Green Smoothie

So, on my quest to eat healthier, I found this smoothie recipe on Pinterest. Love that site! I decided to just buy the coconut milk. Because I don't have all day to make homemade and besides it would have been cheaper. So, that's what I did. But, I bought everything else as stated. Since then, I have swapped the organic yogurt for Greek yogurt and baby spinach for regular spinach. Again, it was cheaper. Also, I have added flax seed meal and honey. Although, you don't even notice the honey. I have added those last two because they are "fat releasing foods."

The original recipe is from the blog, Flour on my Face.

Here's how I prepare it:

1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 banana (original calls for frozen. why bother?)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (i just dump a 6 oz. container in)
2 handfuls of spinach
2 or 3 strawberries
2 cubes of ice
2 teaspoons of flax seed meal
a couple squirts of honey

You can make this up the night before so that's it's all ready for you to head out the door. It tastes just the same.

I have been drinking this a couple times a week since the second week of May. I feel healthy and I do believe my skin is thanking me. I am on a quest for more vegetable and fruit smoothies.

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.

That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
