Happy Monday!

If there is ever a day in May Cause Miracles that I miss its today. Its Monday and the first day during our course that we have to wake up a little bit earlier and get on that meditation pillow. Thats why for this round, I picked starting on a holiday weekend. You get a little extra cushion to get on that cushion...haha! 

Yesterday we were observers witnessing our fears and many of you shared your fears openly with us in the group. I feel very grateful to each of you because I know your impact. Keep sharing, stay open and engaged. 

Today we focus on opening up, we are willing to change. We are willing to see things differently, willing to see love. When we become willing to change, we surrender to a greater perception, a loving perception. Be willing to see your fears differently. Its easy to get irritated with our ego, viewing it like the enemy. Its not the enemy, your ego is doing what it does best and its been doing a great job for a long time.

At the beginning of my spiritual journey I hit a point where I felt really annoyed with my ego, in fact I hated it. After some soul searching I realized that my ego hating my ego was a self love problem and it wasn't everyone else and every past situation I couldn't control keeping me stuck but it was me. I had a self love problem and whether it was a family member, a life event, or my ego that I was blaming, blaming wasn't solving my problem. I dropped the blame game and realized that MY problems were MY accountability and so was MY happiness. 

Helping others has been the gateway to freeing my own fears. These days I view my ego for exactly what it is and when it comes up send it some love and let it go. I have learned the art of acceptance and accountability and I get the opportunity each day to practice this practice. I choose to see my fears differently because I choose to see love. That choice is a subtle shift we call a miracle. 

I live a miracle mindset life but that doesn't mean I no longer struggle or have low (very low) moments, because trust me I do. I deal with my shit much different now than I did 3-4 years ago - when I feel like I am drowning I turn to my tools, this book, music, my breathe, my ING, my guides, etc...

May Cause Miracles was the map that put it all together for me and gave me structure that offered a clear path to the happiness and love I craved desperately. It all starts with a little awareness and a desire for something better. 

Stay open, stay willing, stay thirsty for clarity and freedom. Don't let a difficult morning, bad traffic, or a sleepless night be the reason you skip a day. You owe this to yourself and the benefits are too sweet.

Be sure to set your alarms throughout the day, check into the group periodically, set todays photo as your background on your phone/computer, spread the good vibes and share on social media! WE got this! We are willing to see this differently, we are willing to see love.

LUSH Haul + Review

image.jpg

I make a trip to lush typically once a month to stock up on bath bombs, purchase a few favorites, and grab some samples. I love trying out their latest products because they are always changing things up and I often find new favorites. 

After loving each product I purchased I thought I would share my thoughts, feelings, opinions, etc...

LUSH HAUL + MINI REVIEW

DreamWash is one of those products I have been interested in purchasing for a while but never really had a use for it. I just didn't understand the difference between a shower smoothie vs a shower gel and I couldnt justify making a purchase. After months of smelling this product and loving it but putting it back on the shelf I finally bought it! 

The Aloe Vera is what got me this time around. With summer finally here and me spending more time out in the sunshine my skin needs that extra TLC. 

This super soft shower smoothie is loaded with rad ingredients. In addition to Aloe Vera, its got Lavender, Tea Tree, Calamine, Chamomile, and my personal favorite...Rose! 

As you can imagine it smells like heaven. Its also super smooth and literally feels like you are putting chocolate mouse all over your skin. 

Thus far I am loving it! A little tip if you purchase this beauty. Let it sit on your body for a few minutes after you lather yourself up. I treat it like a body treatment. Your skin feels so much better and you really get all the benefits if you give it a little extra time to work its magic.

Ok...I know I get a little over zealous when it comes to Lush in general and I OFTEN deem ALL of their products as my favorites. But...this one is definitely a favorite! Best face exfoliant I have honestly ever used. And can we take a second to acknowledge the bad ass name for this one. It does not get cooler than Smugglers Soul. 

I love a lot of their face scrubs but this one is top notch for me. I love that the scrub itself is super fine. It feels more like sand then chunky pieces of almonds (no offense Lush). 

Sandalwood, Argan Oil, and Shea Butter make for such a simple delicious smell. I love it!

Doing some research online I also discovered that they have this baby in a moisturizer as well as a shampoo! Check it out > Moisturizer & Shampoo Bar

Lush is great about samples, if you want to try something ask! With my purchase of DreamWash I passed on a shower gel this round. So instead I asked for a sample of Outback Mate

This one smells super yummy with Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus. Its minty and beachy making you feel happy and clean! 

BATH BOMBS

I go above and beyond to make my Self Love Sunday bath nights magical. As far as candles, music, herbs, intentions, and energy go - its the bath bombs that really make it what it is. 

Bath bombs are really where my Lush addiction started. I have tried them all! Heres what I bought for the month of July!

TWILIGHT - This one is a staple. A very favorite that holds a special place in my heart. It swirls around your bath turning the water into a pink, purple, and blue night sky with little bits of sparkle. It smells of Lavender and Tonka (which I have recently learned is that secret ingredient I am obsessed with). 

This super gentle slow release bath bomb smells totally magical. Its got a warmth to it that makes you feel totally loved by the universe itself. The Lavender relaxes you, the Tonka is incredibly intriguing, and its got a hint of Ylang Ylang for a little bit of sexy.

HONEY BEE - This one is one of my grounding bath bombs. In addition to the obvious honey smell its super earthy! I like to mix herbs with this one for a little extra Gaia Goddess in my life. 

Orange, Honey, Tofee, Bergamot and Moroccan Rhassoul Mud is what makes this extra special. Its also got a hint of Aloe Vera so expect some silky soft skin!

YOGA BOMB - We started off on the wrong foot but now im obsessed. The Yoga Bomb is a super grounding and uplifting bath bomb. Your bath looks like a sunset and smells like a field of oranges and incense. 

I am glad I gave it a second chance after our first encounter because bath night with this one is a groovy journey you dont want to miss out on!

SEX BOMB - This is one of their most popular bath bombs and for good reason. In my book this is the ultimate Self Love bath bomb. Definitely a favorite and definitely one I purchase every time I go. 

This is a sexy bath bomb with all the aphrodisiacs loaded into it! Jasmine, Clary Sage, and Ylang Ylang. You feel relaxed and loved while your senses dance around making a very romantic bath night. 

I also love this one for that special time of the month. Clary Sage is the key to shitty periods! 


And thats my latest purchase! Until next time my sweets...

Much love,
