Rewiring the Brain

Here's to a good Friday on this lovely Good Friday.  I believe we can stay on our healthy life plan and celebrate the holiday with our friends and family.  Holidays can be one of the triggers to keep us stuck in our old way of thinking and being.

It takes time...and willpower and undo programmed thinking.  I heard Joe Dispenza speak at a conference last year where he taught on neuroscience and about how you can rewire your brain. You literally have to rewire your brain to create different results in your life.  I read his book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, which tells you how to eliminate bad habits by reprogramming your thinking.  Once the brain is rewired, you develop a whole new set of references and the triggers that jerk your chain come undone.  Some habits take a long time to undo, but cooked foods may be the hardest.  There are triggers of smell and culture that have a very strong pull.  Most of us were fed cooked food from birth.  But the good news is that the more you use your intelligence and will power to eat a proper diet, the more the old program will become irrelevant until it no longer exists.

Lessons from The Quintessence of Living.
Simple Raw and Natural refers to your way of living as a philosophy.  We are not trying to sound intellectual, because we are not talking about philosophical theories that are taught at university.  We are talking about a philosophy of living that is needed to help you get along in the world and to make your life have value.

A philosophy of living is not mysterious or something remote from your everyday life.  Everyone must have a reason for living...a philosophy of living...if they want to live the best possible life.  Your philosophy helps you set your boundaries and plan how you are to navigate through life.  Without it, you will tossed to and fro with every competing idea that presents itself. 

A philosophy of living is a set of principles which will help you journey through life.  The results you get will be determined by what those principles are and how you apply them.  Natural Hygiene has established and proven principles of living that are worthy of your consideration. They can help you make your life more worthwhile while addressing the question of the cause of your diseases and the recovery from those diseases.

Food Prep for the Day:
I made chia crackers for the dehydrator.

Chia Crackers
2 cups chia seeds
9 cups water
Rosemary to taste
1 lemon, juiced
Chopped chives
Put all together into a mixing bowl.  Stir or whisk together and then let sit for ten minutes or more until the chia seeds absorb much of the water. 
Pour onto Teflex sheets and dehydrate at 110 degrees for at least two hours.  
Flip the crackers onto a tray without a Teflex sheet and dehydrate a few more hours until crispy.
I dehydrated mine overnight.
