National Cherry Cobbler Day

National Cherry Cobbler Day is dedicated every May 17th to the delicious tart dessert that many enjoy with ice cream.

In the United States, cobbler refers to a variety of dishes that consist of a fruit filling (cherry being a popular choice ) covered with a batter or pie crust that is then baked. Some cobblers have both a top and bottom crust.

Cobblers originated in the early British American colonies. It was because of the lack of suitable ingredients and proper cooking equipment that the English settlers were unable to make their traditional suet puddings, so to improvise, they covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked biscuits or dumplings.

A cherry cobbler differs from a crisp as a cobbler lacks oatmeal. Sometimes the cobbler is topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Could You Really “Do What You Love” These Days?

I have always loved music. I received music awards in high school. So it’s not a surprise that I started college as a music major. It was a mercifully short experiment. As I like to say, I majored in music until I discovered that there was an uncertainty generating money in the future for a job by majoring in the field of music. Simply  “doing what I loved” would have been a poor career advice for me. And yet, it is advice I have always followed. Is doing what you love a ridiculous concept in this economy? 

It seems to me now to “do what you love” is one of the worst pieces of career advice ever. Today’s economy, coupled with endless media coverage about the best-paying jobs  and the need to pursue a “practical” education,  seems to give lie to this classic career advice.

So where did this controversial advice begin? Like its companion philosophy, Follow Your Bliss...the philosophy of “do what you love” has been around for centuries, dating back to early spiritual texts. And also just putting down the book Do What You Love and the Money Will Follow has some responsibility for promoting the much heralded phrase.

Unfortunately most job seekers haven’t read her book, and the phrase has been turned into a bumper sticker, devoid of meaning and potentially dangerous in its simplicity. It reminds me of another common piece of advice, “Leap and the net will appear.” Yes, sometimes it does. And sometimes you just crash.

In the introduction to this book I was reading lately it isn’t suggesting in any way that doing what one loves means doing what one feels like doing. She describes people who are still waiting for the money to follow: an actress who has yet to catch her break; students enrolled in “tedious, often boring” graduate studies they hope will propel them to what they love; a painter who, knowing it will take years to master her craft, works at a day job and paints on weekends.

I am reminded of a quote from one of my favorite movies, The Peaceful Warrior  “A warrior does not give up what she loves. She finds the love in what she does. There are compromises and creative solutions along the path to doing what we love to do. To find the love in what we do. Money doesn’t just “follow” we must do the work first, invest in ourselves, and gradually see the results of our efforts. Finding the love in what we do in all aspects of our lives might be the best way to move forward in today’s career path. It’s all about mindfulness.

Take a few minutes and ask yourself if you have found your right livelihood. Are you pursuing what you love? or have you found the love in what you do? Because it might be that doing a less-than-ideal job that puts food on your family’s table is one aspect of the love you can find in it. And then you can begin to seek openings for what else you can love. Even in this economy there are ways to incorporate what you love into what you do. Because the truth is you probably love many things. I know I do. Once music was off the table, I shaped my career around other loves. Psychology. Writing. Literature. Art. Teaching. Counseling. Films. and YOGA.

It seems that our right livelihood will evolve over the years, that is, in a mindful way. Do what you love can be the best or the worst career advice depending on your self-awareness and mindfulness..

love, k

Tuesday Thoughts

No one knows more than you do what is truly in your highest good, when you are in that infinite connection to the Source of all life. Ask for this connection to be strong and clear.

It is very helpful to give thanks in advance for clear direction from the Universe. This creates a frequency of energy within and around you that allows the Angels to bring you assistance. An attitude of gratitude goes a long way to bring in and attract that which you most want in your life.

Be clear about the qualities you want, such as happiness, wisdom, love, prosperity, and peace. All of these qualities represent the energy of the universe that is always available to you. Be willing to receive on a level you have never believed possible. Allow the universal energy of the Archangels to work in your life. When you come from this higher level of intention, you will begin to sense within you the vibration of your highest truth.

Heart Thoughts

Your heart is the center of your power. I have learned that you can create easily and effortlessly when you let your thoughts come from the loving space of your heart. Here are a few Heart Thought Suggestions.

I Am Free to Be Me

When we experience sadness, or get upset, give yourself a physical release. There are several methods you can use to release these feelings in positive ways. You can scream in the car with the windows closed. You can kick pillows, make noise and say all the things you want to say. You can scream into a pillow, run around a track, or play a game like tennis to release the energy and those physical tensions you store in your body!

I Create Wonderful New Beliefs about Myself

These are some beliefs that can really help you in your life if you think or say them every day:

I am always safe.

Everything I need to know is revealed to me.

Everything I need comes to me in the perfect time sequence.

Life is a joy and filled with love.

I am willing to change and to grow.

 

It’s Only a Thought and a Thought Can Be Changed

How many times have you refused to think a positive thought about yourself? Well, you can refuse to think negative thoughts about yourself, too. People say, “I can’t stop thinking a thought.” Yes, you can!

You have to make up your mind that it’s what you’re going to do. You don’t have to fight your thoughts when you want to change things. When that negative inner voice comes up, you can affirm, “Thank you for sharing, and I’m choosing to do something else. I don’t want to buy into that anymore, I want to create another way of thinking.”

Acknowledge your thoughts, don’t fight them and go beyond them.

Louise Hay’s Heart Thoughts is a charming and valuable treasure trove of small pieces of inner wisdom that can guide you through any problem you might face. Now presented in a unique gift format with beautiful illustrations to warm your heart all over again.

Gems of inner wisdom for a specific area of life Heart Thoughts  is an easy-to-use, pick-up-and-choose guide to assist you in your day-to-day experiences.

MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE IN SAGITTARIUS

Mercury is Retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius from today December 3 to 22, 2017.

There is absolutely a positive side to Mercury Retrograde. This period is best used for re-organizing and reflecting. We look at the world a little differently–through different filters–and can come up with some very important inner revelations. It may be difficult to communicate them under this influence, but not everything needs to be explained.

Mercury retrograde periods can be times of heightened inner awareness, when meditation, yoga, deep breathing, benefiting from keeping a journal, reworking old plans, and reviewing past work are favored. Mercury retrograde is powerful for studies, especially for returning to old studies or for re-learning or refreshing knowledge in a subject already taken.

Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can actually re-connect us to other means of communication, such as when there is an unexpected power outage and we’re forced off the computer and television, finding different and often satisfying ways to entertain ourselves.

Not everyone feels the stronger effects of Mercury retrograde. Some people born with Mercury retrograde in their natal chart, feel that they don’t experience the classic Mercury Retrograde confusion effects as intensely as others, while others do.
Pay close attention to what you communicate in general, specifically around the days of Mercury’s stations (December 3rd and 22nd), as well as around retrograde Mercury’s conjunction to the Sun on December 12th (midway between the start and end of the retro period). When a planet stations, its energies are very strong in our lives. When Mercury stations, communications have more impact, so that negative ones could have long-term implications at this time. However, when you are very clear within yourself and about what you are communicating, this will be a positive time.

Cooking for your Spirit- ThanksGIVING

In honor of the essence of Thanksgiving, we came up with a few new creative ways to express gratitude to get into the Thanksgiving spirit. Gratitude has been linked to everything from improving happiness, body image, sleep, life, you name it. Instead of consuming spirits we Celebrate this year in the True Spirit of Thanksgiving! It is a gentle reminder to love those at our tables and beyond.

For some a little planning can go a long way especially when you have a history of disordered eating. In the midst of this food-focused holiday event could be far from a relaxing night with friends and family. It is hard to separate events being based in food from the part that is about connecting with people. For those who are trying to prevent triggers to an internal battle with bulumia, binge eating, and anorexia, the holidays are certainly among those experiences to be vulnerable and to know that you are not alone.

Eating disorders often bring about an internal fracturing of mind, body and spirit. It may feel like you have been trapped in your mind by eating disorder thoughts that disconnect you from your body and spirit. Recovery involves reintegrating the mind, body, and spirit, creating an internal sense of wholeness. To embrace this holiday season with the intention of healing  Cooking for your Spirit    is a healthy guide that lends courage and strength when struggling, and gives a way to express gratitude when all is well.

Thanksgiving Blessings,

love, #krishna
