MOM's Spring Clean YOURSELF! When you feel good YOU look good!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Happy Spring, bring a little into your home! I made this and you can too, flowers, plastic wrap, lemon and of course a glass vase. Time to make 20 minutes tops.
Deflate gate is a teachable moments. I love Tom Brady and The Super Bowl, dressing in Patriots colors and having fun. That will not be taken away because of "de-flategate". Children need to know that no organization is 100% pure, for instance. According to the New York Post, the other Super Bowl team, the Seahawks, leads the league in performance-enhancing drug suspensions. And it’s important to emphasize that people (or teams) shouldn't’t be defined by their worst actions. The Barry Bonds Family Foundation helps fund outreach programs for African-American youth in San Francisco. If they cheated, they must be held accountable, like Lance Armstrong and Alex Rodriguez, the highest paid player in the history of baseball, came clean about his use of steroids in the last decade as part of an immunity deal with the Drug Enforcement Association. The truth will come out.
I always say think about the consequences of how you will eventually be viewed because of your actions today. Just because people accuse does not make it true. According to http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/deflategate-patriots-tom-brady-colts/ Pro-Football-Reference’s expected points metric, which tracks how many net points are added by each play after accounting for down, distance and field position, Tom Brady and the Patriots’ passing offense added 14.1 points to the team’s margin. By contrast, Andrew Luck and the Colts contributed -10.5 expected points through the air, so the difference among the two teams’ passing production was worth about 24.6 points of scoring margin to the Patriots — still about two touchdowns shy of the Colts’ entire scoreboard deficit. The proof is in the record.
I would like to offer some parenting advice and talking points concerning this "deflate gate, I think it can open great conversation
1. Talk about our moral value
2. Talk about why people cheat inadequacy or they worry about underperforming
3. Talk about consequences, reparably damage their relationships with their peers.
4. Talk about accusations overpower your love for The New England Patriots or any sport and what it means to be a fan and just enjoy.
5. Talk about how to cope with the disappointment of loosing or finding out that somebody cheated and how to handle it.
My meeting Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller and Parenting Abby Lee Miller, star of Dance Mom's is the ultimate tiger mom with heart and insight on how to employ tough-love to inspire children to achieve success. “If you want to help your kid reach the top, you can find no better coach than Abby Lee Miller. Some may criticize her methods, but no one argues with her results. Her kids excel, (at what price) her teams win and her alumni go on to Broadway careers,” reads the publisher’s description about her new book.
I was curious to meet Abby Lee too. After hearing the good the bad and the ugly about Abby Lee from my daughter and her friends. I wanted to meet AbbyLee in person, to see what she was really like. We purchased tickets $75.00 each, which includes meet and greet, T-Shirt, introduction and photo. The pictures tell the story, but I will tell you my personnel read on Abby LeeMiller. She looked fabulous, slimmed down, weight loss was well over 50 lbs. She was tanned and very friendly and a beautiful smile. We chatted a bit about parenting and kids. I liked her style, very direct, truthful and upfront. My daughter had her picture with Maddie Ziegler and Mackenzie Ziegler the girls, "put her feet together" she instructed . I think she has the knowledge, experience and the drive to push her "BRAND" to a new frontier.
HOWEVER as a mother I do have a problem with depersonalization of girls being depicted or treated as sexual objects. I was gobslapped watching the video of Maddie Ziegler in a cage. I know Abby Lee did not choreograph but still, uncomfortable to watch.
I am all for the arts and creativity, but I do not like inappropriate imageries imposed on girls through marketing or products directed at them that encourages them to act in adult sexual ways. Why, after the video "Elastic Heart" starring Shia LaBeouf and Maddie Ziegler, choreographed by Ryan Heffington. As a mother I am mad! After the video was made & launched then everyone saw the light and realized is was wrong? They knew exactly what they were doing when making this video. The girls I know who love Dance Moms said this video was "uncomfortable to watch, and who is the old guy?" The public has spoken, the kids like the dances and AbbyLee yelling at the mothers, the girls who watch do not want to see the sexualization of " Dance Moms" girls.

Healing Begin! Protesting must STOP,No More ‘Die-Ins’ at Grand Central, Mom speaks up for NYPD and Law Enforcement
All lives are valued, I hear what the protesters are saying, I feel the pain, I understand, BUT the disruption must stop and the healing must begin. “Die-ins” (when protesters lie down and block traffic) will no longer be permitted at Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal, Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said Tuesday, after a month of nightly protests at the station.
I found myself smack in the middle of a protest, at Grand Central Station. I asked one protester to stop I said "please use your time and energy to be more constructive, educate and help communities instead of causing disruption." Well, thank GOD all law enforcement was present. They were amazing, and saved me from the anger coming from the mob. The lack of support by Mayor de Blasio toward NYPD is unconscionable. These men and women put their lives on the line everyday, and I just could not stand back any longer watching and walk through a protest without standing up for NYPD and all law enforcement and the chaos these protesters cause.
The healing must begin now, the lack of leadership by our mayor is hard to ignore. But as a citizen these are some suggestions from this MOM:
1.Show respect for authority, it starts in the home and at schools
2.Obey the law, if stopped by police be calm. You will have your turn to speak in court
3.Volunteer in your community, make a difference take responsibility for your action, do not be a blamer
4.Have hope, do not give up stay positive, you can make a difference
5.Monitor your balance
Make Your New Year’s Resolutions With Self-Love for 2015!!
It often seems that with the new year come New Year’s Resolutions. They’re usually some variation of “work harder,” “try harder,” “do more” and “deprive yourself.”
I thought I’d share an excerpt from Kahlil Gibran’s beautiful and wise words about work from The Prophet.
. . . . Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man's hunger.
And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distills a poison in the wine.
Parenting Expert Worries for Jolie & Pitt's Gender-Bender Daughter
Monday, 29 Dec 2014 03:43 PM
"This child needs guidance. Maybe she sees her parents playing different roles and is dressed up and she's playing at a role, but as far as changing her name to John, it's ridiculous," Corso said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Parents need to guide and protect their children, and Brad and Angelina should not be considered trailblazing for parenthood at all. They live in the happy forest of Hollywood, let's say."
The superstar couple supports their blonde, blue-eyed daughter Shiloh's desire to be called John and wear masculine outfits.
Shiloh recently raised eyebrows as she attended the premiere of her mother's holiday blockbuster, the PG-13 movie "Unbroken," attired in a suit and sporting a boyish haircut.
Corso said that could be harmful.
"I’m all for diversity, but Angelina is running her crew like she's running a movie set. Okay, we need someone transgender, can we pull someone in?" Corso told host Steve Malzberg.
"It's very dangerous what she's doing. I really, truly, as a mom and a parenting expert, my heart goes out to this little girl."
Corso said Jolie's own gender history might play a part.
"Sometimes you have to look back at the parent's relationship with their own mother and father — and I know that Angelina in the news has been bisexual," she said.
"She has been seen French-kissing her brother on the red carpet. I mean, you're not dealing with the traditional mother like myself, so this does cause social and gender confusion."
Yet Shiloh's role-playing may be completely innocent, Corso says.
"She does have two brothers, and maybe she just wants to be one of the guys and maybe she sees the privileges that they're getting and she just might be one of the guys," Corso said.
"But again, I have to stress that this child needs to explore her own identity . . . in a private way."
In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Jolie said of Shiloh's tomboy style: “She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. So, it’s a suit with a tie and a jacket and slacks, or a tracksuit. She likes to dress like a boy.
"She wants to be a boy, so, we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
In a 2010 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Pitt explained: "She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So, it's a Peter Pan thing. So, we've got to call her John. 'Shi, do you want . . .' — 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, 'No!' "
Jolie, who has been married three times, is well known for her own gender bending on and off the screen.
She played a bisexual fashion model in the 1998 HBO movie "Gia." She was once hot and heavy with model Jenny Shimizu, saying in a 1997 interview with Girlfriends magazine: "I fell in love with her the first second I saw her."

Jolie, Pitt Allow Daughter to Dress Like a Boy, Call Her 'John'
Mom's, listen up, the best thing I ever did was give my kid a debit card! Your child will learn more from this then you can even imagine. Some kids just see us pull out our credit cards and wala instant merchandise. I wanted to show the process, as a entrepreneur I encouraged my daughter to "take the challenge" and start a "FUN" business over the summer. I took it a step further and gave her a debit card to buy whatever she wanted as long as she was accountable for the money in the account. The debit card was in my name, her possession, kept tight in in her little cupcake wallet in her bag.
