WARNING...This post is NOT for those who prefer to remain in fear and disempowerment!
Who amongst you are Vegan? Or....who of you out there prefers not to eat dead animal flesh...and embraces a plant-based diet? Hands up!
For those of you who have your hands up....good on ya! You do realise that not only have you radically changed your eating habits, but you have also embraced activism in a HUGE way!
What am I talking about?
Ok, so we just watched a docu on health...here's the link....watch it, you will be flabbergasted!! Then come back here and continue reading....don't worry, I'll wait for ya!
Listen...I'm tired, I've had a challenging day and I have a bit of a headache....BUT I'm sitting here at past one in the morning and I feel compelled to write about what I have just watched on Netflix (namely that documentary ^^^)
I was crying by the end....and not with frustration, or anger, but for JOY! Yes! Joy, because there are people in that docu who have turned their lives around by going Vegan!! And not in small ways either.......in HUGE great big earth-shattering ways for their health!!!
Are you a Witch?
Hands up if you're Witchy and proud!! So, being a Witch.....do you LOVE the planet? Do you....LOVE animals? Do you...abhor being drip-fed dogma? Do you cast a sideways look at huge multi-national-billion pound corrupt industries (if not...why not?!!) Do you enjoy taking responsibility for your own health (as opposed to putting it in the grubby hands of big pharma)? Do you care about what we are teaching our kids about the world? BIG questions....and your answers are no smaller! And I have to ask....if it's a resounding YES! to all those questions and you're not NOT eating animals......why?
As Witches, it is 100% our responsibility (in my very own, possibly radical opinion) to take this life and give it everything we've got! And that includes our health!!
I knew from a young age that if someone is ill (dis-ease), then feeding them a load of pills will not actually cure anything, it just masks the problem and makes the person reliant on that medication! And, before you say 'but'....I am speaking from experience! From being prescribed nasal steroid sprays for rhinitis, asthma inhalers, anti-depressants, countless anti-biotics for chest and other infections, muscle relaxants for acute neuralgia pain in my shoulder and arm....to coal tar cream for psoriasis, pain killers for a dislocated knee and torn meniscus, iron pills for after I had a c-section and lost waay too much blood....and that's not including the sciatica I had from childhood....which I never took to the docs!
I'm sure you can add to the list with your own list....but the list is not the point. What is the point is that 1. not one doctor EVER asked me what the ROOT of the problem was (they don't ask!) OR 2. what my diet was like? (they don't discuss nutrition in any REAL way!) What (and how) we eat is THE most important thing we can do for our health.
I no longer have any health issues and I've only been plant-based since late 2012! I have a little dry scalp left over from the gaping, sore psoriasis I once had on my head and other places and I am going through the Change (however I can honestly say I've embraced it, hard as that is sometimes, using crystals when things get a bit fraught!), but all those ailments which plagued me for years have gone! Eating plant-based is a HUGE factor in this, but then so is mindset, living in a different way (for example NO CHAIRS in our home or sleeping on an alternative matress on the floor), using Sound to keep health optimal, doing the things which FIRE YOU UP! Which is so very important for your wellbeing!!
If you'd like some ideas for food....yes, we ALL love food! Then our site is perfect for recipes - you will need two seconds to sign up, but the food is worth it!! ;)
If you want to chat about starting with plant-based eating, email us or find us on facebook :) xxx
Be fearless, stay Witchy! ;)
It's been a long journey for both myself and Ian - since childhood!! We are here now and we will be talking about these HUGE subjects and how to navigate through them in our BIG course which we are hopeful will be ready later this year!!! :)
If you prefer something a little gentler, then our first two courses in Witchcraft (Embrace Your Inner Witch & Witchcraft For The Curious Novice) are what you need if you've ever wanted to learn about Witchcraft but kept this desire hidden!
If you can't afford those at the moment, then we also have a couple of highly valuable FREE offerings for you too! Check out our lessons on Grounding & Energy-work...you have nothing to lose except doubt, fear and disempowerment! ;)
