A few minutes ago, I just got done listening to a free Hay House World Summit talk by Kris Carr, author of "Crazy Sexy Diet" and "Crazy Sexy Kitchen," also know as the star of her own film, "Crazy, Sexy Cancer." Since I had read nearly everything Kris had written, I wasn't sure I'd hear anything new. But I did!
Kris Carr is one of the 110 speakers whose talks are provided for 24 hours free one of the ten days of the summit. Yesterday, when the summit started, I listened to four of those speakers, including Louise Hay, founder of Hay House Publishing and author of many books on healing your life.
If you want in on these amazing free inspiration, this is the link or please see link at the bottom of this blog:
The talks are only free for about 24 hours (perhaps a bit less than 24 hours) on the day each is scheduled. But if you can fit in the time, it definitely is worth it!
Kris Carr often tells people that one really great day to get more healthy food into the day is to start by drinking a green juice or a green smoothie every morning. This time I heard Kris talking a lot more about the changes she made that really made a difference to her, including how she starts her own day.
Something I hadn't done before was to prepare food in advance and freeze it for both my husband and I. That is something I will think about in the future so my husband isn't tempted to pick up some "healthy" processed food in the frozen food aisle. Processed foods are not identified by the body as food and can cause the immune system to attack itself. Sugar is no help either in that regard (and sugar feeds cancer).
Someone else I had to listen to immediately this morning was Anita Moorjani, author of "Dying To Be Me." When Anita talked about how she was a people pleaser before, afraid to be herself, afraid to make anyone angry or upset, I think many women could especially relate to that. The title of her book comes from Anita actually dying before she learned to live again. She had one of the only fully documented near-death experiences, so severe that cancer specialists told her family that she had only hours to live. Her organs had shut down, she was in a coma, and no one had any idea that she was having a near-death experience.
What she experienced in that state was unconditional love, no reason to have to forgive or be forgiven. It was all pure love. She saw her father in that state, and he told her to go back and live her life fearlessly.
Within two days of Anita opening her eyes, her cancer tumors, once the size of lemons, were down 70 percent. Within four days, all the tubes here were out, and the signs of cancer were quickly gone. Numerous tests were run but there was no sign of the cancer. Two weeks after she was released from the cancer hospital, she attended a friend's wedding and drank champagne.
I had previously heard a very powerful interview she gave to Dr. Wayne Dyer. She urged people to live fearlessly, remember their own magnificence, and find the joy in life. Find the passion. Live in the present moment.
Anita's interview with Hay House included such a beautiful visualization and meditation at the end. It included experiencing more of our own pure essence, beyond all the layers of fear, pain, anxiety, anger, sadness, or whatever else we might feel or experience in life.
My goal has been to listen to at least four talks a day. I try to chose at least 1-2 speakers I haven't heard before. I learn something different from each one.
A constant theme from nearly every speaker has been the importance of learning to love ourselves. For instance, Kris Carr reminded listeners about one of her blogs regarding the myth of purpose. She noted that most people think their purpose is beyond themselves---but purpose is not about out there. Instead our purpose is to connect with our own selves, to learn to truly love ourselves.
The purpose of the Hay House talks included provided inspiration to listeners. I have listened to at least 7 different speakers over the past two days, and I can definitely say this has been worth my time.
In less than two days, I have to undergo a dental procedure that I have been assured is painless. Still, I'm a bit nervous if I think about it. Listening to these talks helps me get past that, to realize the positives. My fridge is full of fresh organic produce from the farmer's market, along with other purchases. Really my fridge is brimming with food. Now I can relax and listen to yet another speaker. So much great information and inspiration! I just have to make the time.
