Weightloss and Loving Myself

January 28, 2016

A couple of people recently have asked me how I lost the weight.  I was almost 200 lbs. in 2011.  Now I am 144.4.  I have lost 55 lbs., well, more like 70+ since I gained some back and lost it again.  lol

When they asked, I immediately went to the step by step process of how I did it.  I started by going to the Metabolic Research Center and lost 41 lbs. in 6 months.  I drank protein drinks, ate the correct foods together to shed the pounds.  I went to a counselor at the center and changed my attitude toward food.  I made my meal and ate before I made the family meal so I was not hungry when I made their meal.  I had desire, dedication and determination.  Brian helped me by telling me chips and goodies and things I thought I wanted tasted like Kettle corn.  That sent the taste of Kettle corn taste into my mouth and I instantly did not want it as I do not like Kettle corn. I can’t think of others right now.  I know there were more… Mind games. They worked for me.  Along the way I read the book Eat Right for your Blood type.  And so many other books like: The Paleo diet, The JJ Virgin diet, Al Roker: Never Goin’ Back…   I read the books, pick out what worked for me and discarded the rest.

All these books and things helped me loose the weight.  Unfortunately, I gained 15 lbs back fairly quickly.  I lost 35 lbs. after starting at T. Rowe Price January 2015.  They say that people gain the TRP 20 or 3o or 40.  I did the opposite, which was so great. I went for a walk almost every break every day.  I did it to help loose weight, help see foods and mostly because it cleared my mind and enabled me to go on with my day of talking to people on the phones.

The thing I forgot to tell the people that asked how I lost the weight was that

I was able to keep the weight off when I Learned to Love myself.

When I Loved myself enough not to poison my body with foods that do not serve me. When I was able to remove carbs from my life. Carbohydrates do not serve my body well at all. I stopped White sugar, white flour and processed foods. It is funny because when I was so overweight, I did not know what foods were protein.  I did not even know what a carb was.  Everyone is different, everyone needs to learn what foods are healthy for their body and what foods are toxic to their body.

I have shared how I learned to Love myself in other blogs.  I really do Love Myself now and care what I put into my body. Things I eat affect me so much more now. Bread for me causes severe bloating.  Chocolate makes my heart race.  Sugar does too. I now listen to my body and do my best to give it what it desires and stop giving it what does not serve it’s higher purpose.

Learn to Love Yourself!

That is what I recommend as the Best way to loose weight and keep it off.

My GRAND Adventure Starts Now

January 26, 2016

10 years ago today we moved to Colorado and started our Adventure here.  I would not change any of my Life Adventure.  Especially this Colorado Adventure.  Oh how I’ve Grown by leaps and bounds.  I am Grateful for all the ups and downs and all that I have learned along the way to bring me to this point in my Life. This point of surrender. This point of power. This point of taking complete responsibility and decisions in Creating my own Beautiful life.

Sunday, God presented this new Adventure to me.  An exciting, yet quite SCARY Adventure. He has actually been preparing me for quite some time to take on this Adventure.  He has prepared me to follow his guidance, to Create my own Life.  He has Gifted me with Healing Hands.  Now I am going to step out and combine the two.  I am stepping out in FAITH to do the work GOD has called me to do.  My Purpose, My Mission.  To assist people in their Healing.  To Clear every room I walk into of All Negativity.  Similar to what I have mentioned in earlier posts except for one thing – I left my job today.  My Wonderful, Secure job at T. Rowe Price.  I Love everyone I worked with and the Company itself. I truly enjoyed my year there.  God clearly stated that all I had completed all I was to accomplish at this time. I pray that all continue their own Healing Journey and I am willing to assist, reach out to me. I went around giving my normal Hugs and saying Hello to Special People, they did not know that it was really GoodBye. I will miss the People SO Very much.  I am grateful that I will be able to keep in contact with many of them!

Stepping out in Surrender and FAITH, complete FAITH that God will provide all I need.  He always has supplied everything I need and so much more. I see it so clearly now. How did I not Believe and See it before? I now surrender and have FAITH that HE will provide for each and every moment of my life to come! I am to help people understand that this is now a time of BELIEVE it and you will SEE it! Instead of the old saying see it and believe it. I am here to CREATE my own Wonderful Life I have always Dreamed about.  If you can Dream it, it can become a REALITY!  Believe it and you WILL see it.

My plan is to tie up some loose ends.  Take a few days to commune with God about my next steps. To CREATE my Future.  Then, in a few weeks Start this Crazy, Awesome, Wonderful Adventure.  It will be interesting to see where God leads, whom he has prepared for me to meet. What I CREATE. I am already Looking into people’s eyes and connecting with so many more than I ever have before.  I am looking for opportunities to GREET people to CONNECT with them, not just complete the steps of my day to day necessities.

When I started this Healing Journey, I wanted to Save Everyone, Heal Everyone.  I have learned that I can LOVE them and that might just have to be enough. Some along the way have felt the Power that surges through my hands into their body.  Some choose to embrace the Healing Energy and allow it to change their Lives Completely in profound ways.  Some choose to ignore it completely. (I have to say that although I do not understand choosing this option, that I completely honor their choice) We ALL have a CHOICE. Some accept the momentary Healing and then do not allow it to change their lives, do not seek out more Healing, and do not keep growing and Healing. It IS a choice we all make.

Healing does not mean everything gets EASY instantly.  Healing can be difficult.  Releasing can be difficult.  Accept God’s provision or turn it down. HE has abundant LIFE ready and available to all who ask.  Ask and you shall Receive, HE tells us. I pray more start ASKING and RECEIVING. Even though it can be a difficult Journey, it is SO VERY worth it.  FREEDOM AWAITS on the other side of the difficulty!

I had some lofty visions and dreams about others joining me on this Journey. Buses of people engaged in the Healing process of all we meet. Together in community Traveling the Country, the World – Healing. Others are not ready yet. Maybe someday, maybe not. I have learned that This is the time for me! I now set off on my own. I can wait no longer. I have a Mission, I will SERVE. Here I am World. I am Ready! Let’s get this Party started. I am adopting my sister’s motto: Pick a date, pack your bags and just go.

I have prayed for and sent Healing Energy to All my family, All my friends, All that I meet, All that I have talked to on the phones. I have intended that my Presence, my Hugs, my Touch and my Words be Healing to All who choose to Receive. All have a choice to Receive the Healing or not whether verbally or on a Soul level. I have given Freely. All have chosen. I am Honored.

I have learned so much just in this past 6 months.  I have completed my process of learning to Love and be Loved again. I Love myself! I Love others! I now understand the meaning of Unconditional Love and experience it each day. I am filled with Unlimited, Unconditional Divine Love. I choose to Pour out this Love. I Choose JOY. I Choose to see the World and Live Life to the Fullest! One Glorious Step at a time.

I have received so many signs that this is the right thing for me RIGHT NOW.

Then… at 3am…, doubts creep in…  You are a Fool…  You can’t do this… Do this alone? Leave your job? Are you Fucking Crazy?

No! ALL negativity is shed from my Life!

I AM Confident! I am Bold! I am Strong! Here I AM World.  Here I AM!

I AM a Phoenix RISING!

I CHOOSE to move forward with Confidence and Courage!

THEN I go back to sleep about 4 or 5 am and wake rested and rejuvenated a few hours later.  Prepared to take my next step! Preparation is KEY.

My verse for this year: Isaiah 40:31 ‘but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like Eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

I AM SO Very BLESSED with Family and Friends!  I have 9 States on my Travel Wish List so far! I will let you know when I get near your location!  Each day I will wake and ask “What is Next?” And Follow whatever Direction I receive/create!

Thank you for reading my blog and Joining me on this Journey! I feel your Love and Prayers and Presence with me! I LOVE you ALL!

Until next time.

All My LOVE to you, Tammy Joyful

Am I a Healer?

January 1, 2015

Hello New Year!  I welcome you with open arms.  I have to say 2015 was a bit tough.  I am ready for a year of Miracles.  A year of Abundance.  A year of Happiness.  A year of Dancing and Singing.  A year of Love, Unconditional Love.

I am so Blessed and people say they want to be me.  After all, I am Tammy Joyful.  I dance and sing and choose to be joyful.  Most of the time…  I have to say, I fall into bouts of self-pity and depression.  Not wanting to live anymore.  Yes, I have contemplated suicide more than once in my life. More than once in the last month.  I don’t want to do all the things I have to do.  I don’t want to face the things I have to face.  At times, I don’t want to go on.  I want to take the “easy” way out as Dan did.  Why couldn’t we work?  Why couldn’t I live that life?  Why don’t I want to live this life now? Why do I want to call it quits…  This after I just wrote a “Love Letter” to myself. How can I shift so drastically, so suddenly?  Do you?  Does this happen to you to?

The roller coaster of Life is getting milder I have to say.  These bouts of depression used to last months, even years.  Now that I have gone through MUCH Healing, they only last days or even hours if I am determined to move on.   And most of the time I am determined.  Determined to Move On.  To be Joyful.  To be Happy. I Am Thankful for my continued Healing. I thought “A Healing” would “fix” me.  I was So excited for my First Healing Session, I was sure God was going to Heal me Completely in that hour.  When it didn’t “fix” me I became depressed again and went into self-pity mode.  “Why didn’t God want to “Fix” me? What have I done wrong?” Since then, I have learned that Life is a Continuous Healing Journey.

I choose to Move On in 2016.  I choose Joy!  I choose to remove all the clutter from my Life.  All the clutter from my Mind.  I choose to LEAVE depression behind me in the PAST.  I choose to LEAVE suicidal thoughts in the past.  I choose once and for all to unwind the mess inside me and Move on to the Mission I have been called to. I choose to remove from my Life all that no longer serves my Highest Good.  All that is holding me back. I determine to choose a Life of Abundance.  The Abundant Life God has promised us all.  I choose to serve God by serving people. Allowing God’s Unlimited Divine Power to surge through me to others.  To assist others in their Healing process, their Healing Journey. To help others along their OWN path.  To assist others in connecting to God, their DIVINE SOURCE.

Yes, I can connect to that Divine Power, Love, Energy.  Oh and when I choose to tap into it, how GLORIOUS.  What a GIFT I have been given.  I can’t even begin to describe how GLORIOUS it is.  In Truth, I am continuously CONNECTED to DIVINE. When I allow the Energy to flow through me to others the connection intensifies. I cannot describe how GOD uses me to clear, align and shift others back to HIM. Back to their connection to UNIVERSAL SOURCE.  I see their distressed eyes before beginning a session. I feel their distressed bodies.  I unwind the mess inside of them and Love seeing their clear, joyful eyes when the session is over.  What they say is Wow, That felt So good.      What did I do? I assisted them in connecting to their HIGHER SOURCE. Every person is different.  Every session is different. One thing remains the same.  I remove the blocks and connect people to their HIGHER SOURCE.  To GOD.  I help REMIND you of who you are. Allow you to re-focus on your Own Path.  To Move On as I am Moving On.  To continue your Own Healing in this Journey of Life.  As I continue with my Own Healing.

Am I a Healer?  You decide. I Love this definition of a Healer by Jeff Foster:  “A True Healer does not heal you; she simply reflects back to you your innate capacity to heal. She is a reflector, or a loving transparency.”

Do I Heal you?  No.     I Align, Clear and Shift you back to DIVINE SOURCE so you REMEMBER how to Heal yourself.

I rejuvenate Healers to REMIND you of who you are, to re-focus your energy, to lift you to a higher frequency to better assist your clients.

This is who I AM.  This is what I DO.
