Said a Blade of Grass

Several weeks ago, I ran across this post about Kahlil Gibran and his poem “Said a Blade of Grass”I can appreciate the point to the post as well as the poem, even though I’d never heard of this particular poet before. It got me thinking, and that’s the door where understanding can come in…

My Journey with Essential Oils

When I was a teenager, it seemed like I was constantly catching every virus that made a passing glance in my direction. Not only viruses, but then while the virus had me down, it would always develop into something worse. When I caught a cold, I would end up with strep throat or bronchitis. When I had the flu, I often caught something else at the same time. Over the counter cold and flu remedies sometimes helped a little for a short time, but usually not much, not for long, and often gave me some new nastiness to suffer. Eventually I would be given antibiotics for the bacterial infections that invariably lead to horrible yeast infections (seriously, I’d rather combat the flu). I’d get over the virus and the infections, finally begin to feel normal again, usually just in time to catch the next bug or a mutated version of what I just combatted. Essential oils finally (finally!) broke that cycle for me! Read the rest of this entry »

Enjoy Mom’s Day Week with Essential Oils

Posted on Updated on

Mother’s Day for me means beauty of all kinds, flowers, hearts, rainbows, the purity of a child’s unconditional love, all the natural abundance Mother Nature provides, and anything wonderfully unassuming. Maybe I’m a little biased because I had such a loving mother growing up, but I figure that’s in no way a bad thing. So when I found out about a free summit offered on essential oils to begin this week, I thought that’s perfect!

7 Good Reasons to Cut Yourself Some Slack

Posted on Updated on

Excellent!

Our Better Health

May 4, 2015      By Andrea Schulman

Ever have the feeling that you’re just not good enough? Though it’s pretty normal for people to beat up on themselves, doing so can make life a lot more challenging as it can cause anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. To keep negative, self-critical thoughts from dragging you down, here are a few reasons to cut yourself some slack!

1. Repeat after me: There’s no such thing as perfect! 

What would perfect even be? What’s its age, IQ, religious preference, and blood type?  How tall is it?  Is it outgoing and funny or introspective and thoughtful? Is it a student, a CEO or a stay at home parent? There’s no perfect way to be, we simply are what we are.   We are unique, and there’s nothing specific that we are supposed to do, be or have.

2. Everyone has struggles, problems and…

Everything is Energy

Posted on Updated on

 Einstein-EnergyH
If Everything is Energy, then energy really IS everything.

It’s no great stretch of the imagination that energy is apparent in natural elements like electricity, fire, water, etc. As humans, we harness that energy to power our lives with light, heat, plumbing, phones… Elemental energy is obviously a life of its own, sometimes guided by human hand, sometimes chaotically destroying whole towns.

Ranting on Stupidity

Posted on Updated on

I’m not prejudiced against anyone or anything… except Stupid People. Race, color, customs, country of descent/origin, religious beliefs, sexuality… all of that simply combines into beginning to describe who a person is. My usual reaction to any such differences from my own perspective is curiosity. Read the rest of this entry »

Life in The Now

Posted on Updated on

I have learned so much from having dogs. I know, that sounds cliche’ but seriously, it’s true! Dogs eat, sleep, play, work, breathe, LIVE in the NOW. Before dogs in my life, I had a very intellectual understanding of that concept: live in the moment, one step at a time, and all that. But what does that really mean? Sometimes it seems the human life is made up of yesterdays and tomorrows; right now is incidental. Dogs don’t care about what happened five minutes ago and they aren’t obsessing about what might happen five minutes from now – only humans do that. We constantly stress ourselves out over what we should or should not have done in the past and what we should or should not do in the future. I have to say, dogs have the right of it. Life is so much simpler and much more pleasant when you live for the now. Sure you still have to plan to pay your bills, buy food for dinner tomorrow, etc, but the obsessing over past/future has absolutely no good purpose! If you did something you’re not happy about, resolve not to do it again and move on. Reliving it over and over, wishing the outcome had been different and fantasizing as if it had gone differently, does what exactly? Hike the blood pressure, that’s what. Same with obsessing over potential future instances: they never go like you think they will, you never say exactly what you want to say, and people never respond exactly as you expect. So what’s the point? Stop obsessing and try living in the now for a while. You might find you like it here.
