Spiritual Theme Month: Mexican Culture- Week One

Activities for our first week of Mexican Culture month, bring us to go back to the nostalgia of childhood but with a new and cultural twist. Do you remember musical chairs? I do! How much fun was that? Yep! Okay so get ready to play this good ole past time but modified! Tonight, we celebrate Mexican food and drink, for exploring Mexican Culture. It’ll be a great experience but hey, every experience is going to be great. This one month long adventure adds to the Soul’s journey, and in what you participate in… you will learn from as well as make new memories.

Let the games begin!

First, you’ll need to set up a table with several Mexican appetizer dishes and a few entrees broken down into sampler size. Then, if you don’t mind taking in some alcohol on special occasions, grab some Mexican Tequila and start mixing several flavors of Margaritas. Be creative! Or, if you are like me and don’t want a bunch of substances in your system, mix up some Virgin style margaritas instead. The Virgin versions will probably be a lot better for those of you playing with your families including children.

After you have everything prepared, set up your table! Place the dishes and drinks going all around the dinner table. Make sure you have it set up to where there’s one sampler of food, one drink, one sampler, one drink… every other placement. By the end of set up, you should have a table that has some Mexican colors as decoration with there being a drink in between plates. Remove all chairs.

Next, call your participants in and have then all take a position standing at the table. Have someone control the music. Be sure to tell them to let it play for a little bit each time before pausing the music each time. Have them start up the music. Walk around the table with the music, holding the edge of the table gently to guide your way. When the music stops, reach out carefully for the food or beverage in front of you. Taste it! Gobble it all up! Put the plate or glass towards the middle of the table. The person who has eaten and drank more at the end of the game is the winner!

Later on, if everyone is still up to it…. have everyone lay back and watch a movie.

For kids and family: The Book of Life seems fun!

For adults: Instructions Not Included appears to be a good laugh and is still on the cleaner side of entertainment.

It’s totally up to you though. I hope you have an awesome time!

Spiritual Living: It’s July 2020- Mexican Magic Month!

Greetings friends, it’s Mexican Magic month! I’m not sure if you all have time throughout the full week to participate in activities but I’ll post what I’m doing and you can join in or not. Please post and tag me in it, if you do! Life has been brought to an awful low, and it’s time we bring it back up!

The idea is to have fun and learn! This is based on my new reading idea, “Heavenly Homework” on my Spiritual Services site. I pray it brings a happy vibe to life!

Spiritual Life Theme

This the month of July in 2020. Starting this 22nd of the month I’ll be kicking off the “Spiritual Life” theme months. I want to inspire and motivate other people for a fun but more righteous life. Spirituality is found in the many facets of life. I want to motivate others so that even amongst those who have the most extreme of lessons in life. Life is challenging now, for many. Let’s lift the vibrations as best as we can.

Please follow along here monthly and on social media at Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. I’ll have a post here and on those social media platforms for you to follow along in regards to activities and goals.

Check the next post for this months theme!

Gluten Free

As most know, I’m a “pick & taster” when it comes to eating. I’ve maintained a breatharian diet for the most part but Life is also about the experience. The senses create memories and so I will have a bite or few, of things brought by my kids or visitors in order to taste and enjoy the moment with them. When I do actually sit and have a small amount of food though, I made sure to eliminate the ingredients of gluten and sugar. During a visit with my friend though, I did accidentally add sugar to my coffee out of habit in the past times that she was here when I used to eat a lot of sugar. She hadn’t been here in so long, that it felt like old times. But I immediately recognized my mistake, and after tasting a few sour patch kids that she had bought, I returned to my sugar-free diet without guilt since I was more proud that I caught myself.

I removed gluten from my diet back in January which was around the same time that I gave up sugar totally. I had to ween off of sugar over time. I don’t have addictions, I only choose what I want to do. I have the ability to remove anything in my life at any time in regards to addictive substances such as the caffeine and sugar that I used to use. I still take a little caffeine though in my tea and coffee. I go through cycles of drinking tea for a few weeks, and coffee for another few. I love making them and switching recipes. It’s been both successful and rewarding when it comes to my tea making on my online store. I’m a wizard in herbs and botanicals that I can even make special custom orders for any need. Coffee is a treat for me. But yes, as of December 2019, it’s been all about eliminating sugar and replacing it with Stevia. I’m even growing my own stevia plant in my garden.

I eliminated gluten from my diet back in July of 2016. It was hard to keep things going with buying gluten free products only throughout time, so I didn’t push the change too much onto my family. Almost everything has gluten in it anyhow. I hadn’t strictly removed it until September 2019. It was a process of enforcing it, but everyone slowly got used to the taste. I love the taste of gluten free products much more. Now we don’t use gluten in our foods.

It’s a big transition to change the entire pantry but having awareness helps. They have an aisle at most Shoprites and Targets if you are looking for gluten free products. The above photo contains my favorite snacks for the kids. The taste is fuller without gluten and it’s healthier since the gluten can cause major health issues. It hurts your digestive system. It can then cause sluggishness and more fat. All three of those symptoms can cause heart problems. I also noticed that it causes extra belly fat.

I challenge any one reading this to eliminate gluten and sugar for three weeks and see how you feel on the start of the fourth week.

Whenever the body detoxes itself from anything, meat, sugar, alcohol, anything… you will feel a little under the weather, just be aware if you do try to clean out gf diet. Without eating, I wondered why I felt so bad when I did eat a tiny something. It was the sugar hand gluten. It feels great!

We the people…

The states in the picture below are ones said to be increasing in COVID-19.

Here is a picture of all Republican states in blue and Democratic states in red.

Overlap the maps and you’ll see that there seems to be a common factor.

This picture shows where the protests are.

Now again, the map of political parties….

If you look, the states in turmoil from protests and the virus are mainly democratic with a few exceptions.

What’s the point? Warfare. This is a political war being used in democratic states only because if they have democratic friends in offices in those states “the left” can get help in pushing these two agendas. It’s reverse psychology.

I say this because we the people are not only caught in a revolution but also a political war, a trade war, and it affects us spiritually in spiritual warfare. I am not siding with any side. I totally feel that we as a people should wake and see what’s being done to us. It’s horrifying. Business owners are terrorized with their property damaged after years of hard work and money, for what? For one party in politics to make the other look bad for a win? It’s a scary nation when your leaders can take away rights and not only silence freedom of speech but also cause nationwide terrorism. Peacefully protesting is a good thing but for violence, and outright lies to be dished our! I told you all the coronavirus was a mass consciousness. I wish people listened. I’m no fake.

And as far as censorship? The only reason anyone needs to be silenced is because if the powers weren’t doing anything wrong to begin with, we wouldn’t need a reason to speak up for people. I didn’t lead anyone astray. In all things that I’ve said, I’ve been right. But look at how I’m being greatly oppressed? Just like the greats were quieted and later acknowledged when they were no longer here to add to their insights… that’s how it will be with me. I may say things out of social norm, but I’m always right. And I inform people for their betterment. But yet, here we are in the middle of everything predicted last year in http://www.alurasangels.com Angelic Heralds. I know more…… I can see who is behind everything and what’s going to happen. I’m waiting for someone with a larger voice to help me. Then I’ll talk more.

For now, wake up. Don’t let your families struggle with the agenda and protests everyone of all races and beliefs together for the right things like the end of the terrorizing globalist power, and the start of a new order that actually keeps its word to uphold the law and protects their people because what is happening today is not legal nor keeping people safe.

By the end of this, people will lose faith, lose hope and many will lose jobs, money, and sanity, among those who have already. 38.6 million are unemployed. Think of the families! Let the world know the real reason for fighting back!

2020 Garden: And Battling the tart.

Hello there everybody. Blessings and warm embraces from me to you!

Even though this link has been maliciously blocked on Facebook, that is not going to stop me from continuing my blog. I love this platform in order to document my own personal journey while teaching many of you out there in yours. Sadly though, this blog was considered as a threat by someone, and no longer able to be shared. I did try to change the domain but apparently IP addresses are linked to very specific blog sites. And it seems that Facebook has already programmed into their system the IP address of this blog and of my Spiritual Services website. I’m still trying to figure out a way around it. In the meantime I’m not going to let it stress me out. I’ve known for a long time when I was up against and so I can only sit here and patiently wait with great faith that the Lord above will come through to help me as he always has. Mother goddess as well.

Part of this bug in my spiritual journey has always included the angelic new year and activities that I do throughout. This begins in May and ends on the Autumn equinox in September. I love this time of year because it is all about planting, growing, and bringing things to life. The produce is essential to health physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. All of my products that I make are homemade. Therefore, I not only grow some of my gardens outdoors throughout that time of year… but I also have to grow some of them indoors all year around. I love doing both but, to be honest with you I truly love the outdoors more so. I have a very unusual way of gardening and hopefully I’ll get a chance to share a little bit about that as well.

This year, my daughters Amber, Adree,and I started our herb garden back on May 1 which was the first day of what we call “The Angelic New Year”. We had some guests come by but some didn’t want to attend out of fear of the pandemic. We planted a manifestation vine, danced around our themed maypole, and spent the whole day landscaping and doing repairs to our home. Later on, we did a little gardening. It was fun. A few days ago on May 21, 2020, I worked on designing the herb gardens. Right now there are three. Two are smaller for now until the baby plants grow.

The gardens themselves have the traditional herbs, but what’s amazing is that there are a lot of natural herbs in the wild too. So I have been working on a fourth herb garden that will contain wild and woodland herbs in it. As a small girl, “he who walks beside me in spirit” taught me a lot about nature. I learned about plants and their uses. The only thing was, was that I was never taught the names of the plants according to what humans called them. I had to identify everything by color, leaf or petal, location, sap, insects attracted toward it and the root of the plant. I had to be careful because some wild plants have other species that resemble them but are toxic. I was taught about everything that I came across. There are so many things in nature that even to this present day I am still adding plants, trees, berries, nuts, roots, and more to my grimoire. I enjoy venturing out into the forest to search for what I need at the time, but it’ll be more convenient to grow some of the wild plants that I use regularly in my own garden.

Some people like to plant everything together in their gardens. I almost always see rows of the same plants in gardens that I come across, but I don’t do the same in all of my gardens. I like to mix things up to give an ornamental look to my gardening. Almost everything that you will see in my gardens will be useable for food, medicine, ritual, scent, cosmetics or spell work. I can’t wait for the harvest.

Battling The Tart

Another part of my gardens include vegetables, melons, and fruit. I had an apple tree growing when I first moved into this house back in 2017. Unfortunately though, flooding rotted its roots and it didn’t make it. I have a great surprise to share with everyone this year! But I don’t want to spoil it now. So, I’ll just go on to say that I have always wanted to grow a few things specifically since I was a little girl. One of them being, a sour tart lemon tree, also known as a Meyer Lemon tree. Back in my 2010, I was picking up gardening tools for my garden that I was going to grow that year and came across one at my local Home Depot. I was thrilled! In the last few years before that, I hadn’t seen one in stores. I lived in another town then, about 5 miles away from that town’s location. Perhaps the stores in that area didn’t sell them? Nevertheless, I found one! I was ecstatic. I bought it. For only $7.99 I had made a dream of mine come true. Sheesh, for many people they dream to be rich, have a big house, or a nice luxury car. Stuff like that. For me? I dream of simple things, like owning a tree.

I put the little 1 foot tall tree and my bag of purchased gardening supplies into the trunk of my dad’s car (I didn’t drive, still don’t). My dad who passed away in 2019, was still alive then. He was quiet on the way home that day but he was usually a quiet guy anyhow. When we got home, I unpacked my purchases and put my tools in my small garden shed. Then, I sat down on the deck with my lemon tree. It was April, and so both of my kids Amber and Noah were still in school. I waited for them to get home to share with them this awesome find! Later when they both got home from school, they did their homework, washed up, and sat down with me and my parents for dinner. After listening to them about their day, I went on to express my joy over my lemon tree. They were pretty excited themselves too. I mean, they didn’t know a lot of other kids who could say they had a lemon tree! We all went out to the deck for evening tea and to look at the lemon tree again. It was just a tiny thing.

My dad joined us. He began sharing with us all about how in his younger days he had known a guy who had grown a lemon tree himself too. He advised me to start growing it indoors since April was still chilly and that really I could keep it inside as an indoor plant too, just as my father’s friend had done. I liked the idea. Live plants in the house made my energy feel crisp and clean anyhow. That was in 2010, and a few years went by….

It’s 2020 now as you know, and I went got myself another lemon tree for here at my current home that I’ve lived in since 2017. But it reminded me of what had ended up happening with that first lemon tree that I had. I was recently talking to one of best friends Dylan (Lauren) and had told her a short version of the story. Here it is…

Firstly, I suggest that after a year that you remove your lemon tree from the home. Starting at a foot high in 2010, by the time that we were moving out of that house and into a new one that tree was 8 feet tall. I could not get it out of the house by myself at all! The branches had a span of 3-4 feet in length, and the tree had reached to my ceiling. The doorways were another story. My doorways were only 6 feet in height. I don’t think people really expect the trees to get that large indoors, considering that they stunt the growth in the pot that they grow it in. This is in order to somehow control how big it gets. I didn’t know that. I mean I probably could have just asked about it, but I sincerely didn’t even think of it. I just watered it and fertilized it, and expected to trim it down at some point. But I had wanted to keep it alive and growing.. I had struggled to get that tree outdoors. Moving to a new location, I wanted to transplant it into the new yard of where I was moving to. I was so excited that I had grown a lemon tree that large, that I hadn’t even really cared about the battle that I was going through in trying to get it outside.

The pot was very heavy because of the soil and the trees’s size. I was trying everything I could to try to get it outside and onto the moving truck. I had even put it in the doorway and laid it on its side while wrapping the pot with plastic so that the soil did not spill out. I sat down on my butt with my back towards it, and tried to use my legs and feet to glide it out but that still didn’t work. I had to get some kind of help. Tired already, I called downstairs to anyone who might hear me. My father was laughing at me. He told me that I should’ve took that tree outside sometime ago because they get so big. Then he decided to tell me how his friend had run into a similar issue. He went into detail about how this guy had grown his lemon tree for far longer than I had grown mine. He told me that his friend couldn’t barely get it through his front door. I sat there staring at my father with disbelief. I couldn’t imagine why after all that time he had never told me that part of the story. Another thing was that my father had walked past that room every day where the lemon tree had been growing and never thought once to just let me know that he thought it was getting a little too big to be inside? I was stuck with this issue trying to figure out what to do next. I couldn’t lift it, let alone get it down the whole flight of steps. My father had discovered he had cancer later that same year that I had bought the lemon tree. Many years later, he was too weak to help me and plus he said that it would not fit on the moving truck at all. So he told me that I only had one or two options. I could just leave the lemon tree where it was inside, for the next people who moved in after us. Or, I could start chopping it up a little bit to make it smaller. I really didn’t want to cut the tree up at all. But I really didn’t have a choice. We couldn’t leave it inside. What if no one moved in right away? Who would water the tree? I didn’t want to leave it to die. I had been so proud of it in the beginning anyhow. So I decided I would cut it up a little. Then I would see if I could get it down the stairs, and into the backyard. I would just leave it on that property instead of taking it with me.

I finally had gotten lemon tree out of the house and transplanted into the backyard. I spent a few minutes saying goodbye to it as the movers were getting ready to pack us all up for us to head off to our new residence. I felt really sad that it wasn’t going with us. I still couldn’t believe for a second that my dad didn’t tell me to be careful growing inside. He was the one that suggested I started indoors to begin with. I also was a little surprised at how long I sat there and battled with that tart lemon tree! 2 hours! I really amazed myself that I hadn’t just thought of cutting the branches down before, myself. I was really genuinely proud of the size it had grown to. I wanted to take it with me at that size, since I had grown it for all those years. It was the first lemon tree that I had ever grown. It was a great dream come true.

I don’t know whether the people that moved in after us a few years later, left the tree in the backyard growing or not. But I did have to go and get myself another lemon tree. This time, I will leave it outside to grow for sure.

Gardening is one of my favorite things to do with my spare time. I really love making things come to life, and watching them grow strong and healthy as I nurture them. I also like to use what I’ve grown, to help other people, and my family to have a good state of well-being.
