An Inspiration To Love Again

A broken heart and pained soul wants to give up on love altogether.

The reason to give love another shot, We’ve learned, is that by loving better and deeper, we become even more whole. Our hurt and tears clear the fog around our heart and illuminate the soul. The journey to love is a journey to one’s self, your highest, most sacred and loving self.

 

Here are a few ways to open up to love again.

 

Let go of pain.

You can’t let go of pain by resisting it. You could avoid the pain for some time, but in order to move forward you must fully embrace the pain. Embracing the pain means experiencing loss, grief and sadness.

 

The only way to stop blaming others is to forgive them. No matter how grave the offense or how unacceptable their behavior, your healing begins when you let go. Yes, it was unfair; yes, it was injustice; and yes, they did you wrong. But there’s nothing to be done now but forgive.

 

Let go of resistance.

Although love can be painful and heart-breaking, be willing to open your heart anyway. Love can only bloom if you’re open to love in your life. Set the intention for love to enter again. Be open to meeting new people, be open to being vulnerable, and be open to falling in love again.

 

Let go of shutting down.

When you close your heart and feelings to others, you may avoid pain but you’ll also miss out on happiness and joy. Seek to be your most honest self. Instead of shutting down, be yourself in the world, which will only make you more attractive. By being true to yourself, you’ll also attract people who are a better fit for you.

 

Let go of your blocks keeping you from experiencing divine love. Let go and choose love again.

Intuitive Eating: Food Journal

Nutrition therapy is about making changes that improve your relationship with food and your health. Food journals are one of a variety of therapeutic tools used during treatment for an eating disorder. Food journals or logs are also referred to as food records which can take many forms. Some people prefer to write things down free form in a personal notebook while others do best filling out the prepared charts provided by their nutritionist. Many others have gone tech-friendly by using an app on their phone to track info and share it. Regardless of the form it takes, a food journal does much more than track your food. A helpful format for food journals that include the time of day, a description of the snack or meal, the food and beverage intake, setting of the meal and, most importantly, the individual’s thoughts and feelings before, during and after eating.

 

Completing food logs and reviewing them can be a pretty powerful part of the recovery process. Not surprisingly, and perhaps because they can be so powerful, many individuals also experience some resistance to using them. If you’ve ever been encouraged to complete food logs as part of your treatment for an eating disorder but had trouble starting or committing to the process, we thought it might help to know why a nutritionist would recommend doing them and the specific ways in which they can assist in the recovery process.

 

Keeping a food journal provide insights into your bigger picture and provide a way to monitor progress. The journal communicates specific details from each meal, but they also show trends and patterns over the course of the week related to meal times, location, situational triggers and thoughts. Small weekly goals that create momentum towards overarching goals and bigger changes over time takes the pressure off of you to recall from memory the details of your food and symptom use from the past month.

 

Returning to a normal and healthy relationship with food means appropriately responding to hunger and fullness signals. It’s impossible to do that when your signals are broken from chaotic or disordered eating. The best thing to get your digestive system and metabolism back on track is structured eating which means adequate amounts of food with adequate frequency. Food journals aid in structured eating accountability, and structured eating over time sharpens your signals and helps you get to a place of intuitive eating.

Inner Work

Having done a lot of inner work (by means of cognitive therapy, music therapy, specialization therapy, regression therapy, healing, meditation, yoga, channeling) we thought we kind of knew our dark parts and had more or less transcended them. Well we were mistaken! It took a year for us to realise that it is wiser for us to embrace and make peace with the dark side, rather than fight it, because fighting it made it worse while accepting it, finally, gave a deep sense of relief and a new awareness of the miracle of life.

Go Vegan: Plant-Based Diet

Everyone wants to feel healthier, lighter and more vibrant. Vegans eat plant-based foods, such as grains, beans, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. While vegans have a wide variety of foods to choose from, the diet may seem very restrictive to those who are used to an omnivorous diet. Just like veganism is the sustainable option when it comes to looking after our planet, plant-based living is also a more sustainable way of feeding the family.

 

More and more people are turning to a vegan diet for the health benefits: increased energy, younger looking skin and eternal youth are just some of the benefits from enthusiastic plant eaters.

Well-planned plant-based diets are rich in protein, iron, calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals. The plant-based sources of these nutrients tend to be low in saturated fat, high in fiber and packed with antioxidants, helping navigate some of the world’s biggest health issues like heart disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer.

 

What Do Vegans Eat?

A vegan diet is richly diverse and comprises all kinds of fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, seeds, beans and pulses – all of which can be prepared in endless combinations that will ensure you’re never bored. From curry to cake, pastries to pizzas, all favorites can be suitable for a vegan diet when they’re made with plant-based ingredients.  It is a whole new world of exciting foods and flavors opening up to you.

 

Benefits of a Vegan Lifestyle 

 

There are so many unique reasons someone might choose to adopt a vegan lifestyle. Every year more and more people are making the decision to go vegan, and it is for a good reason! There are many amazing ways that veganism can improve lives – fantastic health benefits, less stress on the environment, more efficient ways to use resources, and many more!

When thinking about transitioning to veganism it’s important to contemplate the reasons why this lifestyle speaks to you. A big lifestyle change is easier to sustain when you wholeheartedly believe in your decision. Think about the standards you hold yourself accountable to, and also what guides you as you decide what is right and what is wrong.

 

Health Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet 

A vegan lifestyle can be one of the healthiest ways to live. Plant-based diets contain plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. Because vegan diets often rely on these healthy staples, they tend to be higher in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and fiber. Healthy vegan diets are abundant with vitamins B1, C, and E, folic acid, magnesium, and iron while also being low in cholesterol and saturated fats.

A plant-based vegan diet can reduce the risk from conditions such as:

Type 2 diabetes
Cardiovascular disease
Ischemic heart disease
Hypertension
Stroke
Obesity
Some cancers including prostate, ovarian and colon cancer

 

How To Become Vegan?

 

Some people become vegan gradually, while others do it all at once. If you can’t become vegan overnight, you might find that you can eliminate one animal product at a time, or go vegan for one meal a day, or one day a week, and then expand until you are completely vegan.

Connecting with other vegans or vegan groups can be helpful for information, support, sharing, recipe sharing or local restaurant recommendations. The American Vegan Society is a nationwide organization, and members receive their quarterly newsletter. Many vegetarian clubs have vegan events, and there are also many informal Yahoo groups and Meetup groups for vegans.

New Moon in Leo: Letting Go Of Pain & Suffering

We can still feel the powerful New Moon that took place on July 23rd 2017. It is a new cycle that helps to establish our potential and to reconnect with something bigger than us. It's only then will we feel complete and stable whatever happens.

The lunar energy makes us realize our emptiness or to fill a void within is just a disconnection with everything. By filling this gap it's best to recognize who you are and who you are not and you can discover that it is only the mind that makes you feel the void.

The moon asks you silently "Would you like peace?"

First step is trust, and when you trust leaving behind control, you must change your attitude to gratitude. Your mission will be revealed once you find out who you are.

Infinite Blessings
