Fats That are too Toxic to feed to Any Living Creature.

This chart is to help you understand where you can find artificial Trans-fats or also known as Hydrogenated fats.  These fats were introduced in 1911 as the "all-vegetable" oil shortening.  Trans fats were suppose to be a lot healthier then "lard" which was commonly used.  Lard is an animal fat that is hard at room temperature.  The "all-vegetable oil" was popular due to the texture it gave baked goods and the "good for you" belief.  Artificial Trans-fats are formed by adding hydrogen to the liquid fats under extreme heat and pressure.  Thus, a semi-hard form of the fat was made.  To make a product with more flavor and possibly, less money, the food industry introduced tropical oil trans fats.  In the 1980's, anti-tropical oils and anti-saturated fat campaigns were launched.  Heart disease and hardening of the arteries were blamed on the "tropical oils' industry.  In this scientific study, tropical oils were tested, but only the hy…

The Desire to See the World Healed

December 28, 2019

Years ago, I read a quote written by Lao Tzu that inspired me to look closer at myself.   It goes like this:
"If you want to awaken all of humanity then  awaken all of yourself.  If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself.  Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation." by Lao Tzu.

This quote speaks volumes to me.
 I've been around many sensitive people who all would like to "heal the world".  In fact some feel it's their obligation to do this.  But when you start to understand that each one of us cannot change other people in our lives, we start to see it's not the world we need to change, it's ourselves!

The dark, Lao talks about is the negativity we part take in.  Check out your thoughts!  Are you at times resentful and jealous towards a relative?  A friend?  A stranger?  Are you feeling like, it's not fair that person has…

Ancient Champagne Milk

Kefir is fermented milk that was first cultured by the people of the Caucasus mountains in the former Soviet Union thousands of years ago.  Kefir grains are used to create these cultures. 
 "The Definition of kefir grain by Merriam-Webster. : a small mass resembling a tiny cauliflower, occurring in kefir, containing casein and other milk solids together with the yeasts and lactobacilli that cause the characteristic kefir fermentation, and serving as a starter to induce this fermentation when introduced into fresh milk."
Years ago, I purchased some Kefir grains from an on-line source. (the link will be at the bottom of the article.)  I followed their instructions and within 24 hours I had a nutritious, sparkling milk drink.  I have found Kefir to be very nutritious and tastes great blended with fruits.  Kefir is milk  that has been cultured, similar to yogurt.  But from my own experience, I have found Kefir to be more nutritious.   Why?  Kefir has numerous strains of high qualit…

Spiritual Responsibility

I just read a very good article on spiritual responsibility.  How people who are highly spiritual are afraid of taking their spiritual responsibility in life with their soul's purpose. (being big)   People tend to have excuses to why they should not follow what their soul's purpose is on earth.  We manifest health issues, we manifest financial problems, we manifest rivals to either stop us or slow us down in our true purpose.  Why are we here?, we ask ourselves.  What is my soul's purpose?  Am I fearful of taking on my power in life?  Am I fearful to feel the inner power, my "I Am" and so I sabotage my efforts?  We all have a beautiful, powerful, light spirit in us.  We are here to bring our own inner light (power) to earth and manifest God's love.  We are here to plant our light (love) on earth and hold it there.  In other words, we are here to  recognize our own Divine selves.  We are also here to assist others in their struggle to recognize their own Divin…

Dancing for Health

What in the world are you talking about, you ask me?
Dancing is an art form.
 It also is away to become active, healthy, and a way to release emotions.

  Dancing can be a form of meditation, where you just listen to the music and flow with it.  When we dance to music we love, we enter in to a state of joy.  We move our bodies in any way that feels good.  Whether we learn a certain dance and flow with it or we make up or own steps as we go along, dance helps you to release any pent-up emotions by letting you feel your body.

Dance brings you down into your body, so you can experience every physical sensation.  Dance will ground you.  Have you ever felt like you were in another world, mentally feeling separate from your body?  You need to ground yourself.

I will put on my 50-60's rock music and I will dance with whatever step I think of and desire to perform.  I even have placed in my karate kicks in between my Latin dance moves.  I use dance as a healthy exercise, off and on during…
