Bliss Cleanse 2012 Eating for Manifestation– Recipes, Results and Breakthroughs

We decided to change things up a bit in Bliss Land and try a full cleanse in honor of aligning with our higher selves.

Food is not only a way to get energy, but food is vibration itself. So, of course we started playing with food — even more-so than we usually do. This cleanse incorporates high vibrational raw living foods, wild foods, power herbs, and nutrient dense superfoods. Plus, we are focussing a lot more on keeping our thoughts aligned with what we really want.

Do you know how much energy is truly wasted when you allow your mind to drift into worry, doubt and fear?

So, there will be meditation, yoga, and plenty of surprises– and of course, we are planning to share how it changes our lives.

The best part if this cleanse is that each of us is honoring our unique needs and therefore may eat slightly differently and choose different practices.

Good News! We Have a Guest Joining Us on Our Cleanse!

A great friend and dear client, Moe, has decided to join our cleanse with us. Since we are currently living in the same house– this works out best for all of us. We all have deeper support and the extra help in the kitchen is great too!

During the course of our cleanse, we will share Moe’s breakthroughs and results as this is her first cleanse and she has her own goals.

Today marks our 3rd official day Bliss Cleansing together!

The Recipes (from 9/18)

Herbal Elixir

Ingredients:
1 cup herbal decoction from 9/17
1 whole coconut (meat and water)
1/2 large avocado
1tsp cinnamon
1-2 cups carrot, ginger, celery, fennel juice (fresh)
Chlorella
MSM (for skin healing and bone healing from car accident last year)

Process:

Blend all of the ingredients together and drink as much as you need.

Us three adults had about 12 oz and Dougie had 6 oz. Then, I drank more later on in the day.

Zucchini Noodles and Sauce X 2

Ingredients/ Sauce 1:

3 cloves of fermented garlic (fermented in olive oil, coconut oil, honey, coconut kefir and raw apple cider vinegar for 30+ days)
1 avocado
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
Juice of 1 lemon
Dash sea salt
1/4 cup delicious raw organic olive oil

Process:

Blend and mix into raw spiral-sliced zucchini noodles

Ingredients/ Sauce 2:

2 tblsp GF Dijon Mustard with horseradish
1/4 cup of amazing olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Sea salt
Cumin, curry powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and a sprinkle of nutmeg
Shaved almonds

Process:

Whisk all ingredients together except almonds and mix into your bowl of noodles. Top with almonds.

Kale Chips ( We didn’t eat these entirely raw for purposes of Thyroid Love)

Ingredients:

1 lb of yummy kale
Juice of 2 lemons
Coconut oil and olive oil to completely coat kale
sea salt, garlic powder, curry, cumin, cayenne and nutmeg (in keeping with flavors in the noodles)

Process:

Cut off kale stems
Drench kale in the above ingredients
Line a baking sheet with the kale leaves
Bake at lowest temp for a few hours or until it reaches your desired texture.
We make them crisp but not burned ( burned food promotes cancer)

Liver Lovin Juice

As we transition into cleansing phase we ate a lot of fat on our first 2 days. We needed it. Fat is a great source of caloric energy, and also warms your adrenals and has a lot to do with brain health. But, we also wanted to give our livers some more help, as our livers must process those fats. Of course raw, organic fats are much easier to digest. ( note: there is already liver support in our elixir… milk thistle, schisandra etc)

Ingredients:
5 carrots
1bunch celery
1 fennel bulb
3 inches ginger
2 whole lemons… rind and all
2 heaping tablespoons of curry powder (cumin, saffron, turmeric, garlic)

Process:

Juice the veggies and stir in the powder

We each drank as much of this juice as we needed.

Doug had about 12 oz. Dougie had about 4 oz and i had about 6 oz. We really didn’t need more.

The key for us is not to feel bloated when drinking, and to moderate our liquid intake so as not to cool down our systems too much, feel cold, have an energy crash or experience frequent urination. These symptoms are a result of over-hydration which I experienced after going all raw vegan for a period that was too long for my body.

By over-hydrating, I actually did to myself what the Chinese Med teachers warned me about– I put out my digestive fire and wound up hungry, losing weight and energy, and being cold all of the time. So, although raw veganism worked for me for a very long time, I’ve had to adjust it to make it more sustainable and this includes moderating liquid intake.

Lemon Bars

Crust Ingredients:

2 cups soaked raw oats
1 cup shredded coconut
Coconut oil
Sea salt
Zest of 1 lemon
Handful soaked dates
Splash vanilla

Filling Ingredients:

Juice of 10 lemons
Zest of 2 lemons
2 avocados
2tblsp coconut butter
2 tblsp soaked Irish moss

Process:

Blend crust ingredients
Add in some coconut oil to both whirl it around and help it stick together once it’s formed
Form into a 6×8 in pan
Refrigerate crust for about an hour

Blend filling ingredients well, and be sure the Irish moss is completely soaked in
Pour into crust
Refrigerate for a few hours (the Irish moss will help it set really well)

Bone Broth

We had some more bone broth throughout the day. This time we seasoned it like French Onion Soup just for fun!

We also ate 3 yummy salads that Doug made with shredded veggies and various delicious combos of herbs and spices.

And then there was quinoa. All 4 of us really felt the need to have the grounding energy of quinoa.

Breakthroughs:

We are really not eating much differently than we usually do. But there is a lot more intent to stay on a high vibrational level.

We made a vision board and are of course seeing exact things come into fruition. This always amazes me!

If you remember that one of our goals was to help Dougie, cognitively. Well, we’ve seen results in the first day. He is truly connecting deeper with concepts we’ve been working– on especially with math.

Healing really happens when you sleep!

When you are awake, your immune system is awake–fighting parasites that threaten your skin, or battling fight or flight situations. But, when you sleep, your immune system goes deep within and can do things like re-populate your gut with healthy bacteria, transfer waste where it needs to go, give your organs a rest and so much more! Many of us are constantly in fight or flight stress mode and cannot heal no matter what good foods we eat.

I am grateful for the intention to get myself out of stress mode and get some real energy back.

I have been able to spend a whole lot more time meditating, and napping together with Dougie each afternoon.

Plus, we have been getting the boy in bed at moonrise. This is an amazing feat. We are very grateful for his new schedule. 😉

We’ll be on touch sharing all we can about how this Bliss Cleanse helps us!

Some People Just KNOW What to Eat: What’s Your Take?

20120616-101335.jpg

Tell me, what’s your take on carbs? Are they good for you? Or bad? Where’d you read that? More importantly, how do you feel when you eat carbs? Or fats? Or sugar? Have you dabbled in superfoods, herbs, vaganism? Paleo? How about raw foods? Do tell.

What Food Works ?

Have you ever supermarket-stalked those uber sexy model-lookin’ babes whose skin glows and hair whisps in the breeze as they trot on their clouds of fairy dust passed you with carts full of …. What is that? What is she eating that makes her look so good? Then, maybe you get a confusing glimpse of what’s actually in the cart and think…. Oh maybe that’s for her boyfriend or something… Admit it! You want to know what works for people.

I know I did. I wanted that skin. But more-so, I wanted that energy. I used to be so deplete. And I pretty much always ate healthy according to our current but outdated food pyramid and FDA recommendations. But, as soon as I wised-up and did my own personal research and experimentation– I learned that the keys to eating healthy, and even eating to heal illness were really very simple. And, it all began with the notion of doing the opposite of what is publicly “advertised” as healthy.

How Much Does Food Really Matter?

Food Matters. It’s one of the main ways that we get energy. But, once you crack the code on what’s right for you– food doesn’t matter that much anymore. In order to get to this place of satisfaction, you often have to dig deep and really begin to notice how you feel. It can be a challenge, if you’ve been convinced that someone else like your doctor or the FDA could take care of your nutritional needs.

“They” tell us to eat low-fat, and I pretty much did until my late 20’s– replacing things I loved like butter with margarine which is chemically derived. This was not to stay trim, but instead to keep “healthy” and feeling good. But, butter can be a very healthy fat with brain-building, gut-building and hormonal balancing properties. It’s also rather grounding in nature and provides natural healthy calories to energize and keep your metabolism going. We are finding that many of us are deplete in these brain-building fats and experience headache, brain-fog and even autistic or Alzheimer’s-like symptoms where there is a deficiency in saturated fats and fatty acids. I learned this through experiencing my son’s autism journey with him as well as my own candida (systemic fungal infection) recovery.

Personally, I love fermenting raw, organic farmer’s market butter with some olive oil, coconut oil and raw honey to created a delicious, predigested spread that is easily absorbable by your body and has the power to help heal up a leaky gut. The fermenting process breaks down nutrients that may have been harder to digest. This even lessens the load that fats can have on your liver. We also love coconut oil, fatty fish and their oils, and sometimes egg yolks.Yum yum yum!

But, again, “they” disagree. They want you to believe that saturated fats are triggers for heart disease and bad cholesterol, even though they have the opposite effect for many. It’s interesting to me that our brains are in dire need of good fats, and yet doctors for the establishment would tell us to avoid them. Hmmmm… Some of the most beneficial foods in our autism recovery have been fermented cod liver oil, fermented raw butter, coconut oil, hemp oil, fish oil, and other oils. They are anti-inflammatory. When we were raw vegan, I only took cod liver oil out of our diet for about 2 months, just to experiment. For us, no raw vegan supplement proved to be a better replacement. With cod liver oil in particular, in his diet — my son has clearer speech, more organized thoughts and speech, is calmer and overall happier. There is also a noticeable difference in his skin. Without cod liver oil in his diet, he often wakes up with puffy eyes and a headache.

And this is trending now, by the way. So many people are waking up and learning what to eat to make them feel great… And ditching the old food pyramid. It’s highly probable that the old food pyramid (which is the current FDA food pyramid) grew out of an agenda to weaken us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Most of our “fresh” food is sprayed with chemicals that originated as weapons for Hitler’s army. That’s right, common pesticides were first used as neuro-gasses. So, ask yourself why this is not only in our food supply, but it is being mandated and subsidized while our organic food supply is being threatened by big GMO corporations like Monsanto (who are even patenting seeds that already contain pesticides).

I wonder if this whole Fake-Food Movement that’s been rolling out over the last 60+ years has something to do with our collective declining energy and health? Do you wonder this? I wonder why we would even need vitamin supplements. Why doesn’t our food have enough nutrition to sustain us?

I’m Not Buying It

I don’t take vitamins. I don’t eat tofu or other processed soy junkage. Soy, which is a largely subsidized GMO crop has been proven to lower thyroid function, and I’ve felt the energy-sucking effects first-hand. I’m fortunate to be sensitive and capable of recognizing how food effects me.

I don’t buy food enriched with vitamins. I don’t buy eggs with added “omega 3s.” I don’t buy diet foods, convenience foods, packaged –frozen health foods or foods stored in containers like aluminum and plastic that leach chemicals into what we eat. I don’t buy bottled water (unless in Mexico). I steer clear of fresh fruit unless it’s organic, because I’m quite sensitive to chemical sprays. I know this through personal experimentation, and process of elimination. It helps that you can find extensive research that points to the dangers of fake and franken-foods. But, then again, you can find proof for anything. For me, this is an empowering fact. It means that there are many truths and that you can forge your own path. What really works for you? Research the effects of foods that you are intuitively called to eat and cross-reference that info with sources from all sides. Learn why you feel tired after eating corn and why you crave salt or sugar. These are empowering tools. I bet you find that you need to create your own food truth.

Informed Indulgence

If I am going to splurge on a packaged snack, I am going to do it with style. I’m not going to hide from the facts. I am not fooled by the processed food industry. I know that none of it promotes real health. I know that if I eat a bag of chips, I’m not getting vitamins. I’m not getting clean fat or protein. And, depending on the quality of the product, I may be getting negative nutrition. Which is to say that the amount of chemicals and indigestible crap I’d be consuming might leave me hungry. And toxic ( which is a word that’s also very trendy right now).

I understand that vitamin pills will probably go un-absorbed and may even cause damage because they often do not contain the co-factors needed to fully absorb them.

But, I’m not a food priss. Sometimes I know that eating is what’s most important. Over-thinking on the food-front can drive you bonkers. And sometimes, I just plain like to eat to enjoy the taste of something.

So, if I am going to eat “junk food” I’m going to do it with style. I’m going to choose the ice cream because at a least that’s Matt Stone approved, and this dude knows what he is talking about. I met Matt at the Fitness Expo in LA where we both spoke about food. Matt mentioned that you can basically forget about proper food absorption if your body temperature is low. Well, guess what? I was a cold hands and feet girl forever! So are many of my clients who are also quite sensitive and intuitive people. And, I’ve always had nutrient absorption issues.

What does it matter that you’re eating the healthiest food on the planet if none of it is getting absorbed? Believe it or not, I had this issue myself. After using a raw food vegan, probiotic, superfood diet to heal myself from systemic candida, I experienced what Chinese Medicine would call Spleen Qi Deficiency, and also Spleen Dampness. in Chinese Medicine, this means that my temperature was low, my energy was low, fluids were not moving properly, I felt heavy. In essence it meant that raw foods, which are very cooling in nature did not actually heal my candida problem. They simply energized me enough to get to the next step. Most of my clients are in the same boat. Strangely enough my story was beginning to sound a lot like what Matt shared at the conference. I always had the chills. I had a weak bladder. I was underweight, and hungry enough to eat most anything that didn’t run away from me. And again, I was seeing parallels in my clients too. So, I had to dig deeper.

According to Matt’s research and self-experimentation (and work with his own clients), he found that no matter how “healthy,” and we’re talking really healthy like the organic, raw food crazy guru healthy, people ate…. It takes a warm body temp of at least 98.6 to keep the metabolism functioning. So, like I learned in Chinese Med Classes, if things are too cold, your spleen is not going to help turn your food into energy. From Matt’s perspective, we also see the mal effects low body temp have on hormones and therefore enzyme production. This could mean that for some people, eating a cooling raw food diet for a long time, may cause you to not absorb anything. Which kind of explains why I got those once-in-a-while cravings for pizza or ice cream.

Matt has found some healing power in the unlikely form of processed foods. Some processed foods have the ability to raise our body temps quickly and get us out of panic mode. That’s why we go for the chips or pretzels or pizza after we wait too long to eat. In a sense, we a following our intuition. Once your body temperature is raised you can go back to eating more balanced. This is not exactly a quick fix, although it may feel like it. For example, you can have a great relationship with a slice of pizza and completely regain energy and feel amazing, but for complete relief, you would need to find your true balance.

Think For Yourself

If you are having thyroid and adrenal issues, this would be something to think about.  What can you do to warm you up and start your metabolism going? I don’t advocate junk food for health– but I fully acknowledge its potential. I would hope that some sugar, salt fat and carb -laden natural dish could have the same effect. But, according to Matt Stone’s talk, ice cream is totally where it’s at.

So, I put it to the test.

I figured that at the very least, ice cream will provide me with some fat to get my metabolism going. And let’s not forget that it’s just plain delicious. I postulate that the joy response triggered by ice cream will boost my serotonin, make me happier, nicer and more likely to attract hot clients and cool conversations. Processed health foods, like soy protein powder, may do just as much harm to my body without making me smile. This way I also save money for the farmer’s market because ice cream is cheaper than power bars.

Experiment For Yourself

I’ve experimented with a few of Matt’s suggestions which for me translated into allowing myself to have some sugar, gluten and dairy, and less liquids. All liquids cool your body. This also relates to frequent urination and spleen dampness. Perhaps there were other nutritional factors in the cheese or bread that I had overlooked before. Typically, if you have candida overgrowth and spleen problems you’d want to avoid these foods that cause extra dampness or mucous in your body. Another crazy paradigm buster. These foods should’ve made me feel sicker. All it took me was to enjoy a small amount of this “new food” and a good intention, and my body temp is normal, I have more energy and feel much better. I think I might write another piece about how healthy food was killing me… Too dramatic?

Well, it was kind of killing me. My favorite part of this new food awakening is that I’m eating some sweet foods again, which simply opens up my options. I’d always had the sneaking suspicion that candida feeds more on imbalance than it does on sugar. But as part of our recovery from candida and autism, I removed all sugar for nearly a year. Even fruit. Maybe this does need to be done in extreme cases. I think I only required the ice cream jolt because I went from one extreme to another. As a quite sensitive person on all levels, not creating restrictions has been the best gift I’ve given myself.

Now I’m eating raw and cooked fish, an abundance of raw and cooked organic vegetables, some seeds and grains, some raw dairy– preferably fermented with BACTERIA, bone broth (bye bye vegan days), tons of coconuts, avocados, and occasionally pizza because it makes me so happy –and I’m traveling and having to improvise. I’m eating what I feel like eating. Simple stuff. I’m not saying “no” because of dogma. I’m saying “no” because I don’t want certain foods right now. Eating food and not skipping meals is far more important for me now than having the perfect meal. I’m having no reactions to some gluten or cheese. I’m feeling energetic. My skin would make the old me so freaken jealous. And, the raw fish feels very good for me. I digest it so well. I’ve laid off the quinoa for a bit and sometimes have some rice or lentils, because it’s what feels best now.

I’m sure as time goes by this too will change for me. When I was raw vegan I felt sooo good for a pretty long while. But, by nature I’m thin, cool, and sensitive. I feel much warmer and grounded with animal products in my diet.

Trust Your Gut

I’ve learned to eat intuitively, and go with the flow of change. My needs change. When I went raw vegan, there was a paradigm shift in me. One that had been brewing since the day I was born. Raw Veganism inspired me to eat slower, more consciously and closer to the earth. It inspired mucho gratitude and mucho physical and spiritual health. But, it so did not sustain me. There was a point when I had seizures and realized I was very deplete in nutrients and food energy that can only be gotten through incorporating animal products into my diet.

I hated the thought of eating animals. And, now that I’m in Mexico, foster-parenting chickens — I find my bleeding heart even more in-tune with nature. I truly don’t believe that any human can have all of the answers about what we NEED to eat. But, for some reason, right now– I’m flying on cloud BLISS with a small amount of meat in my diet.

Now, I don’t crave anything, because I don’t allow myself to become deplete. Food is delicious. Food helps bring people together. I’m an advocate for the cleanest most high-vibe eats possible, growing and sharing our own food, and being informed about what our food is made from so that we can make educated choices. And, now I see the purpose of foods beyond my slanted vegan perception. There is healing power everywhere!

Own Your Truth

I’m intuiting a lot of information about why many people are gravitating toward veganism and vegetarianism. It makes so much sense for the planet and does loads of good for personal detoxification. Raw food, in particular is vibrationally very high, and can help open your pineal gland. Many of my students intuitively go raw when taking Psychic Skool. But, there is so much that we don’t face as humans. Scientifically, it’s super difficult to really pinpoint where we even came from. We don’t necessarily “fit” in nature the way other animals do. So, how can we compare? A great raw vegan diet pretty much encompasses the necessary nutritional profile to keep you going…. If lots of other things are in place. I may go back to it one day. For now, the animals (fish) who I eat are okay with me consciously consuming them… Which I do a few times per month. I also fully understand that there is no death. Life energy continues infinitely.

What about you? I’m curious if food matters to you and if you’ve experimented and found something that works for you, but contradicts the “norm?” I’d love to hear what it is.

Homemade Veggie Chips Recipe

Whip these chips up in a jiff and have a healthier snack for your family. Dip them in guacamole, hummus, seed cheese, or your favorite spread, and store in a paper bag. Plastic makes them all mushy. If you want to have a bunch on hand, it’s best to make extra dough and freeze until your ready to dehydrate and eat them– because they taste better this way. And they won’t last too long in the fridge.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3 large zucchini squash
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • ½ cup fresh dill
  • 2-3 tsp celery seed
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Pinch sea salt

Process

Shred your zucchini and carrots in a food processor, add in chopped green onion, dill, celery seed and olive oil and sea salt — and process for about 1 minute. Your mixture should be slightly sticky.

Raw Method: Spoon cracker sized servings onto dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for 5-6 hours. Flip your chips every two hours. I use an Excalibur dehydrator at 115 degrees.

Baked Method: Spoon cracker sized servings onto a greased pizza stone and bake on low for 2-3 hours or until crispy. Flip your chips after 1 hour.

Variations: add spinach, arugula, and vary the herbs for different flavors.

Energy Shifts Increase the Necessity for Eco Conscious Living Now

20111026-145340.jpg

I was never a deep follower of astrology. Mostly because I never found the time to absorb all of the math involved, and I’m not interested in the trendy horoscope stuff you find in the check-out lane next to the tabloids. I want the real deal. So, I waited until I was ready. I’m by no means an authority on the subject, but my reading is revealing how my personal summer of cleansing for the sake of consciousness boosting, and the global occurrences of the “Occupy” groups, assassinations of “terrorists, ” and the “elite energy’s” grappling to retain power over the people– has all been written in the stars.

While I certainly haven’t followed astrology, I’ve had my own recent astral travels and dreams through wormholes, into alternate dimensions and galaxies and have been made aware of the needed upcoming changes in our way of life here on earth. I’ve also been made aware though my communication with guides, in dreams as well as through my own reading and studying that we have plenty of help from nature and source energy (God, Goddess, Spirit, Angels, Guides, whoever/whatever you like to call it) during this transitional period. We have been evolving since we came into being, but these days are proving to be a rapid evolution of consciousness that opens up our awareness of our connection to our planet even more.

In order to incarnate here, it seems we decided to lose our true divine nature. Perhaps that was necessary to accomplish all of the technological advances throughout the centuries. After all, pain inspires humans. But all of that pain that has piled up over time has been sitting in our collective emotional bodies, awaiting for the right moment to be set free in healing. Could this have been set in the stars too?

Tonight’s a new moon in Scorpio which completely cosmically supports my own families personal efforts to cling to mama earth energy ( as we are Eco-fying our RV and offering ourselves to the world as healers). This energy is also completely supportive of the needed disconnects that had to happen for us this summer, as our path becomes clearer. Globally, we all need to shift our intentions and attention to the needs of our planet because she provides us with everything we need for survival, and as I am learning — so much more than that once we jump on board. The “negative” energies of blaming, judging and resisting are old patterns that we taught ourselves. Perhaps as survival mechanisms. A lot of those negative energies are surfacing just as parasites resurface when you go on a cleansing diet. It’s their final call for help.

What I think we really need to understand is that these negative energies are a valid part of us that feels it must fight to survive. We are energetically and cosmically supported, and will thrive if we learn to welcome in and help shift the intentions of that small percentage of ourselves. It is not your sister who is fighting you. It is you who is fighting you.

The world is set for growth and it says so everywhere. Personally, I’ve never been so sure that it’s okay to reveal my truest thoughts as I do now….and I have a recollection of my past lives. What we feel personally is a microcosm of what is going on across the planet. Centuries ago, groups like the Free Masons or Illuminati were formed so that people could freely share their ideas. Perhaps their original agendas were pure and only kept secret for their safety. Now, the threats to our safety from these groups who have created unhealthy restrictions on our food supply and money (to name a few) represents our own fear that we cannot control our own lives. I see these as old patterns that are dying. While they seem real, they do not represent the rich planet that we actually live on. Once we all come into our power by connecting to the earth, and our purpose here, the need for hidden negative agendas will fizzle away. And so will the need for secret societies.

Threats are really only as real as we make them. If we focus more on what we love rather than what we fear or hate, we will be gifted with more of what we love. I keep hearing the words of a farmer I met last year who said….’nothing good ever dies on God’s earth’. This planet will survive. And all that is not innately good for the earth will transition into something that is. To me that means that to some extent the recent upheavals are good for us. We are evolving and it will get as messy as it needs to be for us to wake up.

When you begin waking up to what life and you are really made from, you have no choice but to serve the planet and her people. You will find that these days it is much easier to purchase goods that harm our planet than those that support her. Most grocery stores, clothing stores, malls, etc. sell products that are made from toxic materials that harm our atmosphere and the people making them. Much of the money you spend on these products goes to make rich people richer so they can invest in secret money trades, chemicals and processes that further harm us all. Down the line you will notice that much of these items cannot be recycled or cause even more damage to the planet to recycle them. Food that lines your grocery shelves is devoid of nutrition yet full of things that can kill you. And worse yet, if you’re savvy you can see the conspiracies behind why our food is making us sick. The smartest of us know that even eating organic and shopping at a health food store doesn’t guarantee food safety and is sometimes simply another trick to take more of our money and punish us for our conscious consumerism. Despite all of this, or perhaps because of this, I see a huge light. A light that says to get even closer to the earth, dig deeper. Learn more. If the grocery store was perfect, what need would we have for growing our own foods?

The earth misses farmers who planted crops and tended to them. There is plenty more space on this earth that is still untainted, and even much that can be healed. Getting close to the ground and creating a garden says that you can control your food supply. The connection with the earth’s rhythm is so healthy for you that companies have successfully replicated it for sale and it’s used in healing cancer and autism (to name a few). Get your hands in the soil and you get that vibration running through you free of charge. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, working closely with plant life is considered very restorative to your jing ( like your essence…. Breath of life). It’s also helpful in restoring balance to your yin which is your structure- bones, blood etc. Your yin is your female energy. When you hear of the Divine Feminine, you are hearing about that collective feminine energy that we have forsaken for centuries. This energy is the core we are built on. And, because it has been lost for most of human existence here…. We are crumbling. All of the recent public outbursts that threaten our power and health are symbolic of how we a crumbling at our core. But, when this happens, it is important to know that rebirth is really the only option. Death does not exist so that is not an option. We are not truly threatened, but challenged to get closer and closer to the truest truth for us.

Getting closer and closer to nature has helped me keep balanced and feel safe and positive while I see others trembling in fear. Of course I believe in a creator, and guides and those energies have helped me. And they are also a part of nature. When you can delete from your life any energies that you come across which harm nature (for me this means chemical-laden foods and products, negative media, etc) and welcome time outdoors and in meditation,  you will see that you only crave more of the same and your awareness of your purpose also becomes much more clear.

Go stick your hands in some dirt, my friend. Take time to enjoy your planet. The rewards for taking care of her are beyond what I can describe. And, you are fully supported during your time of massive expansion.
