PATIENCE...THE FOUNDATION OF TRANSFORMATION

"Transformation can only happen through the heart center. We need to develop a strong spiritual heart that permits differences, even if we do not agree. We need to have compassion for the areas where we resist change. We need to soften our hearts and embrace cultures and ideas that may seem foreign to us" Dr. Monica Bickerstaff

DR. MONICA'S WISE WOMAN WISDOM: HONORING YOUR BODY-JOY!

My Dream, MY Intention, MY Promise to you is to BREATHE a RE-NEWED sense of Happiness, Well-Being & Wealth Prosperity into your Body, Mind & Spirit....this is the TRUE definition of HOLISTIC HEALTH! ?

1. Ground yourself
You cannot be fully present in your life if you are only in your head. It is important to be connected to your body and your spirit to gain full access to your power. In the words of Screenwriter Mogul, Shonda Rhimes "DANCE IT OUT!"

2. Honor Your Feelings
If you get stuck in the “shoulds” there is a lack of connection and the energy level goes down. When fear is present, give your inner child a hug.

3. Look for the joy in the present
Look for the simple things that make you smile. Appreciate what you do have: stop focusing so much on what you do not have. Speak only words of Gratitude.

4. Acknowledge yourself as ENOUGH and  treat yourself with the self-care that you would freely give to a cherished person in your life.
You will naturally notice a greater willingness to let go of unhealthy, destructive behaviors or growth inhibiting relationships of all kinds.

5. Take small consistent steps towards achieving your goals
Break your goals down into doable action steps. Commit to 10 minutes of meditation, do 20 minutes of YOGA.

6. Get support
Know that you do not have to do everything yourself. Connect to a supportive community. Find an exercise partner. Hire a coach. Get a venting partner.

7. Be aware of your negative brain chatter…and find ways to deal with them
Negative voices in our heads create stress and make it harder to move forward. It is important for you to be the internal traffic controller- Learn to be a master of your mind. Get help if you need it.

8. Let GOD be the CEO of your life
The past is over and NOW is the time when you co-create your future. The Divine may have bigger plans for you so always add “this or something better” when setting goals.

?      Breathwork for Clearing Trauma Energy from the Body
by Dr. Monica Bickerstaff Riley

Create a safe sanctuary by first clearing whatever space you will use with a sage smudge, lighting candles, putting on light music, and gathering blankets and pillows for your comfort.

Laying comfortably on the ground or in your bed, supported and warm, relax into your body.

Begin with natural breath, at which point you may feel into where your hands want to be – perhaps next to your body with palms facing up, perhaps one hand on your belly and one on your heart.

Begin by inhaling deeply into your belly, then a secondary deep inhale through your heart. This should feel like you are flooding these areas with oxygen. Bring your awareness to any thoughts or feelings that come up, noting them, inviting them to flow freely.

Exhale out of your mouth, bringing awareness to trusting in love and guidance.

Breathe. Relax. Feel.

Moving in this way – belly, heart, mouth – repeat for up to 30 minutes of active breathing, maximum, followed by 15 of regular, relaxed breathing.

Be mindful to stop if you truly feel uncomfortable, slow down when necessary, and tune in to your body. Allow yourself to cry. Scream. Vocalize however you need to. If messages – sentences, affirmations, mantras – come up for you, repeat them silently out loud as feels appropriate.

When you feel that you are finished, stay in a resting Savasana position and return to natural breath. You may feel tingling, tightness in your hands, or a sense of mild physical exhaustion. These are all temporary and are signs that you have really moved some things around.

Afterward, you may have heightened sensitivity, so it’s best to avoid substances and loud noise/bright light. Treat yourself with great reverence to keep the energy flowing, and pay attention to what appears in your dreams after this practice.

Have A Berry Intoxicating Summer

by Dr. Monica Bickerstaff Riley, DHM

Summertime is an especially bountiful season to enjoy the abundant health benefits of raspberries! These berries are tiny, tasty and tantilizingly colorful and they protect everything from your head to your heart.xz5kf2kikvx5r4kh4risaayccawfwv7t.jpg

Raspberries are also "berry-beneficial" for our health. What makes berries so special is their high levels of phytochemicals; nutrients that help protect cells from damage.

 

  • Berries Help Manage Diabetes: Raspberries are an excellent source of fiber. They rank low on the glycemic index and they're a good fruit option for managing blood sugar levels. According to Copperman, "because they come with fiber, they are beneficial in a diabetic diet as a serving of fruit."
  • Berries Might Prevent Parkinson's: According to a recent study published in the Journal of Neurology, people who eat at least two servings of berries a week, have a 25% less chance of developing Parkinson's Disease.
  • Berries Boost Memory: Studies by the Cleveland Clinic suggest increasing your intake of berries can help slow cognitive decline normally associated with aging.
  • Berries Slow Tumor Growth: Raspberries are a good source of phytonutrients and antioxidants. Rich in ellagic acid, this tannin found in raspberries prevents cell damage from free radicals and slows tumor growth.
  • Fight Cancer with Berries: Research published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis suggests that flavonoids in raspberries may help reduce colon cancer risk.

 

Boost your grill power with this Savory BBQ sauce! This sweet, tangy smoky sauce is terrific brushed on grilled meat or veggies.

 

Raspberry-Ginger BBQ Sauce:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 tbs. chopped gingerroot
  • 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbs. adobo sauce
  • 2 tbs. honey
  • 3 tbs. molasses
  • 1/4 c. minced onion

 

Simmer all ingredients together in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook about 20-25 minutes.

Shopping and Storage Tips:

  • Select plump, brightly colored berries and remove any soft or moldy ones to prevent cross-contamination.
  • Raspberries keep best in a moisture proof container in the refrigerator. Wash them right before eating.
  • To keep raspberries fresh longer, swish them in a basin filled with a solution of three parts water to one part white vinegar.
