5 Important Basics: Home Décor & Simplifying Your Life

Reading Time: 2 minutes It’s the final week of my series. This week, I’ll share the most important lessons I’ve learned from years of research and observing—having a deep curiosity about Nature never hurts…

Do You Suffer From Confirmation Bias?

Reading Time: 4 minutes Without external influences of the media or other forms of drama, the eagle continued building. It gave me hope and realigned my focus. Build… this is all temporary. I continued thinking about the future and the solution to the temporary pain humanity is facing:

  • We are not prepared for a worldwide health crisis. Our comorbidities are staggering, and our finances are a mess. We don’t know what our “normal” body feels like, so how do we know if warmth is a hot flash or fever? How do we know the headache isn’t from seasonal allergies? Is your coughing and shortness of breath normal asthma or a symptom of the virus?
  • We can survive with less than we think. Despite the hoarding we saw (or in spite of it), it’s clear we can survive on less “stuff.” I hope you learned to make do with less and if not, why not?
  • We’re easily distracted unless we have bigger goals than what’s on the news or social media (SM). As I mentioned, I avoided SM and most emails for the past 5 months. Unless an email was a trusted source on boosting my immunity, building financial stability or a business, or offered an alternative viewpoint to what coworkers were discussing (AKA translating the news for me), I avoided external contact. I’m not a conspiracy theorist nor superhuman. I just know the negative effects of following the corrupted agenda of mainstream media.
  • Progressive businesses always find alternate and new ways to share and connect with their tribes. I’ve seen incredible changes in business structures of friends, and new businesses emerge. To all of you making waves and moving forward, thank you. <3
  • Society is a fragile illusion. This is an unsavory lesson I’ve accepted over the last few months. We’re watching as humanity collapses in front of us. We’re a nation of Karen’s and SM platforms censoring alternative, valid scientific evidence. As I heard today, when have you ever heard of a drug becoming as controversial as Hydroxychloroquine?

    I’ve studied science and natural healing for over 20 years. I’ve never seen a single drug have such controversy; nor a nation so divided about whether we should open schools, wear masks, defund police, social distance, open businesses, or focus on race this much. I never imagined gyms and fitness studios would have to risk fines for doing their job of keeping us healthy. #DeFundTheMedia

Real Heal Original Tattoo Aftercare/All-Purpose Salve

Reading Time: 2 minutes Within the first year of releasing Real Heal in the tattoo aftercare market, I received unexpected feedback. While I knew it worked as a fantastic healing agent for cuts and chapped lips, clients mentioned its ability to speed healing for diaper rash, burns, runner’s chaffing, insect bites, and much more. Recently, a friend texted me about a burn; she wanted to know which product of mine worked best.

While NovE/Real Heal Jell-E is a great treatment for calming the skin, I advised her to use the Real Heal Original/All-Purpose Salve she had on hand. Here’s her journey, unedited:

Music as Motivation?

Reading Time: 5 minutes We all listen to music while exercising to get us going… why not use it as fuel for other passions? Why not find songs that align with your core values?

Emoto proved molecules are altered by music; restaurants provide music as an aspect of ambiance, as do retail stores. If you’ve attended a live class of mine, you know I always play ambient music in the background. It helps you focus, calms all of us, and makes us all smarter. 🙂


I teach mindfulness about what you listen to when you cook, when you’re at work, and especially when you’re driving.


While most commutes are spent listening to classical music, there are “those mornings” I need uplifting, inspiration, or drivea reminder of why I’m here. On those mornings, there are 3 songs I play back to back (I have a short commute!); I share them with you below, along with one of my favorite musical social commentaries.

The lyrics are below, but it’s music, so the point is to listen to the melody and the vocal expression. Use the written lyrics to understand what they’re saying, especially in the Thievery Corporation song.

These are rock tunes (Thievery is an electronic/world fusion band)—make sure your volume’s appropriate for your location. 😉

My 5 Favorite Must-Have Recipes

Reading Time: 3 minutes I know how easy it is to fall off the wagon and I know how crappy it feels when I do. To avoid that, these are “required” foods in our house. These recipes help us stay on track by giving us quick dinner options during those moments of “screw it!” weakness.

The True Cost of Illness

Reading Time: 10 minutes I’ve read countless stories of near-death recoveries, improved health at 70-years of age or more, and none of these are wealthy people with access to unlimited medical advances. We scoff at the simplicity of their recovery: eat more plants, sleep 7 or more hours, meditate, exercise 15 minutes daily, chase your crazy passions, and surround yourself with people who you love, admire, and who inspire you.

When I have heart-to-heart conversations with people about their level of health, the conversation turns to hopelessness, apathy, and a lack of motivation. Why? Because “healthy food doesn’t agree with me,” “I like my junk food too much,” “What does it matter? I’m 55, 70 years old (insert any age), and can’t change… what’s the point of trying?” “I want to enjoy my food,” or “I don’t want to give up sweets. It’s not like I’m looking for a new spouse, anyway.”

I ask again… “why ‘suffer’ to be healthy?” Because these people are on medication, routinely visit the doctor, are on disability, and can’t walk far, nor lift over 15 pounds. I hate watching helplessly, knowing how their family is suffering as a result of their false beliefs.
