Celebrate Your Life

As a kid, did you ever peer inside a kaleidoscope? If so, can you recall your fascination with the designs and colors? Or, did you spend hours sifting through odd objects to create a fort or a lemonade stand? Perhaps you spent your time creating costumes and acting out imaginary stories. Or did you spend hours riding your bike, practicing sports or hanging out with friends? If not, you may be able to recall a brief time when you felt safe, relaxed or content.

A Spiritual Journey to Awakening the Real You

Do you have trouble finding peace and joy when all around you is anything but peaceful?  Are you challenged with a "tiger roar" when something happens that isn't to your preference? Do your thoughts race or wander?  You are not alone.  One of the most challenging life lessons is learning to awaken the sense of balance that is our divine birth right..  Peace, harmony and joy are within us if we get personality out of the way.  Most people want life to happen on their terms and strive to make it so.  Having, doing and being is living life in a reverse fashion  The key to success is BEING, DOING AND HAVING according to wisdom offered by author Neal Donald Walsh.  This message also comes through in the Path of Light teachings by Dr. Robert  Crary.    BE the peace and joy you desire.  Take a moment to quiet your thoughts with a gentle breath.  Take a second breath and by the time a third breath occurs,  this centering practice awakens an inner power to align your mind, body and spirit to your perfect design.  It takes practice but is so worth doing. Living a conscious life is living fully in the moment.  Awaken to your real self.

Being Kind to Yourself

You may have grown up hearing very negative messages. You may have been told not to try, you won’t be successful. You may have believed these messages. You may have been physically and verbally abused and believed that you deserved that treatment. It is possible that no one ever said to you: ‘good job, I am proud of you’. You may have lived your  whole life expecting the worst at all times.

Bombshell Beauty Tips

5 Top Hair Wellness Tips

  1. Are you wondering why your hair is feeling so dry and damaged? TURN DOWN THE HEAT!! Yes, you will get the same results just less damage when using your hot tools (irons, blow dryers etc.) Low settings are ideal for keeping your hair soft and shiny. And please make sure you are using a heat protectant as well. You can always call and ask me about our Olaplex restructuring treatments!! They are the newest science behind prevention/repairing hair damage! Worth every penny.
  2. Does your scalp ever get too dry? Sometimes the opposite even too oily?? Either way these are all tell tale signs of your PH balance being off. To balance that out try a apple cider vinegar wash! It will revitalize your scalp and bring back shine to your hair.
  3. The PH Scale of your hair and scalp is between 4.5-5.5 (acidic). Check and make sure all your shampoo’s and styling aids are in that range to keep everything in balance. That goes with your skin care as well!!
  4.  Normal hair loss is anywhere between 50-100 strands per day! It seems like a lot but that’s the norm. If experiencing extra hair loss ask yourself… Am I stressed? Am I taking any new medications? Am I pregnant or a nursing mother? Hormones, medicine, and environment Copic of big changes lots half of the all play roles in your hair cycles. Taking Biotin vitamins can help strengthen your hair and nails.
  5. These are recommended time frames for up keep on your locks

The Power of Yes

There comes a time when we just get sick and tired of it. What is it? It could be the unmoved stack of clutter or unresolved “stuff” that we think about from time to time. Clutter usually accumulates because we just don’t know what to do with it or how to handle it in the moment. Circumstances can linger in our perception. Yet the good news is they don’t have to exist in our reality. It’s time to straighten up, clean up and clear out the clutter.

Life as a Vegan

Recently my good friend Dashaun Jones has being living
the Vegan culture life . I was so amazed by his Drive to
live and try something so different from how he came up
eating the traditional food culture, so I had to give him this
interview on how and why he did it
Q: So with the popular tradition dishes such as , pizzas,
cheese steaks, mexican grill foods , and etc . So what
made you decide to go the Vegan life?
A: I was trying something new. I wanted to experiment
with this way of dieting to see how it would effect me. I
was drinking 2 energy drinks a day and wanted to find a
much healthier way to build energy. I did research and

think about is hot wings with ranch. It’s always the wings.

A Different Approach

Take a moment to think of all the good things you can say about yourself and your community. Even with loss, you can be inspired when you see yourself working through issues. You can learn from any experience. Now what would you call that? Growth? Yes, it’s growth and maturity. Life is a journey we are all experiencing. We start from wherever we do and move along. We live through a collection of decisions. Some think that they have no choice to change their circumstances. While others sprint ahead, tweaking circumstances little by little.

Laughter as a Spiritual Gift

Have you been blessed to know someone who laughs often and as such you find yourself laughing too, or at least smiling?  Laughter is a true spiritual gift that is meant to be shared.  You may say "there is nothing to laugh about".  How about just laughing for the sake of energizing your body and mind?  Yes, when you are having a down moment or day, place your hands on your belly, your abdomen, and do a deep belly laugh.  We`ve seen enough Santa movies to know that kind of laugh.  It's fun and energizing as you become more comfortable doing this movement.  Your natural sound is Ho Ho Ho.  Next, move your hands up to your heart area and laugh again with the sounds Ha Ha Ha.   Don't stop until you reach your head with the next sound of He He He.  By now your hands are on top of your head and you are feeling a little silly but more energized than before.  These are the foundational steps to Laughter Yoga which when practiced often has encouraged the sense of  "feeling better`.  When we feel better we are more likely and able to enjoy the day.  Try this laughter practice with friends and family.   Laugh through a song instead of singing the words especially at a birthday party.  Or just laugh...it's fun and healthy for you.
