I was a Project Manager and writer for many years. I have had a passion for animal and human welfare, natural health and beauty and was laid off my corporate job this year, allowing me to go from a time famine to being able to start this blog and potentially inspire and help others on their journey to living their best holistic life.

Domestic Abuse – The Quiet Version

Let’s talk about domestic abuse. There is a picture that immediately comes to mind for most of us however there is a another, far quieter and equally deadly kind. It is when a loved one ceases to be a true partner. Every day we teach others how to treat us by what we do and don’t accept. But loving someone who harms us is a tricky situation. We partner up for many reasons. One of them is to learn how to love more perfectly, we spend our lives learning to truly give of ourselves, to be less self-involved and come together in a giving nurturing spirit. There are a myriad of reasons and excuses for remaining stuck in old behaviors that no longer suit yourself and those around you. However, we….each of us, are called to our own personal brand of greatness! And time is of the essence! It’s time to lose the bad behaviors that cause hurt anxiety and sadness for our family.

 

God sees the intent behind our actions and our heart is fully known to him. He sees your pains, your reasons, your potential used or squandered.

 

There is rain in everyone’s life and there is also joyousness too. Sometimes there is more rain than there is joy and life is not always fair.

 

But I encourage everyone to be a true partner in life. Acknowledge your co-creation of your life as it stands. If you do not like your life so far know that it is up to you to change it . And if you are stuck in an abusive situation you may not be able to change the abuser but you can change your own personal direction .

 

We are all called to fully participate in life, fully participate with loved ones. We are also called to take very good care of ourselves; It is only from a position of strength within ourselves that we can be of the greatest benefit to others . Move past grief or anything else holding you back and engage as a support system for both yourself and those you love.

 

Choosing to remain in weakness drags you and your loved ones down and robs you the opportunity to truly shine the light that only you have.

A friend of mine has been in great pain carrying a heavy burden. Let this burden be lifted, and if you or someone you know is suffering, may the light of loved ones around you and them shine and joy and peace reign.

Mod Stylish Air Purifiers – Rabbit Room Air Purifier Review & Tecool Portable

Rabbitair51SJM8sOlRL

Why we love the  Rabbit room air purifiers.
We live in a polluted world.  And many times, the air inside our homes is the worst to breath!
Below is a link to Dr Axe for more information, but unless you are very careful to use only organic and natural cleaning agents, and environmentally friendly and toxin free furnishings, the average home contains about 10 gallons of synthetic chemical products.
From cigarette smoke, to pesticides,  from paints to household cleansers, to candles and incense or other air fresheners –  all can distribute toxins throughout the home.

We now have 6. I had 2 for several years and then bought 4 more after my Hippocrates training.  This model is the sleekest, plus the customization is great!  We have the fish, pictured, and also one with the Julius monkey cover.  The filters typically last 2 years and are also customizable.   I have owned some ugly air filtration systems in my day and am thankful now that I no longer feel the need to sacrifice style for health. Rabbit offers the Artists Series featuring images by Gustav Klimt, Katsushika Hokusai and original designs by Rabbit Air’s creative team, to offer you a sophisticated answer to stale air.

I leave mine on auto so that they automatically adjust the fan speed high or low as needed to filter the air in the entire room as much as twice an hour.

The Minus A2 – SPA 780 filters as much as 815 square feet while the Minus A2 -SPA 700A, filters as much as 700 square feet.  The unit stands on its own base or you can opt to wall mount it.
I totally dig the mood light, the LED lighting may be turned on so that it provides a soft mellow glow of soothing colours.  It automatically sense when it is dark or ‘nap time’ so I like to read in bed, then turn the light out for bed, watch the colours for a bit while I get myself organized and poof, it goes out a few moments later.  Perfect!
There are six stages of air purification and you can customize, as noted earlier, for Toxin absorbing, Pet allergy, odor, germs.  Many people who keep birds choose this filtration system since birds are very sensitive to bad air.
But it is also sleek and gorgeous!  We have people over and they comment on the filters, because they present themselves as art.
Driving can be very dirty business, as can sitting in a dusty cubicle.  Working from home is such blessing but I recently found myself driving into the office far more than I planned and coughing due to the detritus level. I wanted something for the car and the office that was easily transportable, nice looking and with Hepa filtration.  The Tecool air purifier USB plugs into your car or laptop for easy peasy transition and comes in a soft white or black.   A coworker was chronically coughing one morning so I unplugged my purifier and plugged it into her laptop so she could breathe some fresh air.  Within minutes her coughing grew quieter and then stopped all together.  For $32.99 it’s a great deal.
If you are saddled with some lung congestion, such as from construction or just general pollution, while you work on clearing the air, I recommend Hyland Phosphorus as a natural homeopathic aid for cough or chest congestion. It works fast too!  I am never without this or Fenu-Thyme capsules which have two fabulous lung healing herbs to boost your lung’s ability to clear itself out.
Folks, as we age, the lungs take a real beating.  Support your lungs by cleaning your air, minimizing dirty environments and taking  natural supplements to support them.
