So many things have been happening on this planet since 2020 but there are other big problems that have been around for a long time. Only now are we finally accepting the damages it is causing our planet and future.  Have you taken a walk outside through a beautiful park or along the beach and notice a trail of trash littered around you? I've seen bottles, bags, clothes, wrappers even furniture, baby chairs, and plastic toys. It makes me sad especially when there is a garbage can right next to it. The problem isn't where the garbage can is placed but it's the plastic itself.    I remember a trip to Mexico walking along the beach where I saw a turtle come up from the waters to find a place to lay her eggs. It was such a beautiful sight I had to stop and just silently watch in awe. At the same time, I was noticing all the trash that surrounded her. Tons of trash covering the sand where she was trying to dig yet there she is, trying her best to do what is natural for her and her babies. Humans have long-lived on this planet but not in the most harmonious ways.  Our one uses plastic habits that are harming the planet and marine life. It isn't fair to the animals and planet how we are treating it. We need to make a change and help one another thrive in our best habitats.  Plastics have silently but visibly taken over our lives and planet. Look around, how many things do you have around you right now that has some kind of plastic piece or is made of plastic? It is shocking when you gather them all together and see it for your own eyes. Every single thing you buy right now has plastic on it unless it's from an eco-friendly company that is conscious about its packaging.  You might think you don't collect that much plastic but do a little test. Keep all the plastics that you have used in just one week and look at it. You will be extremely surprised at the amount. Now, that is just one person now imagine billions of people using that much plastic in just a week and you will see the massive amount that is being thrown out. where does it go? I use to imagine that it went to a "recycle" plastic place and it gets remolded into new plastic containers to store more products for us to buy. it was a well-planed circle that just goes round and round. NOPE. Was I ever wrong Something I did not know, recycle plastics after it's been recycled is left at the place until a company or someone buys it to use for their products. It is more expensive as well then new plastics so not often someone is coming to use this resource. Is there a ton of "recycled" plastic sitting in fields then? yes..There is so much that they throw out a lot too, dump them into the oceans. At the same time, there are even MORE new plastics being produced. See the problem here? Where will it all go? We use to think this planet is so big, a little trash here and there will probably disappear in the ocean. Well, now we see they don't disappear but gather up together in GIANT islands of plastics and garbage around the world. Scuba divers are now showing us the things they run into out in the oceans. Just cause we don't see it here with our own eyes doesn't mean it isn't there and it isn't happening.  What I hear most from people is "It isn't affecting me, not my problem"  Plastics have taken over so much of our lives and habitat that it is also in the food we eat. Plastic becomes even more insidious when it breaks down into microscopic particles called microplastics, which ends up in our food and water and ultimately, in us. Recent research has shown that we consume one credit card worth of plastic every week. YIKESSSSS. If your health isn't important to you, I hope at least the health of your loved ones is! I changed my ways of plastic use because I wanted a better future for my children. I don't want them to be left behind to deal with my bad habits of easy use plastics. It is a problem and it starts with just one person changing their ways to make a difference. start with yourself and change your daily habits.  Did you know? it is almost impossible to recycle these items?  1. Toothpaste  Receipts, toothpaste, and other squeezable tubes are difficult to recycle because they often contain a thin layer of aluminum and various types of plastic- making it challenging for recycling plants to separate and process them.  2. paper straws Paper straws contain recyclable material. However, paper straws are almost never recycled because they would need to be collected separately in large quantities before being able to recycle them  3. Receipts Paper receipts are often printed on shiny, thermal paper, which is not recyclable because they coated with s substance called bisphenol A (BPA) or bisphenol S (BPS). Many stores now send you an email receipt, or give you the choice of whether to take a printed receipt  4. Pringles boxes  Pringles boxes are very difficult to recycle because they combine five different materials including a metal base, tear off foil top, a plastic lid, silver foil lining inside and a cardboard outer sleeve  5. Crisps and chip bags Crisps packets cant is recycled because of the grease and crisp residue that clings to them. Try the scrunch test: if the item springs back into shape after you have scrunched it up, then it shouldn't be recycled.   6. Cotton pads Cotton pads are often blended with synthetic materials, such as polyester, so are impossible to recycle. If 100% cotton, they can be composted but only if they have not been used to remove make-up or with chemicals such as disinfectants.  7. Sticky notes  Sticky notes cannot be recycled in most cases because the glue on the adhesive strip cant always is removed during the recycling process, so many centers refuse to accept them.  These are just a number of things. There are many other things we always thought we could recycle but can't! Even things that have the "recycle" logo on it such as coffee lids, cups, and take out containers. Once it is dirty it is impossible to recycle.  With that being said, make sure to rinse out your cans and anything you are planning on recycling and take off all lids as well.  Always remember to: REFUSE, REDUCE, and REUSE! it's easy!  Here are some videos to get more info on how to become more plastic-free. I hope this post has ignited a change within you to do something different and help this planet thrive. We are on this planet together. It is OUR home and we need to unite and help bring back its natural ways for ourselves, the beings here and for the future of our children and their children.  You can find out moe plastic information from Earthday.Org https://www.earthday.org/campaign/end-plastic-pollution/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwz4z3BRCgARIsAES_OVd3GzWTIjmJea2Y_xlKWhW5YRpPJsQNf_yswMWyMmJVYhMFSi6FpYgaAmKJEALw_wcB 20 Ways to reduce waste/ Easy sustainable lifestyle hacks/ zero waste for beginners  https://youtu.be/kXgELGBuMfA I hope you have an amazing day my friends.

I remembered when earth homes or living off the grid was considered "crazy". Whenever I would bring it up to my friends, they would most the time give me that crazy look like O.K Jenn. You are one hippie lady. Now with this pandemic,  people are finally opening up the idea. Imagine living in a home that is not only eco friendly but self-sustainable. You never need to make any essential runs unless you want to. You have a garden in the back growing all the things you love to eat. You are surrounded by a community that believes in the same value as you. You can do trades of seeds, food, or even gathering of dinners. It's a never-ending project until you feel it is and there will be people around who would love to help one another build a great earth home. This idea isn't something of the imagination no more but reality. There are over thousands of earth homes around mostly in new Mexico. 

Micheal Reynolds, An architect, built the first Earthship in the 1970s.  It is pretty clear by now the way we live on this planet is not that stable and that secure, not to mention that ecological.  Forests were being cleared for timber and toilet paper while trash was exponentially increasing. To solve those two problems Reynolds built a house made of beer cans. When that was successful he then started using tires and bottles to build structures.






What are the six things all humans need to survive? Food, energy, clean water, shelter, garbage management, and sewage treatment.  An Earthship meets ALL of those requirements. 

What? that's crazy how does it work? A traditional Earthship is built into the ground. where the grounds help regulates temperature. Windows on the south side of the building create warmth and sunlight helps grow food. The great thing about these is that you can build yours however you like it. You can add solar panels to your roof and even build a rainwater collector. The sky is the limit. 

Since the COVID 19, an interest in Earthhomes spiked.  It's awesome to see the interest raising so fast. It reassures me that people are indeed waking up and taking their lives into their own hands. Why live in a cramped apartment when you can live in a home outside of the city with everything you need and more. Financially it is better as well. Building one or buying one could cost around 70,000 but once built, you wouldn't need to pay for electricity bills, water bills, rent, or mortgage! The only thing you would need to pay for monthly is property taxes and of course any other added things you want such as the internet. The monthly bills are what people are drowning under. When you start to put all these factors together, Earthhomes and living off-grid seem like a pretty good idea haha.

 I mean how great is it to live in a community of love and creativity. To have less stress of all the city life and to embrace and soak in what planet earth and nature has to offer. Growing your own food free of pesticides and chemicals. The feeling of accomplishment with everything you build with your own hands. We are capable and we should start moving towards this kind of living if we want to continue to thrive as humans on this mother planet we call home. 









Now I know not everybody can just up and find a Earthhome especially people who live in cities like New York or a suburban home in Texas but the broad takeaways that everyone can consider are being more self-sufficient. Be more independent. Let's stop depending on companies to meet our needs and let's venture out and learn things ourselves. If something like this pandemic were to happen again, we can take care of ourselves. Grow our food and even understand how to filter rainwater or create our own electricity. It isn't far fetch, it isn't crazy, Its human. we are evolving and learning from experiences. I can see these kinds of homes along with other kinds of homes people have done such as build a community over water using trash that has floated in from the ocean. We are adaptable and that's how we survived for so long on this planet. Along the way, we got comfortable with the companies who provide us with easy access to food, medical, water, electricity, and a place to call home meanwhile working long hours to pay for all of these. Depression rates are up because people are not happy. How can you be when there are no accomplishments. Just working to live. 

I am very excited to see our human race looking for different ways to live and is opening up to the idea of living off-grid. I can not wait to see how this planet will be 10 years from now. I hope this blog has spiked an interest in you as well. perhaps you will be living in an Earth home not too far in the future. I hope I will be. 








Reynolds believes in this idea so much he has launched his own Earthship academy for those who are interested in building their own homes. You can find all the information here in this link

As for now, If you would like to start on something to be more self-efficient, I would recommend a small garden perhaps on your balcony or hanging outside your window to building garden boxes in the backyard. Once you grow your food and eat it, you will feel so good like you can literally do anything. you have the confidence to live on your own and not stress if the grocery stores are closed. Another simple but great skill to learn is to pickle things in cans. Here are some videos to get your started : ) Have fun and do share what you have created.

Hello, are you awake?  Humans are in the midst of a transformation. Information is everywhere and it really just depends if you have questions you want to be answered. Don't worry or be afraid however because you are not alone. There are many and more every day waking up to this new reality. A Metareality, beyond human consciousness. A reality where humans are tuned into their own powers, intuition, and energy. A place where we can manifest absolutely anything we desire. A world of frequencies and a home of love and peace. True happiness and well being. It all starts inside of you. Making that choice to make a change. Taking action and effort to become that future you. Who we are is not dependant on our genes or past! my gosh isn't that refreshing to hear? It is just crazy that we once believed that our DNA is what made us. Beliving things like If you had a heart problem run in your family then mostly you will have it too. I'm here to tell you that it is not true. You can change your very DNA using just your thoughts and intuition. you can rewrite your "code" and become anything you desire. To become who we want to be, we must sacrifice our old selves.  Only then, will we allow room for us to change and evolve into an infinite metahuman. ' Beyond Human" Ok that sounds cool but where do we start right?  First off, you have come to the right place! This page has everything you need to know about living a more sustainable and high-frequency life. I am here to share some knowledge with you each week from holistic practices to meditation, manifestation, natural beauty, angels and most of all just positivity and support. I know how it feels to wake up to this world and not know what is happening. I know how it feels to be lost and not really understand who you are or why you are here. It's a bit overwhelming but just know everything is happening for a reason. If you are ready to take this hero journey, I will be here to support you.  I know times are stressful right now. Lots of tense energies floating around.  Humans are made of energies and we actually absorb other energies daily. we have no control if we are taking in good or bad energies, hence why sometimes you are having a great day then suddenly you are in a bad mood. It is VERY important for us to cleanse our energy daily if possible. Otherwise, over time you will get drained, tired, and even depressed. You won't know why but you just feel stuck, impatient, and angry.  You can do this by meditation, frequency music, burning sage/wood or salt bath. For us to really make a change, we must cleanse ourselves so we can feel and listen to our own intuition.   Here are some videos on each point I mention if you would like to check it out.  Meditation: https://youtu.be/IzV6J4WCwRM Frequency music:  Play this during the day or while you sleep /    https://youtu.be/UkM-FjfN6Mc Sage: https://youtu.be/dIc4cJj-ZPA Salt water: https://youtu.be/DhjTcpd0PUY I will be making more detailed blog posts on each point as well. I hope this blog was helpful to you and I look forward to growing together.  We are one  Jenuine Love  metahuman.ca
