21 Day Balance 4

21 day clean, purge, balance
13 April 2020 Day 18 (Balance 4) – Perception
Welcome to Day 18 (Balance 4) – Holding a perception that supports the story you want to hold.
The mind influences every cell in the body, by consciously focusing attention and changing behaviors we can decrease biological age, weakness, and lack of immunity. Modern science is verifying the role of thoughts and our perception of the environment/events on the production of hormones, proteins and the unfoldment of our body. Dr. Bruce Lipton says that Epigenetic’s verifies that based on our perception of the environment a single DNA blueprint for “a” protein can make 30,000 different proteins to dynamically adapt to the environment we find ourselves in. They have found some individuals born with defective genes are able to turn on production of proteins to restore functioning of the body even thought the gene is defective.
So how we think about our life and events is very important. Dr. Lipton says: Our thoughts can heal us or our thoughts can kill us. How do you act on this information?
1) Work with Dr. Rivene or an NET doctor for the most rapid and direct ways to change beliefs and start to develop healthy behaviors. Dr. Rivene works with all her patients to tease out hidden and dangerous beliefs and perceptions. As they surface the Net processes remove the charge (neutralizing the old belief) and a new healthier belief is adopted. Jim experienced this first-hand about twenty years ago when Dr. Rivene found a time bomb that was set to trigger in his mid fifties that probably would have caused a heart attack. He did the work to reverse it and still felt a little release of energy in the mid fifties that was mild and life affirming instead of a heart attack. (break in letter)
2) And identify perceptions and beliefs you have that don’t suit you. Craft healthier stories you want to live and use tapping (link on website) to install them into your subconscious. Tap the affirmations Dr. Rivene gives you and maybe some affirmations you like below or that you make:

Balance, the Art of Living

21 Day Balance 3

12 April 2020 Day 17 (Balance 3) – Play
Welcome to Day 17 (Balance 3) – Reclaiming the openness and wonder of playing in the world.
Play is a vital element of recreating ourselves on a daily basis. Watch young children playing and you’ll see the free spirited openness, wonder, innocence, and delight they approach the world with. Adopting the characteristics as an adult can counter the years of restriction and limitations we have adopted through our life lessons in fitting in with peers, business, and so on.
Today find something that allows you to feel childlike characteristics for instance: flexible, open, joyful, spontaneous, creative, fearless, agenda less, take the road less travelled, taking risks (physical and emotional), remembering your inner child, self-investigating, and just being. Choose one thing that helps you remember and be childlike (ask your inner girl or boy what she or he would like to do) and do it today and choose something to do every day that reminds you and reconnects you to this part of yourself. Perhaps it is eating your favorite food (ice cream, popcorn), jumping rope, climbing a tree, dancing, walking in nature, gardening, coloring a picture, people watching, or whatever. Dr. Rivene likes to ask her inner little girl and saw a room filled with helium balloons with dangling strings that she feels caress her as she walks through the room.
Whatever you decide approach it with courage, from joy, wonder, no agenda or concern, no limits, no restrictions, and revel in the joy of just being – loving yourself and loving the experience. Resting in the place of yourself that just is, always present, without striving, comparing or directing that loves you just as you are in the moment. Play in the freedom of your garden of delight a little each day. God or Source has created the Universe as our playground to investigate and to self-investigate which allows us to become who we mean to be. Through play we try on our roles in happiness and bring them from imagined play to fruition in ourselves and the world.
Take Away (Balance 3): Adopting the characteristic of child-like play as an adult keeps your mind and body flexible, young and spontaneous. It renews mind/body and reverses the aging process.
Practice this for 21 days to see the effects first hand. Continue the practices from previous days for the entire program to fully experience the benefits.

21 Day Balance 2

21 day clean, purge, balance
11 April 2020 Day 16 (Balance 2) – Food to Balance
Welcome to Day 16 (Balance 2) – Eat well; increase wellness, feel centered, and healthy when you eat for life.
“If you eat living food, the same will quicken you, but if you kill your food, the dead food will kill you also. For life comes only from life, and from death comes always death.”
Essene Gospel of Peace
You are what you eat. In modern times this reminds us to focus on living foods that renew and revitalize the body and avoid dead foods that accelerate aging and increase entropy (disorder). Dr. Rivene has always taught patients to eat “Love” foods, those alive with life force, and avoid “Fear” foods, foods devoid of life. Eliminate canned, frozen, preserved foods, micro-waved, old, and highly processed foods preferring fresh fruits, nut, grains, and vegetable in season, and freshly prepared foods as close to nature as possible.
Alive (love based foods)* Dead (fear based foods)
Fresh in season and local fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legume, Living water (from fresh squeezed juice consumed after squeezing) Canned, bottled, frozen, preserved, micro-waved, processed, meat, artificially flavor, sodas, candies, etc.
Freshly prepared foods leftovers
Eat from the rainbow of colors to insure a range of anti-oxidants and micro-nutrients.
Eat the Colors of the Rainbow
Red: Tomatoes, watermelon, radicchio, peppers, red grapes, beets, red cabbage, strawberries, currants
Orange/yellow: Squash, carrots, peppers, sweet potato (yam), pumpkin, papaya, mango, peach, nectarine
Green: Spinach, Swiss chard, green figs, broccoli, kale, peas, avocado, greens, cabbage, watercress, rocket
Purple/blue: Plums, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, eggplant w/ skin
To fit the needs of your body’s constitution (dosha) eat all six tastes sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent at meals (join our Happy Foods (link) class in May to learn more or sprinkle your food with your dosha churna (link) available at the office).
Eat all six tastes to balance your body
Sweet, salty, and sour to tonify in moderation, excess lowers metabolism. Rice, squash, celery, sea weed, lemon, fermented foods, etc.
Pungent, bitter, and astringent to reduce inflammation and increase metabolism. Radishes, peppers, spinach, greens, lentils, lettuce, mustard greens and powder, ginger, etc.

Practice this for 21 days to see the effects first hand. Continue the practices from previous days for the entire program to fully experience the benefits.
Take Away (Balance 2): Eat real living food (like nature provides) in all colors, and the six tastes for abundant balanced life force.
Enjoy your Balance,
