Now of course there are 1000s of ways to let go of fear but these are the ways that came through yesterday!
I was doing things around the house yesterday and all of a sudden did not feel good.
So I laid down and instantly got the message I needed and was guided to share.
What I didn’t realize until later was that I felt 1000 times better after receiving and sharing the message!
Spirit is cool like that sometimes. Be sure to listen when you can to your own inner guide, intuition, nudges from spirit! If you don’t, they often get very loud!
Check out the video below for the longer version of the 5 ways to let go of fear and be sure to comment on any others you think are helpful!
During these crazy and trying times or when you start to get on your path, in your purpose or just begin to live your truth it can be scary! Lots of stuff can come up and IS coming up! Shifting from this energy to a higher vibrational state ALL WHILE OWNING, ACKNOWLEDGING AND BEING WITH WHAT IS is what’s up.
Here are the 5 ways in a quick, short summary:
Own where you are in victim mode and fear and woe is a self-fulfilling prophecy
Own where there is actual REAL fear and work to shift that
Have fun, change up your energy (get out of your head)

Today’s video and blog is brought to you by some of the experiences in my life which have really woken me up.
So am I woke?
But I have been awakened by many a life experience!
And feel that there is the possibility of an activation process that has occurred and IS occurring for all of us (more on that another time).
We are in a wild time and I hope today’s video helps you in some way, whether it is just entertainment, some inspiration or just you seeing that if I, a 50 yo woman, can get out there and do a project she is passionate about, so can you!
It’s so important that more of us are living in our purpose and passionately (more on that in the video).
My goal is to create helpful & motivational (and occasionally entertaining) content that inspires you to step into your power, purpose and light. We need you! The world needs more people doing what they love, healing themselves and shining bright.
Onto today’s topic!
DMT is a chemical compound in the brain.
Often times released when we do psychedelics.
It can actually be accessed & released naturally as well IMO.
Check out my video below and hear a little bit about my journey to this place where I am accessing the feeling of DMT release NATURALLY on a pretty regular basis and how you can too!
Frankly, it feels like a miracle!
I cannot believe I forgot to add this tip in:
OMG breathwork is a very very VERY powerful tool that can help you get into a higher consciousness, higher vibe state. Check out all things Wim Hof for more on that.

Read the recipe, exactly as I did it and then be sure to read the notes to see where you can make changes you feel are necessary for your taste.
If you are looking for a lil snack and to get those MCFAs in, these are real good.
But if you are looking for a treat, these need more sugar and moisture, for example, the cacao butter with it’s high melting temp, makes them harder then I would like.
MCFAs are amazing in general, click here for 20 benefits of coconut oil and medium chain fatty acids (which coconut oil is rich in). We are looking to add these to our diet so I am always looking for ways to get the coconut oil in without adding it to cooking all the time, which I think makes everything taste coconut oily. Icky, IMHO. So jamming it into some treats is what I’d rather do.
Give ’em a try and be sure to let me know what you think and how it goes!
Adrock’s Coconut Lemon Bars
1 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup cacao butter, melted
juice of 2 lemons or 1 T organic lemon zest or 20 drops lemon essential oil
pinch sea salt
1 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup agave or honey (or use stevia to taste)
Melt cacao butter & coconut oil on very low heat. Turn heat off just before everything is melted and let the rest melt off heat. Once it is all melted, add in sweetener of choice, lemon & sea salt. Whisk gently making sure to combine all ingredients.
In a 9X9 glass baking dish place the coconut flour and shredded coconut and mix with a fork.
Now add the melted mixture to the coconut mixture in the 9X9 dish. Mix everything together with a fork. Taste. Add more ingredients (i.e. lemon or sweetener) to your taste.
Place in freezer and allow to freezer for at least one hour.
Take out of freezer and make sure mixture is frozen solid.
Cut into 1″ squares and store in the refrigerator.
Mine turned out hard and not lemony enough, therefore I would do a less cacao butter to coconut oil ratio.
I would eliminate the coconut flour (husband said it made it a bit gritty) or just add less, I thought it would make a great binder.
A few days after I made these, we took a few out for a snack and one stayed in our warm car for about an hour. Ah! This was the moist bar I was looking for! Palm hits face. A more room temp bar is going to be more like a lemon bar you might eat at a cafe. Not exactly of course but just softer and easier to eat! I like them out of the fridge but this was a great lil find by accident!
With recipes like this, you are never going to know the perfect ratio of ingredients until you experiment. Especially with your own individual taste. More or less lemon? Only you know! You may like these a little hard or you may prefer them softer. Whatever your preference, be sure to let us know how they turn out!

I like to mix up ingredients and not always use the same things when I cook, especially bake.
I had recently bought some sprouted spelt flour and coconut sugar.
Craving brownies last night, I realized I had all the ingredients for some ‘healthy wellness’ brownies and gave it a try.
‘Healthy wellness’ is what my oldest daughter has called everything I make like this since she was 6.
Me: Hey! I made brownies!!
Her: Oh what are they healthy wellness brownies?? Ewww
LOL. Good times.
Well these healthy wellness brownies turned out pretty good!
They are not super sweet (which is both good and bad :D) and they are very moist (hello, lots of butter).
My advice to you is to give this recipe a try and play around with the ingredients. Adding and subtracting things to your taste & degree of ‘healthy wellness’ desire.
Spelt Flour ‘Healthy Wellness’ Brownies by Adrienne
1 1/4 cup spelt flour
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 t. vanilla
4 oz chocolate, melted
6 oz butter, melted
1/4 t baking powder
pinch sea salt
walnuts to add to top, optional
Whisk eggs, sugar & vanilla.
2. Combine flour, baking powder & sea salt.
3. Melt butter & chocolate.
Once butter & chocolate are melted and not super hot, add a little bit of this mixture to the eggs & sugar at a time. Once the mixture is ‘tempered’ add in the rest of the butter & chocolate, whisking to combine well. Next, add in the flour mixture, combining it all with a spatula being mindful not to over mix.
Butter a 9 X 9 inch pan and add your brownie mix in. Add walnuts to the top if desired.
Bake at 350 for approximately 20 minutes.
Check middle to see if a knife comes out clean, if not, cook another 5 minutes or so.
Here are some of the ingredients I used:
Give it a try and be sure to let me know how it goes!
Do you plan on changing any ingredients?
I’d love to hear of any ‘healthy wellness’ adventure!
Please share on your socials!
Want more from me? Ok, cool!
But listen, I have boundaries (well, more like boundary issues) but would love to connect with you, here’s how!
I have been thinking a lot about TRUE health, how to heal & how to give oneself the care one REALLY needs.
Are we taught this?
Oh hells no.
So often we can be put in situations where we HAVE to figure out how to truly care for ourselves & then we can feel like maybe it’s too late….
How do we create health NOW for the present & the future?
It is such an individual thing and so very different for everyone.
You’ve heard the stories of miraculous healings after a horrible diagnosis and you’ve heard the opposite.
I know I don’t want to wait for my health to fail before I decide to really take care of myself.
And I know one thing for sure…
Stress is the killer of hopes & dreams & immunity (and more).
I personally feel that reducing & even eliminating stress is where the majority of true healing can begin.
We are told (or believe or think or absorb) that we need to GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGO at all cost. For success, for money, for prestige, for our own ego gratification.
But does it work?
Hmmmmmm, sometimes YES. It actually does. Say you have a goal & in order to create that goal, you need to get out of your comfort zone, take a second job, push yourself through those exhausted moments. BUT. If you are so beyond excited for this goal and you feel (and truly know) that this is your path, this does not have to be detrimental to your health. It may even be healthy for you! Considering NOT doing it would ‘hurt’ you more.
But I digressed a bit just to be sure to make the point that this is a different journey for all.
I have been pushing myself quite a bit lately. In a panic. In stress. In fear.
I know intuitively that this does not work for my physical, emotional or spiritual well being. Why do I still do it? Why do any of us still do it?
Probably because it is deeply embedded in our physical, emotional & spiritual bodies.
Can we trust that if we slow down everything will still work out?
I have had clear and very obvious signs & experiences that that slowing down (mentally & physically) truly and really works.
I’ve slowed down. I’ve taken care of myself. I’ve stopped worrying. I’ve mantra-ized things like ‘I am enough’ ‘I do enough’ ‘All is truly well’ until I believe them.
And it works, like, really works!
But then I fall back in to old patterns. They seem to hold stronger than new ones.
It’s sooooooooooooooooo frustrating.
I was in a nursing home recently where I walked by room after room of elderly folk, just laying in beds, and it freaked me out quite a bit.
I do not want that. I want a long, thriving, fun life. Sure, if I need some care or hospice or whatever in those final days, ok, but not 15 years of it. I’m not having it.
And I felt, deeply felt, THEN START NOW.
Start creating the feelings, the energy, the actually experience, of amazing health now.
For me, it is all about (at least partially, and a large part at that) cultivating the feeling I get when I do my favorite thing.
Laying in the grass, looking up at the sky & doing nothing. Or by the water. I probably should be living at the beach!!
I love doing this something crazy. But I often feel guilty for just laying around. Maybe it’s because I’m thinking I should be doing, being, creating more.
Also, deep in side I’m all, ‘can I make money at this?’ Ugh, probably not.
BUT! Can I do something that ‘feels’ like this? Cultivates this feeling of wonder, magic & relaxation? Can I just do this type of thing more often even while I work or do whatever?
You know it.
This is what I loved to do as a child, often laying around with others, laughing, telling stories, sharing thoughts.
And this is what I want to do now.
And whilst, no, I cannot make money at this, I sure can feel healthier doing it & look for things in life that feel like laying in the grass, looking up at the blue sky, doing nothing. It’s such a peaceful feeling.
This is a big part of having a long, healthy life. Doing what you love to do. Doing what you loved to do as a child. Cultivating that exact (or as close as possible) feeling if you can’t actually do that thing ALL the time.
So what do you love doing? What did you love doing as a child?
Do more of that.
Begin your health & amazing life’s journey with that goal in the forefront of your mind.
Tell me (and us) how it goes or what it is or how you’re going to do it or how you ARE doing it?
There are, of course, plenty of ways to be healthy & destress but this is one that has been on my mind of late (like A LOT). So I wanted to share that today.
Feel free to share others ways to cultivate health, healing & a long, happy life.
This past Sunday was opening day at the South End Open Markets in Boston, Ma.
Every Sunday, May through October, venders of all kinds share their art, food, crafts, jewelry & more.
I went out with a friend on Sunday as part of my #52Restaurants project & we were excited to hit the market as part of our day.
The weather was not great but we walked through the market around 2:30pm & things were still cookin’ even with the threat of some serious rain.
I loved walking around seeing everyone’s stuff.
People’s creativity never ceases to amaze me.
When I left I thought a lot about how all these amazing venders could get more biz.
It can be hard for small business to really get out there & get seen, known & loved.
And of course, make money!
But the South End Open Market creates huge exposure for them.
So important for small & creative businesses!
Many peeps/biz were giving samples of their food goods, which is great. You need to!
But how can other businesses get noticed too?
While it’s nice to look at stuff, I’m sure so many venders want to sell sell SELL!
I have some ideas on how to get people who are just walking around more interesting in what you have, what you are selling & who you are. You might not make a sale that very day but creating fans & potential buyers is where’s it’s at!
I hope these ideas help someone but if they aren’t something someone would do, maybe it will spark some ideas of their own!
8 marketing ideas for South End Market vendors
1. Get out in front!
I saw so many creative folk hiding in the back of their tents. You can see them ,of course & I doubt they were actually hiding but they were in the back & not ‘out there.’ Now, it was later in the day & things had slowed down a bit so maybe some were taking a break or sitting for a bit. That’s totes cool. But I do know creatives tend to be introverts & no doubt putting themselves out there at an open market takes a huge amount of energy & can be very draining. But kids, you are your biz! You’ve got to get out there & out front. Create the space so you are sitting in the front more. Get a stool so you can sit at the front. Whatever it is, be more visible & engage with the peeps as much as you can.
2. Have a sign up list & have your biz cards or postcards OUT!
I asked one lovely artist for a card because her pictures were gorgeous & she had to go digging for one.
Display your cards & get a clipboard or something more creative to make a list so people can get on your email list!
And be sure to tell them about it when they are milling about!
3. Have a contest, giveaway or incentive!
No one is all that excited to give out their email anymore so make it nice for them.
Sign up & get 20% off next time you are at the market or for our online shop!
Give one of your things away every month to people on your email list.
It may seem counter-intuitive to give stuff away or add more things to your to-do list but these days with everyone’s attention all over the place & tight wallets (even in an affluent Boston area) you’ve got to do something to get & keep your ideal customer’s attention.
4. More on the contest idea…
Maybe you don’t have an email list (you should, they are free & you can easily send one out monthly just to check in with people who are interested in your stuff! Tell them what’s new, how you are, WHERE you’ll be!) but you have some socials.
Do something like this:
When people enter your tent & are poking around, tell them that you are doing an Instagram contest where if they take a selfie with you, your stuff or just a picture of your stuff and hashtag it with your name or your product’s name or some creative hashtag you come up with they can win something.
I like this idea a lot.
It engages people, it’s fun, it will have people looking and wondering what’s happening over there & just think, people will be posting your picture & your product’s picture on their social. Maybe they have 1000+ followers. Maybe 50 people with hundreds of followers post a pic with your stuff….
You know what that is?
Don’t miss out on this opp, yo.
5. Have snacks
Sure there’s a gazillion food trucks at the open market but people love free food.
Have fun with it.
Bowls of gold fish, m & m’s and/or something fun related to your product, whatever.
Put any of these next to your biz cards & email sign up sheet.
There was music playing via a DJ which was very cool but if you’re a bit away from this, bring your boom box or some speaker for your phone & kick out some jams.
This creates a vibe & some ambiance making people stay longer & it can also invite them in!
You are a creative. Your job is to be creative. This marketing & putting yourself out there can just about push your little sensitive spirit right. over. the. edge.
SO HIRE SOMEONE TO DO THIS FOR YOU.
Pay someone to stand in the front of your tent, say hi to people, pass out info or samples or say ‘hey we are doing a super cool contest!’ etc etc
There are tons of college students studying PR & they’d be happy to make $50 (or less!) to help you & add this to their resume.
There are tons of doggies being walked around the market.
And people stop & chat & hang with their dogs & weirdos like me pet & talk baby talk to the dogs (don’t judge!).
Put out a water dish in the front of your tent.
How about a doggie treat? Put a tray of those out!
Maybe partner with a local doggie treat company to give samples of their stuff for free!
More people will be drawn to your tent & therefore SEE your stuff instead of just walking by.
There are so many more ideas to come up with.
When I left the market Sunday I was filled with so many! I loved so much of what I saw & would’ve totally signed up for emails, entered contests, posted pics.
Ok, have any other ideas you would share with a vender? Add some in the comments!
Do you know a vender?
Share some of these ideas with them!
Know someone at the South End Open Market?
I’d love to come do a free talk for the venders!
Just to cheerlead them along & share ideas & create ways for them to engage their audience, gain fans & of course, business & profits!
This stuff gets me all jazzed up.
Viva la creative entrepreneurs!
One of the coolest things I saw was the D-Grater.
With something like this you HAVE to be demoing.
And they were!
These cool plates grate garlic, ginger & more!
They all second as serving dishes.
I think they’re gorg & would make a perfect gift for yourself or your favorite foodie.
