What the whuuuuut?
Rennet is made of the stomachs of newborn calves … found in parmesan cheese, velveeta to name a few … Vitamin D is derived from lanolin which is an oil secreted by sheep … found in Minute Maid juices “fortified with Vitamin D” … Gelatin made from the collagen inside animals’ skin & bones … found in Altoids … OMFG! I am tossing out my cinnamon
I woke up remembering a “health” product that I was ordering … a meal replacement
powder with a “chocolate marketing company” … I was ordering two bags a month to meet the monthly requirement … as well as having 30 servings, breakfast for a month … it was not until I gave up that “product line” because no one can eat
$110 worth of chocolate in a month … that part was insane … and because I had
distanced myself from the product line for a good couple of months … it was when
I picked up the bags again to use up the remaining products … that I re-read the
ingredients. I came across something that I had missed so many previous times reading the ingredients … SUCRALOSE!
I was paying $75 for a bag of 14 servings … AND THEY FUCKING PUT POISON IN MY FOOD????
Have you read the labels on foods lately???
Is it time to educate yourself?
Know what you are putting into your body?
Instead buy fresh fruit and vegetables …organic would be the best.
Instead buy raw milk and raw cheeses ...
Instead buy from your neighbor who is raising animals on pasture and not
supplementing with grains (read GMO corn) …
KNOW YOUR FOOD!
AND WHERE IT COMES FROM!
STOP THIS INSANITY!
Vote with your dollar! ………… I am.
This morning I was feeling drained, depleted, and in general under-nourished … and it had absolutely nothing to do with food … it was an energetically drained feeling … oh sure I had some food … but it was not until just now that I had live foods that I am feeling perked up again … like one of those air blown decorations … when you turn off the blower … the balloon figure … just wafts to the ground as it deflates … **points to self** … yup that was me this morning!
I just finished my lunch … local restaurant (The Kitchen) … awesome Asian food … down to earth ingredients from local farmers … and a bombastic coconut curry sauce … **doing a little jig in my chair** … and I am feeling like the blower has been turned on … and I come to life as the air fills the folds of fabric of me … and begins to billow outward … smiling as I go …
And then I realized something that I’ve always called myself … a Foodie … yes … I tend to “use” foods much more than just allowing it to fuel my body … I “come alive” with certain foods … Like “whoa!” … right??? And now that I’m back in me and functioning again … I cannot begin to tell you how great I feel right now … It’s like 180 degrees …
What are you doing to nourish yourself?
As I enter the office to sit down and write this ... the Robin is back ... flying into the windows of the office ... I haven't seen her in a few weeks now ... she's back with a message for me ... I ask for the wisdom to understand the message ... as she flies into the windows and sometimes able to get a hold on the window frame and stares through the window at me ...
Yesterday I consciously chose not to take any supplements ... what is it that I wished to accomplish??? Today I am feeling ... all parts of my body ... I feel myself leaning forward while walking ... there seems to be a heaviness under my skin ... today I am feeling all areas of pain in my body ... some feels like sore muscles in my shoulders and down my back ... some pain is getting my attention in my lower back, sciatic kinda feelings ... some pain is in my joints, the hips, knees, and ankles ... today I am feeling my body ... what is it sharing with me? What would you like me to be or do today body? I have been seeking pain relief for many years ... over a decade ... always masking ... never quite getting to the root of it ... what causes pain? Is it different for each of us? What "numbing agents" do we use? Perscription drugs, over the counter drugs, natural remedies, natural supplements ... I've never done any kind of drugs ... the ones that would show up on random drug testing ... and alcohol has never been an active participant in my life ... usually falling alseep right after I finish a glass of wine ...
Does pain create awareness?
I would say I'm very aware of my body right now ...
Does pain create appreciation?
Are we appreciative that we are alive? That we have feelings? That we can even feel anything? That's an individual one isn't it??? For everyone is different ... and pain is felt different for some ... while others have a lower pain tolerance. But we all feel pain. Same, same but different? Yes.
What can I be appreciative of today that will allow me to see my pain as a means for growth ... Am I willing to stay in the uncomfortable-ness? It makes me feel inactive ... like I just wanna cuddle in a comforter with the dogs ... ahhhh but will that make me more sore??? Yes. I've done that before ... Is it time for a soak in the tub??? I think that feels good ... maybe some gray sea salt? Yes I can visualize that as something the body would like right now.
I'm in a space today ... that takes me back to what worked for me in the past ... homeopathy ... I am aware that taking homeopathic remedies will feel good to my body today. And yet ... somehow Attunement wanted to be in the title of this ... what is attunement? and how does it fit in with my pain today??? So I looked it up ... Attunement is a form of energy medicine originally developed by Lloyd Arthur Meeker (1907 – 1954) and his colleagues. Meeker taught and practiced Attunement as a central feature of his spiritual teaching and ministry, Emissaries of Divine Light. Attunement is taught as a personal spiritual practice and as a healing modality offered through the hands. Emissaries of Divine Light believe that Attunement is a pivotal factor in the conscious
evolution of humanity.Like Qigong, Reiki and Therapeutic touch Attunement is a putative practice as defined by the United States National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), lacking published scientific study of its effectiveness. Attunement practitioners and clients rely on personal and anecdotal experience to confirm
ahhhhh ... is that what wanted to be known??? Pain leads to more awareness ... so that I can appreciate more ... what I feel ... what others feel??? I am feeling pain right now as Robin continues to hit against the window ... asking for support from other realms to keep her safe ... and at the same time asking for the important message she's clearly trying to give me, to be given to me in another fashion ... words would be good ... pictures would be good ... but I feel pain as Robin continues to hit the window pane ... Last time she visited ... she left blood splatter all over the windows ... it makes me sad ... I feel helpless ... and I feel frustrated that I cannot "get" the message she's been sent to deliver ... That which I thought I understood ... must not have been the message ... for she's back ... I feel so helpless and wish I could feel more so that I understand so that she can fly free again and just be a Robin ... plucking worms in the soggy grass after a night of rain ... it is downpouring right now again ... Please Robin ... fly away ... be with other Robins ... do Robin things ... I've already apologized to her the last time for past griefs I've felt ... (someone who was in my life used to shoot Robins off the deck railing "because they pooped on the railing") ... yes this makes me tear up again ... I'm sorry for your losses my dear Robin ... and Deva of Robins ... It still makes me sad ... for you ... and sometimes it just makes me feel helpless that shit like this is still going on ... that the humans are not yet more evolved ... and have stopped the destruction ... What can I be or do???
Is this the question? Am I the "feeler" of wrongs??? Pain is leading to awareness ... which is leading to appreciation ... and I am attuned to what others are feeling ... I feel it now ... And I am also aware that I no longer have to feel the pain of others ... that I can return it all to sender with love attached ... ♥
I hear the rain pouring down on the roof now ... it is much water, force-full in its pounding ... washing ... washing it all away ... I am ready to feel lighter again ... for it is Light that fills my body ... this I have been told by a channeler ... I have Light in my body ... and as such I am now aware of it ... I appreciate it ... and I will allow more attunement to "BEing in the Light" ... even more so than I have allowed ... since yesterday ...
BE the Love you wish to see ... BE the Change you wish to see in the world ... Will you join me?
I recently happened upon a new site … a link which lured me in … to explore
what he had to share … and so it was that I found this “About Chance” page and soooo felt like I was reading “about me” … here! read for yourself and see what I mean … I want to do and be more than I am.
I laugh easily and love deeply.
I’m not afraid to be vulnerable or transparent, in hopes that my success and defeats will help someone else
I notice things most people overlook.
I believe we’re here for something unique and specific, not just an ultimate
calling, but a daily something to do.
I’m on the lookout for tomorrow.
My truest passion is cultivating potential in others, to help them become who they were created to be.
I believe that’s why I’m here.”
Crazy Right??? I can totally relate!!!
:-) I would only add that I laugh loudly!!! … and I have no filter about worrying that others will hear me or how they will react to it …
I’m sooo feeling him right now … so I realize I want more … and I click on another post …
... He ate a bite of his sandwich and said, “I don’t think most people get this, and I learned it the hard way… Success and living a great life aren’t the same thing. You know? Success might hand you everything you ever thought you wanted … but nothing will keep you from your adventure more than chasing after comfort.
ahhh … now there’s a golden nugget if I’ve ever read one! I have been in networking opportunities where I have seen success … and heard stories of the “sacrifices” they say they experienced … that "I" also need to make in order to be successful … It’s sad … even if it’s short term … What are you willing to sacrifice??? For most of them who have reached the top level it was 2 years of sacrifices … but what if it takes a person longer than that??? Will their loved ones still be there? It was not pretty to see a father on stage … with his family … fumbling over his words and forgetting one of his daughters’ names … is that how I would like success to look like for me???
In all seriousness … is this something that I can see myself doing? … in order to “get ahead”? Sacrificing the time that I have with those that I love? Not in this lifetime!
“NEXT!” … Then months later, I read a blog … and give silent thanks for the validation I received in the message …
By now I’m intrigued … and want more of this guy … who is so insightful … it feels
like a part of me is writing this and I’m sooo hungry to read more … ... "Buddy, I didn’t know you in high school. I only see who you are and what you do today. And the guy standing in front of me is exceptional. Whatever mistakes you made back then … Whoever you were back then ... You’re not that guy anymore.”
They were simple words, but they seemed to come at the right time for him. He stood there stunned for a second, taking it in, trying to accept a thought he hadn’t truly considered for himself. And as he handed me my change, he looked me in the eyes and said, “Thank you. I really appreciate you saying that. I needed to hear it.”
I walked away half happy and half sad. And in the days since, that conversation
has got me thinking…
Why are we so brutal with ourselves?
Why do we nurse old failures like a wounded friend?
Why can we offer grace to a stranger, but not to ourselves?Why do we replay our mistakes over and over in our minds – tolerating, even
embracing the lies that form?
Can we even see the progress we’ve made, or are we so fixated on our shortcomings that we’re blind to it?
Yes ... it’s taken me most of this lifetime to break thru these limiting beliefs …knocking down a couple bricks at a time … testing … breathing … feeling better … opening myself to knocking a few more down … it also required separation from those who continually reminded of all those negative
recordings from the past … a negativity fast … or as I prefer to call it positivity binging! I love to explore … and smile with others … laughing loudly might also be included … if it just makes the day for one person … how can I be more of that???
Oh yes! How can I be more
of that for others???
OMGOODNESS! … I just embarked on a couple of new opportunities … since January 5th … not what I was expecting to show up in my life … having a limited belief
moment … LOL … thinking that it would be a certain way … then surprised by what showed up, yet still recognizing it for what it is … exactly what I had asked for … an opportunity … a Pre-Launch Opportunity! … keeping the faith that I was in the perfect place at the perfect time!
Another validation … **slaps hands on cheeks with mouth and eyes wide open!** ... Recently, I asked her if she could start over, knowing what she knows now, what would she do differently. She didn’t hesitate. She said, ”It’s easy. I’d run with those who get it, and ignore those who don’t.”
I can’t get those words out of my mind.
... then she said “Chance, I spent so much time and energy trying to convince people I wasn’t crazy. And I
spent as much time trying to convince myself I wasn’t crazy, even though they
thought I was. What I know now is if someone doesn’t offer you their support, it doesn’t automatically mean they don’t love you or want you to win. It just means they don’t get it yet. That’s about them – not about you. Some people won’t get it until you’ve done it. And many times, the people you most expect to be there for you just won’t be. Don’t take it personally, and don’t waste precious time and energy trying to convince them to get on board. They’re not meant to be part of your team. Move on. Find someone who gets it. Find your team. Pour into them, and let them pour into you. Run with those who get it.”
I have been there, done that … for most of the past few years … yes … I can relate
to what she said … and I find my life is now filled with more ease and grace … when I no longer worry about what people are thinking of me … or feeling the need to defend myself … I’ve found myself in all this … one thing they were absolutely correct about … it’s not a networking opportunity … it’s a personal growth opportunity … I am grateful for all that has been part of my journey … when I finally discerned what it is that I did not want … once all that had been erased … what I saw … are the dreams … crystal clear … **blissed out**
Sending Huge Love to All … I hope that thru my own trials that I may benefit others … where they are able to recognize the lies and limiting beliefs along the way …
clearing them out … so they can see their truth … and realize their dreams … supporting with love and compassion … yessss that is the way!
I encourage you to hop on over to see Chance Scoggins ... and I’ll be checking in over there myself … a wonderful site where I can hang out, fill my cup with bliss … and drink it all in … Bless you Chance! Give the man some love here at his site: http://www.chancescoggins.com
yes yes yes ... another day ... to do over again ... to be something/somebody new ... I am squeaking by keeping busy here ... maybe re-listening to Rikka again will be
something that plays in the background ... creating more shift ... it's a Tuesday ... as I listen for the Recycle garbage truck to arrive ... so I can run out to the warehouse and get him to stop by my car on the way out ... funny eh? but it's how I categorize the days in my week ...
Tuesdays the Recycle Guy comes to empty that dumpster
Thursdays the Garbage Guy comes to empty the garbage dumpster
Wednesdays, upon retiring ... I remember that the following morning I get to talk with Leta and Jackie on the phone ...
Then also by which of my fav shows are playing in the evenings and on which day ... funny the little routines we get into ... busy busy busy ... then reading all
the news about my biz ... not quite able to keep up with all the phone calls they have or the videos they post ... but eh? it's all good ... contributing to the well being of others ... whether it be a personalized note to them ... or an uplifting post that they comment on or share themselves ... tears while reading a post ... remembering how precious life is ... and reflecting on all that ...
pretty cool ... yeahhh it's another pretty cool day ... and it's Tuesday ... waiting ... and listening for the Recyling Guy to rumble up ...
Ya know ... there comes a time when something or someone causes you to re-evaluate things. I am just coming down from 3+ days of flu like symptoms. For two days though, I was pretty much out of it ... sleeping more than I was awake ... and awake does not necessarily mean conscious ... just eyes open and walking around state.
I have been thinking this ... but it was not until I received an email from a friend early this morning ... her words were "purging old conditioning" ...
**head tilted ... still thinking what this meant to me**
What showed up as flu like symptoms ... oh yes they were definitely real, no doubt about that ... but it took me to a higher level of understanding my intuition ... one that I had been questioning when even I didn't recognize I was questioning it. It is time for me to re-evaluate what I am doing, what I am taking, how I am eating, and who I am BEing. I began thinking about my products and what IS working for me and what is not. Even though the experts tout it to be the best thing since sliced bread, those that are not supporting me energetically, are on the "out" list. Not a conscious decision, but an energetic decision.
The eating part is easy, from now on I ingest whatever I feel like. It is just that easy. Whose bleepin old conditioning was it anyway that made me label a food good or bad, right or wrong?
I had the same conditioning about over the counter drugs ... I have been off them for over 10 years ... and I feel I personified a leader who used natural methods of getting thru symptoms. Well this current bout of symptoms shook my belief system. Was it necessary to feel this much pain as I broke through? What was this telling others? And how many can put up with so much pain? Why was I judging over the counter drugs? Here I felt I was upholding a "clean body" standard.
Somehow ... it is not a truth for me ... and thus I received this lesson to learn from.
It is about Judgment.
Judgment about how I perceived people on a certain product and yet I continued to take the product, seeing just as little effectiveness as everyone else I was judging.
Yeahhh ... WOW!!!
Judgment about certain foods. Yes certain foods cause distress in my body ... so the target now is to evaluate which foods make my body feel better and choose more of those than others. But if once in a while, I DID CHOOSE to eat that item, it will be done with the same love I feel when I eat my favorites. And I'm no longer going to buy into any cripe of what "experts" say. WOW! .... did I really write that???
OK now that I have my bravery hat on ... Let's continue ...
Who am I BEing? ... especially when I'm down and out flat on my back with fever, uncontrollable chills, coughing til retching, splitting headaches, unable to even sit up without swirling with vertigo ...
I have been stoic about not "showing my pain" as I never wished to be perceived as a whiner (yeahhhh ... another judgment) ... however, we as humans DO go through bouts of symptoms, and it is a pain in the ass to be in pain, EVEN when it is done in private. There are times when drastic measures are needed ... and this would be one of those instances! Next time! Symptoms Heed Warning ... I WILL BLAST YOU right outta here! I will arm myself with an arsenal you haven't ever seen in my household!
So in closing, I wish to leave you with this ... BE YOUR OWN ADVOCATE! Trust your body in all issues important to your health. Ask for its guidance. You already have everything you need.
with much Love,
PS. I just asked my body while standing in front of the cabinet with the supplements to take what it needed ... as I alternately held each bottle in my hands ... I cannot even begin to describe the "energized" and "warm feelings" that I immediately felt while doing this. Why couldn't you gain the benefits of the product energetically? What else is possible? Keep asking ...
In the vein of speaking my truth, I am going to write about something that has always been tabu ... I feel that having SHAME around this topic exhibits a very low energetic vibration ... and while talking with a friend recently she validated my feelings ... and it is time to break through ... **hearing glass break and crumble to the ground with an ear splitting crash!**
I was experiencing these feelings of shame by "hiding" ... that whole energy around "keeping it secret" is creating a ping pong effect on my vibration ... causing me to fall into that familiar feeling of dispair about "what to do next?" ... "what does my body wish to try next?" ... "what is it right about this that I'm not getting?"
Then I climb back up from that ... knowing my knowing ... that all is already perfect as it is ... loving myself completely ... every aspect of me ... encouraging myself to keep going ... I'm on the path that I chose to be on ... It's all good ... and all is perfect ...
I will reveal something now ... being totally open without shame ... no more hinting around the numbers ... and talk about the numbers on the scale ... We are all one ... and by speaking my truth, I am leading by example ... and there will more who will follow my lead ... being fearful no more ...
I have worked with many healers, doctors, and many others to release some of this weight over the course of a decade ... I weigh 271 pounds on a digital scale ... there! I've said it ... and I'm still alive ... "What's right about this that I'm not getting?" ... OK ... so I don't have to know everything all the time? Nope! It just is what it is ... and I'm just filled with gratitude ... to be here now ... to be the facilitator of change that I am ... to assist healing all ... being One with all ...
What are you willing to be or do to align with your true passion? What would it take? Are you willing to step up today? What can I be or do to support you?
How does it get any more incredible than this? I don't know ... but I'm already registered for more!
with much Love,
Always Do Your Best. Surrender and Let Go of the Past.
Whatever life takes away from you, let it go. When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment. Letting go of the past means that you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now.
It's been interesting so far ... in these first few days, when I stepped on the scale, the numbers climbed up ... and at the same time, the waist band of my jeans kept riding lower than normal and they felt baggy in the butt ... **shrug** I have no idea what was happening ...
Today's number on the scale shows that it is coming down again.
What I AM noticing is how good I feel ... and that when I want something sweet ... it's only a few bites ... it now satisfies ... WOW ... never thought I'd say that!
I am finding that I go - go - go ... before I realize that I'm hungry and that hours have gone by ... how liberating ...
Today is turning out to be another great day! It's almost 9am ... :-) ready for a cuppa tea now ...
I'll keep ya posted
with much Love,
I have found thru trial and error … well mostly error … that I just cannot eat enough in the day to supplement my body with those things that nourish it … for instance antioxidants … it takes 15 pounds of blueberries … or 30 oranges … or 6 bottles of red wine to get enough antioxidants to really make a difference in reducing the stress in the body from free radicals … That’s a lot of food to consume … besides the fact I'd be really drunk! ... and not all of it will be absorbed … think about how many days I could do this before I am chained to the bathroom … just not practical in the life of today’s woman on the go!
This is why I choose to take supplements … to enhance and supplement the nutrients in the organic foods that I do ingest. It’s just that simple! I ask my body what it needs … muscle test if you will … as I continue to seek all that which will enhance my body, wellbeing … and that of my loved ones.
I am amazed how it continues to “ramp up” … and DOES continue to get better and better … What else is possible now that we see the infiniteness that we are?
in Joy-filled Love,
