Remove All Toxins From the Body in 3 Days: A Method That Prevents Cancer, Removes Fat and Excess Water!

Daily techniques to apply to your life that could make a huge impact.

Some beautiful verbiage from Yuben de Wu Hsin via my friend Sky

“Beliefs are the unquestioned acceptance of an idea in the absence of verification and reason.   Beliefs are not facts; beliefs are the escape from facts. Beliefs are the food of a make-believe world.   Permanent clarity is available to you, but not if you want to cling to your beliefs.   If you insist on believing, believe this:   I am Conscious Life Energy. Because I am, all is. I am vibrant intelligence, by which flowers grow and wounds heal. In my absence, existence as it is known, ceases. The world is my manifest expression and this body is its instrument of perception and action. In this regard, I am the Knowing of every sensation, feeling and thought. I am the Author of every action.” 


“One can only know what occurs within the mind, which is the instrument or tool of conscious experience.   There is no such thing as "out there".   There is only our perception as inbound data. Everything is registered, just as it is. It is only via the mind that a selective representation of the data is created.   Thoughts are objects in the mind as things are objects in the world. The mind and the world are two separate dimensions, overlapping during the waking state. When you can so readily create a world when you dream, why do you believe the impossibility of your creating another world when you are awake?” 


“The mind is the process through which expression comes. The thought "I am" is the expression of being conscious.   It is the bridge from the relative to the Absolute. It is the aperture through which the Absolute perceives its expressions.   But you are neither the field nor its contents.   You are That Light by which light is perceived.   You are That which provides the blank canvas onto which the paint is applied. You provide the space which supports all objects while itself being ignored.   You are the seeing, the hearing, the perceiving, the knowing, and the doing of all that is seen, heard, perceived, known and done.   Like the wind, That that you are is known only by its effects.”

Another reminder to read 'Finite and Infinite Games'

“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” ~ Robert A. Heinlein

“When individuals try to balance self-interest with a consideration of the bigger picture, they discover, as Socrates did, that deep self-interest actually includes concern for the good of the whole.” ~ Louis G. Herman


“Real confidence has no bluster or bombast. It’s not rooted in a desire to seem better than everyone else and it’s not driven by a fear of appearing weak. Real confidence settles in when you have a clear vision of exactly what you need to do. Real confidence blooms as you wield the skills and power you have built through your hard work and discipline.” –Rob Brezsny


Being concerned with vision rather than power leads to courage, which leads to liberation, which leads to the need to empower and liberate others, which leads to other visionary people, which leads to accountability, which leads to sustainability, which leads to a healthy community for all, and therefore a healthy infinite game for all. --> Great Fractal Enlightenment article

How to Shift Out of a Low Vibration

1)    Stop Resisting: Many of those things which we see as ‘low vibration’ are just memories, emotions, or beliefs that are coming to the surface to be released.  Just let them go and enjoy the space that opens up.  Remember that what we resist persists.

2)    Take Action: Inaction and procrastination can make you feel like the flow of energy is so sluggish that it’s almost at a complete stop.  The more and more we put off what we truly desire to do or what we know we need to do, the heavier it becomes and the more difficult it becomes to take action. Therefore, TAKE ACTION!  Even just one small check off the to-do list starts the momentum of feeling positive about oneself and empowered in one’s life. 

3)    Express Your Anger: Many times the first open door to exit a lower feeling vibration is to move energy through the vehicle of anger.  The lowest vibratory feelings are guilt, shame, fear, and powerlessness. If you are feeling powerless or shameful, anger can be the next emotional rung up on the ladder, allowing you to use your anger to shift out of feeling powerless and into a feeling of rightful anger.  As long as we can take responsibility for our reality and use the anger to energize us to a better place, it can be a positive thing.

4)    Get Moving: Moving our physical bodies is a sure-fire way to raise the overall vibration. We often can get stuck in our thoughts or emotions and forget that we are embodied in these physical vessels and that our thought and emotional spheres are inherently interwoven in the fibers of our physical body. Exercise- anything ranging from running to yoga to dance to weights to swimming, hiking, etc., moves the energy in our body. This energizes us which improves our feeling of self-worth, gives us fresh motivation and inspiration, and helps the body release unneeded energies at all levels, making us stronger.

5)    Go Into Nature: Going out onto beautiful mother earth and soaking in her inherent goodness is one of the most obvious and simple ways to raise your vibration.  The earth is our sanctuary and we are in vibratory resonance with her- this is proven by science (aka the Schumann Resonance).  It has been proven that ‘earthing’ or being barefoot in the grass, is beneficial for our physical health, and many of us know from experience how nourishing it is for the spirit.

EARTH BLOCK Homes!

"Building with compressed-earth blocks makes sense, and not just because most of the construction materials are right under our feet. Earthen walls regulate temperatures, dampen sound, repel mold and, with the right build, they can resist earthquakes, fires and other disasters"
-How to Build a Compressed Earth Block Home


Everything is Energy!

It's all about the unseen...Frequency, Vibration & Energy! NOW is the perfect moment to stop judging/perceiving life through the 1 and only Sensory Factors/Lens. FEEL your existence, emit the frequency you choose and act like an antenna! Every thought has its own signature frequency!!!

5 DIY Personal Care Products

Daily use of the chemicals in our personal care products can be avoided! Check out these 5 easy recipes :)



1.Deodorant
If you are still using anti-perspirant then you should definitely consider some new options! Yes, this stuff does wonders to keep your underarms dry and smelling fresh, but do you ever wonder what happens to the sweat that would have been expelled via the armpits but never was? Our bodies sweat; it is a natural process that assists with the elimination of toxins within the body. Not only do anti-perspirants stop that from happening but they leave aluminum and parabens in its place! Have you ever had a white shirt that eventually gets yellowish colored stains on the under arms? Those are not sweat stains; they are actually caused by the aluminum that is in the anti-perspirant.
For those of you who already use natural deodorant, how well does it work? For me it never has really worked at all except for a few hours after the application. It has a smell, which covers up some odor, but wears off fairly quick and has to be reapplied several times throughout the day. Not only that, but it is fairly expensive as well.
I have heard of homemade deodorant before, but I never really believed that it would work considering that I wasn’t having any success with the natural store bought deodorant. I figured if this worked so well, why wouldn’t these brands that make natural deodorant have figured out the recipe by now? It wasn’t until recently when a friend told me about how well this homemade deodorant actually works, that I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did! It works so well, and I kid you not, it lasts all day! Even through strenuous exercise and hot days in the garden, it is a miracle! And here is the recipe: (from wellnessmama.com)
  • 6 T coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup (4 T) baking soda
  • 1/4 cup (4 T) arrowroot or cornstarch
  • essential oils (optional)
Mix all of the ingredients together and then store in a container. In the summer months or in hotter climates this mixture will get very soft and even turn to liquid, so just be aware of that. Apply a small dad to each underarm area and rub it in. That’s it!
2. Toothpaste
Toothpaste is another product that generally contains a lot of chemicals and can be beneficial to switch to a more natural option. Again, many of these natural toothpastes that are available can be quite expensive. Why not make your own? There are many recipes on the web, but here is one that I found to be economical and works great! Here is the recipe: (from diynatural.com)
  •  2/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 tsp. fine sea salt (optional – direct application of the minerals in sea salt is great for teeth, but can be left out if the taste is too salty)
  • 1 – 2 tsp. peppermint extract or 10-15 drops peppermint essential oil (or add your favorite flavor – spearmint, orange, etc.)
  • Filtered water (add to desired consistency)
3. Shampoo
Here is a product that seems to be so complicated as there are literally thousands of different types for literally every single hair type and every single color, dyed hair, natural hair, thick hair, thin hair, flat hair and everything else in between. This recipe is so simple you may not believe it until you try it. Yes, there are many great natural plant based shampoo products available, especially at health food stores. But did you know that you can make your own using one, dirt cheap ingredient?
  •  Baking soda
That’s it, unless you include water as an ingredient. Simply use between 2 and 4 tablespoons of baking soda mixed with 3 times as much water (depending on length and thickness of your hair) I use a squeeze bottle and it works great! Start on your roots on dry or wet hair and distribute evenly through your hair. You may want to avoid your ends unless they feel particularly greasy. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes and then rinse it all out. There are a few benefits to this:
  1.  Seriously, this definitely one of the cheapest ways to wash your hair.
  2. You should be able to wash your hair less often.
  3. This method is all-natural and you won’t be piling gunk and chemicals all over your hair that actually cause it to get greasy over time.
  4. You will be helping the environment by eliminating the waste produced from shampoo bottles and harmful chemicals that go right down the drain.
Don’t knock this method until you try it! It works great and is well worth a shot!
4.Conditioner
This is pretty much just as simple as the shampoo recipe above, one ingredient only: apple cider vinegar. It may seem strange to put vinegar in your hair after washing it, but this method works exceptionally well especially after washing it with the baking soda method. You will be surprised how well and soft this makes your hair feel, even if it is thick, curly, frizzy or all the above. This treatment even works wonders for those who experience dandruff. You will want to make sure that you use unpasteurized apple cider vinegar to be sure all of the beneficial nutrients are still in tact. Simply put 1 part ACV to 4 parts water into another squeeze bottle or a spray bottle even works well for this and apply all over hair and again wait for a minute or two before you thoroughly rinse off with cool water. You’ll be amazed how easy it is to comb through your hair and how soft and shiny it will be after it dries. Please note that this can leave your hair smelling slightly vinegary, feel free to add a few drops of essential oil to the mixture to help lighten up the vinegar smell.
5. Hand, Face and Body Lotion
Women across the globe spend billions of dollars on skin care products and anti-aging creams annually. Yes, men do too, but nowhere near to the same extent as women, all in the name of beauty. The interesting thing here is that a lot –actually most of the products contain a large amount of chemicals including parabens, and fragrances that are actually very toxic to us. In the pursuit of youthful glowing skin it seems that in some cases we are actually making it worse, less glowing and less elastic. Anything that goes onto your skin goes into your bloodstream as well. So, I think it is safe to say that we shouldn’t be putting anything onto our skin that would be unsafe to ingest. Makes sense right? The same way that what you put in your skin can get into your bloodstream, what you are eating can directly effect the appearance of your skin. Be sure to drink plenty of water, and try out this natural homemade body lotion.
  •  ½ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp. Liquid Vitamin E Oil
  • 5-7 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil or Rosewater
Combine all ingredients and store in a little jar. A little dab is all that is needed morning, evening or both.

Turn undrinkable/contaminated water into pure, crystal-clear distilled water!

The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. -Nikola Tesla

10 Incredible Tesla Quotes

In February 1892, Tesla said: "Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic! If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic — and this we know it is, for certain — then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature. Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency."

"Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance."

Hawking

If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.

Statin Nation

Heart Disease/Heart Attack is NOT caused by clogging of the artery. In actuality, the Endothelium is broken in some way, and the healing process begins creating a scab on the artery wall. Then the Endothelium grows over scab producing Atherosclerosis. What is prompting the break or tare in the artery wall is the big question here.
This visual is yet another representation of a major misconception affecting people world-wide.


Here are a couple clips from Statin Nation...At the 8:05 mark in the first video is where they talk about what causes a heart attack. Everyone needs to see this !

Missing link found between brain, immune system

http://www.kurzweilai.net/missing-link-found-between-brain-immune-system?utm_source=KurzweilAI+Weekly+Newsletter&utm_campaign=335c3d9eab-UA-946742-1&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_147a5a48c1-335c3d9eab-282114297

"Overrturning decades of textbook teaching, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have discovered that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist.
The finding could have significant implications for the study and treatment of neurological diseases ranging from autism to Alzheimer’s disease to multiple sclerosis."

"The unexpected presence of the lymphatic vessels raises a tremendous number of questions that now need answers, both about the workings of the brain and the diseases that plague it.
For example: 'In Alzheimer’s, there are accumulations of big protein chunks in the brain,' Kipnis said. 'We think they may be accumulating in the brain because they’re not being efficiently removed by these vessels.'”

Medicine Hat becomes the first city in Canada to eliminate homelessness

http://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-thursday-edition-1.3074402/medicine-hat-becomes-the-first-city-in-canada-to-eliminate-homelessness-1.3074742

Within 10 days of the city recognizing that someone doesn't have a place to live, they will find you one. Not a shelter, a home. No one in the city goes more than 10 days without a place to live!

"He says city staff found housing for one man, but he insisted on leaving to sleep under cars. Day after day, they'd search him out and take him back to his new home.
'They did it 75 times, but they had the patience and they didn't give up on him and, eventually, he ended up staying in the house,' he says. 'Ultimately, people do want a roof over their heads.'"

This may be motivated to save money for the city, and could have some special interest undertones, but nonetheless, a great precedent to start spreading! Thank you Medicine Hat & Mayor Clugston!

6 Techniques in Quiteing the Mind

1 and 2 are my favorite!

1. Focus On What You See When You Close Your Eyes
If asked to describe what we see when we close our eyes, most of us would describe it as the colour black. However, the truth is that our closed eyes are often telling us a much more interesting story. Close your eyes right now, focus on what you see. Is it actually just the solid colour black? Or is it more of a mixture of colours, some of which are undoubtedly created by the lighting in the room in which you are sitting?
No matter what you see, when you actually pay attention to it, it’s definitely something that can draw quite a bit of your attention, and I’ve often found it to be a great starting point to quieting my mind. At the very least it helps to shift my mind away from scattered thoughts, instead closing in on one focused thought – one that often sparks the creative element of my brain, which starts looking for images amongst the colourful display.
2. Scan Your Body
Our bodies are pretty damn intricate, and when you actually break them down part by part they can be quite interesting to explore. When it comes to quieting your mind, this same intricacy can also be quite a powerful tool. One of my personal favourite ways to bring myself into a quieter state of mind is to scan my body from top to bottom, focusing on how each part feels as I pay attention to it.
Once you can move past the judgemental thoughts of how stupid or silly this seems, you may actually find yourself pleasantly surprised by how much energy you feel. I find that focusing on this energetic flow not only quiets my mind but shifts my focus to the internal elements of who I am, rather than the distractions of the outside world.
3. Stay Connected To Nature
As someone who just moved from a nature-filled suburb into a condo in the heart of downtown Toronto, the difficulty of finding ways to regularly connect with nature has never been higher, but I intend to make it work. I intend to make it work because I know how important it is to my own well-being, and because I know that nature is the perfect surrounding in which to find peace.
Nature is both colourful and happening like a city, but it manages to capture these elements in a way that is much more calming and connective, rather than rampant and distracting. The next time you are looking to quiet your mind, spend some time outdoors. Focus on how naturally a stream flows or how calmly a blade of grass sits and realize that you too can flow and be calm just as naturally.
4. The Power Of Your Breath
There’s a reason why the majority of guided meditations begin by instructing us to focus on our breath. It’s something that we all do, all the time, yet it happens and adapts so naturally that we can often go days without ever actually thinking about it. Giving some attention to your breath can be an incredibly powerful way to quiet your mind and relax your body in general.
A particular breathing pattern I’ll often practise when aiming to quiet my mind is to do 3 cycles of breath where I breath in through my nose for 4 seconds, hold the breath for 3, and then release through my mouth for another 4 seconds. I’ll also ensure that the breath inflates my stomach (rather than my chest), since this type of breathing in particular seems most calming.
5. Go Through What You’re Grateful For
We love inundating our minds with negative thought patterns and basking in reasons why people should feel sorry for us, but we rarely take the time to go through what we are appreciative of in life. This technique may not quiet your mind completely, but it certainly helps to shut up the Negative Nancy we often let run as a part of our auto-pilot.
I’ve found the best way to do this is to sit down with a paper and pen, and jot down – without judgement – everything in life that you are grateful for. It could be something as heartwarming as your loving pet, or as seemingly silly as your easily accessible parking spot at work. The bottom line is we all have things to be grateful for in life, and can gain a lot from taking some time to focus on them rather than on our seemingly insurmountable problems.
6. Drop The Label
So many of us admire people who can effectively meditate or quiet their minds, yet we also love labelling ourselves as incapable of being like them. I don’t mean to sound condescending, but just because you tried meditating once and ended up just thinking about dinner doesn’t mean you are incapable of experiencing a quiet mind.
Meditation, like everything else, is something that you need to work on and be committed to practicing. They say it takes about 21 days to develop a new habit, so why not push yourself to regularly practice something you’d like to experience rather than opt to take the quitter’s mentality? You have a lot more control than you may think!

Introducing The Peddling Flaneur Experiment

Godsil + Jared + Muneer + Milwaukee + Artists + Youth + Farmers Market + Community Garden =  P.F.E.
Le Flaneur 

Currently embarking on Neighborhood Relationships in Washington Park with Muneer Bahauddeen, David Baucher & Company via the introduction from the wonderfully conscious Lightworker James Godsil. This dynamic group of visionaries is a testament to the Boomer/Millennial communal precedent that we are setting by bringing The Peddling Flaneur Experiment to fruition!

My Spiritual/Life Guide James Godsil
Muneer Bahauddeen: Founder of Ogbe Meji Studios



Muneer’s dreams are bigger than just his own personal space, and his presence in the neighborhood is immediately apparent. His distinctive ceramic tiles, and the tiles made by visitors to his workshop, can be seen in Amaranth Bakery, on a bench at the community center, in parks, and on wooden posts dotted around the community. Muneer explains that the posts, which contain visions for the community written down by its members and slipped behind handmade tiles, serve as a visual reminder of its potential and the people who care about it.


The flâneur was, first of all, a literary type from 19th century France, essential to any picture of the streets of Paris. The word carried a set of rich associations: the man of leisure, the idler, the urban explorer, the connoisseur of the street.
The crowd is his element, as the air is that of birds and water of fishes. His passion and his profession are to become one flesh with the crowd. For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate spectator, it is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel oneself everywhere at home; to see the world, to be at the centre of the world, and yet to remain hidden from the world—impartial natures which the tongue can but clumsily define. The spectator is a prince who everywhere rejoices in his incognito. The lover of life makes the whole world his family, just like the lover of the fair sex who builds up his family from all the beautiful women that he has ever found, or that are or are not—to be found; or the lover of pictures who lives in a magical society of dreams painted on canvas. Thus the lover of universal life enters into the crowd as though it were an immense reservoir of electrical energy. Or we might liken him to a mirror as vast as the crowd itself; or to a kaleidoscope gifted with consciousness, responding to each one of its movements and reproducing the multiplicity of life and the flickering grace of all the elements of life.
—Charles Baudelaire, "The Painter of Modern Life", (New York: Da Capo Press, 1964). Orig. published in Le Figaro, in 1863.
David Baucher is the epitome of Building Resilience through Relationships and is is the area's neighborhood planner.
"The relationships that he is building in Washington Park are making his community stronger by creating the social capital that brings community residents together to focus on opportunities and work against the isolation that poverty in the neighborhood has caused.  His relationship with Muneer Bahaudeen and Dan Bieser of Tabal Chocolate has helped to stabilize the area by encouraging artistic expression in the neighborhood and focusing on small business development on Lisbon Ave."



http://www.exyomke.org/
Express Yourself is across the street from Muneer's art studio/garden where the focus is on immersing young people in the arts, where they find a powerful tool for self-expression, uncover inner strength, & deepen connection.


I am looking forward to collaborating with Munner as we create Spiritual Batteries for the youth and community to hopefully invigorate and energize a robust, sustainable Washington Park environment. With these efforts, there is no doubt in my mind that we will showcase Milwaukee as the Holy City of the Sweet Water Seas.
