I take collostrum for the good health benefits. But post surgery i was going to need some more umph in my diet to help recover better, faster, stronger. The Goat protein is new and i was interested in it since its better for you than cows milk. Colostrum helps with your gut, growth hormones healthy repair of tissue. The elk velvet helps with some growth hormones as well. Since I'm kinda stuck at home for a few weeks the D3K2 is good for not getting enough sunlight. You need the K2 to properly absorb the D3 in supplement form. The Bone broth protein is packed with 15 grams of glucosamine, chondroitin and other good joint/bone repair minerals. Colostrum from a good reputable dealer isnt cheap but its well worth the benefits it gives you. It makes any smoothie taste that much better. #surthrival#colostrum

We are super excited 😍 to announce the arrival of @surthrival products 🌿 to our humble little Cave!
Surthrival specialise in the cream of the crop when it comes to high end superfood supplements, similar to @superfeast but with a different extraction and delivery method for their tonics, we have Brough in a cross section of the range with more to come:
- Colostrum 🐄 a delicious creamy powder you can add to coffees, smoothies & have on its own, this is the ultimate gut health and immunity product😷. Also helps with workout recovery 🏋️♀️ similar to good ol glutamine and stacks perfectly with your daily scoop of glutamine for overall gut and immunity excellence 🤩.
- Elk Antler Velvet tincture 🦌 Similar to @superfeast deer antler velvet however the Russian extraction process used 🇷🇺 which has active ingredients isolated and suspended in grape alcohol 🍇 for sublingual absorption (and bonus fresh breath). This is not better then Superfeast’s velvet this is simply just a different option which may be more convenient to administer for some, may be less preferred for others. The effects are slightly different as it’s coming from a different animal with a different process but I have to say I’m feeling it after the first dose similar to how I felt Superfeast’s velvet. I have more energy, better mood l, and I feel like my natural test is through the roof, I struggle to believe there are actually three grades of this stuff in their range and this is be “base model” I cannot imagine the gold 🥇and platinum🥈strength level!
- Pure Potency Pine Pollen extract 🌲 There is only one other natural extract that can compare to the power of a true quality deer antler for boosting Jing energy (life force) testosterone and overall vitality. As you might have guessed that is like pollen extract, rich in naturally occurring androsterone & DHEA pine pollen at this level of extract is thought to be an option for people considering hormone replacement therapy in their older age. What’s great about this extract is the addition of nettle root and Eleuthero root to protect the prostate and support more “free test”

As autumn turns to winter...and a soggy one so far, weather proof clothing becomes an essential item of carried or worn kit. With the higher spec weather proof jackets and smocks often referred to as ‘technical garments’, DIY kit makers might feel that a good protective, outer layer is beyond their capabilities, most likely created by scientists under laboratory conditions, using space age technology. Often the price tag seems to back this up! However, if you know your way around a sewing machine and you’re prepared to have a go, it’s perfectly possible to put together your own gear. Waterproof and breathable fabric, waterproof zips, velcro, shockcord, strong plastic buckles and toggles, even iron on tape for sealing seams....all these are available online and are relatively inexpensive. Making up your own outdoor kit is a project you can really get your teeth into! Additionally, if you have your own ideas and requirements or you fancy mixing and matching features from several different off the shelf garments, you can! Completely bespoke gear made by your own fair hand....you’ll actually be wishing for rain... The making of this waterproof and breathable smock was featured in one of the early editions of the excellent online magazine, The Bushcraft Journal. It’s lightweight, effective, simple and packs down small. I was keen to improve rain shedding ability by minimizing the number of seams around the shoulders and upper arms. This worked well but I’ve since added underarm gussets for improved range of movement (and also a chest pocket while the smock was unpicked down each side). @thebushcraftjournalmagazine
#trichotillomania came up on the walk to school and opened a can of deep shit in the 17 minutes we had to talk about it because we’re grown now and when it comes to small talk i guess this is how we do it 🌿 i can speak on it because i fought a battle similar to it with some chronic nail & skin biting i discovered was dermatophagia when i finally, years later, put a name to it: from the #BFRB family of #self flagellation linked, of course, to #anxiety & #depression 🖤🖤 rooted in a #childhood that #shortstoryversion was complex and... challenging 👊🏿 i found my way out a few years ago thanks to #stressmanagement & #counselling and, weird af though it is, also due to 🚹 leaving 🤷🏽♀️ the most stressful period of my #LiFE but when the door closed behind him i never touched my hands again 💝 not. one. more. time: side note 2.5 years free and i would still describe myself as recovering, like any addiction we are always vulnerable to slipping back into the depths of them 🕳 i get by with a practice of #💅🏿 #selfcare + #selfloving and where once i saw only shame and fear and worry and scars and *tears* (read both ways) now i see courage, Hope and #healing in their place: gifts 🎁 of #surviving the #madness with #strength and with #grace #💃🏿
Our physical eyes tell much of us to outer world but the "wandering eye" known as our Vagus nerve tell us much about our inner world.
Our gut feelings and visceral responses often start in our gut and are transferred to our brain. Our internal world is soothed or startled by information traveling along this "wandering eye". Sarah Fenix Telepathic Oracle and I will open a safe space and guide you through yoga and shamanic chanting into a realm of possibility to release the large muscle (Psoas) that is in direct conversation with the Vagus Nerve so that your inner and outer can open up space to reflect your True Self.

The challengers return! ...to a cooked breakfast, cup of tea and a debrief. It's good to go back over the weeks events as a group because although this lot have been living wild in the same area, their challenge has been a solo one. Also good to remind them of what they've achieved! At first light on Monday they set off for a remote patch of woodland carrying only their clothing (wool and cotton), a knife, pocket saw, billycan, some strong cord and a few safety related items (first aid kit, torch, map, comms and journal). Whatever they were missing from their kit had to be found, foraged or made from the surrounding woods - shelter, warmth, water and food. To do all that as an individual is hard graft but to come out smiling, rested and better off than when they went in is an amazing achievement! Well done all
Made it again to the spring to get me and my family some water. How many spiders 🕷 can you see?
I managed to fill up my water bottles without destroying their intricate webs. Had literally been talking this afternoon about spiders 🕷 as a power animal and here they were.
Spider venom comes in many forms. It can often take a long while to discover the full effects of the bite. Naturalists have pondered this for years: there are spiders whose bite can cause the place bitten to rot and to die, sometimes more than a year after it was bitten. As to why spiders do this, the answer is simple. It's because spiders think this is funny, and they don't want you ever to forget them.
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys
The spider is a remarkable figure of feminine energy and creativity in the spirit animal kingdom. Spiders are characterized by the skilled weaving of intricate webs and patience in awaiting their prey. By affinity with the spider spirit animal, you may have qualities of high receptivity and creativity. Having the spider as a power animal or totem helps you tune into life’s ebbs and flows and ingeniously weave every step of your destiny.
Common meanings for the spider spirit animal or totem are:
Weaver of life’s fate
Shadow self, dark aspects of life or personality
The spider as a spirit animal offers many interpretations. Its symbolism has both a dark and a light side, reflecting its connection with life’s many facets.
Spider spirit animal: Symbol of creativity
In many cultures, the spider is given credit for its ability to weave intricate webs that are a miracle of organic engineering. If you have the spider as an animal spirit guide, you may have an affinity with acts of creation and the ability to create delicate, intricate things or ideas that are also strong.
As the weaver of the web, the spider symbolizes the spirit of creation. In several traditions, she’s the totemic symbol of the Mother, strong feminine energy. In Ancient Egypt, the spider was used as a symbol to represent the goddess of the Divine Mother, Neith.

We have a choice, 5D or 5G
Did you know that The Pleiadians, lovingly referred to as the P's, have predicted that one day under the cover of night, we will be taking these cell towers down? As we learn, as we awaken, as we are more and more enlightened and as we connect our hearts and we stay focused within our heart on what matters most, we will see the error in our ways and we will no longer be fooled into distractions such as 5G as we emerge fully in 5D connection and pesence #ichoose5d#chooselife#surthrival#weareone#cometogether#healthynervoussystem#cbd#hemphealth
Hurricanes got you leaving town? Place a cup of water in your freezer. Allow it to freeze. Place a coin on top of the ice. When you return home, you will be able to tell if your freezer has lost power by taking note of whether the coin is still on top of the ice. If power was out for an extended period, the ice will melt and the coin will sink. Using this hack may help you determine if your meats are still safe to consume. And if there's any question, refer to the golden rule: "When in doubt, Throw it out". Stay safe, fancy friends. #hurricaneprep#protip#evacuation#hurricaneflorence#stormseason#preparedness#hurricane#lifehack#surthrival
On nasty rainy days like today I’m extra grateful for my Daylight Concentrate vitamin D3 + K2 supplement from @surthrival! This supplement is a great value, has a nice peppermint flavor from peppermint essential oil, & contains the most bioavailable vitamin D3 I have found. I am not paid to promote this brand. Just wanted to share the love with ya! I suggest all the men out there check out Surthriva’s pine pollen products which contains androgenic testosterone! Pine pollen has been used since ancient times to naturally balance hormone levels, increase vitality & virility as we age. Trust me, this stuff works! I’m about to order some more Pine Pollen Pure Potency to reap those amazing benefits. Big shout out to @danielvitalis for creating such high quality products! I am forever grateful for the work that you do! Check out his Rewild Yourself podcast to learn more about the Surthrival product line, rewilding, and the modern day hunter gatherer lifestyle. His podcast has been pivotal in my healing, growth, and transformation over the past year. It also helped me find other inspiring people and beneficial products. ✌🏼
Friends, last year I was at an all time low. Struggling through grief & scared of everything. I’d lost the ground beneath me & nothing made sense anymore.
And, as soon as I’d get my footing and start feeling hopeful again, Anxiety would barge in and tell me not to get too comfortable, not to believe my own positive thinking & that letting myself heal was evidence that I’d stopped feeling.
It was all lies.
I started working on a series of drawings that I planned to turn into a graphic novel. I thought maybe making art about my depression & anxiety would help me and that maybe it would help someone else. But then my Anxiety told me no one would care or worse, it would scare people away from me or give people a reason to discount me & my value.
So I scrapped my plans & kept it all to myself.
And then I wrote a letter to @myfavoritemurder, that I never imagined would be read by more than 3 people... and people all over the world heard it. And they came to find me. And tell me they knew exactly how I felt.
And I knew for sure that Anxiety was a Liar.
SO, I resurrected my project, because I never should’ve shelved it to begin with. There will be more of these ahead & I hope they speak to you.
Prints in various colorways are in my shop now. And check my stories for a Society6 code to get 30% off mugs & whatnot today only. And later today I’ll be releasing the wallpaper version of this for my Patreon patrons.
Happy Monday, friends. Keep fighting the good fight.
Love & light ✨💛✨
(Check out the spooky cool version of this quote that @i.drink.tea posted last week after the minisode my letter was in & the conversation that grew from it. I love Murderinos using art & design & creativity to process their truths. We’re the coolest)

There is one major principle when it comes to your human self and your pursuit of things
If you want to make progress in an area you need to remove the threats that have your body in protection mode
Progressive Overload is a beautiful thing which involves doing more, exposing the body to stressors within a range that is healthy for us, creating stepping stones to success
But there's the 'via negativa' way of doing things which is to strip things away that are not only useless, but counterproductive and even full on roadblocks
The truth is also that most people simply need to remove the stressors but choose to add things in instead
What's causing your body to feel a threat right now?
How would you feel if you removed it?
How can you go about removing it?
Creating safety gives you the luxury of finding novel threats, ones that could be a eustress (healthy stress)
Whereas having no sense of safety keeps us in threat mode
You want to get out of survival mode and into Surthrival
Yeah, I said it #Surthrival#AMFitness#MovementIs#Safetyforprogress#TheMainPrinciple#PrincipleBased#NotResultsBased#ViaNegativa
This evening a client and I were talking about what it means "to live." #
I think everyone has their own definition of what it means to live a full life. What thriving looks like versus just surviving.
Cause, let's be honest, we can't be on vacation 24-7. We still have responsibilities. But we definitely can squeeze a few minutes of "life" into each day.
Sometimes that is as simple as a moon light walk with your dog, followed by a glass of wine, a bowl of peanut butter and chocolate chips and a good book.
Cheers to the simple moments that make life worth living. 🍷
Sweet summertime in the hills. This is what 7.5lbs of feral cherries look like on a bright smiling gal before pitting and drying them in the sun. Like finding wild cherries, life can be unexpectedly sweet 🎈 #ratherhuntgather#surthrival#wildwomen
Since the dawn of large scale agriculture, humans have slowly lost the health our ancestors once possessed. One must ask themselves if modern day agricultural is a means to control our diet and health. For instance, wheats and sugars (high glycemic carbs) are the two major crops destroying both nature and our health. Large scale agriculture makes it possible to rule over large amounts of people while simultaneously keeping them malnourished and engaged in a system that doesn't care about their health or soul. Sustainable organic local farming and agriculture working together with the soil and animals is beneficial to us, the animals and the plants. The whole point of caring for yourself and caring for the plants and animals is to have a spiritual relationship with them, which includes raising them humanely and honoring their lives through sacrifice to conscious humans which makes the world a better place for all . Hunting is a key aspect of life and rite of passage we have lost touch with. It gives death meaning and instills an understanding and respect for the animals we otherwise wouldn't know or understand.

I never made my summer #surthrival guide because I have been following my number one rule, Be Flexible! Basically I feel like Stretch Armstrong. Also this was such a rookie mistake, a mom of six kids should know paint must be immediately put in an upper cabinet after the kids are done using it🤦🏻♀️! #atleastigotthiscutevideo#summersurthrival
