Hunters Full Moon October 27, 2015

Dark Cat copia

If you’re prone to tilt your head and howl at the moon, like the great hunters the coyotes, October 27 will be the only night this month when the moon will be visible in the sky all night long. Just be mindful of the neighbors when you howl!

All you Moon Lovers Mark your calendars because this is the last Supermoon of the year! It is also known as a sanguine or “blood” moon, the term “Hunters Moon” is used traditionally to refer to a full moon that appears during the month of October. This full Moon is also called the Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.

To the Native Americans full moons were a way to keep track of the seasons and make appropriate preparations for survival. Besides, with falling leaves and the fattening of wild game, also preparing for winter, who could argue that this month’s moon signaled a good time to go hunting. Hunter’s Moon the name for the full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon nearest the September autumnal equinox. That’s why October’s moon bears the name Hunter’s Moon.

The Hunters Full Moon is also called the Shedding Moon, Blood Moon, or the Falling Leaf Moon. Coming right before Samhain/Halloween, it is a time when the nights are crisp and clear, and you can sense a change in the energy around you. Halloween also marks the beginning of the Pagan New Year.

This is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit world are at its thinnest. Use this time for spiritual growth. If there is a deceased ancestor you wish to contact, this is a great month to do it. Throughout October work on your spiritual self, and pay attention to messages you get in your dreams. Plan a ritual to remember those who have passed from this world, and be sure to make an offering to them.

As for Halloween night the moon will add mystery to the night..

The full moon is always a good time to pray, have ceremonies, and be reminded of the continuation of life. Enjoy my friends.

Twelve Steps to Healthy Eating

1. Eat lots of cooked vegetables including green leafy vegetables.

2. Eat mostly cooked and warm foods where possible (with occasional salads). Use foods prepared within 24 hours when possible.

3. Eat meals on a regular schedule where possible.

4. Eat fruit on occasion only and separate from meals when possible. Slightly more fruit in the warmer months and very little in the colder months.

5. Gradually cut back on dairy or cut it out entirely. Try to limit dairy (eventually) to occasional yogurt or kefir from a natural food store. (Unhomgenized milk is preferable when used.)

6. Eat miso soup several times per week and include the occasional use of other traditionally fermented dishes.

7. Gradually eliminate foods with additives, preservatives, caffeinated products, coloring, MSG/hydrolyzed proteins, artificial sweeteners (aspartame, neotame, acesulfame-k, sucralose, etc.), and chemical names in the ingredient list that you are not sure of. Shopping regularly at a natural foods store will make it much easier to find such products. The occasional “treat” can be replaced with healthier “treats” from a natural food store.

8. Determine with some experimentation what balance of vegetables and sea vegetables, whole grains, fish/fowl, legumes, fruits, nuts, seeds, juices, herbal teas/coffee substitutes/spring water, and treats/snacks works best for you. You may decide to regularly take a concentrated food supplement or individual supplements (e.g., magnesium, calcium, B Vitamins) until your health and nutrition plan improves. Use health food store natural supplements without additives sweeteners, fillers, etc.

9. Shop for foods at a natural food store and wherever possible, purchase organic foods. If you need to, purchase staple foods via mail-order outlets.

10. Purchase natural foods cookbooks to help you with cooking techniques and recipes. Locate ethnic and other restaurants with healthy foods so you can give yourself a break from time to time.

11. Food cravings can be handled best by using holistic healing tools such as taking classes in yoga, meditation, moderate exercise, supplements and using a Twelve Stop Program (e.g., Overeater’s Anonymous) for addictions. Getting small, regular amounts of protein at meals (e.g., legumes, fish, tofu, chicken, turkey, etc.) can help reduce sugar and other cravings.

12. When cooking and eating (including eating at restaurants) try to have a spirit of love and joy in your heart and serenity in your mind. Of course, this isn’t always possible; so just do the best you can.

Mother Natures Timing on Hydration

With the hot summer upon us it is time to make sure that your body is getting sufficient water/hydration. Without water your body cannot function and many people perish in the heat because they believe that they are getting enough water through soda pop, coffee or tea. Not true, you need pure water with minerals to completely hydrate your body. In fact soda pop, coffee or tea can cause a leaching of minerals from the body.

A little known fact for most people is that water alone is not sufficient for complete hydration of your body! It is minerals that keep your body regulated. During high heat minerals are exiting your body at a rapid rate. Mother Nature has always known this and that is why high volume water fruits ripen in the hot summer months. The water in these fruits contains precious minerals and it is pertinent to eat as much of these luscious fruits as possible during the summer.

Watermelon is one of the richest sources of mineral water available along with its positive effect on regulating constipation. Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day than a cold slice of watermelon.

Here is a list of summer fruits in alphabetical order:
• Apricots
• Asian Pears
• Blackberries
• Cantaloupe
• Casaba Melon
• Cherries
• Crenshaw Melon
• Currants
• Figs
• Gooseberries
• Grapes
• Guava
• Honeydew Melon
• Huckleberries
• Lychee Nut
• Mangoes
• Nectarines
• Papayas
• Peaches
• Plums
• Raspberries
• Strawberries
• Watermelon

Consume as much as these as you desire during the hot summer months and you may find that you are shedding weight as well, because of their low fat and high water and fiber content.

Now let us see what Mother Nature has provided in summer vegetables that once again contain high volumes of natural mineral water.

• Arugula
• Avocados
• Beans, Green
• Beans
• Beets
• Collards
• Corn
• Cucumber
• Eggplant
• Garlic
• Kohlrabi
• Mushrooms
• Okra
• Onions
• Peas, Sugar, Snap
• Peppers
• Potatoes
• Shallots
• Squash, Summer
• Swiss chard
• Tomatoes
• Zucchini

These vegetables are high in calcium and magnesium which help regulate the heat in your body. Cooking diminishes the minerals in these vegetables, eat as many raw as possible and lightly steam the others to maintain as much minerals as possible.

Have you ever found yourself experiencing more muscle pain during the hot weather? It could be coming from Dehydration. Dehydration is often a source of muscle pain. Along with Mother Nature’s natural water supply of fresh fruits and vegetables, I recommend you drink purified water mixed with Mineral Water 50/50. This will replace the minerals that are leaving your body continuously. The real key to hydration is drinking beyond your thirst.

Take advantage of the gifts of Mother Nature and you will go through this summer feeling better than you ever have before!
