Even though it has not rained much in Los Angeles, there is a hydrating cool ocean mist that sometimes sweeps over the city. It’s really refreshing. During this weather it feels like you are inside a cloud.
For a while I’ve ignored astrology, astronomy and the moon. I thought that I didn’t want anything influencing my experience of life. But after I began reading a book by Jivanmukti I was recommended to reconsider. Noticing all these different cycles doesn’t need to mean that you worship any of it or you believe in it. Paying attention to how your energy is during various cosmic events simply gives you more awareness about yourself. The more you understand yourself, the clearer it will become how to refine and purify your energy and physical body. Awareness doesn’t mean control or trying to manifest anything. True awareness is about emotional surrender.
I love cake and I love simple, whole and pure foods. So I was inspired to experiment. I soaked millet overnight (soaked grains are easier for body to digest I’ve been told.) Then after the millet is prepared, I pour frosting on it. I’ve been making frosting with kefir, cinnamon powder, and sweet stevia powder, and a splash of vanilla mixed together. Add strawberries on top. Cupcake?
I have been focusing on decluttering my home; buying less and enjoying what I already own. During my kitchen clean up I found a stash of all these teas that I collected from Europe. I’m not sure why I didn’t drink them but now I decided to start making baths! And what a great idea this was. I would use the entire package of tea in a big pot, and pour the tea into a bathtub. I use a strainer so that the tea leaves stay out of the bath to avoid clogging. I also added sea salt to the bath. So far I’ve done a rooibos tea bath which made my skin really soft, and a green tea bath that made my skin dewy and healthy. So you can drink tea, make baths with it, make ice cubes with it and melt them on your face. Herbal tea is best.
I heard Epsom salt baths are awesome and that Magnesium absorbs better through the skin. Today I poured half a cup of spirulina powder, half a cup of Hawaiian sea salt, 2 drops of high quality lemongrass essential oil, and placed 2 clear quartz crystals. When I took the crystals out they looked happy and vibrant. This bath felt like I was just at the beach. Before the bath, I recommend to shower first.
If you want to feel and look good, I believe it is necessary to stop drinking fake beverages. There are no health benefits in artificial sodas. The regular ones have about 40 grams of sugar! that is 10 teaspoons! The diet drinks are in some ways worse- many of us already know they are loaded with chemicals, artificial flavors and colorings. And I won’t even go into aspartame (do your research on it. Search on alternative sources because mainstream is not going to tell you the truth in this day and age). It is important to take care of the body and be conscious about what we ingest. What we eat and drink matters- on many levels. I understand that these drinks are a form of addiction to some people that they have been consuming since childhood. As adults I think we are capable of addressing addictions within ourselves and clearing them. We are powerful and capable. Soda pop is not contributing to your well being. We should only consume foods and drinks that are helping us heal and detox. Many people say true beauty is on the inside, and that is definitely true, but outside beauty is a reflection of what’s inside (some of the time). Sometimes if we have darkness and pollution on the inside is shows on the outside. Unfortunately most people on this planet are dealing with internal duality. I have not met a single perfect person yet, but I believe that with constant refinement it is possible to become divinely perfect both inside and outside. We need to continue to purify ourselves. I have recently started meditation and purifying myself in all ways. I declutter my home, I release invasive thoughts with meditation and self awareness, I consume simple and pure foods. I do this because I want to return to the natural being. Getting rid of addictions is hard. Some people are able to do it instantly- But for most of us getting rid of addictions is a gradual process, and we have to focus and keep trying every single day. Also, when it comes to food, there are so many healthy options available. If you like bubbly drinks, there is a machine you can buy where you can make your own sparkling water and flavor it with natural yummy flavors like edible essential oils. And there are also many companies that create organic natural bubbly drinks.
Often times they say listen to your body, which is good advice- although if the body is out of balance, listening to cravings may be an unwise decision. Notice if your body is showing you reactions like skin irritations, weight gain, stomach issues, headaches, insomnia, fatigue, etc.. and then make positive healthy changes. To heal, we need to both take care of the body energetically and physically. Energetically we must relax and let go of extreme emotions and flooding thoughts. Physically we must detox, balance hormones naturally by eating simple, whole, and pure foods. No sugar, no pasta or bread items, no processed foods, etc. Recently my body has been telling me to slowly get rid of meat (which is a strange concept for me considering my cultural upbringing). Also, if you eat 1 or 2 fruits per day, that should be the maximum sugar dose. The whole argument about how the brain needs sugar to function as an excuse to binge on candy is ignorant because you only need a small dose of natural unprocessed sugar. 2 or 3 teaspoons a day of honey for example is a maximum dose. It is also important to be in balance with the day and night cycles and go to sleep before midnight. You can keep lying to yourself or be completely unconscious about what is fueling the unpleasant symptoms in your body so that you can continue to eat your bread and sugar aka insulin spiking items and remain in a declining health or you can discipline yourself and experiment with meditation and pure simple food. The 8/16 meal schedule, (where you let your digestive system rest for 16 hours and consume food in an 8 hour window) helped me rid of sugar and negative carb cravings. I eat from noon to 8pm, sometimes until 6pm. In the morning I just drink pure water. Take responsibility for your life so that you can help yourself and as a result everyone around will benefit. Although I believe in miracles and spontaneous healing, waiting around for those to happen in a state of sadness, pain. impatience, and frustration is probably not a wise idea. Do something that other people who healed did. I am asking all those true evolved souls who are healed enough to send protection to all souls who are on the path to healing. So that no negative outside interference exists in your field and in the field of anyone who is on the path to true awakening, no matter how slow or fast they decide to awaken and take responsibility for their health. With proper protection, the speed at which you heal is up to you, and you have a lot of power when it comes to your physical and emotional reality.
I recently bought a face serum with 24 K gold, so I got curious to understand why they put gold into skin care products..
I did a quick search and learned that gold can brighten and calm the skin. It helps skin to maintain youthful and smooth. During the time of Cleopatra, gold was commonly used for beautifying, rejuvenation, and curing all aspects of being.
Spiritually Gold has been used to purify and to encourage confidence, courage, determination, vitality, and creativity. It helps clear addictions to substances. Gold is believed to bring a joyful approach to life. It also symbolizes the heavenly realms and harmonizes well with diamonds and labradorite.
It was 80 degrees with some clouds that smoothed the effects of the powerful sunshine. A cool gentle breeze and perfect temperature water. Los Angeles vibes.
