Theater and Kickball

Well, UIL-One Act Play late night rehearsals are over. No more late night dinners…no more waiting in the car for more than an hour…no more figuring out how to get my little one home, no more stressful talk about actors having a hard time with lines. Theater season is over folks. It’s not only a stressful time for Emoree, but for me too….

Towards the end of the season, I humbly volunteered for another project. “Humbly” being the proactive word choice here….Let me tell you how that went down…

Interview with the Psychic-Mary Rohde

Happy Samhain to you all! I recently stumbled upon an opportunity to get closer to a friend of mine (who also happens to own my favorite metaphysical shop in the Bay Area of Corpus Christi, Texas). Her shop is full of wonderful trinkets, loads of reiki charged candles, dream catchers, stones and crystals, dried herbs, incense, jewelry, journals, books, and so much more. Her space is wickedly inviting (no pun intended), and she’s beautiful company. You are immediately entranced with the scent of the day upon entering her store and probably some chatter that always includes educating her customers about the metaphysical world. She is full of love and positive intentions. She is also HUMAN. I wanted so much to highlight this aspect of our psychic friends. They have a personal life and views of their own on top of their abilities, which can be exhausting. Mary is wonderful and uses her abilities to heal and educate. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed interviewing!

I hope they know…

flower-life-and-deathOver the last few weeks I have made it mandatory to meditate daily. Finding your Zen isn’t easy. It’s not always about finding answers. I think a lot about my daughters and their personalities. I think a lot about the decisions they will come to make and how those decisions will affect their lives….and mine–ha.
Lately, I have been thinking about not thinking at all. I find it difficult to clear my thoughts and let my mind just be…do you find it difficult?

This morning I had an epiphany, more-so, remembered something I read about someone’s final words (all while driving my little 15 minute to work). We work so hard to achieve monetary wealth; this physical life with physical problems.
Why are we born naked, in such a primitive, dirty way? Why then, are we meant to suck our mother’s breast for food, made to get warm with skin to skin contact and suck poison with our mouths when the bee stings?

Homemade Rose Oil

Homemade Rose Oil!

Herb infused oils are a great way (for your wallet), to add that extra punch you need in your scrubs, balms, and lotions. They add a lovely natural scent, plus you get the properties of the herbs AND the oils…yaaay us, right!?

Now, there isn’t an exact science to making your own herb infused oils. There is a lot of play here, so adjust as you see fit.

My Zen

20160802_103607[1]Over the years I’ve found things that calm my mind and my spirit. I have learned that “my own little hell” was actually several life lessons; pieces of a puzzle I don’t get to see yet. I get angry for having to go through a hardship and then I get angry again for understanding why I had to experience that hardship.
Eventually the dust settles and then all seems okay again…until life decides to throw the next curveball. Continue reading “My Zen”
