Have You Seen These Three Medicinal Herbs (“Weeds”) in the Northeast?

6 Simple Ways to Connect With Your Divine Feminine

The world is in chaos and disarray. How have we gotten here? I’d guess it’s because of a multitude of factors, right?

Can You Feel the Change of Seasons Upon Us?

Winter is the barren season. It’s when we nurture ourselves, reflect, and slow down. Our patriarchal society wants us to constantly be one way when the matriarchal flow of nature is about cycles. Though I still understand the need to take things easy during this time (because it’s still hella cold), I can sense changeContinue reading “Can You Feel the Change of Seasons Upon Us?”

An Observation of the Skies: I Miss the Sun!

Unfortunately, we’ve had a string of cloudy days here in Brooklyn, NY. If the sun does manage to make an appearance, it’s often behind these hazy, mist-like clouds, which is simply becoming tiring.

Do You Change Your Diet with the Seasonal Transitions?

Figs, pomegranates, and apples, oh my! Do you notice the change in market offerings with the shifting of the seasons?  I remember the curiosity I felt while seeing a range of new fruits (and vegetables) out in the markets in Brooklyn this September. In the Pagan tradition, Mabon (which I previously wrote about) is celebratedContinue reading “Do You Change Your Diet with the Seasonal Transitions?”

A Call to Nurture and Balance Yourself <3

Ok y’all, it’s officially summer!! And I’ve noticed that the theme of duality from Gemini season continues. We transitioned from light/dark to masculine/feminine.

Feeling the Ground Gives me the Feels

At heart, deep holism means a refusal to join the zombie apocalypse— to not be numb, unfeeling, disconnected, on autopilot, unable to feel yourself or others.— Pip Walker The other day I intentionally walked barefoot in the grass. I dug my toes into the earth as I walked, I made sure the bottoms of myContinue reading “Feeling the Ground Gives me the Feels”

Are You Grateful for the Abundance that Earth Provides?

On this week that we’re celebrating Earth Day, I’ve been thinking about the myriad of ways in which the earth provides for us. Water for drinking, bathing, and simply enjoying.

It’s truly amazing how bountiful this planet is.  In recent months, I’veContinue reading “Are You Grateful for the Abundance that Earth Provides?”

I Finally Get the Hype About Roses; They’re Magnificent

I used to think roses were overrated. To be honest, they’re still not my favorite. But also … I LOVE THEM! Roses are absolutely beautiful. They grow in an array of colors and shapes, unfurling petals in a multitude of designs. A great addition to practically any bouquet. Fresh roses smell divine. To me, rosesContinue reading “I Finally Get the Hype About Roses; They’re Magnificent”

Let’s Be Real: How “Motivated” Are You Feeling Right Now?

I’ve noticed a shift on social media. I think we’re so traumatized by the year we just had that people have left the “new year, new me” memes in the past. I haven’t seen as many, “Let’s leave X,Y,Z in 20XX” as I’ve seen before. I think many of us have resigned to the ideaContinue reading “Let’s Be Real: How “Motivated” Are You Feeling Right Now?”

Winter: A Time for Quiet Reflection

To be honest, it also probably helps that I don’t have to commute to work everyday and wear a bunch of layers 🙂 As an empath who needs a lot of solitary time, I also appreciate winter because it’s quieter and fewer people are out.Continue reading “Winter: A Time for Quiet Reflection”

How to be Present in Nature Part VI: Listen

I find the simplest thing to do while being in nature is to listen. Typically, we’re walking the streets with our headphones on, exercising in the park while listening to music, or talking to someone on the phone — we’re preoccupied with keeping a sound barrier between us and the world. These days, I spendContinue reading “How to be Present in Nature Part VI: Listen”
