Growth, yummy cauliflower, your song, money and fun, and Abraham


PICK FOR THE DAY:

TIPS FOR THE DAY:

# 1 – Some great looking and sounding recipes using cauliflower….

http://www.rawfor30days.com/blog/2-scrumptious-new-ways-to-eat-cauliflower/

5/4/13 Note: I tried the 1st recipe the other day and loved it…ate the whole thing in one sitting. The “sauce” is great….could be used on a variety of things or as a salad dressing, especially on a nice, crisp spinach salad. Next time I will make a double recipe!

# 2 – A great tradition! May we all remember our song and find people who are willing to sing it with us, to us, and for us!

A Child’s Song By Alan Dana CohenThere is a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor from when they are conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. And when a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and she listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come. And after she’s heard the song of this child, she comes back to the man who will be the child’s father, and teaches it to him. And then, when they make love to physically conceive the child, some of that time they sing the song of the child, as a way to invite it. And then, when the mother is pregnant, the mother teaches that child’s song to the midwives and the old women of the village, so that when the child is born, the old women and the people around her sing the child’s song to welcome it. And then, as the child grows up, the other villagers are taught the child’s song. If the child falls, or hurts its knee, someone picks it up and sings its song to it. Or perhaps the child does something wonderful, or goes through the rites of puberty, then as a way of honoring this person, the people of the village sing his or her song. In the African tribe there is one other occasion upon which the villagers sing to the child. If at any time during his or her life, the person commits a crime or aberrant social act, the individual is called to the center of the village and the people in the community form a circle around them. Then they sing their song to them. The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment; it is love and the remembrance of identity. When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another. And it goes this way through their life. In marriage, the songs are sung, together. And finally, when this child is lying in bed, ready to die, all the villagers know his or her song, and they sing—for the last time—the song to that person. You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song and sing it well. You may feel a little warbly at the moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home. —

# 3 – In my 4/18 post I inadvertantly used the link in Tip #2 again in Tip # 3 as the link to a great article by The Wealthy Spirit author Chellie Campbell on money and fun.

I’ve since corrected the error, so people visiting that page now will be directed to the right place. But I wanted to be sure that those of you who viewed the page previously had a chance to read it, too, so am using it as a tip again today. Plus, it ties in so nicely with today’s Abraham quote (Tip # 5)!

http://chellie.com/blog/?p=5850

# 4 – Today Cultures For Health, a great site for all you seeking ways to eat healthier (I mentioned it in a previous post), is launching their new and improved health blog….

And as a way to celebrate, they are offering a full week of exciting cultured food giveaways:

  • Monday, April 29th: Sourdough Starter
  • Tuesday, April 30th: Milk Kefir Starter Kit
  • Wednesday, May 1st: Yogurt Starter
  • Thursday, May 2nd: Kombucha Starter Kit
  • Friday, May 3rd: Mozzarella and Ricotta Cheese Making Kit
  • Saturday, May 4th: Water Kefir Starter Kit

Go to the Cultures For Health site, sign up for your free e-books on making fermented foods and then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the blog option. Good luck in the giveaway!

# 5 – Joy your way to joy!

“Life is supposed to be fun. You said, “I’ll go forth and choose. I’ll look at the data, and I’ll say yes to this and yes to this and yes to this; and I’ll paint a picture of the things that I want, and I’ll vibrate about them because that’s what I’m giving my attention to. And the Universe will respond to my vibration. And then I’ll stand in a new place where a whole new batch of yeses are available, and I’ll say yes to this and yes to this and yes to this.” You did not say, “I’ll go forth and struggle into joy,” because from your Nonphysical Perspective you know it is vibrationally not possible. You cannot struggle to joy. Struggle and joy are not on the same channel. You joy your way to joy. You laugh your way to success. It is through your joy that good things come.”— Abraham

Glorious gardens, sprouting, radiation update, pep talk, mantra meditations, watch Fresh, and Abraham


PICKS OF THE DAY:

Keukenhof, Netherlands….the world’s largest flower garden. WOW!

 

Another pick is the free 21 Day Mantra Meditation Journey being offered by Deva Primal and Miten. I’m loving this daily time for centering and stillness. The event started a couple of days ago, but it looks like you can still access the recordings of any days you might have missed… or want to revisit (I have been listening to each twice so far) Check it out….time for everyone to go “om.” :-)

http://www.devapremalmiten.com/

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1- Thinking of growing your own sprouts? You may find this informative…

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/04/08/eating-sprouts.aspx?e_cid=20130408_DNL_art_1&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20130408ProdTest3

# 2 – Even though mainstream media has seemed to have more or less forgotten about Fukushima, here’s some things you may want to be aware of…

http://www.naturalnews.com/039828_Fukushima_radiation_media_blackout.html

http://www.naturalnews.com/039924_sea_lions_radiation_California.html

BTW, I mentioned in a previous post that I recently discovered Sea Clear by Shaman Shack, an organic, unpasteurized, non-GMO fermented kelp chlorella miso superfood (also contains tumeric, raw apple cider vinegar and black pepper) that initially looked very unappetizing to me (it took me 2 mos. after ordering it to finally give it a try), but I ended up absolutely loving it. That it is so good for you and helps w/ detoxing heavy metals and radiation (the reasons I initially bought it) are just icing on the cake. Apparently this recipe is based on what the survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki ate to protect and regain their health.

You can get it at Raw Food World and it’s on special right now, so be sure to choose the lower price of the product (plus, I just ordered the 3 pack and saved even more). AND if you use code RAWFOOD155 at check out before the end of April, you can save even more with 15.5% off your entire order. How does it get any better than that?!

# 3 – Your pep talk for the day?

# 4 – For your viewing pleasure…an invite from FRESH…

Here at FRESH, we’re always looking for ways to build the good food movement and reach a tipping point where sustainable food is the rule, not the exception. So to celebrate Earth Day this year, we’d like to continue spreading the word with an exciting initiative: FRESH is available for viewing online for FREE! For a limited time (we do need to pay our bills after all), you can access the full-length film from your desktop. The movie will be available for one week, from Monday, April 22nd through Tuesday, April 30th, so don’t wait to watch! To access the movie, simply click below.

http://action.freshthemovie.com/p/salsa/web/common/public/signup?signup_page_KEY=6608

# 5 – And if reading about Fukushima and radiation is a little unsettling to you, a little “advice” from Abraham…

It is of great value for you to give your conscious attention to what you specifically want, otherwise you can be swept up by the influence of that which surrounds you. You are bombarded by the stimulation of thought. And so, unless you are setting forth the thought that is important to you, you can be stimulated by another’s thought that may or may not be important to you.

— Abraham

Earth Day, meteor shower, praise & gratitude, Being, mighty miso, and Abraham


PICKS FOR THE DAY:

And ways to make every day Earth Day (although, personally, I am against the CFLs mentioned….from all I’ve read they seem to do more harm overall than good)

http://www.care2.com/causes/top-10-ways-to-make-every-day-earth-day.html

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – 

(FYI, Gratitudelog.com is a great place to keep you mindful of praising and celebrating. Be sure and stop by and say “hi” (do a search for Zirah) if you become a member.)

# 2 – Food for thought…

Self-worth is knowing that you already have everything you need and
that you are the person you’ve been waiting for. There is nothing
to reach. There is only BEING and LIVING who you are.

You are worthy because you are one with All That Is.  You don’t
need “self-improvement” because you cannot improve who you are –
your Authentic Self.

The goal in life is not to BECOME who you are, but to ACCEPT who
you are is enough. Said another way, if where you are today isn’t
good enough, then nothing you can do or achieve will ever be good
enough. You can’t be fixed because you are not broken. –Dr. Robert Anthony

(FYI, right now Dr. Anthony is offering 60% off his Secret of Deliberate Creation program, plus a free report on how to make your mind a “money magnet.” You can check out my “What’s New” page for more details.)

# 3 – Have been a fan of miso for a long time, but have never thought of using it in creamier/heavier recipes…

Cream of Miso, Shiitake, Sea Vegetables

We typically think of miso soup as very light and often a good beginning or end to a meal. However, miso’s deep, nutty flavor lends itself well to heavier and richer preparations, especially creamy dressings and soups.

from Everyday Raw Express

BTW, I recently discovered Sea Clear by Shaman Shack, an organic, unpasteurized, non-GMO fermented kelp chlorella miso superfood (also contains tumeric, raw apple cider vinegar and black pepper) that initially looked very unappetizing to me (it took me 2 mos. after ordering it to finally give it a try), but I ended up absolutely loving it. That it is so good for you and helps w/ detoxing heavy metals and radiation (the reasons I initially bought it) are just icing on the cake. You can get it at Raw Food World and if you use code RAWFOOD155 at check out before the end of April you get 15.5% off your entire order. Also check out their at-cost specials. Hdigabtt and weip?!

# 4- The 2013 Food Revolution Summit, a  free event to help you be healthier…

From April 27th-May 5th, John and Ocean Robbins will be personally interviewing 24 of the world’s leading voices in movements for healthy, sustainable, humane and conscious food for all. You can sign up here.

# 5 – And the good news from Abraham….

Take the worthiness that is yours, and let the “Fairies of the Universe” assist you. Stop taking so much responsibility upon yourself, and live happily ever after. Shorten that crevasse between where you are and where you want to be, on every subject, to now, now, now, now, now. Ride the wave. Just pluck the fruit… You don’t have to be the one who puts it in the ground any more. You can just skip across the top of things and pluck the fruit of all of the things you want. “Oh, fruit. Oh, delicious this, delicious this, delicious this, delicious this.” In other words, it’s all right there for you; it’s ready for you to receive it as fast and as soon as you will vibrationally let it in.— Abraham

Love and more love, money and fun, first quarter moon, Inspiring Women Summit, and more!


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Love really IS always the answer…

# 2 – In keeping with the love theme of Tip # 1, here’s a sweet little video about love and paying it forward…

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=320999351353981

# 3 – A great blog post from The Wealthy Spirit author Chellie Campbell that goes along with the affirmation “The more fun I have the more money I make.” Yea, Chellie!

# 4 – First quarter moon and other astrological happenings from astrograph.com…

The First Quarter Moon, taking place early on Thursday morning, traditionally marks a time of increased tension and a phase of difficulty in putting our goal kick across the line. This is a time when, on the highway to the fulfillment of our New Moon desire, the rubber truly meets the road; when we get to see the drawbacks and the limitations to our schemes and dreams, and when the seed idea that looked so good in its abstract perfection must be tested, tried and potentially adjusted in the heat of actual circumstance. With this particular quarter moon, each side of the equation is remarkably strong. In this case the configuration involves Mars in conjunction with the Sun, giving us plenty of contentious go power, and also involves an amplification of the disruptive factor of limiting Saturn in contrasting aspect with tricksterUranus, symbolizing both pushing forward and holding back from our original vision.This is also a period when the urge for relationship is strong, now heralded by the entrance a couple of days back of Venus into its own sign of Taurus. As the pattern of tension represented by this quarter moon perfects, Venusstrongly sextiles dreamy Neptune, bringing idealism, as well as the urgency of Mars, to love affairs and partnership activities, while simultaneously closing in on an opposition aspect to the resistance represented bySaturn. At the same time, Mercury begins to closely conjunct the trickster energy of Uranus. The next few days are interesting, as Mercury, the messenger of the gods, symbolizing communication and mental function, merges with the startling enlightenment of Uranus on Saturday, April 20th. Our thoughts radiate out in all directions toward an exciting but uncertain landing place.By Monday, which is also Earth Day, Venus exactly opposes Saturn, representing practical limitations. It therefore becomes more difficult, and also more lasting, to pledge connection to each other. Over the course of these next few days, a value is placed on limitation itself, as meaningfully embodied in the collective focus of Earth Day for the inherent limits involved with mankind’s extended exploitation of the Earth’s resources.The pressure to move forward with our own inner evolutionary agenda becomes intense as well over these next four weeks, as Uranus and Pluto are closing also on their dynamic aspect with each other, in recognizable closeness of intensity, within 2 degrees, as they head toward perfect fulfillment next month. They come into their exact square on Monday May 20th.Thursday’s First Quarter Moon contains some very appropriate markers for our era. As the Sun and Moon collide in their own twice-monthly square, this time at the endings of the Cardinal signs of Aries and Cancer, the Sabian symbols of their pause for recognition are significant, at the 29th degree of their respective signs. For the Sun “A celestial choir, singing” and for the Moon “A muse weighing new-born twins on golden scales” to which Marc Edmond Jones gave the keyword Value — as he identifies this symbol with “effectiveness of judgment irrespective of momentary contradictions on every hand.”The trials and the adjustments to our relationships, and to ourselves, that this crossroads represents are stimulating and also a test of our moral fiber. We are likely to become naturally more aware of where we shine and where, indeed, we are stuck. And this knowledge, like a dual sword, can be difficult and yet also help us to grow in experience, understanding and character. May we be weighed by our higher selves according to our best intentions and not found wanting in the heat of the moment that we now inhabit, we dwellers on the very cusp of massive change.

 

 # 5 – The Shift Network is sponsoring another free tele-summit

The power of Love, treating allergies, Simone Milasas on money, free Lion Goodman event, astrology update and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Yes!

 

# 2 – A natural way to treat allergies…

# 3 – A few days ago I listened to a presentation by Access Consciousness facilitator and Joy of Business Blogtalk Radio host Simone Milasas.

It was about money, the body and receiving and it’s only 30 minutes long, so easier to fit in your schedule than all these hour and a half presentations being offered by everyone under the sun these days. I really enjoyed it….found it stimulating, enlightening and helpful. Sometimes less really is more. :-)

# 4 – The Shift Network is sponsoring another free event…

# 5 – An astrology update from Chris Flisher of chrisflisher.com.  Sounds like we may be in for a wild ride…

Week of April 15, 2013

The third week of April brings an enormous, almost unbelievable, contribution to history. The number of significant, impactful events that have occurred at this time of year is startling. The Lincoln Assassination (4/14/1865), the sinking of the Titanic (4/14/1912), the Oklahoma bombing (4/20/1995), Waco, Texas (4/20/1993), the birthday of Adolf Hitler (4/20/1889) all occurred in and around the third week of April. Simply incredible. This year brings a certain drama with it as well. A Full Moon Lunar eclipse will occur next week on the 25th, but we could be feeling the impact as soon as this week. We will witness the Sun and Mars entering Taurus on Saturday as Mercury and Uranus align while squaring Pluto at the same time. The conjoining of Mercury and Uranus brings an electrical potential of the highest order. Since Uranus typically vibrates at a higher octave of Mercury, that same sort of sparky, communicative, impulsivity exists. All of this activity sets the stage for a full Moon lunar eclipse next week at 6 degrees Scorpio.
 
# 6 – And a little “mind-twister” from Abraham…

You don’t have to go where you don’t want to be to get where you want to be. You can go from where you are to where you want to be.— Abraham

“Source never wields vengeance or offers punishment, for Source understands you are valuable; you are worthy; you are blessed. Source understands that you never get it done and you cannot get it wrong, and that even when you stand in a place that currently feels wrong, ultimately you will return to what feels right. You can return now to what feels right with an adjustment of your thought process and an adjustment of your vibration and a changing of your point of attraction and a finally letting in of the Well-Being that is flowing to you always.”— Abraham
