QOTW: What Are You Bringing To The Pantry Party?

QOTW_ Pantry Party

Let’s help each other figure out what to do with those odds and ends we pushed back to the deep caverns of the pantry.

This is what we’d like help with: lots of dried chives, thin rice cakes we’ve lost a taste for, and a handful of dried sage flowers. Hmm. I’m stumped.

Suggestions, please!

 

Thanks for playing,

Gina

Healthy Emotional Connections With Diane Novack – Saturday Spotlight

Saturday Spotlight

As a dealer of hope, love and peace my job is to spread joy, happiness and be the light to others. I do this in many ways, the underlying energy and intent is to be the light many are searching for; light the path to joy and happiness; to shine in love and peace so there is hope in all situations.

I practice Reiki daily, sending healing in various ways like connecting through FB, texts, phone calls, and now Zoom is a daily stop for me.

Then I found Send Out Cards* to stay connected…which is so important in isolation.  All of us are living a different normal and don’t know how long we will be separated from family and friends. We are feeling a sense of loss and fear. People like me are working to raise the vibration of as many as we can, therefore raising the vibration of the world. There is hope. There is love flowing. Peace of mind is a choice. My desire is that I help one person who helps another who helps another to have hope, feel and give love, and feel peaceful.

With Send Out Cards I design a card online, in the process infuse it with Reiki, input my friend’s address, press send. The card is printed exactly how I like, with my friend’s special pictures, sayings that are meaningful to us, even games for the grandsons like mazes, word searches and crosswords. The card is sent directly to my friend, family member, or business associate without me going to the store, buying stamps and remembering to put it in the mail. I can act on my kindness promptings with just a couple clicks and spend less, too!

I heard someone say life is like an EKG; there are peaks and valleys and that is good. When the line on the monitor is straight and calm, this life is over, we move on. Especially during the low times; I remind myself…This is life – ups and downs are what keeps me in this game.

I have always been an intuitive and empathic healer; although I didn’t know what that was for much of my life. It wasn’t until I started to realize my gifts, receiving a Reiki Attunement in 2009, that my life began to shift and I became more aware of my purpose in this life. BTW, I was a Grandma at the time so be patient, do the good things and clarity will come to you.

In the Fall of 2019 it was becoming apparent that I needed to get back to my calling, start practicing Reiki more; life had changed and I let Reiki sit on the side lines for a while. I wondered what my next big step would be. There were no big A-Ha moments until 2020…historic 2020. In February my husband had a heart attack. There was no warning, he seemed healthy and active; he was playing softball at the time. Thankfully he received exceptional treatment quickly and is now doing well, pleasantly surprising the doctors. We had already started to hear about Covid-19 but it seemed “over there.” It would be contained and not reach us so far away. We now know there are no borders and here we are in the midst of a pandemic. We are living in a new world. Life will be different as we live whatever life has become.

People who adjust, seek kindness and spread that shit around will be able to move forward quickest and easiest. We all will suffer loss in some way…some more than others and that is a sadness we share. There is hope. If we practice our gifts, share hope, Love and peace, the world will be a better place.

Hope, Love, Light and Peace to you all.

Diane

QOTW: How Are You Exercising?

How are you EXERCISING_

I’m doing my custom Yoga routine, which stretches my shoulders, neck, and upper thighs, daily unless I get too sidetracked. The dog and I walk every few days to get the mail and take out the trash. I hope we’ll return to our 20 minute daily walks soon. Then there’s the stepper, which I use once or twice a week. Yesterday I did close to 600 steps in 15 minutes. I feel good!

 

I appreciate the time we spend together,

Gina

What Direction Can You Get From Your Destiny Number?

Nutiva Hemp Protein Review + Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe -Tried It, Reviewed It, Recommend It

Nutiva Protein Powder

After trying every protein powder in the health food store and in my Urthbox delivery for the last three years, I know this is the best. Why? It’s organic. It’s hemp, which is a known superfood for its complete protein profile. It’s 100% hemp protein, no sugars or flavors added. I love the grind they use, which isn’t too fine, the way you often see with rice protein powder, which means that it blends well and has a nice texture. More bonuses – widely available, gluten-free, dairy-free, and there’s no bitter taste like you see with rice protein powder or pea protein powder.

Here’s an easy recipe to try out. Once you know the basics, you can take your smoothies as far as your imagination will go.

Banana Berry Smoothie

Ingredients

1 Banana

1 C. Strawberries (note: freeze if you want a chilled smoothie and freeze the banana, too,  if you want an icy smoothie.)

1 1/2 C. milk of your choice (choose one with protein). We use Trader Joe’s Simply Almond and Good Karma + Protein. Both are unsweetened. If you use animal-derived milk, buy organic, grass-fed, and raw, if the laws where you live allow for it. If not, get as close to that standard as you can.)

1/4 C. Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Powder

Tools

Measuring cups

Smoothie blender and attachments

Directions

Put the fruit into the blender cup. Add protein powder. Then add milk. If you like a thinner smoothie, you may want to add more milk at this point.

Blend for 45 seconds. Enjoy!

One handy reason why smoothies became and stayed popular is how versatile they are. You can hide put supplements in and never taste them. I use MSM powder (known for its bitter taste and for its effectiveness) for inherited arthritis. It helps me use my hands all day long without painful, forced rest breaks. Another supplement I put in my smoothie is liquid iodine, which I personally have a high need for to keep my thyroid happy.

Smoothies are fast, easy, and delicious. Pro tip: use only the best ingredients. The fewer toxins you take in, the fewer you have to detox. This way all the good stuff works extra well to give you longevity, happy taste buds, and the freedom to satisfy your cravings.

I have a delicious mocha smoothie recipe. If you want to see it, comment and I will share.

Do you have a favorite smoothie combination?

Nutrition is one of my greatest passions and it’s important for every living being. That’s why I love sharing easy, tasty ways to nourish yourself.

You know what else is important? Having lots of organized tools to turn to when you’re figuring out new parts of your life. Like the ones in this workbook.

One reviewer called it “A personal blueprint for happiness.” You can get your copy here.

I include a monthly workbook exercise in my newsletter, which you can sign up for here. You’ll get 6 Fast Vitality Boosters delivered to your inbox immediately.

Moments With Marni & How Good Can It Get – LOA Manifesting On 4-4

Every day is special if you make it that way. Today is more so, because it is the 4th day, of the 4th month, of a 4 year. What that means in terms of numerology is that it is full of 4 energy – which we use to build what we want through discipline and work.

What do you want to bring into your life that you’re willing to work for? Now, with that in mind, watch these two videos about manifesting. Remember to keep it easy, effortless, joyful, graceful, in the highest good of all, and harming no one.

 

 

These two ladies have been inspiring me for a long time and it is a pleasure to share their videos with you.

 

Peace and love,

Gina

 

Destiny poem videos are coming soon. Do you know your destiny number?

Destinycalc

Note that if you are seeing this post on a mobile device, use the desktop setting so the calculations below line up in a way that makes sense.

Here’s how you find out what your destiny number is:

Find the number equivalent for each letter of your full name as it appears on your birth certificate, using this letter/number grid. I’m using a Pythagorean grid.

Our example is going to be a woman I greatly admire –
Maya Angelou. Her name at birth: Marguerite Annie Johnson
M   a    r    g    u    e    r    i     t     e      A   n    n    i     e        J    o    h    n   s    o    n
4 + 1 + 9 + 7 +3 + 5 + 9 + 9 + 2 + 5      1 + 5 + 5 + 9 + 5       1 + 6 + 8 + 5 +1+ 6 + 5
                         =                                              =                                     =
                         54                                           25                                   32
                        5+4                                         2+5                                 3+2
                          =                                              =                                    =
                           9                                            7                                     5
                           9  +                                         7  +                                5 =   21
                                                                     2 + 1 = 3
Maya Angelou is a destiny number 3, a creative, self-expressive destiny she fulfilled despite any setbacks she faced.

Small Business Love

We find ourselves in potentially life-changing circumstances, where many of our main sources of income have completely stopped. Some of us have secondary businesses which have become our primary incomes. That’s why I thought we could help each other by sharing what we have to offer and have the opportunity to buy what we need from a home or small business.

We hope the many small things we do are helpful.

 

Now, I have something exciting and new for you!

Perspective

Blessings In Every Situation

We’re going through a lot together, which is why I’d like to ask if you are finding blessings in your life?

What we’ve noticed in our home is that we are aware of how dependent we became on paper goods, and how we’re adapting without them. We’ve realized how many things we took for granted and are finding new appreciation for every person who contributes to giving us a good life.

What blessing are you finding?

 

Gina
