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:

  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).

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

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

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

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

  Store the herbal extract in a cool and dark place.

  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!🌸😊

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.

Sarajevo Fairy Tale


Last fall, I made this short film in my birth city of Sarajevo in Bosnia. I named it “Sarajevo Fairy Tale” because the city inspired me to trust myself, practice self-love, commit to my bliss, and express my creativity freely.

Here is the link to view it:

I used to have mixed feelings and confusion about my identity since I moved around and lived in different places all over the world. It used to drive me crazy when people asked me about my accent because it was so hard to get into all the details about my life story with a stranger. Sometimes I felt people tried to exoticize me or put me in a box based on my looks, my accent, and their idea of Bosnia without getting to know who I really am.

With life experience and a lot of heartbreak, I realized that I and all of us are very much unique individuals on our own journeys and that to know ourselves and others has nothing to do with where we were born or have lived (although exploring and enjoying these places is a part of our journey).

We are eternal cosmic spirits that got the opportunity to experience a 3D world so that we can explore all the universal possibilities. How amazing is that! Enjoy this incredible opportunity – live and love to the fullest! 💖🎶😉🎶💖


Express Your Heart To Heal!


What can we do with grief?
Break our hearts over it every day?
No, my heart belongs to me only
Love made me realize this

Our hearts have to be whole
To resonate with another

Stories We Tell

stories we tell

To love the uniqueness of oneself and to express it wholeheartedly and with joy is such a divine vision to behold. We write our own unique life stories; no one is preventing us from doing anything, it is only our desire to feel accepted and safe that makes us stop in our tracks when we just want to expand past the speed of light. We have to break our limiting beliefs in order to reveal what lies beneath the hard shell.

We don’t have to proscribe to any specific beliefs…we can be guided by our inner intuition of what is right for us, what is our truth, what makes us passionate about living. This way, we can be a unique individual contributing to the beauty of the universe in our own special way. Listening to the judgments of others or trying to fit in could be comforting in the short run but in the long run, can contribute to illness and other crises if we aren’t living in our authenticity. The world is also robbed of somebody who could change it for the better.
