Body of a Goddess: Goddess Body Wellness

Greetings, Dear Spiiirits!

Those of you who follow me on my various social media know that I have been promising a review on the holistic products Triiin & I received from Goddess Body! Now the time has finally come for me to give you guys my full and honest assessment.

But first a little intro to Goddess Body…

Goddess Body Wellness is a brand of holistic health & beauty products created by Goddess Angela Elizabeth. Angela Elizabeth is a Master Herbalist, Holistic Health Practitioner, & Spiritual Advisor with a Masters of Science in Biology. Through her Goddess Body brand, she offers herbal teas & remedies, natural skin & haircare products, plant based nutrition and holistic health regimens.

True to her holistic roots, her products are all-natural, vegan products.

The Goddess Body products that were sent into our home by the lovely Angela Elizabeth were the CAS Toning Balm & the Yoni Oil.

CAS Toning Balm: The CAS Toning Balm is a blend that clears and smooths skin, targeting cellulite, fatty deposits. The CAS in name stands for Coffee, Aloe, & Shea. The topical caffeine from the coffee widens blood vessels, improving circulation and the removal of toxins, fluid, and fat. Aloe is renown for its amazing skin moisturizing, tightening, and regenerative properties. Vitamin A & E dense shea butter is a superb moisturizer with healing properties for skin and hair. So knowing that these are the 3 main ingredients, you already know that this concoction is primed for greatness…and it did not disappoint! The product is packaged into a glass container. You get a pretty sizable amount of product, especially when you take into account the consistency which is thick but spreads easily (and doesn’t take a lot of product to cover a pretty good amount of space). The balm smells delicious giving the wearer a light citrus scent. Due to all the natural oils, the balm is oily on your skin if over applied, so be careful (but like I said you don’t need too much). Immediately after application, my skin felt soft and supple and remained that way throughout the entire day. After no more than a week of using this product daily, I noticed an increased natural sheen and glow to my skin. This amplified natural sheen and glow remained even on days when I skipped using the product. Though I don’t have a ton of marks and blemishes, I did notice the marks I do have begin to substantially lighten to blend more and more with my skin. I absolutely love this balm!

Yoni Oil: Yoni is the Sanskrit word for Divine Passage, Vagina, Womb, Sacred Temple…you get the picture. It’s our blessed and sacred lady bits, Goddesses, and yoni oil is a prime holistic asset for keeping the precious vagina working to Goddess-standard. Yoni oil contains a combination of oils such as tea tree oil and neem oil as well as delicious herbs lemongrass and sage. These oils and herbs (as well as the numerous others present in the blend) combine to create the perfect potion for feminine yoni health. The oil has the capability to restore balance, acting as an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal antidote. The combo also strengthens and tones the vaginal walls while encouraging healthy lubrication as well. It also can be used as a healthy natural lube, itself. With daily application, I observed a notable increase in the lubrication and strength of my own yoni since beginning to use this oil back in May. I feel that the increase in vaginal strength has caused my menstrual cycle to complete more quickly (since I can expel more at once). The oil, as well as healthy eating practices, has also decreased to the number of painful days in my cycle to one. Lastly it has a delicious lemongrass-y scent and can be effectively used on, not only your yoni, but your skin & hair as well. I haven’t actually tried the oil on my hair yet, but the anti-bacterial properties work wonderfully on skin (especially when a pimple surfaces up! It’ll get rid of that sucker in a flash). Triiin has pretty sensitive face skin when it comes to which products she can use and she swears by this oil for her face! This is definitely a new staple product in our lives.

These worked out so phenomenally, I can’t wait to try more Goddess Body products! I’d definitely recommend the CAS Toning Balm and the Yoni Oil to any woman ready to channel her inner Goddess! (Plus the holistic products are universally good for skin and hair, so men you can use them too!)

OOTD: Independent Soul

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” – Charlotte Brontë

Hello Spiiirits! I hope you had a marvelous 4th of July/4th of July Weekend. Though I’m not big on the America-centric holiday, I know I did. Nothing like a little celebration with friends &/or family to kick off the month right? Speaking of kicking off the month can you believe we have now entered the 7th month of 2014???  Summer is in full swing and we are more than halfway through the year! Crazy. But I couldn’t be more thankful.

At any rate, I wanted to share my 4th of July outfit with you lovely spiiirits!  Triiin & I were invited by our lovely friends Ash & Kwith to enjoy some backyard chillin’ & grillin’. We had the most delicious grilled veggies and grilled seafood (salmon, lobster, & shrimp to boot!). And the night was topped with a wicked fireworks show from an amazing view. Great day 🙂

Crotchet Top: Thrifted, Burgundy Bandeau: Shasa, Skirt: F21, Scarf (for turban): Walmart, Pinstripe Sneakers: Target, Choker: Bombay Fashions, Pyramid Studs: F21, Crossbody Bag: A street vendor we call “Rasta Man” :), Mixed Metal Bracelet: Glitter, Rings (Snake Ring, Coral “crystal ball” Ring, & Earth Tone Oil Paint Ring): Gift + Beauty Supply, Cat-Eye Sunglasses: Santee Alley

The daytime was HOTTTTTTTTT, so I aimed to wear an outfit that could handle the heat, while being stylish & comfortable. No matter how hot in the day, LA tends to cool off substantially at night, so I brought along a yellow cardigan to keep me warm when it got cool out.

As you can see by some of the pictures, Triiin’s outfit was fab & killin’ it, also! If you want details to Triiin’s outfit, just let me know in the comments below! Also…we sell cute custom crops like the one she is wearing at FreeSpiiirit. Email for inquiries.

Connected & Inspired: Superior Life Energy

sleblog

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. 😉

Namaste, Folks!

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!!!

OOTD: Updo’s & Thrifted Pleasantries

An Outfit of the Day from a couple days ago…

Actually, it was last Thursday, which was an awesome day for a lot of reasons. It was my last day of Summer session I, my mommie and grammie came out to visit me, and they packed me down with a house full of groceries. I also got a job on Thursday for which I had to go in and do paperwork. As I watch my days’ progressions, it just amazing to see how many blessings God lays in my path. Can’t be anything but thankful.

Every piece of this outfit (minus the studs & rings) was thrifted at some point. Even the necklace, which was borrowed, is a vintage gold piece that was picked up in a thrift store. Ahh, I love my thrifty days. They give life to my inner frugal fashionista! The updo was a quick, easy twist on a simple hairstyle. If you guys want a tutorial, just let me know.
