MIRROR WORK

“Both in waking and in dreaming – acknowledging our forgiving self, believing self and our loving self is critical.” -Merging Worlds

Mirror Work is Good for the Soul

Acknowledge your goodness. Say hello, also to the dark parts  – for they want to be seen and heard too. Mirror work is a beautiful practice for this.

Namaste.

WHAT’S IN YOUR FRIDGE?

Certainly, there is no need for it to look like the photo. Open up the door and take a good look. What’s in there? Is there anything “old and mold” you can get rid of?

Any over processed and heavy sodium items you want to replace with cleaner ingredients?

If you can’t bring yourself to do it now, then let’s pick a time to give it an overhaul. Just starting with one shelf can make a difference in how you feel about your refrigerator and motivate you to keep going. Just start somewhere.

It doesn’t have to be a new year for you to begin anew and replace some old habits with healthier new ones.  So, make a plan. Read the labels of each package, packet and jar — and as I always say, make it fun! Involve your kids, your friends, your significant others. Namaste. 🙂

Food Choice

ONE SHELF AT A TIME

Here are some items I keep in mine for inspiration. Namaste. 🙂

5 ITMES I KEEP IN MY FRIDGE

  1. Greens (Kale, Arugula, Spinach and so on)
  2. Coconut or almond milk (unsweetened)
  3. Fruit, berries or pineapple (Raspberry, Blackberry, Blueberry)
  4. Crunchy veggies (Carrots, Celery, Radish)
  5. Brown rice (cooked and ready to use)

PINEAPPLE:

Immune support, bone strength, digestive aid, and an anti-inflammatory pineapple could be defined as — superfood staple.

Did you know that each scale on a pineapple is actually a berry?

First discovered in 1493 on the island of Guadalupe, research indicates that our scaly friend helps reduce mucus and aids in comforting sinus conditions.

It is associated with reducing severe inflammation and tumor growth— and according to a retired professor I met 25 years ago, can sustain us alone for several days if that is all we had to eat.

Pineapples are a complex combination — high in vitamin C and manganese, fiber and the enzyme Bromelain, which breaks down protein, this is one of my top picks for all around healthy eating.

Used in smoothies, sides of fruit or in marinade for meals, we can be sure our 82 calories per cup fruit is a good choice.

FUEL: Steamed Bok Choy and Tomato

Steamed bok choy and native tomato, a plain and simple favorite for me. 

Bok Choy, a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, is chock full of vitamins and antioxidants. Benefits include Omega-3’s, Zinc, and Vitamin A. Bok Choy is included in many studies about cancer prevention. #FUEL #LetsGoUp #Yesrising

Conscious Living

Stillness

Stillness

Both EXTRAORDINARY and HUMBLING, we can all make the CONNECTIONS and CORRELATIONS in our lives to Divine LOVE — we need only to be still.

I AM Ready, Are You?

“Life is about releasing, letting go, and loving each other, lifting one another up. Rising up from the ashes that are our own.”

AWE and HEALING

What I think about AWE:

Heal

Awe and Healing

I believe that when we are in nature, or exercising or practicing yoga or meditating or praying —that we can naturally elevate ourselves into a state of “Awe”. In that place of recognizing something greater than ourselves — where something vast and magical and mysterious is happening — where all our blood is pumping through our body’s cells in wonder and reverence for life—that we open up energy channels where the “aliveness of life” heals.

“That awe, wonder and beauty promote healthier levels of cytokines suggests that the things we do to experience these emotions – a walk in nature, losing oneself in music, beholding art – has a direct influence upon health and life expectancy,” is what UC Berkeley psychologist Dacher Keltner has also said on the subject.

My prediction is that in time our “way out thinking” about energy and healing will become synonymous with medical research findings — that we have everything within us we need to heal. So why not begin today? Namaste. ‪#‎LetsGoUp‬

There is a 30 second video on the Yesrising Facebook page where I explain my thought on Awe and Healing.
