Creating these plant remedies from the jungle is an act of beauty, love and sacred contemplation for me <3. I really enjoy the rehydration ritual and feel honoured to have the opportunity to bring you something so nurturing and healing…
I’ve gained a real respect for these amazing ‘teacher’ plants by witnessing them in their natural habitat and partaking in sacred ceremonies with indigenous tribesman. In turn I bring that same level of sacredness and respect with every action I take – from its source, all the way to your door.
The Moon’s Magical Effect
I time my Rehydration ‘Ceremonies’ with the phases of the Moon. The ‘New Moon’ energy focuses on new beginnings, sowing seeds, initiating plans. The ‘Full Moon’ energy is more around releasing, let go, detoxifying, healing…
The Moon, better known for her job with the tides, has extraordinary effects on our bodies and emotions, given we are 70-90% water. It is not uncommon for people to feel restless and emotional during a full moon.
The Moon brings us more in touch with our feelings, and as ’we need to feel it to heal it’, its the perfect time for contemplation.
Acting upon that invitation can bring us into deep compassion for ourselves and others. It can soften our beliefs and judgements; break down rigidity of thought, and bring us into the ‘flow’ state, where things can happen more by ease and synchronicity.
Rehydration Day Preparation
On the rehydration date, I smudge my freshly cleaned kitchen, (including my own aura), and meditate so I’m the most clear and loving channel I can be.
I light candles and play beautiful Ayahausca Ceremonial music, (native Caapi language to help ‘wake her’ gently from her dehydrated slumber). The freshly distilled water and paste are meticulously measured and brought to life, while being ‘blessed’ with Peace, Health, Love, Abundance and Gratitude by me personally. Then once it’s ready, the potent elixir is bottled up and placed within a circle of my crystals and ‘heart-stones’ made for me by my own dear parents.
i leave the bottles to sit in the loving embrace of crystals, candles, and hand-written heart-stones (with words such as love, gratitude, abundance, courage, peace, joy etc). Palo-santo or sage essence burns away, along with the soft alluring music. The ambiance is a delight of beautiful and powerful vibration, under whichever Moon is for that evening.
I really enjoy making these small yet powerful bottles of healing love for you. I hope they bless you as they have blessed me, and you enjoy all the benefits the ‘Madre’ has in store for you =) <3
