We need more Peter Tatchell's in the World, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

One of the very few living folk that one has admired from afar for mamy years has finally been acknowledged and honored recently in the form of a blue plaque(Normally bestowed to people that have passed away first)outside his London home. Peter has fought and campaigned tirelessly for human rights and justice for decades and this simple gesture given by the people makes me incredibly-proud of him and others that selflessly give their time to promote peace and harmony throughout the world. We need more Peter Tatchells in the world! I'm very happy for him and a great day for unity and justice. Other folks I greatly admire include the Liberty campaigner and founder. Joanna Lumley for putting her TV actress fame to good use to highlight the Gurka's campaign for justice in their noble efforts in the world war.

Age-defining Arms?!

Here, personal trainer David Marshall gives his top three exercises for banishing those unwanted bingo wings. There’s no need even to go to the gym — you can do them in your home.

Half press-ups: These are like normal press-ups, but are done on your knees to make them easier.
Bicep curls using dumb-bells: Sit with a weight in each hand and, with your arms hanging straight down and your upper arms fixed by your sides, you curl the weights up towards your shoulders

Tricep chair dips: Sit on a chair and grasp the edges. Push yourself up and forwards. Then, with your knees bent at 90 degrees and your feet flat on the floor, lower your bottom towards the ground by bending your elbows, and then use your arms to push yourself back up

For each exercise, aim to do one set of between 25 and 30 repetitions to the point of muscular exhaustion. For the dumb-bell exercises, if you can’t do 25 repetitions with even a light weight, build up gradually. Whatever you can do today, do at least one more tomorrow.

Wonderous Coconut!

Foods that have an incredible array of health benefits that go well beyond just their nutrient value are considered 'super-foods.' Mothers' milk is considered the most perfect food on the planet for human consumption do to its ideal nutritional content and immune boosting compounds. The closest match in nature to mothers' milk is found within the coconut. This tropical staple is loaded with many powerful fatty acids that give it a unique taste and an abundance of health enhancing benefits.

Coconut oil is rich in healthy small to medium chained saturated fats called medium chain triglycerides or MCTs. Most common vegetable or seed oils consist of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs), also known as long-chain triglycerides or LCTs. The LCTs put more strain on the pancreas, liver, and GI tract. The body must package these LCTs with carrier proteins that require special enzymes to effectively metabolize.

These MCTs are smaller and permeate cell membranes easily without the need for carrier proteins and special enzymes. MCTs are sent directly to the liver where they are immediately converted into usable energy rather than being stored as fat. In fact, MCTs do not depend on bile or pancreatic enzymes to be effectively metabolized. This makes coconut oil fully digestible by those who have had their gallbladder removed.

Coconut oil is the most stable of all the commonly used fatty acid sources due to its high composition of saturated fats. This stability is very important because it reduces the free radical load on our bodies. Physiologist and biochemist Ray Peat, Ph.D. considers coconut oil to be an antioxidant due to its resistance to oxidation and free radical formation.

Coconut oil helps to balance hormones, stabilize blood sugar levels and boost the cellular healing process. It is also known to stimulate the thyroid and reduce stress on the liver and pancreas. This increases metabolism and helps us burn fat more effectively. Additionally, coconut oil increases our energy levels due to its very clean and easy digestive process.

Both mothers' milk and coconut oil are rich in the immune boosting lauric acid which is converted in our body to monolaurin. Monolaurin contains extraordinarily powerful anti-biotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. Unlike man-made anti-biotics and anti-virals these fatty acids pose no danger within our bodies. They are completely harmless to us, yet powerful at destroying harmful microbes by damaging the cell membrane of these competing organisms. This makes coconut oil one of the best foods to eat during cold/flu season.

These MCTs are also known for their ability to speed the healing process of cuts and bruises by destroying dangerous microbes and enhancing cellular metabolism and tissue repair. It is also very soothing and great at reducing stress when it is applied onto face, temples, and scalp.

Coconut oil is fantastic for keeping the skin and connective tissue strong and supple. It helps protect skin from the aging effects of free radicals and naturally reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is also one of best nutritional moisturizers for our hair and scalp. Applying coconut oil has been known to enhance texture and highlights in hair while eliminating dandruff and dry skin.

Using Coconut Oil: (Always get Extra-virgin coconut oil)
1.Rub into hair and onto skin as a moisturiser after shower.
2.Use as a natural deodorant by applying to underarms.
3.Use coconut oil when you cook due to its incredible stability
4.Take 1-4 tsp of extra-virgin coconut oil in raw form daily
5.Use coconut milk for shakes, smoothies, and creamy recipes
6.Snack on coconut

Bean and lentil chili with raw baby spinach leaves(love spinach:)!

You didn't win....

I've been looking for a special journal for quite some time(that was preferably not made in the PRC). A journal that one can map out their dreams, goals etc. , write inspiring quotations, affirmations, draw paint etc. In short a journal I could lovingly be a loyal friend and most-treasured asset. It had to be pretty, made with love and a journal that I can really appreciate and keep forever. I decided to do a Ebay search and to my delight this lovingly-handcrafted 'very special' journal came up 'Nkuku recycled sari journal with box(never used)' for a starting bid princely sum of 0.99p + 2.90 1st class Recorded delivery. I was the first and only bidder for the first 8 days or so(Dreamt it was mine:0). The final day I was outbid yet determined to seal the deal in the last few minutes. To my dissapointment a bidder stole my journal from me in the last minute. I was so upset with tears as seeing this journal gave me hope for the future and now it was out of my grasp. I was in turmoil. I'm at a stage where I'm on the scrapheap as far as contractual employments concerned and(I've lost count of the number of resemes and covering letters I've sent off without as much as an acknowledgment)is a sheer challenge to get through when you on the breadline and not properly nourished.

Coconut water is low in fat and calories, has no cholesterol, and has a natural balance of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium- making it a healthy electrolyte drink. It has even been used intravenously to stabilize electrolytes.
Many people know of the healing benefits of coconut oil. Coconut water now joins the pantry’s medicine cabinet. Coconuts are anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. The lauric acid in coconuts is also used to heal digestive tract disorders such as Leaky Gut Syndrome.
According to ayurvedic belief, coconut is carminative: meaning that it helps to prevent intestinal gas, aids in removing toxins and increases the digestive tract’s ability to absorb nutrients. Coconut balances acid levels and flushes toxins out. Ayurveda considers coconut a natural stress-buster.
The calming, cooling benefits of coconut water relieves burning sensations and hot flashes and “restores emotional stability in menopausal women”. This property of coconut water also makes it an excellent choice for liver problems, hepatitis or inflammation.
Since it regulates the functioning of the intestine, the coconut water propitiates to the user a smoother and pretty skin.
Beyond ingested, the coconut water can also be used directly on the face, for skin hydration.

We will be seen on this stage of life again and again, until we become such good actors that we can play our parts perfectly, according to the Divine Will. Then the Stage Manager will say: “You need ‘go no more out.’ (Rev. 3:12). You have done My Will. You have played your part, and acted well. You did not lose courage. Now you have come back to Me, to be a pillar of immortality in the temple of My Eternal Existence.”

Ended my day with some lovely MH, Tibetans and blissful asana practice followed by a yummy bowl of home-made mung bean sprouts!

Raw Chocolate Bliss!

Enjoyed and appreciated a substantial bowl of raw oat groats, prunes, cardamon, raw cacao powder and almond milk. Packed-full of antioxidants and brain-inducing neurotransmitters(as well as Mg for a healthy nervous system and skin-boosting sulphur:)that really boost your mood and well being. I've observed prior to commencing asanas raw cacao gives yoginis a flexible edge that only enhances our daily practice to deeper level. What more could you ask for? For a good online deal go to Cacao pwd from £9.97 for 500g:0). If you think the cook and processed dark raw chocolate is good you just wait to you try this, your healthy palate is in for a healthy treat! It's so versatile too. Great in your power smoothies to the morning to the most decadent celebration cake / treat / dessert.

Raw cacao, also known as raw chocolate or cocoa, is an increasingly popular healthy alternative to regular chocolate. It is an appetite suppressant so it can help in losing weight. It makes you feel good too since it’s a natural anti-depressant. Raw chocolate is also great in raw puddings and makes a satisfying snack.

It's down to the perfection of extraction of this most antioxidant-rich, most PURE and ridiculously great-tasting 100% Raw Cacao Powder...

This super delicious Cacao Powder, produced to ecological standards (totally free from agro chemicals) is created by freshly cold-pressing Cacao Beans into a cake which then separates the oil from the protein and fibre. The temperature is never allowed to exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit and is usually 104 degrees F (all other cocoa powders are exposed to temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit!), with a high-accuracy thermometer monitoring the process. Slowly, the pure, liquid cacao butter begins to sift off down a stainless steel valve and the remaining dry 'cake-like' material is then cold-ground, fine-milled and sifted so that only the finest, most bio-available raw cacao particles filter through into the finished product. This allows for maximum digestion and antioxidant absorption!

ORAC and more…

Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity is a rating scale the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) has developed: a high-tech way of measuring the ability of antioxidants to absorb cell damaging, wrinkle causing, tissue destructive free radicals.

It has been revealed that 25,200 ORAC units of Antioxidant power can be found in a single spoonful of Raw Chocolate Powder! This is approximately 955 ORAC units per gram.

This is much higher than most foods. In fact, it has been claimed that Raw Chocolate Powder has about 723% more (or about 7 times more) antioxidants gram-per-gram than typical dark chocolate, which is supposedly the bench mark for ‘healthy’ chocolate in ‘cooked’ terms, and isn’t even nutritionally usable and beneficial in the long term to humans. While everyone else is singing the praise of dark chocolate - Raw Chocolate is way beyond that.

In Raw Chocolate Powder, much of the oil is removed, while nearly all of the active nutrients remain. For example...

The amino acid Tryptophan is found naturally in cacao, which enhances relaxation and promotes better sleep.

Researchers have discovered that phenylethylamine (PEA) has a positive effect in enhancing feelings of love and Chocolate has been proven to be an excellent source of PEA.

Raw Chocolate is the richest food source of magnesium of any common food. Magnesium is the number one mineral that assists and supports healthy heart functioning.

Raw Chocolate Powder has a high level of Arginine, the aphrodisiac-like amino acid believed by body builders to build muscle and aid in recovery.


Add cacao powder to all your favourite smoothies, desserts, protein drinks, nut milks or anything else you can think of. Just one or two spoonfuls can transform any recipe into a healthy chocolate treat. It even goes great on top of fresh fruit!

Have you noticed the transformation of the lovely Kelly Osborne recently? I think she has blossomed into a very beautiful young woman(go Kelly:)! She now has the tiniest of waists and her legs arnt bad either.

It cost £132.00 via Amazon so out of one's budget for a wee while. This wee beauty would make a significant impact on mu life for sure.

September 11th Effort

September 11th Effort

All the experiences I have told you about are scientifically attainable. If you follow the spiritual laws, the result is certain. If the result doesn’t come, find fault with your effort. Intensity in all your religious practices is the only way. Those who don’t meditate regularly and deeply are restless whenever they do meditate, and give up after a short effort. But if you make a greater effort day by day, the ability to go deep will come. I don’t have to make any effort now; the whole world is gone instantly when I close my eyes and gaze into the Kutastha Center [the spiritual eye, in the forehead between the eyebrows].
—Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda, “Man’s Eternal Quest”

My thoughts are with the people that tragically lost their lives and with their loved ones 9 years ago today in New York.

Wish List!

By the end of the month it would be one year of commencing asanas and Tibetan Rites(Even if I have been a bit slack in the last few days, I won't beat myself up about it:)so I feel I deserve a treat of a People Tree Goody bag. Trouble is they sell like hot cakes and sell out so fast. Yes, I'm a kiddie at heart!

Essentials that would enhance the quality of my life:

* good blender

* Digital Camera or any camera oh how I miss capturing creative images

* boots

* a nice journal for living my dreams

Gotta get one of these says kiddie at heart!

The box contained one People Tree bag filled with a green summer dress, one black and white skirt, one red t-shirt and one scarf. None of them immediately struck me as being my style.

I then came to the final item which was a pair of pyjamas. A big grin came over my face - yes I'd struck gold.
I had been about to buy myself some new pyjamas from People Tree, but these past season ones were much nicer than the ones I had been intending to get.

In an increasingly buoyant mood, I looked at the other items again.
Whilst People Tree guarantee that each bag contains goods worth at least £80, a quick calculation in my head, comparing my items to current stock, showed that I would have spent at least £250 to buy it all in season.

One of the reasons I am a big fan of People Tree clothing, apart from its outstanding ethics, is that the clothes are interesting and unique. They are not fast fashion; I could wear a People Tree item in five years time and it would still look great.
This makes the fact that the items in the Goody Bags are from previous seasons a bit irrelevant.

Receiving the Goody Bag was rather like getting a vegetable box; you end up being discovering foods and being forced to eat things that you never ordinarily would have chosen.
I decided I did like the clothes after all and put most of them on together regardless of the fact that it wasn't my usual style and that they didn't really go together.

Being a conservative dresser I am still amazed at the positive feedback I have had over my younger and funkier look.

At £30 these bags are a great ethical bargain and as well as getting a guilt free fashion
