  • "61 Days for Teresa" starts August 26th!

    Teresa's birthday was August 26th. I'm going to do a personal challenge every year, starting on her birthday, for 61 days, the number of years she was on this Earth. It will end October 25th.

    61 days of encouragement, gratefulness, good posture, and whatever workout schedule is best for you. (It is not 61 days of workouts without rest.)

    Teresa has influenced my holistic healing inside and out For this 61 Days Challenge I will focus on diet and attitude of grace and gratitude.
    As I always say, T-Tapp is God-Given and God Guided. I am honored to have the opportunity to share what's been gifted to me. There is so much more woven within each of the T-Tapp exercise and special sequences within the workouts than just a means to lose inches and look good......So good luck....just do your personal best and you WILL continue to repair/rebuild from the inside out and your body will continue to look, feel and FUNCTION better too. - Teresa (April 12, 2018)

        Happy Birthday Teresa! I will always be grateful for the gifts you shared.

        I am using T-Tapp to manage pain again and I think I'm doing okay so far but there are days when frustration, anger and anxiety can creep in as I feel walled in again. For the 61 days challenge, I will listen to old podcasts and watch videos (online or dvds) and let Teresa remind me that healing is within reach.

        This week I will strive to be fully Wahls diet (level 1) compliant, I am at about 90%. I have been adapting our family meals little by little since last year. It is not my goal to have my family at 100%, but, I prefer for them to consume plenty of vegetables, lower dependence on dairy and sugar for comfort and be almost gluten-free.

        Update: Considering that my back is complaining and I am looking for comfort, I reached for healthy food and teas often. I end up only ate some baked sweets last night. Listening to her encouraging voice in podcasts helps, too. I love Trisch post about consistency, as a slow to improve I find it very motivating.

          Happy Birthday Teresa! Today, I wrote a FB messenger message to Teresa for her birthday. I relayed that I saw a rare metallic peacock blue dragonfly landed 3 inches in front of my right foot on a trail a few weeks ago (after hearing about a dragonfly story at the retreat), and I told Teresa about it. As soon as I posted that, I have this urge to look up blue green dragonfly and wanted to know if that was dragonfly, as it did not look like the ones most people posted (and I hardly ever seen dragonfly anyway).

          It turned out, the mysterious and mesmerizing blue creature I saw was a damselfly. Interesting and a special remarkable name... It is a smaller than a dragonfly and when it is perched and not at flight, the wings are closed next to the body instead of having the wings spread. I was wondering why it was a one lined creature the other day.

          I just randomly look up the symbols of dragonfly:"In almost every part of the world, the Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization.

          The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life. The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life. The Dragonfly moves with elegance and grace. The Dragonfly is iridescent both on its wings and body. Iridescence shows itself in different colors depending on the angle and how the light falls on it. The magical property of iridescence is also associated with the discovery of one’s own abilities by unmasking the real self and removing the doubts one casts on his/her own sense of identity.

          The Dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life. This symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living in the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t, and to make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis. The eyes of the Dragonfly symbolize the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. Dragonfly’s can be a symbol of self that comes with maturity. They can symbolize going past self-created illusions that limit our growth and ability to change.

          The Dragonfly has been a symbol of happiness, new beginnings and change for many centuries. The Dragonfly means hope, change, and love."

            There is another... https://www.hep6.com/dragonfly-damse...-power-animal/
            Dragonfly Symbolism Facts & Meaning: A Totem, Spirit & Power Animal

            I
            Dragonfly Symbolism & Meaning

            The dragonfly — or its counterpart, the damselfly — is the helicopter of the insect world. It’s hard to see it (especially when it’s flying at 45 mph) but the dragonfly can navigate in all directions. It can even fly backwards, and through rough winds. It is one of the most powerful navigators among the flying insects.

            This is why the dragonfly and damselfly has become a symbol of direction and purpose even through rough times. In much the same way that the dragonfly goes on even when we can’t see it, it reminds us to go on with our purpose even when we are not noticed by others around us.

            II
            Dragonfly Spirit Animal

            As a spirit animal, the dragonfly is a potent spirit guide. Its ability to weave between almost any obstacle makes it a great messenger from the magical plane, bringing with it an invitation to probe and test and discover things that are invisible to the eye. The dragonfly’s gilded wings is a symbol of its connection to the spirit world, something to allure us and make us curious as to what lies beyond.

            III
            Dragonfly Power Animal

            If your mind needs a little workout, then the dragonfly is your best bet. It is the perfect power animal to call on when you need to be mentally agile, especially when you need to get past obstacles that are clouding your mind. You might need to take the long route, to zigzag your way through, but what’s important is that you stay in motion.

            Being a symbol of curiosity, call on the dragonfly as well if you need to get out of your mental box. Sometimes you may encounter experiences or problems that require you to remove yourself from your current frame of mind, to take a different vantage point. The dragonfly lets you view everything from all angles, so you can decide on the best approach.

            IV
            Dragonfly Totem Animal

            People born under the totem of the dragonfly are naturally inquisitive, flitting through different mental subjects with ease. This makes them good students and problem solvers.

            These people are also very adaptable, capable of changing course in the middle of anything. They can quickly orient themselves to new situations, giving them an advantage when the playing field of life suddenly shifts.

            V
            Dragonfly Native American Symbolism

            The Native Americans have also noticed the dragonfly’s magnificent flying abilities, and attributed it to the nature of change. To them, the way the dragonfly’s path constantly shifts is pretty much like how life itself tends to shift. This tendency to be in constant motion has also made the dragonfly a perfect partner for the elemental energies of air and water.

            The magical potential of the dragonfly has been noticed by the Mayans, who believe that these insects house the benevolent souls of their ancestors. Because of this, the dragonfly has gained a connection to the goddess of creativity and rebirth, Ix Chel.

            VI
            Dragonfly Celtic Symbolism

            We often see fairies with dragonfly-like wings, and this is something that came directly from Celtic tradition. According to the wisdom of the Celts, the dragonflies come straight from the world of the fairies. They actually serve as steeds for these miniature magic users, and when used in such a capacity can go from one place to another near instantaneously.

            Celtic tradition also plays with the dragonfly’s beauty, saying that it actually is a fairy that can only be appreciated as such if we look closely (and from the right vantage point).

            Finally, the dragonfly is also connected to the magnificent creatures from which they got their names — the mighty Dragons. According to tradition, a person can be connected to a Dragon via the dragonfly. The dragonfly gives the person “true sight” which allows them to see the mighty guardians of sacred places.

            VII
            Dragonfly Far Eastern Symbolism

            To those in Japan, it has been told that the first Emperor were so taken by the dragonfly’s grace and beauty that he designated an island especially for them. The Japanese consider the dragonfly as a symbol of strength and courage, which is the main reason these insects appear frequently in banners, armors, and other articles of war.

            VIII
            Dragonfly in Dreams

            When you dream of a dragonfly, it means that change is coming for you. This change can come in so many forms, from the mundane to the tragic. You may have something new come into your life, or you may have something taken away. Either way, the dragonfly tells you to weather it out and adapt quickly.

            IX
            Dragonfly Encounters / Dragonfly Omens

            When a dragonfly flits around you, it may be sending you a challenge. You may currently be caught up in the present, so much that you do not allow yourself any room for change and improvement. The dragonfly is challenging you to break out and treat yourself to some new experiences. It’s challenging you to broaden your horizons in such a way you can see what your current life really has to offer.

            X
            Dragonfly Mythology and Folklore

            It’s also the Native Americans who have incorporated dragonflies into their myths and legends. Considered sacred, it had been taboo in the Pueblos to kill a dragonfly. The American Indians have stories of the trickster coyote trying to mimic the dragonfly, a reminder that someone unworthy cannot imitate someone pure and get away with it. The Zuni found the dragonfly significant enough to merit their own creation story.

            Dragonflies (and damselflies) are pretty interesting, if we can only stop to look at them in detail. But sometimes that’s hard, and we have to adapt by giving chase — one of the many lessons the dragonfly wants us to learn.

              Hi everyone. So sorry I haven't been around. We went camping for 6 nights and now I'm under a lot of pressure to get many things done this week.

              I'm focusing on staying positive, being thankful, and focusing on long-term health in ways that I enjoy.

              I went on many beautiful hikes in the Cabinet Mountains and thought of how Teresa would have loved it. She loved being out in nature.
