If we lived off the land in chicago we would be fermenting, canning, preserving and favoring fats and proteins as we moved into winter. These foods nourish and build the body~ preparing it for the cold winter months to come, and build Digestion which helps to boost the immune system.
It's all about how you look at things! So if you're not happy about a current event or situation, change the way you look at it to create happiness rather than being stuck in unhappiness.
As Wayne Dyer once said, "Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change." When you change the way you see the world, when you search for the good and the positive, then your world transforms into an amazing place filled with good and positivity. And isn't that what it's all about? xoxo
Be your own best friend and write a letter to you today. This may feel awkward, but your own words to yourself should matter most. Keep it somewhere handy so that you can refer to it when you're challenged. M
Wayne Dwyer's quote completely captures today's task:
" Being myself involves no risks. It is my ultimate truth, and I live it fearlessly".
Making soft pills is a great way to take an experience Ayurvedic herbal medicine. Ayurveda emphasizes that the actual taste (the rasa) is the essence of a substance and actually gives a physiologic effect to the body, mind and consciousness. Thus, when we can touch an actual herb to our tongue, and avoid capsules ~ we should. The rejuvenating herbs tend to taste pleasant, but many detoxifying and cleansing herbs taste extremely bitter and bad. Mixing powdered herbs with honey, not only improves the taste, but also has additional beneficial effects. In my video I am mixing Gokshura, ashwagandha and shatavari in equal proportions. It is difficult to say how much honey one should add~ since some honey is thin while other honey is thick. But basically, you need to get it to coagulate so that you can roll it in a ball with your hands. The act of rolling your herbs in your own hands give even more additional benefits. Remember that, herbs contain sentient consciousness that can powerfully influence your own. You activate ancestral and eternal healing memories whenever you engage with your healing stuffs with your bare hands.
“Two people have been living in you all of your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to.” #waynedyerquotes#ego
One reason that I am so grateful to teach yoga is because my practice has helped me to feel and be more at peace in all situations, and thus to act more peacefully toward others.
What do you do regularly that helps you cultivate peace? How do you teach peace to those around you, regardless of your profession?
Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” —Wayne W. Dyer
This quote reminds us of when Mother Teresa was asked why she didn't participate in anti-war demonstrations. She responded, "I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.” We're much more powerful when our focus is on the positive way we can make a difference
