We Are Surrounded by Information, But We’re Not Aware of Most It

We Are Surrounded by Information, But We’re Not Aware of Most It

 

We are literally surrounded by information – everywhere we go and in everything we do. Some of it is obvious to us:

 

  • On our phones and online we are bombarded with messages, ads, invitations and suggestions daily

 

  • We read hardcopy (books, billboards, instructions)

 

  • We observe others’ behavior relative to our own (e.g.how fast the other cars around us are traveling on the freeway vs. how fast our car is traveling)

 

  • We can observe things around us (nature, behavior, activities, politics)

 

  • We can notice things happening within us or to those we care about (aches, pain, bodily functions, emotional shifts)

 

  • We can hear and sense things changing (creaks, shifts, motion)

 

These are only a limited sphere of observations, limited by our senses, by what we’ve been taught to notice, and by our own experiences.

 

There’s a whole world of information that we haven’t been taught to notice – that can help us better navigate our lives here on earth.

 

This month I’m inviting you to delve deeper into what we haven’t been taught to notice. Information that is essential for each of us, that we can use daily.

How affirmations can change your life

How affirmations can change your life

 

There are always things in life we want to change: how we look, how we feel, difficult relationships or situations we find ourselves in, where we work, where we live… and countless other issues. Sometimes we know exactly how to make the changes, and in other situations, we just don’t know what to do.

As a young single mother, I struggled going to a prestigious graduate school and raising a preschooler. I felt as though I hadn’t been prepared for the life I was living. People always asked me how I was able to do everything I did. My answer was: “Necessity is the Mother of Invention.” 

I really learned the meaning of that phrase. It was a guiding principle for me in those days. I felt that completing graduate school and getting a good job was a necessity so that I could provide adequately for my child. Because I wouldn’t settle for less I was determined to juggle the many facets of my life so that I could succeed. Sometimes I had to be very creative. Fortunately, I had plenty of ingenuity.

Years later when I was having very different problems as my children were older, I reminded myself that I had been through much more difficult problems and had survived. “You can do this!” I reminded myself every time I wondered whether I could, in fact, do what I needed to do. 

Even today when I remind myself by saying “You can do this!” or say it to others, I realize how powerful that statement is for me.

“You can do this!” is an affirmation. For me, the subtext is always you’ve done so many harder things in life you can certainly do this.

I still say it to myself on the rare occasions that I feel doubt or wonder about my capabilities.

That was my first experience in creating an affirmation for myself. I didn’t realize that it was an affirmation or how powerful it was until I looked back years later and saw the courage that four simple words could evoke in me. 

The proverb “Necessity is the Mother of Invention” can be turned into other affirmations as well: 

  • “I am creative.” 
  • “I can turn lemons into lemonade.” 
  • “I can respond to whatever life sends my way with ingenuity.” 
  • “I can see the silver lining in this situation and I can make the most of it.”

Affirmations can open your awareness to new possibilities. When you’re feeling stuck this can be vital. 

  • Where are you feeling stuck?
  • What are the things in your life that you would like to change? 
  • Which ones are challenging? 
  • Which ones do you wish for help with?

If you would like to know more about how affirmations can help you to make changes in your life, please join me for my free online workshop on Tuesday, October 25th at 5 pm Pacific / 8 pm Eastern. It’s called Affirmations: Create the Life You Want With Your Self-Talk.

Intuitive Help with Important Decisions

Intuitive Help with Important Decisions

You’ve probably had experiences in life where you sensed that you were getting important guidance that came from outside of you, that was important to a situation or decision you were faced with.

Here are two examples of experiences I’ve had where I received guidance with important decisions:

I remember when I was trying to decide where to go to college – a big decision for a teenager. I visited several of the schools I had applied to and just wasn’t sure which one was the right one for me. I thought I knew what I wanted in a college, but when I visited they just didn’t feel right.

Then I visited two schools in another part of the U.S. At the first one, it was so clear to me that this was the right place. Even though I’d never been to that city before and knew no one who lived there, it felt like home. Everything was right and it felt right to me. When I found out that I had been accepted at that school during the visit, I was thrilled and made my decision to go to college there – one I’ve never regretted.

More than twenty years later I was offered a job that I thought I wanted, but when I received the offer I had a strong feeling that I shouldn’t accept it. They were offering good money, it was a well-known, well-respected company, and I didn’t have a better option, but something said “don’t take this job”. I didn’t know what to do. I pondered my predicament for several days and ultimately followed my intuition and turned down the job offer.

Nine months later I was working at a different company and interviewed a person who had worked for the company I turned down in a similar role to the one I was offered. I was curious about what it was like to work there at the time that I was offered the job there. The person I interviewed was very candid. He said that it was a horrible work environment: very high stress, lots of difficult situations, and managers and co-workers who were very difficult to work with. I discovered why I had been encouraged not to accept the job. I was amazed and very grateful for the guidance.

Have you had similar experiences?

  • You received guidance in making an important decision.
  • You had a nagging feeling that you should or should not do something.
  • You saw a particular outcome that informed a decision you made.

Easter Egg colored juices make you beautiful from the inside out!

Easter Egg colored juices make you beautiful from the inside out!

This blog has been re-posted with the permission of Sally Miller, B.S., N. E.  /// eatsofeden.com

When I look at juices and smoothies, I think of colored Easter eggs. I loved the tradition of coloring eggs with my children. Initially, the dying was done with food-coloring tablets and then later on with natural foods. I used these for my dyes:

*yellow onion skins—yellow to dark orange
*orange peels—pale yellow-orange
*red beets—pink to red
*red cabbage—blue
*spinach—green
*grape juice—violet
*raspberries—pink to purple
*yellow or green apple peels—yellow-green
*bright yellow—turmeric
*deeper red—chili powder

All of these natural foods with their colorful antioxidants can make Easter eggs beautiful. They can also make you beautiful from the inside out.

The colors that you see in these vegetable and fruit juices are from the antioxidants that are present in them. Antioxidants bring new life to the cells of your body.

The symbolism of the Easter eggs, according to Wikipedia, is based on early Christian beliefs.

“Easter eggs, also called Paschal eggs, are decorated eggs that are usually used as gifts at the occasion of Easter. As such, Easter eggs are common during the season of Eastertide (Easter season). The oldest tradition is to use dyed and painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs wrapped in colorful foil, hand-carved wooden eggs or plastic eggs filled with confectionery such as chocolate. Although eggs, in general, were a traditional symbol of fertility and rebirth in Christianity, Easter eggs symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus, from which Jesus resurrected.”

As we move into spring, there are many symbols of rebirth that we are about to experience.

Presenting you with these beautiful juice recipes as we enter into the season of growth for fresh fruits and vegetables will help you renew your health, as well as your spirit. It was an easy connection for me.

“Fresh fruits and vegetables in their juiced form provide the body with a chance to renew itself,” said holistic health expert Ed Bauman. “Raw juices are pure liquids locked in the cells of plants that have definite therapeutic value. Just as herbs have specific curative values, so do the plant’s juices that have come from specific fresh fruits and vegetables. Vegetable juices are the regenerators and builders of the body. Fresh fruits are the cleansers of the human system. Grown in healthy soil, they contain all the substances needed for nourishing the body—provided the produce used is fresh and raw and without preservatives or pesticides.”

When vegetables and fruits have been naturally cooked or ripened by the sun, the elements of the earth are buried deep within their fibers. They are assimilated quickly into the bloodstream and glands within 15 minutes of ingestion. A pint or more of fresh raw fruit or vegetable juice daily will have a marked therapeutic effect.

Research consistently shows that people who eat the greatest quantity of fruits and vegetables are about half as likely to develop cancer as those who eat little or no fresh fruits and vegetables.

It is not surprising that the United States Cancer Institute recommends eating five servings of fresh vegetables and three servings of fresh fruit each day.

The phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables hold the keys to preventing many modern diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, as well as debilitating conditions, such as asthma, arthritis and allergies.

Still, even the most disciplined person can find it difficult to eat all those fruits and vegetables each day. Drinking them in the form of fresh juices, smoothies and frozen treats are an easy and delicious way to ensure you are getting your daily eight.

Juicing requires that fruits or vegetables be squeezed or shredded and spun using a machine to separate liquids from solids. Usually, the pulp is recycled into soups or stews or composted.

Blending requires a food processor or a blender. The whole fruit or vegetable is pitted, peeled and cut into smaller pieces before being combined with other ingredients for a blended drink with the pulp. The blender blades chop the flesh of fruits and vegetables and then liquefy the solids, making them drinkable.

Our cells consist mostly of water, which is essential to their proper function. Raw juice supplies the water you need to replenish lost fluid, while providing all the necessary vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytochemicals.

Juices also promote the alkalinity of body fluids, which is vital for proper immune and metabolic function. Removing the fiber allows the nutrients to be absorbed very quickly—usually within 15 minutes.

I recommend the Omega Nutrition System low-speed horizontal juicers for all types of juicing, including wheatgrass.

Fruit and vegetable fiber contains cellulose, pectin, lignin and hemicellulose—all of which are essential to health. Combined, these types of fiber slow absorption of food (increasing absorption of nutrients), help lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease, help eliminate toxins and gallstones, and prevent elimination problems.

When fruits and vegetables are blended, their fiber is retained, and nutrients are absorbed more slowly than in the juiced version.

I recommend the Vitamix Vita-Prep (commercial Vitamix option) or the Blendtec for blending.

Combining both smoothies and juice in your weekly, if not daily, routines is one of the best decisions you can make for your renewed life.

Diabetics maintain blood sugar levels better by either juicing or blending vegetables with minimal sweet fruits. Carrots and beets should also be minimized because of their sugar content.

I teach a Juicing and Blending class periodically. Check my list of workshops and classes on this website to see when the next class will be offered.
