Words mean so much and yet so little

Hey guys.

Have you ever sat and listened to the words that people use during your conversations and wonder why they use those particular words to tell you how they feel?

I have been doing a lot of thinking recently and have come to the conclusion that when people speak out of anger or with passion, they tend to use the words from deep within their soul: ‘I just can’t find the time’, ‘You never there for me’, ‘Time does not wait for anyone.’ ‘If you want it enough, you will make the time’ and so on.

People seem to change their minds of the words they use when they don’t have the time to think their answer through. I like to think that the answers that come from deep within and the raw feelings mean more to the person than the answers that they have thought about.

They say that when you are intoxicated, you tend to say exactly how you feel in a situation about a person or your surrounding and I honestly believe that this is true. I also believe that when you speak out of passion or anger, you mean what you say using the words that you always wanted to use.

Words hurt people in more ways than you realise. As true as the words are, your choice of words is what can harm a person not always what you trying to say or the tone that you are using but the words you use to tell them.

Take a step back and look at the words you using to tell someone how you feel and why you feel it. Have a look at the word choice and realise why it is you said that particular word.

Words can mean so much when said from the heart and so little when said out of guilt.

Have a great day

Time to change the world

Hello strangers.

I know I have been distant at the moment, I have been so busy writing for everyone else that I have forgotten to write for me.

It has been a long few weeks and I have had to overcome a lot of different mountains let alone obstacles. I have learned a lot though and I would like to share my biggest lesson I have learned.

When did we forget how to be children? Good question wouldn’t you say? I feel that once you have become an adult or you get out of school, you forget to love the small things in life. You forget to ask questions and look at the world with awe. My family mocks me and often tells me that I am immature and this is so far from the truth. I am financially stable, I have a full time job, I own a business and I make money by writing articles for overseas people and yet they think I act like a child. Truth is, I do act like a child because it keeps me grounded.

Life is hard and life is unfair however, life can be fun as well. I work a full day and come home to play Disney songs or get up to mischief with my dad because life is too short to be serious all the time. There are more people on anxiety medication or reflux medication caused by stress that the thought is actually making me sick.

Go outside and play like you played when you were children. Make a mess and laugh about it instead of screaming like an idiot about how much it cost. If you do not want it to get dirty, don’t buy it. It really is that simple!

Appreciate the small things in life like a dragonfly floating above the water or how astonishing bubbles are. If you walk past a bubble and do not want to pop it, there is something seriously wrong with it.

Take it from me, become a child from an hour a day and you will see how much better your life will become. You will be more relaxed and become more grateful for what you have.

Vanilla, scent of the Month

Vanillla1

Hi there.

I will be writing about different scents I use throughout the month and why I use them so that you can get an idea of what goes through my head when I change the scents I use for treatments and products that I make.

The scent for the month is Vanilla. I love Vanilla. It is inviting, calming, smoothing. It is easy on the senses and it is very good for your body. Vanilla is high in anti-oxidants and is healing for the skin. It has a very sweet smell and when added to products, it does not really change the colour of the product I am making.

I make a few products with it. I make lip ice, body scrubs, candles, I burn vanilla incense in my treatment room to give it a warm and inviting smell.

Vanilla goes great with mint, peppermint, rooibos and berries. So give Vanilla try and see how it will enhance your day and ring positive energies to your world around you.

Minty Fresh

There is nothing better than a cup of mint tea after a long day or mint infused creams to help relieve muscle pains…

Mint is an organic herb that you can grow in your back garden or even have in a pot in your kitchen. It is very easy to grow and loves water. All you need to do is grab a few stems from a friends house, plant it in some soil and water it daily. Watch how your mint grows like wind fire.

In terms of treating people, Mint helps with a few symptoms. First and foremost, after a very large meal one feels bloated and uncomfortable. Grab a few mint leaves, pour boiling hot water over it, wait for it to infuse and enjoy. The mint will settle your stomach and take mild nausea away. Mint also helps with body aches and pains. You can infuse mint in your bath to help with your muscles as well as make an oil out of it.( place the leaves in grape seed oil, close the lid tight and infuse the oil with the mint essence. This can take up to a month) Place the oil onto the area of concern and you have a home made natural oil.

Mint also helps boost your metabolism and all round a great herb to cook with.

So go grab your mint leaves today and start growing your very own herb or medicinal garden.

Namaste…

Breathe, Just breathe

Hello all my gorgeous viewers.

For my first ever post in my new meditation corner, I would like to teach you all the importance of breathing and giving yourself time out.

We all know that a deep breath in of Oxygen keeps us all alive. The oxygen circulates throughout our body helping our muscles, organs and so on stay healthy and alive. But how can breathing properly help us on a deeper level? A level of calmness and tranquility?

Firstly, you need to find yourself a spot. A spot that will become your safe zone and a place that you go to ground yourself and give yourself time out. My spot is a little area at the back of my house. It is quiet, peaceful and a place that is just mine.

For 10 minutes a day, I go to my spot, sit down on the ground and just breathe. The trick is, the deeper the breath, the deeper the relaxation. Before you start breathing, you need to clear your mind. No negativity allowed in this spot, no work or school drama. Just you and your positivity bubble. Now we are ready to breathe…

Sit in a comfortable position. You can play some meditation music if you would like or just listen to the sounds of nature. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Slowly taking deeper and deeper breaths. You need to focus on your breathing.

After 10 minutes, get up slowly and you are ready to face the day in a calmer and more tranquil mood. Remember, that you can do this as often as you need to. You can also have more than one spot. Can have one at home, one at work and find one when you even on holiday.

I like to start and end my day off with this simple but effective breathing technique.

Namaste
