The Labyrinth

“The Labyrinth is an archetype, a symbol found in ancient cultures in various forms around the world. By walking the labyrinth, we are discovering a long forgotten mystical tradition.

I find that walking a labyrinth relaxes and grounds me in a very deep, profound way. The journey towards the center is all about letting go, so when we arrive there, we can listen with an open heart and bring love back into the world.

As we walk the meandering yet purposeful path through the labyrinth, it becomes a  metaphor for our journey through life with all it’s turns and twists.

Herbal Hair Balm

I have been making my own hair shampoos, hair balms, and conditioners since the early 80’s, and I need to make a new batch of hair balm today because I used all of what was left this morning.

I have several recipes I use for making hair balms which vary from simple to more complicated. The one I am making today is very easy. For this recipe you will need organic coconut oil, grade A olive oil, shea butter and essential oils. You will also need chamomile, lavender, rosemary and tea tree essential oils which you can find at your local Health Food Store and a container with a lid in which to store your hair balm.

Mix together 3 tablespoons of coconut oil with a 1/4 teaspoon of grade A olive oil and shea butter and blend well, and then add 2 – 4 drops of each essential oil according to your taste and mix thoroughly. The end product should look like whipped cream.

Your finished product should be thick but not solid. It may take a couple of times before you get it just right. However, it’s well worth the effort because you will have made a  product for your hair that has no harmful additives.

Rescue Remedy Day

Today we are having some work done in our yard and all the noise has been upsetting our dog. Several years ago, our Vet suggested we try a couple of drops of Rescue Remedy in his water when he experiences bouts of extreme anxiety, so I added two drops to his water and after several minutes he finally settled down.

I always carry a bottle of Resue Remedy with me at all times, and have used it on many occasions with immediate results. I really love this stuff…

Crystal Singing bowls

Crystal singing bowls are one of the most powerful tools for relaxing the body and mind. Like many forms of alternative vibrational healing, such as Reiki, flower essences, and crystals, the singing bowls help to dissolve energetic blockages in our chakras, allowing our body to return to it’s natural state of balance.

I received my first crystal singing bowl in the late 90’s, during a time in my my life where I found myself feeling particularly tired and exhausted. One day during my lunch break I visited a shop where they had a beautiful sanctuary set up with all kinds of crystal bowls, water fountains, and statuary. As I was admiring the crystal bowls, the owner offered to play them for me.

We then sat on floor cushions and she began playing the bowls. I felt my whole body begin vibrating, and when she had finished I felt completely relaxed, renewed, and invigorated. It was such a wonderful experience!

Later, when I brought my first bowl home I placed it in my meditation room and began exploring several ways of working with it. I started using aromatherapy by rubbing the rim with essential oil and as I played the bowl the fragrance was released into the air. Heavenly!

My first Crystal Singing BowlRoot Chakra

Inspired by Dr. Masaru Emoto’s book “Messages From Water”, I started making flower essences using my crystal bowl and was amazed as I watched the flower essence water dance, creating patterns as I played the bowl.

Over the years, I have collected both Crystal and Tibetan Singing bowls, and they have become part of my own spiritual healing journey. I took my time selecting my bowls and sometimes years passed before I bought my next one. The journey has been slow but very rewarding.

Here is a site which may help you wade through all the debate and stories surrounding singing bowls.

Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women.
