Inevitability

The universe knows no other way than the way of inevitability. If you set your intention and work on your positive mindset the universe only knows how to align you with that exact manifestation. If you go there often, feel what it is really like to already experience that then the universe knows you are really alligned with that as your truth. They will provide the how, the people, the places, the education, the money to make each one of these happen for you.

By spending your time on the how instead of the what you are giving the universe mixed signals and will slow down the inevitability of manifestation.

This is why vision boards can be a powerful tool, they are not filled with the how of the world, the how i will get that money, how i will get that relationship. They are only filled with the images that inspire you. The more you can go into each one of them and put yourself into the feeling of already having that experience the faster you will be given the path to success.

Inevitability will also work in your favor on the fastest course if you pick up on the synchronicity that the universe is trying to give you. Where you recommended to see the same doctor 3 times? Did 2 people in the same hour tell you about why they recommend you travel to another state? These are signals of the least resistance. I like to think of this as you standing in a rushing river. Either way you are going to end up downstream. Are you trying to plant your feet and swim upstream to get to the edge of the river to walk to the nearby city? This will teach you lessons and probably build some strength but how much faster would you end up at the city downstream if you would have just relaxed and grabbed the nearest log and floated to the same city?

Pick up on the signals the universe is giving, follow them out of curiosity and the path to your inevitable will be enlightened.

Questioning why things happened in your past is also an energy drain and is a step backwards. Stop spending all of your time reflecting and start spending your time watching for the next step to move forward. Clean up old messes with people and step into the possibility of being your word and showing up differently vs. the way you may have acted in the past.

The choice is yours.

All of the dreams, the challenges and next steps are inevitable.

The path of least resistance will be yours for the choosing.

Fear is Excitement without Breath

I have been taking with a lot of people about fear recently and then a wonderful woman in my life talked about excitement and it all fell together. Fear is what holds us back and keeps us small. Our ego steps in whenever their is opportunity for growth and brings up the fears around that potential growth. You have to be able to take the leap, be unreasonable and trust that on the other side of fear will be growth and a world of wonder that you would have never dreamed possible.

Fear is healthy but also is an opportunity. Fear is what makes you act in actual unsafe situations. But, with practice you will be able to determine what is unsafe vs. what is ego.

Your natural fight or flight does not need to be activated all the time. Fight or flight is your entire system being in a state of excitement. Your senses are heightened and you are READY. In this situation you are without breath. You are only in action mode. In danger this is perfect because all you can do is act. When you start to feel this excitement I challenge you to take a breath.

Take a breath.

Bring yourself back into your body.

Question if you are actually in danger.

Question the way ego is keeping you small.

Question what would your life be like if you acted out of excitement vs. fear.

When you are ready to grow you will come RIGHT up to the edge of change. You will be in a state of excitement. Ego will step in and tell you all the reasons that you should not take the action to move on the other side of the line.

And so it is.

Ready for the real reflection?

All relationships are a mirror.

You may not be ready for it and when the relationship is going sour, it can be hard but you need to take a deep dive inside during these hard times so both people in the relationship can rise.

The universe will provide you each person who you need at exactly the right time in order for you to peel away a layer and understand more about yourself. You just have to be ready and willing to stare that mirror in the face until you can figure out what it is reflecting back on you.

You. You. You.

It all rolls back to you. Instead of point the finger at the other person, I recommend that you first need to start by pointing it at yourself. If you actually take this look inside you will see how or the ways you changed yourself during that relationship. What “little things” did that person do to you or what are the things that just drove you crazy? What were you not able to communicate? What were you not able to hear in what they were saying. What filter are you seeing them through. What blinders have you put on.

Examples:

When he/she said they want you to be honest no matter what, and then you just omitted some of the details, then you did not hear what they said.

I am not condoning violence or verbal abuse or any bad situations.

I want everyone to take a dive inside and REALLY look at yourself. How are you hearing people and what of your personal issues are you filtering conversations through?

Sometimes mirrors show up that you may not be ready for. If you are not ready to look yourself in the mirror in a pit-fall of a relationship, you will create the same issue inside a different one. (Sound familiar? “I just cant seem to meet a nice guy/girl?” “I only date bad guys/girls.” ) Sometimes when you wake up and realize it was you… then you can see people and old relationships through a whole new lens and possibility.

This work is hard. This work is meaningful but this hard, meaningful work on yourself will allow your relationships and your communication to soar.

There is so much opportunity if you are willing to be vulnerable and listen to your own stories you are see people live into. It takes two to tango and 50% of that relationship is you vs. 100% of what is being done “to you”.

Watch your patterns and see them and when someone asks you about them instead of becoming defensive really look at why things are stressing you out. It is an internal reflection that is there for you to choose.

I recently went through this with a partner. They wouldn’t respond to my calls or my messages. I had a bit of a melt down but then choose to look inside to see what was wrong with me. I couldn’t understand what I had done wrong to change them and push them away. After a few days, I was able to finally see later that the way I was acting was also pushing them away. When I go up into my head instead of just sharing with them I create the push away.

By me not sharing that they had not called me babe I was creating an emotional barrier of “I guess I am not good enough.” By sharing this vulnerability and need I opened myself up and shared how it affected me and then was able to get into their shoes and really support them through their own struggles. By sharing where my brain goes and telling them I was not feeling “good enough” we broke down a mirror and we are able to see eachother again.

The reason you see it in someone else is because you can see it inside yourself.

What reflections are you ready to see? What ones are you working on? Which ones keep showing up?

And so it is.

Pancakes!!!

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love Pancakes!!! When I was growing up EVERY Saturday my dad would make pancakes from scratch.

Now, I still love pancakes but have found ways to expand the volume and fill them with protein.

Macros

340cal

34C | 3F | 40P | 6Fib

Ingredients (per serving):

    53g Kodiak Cakes, protein packed buttermilk flapjack and waffle mix
    100g shredded zucchini
    1g stevia
    138g egg whites
    1 second spray oil
    Toppings of choice

I use the shredded zucchini to double the volume but it still keeps the same flavor of the pancakes. I also use the egg whites instead of water as my mixing agent. This increases the protein. I like a sweeter pancake so the stevia takes it from a waffle flavor to a pancake.

Costco carries these giant boxes of pancake mix! It’s the best price I have found!!!

Step 1: Shred zucchini

Step 2: Add stevia to zucchini. I put the zucchini in first so that the pancake mix doesn’t stick to my bowl. I also love this 4 cup mixing cup. It allows me to just pour right into the pan.

Step 3: Add pancake mix

Step 4: Add egg whites

Step 5: mix with a fork

Step 6: Spray pan and cook pancakes, I find that I have to use a rubber scraper to get them to flatten out and become round… that pesky zucchini makes them weird shapes

Step 7: Stack and enjoy

I get pretty creative with my toppings, this particular day I used the Walden Farms chocolate syrup and raw unsweetened coconut to make “German Chocolate Cake – Pancakes”

Don’t Should On Me

definition: should

SHo͝od,SHəd/

verb

1 1.
used to indicate obligation, duty, or correctness, typically when criticizing someone’s actions.


Don’t should on me.

This is my life and this is my experience and I get to be the one who decides who, what, and where things happen. When someone is trying to force me to do something they they are judging where I am currently.

“You should not go to that bank.”

“You should not drink so much coffee.”

And worse yet, we do this to ourselves! I dare you to take note of your inner dialog. Dive in and really listen to the number of times that you say should to yourself in one day.

“I should go to the gym.

I should have gotten up at the first alarm.

I should get off the couch.”

Just, STOP.

Accept where you are, stop the shoulding and do something about it. There is and there is not. If you stop the judgment, the “ought to be” and just live in the moment you are free.

If you look at the definition of should you can see that it has a negative connotation and immediately causes you to put up a barrier. There’s no reason and there so many other ways to communicate with individuals and then with yourself. Be kind to yourself, know that exactly where you are today is exactly where you’re supposed to be. The things you are experiencing today are the things that you manifested and it is your time. You can’t go back so spending your time, mental space and energy in the past is just a waste.

When you stop “shoulding” on the people around you you set them free to live their best lives. You can recommend and ask “can I share with you what I would do?” This gives them the authorization to say yes or no, instead of spewing your own “shoulds” on them.

By removing should from your vocabulary, you have the freedom to live your life. You’ve removed any judgment or criticism of the past, and today. This is giving you the permission to just live and love.

I dare the next time someone says should, that you say don’t “should on me”. Watch their face and watch them analyzing.

Go live your best life.

The PIMP grandma

My fabulous grandma passed away on 8.22.18. In her remembrance I am shooting these short videos to always remember the hilarious moments she gave me.

Why I referred to my grandma as the pimp grandma:

Cha cha cha

And so it is

Vegan “Cheese” Sauce

I bought nutritional yeast flakes and so I’m writing a series of recipes that use them up. I am loving it!

This was an easy recipe that adds a lot of flavor to basically anything you want to put it on.

Makes 6 servings of sauce

119 Calories | 6.2C, 6.4F, 9.2P, 4.9Fib (Macros for just for the sauce)

Ingredients

  • 28g coconut oil
  • 320g unsweetened almond milk
  • 2g ground cumin
  • 2g ground paprika
  • 2g chili powder
  • 1g black pepper
  • Lemon juice
  • 100g nutritional yeast flakes (adds the nutty/cheesy flavor)
  • Salt to taste at time of serving
  • How to:
    1. In a pot, measure out oil.

    1. In the same pot, add almond milk or milk of choice.

    1. Place on stove and begin to simmer.

    1. Once at a simmer, add spices and lemon juice.

    Simmer for about 2 mins (enough time to wash a few dishes or begin to cook a spaghetti squash).
    1. Add nutritional yeast flakes.

    1. Whisk the mixture so there are no chunks of yeast.

    Let thicken for about 1-3 minutes.
    1. Portion or serve.

I added this to spaghetti squash (still vegan) and then I added ground turkey (not vegan but delicious!)

Cowboy Caviar

One of my favorite “dip” recipes that I can take anywhere and people love! It is fresh, healthy and delicious!

This makes a giant bowl of gluten free, dairy free fun!

~16 servings or cups in the bowl.

87 Calories | 18.9C, 0.4F, 3.4P, 4.4Fib

Ingredients

  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can green chili peppers
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can black eyed peas
  • 200g diced red onion
  • 150g diced raw yellow pepper
  • 325g diced raw red pepper
  • 200g diced raw green pepper
  • 300g diced raw orange pepper
  • 96g zesty Italian fat free dressing

  • 40g chopped raw cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • Garlic powder, salt, pepper & Tabasco sauce added to taste
  • Optional: add avocado or jalapeños (adjust macros on your own)
  • There is a lot of chopping but once you get it all done its worth it! I recommend making this in the morning or the day before so all the flavors have time to fall together.
  • When buy the ingredient, the most difficult one to find will be the black eyed peas. In the whole line of beans there will be 1 can.
  • How I make this:
    Put a colander in the sink.
    Put 2 pieces of paper towel in a giant mixing bowl.
    Open a can, rinse the ingredient in the colander, put ingredient on top of the paper towel to let dry.
    Put two my pieces of paper towel on top of that ingredient.
    Keep layering.
    While this is drying out chop all the fresh/raw ingredients.
    Remove paper towels.
    Mix canned ingredients with raw ingredients.
    Add dressing, cilantro, and seasoning to taste.
    Serve on a chip, on a salad or on top of meat.

Happy sharing and eating!
