When you’re Awake In A Sleep World: My Thoughts On Vegas Attack @ Mandalay Bay

I worked at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on Saturday (9/30) & Monday (10/1). I was assigned to work there for the NetApp Convention until Wednesday evening. To avoid paying for parking ($15/day), I parked down at Tropicana Hotel which is at Tropicana Avenue/Las Vegas Blvd. To avoid parking so far on Sunday, I was dropped off and picked up. Each time whether I was walking or driving, I had to pass the Route 91 Country Festival, go through the Mandalay Bay and make my way to the Conventuon Center. While walking by, I noticed happy people in their cowboy/cowgirl attire saying hello & locking eyes with me as they passed. After working at Sheplers for one winter season some years back, I’ve learned to appreciate a great pair of authentic Western boots :). It was such a great crowd of people at this event. 

On Sunday at approximately 8pm, I just had this bad feeling and knew something wasn’t right. It also seemed as if everything was getting in the way to stop me from attending my 6am shift Monday morning. I woke up several times in the middle of the night & only had about 4 hours of sleep. I officially woke up to check the time on my phone. It was a little after 5am. I had a Facebook notification that said one of my facebook friends were “safe” in Las Vegas. When I saw this, I sat up, became alert & a bit worried about the possibilities. I then did a google search in Las Vegas. The most devastating news was in the search engine. “40 dead, over 400 injured deadly shooting.” I saw the words Mandalay Bay & Route 91. Yes the worst happened. 

All I could think of is how these people were having a great time. How I passed this festival alone and how we were stuck in the busy Strip traffic with my children in the car. I thought of how all the madness taken place in this world, the country festival, which I’m positive promoted great vibes was the place this massacre took place. 

What was this man’s motive? What would make someone to get a hotel room on the 32nd floor overlooking the event and open fire on an outdoor festival with over 20,000 people present??? What in the hell ticked this guy off? Why at one of the most EVER peaceful event on the Las Vegas strip??? From my experience, here’s my thoughts:

People are unsure where this world is going. Many are finding out that we’ve been living in a big fat lie where in America. Inflation is almost at its peak, cost of living keep rising, social media was a great thing until many found a way to spread a negative message causing people to live in fear more than ever, what we used to consider food isn’t food anymore, politics are corrupt and living out there own agendas, the American safety net is disappearing,

2 Natural Sweeteners You’ll Love

textgram_1502232859[1]It’s hard to find a natural sweetener that taste good, dissolves easily, healthy and doesn’t have a horrible after taste. There are so many so called alternative ‘sweeteners’ on the market that promise they are the best. Yeah right! I’m here to tell you about 2 natural sweeteners that doesn’t need help to be delicious! They are safe to use as much as you like, naturally created by Mother nature itself and can be used in countless ways! How do I know this? I’ve been using these 2 ingredients since I’ve started my meatless journey close to a year ago! I use them for like everything sweet!

What’s the first natural sweetener that has nothing to do with the addictive sugar cane or its deadly alternatives?

ITS ORGANIC AGAVE NECTAR!

Agave Nectar is the best of the best of the best when it comes to a sugar substitute! In my home, we substitute it for everything! We use it on…

Pancakes and waffles, steel oats & grits, tea, coffee, sweet sauces, lemonade, etc. We use Agave in everything! I no longer by syrup, sugar or anything that isn’t going to benefit our heath.

The 2nd natural sweetener is ORGANIC DRIED DATES!

date-1091228_1920

Dates are so delicious and are great to add sweetness to desserts, smoothies, ice cream, oatmeal or whatever else you like sweet! Unlike Agave Nectar, dates look similar to prunes. They also have a huge seed right in the center that can’t be chewed or swallowed. After removing the seeds from this fruit, it can be chopped up and added to whatever you like! It can also be shredded in a blender. I love to add this to our home made banana ice cream, and home made smoothies! This fruit is so sweet and actually has a nutty flavor. If you haven’t tried this natural fruit, you must give it a try!

So why would I recommend these two foods over everything for sweetness? These two are still natural! Most of our foods aren’t food. They cause harm our temples unlike foods that are grown and prepared in their natural state.

Why I Love My Hair :)

PhotoGrid_1501816848234

As a child, I was raised that hair can either make or break a woman. In other words, our hair is everything. There’s no in between, it’s literally EVERYTHING! Later in life, I found that these beliefs are misconceptions and sets women up for failure. That might sound weird coming from someone who chose a beauty career right? While I still enjoy making others beautiful, my mission has always been beauty from within.  Another fact I realized was how insecure, arrogant or stuck up some women are over this illusion. This has made me become more aware of who I want the world to see over what society wants to see.

So why I love my wild, sometimes tamed, weave and naturally curly hair?

Hair is how I express myself. It’s not perfect, but gives a perception of who I want to be. I can be pretty bold, straight to the point and my hair helps me get my point across.

I love the versatility I have with my hair! It’s long one day, short the next, shaved off, or any other way. I don’t have just one set look and that’s what makes me who I AM!

When I learned my true hair type, I’ve learned to embrace it! When I stopped relaxing my hair and actually say that my hair wasn’t as nappy as I thought it was, I became appreciative of the natural beauty I possess!

Do you love you natural hair no matter how it is? I’d love to hear from you!

Question Everything – Your Life Is Precious

textgram_1497747987Physical death is something we never want to experience, but its a fact we face sooner or later in this life. Premature death seems to keep rising here in the USA. This made me put self education first and grow closer to understanding this life outside of our “man made” society. To dig deeper into natural remedies and live a healthier lifestyle.

According to the Washington Post, the third leading cause of death in the U.S. is medical errors. In this country, we’ve been trained to trust our medical professionals knowing that they have our best interest (our precious, price less life) at hand. Its sad and gets under my skin to hear how people die, because their trusted doctor issued the wrong prescription or didn’t diagnose their patients properly. No one should ever have to make funeral arrangements for this kind of premature death. These situations are preventable.

Why aren’t doctors getting time in prison when these careless events take place? How can we help ourselves when we face health challenges?

Here’s what I’ve learned since I’ve become more aware.

When you visit your doctor, ask questions and make sure they are answered properly. Nowadays, its easy to spend 2 hours in an office for a doctor visit just to see the doctor for a total of 5 minutes. In the past, I’ve had to slow my doctor down more than once to ask questions and get my questions answered thoroughly. Why is this? I’m not saying all doctors are like this, but these people exists. They are paid very much and spend very little time with their patients. Make sure your doctor is listening and care for you. If your provider can’t deliver, find one who will.

Natural remedies are saving lives! The less you’re at the doctor, the less money they make. So there had to be a way for you to always come back right? Its called marketing! If you’re healthy, they are broke. If you’re unhealthy, everyone is happy except you and your family :(. So do you continue to go with the waves that are falling off the cliff to their death or do you go against those waves to save your life?

Electric Herbs offers natural healing. Our creator knew how to keep us well. It’s with electric foods! Herbs, vegetables and fruits in their natural state builds longevity in the human body. The cure is/was never in man made chemicals. We were brain washed to believe this horrible delusion. There’s herbs that can improve our bodies interally and externally with no hesitation. Become best friends with the real God created food! There are so many guides on natural herbs and healing. Not sure where to start? Contact me.

When eating right and taking care of the body, it naturally repairs itself. Studies have proven that in time, we have a brand new body on the inside. Yes we age, but the body was never created to break down so easily. It breaks down from foreign substances we insert that causes our temple to act differently. It stores fat, gets diseased and then die before its time. Love yourself and question everything.
