earth's energy and a good night's rest - update

well since moving my bed to a north/south longitude.........the room feels more restful.......i walk into the room and 'feel' relaxed ahhh........
but the true test was the quality of sleep
i hope I'm not counting my chickens but this is the second night of less tossing and turning, AND
uninterrupted sleep......oh sweet sleep
there really is something to this I think
if you have the capability in your bedroom to move your bed to sit on this north/south longitude........I seriously recommend it.


Earth's Energy and sleeping

I moved my bed today....
it is now situated in line with the Earth's Energy
meaning- my bed now sits on a north/south longitude line --instead of the old east/west latitude
According to Feng Shui experts this alignment (in line with the earth's energy meridians) will provide not only a more restful sleep, but in turn health and wellness.
will keep you informed........


Eating Organically and Locally

I'm a big advocate of eating organically and locally.

By doing so, you support not only local farmers :), the canadian economy:), the environment:), but your own health:) :)

Pesticide spraying of foods prohibit the plants from making the valuable phytochemicals we need to fight off disease.

'harvest the power of phyto foods'

I want to share this book/cookbook on whole foods or plant foods

so rich in phytochemicals--chemical compounds found in foods that help to fight off auto-immune diseases like: cancer, diabetes, osteo-arthritis.

A friend gave it to me last year

EVERY recipe I have tried has been not only EASY-minimal prep, but DELICIOUS (big exclamation mark)

Check it out! Protect your health.
