White flour is a HUGE culprit for triggering inflammation in the body. If you struggle with arthritis or any inflammatory issue, white flour is the first thing that should be thrown out of your diet. Even if you do not have any condition that is inflammatory, white flour STILL will trigger an inflammatory response in the body.
A better option can be Ezekiel Bread, made of sprouts instead of processed flour of any kind. Since there is nothing that preserves the bread it has to be kept in the freezer. Just take out what you need, toast it, and put on some almond butter, vegan butter, or create a sandwich after it has thawed.
Just a heads up here. It won’t taste like processed bread! That’s because there is no added processed sugars to create a sugar imbalance in your body. Yes, it will taste different. After using it you will adjust to not having sugar in your bread!
If bread is supposed to be the staff of life, why put processed ingredients in it that will cause adverse issues in your body? Let your bread accentuate your life and not take away from it!
I enjoy my life. I have the things I desire but when I can, I eat the things that will be more beneficial to me!
When I was growing up, the big thing during the summer was to get a tan. The commercials started rolling in toward the end of spring to get that “Coppertone” tan. Many of us felt we had to buy that product and sit and bake in the sun. After many years I can see how ridiculous that was since I have had to deal with skin cancer due to my teenaged baking sprees.
The irony of the whole “tan thing” was I am a female with very light skin; always have been. My teen years were during times of substantial racial unrest, integration, and opposition. Yet, if I was too white without a tan, I was made fun of. This made no sense to me then, and it makes no sense to me now. I even had a man who lived nearby as I raised my children who insisted I looked sickly and needed to go to the doctor because I was too white. He was of Hispanic descent.
Are racial disputes and struggles really about skin color or lack of privilege? When I look back on my life, I don’t recall any type of privilege, but I do remember a whole lot of disapproval no matter what I did. If I had a tan, I was “trying too hard to be darker.” If I had no tan, I was “too white.”
The same has always been true of whatever body shape I had. If I lost too much weight, I was too thin. If I gained weight, comments shot at me that it was apparent I was gaining weight. If I dyed my hair lighter, I was trying to “be like Barbie.” An in-law used to call me Barbie. How disturbing is that?
Since I wore make-up, my eyelashes were too long. I’ve always had long eyelashes. I get them from my father! Those who wore no make-up had their own opinions of me, and those who did felt competition. There never was any competition on my end. I only wanted to be myself.
If I excelled in the workplace, I was snubbed by some who thought, “I must have done something with someone to get where I was.” Could I just have been ambitious and intelligent? If that was the case, isn’t that alright? When I excelled in school, I was a “teacher’s pet.” Really? In all honesty, there were very few teachers or professors I ever truly appreciated.
Sometimes at dances, I was too short and sometimes not short enough. That depended on who I was dancing with. Or maybe I wouldn’t say I liked the right music or the right clothing. As I got older, either my rear end was too big or too small. I think you get the picture. Let’s face it; we live in a world of those who make judgments according to their own lenses. We see this every day in magazines and movies. Especially women are “told” what acceptable is, and if we fall short of that, we feel unacceptable. Even worse, unaccepted. Oh, it does happen with men as well, but women more for some reason. Maybe it seems that way because I am a female, so don’t quote me on that one!
Acceptance is a genuine human need and desire. We all want that. We are the same in that respect. Here is the bottom line and advice on how to get along in a world that looks at us through its own lens. First of all, realize that everyone has their own lens because they have their own hurts, programmed standards, and prejudices. Yes, I used the “p” word, “prejudice.” Prejudging comes from what we have learned through time. We are not born with prejudicial standards. We learn them from others. We accept them out of our need to be accepted.
Secondly, we attract who we are. If we want acceptance, we need to accept ourselves with no input from anyone else. This can be hard because it means un-programming all of those things we have been pre-programmed with. Loving ourselves unconditionally helps attract unconditional love and acceptance. Loving ourselves might take some healing work because of the scars developed from rejection and prejudices.
Remember also, we all are in the same boat. We all know what it is like to be rejected by someone at some point in time. Shouldn’t this give us more compassion and not less? It all takes time and inner work. Sometimes I still think I am too fat, too white, too blonde, too intelligent, too emotional, too sensitive, too everything. The truth is I am not “too anything.” I am just me, and that should be fine with me. I hope being just you will come to be okay for yourself.
Be proud of who you are, and don’t let that go. It is alright to be confident, intelligent, sensitive, compassionate, and accepting. Above all else, be unconditionally loving to yourself and work on being that for others as well. It’s a process and one that might take patience, but we gain endurance for the ride with patience. (Or at least I have read!)
Whatever you can dream of, you can create in reality. Manifesting dreams and desires is so much fun! We are powerful creators just like the God who created us! Gratitude is one of the most powerful feelings as a part of love. Before you can manifest anything, you need to be grateful for what you have and for what you are creating in your life.
Remember your powers. They are gratitude, forgiveness, love, mercy, grace, and charity (sowing and reaping). Embody these things and all else is easy. We have a God who WANTS us to be fruitful and multiply. I have no idea why so many feel guilty about creating in life, or that it is wrong. When done so with an honest heartfelt intention, creating is what life is all about.
We are always creating. All any of us need to do is decide what we want to create instead of leaving things to chance. Here is a guided meditation video (no music) for manifesting and creating your dreams and visions. I hope you enjoy it often! Make your creation REAL and post in the comments area what you would like to manifest in your life! Then get to it! (I’m going to post mine in the comments area!)
We all know that gut feeling when something is wrong. We feel it deep inside our stomach, and it won’t let up until we heed its message. If we let it continue by not “listening,” we go through the outer issue from which those feelings came. It’s all a learning experience, and quite often, it’s a hard lesson.
According to an article on Healthline, we have a connection between our brain and gut. Therefore we experience sickening feelings or other issues when something is wrong. Intuitively we can experience the same thing coming from our superconscious mind or higher self. We have our conscious mindfulness that operates in the now moment as our human experience. We also have our subconscious mind that feeds into our lives, whatever is programmed there. Our subconscious mind operates without emotion and reflects the experiences we picked up along the way. The superconscious mind is connected as our higher self and taps into the extraordinary wisdom and glory of the universe and God.
Our soul is healed and nurtured by the superconscious mind if we allow it and seek it. Since the power and light of God run through us, we can tap into wisdom, knowledge, intuition, and guidance through seeking inside of ourselves. Wisdom can be received in any situation, but usually, the knowledge we receive comes quickly and feels like gut intuition. We are empowered when we step back, reflect, and redirect ourselves. Observing for a while will reveal more truth about ourselves and life if we give it a chance and seek it.
Many people recoil when the word “psychic” comes up. This word means “soul knowledge.” Psychology comes from the same idea as the study of soul information and understanding. Practicing soul knowledge is very helpful if we desire to live an empowered life. Being empowered can begin with nurturing intuition by following our gut advice. I’m sure most have heard the expression “practice makes perfect.” We perfect our abilities by practicing daily.
Meditating on sensing when we have that gut intuition and programming ourselves to act upon what we sense is a good place to begin. It takes practice, but intuition is natural and comes very easily. Once we have the hang of it and learn to trust ourselves, no one can refute what our feelings are speaking to us when they come up.

We all identify ourselves in different ways because we are all uniquely fashioned. One way we often identify ourselves is through the lens of others, or by what we do, instead of who we are. Many of us do not even consider who we truly are. There is a stamp of authenticity upon you and chances are you have NO idea what that means!
Have you ever sought out your true self? Have you ever presented your authentic self to the rest of the world and considered what that means for your life? Many have not. Yet, we have an authentic self hidden inside of us and buried under a lot of junk we have accumulated along the way.
Here are two videos and some photos I am attaching to this post. In the videos I discuss authenticity and some of my story about when I lost it ALL to discover EVERYTHING! What will you discover?
The photos go with the story in the videos. I hope you enjoy the message!
We all have choices in life as to what we do and choose our way of being. I like to consider myself as someone who is always in the state of becoming. That way my options for renewal are always open. Our lives shift, we shift, and we grow. At least that is what we are supposed to do!
Along with our growth comes additions, subtractions, and reflections on new things. More or less, out with the old and in with the new! I believe our ultimate goal is service, no matter what form it takes. My places of service are with my business, my blog, and my YouTube channel. Wherever I land, I consider myself unique and always evolving.

Ever since I was a little girl I was told by teachers and parents I should write. It did not matter whether my writing was poetry, a book, or a newsletter, it seemed important for me to communicate in writing. For the last six years my writing has been through my blog.
Many years ago I wrote and submitted to magazines. I ended up the editor of a spiritual publication. One of my biggest suggestions is to write “that book” that everyone seems to think, or believe, is “in me”. Believe me, I am considering it!
I love giving my readers the best information I can obtain. Most often my writing gives personal, spiritual and mindful advice. I’d like to think I have an inner advisor! Regardless to what venue I use to pass on information I also believe the information is worth its weight in gold.
There are a few ways to support my efforts. One way is to use my services as an empowerment coach and hypnotherapist! Another way is to use the businesses I am affiliated with or subscribe to. One of them is Avon.
For over 132 years Avon has been an icon in the beauty industry but the company is so much more than that! There are so many new options from cleaners to clothing and more! Please consider becoming a patron on my Avon site! I would love to have you and it is a great way to support my writing and business endeavors!
In the mean time, hold on to your hat. I might just announce “that book” is officially in process in due time!
We have all had those moments in life when we are reaching for something new but have no idea what that might be or look like. Or sometimes we just need some wisdom for new decisions. Regardless of the reason there are seasons we go through where we are divinely seeking.

If you need some new information in your life or answers to some pressing questions then this meditation video is just for YOU! I ask God bless you with all you need, want, and desire!
