#womenarenotmeat

Standard

In regards to the movement #womenarenotmeat

The ads, movies, commercials, women genital / facial mutilations, throwing of acid on face / body with intent to deform, domestic violence action against women (and men), dehumanizing, and so on degrading women (and men) are symptoms of what is going on in our world today.

All of the above are NOT the root of the problem.

We, women (and men), need to realize that we are also responsible for this happening as we have been standing idly by; by being silent, being competitive with / looking down / degrading / gossiping about / comparing / minimizing other women (and men) and ourselves to make ourselves feel good, to make / allow men and women to LIKE and USE; NOT LOVE us based on our negative and abusive behavior towards ourselves and each other.

Not to mention, allowing men and women to treat us thusly by these three vastly outdated statements / beliefs: “boys will always be boys,” “women are always mean and / or jealous of other women,” and also not to mention using religion as “this has always been the way based on our religious beliefs” for atrocious actions against young girls and women (and young boys / men) – those are LIES we tell each other and ourselves because we feel “powerless” in the face of these three seemly innocuous statements / beliefs.

I’m here to state: WE ARE NOT POWERLESS! We have always had power to CHANGE and CREATE but we were too afraid of what others thought of us as we ALL want to be ACCEPTED AND LOVED. So we would do whatever it takes to be loved and accepted.

There is no need to do whatever it takes as we have ALWAYS BEEN LOVED AND ACCEPTED by our own Spirit and our Creator!

We have also allowed men and women to objectify us into just a few parts instead of viewing us as whole woman (and man) and ignoring what lies within beyond the exterior. Now, far too many young girls and women (and young boys / men) believe that we have to dress either practically naked or completely covered to be noticed and respected by men and women. When the truth is, when we do that, men and women do not respect us nor do we respect ourselves because we perpetuate the idea of our body, our specific parts, and our appearance / clothes are what makes us women (and men) and that is vastly far from the truth.

WE ARE NOT INCLUDING LOVE IN ANYTHING: this is the root of the problem.

It’s time for young girls / boys, and men / women of all ages to stand up and say ENOUGH! through our actions. Start raising ourselves to love and respect ourselves before we can expect love or respect from others. It always begins within first. How can we expect respect and love from others if we will not do that for ourselves first?

Girls and women (and boys / men), please stop giving away what is sacredly yours and creating children without Divine Love in the hopes you gain love and respect willy nilly – it doesn’t work that way! We each are a Sacred Divine gift for ourselves and your Beloved One.

For men and women who have children, teach BOTH boys and girls to respect and love themselves within and that will automatically translate to the outer world and change has already happened when LOVE is part of all things.

Lastly, can you imagine 7 Billion plus human beings regardless of what gender they are, if they all have love and respect for themselves first and for each other, then we wouldn’t see any of these things we see in today’s world? Nobody would be busy trying to be unauthentic, conform, fit in, distract themselves from their true potential, skills, and talents that they can each contribute to the world for the better and living their purpose here on this beautiful Mother Earth. Let your inner Light SHINE!

LOVE YOURSELF AND EACH OTHER!

Personal Power

Standard

The 1 percenter, oligarchy, any establishments (government, religion, man-made beliefs like race, class, economic, nationality, etc.) established by man has succeeded in convincing the majority of you that you have no power and that you are incapable of effecting change in the world because you have given your power away to these beliefs / platforms. Also, because you depend on the so-called people in positions of “power” to do the right thing, to do something that you expect or ask them to and then you get outraged because they don’t then you talk about removing them from office or whatever action, but you don’t. If you do succeed in removing them from office, someone else potentially worse can take office because you still have given your power away to someone else because you have bought into what they’ve said that they’ll DO FOR YOU or agreed with what the “party” ideals you are supporting, for example.

If you are fully centered within and ARE FULLY LOVE centered, then NOBODY OR ANY ILLUSIONS / MAN-MADE ESTABLISHMENTS has any control over you as you keep all of your personal power. Hence, you do not have to make any agreements unless you choose to do so. Basically, what I’m trying to get at is that we do not need to wait for governments or anyone to make the world a better place for us because we can do it ourselves TOGETHER – WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TOWARDS PEACE & LOVE NOW!

We are all of ONE energy, whatever the majority gives attention to is what is happening in this world as that’s collective consciousness so why should you be surprised to see how the world is today? The majority wants security through violence, wars, and utter exclusion – so why are you surprised and outraged to see what is happening today?

What is happening externally ALWAYS BEGINS FROM WITHIN. AS WITHIN IS ALWAYS MANIFESTED EXTERNALLY.

How do you expect the world to be a better place for you, for your family and everyone else if you choose to reside in Fear and violence and expect to see Peace & Love? And if you choose to not do YOUR work within yourself but expect others to do it for you or expect others to change and believe that you’ve “won” by forcing the other to change for you by saying basically “I’ll stay in Fear, but you have to be Peace” – does that make sense?

If you don’t want to do the work and continue to feed into the current energy of the world, by all means do that if that’s what you choose. You can always choose otherwise at any moment.

We are all in this together.

And there is ONE EARTH. That’s another way that they succeed in convincing you that you don’t have power is the belief that you can always go somewhere else – be it colonizing another planet or going to heaven and you don’t have to take care of the Earth as “come on she doesn’t have a soul – same as my enemies” type of thinking, so that same belief is also applied to other human beings like we treat each other as we’re easily disposable just like Earth is. NOBODY is disposable and every single one of us have unique contributions to the world that no one else can do for us as we are all one of a kind but at the same time, we are ONE. What we do to other, we do it to ourselves.

Please choose to have LOVE instead of hatred & fear in our thoughts, words, feelings, and Heart. It is through Love that we ALL can know Peace. This truly begins with YOU.

WAR AGAINST “INSERT ANYTHING HERE”

Standard

We believe that when we say or do in war against whatever, that it is effective in resolving the conflict but it is not effective and actually increases the conflict.

Why?

Everything is energy and is of vibrational frequency.

What you focus on – you get more of what you focus on.

So if you are fighting “against” something, then you actually get more of what you DON’T WANT because your vibrational energy is “resisting” and is actually negative. So it’s no wonder that war on drugs, war on x, y, or z isn’t effective.

I have learned that it is easier to not resist because what you resist actually persists. That’s an easy way to remember whenever you start feeling like you are resisting against something to stop and step back.

STOP RESISTING. Change your focus from what you don’t want to what you do want.

Presto – the vibrational energy changes instantly. From negative to positive.

And changes what you end up manifesting.

So therefore, be full of gratitude and make sure you are focused on what you DO WANT and the rest will just fall away for lack of attention and energy.

So instead of fighting against war – focus on PEACE.

Fighting against GMO’s – focus on growing your food. sharing organic food and creating community.

Complaining about that there’s no kind people in the world – BE ONE!

Much LOVE & Peace to each and every one of you!

Memorial Day 2014

Standard

It’s a day of remembrance of Fallen Ones from all the Wars.

The current slogan is “Freedom isn’t Free” to justify the Wars and in turn causes Human Beings to be Fallen. And it causes Humanity to be distracted from the true purpose of Life and be caught up into something false and for destructive purposes instead of creating.

In all of Humanity’s history has War ever truly brought True Peace and Inner Happiness to each and every one of us Human Beings? Has military force brought lasting Peace?

No, it hasn’t. War is usually used to further a few select people’s purpose – usually for resources, land, and profit; but not for the whole of Humanity.

Weapons are used for destruction. Weapons can be used as guns, knives, or even words in negative ways be it thought, spoken, or written as words have power.

Yes, words have power – like “Freedom isn’t Free” and “God Bless America”.

Speaking of God Bless America. WHY do we need to believe that God only blesses America? Isn’t the rest of the world deserving of blessings from God, also? WHY not God Bless the WORLD!?

These kind of thinking and beliefs are a big part of the problem and perpetuates the violence against other Human Beings everywhere… this is not a matter of us versus them – this is the purpose of these strongly charged slogans and makes us unthinking and kind of act like “mob mentality” that makes us say “Oh, they deserved it because of x, y, or z…” like for example: Drone strikes in the Middle East – they have killed lots of innocent men, women, and children and we basically shrug our shoulders and say – not our problem. But, if something happens to us personally as “Americans” – we get unbelievably and perversely outraged and want those who are responsible heads’ off with delight and attack other countries and people with extreme fanaticism and abandon.

We are all God’s children first and foremost. Before our purported religion, before our nationalistic & cultural label and pride, before any type of social-constructed labels whose purpose is to separate us into ever smaller groups and creating these “us versus them” mentality.

What I see today is the result of these “collective” negative & hateful thinking and feelings that have existed and continue to exist today which is now the result that we see and we lament “why is it like this today?” Now, you know.

Now you know…. each and every one of us has a choice today, now, to choose to change things around collectively to make the world a better place for ALL of us or we can choose to continue on the path that Humanity on the whole has chosen thus far with the hate and fear of each other.

We are ALL interdependent and share a collective consciousness that we can all tap into for the greater good OR for greater harm to ALL. We are not isolated or unaffected by our actions or others’ actions. We are responsible for each others’ well-being as the quote says “We are our brother’s keepers”.

FREEDOM IS FREE. It is our natural & spiritual Birthright from OUR Creator. The Freedom isn’t external to start with, it starts WITHIN!

Change always begin within. So choose to be free of your shackles within from your fears, your limitations, your beliefs that perpetuates harm instead of JOY, HAPPINESS, & PEACE WITHIN.

When you are changed within and filled with Joy, Happiness, and Peace – there would be no thought of harm towards any living being on Earth. It then ripples OUTWARD from within and manifests in the world and in the collective consciousness.

Much LOVE & Peace to each and every one of you.

Extended Breastfeeding & Natural Immunity

Standard

Extended Breastfeeding and Natural Immunity goes hand in hand. The average world-wide (with the exception of the United States and European countries) weaning age of children is 2.5 to 7 years of age.

It is very interesting that the average age of weaning is 2.5 to 7 years of age because the natural immune system fully goes “online” at approximately 2.5 years old. What I mean by the immune system going “online” is that at birth, the child’s immune system is fully functional BUT not “reacting” yet.

Let me explain a bit further. Let me try to paint a picture here: Imagine that you have entered a very new environment and that your body has no idea of what is safe and what isn’t safe. So the mother breastfeeds her child and passes on immunity through the milk and as the newborn grows and becomes an infant then toddler, their bodies are exposed to various germs and diseases from their explorations and exposure to people and places in the world and their immune system is learning and being programmed for what is safe and isn’t safe. Breastfed babies are usually much more healthier with less incidences of illnesses per year compared to their non-breastfed peers.

Breast milk is completely made for human babies with THOUSANDS of ingredients that are perfect for every stage of the child’s development as the child grows. Whereas formula is made with approximately 8 basic ingredients with synthetic minerals and vitamins added from birth and onwards.

Not only that, it helps the child psychologically, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually thrive being breastfed and bonded with their mother and ensures their very survival and the ability to fully thrive beyond the newborn, infant, and toddler years.

The other factor is “vaccinations”. As I stated above, the baby has natural immunity system that isn’t “reacting” for the first 2.5 years as it’s being programmed. However, if a parent chooses to vaccinate their child without realizing this basic premise, then their child’s immune system is being forced to react – continually react – from vaccinations from birth and onwards until vaccinations stop at a much later age. When a baby’s immune system is forced to continually react with multiple shots at every visit, then there’s a lot of inflammation everywhere in the body, especially in the brain, when the brain should be focused on rapid development for their first months & years of life but it’s forced to deal with the the reaction from the vaccines.

Vaccines does not touch the natural immune system that we are born with because vaccines bypasses a lot of the natural immune system layers & processes, therefore, vaccines creates a man-made immune system. This is what the immunologists actually studies because they still do not have full understanding nor idea of how the true natural immune system works A-Z. So it’s not very surprising that there has been an increase in diseases like auto-immune diseases, cancers, allergies, autism, disorders of all kinds, and so on with the vaccines and with the numbers of vaccines increasing annually.

One shot of any vaccine, already far more than exceeds FDA allowable limits for many of the ingredients and yet, our children are being given so many multiple vaccines at one sitting starting right at birth and onwards until the teen years so it isn’t rocket science to put two & two together and see what is happening to our children. Vaccines does not confer long-term immunity compared to natural immunity which does confer lifetime immunity. It is also very interesting that children are aggressively sought after for vaccines compared to adults as the rates dramatically drops off for vaccinations. Another food for thought is: with natural immunity & diseases, you just have to deal with the situation right then & there and get lifetime immunity compared to receiving shots and dealing with “the after effects” of these shots for years and potentially for life and also there is the possibility of never being exposed to that specific disease in your lifetime. If you want to talk about herd immunity, the already vaccinated groups are usually where outbreaks & epidemics originates from and has higher percentages affected compared to the non-vaccinated so that busts the herd immunity myth. The Amish is a great example to point to as they’re not vaccinated and yet, they do not experience outbreaks or epidemics – and the Amish does interact with people from outside their communities so there are ample opportunities for disease to strike.

Lastly, I’d like to bring up co-sleeping & baby wearing as babies are meant to be close to the mother or the primary caregiver for their first months & first years of life to ensure their survival and proper development in all aspects that is of great benefit currently and far into their lifetime. Especially preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) when combined with Breastfeeding / Extended Breastfeeding, opting out of vaccines, co-sleeping & baby wearing. More and more hospitals today are recognizing the importance of baby-wearing – especially in NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) called “Kangaroo Care” where the baby is touched skin to skin bodily with the mother or their primary caregivers and they recover much more quickly than ones that aren’t given skin to skin contact. And the hospitals are promoting keeping babies close with their mothers in their room than being separated from the mothers and taken off to nursery for hours on end all swaddled up and left alone in their own bassinet.

We already have a PERFECT natural immune system, food in breast milk, and closeness from co-sleeping & baby wearing as the mother usually instinctively does that, that which was created and thought of thoroughly & fully by the Creator. God does not make any mistakes and Humanity has survived for millennia & eons just fine until we decided to interfere and mess with the Divine design like we have in Western Civilization.

We aren’t even giving babies the opportunity anymore to enter the world as a Perfect Creation that just came from God. What happened to us, as a civilization, that has become fearful and distrusting of the Divine Creation and altering our babies in all aspects borne out of our “fears”. Now, our babies only know of fear, being prodded & poked without love & gentleness by strangers, experiencing pain of being pricked with so many shots and having all these foreign objects & chemicals being injected in their pure & clean bodies and they’ve only been in the world for a few minutes after being born and what’s worse, they haven’t even been able to touch & bond their mom, search for life-sustaining milk, rest & acclimate after all the work of being born in this world which is so much different from Spirit, and especially, where is the True Love & Joy that should have been theirs right from the moment of their birth?

I think the greatest and sad irony is that as we grow older, we become more concerned about our health and we go crazy trying to become healthy and have our bodies be pure & clean again so that we can have great health and not age horribly. And here we are, polluting and subverting the Divine Health that God had already given to us in the first place as newborns.

As adults, we do understand (if we aren’t confused already by society & science) what we need to do to be healthy and in turn, disease-free. Then why are we treating our miracles horribly from the get-go & doing this to our babies & children and calling it Love? That’s just insanity.

RACISM IS ONE OF SOCIETY’S CANCER

Standard

I have been pondering on this often for the last couple of years. I already knew internally and spiritually that racism wasn’t a good thing since I was a small child, but didn’t really give it much deep thought until the last few years. I love and accept everyone regardless of who they are. I do not believe in labels and stereotypes as that is dividing and degrading our Human-ness. We are ONE Family.

I’ve been giving it much more thought since our sons, Quinn and Ryan, have experienced racism on several occasions and told me about their experiences and I’ve been taking some classes that highlights historical and current racism like Indigenous Studies and Environmental Justice pre-law classes.

I have taught our sons the same belief that I have mentioned in the first paragraph. They have the same attitude as I do and loves making friends with who-ever, unfortunately, they have not had some positive experiences in the last year or 2. Just 2 days ago, the boys were walking home from the library and several ADULT men of color (for lack of better term) were in a car driving by and yelled at them with some expletives and then called them “white boys” – the boys were shocked and looked around as it was out of the blue and the boys just kept on walking ignoring them.

When the boys told me about it, they were like “Why do people act like that? We didn’t do anything and we’re not haters of anyone. This is really ridiculous!” Ryan told me that he is starting to feel like he doesn’t like a specific ethnic group because of constant experiences of racism towards him. I told him: “Don’t give into those feelings. You cannot paint a whole ethnic group based on a few bad “apples” so to speak and sometimes it’s the culture or society that teaches them this type of behavior and we should have love, mercy, compassion, and forgiveness for them because it is most likely that they’ve been treated awfully themselves by other ethnic groups and even each other in their own group. Just continue being an AWESOME & LOVING person and friend to others.”

So all these things got me thinking more – Racism is a CANCER because it wounds people and divides people further and it’s a never-ending vicious cycle which often leads to avoidable tragedies and violence. It’s also taught and it is NOT something that we are born with.

I understand that racism occurs today but it is something that was MAN-MADE for the purpose to cause exactly what is happening today BUT that doesn’t mean we should and can accept it. For example, Ryan can say that he is “justified” in being racist back because he was treated that way. But there is NEVER any justification to do something horrendous and atrocious back like racism or anything negative of any kind.

So there’s racism and then there’s counter-racism to at least “feel” like you got “payback” but really, how does that really solve anything for the better to do that? NOTHING. It’s all about destruction of each other instead of building each other up.

I do notice on Facebook and in other avenues that people use racist words to describe someone either in all seriousness or in jest, but still it is propagating racism by uttering these words to each other. What we need to do is to have racism and counter-racism become non-issues then it’ll just disappear because no one is doing it. That would be AWESOME!

I know it is very possible because like I said, racism isn’t something that we are born with, but learned. So if it’s learned, then it can be unlearned.

Point being: Is this the type of world we really want to be living in and passing onto our children and future generations? We need to CREATE a better and more loving world for our children and future generations and that starts with US. Individually and collectively.

Religion

Standard

-Religion shouldn’t be used to justify wrong actions towards individual, people, and nations.

-Whichever religion or no religion that helps people draw closer to God / Heavenly Father / Creator / Great Spirit – whatever name – is AWESOME. We all should be grateful that there are various avenues or tools that fits each person’s search to be closer to God as there’s many paths leading to the same place.

- No religion is 100% perfect.

- It’s an intensely personal Journey of Life for each of us with different issues & needs that is ever changing. So there really is no “one size fits all” in all ways but all religions have the same “basics” so to speak.

- Getting our mind, body, and spirit into alignment instead of being split and going in whichever direction. Insanity.

Not extreme point of Spirit (isolation – not participating in Life) vs Worldly (ignoring Spirit and being wholly in to instant gratification, etc.)

BE Spirit Being that we truly are being balanced WITH the World (Being involved in Life here on Earth / self-governing & being in control and aligning ourselves with higher purpose) as we are of Heaven and Earth.
