When a family member or friend asks for a massage, it's important to know what you're doing, even if you're not particularly trained in it. Luckily, I am. It's been quite a few years since I started my massage career and it has been rewarding to see the positive changes in people's bodies, minds, and attitudes. It's what has mainly kept me in this field with higher education. Now it's time for more people like you to learn just how I have been so successful in medical massage therapy. Ready?
Okay, first wash your hands for 20 secs. Of course this is elementary, it's also vitally important to keep those lessons well versed.
If this helps, envision the body as a river. The blood flow is like water and there are boulders or rocks blocking it's path and causing pain. What needs to be done is removing those blocks to promote free flow again.
Find concentrated areas of tension in the neck or shoulders and squeeze with your entire hand to a comfortable level and hold til the muscles let go. This should feel like tissue is naturally sliding underneath your finger tips layer by layer.
Things you'll need:
Magnesium oil, Sea Salts, 8 oz. spray bottle and filtered water (optional fav essential oils)
Add 2 tsp of sea salt, 20mL of magnesium oil, and 15 - 20 drops of your favorite eo into your spray container. Fill just below the neck of the container with filtered water. Swirl til salts fully dissolve. Lightly spray in areas that need the most cleansing energy and places for fresh starts adding any necessary affirmation of your choice whether it be through song, vision, or words needed.
If you're reading this post, there's a high likely chance that you were like me once. A scared hopeless romantic that wants to be loved while having the hardest time picking the right lovers and accepting the love we deserve. You'll get there, trust me. You are so capable of loving and being loved by the right person, you'll be looking back years from now snuggling with "that one" and being eternally grateful you found such a person. Here's how I got out of the love funk and vicious cycles and into the relationship of a lifetime.
1. Fix that beautiful head of yours!
Brain chemical balancing, physical balancing, and visions of true love gets the sparks flying for your wishes to come true.
❣ Herbal & Mineral supplements such as Lith Oro has personally helped me.
❣ Cardio & Yoga for even just 5 mins made me feel and look better.
❣ Creating a vision board full of happiness and love motivated me to do more for my love life.
2. Focus on your happiness.
Sometimes we get distracted in our love lives or without one that we start losing ourselves and our dreams. Don't lose hope!
❣Make focusing on your happiness your mantra.
❣Relax your mind & sleep well!
❣Remember, you have multiple people that you are romantically compatible with aka "SoulMates". When you find the right one at the right time, take care of yourself so you can love them & yourself for a lifetime.
3. Take where you're at and improve it.
❣If you can take a room or a piece of your yard or etc. and turn it into an oasis then you can prove to yourself that you can make things better and there is hope when things go bad. Yes, it takes a couple to participate in a relationship but regardless of the ups and downs, you have shown yourself that you can move forward and you can overcome, plus its nice to be surrounded and embrace good energy transference when you're down.
4. Now go and venture out and take these methods out for a test run. If I have learned anything, it's that changing your environments, changes your life, including your love life❣
***Disclaimer*** I do not know everything. I do believe in the power of prayer but I also believe in the power of learning and common knowledge. These tips are what has personally helped me to see most my prayers come true.
In our most troubling times, we sometimes feel this great urge throw up our hands and pray or meditate when we just about had it with life. No matter your background, religion or non religion, our ancestors have prayed to one or many gods throughout our era. During these times of stress, it's important to listen to the spiritual message to overcome and find the grand scheme of things AS WELL AS be as healthy and happy as possible. Prayer can lead us towards patience, action, or adventure if you can listen to and obey the message. Sometimes people can misconstrue the message and bring harm & hardships to people and other living things. The difference between an effective prayer and an ineffective prayer is a clear mindset.
I hope this has clarified prayer for you!

The first time I remember making a wish, I was a toddler asking my mother for a copper coin to toss into the fountain under the hot Louisiana sun. Decades later I am reminded that all I wanted & wished for was to be happy. I think that truly knowing what we want and saying it out loud is the first start to helping it to come true.
So when it came to being happy, I learned individual mental health is so important & having the access and affordability to receive and give it is also of utmost importance. It wasn't until a viable diagnosis & affordable quality treatment was available that it became the beginning to make my wish come true. You are in control of your destiny, your wishes, your commands when your greatest organ, the brain, can fully function to meet them.
You become your very own genie.
Here are 4 ways to achieve the basics for daily mind health.
1) Good Sleep with mineral water.
Here's an affordable way to make your own at home.
What you'll need is 1 liter of water, a pinch of Magnesium Sulfate, & a pinch of sea salt. Add the mix together til fully dissolved.. You can add a squeeze of lemon juice for flavor. Keep this in your fridge and drink before going to bed. Read more about how Magnesium improves brain health at Dr. Jockers.
Here's one great simple way to meditate. You can start the relaxing music above & add your favorite essential oil to your diffuser or room spray. Sit or lie in a comfortable position with your palms up. Focus on relaxing your mind & take deep belly breathes. Taking just 5 mins in your morning or lunch break for example to meditate makes a big difference for productivity & clearing your mind.
3) Do not forget that your body and environment also feeds the heath of your mind. Taking care of your physical health & environment is key to success as well. Taking a stroll in your local park or feng shui'ing your home helps both these things.
4) Ask your doctor about the natural mineral found in natural springs, Lithium Orotate, if you are experiencing stress, anxiety, and depression. This is the same mineral I have taken for years that has helped me find inner peace, calm & clarity. You can read my story here.
