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. As always, the oracle readings are not specific to or aimed at any religious faith. Anyone from any background can find these messages helpful and encouraging along their journey. Wishing everyone a great rest of this month and an amazing October.

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.
