Make it Happen Monday: Arcanum pāx


There is a little known island about half way between the Caribbean islands and the coast of Africa.  Its name is Arcanum pāx, meaning “the secret peace”.  On this island, the only means of transportation is by bicycle.  The only relationships they know are love and peace.  And the only thoughts that flow are ones of positivity.

The islanders start off each morning with a time for gratitude.  Whether they do it in groups or in solitude, each and every one of them envisions, writes down, or speaks about all they are grateful for.

Their bodies are full of proper nutrition which fuels their thoughts and energizes their being.  This is combined with daily exercise and creates agreement in the body, mind, and soul.  They spend hours alone on their bicycles, in meditation and silence.  They receive healing and rejuvenation from sea baths in the ocean.

They appreciate one another and are never jealous or envious of anyone or anything.  In fact, they make a habit of telling one another what they appreciate most about each other.  There is peace and harmony that exists between the residents.

There is no need for tourism, industry, or commercialization because they have manifested everything they’ve ever needed, and continue to attract what they need each and every day.  This isn’t a utopian society, just one place on Earth where they followed a different path.  They took a chance….and to me, they succeeded incredibly.  These Islanders have all they need and more.

If you are interested, I invite you to enquire more into this fascinating island….but you won’t find them on a website or travel book.  It is a lost forgotten place and they want to keep it that way.  Perfect.  I hope y’all find your “Arcanum pāx” this week.

Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
