It has been a long time since I wrote last. It has been a rough 8 months and my family has been through a lot! A lot of very hard trying times. Things are still not going smoothly but it is time to put my foot down so to speak and come back to putting my wellness first! I got lost in the "world" again. I stopped eating raw and doing yoga and slowed my meditation down. Some of it was do to multiple moves in a short period of time with 4 kids and no partner to help or support the process! So I will go easy on myself!
Now is the time for me and my communion with the divine. Getting back to the things that help me serve in God's love in a more pure channel! So back to Raw foods, Yoga, walking, meditating, and writing here!
I am not one for New Year's resolutions but by golly I am gonna do it...LOL
I will begin making changes this year and taking the time to put my wellness back in order!
Starting now I will allow the energies that support the way I want to live to flow in!
I can only take good care of my kids, family, and friends when I am in the "Flow"....
Loving you always!

Now I am having a hard time emotionally! I am sleeping a lot and very down. I know this is an illusion but I am having difficulty moving through this. I have faith that I will move through this, but it hasn't been fun in the process! The cravings are so strong and it is truly the Grace of God that I have not caved in!
I have made lots of wonderful Raw recipe's and have the picture's in my camera. I will share soon!
I invite the Holy Spirit to assist in this Miracle!

From my last post you can see that I was going through some cravings and physical detoxing. Right now I am going through Physical, emotional, and spiritual changes. Lots of buttons up to be released! Lots of tears, fears and illusions in my awareness! It is coming fast and due to my body[and head] aching it is hard to get to the computer and stay for more than a minute!
I will be back as soon as I feel better! LOVING YOU ALWAYS

I would say the most profound aspect of the DVD for me is the amazing, different & individual approaches each of the participants brought to this! Spiritually I felt very confirmed on a lot of the different aspects of the ego and how to overcome them. I saw all the participants as an aspect of myself and learned more about myself through watching it! I was also confirmed by the amazing success they had and how to take the the aspects of Kirt[very positive, strong and supportive] in to my own way of life. I, like him LOVE healing through Raw foods and would love to share the support, knowledge and love with others!
I would recommend this DVD to anyone wanting to feel inspired in their life!! All levels of Raw interest would find enjoyment and Love with this DVD! Here is a link to the trailer for the DVD!

I knew on so many levels why I did not want to eat meat anymore and to no longer put such a low vibration in my body! Now I am realizing even more how one person can make a significant difference! When I purchase organic raw foods I am telling the universe what to produce more of! The single purchase of something that is not serving [meat, drugs, alcohol, porn, & processed foods] affects what the divine energy of creation will be manifested in to. The world only makes what there is a calling for. Once again I am feeling how much the power is put in my hands and how I choose to live my life. My outer world is a direct reflection of my inner world. I can choose which direction to send the powerful manifesting energy of the divine! I, as one single person makes a difference! I choose to make a beautiful difference! I love Our Earth and I choose to serve God by loving her and treating her with kindness! She is me and there is no separation! LOVE! How do you make a beautiful difference? Please share with us! I also ask what is one more way you can make an even more beautiful difference today? What action can you take? I am going to make even more steps in to making my home a green home! That is my next step[s]. Please share with us!=-) <3 <3
Loving You Always

These came out really well. I was pleasantly surprised! I got both recipe's from Jennifer Cornbleet's Book Raw Food Made Easy. I LOVE this book!!! I have lots of Raw recipe books and this is the one that I seem to use the most. The recipe's are very easy and they taste great! I have found that I have changed many. Out of all my books I use this one daily or my own recipe that was made out of a recipe of hers. I definitely think every beginner would benefit having this book in their collection to start with.

I just came out from a couple of days of self doubt. The whole time I saw what aspect it was and what was causing it. I made the choice to stand up for my life and stand in the fire for myself!!! Give Myself the encouragement I often give others and my kids. It was time for me to receive the same love I give to others. I have made the choice to start a Raw Food business and the universe had delivered the help SO FAST AND WONDERFULLY. Thank you God! I will be honest though. It pushed self worth buttons. My nervous system was on edge. I could feel the need for old patterning to be looked at then let go of. I am sure as no surprise to you all, I also started craving cooked foods. My ego tried to talk me into eating continuously! I heard all the voices trying to tell me that I can not succeed and that Raw Foods is to radical and that everything should be in moderation. All those old voices[the ego] that had me trapped in the world of food addiction and that was comforted with unserving foods. I am relieved to say that I did not cave this time around! I know for me that an all Raw diet is best. I could not have done with out faith[it was tested though]!!! It is now over 3 months! I could hear the voice of addiction speaking to me and I could also see the old me that used to listen to those voices. Boy oh Boy...... no wonder why my nervous system was on edge....
Today I feel more confidant, strong, and loving. Able to be more loving and compassionate for others and myself. Today I am going to make more steps towards my dreams and goals.=-) Right Now I am in a deep state of Gratitude for all that I have. I can not do any of this with out God & meditation being my constant companion! THANK YOU!!

With my kids I am trying to get to a place of comfort. I am doing my best but the old conditioning is harder to let go[for me] when it comes to my kids. I was taught that if they have a fever give them Motrin or Tylenol, let them run around and allow them to run down their bodies even more. My instinct is to let the fever run it's course with no medicine. But then I get scared of harming my Angels. I have come to a place of slowly seeing what happens. Now I only give them medicine for fevers when it gets VERY high and if it is high right before bed. Simply because I can not watch them if I am sleeping. My ego fights with my inner voice and I find it hard to decipher what is"best" for them. I feel some fear because it is not my body and I can't always tell what is going on within them. I do not take medicine. I let whatever is going on to run it's course. But I am deeply in tune with my body and if I was to truly get scared I would get my butt to a doctor. But how do I know what to do with the kids? So the voice of the ego and social conditioning is what is being released at this time. I am seeking a place of knowledge, intuition and wisdom.
As with myself, I know that the kids bodies are telling us something as well. But they were brought up on dairy and cooked foods. I have gone Organic[when available] with the dairy and I am bringing in more and more Raw Foods. This is still a process and the older kids 12 & 7 are not going as easily as the 3 and 5 year old. I am grateful for the medicine for helping me with my kids but I would like to get to a place where we are in charge of our health and will no longer have to have this as a concern. I would also like to say that it is not often that my kids need to have any medicine at all but this is what is coming up.
Does anyone know any good books on this subject? I am seeking a place within that has wisdom, intuition and also having the knowledge to back it up.=-)

It is getting warmer here. Which is wonderful! It has been a clod winter. I mostly was in the house with 3 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of pants and 2 shirts. It drove me nutty but staying committed to Raw was more important, and I am glad I made it through.
I am also glad that I do 99% Raw. I eat very little nutritional yeast, Grade B maple syrup, and rice paper for spring rolls. But otherwise I am all Raw. I am loving it!!!!
Loving you always

I am one of those who have seen the movie The Secret, Louis Hay's work, and know the Abraham teachings. Well today I made an important link to thoughts, emotions, physical wellness, and "success". It all linked up inside me on how to work with my emotions. Which can be strong during the detox period for someone who used to use food to hide within.
When I have a negative emotion it comes directly from a negative thought. Which is just the ego and realizing this helped me to continue with the inner work I already do. I strongly believe in not taking the ego seriously. So when Jesus says choose again, all I have to do is change my thoughts and then allow the positive energy & emotions that come with those thoughts flow through. To be healthy and joy filled all I have to do is choose it! Right now! Just choose it. It is that simple.
A MAJOR important step in being able to let go of negative energy, thoughts, & emotions is to support the body with soul nourishing nutrition. My body is just another form of energy. So what I put in & on my body directly affects my state of wellbeing. There is not one thing that does not carry an energy. All though everything in truth holds the peace of God and is pure. All of creation holds this truth. But when something is processed and taken from it's original source and has the original source energy cooked, squeezed, chemicalized, processed, polished and anything else that can fit in there it starts to densen it's physical energy. This holds true for furniture, people, animals, food, plants, & cloths. An example is a wooden chair. It was connected to source when it was alive as a tree and flowing with nutrients, power, & lifeforce. Then it gets cut from it's roots, stripped of it's bark, cut down, most often chemicalized, cut down some more, then has metal banged into it, then stained and polished[with chemicals]. While the chair is not of a low vibration sitting there looking pretty, and strong enough to hold a human. It is not as vibrant, and lifeforce filled as it was when it was still a tree.
We can still connect to the pure truth of the tree through the chair, but it takes more work. Eating raw foods makes it easier and a clearer channel to release negative emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. I am not clouded by chemicals, pollutants, and dense food. Raw & living foods support my spiritual reality by making a clearer physical reality to support me. I want to live as pure love and live as the peace of God.
I know that I can still eat whatever I want, lather my body in chemical lotions, soaps & products & still reach this place. I am simply choosing the path in the forest that doesn't have poison ivy and an easier walk through. I have a choice and I am making it in every moment. To live healthy, happy and holy.
This is what Raw & living foods is for me. A clearer connection to Source and through that I can live in abundance.

What are Chia Seeds?
Answer (Published 5/15/2006)
Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in southern Mexico. You may have seen chia sprouts growing on the novelty planters called Chia Pets, but historically, the seeds have been the most important part of the plant. In pre-Columbian times they were a main component of the Aztec and Mayan diets and were the basic survival ration of Aztec warriors. I've read that one tablespoon was believed to sustain an individual for 24 hours. The Aztecs also used chia medicinally to stimulate saliva flow and to relieve joint pain and sore skin.
Chia is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seeds. And it has another advantage over flax: chia is so rich in antioxidants that the seeds don't deteriorate and can be stored for long periods without becoming rancid. And, unlike flax, they do not have to be ground to make their nutrients available to the body. Chia seeds also provide fiber (25 grams give you 6.9 grams of fiber) as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc.
Another advantage: when added to water and allowed to sit for 30 minutes, chia forms a gel. Researchers suggest that this reaction also takes place in the stomach, slowing the process by which digestive enzymes break down carbohydrates and convert them into sugar.
Chia has a nutlike flavor. You can mix seeds in water and add lime or lemon juice and sugar to make a drink known in Mexico and Central America as "chia fresca." As with ground flax seeds, you can sprinkle ground or whole chia seeds on cereal, in yogurt or salads, eat them as a snack, or grind them and mix them with flour when making muffins or other baked goods. I find them tasty and an interesting addition to my diet.
Chia is undergoing something of a renaissance after centuries of neglect. It was a major crop in central Mexico between 1500 and 900 B.C. and was still cultivated well into the 16th century, AD, but after the Spanish conquest, authorities banned it because of its close association with Aztec religion (Indians used the seeds as offerings in rituals). Until recently, chia was produced by only a few small growers, but commercial production has resumed in Latin America, and you can now buy the seeds online and in health food stores.
Because of its nutritional value and stability, chia is already being added to a range of foods. Research has shown that adding it to chicken feed makes for eggs rich in omega-3s. Feeding chia to chickens enriches their meat with omega-3s; fed to cattle chia enriches milk with omega-3s. Chia can also be added to commercially prepared infant formulas, baby foods, baked goods, nutrition bars, yogurt, and other foods. Another bonus: insects don't like the chia plant so it is easier to find organically grown varieties. I expect we'll soon be hearing much more about chia and its health benefits.

I have been doing Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga now for about 10 months now. Before I went 100% Raw this time around I was having a harder time in the poses and my balance was starting to get shaky. I was doing an AM & PM session as part of my sadhana. Now I am back to doing it at least once daily and working way back to twice daily. Now that I have allowed my body to come into it's own strength again I am doing better than ever. The strength, flexibility, and balance are much more improved. I can also move in and out of each pose with more Grace.
Our bodies are always letting us know what it requires. This is becoming an amazing journey of learning my bodies wisdom. Which is becoming my strongest tool in the world to let me know what is going on around me and my part in it. I love to drink a green smoothie after a nice Yoga session. I can feel it feeding my body all it needs. Today I put Kale, dandelion greens, spinach, Green powder mix, lemon juice, apple , papaya, Kelp, Bee pollen and coconut oil. Yum and very nourishing.

Yesterday and today have been interesting! I am very happy about all the Raw foods the kids have been eating. Ethan is asking for carrots skin and all. He Loves them. Isabella announced today that she is now a Rawfoodist=-} Emerald thinks we are all crazy[hehehe]. Then after 10 minutes of Isabella being happy she started to realize all the cooked foods that she loves that she will miss. Then I told her she could do an 80% way and that soothed her mind. But then I started to think about it.......... She reacted the way so many of us do when we think about going to a Raw food way of life 100%. I know I had those same thoughts 2 years ago. That's why it took me a year and 1/2 to go 100% from when I first learned of Raw foods. Going 100% is the best choice for me at this time. Physically, emotionally and spiritually. So what is important is that we listen to our bodies wisdom, and not the voice of the ego. Our body knows what it wants to eat if we go quiet inside and "listen". So for some it might not be 100% and an 80% way would be best & eating cooked whole grains in their diet during the winter could be best. What is best is to listen to your own intuitive wisdom and do what our most psychic tool, OUR BODY, is telling us. If we get stuck in what books and experts tell us is best then we are still giving our power to another source. It is important to take the wisdom of these wonderful experts and incorporate them into our way of life. But ultimately us and our bodies are the true wisdom to listen to.
This is how I have grown from being 100% Raw. Now that I can so clearly see what my body is telling me to eat and what the "little me" is telling me to eat. I can make a more conscious choice of when and what I eat. Sometimes I fall into the voice of the ego, little me, and will have something Raw that my body was not telling me, but this is how I am learning how decipher the different voices. The voices telling me to eat cooked foods I just meditate on and release or breath through it,or have something Raw. Those voices are not telling me to eat soul supportive and body nourishing foods. This time around I have not caved into those. I see them for what they are. It is my body releasing the toxins of these cooked foods and it is just my body telling me this. Many voices and learning which one is my ultimate truth. This is a very enlightening journey for me. Being 100% Raw is my path to getting more clarity on what voices are which. I'm Loving It!
