Ways to Pamper Yourself!


With the cold Winter season upon us our bodies and spirits need more attention than ever! Taking care of your self is crucial for you to be able to help others.

You may be limited with your time and money—especially after the holidays. However, just a small investment in YOU will pay-off BIG!

When you take time and self-nurture, you will be more energized and caring for those around you! Instead of short tempered and stressed—take time out for a pampering session and re-new your spirit!

1. Take a bubble bath. With all the yummy scents, find one whose scent relaxes you and softens your skin. After your bath, apply body lotion. Because of using heat so much during the cold months it dries out the skin and it’s important to nourish your skin.

2. Get a new hairstyle and look years younger. Nothing gives you a better feeling than a fresh hairstyle! Make sure the stylist shows you new styling techniques too.

3. Moisturize your skin. You don’t need to spend a lot on a moisturizer. Look for a product that has vitamin E, A and C for the best looking skin ever.

4. Drink more water. Again the heat in your house will dry out your body. It’s important to keep yourself hydrated. Drink some delicious herbal tea with a few cookies. Treat yourself with love.

5. Purchase a pretty blouse in a vivid color that makes you feel special.

6. Wear some soft fuzzy socks and read by the warm fire.

7. Glitz up your basic black dress with a rhinestone belt or chandelier earrings.

8. Buy a nail polish in your favorite color. Give yourself a manicure or pedicure.

9. Treat yourself to new lingerie. Buy a new bra and panty matching set. What about a special warm robe?

Take time to pamper yourself and you will find your spirits uplifted and you will be a blessing to those around you.

Many blessings,

Healing With Joy and Happiness!


We are more powerful than we think. Our thoughts can control each day of our life. It is time to wake up and choose what you want each day of your life. If you want to be happy then start practicing happiness. Avoid negative energies from people, media, and any other forms. Watch comedies. Go outside and observe Mother Nature and the happiness of her creatures.

Joy can be found within when we let go of our expectations about our life. It is enough to just live. When you can find joy from the experience of living you cannot help but reflect this to the world.

Now more than ever we need to heal the world and we can do this through the power of our thoughts and practicing spreading joy and happiness!

A happy heart is like a medicine! Heal The World With Your Personal Medicine!

To Believe

Ah Life! We are given this opportunity called life to find the hidden beauty even in the most difficult times. This is not always easy to do when you are struggling and feeling totally defeated. Remember no matter what your circumstances are there is a heavenly host rooting for you to succeed.

Here is a beautiful song from such a talented little girl Jackie Evancho that I believe will help lift your spirits up today and remind you that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Keep on believing my friend!

The Optimist


There is a story of identical twins. One was a hope-filled optimist. “Everything is coming up roses!” The other was a sad and hopeless pessimist.

He thought that Murphy, as in Murphy’s Law, was an optimist. The worried parents of the boys brought them to the local psychologist.

He suggested to the parents a plan to balance the twins’ personalities.

“On their next birthday, put them in separate rooms to open their gifts. Give the pessimist the best toys you can afford, and give the optimist a box of manure”.

The parents followed these instructions and carefully observed the results.

When they peeked in on the pessimist, they heard him audibly complaining,

“I don’t like the color of this computer…I’ll bet this calculator will break…I don’t like this game…I know someone who’s got a bigger toy car than this…”

Tiptoeing across the corridor, the parents peeked in and saw their little optimist gleefully throwing the manure up in the air. He was giggling.

“You can’t fool me! Where there’s this much manure, there’s gotta be a pony!”

Fibromyalgia Facts and Self Help


by Cherokee Billie ND.

Muscular pain, tingling, burning, and numbness are common symptoms of a repetitive strain injury. However, these symptoms are also common in a condition called Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia basically means pain in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It affects mostly women and up to 4% of the general population.

The pain of Fibromyalgia occurs in areas where the muscles attach to bone or ligaments and is similar to the pain of arthritis. The joints themselves are not affected, however, so they are not deformed nor do they deteriorate as they may in arthritic conditions.

The pain typically originates in one area, usually the neck and shoulders, and then radiates out. Most patients report feeling some pain all the time; and many describe it as “exhausting.” The pain can vary, depending on the time of day, weather changes, physical activity, and the presence of stressful situations; it has been described as stiffness, burning, stabbing, sudden, radiating, and aching. The pain is often more intense after disturbed sleep.

The other major complaint is fatigue, which some patients report as being more debilitating than the pain. Fatigue and sleep disturbances are, in fact, almost universal in patients with Fibromyalgia, due to lack of serotonin in the blood.

Several years ago Fibromyalgia was a disability categorized as “psychological”. It’s hard to understand how it feels to be told you are mentally having a problem when your body will not perform what you are asking it to do. How can that possibly be mental? Patients were, in effect, being told it was “all in your head”. Fortunately, the medical field has produced enough research to re-classify it as a true physical disability that is often paired with studies and treatments for arthritis and rheumatism.

Sioux Indian Story


My grandfather took me to the fish pond on the farm when I was about seven, and he told me to throw a stone into the water. He told me to watch the circles created by the stone. Then he asked me to think of myself as that stone person.

“You may create lots of splashes in your life but the waves that come from those splashes will disturb the peace of all your fellow creatures,” he said.

“Remember that you are responsible for what you put in your circle and that circle will also touch many other circles. You will need to live in a way that allows the good that comes from your circle to send the peace of that goodness to others. The splash that comes from anger or jealousy will send those feelings to other circles. You are responsible for both.”

That was the first time I realized each person creates the inner peace or discord that flows out into the world. We cannot create world peace if we are riddled with inner conflict, hatred, doubt, or anger. We radiate the feelings and thoughts that we hold inside, whether we speak them or not. Whatever is splashing around inside of us is spilling out into the world, creating beauty or discord with all other circles of life.

How to Stop Leg Cramps and Spasms


by Cherokee Billie ND.

A muscle cramp or spasm is a sudden, uncontrolled contraction of a muscle. This type of pain is most commonly experienced in the legs, and therefore often called a leg cramp or a “charley horse.”

The exact cause of a leg cramp is not completely understood, but there are some factors that are thought to contribute to this condition:

• Muscle fatigue
• Heavy exercising
• Dehydration
• High weight (not necessarily obesity)
• Electrolyte imbalances
• Medications (statins, prednisone, others…)

The most common cause that is typically seen in patients who develop leg cramps is exercising in an unusual way, meaning either more activity or a different exercise. Leg cramps are more common in young (adolescent age) and older (over 65) patients. Patients who weigh more are more prone to developing leg cramps. Also, some medications can cause side effects of leg cramping.

‘Charley-horses’ is the first place your body targets when you are dehydrated. Drink lots of water! I recommend purified water and Mineral Water mixed 50/50. The Mineral Water is going to put back into the muscles the minerals they are losing on a daily basis. You must drink beyond your thirst to get the benefits of hydration.
