It is Libra season of the scales. It sparks me to consider fairness. After living life for some time, I can say that fair is a hard concept to wrap my brain around. In spiritual circles the law "reap what you sow" is offered as a level of fairness. It emcompasses so much that is it hard to see how this plays out with our mind. If you believe in reincarnation, there is a greater experience considered that could perhaps give you faith that somewhere along the way you earned what you currently are receiving, good and bad. That takes quite a sense of responsibility on our part. Easy if a windfall comes, not so easy if crisis appears.
Looking at such a huge concept takes a bit of reflection. I can assume there is balance for nature, the planets, the skies, the earth all seem to be in rhythm together with a purpose. So on a large scale there is this level of balance which I could call fairness. Fairness is a judgement and I don't think the greater levels have judgement on what occurs. It is a balance that plays out in the larger picture. If that is the case, then the microcasm follows the macrocasm. I consider there must be a level of harmony, fairness about us that is maybe to large to see.
If we consider the world unfair, it doesn't sit right with us. Often how things play out, it feels unfair. This is where a level of faith comes in that maybe our small minds can't really see all that happens. Often we want something, it doesn't happen, we think things are unfair and then a series of events occurs that bring us a greater answer. We all have had this experience of wisdom. We can agree that what we "think" is fair, right or desired, is not always so. For us to know this fairness, we often have to remember hindsight is 20/20 and trust that all will work out in balance. We do sense this on some level.
Our world has rules of fairness that don't seem to be followed. We are taught to be kind, nice, share, a plethora of things as children then go out in the world and not many are doing this. We have all kinds of consciousness on the planet at once, following different rules. We can argue about what is right and wrong, do things to change them into what we think is fair. Later when we see how all plays out, we may find out that Idea was wrong and fairness did win. It is a vague subject.
What some think are fair, others do not. Groups, cultures, societies all have different rules on this. Just because a group decides on something they consider fair doesn't necessarily mean it is. In history our ideas of fairness have shifted over time and some days it seems like nothing is fair. We see arguments all the time in the news on what is fair and rarely does it follow what I consider fair. It is a mishmash to say the least. A connection to your inward nature seems the only way to really honor this fair in a way that works. You certainly don't see it played out in this world in a way that makes sense. Yet if all is in a larger harmony, there must be a sense in our individual lives somehow.
I am not sure I will ever understand the great fairness that exists with my small mind, seeing what occurs and trying to read the cause/effect. I am thankful for my belief in reincarnation for it gives me better ground to have power. Rather than think I am a victim, I can just know that a balance is occurring and I can't see the larger picture just yet. It doesn't feel any better yet it does get me out of victimhood and whining when I don't get my way. For a moment I may complain, but inside I just keep going in a direction and try not to get caught up in this fairness I don't see.
Our circumstances, beliefs, experiences all are put into this belief of what is fair. I have a humanitarian view of things that considers the whole. This is my barometer. Highest good of all concerned. We all need different things to strive in life. Some need money to support them, others need love, still others need help with their children. Fair to me feels like all get what they need. I choose how I support others by what they need not what I think they need. We are all different and have different values so fairness of all seems impossible with this reality. Too much help also creates a dependence. Not enough makes for separation. Truly a maze.
Currently, I am in a bit of disagreement with a group on what is fair. They are all in agreement of their idea. I see things differently and as the circumstances play out, it seems to my blessing. However, they consider it immoral for me to take on the blessing and see it as taking from them. I am not sure how to play this out. I do have different views than others about the larger picture. I do believe seeing the parts of the group needs. The group should consider the larger picture of the members in choosing fairness. Equal money is not always fair and yet that is our system. How things miraculously turn out is also an indication of this great balance.
I don't think others are weak if they need support either. We are on a collaborative planet where all different versions of life sync together. We help as an opportunity to give which feels good. If no one needed anything, we wouldn't have to give. We all have been helped when we needed and supported others as they needed. That doesn't make us weak or less, it makes us human and supportive of each other as we go through cycles of life. There is always one high on things while others are low. This demonstrates this law of balance so we support each other through this cycle.
Who knows what is really correct. Maybe it is just our own level of fairness that we should concern ourselves with. Outrage is everywhere on fairness. We simply don't agree. Going inward, really sensing your heart and what you can offer and be open to receive. I don't think I will ever understand or know for sure. With so many variables, levels of consciousness, levels of survival, how could fairness of the mind make sense. It can't possible weigh in the variables of all that is involved.
I trust that there is a higher level of fair that I can not see. I operate to trust in this and hope to see it play out as I understand. I am sure it will sometimes and it won't others. I try not to judge it and consider the greater whole is operating. I do wish that someday, resources will be shared in a kinder way. It is hard to see people trying to eat when others have so much. Obviously, reap what you sow brings us many things but as humans we can see the imbalance and share what we have lots of with those who don't. Maybe it isn't so fair but it seems human and kind. How can we take our equal share, be ok in our hearts when we know what is not so much to us is a huge bit to another. Lots to consider on many levels!
Very interesting and endless contemplation!
We naturally get the urge in the fall and spring to purge! Reorder our lives, our homes, our spaces and our body. It is nature's cycle to let go of what no longer serves. We renew ourselves, reflect at what we are, have, want and shift it through letting go. This is the beauty of the cycle and growth. I love watching the leaves and listening to the message to let things, stories, situations, people, habits, all levels, drop off like leaves in grace and ease.
I have cleared my moms house, helped a friend clear her storage unit, reordered my magic closets. I dropped things on my website, reordered my emotional eating while my mom was sick, giving up old stories of life and am participating in a juice/soup fast this weekend. It is part of the season. I invite you to engage consciously with this energy of transformation we are seeing with the fall beauty.
In my book, I have a chapter "Release and Rejuvenate" all about cleansing, Resting our digestion for a moment. I have engaged in many ways of doing this from a day of fasting to 21 day cleanse programs. All have been so helpful for my health. These things have been health for thousands of years. Many religions "give up" something prior to holy days as an effort to renew their physical body so spirit can better inhabit. It is often not what we put in as much as what we don't let go!
I am doing a 3 day juice cleanse supplemented with soup, bone broth or miso for this weekend through Monday. I didn't want a big to do with all this year has brought me, I am tired. I decided to do a rejuvenation and nourishing for my system as I reorder back to life. It feels good, my body was asking for some quick easy nourishment and juicing takes no digestion. It allows the nutrients to rush right into our blood stream and nourish immediately. I eat plenty of fiber but if you need that, you can do smoothies instead of just juice. That takes in the cleaning fiber. You will engage more digestive action to make it into energy.
I am also supplementing with Ashwagandha tincture, an adaptogene that will support where it needs too. I do take other tinctures daily like milk thistle to support my liver, hawthorn berry for my heart, sometimes sunflower. I am an Elixir Queen. I use homeopathy and flower essences as well. Elixirs are my fun and preventive health blessings.
I invite you to regenerate your body, your digestive system this fall as you clean and clear. The sacred space of your body deva is the first and foremost environment we live in. There are many ways out there and folks whom sell these programs, Find one that calls you and check it out. At the end, you will feel lighter, healthier, more energized and your body will be thankful for the self care!

I am grateful for the teachers Iearned feminine health from. I have followed the woman's health movement my whole life and I hadn't learned what I did from the Himalayan Masters. Still, today, the basics I have learned are not really being taught. There are many ways to learn things but the basic components must be there. I like the fun, practical, result oriented, perspective I learned to understand my body as a woman, different than a man. We are so mis-trained about it. We get no real guidance most of our life. Atleast now, science is studying woman! For years, they gave us solutions based on studying men's bodies! Seems ludicrous.
We do not have the same body, our organs are different! Our whole mid section of our body is just a beginning. It seems clear to me that all the fitness, health, losing weight issues would have a different solution for a woman. We have huge hormone components, we carry life for goodness sake. A different body. So we have to address ourselves differently.
We ride our emotional nature in a way different than mental men. This is not a hindrance! It is a gift of being a woman. Rarely, do I see anything about really getting a handle on our emotional nature. Yet, we have the biggest disruption in life as we pretend it doesn't exist or manage it improperly. We stuff it down when it is our intuitive gift from being life bearers. The law of attraction kind of gives a sense of the power of vibration, which is emotion, or energy. This is the biggest key difference and issue to address if you want health as a woman. To learn what, why and how to work with our emotions. They have purpose. We are designed this way very precisely. Our hormones so tied to our emotions and endocrine system.
Empathy, feeling others, a natural gift of woman, is another innate skill to understand about our body. If we don't know our own feelings, their purpose and how to use them, how do we navigate that we feel others? it gets to be a big mish mash of emotions which is energy whipping around. As woman, these two pieces of ourselves make us different from men and we know very little about either. We have been told we are unstable, confused, too emotional, lead with your head continually yet we don't operate that way in health. Men can feel others too yet for woman it is innate, a powerful species survival mechanism. We use it to raise babies and sense their needs.
We have very little understanding of our cycle which really effects our emotions. We are flowing every 28 days as the moon moves the tides. That is quite a cycle to be tied into. The flowing water of the earth. We act like we don't have our period by trying to do things that take way too much energy as our body is in release. How crazy is that? We act like nothing is happening yet this is the main system that runs our whole body! How can we think we can have health with no understanding or education on any of this?
Our ideas of movement, exercise is based on building a masculine body. Do you know men have more muscles than we do and have a different purpose than us? Traditionally, we had the babies, tended life and they got us food. They have a more stealth form as we have a child bearing form that moves more slowiy and purposely so. We burn out our bodies using this adrenal stress lifestyle that hinders our health in the long haul. We are just designed differently.
Communication is another way we are very different. We have a bigger emotional brain than men. We chat, have many stories, trains of thought going on at once while men compartmentalize, like boxes of information. They put the work box away and then get out the family box. Meanwhile, woman have "tons of windows open" at once, going from one to the other and back again effortlessly. Men get lost. Our brains have differences! We are not just mad woman!
Community has a completely different reference between men and woman. It is very powerful for woman's health to have friendships and be in community, . Men, not as much and for different purpose, to play and compete . We call the men into gather, engage, be part of the social clan. It is one of our purposes and of our beauty and whimsical way that they like.
So how could we use the same health tips for men and woman? Yes, moving is important to us all and good food will build the body. There are commonalities, of course as we all must eat! However I think Having breasts and a womb, carrying life in our body, has a huge impact on our health and differences. Science is just starting to support us during this health crisis. It is simply because we have been following rules for men's bodies, not our own.
It took me some time to really catch all this 8 years ago with all our training on health and beauty. But it was so obvious. Once I heard it I thought, how did I not learn this before? We just didn't. Our lines of health and well being have been dropped out of traditions. They are coming back.
The most important thing I learned in all of this is that woman get health from doing things with ease and grace. Things they like and are easy. We just have kicked them out of life for we are in competition, taskmaster and linear thinking. We have not cultivated our emotional flowing that comes easy. We just were never taught. We find solutions to the same things just differently. Once I learned that if my body felt good, it was healthful for a woman, I was so excited. It is not about being hard, push, no pain no gain, that is men's health. Woman are very different.
I invite you to check out my site, my videos, many of my blogs share this feminine way. It is not better, it is for woman and is just different than men's ways. We feel better in our bodies when we work with them. They are very productive, for what woman do you know that is not doing a zillion things? But we can use our body rightly, the way it was designed by knowing our gifts and skills that are uniquely ours. Reveling, using them and creating a flowing life because we actually work with our body, emotions, cycle, communication, community ways. it is really quite simple.
It transformed me and I wrote a book shortly after! I have been sharing ever since! And expanding my wisdom! I feel like a magical woman because I am!

As I grow in understanding my femininity, I realize I am many woman all rolled up into one. I started to get an understanding of this when I received the Goddess Oracle from my daughter. I asked her to get me one so we could learn of the best woman role models. It wanted atleast 52 traits that we could cultivate as woman. I didn't know that many. As I have played with, shared and learned from them I got an epiphany, that the Goddess map was a guidance system to my emotional nature!
I realized I was all of them at one time or another. Some are so loving they could melt you, others are so loving they would wildly protect you from harm. I considered that these are our emotional states as woman. What a powerful way to teach them! Through Beautiful Goddesses! The ultimate femininity with the crowns, jewelry, luscious outfits and beauty. I loved being them or that part of them that is me. I learned that they symbolize parts of me, traits, emotional power and these guide me through the world. This great emotional nature, symbolized by beautiful woman was how I could understand the purpose of my emotions and how better feel the world. It was a magical day and still is. This is delightful ancient wisdom I play with!
This lead into a noticing, an investigation of my emotional nature. There is Segmet, the Goddess of Anger for when she shows up my boundaries are being crossed or someone is taking advantage of me. . There is Kali, the scariest me that I am, shows up when I, or one I love, is in danger. The mom who finds strength to pick up the car her child is under. There is Kuan Yin whom I become when I am compassionate to myself and others. There is Sophia, the Goddess of wisdom who shows up when I have experience and brilliance to share. There is Lilith, she is power. She supports me to be who I am, with all my mess and be bold, love myself no matter what.
There is Nut, who remembers life is a mystery and we will never know all the answers. There is Oshun, of sensuality, reminding me that pleasure, beauty and being in my senses feels good and is who I am. There is Morgan Le Faye who reminds me to be rhythmic, life is cyclical and my way as a woman has it's slower cadence and dance. There is Blodellwedd, of betrayal who shows up if I am being betrayed or am betraying myself. Eurynome of Ecstasy draws me into the highest raptures of life. I could go on and on of these Goddesses we are!
And there is so many, endless lists of Goddesses. I have yet to discover some with in me still. I loved this realization for it allowed me to be all the characters and roles I am. They change, are added to, some deleted and outgrown, but many woman are within me as the many emotions I ride. It is fun. It is interesting, It is femininity. The first master I met told me "Woman are like the wind of dynamic change and men are the trees they swirl around". This is our nature and it is good. We even surprise ourselves often.
I inspire you t embrace the many characters you are. All woman are these beauties. We flow from one woman to the next, the girl, the woman, the mom, the wife, the leader, the teacher, the lover, the fighter. Draw on the lovely ladies that you are more often. Allow them to protect you and remind you when to act in safety. Be the Queen of your Dominion with this harem of woman you are. Use your emotional nature as the guidance system it is. These role models of Goddesses support you always. Learn to ride in them, enjoy them, use them but don't be run by any particular one. For we are dynamic change. We love to play so many parts and experience so many rich, deep beautiful states of feeling. It is our nature. We are the Living Goddesses .
What a fun perspective shift!! Oolala!

Oxytocin is something you want to understand for vital health! It is the hormone of pleasure and relaxation. When ever this hormone is present, you parasympathetic nervous system of healing is building and resetting your body. We want to work with our body, understand it, know when it is overloaded and support to reset it. This is the system that allows our body to do the renewal, clean out, build itself, release, rejuvenate our organs, all this happens when we are in this parasympathetic, nervous system.
We want our bodies to be circling this hormone more often. We can tell when we are in this state by our relaxation. Our tend and befriend attitude. Collect and protect speaks of having necessary boundaries, these allow us to feel safe and loving. Our body will calm down, feel alert but not in hyperspeed of adrenaline. We have two choices with our nervous system, fight or flight energy or tend and befriend. We can actually create this to be balanced with awareness. Our body wants to be in tend and befriend most of the time for stress is fight or flight. We all know stress kills. One way to consciously support ourselves is to learn ways to get our bodies into oxytocin.
My whole series of videos, my blog writing, my gift of sharing is all about going from Adrenal stress to flow. It is my mission to give you practical ways to do this for yourself. It is the main key of health, beauty and happier states in life. It is that simple. I learned of this, played with the practices that I share on my videos and "Walla!" My whole energy of life changed. Better yet, that as I did the practices and retrained my body, it started to be out of adrenal stress on it's own. For this its job. To be in both nervous systems as needed. We do not need to be in fight or flight all day. It is killing us.
My videos share simple, practical little tricks, ways to perceive and perform our everyday tasks in a more nourishing way. It doesn't take much time. It asks for more presence in how we are doing it. It can easily be added into our life! The practices or actions are things we like. Things of woman. Things that are natural for us to do. If they don't feel that way it is only because we have some other training, beliefs that go against our natural rhythm. It doesn't mean the beliefs are right, it means we need to address the outdated thinking and start to work with our body, our feminine body rightly. If it is grace and ease, it is healthful for woman! That's it in a nutshell.
I encourage to watch some of my 10 minutes to health, The Art of Sparkle. I watched them all last night in an effort to update things and although created years ago they are very clear and offer you the wisdom consciously! The logic of why, the call for heart centered emotion and physical practices. They are what I use everyday to be creating this oxytocin state as much as I can. It is health, beauty, magnetism, attraction, fulfillment! This is the oxytocin state.
And although 10 minutes may seem soooo long these days, you will clearly understand the practicalness I am offering you to health. Magical truly, for you are using your energy system, your nervous system, your emotional nature rightly. Then you can begin to master your energy field, what you are presenting to the world and doing only those things that nourish it when you can. Health and beauty are not complicated. They are simple steps of self honor, understanding of your sacred body, its systems and a base level logic of how they work. Then you just work it in ease.
We have not been taught so we are now making changes. Body connect, pleasure of taste, movement, beauty, resetting our system easily and quickly throughout the day is all it takes. In grace and ease. Allow yourself the time to listen to these easy ways of reclaiming more health that require simple awareness of yourself.
A magical world awaits you! Riding in oxytocin brings more pleasure and joy to your life!,

We all say we want to receive yet many are not so good at it. Our world trains us that if we receive, we are weak, we are losers, we are not confident. It is about being self sufficient and yet no one is truly independent from the world. We need to update our ideas especially in light of a collaborative, Aquarian Age. We are supported continually and we miss so many things because of our view on receiving.
I have had a power learning in this receiving and I have found a whole well of support that I was missing. I am thankful for this support and it doesn't make me weak. It makes me stronger for knowing that I give and do get to receive as well, with no payback that must happen. I give not expecting so I can receive without that same expectation for all we get was earned at some point. That is a bit different than our world would have us think but it is law, you reap what you sow.
This law happens for good or bad as we would judge it. We seem more open to it when the bad comes and don't open when the good comes but it works both ways. To allow others to do for us gives them power as we know for most of us are givers, it makes us feel good. That good feeling, that sense of I can help should also be allowed for others as they give to us. We need to really shift our consideration about receiving or who do we give too? If all just gave and no one received, there would be no exchange and the energy circle disappears! We don't give to others because we think they are weak. We give to others because we can. We may have resources or wisdom that they need and it is true with everyone. We all are learning different things, have different grasps on life and we can be teacher and student all at the same time.
I invite you to review how you look at receiving from others. God works through others and when we pray or ask for support it often comes magically from another. That is spirit working. Whether a tree, a road sign, a book, a bird or another human being. We don't want to miss our fulfillment because we have the wrong mindset. It is often why we don't receive. We are missing the signs and we are missing how it comes by expecting it in a limited way. It is a grave mistake when working with the light of our world. It happens so unexpectedly. We all know this and why we have words like coincidence, synchronicity and synergy. It is this way that our wishes are fulfilled.
Open to receive by simply saying that. I am open to receive of the blessings and path. In being open, we allow all the world around us to lead us. Much greater a resource than our mind. Yes have a prize, a direction you are going but allow the magic of alternative routes to take you! Let it be a mystery just as if you were driving to a new place. We drive just following the gps. Our world, all our bodies, emotions and mind are our gps, It is all directing us at any given moment. Pay attention. Be open. Look for the path not with eyes closed off but with a wide angle view. Then it becomes magical truly.
Life is happening, meeting you moment by moment. You don't have to get what is yours. It is coming toward you if you loosen the reigns and watch what is going on around you, participate fully in all the world so that you can RECEIVE the blessings that are waiting. Don't discredit them or ignore them. Allow the mystery of newness to inspire and sparkle you. Consider you are worthy of all good things and allow that thinking, feeling, movement to pervade you. It takes work to overcome our training but bit by bit we walk into the magical world of manifestation that is co-creating. We do that by learning to receive, listen and be accepting to the bigger way of things.
It is just how it works!
