Practicing Self-Love with Pure Sunshine Tea

IMG_20180312_162333I discovered the beauty of the ginger/white tea combination serendipitously at a coffee shop in Berlin, when I tried to spice up white tea with another herb that the coffee shop had on the menu – ginger. The combination turned out to be so delicious that I had to recreate it with a few exciting twists! πŸ˜‰

Β fresh ginger (thinly sliced)
Β white tea
Β cinnamon
Β pinch of black pepper
Β coconut milk (preferably home-made)

Β Add fresh ginger slices to water, bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Β Mix cinnamon and black pepper into the hot water.

Β Pour over white tea and infuse for about 10 minutes.

Β Strain the herbs and add coconut milk.

Β Stir and enjoy!


Simple Way to Make Herbal Tinctures


During the recent new moon, I decided to prepare chaga mushroom and wormwood tinctures, powerful healing and cleansing herbal extracts. I wanted to share with you how simple it is to make tinctures at home using any of your favorite herbs (fresh, dried, or powdered).  🌱🎨✨

Here is one simple way to do it:

Β Β Chop up fresh or dried herbs (roots and barks might be a bit more difficult to chop so just do your best and don’t worry about the size of the pieces).

Β Β If you would like, start your herbal extraction during the new or full moon to take advantage of the moon’s power.

Β Β Place your herbs into a glass jar and pour 40% vodka, rum, or brandy over the herbs so that the alcohol covers them completely.

Β Β Close the jar and shake it every day to help the healing components dissolve into the alcohol.

Β Β After 60 to 90 days or longer, squeeze out the herbal extract using cheese cloth and place the liquid in another glass jar.

Β Β Store the herbal extract in a cool and dark place.

Β Β Pour single herb extracts or created herbal formulas into glass dropper bottles for every-day use.

  Add your herbal extracts to tea or water and enjoy their beautiful healing properties!🌸😊

Never Compromise

You Already Have It All!

The current but slowly changing system of the world is based on scarcity, a perspective of lack that encourages, values, and rewards competition. Is there really a lack of resources so that only the ones who scrupulously compete to win get to live a good life? Have you ever met a happy and kind person who was out there creating chaos just to have more money and possessions?

There is nothing wrong with having or desiring abundance but it is the way in which we think about abundance that matters. It is not that we want status or mountains of clothes but it is the love and security that we think these things would lead to. It is precisely the environments which lack kindness, love, laughter, expression, safety, intimacy, and understanding that create a perceived material lack. In a reverse situation, even a shortage of food would not be perceived as such a drastic threat to survival since the true needs of humans are being met.

Whenever I have thoughts of having to “compete” for something, be it a job or someone’s attention, or to do more so I can get more, I immediately stop myself and question my motivations. The truth is that we can’t have anything that we aren’t in resonance with, that we don’t already have. If we have to at all compromise who we are, this situation is not for us. Each of us is unique and can contribute very special things to this world – the more energy we put into knowing who we are and developing our gifts, the less we will have the urge to compete. The bonus is that opportunities and abundance will come to us as we continue to focus on doing our thing – we won’t need to chase after anything. There will be a feeling of abundance and flow.


Letting Go


Check out my new short film Thorns! This story is about letting go and allowing life to unfold in alignment with our desires. At times, all we need to do is place our attention away from what we desperately want and recognize and enjoy the good that is already present in our lives. Β
