The likely question that rises is, why blog? Why write a blog on health, nutrition and living-large, when so many others already exist?
For me, there really is only one reason. I have a “fire-in-my-belly” to share what I feel deep in my bones to be true about living “our” most vibrant, healthy selves. No doubt it was a long journey ‘round to get here, and that is what I believe will enrich all that I have to offer. You should know though, that my thoughts about “what I know” are deeply rooted in my firm belief that you already intuitively know everything and anything you will ever need to know. No one really is “our” teacher. Others show up in our lives to point the way, to simply remind us of who we truly are, to help us find our way back to our most authentic, truest selves. Ultimately then, my goal is to offer up new ideas, suggestions and practices that will lead you back to being your most healthy, vibrant, gorgeous, beautiful, powerful self!
Vital point: Nourishment occurs in many ways. So I will include all sorts of ideas, from all sorts of arenas, like music and success, like acid-alkaline balance and deep breathing, like self-discipline and self-love, like meditation and physical fitness. My bottom-line though is, we really need to get that we are bio-chemical beings, and that our food choices can and surely do, fuel us, or deplete us. Yup, you know it! Think about it, some days we are just a pure lover. Life is easy and fun and a glorious ride. And some days, well, shall I say, some days we feel crazy. We are out of sorts. Everything is a struggle. Everything is hard. Nothing seems to work. Yes. We even get sick… with illness and disease Why is this? It IS because we have forgotten that in our most truest nature, while hear on planet Earth, we are a body, and our body is a network of nerve impulses, a network of electrical actions and reactions and… what we eat has everything to do with everything else! Everything.
So while my blog will center on all sorts of ideas about living and being your most vibrant, gorgeous healthy self, everything will radiate out from the central point of why I am here: I believe that our food choices are transformative. I have learned, no-joke, that within our food choices awaits the “kingdom of heaven,” in whatever way that exists for you. Think about it, how can we look gorgeous? How can we access our most powerful, authentic, vibrant selves in a lasting way, indeed, how can any of our bodily functions work optimally, like thinking and digesting, if we live in a way that negates our very bio-physical essence?
I request only one thing of you as you journey along with me here, hold very close Copernicus’ counsel to us all oh-so-many years ago, “To know that we know what we know, and to know that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.” For me, he is saying that true wisdom rises when we remain open to new ideas. Especially ideas that seem foreign, not our usual way of doing things. Yes, ideas that may feel even down-right uncomfortable at first. Try some new things out. Give a new way of doing things a chance to percolate and grow within your daily practices, and before you know it… this “once new, seemingly crazy idea” that you were once resistant too, now is part of your everyday routine. The only difference is, you now feel energized. You now feel excited and confident. You now think clearly and look gorgeous. You now feel free to express yourself, your most authentic self, in all the ways that you know you were always meant to be!
