Traveling Washington 101 North (Temperate Rainforests, Ruby Beach and Cape Flattery)

Though I’ve lived at the bottom of the Washington coast all my life, last weekend was the first time I drove all the way up 101 North. We’ve just about traveled all of the 101 highway now, and Washington’s coast is not much short of Oregon’s. We took advantage of good winter weather and traveled from South Bend, WA, up 101 all the way to the most northwestern tip of the United States, Cape Flattery. Of course we stopped at some destinations along the way, and all of them were amazing, where the temperate rainforests of Washington meet with the…

My Daily Routine For The Soul

About a year ago, I started thinking about my life in a completely different way; to notice the positive things in life and realize that they overcame the negative. I chose to be grateful for all the little things instead of complaining about all the small things that weren’t going my way.

We have taken our sweet time travelling along the Oregon coast, it’s difficult to keep your eyes on the road with all the beauty just to your right. So far, we have stopped at nearly every cape, cove and beach from Cannon Beach to Newport, starting from Haystack Rock, Tolovana Beach, Arcadia Beach, Hug Point, Cape Kiwanda, and Yaquina Head. One of the most beautiful pit stops have been Hug Point, where my…

Good Luck and Good Fortune Meditation

As we finally head off away from family and into our own atmosphere of life, to attract good luck is never a bad thing. We have made some critical decisions within the last couple days, such as leaving our truck behind and relying upon our own feet, bicycles, buses and Uber to spare us the money spent on gas to tow the weight as well as on ground, we believe this will allow us to think more creatively as to how to best get where we need to be. We also have made a difficult decision to travel just to…

Herbs That Promote Physical and Spiritual Healing

Holistic healing is something I’ve been highly interested in all my life. I’ve always believed in the power of nature to heal the body, whether it be food, natural elements you surround yourself with, the teas you drink and the aroma you smell. There are many cultures and religions that use a number of herbs for holistic healing as well as to affect their aura, they are good to add to your teas, to your incents or simply grow in your home or garden. Here are a few natural healing and aura cleansing herbs that I found most appealing:  …
