The final finishing cut... you can muscle your way through turning up to this point.... but not here, unless you want to sand till the cows come home 😋
I've gotten more serious about meditation over the past month and it's really helped me with my life and my turning.
Let go of the world, control your breathing, tools are sharp ... belief in them, no pressure, let the wood come to you, listen to the piece, it tells you everything you need to know if you listen carefully, it's a beautiful thing. .
Want to see how the platter turned out? You'll have to wait for my website update November 23. Got to go... I've got lots to do.

Our root chakra is our support or base center. It is responsible for one to feel a sense of safety and security on this earthly journey. The root chakra is comprised of whatever grounds you to stability. Your basic needs like food, water, shelter and fears come from our root chakra. When our root chakra is unbalanced we can experience fear, anxiety, stress and worry. Here are some tips to ground your root chakra.
2. Walk on grass with your bare feet.
3. Repeat the following mantra for 2 minutes: I️ am safe, I️ am grounded, I️ am supported, I️ am loved.
4. Close your eyes and imagine that you are standing on the ground, envision tree roots growing from the bottom of your feet into the earth connecting to the earths core. At the core, picture your roots connecting to the earths minerals, crystals and soil. Feel the beautiful connection to Mother Earth, feel how you are supported and provided with stability from our beautiful Mother Earth.
Once upon a time, before The Great Separation, the Taoist masters speak of an era when harmony was practiced in all things.
“In the Age of Perfect Virtue, [humanity] lived among the animals and birds as members of one large family. There were no distinctions between “superior“ and “inferior” to separate one man or species from another. All retained their natural Virtue and lived in the state of pure simplicity…
In the Age of Perfect Virtue, wisdom and ability we’re not singled out as extraordinary. The wise were seen merely as higher branches on humanity’s tree, growing a little closer to the sun. People behaved correctly, without knowing that to be Righteousness and Propriety. They loved and respected each other, without calling that Benevolence. They were faithful and honest, without considering that to be Loyalty. They kept their word, without thinking of Good Faith. In their every day conduct, they helped and employed each other, without considering Duty. They did not concern themselves with Justice, as there was no injustice. Living in harmony with themselves, each other, and the world, their actions left no trace, and so we have no physical record of their existence.”
Excerpt from “The Te Of Piglet” by Benjamin Hoff

We hear the world authenticity frequently these days and it has me thinking about what genuine authenticity is.
To me, it is about being true to yourself and your interactions in every circumstance, not just when it's easy or convenient but also when it takes courage.
Knowing your values and being true to them during times when you may not get the approval of everyone or when it isn't popular is true authenticity.
When we stand strong in ourselves we transform into the being we need to be.
Live your truth fiercely and COURAGEOUSLY ✦
When it rains it pours.. have you felt this before? I certainly have, when sometimes life seems altogether irritating or unfair. So what can one do when our head is full of emotions or thoughts?? This week at Happy Hour we shared about how we each find ways to come back to a calm, productive state when one feels this way. What is your personal way to find your center and chill out when the storm (or fire) is raging? ➡ Here's me: I have acknowledged that I am a super emotional human. SO when life gets tough, I react that way. Being aware of that is been immensely helpful, as I have been practicing to feel my emotions for a short while, then bring in logic and positive thoughts. Sometimes I have to just sit and cry or relax before that can happen. It has been huge for me- not ignoring feelings yet not letting them take over. Finding a balance, a center.
I'd appreciate any other perspectives here, if you care to share 🙌🙌🙌
Who is ready for some transparency? 🙋🏻♀️ I’m a deeply emotional person, we all know this haha. Lately I’ve had some stuff knock me down emotionally and I’ve been on edge, snappy and could cry at the drop of the hat. I ordered this a few weeks ago and forgot it was coming. It showed up today. I immediately applied it and rubbed it in my hands and took some deep breaths. I am calm, cool and collected. I’m always such a skeptic of everything and I’m ALWAYS proved wrong. The key to oils is consistency and I need to remember to not only preach it but follow it. This is a roller I’ll be keeping with me at all times, especially during the crazy holidays! I feel more centered and ready to take on the day! Thanks, Young Living for changing our lives every. single. day. #yleo#tranquil#centered
