Follow Your Heart Living

This video is so inspiring.  It is a medicine woman who has constructed her ideal home herself and living her heart life.  Please watch it as it really makes you think about creating alternative choices in life.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evsu9NOo4hQ

It makes me think about life even more.  Recently my mum passed away of heart failure at the age of 95 years.  It is something that makes everything in your world upside down and you have to re-evaluate your life and everything you hold dear in the process.

I have been looking at various youtube videos for a while and realise that I often look at Tiny Houses, different lifestyles and things that are unique.  I am pondering my own living.

When life throws you lemons you can make lemonade as they say, or you can go sour and forget to put the sugar in.  I choose the sweetness of life.

As a part of this choice I have decided to walk more everyday; to not sweat the small stuff and of course to be grateful for everything I already have.

That is a key to living a heart life.  Know you are doing what you love and if you aren’t, change it.  You are empowered to change in the connection to yourself.  It is expected don’t you think to explore your own self deeply until you find a fit.

So I hope you find a great fit for yourself in your life choices.

Namaste and blessings.  I am turning off the computer and going for a walk in the forest to talk to nature, God and the spirit of my parents passed.

love and light

WHAT DOES BURNOUT LOOK LIKE?

Burnout looks like this.


Lol

Really though, burnout looks like this…..


Burnout is when you just can’t go on.  thinking, being, knowing, continuing, sleeping, being awake, talking, answering questions, pretending.

If you are experiencing burnout, one of the hardest things to do is to step off the treadmill but it is the thing you need to force yourself to do the most.  The consequences of burnout are breakdown.  Emotional/physical/spiritual/energetic breakdown.

Some strategies to counter burnout are:

Remembering it isn’t going to be the end of the world if you change the status quo.

People will respond to you how you expect them to sub-consciously so take some time to meditate and be alone to evaluate what you really want in your environment.

Rest, even if it means laying down for twenty minutes or turning off the devices!

Do not answer the phone, the email or the door for a mandatory half hour period every day.

Be kind to yourself first.

Eat well and drink plenty of water.

Watch a funny movie and don’t pay yourself out for the downtime.  

Read a book, do a self-hypnosis, get a massage.

Remember the key to avoiding burnout is to recognise patterns that need changing and do one thing at a time to change them.  If you try to throw the baby and the bathwater out at the same time you have probably already burned out.

Take magnesium, zinc and B vitamins to help you help your nervous system and body to cope.

STOP for a bit!

I hope this helps you.  You are allowed to be yourself.  That is why you were put on this Earth in the first place.  It is all about self love and acceptance not work, worry and strain incorporating stress.

Please if you haven’t already, get this hypnosis track and relax!!!!!!  Please look after yourself.  You deserve it.  It isn’t only your car that needs servicing.

WHEN THE WIND IS BLOWING FROM THE INSIDE

Image may contain: one or more people and text
Photo courtesy of facebook……I laughed a lot.

When the wind is blowing from the inside it is called flatulence!  That is the polite term.
Gas builds up in the intestines and bowel and if your gas can’t go up and out as a burp it will travel past that half way mark and come down as flatulence.
How many times don’t we have issues around “breaking wind, farting, letting one go!”

Seriously so many funny antics and embarrassing moments happen around flatulence, which is a normal part of digestion.   When you have fibres which ferment or sugars hitting an inflamed area of the bowel,  dairy intolerance and many other healthy and unhealthy conditions, the production of extra gas in the digestive system will result.

Gas can come from how your body tackles the last baked bean consumption or tacos,  (those older ones of us might remember the movie “Blazing Saddles” from the 1970s dedicated to the topic in a comedic way.
Gas comes when inflamation is present and the sugars in food make it ferment like ginger beer does when you add sugar to it.  Large bubbles of wind swell and this can be painful, leading to cramps and extreme wind pains.

Farting is healthy actually.  The average healthy human breaks wind from the anus approximately 14 times a day!
Sometimes you can’t help it and it can be a literal pain in the ass of social occasions, especially as women tend to try to hide this need to pass wind and will hold it in till they have stomach pains.  Then they will find a secret place to allow it to pass, hoping not to be heard or smelt.   Oh dear!

Most men make a competition of it in social situations, cracking up laughing when someone does it and seeing if they can beat them.  Just like burping.  Oh dear polite company excluded of course.  I am not sure if I am speaking only of the Australian bbq scene lol but I am sure that is a worldwide trend.

In some countries it is considered polite to burp as a copliment for good food.   Flatulence less so.

In the Oknolwgloonkwa culture of Northeastern Chad, a polite male guest is expected to fart freely at dinner.
If one does not produce several healthy, frangrant farts at the table the host worries that you are not having a good enough time.

So the next time you are worried about having a build of wind, consider migration lol.

DOMESTIC RECYCLING AND HOW TO DO IT BETTER

“To recycle your waste is to help the planet.  We don’t always know how to successfully recycle and I found a great article on it for you.  My son told me last week how frustrating it can be for recyclers when tubs etc are not washed out thoroughly and he is concerned when we recycle that we get it right. I think this is a great thing about this younger generation, in that they are the generation really working with this concept probably more than others.  They have been born into it and therefore also inherited our messed up planetary pollution and waste issues.  So to prosper our thought patterns and assist in the greater good I went seeking for a great article which is informative and will assist you to recycle well.  Here it is.”

“War on Waste: Recycling and why you’re almost certainly wasting your time rinsing it

OPINION
The Conversation
By Trevor Thornton

Posted Mon at 6:49am

Plastic bottlesPHOTO: Your bottles and cans don’t have to be sparkling clean to go in the recycling bin. (Pixabay)
RELATED STORY: What plastics can you recycle?
MAP: Australia

Once a fortnight we diligently wheel our recycling bin to the kerb, and then probably give ourselves a pat on the back while thinking of all the useful products we have helped to create, and the resources and energy we have saved.

Yet it pays to think a bit more deeply about what is going into each bin.

Audits of kerbside collections have shown that around 10 per cent (by volume) of the material placed in kerbside recycling bins should not be there.

The most common “contamination” items include plastic bags (both full and empty), textiles, green waste, polystyrene (styrofoam) and general rubbish.

The problem cuts the other way too. Around a third of landfill waste bins routinely contain recyclables or green waste.

How many of us actually know where the contents of our recycling bin go, who manages it, and how the various materials are separated?

This knowledge is a crucial element in reducing contamination and improving our recycling industry.

Bin information

2005 report found 48 per cent of Australians were confused about what could and could not be recycled, not least because the rules and practices differ between local governments and commercial operators, and between households and workplaces.

For household recycling, we generally receive an annual flyer from the council telling us what should and should not go in the recycling bin.

How can you reduce plastic?


Here are some tips to help you reduce the amount of plastic you use.

But there is typically little or no feedback on whether we’re getting it right.

By way of example, ask yourself (and your friends) how much time you spend rinsing out tins, yoghurt pots and other food containers before throwing them in the recycling.

The truth is that you don’t have to do this at all, because today’s recycling systems can easily cope with the levels of food often found in or on these containers.

Yet many householders still do it, either because they were never told it was unnecessary, or because they were given the information but didn’t read it.

Meanwhile, we waste water, energy and time rinsing our recycling.

Where’s the info?

A recent confidential report compiled for four regional councils in Victoria found that only 29 per cent of householders had ever looked at a council website for information about recycling.

Most respondents said they got their information from schools, local newspapers and bin stickers.

It is important to have clear information from the right source about which items can and can’t be recycled.

One example is plastic shopping bags, which many supermarkets urge their customers to recycle by placing them in dedicated bins on the shop premises.

But this might prompt shoppers to think that plastic bags can be recycled in their kerbside collection too, which is typically not the case.

And, as we saw above, relatively few householders check their local council’s website for the right information.

Plastic bags are just one of the common contaminants in the recycling stream that result in large volumes of recyclables being rejected and disposed of in landfill.

This comes at a cost to the council, and therefore to us.

Many items can be recycled, given the right equipment. To persist with the plastic bag example, these require a machine that can separate them from the rest of the waste stream.

But this doesn’t work for full plastic bags, regardless of whether they contain rubbish or other recyclables.

Full bags go straight to landfill because it is too laborious to empty them, and in some cases (such as when they contain nappies) doing so poses a health risk for workers at the recycling facility.

A little consumer knowledge goes a long way — both in improving the efficiency of our recycling systems and in increasing the motivation of householders who know they’re helping to make life easier for those who process their recycling.

Disposables vs reusables

We must also have a good think, not just about the items we put in the recycling, but about which products we choose to use in the first place.

Although we are bombarded with messages about reducing our use of disposable items, in some cases disposable is actually better.

It takes 1,006 uses for a keep cup to be more environmentally friendly than a polystyrene one.PHOTO: It’s better to rewash and reuse ceramics instead of using polystyrene cups … but only after 1,006 uses. (Flickr: Shadowfoot, CC BY-NC-SA 2.0)

One study found that a ceramic cup would need to be used at least 39 times to be a better option than paper disposable cups, and 1,006 times when compared with a styrofoam one.

A plastic reusable cup would need to be washed at least 17 times to be more sustainable than paper disposable ones, and 450 times when compared with styrofoam.

So if you’re prone to losing or breaking things (or just collecting too many reusable cups!), then it might be wise to consider going disposable (or being more careful).

Then comes the issue of whether and how these disposable cups can be recycled. Most outlets now use paper rather than styrofoam cups.

While the plastic lid can be recycled, in most instances the cup cannot as there is a film of a plastic waterproof material inside it.

A good plan is to ask whether your favourite café stocks cups that can be recycled. If so, encourage them to put up a sign (if they haven’t already) indicating that they use fully recyclable cups, to avoid confusion.

The key to all of this is knowledge and balance — that is, after all, what sustainability is all about.

SCIENCE DISCOVERS TIME CRYSTALS


I have taken an extract from a scientific article where it is now proven there are Time Crystals.

What are these?  They are a new state of matter that we can create. This has been discovered.

Early in 2017 physicists had put together a blueprint for how to make and measure time crystals – a bizarre state of matter with an atomic structure that repeats not just in space, but in time, allowing them to maintain constant oscillation without energy.

Rather than confuse you with my own interpretation I have included a great link below which explains all about it.  It is fascinating.

OCEAN POLLUTION

We are responsible for the oceans but we defile and desicrate.  I can’t forget Oprah dropping her mobile phone off a tourist boat in the Great Barrier Reef that I was told about.  Really we are all responsible in a real sense for the many disasters society and our rubbish are causing.  We pollute the oceans and without them the ecosystem of the Earth’s very breath dies.

Please be responsible for your clutter, recycling, plastic bags when you shop, debris you leave lying at the beach.  So many items and things humans create end up in the oceans.  Want some proof of this?

Here is an article written by greenpeace which shows you the contents of the stomach of a dead whale beached.  You would be disgusted to see what this poor creature ingested and why it died.

Please remember to respect our Earth in all ways and be prepared for the cosequences of neglect.  It really is serious.  Global warming,  pollution and weather all create effects for the creatures of the land and the sea.  We seem to be doing even more damage to the ecosystem than we suspect.

BEING DISSATISFIED CAN BE RIDICULOUS

In this day and age of receiving plenty of stimulus. we can perhaps become dissatisfied and picky if things aren’t provided perfectly to our spoiled inner child senses.  Do you sometimes concentrate on the trivial?

What happens if you decide you don’t like something which is provided for you?  What happens if you feel you wanted more than you received?  Are you grateful for the little things?  Are you incredulous and spoiled about perfecting your wants instead of your needs?  I found an article which specified some of those types of innane complaints by people who really don’t get how to have adventure and explore responsibility for your own thoughts and actions.

Do you think everything has to be handed to you before you can feel you have received enough.

Sometimes roughing it and doing something differently is a great adventure and journey of gratitude.  Love in the little things.    Here are some actual complaints received by a cruise line on their services.  It makes you think about expectations and reality of life in a different way.

Remember be grateful and appreciative and life will bring you abundance without the winge and dissatisfaction of a mind unsatisfied.

THESE ARE REAL COMPLAINTS RECEIVED BY “THOMAS COOK HOLIDAYS” FROM DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS
 

1. “On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.”

2. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.”

3. “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.”

4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.”

5. “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”

6. “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”

7. “It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallartato close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time — this should be banned.”

8. “No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared.”

9. “Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers.”

10. “I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.”

11. “The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun.”

12. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair.”

13. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends’ three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller.”

14. “The brochure stated: ‘No hairdressers at the resort.’ We’re trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service.”

15. “When we were in Spain, there were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners.”

16. “We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning.”

17. “It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel.”

18. “I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes.”

19. “My fiancée and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we were placed in a room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and want to be re-reimbursed for the fact that I became pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked.”

THE SOUND OF SILENCE

Bring on the sounds of silence.  Beautiful restful nothingness.  Peaceful contemplation devoid of mind chatter.  A mental holiday.   The sound of zen in action.  The nothingness of spiritual existence which is the all and the everything combined with the nuances of silence and matter in chaos.

What a concept is silence!
No automatic alt text available.
We never really hear it unless we are in meditation.  Why?  Because in all places there are frequencies, noises, people, cars, electromagnetic frequency waves, tvs, neighbours, clatter and hum.

To be in silence is to be inside your inner knowing with a sense of completeness.  This involves a journey into the core of the being.  To really journey into yourself without hearing the outside world and its demands and din, you need to be prepared to disassociate completely.

Even as you do this you will find your mind trying to bring to back to “reality” as you see it.  Mastership of zen contemplation takes time and is a gift to your consciousness and your peace of mind.

Practice silence.  Even if there is noise about you can do this.  Practice dissassociation of all your senses.  Imagine yourself somewhere away from the current environment in a peaceful space of clouds and air.  Let your mind wander to explore the new clouds and air and as you breathe make this the only sound you hear.  Let your flow of energy expand around you so you create your own consciousness buffer zone, where the outside world doesn’t exist.

Just breathing and listening to the breathe can eventually take you to a place of dreams and dissassociation from the surroundings.

To hear the sounds of silence you have to go after your own peace of mind.  But not in the actively moving sense.  In the sense that you know you are nothing, silence, peace and prosperity, calm and serenity and as you know it nothing else intrudes nor matters.  This is mastership of a different kind.  It is mastership of the silence within.  Then you are closest to God, source and the inner core where all divinity prospers.
