In this episode, hosts Joe and Kyle interview Hamilton Souther, Shaman/Founder of Blue Morpho. In this episode, they cover Hamilton’s incredible journey from Western life into becoming a Shaman and the spirit teachings that he experienced along the way. 3 Key Points: Hamilton Souther, the Founder of Blue Morpho, shares his experience from living a normal Western life to his journey of his calling, learning and training to become a Shaman. He shares amazing examples of connectedness and spirit while living amongst the natives. A common concept that comes out of an Ayahuasca ceremony is that the plants care for you. The teachings that come from the plants are peace oriented and resolution oriented and opening of creativity and problem solving. Shamanic training is a long and extremely difficult journey. Training comes to the people that feel the deepest calling, because you have to commit your whole life to it.
When you're ready, you're ready! Profound isn't it? 🤣 But it's true. No one can draw that line in the sand for me, or for you. YOU have to draw it for yourself. For me it was that my boys were 5 and 7 and getting involved in sports....and so I had to get involved in sports too. (Yeah, I do because I overcompensate for being a work outside the home mom by being ALL up in thier business) Problem was i was so freakin' tired from trying to keep up physically that I HAD to do something. Praise God (no really...it was Him, He sent the pastors wife 😉) I was invited to the most life changing opportunity. Ya see I thought I was just going to lose some weight and that would be all. PSHHHH Oh, I did...between then and now I've lost 40 pounds but that's not the kicker. The dang kicker is that I gained a new understanding of my health through these programs. *Nutrition ✔ *Exercise ✔ *Accountability ✔ A COMPLETELY NEW MINDSET THAT IS MORE POSITIVE AND POWERFUL ✔✔✔✔✔✔✔✔✔ The thing that held me back the most (and quite frankly, still does) was between my ears.🤯 With each overcome obstacle I get happier, healthier, closer to my goals and closer to the Lord. #madeforjoy#beyourownbeautiful#newhabits#momofboth#mindbodyspirit#menopause

ZUCCHINI BANAN BREAD W/ CACAO DATE SWIRL 🍌🤤 • Baking is so fun for me, It releases a new part of my creativity with food. Plant-based baking/desserts has turned into a healthy way for me to honor and nourish my sweet tooth/cravings. We naturally crave sweets - go about it in a natural way 🌿 So you CAN have your bread, eat it too, AND feel good about it!! • Since transitioning to plant-based, baking has become a fun way to push my creativity since it requires some alterations opposing a standard baking style (one using eggs, milk, butter, etc.) Like using ground flaxseed in place of egg, bananas or applesauce for moisture, nut butter and avocado in place of regular butter. The list goes on ... the plant world is ABUNDANT in creativity. • My love for herbs/plants/healing/superfoods gets to shine through and manifest love into what I create. Hence why is tastes so NOURISHING and AMAZING. • I used a couple slightly different recipes as a reference and basic structure, here's my creation ~ . Dry ingredients: 1c Sprouted oat flour 1/2c Amaranth flour Clove (didn't have cinnamon), cardamom, ground ginger, pinch of pink salt About 1 tsp of both baking soda and powder 1/2c Coconut sugar @drinkcacoco Cinnamon, Nutmeg, & Lucuma drinking cacao mix Wet: 2 Mashed ripe bananas 1c Grated zucchini (squeezed of some liquid for a not so mushy bread) 1/4c Coconut oil Water for consistency (about 1/2-1c) Mix dry in one bowl and the wet in the other, then combine. . Cacao Date Swirl: Blend 4 dates with water until thick consistency Add in Cacao (more for a richer flavor) 1-2 tbsp almond butter (This literally tastes like rich chocolate frosting and I'm in love with it) .

t i p t u e s d a y Did you know that Thieves Household Cleaner can also be used to promote great plant health?! Spray your plants on a regular basis to promote growth and to keep pests and bugs away! All while remaining 100% plant-based and safe! It really takes “all purpose cleaner” to a whole new level! 💪🏻
Thieves Household Cleaner! From now until the end of the month, get a FREE bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner and branded glass spray bottle when you get a Premium Starter Kit. • Who wants to get started!? • 5 reasons why you need to start using a plant-based cleaner: 1. Safety: Warning! Flammable! Do not ingest! Keep out of reach of children! If it has this warning, you don't want it in your house. Household cleaning supplies are one of the top five things accounting for calls to the National Poison Control Center. 2. Air quality: Did you know that indoor air is 5–7 times more polluted than outdoor air? Most cleaning products contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which have been associated with many health problems, including damage to the liver, kidneys, and the central nervous system. 3. Environmental Impact: Harsh chemicals found in cleaners are not only harmful to our bodies, but they also have a major impact on the environment and are huge contributors to environmental pollution. Conventional cleaning products can contain ingredients that are toxic, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like petroleum, so they harm the Earth's ecosystems. 4. Convenience: It's much easier to clean with a few products that take care of all your cleaning needs, rather than a having whole arsenal of toxic products under your sink and in your bathrooms. Thieves cleans countertops, windows, mirrors, floors, toilets, showers, and pretty much everything else. 5. Cost: The cost of buying cleaners is expensive, especially if you have to buy multiple different cleaners. Thieves Household Cleaner is very cost effective, and it comes in a concentrated form. There are approximately 60 capfuls of the cleaner in a 14.4-ounce bottle. Using the medium degreasing ratio, you can get about 29 16-ounce cleaners. That’s less than $1 a bottle!
In life, there are seasons where others walk alongside us through tough times. It requires a spoonful of boldness and an ounce of courage to overcome fear and isolation to let people into the truth of our life. Brene Brown says it best here: “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” ▫️ Our spiritual enemy is kind of crafty. He makes us think "we are the only ones"; "oh, if Susie finds out about this, she's not going to be your friend"; "you call yourself a child of God?"...blah blah blah blah blah. Don't buy into that craziness. Our enemy knows that the closer we come to Christ and each other, the more effective we will be. 🌟If you are in a corner of the world by yourself, begin praying that God will show you a safe person who will walk alongside you while sharing the Truth and Love of Christ🌟 . . #gritandgrace#womenintheword#shereadstruthbible#christianmom#chasingjesus#mindbodyspirit#peace#wisdom#truth
Here’s some mid-week truth - No one is going to build your dreams for you. . . No one is going to create them for you, give them to you, or buy them for you. . . If you want your dream, you have to personally take radical responsibility & go after it. . . Do WHATEVER it takes to make it happen. . . The only other option is to live in regrets & the “what ifs”? 💥💥💥
One thing I’ve been guilty of in my life is devaluing my own feelings and experiences to over-empathize with others. If you’re angry with someone, check in with yourself and realize that you’re allowed and have a right to feel that way! If you feel happy while others don’t, don’t let their mood affect your own! Don’t jump to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and devalue your own feelings. Don’t push yourself down. Make sure you matter to yourself. Vibrate higher. #usikureset
Just wanted to put our some good vibes today - as cliché as it may sound, accept yourself! Accepting yourself leads to healthy lifestyle habits, including with food! We only have one body to live in, we should spend as much time as possible loving and nourishing it! #pranaspiritnutrition
