Raw Butter for Weight Loss and Excellent Health

Butter CurlsButter has gotten a bad rap in the media for being high in cholesterol, but we have not been educated on the fact that natural cholesterol is essential for maintaining intestinal health, for development and detoxification of the brain and nervous system, and for overall bodily function.

Now that we have largely omitted butter from our diets in favor of low fat and fake fat foods, we are lacking the vitamins, minerals and fatty acids in butter which have been protecting us against heart disease, cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, thyroid health, digestion and weight gain.  It’s no wonder that we are so profoundly plagued with these illnesses.

In addition to the omission of this naturally healthy food, many of us are substituting it with margarine or other manufactured spreads.  These products contain toxic cancer-inducing solvents, dangerous trans fat, free radicals, bleach, artificial colors and flavors and/or synthetic vitamins.

When we are healthy, maintaining healthy weight is easy and joyful.  By substituting wholesome butter for unhealthy food in an attempt to lose weight, we hinder our own progress.  Specifically, the toxic substances in margarine or other low calorie or reduced fat spreads actually cause us to gain weight because our bodies are being inundated with substances that are difficult to eliminate.

Moreover, when we eat real butter, we feel satisfied and we are not left with a feeling of deprivation.  The feeling of wanting more causes our bodies to hold on to unwanted weight or makes it hard work to lose weight and keep it off.

While butter in any form is much healthier than any margarine or other manufactured spread, butter is best when it is unpasteurized and from animals that graze on green grass.

Pasteurized (cooked) butter contains irritants in the form of dead bacteria and digestive enzymes which are no longer active – both of which benefit the body when not killed. Raw butter also contains fatty acids which support a healthy immune system, boost metabolism and are anti-microbial, while heated fats often become trapped in the body and store as cellulite.

Butter from grass-fed cows also contains both Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and the perfect balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acid ratio, which are protective against disease and assist the body to build muscle and burn unnecessary body fat.

Supermarket butter is pasteurized and from factory farms where the cows are fed grain and/or corn.  If it does not say 100% grass-fed on the label, it’s most likely grain or corn fed.  Also, toxic chemicals to which animals are exposed are more concentrated in the fat.  For that reason it is important to avoid products from animals treated with antibiotics or hormones.

Here is how the purchase the best butter available to you from most healthful to least healthful:

  • Raw (unpasteurized) butter from grass-fed animals – raised without antibiotics or hormones
  • Raw (unpasteurized) butter from grain/corn fed animals – raised without antibiotics or hormones
  • Raw (unpasteurized) butter from grass-fed animals – raised with antibiotics and/or hormones
  • Raw (unpasteurized) butter from grain/corn fed animals raised with antibiotics and/or hormones
  • Pasteurized butter from grass-fed animals raised without antibiotics and/or hormones
  • Pasteurized butted from grain/corn fed animals raised without antibiotics and/or hormones
  • Pasteurized butter from grass-fed animals raised with antibiotics and/or hormones
  • Pasteurized butter from grain/corn fed animals raised with antibiotics and/or hormones

It’s never recommended under any circumstance to use margarine or artificial spread for the reasons stated above.

Universal Drug Dealing

DrugsThis is not a Conservative or Liberal issue – it is about people being taken advantage of by the media, politicians, big food and big pharmaceutical – all of whom profit from our mindless following of their drug agenda.

Nobody who truly needs medical care is denied it in the United States.  It is already unlawful for hospitals to turn anyone away for inability to pay, State medical aid is presently available  in nearly every state for people who are below a certain level of income, and private charities pick up the rest of the slack.

Despite this, many of us have been conditioned to believe that we are allowing low income Americans to die off for lack of medical care.  News programs broadcast about how terrible it is that so many people are not getting the “treatments” they need –  then they cut to a commercial about the newest miracle drug that will supposedly make you feel much happier than you feel right now.  It’s brainwashing between the brainwashing!

Broken bones and necessary surgeries are minimal compared with all the damaging drugs and harmful surgeries that are running up healthcare costs and weakening our vitality. “Conditions” are made up by the medical community to identify what is really an imbalance.  They address imbalances by creating more imbalances with drugs and unnecessary surgery.

It starts as children – parents entrust their children’s health to corporate greed by allowing government recommended immunization drugs to be injected directly into their small bodies from the time they are born.  When children suffer side effects from those immunizations, they are brought back to the doctor for some more drugs which cause more side effects.  This continues throughout the course of their lives unless they become conscious of what is being done and decide to break the cycle.

We’ve been well trained to take over the counter or prescription drugs whenever we don’t feel well.  If we consult a medical doctor for our illness, tests are performed which usually indicate that some level does not fall within the range considered “normal”.

From there they consult their black book which dictates which drug or drugs to prescribe.  After we have been on several drugs, and they stop masking the symptoms, doctors resort to surgery to attempt to cut the problem out.  Then we have a bigger problem which requires more drugs, and the cycle repeats itself.

When we are suffering from depression, dread, lethargy or other symptoms of unresolved emotion, instead of dealing with the shadows in our minds, we turn to medicine for a cure.  The prescribed drugs return us to being “productive” zombies who serve the powers that be – basically working to grow our government and enrich giant corporations and the politicians who cater to them.

The definition of drug addict is “a person with a chemical or psychological dependency on a drug”.   Since many of us have been conditioned by media and medical doctors – who are largely influenced by pharmaceutical companies – most of society will only apply this definition to people who use street drugs.

It’s presently commonplace for more than 50% of Americans to take powerful prescription drugs on a daily basis because we are convinced that we need them in order to feel good and/or be healthy.  We are very much addicted to drugs that are not only expensive, but cause side effects that create the “necessity” for more drugs.

Now that we have become a largely processed food addicted, drug dependent society, many of us are practically begging the government to be our codependent, and take more of the money we earn to pay for our addiction while further enriching politicians and corporate giants.  We boldly claim entitlement to our medicine because we really believe that only it can provide the quality of life that we deserve.

The truth is that “medicine” does not cure anything.  It actually promotes the proliferation of illness while providing temporary comfort.  What has been labeled a health care crisis is really a drug dependency crisis.

Our hands our not tied in this.  Each of us can start doing our part now to stop this crisis, decrease the size of government, and increase the health of Americans.  If you or someone you love is currently taking any kind of medical drug whether over the counter or prescription – stop taking them now!

If you believe that your health will deteriorate without the drug or that stopping could be dangerous, seek help from a practitioner who can help your body heal itself by bringing your energy back into balance.  These specialists focus on getting you feeling great while eliminating drug dependency.

If you are considering getting any immunizations for yourself or for your children, educate yourself.  You will most likely find that the risks far outweigh the benefits of immunization.  Please visit Think Twice.

Also of great importance is to buy as little food manufactured by large corporations as possible.  Shop at local farmers markets or small stores that cater to artisan farmers instead.   Check out this link to find a local farmers market near you:  Local Harvest.  For meat and dairy, the highest quality products can be found here: US Wellness Meats – they offer 100% grass-fed products – their dairy is unpasteurized and their meat has not been irradiated.

Our health is now and has always been in our own hands.  When we realize this, we will have the reform we need without resorting to our own enslavement through governmental control and higher taxes.

Trust

Put your perspective out there.  Let the universe know what you want, and it will deliver!

The universe always delivers the vibratory match to our predominant expectations. Trust is synonymous with Knowledge. Whenever anyone knows something is possible, it becomes possible.

When we know that something is ours, we can expect to receive the guidance necessary to manifest it. Specifically, from the vantage point of knowledge, we send out a powerful vibratory pattern which is answered by the universe, and we become more receptive to the cues and clues that direct us toward that which we have chosen.

Once your request has been made, know that the answer has already been given.  Instead of struggling for worldly intelligence, trust that all necessary information will come to you, and be prepared to recognize and act upon it.

Moreover, by paying attention to our thoughts and consciously reaching for trust around any subject, we promote peace of mind. Indeed, mental shadows presented as Stress, Anxiety, Depression and Anger can only fade away when we allow the light of Trust to illuminate the recesses of mind in which they dwell.

When negative emotion occupies less of our time, more of our mental and creative energy is directed toward our awareness of, and action upon, the answers we are receiving.

Trust! And let it be so.

God is Love

Heart ChakraLove is the true nature of every human being.  Our spirit is pure Love, and contrary to many belief systems, we are not inherently wicked, evil or sinful.  The belief that we are anything other than Love comes from our identification with mind.

Through mind identification, we have conditioned ourselves with the idea that we must be unholy because the mind capable of what we consider “evil”.  When we recognize that mind is nothing more than a tool for identifying and filtering the information we receive through our senses, we can be open to our true Loving nature.

Through the filter of mind, we sense the experiences of this time-space reality.  Mind subconsciously evaluates everything.  When our internal response to experiences is extreme emotion, our bodies and brains become attuned to repeat those patterns in the mind.

When we are in any emotion that is short of an expression of Unconditional Love, we feel less at ease in our minds and/or in our bodies.  This is because the core of our Being is pure Love, and our mind’s identification with anything less is resistant to our true essence.

We are made aware that we are in a destructive thought pattern through uncomfortable or painful feelings in the body and/or mind.  If we try to ignore or resist those feelings, we may feel better from a thinking standpoint.  But unless we expose those patterns to the Light of awareness, the brain and body become even more attuned to the patterns that caused our dis-ease as we accumulate more life experience.

Many of us look outside ourselves for that which is pure and holy while continuing to condition our mind identified beliefs that we are powerless and sinful.  Indeed, the mind’s propensity to separate self from Love has even induced the human mind to create gods who are separate from us.

It’s difficult to see ourselves as pure positive beings when we believe ourselves to be separate from what we know as “God”, the source of all love, joy and knowledge.  However, when we honor the holiness of all things in creation, we also realize that we are separate from nothing – and we are especially not separate from Love aka God.

The reality is that God is Love, and Love is the source of everything, including the human spirit.  By exposing the shadows created by mind to the light of the Love within us, the shadows fade away without fight or resistance.  This can be accomplished through Transforming our Emotions.

When we connect with the source of everything, God is expressed as the unlimited power within each of us.

Managing Opportunity

Child Climbing StairsOpportunity is presented through adversity around anything from personal finances, health or relationships to global conflict or government.  Life tends to present obstacles as opportunities for expansion.  Whether we use those opportunities as stepping stones, or as anchors is entirely up to us.

Many of us tend to define ourselves by the adversity we are currently experiencing.  When we do not consciously recognize adversity as opportunity, our subconscious thought patterns keep us entrenched in the emotion evoked by the experience of the adversity itself.

Missed Opportunities:

When we focus on adversity, it evokes negative emotion.  That emotion sends out a vibratory pattern which speaks to every cell in our bodies and emanates out into the universe.  In this way, every emotion sends out a request for more of the experience that evokes it.

Opportunities for improvement are all around us, but when we predominantly strengthen the vibration of what we perceive as adversity (through comments and thoughts about what we want changed), those opportunities cannot come into our awareness. Instead of directing our attention and focus toward ideas, circumstances and people that could facilitate the improvement we seek, many of us remain stuck in the adversity of our current experience.

This is why we tend to experience the same or similar unwanted circumstances, situations and people throughout the course of our lives.

How To Identify Opportunities And Make Them Work For You:

Focus on something in your life that evokes negative emotion, and take note of how that emotion feels physically in your body.  Notice any tension or sick-like feelings.

Practice long, deep breathing while focusing on releasing the tension and/or ill feeling.   With a calm mind and a relaxed body, you can begin to direct your focus toward that which needs improvement.

Once you are aware of which thought pattern evokes a particular emotion, imagine which thoughts around the same subject would feel better to you.  From there, allow yourself to feel the emotion of the improved thoughts.  That improved emotion sends out a brand new vibratory pattern which is a more accurate description of what you want.

When the improvement has been identified, all subsequent self-limiting thoughts around the adversity which gave rise to your preference for improvement are no longer necessary.  Stay present with your thoughts, and continue to improve negative feelings by focusing on your preference for improvement.

When first learning this technique your subconscious mind will continue to offer the familiar thoughts that keep you focused on adverse conditions.  Accept those thoughts, but realize they are projecting for the opposite of what you want, and offer thoughts that focus you back toward the desired improvement.

When we predominantly focus on how it will feel once we have what we want, we become exhilarated by the challenge being presented.  In the state of exhilaration, information for the improvement we seek naturally becomes available.

As you continue from the vibration of that which you want, stay alert for opportunities, information, and people that come into your awareness.  When the information matching your conscious vibration is received, your actions will feel inspired – almost as if you are taking no action at all.

Remember that many times we need only to change the way we are thinking about a particular subject in order to see improvement in our lives.  Stay open to that possibility as well.

By minding our minds and managing our emotions, we promote joyful, abundant lives for ourselves and for those around us.

Raw Aged Meat

Raw SteakMy husband loves to eat 100% grass-fed raw, aged red meat.  He feels alive, healthy and highly energized from meat that has been thinly sliced (carpaccio style) and stored in a glass jar for at least 2 weeks.

The meat goes through a stage where it becomes brown and turns a bit stinky, but then it evolves further until its red color returns as vibrant as ever.  When eaten, the meat has a nice robust flavor, without any offensive taste or odor.

Raw aged meat is both healthy and delicious because it contains Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB).  LAB hinder spoilage and the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms (bacteria, virus, yeast, fungus which can cause disease in unbalanced quantities), and contribute to healthy microflora (good bacteria) which is necessary for healthy mucosal surfaces (inner linings throughout the body).

Don’t try this with cooked meat – all of the bacteria and enzymes die, so that the cooked portion becomes fertile soil for the unbalanced growth of certain microorganisms – making it extremely dangerous to eat for obvious reasons.

Headache Relief

HeadacheEach of the methods listed below addresses physical and/or energetic blockages which are the real cause of headaches.  Try them, and see how they work for you!

1.  Drinking naturally sparkling (no CO2 added) mineral water with lime juice and 1 tbl of unheated honey supplies the necessary enzymes, hydration, oxygen and alkalizing minerals to help your body eliminate the physical and energetic blockages that can cause headache.  Also, be mindful of any food cravings, and eat the fresh, raw version of those foods.

2. Lie in a comfortable position and practice long deep breathing with focus on the breath until a very calm feeling comes over you.  Then allow any thoughts that spontaneously come to mind and be present with them, just noticing what feelings come up.  With each thought and feeling, gently remind yourself that all is well, and that you are free to release all tension around the thoughts that evoke any feeling of tension.

3.  While sitting in a comfortable position, breathe with normal but somewhat forceful breath – in while bringing your shoulders up like shrugging, and out while letting your shoulders come down – Repeat 20-30 times.  This can readjust the bones in the neck and head.

4.  Accupressure is another method used to release blocked energy and restore balance to the body: With the middle or index finger and thumb of one hand, apply pressure to the area between the thumb and index finger of the other hand (see illustration).  Apply various amounts of pressure to different points in this area until the pain is reduced to a more comfortable level.  Using the same amount of pressure – use small, gentle circular movements on that point for 1-2 minutes, then release the pressure gradually.

When experiencing a headache that is the result of detoxification (such as after alcohol), supplying the body with drugs (including headache medicine) or toxic food/drink can alleviate the symptoms quickly.  While this is great for temporarily getting back in the swing of things, this also creates more toxicity which may create more unhealthful symptoms in the future, and is thus not recommended for optimum health.

How to Practice Long Deep Breathing

This is a very relaxing and relieving breath technique:

– Relax the facial muscles – let all tension in the face release

– Keep the lips gently closed – all breathing will be through the nose

– Take a slow, deep breath through the nose so that your breath fills the bottom of your abdomen (near the pelvic floor first), and allow the breath to fill and expand the abdomen, then feel it move up the lower back as the muscles around the spine expand.  From there, allow the breath to fill the chest from bottom to top, until the breath moves into the throat area.

– On the exhale, gently and slowly release the breath from the throat, chest, sides of the spine and abdomen.

– At the end of the exhale, contract the abdominal muscles in order to express all of the breath.

Throughout this way of breathing keep the breath long and light, with no pause (not holding the breath) at any time, even between the inhale and exhale.

Everything is God

God is  within everything and everything is within God – there can be no duality.  Thus religious references to God can be taken as metaphors for the combined universal consciousness; and references to the devil or evil as the workings of the human mind.

All of us are inherently divine, it is only when we identify with the illusion of this time-space reality that our true identity becomes shrouded by mind.

In this regard, when more of us connect to the source of our being and live from our true nature – which is love, joy and knowledge – we will bring about peace aka heaven on Earth.

Instinctual Eating

I can tell which foods are good for my body  by imagining how they are going to feel both during and after I eat them.  I want to predominantly enjoy foods that evoke feelings of calm and rejuvenation in my body and in my mind.

By following my likes instead of my dislikes and by giving into my cravings instead of ignoring them, I create a very positive relationship with food while also creating a more positive and joyful experience for myself and for the people I affect.

I am naturally attracted to whole food in its raw form, and I eat or drink as much as I need to feel satiated.  I tend to focus more on one to three foods during any given time-frame, lasting from hours to several months.

For example – some days I could require a lot of raw milk, and then go for weeks without it.  I could go several months eating 1-2 avocados per day, then have no desire for them for the next several months; I tend to eat extra fruit in the summertime; sometimes I eat a lot of soaked and dehydrated nuts; and when I was pregnant, I did not want chocolate much at all (which is not like me).

By choosing from primarily fresh, raw food and paying attention to my cravings and desires, I am instinctively giving my body and brain the nutrients necessary to achieve radiant health.
