Let’s start the day off with some beautiful K-containing #plantPOWER meals!
Julia (@juliacoakley) made a beautiful spread of veggies with the superstar of all veggies: kale! (Okay, I’m biased but it’s still true)
“Last night’s #dinner Portobellos and kale sautéed with garlic in evoo. And asparagus sautéed in evoo with lemon juice with garlic.”
“K is for #kale and #kidneybeans, both of which are well represented in my giant#plantPOWER salad tonight!”
Way to give LOVE to your bodies, ladies! Can you believe we’re already halfway through the challenge?! We are all totally kicking butt.
You didn’t honestly expect me to have “L” day go by without mentioning the word love, did you?
That was my art project this morning.
I am love. You are love. The love I see in you is a reflection of the love inside of me.
What does this mean?
The amazing Wayne Dyer says, “We must be like what we came from.” It means that we all come from the same Divine source of love. We all came from love, so we are all love. That is our destiny. Our destiny is to LIVE with this Divine love inside of us at all times. When we recognize that the love inside of you is the exact same love that lives inside of me, we know true love and we know “oneness,” which is the fact that we are all equal and no one is better than anyone else. That is what we mean when we say, “Only love is real.”
In his book Wishes Fulfilled, Wayne makes a really incredible point. He says that, for the nine months we were in our mother’s womb, all we knew was love. For nine months, we trusted our mothers to give us everything we needed to enter this world. We choose to forget this truth when we enter this world and are exposed to fear – because we are not taught to believe love over fear. Keep in mind that your fearful thoughts are just that: thoughts. Just because we have a thought does not mean we have to believe it.
We have our voice of intuition to lead us, that soft and honest whisper inside of us that always leads us back home to love. Remember that the ego (our fear voice) has to speak loudly in order to seem real. Your voice of intuition will always be that soft, honest whisper. That is why being a witness to our thoughts is so important…so we can find that soft whisper encouraging us to love ourselves and follow it. That is the one of the best gifts you can give yourself.
Speaking of gifts, I’ve got another awesome one that you can give to yourself. How about some love pudding?
