Eating Clean

Post Passover I am not a slave to pizza and cookies and pretzels. they taste good in moderation.
I had my requisite piece of pizza Saturday night, still waiting for a beer. After sleeping in the hospital for two nights with a friend who had emergency surgery, you bet I could use a beer. I'm grateful for many things, there are lots of miracles to share.

I've been craving sauerkraut-tangy, and mung bean sprouts-crunchy. I've soaked and sprouted them. they're ready to sprinkle on a salad, or eat as a snack. After living simply during Passover, we don't NEED a whole lot. I'm staying with families that live on white flour-packaged cereal, bagels,  cracket

its cheap, easy.  I'm surrounded by yogurt-however I don't want it to be a staple, its a treat. 

Here's my list of essentials

Nori seaweed-high in minerals, can make wraps
Sauerkraut-good for the gut
sprouts have a lot of enzymes accessible to us
I got broccoli
mung beans are easy to sprout
avocado, eggs,and almond butter are my protein source
Lemons are great when they are local, like across the street! street. I wash kale, cut in small pieces, added lemon  juice, pink salt and avocado to a boiled egg-delicious!

Going higher and higher!

I've wandered, I wondered, Some poeple run; run from fear from themselves. Other people run towards. I gracefully accept being a wanderer, an explorer, a seeker who desires much more than the mundane. And I won't settle. I want to raise my vibration, to raise the vibrations around me. And perhaps that is why I ran from a relationship that had the potential to ground me, that it didn't feel like a vibrational match. I'm on the Pacific Surfliner Train headed to Solana Beach to spend shabbat with my friend Carina and her husband and Baruch and their family to explore Carmel Valley. Sounds enchanting. Sharing this excerpt of a teaching from Shaul Youkodevich trancribed by Jenny Hanna Gross. So we have a message in this parsha. And r'Ashlag explains clearly; in
order for a person to reach immortality, to get away from pain, misery
and suffering, a person has to raise his frequency to that of
theCreator, which means; transforming anger, doubt, chaos, into higher
levels of thinking, feeling, reacting, state of being. How does a
person, r'Ashlag asks, raise his frequency? It is very hard. Many
people start to learn kabala, they experience an amazing high as they
start, feeling their luck changes, they have this burst of wind, of
spirituality into their minds and bodies and they start floating,
ruach/spirit also means wind. And then a few weeks/months later they
hit a wall, bc Rabbi Ashlag explains, it's like a missile, or like
sending a satellite to outer space. The first stage is the strongest,
it makes a lot of noise, power and energy. This is the beginning of
shabbat, the first engine, there's a lot of noise, jumping, singing,
bc you have to take off from the physical world and it's tough, just
to get above gravity, but then in the morning you can get easily
pushed up to the sky and the third phase in the dusk of Saturday
evening, you don't need any lift, you just need to orbit, this is why
third meal is so calm, it's not a take off.. Then havdalah, you have
the landing. R'Ashlag is saying, how much fuel does a rocket ship
need? How much fuel does a person need to raise himself? In the
beginning you need a lot of energy. But then most people, the
excitement is over after a short while and they have no fuel left, and
there's a crash landing. Where can we take the fuel from ? The zohar
explains; if you want to live; yes you need to make money to buy food
and have a roof over your head and you need to invest a lot of money
in a community for all and for one, where everyone is coaching
everyone else, when one falls everyone picks him up and when someone
else falls, everyone picks him up. The Ari had 25 students divided
into 3 groups. This is the secret to the world after the golden calf,
if we want to achieve life, we need to find a few people, start with
2; where you will coach them and they will coach you, and this is the
way to push to higher frequency levels to excel in the chaos, and
start to transform it. The honey these 'beehives' create can deeply
nourish the whle world.   Shabbat Shalom..!

Get the Oxytocin flowing!

STop It JUst Stop it

I'm taking a break from Technology. I'm going to honor that I'm a mystic. Mystics need space. they need beauty. air. I'm going to to find it and trust that its all coming together. resisting doesn't help the process.

Gasping for air

When my soul tells me to go to the beach, I gotta listen. I'm sitting in a Starbucks right now doing some catching up on emails. GUESS WHAT! its not FLOWING! its creating more frustration. its time to get away from the screen and connect with the Mother, the EARTH and reach out and touch someone's life in a deep and profound way.  I so often think I don't have a space in this world
wanted to share some support from Madaline Avon:

A way to make up for the lack of security we feel so deeply: 'I am not safe in this world', 'I don't have a space in this world', 'this world cannot contain me'.

First, feel into this insecurity and experience it fully. Feel where in your body the emotion is strongest. Put a hand over this place on your body and simply breath into that area.
Then, when you feel ready, begin to change your old belief with a mantra such as this one: 'My presence on this Earth is Divinely orchestrated. Simply because of my Being, my presence and contribution give profound and exceptional blessings to this world and the people in it. I am home.'

Practicing patience

I am grateful for smooth bus connections to get me to the 534 bus that got me to Malibu. I had $9.75 in cash. A day pass is $7, its 75 cents extra to ride on the freeway.  I was definitely living on the edge. Its worth it to get to the coast. Debit cards don't take you places. Its good to get out of the thick of the city.


There are days, weeks I haven't posted. Do my ideas matter? are they important? can I humbly trust in what I have to share is worthwhile, much needed, and please do share. People want to hear. Salivating to hear, maybe not. As I wrote out my gratitude list, I said I AM GRATEFUL for Abundant time to meditate, be of service and choose what I WANT to do. DO I do what brings me joy? not always. I'm grateful for my momentary friendships. Lets live in the romance of the moment!
