Transformation ~ “A thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance.”
To say that Chaga has helped change my life, is saying it lightly.
In truth, Chaga has been the fundamental building block that comprises my overall well-being.
Chaga has transformed me inside and out.
As in all things us, we never perceive what is in our own best interest at the time.
So at the time, I could not have known that by making the decision to add such a simple component to my daily life, my whole way of living would be affected.
There are so many advantages to adding Chaga to your life, and lots of research and information out on the internet to support the nutritional benefits that Chaga provides.
So today, rather than just going over the many benefits of Chaga,
I would like to give you a clearer picture of just how Chaga helped transform my life.
Because I understand that although we have unique identities, and the details of our lives are different in many ways, ultimately we are more alike then different.
And so I also know, and trust, that in the same way that Chaga has helped me shift forward, it can do the same for you.
So let me share with you, what drinking Chaga daily has done for me.
Almost right away, I noticed a marked change in my ability to feel clear.
It was like a fine gauze lifted from my brain; a fogginess I hadn’t even realized was there.I suddenly felt mentally sharp, more agile in my thinking, and ability to process information. Overall, I felt more centered, less overwhelmed with my own emotions and with the details of my life.
Within a few days of drinking it, (and I’d like to add, that I love to do things fully, so I drink Chaga all through the day. I had…and to this day we continue to have, a hot pot of Chaga on our stove-top available for drinking all day long. Because Chaga has no saturation limit, I found that the more I drank, the better I felt.) I felt a noticeable increase in my energy, and a surprising decrease in my appetite. I felt less and less hungry.
But it was gradual, so with time, I noticed myself reaching more for the Chaga and less for snacks to satisfy my inner hunger.
This lead to a gradual, natural shift in my body composition, as excess weight began to dissolve and be released, as my body, little by little, let go the many toxins that had accumulated over time inside my cells, creating a new inner balance within me.
I noticed that my stomach began to regulate, and my ability to process and eliminate the food that I ate became regular and consistent.
This was a huge improvement in my life, as my stomach and digestion had become a regular problem and point of personal frustration.
I found my cravings for sugar decreased as the Chaga stabilised my insulin levels. And as a result, I no longer needed the daily over the counter pain medicine I had gotten accustomed to taking in order to manage my overall discomfort and pain.
Suddenly, and with little physical effort, I found myself full of energy and vitality. I felt an over all ‘better feeling’ as my whole body adjusted to this new, less toxic environment.
My body was shifting to match my new found mental vitality!
I think the important thing to highlight here, is that as my body detoxified and found a new harmonious balance, I was innately drawn in the direction of deeper self exploration to find balance in other ways, and in other areas of my life.
Chaga was the seed in fertile soil; the catalyst to my deepening inward exploration.
The gradual, gentle detoxification and balancing of my body allowed me the clarity of mind to finally manage and take hold of my thoughts and emotions, which ultimately make up the basis of who I am, and how my life evolves.
It gave me the motivation to strive further, and to adopt an overall healthier attitude towards my body, which opened more pathways and opportunities to better myself and improve the overall quality of my life.
Over the years, Chaga has become an integral and important part of our life, and we’ve found many fun and delicious ways to incorporate Chaga into our diets, with recipes that delight even the most finicky eaters.
I’d like to share with you our family favorite Extra Creamy Chaga & Cauliflower Soup, a recipe that will be featured in my upcoming book;
Chaga, Channeling & the Art of Intuitive Eating ~ A Chaga Cookbook for the Illuminated Soul
This extra creamy cauliflower soup is a powerhouse of goodness, made all the more special with the addition of Chaga and turmeric, making it one of the most delicious and effective ways to detoxify and nourish your whole family!
For this recipe you will need;
2-3 cups prepared Chaga tea
2 cauliflower heads
1 medium sweet onion
3 garlic cloves
1 medium carrot
½ tsp raw turmeric root, peeled & chopped
3 medium sized potatoes
1 TBSP organic coconut oil
1 TBSP organic butter
1 vegetable bouillon cube (We love the GoBio Organic Bouillon cubes)
2 cups cream, milk, or any dairy, non-dairy alternative (in a pinch, a can of evaporated milk works great!)
Salt & pepper to taste
1 ~Prepare and set aside 2 cups of Chaga tea, (we recommend brewing your Chaga in a large pot on your stove-top, making Chaga available to you and your family throughout the day; 1~2 tablespoons of fresh ground Chaga powder in a tea bag, to a large soup pot of spring water)
While hot, dissolve the vegetable bouillon in the Chaga tea, and set aside.
2~ Chop up Cauliflower and potatoes into small pieces, set aside.
3~ Place chopped onion, garlic, turmeric and butter into a large pot, and sauté over medium heat until the onions become translucent.
4~ Add chopped potatoes and cauliflower, and sauté for another 10 minutes, making sure that everything becomes evenly browned.
5~ Now add the remaining milk, coconut oil, and prepared Chaga broth, and turn up the heat to bring everything to a boil. (If you prefer a thicker soup, cut the amount of Chaga or milk you add).
6~ Turn down the heat to medium~low and allow to simmer until the cauliflower and carrots are very soft.
7~ Let cool slightly, and puree with a hand blender until no lumps remain.
*If you decide to use a blender, or food processor, remember to let your soup cool all the way. Remove from the stove and allow to fully cool, otherwise it will create a creamy soup mess all over you and your counter.
Add Salt & Pepper to taste, and Enjoy!
Ultimately we are the only ones who either allow or reject something, and no one can ever ‘make us’ do anything that we ourselves don’t want to do. So no manner of convincing on my part will fully move you unless you so want to be moved.
Therefore, I can only speak form my own personal positive experience, and of that of all those who have also chosen to add Chaga, or any other positive modality into their lives.
Once that choice is made, the positive momentum it creates in your life will far outweigh the initial hesitation to ‘try something new’.
So take the plunge, and give yourself permission to try something new.
And just like me…you might discover, that you did not see the full potential of this new component in your life.
All the best to you, and enjoy your Chaga!
