Are Dogs & Kids Just Mirrors of Our Own Energy?

So... my boyfriend has been insisting that we get a shock collar for the love of my life. (No way. Ever. Not gonna happen.) When I went searching for kinder options, I was floored to find myself looking in the mirror.I should preface this blog by saying: I don't have kids. Unless you count my three pups, which I do.

No-Bake Energy Bars

It's the weekend and I like to make a batch of my NO-BAKE ENERGY BARS. Due to certain nut allergies, I cannot eat packaged granola bars, energy bars, etc. Plus, I eat as clean as possible so I like to know what is in my food.

However, a few people I spoke to over the weekend, including those in other parts of the globe reported having the same feeling. For me, this was confirmation  that something was happening energetically. As we approach the New (super) Moon in Aquarius and, more poignantly, the Year of the Wood Horse there is a definite shift in energy.

The Inner Path: Your Thoughts Build Your Life

"It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It's what you think about it.”― Dale Carnegie What a reminder!
