How To Be More Grateful | The Legend of the Dung Beetle

Dr. Marisol ND. Queen of the Thrones® yoga practice for a healthy life

From the outside looking in, especially in this day and age of social media, you look at people’s lives and get a bit of ‘comparitis’. Yup, this is a legit condition, in my mind of course. Often you begin to feel ungrateful and unhappy in your own life. 

Things aren’t always as they appear. We often only show the good things in our lives, trying to avoid the trials and tribulations that are just part of the natural flow of living and breathing on Mother Earth. Reality is we have sooo sooooo much to be grateful for. You may think others have more, but it’s not about that. Being grateful is about cultivating your mindset and your relationship to the divine. Everything serves a purpose. The good, and the bad, light time or lessons. It’s time to get grateful in your daily grind. It’s the only way to ground so you can glow and grow.

Why is Gratefulness Important?

Gratefulness gives you stability like a 600 lb elephant, a 10 000 year old tree in the forest. Like the humpback whale waxing, weighing and waving through the ocean.

Sh*t happens here, happens there, happens everywhere. And thank God!

Because you know what happens if you don’t sh*t?!

Things get heavy, slow, toxic. Disorder reigns. 

No one said this was going to be a perfect life! Part of being human is picking up and dealing with your sh*t. Always keep your proverbial pooper scooper handy! You, like your dog, have to clean up your shit too.

Nature’s Natural Cycles

It’s natural! Animals do it. Nature decays and breaks down and turns it into soil. You intake food, utilize what you need and excrete the rest. 

Starting with the sh*t and natural breakdown and decay, on the other side comes a forest of blossoms blooming, leaves-a-rustling, the smell of pine, flowers and mold and sometimes excrement left by the animals! Part of our natural cycle. 

Remember, watch where you step!!

It’s simply the natural balance, yin and yang, life and death. 

Things that help us heal typically follow this balance, dark and light, fast and slow.

Opposites are required. It’s the ebb and flow of the ocean (salt and water). The night and day, darkness by the moon and lightness sunshine brilliant by the sun (exercise and sleep). The castor oil bean can kill you, the oil will heal you (food and pharmacy).

Without grind, there is no grace. 

Live & Learn

Accept it and move on. Move forward, look where you are going, not where you’ve been. Except to make sure you don’t repeat the same thing twice. As in step on the same piece of turd. 

How does that saying go?

Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on you…

Learn to mold your mind, to think in the right way. Learn how to best deal with the obstacles and challenges that are in front of you. Part of molding your mind is adopting a practice of gratefulness. 

The Practice of Gratefulness 

It is said that gratefulness is the connection to the natural creator. The creator of light and darkness, empty and soul-full. 

To keep your soul fulfilled, you must live in gratefulness. This is very difficult when the going gets tough. This is when you must toughen up and get going. Keeping your mind constantly in the same thought process, always grateful for both the good and the bad in this life. 

So what is the easiest way to start a grateful practice? Because I know you never did the journal you were recommended to do, or the 3 things before you retire to bed at night.

How to Start a Gratitude Practice

To create a habit, simply connect it to something you do daily. Smokers who drink coffee find it very hard to quit because they are reminded to have a cigarette every time they drink a coffee. 

It’s the same as why I like to link the castor oil pack to sleep. Because it’s the best time for it and it I have patients who track their sleep through monitors and have had incredible improvement! 

Eating is something that we typically do every day. So let’s link gratitude to that habit.

The Symbolism of the Dung Beetle

Do you remember the scene in the new Lion King movie when Simba’s hair flies through the wind, is eaten and turned into excrement, only to be rolled by the dung beetle back to Pride Rock? Then Rafiki finds it and exclaims that Simba, their king, is still alive!!!  

Dung Beetle rolling dung

According to Egyptian legend, what the sacred scarab does is create the womb for the spark of life. Seeds implanted into their rolled dung are in the optimal environment to grow and then glow. Legend says the lotus flower (a symbol of rebirth and recreation of life) lives for this opportunity. 

It is said that the sacred scarab is also the living manifestation of the Egyptian Sun God Ra, who rolls the sun into the sky everyday. This is why it such a popular hieroglyphic on Egyptian murals. 

Beautiful pink lotus flower

And well, poo… sh*t… dung… It’s kind of my thing. 

The dung beetle bead of our Grateful Dung™ Bracelet is made of black obsidian from the Austrian Swarovski crystal maker. This stone is supportive of the 1st chakra; the root chakra, which is essential for us to feel grounded, safe and secure. It also helps us to activate our creativity.

I have a new mantra at yoga. It used to be, “in flow, let go”. Now it is, “in flow grace, let go of the great creativity in side of my soul”.

I inhale and exhale. 

Back to the bracelet, it’s also composed of Tiger’s eyes beads that support the 3rd chakra; our solar plexus chakra. It is the center of your heart and soul connection, where you feel the butterflies in your belly. You’ve got those ‘gut feelings’ baby!

For flow in the digestive tract, the 1st and 3rd chakra must be optimized. They are typically the weakest link along with the 5th chakra (the voice/thyroid) of the human body. 

But first we must start with the foundation. So hold onto the dung beetle bead before you eat. Say three things you are grateful for. 

Placing your mind in a grateful state prevents any negative thought processes like anger. Do this before every meal. The more you practice, the easier it will be for your body to grow into it. It will become natural!

The Grateful Dung™ Bracelet is your reminder. You can get it for free when you sign up for my free online course challenge, The Gratitude Experiment.

Easy, simple! Honor your food, love the life you live, and beyond everything – be grateful in your daily grind. Remember it is natural for sh*t to hit the fan. What you do with it dictates the direction of your destination and how you fall into your fate.

How to Look & Feel Good NATURALLY

Dr. Marisol ND. Queen of the Thrones® trains you on how to look and feel good naturally

“It’s not what’s on the outside that counts.  It’s what’s on the inside that matters.”

How often have you heard this in your life?  It’s one of the most common sayings, but why don’t you believe it?  Why do you let your wrinkles, thigh dimples, or muffin top take control of your mind?  We let these trivial things take over how we live our lives, adding a considerable amount of stress and time to our daily routines. 

We try so hard to be like what we see in the movies, on TV, in magazines or on social media.  Now more than ever, we are told we need to look a certain way and this just makes us hyper-focus on what we can do to change our outer appearance.

Body Confidence

Something I’m so grateful for these days is the Body Confidence or Body Positivity Movement.  It may have started with Dove and the campaign for real beauty in the early 2000s, but now it is an outright movement, one that I’m so proud of and that I want to push forward!

Dr. Marisol N.D. Medical Mystic and Queen of the Thrones®

 Why do I want to push it forward?  Because in clinical practice I’ve seen people that are dealing with devastating diseases, some that are terminal, yet they are still hyper-focused on their weight or their physical imperfections!  How can this be?

Superficial Beauty Does Not Equal Happiness

 The reality is this is the norm and not the exception.  I remember my mother feeling the same way.  My sister, my friends, me too.  Over time, I’ve come to realize that all this pressure builds up an internal stressor so huge in our bodies, like a kettle about to boil over, and it only causes harm to our body, mind, and soul. 

The thing is, no one is ever happier once they achieve their superficial ‘goals’, because you just program yourself to want more of that ‘perfection’, and we experience symptoms of internal unrest, stress, and need for a change.

At the end of the day, when you really analyze your values and what you want in this life, how you look in your body is irrelevant.  It is simply the vessel for your spirit, soul, consciousness… whatever you want to call it.  Many patients who are dying finally understand this, but it’s too late. 

The damage has been done, the guilt, the stress, the internal unrest, not only makes us feel anxious but it also makes us sick.  Our bodies will keep on bringing up signs and symptoms, trying to give you a wake-up call.  Until you do, it’ll just keep on trying to remind you. 

Messages From Your Body

Symptoms are like little cries for help or love letters from your body.  They show up when your body or mind is in a state of unrest and imbalance, in hopes of snapping you out of these negative habits.

 The following are some common signs that your insides are struggling:

Feel happy in your own skin
  • Anxiety
  • Acne
  • Central weight gain 
  • Headaches
  • Excessive cellulite
  • Dark circles under your eyes
  • Blotchy complexion
  • Stronger appearance of stretch marks
  • Aging faster
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • IBS 

And so many more.

What’s super interesting to me is that the way you look on the outside and the things that you are trying to fight, really are impacted by what you think and feel on the inside.

So change your mind and your thoughts, and do things differently moving forward.  It’s easier than you think, it just takes repetition and practice.

How to Become More Comfortable in Your Skin

So here’s what I propose to help mold your mindset into a positive, nurturing environment for your body, mind, and soul.

1. Stimulus in Your Surroundings

Start surrounding yourself with more of what you want.  Body confidence.  I love Instagram for this because visual images are so powerful.  Follow influencing leaders who make you feel good in your own skin.  A few of my favorite people to follow are @thebirdspapaya, @yovana, @kenziebrenna, @iamtulin and @mikzazon, check them out – their content is incredibly real, authentic, and no bullsh*t about learning to love your beautiful body. 

The more you listen to their stories and how they work every day to love themselves wholly from the inside out will change the way you think about yourself.

Mirror work helps your self-esteem

2. Do Mirror Work

 This was popularized by the great Louise Hay.  You simply look in the mirror and tell yourself you love yourself.  You do this EVERY day, in EVERY single mirror you pass by. 

The hardest part about this is the first little while because for so many years you have been looking in the mirror and saying something negative about yourself, nit-picking every little thing that you want to change.  So trust me on this one, it will take practice.  Saying it out loud to yourself will be difficult at first but it is so effective and YOU are SO worth it.

 My first time, I bawled my eyes out as I started to say it and I couldn’t get it out.  Imagine, I couldn’t tell myself that I loved myself.  Gosh, this brings up tears and tingles all over my body.  But I promise you, if you commit to it, it will get better.

If this is too hard for you, the other option is to stick little notes everywhere that say ‘I love you’.  In the glove compartment or visor in your car, in your office drawers, or in your closet when you get dressed in the morning.

3. Stress-Savvy Balance

 We have to get the stress down in our system so that we keep moving in a forward motion (instead of bouncing back into your old way of being).  Stress and anxiety will whip you back into old habits so quick you won’t even know what happened.

 Whatever you do to build a strong stress response, make sure it is practiced regularly.  Some people pray, do yoga, meditate… these are all excellent practices to get into.  For me, my favorite is the Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack™ because it stimulates feel-good hormones like oxytocin (just like when you’re given a big hug) plus it helps me sleep well, poop well, and reduces bloating and anxiety.  It’s the foundational practice for the health of my mind, body, and soul, and it’s one of the first things that I recommend to all of my patients too.

The Power in Your Thoughts and Words

Stay present; focus on the here and now as much as possible.  Being mindful will work wonders on cultivating a positive mental and physical state.  Remember most of all, this life is a JOURNEY of self-discovery, not a destination.

It takes practice, time, love and gratitude to build confidence in yourself and truly realize that when you love yourself, others will love you too and it doesn’t matter how your outer appearance looks.

Queen of the Thrones practicing yoga

Make it your mantra, and every time someone notices how great you look or asks you what you’re doing and why, always reply with conviction in your words.

Don’t say the typical, “I’ve got more work to do”, or “I’m on a diet”, etc…  Say this instead, “Thanks, I do look good because I work hard to feel good on the inside.”  Because there is power in your words and every word you say, your mind hears, and these words become engraved into commands.  Looking good is just a side benefit to feeling good on the inside and thinking good thoughts about yourself!

The Connection Between Addiction and Anxiety

Overcome anxiety with Queen of The Thrones set of practices and products

I’ve seen a lot in the media lately about Demi Moore, as she recently released her memoir, Inside Out, where she candidly shares her struggles with addiction, failed marriages, and sexual assault in her teen years.  I’ve always admired Demi for her boldness and authenticity.

I vividly remember her famous Vanity Fair cover in 1991 where she posed naked while seven months pregnant (see my rendition below, pushing out with a bloat-baby instead!).  Her nudity sparked controversy, but I believe that her courage in allowing this iconic and beautiful photo to run on the cover made changes in the way society viewed a pregnant woman’s body. 

Dr. Marisol ND., Queen of the Thrones® teaches how to manage anxiety with Castor Oil Packs.

She is making waves again, as she courageously writes about some very important issues in her memoir, specifically substance abuse and addiction.  When people think of the word addiction, they often think of drugs and alcohol, but this isn’t always the case.  We can become addicted to anything (gambling, sex, food, etc.) and no matter what the addiction is, it can be just as dangerous and destructive.  

I became inspired to share a bit about my own story and patterns that I’ve seen in clinical practice with addiction.  It’s something I believe we all struggle with at one point or another in our lives whether we realize it or not, and it’s important that we talk about it, understand it and see the gifts in it, in order to heal.

My Personal Struggle with Addiction

I have an addictive personality, and I know I’m not alone.  Throughout my life I’ve struggled with strong addictions to sugar, coffee and cigarettes.  They owned me, ruled my every thought, commanded my life.  For me, it wasn’t only being addicted to something that was the problem, but the substances themselves were actually part and parcel of the problem.  

Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants of the nervous system and I’m naturally an easily excitable person with a predisposition to anxiety.  These substances served their purpose to make me feel “normal”, which for me at the time was being in an anxious state.  They also affected my digestion negatively.  They made me poop like a champ which felt like a godsend, coming from a history of having constipation.

But these loosey-goosey poopies were because my gut was being irritated by my addictions.

Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants of the nervous system

Starting my day off with coffee and a cigarette was the worst thing I could be doing.  Initially, they made me feel great and alert (like the energizer bunny) but would amp up my anxiety to the point I was running away like Piglet from Winnie the Pooh.  It became so bad I was having insomnia and severe panic attacks where I thought I was literally dying. 

One time, I remember curling up in a little ball on the floor, hyperventilating with my arms and hands all in spasms.  If you’ve ever experienced a panic attack, you know it can be life altering and you’d do anything to prevent it.

Beyond my addictions, there was a part of me that felt completely out of tune.  I was wrestling with my integrity as a person.  I was in school in my third year of naturopathic medicine, closet-smoking on my balcony.  I felt like such a hypocrite… This was not who I wanted to be.  I knew I needed a way out, but it felt impossible since I was self medicating to cope with all of my stress. 

It kept me from socializing and going out to events with friends because once I had a cigarette, I smelt like it and I didn’t want to be labeled a fraud.  The only issue is that you can run from others’ judgement, but it’s pretty hard to run from what you think of yourself.

I couldn’t keep running; there was nowhere to hide.

Understanding the Connection Between Addiction & Anxiety

Addiction and anxiety co-exist and co-create with each other.  I refer to them as two peas in the infinity loop pod.  Which came first?  Was it anxiety, then the addiction?  Or did the addiction bring on the anxiety?  Often times, we’re addicted to things that make us increasingly anxious, and those things that we are addicted to deplete our nutrient profile, so the anxiety gets worse.  It’s a vicious cycle.

Correlation between addiction and anxiety

What we do know is that they always go hand in hand, there is a psychopathology associated with anxiety and addictive disorders.  The remarkable thing is that both have the ability to evolve us into something greater than we are today.  There are gifts within these chains, if we choose to accept them.

What Does Anxiety Feel Like?

You have felt the sheer terror of anxiety, like I have (and most other people at some point in their lives).  The overwhelming sensation of pressure on your chest and your heart beating so fast it feels like it’s exploding out of your body.  It’s difficult to take a deep breath, and there’s a tingling, numbing sensation in your hands, mouth, chest…a pressure in the back of your neck…

Everyone tells you to take deep breaths, but you simply cannot.  You feel oxygen deficient, like the air around you is empty.

anxiety is one of the most common psychological disorders

If you have ever felt like you’re unable to control the sensations in your body, you know anxiety.  The ultimate perception of not being safe and feeling a total loss of control.  It can completely stop you in your tracks. 

A Visceral Reaction

Anxiety extends far beyond your mental state, as it can disrupt your digestion completely.  Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is often accompanied by anxiety (no surprise here). 

Do you find when you are anxious, you lose your appetite and simply can’t eat?  Or perhaps you have a tendency to overeat to calm the butterflies in your belly?  Some people experience loose stools while others have an inability to have a good bowel movement and let go. 

The sensation of anxiety, as with all things that are uncomfortable, comes bearing a gift.  It’s basically stress that’s been taken up a notch, with roots in future-thinking.  You feel that you’ve lost control over what will happen in your future, and gloom and doom is the predominant theme.  Those of us with a tendency towards anxiety, like myself, possess the gift of being incredibly intuitive.  We feel when things are not right around us, we feel when there is unrest.  We have this uncanny ability to feel what others cannot.  What we choose to do with these feelings is what will either elevate us… or crush us. 

What Is Addiction?

Dr. Marisol ND., Queen of the Thrones® explains the correlation between anxiety and addictions

Addiction is so hard to break for many of us because in its primordial form, its essence is that of self-care.  It is an instinct, one that is incredibly strong in some people because of genetic predisposition, exposure to addiction or trauma at a young age, or simply primordial impulse. 

Instinct is raw!  It is the evolutionary emotional commands from the limbic system situated in the hypothalamic pathway in the middle of our brains.

Addiction is often fed by feeling uncomfortable in your own skin and how you’re living. It’s a form of self-care that allows instant gratification.  You don’t feel good and you know that, so you search for the easiest and quickest fix.  This is very normal.  This is how we have evolved and survived through treacherous times, by listening to what we need.  We look for the path of least resistance and take the easiest way out.

The 3 Categories of Addiction

1. Substance Addiction

When we talk about addiction in general, a chemical or substance addiction like cigarettes, alcohol or drugs is often assumed.  The reality, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) is that addiction has three faces, substance addiction being the first.

2. Food Addiction

Beyond substances, the second category of addiction is food.  The search for high-calorie, low-nutrient foods with sugar, salt and fat is programmed into our brains.  It’s a primal evolutionary advantage – feed, so as not to famine.  In the modern day, we no longer have this need, but food engineers work hard to make their foods as addictive as possible. 

Have you ever heard yourself say, “I can’t open the package because I will eat it all”?  For example, think of chocolate.  It contains sugar, fat and psychoactive substances from the cocoa bean, a perfect recipe for addiction and wanting more.  Addiction to food is rampant and you are not alone – we’re in this one together. 

3. Behavioral Addiction

The final category is behavioral addiction.  This form includes exercise, internet-use, sex, work, gambling, and more.

Different kind of addictions chart

What is intriguing is that all of these faces of addiction could technically be considered under the umbrella of substance addiction, since the neurobiological effect and the neurotransmitter pathways stimulated within our bodies, are all the same.

The Addiction Anxiety Infinity Loop

According to Freimuth et al, tolerance is where the addict keeps on increasing the substance, food, or behaviour, to receive the desired effect that gives them their “high”.  Withdrawal is where, with the lack of their addiction, they start to desire it more and more.  They become obsessed with the thought of procuring it, they need their “fix”.  This brings on the feelings of restlessness, irritability, sleeplessness and anxiety.  

This is why anxiety and addiction are linked together in the infinity loop.  The addiction produces the anxiety, and the anxiety fuels the addiction.  My thoughts are that another unknown part of the affliction may actually be an addiction to the state of being anxious.  I know for me, that was my “natural” state in the past, as I grew up in a home with great anxiety.  I became conditioned to the addiction anxiety loop, it was my “normal”, I knew nothing else.

Intuition Within

As mentioned before, having a tendency toward anxiety actually holds a gift within, if we choose to see it this way.  When something isn’t right, we feel it in our gut, in our digestion.  This feeling is our intuition.

Intuition is important as it elevates us to our higher selves.  When we learn to listen, it guides us to a state of safety, balance and being in flow.  It guides us through our emotions and sensations, A.K.A. “gut feelings”.  It could be a nervous feeling that comes with a new decision.  It could be a strong confidence when we make a choice that “feels” right.  You intimately know when something feels right or wrong; you can feel it in your gut.  So do you listen?  Or do you suppress these sensations with stress, or by numbing your feelings?  Do you take quiet time to really listen to your intuition or do you simply keep on “doing” and not “being”? 

Your addictions are instinctual, whereas your anxiety is a call from your higher self, your INTUITION.  Your anxiety elevates and increases the less you listen to your higher self, which only serves to perpetuate the cycle of addiction.

 Channeling Your Intuition

The way towards channeling your intuition is through: 

Dr. Marisol ND., Queen of the Thrones® set of products and practices help you cope with anxiety

  • Quiet reflection
  • Meditative practices and gratitude practices, such as with the Queen of the Thrones® Grateful Dung™ Bracelet
  • Limiting the amount of anxiety-promoting substances, foods, and behaviours in your life
  • Using calming and connective essential oils such as those in Eau de Throne™
  • Getting restful, good quality sleep with regular nighttime rituals, like your Beauty Sleep Brow & Lash Kit™
  • Improving your digestion (the gut is where we feel it the most) this can be supported with Castor Oil Packs™

All of the products discussed above are included in the Queen of the Thrones® Queen Kit !

Over time, you become truly become in tune with your needs.  Intuition can be curated and cultivated from your anxiety.  It is truly a diamond in the rough! 

Your intuition shows you the best, brightest path, the yes and no; it moves you towards enlightenment.  Your instincts move you towards immediate safety or prevention from harm such as “I’m starving, there must be a famine!  I should eat everything in sight right now!” 

This differs from your intuition which says, “This is all I need right now; this will nourish my body and make me feel well”.

End the Epidemic 

In my practice, I see more constantly anxious people than any other health condition.  It’s an epidemic and one of the reasons why our digestive systems are so damaged.  Anxiety creates a major cascade of stress hormones via the adrenergic system, such as adrenaline in the short term and cortisol in the longterm.  These are constantly pumping through our veins, especially for those with digestive issues like IBS.

To this day, I need to mind my tendency to slip into a “normal” state of anxiety.  I have to work at it and be very disciplined with my quiet practices.  If anxiety is all you have ever known as your normal, you will seek to maintain that level of normalcy.  That’s just human nature because that is your comfortable spot.  But this just opens the door for addiction, whether your vice is sugar, alcohol, food, work or sex, or maybe all of them.  Not only will you get the ill effects of the substance, but also the ill effects of the anxiety that is superimposed over the addiction.

It is important to understand these connections and do everything in our power to change our environments and get in touch with our intuition, that we may live a fulfilled, joyous life, free of addiction and chronic anxiety.
