I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

Well remember this blog is about being beautiful inside and out. Being beautiful on the inside is important for this will give you lasting radiance that just concentrating on the outside wont do, however it's still important to take care of yourself on the outside too.

I have addressed the important of looking after your skin and its not just how you treat it cosmetically that's important. Your skin is the largest living organ in the body and like any other organ in the body it needs good nutrition and I've discussed as well as that you also have to care for it and be aware that the environment can also cause damage.

Today however I am going to look at quick tips to improve your appearance. Firstly in good light study your face and get to know it. what shape is your face, is it round, long, do you have a big chin? Most beauty guides will tell you how to camouflage the bad bits and sure you can do this by shading out areas you don't like and highlighting areas that are your best features, but all this takes up time and if you are busy and have work to go to or a small baby you simply don't always have the time or energy. So secondly make a note of these bad bits and then forget about them now look at your best features. Everybody has some for most people its their eyes but some will have beautiful cheek bones others will have a lovely shaped mouth, it is these features you are going to play up.

You don't have to spend a great deal of time on your make up routine to make the most of your good bits. Even if you don't have the time to do a whole make up play up your good features. Some staples and essentials for your make up bag are a natural lip coloured pencil, slightly darker than your natural lip colour, lip pencils stop your lip stick bleeding through and keep that well groomed look, a pearlised bronzer, this is multi purpose it can be used as a highlighter/shaper and eye shadow, and a lipstick in a natural pink slightly darker than your lip colour, is should be neither to pearly or too matt and a lip gloss.

If you can providing you have no allergies, have your eyelashes tinted, it will save you masses of time and it tints the pale tips that even dark lashes have.

If your eyes are your best feature make a note of the colour and have an accessory such as earrings, a necklace or even a scarf, with the same colours, subconsciously to onlookers it will draw attention to your best feature by doing this, on lookers are not going to bother looking at your not so good features. Remember too if you are following a healthy diet and drinking lots of water and taking care of yourself mentally and emotionally as well as physically your eyes will shine and radiate that inner beauty and contentment. They are not called 'the windows of the soul' for nothing. 

My lashes
If I don't have the time all I do is just wear false lashes and they are not so difficult to apply as you might think. I will just apply moisturiser and the lashes and thats me done and ready in a few minutes flat. There are so many styles to choose from and I normally cut a pair in half so I get two pairs for the price of one and apply them to the outer lashes only. The key is practise and draw on a line close to the lash edge before you apply the lash it makes it easier to see where to apply them and the adhesive dries and takes on the colour of the eye liner. When the adhesive is dry and it only takes a minute or two apply the liner over the eye lash band and there Voila ready to go.

If you have good cheek bones highlight them by quickly brushing your bronzer over them take it up to the temples you can even gently sweep it over the eyelids and with your finger apply some to your lips and top with bronzer, there done.

One of the quickest way to add colour and lift the face is by lipstick but if this is all you are going to wear in a hurry don't use to dramatic a colour else it will be over powering a lip pencil will stop it bleeding and apply to the out edge of the lips just inside the lip line to slim lips and just outside the lip line to plump them up. Remember too dark shades will make lips look smaller and paler glossy/pearlised/frosted shades will make them look bigger

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
