Teja’s Top Ten High Vibration Foods

Dear reader, the information shared in this post is from my intuition and from things I’ve seen or heard about. I am not a physician and this is not medical advice! If you have any questions, please do your own research and/or ask your physician.

When you eat a whole foods plant-based diet there are so many wonderful foods that it is difficult to choose only ten, but these are my current faves, not in any particular order ~

~ Cinnamon ~ Oh so earthy! I love that cinnamon grows inside different kinds of evergreen trees in places like Sri Lanka. This high vibration spice has many health benefits, including help with regulating blood sugar. Some say that you should not consume more than one teaspoon per day because at high levels it can be toxic, so I just put a heaping half-teaspoon on my soaked oats each morning, and another fourth-teaspoon on my bedtime banana snack.

~ Potatoes ~ Wowsa, friends, I think that potatoes are one of the most healing foods on the planet. They are so high vibe that they rival green tea, which isn’t even on this list because my body prefers coffee now. (See “Coffee is Good Medicine.”) Potatoes are super grounding and do not deserve the bad rap they get in the media. Please watch this awesome video by Dr. John McDougall: “In Defense of the Potato.” ~ One key thing that he neglects to mention in this video is that people gain weight when they eat potatoes because of the unhealthy dairy fats that they eat with the potatoes. Potatoes by themselves are very healthy and they actually help people to lose weight.

~ Cabbage ~ Fresh, cooked, baked, steamed, or raw in sauerkraut, oh my, cabbage is one of the top vegetables for preventing cancer, and it so delicious! Please see my post “Sauerkraut is the New Yogurt… Or the New Apple”

~ Millet ~ Have you ever cooked millet? It is by far my favorite grain. It is so hearty, earthy, and filled with nutrients and healthy protein. A few years ago I went through a phase in which I cooked millet every morning for breakfast (adding nuts, raisins, spices, and sometimes dark chocolate chips!)… and then I snacked on the leftovers during the day, and sometimes even finished them for dinner! If you haven’t enjoyed this grain, I highly recommend you try it, and then please do let me know how you like it…

~ Almonds ~ There is something very soothing and grounding about these nuts. They grow on small funny-looking trees, with beautiful blossoms. A healthy source of protein and nutrients, almonds have many health benefits. They taste best when you roast them yourself! Have you ever eaten a warm almond right out of the oven? If not, please treat yourself to that experience!

~ Blueberries ~ Super high in antioxidants and helpful in relieving anxiety and depression, these little blue healers pack a serious punch in terms of elevating your health on every level: mental health, emotional health, physical health, and spiritual health.

~ Walnuts ~ High in the Omega-3 Fatty Acids that balance the Omega-6 Fatty Acids, walnuts are a daily staple for me. They are so good for the brain that one elderly woman even reversed dementia by eating a lot of walnuts! Every time I talk to my elder son, who is in college and using his brain a lot, I remind him to eat his walnuts and blueberries!

~ Raisins ~ I love eating raisins in my soaked oats breakfast… I especially like to imagine how those grapes dried into raisins under hot rays of holy Sunshine! That is an amazing alchemical transformation, if you really think about it!

~ Coconut ~ Holy Coconut Shells, to me the coconut is super sacred, and I have a vision for the human species to shift from the dairy habit into the high vibration coconut experience! This vision arose from the deep compassion that I feel for the cows, who are suffering so much. Please join me in replacing dairy products with coconut products!

~ Ginger ~ This earthy, spicy, warming root has major mojo in terms of healing powers. I put one-fourth teaspoon of ginger powder in my soaked oats each morning, and I love cooking with fresh ginger root. Do you regularly cook with ginger? If not, what are you waiting for?!

And a bonus: my eleventh favorite is parsley! ~ Do you love parsley? Did you know that in Moroccan cooking they use large amounts of parsley… it is not just a little sprig of garnish in that cuisine! Parsley has many health benefits, including helping the body to detoxify…

And… Coffee is my top high vibrational drink of choice. Soon I will post some powerful practices you can do with your cuppa coffee… (or tea)…

I hope you enjoyed this food list!

May you be healthy and happy!

With compassion and high vibes,
Teja

Beyond Memes

Original creative content catches my eye. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good meme… But have you noticed that the memes sometimes take over on social media?

When I’m scrolling my Facebook feed, for example, I love to see photos of flowers, animals, families, and places in nature. Bright colorful images inspire me and make me feel happy.

I used to feel more enchanted by all the memes, but lately not so much. It seems like the memes just say the same things over and over, and I would rather read what my friends are thinking themselves, rather than quotes from the “Power of Positivity” page. Can you relate to this?

I do appreciate some of the more creative memes, especially the humorous ones… One of my favorite memes ever had this quote by Bob Ross (American painter, 1942-1995, who had a TV show called The Joy of Painting): “Ever make mistakes in life? Let’s make them birds. Yeah, they’re birds now.”

When I was googling to make sure I had that quote right, I found this other really great quote by him: “We want happy paintings. Happy paintings. If you want sad things, watch the news.”

That quote really resonated with me, because I think it is so important for all of us to continually work on happy-ing up! There is so much sadness in this world, and watching the news can really drag you down. If you feel that you must watch the news, consider viewing it weekly rather than daily, and if you feel anxious or negative afterwards, do some spiritual practices or visualizations to happy up and raise your vibration.

Anyhow, back to the topic of memes… I rarely share memes on Facebook, because I prefer to see original, creative content, and so that is what I offer myself… But I do appreciate a good meme, and I just discovered that The Hummingbird’s Journal has a page on Instagram, and Andrea is creating memes that are beyond the usual memes. She is pairing quotes from her own blog posts with beautiful images, resulting in high caliber, high vibration memes! Bravo, Andrea! 🙂

What do you think about memes? Do you enjoy them? Do you get tired of them? Do you long to see more original creative content on social media?

Are You of the World?

Jesus said, “Be in the world but not of the world.”

When I think of how it is for me, I see that I am definitely not OF the world, and I am trying to figure out how to be IN the world!

What about you? Are you of the world? Or, like me, are you not of the world, and trying to figure out how to be in it? Or, are you balanced in the way that Jesus recommended, in the world but not of it?

I am a spiritual helper… I am not a perfect spiritual being. I am walking my path and dealing with what arises as best I can. I know a lot of tools for happy-ing up, that I use regularly and they work for me, so I am inspired to share them with others… But, I am not perfectly peaceful at all times. I get triggered, I get irritated, I get sad.

And, I experience some very high vibrational states in which I feel incredible love and an uncommon amount of compassion for all beings… But, I do not live in those amazingly blissful states all the time. I find myself judging and worrying. I get offended and hurt. I expect too much of others and then feel disappointed.

And, lately I am feeling very, very happy about this new nun chapter of my life, and I am feeling super inspired to help others as much as I can (given the limitations of my body)… So perhaps I am figuring out how to “be in the world” more than I realize!

Maybe when I launch my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life, I will truly be in the world…

So, dear readers, what is your status on this topic?
