I HAVE NO ENERGY!!! January 19, 2014

We all at some time or another have made this statement. I would say that this is the number one reason most of my clients meet with me, they have no energy, are dragging through their day, and are searching for a reason and a fix.

When I first began my work, the first thing I would do is assess the individual’s diet, as generally the first thing a professional looks at is nutrition. You put out what you take in. However, as I continue in my path to heal, I have come to find that 90% of the time diet is not the only problem. My belief is that all physical starts as emotional, spiritual or mental. Your subconscious mind brings you to awareness of these issues by physical symptoms such as: inability to digest food, headaches, body aches, sore throats, irritable bowel, etc. I believe that one of the main issues of fatigue, especially chronic fatigue is not just about what your eating, but what you are thinking.

Think of your energy like a bank account inside your body, which starts off completely full. What are you spending this energy on? Do you have poor energy management skills?

Pretend you start out with 100 energy points. When you wake up what is the first thing you do? Do you worry about something? (-5 energy points) do you complain that you have to go to work? (-5 energy points) do you dwell about something your did wrong in the past (-10 energy points). So, before you leave your bed your down to 80 points.

You then turn on the news. Everything you watch is absolutely negative, your spending EVEN MORE energy on this. Your lucky you have even 50 energy points left by the time you leave the house. Not only are you loosing energy by partaking in these things, but you are now vibrating these feelings of negativity and worry into the universe. No matter what you are thinking, past or present, you give that vibration off into the air, and the universe comes back with the exact same vibration. Starting your day expending your energy on worry and doubt will bring more of this to you. Watching negative things on TV will bring more negative things to manifest. So, not only are we wasting energy on things that deserve none of our attention, but we are creating more things to take our energy away!

What if instead of waking up and worrying, the first thing you did when you woke up was give thanks for your amazing life, the house you live in, even the toothbrush you use to brush your teeth. What if instead of watching something negative with your morning meal (which disturbs digestion any way) you listened to a positive message instead. Instead of depleting your energy your building it. You now have more energy than you started with when you woke up!

I believe we need to focus more on our energy management skills and improve this aspect of our lives before we even start to change our diets. As you go through your day, think before you react. Is it worth spending energy points on? Think about this carefully.

When on your way to work you get a flat tire. How will you spend your energy points on this situation? Swearing (-4) Yelling (-10) Worrying (-5) Being annoyed and angry the whole time you change the tire (-10). Or do you simply get out of the car CALMLY, assess the situation and think “well, maybe there is a divine purpose for this flat tire”, calmly change it, and head on your way?

We all have the choice on how we handle and react in a situation. How do you want to spend your energy? Worrying, yelling, and getting upset or angry does nothing but burn you out and ATTRACTS MORE OF THAT TO YOU. Every time you spend an energy point, that point goes out into the universe and the universe gives that point back in the exact way it was received. Remember this before you react, and think about how you want to spend your points.

Fish out of Water September 17, 2013

If you went to the beach and retrieved a fish from the water, and laid it upon the shore, the fish would surely die. It would not develop lungs that breath air, or learn to walk on its tail or hunt for its food. It would slowly and surely die.

We were created in nature. We walked the earth with our feet, bathed and drank the waters of the the earth, gathered our foods from the richest soil ever found, and respected Mother Nature and showed her so daily. We respected the animals, and they respected us. We breathed fresh air and saw beautiful greenery all around us. We took care of the earth, and it took care of us. It was our home.

We are now quite far from that. Like fishes out of water. We walk on pavement, breath in smog, our waters are polluted EVERYWHERE, from the streams to our faucet. The earth is now filled with the tallest buildings, where the color green is only seen sparingly between the cracks in the side walk. We have no language with animals, no language with creation. We only think of ourselves, not all as one.

I do not believe in chemical imbalances. I believe in a lack of nature. We are fish out of water. We have been taken from the environment we were meant to live in and slowly shown a new way of life. A life that we have labeled as “civilized”. Well this “civilized” lifestyle is aiding us in slowly dying. We are depressed, we have panic attacks, anxiety, ADD and other made up diagnosis and pills for all of them, to help preserve us in these places we were never meant to live. Lifestyles we were never supposed to have. The human race was not meant to live the way we do, and we are sick and slowly dying because of it.

We need to stop with the selfish mentality, and the thought that materialism leads to happiness. It doesn’t. There is nothing so much further from the truth. The earth will only sustain this behavior for so long. The next time we are feeling bouts of depression, or a panic attack coming on, maybe we should think of the fish out of water. Maybe we are just so far from where we should be, our bodies and minds are turning on us. Maybe it is saying “I need the earth, the green, the clean air. Put me back where I belong”.

I am not meaning to offend anyone by these statements if you struggle with any of these issues, as I too, have at one time. But stop and think how far removed we are from when we first came, and think of the fish out of water.

Man: Advancing On Nature Since 1 BC June 26, 2013

Driving to work yesterday I saw a landscaping service truck driving in front of me. Beneath the logo it said “Enhancing The Beauty of Nature”. This was quite upsetting to me. This statement said a lot. Humans, from the beginning of time, have always thought that they can improve on nature and make it better. We disturb everything in this voyage to make what was already here better, and because of it the earth is suffering and crying out for us to stop.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are a perfect example of this. A scientist came along and decided it would be beneficial (most likely just to his pockets) to create a seed that he can patent, which has a strain of bacteria in it which was made by him. His claim is that he can save the world, and this seed is an enhancement to nature. This type of seed is nothing of the sort. It is destroying crop, and takes away from the natural design of this earth. All GM seeds are sterile… you can not save the seeds and replant them. They are resistant to high doses of dangerous pesticides, and are causing the killing of our bees, our people, and our earth. This goes against everything our earth should be. The only thing GMOs have done is make the pockets fatter of the people who promote and create these life killing crops.

We have also thought we are advancing on nature when we stopped encouraging farming and started promoting factory farming of both plants and animals. Instead of a farmer having a few cattle and some crop, man decided that everyone should be over consumers, and it would be an advancement for us to have giant farms producing one thing at a time.. miles of cows back to back with no walking room, suffering and living a tormented life, and the same plant grown for miles, which has led to degradation of our soil and the need for pesticides.

Because of this “advancement” we have decided to make on nature, humans, animals and the earth are suffering, the latter undeserving. Because of our decision for advancement, animals are suffering greatly for no reason. They are being tortured and enslaved so that we can eat in excess, their homes are being cut down so we can build our shopping malls and houses, and in return we decide they are “over populating” an area, when we are in fact the ones over populating theirs. We decide to domesticate wildlife and make them our pets. Through “selective breeding” people are now bringing foxes, monkeys, and others into their homes because they are “cute”. The earth is being torn to shreds. The land is being eaten up by bulldozers daily, chemicals are being dumped in its waters, and pesticides on its soils.  In return, plants are no longer able to grow strong, which means we are not able to either.

Because of our “enhancing” everything is dying. Including us.

The first step in healing this earth is recognizing the problem. Now that you have, start to take action. Please, begin to do something nice to the planet, and watch it give you rewards in return. If you are walking and see some trash, simply pick it up. If a turtle is trying to cross a busy road, stop and help it to the other side. Plant seeds in the most unexpected places. The goji berry is the most versatile plant– it can grow anywhere! Since you should be eating these everyday anyway, always have some on you! Show some thanks by sticking one in the ground. It will most likely grow. And if it doesn’t, you still attempted, and that will be recognized. We can’t keep robbing nature, we must do something to give back. As in any relationship, its give and take. It can’t be always take. Start your giving now, before the earth is completely robbed, and its too late. It will happen much quicker than you think.

SUPER DEAL ON PURE DHA/EPA! July 17, 2012

Filed under: Journal Entries — eyeofraw @ 4:28 PM

My absolute favorite DHA/EPA supplement is on super sale for the next 24hrs! Normally 29.99 for 1, Omega Zen is currently on sale through The Raw Food World— $37.77 for three or $13.99 for one.

This is the most pure and potent vegan DHA supplement on the market! I have been using it for over a year and i absolutely love it! Here is an article i wrote on the particular product last year: http://eyeofrawfoods.com/2011/09/24/the-importance-of-dha/

Getting your DHA omega 3′s from marine phytoplankton is the most pure way to get it. Fish are contaminated, and the only reason they have DHA is because they costume Krill. Krill are so pure and high in omega 3 because they live in marine phytoplankton! It is always the best to eat the lowest on the food chain possible, because the nutrients are the most bioavailable. Your body will absorb every bit of the omegas because of this! You can take 1,000mg of DHA from fish oil, but by the time your body processes it, it will be much less. You know that fishy burp you get when you take fish oil? That happens because your body is not able to convert it into a usable substance because of the way the formula was processed. It has most likely completely oxidized and can no longer be used by the body.

So try this amazing product, i know for a fact you will feel a difference! The sale only lasts for the next 24 hours so act now!

Fidgeting Around With Food July 10, 2012

Filed under: Healthful Information,Journal Entries — eyeofraw @ 1:21 PM

 

 

So i recently adopted 2 rats. One, who’s name is Edgar, he is an albino with one eye, and Fidget, a smaller guy with a few nubby toes. I have them on a very nice diet that consist of their choice of nutrient dense pellets or kale, watermelon, swiss chard, mango, goji, and a few other fruits. I also put Spirulina/chlorella in their water. They are very active happy rats.

A few days ago i began to incorporate rice into their feeding. I noticed that when i fed them the rice, they were at first unsure of it, but once they began to eat it they would run after it and devour it any time i put it in their cage! I began to think about rice. It is a starchy sugar. I know that our brains are wired to like sugar/starch, fat, and salt as a survival mechanism. (Today we have so much of these substances available it has become an addiction.)

I noticed that every time i fed them the rice, they would dig that out of the bottom of the food dish first, then go to the fruit second (more sugar) and then eat the greens last. This was very interesting to me as after they had consumed the sugar they wanted more sugar.

Last night my finance was eating some french fries (yuck) and i broke one up and put it into their food dish. I have never seen them eat something so fast. The little guy, fidget, actually ran up to edgar and stole a piece right from his mouth and ran and hid in his hammock and ate it. Shortly after i took them from their cage and set them on the coffee table to run around and play. They both snuggled up to each other and slept instead. This in incredibly weird, as they love to run around and explore.

This morning they did not wake up until 11am. They are normally up and ready by 6 or 7. I even changed their food, which they always come out for, but nothing. They didn’t even start moving from their potato coma until 11!  It is definitely back to raw fruits and veggies for these guys!

It is amazing to me how this clearly showed what happens to the body when we fill ourselves with starch, carbohydrates, and sugar. We crave more, go crazy on it, and then sleep it off the next day. We should be just as active and curious as these rats normally are, running around all day finding things to do and conquer, but instead most of us load up on comfort foods and put ourselves into this fog, and then sleep it off. Its no way to live!

Try fidgeting around with your own diet! Instead of that bagel you eat every morning, replace it with some fresh fruit like half a watermelon or 3 pears or apples. Maybe try a green smoothie! For lunch, instead of bread use a collard leaf for a wrap or a portobello mushroom for sandwich bread! Try snacking on some cucumbers with sea salt sprinkled on them instead of the bag of chips located in the machine at “F8″ for 75cents. Any little adjustment you make will make a difference in the way you feel on a daily basis. Go with the flow! Move in one thing, get rid of another! Before you know it you will be eating healthy and feeling great!

 

Karmic Confessions July 3, 2012

I would like to share this story  with all of my readers, and all who wish to read. I believe that i can not truly move on from this experience unless I write it out and share it, so that someone may benefit from it. This is the only way to turn this experience, full of negative karmic energy, into a positive one.

A short time ago, at the height of my awakening, i met an individual who’s negative karmic energy was pouring off them. I am incredibly kind hearted, and wanted to help this person, so began to spend some time with them. This person drank, smoked, had a very negative outlook on life, and ate the most negative karma foods you could think of. I felt that since my being is so positive and light, that it may help to counteract the heavy weight this person carried. I was terribly wrong.

The negative energy this person gave off began to chip away at my flamboyant spirit and i myself began to grow somewhat dull. Looking back at this time, i realized that during that time i was attracted to eating more negative karma foods such as nuts and seeds. Negative situations began to pop up in my life and i felt myself to begin to loose the awakening i had came to. This went on for some time, and old habits started to fall back into my life. There were things i was doing that i would never have dreamed of just months prior, such as drinking wine and eating corn chips!  I not only was attracting negativity into my life, but putting negative things into my body! This brought my esoteric self way down from where it was, in an incredibly short period of time. I felt my “high” begin to dwindle, and my light growing dull.

I knew that i needed to let go of this negative being, and needed to set myself free of this entity. And so I did. I will admit, even though over a year later, I am not 100% myself physically or spiritually. It is not until These last few months that i have truly been able to build myself back to where i was.

I, however, do not feel 100%. I am not the me i was. My spirit still feels slightly heavy, and i can feel the “pockets” of negative energy stored within my spirit.

The first step in letting go of this energy is sharing it with you all, and hoping that someone may gain information from it.

The second step I am taking is a 2 week long super cleanse, which i will be blogging about with videos and writings. My fiancé will be accompanying me through this journey, as he too will be cleansing negative food karma as well as old experiences from his spiritual self.

Please know, that some negative energies you can not tackle no matter how positive you are. Never let anyone dim your light, or listen to others when you know truly what is right. Always let the spirit guide you. Look and listen for signs of what you should and should not be doing. Do not ignore them simply because you do not want to accept what they are telling you. Love yourself and others, and keep yourself clean of those things that will hinder your being from developing into the full potential you are truly capable of.

 

Reaching Your Goals and Overcoming Negativity June 26, 2012

We often hear of people telling us how we attract what we put out, and if “we put it out there, we shall receive it”, but how many of us actually listen to this and put it into action? Maybe we do for a few days, but then we let negativity take control and regress.

In order to be a strong individual, who accomplishes what they are set out to do, you can not simply just wish something to appear, or hope for the best. We do not live in a fairy tale land, wishes do not just happen. It is up to you to go out there and make it happen.

When you are in a negative mood, you attract thoughts of a similar nature, through the law of infinity. That is why it is so important to form thoughts of a success nature, to attract similar ones. It is a FACT that there are thought currents, and those currents attract thoughts of a similar nature. If you think negative, your life shall be negative. If you are determined to succeed, you will, simply because your thoughts are those of succeeding and those only.

I often hear people saying how “he has a lot of will power” when an individual accomplishes something that seemed to be extra difficult. There is no monopoly of will power. One person does not have more than the other. That person simply had the determination and used his will power. We all have the same amount, but it is up to the individual as to how much they choose to use it.

The mind is incredibly powerful. People tend to underestimate its capabilities. I have seen people think themselves into sickness, constantly either thinking they are sick or will get sick, and end up sick. I have seen people who have been told they have a disease, and within a week give themselves up to it, simply because they knew about it. Our minds have the power to produce physical manifestations, and it is only your decision what manifestations take place in your life.

The world is a negative place. There are negative things happening every day, and it is easy to get trapped into that. It is a vicious cycle. You must use your will power to keep only positive thoughts and determination. Your mind set should always be, “I will find the way or make one”. My whole life i have lived by this, and it has yet to fail me. When you decide you want to do something, set your mind to it and begin to accomplish it. There WILL be road blocks along the way. But when you are determined to get around them, you can continue with what you set out to do. If you were driving to a friends house and the road was blocked off, would you simply just turn around and go home? No, you would find an alternate route to reach the destination. That is how life works. You must use your own determination to overcome.

I know many of you start off thinking this way, for there are very few of us that start off negative, but after a period of time we allow our negative thoughts to consume us, and they prohibit us from accomplishing what we have set out to do. This shows weakness in the mind. A thought should not have control over you, but you should have control over your thoughts. It is you who forms them, and you who lets them get out of control. The next time a negative thought enters your mind, simply realize that you have control over that thought and can remove it from your mind, and replace it with a good one.

Here are some exercises that i do when i have a goal to reach. These have yet to fail me, and i know they will work for you too.

1. Make a List

  • buy a notebook that is your goal book. Write your main goal on the first page. Underneath it write smaller goals you must reach first in order to make the main goal come true. For example, it could be something like buying a new car. So underneath “Buy Corvette” you would write each step you would need to take to achieve it. things such as “Get Job that pays at least $25/hr, pay off credit card debt, sell current car” may all be things listed underneath it. It is a lot easier to look at a list of things you must do to reach your goal, so you can slowly check them off and see progression. It is no longer jumbled in your brain, but organized out onto paper. If you have many goals, write them each on a separate sheet of paper.
  • Every day do one thing that will get you closer to accomplishing one of your goals. At the end of the night write the date and what you did to get one step closer. You will see your progression out on paper and you will be able to see you are indeed moving closer to your goal, even when it may seem you are staying stagnant.

2. Daily “To-Do” List

  • Everyday make a list of things you want to accomplish that day. Do not go to bed that night until you have completed everything on that list. This may be a lot more challenging than you think. We all know our days never really go as planned, and things may come up, but those who are determined to complete that list will find a way to do so. The more frequently you do this the more your will to do will become stronger, and you will be a stronger person because of it.

3. Increase your concentration

  • Concentrate on the task you are executing, and only that task. If you are working, think only of work and nothing else. You will see that your day will be much more efficient and you will get a lot more accomplished this way. Many people say how they struggle with sleep. Well, when you are thinking about work when you are trying to sleep, you obviously will not sleep. When you are sleeping think about sleeping. Concentrate only on that. There is no excuse of “ADD” here. This label is simply used as an excuse for someone that does not have control over their concentration because they have not practiced it. How many of us pull up  the web browser, but when waiting for the site to load, pull up a new tab while waiting for the other to load? This is a lack of concentration, and not being able to only concentrate on what we were set out to do. For those of us that do this, try to not. You will see how much control you will gain over your thoughts, and how much more you will accomplish when you are giving something 100% of your attention instead of 80%.

4. DO NOT SEE HOW LITTLE YOU CAN DO, BUT HOW MUCH YOU CAN DO. 

  • Many of us tend to do as little as possible, or just enough to keep us comfortable. Do not be this way. Set out to do as much as you can, and you will get much further.

 

There are a few more that i could list, but start with these. Simplify your thoughts to what you are doing, and know you have control over them. What you put out WILL manifest, but not if you just sit there. You must take action and responsibility. Those who do will move forward, and those who do not will fall behind.
