Bonfire for Winter Equinox at Nautilus – the Entrance


June 21, 2014 – Winter Equinox

We celebrated the new beginnings with the ANGEL OF TRANSFORMATION:

His energies infuse every cell of our body and the changes occur instantly on every level of our being.

Everything that doesn’t resonate with our new vibration is transmuted and transformed now.




Peaceful Warrior – the Movie quotes

ImageQuotes from ‘the Peaceful Warrior’
“You are out of your mind!”
It has taken me a lifetime of practice.

“There is never nothing going on.
There are no ordinary moments!”

Take out the trash- the trash is anything that keeps u from the only thing that matters: this moment! here, now.! You’d be amazed what u can do – and how well you can do it if u were present – every moment of your existence

Sometimes you have to lose your mind before you come to your senses.

I know this is a scary moment for you,  are you paying attention to it?

Slash through all regrets & fears. Everyone lives in the past or the future.

A warrior doesn’t give up what he loves… He finds the love in what he does.

It’s not about perfection or invulnerability. He is about absolute vulnerability! That’s the only true courage.

Life is choice. You can choose to be a victim or anything else you choose to be.

There is no starting or stopping, only doing.

You share the predicament of humanity – when you don’t get what you want, you suffer and when you get exactly what you want you still suffer, because you can’t hold on to it.

You don’t surrender the dream – what you do surrender is control – accept that you have no control over what happened to you.
You may get your wish – you may not, but accept that you are something exceptional either way.

Where are you?  Here
What time is it?  Now
What are you?  This moment

Death isn’t sad – sad is that most people never lived

Life is all about the choices you make every moment

Recipe of the week – Healthy Brownies



If you like it sweet, but have deprived yourself for health reasons, this might be the right alternative – and you can also purchase the cook book to go with it, if you go to the website below ($ 5). Otherwise simply try the recipe below and see if you enjoy it as much as I did. Have fun and lose weight while eating chocolate brownies in moderation, Barbara

* 1 cup cooked black beans 
* 1 1/2 large eggs
* 1 tbsp + 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
* 2 tbsp cocoa powder
* 1/3 cup soaked pitted dates, finely chopped
(about 12-14)
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
* 1/8 tsp sea salt
* 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
* 2-3 tbsp dark chocolate chips

1. Soak dates for 1-2 hours until soft, but
not mushy, drain and chop finely
2. Preheat oven to 350F
3. Rinse and drain the black beans well
4. Add all ingredients except for chocolate
chips in blender and blend until very smooth
5. Stir in chocolate chips
6. Pour batter into rectangular loaf pan that
has been brushed with butter or olive oil or
lined with parchment paper
7. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, do not
8. Brownies are ready when a toothpick
inserted into the middle comes out clean
9. Cool and then cut into squares

TIP: these taste even BETTER after a night
in the fridge, but I don’t blame you for having
one while they’re still hot. 🙂
