Oneness...don't fight it...its EVERYWHERE.
(Not my pic unfortunately)
I've been trying to get in a fair amount of walking while I'm still here in the city.
However, its been really cold this week, and I havent been bundling up properly,
so somehow I acquired a sore and scratchy throat.
I honestly didnt even know if I was going to post about it, because I thought that it would show
some kind of weakness or vulnerability.
Sore throats...I got one two years ago when I was using the sauna quite a bit, then would immeadiately stand outside in the freezing wind. Sounds horribly stupid, I know, but I thought it would be like one of those hot/cold therapy things.
Well, it totally shocked my system, and it seems like all this winter-weather-walking has done it to me again. I had a tea tonight and that helped a bunch. I even did the sauna today, which was a complete joy. Sooooo warm on a cold winter's day. And sometimes you have to turn it on before you are ready so it warms up, but the Universe was looking out for me and had it all warmed up by the time I walked in. It was great. I love to meditate and work on breathing while Im in there. Its perfect.
Ive been doing these amazing morning juices lately.
Super simple, just half a tray of wheatgrass (my $7 a day habit...)
4 or 5 lemons, and 5 or 6 stalks of celery.
Not the best tasting, but you feel so grounded and calm after you finish it. Even as I start drinking it, I can feel the calmness setting in. Who knows...?
The funny thing is...all those lemons AND wheatgrass...I thought Id be invincible. Maybe
those hours and hours of coldness on the face and neck are just too much. I could be bedridden though, so a little scratchy throat isnt the end of the world. I'm grateful.
Ive started up the angstrom minerals again...never was quite sure if I noticed a difference...maybe I never did. Maybe give them a shot yourself and see if you like them. I dont mind them at all...just wondering about effectiveness. I always take them while Im juicing...remember...MULTI-TASK!
So thats the morning setup. Don't forget the MSM either...very crucial in my opinion. All this followed up a few hours later with a green smoothie and maybe some raw apple pie lately. Raw apple pie completely rules over cooked crapple pie. Then I usually round it out with some fruit. I did some durian that was in the fridge today, and am still waiting for my persimmons to ripen.
Those things REALLY demand patience. Some of these have been here for two weeks. Is it too cold in my room? I dont quite know...
Have an awesome week everyone, wherever you are. Juice some ginger to warm you up, and for all of you blessed to be in the more equatorial regions of the world, give a kind thought to all those poor souls stuck up near the permafrost.
Warmth and happiness for all...
