MOM’s Spring Clean YOURSELF! When you feel good YOU look good!

MOM's  Spring Clean YOURSELF!  When you feel good YOU look good!

PastedGraphic-5

We all know about auras, but one other important thing to note about the energy surrounding you is that auras are like magnets. They are always picking up vibrational energies that are floating around, and they do so everywhere we go. That’s why it’s super essential to cleanse our auras freeing them of foreign vibrations and negative energies, especially if you are a particularly empathetic, intuitive person who picks up on other people’s energies. Luckily, it’s quite a simple process, and there are many ways to do it.

METHOD 1: VISUALIZE YOUR AURA

Go sit in a quiet, distraction-free zone in your house. Stay seated comfortably in a position you can relax in for about 15 minutes doing some de-stressing breathing exercises. Be conscious of what you’re doing, and be aware of your inhale and exhale movements. You can even meditate for a bit. Once you find yourself beginning to totally relax, form a white light in your mind and have it surround you. Allow it to flow throughout you, from the tips of your toes to the top of your head, and visualize it moving up and down your back near your spine. If you get distracted or thrown off, you can get yourself back on track by revisualizing the white light and controlling your breathing.IMG_8279

METHOD 2: DISCARD YOUR NEGATIVE ENERGY

We’ve all been around a downer person. You know, a person who is completely negative, always has something bad to say about any given topic, and generally has a big frowns face on more than a smiley one. This person affects more than just themselves, though; she’s distributing negative energy to you whenever you’re around her. Thus, your aura will get dimmer. One way to protect yourself is to make sure you surround yourself with more positive people than negative ones. Cut out the ones that are negative, once you figure it out. Find positive people who think like you, who always have a smile to offer, and who have kind souls. These are the people that can help offset the negativity collecting in your aura.chakra energy

METHOD 3: CLEANSE YOUR OWN NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

Still have negative energy wafting around? You might have to look inwardly make sure you are’t the poop in your life! Start paying attention to your thoughts. Are there a lot of negative ones? Take a look at them. Are they untrue, delusional, or paranoid? All the more reason to chuck them out. Focus on the bright side of things; it really does help! If you are having a really bad day, it’s okay to express your bad feelings, but don’t wallow in that place. Make your day a good one by treating yourself to your favorite tea. Play your favorite song of the moment. Find a friend to hang out with. If you notice that a negative thought is trying to creep in, confront it with a positive one. If you keep practicing this, you will be able to conquer the effects of negative thinking.images-22

METHOD 4: CREATE A PROTECTION BUBBLE

This is the most commonly practiced ways of protecting the aura. Practitioners praise it as a beautiful way to connect them to the Divine, and when it’s done in the mornings, it’s a defining positive note for the start of their days.

Here’s how you do it. Imagine white light coming down from the Divine, God, the Universe, whatever your higher power is. Connect this light to the crown of your head, and then let it spill out over you and down under your feet. You are now surrounded by a white light bubble. White is pure and thus, highly protective. It is also full of love from our Divine. Now that your bubble is around you, you are protected from any negative energy coming inside your bubble.

You can now change the color if you’d like to change the protection and power. You can also add mirrors to reflect away any negative energy if you are going somewhere you know will have negative energy or if it will have a large group of people.

METHOD 5: GET ENERGY HEALINGS

Sometimes you need to get your energies realigned, and an energy healing will clear any blockages you might have. Healers can also check for negative entities or emotional cords that may need to be cut. Don’t underestimate the power of these energy checkups, and they can impact your energy tremendously! You might find your mood swings, imbalanced emotions, or connections you can’t seem to get rid of are all fixed once your energy is realigned, and thus help you be at your best to protect your energy. I do energy clearing and have helped many people feel better. MOM's  Spring Clean YOURSELF!  When you feel good YOU look good!godmagic

METHOD 6: SMUDGE YOUR AURA REGULARLY

Smudging is a Native American practice using white sage to cleanse any negative energy. It’s similar to the house cleaning ritual we showed you in regards to Feng Shui. You can cleanse your house, people, and things. We recommend doing it after you’ve had a lot of people in your home, or after you’ve had a lot of energy drained.images

Why do we list so many methods? Because it can get boring doing the same thing every day, and everyone’s auras are different. Depending on the color and size of yours, you may respond differently to different methods, so try them all, mix them up, and figure out what works the best for you. Make sure you stay consistent though; bad energies do creep up on us at nearly every moment, so push them out and seize the day! Life is short be happy!

No Girl Scout Cookies this year, taking a break, from the battle field and giving my peeps a break!

I am making a donation to my daughters Girl Scout troop and calling it a day! The troop will gets more money that way!

 
refusebuygscookies_sized

I am taking a break this year and not because the Samoas aren’t called Samoas anymore (they’re now Caramel deLites), and I certainly do not have anything against the Girls Scout organization because we are a participants. I am just taking a break and here’s why.samoas1

When parents sell the cookies for their kids, I honestly feel as an entrepreneur that the kids lose the valuable lesson of selling and running a cookie business. I have bought over 50 boxes in the past just so my daughter can get the badge and we support the troop. We also have gone door to door and sold.  I see people haranguing, friends family and co-workers to buy. Maybe they should just ask for a donation for the troop. I know being a Girl Scout that that every troop likes selling a lot of cookies, but the reality in Westchester according to The Heart of the Hudson, for every $4.00 box sold  only .70 goes to the troop. This is one reason why I am going to forgo selling,  forgo walking around door to door with my daughter and just make a donation to the troop. The troop will then have more money and I will have less responsibility. We have already learned cookie selling skills from participating over the past five years selling for The Girl Scouts of America.

images-17 images-2I know she wont get her 100 cookie badge or the applause from the troop but I do think this is what works for us this year.  Friends and family, will have no problem finding the cookies in this over saturated GS cookie sale war zone. I love the Girl Scouts, but its business they are not going to turn down the sales, but I think they agree according to my research.

 When parents sell for the girls:“It’s a constant source of conversation,” said Michelle Tompkins, manager of media relations for Girl Scouts of the USA. “We love that the parents want to help their kids. There’s no malintent, but it is selling the kids a little short, not letting them learn the skills they want to teach.”goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and ethics, according to the Girl Scout cookies website

In NYC offices some buildings are becoming a cookie war zone. One woman told me she has to buy from four different women because they are her friends and she bought  from them last year. She said "I feel obligated, even though I do not want the cookies." Another father said the first thing his daughter says when he walks in the door is "HOW MANY DID YOU SELL DAD?". I think that says it all. 

I am an entrepreneur and do have a website for my business G2 Organics, but I do not think it's smart to set one up for cookie sales. There is also the threat of hackers who often view non-profit organizations as prime targets, said Akli Adjaoute, chief executive of the San Francisco-based security firm Brighterion. Compared to banks and mega-retailers — whose systems have been compromised in recent years –  criminals assume that non-profits "have no resources and no heavy investment on security,"  Adjaoute said. "And they're right." Im a mother and always a Girl Scout but this year, my gut tells me save the calories and make a donation.cookie-sales-kit-inside

Overprotective Parenting are you hurting or helping? The Doctor agree’s with me!

Unknown-6
Parenting today has become a profession with some muzzy's and daddy's!  I still can't believe what I see at times, lets let our kids grow up to be healthy productive adults. I think by smothering them and giving them everything its hurting them now and in the long run. We all see it with helicopter mothers, resulting kids living at home well in their 30's. or still being financially dependent, even when grown and have families which is worse. I have so much to say on the subject but time flies when on the radio especially when I'm enjoying the conversation with my hosts and call in guests. I like them both, and they give great advice in a fun easy listening style.

I'm a hands on Parenting Expert, and  Power Parenting Radio starring  is very informative and friendly the balance in the show is his lovely intelligent wife Carolyn listen it out it's  a great Parenting Radio Show So much to say on the subjects is a 

There's much to be considered when it comes to raising our kids today-and much to be frightened about. Parents are bombarded with stories of unsafe toys, violence in schools, cyber-bullying, teen sex, cyber-sexual predators, pedophiles loose on the streets, drugs, alcohol, obesity and the list goes on. When faced with this, who wouldn't worry?

However, many of these worries are overblown and unfounded. Crime-rates, early pregnancies, violence, school drop out rates and smoking have declined in recent years. In fact, children are generally safer today than in the past. Education, enforced safety measures and engineering of safety devices combine to make up this improvement.

More and more students are reaching university not knowing how to do things for themselves. Parents think they are helping young people by doing things for them but they are actually making them less independent. 

Overprotective parents send the message that their children can’t handle life’s challenges on their own. This can lead to a lack of self-confidence in these children. They may feel that if their parents don’t trust them with the freedom to make mistakes and tackle problems on their own, then they may not have the ability to succeed in life without the continued guidance of their parents. I say trust your parenting tools and let your kids, be. Be a loving caring parent, instead of "policing and trying to catch and prevent" the natural bumps of life. No guarantees either way so pray relax and trust your parenting skills. I also highly reccomend this book.11054470_404213373089169_5789462904959491834_n

“Where ya from?” Family outing go to NYC Tenement Museum then walk to the original Benito One in the heart of Little Italy

What? Kids drink beer, women threw bricks in butchers window when they raised the prices. Yes learn all about the history of the tenements and how it all started. We loved it, it was our second visit and the impact it made on the kids and myself is a great experience. I think its a eye opener when your actually sitting in the space where it all happened. This is something you can read about but going through the process makes it real and has the impact on you and your kids. http://www.tenement.org/tours.php

SHOP LIFE

Made possible by The David Berg Foundation

Family-run stores filled the lower level of 97 Orchard for over a century, where they struggled to adapt to an ever-changing neighborhood and achieve the American Dream. Visit the 1870s German saloon of John and Caroline Schneider, and use interactive media to trace the stories of turn-of-the-century kosher butchers, a 1930s auctioneer, and 1970s undergarment discounters.
