Soap Free Face Routine

Here’s a million dollar question : How do your wash your face… with NO soap?

Faced with skin stripping soaps and a pressing question, Triiinity was determined to solve the riddle. We already opted for mild soaps and natural/well sourced soaps but even those can be a overly stripping of the natural oils in delicate face skin. They were even beginning to cause Triiini small dry patches and we couldn’t have that. So thus began the journey to find a gentler, more natural face washing method. After lengthy research and experimentation, we came to a combination and established a face routine that I plan to keep for a while to come.

Tools Needed:

Bentonite Clay

Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar

Face Pads/ Cotton pads

Natural oil

 

What to do?

Step 1: Bring bentonite clay and honey into a viscous paste like mixture {you may use a bowl or just mix it in your hand. For this I like to use Garner’s Garden Bentonite Clay. More honey than bentonite clay will give you the best ratio of ingredients to allow for proper spreading}

Step 2: Open your facial pores using a hot towel

Step 3: Spread mixture all over your face, massaging as you spread & allow it to sit {2 to 5 minutes is more than sufficient, though if you decide to let it sit longer it won’t hurt}

IMG_5868

Step 4: Rinse with warm water until face is fully free of substance.

Step 5: Use cotton face pad to apply apple cider vinegar to your face {this step closes your pores while adding the skin benefits of acv}

Step 6: Finish by applying a dime sized amount of natural oil to your face. {I use a homemade mixture of coconut oil, olive oil, & rosemary} . Let the oil soak in before applying any makeup.

Honey, Bentonite Clay, & ACV are 100% natural ingredients with natural detoxifying effects and amazing skin benefits! Together they make the perfect facial cleanser. Keeping the skin at the proper oil balance {especially using oils that boasts their own skin benefits} aids in anti aging effects, so once youve applied your natural oil…you’re unstoppable!

In the past few months of doing this routine, I have seen such an increase in the quality & lusterous smoothness of my skin. It’s always glowing & it feels like I’ve snapped every pore into prime position! Now I might look like a monster every morning when I was my face, but the end result is well worth it.

It’s the first new moon of the year & a great time to set 2016 goals & intentions. The Capricorn New Moon focuses our attention on our ambitions. This moon’s conjunction to Pluto & Uranus empowers us to overcome self doubt, stick to our agenda, & take on meaningful challenges in our lives. Use this energy to reaffirm any new years resolutions, goals, or plans you may have set. This moon’s energy will help you climb your ladder to success

.New Moon • Death|Transfiguration.

20160109_231526

Wearing my African bloodstone yoni egg as I embrace the energy of the new moon. She assists me, amplifying my power & establishing my vision as I set my intentions. The first new moon of the year is a powerful time for planting the seeds I desire to grow. I asked Spirit what energy I need to embrace to manifest the intentions I’ve set & this is the card I received. This card represents the end of things as previously known. Symbolizing death of the old self to pave the way for regeneration & enlightenment, it allows removal of fears by confrontation. It connotes change through transfiguration and the realization of new opportunities. There are some things that I’d been holding on to in the recesses of my mind, that the retrograde has returned to conscious thought. It can be frustrating coming face to face with emotions you’d only hoped you’d done away with for good. But it’s all a part of healing. And repressed is not the same thing as released. Dead leaves will only feed to no avail until the whole plant dies. And I’m trying to grow a garden. So tonight my job is to let go. I release what is dead. I die to be reborn. I trust the Universe to bring me the highest good. And it shall.

How are you embracing the Capricorn New Moon energy? What do you feel you need to do to manifest your intentions in the new year?

Happy New Year + First Tarot Readings of 2016

Happy New Year Spiiirits!

Can you believe its 2016?

Yesterday I pulled my first card of the new year and I’d love to share it with you guys. I have decided that I will pull a card a day, every day this year, come hell or high water. I find it to be a great way to practice my divination and get more & more in touch with my cards. I will attempt to share them with you all every day as well (via instagram or here on zee blog) but I’m asking in advance that you all bear with me. I will share as often as I can. In keeping with my new daily tarot plans, I also pulled a card for today. I will share both.

1|1|16 .{The Hot Seat}.

Hot Seat

Yesterday I asked my deck about the energy of my 2016 & what Spirit wanted to communicate to be about the year. The answer? THE HOT SEAT. Synonymous with the {Emperor} card in the traditional tarot. This card bears the number 4 signifying the deeper self rooted in firm foundations & convictions, balance & the four pillars of the Universe. This card signifies power & great responsibility, for the “Hot Seat” is the seat of the master of the Universe. Any persons prepared to take this seat has achieved adequate work and is ready for the continued work & responsibility that awaits them. This card indicates a position of authority that has been bestowed that one must make themselves equal to. Great urgency is required as decisions must be made that require inner convictions and powers of leadership. This card foretells a way through to the realization of ambitions. Meditate on the correct channeling of energy through the higher will, transforming & blending the psyche.

1|2|2016 .{Island of Jewels}.

Island of Jewels

Today, I simply asked for the guidance in relation to the energy of the day. I used my crystal wand as a pendulum to amplify my natural magick in choosing a card. Spirit’s choice today? ISLAND OF JEWELS. Synonymous with the {Star} card in traditional tarot. This card bears the number •{17}• which combines the numbers •{1}• & •{7}• together to signify the inner light of spiritual attainment through an exalted path of occultism. The Island of Jewels is perceived as being outside of the influence of time. It represents the visualization of the ideal self. Comprised of all the celestial forces that influence the world, it is understood as being not bound to the world but above it as a pure transmitter & receiver of the celestial influences.

This is a highly auspicious card as it suggest the realization of hopes & aspirations achieved through the practice of visualization & opening of the inner spiritual eye.

Connoting inspiration, insight, & spiritual breakthrough, this card is one of optimism & success. Maintain faith in your higher self. This faith in the deepest aspirations of your heart and soul shall aid you in finding expression for these desires in this world that lay the foundations for realization & illumination in the next. Meditate on the limitless possibilities of the Spirit.

——————–

I am glad to have received such auspicious messages from Spiiirit at the dawn of this new year. I am inspired & prepared to tap in and take hold of all the cosmos has to offer me this year!

Let me know if any of these cards resonate with you and the energy surrounding you this year!

Orgone Magick : Superior Life Energy

Greetings Lovers!

I’ve missed you all. But your Miiiri Muffin is back, with some crystal awesomeness! ❤

Triiin & I have had a flood of amazing crystals entering our lives lately. A couple weeks ago, we made a trek to House of Intuition and racked up on some crystalline critters during a Sunday Sale they were having. Crystal Haul coming soon for that one. I’ve received a crystal wand crafted by the hands Nebheru! (I must tell you all more about that one). Then Superior Life Energy sent Triiin and I a lovely Moonstone pendant & a power-packed Clear Quartz Orgone Pyramid.

SLE5

OMG

The Pendant & The Pyramid will be the today’s topic of discussion

First things first a brief synopsis of Orgonite.

ORGONITE – Organic fiberglass resin and inorganic metal shavings combined to produce an object that attracts etheric energy. They usually are crafted in a cone or pyramid shape. Orgonite generates Orgone energy, that acts as an environmental ionizer. They literally contain the ability to change the energy of any place they inhabit! Orgonite may contain crystal compounds or other metaphysical ingredients to aid in the process and add other healing benefits.

I have had some really powerful experiences with Orgonite. Orgone’s energetic offering is no joke!

SLE2

Superior Life Energy specializes in Orgonite crystal pieces. Every time I receive a piece from Superior Life Energy its always an energetic blessing. The pieces are beautiful, well made, and power-packed. These most recent pieces did not disappoint.

The Pendant

SLE4

This pendant consist of Clear Quartz, seashells, and Moonstone. It carries a strong feminine healing energy. I love wearing it during my moon rituals and in the moonlight in general. She definitely responds to the lunar vibes. I also wore here as my everyday pendant for a while as we got acclimated. This beauty definitely granted blessed vibes as I maneuvered throughout my day. Seashells combine with Clear Quartz and Moonstone give this beauty her power. Seashells carry the power and cleansing energy of the ocean. They contain a natural ability to dispel negative energy and bring a pure healing vibration. Not to mention the palpable conscript between the Sea’s energy & the Moon. Moonstone is a crystal truly connected to the Divine magic of the Moon. This stone is a great companion on one’s inward journey. Nicknamed the “Travelers Stone”, it grants protection on physical journeys as well, especially after dark. Gray & White Moonstone (like the stones included in this piece) sharpens psychic perception into the unseen, stimulating visions & dream work, while carrying all the energy and divine potential of the New Moon. This stone activates Kundalini energy in women while offering men increased emotional balance. Gotta love that moon power! Clear Quartz is a master healer. It’s vibration is actually neither a liquid nor a solid. It is a metaphysical wonder. A divine gift from Gaia. This is a readily programmable crystal and great in the use of healing all ailments, physical, mental, & spiritual as Clear Quartz contains a powerful ability to dispel negativity.

The Pyramid

SLE3

This pyramid is made of Clear Quartz & Seashells. Seashells bring the serene healing vibes of the Sea, along with their ability to clarify vibrations in their energy field. Clear Quartz is a master healer and quite the powerhouse. Its ability to transmute energy makes it the perfect compound for Orgonite. It is an excellent stone for bringing harmony and balance to ones environment. I have used this pyramid in meditation and it brings me much peace. I keep it on a secondary alter in my home (my other Superior Life Energy pyramid already has a spot on my main altar) and since its arrival I have definitely felt the its zen, healing vibes, and powerful balanced energy. I used this pyramid over my heart chakra during my most recent Full Moon ritual and I believe it brought some true balance to my heartspace that allowed room for wonderful things to transpire. I’m so glad to have added this metaphysical beauty to our collection!

SLE1

All of Superior Life Energy’s energetic blessings always give me joy. And organite definitely bring some much needed healing and balance to the mix. Coupled with the use of Clear Quartz, who can argue with stones that bring equilibrium, progression and healing in any facet of your life or being that may need it?

Crystals rock my socks!

Check out Superior Life Energy and their lovely Orgonite pieces! {IG: @superiorlifeenergy}

Do any of you own orgonite? How about Clear Quartz, in any fashion? Did you guys experience some of the effects these crystals boast? I’d love to hear your stories!

More rock love and metaphysical talk coming soon to your eyes and ears via Miiiri-baby. Look out for talk of crystal wands and crystal balls!

Woman Crush Wednesday: Rihanna Bares it All

Hola, Spiiirits!

At the CFDA Fashion Awards on June 2nd, Rihanna bared it all in a completely sheer crystal-net floor length gown that was custom made by designer Adam Selman. Well “bared it all” may be a little too forward…she did have a flesh tone thong on that beautiful bod. Talk about shining bright like a diamond, Rih!

rihftnblog1

rihftnblog2

Rih paid homage to the Josephine Baker era in this floor length frock, which hosted 230, 000 Swarovski crystals.

Now of course Rih’s bold, nude (or at least mostly nude) expression, has brought much backlash. (Instagram even, to my knowledge, removed her page because of it, TUH!) However, I am here to say that I am in support of this fashion choice!

First of all, Rihanna looks beautiful and her body is to D-I-E for in this dress. Second, why is it that women have to be ashamed of their bodies? These bodies (male or female) are blessings from Source, so why is it we cannot honor them as such? Rihanna is a young woman in her prime finding strength in her femininity, versus the shame that is so readily taught, and I applaud her for that. (BTW this is not the first time Rih has worn something sheer in public that exposes her breasts nor that she’s been photographed topless. So I don’t understand why this time is SO much more of a big deal than the others).

Also, I am a believer in the #freethenipple movement. It is simply the gender roles set by a patriarchal society that allow for a man to freely be topless, nipple exposed, but shame a woman for the thought of the same thing. Even though the chest scientifically contains the same visible make up. While I love clothing, I just don’t think nudity should be so frowned upon. It is after all, our original form. We are taught to be ashamed of and hide our root physical form and then we wonder why we find it hard to love ourselves.

Remember, God made the naked form. Man, made clothing. That’s all I’m saying…

BUT…I’m really curious to know you guys’ opinion on Rih’s outfit and public displays of nudity as a whole. Do you agree with Rih’s #freethenipple approach or do you think she should have covered up for the awards?

Let me know!

Connected & Inspired: Superior Life Energy

Hello & Good Day Free Spiiirits of the World.

How are you all on this lovely day?..Well it’s a beautiful day, today in SoCal. One of the few beautiful days I have had completely free for a while (for a number of reasons). With the birds chirping, the breeze blowing, and the sun high in the sky, a wave of inspiration has come over me and prompted me to write. So, here I am 🙂

Okay sooooo, raise your hands if you like crystals!

*raises hand*

If you don’t like ’em, ya truly don’t know what your missing. Do a little research and you’ll find that crystals have many physical & metaphysical properties that can be of benefit to your body, mind, and soul.

Its been a little over a month since I received two very special crystal pieces from Superior Life Energy and it’s time I gave them a full review.

The Pyramid of Contemplation & The Pendant of Creativity

The Pyramid of Contemplation: This piece is an exquisite Orgone pyramid who’s shape and contents provide much spiritual power. The pyramid boasts a combination of Agate, Green Aventurine, Blue Aventurine, Mookaite Jasper, Seashells, and Reiki Seeds. Superior Life Energy owner, LaQuan Williams named this piece for the very relaxing state that it induced when he would stare into it. In my experience with this piece, it seems to be a powerful connector to the spiritual realm. Before receiving the pyramid, I was having trouble with my dream recall. I am usually quite a dreamer and quite strong with dream recall but I had a short stint (maybe 2 months) of time where I had to go without fluoride-free toothpaste. (Thank God that’s over!) I think the temporarily increased fluoride consumption had some negative affects which manifested in my dream-life. After receiving the Pyramid, the second night I slept with it near my bed, I had an extremely powerful dream, the full contents of which I remembered impeccably the next morning. In this dream, I met an alien who is more than likely one of my spirit guides. The time spent with the alien spirit guide was such a beautiful experience and I could truly feel the all-encompassing love of God radiating from the being. I was very interested to find later, in my research of this Orgone pyramid’s contents, that the spiritual energy of Blue Aventurine helps to attune you to guidance from higher realms and begin to perceive your spiritual gifts. And Mookaite Jasper, can help connect one with ancestor spirits to give intuitive understanding. Coincidence? I think not. About 3 weeks passed and I also had a lucid dream in which not only did I have a conscious memory of another (previous) dream, realize I was dreaming at present (with one of the manifestations of my sub-conscious literally saying it), but I maintained control long enough to turn a door knob and open a door within the dream before waking up. The Pyramid of Contemplation not only restored my dream recall but amplified my dream abilities, thereby my dream experiences.

Lucy, The Pendant of Creativity: Lucy, gets her name from me. She contains Amethyst, Red Jasper, Carnelian, and Hematite I did my darnedest not to look up anything about her before I wore her. I truly wanted to see how she made me feel without any previous bias from the research and then see how that measured up with the benefits each component was supposed to provide. ( I try to make a habit of that. It provides the most true results.) I wore her out into life one day. Actually it was the first time Triiin & I visited Santee Alley. Halfway throughout the day as I was getting a feel for my pendant I realized I had been making musical beats in my head all day, writing, and being constantly inspired. Not that these aren’t things that I normally do, but i seemed to happening at an increased level. Whether it was musical ideas or ideas for Free Spiiirit or whatever bright idea came next, inspiration kept coming. I told Triiin decidedly “You know what, I feel more creative today. Yes…creative, is the feeling.” After researching, I found that Carnelian (which is actually the largest crystal component present in the pendant) stimulates creativity. From then on I decided that, for me, this would be the Pendant of Creativity. I named her Lucy after well….Lucy…and all the realms of possibility and inspiration that usually comes to one on a Lucy trip. Lucy is my little slice of LSD when sober, haha.

I would definitely recommend Superior Life Energy crystals to anyone interested in crystals for a spiritual reason. LaQuan Williams is a master at making perfectly powerful Orgonite combinations that could cure any metaphysical imbalance or ailment you might have. Ohhhh and they are such beauts too. Now thats a win-win. 😉

Gifts from the Angels: ✡ Wood Merkaba ✡

Greetings Beautiful People!

For at least the past year & a half, I have been privy to the many uses of crystals. Crystals can be used to heal on a physical and spiritual level by balancing the energy imbalances in ones aura. Crystals not only carry energy of their own but they are an amplifier of the users energy and intentions. I have been interested in the soul-healing energy of crystals ever since the knowledge of their metaphysical power and awesomeness was first presented to me. I am by no means a crystal connoisseur but I am learning more and more about individual types of crystals and their special individual uses each day.

Recently, Wood Merkaba kindly sent Triiinity & I some beautiful additions to our budding crystal collection.

wm1

(Left: Rhodonite Pendant, Right: Flourite Ring

You know, it is said by many that crystals pick where they want to go (choosing their owners and choosing when they are ready to leave them). Well when Triiin went to the Wood Merkaba store site looking for pieces, the Flourite ring, whyy this baby just opened up its link without even being clicked on. I came in the room and she showed me the site asking me (without telling me what happened) to pick the pieces that appealed to me and I picked this very piece. So we decided it was destined, the flourite ring had picked us! When we read up on the properties of flourite, we found that flourite is a multidimensional gemstone (associated with the 3rd eye & crown chakras) that cleanses & stabilizes the aura, advancing the parts of the brain that connects us to Source.  It balances and gives order to the energies removing chaos and disorder from ones environment. This awesome crystal gives clarity on situations where you need to see unbiased truth past the illusion or emotionally clouded judgement. Flourite also offers powerful healing and protection (especially on a psychic level). This was crazily spot on, in the fact that we had been thinking about getting a crystal for protection, especially against psychic manipulation, but did not know which crystal would be best. Not to mention needing clarity to make sound, unbiased decisions in our personal and business lives while ordering our environment and strengthening our connection with the I AM. Perfection.

Wood Merkaba added in another piece for me, that truly makes me feel as though she read my energies from afar. The Rhodonite pendant. Rhodonite is a stone of love which, through steady uplifting vibrations, helps one to stabilize their emotions, deepens one’s understanding, and matures one to meet life with balance and grace. It strengthens the understanding of unconditional, universal love past our concept of conventional love. It is associated with the heart chakra and increases self-love and love for all of creation.  Though it is not necessarily associated directly with the astrological sign Leo (my astrological sign & a fire sign), rhodonite is said to resonate with fire energy. Also, though I am a very loving being, I also can be as fiery in my emotions as I can be kind and altruistic. Rhodonite is here to give me more balanced emotions and increase my love for self and the world to the level it needs to be to spread love on a mass level and exact my purpose to spread positivity and peace among the Earth. Also, Rhodonite is said to help with anxiety, which at times, Triiin mildly battles with.

Jessica Miller, the angel behind Wood Merkaba, is a Certified crystal healer and makes beautiful wearable crystal pieces. It is clear that she charges, cleanses, and blesses the her crystal pieces before sending. Upon receiving these beautiful babies we could feel their fully charged, cool hum of power. When I put the copper plated flourite ring on my finger I could immediately feel powerful energy coursing around and through my finger. Talk about, WOW! Holding the Rhodonite pendant in my hand and stroking it with my finger, I could feel the energy emitting from it as well. Upon wearing the pendant out into life, I found my emotions to be more balanced in situations where I would have normally been riled. Its crazy how real the soul-healing powers of crystals, really is! I feel as though I was at least slightly more patient than normal and better at expressing love in tense situations. I am presently wearing it on a gold chain but I really want to get a copper chain for it. Copper is a great conductor of energy , the best (dare I say), which is why many crystals pieces are made with copper in, on, or, around the crystal.

As someone who does not use over-the-counter or prescription medication and wholly advocates natural methods of healing, I love using crystals as a part of a holistic healing plan for my mind, body, & spirit. These two beautiful pieces are already making wonderful additions to our budding crystal collections and I will continue to observe our progress in the areas these crystals pieces were created to aid.

Do any of you have experiences with flourite or rhodonite?? If so, share, Share, SHARE!!!
