The Key to a Peaceful, Prosperous Life? Banish lower energies!

I have done everything in my power to keep politics out of my blog.  However, this country is coming to the point where the politics at play can and will harm any chances we have of moving forward and moving into the light as a people, as a species and as a planet. The danger?   Lower energies.

Lower energies: What are they? Fear, lack, hate, bitterness, selfishness, resentment, bigotry, violence, anger, and much much more.

In a Facebook discussion on the timeline of one of my friends, I began to examine what is going on in this country on a more metaphysical level.  I’ve been personally, in my meditations, getting rid of lower energies as much and as consistently as possible. About 14 months ago, I began to physically do the same, distancing myself from anyone who personifies lower energies, as well as using Facebook tools to block and unfriend those types.

You know, once this ‘culling’ began in my life, where I started getting rid of these people over a year ago, I have realized when analyzing, that they were never contributing anything to my life whatsoever anyway. I’ve not missed a single one of them.

Remember, you will attract in your life what you put forward. If you put forward compassion and love, you’ll attract the same. Those who are unable or unwilling to live in that manner and who put forward opposite, lower energies will attract the same to themselves. It is your choice of course, but when you cut those types out of your life, you are now able to move forward yourself in quantum leaps. Your power to do good will intensify and isn’t that what we’re all here for?

They were ‘hangers-on’ who were trying to enjoy the good positive energy of those like us, without actually contributing any of their own. Now, whether that is because they HAVE no good energy of their own or because they chose not to, is of no consequence. They are leaches. They are small, dark beings living in their own dark world of their own making, living in hate and resentment and refusing to move forward. They always have the choice to move forward but it is their choice. You will not teach them if they do not want to learn.

It is just recently that it has come to me that the entire Trump movement is a massive, ugly metaphor the worst of the worst on this planet. They embrace fear, selfishness, hate, anger, violence, ignorance, bitterness and all the while, do nothing to help others – not other humans, not society, not nature and not other beings.

Step back, my friends.  Look at your life, your country and your planet in the larger view. When you do that keeping in mind that the lower energies are harming us all, and they have become increasingly prevalent in the form of a political movement BASED ON lower energies, I hope you will see how dangerous this situation is.

Please everyone, move away from lower energies. Embrace truth.  Do the work. Ban the lower energies and those who exhibit those energies from your life.

Move into light.  Move into compassion.  Move into love.  Move into truth. Your health will improve.  Your life will improve.  Your point of view will improve.  And the sooner you eliminate the toxic energies and people in your life, the sooner you and those around you will move forward.



A Quick, Super-Energy Breakfast or Lunch

My husband plays golf on Mondays and in our oppressive heat, he often looses steam on the back nine.  We’ve found that if he does a high-fiber, high protein breakfast before he leaves, he is able to maintain his energy the entire 18 holes.  This of course, would be helpful for anyone who wants to keep moving and stay focused all day.

This particular concoction is my own updated, healthy version of something my Mom used to make us for lunch – a peanut butter and banana sandwich.  Of course, since we’re gluten free, it’s ix-nay on the ead-bray.   So instead, we use a millet and flax lavash and roll it up.

As a fan of fiber and protein, it’s not surprising this is packed with both.  The fiber count is 14 grams (or maybe 23 grams) – about 3 grams in the banana, 2 grams in the peanut butter and a whopping 9 grams of fiber in the lavash.   (I suspect, however, that the labeling is wrong on that particular product. They’ve changed their numbers several times over the years.  It says that 1/2 of a lavash is 9 grams of fiber so the ‘or maybe’ above is if that is in fact true. ) Quick Easy breakfast energy

The protein count is 11.5 grams with the Peanut butter contributing 8 grams of protein, the lavash has 2 grams of protein, and banana is about 1.5 grams of protein.   Now if this doesn’t pack a punch to get one from 7 AM to 2 PM, nothing will!

It’s doggone simple to make and barely needs a recipe.  I soften the refrigerated lavash with a spritz of water and bring it to room temp or give it 20 seconds in the microwave.  Then I spread on 2 TBS of organic, crunchy peanut butter.  Then, peal the banana and slice, arranging slices over the lavash.  Then, simply roll it up and eat it!  How easy is that?

The bananas are of course, organic as is the peanut butter.   The lavash?  It’s not labeled as such.  It’s almost impossible to find gluten free AND organic in any sort of similar product to this.

What’s great about this is that it doesn’t really require a special shopping trip.  I like my bananas on the green side so I buy them green-ish (See the pic).  Then when they ripen, my husband likes them ripe to mushy.  So they don’t go to waste.  The lavash can be in the freezer or the fridge, and the peanut butter stays fresh until it’s gone.

If you have problems with peanuts, you could substitute almond butter.
