an easy mindfulness meditation

It was when she discovered the teachings of Grand Master Choa Kok Sui’s Pranic Healing in 2009, a non-touch energy healing modality, that Kassandra Scardino began her journey to self healing and self discovery. Since then, she dedicated her life to developing her skills as a healer and teacher. She shares with us a daily ritual that she created to develop mindfulness. “It is so important to connect with yourself daily through mindfulness meditation. It can be the difference between survival and thriving in our busy modern lives. The act of mindfulness is about being aware of what is happening to you in the present moment, and not living in the past or future. Too often we dwell on the past, where we ate that doughnut for breakfast and beat ourselves up for breaking our diet. Or we could be anxious about that deadline that is awaiting at the end of the week. Either way if it is somehow linked to a negative, that could be creating stress in our body and mind.

There are so many products to choose from these days. We want it all: performance, longevity, the right price. If you’re conscious of the environment, you want your purchases to make as little impact as possible. So what does this mean? When we start to be aware of the huge amount of energy it takes to product a single item – in terms of electricity, water, human hands and other resources, it changes the way we view the world. You only have to watch one video of all the rubbish in the ocean to feel a little overwhelmed. We live in this beautiful world, but it seems so much of what we do is having a negative impact!

eyes light up

Highlight your eyes. They frame our face, they are how we connect to others. Attention to the simple things can make a world of difference. We like bright eyes, long lashes & tidy brows as basic steps to a great natural look. Forget the extras we’re going back to basics! Eye health is important. Treat your eyes to natural products. They are sensitive and can react to chemical products. Change your mascara and eyeshadow every six months to keep your eyes fresh A layer of clear mascara on your eyebrows can work wonders! If your brows are sparse, use a natural eyebrow pencil Wash your makeup brushes. It’s a good idea to invest in new ones when they are starting to shed hairs and feel tough on skin. CREATE A NEUTRAL PALETTE FOR YOUR EYES TO SHINE
