  1. Shoes without rubber soles? (grounding)

    Yeah try them out, they are so cheap! I like how you can feel the ground under your feet so well but still have protection. Making rope sole shoes sounds interesting, let us know how they turn out. - that makes me think maybe i could try making some of these cotton sole ones if i can figure it out. Might be nice

    You may like these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00HXNJYIG/ref=pd_aw_sim_309_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=ENMDGW197AN258KMVXH4 I have a few pairs and i really like them, they say indoor use only, but i walk with them and use them outdoors all the time, they keep going, havent worn a pair out yet .. The only time you dont want to use them outdoors is if the groud is wet, which the cotton sole will become soaked and you hve to dry them out for a few days. Other then that they are good... and it is really comfortable actually, walking on cotton soles.

    Thank you. I have actually been brewing and am still really new to it. I am on just my 3rd brew at the moment and i am loving it! I am at the point where i have 2 huge scobys and am planning to start a scoby motel because i dont know what else to do with them and dont want to throw them away. I have been experimenting a bit on the second brew, the first few times i used pom juice which was great, this last time i tried apple juice and cinnamon which has been my favorite!

    I do not, but i have one of his books that i enjoyed, and know he is well respected. He had some interesting courses online last i checked that are rare to find anywhere else.

    Thanks for your review, that is what i am kind of scared of. Is there a way to test it before drinking it to make sure it is safe?
  7. Probability of Change

    Great topic Everyone gets better results with different methods. Most of the people i know that work with the i ching prefer the coin method. Personally i like the stalks - i never seemed to get consistent accurate readings with the coins, it was always hit or miss but when i started using the stalks it was crazy how accurate and specefic my readings come. Almost scary! My friends do seem to get those specefic readings from the coins though. It could possibly be how tuned in to the reading you are. That is another reason i like the stalks because it draws me in and allows me to concentrate on my question for a longer period of time. ( takes quite a while) another reason they used the stalks, i read, is because they viewed the yarrow as sort of a spiritual connector into things like the i ching The imbalance makes since to me too, i could be wrong but the way i have always seen it, is we are in a post heaven state so there is imbalance everywhere, but the pre heaven state would be the perfectly balanced yin and yang. Since the ancient chinese were so obsessed with numerology i doubt they created the stalks system to be imbalanced mistakenly. Hope to hear more
  8. Im sorry, i do not know much about shinto, but i am interested in learning more about it too. There was a book i found in the library that kind of went into certain aspects of it but not in a satisfying way.. I have also read this book https://www.amazon.com/Life-Changing-Magic-Tidying-Decluttering-Organizing/dp/1607747308 Which the author says is based on a shinto way of life, you may be able to send her an email and perhaps she is open to sharing more? I think there are other members here who know more about it than me

    Welcome, look forward to hearing more from you
  10. Dit Dat Jows - Anyone use them?

    Woodlock oil is supoosed to be very good, unfortunately i never had the chance to use it yet. I used some formula's from plum dragon and east meets west, where you choose a formula and they send you the herbs and you make it yourself. They are good traditional formula's and i enjoy the process. But next time i will try to source the herbs myself as i think better sources can be found. They worked alright, for what i wanted. like many things, it really depends on where you get them. some are miraculous, and some dont do very much.

    To me its opening and at times very cathartic. It's spotaneity, and letting loose from restrictions in my view. I feel its an expression of our deeper selves, maybe that we dont even know about. I agree in its connection to energy and spirit

  13. Excuses, excuses...

    It seems to me, with resolutions (especially relating to food?) It is always easy to stick to it, but it is always a friend or family member that ends up urging me to break it :/ haha

    I love the taste of the high altitude oolongs. I Have tried some of the cheap ones too and they arent too bad. Overall they have more a stimulating effect to me, its hard to sleep if i have cups too close to sleep time. while the puerh' especially raw have a unique buzz, really relaxed but focused & stimulated. Oolongs and greens have more of a cooling effect on my body and i like them in the hot months, and puerh always warms me up in the colder ones.

    Good quality Matcha is great! i havent had matcha in a year or so , it can be pretty expensive for a little packet. Lately have just been drinking puerh's and high mountain oolongs. I like puerh especially for it's benefits to the digestion, especially if you've eaten a meal with too much oil and you are feeling a little heavy. Raw puerh i have been drinking the most lately, but i love ripe just as much.
