This is me with my love of 6 years on my 50th birthday. I have been so fortunate to walk with this person on this earth. He is my soul mate. I know, because a love like ours, did not come without its serious challenges. Shawn is 21 years younger than me. I asked the universe for a partner and I was clear about my intentions. I was not specific about age, so you can imagine how hard I laughed when I re-read my journals about the man I wanted to attract. Yep it was all there and he fit the description minus the age difference. Fast forward through fires, cancer, raising a daughter, running a business, and much more behind the scenes. We are still in it. Why? Because we are best friends. Our values are aligned and we are committed to personal growth, purpose, and finding joy in the simplest of things. This photo truly captures the bond. I chose to highlight ‘Intimacy’ because Valentines Day is coming soon. In truth, I don’t love this holiday. It has too many idealized pressures that I try to ignore. However, when I choose to honor the feelings of intimacy, the expectation changes form. Intimacy is honest, vulnerable, willing, sexy, sensual, difficult, easy, primal, together, and alone. For me, intimacy is walking daily in nature. Being quiet. Lying in bed with my daughter until she falls asleep. Giving or receiving a massage. Listening to the heart of my lover, without judgment. Taking the time to help an elder. Smiling. Looking a stranger in the eyes. Holding hands. A physical embrace. Meditation. Intimacy is taking time to be with another without distractions. Intimacy is love-making. The quality in any connection strengthens all things. The Intimacy blend combines organic essential oils of black pepper, rose absolute, neroli, vanilla bourbon absolute in organic jojoba oil. A beautiful attractive, intoxicating, sedative, and soothing aroma. Known for its aphrodisiac qualities that impart warmth and sensuality. These essential oils also have naturally occurring compounds that aid circulation, depression, and nervous tension. The Intimacy blend has many uses. It can be worn as a perfume for both men and women. Bring the Intimacy blend to a party or a gathering and anoint your friends. It will arouse the lover in you.
