I sat down at my computer today and considered turning on the house heater. Then I had a light bulb moment, why not have some soup with Organic Chicken Bone Broth that I cooked over the long weekend. Instant heat up. Body warmth, tummy warmth and health warmth.
Chicken bone broth can really just be used like a stock, but it has less salt and more health benefits. To make a great Chicken Bone Broth you will need these ingredients and time….
- x3 organic chicken carcass’ – you can buy these from your local chicken shop, which you will then then need to roast/seal in the oven or you can save your carcass’ from roast chickens and store them in the freezer until you have enough.
- Off cuts of vegetables all thrown in making sure you have onion and garlic in there too or celeriac/celery, carrots, a bulb/head garlic, onions x 2, sweet potato
- Vinegar – any type to leech the calcium out of the bones in an ultra bio-availiable form for you to absorb.
- Paprika, salt, turmeric, pepper
- A glob of Dark Soy
- I also add Huang Sou Wu (a Chinese blood tonic herb that is great for the hair) & Seaweed (to strengthen and nourish the Kidney’s in the colder months)
Throw everything into a super big pot and fill with filtered water, bring to the boil and then on a low simmer (lid on) for 24hrs (don’t forget to top up your pot with water every 8 hrs or so). Use 1 – 1.5 cups for a small soup and 2-3 cups for a large soup. You can also cook your rice in bone broth, especially brown rice is yummy and nourishing. If you are too BUSY you can just come by and pick some up from me for $12, my freezer is bursting!
Light & Warmth
Last Thursday at the time of the solar eclipse Luke & I ran our first Spiritual Awaking Session, we were excited to see so many interested human beings ready to awaken their Spirituality and their own surprise when the realisation hit it was all in there all along!
We covered topics such as Intention Setting, Chakra Clearing, Energy Recognition and Awareness, Premonition Writing and Readings.
Premonition writing is great tool to gain answers to questions that you seek. If you find that you mind won’t settle, is cloudy or too busy to find the answer and your dreams are just as chaotic then Premonition writing is great one to try. It works even better if you are an avid journal writer.
I have tried premonition writing in a couple of different ways and have honed my skills to share with you. First find a space that is quiet, set up you paper and pencil/pen. Close your eyes (here is the time we need to clear our mind so any messages can come through loud and clear), focus your mind on your question. What if questions come into my mind? If you deem these important open your eyes and write them on your paper for later, if they are just filler thoughts then close your eyes pop them in a ballon (in you mind) and let the ballon float away. Once your mind has a singular focus, that being your question, begin to write. You can write with your eyes open or closed, be sure not to lift your pencil off the paper keep contact at all times even when you are starting a new line.
I find this a great divination tool for my tool box. Let me know how you benefit!
Next Spiritual Awakening session is Thursday 14th April at 7.15pm, see you there.
I’m now a mother of a preppy. What does this mean? New challengers, allowing my little man to grow and learn in a formal setting, allowing others to lead in the teachings and building blocks of life and of course getting it together to get to school on time, becoming organised!
My life is mostly a mindful mediation. This is how I have chosen to live. Each activity has intent, is given time to unfold, manifest as needed and clarity of each task is performed in a mindful and slow rhythmic forward motion. Then a Curve ball from left field, you need to be at school on time. It has taken me a couple of weeks but I needed to gear up my rhythm of life and meet a new quota of organisation to achieve my goals of a mindfully meditative lifestyle.
Goals set to achieve have include: prepping school uniform, bags packed, pre-made kinder lunches (I purposefully choose a school that provides all meals which are mindfully eaten together as an entire school unit…great choice by the way), setting a consist rhythm and rules for the morning: no playing till you have eaten, washed, brushed your teeth and hair, put your plate in the dishwasher, pi’s in the laundry and made your bed. Each task is performed in the same order to set a rhythm and each morning the rhythm has picked up pace slowly so less emphasis is put on the ‘must do’s’ of life and more time can be spent of the pleasures of play.
Allowing the mind and body a Rhythm and routine of movement though morning preparation sets an easy tone for the day. Focus, preparation and rhythm are key steps towards freedom. The freedom of body is achieved for the body as it is a warm up to your day with familiar movements (I like to do a yogi salut to the sun each morning) and the freedom of mind is achieved as these tasks become a routine rhythmic morning meditation, taking out aspects of annoyance to complete a task, over thinking on what to do next or grunting out a task to be completed before leaving the house.
A mindful organised morning rhythm free’s the mind and body to approach the welcoming of the coming day with focus and clarity.
Do you have an Organised Mindful Morning Rhythm?
