“Bucky Knows Best”…again, community, EMFs, oil cleanse, oil pulling, Parenting With Presence, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – A few days ago I put together a post that featured a quote from Buckminster Fuller and tagged the tip “Bucky Knows Best.” I guess that would make this “Bucky Knows Best: Part Deux.” :-)

# 2 – The importance of community in the evolutionary process (this ties in nicely with Tip # 1 :-))…

When you break up the individuals from a community into individual units, they become disempowered because it’s the collective consciousness and the collective energy of the group from which power comes. The principal driving force that lies before us, is that we have to recognize the nature of community as the evolutionary step that we just took a step backwards from in the last century” ~Bruce Lipton quoted from his appearance on Healing With The Masters

We can’t do this by ourselves. Evolution is not a solo journey. It is essential to do it in community.” ~ Hope Fitzgerald

# 4 – The Shift Network is sponsoring a free event many of you may be interested in…

It’s the Parenting With Presence Summit, hosted by Susan Stiffelman, the author of Parenting without Power Struggles and parenting columnist for the Huffington Post. This special event features more than 20 of the world’s leading parenting experts and thought-leaders—exploring how to grow as a parent and raise more joyful, resilient and authentic children.

This free event takes place online, June 4th – 7th, so you can listen from the comfort of your home. When you register you’ll have access to profound conversations as Susan connects with Marianne Williamson, Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, don Miguel Ruiz, John Gray, Gary Zukav, Marci Shimoff, Congressman Tim Ryan and many more.

No matter what your relationship is with the children in your life, this summit will provide you with information that should have come in the “owner’s manual” that you wish accompanied every child—but doesn’t! Get all the details here.

# 5- I’ve always thought it isn’t good to get too caught up in the gender thing or being male or female. Seems to often polarize people, instead of create a sense of Oneness. We are all composed of both male and female energies. Here’s Abe’s take on things…

“Gender identity” is inconsequential from an Energy standpoint. In other words, when we view anything that is physical, we see the Energy of it, and we note that the Energy of what you call male and female is equal in all things.—Abraham

Wi-fi experiment, interesting point of view, chocolate walnut ice cream, Anita Moorjani and Abraham


TIPS FOR THE DAY:

# 1- Here’s a blog post that focuses on one of the most helpful tools from Access Consciousness…..seeing everything as just an “interesting point of view.” This one simple tool and the shift in consciousness it provides can be life-changing. Really!

http://strategicboardessentials.com/blog/2012/12/26/interesting-point-of-view

# 2 – Wow, if you use a cell phone (I think I’m the only person left on the planet who doesn’t) or have wi-fi in your house or work environment, here’s something you should see…

BTW, be sure to read my blog post titled EMFs, Your Health & Vibes Up for some ingenious ways to help off-set radiation from cell phones, wi-fi, cars, etc.

# 3 – Check out this yummy and nutritious dessert recipe I recently featured on my Self-help Health blog that could actually help you prevent Alzheimer’s.  Sort of like having your cake (in this case ice cream) and eating it, too? :-)

http://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2013/05/27/ice-cream-good-nutrition-yes/

# 4 – Don’t worry, be happy…

“When we’re true to ourselves, we become instruments of truth for the planet. Because we’re all connected, we touch the lives of everyone around us, who then affect others. Our only obligation is to be the love we are and allow our answers to come from within in the way that’s most appropriate for us.

Finally, I can’t stress enough how important it is to enjoy yourself and not take yourself or life too seriously. One of the biggest flaws with many traditional spiritual systems is that they give you such a somber outlook. Although you know that I abhor creating doctrines, if I ever had to create a set of tenets for a spiritual path to healing, number one on my list would be to make sure to laugh as often as possible throughout every single day—and preferably laugh at myself. This would be hands down over and above any form of prayer, meditation, chanting, or diet reform. Day-to-day problems never seem as big when viewed through a veil of humor and love.

In this age of information technology, we’re bombarded with news seemingly at the speed of light. We’re living in an age of high stress and fear, and in the midst of trying to protect ourselves from everything we think is “out there,” we’ve forgotten to enjoy ourselves and to take care of what’s inside.

Our life is our prayer. It’s our gift to this universe, and the memories we leave behind when we someday exit this world will be our legacy to our loved ones. We owe it to ourselves and to everyone around us to be happy and to spread that joy around.

If we can go through life armed with humor and the realization that we are love, we’ll already be ahead of the game. Add a box of good chocolates into the mix, and we’ve really got a winning formula!” Anita Moorjani from Dying To Be Me ♥

# 5 – And a little stimulation from Abraham to end on…

“We would never move forward in the face of negative emotion. There are many people who would teach you otherwise. They say you’ve got to face fear to get over it. And all they do is desensitize themselves to the point that they get themselves into situations where they have no idea what’s going on, and the end of them comes rather abruptly… And then everyone calls them brave.”—Abraham

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.

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.

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

# 6 – And Abraham on the nature of reality…

“Is it reality, or is it not reality? All things are reality. Even if only one is imagining it, it is a reality in that the thought has been offered and someone, who has the ability to translate that vibration, will perceive it. It must be fair to say that anything that can be perceived must be reality. Because, as creators, your reality depends upon what you are willing to imagine and allow.”— Abraham

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?!
