There’s nothing like the feeling of your body absorbing nutrients from a healthy, well-balanced meal.
Last night I prepared some cacao-golden milk before bed (coconut milk, coconut oil, turmeric, black pepper, cacao powder, honey, cinnamon).
There was some leftover and rather than be greedy (which I am far too often guilty of), I poured it over some gluten-free oats and chia seeds. Then mixed in some nuts I experimented in a dehydrator I’ve been kindly loaned (almond, walnut, hazelnut, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, leftover pulp from freshly juiced fruit and veg, cinnamon, honey). Tossed in cacao nibs and a couple of dates, then heated this morning with coconut oil, 1/2 a banana and handful of blueberries.
Didn’t take a photo in time and I’m sure it looks gross to most, but my oh my was it absolutely delicious.
I did an intense Forrest yoga workshop last night, 2 sweaty hardcore hours in 30°c heat and only followed by a bit of fruit and coconut water to refuel (along with the cacao-golden milk).
So this morning my body is welcoming every single beautifully nourishing ingredient.
I’m so grateful for all the amazing things in my life – my health, the abundance of food provided naturally by pachamama, the gorgeous soul tribe who help me along my healing/growing path.
I’m truly blessed.
So yeah – random breakfast, full of goodness to set me up for a great day. In the words of that wonderful native American Indian song – I can feel it in my body, I can feel it in my soul! Heyaho!
Happy Sunday y’all!
Today was an unrivalled feeling of gratitude, for our one and only, the irreplaceable; Mother Nature.
I’m grateful for the birds chirping outside my window at dawn (or when I decide to rise).
I’m grateful for the canal banks and all its natural glory; butterflies, dragonflies, ducks and swans, stork, trees, bushes and shrubs… nettles, regular annoying flies that stick in your hair and dive into your mouth while cycling.
Though I suppose it’s actually myself invading their space with my bicycle and speed… so I’m grateful I’m allowed into their space.
I’m grateful for the sun beaming down on to the back of my neck. And for the breeze that whips my hair back.
Mother Nature will never ever leave our side, no matter how much we take her for granted, or abuse her. Even if she’s beaten down and stripped of life through winter (or pollution/construction/war etc), she will come back fighting. She’ll take back what was always hers, still offering our disloyal race a comfortable, nourishing home. And she always will.
A simple, well-paid job
I use the term ‘well-paid’ loosely, since we all know most of the population are underpaid in the grand scheme of the world…. shat on by greedy bankers and slave driving corporations who’d have you work for free if it were legal…
But in terms of my situation in comparison to other remedial jobs out there, I’m extremely fortunate and I know this.
I earn above the minimum wage, in a warm environment with its own duck pond outside. I’m able to feed myself daily and keep a roof over my head on less than 20 hours a week (just).
I have the option of buying shares at a reduced cost and thus making money back from a greedy corporation. Amongst other perks of working for a multinational.
I understand I’m a hypocrite, supporting the structure of everything I despise. But I’m grateful for the CHOICE.
I’m grateful I’m not in danger where I work. I’m grateful I have fantastic people around me when I’m there. And I’m grateful for all the different people I get to speak with and build relationships with… cos sooner or later there comes about a special one, with which a bond is formed and although we never see each other or likely speak again… We leave a mark on each other.
The last customer that made me feel this way, said I’d “restored her faith in humanity”, and that was a real blessing.
Today I’m glad to have such a fantastic group of peers. We’ve known each other for many years now and have developed strong bonds.
The power of positive energy being transferred and exchanged between humans willfully and gratefully is extraordinary. Today, I honour the universe and my Self as One, for providing me with such rich experiences of love and friendship.
Browsing through some of the older posts here, I’m left unexpectedly surprised at how negative many of them were.
Much of it was venting, but what surprises me most is how unbalanced yet interconnected the posts are. One post would be full of praise and gratitude for life and the universe, then the following could be full of depression, or casuslly dropping the word ‘suicide’.
So how do I feel now, upon entry to 2015? Well paranoia is certainly an issue. That’s clear from many of the posts. But so is lack of fulfilment. And this seems to be where most of the sub – issues are stemming from.
On a positive note, I’ve been practising yoga and have fixed up my nutrient intake. Real food is back on the menu. I’ve done more meditation, and an awesome Kyanite crystal arrived in the post today, right on cue. So the vibrations are certainly coming back into tune.. and I feel great!
I’d like to take the opportunity to wish the same peace and reassurance to all, and may your 2015 wishes manifest into reality.
The Workplace is a whole different world. These strangers you’re placed with, on the third dimensional physical plane, seemingly at random.
I’ve really started to realise how much of an actual universal test it all is.
Since having to function through a few working days a week (I sacrifice 2.5 days a week to earn currency tokens, i.e. money) is what I’ve manifested and the current vibration I’m on, I began to accept the fact that it’s all there to help my soul progress.
Everybody there seems to try my patience in some way. Even if it’s miniscule and barely noticeable… There are decent people who you’re more grateful for and actually get on with. But there’s still something about them that touches some nerve.
But I realise they’re all just a reflection of myself. And I get mad because there’s a part of myself in all of their behaviours, and because I feel stuck in a reality I don’t want… but have created myself. I opted in to be an economic slave for this company.
So must begin the alterations; higher vibrations, an increase in love for myself and those I work with. And more gratitude for the job that I clearly did ‘want’ at some point, since I applied for it not once, but twice. Only then will things improve and start shifting toward the kind of reality that I not only attract, but truly desire.
