Debbie I'm sorry you had to go so soon...

You were a Earth Angel. Even to the end. Four days before your passing saying wise quips, and wanting me to know live in the moment. You touched so many, stayed so positive and busy. Like you knew you had limited time. You were a inspiration to everyone you meet. You never knew a stranger. You posted luv and positivity on your Facebook feed even whe cancer came back with a vengeance.

There will never be another you. I luv you and the world is a little sadder without you.
dedicate this song to you. My sweet Angel 1960's Beach Boy Video

The Warmth of the Sun Beach Boys

What good is the dawn that grows into day
The sunset at night or living this way
For I have the warmth of the sun, within me at night
(Warmth of the sun, within me at night)
The love of my life she left me one day
I cried when she said, "I don't feel the same way"
Still I have the warmth of the sun, within me tonight
(Warmth of the sun, within me tonight)
I'll dreams of her arms and though they're not real
Just like she's still there the way that I feel
My love like the warmth of the sun, it won't ever die
(Warmth of the sun, it won't ever die)

You are my warmth of the sun. I Luv U •Shanti

Fall Into them Seasonal Changes

I'm Free Falling into Autumn! I luvvvv this time of year! It's the small weather changes in Florida. Not drastic at all....

But... I'm from up north. My internal clock notifies my brain and it's Fall in my heart and soul. Even after 20+ year's of being in Florida.

I've got some fresh goals and fresh perspective. And I'm moving in a new direction. Positivity is filling my life and starting to brim over.

Diet Changes:
●2 to 3 shots of Wheatgrass a day.
●EmergenC 2 x a day.
●Vegan (Almost)
●Cut way back on Gluten
●Cut way back on sweets
●Juicing 3 to 4 times a week
Results so far? Tummy pain getting better, energy building up and mind and heart clearing up. I'm planning on another round of colonics *been years* soon.

Spiritual Changes:
●Child's Pose daily first thing with prayers.
●Louise Hay's Feeling Fine Affirmations 3 to 4 times a week.
●Take online class Be a Certified Angel Reader.

Physical Changes:
●Letting my nails grow with acrylic overlay. Done in Pink and whites.
●Getting regular pedicures. *instead of doing them myself.
●Partial Highlights every 6 to 8 weeks.
●Pilates 3 to 4 times a week.

Wardrobe Changes:
●Fall colors. maroon, black, forest green. More goldtone accessories.
●Splurged on Roxy linen pants in white and maroon.
●Bright outfits less and less.
●Sam Elderman flat sandals in silver, gold and ethic.

Reading Changes:
● Jackie, Ethel and Joan the Women of Camelot. Get it here
●Fatal Charms and Other Tales of Today by Dominick Dunne Get it here
●Madness under the Royal Palms. Get it here
I guess you could say I luv anything about Non Fiction Scandalous History, especially in Florida!

Ok, some of these changes seem very superficial. Well, maybe they are. But my outsides help me define my insides. And for me to take care of myself on the outside Is a huge step in self care and love. Better I take care of me the better I feel about me. And to be of optimum assistance to others I must put myself first.

for me Fall is starting to feel like more reading, less scurrying about. Tea and Pintrest. Fall jewelry designs with a deep jewel tone feel. Organizing, cleaning closets and donating. Yoga at home. Meditation group. Do more personal Angel readings. Start a Craft Circle. More Zebra in my home mixed with hot pink and red.

But really Autumn for me will be a time to reflect, renew and re invent myself. While helping and being of service to as many people I possible can. But to not forget I must take care of me first and foremost. And that's the most valuable lesson I can ever learn. And keep relearning!

Took A Break. Much Needed!

It's been quite awhile since I have posted. I've been so busy in my life that I had to prioritize and give up a few things. As with everyone there is a season. Now a new season, literally and figuratively!

Fall!!! Ok not so much in New Smyrna Beach area yet, but I sense it's coming! I'm excited! Cause it means for me I'll be slowing down a bit and cre8ting more, relaxing a bit and sipping teas and reading a spell!!!!

This was my view driving home from worky the other day. Around 7pm. The Florida fall sky!

With this change of season is a internal change for me. I had a 3 month astrology chart done and it says I'm in for transformational changes. Like shake up your world changes! Hold on tight changes. So I'm preparing myself as well as anyone can. More prayer and meditation, change of diet, more positive input.

I've been using my drive time to worky (30 minutes each way) to listen to Louise Hay's Feeling Fine Affirmations. I luv Louise. And Hay House. What a amazing woman. Acceptance is the key, on all levels for me. And truly I am re learning to embrace it. -Luv Shanti
