Did you eat too much over the holidays?
Are you looking to improve your diet and your health?
Do you want to overcome food cravings and tackle the emotional attachment of eating?
Do you want to lose weight and gain health?
I can show you how!!
From my own personal experience, I was able to heal myself of Graves Disease, an incurable hyperthyroid condition, as well as ten years of chronic pain. However, my weight always fluctuated, and it wasn’t until 2 years ago that I was able to return to the same weight and body size that I had when I was 17 and maintain it.
Doctors have said I’m a medical miracle. For me, it’s just knowledge put into practice. And after 25 years of practicing on myself, and 10 years experience of advising people on diet and nutrition, I have finally developed a system that I feel creates consistent results and benefits, the Vibra Diet, a unique combination of Whole Food Nutrition and Mindful Eating.
If you’re looking for a diet that’s not a diet, but a way of life, then the Vibra Diet is for you. Email or whatsapp for a free initial Skype consultation today! Here’s to ringing in 2018 with consciousness, self care, and health!! Much love, Jordana xo 🙂

Discovering Self Care
By Jordana Jyoti Goldstein
It was 1998, and one of my darkest hours. I was in India, at my Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training, when I was given the spiritual name Jyoti, meaning light. At the time I had no idea why, and I clearly thought they made a mistake. Sadly, I forged on with the monotony of building someone else’s life, for lack of courage to build my own.
Fast forward 10 years and the humongous jolt of seven Spiritual Emergencies later… I finally emerged out of the dark night of the soul, with a channeled mission to spread the light and Jyoti started to peak her way out. I felt the urge to connect people, including myself, with Spirit… But who was I? And where to start?? This was no small potato!
And then it came to me….
If I cared for myself, then wouldn’t it bring others to care for me? And most importantly Spirit? Then maybe we would all be more connected.
But I saw that self care wasn’t so easy.
The biggest problem I had in integrating CARE into my life, was applying it to myself. And the mirror I had around me, clearly showed I wasn’t getting the job done. The mirror was of the SUPER moms, and the SUPER iaia’s (grandmothers) of Spain. At first I was so impressed with them, I had never seen anything like it. They were amazing at covering all of the bases, running around, caring for their kings, their princes, and their princesses, as they called them, not leaving a single stone unturned. But there was something that took me a good few years to realize, which was at the end of the day these women were completely destroyed, stressed out, with tons of aches and pains, and left with a dwindling tank of gas.
But how did this mirror apply to me, I questioned?
I was definitely not a super mom! On the contrary, more often than not, I felt I had no idea what I was doing. But in other aspects of my life it was always easier for me to focus on caring for others, to heal others, to give to others, especially in my work as a healer. I vibrated with that, I wanted that…and so Spirit gave me more and more people in need, people that I could care for, and people in need of healing. Until I too, was tapped out, with only my own energy to run on. That was when my body cried out in pain, screaming at me to wake up and listen, and there it was, my reflection, clear as day, in the mirror of super moms and iaia’s.
But I ran in the opposite direction, searching outside of myself, like most of us do, thinking it was the food, the water, the pollution, lack of exercise, whatever, that was causing the pain. Years later and tons of money down the drain on diets, supplements, classes, and treatments, I finally realized it was ME! I needed to care for ME FIRST, to heal me, to transform me, and in turn transform the mirrors around me.
Where was I when the flight attendants told me I had to put my oxygen mask on first? Clearly, not listening…hahaha.
So I began my journey of self care. Taking time for myself every day, in whatever way was called for. Each day was a new creation and I could manifest self care however I chose. There were no rules to the game, I JUST had to DO IT in thought, word, and deed, intention put into action. Actions like walking on the beach, balancing my bank accounts, reupholstering my massage table, updating my website, meeting friends, cleaning my apartment…it didn’t matter, as long as the acts came from an intention of self care, daily, and over a long period of time, I was doing it.
It’s taken a long time for me to brush the surface of integrating self care into my daily life. But it’s been well worth the effort to see that I need to put myself first, that chores aren’t just chores, but actually actions of self care if I can just perceive them that way, and perception does go a long way when performed with intention. The mirrors still serve me well to keep me on my toes, like when my Dad, the king of self neglect, pops into my life, and I see it as a warning sign that I may be falling into old habits. But I am encouraged, because I am starting to see glimpses that my self care vibes are catching on, as new mirrors appear in my reality like my sister donating her graphic design prowess to all of my causes, my teenage son making me French toast in bed, and Spirit bringing me incredible people and experiences into my life.
Today, I am consciously creating this garden of self care. I started with the seed of intention, and through daily practice, action, and experience over time, self care has helped me to come closer to myself, to value and love myself, as I do when I care for others. And as I care for myself, I can feel more the care that comes from Spirit, energizing me with an endless fuel that feeds my soul.
So, back to Jyoti, and my mission to spread the light. In the end, maybe it’s just about finding my own light within and shining it on myself, so I can see that my daily life is actually one long act of kindness to myself when I connect with the intention of SELF CARE. And it is through this awareness that I spread my light and transform my reality. I laugh to myself, as a smile comes to my face, from deep within, memories swirling in my head of my dance teacher, the great Jennifer Muller, stopping me in my tracks a gazillion times in class just to scream “what’s your intention Jordana!!” Well Jennifer, I finally have your answer…Intention is EVERYTHING, and everything is self care if I perceive it that way!”
In love and light! Blessings,
Jordana 🙂 xo

Having had 7 spiritual emergencies and 25 years of experience working with the 5 elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth, I have come to realize through my own healing process that the single most important tool that empowered me to transform my debilitating crisis, apart from finding normalcy and community, was GROUNDING. Each time I was in Spiritual Emergency my upper chakras were suddenly wide open, causing an imbalance in the ether element that would shoot me right up into the ether of outer space. And my air element would over stimulate with tons of thoughts, frying my brain from trying to figure out what was happening, what all of the synchronicities meant, and how it all related to the workings of the Universe. Not only did I forget about my basic needs of eating, sleeping, and washing, but I actually refused to waste time on them. So clearly I was out of balance. I knew that if I could just work to open my lower chakras and connect more with the water and earth elements, then I could bring myself more into balance, to be able to function in the world, and to begin to integrate my experiences.
* * *
One of the first steps I applied to ground myself and find balance was actually FREE, and easily broke through my brick wall of resistance. It’s called EARTHING. So literally, healing began with my first steps of actually walking barefoot on the earth. Earthing is a term, coined and discovered in 1998 by Clint Ober, a pioneer in the US cable TV industry, who worked for years with grounding cable systems, and found that when we walk barefoot on the ground, we create a “ground” with the earth, the same “ground” that’s needed when we work with high voltage electricity. He found that the earth’s grounding energy is accessible to us through our feet, but they need to be bare because the rubber souls of our shoes block the conduction of energy. It doesn’t matter whether we walk on earth, grass, or untreated cement, though the former two are preferable, the earth’s energy creates the “ground” with our bodies, so we can receive its powerful negative ions. Once in our bodies, the negative ions from the earth neutralize the harmful positive ions or free radicals that we have accumulated inside of us, and they act as an extremely powerful anti-oxidant, freely accessible to us just from walking barefoot on the ground. And it’s now well known that antioxidants are our frontline defense against inflammation, considered to be the root cause of chronic pain and many of the major health disorders. So not only does this powerful practice of Earthing bring us to commune with nature, connect with Spirit, and ground ourselves, but it also claims to heal aches and pains, and inflammatory diseases, and has been found to alleviate insomnia and depression and improve mood as well, all things that our SE community seems to struggle with.
* * *
Apart from all the science, I have recently taken up earthing as a daily practice, not necessarily for the health benefits, though I definitely welcome and feel them, but for my personal view of our global crisis, I felt that it was my duty to embody the change that I too wanted to see. I have long been tired of the daily rat race of errands and non stop working and doing. And I realized the only way it was all going to stop, was if I stopped and really integrated stopping. So that’s what I did. I now start every morning by stopping and being…at the beach, walking barefoot in the sand, alone in nature, and communing with the sun, the earth, and the water. I am noticing that I feel more fulfilled, more content, more balanced, and more tolerant, yet with less unnecessary thoughts, less addictive tendencies, and surprisingly less fears. I feel nurtured by the sun, cleansed by the water, and supported by the earth, and it has changed my being to the core. But none of this would be possible if it weren’t for my intention. I thought to share this practice with my mom, who’s 78, just broke her shoulder, and suffering from a lot of inflammation. But I realized that she’s never going to believe it works. It’s too simple, and too easy, and because of her lack of faith in things like this, it most likely won’t work, which made me realize that a lot of the magic comes from our intention and belief system, that ultimately empowers us to mold our reality.
* * *
So why not start today? Kick off your shoes, get your butt into nature, be clear with your intentions and beliefs, and enjoy the benefits of Earthing for at least 15 minutes a day if you can. And if this isn’t your cup of tea, you can always buy special Earthing mats, bands, and patches, that have been created to mimic the same grounding process so you can reap all of the same benefits from the comfort of your home, at a cost of course. And for those of us who are sensitive to electromagnetics and get drained from being on electronics all day, Earthing could be the answer to our prayers. Happy Earthing, folks!
In love and light!
