Energy Healing with the Kabbalah: Integrating Ancient Jewish Mysticism with Modern Energetic Practices

5 of 5 stars

Energy Healing with the Kabbalah (Energy Healing) is divided into three parts;
Energy Healing with the Kabbalah
  • Background - Describes the foundational concepts of kabbalah and the anatomy of energy
  • Practices - Focuses on the maintenance of balance in relationships and in the individual
  • Healing - Hands on positions for healing self and others

If you've ever felt for yourself the healing energies of reiki, you would understand our fascination with this book. These are subtle energies. However, they work. Now, we learn that kabbalah has healing energies? Oh, yes. We have to know more.

Kabbalahistic history is rich and poetic. It's beautiful even. However, we would be remiss if we didn't admonish anyone interested in adding these energies to one's healing repertoire. Ground and protect yourself and try not to deviate from states norms.

The Veil: An Invitation to the Unseen Realm. Blake K. Healy

5 of 5 stars

As a society, we place a tremendous amount of value on those with a clear view through the veil. Some hide their fascination, lest we be ridiculed and name called. Sighing...some critics never grow up.

The VeilWhat Healy sees is something that we all can see, if we desire. In The Veil, he tells us what he sees, how he sees it and how we can foster such vision. As an empath of a few years, we still do not have a clear vision, most of the time. Hence, the fascination.

If this resonates with you, you might want to check this out for yourself. The Veil is an easy and a wildly interesting read. It draws you in for a read. Then, releases you when it's time for a bathroom run.

If there's a best part of The Veil, it's the perspective. We will not ruin that for you. But, it's solid.

Pitch Perfect 3: Review and Quotes

Pitch Perfect 3 comes pretty close to being our favorite of all three. Yes, we understand that we might be alone with our thinking and that is just fine. We will handle.

Granted, the first was the best for humor. But, the passion, the energy, the plot and time lines and the music were unmatched. Unmatched, we state!

We won't spoil anything in the event that you have yet to see it. It was outstanding though. Aca-riffic.

Pitch Perfect 3

Aubrey: Aca-cuse me?

Aubrey: But, quitting wrinkles the soul.

Fat Amy: Emily, I...can't believe that a half decent idea came out of your dumb mouth.

Fat Amy: He's got a tattoo of me on his butt cheek...

Fat Amy: Oh my G_d, Emily! Smart people are talking right now!

Fat Amy: Okay. So let's get tarted up.

Fat Amy: You are a very stupid person.

Lilly: ...Satan has finally left my body.

You're Sleeping on Your Mattress Wrong

Sleep is very important for your body and regardless of how healthy you eat, if you don’t take care of you sleeping schedule you won’t see any improvement. Being healthy is an effort on several fronts so, just like you take care of your physical activity and food, you should also take care of your sleep. And, while there are a lucky few out there that can simply put their head down and fall asleep, over 35% of the American population is chronically tired. This happens because most of us don’t really know what a good night sleep is and we tend to postpone our slumber time until well after midnight.

To make sure we get things right, I talked with sleep experts from try mattress and learned how to fix the mistakes you’re doing right now.

You're Sleeping on Your Mattress Wrong

#1: You follow the Rules

Yes, rules are there for a reason, but when it comes to sleep, you have to toss the rules aside and find out what works for you. For instance, specialists recommend 7 to 8 hours of sleep, but if you still have a hard time waking up and you feel groggy during the day, you should try sleeping more. The same thing happens when you have a sleep tracking device. If the device says you’ve slept enough, it’s not necessarily true for you. Check with your body and see what works – this is the only rule to follow!

#2: You Bought the Wrong Mattress

The mattress is extremely important for your sleep quality because it is the surface that accommodates your body. If the surface creates pressure points (usually happens with hard mattresses) then you’ll wake up with shoulder and/or hip pain which is totally unpleasant. On the other hand, if the surface is too soft, it may OK at first, but it will quickly sag and create body indentations in time.

The most recommended type of mattress is a type of foam (memory foam or latex) or natural fibers in general. These are elastic so they maintain their shape while also accommodating your body.

#3: Your Sleeping Position is Not Okay For You

We all have a favorite sleeping position but it’s not always the best for us. For instance, almost half of the world population sleeps on their side, but there are several variations (sleeping on the right or left side, sleeping in the fetus position, sleeping like a log, and so on). Out of these, the most recommended is sleeping on your left side. This allows organs on the right to take a break during the night and keeps the blood and lymph flowing correctly.

Still, sleeping on the side is not the best position; sleeping on your back is. This position doesn’t put pressure on any internal organs and keeps the spine well-aligned. It’s also great for the circulatory system and for your general well-being while sleeping.

Finally, the worst position is on your stomach. Besides the fact that there will be pressure on all the vital internal organs, you also create a weird misalignment between the neck and the rest of the spine. Even more, women have more difficulty sleeping in this position because of the breasts.

#4: Temperature Control

There are two types of temperature settings we need to discuss: the temperature n the room and the temperature in your mattress. The temperature in the room should be somewhere around 18 - 20°C because we sleep better in a colder environment. The same goes with the mattress – if it sleeps hot (like some memory foams do) you won’t be able to rest during the night.

Sacred Rest: Recover Your Life, Renew Your Energy, Restore Your Sanity

5 of 5 stars

We were attracted to this book, simply considering its title. There are many aspects of our lives which are sacred. Yet, we do not think about it.

Also, who amongst is well rested? Not this beleaguered writer. You?

Sacred Rest is divided into three parts;
  • Why Rest? 
  • The Gifts of Rest 
  • The Promises of Rest

We learn from the, "How to Use This Book," section that Doctor Dalton-Smith intentionally penned this piece to be taken in smaller portions, for those who are busy. She goes into further details as to getting the most of out Sacred Rest. She ends this missive with the encouragement that you pick out what speaks to you.

We like Sacred Rest because it is sometimes funny, seriously deep and easy to consume. Beautiful. Important.

How Does The Savvy Traveler Stay Healthy In India?

If India has been on your bucket list for a while, it’s time to make the most of the January sale to book your ticket for a trip that will broaden your horizon and open up your mind. As a general rule of the thumb, the best time to visit India is from October to March. However, it’s a large country so it can be helpful to define exactly where you want to go before you book your ticket. If you’re planning to climb on the Himalayas, you should avoid December and January when the alpine foothills are the coldest, and June to September when the area is too wet to enjoy. If you want to see Kolkata, the best season is from October to January as it is too hot and wet the rest of the year. Mumbai stays dry and warm until May, which makes it a popular destination. In short, you need to do your research before you book to avoid bad weather. But the weather is only one of the elements to consider. India is a tropical country that has a very different sanitary level from what you’re used to. You need to prepare your plan to stay healthy during your Indian holiday.

What Are The Risks of Indian Travel?

Geographically, India is extremely varied. Consequently, you will encounter a variety of health risks, depending on the area you visit. Hygiene is poor in most regions, which makes water-borne diseases common. In tropical areas, you need to take precautions against insect-borne diseases. Consult recommendations before you leave, as you will have to plan up to 6 weeks for your vaccinations. Additionally, you should never drink water from a tap or consume food that hasn’t been skinned or peeled – as the exposure to dirty water is dangerous. And finally, it’s best to avoid rural areas where insect bites such as ticks and lice are common.

Healthy Mind, Too

Once you’ve ensured your physical health, you can fully embrace the healing power of Indian holiday. Indeed, you will find a lot of meditation spots across the country, and you can even join a meditation center to explore your spiritual place in the world. If this is too much for you, you might prefer the cultural diversity of Kochi, where the Chinese, Jewish, Christian and Indian spiritualities meet. Here, you can relax in the swimming pool of the Courtyard Kochi Airport hotel while you think of the local and peaceful spiritual display in town. India is, after all, the place of mindful yogis.

The Essentials, Everywhere in The World

Don’t let the poor hygiene conditions frighten you. With the right preparation, India is a safe country for visitors, assuming you stick to the recommendations. Ultimately, foreign countries are likely to present a health risk if their environment is not something you’re used to. That’s precisely why you need to do your research before booking to know what medications you’re allowed to carry, what vaccines you need, and what the weather’s like.

In the end, the savvy traveler follows only three rules in India. He gets his vaccines in advance. He doesn’t consume tap water. And, last but not least, he lets his mind explore the magic of the Indian mindfulness.


28 Hotel Rooms (2012): Synopsis and Quotes

A man and a woman, who's first and last names we don't know, meet while on business. They stay together that first nite and 28 nites subsequent to that.

Man is played by Chris Messina and he falls in love with Woman (Marin Ireland), who is in a relationship with another man.

The way the story ends, one would surmise that the sleep-overs continue indefinitely.

This is not a movie for a younger audience.

Man: Did you ever break-dance?

Go back to your husband.

You got any brothers or sisters?

Woman: I can't do this right now.

I can't stay.

I love him. I think.

I'm not leaving him.

It's just a book.

Moments4MeFrance (M4MF) is a fairly new company which is based in France (the name gave that fact away). The company specializes in face and eye masks. Products are 100% vegetarian and not tested on animals.
Moments4MeFrance M4MF runs on positivity with a focus on the end user. Founder Adda de Vaulchier encourages the potential customer to take care of themselves. To be kind. Even the letter, penned by de Vaulchier, which accompanied product was uplifting.


(1) Rejuvenating Face Mask (For All Skin Types)

We applied the mask to a clean face. Then, we smoothed it down and kept it on for twenty minutes. It felt so wonderful as the skin absorbed the Aloe Vera and hyaluronic acid. This left our face very soft, smooth and less wrinkled!

This is a lovely product. However, it is not for sale just yet. The website will tell the tale.
