chakras/energy centers on doctor oz?! Cool!

I sometimes get the intuitive hit to check out what will be airing on the Doctor Oz show, so twice this week.  When I saw “chakras” mentioned in the write-up I had to record it and see what was up!  Chakras going mainstream 🙂

Kulreet Chaudhary is a neurologist and talks with Doctor Oz about the chakras and about saying mantras (sounds that, when you say them, your tongue presses on nerve points/energy points in your mouth which sends a signal to your brain which in turn sends a signal to the appropriate organ as it relates to the energy meridians.  I have written before that for me mantras have been life-changing.  I recently have gone back to a more formal, daily ritual of chanting mantras because I was back in that mundane life challenge thing, also known as drudgery, when I know that magic lives in the ether of Life.***

Chaudhary also talks about using mudras (hand positions to “lock”in some energy and bring in other life force and allow them to circulate in a specific manner) and about eating certain foods and how they can affect your chakras (which is also discussed in Denise and Meadow Linn’s book “The Mystic Cookbook”).

Namaste and many blessings of health and joy to you***

“Comparison is the thief of joy” calligraphy quote

I don’t like that feeling when I try to do a finished piece for my calligraphy class and even though I practiced, my hand seems to have a mind of it’s own–can’t draw a straight line or draw a circle…maybe next week lol.  Anyway, since we got to choose our own quote this week (yay!!), I decided this is the one I needed for inspiration and perseverance!  Especially for the perseverance part 😉

yummy easy (gluten-free!) banana muffins

(yummy banana muffins–hmm, sorry it’s a little blurry, um, I was running with my iphone to try and get a picture before the muffins were all eaten and they’re all younger and faster than I am)

We’ve made this recipe many times and technically they are “Banana-Macadamia Nut Muffins” from www.epicurious.com but my daughter doesn’t like nuts so I don’t add them.  I make them according to the recipe but switch out the flour for Mama’s Coconut Flour Blend and I cook them for 19-20 minutes.  I also add a streusel mix of some butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon on top of the muffins before I bake them.  They are very good fresh out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream–even those in the family who do not like “gluten-free” loved them.  Even the next day they are still moist and not crumbly.

Lisa Garr and Howard Martin “follow your heart” and yes the heart really IS intuitive!!! Like we didn’t already know.

I listened to Lisa Garr’s show on hayhouseradio today with Howard Martin.  They talked about how you should “follow your heart” and having a coherence between your heart and mind.  Very interesting! 🙂  It will replay this weekend on October 5th, 2013 at 5 a.m.(PT) and October 6th, 2013 at 8 p.m.  www.hayhouseradio.com  Louise Hay’s show “The Totality of Possibilities” is part of a CD and is also very good.  It’s on at different times during the week and on this weekend Oct. 5 at 9 a.m. and Oct. 6 at 12 a.m.

and for more info and a video (watch the video it explains it) on the energy of the heart’s intuitive intelligence www.glcoherence.org and at www.heartmath.org they have some research about the intuition of the heart and how the heart was intuitively precognitive in knowing the next random computer picture–if it was an intense picture or a calm picture.
