Change Is In the Air

Change is in the Air

January 20 to February 18 - Zodiac Sign: Aquarius - Element: Air - Color: Blue

"The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind." — William Blake

When I was in college the musical Hair was all the buzz. I remember going to see Hair at its Chicago production and being blown away by the lyrics and story. Since we are now officially in the "Age of Aquarius", I find myself humming the tunes once again:

A Time for Healing and Change

Lime Smoothie Macro Greens Miracle Reds Recipe

December 22 to January 19 - Zodiac Sign: Capricorn - Element: Earth - Color: Turquoise

It is no accident that this is the time of year for healing and change. The Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new brighter tomorrow. Let's propose that this year, we make resolutions we can live with. Traditionally people have a tendency to "feast and fast", which in plain English means "celebrating followed by regretting". This is the time of year people tend to put off healthy habits, saying "I am going to be healthier tomorrow" instead of "I choose to be healthy today". But the longer we wait the more difficult it is to make necessary changes. One day we wake up from all of our tomorrow's and discover that the three extra "Holiday" pounds we were going to loose tomorrow, ten years later, have added up to 30 extra pounds today. And the ever popular... "after I loose the three pounds I'll start to exercise because I want look better in my exercise clothes". Sorry people, it doesn't happen that way.

Heat Things Up with Optimism

Sagittarius

November 22 to December 21 - Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius - Element: fire - Color: Green-Blue

Sagittarius is my birth sign and if that isn't enough, I am married to a double Sagittarius. Let me just say there is rarely a dull moment in our household. We are both artists, free thinkers and born warriors. Just tell us we can't do something and watch the fire burn in our eyes. I am the classic Sagittarian, motivated by my quest for knowledge, a desire to understand the big picture and travel along my path on a never ending quest for deep meaning in all things. I find purpose and meaning in everything. Like the archer with her feet on the ground and her bow pointing toward the heavens, Sagittarians would much rather get away from whatever is base, material, and dark. We’d rather set our sights on a distant light than accept the mundane.

Still Waters Run Deep

Water seeks its own level

October 23 to November 21 - Zodiac Sign: Scorpio - Element: Water - Color: Green

"Still waters run deep" was one of my mother's favorite sayings. Another was, "water seeks its own level." Like most children, I tuned her out whenever possible. It’s only now that she is gone, and I've experienced my own children tuning me out whenever possible, that I finally get it. Events in life don't make us who we are; events reveal of what we are made. Currents of the past are always just below the surface of our outward behaviors. If we choose activities on the same vibrational level as our thoughts, we can only assume that those low vibrational thoughts will attract other low vibrational people and activities into our lives. So then, how do we raise the bar? If thought, word, action and emotions all need to be working harmoniously to create balance, then how do we get all of the components on board?

Be Part of a Harmonious Global Community

Be Part of a Harmonious Global Community

September 23 to October 22 - Zodiac Sign: Libra - Element: Air - Color: Chartreuse

My youngest son Zach called home from college a while ago. He'd spent the weekend at a leadership training seminar, and wanted to share something he'd learned, a story from the closing motivational speaker. Zach said it made him think of me. My heart welled with a mother's love and pride. For me, it validated the message I have always tried to instill in both of my children. Any parent reading this knows that we do our best to teach our children how to live a full conscious life, but it isn't until they are faced with real life situations that we can be sure if they were listening. When all is said and done, events do not create a person's character – they only reveal it. All we can do is pray and hope they were listening to us and not the media.

Grounded in Nature – Reach for the Stars

August 23 to September 22 - Zodiac Sign: Virgo - Element: Earth -  Color: Yellow

How can we ever be expected to become healthy and fit when we hate our body or situation. We not only are what we eat, but we are also what we think and ultimately what we do. If we think like victims, that is what we become. If every thought is that we are unattractive, unhealthy, undesirable — you name it, that IS what we become.

Cellfood, the Best pH Drops I've Found

Cellfood, the Best pH Drops I've Found

I’m not going to lie to you, balancing pH involves a total lifestyle make-over. If it took no commitment and a small pill could correct acid to alkaline ratios within the body, everyone would be pH balanced. Eating a salad everyday will help, but it won’t get the results you may be looking for. Balancing pH is a two fold proposition, first we must eliminate the acid heavy hitters such as artificial ingredients, alcohol, added sugar in all forms, coffee, processed grains, commercial dairy, hydrogenated oils and all Frankenfoods in general. We need to then replace those false foods in our diet with whole organic vegetables, whole gluten-free grains, pure source water, pasture raised hormone and antibiotic free meats and limit consumption of sweet organic fruits to no more than one a day. Hard work aside, practicing a consistant effort to nourish and cleanse the body can give stunning results.

Wheatgrass Juice Provides Enzymes for Life

Enzymes are important catalysts to every body function. They are the building blocks of life. All living things have enzymes. There are to date 2700 identifiable enzymes in the human body. Every second enzymes are at work changing and renewing at remarkable rates. Most people are familiar with vitamins and minerals but don’t realize that they cannot be activated until they join with enzymes. Plant enzymes initiate the work of the digestive system, they also help the small intestine absorb nutrients and help cleanse the blood. Enzymes enhance every aspect of every body function.

The Joy of Rebounding

Bellicon QiBounding

Silent, low impact joy at any age. Rebounding helps relieve back pain, weak joints and knees. When running is no longer an option, because your back hurts or your knees or joints prefer not to be exposed to running any longer, rebounding is a low impact exercise to keep you moving, healthy and flexible. But beyond these benefits, rebounding on a trampoline with bungee cords instead of springs is pure joy. Everytime I use my Bellicon and practice QiBounding I feel the freedom of my childhood. Like a bird in flight my body and spirit soar with each jump. I challenge anyone to get on one of these rebounders and not smile.
