Spirituality vs. Reality

Many people have their own definition of what spirituality is. I scoured the internet to find a definition that resonated with me.

“Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a Spirituality-Feature-Imagesense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life.” For me, that has got to be the best description of spirituality.

I was talking to someone several years ago before my spiritual journey began, and she said “OH I sense that you are really spiritual.” I replied with “oh yes, I go to church consistently.” She laughed and said that is not what she meant nor is it what she sensed. While that was not the beginning of my spiritual journey, it was certainly the beginning of my understanding of the meaning.

When people say they are spiritual, others look at them like their lives are all gravy. Like all that spiritual people do is light candles, meditate and do yoga. The reality of a spiritual journey is FAR from that. I mean there are some yoga days, meditation and Saging going on but for the most part, being spiritual is experiencing life from a holistic perspective and learning how to react and respond to all that life has to offer.

As I journeyed down my spiritual path, I experienced a LOT of lessons. Some were tough and painful while others were quick and painless. Some lessons repeated themselves. I viewed everything and everyone from a different perspective. The real reality of spirituality is that it looks different for everyone. Everyone’s experiences and journeys are different. My whole reality of the world had changed. How I watched TV and movies changed. I would go to the movies with someone and after say “OMG did you see how the main character did X,Y, and Z? And the person would look at me and say NO, and ask how did I arrive at that? LOL

I became an ordained minister in September of 2014 and added that title to the NUBODI business. I felt like people thought I was a preacher or some scripture quoting person from how people responded to what they saw. For me, I didn’t feel like the title of ordained minister reflected who I was as a person or how I wanted to interact with clients. I researched spirituality and reviewed my experiences to later change the title from Ordained Minister to Spiritual Advisor. That title fit me more with who I was becoming and the journey I had been on. Many people responded to that title more positively than the latter.

For me, to be spiritual is to be in tune with self, with spirit and to strengthened my relationship with my spirit. I have developed programs to coach people on beginning their spiritual journey as well as constructed unique ways to counsel individuals through spiritual direction. There are many ways to a spiritual journey. Let NUBODI assist you with yours.

Why Health Coaching is Successful

Holistic Health Word Cloud

A health coach is the person who encourages you to be the best and healthiest YOU that you could be. Coaching in general follows a structured and formal process to achieving a goal(s). Through coaching, individuals are propelled to focus on the future. That first meeting is all about educating the patient on the health coach’s supportive, long-term role in care. During the initial consultation, the health coach gathers information to determine which direction the client wants to go in. The questions that are asked dive deep into the desires to pull out goals that the client can handle and achieve successfully. Together client and coach create S.M.A.R.T. goals that work. In health coaching, there could be many desired goals such as weight loss, diet & nutrition management, exercise & working out or just learning how to make healthier food choices.

NUBODI health coaching provides an educational, motivational and inspirational holistic experience. Clients are taught HOW to change their less favorable habits into more positive and supportive life habits. Clients receive motivation in various ways. Email checkins, uplifting texts and complementary follow up sessions. Everything you need to stay on track and keep moving forward. Life can get very active for many and having someone encouraging your wellness journey can be essential.

One of the main reasons health coaching is successful is the use action planning to help clients take a more progressive approach to changing their health behaviors. Health coaches make suggestive plans but in the end, the client and the coach, together, agree what would work best for the client. The client has a very functioning role in creating a solid plan.

Another reason health coaching is successful is the flexible scheduling. After the initial consultation and coaching program is set up, the client and coach can schedule the frequency of appointments the client needs and progress, from three month to a year. Clients can make appointments by phone so that the information they need can be received without traveling.

And lastly, with each scheduled session, consistent, thorough documentation is made possible through the use of customized templates to track clients. Clients also have access to the software to view and track their progress. So you see, there are many benefits to health coaching to be successful. All you have to do is sign up.

Emotional Eating

Emotional eating is a big problem in America and many people aren’t even aware that they have a problem with eating their emotions. I realized my own emotional eating while going through a highly intense mental and emotional involvement with a guy. Assorted Junk Food

After my third binge weekend at 7-Eleven that consisted of chocolate chip cookies, cheesy popcorn, a bag of mini Twix, 2 Cokes and ho hos, I knew I was in trouble. I recognized what was triggering those unhealthy food trips. When I felt abandoned and unloved, I ran to what I felt loved me the most, junk food. Junkfood perceived like it understood and cared for me but it didn’t. As I gained weight, skin broke out and my attitude became uncharacteristic of me, I had to sit down with self and re-evaluate my life. Knowing your triggers is one thing, understanding them and how to heal them is another. I had to go back to basics. Luckily for me, I am trained in various holistic health and wellness practices that I can pull from and reclaim my power. There were several methods that I used to help me overcome my emotional eating, rarely does just one method ever work. Essential oils were a big help, in addition to a full diet change and a complete nutritional program that I put myself on.

NUBODI has a variety of products and services that help facilitate healing and change however if you have a mental health disorder, there are some good therapist that I could recommend. NUBODI products and services compliment any medical service or prescription that you have.

Energy drinks vs ENERGY drinks

Growing up as an athlete, Gatorade was THEE sports drink. You weren’t considered a REAL athlete unless you had a few bottles in your workout bag. Now, there are so many energy drinks to choose from, it can get confusing as to what is what. So let me give you my clever perspective on energy drinks. The commercials boasted about how it gives you energy and fills up with electrolytes.

Most of the energy drinks are loaded with sugar and caffeine. With such a jolt from all of that sugar and caffeine, you are sure to get a buzz. The loaded caffeine and sugar, quickly spikes up your blood levels in addition to the adrenals only to bring you back down just as quick.  By coming down so quickly, the body becomes sluggish and craves for more. Before you know it, you are drinking another can of sugar and caffeine to bring you back up. This cycle can put wear and tear on the adrenals and blood sugar levels to the point of causing damage. Very few brands of energy drinks contain any of the necessary vitamins and minerals that you need to sustain the momentum you have without drinking more.

There are all natural drinks out that offer the energy you need to get your through the day and add the necessary vitamin and minerals you need. Green drinks for example, depending on what’s in them, can provide a full serving of fruits and vegetables, fiber and in some cases even protein. Juicing can bring energy to your morning with juice extracted from fresh fruit and vegetables. Not only do you get a few hours of energy from juicing, you also get the much needed vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Another way to get an all natural energy drink in your day is with smoothies. Smoothies can supply the body with fresh fruits, vegetables, fiber and protein when made right. While all natural juices and smoothies contain sugar and the body doesn’t recognize it from table sugar or natural sugar, juices and smoothies supply the body with so much more once the sugar has burned off.

There’s another family of beverages that can give you energy.  All natural drinks like teas, elixirs and tinctures can also provide the energy you are looking for without the sugar and caffeine. Not only are these drinks loaded with energy producing ingredients, they provide vitamins and minerals to help heal the body and keep it functioning properly. Herbs, flowers, herbal extracts and spices go into the development of teas, elixirs and tinctures. These ingredients have the spiritual properties of the plants and flowers for healing on all levels, which makes them excellent beverages.

Forms of Blessings

Forms of Blessings
Count all of your blessings big and small.

Blessings come in many forms and sometimes they can be hard to identify if you are looking for your blessing in an a specific form.

One time around a Thanksgiving when I was unemployed, I was trying to manifest money to buy food. I didn’t tell anyone that I needed food or that I didn’t have money for food because I thought my circumstances would have have changed by then. So I’m trying to work my mojo and manifest some money for a NICE Thanksgiving feast and nothing is happening. I’m getting frustrated and nervous as I was a single parent and the sole provider. A day had passed and someone called to say that their church had extra Thanksgiving baskets left but it didn’t come with a turkey and did I know anyone who needed one. I said well I need one and she said ok I will be by tomorrow. The next day I was still frustrated that I had not manifested money when I received another call from my neighbor who said she had to go out of town unexpectedly and had a frozen turkey that she couldn’t take with her and did I want it? I said absolutely. My Thanksgiving feast was coming together but I couldn’t see that because I was still trying to manifest money. Sitting on the floor feeling sorry for myself, I was guided to look at someone on the television talking about the difference between cash and money. He said cash is coins or notes and money is the assets, property, and resources owned by someone or something. I had gotten exactly what I asked for which was money for food, anything of monetary value, in the form of the food given to me. I learned a very valuable lesson back then which was one, I was a great manifester and two, to be aware of my words. Words have power. As a spiritual advisor I have assisted many people since then in reflecting on issues from a holistic perspective through spiritual guidance.

21 Rule

They say that 21 days of implementing a positive change, creates a habit and after 90 days of consistency, that positive change becomes a life style change.

Rule21

 

Every year for years, I would write out my new year resolutions, which according to Wikipedia, is a tradition, “where a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life.” For most, resolutions do not work and here is the reason why. If it is a habit that you are trying to change, you have to change the habit with a positive habit with discipline and purpose. The reason my resolutions did not work for me, was because I just had a list of things I wanted to change but didn’t have the discipline for positive change or a new habit and positive habit that I was changing the old habit into. After I learned the S.M.A.R.T. goal method, I learned how to attach the habit to a goal to achieve a better outcome and results. While I don’t create resolutions anymore, I do continue to create S.M.A.R.T. goals.  As a NUBODI Health Coach, Diet & Nutrition Coach, Holistic Life Coach and Holistic Life Purpose Coach, I can assist you with creating S.M.A.R.T. goals for positive lifestyle changes as well. Coaching with NUBODI is a partnership where the client is educated, motivated and inspired to level up. Goals are co-created with you the client and followed up with deadlines and then coupled with check-ins and tough love. Clients are empowered to make life style changes that last.

Need help with creating life style changes?
