“The Rescuing Hug”

babies

The power to heal from within….

This is a very touching story about the first week of life for twins Brielle and Kyrie born in 1995. Each in their own incubator and one was not expected to live due to breathing problems, heart rate was weak and she seemed to be in distress. A hospital nurse breaking the rules moved the weak twin and placed her in the incubator with the strong twin. When they  were put together the stronger of the two embraced the other with what looks to be like a loving hug. Minutes later the twin’s heart beat stabilized and she was no longer in danger of loosing her life.

Superfoods for a vibrant living

Super-Foods

If you suffer from fatigue, anxiety, depression or can’t get yourself to concentrate on anything then maybe you might want to incorporate some superfoods into your daily diet. Superfoods are foods that have super properties that are very beneficial to the body. For example, they may have high levels of antioxidants or they may have a high phytonutrient content (From the greek work “phyto” meaning plant and “nutrient”). Basically these foods are very nourishing and have a high concentration of essential nutrients beneficial to our health.

These are just some of the many superfoods out there:

-Wild Omega-3 rich fish, blue berries and pomegranates, olive oil, nuts, (walnuts,almonds,pine nuts, macadamia),Whole grains ( oats, whole wheat, barley), brown rice, red grapes, garlic and onion, green tea, broccoli, kale, cabbage, spinach, tomatoes, yogurt and dark chocolate

Red Krill- Advanced Omega-3

Bioglan-Red-Krill-Oil-30s_sp12418 Just started taking Krill oil which you can find in any health store or vitamin shop. I bough mine from Boots London and you can probably find it in Holland and Barrett as well. Krill oil and fish oil are very similar in composition,they provide us with omega 3 just as we get it from flax oil or other omega-3 fatty acids.The only difference is that Krill is 80X stronger than fish oil and doesn’t allow you to have an after taste, so there’s no fishy burps …lol. Also, krill oil contains higher amounts of astaxanthin than fish oil. Astaxanthin is a great antioxidant for the body.

What is Ho oponopono?

I sometimes use Ho oponopono when an unwanted thought or memory enters my mind and I don’t want to get stuck in that negative thought pattern. I want to neutralize myself. Ho oponopono was traditionally practiced by healing priests,it is a forgiveness cleansing chant, a hawaiian word which means to correct or make right. Our words and thoughts are made up of energies, we carry them in our human energy field. In order to neutralize these feelings we have to Ho oponopono them. The mantra goes like this -” I am sorry, Forgive me, thank you , I love you. Admitting the fault, asking forgiveness , sending gratitude and unconditional love are all part of the healing process.

Going Green

To get the benefits of chlorophyll I decided to use spinach in my juice this morning. Chlorophyll is a natural internal deodorizer for the body, it is very alkaline and serves as an antioxidant. It prevents and treats most cancers. The chlorophyll pigment is very close to our blood pigment thus the nickname “green blood”.
The combination of spinach, orange,kiwi and cucumber turned out perfect. You can also use apples for extra sweetness. The way to do it is to juice all the fruits and veg in the juicer and then pour into the blender and add the spinach, blend till greeeeeen !

“Every event has a purpose and every setback its lesson. I have realized that failure, whether of the personal, professional or even spiritual kind, is essential to personal expansion. It brings inner growth and a whole host of psychic rewards. Never regret your past. Rather, embrace it as the teacher that it is.”

Argan oil- the Moroccan beauty secret!

470_ArganOil_50ml

I have just received my first bottle of cosmetic Argan oil. All the way from Morocco, this oil comes from the Argan tree, one of the rarest trees in the world only to be found in the south west part of Morocco. The Argan tree can live up to 200 years. Moroccan women make a living out of collecting the Argan nuts and grounding them into an Argan paste and extracting the oil, this process by hand can take up to 10-12 hours per litre. Argan oil is one of Moroccos beauty secrets and has been used for centuries to protect and nourish the skin. In the west it has been gaining popularity as the “miracle ingredient” for the beauty industries, It has extremely high levels of Vitamin E  which helps stop free radical damage. It also contains 80% fatty acids which makes it great for healing many skin aliments like acne, psoriasis, eczema and unwanted scars have all been improved by the oil’s topical application.This unique oil is also perfect as an anti- wrinkle ointment.

Culinary Argan oil on the other hand is a lot different to cosmetic Argan oil. (Please be careful and make sure you read the label properly as they are both processed in different ways and are not interchangeable). Argan oil is not used for cooking but more for garnishing as it has that nutty taste and can be used on salads and other light dishes. It has some great health benefits like lowering cholesterol, strengthening the immune system, increasing circulation and decreasing inflamation in the body.

Where does Consciousness come from and where does it go when we die?

through-the-wormhole-with-morgan-freeman“Through the Wormhole” is a very interesting series of documentaries about science, space and the unknown. The episode “Life After Death” explores consciousness and the mystery of the universe. Morgan Freeman brings to light several theories…  What happens to the soul when we die? Does the consciousness live on or does it cease to exist ? Are we all connected by some sort of higher energy unknown to man? Will we one day become one with the divine creator? ….
