On Gratitude

Gratitude places you in the energy field of plenitude.
Perceiving life
in a consciousness of gratitude
is literally stepping into another dimension of living.
Suddenly the seeming ordinariness of your days
takes on a divine sparkle.

On Castrophe

Catastrophe
is the essence of the spiritual path,
a series of breakdowns allowing us to discover
the threads
that weave all of life into a whole cloth.

Remember Ask Beth? Well, Here’s Ask Skai…

ASK SKAI!!

Hi…Im having a really hard time balancing everything work,kids,diet,exercise, inner peace etc…I try meditating but can never fully clear my mind…any suggestions?

<><><>

Same here! I guess what I work on is slowing down constantly…Im a runner…not physically..ha! But mentally. My mind does marathons daily…and I never put myself to sleep…I DROP asleep!

The biggest thing that has helped me was changing my entire environment. I had to get out of the rat race and move to Puerto Rico to slow my mind down. I am here and things have gotten super better for me. I am more calm, concerned, caring then I have EVER been in my life. I am a better parent too! I work with food daily so working on getting my addictions curbed are still a battle but I realize the less I stress about it the less it affects me. Still a work in progress.

For you, I would say take the road of least resistance. Not everyone can pack up and move to an island in the Caribbean. And really moving doesn’t remove the mental issues that we all fight with.

However, removing those things that block you from your highest intentions allows you to work on the things that are your highest priorities.

Removing things like negative people or energy vampires, junk food, TV, Social Media, and jobs that suck…are super important.

Onion Feat

Raw ONION on bottom of the feet to take away illness.

”During the night, I started feeling good. I mean really good! I felt tingly, like my blood was being cleansed (it was). It was so cool!
My bedroom smells like a casserole, but it was totally worth it!

***Here is the deal:::
So last night Evan (11) was keeping everyone awake with his cough. I got up, went to the kitchen and sliced a purple, make me cry onion, at 3am. I got some snug socks and put it on the bottom of his feet. To boost my own immunity, I decided to try this too. During the rest of the night, I started feeling good. I mean really good! I felt tingly, like my blood was being cleansed. It was so cool!

This works in 2 ways.
1.) Onions are known to absorb toxins. In fact, during the days of the Plague in England, folks would keep chopped onions around to absorb toxins and clean the air. This helped protect them, against getting the plague.

NEVER SAVE AN ONION. It will absorb all the toxins in the air of your refrigerator. Eat that and you eat the toxins. Instead: Chop your left over onion, put it on a plate and keep it in your kitchen as a natural air purifier. I do this all the time! If someone is ill, place a chopped onion on the night stand, next to the bed. They’ll be better in the morning. I placed the remaining onion, next to Evan last night.

Onions are toxin absorbers. Thus why they are great internal mops for the body. Eat plenty of onions!

2.) The onion and garlic families are anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. Placing them on the bottom of the foot gives them access to your internal organs through meridians in your body. The onion can be directly delivered. Transdermal delivery (on the skin) is one of the best delivery mechanisms, as it will bypass the stomach acids and go directly into the blood. The bottom of the feet and the forearm are great places to put high powered foods and essential oils into the body. Sliced garlic on the bottom of the feet will work nicely too.”

A Lesson On Living Racism

I Never Thought I’d Want To High-Five A Teacher For Yelling At A Student, But I Was Wrong

Posted by Laura Willard

I know this is on the long-ish side, but I promise that there’s a really valuable message here that makes it worth watching all the way through.

Jane Elliot is a teacher and diversity trainer who developed the “Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes” exercise to teach students what it feels like to be a person of color. This video begins pretty abruptly, where one of the students who’s been singled out based on eye color is extremely frustrated.

At 2:46, Elliot explains why she keeps going even after she’s made the point. At 3:35, she delivers an important message. And at 10:05, you may laugh a little, but I think you’ll really get it.

Many years ago, I could have been the girl who walked out, not understanding how this feels to the people it affects. I’m glad that’s no longer the case.

A partial transcript from a very powerful portion of the video, beginning at 3:19:

Elliot: “No. You don’t come back in here until you’ve apologized to every person in this room because you just exercised a freedom that none of these people of color have. When these people of color get tired of racism, they can’t just walk out because there’s no place in this country where they aren’t going to be exposed to racism. They can’t even stay in their own homes and not be exposed to racism if they turn on their television. But you, as a white female, when you get tired of being judged and treated unfairly on the basis of your eye color, you can walk out that door, and you know it won’t happen out there. You exercised a freedom they don’t have. If you’re going to be in here, you’re going to apologize to every black person in this room. And do it now … and every person of color.”

Student: “I’m sorry there’s racism in this country…”

Elliot: “Bullshit! No, you’re not going to say ‘I’m sorry there’s racism.’ You’re going to apologize for what you just did.”

Student: “I will not apologize because it’s not a matter of race always…”

Elliot: “Out.”

WTH: “I’m sorry, but it was up to the gays to tell us.”

Gouverner of Arizona boro-arizona“Quite frankly, we were blindsided by this.
We had no idea that gays had money and bought things.”

Joanne Bryant shared a link via Piper Mejia.
I want to know too…with people like this in power, how on earth did America get anywhere ????

According to this dumbarse woman:

“How was I supposed to know what gay people do with their money, etc., when I don’t personally know any gay people?” she asked.
“I’m sorry, but it was up to the gays to tell us.”
