The Path to Lasting Wealth and Abundance

I propose that question to you.  What is the path to lasting wealth and abundance? As I journeyed off to the local farmer’s market this morning I was amazed at the abundance of fresh food surrounding me.

The Farmer’s Market Abundance

Our outer world is directly related to our inner world. Everything is connected. I just recently completed a 21 day juice, coconut kefir water and herbal tea fast supplementing with vitamineral green, chlorella and barley grass powders. I also included wild teas such as nettle, rose hips, chaparal & others.  High quality teas like gynostemma, dandy blend and he shou wu were extremely beneficial in supporting the immune system ( along with chaga tea). The more wild food & mineral rich  our food is the better our body will feel. These substances give our bodies more life and strength.

This fast was a wonderful experience of self growth, commitment, clarity, and a profound knowing that our inner world is directly related to what we experience externally. This holds true for our abundance as well. When we clean out the body and let go of the things that no longer service we  reset the body systems and allow for a healing to take place. If we let the body heal and rejuvenate on it’s own miraculous things happen within our mind, body and spirit. The energy around our body strengthens as well.  I feel like I just hit the reset button on my body.  My mind is very clear and strong. I have lots and lots of energy. At this point I have moved into green smoothies which consist of a little bit of fruit and alot of greens with some water and superfoods. Green smoothies are great way to ease back into food because they are broken down already so little work is done by the digestive system. The miracle of green smoothies is the fiber content and their ability to strengthen our natural hydrochloric acid so we may have the stomach acid to break down our foods properly.  Green smoothies are alkalinizing and are a great way to sweep the intestines after an extended fast. If one has an imbalance in their intestinal flora too much fruit will pose a challenge. It is a good idea to stick to green apples and possibly berries in smoothies otherwise candida can be an issue. A wonderful smoothie recipe for anyone would be something like this:

2 cups coconut kefir water (friendly bacteria)

1 cup of coconut meat

3/4 cup of berries

2 huge bunches of lettuce

1 tbs. barley grass powder – full of Nourishing vitamins including k

1 tsp. chlorella powder – Vital Nutrients and metal chelator – find the best source you can.

Blend all ingredients in your Vitamix and bam you have yourself and award winning super hero smoothie!

So as I went through this cleanse and experienced so many magical moments of synchronicity and inspiration I thought more deeply about the path to lasting wealth and abundance. Many people make money to lose it all shortly there after. Maybe they are not comfortable with the idea of making lots of money. To break through your glass ceiling or your barrier of whatever lies between you and your abundance is something worth pondering.  Abundance to me is to be fulfilling your life’s work, when all of the things required to fulfill your life’s work come into alignment and show up in your reality through people, places, experiences,  & clues this to me is true wealth.

In order to experience long lasting abundance the spiritual laws of money must be recognized and utilized. Another tool to utilize is before taking action be in the right state of mind. If you are feeling good and inspired chances are you are in alignment with your higher self and the Creator. This would be a wise time to take action. By working with energy and magnetism before you take right action things will flow a bit more effortlessly.  More is then accomplished and little effort is required. I look forward to writing a post soon about the spiritual laws of money. Until then! Caio Friends!

Probiotic Liquid Fasting for Optimal Well Being

I recently completed an 8 day liquid fast. This fast is considerably different than any other that I have done. I feel it could benefit many because it is versatile, nutrient dense & safe for those with Candida. In fact, I feel it assists acid conditions in the body re colonizes the friendly flora in the intestinal tract.

I feel that a traditional juice fast, although it can be quite healing can actually feed candida if it is not properly balanced with plenty of greens and land vegetables. I am a huge advocate of fresh pressed juice with a high caliber juicer such as the Green Star Elite or the Angel Juicer which is stainless steel a juice feast is a lot of fun. It slowly presses the juice extracting as much of the nutrient value as possible while lessening oxidation with its slow gears.

What I have found is utilizing fresh pressed juices with land vegetables (not root veggies-sugar) green apples, lemons, limes, and tons of herbs, wild flowers, & dark greens like spinach etc will be an optimal combo for juicing.  If this is not a concern for someone and they are feeling strong with there intestinal flora then of course go for yummy root veggies like non-hybrid carrots, beets etc.  Green apples are some what sour so if you utilize these you won’t get the sugar rush to the pancreas. Also if someone has diabetes this might be an optimal fast program.

A sample juice might be:

Fresh Lemons with peel (only if organic with peel)

1 green apple

1 large or 2 small cucumbers

2 inches of ginger root

1 bunch spinach

1 bunch wild dandelion greens (usually growing in your backyard)

1/2 of a celery bunch

1 big piece of fresh Aloe leaf (loaded with nutrients like zinc, sulfur, selenium, magnesium, amino acids & enzymes)-blend this into the juice once peeled.

Another liquid I am enjoying and utilizing to rejuvenate my intestines and body is young coconut kefir water from green coconuts and friendly microorganisms. They really have a consciousness and once our body is flooded with billions of friendly microbes are whole outlook can really change on life and how we see things. Try it!

I also have incorporated fresh veggie broth into the fast. What I do is take Cabbage, Dark Greens(collards & kale), Lots of Sea Vegetables for their amazing nutrient content especially iodine, carrot with tops, beets with tops, garlic, 1 whole onion, 1/2 a celery bunch etc… and put into a big pot, fill with filtered or spring water to cover and let simmer for 30 minutes. Then let the broth sit for a while with heat off. Now you have a savory broth for your lunch/dinner meal. I choose to incorporate the kale & collards thru lightly simmering the broth instead of in my fresh raw green juice b/c raw kale & collards have been known to suppress the thyroid. So with a light steaming you still get nutrients just no effect on the thyroid.

If one has a desire or consumes meat you might try getting bones like grass fed red marrow bones and simmering these for 12-24 hours. Skim the fat off the top and enjoy that broth for its ability to nourish the digestive tract and heal the gut walls. The added benefit to a grass fed bone broth is its ability to rebuild collagen in the face and body. I believe it also assists with cellulite concerns. This is something Donna Gates recommends in The Body Ecology Diet.

Another option for your liquid fast are herbal teas. I enjoy mixing different herbs like Gynostemma tea, with Lycium, Schizandra & some vanilla bean. Then I might add Chanca Piedra for its ability to decalcify the liver and tissues. I simmer different herbs and create a decoction with the roots, stems & herbs.

Another tea you might try is one made from Nettle Leaf. The B vitamins and Protein in nettle is incredible not to mention its silica content. I like to take a glass jar and at night time fill 2 ounces of Nettle Leaf and an 1 ounce of the Root, then I might add some Rose hips and Astragalus.. I let that sit over night in water and then the next day I simmer it for just a bit then let it soak.  This is a beauty tea for sure! The whole body will get a chlorophyl rich treat from the nettle leaf. The hair and skin will shine.

As a sweetener for your tea you might try a high quality stevia. I like sweet leaf stevia. This will not be a challenge for those with candida. If candida is not an issue than try a local raw honey for the nutrient value & taste.

So through out the day I am enjoying, fresh pressed juices, young green coconut kefir water, broths, & teas. I am also incorporating other nutrient superfoods and cleansing products.

Dr. Shulze Intestinal formula 1 & 2: So awesome and wildcrafted/organic too! This will actually go in and pull any hardened mucoid plaque that is challenging to remove with just a green juice fast.

Health Force Nutritional’s Vitamineral Green: This product not only has greens and herbs from the land like Tulsi, Horsetail, Nettle, Barley grass, Dandelion leaf juice, Moringa but also Spirulina & Chlorella from the waters. It has tons of sea veggies, enzymes, shilajit & billions of friendly microbes! IT is hands down so awesome to incorporate in the fast for high energy.

Fasting is a great idea to clear blockages and heal the gut walls. I would suggest consulting with a health care practitioner if this is new for you.

My results were  wonderful with 8 days of liquid fasting.   My digestion and elimination has improved. If you eat 3 times a day that is how many bowel movements you should be having.  A good habit to get into is about 20 or 30 minutes after a meal go into the bathroom and prop your feet up on a small stool. Then lift your arms up  in the air. This will assist a bowel movement and is very similar to the effects of squatting which is a natural way to evacuate.  It should be easy and effortless. If not drink more healthy fluids and do a colon cleansing fast now:)  If we get into the habit of going into the bathroom and eliminating our bodies will retrain to make time for it. Otherwise life and activities take over and we find ourselves not digesting life! We get uptight or upset etc..

As we can digest, assimilate, utilize and absorb foods and get rid of the waste gracefully so too we can handle life in this way. We notice our ability to digest life and take what is good and eliminate what is no longer serving us.  I feel that 3 or 4, 7 day fasts per year will yield great results.

Enjoy! Once you have completed a colon cleansing fast you might consider a weekly 24 hour Water fast to maintain your work.  This way toxins do not accumulate as much and the digestive tract takes a break once a week. Try it with Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, some Herbal tea and Coconut Kefir Water….now the digestive tract is getting coated with probiotics and healing liquids.

Utilize Spring Water or the best water you can find free of plastics, chemicals and hardened mineral deposits. Too much calcium in the water cements the body and creates calcification.

How to Make Cultured Vegetables/Salsa and Coconut Kefir Water

Today I made a batch of cultured salsa & some coconut kefir water.

Fermenting or Culturing veggies is a great way to enhance the nutritional value of the vegetables.  The friendly bacteria in the culture starter proliferates and after it sits for 3-7 days (or longer is great) at about 70 degrees you have a nutrient dense food.  This is extremely easy on the digestive system and is great paired with all of your meals for better assimilation and utilization of your foods. So that you can build strong & healthy hair, skin and bones. Beyond that it keeps the immune system strong!

The recipe I made today is a cultured salsa.  I took organic veggies like cabbage, red bell pepper, jalapenos, onions, dandelion greens, cilantro, beets, carrots, tomatos, mineral salt, lemon juice and fresh pressed garlic.  I minced & cut the items as desired and mix them all together.

Then I take the Body Ecology Culture Starter (you can get this on my website by clicking on the tab, “Build Strong Immunity”) and mix it with 1/2 cup of 90 degree water and some form of sugar. I used organic sun dried coconut crystals.  I let this sit for 20 minutes to let the probiotics feed off of the sugar.

Next you make a brine. You take several cups of your veggie mixture and put in your high power blender. After this is well blended like a thick soup you take the culture starter and pour that into the brine.  Now pour this over the veggies.

Next take your clean glass jars and begin to pack the mixture into each jar leaving 2 inches at the top.  Now roll up a few cabbage leaves and place at the top of the jar. Seal and let sit for a 1 week or more.

Coconut Kefir Water is very healthy too. It is a probiotic drink.  This to me is like the finest champagne and good for you!  You can make this from the Kefir Starter that I offer on my website under the same tab, “Build Strong Immunity.”  What I do a lot of the time is take a small amount of kefir I have already made and add it to fresh organic young coconut water. I let this sit on the counter with a lid for 24-36 hours or until fizzy.  You can also use the Kefir starter, add the powder to the coconut water and sit in glass jar with lid for same amount of time.  Adjust time depending on temperature.

Please feel free to interact or ask questions/leave comments. Cheers to building strong immunity~ Love, The Sacred Farm House Kitchen of the Dodhisattva:)

A Wonderful Nutrient Dense Super Food

Optimizing your Digestion

One of the key factors in optimal health is mastering digestion of the foods we put into our bodies.  A few things to note are that as we age our HCL (hydro chloric acid) levels in the stomach weaken. Most people have weak acid levels in the stomach.  If we are partially digesting our food this can cause fermentation in the stomach leading to gas, bloating, weight gain and ultimately more serious degenerative conditions.

Another key role in digestion is a healthy “gut” which means that the ratio to healthy bacteria and unhealthy bacteria is 2:1. When the healthy bacteria is flourishing our immune system is strong and healthy. This creates a healthy and happy brain as the gut and the brain are very connected.

Enzymes also play a key role in the digestion of our foods.  Enzymes are, as Dr. Edward Howell once said, “the spark of life.”  When you see someone whom is rich in enzymes you will see that they are light and bright.  There aura or the energy field around there body is strong, healthy and pure, they heal quickly and have an abundance of energy.

Last but certainly not least our thoughts and the way we relate to our food plays a role in digestion.  This is the most important and if you have any healing to do in your relation to food EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique or  what is also known as “tapping” can also assist in clearing a less than optimal relation with your food. You can easily google or research that subject for more info.

Here are some simple KEYS to increasing your HCL levels, Strengthening the friendly bacteria in your “gut”,  and enriching your body with enzymes.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar (Raw Organic Fermented)- A small dose of this taken before meals will increase the HCL levels in the stomach to assist your body to break down food in the small intestine.

2. Green Smoothies- A smoothie made of half a blender full of organic greens and a small portion of fruit will increase HCL levels in the stomach.

3. If these approaches do not work for you you can also buy HCL derived from beets from Premiere Research Labs.

4. Building the friendly bacteria in your stomach comes with letting go of antibiotics and introducing cultured vegetables to your diet. Cultured vegetables are very important to ensure healthy digestion!  Making your own cultured veggies is fun and cost effective.

5. You can also buy a high quality liquid probiotic to assist the body.  Remember that fermented food is the best way to get your probiotics.

6. Coconut Kefir water is a wonderful fizzy beverage that can be sipped on to heal the stomach. If someone has a history of antibiotics you can be sure the body requires lots of probiotic therapy.

7. Enzymes are available in all raw living foods. So any vegetable or fruit that is left in its natural state is rich in enzymes. If you choose to eat cooked food remember that there are enzymes you can purchase to assist in digesting denatured food. If you go to the Products page on my site you can find high quality enzymes.

These are a few tips that I trust will assist you in your journey to a happy, healthy life! Cheers:)

Quick Tip with Coconut Water Kefir

Groceries/Tools:

Buying the Young Coconut Water Kefir at the store for
13 dollars is not necessarily a bad investment. What you can do is save 1/4 cup of the liquid and put in a new bottle with  more fresh organic young coconut water allowing this to ferment over the next 24 to 48 hours will activate the entire amount of liquid. You now have another coconut kefir drink.  This makes that 13 dollar investment worth it.

Always start your day with a lemon ginger blast to wash the system.  Add parsely, carrot tops, and/or dandelion greens to clean blood and strengthen the kidneys/detox the liver.

Take long, slow deep breaths to oxygenate the body and ward off stale energy inside the body which attracts germs and eventually disease.

Note: You have the option of buying a premium quality probiotic such as NCP’s go to; http://www.enzymesandprobiotics.com and purchase here.  Then you have a lot of probiotic to create your coconut water with. The above mentioned recipe is if you may not have the resources to purchase it.

Ever Sure,

The Dodhisattva
