Ethical Trade

Ethical Trade This is another one of my first, introductory posts about the different areas I'll be covering.
There's nothing more cool and amazing than a gift to yourself or to someone else that has kindness and loveliness all over it!
In this world people, earth and animals can be bullied and exploited. But things have really changed for the better too. There's TONS of people doing stunning, heroic, amazing things now, so I want to focus on and provide, support and celebrate our solutions. 

This topic covers products which are fair trade, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, vegan, organic and natural as well as products that are being sold to support worthy earth, people and animal causes. 

Hopefully all or most of the things on my blog here are ethical trade, but this topic covers just the really good stuff! I've got the most gorgeous things to show you here! Check out these ...


Natural Health

This is one of my first posts. It's the introduction to the topic of Natural Health, one of the things I'm writing about on this blog.

The current predominant medical model in the world, started in the west, is called 'the biomedical model'. Believe it or not, and when you think about it, this model for treating illnesses, i.e treating or managing the symptoms of illnesses with expensive tablets and vaccines, has only been around since the 19th century!

Yes, we have to try out ideas, like this medical model, it's evolution. But we know that part of learning is when we do things, but then realize they were a mistake!
We are a product of nature. All natural systems evolve, but to do so, they will go through problem stages that they have to overcome. 

In natural and holistic healing, illness is thought of as a reaction to the intake of unhealthy external energy leading to unhealthy physical, psychological or emotional imbalances.

There's more and more scientifi…

Arts and Handmade Crafts

Why We Need To Encourage Individual Expression Creativity is an essential hippy thing because is so integral to emotional and spiritual fulfillment. Too much emphasis on the logical and 'technical' causes stress. Emotions are our life force and spiritual channel. Left brainism has permeated our collective psychology so that creative, expressive people are undervalued. Some artists and creatives will make it big only with support and it's often at the expense of their true expression.
A Healthier Economy
The economy needs more healthy small businesses. There’s a common argument for supporting the big business 'throw away' industry involving workers from poor countries, that is, that it gives poor people jobs, like it's a practical answer to the idea, the 'fact' that we all need to scrabble and fight to survive and that's just the way it is, but it's not like that for everyone! I would say that is an excuse and a patch up job that just giv…

It's our nature and purpose to reach for happiness and the light, but pain and darkness are just as much a necessary part of that process of growth.

The energy of our experiences is passed on, ultimately into the collective consciousness, through emotional energy, body language, our actions and our words. 

Of course, we do need other people to help us sometimes. Sharing thoughts and feelings is an important part of all healthy relationships, but also, it’s important to strike a balance and not unnecessarily pass negativity onto others, who may not be best placed to help.
So, in order really to love and honor ourselves and each other, we are all responsible for our own personal happiness and evolution.

We can learn deep things just by living, but then it’s common f…

Sustainable Living

Sustainable means something can be sustained or kept active through renewal and kept reproducingrather than being wasted.

The term can be applied to any context ofhealthy, prosperous and balanced living including the management of money and our relationships with others, because it is about getting the most from the thing itself, involving the practical, knowledgeable, skillful use and reuse of resources.
In general we use the term ‘sustainable living’ today to mean the respectful use and management of natural resources, use of ecologically harmonious products, natural building techniques and the practical, natural procurement of food. 
Sustainable living covers a lot of areas including re and upcycling, permaculture, organic food, renewable energy, tiny house and eco-homes, self-reliance and general everyday green living.

Sustainable living is in harmony with who we are and where we live. 
In a spiritual context it's cyclical, natural, spiritual or karmic law that nothing is ever crea…
