Revive Your Soul…..

Some of the best times I remember growing up, are the memories of my sister and I foraging for wild blackberries on a hot summer day in Western Pennsylvania. We would get dressed in long sleeves and pants to protect us from the thorns and bugs. Each of us carried a basket and would fill it affectionately with those berries. The big, plump, black ones that would whisper to us, they were indeed ready for a cold soak in some raw cream delivered by the milk man:) Yes we had a local milk man that delivered straight to the front door and those berries got to swim in a bowl of fresh cream from a glass bottle. As we sat next to each other at the big wooden table we would count our blackberries one by one.

After a snack like that we would be back out on the land exploring the neighbors blueberry patches, playing near the stream, or doing whatever our imagination’s conjured up. Our imaginations were a part of what made our childhood the best one ever.

Mom would yell loud from the front stoop it was time to come in for dinner and some how we always heard her call from wherever we were.

Our days were filled with streams, rivers, walking next to the train tracks at Uncle Jeff’s mountain home, chasing the river to the waterfall, playhouses, neighboring farms and soulful journeys.

The innocence, sensitivity, beauty, enthusiasm, purity and playfulness the soul seeks gives deep nourishment to our lives.  As adults it is what brings about the conscious return to innocence.  We then complete our journey & seal the matrix.

A Writer’s Inspiration

What is it you did as a child that made you light up? Bring that back to your reality however you can.

For me it is being with nature, the sounds of nature, the beauty of nature, the magick of nature. I find myself now living near a river, waterfall, train tracks and near some of the best spring water a girl could ask for. Living in a small town with big dreams is a joy for the soul and it offers so much. It allows us to see the small details of life yet accomplish our biggest dreams. The stillness a small town offers us let’s us get into a feeling state to revive and nourish the soul, it draws in the most extraordinary and mundane of individuals giving it character and grace. It is a writer’s inspiration.

The train that rolls through allows for so many eccentric, transient individuals to pass through. The other day two kids came through town with their instruments. They started  playing out front of the old theater at 7 in the morning rocking out giving the town character.  The conversations I had with them were inspirational and full of wonder.

Other days I here live, soulful Jazz from the courtyard a block away. Time for a walk down to the free concert and a little dancing for the soul in us all. Oh the wonder of a small town.

There is a little cafe that sits across the street from my window.  It is only open 4 days a week (maybe something more businesses could adopt to save their souls:)), but there is something about the days they are open that is fun to watch.  The fresh greens  and chantrelle’s are brought in from a local forager, the owner sharing his unique gifts to serve the community, the trucks dropping off goods from around the area, travelers from all over the world making reservations to dine at this hidden gem.

My latest harvest of wild plums and blackberries:)

Whatever it is that nourishes your soul go do that and watch as it becomes super charged fulfilling its’ purpose and mission in life. Let your soul shine as it is what requires the healing..the body always follows suit. Activate your Super Senses, let your soul be the guide. Revive the Soul.

Living on Life Food

A few weeks ago I embarked on my Spring  Liver Gallbladder Flush and this time I utilized the work of genius Dr. David Jubb to faciliate a deeper flush.  He was the one of the many pioneers that coined the words “Life Food”.   I am so inspired to share the work of Dr. David Jubb here because he has been an inspiration to so many people along the health path.    If you are inspired to learn from the master himself please do. A Shaman, top Natural Lifestyler,  neurobehavioral physiologist, microspocist, a blood formation specialist and an expert in nutrition  Dr. Jubb has a deep innerstanding of the human life form. Some of his teachings are pretty deep in Science if you like that kinda thing, if not you can still get A LOT from his concepts and the Life Food Recipe Book.  Otherwise check out plenty of his talks on line.

Blending my Life Soup.

He recommends eating only foods that would grow in the wild and to stay away from hybrid starchy foods that are only grown for mass production. These would include things like carrots, dates & bananas which cause run away sugars in the system and ultimately cause challenges in the liver.  He recommends doing a 2 week Life Food fast which consists of blended foods and a series of liver gallbladder flushes during the 2 week phase. You can find his work online and purchase any of his books to assist you with the cleanse. The Life Food Recipe Book was of great assistance to me. You can also contact me for guidance with the program.  I love liquid nutrition so it was a joy for me to create recipes from his life food book and then begin to create my own blended liquid light after I got the hang of his concepts.  The blended foods he suggest are very sustaining due to most of them being blended as whole foods so the fiber is intact. I was always quite full after a small bowl of Life Soup.  I thoroughly enjoyed creating these soups daily along with Sprouted nut mylks, electrolyte lemonade w/ superfoods added, green vegetable juices and fermented beverages.

So what are the benefits of Life Food?

1. For one it is great for anyone with digestive issues as the food is blended giving the digestive tract a much needed break.

2. It wakes up dormant DNA

3. Improves cellular function and rejuvenates the cell structure.

4. Gives the body nourishment on the cellular level. Great for those with nutrient deficiencies.

5. Enzyme rich foods full of life power create an enzyme reserve in the body so the pancreas has a loaded bank account! Enzymes equal light and light equals a more radiant you!

6. Improves Liver Function

These are just a few of the benefits, try it for yourself and write me with your experience. Some have better bowel movements, increased energy and an over all sense of well being.

Here is a suggestion below for an incredible Life Food Soup:

Step 1:  Juice Celery, Lemon, Cucumber  (about 3/4-1 pint)

Step 2: Fill the blender with the juice and then add in seasonal greens like cilantro, wild dandelion greens, wild grass (its growing everywhere around you) red bell pepper, miso paste, turmeric, pink salt, habanero pepper, avocado, sea veggies, nutritional yeast and a handful of soaked sprouted pumpkin seeds..for the zinc!.

Step 3: Blend and serve. Top with slices of sun-dried tomato, avocado or spirulina powder. I also love to add a superfood powder that Dr. Marshall makes called Premier Tomato Concentrate.  It is mineral rich and great to add to foods if you are not foraging wild foods daily. Wild foods give us more independence, more love and more truth inside ourselves! Eat more of those and Eat Less dense foods to feel & look your best.

You can do so many variations and it is so fun creating different colors and flavors with these life giving soups.

The liver and gallbladder flushing is something you can incorporate inside the 2 week blended food lifestyle. I enjoyed doing both a liver and gallbladder flush (the difference being how much oil you consume for each).

Spring has sprung and most of us have had the gut feeling to cleanse our mind, bodies and spirits in some fashion. It is also the full moon which can empower us more to give us strength to move forward with these decisions. Stand out in the full moon tonight and get super charged by that full moon.  Your battery will be on power mode!  Spring is truly the beginning of the New Year…as is shared within the Zodiac. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac so as we re-birth at this time and especially this week we die to our ego now and come back a new being we can feel our life power more profoundly.

Sage the Great Healer.

I wanted to connect with you today about the incredible power of Sage. This herb is an incredible purifier and I recommend several different uses for it. If you have potent ways to utilize this medicine please do share in the comments below.

Sage

Lately I have been listening to the call of this miraculous herb. It has found its way into our home in several facets. For one I named our house after it.  It is a beautiful reminder that this home is one of pure intentions and vibrations.  It is a sacred home to create from. What is the name of your home? What could you name your home so that every time you spoke it, it inspired you in some way?

So, a few months back I was up in Ojai, CA with some friends whom had harvested a bunch of local Sage.  We ended up making sage sticks out of it on our trip to Santa Cruz.  This Sage is a wonderful home & spirit purifier. I utilize these sage sticks to cleanse the entrances of the home, the rooms, doorways and any one inside the home.  I feel the healing effects and as I walk the parameters of the house I enjoy saying a prayer that all good spirits abide here and only those of the MOST HIGH dwell here.

Other Medicinal Uses of Sage,
The Great Healer

Next I like to create a steamed decoction of dried sage or you can use essential oil of Sage for this. Simply put 3 drops of HI-FI Sage Oil in a glass pot and then pour some boiling spring water over the oil. Put a large towel over your head and inhale the vapors.  This will clean out the lungs and the folds of the lungs. One of the most potent medicines for the lungs.  We breathe in many bacterias and viruses and Sage is one of the most potent ways to clear mucus and other impurities.  This method also gives you a Sage Facial.  You can also let the Sage simmer so that the home is filled with its healing essence.

Salt Inhaler

Next, enjoy Sage in your Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler to continue to purify the lungs. You can purchase a salt inhaler on line or at your health food store. Add a couple drops of Sage Essential Oil to the crystals and enjoy clean air on a plane, in the car or even just have it around the house. I like to keep it out and utilize it during breath work.

I also grow Sage, well I guess it wouldn’t quite be “The Sage House” without growing it here right?  I enjoy taking some of the fresh herb and mincing it into salads and making hot tea with it. It’s truly potent and yummy!  You can even create a cultured seed or nut cheese and infuse the mixture with sage.  It makes for a quite decadent and sophisticated cheese plate! Serve along side a glass of Coconut water Kefir Champagne or Jun!

Sage is a remedy for colds, fevers and respiratory infections. It is quite powerful for the treatment of nervous system challenges and digestive issues too. It has been uses for excessive uterine bleeding and for the reversing of gray hairs. In fact the list of remedies go on and on for this herb.

Sage Essential oil is enjoyable to wear as a natural perfume. I have found it to be similar to vetiver in its grounding qualities. You can find both of these essential oils here: Living Libations

Thanks for stopping by the Sacred Backyard and the Sage House.  I love YOU!
