Live fruitfully & Flourish with the right foods, fitness & forgiveness

Live Fruitfully was created in part to promote a healthy diet plus smart, safe fitness training to help people achieve their ideal body composition, gain and maintain strength and mobility, age well, and avoid dependance on costly prescription drugs and invasive surgeries. 

After spending the bulk of my own life trying to overcome various physical and emotional issues, and maintain strength and mobility as I age, I have come to realize just how much our mind, emotions, and many other forms of 'food' which we regularly 'consume' are greatly influencing our ability to experience true and lasting health, vitality, contentment, and inner peace.

It occurred to me that certain therapists focus on helping us better manage stress and emotions, while health coaches focus on diet and exercise.  Meanwhile the doctors give us drugs to placate symptoms. It's all compartmentalized, reductionistic approaches. Emotions, stress, and health are all intertwined, but too few are connecting the dots.

More recently, I discovered just how much the forgiveness process can also liberate us from negative emotions, like anger and resentment.

As a result of forgiving my parents ~ especially my mother which I have always believed did her best given her own upbringing ~ I felt like a different person. I actually felt a huge weight lift off of me ~ including all my emotions which was like a miracle.  

All my yearning, disappointments, regrets, remorse, struggle, striving, and even a deep inexplicable sadness just evaporated!

I had identified as an emotional, highly sensitive person (HSP) my entire life. I thought the emotions were normal and natural!

Not one therapy nor therapist in all my years of trying to resolve my physical symptoms and emotional issues helped me to transform so instantaneously and effortlessly! 

The most effective tools I had learned to date was through my training to become a certified  Holistic CORE Counselor.  I outline several of these tools in The Strong Spirit 10-Step Plan.

It was an amazing and miraculous 'supernatural healing' and it really opened my eyes to the bigger picture.

In fact, suddenly I could see things very clearly.  And, the path before me illuminated.

What it takes to live fruitfully

As I see it, the three main components to living a healthy, fruitful life include:

  • Having good physical health
  • Overcoming anger and negative emotions through forgiveness
  • A present-moment-focus daily practice (to live by our DOS, rather than our inferior SOS which triggers us into stress, anxiety, and anger by taking us out of the moment

What, then, constitutes a fruitful life?

The word fruitful conjures images of a healthy, productive, high-yielding, bountiful fruit tree.

According to the, synonyms for fruitful include:

  • effective
  • profitable
  • rewarding
  • successful
  • useful
  • worthwhile
  • blossoming
  • fertile
  • flourishing
  • gainful
  • plenteous 
  • prolific

In the Old Testament, God told Abraham to "Be fruitful and multiply." Meaning be useful, effective, gainful, plenteous, prolific and fertile to grow and blossom humanity.

Contrast that to not being fruitful, as described by the antonyms to fruitful, below.

Antonyms (opposites) of fruitful include

  • disadvantageous
  • unfavorable
  • unhelpful
  • unprofitable
  • useless
  • worthless
  • barren
  • impotent
  • sterile
  • unproductive

When we eat and live right, as described above, we blossom, flourish, and are rewarded in ways, beyond what we could imagine.

By contrast, if we succumb to bad habits, we inevitabl become impotent, sterile, useless, unproductive, barren, unhelpful, and disadvantageous to the rest of the family, and humanity.  

So, to live fruitfully requires eating right and living right.

Once we have a better understanding of what it takes to live fruitfully ~ how to eat and live in accordance with the divine order ~ we can rectify what may be in discord to our  experiencing a flourishing, rewarding, useful, successful, fruitful life!

Whether you are interested in improving your physical health, or overcoming stress, habitual worry, and other toxic emotions ~ what I refer to as the 'hidden killers' in  The Strong Spirit 10-Step Plan ~ we have information, resources, and services that may help! 

Components of Living Fruitfully


As I discuss in my article outlining the various components of physical health, having good health is more than an absence of disease.

To optimize our genetic potential, and live a fruitful, high vitality life requires eating the right, nutrient-dense basic staple foods, and avoiding foods known to disrupt hormones and diminish health, along with physical conditioning, and appropriate lifestyle habits.

Remaining strong and flexible as you age will keep you young, and help you remain mobile and productive throughout your entire life span. That's a recipe for fruitful living!


Mental clarity, and peace of mind comes from learning to observe rather than participate in the endless chatter and imagination of the mind. 

The ego will fill us with all manner of thoughts about what we should or should not do, how great or how horrible we are, and on and on. It fills us with doubt, and puffs us up with pride. 

The ego can destroy us. Especially since we identify with our thoughts, and our various wounded parts ~ as if they are who we are. The ego projects worse case scenarios, analyzes, identifies, and judges ~ none of which will contribute to living a fruitful life.  It will lead to worry, self-doubt, anxiety, and stress though!

There is a way to overcome! It requires a present-moment focus daily practice.  And, it's a key step to living fruitfully!


We obtain peace of mind through overcoming our negative emotions. One of the best methods of overcoming stress, anxiety, worry, anger, resentment, and self-doubt is through the process of forgiveness.

Negative emotions keep you stuck in the past, or worried about the future, and prevent you from being able to remain present, and respond to events or 'triggers' calmly, with logic and reason, rather than reacting from a charged emotional state.


  • Vibrant energy
  • Resourcefulness 
  • Responsiveness 
  • Emotional freedom 
  • Inner peace 
  • Willingness 
  • Daily practice of being present-moment focused to overcome being sabotaged by emotions ~ stress, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, blaming, victimhood, dependency on others, addictions++ ~ and the endless chatter of the ego, or what I call SOS ~ Satan's Operating System in my upcoming book, The Golden Compass!

When we live fruitfully, we are productive, effective, useful and prolific. Our life blossoms. We flourish. We enjoy success ~ the fruits of our labor.  

And we experience vitality, satisfaction, and lasting peace.

Are you living a fruitful life?

Hallmark traits of living a fruitful life:

  • Self-confidence
  • Personal satisfaction
  • Thriving health, free of the degenerative effects of stress & anxiety
  • Mental clarity with a balance of reason, logic, and internal/divine 'knowing'
  • Crystal clear discernment of 'right' versus 'wrong' actions and behaviors
  • Self-reliance, resilience, resourcefulness, and courage
  • Unshakeable inner peace, free of anger, resentments, stress, and anxiety
  • Trust and faith in the divine unfolding plan for your life

Can you imagine experiencing all of the above?

Would you believe me when I say that it is our birthright to live fruitfully, and experience all of the above, and more?

And, with relative ease?

Many won't, which is unfortunate. Many are swayed more by what I call the shiny dangly things of life. 

They may never know the ease and grace that comes when we align our lives appropriately, and allow our life to unfold, rather than will our personal desires into reality.

Best of all, no Laws of Manifestation or Attraction, vision boards, or constantly reciting affirmations needed!

I believe that a truly fruitful life is one that is illuminated from within.

Your Creator wants you to live in Divine Alignment, and live a fruitful life ~ far more fruitful than we could manage when operating as if we are in control, when we are not. In fact, you have no idea what great things may be in store for you! No Laws of Attraction or Manifestation, vision boards, or daily recitation of affirmations needed!

No matter how much I strived to improve my physical health, or overcome my own emotions and anxieties, or how much I attempted to make things work in my life, my real healing came about once I forgave, and began a daily present-moment focused practice to disbelieve my thoughts.

I've been in 'alternative' health care half my life. Every single client has some type of challenges and issues. Yes, challenges are part of life. The problem is that we judge them, and react emotionally rather than respond rationally.

What could be more fruitful then to go through such a simple process, and receive such grace and healing in return?

who am i???

My name is Tracy, and I am an author, Health Coach, Certified Holistic CORE Counselor & Clinical Hypnotherapist.

I've spent years experimenting with many 'diets,' therapies and methods to overcome physical health issues, and emotional obstacles that kept me stuck. 

No matter what I tried, nothing seemed to last ~ until the stars finally aligned.

Three important things came together for me that helped me overcome my lifetime of emotions, stress & anxiety, and finally live a more fruitful life.

  1. I began to implement the Holistic CORE Counseling process ~ for myself and my clients
  2. I had a supernatural 'Divine Awakening' experience
  3. I began to listen to Jesse Lee Peterson, and took his advice to go and forgive my mother (which I (like most) did not fully realize that I needed to!)

I now see how critical it is to help others overcome their emotions and stop believing their thoughts (or egos) to return to their natural state of being. Stress, anxiety, anger, and resentments are literally killing us ~ individually and collectively.

I have great admiration for the work that Peterson is doing to help men live more productive, fruitful lives ~ as men. I hope to make my own contribution helping women to overcome the toxic emotions which are like a dark spirit that derails our lives.  

To overcome our major societal ills, we all need to return to our divine right order. Our children, families, communities, and nations will all better flourish when we do.

The wrong foods, and/or lifestyles in discord to our genuine needs, desires, and true nature leads to poor mental and physical health, and increased stress, disharmony, disquietude, lack of peace and lack of flow.

Negative, lower vibrational 'food' in the form of dark, violent images, movies, music and subliminal symbols and messages are everywhere.  If we are not careful and discerning, too much of these 'foods' will scramble our nervous system and thoughts, and throw us off center. They implant into our psyche like a virus of the mind, short circuiting our own operating system, and inner divine, Golden Compass.

Instead of organically trusting and following our natural and divine desires, our wires are crossed, and we chase the shiny dangly 'things' of life ~  activities and relationships that divert our focus, diffuse our power, and/or are superficial, toxic, empty, or counter to our true nature. 

"May I have the courage today to live the life that I would love.  To postpone my dream no longer.  But do at least what I came here for and waste my heart on fear no more.

~John O'Donohue, author
