"It is not a question of your environment nor those around you...To be swayed by such externals is pointless. It all comes down to one person: you. What matters is that you become a brilliant beacon, shining with joy and happiness, and live your life with confidence and courage. If you shine with radiant light, there can be no darkness in your life." || As the new moon cycles into Leo tonight this is the perfect time to reconnect with your own heart. It is the time to reconnect with our light, our luminescence, what lights us up. It is the time to be vulnerable and have the courage to do so. We are on a journey of the heart, revolutionizing our individual essence to be its fullest. For we are not afraid of failure, we are afraid of excelling beyond belief. These are themes I have been working with extensively in the last two weeks. And I hope we all can harness the energy and take a moment tonight or in the next three days after this glorious new moon to set our intentions for our heart, our light. Shine on lil babies, shine on ✨

A wall of my favorite teas! I have been wanting to try the nitro teas at @smithteamaker for a while now and I'm so happy I did! That Nitro Chai is on point ☝🏻✨

On this one particularly sad day, a wise high priestess and a starperson met and headed West. Whimsically in search of an adventure, while also wanting to be home bodies, they stumbled into a strange land known as the "Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club". Disappointed at the lack of fancy wine and the blatant display of Heinz ketchup, they decided to leave, only to bask in the golden sun and mock those who play golf one last time before returning home to nature to learn of where they come from. || Blessed to have been able to connect with this cosmic queen 💜

I love traveling, but there is nothing more grounding for me than being and creating in my own kitchen. I've just finished making this delicious jug of almond milk! Being dairy free for some may seem like a limitation, but for me it's been a world of opportunity for new creations. Before going dairy free and gluten free, I had seasonal allergies, digestive issues, malabsorption problems, and chronic fatigue. Since making these dietary changes, not only is my digestion improved, my energy levels are better, and my overall health and metabolism have improved. A staple substitute for milk has been making almond milk. Almonds are high in Omega 3s, which promote youthful skin and hair, support endocrine function--thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive, and help with cardiac function. They also are full of Magnesium! In Chinese Medical Nutrition, almonds are warming, slightly sweet, qi moving, lubricating for the intestines and beneficial for lung conditions. These properties make almonds great for those with sensitive digestion. Ayurvedic nutrition considers almonds to enhance spirituality, intellect, and reproductive ability. Almonds are powerhouses 💪🏼 But all things considered, do what makes you feel good and alive!
Almond Milk Recipe:
1 cup organic, raw almonds
4 cups alkaline water
1 date (optional)
Dash of Himalayan Salt
Dash of Madagascar vanilla extract
1. Soak almonds for 24 hrs in alkaline water.
2. Drain almonds, rinse, put in blender with 4 cups of water, dates, vanilla, salt.
3. Turn blender on and blend until smooth (in a vitamix I do this with the smoothie setting 2 times)
4. Strain milk using nut milk bag or cheesecloth
5. Enjoy!! 😋

The gratitude I have for these women is beyond words. Each time I get to visit with them I am reminded of how lucky I am to share friendship with such beautiful, strong, caring women who are each in their own way committing their lives to making changes in the world. Just being in their presence is medicine, and when we all get together--it's magic. Love you ladies! Thank you for the fun, crazy LA adventures. .

Feeling so much joyous gratitude after an amazing conversation full of laughter last night with my girls @leia_vita @sokavision. And for these beautiful peonies who decided to finally show themselves after a long winter. You all light and color my path.
