We all know of the virtues of lemons – we use it in hot water and sip it to get over a cold, as a refreshing drink on a beautiful summer day; I know it is a great immune system booster and I add it to my daily skin care regiment as mentioned in  previous blogs called Facial Pampering and Skin Care.  I also use lemons to clean my house and as a room freshener.  Lemons are great but this news from an acquaintance in Europe  really caught my attention and I find it important to pass it on to all who want to take on true responsiblity for their own health and avoid industrial and commercial junk we have bombarded with for so long .

Before I go on with the unexpected powerful health benefits of lemons, I would like to start by giving you some tips used in  many european restaurants.  Once I heard about this, I immediately pulled my lemons from the crisper drawer and placed them in the freezer…..

They put their (of course washed) lemons into the freezer before using them.  Once frozen solid, they grate the entire lemon, peel and all, leaving them with no mess and juice splatter to clean up  and nothing to discard – no waste!  You can conveniently sprinkle the frozen lemon over salads, soups, ice cream, juices, fish, reis, sushi – gosh – the list is endless!  Every dish you create will gain a delightful taste effortlessly.  Goes without saying, I use lemons in my daily juice, depending on the recipe I am using for the day.

By doing this you will not only use the entire fruit nor give meals and drinks that nice twist, but the greatest advantage by doing this is that you will increase your Vitamin C intake 5-10 times since the highest concentration of the Vitamin is in the peel – which we usually throw away.  By using this process you will not only obviously absorb more of the Vitamin but you also receive an added benefit -tata! – the peel also breaks down toxic elements in your body.

Now to the news which surprised me two-folds.

Lemons are 10.000 stronger than Chemotherapy.  This statement comes from one of the largest pharmaceutical producers of the world, after conducting more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970.  They state, a lemon extract therapy destroyed cancerous cells in 12 types of cancer, including Breast, Prostate and Lung cancer.  I am stunned that these results were made public, the pharmaceutical industry isn’t known for being forthcoming with such inexpensive ways of keeping cancer at bay, it doesn’t feed their ultra expensive agendas.  Does anyone remember what happened when it was documented that Bitter Almonds are the ultimate butt-kickers in the cancer field?  Bitter Almonds have now have to be pasteurized before being sold and it is illegal to plant a Bitter Almond tree in your back yard –  all  for our own benefit of course…..so yes, this information  did stun me.  The article states, that the lemon is proven 10.000 more effective than a medicine by the name of Adriamycin which is used world-wide to slow the growth of cancer cells.  It also says, that the lemon extract therapy does not attack any of the healthy cells, only the cancerous ones.  Lemons also fights bacterial infections, various fungus and parasites.  It also has other qualities, it regulates high blood pressure, is an anti-depressant and eases stress.

The Lemon – a magical key to living longer and healthier, would you have known???

Living off juice

Many of us have taken on one  New Year Resolution, maybe two, which the goal in mind to improve ourselves.  Stop smoking, eating healthier, more exercise.  Last year mine was to eat better, although I never really had an unhealthy diet to begin with.  This year I want to expand on that, after all, there is always room for improvement, right?

Last year I replaced one solid  meal with a liquid one. I dug out my juicer and reread an old book I had brought with me from Germany many years ago which listed the benefit of every fruit and vegetable and ailments it could cure once juiced.  This has nothing to do with juice fasting for weight loss nor for detoxing, this had to do with a lifestyle change, although the results do include eliminating toxins and slimming down.

Why juice all my produce?  I could steam or make stir-frys, that’s healthy, right?  Well, most of the enzymes, vitamins and nutrients break down when heated and are destroyed entirely by 54 celsius.  The result is, that these foods once consumed, settle and cause blockages in the body which again, result in arthritis, hemorrhoids, gallbladder and kidney problems just  to list a few.  Also, foods containing calcium must be organic, not added, refined or enhanced.  Once an organic food containing calcium has been heated, enhanced or whatever, it will automatically change into inorganic molecules and these do not deliver any sort of assistance our body needs to regenerate.

From my experience over the last year I have noticed a significant decrease in my headaches,  I have suffered from those several times per months for as long I can remember, even though I was drinking plenty of water.    Headaches are not only caused by not having enough water in your system but includes a deficit in nutrients as  found in carrots and in spinach.  Actually, a headache is only one of 200 symptoms when our bodies has been overloaded with toxins.  Any headache should be an alarm to you to cleanse your body thoroughly and to balance the blood.

My basic go-to juice is a combination of carrots/red beets/apples or carrots/apples/cucumber, they cover the most of what my body needs; however,  for this new year I will expand into other combo additions such as Brussel sprout, sellerie or dandelion.

The red beet, as an example, is  valuable for producing red blood cells, which raises our all around well-being.  A mix of 1/2 quart of  carrot/red beet per day  is especially recommended for women.  When juicing the red beet, you can use all of it,personally,  I don’t bother to peel it – I juice the stalk and leaves as well.  Just remember to wash all of your produce.  When starting with red beets, I recommend smaller amounts to begin with, since it has a high cleansing effect on the liver and may cause dizziness.  Mixed with carrots the juice supplies phosphor, sulfur along with kalium and other alkyne elements. Together with its high content of Vitamin A it is the ideal mix for creating great blood cells.

Carrots balances all body functions and is one of the best sources of Vitamin A, plenty of vitamin B, C, D, G and K.  As a juice the body can absorb vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and nutrients much faster and use were needed.  Carrot juice is good for digestive purposes, strengthens bones and teeth, not to mention eye health.  It also is a natural opponent for ulcers and it strengthens our resistance towards  infections.  It protects the nervous system and is by far one of the best sort of food your body can receive.

The list could go on and on.  Nature has everything we need to combat illnesses and each fruit or vegetable has its own unique gift.  Sellerie juice is wonderful for all who have consumed a lot of sugars, starches and carbs – all of our worst foods in today’s society.  It never was nature’s’ intention to convert these “foods” into nourishment for our cells and tissues.  The results of that can be easily seen today.  Sellerie is rich in healthy (organic) nitrates, which our body needs to keep cells hydrated.  It also has a key function to prevent the blood and lymphoid liquids becoming too thick. Not to forget, that it plays an important role eliminating all carbon dioxide from our body.  A deficiency of organic nitrate results in bronchial and lung problems, which is enhanced by those who smoke.  It will also result in premature aging.  Sellerie juice can have phenomenal results with our nervous system as well.

Nearly anything can be juiced, with the exception of avocado, bananas, kiwis and anything with that sort of texture.  You can juice kale, lettuce, radishes, potatoes, herbs, bell peppers, mustard leaves, squash, brussel sprouts and many more.  Other than buying quality produce, washing them well, I don’t bother with peeling, cutting off stems, stalks or leaves, nor do I cut out the apple core.  I juice it all.

For this year I want to increase my liquid diet from 32 oz per day to 48/52 oz and with the exception of eggs for protein, I will only eat pure foods and those should be in  raw form as much as possible.  Looking back to last year, the benefits I have enjoyed, I am really excited to make my switch over to liquid foods as much as I can.  From spiritual perspective it is believed, that humans will go from meat eaters to vegetarian, from vegetarian to vegan and from vegan over to liquid nourishment.  Once we make our transition from carbon based beings to crystalline beings we will take another step from liquid foods to drinking in light.  Just think how many people you know in your surroundings who have already decided to go vegetarian or vegan – perhaps there is something to this theory, don’t you think?

New Year is here!

Happy 2013 to all!

The old year surely has brought us many challenges and obstacles.  We have been witnessing the cracking of our various social structures, many of uprisings and breaking away of old thought patterns.

Many of us have chosen to reevaluate our purpose in life, which meant dealing with resolving reoccurring issues in our lives and blockages we have within ourselves.  It has meant diving into the depths, viewing absolutely everything we have tried so hard to ignore, forget, bury and feared.  There is a lot of muck to wade through.  Going through this process myself, I can say, it hasn’t been easy nor pretty but necessary for bringing in the balance.

Many of us wish to  cast off the false matrix our world has been trapped in and reconnect with the Divine PlanGaia too, has been hard at work at making her transition into the next level.  She is eager for us to understand  her not only as a planet but a personality and her own consciousness.    A  global awakening is now taking hold and we should welcome these tumultuous times that come with it, instead of giving into fear.  Fear will keep us locked in the matrix and not allow us to develop our own spiritual consciousness.  However, we also need to stay sceptical and continue  looking behind the curtains, question everything.  A lot  of what has been sold to us as being beneficial to Mother Earth or the Global Community  is in fact more about restricting and keeping us within the Matrix –  it just has a pleasant sounding name to a negative agenda.  Much of the “New Age” stuff actually is intentional disinformation to keep us confused and unsure.

Going over my article I realized how much I got off topic.  I started out wanting to talk about New Year Resolutions and foods, but I will not rewrite, I am sure there is a purpose why I drifted onto this subject.  Blessed be and a grand 2013!

The Citrine

Anchoring in the Golden Light for 2013

Anchoring in the Golden Light for 2013

 

My beautiful Citrine Sphere with Celestite for bringing in the Golden Light for 2013.

The Citrine comes in a pale yellow to a reddish-brown, golden brown and is transparent.  The name derives from the Greek, meaning as much as Lemon Stone but also stems from the French language, Citron.  The Roman Troops wore this stone on their breast plates to protect them from the evil eye.  The Citrine was once valued into the middle ages as a Sun Stone which granted eternal life.

Much of what is found on the market today, are heat-treated Amethyst.  One can identify those by the much darker shades of orange and amber, and of course by the  difference in the stones’ energy.

The crystal works well with any combination of healing crystals but works wonderfully on its own.  It is used to increase ones clarity of thought, enhance creativity and personal will.

The vibration of natural citrine are powerful and allows us to emerge into the energy of Divine Will, the Universe and supports us in our quest for love and joy.  Blockages become apparent so they may be cleared, it also clears energetic blocks and carries strong manifestation properties.  It also may serve one in overcoming of powerlessness.  Because of its strong vibrations, the cleansing of the Citrine is not necessary.

Moonstone

Tumbled moonstone, India

Just as the name indicates, this stone is strongly associated with the Moon and represents the Mother Goddess. This sweet beauty has more of a shimmer than true color, although at times there is a gem-quality blue piece, which can be found. It usually glows in pale shades of milky white grays, peach or bluish tint and is translucent.

The moonstone is another gentle stone yet has powerful attributes. It promotes empathy and intuition and enhances clairvoyance. It encourages the acceptance of psychic gifts, and helps us to embrace the goddess within. It shows us how to appreciate and accept that all existence is subjected to change – just as the moon is constantly changing her shape. However, its foremost attribute is to help in calming and soothing of our emotions.

Of course this wonderful gem has healing abilities as well. It increases the absorption of vitamins and minerals and it assists the digestive and reproductive systems. The Moonstone also aids with the elimination of toxins and water retention.

The Moonstone is also associated with Gardening, so integrating these stones in your garden while visualizing your garden in full bloom while you work is most beneficial.

Moonstone travels through the zodiac, touches several such as Cancer, Libra and Scorpio. Because of this, it is also considered to be the perfect traveling companion, especially on the water and at night.

How To Quickly Rid Yourself Of Negative Energy

Standard

To all Shining Stars!

Three stars

I haven’t had time to write as of late, my apologies.  I appreciate everyone who reads my articles and hope they will continue to support my endeavors.  As much as I enjoy writing and developing my blog, somehow just everyday life leaves me with little extra time.  My topic today will be brief, however it is effective and useful.

We all have encountered people who left us feeling very uncomfortable without really knowing why.  It could be that we feel suddenly sad, irritated or maybe even ”dirty”.  Their negative energy has affected us and we should immediately cleanse ourselves from it so we don’t bring it into or home or let it have an impact on us throughout the day.

Since it’s unlikely that you have apple vinegar in your pocket, or wish to do a complex ritual cleansing in public which will attract attention you surely do not want, here are some simple, quick and inconspicuous solutions:

Some of us know, that a newly purchased item can be cleansed by blowing on it.  The same can be done if you had an unpleasant contact, either blow on the part that came in direct contact, such as your arm or hand, or if it was an all-around unpleasantness, cup your hands in front of your face and blow into your hands.

You can also clear your head by clapping your hands several times (this can be done quietly if needed), and then let one hand glide over the fingers of the other hand and fling away from you to discard the unwanted energy from you.

As always,

Blessed Be!
