In medieval times, grave looters and thieves would cover themselves in an herbal oil blend to prevent themselves from getting sick with the plague. This blend has been passed down through generations to increase immunity function in the body. The formula is known as thieves oil due to it’s origin. Thieves is still used today to help boost your immunity, and recommended by many aromatherapists. Many people report seeing improvements staying well, avoiding seasonal viruses.
Making your own thieves is simple and inexpensive. Don’t get caught up in a multi-level marketing scam paying extra for an oil formula made for you. For the cost of one bottle of thieves, you could make many formulas yourself. I really like Aura Cacia and Now brands.

Store your oil in an amber bottle to keep it safe from UV light. Thieves, like any essential oils, should not be ingested.
Looking back at Martin Luther King Jr.’s life work shows a man who was empowered by his revolutionary spirit. As many people take his day of remembrance as an opportunity to post flowery quotes, I feel his most crucial statements get overlooked. Dr. King was truly a revolutionary who would act to change an unjust world. He once said, “Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism.”
We still deal with many issues today that Dr. King fought, which many of us have gotten complacent over. Recent census data shows that half of the U.S. population qualifies as poor or low income, with one in five millennials living in poverty. In 2011, 16.7 million children lived in food insecure households. A 2013 UNICEF report ranked the U.S. as having the second highest relative child poverty rates in the developed world. Would Dr. King think that is acceptable?
Many mainstream society members blame poor education or drugs and alcohol on the homeless. Society often blames the homeless for not “getting a job”. Did you know that 44% of homeless people are employed? We can throw the homeless man a dime, or we can start to look at the big picture, like Dr. King would.
We live in a financial landscape where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Such a small group of people control most of the world’s wealth and resources. Our societal abundance is being choked by the greedy few. We keep giving the majority of our wealth to corporations as mom and pop shops are closing their doors. Where we spend our money truly dictates our financial landscape. If you want a revolution, start by revolutionizing your life. Live closer to work. Stop paying so much in gas. Spend money at a local shop versus a place that outsources to make their shareholders richer. Does your company help or inhibit this cause?
Today, take the opportunity to re-evaluate the life you lead and the world in which you live. Which structures need to be reconstructed to better suit everyone and everything that shares this planet? Don’t be complacent when you see others suffer. In Dr. King’s name, take action to make the necessary changes. One man did so much and had a profound impact on all of us. Imagine a world where everyone led their life by their own revolutionary spirit.
As we all discover our inner-connectedness, it becomes more apparent that the divine is in everyone that you could possibly meet. A higher expression of the self is to show the divine aspect of you. We all have a choice whether to operate from our higher self or our lower self.
As the world starts to consistently operate from the higher self, miracles will not only happen through us but to us. In truth, our true nature is to be loving. To be authentic is to allow the divine to shine through your life. Synchronicity is the norm for a person operating from their higher self. Be a living example of divine love.
