Are you breathing right?

“Great, another thing to think about? Now I have to worry about whether or not I’m breathing right?”

No! Haha, I know how you feel. But this is not about worry.

In fact, it’s hard to worry when you’re breathing right…

And let’s talk about that. Breathing right, I mean.

If your breath is the rhythm of your spirit, and your spirit is the energetic force in and around your body ( think of a force field or “the Force”, Star Wars fans ), then what beat are you dancing to?

Are you living your life to the rythm of Nine Inch Nails ( my friends loved this in high school, for some reason unbeknownst to me lol )?

Or are you living to Mozart?

1-3

Don’t take my music references too literally. The point is that the quality of your rhythm of breath matters; it can change your brain chemistry, just like the Mozart Effect. 

Breathing is also a main form of detoxification. When you practice diaphragmatic breathing – meaning belly breathing, rather than chest breathing – you oxygenate your body and accelerate the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and you speed up your enzymatic processes of digestion, immune function, and cell regeneration.

It’s no coincidence that children belly breath without thinking about it, and belly breathing is associated with anti-aging. It’s only when we experience trauma or when we become adults who are stressed under the weight of societal pressures and burdensome thoughts that we begin the unsustainable practice of chest breathing.

The good news is that you can retrain your body to breathe correctly!

Note that if you are a survivor of sexual assault you may need to seek therapy, EFT, or another form of energy or trauma release prior to beginning a new deep breathing or meditation practice. 

  1. To begin I recommend you find your sacred space. As I’ve said before, your sacred space can be a stolen moment in your closet while your kids play, or it can be on the beach – really anywhere. As long as the space is yours energetically, and you take care of it.

A messy closet with clothes haphazardly strewn about will not do, at least not in the long run. If you’re not taking care and consideration to create a space that is not free for the kids to run through, that is a good place to start.

Remember: your surroundings are a reflection of your mind. That’s okay if your mind is messy right now; we’ve all been there.

But you’re taking time to read this far, which means you’re ready on some level to UPlevel your life. Simplify. Detox.

Breathe. 

  • Start with a small space or cover in or near your home where you can go to breathe.
  • And when you have that space, dedicate a few minutes each morning to practicing your breath there. Observe it, don’t force it.
  • Place your hand on your belly and feel it move in and out. This gentle movement means you are consciously bringing your body into parasympathetic mode; in other words you are entering the nervous system mode of rest and repair. That’s what we want.

This is what will facilitate the detoxification and regeneration of you digestion, and your skin. You’ll look younger after a month of breathing, or so say the health experts of the world. In addition to personal testimonies and hundreds of years of scientific backing from Ayurvedic tradition, modern science recognizes that advanced glycation end-product ( AGE )  build up is reduced with a yogic lifestyle, the foundation of which is what?

Breath.

That’s right; AGEs are one of the biggest causes of wrinkles and premature aging.

I can tell you that breathing correctly helped my skin and anxiety to heal. 

So don’t get to particular about your breathing practice; don’t bring the need to be perfect at everything into this…this is entirely other. Just bring you, and get ready to connect with your inner child.

News flash: your inner child isn’t perfect; she tries new things and she leads with her heart.

Love ya,

Ashley

5 steps to changing your emotional state

Where do you live?

We all have a couple emotional states that we call “home”. Meaning, we fall back into these emotional states most often. Sometimes, we even subconsciously try to come back to these emotional states because it’s what’s become comfortable…healthy or not.

Tony Robbins relayed it best when he said that as humans, what we crave most of all is comfort; to remain constant in who we are, regardless of how we actually feel about that state of being.

Because change is scary and unknown.

It’s important for us to be conscious of the fact that animosity, resentment, envy, insecurity, and lack are all tempting “homes” ( seriously, they are addicting ). But living there eats away at our heart and soul from the inside out. It erodes our spirit, the very foundation of our health and feeling of wellness.

And here’s the deal: if you’re one of the few people brave enough to honestly look at yourself and evaluate your emotional “home”, that means you can do something about it! While financially you may not have the means to pick up right now and move to anywhere in the world of your choosing, you absolutely can choose anywhere you’d like to live emotionally.

Anywhere. And that’s pretty darn exciting to consider.

Five ways to MOVE out of your old mindset and into the new👇:

#1. Change the way you see everybody around you. Everybody. When we change the way we look at things, the things – and people – we look at tend to change somehow.

Everybody we encounter is dealing with something. Something hurtful, something crappy, and sometimes something devastating.

This idea might sound too simple, too plain to totally change your life and overall health.

But thought is the most powerful tool at your disposal.

And this – compassion – is truth.

No one deserves your animosity and nothing is worth crushing your own spirit.

#2. A daily practice of grateful meditation.

#3. Get up early and have an hour of power. This is often called personal development in NM companies, and it’s a habit of virtually all highly successful people.

#4. visualization. I’m a big fan of vision boards, and practicing visualization during meditation and exercise.

#5. Nutrition and exercise. Focus on alkaline nutrition, plenty of water ( not soda ), and aim to exercise 3 – 5 days per week.

What media can’t say about shots

If you’ve garnered most of your knowledge about vaccines from the news, friends, in-laws, and your family doctor, the following digits might come as a shock to you.

So far in the year 2018 the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program ( NVICP ) has paid out a total of $82, 940, 437.42.

You did indeed read that correctly:

$82, 940, 437.42 in compensation paid out to the families of vaccine-injured children and adults.

And ( here’s the kicker ) that’s not money that the pharmaceutical companies had to shell out – no, no, no.

Under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act ( NCVIA ) signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1986, vaccine manufacturers are held blameless for any injuries or deaths their products may cause.

So who foots the bill for this? You and I. That is money from a federally operated trust fund that you and I directly paid into via a 75 cent excise tax on each vaccine our child received.

In other words, vaccine injury is so endemic to our society that it’s actively anticipated and tracked by our governing healthcare entities, while at the very same time being denied or ignored altogether among the collective of media outlets aiming to shape our social narratives and belief systems.

If you believe that our yearly evolving vaccine program has been proven to be safe and effective, and that resulting injuries and deaths are rare and will never touch you personally, that’s because almost none of the actual disease stats or industry problems are highlighted in the mainstream media ( shout out to Tucker Carlson for going against the status quo and doing this interview ) .

Why? Probably because the pharmaceutical industry as a whole ( whose reign basically goes unchecked ) is the massive sponsor? Possibly because vaccine production alone constitutes a multi billion dollar industry? Follow the💸 and you’ll see…

Yeah, but I’ll listen to a doctor over ‘just a mom’ any day

You might also be surprised to learn just how much doctors do and don’t learn about vaccinations in medical school. 

Truth is, too often it’s doctors ( not all, but many ) who are the first to write parents off as “dumb”, simply for having valid questions or concerns. For a physician to behave in this way is wildly inappropriate, inacurate, and further proof that even doctors often do not entirely understand the concerns or risks involved with routine vaccination.

I think it’s important to highlight this behavior and dismissive attitude that is so rampant among the medical community for a couple reasons, and neither of which is to be divisive.

First off, when left in the dark this kind of paternalistic treatment of patients can only fester and continue. As it stands now, parents report feeling the most pressured, threatened, or even fearful to make an immediate vaccine choice within medical settings, when in reality nobody should be forced to make a medical decision such as this under any degree of duress.

The other point I have is more of a genuine question: if doctors aren’t fully educated about vaccines – their ingredients, how they interact with the immune system, and potential side effects – how do we keep accurate records of vaccine injury? If the majority of doctors are not even taught how to identify and report vaccine injury, and that 82, 940, 437 bucks is only a tiny fraction of what potentially could have been paid out, are we really getting the full story on vaccine safety? 

The truth would bankrupt the industry on the spot, hence the need for the 1986 NCVIA to begin with. Yet nothing is stopping you and I from being knowledgeable advocates for our families.

I encourage you to come to your own conclusion. Be informed. Know your right to informed consent. Know your rights to say no until you feel solid in your choice. I don’t know one single parent who has regretting doing so, and yet I know hundreds who regret consenting to vaccination without all the information. 

Don’t think for a second that you need to passively go with the flow, or that you should let the so-called experts do all the critical thinking for you! There is so much research and information to pour over before you can even know what your opinion truly is here. See just a few examples listed below.

If you are a parent facing this topic for the first time – or maybe again for the umpteenth time – remember this: your child was entrusted to you by God for such a time and a place as this.

Take the challenge, yell at your kids less

Woman+meditating+and+practicing+yoga+watching+the+sun.jpgWhy would I ever meditate?

If this is your initial thought, I get it.

Years ago my first mentor in holistic wellness told me I should be meditating at least ten minutes a day. At the time my children were only one and two years old, so while I gave her an emphatic “yes I absolutely will do that,” what I actually thought was, “why, and how?“.

Today I highly value my meditation time. I even get up early to do it, which is really saying something. But what can I say? Meditation ( and prayer, and a lot of other things ) took me from being a yelling mom to a mostly calm, much more self-aware and happy type of mom.

What it is

Meditation is the practice of quieting the mind to help the body switch from the sympathetic ( fight or flight ) nervous system mode, to the healing state of the parasympathetic nervous system ( rest and repair ). While most Americans today spend about 95% of their life with the sympathetic system engaged, we would optimally be living the exact opposite: spending 95% of our time in the parasympathetic mode and only 5% in fight or flight.

Meditation is the tool that will train your brain to remain calm and to take life slower and more mindfully, which is an excellent state to practice especially for those with ADHD. And if you want an overview of scientific literature to corroborate that claim, here you go.

Why it matters that you’re stressed

Here’s what no one taught us in school about stress: stress is stress is stress.

Meaning the body perceives all stressors in pretty much the same way. Packaged and processed foods pose a stress to the body, because it has to work much harder than is normal on digestion and damage control ( more on that later ). And in almost the same way, emotional stress or trauma poses a stress to your biochemistry and physiology, leading to acidity and – over longer periods of time – results in oxidative damage to your cells.

As human beings we obviously cannot avoid every form of stress that comes our way. You are going to run late for a meeting, you are going to lose your keys, you are going to feel overwhelmed by your kid’s schedule, and at least once a week you’re gonna feel angry with your spouse ( or we probably can’t be friends ).

You are going to eat foods that aren’t all that great for you here and there; the good news is that no one expects you to be perfect! Enter meditation…

Refer back to the definition of meditation I gave you a few paragraphs ago. Meditation is the tool. That’s it. It’s a tool that will not only help your nervous system switch into rest and repair ( which is essential to not going grey by thirty ), but it’s also the tool that will help you to develop clearer awareness about yourself, more patience for yourself, and as a result more patience for your kids and family.

How to do it right

Try meditating for 3-5 minutes a day this week. And by the way, meditation doesn’t have to look like anything fancy. Gently close your eyes, or keep them open. Sit quietly with your thoughts, observe your thoughts, and observe the thoughts you have about your thoughts.

Withhold judgement; and acknowledge judgment that comes to pass anyways. Meditation is somewhat about discipline, and mostly about being, and allowing yourself to simply be. It’s about listening to your inner voice without distraction. It’s about finding time to feel your breath in a culture that has forgotten breath feels like anything at all.

And if you take this assignment seriously, I can promise you one thing: you will learn something about yourself this week. Perhaps you’ll know your children or your spouse on a clearer level. Perhaps your spiritual fire will be reignited.

And perhaps you will finally feel simply content.

Will you be taking the meditation challenge this week? Tag or share with a friend who will join in on the peace with you. Holding yourself accountable is half the journey.

Why you should rethink the Fitbit

( Video property of ‘Generation Zapped’ )

Once upon a time it was common practice to use shoe store X-ray machines. We just didn’t understand the dangers of common exposure to radiation back then.

Similarly with smart devices📲💻 and Wi-Fi today, the population hasn’t yet been given the full story about how these massive amounts of radiation are affecting our health outcomes.

EMF radiation being something we can’t see, it’s almost difficult to conceptualize it as a possible health hazard. So for a really crazy visual of what’s actually happening around us, check out Luis Hernan’s photographs.

And I know what you’re thinking: don’t deliver bad news without a solution, right? Well I 100% agree.

So while we can’t avoid all radiation today, we can certainly protect ourselves. For starters:

  • only put your phone to your ear when absolutely necessary ( opt for speaker phone ), avoid wireless headphones, and do not wear it on your body.
  • Look into EMF protection. Safespaceprotection.com is one resource for products and educational information.
  • consider ditching the digital Fitbit and smartwatch: both are truly counterproductive to your health. Not only are you strapping EMF radiation directly to your body which disrupts your energy meridians and nervous system ( if you absolutely need more anxiety in your life, this is a good thing ) but heavy metal exposure is associated with Fitbit use as well.

It’s not well-known that heavy metals can be absorbed through contact with the skin, however they can and are. Your skin maintains a fairly acidic Ph of 4 – 5.5, and this creates an environment in which you can actually leech metals from a direct-contact device such as the Fitbit. This seems to be the case in the 2014 recall, wherein an estimated 9,900 were injured ( blistered or irritated ) by the Fitbit Force.

As with all health decisions, this comes down to personal choice. However it’s worth taking a closer look and doing a little research here. With a thorough investigation you might just find that a Fitbit – or other smart device – is more counterproductive to your health than it is beneficial. For instance, if additional EMF exposure resulting from your Fitbit lowers your energy and increases your anxiety, will your sleep be negatively affected? Will you stress eat more?

Two important considerations, since they both directly affect your quality of life and weight, and non-coincidentally most people use a Fitbit specifically to improve both.

Below I’ve listed a handful of solid, unbiased research articles on EMF exposure to get started with.

As always, I don’t advocate that you do or you don’t; rather that you have all the information needed to make the right choice for your health! After all, who cares what’s popular on the market right now; you and your family’s health and saftely must come first.

Peace, happiness, and health,

Ashley.

Where do you live…emotionally?

This idea might sound too simple, too plain to totally change your life and health.

But thought is a powerful tool.

No one deserves your animosity and nothing is worth crushing your own spirit.

So it’s worth asking again: where do you live?

Gingerade natural cold remedy

Since I’m seeing a lot of people miserable with colds and coughs right now, it’s seems a great time to share my favorite secret recipe for cold relief.

Well, I’ve actually shared the recipe before, so it’s no secret. But if you’ve yet to try it for yourself, the awesome feeling and taste of this juice are still out of your hands!

And while green juices – and leafy greens in general – are fantastic for respiratory health, sometimes you just don’t feel like a green juice when you’re sick.

Sometimes you really want something sweet, am I right? And preferably that something sweet won’t set you back a few days in your recovery.

Because that’s the issue with a lot of cold lozenges and remedies, even the ones of the natural persuasion. They tend to contain refined sugars ( usually under the name of organic evaporated Caine juice ) which heavily suppresses your immune system.

Enter Carrot Juice: carrot juice is a fantastic rescue for congestion and lung distress. Yes, it’s high in sugar, however don’t buy into the assumption that all sugar is created equal. It’s not! In fact your body runs on glucose, but that’s another story. And you can always make it less sweet by adding fewer carrots or oranges if you like.

Professor Richard Baybutt discovered that vitamin A reduced lung inflammation while studying emphysema. Eating a diet rich in foods containing beta carotene, the precursor to vitamin A, can help maintain lung health.

Combine the healing power of carrots with celery and ginger juice, and you’ve got a powerful tonic to bring your body back into an alkaline state wherein your immune system can really get to work.

This drink is best in the morning or afternoon. It’s going to allow your cells to create energy and your stomach to digest all your food better throughout the day.

I hope you enjoy!

Is being offended a habit to quit?

IMG_6947.PNGHas it ever occurred to you that people are addicted to being offended?

Honestly I see it as a big part of our culture, and not politically specific but rather a trend across party lines.

It was Dr. Wayne dyer who testified years ago that most people he encountered were actively looking for things to be offended by in their daily lives. I’d say that’s pretty accurate, from my perspective.

So, what does it really mean to be offended? Why are we hooked on it? And who cares if we are?

Being offended can mean two things

  • An idea that has become part of our core identity is being threatened. And that really ticks us off, and probably subconsciously freaks us out.
  • We aren’t actually secure and solid in our beliefs and therefore are attached to feeling supported by others in upholding what we stand for. We crave approval.

And I don’t know that anyone can say this for sure, but it’s my guess that we are hooked on being offended because it’s what we know. Simple as that.

It’s part of how we all learned to relate to people and function in society. It’s easy to get trapped in destructive cycles that have no real rhyme or good reason, other than providing a rush.

For instance, there are two types of people who read my blog: people who connect with my message and seek alternatives in healing, and people who like being offended by me. Ha!

And it’s the first group that will resonate with the need to stop being so offended all the time.

The issue with being offended is that it’s an act of both selfishness and self sabotage. When we feel offended, we are focused on ourselves. We’re focusing not inward, but outward on protecting the fragile outer layer of ourselves that we pretend is so strong. 

Usually in this emotional state we either go about our day with judgement as fuel, or we name our opponents and pick them apart, tear them down with inflammatory insults, and lift ourselves higher.

Whereas if we approached someone with an understanding heart, looking to share why we believe something, because we care about them, it’s almost impossible to not change at least a few hearts.

And the reality is this: we can choose to begin looking inward, to the purest part of our heart where Spirit talks, to find a peace that leaves us unattached to the rantings of the world.

Through learned stillness, through breathwork and prayer, we can do this.

We can learn to let people carry on with their daily lives, wishing them nothing but wellness, and peace. This is an important part of our personal peace and wellness.

As the saying goes, “As within, so without”. In other words, feelings that you harbor for others, is what manifests in you. For better health, or for worse.

We can develop a deeper, less judgmental love for the people around us, and this is what our communities, families, and strangers deeply need. This is the difficult daily workout – a great calling that we can choose to answer.

Or…we can continue to log onto Facebook looking for an easy reason to be pissed. It’s up to each of us.

Free to be healthy, free to choose whatever path calls to us. I choose health, freedom, and the path of true love. If you’re reading this, I think you probably work at that too. 

Hugs’n health, Ashley.

No Bake Chunky Pumpkin Soup

Vegan 
Chocolate 
Bunny Shake-2.png“No bake soup? What the heck?”

I know, right??

But it’s an awesome thing. Well, I don’t know if it’s a “thing” yet, but it should and will be.

I’ve adapted the no bake soups in my home in honor of raw soups, which is totally a thing, in case you didn’t know. I’m just not big on them.

Anyways, I love three things: warm comfort food, quick recipes, and nourishing dishes that my kids will actually eat and ask for more of. No bake soups – and this one in particular – meet all those requirements.

I hope you enjoy as much as we do!

What you will need

  • 1/2 small sugar or “pie” pumpkin ( usually found in the organic produce section in winter and fall months )
  • 1 small to medium butternut squash
  • 5 medium to large organic carrots*
  • 1 small organic onion
  • 1/4 head of organic cauliflower
  • 1 – 2 cloves organic garlic
  • 1 head of organic celery*
  • 4 organic white potatoes – sweet or regular or
  • 1 1/2 large organic orange sweet potatoes*
  • 1 can organic unsweetened coconut milk or
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • Unrefined celtic sea salt to taste
  • Herbs to taste – I used Braggs Organic Seasonings, rosemary, thyme, red pepper, and black pepper
  • 1 pack of sugar-free hotdogs* from Wellness Meats online ( regular hotdogs are a listed carcinogen by the World Health Organization ) or
  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • A high-powered blender like Vitamix or a Ninja. I’m a loyal Vitamix-er.

Most important to buy in organic*

Turn on an uplifting podcast and chop

  1. Chop the pumpkin and squash into 1″ squares. I remove the outer skin.
  2. Open coconut can. You should see that the cream has separated from the milk; scoop out the cream out and put it in the blender along with the squash and pumpkin cubes. You can either save the coconut milk ( I save mine for making kefir ) or pour it in too.
  3. Fill the blender up with about 3 cups of filtered water ( this soup is very forgiving and it doesn’t need to be exact ).
  4. Add seasonings to the blender.
  5. Secure the lid and blend everything together, starting on low and ending on high, until everything is puréed nicely together in a pumpkin smoothie.
  6. Pour your pumpkin smoothie into a safe cookware ( another post ) pot that can hold a lot of food 🙂
  7. Press the garlic and scoop into the pot.
  8. Chop the other veggies and add them to the pot too. At this point you can turn on the stove to medium and almost completely cover the pot with a lid.
  9. You can chop your Wellness Meats hotdogs and add them as the veggies begin to get soft or
  10. You can add your quinoa to the mix about 15 minutes prior to turning off the stove.

Cook about 20 – 25 minutes or until veggies are slightly soft.

This meal is great because it’s packed with fiber and nutrients, and due to it’s alkalizing pH content, it’s calming to the nervous system.

And just a tip, if you want to make this meal extra calming either for your kid’s evening jitters or for your holiday anxiety, opt for the quinoa over a meat option. Quinoa is an energetically calming food and packed with protein, making it the perfect nighttime food.

And I hope you see what we just did there: we made a dish that is healthy, and hopefully that you and yours will love. Pumpkin is a favorite food of mine to work with, and not in pies, because it’s such a great healer.

Loaded with Vitamin E, essential for skin repair and elasticity, and full of beta carotene which is the precursor to precious, natural Vitamin A, it’s a great food for anyone who needs to heal scar tissue, stay young, and maintain eye health. Hellooo.

And by not baking the pumpkin prior to cooking it in the stove, which is usually the case with veggie soup bases, we preserved some of the important nutrients that usually get lost in the cooking process, such as the delicate Vitamin C and that beautiful beta carotene.

You know how when you cook your brightly colored veggies they sometimes get dull and brown or greyish? That’s the loss of important nutrients. So it’s important to make the connection between beautiful, vibrant colors and nutrition, and to learn how to cook our food so that we can benefit from all it has to offer!Vegan

What every parent should know: Special Masters and NCVIA

image1 (35).JPGI was just listening to the Center for Disease Control’s ( CDC’s ) live stream council meeting the other day, as they, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices ( ACIP ), and their guest speakers, attempted to decide on the recommended vaccination schedule for 2018. Which vaccines to try on pregnant women ( there’s almost no safety testing there, of course, and what little has been done is surprising ) and which to add to the already lengthy Recommended Childhood Immunization Schedule.

What most parents don’t know is that a brand new schedule is created and issued in this way every year. So, in order for your child to be considered “up to date” on his or her immunizations, their records would need to be compliant with the current year’s schedule.

This also got me thinking that I’d like to share a bit of history with you that is very relevant to this whole topic.

Get a load of that picture above showing the difference in schedules from 1986 up until now ( 2017 ). WOW is a natural reaction.

Your second reaction might be to ask, “What changed?”.

Here’s the history: In 1986 President Ronald Reagan – under threat and pressure from vaccine manufacturers who were, at the time, drowning in injury lawsuits and debt – signed into law the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act ( NCVIA ). This act eliminated all financial liability of the pharmaceutical companies producing the vaccines, stripping parents of their rights to sue for compensation in the tragic event of a vaccine-related death or injury of a child.   

Under the new law, vaccine manufacturers had more wiggle room to begin the fast-tracking process ( lacking proper study ) of new vaccine products, and the schedule exploded in the following years, not surprisingly in correlation with a rise in autoimmune disorders, neurological disorders, allergies, obesity, and other childhood illnesses. 

Under the NCVIA was born the Nation Vaccine Injury Compensation Program ( VICP ). This is a “no-fault” system under which parents must now appeal a special vaccine court, or court of 12 appointed Special Masters ( how creepy and Orwellian does that sound? ) in order to receive any compensation. This process takes years to go through, and parents describe it as an absolutely awful experience wherein they are treated like criminals.

In my work prior to becoming a Certified Vaccine Education Specialist I studied the law, as well as this court process.

Cases are easily tossed out and claims dismissed if they do not meet very specific timelines and guidelines. And twenty-five thousand dollars is the maximum amount a parent can receive in compensation for the vaccine-related death of a child.

Even so, thus far over 3.3 Billion dollars have been paid out to the families who have managed to prove their cases in vaccine court.

And as it happens YOU pay into the vaccine injury compensation fund with a 75 cent tax on every vaccine your child receives.

In conclusion, I’ll leave you with the following questions to ask yourself, or for you to ask your doctor:

  • If vaccine injury is rare, why did the NCVIA need to be created?
  • If vaccine injury is almost a non-issue, why do I pay a 75 cent tax per shot into a fund that directly cushions manufacturers from financial loss due to injury claims?
  • With this knowledge, isn’t it time we come together and stand up for more stringent regulations and proper vaccine safety testing, rather than the safety of pharmaceutical companies?
  • Where is the incentive for vaccine manufacterurs to enure the safety of their product?

What do you think?
