Becoming the Artist of Your Life


artist collage
You, as a Divine soul in a human body, are an artist, as well as Divine artwork.
You, operating in this human body, are the designer holding the paintbrush or the sculptor molding the clay. But what are you creating?
Is your life feeling like a black and white cartoon, devoid of color and depth? Or, is your life feeling like a lump of clay?
Oh, you’ve pushed, prodded, pulled, pinched, extruded, and thrown the clay in the hopes of building something beautiful, but the clay didn’t cooperate. Most likely, it was because the mind was taking over the artistic process.
Have you noticed that masterpieces are brought forth from the heart, and not necessarily the mind? Although the heart and mind must work cooperatively, the true artwork is from your center…your heart. (Click to tweet)
As artists (and we are all artists), we create from emotions. The energy from our feelings gives way to the motions of creation, no matter the artistic medium used.
Some of the most spectacular pieces of art are created from a place of pain, sorrow, rage, or fear. However, before those pieces could be created, the artist needed to feel. They needed to emerge from a state of numbness or stasis. They had to get to a point where they could transmute the energy into physical movements. They had to get to a point where they could transmute the energy into physical movements.
Those movements could in fact be painting, drawing, cooking, writing, meditating, singing or dancing. The point is, the energy needs to FLOW.
It is time to express. It is time to begin the journey beyond the mind. Harness the power inside you, for it is waiting to join this dance called life.
The time is now to bring your masterpiece alive.
I’d love to know how YOU are creating your masterpiece!
If you are unsure where to even start, or feel like you are in a rut or feel powerless, please leave a comment. You are not alone; I and our other readers are all here to support and encourage.
I see you, Artist.

Eating Hempseed Products To Treat Tourette Syndrome


Tourette Syndrome is an inherited neuropsychiatric disorder that often comes on in childhood, characterized by multiple physical (motor) tics and at least one vocal tic. These characteristics wax and wane, can be suppressed temporarily, and are preceded by a premonitory urge. Tourette’s is defined as a part of a spectrum of tic disorders. Genetic and environmental factors play a role in the etiology of Tourette’s, but the exact causes are unknown. In most cases, medication is unnecessary. There is no effective treatment for every case of tics, but certain medications and therapies can help when their use is warranted.

Tics are sudden, repetitive, nonrhythmic movements (motor tics) and utterances (phonic tics) that involve discrete muscle groups. Motor tics are movement-based tics, while phonic tics are involuntary sounds produced by moving air through the nose, mouth, or throat.

Motor tics are movement-based tics affecting discrete muscle groups.

Phonic tics are involuntary sounds produced by moving air through the nose, mouth, or throat. They may be alternately referred to as verbal tics or vocal tics, but most diagnosticians prefer the term phonic tics to reflect the notion that the vocal cords are not involved in all tics that produce sound.

Tics may increase as a result of stress, fatigue, boredom, or high-energy emotions, which can include negative emotions, such as anxiety, but positive emotions as well, such as excitement or anticipation. (Wikipedia)

Treatment of Tourette’s does not always indicate the use of medication; often therapy and education are enough.

It has been proven that a proper diet high in nutrients can treat many illness and disorders, and Tourette’s may also be treated with diet (along with behavioral therapy).

Tourette’s may be the result of imbalance, particularly in the brain, and it may also be the result of emotional factors, as well as environmental factors. Emotional distress causes an imbalance in the brain as well.

The brain is mainly comprised of fatty acids. Insufficient fatty acids can cause brain related disorders (depression, inability to process emotions, bipolar, Alzheimers, to name a few). Eating a diet rich in unprocessed, chemical-laden foods is also important. Fresh, raw foods will help the body balance and heal. Hempseed is very rich in protein and other nutrients as well.

Getting enough essential fatty acids (Omega fatty acids) is very important, and because hemp has the perfect ratio of fatty acids for the body, it may be a good way to help treat Tourette’s.

The recommended daily serving of hempseed is 2-5 Tablespoons per day. That will give the perfect amount of fatty acids; hemp is also an excellent source of protein, amino acids, vitamins, and phytosterols.
