How To Create A Toxin Free Beauty Regime


To what extent are chemicals in skin care a problem? Most of us use cosmetics and other personal care items without a second thought, believing that none of the chemicals will affect us, however, studies suggest that our skin absorbs close to 60% of the topical products with which it comes into contact. It is claimed that women who are using make-up on a daily basis are absorbing almost 2 kilograms or 5 lb of chemicals per year into their bodies. Some studies suggest we may be wearing about 515 chemicals per day.

Learning To Live A Healthy Lifestyle


Confession: I’m 22 years old, and just recently cooked a meal for myself for the first time. Embarrassing but true. I’ve never had any interest in cooking, and spent four years eating at the dining hall at college. I started graduate school in the fall, and moved into my own apartment. I spent last semester eating frozen food, not working out, and wallowing in stress and anxiety as I adjusted to life on my own and an increased, difficult workload. One day, it just hit me that I wasn’t in college-land anymore: my real life had begun, and the habits I was creating would stick with me for life. Was I really comfortable with the degree to which I was taking care of my body, mind and spirit? I realized that I was not, and made the decision to change. I was going to make my health, both physical and mental, a priority.

Turning Yoga Moves Into Career Moves


“Fulfillment is structured in achievement. Achievement is structured in action. Action is structured in thinking. Thinking is structured in knowledge. Knowledge is structured in consciousness” – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Guru to The Beatles. In the fifty years since The Beatles were presented with ‘The Illustrated Book of Yoga” the practice of yoga has become as prolific in Western society as the band themselves. Once shrouded in oriental mysticism, you’re just as likely to find a yogi in East London as you would in the Far East.

Healing From Stagnant Grief


Grief can take on many forms, and for my wife and me it was the loss of our daughter Rowan Rose. We lost her at 15 weeks to a miscarriage and it was, and is, the most heartbreaking moment of our lives. We never got to see her, hold her and watch her grow up. In fact, getting pregnant wasn't even supposed to happen. It wasn't in the cards for us due to my wife’s childhood cancer. Yet, it did. It was a miracle, a blessing, an arrival of hope we only had in our dreams. Because of the circumstances, we kept the pregnancy quiet and never told anyone. We wanted to make sure everything was going to be all right. And so we waited and planned on week 20 to let our family and friends know about our child. But, we never got the opportunity to do so. I won’t explain the circumstances concerning that fateful day, it isn't necessary. But, what is magical was the evening beforehand.

The Magic Of Manifesting


The first time I heard about manifesting was through this so very wonderful site, in one of Tez’s Talks. From then on I was so incredibly interested and intrigued by the concept. Manifesting is when you purposely create a vision for your future, and begin saying, thinking, or writing the things as if they are already true. It is an extremely powerful method, one which is rather therapeutic and transforming!

Your Virtual Life - Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover


In an age where everything is online and virtual, that phrase to me now seems completely outdated. The competition in my playground used to be who could hold onto the monkey bars the longest and who could swing the highest. This generation’s playground competition is cemented in a virtual world. Who has the most Instagram followers and likes on their photos is the new way of figuring out who is “most liked” at school. So is it really so far fetched to think that the new phrase for the growing generation is “don’t judge a person by their Instagram page?”

Synchronicity And Meaningful Coincidences


Have you ever had an experience where something occurred out of the ordinary? Perhaps you were thinking about someone you hadn't spoken with in several years, and then all of a sudden you received a phone call from that person.

Not knowing how to make it through the hurdle, all of a sudden the answer was delivered to you, plain in sight, right into your lap. Did you ever think about why that long lost acquaintance contacted you? Or why the answer you so desperately needed appeared at the right place and right time? What if there was a Divine plan working behind the realities of life, helping us on our way to fulfilling our purpose?

Taking The Easy Way Out (No, Really)


Often we are told: “no pain, no gain!” from those who are successful or working on being successful. To an extent, this is true. You must experience the darkness to bask in the light. When it comes to mindset, there are a thousand roads to take that lead to ultimate peace and happiness. Every second of every day, a thought scurries through your mind and this pushes you one way or the other: sadness, or happiness. You have the complete power to have a say in what you think.
