Step 1 in Waking up the Inner Hero

Clear your space

“What you don´t have you don't need somehow, what you don´t have you don't need it now”. Bono, U2

Energy is fluid and naturally flows to us and from us. Sometimes we allow ourselves to be in the flow and sometimes we hold on, materially, physically and emotionally. By letting go of what we no longer require or benefit from and likewise allowing yourself to receive what is being offered, we realign with the flow.

The basis of the flow:

  • Enjoy, use and grow what you have,
  • Release, give away or dispose of what you do not need, enjoy,
  • Receive openly that which is being offered that works for you.

When you meet someone who is looking for what you have and you don’t need it, offer it, and in practice releasing what you no longer need. The universe is a glorious union, a flow made of up lots of cells like the human body each different, unique, but part of the one flowing system. The natural flow brings to people what they need. You are a channel for life when the flow moves more freely through you. Things will come to you as you need them, and sometimes even in advance. Sometimes you’ll be the receiver and sometimes you’ll be the giver. 

If you haven’t already done so recently, it is time to clear out your home. Starting with the bedroom, go through closets, drawers, cupboards… Empty each area at a time.  Fix or dispose of anything broken or that doesn’t make you feel good and get rid of everything you no longer need or use.  

Have 4 bags;      

  • For giving to friends and family
  • For charity
  • For selling
  • For recycling/ disposal.

Also feel free to sell anything you wish, it does not have to be given away! This approach will clear many unnecessary things from your life.

Your mind will become clearer and brighter. Things you’ve been holding on to but no longer need or like also symbolise mental and emotional weights you are unnecessarily carrying.

With each material object you dispense of you will feel emotionally and mentally lighter.

With each area you tidy your mind will also feel lighter and function more clearly. Your mood will lighten. Inner Hero

Give yourself 1 -2 weeks for each room. Aim to enjoy the process.

You will find the opportunity to gift things you no longer require. When you release that which you no longer require, you create space. The universe is organised in a manner that it likes to fill space and will send more to you, what is sent to you now though will be more in alignment with who you currently are and not the old you.

If no one else has use for it, it is okay to recycle or dispose of it as rubbish. Consciously give it back to the universe with gratitude.

Your eyes, mind and heart will be more peaceful when there is tidiness and space surrounding you.

Make a plan now. Visualise it in your mind; the parts of the house, black sacks, emptying, tidying, and see the end result nice clear space that feels great.

Now you are ready to start! And when you get rid of the old stuff, remember new stuff more fitting for you will find a way to you. Below is a chart that can help.

Clear spaces, then maintain every 6 months for peaceful living. 

Enjoy the pleasure of the journey and tick as you complete each area.

Clear bedroom

  • Cupboards
  • Wardrobe
  • Under bed
  • Other

Clear living room

  • Shelves
  • Units
  • Rest of space

Clear kitchen

  • Cupboards
  • Fridge
  • Shelves
  • Other

Clear bathrooms

  • Cupboards
  • Bath/Shower/ Sink
  • Other

Clear other rooms

-

-

-

Clear outside house

  • Around doors
  • Garage
  • Other

Clear holiday space

-

Clear car

Other

Enjoyed it so far!?

You will when complete- guaranteed! May you enjoy each and every drawer you empty and repack, clothes that you fold and reorganise, item you no longer need that you give away, offerings that you give to charity, flower bed that you clear. Every time you enter a space may you feel the pleasure of the lighter and clearer space you are nurturing.

Why do a cleanse!?

I recently started on another cleanse. as this stage they are like second nature and not being on a cleanse has come more of a novelty than being on a cleanse! I love feeling well and it just becomes a natural happy way of life after a while. But I also enjoy throwing it all up in the air every now and then and seeing how things settle. Regularly at least twice a year I get the calling and so here I am again: Entering cleanse time!

My normal cleanse routine is written about a fair bit on this website. It includes taking the herbs as recommended by Dr Hulda Clark; wormwood, cloves and walnut hull tincture and two amino acids which support energy, rest and rejuvenation. These are taken for 4 -6 weeks in association with an alternative diet. The diet requires no sugar, dairy, wheat, white potatoes, white rice, yeast, mushrooms, fruit and honey.

This time I'm designing a cleanse to suit my needs. The first question  I asked myself yesterday was,

Why am I doing/committing to this cleanse?

For everyone the answer is different and there is no right or wrong, but I believe the answer is essential for finding one's motivation and to help enjoy the experience as much as possible.

I am doing this cleanse as I feel these practices will bring out the best in me and support a leap in awareness and reality that I feel is being offered to everyone this month. Do I have to give up sugar to do this? I hear myself ask. No I don't have to, but it will help take me to the next level in a good way - I can just feel it, so let's give it a go! 

Here is what I feel excited and guided to do. Daily I will:

That's it for now! 

Mid month feedback:

So today is the 13th and here is a bit of feedback for you. Giving up sugar has been great, it's not been that difficult (due to honey and fruit) and today I feel very well. Any discipline may take a few days or weeks to adapt to. I am loving the hour in nature each day. My center feels settled and I can return to feel this with greater ease. My mind feels sharper, energy level higher, emotional state today is excellent- peaceful, happy and content. I've been enjoying my special super tonic every morning- will blog on that next. Cut down on quantity of food (naturally) and joyful that there are another few weeks to see what happens. Maybe i'll even finish the project I'm working on!?

It's a big cleanse month for many, so good luck to all. May there be clarity as to why and may you be well guided and enjoy the journey and results. Much love, Orla

Orla LondonHi friends and new visitors! Welcome!

Here is a little video I made on Wednesday the 24th of June 2015 just after the summer solstice here in Ireland. Hope you get something from it!

It is helpful for increasing the feel good factor! Close your eyes, sit back and give it a go morning and night for  10  to 40 days and see how this impacts you! Less than 10 minutes this is enough to make a difference in one's life. Observe and make of an note of what shows up in your day to day life as you practice this! :) I'd love your feedback and please share if there are any other meditations/ info that you would like to hear more about.

Peace & love, Orla

Foods you can eat while on the cleanse!

Hi, here are some Food Guidelines and Suggestions for Dr Hulda Clark’s Parasite Cleanse.

These are just a guideline, please make informed healthy decisions for yourself! CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!

I find on the cleanse, that initially I have the first three days of transition, a little bit here and there is ok if it's in the fridge and it's going to go to waste and I feel like having it now, use it type of thing. I also may eat a fair amount at various stages depending on how I feel! This can help to smooth into the new phase of eating. Ideally, do not eat a lot late at night. The idea of breakfast to break - the - fast, so some form of stomach emptying is highly beneficial for your own healing. Don't go to bed starving! But a large decent breakfast will support you much more than a late night meal.

Quantity is not such a big deal and often in the past I've been known to  have five meals a day plus snacks to survive! Likewiise sometimes my body cuts right dow ad desires very little food. I trust my body to inform me of what I require. I also keep an eye on things and ensure I am supplying enough food to support the energy output required. Remember, just don't go to bed too stuffed!

It really depends on your body type. What I'm saying is don't go hungry, it's not about that. Be organised, stock up on nice healthy food, make good decent meals and bring nibbles or food with you if you are heading out for a while so you don't get stuck, e.g. nuts such as almonds (raw) seeds such as organic pumpkin and sunflower seeds, brown rice cakes or ryvita and hummus... Most people find they eat better than ever before!

I've seen hundreds of people go through this cleanse and one thing I've learned is that the best results come from those who are strict to the core with the diet and taking of the herbs. If you are going to do it, do it properly! On a more compassionate note, if you do slip up, don't give up! Get back on and keep going. In the past I slipped up but continued anyhow and then the next cleanse I did 6 months later was much easier as my mind was clearer that I wished to experience (out of curiosity as much as anything else) the best result possible!

I hope these pages are of some help. Good luck!

There are restaurants that cater for this type of food intake too.

In Dublin, Cornucopia, Wicklow Street and Blazing Salads, Drury St, Dublin 2 are both good options.

Around the country there are more and more fabulous conscious healthy eateries  and if you you know of one, please drop a note here and I will happily include it.

Back to business! Cleanse Foods:

Recommend dietary changes:

- Eliminate sugar

- Eliminate fruit

- Eliminate wheat

- Eliminate Dairy (cow products!)

- Eliminate coffee

- Eliminate vinegar and yeast (includes some breads, balsamic vinegar, pickled foods- Apple Cider Vinegar - such as Braggs ACV is the only exception here)


All these feed parasites- so during the cleanse you are ridding them from your body by:

- Starving them (by not feeding them),

- Taking herbs to eliminate them from your body.



healthy vegThe big important question! What can you eat!?


Here’s a general list of foods that are great for you and that you can eat plentifully during the cleanse:

Bread/sugar free/dairy free bread!

Spelt bread is great. Soul bakery make a brown spelt and white spelt bread which you can use, cost 3.99. Available in Super Value, Dunnes in and around Dublin as well as other shops. This is a usual in my diet though I must admit I always toast it as I think it tastes better (with avocado/ hummus or coconut oil which acts as a wonderful butter replacement).

Many farmers markets and other shops also supply various non wheat breads.

Bake your own which you can buy in a pack at the gluten free/special dietary section of the supermarket- if you are baking your own- you can try soy/almond/coconut/goatmilk instead of dairy. Although spelt has some gluten it is minimal and the body can usually deal with it quite easily.

Whatever bread you go for just remember that it is to be wheat free/ dairy free and sugar free!

Any lactose free milk - Soy Milk/ Almond milk/Rice milk. I tend to vary my milk supply each week depending on what calls me. Ensure the one you choose while on the cleanse is “unsweetened” as there can be a lot of sugar and sweeteners added to some milks. I particularly like “unsweetened” Almond Milk these days.

Occasional sweetener you can use after first 4 weeks: Stevia (buy online or in health store) This is a green leafy herb that is sweeter than sugar. It has not the same mass as sugar- which means it will not create the same effect when baking, however, you can add it into sauces or whatever you are cooking/baking for a sweeter effect. A little goes along way- it is way sweeter than sugar. A pinch or one drop is enough. It is actually good for your pancreas and doesn’t affect your blood sugar levels the same way sugar does.

Herbals teas are great-

  • green tea or mate for energy,
  • chamomile for relaxing your digestive system and sleeping,
  • mint for digestion and going to the loo,
  • nettle for cleansing, acidic blood and painful joints.
  • Sample plenty of teas while on the cleanse as they help you feel well and it’s a good time to experiment with new things.

Cheese and so on

Instead of cow based dairy products, try goat’s milk products instead, for example:

- There is a great range of goat’s cheeses available, including hard cheeses, feta, soft cheese and so on, (from lidl, supervalue…) Lidl and Aldi both do good quality tasty goats cheese. Lidl offer a lovely sliced hard goats cheese, this is lovely with some toasted spelt bread, with some coconut oil spread on it, heated as a toasted sandwich, then before serving add some fresh sliced cucumber and or spinach leaves for a healthy and tasty snack.

- Also halloumi (only when made from goat and/or sheep milk- check ingredients- not when cow’s milk is added), when heated, it doesn’t melt like traditional cheese and really is delicious in a salad.

Breakfast Ideas and Snacks:

  • Porridge- Oats are fine, mix with non-dairy milk, cinnamon, cloves and chai spices add delicious flavour.Popeye1
  • Nonsweetened millet puffs, brown rice puffs or spelt puffs (from health store) with almond milk- very tasty
  • Scrambled eggs on spelt toast
  • Avocado on ryvita crackers, sliced tomatoes on toast with spinach and goats chese

Eggs: Boiled, poached, scrambled

Avocados

Tomatoes –

All on spelt toast with a sprinkle of salt

Or Ryvita crackers

Or brown rice cakes

Or multigrain cakes (like rice cakes from Aldi)

Delicious Salads

yum dinnerTry a salad at any time of day- also fantastic for breakfast - and gives the body great morning energy- that will be seen in your glowing skin.

Choose a combination of any salad foods including the above and

Lettuce

All green leaves

Cucumber

All salad food-

Beetroot ( non-vinegar- available Aldi)

Hummus

Grated raw carrot and raw beetroot with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper- delicious!

Goats cheese

Almonds/ walnuts/ macademia nuts…

Salad Nicoise- Lettuce leaves, olives, soft boiled eggs, flakes goat cheese.

Chicken/prawn/tofu Caesar Salad. Green leaves, flakes of hard goats cheese, olive oil combined with some bbq/grilled.... prawns/ chicken or tofu.

Warm grilled Goats cheese salad- Salad leaves with some beetroot, almonds and warm grilled goats cheese.

Walnut, Pear and Goats cheese Salad; green leaves, use just a quarter of a pear cut into tiny pieces of you require something sweet, lots of walnuts, and warm grilled goats cheese and lots of fresh leaves.

Grilled Halloumi ( as long as no diary!) on a bed of salad with any of the above ingredients.

Courgette, goats cheese and basil Frittata- Use some garlic when frying courgette- delicious with salad.

Brown Rice               - instead of white rice

Sweet potatoes         - Very tasty cut into wedges and baked in the over, they take a while to cook but taste sensational. Not for everyday but can have twice a week or so. Instead of regular potatoes. If you must eat a regular potato, the best way is baked in the oven as it releases less sugar into the system.

All vegetables (not too much corn or carrots as can be sweet- but a bit is fine)

Make/bake bread/ scones/ pizza bases etc- (Use spelt or look up gluten free, dairy free, sugar free recipes online- there are loads, sure try some out).

Meat/ chicken/ fish/ Tofu (if you eat them!) all fine- bbq or cook how you like and eat with salad/ veg/ sweet potatoes/ brown rice/

Instead of regular pasta, eat brown rice pasta/ vegetable pasta/ spelt pasta... Very tasty

Idea:

Mix fried onion with “Braggs amino spray”(from the store), add broccoli, chopped up mushrooms, add half a cup of hot water mixed with a teaspoon bullion, add salt and pepper, served on a bed of spelt pasta with grated or flakes of goats cheese.

Try quinoa- its’ a South American grain instead of rice or as another option- instead of couscous- it’s really nice, slightly nutty like yourself and has protein in it which is great for giving you energy- can have it with stir fry or cold with salad. Try cooking it in vegetable stock (bouillon) or season well as it carries flavor nicely.

Snacks:

walnuts hazelnuts and almonds 440282Raw nuts might become one of your close friends;- Almonds, hazelnuts (go organic if you can, otherwise, Aldi provide affordable options). Stay away from roasted, heavily salted and moldy nuts!

Ryvita crackers, avocado...

Any crackers that are wheat free, sugar free and dairy free. – Ryvita is the main one.

Almond and all nut butters are delicious ( go oraganic - health stores sell a large organic peanut butter at quite good value).

Coconut oil- again available in Dunnes, and Super Value and health stores,- use instead of butter. Very nice on crackers or toast.

Try rice cake with coconut oil with avocado and sprinkle of salt and pepper for yummy tasty treat.



Try Ryvita crackers with almond butter and thinly sliced strawberry (once a week- no more than two strawberries!)


Add cinnamon- 2 teaspoons a day reduces sugar cravings massively and is good for you..

Sugar-  a teaspoon of cinnamon daily  and or/ 15 mls of apple cider vinegar in hot or cold water also helps to sort out sugar cravings and cleanse your body. Also supplement with extra fish oil/ flaxseed oil – (3 – 4 capsules daily). Some people have even come out of Type two Diabetes this way

Bon Appetit!


Thank you! Cornucopia Restaurant in South Wicklow street caters specifically for this type of food. It is a vegetarian restaurant has all the foods marked dairy free/ sugar free…etc. It has one of the tastiest fresh salad selections in Ireland and over all delicious food and cakes. A nice tofu salad in yammamouri is also quite super delicious. Japanese food can make it quite easy to abide by these food guidelines too. Let me know if you come across any other places/foods worth mentioning! Thank you.

Sleep like a baby!

Welcome to the most powerful sleep support product I have ever discovered!

I first came across it as part of the Dr Hulda Clark Parasite Cleanse programme. I'm not joking when I tell you that the first night I took it, I slept more deeply than I had in years! Plus, I didn't even have a sleeping problem to begin with! It's just that with the Ornithine, my sleep was deeper, and when I awoke I felt more rested and stronger.

I couldn't believe that for all the years I'd been working in the health industry I hadn't heard of it.

I wasn't sure If it was just I so I shared it with some others eager to try it too, and they reported the exact same findings as myself!!! Unbelievably good rest. It said it was non-addictive, but I wasn't sure how I would be able to let go of something that had me feeling so good every morning!

Well 4 weeks passed and suddenly I didn't feel such a desire for it any longer. Now I take it whenever I feel like it or that it would be beneficial. I go months without taking it and it's pretty much a similar story for my customers. They take it when they feel the need and that's it.

One thing I did observe was that for 1 in 10 who tried it, it didn't make much of a difference. But a 90% success rate is massive and worth sharing. It is such a great feeling to wake up strong, happy, well rested and full of energy that I wanted to share this with you and ask you to please share this with anyone you think maybe interested. 

At just 25Euros for a bottle of 100 capsules it also very reasonably priced.

Ornithine and buddha

"L-Ornithine is an amino acid that is often used by bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts to produce the Human Growth Hormone (HGH) from the pituitary gland. L-Ornithine supplementation is meant to assist in the production of urea which is necessary for body detoxification purposes. Because L-Ornithine helps release the HGH hormones, it can help the body with the metabolism of fat and cell rejuvenation. A combination of the amino acids L-Ornithine and L-Arginine have been shown to assist in increased muscle strength."

To summarise, Ornithine helps with:

  • deep slee
  • metabolism of fat
  • cell rejuvenation
  • detoxification 
  • liver support

Wowsers, aren't you surprised and perhaps even excited to try it for yourself!?
