I just returned from the Rocky Mountains on a family vacation. The mountains, and any nature setting really, helps re-set the mind & body. We needed that! On our travels, I brought along our “Bullet Proof coffee kit” and “First Thing in the Morning Warm Salt Water” and now have lots of inquires as to what’s up with this coffee & salt??!!
My wife and I had our first Bullet Proof coffee about 3 months ago and well… we haven’t stopped. It’s gotten to the point that when put in front of a regular or even specialty coffee, we end up thinking, “boy….I wish this was a bullet proof“. The affects of BP coffee are different for everyone. Some hate the taste/texture & won’t drink it, some love it right away. I love the tangible positive impact of the high quality fats on my brain & body function, without any coffee jitters!! Because of these fuelling fats, this drink is truly a meal, not just a beverage. I find a BP coffee satisfies my appetite for hours and gives me great energy, clarity and a happy gut! Click here for the official Bullet Proof website & recipe. Here’s the recipe I use:
BULLET PROOF COFFEE RECIPE ☕️
-brew coffee as you normally would (I grind my own Light Roast locally roasted beans and then brew in a French Press – so easy!!)
-1 tsp MCT oil (this is Medium Chain Triglycerides of coconut oil sometimes called “Brain Octane”)
-1 tbsp grass fed butter (you can use butter or ghee – I like ghee because it lasts longer, easier to travel with & not as messy to store)
Add all ingredients to a wide mouth mason jar & blend with hand emulsifier OR blend ingredients in a small blender. MUST be blended at high speed… can’t just be stirred.
OPTIONAL ADD INS: I always add the following:
-Good pinch of quality Himalayan salt or any quality sea salt
-Dr. Axe powdered multi-collagen (or any grass fed collagen powder)
You could also try organic vanilla or chocolate or anything else you’d like to experiment with!!
For Full Size French Press (For two people – makes 2 large mugs):
-2 tsp MCT oil
-2 tbsp grass fed ghee or butter
-2 pinches of good coarse salt
-dash of cinnimon & a full scoop of collagen powder
WARM SALT WATER FIRST THING IN THE MORNING
Started this weeks ago and love it. Use Himalayan salt or any quality sea salt (not table salt!!). Really feel the benefit in my mind and body. When you first wake, our bodies naturally produce cortisol. Salt is known to reduce cortisol and adrenaline, two dangerous stress hormones. Salt water is also said to balance blood sugar, keep your bones strong, regulate your metabolism, boost your immune system, and calm the nervous system! Click link to read more
Do you have a goal? Here’s a tip on what to do with it… TAKE 3 SIMPLE ACTIONS! And taking action on your goals 🥅 is easier than you’d ever imagine. Read below for tips..
✏️ IMPORTANT LIVE CLASS BULLETIN
Kiwanis LIVE CLASSES have ended effective immediately. I send deep thanks to the Kiwanis Community Centre in Sarnia for their incredible hospitality & space to host my classes. STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE LIVE CLASS LOCATIONS & WORKSHOPS.
TAKING ACTION ON YOUR GOALS. Answer the following questions in your journal:
- What is your goal clearly defined?
- Why do you want to achieve it?
- What do you want to FEEL once you have achieved this goal? (use specific feeling emotions like “confident, at ease, relieved, content, joyful, successful, happy, proud etc…”)
Now that you’ve realized what you want is actually a FEELING, spend a couple minutes after your daily meditation to do what I call CREATION MEDITATION.
CREATION MEDITATION: With eyes closed, visualize a specific scenario of you having already obtained your goal. Most important during this visualization is to FEEL the FEELINGS you already identified as the feelings you want to feel. That’s it. Simple. How will this goal become realized? It’s NONE of your business. Focus on WHAT YOU WANT & feel the FEELINGS NOW of your wish already manifested.
With repeated practice of Creation Meditation, you are re-wiring your mind to ACT & REACT in accordance with the feelings of your wish fulfilled thus manifesting your desires. This is how The Law of Attraction works. There’s no magic in “your thoughts becoming things”. It’s cognitive biology. Creation Meditation simply re-wires your brain to ACT & REACT in accordance with the feelings of your wish realized. Manifesting your desires can happen very easily and very fast if you LET GO and trust this tried, true and tested process. Most importantly, have fun with it… you are meant to enjoy life 😊.
Join Eric for back to back Monday night “You as Creator” MEDITATION sessions @ Inner Dawn Yoga July 24th & 31st. Call or message innerdawnyoga.com to register. Spots are limited. Also, my regular Kiwanis classes are still on for July 25th & Aug 1st.
LIVE CLASSES first & last Tues of every month. NEXT CLASSES are Tues, July 25th & Aug 1st @ Kiwanis Centre, Sarnia @ 8-9pm. See class schedule.
And check out this excerpt from the amazing book I’m currently reading:
“To seek on the outside for that which you do not feel you are is to seek in vain, for we never find that which we want; we find only that which we are. In short, you express and have only that which you are conscious of being or possessing (using your thoughts to experience the feelings. Denying the evidence of the senses and appropriating the feeling of the wish fulfilled is the way to the realization of your desire.
Mastery of self-control of your thoughts and feelings is your highest achievement.”
Neville Goddard – Feeling Is The Secret
In our last class, we watched this Anger Eating Monster video – which was also shown at the 10th Global Conference on Buddhism, Neuroscience & Mental Health in Toronto. It’s about becoming friends with our enemies and honouring our adversity as an opportunity to take further steps on the path to inner peace.
LIVE CLASSES first & last Tues of every month. NEXT CLASS is Tues, July 4th @ Kiwanis Centre, Sarnia @ 8-9pm. See class schedule.
I spent the past weekend at the 10th Global Conference on Buddhism, Neuroscience and Mental Health. I look forward to sharing the insights I gained from the monks and nuns. In a pre-conference conversation with Ajahn Brahm, he shared the following:
Eric: “How does one strike a balance between NOT WANTING and honouring / manifesting one’s desires?”
Ajahn Brahm: “One must create a time for desire, but more importantly, one must create a time for NOT WANTING… a time for connecting with contentedness. Time for NOT WANTING is so important, we should schedule a time for it everyday and make it our top priority. Then, when it’s time to work with desire, give it 110%”.
CRAVING = SUFFERING
CRAVING – wanting something from a position of a lack
DESIRE – wanting something from a position of abundance (abundance is generating the feelings of having already obtained your desire in the NOW)
Cessation of CRAVING = ENLIGHTENMENT
MANIFESTING DESIRE = CREATION of one’s life experience.
LIVE CLASSES first & last Tues of every month. NEXT CLASS is Tues, June 27th @ Kiwanis Centre, Sarnia @ 8-9pm. See class schedule.
