Consumption

Intuitive Eating

There is so much information regarding diet and health these days where do we begin? Well the answer is not one anyone can answer for us, we literally become our own science experiment.  Information will come our way and we may feel lead to try things out, we will take data as we do by the way things make us feel.  What worked for me may not work for you.

  • We must take in outside factors,  what kind of climate are we in? Our body is consistently regulating, it's absorbing nutrients, it's getting rid of what it cant use, it's protecting itself, creating hormones, keeping the blood at a balance of 7.4 PH... it's doing a million things we don't have to think about, we call that process "homeostasis."  Our body will do anything to survive, it is our best friend and adapts the most effective way possible based on outside circumstance; What we feed it, our stress level, the air we breathe, and the other means of consumption such as what we choose to do with our time. 
  • Learning about how the body works, the systems of the body and what things support it. The body is self healing, but is usually over burdened by unnatural consumption.  Too much processed foods, no exercise or nature exploration, stress, over working, and lacking true human connection outside of our inner circles.  Although the power of the mind is the ultimate tool, most of the time we must go through the physical body to truly access the control panels of the mental.  I say that because we operate mainly from the subconscious which is our automatic mind mode.  And so in cleaning out the body through means of detoxification is a discipline that that brings about mental clarity and awareness to the conscious mind. It isn't something easily explored, but through education and finding out "why," it tends to show up in our lives.  It comes giving us the opportunity to surrender to a change that bares many fruits.  In my case it came through the great teacher called pain.  Throughout my adult years fasting and detox have ushered in greater amounts of knowing and personal empowerment than any other events currently. 
  • Staying open to new information, practicing non-judgement, and remembering to be grateful for our bodies.  Gratitude is the language of the soul, of the earth, the universe, of god. Everything responds to gratitude. It is the most powerful tool we hold and when we give it, it is immediately returned as conformation of our true identity... it is the gift of giving.

Prepare

The body is astonishing, its our best friend, its always ready to fight for us even when we aren't for it, and in giving it assistance it will begin to heal. The mental clarity and spiritual closeness we begin to embody on this journey is a whole new world. 

 I've found fasting to release doubt and hesitation. The art feels as if it creates itself, the connection with the higher power is stronger. Fear isn't real, and yet until we jump we can't talk about it. I can't tell you I can only show you. So everyday becomes a prayer, a once and lifetime opportunity to be present to all each moment brings us.

Questions

I grew up on the standard american diet (SAD), I suffered from acne, digestive issues, skin cancer, anxiety, low self esteem and excess weight. I've tried all different diets and believe in using myself as an experiment to test theories surrounding food consumption. Raw fruit, veggies, and herbal remedies have restored my health and is the basis I've used in healing myself mentally and physically. I had an accident a few years back and lay unconscious for two hours. I awoke in an ambulance with a fractured skull and eye socket. Ever since that incident I am fascinated with death. I feel suffering is much worse than death, and maybe that's what we actually fear. I hope for all human beings to be healthy and happy until the great transformer named death. 

It is all an experiment though and if we are to give each other anything let it appreciation, validation and encouragement. Let us support paths that may not look like our own, and empower each others inner teacher. 

Healing

Yoga

    This is where meditation meets exercise. Think of it as a first date. It can be a bit uncomfortable until we relax. Stretching is a way the body communicates with  the mind. We have the opportunity to be intimate with each and every muscle that supports our movements. In doing this we create more blood flow which creates more energy, better digestion and assists the body in detoxification. 

      Although I find intuition to be a great guide for what my body needs, I do have a routine practice I use first thing in the morning. I am a ceritfied yoga instructor, and seek to create my life sharing this practice.

Guided Meditation

    In order to create an experience we must create an intention as well as balance the energies within our body. The world consists by polarity, and within us the feminine and masculine energies, the left and the right brain. We learn in life when we are still the skill to walk through life with the attitude of gratitude. In stillness we find ourselves within the greatest gift we have ever received, our body, the mechanism that we use to express life and create more. 

       Our mind is a useful servant to the body when programmed to see life through the love glasses of gratitude.

Spirituality

I don't think any opinions should ever seperate us and that remaining open to new ideas and concepts can only evolve us further in to love. For the reality we live in is one we should respect and honor. I know when we take in consideration the well being of all we become closer to ourselves and the earth, we start to navigate using our hearts
