Ramblings about life . . .
What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.
Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.
It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.
Be the dream.
We honour the light and the life within you.
Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

An oopsie that turned out rather beneficial
Yesterday I decided to make a new batch of moisturiser in readiness for our trip to Oz.
My hand slipped as I was putting the Sesame Oil in. It is usually a quarter teaspoon but it simply sloshed in - oops! Then I added the Vitamin E oil, intending to do a few squirts into the already melted oils, but blow me down...being a new bottle from a range I'd never used before I never realised that it didn't have a squirty top...and a huge blob (half the bottle) plopped out!
Universe in action - I wasn't really thinking about the need for protection whilst in Oz - the temperatures out there this time of year can hit the mid 40s (Celsius). I was simply doing it all by rote, having done it countless times over the years. I do change the recipe on the odd occasion, simply because the skin needs a change and sometimes I feel I need more of one oil than another. But when I do, I think about what I am changing.
But not yesterday.
On thinking about it, I realise that there was a reason for more Sesame Oil and Vitamin E:
sunscreen - humungous protection against UV radiation and acting like a sunblock - but allowing that which I need in.
The only problem is that it smells like burnt toast because of the Sesame Oil, so I added Citronella as a precaution against mozzies. It smells better now, but strangely enough the burnt smell disappears a couple of minutes after being applied to the skin.
Actually, I am rather pleased with this new concoction. It is very creamy and smooth.
