Why did I forget the spices of life? I woke up this morning asking myself that very question. Where is it said that once we have been hurt, injured, have a misdiagnosed mental disorder or have an illness, that we are screwed from having a hope-filled, joy-filled, loving life?
After being mangled by the medical community, anti depressed to nearly death, I figured I was done with life. I tried the mind game thing, where I would have to look for that life isn’t so bad, until I die thoughts. To a, this can’t be all there is to life. To the thought, this really sucks. What the hell!
I was taught you get one chance for a loving, exciting life from a repressed mother who did not know how to love or about excitement. After all, I had been put through, shit, was medically injured, and dealing with an illness that was taking more than giving, and all the trying seemed to go nowhere.
Girl I said, you might as well just let it go. That sure made me feel good! NOT!!
Yet that is the mindset in this world. The spices of life have been forgotten, not seen or practiced anymore.
Yet, I believe the spice of life is needed, and it has come rushing in once more in my life. It took a very wonderful spirit to bring it back. It took Spirit to bring a reminder that even I deserve to be happy and excited about life. To welcome in new chances, new beginnings. So I asked for that change and opened my heart to receiving it. In comes the spices and with it the changing of life.
Let’s take the spice cinnamon as a sign.
Cinnamon is a warming spice and a loving spice. Cinnamon helps the heart, both mentally and physically. Cinnamon is one spice in the bible. Cinnamon is often associated with wisdom, prosperity, and protection.
It helps to improve blood glucose levels in people with diabetes. Cinnamon helps to lower blood pressure and hypertension. Cinnamon has antifungal properties. Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory and antioxidants in it. Cinnamon helps maintain a healthy heart, improves brain function. Cinnamon is a positive herb that has been a symbol for fertility, love, spiritual protection, and good luck.
As you can see, Cinnamon is just one of the many spices in life. The spice of life is that which makes life interesting, exciting, enjoyable, or worthwhile. The spice of life is something that makes life feel worth living. Life becomes boring when it is the same day in and day out.
The poem entitled The Task, which was written in the year 1875 by a man named William Cowper. The full line is variety is the spice of life, which gives it all its flavor. The poem compares unseasoned food, which is very bland, with an unexciting life, which nothing new ever happens.
Herbs and spices heal your soul. Spices have been used both as therapeutic foods and medicine. Spices are great for helping to cleanse your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual bodies. They raise the vibrational frequencies and promote overall well-being.
Spices are designed with bioavailable essential and minerals that regulate and restore metabolic function.
I remember that my mom’s cooking had two seasonings, unless it was steak or hamburger, those three seasonings were salt, pepper and garlic salt. That was it. No spices, no variety, just bland. It wasn’t until I got out of the house and many years later that I broke away from the bland and boring, to adding spices. I can’t get enough spice into my life.
The other night I was watching a movie about spices. It was like a light went off for me. I use a lot of spices, but what if you could use them in combination to heal specific conditions? Like Lyme Disease. So I asked Spirit to guide my search to something that would help me with my healing journey. Low and behold, my search went to a website called Spice Mix Re-min.
Since I have brain issues from Lyme, the article that came up read “Boron, silica, selenium, potassium, zinc and two different magnesium compounds are widely understood to promote metabolic activity and to lower inflammatory response in body tissues, including the brain. Brain tissue becomes inflamed just as do other tissues such as nerve, muscle, organs, etc.”
The article says, “To achieve basic levels of homeostatic health, we must use the master regulatory nutritive resources that nature provided in rich organic soil that unfortunately we no longer have access to.”
The blend that this company made has – Cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, chicory root, black seed, cumin, moringa, maca root, black pepper, gypsum, boron, silica, CaCI, MgCI, Mg Glycinate, B12, Potassium Glycinate, Zinc, Alum, Iodine, CsSO4, NaCI, Copper, Selenium.
I was amazed how much healing these spices, herbs and minerals have in them. Everything I have been asking for!
The company also has a blend called e-Lyme-institute the blend includes: Ginger root, Cinnamon, Cloves, Turmeric, Black Pepper, Boron, Silica, Selenium, Potassium Glycinate, Zinc, Magnesium Glycinate, Magnesium Chloride.
That being said, it has brought about an awakening and awareness that I need more than the boring humdrum life I have fit myself into. The one at a time, spice or herb, is okay, but I feel like it takes more than just one spice in life. It takes a combination of things in our lives. Could it be that a combination of spices is healing all aspects of my life? I would venture to guess… yes!!
Life is way too short to not spice it up! Try new things, put yourself out there and try new tastes, new spices, fresh adventures. Add those spices to that boring food and life you have become used to. Take a chance and add spices to your life.
