My Salad Experience On Flight 795.

 

While flying to Austin recently, I had an uncomfortable feeling come over me.. Here, I share my experience. Prior to my flight, I had given myself ample time to prepare a simple and delicious organic salad with avocado and lemon juice. Once on the flight a woman seated next to me remarked on how good the salad looked. I felt a sense of self love pulse through my veins and replied that it was worth the extra effort. As I chewed and enjoyed each bite, I watched the flight attendant approach each passenger to take their snack and beverage orders. When he reached my seat I asked for a cup of hot water and ‘no’ on the snack. He offered a variety of chip a

saladnd cookie options. He later returned serving the passengers their orders. I received my cup of hot water and dunked my organic herbal tea bag to seep. I have flown on planes throughout my adult life and never quite had this mental occurrence. My ears heard an orchestra of soda cans opening and plastic rustling. I witnessed an entire plane full of people gorging on junk food! I know I have seen this before. It’s just that this time a sense of deep sadness came over me that I was alone in my making myself a priority. I contemplated whether the chips were part of a food addiction issue, or perhaps, a rare indulgence or the reason be that people were simply hungry or possibly they all just wanted free fake stuff the eat.

 

Each person has their story of their relationship with food. People of all ages and backgrounds embraced eating this processed crap. We talk about making America great and to be a better country but, is this really possible if we have poison and grease suffocating our cells?

A child accompanying her mother sitting in the seat next to me ate a doughnut before boarding the plane, and later consumed a small bag of chips on the plane. Her mom walked on board with a triple coffee and asked for another cup while on the plane. Her poor adrenal glands! Will she still have any left by the time she reaches age 60?

 

So, here on this plane I stopped my mental chatter to write it down and share the absurdity of life today in America. It is considered normal and completely acceptable to toxify ourselves on a regular basis with absolutely no consciousness. Although, I am not perfect in what I eat, I will say that most saladof the time I am doing it healthy and raw vegan. We see more and more suffering in the world. More mental illness, more disease and pain, more medication, more addiction, and a general disconnect to ourselves. When we live unconsciously and we disconnect, we are creating a space for fear, negativity, and harm to ourselves, to others and this affects the world. Our everyday choices make a huge difference to change what we see as ‘normal’ to make for a better world and a good life for all.

 

Want more energy? More clarity of thought? To be conscious rather than numb, stimulated, down? Eat raw food. Eat clean food. Eat primarily plants. Exercise. Want to stop drinking coffee? Drink green juice. When you change your food your craving will change and so will you. Want a better you? Love yourself. Make every choice an act of love. How? Listen to your inner guidance. Your Inner GPS. What is the true voice verses the fake voice? Act compassionately, embrace pleasure, be generous, take time for your self-care, meditate, and surround yourself with supportive positive people. Turn to happy, healthy, pleasurable acts not stuffing it with processed fake stuff. Play like a child, dance, celebrate with eating the grapes and not the wine. It is all a choice we make. Every action has a vibration. A force. Make it an act of good will. Before ya know it I might look over and see everyone eating salads with happy faces on the airplane!

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Interested in attending my classes but it never seems to work out?

 How about we make the date the right time for you? I love inspiring others to live a healthy life! I have been teaching classes on wellness and detoxification since 1995 and it is my privilege and joy to share information with you. I thought it an interesting idea to offer you the opportunity to plan a class or a series of classes that can occur at Gravity East Village or at a location near the Manhattan area that works for both of us.

Think about this for a moment. Have you ever thought it a grand idea to bring me into your office and you gather a group of your co-workers for a class on Juice Fasting? How about we meet at my office and you bring your group of family / friends for a night of learning about ways to give up coffee, sugar, and processed foods? Perhaps, your concerned about your loved ones that are powerless over food addiction and nothing would make you more happy then for me to talk to them about ways to have more energy, to eat more veggies, to start juicing and to cut back on animal protein? Sounds good to me!
Get them together and let’s plan a date!
I require a minimum of 6 persons to plan a class at an affordable rate that will include all hand-out information. My classes run from 2 – 3 hours long.
Contact me by email donna@gravityeastvillage.com if interested and we can discuss the details. I am generally available on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday evenings. Sunday and weekday hours can be arranged to plan a class.
I am available to meet with you for a private consultation reviewing any of these topics. I meet with clients for Nutritional Consultations at Gravity East Village and can meet over skype or facetime.
I appreciate you checking out my message!
Best,

This informational lecture prepares you to do a cleanse on your own.
Just about everyone has gallstones. They are formed in the liver and are found also in the gallbladder and the connecting ducts. When doing a gallbladder/liver flush you can pass hundreds of green and beige colored gallstones. Gallstones are primarily made of cholesterol as the main ingredient (95%), bile, and calcium salts. They are congealed clumps of bile that are invisible to any x-ray or ultra sound technology. An ultra-sound will detect a fatty liver when the cholesterol based stones are blocking the liver and ducts and will show a completely white picture instead of black. A fatty liver can accumulate 20,000 stones before it succumbs to suffocation and ceases to function.
Gallstones are a contributing factor to most diseases. Any obstruction in the body will cause stress and toxicity and will be a major reason why people become ill and have difficulty
recovering from disease.
By doing a gallbladder flush you will take steps to restore your liver. You will improve your health, vitality, energy, and youthfulness. A cleaner liver brings a new lease on life. By decongesting the liver and gallbladder the body’s 60-100 trillion cells will breathe more oxygen, receive sufficient amounts of nutrients, eliminate metabolic waste products, and maintain perfect communication links with nervous system, endocrine system,
and every part of the body.
There are two methods of doing a gallbladder flush that we will discuss. You will decide which method best suits you. There is a 4 Day or 6 Day ‘Preparation’ to choose from.

“This irresistible feeling comes over you and holds on tight and won’t let go!”
“What is it? “
“It’s a Craving!”
The most common reason why people have difficulty with going ‘raw’ or just
plain sticking with a healthy diet is those nasty food cravings..

 

In this workshop we will discuss:

-the reasons for cooked food dependency
-tips on how to increase the amount of raw food in your diet
-the ingredients needed to cope in those challenging moments
-an understanding of what is needed to succeed


This discussion will include an understanding of the  physical, psychological and spiritual aspects to better health.

Much of the background material used for this workshop comes from my own experience, my many years working with people in the health community, my knowledge and experience as a Colon Hydro-therapist and from the book ’12 Steps to Raw Foods,’ by Victoria Boutenko.
