Cleansing Your Home: Let the Sunshine In

Fire Cleanse

Greetings beloveds,

Spring is here and it’s time to let that fire energy cleanse our souls and homes. Now, let’s not set a fire in the middle of the room or anything. Oh no there’s a much easier way to let the energy of rebirth and regeneration cleanse your space. Here are three examples to get you started.

  1. Open the curtains and let the sun in!
  2. Light candles: Choose spring time scents like lemon, eucalyptus, orange, rose, lavender, peach or gardenia to change the energy of your home.
  3. Experiment through lighting options: check out different types of light bulbs and wattage
  4. Meditate on light moving through each room of your home clearing the energy.
  5. Invite the fire animals to protect and transmute the energy of your home to best serve you.

How do you use the energy of fire to clear your home?

Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo

Partial Lunar Eclipse New Moon in LeoGreetings beloveds,

Whooo you did it. You made it to the end of Eclipse season which coincides with the start of the end of retrograde season. It’s Leo season, the Leo new moon, and a Partial Solar Eclipse, there’s no way you CANNOT be seen this season. So go head and shine beloveds! This eclipse/new moon energy is enhancing our expression, our light, our charm, and our energy. We have been gifted the total lunar eclipse full moon in Aquarius so we could put words to our feelings and our desires. Now it’s time to EMBODY that knowledge. Put it into practice. If you are finding that you are fearful of being seen, start to share more. Start to speak up more. Write more, go live on your preferred social media, raise you hand in a meeting and make a comment, or just go out for a walk with your head held high.

We are clear that through the energy of the moon, Venus in Libra, Uranus retrograde, and the Lion’s Gate that we are connected in every facet. The spiritual and physical realms are reflections of each other. Remember though that reflections can be distorted when the mirror is dirty or warped. So cleanse, cleanse, cleanse so that you can see clearly and present yourself clearly. We also understand that our thoughts, words, and actions must be in alignment or else our manifestations will be off as well.

We may see our unconscious desires and dreams manifest at this time. We will also see deceitful and fraudulent activity at this time. It’s all being laid bare. Have you done the work or are you still lying to yourself? Pretending that you are dedicated to the light when your shadow has taken over completely? Working on manifesting a job or money when you really want to stay home and enjoy the drama of late bills and a low bank account. Focusing on a partner when you can barely take care of yourself. All of these are ways that our conscious and subconscious can be at odds.

Now this does not tell the whole story. There are people and factors that we do not control but many of areas of our lives are completely under our control. Discernment let’s us know what is our work to do and what is external to our locus of control. 

The easiest way to begin to recognize what we truly desire vs. what we may think we desire is through observing the world around us. Take a look at your reality. Your forms of income, your relationships, how you feel about yourself, your spiritual practice, your home, your dreams. All of these are indicators of your subconscious state. Before we reach the gleaning season let’s be real with ourselves about where we are and who we are.

From here we can look at our options to enhance or correct our energy. We live in a limitless universe. There are so many possibilities available to us and yet we stay in the same patterns with little variety in our actions, thoughts, or experiences. This new moon we are aware of what we can do to improve our lives and how to navigate the murky energy of the retrogrades. Can you find another form of income, living situation, or even just change the way you look at what is happening around you? Are you in a state of gratitude or attitude? Find your current state and work on shifting that (or removing things that are not dedicated to your highest good).

Remember though everyone is encountering this energy and they may not be ready to share what they have learned about themselves. Give them time and give yourself time. Practice radical compassion at this time. It is difficult to do this work. We do not make excuses but we acknowledge the work being done and provide the space to heal. Whether that means you focus on yourself and give space to others or provide an umbrella for many, have compassion for the path we are on. Assert your boundaries and know where you stand.

You are the Lion. You are the Strength card. You are healed.

Happy New Moon!

Soul Work: 7 Day Chakra Cleanse

Greetings beloveds,

“You’re hot then you’re cold

You’re yes then you’re no

You’re in then you’re out

You’re up then you’re down”

Katy Perry’s song describes the current state of weather pretty well huh. One day it’s raining and cold the next it’s a sunny windy hot day. Just as the season is going through some birthing pangs, we are as well. It is during this time of great change that it is wise to take a break from our normal routine to adjust. For the soul, developing a ritual or new habit can reset our energetic patterns. A simple way to accomplish this is to clear your energy centers. Here’s my 7 Day Chakra Cleanse for the Soul. Mix and match to suit your tastes/needs. I’ve found that it’s easiest to make a smoothie in the morning with the chosen foods and then eat as you feel called for the rest of the day. The morning smoothie sets the energy for the day and brings your attention towards balancing that energy center. Finish your day with a meditation of your choice.

Day 1- Root Chakra

To Sweeten: piece of chocolate, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, rose, hibiscus, raspberry, dong qui

To Cleanse: Red cabbage, beetroot, radishes, peppers, red onions, tomatoes, chillies watercress, and parsley.

Day 2 – Sacra Chakra

To Sweeten: Oranges, peaches, apricots, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves

To Cleanse: Pumpkin, peppers, carrots

Day 3 – Solar Plexus Chakra

To Sweeten: Lemon, bananas, grapefruit, mango, turmeric, calendula, milk thistle

To Cleanse: Grains, peppers, squash

Day 4 – Heart Chakra

To Sweeten: Green apple, kiwi, lime, pears, green grapes, avocados, rosemary, cayenne, hibiscus, rose, lavender

To Cleanse: Dandelions, kale, celery, cabbage, broccoli, sprouts, green beans, peas, leeks, and spinach

Reflections: Ala: The Fertility and Death Goddess

Greetings beloveds,

Over the past month I have been connecting with the African Goddess of Life and Death Ala. You can read more about her here.

What came most clearly to me during this time was that it was time to clean up house. I don’t mean pick up stuff off the floor and vacuum. I mean clear out your closet, kitchen, car, friendships; everything has to go that is not actively contributing to your life. Goddess Ala said, “you don’t need it, let it go.” That was the lesson I learned from that work. When it’s time, there’s no where to hide or run, you just have to deal with it.

I also found that it was ok to let go when you do not want to. The reason I personally develop relationships with my deities is because I believe that there are energies that I smarter than me. I then, should want to connect to them more to gain their guidance.

This next full moon cycle connects us to the Orisha or Winds, Storms, and Rebirth Oya. So buckle up bubs, it’s about to be a bumpy ride.

Clear and Cleanse: March Introduction

March Planetary Placements

Greetings beloveds,

March is finally here and it’s time for us to begin cleansing our energy before spring. Thus this month we will be featuring articles on cleansing foods, movement, and rituals. To help you get started with this process there will be journaling prompts to get your creative juices flowing.

Also, keep your eye on this space for information on the full moon in Virgo, new moon in Pisces, and another full moon in Libra. We are finishing out the western astrology cycle for the new moons, astrology cycle, and season. This is the perfect time to release and prepare for what we would like to grow over the next year. To help you prepare for this transition, we’ll be sharing the Spring Equinox 2018 readings for the general energy, love, masculine, and feminine.

We’ll also be sharing information on the Goddess of Life and Death Igbo/Nigerian Goddess Ala. I hope you’ll all check in to see what she has to share with us.

Lastly, get ready for a review of the film Alpha and a movie/book review of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle In Time.

This will be great month and I can’t wait to share it with you all.

Resurrection: The Never Ending Cycle of Life

IMG_2699

Greetings beloveds,

I hope that you are blessed and filled with peace. We are starting another portion of our journey this week. There is a calling to clear and integrate with that who we are. All of who we are. Do you run from the difficult portions of your life? Drama, anger, hunger, lack, fear, all the feelings – all the things that hold us back. You can let it fester or you can let it empower you.

Now this might sound just like pretty words but words without action are without power. They are but lovely sounds which COULD change your life but may not. So we put action with words. As such, to practice what I preach I am starting a 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 month, and 6 month ritual practice. Then in 2019 I will move to go through the 1 year practice.

I will share recipes, nutrition, diet, and exercise information to you all as I move through this time. There is so much for us to learn so let us learn it together.

I’ll be starting the three day ritual on Friday, February 9th. See you then.

Goddesses of Life and Death: Madame Pele and the Home

20170824_154539

Greetings beloveds,

Today I found myself connecting with Madame Pele in a way I had not expected. I had a burst of energy I have not had in a few weeks. It seems that as the energy of fire is stoked as we move closer to spring, that our Goddess Pele’s energy grows as well. What is most beautiful is that that energy carries over into her spaces of creation. I cleaned and cleared my home. Cleaning out my closet, washing all the clothes, and my hair. I wrote for the blog for a couple of hours, went for a walk, and cooked dinner. Such as Madame Pele, even when one had been torn apart, we have the power to rebuild.

I would like to note that it is important to be respectful of other cultures and their deities. Although I am honoring and working with Madame Pele, I would recommend that everyone who truly wants to connect with her energy find a practitioner who is connected to her official practices and rituals.

If I have learned anything over the past few days it is that Madame Pele must be respected. Therefore we respect her land and her people.

Full Moon in Cancer: Clean, Clear, and Taking Care of Self.

Full Moon Readings New

Greetings beloveds,

It’s officially the first full moon of 2018 and of course being in the sign of Cancer we are going to be all up in our feels. Alright, let’s get real here. There is something in your life that is crappy right now. You may be having petty conflict with your loved ones, at home, or in situations where there are power dynamics (i.e. every possible situation). In the areas that you can control and influence you can either create a space of heaven or hell. A space of support and love or conflict and stress. At some point you have chosen to either exert power over someone or give power to someone or something when that did not need to occur.

Cancer’s are known for giving more love, energy, and time to those that do not return the sentiment. If you find yourself in partnerships that are not equally supportive, time to cut the cord. Otherwise you will begin to hold negative energy which will impact your life in ways that you may be least expecting it such as your ability to provide for yourself and care for your home. As Cancer, is associated with the home, make sure that you have created a safe space for yourself there. Do not let others take advantage of your giving nature. Create boundaries and stick to them. Even if you write them down and pull them out when necessary.

Alright so how do we not find ourselves in their power conflicts? Connect to Spirit. Simple as that. This theme of spirituality is the main theme of all life. We always have resources and support waiting for us to tap into them. We cannot do that when we are not willing to be open to that information. Meditate, pray, write, sing, play instruments, have sex, talk to your friends, be in nature, take part in sacred movements, whatever is your thing do it. Also, focus on getting your temple right.

  • Clean your house

Have you been slacking on staying on top of your finances? Robbing Peter to pay Paul? Make a budget, set up different bank accounts, and find a financial management system that you can stick with.

Physically clean your home

Wash your windows, dust, clean your floors, wash your walls

Air your pillows and mattress

Recycle, donate, and trash objects you no longer need

  • Clear your energy

Wash your hair

Exfoliate your skin

Receive a manicure or pedicure (from yourself or another)

Sleep

Use air, water, earth, and fire to cleanse according to your spiritual practice

  • Take care of your body

Take time off to relax (walk, bathe, read, write, watch a movie or tv, meet with friends, have sex)

Review your daily eating habits

Move! – Make it a daily priority to move and be active

Happy New Year- May you thrive in 2018
