Real dangers in using aluminum foil

Real dangers in using aluminum foil

Since 2012, scientific studies (International Journal of Electrochemical Science and others) have conclusively proven that aluminum leaches into food when you cook your food in aluminum foil. Just how much appears to depend on how high a temperature you cook at and the acidity of the food you are cooking, as well as spices used. The higher the temperature, the more acidic the food and the more salt used, all increase absorption. This is one of the main ways you get aluminum into your system.

When you don’t want to deal with something and you want to avoid it you move into behavior to distract yourself from it. That creates a habit or pattern that can become an addiction. Anything can become this distraction. The possibilities are limitless. You can distract yourself through work, social media, shopping, phone calls, as well as the addictions you commonly recognize; alcohol, drugs, pornography, food, gambling, sex.

3 Crazy Visits to a Meditation Center

3 Crazy Visits to a Meditation Center

My mind was always going 100 miles a minute. Many years ago a friend took me to a meditation center because she thought I really needed it. She was wise. I would have been the poster child for a place like that if I had done the work. Well, that didn’t happen. I went 3 times. It was a pattern; I took guitar lessons for 3 weeks (after paying for 10), I went to the gym for 3 weeks (after paying for a year), and I got married for 12 years (after saying it was forever). Good God, my inability to stick with it is expensive.

Mindfulness and Money

Mindfulness and Money

Abundance is an aspect of consciousness. It is not created. It is uncovered or revealed or allowed. It already exists as an aspect of who you are. Fully expanded consciousness will automatically manifest abundance because abundance is its nature. If you purify yourself and expand your consciousness, abundance will manifest, effortlessly and naturally. In an expanded state you will intuitively know and believe that your abundance is assured because you are completely in touch with your true nature and then all of nature will conspire to create your abundance.

Leaving the city for the organic farm: Green Acres Here I Come!

Green Acres Here I Come!

This is a true story: For 30 years I was a commodity trader and made millions of dollars.

Mindfulness and Sex

Mindfulness and Sex

There is so much wrapped around the subject of sex; social norms, morality, religion, fear, addiction, habits, pleasure. It becomes almost impossible to strip all of that away and really look at what authentic expression, natural expression means. You need discrimination to look deeply and know who you authentically are. You are a unique expression and as unique expression no one will fit into the social, moral or religious mold exactly. One person will be more intellectual, another more emotional, another in the middle. Your uniqueness will affect sexual orientation and expression.

How to discover Who You Are

How to discover Who You Are

Who we are is always being reflected back to us in our interactions with others. We are only capable of seeing love in another if we experience that love in ourselves first. And the same goes for fear, anger, hatred, and judgement. Every person we meet is always evoking something within us. What we are seeing in the other is what is in us. Life is about projection and reflection. Our judgments of others are what is inside us.

The teaching on “JOY” that can change your life

The teaching on “JOY” that can change your life

We seem to only experience joy when we get a desire fulfilled, remember a great time or have a sensory experience we find pleasant. We always seem to connect joy to an outer experience. But there is no joy inherent in an outside thing or experience. Joy is the natural experience of the Self and joy is available only in experiencing the Self.

A Snail's Tale

A Snail's Tale

By Joy Jacot

I recently saw an article about Jeremy the snail. This snail is unique – one in a million actually, because his shell curls counterclockwise – placing his sexual organs on the left. Snails have no gender, but in order for them to mate, their organs must line up. Each and every one of us is unique in our own way. In some cases that may set us apart from others – and yet there is always a reason and a gift as nothing happens without purpose in the grand scheme.

Mindfulness and Stress

Mindfulness and Stress

Stress happens when a system is out of balance. When something is too loose or too tight, when there is too much rest or too much activity or when there is too much attachment and resistance and not enough flow and allowing, stress is created. Stress can be physical, mental or emotional and is also part of what is called density; unresolved emotional content, experiences and conditioning. It is vibrational, dense and energetic at its core.

Mold and What it is doing to You

Mold and What it is doing to You

The most common household molds are the black ones on your shower curtain and in the corners of your shower, the white fuzzy kind that grows in the damp, dark places, especially basements, and the slimy, sometimes orange kind that can appear in sinks drains. Mold can be black, orange, white, purple or green. It needs moisture to grow, and it can be dangerous. Mold reproduces by releasing spores into the air and that can affect your lungs.
