    The Sacred Spoon

    Balancing Meals – Third Eye Chakra Veggie Stir Fry with Plum Sauce The Third Eye Chakra is connected with spirituality and perception as well as the color purple. When many people think of the third eye they think of foresight and advanced awareness. While this can be the case, oftentimes someone with an open third eye is more receptive to their surroundings and they pick up on energy shifts faster than others. When the third eye chakra is blocked we experience a lack of concentration and focus. We find it more difficult to sense energies or process information as quickly. Our ability to channel or connect becomes limited, if not…

    Witch Hunt

      There are witches all around us. You can find them anywhere… The Witch on Wheels has been documenting her findings.   Meet Barbara King     Barbara King travels in a skoolie named the downsizer when she’s not at home North of Boston. I met her this past winter during her 20 weeks in Florida where she was learning “to slow down and just be.” We read each other’s tarot cards and enjoyed some long conversations. Barbara is experimenting with retirement [ie minimalism and freedom], which would give her more time to explore this country, make new friends, and possibly discover her future long-term road family. Along the way,…

    Book Review – The Good Morning Journal: 5-Minute Guided Reflections to Start Your Day with Inspiration, Purpose, and a Plan by Molly Burford

    Book Review The Good Morning Journal: 5-Minute Guided Reflections to Start Your Day with Inspiration, Purpose, and a Plan by Molly Burford Publisher: Adams Media 176 Pages Publication Date: June 1, 2021     I’d like to start with the fact that I approach journals like these with much excitement, but always with a dash of skepticism. With a journal, I hope to see some progression in the prompts, as a journal is usually (as expected) the same page copy and pasted throughout the whole book. I was firstly disappointed by the lack of such a progression in this book.  The journal invites you to take 5 minutes each morning…

    30-Day Chakra Healing Challenge by Cyndi Dale and Dana Childs

      In our groundbreaking book, Chakras, Food, and You, we present a revolutionary way to connect to your true self by identifying your primary chakra. From this starting place, you can structure your food choices and lifestyle to support that main energy center. However, every chakra needs a little love and maintenance. Your chakras are essentially eddies of energies that interact with one another, the external environment, and other living beings. They are the subtle prisms of sound and light that create your outer physical reality. That means if you want to be in tip-top shape, every chakra must be the same. So, why not spend the next 30 days…

    As Above So Below (How the Stars Became Our Hearts)

    Confessions of a Dark Witch   The Bourne     I decided to write this in response to many different people suggesting to me that I have a hard life because I call myself a “dark” witch, and many of those same individuals also added that, if they did not fully understand, I should clarify to people what I mean exactly. Also, as is obvious, I’ve returned to narrative format, as when talking about deep personal things like your own inner experiences in relationship to you own spiritual beliefs and practices, it should always be made clear that these are opinions and beliefs, not scientific truths. The realm of spirituality…
