"The two most important things in your body are the upper palate, which is 
the base of the hypothalamus, because the hypothalamus controls the entire 
nervous system, and the tip of the tongue, which affects the central nerve channel, shushumna. That controls your entire psyche."

“Prayer is talking to God. Meditation is letting God talk to you." -- Yogi Bhajan

If you are new to meditation and your searching the internet for guidance, your head may wind up spinning instead of silent, which defeats the purpose of your search. I'm no expert, though I've done my fair share of research, as well as practice. So let me try and break it down as simply as possible. The main goal is silence and stillness. Learning how to Be.

You can get on YouTube and find an abundance of meditation 'sounds'. Many are very good, some you need to be wary of. For some, it is easier to have a mantra, music or sound which helps to instill a calm mind and body. That's fine. But they should not be the entire meditation. They should Lead you to the calm state in which meditation becomes possible. Where thoughts trail instead of lead. So the best advice I have for those who are doing this without a vibrational guide is to sit comfortably, breath in and out through the nose and bring all of your attention to your body. Feel your body as you breath in and out. As your eyes are closed, See. Look at the darkness. You may even begin seeing things, or colors. Don't become so drawn to anything that you start naming them, or judging what they may be. You are now the observer and accepting each moment. Continue deep breathing. When thoughts come, don't be frustrated. Just become aware that you are thinking and gently move back to watching. Watch your thoughts. If you chose meditation music, chants etc, be sure they aren't too long. 10-20 minutes should be plenty. From there go deeper into yourself.

The benefits of connecting with your source are many. You become the watcher of your thoughts, the presence behind the doing and become being. Active, to inactive. In this state, the body is able to relax and heal on all levels. How does it do that? Click on the link above and right below the quote. GREAT info there! But a few benefits to note are these:
Lowering blood pressure
Boosting the immune system
Reducing stress
Decalcifying the pituitary gland
Oxygenating your cells through mindful breathing
Releasing tension and anger
Relieving depression

We all associate meditation with a sitting posture, breathing, stillness, quiet and maybe matras or prayers. There are Many variations of these things and they all have different benefits. But they aren't the only way. You can meditate during the day when your are wide awake. Really, complete awareness in the moment, at any time, is a form of meditation with many benefits. When you are walking, you can become fully aware of your body as it moves. How it feels with each step. Come out of your thoughts and into awareness of your body. This also relieves the body of stress and makes room for healing. For those with minds in overdrive, it will still that process and give you much more clarity in each moment. Your mind will perform better when it's give proper attention. Also sitting still somewhere for a few moments and bringing all of your awareness to your heart will be Very beneficial. Hear it beating, or Feel it beating. This has a powerful affect on us as a whole. The heart actually talks to the brain and bringing awareness to it brings coherence to the body, mind and spirit. We are all energy and if our energy is off, we are off. Be focused. Stop identifying with just the thoughts in your mind. They are not who you are. Who you are is something much deeper and the path of meditation is the doorway to knowing yourself and realizing yourself. As a side note, our words all have vibrations. The words are different and they affect different areas of our bodies. Try a chant sometime. You will notice the vibration somewhere specific in your body. That vibration is healing to that area. The ancient Egyptians knew about sound healing, as did all of our spiritual teachers. They understood the energy and sound of the universe as it relates directly to us. Talking to God within through prayer is excellent, but Listening is how we heal and allow him to guide us. Meditation is the door to love, health and freedom. Walk through!

If you're like me, you don't want to spend a lot of time cooking, but you want to eat healthy. I had never been a fan of cooked vegetables till I discovered electric steamers. Every day, I eat a large variety of fruits, seeds and vegetables in no time! And it really isn't bad for those on a budget. You just need to learn how much you will eat and not waste the food. It's all filling. Following are the two devices that changed my life. But first, a list of foods I will consume in one day, with minor variations in the fruits or veggies: 1/4 each apple, pear, cucumber. 1 banana, mix of berries, cinnamon, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, carrots, peppers, potato, cabbage leaf or kale, mushrooms, brussels sprouts, tomatoes, broccoli, squash, olive oil, garlic tons of seasonings. Click on the First & Second headers for links to order them, if you like. 


As you can see, you can cram a Lot of food in this little gem. I don't eat a lot of meat, so I usually just use 1 tier. The good news is that you can put frozen meat in there (season it up), then add the second tier with veggies later in the cooking process. Be VERY careful with the lid when it's been on. HOT! It cooks perfectly. I usually steam a lot of veggies. And I use Figi water to steam. You don't need much and this eliminates the fluoridated and chlorinated water. Ick. When I set them to steam, I get out a bowl and add my oil of choice. I use Olive, hemp, sesame, coconut...whatever the mood is. Then add all my favorite seasonings. When the veggies are done, I toss them around in the mixture and voila! One of my favorite additions is toasted sesame oil. Just a little. Great flavor. Maybe seasoned bread crumbs if you do bread. Anything really! Parmesan cheese, whatever...I keep the veggies in a covered bowl in the frig as well. Be careful with cut onions as they will absorb the toxins in the frig if left unsealed. I have started using dried minced onion with my veggies. I like the flavor better anyway. I also keep a russet and sweet potato on hand to throw in now and then. Just a sweet potato with butter, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg is wonderful. Be creative and never get bored.

Why is this my favorite juicer? The reasons are many. I tried the standard juicer, but what a waste of food and fiber in what was left behind. So I bought the Nutri Bullet. I was happy with it, but it wasn't as smooth as I would like and I went through 2 of them in a short time. I recently switched to this. It was $89.00 at Wal-Mart and worth every penny. First of all, you blend everything in one cup, take it with you when you go and clean when you're done. This also has the flip top lid, which the other one didn't. Much easier for drinking. And I couldn't Believe how much smoother it was than the bullet! Why? I don't know. I think they are the same speed. So the one problem I had when I first started juicing was the waste of food gone bad. I now know how much I will eat and don't over buy. It needs to be affordable. Here's how I do it. Note that the skins stay on from the fruits, including the cucumber, which is VERY hydrating, by the way. I buy a couple apples (this one is daily because of health benefits) a couple peaches, pears, cucumbers and bunch of bananas. Each day I use a banana as well. Buy a bag of frozen mixed berries. I throw in a handful a day. Cut out a 1/4 of the fruit your using and chop down a little bit from there. I keep them all in a bowl in the frig with saran wrap over it. Some citrus fruit I wrap a napkin around. OH! Lemons, limes and oranges. I cut a sliver of each and squeeze in the juice. I also keep a jar of seeds. It's a mix of hemp, flax and chia. I toss some of those in along with some shredded organic coconut and dash of cinnamon. Honey...whatever you like. Follow juicer directions, add water of course (Figi for me), zap, cap, drink and go! Power packed! And one more thing to do is buy grapes and freeze them. I also cut a pineapple and flash freeze that. Cut in chunks, put pieces on a baking sheet, set in freezer for 30-45 minutes then bag and freeze. You Can save money and be healthy. :) The possibilities are endless. Add yogurt if you like. Just be sure to add water as well.

It seems like a lot of work, but trust me, once you get in a routine, it all happens in under 5 minutes and your off. And there's barely Any clean up!

Here's to good health for a busy lifestyle and a tight budget!


My preface to an awesome chapter of the bible: The bible tells us the meaning is hidden. Then why do so many take it literally?

Does no one understand the number 7 in the bible? It's the 7 chakras. Always. The number 5? It's your 5 sense which must be killed out in order to be with God in meditation where you are to "take no thought" which is said by Jesus over and over again..Thought is attached to the senses and to the male aspect. The male and female aspects are in the bible over and over again. The bible states a MALE lamb without blemish must be sacrificed. Male is the logic, the thoughts. The lamb is Aries, the pineal gland.

Ex 12:5
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats.
Who is of the first year, or first born?
1 Corinthians 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1st is the flesh, thoughts, lower mind. 2nd is spirit, God, higher mind.
Sheep and Goats are thoughts.The shepperd is the Watcher. He is to WATCH the sheep. Watch the thoughts In meditation. You separate from the lower mind and rise to the higher mind, which Sees the thoughts, the lower, but becomes the higher through the pineal gland, where Jacob saw God face to face in the land of peniel. This is the practice of meditation.

Matthew 6:2 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
This is the 3rd eye taught in Hinduism and other cultures. In meditation you focus between the brow, in the center. The single eye. Ask any Hindu. Raising the kundalini (Coiled serpent at the base of the spine coiled THREE AND A HALF TIMES. (You will find 3 1/2 in Revelations) raise it up through the 7 chakras and light comes through the pineal gland, which is normally soft but in meditation becomes like stone, or rock "Upon this rock I will build my church" said by Jesus to Peter, which means petros or rock.

These people were amazing!!
They knew things that we are just learning scientifically. They shared the secrets of the universe but we've been blinded by the church! Right here it tells us they are slowing killing Jesus out of us and don't want us to know the power he gives us if we dwell within in him. Matthew 26: 3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, 4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.

And here we are shown the secrets of meditation, as well as in many other verses.
Isaiah 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. 

Where is God, Where is heaven? We are also told, in the bible, that a temple is a place made without hands or tools. Because it's within You! Right where Jesus said heaven is. Within. Luke 17 20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

I Love John 14. At the end he states to Arise. You must rise through all 7 chakras, which pass over the THIRTY THREE vertebrae to the CROWN chakra in the place where Jacob saw God face to face in the land of peniel, the PINEAL Gland. So much more and nothing contradicts this. I Chose to follow Jesus' teachings and it's been very healing. 

JOHN 14 
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
