As I said in the post where I shared my tooth powder recipe, good health and exquisite self-care is such an important part of every smart woman’s holistic business strategy.
Because of course. Vanity has propelled me to begin many of my wellness practices. I don’t mind. Left to my own devices, I am so lazy. If vanity can get me to create new healthier habits, I’ll take it!
I chose to use unrefined virgin coconut oil, even though sesame oil is the most traditional (the idea of sesame oil makes me gag, but that’s just me). A tablespoon in the morning first thing (before brushing or drinking or eating), and then ten minutes or more of swishing it around in my mouth. Here’s the article that got me started, in case you want to read more.
Here’s what I noticed first: After a few months of almost daily oil pulling I noticed that the color of my teeth was brighter, with less staining (and I drink gunpowder green tea every day, so this is definitely a thing!).
And then! A few months later, I realized that the deep and scary constant pain deep under a molar was gone. Gone! This has made me a convert for life. I have no clue about any of the other health claims connected to oil pulling, but if they are true, I guess I will happily find out!
Let me know what you’re thinking in the comments. Blessed be!
Seems like ruptured, walled-off appendicitis can recur. Mine just did. I’m out of danger, taking the same really horrible drugs as 11 months ago, working lovingly and compassionately on my attitude, and doing everything I can to support my body, my tender heart, my emotions, and my balance, as I go through this. Thanks for all the love and patience.
The Aries New Moon that follows the Equinox is when you may feel that you have fully landed in all this season’s newness, coinciding with the ground being softened enough and warmed enough for you to be planting the first seeds of the year. Seeds in your garden, seeds in your body, seeds in your relationships, and seeds in your business.
I always consider this Aries New Moon as the last reset point of our goals and intentions for the year, the last “New Year” point. You’ve now spent a full six months looking at and experiencing different phases of “New Year” energy. (Seasonal aspects of the list that follows describe the shifts and changes in the Northern hemisphere; I always love hearing from my Australian and New Zealand readers with your take on these.)
Let me know how you feel this week’s go-go New Moon. Where are you in your journey? Are you turning a corner? Are your steps lightening?
Feel free to send a little extra love and a virtual hug. I’m on Flagyl again, yo, can already taste that lovely metallic taste. Glad I’m not alone. Drop in to the comments, let’s connect.
Join the brand-new Conscious Collaboration Facebook group! You’ll get support to grow your reach, connect with your ideal clients, and thrive in your business. It’s right here, and it’s free.
You’re asking why, right? Well…There’s no why-ing in Facebook! (See what I did there? )
There’s still plenty of ways to empower yourself to grow your reach, connect with your ideal clients, and thrive in your business using Facebook.
And I promise you, when things change on Facebook — and they will! — I will come back and edit this post to keep it current for you.
When you are on your business page, and you are about to post something, look for the little thumbnail and down arrow at the top right of the post box. There you can switch identities as you like.
Here’s what I’m hearing and I’m distilling it for you to keep it simple, and keep in mind, this could change at any time.
Have I left anything out? Please tell me. I did this today running a fever, but I wanted to get this to you!
Please talk to me in the comments. Do you have questions? Is anything unclear? I am here; bring it!
A time to look behind at the last few weeks, or months, and acknowledge what has come to pass, and then pivot and look ahead and declare what you are called to create, nurture, grow, and manifest now.
Softly open, that is. We will be fully operational by Monday. But you may join any time you like! It’s free, and it’s going to be inspiring and nurturing. Click here or on the image to find us. And then just click the Join Group button.
The Conscious Collaboration Facebook group is a place where women with heart and soul intentionally help each other to expand our reach, connect with our ideal clients, and thrive in our businesses. We are a diverse group of women changemakers, healers, and business owners who are gathering to intentionally help each other…
“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.” ― Anthon St. Maarten
“The awakening moon”
Set some intentions about your connections in and for your business. The Libra Moon reminds you that your partnerships and relationships are always up for evaluation and re-evaluation. Are you getting fed? Are you able to stay in balance? What needs to be changed? What might need to be released? [Edited to fix the date typo; the Full Moon is Saturday, not Friday. This kind of thing happens to me when Mercury is direct! Guess I’m human.]
Plant your flag. Claim your sovereignty. Stand tall as a deity in jeans. Or in my case today, in yoga pants. Jeans just don’t cut it when I’m lifting at the gym.
Let me know how this Moon is whispering to you. I’d love to hear what you are thinking and feeling in the comments.
Welcome Conscious Collaborator! We are a diverse group of women changemakers, healers, and business owners who are gathering to intentionally help each other to…

If you find yourself getting trapped in writing, re-writing, planning, replanning, delaying launch dates, and then delaying them again — your inner perfectionist may be holding you back. So far back that you wonder if you’ll ever get what you know you are meant to offer out of your head and into the hands, head, and heart of the people you are here to help.
I’m getting ready to launch a new part of the #ShareYourMagic movement called Conscious Collaboration. (The “Let’s-do this!” announcement with live links is coming, as soon as everything is ready, hopefully in a week — I have let go of perfectionism, just need to get the many pieces in place!).
I’ve written an eBook, and I’m offering a Facebook group as well where we can learn from each other and support each other in our social networking. This is very exciting! And yet, I find myself a full month behind my original launch date. Here’s what I’ve noticed:
The ready-set-go model can keep you stuck in perfectionism paralysis. You prepare (ready), and tweak and tweak and edit and proofread and tweak some more (set, set, set, set, set….), until you finally Go! And then you think it should be done and done, and nevermore revisited, or reset. Takes forever, and leaves you stuck.
Lather-rinse-repeat. This keeps your work living, breathing, dynamic, and responsive. Over time your resets will get spaced farther apart. And you will get better, quicker, and more nimble at creation and launching.
What about you? What have you learned? Please share your wisdom and questions in the comments. Blessed be!
This Pluto-Uranus square invites you to choose how we are going to live now, and for the rest of your life. This invitation can manifest in a number of ways.
According to one of the articles I read while preparing to write this for you, it seems to be a fact that this is the only time in 5,000 years that there has a been a Solar Eclipse at 29º Pisces. If this is true, we may be moving from a long cycle into a new one. Do you feel urgency to get it done? Even if what will come of your beautiful actions is shrouded in mystery?
What if the new cycle is all about women’s equality with men? What if the bold, audacious expression of your Divine Feminine helps every man’s feminine side bloom? Take ownership of your own mission and methods, be who you truly are, and let your light shine. Listen to the whispers of your heart, let it guide and empower you, express yourself, and be of beautiful service!
I’d love to know. Please talk to me in the comments. Blessed be!
