Inner Beauty OuTer Radiance!!

The fire, yang energy is out there! Time of doing, what have you been doing for yourself this Summer?...  
Yes, its important when doing a lot, to have yourself on the top of the list 'To Do'. And of course you are always worth it for a treat or pampering time. Every time I have an opportunity I do it so! This includes cultivating your beauty, which starts by cultivating love, joy and happiness!
The secret of true love is to be lovable.
LOVE Yourself, let the energy of love flow within you and be expressed in your outer world.
Joy!=) Every day do something that gives you pure joy, which happens when our heart smiles! And your face follows your heart, contributing to your natural beauty!...
For a few beauty tips click here and benefits of smiling click here.
Happy people shine!...Notice in yourself when you're happy! Be happy! Get happy! Positive emotions have been linked to a lower risk of coronary heart disease. Also boosts your immune system, enabling it to handle stressful situations better.
Definitely true beauty comes from inside, but we are also allowed to be beautiful on the outside too, after all our body is the temple of our spirit!

"The body is fundamental and necessary for the realization of the Divine intention" (Rumi
One of the things that really applied to me with the Taoist practices is the care and importance of the body as the soul, the important balance
of physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual.
You already know you've to give special attention to your heart this season.
**Keep smiling to you heart... :)

***To let go the heart (negative) emotions, to cool down your heart heat do the healing sound.
Focus on you heart, delve into it and acknowledge any feelings of impatience, apathy, cruelty and hatred, breathe in from your heart and breathe out all these feelings with the heart sound HAWWWWWW. As the sound vibrates in your heart inhale now in the fresh red light of love, joy, happiness, laughter, honor, radiance and enthusiasm. To add the movement, when you breath out raise your arms and clasp above the head, then lean to the right.

***Do you know grapes are the heart's best friend?  
Being rich in vitamins A, B and C, besides proteins, carbohydrates, iodine, phosphorus and flavoides, grapes protect the heart against stroke, help clear clogged arteries and regulate the levels of cholesterol in the blood. Also improve the functioning of the kidneys and liver! But just be aware the green or white grapes do not have the same effect of the black or red grapes, because it does not contain flavoides - substances that act as anti-inflammatory and help in the protection of every organism against free radicals that cause aging.
Grapes promote fertility and mental power and...
...you can use to clean your skin!
**Cut two large grapes in half horizontally and remove the seeds, rub the grapes all over your face in circular motions. Rinse and dry with a towel.

***Good news: chocolate protects the heart! Of course chocolate is just good only when consumed in moderation, the ideal is 30g to 50g per day of dark or milk chocolate. But experts say that one piece of dark chocolate a day can benefit the heart, as its high in antioxidants called polyphenols, that prevents the fats in the blood vessel walls, (is good for men's libido too!). And the chocolate is often associated with feelings of joy, happiness and well-being!

***If you don't like chocolate or grapes, maybe green tea is the best option for your heart! It is known that green tea has medicinal features that lower the levels of cholesterol, improves blood circulation and reduce the risk of stroke.

Ah! What was my treat and pampering this Summer? 
Well a few, contra-balanced with lots of doing... But the best one was the Lomi Lomi Nui massage, this lovely Hawaiian massage I received from Goddess Jusytna! Amazing! Such a delicious, relaxed and nurturing time I had. I recommend it.
