Being a reflexologist, I understand the need for a good, clear connection in the energy pathways of the nervous system.
In a sense, I consider my hair to be part of my nervous system, a receptor you might say. Sensory detectors, like those that work together with a cat's whiskers or a horse's hair, that can detect the smallest sensation. For me, my hair is both a spiritual and physical sensory tool.
Sometimes I like to give it a good stripping down from any residue and buildup of mineral deposits that it collects in a variety of environments I pass through. My preference is to use a blend of white vinegar and water to strip and clean away the accumulation of stuff that builds up on the hair shafts. I don’t do it every time I wash it, but I do use it frequently. It helps it stay shiny, healthy and feels much better after I’ve done this sort of treatment on it.
I also think it’s important for us to strip ourselves down as a whole, in body mind and spirit. We accumulate build-up on ourselves just by living in this world.
A way I do this is by taking a saltwater bath to help remove toxins from my skin. I think it’s probably best to do in the morning after a good night’s sleep. If you live by the sea you can take a nice morning swim.
I also drink lots of water, fruit and herb infused water and herbal teas to flush out waste in my body. One of my favorites is roasted dandelion root tea. Good hydration helps keep those synapses firing, helping us to focus, learn and remember in a quality, healthy fashion.
For my soul and spirit I must recommend a prayer of repentance, and thankfulness to God almighty for the cleansing for the heart and mind. Being baptized in the name of Jesus transformed me from the inside out. I literally felt like I was going to float away into the atmosphere. It was a supernatural experience like I had never had before.
We encounter physical and emotional events throughout the day that leave some unbecoming residue on our mind and spirit. A word that causes us pain or a visual image of distress can leave residue that hinders a clear and clean communication in our spirit that greatly affects our body. Disappointments, betrayals and grief will always be in our environment.
We must learn to strip the residue these encounters cause to develop in our mind and spirit. Some are parasitic in nature. They will feed on our fears and other deadly emotions and thoughts.
For me, when life's residue gets heavy, I choose to bathe my spirit in the presence of Jesus through prayer and meditation on His goodness. It’s how I take a spiritual bath and get the dirt washed off, so I can move forward feeling lighter and refreshed.
A saltwater bath. A white vinegar-water rinse. Some quality time with Jesus. I hope I’ve been able to encourage you and helped equip you with information you can use to strip the unwanted residue from your life, too.
I'm excited to be one of the featured artists at Blick Art Materials in Evansville, Indiana during the month of July. If you're in the area, I hope you'll drop in and have a look. Blick's is family owned and the staff is superbly friendly and helpful. I've thoroughly enjoyed getting acquainted with them.
In addition, I want to extend my appreciation for the tips my site's been receiving from you. I'm most appreciative for your support of my work here and want to share with you what some of it went to help me with recently.
We nearly lost Touching Fire, one of my adopted horses (who is standing next to me in my profile pic up top) recently, due colic.
After much walking with her for nearly a day and a night in the pasture, a visit from Dr. Stone of Stone Ridge Equine Care, LLC (Evansville, Indiana), and a whole lot of prayers going up all the way from here to Texas, Fire is feeling much better and will be ready to go riding again soon.
She and Little Star (my other adopted horse) say "Thank you!" (in horsey-talk) for lending a hand with buying their feed and helping to pay for their vet's visits.
God bless you, and thank you again for your visit. It's most appreciated and I'm looking forward to having you back again next month.
