Okay! We’re coming into the time just before the homestretch in our 40 day reboot of Pray & Clear, and this is a time when energy lags for some, and the temptation to give up is right there.

Two of my all time favorite quotes have been paired to gather. They come into my mind whenever there’s the temptation to give up. They inspires me always

The first is from W.H. Murray. The following passage is from the beginning of Murray’s The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951), and in it he quotes Goethe:

… but when I said that nothing had been done I erred in one important matter. We had definitely committed ourselves and were halfway out of our ruts. We had put down our passage money— booked a sailing to Bombay. This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:

              Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
              Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!

Sometimes I feel Spirit is so bold, it’s startling. I find myself moved to express so boldly sometimes and I am frequently uncomfortable with it, but follow my intuition anyway. I’ve learned to trust. I’ve learned to have faith. I’ve learned to not hesitate and allow the ego to come in and discourage me. The whole key to living an inspired life is to follow inspiration! Go for it!

As Wayne Dyer said, “It’s never crowded along the extra mile.” Another great piece of inspiration. My parents taught me to go the extra mile in things and I’m so glad they did. It’s especially valuable when it comes to our own self-care.

Part of my loving self-care is the products I use around the house and on my body. I like to use organic wherever possible. I like to use cleaning products that aren’t harsh for the environment. I love aromatherapy and essential oils and I do not like synthetic scents.

As A Course in Miracles tells us, everything in this world is symbolic. So, contemplating that, consider what is the symbolism when we use toxic or noxious items to clean our home or when we use skin care that’s not actually healthy. My rule for a lot of things is – if I wouldn’t eat it, it doesn’t go on my skin because anything I put on my skin is in my bloodstream in about 15 seconds and making it’s way into my vital organs. I make some exceptions because I love to have a pedicure and get my toes done – but I don’t do it as often as I used to and I don’t wear nail polish on my nails very often because it was ruining my nails.

Some people use artificially scented cleaning products and there can be a lot of chemicals in those products – if you put them on your clothes and then wear them against your skin, it’s going to get into your bloodstream.

What I did was I used up all the things I had and just began replacing them with products that were better for the earth and for my health. It felt like an act of self-care to change out the toxic products for healthier ones.

Look at the ingredients in your skin care – a lot of of skin creams actually have petroleum products in them. Petroleum products (like petroleum jelly) are for your car – not your body. Here’s a blog about getting petroleum products out of your skin care (hey, do you really want petroleum in your bloodstream? Would you eat it?)

Here’s another helpful blog about non-toxic skin care and I will give you a list of some of my favorite products and supplements – things that really work for me.

I was blessed to have found a most wonderful woman, Sanandra Black, who makes FABULOUS skin care that I’ve been using for about 15 years or so. I love Sanandra. I used to see her at many of the spiritual events I went to. That’s how I found her. She’s an absolute sweetheart and she makes wonderful organic self-care products. I asked her if she’d give us a discount and she immediately responded with a 33% discount. WOW! AND – you can use the code when you reorder, as I’m sure you will. WOWZER! Use code word PRAYER for 33% OFF. (Please note that Packages, Blue Chamomile, Sandalwood & Kombuchi Tea are not included. There’s no expiry date on it so you can use it whenever you want. Here’s her website: Seachi.com – enjoy!

BTW – my favorite product of Sanandras is this one: Seachi Creme, I purchase a queen size jar and it lasts me about a year. It’s one of the best bargains I know of!
