivers giving you information that was useful to them. What is unique and personal to you, however, is your personal navigation system. Your navigation system is beyond high-tech! Your navigation system […]

    Who is driving your vehicle? Well, your mind of course! Your mind is an interesting character because it is made up of both a physical organ, your brain, and an energetic intelligence that is eternal. I think of the mind as the bridge that connects the physical body and the energetic/spiritual body so that the 2 realms cross over and communicate in their respective roles. Now before you check out because I'm getting too woo-woo on you, consider "opening your mind" to the concepts, capabilities, and limitations of your mind as the driver of your car in the 8 systems […]

    Bonus Episode 9! The final episode in the 8 Lessons Lupus Taught Me: From Surviving To Thriving With Autoimmune Diseases bonus podcast series. This episode includes both the final Lesson 8: All You Need Is (Unconditional) Love and also (bonus within a bonus) the final chapter Closing Thoughts to wrap up the book.  This final lesson 8 is the most personal and difficult, even now. Maybe because it's the most important or maybe because I'm still refining. As I reflect, I think I first learned this lesson very close to home in my marriage. I share personal insights and the […]

    System 4 Oil relates to supplements in the human body. This is a system that is kind of a subsystem because it is related to your fuel but it's not the same as your fuel. You have to have oil to keep your engine working properly. It’s also part of maintenance because you have to change it routinely and which oil you use depends on your vehicle, much like your fuel and other required maintenance. Systems 2, 3, and 4 all have an interconnectedness but I break them out because they each have a different purpose, schedule, and focus. Oil […]

    What maintenance equates to for the human body is self-care and movement because that is how we keep our systems in tip-top shape. It's less intense or focused than nutrition because it's more routine and honestly easier to make excuses or let it go. If you think about your car you do routine maintenance every day. Your maintenance schedule is different based on the make, model, or age of your car. You wash it, you take the trash out, and you drive it within the parameters it was designed for. If it is an older model you may need to […]

    Bonus Episode 8! I use the butterfly to symbolize the transformation in my coaching practice. For me, the butterfly is symbolic of transformation. As I selected the butterfly for symbolism, I still felt very much like a caterpillar surviving, going around munching on leaves and crawling on the ground, literally just trying to survive. That period with my autoimmune diagnoses when I realized what I was dealing with and that the strategies that I had employed throughout my life for survival were in fact sabotaging me and making my health worse. That is when I realized that I needed to […]
