Lately I’ve been getting into a rhythm of syncing my intentions with the lunar cycle. It’s been a great way to reconnect with the passage of time and clear out patterns and processes that no longer serve me. The energy at the end of January felt so incredibly potent that I knew I needed to properly honor the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse. In preparation for tomorrow’s full moon, I thought I’d share how I honored the last lunar cycle.
Beeswax wrap is a great alternative to plastic sandwich bags, saran wrap, and tin foil. I’d been thinking about buying some for ages, but I always balked at the price. Then I finally realized I could make it myself! With the right supplies and a little bit of time, you can whip up a set of wraps in a variety of sizes to meet your needs.
I love making use of plants that grow abundantly around me. This morning while walking Taco, I noticed a pile of pine boughs that had recently been trimmed from the trees in the park. The needles were still green and beautiful and I hated to see them go to waste. So I gathered a few branches and brought them home to make pine needle tea.
I grew up going to a nondenominational church. It attracted
healers and mystics and spiritualists of all types. My mom’s friends
included aromatherapists and reiki practitioners and massage
therapists and acupuncturists. The church often brought in visiting speakers from a range of spiritual traditions. Native American elders and sufi mystics and energy healers populated my childhood. I helped build my first sweat lodge when I was 8. I learned to meditate when I was 6.
I’ve come to a point in my life where I really hate washing my face. I don’t mind doing it in the shower in the morning, but there’s something I despise about trying to rinse my face off at night in our tiny bathroom sink. I’ve tried a few different types of facial cleansing pads and I loved the convenience, but I hated the amount of waste they created and all the chemicals they contained so I never used them regularly.
