Off my game | Finding my way back to peace

tumblr_m7sf6ncB8Y1qbi118o1_1280

I have got to make some serious changes in my life – discipline.

I have not been working out the way I want to so I want to make a change.

The first 3 weeks of this cleanse I felt alive and brand new – and now I feel a little clouded again.

Perhaps because I have drifted away from eating mostly raw and have slid into the partly raw arena.

I need to make a shift.

No more indulging in popcorn – even if it is air popped lol

I need more leaves, roots & beans!

I want my balance back – and daily yoga is back in full effect!

 

I WROTE THAT WEEKS AGO…

and never posted it.

Thought I’d update it today.

I see now that I was being a little hard on myself, but perhaps I did what I needed to do to keep myself disciplined.

It worked.

I’m now down 27 lbs and have managed to keep my bipolar symptoms in check thus far.

I’ve been doing regular yoga and even made it out for a few runs.

My eating has been superb – although I did indulge a few times, I kept it balanced and upped my fitness during the time.

No more bad habits only occasional treats!

I feel healthier in body, mind and spirit and I’ve only just begun!

Life now has so much promise where before I felt empty and lost.

I have real concrete goals – like to seriously get into my yoga practice,  find a teacher and commit to my practice and decided in a few years if I’d like to,  teach.

Goals!

Yes me!

Business is moving along and I have now added a new feature to my blog (MakeydahsPantry.com) Yogi of the Month where I interview lesser known yogis to give them exposure and show people the real heart of yoga.

I have so much planned for my website it’s incredible!

I’m on cloud nine – but in a realistic way.

Life is good because I am taking part in shaping it into something I feel is good.

Thank God for Yoga, Dharma, Niyamas and Bhakti 🙂

I just wanted to take this opportunity to not only update my blog, but to also share some of this positive good feeling I am experiencing at the moment.

This has to be shared!

Love and light!

Be easy you guyys

 

 

Effective Immediately: Mexico bans GMO corn

So happy for Mexico! I have to wonder though – how long will it take the US to follow suit?
I mean, let’s face it, this is a daunting task, but it can be done.

Of Course Vegan

A Mexican judge placed an immediate and indefinite ban on genetically-modified corn in the country, only days after thousands across the world took to the streets in protest against Monsanto and their GMO industry.

Effective immediately, companies like Monsanto and DuPont/Pioneer will no longer be allowed to plant or sell their corn within the country’s borders.

The decision comes nearly two years after the Mexican government had put Monsanto’s GE corn on hold, citing the need for more tests.

Now, Mexican authorities have made their move.

According to Environmental Food and Justice, Judge Jaime Eduardo Verdugo J. of the Twelfth Federal District Court for Civil Matters of Mexico City ruled that the genetically-engineered corn posed ”the risk of imminent harm to the environment.”

He also ordered Mexico’s Secretary of Agriculture and SEMARNAT (Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales), equivalent to the U.S. EPA, to immediately “suspend all activities involving the planting of…

Houston, we have a problem | Did I do that?

This past week I’ve been a magnet for negativity and didn’t realize it until this morning.

Honestly, it was a pebble turned bolder rolling down a long hill that I didn’t notice was increasing in size and force until it was too late.

It took patience and stepping away (that I am currently in the midst of) to really see my part in the madness.

I hadn’t been still at all – only thought I was and until the proverbial shit hit the fan did I realize my mistakes.

I’m no martyr, I am by no means responsible for the situation itself, I’m merely accepting and acknowledging my role in the sorted series of events.

Sometimes there’s an inner voice that you miss because you’re begging so loudly.

Today I’m still.

I jumped back into the routine that I had neglected for four full days (not to mention my hormones – no wonder I’ve been  so wired), and focused on stilling my mind and settling my spirit.

‘Que sera, sera’ is my motto, also, what’s done is done.

The only thing I can do at this point is act correctly.

“Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it”

Thank God for yoga

Makeydah’s Pantry | I sell stuff online too

There was once a quiet little internet store launch that happened on October 3rd.

I was on vacation so the fanfare was limited.

Karmic Law | What’s your karmic FICA score?

YB-C01_KeepKarma_

In light of a few things that have been going on in my life lately, I’ve been meditating on Karma for a minute.

I’m curious as some things catch up to some people so quickly and others, they just seem to rack up negative karmic debt and keep on rolling on with  little to no consequence.

I mean, pure evil.

Abusive – to everyone.

Sociopaths.

I digress…

I put conscious effort into not only my karma, but the karma of those I encounter daily.

I do not want to spread any negative vibes.

I try to notice when I am moving into a negative place and I withdraw a little – not anti-social like I used to, but just a little.

I don’t visit people’s homes and stuff like that.

Negative energy lingers and I try to get out of the house and walk around a store, around the park – SOMETHING to difuse the negative energy coursing through me.

You gotta let it out – don’t allow it to get trapped in.

But also, don’t spread it to others!

Negative energy is like a virus.

It needs a host to facilitate it’s ‘thing’.

Quarantine works – but you have to know how to do it,

I guess I was in the mood to jot down some of my current thoughts.

Maybe just to look back and see where my head was at in this moment in my life one day.

Or maybe even feedback?

Who knows.
