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.

As you know this blog is dedicated to all about YOU, inside and out, so a beauty blog this time. I have used a number of products from Medik 8, and I can throughly recommend them. Most of Medik 8 products contain Vitamin E and I have been using Vitamin E on my skin since my teens another reason why I like this company. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant in fighting free radicals. I have been using Medik 8's retinol at night for sometime now but they now have this product below, I will keep you updated as to how I get on with it.



  • Encapsulated Retinyl Retinoate - stimulates collagen synthesis and skin cell turnover. Exclusive and patented active, proven to be more effective, yet less irritating than retinol.
  • Vitamin E - quenches free radicals. This powerful antioxidant also has an effective anti-ageing and moisturising effect.
  • Vitamin C - fights UV-induced free radicals. Vitamin C and vitamin E combination synergistically boosts overall antioxidant effect. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid - draws moisture to the skin to help keep it hydrated and supple.
  • Glycerin - acts as an effective humectant to support the skin’s natural barrier function.

       Up to 8x more powerful than retinol For day & night useEven for sensitive skin

GUEST POST from Hannah Do

Today I would like to share with you a guest post from Hannah Do

 "Hannah Do is the founder of Thank Your Skin, a beauty blog dedicated to providing honest skin care advice and information. She aspires to help her readers achieve their most beautiful skin by sharing personal tips learned through both years of experience and thorough research. Check out her latest article about antimicrobial body wash. You can find her on TwitterPinterest and Facebook

Washing your face isn’t enough.

When you have acne-prone skin, you need to be more thorough in cleansing your face. Since having clogged pores is the most common cause of acne, you need to make sure you’re able to get all dirt, makeup residues and excess oil off of your pores.

One way you can do that is by applying a face mask a couple of times each week.

Choose a face mask made with clay since this ingredient can effectively draw out impurities. It can also help tighten the pores to make them less likely to get clogged.

As for the rest of your body, make sure you exfoliate two to three times a week. Wearing tight clothes, sweating excessively and getting exposed to pollution can all cause dirt and sweat to get trapped inside your pores.

You can exfoliate chemically using products with Alpha Hydroxy Acid. This ingredient penetrates the outer layer of the skin to break down or dissolve dead skin cells.

Since it only acts on the outer layer, this is considered a lot safer and more effective for your skin type.

Now, to address the other causes of acne and how you can deal with them, here’s an infographic to guide you.

Sometimes we may have to walk away from situations or toxic people, we may try our best to work at a situation, to listen and support others but sometimes we get no where. 

There is a saying sometimes we have friends for a reason and others for a season and sometimes for a lifetime and the earth keeps turning and nothing stands still for it can't be stormy forever it does come to an end. For only when you have gone through tough times, you can look back and understand why those circumstances came about and why this had to be. 

No matter what, genuine friends stick with you and accept we all have a right to our own opinions and these might not be compatible with one another however the thread of unconditional love never breaks no matter what. 

For those we have walk away from and for those who have walked away from us accept it, they have their own life path to follow we've done our interaction with them let them go now. We cannot interfere in others’ destiny we are not allowed to, for if we are not meant to we will be taken away from them one way or another. Only if we are meant to be will we be there. The fly in this ointment is free will nobody or nothing can make us do anything but we can make the right choices by listening to our hearts for our heart is the the seat of our soul and it knows the truth and the path we need take. One of the hardest if not the most so lessons in life is 'Acceptance ' but when you do ‘accept’ a block will lift from your life you will feel better......until the next life lesson comes along 

"See yourself and others through the eyes of the angels, with unconditional love and acceptance. In this way, you inspire and lift everyone to their highest potential."

I often write during the night as I do automatic writing and channel  philosophy from Spirit and last night this message came through. I had been seeking the answers to a question I had asked and this was my answer.

"It's necessary as we grow more spiritual to undertake challenges, this happens not just in our present lifetime but in ALL our lifetimes, to undertake all kinds of pain. Of all those emotional is the hardest of all for in emotional pain the message and lesson within touches the soul. Physical pain only affects the earthly body and can be solved, there are many advances in medicine to deal with this. Only a kindred soul who has gone through and felt  emotional pain has the skills and experience to empathise and can truly unburden others. 

As you develop spiritually you will do more good by allowing others unburden their emotional pain onto you for you are the key to their release. This undertaking is tough but necessary your time just now is making keys of which there are many. One day you will have a full set. See yourself as a seeker of knowledge. 

The day will come when you are akin to a sponge when you cannot take in anymore, it is then you will have achieved full spiritual growth. Do not fight this. Your lesson is acceptance, know this is so, remember one cancels out the other."

It's a very true saying no one can ever understand unless they have walked a mile in another’s shoes.

Remember too, "Compensation and Retribution for all souls" you will never go unrewarded for those you help

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.
