I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t my heart that was recently broken by untruths, but more a crushing blow to my sensitive Ego. While I know logically that someone’s inability to be honest with me (even when I ask for it) has nothing to do with me and everything to do with them,…… Continue reading When a Broken Heart is Nothing More than a Bruised Ego
I for one have mastered the art of getting in my own way. I wasn’t born with this gift. But I wonder if self-sabotaging traits can be re-gifted through DNA, learned by example in the home, or if it takes both nature and nurture. I’ve heard that we are the average of the people we…… Continue reading Do You Have a Black Belt in Self-Sabotage?
Before I share journal entries on my travels to Peru to work with Shamans and plant medicines, I wanted to explain why I felt so drawn to Ayahuasca. At 41 years of age I had had enough of the medically and socially acceptable, traditional and alternative methods to relieving chronic pain, depression and anxiety – many…… Continue reading What Called Me to Ayahuasca

In April 2010 I was over 200 lbs. I had stopped using the scale after reaching 202 lbs, so I couldn’t tell you my heaviest weight. This first photograph was taken at a friend’s wedding in Las Vegas. I was painfully insecure at that time; I hated how I looked, but more importantly I hated…… Continue reading Jasmine’s Paleo and Fitness Journey
I found a wonderful medical doctor through the Paleo Physicians Network. Because he follows a Ketogenic diet to manage his own health issues, and because he’s heard positive things about ketosis and neurological diseases, he was supportive when I mentioned giving Keto a try. We’re both hoping it lessens or possibly eliminates my chronic headaches…… Continue reading Jasmine’s Paleo Update: Month 7
