You are the Architect of Your Life !

You can Improve every part of your Life  with your Thoughts! Or  you can destroy your Life with your thoughts. It’s important to remember that you have the power to create the Physical and Emotional Health that you desire by paying attention to your Thoughts. Your Thoughts are very powerful! I have always believed that you can change your Life by becoming aware of your thoughts, embracing Positive Thoughts and letting go of the Negative ones. And although it is true that you can’t control everything that happens to you, you can control your reaction to it. And that has an impact on your Health and Well Being.

Recently I have been reading a Book by Dr Caroline Leaf called “Switch on your Brain” and I wanted to share with you some of the information that I thought was fascinating.
The Book refers to the Mind Body Connection and how our thoughts directly affect our Physical Well Being.

~ Research shows that 75-98% of mental , physical and behavioral health comes from one’s thought life.
~ DNA actually changes shape according to our thoughts.
~ Research* shows that thinking and feeling anger, fear and frustration caused DNA to change shape.
~ Due to our thoughts and feelings the DNA responded by tightening up and becoming shorter, and switching off DNA codes which reduced the Quality of Expression.

“Quality of Expression” means how well our DNA does what it’s supposed to do and relates to which genes are turned on and off and how they well they work. All of that, in part, depends on our thoughts…   So when we say we feel shut down by Negative Emotions it kind of makes sense.
~ Negative Thoughts lead to Stress which affects the Body’s ability to Heal itself.
~ This can all be reversed by Positive Thoughts of Love, Joy and Gratitude.Becoming aware of our Negative Thoughts is the first step.  When you become aware of a Negative Thought, ask yourself if you can let go of it or reframe it. Sometimes looking for the Positive in any situation helps. Remembering things that you cause you to feel gratitude can also help you change that Negative pattern of thinking.  It’s very important to notice when you are engaging in Negative Self Talk or holding onto Negative feelings.  Just tell yourself to “Stop” and think of something that makes you happy or engage in Positive Self Talk…whether you believe it 100% or not. Positive Self Talk can be something simple  like thinking ” Everything is OK, everything is Fine.”  or  ” I am thankful for all of my Blessings.”  Positive Self Talk is very Powerful! And remember that giving Negative Energy to any situation, never helps and it can make you sick in both Mind and Body.

This also relates to messages that we give to ourselves… like…” I’m not very Sensuous.” Thinking of yourself as a Sensuous Person is all it takes to begin  to change that mindset…

For other Sensuous Thoughts and Daily Sensuous Activities… refer to my Book ” Be Your Own Sensuous Life Coach” available from Amazon.com

And remember …  you are the Architect of your Life !

Create A Sensuous Bedtime Routine!

img_20160205_233906004.jpgA good nights sleep is essential to being a Sensuous Woman… And for many of us Sleeping can be a challenge at times. For others it can become a Lifelong pursuit to have a great night’s sleep…

In my Book, “Be Your Own Sensuous Life Coach” you will find a page called “Sleep and the Sensuous Woman”  which will give you lots of suggestions of how to get better sleep.  I also shared that page approximately one year ago in this Blog… You can scroll down and find it if you want!

As we all know, sleep can be disrupted for so many reasons it would be impossible to list all of them here. But whatever the reason that you have trouble sleeping, there is one thing that you can absolutely do about it… Create A Sensuous Bedtime Routine!

Sensuous Bedtime Routines

A Sensuous Bedtime Routine can include just about anything that you want to do every night before you go to bed. Being consistent with a Bedtime Routine often helps us sleep more deeply.

A Sensuous Bath

Sensuous Essential Oils can be a great addition to any Sensuous Bedtime Routine. As often as possible I like to take a Bath with Essential Oils.  I use only Young Living Essential Oils due to .their “Seed to Seal” Promise.*

So I gather my favorite Essential Oils and choose one or two. I often grab a cup of Epsom Salts and a sprinkle of Sea Salt.  Then I use 3 -8 drops of my favorite oil or sometimes I pick 2 oils. I drop the oils onto the Epsom Salts and mix them up. Sometimes I just put the mixture into an old Jelly jar and shake. Then, in they go, into my hot bath. The scent from the oils in the hot water is very relaxing. Be sure to inhale deeply. Slow deep breathing also gets you ready for bed.

Lavender * is classic and well known for it’s sleep inducing properties. It’s also wonderful mixed with Cedarwood for a lovely night’s sleep. Be sure to use Young Living Lavender grown on their pristine Farms.

Joy** is a very Sensuous Young Living Blend that tends to bring a feeling of relaxation and romance. It includes Rose, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Bergamot and more. And it smells wonderful.

Stress Away ** is yet another Young Living Blend that has always been one of my favorites. It is relaxing any time of day and especially calming in a hot bath. It smells yummy and contains Vanilla, Lime, Cedarwood, Lavender and more.

After my Sensuous Bath I rinse off my face and pat it dry. I put a drop or two of Frankincense* in the palm of my hand and then rub the palms of my hands together and Press my hands onto my face very gently. After that, I cup my hands over my nose and inhale deeply.

I also have a small spray bottle of Lavender or Stress Away mixed with water that I use to  spray on my pillow. I make my spray with a few drops of oil and filtered or spring water.

Then I put some oil on my feet. In the winter I use Thieves to boost my immunity, or Stress Away or Lavender. Sometimes I put socks on to keep my tootsies warm.

And if I’m having a really restless night I put my diffuser on with Lavender and Orange or Cedarwood.

With this sort of routine you are pretty much guaranteed a Sensuous Night’s Sleep !  It’s fun to Create your own unique Sensuous Bedtime Routine.

Sweet Dreams Sensuous Women!

Until Next time,

Peggy Durham

Horizonal Dancing

20151227_203700.jpg

To get ready for your Horizonal Dancing… take a hot oil bath with a few drops of your favorite Essential Oils, and a tablespoon or two of grape seed oil or olive oil. Inhale the steam filled with your Essential Oils and massage your body while you bathe. Spend some time appreciating your wonderful body, and what you can do with it. After your bath, put on some sexy lingerie, or whatever makes you feel Sexy and Sensuous.

Find your favorite music ~ the type of music that makes you want to dance. You may want to create your own collection of Dance Music. Be sure to play  your favorites that make you want to move. Then, get on your bed, strip down as far as you dare, and start moving to the music. You will be doing Horizontal Dancing . . . a new form of Sensuous exercise that we just created.

Wiggle and move your body to the music. If you are not ready to dance, just do a few stretches to help you get more in touch with your body. Close your eyes, and imagine that you are being stroked by a mysterious person. Do to yourself what you wish they were doing to you. Move your body like a hot, sexy woman who is in touch with her Sensuous Self. As you touch yourself … enjoy all of your body’s sensations. Feel your soft and sensuous, newly-oiled skin. Feel the strong lines of your body, and your soft silky hair. Invite your Lover to watch your new Sensuous form of dancing . . . Horizontal Dancing . . . and tell him that he can join in on the fun. Have him lie down next to you and do some Horizonal Dancing together. And remember… the most important thing is to have Fun and  get in touch with your Sensuous Self!

Additional Information: My favorite Essential oils for the bath are Stress away or Lavender and Orange. And I always use  Young Living Oils.

(Caution: be careful getting  into and out of the tub… it will be slippery!)

Sensuous Christmas Photo Shoot…it’s not too late!

img_20151213_123304512.jpg What a great idea for a Christmas present for your Lover or Yourself . . . a Sensuous photo of you wearing something Sexy. Of course, you could go all out and hire a photographer, but let me suggest a less expensive idea. Instead of hiring a photographer, ask your Sensuous Life Coach Buddy, or a close friend to take
a few Sexy photos of you. If you really cannot find anyone to help you with this project . . . ask your Lover. It would be an evening of fun, even if you don’t end up with any photos. 😉

The best plan is to figure out everything that you will need before beginning the photo shoot. Decide how you want to look . . . your hair, your clothes, and especially where you want to take the photos. Think about what your Lover would think is Sexy. You could even ask him covertly. Little white lies are okay at Christmas.  Here is an example:    “My friend is going to have some Sexy Photos made for her Lover for Christmas, but she’s not sure what to wear. And, she’s asking me to take the photos for her.  What do guys really think would make the sexiest Christmas Photo? Lingerie . . . Santa’s Sexy Helper . . . or just Lying Naked under the  Christmas Tree !

Be sure to find a time when you will be alone for the photo shoot. Before the “photographer” arrives, pick out a few outfits, and decide the best location with the best lighting for you. Do what you need to do to get in the mood for Sexy Photos  . . . wine, soft music . . . or whatever it takes to get in touch with your Sensuous, Sexy Self. You can practice posing before your “photographer” shows up. You may want to give the photographer a glass of wine too, if she’s nervous about doing a good job. Decide what look you are going for . . . Sex Goddess, or Demure Ingénue, or anything in-between. Think about what turns him on . . . or just think about having Sex, and let the photographer decide which one of your poses works best.

And be sure to take lots and lots of photos. If the photographer wants a few photos of herself, you can trade places when you are done. Most of all, remember to have fun in the process, and focus on how much fun it will be to see the surprise on your Lover’s face on Christmas Morning.

The Magic of Nature ~Essential Oils

 

wpid-20151114_142706.jpg

The Magic of Nature

I have always believed that Nature provides us with everything that we need to be Healthy, Happy, and Sensuous.  Recently, I became aware of a new way to get more in touch with Nature, and my Sensuous Self . . . Essential Oils.  Essential Oils are highly-concentrated essences from plants that make a plant magical.  They are derived from trees, flowers, herbs, grasses, and resins, using low pressure distillation or cold pressing.  Essential oils are compounds within the plants that are the plants’ natural defense mechanisms.  They help protect the plant.  These compounds are beneficial, and can be used to help us in similar ways.

“Stress Away” got me started.  A friend of mine gave me a drop of “Stress Away.”  I put the drop in my hand, then rubbed my hands together, cupped my hands over my face, and inhaled.  As a psychiatric RN, working night shift in a stressful environment, I discovered that just inhaling the “Stress Away” made me feel more relaxed.  “Stress Away” is a blend of essential oils created by Young Living that includes Vanilla, Lime, Copaiba, Cedarwood, Ocotea, and Lavender. . . .  I love this Essential Oil so much that I’m getting a “Stress Away” Rollerball for several people on my gift-giving list this year!

Here are a few of my Favorites:

Frankincense Oil . . .  I love what it does for my complexion, and how it makes me feel more serene and connected to my Inner Wisdom.  I put a drop in my hand, rub my hands together, and then press them against my face as I inhale.

Lemon Oil . . . Lemon oil is energizing and cleansing.  I enjoy putting a drop or two of real lemon or orange oil in a glass of water every day.  I use a few drops of Stevia to sweeten it.

Lavender . . . I made a Lavender Spray by adding 5 drops of real Lavender Oil in a 3 oz. spray bottle filled with water.  Spraying real Lavender water on my pillow helps me sleep more peacefully and awaken with more energy.

“Thieves” Blend . . . I consider “Thieves” Essential Oil… essential for me to use while I’m at work.  I put a few drops into my Diffuser and it clears the air without having to resort to harsh chemical sprays.  “Thieves” also supports Healthy Immune Function, and helps me feel more relaxed and grounded.  The “Thieves” Blend was designed by Gary Young, YoungLiving.com , and was inspired by a Legend of Four 15th Century Thieves, who used aromatic herbs to keep them healthy, while they were robbing the dead and dying.

What can I say? . . . I ended up buying the Premium Starter Kit which gives me a 24% discount. . . .  This is very helpful, because I keep finding new Essential Oils to Love.

Why I Chose Young Living Essential Oils . . .

Young Living has been in business for over 20 years, and offers the “Seed to Seal” Promise for their Oils. This means that they are in charge of each step of production, beginning with choosing the Seeds and continuing on until each bottle is Sealed.  Young Living’s Farms and Partner Farms are Organic, Sustainable, and Beneficial to the Environment, as well as the People who work with them, and the surrounding areas.

Those are all great reasons to Love this Company!  But, the main reason I love Young Living is that their Essential Oils are 100% High-Quality, Pure, and Therapeutic. These Pure, Therapeutic Essential Oils can be used aromatically, topically, and internally as a dietary supplement.

I never really meant to sell the products when I signed up.  But, whenever I have my Diffuser running at work, everyone wants to know what’s in it, and then, one thing leads to another.

You can find more information about Young Living Products on the website, YoungLiving.com.  I also would encourage you to do your own research to understand more about the many ways Essential Oils can be used to promote a Healthy Lifestyle.

If you know someone who sells Young Living Essential Oils – Great!  If not, you can use my number to order products from YoungLiving.com. #3056729

Enjoy the Magic of Nature that is found in Essential Oils to help you become the Sensuous, Sexy, Healthy and Happy Person you want to be!
