A good exfoliating body scrub is a key component in effective skin care. Try this skin-loving honey and almond oil blend with jojoba meal for a gentler “microderm” scrub, or for those days when your skin just needs a quick pick-me-up. […]
Can you feel the Full Moon Energy?
The energies have been strong the past couple of days and especially with the 11:11 portal yesterday. I have had mystical and emotional dreams and at the same time felt deep grounding.
The Full Moon today helps us complete an emotional cycle related to Taurus which is the first earth sign. It is ruled by Venus and is our physical and tangible life which is grounded into earth and our senses. It is about physical pleasures and assets.
The opposite of Taurus is Scorpio which leaves the physical world and dives deep into the inner realms of our emotions, deep and mystical dimensions and karmic wounds. Sun is in Scorpio and reminding us to merge and unite our physical experience with the deeper and spiritual experience.
Mercury is retrograde and traveling very close to the Sun right now, which also highlights our thought patterns. The asteroid Vesta is conjunct the Moon and brings in energy of devotion and clarity. We are asked to also create a stable and patient relationship with our body and with Mother Earth.
These are the areas which affects your Sun/Ascendant at this Lunation:
Aries: physical and material matters as well as the body
Taurus: the Self
Gemini: Spiritual and hidden areas
Cancer: Friends, groups and organisations
Leo: Career and status
Virgo: Higher learning and long distance travel
Libra: Hidden areas and secrets/ loans and the psyche
Scorpio: relationships and partnerships
Sagittarius: Health and daily work/routine
Capricorn: Children and love
Aquarius: home and family
Happy Full Moon!
Na paro paraṃ nikubbetha
nātimaññetha katthaci na kañci,
Let no one deceive another
or despise anyone anywhere,
or through anger or irritation
wish for another to suffer.
Sutta Nipāta 1.14
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
Welina mai e nā hoa ē a hau’ōli alōha Po’akolu! Ō kā maluhia no me oe.
Warmest greetings to you, Friends, and a happy aloha Wednesday! Peace be with you.
“Loneliness is a bridge between feeling left out in the world and being one with all that is. When loneliness arises, it invites you to slow down and deeply experience exactly how it feels, without an interest in imagining what is missing from your life. While it may first seem like the heartbreak of personal despair, such feelings equally have the power to reveal an unsuspecting communion with your true eternal nature. It is here where nothing is actually needed for you to be happy, peaceful, and free. This is by far the most threatening realization any personal boundary may encounter, but the most liberating insight you were born to explore.”
“Loneliness isn’t a matter of feeling ignored or unsupported by others. It is noticing how infrequently you love yourself along the way. When loving yourself becomes a primary response to whatever transpires, the pain, despair and isolation of feeling alone blossoms into the grace and solitude of heartfelt relief.”
- Matt Kahn

Good morning to all and a Happy Aloha Saturday! Have a nice weekend, everyone. Peace be with you.
May every breath I breathe,
help relieve the suffering of the many.
May every step I take,
be on the path of truth.
May my eyes see myself
in all living beings.
May my heart do the work
that compassion demands.
May I feel every tear,
every hurt, every need.
May I touch with sacred hands.
May my body be a bridge,
and my spirit healing ointment.
May my words fall like rain
on the desert of need.
May I give without hesitation,
and without expectation.
May I grasp the hand that needs help,
and let go of all else.
May my life be both prayer,
and the much needed answer.
May my identity be both lost
and found in all living beings!
~ a Buddhist Prayer

Paul Stamets, speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, is considered an intellectual and industry leader in fungi habitat, medicinal use, and production. He lectures extensively to deepen your understanding and respect for the organisms that literally exist under every footstep you take on this path of life. His presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet. His central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.

• Robach: “Now it’s All Coming Out … I Freaking Had All Of It…”
(New York, NY) Newly revealed footage leaked by an ABC insider has exposed how network executives rejected allegations against Jeffrey Epstein years ago, even though there was content regarding the merit of those claims in-hand.
Amy Robach, ‘Good Morning America’ Co-Host and Breaking News Anchor at ABC, explains how a witness came forward years ago with information pertaining to Epstein, but Disney-owned ABC News refused to air the material for years. Robach vents her anger in a “hot mic” moment with an off-camera producer, explaining that ABC quashed the story in it’s early stages. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts (Now Virginia Guiffre) [alleged Epstein victim]. We would not put it on the air. Um, first of all, I was told “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein. No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.”
She continues, “The Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.”
Robach goes on to express she believes that Epstein was killed in prison saying, “So do I think he was killed? 100% Yes, I do…He made his whole living blackmailing people… Yup, there were a lot of men in those planes. A lot of men who visited that Island, a lot of powerful men who came into that apartment.”
Robach repeats a prophetic statement purportedly made by Attorney Brad Edwards “…[T]here will come a day when we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known,” and Disgustedly Robach states “I had it all three years ago.”

this is the highest happiness.
