Let's talk canned fish

    For me, I think epi-paleo is the most intuitive thing and is the best thing to work for me in all my life (whether I was looking at food as health or not). I know Jack was hinting at seafood for a while leading up to July...and I ate some seafood throughout for sure. But when July hit and I decided to eat seafood every day and also eat seaweeds, it felt like a miracle. I can't see myself eating any other way ever again. I don't like looking at hunter gatherers from paleolithic era...when they were deciding to branch out. Sure that works, but for me seeing how our brain evolved in the FIRST place then apply that to healing...it's as easy as 1 2 3. So if seafood 'built' a brain, then it can 'restructure'/heal a brain that might have been damaged in some ways by epi-genetics or even life events. I honestly think the nutrients provided in this plan (and the circadian rythms) allow for the brain to re-grow and/or set down new pathways so that you can override possible errors from before. You don't need to 'fix' the broken at all...you can just 'fill on top' of it. Make new neurons....

    So this is why it's simple and easy for me and I don't get overwhelmed about canned or frozen or fresh. I eat mostly from frozen and even in expensive too. I eat canned if I want sardines and oysters. Easy. Seaweeds I've come up with many good ideas. In the Fall/Winter I decided to eat apples b/c I felt it's good for my digestion and for resveratrol, and the fact that they are harvested in Fall and keep so well over winter easily w/o modification. Just keep in cool dark room. So I put salt, curcumin and cinnamon on the apple slices (usually before breakfast). Very tasty. I eat carrots, onions and kale too. Of course I love my coffee and I put coconut oil in it b/c I want the ketones for my brain. For me it's important to get a decent amount of coconut oil in me despite it being from the tropics. I eat nuts and seeds but not like a million (and I feel OK on them) b/c I don't have AI. I eat eggs b/c of no AI. I don't eat dairy tough, b/c the way I feel on it. Goat butter is the only dairy I seem to tolerate. Cow butter...I don't know...I just don't like it anymore. For me my health is #1, so I use food to be prescriptive and within that context I overlay that with seasonality. So if I eat coconuts all year that are not normal for winter, well that's the prescriptive side of things. I mean, technically coffee is not from my region either, but I choose to drink it, and in this case mainly b/c I truly truly enjoy the complexity in each cup of coffee and the literature from where the coffee bean comes from. Just fascinating. (And b/c also it makes a great carrier for my coco oil lol).

    I just feel like life is so much easier now b/c I know to go to bed early and wake up with the sun (well in winter it's before the sun due to going to bed early...but that's different). I obey the circadian cycles. Period. I don't worry about food or what to eat b/c I have my seafoods and I have the fats which I know are good. ie. bacon, duck fat, goat butter coconut oil, avacadoes. Easy. How can it get any easier?

    That's MY n-1.

    HI Inger, My husband is very intuitive too & loves silence. I can't shut my mind up!
    He is also very good at testing food supplements etc with a pendulum, some canned fish is fine & some is very low grade. Same applies to all food of course.
    He can sometimes just look at food & see by it's energy whether it's good quality or can taste immediately if it's not full of energy. I can only go by taste.
    I'm not very good at using the pendulum as you have to be able to completely empty your mind or you'll influence the result.

    I am kind of thinking.. be silent. I often think these words in my head. Be silent. An old very wise lady, my good friend (she lived until almost 100 yo) always said that. I loved the atmosphere in her home. So very full of beautiful peace. I was there so often as a kid. I guess she learned me something huge.

    Maybe we need to silent our mind (Brain?) to feel the intuition?[/QUOTE]

    There's a practice called sealing the five senses. Lots of others out there too...The less energy you waste with excess thinking, talking, looking, hearing, etc...the more you conserve for...whatever you choose, including tuning into your inner wisdom.

    There are lots of different formal practices (like "sealing of the five senses")...

    with a similar intention...

    of helping a person organize and "seal" up their energy field to avoid taking in undesired energies in from others/the world around them, or leaking personal energy reserves.

    Doesn't have to be formal or complicated or esoteric though.

    One thing I am practicing right now is "not having an opinion" rather than "being nonjudgemental." Being nonjudgemental is more active/requires more energy output, whereas having no opinion is more passive/requires less energy output. I've noticed, for example, I tend to go out and about seeking people and things that irritate me. Even just looking over at the driver next to me and "catching" them on their cell phone. Or noticing who is or is not wearing a mask. Or who is or is not plastering their cars with what bumper stickers. Then I go through being judgmental about those people and things. Then I pull my attention around to "trying to be non judgemental," telling myself things like "everyone is just doing the best they can." But I've already stressed out about stuff that doesn't really matter, for the tiny little bit of egoic boost that came from feeling momentarily self righteous, then the tiny boost that came from exercising the spiritual elitism of "being nonjudgmental."

    Setting the intention to "have no opinion," I stop looking around for stuff to irritate me. If I happen to notice something that would otherwise irritate me, I catch myself and say "I have no opinion about that." I spend way less energy wrapped up in what other people are doing or not doing, and have way more energy left for whatever...

    It's also making me more aware of all the things I waste my time having an opinion about when I can never really know why anyone is doing what they are doing.

    Become your own best friend and guard your energy inputs and outputs, whether or not you follow any specific practices.
