Fixing My Life: Start With Food! #EMPOWER CONNECT SHARE

Who is the Farmer? Is it Processed Food? WTF, the time has come!

This week has been all about getting down and dirty: building virtual relationships, being nonjudgmental, being empathetic, being nonjudgmental, and getting out of my own way. Just to share the last post on Wednesday to empathize with others who cannot get out of their own way either! But now let’s put some ACTION RATHER THAN WORDS out there. How can we become ACTION oriented: we can look at how we take care of ourselves starting with food.

No, this is not really how to eat or how to diet. Acting on the food in our lives can bring many good results including hope and possibility to each of us. Food is always needed, but we need to be actively looking at what we are eating. Really, who raised it, where did it come from? Reently I read an attributed line in Dr. Mark Hyman’s book FOOD FIX that went something like this: Where are you going to leave your one grain of spiritual sand on the universal scales of humanity?

Did you ever think that FOOD can restore ecosystems, build soil, protect our water resources, reduce pollution, increase biodiversity, and reverse climate change? But only if it is a redemptive food system. Yes, we can change our food system to change the world. And we can do it one by one. It i something we can do. Now this is ACTION!

Ok, here we go. I have not seen any correlation between our diets and COVID 19, our current pandemic. “Current”, yes, because the world cannot continue in the self destructive ways we have reached right now. Yes, there are many who are personally addressing these issues, but it is always surprising to see the grocery carts of so many others today. We are a sick society! We are suffering from water so expensive many cannot afford it, pesticide poisoning, processed food no one understands the labeling, and more!

A long time ago, I began overhauling my diet to become more and more plant based. I am not 100% there, but I now eat plant-rich (no longer plant-based), I am easy on fruit, I use healthy fats, I love nuts and seeds, I choose pasture-raised eggs, and I eat beans, and fish are becoming more and more suspect. Why am I sharing? Because it is my belief that our health begins with our food. Some day some one will look at the COVID 19 phenomenon and may see that this pandemic did affect those whose health was compromised and poor food choices can compromise anyone’s health! ACTION can begin with the fuel for all of our bodies: We can get out of our own way by making sure what we eat will not harm us now or in the future!

The Secret Within Us Is “Balance”

9D319F0D-5064-4ADD-8720-C848D1E6CE06

We are always seeking “balance” in money, food, politics, family, friends, and more.  Trying to find what is right for us all the while being told what everyone thinks is right for us.  It surrounds us in all of the media—printed, electronic, and social.  There are those who say the media makes up the news.  Do they?  Is what we hear real or “fake”?  Is what we read the truth?  After years of exposure to everyone else, how can we find our “personal” balance?  How do we express more of ourself when sometimes we cannot find our “person”?

There is an answer.  It is not easy.  It depends how far “down the rabbit hole” we have gone.  We may not know how we feel about “family”.  We may not know how we feel about “friends”.  In this era of Trump, we may be totally torn about “politics”.  “Food” is a battlefield of good, bad, and more.  And we don’t have a clue about “money”!

The answer is finding your intuition…if you even know what it is.

“intuition” is the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence or conscious reasoning, or without any understanding how we learned it.  Intuition begins with the native knowledge we are born with.  We react to being wet, hungry or tired.  But all gets murky when we begin interacting with our environment, and that includes family, friends, politics, food, and eventually money!

If we can find our foundation in intuition, then we can begin to rebuild and eventually find our balance in all areas.  “Balance” means listening to what we learn from our environment and taking what is pertinent to each of us personally and allowing it to become a part of our being.  It is not easy.  And that is why I chose it as this week’s topic.  So many of us are so conflicted, but all is not lost.  Finding your intuition is necessarily selfish, but you must be selfish.  This is your life.  It is the only one you have.

Now, taking each area of your life, separately, and quietly drilling down to find your meaning in each area, through  quiet, mindfulness, and meditation and other quiet energy paths, you will find your meaning coming to you…slowly but surely.  From there, you will find what resonates for you…only then can you, and only you, determine what “balance” is for you.  You will know it when you feel it…feelings are another topic for another week.
