A Wake-Up Story

“I’m a friend who’s explaining how small changes add up to a safer home, and a healthier child.

Someone who talks about 100% certified toxic free alternatives to pesticides, herbicides, and pretty much any-cides.

It’s that simple. And then YOU teach a friend.

Before you know it, we’re all part of a movement to protect children all over the world.

That’s my goal. Together, we can change the world!”

Toxin Free For (Grand)Baby & Me!

Toxin Free For Baby & Me!I recently moved back to Vancouver (last autumn, to welcome my first grandbaby into the world) and at the same time was introduced to a more organic lifestyle. Though I can’t say I have completely made the transition, I am taking baby steps every day that are having a positive influence on my well-being and vitality.

The change that has had a major impact on my health is my switch to 100% non-toxic personal care products. I would not have believed (without experiencing it firsthand) the difference that using certified toxic-free products has made to the way my body FEELS – and my energy level is off the charts!  It has truly been life-changing for me, and the main reason I got involved in the company that manufactures these amazing products was that I did NOT want my sweet grandson Riley to have manmade chemical toxins put on his skin day in and day out, because I know that those chemicals are absorbed into the skin and accumulate, causing potential health problems.

I’m not about pushing products or a home-based business opportunity. I know that the people who resonate with what I believe in and what this company stands for will eventually be attracted to that aspect of what I’m doing.  But I do believe that EVERY parent and grandparent has the right to know the truth about what is really in the big brands they’ve been using for years!

If you are open to information, if you are looking for a better alternative, if you want to find out how to easily protect your family’s health – then please visit www.bit.ly/GlammaGoesGreenVideos and select “The Toxic Truth.”

I look forward to hearing your questions and feedback!

Freedom lies in being bold…

freedom-3“Freedom lies in being bold.”
~ Robert Frost

I recently moved cross-country and began a transitional job that I thought I was going to love, but it turned out that the work involved was absolutely not a match for me.  Completing a 7 hour shift felt like an eternity.  My co-workers were all friendly and caring people, and I genuinely admire their ability to focus their energies day after day to dedicated fundraising efforts on behalf of the charities they serve, but it just wasn’t my thing.

I’m gratefully willing to acknowledge my path lies in a different direction.  I understand that the opportunity in front of me has been there for awhile, but I am only now ready to receive it.  My daughter turns 21 this year, and she was a just a little girl when I wrote on my vision board that I wanted to “exclusively use high-quality organic personal care products” and “have a business that provides me with the opportunity to make a positive difference in the world, and be part of a global community of amazing friends and business associates.”

I’m so happy that Essante Organics is that business, and my vision has come to reality!!  I have waited all my life to find this opportunity, and I’m delighted to now wholeheartedly invest my full-time energies and talents in sharing the many life-enhancing (and life-changing!) health & happiness benefits of a toxic-free life.The products, the people, the compensation plan…it’s all an unmistakeable example of the fun and momentum in choosing to say ‘yes!’ in perfect timing as the world goes green.

I appreciate this incredible business model that creates a lasting positive impact upon this beautiful living earth, simply by educating and empowering people to choose greater planetary and personal health & wealth. I’m enjoying the outstanding mentoring and training available at no charge, and the company of the caring and generous people I have met here.

I especially adore the fact that my Essante Organics business provides me with the freedom to donate to programs and people who empower and uplift the many unremembered girls in our world who are ready to transcend the bonds of gender inequality.  To do that they need an education, and to go to school requires resources that are very often unavailable.  I have pledged to donate to programs like PLAN International’s “Because I AM A Girl” because I my research reveals that every 2 seconds a girl becomes a child bride somewhere in the world, the leading cause of death globally in teenage girls is childbirth, and girls are 3 times as likely as boys to be malnourished in developing countries.  It’s my heartfelt belief that it’s time for every kind of poverty, violence and slavery that millions of girls worldwide experience daily to give way to a more equitable and just life.

I will support programs that educate girls because research shows that millions of girls are not receiving an education right at a time when it has the power to transform their lives and the world around them. A girl who makes it through both high quality primary and secondary education is…

  • …less likely to experience violence or marry and have children whilst she is still a child.
  • …more likely to be literate, healthy and survive into adulthood, as are her children.
  • …more likely to reinvest her income back into her family, community and country.
  • …more likely to understand her rights and be a force for change.

It’s my personal vision that as each of us speaks our intent for the future and offers our energies (focus, time, and money) to the upliftment and empowerment of humanity, positive change can occur. My business mission is to teach and mentor you personally to live in healthy and abundant well-being, with the (time & financial) freedom to realize your dreams and live your true purpose… and to have you inspire others to do the same, as we work together to birth loving and sustainable solutions for our world.

I’m deeply grateful to have a business, and a life, that supports my vision.

Day 6: What Makes Your Heart Sing?

I’m so grateful that these last few months have been a study in what makes my heart sing.  With the end of a significant relationship and an unfamiliar (yet welcome) sense of expanded time, I’ve chosen to let Spirit flow through me and illuminate my passions and desires.

I’m drinking 1.5 litres of water a day, every day.  I’ve joined Curves and work out at least 4 days per week.  I’ve allowed myself the “luxury” of pure, organic food and body care products.  I’m honouring my body’s cues for food intake, and I’ve developed quite an appetite for Greek yogurt and chopped dried fruit sprinkled with cinnamon hemp seed granola, drizzled with pure maple syrup – for breakfast.

I’m choosing what feels GOOD more often in every day. Water, food, shelter/environment, relationships, commitments, everything…and it’s all improving on the daily, as my daughter would say.  I awaken early and spend time in sacred ceremony and journaling every morning, appreciating my amazing view of Lake Ontario and the changing skies of sunrise.   I record my day’s successes and inspirations in a “Positive Evidence Journal” before bed.  I am posting EVERY DAY (well, except for the first one 😉 ) in this Daily Blogging Challenge, which is really completely amazing.

I’m giving myself the invaluable gift of support via mentoring and community in Brenda MacIntyre’s “Step Into Your Birthright” program.  And although I appreciate the inspiration of many wonderful guides who have inspired my path here on this lovely blue plant, I have an especial appreciation for Abraham-Hicks.  Abe’s wisdom helped me to traverse the path of my son’s recovery from his serious auto accident and my daughter’s crazy adolesence.  As a result of these experiences, I know for a fact that my children are Divinely blessed and protected, and I also know in my bones that my attention and intention are powerful tools.

Creating my own heartsong music?  Flowing, cooking, singing, writing, dancing, loving, sweating, laughing, soothing, uplifting, feeling, being in Sacred Circle…that’s music to me.

What makes your heart sing?

Day 5: Now is the Time

Now is the Time

Every now and again, I find myself paddling madly upstream against the prevailing current of well-being, most especially when I’m judging myself for being human, imperfect, flawed.

Today, I choose I to celebrate my imperfection as the adventure of living, knowing that, as Thomas Drier so wisely reminds us, “Today should always be our most wonderful day.”

I so enjoy being here now, in this physical body – to love, to laugh, to delight in the beauty of this natural world and to flow juicy orgasmic energy to what aligns with my soul…that which nurtures and sustains and uplifts me.  I appreciate the opportunity to express my authentic gifts, to show up here on the page naked and unadulterated and seemingly vulnerable.  I’m seeing the value of being here fully in the moment, forgiving myself for being less than perfect, socially awkward, not up to my own standards.

I acknowledge that my harsh self-judgment is neither productive nor inspiring.  So I choose to remember that enjoying life is about being able to re-member to live in the now, recalling the true essence of BEing in this moment.

And so can you.
