So here goes some 'Light-Hearted Lifestyle content' on Raw Food as Lidl says this is the way to engage people!!

It is not what you eat but what you don't eat that keeps you healthy

Why is organic, raw, vegan food a necessity rather than an option?
I've only just realized that very few people know that over half of every meal SHOULD be raw, if you want to prevent cancer and other illnesses "
There are over 100 trillion organisms in the gut, that make up ¾ of our immune system.

And, of course, everything must be 'organic'. The organic brands are not a pricey range that you could never afford, it is really worth shifting your mindset to thinking right, just eat less but real non contaminated food.


Organic simply means that an ingredient has 'not been dowsed repeated in carcinogenic chemicals at every stage of growing, ripening and preservation'. And, no, just because a product is on the shelf in a shop does not mean it is okay to eat. Always bear in mind that if you buy and eat something one year and the deteriorating health shows up a year or two later, there is no accountability, traceability and, yes, the retailers know this, the food industry knows this and doctors and pharmaceutical companies benefit from it.


People should be eating raw food
It is not a sustainability issue or a lifestyle choice. The medical science is outlined below by the Children's Cancer Prevention periodical.

Raw food does not mean only chopped up fruit and salad.

Everything, except potatoes and meat can be eaten raw. Grate it, chop it small, marinade it. If it's beans soak them and sprout them, if it's nuts they are even better for you soaked over night. Soon you will only like the taste of raw dishes. The internet is full of amazing recipes. The place to start is, what do I have in my cupboard? Then tap into google, 'raw recipes with ...carrot or whatever you have'


The science behind raw food

"Paul Kouchakoff M.D. a doctor from Switzerland was the first to show from this research in the 1930's that if you eat a diet consisting of 51% or more of cooked foods, that your body reacts as if it were being invaded by a foreign organism.

Your body reacts this way because, even if the food is lightly steamed, the enzymes within the food are lost. Enzymes are key to digestion and they are key to the use of nutrients by the body. Without the presence of these enzymes your body treats the cooked food as a toxin and goes into a state known as 'leukocytosis'.

Digestive leukocytosis generates white cell acivity against the cooked food you've eaten because the cooking process has bastardised the molecular integrity of the food in a way that makes it appear as a toxin.

Dr. Kouchakoff also showed from his research that if 51% of more of your diet consisted of raw foods that you would have no leukocytosis. Meaning that your imune system would not be activated with a false alarm."

Published by Salubrious Periodicals

Diet must contain plant based protein. 

Meat cannot be eaten raw and 50% of the protein in anything cooked is lost. Secondly, plants are easier to digest than meat.


 The Science behind Plant-based Protein

Written regarding Spirulina - to be found in any health food shop: "Spirulina was consumed in Mexico city as the primary protein source for 5,000 years. It is the highest protein content food in the world. The 'Max Planck Institute' discovered that 50% of protein is destroyed in any food by the cooking process. Therefore plant based protein sources should be a key part of any diet. Plant based proteins are fully bio-available as well, meaning that they are incredibly easy for your body to absorb." 


For me? I have been alive and thriving on a plant-based diet for 16 years, lots of organic for 4 years and perfecting raw cuisine for 1 year. You can start anywhere with this; a health need, something about the welfare of animals pricking your conscience, the environment or a love of food preparation and dinner parties. But at least put the information in your pipe and smoke it! If you need help with the transition to a better diet, I will definitely help.

 

The difference between medical care and natural health care

Again the information comes from the Registered Charity no. 1026049 www.thescotstechnique.com
The first treats symptoms and the second prevents illness.

The 4 Steps of Natural Health Care are outlined as:

1. Emotional Balance

Negative emotions have been proven to be an immunosuppressive. Healthy emotions are reflected in the state of the body.

2. Nutrition

Fulfilling your body's nutritional requirements enables your body to function in a state of health and vitality.

3. Activity

Regular activity maintains and promotes health.

4. Detoxification

Look to remove the things in your environment and diet which are causing toxicity in your body.

Facebook's Emotion-Reading Technology! Maintain a poker-player's expression - give nothing away!

We really need to be living by consciousness rather than emotion so Do we want facebook to sponsor emotion-reading technology to decide what we will feel next?
Hang on, this can only go three ways 1) Compound emotions. Depress vegans further before bed time! 2) Mood enhancement. Deliver ill-timed comedy to those grieving or 3) Have their own agenda. Deliver a synthesized emotion that 'they' want us to have, like a felt need to 'Buy something because you haven't enough and you aren't enough' or a fluoride-esque anaesthetic: 'Don't worry about anything, everyone's fine'.

We're going to have to get really good at observing what are our own feelings and ideas and what are facebook's/the new world order/government/corporations. I know HAARP have been doing the latter for years. Where Tesla saw the potential to shield the planet using the matched frequency of the human heart and that of the ionisphere, HAARP, I gather, decided instead to synthesize the negative emotions of rage and crisis and send them around to deignated destinations instead. Hence, the widespread fear and self destructive tendencies.

Was it back in the 80s that we saw this nano technology tested on a psychiatric patient to stabilize and destabilize them? The more I think aboout Facebook observing how rushed, yet absorbed, yet rattled most people are, the more of an easy target I realize we are to be controlled. So the only answer is stay on top of this, everyone! Be very careful to only beam out love and compassion ... and then observe equally carefully if that is what you are getting back. If you get something different back from FB, you will know and must remember and keep remembering that you could be being manipulated so to hold on to that independence of heart and mind, for dear life....and keep your phone out of the bedroom, lights off, preferably salt light on for some negative ions - which are good by the way - and anything else you can think of!

Suddenly, I'm glad this has come up as it's another chance to notice technology's effect on each of us on a daily basis. The human heart is stronger but don't lose touch with it!

How Do You Deal With What Is and What Is Not?

-->
Leave Her Alone, She's With Me

Time to observe your good traits as well as your bad

Do you often check in with yourself with kindly discernment? For myself, I have always done a lot of work around areas of my personality that I considered negative and patterns that had a tendency to depress me. I had not questioned those that gave joy and peace. For example, I have always looked for the good in people and the gift in situations. I never give up on the potential of a situation or hope for the people involved, including myself. One of my favourite clearings down the years has been to sit in my eye-shaped room (the vesica pices – a shape created by overlapping the horizons of two circles) and if the issue is a sickness I ask for it to be released from its actuality and returned to the field of all possibilities and if it is an issue of lack, I ask for the required scenario to be drawn down from the said field of possibilities into the actualization of physical occurrence.

Instead of a need to keep moving, look around the present moment

Until! In recent weeks I spotted another level of truth. Yes, there is great healing and great forward movement in this method but there is also a focus on what is not.  It serves recovery and vision and expansion – a means of getting to where you want to go - but I was not looking closely enough at what is (what is already around and is currently the case).  I found my way back to this focus via a gratitude practice where I’d identify ten things I was grateful of, morning and evening, and really savour one thing in particular as the very best thing that had come about that day.

Becoming Thankful for the Actual Rather Than Potential

Through this training, I already knew that the more you look, the more you see. I found I had to combine the two exercises and savour always a full ten favourite occurrences of the day. Nonetheless, I realized with a shock that if you are focused on potential, you will only ever meet potential, create potential and experience potential. For me, that included all my various objectives to some extent, including love, health, business and social change.


Who Let The Dogs In

Disappointment to Regeneration at High Speed 

So I came down with a bump of disappointment and wept a little. I had to let my hopes go. I needed to take off my rosy tinted spectacles. I had to face the reality of the present moment with all its absentees. Luckily, the sadness and disillusionment only lasted fifteen minutes….before it dawned on me what I had to do: Same as always;
1.     Clear the emotional charge out of the situation: It aint good, it aint bad, it just is.
2.     Then remember and keep remembering to look around for what is…because, by the sheer law of averages, there will be plenty there to be getting along with, without drifting into what could be …but is not!!
Plato's Water Symbol also known as Metatron's Cube

No Hurry

Although recovery speed is valued when you're on a downer or if you're an athlete, it is also good to give yourself time to listen to your conscience and heart.

Wisdoms For The Day That's In It

Pain of all sorts
Ekhart Tolle says that suffering has its place in deepening our life experience and developing compassion but then there comes a time when you realize you don’t have to suffer any more. (And he doesn’t mean finish yourself off, more that you can choose to stop tossing and turning and prioritize fun and contentment instead).
Gifts and Skills
Oprah Winfrey says life is about finding out what your gift is and then using it in service to others. (It’s actually easier to use your gifts for someone else than for yourself though. Case in point: I made a dowsing rod yesterday evening and cleared 86 vorteces from Harmony Hall. Just buzz around your house and have a listen to what’s going on. I asked ‘show me to anywhere where energy, power or soul is being lost and any geopathic stresses taking their toll’. Energy can form impenetrable walls OR drains like a plug hole…Don’t let the fabric of your reality get too frayed - I recommend doing something in the service of your own soul today.

Food Waste
Something like one third of all food produced is wasted and yet one seventh of the world’s population is starving hungry. The group, Stop Food Waste, say to do an inventory of your fridge and cupboards before going shopping. I’d go even further and suggest to try not to go shopping at all for a while. Living off one’s hump, like a camel, activates your imagination – like this morning’s lime and nut crunch creation. Google is your friend in this. Just tap in ‘recipes using …..’ If you think one person can’t do any good, I heard differently. For example, a calculation found that 430 something animals are spared each year for each person that goes vegetarian. It does add up that if you don’t buy stuff, the producers will feel the pinch to produce things you will!

Work
The Desiderata (16th century anonymous verses found in St Paul’s Cathedral) say to stay interested in your own career, however humble, it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Thinking of the work available these days and the state of the world today, I believe getting into the present moment is the best chance of survival, let alone health and happiness. How do you know if you’re in the moment? Try playing a piece of music and if you can’t get through even the first tricky passage, you can be pretty sure that your mind is elsewhere. This applies what ever you are doing. If you able to concentrate and equally observe yourself getting things done, then you’re definitely on the right path. If, on top of that, you can muster up some gratitude or enthusiasm for the task in hand then you’re well on your way to regaining consciousness. That’s a good thing to aim for by the way as it involves being coherent, of sound mind, non resistant, not too solid and therefore healthy and lots of other things that I can’t think of right now!

Enlisting the Unicorns' Help



Of the seven sorts of unicorn, Magic is a Killina. His fiery horn is of such adamantine power that it trembles at the very edge of mortal vision – few are the eyes that can perceive it. Their arrival is an omen of EITHER the imminent reign of a great leader OR the end of time. Let’s hope it is the former! The Killina were appointed keepers/carriers of the Three Great Secret sayings, to be revealed only at the end of this present age!  Today’s meditation was to listen for clues. I got the three eventually: Be Quiet. Bring Peace. Resist Injustice.

So, can we all muck in, with these, please!? Thanks a lot!

May Day! Help! Public Participation Survey of EU Agriculture Policy enclosed - Closes tomorrow!!!

This is the link to the Public Participation Survey - at the end you get to write your own thing or use something of mine that I have copied below and right at the end, you can submit your own proposals - up to a five page document

 

I attached:  Going Vegan Addresses all 17 EU Sustainability Goals

An Answer to Qu. 12 about imports and exports and impact on developing countries.

What are the main problems/obstacles preventing the current policy from successfully delivering on its objectives? What are the drivers behind these problems?
-->
Chemical free farms make up only 1.9% of Ireland's farms, even though diverse, manual, organic methods are 4 times more productive of land space, protective of soil, animals than mechanized. Farms should be supported in transitioning to horticultural from animals, while we still have the water for that. 95% of the earth's water is already contaminated. (I did not dare tick any boxes about clean energy in case Europe still considers gas as clean energy - when it is actually cleaned by billions of litres of much needed fresh water. I did not dare tick any boxes that mentioned research as testing toxic products and GM mutations on harmless animals should have been banned already but Ireland has become the animal testing capital of Europe as so lax on welfare. Crops such as potatoes are sprayed between 20 and 30 times with glyphosate. The effects of the pesticides, fertilizers are kept quiet. Even Putin has banned Monsanto, Sygenta, Bayer and Dow and co accusing them of crimes worse than terrorism: Stating, it should not be the position of a government to systematically poison its citizens. EU Regulations and standards for farms still only benefit chemical & pharmaceutical companies. Human health, food and quality of life(locally & in developing countries)are compromised by every intensification. Meat producers are fraudulent and decide the payment for animals and milk between themselves. Many farmers in Ireland have not been able to pay their feed bills for the last two
years.

An Answer to Qu. 13
Which elements of the current CAP are the most burdensome or complex and why?
Animal agriculture has got to be stopped, phased out if necessary, but stopped as soon as possible. It is inappropriate to stand over the mass unregulated breeding and slaughter of so many sentient beings in this day and age. The only compensations and supports should be to farmers transferring their immense skills and building on their knowledge of land managment to do organic horticulture. Real food is not only needed for Europeans' health but also for the environment. To regulate the meat producers. To raise awareness of chemically grown food and incentivise a transition away from it 1) for farmers to organic practices and welfare standards; like the savings to be made on fertilizer and pesticides and the better price that their products would then command. Also 2) raise awareness in consumers; of carcinogens and toxicity of preservatives and growing methods and the slavery in the chain of cheap products. Encourage people towards circular economies of local community supported agriculture schemes and self sufficiency/sustainability of each area. The only things we need to export or import are the things we NEED - many European countries already need water and get Nestle and the big players off our basic life resources.  


An Answer to Qu. 32 
Do you have concrete ideas for simplifying the CAP and reducing the administrative burden for farmers, beneficiaries (or public administrations)? Please specify and explain the reasons behind your suggestions.
If a chemical is banned from use in one country, do not allow products to be imported to that country that have been grown using that chemical- it is an unfair advantage to other countries that are still allowed to use dangerous chemicals while the country's own may be harvested later and look poor in comparison- even though they are technically better -chemical free. Lift the rules around organic labeling and make heavier the labeling on chemically produced and GM products. They are the ones people really need to know about. Ban live export. Ban factory farming - and this time not with a 12 years to put into effect, like the increase in chicken cage size. Stop veterinary incentives to claim cases of TB and stop the financial benefit for slaughterhouses of taking TB cases for free as they can just add them to the food chain anyway after cooking the carcasses. Stop the cull of badgers re TB and Otters and seals re fish. Absurd to suggest the animals are at fault when it is obviously human practices that are making all stocks vulnerable. Economy: The exact week the farmer's subsidy is paid tall the payments for shots, antibiotics, feed etc etc go out. They cannot make money and they never know how much their animal will be worth having raised it for two years. Animal agriculture is not sustainable, for farmers, their animals' health (endless shots of antebiotics to survive pneumonia, other germs in cramped conditions long and too young and the run off into water & environment.

An Answer to Qu. 33
Do you have more ideas for modernising the CAP?
17 EU Sustainability Goals could be met by a vegan society. Treat the problems of humanity, food and ecology as the one thing thing. Focus on raw food industries as they provide intact vitamin/mineral profile and enzymes still alive. Less heavy on manufacturing energy use, chemical and water use. Focus on and support a plant-based, organic, multicropping, localized agricultural practices and production. Make the ocean a no take zone at once and for 5 years. Stop being so heavily funded and dominated by the agro chemical companies. Find all the alternative research - that is all not undertaken by them themselves, and then fine them for Ecocide - the laws are there. This could realistically fund real change, bring justice, fair quality of life for farmers, support community and city efforts and only penalize the companies that have made enough money already. If you don't, we will all end up like the Indian Suicide Belt; left unable to save our own seeds or maintain any good agricultural practices at all. Prioritize Horticulture in colleges above animal agriculture. Make sure chemical management is no longer taught as somehow normal. Pay each farmer a subsidy only to be a citizen scientist - finding out exactly what their soil needs and becoming innovative about what can be produced and what manpower and information they would need to do it.Support Community Garden Networks and other urban farms, spaces, garden centres as food growing, educational and social cohesion facilities.
