How to Bounce Back – Big or Small

Yesterday, I spent approximately 2 hours listening to Sonia Ricotti’s webinar on bouncing back from any and everything ailing your life that’s preventing you from experiencing the only things that matter:

~GRATITUDE
~JOY
~LOVE
~PEACE

Without these 4 Foundational Factors, life is generally filled with pain, sadness, fear and misery. And who ISN’T tired of that vicious cycle, leading you down the dark path of No Man’s Land. Ugh.

Now, I’ve fallen off my webinar “game,” as I am not comfortable promoting anything that I do not believe will truly help us on a WHOLE level. Trust, I’ve had countless emails from my motivators and “Master Teachers” encouraging me to embark on this or that program’s journey or offerings… etc. etc. etc. BUT. After a short while of listening to some of the recordings, it became very clear to me that they were just not offering ENOUGH.

So, how is Sonia Ricotti’s webinar any different, you ask? I’ll let YOU be the judge and determine for yourself if this is a journey you envision yourself going through and coming out on top in the end.

I know I have been thinking more and more frequently about what it means to truly motto-ize “the wealth of health” and how I can better encourage myself and those I affect to BE about the concept.

SEE the concept.

Take in all the “bad” and agree to only contribute to the “good.” Always listen and speak little – you will realize how much you’re appreciated for this. Happiness is a life-long journey to self-achievement, especially as you re-train yourself to fulfill within that which could not be fulfilled externally.

BE the concept.

The value in self-reflection is nearly inconceivable, because of the constant focus to be cookie-cutter copies of misconception in our fictitious “reality” programs. Without self-reflection there is no self-awareness and chaos and confusion ensues.

LIVE the concept.

 Taking ownership of your actions, choices and decisions and ensuring that they are a reflection of all things Peaceful… makes the logistics of it all that much simpler to attain. Focus on adding good and powerful energy in your realm rather than “removing” bad and draining sources. In time, that which appeared so *bad* before shows and proves otherwise!


Every sentient being began their journey the same in this life. Whether you crawled, scooched or dragged yourself to get where you needed and wanted to be, it took a lot of effort to achieve anything before you learned to walk. There is no need to fear or be hesitant to crawl/scooch/drag before you walk right.

One thing I constantly hear is that “I’m too old to start over!” There is no age-limit on learning or growing, so why hinder yourself with such a thought? You can DO or you can NOT DO. The simpler it’s seen, the simpler it is.

While the saying “Misery loves company” stands true, the fact that Love leaves no one Untouched stands more powerful than the former.


See the Love that exists in You.

Be the One to define the times.

Live like Tomorrow is Today.

Combat with the “Common” Cold

In this day and age it is a pretty well-known fact that it can be difficult in finding the Tried and True – whether it be in break-ups to make-up, long-lasting products built without the factor of planned obsolescence or something as seemingly simple as a cure for what ever ails us. This can be most frustrating when dealing with frequent and recurring ailments, such as the “common” cold.

How is it *common* yet there is no *common* cure?

I run the risk of asking this question, knowing that there are a plethora of responses like: “let it run its course” and “drink lots of fluids” and many more I opt to overlook. To me, those are not cures or solutions, as it can take a “common” cold a ridiculous amount of days to “run its course.” And when you’re not well enough to consider doing much of anything, how does running to the bathroom every hour or so (give or take 30 minutes) from “drinking lots of fluids” encourage a quick recovery?

I have come to realize that there is one simple cure/solution for combating the “common” cold.

Listen to Your Body!

It is not unforeseen that the body alerts you when it has come to recognize the changes in season, the steady drop in temperature and how it chooses to deal with these effects. You can feel the difference almost instantaneously in your bones, your muscles, sometimes even your nerves. And due to our inclination to always be on the move, we generally ignore these signals and push our bodies to a breaking point…

Then we wonder: “How did I get sick?

We bundled up every day we went out, we made sure to wear hats, gloves and thick socks (most of the time) and we ate lots of warm foods. However, we never stopped to consider that it may be best to expose ourselves a bit less to freezing (and below) temperatures and stay indoors bundled up with an array of blankets and a few cups of hot tea (no, not joe). We didn’t factor in that spending a bit more “ME” time with the self and spoiling the body with such things as sleep, hot foot baths and gentle massages would allow and provide for great circulation, relaxation and much needed stimulation.

While we have a tendency to take a few of those “personal sick days” off from work in the warm summer months, we ought to reconsider switching things up and relishing in that time during the winter season. It can really pay off in the end, most notably by ensuring a healthier, happier body that can ultimately stay “on the move.”


As I mentioned curling up with a few cups of hot tea, consider this Tried and True Tea Blend Recipe shared by the Vegetarian Health Institute:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup dried echinacea leaves
  • 1/4 cup dried peppermint leaves
  • 1/4 cup dried lemon balm leaves
  • 3 Tbsp dried elder berries OR 1/4 cup dried elder flowers

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a glass jar and shake gently to combine. Seal jar tightly. Store your Cold and Flu Tea away from heat and light for up to a year. This blend will make approximately 24 cups of tea.

To Make One Cup of Tea:

  • 1 cup of filtered water
  • 2 tsp Cold and Flu Tea blend
  • Green stevia for sweetener, if desired

Add tea blend to tea infuser or tea ball. Bring water to a boil, remove from heat. Pour water into mug and add tea. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Add green stevia (if using) and stir until dissolved. Drink up to 3 cups of tea per day as needed.

When the season first hits (which may be the case for the mid and east coasts right now!) I recommend having 2-3 cups of this blend daily for at least one week. You can supplement for other equally effective herbs [like Coriander, Garlic, Ginger, Goldenseal, Lemon+Honey, Mullein or Sage] or use the ones listed above singularly throughout the next week or two utilizing the same dosage. Continue alternating throughout the entire season.

Also, consider a foot bath (you can purchase a large bucket for under $3 from most dollar stores) with a nice portion of epsom salts. Make sure it’s hot enough to handle and soak for at least 20 minutes. Castor oil up afterward to encourage that much needed circulation, and make sure it’s not diluted. Lastly, be mindful of how and what you eat. Don’t be concerned about “fattening” up for the winter; focus on lots of Greens, Fruits and Vegetables. If you can home-make your dishes, I highly recommend doing so; it helps to better monitor what you’re eating. The key: The Fresher, The Better!

Combating the “common” cold starts with Listening to Your Body… if your body is down, you are down, so focus on staying Up.

Like a Fine Perfume…


“Happiness is like Perfume;
you can’t pour it on somebody else
without getting a few drops on yourself.”

– James Van Der Zee, Photographer


There have been countless mantras and mottos I have created and adopted, particularly as a coping mechanism in dealing with this Crazy/Beautiful thing called Life. I am challenged by my own mantras, my own thoughts on a daily basis …and more frequently. It – of course – provides for its many frustrations, but I’m content with this e-motion, as it is all a result of my effort to love myself… because liking myself just honestly isn’t enough.


There have been countless faces and spaces that I have taken on – created and adopted – simply for the sake of attempting to please others who say they “love you for you” when they quietly/silently mean they “don’t love you for you.” Playing make-believe is a lot of work, especially when you have no clue that you are doing just that! There is no love in being who you are not, naturally, at all times.


There have been countless sacrifices I have endured and made to temporarily appease others …

When do people ever find peace in the natural expression of themselves?

Ultimately, I learned that I can cater and submit to any and every demand and request – and at the end of the day – still nobody is HAPPY.

So what exactly am I sacrificing SO MUCH for?


Happiness in ME is
ALL
I ever need…

And I care not
for those who disagree.

❤ As it is like the Finest Perfume. ❤

~It allows for me to provide fuel support to my loved ones (when I can share, hehehe) so that they may put their best foot forward in sharing their *loving* energy.
~It boosts my energy to make positive and conscious efforts to make sustainable choices – in my food selection and purchasing any other “goods.”
~It allows for me to be fully aware of what I am putting into my body – particularly in Creation Mode.
~It provides total happiness to my Heart which always enjoys a warm embrace.

Organic & GMO-Friendly..?

Recently, I was motivated and prompted to initiate some research regarding large (and small) corporations making extreme efforts to resist GMO labeling. Honestly, as I have made it a mission within my life to ensure that I am aware of the ever-growing GMO crisis, I was NOT surprised to see that this list has grown. However, I did unfortunately stumble upon some serious news I found necessary to share.

Myth #1: Organic foods are grown, manufactured and/or produced by small and large companies that do NOT use GMOs.

Myth #2: Corporations that support genetic modification (GMO) of food are NOT in the business of growing, manufacturing and/or producing Organic foods.

Myth #3: If a corporation has business in Organic foods, they are NOT lobbying to have GMOs hidden.

Truths: USDA Organic labeled foods are NOT 100% Organic, allowing small and large corporations to “bypass” ethics and grow, manufacture and/or produce foods that can have <10% genetically modified ingredients and still be considered “Organic.”
