your happiness depends on it

This is the beginning of an amazing post .

Your happiness depends on it…  by Dr Andrea Dinardo

Most people fight against what brings them despair instead of openly receiving what brings them joy.

img_0720

Shift your focus. Change your life.

Consciously receive (accept) the good that already exists in your life.

Your health. Your freedom. Your Vision. Your voice.

Accepting what is does not lower the bar.

Quite the opposite.

Acceptance opens your eyes to all the favour that exists in your life. 

Your relationships. Your home. Your creativity. This moment.

And it’s that good feeling that motivates you to strive for more of what’s right for you.

Instead of fighting against what’s wrong for you.

Begin by accepting what is.

Moment by moment.

Your happiness depends on it.

Thanks Andrea, you’re amazing!!

fighting for Florida’s most precious resource

Have you ever dove into a spring so clear blue and refreshing that it changed everything you ever thought you knew about natural springs?

This photo was snapped looking over the edge, standing on the diving platform at Blue Springs March 2015

There is nothing like it in the world; the exhilaration and pure delight of jumping into 72 degree clear cerulean springs on a hot day in the secret places and sacred spaces of Florida’s hidden treasures.

I’ve never felt such pure euphoria and connection to my surroundings as those times swimming in the natural Florida springs. There, bubbling and gurgling out from below, tickling my toes – daring me to dive into its depths I witnessed the primordial bubbles gushing volumes of our most precious resource on Earth, and I was in awe of nature in its purest form. From the first time and after each subsequent visit to our state’s liquid gems I still feel as though I am witness to something so sacred that I have no choice but to protect it, and share my love for these amazing places.

Check out the slideshow of some of my photos from Blue Springs here; http://www.examiner.com/slideshow/blue-springs-high-springs-florida-1 

I recently visited  a string of natural springs that blew my mind, and I don’t put that out there lightly.

In the past my comrades and I  have not only visited, but camped and canoed or kayaked many of our state’s most beautiful springs.

To protect this amazing gem I won’t be listing the exact location of this spring, but for those of you who have seen this precious sapphire sparkling in the sunlight….you wouldn’t forget it – ever.

Read about this place, and the vital importance of saving our springs in this poignant article and beautiful slideshow on Examiner.com here.

We tend to gravitate to the places that
resonate with us the most, and when it comes to tourism, we can’t help
it, we end up visiting many of the same places over and over again.
Now, more than ever we need to be aware of our ‘footprints’. They could
be annihilating the very things we hold so dear. 



Florida boasts many of the world best beaches, but we also have a little secret….there are more natural springs in Florida than anywhere else in the states .

(See http://www.floridasprings.org/learn/questions/).

stop the madness, don’t let corporate bullies win this battle over Oregon’s most precious resource

Natural resources belong to all of us…not companies,or corporations, but each and every one of our citizens.

I know I’m not from Oregon, but this could happen to any one of us in almost any state in America. Don’t let corporate America win this battle. We have the power to shut down corporate bullies battling over our most precious resource…water.

This petition sent off a loud bell still ringing in my ears, and I just can’t let it pass by without doing something about it.

There is no justification for any corporation to confiscate the people’s water, and then try to sell it back to them at a ridiculous cost.

Nestlé is closing in on a lucrative water privatization deal that will hand it millions of gallons of some of the cleanest drinking water in drought-ravaged Oregon — permanently. And get this: Nestlé will only pay one penny per 40 gallons of water — and then it will turn around and sell the same water back to the public for $2.63 per gallon.

The truth is what Nestlé is trying to do in Oregon has been its mercenary strategy for decades: target a small, rural town in dire financial straits, offer them peanuts for their most precious resource and then make out like bandits. The fact that the world is facing a coming water crisis hasn’t slowed it at all. If anything, Nestlé is becoming even more reckless. Now is a time to establish a precedent to how the world treats corporations like Nestlé who believe they can put a price on our most priceless resources.

We need to demand that Oregon governor scrap this deal with a serial corporate freeloader.

Please sign this petition at SUM OF US.org to stop Nestle from this madness.

To: Oregon Governor Kate Brown

hot news from ewg which brands use BPA

hot day doggie fanHello everyone!

Hope you’re having a fabulous summer, and yes, it’s been quite warm here in Florida….duh…it’s JUNE!

LOL.. It’s wipe-your-ass-with-a-snow-cone hot.

We expect it to be hotter than a heater in Hooter with highs of a hundred and ten… 😛

So, to get your mind off the heat (most likely you’re sitting at your desk in AC  anyway) I thought to share this email I received today as it’s quite pertinent to those of us who care about what’s in the products we buy, eat or use.

This email is from one of my all-time favorite websites:

Environmental Working Group

www.ewg.org/EWG is a nonprofit environmental research organization based in Washington, D.C. and a leading content provider for public interest groups and concerned with health. The Environmental Working Group is an American environmental organization that specializes in research and advocacy in the areas of toxic chemicals, agricultural subsidies, public lands, and corporate accountability.

citrus oils may help with liver cancer

How wonderful and exciting!

I love finding science about the wonders of essential oils. Many scientists are studying essential oils  and how they effect our bodies.

Check this out!…..

(lemonyellowcitrusNaturalNews) A new study published in the journal Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics suggests that the scent of citronella can inhibit the growth of cancer cells, including cancer of the liver. Researchers from the Ruhr University Bochum, say terpenes, a main component of essential oils, can prevent or slow cancer cell growth.

Headed by Professor Dr. Hanns Hatt, a team of scientists analyzed the molecular mechanisms by which cancer cell growth is slowed, using citronellal, the primary chemical compound responsible for giving citrus its distinctive lemon scent. Their experiment identified the olfactory receptor OR1A2 as being crucial for stopping cancer cell replication.

Large amounts of plant matter are needed to extract just a tiny bit of essential oil, explaining the product’s markup on store shelves.

Used for centuries by many cultures around the world, essential oils offer many health benefits and have been used to treat a variety of ailments including asthma, bronchitis, HIV, heart strokes and many others.

Essential oils help protect you from bacteria, viruses and fungi

Aside from improving your health, essential oils can help make your skin more beautiful, as well as assist with relaxation and sleep. There are more than 90 essential oils, all of them having their own unique benefits. You can reap the benefits of essential oils by applying them directly to your skin, through inhalation or by using a diffuser.

This latest experiment involving essential oils zeros in on the power of scent, unlocking the key to our bodies’ sense of smell and how that relates to fighting disease.

Due to their many benefits, essential oils are being widely researched for their antiviral, antibacterial and fungicidal properties. Terpenes, which are produced by a variety of plants, were thought to influence cancer cell growth; however, how that actually worked was not well understood until recently.

The following is a comment from a trusted professional Robert Tisserand about cancer and essential oils:

There’s no evidence at all that frankincense oil would be helpful in colon cancer. There is evidence from in vitro testing that the following oils might be helpful: cinnamon bark, lime, rose, turmeric and caraway. However, there is virtually nothing known about appropriate dosing. A clinical aromatherapist might be able to help you. A very promising treatment is turmeric extract high in curcumin, usually available in capsule form. There is a lot of information online about curcumin, turmeric and cancer.

essential oil scientific research on the human brain

This is so interesting, a must-read for updates on essential oil scientific research on the brain:

Ananda Apothecary wrote:

Scientific research regarding health and medical applications of essential oils is going on regularly at universities and other facilities around the world. Many of these studies are immediately applicable to aromatherapy practitioners for improved health and well-being, while others spark interest in the potential of essential oils as a part of future medicine protocols. Modern scientific research is regularly confirming aromatherapy’s practical medical applications!

Here’s a look at two important journal publications just released about direct effects of essential oils in the brain, reviewed by the staff at Ananda Aromatherapy of Boulder, Colorado.

In the first study, performed at the Institute for Environmental Sciences at the University of Shizuoka Japan, Tarragon, Inula, Lavender and Tulsi~Holy Basil were tested for their ability to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity. In other words, their ability to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, the primary information-handling neurotransmitter. Supplements with this action are becoming more and more popular with regular folks trying to increase their smarts, and are used to treat dementia (Alzheimer’s) by increasing the amount of acetylcholine in the brain.

Of the essential oils tested, Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus) produced in France had the highest inhibition of acetylcholinesterase, though all the oils tested showed significant AChE inhibitory activity. All the oils were analyzed by GC/MS to find the individual natural chemical constituents of the oils which produced this effect. Of real interest is that 1,8-Cineol had the greatest inhibitory activity of all the constituents examined. Why this this interesting? Rosemary essential oil has long been considered a mental stimulant (we find in the office to be particularly brightening) and has been studied for this effect, improving mental focus in humans through a variety of tests. The primary component of Rosemary essential oil is 1,8-Cineol (it is also a major constituent of Eucalyptus oils, used for invigorating massages and steam treatments).

Also of great interest was that the effect of these constituents relative to their amounts in the complete natural essential oil was not very high — meaning the complete essential oil, with nature’s balance of the chemical constituents, was synergistically more effective than the singly-extracted molecules. This is a theme in aromatherapy: that the complete natural essential oil will generally have more benefits than a single ‘active ingredient’ extracted in a laboratory — Therapeutic grade oils are those that retain the natural balance of the plant’s, with proper harvesting and distillation methods.

The second study very much ties in with the first, as it demonstrates the ability of Lemon essential oil to directly prevent dementia (Alzheimer’s).

How can you benefit from these studies? The best method is to find a cold-air nebulizing diffuser. These employ no water or other carrier, and make a very fine mist of essential oils that easily evaporate into your room. These are the only diffusers that create high concentrations of essential oils in the air — enough to show measurable biochemical effects. A ‘warming’ diffuser or other non-nebulizing style will allow you to smell the aroma, though the concentration will be significantly lower.
