Mind Juice

5 May

DAY 5

I am still going strong with my vegetarian life it is clearly my new obsession. Fruits and Veggies are always on my mind and I get so excited to talk about what I am doing with friends family and even strangers..

So far I have two or three major craving attacks which are normal and will always happen, lets face it this world is surrounded by amazing foods no matter where you go. But I have read that if you drink water and wait at least 10 minutes the craving will subside.It didn’t help that I was dog sitting for my sister and her house was loaded with foods.

Which brings me to something everyone should think about when trying a eating change up in foods. Be prepared with foods you CAN eat! Don’t let the hunger monster come out and destroy your goal. But if it does happen, as simple as is was to begin, start over. Don’t even bat two eyelashes at it, roll over rover, time to get back at it. My favorite way to stay prepared is to make foods ahead and wrap-um, pack-um, stack-um. Leave emergency foods in your bag or car.

Mentally my mind as been sharp and I feel a new found zest in my awareness to life. Things somehow feel brighter in the world and abundance is around me. I am also reading You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero, so that may be my second reinforcement to my greatness and saucy lovey dovey self. I am here universe!!!  I am allowing the good stuff to come my way and in detox of all negative . My source energy has been rebooted and you can do the same. 

It is amazing the capabilities our minds have for achieving what we want. Harness that energy and focus it. It is out there waiting for you, grab it.

The blue moon and New beginings

6 Sep

A blue moon is the appearance of the third full moon in a season that has four full moons, instead of the usual three.[1] It is never visually blue. Because a blue moon occurs only every two or three years, the term blue moon is used colloquially to mean a rare event, as in the phrase “once in a blue moon”…

I was completely unaware of the moon cycle till now. I am understanding why my mother was always tell me that our bodies follow the moon. My life made some major shifts in the past week and a half and I am wondering if others had this flip as well. After this change I started to read about crystals and Chakra Balancing.

My new-found interest resulted me to find a great site http://www.rockwhisperernyc.com

Chakras are described as spinning wheels or vortices of light, but I find explaining them as different colored lightbulbs easier to visualize: The Root is red, the Sacral orange, the Solar Plexus yellow, the Heart green, the Throat turquoise, the 3rd Eye indigo, and the Crown white or violet. When these ‘lightbulbs’ are perfectly balanced, a good amount of electricity (energy) is flowing through them and they are shining brightly. When they are imbalanced, too little energy is flowing through (causing them to be dim), or too much (causing them to be overblown).

Now, to come back to my yoga practice the other day connected with me. It spoke to me in regards of movement and being off in this cycle. I was in a circle for yoga at a new place with new faces. I told the instructor I am a runner with tight shoulders and hips. ( Common story) She positioned the group in a circle and in the cycle of movement I somehow flipped to the wrong side as everyone else, breaking the flow. This small mistake spoke to me in many ways and I am taking it off the mat and making a point to stay centered.
