Fundraising: Want vs. Need

Today I was feeling compelled to talk about the things we find that we really want and we work hard to get. You get so close to acheiving your goal, then something comes up and changes your direction.

Want vs. Need. This is where I find myself today. I am very close to having raised all the money I needed to get the Almighty Vita-Mix dream machine. As it turns out, my husband needs some work done on his truck…so, there you have it. I found myself in a dilema. Should I start another fundraising venture for this need? I didn’t mention to him the money I had set aside for the Vita-Mix and I was feeling guilty, then I suddenly realized that I was the one who created this additional money and I could do it again. “Givers gain.” “Money flows to me easily and often”. This is an abundant Universe and I certainly will see the money flow back to me. We need to have the repairs done, but I Want the Vita Mix.

This brings me to the relevance of The RawMa Blog, Raw Food Nutrition and you. You WANT to be Healthy. You NEED to be Healthy. Your body is calling to you to create a sustainable environment for your health to live. You also WANT to enjoy the food that you eat but do you NEED to enjoy it that badly? Ahhh…now we’re getting somewhere.

You have a deep connection to food and it has taken control of your life. More to the point, you have allowed your mind to take control of your decisions. Ouch! That hurts. I know, because it happened to me.

Let me break it down for you. Here is what happened to me and maybe to you also:

Taste Buds and Mind automatic reflex –
WANT: Tasty Food, Chocolate, Sweets, Breads, Pasta, Alcohol, etc.
Feelings: Comfort, Safety, Peace
Results: Momentary bliss…then
bloating, guilt, weight gain, more guilt, discussions about it.

VS. NEED
Nutrition
Balance
Happiness
Peace
Resolved inner conflicts

Do the right thing for yourself. You deserve to live a long, happy life. The sacrafice you make today, could result in years added to your life and a ton of happiness and self-satisfaction knowing that YOU…ALL OF YOU – BODY-MIND-SOUL control your actions. You do not need to REACT to events around you. simply observe and let the good stuff stick to you as the bad passes you by. Do Not Engage in the Drama and it will not seek you out. Think about your wants and your needs then apply them to your life. Success can be yours.

Blessings,

RawMa

Raising Money Part II

I’m still working on raising money for the almighty Vita-Mix. I’m doing pretty well with it. I’m up to $210 so far. I’ll be making better Green Smoothies and Almond Butter in no time!

Speaking of SuperFoods, I have the dehydrator working overtime this evening. There is a tray of Sun Burgers, a tray of onion bread, a tray of Almond Bars and A tray of Apple cookies. All Raw of course. I can’t wait to eat tomorrow.

These recipies were really simple and only took a few minutes each to prepare. The key to staying raw for me is to make it as easy as possible for those moments when I am really hungry. If there are a few items prepared ahead of time, I am more likely to grab them instead of something un raw and unfood like. No nutrition, heavily processed food shoved into my mouth unconciously used to be my way of life, but I am living much more mindful these days and I sincerely hope you are too. Times are a changing and we must as well if we will intend to have a bright future that we control.

Blessings,

RawMa

IT’S A CHOICE

What you choose to do today will effect your tomorrow. Sounds simple enough, yet so many of us go unconcious in our choices. As if we go on auto pilot and let our actions and reactions live for us.

Have you considered the BODY, MIND, SOUL connection? Think about this – Your mind makes a choice, your body likes or dislikes it and very much reacts to what you put into it, then your soul is either delighted, or feels punished for the actions. This vicious cycle continues over and over again until we choose to wake up.

Take time to make your decisions, and make some small changes to improve whatever it is you wish, but for God sake WAKE UP! I don’t want to hear you bitch and complain about your poor health, IF YOU are the one who compromised your health and choose to rely on modern medicine to fix you later. Guess what? They won’t. Everything that leads to a healthy being, begins with what YOU choose.

I’m not saying it will be easy. Change is hard at times, but so worth it. What would you give to feel just 10% better tomorrow? You probably don’t even remember what it feels like to FEEL GOOD. I mean really feeling good, with all the aches and pains gone, or at least less present. You can make small changes that will lead to big changes in your body, mind and soul.

I thinks it’s a good idea to choose to be healthy, and so I took steps to accomplish that. I am well on my way, and I hope you will be soon as well.

Could you go RAW for 30 days?

Awww Nuts!

I am nuts about Nuts, but too much of a good thing can weigh you down. When I first went Raw, I feasted on nuts and seeds. That was my source, with some greens here and there. This was my pre-deydrator days, so I wanted to keep it simple. I figured what could be simpler than nuts and seeds. I didn’t take into account the total amount of fat I was taking in, although it was a healthy fat, my calories were much higher than they needed to be. This is a common problem for those who are new to the Raw Lifestyle. After many personal adjustments, I found the perfect balance for my temple. You can do it too. Don’t think it’s all or nothing. Life is a learning process, and getting our beings back to a state of harmony takes a bit of undoing what we have been conditioned to do. Take control of your life and your health. Don’t rely on the doctors as you age. They don’t heal you. They can do some good, and prolong your life, but they are not taught to “Cure” the cause of your health issue. They have been taught to treat the symptoms. Period. It’s time for us all to live in a new Awakened State of Being. Every choice you make should be a concious one.
Blessings,

Mushrooms

I don’t know much about Mushrooms, but I am going to learn. I just found this great website from a local mom that is filled with great information about mushrooms. Check out http://www.powershroom.com to get the dirt!

On a side note, I am feeling excellent today and the wheat grass and greens have been such a blessing. Amazing energy is forming and I will soon be a super hero RawMa! I love the feeling when I am higher than 80% raw. You will too.
