A Sad…

Inspiration

Allowing emotion is the first step in processing. Processing leads to clearing. Clearing leads to the freedom from the emotion itself and if necessary, the sort of people who were a part of creating the emotion to begin with. Would you agree that getting rid of some emotions you carry around might be healthy for you? If you don’t know what I am talking about, answer these questions as honestly as you are willing to be…

Have you ever participated in harmful behaviors (over drinking, smoking, sex, etc…)? Would you like to be free from the habits and the corresponding emotions that keep you doing the same thing over and over again? If you answered yes to either of these questions… You MUST begin by Allowing.

Allowance is not passive. Allowance is a brave action which leads to a chemical response in your nervous system and over time brings a new experience of life. Allowing helps to calm the nervous system by capping off the chemicals of guilt and shame, feelings which only lend to deepening our pain, both physical and mental. Allowance also helps to increase dopamine and GABA, neurotransmitters of the brain, creating more availability for a stronger and clearer resolve to find balance in the individual’s experience.

Super Smoothie

Information
Superfoods are considered nutrient dense; much like a zip folder on a computer, open it

SuperSmoothieup and there is a LOT there. It is best to drink this shake in the morning for breakfast, for a natural long-time energy sustainer, or in the evening for dinner to aid in overnight assimilation. When using this smoothie as dinner, follow up with a Triphala and psyllium husk drink and a tall glass of water. This will further help clean the walls of the colon, which is important to keep clean to maintain maximum nutrient absorption

The Wheels on the Bus Go…

Years ago, I was riding the 6 Haight/Parnassus in San Francisco. There were a group of humans who had special needs riding with me that day. I had noticed one young lady looking at me intently. I smiled at her and went back to playing on my phone.

Suddenly I hear…

Her: “Hello? Hello?” I look up and, in fact, she was speaking to me. “How are you today?” she asked.

Me: “I’m doing pretty well. How are you today?” (The truth is, I was having a rough tie of it that day.)

Her: “I’m Ok. You are really pretty.”

Me: “Thank you so much! Really, thank you. I am not feeling very pretty today.”

Her: “Really? How is that possible?”

Me: “Our eyes have a very similar shape.”

Her: “Really? My eyes are very red right now from smoking too much.”

Me: “They are pretty.”

AND then, she just had to kind of think about that.

Soon after, I gave my seat to a woman with an infant and found myself standing next to a man in a wheelchair wearing a tiger cap (yep, ears and all). I shared, “I really like your hat!” He responded as if I had just handed a $100 bill. “Really? Thank you so much!”

He and I both got off the bus at the same stop. It was a full bus and I had to kinda push to get off. When I finally stepped off the back of the bus he was being lowered down. He was still looking at me as if I had just given him the keys to the city. I smiled and waved goodbye. He waved back, still smiling as well.

We all just want to be seen, loved and accepted for who we are. It’s super important to tell people that, and the bus is a great place to practice.
