I think I was recently discussing in my raw foods yahoo group how much I have been LOVING laughing lately. Laughing has helped me to really stay happy and find joy and peace so MUCH easier. Here is a GREAT article I found on the health benefits of laughter. There is TONS of info in the internet, if you want to research it more.

Ricky Gervais is one of the FUNNIEST and most ENTERTAINING people I have EVER seen. I must say that I LOVE British humor so….if you are not into it, then you may not think this is funny. Chris first told me about him when he bought the British version of the show “The Office.” This series is truly one of the most HYSTERICAL things I have EVER seen. I couldn’t remember the last time I had laughed so hard!! Then Chris and I one night started delving through the You Tube videos and found this one. I have been wanting to post it for some time but….I am a bit slow and it took me FOREVER to figure out how to post it on your blog. I think I finally figured it out and now I can share the joy of laughter with all of you. I just want to forewarn that there is a bit of swearing in this and in the series, so if you find that offensive you may not want to watch this! For those who do watch it, I hope your day has been uplifted and you feel refreshed and rejuvenated!!

There is a FUN little website put together by a woman named Karen Bishop. I signed up to receive her latest energy alerts. I really enjoy them!! One day I was reading one to Chris and, of course, he was making fun of me and my “out there” ideas. Well, it was SO funny because the further I read, the more it hit home in his life and pertained to what he was going through. I was laughing so hard by the end. I can’t even tell you how many times that has happened with all my VOODOO stuff. Life is such a great learning ground, isn’t it?

Well….anyway I was reading today’s and I thought I would post some of what she says. She is talking about the current fire issues in California and how that is affecting all of us in one way or another. You can read the whole article HERE! I am just posting a small piece of what she says. I know it can be a bit “out there” and though I feel she speaks lots of truth, I am grateful for the articles because I take what I might need from them and leave the rest!!

“Some might say that we are being attacked by the darkness, as it does not want the light to take over and shine so brilliantly. But this is only a lower level interpretation stemming from the minds we operated from which resided in a lower vibrating reality. We no longer live in those states of dis-connect from our higher level selves. And in this way, the polarity and blaming things of the outside can no longer exist. Thus, it becomes more evident than ever, that we are simply purging and releasing all the darkness within us. And as the true lightworkers that we are, we transmute these darker and denser energies through ourselves.

So in this way, all we can seemingly see is darkness, darkness everywhere. This is because it is up and out, leaving, and it can hide no more. I have not seen or experienced or felt this much of the darker energies all at once for several years. This state we currently find ourselves in is a very common phase of the ascension process, and very normal indeed. It simply means that we are, as always, right on track as we climb the ascension ladder, and are moving some big chunks of darkness, assisting them on their way to a new and better matching residency.”

What else? I am currently reading a book called “The Jackrabbit Factor.” It has been interesting but I am still trying to decide what I really think of it. This week, because of an immense gift from some person who I feel so GRATEFUL for, I am attending an “Art of Womanhood” Conference. I wasn’t going to be able to attend and I thought I would want to go. We couldn’t afford it!! A very good friend of mine emailed to tell me they had a full paid scholarship available and I might be able to get it. I called the woman in charge immediately and I GOT IT!! So….if for some strange reason, the person who donated the money for me to go is reading this, I CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH!! My heart is so FULL of LOVE for your gift!! I will be “paying it forward” at some later date, I am sure!

Anywho, I am reading the book with the intent to discuss it at the conference. I think I was meant to find it to help Chris more than me. Chris NEVER reads and I recommended that he read it so….he started it yesterday and is already half way done. It is a pretty easy read but it teaches the basic idea that thoughts are things! I have decided that if this is a new concept to you then this is an EXCELLENT book to teach the idea! So…I would recommend to those people who just recently saw the movie “The Secret” or are just beginning on the path of our creative power! I will keep you posted on my final consensus of it when I finish.

Now the diet. Um….yesterday I ate:

October 28th:

1-2 quarts of water

1 cup OJ with green powder and herbs

lots of grapes

2 quarts of green drink

more grapes

Large salad with our homemade pizzas DELICIOUS!!

So….I used to teach about our homemade pizzas at my transition classes. David came over for dinner last night and had been requesting raw food. Well, since I have to cook for my family, it is hard to want to make more than one meal. Instead I remembered this dish that is basically “almost raw”, if there is such a thing. LOL!! It’s a lot of FUN, TASTY, and VERY healthy!! Here is how you make it. I think EVERYONE should try it and eat it!! We all LOVE them.

First, preheat your oven to about 375 degrees. Then, you take the Ezekial Sprouted Wheat Tortillas. You can make your own raw pizza sauce which is what I used to do (I think I have a recipe for it in my Rachel Raw Recipes book), or at Good Earth they sell the BEST pasta/pizza sauce EVER. It is in a blue can with on the pasta isle. So….spread that on your wheat tortilla. Then you cover the sauce with any fruit or veggies you want on your pizza. Last night we had pineapple, olives, onions, tomatoes, red bell peppers, marinated artichoke hearts, raw cheese, mushrooms! That is all I can remember anyway. But….just like any pizza you can put anything you want on it. Then….you take and VERY CAREFULLY put it directly onto the rack in the oven. It only needs to stay in for about 5 minutes, maybe even less. When it is done, take it out, cut in pieces and ENJOY!! This is SO YUMMY, I promise.

That is all for today. God bless you all!!

Abundant peace,
