Plucking Fear From Mind & Body

Published June 22, 2018 by tindertender

This world is a breeding ground for fear. Upon entering this life there is a pure innocence and joy, often stripped away before words are even spoken, or soon thereafter.

Fear lives so deeply within the body/spirit system, sometimes it isn’t even known. Through life a tough exterior is grown, a stiff upper lip, a stubborn thrust of the chin, a bad attitude … whatever it takes to defend the self from the continuous lash of what hurts.

A false joy is developed, many become experts at pretending happiness, they stuff the pain until it cannot be recognized, but it is still there … wrapped in fear. Heck, there are even times when one truly believes they are happy! Then something happens and they begin to question that reality … at least I have.

There are those who coach people to walk into the fear, face it head on … even I have said it, and I believe it! Yet still, knowing this and actually doing it are two different things. Sometimes when we think we are walking into it, we hold back ~ not even knowing we reserved the right to maintain the embedded habit of fear, to hold that wall of protection up just in case.

Yes, this world breeds fear, and also provides what is needed to overcome it … strength is developed, endurance, a stubborn will that calls for us to survive even when we would rather quit.

How does one shed the fear? How does one actually reach so deep inside the core of the being, grab hold of that fear, pinch it, and pluck it right from the body and the mind? There are many theories written and taught by those who say they have no fear … but do they? Neither here nor there, each individual must find a way to their center and have a willingness to honestly evaluate what they find there. It cannot be done for us ~ it can only be done by us, for us.

The question is then, how badly do we wish for peace? At what lengths are we willing to go to create it?

The Sacred Wisdom Keepers know of this better than many. If we long for the truth, if we truly wish to see a better world, this is a good place to search, beginning of course by looking into our own being. There must be a desire to open the mind in order to receive knowledge, and there ought to be a respect for the sharing one receives from an Elder.

Life is short, even when one lives to be what we now consider old. There isn’t time to waste on stubbornness and pretending, not if we long to see a world full of truth, peace, joy, and love.

It’s All About The Nutrients

When I was younger I had an abundance of energy, my body rocked with it, my mind spun with it. Age happened and everything slowed down, became calm and less agitating.

Recently I discovered a recipe for Magnesium water. I learned that the majority of folks are deficient, and this causes all kinds of symptoms and trouble for the body and mind, a few of which are:

  1. Muscle twitches; 2) Mental disorders; 3) Osteoporosis; 4) Fatigue and muscle weakness; 5) High blood pressure; 6) Irregular heartbeat

Looking at life I can see I am experiencing many of these symptoms. Controlled, of course, by Big Pharma, because they care about me.

Since drinking the magnesium water, 3/4 cup morning and evening, I feel my charge coming back. A little uncomfortable, I remember youth and how it felt in my body. Now though, I understand this means health and abundant power. The neurons are firing, my nervous system coming alive once more.

3 TBSP Milk of Magnesia
1 Liter carbonated water (unflavored)

Time to deal with this youthful feeling in an experienced and adult manner. Oh how fortunate to be able to do this again.

DIY Shampoo Bar

Published June 14, 2018 by tindertender

Eliminating plastics from the household is turning out to be quite the challenge! Torn between tossing everything and replacing with Corning-ware or stainless steel or wood, I keep what I have for now. I worry about it winding up in the ocean, or land fill to stay for centuries.

I’ve been distilling my water for two years now. I do whatever I can to buy things in glass, and I am working on making reusable grocery bags the new norm. While shopping I try to avoid the things in plastic, but it is everywhere!! Poison galore … bamboo tooth brushes and bamboo toilet paper are handy dandy items I’ve adopted into the home.

Recently I have decided to start making my own shampoo bars. I wish to eliminate the plastic bottles shampoo and conditioner come in from my household, and so I will. Below is a recipe I came across. I await the ingredients I’ve ordered and when they arrive I will get busy and teach myself the art of making good soap.

For my first batch I thank:

I am excited to try this recipe and be on my way to further disentanglement of that which is so destructive and disruptive of cellular function.

Ingredients needed to make DIY Shampoo Bar:

1 Unrefined Coconut Oil – 8 oz.

2 Olive Oil – 3.2 oz.

3 Castor Oil – 2.24 oz.

4 Sunflower Oil – 1.28 oz.

5 Raw Unrefined Cocoa Butter – 1.28 oz.

6 Food Grade Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) – 2.2 oz.

7 Coconut Milk or Distilled Water – 2.6 oz.

8 (optional) Avocado – 1.25 oz.

9 (optional) Rhassoul Clay – 1 tablespoon.

There are so many talented and creative people in this world! To them I give a huge Thank You!” for sharing your recipes, ideas, and expertise. In deep gratitude I accept the blessing of your shared knowledge as I work to break ‘recent tradition’ (of the last century) and move deep into the heart of lore, improving on present circumstance.

Old wives tales and skills which continue from way back when … I welcome you into my world.

Moving Forward, Practicing Release

Published June 2, 2018 by tindertender

While threatening behavior is followed by apology, it isn’t so easy to move beyond it. At one time it may have felt that suffering was deserved. It was not understood why it had to be that way, all that had ever been wanted was to love and be loved.

Step-Families come and go, nothing steady, supportive, or nourishing. Chaos has been part of life, as it was constantly disrupted and altered … for a time, until next time.

Children who experience these things grow to think it’s their fault, one parent or both in emotional pain, and the empathic child takes it on, wearing it as if it were their own.

Burdens inherited become habits.

Habits are meant to be broken.

Break the cycle and embrace your capacity for nurturing and caring … for self, for others, for the entirety of the world. It is you … and you … and you, who will heal this planet. When you finally let go of old habits taught, and build the life you’ve always wanted, the earth, and all who dwell here, will benefit.

No one has a more special gift to offer than you … none more than, none less than. True courage comes from looking long and hard at personal history. Take a look at past responses, and actions, and ways of thinking. Listen once more to the things people have said.

Move forward … carefully, purposefully, consciously aware and connected to everything that is. If you choose, create from this space, with loving intention for health, well-being, and an end of suffering for all.

What Is The Point?

Published May 22, 2018 by tindertender

Responsibility … what is it?

What on earth

The dogs get fed every morning and every evening, they are let outside to do their business often. The job is gone to and the clock punched, day after day. Wages are earned and taxes and bills are paid. But is this all there is?

Do responsibility and purpose go hand in hand? If so … what is purpose? Surely there is more to it than breakfast, lunch and dinner. The days meld one into the other. The garden is watered, the grass mowed, the mail checked and the phone answered … there isn’t much of anything to say.

Raising awareness about the mass poisoning of the human system, to the earth and waters too … is difficult for many do not wish to know, they deny it and then ridicule those who tell the truth. What is the point? Obviously no one will be saved. Certainly not by me.

Purpose … it would be nice to know what it is … to have one.  I may as well kick back and paint, or read. There’s nothing to be done … change comes from within, and if no one is wiling to go there, change will never be.

What is the responsibility … what is the purpose … what is the point?

What is the point …

Food, Cells and Health

Published May 16, 2018 by tindertender

Past meals have caused the body to erupt violently. This has shown up as illness and lack of strength or passion. At times the day seems to drag by and at others an extreme burst of energy pours forth. Turbulence within the body causes chaos, in the muscles and in the mind.

As life moves past, an awareness of the earth and waters set in. What chemicals are in them, in the foods eaten? What choices are being made about nutrition?

Energetic Anatomy

Through vigilance surrounding an altered diet, change occurs. The body becomes stronger, the cells begin to transfer messages to each other more easily. The energetic power of the mind and the physical form multiplies.

These adjustments made, conscious and steady, will change health. The DNA will begin to heal, the harm done begins to dissipate. Once this is felt, new habits become easier, for it is obvious the changes are beneficial.
