Is Dis-ease Genetics or Not?

I just read this information by Christiane Northrup, M.D, regarding our thoughts and dis-ease.

Many of you know that your thoughts can affect your health. And, most of you have heard stories of people recovering from grave illnesses when modern medicine failed. Doctors often use terms such as “spontaneous remission,” “faith healing” and “miracles.”

I have always said emotions that are freely experienced and expressed without judgment or attachment tend to support health. The now-popular field of epigenetics (the science of how our environment affects our genes) is proving that we do, in fact, have the ultimate control over how our genes will express in our lifetime. In other words: your DNA is responsive to changes in your environment. And your thoughts are your environment!

Deep-rooted beliefs of health and vitality can actually trigger your genes to express in a healthy way. So, while you may have a gene mutation for a certain disease, your epigenetic markers for that mutation can be reversed. It’s like a pencil mark that you can erase.

My take on this information:

I’ve known for a long time how true her statements are. I’ve also gone around in circles with people regarding the heart attack I had in 2012. The doctors say it’s genetics; others say it’s genetics. Yes, my immediate family has huge heart illnesses. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean it was from genetics. I believe it is more about the environment I grew up in with all the meat and potato meals; all the stress I held inside over the many years of an abusive relationship, attempting to handle everything myself, and not knowing any different. As well as, focusing on what I DIDN’T want. The Universe gives you what you focus on, whether you want it or not.

When I had the heart issue, I was very surprised because I had been taking care of myself pretty well for the prior decade. One nurse told me it was just years of buildup. Well, imagine if I hadn’t been taking care of myself. I would probably have had the issue way before then and may have taken more than one and a half weeks to recover. Most people didn’t even know I had the heart issue.

In my mind, it was an event. An event that let me know I needed to still do something different in the way I was living my life. I’ve been practicing being aware of my thoughts and word usage for years. I know how to manifest what I desire in my life. I also know I still needed to allow myself to accept and ask for more help instead of attempting to do it all myself.

Your thoughts are your environment too. Just like Christiane Northrup states above and how science is now proving how important your thoughts are to the results you create in your life. I’ve been sharing the teaching this concept to others for quite some time now. Just today, a young lady was talking about how “I’m not going to die from cancer”….. What is she focusing on? What is she telling the Universe? She is focusing on the dying from cancer! I suggested she switch the words and thoughts around to what she wants. To live a happy, healthy life!

So often we think we are focusing on what we want, when we are really focusing on what we don’t want. It only takes turning those thoughts around to tell the Universe what you really want vs. what you don’t want.

I’m sure you’ve known someone who has overcome a dis-ease, when the doctors said there was nothing they could do. Their thoughts and attitude are what supported them in becoming healthy. Along with their thoughts, what they eat, and what kinds of activity they do on a daily basis. Queen Bee Biz helps you clarify what you do want, then we share resources for you to be able to change your thoughts about dis-ease. You can check us out at www.queenbeebiz.com

Your Menopause Body Powered by Appreciation!

First off, what is appreciation? Synonyms for appreciation are thankfulness, recognition, gratefulness, high regard, enjoyment, love, honor or praise. Appreciation is one of the highest vibrations there is – right up there with LOVE! If you are not including appreciation of your menopausal body in your daily routine, then you are really missing a simple way to have a happy, healthy body! If you are – kudos!

Believe me ladies, we all need to have a great relationship with our bodies during this time of change. It is critical to pay attention to what you are saying to your body and what you believe about your bodies. Remember what you think about is what you bring about wanted or unwanted – the Law of Attraction.

This is how the law of attraction works, when you look in a mirror or try on bathing suits, do you see your bodies as an enemy or friend? How many positive thoughts about your body do you have in a day? How many negative thoughts do you have about your body in a day? Most of us are out of balance when it comes to communicating effectively with our bodies. Results our bodies seem to become our enemies during this delicate time in our lives. How well do you get along with your enemies?  Will you enemies work for you to be happy?  Remember junk in gives you junk out!

In the past month, my wise friend, Judi Moreo , sent out a newsletter article about thanking our bodies for all the wonderful, miraculous things it does for us every minute of the day! I started thinking about how I talk to my brilliant body. I really had not had a very kind discussion with it in a long time. Oh, the things I have screamed at it! You are not healthy enough! You are not thin enough! You are not strong or young enough! That is the PG version of the one-way conversations. Am I really not surprised that my body is not where I want it to be? Throwing negative insults at it has not given me the results I have not desired!

Solution: Starting about 5 weeks ago, I have made a conscience decision to power my body by the appreciation it deserves. Yep, I have started to appreciate and thank all the parts of my body. The results were amazing.

At one of our Queen Bee Saturday events, I lead the gals through “Thank You Body” meditation. At the end of the meditation the gals felt expanded, at peace, and their bodies felt amazing! Everyone was so surprised at the simplicity and effectiveness of the exercise!

Your menopause body powered by Appreciation might be what the doctor ordered for you to open up a beautiful line of communication with it. Our bodies have been trying to communicate with us, but with all our negative screaming, we have not allowed ourselves to listen to it. It knows what food and exercise is good for it. Appreciate it and LISTEN!

Our bodies know what it will take to be healthier and handle menopause. We are the ones making it a bit more difficult with our thoughts and beliefs. Add appreciation to your daily work out and feel how it super sizes the results.

About the same time I started appreciating my body, I started a Pilates Class with the reformer machines. I wanted my body to get stronger and feel healthier. The first day of Pilates was quite challenging for me is an understatement. I felt muscles where I did not know I had muscles! In the middle of a grueling abdominal set on the reformer, when I felt I could not do another rep – I acknowledge my abs by saying a quick “I appreciate you and thank you”. Something remarkable happened, my body allowed me to easily finish up the last three reps. I thought. “hmm…. that’s interesting”. I tried it again when I felt I could not go any further and again the results were amazing. When I was done and on my way home – I gave thanks and appreciation to my tired body. In return, I received a burst of energy to continue through my day.

I will continue powering my menopause body by appreciation, so I can reap the benefits of a happy, healthy body! I really pay attention to what I am communicating to my body- I want to be friends with it. As we all know, friends do not degrade each other. They build each other up! Let your body be your friend!

So lovely ladies over 45, if you seem to be in a battle with your before, during or after menopause body, call a truce! Open up the line of positive communication with it by appreciating your body and your health every day. Now notice how your body responds and how happier you are!

We have created a “Thank You “ Body Meditation you can listen to a couple times of the day. Get your appreciation on now!

Menopause Secret #5 To Bee Happy

Ladies, it is possible to Bee Happy before, during and after menopause, if you follow these 7 Secrets. Receive gifts from family and friends with gratitude. It doesn’t matter what the gift is, just know the person thought enough of you to want to give you something. Be grateful that you actually have people in your life that care for you. So here is Secret #5, “Bee a Grateful Receiver!”

Growing up I experienced my mom and aunt always arguing with the other whenever one was going to pay for everything. Neither one would allow the other to pay. Doesn’t it take two to give and receive? In the Far East, it is an insult not to accept a gift. It really does make sense. It takes someone to receive a gift, in order to give a gift.

In essence, I always felt guilty accepting gifts from others. How did the other person feel when I wouldn’t accept their gift? How do you feel when someone turns down a gift from you?

Secret #5 – Receive with gratitude and honor the giver.

I really “got it” after I was told “it takes someone to receive a gift to give a gift”. Now I just say “thank you”. I appreciate the thought and gesture. Receiving a gift with gratitude is the biggest gift you can give the giver.  You might be wondering where all that comes from.  You can find some of the answers in our Free Video Series called The Happiness Gap.

I believe we decline gifts because we feel as though we don’t deserve them. When you get right down to the bottom of it, I would bet this is why. I’ve decided this way of thinking is really selfish, because I’m only thinking of myself in that scenario. Think about the person offering the gift. They want to do something nice for you and here you are refusing?!

In other words, stop being rude when someone is giving you something. Accept the gift and thank them with the deepest sincerity. You’ll realize you are doing them a favor by accepting their offer with gratitude. You’ll Bee Happier knowing you feel good enough about yourself to do this.  Vicki and I created the Free Video Series called The Happiness Gap, so you can understand why you do some of what you do and how to Bee Happier, even pre-, during, and post Menopause!

Menopause Secret #4 to Bee Happy!

Ladies, it is possible to Bee Happy before, during and after menopause, if you follow these 7 Secrets.  As we age, we sometimes feel we know everything! Do not get me wrong, we do get wiser with age but sometimes we tend to close off. I don’t know if we do it because we are afraid of change or we do not want to learn anything knew. Whatever the reason is, these actions limit our ability to bee happy! So it time for Secret #4, Be Open to Endless Possibilities!

I have worked hard the past 10 years in being more open! I have been open to try new foods, to try new sports ( like sky diving and scuba diving) and to travel to new countries. The results is I have received more joy from all of these experiences. I just didn’t know what I was missing.

Our life after menopause can be so special! If we stay open to endless possibilities, the joy just continues to flow in!

When I get in one of those closed off places, when a new idea or opportunity is given to me, I repeat this statement to keep me open. “Can I let go of being so smart, and allow it to better than I think it could be!?”  Then say – YES! Let it all go and open yourself up! This statements allows me to keep the door open to endless possibilities!  Try it for yourself- and let me know how it works for you.

Remember Secret #4- Be Open to Endless Possibilities!
