The different herbs have served a reminder of what I am putting into my body and what goal I have of rebalancing that area in particular. Lion's Mane, an adaptogen for mental clarity has been making its way into my potions day and night. I find that it has been a priority to take care of my mind and the content of which my thoughts are filled. With the busy-ness of the first half of the year came the use of a lot of mental energy, so I have felt the need to replenish through the herbs and through meditation practices. Below you will find a meditation practice that I have been sharing with my yoga students and practicing myself.
During your meditation practice, envision within your third eye a glimpse or a flash of something you would like to see manifest within your life. It can be a goal, a material thing, a trip somewhere…whatever it is take a moment to see it like a movie. Harnessing the concept that wherever we put our mental energy is what manifests within our life. So keeping our thoughts positive and our visions guided towards what we actually would like to see is powerful within our creations.
My morning potions prior to yoga or whatever exercise I am going to do that day have also included Eucommia which is for improving your flexibility, strength and endurance within the body. I have had the intention of furthering my flexibility within my personal yoga practice and creating more space within the body. As well as increasing the strength within my core. I have been feeling more open & strong and my joints have actually been feeling healthier while using this herb consistently.
Pearl has been my herbal segway to spirit lately as it is my spirit en-body. I have been using the Pearl in both my day & night potions. The magick about drinking it at night is that I feel that is that it is working as I sleep. I feel the radiance, and I think this is the most important thing about the herbs…discovering how they make you feel.

As I nourish myself through the herbs and self care practices I feel that everything is working from the inside out. Taking time for me is so important as I am always giving to others through my yoga teachings, rituals and life work. So the space I create within my day to nourish from the inside out holds a lot of value. Through ritual, practice and intention I weave a life full of meaning, love and power.
