Audible Recommendation – The Healing Power of Ayahuasca by Marc McLean

Back around April time this year I started to listen to “The Healing Power of Ayahuasca” by Marc McLean.  This book looks at 16 different accounts where people had been failed by western medicine and they decided to turn to the mysterious plant medicine Ayahuasca.

Ayahuasca the hallucinogenic plant medicine that has been used for thousands of years in the Amazonian jungle.

Marc McLean talks about how the medicine saved him at the lowest point of his life. Ayahuasca gifted him a level of emotional and psychological healing he’d never have achieved in a lifetime of therapy.

The 16 people share how they have healed a multitude of illnesses and issues through ayahuasca, including PTSD, depression, sexual abuse trauma, eating disorders, crippling fear, chronic health problems and more.

Ayahuasca helps people to discover who they really are.

Ayahuasca is generally not something that pops up in every day conversation and is not something that a lot of people tend to know about. I did not know anything about it until the start of the year but now it seems to come up in a lot of conversations I have and I have even been shown retreats to go to in order to experience the medicine. Ayahuasca is something that is getting more popular as more people are looking towards alternative medicines rather than western medicine.

Even if you know nothing about Ayahuasca I would recommend this book as the stories are so inspiring and it shows you the power the medicine can have and how it can help to improve so many lives.

Fruit and Nut Mix

Ingredients

50g Walnuts

50g Almond Flakes

50g Pecan nuts

50g Pumpkin Seeds

50g Sunflower Seeds

100g Goja Berries

Instructions

1 – Add the Almond flakes, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and goja berries in to the bowl.

2- Chop the walnuts and pecan nuts finely and add to the mixture

3- Mix thoroughly

4- Weigh into 40/50g portions depending on personal preference. I personally weigh then into portions of around 45g

This will usually make around 8/9 portions.

I enjoy snacking throughout the day, so this fruit and nut mix is perfect for me as it provides with lots of nutrients but also tastes delicious. I usually weight out my mix on a Sunday ready for the week, so I have one every day and then a couple extra just in case. Usually I eat them in the morning and will occasionally have one at night when I have a sugary craving instead of grabbing a chocolate bar.

Audible Recommendation – Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday

I recently listened to Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday on audible.

The book talks about our most common enemy; the ego. The book looks at how our ego is holding us back in every day life.

The books talks about arrange of people journeys to success by conquering their own egos. The book helps to show you how your own ego is getting in the way of your success and future.

I found this book really interesting and really enjoyed the use of other peoples stories to show how powerful the ego can be. It made me realise that even in the smallest of situations your ego can still take over and hold you back.
