This past weekend, I co-hosted our 3rd annual Guns 'n Poses (yoga, health and wellness topics, and firearms instruction) event for our YL family. #memberperks Personal self care empowerment comes in many forms and it is something I deeply truly love about the Young Living lifestyle.....thru the application of what we learn from one another, we become more adept at being our own CEO of the temple that is our body.
My teaching topic for the event was frequency and how it relates to fear and how to raise your own frequency should you find it faltering. Fear is one of the lowest frequency emotions.
Here are a few tidbits to chew on:
⚡️ Frequency is a term that measures electricity. It's not hoo hoo stuff... it's physics and biology. If you've ever had an EEG or EKG the frequency of your heart or brain has been measured.
⚡️ Certain emotions drive the body's frequency up or down. High frequency emotions are Joy, Freedom, Love, Empowerment, Happiness, Enthusiasm (and many more). 😃
Low frequency emotions include worry, frustration, doubt, anger, guilt, and others....... including fear. 😱Fear (chronic or acute) is one of the most damaging of all emotions..... especially the chronic variety.
⚡️ Chronic fear is incredibly stressful to the body, and has been found to be equivalent to a pack of cigarettes a day habit.... not a place any of us wants our body to be in. Chronic fear is also quite hard on the immune system.
The Bible says.... over 365 times.... "fear not." We are to have a spirit of power, of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Tim 1:7) This is not simply a suggestion, it's also a health tip. 😉 We need to strive to live within the higher frequency emotions and feelings so that we may retain a sound and strong mind and body.
Lord knows this is something we need to be sharing far and wide right now! #2020hasbeenahotmess
Quick tips on raising your body's frequency:
⚡️ Work on getting your body more alkaline. (Fear and an acidic body tend to go hand in hand). Low voltage/frequency = low pH
Have you tried Alkalime (YL item #3199) ? It works to settle the belly, but it also gently raises the body's pH.
⚡️ Positive thoughts drive positive emotions. Be kind, especially to yourself. We often tend to be our own worst critic. Words are powerful. Speak to yourself in love. Look into podcasts by Dr. Caroline Leaf if this is a struggle.
⚡️ Exercise! Grab your bottle of Motivation essential oil and use it if exercise is hard for you. The more you do it, the easier it will become. (promise!!)
⚡️ Ditch processed foods and focus on eating foods that have a positive electrical charge... Living whole foods!
⚡️ Make sure you are continuing to remove toxins from your lifestyle. Toxins are frequency zappers! We all have access to the cleanest products on the planet in the way of Thieves Household cleaner, our YL body and skin care products.... not to mention our Savvy Minerals (standard cosmetics are LOADED with toxins).
⚡️ Make sure you spend a little time in nature every single day, and disconnect when you are doing so (disconnect regularly even if you cannot get outside) ! (Leave your phone or laptop indoors while you enjoy the gifts God gave us). Electrically speaking, this is called "grounding".
⚡️ High frequency oils are also very very helpful. Idaho Blue Spruce, Sacred Mountain, Rose, Joy, Forgiveness, Frankincense, Gentle Baby and Helichrysum are all in the higher frequency list. Apply topically or diffuse. Diffusing any of these may be helpful in group situations too. (I call this my stealth happiness tool in group settings)
We are blessed to have all these tools available, making ourselves and our sphere of influence a less stressful, fear reduced environment.
What's your "go to" in times of high stress or fear? I utilize all of the above depending on the situation, but my "go to" oils are Stress Away, Sacred Mountain, and Frankincense.
If you guessed all three, you’d actually be right! (I’ve seen more than a few of the “bird beak” masks on people this fine 2020 year).
What was the reasoning behind this garb that dates back to the 1600’s? The first time I saw this outfit, I imagined it would have been so frightening to people who encountered a person wearing this get up. Creepy, isn’t it?
People work with what they have available to them… then and now.
These "uniforms" were worn for centuries by medical professionals. In the 1630’s this garb was first designed by the chief physician to several French kings as a way to keep health workers safe from disease.
It consisted of:
👉a heavy black oilcloth overcoat. Oilcloth is used because it does not absorb moisture (or in this case, body fluids).
👉Leather gloves (no latex gloves back in the day!)
👉Circular glass or crystals to seal the eyes behind the mask
👉A wand or long stick - to inspect the (perhaps unconscious) patient from a distance.
👉 A mask with a “beak”. The conical beak, stuffed with dried herbs, was dual purpose. It kept the physician from smelling the worst of the worst smells, and there was circumstantial evidence that the herbs actually may have aided in immune support and therefore provided protection to the physician. (Back then, they knew next to nothing about the immune system, but they did study 'cause and effect' quite closely).
Fable and anecdotal history has it that glove makers, perfumers, and those living in port cities with a high volume of spice trade were among the healthier population during plague years. Is it true? I don’t know for sure. What I can say tho, is that there are thousands upon thousands of 21st century studies (pubmed.gov) that give real credence to what herbs and pure essential oils can do to support the immune system and create inhospitable environments for all kinds of miasmas. The research is solid. #pubmedismyBFF
Interestingly, we are quick to make light of this birdman costume …. How could anyone imagine it would protect a person?
And yet, despite the very clear “WARNING” on our 2020 common disposable “ear loop” mask box, people continue to rely on a simple mask for protection against the unknown without looking at actual science (or even the evidence) that 70% of those who have tested positive for the ‘rona are consummate mask wearers.
There will never be a single tool to maintain and improve health, just like you wouldn't use a screwdriver when you really need a hammer. I stretch regularly, use my Young Living essential oils, Dolphin MPS myself when I can.... but occasionally, I can still feel when I'm out of alignment.... and when that happens, it's not just a structural snafu.... nerves can be pinched, and organs can start malfunctioning. Not coincidentally, the longer I felt my neck out of whack, congestion had started developing in my head and throat.😕
Yesterday, I made time to get adjusted by my chiropractor (thank you Newmyer Chiro in McKinney!) and could literally feel the congestion fade away once my neck and shoulders were back where they were supposed to be.
I tend to carry stress (and 50lb bags of animal feed!) on my shoulders, so it's no surprise.
I feel much more balanced and healthier this morning!
What's an "out of the box" tool you use with great results?
I may have to dive more into this later.....
Fear not my friends! It is only detrimental to your overall health! That's a fact.
Did you know..... a deficiency in B vitamins has been linked to mood changes and depression. Vit B's are key ingredients when it comes to the body's ability to make mood enhancing chemicals (you may know them as serotonin, dopamine, and epinephrine😉). If your diet is lacking, both physical and mental health may be affected.
If the upcoming winter months tend to be an emotionally darker time of year for you, make sure you are giving your body the tools it needs to keep your light bright and shining!😘

Good morning friends! Yesterday as I was driving home, I passed a large section of what I thought was ragweed. I stopped, hopped out, and snapped a pic..... (planning on writing about allergies). I Googled ragweed and lo and behold, I'm fairly certain what I had snapped a pic of was our highly esteemed Goldenrod!
This got me to thinking... and I messaged my friend Danette. Neither of us was 100% certain it was even tho it definitely looks like it. 😂 #weareamateurbotanists
This little scenario made me value Young Living and all of their science and attention to detail even more so..... I mean, who wants to guess on a plant like this? It could mean the difference between effectiveness or a bad rash 😳. #wherethesundoesntshine
I also love how God gave us plants that have healing powers often just in the season that we may need it.
Most of us YL'ers know Goldenrod as that magical bedroom oil💖☝️....
.....But it's so much more than that! #alloilsaremultipurpose
Just a few other uses....
🌾seasonal respiratory support👈🙏🍂
🌾helps loosen mucus (drink more water too!)
🌾acts as a tonic to nourish and support kidneys and urinary tract #valuable
🌾supports healthy liver function
🌾creates an inhospitable environment for fungus
🌾supports a proper inflammatory response #greatforjoints!
All this to say.... don't leave Goldenrod in the bedroom! God blessed Gary with the know how and the willing spirit to share with all of us. It's up to us to maximize the potential of all our gorgeous and healing oils!

When I began researching vaccines many years ago, I did a deep dive... going where the majority of pharmacists won't go. When you are trained in the ways in which Big Pharma wants you trained, ideologies become pretty ingrained, and it's hard to think that maybe everything you learned just might not be entirely accurate.
Why do we have such a pandemic with chronic autoimmune disorders and autism? (1 in 5 , and 1 in 54 respectively)
Ask anyone over the age of 50.... mostly the above were considered rare prior to the 90's.
Certainly, it's not ONLY the vaccine industry that's to blame.... but there is assuredly a correlation. The vaccine industry exploded in the early 1990's and children, on average, now receive over 75 vaccinations by the age of 12 if the current schedule is followed.
Glyphosates, processed foods, and other toxic chemicals contribute to this pandemic.
Do you ever wonder why no Amish children have autism?
Vaccine injury is a real thing. It's not that rare. Vaccine manufacturers cannot be sued. They are protected by the government. I don't believe there is another industry in the USA so protected. Why is that?
This is a 7 minute video and if you have children or are considering getting vaccinated yourself, become knowledgeable. Don't just listen to what you learn on TV, or at the pharmacy. Remember, those with the gold make the rules. Dig deep. Do your research. We all deserve to be whole and healthy. 😘
Start 'em off right my friends! I absolutely love that Young Living now has a starter kit just for kiddos!
Do you know anyone who needs help with their kid’s sleeping, 😴emotions, focus, owies and all the things?
* And who can say no to Feather the owl diffuser? #cutest
Have you gotten the all new Little Oilers Collection Kit? Our littles NEED all the help they can get to be healthy and keep a low toxin load. (This is one way to eliminate many common toxins kiddos are often exposed to!). The prediluted bottle with the rollers make it safe to apply anytime!
And FREE shipping with either order since they are both over 100PV.
Which oil will be your favorite ?
This kit will be a game changer in so many homes.... it could be in yours too😘.

The Power to Heal Ourselves -
I've been praying for you! Our bodies are so incredibly amazing, aren't they???...... especially when they have the right ingredients to create a recipe for healthy success!
I hear some of you tho.... it may seem so overwhelming to #doallthethings. It was for me too 🙋♀️when I first began realizing I had the personal power to heal on my own 20 years ago.
Remember a few key things:
1. Is your garbage pail full? Stop putting garbage in!!! (evidence of that is nearly all chronic diseases, skin disorders, emotional disorders, etc)..... you've GOT to quit adding toxins to your "household" (ie: body) if you truly want to kickstart the healing process.
2. Start taking the garbage out. This means you are working towards gently detoxing your body. There are many ways to do this, and each way does not serve an person in the same manner. ( 👉 See Step #8!)
3. Sleep. Absolutely crucial that you get 7-8 hours of sleep each night. If you have problems achieving that #.... message me.
4. Exercise. You CAN do this.... there is an exercise program for every single situation. No excuses.
5. Hydration.... by this I mean water. Clean, pure water and lots of it.
6. Mind work.... If you find "taking out the toxins" hard to think about, perhaps focus on the reason why. You are a person of value and worth.💗 Toxins create personal limitations and it is life limiting to allow them to dictate your life and limit your potential! #thisis100percenttrue Loving ourselves enough to treat ourselves with kindness and respect (not in a spirit of enablement) is a HUGE part of self healing both physically and emotionally.
7. Thorough labwork. This is an important piece that often gets overlooked.
8. Find a guide... a scout.... someone who has walked the walk and knows the path well. So much can be done inside the walls of our own homes and thru ZOOM if meeting in person is logistically hard. 💗
If the power of healing yourself is something you are ready to embrace, give yourself a high five and a virtual hug!
I am here and I am devoted to helping people learn how to do this successfully and would be honored to help you blaze your new trail! 😘 Let's chat!
Hey Wellness Prepper friends! A month ago, God watered a seed in my soul that had been planted twenty years ago.
If I am nothing more, I am a child of God with a desire to walk in integrity in all that I do and say. I will not waver from that.
In 1991, I graduated from pharmacy school and during the graduation ceremony, I made an oath👩⚕️ that contained parts of the Hippocratic oath to do no harm. My full intention as a pharmacist has always been to help people live fuller and healthier lives. The industry that is pharmacy has changed over the last 30 years, and so have I. The more I have learned in an effort to truly help people heal, the more my integrity became tested.
While there will always be a time and a place for westernized medical care (emergent care immediately comes to mind), until we learn to love ourselves enough to WANT to #dothethings predominately outside the system of Big Pharma, we will never achieve optimal health. Big Pharma does not want that for any of us. Chronic illness is a cash crop with a guaranteed harvest. The harvest is exponentially larger the more medications someone is on. Patients are ultimately a commodity.
For this reason, I have made the decision with my sweet husband's blessing, to step away from corporate pharmacy practice so that I can focus on helping people achieve health in a fully holistic manner. Speaking truth and light freely could only be done by stepping way from a paycheck that was indirectly also a muzzle.
Unmuzzled, I'm now free to fully practice pharmacy in a way that few do.... holistically. I understand the inner workings of how Big Pharma affects the body and mind. I also know that It IS possible to live "outside the system", using allopathic medicine only when absolutely necessary.
Interested in working on your health in a truly holistic manner? Let's chat. 📞.....I'm in it for the long haul and am stepping out in faith to help others using the gifts, talents, and 30 years experience God has given me. I was created for a time such as this as Esther (4:14) would say.... to help you find your wellness sweet spot, so that you can be all God created you to be too. #Hehasbigplansforeachoneofus
Here's my story~
Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
