Healing Tip: "Music impacts all 4 lobes of the brain; it can reach places that words alone cannot reach. Pay attention to the music in your life. When possible, listen to instrumental music that you find supportive or uplifting. Prepare a "magical music" kit for your home, office or care. Listen to the music that you know supports you; your mind, body and spirit will thank you!"

Healing tip: "Almost all health issues and diseases begin in the gut. The immune system starts in the digestive system, so when we feed our pets food that is overly processed, contains fillers, inappropriate carbs, GMOs and pesticides, and vague ingredients, your pet will eventually pick up the tab with compromised health. The good news is that there are other options such as raw food, canned food, and even a few brands of baked kibble that use more species appropriate binders such as sprouted peas or quinoa."

Healing Tip: "When “Yes” is Less.....To de-stress and re-energize, carve out a regular personal “sabbath” time, devoted to self-care, rest and renewal. It can be any day of the week, part of a day, even an hour or so.
Say “no” to all outside distractions and focus on what allows you to be still and listen to your heart. You might choose to light a candle, sit in quiet meditation and focus on your breath, read something uplifting, journal, or take a silent walk in nature. The possibilities are endless; the results- a more relaxed and centered you!"

Healing tip: "Taking care of your skin is very important. Skincare is like taking a prescription from your doctor. You get the best results when you stick to taking it the same way at the same time.

Healing Tip: "What’s your favorite fairy tale? In fairy tales, traditional stories, and heroic myths, the characters are forced to endure the entire spectrum of impossible, tragic, unjust situations. They transform their lives completely. Such tales are very therapeutic because the patient finds his or her own solutions, resolving inner conflicts that ultimately change the external conditions, too. Using the lens of health and healing, take a closer look at your favorite fairy tale. What can a fairy tale teach you today about your own health & healing?"

Healing tip: "Our youth hold the power of our world's healing. Are we giving them the best options for their own health and capability to adapt to and live in a confusing, constantly changing world? Natural, holistic, Chinese-based medicine activates and teaches self-healing processes. It needs to be a first-response approach instead of potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals. Have you thought of how safely and effectively treating the root and whole aspect of our youth could impact our future?"

Healing tip: "Allergy season is on its way, doTerra essential oils are here to help support you! A couple drops of BREATHE blend placed on the palm of your hands then rubbed together and cupped in front of your nose and mouth (but not touching your face) act as a natural inhaler. Rub your hands on your chest after. Also the softgel, Tri-Ease is a mixture of lemon, peppermint and lavender. When taken internally, it acts as both an astringent and natural antihistamine."
Elise Fox~Rose Compresses & Kerrianne Bee Beeswraps

I am greatly honored to share with you today at the Ashland Conscious Living Fair. I am also sharing the Forest Healing Center and Bee Sanctuary proposal which is emerging at Foresthealingcenter.com
Healing tip: "Notice what is growing in your area and think about how you can form symbiotic relationships. I like fir tip tea, calendula oil, rose petals and hips, lavender.

Healing Tip: "Want to manifest more money? Give away some money! Find a place or person or group that inspires you, and give to them out of your real gratitude and appreciation without any expectation of return. This changes your inner feeling from one of lack: "I don't have it" to PLENTY: "I have it to give." And when you feel abundant, you attract more money!"

There are so many good ways to ground: walk on the grass, imagine roots coming from the bottom of your feet and growing into the Earth, or hold a large grounding stone like obsidian or smoky quartz.

Pam Lott, Clutter -relief Specialist & Owner, simplifize™ life
"I was born with a sixth sense for organizing, but I always took it for granted. I thought everyone could see what I saw and make it happen. Combining my organizing superpowers with a coaching and design background, I created simplifize life because it takes organizing AND simplifying to put the "OHM back into your home” and create peaceful, relaxing spaces that look, feel and function great so you can too!" ~Pam Lott
Healing tip: "Your most powerful clutter clearing(and manifesting) tool is clarity. When you make space to get clear, you immediately know what's cluttering up your life, draining your energy, and keeping you stuck. And it effortlessly begins to leave your life, making room for what you do want. So get clear about what's important to you, then align your "stuff" with your goals by keeping those things that support who you are becoming and what's important to you."
Angie Thusius~Kentro Body Balance
As a young woman I suffered a serious back accident; my distress was not remedied by osteopathy or other therapies, including my certification in Iyengar Yoga. In ’86, I created Kentro (Greek for ‘center’), the only method that helped me completely overcome my pain and stiffness. Now, at 76 years of age, I move with vitalizing comfort, haven’t lost height, and feel fit as a fiddle.
Healing tip: "How would you like to sit (anywhere) with vitalizing comfort and ease? Simply sit at the edge of a fabric wedge (jacket, pillow etc.), place one leg out front and slant the other leg with the foot close to the chair, creating stability, letting your relaxed pelvis stretch freely as you bend back and forth to eat, type, etc. Relax the shoulders and bring your arms back, letting your spine straighten on its own. No need to “correct” your posture; the Kentro centering guidelines revive dynamic, enjoyable motion, through your activities!"

We dig the holes, fertilize with manure by hand, and care for our plants every step of the way, farm to face, to ensure the highest quality, potency, and love in every product. You will feel the "farm to face" hemp oil extract, botanicals, and essential oils promote a restored spirit as well as outer beauty, because we are as focused on your heart as we are on your skin.
Healing tip: If you have dry, mature, or inflamed skin, consider an organic CBD skin care regimen. Cannabinoids are extremely anti-inflammatory and anti-aging, and as skin cells contain cannabinoid receptors, there is amazing therapeutic potential, especially for those with dermatologic conditions. Hemp CBD oil also contains several vitamins which are great for skin! "

Kerrianne Bee~Mind Your Own Beeswraps
Mind your own beeswraps, reusable beeswax food wraps was inspired by making hive cloths with my bee sisters of the College of the Melissae, Center for Sacred Beekeeping. I’ve put much care into fine tuning my recipe of wild crafted pine resin from the Mt. Shasta area, beeswax and organic jojoba oil.
Beeswraps are a great alternative to plastic which eventually finds its way to the landfill or even our Oceans, and when used with care, will last up to one year.
The bees bring us many gifts, one of them of course being wax. When we respectfully harvest and give gratitude for the wax, the bees are happy to supply us for sustainable uses. Let us give thanks to the bees for their many blessings!

In her treatments, Heather utilizes cranio-sacral therapy in conjunct with esoteric and traditional acupuncture to help clear and align the energy body, which helps clients achieve greater health and harmony in all aspects of their lives; mind, body and spirit.
Healing tip: "Our body is a miraculous self-harmonizing instrument, and like a guitar, when we take time to tune the strings or the meridians we can play in a beautiful and optimal way. Thus, through practices like Esoteric Acupuncture and the Four Directional Model, we can not only achieve greater physical health in the body, but also attune to our Higher Selves and the Spiritual Heart. When we are grounded and in alignment with our center we can manifest creative visions and aspirations, healing in platonic and procreative relationships, and a greater connection to all levels of our being."
