It's rare that I have a Sunday off from work. So, I am just relaxing this morning, drinking my coffee and visiting with grandchildren for little bits of time on and off. Eventually, I will take a shower and do some laundry. I hope I will get around to making dish soap.

Dish soap? Yes, if you read my sisters blog, you will know that we are making homemade products. So, far I have made laundry soap, facial wipes, and baby wipes. The laundry soap I have been making since early summer. I love it and will not go back to commerical laundry products ever! My daughter makes her own stain remover and that works just like commerical brands. And for fabric softener, I use just plain old vinegar in the rinse cycle. After a run through the dryer, you don't even smell the vinegar. It has been working out well.

So, now I am on to dish soap. I have been wanting to do so for some time. Just never really had time. Renee has made it and loves it. So, I am going to try it hopefully today.

If you think that this is time consuming, you are wrong. It takes no time at all to whip up your own products. And you can feel good knowing exactly whats in them. Plus, I like to snub the commerically dependent way of life we lead these days.

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.

That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
