Giving Up Meat

I have always known that we are what we eat. I know many years ago when Native Americans killed their animals for food it was said that they thanked the animal for giving their life for food. Different religions require an animal to be treated and slaughtered a certain way; in Judaism it’s Kosher and in Muslim it’s Halal. How can an animal that has not been treated and fed properly provide proper nourishment to our bodies? All that negativity and stress is in the meat. When I eat meat from a store that has a factory farm of animals I am contributing to that mistreatment. I have organizations on my Facebook like The Gentle Barn and The Farm Sanctuary that rescue animals. The Gentle Barn since I have been following them have opened rescues in Tennessee and now in Missouri. Did you hear about the six cows that escaped from the slaughter house back in April or May from St. Louis Missouri? The Gentle Barn rescued them and have purchased land to start a Gentle Barn Missouri. One of the cows had to be put down because of injuries they feel might have already been there at the time they escaped, they named him Spirit.

I have been dealing with different health issues and feel part of my healing will come from cleansing my body. In order to cleanse my body I am going to fill it with fresh foods. I will continue to listen to my body and make sure I am giving it what it needs. I have been using organic household and beauty products as much as possible. I have a lot of essential oils from Young Living and DoTerra. I use them on my body and on my house. I have to be careful because I have cats and I have read that diffusing them in the air might not be good for them so I only do it in a room that is closed off to them and only I go into. I haven’t had any meat since Tuesday and I have to say I do see a difference in my energy level. I have been watching videos from The Raw Boy, Fully Raw Christina, Rawvanna, and others, as well as reading The Medical Medium’s books (he promotes vegan raw and cooked). If I want to see change in the world I have to make those changes as well. So I saved recipes and made out a meal plan for the week. I don’t think my family will join me on this journey and that’s ok. If and when they are ready they will do it.

OH!!! I found out I have 2 baby birds in my hanging plant that is on my patio. They are so darn cute!!! I see mom flying in and out of there feeding them it is so precious.

Calm yourself girl!

Two weeks ago I was having major issues with my Internet because my provider decided to do an upgrade. It would have been nice to have a warning. I was not able to get online for three days and that was three days I was not able to go online to my class. I was ticked my instructor would do give me any forgiveness about the situation. We continued to have issues with the internet and the customer service rep said we should have been fine so he sent someone out here. When the tech came out he said everything was fine we just needed to do……..something….I forgot lol. So my husband continues to try things and made another phone call. We were able to get my computer connected to the modem and I wasn’t have the same issues any longer. I was so irritated and then I logged on to my class and the reply my instructor gave to a question I had was written in a way that made me fuming. I was about to throw the biggest temper tantrum ever!!! I stopped for a second and realized in my initial message I forgot to ask another question that would have made the reply different. So I took a deep breath and got out of my feelings. I explained to my instructor the other question I forgot and I was in such a rush to get the message sent off because of the way the internet kept erring out on me I did it too fast.

It was a good reminder to remain calm because my reaction can make or break a situation. On a better note I have two more assignments to do and I will be done with this class and then I start student teaching! I will be graduating in two months and I am so proud of myself!! I did it!! I have worked my ass off!

My sister L was diagnosed a month ago with lung cancer. At first the doctor sounded optimistic saying she was at stage one or two. When she had a PET scan done the doctors tone changed because the tumor is in a dangerous area between the right lung and the heart. They are going to do chemo for five days a week and then radiation for one day (I think that’s right). I wondered if the stage changed after the scan but I don’t want to ask, I want my sister to remain calm and as positive as possible. We have been talking about eating healthier, smoothies, and juicing. Today she tells me she is not sure she will be able to juice because it might interfere with her chemo. I have heard of so many people having positive results with taking supplements, juicing, and changing their diets. Is it true? I know a person has to be careful about supplements but I have doubts about doctors many times because many don’t know about alternative treatments that work and can work with modern medicine. I don’t know I just want my sister to be okay.
