  • Tomorrow is the day! My book Healing Prolapse: Inspired Words for Your Journey Within, launches on Amazon (Kindle and paperback)  https://amzn.to/37Gz2Et 
While literally billions of women in the Western World suffer from some form of prolapse, it is a condition shrouded in secrecy. Why? Because women feel shame, embarrassment and that their body has failed them. It is my job to show them it is NOT their body failing them, rather a symptom of suppression that weaves back through history and generations. It is so much more than a physical issue. It is a result of women believing they are not enough. It is a result of women believing lies about their womb.

It is my role to show women the true reflection of themselves: one of beauty, power and incredible possibilities. There is much work to be done and this is just the beginning. I healed second degree uterine prolapse because I awoke to the truth and I did the work to heal. Now, I’m showing others how they can do the same. 
Please share with the women in your life. They may not be talking about it, but they may be suffering beyond measure. https://amzn.to/37Gz2Et .

  • Healing Prolapse: Inspired Words for Your Journey Within, officially launches on Amazon on February 22 (pre-sale is open now). I am humbled by the response I've received after sending out just a few review copies of this 85-page book.

I wrote it to support women with Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP); to help them think about their symptoms in a new way and to share what I know after I healed what the medical establishment told me was not possible.
🌹
“I am half way through your book and I honestly can't even begin to tell you how amazing this is, and what a blessing this is to the POP community! Such a gift 🙏" — Lindsay T, Canada.
🌹
“Healing Prolapse is filled with empowerment and hope, two things that women who have been diagnosed with prolapse are rarely given. For many, the suggestions offered in this book may well be the missing link in their healing journey.”—Tracie L, United States.
🌹
“Inspirational! I absolutely loved it! Such a beautiful gift for women to read in order to acknowledge that we need to look past the physical in order to find true healing.”—Chyvawn N, Canada.
🌹
“Healing prolapse is a beautifully written book to help nurture and find completeness, from within. Shannon has given women hope to find a natural way of loving themselves, as when we tune in to the very core of our knowing, healing begins." — Jocelyn Oades, New Zealand.
🌹
“What a treasure to read Shannon’s new book! Such grace, love and support. There is no doubt that Shannon was destined to help women in this sacred way and after reading her new book, I think you will find your vibration lifted to a place where you can manifest and heal anything you desire! Starting with your womb. May the Divine Mother shine her light on all of you who seek to find your truth, and your path of healing in these pages."— Elly Numia, New Zealand.

It strengthens your self-confidence and self-esteem, especially in situations where you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or powerless. Bronzite healing properties help to alleviate any feelings of doubt or indecisiveness. This particular bronzite meaning makes this a very beneficial stone to use when considering plans for the future.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} A Selenite wand (pictured) is the ideal energy tool for all types of energy cleansing. Everyone needs one in their home. It is one of the the very few minerals that has the ability to quickly unblock stagnant energy and remove negative energy. Place one on each of your windowsills to protect your space and raise its vibration. Selenite crystals also greatly magnify the energy of anything that is placed upon them. Place your tumbled stones on top of them to clear their energy. 💎
Selenite is one of our must-have crystals—it’s one that we both wear each and everyday. It is a mineral that holds a very, very high vibration, working on many different energetic levels to cleanse, purify and clear your body of any negativity or energy blockages. Selenite crystals dispel all negative energy from the body and mind, bringing calming energies, deep peace and mental clarity.
💎
Unknown to many, Selenite also promotes fertility as well as unlocks any creative blocks. It is excellent for healers, light workers and people in the public to wear, as they act as an energetic shield surrounding your aura. Some even believe that its' natural ability to cleanse, purify and create energy flow throughout the entire energy system will help to restructure and regenerate cells. It is often used in holistic medicine treatments for physical healing, including cancer treatment and tumor reduction. 💎
Wearing a selenite necklace also shields and protects you from lower energy frequencies, especially energy vampires, spirits or ghosts. Selenite is a form of liquid light that infuses your aura and spirit with white light when worn or held.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Peacock Ore’s (also called Chalcopyrite) rainbow color surrounds you with light to inspire positivity. It is a stone of creativity, innovation and blessings that helps to increase creative energies and stimulate new ideas. Hold it in your hands and say: Negative energy will not enter my space. I am surrounded by light and peace. This will amplify its properties for peace and protection.

It is also believed to be one of the strongest healing stones in the mineral kingdom, as it has the ability to align every chakra when placed upon it. Using it in body layouts causes a transformative experience that removes negative energy and replaces it with strong, positive energy. Meditating with them on a regular basis increases your intuition and helps you to become more in tune with the universe. It is also said to help us overcome the idea of “perfection,” encouraging us to embrace who we are and accept ourselves. 💎

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Black Tourmaline is one the ultimate protection crystals. If you are looking to clear, cleanse and unlock any energy blockages in your home, place a piece of Black Tourmaline in each of the 4 corners of the room or at the 4 corners of your property. This creates a protective shield of energy to ensure that no negative and harmful energy permeates your space. The human body is constantly bombarded with positive and negative energies. When you come in contact with people everyday, you often pick up some of their energy. To maintain a balanced mind, body and spirit, you want to make sure that your energy is 100% your own, so knowing how to remove negative energy from your energy field is key. 💎

How to Transition to a Wholefood Diet

April 24, 2011
wholefood diet

Q: What’s the best way to transition from a junk food diet to a wholefood diet?  Can I do my body any harm if I do it too quickly? ~ Anna, New Jersey, USA

A: Going into a rapid, quick-fix form of cleansing can send the body into shock and slow the body’s metabolism. The best way to transition from a Standard American Diet to a wholefood diet is gradually, without too much taxation and stress on the body and mind.

When we are under stress, blood flows away from the core, hampering the renewal and recovery of the organs, hormonal systems and body. The initial renewal process we go through with our BodyMind Nutrition clients is generally a 90 day process, allowing the body to safely adjust and adapt to new foods and an intuitive portion-controlled form of eating. We aim for three meals and three snacks per day in order to maintain even insulin levels within the body.

Learn how to use essential oils SAFELY and for most benefit
Essential oils are potent and offer most benefit when used correctly. Did you know? Each oil possesses particular chemical make-up and the application is often specific to the particular oil. Therefore, it's important to understand how to best use an oil to suit your particular situation. Learn how to use pure essential oils safely, and for most benefit by subscribing to my essential oils education newsletter at left.
Your privacy is respected, always.

During the first 30 days, it is best to begin incorporating more raw fruits and vegetables. For those with a compromised digestive system, vegetables may be lightly cooked at a low temperature. Lightly cooked foods still allows the enzymes to remain intact while making the foods easier for the body to digest.

During the second phase, the body will have slowly begun a cleansing process and now we can introduce a 60-90% Raw Plan. This means even more fruits and vegetables, as well as being mindful of foods that are hard on the body, and foods that are nutrient-dense. The second phase will also bring the liver and kidneys into a more balanced state.

More Raw Foods

Along with the incorporation of more raw foods, we must also be mindful of our thoughts and emotions. It has been said that we become the thoughts that we think. The second phase of cleansing may bring forth a release of toxic emotions and thoughts.

In order for this to happen smoothly and naturally, it is best to avoid any negative triggers, and to be exposed to a more positive environment, friends and lifestyle. Instead of sitting in front of the tv in the evening and listening to the news or other negativity-producing information, we should begin to embrace other forms of entertainment, stillness and enjoy the outdoors. Taking the dog for a walk, or even going for a walk alone will have tremendous effects on the body and mind.

During the third phase, we can now go into a 100% raw plan for one to two days per week. A wonderful way to bring raw foods into the body is through juicing and making delicious shakes and smoothies. When we juice fruits and vegetables, they are able to reach the blood at a rapid rate. This will bring an incredible amount of energy into the body, as well as a greater sense of well-being.

Juicing also enables us to bring many more nutrients into the body in a condensed form. It may be a challenge to eat 5 to 6 different kinds of fruit and vegetables, however when we juice we can bring that into the body in a much smaller liquid quantity. During the third phase, we should get out there and try new fruits and vegetables. Are there any fruits and vegetables that you have wanted to try but never got around to? This is a great time to do so! Now that the body has been in a cleansing process, our taste buds begin to change and foods that may have been bland to taste before will now have a much more potent taste.

There are several simple shifts during this 90 day process that will bring the body into perhaps the most harmonious state it has ever experienced. As we cleanse the body of the toxins we have exposed it to, we also cleanse the mind. Weight loss will be a side-effect of this process, as the weight will come off easily and naturally. The body has 4 to 20 pounds of toxins within it. With cleansing, these toxins are simply excreted from the body. The end result of a healthy cleanse is a new way of looking at the lives we live and how powerful the body’s healing capacities are.

Each and every one of us are truly walking miracles!
