Chaos and Breakdown and Your Unique Purpose

It would be great if life were always like a summer yoga class with harp music, but it’s not!
Breakdown and chaos, I’m seeing it everywhere; certainly in our current global/political situation, and also, in our individual lives. Lately, in my own life, and in the lives of others, I see breakdowns in marriages, jobs, health, or family situations, that we never dreamed would fall apart.  It seems like a tidal wave in our culture—at least from my viewpoint. 

Taking this in, I would say that it’s essential for all of us on the earth right now to take a deep breath, and reconnect with our unique mission in this world.  Why are here at this particular time in history?  What are we being called to do? 
It’s the moment for each of us to tap into what truly sustains us, what lasts, and what is most important to us.  When we are connected to this, we bring this energy into our actions in the world. 

The world needs each of us to be tuned into our True Purpose, Soul’s Path, or dharma in life, now more than ever.

 
The cool thing is, when you begin to make the connection to your bigger purpose, the results can be amazing. The process begins to create much more energy; it’s like discovering a lightning bolt of energy to fuel your life!
 
If you are feeling sadness, fear, anxiety, or depletion—those might be signs you need to reconnect at a deeper level to your Soul’s Path.  
STEPS TO RECONNECT:
Start to do this by relaxing more, creating a little more space and ease in your life.  
—Go for a stroll after dinner
—Give yourself a few min. of silence after lunch.  
—Take a 2 min. stretch break every hour at work.  
Believe it or not, taking small actions like this to create some breathing space, and doing it EVERYDAY will help you recconect with your True Purpose, and that will help, not only you, but all of us.

Deep Peace has Cellular Consequences.

Spring is a great time to relax and renew; just soaking up a little spring sunshine could have benefit your mood and energy levels.

If you’ve been feeling the effects of accumulated challenges over the last months, take some extra time to slow down and rest.

It’s simple, easy, and free, and it has fabulous cellular consequesnces.

Namaste,

Hydration is Where It's At!  

Are you drinking enough water lately?  I’m talking about at least 8 eight oz. glasses.

If you’re not, you might have these symptoms:

-Dry skin

-Creaking joints

-Big bags under your eyes

-Cravings or overeating issues

-Irregular bowel movements

-Sore muscles that don’t seem to recover

-Even SLOWER brain function!  (I need all the help I can get here.)

The stakes are high for staying hydrated!

2 tips to help you nail it:

1) Upon arising drink a BIG glass of warm water.  Just glug it down; it will help clear your pranic channels and even help you eliminate.

2) Put a large water bottle on your desk, or where you will see it during the day

Give it a try.  Let me know if these tips help!

Wintery Course-Grained Salad with a Warming, Spicy Dressing

My family loves this easy, colorful salad; fortifying and warming. Perfect for the end of winter.

 (This is a variation on the “somewhat arabian salad with barley and marinated mushrooms” from Homemade Winter by Yvette Van Boven)

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup (50g) Farro or Barley

Salt

 For the Dressing:

Juice of 1 lemon

2 cloves garlic minced

1 1/2 Tsp dijon mustard

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cardamom

1/4 tsp coriander

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp fennel seeds

1tsp salt

1/2 olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

For the Salad:

9oz. (250 g) mushrooms cut into quarters

9 oz (250) green beans

2 large carrots, sliced

2/3 cup (150 g) cooked chickpeas, rinsed if from a can

1/3 cup (20g) chopped fresh parsley

1/2 cup (60g) pecan halves, briefly toasted in a dry skillet

Directions:

Make the farro and the dressing:

Rinse the farro throughly in a sieve, place it in a saucepan cover with water by at least 3 inches, and with the lid askew, simmer about 40 min, until tender.  Make sure it does not simmer dry, add water as needed.

While you cook the farro, whisk all the dressing ingredients together except the oil, whisking in the oil at the end to blend it nicely.

Make the Salad:

Add the mushrooms to the dressing, and let them marinate until ready to serve.  (if you don’t have much time, quickly saute them a bit, and then put them in the dressing.)

In a big pot of boiling water:

Blanch the greenbeans and carrot slices separately for a few min until they are al dente.  Drain and rinse under cold water..  Set the beans aside.  Add the carrot and the chickpeas to the mushrooms in the bowl.

When the farro is done, drain it, rinse with cold water, and add it to the vegetables in the bowl.  Mix well.

Sprinkle the salad with parsley and, if you have time, let it sit for at least 30 min. before serving to allow the flavors to be absorbed.

Just before serving fold the beans and the pecans into the salad.

Enjoy!
