DIY Lemon Sugar Body Scrub

With so many options in stores it’s hard to know which scrubs are actually good for you. So many body scrubs in stores are not all natural, and may contain ingredients that are toxic for your skin. Then you have those scrubs that are just too expensive to justify paying for. DIY body scrubs are a cheap and non-toxic alternative to store bought scrubs.
You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own body scrub at home. It makes a perfect gift when placed in a mason jar with a twine wrapped label. This lemon sugar body scrub only requires three simple ingredients that you probably already have at home. All you need is brown sugar, lemon, and coconut oil. It also smells heavenly!
These ingredients have some amazing benefits for your skin: 
Lemon juice/zest- Acts as a natural exfoliant to get rid of dead skin. Lemon juice alone acts as a blackhead remover. Simply apply straight lemon juice on your face with a cotton ball at night and rinse it off in the morning. Lemon juice also naturally brightens the skin. Who doesn’t want a natural glow? (source) 
Brown Sugar- It’s softer than regular sugar, so it’s perfect for sensitive areas such as your face. Brown sugar contains glycolic acid, that fights bacteria. Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxyl acid, which is important in keeping your skin vivacious and healthy. Not only is brown sugar a perfect natural exfoliant, but it also keeps dry skin moisturized. (source)
Coconut Oil- Acts as a super powerful moisturizer. It leaves your dry skin feeling softer than ever. It also contains Vitamin E which can protect your skin from damage over time. It also soothes skin problems such as eczema, sunburn and psoriasis, and it can also help with pesky bug bites! (source)
To use this body scrub simply apply a generous amount to your skin while showering, rub on your skin for a few minutes,  and rinse off completely. You won’t believe how soft your skin will feel afterwards!

Roger Goodell - A Closer Look At His Numerology

Before last week I’d never heard the name Roger Goodell, but I’m also not a football fan. The now infamous NFL commissioner is being faced with many challenges for overlooking a very inordinate football league, to which he is the leader of. With so many athletes getting a slap on the wrist for grisly behavior, it’s no surprise the heat will hit at the top; especially when we take a look at his numbers. Sports fans will often break down statistics that I don’t understand, but I always look at the situation from a numerological stand point that shows vibrational patterns and connections that create our blueprint.
Goodell was born on February 19 and carries a 9 life path. The number 9 in numerology is considered the number of humility, and service to others. He was also born into a 9 year, and it’s one of his life lessons to learn.
When we look further into his numbers we see he carries a karmic debt of 19/1. Karmic life lessons and karmic debts are two entirely different things. A life lesson is something we are here to learn and a karmic debt is something we owe due to an abuse we did in a previous time.  A 19/1 karmic debt challenges us to help others but we often choose not to listen. As Maya Angelou so famously said, “When you know better, you do better.” But when you carry the karmic 19/1 you know better and it’s your free will that challenges you on whether you’ll choose to do better.
The 19/1 carries with it a message about abusing power for selfish gains. Where the soul holds valuable information but chooses to be self-centered through lack of compassion. And these actions are never irresponsible but very calculated.
I should also note that behaviors that a 19/1 carry are associated with narcissism, egotism, selfishness, being intimidating and lacking strong leadership.
In February Ray Rice was arrested for assaulting his then fiancĂ©, Janay Palmer. Something the public heard very little about and presumably neither did Goodell. Or was this valuable information kept to himself? In February, Goodell entered into a 1 personal year. Personal year numbers let us see patterns and help us understand the potential for events and situations ahead. A 1 year ushers in massive change and is the time to start fresh, and start new. This is a time when you must stand on your own two feet and be an individual in your actions. It is also a time when clear thinking is necessary.
On September 8, 2014 TMZ released a very shocking video of Ray Rice assaulting his fiancĂ© in an elevator. September 8, 2014 unlocks the numerical code of 7-8-9, a numerical triad of spirit, eternity and unconditional love. So how on earth does such a triad of love and spirit get tangled up with assault? Let’s be reminded that when codes are activated they are gentle reminders of our lessons, goals and purpose. And as a 9 life path it is Goodell’s purpose to give back in a big way...{to continue reading click here}
