Where Are You Going? A Guide to What’s Next

There is no other step on the journey that happens as instantaneously as Surrender; but, it may take a very long time until we are ready to fully do so. When we do, our prior step of soul searching moves towards its end. Nearly simultaneously, the next step after Surrender – Healing – begins.

As we move deeper into the soul level of the journey, it becomes increasingly difficult to separate out the steps, for they overlap in a very non-linear way. Once we surrender, the opportunity is there for us to discover a higher power that is always available to assist us, we exercise our free will and allow it into our lives.

Surrender is about partnering with the Divine. It is about realizing that we are not alone and that we don't have to solve every dilemma by ourselves.

Indeed, as Einstein famously said, we can't solve problems at the same level of consciousness that created them. Surrender allows us to access a higher consciousness in order to transcend the problem and move to a new level entirely. Some call this grace. We call it empowerment.

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.

Intuitive Living

Intuition is a gift that each of us have, and like all gifts – all potentials, abilities, and talents – some go to waste and others rise to great heights and sweet achievements.

The choice is yours, and that is good news because the power lies within you.

Intuition is a guidance system and whether you believe it or not does not change the fact that it exists. Being guided by your intuitions doesn't mean abandon reason it means to allow your perception to balance your consciousness.

Full Moon in Capricorn

This Sunday July 9th there is a Full Moon in Capricorn (17 deg), and you’re likely already feeling it!

 

capricorn1

 

Full and New Moons are influencing us whether we realize it or not, The tide goes in and out with the moon’s new and full moon phases, and likewise our emotions are triggered by planetary movements. Knowing about what the planets are doing helps make sense of behavior and feelings.

 

What message does this Full Moon bring to us? There’s quite the feeling of electricity in the air, which can leave you feeling buzzed. This Full Moon is a degree away from Pluto in Capricorn. The Sun and Mars are opposing them in Cancer. Mars isn’t extremely close, but in this case we’re definitely feeling Mars energy, Pluto energy, and Saturn energy.

 

Full Moons amplify emotions and bring things to a head. Astrological events don’t create issues that aren’t already within you or around you somewhere. They bring things to the surface or to your attention so that they can be addressed, ideally in a healthy, positive way (that’s where knowing these triggers are happening becomes useful!). It presents a push to explore opportunities or get out of your comfort zone and express your needs.

 

The Full Moon may bring up questions like… Is there anything I’m not expressing? Are my needs or desires being fulfilled? Is there something in my life needing healing, closure, transformation or release?

 

This Full Moon is in practical, ambitious Capricorn, squaring Jupiter in Libra. Jupiter is all about expansion and abundance, and a square is a challenge and that can make things feel a bit tense. There may be some dreams you are really wanting to move into right now, The Full Moon brings your emotions to a climactic moment, so you could feel like you are about to explode, Don’t give up! This is a time to step away, take some deep breaths, do some yoga, go to a workout class, get out in nature, have a swim in the ocean, bake some cookies, anything to clear your head which is  being filled by a climax with intensity.

 

 

The Full Moon is pretty much right on Pluto. Pluto is all about deep, deep transformation. He’s about diving in to our shadow side and seeing what we’d usually rather avoid or confronting what we have a hard time owning about ourselves (both the good qualities and the not so good). Pluto asks us to look at how Power and Control are manifesting in our lives. Where is it appropriate to let go, surrender and trust your Soul to direct the show in ways you may not currently understand? Pluto helps us get clear on these lines, although we usually go through quite a bit of push/pull/resistance before we get to the clear part! Keep up and keep going!

 

Pluto will ruthlessly destruct anything we have outgrown, and whatever no longer serves us. Pluto gets you onto your highest evolutionary path, and he tends not to do it in a gentle way.  With this Full Moon right on Pluto, more people than usual will feel his energy and so be aware of the fact that this weekend can trigger a short yet intense dark night of the soul for some. Nurture yourself, take care of yourself and if you can, extend some nurturing to anyone in your circle who is going through a hard time. It is going to be a big Full Moon weekend for sure!

 

Transformative Blessings

Wednesday Wisdom

We all are looking at one another through the windows of our own perspectives. Simply trying to figure out who we are in the mirrors of life and by learning what resonates and what does not. 

All of us have the power to live in a very expansive and beautiful reality, or choose to live in a very limited, contracted, one way street narrow reality. 

When we become the observers of life, rather than its judges and when we witness what is going on around you with wonder, you own your own perspective, without having to make anyone else’s wrong.
In this nature, we can observe human beings without any judgment. We can love the light within all people, while not liking the personalities and behaviors of some. This world is an amazing melting pot of diversity in the great play of creation. It was meant to be that way. The light that lives within  takes many takes many different forms upon this planet. Love that light. Love that it is expressed in so many different ways. Then allow yourself, without judgment to simply move towards those with whom you resonate with and move away from those you don’t. In this fashion, you free your soul to just be and to find its natural fit in the greater stage of life.
We are spiritually free when every soul, including yourself, has the right to just be. Our guidance system asks us to release any need to cling to what we have always known. The very process of letting go helps us to feel more aligned with our Soul’s Highest Reality in every moment. This alignment creates a more fulfilling and purposeful connection with Divinity working in us so we can trust our intuition more freely.

NASA’s Game Changing R5 Robot

As we move forward and as humanity moves outward into space, the preparation is huge for it is risky and will show extremely hazardous environments such as those missions to Mars and asteroids that will be encountered. Having fully-operational robotic help ready to assist in dangerous tasks could be crucial during long-duration missions beyond Earth. NASA is seriously considering this matter and it could usher in an age of new humanoid robots!

NASA is counting on robots to setup and care for deep space exploration facilities and equipment pre-deployed ahead of astronauts. Robots are also excellent precursors for conducting science missions ahead of human exploration.

Humanoid machines could easily undertake activities dangerous for future astronauts. That is why the agency is developing a six-foot-tall humanoid robot called R5 which was previously known as “Valkyrie”. It was initially designed for use during disaster-relief missions  but now creating more dexterous autonomous robots, designed to operate in extreme space environments and expeditions to Mars and beyond.

Extreme space environments are dangerous for humans. And, robots are ideal for dangerous tasks. NASA already has rovers on Mars. This is an effort to advance autonomy of humanoid robots. We will have a better understanding of when and how humanoid robots will help with future deep space exploration.
