Let The Dark Side Win (Sometimes)

Monday Morning Mentoring

It’s Winter Solstice this week. That’s a special time for us here in the Johnson household. We have the spiral walk – a tradition that is now 7 years strong. This was introduced to me by a Waldorf homeschooler and let me on a path of discovery of Rudolf Steiner and his beautiful work for the teacher as well as the student.

Today I want to talk about the Dark side as we lead into the shortest day and longest night…watch video here:

 

The Process and the Foundations, How These Two Pieces Are Key To Health, Wealth and Happiness

Master Key Master Mind Alliance Week 10

I won’t lie, this past week was a challenge. Thanksgiving in the states, families converge and it is a time of celebrating togetherness and love.

While I had no intention of cooking a full Thanksgiving dinner, that’s just what I did. It wasn’t a burden just something the I could do to keep the peace and contribute to another’s contentment and experience of normalcy, which I believe is the goal for some folks.

I am still challenged with this “opinion” work. How will I ever be able to be free of my opinion of just about everything? First I must ask, what is the pattern in place that is a requirement of my opinion about such subject? Random opinions? For what reason? Mostly they really do no good. They are meant to help? No, I don’t think so. They might be that a connection or sense of belonging is needed? Perhaps. That seems more likely.

I still so want to get it right. What in the world does that even mean? I try. By golly I try hard at everything. Always focused on improving.

Is that good? I don’t know.

I know things are shifting. Things that were important even a week ago seem unimportant. My values still remain steadfast. Kindness – above all. Compassion. Creativity. Competency. Trustworthiness. These have been with me as beacons for over 10 years now. I recall actually writing these out in Austin with my 15 month old son. They are as strong as ever. So that’s something.

It has now become a routine action as I wake almost to the minute at 4:45am with no alarm. I’m just awake and ready to create. That is fun. Because I chose this time and it feels good to have that wee early time to do my meditations.

I want so much for my sons – I want to give them everything and I thought that I was by staying in the marriage. That is the painful piece right now. That loss. That 17 years of connection. I am using the tools of EFT to help with the sadness and the loss and the loneliness. The self worthiness that comes up – that’s there to be cleared. So stay the course. Accept and expect the process to be as such. That it’s not something to be instantly fixed or replaced with something else.

I am building new foundations. New peptides. New blueprints. It is a gift to be a part of the Master Key MMA. So grateful to Mark for his words this Sunday. Coffee talk! I love so much being connected to truly kind and good people. That fills me with hope. With the impetus to continue my work and live my definite major purpose here on this earthly plain.

I will remember his story this week – the mama on the porch, growing a baby, watching the stars, healing a sick husband, taking care of the home all the while – growing that little baby.

What precious life is growing in the earth right now? What is lying dormant in wait for the spring to blossom. Blessings. True and miraculous blessings.

Peace, Love, Joy.

Is It Better To Get My Nutrition From Supplements or Food?

Tuesday Tip of The Day

“Is it better to get my nutrition from supplements or food?”

This is a question I get often. I always believe it’s best to get nutrients from our food, growing what you can yourself, getting food locally, bio-organic and pasture raised or organic in the stores.

Kale is abundant in the garden now and I can eat up to 10 cups of this a day in a salad, stew and with kale chips.

That’s a lot of nutrition right there. With nutritiously dense soups and stews this time of the year, (from bones and meat from local pastured beef) it doesn’t take a lot in terms of time or money to maintain good nourishment free of supplements.

However, I do personally additionally take MCT oil and EFAs and occasionally extra D3 K2 and magnesium as well as other trace minerals. I also cook with a lot of herbs and roots on a regular basis using food as my medicine.

Monday Morning Mentoring

 

There is no bigger killer than stress.

With so much going on in our world, society and cultural pressures, we may not have control over what is impacting our lives but we must get a handle on how we respond, both internally and externally, to stress.

Over the next 4 weeks I will share my best tips for responding to stress and stressful situations.

Join us live for Yogilachi’s Transform Stress Program starting in just a couple of weeks and keep watching Monday Morning Mentoring.
