Tara Garrison | No More Mental Slavery: Why The Popular Mantra of “You Are Enough” Is INSULTING Your Subconscious Mind + How To Make Meaning of Life’s Challenges

“The popular mantra, ‘I am enough,' is actually an insult; it is disempowering. I get that it is a bridge in the self-development process because of the programming that people have received and they believe this lie but the analogy that I like to use is: If you went to a beautiful mountain lake and saw the most epic sunset of your entire life and you said, ‘You are enough; yeah, that's enough'; what are you talking about? We are so much more than ‘enough;' that is the understatement of the century. That belief has to change.” – Tara Garrison

PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented.

Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year.

The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients.

Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy.

PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks

Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier.

Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended… on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s.

Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being “free range” – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most “free range” turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.

Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

Power Quotes From The Show

[click_to_tweet tweet=”When you are out of alignment, ask yourself, ‘What is my fear?'. Also, are you investing in yourself? Do you take courses, hire mindset coaches, or follow intuitive nudges and go on a trip that your intuition told you to do? – @coachtarag” quote=”When you are out of alignment, ask yourself, ‘What is my fear?'

How to Tap Into Your Creation Energy

“You already are worthy. 100% you are worthy of success, of love, of better health. You don't even have to question that and the more you know that the more you will just be. A tree isn't sitting there wondering if it's worthy, it just is. Remember this when you catch yourself with a negative mindset about your body, work, or personal growth. When we see our worth; we feel it and when we resonate in it full of gratitude and truly see ourselves, that is actually creation energy. When you tap into that, you're no longer coming from a place of scarcity and trying to prove yourself to the world.” –  Tara Garrison

Why Are We Attracted to Food Camps?

“We are so attracted to specific food camps because of our lack of self-development and people wanting to be led, taught, and get the Cliff notes of what is best. Then maybe they try that diet and they truly do feel better and it helps them. For example, If someone heals their SIBO with the carnivore diet, they are going to be feeling a lot better. But then if you have all of these respectable health professionals telling you all the reasons why this is THE best diet in the world for all humans, which a lot of it is for their monetary gain, you're not going to be really listening to yourself and what your own body needs. If all of that happens, you are setting yourself up to be in this very safe way of thinking.” –  Tara Garrison

Getting Back Into Powerful Alignment

“When you are out of alignment, ask yourself, ‘What is my fear?' Are you investing in yourself? Do you take courses, hire mindset coaches, or follow intuitive nudges and go on a trip that your intuition told you to do just for you?” –  Tara Garrison
