Wishing all the great mamas out there (and even ones who could work on their mothering skills set) a most enjoyable Mother’s Day!!!
We really are the luckiest girls to be chosen as Mama Bears!!
My instagram & twitter friend La Chica Organica sent me the sweetest care package in the mail last week!!
This mama is a gem full of amazing health information and I always walk away inspired when I visit her website: lachicaorganica.wordpress.com She has been on a serious health journey and she knows her herbs (and teas and lip balms – look!!)
It was all packaged so cute….
She made a special tea blend JUST FOR ME 🙂 It had lots of my favorite herbs like lemonbalm & rooibos!!
Don’t you just love the look of it!!??
And check out this adorable lip balm tin with a slide top xoxo (in love!!)
*INSERT SPOOF PICTURE OF ME MAKING A KISSY FACE WHILE KEEPING ONE EYE ON THE NEIGHBOR HERE*
ANYWAYS – back to adoring the sweet cuteness of all these goodies!!
See that gorilla up there? That was this little folded origami tea bag holder thingamajig that held 2 packets of organic white tea – which would be an awesome way to travel with tea or give as a gift to a friend!! I can vouch – I LOVE IT!!
And this lip balm!!! Incredible!! Perfect slip & flavor xoxo and Yes! Those are organic dried rose flowers in it and YES!! That little notch in the lip balm is from me impatiently digging into it 🙂 AND YES! IT WAS WORTH IT lol
Really really good stuff. And of course, I had tea time as soon as I could…
And it was absolutely fantastic & refreshing & perfect. I think when people go out of their way to do something special for you – it just completely amplifies the sweetness of it all.
Thanks so much La Chica Organica!!!
Lots & lots & lots of mama love to you!
Will you show your face for peace? I did 🙂
Let’s help myfaceforpeace.org hit their goal of 10,000 sweet faces!
Show your support AND FACE today!!
Peace will never be achieved by force of arms
Positive change is possible only through unity and solidarity of a great mass of people. For too long we have accepted the spectacle for power and money on the stage of world politics. Now let’s show that we notice what happens with open eyes and that we confess together with many our true desire for peace.
Say yes to peace within yourself
Showing face is a first step in a peaceful future. To make this process successful it is inevitable that each of us begins to create peace in the own heart. Let’s start to take responsibility for our own thoughts, feelings and actions and we will find more and more peace in the world.
Let us live peace, rather than only dream
An open heart and an open mind are the most powerful means we have in our hands in order to give peace a chance. Let’s use it for the benefit of all and create the future of our global community.
Peace: it’s up to all of us
my face for peace is an independent peace initiative of the German/Iranian artist Saeeid Dastmalchian and his wife Cordula, launched in October 2012 in Hamburg/Germany for giving face to the wish for global peace.
Forward this along to everyone you know!
FEEL THE PEACE WITHIN XOXO ~ Sadie
Your children are genius creators who have just arrived from Nonphysical, who are feeling empowered. And if they would be left to their own devices, they would not go astray. They would maintain worthiness; they would maintain their feeling of Well-Being. They would thrive, unless it was taught otherwise to them. In other words, if others don’t do something to change their vibration, they are in a vibration of thriving.
What I love most about this video is yes, of course, discovering a new use for my kitchen spoons but also that I am able to kindly ignore my children during a most important face moment, haha, and unknowingly scratch my chest? wth, I do not remember doing that…
Anyways – there’s a huge demand for more Sadie videos like this (from my one friend Ann) so I’m here to deliver!!
I’m starting to really like this lady!! When I logged into Youtube this morning (probably to watch an Abraham Hicks video), she was on my suggested videos to watch. So I watched one called “Clean your pores with kitchen ingredients” and it ended up being baking soda which I thought was cool and a green tea toner – great ideas!
I think her website is definitely worth a visit!
Smooth out those 11 wrinkles 🙂
There is only the understanding of the thing that needs to be taught to every child on the planet, and that is the knowledge that every single individual on this planet is already powerful as he or she needs to be to create any reality desired, without having to hurt yourself, or anyone else, to get it. That’s how powerful you are.
Has somebody told you that there is something you MUST do to save your soul and get into heaven? That’s nonsense dear one ~ You are already safe, eternal, and limitless. You will go where EVERYONE goes! You have nothing to fear ever. Know this, and know gratitude, and know god, and know who you are. Be the positive energy that you want to be! That you ARE!

Teach children to see as all differences as equally valid, and beautiful – and war will end on this planet.
Blessings and Love to ALL!!
This right here is my handy dandy checklist chart to help me follow my 2015 goals and resolutions.
My intentions are to drink more water, do yoga, wash my face twice a day with some facial exercises, and always, every day, write in my grateful goddess appreciation journal.
Until I score some of those little shiny gold sticker stars, I will be X-ing off the water droplets and icons as I go about my day.
So just in case there is another special girl out there interested in drinking more water, doing her yoga, washing her face twice a day, and making sure to write down her daily gratitude, here is the chart that you can print for free:
And the holiday! It never feels too early for me to start intending that I’m going to have a good time!
Before the children wake up, I sit down to participate in two of my favorite writing exercises.
My Grateful Goddess Appreciation Journal and The Abraham Hicks inspired emotional grid.
For the grateful goddess appreciation journal – I just simply list five things that make my heart sing that I am thankful for. Sometimes they are one word descriptions and other times, like today, I go on and ramble a bit. That may also be because I let a month and a half slip by without opening up this beautiful thing. How that happens – I don’t know! It seems as though time is whizzing by quick!
Each time I write in my grateful goddess appreciation journal – I use a different sketch as the icon picture. Today that little happy face with the weird spikes on its head LOL is inspired by the little angels hanging above me…
Not a perfect rendition but it will do 🙂
The next thing I enjoy working on is filling in my emotional grid which is an Abraham Hicks exercise which helps you to put forth specific intentions on how you expect to feel today.
How you make this work for you is to be sure to feel the emotion after you write it down – you cannot rush this exercise, it is best to linger and relish in the word. So it is important to choose words that are meaningful to you. Words that trigger an emotional response. And because your emotions are vibrations – the universe will respond accordingly.
I don’t always get the time to do this every day but I am intending to do it more often. And what a treat today to not only have time to do my writing exercises but actually have time to blog about it too before the kids get up! This early bird stuff is definitely working out for me!!
Further inspirations on:
Be lazy for a little while today because the better you feel, the more you allow good things to manifest in your life.
Everyday To-do List:
~ Meditate for 15 minutes
~ Go outside, no matter the weather, look up & around and talk out loud “You are my favorite_____”
~ Write 5 pages in “My Book of Positive Aspects”
~ Go outside, looking upward & outward and acknowledge the Universal Forces focused right at you…
I acknowledge I am the object of your positive attention & I appreciate your continual gaze on my well being!
I appreciate you being with me always, inspiring, loving, creating, guiding, inspiring, loving, creating, guiding, inspiring, loving, creating, guiding…
Create an endless loop of acknowledgement & appreciation.
Healing the Earth:
A Sacred Art by the Tibetan Lamas of Drepung Loseling Monastery
From all the artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism, that of painting with colored sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite. In Tibetan this art is called dul-tson-kyil-khor, which literally means “mandala of colored powders.” Millions of grains of sand are painstakingly laid into place on a flat platform over a period of days or weeks.
Formed of a traditional prescribed iconography that includes geometric shapes and a multitude of ancient spiritual symbols, the sand-painted mandala is used as a tool for re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants.
The lamas begin the work by drawing an outline of the mandala on the wooden platform, which requires the remainder of the day. The following days see the laying of the colored sands, which is effected by pouring the sand from traditional metal funnels called chak-purs. Each monk holds a chak-pur in one hand, while running a metal rod on its grated surface; the vibration causes the sands to flow like liquid.
Traditionally most sand mandalas are deconstructed shortly after their completion. This is done as a metaphor of the impermanence of life. The sands are swept up and placed in an urn; to fulfill the function of healing, half is distributed to the audience at the closing ceremony, while the remainder is carried to a nearby body of water, where it is deposited. The waters then carry the healing blessing to the ocean, and from there it spreads throughout the world for planetary healing.
Marliebear finally got to use her birthday gingerbread cookie kit from Mama Burkett!
It was lots of yummy fun & have I mentioned how fantastic it is to have a new oven that works!!??
After a little controversy over the prized pink floral apron, everyone got a turn rolling and cutting out the gingerbread men!
Even big brother was game for some cookie dough time ~
UNTIL he realized I was taking pictures lol
THANKS for the pretty face Ayden!!
We LAUGHED so hard.
I insisted he give me ONE sweet faced one ~ and he did.
Even though we used the same cookie cutter, we saw that gingerbread men come in all sizes…
Fat guy was my favorite –
But I KNEW, that this night wasn’t going to be complete without giving the gingerbread man what every gingerbread man needs…
YES, not complete without one!
And every mama who works in the kitchen all day should have a moment of play –
A moment of bliss –
A moment of remembrance
She just HAD to happen!!
Oh and that’s right gingerbread men – YOU BETTER RUN!!!
