All is well. You did not come here to fix a broken world. The world is not broken. You came here to live a wonderful life. And if you relax a little and let it all in, you will begin to see the Universe present you with all that you have asked for.

The Desire for Children

Both my children were conceived deliberately with a true desire for their lives but I had postnatal depression after my first born. I felt really out of my body, really disconnected and really down; I felt pessimistic. Part of the cause, I believe, was that I had immersed myself so deeply in motherhood that I had stopped doing anything for myself.

Looking back, the prenatal and post-baby food indulgences didn't help me either and I didn't eat organic or have enough omega 3's in my system.  My first born was born purple & blue with dry skin. The second time around, even though I was under a lot of emotional stress in the home, I gave birth to a little chubby 'buddha' with porcelain skin and perfect health.  I learned to make the switch to organic as I was searching for ways to help my first born's skin problems and because of him I have transitioned from a hobby-nutritionist to an organic raw foodist.

I guess my first born was the original inspiration that led me to where I am now!  What a gift our children are!

Franz Kafka

"You need not leave your room. remain sitting at your table & listen.

You need not even listen. Simply wait.

You need not even wait.

Just learn to become quiet & still in solitary.

The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.

It has no choice.

It will roll in ecstacy at your feet."

Franz Kafka

Giving and Gratitude

Giving causes having.
Gratitude declares certainty.
To have all, give all to all.

Everything is an idea.
Look around you – it all started as an idea.
Ideas grow as they are shared, not as they are withheld.

And gratitude, among other things, makes you faithful in outcome.

Our General Diet

I started giving my kids up to a 90% raw diet and I see such a big difference in their energy levels and appearance.   They are vibrant and bubbly - happy go lucky everyday. Energizer bunnies are no match to their robust staminas.  I do add more cooked foods for lunch for the little one so that he naps in the afternoons or else I go bonkers by the end of the day.

Spinach, mango or banana & berry smoothie with a fresh piece of aloe vera; whole grain toast with organic butter or oatmeal with cinnamon and raw honey. Organic pastas are cooked but the sauce isn't & 'hamburgers' made out of ground walnuts or soaked sunflower seeds, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, celtic sea salt & organic herbs. 

I also give them free range egg yolks sunny side up and once in a while organic milk or yogurt. I don't worry about their calcium intake since they get a liberal amount through fresh greens and sesame seeds that I sprinkle in a lot of their meals.  This way of eating totally takes away their sweet tooth and I give them ''junk food'' only on weekends, letting them have as much as they want but they stop after a few pieces so that makes me very happy.  I can't believe I am doing all this because I always ate at restaurants before I settled down and had kids. 

And I finally let go of the expensive Shiseido and Chanel products and use organic virgin coconut oil to moisturize and I am just as pleased with the results.  If only I had known this before, I could have saved some serious money that was spent on vanity purposes the last 20 years!  And we get enough vitamin D because we are out in the sun without sunscreen in the mornings or afternoons for at least an hour or more and we haven't been sick for about a year or longer.
