In My Room

Wow.  If only in my room. Lol.  This video came my way today and I’ve got to share!

I caption reads that this is Meghan Currie.  You can find more info about her here.

I love the way she uses the entire room. There’s no mat to ‘keep her in the box’. The time lapse makes this look like a dance routine. She makes this look really easy.


Getting Out of the Way

There are moments when we all share bits of ourselves with others in a strong enough way that it’s felt deep inside. For some people, those moments are short and elusive. For Britney @ Miracle Of Mind (or net TV show), those moments happen on a regular basis. It’s like coming across an actress that is able to reproduce the emotions or a scene in line with the actions written in the script, Britney finds moments when the ego steps aside to let the inner knowing out. These moments are powerful and she’s made the effort to record the moments on film – so you can enjoy them too!

Not too long ago, when surfing to experience open souls, I came across a short video of Britney talking up some subject, but what caught my eye were her actions – rather than words. It’s like when you hear someone emotionally sing a song rather than technically sing the song – you feel the performance. When you feel it, you experience what’s going on rather than simply hearing it.

The experience is key here. Regardless of the words, what we can learn from Britney is that doing (lol) is exactly what she shows with each of her videos. She’s made a conscious choice to be open. Not only does she make that choice, but she shows how it’s done.

It’s not a talent, but a conscious choice. Her willingness to capture these moments on film document how easy it is and, if you pay attention, you’ll find yourself opening up in reflection with her.

Even though she calls this Turn WITHIN, not OUT, I would call it Listen, Learn and Be Love.

Can you imagine turning the camera on yourself like this? Lol….

I guess the key reason why I’m attracted to Britney’s videos is that she gives me confidence in the words – “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them”. In everyday life, it isn’t often that you find that second person to help you open up to your inner Being. When you do, the interactions can be powerful and deep. There is a special energy that is exchanged between two people when the mind gets out of the way and the Being shines through. Well, as it turns out, Britney’s already come to the conversation. She’s transcended time by gathering virtually and being available whenever you need!

I hope you listened between her words and didn’t get caught up in the technicalities for if you open your heart and just listen, you’ll feel her through space and time. If you don’t get it the first time, watch another one until you find one that resonates with you. At that point, listen & learn how it makes you feel. Pay close attention to that feeling for that is where you learn how she’s doing it.

Once that connection is learned, all that’s really left is to do it too! I don’t mean record yourself giving a sermon via YouTube, but simply opening your heart. Make yourself venerable – but with strength. Do what you know deep down inside is what you want to do. Allow yourself to do it and then, well, simply do it.

So listen, learn and all the while love. It’s easy and fun! You don’t even have to go looking for anyone for Britney is already there and waiting.

Good day.

Raw Sunflower Red Hummus

This one tastes great and is just too easy to not share with the world. With just a little preparation, you can whip up some great tasting raw humus that will fill you up for lunch yet not make you feel like a nap is in order in just a few minutes. I like to call this my Sunflower Red Hummus.

The other day, I was pressed for time yet wanted this hummus. I’d already soaked the sunflower seeds and let them sprout overnight so they were ready. I looked at the clock and saw that I had fifteen minutes to prepare and cleanup before I had to run. Well, the total time was twenty minutes (including the quick cleanup) so I had to run really fast to make up that time!


  • 2 cups sprouted raw living sunflower seeds
  • 1 sweet red, yellow or orange bell pepper
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1 carrot (or a few small garden carrots that you just dug and cleaned up!)
  • ½ a Myers lemon
  • ½ clove raw garlic
  • 2 tablespoons raw cold pressed olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (or a little less)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cyan pepper!

All the wet ingredients go in first. And, well, you probably already know this from the picture below, but you’re going to blend this in a high powered blender until it’s creamy and smooth. So, if you put the wet ingredients o the bottom, they bill break down quickly and create volume that will carry down the rest. You might need to help some of the seeds and be careful not to get the seasoning on your plunger (if you need to use one).

This is a pretty heavy mixture so you’ve got to have a heavy-duty blender in order to keep it from bogging down. But it will. It will also heat up pretty quickly so watch out for that. I usually start out just fast enough to get the fruit (veggies) to spin and then turn the blender up as high as it will go and still turn the contents of the blender. If you flip the machine all the way to high, it all just lifts up and, well, you’re no longer ‘blending’ at that point. 🙂

The little cup on the left is exactly 1 cup. I like to fill it ¾ the way and it’s just the right amount for lunch. The bigger container just happened to work with my time constraints for the other little containers needed washing!

Once prepared, it easily lasts for a few days in the fridge. You’ll see the top darken (oxidize), but the rest should stay just made fresh.

This one is so easy that it’s hard to get wrong. My only real advice is to go light on the garlic. The picture shows a whole clove. I cut it in half before adding it. Too much raw garlic tends to overpower the other subtle flavors that really make this hummus shine.

It’s been a long winter and just a couple days ago I started to notice the spring air. It blew in and within about 24 hours all the plants that had been waiting to bloom sprung into early spring pinks, yellows and greens. We’re well past the equinox, so it feels a month late. Whether it’s early or late, it’s still warmly welcomed!
