♥ March Forecast 2014 – Astrological theme for March is COMMITMENT.  Where are you committed to letting things go?  Where are you committed to being open and receptive in life?  What are you willing to manifest and go after? A powerful month, indeed!

♥ When You Feel Down or Stuck: How to Effectively Be What You’re Not – This can be an effective tool when stuck in a rut, feeling funky or depressed.  I’ve done something similar at times and it does work.  It shifts the mindset and one can become more proactive in life and situations. 

♥ A CALL TO ACTION: IT’S TIME TO LOVE YOUR BODY – Amen, sister Claire!  I totally agree!  I’ve been upping my self-care practice on several levels and this is one area that I have finally been “getting” with myself. I have been shifting my mindset around my body image and sending it more love, compassion and appreciation.   It has been freeing on many levels and I still have to catch those ugly thoughts that pop in, but I am LOVING myself more (bumps, scars, cellulite, the good bits, strengths, etc.) It’s ME and I love it!  Enjoy this read and be inspired to YOUR own amazing body.

♥ Pre-Order The Blender Girl Cookbook – Tess Masters AKA The Blender Girl is having her biggest giveaway event ever! From March 1st to April 11th Tess is offering 42 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS to celebrate the April 8th release of her new cookbook The Blender Girl. Every day there will be a winner!  I was fortunate to be one of Tess’ recipe tasters for the book and believe me, THIS IS ONE BOOK YOU WANT!  If you’re looking for easy healthy foods to include in your lifestyle (no matter how you eat) there is something for everyone.  

♥ 10 Simple DIY Serums For Every Skin Type! – This is a great basic tutorial from Jenni Raincloud on how to create your own essential oil serum.  I’ve been using one for several months that I created using rose hip oil as a base along with frankincense, lavendar, lemon and carrot seed oil.  It is GREAT!  Have fun concocting your own blend for your skin.

♥ 6 Best Vegetables for Green Smoothies -  Great suggestions. I like mixing it up with beet greens, organic spinach, kale, swiss chard, herbs such as mint, cilantro, basil and weeds such as dandelion greens, chickweed and purslane.  Check out my Purslane – Superfood Weed and Smoothie Recipe.

♥ Countless Uses for Coconut Oil – The Simple, the Strange, and the Downright Odd – Fantastic article on the many beneficial ways to incorporate coconut oil into your beauty regimen, household cleaning, cooking and so much more.  I learned some new tricks and tips.  I ADORE coconut oil.

♥ The Power of Silence: 8 Ways It Will Improve Your Life – By practicing times of silence, it has been immensely helpful, healing, inspiring and brought clarity into my life on a deeper level.  I try to practice silence at least once a day – it is my self nurturing time and I find it so delicious and special.

♥ Raw Kale Ceasar Salad with Almond Crusted Paleo Chicken – This looks heavenly!  I think I’ll try it this weekend.  Thank you Linda Wagner for another beautiful recipe.

♥ Canola oil: The #1 Hidden Health Danger at the Prepared Food Bar -  Whenever I eat out (not often) and it happens to be at a Whole Foods bar, I always read the ingredient list of the prepared items and if I see “canola oil”, I sigh and keep moving on reading the next ingredient card till I find something that works for me.

♥ NEW MOON in Pisces March 1, 2014 – Astral insights from Mystic Mamma.  I’ve been feeling a lot of the shifts already.  Several lessons and gifts imparted.  Be patient, compassionate and gentle with yourselves (especially others).  Go with the flow and hang out with your Spirti/Soul for guidance along the way.

♥ How to Start a (Mostly) Raw Diet Without Shocking Your Taste Buds – A great article from Kimberly Snyder about how to transition and incorporate more raw foods into your diet without shocking your body or taste buds. 

♥ How To Use Grounding To Deepen Your Connection To Earth, Yourself, and Others  – I couldn’t agree with this article MORE!  I have been wanting to write a post on this very subject – and I may just still yet. Enjoy!

♥ The Power of DIY Self-Care: A Directory of Recipes & Treatments – Some great DIY self-care recipes!  I am going to start a new notebook with sections that cater to hair, body, face, and shower/bath.  I’ve got a nice compilation of recipes that I make and use and always open to trying new ones.  The “tried and true” are kept in the notebook.  I do this with kitchen recipes.  I will try many, but the “winners” make it into the notebook for return visits on the menu plan. 

♥ Homemade Coconut Flour – I do this all the time and this post shows you how to do it simply.  So easy to make and nothing goes to waste.  I love making my own coconut milk (and Scott loves it in his morning coffee). It is great to use in smoothies, tonics, desserts, soups and more.  The leftover flour is great for many recipes and I will sometimes add the leftover pulp from milk to the dog’s food bowls.  So good and healthy for them. 

♥ New Moon Update 3-1-14 – The New Moon is always the time to reset our intentions and begin anew.

♥ Indulge your Chocolate Fantasies with Raw Cacao Powder – Jenny Travens from SuperFoodLiving.com has a great article on my beloved raw cacao.  You can read my article devoted to this friendly superfood The Difference Between CACAO and COCOA Powder.  Jenny has some great and FREE information about superfoods that I suggest you check out. I love learning more about the benefits of superfoods

♥ Ginger Detox Shot – Linda Wagner brings us another goodie! Oh, this is for the brave of heart!  It is intense, but OH SO WORTH IT!  The ingredients pack a powerful punch and act as an anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, antioxidant, lymph system cleanser and more.  I love doing these shots! 

♥ I Was A Raw Vegan For More Than 3 Years Because I Was Insane – This is an interesting article.  I have to agree with the writer, Sami G, that we are all biochemically different and what works for me might not work for you and vice versa.  What works for us will be different at different stages in our life, our activity level, our emotional level, the seasons, etc. It varies day to day.  Appreciate, love, and enjoy every bite of your food.  The point is to have a healthy relationship with food.  Make the best choices for yourself and family and don’t fall into guilt, shame or unworthiness based on what others are doing.  Learn to be open, compassionate and non-judgmental of others – but especially with yourself.  Check out this article by Sami G : Speak Your Truth,  Forgive and Move On.

♥ The Helpfulness of Structure: An Un-Diet Update – Great article by Marlena Torres from Health Through Indulgence.  Enjoy!

♥ The Miracle of Lymph – Fantastic post by Dr. John Douillard regarding the lymphatic system, how it works, signs of a sluggish or stagnant lymph system and more.  I learned even more about this system in this article.  Check out my posts on ways to get your lymph system flowing again: Rebounding 101 and The correct way to skin brush.  Also, another reminder to reduce and  find healthy ways to manage stress in one’s life. 

♥ You’ve ditched the pill…now you’re losing your hair?! - Fantastic article regarding hormone imbalance.  It could be due to coming off the Pill or stress, which affects our hormones and thyroid immensely.  I love the suggestions.  I include many of them in my own diet. I have experienced hormone imbalance and you can check out my post How I Have Been Balancing My Hormones – NATURALLY and my herbal Happy Hormone Tonic.

Thoughtful Thursday

Be aware from your heart.

♥ HOW TO MANAGE YOUR MOODS – Great article!  Can you relate to any of these?

♥ Plasticity and the Power of Affirmations – Interesting perspective.

♥ How to Respond to Negative People Without Being Negative – I know we’ve all been there (and some still are).  I used to let other people and their negativity “wire me up”.  Then I learned to turn within and work on myself.  To come from a place of compassion.  To protect myself from their energies and let it go.  It makes experiencing anyone in life much more pleasurable and peaceful.   And, as always, you can say “Excuse me.”  and walk away from it. 

♥ How to Gently Cleanse Your Pet’s Body of Toxins – I love this article from Dr. Karen Becker, holistic vet.  I have been reading and watching her videos for years.  I have learned so much how to take care of my furry loved ones safely.  I think you will find some real nuggets of wisdom and good advice here.   By using herbs, homeopathy and natural approaches, I have been able to turn around the blood work of my dogs (that had some high levels), forgo pain meds (homeopathy works wonders with no side effects), detox safely, avoid using toxic flea meds., improve their quality of health and more.  Just as we integrate these practices with ourselves, it can be applied to our pets. 

♥ Yoga for Busy People: 5 Poses to Help You Work - Love this article!  Applies to anyone – anytime!  A good reminder for self-care: body, mind and spirit.

♥ Cabin Fever – Spunky MonicaB does it again!  Dishing out some great Ayurdvedic advice for the winter months. Cabin fever, anyone!?  I know I’ve got it.  I’ve been doing some of these tips from Monica, but just found a few more to throw in.  Thanks, Gorgeous!

♥ JUXTAPOSED BELIEFS – WHEN SOMEONE SEES THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY TO YOU - Yep! We all experience this on some level.  Great insight from Claire Obeid.

♥ Create More Joy in Your Life by Prioritizing Things You Enjoy Doing -  This is great advice!  I have found that by putting what is most important to me and DOING them daily or weekly has brought much joy.  Take care of yourself first.

♥ Zucchini and Watercress Soup from Dr Hyman’s 10-Day Detox DietTess Masters posted this recipe last week on her website Healthy Blender Recipes (one of my FAVS!).  It is FANTASTIC!  The soup and her website.   I couldn’t find any watercress at my store, so I used organic spinach.  So simple to make and blend.  A real winner that will now become a staple in my soup rotation list.   Check it out and make.  I had plenty of leftovers for a few days.

♥ Hormonal Imbalance 101: How to Heal Yourself Naturally – Great article!  Learn more.  Also, check out my article How I Have Been Balancing My Hormones – NATURALLY and my Happy Hormone Tonic recipe.

♥ Simple Living Manifesto: 72 Ideas to Simplify Your Life – This post by Jackie at The Paleo Mama is just INSPIRING!  For several years I have been simplifying things in my life and these tips/links help even more.  I got some great tips and will be putting several into practice and doing some more research for my area.  Thank you Jackie for putting this all together.

 

♥ 102 Soup Recipes – Here is a great link to some wonderful healthy soups catering to all dietary lifestyles.  You are sure to find something that will light your fire.  Yours truly has a soup highlighted Healthy Raw Tortilla Soup.  I made it just the other day.  So satisfying, easy to make and full of nutrition = my kind of recipe.  I found some new recipes in this link to try and looking forward to it.  Hope you do too.

Smoothie Class with Kibby – If you live nearby, I will be doing a superfood smoothie class on February 22nd at Blue Moon Elise in Murphy, NC.  Check out the details!  Last Saturday, I had the honor of making raw chocolate superfood smoothies at Rachel’s shop after her yoga class (which is AMAZING!!) for most of the day.   Rocking the Vitamix with raw Cacao powder, Maca powder, other superfoods and sharing it with other people = my kind of Saturday afternoon FUN!  Met some wonderful new people in the community.  

♥ Full Moon Update 2-14-14 – Inspiring astrological forecast for the full moon on St. Valentines Day. 

Powerful information.

♥ February Forecast 2014 – The Power Path astrological forecast for February is RELEASE with a sub-theme of PRIORITIES.  What a beautiful month ahead!   I’ve been working on some of these themes already.   What about you? 

♥ Aging -  What a lovely post by the lovely Cara of Maskcara.  I find beauty to be so much more also.  

♥ Pushing Vs. Allowing – A beautiful, heart felt post from the lovely Kimberley at Dream. Delight. Inspire.  I can totally relate to this post.  Can you?

♥ The Power of Kindness: Life-Changing Advice About Creating Happiness – I love this!  Kindness is such a simple act from the heart.  Sometimes it’s for us, sometimes it’s for others.  Sharing kindness can be life changing and by implementing it daily into your life and heart, see what beauty manifests in your life.  Mostly within you.  

♥ How to Not Suck at Life… 8 Mindset Patterns that Give you More Options in Life Every Day – Well said Hayley Carr!  I can relate to a lot of this.  Great advice and many of which I have been implementing for some time and continue to work with on a daily basis.   Thanks Hayley! 

via iHerb.com

♥ Garden of Life RAW Protein products found to contain heavy metals tungsten, lead and cadmiumI’ve had several people contact me when this article hit the news – “Yikes! I’ve been drinking this every morning/day and NOW what do I use to replace it!?”  I personally use Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Protein Powder and love it.  They use a proprietary blend of Raw Organic Pea Protein, Raw Cranberry Protein, Raw Organic Hemp Seed Protein.  

♥ Mercury Retrograde February 2014 – No Half Measures – Great astrological insight from one of my favorite astrologers, Leah Whitehorse.  Don’t fear Mercury retrograde just be aware.

♥ Hold Your Horses – Mercury Stations Retrograde – More Mercury retrograde insight that is full of awareness and guidance from Emily Trinkaus at Virgo Magic.  Retrogrades hold much learning and growth if we allow it.  By slowing down and being more aware from our hearts, much can be glimpsed that we wouldn’t have seen before.  

♥ 7 Men’s Beauty Tips Guys Need to Know But Are Too Embarrassed to Ask For – Fantastic tips for those special men in our lives.  I like to “suggest” to Scott sometimes to let me rub coconut oil on his hands, feet, arms, etc. for a nice massage AND he’s getting some natural healing oils to heal his skin at the same time.  Also, TLC never hurts to heal too.  :)  I love the shaving cream recipe and will be making it for Scott.  I make our own toothpaste and most everything else – even deodorant.  These tips show your man just how much you care. 

♥ Is Your Soul Trying To Guide You But You’re Just Not Listening? – What a fantastic article by Lissa Rankin!  I just wrote a post very similar that I will be sharing with you all next week.  This one is very dear to my heart. 

♥ 20 Ways Sitting In Silence Can Completely Transform Your Life – This is WONDERFUL!  I so enjoy silence.  It didn’t used to be this way.  Once I embraced, no turning back. It is soul healing and has helped me in so many ways. I’ve gotten to know myself and like HER.  It has made me aware of so many things that I didn’t like and had the opportunity to change them for the better.  Simplicity has been one of the great lessons.  I don’t owe anything to anyone except myself.  I am FREE to make my own choices for ME.

♥ Mercury goes Retrograde February 6th-28th – Sorry, couldn’t help it!  One more.  Each one has such great insight though.  Wonderful insight from Mystic Mamma.  With more understanding of Mercury retrogrades now, I embrace them and enjoy the turning within and slowing down aspects.   Just go with the flow.

 ♥ BE YOUR OWN GURU – Great words of wisdom.  We all have one inside.  Let it out to shine.

 ♥ DIY Eco-Friendly Dryer Sheets – I love this!  I was just thinking the other day that I wanted to be able to make my own dryer sheets and then I came across this.  Bingo!  Thought y’all would enjoy it too.  I used some geranium and lavender essential oil in my blend.  Yummy!

 ♥ It’s More Than What We Eat: 12 Ayurvedic Tips for Healthy Eating -  Amen! I highly recommend these simple practices.

 ♥ chocolate ganache brownies – I’ve got another one of Gabby’s @ the veggie nook recipes to share this week.  It’s a winner!

 ♥ Full Moon Update 1-15-14 -  Clean out the old and let the sunshine in!

 ♥ FULL MOON in Cancer January 15, 2014 - More juicy astrological insight from the lovely MysticMamma. 

 ♥ Rosemary Hot White Chocolate, Milkshake - Now THIS looks lovely.  I’m going to substitute gynostemma tea leaves (or tea bag) (aids in weight loss, adaptogenic, caffeine free) for the green tea leaves. 

 ♥ Diatomaceous Earth for your Family, Home, and Homestead – This is a fantastic article about Diatomaceous Earth.  I’ve been  using it in my home and garden for over 10 years.  I eat it (mixed in water or smoothies is easiest) and sprinkle on dogs food and on their fur (they look funny right afterwards).  Check out the many ways to use it and believe me – it is safe as long as you use FOOD GRADE.  I purchase mine at local co-op garden center.

 ♥ The Invisible Benefits of Grounding – I adore grounding. It’s actually very natural.  Many in society rarely touch the earth with their feet or go outside in nature.   The body is meant to connect with this energy and suffers when it is deprived.  Great read.

 ♥ How to Embrace Your True Beauty (Not the Media’s Ideal) – I LOVE THIS!   What if true beauty were defined by who we are rather than how we look?  This is a subject that I have actually been working on myself with.  Screw the media – I know what is important according to ME.  How do you feel?

 ♥ 3 Steps to Stop Judging and Being Hard on Yourself – OH, I can not agree on this one more!  I am sure you do too.  I have found that LOVING myself unconditionally and fully has been a blessing on putting the Judge in the corner.  If she pipes up, I’m aware and reverse the wording that is running through my head till the TRUTH comes back to center.  It’s OK.  Nothing to get upset over.  It’s part of our growth and journey.

 The tonic ebook writing is going well.  I am putting more into it than I originally intended.  I think you all will be thrilled with it!  I am so far.  Enjoy the reads for the week and BE INSPIRED!  I’ll be in touch soon.   Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or just want to say “HI!”.

♥ Sera Beak “Soul Fire: Burn, Baby Burn” for Emerging Women Live 2013 – This was shared by Vienda Maria last week and came to me at the perfect time.  It is well worth the 32 minutes of watching.  Please don’t think that the time frame is too long – I thought that at first – but I heard in my head to WATCH THIS.  If it resonates with you, please watch.  It confirmed my deepest thoughts lately.  Enjoy!

♥ The descent in the feminine process ~ An interesting take on depression (applies to the feminine and masculine).  I know that when I hit my lowest with my depression many years ago was when I WOKE UP and made a soul committal to LIVE.  I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I knew it was worth it.  It has been and continues to be (even in the ups and downs).  YOU can do it too!

♥ Edible Giving: Vanilla Cinnamon Pecan Milk -  I love this idea from Gena Hamshaw at Choosing Raw.   I usually make food gifts each year for family and friends.  It is a great way to say I LOVE YOU by giving a gift of health and wellness you made especially for them with LOVE.  If they like it, they will want the recipe and start incorporating it into their own lifestyle.  Score!  I like making this milk with raw walnuts. It will rock your world.

Did you know that you’re not seeing most of the great content you subscribe to? This applies to ALL of your FB Pages! Here’s the scoop: According to AdAge, Facebook said, “We expect organic distribution of an individual page’s posts to gradually decline over time…” And a Facebook spokesperson said, “the best way to get your stuff seen if you’re a business is to pay for it.” This means you are probably not receiving my content anymore via my Facebook page because it doesn’t make sense for me to pay Facebook to send you free nutrition tips, articles, recipes and inspiration. So, if you’d like to BE SURE you don’t miss out on all the great free content I offer, you should be sure you hop on my email list. Also, remember that MOST of my page content doesn’t show up in your News Feed anymore. It’s on your Pages Feed (find it on the left sidebar of your FB home page). I hope this helps! Please copy and paste this to spread the word to your friends & family, too! And don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss my free articles, videos, recipes and more.  Thank you for sharing Linda Wagner!

♥ Got Plaque? Want to Detox? Try Oil Pulling! (It’s Not as Crazy as it Sounds) – Fantastic article about oil pulling by Elizabeth at The Nourished Life.  I started oil pulling several years ago (off and on) but have been oil pulling daily for several months now.  Yes, there are results – good ones!  I had a loose tooth and after oil pulling for about a week or so – that tooth is nice and tight within the gums.   I use coconut oil sometimes, but have lately changed over to sesame seed oil (unprocessed, raw).  I think I will try Elizabeth’s recommendation of the olive oil and see how it goes.  I start off every a.m. with tongue scraping and then follow up with oil pulling.  My a.m. self-nurturing/self-healing ritual.   Tip:  Spit out oil after pulling in the trash can – not the sink or toilet.  The oils might clog the pipes.

♥ December Forecast 2013 – Love these monthly astrological insights from the School of Shamanism.  The theme for December is ADJUSTMENT.  It is about making small alterations and fine-tuning your intentions and action plans and paying attention to what is working and what is not. It is about moving everything into a better fit.  

♥ Herbs: A Simple “Green” Way to Help Boost Your Cat’s Health and Happiness - This is a great site for holistic pet care.

♥ Dear Body… – Thank you Elizabeth Walling from the Nourished Life for sharing this.  I think many women have felt or still feel this way.  I have just recently made the same connection, acceptance and love for my body.  The mind shift is pretty powerful.  LOVE your body – it’s the only one you’ve got.   It’s your temple – so care, listen and feed it well (mind, body and spirit).

♥ Vitamix Reconditioned Machine SALE! -  November is Recon Month at Vitamix and they have reduced the price on all certified reconditioned Vitamix machines.  Through 12/2 they have dropped the price by up to $30. Yippeeee!  Tell “Santa” this is on your list and $$$ can be saved.  

♥ 10 Symptoms of Gluten Intolerance - I am gluten sensitive/intolerant and wish I had known about this information YEARS ago.  I had my sensitivities confirmed by my holistic chiropractor last year thru muscle testing. I eliminated all gluten products and feel so much better.  At times, when I ingest something that has gluten in it (unbeknownst to me) – I feel it immediately physically and feel like S–T.  My body is saying, “No thank you, I do not resonate with that ingredient!” 

♥ 5 Tips to Feel Great After Thanksgiving Dinner -  Some great tips for healthy eating and enjoying yourself (and not feeling bloated after a heavy meal) on Thanksgiving Day.

♥ Protein Deficiency: The Hidden Signs – Interesting article!  I found myself feeling protein deficient a few weeks ago and had my energy healer friend, Cindy Campbell test me and sure enough! I needed more protein.  We muscle tested for the source my body required and it was not animal.  We tested the Sunwarrior Blend Protein Powder and my body tested STRONG with it.  I have been having 1 to 2 protein shakes daily since then.  I have felt great and symptoms Dr. Douillard mentioned in article have disappeared.  So, like I always say – LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.  It knows!
