Fruit of Thy Wound




 ~ Secret Language ~

by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
English version by Coleman Barks
         Every part of you has a secret language
         your hands and your feet
         say what you’ve done
         and every need brings in what’s needed
         pain bears its cure like a child

     Your pain "bears its cure like a child", because 
the cure is the pain.



 Jesus said, "If you bring forth what is within you, 
what you bring forth will save you. 
If you do not bring forth what is
within you, what you do not bring forth
 will destroy you."
 --The Gospel of Thomas




 There is no place to go, no master to seek, no medicine to find. The untruth, or ignorance, is that you are separate from the world. This separate "I" is seeking answers. Ask yourself: What cure am I bearing? The truth is that you already have the answers. Allow the "you" that is material-istic to step aside and invite the you that is inner space to present itself. Don't know how? Be still. Come rest your feet and your hands. Let's listen to what is here.

                       DIG IN THE DIRT.





A recent study found that a certain bacterium living in soil,  Mycobacterium Vaccae, increases serotonin levels and neurological growth when inhaled or injested.  
More serotonin = less anxiety and fear
 as well as increased mental capabilities (namely, learning).  


Well, what do you know? Looks like we have evolved to benefit from messing around in fresh soil and sunlight!

You're GROUNDED!!!

When was the last time you were grounded 

And more importantly, what was your relationship

to the grounding itself? 

Did it get you defeated or angry? 

I grounded my two year old earlier this week BIG TIME

She needed it.


Truth is, WE ALL DO.




GROUNDing, also known as Earthing, is the practice of using the direct contact
between the soles of your feet and the earth itself to stimulate healing

GET SOME "VITAMIN G" !

The electrons that are transferred from the ground to your body when you walk over sand, grass, dirt, etc. act as powerful antioxidants. Science is now showing that walking/lying/sitting/standing on or over organic surfaces lowers blood pressure, increases functionality of the immune system, decreases blood thickness, and lowers cortisol levels...and that's barely scratching the surface of all the benefits.

Our feet were MADE for uneven Earthly surfaces!
And we all know how important our feet are for wellness, right?

Now let those two dogs out of their crates and squish some mud between them piggies, y'all!

Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?





Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?*

  The time has come for me to take matters into my own hands--

the way Nature intends and invites us to do. She drops bombs left and right at our feet. Look around you. There is good medicine EVERYWHERE.

 
 I am making products that I WISH existed.
After many years of loving a lotion but not the plastic bottle that it comes in or wanting more out of what I can find at local stores, I have begun the process of cooking up some pretty good stuff for you guys. Yesterday, I hand-collected important ingredients that will be featured in products coming to you soon!

My assistant:
