Why go natural, organic and sustainable??

To start you will live a longer, healthier life, knowing you did everything you could do to not only take care of you body but of the planet as a whole. You did your part in trying to leave the earth in better condition than it was for you, for your children and all generations that follow.

 There are really endless reasons to choose a more natural and sustainable existence. Everything from natural cleaners to organic foods and sustainable energy are readily available, but the question is WHY should we choose the natural over synthetic and chemically produced products ??

We are living in a rapidly changing world, some of the changes are good but others are not so good. We have opportunity for choices, that we did have not have, in the past. We have options to choose a healthier lifestyle for ourselves and in turn leaving a healthier earth for our future generations. Spiritually life becomes lighter and even necessity to become more natural. We become very sensitive to heavy energies and chemicals.

Little changes are good changes, whether it is buying organic in support of eliminating use of pesticide or because you want to better your chances of being cancer free all your life. It could be finding a source of natural cleaners ( which there are plenty !! ) in support of lessening the rate of poison we willing give to our mother earth or because you want less chemicals in your living space, it all makes a long term difference.

People are becoming more sensitive to everything, both with energy and what surrounds us in our environment. People are tired and beginning to want a simpler life. These are the times, and we are the ones that made it complicated. We are craving change and when we start with little things, the universe will undoubtedly present you with more opportunities to go even more natural and sustainable.

We do not need three quarters of the "stuff" we have in our houses. The healthy food we buy are the same foods we can eat and clean ourselves and even disinfect your house hold items, such as cloths, counters, floors and basically anything else.

Before long we will not need or need very little of oil, gas, propane or anything else which depletes mother earth. There is much harm being done to our planet out of greed and ignorance and we are now starting to see the effects of it. There are other resources that are ever replenishable, such as sun, hemp and water. The cost is too high for most right now but everything is working itself out and if we are smart and pay attention we are being given little opportunities to live better. The more we demand and speak out for change, the faster we can begin to heal ourselves and mother earth could regain some balance through our help too.

Every little bit helps, everything from starting to recycle or compost, using natural products and home remedies to growing your own garden or putting in a solar panel, it all helps and set the foundation a little stronger for those that follow in the years to come.

:) Here's to a healthier planet and a healthier you :)

Never think you got it all figured out !!

Be open to changes in your well thought out plans. We think we know whats best for ourselves but sometimes the universe knows better. Well it always knows better ;) When we think we have it all figured out, we sometimes will be quickly knocked off course. When things go "wrong" it's usually because our plans weren't perfectly "right" We thought we had it all figured out !! But we did not !!

We have our goals and DO need to plan our steps in order to get there. We do need a plan of action and actions that follow but the plan must be flexible and changeable in a heartbeat. At any moment things can change and we have to change with it.

When we set out intentions and start to act on it, you stir energy and send out vibrations. Those vibrations start to move mountains to put us in the right place, at the right time, they bring about people, experiences and opportunities that will not be in your well thought out plan. When we decide we are going to do something, things will happen that you couldn't possibly plan for.

So if we think we have it all figured out, we will feel a sense of failure when things don't go according to plan.

If we can remind ourselves that we must take the opportunities that show up or in other words..... If we can trust Spirit better than us and when things seem off course, it is most likely that spirit is giving you a nudge in a particular direction or manipulating your plan to set your course in the direction of success.

Really when things seem off course it is usually our all loving guides redirecting us in the right direction. BE flexible, BE teachable. We will never have it all figured out. We came into existence to learn and change the state of our all giving mother earth. We are the pioneers and it will be more generations before we Have It All Figured Out !!

When we understand we are learning til the day we die and we will never have it all figured out, it takes the weight of the world off our shoulders. We can give our self permission to relax somewhat and let the universe guide and teach us where need be. We can be free to make mistakes and say "I don't know". We can be ourselves.

We are beings that came into life to experience it, Not figure it all out in one life time !!

Life is a beautiful struggle, so go with the flow and be teachable til the day you return home <3

Hurt people....Hurt people !!

We all have that co-worker that walks around all day with their nickers in a bunch being mean and grumpy with anyone they can, or that neighbor that yells at every person that walks by for just about anything, or that friend that seems to complain about everything, gets jealous over everything, and makes you feel bad for just about everything you do, and many of us have that ex that does anything to try and hurt you.

It's sometimes hard to imagine being kind to some one who is intentionally or even not intentionally hurting you or someone else. But if we remember HURT people, HURT people, we can learn to respond differently.

This does not excuse their behavior and willingness to have others suffer because they themselves suffer. Remembering Hurt people, hurt people we can lessen the energy pull they try to invoke from us. We can know that if they could do better, they would do better.

People who are generally happy, grateful and have an appreciation  for life and what it has to offer, do not do things intentionally to hurt another person, They do not regularly seek out someone to spew negativity at. Healthy, stable people look to help and share what they can.

Try to see into the person that seems to be intentionally mean and creates conflict everywhere they go, know you cannot change them but you can empathize and therefore desensitize yourself to the energy the put forth. You can understand they are suffering somewhere in their life and don't know any better than to outwardly show their pain. They usually have no other way to cope.

When someone is so hurt in their life, most times they don't even realize on the deeper level what it is they are doing. They have numbed themselves to their own pain so how they possibly understand or even CARE what they are doing is creating anguish in someone elses life.

Like attracts and reacts to like. So how one is feeling inside is a total reflection of how they are acting on the outside and likewise.... How one is behaving toward others is a reflection of what they are feeling inside themselves.

We cannot really DO anything to change their behavior but we can either reach out to them and respond in love, which will probably freak them out, as they would not be use to it, and therefore may respond badly to your energy but non the less it will be felt by them. Sometimes reaching out is not possible so you can offer your blessing, a prayer and just understand they hurting deeply somewhere.

No matter how bad they behave or how terrible their personality may seem, we have the ability to respond in love.

We also have the ability to prevent the negative feelings they bring out in ourselves by knowing .....Hurt people, Hurt people, we CAN choose to NOT hurt back but instead send love, knowing it will be received on some level. You may never see it but  guaranteed they will feel it.

Be the change you wish to see !!! We can do this :)

Steer away from spiritual or religious snobbery

Spirituality and religions core values are suppose to encompass the qualities of unconditional love, equality and no judgment to another being................... Perfect !!! Right ?? religious

Most often this is the case but we will encounter moments where we will consider ourselves better than someone that is not, of like mind. This is normal, sort of. |We are human and egos play a big role in all our lives. How we respond and behave when we catch ourselves feeling superior is really what counts.

When we find ourselves thinking thoughts of judgment to another, or using words that are demeaning to someone or even outwardly behaving superior to others values or actions we must stop and remember we have to be the change we are all seeking, on the path of Love !!

Too easily we can feel better than someone else because the are not as conscious or open to our beliefs. This is only amplifying the problems we seek to erraticate. We must go into our heart space and remember we are all equal and have infinite time to evolve.

We cannot claim to love unconditionally, and see ourselves as ONE and therefore equal to all........ when we think thoughts or have feeling of being better, higher or more superior than another.

We truly are equal to every human. We are all cut from the same cloth. Some of us have grown and try consciously to live through our hearts and others may have fallen and cannot find their way back.

This does not make one more superior. It makes us equal. It makes us human. Not one persons human value is ever greater than another. The brain surgeon is no more superior than the homeless guy who lives down the road.

We are here to lift the people and beings around us. We are here to learn the true value of love. Love is the strongest most freeing energy and when we see ourselves as equals to everyone, we can do what we came here to do and lift those who suffer or live in a way, that we feel an urge to judge.

If we did not come across people whose values differ from us how would we have the opportunity to test the strength of our love, patience and willingness to help those who can never repay you with anything more than a thank you or smile and maybe not even that.

When we find ourselves about to commit spiritual or religious snobbery, simply give your ego a nudge and find your way into your heart.

Do not look down on anyone,...... do not think "I would never"..... do not have feelings of superiority,....... do not consider yourself better than anyone. If you cannot connect or help them in any way your mission is to pray for them, send them good thoughts and energy. When you say a prayer or send a good thought to another you will instantly be put at you hearts center and the ripple effect is what is going to save us as a whole.

Whether we like it or believe it or not..... we are all ONE with everything, we are all connected in ways most still cannot fully comprehend. When one person suffers it effects the whole. Love is what heals, Love is the only healer and love can be sent all over the world from where you are sitting right now.

So if you consider yourself a loving religious or spiritual being, leave the snobbery in the past and lift those around you, even if it's only through a prayer or loving thought <3
