Joint and Muscle Medicinal Tea

I have to say, one of the hardest things about going to live a simpler life, is the lack of financial ability to help your children. My daughter, Clare has been hit horribly with spiritual attacks this month, after doing incredible healing work for others. The last was this car accident. Right after she fixed her car, now it is totaled. Her body was slammed against the airbag, with her neck and arm hurt horribly. She has two broken ribs and a fractured collarbone, as well as whiplash. If anyone wants to go to my facebook page and click on the GoFundMe link to donate, it sure would help her medical and car bills. Thanks for anything you can do! If you can’t help monetarily, as I can’t, we sure get it, and TOTALLY understand. Will you please send your prayers, mantras, and good energies her way? Thank you all for the continued support for me and my family. We are so loved and so grateful for you all.

Well, the Women’s Potluck/Clothes Share was a wonderful success. Everyone brought food and clothes to share. And it was just so relaxed, with vibrant, wonderful women. I am truly rich to know them. Funny, ’cause we didn’t have electricity the entire day, but everyone was so at ease, these powerful, confident, beautiful women. We had a wonderful mix of veggies, fresh basil and fruits from gardens, fruit salad with yogurt, three types of tea, raw crackers, chocolate fondue, dried bananas, beans, and Quinoa Corn Salad with Avocado. So good! Everything! I feel entirely full in body and spirit.

Concentration Tea

A new friend of mine gave me a taste of ORMUS, also known as white powder gold, or the Philosopher’s Stone. It was discovered in 1975 by an Arizona farmer named David Hudson who discovered some material in his soil that he had never seen before. He laid it out to dry in the hot Arizona sun so he could have it analyzed, but the stuff exploded in a big flash of light and disappeared/ But when he dried it without the use of sunlight it didn’t disappear.

The tests showed that this material reacted differently to various heat and cold treatments.  The turning point was at 70 seconds heat treatment. When Hudson stopped the process at 69 seconds the powder contained no precious elements, yet at 70 seconds or over it did.

Ormus is a superconductor. Hudson  showed by dissecting animal brains that they too contained Ormus. According to Hudson our brains contain at least 5% Ormus. This percentage can be raised considerably if we take in food and water with a high Ormus content.

Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements, or ORMEs. This has become known as Ormus and stands for what are twelve known elements which exist both in a material and an immaterial, energetic form. These are the known Ormus elements:

* Cobalt

* Nickel

* Copper

* Ruthenium

* Rhodium

* Palladium

* Silver

* Osmium

* Iridium

* Platinum

* Gold

* Mercury

Ormus is life energy.

Interesting, huh? So people take it in liquid form for thirty days, or more. What happened to me was extremely high energy, happiness and at the same time, incredible stillness inside, working on each of the chakras, in turn, and always remaining in the 3rd Eye. For a good, almost 24 hours. Bill Lanphar makes it here in Vilcabamba, and you can buy it from him.

ORMUS gold

Clare’s GF Cake Pops

You know, and you all in Vilca probably know, that my jeans have been way, falling off of me too big for almost two years. Okay, I boiled my jeans for forty minutes, laid them out flat to dry and, unless I just gained some substantial weight, they shrunk down a size. Yay! Even if it is just for a day or twp, it’s nice to wear my old jeans again. You could also throw them in a drier to shrink them down, if you have one!

 Recipe of the Day – Gluten-Free Cake Pops
Clare’s gluten-free cake pops


  • baked & cooled gluten-free cake (find one in the search engine of this blog!)
  • coconut dairy-free frosting (search on this blog) or frosting of choice
  • chocolate bits
  • sprinkles or coconut sugar


  • Bake and cool gluten-free cake. Using your hands, crumble cake into a large bowl until uniformly sized, as pictured.
  • Stir in frosting, 1/2 cup at a time, until the cake and frosting holds together when squeezed together in your palm,
  • Shape to the size you desire for your pop. Freeze for at least an hour. Using a double-boiler and working quickly, heat and stir chocolate until it is smooth and melted. Dip the end of a straw or cake-pop stick into the melted, very thin chocolate, and insert into the middle of each cake pop.
    Roll the pop through the melted chocolate and then sprinkle with coconut sugar or gluten-free sprinkles.Lay on wax paper on a cookie cool and store in containers in the freezer before serving.
  • Word of the Day – pantalones – pants

Tip of the Day – Don’t be surprised if you lose a bunch of weight when you come here. The lack of processed and frozen foods, and just not having the things you ordinarily eat in the states, melts it right off of you!
