It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post anything. This is how the last month has treated me.
I set up a new page for my meditations that I’ll soon be making available to everyone. Check it out!
Chakra Healing on Demand Seal
The human body is a fantastic machine. Awake or asleep your heart automatically pumps and circulates your blood, your lungs keep you breathing, your digestive systems digests the food you eat to give you the nutrients you need, and your body completes many other vital processes without you lifting a finger. Your body also has the phenomenal ability to bounce back and heal itself. Most of the time. Unfortunately, you may get to a point in your life when your body can no-longer work optimally.
Constant bombardments of stress, particularly sudden and intensely stressful situations, negative beliefs and thoughts that keep you bogged down, and many other daily problems can knock the body’s self-regulating mechanisms out of whack making it harder for your body to do its job. These complications can result in a decline of your energy and have a significant effect on the health of your body, mind, and spirit. Not only does an unbalanced overstressed lifestyle cause irritation, anger, and outbursts. Stress can cause you to suffer from headaches, stomach aches, muscle tension, and pain. It may lead you to feel anxious, restless, and depressed, or you may even start overeating, under-eating or reaching for alcohol or drugs for relief.
If you’re looking to clear your mind and reconnect with your inner self-meditation could be just the tool you need to calm down and enhance your awareness. Guided meditations can be a great tool to add to your toolbox.
Some of the benefits:
Meditation can be grounding and relaxing. Meditation can clear your brain of unwanted thoughts. Meditation can lift your spirit up to higher levels of awareness. Meditation can reduce stress. The best part: the only thing you need to do is listen and relax.
Are you willing to take 10-15 minutes out of your day to take care of your inner self? Once you get into the habit of meditating the benefits you’ll experience will make you wonder why you didn’t start this great habit sooner.
Understanding Chakras is an integral part of Reiki and energy healing. It’s believed that each of us has Chakra ‘wheels’ at the main energy centers in our bodies, which ‘turn’ as the life force energy moves through us. We have seven main Chakras, with each one relating to a specific location, function, and color. Reiki Masters can provide significant benefits to clients when applying Chakra balancing. By working on the Chakra areas, Reiki Masters can get the Universal Life Force Energy flowing which causes the Chakra wheels to start moving, removing slow or stuck energy. All of the tools you need to clear the clutter are within you!
Chakra balancing is an integral part of energy work. It helps us stay connected to the life force within us. When our chakras are blocked, our energy can become stagnant. Blocked chakras can affect us in many forms. Mental and physical illness or anger and depression are just a few of the ways stagnant energy can manifest. That being said~
I’m now going to take you on a journey to open your chakras, feel better, and sweep away the negative energies creating these blocks.
I managed to get some kind of virus, and it was not the common cold, though it did feel like it started out as the common cold. I was able to push through the first stage of the virus and I got my YouTube account up plus I started working on my meditations for YouTube.
These are so easy to make you’ll wonder why you hadn’t tried them before:)
I did puree up some frozen strawberries and I mixed the strawberries with cream cheese since I didn’t have any coconut cream on hand.
*She also has a recipe for avocado chocolate cookies I’d like to try*
I love to munch on beet chips sometimes and normally I buy hummus at the store, but this time I wanted to try my hand at making hummus, again. I still can’t get it quite as smooth as I’d like. It may be time to buy a new blender!
I did use smoked paprika instead of cayenne pepper
I’ve added a recipe page! I will be posting recipes that I make, find, and love on this page. Eating healthy doesn’t need to be hard. Use this page as a guide. Change up the recipes. Have fun!
*But keep them healthy*
Fruit & Mint Salad
I’m a big fan of buying frozen fruit. I can use it on a whim and it doesn’t go bad if I forget about it. Using frozen fruit for a fruit salad was a new experience for me, but the salad came out sublime.
Minty Fruit Salad
1lb frozen Mango, blueberry, and strawberry frozen fruit blend
1/3 cup packed mint, chopped (NOT 1/4 cup chopped mint)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
4 Tablespoons honey
Defrost frozen fruit in the refrigerator overnight.
Mix the defrosted fruit in a large bowl once defrosted add and mint.
Stir together the lime juice and honey in a small bowl (it takes a few minutes to get the honey to dissolve in the lime juice, then pour over fruit and berries. Gently stir the ingredients together and place in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes before serving. The longer the mixture sits the better the salad gets.
This one looks so good I needed to re-post it! And of course, try it when I have the time:)
Hulling strawberries creates a large cavity that’s ideal for making stuffed strawberries, with creamy goat cheese, basil, and pistachios. Serve the berries as an elegant appetizer or a satisfying snack, one serving (3 berries) offers loads of antioxidants and 9 grams of protein.
Chèvre and Basil Stuffed Strawberries
1 pint (12 ounces/340g) organic strawberries
4 ounces (113g) creamy chèvre (goat cheese), room temperature
1 tablespoon finely chopped basil leaves, plus 12 small leaves for garnish
1 pinch each salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup (1 ounce/28g) shelled pistachios, finely chopped
Wash the strawberries. Using a paring knife, hull the strawberries, creating a cone-shaped pocket in the top of each berry. Pat dry with paper towels.
In a small bowl, blend the cheese, chopped basil, salt, and pepper with a fork until combined. Spoon the cheese mixture into the bottom corner of a zip-top bag. Cut off a little of the corner of the bag to create a makeshift pastry bag. Pipe the cheese mixture into the strawberries.
Dip the top of each berry in the chopped nuts and garnish with one of the reserved basil leaves. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 4 hours.
