44 Days ’til el Camino: Diet

cook-366875_1920.jpg

A domino effect? Sometimes when one thing changes. . .  it all changes.  Changing my exercise is affecting my diet!

I’ve been bothered by my diet for quite some time.  Though I probably eat healthier food that in the typical U.S. diet,  my eating times were erratic, and often I would not eat enough. Sometimes a lack of food sooner would lead to unhealthy binges later.

I’m finally starting to implement a plan.  Breakfast is eggs and potatoes.  Morning snack is a Shaklee shake.  Lunch is either a large salad or hummus and cheese sandwich (with spinach and using gluten-free bread).  Snack is nuts/peanut butter/cheese — not sure what else yet.  Dinner is either bean tacos, chicken (on wing night), spaghetti, or a dinner mixing some of these ingredients: cous cous, rice, beans, and lentils. That’s the plan to start.

My most recent intuitive health analysis said the following about my physical health and food:

“We see optimal health within the physical body. We see there is an understanding that this one has in regards to how to feed the body and what to feed the body.  This one is balanced in this regard, and we do not see much change needed there.”

It went on to suggest just more iron and iodine. So, I have since been more consistently taking my supplements and looking for ways to add more iron to a mostly vegetarian diet.

Yesterday I noticed a few other things related to diet.  I had been marveling that I hadn’t had any stomach cramping/gas for some time, and then . . . soon after I did!  I reflected back on what I’d eaten differently and concluded it must have been some chocolate I’d eaten.  I’d had similar stomach rumblings in response to chocolate in the past.  Bummer!  Less or no chocolate, then.  Then, my bank was having an anniversary celebration, and I had one mini cupcake and an Oreo cookie.  20 minutes later I felt an energy drop in my system.  Yikes!  Was it the sugar?  The breading?  Probably both.

Will this mean an end to sweets for me?  Probably not.  But I will be mindful of my choices, aware of the possible consequences of my decisions.  Maybe if I cut back on sugar I will finally embrace and eat the fruits I keep buying and not eating! 

A healthy diet has also been in my vision since last year.  Some things just take more time, I guess!  It gives me hope to keep the faith in my dreams.

Ending thought: While listening back to my last intuitive report, I came across a part that I realize I’ve been neglecting, and I thought it might help you as well.  It matches what’s been on my mind a lot this week, as I continue to reflect on judgement, acceptance, and neutrality. I was given these affirmations, advised to repeat them daily for a period of 3 months:

“Everything that occurs is for my benefit.  Every experience, every person, every interaction is here for my good.   I am fortunate to receive experiences that bring me joy.”

Much love, many blessings. ❤

Various Thoughts

ID-1009981

It’s been a while since I’ve written, and I really need to write.  So, here I go a ramblin’ a bit.  Gotta get the juices flowing again. . .

First of all, I’m tired.  It’s 11:35, and I should be in bed.  However, I have a lot that I wanted to accomplish, and I got pretty much all of it done.  There are a lot of exciting things happening this month, and I am really trying to put myself out there, get my face out there, take some activity toward my goals and toward being with people.

I actually enjoy my meditations now . . .  to the point that I don’t feel like it’s an “exercise.”  It’s actually a treat.  Well, I don’t feel this way ALL of the time, but more lately.  I’ve become more aware of my scattered brain, and I feel so at peace and centered when I do meditation and concentration exercises.

I’ve felt more at peace in general.  Before I kept thinking I was supposed to be doing something else.  Something BIG.  Lately I’ve come to respect the importance of the internal world.  I know that I am doing the work that I am supposed to be doing.  The environment doesn’t matter.  The circumstances don’t matter.  The activity is important but irrelevant.  I can complete the work anywhere.  And I am grateful to be involved in jobs and volunteer work that helps me reach my ideal: empowering others so that they may become self-empowered.

My latest life lesson is on the necessity of positivity.   I am receiving the message from all places.  The angel numbers all point me in that direction.  (A lot of 1’s with every combo — 2’s through 9’s!)  I listened to Abraham Hicks this week — same message.  Last night in Metaphysics class — same message.  There is a part of me that doesn’t want to give that up;  I have gotten very far by nitpicking.  I have been able to push myself pretty far and to help others by finding ways to improve.  But I realize I have taken it too far and that I sometimes suffer insecurity and from low self-worth.  So, to make this shift I am adopting the following thoughts/affirmations:

  • “I give myself permission to be positive.”
  • “There’s some great things going on here! (or There are some great things going on here!)”
  • “Everything is awesome!”
  • “What am I grateful for today?”

I want to change, and I want to manifest.  I believe it can happen.

Love and blessings to all of you beings of light. ❤

Elevate Your Thoughts!

ID-10033065

I have been told that I am powerful.  I know it to be true.  There is a power within all of us — and we are the creators of our lives!  Sometimes it’s easier to see the power of our negativity than our positive influence.  I’ve had some dark thoughts circulating recently, and I can actually feel the heaviness of them.  I feel them weighing me down.  Sometimes I can feel them darkening a space.  I resolved today to create the perpetual intention of love.  No matter what I’m doing, taking activity, speaking, teaching — whatever! — everything will have love behind it.  One of our activities during the workshop this past weekend was setting a goal of something to give that day, that week, that month, that year, etc.  For each spot, I put: LIGHT!  I’ve been projecting light.  Today I did it a few times throughout the day, to my students, to the world, and to those I knew I’d be interacting with.  It really does work.  It was a beautiful, connected day.

I have some pretty deeply entrenched “negative” thought patterns that I don’t want anymore.  I’m beginning to see the possibilities with optimism, excitement, and expectation. Wonderful things really do come to those who believe!  So, I’m going to catch those worries, those doubts, those FEARS and replace them with trust, faith, and love.

What are you giving this week? ❤

I want to be with people

I want to know lots and lots and lots of people!

I see myself laughing and conversing easily with them.

I am confident.  Strong posture, open stance.  Powerful, in a comfortable, welcoming way.

I care about them and remember the things that are important to them and their lives.

I spend time with them.

I am fully present with them.

They are all that matters in those moments.

We connect.

I am a healing presence.

People feel safe with me.

People feel at home with me.

When people are with me, they remember that they are loved — They are washed in love!

They remember that the universe supports them.

All they have to do is be who they are.

 

I will no longer be afraid.

I will no longer be self-conscious or insecure.

I will no longer worry about what I’m wearing or how I sound

or what facial expression I’m making.

I will not be full of nervous energy!

I will get things done.

I will not revert to helplessness.

I will complete on my own, take initiative, even in asking for help.

 

I organize events.

I bring people together.

We do fun things.

We do new things!

I am full of love, excited energy, and peace . . .

 

I am organized

I am comfortable in my own skin.

I take risks!

I make “mistakes”!

And I laugh and learn.

I learn from EVERYTHING!

 

I will not avoid out of fear.

I will not procrastinate out of fear.

 

I will see the world as my laboratory,

as my playhouse,

as my stage,

as my mission,

as my life’s work.

 

I will leave the world better than when I left it.

I will do what I’ve come here to do.

Thankfulness: Heavenly Angels and Earthly Angels

origin_4865331513

I feel so incredibly blessed this morning.  My goal is to feel this way at all times — so centered within myself that I exist in a constant state of bliss. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

The morning started with some dark clouds and the threat of rain.  I hoped for rain, actually; I anticipated the cleansing effects, physically, spiritually, mentally.  Now the sun creeps through the clouds — just as welcome a sight!

I know that I have all that I could ever need, and that my needs are always provided for.  Going forward, I wish to focus on these three ideas/affirmations:

  1.  I am abundant; there is always a silver lining; things always work out for me.
  2.  Emotional discomfort is as much a blessing as emotional peace — it signals an opportunity to push myself, to grow.
  3. I am growing and accomplishing wonderful new things every day!

Today I am particularly grateful to my heavenly angels and to my earthly ones (too many to count!).

To my earthly angels:

Thank you for all the “big” and “little” things you’ve done to support and encourage me.  Though I seek to be self-empowered, I know we are interconnected beings, and I see how much I have benefited from your open and loving hearts.  Don’t underestimate the power of your smile, your touch, that positive phrase, that helping hand, and that effort to reach out.  You are making a difference in my life and in the lives of others every day.  I am so grateful for you.  I want to learn to love and serve as you do.

To my heavenly angels:

Thank you for your continuous messages of guidance and comfort.  My most frequent combinations are 1’s/2’s and 4’s/1’s and 1’s/7’s these days.  As always, I turn to my favorite angel site: ANGEL NUMBERS — Joanne Sacred Scribes.

Messages of faith:

1’s and 2’s indicates that your thoughts are like seeds about to sprout. You are asked to ensure that the seeds you sow are of a positive and uplifting nature. 1’s and 2’s combined are a sign that things will go in your desired direction when you stay on a positive path. The message is to live with faith and trust.

Guidance on my choices:

1’s and 4’s indicate that the angels are emphasizing strongly that you remain aware of your thoughts and intentions at the moment. The angels counsel you to make a special wish as you are now in a position where you are able to manifest your thoughts. You are asked to ensure that your desires are for the highest good, as the old adage ‘careful what you wish for as you just may get it’ is relevant here.

Encouragement:

The 1 and 7 combination is a message that you are doing a great job and are to be commended for your efforts. You are on the right path in your life, so keep going along in this vain. The number combination of 1 and 7 is a sign that you have chosen your thoughts and actions well. You are reminded also that the emotion and attitude of ‘gratitude’ will speed the process of your manifestations, so remember to be thankful for all that the Universe provides.

Creation begins with gratitude!  I’ll remember to be grateful today and every day!  Thank you!!

Some Quick Dreams: Affirmations, Coffins, Parties, and Babies

I’ve been gone for quite some time as I’ve been involved in getting ready for graduation from the first cycle of the School of Metaphysics, and I’ve been preparing for Dream Awareness Weekend.  I miss posting.

Here is a quick summary of 3 dreams I’ve interpreted (with some advice) over the past month — though I’ve still been remembering my dreams pretty much every day!

Dream #1:

My friend is over.  She is sitting on the couch.  She mentions something about not being allergic.  I am surprised she’s not.  Room resembles parents’ basement.  I am sitting on the floor.  I think cats will probably come over.  Zelda does.

Interpretation:

At first I had no idea what this dream meant.  I was trying to figure out what aspect of me this friend represented.  Then I went back over the day before, and I remembered that I had tried using affirmations that day.  I realized that this person was a very supportive, affirming person, and that she had represented this part of myself that I had just used.  She had felt comfortable in my mind, not repelled, she was sticking around.

Dream #2:

Burying a coffin.  We want to bury it in this grassy area, but we know there are other coffins there.  We can see their shape in the ground. 

Interpretation and Application:

I was really stumped on this dream and got a lot of interesting ideas from a lot of different people.  The main idea is that the focus is death, which is change.  There is a part of me that has changed, and I am seeing other parts of me that have also changed.  Since I never see any bodies, I am not fully aware of exactly what has changed within me.  Again, I need to be still and conscious of what I’m going through during the day.  Then I can identify the changes going on within me.

Dream #3:

There are parties.  We go to one.  There are more, and I want to go.  (Halloweeen?) Costume party.  I am debating which to go to and whether or not to go.  I see posts about it on Facebook.  I’m trying to think of what to wear.  I’m hoping someone will go with me (my fiancee or sister?  not sure which).  But they don’t want to go.  (Someone texting me about it?)

Interpretation:

A part of me wants to get to know myself better, to try out new expressions of myself and to expand and to grow.  Another part of myself is ready to turn in, to rest and give myself time to withdraw and process.  I shared this dream in a dream workshop, and my teacher added that this is duality, and that it is a good thing.  There is a time for expanding and for contracting.  We need both.

Dream #4:

I knew I’d had twins (but I never saw them in the dream, in fact, by the end of the dream I realized I didn’t remember being pregnant, didn’t remember going into labor, etc).  Cindy asked me about the baby, and I was unable to give her much detail.  I thought one was a little chattier than the other.  It began to bother me that I knew nothing about the babies and that they weren’t even with me.  I wanted to get them.  I talked to my mom about breast feeding.  She was telling me not to worry, there were other options, and I was like “I haven’t even tried breastfeeding yet! Let me try and see if they even latch on!”

Interpretation and Application:

The focus of the dream is the babies.  I want to care for them, I want to nurture them, and feed them, but I have no idea where they are.  I asked Dr. Barbara about symbols that you never actually see in my dream and mentioned the babies.  The babies are ideas.  Since I don’t actually see them, they are ideas that are kind of floating around somewhere out there, but I’m not fully connected to them, aware of them.  I’m not able to nurture the ideas and help them to grow because they have not fully materialized in my mind yet.  I need to be still and receive the ideas fully so that I can fully visualize them and help them to mature.

 

Please be sure to check out The School of Metaphysics branches page  during April 25th-27th 6pm until the end of Sunday night to find the branch nearest you (although any of the schools will be fine!) and to get your dream interpreted for free.

Our ideal is that every individual be able to connect to his/her subconscious mind through remembering, interpreting, and applying the messages from dreams.  This is the first step!
