Perhaps that is why you enjoy reading my thoughts on things like this, because I’m honest. I say it the way it is. I’m not afraid to call out the shit in the Bible that I find confusing, yet still love God and believe in Jesus (and say shit without feeling bad).
here is not a moment where I am not feeling pain somewhere throughout my body. I literally have the body of an 80-year-old lady, and it’s just getting worse because there is no cure to the disease that is deteriorating my cartilage and joints. For years, I’ve mastered physical therapy techniques, gotten acupuncture, and pursued natural alternatives because living on prescriptions is not a permanent option that I will take. Another form of natural therapy I do often is Red Light Therapy. It is one of many things that help me control my chronic illnesses.
Since ancient times, many civilizations marked both the March and September Equinoxes as special, potent and even holy. Some cultures erected monuments, some people made pilgrimages, and others gathered to feast, celebrate, and perform rituals that helped them align with the energies of the new season.
Since I began my spiritual journey as a Christian Alchemist, I have been honoring this day with God, creating and adopting rituals that I do with my family.
If you have dark circles—like really dark circles—you know the poignant disappointment that comes from an eye cream’s failed attempt at lightening, brightening, and disguising those damned bluish half-moons. It’s something that all the concealer in the world couldn’t fix (at least not in the long-term anyway). Gleaning outside advice doesn’t always help, either. I’ve heard people recommend applying potato slices—even raw milk—to the under-eye area. While those things may have worked for them, I don’t have the time nor the patience for that kind of skincare commitment. I require something much more portable and much less perishable.
I have been an influencer in various niches for over a decade. From professional photography to e-commerce branding to high risk products. My categories were ALL OVER the place for not just myself but for my various clients. I’m have Italian Generals as clients, contractors from the US Government, China e-commerce brands to school districts. I learned how to wear the hat that my client needed me to wear, but I couldn’t just wear it. I had to OWN it like a Vogue runway model. In deed, I did and here I will share with you my 10 BEST steps I took (that you’ll need to take) if you too want to become an influencer.
As this year’s Autumn Equinox approaches, I have been finding myself drawn to darkness…
No, I’m not talking scary darkness. I’m talking about actual darkness, a dark room, a night sky, etc.
In a recent Instagram reel, I talked about looking forward to my dark autumn mornings, before the sun., and how that helped me find an odd sense of peace and stability.
I didn’t focus too much on that. I figured it was just me, being me, that this was normal and not a big significance. Turns out that simple comment is more profound than I thought.
I have been feeling myself being drawn to the night sky for some time now… I always have. I walk barefoot under new and full moons. I sit on my porch often, taking in nature and listening to the crickets. Since beginning those little “nightly rituals”, I have noticed my life adjust for the better in interesting ways…
Chlorophyll is a pigment that gives plants their green color and plays a critical role in photosynthesis. If your middle school science knowledge is a tad dusty, photosynthesis is the process where plants absorb energy from sunlight to create nutrients.
