Pine pollen from Pine Trees is a great supplement known for it’s adaptogenic properties, immune enhancing capability, metabolic balancing and as a hormone regulator. It can be harvested once a year for a short time in the spring from the Pine cones. How to harvest? Take a brown paper bag cover the cones and shake the pollen off into the bag. You can add to smoothies or create a tincture.

It should be noted that if you are taking a tincture of Pine Pollen and are female do use in moderation and smaller dose than recommended for males as it does stimulate testosterone levels. Test it out and adjust accordingly.

Spiritual Warfare

images.duckduckgo.com

We are in the thick of it now! This war is age old on the subtle spiritual planes and now we are at the stage where the Enemy is ramping up to pull as many souls as possible down into a state of decay, despair, illusion, and death- worshiping false Gods, participating in Occult practices, living nonspiritual material based lives. Often times souls are blocked/blinded and unaware of what they are doing. The truth is so blurred by the manipulation of the establishment that those who do not know truth and have a solid foundation in God are easily led astray into the depths of this dark and sinister agenda.

Enslavement of the human race for Eternity.

During these times of transition those who chose to live a Godly life, committed to serving God’s plan are under attack. It is important more than ever now to keep focused on God and to be very aware and discerning of everything. Nothing is as it seems and the negative power is hell bent ( ūüėČ no pun intended!!) on making sure you don’t find your way home to the One True Living God. The Enemy will distract you, defile you, harass you into a state of Fear, thwart you. The Enemy will use any possible way to keep you in deception and darkness, to keep you from Rising and living/bringing Heaven on Earth. Tactics include, temptation; often sexual or drugs, worship of money, adultery, Fear based thinking etc.

The plan of the Enemy to destroy God’s creation- that means the earth, the animals and ultimately you. We can see this happening in the world now as the new leader of America seeks to annihilate the environment, healthcare, food programs for the elderly and for children- blatantly disregarding humanity and Life.

He is serving and is a manifestation of the Enemy.

Many people feel a sense of hopelessness at this time which is why it is ever more important to ‚ÄúKnow Thyself‚ÄĚ, as Jesus said. You are a child of the One True God and by divine birthright your heritage is Health, Prosperity, Love, Freedom, Abundant life and Joy. This is God’s reality and when we step out of the cage, out of the Matrix and into the light of God we receive these divine blessings. The worldly things are an illusion and have no power over a child who knows God’s place within them. This is empowerment and NOTHING can harm or touch a sovereign child of God. That is a powerful thing and the Enemy is trying to keep you from knowing God, knowing who you are and from stepping into your power.

God threatens the Enemies power. A sovereign Child of God is a force to be reckoned with.

Jesus said ‚ÄúBehold I give thee Authority over the Power of the Enemy‚ÄĚ.

This is a powerful statement and one that brings immediate protection when under attack. If you are a seeker, as you try to rise, the Enemy strikes sending missiles in your direction- often on the spiritual plane- and sometimes in the events of your life experience to keep you down. It is so important to have your Armour, your arsenal of weapons against the Enemy. One such weapon is the Word Of God and Jesus’s teachings.

The above statement when said over and over like a Mantra will stop any attack dead in its tracks. I use it whenever I feel I am being attacked. Sometimes the attacks come as thoughts; negative, doubting, fear based thoughts are a clue one is under attack, struggles that are cyclical- patterns that keep repeating are an indication of the Enemy working in your life and blocking you from your Blessings.

God is Loving and wants you to live in joy, prosperity, harmony, and blessing. There is no struggle with God- although sometimes we are taught important spiritual lessons via some sort of lack or challenging situation, that is very different from a dark ominous cloud that blocks ones well being on an ongoing basis. Examples of this can be seen in financial strife/poverty, addictions, being accident prone, depression, ongoing health issues, disease. Anything that compromises your ability to receive God’s Blessings is a direct attack from the enemy and sheds light on where our lives have been infiltrated and hijacked.

I’m not going to get into details of how to be released of curses and the enemies’ stronghold in your life but I will leave links to my teachers who have saved my life- no joke.

SO, if you are a seeker of the truth and want to find your way home, be aware and study the scripture, the Word of God. Be willing to open your mind to possibilities that maybe you didn’t realize were there. The truth WILL set you FREE.

Be Well and Many Blessings!

Cleansing Detox-Berries! Melons! Fruits! Beets!

Day One juiced all that goodness there

Yesterday as I was planning my next juice fast for the Spring I felt the urge to start it now. Typically I am cleansing quarterly. In the past I have cleansed a min of 2x a year using botanicals and juice fasting. My longest vegetable juice fast was in 2010 of 40 days.

This time I am doing things a little different and initially was going to fast for 21 days. Serendipidously, as is always the case in my life, I came across Dr Robert Morse, ND on youtube while researching grapeseed extract (which btw is a powerful anti oxidant) I came accross another youtuber who had a video on her grapeseed juice fast and she got me onto Dr Morse. He has the same philosophy as myself in many ways, he’s a raw foodie who advocates the fruitarian diet, something that I was never sold on because of the sugars. Well, as it turns out what this man has to say is very wise and makes alot of sense. I will leave links at the end of the article if you are interested in his teachings as I am not going to get into that in this article. Let the master speak on this one.

Inspired, I got myself some blueberries, apples, mango and concord seeded grapes (the seeds and skins are what contain the magic) and began experiementing with combinations of fresh beet, carrot and ginger juiced and then blended with blueberries and apples, Beet carrot and ginger blended with blueberries and mango etc. The combinations are endless and you can get creative. I love the cleansing and blood building properties of beets combined with the powerfull anti oxidents in blueberries so these two are a staple in my juicing/ smoothy cleansing/fast. Seeing as I am in Canada we are not in the berry season so I am limited to frozen local berries which thankfully I have access to. At this point I am going day by day but am feeling like I may adopt this diet for the next while, who knows how long it will last..as long as I feel amazing. Today I had so much energy! Trained 2 hours at the gym..no problem business as usual.¬† This winter I was eating very clean as always but had incorprated more cooked foods, squashes, roots, black rice, and amaranth bread on occasion, raw fermented butter and yogurt because, well it’s winter, and it’s been colder than normal this year in the north west- we had snow for over a month! As a result of these heavy foods I was feeling kinda heavy and lower energy which is a red flag! Alert! Toxic build up the system.

Day Two-In these photos you see beet, carrot and ginger juice (mason Jar) which I used as a base with blueberries and an apple in the smoothie below. Yummy and vitalizing! Last photo is a combinaiton of mango blueberries with same juice base.

Right now I am supplementing with Grapeseed extract, Iodine, Schisandra berries, Organic Sulfur, Liquid minerals. To assist in cleansing I am taking Red Clover, Dandelion, Cleavers Milk thislte, Zeolites, Fulvic Acid, to clean the lymphatic and blood, heavy metals and radiation (which is all around us- that’s another article unto itself).

Can’t stress enough how essential it is to keep the biology squeaky clean. The world is getting more and more toxic and although we cannot avoid much of these toxins we can give our bodies the best nutrition available, eat less, higher quality foods; taking control of what we put into our Godly temples.

Sickness and disease are not normal and do not have to be our choice. If we wish to avoid illnesses and degeneration, we have to become more aware and understand the bodies innate ability to heal itself if and when supported and take the steps towards healing and health. We are miracles.

Just a wee side note…I want to share that I have only taken pharmaceuticals a few times in my life..as a kid. Since the time I had a choice, I stayed away from pharma completely and don’t go to allopathic doctors. The last visit, was the first in 10 years due to a torn ligament that needed documentation for legal purposes…I did not accept painkillers or X-rays that were recommended. My philosophy is this:

  • I AM my own doctor
  • I know whats best for my body
  • ¬† My Body will communicate when it is out of balance so that I can take measures to assist in homeostasis and when necessary I see my Chinese (TMC) doctor and consult a naturopath and herbalist.

When you keep your system optimal and have body awareness you don’t get sick…when the red flags show up you do something about it so as to prevent illness. Mother Nature provides us wtih everything we need to sustain life and to heal. Its that simple.

My focus for over 20 years now has been prevention. I am living proof it works. The Keys? Get to know you’re body, listen to what it’s telling you- symptoms as simple as a headache are signs of toxicity. Keep your body clean by regular fasting, juicing, cleansing and adopting at least a moderately raw food diet. With this approach you can radically slow down the aging process and avoid atrophy/disease.

Robert Morse ND

What to do with all that juice pulp? I make a warming detoxing broth out of it.

Put the pulp (here it is carrot, beet, ginger) in a large pot, enough to fit 2 litres of water, bring to a boil and then simmer. I have added red clover, dandelion root, fenugreek, corriander. Let simmer for two hours. Strain and compost the dead pulp. Makes a good warm drink to sip on all night and helps to keep my body warm and satisfy my savory taste buds.

Cheers to Health and Vitality!

The Slippery Slope of The Occult

1c3042bb2846a2b02df8ca55edc24a04

“Cause when them Devil come, them Devil comes dressed as light. Maybe they gonna fool the untrained mind but nobody I know is gonna bite” ¬†~ Prince, The Artist.

I’ve been called to write about what I know based on experience.

In my previous article the path of the disciple I outlined my experience as a seeker of spiritual truth. In it I mentioned that I was dabbling in the Occult without really realizing what I was doing and the doorway it was opening into confusion, pain, suffering and ultimately death.

Its pretty serious business and the Price? ¬†I’m not willing to pay.

Like many, I was drawn to the New Age Movement. Many seekers who have been turned off ¬†Christianity and the church due to centuries of manipulation, alteration and misrepresentation of the true word of God, often end up embracing the New Age teachings¬†looking for answers to life’s meaning and purpose. ¬†Unfortunately these new age teachings are adulterated just as the teachings of many of the Christian factions are, and have roots deeply embedded in ancient occult practices. If you have ever studied the Occult you will know that it goes back to antiquity and is steeped in symbolism, magik, Tarot, numerology, divination, idolatry and astrology. It teaches us how to master the physical realm through manipulation of forces-alchemy, idol worship and self serving. According to the word of God this is an abomination and a sin against God.

As a sensitive I was intrigued by the world of the occult as young as 12 yrs of age, communicating with and channeling what I thought was the angelic realm of Gods angels. I avoided anything that was too dark until one day I found myself being drawn to the Thoth Deck after being influenced by people in my life who were working with these practices. It looked harmless yet at the time I had the distinct feeling that I was toying with a dangerous path. ¬†I rationalized that because I am light, godly-devoted to God, had a daily meditation practice that it would not affect me. It seems crazy to me now yet I believe my soul needed to be led to this to know how powerful the dark forces are in their attempts to ensnare us. SO, I bought Alistair Crowley’s Thoth deck and even bought his book of Thoth!

As it turns out, I never did read the book and I ¬†used the deck for maybe 3 months until the day ¬†I realized something was very different in my life and I reached out to a friend for help (see article link top of page). I wasn’t feeling like myself and the red flag(s) was that I started to have a series of misfortunes out of nowhere and I began to feel helpless, abandoned and like an oppressive world was closing in on me. It felt like my connection to God had vanished, so what God was I serving?

The Devil/Kal/Satan is a clever being and will do whatever it takes to remain in control of this earth plane and enslavement of humanity. It was at this time in my life that I began to understand the true nature of evil and how real it is. These demons are powerful, seductive and can get in and taint the most godly people if they are not aware and discerning with a solid faith in Christ/God. I turned to the scriptures of the New Testament and started reading and listening daily to scripture- recommitting to God, repenting and inviting the Holy Spirit to live inside of me.I also, got rid of all Occult contact objects and anything to do with Occult practices. Everything changed and I had immediate relief from these terrors. ¬†Jesus said in Luke 10:19¬†“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”

From experience in these things I wanted to share because I see how dark the world has become in these times and it is ever so important to be empowered and suited up with God’s Armour for the spiritual battle that is ramping up. I also wanted to demonstrate how easy it is to get lured into serving the dark agenda, it doesn’t take much. The establishment is controlled by ancient secret societies, dating back to early Egyptian times, who practice black magic, witchcraft, sending out demonic gangs of spiritual beings- the fallen angels- that come dressed as light to allure you, tempt you to join them.

The great deception of this age- the mainstream media- which is owned by powerful elites, from music to movies is pushing the satanic agenda of world domination. The depopulation of the earth through toxins in the water, food,air and the enslavement of humanity. Wake up! Wake up!

The late great Derek Prince points out that the demonic beings are people without bodies- disembodied spirits that are everywhere waiting for the opportunity to “possess” a body. They get in through exposure to drugs, alcohol, deviant sexuality ( music industry) fear and violence ( Constant Wars, News Media, Hollywood). ¬†The mind controlled masses follow the mind controlled celebrities who are the puppets, the performers, the representatives for the occult who lure the masses in through the senses using overt deviant sexuality, money, power, vanity. Fame and Fortune comes at a very high price, you have to sell your soul to be a celebrity.¬†Everything we see in the establishment is a scam, a lie, a manipulation to confuse, distract, dis-inform and infect the minds of the people with fear and hatred, and to defile anything pure and true.

So it is. Be aware of that which you engage in and what you put your focus on…Eyes Wide Open. Use Discernment and stay in the light.

 

Peace!

OOOPS I Did It Again! Henna!!!

 

It’s all about the hair! After two years of growing out my hair post henna chop I did it again!

If you have followed my blog you will know in 2014 I put henna in my natural blonde hair. I went very red as you can see in a previous blog post (links are below). Anyways to get it out I had to cut my hair super short..first I did a moderately short pixie followed by a half inch long crop to get rid of the red. Here is the length of my hair now. I decided to do a henna cassia gloss last week- mostly because I was bored and needed a change this winter- my vision was strawberry blonde and I achieved it and am very pleased (the second photo is close to the actual color and in the sunlight it’s very strawberry).

The process of hennaing was something I missed…a hair ritual that not only conditions the hair but also makes it stronger and it just feels so good. As I am growing my hair long again (maybe 6 or 7 more inches) I want to be sure it is super healthy. I only co- wash and every other day (sometimes more) and shampoo with a natural gentle shampoo once per week. The only heat I use on my hair is blow drying it a few times a week and I try to go every other day without wetting my hair at all. Sometimes this is a challenge because I workout 5-6 times a week and sweat.

For more in depth info about henna and cassia see my previous posts and video on my experience  Henna on Blonde Hair and  Henna Conditioning 

To achieve this strawberry blonde color I used one part henna to 10 parts cassia mixed in warm hibiscus tea, squeeze of lemon, one cup of conditioner and about a 1/4 cup of olive oil. Let it sit for 75 min.

The trick now is to keep this color by doing the roots for 75% of the time and the rest of the hair for the remainder. It’s going to be an experiment and I really want to keep this light tint…I do not want dark red hair again.

Here is my natural color just prior to henna glossing!! Very light ash…I’m a Swede ūüôā¬†img_7066-2

Thursday’s Musings

cropped-235.jpg

As I grow upwards towards the light, towards the higher version of myself living in God’s plan, God’s will for my life, I realize that I know nothing in the larger perspective of the universe.

We have all heard the analogy that the spiritual path is a winding, meandering road with the purpose being the journey of growth and expansion not the destination.  To experience  the learnings with surrender, acceptance and gratitude we open the door for the unfoldment of our goals, our destination. Life is a series of destinations. The pearl lies inside the journey.

With this wisdom the path becomes much easier as we are more in tune with God’s plan and trust that God knows whats best for our lives, better than we do, and that we are loved and supported in all things. Whatever is happening is for our highest good. The more we let go and surrender the quicker we move through life challenges. How many times have we mis-created as a result of obstinate use of our will, not listening to the subtle voice of God’s guidance. When we lack trust and faith in life we are bound to make many mistakes getting lost, distracted and sidetracked from our purpose.

In this modern life with so many cleverly designed distractions and the disintegration of godly pursuits we are not taught to make time for God. Unless one is seeking to know thyself and has the wisdom to unplug from worldly pursuits, from making external pleasures and satisfactions the priority in life, it will be impossible to know God. To know God is to know thyself. To hear God we have to engage in meditation on his word and invite him into our lives and then we begin to develop a relationship with God. This is the most important of all relationships. The rewards are great, we find love, joy, peace and forgiveness and with God’s blessings our lives become so much more manageable.

What inspires you and brings you joy is your purpose. God will support you as you walk in courage to fulfill God’s purpose for your life in service.

The Path of The Disciple

 

footprints

Many years ago I had a spiritual awakening, at the age of 25, Jesus appeared to me in a meditation, held my hand and showed me his way- the path to GOD- sharing with me that I am one of his disciples. And let me say he is the most beautiful PURE light being I have ever seen and just being in his presence cleanses you!  Prior to this I had no spiritual discipline and arrogantly thought that if I met God then I will believe in God, both my parents were agnostic while growing up so I was not exposed to the church other than from my grandparents. As a child I did not have a good feeling about the church, I could see the hypocrisy- children are perceptive.

Was this meeting with Jesus my initiation onto the path of enlightenment?

Little did I know what was to change and alter in my life’s path but for certain no good could have come out of the lifestyle I had been living and the inevitable destruction that path would have led to.

This chance (or was it chance?)  meeting opened the doors to my seeking the truth which took me all over the place, studying Eastern traditions-Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, New Age woo woo (which blends the teachings of Christ with occultism and is a complete deception, a distraction away from God) and various other religious teachings. I kept the image of Jesus, from my life altering meeting with him, his essence and LOVE close to my heart through all of my learnings as a foundation and an example of what I am and how I wanted to be in the world. I did not consider myself a Christian however, as this still had religious connotations and represented a tarnished, manipulated establishment that I wanted no part in.

Instead I studied scripture on my own- specifically the New Testament and teachings of Jesus. These teachings resonated with my soul and triggered a deep knowing and understanding of this life and the times we are living in and how to navigate the perils. Truth resonates…you can feel purity.

It would take many many years of living and experiencing numerous trials and tribulations before I came to fully understand the discipline I needed to surrender my life to God, to cleanse my being of demonic influence in my life that was operating in the background, in the shadows.

For a long time I dabbled into Hinduism learning the teachings of Yogananda and other gurus from India- I thought the path of Yoga was it. Then I became immersed in the Radha Soami teachings of Master Kirpal Singh  for a time reading many of the teachings from this lineage which goes way back with many references to the teachings and life of Jesus.  As such Master Kirpal was leading me back home to the source of all.

In summer of 2016 after a rough patch lasting a few years I found myself spiraling down and I couldn’t understand what was happening to me. My thoughts were taking me to places I didn’t want to be and I was struggling to find my balance, my peace and God -my life raft- seemed to be nowhere in sight. I then reached out to a friend of mine who is a godly man and told him what was happening and asked him to pray for me because I knew that something beyond my control was infiltrating my life and mind. I mentioned to him that I felt that I needed clearing of the past, the ancestral lineage and that some dark force was affecting my happiness and joy. He reminded me of Derek Prince… Ah yes Derek Prince the wise spiritual teacher who teaches deliverance from evil, I once listened to one of his talks but at the time, although I found it interesting, I didn’t think that I had demons to clear! ¬†Well I will tell you that that very night I listened to his talk on How to be Delivered – I wrote down the step by step process which is from scripture and then did these things. I ¬†will say that there was an immediate release from the heavy feeling and sense of confusion and helplessness that I was experiencing. A lightness of being.

Since that moment I have not looked back and I am now not afraid to use the “dirty” word Christian because that is what I am. I have first hand experience with the Christ. My life has never been more secure and joyous- I am so grateful to have found my way home in this physical body and all the years of seeking and searching for the truth have led me right to where I never would have thought even though Jesus came to me that day in mediation. I do not belong to a church but rather find fellowship in the teachings as well as the community of godly people in my life. For me worship, prayer and meditation have always been something I do every single day, since my awakening at 25.

The reason for sharing my story is to paint the picture of the discipline needed to live a godly life and the responsibility of the disciple to be true to the teachings and to embody the essence of the Christ. We live in a time of great darkness and deception and it is so easy to succumb to the dark forces. It is everywhere- the Media  that controls the mainstream music industry, Hollywood, the sports industry; the military and governments of the world are all based on occult practices that are designed to keep the masses in the dark while manipulating their emotions, thoughts and actions. Creating fear and hatred in the hearts of mankind. I understand from my own experience just how easy it is for these demonic forces to get in and influence our minds. These spirits are just waiting for the opportunity to get inside a body and devastate/destroy lives; they thrive in the energy of fear, hatred, sexual deviance, drugs and alcohol, violence in TV and Film, perversion in the music industry, etc and you only have to be in the presence of these energies to be affected/infected.  Most of the world is under the influence of some kind of demonic forces unknowingly participating in satanic occult rituals that are prevalent in mainstream culture.

The truth IS stranger than fiction. Eyes wide Open.

In closing I will say that the path of the disciple is not an easy one, you have to have absolute commitment to serving God, be discerning, use all your strength, and really know thyself- people around you who are not on the path will not understand you, will oppose you and you may have to walk away from some relationships that do not support you.

The path of light is life altering and rewarding, it is filled with Joy, Freedom and Harmony..but it is not the easy path on this earth plane during this time of spiritual warfare- In the Dark Age.

To quote my hero- Prince Rogers Nelson, “Without God, its the Blind leading the Blind”
