Inch by Inch, Row by Row

Our garden, and all of Nature really; is one of the greatest teachers. She is always teaching about patience, humility, loving-kindness, self-awareness, sacrifice, truth, non-attachment, gentleness, and so many other wonderful things. What I am l learning from our garden, I simply missed out on during many years of the kind of education requiring tests and textbooks. This education is for life!!! 

Inch by inch, row by row; God bless these seeds I sow.

Those seeds that I sow in the garden of life exist on many different levels. First there is the physical level, the actual seeds which hopefully grow into the vegetables that we eat with gratitude and love and feed our family all summer long. Next there are the emotional seeds, the feelings which I choose to feel, feed, hold onto, prune, or let go of. Gotta pull those pesky weeds. I always have the power of choice……Then there are the thought seeds….. those affirmations in thought or prayer which co-create with intention not only how I perceive the world, but also have the power to change the fabric of the REALITY I live in for better or worse.

The first year we made all the rookie mistakes. Like needing to pot mint, and we are still learning from this three years later as you can see in the above picture! This year; our garden has taught me the importance of timing, neglect, and acceptance. With a busier schedule than usual, and travel; we have missed out on harvesting a few things that went past their “time”. They are feeding the smaller creatures, and eventually will go back to mother earth to be re-created again. We had two tomato plants which simply grew at random due to our use of compost. First, my husband wanted to pull them thinking they were weeds. Then, as they have grown HUGE I have not properly cared for them with the “climbers” they needed to thrive. And I don’t know about you, but I would much rather “thrive” than simply survive.

Am I willing to admit what I may be neglecting  in my life? And, am I also willing to simplify my life by letting things go when the plate is getting too full to properly care for and give everything the attention it deserves? Energy flows where attention goes. In the garden of life energy FLOWING is a beautiful thing. Now; balancing it, directing it, and mastering it…. that’s another post!

Oh yeah, and not being attached to the FRUITS of our labor!

Letting Go of Expectations

I am giving myself permission to expand, and delve into some topics that have been on my mind & heart. This is supposed to be about Soul nutrition, & that goes way beyond FOOD, although food is still one of my favorite topics.  There will continue to be recipes, tips, etc. coming your way. I simply want to open the heart of this blog, & make more space for That which wants to be expressed to come forth and share the energy of LOVE, PEACE, & JOY,  that is our true nature. 

Sometimes we get so involved in making our plans & having expectations that we forget that we are not the One driving the bus. We may not be able to see the whole picture & why something may seem to be taking so long, suddenly change directions, or no longer work when we least expect it. Because there is a greater Whole that is being served, it’s not always for me to know how the pieces of the cosmic puzzle fit together even though I can get bent on figuring it all out! We are Human-iversal, & that means accepting our role without always understanding all the other roles. I feel like Spirit/God/Goddess (whatever name you are comfortable with) has been reminding me lately to take a seat and enjoy the ride rather than trying to make such an effort. I used to set incredibly high expectations for myself, & for others & this often resulted in disappointment & unrealistic perfectionism.  I was 90% self- effort, & 10% trust in the universe, when it came to allowing things to unfold and accepting them as they are. There was also a tremendous waste of energy trying to force things to go a certain way. Then I went through a time where I wondered whether it was human to have ANY expectations at all. I mean, was it okay to expect anything of anybody I was in relationships with? If someone said they would do something, was it wrong to expect they would?

Awhile later, I decided maybe I could try putting forth 10% self effort & 90% trust in the universe. Easier said than done. I came to realize that some expectations were a necessity to human relationships, the key in my experience was in the attachment to the results. I am discovering little by little being at peace is more important to me than being right.  Anotherwards, I have to let go, forgive, & not give away my serenity when an expectation isn’t met.  Letting go, forgiveness, & unconditional love seem to be important for this process. I’m still going through this process, and it is moving along at roughly a snails pace. But I am seeing progress, not only in myself, but in my family, friends, & globally which gives me hope.

I am going to keep my expectations low, & my acceptance high for now. I’m happy and content with the progress to 75% trust, 25% self effort on a good day. I’ll let you know how that goes.  If you feel afraid of going in a new direction, or letting a system or relationship that is no longer working end, or stepping up when you want to shrink back, feel the fear and go on and do it anyway!!

Om Shanti (Peace), Prema (Love), & Bliss (Ananda) to All……

The Six Liquids of Vitality- Blue Green Violet Prism Water

Do you want to step into the next level with your health and well being? Blue Green Violet Prism Water is one of the six liquids of vitality &  I have been experimenting with it for several years to bring my body back into a more alkaline state, boost my immune system, & restore a healthy balance. I make this amazingly special water that I liken to rocket fuel for the body & mind & I’m so excited to share it with you! 

There are two ingredients; the first being filtered, living, mineralized water. This is important because the water is your base, so use the highest quality, filtered water you can. The second is Klamath Blue Green algae powder. This algae is a superfood, and a wild nutrient dense supplement with over 60% bioavailable micro protien, and a good source of Vit A and Vit B12. You can find it on the internet, or sometimes in a health food store. The powder needs to be stored in the freezer to preserve it best.  It is harvested just once per year from the Klamath Lake in Oregon, and thought by some to be the only living superfood produced in the U.S.A.  It is wildcrafted, and then dehydrated into a powder to preserve its sensitive micronutrients. It is incredible for the immune system, and a great detoxifier. Once you grow the algae for a day or so, you will have a water that vibrates to the blue green violet frequency. What does all that mean? Feel better, think more clearly, and have a VERY HIGH VIBE!!

Blue Green Violet Prism Water Concentrate

1.) Start with anywhere between a liter to a half gallon of pure water, and use glass to store the water in.

2.) Using a wooden, bamboo or other natural spoon, add between 1 tsp- 1tbsp Klamath blue green algae powder to the water, stirring vigorously in both directions. I wouldn’t use more than one heaping tbsp.

3.) Store in the fridge for 24 hrs. The water should be a nice lighter ocean blue/teal on top, with a few inches of green/cloudy/darker on the bottom.  Now you have a concentrate to last a few days.

4.) To make one serving, add 1/4 algae water to a glass 3/4 full of water and you should have a nice light blue water. Enjoy.

5.) Drink immediately.  At room temp, the algae will start to die off, and it will smell really bad so you need to drink right away. Also, do not drink the bottom few inches of the concentrate (the darker/particulate part).

The Earth provides everything we need to nourish our bodies so beautifully!!

Blessings for your perfect health dear souls!

Good Vibes For Eternity,

The Six Liquids of Vitality

What is the difference between try and triumph?  A little umphh!!!  Staying determined to keep climbing the ladder of vitality in a world that is polluted & an elite 1% seek to control & suffer the other 99%’s food chain, destroy the planet’s ecological balance, & horde resources  is no easy feat. I feel like I have been beating this drum for years, & now how joyous the world is awakening & Occupy Wall Street is bringing much needed demonstration to the Truth that WE have had enough!! The journey to a juicy purpose-filled life has not been fast or easy, but it IS possible. There are ways to sidestep the nutrition traps, & take care of yourself from the inside out. I get an image of a lotus when I think about this b/c the lotus grows so beautifully, even though it’s environment is the mud pond!  One step at a time. We will prevail and have more vitality, abundance, & happiness than we can yet dream of my beloved brothers and sisters!

I feel inspired to share the wisdom of Dr. Cassar of ESP (Earth Shift Products). I have watched many of his video’s recently, & he is confirming, encouraging, intelligent balanced with intuition & his own experience, & sharing some fantastic tools and ideas about vitality.

 I started on the SAD (standard american diet) & had many dis-eases to show for it, then slowly over the last eight years woke up & found the way to higher states of health. Mentors and teachers have played an important role in guiding me gently along. Dr. Cassar is the latest- he is a spiritualist, toxicologist & chiropractor from Hawaii, & I just can’t put into words how genius I think he is on so many levels!!

So that little umph I mentioned can be assisted with the Six Liquids of Vitality. A kind of rocket fuel for the golden age when it comes to feeding the body, mind, & spirit. Not only do they super boost the immune system, but they are detoxifiers, intestinal cleansers, plaque dissolvers, & purifiers. They are food for the brain! They are like supercharged elixer’s for vitality & longevity & they are pretty simple to make. They help you attract, store, & radiate high vibrational energy. I was so excited because I had already intuitively been led to a few of them, & some were an opportunity to take things to whole new level! 

So stay tuned because the next several posts will be dedicated to these 6 incredible liquids, and I will try and share one a week with you all! So get ready to drink to your highest health, happiness, & holiness!

Here is the link to Dr. Cassar’s you tube video that gives a fantastic overview of the six liquids. I will go into more details & share pictures of my home made tonics and my experiences with them in the coming weeks!!

All the light, strength & power of the sun & the loving coolness of the moon are yours because they are inside you! You are a Being of Divine Perfection! Cheers to your highest health!! Blessed Be!

Fondness for Freedom….Cake

I am mildly obsessed with freedom. It’s one of my favorite words.  A freedom-full life is one of the most appealing, joy producing, juicy, invigorating, energizing, expansive, ideas in the universe to me! So last year, when I couldn’t think what in the world to make on July 4, I started this tradition I call “Freedom Cake”.  This is no ordinary cake, even though I know it appears that way. I make it thinking and feeling all of the things I would like to experience freedom around during that time.  It symbolizes the very idea of freedom!

What does freedom mean to you? What does it look like? What would you like to be free from? 

Freedom from fear? Freedom from limiting beliefs? Freedom from negative thought patterns? Freedom to be wild? Freedom to express authentic emotions? Freedom from guilt? Freedom from depression? Freedom to do and be what you want when you want to? Freedom to act like a child anytime and not be punished? Freedom to go as fast or as slow as you like on your life’s journey? Freedom to have access to pure food and water, shelter, healthcare, & education? Freedom from fear mongering? Freedom to be wholly yourself without being pushed, dominated, or forced into trying to Be more? Freedom from addictions? Freedom from being addicted to your emotions? Freedom to travel anywhere you want at the speed of thought? Freedom from judgement? Freedom from people pleasing? Freedom from feeling not good enough? Freedom from self-doubt? Freedom to love whoever you want whenever you want, however you want? Freedom from the need to control? Freedom from the desire to be right? Freedom from sloth, pride, greed, anger, envy, lust? Freedom from the thought that you are separate, better or worse than any other Being?

Physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually we can search for or experience freedom. Freedom occurs on many levels & they all ROCK THE HOUSE! So whatever freedom is to you; you are amazing, you are so deserving and totally worth it!

This years  annual freedom cake tasted especially sweet. All those strawberries & blueberries exploding like little red and blue fireworks in our mouths. Nectarean, creamy, milky, bliss in the form of white fluffy scratch made whipped cream. Deliciously moist, rich, crumbly, & heavy vanilla pound cake….. Mmmmmmmm. Free. (from guilt!!!!)

Conscious Eating- How to Get Started……

Do we know what’s in our food? Do we care what’s in our food? Is what we eat contributing to our sense of well being? Are our energetic needs being met, & do we feel satisfaction with the state of health of our bodies? Do we enjoy nourishing ourselves in a non-addictive, healthy balanced way?  Do we have dis-eases that are the result of eating “dead” food, polluted food, contaminated water, or eating in non-serving ways?  

I believe we are what we eat; and I want to share the things I did when I awakened into conscious eating getting started on my spiritual nutrition journey.

1.) I realized it was going to take a commitment to an overall “shift” in lifestyle to attain the goals, feelings, body, and state of health I desired.  Nothing “quick fix oriented” was going to work even though my western mind hoped that would be the case. I had to be willing to do the work to change my whole way of eating and living to produce lasting change, satisfaction, & the kind of vibrancy I was seeking.

2.) Get rid of the microwave. The microwave is extremely dangerous for your health, and causes all kinds of cancers. When you eat food that has been heated in a microwave, you are eating “dead” food. The microwaves kill anything living, all the enzymes, every beneficial nutrient in your food. No exceptions.  Say goodbye to all frozen TV dinner style meals- they will do nothing except rob you of your health & vitality no matter what Jenny Craig says or Lean Cuisine says.

3.) Open your fridge & take stock. Any labels that have more than a handful of ingredients or anything you need a degree to understand, is probably devastating to your health. Look for things like colors and numbers together (food dyes),

4.) Beware of artificial sweetners- they are hazardous to your health. High fructose corn syrup destroy’s health. They keep trying to rename the stuff so that we will buy an old dog dressed up in a new suit. Also try and eliminate white (bleached) sugar.  Please do your own research. Do not simply take my word for it. There

is plenty of material out there that explores the consequences and reasons why artificial sweetners such as aspartame and splenda are not health foods. Yes, that means diet soda pop & all sorts of different processed foods. You can replace the above with raw honey, raw agave syrup,  maple syrup, or stevia. These are more natural alternatives which won’t destroy your health in reasonable quantities. All your baked goods can be made substituting these items for the other stuff, & they are great in everything; even smoothies!

5.) Open your pantry and take stock. All those boxes of processed foods: cereal, cakes, cookies, donuts, sweets, snacks, pretzels, are almost all laden with preservatives, additives, GMO’s, (genetically modified ingredients), high fructose corn syrup, dyes, MSG, & harmful chemicals making them “dead food” in that they don’t contribute to your health in any way.  There are zero nutrients in them. Sugar, salt, & fat along with above said toxins send your body into the “craving” state trying to adjust to the fact they are foreign to the body’s natural state of perfection. This addicts you to these foods with your brain thinking you need more and more. Search and eliminate!!!

6.) Withdraw your support from fast food chains. All of this food, is “dead” food. There is nothing in it that will nourish you into a state of health whatsoever. Your body goes into a state of shock every time you eat this stuff. You are eating the “thought forms” of who packages, cooks, and handles your food.  This may lead to many disturbances in your mind and emotions. The food has no love in it, as it is produced only with $$ (profit) in mind. So it is with all restaurants. So, try cutting down on all eating out. Eat at home either preparing the food yourself, or eat what is prepared by someone with love who loves YOU.

6.) Understand that you will experience a “detox” if you are used to eating in non serving ways. Your body, in it’s infinate wisdom will work to heal, cleanse, and respond by going to work rapidly ridding your body of all it’s toxins as you begin to make changes. In just three days, your body can do an incredible amount of healing and regeneration on the cellular level. Your digestive system might experience issues. You may have energy fluctuations, headaches, diarrhea, colds/flu like symptoms, strange tastes like metals in your mouth, etc. Do not be frightened by this. It is simply your body “detoxing” and will pass! Cravings shall pass. This too shall pass……

7.) Go organic!!! GO ORGANIC!!! GO ORGANIC!!  Even more ideal is local & organic. As often as possible, replace conventional fruits & vegetables with organics and look for local

Official seal of the National Organic Program
fruits and vegetables as often as possible. The reason the conventional fruits and veggies less than ideal is because they contain a huge amount of chemicals- insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, and so on. The food with the very highest of all vibration is that which is grown, cared for, loved, and eaten by the ones growing it. Makes sense doesn’t it? Hmmmmm….  It is like pouring God into GOd.

8.)  If you are a meat eater, consider consuming less meat.  Consider eliminating meat from your diet, even if it’s a certain number of meals/ per week. Meat includes beef, poultry, wild game, pork, fish, &

seafood. It is toxic, regardless of the source- land or sea.  One of the biggest issues with meat is the effects of the growth hormones and antibiotics being given to all the factory farmed animals. This is extremely concerning and has vast consequences on our health and our children’s health. Watch Food Inc. & it may change your perspective.  I could devote several posts just to this one issue which would solve so many of our worlds problems, but I’ll keep moving on……

9.) Drink plenty of purified, filtered, or natural spring water (half your weight in oz/ per day, or at least 6-8 glasses). So many of us are drinking contaminated water and don’t even realize it. This is actually a HUGE step on the journey to Conscious Nutrition and will do things for your health you never imagined possible.  Read my post about the Roxtract filtration system and how this living water changed my life!

WHAT ABOUT THE COST? I hear this obstacle often, how expensive the healthy and organic food is, and you know what -you are right. It’s complete lunacy that we should be paying more to purchase and eat food that has NOT been adulterated, sprayed with expensive food killing chemicals, added to, or processed.   However my inner being encourages me to recognize that I can either pay more for my food now, or pay later in the form of illness, dis-ease and medical treatment….. One of my goals is assuring my own highest level of health.  The solution to this one  begins with US and our POWER TO CHOOSE what we give our energy and support to.  If we endeavor to make changes, the ones attempting to control the landscape of food  will have no choice but to change to meet the demands of their customers.  We have to stand up and demand our foods be labeled. We have to care enough to start reading, questioning the labels, & not buying the “dead food”.  We have to come out of our sleeping food coma’s and recognize the level to which we have been duped & then take positive action around it. We have to ask for NO genetically modified foods & to insist they be labeled. We have to stop feeding the factory farming industry of our precious animals.

It starts with each one of us getting in touch with ourselves! I believe in you and I KNOW you can do it!!!  Your body, mind, & Spirit will thank you and reward you for it too!

Water IS the SOURCE Itself

I originally intended to devote at least one post to incorporating plenty of PURE WATER into your life (at least half your body weight in ounces/per day or greater) as part of Rainbow Light Nutrition, but it’s going to take several to get it done!!

There is not one being on this earth that can physically survive without water. We can all go quite awhile without food, but no water, no life. Our bodies are made up of predominantly water (50-75%), and we need at least six to eight glasses/day of water to sustain, heal, refuel, & recharge all of the cells of our body all the way down to the particle (smallest) level. Water represents so many things: our Mother, our emotions, our creativity, the flow of life, that which is in a constant state of fluid change. With water; we purify ourselves, we release, we heal, we recharge, we let go, we are stable, we build, we create!!!!

Water is literally SOURCE energy ITSELF; and deserves deep respect. We live in a time of never experienced before levels of pollution of our air, water, & soils due to our disrespect of Nature, and so it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain pure sources of water like naturally occuring mineral abundant spring water. This is because we are in the Kali Yuga (the age of darkness), when humans are the most materialistic and the least in alignment with their environment.  Add to that the chemicals that in many cases are at toxic levels in our water, and also being added to our water in varying degrees and toted and marketed as being beneficial like flouride (oooooweeee- that one gets it’s own  future post). In so many parts of the world, humans are experiencing neurological, physical, mental, & emotional problems which are a direct result of the toxicity of the water, and they are causing many unneccessary deaths and debilitating illnesses. We need to create and implement solutions to purifying our water.

So what can we do? First realize that we can take responsibility and steps to obtain the purest water we can get our hands on! It is our birthright as far as I’m concerned. Everyone on this planet should have enough water and food and they should be unadulterated, alive, bursting with Source energy, free of toxic chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, pharmaceutical drugs et. al.), and abundant with all the trace minerals originally intended for our bodies.

1.) Realize that bottled water is in most cases no different than tap water in terms of nutrition; and contributes more plastic to an already existing environmental crisis.

2.) Get yourself a re-usable water bottle/s; and know that you are doing yourself and the Earth right. Personally; I am a glass maniac. I love to re-use glass juice bottles. I find water stored in glass bottles tastes delicious!!! My second choice is stainless steel.  I avoid plastic because of the ridiculous amounts of chemicals found in them.

3.) Have your tap water tested. Find out what is in your town drinking water. Find out the exact source of your tap water; and what is being added to it. We just received our Town of Clayton water report and it was a good laugh. The good news is there are people who are banding together in their communities and insisting on the changing of legislation through the removal of flouride in the water. Especially for our infants, who are the greatest risk population when it comes to this issue. KUDOS!!!!

4.) Consider using in your home or business a Roxtract Living Mineral Water filtration system. I can’t say enough amazing things about how this water has changed my health, and the health of my family. We began sleeping better and sounder, some of our health ailments improved , our skin became softer, our immune systems got stronger, & we had tons of increased energy due to this incredible living water!  If you are interested in learning more you can email me at: motherofpearlinstitute@gmail.com.

                     Roxtract Water System:

  • We have discovered that these minerals in an ionized form can help hydrate our body much faster than regular water. With our Roxtract Water System, we can deliver ‘living water’ to everybody who invests in this non electric, gravity fed device.
  • There are 22 lab proven minerals in an ionized form. There are also over 40 trace minerals in the Roxtract Solution.
  • The cluster of water molecule will be reduced to 6.5 from 12, which is the size of other kinds of water we label as “dead water.” Reverse osmosis water, distilled water, tap water, purified water are all dead water. Other than hydration, they do little in terms of delivering benefits to our health.
  • Roxtract minerals have the ability to decalcify. Therefore any calcification build-up that takes place within our body will be dissolved. Think of the implication from the dental issues to kidney stones. .
  • Minerals in an ionized form perform fast garbage collection work. That means toxins within our body will be ushered out thru urine, sweat and other transportation methods.
    Roxtract Minerals draw purest oxygen from the water they are in, sending a fresh dosage of oxygen to your body, every time you drink this water. This means that Roxtract water can be stored for eternity.
5.) Look around for a natural mineral/spring water source. Depending on what part of the world you live in; this may be an option. Be a researcher; not just a consumer.
6.) Learn about the effects your thoughts, feelings, words, & prayers have on your water.  I bless all my water in the same way I bless my food beforehand. I’m going to post another blog about the work of Dr. Emoto in Japan and his work with the water molecule because it is amazing, eye opening and inspiring what happens to our water with the awesome power of our mind.  The water IS you, you ARE the water! Get in touch with and connect with what you are drinking.
The relationship you have with water is the most significant relationship in your entire life…….so nurture it!  Invest into it. Love it. Heal yourself with it. Make peace with it.  And of course……DRINK TO YOUR HEALTH!!
