Have a Juicy Thanksgiving: Delicious Raw Vegan Holiday Alternatives

 

Good Morning Loves!

Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Day here in the US, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the BLISS I’ve experienced from a high raw vegan lifestyle. This is the kind of EATING that opens your MIND. In that light, we have a guest post today from Allison Brooks, who shares a mix of past info and modern science. Max Gerson was using raw juices to cure cancer in the 50s, and finally, we have modern science to support those of us on that healing path. YUM!

Get Juiced!

Not in the steroid sense, but sorta…

Many people today don’t understand how food really works with our bodies (or at least I didn’t). Most  of us know that there are healthy foods, processed foods, fuel foods, and then those fast-foods, but not everyone knows how those foods work with our body.

It wasn’t until the document, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, came out that I learned what phytochemicals, lycopene, and other foreign words were. But after some research I learned how these natural chemicals interact with our body to promote healthy function, and that all my “natural” foods weren’t so natural anymore.

Many of these natural mixes and chemistry-knowledge have led many naturopathic and homeopathic practitioners to produce immune boosters to help the body during its weakest times. These range from common cold remedies, to post-workout relief, and to more serious issues like cancer. This does not mean that these juices cure cancer, but instead aid the body and keep it strong during very intense conventional treatments.

Many doctors see that benefits from these natural juices and have recommended patients with a low-survivability rate cancer, such as non-hodgkin’s lymphoma or pleural mesothelioma, to practice juicing with specific recipes or take classes to learn the helpful components of each ingredient. This is not only a healthy addition for patients, but it also gives them a sense of control when life might seem out of their reach.

So today, I have listed a couple of yummy recipes to spur any cleanse, detox, immune boost, or just healthy treat for all you “Bliss Bombs.”  The best part is that the prep time is just a matter of seconds. Hope you enjoy!!

How Can Your Intuition Save the World?

Yes, You Can Save the World!

Some may tell you that saving the world  is about  LOVE. Oh yes — “Love conquers all,” and “Love will prevail”

These Love Actionists (myself included) would be correct because the vibration that comes from your heart is the strongest one that your body emits. Stronger than your mind. We now understand that the heart frequency has much more control over our well-beings than we once thought. Read more

365 Books to Bliss: Book 2–“Cell-Level Healing” By, J.W. Hawkes, Ph.D

Cover of "Cell-Level Healing: The Bridge ...
Cover via Amazon

I just finished reading “Cell -Level Healing: The Bridge from Soul to Cell”  By, Joyce Whitely Hawkes, PhD. I was naturally drawn to the book because I have a deep interest in how our cells and physical bodies respond to energy healing. I mean, I know it works — but what happens on the cell level?

Dr. Hawkes is a scientist whose near-death experience left her with the consciousness of her power to use energy to help others heal. Her science background has proven really useful, because  she not only  understands life at the cell level –she has the equipment to measure it.

I’m also particularly interested in stem cell therapy. A few years ago, I kept getting major messages from friends, co-workers,  books, teachers and the voices in my head about stem cells and autism. As many of you know, my son has recovered from severe autism.

I could see how stem cell therapy could really benefit people with autism…. and it since has benefited them. But, in my personal life — medications and medical interventions (especially those that involve needles) are a real last resort. My interest in stem cells comes from my desire to somehow re-create the therapy energetically.

I’ve already been at practice with that. But, I figured that this book would teach me something I need to know in regards to my energetic healing experiments.

Dr. Hawkes does a great job of detailing the components of the cells and their functions, as well as how she tunes in to use this info in order to spread healing at the cell level.  One thing that particularly caught my attention is the swirling nature of the cells, the swirling nature of our chakras, the swirling nature of the kundalini energy (not mentioned in this book, btw), and the swirling nature of ancient symbols (not mentioned in this book). Our galaxy, our cells, and the energy around us are  swirling swirling swirling.  Pretty rad.

She provides  us with meditations and visualizations to help become more aware and appreciative for our bodies and the NOW. She says, and I agree that this is a necessary part of healing.  She also describes how she uses a series of techniques in order to get into a deep openness for the energy to flow. What’s super cool about this  is that Dr. Hawkes’ brain waves have been recorded during the times of her healing (even even distant  healing), and the amount of synchronized brain activity is amazing.

It rocks to have scientific proof of the practices that I have so much faith in. I have a little bit more info to help me on my path as an energy healer.

This book is a quick and easy read that gives a very basic take on how energy healing affects our health  at our core. Read it if that sounds awesome to you.
