Every day I realize we are all a miracle and amazing!
“I give thanks to my body for all that it does to support me living a healthy, wonderful life. I bow to my body, my mind and spirit within and give thanks to the earth mother that gives us life, holds us and cares for us.”
Yours in bliss and appreciation,

This month everything is becoming green and alive, so I invite you to try this simple and refreshing green drink. Have fun improving your health by bringing more greens into your diet… enjoy!
2 cups water
A few handfuls of chopped greens like kale or spinach
Lemon juice from half a lemon
A small thumb tip sized chunk of fresh ginger, peeled
A few pitted dates for sweetness
½ cup coconut almond milk or any plant milk
I make this in a regular blender and start by adding the liquids, then the rest of the ingredients and blending until smooth – usually 4 minutes.
For local readers, Living Soils Farm in Cedar is open on Sundays and starting in May, local farmer’s markets will be open. Let’s support local and organic small businesses and farms. I so appreciate having access to these services.
Island Natural Market in Nanaimo is also one of my favorite places to shop for organic groceries; they have such a variety, their staff is friendly and knowledgeable, prices are competitive and they offer educational seminars at their store. I feel so lucky to have all of this in Nanaimo.
Living in your bliss is a healthy body – so fuel your body with the best!
Yours in bliss,
Letting go with ease this month, I invite you to continue your cleansing and clearing. This meditation is a wonderful way to start the day. By taking deep breaths and bringing consciousness to each breath, you’re nourishing your body – physically and spiritually.
To start, close your eyes and imagine yourself breathing in new life force energy with each breath.
Invite each breath you take in to be nourishment to your being, now with each exhale, visualize a gentle release, let go of whatever weighs on your mind and heart.
As you’re inhaling and exhaling slowly, imagine the spring rains with their cleansing and clearing energy gently moving over your whole body. As it washes over you, it helps you let go. Feel at ease and let yourself go with the flow of the gentle spring rains.
With each inhale, you’re breathing in new life force energy to feed and nourish your every cell and with each exhale, you’re naturally releasing and letting go of the old and the complete.
With love and gratitude in your heart, appreciate the simplicity of the breath of life available to you at every moment – ready to assist you in nourishing your whole being. Feel awe and appreciation for this life and this body that is here now experiencing life. Feel gratitude for the preciousness of our breath and life itself.
When you’re ready, slowly release the visualization and open your eyes.
