Crystals for Healing

So many of you enjoyed the post I did about amethyst crystals for protection and had lots of questions about how exactly crystal healing works and where to find and buy crystals, I wanted to share a more in depth about crystals. I was utterly shocked by the positive reaction to my first crystal post! Like I mentioned in the first article, using crystals for healing is something I have done…

My New Garden Containers From EarthEasy.com and a HUGE Giveaway!

My New Garden Containers From EarthEasy.com and a HUGE Giveaway! 18

When we first moved to South Florida this summer, one of the first things I did was research container gardening options. Leaving behind the home we had owned for a long time meant losing my 10×30 garden that I had built with my own two hands. It was gut wrenching. If not for my husband wanting to live by the beach and surf everyday, I would have never left Tallahassee…

Breathe In, Breathe Out

Breathe In, Breathe Out

  One of the most amazing things I have learned from my longtime healer and mentor, Mary Beth McBride, is to simply be with my emotions. Since Penelope arrived, I am much more conscious of my emotions and allowing myself to really feel them. Previously, I had spent a lot of energy in stuffing them down and ignoring them or doing whatever I could to make them go away. I still have plenty…

20 Great Ways to Take Care of Yourself!

20 Great Ways to Take Care of Yourself!

  I am a huge believer in self care. Taking care of yourself is vital to both your health and your ability to care for another person. I spent years wishing I had been mothered and taken care of better, but then it dawned on me that I could just take care of myself. Instead of hoping for the perfect parent I decided to be my own parent. Becoming a licensed…

Raise Your Vibrational Frequency

You are probably wondering what the heck I even mean by vibrational frequency, so let’s back up a minute before we begin to talk about raising it. We are all made of energy. Just like we have physiological systems (muscular, skeletal, endocrine, etc), we all have energy systems. We are not just this physical body. Our presence doesn’t end at our skin, there is an energy field around all of us. And…

How I’m teaching my daughter about Money

How I'm teaching my daughter about Money

  Penelope has always had an interest in her piggy bank, putting in change and dumping them out and doing it all over again. But recently it’s clear she now understands that money can buy you things. I am not as bad as some of my friends, (ahem, Lauren!) but I do buy her a lot of stuff when we are out and about. If we are in line at…

Causes of a Displaced Uterus

Causes of a Displaced Uterus

  This is the year of the uterus here at M+BL! I took a life-changing training back in January about how to put a uterus back into it’s proper place. I also learned about all the health issues that can manifest in women who have a displaced uterus and some amazing self-healing tools like Vaginal Steam Baths and Castor Oil Packs. Today I want to talk about things that may…

They sell an herbal supplement that we are both huge fans of, called Protandim and they just came out with a doggy version! I so wish this had been on the market while my sweet dog Sky was alive. The next dog we have, will be given this supplement from day one, and I…

Confessions of a Reluctant Composter

My husband and I have a certain attitude toward our urban garden. I like to think of it as “simplicity,” but with a little more honesty, I might admit to “laziness” being our gardening style. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed, so we like to keep our homesteading as uncomplicated as possible. Our attitude toward composting is no different. It can be easy and low maintenance and yield good results.…
