Change

Animas River Trail

This photo reminds me of how ever-changing life is. This photo was taken 9.26.19 and by today, 10.3.19, the scenery has changed drastically. The Animas River (in Durango, CO) is covered by gold glory right now. These green leaves are gone.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

-Charles Darwin

All this Colorado “gold” (yellow and orange leaves) immediately made me hone in on my chakras. I felt this mix wanting to tap in on my sacral chakra (orange) and solar plexus (yellow).

Oh and please don’t stop reading if you aren’t located in Colorful Colorado – the fall / autumn ‘colors’ are all over the United States (not Costa Rica, however, and I do have to admit I truly missed this season -but I did not miss that Texas ragweed-). Do you see these colors today?

CHAKRAS

The orange sacral chakra is motivated by pleasure (hello hiking)! It’s the driving force force for the enjoyment of life through the senses (hello hiking)! By clearing blockages in your sacral chakra, you are able to “feel” the world around and in you (hello hiking). It’s such an important energy point at the foundation of our feeling of well-being (hello hiking… is that getting old (ok, i’ll stop)?. It’s also instrumental in developing flexibility in our life (change). Associated with the water element, it’s characterized by movement and flow in our emotions and thoughts. To live like water, to live in that change.

“Change is the only constant in life.”

-Heraclitus

Back to the chakras – the yellow solar plexus allows you to know yourself and live with confidence and strength. If balanced, it will allow you to know YOU (and others – without judgement or criticism). Hiking helps me find that.

HIKING THOUGHTS

Yesterdays jaunt reminded me of what little we actually need witnessing the changes and via the eyes of my children. They were so excited to move back to the states and get into storage and rediscover their “stuff”. They asked for “it” for a few days, but seeing that their “stuff” is still in a crate… I’m guessing they are dealing with the change.

Horse Gulch

It’s just stuff. It’s as simple as that. I went a little coo coo on a few occassions. I cried to D and then excused myself from the house and went to town. I also cried to my parents (but that was more about me not feeling good and maybe also bc everything is covered in sheet rock dust). I just needed to cry. I was in a moment of rough waters of change.

  • I am in lots of uncertainties. I am in change.
  • I am uncertain where my clothes are. I am in change.
  • I am uncertain of why I feel tired all the time. I am in change.
  • I am uncertain of how to get my spine from curving. I am in change.
  • I am uncertain about bacteria and parasites that keep showing up. I am in change.
  • I am uncertain about the spirit the exorcism dr pulled from me. I am in change.
  • I am uncertain why my hand is stiff. I am in change.
  • I am uncertain why I try to be healthy and yet, I feel this way. I am in change.

But my kids have shown me that they masterfully and beautifully glide through uncertainty and change. They don’t ask about the crate anymore, or their beds or why we don’t have doors. They just snuggle and smile. 

Note: we did get them bikes and a cat so it’s not like they have absolutely “nothing” to play with. Both can be freely enjoyed on the property. 

I’ve also realized that right now is the time to live my best life – no matter the change. Today is the day to fall in love with today. Living in the moment and smiling. Growth is happening. Peace is happening. Change is happening.

Keep wishing and a hoping and a praying (jotting down notes if you need – that is amazing). But what about also just continuously and mentally noting the amazingness of this very moment. 

Mmmmmmm — me in my head — (note: it’s 4:30am and I’m in front of our only heater with a coffee and a candle trying not to wake the other 8 house guests (okay, 3 are animals), but still I don’t want to wake any of them.

HERE ARE MY CHANGE GRATITUDES OF THE DAY

  • Thank you for allowing us to get doors yesterday. 
  • Thank you, parentals, for ordering a heater (for their apartment) so I can sit in the kitchen with this coffee and candle and jot away in my computer (ha – I’m grateful the internet is down… maybe).
  • I’m grateful that despite my weird health, I was able to do yoga this morning. 
  • I am grateful for Memphis — he gives the best hugs, snuggles, love, and calming effect. Oh he is so delicious. I got sad last night thinking about all the hikes he would have loved to go on with me, but I smile and the thought of all the hikes he went on with me. Once I can figure out a ramp — I’m taking him out for some short ones! I think that will be our best life together. He is part of my soul. He sees me. He’s always looked into my eyes with such deep love. He’s an old man now, but he’s known me longer than my even husband and children. 
  • I am grateful for Marynn who just woke up and asked me to blow the air mattress up (it has a hole). 
Marynn + Memphis + Mattress
  • I am grateful for Will sneaking into my bed (well, mattress on the floor) with me bc their air mattress deflates and Marynn & Memphis end up on top of him.I am grateful for my parents being here — mom cooking, dad building cabinets, and the two of them showing the kids things we don’t. I am also grateful that we are able to provide them a space in our home that will be theirs (Lightner Creek Apartment). 
  • I am grateful for fall to witness my favorite colors. 
  • I am grateful for the Catrick Swayze. I think. I’m still getting to the litter box thing.
  • I’m grateful for ‘those’ that pop into my head upon writing this hokie-pokie-ness.
  • I am grateful for you. Thanks for being a part of riding this wave of change with me.

The Last Star + Presence

The Last Star

What a funny world we live in. I just wrote about being “content” on life and then life threw me a curve ball. I am happy with, figuratively and literally, where we are (even if that “means” camping in our current money pit). But then the death came in and mixed my sensitive ways all up.

I love living this glorious life. I truly think my past-life ancestors were explorers. Exploring feeds and fuels my soul. Or nomads, but whatever they were there is some adventure-finding stuff in me.

I’ll probably only be left with photos of monkeys and bears + friends and kids + lots n lots of solo hikes at my funeral, but that’s really okay with me. That is me.

But then damn Brené Brown has to use her words to throw my confidence and contentment for a goddamn loop.

Someone super special to me just passed away and once again… I am away. This happened with both of Dustin’s grandparents. We waited and waited for the news of his grandmother and even pushed a vacation w/ friends. We are 10 hours into the drive and we get the call that she has passed. We couldn’t afford to all leave the vacation (bc we just paid for it all) and fly to MO. Does Dustin go alone? Then the same incident happens when leaving MO visiting is grandfather. One day he was chatting with Will and by the next morning he was in the hospital. They didn’t know how long. Could this be like grandma and last for weeks? We had no idea. And of course on our drive back to TX, he passes.

And now this. AJ passes away the day my parents arrive in CO. They came up a week early. Why in the world would this timing keep happening?

Because… back to damn Brené (have you guys read, Braving the Wilderness)?

She talks about being at a funeral in a small town in Texas and how funerals are “one of the most powerful examples of collective pain”. Guess what else she goes on to say? “When I asked participants to identify three to five specific behaviors that their friends, family, and colleagues do that raise their level of trust with them, funerals always emerged in the top three responses. Funerals matter. Showing up to them matters. And funerals matter not just to the people grieving, but to everyone who is there. When I asked The collective pain (and sometimes joy) we experience when gathering in any way to celebrate the end of a life is perhaps one of the most powerful experiences of inextricable connection. Death, loss, and grief are the great equalizers.

“Only holiness will call people to listen now. And the work of holiness is not about perfection or niceness; it is about belonging, that sense of being in the Presence and through the quality of that belonging, the mild magnetic of implicating others in the Presence. This is not about forging a relationship with a distant God but about the realization that we are already within God.”

— John O’Donohue (Chapter Six: Hold Hands. With Strangers)

I, like Brené’s aunt Betty, do not want a funeral. I do want my people near and far to come and party (and not a pot-luck, please cater that baby so nobody has to stress about food or clean… take the $ from my life insurance pot if you need to).

PLEASE NOTE: I DESPISE POTLUCKS

Back to Betty… I too just want to celebrate! I want you to chat about the fun and love we shared together. If you cannot make it, I want you to chime in live or with hashtags or photos and lots of coffee and bubbly! I want you all to chat about how amazing your life is “of all times right now”. I want you to promise to look after my 2 kids and hubs! I want you to celebrate knowing that I’ll always be looking after you all (insert: evil laugh bc you know I’ll so love watching after you).

Brené mentions, “An experience of collective pain does not deliver us from grief or sadness; it is a ministry of presence. These moments remind us that we are not alone in our darkness and that our broken heart is connected to every heart that has known pain since the beginning of time.”

My contented heart is conflicted. Am I selfish for feeling like I need to be there for funerals or am I not ministering my presence for that individual and that is selfish?

I did jolt out of bed early in this morning and see the above star. It made me smile. I smiled because I knew it was AJ telling me it was all going to be okay. Life is complicated enough and it doesn’t need to be pilled up with guilt of always being “away”. I do, however, recognize that I have a lot to improve on. I owe so many people gifts (simply because I get overwhelmed on finding the perfect thing and I suck at online shopping). It takes me forever to respond to social media and then it overwhelms me, but gollee do I love you. My love for you people is so hardcore.

I hope you can honor the place where I find peace; forgive me for all my faults; and truly love me just as I am. And I hope that I will always be a light in your life for you to find your way, your peace, your contentment and your happiness. Just look up. Look for the Last Star and I’ll help you find the way.

Vitamin D (Drops) + Content

Chapman Hill Hike

“But right now, I’m content to bask in the sun and glory of the world that is my own. “

Poem by Seeker

I took off today in realization that I have not yet hiked one single mountain, much less a hill since we’ve moved to Colorado. I have been on kid duty and Dustin on house-remodel duty and both on trying to keep up with work-duties.

I drove around like a coo coo head peeping in windows of hair salons to see which one “felt” best. I have no idea where to go and if you saw me, I apologize for the strange behavior.

These little trails screamed out at me today on a drive by to the next hair salon. I knew I needed to get out in nature and get my therapy on.

Sunshine in my face is such an important vitamin for me. Speaking of… if you think you are in an possible way in need of Vitamin D, check out the brand, Pure Encapsulations. I add 1 drop to each of the kids’ water bottles and 2 to mine.

I’m recovering from some parasite “stuff” and I can fully tell that my body is in desperate need of repair. So, although I’m getting a lot of this sunny sunshine in Colorful Colorado… I’m adding this supplement. I also have Will and Marynn on it to fight off the cooties going around in their school. Other benefits include:

  • healthy bones and teeth
  • healthy immune, brain and nervous system
  • regulates insulin levels (diabetic aid)
  • supports lung function (mine is off) and cardiovascular health
  • protects against cancer, type 1 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis
Chapman Hill Hike
Chapman Hill Hike

I was cruising up this not-so-long hike and I was overwhelmed by contentment. You see, it was mentioned to me recently, “I know your life too is challenging, although your life online is picture perfect”. Something like that… I tend to not want to dwell on the exacts, for I also was trying to figure out why it nudged at me a little bit.

I (we) have given up a lot of stuff to find “our” happy. It’s just that, though… it’s “our” happy. Many others would not liked to have packed all our belongs every few months to to witness ocean view after ocean view or sit in cloud forest after cloud forest. But we did. I (we) did not have that feeling while living in Austin. I felt stuck and starting to suffocate and I could tell D was feeling that tingle too. I didn’t feel present with the kids and I felt like life was slipping by, although I chanted to myself each day, “today is a such a gift”.

Now don’t get me wrong, I miss Austin, I miss my friends, I miss Texas, I miss family, but this is a soul-filling mission. So yes, behind the scenes of photos are my precious friends and family that we miss dearly.

But what also developed is bonds of squeezes and love after lapsed time – truly cherishing the valuable time we do have together. We’ve had more folks stay with us in the past two years that I think I’ve ever had in my life. There is no better feeling than waking up with friends and family, snuggling with coffee and deepening our relationships.

Yes, our party of 4 gets annoyed with each other. Dustin’s beard is annoying me right now bc when he talks it looks like his beard wants to eat something. You know that little girl from Ms. Perrigrine’s that eats the turkey leg on the back of her head … yep, that’s his beard. It’s peculiar, but mostly it annoys me bc I know he isn’t taking care of himself. He’s putting work, us and the house ahead of himself.

We have many issues that many would never want to take on (like, um, Type 1 and Parasites), but we are content. We truly can say we have made changes that allows us to bask in the sun and glory of the world that is “our” own. I love and cherish all the unique stories out there of the journeys you take. I love that we each have various desires, loves and contentments. I have sad days and anxious days and really crazy elated days, but overall – I. Am. Content.

THE HEART CHAKRA

YAM

Play this while reading and during your Restorative Fish Pose (or anytime you feel you may need a little heart opening)…

THE HEART CHAKRA

The heart chakra is this beautiful area of the body surrounding… you probably guessed it… the heart.

It is associated with love, compassion, and self-acceptance.

It represents being “unstruck,”. When properly “aligned,” past hurts are said to no longer harm us. When balanced, we are filled with love, compassion, and self-acceptance. When imbalanced, we can be angry, jealous, sad, and untrusting.

RESTORATIVE FISH POSE

You will need blocks, a bolster, a blanket or some towels.

Lie your bolster, blankets or towels vertically aligned with your mat.

If you have blocks, allow the first block to support your back just below the tips of your shoulder blades, and the second block to support the back of your skull.

Send your heart toward the sky and open your arms into a T.

You can have you legs in a butterfly pose or stretch them out long. Choose whichever variations feel best for you and breathe deeply here for no less than five minutes.

If you need to decrease the intensity place a rolled-up blanket (instead of a block) under your heart.

Relax. Allow your legs to become heavy. Soften your shoulders away from your ears. Release any tension you may be holding in your jaw. Breathe deep.

Visualize the color green.

Bring your attention to your heart center.

Think of someone you love deeply. Send all your loving-kindness to this one person. Repeat the following mantra as if speaking to the person…

“May you live with ease, may you be happy, may you be free from pain,”

-Loving-Kindness Meditation

Next, think of someone toward whom you have neutral feelings. Focus on them, sending all of your loving-kindness to this person while repeating the same mantra, focusing on them.

Then, think of someone with whom you struggle. Repeat the mantra and send that person all of your loving-kindness. Then think of yourself. Repeat the mantra and send all of your loving-kindness to yourself.

Finally, think of all living beings. Repeat the mantra as you send loving-kindness to all beings everywhere.

Sit with these feelings for a few moments.

Namaste.

Coconut Flour + Pumpkin

This week we made Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Chocolate Chips for Folk Foods!

We decided to use coconut flour in our muffins to create a snack that is gluten-free, rich in fiber, high in MCTs, promotes stable blood sugar, is good for digestion, great for heart health, fights infections and boosts weight loss.

We chose coconut flour vs other gluten-free flours because it has 2-3 times more fiber than the other gluten-free flours. It’s also milder in taste and is an easy alternative for those allergic to nuts. Coconut flour is also lower in omega 6 fats. This is important because often times diets are too high in omega-6 fats and too low in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats (which leads to inflammation and may increase the risk of heart disease).

Pumpkin Love

And why did we go with pumpkin in the muffins? Well, we are trying to call the cooler autumn weather forth as well as take advantage of all the health benefits this fall fruit contains.

Pumpkin is pumped full of nutrients and super low in calories! We already sent out an email with all the amazing health benefits, but how about the effects it has on our skin?!

Pumpkin is pumped full of vitamin C , which is a powerful antioxidant. It also contains beta-carotene which helps to reverse UV damage and improve skin texture. This orange fruit helps promote the production of collagen which improves skin tone and elasticity. It also protects the skin from radical damage which is responsible for causing wrinkles.

Dark Spots Pumpkin Mask

Prepare a face pack by mixing the following ingredients. Apply this mixture to a damp face until is dries (maybe 30 minutes or so). Rinse off with warm water. Enjoy this chemical free, natural option for those pesky spots.

  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon honey,
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil

BANANA BREAD, MEATBALLS, FRUIT N SEEDS – OH MY!

HEALTHY BANANA BREAD

Banana bread is such an easy, grab and go breakfast choice… but the amount of sugar, flour and butter (or oil) found in most banana bread recipes puts them unfortunately in the junk food category.

Our healthy banana bread out-healths traditional banana bread recipes in a few ways:

1-Toasted Oatmeal Flour is what we use to replace bleached white flour. Oat flour is gluten-free and made from whole oats that have been ground into a powder. Oat flour gives baked goods more flavor than regular all-purpose flour, though it also gives them a chewier texture.

2-Bananas are actually a huge secret to keep the muffins moist without oil or butter and sweet.

3-Honey (only a teeny bit) is used to sweeten the recipe (vs refined white sugar) and sometimes we use absolutely no sweetener at all. It simply depends on the ripeness of the bananas.

Don’t be alarmed about the taste! Toasting and grinding the oats results in a smooth bread with a slightly nutty flavor while the sweetness will still tempt the pickiest eaters.

Pesto Chicken Veggie Meatballs

Thse tiny bites are so loved. Maybe because they are convenient. Maybe because they’re delicious. Maybe it’s because we know children are 98.1% more likely to eat something that’s tiny-sized and if that tiny-sized is packed with protein and veggies… WE ARE… W I N N I N G.

This is one of those lovely strategies we use to help little one’s discover new palates and it that is usually pretty darn successful.

You can certainly serve these atop pasta for the kiddos (or gluten-free pasta for yourself) and smothered in your favorite sauce (Alfredo, marinara, pesto–it all works). We love to serve them with toothpicks and a dollop of a delicious marinara or pesto on the side. Try them served with your favorite roasted veggies, or on zoodles or on in a salad — IT’S ENDLESS DELICIOUSNESS.

SLIMMING SNACK

Next up for the week of meal preppin’ is our favorite mix of in-season fruits served with chia seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, organic-gluten-free-granola, nuts and even a drizzle of honey to blast that sugar craving away. So guess what that means? This treat is pumped full of protein, fiber and ALA-Omega 3s. B O O M. Yep, that was a nutrition blast you felt!

RECIPES OR PICK UP

If these recipes speak to your heart (and weekly meal planning), reach out to us for pick-up if you live in our area or simply email and we will send you the recipes. We will send recipes, portion sizes, meal ideas and grocery list for only $3.99.

Folk Foods 4

STRAWBERRIES!

There was a lot of info already listed about your meal plan this week, but we have so much more to say about Strawberries. We love most is that they rival citrus fruits for vitamin C and they’re packed with antioxidants.

  • Strawberries get their red color from an antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation (a major symptom in chronic diseases). They may also curb the growth of cancer cells.
  • They also boast loads of potassium, which can help keep your blood pressure in check.
  • Strawberries contain an antioxidant and effective cancer fighter, particularly against colon and cervical cancers.
  • Studies have shown promising results for blood-sugar regulation, given the low glycemic index (GI) value of strawberries. 
  • Studies have shown a reduced cognitive loss in women who consumed at least 1–2 servings of strawberries per week. Now we’re talking, folksters! 

SURPRISE! 

We snuck in a surprise for you this week’s Folk Foods Pick Up! Wait – make that two surprises! 

The surprise is a packaged snack where you WILL NOT find these top allergens: wheat/gluten, dairy, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish and are made without casein, potato, sesame and sulfites. Woot! Not only that, these are non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, kosher and paleo-friendly.  What you WILL find is a delicious, all-natural combo of raw sunflower kernels, roasted pumpkin seeds, raisins, dried apples, chocolate chips, cranberries. 

Throw these snack packs in your purse and keep them on hand for that darn-aha-moment of realizing “I’m about to miss a meal”. Each bite you take of these, know this is your return-customer-thank-you-snack-a-rooskie. WE SO APPRECIATE YOU.

3 INGREDIENT HUMMUS & VEGGIE
This homemade delicious dip causes your mouth and innards to sing! We use only 3 ingredients to make this as much of a whole-food product as possible. This hummus contains chickpeas which is a plant-based protein that provides 7.9 grams of protein per serving. It combats chronic inflammation and is full of fiber which promotes good digestive health. Studies have shown that chickpeas even lower the risk of colon cancer. It’s ‘totes’ on the low glycemic index therefore it helps control blood sugar levels. Do you know how?

These vegan ‘peanut butter cups’ are loved by all — bigs and littles. They are the perfect treat to pop in your mouth after a workout, for breakfast, as on-the-go-snack or to throw a post-dinner-desert-craving to the curb. Guess what? They are sweetened with — dates! What helps keep you full — oat flour. We wanted our bites to contain beta-glucans (from the raw oats) which lower risk factors for high cholesterol and high blood pressure. We also snuck in chia seeds in for an extra health pop. Ch-ch-ch-chia! So what does all this ‘ingredient-stuff’ mean — these bites are bombing your guts with healthy fats, fiber, protein, omega 3s, antioxidents, iron and calcium. They help protect against stroke, improve your complexion, increase energy, enhance immune response to infection, have anti-tumor properties, stabilize blood sugar, and lower overall weight.

THIS NEW MOON

BALANCE
Whether you are having too much “me” time or too much “we” time, this new moon is all about balance (relationships and connections come into play too). This October 2018 new moon is in Libra and Libra is the sign of the scales for goodness sake!

So if you’ve been leaning too heavily on either side, it’s time to restore the balance this month by brining in the opposite & creating complimentary energy. 

Something else to consider – are you involved in a battle that is taking you out of alignment? Get out! Take more time for the relationships & connections that bring added value! 

LIBRA
In Libra, we are likely to feel the tension and duality a bit more (hello October) because learning to embrace life’s contradictions is one of Libra’s greatest lessons. 

Libra also gifts us to see all sides of the story and appreciate the pros and cons of all possible options. This of course can feel like a blessing and a curse, ha! 

THE NEW MOON
This new moon in Libra might be the reason October feels a bit tough & twisty, but just remember that recognizing beauty in others is what Libra (and life) is all about. The key is to realize that an ‘other’ is an individual with feelings, desires and needs that are distinct from – but equally important to – your own. 

Show some compassion this month – don’t be jealous or envious – don’t go running your mouth making snarky comments to friends or in public (that you might think are private) groups. It won’t make you feel better, look better or build you up by being a passive or aggressive b*&%$! Think before you speak… because those thoughts will become your destiny.

FINAL WORDS
Oh and another tip for our young readers out there (and to our grown that still act young) – your hurtful words and actions will indeed hurt the person you intend to hurt (even if it was… a secret). It always gets back to the person you intended to hurt in some way or form, but here is the real kicker – just remember, you only hurt yourself. You may not feel or notice it at first, but it’s a vibe thing, an energy thing that you just put out. That energy won’t attract the sweet stuff, the life you want in the long run and it’s only you to bare that weight upon your shoulders. If you feel like you are already there, scroll up to the top of this post and read again – it’s all about the balance this month. Try doing some kind things – right your wrongs. And if you’ve been hurt – simply understand that indeed the person that hurt you has something underneath that thick coat that hurts him/her. You were only that person’s target, but it has nothing to do with you.  Breathe that in, baby! 

Balance it out. Restore what’s off. Connect to what’s right. Hugs.
