Pushing Through Resistance

Every time we decide to make a big change in our lives or start something brand new, our ego self shows us resistance in the forms of procrastination, fear of starting, making up excuses, and so on. Why does this always happen? We then have the choice to either listen to that little voice inside our heads (I know you know what I’m talking about) or saying, Nope! That voice is not real and I’m not going to listen. Not today!

Moments like these show up so frequently out of fear because realistically, we have to give up so much in order to begin a new way of being or thinking. Mentally, we must set up boundaries within ourselves and with our friends, family, and coworkers. In order to become a positive thinker, we have to give up negative thought patterns and self deprecating behaviors. It is not easy.

Big changes and even smaller changes and shifts happen because we choose them, like starting a Keto-diet, or they are out of our control, like needing to move across country for work or losing our job. Change occurs all the time and it’s so important to talk about because as we enter the Fall season, many changes take place in our lives. Kids go away to school or begin Kindergarten, the energy of life shifts from growth into harvest and storing up reserves for the winter.

We all have moments of resistance ( I think we all do) when we are unconsciously moving through life and allowing things to happen to us. But, when I am conscious about what is happening in my environment I question, why is this happening for me? I understand now that my body requires more rest than I allow. I force myself to slow down. Consciously tuning in to how your body feels is a great way of flowing with the currents of resistance instead of against those currents because this energy is important to flow in congruence. There’s valuable information in why we are blocking or creating friction instead of easing into the unsteadiness or vulnerability of our circumstances.

So for the next few months I will keep pushing and I hope you will too.

Thank you for reading and I’ll talk to you soon.

Chocolate Tart

Easy Paleo Vegan Chocolate Tart

Summer Recipe Perfect for the 4th of JULY cookout!

The hot summer deters me from turning on my oven. Being a SF/DF/GF girl (95% of the time), I enjoy scouting perfect cold recipes that take are quick and easy to make. Here it is my friends. I found this on Pinterest as a Key Lime Pie and I changed up the ingredients, screwed it up by using kiwi one time, and then finally got it right. Other options for the filling could be altered to your tastes or whatever is in season, like strawberry “cream”, mango, peach, or peanut butter/chocolate/banana combo. Play around!! The best part about the pie is that it’s healthy, tasty, and fast to make for a last minute BBQ!

Everybody, have fun & stay safe!

The Crust:

12 dates

1/2 cup pecans

1/2 cup slivered almonds

1 cup ground flax seeds

1 cup unsweetened coconut

The Filling

2 cans of full fat coconut milk (scoop only the fatty part that collects at the top. If it’s all incorporated together and has not separated, use only 1 full can)

2 avocados

4 tbls raw cacao powder

1/4 cup maple syrup

garnish with raw cacao nibs and unsweetened coconut flakes


Put all ingredients for the crust in a food processor until all of the ingredients are like a fine and evenly processed. Using your fingers or the back of a measuring cup, press it evenly into a pie pan.

Put all the filling ingredients into a blender. Then fill the pie. Top it with some garnish, or leave it clean. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. And then nosh until your hearts content! Enjoy.
