Sacred Sundays: Cleansing with Mint and Cinnamon for the New Year

SACRED SUNDAYS

Cleansing with Mint and Cinnamon for the New Year

January 12th, 2019

 

I don’t know about everyone else but the shift of the new year and decade in Gregorian calendar has been intense to put it lightly. Intuitively I’ve noticed a lot of people are either sick right now, hermiting themselves, or making huge promises of “new year, new me.” All these responses are ok; however it is the dead of winter right now in the northern hemisphere, and it’s ok the rest, hibernate, and be in seclusion. With that said, perhaps it’s time to pay attention to what we can release, cleanse, and remove from our spaces, body, minds, and spirits in order to give ourselves the boost we need to build a strong foundation. This cleansing ritual was channeled by me via the Akashic Records. The Masters, Teachers, and Loved Ones of the records wish me to deliver this message for the collective:

“Dear ones, now is the time to rest and reflect. Where can you allow some release at this point in your life? What has become too heavy to carry on your own, and how can you free yourself from the grips of illusion? We ask these questions not to overwhelm you, but to direct your attention to the core of the issue. No one person or source is to blame for the collective suffering. We know and see that there is much sadness in your hearts right now, and we ask you with all the love in our hearts to keep your hope alive. We offer you this ritual as a gesture of assistance in clearing the pathways of your heart so that your true essence may shine."


What you’ll need:

  • Real Salt (the larger the salt crystals the better)
  • Fresh Mint Leaves
  • Almond Oil (use olive or coconut oil if you have an allergy)
  • A Cinnamon Stick

Simple Steps & Procedures:

While in the shower before you wash yourself, take a handful of salt and scrub your body from the neck down, avoiding sensitive areas. As you scrub repeat this mantra ‘I cleanse the loads that are not mine to carry. I release you. Thank you.’ Please do not just mindlessly scrub! It is important that body and mind are together in this. After you scrub, wash yourself as usual. We suggest shampooing your head as well to cleanse your crown if possible.

Once out of the shower, take the fresh mint leaves and crush them in your hands. Then rub them all over your body from the neck down, avoiding sensitive areas. As you do this say, ‘I welcome freshness, clarity, and divine truth into my life right now.’

Next take the oil and massage it lovingly and slowly into your skin. Allowing yourself to experience what it’s like to nurture yourself. The oil acts as a protective barrier, and you might enjoy visualizing any heavy energy sliding off of you with ease.

Finally burn the cinnamon stick in your bathroom and use it as a wand to smudge your body and your entire space if you wish. When you are finished say aloud, ‘It is done.’”

All in all, this is a Moon that wants to aid and assist in feeling better supported. Libra is a Cardinal air sign heavily associated with relationships and many other aspects of Venus. I want to talk for a moment about relationships. There’s a lot of them being tested right now in the world. Some partners are suddenly finding themselves working from home with a spouse. Others are doing what they can to cope with a loss of joint income, and are trying to pick up the slack for their mate. Children are home from school and now need tending to. Some single or “limbo” relationship people are realizing they really wish they had someone to depend on. Regardless of your situation... exceed t

Crystals carry a lot of power. These earthen tokens of sacred geometry are said to hold the energies and secrets or the universe, and can also be charged, like any talisman, to hold the intention of the practitioner or wearer. These sparkling gem treasures are gifts to us from the Earth and can be used in a plethora of ways, and since the collective world is experiencing a vibrational and energetic shift due to quarantine and the covid-19 pandemic, many are searching for new ways to ground and center themselves while dealing with the emotional, physical, and financial upheaval that comes with this crisis.

April proves to be a mighty and potent month ahead. The Sun will be spending the first portion of the month in the sign of Aries. This brings about a noticeable shift energetically, encouraging everyone to be self-sufficient. Jupiter will make a rare conjunction to Pluto, shining a light on intense and often brutal topics. Pluto is the lord of the underworld and rules everything from death and destruction to regeneration. Pluto's keyword is evolution. Both physically and spiritually. Pluto will be meeting up with Jupiter in Capricorn, amplifying the world's current conditions. This is a once in about every twelve-year aspect, and promises even more significant upheavals in the weeks ahead. While some astrologers suggest this is the "kiss of death," I see things a bit differently. It's my job to inform readers and clients that the "stars impel, they do not compel." AKA; the astrology provides the framework to have experiences; it doesn't always dictate our lives. It merely provides the atmosphere...
