What is the meaning of life? Cheese Cake! No really I just had to grab your attention, however the cheesecake in the above photo that I made was pretty awesome!
What makes a happy life?
What is my purpose here?
These are all some questions I ask myself.
Recently a dear friend of mine (ours) passed away very suddenly of a heart attack. We were blown right out of the water, and around here at Aqua Serene there is a lot of water, did you read the latest blog about water? Anyhow, he really “Got It” He knew the answers to those questions and he tried to encourage the rest of us to find them. He may not have consciously known this, but I think he was an Angel here on Earth earning his wings. I think he just heard the bell and Bam! Wings! I sat at his funeral listening to his achievements, how he touched so many people, how he had done so many good things in his 52 short years and I realized this is it, this is what time we are given, let’s do this thing called life! Lets find the answers! He would agree.
I have worn many hats in my 55+ years here on our planet, this time around anyhow. I have a lot of education under my belt and life experience way beyond the average woman my age. I have owned several business, and have worked in many different fields. I have been a daughter, sister, mom, stepmom, wife, ex-wife, girlfriend, significant other, friend, enemy, victim of a crime, mover, shaker, hider, loner, and a target. I have fought for my civil rights (and yours), amended a law, had almost everything I’ve owned taken from me, battled health issues I was supposed to not survive, and more. After all that crap I wonder two things….What the heck was that all about?….What do I do with this (insert situation here) life lesson? I have asked the universe these questions several times over and this is what I finally “heard”.
The meaning of life is…..Love. Big Surprise right?
~Love your family, friends, co workers, strangers, and enemy (yes still I struggle with this one)
~Love the food you eat. (good or bad for you, its about vibration)
~Love your body, it knows, it listens to the critical thoughts only you hear. Think of it as a dear friend, would you say the crap you say about yourself to them? No, of course not, so don’t do it to yourself either.
~Love the little things and the big moments equally.
What makes a happy life?
~Only You can make a happy life, no one or thing can do it for you. Happiness comes from within. It is a choice. I am working big time on this one…so hard to do!
What is my Purpose Here?
~To Be Me, to celebrate the fact there is absolutely no other me here, I am it! Be Real, be unabashedly yourself, don’t make excuses, there is no reason to excuse who you are…maybe what you do…but not who you are. You were made to be authentic, if you don’t follow that then your telling the Creater that He made a mistake…and we know He doesn’t make mistakes. We are all just an unique expression of The Spirit.
If you know me then you know I struggle with each of the above answers on a daily basis, but this I have learned (several times over) A situation will teach you something, good bad or indifferent. The key is to pay attention:
~Embrace the Lesson
~Take the Time
Take the Time: Go outside in nature, take your shoes off and walk on the earth barefoot. You will get the negative ions your body needs to boost your vibration. Look at the wonders of the stars, the sunset, the rain, the patterns in nature, get your hands dirty.
Be Kind: This is different from being Nice, being Kind requires INTEGRITY. Anyone can be Nice. Extend a helping hand, a kind word, a smile, a hug, maybe a meal, a warm blanket.
Be Truthful: Be honest with yourself and with others, unless of course your friend already bought the ugly dress off the sale rack and thinks it’s beautiful, rejoice with her because she cannot take it back.
Be Genuine: Be you, wear what you like, listen to music that makes you happy, stay in your own lane, follow your dream. This is your trip around the sun, others may share it with you but don’t let anyone else control it for you, unless you drank too much to drive, then let them take the wheel to get you home safe.
Extend Grace: This is a big one for me. Grace is kinda like getting something good even if you don’t deserve it. Other people in my life sometimes mistake this for me being a push over, helping when maybe I shouldn’t because someone has not earned help. To me it is the way The Spirit works through us. Extending Grace is important to me, I pay attention the this.
I realize this Blog is not about a product we sell, or a sale or a service we offer, we are a Wellness Center after all and this all goes together. Happiness makes us well, Kindness makes us well, Grace makes us well. We do love to offer a hug, a smile, encouragement, a laugh, a tear or just hold space for you while you work it out. We want you to feel like your off to visit a friend when you come in and see us, even just to pop in and say hi!
I would love to hear your thoughts on how you go about finding Happiness, Purpose and the Meaning of life so leave a comment below! I like comments because it makes me feel like I am not just writing this for the sake of adding words out into cyber space.
“Using the colonic service at Aqua Serene Wellness is a much more pleasant experience than I anticipated. Cindy is professional, thorough, and best of all, has a lovely sense of humor which she uses appropriately. Prices are reasonable, and the surroundings are indeed serene. I highly recommend Aqua Serene Wellness to anyone seeking to improve their health and enjoy the process too!”
Water, Aqua, H20, Ice, Mist, Rain, Drizzle, Flood…. Water comes in many forms and is equated with many verbs as well. Splash, Drip, Soak, Sprinkle, Spray, Drink, Bathe….
Water makes up over 60% of Earth and about 70% of us. H20: 2 Hydrogen Atoms bonded with 1 Oxygen Atom and then you have what is known as an inorganic compound that is the most mystifying and amazing element out there. Water constantly changes, it can become a solid, in the form of Ice, a Liquid and a Vapor. It can move, bend, erode, flood, freeze, come down pouring from the sky, or arrive in a gentle mist which makes my hair look a lot like a huge mop!

Water responds to energy. We know this thanks to all the studies done by Dr. Masaru Emoto He exposed water to music and loving messages, and also the opposite and then froze the drops of water to examine the crystal form it took on under each influence. Facinating stuff to this nerdy girl! I highly recommend checking out his books. In recent years there has been a new theory that water retains memory, and that it can communicate. It has been part of a controversial study by Nobel Prize Laureate Luc Mountagnier Imagine all the stories the water we have used could tell over our life time!
I have been fascinated by water my entire life. I love the ocean, rivers, lakes, creeks and waterfalls. I love a hot bath filled with herbals and salts, hot tubs, floating on a raft, watching a storm roll in and the smell after the rain has stopped. I have always been drawn to water. My job even involves water!
Since water “takes on energy” it is important to be nice to yourself and to others, since we are made up of so much water. Say nice things, listen to joyful music, love people, send good energy to them, got out an put your bare feet on the ground and connect with the earth, better yet the beach!
We have been having a bit of fun here at Aqua Serene Wellness with Vita Juwel Gem Water Bottles. It goes with our theme of water (Aqua) and we love sending out good vibes over here to each other and our clients. These bottles are so beautiful and Dr Emoto’s work was an influence for The Vita Juwel Company, to the point they formed a partnership with HadoLife lab (co-founded by Dr Emoto) and had the gemstone vials analyzed. They did the photographs of the crystal patterns of the water that was placed in the different gemstone bottles. The results were as expected…Amazing!

What is Raindrop Technique?
~~Raindrop Technique involves the amazing power of essential oils that are dropped in a raindrop like fashion onto the back. These oils are also applied to the feet in Vita Flex technique. Raindrop is designed to bring the body back into overall alignment. Often many spinal problems and misalignments are caused by or exacerbated by toxins exposed within the spinal column. The use of essential oils helps minimize exposure within the spine. The oils used in this technique also help support the nervous system and promote healthy tissue.
What Young Living Oils Are Used?
- Valor: A special blend of essential oils that works on the energy alignment of the body. This is the most important oil used in Raindrop.
- Thyme: This is one of the most antiseptic oils, and also may be beneficial in overcoming fatigue and exhaustion.
- Oregano: This oil works similarly to thyme but is more aggressive and may help promote proper immune function, balance metabolism and strengthen the vital centers of the body.
- Wintergreen: This oil contains the same active ingredient (methyl salicylate) as birch and is beneficial for techniques associated with affected bone, muscle and joints.
- Cypress: This is one of the oils most used to support the circulatory system.
- Peppermint: One of the oldest and highly regarded herbs for soothing the digestion. Peppermint has been found to support mental accuracy and soothe the respiratory system.
- Basil: This versatile oil can be relaxing to the muscles and beneficial for mental fatigue.
- Marjoram: This oil is used for calming the respiratory system and soothe the nerves.
- Aroma Size: This special Young Living blend of essential oils may help relax and relieve tight, sore tired muscles, especially those associated with sports-related symptoms, fatigue and stress.
How long will Raindrop Technique last?
The question is often asked, “How long does the application last?” Everyone responds differently. Generally speaking, one’s health, diet and exercise levels and mental attitude are all major factors, One application may last months for one person, but for another it may be necessary to receive the application regularly until the body begins to respond.
Why Try The Raindrop Technique?
1. Addresses imbalances in the Body.
2. Supports the Nervous System.
3. Promotes Proper Structural Alignment.
4. Relieves Minor Discomforts in Back, Muscles and Joints.
5. Supports Emotional Health.
6. Stimulates the Nervous System.
7. Lessens Effects of Toxins.
8. Promotes Healthy Tissue.

How often should I do a detox?
I get this question often from clients and friends and it is always such a conundrum for me to answer. First off I feel like “Detox” has become one of those buzz words/phrases like Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo, Vegan, etc. You get the idea, it is just another way to say DIET.
Let’s examine a little bit about the body and some of the organs of detox, in a very simplified summary.
First we have the Liver, this guy has so many jobs it is crazy! It makes cholesterol, regulates hormone functions, makes bile and deals with the stuff we like to ingest like medications, chemicals, sugar, alcohol to name a few. Have you ever said the phrase after a night of partying too much; “I think my check liver light just came on” I swear there have been times in my youth (and let’s admit still once in a blue moon) if my liver could have climbed out of my body it would have slapped me in the face and said ENOUGH ALREADY! Did I mention I am not perfect!
The Kidneys….those bean shaped things in your back that filter about 45 gallons of blood a day! They filter out what is needed and not needed, then they send the stuff we don’t need to the bladder and what we do back into the blood. They also help your body maintain proper pH among other things.
The Skin…Lets think sweat. Your body sweats out water, minerals, urea and ammonia to mention a few things. It is good to work up a sweat! Just remember to hydrate!
The Lungs….When you breathe in air travels to the these grape like looking clusters that are called Alveoli (NOT Areola which will forever haunt me that I accidentally said that word instead of Alveoli while teaching the respiratory system to my anatomy class. To my credit they are located in the general vicinity of the lungs!) anyhow I digress…the Alveoli exchange gasses for your body, they grab the oxygen and bind it to the blood and the toxic gas of carbon dioxide then moves to the outside of the body.
The Gut… The gut wall is designed as a barrier to block harmful things from leaking into your body, that is if it is intact and working like it should. It is also designed to move things along (peristalsis) and on down the line to the toilet. If it is not functioning properly then things either escape out of the compromised barrier or they hang out longer than they should decomposing making more of a toxic dump site. In that case your body gets to reabsorb and deal with it…again. Pooping is important!
So how often should I do a detox? You do it daily just by being alive! The better question is: “How often should I support my body so it can do it’s job?” Daily! By drinking enough water, eating food that is nutrient dense and organic, exercise, working up a sweat, do deep mindful breathing, dry brush your skin, be mindful of what cosmetics and soaps you use, go poop, more than once a day would be ideal! Our bodies are pretty amazing and it’s the only place we have to live in while we are here so the check engine lights are important to pay attention too.
At Aqua Serene Wellness we offer digestive consultation and support, organic skin care, traditional skin care, colon hydrotherapy, far infrared energy therapies, massage by Leslie, and Diana, Acupuncture and a wide range of supplemental support as well as organic skin care products. We are located in Carmel Indiana.
The Skin Has Rhythm…
“What! My skin can dance better than I can?” Why yes it can and it does! Coming from a girl growing up in the 60”s and 70’s dancing was something I learned from practicing in front of a black and white console TV in the living room. I watched the weekly episode of American Bandstand, my moves were pretty awkward and goofy! My friends and I danced to 45 and 33RPM records that skipped if we moved too fast on our makeshift stage. We thought we had rhythm anyhow!
Later on in life I like to think the dancing got a bit better. Little did I know back then we all are designed with rhythm. Our breathing, circulation, hormonal functions, digestion, all the biological functions have a rhythm. We are all a part of nature which has it’s own rhythms, Light and Dark, Warmth and Cold, Stillness and Movement. It is the “Dance” of Mother Nature and she dances better than any of us!
Our skin performs a plethora of jobs. First off it keeps our insides…inside! It regulates temperature, absorbs Vitamin D from the sun, protects us from the elements, disease and heals up pretty much all by itself. Although it does all these things by it ‘s own nature we need to pay attention when it is asking for help. Every blemish, rash and wrinkle is a calling out for us to pay attention to what our skin and body needs.
Our skin renews itself every 28 days, this is the Shedding and Renewal Rhythm. It acts different in the daytime then at night when it regenerates, this is our skin’s Daily Rhythm. The Dr. Hauschka products we use here at Aqua Serene Wellness encourage this rhythmic approach. They are even manufactured according to the rhythm of nature. The “mother” tinctures are exposed to Light and Dark, Warmth and Cold, Stillness and Movement. Their products also have the most strict organic certifications in the world!
During the day we suggest the use of day creams and oils to protect the skin and to pamper it, at night removal of makeup and day creams is essential, we discourage oily products, using only water based products designed for night time to let our skin breathe and regenerate.
In our signature Holistic Dr. Hauschka Facial Treatment we go even further into the rhythm communication just below the skin by stimulating the lymph. From head to toe we trigger the balancing stimuli to encourage harmony and vitality. This is yet another dance…that I am actually certified to do!

What is the SOQI Spa? To us here at Aqua Serene it is about the best Power Nap around! Our clients love to come over and have a SOQI session on their lunch break or at the end of the work day! We often pair it with our other modalities, before a colonic session, or a massage. It is warm and relaxing, the music calms your busy mind and you find yourself drifting off, your daily “busy mind” gets a break! The official description is below for all you Need to Know the Science people (I confess I am one of those!)
The SOQI Bed is a piece of equipment developed to revitalize and refresh the body. The SOQI Bed incorporates natural therapies and high quality products using a unique “Multiple Energy Approach.” Combined with an ergonomically designed massage table bed and spa music, the SOQI Bed is a state of the art approach to relaxation, rejuvenation and vitality!
Motion Energy – Proper circulation is vital for any living creature to thrive. Motion energy stems off of the concept of full body oxygenation. That is, delivering oxygen to all parts of the body internally so that every cell is functioning at optimal levels. Full body oxygenation can be achieved through exercise as well as our revolutionary heavily researched Chi Machine…
Thermal Energy – All living creatures in one way or another need the sun’s rays to survive. We use the natural energy from the sun to power our bodies. Our concept of Thermal Energy utilizes a form of infrared known as Far Infrared. NASA utilizes infrared in much of their research. Hospitals use Far Infrared on babies with Jaundice and other skin disorders.
Music Therapy – Research suggests that Music Therapy lowers heart rate, and blood pressure. Combining relaxing music with Thermal and Motion energies mix well together offering you the most relaxing experience of your life!
