Creating Beauty Divinely
Wake up sleeping Goddesses!
Are you a magical person? Do you radiate a high vibe kind of beauty and shine in a Light of Truth that no one can ignore? When you walk into a room does your presence uplift others?
Well, let me help you to step it up a notch. There is a whole new level of skincare ready to fortify, empower, strengthen, soothe and protect your largest and most vital organ — your skin. While also possibly allowing “unexplainable” synergistic healing of other aspects of your well-being.
Yes, it is TRUTH!
I’ll let you in on a little secret that A-Listers, alternative healers, elite athletes and every woman who wears high heels must know:
How to Activate Skin Ascension with CBD-infused Skincare Products and a CBD-Enhanced Gut Health Supplement:
You will need 3 ELEMENTS to ELEVATE
The Trinity of Divinely Beautiful Skin:
1. LOTS of Good Water (I like Kangen) 2. Good Sleep (7–8 hours minimum) 3. Pure, highest source CBD-fortified products to balance, restore, fortify and protect.
I’m assuming that we all eat the perfect diet, right? That kind of goes without saying as Hippocrates said: Food is our primary medicine. So what you put in your body, as well as on your skin will reveal itself.
Purity, truth, wisdom…versus stress, junk food and toxins.
But what if you don’t have your own private Keto chef or home delivery service or organic garden? Your most powerful ally will be CBD-infused skin care products and supplements.
Phytocannabinoids: Keys to Total Healing.
It was the FEMALE Cannabis plant that led Israeli researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam, in 1963 to discover the cannabinoid CBD. Then in 1964, the chemical structure of THC was revealed. These discoveries have led to the understanding that humans have a unique and widespread network which seeks balance, or homeostasis, through interacting with phytocannabinoids.
This is known as the Endogenous Cannabis System or ECS..
Phytocannabinoids are prevalent in every living whole food, like mangoes, peppers, spinach, herbs, spices, and more exotic ingredients: kava, chocolate, black pepper. Every plant has a phytocannabinoid system, and we should be absorbing this from foods. But, the proliferation of pesticides and unhealthy additives have greatly reduced our ability to obtain enough phytocannabinoids from our highly processed food.
Your system has been literally craving these important phytocannabinoids because you have not been getting them from your food source — unless you are fortunate to have gone fully organic. Not the easiest choice in our current society.
“Food is medicine. But much of today’s food is not medicine. It is garbage.”
Dr. Jenny Wilkins is an expert on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) who lectures to medical professionals worldwide and has authored a number of papers on the ECS and on cannabinoids.
The Bridge to Your Higher Self:
There are receptors called CB1 and CB2 located throughout our bodies — in our brains, throughout our nervous systems, in our guts and, not surprisingly, in every cell of our skin.
“The endogenous cannabinoid system — named for the plant that led to its discovery — is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. With its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and virtually all of the body’s organs, the endocannabinoids are literally a bridge between body and mind.” Bradley E. Alger, Cerebrum, 2014: Getting High on The Endocannabinoid System.
Bam! Cherry on the Sundae…”a bridge between body and mind.” I know all the yogis and magical peeps out there already know this but it’s nice when science scurries to keep up with divine genius. And I’m going to go one step further and include the spirit. Cannabis is also widely reported to help users reach higher levels of spiritual awareness, open the pineal gland, enlarge the chakras and connect with others more empathically. It works with the divine trinity of true healing: body, mind, spirit.
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a phytocannabinoid from the Cannabis Sativa or hemp plant.
One of the most effective ways to restore homeostasis, or balance, to your whole being is by enriching all the CB1 and CB2 receptors in your ECS with phytocannabinoids. The Cannabis plant in general has been named one of the most medicinal botanicals on the earth and the richest source of phytocannabinoids. It has been used medicinally in ancient Tibetan, Chinese, Egyptian and Indian cultures for thousands of years.
And CBD is the emerging superstar at the moment as, unlike THC, it has no psychoactive effects yet is dramatically effective.
Studies have shown that CBD is effective in these areas:
• Pain reliever • Anti-inflammatory • Nerve protector • Gut Balancer • Blood sugar regulator • Increases blood flow • Reduces seizures • Relieves anxiety
CBD is also ideally suited for a host of other beneficial effects, such as stress relief, enhanced focus and cognitive abilities and even migraine relief.
Back in 2009, a study published in Trends Pharmacol Science, intriguingly suggested the existence of a functional ECS in the skin and implicated it in various biological processes.
“It seems that the main physiological function of the cutaneous ECS is to constitutively control the proper and well-balanced proliferation, differentiation and survival, as well as immune competence and/or tolerance, of skin cells. The disruption of this delicate balance might facilitate the development of multiple pathological conditions and diseases of the skin (e.g. acne, seborrhea, allergic dermatitis, itch and pain, psoriasis, hair growth disorders, systemic sclerosis and cancer).”
And if all this GOODNESS isn’t enough, Cannabis oil also:
1. Contains all 21 known amino acids.
2. Is rich in essential fatty acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6, vital for our internal body and skin. These acids help combat daily problems that our skin is the first to take on, whether it be from inclement weather, sun exposure, dry climates, UV or other daily factors.
3. CBD is an antioxidant that is even more powerful than Vitamin C,E,A or omega 3 fatty acids.
BUT WHAT IS MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE?:
I am currently testing some products from M3 Life that are ELEVATING my being.
Within the first three days of using Indulgent CBD Body Butter — a divinely conjured formulation of CBD and the highest source healing superstars like Shea, Babassu, Olive, Frankincense and Egyptian Myrrh — (I crafted my own organic skincare for several years and these are all stellar super healers that I would have chosen) — a constellation of irritated red bumps on my chest cleared up. I have been struggling with these strange flare-ups as a result of a yet undiagnosed autoimmune disorder. They know what it isn’t but can’t figure out what it is. So, they just kept slathering corticosteroids and prescribing really harsh medicines like Methotrexate. Nothing worked. For years.
Then in three days. Gone. I don’t need to know how at this point, I’m still kind of in awe. Something got balanced or fed, soothed, calmed, or healed very simply.
