59: Summer of Healing



Super short podcast to let all of my listeners know that I will see you in the fall! I will be taking this summer to focus on my health, reduce stress, spend more time with God in His word and doing the action steps to allow my body to heal if that is what God desires to do!

Can’t wait to be back in the fall and to share with you my summer and hopefully the complete healing of this battle with my throat that I’ve been dealing with for 3 years!

Honestly, I’ve had my ups and downs with this struggle, challenge, journey…. but I know that there is a very good reason that God has me on this path and on this journey and I can’t wait to work through it!

In the mean time, take some time out and spend it with God you guys!!! We need to cling to His word, His strength, His love during this time!

57: THE PAIN OF SUGAR ADDICTION & YOUR HEALTH WITH DR. SCHILLING



Press play and get ready for an intense episode digging into sugar addiction and how it affects the body- specifically the hormone disruption, the power of our mind in our healing journey and tools to implement when you feel that craving or desire to binge eat.

Once you are the age 30-35 then your brain is running on past autopilot mode and you are rinsing and repeating 95% of the same things from the day before and the day before. This makes it challenging when you are trying to kick a habit like sugar cravings, binge eating and emotional eating because it definitely feels like an uphill battle. Dr. Schilling dives into the power that we have to shift our mindset but it has to be intentional and it has to be consistent.


Here are a few of my fav one liners that Dr. Schilling shared during this podcast:

“People don’t get what they deserve, they get what they have to have.” I love this one because when we are relating it to our sugar addiction and binge eating- guess what….. We don’t deserve the health effects and consequences of this bad choice, but we get what we have to have. Which  in that moment we HAVE TO HAVE THE FOOD! That is our autopilot to take away the pain and to get through our day. So the shift needs to happen with taking responsibility and shifting away from our past autopilot mode so that we can achieve a different result.

“You will suffer pain. It is either the pain of self- discipline or the pain of regret.” Again… we have that choice. Oftentimes, I feel like the pain is greater with the regret, but in the moment when we have to have the food and give into the craving we feel like there is no way out. I loved when Dr. Schilling goes into taking that Pause when you feel the craving- doing some breaths, adding in movement, tapping on sternum just to disrupt your mind to stop the autopilot and to allow you to make that choice.

We need to adopt a lifestyle, not a diet.” Dr. Schilling dives deep into how critical this is to adopt a lifestyle because this sets a tone and a choice that I’m not depriving myself. When we use verbiage like “I can’t have that, or that. I’m not allowed to eat that, etc.” Then this is setting up our mind to retaliate and it will want it even more. So shifting into that lifestyle and using verbiage like “I’m choosing _____”. 

Brain rewiring is crucial for lasting transformation and in your healing journey. Dr Schilling specializes in QNRT work with his participants. Check out what QNRT is here : https://www.secoyahealth.com/index.php?p=506935

We also discussed about a Joe Dispenza meditation to utilize when we feel that craving. Here is a breakdown on what that looks like:  Pull the belly button back to the spine, as you draw in the air, up through your stomach, up through your lungs,  up through your throat  and to behind your third eye. Then hold your breath and do 5 kegels. Feel the pressure. This is directing energy to the pineal gland which helps to activate the brain and to disrupt the process of your past autopilot mode with cravings/ binge eating.  

Meet Dr. Schilling: Dr. Schilling graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic. Prior to studying Chiropractic Medicine, he had a career as a Mechanical Engineer, including several years volunteering for the Peace Corps in Mexico as a Systems Engineer and Knowledge Management Specialist. His work analyzing many different systems as an engineer, provided him with a heightened understanding of the interconnectedness of the systems of the human body. Applying these skills to his chiropractic care allows Dr. Schilling to not simply focus on the immediate pain, but rather on finding and correcting the root cause of the problem. He is the owner of Secoya Health in Woodbury, MN which is one of the most integrative family wellness clinics in the Midwest focusing on integrated, progressive and holistic natural healthcare.

55: FINDING PEACE & HOPE IN GOD WITH LAUREN JENSEN



Join in on this podcast with writer, singer and faithful servant Lauren Jensen where we dive into how we can find hope and certainty in the Lord who is in control, choosing faith over fear and how to settle our worries and fully trust in God. Likely our identities are shifting massively during this time and we may be feeling lost and confused not knowing where to turn, where to focus or the next step. So, in this episode, Lauren dives into a variety of topics to guide you back to the rock and foundation that each and everyone of us have access to: God, Jesus & the Holy Spirit.

A few of things we dig into are:

-How to be aware of new distractions that are taking us away from Christ

-Tips for handling this situation with our kiddos

-How is she seeing God at work during this time

-Allowing silence and stillness which brings us wisdom

-And my absolute fav part: “I don’t want to leave this COVID-19 the way I came in. I want to be a different person.”

53: STOP FEELING PARALYZED AND BEGIN TAKING MICRO-STEPS WITH AMANDA EDWARDS



Nothing external will hold us back more than ourselves. So, in this episode we are digging into how taking micro steps can lead you into accomplishing bigger things, but it begins with clarity, mindset and ability to take consistent intentional micro steps. Often times we can feel paralyzed with overwhelm and not knowing what to do or where to go and we just don’t do anything. Especially now with so much uncertainty in the midst of the pandemic. So, how can we shift our focus to consistency in smaller micro-steps to achieve our bigger goal through growth and development instead of wanting big results/ big things with not allowing ourselves to grow and transform.

Meet Amanda Edwards: Host of the Imperfectly Ambitious Podcast which focuses on empowering women to imperfectly pursue their own version of success by focusing on their mindset so they can cut through the overwhelm and clutter to make time and space for what matters most.

52: WANT TO HAVE A “BETTER” TOMORROW?



What we think about ourselves and about our life becomes the truth for us. Therefore, every thought we think is creating our future. So in this time during the coronavirus outbreak where we feel like we are left with no peace, harmony or balance, we need to turn to our thoughts first to change it here and then we will notice it showing up in our lives.

Our power lies in the present, now. What are we thinking? Because this determines how we feel and how we act and then leads us to our reality.

During this time, where we have fear instilled on us on a daily basis, changing our perspective to allow us to move through this instead of putting our heels into the ground and being dragged.

Listen in as we dig deep into getting to the root of our reality- which is our thoughts.

50: NEVER BEFORE, BUT NOW IS THE TIME: PRAY WITH ME



Who ever would have thought we would be in this place? Schools are cancelled… at least in the state of WI= INDEFINITELY!? SAY WHAT?!  Restaurants are closed and only allow pick up only. Toilet paper is hard to find. Homes are stocked due to warnings of not being able to leave your house. And THOUSANDS are without jobs.

WOW- did that sure happen quick. If you are anything like me… you have gone through states of literally feeling paralyzed. Not even being able to function. Maybe you wake up feeling like everything is “normal” and then you truly wake up to the fact life will never be the same. You get sucked into fear and doubt and left in despair.

In this time, the only thing that you can truly find certainty in is our Lord, Jesus Christ. Instead of letting this time divide us, allow it to bring you closer and fully depending on the Lord instead of trying to “do it all yourself”.

Never before have I prayed on my podcast… until this episode. And to be honest. It may have been the first. But, it won’t be the last.

It feels so stinking amazing to allow this part of me to be a part of EVERYTHING I do. Allowing myself to not “hide”, to not fully speak out about the importance of Faith in my life and to separate it is exhilarating.  So- hear is to episode 50. The beginning of our life forever changing after this Coronavirus and the internal war that is being fought.

It’s time to come together. It’s time to pray. It’s time to have hope. It’s time to unite.

If you are struggling during this time- PLEASE message me! I would love to chat with you, do a breath work session, support you during this time.
