My secret formula.

As the alchemist of your life, what ingredients do you sip to keep your immune system strong and healthy? These are mine.

The Five Ingredients of Irish Chai • 200301 • Ann-Marie McKelvey

The recipe I was given by Yogi Bhajan in 1979:
•5 cinnamon sticks
•15-20 cloves
•15-20 peppercorns
•15-20 cardamon pods
•3-5 inches ginger root sliced thin
•Pinch of black tea optional

Fill  large pot with H20. 
Drop in the five ingredients.  
Bring to a soft boil.  
Turn heat down and simmer all day.  
Drink with fresh almond or coconut milk and a dab of wild honey.

Keep on stove simmering lightly with cover askew through winter days.

Wash your hands!

Keep your immune system strong for yourself and others!
Cough into your elbow.
Sit on your cushion more than you have.
Rest more than is needed.
Eat healthy.
Walk vigorously outside and breathe in the fresh air.
If ill stay home with a good book or movie.
Ask your body, “Body, what do I need to know?”
Listen deeply for the answers.

If you are experiencing fear, call a friend, do morning pages and write about it.
Take a class over Zoom.

Wash your hands!

Reset Time!

Reset time is living in Beginners Mind as fresh eyes and fresh beginnings are revealed.

Here are a few ways Reset Time manifests:
-Follow your intuition as you drive yourself to an unknown location for an overnight.
-Spend 24 hours in your flannel pj’s unplugged so you can plug into your inner world.
-Wander around the town you live in as though for the last time.
-Take yourself out on a date and surprise yourself with unusual gifts.
-Go to bed an hour earlier and get up an hour later. Record your dreams as they arise.
-Give yourself permission to do what you have always wanted to do!

Following through…

We promise ourselves so many things. Sometimes we forget the follow through to make it a reality.

Remember: You are your oldest and dearest friend. Without following through on self-commitment we turn our backs on ourselves and forget who we are.

Challenge: Each day this week fulfill a promise you have made to yourself and follow through.
