Clearing Away the Old Sludge

When we want to make room for the new and work on ourselves there are multiple approaches available to us. We may decide to do energy work that shifts stuck energy within our body. We may decide to do emotional work where we might work through past painful experiences or we may decide to use food to work through anything that is holding us back.

The power lies within the realisation that we can use multiple strategies to achieve a bigger shift within a short amount of time. Always make sure though that you come from a place of love and patience. In the past I have noticed that force will exhaust me faster and it is almost like I am seeing the situation through a pinhole. The vision and therefore understanding is limited. Every experiences carries and lesson that must be learned and digested before we can move on.

Some of the foods that have helped me to clear away the old sludge are chia seeds, flax seeds, and clay for internal consumption. Imagine this team like a sponge that absorbs anything within the body that may be stuck and might make you uncomfortable. Over time these loosen, digest and move things through you so that you have room for new experiences.

4 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Health Nuts

For some it can be quite stressful when the time comes every year to get a Valentine’s Day gift for their loved one, even more so if they are a health nut. To make things easier I have compiled a list of my favourites to help you find a gift that your precious Valentine will love.

  1. Sheerlume Brightening Elixir Creme ($144.75 AUD or $89.14 USD) by Young Living. This is one of my favourites and must haves. I ran out of this creme a few months ago and I could visibly notice the difference. To order one of these cremes go to www.youngliving.com                                                                                                     
  2. Anthony William’s “Life Changing Foods” Book. This book is a wealth of information on how food can help with ailments and influence how we feel on a day to day basis. Health is all about going back to basics and food does affect our lives every single day.                                                                                                                    aw
  3. Yoga Class Membership. Most yoga studios nowadays offer an unlimited access to classes. For any yoga fan this is huge. Yoga is very close to my heart because it keeps me grounded and balanced ready to take on whatever life throws at me.                     warrior-pose-241611_960_720
  4. Tea. If your loved one why not get them some special tea or even teaware. My favourite tea brands include Teavanna, T2, Yogi Tea or if you want to do something very special then why not mix a tea blend just for them. You can find lots of ideas and recipes online. From there you only  need to order the ingredients,mix and put them into a nice glass jar with a ribbon.                                                                                         wp-1480508596711.jpg
