Do you ever find yourself being stubborn or getting stuck often? Consider your mind as the forest. Each of the trees represent your thoughts and emotions — which in turn affect your ability to communicate or actualize effectively. Sometimes these forests represent our belief systems and ideologies. Some of these trees have been growing for decades. We all need a firm reset sometimes when things become a bit overwhelming. It is important to remember that forest fires are actually healthy for the forests to repopulate. The carbon imprinted into the soil creates a fertile layer in which new trees may begin to grow. .
Symbolically, this idea allows us to remove any limiting belief systems that prevent us from manifesting abundance into our lives. .
One of the most profoundly activating experiences of my life took place in a mountainous region of Mexico at the hands of gifted healer, Kwithy Edmonds. Skilled in a technology that fuses energy healing, crystal therapy, ASMR/sound alchemy + aromatherapy, this experience offers relaxation + stimulation that brings you more deeply into the present moment while taking you on an unforgettable journey.

LOVE, LIGHT AND UNICORNS
There is a massive energetic movement showing up in the collective at the moment that is calling in juicy love, light, butterflies and unicorns.
“Everything is love and light”
I’m sure we’ve all heard someone suggesting how we should open our third eye and tips on opening the heart center.
While this is beautiful to witness massive heart openings, there is a HUGE piece that is MISSING.
This is only half of the puzzle.
If we want to experience balance and harmony within our lives, we cannot ignore our lower chakra centers from the solar plexus down.
In this “New Age” community, so many people are teaching and speaking of opening our upper chakra system completely avoiding the lower system.
It’s like climbing a tree. We want to climb higher and higher to reach new heights, new perspectives, so we can see more and know more; while there is NO root system of this tree tethered to the Earth.
Why is this? Why is there such an influx and focus of the upper chakra exploration?
MANY people are scared of what is being stored in the lower chakra systems.
We carry our ancestral karma in these lower chakra centers.
When we encounter pain and suffering in this life we shove it down. Down where? Yes, in the lower chakras.
By us avoiding these lower chakra systems is simply irresponsible and Spiritual Bypassing.
So many people are terrified to explore these lower chakra systems in fear they will uncover more fear, pain and suffering.
How can we expect and manifest a life filled with harmony and balance if we aren’t capable of seeing and exploring the whole picture?
If we want to experience balance and harmony, we must be willing to explore the shadows in addition to the upper realms.
If you want to experience rapid awakening, start in the lower chakras and in the shadows.
This is exactly why I created the 6-week online course, EMOTIONAL ALCHEMY. We will gracefully explore these realms to purify our shadows so that we can open up our hearts to experience deep love, balance and harmony.

YOU ARE IN LOVE.
YOU ARE LOVED.
YOU ARE LOVE.
As you begin this week, my prayer for you is that you experience what it feels like to be IN the frequency of love. May you feel what is to be loved unconditionally by Source Creator God and may you step out I to the world embodying your true nature as Love incarnate. I see you. I love you. I am you.
YOU ARE IN LOVE.
YOU ARE LOVED.
YOU ARE LOVE.
And the shift to earthy Virgo season begins with Mars leading the way. Venus and the Sun in the last few degrees of Leo with Mercury on master number 11° today making a fire trine with the moon in Aries and Jupiter in Sagittarius. To me, that says be aware of the actions your body wants but speak with your values with your heart.
In a moment of activation, when the voices are relentless… when it feels as if you are under a waterfall of cascading thoughts and feelings, falling down a rabbit hole of shame, blame, disappointment, and rage…
It is possible to slow down. To feel your feet on the ground. To breathe deeply from your lower belly. For just a moment, to shift your attention out of the swirling narrative, which is no longer supportive and safe, and into the holding of the earth.
While it may seem unbearable, with no escape route and no direction to turn… even in these most hopeless and uncertain times, you can find a place of refuge. Attune to inner and outer nature.
For just this moment, let go of any need to resolve your situation, to work it all out, to transform, understand, or heal. Even this is too much, too far away.
You are safe, now.
You need not heal, nor even actively “hold” your experience. But realize that somehow you are already being held. Each beat of your heart is an expression of this holding. Each breath that is given is the response to embodied prayer.
All the thoughts, feelings, emotions, images, impulses, and sensations… arising and passing in a field of vast space. They are made of this space, which is crafted of the qualities of mercy, warmth, and love. Feel this spaciousness surrounding you now, taking form as a temple of holding.
Rest in this moment. While it may appear that you urgently need something outside yourself, what you need more than anything is your own presence. Slowly return… Home.
One second at a time… this moment is workable. As is this one. And this one.

Do you ever suffer from menstrual pain, bloating, or cramping?

Although it’s a natural testosterone booster, shilajit is also considered a “cure all” in Siberia and is great for women especially. Many @nowalchemy customers have reported that the use of our shilajit completely relieved them from discomfort and pain during menstruation. If you are a woman and are interested in finding natural relief of the discomfort that can come during menstruation, try @nowalchemy Elysium. The Elysium has #shilajit#ormus and #cbd. Using the Elysium every day can definitely be a game changer.

Shilajit is also great for women because it strengthens the bones, tendons and ligaments and women are more prone to bone damage with aging. So stay healthy and life long strong by using shilajit every day. Give it a go and let us know. www.nowalchemy.com
You’ll never realize the God inside of you until you can see the Goddess inside of her ✨🙏🏼✨🧘🏽♂️✨👁✨ In the Tantric cosmology, the whole universe is perceived as being created, penetrated and sustained by two fundamental forces, which are permanently in a perfect, indestructible union. These forces or universal aspects are called Shiva and Shakti.
The tradition has associated to these principles a form, respectively that of a masculine deity and that of a feminine one. Accordingly, Lord Shiva represents the constitutive elements of the universe, while Shakti is the dynamic potency, which makes these elements come to life and act.
From a metaphysical point of view, the divine couple Shiva-Shakti corresponds to two essential aspects of the One: the masculine principle, which represents the abiding aspect of God, and the feminine principle, which represents Its Energy, the Force which acts in the manifested world and life itself.
Shakti here stands for the immanent aspect of the Divine, that is the act of active participation in the act of creation. This Tantric view of the Feminine in creation contributed to the orientation of the human being towards the active principles of the universe, rather than towards those of pure transcendence.
Therefore, Shiva defines the traits specific to pure transcendence and is normally associated, from this point of view, to a manifestation of Shakti who is somewhat stronger (such as Kali and Durga), personification of Her own untamed and limitless manifestation ✨🙏🏼✨ Shaktism’s focus on the Divine Feminine does not imply a rejection of Masculine or Neuter divinity. However, both are deemed to be inactive in the absence of Shakti. As set out in the first line of Adi Shankara’s renowned Shakta hymn, Saundaryalahari (c. 800 CE): “If Shiva is united with Shakti, he is able to create. If he is not, he is incapable even of stirring.” This is the fundamental tenet of Shaktism, as emphasized in the widely known image of the goddess Kali striding atop the seemingly lifeless body of Shiva.
Broadly speaking, Shakti is considered to be the cosmos itself – she is the embodiment of energy and dynamism, and the motivating force behind
Your spirit is chanting & your heart is singing to you. Can you hear that? Do you feel it? How could you, when your temple is so crowded with thoughts. How will you, if you're bothered with everything that comes to your head. If only you would pay heed to the energy that comes from your heart. Don't entertain every thought that arrives. Let it pass, let it flow. None of them are yours. Thoughts are harmless, they are information. No thought is serious or grave until you decide it is. No thought is negative or positive unless you look at it that way. None of them stay unless you make them stay. When we take every thought and dissect it, only to find in it our projections, we posses the risk of over thinking, over imagining. You seek love, wisdom and power in the wrong place. This madness must not drive you. The hunger in your heart must. The thirst in your soul must. For they only have one purpose - LOVE.
Let your gates open. Bring the guards done. Allow the fear to dissipate. Allow the light to flood your senses. What lies within this world can be seen through your mind, but all that lies beyond it can only be sensed by the heart. Listen to it's whispers, follow the rhythm and it shall never lead you astray. The world isn't loud for the one who knows how to listen to the heart. The world isn't lifeless for the one who can feel their soul. You haven't come here only to pursue a title that will be shed like clothes at the dawn of death. You aren't here to amass immense wealth, only to realise your soul is worth more than what's left behind. All these materials aid your survival here, but don't necessarily nurture your life. It is good to be rich, but have you ever tasted wealth?
Give your mind a break. Let your thoughts pass. Relax & release that tension in your shoulders. Whatever I give you, will be information. But you have to put it together for the final message. So close your eyes and listen to your heart. Let it dance, let it sing. Let your heart be free. Because it not only beats for you, it beats for this world. The warmth and love you give is immense, so don't measure it by your scales. Keep glowing. Keep flowing. 🖋 Pritesh

“Amos on Water”
Water has a way of bringing us back to play and innocence
How about we bring our bodies into that experience this week? Whether it’s simply washing our hands or taking a shower. Immerse that adult body of yours—dunk your complicated heart and rest, for a moment, playful and innocent.
The moon was full, spirits were high, the water refreshed, the fire cleansed, the earth was firm, and the air was calm. We cried out to the mother moon, that goddess full and shining in the night: Show us! See us! Free us!
Show us! See us! Free us!
Show us! See us! Free us!
And we were shown what the forest was willing to reveal, we were seen by all those who have eyes to see, and we were freed.
Freed. Freed and loosed from all that would bind us, from all that would hold us back, from all that which no longer serves us. #witchcraft#magick#luna#fullmoon
