It really is amazing what a sense of empowerment you can get when you live off the grid. I cannot emphasise enough just how much more fulfilling my life is since I decided to stop living life like other people expect me to.

Yes I have spent two thirds of my life conforming to all the societal norms and during those years, I pretty much lived in fear of what other people thought, and of the system outside the gate. Today I choose to live life like it actually matters. To live the way I choose.

Living off the grid demands that I participate in my own survival, which suits me down to the ground. If I don't participate in the day to day life chores, then I will suffer, therefore I do participate and I feel so much better for it.

For instance today was toilet bucket emptying day! It took me all of five minutes. 20 years ago, I would have point blank refused to live somewhere that only had composting toilets, today, I have no problems with them in the least.

I also fed and watered the ducks and chooks and collected the one and only egg they chose to share with me today. I planted some strawberries, and am just waiting for Steve to finish a couple more wicking beds so that I can plant out the onion seedlings.

I also started a couple of tinctures with some herbs that finally arrived. I am making a mullien and passionflower tincture today. These will be ready in about 6 weeks time and will add to my medicine store.

Next job is to create our dinner which will be based around a bottle of tomatoe/vegetable sauce that I made a few weeks ago using our bottlling outfit.

All these things are not just fun, but they mean I am participating in my own survival and all achieved while not being connected to any corporation.

Life just doesn't get any better! And I feel so empowered.

I spent a large chunk of the weekend home brewing. I like that I can make what we want to drink and soon I hope to get back to cheese's and jerky etc. It is empowering for me to be able to have a little luxury that "the man" cannot tax (currently at least).

Hi Nick. So you make your own cheese and jerky? I have always wanted to try that. Is it easy or not so much? cheers Kerri

 Re: empowerment
not hard at all. The cheese requires some patience and the jerky needs a really sharp knife and a good slab of beef with as little fat in it as possible. The goodies for both should be available at home brew shops. I use "The Country Brewer" but most should be able to point you in the right direction I would think.

Kezzeeens Kreations
Introducing Kezzeens Kreations

One of my favorite Off Grid things I like to do is to create my own lotions and potions.

I have been playing around with creating natural lotions and potions for about 40 years. We use them to help keep us healthy, and without the need to buy products which contain a lot of nasty unnatural chemicals.

I have been asked many times why don't I sell my products? Well now I do. :)

My daughter, Neen, a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and now a mother of 4 delightful children herself, is now following in my footsteps. Together we are now offering our natural homemade products for other people to share their benefits.

We are not a large company obviously and all our products are made by hand in our own homes and we use only the best ingredients. We create with organic, raw and natural stuff. We do not mass produce and the products may change as to whatever we have available at any given time. You can ask us to make something special for you if you like.

We are also Doterra Wellness Advocates and not only use their oils to help us in our daily lives, but we include them in our products. If you would like to know how to buy your Doterra Essential Oils at wholesale prices, please talk to us.

We welcome you to our new venture and hope that you find something that you would like to try.

Kerri-Ann and Neen
