@Regrann from @dr_holistic_health - COLOR ~ FOODS ~ BENEFITS nutrition chart. This chart emphasizes protective and detoxifying foods for the body and many phytonutrients and antioxidants that protect the body from cancer in various ways and will boost the immune system which is crucial for sustained optimal health...in honor of cancer awareness and breast cancer awareness month. 🍉🍇🍑🍒🍉🍇🍑🍒🍉🍇🍑🍒Refer to my previous post about the blood cleansing herb Red Clover which is especially protective against breast cancer.👙🌿
💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙Another very important food not listed here in the Blue section that is especially rich in anthocyanins is blue-green SPIRULINA. Refer to my previous post all about Spirulina. I only use Hawaiian Spirulina by Nutrex which is tested weekly for all toxins. This Spirulina also contains 30 mgs of chlorophyll per 1 teaspoon which is especially nourishing and cleansing for blood and cells. It contains a multitude of nutrients that nourish, protect and revitalize the body.
We can also add protective fiber and Omega-3 rich flax, chia, hemp seeds to this chart.
Before eating chia seeds it is recommended to soak them in water for 2 hours so their nutritional nutrients can be absorbed. 💖🌿🍠🌱🍒🍑🍍🌽🍊🍐🍎🍏🍋🍈🍆

🙏❤ If you are interested in the thought of Ramana Maharshi you can follow me on my profile facebook : Alessandro Longi❤There is "you" and "he". If through the search for the truth of "I", "I" ceases, you will cease "you" and "he" and shine like the One. This is the natural state of one's being.🙏Asking "Who am I?" Inside the mind, and reaching the heart, the self collapses. At the same time the true "I" appears (like "I" "I"), and although it manifests itself as "I" it is not the ego, but the true being.❤Silence is unmistakable eloquence, the state of grace rising from within.❤Primary substance whose essence is the silence that I am.❤Your duty is to be: and not to be this or that.❤Ramana Maharshi❤🙏💙🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Do you love receiving a reading?
Do you love receiving snail mail?
Who doesn't love opening the mailbox and finding a letter that ISNT a bill. And that letter is handwritten to them.
In this reading you will receive a specially chosen oracle card from my Secret Language of Animals deck, and I will write it's meaning and any other mesages I receive in a lovely handwritten note to you.
The Secret Language of Animals is a doorway to reconnect with the wisdom of nature through the messages of a handful of our planets most threatened species.
What gift or message are the animals waiting to awaken in you?
A gentle reminder from Spirit today:
"I own my own Universe.
All of my thoughts and opinions and valid.
I no longer allow others to hold their thought patterns higher than mine.
I now recognise my own choice in what to believe.
I am empowered to move forward in the energy of my own inspirations"
The peace I have now was worth everything I lost. Although I may have “nothing” at the moment, I fully have myself, and to me, that is my everything. I am home again, in my home frequency, in my own body. And because now that I am at peace, I am feeling like myself. And because I am feeling like myself, life is becoming authentically beautiful again. Life is proving to me once again, the more faith you put into the Universe and trust in the divine process and order of things, the more rewarding your life will become. I continuously surprise myself with my courage to live and my courage to rise. My fearlessness in the pursuit of what sets my soul on fire. Or rather than saying fearlessness, should I emphasize the significance of taking ACTION despite the fears because my faith and trust in my God-mind is greater than my personal mind. My CHOICE and my ACTION despite my fears and the CIRCUMSTANCES. My WILL to LEAD my own life despite how it has been for “others.” My determination to CREATE my OWN terms and conditions for MY life. The limit does not exist. I stopped defining things for myself. I stopped labeling things as to how something is “supposed to be.” I started to ALLOW and ACCEPT, even EMBRACE and ENJOY. And then I started to anticipate the SURPRISES. I hold such a value in the fact that I am always following heart. Even when I lose my sight and even my mind, I put full faith into my heart because that is the center of my soul and my soul knows the divine purpose of my spirit. And in the end, I ALWAYS receive exactly what I need. Once I honor where I am, the Universe shows me ways that I did not “expect.” And again I always end up surprised. I started to see a light again. In order to see this light, I first had to find my center. I first had to find my peace. In the midst of misery and depression, how do you expect to be clear-minded? You cannot be. You MUST prioritize your inner peace, so that you can think and see CLEARLY for yourself, where your PATH is. Or rather, how YOU can create your OWN path. The Universe is on your side. Following your own guides/intuition is the way to YOUR divine purpose. #vikihan @momentwithviki #momentwithviki
Do you ever notice your child saying, “they won’t want to play with me” when they see kids in the park, or “I am ugly” when they look in the mirror, or even “I am going to fail this test” after they have studied hard for it?
These are examples of negative self-talk.
This type of self-talk affects their emotions, their mood, their actions, and even creates self-doubt.
The good news is that developing positive self-talk is a skill which can be learned.
Teach your child that what they say to themselves is more important than what anyone else says, and that they have the power to choose what they say to themselves!
I’ve been feeling a little stuck lately which has in turn blocked my creativity. This can happen when our Solar Plexus Chakra is unbalanced... So I’m using Arise EO and Citrine to bring balance as well as Smoky Quartz for grounding. Pulling a few cards when we are feeling out of sorts is a great way to get some perspective and direction! What do you like to do when you’re not quite feeling like yourself??
Our Body, Mind and Spirit are all interconnected. Constant physical pain will eventually effect our mental wellbeing. A negative mind will eventually effect our physical wellbeing. Our spirit is always being effected by the energies we are creating and absorbing. To become aware of the state of each of these parts of ourself is to truly know ourself. Knowledge of self leads to self love, which leads to universal love. Overall health is my mission. For myself and for everyone!

I love to take a nature walk and gather some herbs. I literally can't go 50 meters without stopping to stuff my pockets with some herbs. 🌿 The entire process puts me in a meditative state.⠀
Nature offers an incredible abundance of medicinal plants. And October is perfect for harvesting rose hips. ⠀
Rose hips are best known for their high content of vitamin C (especially fresh rose hips). In fact, they contain more vitamin C than most organges. They are also rich in vitamins E and K. Rose hips also contain health-boosting substances such as pectin, tannins, flavonoids, and carotenoids.⠀
Rose hips produce anti-inflammatory effect and are quite effective for the treatment of joint pain, osteoarthritis, and potentially rheumatoid arthritis.⠀
Rose hips can be useful to fight off colds and are great for the immune system.⠀
Many people drink rosehip tea to improve the appearance of their skin, as this herb is known to be astringent in nature, while also delivering those powerful antioxidants to the areas of the skin that need it most. This might help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, speed healing of irritated or dry skin, and prevent infections and inflammation, such as psoriasis and acne. ⠀
If you feel that the rose hip tea has a bit strong taste, use some stevia extract or spearmint leaves to sweeten the flavor. ⠀
Have a nice week! 🌿🌿🌿⠀

When Jesus knocked on the heart of my soul I used to reach for him long to be close him so much so to be one forever, so that I wouldnt lose that close connection, that feeling. •
I'd skip homework to pray, spend long hours crying out to him not wanting to lose that feeling, not wanting to lose him from my actions, my behavior, the good always should out way the bad so he wont walk away. Not knowing is all he wanted was me. •
I can't miss this, I don't want to miss this. But what is the point of being in a healthy relationship with Jesus if I think he'd leave. Fear that God would be so mad he'd be fed up leaving me. Though he called my name and I answered it was work time to keep everything going. Gotta change all the outside to keep his spirit inside, fear. •
And hey I don't want to miss this, and thats good because he doesn't want me to either. God sent Jesus to work with us, and because of that I can't lose his love that chose me and keeps choosing me daily over and over within the mess, within the pain, into the depths of who I am, who you are. And baby I'm learning that it only gets sweeter with time. •
"A thing of beauty is a joy forever it's loveliness increases, it will never pass into nothingness." -John Keats
Are you in Brisbane and want to learn astrology in-person? I'm teaching my first 'official' astrology class in early Nov and taking expressions of interest for next year.
Why study with me?
I describe myself an eclectic astrologer, because I blend the wisdom of a number of astrological schools.
Originally, I trained in modern psychological astrology, with an experiential twist. Then, at my first astrology conference, I had my mind blown open by a lecture on traditional astrology. The last few years, the call of Hellenistic astrology has become loud and clear.
Astrology has a way of getting to the heart of the issue, but I realised that all the technical proficiency doesn't mean much without the ability to hold space for someone with empathy and awareness. It was this strong sense of responsibility is what led me to train as a transpersonal counsellor.
Add to this my experience as a trainer in both a corporate setting and in women's circles, you know you're getting the real deal.

At times healers are in the need of healing and that's why I have teamed up with amazing healers throughout Bali to work on a healing program over the next 6 weeks. A program that will transform you physically, mentally and spritualy. I had a dear friend of mine saying to me this weekend : Why don't you heal yourself as you are a healer through nutrition - you know what to do.
The most important thing to realize is that healers (including me) are human beings too. I have chosen a path of being a healer but by any means it doesn't make me superwoman.
During a yoga class, workshop, retreat or an appointment with a client there is a lot of energy exchange. Even though I am attuned to get unlimited sources of healing energy, I can get prone to negative energies of my surroundings. I had a lot on my mind as moving to Bali has been more of a mindful*&ck to me than what I could have ever imagined it will be, and didn't execute proper shielding and grounding and left me wide open to all sorts of negative auras that left a negative effect on me.
Over the next 6 weeks I will give you updates and insight information on the program I am writing with @sasmita_world. We believe that what goes on spiritualy and mentally is what you see physically.
Our program will be available on line in January 2018 to guide you through holistic transformation to make 2018 powerful, soulful and your supermodel year!
Ive never understood light vs dark Magick personally. To me; when you create sacred space and convene with the universal powers to bring about your desires you are 100% manipulating with the natural order of life. The way things turned out is not necessarily how they may have naturally unraveled so if you can not take the responsibility implied in that statement, to me- manifestation is not for you
This is why it’s so important you make your rituals and practises about growing you! Rather than focusing on someone else; attraction and love charms etc. do you really want to spend the rest of your life wondering what someone really thinks about you?
The free will of the universe in my mind is ripe for manipulation. This is what it means to be a co-creator! You bend the laws of the universe to manifest what you require. The free will of other people however is something I will never mess with; it’s not in my heart to use my Magick like that and I have been offered a lot of money by others to do this 🔥
You are the main character in your own story; other people do not matter. Stop writing your story with them in mind
Real Magick changes your life and changes everything you do-so my Magick is for me and for healing. I’m not going to waste sacred space on rituals for others. I do return energy like a mother fucker though so if you want to drink from the haterade I would suggest you focus your attention on a less accomplished practitioner. That negativity does not belong to me and I will return it back to your higher self to deal with🦄👽🔮

You know what’s #scary 👻.......
As we were walking down the candy isle today I remember when I used to crave sugar like a freak!!!😵 Every time we went to store I would grab my staples when we checked out. So convenient having that damn candy 🍭 display right there for last minute grabs!👊🏼🙄 Who could resist, right?! I always knew I SHOULDN’T eat it. I mean I’m an adult and know it’s so bad for me but did anyways.🤦🏻♀️ I often felt like a failure and weak because I couldn’t resist.😞 I struggled with this my WHOLE life. Up until about 1.5 years ago.
Here’s the thing....
You can cut out sugar🚫
You can cut out carbs🚫
Go on a VERY restricted #diet .🚫
Hell I did for my fitness comps but as soon as they were over I was right back to 🐽🐽🐽🐽🐽🐽! Yes your bad habits will get better when you do the above but can you seriously live and actually want to live on SUCH a restrictive regime??? Ummmm no thanks!🙅🏻 Those are all temporary quick fixes anyways.
Here’s some #truth until you get to the ROOT CAUSE of why you can’t give up that sweet tooth you will spin your wheels and forever be on that damn roller coaster ride.🤢 Over all health is on so many levels (#mind , #body and #spirit ) but the crazy thing is if you start with your gut health (#gutflora ) and especially kill that beast (#Candida 👹) you will be amazed how everything else falls into place on ALL levels of health!💫 #byebyesweettooth#nomorequickfixes#internalhealthfirst#happiness#guthealth#microbiome#challengtochange#healthyliving#naturalliving#Momto3#soccermom#naturalhealing#momlife#holistichealing#opportunity#Canada#NewZealand#changinglivesdaily#karatemom#enjoythejourney#mindset#fitness
:: F O O D A S M E D I C I N E ::
Before I say anything, I want to clearly express that the healing of the plant realm will forever be at the center of everything I do. But I'd like to acknowledge that plants are not here to solve our problems - they are here to support us in our journey here on earth. So while I'm not out wildcrafting, medicine making, and frolicking in the woods much right now, a lot of my energy is going here: to the gut and to the food.
The gut is coined the "root of our vital tree" meaning that e v e r y t h i n g starts here. And by gut, I mean the digestive system as a whole. If your stomach isn't working properly, then your small intestines and colon are being affected and then the lymph -> blood -> muscles -> skin -> bones -> nerves -> reproductive. In Ayurveda, this is what we call "flooding".
So where do we start? Not only with the food we eat, but how we cook it. I've been working on developing some really good habits lately, and here's the main three that I've found have made the biggest impact on how I eat and digest my meals:
- Not cooking in oil, but in bone broth or spiced water broth (spices = enzymes. Bring on the spice!)
- Not cooking with salt, but adding electrolyte-rich grey salt to my food before eating (Salt on metal causes a chemical reaction that actually makes it bad for us! Who knew?!)
- Adding raw essential fatty acid - EFA - oils to my food after cooking such as hemp, flax, borage, or olive (We want 6-8tbsp EFAs daily)
And above all, gratitude. Remembering to be grateful for the food in front of me is number one, not only for myself but for the earth.
Featured here is today's lunch of sprouted quinoa (soaked for 24hours), green beans and sweet potatoes cooked in bone broth, black sesame tahini, sauerkraut, hemp seeds, and flax oil. Simple, nourishing, and delicious.
So a few days ago I started Zofran, to help combat the serious case of nausea that was brought on my Baby S taking up residency in my belly... it has been a life saver!!!
But not without some rather unpleasant drawbacks... [boys you may want to skip the rest of this one... mamma’s I’m sure you know where I’m headed]...
The largest and most reported side effect of Zofran is constipation, yep the medicine that keeps you from puking also keeps you from 💩’in... so after three days with little luck I hit up my Oily arsenal for the big guns 💪🏼!!! [after having 0 luck with a pregnancy safe laxative]
1 drop of Peppermint EO in the toilet + 1 drop massaged on your lower abdomen = 🚽🙌🏼✨🌿💩!!!
So whether you’re dealing with first trimester (who am I kidding, this is an every trimester struggle) or just an occasional hold up, grab some Peppe’ and get things moving again!!!
You’re Welcome 🌿 .
PS, how is it that after years of personal success with essential Oils, do I always seem to try them last?!? Last, of course because once I try them there is no need to try anything else 🤦🏼♀️
I was 12 years old when it first happened. All of the sudden, I couldn’t see out of one eye and felt excruciating pain in my head. The Doctor said I had a “Migraine With Aura” - he couldn’t prescribe me medication because I could become “addicted.” This was a very stressful time in life - for very personal reasons. —�—�-
This wasn’t a one time occurrence. Throughout high school I’d experience about 1 migraine per week. I took Tylenol everyday because I was so afraid. Some people didn’t believe me and it was hard for me to explain what was happening. High school was stressful. —�—�-
When I started birth control the migraines intensified to 2-3 per week and that was no way for a young woman to live. It has been proven that the hormones in BC that mimic estrogen are not safe for women who suffer from this form of migraine. —�—�-
I learned that this form of migraine is hereditary. As I grew older the migraines changed, in addition to visual disturbances, my fingers, tongue and legs would go numb and my speech would become impaired during an episode. No migraine medication has ever worked. —�—�-
Sometimes I can go 6+ months without migraines. Other times I’ll have 1-2+ per week, times of high stress. I’ve learned to manage and I know the triggers. —�—�
Over the past few months they’ve returned with a vengeance. I’ve been having 1-2 migraines per week.
I’ve noticed that when the migraines start happening it’s my body’s way of telling me that I’m doing WAY too much and I need to slow down. My body literally forces me to rest - I can’t function during an episode. Yoga is the only thing I’ve found to help.
During these times, I ask myself - Am I being kind and gentle with myself? The answer is always no. —�—
So, I’ve taken time to live intentionally, spend time alone and with my family, meal prep, meditate, work out more, do more yoga, NOT take on any new clients and say NO more.
No migraines in 1 week 😊
Though the pictures are not completely accurate - they are the closest thing I’ve found to depicting what I see during a migraine. Imagine being 12 and seeing that!?
If you also suffer from this form of migraine, what helps you?
Essential Oil Diffusing! I find watching this so relaxing 🎼
Kelley is sick (the “Man flu” is a real thing 🙈) and I feel like I’m also getting sick so I’m going all out with Immunity Boosting to help him & I heal as quickly as possible 🙏🏼👍🏼
I’m diffusing Frankencense, Thyme, Peppermint, Cederwood, Clove & Helichrysm !
