How to enjoy life

How to enjoy life, a basic guide written especially for you.

www.nakedwildandfree.comBe grateful;

Gratitude is the biggest part of a life well lived. We need to be grateful for all the things we have now and stop living in a mind of lack or thinking when I am rich/have a bigger house/fall in love etc I will be happy and grateful.

When I wake up in the morning I am thankful I am alive, I am grateful I am breathing – how amazing are our lungs!. I am grateful for the warm bed and cosy blankets that have supported me all night, think of all the homeless people who last night slept outside in the cold. I am grateful for my feet and legs which take me to the bathroom, imagine how many amputees would give anything to walk again with ease!. I am grateful for my bladder that is has held my urine all night, think of all the folks who are incontinent. I am grateful for the awesome plumbing and toilet I am using, how miraculous that we have indoor toilets that actually flush our waste away. I am grateful for the hot water coming out of a tap, think of all those people who walk miles each day to collect water, or those who have to drink water from puddles and in contaminated rivers. I smile at myself in the mirror and am thankful I love myself, I am grateful for my hair, my face and my freckles that make me different from anyone else, how amazing that every single one of us is totally unique.

All of this gratitude and I haven’t even made it downstairs yet. So there is always something, right now you can be thankful for.

Look around you, what are you grateful for?

Start a gratitude journal and spend a few moments each day listing things you are grateful for. If you write 10 things a day that you are grateful for, that’s 70 things by the end of the week, 3,640 each year, if you did that for 20

years you would have 72,800 things to be grateful for!

Some days feel crappy, some days feel really hard, sometimes life doesn’t seem fair but for everyday you are alive, that is miraculous.

The fact you are born, are alive and are breathing means you are a miracle,

you have had a successful day because you got out of bed, your body is functioning and you are reading this!

Conscious Camp 2016

Feeling so grateful and full of love. I have just returned from Conscious camp.

First time camping at this amazing gathering of beautiful souls in Wales we had fun, dancing, bathing and swimming in the river, going to awesome workshops, attending yoga each morning at 8am, listening to inspiring talks, eating amazing vegan food and having a profound heart opening experience.

The compost loo’s which despite adding sawdust got pretty stinky after 4 days.

It was 4 days of bliss, being with like minded people, no alcohol, no smoking, no stinky perfume, just free, natural beings who smile. I could of easily lived there, the river was lovely but pretty cold, we bathed in it and washed our hair, had deep chats whilst fish swam by us. The vegan food was so tasty and it was lovely not to cook and not to worry what am I going to eat because I knew it was all lovely food. Stories and songs around the fire at night, chanting and a lovely way to make each single person feel special. We sang to each person “Ruby (or their name) we love you, deep down in our soul, Ruby we love you deep down in our soul, deep down, deep down, deep down in our soul” the feeling of love, friendship and gratitude was palpable. Not having to do anything you didn’t want and knowing you are provided for and cared for was a beautiful experience.

I didn’t miss facebook at all and felt less stressed and my back muscles didn’t ache at all. I didn’t sleep well at night, I was really cold despite a sleeping bag, blanket, pj’s, hat and onsie! But what I did love was waking up naturally to the birdsong and sound of the river, rather then squarking chickens, whinging dogs and traffic noises. I can’t wait to live in the countryside and breathe in the pure air and be surrounded by lush green fields.

STOP living in fear.

Stop living in fear.

Send out peace and love. Not just to one country but to all countries, not to one type of people but to all people, not to favour one religion but to all religions, not to who is right or wrong, not to who is poor or rich but to everyone no matter what their circumstances. There are many bad things happening everyday all over the planet, the media only seem to report on the ones they choose to, the ones that have a hidden agenda, we are all humans, we are all living in this world, not matter what colour our skin, no matter where in the world we live, no matter what language we speak, no matter how we die or what or who killed us, we all have families, mums, dads, brothers, sisters, children that will miss us. If everyone put down their weapons, if everyone woke up tomorrow and agreed to love and help each other, war wouldn’t exist. The greed, the governments and the elite few who want us to be puppets and hate, are the only ones gaining from these disasters and war.

FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real

A to Z of natural living. Letter B.

Hey lovely people, I thought it would be a great idea to do an A to Z of natural living, including remedies, ailments, healthy tips and idea, alternative therapies etc, I think this could be fun and I want you to feel free to add your own in the comments.

Today I bring you the letter B.

letter_B

Backache:

Backache affects so many people now, from sitting in offices most of the day to car journeys, sitting down a lot can increase the lack of moveable muscles in the back and the core is not properly supported. Not being aligned properly, having one leg shorter than the other, throwing you out of balance or an injury can cause back ache too. Sometimes stress and inflammation can make the problem worse.

Ageing:
Aging affects us all from the time we hit adulthood until we die, but we have a choice over how we age. I think aging is beautiful and so are the lines on someones face that map their lives to the world, but sometimes its nice to slow down the process a little. There are many things you can do without going to drastic lengths like botox or plastic surgery. I mean who seriously wants botulinum toxin pumped into their face, the warning on the box says ” may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening”, the main reactions that have been reported are itching, rash, red itchy welts,breathing difficulties. – nice, that will improve your glowing skin!

How to spot a sign from the universe

 

hippie-quotes

Have you heard people asking the universe for a sign?, do you wonder what its all about, do you know how to ‘see’ a sign from the universe? I truly believe in signs and that energies and vibrations can allign and they help us go on our right path, I quit my ‘real’ job after asking the universe for a sign, becuse even though the money was good, I didn’t feel fulfilled. That morning on my way to work (I was a resort ambassador) I really didn’t know what to do for the best so asked for a sign, after the briefing at our office we went out into pairs to walk around the town, there was a man with long grey hair, a bit shabby, shouting how Blackpool is the pit of despair, its full of whores and sinners, he intrigued me so much to the horror of my colleague I went over to talk to him (in full ambassador uniform) he stepped back away from me and was very wary, I asked why he thought Blackpool was so bad and where he lived, he was cagey at first ( I think the uniform put him off) and I said I meant him no harm and he wasn’t in trouble, I just wanted to talk to him. He opened up and we started having a chat, then he did a double blink, looked me up and down and said “you don’t belong in that uniform, what do you think your doing?, you know that your light shines from within, the lights on the front (illuminations) are giving false happiness, you know this town is trying to sell happiness masked as all the attractions and bright lights, you know this is wrong” (he was spot on) I thanks him and asked his name (my mind thinking it would be something profound like Ezekiel) he said it was Tony! I told him he was my sign from the universe and walked away, knowing right then that was the day I would quit.

21 ways to nourish your body and mind

Love this chart, I found it on Pinterest 

How to nourish your body and mind, the other things I would add are good food and gratitude <3

Studies show how nature heals us

When we get closer to nature—be it untouched wilderness or a backyard tree—we do our overstressed brains a favor.

This amazing article from National Geographic just confirms what my intuition has been telling me all these years, when you are surrounded by nature it has amazing benefits to your body and mind. Governments and institutions should take note of how beneficial planting more tress and keeping green spaces are.

Natural cures for depression without anti-depressants

Sometimes things happen in life which make you feel in a depressed state, this is completely natural and can happen to anyone, this does not mean you are clinically depressed, it just means right now, at this moment in time you feel low, such as:

Death of a loved one, friend, or acquaintance, health crises, financial woes, divorce or break-up, losing a job, underemployment, moving, children leaving for college or positive transitions laden with deep meaning, such as new jobs, weddings, births

Depression can effect anyone, no matter what age, gender or nationality. It’s a hard thing to describe unless you have suffered it yourself, it’s also a hard thing to understand.
