I am new at raw foods been doing it now for 15 days. I started my raw food lifestyle when I went to the Woodstock fruit Festival 2012. I had been eating raw food for a long time before that but never 100 procent. I started feeling a need for change about a year and a half ago when I had almost taken my life because of alkohol abuse. I was about to end this precious life that I am so lucky enough to have. I had never heard about a raw food movement it just made sense that raw food is the best for our bodys. I knew that myself. It makes so much sense. I have been vegetarian since I was six but I cannot say I been very healthy. I came to this website because I wanna connect with likeminded people and I need all the inspiration I can get considering I have no one who is doing this where I am at the moment and sometimes it gets hard. I feel lonely. But I would rather be alone and true then to have friends but not be true to myself. Eating cooked for me feels so wrong. Eating anything but 100 procent raw feels so wrong in my body. Nuts and seeds feel very heavy for me. So I prefer to not eat them. I prefer and I know I function the best when I eat fresh ripe fruit as they are and also leafy greens. An avocado here and there is nice. But not often. I do fall for the temptations a lot. I eat raw cheesecakes and raw vegan candy, they contain lots of fat from nuts. Its not what my body wants but I eat it anyways and I have to pay for it. So I am in the beginning and Im working on it. It feels good either way. My Spiritual practice and journey is going so good I love how much it helps . Everything in my life is better now that I think about it. Well, its hard when your grandma gets truly upset because u do not wanna stuff your face with junk. But u know what. She will have to live with it because she gotta respect that I wanna LIVE. Truly LIVE. And I can fully live with the raw foods I am so ALIVE!
Peace ya'll!

Well honestly. What does HCRV stand for? I feel so silly but I really do not know. Other then that I do not know. I feel very difficult cravings sometimes and then I'll eat a bunch of nuts and dried fruit with fucks my body up big time I need help to not eat that. What can I do to not give into those sick cravings. ? Practice will power I guess.

Last I heard Ian here was knowledgeable about that Hawaiian community you're interested in. 

It might take some time before he gets back with you, as he checks in only periodically :

P.S. your freestyle video made me very happy! :) It's excellent to be so free with expressing yourself. That is also how I started playing guitar, just enjoying the sounds the strings make.

A good way to get started is to go to a music shop and find a song you really like, in guitar sheet music. Lots of them will have little fingering diagrams which have little dots to show you where to place your fingers on the strings to make a chord. It doesn't matter if you get things wrong! Because you are already really just enjoying the sound anyway.

Over time as you come closer and closer to how the song sounds when you plan and sing it, you'll start to "own" some of those chords, then you'll combine them in different ways, make up your own lyrics, start experimenting with picking, etc. It may seem like a long road to getting a skill level where you can play songs people recognize, etc. Don't worry about that! You are already a guitarist because you love it, so short path or long path to whatever goals you may decide on, it doesn't matter, you are going to love the journey anyway! :)
