Not always with the flow

When I initially read this two quotes from World of Warcraft came to mind that the Jinyu say, “Go where the river wills,” but later they go on to say, “Don’t be afraid to swim against the current”. This post had really great ideas and a good message, however – I don’t think, “Going with the flow,” is bad either. Many of us already know that life simply cannot be THAT easy, as much as we’d like it to be.

And often times when it IS that easy, it isn’t worthwhile. More often than not though I have heard from other Spiritual individuals, teachers, wisemen and so forth that if you want very -little- drama in your life or otherwise, go with the flow. If you try to swim against these things it may make things more difficult. That being said, sometimes as hard as we try to do just this, there will BE drama regardless.

Be sure to keep these things in mind when you are reading this article. 🙂

Sometimes everything is easy and falls neatly into place. When that happens, it can be tempting to see it as proof that we are blessed, and moving in the direction some higher, hopefully benevolent force approves of. Perhaps we feel in tune with the universe, or that reality is bending over backwards to accommodate us. Either way, it can be intoxicating.

Nature is populated by things that create tides, and things that go along with them. The moon makes the sea tides, opening up coastal feeding opportunities, and then the predators come to feed on that which feeds and they are all part of the same tide. It makes good sense to use something heading your way, to go with a flow that suits your purpose.

Why I Love Everything Peppermint

Why do I love the herb Peppermint? Well there’s a number of reasons why I love this herb as much as I do, the only thing that annoys me is our blatant marketing of Peppermint flavored this, that or the other during the holiday season (specifically Christmas time) ONLY it seems. But this special Herb is good ALL year round and is quite helpful for several things health wise.

To me this Herb tastes wonderful, smells good and is crisp and refreshing. It’s my preferred mint of the other two I know of and are more commonly used in other mint related treats we keep all year around (some of which don’t actually contain real mint flavoring *gasp!*).

So what are some of the AWESOME things Peppermint oil or the plant itself can do for us? Here is a simple list: More

The Power of Words

Words....

One thing, in all my years praying to my Higher Power something I did not realize until someone mentioned it to me was that, sometimes the way we word things to Spirit is VERY important. We DON’T always know what we NEED but we always do typically know what we WANT. That doesn’t mean THAT is truly what we NEED and Universe knows what’s best for us. Universe doesn’t care if you say, “Universe I need this! I want that!” Instead, Universe more or less says, “We all have wants and needs, what makes you so special.” Now I know THAT comes off sounding a bit harsh or mean but the true hidden message is there. The point is we don’t always know HOW to ask Universe the RIGHT way of obtaining Goals we have in life or for anything much less for that matter. More
