How I Changed a Habit Without Even Realizing it   1 comment

decisions_universe‘Tis the Season for Resolutions…

by Kandis Twa

738 days; that is how long it has been since my last drink. I know this number-not because I am a recovering alcoholic-but because my ‘last drink’ was a particularly memorable occasion. It was News Years Eve 2011, I was in Paris and the drink was a glass of champagne offered to me by a stranger on the Champs-Élysées. I feel proud that my drinking days ended on such a high note. As a number of my friends embark on a “Sober January”, I thought I would share with you my story of how one month of sobriety turned into many.

I used to really like drinking, I would even tell you I was pretty good at it, so when I decided to stop, it was an unexpected decision for myself and those that know me. I would probably classify my drinking days as fairly average. Average as measured by a relative scale to those around me and my circumstances. Fittingly, university was certainly a peak consumption period in my life, followed of course, by a serious decline rate upon entering the working wold. So after years of being a fairly typical drinker, why did I suddenly make an unusual decision to stop? Honestly, I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore. That’s it. It wasn’t about my health, or the cost, or because I liked it too much-this was not a fear or shame motivated choice. Not at all, I was just finished. Read the rest of this entry »

Magical Christmas Chaos   Leave a comment

Rising Above to Truly Enjoy the SeasonChristmas ornaments on bush

by Kandis Twa

Christmas is a magical time of year however it can also be an extremely challenging time of year for many of us.  Why is this, and why do we seem to lose the magic of Christmas that we know is at the heart of the season?

We celebrate Christmas to commemorate the birth of the prophet Jesus Christ.  And while we know that Jesus was actually born somewhere closer to March or April, this time of year is still very special. Every year as we come to the end of our calendar cycle the Earth is also completing a cycle. Each year as the Earth completes its annual orbit around the sun it resets its energy. Similarly, every cell within your body also resets its energy on the new year. As we approach this time of year each one of us is in the last stages of a cycle of integration. We are integrating all of the changes we have experienced over the year in preparation for a new beginning.  It is really worth a moment to reflect on the year that you have had and all of the differences in your life over the last year. You are integrating all of that right now.  With this piece of information you can see that everyone has a lot going on!

Why You May Consider a Morning Cup of Water Instead of Coffee   Leave a comment

coffee and waterHealthy Living Series: Water-Part Five

by Stan Sauerwein

This is the last installment of our  healthy living series on the subject of water.  Readers of the Pure Leadership textbook series will be acquainted with some parts of this topic as it was well covered in Lift the Veils to Reality and Change is Natural. We hope you’ve enjoyed this series!

 What is the perfect quantity of water to consume?

In previous articles you’ve learned about the functions of water in your physical body, how to raise the energetic vibration of the water you drink, where to determine the parts-per-million of minerals in the water you’ve chosen, and why the dyne rating is an important factor to understand if you want to make water absorption easier by your cells.  You’ve learned how you can use Sacred Codes and water structuring devices to increase the Life Force Energy in the water you drink and how you can improve the quality of your water by supplementing it with natural substances like sea salt, lemon and cucumber.

Now how does one determine the ideal quantity to drink considering your current circumstances?  Well, there is no single answer to that question.  You have to consider your physical body.

Deciphering Truth Within Yourself

by Kandis Twa

Have you ever been faced with a big opportunity and not sure if the apprehension you are feeling is normal or if somehow your intuition is trying to tell you something?

This was a big question for me about a year ago when I was given the opportunity to travel to a new country to do some really interesting work. Initially I was excited about all the new experiences I was going to have, the fascinating people I would have the chance to work with and suddenly I was really nervous; restless sleeping kind of nervous. So naturally I wondered is this nervousness coming from a forewarning kind of place or is this just the butterflies that naturally signal the start of a new adventure?

In order to feel really good about your decisions it is important to be able to distinguish between fear and guidance from your higher self; here are some suggestions.

Quality and Quantity-Making Wiser Choices about the Water you Drink   Leave a comment

by Stan Sauerwein

Pure Leadership News is delivering a healthy living series on the subject of water.  Readers of the Pure Leadership textbook series will be acquainted with some parts of this topic as it was well covered in Lift the Veils to Reality and Change is Natural.  

What makes good quality water?

We’ve learned that water is abundant, and our sentience is at least partly attributable to water.  We’ve learned that drinking water is essential to how our physical body functions.  Basically, water equates to life.  But is all water created equal?

From Clayton Nolte’s research mentioned in a previous article, we realize that structured water is one of the best ways to consume this life-giving, miraculous substance.  We’ve also learned that we can use sacred codes to energize and purify the water we drink.  We’ve learned that with the appropriate belief system, we could drink contaminated water and our body would purify it and generate the minerals it needs. It would literally transmute ‘bad stuff’ into ‘good stuff’. However, until you have achieved that belief and the necessary level of vibration, the quality of the water you begin with is obviously important.

What I’m Really Thinking on Facebook   Leave a comment

ImageA Positive Social Revelation

by Kandis Twa

Ok, full disclosure, I’ve been on Facebook and had all of the following thoughts: I do not like that haircut, those are terrible shoes, there they go bragging again, that’s a bad baby name, who cares about your dog. These, and many other thoughts which I am not proud of have gone through my head! So, I’m going out on a limb here but, I don’t think I’m alone. What’s more, is that I know this is very grade six behaviour but I believe that this kind of thinking is so habitual that we don’t realize firstly, how much we engage in it, nor that it has a huge impact on our lives. So here’s why you may want to be really honest with yourself and pay attention to what you are thinking as you scroll and click you way through your friends latest posts.

What does water do in my body?

If we don’t know the many ways that water functions in our physical body, we’re not likely to care very much about the quality or the quantity of water we drink.  We might even assume we’re getting enough water from our daily dose of latte or caffeinated tea, and the three or four more cups of java or cans of soda we might slurp (when we feel we need that little energy boost), or that frothy glass of beer after work (which we’ve misconceived is going to calm things back down). Seemingly, many people think that is the way to hydrate.  In fact, it’s been estimated that 40% of the North American population is in a chronic state of dehydration because so many of us have that impression.  Some people are in a state of dehydration for so long they’ve actually lost the ability to recognize when they are thirsty!
