The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Good

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post anything. This is how the last month has treated me.

The Good!

I set up a new page for my meditations that I’ll soon be making available to everyone. Check it out!


 

The human body is a fantastic machine. Awake or asleep your heart automatically pumps and circulates your blood, your lungs keep you breathing, your digestive systems digests the food you eat to give you the nutrients you need, and your body completes many other vital processes without you lifting a finger. Your body also has the phenomenal ability to bounce back and heal itself. Most of the time. Unfortunately, you may get to a point in your life when your body can no-longer work optimally.

Constant bombardments of stress, particularly sudden and intensely stressful situations, negative beliefs and thoughts that keep you bogged down, and many other daily problems can knock the body’s self-regulating mechanisms out of whack making it harder for your body to do its job. These complications can result in a decline of your energy and have a significant effect on the health of your body, mind, and spirit. Not only does an unbalanced overstressed lifestyle cause irritation, anger, and outbursts. Stress can cause you to suffer from headaches, stomach aches, muscle tension, and pain. It may lead you to feel anxious, restless, and depressed, or you may even start overeating, under-eating or reaching for alcohol or drugs for relief.


If you’re looking to clear your mind and reconnect with your inner self-meditation could be just the tool you need to calm down and enhance your awareness. Guided meditations can be a great tool to add to your toolbox.

Some of the benefits:

Meditation can be grounding and relaxing. Meditation can clear your brain of unwanted thoughts. Meditation can lift your spirit up to higher levels of awareness. Meditation can reduce stress. The best part: the only thing you need to do is listen and relax.

Are you willing to take 10-15 minutes out of your day to take care of your inner self? Once you get into the habit of meditating the benefits you’ll experience will make you wonder why you didn’t start this great habit sooner.

Chakras copyUnderstanding Chakras is an integral part of Reiki and energy healing. It’s believed that each of us has Chakra ‘wheels’ at the main energy centers in our bodies, which ‘turn’ as the life force energy moves through us. We have seven main Chakras, with each one relating to a specific location, function, and color. Reiki Masters can provide significant benefits to clients when applying Chakra balancing. By working on the Chakra areas, Reiki Masters can get the Universal Life Force Energy flowing which causes the Chakra wheels to start moving, removing slow or stuck energy. All of the tools you need to clear the clutter are within you!

 

Chakra balancing is an integral part of energy work. It helps us stay connected to the life force within us. When our chakras are blocked, our energy can become stagnant. Blocked chakras can affect us in many forms. Mental and physical illness or anger and depression are just a few of the ways stagnant energy can manifest. That being said~

I’m now going to take you on a journey to open your chakras, feel better, and sweep away the negative energies creating these blocks.

Coming Soon


The Bad!

I managed to get some kind of virus, and it was not the common cold, though it did feel like it started out as the common cold. I was able to push through the first stage of the virus and I got my YouTube account up plus I started working on my meditations for YouTube.


The Ugly:(

 

 

 

Not only does the virus going around our town linger, it comes back! I spent two more weeks feeling horrible! Fever, chills, and very low energy. Yep, I didn’t get much work done during that time.


The Good!

I’m feeling better. I’m still a little tired but that could be just the fall weather. While I was moping around the house sick I did find some new recipes to give all of you:)

Enjoy!


Cornish Game Hens

I only made a couple of adjustments to this recipe. I stuffed the hen with garlic and I added rosemary to the basting broth. I then let the broth sit for about 30 minutes before using it.

The bird came out of the oven flavorful, moist and delicious!

 French Almond Flour Crepes

These are so easy to make you’ll wonder why you hadn’t tried them before:)

I did puree up some frozen strawberries and I mixed the strawberries with cream cheese since I didn’t have any coconut cream on hand.

*She also has a recipe for avocado chocolate cookies I’d like to try*

I love to munch on beet chips sometimes and normally I buy hummus at the store, but this time I wanted to try my hand at making hummus, again. I still can’t get it quite as smooth as I’d like. It may be time to buy a new blender!

I did use smoked paprika instead of cayenne pepper

Ignite Talk & Full Body Health & Fitness

Good Afternoon everyone! I have some great news! I have two events coming up that I will be speaking in. WooHoo! It has been an insanely busy last month.

Ignite Talks: I will be presenting my business in 5 min, that means going over nutrition, Reiki, body butter, and CBD oil. All of the tools I use for stress. I will try and post a video of it after the event!

“Ignite Talks” described as “a fast-paced geek event” is making its Los Alamos debut June 16 at Los Alamos Makers on Orange Street.

Ignite talks first started in Seattle, Wash., 12 years ago and is now a global phenomenon with events around the world from New York City to Paris, France … and now Los Alamos.

Most of us have heard of TED talks. Unlike TED talks, Ignite talks have a very specific format and are designed to be very inclusive: Ignite’s official mission is “Everyone Speaks”.

The only requirement is that ‘speakers must build their presentations with 20 slides, each of which is shown for 15 seconds, giving each speaker five minutes”.

This particular format makes it fun for the audience as well as for the speakers. Anyone from public speaking novices to seasoned Toastmasters gets a fair shot.

The “Ignite Talks” team believes that “public speaking builds confidence in individuals and that events like Ignite build community. Our goal is to make it possible for anyone, anywhere, to learn to present their ideas and their stories.”

Los Alamos Makers has been granted the license to organize Ignite events. The first event is 5 p.m. Saturday, June 16 at Los Alamos Makers, 3540 Orange St., Suite LV1.

The community is invited to join the fun and just enjoy the talks or sign up to give a talk. The event is free and catered, so mark your calendars.

Los Alamos, it is now your time to shine!

Anyone willing to take on the Ignite challenge is encouraged to express interest and contact Los Alamos Makers using the form at LosAlamosMakers.org/Ignite.

An optional practice/training session will be available for speakers the week before the event. Anyone enthusiastic about anything qualifies to give a talk.

Forget the “15 minutes of fame”! You only have five minutes, so “Enlighten Us … But Make It Quick!”

My first interview just hit the papers too. Check it out! Thank you, Carol Clark, at the Daily Post:) And Kaylen M. Pocaterra for making this happen! https://www.ladailypost.com/…/victoria-leduc-tigers-eye-hea…

Many people are looking for answers to help relieve the stress of fatigue. One might reach for a cup of coffee or a sweet treat to get through our daily routine. This solution works great for a couple of hours and then after we return home, the tiredness creeps back in. Over time this diet can make fatigue worse due to poor nutrition.

Victoria LeDuc, owner, and operator of Tigers Eye Healing is a health coach and energy healer. On LeDuc’s website, https://tigerseyehealing.com/ she talks about these poor foods, which she calls High GIs.

“These are foods you should stay away from to stay healthy,” LeDuc said. “They are high in sugar and have little nutritional value. Unhealthy adrenals can’t handle heavy loads of sugar and will leave you even more exhausted, so you need to be aware when consuming these foods.”

LeDuc struggled with low energy, which eventually led her to open Tigers Eye Healing

“I’ve walked the path of adrenal fatigue and total exhaustion from dealing with too much stress which led to high anxieties,” she said. “After struggling with my exhaustion for far too long, I went back to school and focused on my health every chance I had which led me to become a health coach.”

She offers a nutritional package to get clients on the right track to a healthy lifestyle that allows customers to feel better and gives them the energy you are meant to have, LeDuc said.

After discovering the self-healing abilities of a proper nutrition LeDuc wanted more options to help her feel great.

“Feeding my body with clean, healthy foods helped bring me back from the dead, so to speak,” LeDuc said. “But I needed more so I became a Reiki master and energy healer. Using energy healing alongside nutrition has helped me to heal faster than I expected along with giving me the full spectrum of holistic healing I need.”

LeDuc’s Reiki attunements provide relaxation, Chakra balancing, as well as stress reduction and pain relief, she said. She invites clients to her home studio in Los Alamos and also welcomes online sessions for further healing options.

Victoria LeDuc is very excited to share her new-found health with residents of Los Alamos and hopes to see healing seekers at the Ignite Talk at 5 p.m. June 16 at Los Alamos Makers Space. She will be showcasing her new business in a quick five-minute talk.

In addition to the Ignite Talk, she will be hosting her own function 4-7 p.m. July 20 at  UNM-LA for anyone interested in seeing Reiki treatment first hand and learning more about her business, Tigers Eye Healing.
