Crunchy Mama Halloween Prep

Just because I refuse to double-dose my kids with red dye #40 and Monsanto-Franken-fructose-filled “treats” on October 31, doesn’t mean I don’t want them to have fun. In fact, Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. Why?

Autism and Reiki: How to do Energy Healing at Home

20120525-192237.jpgWe healed our family from severe autism, seizure disorder, candida, food allergies and many other health imbalances with something more than just diet. In fact, Doug, who was a skeptic about the nutritional aspect of our healing at first — jumped right on board after he had a profound physical shift with energy work. Within five minutes of distance healing, his previously shattered shoulder bones physically moved back into place. That was 7 years ago. We now use energy work every day. And we keep finding new reasons for needing it and new ways to use it. Read more

Autism Recovery Journey: Healing Earth’s Autism

20120622-080302.jpg

Autism is on the Rise

Studies tell us that we are at epidemic rates of a mysterious, puzzling disorder called autism (autism spectrum disorder) among humans. But, ever since meeting my son again in this lifetime and experiencing his life with him, I have correlated his way of being with the wonders and the ills of nature, and in particular –our planet herself. In this Time of our Reality.

Because Mama Gaia (Earth) Has a Message

If Mama Earth were given an expert evaluation, I assure you that she’d come out with a label of ASD. And, not JUST because these labels make money for the system who keeps us sick. But, because all of Mama Earth’s symptoms add up to a toxic overload that expresses itself in the form of regressive development (bees becoming extinct, more animals being born with birth defects, loss of minerals in soil, loss of crops); inability to socialize appropriately for her age (Mama is at least 4 billion, and her cells (US) struggle to communicate); digestive and systemic organ malfunction (earth quakes, tornadoes, climate change).

Understanding the Gift of Change

Now, I’m not implying that these are all BAD things. They are Mama’s way of pushing out the toxins that she has been unknowingly injected with — (pesticides that inhibit her nervous system and so much more). Mama’s outward expression of war, planetary upheaval and confusion stems from her body’s need to push out toxins and renew herself. She is healing. She will survive with or without us. Her autism-like symptoms are her message. It allows us to know what she needs. We can either give it to her, or quite honestly — she can take it and sacrifice us. As her cells, we are quite adaptable to her toxicity. We can learn to live in an unhealthy environment. BUT, Mama knows best. She knows how it feels to be whole and she wants to get back to wholeness.

I’ve worked with hundreds of children with autism and have lived with my own boy for 7 years. I’ve seen the hand- flapping, toe-walking, tantrumming, head-banging, seizures, diarrhea, allergies and more. And, I see these symptoms as our bodies’ way of trying to cleanse, balance and get back to WHOLENESS.

My son was unable to break down proteins due to a lack of proper bacteria and enzymes in his digestive system. We discovered this because he was spinning. We observed when the spinning began, and correlated it with his indigestion of proteins. He spun to balance internal overload with output. He was relieving himself. To ease his pain, we removed protein except for in its predigested fermented form, and then healed his gut so that he could digest on his own. He NEVER had a spinning spell again. When needed, our son would spin, hand-flap, make buzzing noises — all to bring his inner and outer body into wholeness. As he healed, we joined him in these activities to help him feel recognized and help us understand what was going on and why. When it was possible, we would lead him out of repetitive activities.

It’s remarkable to me how we are designed in such a way that our bodies can bring us into balance– even if our conscious minds are unaware of what’s going on. But, in quantum physics, if we observe something…. that is to say, if we become aware of it– the results change. The results are now at least partially dependent on the observer.

So, imagine KNOWING that when your child is tantrumming or spinning, this is a needed step in his return to wholeness. What is bringing him out of wholeness? If someone cannot digest protein (for example), feeding them streak does not give them any protein. This food becomes toxic to them. It putrefies in his gut. So, in this case you’d be dealing with a complication of toxic overload from undigested food, allergic reaction to said food and protein deficiency.

This chain-link of reasoning behind autism symptoms can leave a parent feeling very confused and alone. 

The journey to healing speeds up once we embrace the gifts of this change. These symptoms are taking you somewhere. They are not meant to leave your children in pain. It’s quite a leap for some to trust their instincts and take their healing back to Earth, and slowly ALLOW nature’s power to do HER wonders. To hug the Earth is to experience one of the most healing vibrations that we know.

But, we are taught to jump into recovery, killing autism and all of the bad bugs that come along with it with chelation, factory-made supplements and the like. I didn’t have to go there. I simply embraced our mama. Supplements and modalities that do work are the ones that mimic nature– and I have experienced their usefulness for short-lived periods of time.

Why do you think Mother Nature would react in earth quakes and climate change?

Her condition is not a mistake. It is just as it needs to be in order for her to move on to her next phase of consciousness.

When I met my son, and learned that he had autism, I understood that he came here to be the way he is so that people can learn what he and the earth need to heal.

People with autism carry this message of higher consciousness. They are different thinkers. Some call them neuro-diverse. We are headed into a phase of consciousness where human caca like banking systems, governments and institutions are crashing and being re-born differently.

When the dust settles, what’s left will be a diverse group of people with far more intellectual, creative and manifestation power than ever before.

It’s not time to control or medicate and put these beautiful souls in a box labeled autism. It’s a time to listen to them and do everything we can to ALLOW their amazingness to come through.

We are Just as We Should Be

Science continues to prove a divine plan, and although we have some pretty extreme manifestation powers, we are not working at this alone.

Our kids with autism are just as they should be. They are fulfilling their purpose quite well because people are waking up all over the place. But, being as they should be and being sick are two different things. I see it as part of my own purpose to help people wake up to the fact that accepting autism has nothing to do with accepting illness. Once the key to the illness part is discovered, everyone can begin feeling better. And neuro-diversity is not illness.

If you’re a mama or a dad of an angel with autism, know that she/he is here to teach you too! So, as we join hands in gratitude for the blessings– we discover even more healing.

We are All Healing

Healing is what healing means to you. And, I’m not trying to sound like Forrest Gump. I’m only reminding you that only you can feel your purpose and your path. You know where you are supposed to be.

I see healing as change into a place that feels better. I see it as a letting go of what feels wrong and embracing what’s right. And I’m so grateful to be alive at a time when I can experience this with you.

These days there probably isn’t one of us who does not feel the residual energetic effects of our Mama Earth’s auto-immune disease. It’s real and we know it. But at the same time, we have the power to help one another transcend it.

We are not our labels.

As a matter of fact, we are perfect. We simply forgot that. If we remembered our perfection and the light that we came from, we would understand our power to heal.

Let go of all that ails you today (whatever you call it)! It’s your key into higher consciousness!

Please join us in giving of your heart’s vibration in honor of experiencing a mass shift in consciousness. Forget the problems and fill your day with light.

Raising Psychic Children

20120314-080909.jpg The other day, my son went up to a young woman and asked her about the baby in her tummy. One that she had yet to publicly reveal. At home on our couch, he went on to tell me that she’s having a girl with light brown hair. He does this often. A few months ago on the train he dragged me up to a woman who he had to speak to. He asked her about her son “Bern, ” the “chef” who lived in another state. The woman, taken aback, began talking about how much she missed her son, but that she was so proud of him for living his dream and having just officially completed culinary school.

Now, he’s channeling dietary advice to friends on Skype. He’ll text message things like “eat salmon and fish and chicken broth” during conversations. What’s significant about this for me is that I often get my “messages” in terms of food. I’ll just know what someone can eat to help them. Now he’s doing it alone and right on point with what I would advice. He’s also very serious about the way life was when he was on Mars. He can give details about the soil. The truth is that all children and humans are psychic. Our kids are way better at it than we are, and if you are reading this you absolutely have a psychic child. The advice given here can increase anyone’s psychic ability and enhance our physical health as well…. Our intuitive abilities are imprinted in our DNA. We were born to instinctively understand how to protect ourselves, grow and connect with nature. A very easy example of your psychic ability is to remember how it feels when you “know” to get away from another person or situation. The Fight or Flight response is something most of us can agree that we have. When we follow the instinct, or  natural survival response, we open channels for more psychic (vibrational information to come through).

We are sensitive to subtle energy because we are built from subtle energy. We take in loads of information all day long — media, facts, interactions with people, meals, you name it. And this information is filtered and will be stored correctly without much thought given to it. However, we have been conditioned to completely ignore the fact that each and every ounce of information we take in also has a vibratory frequency that is detected by our energy body, and deciphered through our pineal gland. “The seat of the soul” according to De Cartes. Our pineal glands are the functional, measurable, psychic part of us. This pineal gland, also known as our third eye, has been cherished throughout history in ancient cultures.

Artwork from Sumeria, to the Mayans and even Egyptian pyramids glorified this magickal gland. We call it “pineal” which derives from “pinecone” and that’s exactly how it looks in the center of our brains. In fact, this gland has all of the inner components of your seeing eyes and may very well be responsible for the visions you have while dreaming. It is filled with fluid, and the balance or imbalance of this fluid is used to detect brain tumors on brain scans. The Hindu Bindi is a decorative gem worn over the third eye, and we still see this all the time in our current society.

For those who celebrate the Hindu religion, this pineal gland, or 6th chakra, represents the manifestation of stored energy or Kundalini energy. It’s hidden sacred knowledge. Knowledge from within that culminates when the connection is made through all of the lower chakras. This makes me think of an activated pineal gland as a gift of inner-sight that is rewarded to those who make those connections. We know it’s something desired by many today. Just look at the American dollar bill and you’ll see the third eye symbolism atop a depiction of a pyramid. The Pope carries a pine cone atop his staff. And his house, the Vatican, is chock-full of pine cone symbolism and god/goddess relics that one would assume would be hard to find in a Christian haven.

Pine cones are everywhere loves. From corporate logos to religious art to money money money money. And if this post was solely about our pineal glands I could go on forever about how intentional that is.

So, when Dougie senses what’s going on in another person’s  body, he is using an innate gift that we all have. Children are born more connected, aren’t they? But, this isn’t JUST because they just arrived here. In fact, Dougie’s been around longer than I have. Many of the children being born today are very old souls who have come back with remembered skills and wisdom, and they are coming to parents who can support that in them. So, if you have a noticeably psychic child, have no fear, they have chosen you for a good reason. We now understand that our pineal glands actually may calcify over time. This strongly inhibits our psychic ability. To my knowledge, this was first thought of as an inevitable part of aging. However, there’s loads of evidence that shows diet can play a huge role in calcifying and even de-calcifying our pineal glands.

A child is born into the world without already having eaten years and years of processed foods. This is another big part of what gives them the one up on us adults in the psychic department. Their communication equipment is cleaner. Aluminum is a big pineal gland destroyer. And aluminum can be found in most drinking water, vaccinations, cook-ware, deodorant, food containers and many processed foods and spices including tortillas, breads, chips, and baking powder. There have been studies linking aluminum cookware to Alzheimer’s, and for good reason. Even my son Dougie, the amazing psychic, has been tested to prove an overload of aluminum in his system. This was years ago, while he was still going through major healing from autism-related illness.

So, now you know what makes us all psychic and what makes our kids better at it. Let’s talk about how you can support your children on this Blissful path, and what your role might be.

Eat Clean You don’t need to fret over how many calories or carbs you are having, just keep your eats as free from chemicals, pesticides, and genetically modified franken-foods as possible. Organic fresh food has a higher frequency than food that’s been sitting for a day or a week. Higher frequency foods have a way of connecting us to higher frequencies… So like attracts like in this case. Enjoy many colors of foods and listen to your children’s cravings especially if they are healthy. For example, if your child really digs cucumbers and wants to eat five per day… Go with that. And commend them for choosing something so healthy. This will affirm their intuition.

Live Fluoride, Aluminum, Mercury and Toxin Free Here is a link to aluminum containing products. Get them out quickly as well as other household toxins like detergents and dryer sheets, baby powder, bleach, pasteurized milk, deodorant, unnatural perfumes, and fluorescent lights which contain mercury powder. Here is a link to how Fluoride jeopardizes the functionality of our pineal glands. That means changing our toothpastes and water. http://www.in5d.com/fluoride-free-pineal-gland.html

Work on You Record your dreams in a journal and make a positive intention to remember your dreams before you fall asleep. These dream memories may only be a sentence long at first, but they are very important to remember. When you sleep, your physical eyes and analytical mind is turned off. You are closest to the natural psychic you. Take time to do things that make you feel good. Meditate, pray, do yoga, listen to music. Not only is this good for you, but it shows your kids that they can do the same for themselves.

Listen to Wild Stories Does your son or daughter talk about when they used to be a grown up, life on other planets or their “other family”? These could be past life stories that are important to remember. Listen intently without saying much other than to support the story. Our memories can be jaded by experience and time. If you can record or write down these stories for them to have, this may be very helpful for them in the future. When Dougie talks about Mars, I ask him questions like a reporter would. Things I really want to know. Like, “so why couldn’t you plant green beans?” or “what were some of the plants you could grow?” But I will only interject my questions when he is finished talking.

The same goes for dreams. You can ask about your child’s dreams. But, my suggestion is not to be too leading. So, you might lightly ask, “what did you dream about,” first thing in the morning– and then simply listen without pressing for answers. Then you might wait a few mornings to see if he comes to you to share his dreams. I will drop whatever I’m doing to listen to one of Dougie’s stories.

Freedom at Home So many of these children have been around the moon more times than we have… And they remember it. Allow for as much freedom at home as is possible for their safety. I’m talking about allowing them to cook food, create and hang art wherever they want to, clean, organize, pick out clothes, pay at the grocery store, pick groceries, call friends and relatives who they want to speak to. This will allow them to align more quickly with what they like and who they are.

Play Time For children, play is their work. It helps them solve problems, hone skills and really just explore life. A child with a noticeable psychic gift is still living in a developing child’s body. Lots of playtime is important because they need to decompress, and feel like a kid. I recommend lots of outdoor play as the sunshine is good for their moods as well as Vitamin D intake and of course, the Sun regenerates us. Earth vibrations, like from being bare foot in the soil are also very grounding and calming. Keep electronic toys at a minimum as the man made vibrations can be very disruptive to their senses.

Experience, Expose and Encourage Allow each experience to unfold without expectations. Your child will lead you through stories or signals for what they desire. Generally speaking, our desires lead us to our life’s purpose. Expose them to music of many cultures, languages, colors, stories and positive people of all shapes and colors. Encourage creative outlets like singing, dancing and painting. This is how shamans often connect with their healing gifts. Our art has a way of exposing our soul. And that’s a good thing. I don’t like to make assumptions about my son’s art. instead, I will ask what he made and how he feels about it. Often it’s not what I thought at all.

Unschooling Keep in mind that public education was designed to create beings with set responses to authority. This line of thinking is what got us here having to discuss how to raise a psychic child. We are out of whack with our natural selves because we have subscribed to a system that forces us to try and be like everyone else. Funny enough, we’re not really all that different. But, we must step into our whole selves which includes embracing all of our abilities. Unschooling represents the undoing of that old paradigm. It’s in the experimenting with what we like and want that we discover who we are. As an Unschooling mama, I am pleasantly surprised with how well my son can read, write and analyze data. Unschooling is not about not learning… It’s simply about unblocking that which was holding us back from learning these hidden treasures about ourselves. If you know that regular school is best for your child, trusting that instinct is part of embracing your family’s psychic ability. My suggestion in that case is to take these Unschooling vibes into your home life and feel how that inspires you. Who knows what the future holds for our psychic children? But wouldn’t it be nice to support this ability in them so that they have even more opportunities ahead?

We are all psychic. That doesn’t mean that we are all going to become professional healers. This intuitive ability is needed in every position in the world from mothering to presidenting.

Hello Lovelies,

Today’s Post comes from my Friend, Client, Soul Sister, and fellow autism Advocate.  If you haven’t already checked out the amazing Thinking Mom’s Blog, where she contributes…. do it today.

The idea of “Spiritual Stimming,” represents most of my work to help heal autism. When our kids stim (repetitive behaviors like hand-flapping and spinning), there is a reason. It is natural for them. These movements and habits are meant to bring them into balance.

Spirtitual Stimming, By Guest Blogger: Princess

So, in the day-in-day-out reality of living with a child on the spectrum, do you ever stop and think to yourself, there’s got to be more to this? I mean, at the very least, those of you who believe in God or a higher power must have trouble settling for the idea that autism is merely toxic exposure and the result of corporate greed. This is not to say that it isn’t both of those things, but beyond that – if you believe in God, like I do, then you must often ask yourself more personal questions – why YOU? Why your child? What lessons are you supposed to take from this experience? After all, I don’t know about you, but the God that I like to believe in is loving, caring and wants my very best. I remember really struggling with this in the past – looking at my son and then being unable to fathom how there could be anything good about his autism. How come I got stuck with this terrible tragedy?

Lately, I actually focus way more time on all of its blessings for me. And do you want to know why I do this? I absolutely, consciously and intentionally choose to because every moment is like a new choice all over again. I do this because I don’t like the way the alternative makes me feel. On days where I lose sight of many of these ideas, I feel sad, depressed and like a victim. On the days where I can remind myself of the bigger picture, I feel hope, limitless, excitement. Best of all? It usually opens up a channel, opportunity or possibility that I didn’t have before with my son. Staying committed to comfort and happiness no matter the situation is something that has completely saved me from my past self.

So, as I already design my destination (happiness, finding opportunity with my lot), how do I then build a case full of evidence to support this destination? I have spent hours and hours and hours creating beliefs to support this goal and pondering the purpose for it all. I can’t say I know the ‘right’ answer, nor will I ever with certainty, but using my imagination gives me so much solace and excitement for the future.

I also look to the past and the present to build my case for meaning. I still find pieces from six months ago that are only starting to click now in my life. What a shame it would have been for me to spend the last six months miserable only to now find that there was a purpose for the situation when I could have trusted in this principle from the start and remained trusting of God and the universe that they too had a purpose for my benefit and stayed comfortable all this time?

Some helpful questions I have asked myself are:

  • What can I learn from my son?
  • What is he here to teach the world?

  • How is this experience perfect for me right now?

  • How do I explain his behaviors as meaningful?

Living the persona of victim didn’t really give me an empowered feeling. These questions take the power away from the ‘damage done to me’ to a personalized, specific and intentional path designed just for me by God. And adopting these beliefs doesn’t mean that I don’t stand up for what matters to me anymore either – all it means is that I take the control back by how I respond.

As I’ve created this blueprint for living for myself, I am constantly on the look-out for new opportunities and significance to my life and my son’s autism all the time. Recently, while participating in a guided mediation at a personal development program at the Option Institute, I was instructed to rock back and forth during the meditation where I then addressed God or the Universe for answers to some of my questions (in a series with other repetitious exclusive behaviors). While doing this, I immediately was reminded of my son and his stims or ISMs. I let go into the meditation and allowed my body to sway to its own rhythms, tuning into my core. This was different than the experiences I’d had joining my son (See video on joining here)  in his ISM because it was entirely my own! I moved to my own tempo, intensity and could change the rhythm as I pleased to deepen my connection to myself and to God. I marveled during this experience how deeply spiritual it felt and immediately imagined that all my son’s ISMs were actually his own meditations, tapping into the creator. Wow! What a shift! I now not only saw them as something he needed to do to help himself physically and mentally but now spiritually, too!

Here is an excerpt from a recent blog post I wrote on this experience:

“As we drummed, I shared in the exquisite beauty of his looks to the light peering through our open window, in the midst of the storm – the branches and leaves being heavily swayed by the powerful wind. We looked together and marveled – I could feel God with my son…In the course of two minutes in my mind, by believing that the cause is in the future, I created so much meaning and intention to joining and the experience was wildly different than any other session we’ve ever shared in the playroom. I could feel his real joy at including me and instead of me just attempting to join him in his world, he truly did invite me in. He gave me flashes of smiles of worlds of understanding, occassionally would reach over and beat on my drum too and during one precious moment, relaxed onto the cushioned padding in the corner of the room, assuredly, knowing I’d follow him and as I did, and we both laid in a 90 degree angle with our respective drums, he had the most all-knowing and peaceful smile I’d ever seen. We directed our bodies toward the cracks in the windows and played to God as we watched the branches dance before us.”

This time when I entered my son’s special playroom and joined him in his ISMs, it took on a whole new meaning. I joined him… but truly truly joined him, taking myself back my own experience of ISMing, and our souls danced together! How amazing that I could build such closeness with this special soul gifted to me and to also see it as such a gift!

Now, this could be completely made up – I have no ‘proof’ that this is what he’s doing when he’s exclusive and repetitious, but when I went into his playroom with this belief, he was so much more open and receptive to me – so, either way, it’s here to stay! Am I ignorant for being okay with that? Absolutely not – I am staying true to my #1 goal of being happy with him and my life in this moment by adopting this belief. Nobody is pulling a swift one on me – I am jumping in head first knowing full well that it’s entirely made up by me and not looking back because the end-result feels so good. I already lived life trying to have proof for all my beliefs and it led me to a life of misery and disconnectedness from my son. How can you make up a belief for why your child’s ISMs are amazing or intended to teach you something?

My case is not closed, but I have collected a lot of evidence since I decided to open it for why God brought me this special little guy. He is not just one of the many canaries in the coal mine for our world. He is also MY canary … destined for me specifically — helping me turn my heart and soul into a glistening gold mine.

Or maybe not…?

Hmmm :)

So now’s your chance – you get to decide too.

Coal or gold? What’s it gonna be?

:)

Eat Spirulina Not GMO

English: Blue-green algae cultured in specific media. Blue-green algae can be helpful in agriculture as they have the capability to fix atmospheric nitrogen to soil. This nitrogen is helpful to the crops. Blue-green algae is used as a bio-fertilizer. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Green Food is Good

Allow me to introduce you to Spirulina,  one of our most favorite super foods! With all of the hype about GMO- Monsanto-Franken-Neuro-Toxic-Mutant food, I wanted you to know that you can still get pure amazing nutritious HEALTHY food. Food that can even negate and detoxify you from the ill-effects of eating the packaged poop stuff.

And prevent further damage.

Spirulina, a form of blue-green algae,  boasts 10 times more beta carotene than carrots, is about 65% protein and provides us with essential fatty acids, phytonutrients, probiotics, and antioxidants.

Millions of years ago, before we were even a tear-drop in Mother Nature’s eye – Spirulina flourished. The nutrients contained in the spirulina plant helped our planet evolve. It’s perhaps our earliest ancestor.

To me, it offers one of the simplest ways to end world hunger!  You actually need less food when you eat it because it takes care of so many nutritional needs. It grows easily and well in lakes and oceans, and I’m just discovering that it can even be grown in soil.  Think of what savvy organic growers could do with this stuff!

At times when Dougie and I were in deep healing from his autism and my candida — we THRIVED on spirulina. Just adding it to our diets made us happier, gave us energy, and REALLY curbed sugar cravings. Plus it helps tremendously with brain-fog.

The plant has undergone intense studies for the passed 30 years, and proves safe for the little ones as well. So, don’t worry so much if they won’t eat their lima beans – push the algae, and get super healthy kids.

Dougie had his first serving at age 3 years and 1 day. And, at 3 years and 1.5 days– he was potty trained. That’s without practice. And, experts told us he had autism, and that meant we could expect delays and complete lack in development.

The first time he ever had the kicked-up spirulina blend from Bio-Age (Bioage.com), he buttoned his shirt for the first time. He lost a tic that he had for a few months, and over a small period of time — he began to speak more clearly. We saw so much developmental BLISS with the BIOAGE Algaes, that we removed most of our other supplements. It’s still a staple.

It reduces brain swelling. It sends nutrients where they need to go without making your body work so hard to digest. This is majorly important in autism and many cases of common illness like allergies and auto-immune dysfunction because digestion is so compromised.

My hubby used it as the main healing tool in helping him recover from a seizure disorder and a 12 year reliance on some pretty harsh prescription seizure meds.

Why wouldn’t we want to use spirulina to feed the hungry? It would open their minds and lift their spirits while nourishing them!

Consuming spirulina (algae) has been linked to recovery from diseases like cancer, ADD, and autism. Research also shows significant progress in its effect against the AIDS virus. In my time working with private clients, I’ve been able to see clarity of mind come back to people with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s through the use of  spirulina.

Spirulina is a super food  –which means it is a complete food. Think — something they’d eat on the Matrix. People use spirulina to enhance energy, detoxify poisons (sugar, alcohol, mercury), control weight and balance mood.

Spirulina for Dinner?

So, the question is how does it taste? I’m sure you don’t want to be making yourself an algae salad three times a day just so that you can tout gorgeous skin and enough energy to keep you awake through the night, right? I gotta be honest — some of it is pretty gross! And, while it can be taken in pill-form, you’ve got to watch that you get the purest kind that is without mercury…because if it comes from a toxic lake its got nothing but chems,  metal and junk to share with you.

It must be pure. And, I have my favorites. I’m quite fond of Healthforce Nutritionals TRUGANIC Spirulina Manna. I LOVE Real Food Real Life’s Pro-Daily Otic, which is a fermented blend of algaes (green, grains, seeds and sprouts). Both of these taste so good that  I even get my non-health-food-lovin’ friends to crave them. They can easily blend in a smoothie and even be hidden under some raw chocolate as you transition to adding it to your diet. But, once you’re like me and crave this stuff — you’ll find it tastes great in salad dressings and dips too.  Courtney Pool wrote a whole book on spirulina recipes!

How Much Spirulina Should You Eat?

Always go slowly and learn about a food’s energy when adding  something new to your diet. Spirulina has an expansive energy which means that it pulls your energy up. For some, this can mean headaches. If you’re feeling hyper or light in the head, that can mean you have some stuck energy, and spirulina can exaggerate that. Not to fear.  All greens have expansive energy. Balancing this out with the “grounding” nature of good quality sea salt is enough for some people to really benefit from this amazing algae minus the headaches.

My recommendation to my clients is usually to begin new healing foods even more slowly than suggested on the label, and take close note of how you feel. When you reach a point where you feel good, you may have hit your ideal dosage. But, it has to be built-up-to.  Traditional Chinese Medicine says it takes 100 days of an herb to start feeling the true benefits.

Most people don’t need to consume lots of spirulina to get great results. It’s potent stuff. The more you consume, the more detoxifying it becomes. Smaller amounts can address nutrient deficiencies from the core up. The way I see it is if you are deficient, like we were, it makes sense to go slowly and really allow the algae to work.  Our family shares a spirulina smoothie almost every morning, and we only use about 1 tablespoon of manna or 1-2 capsules of BioSuperfood brand (much less than recommended) in total. In the colder months, we may have  a little less, or at least combine it with more warming and heavier foods in our smoothies like avocado, coconut and cinnamon.

I find the fermented algae from Real Food Real Life to be more grounding.

The fun of natural health is that you build it. Your nutritional needs and tolerances are unique. It’s cool because the experimentation makes you so much smarter about your body and what you put in it. GMO food just causes tumors and sterility.  No fun!

A Heart of Green

Green foods open your heart chakra. It’s becoming even more popular knowledge that our emotions matter. In fact, they create vibrations that actually heal us.  The vibrations that come from your heart chakra are 500+ times stronger than those that come from your brain. So, yes, your thoughts matter. But real brain connections that create change in your life only happen when there is a corresponding emotional experience with your thought.  When you open your heart to emotions like love, gratitude and forgiveness — your body heals. Spirulina opens your heart chakra in the same way! Seriously… have a few servings and tell me if you don’t feel grateful and in LOVE with life. Food can be a healer for our physical and emotional health.

Here is My Fave Way to Eat Spirulina… in Chocolate Of Course!

I wasn’t going to let you leave without this.   This is a recipe for my fermented chocolates. Raw chocolate or cacao is another heart chakra opener!  Some of my clients have a hard time tolerating plain raw chocolate.  But the fermentation and addition of these healing herbs and SPIRULINA seems to take care of that.

I like to add spirulina to it to balance out the acidity in the cacao, and add nourishment. Who knew it would taste so good? Most of my friends are pleasantly surprised.

Reiki Certification for Families

20120808-124737.jpg

We hope you will join us for this beautiful family healing adventure. Adults, couples and CHILDREN 😉 are all welcome.You don’t have to be a parent to attend.

Children, especially children of the now, have such a strong connection to source energy, and they can teach us so much just by being themselves. Our beautiful son, who was once sick with so many environmental toxins, is now a thriving angel who helps us uncover our truths more each day, We dedicate this class to learning from our children, our inner child guides, future children and our own childhoods –in order to bring more light and joy into the world.

We will incorporate Reiki healing how-to’s and history, with inspiration for connecting deeper to your own soul families and bringing healing to our children where it is welcomed.

In this workshop, we will come together as a group for discussion and family exercises, and we’ll also offer special children-only energy exercises while “grown ups” hone their skills and meditate.

The year 2012 lives within an energy field of rapid advancement into higher consciousness for our planet as a living being and all of us who live within Her. There are also major galactic shifts that influence our expansion. We are truly coming into an integration period where we are calling back the parts of our selves that have been lost over lifetimes, and realizing that each one of us holds parts of each other. We are One. And, we are figuring that out.

Ancient Shamans and “medicine people” understood how to live with our planet and use and restore her gifts for the growth of all. Integrating these teachings with modern experience, we can learn to transcend our problems by transforming our perspectives and heightening our vibrations.

We have more than just the power to heal. We have the inner power to shift. This connection offers one of the deepest, most satisfying feelings we have ever experienced and that is why we are sharing it with you now. We know that if this class is calling you — you will really dig it too.

It has changed our family in amazing ways and we are so excited to see how it works for you.

Bliss Tour Summer 2012: Come See Us in Chicago, Cleveland,North Carolina, California, Mexico and More!

20120616-013814.jpg

We’ve spent the last 5 months touring the west coastline of Mexico, and really healing up after some challenges last year. Doug is completely free of seizure meds and hasn’t had a seizure in well over 2 years! We’ve met new and lasting friends, learned so much about the value of family and our beautiful planet’s gifts, and we’ve taught classes and given healing sessions in some pretty magical spaces. Unschooling is the bomb. Dougie is uncovering his true abilities, and it’s amazing to witness and experience with him.

So, we’re ready to Bring the BLISS to YOU!

Do you long for MORE ENLIGHTENMENT?

Do you want to be MORE in-tune with your body?

Would you like to reach your ideal weight and feel great?

Would you like to feel SOURCE ENERGY COURSING through your VEINS?

Whatever you’ve been wanting to experience– We’ve got something to LIGHT Your Path!

Each Day we help people from across the world find their BLISS. Our clients have overcome everything from autism to debt, from cancer to personal & professional relationship slumps — and so much more.

We have a DREAM to create a New BLISS HEALING MOBILE where we can travel the world and bring our services right to the doorsteps of those who desire. ( if you’ve been following us, you know that our first House on Wheels didn’t make he trip, Bless Her Heart). I can just imagine finally hugging in-person some of the lovelies who I’m BLESSED to work with from a distance every day! It’s already happening! And we just want more. Bliss is addictive like that.

So, we decided to go ahead with our tour even before the new House on Wheels comes into fruition! Why wait? We’re going Eco-Style — which means we’ll be taking public and mass transit whenever possible. We’ve got our bus passes and our plan to Be the Change!

We hope you will come out and see us or even help us host an event in your town!

We begin in Chicago on July 14-15 with some high vibe Reiki Certification Classes, and then we travel east, south and west!

The first round of travel through the US will culminate with a week-long Reiki Retreat (All Level Certifications) in a beautiful energy vortex town called Sayulita, Mexico in late September.
