This is one of the walls as one enters into what appears to be a store front in a shopping mall.  The sign says TEAL. Mind,Body,Wellness, and although there is a rather spa like setting as you enter, it is basic, clean, simple and you immediately feel,  “nice”.  Looking around, it is open, and bright, and coming from outside where it is cold, and very much winter, the atmosphere inside is warm and inviting without being pretentious.

Theses are some of the options offered at Teal.  I’ve been twice now, and both times I’ve come away looking like a greased monkey, high on a lot of TLC and expert attention to my – in need of a holiday body.  We all can’t get away on an exotic holiday, nor do we all have the time or inclination to spend weeks working over time so we can manage a few days off, only to get back to work and find the work we left on our desks still there.

My first visit there, I went for the Ayurveda treatments.  I had a full body treatment and a head massage and a full body Kalp Ubtan treatment.  It was an amazing experience, I have had Ayurveda treatments before, and I always came away totally “spaced”  I am telling you that this combination I experienced that day, was out of this world.  Let me share with you their wording from their website. tealwellness.com

Harmonize your body, mind and senses and experience instant calm and rejuvenation with this ancient Indian shirodhara treatment. Lay back and let us wrap your head and neck in warm towels while gentle botanical water drips over your forehead. The fragrant liquid flows in a rhythmic stream falls into your forehead and rivers around your head nourishing your hair and scalp. Find deep peace and let your tension melt away with every drop.

Ubtan is a very influential lymphatic system intoxicant that is used in variety of body treatments; an aid in the detoxification process. The Ubtan (a herbal paste) is a mixture of fine herbs, spices, grains and selective essentials oils. 

Ubtan, when initially applied over the body, the nature of herbs and spices is induced in the deeper tissues of the body, which eliminates stiffness and blockages. 

Thereafter, massaging on the body with herbal Dosha Oils, it creates the friction that helps open up the skin pores, enhance metabolism and dissolving fat tissues. Ubtan; due to its enriched ingredients, is highly advantageous for toning body muscles, reducing cellulite from the body and stimulating weight loss. 

Finally, 15 minutes of steam sauna will relive all your muscle tension and  make you feel rejuvenated and re-energized. 

My recent visit, today. I had the Kalp Ayurveda Facial (1 hours), followed by a one hour massage from a RMT (Registered massage therapist)… need I tell you that I did not drive home, my thoughtful husband, drove me there and picked me up.  I was totally on a ME day.

Thai body massage

 

Have you ever wondered about a Thai Yogic Massage?  You’ve heard about it, and thought about it, but never got around to looking it up.  Maybe you want to try Reiki, or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, maybe now while we are in the winter season, and life can get blah… you could consider doing something for yourSelf…. In every major center, smaller towns, and most communities, there are Alternative Health Care providers.

Yes, it is looking after your body, yes the very body that houses who you are, and will be your constant companion all through your journey in this lifetime.

When we look after our bodies, our mind functions better.  It really does.

Intuition – Awareness

COPD  3

Good Morning Everyone….

For days I have been grappling with my own awareness of a disease called COPD.-  As a member of the ministry I see and speak with a lot of different people from all walks of life.  As a Health Care Professional, I am faced with a lot of anxiety and stress issues over one form of illness or another.  Recently I have had to brush up on my “knowledge” of just what COPD is.  I use the term, I hear the acronym  I even use it.  BUT, not that long ago when asked exactly what the full wording was , I drew a blank.  COPD    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. 

COPD 4

I have no excuse for not remembering, over the year I have met enough people who live with and manage this challenge.  Being retired, the occassions are less,  Unless we are face to face withe the disease, or have someone in our immediate circle suffering with the disease, it fades into the background.  In the Church of Perfect Liberty, PL ministers are set up to offer personal guidance that respond to problems in our daily lives.  Through consultations you receive personal guidance tailored to your individual character and situation.  Each of us has our own unique personality, lifestyle and challenges, therefore, it is different how each of us will practice the true way, or seek happiness.

COPD 5

If you want more on COPD you can search on Google, there is a ton of information on the disease out there, most importantly IF you think you have any  symptoms of COPD, talk about it with your doctor.  Don’t delay, there is no  known cure, but it can be managed.  Intuition awareness of our own bodies, how we feel, the personal challenges, they are real, we need to speak out, share, and work with health care professionals to overcome the frustrations of dealing with challenges on our own.  Let family know, and friends, so they can share the challenge with you.  Sometimes life becomes restrictive, redirect your energy, find other ways to occupy your time that are as rewarding and fun as your other pastimes were.  Value your intuition.

Music brought COPD back into my life.  A performer whose daily life with COPD has given him the strength and dedication to share music with his friends and followers.  I hear how the disease is affecting  him when he speaks, it isn’t easy for him, yet the music he brings to the world with his genius for pulling together various artists and sounds into a symphony of good vibrations is awesome.  I have no idea what personal pain and challenges he deals with on a daily basis, but I do know his positive energy, it comes out during his sets, he weaves a spell of love through everyone who attends his shows.  This doesn’t happen .. just because… it happens because the man has connected with God, his body gives him “grief” but his soul is flying high with  a Divine love that he wants to share with the world.  To hear and appreciate his artist creations, you can contact his partner  Maryrosella (Butterflyrose) for his schedule inworld, Or for that matter  DJ Sky himself (SkyRider Sicling)

For those of you interested in Gospel, DJ Sky plays gospel for an hour on Sundays, from 11- noon SL time. (Pacific Time)  You want Blues, you want Gospel DJ Sky will serve it up to you big time.

Stroll gently through your day, breathe in the fresh air, and drink in the sweetness of life, no matter the challenges.  Love is all around us. Smile and give the love back twofold.         Oyashikiri

Buen dia, Happy Happy Wednesday!

tulips, parrot papintingA cheerful bouquet of  flowers for you dear readers.

Different flowers usually have separate meanings – flower symbolism is broadly characterized by two essentially different considerations – essence and shape..  By its nature it speaks of transition – the process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. We anticipate their beauty, we appreciate their fragrance, marvel at their delicate petals and intricate throats, veins and petals.  We even share the beauty and pleasure they give with those we love and use them to express our love and feelings.  when as Nature does, they fade and pass on, we treasure the time spent, the memory of the moment, and we move on, happy with the shared moment tucked away in our hearts.  Yellow in symbolism when it comes to flowers, usually represents the sun/sunshine – it is very yang. (I Ching)  Egyptians would put  flowers on a table as a reminder of the realities of death, and the joys and pleasures in life.  The painter of this picture, used a blue that speaks to me of the heavens.  Blue the colour of rarefied atmosphere, clear blue skies..   In symbolism, blue often represents “thinking’  (thoughts)………..

Today’s PL lesson is about becoming a better person.  If we are content with the status quo, our progress will stop, we are encouraged to always look for ways to improve and become more in tune with the Universe.  To continue our journey in life, moving forward.  Praying every day that our journey will bring us closer to a Divine State of Being.… one step at a time, mindful of the present….. let love in…. let love motivate your actions, and your thoughts.  Allow love to colour your world today.    May the blessings from above  rain down like a cleansing and refreshing spring shower to feed your soul….That the flower that is you, will be nourished and grow stronger this day……. so your beauty will shine for all the world to see.  Love is to be shared, not squandered ………S M I L E …… Oyashikiri

Happy Saturday everyone!

Daily we are given directions or a nudge by the Universe, do we see them, do we act on them, or do we simply walk on by without really experiencing the moment.  Let us let us learn to express ourselves freely.  We are able to experience the joy of being creative because we have the framework of  laws, morals and rules to follow.

PL Precept #3   God appears through One’s Self.

PL Principle #1  I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.

Interior silence – the inner stillness t which meditation/prayer leads, is where the “spirit” secretly anoints the soul and heals our deepest wounds. (John of the cross)

May God’s richest blessings continue in abundance for you today.     Oyashikiri

World Peace

World Peace

I’ve found myself wanting to be back in Japan, even though I was surrounded by people there were nooks and crannies and quiet places where the serenity of the moment was overwhelming. You literally walked away your stress, or day to day hum drum thoughts that weighed you down when your busy mind started to natter.
The goal in PL is to strive for, and achieve, World Peace.
To attain such a goal, we have to begin with our “Selves”

No one can change us, we alone can do that. I think lately I’ve let the every day world “pull my chain” or interfere too much with my daily meditations. Yesterday’s teaching on the PL calendar was.  Let’s choose to use words that are kind, polite and courteous. Kind words will bring about a kind heart.   BEAUTIFUL WORDS MAKE FOR A BEAUTIFUL SOUL

That is what resonates with me today. today’s teaching is Act with Enthusiasm.. If you put your whole heart into whatever you do, you will be able to appreciate any task at hand.take initiative in tackling your work or tasks.

Good thoughts to start the day with don’t you think.

Robert H. Schuller wrote a spiritual autobiography that he called Prayer – My Soul’s Adventure with God –
He wrote.. (Psalm 51:10-12)
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from yolur presence
And do not take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous spirit.

Blessing everyone, be God inspired today!
