Luminosity Podcast #6 De’Nicea Hilton – Fix My Period Now!

I am super excited to be here today to talk about …are you ready for this …..our Periods!  For this, we have the pleasure of speaking with De-Nicea Hilton.

Saving uteruses and making babies is the life of De’Nicea Hilton, Period & Fertility Strategist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine. She works with women who are calling out of work or canceling plans to only be stuck in bed all day curled up with a heating pad taking medication after medication to alleviate her pain from her period.

Or, she has been trying so hard to have a baby getting test after test and spending thousands on fertility treatments to no avail and to only be left confused when she’s been told everything looks normal.

These women come seeking holistic methods to support their quest not only for period relief or positive pregnancy test but for overall health and wellness. De’Nicea creates holistic strategy plans designed for her to have more regular, less painful periods and increased fertility.

Having learned from missing work and school due to painful periods herself, De’Nicea now guides women to nourish their mind, body, and spirit daily with nutrition, herbal therapy, and lifestyle changes based on her own period type just as she did.  The complications with painful periods, fibroids, PCOS, endometriosis, amenorrhea, and infertility become a thing of the past.

Through her endeavors, De’Nicea is providing other options to help women preserve their uterus and optimize fertility holistically.

De’Nicea Hilton is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and NCCAOM Board Certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine certified in Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) and serves women online as well as in her Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine practice in Temple Terrace, FL.

A Budget that Works for You

A Budget that Works for You

Whether it is for your business or your personal life you should always follow a budget.  Even if you make significant amounts of money you should still have a budget.  But before you begin making a budget you need to have a set of goals.

Do you want to be debt free, live on one income, or save for retirement? Make this into your personal or family financial mission statement. Write it down or type it up nicely and then have it laminated and display it in a prominent place where you can see it often. Many times we just need a reminder to ourselves for why we are doing a particular thing, and that can be just enough incentive when things get tough.

Set small range goals so you can see progress. It can be very difficult to keep up the discipline necessary to stay on budget if you can’t see any measurable progress. Develop some short-term goals that you can celebrate meeting. If your goal has been to reduce your grocery spending by $100 per month, then your weekly goal would be to cut grocery costs by $25. Likewise, if your goal is to pay off debt, make a chart to show how much you’ve paid off. Reward charts just aren’t for children! Use a type of chart where you can color in a bar to show your progress, and then color it in every time you make a payment so you can see the progress you are making. Put it up on your refrigerator or bathroom mirror as a reminder that your hard work is paying off!

Next, Identify your weak spots and develop a plan to battle them. In sticking to your budget, you need a clear idea of where you may be tempted to break the budget. If you are prone to impulse spending, then you must remove that temptation from yourself. If you go window shopping, leave your credit cards at home! Especially in the early days of sticking to your budget, it is important to re-train yourself to curb spending.

A good way to prevent yourself from digging yourself further and further into debt is to form a personal budget that can work for you. Many people spend their hard-earned money frivolously without having many regards to how much money they will have left before their next paycheck comes. They will often find themselves having no money left and ending up having to borrow from a lender just to pay essential bills or provide for their family. The problem with this type of spending is that you tend to incur debts that will begin to cause added problems with your finances that you become unable to pay off your debts when needed.

 

 

A Little Money Woo-Woo

This blog is partially by request and it is something I really believe in and rarely talk about.  

Today I am going to show you how to make a Crystal Grid for money manifesting!  For some, this may be a little too “woo-woo” but I suggest you have an open mind and give it a try.

Let’s start with the basics of crystals and their uses as I recognize that many of my readers may be unfamiliar with their uses.  Crystals do more than look pretty in a bowl!.  Each type of crystal has unique characteristics and uses.   A few examples of common crystals and their uses:

Jade – restores emotional balance, disperses negative thoughts, cleanses, energizes.

Citrine – cleansing, encourages mental clarity and optimism, heals negativity.

Rose Quartz – replaces negative energy with loving vibrations, reduces tension, aids in forgiveness.

Amethyst – protects, soothes the mind, healing and calming, focus and mental stability, strengthens memory, increases motivation,

Agate – improves self-esteem, soothes and calms, gives strength and courage, promotes love, helps with speaking the truth.  

This is just a very small sample as an example and each of these crystals also has health benefits to them too and a long list of how you can use them.  My go-to simple book I reference is:

Crystal Energy: 150 Ways to Bring Success, Love, Health, and Harmony Into Your Life

So, what is a Crystal Grid?  On a physical level, it is an arrangement of crystals in a certain grid format.  On an energetic level when crystals are arranged properly on a well-designed grid, the energies of the crystals are magnified and reinforced.

I am no sports fan but it makes a good analogy.  Consider a team of people,  all with different roles (center, guards, defense, etc).  Now put them on a field/court with no formation and what happens?  Probably a lot of confusion. Now take that concept and put them in a formation and give them an intention of working together for a common goal.  Magic happens….in sports and on a grid!

There are many types of grid formations all based on Sacred Geometry.  (This could be an entire blog in itself). For this grid, we will be using the Seed of LIfe design which has a sixfold symmetry.  The number six (two threes) is a number of harmony, balance, sincerity, and truth.  These formations have the ability to promote harmony and balance and more importantly it gives us the energy to complete a task successfully.  

Each grid has a series of stones, The crystals we will be using for this are:

Amethyst to bring clear sight energies, prehnite for independence, intelligence and receptiveness; and green aventurine for prosperity and good fortune.

Here is a video on how to assemble the grid and how to use it.

There are many types of crystal grids you can make and I am sure this will not be the last one I posts about!  Enjoy and feel free to share any photos of the one you make in the Freedom Lounge Facebook Group.

Love & Abundance
