Do You Jam? Co-Creating with the Universe and Home-Made Jam

Are you jamming and co-creating with the universe?

 

Allow yourself to see the balance in things.

 

See the connection, the intensity, the romance, the attraction- the strong pull to something.  But, be aware of the other side.  Take caution into account.  And note if it is the right path for you.

 

From your higher self, choose if something is going to serve you to your highest potential and if it is lifting you up and above to what you are truly worthy of doing and having.

 

Or, are you settling for something?  Is it more scary to let go of something "small" now for something so much "bigger" and greater coming soon?  Even if you do not know what that big thing looks like or what exactly it is- can you trust enough to let go of the things now that aren't this.  And make way for something so much more.

 

Areas of your life to look at:

1. your habits (are you doing something that isn't in alignment? ie- drinking, smoking, junk food, sugar)

2. your behaviours (do you get stressed all the time?  do you get angry all the time? are you not sleeping enough?)

3. relationships (are you settling?)

4. your business, what you are doing to generate money (are you playing small?)

5. communication with people (are you holding something back? )

 

What can you give up?

What can you give up today...to make room for something new and bigger?  Is it your pride?  Your hesitancy?   Your self-judgement?  Your judgement of others?  What are you holding onto so tightly, that you are frozen and unable to do the things that you really want to do today, now?  Fear of the unknown?  Uncertainity?

 

Can you be certain that you are choosing the best path for yourself in every moment?  

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. ~ Rumi

 

Say it how you want it to be.

Say it like it already is this way.  And feel it in your body.  Know it in your gut, in your heart and in your soul, in every cell of your body.  Whether you are focusing your intention on money, relationships, health, or any  other area of your life...

 

I give up my limiting beliefs of what is possible.  I know that everything I want and believe and know to be true- is true.  I step into this and allow the universe to assist me and help me every step of the way.  Today, it all happens with ease and flow and grace and effortlessly.  

 

And, while you are jamming with the universe, why don't you love some oh-natural jam!!!

Concord Grape Jam (sugar free)

Ingredients:

3 cups concord grapes (local and organic) 1 lemon

 

Directions: 1. Rinse off your grapes very well. 2. Pull the skins off of the grapes- this should be quite easy, they slide right off (this is true for Concord grapes, not all varieties of grapes). 3. Place the grape skins in the food processor and blend until smooth. 4. In a small saucepan, place the insides of the grapes.  Heat on low for 15-20 minutes, until the grapes are broken down and form a jelly like mixture. 5. At the same time heat the grapeskins in another small saucepan for 10-15 minutes, until very thick. 6. If you want to take the seeds out, you will need to strain the grape mixture through a fine strainer or  cheesecloth.  If you want to leave the seeds in (there are actually medicinal properties to the seeds), you will need to blend the grape mixture in the food processor to break up the seeds.  Be careful if you do leave the seeds in- because they are hard and difficult to chew if you catch a see in your mouth. 7. Combine the grape skin mixture and inside of the grapes mixture, in a small saucepan.  Simmer for another 5-10 minutes, until combined well. 8. Add the lemon juice and mix together. 9. Before pouring the grape jam into a jar, make sure you disinfect the jar and lid (wash in the dishwasher or heat in a pot of water until boiling for a minute). 10. This jam will keep for a month, store in the refrigerator.*

 

*Note- this is not a lesson in properly canning jam.  If you are making a large batch to place in storage, please make sure you know how to properly can foods!!!
