Memorial Day Weekend Thoughts

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. As the Memorial Day weekend approaches and the notices for that the flags at Arlington are being put out…my thoughts turn more and more to those I served with, those who inspired me to serve, and to those whose journey here on earth has gone to where I have yet to go.

This time for me, is not about the politics, the “should we have” or “shouldn’t we have”. Instead, I try to not dwell on the things that happened but rather on the people that I went through it with. I remember their faces, their smiles, their stories. I let that inspire me as the other things I carry from that time is always there, sometimes weighing heavier than others. I know dwelling on the things I cannot change is not helpful nor healthy, so instead I do my best (and it doesn’t always work) to take what I learned from those fellow service members, their families, their friends, and let that inspire me to ensure my outlook is not clouded; that I continue to learn, and continue to help if I can. I may no longer be on active duty but I feel as if I never have truly gone off duty.

Forever on watch and doing my best to put forth the best qualities of humanity, decency, patience, strength, and spirit in those that served with me and those we helped while serving. For I have seen joy in the darkest of times; humanity & helping in times where others would have crumbled under the weight of tragedy….In memory of all, whether here or traveled onward…I carry you with me…always, until we meet again.

BB! –Liza M.

Your body, your spirit, your treatments….

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I normally try to take Monday’s off…but I came across something last night that told me that at least what I say to people is not something unique and said by those much more qualified in Oriental Medicine than myself.

I am a constant student, forever learning about what is possible, what is available, and what it is that you may need.

I have a deep desire to help as I know how difficult it is to live life with pain, anxiety, depression, loss of connection, and even without hope.

I cannot help myself…I’m constantly searching for answers or for ways to help make life a little easier on myself and others. That’s why I stock the things I do and I don’t give up easily.

I had the same desire to help, to have an idea about a possibility, even during my time in the military and government service. It is an essential part of me that I cannot deny, so, in doing some research to try to help a friend with her pain from debilitating Cancer, I came across a story with a quote I had to share with you.

At least now I know that my thoughts on my supplements, teas, essential oil mixtures, gemstone jewelry is not unique and that the path I feel compelled to take does not have to be an absence of knowledge but rather an acceptance that not all knowledge or responses are yet known…your body and its responses are their own so we must keep looking for we do not know yet what we may find.

BB! Thanks for listening. Wishing you all much love and luck on your paths. With a raised mug–Liza M.

Beltane – Time to Turn the Wheel

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. Beltane begins tonight and I hope those of you that celebrate it do so well. Renewal of spirit is how I view Beltane. The wheel in the photo is mine, and at each change I do turn this wheel so it’s now time to do so again.

I see the earth renewing around me so it is time to renew the energies surrounding me. Please don’t take my graphic as all inclusive, but research and choose your tools that are appropriate for you. Incense types, gemstones, essential oils, fire holders etc….are all very personal and the response your energy & spirit have to them mean much more than what may work for others or what has been used in the past.

I will be using my Nepali Butter Cupper lamp in memory of those I lost in the Nepal Earthquake as well as to those others that have passed through some violent nature lately. I will switch to one of my Plumeria candles later to tap into a very personal place that holds great sentiment for me to try to help my spirit renew.

Best of luck to you all tonight & I hope this time is of great benefit to you.

Brightest of Blessings to you and yours. With a raised mug–Liza M.

Supporting Nepal

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. The earthquake & damage in Nepal does affect me.

I chose Nepali hand-crafted items as my first cultural exposure focus for the store because of the people & their generosity; their creative spirits & how very different they are in terms of what is valued & what is not compared to others I had at that time in my own life.

What they create & the ease at which they did them was enthralling…beauty is in everything if you take the time to see it. Laughter came easy as did a smile, so for the next week at least if not more, anything my store sells, a percentage will go to support the rebuilding effort.

I can only hope that those I know there made it through, if not, I wish them a safe journey. There is always death & tragedies ….so support is always needed, but since I have the Nepali hand crafted items around me…I need to pay homage to them at this time.

Brightest of Blessings to you and yours. With a raised mug–Liza M.

Be Impactful

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. The past week has been a bit “strange” for me but in a good way. I have met many individuals lately in search of things…whether it is a way to find balance, treat some health concerns, or even dealing with spiritual energies.

I have found that by sharing my own experiences with them has allowed them to feel more at ease with what is happening with them. I always share what tricks I use to help especially with health concerns but also on my point of view on certain things that people can hold onto. Whether it is a lack of a positive relationship, aging, not achieving things that most people may consider standard (i.e. children, career, etc…)

Not everyone has the same path to travel or achieve the same milestones that others do in their lives. I just remind those people that there is a way to look at things & that getting different perspectives can change their whole outlook on a situation.

By listening & helping one another during difficulties you may find that you’ve given that key piece of a puzzle that allows someone to avoid a mishap you’ve experienced or helps them let go of something they’ve held onto that was weighing them down. I also found this to be beneficial to myself as if I can give the advice, I also need to follow it…as well as hear what they have to say as it may help me with my own path.

Help one another…sometimes what you say will impact them in ways you never even know….and don’t be discouraged if they still decide to take a more difficult road for some of us need to “learn” through experience as we are not ready to skip that step.

BB! Wishing you all much love and luck on your paths. With a raised mug–Liza M.

Galbanum

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I listed my call-out for my locals to let me know what their essential oil requests are for this week as I will be re-ordering via Facebook but I also wanted to let you know about one of the new incoming essential oils I will be stocking…it’s called Galbanum and I am eager to try it to see if it can help me (and others) with muscle spasms & arthritic pain. Plus, I also admit, the fact that it can help keep ants, roaches, & more insects at bay is a definite perk….fire ants inside really…suck. I hope you enjoy the information and be sure to follow on Facebook for more callouts (incense will be soon too) to make sure I try to get in the items you have been looking for.

Mind Fog

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I am still been so busy & wearing myself out that mind fog, exhaustion and overall “wth” has been setting in. I am sorry I haven’t posted anything other than tidbits on Facebook but I didn’t want to go to long without getting to my wordpressers….so at least for today, here are some of my tips on how I deal with my “mind fog” and here is to hoping next weeks brain draining “tax” visit is much less painful than I’m expecting.

My Chakra Tea Results

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I have been so busy…so excuse the ramble that will follow. I have been wearing myself out with finally setting up a permanent booth as I can no longer handle the load/unload each weekend…yes my back & body forced me to make the move as well as other things…been an “oi vay” few weeks.

I do have many health issues and so I need to be careful about over-doing it. Well, I decided that perhaps I needed to give my Chakra tea a try. I had wanted to try it with my first test batch but I sold out before I could give it a try myself. I thought I’d share my Day 1 (yesterday) results with you.

I was surprised by the results & how much I could accomplish yesterday after drinking it. I wasn’t that shocked at getting a headache after drinking the first cup (yes, went for the 3rd eye & spirit area first as I knew it was my most blocked) but it did lessen and figure it won’t be as bad when I do it again today.

Yes, I plan to drink the full box…and even have the internal debate going about getting just some of the specific blends now in on top of the assortment pack as I’m sure I’d drink certain chakra’s more than the others.
