Recently, aches and pains led me to Dr. Andrew Weill’s Anti-Inflammatory Diet, (http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/PAG00361/anti-inflammatory-food-pyramid.html) online, which I like, and it’s free, and although it’s too soon to know how it works, it’s already paid off in a new food discovery: red quinoa. You’re supposed to eat a lot of grains in this diet, which led me to this intense-looking little grain from the Andes. Red quinoa has a unique texture, kind of springy, and it’s bursting with energy, yet light. Rinsed, toasted, and boiled, it flowers into something delicious in about 17 minutes. Red quinoa is pricey, but they explain why it is on the package and I went for it. (Whole Foods carries it.)
Further investigation of Andy Weill’s site revealed that he has a restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona, based on the diet, the True Food Kitchen . Just where I’m going at the end of the month! I hope to check it out.
If anyone in the Phoenix/Tucson area would like an in-person psychic counseling and healing session March 29th, please get in touch–I’ll be driving back from Phoenix to Santa Fe around the 31st.
The early Spring seems to require a great deal of physical effort: people have to do a lot to reach an objective, or remove what has been immovable, or make it through a change. This is a tougher time, and more muscle and persistence is needed this Spring to move ahead. A good time to “act as if” and you plow through the patchy circumstances.
Look for opportunity with people you already know, whom you are already in contact with, to help you on the next leg of your journey. In Spring, opportunity tends to be closer to people than they realize.
As Above, So Below: Much is emptied out of peoples’ personal and collective landscape this Spring, but it makes peoples’ time be filled with things that are headed for the garbage. Existing structures are deconstructing; bombshells are going off, the culmination of past conflicts.
Parting of the ways: Sometime in the middle of summer July-August, there will be more of a division among people in that many stop sharing a fate with others; many will feel it’s time to stop paying attention to the news, and focus actively on one’s own endeavors and world vision. In the next few months, so much will be let go of and no longer subscribed to.
Future infrastructure: The building blocks of the future our in our midst but not hewn, and there are lots of trial and error, competing possibilities that don’t add up to much. There’s some synchronization of alternative energies and new understandings in physics, enabling them to work together.
For entrepeneurs: Because innovation has such strong potential now, it’s better to work with–if you are an innovative or creative type–your own unique tools, skills and vision. It looks like the people who achieve success, or early success, have space around them where they’re not consulting on their direction a lot, or following others. All that matters is what you can see to do now–and what you have vim and vigor for.
Personal growth: If you acquired a negative view of yourself, its roots and source are likely to be revealed now. Just like you took steps to establish and cement self-judgment, there are steps to take to go another route, based on another relationship with yourself. This Spring provides the experiences, occurrences, circumstances and opportunities to take those steps to re-establish a new and better relationship with yourself, and forge another path forward.
From December 2009 winter solstice notes about 2010: “This Spring: There’s some huge change that is either imminent or obvious in Spring…or whatever huge change really does happen in 2010, it looks like it’s in the air then. It looks like people are moving full speed ahead with change in their lives… a lot of things have changed for a lot of people by the time it’s over.”
