Why You Should Soak Your Nuts and Seeds

High in vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy fats, nuts and seeds are little powerhouses of nutrition. However, nuts and seeds also contain phytic acid and large amounts of enzyme inhibitors which protect them from sprouting until they have the rain and sun they need to grow. And unfortunately, these natural chemicals are quite hard on the stomach.

So, if you’ve ever had tummy trouble after eating nuts and seeds, don’t give up on them yet!
Why You Should Soak Your Nuts and Seeds

In nature, a seed or nut normally gets enough moisture from rain to wash off the acids and enzyme inhibitors so it can germinate and produce a plant. By soaking nuts and seeds before you eat them, you imitate nature by neutralizing these toxic growth inhibitors, releasing the natural enzymes and vitality within them.

What is Healing?

The portion of the Bible we read this week, Pinchas, contains the energy of healing. And so let's use this week to ask the question: What is healing and how do we go about bringing this energy into our lives?

According to the kabbalists, healing begins when we make the internal changes that the universe asks of us. Whether we realize it or not, every time we perform a negative action, we move ourselves closer to the energy of the Desire to Receive for the Self Alone and death; while every time we perform a positive action of sharing, we move ourselves closer to our soul and life.

Healing happens when we consciously bring ourselves closer to the Light, especially when it's difficult or when we don't want to or when it is easier to fall prey to our negative thoughts.

What do I mean by this? Basically, when we are not at our best—say, when we've gone into bankruptcy or when our best friend has just dumped us—these are the times when we must say to ourselves, "I have certainty that even though I don't have the position I had before or I don't feel as good as I once did, I know that the sun is shining." These are the times when we have to say, "I know with certainty that I am part of the Creator's spirit, and even though He has taken me through this unhappy process, maybe it is to help me jump forward with the Light."

The truth is what most of us are looking for is that inner peace that comes when we can go to sleep at night after saying to ourselves, "I've done what I could today to make myself a better person and the world a better place." However, we do need to realize that all the things that go smoothly in our lives are just stepping stones to take us to another challenge, another level, another platform from which we can grow. Peace is not just the absence of chaos. Absolute peace comes only when we know that we have tried our best to reach our spiritual level. Yes, maybe we have failed, but nevertheless, we tried—and it is the trying that is important.

There are people who take perfect care of themselves physically but still manage to fall ill. Sometimes we can do our best for our body, but if we forget our soul, we will never achieve the growth that brings our body and soul into balance. So how do we get there?

Psoriasis

A month or two ago I gave to one of my massage clients a bottle of Heaven on Earth.

You know that the Heaven on Earth is an energy bundle. The 40 individual energies are the 40 negative feelings a human being can have, from anxiety to wrongful pride: all of them are in those 40.

The Heaven on Earth energies are infused in an aqueous (water based) solution and you take it in your drinking water, minimum 4 times a day, preferable throughout the day.

When a negative feeling arises, which is inevitable, the energy in the infusion (and now in your body) meets it and the two energies battle it out. Literally. They are matching energies, and depending on the strength of the feeling, it wins or the Remedy wins.
