Christmas At Rawprincess Studio

A business meeting with Laura Fox is like none other you can possibly imagine. She did a powerful cord cutting impromptu ceremony on me complete with razor sharp insights; she immediately saw the precariousness of my entire home's feng shui and facilitated a freakin' magic carpet ride (or was it a space ship?) with me and co-Best of Raw peeps before we even set our intentions for Best of Raw 2011!!! *squeeee* and this has been life changing for me. My home is halfway transformed! PS I'm the go-to girl for your business sponsorship of this year's shenanigans!
 “Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more ...and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
- Mark Victor Hansen

Introducing my NEW meetup group! Weekly juicy bliss and monthly overnights. Follow and fan Andy Williams with me the Year of Juice!!! Rawprincess Studio is a trigger-free zone. Read more PDX friends! :-)

As I create sacred space here in the stillness at Rawprincess Studio I find the clutter is emerging from deeper and deeper layers. As I release all that is not my soul's calling and willingly release mistaken identities and beliefs, my own power from deep inside is literally being pulled up and out. Until I am turning myself inside out. I have suspended yoga slings called Om Gyms here. I have space to do yoga. We have trees and a trail to Washington Park and on into Forest Park. We are doing a monthly sleepover with greeeeen juice and smoothies. This is a food-free zone for 2012. The only chewable things here are and will be chlorella tablets and bee pollen. It is a trigger-free space, safe for everyone who is stepping outside of emotional and addictive eating. It is a safe place to drop down to the floor and stop all the rushing around and avoidance. Listening Turns is a process I use along with Listening Hands: both non-agenda, non-invasive ... Reiki is here, the "Ray" as well as in-depth healing arts menu. I've started Rawprincess Studio as a meetup because I am enjoying surrounding myself with believing mirrors for eachother now. The fans of Andy Williams' Year of Juice will gather here and juice all year together. Weekly juicing, energy yoga, self-body reflexology and astrology self-awareness body readings will all be luxuriously utilized on the mats of Rawprincess Studio beside the large oak trees of SW Market Street just where it has become Market Street from SW 14th. Recap: Weekly juice support and listening turns. (Dates TBA) Monthly sleepovers with yoga, juice, body-rollers / back care.

Very Merriest of holidays to all of you with love from Zeke, Cindy & Sophie at Rawprincess Studio in Portland 2011!
Deck the halls with red bell peppers ... and a carnation or two.
today's lovely droplets fm cindy :-)
For today:
Have a blissed, blessed holiday season -- wishing everyone lots of love with family and friends. Thanks for your thoughtful wishes here!

Just for Today: In a very positive and pro-recovery way, I am being called to do a liquids only protocol.

hot tea
apple juice with Colon Care
At least 1 qt of green juice
hempseed latte

I am grateful I had time to really just hang out for solstice last night.
I am grateful I'm going to pick up my two youngest children in an hour or so.
I am grateful I got my tax refund so I have rent for Jan as well as Dec.
I am grateful that I continue to remove more clutter from here and make sacred space for living.
I am grateful that I AM ENROLLED in PSU for winter term.
I am grateful that even though I have no idea yet what classes or what schedule that will be, I am confident if it is meant to be that I will be able to work it out with my massage job and things will work out just right for both my income, my studies and my family.
I am grateful that I notice how terrifying it felt to have money in my account yesterday and how I had to really just be still with it and receive.

God/dess I ask for your help and guidance with my budget and desire to fix up Rawprincess Studio both for my children to hang out and also to take the next most key steps to create a retreat-like setting here which will be of service and generate income.

Please help me soothe and take care of my digestion today and to step in sync with nature's rhythms. Help me to tap into my own inner harmony and to focus on self-care. I am enjoying finding the right place to get a check-up now. I am enjoying new running shoes and fresh work pants now. I am enjoying time with my children and helping to provide the optimal healthy loving space for them over these next few days now. I am enjoying a balance between structure and limits for them and playfulness and whimsy now.

I thank you Higher Power that much of the grief of letting go of Mr M seems to be processed today. The interesting awarenesses and willingness to awaken and become self-empowered are returning. I am grateful that I am willing to open my  mind to the purity of spirit I know I must have in order to be an effective healer. I am grateful I am forgiven for where I may have been confused. In the confusion I always wanted what was right. I never meant to harm myself. I never meant to lose my own soul. I've always meant to live within a deep sense of devotion and commitment to the Beloved.

I am grateful that the whole holistic picture of my offerings is coming into focus now.

Thank you so much Universe for the truly miraculous timing that I do have money for this weekend. Even though I KNOW the focus isn't to be money. Guide me to serenity and peace that I may enjoy this beautiful time. Guide me to make the best choices possible for me and my kids this weekend.

My dearest lovelies and angels;

Please reply directly to me. Do not hit "reply all" for there is a blind-copy list here today as well.

cindy<3 <3 <3

I will post the earlier post last: 

As I pitch out the useless my new owner slipped and drifted off my iceberg.
As I take this baby finger and scratch through the hole in the avalanche I'm pinned in ...
and reach over and scratch at the mountain which contains you, too ...I see a pinky reaching out from the mountain. It is yours.You reach over to me. To free me from my prison.Perhaps, not so long from now I will see your face.And we will dance on the beach, hair flying in the breeze. Seagulls screaming like sirens announcing our return.:-)
I am grateful I see that I am tethered to my computer and to my bowls of salad.
I am grateful for the spark of life which compels me to break free of anything which blinds me.
I am grateful for the courage to live this day without the collar of an inappropriate Man... not the One I am meant to serve.
I am grateful, so grateful, for the opportunity to live my life outloud. I love who I am. I love who I am becoming. I love this planet, its creatures and Mary Oliver!
I am grateful I ate the cabbage and carrots and cashews with dehydrated mushrooms and olive oil, sea salt ... I am grateful I noticed the way I wolfed this down and wondered if I will ever be cured of this hunger.
I am grateful for hope and the walk to Sacajawea tonight, and to the store with a friend, having not walked up there in months. Something had shut me down, perhaps that spell is now broken and I will be whole again.
My broken doll-self having reunited her pieces ... glued sutures were blended into tightly smoothed flesh.
I am grateful I did the dishes and I am grateful i recognize what a feral cat I have become.
I am grateful I have toes that long for luxury beneath my feet. Carpets, cushions, lighting and candles, chocolate elixirs with chaga is in my near future.
And I am grateful that the top of the list is "how do I want to make my money" that is the only really job I have saith Abraham, what do I want.
I am grateful Galen will discuss with me to be clear on all levels of engaging.

I am grateful that I realize MO is there and that if all else fails, If I never find the holistic Master I seek that he is there and may truly be the one.
But I am grateful that I have much work to do. I am grateful that I am to BE what I seek first.
I am grateful for Joy and all that she has managed to give me over the years even with how little we actually see one another. People are like that. A moment can be like eternal gold.
I am grateful I realize the importance to not fade away from this list. To keep going no matter how the feral cat in me wishes to hiss and retreat in fear. :-)
I am grateful I "came out" on facebook.

Hi everyone.

qt water
large diluted apple juice with psyllium
cup of yerba mate
plan: to go out and get some ripe banana and/or agave for my fixin's i have here. OR to try making the smoothie with what I already have here it might be taste enough I don't know.

I am grateful Mr A. released me last night ... even though it was painful and is confusing to be my own free agent, it really does make more sense. He apologized for being so selfish from long distance ...

Plan: green smoothie or a carrot soup.
a cacao elixir

I like this photo of my morning journal spot back in the day.
I am grateful for all the friends coming out of the woodwork
I am grateful and interested in how being the most open honest and authentic (not so much in a sloppy way, just in a concise way) brings so much more comments, attention and inquiries than "trying hard" ever did in the past.
I am grateful for this day to rest my hands ...
I am grateful for the sun may I get out in it.

god/dess dont know what PSU's lack of organization is or the ding dong girl at the desk I spoke with did with my application last week ... :( wow!!!!! It completely disappeared??? Well, glad I checked. Editors note: they found it and I am actively enrolled ... :-)

Probably have to walk down there again which is God's' way of saying it's good for me. I'm only a $100 away from having all the rent together for Dec. Cool.

Day 1 of Rawprincess Studio's Moon in Virgo 30-day Fitness Challenge walking along Oceanside Harbor with Mom. 

Thanksgiving at the Thomas C Chavez and Gabrielle Chavez's Grace Gardens in Oregon City.

Thanksgiving Weekend:

My situation was Mr A is not here and my children were at their dad's but I went to my raw vegan family dinner out at an organic farm at a home. It was a potluck style but I will list what I made and what I can remember. I actually made a video of it which you are more than welcome to view!

I made what I called "Apple Purity Bread Pudding"

A base of coconut cream folded into a Divine Organics Thai Coconut Sugar with Vanilla Cream Stevia (Sweetleaf brand) which was folded into some lightly blended dates and walnuts with whole walnut pieces, large coconut shavings, coconut oil, a vanilla pod (scraped the inside seeds out to use just the inner pod),and sea salt to taste. Into that I'd also placed a royal jelly / ginseng powder and lucuma powder.

I had prepared at the side, a large bowl of sliced apples which I'd mixed with fresh lemon juice and raw cinnamon powder. In that I'd placed an accent of goji berries which soon plumped up nice from the lemon juice. A little vanilla and just a dash of sea salt as well.

I then folded the first crumble mix into the apples and lightly pressed it all into a pyrex rectangular dish.  Refrigerated then cut into squares and served after drizzling the top with more coconut sugar and coconut oil and cinnamon. More walnuts could be used.

Very rich.

At the dinner there were "BBQ" kale chips, two kinds of kale salad, Nut Love w/BBQ sauce (yes, a take off of meat loaf :-)) collard wraps, cranberry swirl, portobello mushroom "gravy" (made by marinating portobellos first in olive oil and sea salt, then chopping them and dehydrating then blending half of them into water for an amazing gravy you can't tell is raw.) There was greens from the organic farm so they were very green and various textures, some wild weeds, some leafy. Much more. I have a YouTube on that here. The mashed potatos were delicious--made of blending cauliflour with cashews, olive oil and sea salt.

Also the name "Akita" should have really been Edith.

Other desserts were pumpkin chocolate squares, chocolate uncake, and more.

"On the road to fame, don't step on children." I say as I pan the group with the camera and almost trip over the young ones. Ha ha.

We had dinner and then the lady of the house who is also a minister of the church, Gabriel Chavez has a tradition of the walk on Thanksgiving Day. (It's called Christ the Healer (CtH) but is extremely progressive and eclectic--under the umbrella of the UCC churches which have done tons for example for GLBTQ support.) She led a two mile walk through the town or Oregon City which felt GREAT to go do! It was up and down hills with a great view of the river (Willamette?? I should know that.)

Afterward we all went back and I played guitar and sang, making up lyrics as I went about the apples and lemon juice and goji berries in my dessert. :-) It felt good to play for people. With my lifecoach it's come up that music is actually my primary purpose, and sharing it is really the most important gift to my tribes. ... so that was very cool since I haven't played in public since the open mikes in Minneapolis with (former) Master there.

I received a little Thai massage there in the middle of everything and also gave some bodywork to a friend in the midst of everyone and his pain completely vanished, plus I saw that it was his Gallbladder meridian which was screaming out at him. :-) Thomas C Chavez, author of Body Electronics (and Gabriel, the minister's husband) also confirmed the GB spots.

Then we had a traditional Durian opening. And if anyone wanted water it was spring water on the deck and you had to step outside for your water. There was an outdoor heat source there so it was really nice.

I filmed a bunch and then left, giving some neighbors a ride home. It was a beautiful dinner.

The next day I got my son for the day and we relaxed. My daughter went to a sleepover at a friends instead so I didn't see her this time. They will both be with  me for quite a few days including Christmas.

In joy~and~bliss being His

Refritos with "the works" including chickweed & avo, cashew sour cream, and Eric It's Alive! Green Smoothie Crackers.

Dinner is served.
Cindy's Apple Purity, Bishop's Vanilla Bean, Rose Cacao by Lulu (sp?)

Next Day: Nacho Boat Refritos on "Chips" for leftovers pleases even the most discerning of teenagers.

Refritos unFrijoles
sunflower seeds
favorite salsa

Soak sunflower seeds in water for at least two hours.
Blend with cumin and coriander and your favorite salsa.

This recipe was graciously texted to me the day a friend was coming over for dinner by Coach Cher Til! I want you to know that her ebook is ONLY filled with the most delicious and simplest of recipes. I think she prides herself in five ingredients or less. 

Her bean dip (here, above) was very popular at the hip rawkin' greeeen juice party which followed the Third Annual International Juice Feast Day in Seattle in September. Aw shucks where's that cool vid with me dancing and massaging the Raw Brah's ... Anyways her recipes are available here.

What ended up happening was, I ended up finding the "It's Alive" seeds here in Portland which are already soaked and dehydrated with spicy herbs added. I used those and a little bit of a garbanzo raw miso and it was delicious. I also blended with salsa as Cher said to.

Cashew Sour Cream

Soak cashews in water. Drain and rinse.

Blend in enough water to make sour cream texture with olive oil, sea salt and lemon juice, to taste.

Notes Fm A Foxhole

the yerba mate tea
some bites of "cookie dough" (coconut-base w/ walnut & date)
bites of carrot
more tea
coconut water
Plan: to go out and have some dinner at People's Food Coop

I am grateful Mr M put the tags in the mail this a.m.
I am grateful I've pitched out several boxes of decades of saved greeting cards I've received.
I'm grateful that LE sort of veered away from me, and something doesn't feel 100% honest about what he was wanting. I think he wanted a client, not a project. Which would have been something to consider if he had been honest. The fact that he withheld the info lets me know I don't want to pursue, although I LOVE his photos! Dang, this or something better.
(I am grateful that since this writing LE and I have gotten clear and very hot photo shoot is in my future! One of his models has over 7 million hits on her website ...)
I am grateful I posted truth on my adult profile about my getting herpes at age 14 and that it's in remission for decades now, but that way it is up and I can forget about it.
I am grateful again, for the coaching session Tuesday and the reminder about the energy  nature of feminine. The egg waits. Things come to me. Sort of the opposite of marketing.

God/dess my hand hurts, I'm walking the line between doing things I'm attracted to and slight pushing to take care of errands I most want done like mailing the IRS return.
I am grateful for Mr A's phone calls each day.
I am grateful also putting on my profile about what M did this summer--without naming his name--and that I was open about it.
I am grateful for realizing that Michael is longterm and that he requires some TLC in some areas which I care about but don't have time or patience for.
But I'm grateful he is there for me
I am grateful Cody is going to take this bed out of here and hoping he can help with t he attic if he is skilled. I also need the Om Gym's hung so an O-ring from the ceiling and it needs to be done very skillfully. There is wiring in the ceiling.
I am grateful for the idea to ask N. a local rigger / artist for advice regarding that.
i am grateful that I saw through the first date's calling people "predators" at a gathering when I know darn well they are just full of life force and going after what th ey want shamelessly which I love about these so-called "predators" said date spoke of. And I am grateful I questioned his definition warmly. ...
Yay, H. is going to Africa.
I am grateful I put "no 420 please" on my FB page
I am grateful I am abou to put "no 420 please" on my FL page.
I am grateful I had dinner at home just now instead of out.
I am grateful I found apost office I can walk to right now.
I am grateful I can get more errands done tomorrow. I know I love staying home when I can ...

 Park Blocks With a friend

St Francis of Assisi Prayer
Lord, make me a channel of thy peace --
that where there is hatred, I may bring love --
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness --
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony --
that where there is error, I may bring truth --
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith --
that where there is despair, I may bring hope --
that where there are shadows, I may bring light --
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted --
to understand, than to be understood -- to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds. It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life. Amen.

--St. Francis of Assisi, 1181-1226
