Turn Your Bath Into a Rejuvenating Ritual

Nov 02, 13 Turn Your Bath Into a Rejuvenating Ritual

Posted by in Blog, Lifestyle, Spirit

For many cultures, bathing was a ritualist activity.  Symbolically, its very powerful to the mind to ‘wash away’ cares and stresses.   Through my work with various practitioners and spiritual teachers, I’ve put together a ‘recipe’ of the most powerful techniques to change your bath from simply cleansing – to completely rejuvenating.  This process can be incredibly powerful – and the more intent you put into it – the greater the change you will experience. Rejuvenating Bath Process – What You Need To Pre-Prepare: 1. Clean you bathroom For lots of reasons.  This will symbolically cleanse stagnant or slow moving energy from the room.  It will psychologically keep your mind from obsessing about the dirt, and allow you to fully relax. 2. Secure Your Potion In recent months, my experiences with aromatherapy oils have made me a BIG believer.   For this project, the oils will absorb into your skin – having a direct therapeutic effect, and you will also inhale them from the steam.  This will create vibrational changes in your brain and energy body, helping your mind to let go, and helping the subconscious to re-write new programming. It will make you more relaxed, open and free.  If you are not sure what to use, I recommend the ‘Purification Blend’ from Young Living, or ask your aromatherapist to create you a renewal blend.  I use a custom blend containing: Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Melaleuca, Lavender and Myrtle. The Process: 1.  Charge Your Space Light a minimum of three candles, and place them around your tub.  All proper ceremonies use candles around the perimeter as this prevents negative energy, or loose spirits from entering the space.  You then want to visualize a warm golden glow that expands out of your chest and envelops the bathroom in gold bubble.  From this point on, do your best to only bring positive thoughts into the space.  If it matches with your beliefs say a prayer, or mentally project your intention to strip away everything that is not...

Is A Revolution on The Way?

Oct 28, 13 Is A Revolution on The Way?

Posted by in Blog, Lifestyle

Russell Brand’s latest interview is circulating the web right now at a frantic pace.  But its not because the British comedian has made a gaffe or outrageously inappropriate comment.  Rather, the charismatic social commentator (who once admitted that as a child he thought he might be Jesus returned,) has said out loud what we all already knew.  With great confidence and positivity, Brand announced that the system is dead.  That government as we know it has stalled and can never be reformed back to a place that serves the people.  He announced that a revolution was coming.  Like the first few passengers who realize a ship is sinking, there are growing numbers of people who are ‘checking out’ of the current system.  Whether its young people who have stopped voting, or middle aged women who have sold everything and moved into a caravan, or the growing communities that are returning to farming and creating systems of barter and trade; some of us know the gig is up!  While what Brand says isn’t new, his conviction and fearlessness in welcoming the sweeping change is inspiring!  If you haven’t seen this video yet, I recommend every single second of it!  Like one of the first leaves to fall in autumn, could this be an indicator of the change to come?

A Disturbing Message Across Time & Culture

Oct 13, 13 A Disturbing Message Across Time & Culture

Posted by in Blog, Lifestyle

The United States Department of Energy is currently designing a project in the desert of New Mexico.  It’s a dump site where they plan to dump and store over 500,000 barrels of radio active waste.  The waste is being drilled 1/3 of a mile down into a “geophysical-inert thick salt formation”.  This waste will be considered dangerous for up to 10,000 years. One of the few positives to come out of this story is the fact that the government has done extensive research to try and design a specific architecture around the site.  The purpose of the design is to warn future generations and cultures that the site is dangerous and should not be disturbed.  10,000 years is a long time to wait, and at least the designers of the project have accepted that they don’t know what could happen between now and then.  They wanted to leave behind a timeless message that a band of humans coming across in the future would understand and stay away from – regardless of massive language or cultural changes. In trying to go beyond written language, there has been interesting work done in the understanding of archetypes and how humans feel about their surroundings.  In a newsletter article titled: “An Architecture of Peril” requirements and suggestions have been laid out for creating a landscape that will warn people away from the certain doom that would await them if they were to disturb the site. I highly recommend reading the full article.  It made me think of the messages that ancient cultures might have left for us, and our own efficacy in interpreting them.  But I was also intrigued by the recommendations and whether or not I thought an ancient culture would be able to figure it out.  For example, the article recommends obviously that nothing with moving parts will endure, and that metal may be scavenged for future uses. All the components of the site must be able to last for thousands of years with no maintenance....

Bee Pollen – A New Super Food

Oct 06, 13 Bee Pollen – A New Super Food

Posted by in Blog, Farms Food & Locations

Bee Pollen is the newest holistic super food to baffle scientists and nutritionists alike.  Bee pollen is NOT a by-product of honey.  Rather, while bees fly around collecting nectar, they simultaneously collect flower pollen in ‘pockets’ on their back legs and feed it to the baby bees back at the hive.  These nuggets of compressed flower pollen can be collected by bee keepers and are an incredibly rich source of nutrients.  In fact, many people calling it ‘nature’s most complete food’.  At 40% protein, bee pollen has more protein than beef, eggs or cheese of equal weight, and is also the richest known source of rutin.  Its also full of free amino acids and vitamins. There is also an undiscovered ‘magic’ to this superfood.  Scientists have created bee pollen ‘simulations’ containing all the nutrients and amino acids present in the natural bee pollen – and yet when this was fed to bees they slowly died.  So there is something present in the natural bee pollen that science has yet to quantify.  This idea appeals to people who have been placing a lot of health claims on the little food.  Bee Pollen is currently being used by some cancer patients who claim that the bee pollen has increased their immune system, allowed them to maintain weight and appetite during chemo therapy as well as avoid some of the worst side effects of that treatment.  While this has yet to be confirmed through formal scientific channels, one study has been done which found a dramatic decrease in tumours in prone mice who were fed the pollen.  (See this link to read about some of those studies.)  There are additional claims of bee pollen being effective in managing addictions, and improving allergies. Bee Pollen isn’t inexpensive.  It takes each bee about a month to collect only a teaspoon of the pollen nuggets and so a large jam jar will cost you anywhere from $25-$30.  However this is less expensive than many good vitamin and mineral supplements –...
