Cleansing our body, mind & spirit is so refreshing…kind of like the beauty of this picture…it just makes you feel all wonderful and peaceful doesn’t it?

Obviously…this is a HUGE deal in the world we live in due to all of the toxicity in our world today: environment, food, beauty products…just to name a few.

We must be diligent in caring about what we put into our bodies, as that affects this shell we inhabit in either good ways, or bad ways in what comes out of our bodies.

BeverlyD is a revolutionary leader in teaching on how to cleanse your insides first, which in turn will affect your outside in a wonderful way!

Here are a couple excerpts from the book HAIR NOW ~ 7 Devotions of Hair Enlivenment by BeverlyD that deal with how to cleanse from the inside out.how to cleanse from the inside out

“Learning how to read the ingredients list on a product label is essential. Labels indicating that a product contains “natural ingredients” can be misleading.

The first three ingredients listed on any given label are the most important.

Manufacturers will often prominently display the word “water” on labels of natural products. This is not false.

However, if water is listed as the first ingredient in a shampoo, and the second is sodium lauryl sulfate, then the primary active ingredient in that shampoo is sodium lauryl sulfate. Sodium laurel sulfate, and sodium laureth sulfate, among other common ingredients found in most hair care products are petroleum-derived.

A petroleum derived ingredient is an ingredient that is processed from petroleum.

The process produces toxins which damage hair, follicle, and scalp. Because petroleum is a natural substance, one might easily assume it is beneficial to our locks, but petroleum-based substances are damaging to our hair.”

 

“Know the difference between organic, natural, and green, and whenever possible, go local.

There are a great many benefits to interacting with local communities, not the least of which is the ability to investigate and ascertain the integrity and authenticity of a product.”

Just a few words of wisdom concerning cleansing that we can all LIVE by!

How to Naturally Cleanse Your Hair

 

An excerpt from HAIR NOW ~ Seven Devotions of Hair Enlivenment.

wash hairCleansing our hair becomes a gentler, easier process when we use organic, natural ingredients from the plant kingdom.

There is an energy that comes from the plant kingdom that makes us feel, or experience things more intensely.

Our hair and everything around us becomes softer, kinder, more natural.

This energy is like a spiritual vibration that grows out of our being kind to ourselves, and extends this kindness to our whole self, and even to other people.

It is not necessary to pressure the hair, the body, or the spirit into change. The goal is not to get healthy hair in a day. Restoring the hair takes time, as we are implementing a whole health system.

When we use organic plants and plant materials, we are not going to be cleansing as frequently as we would with synthetic, petroleum-based products that coat, wax, and polish the hair, and make it necessary to shampoo every naturally cleanse hairday.

Treating hair well and keeping it clean is not just about the grooming, or shampooing process. Cleansing occurs outside and inside, and also involves nutrition.  Oils cleanse from the outside, but we must also nurture the hair from the inside through the carefully selected nutrients we give it and the foods we eat every day.

There is a dirty little secret that shampoo companies do not want us to know. When we wash our hair with their nutrient-rich shampoos, most of the nutrients and active ingredients end up not in our hair, but down the drain, along with all the money that we spent on the product.

These shampoos are not molecularly structured to penetrate the cells of hair, especially not the tiny hair
follicles from where our hair actually grows. Instead, they sit atop the follicle and cuticle until we rinse them away.

To think about this another way: if you fertilize a plant, do you pour the fertilizer on the leaves?

Of course not. You pour the fertilizer on the roots and into the soil.

Our hair works basically the same way.

If we want to feed our hair correctly, we must treat it at the roots. Plant oils have varying molecular structures designed to penetrate the scalp and hair follicle so that a healthy, balanced environment is cultivated for hair growth.

Using a plant-based shampoo can make all the
difference for growing a beautiful and healthy head of hair.

Daring to Be in 2014

Truth or Dare what gives you more energy?  Someone admits as a truth they secretly admired you. Feels nice, warm.  OR They became daring and come to you with flowers and a bold statement of’ I have been admiring you from afar’. Same or Different?

Bold statements shock and surprise us. Who doesn’t like a surprise now and then. It has energy and excitement.  It perturbs our predictable or usual state.  It’s like an injection of vitamins, puts a smile on your face, your hormones get happy.

Sometimes when people are daring or appear bold, they are accused of being a rebel, think Madonna, Bob Dylan, heck I certainly have been accused of that and I remember in the 80″s feeling wronged by that statement.  I needed to conform.

Yea I saw what that did to me.  I got caught up in being average then I gained weight and got uglier…I grew my hair, I got a boyfriend, I became so ordinary and my life became very predictable and had a look associated with that future, Yuck.  Then I found my Daring again.

First, I had to find my fellow rebels, Madonna, music business, karaoke, short skirts, Germans, traveling, a far-out life mentor, peach orange hair! That’s the girl! I became older and bolder.  The GREAT thing about this is that when people from my past see me now they always are a bit shocked and say I haven’t aged a bit.  It’s true I have been getting younger as I get older.

Daring to be involves doing…doing is action, action creates more energy.Practicing, getting curious, expanding your world view, is how you train for daring.  You get out of your box and jump into the triangle.  This is how you evolve to being daring.  Because now there is no effort in being daring.   I am daring!

As we end our year, how can you preparing for a daring future?  Who would you like to be in the company of?  What clothes would you daringly wear?  What BOLD statement do you want to make?  This is how to prepare yourself for your new year REVOLUTION.

TELL THE TRUTH OR TAKE THE DARE!

Take the Dare this year…go for it…the energy derived from getting out of that box is what changes the world.!  Happy New Year!  Be the REVOLUTION you want to see!
