If You Get Upset Try Saying Yes!

0

An Excerpt from Practical Enlightenment People often erroneously think that once they wakeup, transform, have an enlightening event or series of events that they will never get upset again. There is also a misconception that years of looking at your life buys you something and that you should have permanent relief from getting disturbed. Getting upset is not a failing, but to the mind that wishes to “get somewhere,” the mind that wishes to achieve enlightenment, it is. Have you ever said to yourself: I thought I was over that already I don’t like being upset I hate this I…

My Journey to Health & Well Being

I’m Dr. Robert Morrison. I’m the official chiropractor for the Broadway show Hamilton and I am going to be writing an article each month related to health and well being. My hope is to provide you with useful information that will improve your life. In this essay, I’d like to tell you a bit about myself and my own personal journey. I never had any desire to be a doctor. I was a history major in college, gearing up for law school when I had a change of heart. It came after meeting with several lawyers in order to get…

3 Steps to Fuel Your Body for Optimal Health

I’m known as The Reinvention Warrior as I’ve reinvented my life more times than I can count. I’ve recreated myself in health, career, relationships and spiritual life, yet, I’ve learned that in order to reinvent any area of your life– it’s best to start with your nutrition. It’s extremely important to fuel your body (and thus your transformation) with the right food for you. As a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Life Reinvention Expert, I fight for my clients to create their best life. I believe that in this day and age, if you don’t reinvent yourself you may…

Vegan Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes

‘Tis the season for lights and song and all the little indulgences and confectionary delicacies that conspire to transform these tenebrous days of winter into a celebration. These vegan cupcakes are a festive, and kind, addition to any holiday spread. I wanted to create something really special for my fellow teachers at school this year for the holidays, and to launch a 7-day New Year’s Vegan Challenge. With my own brand of creative activism, which I call Truth and a Cupcake, I’m spreading the messages of compassion and kindness that veganism offers. The delicious cupcakes themselves are sweet ambassadors for…

Blessings of the Returning Light

0

The days and hours leading up to the Winter Solstice are the darkest of the year. True, the days following the solstice are just as dark, but the energy is different. After the solstice, the dark gets a tiny bit lighter each day as the world as we know it on the Northern Hemisphere turns toward spring. But now, pre-solstice, we are spinning further and further into the dark. And it’s damn dark out there. The days have shriveled to a skeleton flicker of light. The frozen nights are endless. These are dim, drab times. No flowers, no foliage. No…

Perception is a Tricky Thing!

1

 There is a comic strip by Leigh Rubin where two cows are observing a monk chanting “OOOOOM”. One of them whispered to the other, “Dude’s got it all backwards!” So, who is right? The Moo-ing cows or the Oom-ing monk? Have you ever wondered how almost all the quotes or sayings by great men are perceived differently by different people? Let’s take an example; a quote by Zephyr- “Freedom requires that you discover your own inner language-your own life rules-your own vision.” How can one thing depict both the opposite ends? Well, this is how perception works. You and I…

You Can Become a Creative Genius

0

Our famous artists, writers, scientists, and entrepreneurs are often seen as rare and special beings endowed with gifts and talents that most of us lack. While investigating the subject of creative inspiration, I discovered that many of our most celebrated creative thinkers—the people we call geniuses or visionaries—credit their greatest achievements to their contact with the soul. Many spoke of the soul as a portal to a universal source of inspiration and beauty. Once connected to this source, ideas and images simply flowed into their brains. We see the fruits of this experience all around us, from our most beautiful…

10 Rituals for Holiday Healing

0

The holidays are a time for fun, family, food… and nostalgia. These few months of the year can easily reopen old emotional and mental wounds: we remember celebrations shared with loved ones who are no longer with us. We dream about seasons when we felt happier than we feel now. We wish we could relive former festivities under better circumstances—financial, health, or otherwise. Ironically, the season that’s supposed to be the most joyful is anything but for some of us. The holidays disrupt our daily routines, making us feel more uncomfortable and empathetic than usual. In truth, we need healing…

Immune Protective Food and Herbs

0

In talking about your “immune” system, we are really talking about the entire body and mind because everything is a relevant part of how you stay healthy or get sick and then recover – or not. Herbs can be applied like drugs, but that’s not how I like to use them, nor how they work best. It’s important to identify which body system(s) is not working optimally, then feed and strengthen it. perhaps you keep coming down with lung or bronchial infections and need to strengthen your respiratory system, or perhaps you are susceptible to bladder or even more serious…
