Gargle With Hydrogen Peroxide

#antiviral #antibacterial #hydrogenperoxide #water #mouthwash #remedy Here is a good remedy to curb and reduce infections. Keep a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide in your bath room, so you have it on hand. My sister, a dentist, who blogs at, recommended the mouth wash of hydrogen peroxide and water in her newsletter, pointing outContinue reading “Gargle With Hydrogen Peroxide”

“How Have Your Views Changed Since Covid19?”

There has been a minimal change in my views on life as such, but a big change in my perception of leadership. There are actually very few leaders, and most of them are not in leadership positions. Those who sit in leadership positions tell themselves that they are handling “the situation” in a great way,Continue reading ““How Have Your Views Changed Since Covid19?””

Contagious Gardening

On Sunday, I visited my old garden, the one I grew from scratch on poor soil and against all warnings by neighbours who thought that I was “doing that son of a bitch of a landlord a favour that he did not deserve” – let’s say, I had more reactions of incomprehension than curiosity orContinue reading “Contagious Gardening”

Thanks On a Friday in March 2020

Thanks to the water that is hydrating and refreshing our bodies and the bodies of all animals that share our watershed. Thanks to the soil for all our sustenance and for providing natural entertainment to growers, gardeners, walkers, hikers and a playground for children and animal children. Thanks to the sky for the air that weContinue reading “Thanks On a Friday in March 2020”

Plant-Based In Spring 2020

Keep your immune system strong with nutrient rich plant based food and ancestral foods. Although only few of our ancestors would have identified as vegans (lucky, if you can claim that), consider that their diet may have been 60% vegan and about 90% vegetarian. (Meat was highly prized, because it was rare and consumed atContinue reading “Plant-Based In Spring 2020”

Essential Workers During the Quarantine 2020

#essentialworkers #covid19 I have watched a number of essential workers holding back and fighting with their tears when I told them “Thank you for everything you are doing for us in this time.” I notice more women work in essential jobs than men. About 60% or so. Whatever the gender, it is a small thingContinue reading “Essential Workers During the Quarantine 2020”

Quarantine 2020

#socialdistancing #spring2020#qualitytime #withfamily #withself This unusual “off time” is an opportunity – to become comfortable with all your emotions and befriend yourself even more than you thought was possible– to teach your child, your children, your spouse, anyone who makes demands on your time emotional intelligence – by example, by example, of course– to makeContinue reading “Quarantine 2020”

Integral, Integration, Integrity

– Summer 2020 Is Still About the Heart – I mentioned before that this spring (the covid19 situation) has revealed the hearts of people. This summer will reveal even more about the heart. It is your choice whether you want to recognize or ignore, accept or resist what you are discovering. #2020revelations #integration #anahata

Togetherness While Sheltering-In-Place

As the covid19 measures are easing up in many countries, and life is (slowly) returning to what it was before, I hope that those who and that what you love is more in the centre of your everyday life – not just in the invisible realm of your thoughts and feelings, but in the wayContinue reading “Togetherness While Sheltering-In-Place”

Heroes – Before and While Sheltering In Place

Our next Friday circle will be a tribute to “Just for today, I will honour my elders and teachers” (reiki rule). My posts follow that principle quite regularly, because I honour a spiritual or creative ancestor on his/her birthday, in some cases, a sibling, and in rare cases, a spiritual descendant – because I seeContinue reading “Heroes – Before and While Sheltering In Place”

Lie After Lie – Discernment

By the way.. It is totally okay to ignore the media for long stretches of time… Just like everything fear-based and fear stimulating, and other (individual) pathological liars… Though we can hand it to the media: no one can cause this much fear, circulate that many lies, speak to learned helplessness and emotional triggers asContinue reading “Lie After Lie – Discernment”

Boost Your Immunity and Your Serenity

Other low cost immunity and serenity boosters that are good to keep in your kitchen (and add to your soups, smoothies, dishes) – turmeric powder: amazing anti-inflammatory spice that gets stronger in combination with red, chilli, or black pepper – magnesium: when you are stressed, easily stressed, or don’t have enough rest or sleep. ItContinue reading “Boost Your Immunity and Your Serenity”

In the Real World, During the Pandemic

I never noticed before that birds could sing so loud as this season. Maybe this spring is the opportunity to turn attention away from what we usually let into our minds and witness what mother earth is saying to us. In other words, there is a pointer to be more with the real world, toContinue reading “In the Real World, During the Pandemic”

Prepared for Emergencies

#Gaia #resourcefulness #allinthesameboat #notthefirstnotthelastcrisis #emergencypreparedness I prefer to be prepared – for any disaster – if I can be… Not everything is in our power to control, but how you face shocking news is almost always in your control. You know very well – if you read even 10% of messages I posted since 2011,Continue reading “Prepared for Emergencies”

Hear Your Heart, In This Pause

#covid19 #shelteringinplace #beathome #hearyourheart My stress levels have been lowered significantly since I work from home and go out only for specific tasks. I am very grateful for that. I shop less, carry lighter bags home, feel free to ignore boring stuff, and notice the good, albeit in unusual places, and am quite fascinated byContinue reading “Hear Your Heart, In This Pause”

The Offering of Covid 19

These suggestions by Dr. Jonice Webb are uplifting. I have more for you: – Slow down your breathing at least three times a day.– “Dream up” and visualize your ideal income situation and service. Recall the people who don’t need an escape and who are grateful and thrilled to do their work. How could youContinue reading “The Offering of Covid 19”

Neighbourly Thanks – While Social Distancing

Be safe. Be well. Send your gratitude to the nurses, doctors, hospital staff for their courage and service to life. Be grateful for everyone helping in this crisis, everyone providing you with necessities, everyone kind and sane, everyone who choses prosocial, neighbourly behaviour. Find the good in self-isolation. This too shall pass.  NJ, 17 MarchContinue reading “Neighbourly Thanks – While Social Distancing”

Refine, Appreciate, Co-Create

#newmoon #April #newmooninTaurus #selfnurturing #renewalfromwithin Last night’s moon infused the air with a high-quality and genuine energy. A reminder that it is alright to beautify the spaces you spend time in, regardless of what everyone else is doing, how much it may be overlooked or appreciated, and whether the timing is right – because youContinue reading “Refine, Appreciate, Co-Create”

State of Emergency

#selfisolation #stateofemergency #March2020 #coronavirus #intheneighbourhood I am grateful to the kind neighbours who make themselves available to those who have difficulty obtaining medicine and provisions. It is so healing to observe the humane and loving attitudes in the neighbourhood. I already took care of this household, days before the state of emergency was declared. IContinue reading “State of Emergency”
