My Favorite Night Time Drink

This post contains affiliate links

I discovered Golden Milk like many others through various posts online.  There all kinds of great recipes of this ancient drink and many will advise you on specific ingredients to make your own customized version of this drink.  

Golden Milk is a mixture of Tumeric with various herbs mixed into heated milk.  This is an Ayurvedic remedy used to alleviate a variety of issues, including restlessness, fatigue, joint pain, or digestive issues.

I have started using Gaia Golden Milk at bedtime to prevent nighttime snacking.  I use about 1 teaspoon in 8-10 ounces of heated Almond or Soymilk.  I have tried in in regular Cow’s milk as well, every one of them taste great with this.  

I like to to froth the milk with the frother on my coffee maker to make it extra fancy, and I top with Cinnamon.

Envision a Joyous Earth and send Reiki to the future

Today’s Inspiration from the June Reiki Rays calendar is to send Reiki to the future. Reiki practitioners know how to use distance Reiki to the future. If you are not a Reiki practitioner simply send thoughts of love to our planet.

Today’s inspiration from Reiki Ray’s is one of my favorites…essential oils! The post recommends using rose of geranium. In an upcoming post, I’ll give more information on essential oils and pregnancy, of which rose is a good choice for pregnant women. I like to add a drop of rose my hand lotion for a mood lifter. My Monday favorites are usually in the citrus families, being lemon or orange.

Believe in yourself

The theme of the May calender from Reiki Ray’s is about self care. Self care is serious business. When we’re poor ourselves last we simply won’t be away our best.

I end up discussing this topic a lot while taking care of patients. Unfortunately, most of the diseases I treat are preventable and reversible, including Diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. A patient dealing with one of these needs to have a positive outlook on life and themselves in order to heal.

One way I recharge my self belief is to think of my own victories. They may be small, like connecting with a sick patient, or big, like finishing school. Tap into that feeling, not so much the end result, but the feeling on the way to the victory. Maybe that bright place can return to your heart today.

Be Your Own Best Friend

Todays Reiki Ray’s Inspiration is to be your own best friend. We all hope to have someone to confide in, but in tough times, being able to be there for yourself can be as important as being there for others.

Maybe you can treat yourself to a nice lunch, or don’t be hard on yourself, or maybe take credit for something your proud of.

Forgiveness is a complicated topic. It can be complicated, and take much effort to forgive a person, situation, or yourself.

Today, simply say to yourself “I forgive …”. simply a thought or intention.
