Air to fill my lungs,
Fire burns in the heart,
Water washes away any fears,
Earth grounds me to you,
Spirit guides me to you.

Heat and Love

Heart of fire,
Heart of love,
Eyes that gaze,
Body of heat,
Breath is my wind,
Feel my love all
around you through
My eyes, body and soul.

How to Make Your Own Pumpkin Puree & Pumpkin Face Scrub

Pumpkin Face Scrub

  • 2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 Tablespoons Plain, Unsweetened Yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Cream (the solid on top of coconut milk in the can)
  • 1 Tablespoon ground oats or almonds

Mix the ingredients in a Blendtec Twister Jar, or just whisk them up in a bowl. Spread the mixture on your face and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Then, standing above a sink or trash can, gently scrub the mixture in small circles, using the ground oats to exfoliate your skin. My face felt so soft afterwards, and smelled so delicious! :-)

Mother of my birth, for how long were we together
in your love and my adoration of your self?
For the shadow of a moment as I breathed your pain
and you breathed my suffering, as we knew
of shadows in lit rooms that would swallow the light.
Your face beneath the oxygen tent was alive
but your eyes were closed.  Your breathing was hoarse
but your sleep was with death.  I was alone with you
as it was when I was young but only alone now
and now with you.  I was to be alone forever
as I was learning, watching you become alone.
Earth is your mother as you were mine, my earth,
my sustenance, my comfort and my strength
and now without you I turn to your mother
and seek from her that I may meet you again
in rock and stone: whisper to the stone,
I love you; whisper to the rock, I found you;
whisper to earth, Mother, I have found my mother
and I am safe and always have been.

How to lighten brown spots

How to lighten brown spots

You know those brown spots you get that is usually caused by sun damage? Well here is an easy method to lighten them or get rid of them. This method i have been using for 2 weeks and I have already noticed a little bit results. 

Lemon Juice (fresh or bottled) I am using bottled.
Cotton balls

Put lemon juice on a cotton ball and apply to clean face/skin. Let dry and sit on your skin/face for about 15-30 minutes. Then rinse with cool water and apply moisturizer if needed. Do this 2 times a day for about 2 months or until you have the results you wish.
