Truly amazing People have One thing in common

Inspiring people, mind hacking, The mind

I love watching inspirational people that are successful in their chosen field, whatever that may be.  Some of my Fave people to listen to and read about are the likes of Jim Rhon, Tom Bilyea, Joe Rogan, Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton…Oh the list can go on and on…Oh and of course Tony Robbins….plus I’ve missed like a gazillion..

 

But what I’m talking about is the one thing that really successful people do and that is – They all get up early and create their day.  I don’t mean they write a list of all the things that needs to be done and off they pop.  I mean they all have their own rituals to make sure they are in a state of mind that will set them up for the rest of the day.

Gratitude

Meditation

Exercise

Visualization

Incantations

They make the time to really focus on their inner emotional well being first thing in the morning in their own unique ways.

I have been practicing my own morning routine for the last few years and tweaked it here and there.  I absolutely love my time in the morning, it is my most fave time to create and really be myself and tune into the frequency that I want to emit for the day.

I practice energy healing so my morning routine would be different to those who are wanting to achieve other goals. But I really like Tony Robbins morning routine so I incorporate what he does after my self healing and yoga routine.  This helps my physical body for when I am with clients working on massage etc.  My morning routine helps to remind me of all I have and all I am grateful for.  When you are in a blessed state and you focus your energy on all the things that you are truly grateful for then more of those things will come your way in the most unexpected of ways.

So develop your own morning routine, Turn off your phone and get up an hour earlier and focus all your intention on what you want to create in your life and how you want to feel.

My Anxiety Tool Box

Rewiring the Brain

Tools to overcome anxiety

 

First you must understand the very basic of how the mind works.  The Conscious and Sub Conscious Mind. 

Conscious Mind

This is the mind that teaches you a new skill.  Let’s say for example Driving a Car.  First you learn to look in the mirrors, how to work the clutch, the gears, the signals and you learn the rules of the road.  You have so much to think about, so you are fully engaged with the conscious mind.  Once you have been driving a while you soon don’t have to think about driving, you may find you drive to work and don’t even know how you got there.  So how is your mind able to think about other things, such as what your having for tea or where your going out after work whilst your driving?? Your subconscious mind has taken over and has driven you to work.  The subconscious mind is in control 95% of your day.  So what other programme ‘s have been set into the subconscious mind?? 

Anxiety? When you think a thought and pop an emotion behind it, it gets stored into your subconscious mind.  Lets repeatedly think anxious thought and hey presto…You now have an anxiety disorder?  This then leads to avoiding certain situations as that feeling is just too overwhelming to even want to put yourself in that position. 

The brain is naturally there to protect you, but when you become anxious over everything, the brain goes into fight or flight.  It is simply doing its job. 

Okay so that’s all well and good, but how the heck do we reprogramme it.  Well the same way you programmed it for anxiety.  Repeat, Repeat, Repeat the positive emotion until it is stored into your subconscious brain.  How do we do this?? I have a few techniques that I use myself and find that these work.  This takes time and practice and lots of patience and a lot of kindness towards yourself.  You will have bad days…but just as long as you keep on practicing the techniques then these bad days will be less and less, and you can begin to enjoy your life again.

 

Techniques

First and most importantly is BREATHING – So Navy Seals practice a lot of mindful training in order to remain calm in the most dangerous of situations.  We are not Navy Seals and are  not faced with war but in our mind we might as well be.  Practice this technique DAILY – and when your anxiety goes up then you will have this in your TOOL BOX to pull out and help you remain calm

Tool Kit 1

Box BREATHING

Box breathing is a technique used to calm yourself down with a simple 4 second rotation of breathing in, holding your breath, breathing out, holding your breath, and repeating.

Also known as Navy SEAL breathing technique, or tactical breathing, it’s a surprisingly simple and effective way to help regain calm and control of your thoughts when under stress.

https://quietkit.com/box-breathing/  – This is a site that will help you with this technique

Tool Box 2 – 54321 (Mel Robbins)

Technique 2 – Anxiety and Excitement are very similar, they just have different thoughts but produce the same feelings.  So this next technique is going to teach you to quickly interrupt anxiety in its tracks and pop in a new emotion. 

As soon as you feel anxiety, you say to yourself or out loud CHANGE 5,4,3,2,1 and really amplify that good emotion.  This interrupts the neural pathways in the brain and installs a new better emotion

Tool Box 3 – Self Talk

Self-Talk – So Vital.  Being aware of what you say to yourself daily is so important.  Start of by keeping a thought journal so you are aware of the thoughts that are on repeat.  We then need new self-talk.  Pick an affirmation and repeat this with a strong loving emotion behind it. 

Mine is – I am strong, I am calm.  I also have a few people that I imagine whilst I say these, and this helps me to feel like if they can do it then so can I. 

——————————————————————————————-

Books I found very useful – Dr Joe Dispenza – Breaking the habit of being yourself.    Mindfulness books – mindfulness-guide-for-the-frazzled.

Mindfulness Meditation is so important, so the nervous system can relax, and we can have a few moments out of living in our head.  There is a lot on YouTube to listen to or there is a Headspace app which is very good.

CBD Oil is amazing for helping the mind to relax and helping you sleep.

Essential oils are also very good for anxiety – Lavender or geranium etc

Diet is extremely important.  Caffeine, Sugar and Gluten can all cause us to have anxiety.  Make sure you are not deficient in certain vitamins and minerals as well.  Magnesium deficiency or anaemia can cause the same symptoms as anxiety.

 

**Note – I am not a medical doctor or counsellor.   I am a holistic therapist and a person who has suffered many years with anxiety and I know what works for me and a lot of my clients. 

 

 

Different Methods of Taking CBD

cbd oil

CBD, a non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis, seems to generate new studies every day claiming a new usage. It can be difficult for consumers to make sense of the products they find advertised online and at their local dispensary, and even more difficult to decide which is right for them.

With CBD suddenly being touted in food products and cosmetics, in the form of different oils, crystals, e-liquids and teas, it’s no surprise many are confused by it all. To help make sense of so many options, we’ve created a guide to some of the most common CBD products available.

CBD-rich oil

How it’s made:

CBD-rich oil is a specific oil that contains CBD and doesn’t contain THC. CBD-rich oil is obtained via extraction made from cannabis flowers, most of the times from hemp strains rich in CBD. Then this extract can be mixed with hemp seed oil, olive oil or other types of oil to facilitate ingestion. These CBD-rich oil products are non-psychoactive.

It is important to know the difference between CBD oil and Hemp seed oil.
Hemp seed oil is a hemp extract taken from the seeds of the plant. Industrial hemp is the only plant used for this type of hemp oil. The seeds of the hemp plant can be cold pressed, peeled or unpeeled (preferably cold), to create a delicious oil. There are no cannabinoids such as THC or CBD present in the oil since hemp seeds are not psychoactive. Hemp oil is legal in most countries and can be found in food markets, together with more common types of oil, like olive oil.


Image result for cbd oil and how to take it
How you use it:

CBD-rich oil can be consumed in many ways. Users looking for the strongest effect from the oil can take it directly by placing a drop on or under the tongue so the oil is absorbed through the mouth and digestive tract. Others who want to enjoy the experience of consumption may choose to add a drop of oil to cooking or baked goods or dissolve a drop in their smoothie or tea.

Hemp seed oil can be found in food markets, together with more common types of oil, like olive oil. Hemp seed oil is known for its great taste and for it’s high values of unsaturated fats, such as Omega 3 and Omega 6.  It can be used in Many different applications such as  Lotions or soaps, a base for plastics, instead of petroleum and eco-friendly paints.

CBD Crystals

How they’re made:

After hemp oil is removed from the plant, it can be further refined to isolate only CBD. To isolate pure CBD crystals, extracted hemp oil is put through a ‘winterisation’ process- or slowly heated to remove fats and lipids. Then, a machine called a rotary evaporator is used to remove any remaining plant traces. The final product is decarboxylated through another meticulous heating process to activate the cannabinoids, making chemicals bioavailable for consumers.

 

How you use it:

CBD crystals give consumers more versatility than oil. Like hemp oil, they can be added to foods, dissolved in drinks or swallowed whole, but unlike oil, crystals can also be ‘dabbed’  like cannabis concentrates (a manual vaporization method) made into an e-liquid, or sprinkled over a cigarette or joint.

Pros and cons:

Because crystals are more highly concentrated than other forms of CBD—up to 99.8% in some cases, they produce a more immediate effect than other methods of consuming it. On the downside, isolating only one cannabinoid removes a variety of terpenes from the final product.

 

Methods of ingestion are entirely up to the user’s preference. Different methods could have different effects on one person to another based on their personal taste.

For users looking for an easy use, we recommend our wide range of CBD e-liquids, which are available in different strengths to suit your needs. For consumers looking for the highest-impact product available, pure CBD crystals may be the best option. For those simply wanting to explore the use of CBD in their normal diet, hemp oil may have the best overall benefits. CBD tea is best suited for consumers who simply want a flavourful tea.

CBD E-Liquids

How it’s made:

CBD e-liquids are CBD products designed for use in e-cigarettes or vaporisers. Many manufacturers start with pure CBD crystals in order to precisely measure the CBD dosage, combining them with vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. High-quality e-liquid producers also add terpenes, (aromatic compounds from the cannabis plant) back into the e-liquid at the end of the process to enhance flavour.

How you use it:

CBD e-liquids can be used in place of nicotine e-liquids in any standard e-cigarette or portable vaporiser. Simply add the e-liquid to the tank of your vape and follow the device’s instructions to inhale the vapour. Prepared e-liquid cartridges are also available for e-cigarette models that don’t allow for manual refills.

Pros and cons:

E-cigarettes have become a huge trend. They are convenient and discreet when travelling and allow users to ‘vape’ in places where they were previously not allowed to smoke, like inside public buildings or at the office. Dosages in this form can vary, producers often offer different strengths of CBD e-liquids for different user preferences. This is the most affordable, direct and convenient option for a majority of consumers.

CBD Tea

How it’s made:

CBD tea is made simply by drying the leaves and buds of CBD-rich hemp plants. Like other cannabinoids, CBD extracts from the plant and binds to fats during any heating process. To get the best effect the tea should be brewed for several minutes with some type of fat like milk, cream, or coconut oil. Without fat included in brewing, users will only get the benefits of antioxidants, fatty acids and the tea’s sweet, subtle flavour rather than active cannabinoids.

How to use it:

To get the full flavour of hemp tea, brew tea in hot water with milk, cream or coconut oil for 5 minutes or more. Dried hemp tea leaves can also be used as a replacement for loose rolling tobacco when making cigarettes or joints.

Pros and cons:

Because raw dried hemp leaves have not gone through processes to activate the chemicals they contain, the cannabinoids in hemp tea are less ‘bioavailable’, meaning the user will feel a much weaker overall effect compared to other methods.

MCT Oil – Another Great Oil to add to your diet.

cbd oil, nutrition

MCT OIL

MCT stands for Medium-Chain triglycerides which are a type of saturated fatty acid that has been associated with a range of health benefits; most notably cognitive function and better weight management. MCT’s, which can also be called MCFAs (Medium Chain Fatty Acids) are thought to be missing from the diets of those who eat a ‘standard western’ diet. This could be because we don’t have regular access have all been told to be afraid of ‘saturated fats’! But it is like anything- in moderation, the right saturated fats can actually be beneficial to our body functions.

 

Image result for mct oil how it works

Where do Medium Chain Triglycerides come from?

MCT’s or MCFA’s can be found in their highest concentrations in Coconut Oil which is made up to 62-65% of MCT fatty acids but they can also be found in smaller quantities in foods such as butter (from grass-fed cows), Cheeses, Palm Oil, Whole Milk and full-fat yoghurts. It is a fact that medium chain triglycerides fatty acids are easier to digest than long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) and might have even had benefits related to heart health, prevention of obesity and brain function.

MCT Oil Benefits

Here is a list of MCT Oil Benefits:

  • Maintain a healthy weight – Since both make you feel full
  • Reduce Stored Body Fat as they Raise your Metabolic Function
  • Have More Energy
  • Think More Clearly
  • Experience Better Digestion
  • Balance Hormone Levels
  • Improve Your Mood
  • Fight Bacterial Infections & Viruses
  • Absorb Fat-Soluble Nutrients from Various Foods
  • MCTs are also seen as promoting fat oxidation and reduced food intake. Interest in MCTs has been expressed by endurance athletes and the bodybuilding community.

Why is MCT Oil Good for you?

All types of fatty acids are made up of strings of carbon and hydrogen; the Medium chains are between 6-12 carbon atoms long. Medium-chain fats are very easily digested and they are sent directly to your liver. They are easily digested because the body uses less energy to break down the carbon bonds, so they require very few special enzymes to absorb into the liver. Medium chain triglycerides create a thermogenic effect and the positively alter your metabolism which has sparked many scientific claims that these fats are burned as fuel rather than being stored in the body as fat, making them perfect for those on a ketonic diet(one of the more well known MCT Oil benefits). Alongside this, they are known to have the capability to help the body battle bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites & contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The medium chain triglyceride oil benefits are much of the reason for Coconut oil is one of the most beneficial oils on the planet.

mct oil - mct oil benefits

Why are MCT oils good as a CBD carrier oil?

When thinking of how CBD interacts with carrier oils, it is essential that we attach it to a healthy oil that enhances the effects and absorption of the cannabinoid into your Liver. The CBD compound attaches very easily to the medium-chain fatty acids and is absorbed in the same way that the fats are. MCT’s are a strong binding for Cannabinoids and can be added to many foods. MCT is antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral & has been shown to reduce bad bacteria while leaving good bacterias alone in human biological systems. As MCT is a fat it is a good fat for the body to process as it’s breakdown requires significantly less excess energy than other fatty acids. MCTs passively diffuse from the GI tract into the lymphatic system & act like an inert source of energy that the human body finds easy to metabolise and absorb.

Compared to hemp oil, when the CBD is added to the MCT oils your body can absorb it much quicker and easier so it means that the amount of CBD your liver is absorbing is increased. Simply put, the MCT oil is a much more efficient delivery system than other carrier oils, such as hemp oil. CBD combined with the MCT oil benefits can only mean good things.

Superfood – CBD Hemp – Preventative

cbd oil, nutrition

People start finding out about CBD oil mainly due to the fact that they are in pain either mentally or physically.  Normally people have tried almost everything and are at the end of their tether when they come across CBD oils.  But what a lot of people don’t know is that CBD mixed with pure hemp oil is actually an amazing superfood.  I have been a vegetarian since I was 10 and have gone through stages of  my life when I have been a very unhealthy anaemic junk food vegetarian.  When health problems arose I looked into ways to make myself feel better.  I have added a variety of health food, superfood, supplements into my diet over the years and came across CBD oils.  The more I research into the oils the more I find out about the most amazing benefits.

CBD Hemp Oil is considered to be a Super Food – it offers a complete full spectrum of natural proteins, with all 20 amino acids used by the human body, including all eight essential amino acids. It contains the perfect ratio of omega fatty acids 3, 6 & 9. CBD Hemp has high levels of enzymes, fiber, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, and E and is rich in essential minerals such as calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus. CBD is packed full of natural carotenes, flavonoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds and terpenes.
There are more than 500 trace compounds in hemp working synergistically together with CBD to render its powerful nutrition. Scientists call this “the entourage effect.” So there is no single magic constituent standing alone that gives CBD hemp its myriad of health values. Each compound in CBD full spectrum CBD oil plays off of another and this is what makes this cannabis plant so special.

 

 

CTFO CBD hemp oil does not contain the intoxicating cannabinoid called THC. – This is a misconception. Since hemp only has a trace amount of THC, it’s not enough to make it illegal or get someone high. HempWorx CBD hemp oil is extracted and tested to have less than <.3% THC content, which is so negligible it cannot produce a high. And because of this negligible THC count, this renders CBD hemp oil legal in all 50 states. Taking CBD hemp oil will not give a positive reading for marijuana on a drug test. So this is another reason why CBD hemp oil is so popular.
