Book Review: Voyages into the Unknown by Bruce Moen

Book Review: Voyages into the Unknown

Bruce Moen’s book, Voyages into the Unknown is deep and profound, with it’s assay into the bottomless mysteries one might imagine when you dare to dive into Afterlife exploration.

Sometimes, the word for word familiarity was uncanny with things I have experienced–other times, passages or terms were, at least initially, way over my head. Yet, Bruce’s writing kept me intrigued from start to finish–though I’m not entirely finished, as there are more books in this series to eagerly inspect.

For those of us who love fiction based on true stories, enjoy deep and riveting mysteries, or simply have a passion to dig through the numerous tangles within our Connections, I believe you’ll find this a treasured book.

Voyages into the Unknown
Voyages into the Unknown

I have enjoyed the challenge and stretch Voyages has brought to my ever evolving consciousness.

Consciousness, as a topic and in all of its aspects, beckons me to study it further, not out of mere curiosity as much as out of this fantastical question of “where do I stop and you begin?” –and because of my mother, aunt, and grandmother all suffered with Alzheimer’s dis-ease. I am a sleuth of sorts, always and in ALL ways forward-thinking to try and solve the riddle of why we’re here.

Connections

I came to know Bruce’s writing through his beloved wife, Pharon. And I desired to finish her husband’s book before embarking on a Sacred Celtic Journey with my husband (a journey that Pharon, Patricia McGivern, Kim Cintio, and several more would also join).

I met Pharon on my Sedona journey, and we have stayed connected since. But, I had not gotten to know Bruce before his passing, or crossing over beyond The Veil. And I wanted to learn about him and his Afterlife exploration from having attended his memorial service, or Celebration of Life.

In order to live a wholly vibrant life, I feel we must continually expand our awareness. And when I saw several people from Bruce’s past Afterlife exploration attend his service (from as far away as Japan), I knew I must read his books. I love reading books, but reading books by those I know (or know their family member) is a real thrill!

Synchronicities

I don’t want to reveal too much, but I thought you might be interested in a few inside peeks to see what engaged me so much!

I’ll share three relevancies or synchronicities that struck a chord within me as I read, Voyages into the Unknown:

1) “Bits and pieces that ring true to your own experience…” (Bits and Pieces was the name of an establishment in my hometown of which, I can’t explain much about except it intrigued me and I looked forward to going there for years. When I was finally old enough to get in, it had closed for business.)

2) “All the events of my life seem so woven together and interconnected…” (I probably don’t need to explain why this sentence resonated with me, but if I do, read this.)

3) A powerful explanation about reoccurring dreams and how many times we remember these dreams 30 or 40 years later!

Believe it or not – a key to healing

Bruce details in his book a question that I have pondered for years. Why some people can have spontaneous healing in their bodies, yet others not–and while I agree none of us can really know how much Faith a person has, I dare say that I’ve known many who displayed great Faith (especially believing for others), yet continued to personally suffer. A key answer to this perplexing conundrum is put forth in Voyages–and it relates to how each must believe within our own frame of reference for the body to accept the healing!!!

Fascinating topics

If you are fascinated by any of the following, I believe (no, I FEEL), that you’ll love Voyages into the Unknown:

  • Afterlife exploration
  • Astrology
  • Hypnosis
  • Numerology
  • Paranormal experiences
  • Past lives
  • Quantum entanglement
  • Reincarnation

I wish for all of my readers to have fantastical synchronicities and experiences also!

Be open to receive.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Amen and Namaste. OM

Gluten-free, sugar-free, high fiber delicious mug muffin recipe!

Delicious gluten-free, sugar-free, high fiber mug muffin recipe

If you’ve been doing Keto or Paleo for awhile (or any of the grain free, gluten-free, and sugar-free diets), I really think you’re going to love this EASY and delicious muffin recipe! I know I’m madly in love with it.

Missing bread, cake, or dessert?

I really believe I have found my answer to cake and bread! I’d been missing it after not eating cake or bread in a year. Now, by adding this muffin to my one meal a day, I feel full, I’ve increased my daily fiber intake, and I’m experiencing better (easier) BMs–a real win-win in my humble opinion!

The ingredients

Note: T = Tablespoon and t = teaspoon.

Dry ingredients 

1 T coconut flour or Amaranth flour
1 T nut flour
1 T oat bran
2 t Ceylon cinnamon (helps to regulate blood sugar)
1/2 t baking powder

Wet ingredients

1/2 T wet chia seed, or soaked & ground flaxseed, or 1 T pulp from making nut milk, or pumpkin, peanut butter, chopped pear, or apple butter
1 raw egg (jumbo size works best to turnout a fluffier muffin)
1/2 t vanilla
Splash of water (especially if you’re using a regular sized egg)
Topping after the muffin is cooked
1 T butter, or hard coconut oil, or yogurt (helps you get more healthy fat into your diet)

How to mix it

You can mix the dry ingredients in a bowl first and set aside. Or you can add them two at a time and stir in the same mug used to whisk the wet ingredients.
In your mug, whisk the raw egg in the mug and add other wet ingredients. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients to the mug and mix well. A thick batter consistency is what you want to see. (If the mix is too dry or sticky, the muffin will be dry.) This is the art involved in making an aWEsOMe muffin–and totally worth playing around with!
Place mug (uncovered) in the microwave and cook on high for 2 minutes. (The time may vary depending on the strength of your microwave. My daughter has a new Whirlpool microwave and 1 minute 35 seconds is perfect!)
The muffin will rise above the mug. This is fine. Let it cook. When the oven stops cooking, the muffin will decompress in the mug.
Use a spoon or butter knife to remove the muffin from the mug. Slice the muffin in half lengthwise to add topping and enjoy. (My husband and I share one of these after our dinner and it’s such a treat!)
All ingredients organic, free range, etc.

Depending upon whether you add chopped pear, apple butter, peanut butter, pumpkin, cacao, or other the nutritional values will differ.
The basic mug muffin will be about 178-180, with 6 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar, and 10 grams protein. Since I’m following a modified Keto diet, I don’t count the fat grams.

What I use

Yes, I bought my coconut flour from the cold case at Ionie’s Cafe in Sarasota, Florida. (It keeps for a long time in the fridge too!). And if you’d like, check out this post I wrote about Ionie’s here.
The other brand of coconut flour we tried was Bob’s Red Mill, and it does add a coconut flavor to the muffin if you don’t use another flour to offset it.
And the brand of eggs I’ve been buying–yes, it probably has something to do with the name 😉

How it looks – while making it and after

This is the whisked egg, vanilla, and 1/2 t of water in the mug:

Serving with cream cheese:

Experiment with it

I’ve been experimenting with this muffin recipe and adding peanut butter, pumpkin, or raw cacao in place of the Ceylon cinnamon. I’ve tried apple pie spice instead of the cinnamon, but the point for me was to really use this muffin as a way to reduce my overall blood sugar.  If that’s your goal too, you could use 1 T of the Ceylon cinnamon and 1 T of the apple pie spice–and see if you can taste the difference. (I can’t).

Initially, the muffins I had been making were very fluffy. Even the ones I created BEFORE using the Baking Powder. I think I was using 2 T of flour at the beginning though, 1 was coconut flour and the other was Amaranth flour. Also, I had used a jumbo sized egg.

I’ve used a tablespoon of chopped fresh pear (or apple butter) as an addition and it made an even fluffier (and larger) moist muffin. (I tried a green apple, but preferred the pear or apple butter instead–if you go with the pear it adds more fiber too!) I doubt there’s any limit of what you can do with this.

Some of the health benefits

I had been looking for a way to incorporate oat bran into my diet (since going grain-free over a year ago), because I realized I needed the health benefits of fiber. Namely, fiber is necessary to do a good detox (detoxify the body), and ease a bowel movements (BM). Simply adding this muffin once a day made my BMs more productive. I am still surprised at the difference it made–and how quick the change occurred!

Whatever works – Fascia Blasting

Ashley Black’s Fascia Blasting Products

First, I have been fascia blasting for a little over two weeks as of this writing. (Stay tuned for updates.)

For those who have read my blogs for any length of time, or my books, (in particular, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!) you know that I say do whatever works for you (no matter what others tell you. And I apply that philosophy not only to food, but exercise, spirituality, relationships, and so on. If it works for you, why let the judgments of others cause you a moment of angst?

Why the negativity?

I’ve had two female friends tell me they “heard” negative stuff about fascia blasting when I mentioned I was doing it. I didn’t answer either of them. I love blasting and have seen and felt results in only two weeks!!! (Pics to come later).

I don’t even know why I mentioned it to either gal though, because this was just something I was drawn to do during a very emotional time–not as something to blog about.

I am in a private Facebook group (FasciaBlasters for Women) about fascia blasting and I realize people can misuse these devices, as well, some people with certain limitations and issues shouldn’t use them. But one needs to read Ashley’s book and use good sense. I am learning so much in the group about how to use these products. It’s very encouraging!

Emotional ease & focus

Mostly, blasting has helped me focus on my body and ease me through the grief process of losing my dad a few weeks ago.

You see, my dad passed away unexpectedly and as though that wasn’t bad enough, I am his sole heir and administrator of his estate.

After only recently completing my book, I knew from writing it that I didn’t want to fall into depression. And one way to stay upbeat while going through a life change is to exercise. But, that’s a weak area for me.

So, I ordered something new (Ashley’s fascia blaster kit) to help myself, and potentially help ease my husband’s back pain (from overuse at work).

Photo credit: https://www.ashleyblackguru.com

Thanks to Ashley

I didn’t notice much the first few days on my skin (except some bruising as the book says can occur) after blasting, but I did feel more energized and positive, and my husband said his back tension eased after I worked on his back the first day! So, I kept on using it.

Within two weeks, my skin on my arms, legs, and abdomen was noticeably smoother and less cellulite “bumpy” looking. I didn’t take “before” pictures, because I really didn’t expect to write about this, since it is sooo personal.

You can learn more about fascia blasting here.

I am so thankful for Ashley Black, her informative book, and fascia blasting products! #HatersGonnaHate #LetThem #Winning ❤️🦋🌀😉

About “Being Supportive”

p.s. The two friends are both in health fields. One is an aesthetician and the other is a personal trainer who sells Yamuna products and training. I have supported both in the past and was disheartened that they had to talk negatively to me about blasting. 🤯🤭

After you get what you want

After you get what you want

What happens after you get everything in life that you think you want?

What happens then, and what IS this life about?

Desiring

Every moment we desire something. We desire warmth, safety, deeper connections. Oh, you thought I was going to say we want to be happy! Ha! But what if the “pursuit of happiness” was simply the equivalent of a mouse on a wheel? What if we just want to fulfill each of our desires, when we desire them? Nah! That would be too easy, and we’d all be fat and lazy. Where’s the fun in that? (I think most of us want to do it our way.)

So, in this blog I’ve talked a lot about how we can live a vibrant life. Get healthy, connect, and let go of stuff (unless it’s something IMHO we can use to increase our level of health and wellness). I guess you can see the irony in that and what I am about to state next.

I have been following Chris Cade for many years. Oh, I never bought his book or bought anything from him, but I read his emails every day, for YEARS!

Learning

I’ve sat with gurus, coaches, doctors, and mentors, who taught me many things about health and wellness, meditation, business, longevity, technology, personal development and spirituality, and learned much in the ways to boost my knowledge and confidence. What I learned enhanced and improved my overall sense of emotional balance and well-being.

As well, I’ve bought other books from authors such as Eckart Tolle, Neale Donald Walsch, Louise Hay, and Wayne Dyer about the value of being in the present moment and releasing judgement and “ego.” But, when I listened to Chris’ video about the books that changed his life, some new building block tapped into place with me.

Sharing

I learned from great ones, and the wisdom I impart is because I stand on their shoulders. I’ve given credit (on my blog home page and in my book) to most, if not all, of those who I have learned from, but I have not always supported them financially (because I think I’m so smart–which is another lie of the ego).

http://www.chriscade.com

Therefore, I am eager and thrilled to report that I am now a monthly Patreon supporter of Chris Cade’s work. And it makes me feel so good, like I’ve come full circle in my own journey. (Plus, I’ll finally get to study a Course in Miracles, in the way he’s organized it).

I live my life differently based upon a lot of little things I’ve learned and incorporated, but there are few books I’ve read multiple times and studied, that literally changed my worldview (or actually, my spiritual view and set point).

Feeling

Here’s a link to one of the main books that I’ve grown from, Christ in You, that changed my life. (And one of the few books I bought multiple copies of and given to family and close friends).

And as for Connections, I feel we’re all building blocks that the next generations will use as guideposts along their life journeys. That knowing makes me FEEL existentially wonderful–not only happy. 🙂

Thank you so much for following along and learning WITH me. OM

❤️🦋🌀

Seeing more by expanding awareness

Expanding awareness

I am currently reading two books, Voyages into the Unknown by Bruce Moen and Healing Myself, One Rhyme at a Time by Donna Sivoli. And as I read from each this beautiful Easter morning, I was given an expanded view of our Connections.

Connections

You see, I know of both authors only through their loved ones. I came to know Bruce’s writing through his beloved wife, Pharon. And I came to know Donna’s writing through her beloved daughter, Shelley.

I met Pharon on my Sedona journey, and I met Shelley, first via a YouTube interview I had found while doing research on one of my favorite topics, We Are All Connected; and a few months later in person at the Brooksville Native American festival.

Timeless

Sensing that both my friendship with Pharon and my friendship with Shelley were beyond the bounds of time, when they told me their loved ones had been writers, I was eager to buy and read the books they had written.

I will write book reviews on each later. But this, I needed to say now.

In order to live a wholly vibrant life, I feel we must continually expand our awareness.

Synchronicities

Thus, on this resurrection morning, I woke up ready to read and expand perception.

As I read, I was given three synchronicities. Three messages, one after another, that meant a great deal to me. And just to top off my experience, a friend I used to work with (at two different places) sent me a little Easter meme of a gold rose and a blue egg!

I am utterly grateful!

Each message I received was profound and uplifting. I sit in awe and humility at the tapestry of experiences involved to bring these words and images together to enhance my day, indeed my life.

I wish for all of my readers to have the same meaningful blessings occur today.

Be open to receive.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Amen and Namaste. OM

❤️🦋🌀

Grief and grieving

Grieving loss

Grief

We all know people die. Yet, most don’t want to talk about it. Some will say, “I’m sorry for your loss” when they hear that you’ve lost a loved one. What does that mean? I’m sorry too! I’m sorry that I didn’t spend more time with the person who passed on. I’m sorry I didn’t always listen when they were speaking to me. I’m sorry I didn’t really get to know the person, or try to see their many aspects, or understand them, or love them more.

Everything has changed. Broken.
Everything has changed. Broken.

Life goes by fast. Any of us can take our last breath at any moment. Really. I never had much of an understanding of that until my dad died in his sleep on March 8th, 2019–last week (for those reading this now at the time I’m posting this). I am deep in grief.

Sometimes no words are needed. I am sorry for your grief, might be a better way to express our condolences. But, I don’t know. For who the hell am I?

This morning I told my husband, “Let’s try to make this a positive morning” and no sooner than I’d said that, I literally picked up my phone to read of a friend’s passing this last Tuesday!!! I put my phone down and lost it again. Sobbing, I couldn’t wrap my mind around how a beautiful young mother of two amazing young sons could die unexpectedly. Dumbfounded. She was an utter light and JOY to all who knew her.

Again, it brought the thought back to me that any of us could cross over to the Grand Beyond at any time. Is this what we’re sorry for? That’s life’s so short? That our time is so fleeting?

Incredibly sad was also the fact that only a few days after this beautiful young mother of two passed, another young lady I’d taken a healing class with, also transitioned to the Grand Beyond. I sobbed as the loss of her enveloped me. We had a soul-connected sisterly conversation after that class and I had hoped to attend more sessions with her.

So, yes, I feel the loss. I grieve for my papa and for my friends. I grieve for all I’ve lost, but there’s a wink from the Universe that, We Are All Connected. I know grief is a process and I am open, just a little bit, to smile again. I know that every moment given to sadness is a moment lost to JOY!

I will see you again beloved dear ones.

Reaching for Grace

Yes, “Thank You” to the Universe, to God, to each of us, for being who we are on the planet. For reaching for grace whenever we can. We are not perfect, and we do not control others, or anything really.

As I take the next long and luscious deep breath, I reach for Grace. When someone cuts me off in traffic, I “send them Love.” (Eternal thanks to Miraga and her dear husband, Joe for sharing that teaching with me years ago.) I keep practicing this, as I feel it’s a worthy thing to do. I feel the ripples of uplifting energy pulse from me when I try. I am not perfect, but I am progressing on a profound journey. And so are you.

When one offers grace, real joy, one can be, do, and have serenity. Many wonderful and beautiful synchronicities will appear to you. Trust in that.

Blessings to you in ALL ways.

Making changes

Making changes

Yes, you are the only one you can change. You can do this in a loving way or making lots of trial and error actions. There are easy ways; there are difficult choices. Either way, you are the only one who can really change YOU for you (and for no other).

I Am not Above or Below you...
I Am not Above or Below you…

 

Anger

 Yes, anger can be good sometimes. Use it as fuel to change yourself (not any other).

 Getting mad at the “I’m not good enough” or other negative self talk that has never served you, can propel you to leave it, to walk away from that thing you believe about yourself that has never served you well.

Irritation is a form of anger. Perhaps it’s a lighter form, but it is still anger. Instead of hurling it at yourself or another, use it as a catalyst to change whatever it is that you’re unhappy with. 

Unsatisfied

As the famous song says, you may not get what you want, but if you try, you can get what you need. Focus only on the necessities, until you have those working in your life. You don’t need to buy furniture polish until you have furniture. You don’t need to buy furniture until you have a place to put it. Get your priorities in order first. Needs, then the “nice to have” things. And remember, stuff doesn’t really make anyone happy. Happiness is an inside job. It really is.

Gratitude

To feel more calm and ease in your life, begin every night to think of at least a few things you are thankful for. And each morning, say “Thank You” to the Universe, to God, to yourself, just for your breath. For whatever shelter you have. For being a person with unlimited possibilities. The world really is your oyster.

When one lives in gratitude, real thankfulness, one can be, do, and have contentment. And many wonderful paths will open to you. Trust in that. 

You can do this. You can breathe more peace and calm into the space in and around you.

Blessings to you in ALL ways.
