E N E R G Y…. Although I have been an energy healer, channeler, and Spiritual Intuitive for about 7 years now I STILL think the word “energy” sounds SO new age-ish, don’t you?  Let me simplify and demystify this simple word’s meaning, and explain what healers like myself know energy to be.

Energy = Free floating emotions and thoughts. That is way more simple than you thought it would be, right?
Now that you know this I would like to invite you to take a moment after you read this article and think back to a time when you were in a GREAT mood, TOTALLY loving life, then you walked into a house or business and immediately felt edgy, or even angry, for no reason what so ever!  It has happened to me countless times and unfortunately, before I understood “energy”, it’s effect on me, was the basis of my depression, anxiety, and several other issues I struggled though for 16 years.
In 2009 I developed the ability to SEE energy, auras, angels and spirit guides with my eyes so I became driven to understand how it all worked.  I quickly learned that my sudden mood shifts we’re caused by another person’s energy, or free floating thoughts and emotions, entering into what I call my snow globe or in other words my personal bubble and field of consciousness.  The mood shift I would experience as their energy came into my snow globe was due to my brain processing those experiences as my own.
Here’s an example: Let’s say it’s date night at the house.  All is great, but you need to run out to buy butter for the popcorn.  You happily trot on out to the store while your happy date patiently waits for you to get back. While at the store you get rung up by a lady whose spouse is FURIOUS with her!  She does not share this with you.  In fact, you hardly say a few words and then smile and wave goodbye.  Five minutes later you walk through the door of your house and you get a nagging feeling that your date is FURIOUS at you!  Your mind scans for
reasons…. Did I take too long?  Did I buy the wrong butter?  Your mind pulls up a memory of a time 5 years ago when you were late for a date and your partner at that time yelled and screamed and broke up with you.  You begin to panic!
Meanwhile, your emotions start to build into defensiveness because you know you didn’t do anything wrong!  WHY is he SO FURIOUS!?  Although you can’t seem to think of why he could be mad, your mind (usually in the background) will continue to scan for reasons as to why that cashiers energy is actually your own.   This is the “minds” job!  To process the energy that passes through “our bubble” and find a person, a place, a memory, that matches the energy it is encountering.  In this case the cashier’s energy of being in trouble with her spouse got into your field and now you are absolutely positive that without a fraction of a doubt you are in BIG BIG trouble!  You even have a SICK feeling in the pit of your stomach that you may even think it’s your intuition telling you something!!  Has anything similar EVER happened to you?
This “phenomenon” is SERIOUSLY how most fights start not only between lovers and family, but most misunderstandings in the work place revolve around messy energy and the assumptions that we allow our minds to pull from our data base of past experiences that come with it.  All it takes is one person assuming one thing based on a “gut feeling” they get about why a coworker/family member happens to be doing something and then things start to spiral out from there.
So let’s go back to the happy couple watching their movie.  If she doesn’t realize QUICKLY that she picked up the cashier’s “my husband is so mad he is going to leave me because I cheated on him” energy she will most likely give him the silent treatment all night because he is not telling her why he is REALLY mad at her and then he will turn around and assume she has done something wrong and start accusing her (out loud or with in his own mind) of things she did not do.  Do you see where I am going with this???
This can happen with ANYTHING because we are all big bubbles that I like to refer to as snow globes of emotions living our lives and most people, especially those under age 65 are empathic.  Empathic people can feel other people’s emotions and if they are not very careful they will go through life experiencing things based on emotions that are not all theirs.  I believe that mental illness, addiction, alcoholism, and most of the “disabilities” children are being labeled with these days are stemmed from the human ability to feel other’s emotions and read other’s minds while being completely unaware that we are doing so.
Starting right now if you want to see how sensitive you are to energy and you want to see how it all works I invite you to just say in your head “Higher self I ask that you stay connected to me and make me aware of the energy that should not be in my snow globe and I ask that you remove it immediately so that it does not effect me”.
Then all you have to do is notice what you notice when you go from one place to another running errands or to a friend’s house.  Also, notice how work feels when you are there alone as opposed to when certain people arrive.  Places change with the people that are in them.  If you notice that your mood changes instantly at ANYTIME and that the mood is not going away as the higher self removes the energy it may mean that you are holding onto the energy for some reason.  It is usually because the energy represents something you have personally gone through so your mind wants to solve it and therefore hangs onto it fordear life.  If this is the case rather than experiencing the emotions of that awful break up from 2005 all over again you can do the following: (at the bottom there is a video that walks you though this)
Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and say in your head: “I am a snow globe.” Imagine that you are the statue in the middle of a snow globe with snowflakes and water swirling all around you.  Feel what it feels like to be in your snow globe then say “I am alone in my snow globe, I am my creator self” and imagine a HUGE ball of bright white or golden light dropping down over you, into your snow globe, down through your head, through your body and out your feet into the center of the earth where anyone or anything that is not you and that is not in alignment with your highest self will be flushed away from you and transmuted into unconditional love using the energy of the earth and the white light above you.  This can take you 30 minutes if you want to make it a meditation or you can do it in 20 seconds when walking into the office.  The key here is the you are becoming aware of the energy around you and learning that you and only you are in control of it and if something or someone has energy around them that makes you feel badly, you can protect yourself and clear yourself regardless of the situation because you are the creator of your own reality!
Now, go about your day and maybe just maybe this week you can make it through with out any arguments or mood swings. haha!  YEAH right, huh?  But hey, let’s give it a shot anyway!

5 Easy Soaks To Rebalance Good Bacteria And Banish Stinky Feet Forever

No one likes having stinky feet.
It can also be pretty embarrassing to have to take off your smelly shoes around other people.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not actually sweat that makes your feet smell, but the bacteria on your skin that feed off of moisture.
If you can control these bacteria, your feet will be squeaky clean and fresh-smelling.
These soaks feel great after a long day on your feet.
There’s nothing better than a little pampering mixed into problem-solving!

1. Simple Epsom Salt Foot Soak

epsom salt foot soak
Epsom salt neutralizes odor. It also helps soothe aching feet and replenish your body’s magnesium levels.
  • 1/2 cup of Epsom salt
  • 8 cups of warm water
  • A large bowl or bucket to soak your feet in
  1. Dissolve ½ cup of Epsom salt in 8 cups of warm water.
  2. Soak your feet for 30 minutes 1-2 times daily (twice a day is a good idea if you’re a gym-goer).
  3. Dry thoroughly.

2. Sage and Rosemary Soak

herb soak
Sage has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
Rosemary is also antibacterial/antifungal, and both herbs are astringent, which means that they help minimize the production of sweat from your feet.
Less sweat means a less ideal environment for bacteria.
  • 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary
  • 1-2 teaspoons of dried sage
  • A large bowl or bucket to soak your feet in
  1. Fill a foot basin with boiling water and add the herbs to it.
  2. Let it steep until it is cooled down just enough to put your feet in.
  3. Soak for 30 minutes 1-2 times daily.
  4. Dry thoroughly.

3. Bubbly Baking Soda and Citrus Soak

baking soda foot soak
Baking soda is one of the best all-around cleaning agents, but it’s also a true miracle worker when it comes to your feet.
It naturally helps control odor, kill bacteria/fungus, and softens your skin. Lemon acts as an astringent and has a wonderful, fresh scent.
  • ¼ cup of baking soda
  • 8 cups of warm water
  • Juice of one lemon
  • A large bowl or bucket to soak your feet in
  1. Place baking soda in your foot basin and add cover approximately with water.

4. Very Vinegar Soak

Some people may find that vinegar is smelly on it’s own, but it actually does a great job of getting rid of odor.
It creates an acidic environment that bacteria have a hard time surviving in, which kills off unpleasant smells.
  • 1/2 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 5-8 cups of warm water
  • A large bowl or bucket to soak your feet in
  1. Fill a foot basin with water, add vinegar and mix.
  2. Submerge your feet and soak for 15 minutes twice a day.
  3. Rinse with cold water.
  4. Dry completely.

5. Black Tea Foot Soak

black tea food soak
Soaking your feet in black tea is a popular natural remedy that fights foot odor.
Although it may seem unusual, the cure has lasted the test of time and many people who’ve tried it swear by this method.
  • 5 bags of black tea
  • 4 cups of hot water
  • A large bowl or bucket to soak your feet in
  1. Pour boiling water into your foot basin, and add the tea.
  2. Allow the tea to steep for 10 minutes and let it cool down.

Here’s Where Your Body Fat Goes When You Lose Weight (You’ll Be Surprised!)

Many dietitians and personal trainers believe that when you burn fat during a workout, that fat is being used up as fuel for energy or heat.
But where does the by-product or waste of this metabolic reaction go?
As it turns out, when your body breaks up the molecules that make up your fat cells in your body, the existing atoms don’t just cease to exist.

What Are Canker Sores?

Unlike cold sores, canker sores don’t occur on the surface of your lips and they aren’t contagious.
Most canker sores are round or oval with a white or yellow center and a red border. They form inside your mouth — on or under your tongue, inside your cheeks or lips, at the base of your gums, or on your soft palate. (source)
There are two types of canker sores (1):
  1. Simple canker sores that appear 3-4 times a year and last up to a week. They typically occur childhood and adolescence.
  2. Complex canker sores which are reoccurring and somewhat unpredictable.
Common triggers include (2,3):
  • Food triggers : acidic foods, coffee, chocolate or spicy foods
  • Stress : Emotional stress and hormonal imbalance.
  • Injury : biting your tongue or cheek,or injury from brushing or flossing
  • Smoking : Canker sores may appear even years after you quit.
  • Nutritional deficiency : including vitamin B-12, zinc, folate (folic acid) or iron.
Most canker sores are harmless and go away on their own. However, you should call your dentist or naturopath if you have (4):
  • Unusually large sores.
    • Sores that are spreading.
    • Sores that last 3 weeks or longer.
    • Intolerable pain despite avoiding trigger foods and taking over-the-counter pain medication.
    • Difficulty drinking enough fluids.
    • A high fever with the appearance of the canker sores.
Here’s a list of 5 effective home remedies to heal canker sores faster:

1. Chamomile Tea

Chamomile’s active compound, bisabolol, is traditionally used to treat inflammations of the skin and mucous membranes, and for various bacterial infections of the skin, oral cavity and gums (5).
To use, sip on chamomile tea before bed or apply a high quality organic tea bag directly on the sore in the morning.

2. Honey

Honey has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial compounds that help speed along the healing of surface wounds and ulcers (6).
Simply take a teaspoon of raw organic honey before bed and after every meal.

3. Salt Water

Salt will kill any bad bacteria that’s festering in your ulcer. In the morning, mix 1 teaspoon of Himalayan saltinto 1 cup of warm water. Swish it around for 30 seconds, then spit it out. Repeat after every meal.
In the evening, drink warm lemon water about 2 hours before bed. You canker sore should be nearly vanished by the time you wake up.

4. Aloe

In addition to its anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties, aloe vera contains amino acids and B1, B2, B6 and C vitamins, which help promote healing and reduces pain (7).
Using fresh aloe gel, make a mouth rinse by diluting a teaspoon of the gel into a cup of water. Swish it around your mouth for two minutes and do not rinse.
You can also use a cotton swab to apply aloe gel directly unto the canker sore. Leave it on for 1 to 2 minutes and repeat 4-5 times a day until fully healed.

5. Yogurt

Yogurt containing active acidophilus cultures can be beneficial and immensely effective in prevention and cure of stubborn cold sores, even those unresponsive to conventional treatment (8).

Bonus Tip : Change Your Toothpaste

Toothpastes that contain sodium lauryl sulfate are known to cause cancer sores in some people (2). Instead, opt for an all-natural toothpaste or make your own.

New Study: Parent Technology Use Linked To Child Behavior Problems

For many parents, the amount of time they spend on screens seems immaterial - after all, when they spend time with their kids, their kids should know they're loved. A new study, though, suggests that when it comes to screen time, that may not be enough.

In particular, technoference - the term for interference caused by technology, such as parents' screens - can damage children's development and growth. In fact, it may take very little screen time to result in behavioral problems for parents' children.

The results come for a study out of Illinois State University, where lead researcher Brandon McDanielsurveyed 170 American families. Most families had more than one child, and parents were, on median, in their early thirties.

McDaniel's results showed technoference increased behavior problems in children. The problems included acting out, turning inward with feelings, exhibiting aggressive behavior, or crying spells. 

Technoference, McDaniel says, may occur during face-to-face conversations or routines such as mealtimes or play and can make children feel like an intrusion has occurred when a parent interacts with digital technology during time together. The study shows it takes just a small amount of interference for a child exhibit behavior problems.

On average, mothers and fathers perceived that two devices interfered with interactions with their child at least once a day. Almost half of the families reported techoference 3 or more times a day. Mothers perceived their phone use as being more problematic than fathers, but both mothers and fathers associated interference with greater behavior problems and more child screen time.

And the study results may have been more severe had they been more closely monitored - as currently constructed, the study relied entirely on what parents self-reported, both in terms of technology use and child behavior.

“We need to critically examine our device use. This is just the day and age that we live in. These devices are designed to absorb our attention,” McDaniel said“Yes, you’re going to be distracted sometimes, but we need to try to minimize those distractions, realizing that your children are not always going to be little.”

In other words, children see technoference as a statement, by their parents, that technology is more important than they are. Technology breaks the attachment between parent and child.

Is that really the message you want to be sending to your child?

25 Life Changing Lessons to Learn from Buddha

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” 
~ Buddha

There are so many beautiful, powerful and life changing lessons I have learned from studying Buddhism and from reading many of Buddha’s quotes. And today I want to share 25 of these beautiful lessons with you.

Here are 25 Life Changing Lessons from Buddha:

1. Love heals all things.

“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.” ~ Buddha

2. It’s not what you say but what you do that defines you.

“A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.” ~ Buddha
“A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”

3. The secret of good health is to live fully in the NOW.

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~ Buddha
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

4. Who looks inside awakens.

“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.” ~ Buddha

5. Words have the power to both hurt and heal.

“Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.” ~ Buddha

6. Let it go and it will be yours forever.

“You only lose what you cling to.”

7. No one can walk your path for you.

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” ~ Buddha

8. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

9. Be kind to all.

“Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.” ~ Buddha
“Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.”
“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

10. Don’t believe everything you are told to believe.

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ~ Buddha

11. As you THINK so shall you be

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon…. If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”

12. Let go of fear.

“The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.”

13. The truth has a way of always leaking out.

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

14. Control your mind or it will control you.

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”
“It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.”

15. Doubt separates. Trust unites.

“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.”

16. Nobody is more deserving of your love than you yourself are.

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

17. Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.”

18. Spirituality isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.

“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.”

19. Replace jealousy with admiration.

“Do not be jealous of others’ good qualities, but out of admiration adopt them yourself.”

20. Look for peace within yourself.

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”

21. Let go of attachment.

“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”

22. Choose your friends wisely.

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.”

23. There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.

“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.”

24. Give up labels.

“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”

25. Love. Live. Let go.

“In the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?”
~love, Luminita💫
