Sedona’s Super Lunar Energy Retreat

Sedona’s Super Lunar Energy Retreat

Sedona 1We just returned from Sedona during the super moon.  I always wanted to go to Sedona. It was one of those bucket list places and once I heard it was a special time I wanted to experience Sedona’s super lunar energy being that is was a super full moon.

I can say that some people are sensitive to energy while others are not.  Sedona is a beautiful place with a lot of different things to do.  From religious, metaphysics, holistic to hiking to water activities, I would recommend going there at least once in your life. The locals say there are more crystals and magnetic energy in the rock and ground around us. That is the reason they say there is so much more energy there.Montezumas Castle

Now the super moon, I didn’t feel the energy in combination with the vortexes.So I don’t know. But what I do know is that it is a beautiful place and I will remember it forever. We did some sight seeing.  Visited the Montezuma’s Castle, did some hiking and ate some good food.  I would recommend Sedona for anyone to vacation.Sedona and Super Moon

Art of Love vs Act of Love

Art of Love vs Act of Love

3rd Date Rule

3rd Date Rule

The ART of love is much more than the ACT itself – Kama Sutra

This is so true. There are 24hrs in a day. Lets be real maybe 1hour of that is sex. When that is done you still have the rest of the time of the day to live. Don’t get me wrong, sex can be blissful. But once the euphoria leaves you what’s next? The art of love. In bed and out of bed. Keep that mindset of the art. Make your experience passionate and unbridled and that feeling of positivity will overflow through the rest of the day.

Peace and wellness.

Common Sense Bicycle Safety

Riding a bicycle is good in many different ways.  But is riding a bicycle safe especially in the street? There needs to be a serious discussion about bicycle safety these days.  There needs to be a common sense bicycle safety discussion.

I’ve seen with my own eyes two bicyclist get hit by cars.  One guy was pinned under the car moaning in agony.  About 10 guys had to lift the car off of him before the fire department came.  My friend who is an avid rider says he has been hit twice as well.  He lives to talk about it going threw a Jaguars windshield.  There is a saying you can be right or you can be dead right.  The thing is if I were a cyclist I know I would loose in any automobile accident out there.  Even if I have the right-of-way and all, if a car hits me I am going to loose.  With that in mind I’m going to limit my time in the actual street.  I ride on the sidewalk as much as possible and ride in bicycle lanes.  I do not ride on busy streets at all period.

There are actual laws that make it legal for riders to take up a whole lane in the street.  I understand the intention, but I also understand that this is a catastrophe waiting to happen.  Cars get rear-ended all the time. Now imagine a bike getting rear ended by a car.  This defies common sense to me.  All it takes is one person driving to make a mistake and bam.

If cyclists ride and respect cars then I think it will be better for both parties.  Use common sense when riding.  Don’t take up to much space in the street if there isn’t a designated bike path or lane.  Remember you are not indestructible.  Even if you are right and not at fault in a car involved accident, regardless of all that you may still die or get seriously injured.  Now is that worth it?

To sum it up, cyclist just need to exercise common sense bicycle safety and realize you are not a car and stay in your lane.  We can all hope drivers respect cyclist too.  But their life isn’t on the line.

Living a Balanced Life

Living a Balanced Life

Helping with balance

Helping with balance

Maintain balance so you won’t fall off. If you do fall, then all you have to do is get back up. That which doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger so as long as you get up you will be stronger. This is where living a balanced life comes in.

All work and no play makes jack a dull kid. I explained to many people that college is more than just going to class. If that’s what you did and that’s it then you missed out. You hear the term “college experience” it means the extra curricular activities. That means going to games, being apart clubs and going to parties. I tell people college didn’t make me any smarter. What it did do is teach me how to be balanced, time manage and strive under pressure. It taught me the importance of networking. I learned being friends to the professors and participating in class ensured I got a good grade if I was on the borderline. Being a part of clubs I learned which classes to take and which ones motto take. I met all kinds of people some I’m still friend’s with.

I now make sure I have a work/life balance too. If I put too much time into work and I can’t live, meaning all I do is go to work and work late, go home and eat and then do it all over again then that is not balance. That’s not living. Why work like that if you can’t live. I don’t have a problem with working hard. In fact I encourage it but reward yourself to and spend time with friends and family. Take that vacation. It’s all about living a balanced life.

Living a balanced life is important in overall wellness. Always ask yourself am I living a balanced life.

Falling Out with a Friend

I was recently asked a question, should I reach out to a friend that I have had a falling out with?  They haven’t spoken in years, but recently they dreamed about that person.  That is a tough question; reaching out to a friend who you have a falling out with is not easy.  It most certainly is not a must.  But it can bring closure.

Bringing closure.

Some might say,  you had the falling out for a reason and for that they deserve to be in your past.  Now this is different from friends and ex’s.  Ex’s deserve to be in your past in my point of view.  You must move forward with your life.  The same could be said about friends as well, but there is a difference.  Partners are held to a higher standard than friends, simply because there is a commitment involved when you are in a relationship.  There ia an elevation of trust.  On the other hand you and your friend/s don’t owe anything to each other but friendship.  Most people have different friends.  They have work friends, old school buddies, childhood friends, frat brothers etc.  You don’t have to go to bed with them or talk to them regularly, or consider them a life partner.  You are just there to have fun, talk to and be informal.  Which is important.

Falling out with a Friend

So now since we distinguished the difference between boyfriend/girlfriend relationships from platonic friends we can come up with the solution.  If the falling out was over something trivial that escalated to something major, then I would say life is short.  It doesn’t hurt to extend an olive branch.  But do so with care, it might be rejected.  So I would say be distant meaning just clear your chest and be done, and what happens after that doesn’t matter because you made the effort and tried.  Most people can’t be mad forever so if it means you stay friends from a distance then so be it.  Now if the falling out with your friend is over something serious, like loaning money to them and they are not paying you back or they slept with your partner.  Screw them.

Life is to short for trivial disagreements.  If your falling out with your friend fits into something that is trivial and you have the urge to bury the hatchet, and its for you to feel better then why not.  Just don’t go into it expecting a lot and you will be fine.

Ginger Garlic Tea with Lemon, Natural Cures

Ginger Garlic Tea with Lemon, Natural Cures

The ingredients ginger, garlic and lemon

The ingredients ginger, garlic and lemon

Here we go, another wellness soup recipe.  Flu season is among us. After some research it seems ginger and garlic tea is a well known natural cure for cold and flu symptoms.  So since someone got me sick (I won’t say any names) I was advised to try this remedy. So I did.

What I did was crush two cloves of garlic and chop up the same amount of ginger. I squeezed a quarter of a lemon and about a teaspoon of honey. Boiled some water and let it seep/marinate for 10 mins before I started to drink it.

I’m currently on my second cup. So we will see if I feel better tomorrow. Let’s hope for the best. I have a cough and my bones ache. No runny nose so far which is good. This is my second day of sickness. I haven’t taken any meds today. The only thing was a basic night time cold pill last night.

It actually tastes pretty good. It also seems to make me more awake. I do know garlic is a natural antibiotic. Actually both of my grandfathers lived into their mid 90’s staying active until the end. They would say it was the garlic tea they both drank daily that aided with their longevity. Garlic also lowers your blood pressure as well. We will see.

This is recipe of wellness soup, tea style. I’m going to comment tomorrow to give you an update. This ginger garlic tea seemed to help. I also like to bombard my body with vitamin c as well regardless. If you tried it I hope it works for you.

The Wolves Inside of Us

A battle of two wolves inside of us.

A saying about wolves inside of us that I like.  This comes from a story of a grandfather and a grandson of good and bad in us all.  The grandfather explains to the grandson that we all have good and bad inside of us.  They battle for control inside of us.  They are wolves.  The grandson asks which one wins.

 

There is a battle of two wolves inside of us all.

One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority, superiority false pride and ego.

The other is good.  It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, compassion, kindness, empathy, and truth.

The wolf that wins?  The one you feed.

Indoor Plant Benefits

Indoor Plant Benefits

 

House Plant

House Plant

 

There are genuine positive benefits to houseplants.  Indoor plants have freshened the air in my house and took away the stale air smell.

I was having a real problem.  I would leave for work in the morning and if I didn’t leave a window open, my entire house would smell stale.  It became embarrassing if I were to have company over, and I didn’t have time to air the house out, it would smell stuffy and stale.  I’ve heard indoor air is more toxic and polluted than outside air so I thought this might be an example of that and something I need to address.

I know from biology class that we breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide while plants breathe in carbon dioxide and release oxygen during photosynthesis.  With that in mind I determined I needed some more plants for inside the house.  I had a small bamboo plant and a Philodendron plant already.  That wasn’t enough so  I purchased a medium sized money tree and a large hanging Boston fern to start.

I had them for about 2 days and I didn’t pay attention to any difference in air quality. I didn’t notice a difference until I went on vacation for a couple days.  I came back and the house smelled really fresh.  I was actually surprised.  I didn’t think it would work that good, just by adding 2 more plants.

It is true plants and people have a natural partnership.  Houseplants can increase oxygen levels indoors and that is beneficially to us. They help our respiratory processes since the plants also release vapor increasing humidity in the air, a natural humidifier. Plants not only are great for producing oxygen but also contribute to a Zen feeling.   The green color that the plants possess soothes the mind; a type of color therapy, the same with flowers.

House Plants do more than just brighten up a room with color and living energy they can clinically reduce stress, and remove contaminants.   Plants are also known to have relaxing effects on the mind. So not only do indoor plants freshen the air indoors but houseplants are pleasing to the eye and they bring real health benefits to your body as well.

Happily Ever After Exists

Happily Ever After Exists

I was recently asked questions, Is “happily ever after” only a fairy tale? Can two people make a fairy tale come true? Is it all myth, figment of the imagination, or is there really some truth in it?  The short answer is yes, yes and yes.

First off, we are not in a perfect world, so you can’t expect that perfect spouse.  If you start off with that attitude then you took your first step to living happily ever after.  This doesn’t mean you except the first guy or gal the comes your way.  What it does mean is that it is ok to have exceptions to your own dating rules when you have something that is different than all the rest in a good way.

Maybe you would never date a cop or someone who has a child whatever.  What if that was the only thing that hung you up.  Would you be willing to give up a potential happy ever after because of that?  Look if finding the perfect person was easy then no one would be on these dating sites for years, going out to bars and clubs, and so on.  Then you get those who want to advance in their career and in doing so lets their youth pass them by.  Or you get those who started a family with the wrong person and is divorced, not paying attention to the signs, the signs that were more than just an exception to the rule, but a sign to get out. It starts with attitude and knowing yourself and being comfortable with yourself.

The thing is to have someone who is easy.  I mean easy to get along with, can vibe with, are sexually attracted to and who makes your soul sing from your stomach to your brain. Not butterflies but something more, and all those feelings are mutual between the two of you.  Again it is not easy but it exists so stop looking and just start experiencing life and bam it might just appear one day then you might be on your way to living happily ever after, like in the fairy tales.

Happy Times
