On Sunday Jimmy and I went to The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and it was awesome. Nature is so inspiring and diverse and the ocean is its own universe! It's insane! I got to pet Bat Rays, Sting Rays, baby Hammerhead Sharks, and Moon Jellies! I had a smile on my face the whole time- Ocean medicine was needed! It was just a really awesome day! I hope you enjoy the pictures.
We got to touch a Moon Jelly ( we can't feel their stings) but we learned that plastic bags are band in Long beach because turtles and other wildlife were eating bags in the ocean because they thought they were moon jellies :( Always opt to bring your own bag or ask for paper instead!
I got to pet baby hammerheads! I was so excited and Jimmy was afraid, haha! But he was brave and did it :)
I made lots of friends!
This week in Elemental we are exploring the realm of Earth. I love how though I am one of the guides, I am learning and growing too. I feel more in tune with Earth than I ever have been before. These are snippets from this past weekend and week so far.
Jimmy and I planted peppers, squash, and watermelon! Any advice and ideas of natural and non-toxic pesticides would be great! When we were planting, I had to pause and honor a deep connection I had felt with the land... Like it was in my blood. I had never felt that before and I felt connected to my ancestors. It was beautiful.
Of course, a great grounding exercise is to just stand bare foot on Mama Earth herself. Feel her warmth and support and love. Laying on her body and just completely resting is heaven!
What better Earth medicine than super yummy food?! Jimmy out did himself (and made me fall more in love with him) by whipping up the yummy avocado snack and gorgeous salad above. He sprinkled sea salt, dill, pepper, and lime juice on the avocado! So good! And the rainbow salad had cucumber, shredded carrots, sun-dried tomato, gigantic northern white beans, and Tahini dressing all on organic greens. I think this will be a salad we will keep in our recipe book!
I have felt very grateful and blessed indeed this week. Thank you Mama Earth.
Ps. If you missed Elemental the first time, we will be launching it again in October! So stay tuned for more details! You can also follow along with us on IG (@moondaughter) with the hashtag: #elementaljourney
It's weird for me to have more time to reflect lately. A very good weird.
I'm not used to it and I thrive on pressure and deadlines.
I'm on the precipice of some huge changes which I will share soon - I am very excited for what's to come....
I have a skype meeting today with a kindred soul for an amazing project - will share soon :)
Opening space for reflection and rest welcomes in new opportunities, more flow, creativity - I need to remind myself of this.
Dreams are becoming reality.
Sometimes when things don't work out how I would like them to, they tend to be HUGE sacred blessings that I cannot deny.
I am so very grateful.
