Pat Rodegast channeling Emmanuel. Introduction by Ram Dass, includes interviews with Pat.

I feel there are essential teachings within this video whether you choose to believe in channeling or that it is merely a deep part of knowing from Pat. If you have an hour I recommend a listen with an open mind & heart 🙂

These teachings stood out for me:

You are held in the hands of God and you are absolutely safe

What to do (with someone who is lost): 

Become the loving teacher 

Be who you are in as much love as you posses, as you have allowed yourself to remember 

Be that loving remembering human being in the company of the forgetter 

They will see your light when they are ready. They will hear you when they can

And pray for them 

One thing a day dear ones That you do not love, bring it into your attention And lovingly examine it. Be aware of  yourself as you pursue this wisdom and say yes to yourself every inch of the way 

The bedtime story: 

Yes I will let you love me!

I will put myself clearly on the altar of faith and I will say to you and to you and to the light and the oneness of all, yes! Yes I will let you love me!

Then two became one again and you put on her wings and returned home 

Reflections on healing while walking with Jessa

Healing is rarely abrupt more a slow unfolding, a shedding layer by layer in gratitude for the collection of sacred spaces of deep rest, gentle intentional movements and reflection. A collection of ordinary moments where we are fully present.

We pray that support comes to us, not to add things into our life, but to support us in letting go of the layered protections that are no longer necessary. The support of reminders of our connection, reminders of source, reminders of our blessed birthright to be fully human. The support of an old friend or the kind eyes of a stranger. Support from the presence of a sentient fury one, a tree, the sounds of the river, the call of one with wings, the sun, her warmth on our cheeks.

Root down, head to heart, heart to belly, belly to sacrum, sacrum to feet, feet to soil. Feeling free to move, to dance and explore the great mysteries of soul, of our divine uniqueness, the teachings in our pain. The strength to do the work needed due to trauma. 

May we be grateful for this very moment.

A practice:

Come to your breath. The inhalation through the nose, the soft belly rises, the spine is neutral, shoulders resting on the rib cage, feel the lower ribs in their excursion horizontally. The slow exhalation through our nose or mouth, the belly falls, the lower ribs coming back toward the spine.

When in doubt come back to the body, come back to the breath. Just breathe, walk, see with a holy present gaze, a newness, a unique vantage point. Feel gratitude, feel your wholeness, your connection. We are all beloved sons and daughters of the Creator. Fear not the other. The other is an illusion, yet it is a great teacher to listen to and learn from.

And when we are present, there are no ordinary moments…(thank you Dan Millman) 

We Feed On Ourselves

I recall in my medical residency,  while on a pediatric rotation, the pediatrician was encouraging me to invest in defense stocks. He stated, “I made a killing off of the Iraq war.” 

We feed on ourselves 

For 7 years I worked for the Benton County Health System, their 401(k) invests in Kraft Foods, a company  responsible for the creation of so much disease. 

Look at our food system, you walk into the grocery store and what do you see first? Sugar and flour, the foods of kings and queens that only the wealthy could afford in the 1700s at the advent of our industrial food system. “Let them eat cake” Mary Antoinnette said at the time of the French Revolution.  Now that refined food, that white flower, that sugar, oils and high fructose corn syrup,  that industrialized animal agriculture industry is killing us. A gradual steady slow death, a fast rate of degeneration, stealing our anatomy day by day. The system kill us & kills our shared home. 

A food system that creates disease so that a medical & pharmaceutical  system can profit off of this disease. Managing disease,  prolonging life, yes but  a clear quantity over quality reality for most.

We feed on ourselves 

We are asleep to our shared heart space. There is a deep chasm between our soul, our True Self/True Health and the false self. Can we look inward and practice deep listening? Can we feel one another? Or do we falsely continue to fear one another. Separation is an allusion. We are governed by fear and greed, primal survival behavior with a false narrative that perpetuates the corporate machine of death. 

We feed on ourselves 

We are asleep living, a slow death propped up by pharmaceutical Band-Aids, symptom Aids and digital distractions causing daytime apnea, further chasms in genuine connection, abandoned souls, our flesh and depressed reactive consumerism is the fuel for this predatory system.

A intention for repair, for healing, for justice, for forgiveness, for breath, for grounding, for dance and song.

May all beings be happy and free.

May we awaken to our shared heart space.

Awaken to our connections as perfectly imperfect holy beings, one human family. 

May we heal our shared  collective, individual & ancestral trauma. 

May we repair our relationships.

May we  repair & restore our shared home, this planet earth. 

May we stop  investing in stocks that capitalize on suffering, disease and war. 

May we return to our roots where we grow our food locally. 

May we gaze into the eyes of our brothers and sisters.

May we help one another.

May we  love one another.

I am committed to grow more awake and to see and feel more deeply. To not succumb to the numbing forces available under this culture that is out of balance.

I am committed to forgive, to listen, to eye gaze and smile. To feel & see others as they are, children of our Creator.

I am grateful.

This is my prayer today.

Doctor Explains the latest Vegan vs Keto head to head study

New NIH Study Published Jan 2021:
“Effect of a plant-based, low-fat diet versus an animal-based, ketogenic diet on ad libitum energy intake”

The plant based diet group lost more body fat and the keto group lost mostly water weight.

Even though the LFPB diet had higher insulin levels than the Keto diet, the Keto diet had greater glucose intolerance.

Note: this is one of the best controlled studies on diet I have ever seen,
“Further, all meals were prepared and provided for participants in an inpatient setting, which may make results difficult to repeat outside the lab, where factors such as food costs, food availability, and meal preparation constraints can make adherence to diets challenging. The tightly controlled clinical environment, however, ensured objective measurement of food intake and accuracy of data.”

Yup, locked in a building for the entire study. LOL!

Mars

The fascination with Mars is an intriguing one. Perhaps it would best serve us to think of it as our future self, that red dead planet is what the earth is destined for if we don’t stop killing each other, killing ourselves and this miraculous shared home. If we continue to be controlled by greed and fear, scapegoating the other, avoiding the dark work of our souls, to the life and love of our true selves where otherness is an allusion and only love is real.
