Remember the Good in 2015

Last year we wrote a blog this time of year about taking the pressure off of making the standard “New Years Resolutions.” We touched on just making little goals for yourselves and making them more attainable. This year we would like to do something similar but more of a twist to it.

 

In 2015 we want everyone to focus on all the GOOD that happens and not focus on any of the bad. 2014 seemed like it hit everyone pretty hard so we want to not look back and really mean it. Too often we let ourselves focus on the bad things that happen to us in our day to day lives and not reward ourselves when we do something that is awesome or when something amazing happens. Yeah, we are thrilled at the time it happens but then when it’s over, it’s just kinda – over.

 

Not this year! We want everyone to make a special 2015 Rememberlutions Jar. With this jar you can decorate it however you want and get ready to fill it with every wonderful experience you have in 2015. Big or small. Did you meet a celebrity? Write about it put the date and put it in the jar. Did you help out at a local food drive? That’s awesome! Put it in the jar! No matter what awesome thing you did this year write it on a small piece of paper and put that sucker in your Rememberlutions Jar.

 

At the end of the year you can open the jar and reflect back on all of the awesome things that happened in 2015. Even if things do get rocky at times you will have this jar to keep you going and seeing it fill up will be a great reminder that things aren’t all bad.

 

Have a wonderful new year everyone.

 

Birch (Dec 24-Jan20)

Few trees Figure more prominently in the folklore of Northern Europe then the birch. Deemed sacred to Thor, Norse god of thunder and lightning, the birch symbolizes youth and spring time. It is one of the hardiest trees in the world; Growing further north, and, with the rowan and the ash, higher up mountains then any other species.

 

The birch is called The Tree of Inception” with good reason. Not only does it self-sow, forming groves , but it is one of the earliest forest trees to put out leaves in spring.

 

Birch lore turns up in many cultures. The Dakota Sioux burn birch bark to discourage thunder spirits. Dutch farmers decorate a birch branch with red and white ribbons to safeguard horses in their stables. Scandinavians carry a young dried leaf for good luck on the first day of a new job. Basque country folk use birch oil to anoint love candles.

 

A bough on the roof protects a German home from lightning strikes. A birch grove guarded the house and land in colonial New England. Many sources claim that smoke rising from a fire of birch logs purifies the surroundings. It is also called the tree of December.

Kwanzaa

December 22, 2014, 12:26 AM

Kwanzaa is a African American and Pan-African holiday that is celebrated between December 26th and January first.  Kwanzaa celebrates family, community and culture. It was created in 1966 by Dr.Maulana Karenga. Dr. Karenga is a professor of Africana Studies at California State University in Long Beach. Dr. Karenga is also a author and a scholar-activist who stresses the crucial need to preserve, continually revitalize, and promote African American culture.

 

Kwanzaa’s origins are in the first harvest celebrations of Africa from which it takes its name. The name Kwanzaa is derived from the phrase “matunda ya kwanza” which means first fruits in Swahili, a Pan-African language which is the most widely spoken African language. The first fruits celebrations are recorded in African history as far back as ancient Egypt and Nubia, and appear in ancient and modern times in other classical African civilizations such as Ashantiland and Yorubaland. These celebrations are also found in ancient and modern times among societies as large as empires {the Zulu or kingdoms Swaziland} or smaller societies and groups like the Matabele,Thongs,and Lovedu, all of southeastern Africa.  Kwanzaa builds on the five fundamental  activities of Continental African “first fruit” celebrations: ingathering, reverence, commemoration, recommitment, and celebration.

 

 

Kwanzaa is a time for the following:

 

~ingathering of the people to reaffirm the bonds between them

~special reverence for the creator and creation in thanks and respect for the blessings, bountifulness and beauty of creation

~commemoration of the past in pursuit of its lessons and in honor of its models of human excellence, our ancestors

~recommitment to our highest cultural ideals in our ongoing effort to always bring forth the best of African cultural thought and practice

~a time for celebration of the Good, the good of life and of existence itself, the good of family, community and culture, the

good of the awesome and the ordinary, in a word, the good of the divine, natural and social.

 

 

Kwanzaa was first created to reaffirm and restore our rootedness in African culture. It is, therefore, an expression of recovery and reconstruction of African culture which was being conducted in the general context of the Black Liberation Movement of the sixties and in the specific context of The Organization Us, the founding organization of Kwanzaa and the authoritative keeper of its tradition. Secondly, Kwanzaa was created to serve as a regular communal celebration to reaffirm and reinforce the bonds between us as a people. It was designed to be an ingathering to strengthen community and reaffirm common identity, purpose and direction as a people and a world community. Thirdly, Kwanzaa was created to introduce and reinforce the Nguzo Saba {the seven principles}. They are:

~Umoja {Unity}

~Kujichagulia {Self-Determination}

~Ujima {Collective Work and Responsibility}

~Ujamaa {Cooperative Economics}

~Nia {Purpose}

~Kuumba {Creativity}

~Imani {Faith}

 

 

In Kwanzaa, there are also symbols. They represent values and concepts reflective of African culture and contributive to community building and reinforcement. The basic symbols in Swahili and then in English are:

 

Mazao {The Crops}

These are symbolic of African harvest celebrations and of the rewards of productive and collective labor.

 

Mkeka {The Mat}

This is symbolic of their tradition and history and so, the foundation on which they build.

 

Kinara {The Candle Holder}

This is symbolic of their roots, their parent people–continental Africans.

 

Muhindi {The Corn}

This is symbolic of their children and their future which they embody.

 

Mishumaa Saba {The Seven Candles}

These are symbolic of the Nguzo Saba, the Seven Principles, the matrix, and minimum set of values which African people are urged to live by in order to rescue and reconstruct their lives in their own image and according to their own needs.

 

Kikombe cha Umoja {The Unity Cup}

This is symbolic of the foundational principle and practice of unity which makes all else possible.

 

Zawadi {The Gifts}

These are symbolic of the labor and love of parents and the commitments made and kept by the children.

 

The two supplemental symbols are:

 

Bendera {The Flag}

The colors of the Kwanzaa flag are the colors of the Organization Us, black, red and green; black for the people, red for their struggle, and green for the future and hope that comes from their struggle. It is based on the colors given by the Hon. Marcus Garvey as national colors for African people throughout the world.

 

Nguzi Saba Poster {Poster of The Seven Principles}

 

Colors

 

Kwanzaa’s colors are black, red and green. These colors can be utilized in decorations for Kwanzaa of course. Decorations should also include traditional African items such as African baskets, cloth patterns, art objects, harvest symbols,etc..

 

Celebrating Kwanzaa

 

There is a traditionally established way of celebrating Kwanzaa.  First, you should come to the celebration with a firm respect for its values, symbols and practices, and do nothing to violate its integrity, beauty, and expansive meaning. Second of all, you should not mix the Kwanzaa holiday with any other culture. This would violate the principles of Kujichagulia {Self Determination}, and thus, violate the integrity of the holiday.

Thirdly, choose the best and most beautiful items to celebrate Kwanzaa. This means taking the time to plan and select the most beautiful objects of art, colorful African cloth, fresh fruits and vegetables, etc. so that every object used represents African culture and your commitment to the holiday in the best of ways.

 

Procedures

 

First, a central place in the home for the Kwanzaa set, the symbols of Kwanzaa are chosen.  A table is then spread with a beautiful  piece of African cloth. Then, the mkeka {mat} is placed down and all of the other symbols are placed on it or immediately next to it to symbolize our rootedness in our tradition. Next the Kinara {candle holder} is placed on the mat and the Mishumaa Saba{seven candles} are placed in the kinara {candle holder}.

 

To represent the colors of Kwanzaa, one black candle, and three red, and three green candles are used. Black represents the people, red represents their struggle, and green represents their future and hope that comes from their struggle. These candles are the seven candles. They represent the seven principles. The black candle represents the first principle Umoja{Unity}. It is placed in the center of the Kinara. The red candles represent the principles of Kujichagulia {self determination}, Ujamaa {cooperative economics} and Kuumba {creativity}, and are placed to the left of the black candle. The green candles represent the principles of Ujima {collective work and responsibility}, Nia {purpose} and Imani {faith}. They are placed to the right of the black candle. The black candle is lit on the first day of the celebration. The remaining candles are lit afterward from left to right on the following days. This procedure is to indicate that the people come first, then the struggle, and then the hope that comes from the struggle.

 

Day of Meditation

 

The last day of Kwanzaa is January the first. Historically for African people, this has been a time of sober assessment of things done and things to do, of self reflection and reflection on the life and future of the people and of recommitment to their highest cultural values in a special way. It is for followers of Kwanzaa to ask and soberly answer the three Kawaida questions. Who am I? Am I really who I say I am? Am I all I ought to be? And it is, of necessity, a time to recommit themselves to their highest ideals, in a word, to the best of what it means to be both African and human in the fullest sense.

 

This Day of Assessment or Day of Meditation is noted in the first fruits celebration of the Akan by J.B. Danquah. He states that the Akan have one day during the first fruits harvest in which they engage in silent reflection. The idea is to maintain a quiet, humble and calm attitude with regard to oneself and towards one’s neighbors. It is a good time for reassessment and recommitment on a personal level.

 

Closely related to this is an activity noted by Danquah and Sarpong, the Day of Remembrance of the Ancestors or the Adae celebration. One could use one of the days to pay homage to the ancestors, those of the national community, and those of the family.

 

Happy Kwanzaa to all who celebrate!

 

CUSP OF PROPHECY, SAGITTARIUS-CAPRICORN

December 17, 2014, 4:59 AM

By: Adam

 

 

 

Several years ago I woke early while staying at a village along the Mekong Delta. I watched a short, lovely woman usher two children into a long canoe carved out of a log. She wore a bonnet, a toothless smile, and her hands looked big and strong yet soft and gentle; a Mama’s hands. It was fall and thus the first day of school. I watched Mama push away from the stilt building and canoe the youngsters away. I later learned that school was two miles away, and that Mama had done this with other children who came along before the two I just witnessed. She believed in them, believed in fairness and wanted her children to have a fair chance. She had a clear idea of a bigger picture for them, yet she was practical, sturdy and earthy enough to make that bigger picture happen even if it meant rowing a log up a river every morning–getting those kids to school, getting them moving, arming them with intelligence.

 

Mama and the canoe was such a humble and beautiful scene it is to me the epitome of a Sagittarius-Capricorn cusper. What you get is a mix of fiery, visionary focus and action aimed at making the world a better place, adjusting the odds for someone who might not otherwise have a fair chance. Remember, if you will, Artemis or Diana or Robin of Locksley (Katniss Everdeen if you are shy with mythology). Then you mix this fireball of fairness and vision with the lumbering, granite-sturdy practicality of Capricorn’s earthen resolve. I know, I sound like I am promoting a boxing match between Saturn (Lord of Restriction, Cardinal Earth) and Jupiter (Lord of Fortune, Mutable Fire). But I am not promoting a duel of any sort because Sagittarius and Capricorn meet in the cusp almost perfectly. The only real problem area is when intensities are not managed or tempered there is a tendency to feel at the mercy of one’s moods and get a bit dark and moody.

 

Date Range: December 19th through December 25th, respectively.

 

What they need: These cuspers need to see others doing their best. Why? Because when Sagittarius-Capricorn cuspers commit to something, they put it all in and will expect others to do the same.

 

Relationships: In relationships the Sagittarius-Capricorn will often be the epitome of the speed-up-slow-down, hurry-up-and-wait relationship partner. Why? The biggest challenge here is balancing Sagittarius’ desire to go fast with Capricorn’s slow and steady pace. This can sometimes lead to some dark and quiet slow periods–i.e., “Where did they go? And why aren’t they communicating?” These cuspers are, however, innately loving and hardworking. So when their relationship switch is in the “On” position, they are the perfect partner.

 

Strengths: Successful and they don’t quit. Loyal. They have zero propensity for deceit. When involved with something cutting-edge that will most likely benefit others, this cusper is outgoing, funny, resilient, and ever the uplifter. These cuspers are devoutly fair, and they are naturally good with children.

 

Weaknesses: The only real rough spot these cuspers have is the effort factor. When they dive into something, they will give their all and stay to the very end–that is, they will make it work, make it happen, whatever it is. This means if you are involved or working with a Cusp of Prophecy cusper and you do not give your all or need to back-out of said project before it reaches fruition, you’re gonna get heat.

 

What they love: They love ambition, and Big Dreams: dreams that change the world; and it doesn’t if it is their dream or someone else’s, if they jump in, they will stay to the end.

 

 

Name of Cusp: Cusp of Prophecy. I have, however, heard these delightful beings being referred to as Sagicorns.

 

Cusp of Prophecy Famous Personalities: Ralph Fiennes, Humphrey Bogart, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kiefer Sutherland, Sissy Spacek, Jimmy Buffet, two of the BeeGees (Robin and Maurice Gibb), Phil Donahue, Ricky Martin, and Mary Higgins Clark.

The Star

By: Lulu G

 

 

 

I absolutely love this card. The pictures i’ve seen on various decks have shown such stunning art. In the traditional deck we see a naked woman kneeling on the ground. One hand pouring out a container over a lake and the other hand pouring over the land.  We see lush green fields and even a mountain scape in the background as well as the Stars above the woman centered on the card. This woman looks young and determined in her work.

 

Card meaning

 

It’s like the dawning of a new day when this card comes. Strong feelings of hope and renewal seems like it’s within your grasp. Its that settling gentle nurturing and call to a more positive thought process that brings such wonderful things with this card in any reading. It’s this calm after the storm and things are starting to look brighter than it has for a while. Balance is still needed and you must make sure you listen to your inner self when you’ve reached your limits. it will do no good to get wonderful things and not be able to see the inspiration. There is some connection to astrology when this card comes up. As if to give the receiver some helpful guidance the Star reaches out and offers the art of astrology. Pay close attention to what the stars are telling you for the future.

 

Reverse meaning

 

When the Star comes up in reverse you might need to step back and really see what it is that’s going on and reevaluate where it is you fit. When this card comes in reverse theres a sense of relying heavily on hope and optimism. Sometimes in readings the star in reverse could come up if you’re asking the same question over and over again in hopes that you’ll get an answer you want instead of an answer you need to hear. Relax and again really take a look at where it is you are and the situation that you are in and take some actions to further yourself.

Stress should not be elongated because it is harmful and it is important for individuals to always be on a look-out of the ways that can help them to manage and diminish stress levels from their lives. Out of many methods including jogging, exercise and the like, one effective method that can help in reducing stress levels is a massage.

 

A blessing to lead a healthy and stress free life is what we all wish for. The need to live a healthy life is a must if a person wants to taste the nectar of life. However, the increase in the amount of stress levels and daily work load make it difficult for people to live a tension free life. Whether you are an owner of a company or an employee in a firm, all of us experience substantial amount of stress in life from work, relationships and other situations.

 

Stress should not be elongated because it is harmful and it is important for individuals to always be on a look-out of the ways that can help them to manage and diminish stress levels from their lives. Out of many methods including jogging, exercise and the like, one effective method that can help in reducing stress levels is a massage. It helps an individual to become restful and is an effective way of reducing nervous tension.

Previously, the techniques of massage were popular in few countries only, but today it is a part of all over UK and USA. In fact, a lot of people in United States of America take help of various massage techniques to minimize stress levels. Whether you stay in Newport Beach, Soho or any other place in the USA, you will definitely find a massager to massage Newport Beach and help you reduce your stress levels. There are a lot of different types of techniques used by massage therapists that help reduce stress and tension from body and mind.

 

Massage Soho has positive effects on human body; it is a treatment to numerous ailments including Fibromyalgia, Alzheimer and Parkinson’s disease. Although, it cannot cure the disease, it helps the patients deal with the symptoms of disease by lessening nervous behavior including pacing and mumbling. There are numerous positives of massage but one cannot deny the fact that if done incorrectly, it can increase muscle spasm and stress levels.

 

Hence, it is important to search for a reputed, experienced and well trained massage therapist that can help you reduce your tension and stress levels instead of increasing it.

DIY Body Butters, Creams, and Scrubs

December 8, 2014, 12:34 AM

By: Erin

 

 

If you are scratching your head for ideas on what to get for people this holiday season a great idea is to make some homemade lotions and potions. They are fun to make and people really seem to enjoy them and knowing that you took the time to whip them up yourself adds that little extra warm and tingly feeling.

 

The ingredients in most of these are pretty cheap and most you probably already have in your home. You just need some little jars which you can either save up yourself from jams or the like or if you want to you can go to your local craft store and grab a bunch of jars. Depending on the size (you just need small ones) they range anywhere from $1 – $4 usually.

 

I’ll post some of the scrubs and lotions I’ve gotten the best feedback on below.

 

 

1. Sugar Body Scrub

This one is super easy and takes very little time. Simply mix coconut oil and sugar in a bowl until it becomes a paste and then add in a few drops of your favorite essential oil. I used grapefruit essential oil but feel free to use any you like. Note that depending on how big of a batch you make will determine how much oils and sugar you will use. This recipe is really easy and one of my favorites because it is really easy to eyeball and doesn’t require measuring.

 

When you are finished with your mixture spoon into your jars and finish off with a nice ribbon. I also like to get labels and write what it is on the jar with a nice colorful marker and add the essential oil that I used. People love it. I’ve been asked to make this repeatedly for people.

 

 

2. Cocoa Body Scrub and Body Butter

This one I actually experimented making with a friend one day for the heck of it and it ended up turning out amazing so that following holiday season we ended up making a bunch of it for all of our friends and family. It was an absolute hit. I have even made this and sold it at farmers markets. It’s a bit of a process but it’s so worth the end result!

 

To make the body scrub:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/8 cup melted cocoa butter
  • 1/4 cup  sweet almond oil
  • raspberry extract (optional) -recommended because the cocoa is very overwhelming.

Melt the cocoa butter over low heat and then mix all ingredients in a bowl. After you have your ingredients mixed spoon them into your little mason jar and finish off with a ribbon or decoration of your choice.

 

To make the body butter:

  • 1/4 cup shea butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa butter
  • 1/8 cup sweet almond oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 8 drops raspberry extract (optional) -recommended because the cocoa is very overwhelming.

Melt shea butter and cocoa butter together over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in the oils then pour mixture into jars and allow to cool before putting on the lids. After mixture is cool you can put on the lids on tightly and finish off with decoration of you choice.

 

Make sure you give these gifts together and the receiver knows with any scrub to use lotion directly after.


 

3. Cinnamon and Lemon Body Scrub

Probably the best mixture/scrub for the cooler months. It’s super refreshing and you use it while in a nice steamy hot shower or relaxing in a nice warm bath. Best yet is that all of the ingredients are most likely in your kitchen already.

 

In a bowl mix olive oil, lemon juice, cinnamon, and cane sugar until its a watery paste consistency. Pour your Mixture into your jar and add label and ribbons or decorate however you wish to give to that special someone. Makes a great exfoliant.

 

 

4. Whipped Body Butter With Essential Oils

There are a bunch of different ways you can make this because there are literally dozens and dozens of essential oil mixtures out there that create the perfect body butter mixture. I am going to use one called “New Morning” because it is cooling and energizing and it also uses some of my favorite essential oils, grapefruit, peppermint and wintergreen.

 

Now, this is a whipped body butter so it’s going to take some time and patience. There are quite a few steps to this and I actually watched a lot of youtube videos on this before trying it for the first time because reading how to do it I was still clueless so don’t feel bad if you read this blog and are like “what is she talking about?!” I was right there with you about 2 years ago. In fact, sometimes I still have to refer back to some of those youtube videos if its been a while and I messed something up or missed a step. (Just a friendly cheat for you.)

 

Ok, your ingredients:

1-3/4 cups shea butter (unrefined is best)

1/2 cup coconut oil (extra virgin is best)

1/4 cup grapeseed oil

essential oils (grapefruit, peppermint and wintergreen)

 

Measure out shea butter and coconut oil (which will be solid at a room temperatures below 76 degrees) and melt over medium-low heat in a double broiler, stirring constantly until there are no lumps left. Let cool about 30 minutes, then stir in the grapeseed oil and essential oils. Cover the oil mixture and freeze for about 20-30 minutes, or refrigerate for 1-2 hours. You want the mixture to start to solidify but not completely harden, a consistency similar to soft wax or softened butter. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and whip until soft and fluffy. Spoon into your jars and decorate as you want to give.

 

Nostradamus and the Pigs.

December 3, 2014, 12:09 AM

By: J Nighteagle

 

 

 

The sixteenth century prophet generally predicted war, death, and natural disasters – monumental events he augured primarily through astrological calculations. But lovers of Nostradamus cherish the little story of the farmer, the white pig and the black pig.

 

Nostradamus was invited to a feast by a rich farmer, skeptical of the prophets abilities. The farmer had two pigs ready to serve his quests, he told Nostradamus, a white pig and a black pig. Which would be presented at dinner? The black pig Nostradamus replied. The farmer went into the kitchen and ordered the chef to serve the white pig.

 

During the course of the feast the farmer summoned his chef and asked which pig the guests were consuming. When my back was turned a dog carried off the carcass of the white pig; he confessed. So I served the black pig.

 

The story happens to be true but sounds like a fable. The moral might be: Seers may see large and seers may see small.

In my work with couples, certain themes have emerged that can help us understand how a couple that was once close can drift so far apart.

 

How couples drift apart

 

1) Life got in the way. Somehow, in the midst of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, couples seem to forget about each other. The initial closeness they once felt has been damaged by focus on work, the bills, the kids, you name it.

 

2) Each takes the other for granted. This can slowly eat away at any connection a couple might feel. What makes it worse is that it is so very easy to do. Keeping priorities straight in our stressful lives can be very difficult. We get so caught up in simply living that we forget about making a life with our partner.

 

3) Each stops treating the other well. Somehow we succumb to the notion that all the things we used to do that brought us together are no longer necessary. It’s like the old joke about the couple that had been married for several years and one day the wife said to the husband, `You never say you love me anymore!” The husband responds with, `Well, dear, I told you I loved you on our wedding day. If anything changes, I’ll let you know.”

 

4) Resentments are held. Old grudges, hurts and resentments are a cancer that can eat away at the closeness of a couple.

 

5) Communication stops. This is the most frequent reason given by couples as a factor in their drifting apart. Once a couple stops communicating, it’s just a matter of time before the roommate syndrome sets in.

 

If you recognize your relationship in the above examples, hang in there; you are not alone and there is a way out. Couples don’t plan on growing apart, they simply drift apart over time. Just the opposite is true about growing closer again. You don’t just drift into it, you intentionally take action designed to grow closer together. Here are some tips from the couples I’ve worked with that have helped them grow closer again.

 

How couples can get close again

 

1) Have a conversation about how you first met and what first attracted you to each other.

 

2) Talk about the times you have felt the most connected. Then list the things you did that helped create that closeness. Then do those things again.

 

3) Mention something your partner did that you enjoyed. For example, “I loved it today when you gave me a break from the kids/ held my hand/ hugged me/helped me at the office, etc.”

 

4) Discover what your partner’s “love language” is. Do they most need to see it, hear it, or feel it in order to feel most loved?

 

If you don’t know, ask.

 

5) Ask your partner what their “perfect day” would be like and then create as much of it as you can.

 

6) Renew and/or rewrite your vows. Who says we can say these important words only once? Renewing vows, commitments and words of love can rapidly and powerfully bring a couple closer together.

 

These are just a few suggestions for the road back to closeness and connection. I would love to hear from couples about how they have made the journey back to closeness after drifting apart.
