I just saw a lower number on the scale than I’ve seen in 20 years, and I’m neither dehydrated nor nude. I rock! My cheat food this week was vanilla Chobani — I love its creamy, custardy, tartness plus it’s zero fat. Yogurt gives me hot flashes like a motherbear but only if I eat too much at one sitting. I’ve changed my eating habits drastically since my previous carcass eating lifetime of processed and fast food. I tied cause to effect and, one by one, stopped eating the foods that my body couldn’t handle — for me, that was fats and processed foods. Now, each year since 2005, I find myself being led to more healthful food and lifestyle choices, and working out a little more each year. I’m younger and healthier now than I was 10 years ago. I feel my diet has sent me back 20 years. Continue reading

Sometimes I feel like a marshmallow on a stick at the edge of the flame. I am cooked faster by some people and events than by others, depending on how close to the situation I want to get, and how much I allow it to touch me.
Melatonin is a hormone that is produced and secreted at night, and only at night, by the pineal gland. Exposure to light at night completely suppresses the production of melatonin. It doesn’t require very bright lights to stop the production of melatonin—bright indoor white light at 300 lux) as well as very dim light at 0.25 lux, were both sufficient to prevent all melatonin production in laboratory animals. Moonlight is about one lux. Research conducted by the National Institutes of Health showed that even a very brief light exposure suppresses melatonin production in lab animals: a one minute exposure to white light every two hours during the night suppressed melatonin production by 65 percent. The only type of light that does not affect melatonin production is red light. Continue reading

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
