If you’re getting over a trauma, sugar addiction or heartbreak, one of the best things you can do is to clear clutter.
Even your health can suffer if you become a pack rat.
But when you clear clutter, you can get:
Music, as you know, can calm you down, help you tune in, and invigorate you.
In short, music is tremendously healing
Indeed, music can and should be a vital part of your journey to health and wellness.
For my part, after my mother died, listening to lots of music really helped me to break through my grief, shock, PTSD, despair, anxiety, turmoil, etc.
Today’s Woo-Hoo, Feel-Good Tune — a feature I revived yesterday on my Facebook fan page after my much-needed healing hiatus — is the awesome “Bliss of Healing,” from the Pure Heart Ensemble.
As you’ll find, this melody is very, very soothing and healing. Pass it on.
And join us on my Facebook fan page for more great Woo-Hoo, Feel-Good tunes
Awesome Update: Please note that Yummiloo, a TV show that will promote healthy eating to kids, has been funded! This is my post, which I hope, helped.
Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if millions of preschool-aged-children across the U.S. could watch a clever, creative TV show, which encouraged them to eat healthy foods? The time is finally here! This is your chance to make a BIG difference.
“Yummiloo,” an animated food-adventure TV show for preschoolers, is in the works. Based on the award-winning app, “Rainbow Power,” the TV show, “Yummiloo,” focuses on eating well.
But the television show’s creators—award-winning, highly acclaimed TV and film veterans—need our financial support now to fund their pilot. You need to act fast though. Yummiloo’s Kickstarter campaign ends June 9.
So what’s “Yummiloo” about? Just imagine if Willy Wonka’s Land of Pure Imagination were filled with irresistible characters, who enjoy healthy food instead of candy!
Note from Connie: Today, it’s my pleasuret to present a guest post from my colleague Yuri Elkaim, author of the new book, The All-Day Energy Diet.
Join Yuri and me tomorrow, when he joins my Gab with the Gurus Show to tell you how to get more consistent, steady energy. Remember, as with all of my shows, you can listen live or later.
If you’re tired most of the time, then it means your body is crying for help. Low energy is a warning sign that something inside your body isn’t quite right.
Considering the amount of sickness and “overweightness” that has now engulfed our world, it’s no surprise that more and more, people are feeling exhausted.
What’s important for you to know is that when you improve your energy, you improve your health.
The most common question I get asked is, “Yuri, what’s the #1 thing I can do have more energy?”
Thankfully, the answer to that question is easy to answer. And it has nothing to do with shots of espresso or sugar-filled treats.
The secret to fatigue-proofing your body (and raising your overall level of health) boils down to optimizing what’s going on inside your body.
Each of us is at war, and we don’t even know it. The private war we each wage is a daily assault on our body by acid-forming foods such as alcohol, animal products, and refined sugars, as well as by bacteria, virus, fungus, yeasts, and molds.
We have entered what might be referred to as critical mass when it comes to this onslaught being waged against us by stronger and stronger killer bugs and poorer and poorer food choices.
Our immune systems are becoming weaker and over-taxed in this war. Even the medical profession’s first line of defense, the antibiotic, is becoming less and less effective against resistant new strains being created daily as the bacteria mutate.
Since Louis Pasteur discovered the germ theory of disease stating that germs are the cause of disease, time has corrected him. Even Dr. Pasteur himself noted in his dying words: “The germ is nothing, the environment is everything.”
The environment referred to in Dr. Pasteur’s statement is known as our biological terrain and refers to the health of our “internal” environment.
A major determinant of our internal health is the acid-alkaline balance within many of our body’s fluids, namely our blood.
Our blood is alkaline by design and acid by function – meaning that it produces acid as a function of metabolism. Maintaining proper alkalinity is therefore essential for life, health, and vitality.
Under ideal alkaline conditions, the red blood cells (RBCs) within our blood are able to deliver energy-producing oxygen to our cells. However, an imbalance of alkalinity creates a condition whereby our RBCs begin to clump together, making it more difficult for them to reach their ultimate destination and drop off that much needed oxygen to our cells.
And if your blood is sluggish, you will be, too.
Leading biochemists and medical physiologists have recognized pH (or the acid-alkaline balance) as the most important aspect of a healthy (and energized) body. They have long known that the maintenance of an alkaline pH in the tissues and cells is critical to our health.
For instance, Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize recipient, was the first to show that cancer cells cannot grow in alkaline environments.
Unfortunately, for most people, current lifestyle habits have created highly acidic bodies. The standard western diet is characterized by an overindulgence of all types of foods and drinks that disrupt our blood’s ideal pH balance. As a result, we feel less than ideal as we go through our days.
So how can you make your body (your blood really) more alkaline to stay healthy and energetic? Here are a few simple steps you can take immediately:
Apply these simple steps and you’ll be well on your way to having more energy from the time you wake up until you call it a day.
Here’a one quick recipe to help you on your way:
Makes 2 servings
3 cups sprouts (broccoli sprouts, alfalfa, lentils, etc.) 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Splash of lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Combine sprouts and tomatoes in a bowl.
Whisk all other ingredients together. Combine vinaigrette with sprout mixture and serve.

Are you going through a personal or family crisis?
Are you plagued by constant physical pain?
Are you feeling emotionally distraught or downright discouraged due to a breakup or divorce?
Are you watching a loved one suffer agonizing emotional or physical pain due to heart disease, cancer or Alzheimer’s disease?
Or are you surrounded by family members, who, because of their own emotional or physical pain, are saying angry, venomous things to you?
If you’re going through a challenging situation such as one of those cited above (or something else), I strongly recommend that you
buy the latest book, Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting, from the inspirational Dr. Wayne Dyer.
Dr. Dyer is, of course, an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. He’s also the author of more than 30 books, and he has created numerous audio programs and videos and appeared on thousands of television and radio shows.
His new book, Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting, is truly life changing.
I also recommend that you get the new, I AM Wishes Fulfilled Meditation, that Dr. Dyer and James F. Twyman have created. I can’t wait to receive it. I’m sure it will be miraculous.
If you can, I also recommend that you catch the remarkable Dr. Dyer in a city near you. I’ve heard him several times — so powerful!
