Gerald's new book The 7th Planet, Mercury Rising changed my life for the absolute better, and I'm not the only one! I'll let you do your own deep dive, but in short, hope and faith were restored and a new connection was found. I finally started doing the Mer Ka Ba on a consistent basis and that combined with studying the material in my husband's book opened my mind and restored my connection to my Higher Self and the Source, the Creator of All! What more could one ask for? Have you ever read a book that as you read it you can't stop highlighting it, or underlining it and you think, this is a good one, I'll keep this one nearby. It turns out to be a book that you refer to for years to come. THIS is that kind of book. Like the Power of Now, The Secret..even dare I say The Bible, this book is a spiritual masterpiece not to be discounted. I'm so honored to be Gerald's wife and soul-mate in this path. I don't really quite understand why I'm so lucky, but rather than decode it, I'll enjoy it!! Okay so enough about me, the good news is Gerald is holding a CONFERENCE at CHICHEN ITZA in September! Yucatan Symposium - Field Trip - Ascension - Networking - Enlightenment & More ! Read more at: https://www.geraldclark77.com/ascension-symposium.html.Taking Place: September 18 - 23, 2015.
We will be taking tours, doing guided meditations, networking and conferring all in the beautiful Yucatan, Mexico at the Fall Equinox near the sacred temples. I will be there as well and look forward to meeting you personally to those who can attend! The grounds we'll be staying on have access directly to the temples, a museum, art gallery (where we'll be conferring), spa, organic gardens with food harvested and used in their meals, a flora and fauna discovery and protection program, cooking classes and so much more! With nearby cenotes to explore, perhaps on horseback, the spirit and mind can imagine what a fun time it will be. Imagine seeing the serpent shadow and history right at your fingertips with Gerald aside you to further enlighten your journey! I am so excited!!!
Hope to see you there, have a great weekend!
Love & Light - Shine Ever So Bright!!
Strawberries and peaches are bound to entice your taste buds as you bite into your very own homemade fruit roll up! I've tried varieties in the past but I must say the strawberry peach flavor is a new favorite. I love how easy it is to make fruit roll ups or fruit leathers. Puree your favorite fruit in a blender or food processor and create a fruit roll up. They are a great way to use slightly overripe fruit when you aren't sure how to use it or if you are in need of a healthy snack.
Strawberry Peach Fruit Roll Ups:
This morning I was feeling refreshed after a very good nights sleep. We fueled up on some banana ice cream a.k.a. nice cream! I made it with bananas, strawberries, a touch of vanilla, a few dates and one tinsy tiny beet from our garden. It turned out so lush, rich, creamy and delicious. I divided it amongst two bowls and placed them in the freezer as I prepped the next layer. The 2nd layer was filled with papaya, bananas, a tiny dash of turmeric an ginger. I blended it up and drizzled it on top. We had some homemade strawberry jam in the fridge so I added a little bit of that as well. The best part is how good it is for your body! The beet cleanses your blood, the papaya and ginger aid in good digestion, the bananas offer a boost of energy and act as a mood booster! Add some strawberry chia jam with thyroid boosting benefits and you are set.

Papaya Sunrise ~ Layer 2:
OPT: Use your favorite berries, pass on the beet, skip the ginger and or turmeric, use a mango instead of a papaya, top with desired goodies - have fun!!
Best wishes for a refreshing Saturday!

Pecan butter is a new favorite nut butter in our home. It blends up incredibly nicely as it has a high content of healthy fats that once released create a luxurious buttery spread. The flavor is so good it's hard not to test it along the way. With a high speed blender or food processor homemade pecan butter can be yours! Add it to sandwiches, smoothies or have a spoonful for a nice healthy treat full of protein and fiber!

Sometimes there is nothing more comforting than a PB&J! It brings me right back to being a kid and fond memories. Those memories extend through out my life. Is it true for you? My husband is a huge fan and I knew he'd be tickled if I made him one. With homemade oat bread, pecan butter and strawberry jam, satisfaction was found!!
Oats and water plus a few other ingredients are all that will be needed to whip up a loaf of bread. It's not the fanciest loaf but it's warm, hot, gluten-free bread that works great as sandwich bread. Spread some nut butter and jam and you are eating few ingredients, all of which are healthy for you! No preservatives here, no additives, sugar, dairy, oil or gluten just 100% healthy ingredients to create a yummy sandwich!
For the bread:
Add Your Favorite Nut Butter and Jam. We chose a pecan butter with Homemade Strawberry Chia Jam!

The bread was sweet and the texture was perfect. I am making it again, this time using molasses, because agave is so expensive. I highly recommend this recipe."
Strawberry Jam! Fresh or Frozen Strawberries Chia Seeds blended in a blender or food processor = Jam! Add sweetener or lemon/lime juice as a preservative if desired. I added a touch of stevia for sugar free! Place in freezer for freezer jam or fridge to thicken. Super easy, incredibly empowering, healthy and delicious!
