Где пить? Как пить?🌿🍵 Чайная культура ведет свои истоки из древнего Китая. В свое время мудрецы Поднебесной считали, что культура чаепития - особая категория искусства. Были придуманы специальные чайные церемонии, а так же построены отдельные домики, беседки для того, чтобы ничего не мешало насладиться чашкой горячего напитка из чайных листьев.
Собственные чайные дома могли позволить себе только представители знати. Однако, для тех, кто хотел помимо чаепития доставить себе удовольствия иного плана, были построены специальные публичные чайные дома. Однако наибольшее распространение традиция публичных чайных получила в Японии, где для работы в подобных заведениях девушек учили с раннего детства. Но об этом как-нибудь в другой раз...

WHERE HAS ALL THE WHITE SAGE GONE? //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may have noticed the 5 inch white sage has been out of stock....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Due to the rough growing season, and now, the horrific fires in California our supplier will have a limited supply of white sage until about March. These conditions may even continue to affect the availability of sage in the future. We are talking with other suppliers, one being an organic farm who offers organically grown sage, and will be carrying this sage in the near future.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the meantime though, please see this as an opportunity to use other items in your practice such as other herbs and plants and even sprays. White sage incense sticks are a great alternative, as are any kind of mist spray we sell. These are all made with the plant material and essence of sage and are just effective as using a smudge stick. Remember, it's #intention that is always the most important component. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For this Trans Day of Rememberance, I facilitated a lantern ceremony at my local LGBT youth center. Each lantern represents a trans person who was killed due to violence this year. Each youth in our group read a name of one of the aforementioned trans people and decorated a lantern to represent them. We did not have enough youth in the group to decorate only one lantern for each trans person who died due to fatal violence last year (23 people). It hit me like a brick. All but one of those people were trans women. The overwhelming majority of them were people of color. After making a spiral with the lanterns from this year, we added the lanterns which were created in the past years, dating back to 2015 and had an hour of periods of silence and quiet reflection to pay the respect due to these people that they did not receive enough of during their lifetime. I hope this number hits you hard like it did to me. I hope it sticks with you that trans people ARE marginalized in an extreme and very real way. I hope you read the names of these people and send their love ones positivity and love because God knows they need it. I hope you see that when these minorities intersect, it also puts them in the crosshairs of someone awful’s violence. Speak up. Defend your trans friends and family. Be an ally. Fight like you mean it. 🌹
Rest in piece and love,

Oh this gift of life. Truth be told I wasn’t all that sure I wanted to play this game. Until I realized I am the game. And so much more. ~
Times are changing and a move is on the horizon. I hear her calling me. Whispers in the palm trees. Will you come for me? Will you receive me? Will you open yourself up to me? Will you give into me? Will you rest in me? Will you let me love you and nurture you?
Yes. Yes. I breathe in. I breathe out. Again. Yes, yes, absolutely yes. The kind of yes that involves death. Death and rebirth. Another cycle is closing. Another chapter is ending. And a new one begins. ~
And as the dance of life continues, the eternal holds me in its infinite arms. Runs through my veins. Wild.
Evolution. Soul awareness. Intimacy. Legacy. Integrity. Love. ~
She has called me and I surrender. I am home. ~
Much love -A
The highlight of the #ceremony was the singing of a Catholic prayer known as ‘The Exsultet’, or ‘Easter Proclamation’. The problem starts in the wording of the prayer itself.
On April 27th, 2014, #PopeFrancis held a ceremony in #StPeterSquare at #TheVatican to induct two former popes into sainthood. #Catholic sainthood ceremonies are fairly standard procedures, and happen quite often. But on this particular occasion, #Pope Francis wanted it broadcast around the world in 3D, HF and 3K. “How art thou fallen from heaven, O #Lucifer , #sonofthemorning ! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:12 (KJV)
What was so special about this #sainthood ceremony to go to all that expense and trouble? What was it that the pope needed the entire world to watch? As it turns out, Pope Francis was about to declare that Lucifer is the Morning Star, a title that the Bible gives to #JesusChrist alone. #Thepope was telling all the world that Lucifer is God of the #CatholicChurch . “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” #Revelation 22:16 (KJV)
The highlight of the ceremony was the singing of a Catholic prayer known as ‘The Exsultet‘, or ‘Easter Proclamation’. The problem starts in the wording of the prayer itself. As you can see below, twice the name of Lucifer is mentioned as you can clearly see in both the #Latin and #English versions. The name of Jesus is not mentioned at all. • THE EXSULTET IN LATIN: Flammas eius Lucifer matutinus invéniat: ille, inquam, Lucifer, qui nescit occásum. Christus Fílius tuus, qui, regréssus ab ínferis, humáno géneri serénus illúxit, et vivit et regnat in sæcula sæculórum. • THE EXSULTET IN ENGLISH: May this flame be found still burning, by the Morning Star: the one Morning Star who never sets, Christ your Son, who, coming back from death’s domain, has shed his peaceful light on humanity, and lives and reigns forever and ever. #mkultra#evil#elite#wow
When we are busy we want time to our self. When we have nothing to do we want to be busy. We want our dreams to come true, we don’t enjoy the process to create those dreams.
Learning to except the moment you are in gives you so much more value. Your time will come when you have learned the lesson.
Don’t wish your life away, always wanting to be a step in front. You will miss out on all the important parts of each process, these are beautiful learning gifts.
When your mind starts to wonder and take control remember this beautiful mantra
My time is coming and I’m greatful thank you thank you thank you. 🙏🏽✌🏽
