There's a Song for That // 1980's Millenials



It's that time again, FRIDAY. TGIF! Lately there has been an obsession with bashing millenials but hey, the baby boomers raised us and spoiled us rotten so blame them! I'm an 80's baby so today's song, "80's Baby" by Trumaine Lamar will have you jamming and reminiscing too. If you aren't an 80's baby, it will make you wish that you were one! Check it out and I'm wishing you all a great weekend!

More quality and fun content is on the way. As always, thank you for rocking with me over all the 8 years that this blog has been around, grown and evolved. The best is still yet to come!

Words of Wisdom Wednesdays



Another new feature!!! On Wednesdays (not every Wednesday necessarily), get a dose of curated wise words from various sources, which will always be listed if the source is known, and from yours truly sometimes. Let's get into today's wise words:



Where we start doesn't have to be where we finish but in order to finish, we have to start! The right time is always right now. Start now and the path will appear before you brick by brick. We are in the last 3 months of this year and like our oracle reading for this month said, the time is now to start sowing our seeds of desires and intentions.

There's a Song for That // Discouraged



We all know how healing and amazing that music is. One of the many reasons why I love music is because there is a song that captures and/or explains every human emotion in life and I thought it would be fun to throw out moods and share songs that are about them or are an answer to them. There's a Song for That posts will be on Fridays (not every Friday necessarily). Now, onto the new feature....

The mood: Discouraged

Tamanu Oil for First Aid



Yesterday while bringing groceries in the house, I discovered a cut on my finger. These incidences are often funny to me because I don't know how long ago I got the cut or how I got the cut, I never feel the cut or any pain until I finally notice it and then all the sudden; all the feelings and sensations of a cut appear out of nowhere. I know I can't be the only person that this happens to.

Upon discovering the cut, I immediately rinsed my finger with water and then applied hydrogen peroxide. Before putting on a band aid, I put a little tamanu oil on the cut because research has shown the oil to be antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and helpful in accelerating the healthy healing of minor cuts and wounds. It's great for helping creating an optimal environment for skin to regnerate well, so it also great for lightening (I didn't say vanishing them, although depending on the severity, it possible can lighten them significantly) scars and blemishes on the face and skin.

Native Spirit Oracle Card Reading for October 2016

Native Spirit Oracle cards for our October 2016 reading

The month is almost over; man, did it go by fast! It was exceptionally busy for me with great things that I will share soon enough. Because this month was exponentially busy, I didn't do an oracle reading for September so the beginning of October's oracle reading is a one card pull to summarize this month and what to keep in mind for what is left of it.


Native Spirit Oracle card reading for 
September 2016.
Check out the audio below to learn what
this card means.




This October, Native Spirit encourages us to start thinking about how we want to finish out this year and what we want for next year and to start sowing our seeds for next year's harvest. 

For more details on this message and the other messages that came up for the month of October, check out the reading below.




If you have questions, you can leave them in the comments and/or if you'd like your own personal reading, you can email me at milan.n.staples@gmail.com.

Self Care Spa /// Relaxing Detox Foot Soak


As busy and fast paced as our 21st century lives are, we often don't slow down until we catch a cold/flu or fall ill some other kind of way. 

We have to be deliberate about making time for self care and rejuvenation. Self care often benefits our physical health but is also great for our internal and mental/spiritual health and livelihood. Last month I created an initiative for myself called "Self Care Sundays". On Sundays, when I can, I do something relaxing for myself.

Nose Piercing or Nah?

{Image Source}


About two years ago, a small desire arose to get my nose pierced and then it dissipated until the desire evaporated. Or so I thought. 

Fast forward to last week and the small desire has popped back up like a good friend you lost touch with. I think nose piercings are such a pretty way to adorn the face and look great on women. It's been a while since I pierced anything; the last piercing was my belly button over ten years ago and after all this time I've forgotten what even that felt like. I have a fairly high threshold for pain so it seems like this wouldn't be anymore painful than a belly button piercing or ear piercing, right? It might go down this summer. Summer '16, man- it's going to be a fun one!

Any readers out there with their nose pierced? If so, how much did it hurt and what was after care and healing like? Anyone planning on getting something else pierced? If so, share!

Native Spirit Oracle Card Reading for June 2016

Our Native Spirit Oracle card reading for the month of June 2016


New feature on here! 


Each month I, Milan, will do an oracle card reading for messages and guidance for us to keep in mind each month. I really like oracle cards because they give great guidance that helps us get closer to and attain our desires and they always remind us that we are always able. This month's reading, the Native Spirit Oracle Deck by Denise Linn was used and was a 3-card pull. The cards give us guidance on the month's theme, emotional challenge and overall advice. Listen below for what the native spirits are telling us for this month and follow us on SnapChat, AGrlCanMAC, for daily or weekly one card, oracle deck, pulls for daily and/or weekly messages. If you are interested in a personal oracle card reading, please email me at milan.n.staples@gmail.com .



Wishing you a great month of June and you can expect regular content again starting this month and the Tour de l'Afrique series is still on and will be continued throughout the rest of the year.

Note. My oracle card readings are NOT tied to any religion. They are spiritual and intuitive readings and anyone of any faith can take something away from the messages.
