Make a Decision, Then Providence Moves... by Jac

The very first time I received a foot zone, I knew I needed to learn it. For three years, I let myself want in idleness. I lacked the courage to make it happen. I was holding myself back from receiving valuable knowledge, incredible blessings, and life-changing experiences. Then one day I came across this quote I had written down in a college class several years before:

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves, too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.” —William Hutchinson Murray

Suddenly, I had to move forward! I hadn't a clue how to make things work, especially financially, to take the zone class. Yet somehow it didn't matter—I realized that it wasn't up to me, anyway. I had to trust that it was time to get out of my comfort zone. It was time to progress!

Immediately, I got online and began researching schools. One stuck out. I called the owner, Brad Noall. He informed me that classes started in less than two weeks. 

"Impossible!" I thought. Or was it?

He then told me that if timing was right, it would all work out. He urged me to think about it and let him know. 

I told him I already knew and added that my mom would be taking the class with me and I'd have her call him. Then I promptly called my mom and told her that I had signed up for the foot zone class, that I'd told the owner about her too, and that she would be giving him a call. She kind of freaked out and notified me she had just given her two weeks notice at her job and would have no way to pay for the class herself. I repeated Brad's words of wisdom and told her that if it was the right time, it would all work out. 

And guess what? It did. For both of us. Somehow, the finances were there… the availability was there. All because we made decisions and trusted in the blessings that would follow—blessings that we never could have comprehended at that time.

If you have ever felt the pull to learn the foot zone, why not now? We are still accepting registration for our new spring class beginning on Friday and Saturday of next week. We look forward to hearing from you!

2013 World Tapping Summit

If you are looking for different ways to release emotion, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Tapping is a good one to look into. The summit started yesterday, but you may still listen to the replay of Day 1 until 8pm EST tonight. 

Here is the link:

I would encourage you to listen and tap along throughout the next 9 days and see how it works for you. They cover topics from finances to weight to aches and pains to relationships.

I'll admit I was very skeptical when I listened to my first World Tapping Summit in 2011. I was at work, so I listened, but I couldn't tap along. However, I did take copious notes and later put it to the test on my lunch break in the privacy of my car. I felt a little weird as I tapped through the script. As I neared the finish, a crushing pain consumed my chest and I knew a panic attack had just come on. (I had released something big that opened up some serious anxiety that needed to be released.)

Luckily, I thought to tap through what I was feeling in that moment. Within minutes, I was perfectly and completely calm. I went through the remainder of the day feeling better and significantly lighter than I had felt in weeks. I was sold. EFT is incredible! I don't know how else to say it.

Seriously, try it. What have you got to lose?

The Only Way to Prevent or Reverse Type II Diabetes—Hungry for Change

This is a very informative article. Most of us know and care about one or more individuals who has Type II Diabetes, or is well on their way to having it. Type II Diabetes does not have to be a life sentence.

Hungry for Change—Kris Carr

Another great video. Kris talks about how she stabilized a rare stage four cancer through proper nutrition and self care.

I absolutely love Hungry for Change! They share with the world what they've learned through about transforming health when an illness struck a family member. They believe that "your body is worthy of good care and that nobody is more suitable qualified to care for it than yourself." 

I whole-heartedly agree.

Great Evil Dane... by Jac

It's a beautiful day for a ride, or so I thought.

A friend and I recently joked that I get hurt just so I'll have something to blog about. Not exactly true, but I can see how it would cause one to wonder… Ready for the latest?

Tuesday morning last week was gorgeous outside—I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to go cycling in the warm, overcast weather. Although I miss my Utah hills, I can't deny that the flat, Idaho country is quite breathtaking at times. I couldn't have been happier as I breathed in the beautiful country and adored one charming yard, in particular, as I passed it by. 

Two minutes later, my emotions boiled as angry tears spilled from my eyes and my upper lateral, and slightly posterior, left thigh seared in pain. The madder I got, the worse it hurt.

What happened to cause such a dramatic shift? A big dang dog happened. So much for peace, tranquility, and an effective workout. 

I noticed him out of the corner of my eye at the same moment he saw me and took off running. For a second, I thought I was safe because there was a fence, but when I glanced back and saw him race through an opening, fear gripped my heart. I started praying out loud, pleading for protection from this animal as tall as my bike.

Upper lateral, and slightly posterior thigh.
Before I knew it, he was galloping alongside me, slobber flinging out of his mouth. Gross! I soon noticed he was running me off the road. Seriously!? I knew if I lost the pavement, I'd most likely flip—I was in low gear and cruising along pretty fast. I edged my way back toward the center of the road. 

He growled fiercely, viscously turned his head, and sunk his teeth into my leg. At that point, I'd felt completely abandoned from heavenly help and began my attempt to talk the beast down. He continued growling and kept at my pace for what seemed like forever. I added more verbal pleas for angelic assistance. 

I had the distinct impression to keep the pace—if I were to slow down, who knows what he would do? And if I were to speed up, I believe he would consider it a challenge and take me down and out. 

Forearm bruising. No broken skin.
Suddenly, he went for my forearm. I jerked away and successfully maintained balance on my bike. I may not have been quick enough to escape the bite, but luckily he didn't get through the skin this time. He attempted a couple more bites, failed, and then he slowed down just enough to go for my back tire. Devil dog!!

Thankfully, he missed, lost interest, turned around and headed home. As I peddled away, I wondered why I hadn't been protected. I said my prayers before my ride, just as I always do… Those thoughts didn't last, because I could see several ways in which that could have turned out worse than it did, and because of heavenly help, I still made it home safely.

I've learned a few good things from this experience:

1) Tetanus shots are a good thing and bring great peace of mind, for there is very little that can be done naturally if a person happens to get tetanus. (I was kind of freaking out on Sunday because I hadn't been able to get my booster yet...)

2) We are never left alone. There is always a greater power there to help, even if it doesn't feel like it at the time. You'll see when you look back on a difficult experience, trust me.

3) Keep the pace in life, even when it gets scary or hard. If you slow down, you become subject to distraction and other things that would prevent you from reaching your final destination. And if you go too fast, you become a target to those things that can easily drag you down.

4) I'm grateful for my unbendable quality of stubbornness and for my ability to mask my emotions in the midst of a crazy situation. Otherwise, I would have been lunch for that beast.
