I was always skeptical of psychics. When I played with the Ouija Board at childhood slumber parties, I was the one pushing the planchette.

But as I grew older, I realized that many people who claim to be psychics were people who possessed the ability to connect with others on energetic levels. They are intuitive people.

The company I’m in isn’t all bad. Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes (the king of logic and reason), regularly consulted spiritualists to speak with the dead. This practice was much to the dismay of his friend Harry Houdini who considered séances to be outright frauds. A smattering of movie stars, kings, queens, and politicians have consulted the guidance of people who claim to have connections on the other side or the inner side.

The nighttime mind breeds dragons, and insomniacs are vigilant.

There is no reliable remedy for insomnia. Every night, insomnia shape shifts like jazz, a familiar tune’s movements morphed by personal idiosyncrasies and mood.

Individual as it may be, insomnia is a widespread woe. Some polls indicate that as many as 60% of Americans experience some form of chronic sleeplessness. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a majority of Americans believe that lack of sleep negatively impacts work, relationships and health.

With good reason, sleep deprivation is considered a form of torture.

The skin is your body’s largest organ.

About a quarter of the body’s detoxification is done through the skin which makes it “the third kidney,” after the kidneys and the lungs, of course.

If you make skin brushing part of your morning routine, not only will you will tighten the skin, remove cellulite and stimulate digestion, but you will also remove toxins from the body.

Your skin can become a storehouse for toxins due to off pH levels in soaps, skin creams and antiperspirants, and your skin absorbs the toxins from synthetic dyes and fibers from clothes.

“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

That is a quote from Ann Wigmore, an early advocate of living foods and wheatgrass juice for detoxifying and healing the body, mind and spirit.

If you eat what’s alive, you become alive.

Food is supposed to be nourishing, so the standard American diet (SAD) isn’t food.  It’s loaded with animal, saturated and hydrogenated fats.  It’s highly processed and low in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients, complex carbohydrates and fiber. Everything on the SAD plate has traveled thousands of miles, and it’s been mangled by pesticides and preservatives.
