These times have very wild implications beyond what I have ever lived. I have always been one to taut prevention, living with the earth, realizing we are creatures of it and investigating old and new ways of health and beauty. I have been an advocate for organic, local and green living to support our communities as well as our well being. Connection to others important as is the joy of living on the planet that I consider the Garden of Eden.
With the illness so prevalent, the different ways to keep health optimal, the restrictions being imposed, I find the things I have always shared more important than ever. I became organic with flowers and food, supported local farms and businesses my whole life, tried to keep my waste to the least and use things with consciousness. Today as things stand, knowing the local food producers and the local healers is important for health and beauty. Living sustainably for health and resources seems smart. Prevention the name of the game! I am not in favor of many of the latest health and wellness claims so I am sharing the ways I think are the best, easy health and happiness options. Despite current conditions I am thriving and want to share ideas of how.
Purchase from local farms and food sources where you can. If we could shift our food distribution to more local sources , less concern for gas, shipping, availability, cyber attacks, all this could support us to still get the necessities. Yes, it is a high goal but moving toward that is a good choice. The food is fresher, healthier and you support your community to have a closer loop. I know out here there are moves in farming and permaculture that in the future could support a more closed loop society as far as food and healing elixirs is concerned. Eating by the seasons is healthful for us and small choices to make these things work in the right direction can help the world in the future so I advocate such. You feel good as well seeing the farms about that you actually get your food from.
Sustainability seems important as well for if there are shifts in distribution, you want to know you have your supplies. That is why the Kangen water is a key to my life. I get the best drinking water no matter what comes out of the tap. Filters and my ionizer create the best molecular hydrogen water that is the number one anti-oxident today. Simply hydrating with the right stuff goes a long way to health and longevity. Acidic bodies are shifted with ionized water as are many health ails all listed in study after study on pub med. Look up ERW, Electrically Reduced Water or Molecular Hydrogen water there.
Chemical free living is another thing that I support. So many have allergies to food, chemicals, pollen in the air, there are so many more pollutants than when I grew up especially in food. Little bits of cancer causing agents in our lotions, laundry soap, personal care products all effect us over time. Long ago I learned personal care products are unregulated and filled with many unhealthy perservatives to be on shelves. Food has many antibiotics, gmo, unhealthy fat replacements, all take a toll on our bodies over the years. Buying local and not factory farming helps as does using safer products.
Our Kangen Water machine offers the most sustainable living I have encountered. I used to purchase safer products from the better grocery stores where they already weeded out high perservatives which worked. However, since I got the Kangen, I have replaced 95% of all personal care, cleaning and house hold products. I save so much money as I clean, do laundry, clear stains, wash veggies, remove makeup, support good teeth, softer skin, healed excema, heal cuts. burns, lost weight, the list is endless. 64 uses at least as we say for these different types of water. It is amazing and I don't run out of things for it is there in my kitchen.
All about me is chemical free. This supports immunity and the innate healing system we are all born with. Give it what it needs, support with healthy choices and your have simple health. Our 2.5pH Hypochlorous Acid is the best sanitizer that exists, 100x more powerful than bleach. Used in hospitals, dentists offices and nursing homes as safe and it is electric salt water. I can disinfect where ever I go with no chemicals. This is powerful especially now.
Go in nature and re-center! With the high stress of the news, riots, protests, illness, lockdown, masks, nature fires and floods, it is healthy to step away. I know of no better way than to go hike, paddle, swim, lay on the grass. We are creatures of nature and considered the animal kingdom. This step away from techno spaces is healing to us on the cellular level, emotional level and to calm the ramble brain. It also brings in our spiritual nature of gratitude and beauty just being outside, receiving of the world. Health and sustainability at its finest by just walking outside.
Stay connected to high vibe communities. What ever that means to you find them. Be in person, online, facetime, zoom, whatever it takes. This is your life line to have inspired, forward moving and thinking others around. I have many great free thinking communities that expand me, inspire me, lift me and create laughter and joy for me daily. This happy attitude is one of the best medicines. I don't subscribe to not being together or touching each other either. I get lots of health treatments of self care that keep me calm, clear and level in these times. Touch and connection a powerful tool in good living.
Work at things that give you joy! I changed my life out here in Colorado and I upgraded to loving all I do. I have always been on some mission to educate and inform and I still am. I investigate the healing arts, the expressive arts and elixirs that serve me to beauty and health and share that with others. It is vital that you love your work and many shifted that in the illness crisis of 2020. I love what I do and I inspire you to find ways to love what you do too. I support others to find this joy as well!
Blessings to us all as we ride through creating a new world out of some really crazy stuff going on. Joy is always around. Be a herald of it! Great love to you all!
I live in the magic of life! It is actually quite simple. You must develop the awareness too. I have issues that are a bit overwhelming at times. I am facing my triggers, out dated beliefs about life and managing crisis out of no where! Yet magic and happiness are attitudes toward life I cultivate through presence.
Blessed I have been to learn from Himalayan Masters and in a strong school of spirituality to give me tools to detach and redirect quickly. It is an awareness that takes practice, learning and expansion. Nothing ever works every time so we all keep learning new ways to adjust to a shifting world. We are on a moving planet so there is no static arrival or landing for very long. We ride the wave of joy when it is here and savor. We equally ride the wave of negativity too. The magic begins when you realize it is a ride. We don't hang at red lights or stop signs. We take the rest or revel in the joy. We know it shifts and keep going on the train.
Magic comes into life as we remember it is always moving. No matter what occurs usually, in 2 weeks you won't remember it much for you'll have more joy or strife that will take the stage. I set myself up knowing all is passing through and by. When you begin here, then a ride, a wave, a period of this or that is inevitable. Once that is your base remembrance, then it becomes how will you ride through?
One of my greatest keys is to find the beauty around me in all circumstances. That resets me into a good moment no matter what is happening. The other day I was feeling down and as I stepped out to my porch and there were 10 gardenia blooms! That surged me into a new state. Suddenly the world had blessing and intoxicating scent. I then reveled in that for as long as I could. All changed in that moment as I allowed the movement to pass into something else. That is how presence supports us to redirect. My mood elevated. Then the world looked differently. Things change through perspective not through the reality changing. Our way we address it changes.
As we learn this way of moving through, magic seems to come in. I find serendipity, synchronicity and coincidence occur when I am moving through things. The mind often wants to keep us in a loop. Not matter what is going on in real time, the mind is stuck at a stop sign creating tale upon tale. When we realize the way out of that is to find the beauty around you, the loop gets disrupted.
It happened to me again this morning. I was in a bit of fear or lack mentality as I drove to the chiropractor. I kept trying to shift on my way yet wasn't doing it completely although I was becoming more neutral. I got there and suddenly an old friend was outside the door. The joy of seeing him, the hug, quick chat and fullness he was feeling just jumped inside of me. I was no longer considering what I had been thinking or feeling all morning. I received of that blessing and suddenly lack had left. it was like a gift of reset beyond myself in magic. The whole small visit brought in so many others ideas, feelings and optimism. There I had allowed the movement to bring me to a new state. It changed me for the day.
I returned home and an opportunity to help another came in which felt empowering. I still have what issues where here in the morning but now I have a more open optimistic attitude and lack is no where to be found. I feel happy about both interactions, continue moving through my day present to what is before me and I am long past that stop sign of thinking.
This is the Magic of Life! Really seeing the beauty, which nature often offers in a moment. Letting that beauty do something inside of me, I take the moment to receive it...... Then the movement, the energy flows you forward on to the next. I allow it to. I don't allow my mind to redirect back. If it does, I try it again and again. The magic will come in and work with you if you look for it. It is the path that brings me into great joy most days even in bad scenes.
I offer this as a way to support you to embody the magic. Embody means not in the mind which is where the red light and stop signs are. You are moving and experiencing all around you from the body and often the mind is not aware as it is in its story. The magic is in the body perception and the letting go of the mind. This easily brings you to new ways and magical happenings. The world is here to support you to become your best! You have to look, be aware, pay attention and know your mind is just a tool and perspective. There are many ways to see and do things. As we say, There are many ways to do the dishes. Open to the world around you! Don't hold onto negativity too long.
