TODAY on August 8th, National CBD Day recognizes the natural hemp product everyone’s asking for!
Over the years, hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol) has made quite a name for itself in the wellness world. Since a growing number of products – from tinctures to topicals – hit the marketplace, CBD continues to be shoppers’ favorite option for holistic alternatives. As an added bonus, CBD does not possess the psychoactive properties of THC. Another advantage of CBD is that it is naturally sourced and extremely versatile. Try a tincture, capsule, rubbing it on your skin, or bathing in it. You can even give it to your pets!
The hemp plant has withstood the test of time and politics; herbalists have long used hemp to promote wellness, while farmers have grown it as a source of fiber to make clothes and rope. But in the 20th century, governments came down on all things cannabis and everything related to it.
Nowadays, political leaders recognize what scientists long knew: properly sourced CBD won’t get you high. Since 2018, the federal government has defined hemp, which has little or no THC in it (less than .03% to be exact), as a legal plant that is distinct from marijuana. Therefore, hemp-based products like CBD oil don’t fall under national anti-drug laws.
#NationalCBDDay Seek the powerful properties of CBD and experience the wealth of natural relief and recovery. Join others seeking natural support on National CBD Day, and get proactive about your wellness regimen.
National CBD Day is a great day to bring awareness to what CBD (cannabidiol) brings to millions of people annually.
When Change is your only constant, know that your Soul is on a voyage to fulfill its highest destiny. You can cooperate or resist the process, but it is inevitable.
In the midst of huge change, your breath is key. When you are feeling stressed and low in energy, your breath will bring you new empowerment. Stopping to take several deep, long breaths throughout the day allows you to be more relaxed and energized.
Know that all is well. The Grace you have funded to this point will create a life of Abundant Beauty.
Behind everyone’s face is a story, a depth, a history that explains why someone is as she or he is, so listen to the other person’s story.
The longer you listen to the story of another person, the deeper you will eventually understand and recognize a common core: the same roots in the other person as in yourself. There then emerges a sense of unity, and differences dissolve and you reach out a hand to the other person. And when many people reach out a hand to one another, a fertile ground is created and love flows to Earth.
From a higher perspective, a higher level, the existence of order and chaos, is a necessary part of the evolution of life.
Many people have found that they experience a deepening, or a deeper sense of self or beingness, immediately after and as a result of having endured a period of chaos. This is sometimes called “the dark night of the soul,” a term from medieval Christianity used to describe the mental breakdown that many mystics experienced prior to awakening spiritually. There was an eruption of disorder, of destruction. Then, out of that, a deeper realization arose.
And although that can be very painful, the strange thing is, it’s precisely there that many humans experience a transcendence. A strange fact is that it almost never happens that people awaken spiritually while they’re in their comfort zone. Or that they become deeper as human beings, which would be a partial awakening. It almost never happens. The place where the evolutionary shift happens, or the evolutionary leap, is usually the experience of disorder in a person’s life.
And so your life then moves between order and disorder. You have both, and they’re both necessary. There’s no guarantee that when chaos erupts this will bring about an awakening or a deepening, but there’s always the possibility. It is an opportunity, but often, it is missed.
So here we are at this time, and our mission is the same: to align with the present moment, with whatever is happening here and now. The upheaval that we’re experiencing at the present time probably will not be the last upheaval that’s going to come on a collective level. However, it is an opportunity—because although this is a time for upheavals, it is also a time for awakening. The two go together. Just as in an individual life, you need adversity to awaken. It’s an opportunity but not a guarantee and is all part of the awakening of human beings and of planetary awakening.
Every Hanukkah is special, and baby’s first Hanukkah is a milestone worth celebrating. It’s an ideal time to gather the people you love together and connect in a meaningful way.
Tonight we are having a party. Like so many other firsts, this is definitely party-worthy! Whether you choose to host a big bash or simply a small gathering of your closest friends and family, your baby’s first Hanukkah is a sweet, can’t-miss occasion perfect for getting everyone together to celebrate the holiday.
Traditional Hanukkah colors are blue, white, gold and silver, and that gives you a lot of room for when it comes to choosing your plates, napkins and other party decor. Shimmering star-shaped ornaments add sparkle to the room.
Lighting the Menorah is one of the key items in any Hanukkah celebration. Every night for eight days, you’ll light a candle to commemorate the miracle of light. If you already have a menorah, great! Get that out ASAP for tonight and set it up in a prominent location.
One of the gifts that you can get for baby’s first Hannukah is a personalized onesie, romper or shirt that doubles as your baby’s party wear. Other fun Hanukkah gifts for babies include “My First Hanukkah” bibs, personalized rattles, a play menorah, Hanukkah menorah blocks or a special dreidel that your baby will play with for years to come.
