It’s time to wrap up the old and release what no longer serves us, and to create exactly what fulfills us!
Right now we are in Mercury retrograde (December 19 to January 8). During this Mercury retrograde, we are being challenged to look at what serves us and release the rest. Mercury is how we connect with our world and with others. It is time to review what is important for us right now; what is working, what is not.
Use this time to complete projects or communications that haven’t been finished. It’s also time for a major clean out. The old things or Patterns that aren’t working need to be cleaned out so that the new things coming in have place to land and grow. This is also a good time to de-clutter your home and work environment.
That leads us to Goal Setting versus New Year’s Resolutions. Most people find that they fall off the bandwagon with New Year’s Resolutions, mainly because all the factors that affect the outcome are not addressed.
After Mercury Retrograde I shall give you access to my signature “Goal Setting’ program, where I shall guide you through a series of steps to define your Goals in all areas of your life. The feedback I have had from those of you who did it last year is phenomenal.
I wish you and yours a Very Happy New Year. I wish that you be blessed with the best of health, happiness, peace, love and prosperity. May all your wishes be fulfilled.
Detoxifies your liver and boosts your immune system
Every morning drink a mug of hot water with fresh squeezed juice from an organic lime, small pinch organic turmeric, small pinch Himalaya Salt and ¼ teaspoon Organic or Manukah Honey.
Lime juice has a hint of bitter which makes it more effective but you can substitute organic lemon if you like. To get more juice you can soak the lime in hot water for few minutes and soften it by rolling it between your hands before cutting and squeezing.
Again, if you have health issues or are on any medications or supplements please check with your doctor or pharmacist before including this in your daily routine.
Traditional Chai Tea
8 cardamom pods ( green or white)
1-2 cinnamon stick pieces (depending on how strong a flavour you want)
1 level teaspoon ginger powder or more
Few black peppercorns – maximum 1 level teaspoon
1 teaspoon or more fennel seeds
1 star anise
1 pinch nutmeg
You can do a coarse grind the old fashioned way (pestle and mortar) or coffee grinder.
Milder version – You can cut down on the cinnamon and ginger powder and cut out black peppercorns and star anise.
Simmer three cups water with above blend and 3 teabags for about ten minutes then add 1 ½ cups of milk/almond milk and simmer for another 5 minutes. (After adding milk stir frequently) Pour and sweeten with maple syrup or Organic honey if desired and enjoy.
I usually put half the spice mixture in to simmer and then go with the aroma as to whether I want it spicier.
You could, if you like, do a bigger spice batch and store in a glass jar in your fridge.
Taz Breakfast tea
2 pods green cardamom
2 slices fresh Organic Turmeric
3-4 slices fresh Organic Ginger
