Happy Winter Solstice Gods & Goddesses!

{Winter Solstice: The shortest day of the year & the dawn of the Winter season. Winter is a season of introspection. This day carries with it powers of regeneration, renewal, & self-reflection. Said to be the day when “the Moon births the Sun”.}

Love & light on this glorious Solstice. I hope you spiiirits have been amply enjoying it thus far. Triiini & I have definitely been embracing this day and the new energy & power of this season. We had sacred tea time, sacral dancing,  a ritual appreciation ceremony, & letter burning.

What rituals did you all commence today to usher in the energy of this new season?

The Sacred Art of Letter Burning

.{The Sacred Art of Letter Burning}.

burning paper 02

Fire is a sacred and holy element. It has the ability to purify as well as solidify intention in the spiritual and physical plane.

I once used fire in a purging ceremony, where we burned up words/cards/representations of things we were purifying from our life for good and would have no more of. It was a very impactful, cleansing ceremony. One that I’d say I am still feeling the positive effects of today. However that is not use of fire I will speak about today.

This fire is set with a whole ‘nother intention. The intention to communicate your thoughts and desires concretely and directly to your higher self, your spiritual guides and the cosmos.

Letter burning is a direct path of communication with your spirit guides that is not obstructed by the mixed messages of muddled thoughts.

Letter burning is a spiritual task I have commenced numerous times, and each time, no matter what, the communications I send out are answered and the desired expressed are granted.

Here’s my step by step guide to Letter Burning:

Step 1:

PREPARE YOUR LETTER.

Genuinely contemplate the message you want to send to Spirit. You may brainstorm and write down bullet points first or even pre-write the whole letter using a phone, laptop or some other technical device. However there is a certain energy that hand-written communications carry that I find to be powerful in this practice. In this preparatory period, is important to ponder things you are grateful for as well as things you desire. Once you have the basics of what you want to communicate clearly outlined in your mind, you are ready for the next step.

Step 2:

WRITE YOUR LETTER.

Now is time to put pen to paper. Begin this process wherever you feel most comfortable doing so. I find it calming to burn incense or herbs such as sage or mugwort to bring peace and clarity to the space where you are now preparing to open your soul to the Universe. Open your letter in a spirit of gratitude and thankfulness. Show genuine respect and appreciation for all that you do have, before asking for more. As you begin to delve into your desires use positive verbage. Don’t harp on about what you don’t like and what you don’t want. Focus on what you do. Be as specific as you possibly can in your goals/desires without limiting the cosmos. This is to say that in our human forms, we have no way of knowing all of the possible outcomes of any give situation. Who is to say that what we have envisioned is the best? I like to ask for what I want very specifically in faith that I will receive it, while coupling it with a request that Spirit grant me the highest good/highest possible outcome in the area of my concern. Pretty much to say “Spirit please grant me this or better”. Only Spirit would know if there is something better for us than what our desire may be. And we wouldn’t want to close ourselves off from that possibility either. We must find balance in being specific in our desires while trusting that the Universe knows exactly how best to deliver what we want and need. End your letter with an attitude of gratitude as well.

*sidenote: your letter does not have to be a certain length either. It could be a 4 page letter or a paragraph. Nor do you need to have some massive desire to be attained. Some people even write letters requesting things as simple as their car keys to be manifest/found (hey it works!). Just as long as you feel like your message is clearly communicated to Spirit.

Step 3:

BURN YOUR LETTER.

First things first bring your letter to a place that is safe for burning. You need a safe, controlled fire source, a place where smoke can breath, and something to catch the ashes. In my personal practice I have burned letters over a large pot as well as over a grill.I almost always use a lighter or a match for my safe controlled fire source. Don’t be afraid. This should not become anything close to an uncontrollable blaze. But safety is key anytime we are dealing with fire. Make sure the entirety of your letter is burned to ash. That the fire as touch all parts of your words. Through this powerful elemental process, your words are being carried to the spirit realm. Let the ashes amply cool before disposing of them.

Step 4:

HAVE FAITH & WAIT TO RECEIVE.

As you have communicated your intentions into the cosmos, trust that it has truly heard your expression. Trust that the Universe is conspiring to grant you good…the highest good. And remain confident in this fact as you await its response. Do not become stagnant, of course. Continue to do what you can to move forward toward your goals and do not let fear creep in. The Universe is ready and willing to answer your plea. You can have what you desire!

*If you follow all these steps and for some reason your desire does not come to pass, trust that the Universe has made the choice for your highest good. Something even better for you than what you expected is coming your way. Stay open to receive it!

Goddess Rising Facial Appreciation

Hello My Lovelies!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know Triiinity & I are in the midst of our Goddess Rising Yoga Challenge! It’s been a blast growing in love & light with my fellow Goddesses and I know we shall continue to grow and ascend in positivity and self-love together. For Day 10 of the challenge, our self-loving task was to give yourself a facial. So I wanted to share my facial process with you all.

Ingredients :
Urban Oreganics Facial Mask (100% vegan)
Honey
Instant Coffee
Water

image image

SN: Did you know honey & coffee are both naturally occurring substances that are good for your skin? Coffee has anti-aging properties as it tightens and tones the skin while mutually stimulating the skin, bringing increased circulation. Honey is humectant, so it is perfect for bringing natural moisturization. It also has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties that are perfect for fighting acne. You can mix these ingredients without the use of a store bought facial mask or in addition to one and follow the steps below for amazing skin benefits!

Step 1: Mix Ingredients
{stir until mixture becomes a fine paste}

Step 2: Apply Mixture
{It is best to do this while laying down, over a towel to avoid any drippy carnage. Feel free to use your hands for application but I found this application best done with a utensil liken to a Popsicle stick shape. So a mixing stick or even the flat side of a butter knife would work fine to apply the proper spreading. I like it best when I apply a coating, let it dry for a minute or two, and then go back and apply another for a nice thick facial layer.}

Step 3: Wear Facial
{Relax and let the properties take hold. I recommend you let the mixture sit on your face for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing, for maximum benefits.}

imageimageimage

Step 4: Rinse

{Rinse mixture away with warm water. Then rinse with cool to lock the amazing effects into your pores}

Step 5: Moisturize & Enjoy Your Glow!
{Seal your skin with a light moisturizer. Enjoy the glowing effects of your after-facial radiance!}

Orgone Magick : Superior Life Energy

Greetings Lovers!

I’ve missed you all. But your Miiiri Muffin is back, with some crystal awesomeness! ❤

Triiin & I have had a flood of amazing crystals entering our lives lately. A couple weeks ago, we made a trek to House of Intuition and racked up on some crystalline critters during a Sunday Sale they were having. Crystal Haul coming soon for that one. I’ve received a crystal wand crafted by the hands Nebheru! (I must tell you all more about that one). Then Superior Life Energy sent Triiin and I a lovely Moonstone pendant & a power-packed Clear Quartz Orgone Pyramid.

SLE5

OMG

The Pendant & The Pyramid will be the today’s topic of discussion

First things first a brief synopsis of Orgonite.

ORGONITE – Organic fiberglass resin and inorganic metal shavings combined to produce an object that attracts etheric energy. They usually are crafted in a cone or pyramid shape. Orgonite generates Orgone energy, that acts as an environmental ionizer. They literally contain the ability to change the energy of any place they inhabit! Orgonite may contain crystal compounds or other metaphysical ingredients to aid in the process and add other healing benefits.

I have had some really powerful experiences with Orgonite. Orgone’s energetic offering is no joke!

SLE2

Superior Life Energy specializes in Orgonite crystal pieces. Every time I receive a piece from Superior Life Energy its always an energetic blessing. The pieces are beautiful, well made, and power-packed. These most recent pieces did not disappoint.

The Pendant

SLE4

This pendant consist of Clear Quartz, seashells, and Moonstone. It carries a strong feminine healing energy. I love wearing it during my moon rituals and in the moonlight in general. She definitely responds to the lunar vibes. I also wore here as my everyday pendant for a while as we got acclimated. This beauty definitely granted blessed vibes as I maneuvered throughout my day. Seashells combine with Clear Quartz and Moonstone give this beauty her power. Seashells carry the power and cleansing energy of the ocean. They contain a natural ability to dispel negative energy and bring a pure healing vibration. Not to mention the palpable conscript between the Sea’s energy & the Moon. Moonstone is a crystal truly connected to the Divine magic of the Moon. This stone is a great companion on one’s inward journey. Nicknamed the “Travelers Stone”, it grants protection on physical journeys as well, especially after dark. Gray & White Moonstone (like the stones included in this piece) sharpens psychic perception into the unseen, stimulating visions & dream work, while carrying all the energy and divine potential of the New Moon. This stone activates Kundalini energy in women while offering men increased emotional balance. Gotta love that moon power! Clear Quartz is a master healer. It’s vibration is actually neither a liquid nor a solid. It is a metaphysical wonder. A divine gift from Gaia. This is a readily programmable crystal and great in the use of healing all ailments, physical, mental, & spiritual as Clear Quartz contains a powerful ability to dispel negativity.

The Pyramid

SLE3

This pyramid is made of Clear Quartz & Seashells. Seashells bring the serene healing vibes of the Sea, along with their ability to clarify vibrations in their energy field. Clear Quartz is a master healer and quite the powerhouse. Its ability to transmute energy makes it the perfect compound for Orgonite. It is an excellent stone for bringing harmony and balance to ones environment. I have used this pyramid in meditation and it brings me much peace. I keep it on a secondary alter in my home (my other Superior Life Energy pyramid already has a spot on my main altar) and since its arrival I have definitely felt the its zen, healing vibes, and powerful balanced energy. I used this pyramid over my heart chakra during my most recent Full Moon ritual and I believe it brought some true balance to my heartspace that allowed room for wonderful things to transpire. I’m so glad to have added this metaphysical beauty to our collection!

SLE1

All of Superior Life Energy’s energetic blessings always give me joy. And organite definitely bring some much needed healing and balance to the mix. Coupled with the use of Clear Quartz, who can argue with stones that bring equilibrium, progression and healing in any facet of your life or being that may need it?

Crystals rock my socks!

Check out Superior Life Energy and their lovely Orgonite pieces! {IG: @superiorlifeenergy}

Do any of you own orgonite? How about Clear Quartz, in any fashion? Did you guys experience some of the effects these crystals boast? I’d love to hear your stories!

More rock love and metaphysical talk coming soon to your eyes and ears via Miiiri-baby. Look out for talk of crystal wands and crystal balls!

Goddess Body Cleanse Review

review

Hello Gods & Goddesses

I am coming to you lovelies today with the long-awaited review of the Goddess Body TeaTox Cleanse.

Last month Triiin and I did the Goddess Body Cleanse, which was created by Angela Elizabeth. This teatox contained three teas: The Mind & Spirit Herbal Blend, The Healthy Yoni Herbal Blend, & The Cleansing Herbal Blend. It also contained Belly Buster Botanicals that can be added to any beverage. The cleanse called for us to ingest these three teas daily, while also eating a mostly raw/vegan diet.

The Mind & Spirit Herbal Blend is consumed in the morning. The Healthy Yoni Herbal Blend, midday. And the Cleansing Herbal Blend at night.

tea

I will be honest. This cleanse was no easy feat for me at first. I like a lot of variety in my diet and I started off the cleanse quite bored by the raw foods I had access to. This was due largely in part that we had not had time to grocery shop just yet. Being busy, makes it harder than you think to drink 3 teas a day, even as an avid tea drinker such as myself. We managed though. Also, I think the first week is when the most major detoxing has to take place, as your body accepts the effects of these herbs and acclimates to a new diet. However, a body rejecting toxins is not its most comfortable.

Once we got past the week one woes, it got a lot easier to keep pushing. We stocked up on fruits and veggies, nuts and granola, and started putting our creative fusion on our meals again. We marinated mushrooms for the first time, which was quite nice. We got better with pre-brewing the teas, so they would be ready and available on those busier days when stopping to brew simply would not be possible. We also got better with creative ways to consistently ingest the teas and our raw foods, in general. One of the best combinative efforts of this was the TeaTox smoothies we began concocting. We could fill them with delicious fresh fruits and tasty teas to effectively fulfill both of our requirements.

Now certain effects I cannot personally attest to (such as those related to menopause, fibroids, endometriosis, etc.) because these are not ailments I am, myself, afflicted by. However, I definitely experienced the other effects this cleanse boasts. During the cleanse, I had a completely painless menstrual cycle. Completely painless. This is partially due to Goddess Body’s Yoni Oil which I have been using consistently for a year now (review coming soon on that liquid gold), but used in tandem with this cleanse, my feminine power could overcome any malady. I also found myself needing to sleep less as a whole. I had energy all day, energy all night, and I could easily subsist on 4 hours of sleep like it had been 8. I’m not an avid consumer of junk but I also found myself craving even less junk then before. Whenever I wanted something sweet, the craving was easily satiated by fruit. I work at a children’s establishment and during the time of the cleanse, with the season change, something was going around. However, with the cleanse and proper diet on my side, I was able to prevent falling victim to the circling illness.

One complaint with this mostly raw diet is that it is a LOT of snacking. Healthy snacking, but still. Loving to cook as I do, I like preparing, then sitting down to eat a home cooked meal. When we had opportunities to throw in the vegan dishes in our arsenal, we were more than pleased.

Doing the Goddess Body Cleanse reminded me of one very important thing: Listen to your body in the many ways it speaks. It will tell you what it needs.

Be discerning of the effects of what you ingest and don’t chalk up not-so-good observations up to coincidence.

I have been a Pescetarian for two years and eat quite healthily in general. As a result of this cleanse, I have learned first hand the sustainability of a vegan diet (though raw eating as a dietary plan is something I would be more likely to do in stints.) In the true spirit of listening to what my body needs, I have decided to adopt a dietary philosophy my Goddess-friend Aeon calls “Flexitarian”. It comes down to this. In many cases, labels are for others. To identify yourself to outsiders, or as a member of a particular group. Not that, that is a bad thing per se, but I am a person who likes to make lifestyle changes and I like to give myself the best chance to do so. Jumping to fit the societal label system, in this case, will not promote that kind of stable change for me. I know I am not quite ready to make that jump to Vegan (and I promised Triiin a trip to my hometown, New Orleans before we give up seafood for good, so that has to happen.) I also don’t think I could ever permanently give up traditional baked goods. But I do see that the vegan lifestyle is the healthiest sustainable lifestyle for human beings. I see the hydration, vitality, and nourishment vegan eating provides & how things like dairy and eggs are not necessary to our diet. I have become privy to how my body interacts with these things in my temple, versus only vegan things. I’d never had this problem before (or perhaps never really noticed it) but, I’ve begun to develop lactose intolerance to an undesirable degree (Which makes perfect sense when you really ponder the thought of an adult human drinking milk intended for baby cows). I’ve never been a huge fan of drinking milk at all, but after this cleanse even milk products have this effect now. I may not be ready to make a permanent jump to Vegan, but now that I have this knowledge, tested against my own body chemistry, I will do my best with what I have acquired. I know my body and I am growing in that knowingness everyday. I know my goals. This aptly named philosophy will allow me to go with the flow of what my soul sees fit at the time. I will remain accountable for what is best for my health and let that evolve in the ways and timings the Universe sees fit to guide me,

As of now my plan is to technically be a pescetarian who eats mostly vegetarian with vegan emphasis. Does that sound like a mish-mosh of confusion or what? Like should we try to say it three times fast or….?lol

Its actually not all that confusing to me. I’m simply planning to 1) Limit my seafood intake as much as possible.(attempting not to exceed 3 times/meals a week.)  2) Limit my dairy intake as much as possible (NEVER drink milk, some allowances will be made but cook with milk product as little as possible) 3) Limit egg consumption (Egg used the creation of something is fine (noodles, baked goods, etc.), but ingest eggs in their form no more than twice a week) . Drink lots of water. Eat lots of veggies. Incorporate more and more vegan things.

Now even with these stipulations, I have eaten even less of these things than I have allowed room for. I haven’t had eggs in weeks and I have even started shying away from cheese (one of my favorite guilty pleasures) more & more. I will stay in avid communication to my body and listen to what it needs to function at its highest degree. Lets see where this flexitarian diet takes me next!

Universal Reciprocity

ur

The Universe is not a negative or positive consciousness. It responds to the vibrations you emit. Think of it as a computer. It’s all a matter of what you type in the search engine that determines what you see on the screen. It’s the same with your vibes. The vibrations you put out are the ones you will receive. Today started off quite abysmally. Nothing was going smoothly and everything that could happen to upset me, did. I admit I was quite down about it at first, but I made the conscious decision to keep my energy positive, having faith that with my persistence, the energy of the day would follow.  And you know what? It most certainly did. And the day turned out even better than I could’ve imagined. So shoutout to universal reciprocity. With it, I am always the captain of my own fate.

No one or nothing can steal your joy but you. Namaste.

Saturday Morning Ramblings

IMG_20150502_083513

8:26am: It really grinds my gears when people post memes like ” I can’t roll up or twerk, but I go to work & cook” or “Queens > bad bitches” etc. Maybe because I know that I’m a composite being, full of yin & yang but I just don’t get why people are so eager to uplift themselves by looking down on other beings. Why do we feel the need to constantly come up with sects, groups, titles and other distinctions that only serve to seperate us further? To feel special and somehow uplifted by the belittling of others… I dont get it. Enlightenment is not an excuse to be pretentious. It’s not about looking down on others, now that you have all this knowledge. As we grow in enlightenment, we should be simultaneously expanding in understanding of and compassion toward the people. Not looking down on the parties we’re aiming to help. Know that you know nothing. Know that you are everything, and nothing at all. Awake from the illusion of our separateness. We are all one, from bad bitches to Queens to everyone in between. After all, I can cook, twerk, roll up, go to work, and shift the culture all at the same time. Don’t box me in. Call me ratchet spiritual. That ascended down-to-Earth type. How bout you?

HappySaturday
