Good morning and happy Friday.
Dan and I are getting ready for the visit to the Grand Canyon and a visit to our friends in Arizona.
Plus, visiting with our daughter in Minnesota.
This means finding winter underwear.
COOL, weather in the forecast.
Two more weeks!
You know I will take pictures and share them with my viewers.
Until then, let's get back to the seven steps for helping you get unstuck and get into action to achieve your goals.
How to release old trauma from your nervous system and start retraining it with new empowering ways of being in the world.
Today the seventh step, harness the power of your mind by choosing a better thought.
You can shift how you feel and use that positive energy to fuel your action steps toward reaching the goals you have set for yourself.
Imagine what is possible for you if you were to remove the negative thoughts, the limiting beliefs, the old habitual ways of being that no longer serve your growth together from your nervous system.
Really sit with that possibility for a moment.
By tapping into this simple seven-step process you can start to release pain, trepidation, old beliefs, and pre-conceived notions about how your life, your career, your relationships are supposed to look or feel and up-level you are thinking to a new set of possibilities.
The truth is, as you release more of these old patterns and habitual ways of thinking or seeing yourself at a deeper subconscious level, you create space for new beliefs, new habits, and levels of success to arise within you.
Literally rewiring the neural pathways in your brain for greater happiness and peace of mind.
More importantly, it will enable you to be more present with others in the moment, instead of living your life based on fears from your past.
Until tomorrow, the three biggest things that hold people back from growing.
Since this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, every post this week; I will share something that I have written or done in the past that has to do with this very topic.

12 Foods for Breast Cancer Prevention
Loading your plate with a rainbow of fruits and veggies is the foundation of a breast cancer prevention diet, and these same food choices can also help you live better after a breast cancer diagnosis.
By Madeline Vann, MPH
Medically reviewed by Niya Jones, MD, MPH
Broccoli has garnered the most attention as a breast cancer prevention food.
Research has shown it blocks tumor growth, explains Marian, preventing the further spread of cancer if it does occur.
You can also get this anti-cancer benefit from other cruciferous veggies, including cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and kale; but you most likely need to eat one or more of these vegetables every day, she advises.
Garlic seems to have an impact on cell cycling, explains Marian.
That is the process by which a normal, healthy cell might become cancerous.
Credit for regulating this goes to the component of garlic called allyl sulfide.
Allyl sulfides are found throughout the onion family, so adding garlic or onions to your recipes on a regular basis may aid in breast cancer prevention.
Keep in mind, though, that anti-cancer nutrition studies have largely been done on garlic extract supplements rather than on garlic used for cooking.
Also, people on blood thinners and certain other medications should talk with their doctor before taking garlic supplements to avoid possible drug interactions.
An apple a day may keep breast cancer away, but there is a catch.
If you normally peel your apple and toss away the colorful wrapping, you are also tossing away a rich source of antioxidants, fiber, and other compounds needed for anti-cancer nutrition.
Lab studies show that apple peel can fight the spread of cancer cells.
The good news is that you do not need exotic varieties, this research came from readily available Gala apples, so add them to your breast cancer prevention shopping list.
Research into the role of pomegranates is in its preliminary stages, but Marian says a cell culture study suggests that the fruit contains a compound that might help fight cancer’s growth; especially estrogen-dependent cancers.
Pomegranates make a delicious and healthy addition to any breast cancer management plan or breast cancer prevention diet, in either fruit or juice form.
Adding them to your grocery list may benefit others in your family, too, they also help fight heart disease and prostate cancer.
Get out your nutcracker!
Walnuts contain many helpful nutrients and healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which help your body fight inflammation.
Research also suggests that walnuts may slow the growth of breast cancer tumors, so this tasty nut could play a role in breast cancer management even after diagnosis.
Other great sources of omega-3 fatty acids include certain fish and fish oil.
You really want to take fish oils daily, Marian recommends.
Fish is also a smart lean protein source and a fantastic addition to a breast cancer prevention plan, because anti-cancer nutrition recommendations include limiting your intake of red meat and processed meats, such as bacon and packaged deli meats.
Opt for salmon, mackerel, sea bass, and tuna as breast cancer diet choices instead.
Shopping for healthy fats will inevitably lead you to flaxseed oil, but this is an instance where your best anti-cancer nutrition choice is the seed itself, ground into a flour-like dust.
When you use milled flaxseed, it has a component called lignans, explains Marian.
Lignans may decrease cancer growth, making it perfect for a breast cancer management diet.
You can buy ground flaxseed or grind the seeds yourself using a coffee grinder.
Then sprinkle the flaxseed on salads or include it in muffins.
Soy has received mixed reviews regarding adult breast cancer prevention, but Marian says mothers may be interested to know that when preteen girls eat two servings of soybean products a day, they reap anti-cancer nutrition benefits later in life.
On the other hand, she recommends against adult women taking soy or isoflavone supplements as part of a breast cancer diet; these products contain estrogen-like compounds, which could prove to be too much of a good thing.
When it comes to breast cancer prevention, think about eating more carrots, cantaloupe, and sweet potatoes; foods rich in the form of vitamin A known as carotenoids.
Women who have higher levels of carotenoids in their bloodstream seem to be at lower risk for breast cancer, says Marian.
Orange vegetables and fruits are most often held up as sources of this powerful compound for breast cancer prevention, but there are six hundred different carotenoids, she says.
If you want to ramp up the carotenoids in your breast cancer diet, just make sure you get lots of orange, red, yellow, and even dark green foods.
Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries add color, variety, and flavor to your anti-cancer nutrition plan.
They are also power packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can aid in breast cancer prevention, so make them part of your breast cancer diet.
Recent research suggests that blueberries play a role in breast cancer management by enhancing the effect of the often-prescribed drug tamoxifen in fighting breast cancer cells.
Green tea and white tea both contain catechins, extracts that seem to show some benefit in breast cancer prevention.
Research suggests that green tea is particularly effective at protecting your cells against environmental exposures that might increase the risk for cancer.
However, says Marian, you might have to drink a lot of tea; four or more cups a day to achieve this effect.
The spice that gives curry its beautiful yellow color contains a chemical called curcumin.
Lab studies using curcumin supplements have shown that it could play a role in helping fight breast cancer tumors when combined with certain drug-based therapy.
It also may have an anti-inflammatory effect that could protect your overall health.
You will need supplements to get enough curcumin, but putting a veggie, curry and a full of broccoli, onions, and garlic on your breast cancer prevention menu could help make your anti-cancer nutrition plan more fun.
OCTOBER 14th, Dan, and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about October that is so significant during this month?
World Egg Day – October 14, 2022
World Egg Day is held annually on the second Friday of October, on October 14 this year, and it is a time to cherish and celebrate the versatile, affordable, delicious, and nutritious food item that provides sustainable nutrition to help feed the world.
Can you believe that eggs contain over fifteen kinds of vitamins and minerals?
They can be fried, boiled, or even eaten raw, singly, or as part of a meal.
Although we have no definitive answer to the question of “Which came first?
The chicken or the egg?” we know that the history of eggs is almost as old as that of humans.
From ancient times, humans nurtured chickens to obtain eggs.
For centuries, eggs have played a significant role in feeding families all over the world.
They are one of nature’s highest quality sources of protein, perfectly packaged for versatility and affordability.
The protein contained within them is essential in the development of the brain and muscles, play a key role in disease prevention, and contribute to general well-being.
Eggs are rich sources of selenium; vitamin A, D, K, B6, and B12; and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper.
They are particularly known to be a source of choline, which helps in brain development and sharpens memory.
The history of the egg expands far beyond mere culinary concern and, in fact, has had significant importance in multiple cultures for reasons both decorative and religious, with a particularly popular example being Easter eggs.
World Egg Day was established in 1996, at the IEC conference in Vienna to celebrate and appreciate the importance and benefit of eggs to us all.
Since then, the day of celebration has grown and evolved.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
NOW IS NOW. THERE IS NOTHING BUT NOW. THIS, RIGHT HERE, IS ALL THERE IS.
Today Dan and I will be continuing the book, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY; SMELL
SMELLS AND MOODS-
AROMATHERAPY FOR RELAXATION
Aromatherapy brings about a sense of physical and emotional well-being by using the natural aromas of selected essential oils, extracted from many different plants.
Rose, lavender, rosemary, ginger, eucalyptus, lemon. Cardamom, and pine are just some examples.
The essential oils in these plants can be used in a variety of simple ways in your everyday live, such as in bath, vaporizers, and massage blends; their fragrances instantly uplift your mood.
As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to find that we all have our own blueprint.
Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.
Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the separate ways through body, heart, and soul.
It is all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.
Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.
It is important to know how it works!
Cancer: Civilization's - No. 2 Killer
Continuing from yesterday, when the epidemiological facts are considered, even briefly, it becomes apparent that the "diseases of civilization", of which cancer is only one, are directly caused by faulty living habits practiced by the supposedly more civilized populations, and when the different dietary and other living habits are compared, it soon becomes further apparent what the main faults are.
And to understand how these faults (mainly dietary) lead to the chronic toxemia which provokes once healthy cells to change form, only a rudimentary knowledge of elementary biology is required, together with the acceptance that all life forms are capable of adaptation to a changed environment if necessary for survival.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Saturday, letting go gives us freedom,
and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
If, in our heart, we still cling to anything, anger,
anxiety, or possessions, we cannot be free.
