1/4 t salt
warm water

Navajo #2

3 cups unbleached flour, sifted
1/2 cup dry powdered milk
1 Tbs. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup warm water or milk
2 quarts oil for deep frying
Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl and knead until smooth and soft, but not sticky. Depending on the altitude and humidity, you may need to adjust the liquid or the flour, so go slowly and balance accordingly. Be careful not to overwork the dough, or it will become tough and chewy. Brush a tablespoon of oil over the finished dough and allow it to rest 20 minutes to 2 hours in a bowl covered with a damp cloth. After the dough has rested, heat the oil in a broad, deep frying pan or kettle until it reaches a low boil (375º). Pull off egg-sized balls of dough and quickly roll, pull, and path them out into large, plate-sized rounds. They should be thin in the middle and about 1/4 inch thick at the edges. Carefully ease each piece of flattened dough into the hot, boiling oil, one at a time. Using a long-handled cooking fork or tongs, turn the dough one time. Allow about 2 minutes cooking time per side. When golden brown, lift from oil, shake gently to remove bulk of oil, and place on layered brown paper or paper towels to finish draining.

Serve hot with honey, jelly, fine powdered sugar, wojape, or various meat toppings.

Hint:
The magic is in frying the bread quickly! The hotter the oil, the less time it takes to cook. The less time it takes to cook, the lighter the texture and lower the fat content.

Loving Support for Those Experiencing Chronic Illness – Part 1

Chronic illness can feel like such a solo, arduous journey. From the moment you wake up, to the moment you have relief in sleep, for months, for years…it can feel like a cruel punishment for something you weren’t let in on by the Universe. It can feel like an endless vision quest ….

Reflections …

“As long as we continue to ignore our divine side and the Divine Wisdom and highly specialized faculties and abilities we have, as long as we refuse to use them or exercise them, we will remain in all of our mental and worldly affairs, nothing more than creatures of the animal kingdom. Religions say we should put our faith in God, but as Rosicrucians, we say that we should put our faith in the Divine Consciousness, the Divine Wisdom and the Divine Powers that we all possess and which reside within each of us and remain more or less undeveloped in all human beings.”  — H. Spencer Lewis

===== General Questions =====

Q. What are Binaural Beats?

“Binaural Beats” is a term given to playing one sound frequency in one ear, and another sound frequency in the opposite ear, creating a two-tone effect in the mid-brain that is actually perceived to be one tone. This causes an “Entrainment” effect in the brain that has a variety of results depending on the frequency.

Q. What are Binaural Beats good for?

Lots of things. Meditation, Relaxation, Stress Relief, Deeper Sleep, Pain Relief, Mind Expansion, Brain Hemisphere Synchronization, and the list goes on and on.

Pretty much any element of the Mind / Body complex can be improved using Binaural Beats, which again is just Brainwave Entrainment.

Q. Do Binaural Beats Actually Work?

Indeed. Many scientific studies (especially as of late) have conclusive research on Brainwave Entrainment and it’s effects.

Q. Must I wear headphones for these videos?

You don’t have to use headphones, but the Binaural effect is increased if you do.

Q. Do I need to close my eyes while listening to this?

No, although you’ll find closing your eyes will generally lead to a deeper, more profound state while listening.

Meditation:  Purification Of The Spirit | Lanakila

Streaming light through the redwood trees in the Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, California

This journey, if done completely and rightly after an Initiation or Attunement, ought to only require one occasion experiencing this spiritual expansion.  However, if the first experience is not conclusive, perhaps because you encountered a disturbance or interruption while in meditation, then  repeat this Purification visualization a second time.  It is recommended that you undergo this meditation a maximum of three times.  If the purification or the awakening of the Spirit is not then obtained, then it means that you are not spiritually ready to absorb and magnetize fully the energies of your Initiation or Attunement.  No worries.  Everything will eventually work out.  Exercise patience over a three-month period as you work with your Guide, then try again.

Health:  3 Ingredient Homemade Toothpaste With Turmeric To Whiten Teeth And Reverse Gum Disease | Home Remedies

Dental hygiene companies advertise toothpaste that whitens your teeth, but these have been shown to cause damage to your tooth enamel when used regularly.  Other side effects of commercial teeth whiteners include teeth sensitivity and gum damage due to irritation of soft tissue in the mouth. In some cases, the side effects caused by teeth whitening products are irreversible.  There are many reasons to switch from commercial, store-bought products to natural teeth whiteners. Aside from the fact that store-bought products contain ingredients that are harmful to your oral health, natural teeth whiteners will provide a more effective cleaning for your teeth.

La’au Lapa’au:  How To Prevent Breast Cancer Through An Armpit Detox | Herbs Remedies

According to many recent studies, the number of female breast cancers is remarkably high. They all originate in the upper outer quadrant of the breast, the area where underarm cosmetics products are applied. Actually, since this area is mostly adipose, most toxins get stored in the breast tissue.

But, you can reduce breast cancer risk and detoxify your body by an armpit detox.

Reiki:  Attunement to Medicine Buddha Reiki Master Now Available

For only $50, I will attune you to be a Medicine Buddha Reiki Master. | The Medicine Buddha is the Buddha of healing. Historically, it is believed helpful to meditate on his image and to chant his mantra with the desire | On Fiverr.com

Reiki, as we know it today, is the work of a Shintoist-Buddhist physician and teacher named Mikao Usui. Usui is said to have discovered a Tantra, or Esoteric teaching, originally given by Shakyamuni Buddha on the practice of the Medicine Buddha.

Due to visions he had of the various Buddhas, and the guidance of his own spiritual teacher, he fasted and meditated on the practice and received empowerment directly from the Buddhas. He then adapted the teaching so that it could be practiced by anyone who wished, including non-Buddhists. Some believe that Usui transmitted several forms of Reiki-one for non-Buddhists, one for Buddhists, and one for Tantric (Vajrayana) Buddhists.

Medicine Buddha Reiki course is very powerful and is derived from the sacred Buddhists scriptures.

The Medicine Buddha is an enlightened being who protects living beings from physical and mental illnesses and other dangers and obstacles, and helps them to eradicate the three poisons-attachment, hatred, and ignorance-which are the source of all sickness and danger.
