Pumpkin Soup

This pumpkin soup was so delicious! An employee brought it in to share for lunch and it was the perfect recipe to make us all dream of autumn, which is soon to come! If you have the time, roast a fresh pumpkin to use in the recipe. However, canned pumpkin puree works just as well and taste just as delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 ½ cup pumpkin puree (either fresh or a 15-ounce can)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk
  • Optional garnishes: extra coconut milk, pumpkin seeds

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 4 minutes until softened.
  2. Add garlic, ginger, and curry powder. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the pumpkin puree and broth. Then, increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Simmer softly for 10 minutes or until heated through.
  5. Add coconut milk and bring to a soft boil. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until heated through.
  6. Remove from heat. Then, puree soup by using an immersion blender. Alternatively, transfer soup in small amounts to a blender and puree each batch until smooth. Hot soup splatters in a blender and can cause the lid to pop off mid-blend, so be careful and don’t overfill.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Finally, serve hot garnished with a drizzle of coconut milk and pumpkin seeds.

NOTES

  • The soup is meant to a have a rich consistency. If it’s too thick for you, just add more broth or water to thin it out.
  • If you are not vegan or vegetarian, vegetable broth can be substituted with chicken broth.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to five days.

P.S. Tensor Rings can be used to give more “livingness” to your food and water. For this soup, we placed the bowl inside a Sacred 1 Cubit Heavy Tensor Ring before devouring it.

Light-Life Tools for Self-Care

As a lot of you know, the Light-Life Tools have endless applications. Today, we wanted to share with you some examples of how you can incorporate Light-Life Tools into your self-care routine. We would like to thank our Light-Life community for sharing your findings with us and we hope these ideas will inspire you to use our Tools in many different ways and experiment with applications more often ?

Mediation Practice

Our Tensor Rings are great helpers if you want to deepen your meditation and/or relaxation practice. You can use ½ or 1 Cubit Tensor Rings on your chakras, placing them where you most need attention now. Use a 1 Cubit Ring as a “crown” on your head or try sitting inside a 3 ½ Cubit Ring during your meditation practice.

Visualization and/or Manifestation may also be more powerful if you use Tensor Rings around your body or around your head/neck. Our Manifestation Ring, Lost 1 Cubit Heavy Tensor Ring, got this name for a reason – it has helped so many of our customers manifest their intentions.

Energy Harmonizers are another great Tool for your manifestation routine. Hold the Harmonizer in your hands, try to connect with it, and broadcast your visions through it.

Visualizing intentions with a Manifestation Ring

Skincare Routine

A friend of Light-Life Tools, Amy Wall, shared the following tips with us. She uses Light-Life Tools in her amazing Energetic Beauty program (check it out, we promise you’ll find a lot of powerful information there). Our Acupressure Tool can be used as a massage wand for your face, neck, and head. The Manifestation Ring is one of Amy’s favorites. She wears it as a crown during the skincare routine and visualizes the end results. Imagine lotion nourishing your skin and the skin responding positively, wrinkles disappearing, skin tone improving, etc. And when you are not using the Ring, you can place your cosmetics inside it to help keep their potency.

Aura Shower

Another great way to use 3 ½ Cubit Rings is giving yourself or another person an Aura shower. Stepping inside the Tensor Ring and moving it up and down slowly over your body may help you get rid of the energies that don’t serve you. It may also help to cleanse your aura, relax your body and mind, and make room for the new and positive.

We hope these tips were helpful and we will be thrilled to hear from you if you’ve discovered new ways Light-Life Tools has helped you on your journey to harmony, happiness, and well-being.

Personal Harmonizers Can Help You Find Balance in Your Job

Personal Harmonizers can help you find balance in your job. Wearing a Personal Harmonizer may help decrease stress levels, provide more calmness around your personal bio-field and co-workers, and help create a sense of balance between work and home. Today, I would like to share how a few people in different professions profited from wearing a Personal Harmonizer while on the job.

Law Enforcement Officer

I met a law enforcement officer at a friend’s house. She was praising the Personal Harmonizer and telling me what a difference it made while on the job. She said she gets frequent calls to the same homes with violent activities. However, the people tend to calm down much faster when she is wearing the Personal Harmonizer. Also, she experiences very little aggression towards her which, of course, was a huge improvement and made her job less stressful. She said that she will turn around and go back home when she forgets to put her Personal Harmonizer on, even it means she will be late for work.

Paramedics

Slim has a friend who works part-time as a paramedic. The Personal Harmonizer, that Slim gifted him, made an enormous difference in his work. He said that getting called to severe accidents was always stressful for the team and, of course, to the people that were involved in the accident. He reported that this level of stress changed significantly since he started wearing the Personal Harmonizer. The team is calmer and more confident in being able to handle whatever arises. He also said that the sometimes the severely injured people in the accident seemed to act less confused and irritated while being able to calm down more quickly.

Public Speaker

We had a report from a public speaker who started wearing a Personal Harmonizer close to their throat during presentations. They noticed that the audience was more attentive and their talks were better received.

Healthy 3-Ingredient Brownies

These healthy 3-ingredient brownies were so easy to make! One of our employees baked them at home and brought them in as an afternoon treat. They turned out like a dense, fudgy, chocolate bite of deliciousness, we just had to share them with you. Dairy free, gluten free, no sugar added… Such an easy way to satisfy the sweet tooth.

Healthy 3-Ingredient Brownies

Ingredients

  • 6 large ripe bananas
  • 1 cup almond butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 350°F. Line a square pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In large mixing bowl, mash the bananas very well.

Dance to Let Your Inner Child Play

Tip of the month: Dance to let your inner child play! Dancing is a great way for you to live in the moment. It’s an excellent stress releaser from everything life throws at you. It can be a powerful way to reduce intense emotions and enhance our happiness. When we’re moving our bodies, we become more in touch with ourselves. Our soul becomes centered by fusing both body and mind. Dancing forces us to be present in the now and not think about what was happening and what may happen next.

Dancing offers a creative outlet for you to express your emotions in a safe place. Close your blinds, close your door, and turn up the music. You don’t need a routine; you don’t need to be coordinated. Just feel the music and move your body. Let your inner self shine. Let your spirit fly free. Express your anger, frustration, sadness, and of course, express your happiness through the beat of your movement.  

The most important thing to remember… Dance like no one’s watching. Unless you’re a professional dancer, there’s no competition to win and no one to impress. You’re dancing to find release. You’re dancing as an expression of your soul. Focus on how it feels. Swing your hips, shuffle your feet, wave your arms around. And lastly, dance to let your inner child play.

Tip of the Month: Living in Sync with the Lunar Cycles

Are you living in sync with the lunar cycles? People understand astrology in terms of the sun. But what about the moon? The changing face of the moon affects you on a regular tangible basis. There are eight lunar phases the moon goes through as it completes a full orbit around the earth every 29.5 days. Along the moon’s journey, our personalities, our emotions, and our lives are affected by each lunar phase.

Just as the moon controls the tides of the ocean, the moon’s energy can tug on our daily lives. Living in sync with the lunar cycles can make your life easier and more productive. It can also contribute to a healthier lifestyle. I’d like to tell you a story:

My granddad was an herbalist, and he saved many people’s lives by making them teas for their health issues. He was also very familiar with the lunar cycle and knew exactly at which phase of the moon to harvest different parts of a plant to prepare the right tea for his clients.

I had forgotten about granddad’s knowledge and hadn’t paid much attention to the moon, until friends gave me a book to read about the lunar cycles. I tested several of the suggestions in the book and it sure made my life easier. Let me share some with you some tips that I feel can be beneficial.

Personal Care

• Right before a full moon, take time for facials that are nourishing to your skin
• After a full moon, find a few moments to exfoliate and help diminish acne
• There are certain days of the month for haircuts to give more volume or faster growth

Household

• Cleaning windows after a full moon can be done in ¼ of the time with no streaks; e.g. I only use water and newspaper to dry it off
• Laundry done after a full moon seems to need less detergent and stain removing is more effective
• You can also find best days for canning

Garden

• There are different days to grow and harvest leafy vegetables and salads versus root vegetables
• Transplanting and re-potting done before full moon is very favorable
• Additionally, weeding after full moon helps keep the weeds away longer

I gave you just a quick overview as there are many more applications that assist with self-care rituals, cleansing of the body and mind, strengthening the aura and chakras, completing construction work, having medical procedures, and much more. If you are interested in learning more about about living in sync with the lunar cycles, a good book to start with is: The Power of Timing: Living in Harmony with Natural and Lunar Cycles by Johanna Paungger and Thomas Poppel. You can also check the Farmer’s Almanac for useful information on how the moon may affect your health.

Tip of the Month: How to Save on Gas

How to save on gas is on everyone’s mind these days. The price of gas is rapidly increasing right now. Being consciences about how we drive can help you save money. These small little acts can also have an impact on Mother Earth. Here are a few tips we compiled to help you save on gas.

Drive less and drive wisely:

Run errands together starting at the place farthest from home. Also, accelerate slowly and drop your speed. Speed limits are there for a reason. Coast before braking when you see a stop sign or red light ahead.

Stop idling for long periods of time:

Waiting in the carpool line to pick up your kids? Turn off the engine. Stuck at a railroad crossing waiting for the longest train to pass? Turn off the engine. More so, warming up your car on a cold morning? Turn off the engine. The fastest way to warm up an engine is by driving.

Pay attention to the dashboard lights:

Get your car serviced regularly. As oil breaks down, it causes your engine to work harder, which mean more gas burning per mile. Therefore, regular oil changes can help you drive farther on one tank of gas. Additionally, keep your tires properly inflated. Under-inflated tires may cause your car to use more fuel.

Use a Light-Life Tensor Ring:

Try placing a Light-Life Tensor Ring over your gas cap. This may help improve gas mileage and keep your car running more efficiently. We have numerous testimonials from users all over the country stating that their mileage improved after using a Plain Jane Tensor Ring.

Tip of the Month: Breathing Exercises

Tip of the month is breathing exercises. Your body needs oxygen to live. As humans, we get oxygen by breathing through our mouths and nose. We can also use our breath to help with all kinds of physical and emotional issues. Breathing exercises can help put your body in a relaxed state. When your body is relaxed, your brain becomes more relaxed. This may help reduce stress or anxiety, increase energy, lower blood pressure, improve lung function, aid digestion, and so much more.

Got 5 minutes to spare? VeryWell Mind gives 8 different deep breathing exercises for anxiety. I’ve picked my favorite 3 for you to try*.

Pursed lip breathing

This is an intentional breathing technique that forces you to slow down. It can also be useful during certain activities like lifting or stair climbing.

• Firstly, find a comfortable seat and relax your neck and shoulders
• Keeping your mouth closed, inhale slowly through your nose for 2-3 counts
• Then, pucker your lips as if you were giving a kiss
• Lastly, exhale slowly, keeping your breath slow and steady, for 4 counts

Lion’s Breath

This technique is an energizing breathing practice that can help relax muscles in your chest and face, relieves stress, and improves cardiovascular function.

• To begin, sit in a comfortable position and press your palms against your knees
• Then, inhale deeply through your nose
• Open your mouth wide and stick our your tongue down towards your chin
• At the end, exhale through your mouth making a long ‘ha’ sound
• Do this breath 2 to 3 times

Humming Bee Breath

This technique helps create instant calmness. It can be used to relieve frustration, anxiety, or anger.

• To start, sit in a comfortable chair or on the floor
• Close your eyes and relax your face
• Place your first fingers on the tragus cartilage that partially covers your ear
• Then, inhale deeply
• Gently press your fingers into the cartilage while slowly exhaling
• As you exhale, make a loud humming noise with your mouth shut
• Continue as many times as needed

* Disclaimer: If you have any respiratory issues, please talk to your doctor before trying any of these breathing exercises.

Tapping Your Body can Create Balance

Tapping your body can create a balance in your body’s energy system. Also known as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), this technique is a self-administered healing technique that reduces negative symptoms from physical-emotional issues. It’s based on modern psychology and the principles of acupuncture’s meridian, but without the use of needles.

Tapping can be beneficial for your heart-brain coherence (read more about this in our blog). It can help generate positive emotions which increases your brain’s ability to function. Here’s a great video from Tapping with Brad Yates on listening with your heart and being more heart-centered.  

Tapping is a simple 5 step process:

  1. Begin by tapping underneath your pinky with the fingertips on the other hand. Identity what the issue is and what your focus will be.
  2. Then rate the intensity of the issue on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the worst
  3. Create a comforting phrase that acknowledges the issue and accepts yourself regardless
  4. Tap the following points on your body 8 times as you repeat your comforting phrase. Complete all 8 points 3 times through:
    1. Eyebrow
    2. Side of the eye
    3. Under the eye
    4. Under the nose
    5. Chin
    6. Top of collarbone
    7. Armpit
    8. Finish at the top of your head
  5. Finally, take a deep breath. Rate the intensity of the issue. Repeat all 8 steps as necessary.

Here’s a great article from Heathline that explains the steps in more detail.
