Scentsy began with a simple idea — a safe, wickless alternative to scented candles — and quickly grew into one of the most successful direct selling companies in the world. This wickless concept is simply decorative ceramic warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame. I was surprised at how well the Scentsy distributed throughout the house with just one plug-in.......even my husband noticed...now that's saying something....
Unlike the traditional "party" companies, with Scentsy you can just go online to purchase, or create a "party" with the books or the internet.....how convenient is that! I'm sold....go to http://www.donnasdomain.scentsy.us/
This is my auragraph from the professional
Well....I did okay last night.....There was only about 11 people in attendance and they claimed they really enjoyed my presentation. These were very intuitive people and they attempted to draw an auragraph for a fellow attendee. The results were fabulous......at the bottom of the drawing I printed 4 lines so that they could interpret what they drew, and the person could later remember the symbolism. Before giving their drawings to the name that was on the top of the page, each auragraph was described and the reasons given for certain color choices and shapes.....Each person was pleasantly surprised at how well they were "read" by the other person. The whole concept was more for enjoyment rather than technical instruction, but I thought the results were pretty profound......who knew! Even those that said they were not "artists" realized it was more about the description than the quality of the drawing.
I had a "professional" auragraph done for me at a seminar. Upon receiving mine, I asked a lot of questions as to how the artist "saw" what to draw. I assumed she was looking at my aura (hence, the label "auragraph"), but I was told it was similar to a card or rune reading, only in picture form. Intrigued, I thought that anyone that was intuitive could experiment with this unique entertaining concept.
In preparation for the meeting, I constructed printed papers with a large circle in the center, a line at the top for the person's name, and 4 lines at the bottom for an interpretation of the 4 most prevalent images within the drawing. It gave a uniformity to the end product, and the visual that everyone had received a similar art form. Each person wrote their name in the upper right corner, and then the papers were collected and redistributed to different fellow attendees, who actually then did the drawing (reading) for that person.
When everyone was finished, each person said which name was on their paper and explained their intuitive drawing for that person. Some were very insightful.......to say the least.......and this was the first time they had ever heard of this concept. Anyone that was having a hard time analyzing their own drawn shapes and colors, raised it up for the entire group to view, and everyone contributed their thoughts as to a possible interpretation of the individual elements, and the artist, at that point, chose what resonated more closely to their "feelings" of what they had drawn and completed the last four lines at the bottom.
In the end......everyone had a fun and interesting time, including me......amazing!
Sorry for the long absence from my blog.....I received many emails asking if I threw in the towel......I was really trying to find my "passion", something that would motivate me to blog everyday. It is said that your passion should drive you........sounds like a description of a "guy" to me, but I finally realized I should "Just Do It".....hmmmmm.....did I borrow that from a commercial?
Tonight I'm actually the guest speaker for a group of enlightened friends ( I'm told as many as 20 may show up). This group got together last month (they usually meet during the school year and take a break during the summer months), and the first meeting after the summer lull, they share what they have read, researched, or any classes and seminars they have attended since the last get-together. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, but I jokingly said that it was just as well that I didn't, because with all the things that I could possibly share, I would have consumed everyone else's time. The hostess laughed at my attempt at humor and said "no problem, you can be the speaker for the entire next meeting".........DUH!....hence, my guest speaking engagement.
I'm preparing now.....and as I'm waiting for the printer to spit out all the copies for my handouts, I knew that I should log in and let the blogging begin.
I'll let you know how it turns out tonight.......should be a hoot!......NOT.
Blood vessels are essential to delivering the nutrients our organs need to survive. A term commonly referred to as angiogenesis, but they can also feed cancerous growths.
Treatments for halting the growth of cancer-feeding blood vessels could be key to treating tumors. This term is known as anti-angiogenesis. The Angiogenesis Foundation has listed 32 Dietary sources of naturally-occurring anti-angiogenic substances.
William Li (and his Youtube video: can we starve cancer?) makes a great case on pre-eliminating possible cancerous growth by changing our food consumption to include sources that impede the blood feeding these growths need.
William Li also charts cancer treatments, medicinal treatments and natural or vitamin sources and their relative importance in the treatment of cancerous growths.
Go to YouTube and watch the 24 minute video, as William Li describes his angiogensis teleseminar for TED.....it's worth the time; obviously FOOD for thought, and the direction we should all be turning to, to avoid obesity, tumors and the big "C".
I think the caption speaks for itself....but further research online also brought up some interesting facts.....
(According an article at Bodybydesign.com )
A normal adult is about 70% water. The brain is about 85% water ( brain function depends on having abundant access to water) and our blood over 90% water. Water is critical within our cells and between them. We can go without food for almost two months, but without water only a few days.
Under normal conditions, an adult body loses 8 to 12 cups of water a day. This increases when we are ill, exercise heavily or are in hot climates. We lose a significant amount of water every day through sweating, urination, bowel movements and even breathing. This water must be replaced in order for our body to keep functioning properly. If you become dehydrated, your body rations and recycles water for its most critical needs and all water losing functions are reduced. Toxic wastes are dumped into body tissue, fat, joints and muscles instead of being eliminated.
Water removes waste materials from our body. Without enough water, these wastes would build up within our tissue.
Water for our lungs, which must be moist to take in oxygen and excrete carbon dioxide. It’s possible to lose a pint of liquid each day just exhaling.
Water for vital chemical reactions in our digestion and metabolism.
Water to carry nutrients and oxygen to the cells through the blood.
Water to lubricate our joints.
Water for the body to produce necessary hormones.
Water to help regulate our body temperature.
Water to help our muscles work efficiently.
Water for the body to absorb the essential substances in the food we eat.
Water is needed after a massage, to help flush out toxins and waste materials that have been stirred up, or created, in your tissue during the session and before Reiki treatments to help the flow of energy.
Water gives the brain the electrical energy for all brain functions, including thought and memory processes.
(According to Dr. Corinne Allen, founder of the Advanced Learning and Development Institute, brain cells need two times more energy than other cells in the body. Water provides this energy more effectively than any other substance.)
When your brain is functioning on a full reserve of water, you will be able to think faster, be more focused, and experience greater clarity and creativity. Daily hydration will not only help with better thinking, it can help prevent attention deficit disorder in children and adults. (as stated in an article by Merlin Hearn)
And according to the Mayo Clinic, the average adult loses more than 80 ounces of water every day through sweating, breathing, and eliminating wastes.
Drink Up! .......It's a good thing(as Martha Steward might say)
I found this food chart on the web. It's a fabulous and easy tool to re-adjust what kinds of foods we're ingesting. All recent material with regard to cancers, say that those cells can't survive in an "alkaline" enviroment. That said, I think the most obvious direction in changing our food choices, is to switch to alkaline forming foods. My first change was to drink more water with lemon.....got to start somewhere........
Let me know what you're doing.....comment below
I am taking a new direction with this website. I meandered around finding my niche', and it seems I always come back to what I research the most......"alternative life choices". Anything to do with new products, interesting homeopathic choices, new recipes (maybe healthier), alternatives that help create a better lifestyle or just healthier bodies.....and how our mind influences how our bodies react to external input. You have to go with your passions....let's see if this helps me create a better website. Thanks for all those that have been checking in so far......
I have been doing a lot of research lately and decided to change up this site. Also starting a newsletter to my email friends, so I hope you click on my "contact" page and sign up.
Interesting topics, cool finds, and some tasty recipes.....how about a Haiku or two?????
Thanks for checking in......
I just read a fabulous story about a young family with three Autistic boys.
Below is a story written by Ron Gorski and his encounter with a homeless man in Ohio.....brought tears to my eyes....Blessings to Ron & his family.
He also started a support group for families with autism, and while on his page he also wrote an article about the
"10 Things my Autistic kids wished you knew":
1. I’m sorry I have fits but I’m not a spoiled brat. I’m just so much younger on the inside than I am on the outside.
2. I’m easily overwhelmed because I see and hear everything. I hear the lights hum and clock tick. Everything is so loud it makes my head hurt all the time and my eyes hurt from all the bright lights.
3. I’m not stupid, I’m actually very smart. I just don’t learn the way you want me to. Please learn about Autism so you know how to help me better understand what you are trying to teach.
4. Please don’t be mad at mommy and daddy because we don’t come over for holidays or birthdays. They really want to go but I don’t do well at another person’s house. It’s too overwhelming for me and they know that. They don’t go because they love me, NOT because they don’t like you.
5. Please have patience with me. I try really hard to make good decisions but I can be very impulsive at times.
6. Yes, I have Autism but that doesn’t mean I’m less of a person because of it. If anything, I’m actually more of a person in spite of it.
7. My house might be messy sometimes. It’s because my mommy and daddy spend all their time trying to find new ways to help me or teach my brother to talk..
8. Just because I can’t talk doesn’t mean I don’t understand what you are saying. My feelings can be hurt just like yours.
9. I wish my mommy and daddy knew how much I love them. I have a really hard time with emotions and I don’t always like to be touched. But I love them more than anything in the world, even more then my Lego’s.
10. I know I can be frustrating but don’t tell me I won’t amount to anything because I have Autism. If you love and support me I WILL do great things in my life in spite of my challenges.
