Healing <3

I’m making a self help blog to address issues that I have as well as meaningfull advice. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and I feel like its something that would especially be helpful at such a time.

As you get older, you must deal with a lot more problems. Those problems have made me realize that I have a lot of healing to do in order to get my mins fully right. There’s a lot of pain that revolves around unresolved conflicts from childhood and I realize a lot of it revolves around not loving and accepting myself, self approval, and a lot of guilt anger and sadness that was caused by abandonement, humiliation, and distrust. I care for that inner child so much and I do not want to see myself go downhill. Ive seen a lot of examples of people around me like that and I want to become emotionally strong and resilient. I always admire how others deal with pain and struggles and come up more beautiful than ever.

Ever since I got my lotus flower I feel like my life has put me through more situations and experiences that show me where I need to heal. It’s like I’m trying my best to do some self cleansing so I can grow and blossom even more.

I need to let go of these fears and have trust in a higher power and not loose focus and motivation. I have to be there for myself through all of this and see just how strong I am. I acknowledge that this is all only temporary, just as past struggles have come and gone. I will be okay. I love and accept myself. I an strong and emotionally resilient.

Beauty-Tip #9&#160;: HOME MADE BATHS 
Here is an article for you about different sorts of home-made baths that you can make at home. Theses recipes will help you, your skin, your body… just choose the most appropriate one for yourself :) 
Bath with sea saltStir in water 350 gr. of natural sea salt and lay in this “sea” for about 15-20 minutes. This procedure stimulates your metabolism. A whole course (to really straighten your metabolism) consists of 10-12 baths that you take every two days. You skin becomes much smoother and more elastic. The temperature of your “sea” should not exceed 36-37C°. 
Cleopatra BathTake 1 litre of natural cow milk, add 200-300 grams of honey. Stir and pour into your bath. Now you can feel like a Cleopatra, your skin will become very smooth and silky.
Bath with henna and teaIn a 3-litre jar put three tablespoons of black tea and 2 1/3 tablespoons of henna. Pour in boiling water. Infuse for 15 minutes. Strain this mix in order to eliminate the bits. After this, you can pour this brownish-green liquid in your bath. Your bath might be a little dirty afterwards, but it washes away easily with bathroom-detergent. 
Bath with oil and orange oil against celluliteDilute a few drops of orange oil in olive oil and pour it all into the tub. This mixture of oils gradually diminishes cellulite. While bathing, you will feel your skill pinch from time to time and this is good. However, you should stop the process if you feel pain or strong discomfort. 
Bath with bay leavesPour boiling water over 10-12 bay leaves and let in infuse for 20-30 minutes. Add this infusion to your bath. This will show a very calming effect not only on the state of mind, but also on your skin 
Relaxing bath, muscle tension and muscle pain relief8 glasses of water, 1 cup of berries and pins of Juniper, a handful of eucalyptus leaves, 1/2 cup of lavender flowers and leaves, 2 cinnamon sticks, peel of 1 orange. Bring the resulting mixture to boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes. The strain and pour into a warm bath. 
Bath “Mandarin Caprice”5 drops of essential oil of tangerine, 3 drops of lavender oil, 1 drop of pine oil, a handful of fresh tangerine peels, 1/2 tablespoon of jojoba oil (it’s fine if you don’t have any). Add this mixture to your bath. The smell of citrus lifts your spirits, refreshes and relieves fatigue. Tangerine oil is ideal to prevent acne, helps to heal scars and stretch marks 
Body bath and steam bath for face on herbsNormal Skin&#160;: chamomile, geranium, lavender, yiang-yiang. Sensitive skin&#160;: camomile, lavender, rose, orange blossom, scented violet. Dry Skin&#160;: clary sage, sandalwood, marshmallow, rose. Oily Skin&#160;: calendula, lemon, basil, juniper and sage. Out of these herbs, you can make an infusion by brewing them in advance and then let infuse for 20-30 minute. Pour the infusion in your bath afterwards. To make a steam bath for the face, you need to pour boiling water over 1/4 cup dry herb mixture, cover your head with a towel and inhale the team of this infusion for 10 min
Bath for soft and silky skinFor the skin to be soft and silky you need to take a shower in the evening and, on a clean and dry body (from feet to neck), rub in olive oil or any other vegetable oil. While rubbing in the oil, start preparing a bath with nice warm water. When your body is oily and your bath is ready, lay there for at least 15-20 minutes, massaging your skin and rubbing in the oil more and more. After the bath, you can wash off the oil with soap and water, but you can also simply use a wet towel. After this bath, it’s better to go straight to bed. Overnight, your skin will absorb the oil that you rubbed in and it will be baby smooth in the morning! 
Starch Bath to smoothen skinTake 0.5 kg of potato starch or a litter of thick oatmeal broth. Mix it with 1 tablespoon of pine extract. After the bath, treat your body with some moisturising cream 
Vinegar bag to smoothen skinSimply add 2-3 cups of apple vinegar to your bath
Bath for dry skinAdd a glass of glycerol into your bath. Soak your body in this bath for 10 minutes maximum. Do not take this bath if you have a sunburn, as well as right after sunbathing!

will do all of this.

Seeing defensiveness in others only helps me to see that it is not a good trait, rather a weak one. It doesn’t allow for improvement at all and it can ruin ties as well.

Affirmation: I make an effort to intently listen to what others have to say.

Respect is something really important in any type of relationship. Whether that be work, your husband/wife, friend, whatever. IT’S IMPORTANT. It says a lot about character when you do. Respect means taking initiative, understanding and listening to a person, being considerate. Everyone should know what is and when to especially be like that.

I’m not perfect and Im not always the best person ever. But I try my best. I show that thru all I do for people and I hate asking for it but I do expect it, especially for what I do. I really like that about myself and I stop being nice when I feel like other individuals could give a Damn because they are stuck on themselves. I know I’m not because I do hella shit to go out of my way and if I have to mention this it pisses me off further. If I ain’t bring respected I will not return it either and not have any courtesy. Being nice makes you get walked on sometimes and I will not put up with that shit. If people want to be a certain way, fine. But not around me. I have done a lot and do a lot to people who need help who cant do it alone.
