Nourishing Green Elixirs: Ancient Mother Wisdom

:“The Wise Woman says good health is flexibility, opening to change, availability for transformation, being grounded while traveling the spiral of life & death & rebirth.  Wise Women nourish.  We do not fix, or cure or balance.  Health is inherent in each being, with nourishment being the key that unlocks it.  Nourish health, wholeness, holiness, in each unique individual.  Aware of the holographic interconnectedness with all things.”
Susun S. Weed, herbalist & author.

Nourishing our bodies to unlock the health that is inherent in our very beings.  That is the key.  In our modern world it is often difficult to get the nourishment we need from the food we eat.  Drinking nourishing herbal infusions (Green Elixirs) daily is the best way I know to provide all the vitamins and minerals our bodies really need.  It’s simple, it’s inexpensive and it really works.””

I love Herbal Infusions! Red Raspberry Leaf is my favorite, but also love the herbs shared on this webpage! Please visit, and be inspired to experiment, learn to identify and connect with the plant world. With this knowledge of the plants, knowing how to nourish yourself with them, is freedom beyond words.

As you turn you…

As you turn your attention toward the positive aspects of the personalities and behaviors of others with whom you share your planet, you will train your point of attraction in the direction of only what you desire.

It is necessary to use your own self-discipline in directing your
thoughts to the positive aspects of your current relationships before more of what you do want can come to you.

Since we are wired to create habits, why not make true greatness, compassion, genius, ingenuity, empowerment, love, awareness, generosity, healing, quantum manifestation, or divinity our new habits?

We The People must stand together for Food Freedom.

Morningland Dairy's Uncheese Party

Morningland Dairy—The Final Solution

©Doreen Hannes 2013

On August 26th, 2010 the destruction of Morningland Dairy began. Having lost a two and half year battle with cancer of the State, the interment will take place on January 25th, 2013.

People involved in all aspects of food production, be it growing, processing or distributing, should read through all the documentation [found on this blog – Hen] and understand that Morningland’s saga is the model for all independent food production under the FDA’s new Food Safety Modernization Act. Critical to this destruction are “science-based standards” as opposed to scientifically accurate controls and concerns. The Global Food Safety Initiative combined with “Good Agricultural Practices” and the “Guide to Good Farming” will ensure that an inability to feed the population will occur.  Morningland Dairy is an early casualty of these “science based standards”.

I Am Good Fortune

ASK NOT GOOD FORTUNE

ONE THING the world needs now is people who can tolerate ambiguity, people who are challenged, not threatened by the state of the world. I want to suggest a few things such maturity might require.

First, do not seek security in things, nor yet in status. The care of possessions, and position, is time- consuming and energy-consuming, and they can be taken from you by a thief in the night, by a fire in the night, by a change in political fortunes, by any numbers of disasters. Whatever security you have lies in yourself.

Henceforth I ask not good fortune. I myself am good fortune.

If you understand yourself, both your strengths and limitations, If you like the person you are, if you acquire coping skills through experience, if you are not too encumbered, and if you know- inwardly- that disaster cannot ultimately overcome you, then you have gone a long way to maturity. You will be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Second, don’t rest In intellectual security, for your philosophy and the knowledge on which it rests are likely to become obsolete. Wisdom is not amassing facts….

Third, the only real security in the end is the love we have given and the love we have received. All else can be taken from us. So pour out your love and friendship and do not hoard it … And don’t delay or hesitate In standing up to be counted with the oppressed.

Finally, cultivate the light touch. Develop a sense of humor. Learn to light up a room with joy when you enter. Accept the challenge of our chaotic and dangerous word with a sense of adventure, of gratitude that our time is now.

– Elizabeth Watson, 1980.

I find myself feeling intensely inspired by the Shaker & Quaker Faiths, they share so much love and wisdom. I may not agree with every one of their beliefs, but so many of them really resonate with my heart and heart-centered beliefs. I’m thankful for their shining example of how to practice positive thinking, compassion, spirituality experienced through the individual and how they did their best at everything they set their hands and heart to.

Thought Seeds

I enjoy thinking of my thoughts as  fragile seeds, that I plant or press into the fertile soil of the Universe, nurture and feed with my attention and feeling good about them and watch as they sprout and unfold bearing beautiful fruit, only to produce more seeds of desire for me to press into the Universe. I’ll never get it wrong, and I’ll never get it done. These things feel good to me as I think them. So I thought I’d share 🙂

 

I choose to believe that Heaven Surrounds Me

I Live as if heaven surrounds Me – cuz it does!

How can I bring myself into vibrational alignment with the desires that my experience has produced?

Pay attention to the way I feel, and deliberately choose thoughts –about everything– that feel good to me when I think them.

I am so happy and thankful Now that:

  1. my kitchen, pantry and food storage are fully stocked with nutrient dense, vibrationally healthy foods that nourish our bodies/minds and souls and all of the miraculous functions that work in harmony, to make life sweet.
  2. myself, my husband and kids are healthy, wealthy, happy and free.
  3. our planet and all of her children are living and thriving in harmony, respect and sustenance for all.
  4. I am living my dreams, as a beneficial organism in harmony with nature, appreciating and enjoying the endless abundance of the Earth.
  5. I am learning about and practicing the magical effects of cultivating and consuming probiotic foods.
  6. new sustainable, free energy devices are being created in abundance freeing all people from the obsolete system that desires to enslave others.

Benefits of Practicing a Great Attitude

“A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.”

Earl Nightingale

 

Cultivating, nurturing, and persistently practicing (to the best of our ability, moment to moment), a Positive Attitude can attract miracles into our life. Changing ones attitude patterns is challenging, and empowering beyond belief if one keeps at it! Choosing ones thoughts, intents, and desired feelings is a powerful ally in being a Conscious Co.Creator of our own experiences. Learning the Emotion/Feeling Language of the Universe, and learning to discern that information to help one choose their thoughts wisely is an amazing journey/adventure that makes life worth living! I am having the time of my life and enjoying watching my thought/seeds manifest into my physical experience. I’m so thankful for this Opportunity at Life!

15 Things to Give Up in order to Attract More Happiness

15 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy
By wakingtimes.com

Mar 31, 2012 – 2:36:26 AM

 

 

Here is a list of 15 things which, if you give up on them, will make your life a lot easier and much, much happier. We hold on to so many things that cause us a great deal of pain, stress and suffering – and instead of letting them all go, instead of allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy – we cling on to them. Not anymore. Starting today we will give up on all those things that no longer serve us, and we will embrace change. Ready? Here we go:

 

1. Give up your need to always be right. There are so many of us who can’t stand the idea of being wrong – wanting to always be right – even at the risk of ending great relationships or causing a great deal of stress and pain, for us and for others. It’s just not worth it. Whenever you feel the ‘urgent’ need to jump into a fight over who is right and who is wrong, ask yourself this question: “Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?”  Wayne Dyer. What difference will that make? Is your ego really that big?

 

2. Give up your need for control. Be willing to give up your need to always control everything that happens to you and around you – situations, events, people, etc. Whether they are loved ones, coworkers, or just strangers you meet on the street – just allow them to be. Allow everything and everyone to be just as they are and you will see how much better will that make you feel.

 

“By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond winning.” Lao Tzu

 

3. Give up on blame. Give up on your need to blame others for what you have or don’t have, for what you feel or don’t feel. Stop giving your powers away and start taking responsibility for your life.

 

4. Give up your self-defeating self-talk. Oh my. How many people are hurting themselves because of their negative, polluted and repetitive self-defeating mindset? Don’t believe everything that your mind is telling you – especially if it’s negative and self-defeating. You are better than that.

 

“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive.” Eckhart Tolle

 

5. Give up your limiting beliefs about what you can or cannot do, about what is possible or impossible. From now on, you are no longer going to allow your limiting beliefs to keep you stuck in the wrong place. Spread your wings and fly!

 

“A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind” Elly Roselle

 

6. Give up complaining. Give up your constant need to complain about those many, many, maaany things – people, situations, events that make you unhappy, sad and depressed. Nobody can make you unhappy, no situation can make you sad or miserable unless you allow it to. It’s not the situation that triggers those feelings in you, but how you choose to look at it. Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.

7. Give up the luxury of criticism. Give up your need to criticize things, events or people that are different than you. We are all different, yet we are all the same. We all want to be happy, we all want to love and be loved and we all want to be understood. We all want something, and something is wished by us all.

8. Give up your need to impress others. Stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not just to make others like you. It doesn’t work this way. The moment you stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not, the moment you take of all your masks, the moment you accept and embrace the real you, you will find people will be drawn to you, effortlessly.

9. Give up your resistance to change. Change is good. Change will help you move from A to B. Change will help you make improvements in your life and also the lives of those around you. Follow your bliss, embrace change – don’t resist it.

 

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls” Joseph Campbell

 

10. Give up labels. Stop labeling those things, people or events that you don’t understand as being weird or different and try opening your mind, little by little. Minds only work when open.

 

“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” Wayne Dyer

 

11. Give up on your fears. Fear is just an illusion, it doesn’t exist – you created it. It’s all in your mind. Correct the inside and the outside will fall into place.

 

“The only fear we have to fear, is fear itself.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

12. Give up your excuses. Send them packing and tell them they’re fired. You no longer need them. A lot of times we limit ourselves because of the many excuses we use. Instead of growing and working on improving ourselves and our lives, we get stuck, lying to ourselves, using all kind of excuses – excuses that 99.9% of the time are not even real.

13. Give up the past. I know, I know. It’s hard. Especially when the past looks so much better than the present and the future looks so frightening, but you have to take into consideration the fact that the present moment is all you have and all you will ever have. The past you are now longing for – the past that you are now dreaming about – was ignored by you when it was present. Stop deluding yourself. Be present in everything you do and enjoy life. After all life is a journey not a destination. Have a clear vision for the future, prepare yourself, but always be present in the now.

14. Give up attachment. This is a concept that, for most of us is so hard to grasp and I have to tell you that it was for me too, (it still is) but it’s not something impossible. You get better and better at with time and practice. The moment you detach yourself from all things, (and that doesn’t mean you give up your love for them – because love and attachment have nothing to do with one another, attachment comes from a place of fear, while love… well, real love is pure, kind, and self less, where there is love there can’t be fear, and because of that, attachment and love cannot coexist) you become so peaceful, so tolerant, so kind, and so serene. You will get to a place where you will be able to understand all things without even trying. A state beyond words.

15. Give up living your life to other people’s expectations. Way too many people are living a life that is not theirs to live. They live their lives according to what others think is best for them, they live their lives according to what their parents think is best for them, to what their friends, their enemies and their teachers, their government and the media think is best for them. They ignore their inner voice, that inner calling. They are so busy with pleasing everybody, with living up to other people’s expectations, that they lose control over their lives. They forget what makes them happy, what they want, what they need….and eventually they forget about themselves.  You have one life – this one right now – you must live it, own it, and especially don’t let other people’s opinions distract you from your path.

Cells are Living Beings

“Every cell in your body is a living being that depends on you.  You are responsible for all of those beings.   For all those living beings that are your cells, you are God. You can provide what they need; you can love all those living beings, or you can be so mean to them. ” ~don Miguel Ruiz

This statement profoundly stirs emotion within my Being, gratitude pulses from my heart to these amazing little Beings that make up the physical vessel that ^i^ dwell in, and am experiencing this beautiful life through. I believe that I am an Organism made of countless smaller Organisms. Microbes my Kinfolk, they take care of countless miracles that make my life sweeter. Over the past 2 years I have been becoming more and more aware of the Microbial World, and learning how to cultivate a powerful symbiotic relationship with them within my body and my environment, where we care for each other. Health, Wealth, Happy & Free ❤ Thank you so much Microbes, I love you with all of my Beingness!

Get Through It- good advice

Get through it

On the other side of the challenge is value. Get through it, and get the value.

Though the effort makes you weary, it also makes you strong. Get through it, and enjoy the full benefit of that strength.

You’ve already made it this far, and you’ve already established some good momentum. To get through it, just keep going.

Keep going, though the urge to quit may be strong. Keep going, get through it and get the rewards you’ve earned.

Get through it, not by fighting but by accepting and persisting in each moment. Get through it, not with resentment for what you must do but with gratitude for what you can accomplish.

You have what it takes, because what it takes is simply making one step, and then the next, and then the next. Step forward, get through it, and bring your own unique value more fully to life.

— Ralph Marston

“The Humanure Handbook” Book Recommendation/Review

“Albert Einstein once remarked that the human race will require an entirely new manner of thinking if it is to survive. I am inclined to agree. Our “waste disposal” systems must be rethought. As an alternative to our current throw-away mentality, we can understand that organic material is a resource, rather than a waste, that can be beneficially recycled using natural processes.” – Joe Jenkins

“We have to stop thinking of human excrement and organic refuse as waste. When we do, then we’ll stop defecating in our drinking water and stop sending our garbage to landfills.” – Joe Jenkins

For all those interested in Sustainability, Self-Responsibility, and being a beneficial Earthen Organism (compared to most human people especially in the West, who live like parasites to Earth) I recommend reading “The Humanure Handbook” by Joseph Jenkins. Joseph has been composting his own (and his family’s) “humanure” (human feces) and utilizing it as a valuable resource that adds rich fertility to his soil, for the better part of 3 decades! And according to him, he and his family have been enjoying vibrant health. He writes from his heart, and from the confident place of experience and accumulated knowledge, he also has a great sense of humor, I really enjoyed reading this book.

The book starts off pointing out the highly inefficient and problematic current system that deals with the majority of peoples human excreta in the Western World. This “Waste Management” system is based on a fearful, and in my opinion ignorant misinterpretation of a valuable resource of “humanure” and, based on this misunderstanding is the biggest polluter of Water, Air and Soil, on Earth, that gets worse with each passing day. A system that labels human excreta as “waste” (many other cultures on Earth think of human excreta as a valuable renewable resource that gives back fertility to the land when properly thermophilicly composted… Google: hunzakuts people- they are famous for their vibrant health, longevity and their ancient wise agriculture practices). Then the book describes many different styles of composting toilets, the difference of the “compost” at the end of its cycle and the process of how to properly compost any excreta to kill all pathogens and turn turds into rich healthy compost, with out creating any “waste”, pollution or odorous mess. The simplicity is so refreshing and empowering.

I feel sad when I think of going on water only because people in our egotistical and ignorant culture like so much to just shit in our MOST SACRED and Important Natural Resource, Water. WATER! Just for the “convenience” of being able to excrete and flush and walk away, not caring where the shit goes. This “taboo” subject is one many people don’t want to face. We need to grow the hell up, and wake up to the damage this cultural psychological retardation (a.k.a. “fecophobia”) is actively doing to our SHARED Planet and ONLY Host!! (unless you have a spaceship we have no where to go!) Where our feces and urine goes after we “flush it away” is a disturbing journey that effects the Planet and all Her inhabitants with pollution because it is handled in such a STUPID, irresponsible totally unnecessary, wastefully expensive way! (i.e. waste water treatment centers and septic tanks- any thing that dumps raw shit into water like creeks or allowed to pollute ground water should be banned… no it should be common f*%$ing sense?! RIGHT?! I don’t want to be poisoned by peoples crap and urine! Do you?).

Be aware Fecophobes, its time to awaken to the TRUTH that can save Humanity from being targeted by Earth’s Immune System as a pathogen and eliminated from Her skin. There is no waste in Nature! Our own fear of Human Excreta is the cause behind such irrational irresponsible behavior, and the whole of the planet is the One paying for it. Humanure is a natural byproduct of the human organism consuming foods grown from the Earth, in soil that is mixed with fecal matter from other creatures, that the plants eat and bear fruit, that we eat. Why is it ok to spread raw horse, cow or chicken shit on our soil for fertilizing plants for eating, but humanure is called “waste” and is instead carelessly and most likely ignorantly used to pollute our planet? The human fecophobes just keep on “flushing away” our raw polluting poo out to sea for Nature to deal with? This practice has proven to be KILLING so many species and ruining habitats that will take the Earth great effort and time to heal, not to mention poisoning our drinking water causing various diseases and illness for humans, animals and plants, all species are effected by this insanity!

I’m angry at myself for being so blind and irresponsible for so long as well. Its hard to live in this urban community that still uses “traditional” water flushing sewer systems and peeing and excreting in the clear water in the toilet. I am even more motivated and excited to get out on our land and start anew! Away from all this established madness and insanity.  I want to BE the Change so much… what helps me get through still having to use the flushing loo here in the city, I just imagine and pretend I’m on the farm whenever I have to go, and visualize actually going in my customized composting excreta collector. I’ve already drawn out a desired design! Created from readily available materials, low cost, efficient, sanitary, odorless and even attractive!

To say the least I am inspired! I feel like I’ve reached a new depth of joining the Circle of Life, and Being the Change by desiring to take FULL responsibility for all the I choose, be, think, do, consume and excrete. Hallelujah! Ha ha ha!

Compost is just part of natural “organic” or eco-friendly farming, its also the link that has been broken in the human’s integration into the circle of life. We act as if we are separate from Nature, and live like that… look at the damage this way of thinking has caused on our little planet. I am having a fabulous experience of educating myself on the proccess of re-integrating into Nature. I want to be part of the solution, part of Healing the Earth. I feel like I’m learning a new language, a new way of seeing the world.  Getting to know my Microbial Kin, and how to responsibly and creatively encourage the beneficial ones to surround my self and family, resulting in vibrant health, higher/happier vibrations, miracles, connectedness with the Earth and My Soul. Truly a Spiritually Binding Experience. Something as “simple” as adding fertility back to the soil, brings me closer to my Creator. I desire with excited anticipation to be using all that we are blessed with, creating zero waste like the indigenous peoples did for a millenia (and still do in cultures like the Hunza’s) and learning to recognize value in the most unexpected places.

The next book on my Wish List:

What is Defeat?

“What is defeat? Nothing but education; nothing but the first step to something better.”

Wendell Phillips

 

Amen to this! The winds of change is the only constant in this Universe. The Universe/God/Energy is always moving, into form, through form and out of form. I truly feel that we have been educated to fear change, to fear change is to Fear Life. We didn’t come here to dwell in fear, we came to this physical world to LIVE in JOY! This is how I desire to live my life each day. In Joy. When one learns to just go with the flow and have faith in Life, things ALWAYS work out, and in my experience things work out better than I could imagine or anticipate. When I lived in fear the first 20 or so years of my life, my thought patterns were dominated by worry, fear, self doubt, self loathing, and blame and victimization. My thought patterns were the lens through which I view the world and everyone in it. When I was 27 I watched, “What The Bleep Do We Know?” and soon after “The Secret”, and I felt the truth and realized I have always been creating my life, but by default with the negative thoughts and beliefs I picked up on my physical journey from childhood and beyond. I can choose to change my thought patterns, and once I began practicing new thoughts, ones I wanted to think, about desires and good feeling thoughts, miracles began unfolding in my life! With each belief I changed, a part of “me” died or ended, and a new part was “born” and with more intentful practice became a joyful part of my personality. I create a better Me, in Joy!

Great Question

“How can I bring myself into vibrational alignment with the desires that my experience has produced?”

This is a potent, empowering question! I love the thoughts asking and sitting with this question brings. I recommend it highly to anyone wanting to cultivate more joy in their lives and be miracle magnets!

“Pay attention to the way you feel, and deliberately choose thoughts –about everything– that feel good to you when you think them.”

So thankful for the teachings of Abraham! I am reading “Ask and It Is Given”, and am loving the encouragement and powerful positive vortex I feel whenever I read in it!
