Sunsets, The Gateway to the Stars

DSCN7096blemish2

Aging in the twenty-first century is an interesting prospect. With so many available surgical procedures, Botox and fillers and non-invasive procedures like lasers, facials and other skin stimulating treatments, it is a wonder anyone over 50 has even a small wrinkle.
There are two sides in the aging debate; one, pull it, pluck it, tuck it, suck it, pin it, thin it, fill it, dye it and cut it. Then there are those who for financial reasons, commonsensical reasons or just plain self-contentment reasons subscribe to the notion that fighting gravity is futile and aging with grace is the road to ultimate fulfillment. I am of that mindset.
There was a time I thought that I might venture down the non-invasive path when the signs of aging had finally overtaken my face but now that I am there, on the cusp of what was once considered old, I am completely at peace with the process. I refuse to bend to society and its narcissistic need to make everyone look perfect. I refuse to look in the mirror and dislike or condemn myself. I refuse to let what society thinks turn me into a paranoid old lady wondering how people perceive me or worse, an insignificant wallflower ignored by society. I refuse to be like everyone else who thinks that by fixing their chin or eyes that no one will have a clue how old they are. I refuse to be relegated to sitting and knitting as the world around me spins.
I celebrate the last year of my fifties with glee because I survived more than I ever thought I would or could. I celebrate every gray hair as it reminds me of my old friend, the silver lining, which has shown up in my life right after every major storm and there have been so many. I celebrate every wrinkle and every smooth spot knowing that soon they will merge and all the lines of my life and every path I took will envelop my face. I celebrate the sags the bags the bum drop, the ski slopes, the liver spots and waning vision as I know it is my time to multiply and exercise what cannot be seen. I had my youthful day in the sun but sunsets are so much grander and they are the gateway to the stars.

10 Ways to Increase Your Frequency or Lower It

In a world where every single day there are worldly and local events which energetically plummet and bombard your consciousness, there is no time like the present to learn a few tips to maintain your balance. While there are many more not listed here, these are just my top ten favorites and frankly the easiest to do. Staying centered in a volatile world is not only power-enhancing but it enables you to make better decisions and perhaps to be a part of the solutions in those areas where balance is key to being effective in helping others. Obviously moderation is the key to balance as is common sense. Most people have mastered awareness on how to maintain a healthy physical body so it is not  really rocket science to learn how to maintain your spiritual body. Medical science is beginning to understand measurable frequencies within the human body which when lowered cause the body to become vulnerable to sickness and disease. The human body has both an epi-kinetic energy field but more widely known, it has an electromagnetic field. Noise, pollution, noxious fumes, negative energy or being around those who are rattled, scattered, angry or simply over-excitable can alter the harmony of your own frequencies and again when lowered, you are vulnerable to more than just physical sickness, you are vulnerable to the negative forces. Maintaining a higher frequency not only increases your light mass but it conditions your consciousness. Here are just a few ways to keep your shine beginning with those things which lower your frequency.
