Support a small business: Sipology

What do you think of Sipology?

Do you drink tea?

I had been drinking tea daily until we moved off grid last year and found out how much power it took to boil water. So, I was intrigued and open to learning if there was any new way that I could have tea without boiling water.

A friend of my daughter does these Facebook Live videos where she makes tea, kombucha and such.

So, I reached out to my daughter’s friend and got the name of her friend who sells tea online. Meet Christina. (Click here to visit her Facebook page.)

So far, I am really enjoying room temperature or cold matcha tea! I bought several flavors of Sipology tea from Christina (her website) and am excited to say, I love them all! (They have individual packets of matcha tea in various flavors that you can try before buying the larger containers too—and I love that!)

Sipology offers herbal teas and essential oils to assist our natural health and healing lifestyle.

Tea sure brings me back to my personal state of ease and calm I had been missing since our move. Ah, just to sit and BE with a cup of tea. Yes, it’s the little things in life sometimes that bring the greatest joy.

I also really like that the flavored tea I bought only use Stevia as a sweetener, so each cup only has 5 calories! Hehe! Win-win! ❤️😉

Why buy tea (or anything else) from a small business?

No one should be worked to death so billionaires, bankers, insurance companies, lawyers, shareholders and government can profit.

Those institutions are the real pyramid schemes, not the MLMs, Direct sales, network marketing and party plan businesses.

Thus, I support small businesses. I am the change that needs to occur to shift the balance of power back to the PEOPLE.

Here’s what I do. I vote with my dollars by supporting small businesses every month, such as:

Where do you shop?

I support businesses that are co-operatives (co-ops), employee-owned, etc. and quit supporting anything (or giving to charities) where CEOs were outrageously profiting. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

My Primal Life Organics journey continues

Self Care, Anti-aging (or “sage-ing”) with Primal Life Organics

I have added some new products by Primal Life Organics to my self care and anti-aging or “sage-ing” routine. 🌅💦🌱

I don’t wear makeup (haven’t for about 10 years anyway), but I thought I’d try Primal Life Organics face foundation makeup for whenever we get the opportunity to perform our music out “LIVE” again.

Primal Life Organics natural foundation makeup

I love that these come in sample sizes, as that is all I will use in a couple years! Ha! And they allow you to add as much or little as you need to achieve the coverage you want, wet or dry!

You can also mix and blend these colors to get the perfect color for you! Sure to compliment your skin tone, and so easy!

Primal Life Organics foundation in light, medium. and dark colors

I also really love Primal Life Organics’ Stick Up™ natural deodorant! I actually only have to apply it every other day or so! (Quite inexpensive in my particular case.)

Primal Life Organics Stick Up™ Natural Deodorant

See what a fan I am of natural products? Haha! In the next pic, I show the near powder consistency of this deodorant and that it makes it easy to apply!

I’m always using natural products to help my body detox and restore balance (as just living in today’s world is toxic on many levels)! 😉

Primal Life Organics Stick Up™ Natural Deodorant

It’s so easy to apply, and when massaged in, gives you a bit extra self care to your underarm lymph nodes! (As you know, our lymph nodes and entire lymphatic system will enjoy and use all the help we can give it!) ❤️

This is what I call a double duty natural remedy—when you get double (or more) benefits from one product!

My weight loss journey continues with the assistance of Primal Life Organics’ weight loss system, Weight Loss Naturally Supplement. (As shown from their email to me below):

Love my naturally curly hair with this aWEsOMe product

Salty hair texturizer from Primal Life Organics

My naturally curly hair stays in bouncy style with this texturizing spray by Primal Life Organics on wet hair.

Like I stated in a previous blog article, living Off Grid, I’ve made a lot of adjustments and sacrifices, like not having hot water! So, when I wash my hair (once a week), I don’t want to use much on it to maintain bouncy curls. Primal Life Organics has hit a home run with this product though! I love it! My curls are defined, and look fantastic, even the next day (after sleeping), and for several days! Game changer for me! And it’s EASY!

The quickest and easiest way to wash your hair is by massaging in this Dirty Poo dry shampoo by Primal Life Organics:

Dirty Poo dry shampoo and Salty hair texturizer

Helps reduce oily hair and scalp between washings!

Since moving Off Grid last year, I’ve had to adjust to only washing my hair once a week! (I used to at least wet my naturally curly hair each morning in the shower, so it could air dry and set right.)

Dirty Poo dry shampoo
Long list of ingredients (see whole list on Primal Life Organics website)

So, Primal Life Organics product, Dirty Poo, is so handy to help keep my hair and scalp less oily all week! I’m really grateful for it! Also, it doesn’t have any scent and isn’t heavy or gritty. I know some people don’t like scented hair care products. I also found Dirty Poo very easy to use.

So, when I wash my hair (once a week), I want a setting spray that works that keeps my curls bouncy and “set” for longer than just one day. Primal Life Organics has hit a home run with this product! I love it! My curls are defined, and look fantastic, even the next day (after sleeping), and for several days! Game changer for me!

Mood

Yes, I had gained 20 pounds in 3 months due to being stressed and depressed—mood can trigger all kinds of hormonal changes… plus, all the self sabotaging-thoughts like, “we’re all gonna die, so I’ll eat what I want” that seem to crop up when all you hear is doom and freaking gloom crap! But, thankfully, when I got my head back on straight, I released all 20 pounds in about 4.5 months.

Now, I feel so accomplished and motivated to lose the rest of the excess weight I’ve carried on my body for over 20 years! —Read more about what I’m doing here: https://sheilamurrey.net/2020/12/20/integration-diet/

2020: Review of a Challenging, Adjusting, and Healing Year

2020 Year in Review: Challenging, Adjusting, and Healing

I was sooo very fortunate to go on a Yoga cruise (facilitated by Cindy Bartz of Tampa, Florida) in January, just after my birthday. Yep. A self-care gift to ME!

Two of my girlfriends went with me and we had a blast! One brought another friend, so the four of us could pal around. It was aWEsOMe! Little did I know then how much I was going to need Yoga, breathwork, and every tip I picked up there during the days, weeks, and months to come.

In Cozumel Mexico Jan 2020

2020 has been an emotionally turbulent year for me. Physically, we moved from Merritt Island, Florida on Feb. 29th, and then, days later, the emotional rollercoaster of the COVID-19 virus began (with all of its associated fear mongering, misinformation, disinformation, judgmental attitudes, lockdowns, etc. And we don’t even watch the news!), but I hear enough from my own circles of influence.

We had all kinds of plans for 2020. But most got canceled or postponed, and we couldn’t even explore our new area either. And that all set me up for depression, weight gain (and thankfully now, weight loss), along with some extremely tense and emotional days (as we fumbled with adjusting to off grid living).

Minding My Energy became like a cosmic joke—played on ME! (This is a t-shirt design I made in 2019, way before I knew I would have to literally manage our energy when we moved “off grid”!

In hindsight, we shouldn’t have tackled moving off the grid this year, but we really had NO IDEA how cRaZy challenging it would be, or that something called COVID would occur.

My son on the roof of our 5th wheel to cut tree branches so “we’d fit” into our RV off grid spot.

On the other hand, we’re now, considered “preppers,” and fairly self-contained (and ready) to handle whatever comes our way! Haha!

Awakening

I did manage to make it to emcee the Awakening Into the Sun outdoor yoga and music festival the first weekend in March (it’s an annual event). But even that weekend presented issues for me.

Crystal Bay hotel in St. Pete (where we usually stay), was booked solid, so I chose a different hotel near the park and I could walk to the event. That turned out to be the wrong choice for me, because between the downtown traffic, and the fact that it got cold that night and the window wouldn’t close in the hotel room bathroom, I was cold and couldn’t sleep. And though I complained to the front desk, no one came to fix the window.

I love doing emcee work, and the festival was aWEsOMe, but only two of my friends showed up, and there seemed a somber tone hanging over the crowd. We were at a new park this year, much larger, so I remember thinking that was all it was, but just 3 days later we would all become acutely aware of what was going on.

Awakening is such a good word to use to describe all of the challenges I was to experience this year as I managed my own Energy (in myriad ways), and dove into my shadow to shake up the things within me that needed clearing, healing, and balancing.

And while I’m getting there (working my own Integrated Spiral program), I am not as fine tuned as I desire—yet. Maybe I never will be, but that is my work and mission for the rest of my life.

Canceled travel plans

This year, what with all the Stay Home orders, and our secluded living arrangement (though we are camping on the same property as my son), the announcement about COVID, the closing of restaurants and shops, and cancellation of our travel plans, took a toll on my psyche.

My son shaved my head about a month into our living here. No way could I deal with wearing a mask (and not have the rubber bands from in tangle in all my naturally curly hair)! Plus, I felt like I wanted to hang in solidarity with two friends who had lost their hair due to chemo treatments to treat cancer. A show of gratitude and support for them.

Shaving my head also gave me one less thing to think about, as my workload doubled through the summer months too, which didn’t help my stress levels.

List of plans that were canceled or postponed:

  • Alania’s Gainesville retreat (prepaid)
  • SoulTreat (prepaid / postponed to Oct 2021)
  • Rock Your Gift (ticket had been included in price of coaching package – cancelled)
  • 40th High School reunion
  • Trip to my home state to lay my parent’s remains to rest (which was to occur the week I went home for my HS reunion).
2020: Challenging, Adjusting, and Healing

Family comes to Florida

We were lucky to get to see my husband’s sister and her husband this year! So many people decided not to travel. And many campgrounds closed for awhile, which made those who thought about traveling wary (and weary)!

They booked their camping trip within a 30-45 minute drive from our place, and finding it wasn’t easy, but we made it there, and enjoyed our visit immensely. They also camped at another campground outside of St. Augustine, and we drove over there too for an early evening and dinner. That was a lovely park (and much easier to find than the first one had been. Dang GPS that only lead to a back entrance, which was gated and locked with no attendant).

As well, my husband’s twin brothers decided to drive down to see us for a few days this summer, so that was nice too! And though we couldn’t find much to do (one of the botanical gardens we visited had most of their trails closed), at least we got to sit and visit, eat a few meals together, and watch Animusic on DVD in our RV.

Visiting friends in Florida

When professional offices reopened, we took a road trip to Merritt Island, so I could have oral surgery on one of my front teeth (which I had put off for more than a year—more about that here).

We were so starved for social interaction (and missed good friends there), that even with my gums bleeding, we gathered with several friends for two nights out at our old favorite hangout.

Later in the year, in December, we took a short road trip to attend one of my best friends Christmas party. I really needed the emotional reassurance by then. But that was it, as far as travel was concerned for us this year.

Making new friends

I was almost remiss in mentioning that we made new friends this year—our neighbors Aaron and Abby! And as well, my son’s girlfriend—who hung out with us most weekends! Rachael really kept me sane, I think!

And we often hung out by a bonfire on weekend evenings, which helped us let go of the stress from the work week. ❤️😉

🔥 Bonfire 🔥

Sacred Celtic Journey

We are sure glad we went to Ireland, England, and Scotland last year! I doubt we’ll be flying anywhere ever again from all the restrictions that may be put in place. For more about our incredible 2019 trip, read all 3 parts, beginning here.

I am also so thankful when I look back on my winning an ENTRY into the neolithic burial tomb Newgrange chamber for the 2019 Winter Solstice sunrise on Dec 18th!!! Because no one was allowed in the tomb this Winter Solstice! That means, I was one of 60 people (picked from 30,861 applications) to be IN that incredible chamber for the last Winter Solstice (hopefully it will reopen to guests soon).

Here’s to a better 2021!
My Newgrange triple spiral pendant from Ireland, hanging on my mom’s gold chain with my butterfly 🦋 from my bestie since grade school, Doris.

I joked with a friend recently, that if I didn’t know better, I would think I brought COVID back to the USA from Ireland because I had a cRaZy flu days after returning from Ireland last year!

Looking back, I feel the Winter Solstice that didn’t shine sunbeams into the chamber was meant to warn me of the tumultuous year ahead. And that I would be working on my shadow self this year—and I have. ☯️

Seeing my girls

One of the outings I missed the most this year, was my annual trip to see my daughter and granddaughters in New Hampshire. I love them sooo much! And I miss hugging them, taking the oldest to painting sessions, playing games and dolls, and simply smelling their hair (it’s a mommy and grandma thing, I bet)!

Due to COVID, my daughter and I made the mutual decision it would be best for us not to travel and visit. (Mostly due to her wanting to protect me, since I have had a history of asthma—cleared since 2005, and to safeguard my husband, who’s over age 65). But, PROTECT is still a word I meditate on, because I don’t believe one can protect themselves or anyone from everything. Not really. I mean, Life is terminal. If we aren’t living it, what’s it for anyway? ❤️🦋🌀

Thankfully, I get to video chat with my granddaughters often (the eldest one—almost daily), though not getting together with them this year has greatly impacted me emotionally.

Online classes

Because we’ve been staying home, I’ve had more time to participate in online groups and programs. I’ll share a few next:

I participated in a couple short programs offered on Facebook by Alania Starhawk, Janine McJannet, Robin Quinn Keehn, Cheryl Chaffee, Patti Stevens, and Michelle Howe. I’ve linked to their site or programs, so you can get more information as desired. I highly recommend all of these ladies and the work and gifts they share.

I am currently participating in VShred and Activ5 exercise routines. I have been sooo impressed about both of these programs, in particular because of their associated smartphone apps. Read more about that here.

I completed my one year business coaching program that I had bought into last December for my husband and I to figure out how we could work together to showcase his original music, travel, and combine his genius talent, experience, and education with mine. We setup MurreyMakers.com and I include his soft guitar playing within my Integrated Spiral self-coaching, small group transformational program too.

Since I gained weight during the COVID lockdowns, I was offered a really effective diet program through my health insurance. It’s called Omada, and it’s helped me walk more, eat less, improve my mindset and do better with intermittent fasting too! No more counting calories!

Experimenting to find what works

From sitting and gaining weight (going down the rabbit hole, emotional spiral, and my own shadow), I discovered (or uncovered) methods that helped me beat nighttime snacking (hint: essential oils, homemade tinctures and tonics, Activ5, doing my nails and applying Color Street polish, as well as working on creative hobbies); begin and maintain a daily habit of walking outside; and improve my mindset (Everything Resolves to Gratitude).

Winning!

Mid year, I began to think my winning streak was over, but then I won again! It may not sound like much, but I won a $50 gift certificate from author JJ Virgin and stocked up on healthy foods from her website: https://jjvirgin.com

Then, I participated in my Robin’s weeklong Facebook challenge, The CLEPTO Code™ Challenge (her group is called, Overdoers Anonymous), to pick up some new strategies on how to not overcommit.

And get this! The grand prize winner of that challenge, Miles Eddy, gifted me with part of his prize! A $100 gift card! What a complete surprise! We all got so much out of her challenge (aside from the prizes), and I know it’s going to give each of us a boost of confidence to grow and shine in 2021!

You can be a winner too!

Comment on this post to receive a complimentary gift from me to participate in my new transformational self-coaching program!

This small group program helps one find emotional balance and help foster better relationships via improving communication skills. Read more about it here.

I put this new program together to help others find balance because I’m an empath. But, here’s the thing. I thought, until very recently, that I had to fix or save others in order to ease the pain I felt. Not true. I have to process, clear, and lighten my feelings first! Ha!

First come, first serve. Normally $181 for 4 weeks of small group work (to include individual messages and group calls on Zoom).

I have been using Ashley Black’s fascia blasting tools for a few years, and my arms and legs have never looked better or felt smoother! I have also greatly improved the look and feel of my face, jawline, and neck! ❤️

Understanding what fascia is and does

I did a little demo of the face blaster tool during a one hour Live video on my Facebook health biz page here, if you’d like to see:

Tip #2 – Add Hydrate to your water

To ensure I was hydrating adequately, as well as improving my sleep (falling asleep faster–within 15 minutes of taking this supplement!), and helping my body metabolize my food better, I have been taking Primal Life Organics’ Weight Loss. Naturally

Currently, Primal Life Organics sells Hydrate in a package, which includes one bottle of their Sleep supplement, one bottle of Hydrate, and one bottle of Metabolize. They do offer Sleep separately, but you will need to order the package to get Hydrate. Sign up for their emails, or follow their highly educational Live videos on Instagram and Facebook (to keep up with all the latest news from them).

I have another article in progress about my weight loss after 30 days using this weight loss system. 😉 Stay tuned!

Whiten your teeth with light!

Whiten your teeth (and improve gums) with LED light!

Your teeth are one of the most prominent, most visible, and most telling areas of your appearance—and the one people tend to notice FIRST before anything else… why not whiten their appearance and gain the confidence to smile bigger!

Primal Life Organics Real White Teeth Whitening System

That’s no exaggeration! After having a front tooth extracted a couple of months ago (no choice as the tooth previously had a root canal, which weakened the root, and the root broke horizontally—straight across), people would question me within seconds of seeing me, “What happened?” That’s right. Whether friends or family saw me in person or on a Facebook Live video, they asked. And I was shocked at how often people responded in that way.

So, the one thing you can do to improve your facial appearance (after smiling), is to improve your teeth. And whiter teeth are noticed. Yes, whiter teeth and healthy gums are anti-aging too!

Primal Life Organics Real White Teeth Whitening Device

Primal Life Organics took the pain out of teeth whitening! Witness the whiteness of your bright smile and feel your confidence soar!

Now is your chance to impress your dentist, boss, significant other, and friends. Finally, you can be your own whitening dental hygienist!

Restore a whiter smile!

Using this LED light Real White tooth whitening system is grand self-care, and I do consider light as a natural remedy. (Wink!)

Primal Life Organics Real White Teeth Whitening System

Primal Life Organics Real White Teeth Whitening System will have you smiling more with bright white teeth and fresh breath!

The NEW REAL WHITE TEETH WHITENER offers the following:

  • double the lights (16 red/16 blue)
  • THREE treatment options (red, blue, red & blue)
  • a built-in timer

I’ve been using the corded version of Primal Life Organics red/blue LED, but am upgrading to the NEW REAL WHITE TEETH WHITENER. Mostly, I love that I can choose the lights (red or blue—or both), that I want to be ON, depending upon my need, and that I can use this device untethered to my phone or computer—no cord!

This teeth whitening device is cordless, rechargeable… and 100% portable!

Using Primal Life Organics LED tooth whitening system empowers you to improve your dental health and take it to the next level with ease.

Dave Asprey, of Bulletproof says, “Upgrade your dental health to an Oralgasm… yes, it’s a thing!”

Crystal love!

I love crystals!

I can’t believe I haven’t written an article about crystals, until now! I have been collecting articles about crystals for awhile, and have books also, such as:

Crystal Bible

Crystal Bible 2

Crystal Bible 3

Not that these are the only books about crystals that I have, but they are the best for me to have in paperback form, as a full-time RVer (which, means we live in an RV = little space). In fact, I only order ebooks now. I have more than enough paper books—more than I could read in the rest of my life!

From the ground

I’ve had a thought for years that my wealth is “in the ground.”

Ever since my hubby and I watched a show on TV about this place where ine can dif in the dirt for diamonds, rubies, and such, I have wanted to go to Crater of Diamonds state park in Arkansas.

Would you like to go dig in the dirt with me? Please comment and share your crystal digging experiences! 💎

Difference and Ego

I love crystals and what they have to teach us about Ego; each are imbued with different gifts from the earth, yet one is not superior than another. Each type of crystal offers different aspects of beauty, brilliance, and energy.

To quote a beautiful like-minded friend,

At a higher vibration than arrogance (which only masks low self esteem), true Humility opens one up into a compassionate community supporting healthy self esteem, valuing each equally, enjoying ALL as we are all a part of each other, coming from the same creator source in Love.

Beverly McCaw

Healing mind and body

As I wrote previously (here in the comments, and here), I’m integrating crystals (minerals) more and more into my daily life. In particular, I’m using crystals to help ease negative energy out of my body when I feel anxious watching certain emotional movies or shows.

And the last time I went to the dentist (oral surgeon) to have a broken root canal tooth removed), I held a rose quartz pocket crystal to help me through the experience—and it did)!

Pocket rose quartz heart crystal

Energy follows thoughts and intentions. Thus, I allow my excess emotional charge to drain into whatever crystal I am holding. I also partner with rounded and pointed crystals to work on my acupressure points at the same time! Win-win! ❤️🌀💎

Crystal shapes best for acupressure work

Crystal Mantra

I love looking at crystals because like people’s opinions, every crystal is multifaceted.

Whenever I feel rattled, I say to myself, “I am multifaceted. No one can see ALL of my facets at any one given time. Turn, turn, turn.”

My intention is that I hope my words bring you ease, joy, and peace. OM ❤️🦋🌀🙏

Month 1 Results from using Primal Life Organics’ Carrot Seed Facial Package

Results from use of the Carrot Seed Facial Package from Primal Life Organics

From my previous article where I introduced you to Primal Life Organics’ Carrot Seed Skincare Package, this is the follow up I promised:

WOW! A carrot seed oil face cleansing and moisturizing system that IS truly wonderful for any type of skin!

Ease of consistent use

I am NOT a “beauty routine” kind of gal, but this system was sooo easy to use and integrate into my morning routine! It was actually enjoyable!

Starting from the first day, I was eager to wash my face with the luxurious carrot seed oil cleanser. I looked forward to its bubbly creamy consistency every morning, so that prompted me to continue using it day after day!

Skin improved

My skin is aging and sensitive, so I was excited to experience the rejuvenating properties of this carrot seed oil skin care from Primal Life Organics.

I started noticing a difference in my face pretty quickly!

  • Skin texture improved
  • Skin stayed smooth
  • Skin stayed hydrated all day (no dry or flaky areas!)
  • Age spots began to fade, or become less noticeable

Before and After

I know it may be difficult to see the difference in my skin from these pictures, but I can see it and FEEL the difference!

Note: Disregard the redness beside my nose from my eyeglasses. And the lighting is different in these photos.

Before (left) and After (right). After 30 days of using the Primal Life Organics carrot seed oil system.

If you want to experience any of these benefits for yourself, here’s how to order:
