On Easter morning we wanted to indulge in a luxuriously self-indulgent, yet easy brunch to celebrate the holiday with our family, celebrating also Animal Communication Week with Anna Brayetenback and John Young and least but not last: my 43 years birthday and the fact that I'm still alive, after a rough passed year with a very bad illness, thank to changing my habits, slowing down and learning how taking care of myself... mostly througt living food!!
The food that’s sold in grocery stores and the vast majority of restaurants today is higher in processed ingredients, sugar, and flour. Most of us get the fact that processed foods are not nutritious, but fruits and vegetables are not as nutritious as they once were either because they have been altered through hybridization of plants, genetic modification of organisms and the modern industrial farming practices of adding chemicals and toxic pesticides in amounts we’ve never seen before. All this is driving our chronic disease epidemic and harming the environment.
Eating cruelty-free, gluten&sugar free might seem a bit tricky around the holidays, but with a little bit of menu planning we could whip up a tasty Easter meal that’s sure to please. This Easter bruch menu we created focuses on what I think is the best part of a healthy diet to contribute at the best for the Planet: local delicious fruits & vegetables, starches, herbs.
Each one of us is made of body, mind, emotion and spirit and we cannot separate the body from the mind, emotions or spirit. Like most modern illnesses with modern day symptoms such fatigue, depression, aching joints and muscles, migraines, asthma, lupus, different types bowel diseases, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, cancers, the causes are often complex and are of a variety of origins including the spirit, mind and emotions.
I can seen around more and more food intolerances and allergies, people never experience before. I believe as we grow more spiritual, more we are sensitive to everything around us. Our body will tell us what it can no longer tolerate, as if it, too, is sloughing off what doesn't serve it anymore.
Each of us is a spirit experiencing a human life. You can take your emotions out and look at them, you can take your thoughts out and look at them, you can experience many physical feelings or sensations, but you cannot take your spirit out and look at it. It is what you come into life with and what is ongoing after you have died. Spirit is the center of your soul and is the very essence of you that goes on forever.
We tend to compartmentalize the cause of illness. Books and articles are written today about body/ mind/nature connection, our emotions, or just our bodies. Little is written about us as spirits in a way that helps us understand that we are spirit.
There are many schools of thought on the relationship of body, mind, emotions and spirit. Certain people claim that you can eliminate all physical illness by adjusting your emotions and thinking. Others believe that you can heal all your physical difficulties with your mind and intention without any change in your emotional or spiritual lives.
I don't know really. I just have my way of feeling integration between my spiritual and my incarnational journey, and it's my own learning.
However and whatever we believe we are integrated beings and need to address all aspects including physical emotional, mental/intellectual and spiritual needs to have long-term vibrant health.
Few today write about how we are spirits living a human experience. As human beings we have the need to nourish our spirit selves as well as our physical, emotional, and mental/intellectual selves, to be able to maintain an excellent health.
Each could find its own way to connect with that power. And then find a way to worship this power and go there for guidance and strength.
This is as essential as eating good organic food, eliminating all parasites and candida, cleansing out buried emotions, and revitalizing our minds (which exist in our auras or energetic fields) and our brains. All of this is required for long-term vibrant health. This what we are trying to do right now in Findhorn.
