Growth, yummy cauliflower, your song, money and fun, and Abraham


PICK FOR THE DAY:

TIPS FOR THE DAY:

# 1 – Some great looking and sounding recipes using cauliflower….

http://www.rawfor30days.com/blog/2-scrumptious-new-ways-to-eat-cauliflower/

5/4/13 Note: I tried the 1st recipe the other day and loved it…ate the whole thing in one sitting. The “sauce” is great….could be used on a variety of things or as a salad dressing, especially on a nice, crisp spinach salad. Next time I will make a double recipe!

# 2 – A great tradition! May we all remember our song and find people who are willing to sing it with us, to us, and for us!

A Child’s Song By Alan Dana CohenThere is a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor from when they are conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. And when a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and she listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come. And after she’s heard the song of this child, she comes back to the man who will be the child’s father, and teaches it to him. And then, when they make love to physically conceive the child, some of that time they sing the song of the child, as a way to invite it. And then, when the mother is pregnant, the mother teaches that child’s song to the midwives and the old women of the village, so that when the child is born, the old women and the people around her sing the child’s song to welcome it. And then, as the child grows up, the other villagers are taught the child’s song. If the child falls, or hurts its knee, someone picks it up and sings its song to it. Or perhaps the child does something wonderful, or goes through the rites of puberty, then as a way of honoring this person, the people of the village sing his or her song. In the African tribe there is one other occasion upon which the villagers sing to the child. If at any time during his or her life, the person commits a crime or aberrant social act, the individual is called to the center of the village and the people in the community form a circle around them. Then they sing their song to them. The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment; it is love and the remembrance of identity. When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another. And it goes this way through their life. In marriage, the songs are sung, together. And finally, when this child is lying in bed, ready to die, all the villagers know his or her song, and they sing—for the last time—the song to that person. You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song and sing it well. You may feel a little warbly at the moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home. —

# 3 – In my 4/18 post I inadvertantly used the link in Tip #2 again in Tip # 3 as the link to a great article by The Wealthy Spirit author Chellie Campbell on money and fun.

I’ve since corrected the error, so people visiting that page now will be directed to the right place. But I wanted to be sure that those of you who viewed the page previously had a chance to read it, too, so am using it as a tip again today. Plus, it ties in so nicely with today’s Abraham quote (Tip # 5)!

# 5 – Joy your way to joy!

“Life is supposed to be fun. You said, “I’ll go forth and choose. I’ll look at the data, and I’ll say yes to this and yes to this and yes to this; and I’ll paint a picture of the things that I want, and I’ll vibrate about them because that’s what I’m giving my attention to. And the Universe will respond to my vibration. And then I’ll stand in a new place where a whole new batch of yeses are available, and I’ll say yes to this and yes to this and yes to this.” You did not say, “I’ll go forth and struggle into joy,” because from your Nonphysical Perspective you know it is vibrationally not possible. You cannot struggle to joy. Struggle and joy are not on the same channel. You joy your way to joy. You laugh your way to success. It is through your joy that good things come.”— Abraham

Glorious gardens, sprouting, radiation update, pep talk, mantra meditations, watch Fresh, and Abraham


PICKS OF THE DAY:

Keukenhof, Netherlands….the world’s largest flower garden. WOW!

 

Another pick is the free 21 Day Mantra Meditation Journey being offered by Deva Primal and Miten. I’m loving this daily time for centering and stillness. The event started a couple of days ago, but it looks like you can still access the recordings of any days you might have missed… or want to revisit (I have been listening to each twice so far) Check it out….time for everyone to go “om.” :-)

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1- Thinking of growing your own sprouts? You may find this informative…

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/04/08/eating-sprouts.aspx?e_cid=20130408_DNL_art_1&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20130408ProdTest3

# 2 – Even though mainstream media has seemed to have more or less forgotten about Fukushima, here’s some things you may want to be aware of…

http://www.naturalnews.com/039828_Fukushima_radiation_media_blackout.html

http://www.naturalnews.com/039924_sea_lions_radiation_California.html

BTW, I mentioned in a previous post that I recently discovered Sea Clear by Shaman Shack, an organic, unpasteurized, non-GMO fermented kelp chlorella miso superfood (also contains tumeric, raw apple cider vinegar and black pepper) that initially looked very unappetizing to me (it took me 2 mos. after ordering it to finally give it a try), but I ended up absolutely loving it. That it is so good for you and helps w/ detoxing heavy metals and radiation (the reasons I initially bought it) are just icing on the cake. Apparently this recipe is based on what the survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki ate to protect and regain their health.

You can get it at Raw Food World and it’s on special right now, so be sure to choose the lower price of the product (plus, I just ordered the 3 pack and saved even more). AND if you use code RAWFOOD155 at check out before the end of April, you can save even more with 15.5% off your entire order. How does it get any better than that?!

# 3 – Your pep talk for the day?

# 4 – For your viewing pleasure…an invite from FRESH…

Here at FRESH, we’re always looking for ways to build the good food movement and reach a tipping point where sustainable food is the rule, not the exception. So to celebrate Earth Day this year, we’d like to continue spreading the word with an exciting initiative: FRESH is available for viewing online for FREE! For a limited time (we do need to pay our bills after all), you can access the full-length film from your desktop. The movie will be available for one week, from Monday, April 22nd through Tuesday, April 30th, so don’t wait to watch! To access the movie, simply click below.

# 5 – And if reading about Fukushima and radiation is a little unsettling to you, a little “advice” from Abraham…

It is of great value for you to give your conscious attention to what you specifically want, otherwise you can be swept up by the influence of that which surrounds you. You are bombarded by the stimulation of thought. And so, unless you are setting forth the thought that is important to you, you can be stimulated by another’s thought that may or may not be important to you.

— Abraham

Earth Day, meteor shower, praise & gratitude, Being, mighty miso, and Abraham


PICKS FOR THE DAY:

And ways to make every day Earth Day (although, personally, I am against the CFLs mentioned….from all I’ve read they seem to do more harm overall than good)

http://www.care2.com/causes/top-10-ways-to-make-every-day-earth-day.html

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – 

(FYI, Gratitudelog.com is a great place to keep you mindful of praising and celebrating. Be sure and stop by and say “hi” (do a search for Zirah) if you become a member.)

# 2 – Food for thought…

Self-worth is knowing that you already have everything you need and
that you are the person you’ve been waiting for. There is nothing
to reach. There is only BEING and LIVING who you are.

You are worthy because you are one with All That Is.  You don’t
need “self-improvement” because you cannot improve who you are –
your Authentic Self.

The goal in life is not to BECOME who you are, but to ACCEPT who
you are is enough. Said another way, if where you are today isn’t
good enough, then nothing you can do or achieve will ever be good
enough. You can’t be fixed because you are not broken. –Dr. Robert Anthony

(FYI, right now Dr. Anthony is offering 60% off his Secret of Deliberate Creation program, plus a free report on how to make your mind a “money magnet.” You can check out my “What’s New” page for more details.)

# 3 – Have been a fan of miso for a long time, but have never thought of using it in creamier/heavier recipes…

Cream of Miso, Shiitake, Sea Vegetables

We typically think of miso soup as very light and often a good beginning or end to a meal. However, miso’s deep, nutty flavor lends itself well to heavier and richer preparations, especially creamy dressings and soups.

from Everyday Raw Express

BTW, I recently discovered Sea Clear by Shaman Shack, an organic, unpasteurized, non-GMO fermented kelp chlorella miso superfood (also contains tumeric, raw apple cider vinegar and black pepper) that initially looked very unappetizing to me (it took me 2 mos. after ordering it to finally give it a try), but I ended up absolutely loving it. That it is so good for you and helps w/ detoxing heavy metals and radiation (the reasons I initially bought it) are just icing on the cake. You can get it at Raw Food World and if you use code RAWFOOD155 at check out before the end of April you get 15.5% off your entire order. Also check out their at-cost specials. Hdigabtt and weip?!

# 4- The 2013 Food Revolution Summit, a  free event to help you be healthier…

From April 27th-May 5th, John and Ocean Robbins will be personally interviewing 24 of the world’s leading voices in movements for healthy, sustainable, humane and conscious food for all. You can sign up here.

# 5 – And the good news from Abraham….

Take the worthiness that is yours, and let the “Fairies of the Universe” assist you. Stop taking so much responsibility upon yourself, and live happily ever after. Shorten that crevasse between where you are and where you want to be, on every subject, to now, now, now, now, now. Ride the wave. Just pluck the fruit… You don’t have to be the one who puts it in the ground any more. You can just skip across the top of things and pluck the fruit of all of the things you want. “Oh, fruit. Oh, delicious this, delicious this, delicious this, delicious this.” In other words, it’s all right there for you; it’s ready for you to receive it as fast and as soon as you will vibrationally let it in.— Abraham

It was about money, the body and receiving and it’s only 30 minutes long, so easier to fit in your schedule than all these hour and a half presentations being offered by everyone under the sun these days. I really enjoyed it….found it stimulating, enlightening and helpful. Sometimes less really is more. :-)

# 5 – An astrology update from Chris Flisher of chrisflisher.com.  Sounds like we may be in for a wild ride…

Week of April 15, 2013

The third week of April brings an enormous, almost unbelievable, contribution to history. The number of significant, impactful events that have occurred at this time of year is startling. The Lincoln Assassination (4/14/1865), the sinking of the Titanic (4/14/1912), the Oklahoma bombing (4/20/1995), Waco, Texas (4/20/1993), the birthday of Adolf Hitler (4/20/1889) all occurred in and around the third week of April. Simply incredible. This year brings a certain drama with it as well. A Full Moon Lunar eclipse will occur next week on the 25th, but we could be feeling the impact as soon as this week. We will witness the Sun and Mars entering Taurus on Saturday as Mercury and Uranus align while squaring Pluto at the same time. The conjoining of Mercury and Uranus brings an electrical potential of the highest order. Since Uranus typically vibrates at a higher octave of Mercury, that same sort of sparky, communicative, impulsivity exists. All of this activity sets the stage for a full Moon lunar eclipse next week at 6 degrees Scorpio.
 
# 6 – And a little “mind-twister” from Abraham…

You don’t have to go where you don’t want to be to get where you want to be. You can go from where you are to where you want to be.— Abraham

# 4 – Indoor farming! An innovative trend beginning to take root (pun intended :-))…

# 5 – Food for thought…

“The only difference between the sage and yourself is you see the world and you identify with it. You think it’s real. A sage sees the world and he knows it’s a superimposition upon Consciousness. So he identifies with Consciousness.” – Robert Adams

Befriend yourself, more on diatomaceous earth, buyer beware, muselist.org, Mother Nature, and more!


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Self love is the most unselfish thing you can do for yourself and everyone benefits in the process!

 

# 2 – Diatomaceous earth is one of my favorite alternative health remedies because it’s so simple to use, has multiple benefits, and is very inexpensive. I’ve featured several articles about it before, but this one mentions several uses and precautions I wasn’t aware of…

http://www.naturalnews.com/039326_diatomaceous_earth_detox_mercury.html

(FYI, one place to get diatomaceous earth is Raw Food World ; they also have additional information on its benefits and how to use it, PLUS it’s one of their “At Cost Specials” through the end of April. Yea!)

# 3 – Buyer beware/aware! You may not be getting what you paid for….

http://www.naturalnews.com/039325_food_fraud_pomegranate_olive_oil.html

Radiation, the thyroid, and iodine, iodine, iodine: Part III


Here’s Part III of the information and tips on radiation, the thyroid and iodine. For Part I (tips 1-6 of this series), see my 8/16/12 post ….and for Part II (tips 7-11), see 9/8/12.

# 12 – Using bentonite clay for dealing with heavy metals, radiation, and more…

http://www.naturalnews.com/036972_bentonite_clay_heavy_metals_detox.html

I like the idea of putting the clay in a pillowcase or something similar when taking a clay bath so that you don’t have to worry about clogged drains. Also, EvenBetterNow.com offers a “clog-free” detox clay. And if you’d like more info about bentonite clay….

http://www.naturalnews.com/037159_bentonite_clay_radiation_detoxification.html

# 13 – An update on the radiation situation and ways to deal with the side-effects naturally…

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/09/04/fukushima-radiation.aspx?e_cid=20120904_DNL_artNew_2

FYI, whey and seaweed, two of the things recommended for off-setting the effects of radiation, are available from Emerald Essentials in the form of their Action Whey and Emerald Sea supplements. I have used both personally and highly recommend checking them out. Use kinesiology or some form of self-testing to see if they are something your body wants or needs. I’ve gotten to where I self-test before buying any kind of health products these days and my body always tests strong for these two items. Emerald Essentials is having a special on their vanilla Action Whey until 2/28, where you get 2 free when you order 6.

# 14 – This mentions something I hadn’t read before, a link between fluoride in your water and thyroid dysfunction…

It also mentions the presence of fluoride turning up more and more in our foods. Did you know there’s a high amount found these days in brewed black tea?!

http://www.naturalhealth365.com/food/fluoride.html

More on the link between fluoride, the thyroid and iodine…

# 17 – An insightful blog post by Dr. Nikolas Hedberg about the importance of selenium and its link to thyroid health and iodine deficiency…
