Recipe: Energy Balls

โ† CHAPTER OVERVIEW

How about something sweet and healthy?

I love these little energy balls – they are sweet and tasty and healthy and can keep you going for a long time.

We will get into healthy snacking and many other fun and mindful ways of eating in the next chapter, but it never hurts to get a head start.

These energy balls are something great to bring to longer meetings or discussions, just for yourself – or for your team or community – as they’ll give you, and everyone else, the energy to get you through any topic ๐Ÿ™‚

I will share one basic recipe with you here, but you can find many more variations if you look for sugar-free energy balls – or try around with it a bit yourself.

Coconut Date Energy Balls

Ingredients:

You can really pick and choose here, but some basics are:

oats
dates
nuts or nut butter
seeds
spices
raisins or other dry or fresh berries
chocolate chips
honey or maple syrup
shredded coconut for coating

If you are using dates as a main sweetener, you need to remove the pits and then soak them in water for a bit for best usage.

You can put them in a bowl to blend them with a magic wand and then add oats, nuts or nut butter and whatever else you desire until it becomes a sticky dough.

You can even add carrots, or apples, pumpkin or muesli.

Once the dough has a nice consistency, you roll little balls and cover them in shredded coconut. You can use a dark chocolate coating as well.

As I usually make more than I can eat in a few days, so I just keep what I can eat in the fridge and freeze the rest.

I can then simply take one or two out to defrost and eat during the day.

Enjoy!

Community – Week 1 – Pt. 1

Welcome to a New Chapter in the CREATRIX School

Starting today, and for the next four weeks, we will think about how we can be at our best with others and how we can use our unique abilities, gifts and talents to contribute to the greater good of all.

As the first week of each chapter in the CREATRIX School is all about assessing where we are, so we can let go of what doesnโ€™t serve us any more, and invite more of what we do want, we start this chapter by looking at our hopes for the future of our world as well as the experiences weโ€™ve made in community so far.

What do we mean when we say communities, and why do we need them?

There are different ways for communities to be organized. Sometimes, all people are equal and come together to organize things as equals.

Sometimes, thereโ€™s an initiator, or someone who finances the project and other people who organize and implement it.

Sometimes, there are some people who are paid and other people who volunteer.

What are the different kinds of projects or communities you have been involved in, or would like to get involved in, in your life?

How do you envision our future?

Itโ€™s easy to think there are so many problems in this world โ€“ what am I supposed to do about it โ€“ I canโ€™t do anything but make the best of it โ€“ and thatโ€™s true to some extent โ€“ but also not entirely.

Because weโ€™re not just here to get by. Weโ€™re not just here to arrange ourselves with what is already here โ€“ we are life and a part of the great symphony of life thatโ€™s playing right now, in this moment, and we get to contribute to it.

How to learn to love triggers

In this lesson, we look at why it is so important to unite for a cause and not against someone or something – if we want to create lasting change – no matter how much we might disagree with them or something.

And we look at how love really is always the answer, even, or especially, when someone or something upsets us.

How can we create a real alternative to what we currently have?

In this lesson, we talk about how judgement can be a very useful tool on our journey to becoming our most authentic and best selves and create the communities we wish for, as long as we don’t use it to condemn other people or to establish superiority.

We also think about how every trigger is really here for us to grow, and not something to be afraid of or to avoid and how punishment, just like suppression, doesn’t lead to anything beautiful – and what we can do instead.

On Freedom, Responsibility and our Nature

In this lesson, we look at how freedom and responsibility are linked and what that has to do with consciousness.

And how with a raised consciousness also comes more freedom and thus, by raising our consciousness and finding more inner peace, we also obliterate the need for violence.

And we look at another essential thing, that will help us be more aware in our community interactions – our role as humans in nature, in this world.

What’s your unique superpower?

We start this lesson with a short review of what we’ve learned in the last few lessons to resolve the most common problems found in communities today.

And then we begin to look at our unique superpowers, so we can become more confident in the way we contribute to any community, group or project we choose to support.

Whatโ€™s your favourite archetype?

In this lesson, we dive deeper into the roles we can inhabit in a group or community setting.

Are you better fit for a creative role or a leading role, or both, or something else?

Knowing what we are good at, and also thinking about what we would like to learn and grow into, can help us immensely to find our place in any community setting and to be able to contribute in the best possible way.

This is also a great resource if you’d ever like to start your own project or company and can help you make sure all vital roles will be covered so that the project can run in the best possible way.

Whatโ€™s your (stress) archetype?

Of course, things don’t always go the way we want them too.

Sometimes we get stressed, overwhelmed, take on too much or don’t dare to step into our power.

But we can always change and learn and grow.

Looking at the Occasional Archetypes, like the thief, victim, fool, hero_ine, adventurer and so on can help us to recognize these archetypes in ourselves and others and help us to come back into balance, whenever we slip into them.

Let your heart be your guide

We end this chapter by thinking about forming temporary alliances, to help us come together for causes that affect us all – and how we can do that while also disagreeing on other things.
