Everything I never knew I would love - My first experience at a Korean Spa

She continued to communicate with me in her words, “up, down, flip, turn” and I obeyed and allowed her to do what she planned. She gently massaged rosemary and mint oils into my hair and scalp and wrapped my head in a warm towel. She massaged my face and painted on a cucumber and milk mask. She then placed warm hot towels across my body as she finished massaging my front side.

 I was jelly.

Funny thing about "Ah-ha" Moments

"Practice what you preach" ran through my head. I took a bath. I took a minute to walk away and get that solitude I crave. (fun fact - people that can work hours on end in a dark and quiet room are most likely introverts, lol)  I felt bad doing it, guilty for not spending time with my kids, panicked the dishes weren’t done, and wondering if I was a bad person/mom/wife for taking that time.   But I grabbed a book and dove in.  Something had to be here printed in these pages for me to grasp onto.

War on Aging

"We'll take them both please" with a smile on my face as I watched hers wash over with surprised joy. It was such a feel-good moment you guys - my heart swelled - I felt like the best big sister in the world - and then the words came.....Words out of the cashier's mouth. Words that make your eyes squint up a bit and your lips pucker.

"WOW, I wish MY mom was that nice!"

This gradual decrease is responsible for us waking up one morning wondering who we see in the mirror. We recognize this as the appearance of thinner skin, wrinkles, fine lines and achy joints in the morning.  But here's the deal:  you can slow the effects of collagen loss, and you can also take steps to restore collagen production.

The wisdom of the last year

How we choose to answer the question I asked above, how we choose to look at the cards dealt to us over the last year, how we choose to think and act will only attract more of that energy.  If we think of ourselves instead of human beings having a spiritual experience - but rather spiritual beings having a human experience, there becomes a shift in perspective.

The Skinny on Serums

The other day I scheduled a post on Facebook with an image of my morning routine.  I was so excited for the feedback I received from it and thought this would be a perfect place to expand on some of the questions asked.   After all, if one person has questions, it is likely more people do, too. "I noticed you seem to be applying two serums based on this picture....what is the purpose? I thought you can only do one at a time? Maybe I'm wrong, lol"

Healing Energy Offered - Part 2

More and more people are seeing complementary ways to achieve wellness. Some medical practices only treat symptoms and never fully address the initial cause of the problem, or fail to look beyond the physical to address the mental or emotional state we have. Energy work can help you achieve wellness by addressing the physical, mental and emotional issues that can be holding you back from achieving connection and flow of mind, body, and spirit.

Getting Mindful

Not all days can be love and light days. Those are the days where you fight and make up (and now I've got Katy Perry in my head) and move forward. Or, those are the exact moments I am helping to communicate to you where you can take a step back and say to yourself

"Self, you are out of whack and this is not going well. Take a breather. Take those 30 seconds and unwind in order to reconnect my energy the way it needs to be in this present moment."
