Often times we loose sight of whats really important to us. We would like to believe that everyday is bliss and life's obstacles are non existent. However, every now and then the universe reminds us yet again, "I got you" and gives us the beauty of ,"The Harvest Moon"!
The Spiritual World is a world of my own, I abide by the frequencies of my heart and flow with wherever it leads me. Just like many of you , I consider myself a "Moon Goddess". I always find myself in high spirits days leading up to a full moon and when the special ones arrive, I feel whole , renewed, ...Thankful.
This time around I needed to take action. I have so much I've been asking the universe for that I forgot to say "Thank You" for what I have, What we've created together. I'm so thankful for my mind, my heart, and my intuition which ultimately led me to be an entrepreneur, a creator, ... a healer.
Tonight, September 13, 2019 "Harvest Moon"
When my mind was clear and my heart , open. I gathered herbs , I mixed oils, and I burned sage and other things (some things had to go, OK !! )
First I nourished my body :
I seasoned and grilled a variety mix of veggies and pineapples.
-->If you haven't tried grilled pineapples you are Lost (see recipe below) <--
And yes, grilled BBQ chicken along side my sisters infamous Pasta Salad was definitely on my plate as well. !!Balance !!
I drank 3 bottles of Spring Water to hydrate myself for the upcoming hot steamy herbal bath I had prepared.
Said my thanks and marched upstairs to the release I had waiting for me.
Herbal Bath Soak Cleanse
I mixed a bath soak with ;
Goat Milk Powder, Epsom salt , Pink Himalayan Salt , Red Hawaiian Sea Salt, Dried Eucalyptus Leaves , Dried Rose Buds, Dried Hibiscus Flowers, Fresh Sage Leaves, Dried Sage leaves, Whole Allspice, Ground Cloves, Fresh Rosemary Leaves , Dried Spearmint Leaves , Frankincense Essential Oil, Peppermint Oil , & Sweet Orange Oil. (See Photo Below)
I filled my tub with warm water as I begin to light my candles and think of everything I wanted to let go and the things I wanted to come into my life!
As the tub began to fill, I sprinkled my Herbal Bath Soak Blend into the water.
Once filled, I added my pre-mixed Oshun (see recipe below) Water to my steaming hot bath .
I turned on my playlist of healing sound bowl music and began to undress. As I undressed, I made sure to look at ME, my face, my eyes, my body ,my breast my thighs and I smiled. No, not because I looked Amazing, but because I'm proud. After years of not accepting who I am or what I thought my flaws actually were, I smiled because I Am Happy With Me!
The vibrations of the Sound bowls begin to rise louder and I could feel the vibration in my heart,...in my body. I stepped into the water , and the heat travels up my legs , into my stomach and reaches my face. I step all the way in and I lay back. An immediate relief has taken over me, I am relaxed!
I reminded myself that I am worthy of all things. I reminded myself to trust me , I am right. I reminded myself that I am confident, I am strong , I AM all things beautiful. "You Got This", I repeated to myself . Sometimes anxiety gets the best of me and I forget who I am.
After 20 mins of soaking , meditating and chanting, it was time to Scrub.
Goddess Body Scrub:
Pure Cane Sugar
Melted Shea Butter
Frankincense Essential Oil
I scrubbed my entire body from neck to toe. The Exfoliating Body Scrub Blend left me feeling refreshed and soft. The Glow it gave my body made me feel like I was a Goddess emerging from another realm.
I rinsed my body , letting the herbs stick to me. I felt so good, physically and mentally.
I stepped out the tub , dried off and wrapped myself in my robe. It was time for my second Ritual !
I walk into my home office and glance over at the Alter I've created. Being a business owner has its perks but it can be a pain financially sometimes, well... most times! But, its time for a change.
I previously pre- made a Money Powder (see recipe below) and a money oil . I placed 3 coin, 3 cinnamon sticks , white and brown sugar in the bottom of a flower pot. I added the money powder and soil, planted an aloe leaf plant and watered it with Holy Water.
According to "Seven African Powers The Orishas" by Monique Joiner Siedlak, this practice will bring success, clients, and prosperity.
I proceeded to pour the Money Oil (see recipe below) along with shredded pieces of a saged one dollar bill into a green Money Candle , Lit it and said my conjuring spell.
After more meditating , I partied ways with my doubts and accepted my blessings to come.
Happy Harvest Moon Goddess !
Grilled Pineapples :
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 ounce Florida water
