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.

2 tsp salt
1 tbsp and a half baking powder

Heat shortening in deep fryer to 370 degrees. Fry 2 or 3 at a time until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add milk gradually making sure the dough is stiff. Put on floured bread board and pat it out with your hands until it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut into strips with a slit in the center. Fry in hot oil until both sides are golden brown.

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

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.

10 Universal Laws You Need To Know For Successful Manifestation – SoulSpring – SoulSpring – A hub for conscious insights on all things life, wellness, love, transformation and spirituality

Recently, there has been a lot of hype about The Law of Attraction. People are writing about it as though it is something new, however, this is not the case.  The Law of Attraction and all other universal laws have existed since the beginning of time. The creation of all that is, our entire existence, is governed by subtle laws that exist in the universe. We cannot see them however we know that they are present. …

Aloha Spirit and Law of Attraction: Forgiveness Works To Clear Emotional Blocks To Receiving Abundance | Lanakila

The first step toward healing is one of Honest Self-Analysis, self-inventory, self-inquiry.
(Ernest Holmes, Science of the Mind, at 248.)

Forgiveness is not always easy. To forgive the one that wounded your heart, at times, feels more painful than any physical wound suffered. Unfortunately, most of us (stubbornly?) refuse to clear the emotional blocks created. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. So, most of us are stuck and can’t seem to achieve that positive spin of acceptance through which the Law of Attraction operates most favorably Therefore, the answer for many of us must be to embrace forgiveness in order to receive abundance.

The Ancient Hawaiians personified the caring of your spiritual health as a polished hand-carved Koa bowl given to a child before the age of five. Each person carries their Spiritual Greatness reflected within that bowl. This light, which is reinforced by the light-life energies of the Ancestors, light the path ahead of you.

However, your Bowl of Life isn’t always light and clear. At times, the light reflected from your bowl can become obstructed by stones that land inside it as you go about your life’s journey. Each time a bad word is uttered, whether from your mouth or from another’s, each time a bad act is committed, whether by you or against you by another, leaves a rock inside your bowl. In time, the bowl becomes dull and heavy to carry. Also imagine that most stones, or negative memories, are received by the soul in the womb of the mother. Every hurtful, stressful, abusive emotional injury that happens to the mother during pregnancy places a scar (a samsara moment, or character tendencies), or spiritual test, or karmic lesson to be learned in this lifetime, on the soul of the child. And, that child’s walk up the mountain of life is burdened with those stones in its sacred bowl of light until he or she learns how to huli – turn over — the bowl to empty them out.

All people climb the same Mountain. The Mountain, however, has many pathways, each with a different view. A person knows and understands only what he sees from his own pathway, from where he is standing on the mountain. As he moves up the mountain of life, his view changes. Only when he reaches the top of the mountain will he begin to see and understand the diverse views of mankind. But, who among us has reached the top of the mountain? How is it possible when the Bowl we carry has become so very heavy?

These are some of the stones in the sacred bowl of light that must be let go of by ancient ceremonial ways. Ancient Hawaiians trained their young in witness consciousness as a way of learning to see clearly with awareness and awakened consciousness … without judgments, opinions, expectations, “should’s” and limited understanding … of what you think that you are looking at. This allows one to walk awake and always connected to the voice of the ancestors, to shine light on what one witnesses from deep within the na’au (heart). The Ancient Hawaiians understood that the MIND is your First Weapon to defeating victim consciousness. It must be polished and disciplined to persist. Thus, your mind is either your best friend or your worst enemy. The Power that unleashes the opportunities brought by the Law of Attraction is Within YOU!!! Change Your Thinking and Change Your Life.

Forgiveness Affirmations are the most thorough way of evoking these cleansing energies.

Tomorrow, we, too, will see a different view. We have not finished growing. We address the spiritual dynamics of human relations and the goal of transformation and healing the hearts of humanity, including intergenerational trauma, right now through the act of forgiveness.

Walk into this Now with a clean sacred bowl of light, as an awakened spiritual being here for a human experience, and not a human being here for a spiritual experience. Let go of all victim consciousness and blame … that was just a bad dream of separation. There are no accidents. Everything happens for righteous cause. This is the experience called the play of consciousness!

I recommend five to fifiteen minutes of daily forgiveness meditation before you go to bed as spiritual practice. This cleans your Sacred Bowl of Light which, in turn, cleanses your creative power that magnetizes your life spark, which in turn, harmonizes you with the Law of Attraction and increases abundance in your life.

May you awaken with opportunities for Abundance knocking at your door. Aloha e malama pono kakou.

Her school, Halau ‘Aha Hui Lanakila, propagates esoteric study of Traditional Japanese Reiki (Usui Teate), herbalogy and energywork with crystals.
