I HAVE NO ENERGY!!! January 19, 2014

We all at some time or another have made this statement. I would say that this is the number one reason most of my clients meet with me, they have no energy, are dragging through their day, and are searching for a reason and a fix.

When I first began my work, the first thing I would do is assess the individual’s diet, as generally the first thing a professional looks at is nutrition. You put out what you take in. However, as I continue in my path to heal, I have come to find that 90% of the time diet is not the only problem. My belief is that all physical starts as emotional, spiritual or mental. Your subconscious mind brings you to awareness of these issues by physical symptoms such as: inability to digest food, headaches, body aches, sore throats, irritable bowel, etc. I believe that one of the main issues of fatigue, especially chronic fatigue is not just about what your eating, but what you are thinking.

Think of your energy like a bank account inside your body, which starts off completely full. What are you spending this energy on? Do you have poor energy management skills?

Pretend you start out with 100 energy points. When you wake up what is the first thing you do? Do you worry about something? (-5 energy points) do you complain that you have to go to work? (-5 energy points) do you dwell about something your did wrong in the past (-10 energy points). So, before you leave your bed your down to 80 points.

You then turn on the news. Everything you watch is absolutely negative, your spending EVEN MORE energy on this. Your lucky you have even 50 energy points left by the time you leave the house. Not only are you loosing energy by partaking in these things, but you are now vibrating these feelings of negativity and worry into the universe. No matter what you are thinking, past or present, you give that vibration off into the air, and the universe comes back with the exact same vibration. Starting your day expending your energy on worry and doubt will bring more of this to you. Watching negative things on TV will bring more negative things to manifest. So, not only are we wasting energy on things that deserve none of our attention, but we are creating more things to take our energy away!

What if instead of waking up and worrying, the first thing you did when you woke up was give thanks for your amazing life, the house you live in, even the toothbrush you use to brush your teeth. What if instead of watching something negative with your morning meal (which disturbs digestion any way) you listened to a positive message instead. Instead of depleting your energy your building it. You now have more energy than you started with when you woke up!

I believe we need to focus more on our energy management skills and improve this aspect of our lives before we even start to change our diets. As you go through your day, think before you react. Is it worth spending energy points on? Think about this carefully.

When on your way to work you get a flat tire. How will you spend your energy points on this situation? Swearing (-4) Yelling (-10) Worrying (-5) Being annoyed and angry the whole time you change the tire (-10). Or do you simply get out of the car CALMLY, assess the situation and think “well, maybe there is a divine purpose for this flat tire”, calmly change it, and head on your way?

We all have the choice on how we handle and react in a situation. How do you want to spend your energy? Worrying, yelling, and getting upset or angry does nothing but burn you out and ATTRACTS MORE OF THAT TO YOU. Every time you spend an energy point, that point goes out into the universe and the universe gives that point back in the exact way it was received. Remember this before you react, and think about how you want to spend your points.

You Are What You Eat October 5, 2011

Today as I went for a hike with my dog, I sat in the woods and looked around me. The plants, the trees, the earth. Its the most beautiful thing ever to be. I started to think about my journey of raw foods, and about myself as a child, a teenager, and now as an adult. I have always had a connection with the earth, but not like I do now. I thought about my personality, and how it has changed and how it hasnt. What I noticed most was my change in attitude, temper, stress level and inner strength. Since being a raw foodist, I noticed that my stress levels have dropped drastically, my temper is non existent compared to what it was, my attitude is always positive, and my inner strength is as strong as it has ever been. I feel more spiritual than ever, almost the way I was as a small child. I truly believe all of this has come about due to my increase in raw plant foods and a decrease in flesh consumption. Here are my thoughts on the matter.

Temper: When we think about where our flesh product comes from, most of us consume it from factory farms. We have to think of the animal we are consuming in order to better understand its emotion. When an animal is being tortured, fed the wrong food, and witnesses the death of its friends, it no doubt feels anger and resentment towards humans. If this does not seem possible to you I encourage you to watch videos of animals being slaughtered in front of one another, and you will see their reaction highly similar to that of humans, only difference being of course, animals do not speak the same language as us. When we then consume that animal, we are consuming all of the negativity inside that animal. We are consuming the DNA of another creature. It has now become a part of us. We must also take into consideration that the burger you are eating does not have the DNA of just one cow, but the DNA of up to 1,000. Consuming this much anger from many different animals has got to take a toll us in some way whether it be physical or emotional. When looking around the woods at all of the living trees and plants, taking in their beauty, and feeling their vibrations, it is great to think that I take on that positive high energy vibration.

Stress Level: Animals endure intense amounts of stress when they are being bred and slaughtered and therefore release a lot of cortisol into their system, which we then consume. Many people complain of their increased levels in cortisol from their own stress, but then proceed to consume more of it at their meals. Eating a diet rich in raw plant foods not only eliminates this factor, but also builds your stress defense shield. Foods such as Maca and Goji Berries do just that and increases your bodies ability to cope with stress.

Inner Strength: I feel the reason an individual becomes so much stronger on a plant based diet is the simple fact that it forces the body to create certain things. In other words, it forces it to problem solve and work. Yes, plant foods are much easier to digest, but look at it this way. When you put animal fat into your body, your body recognizes it as fat and processes it as fat. When you put  a plant fat into your body, since plants are so low in fat, your body must figure out what the fat is, where the fat is, how it van be utilized, and must use inner power to create the fat. Another example of this could be a caffeinated beverage. (Yes this is a plant source, but it will clear the subject). When one consumes caffeine, your Central Nervous System becomes stimulated. You begin to act quickly without having to put much thought behind your action because the caffeine is forcing you to do so. In a way it is making you lazy. The caffeine is doing all of the work. When you yourself decide to act quickly, steadily, and with high concentration, you take energy from your inner self to create that ability. It is making your inner self stronger. Also think about a plant. They absorb the sunlight and produce their own food themselves. The vibrational energy and cellular activity within a plant is incredibly high due to this fact alone. The reason we feel so energetic is not just based on the vitamin content of the plant, but also based on this fact. When plants are consumed just after being picked, you will notice a completely different type of strength and energy running through your body than if you were to pick it and eat it three days later.

Attitude: With stress levels at their minimum, my temper low, and inner strength high, of course my attitude towards life is going to be quite positive and uplifted.

I am in no way saying a plant based diet is for everyone. I am not asking you to change your diet to that of a plant based one. I will however ask you to think about the people you know who are on a high animal based diet, those on a medium, and those on a plant based diet. Compare them in the above attributes. Do the heavy meat eaters seem lazy with a lack of will power and negative attitudes? How do they compare to the individuals who only consume meat a few times a week. How about compared to those on a plant based diet?

Then do the final comparison: Those on a cooked plant diet vs. those on a raw plant diet.

Im sure your own findings will speak for themselves.
