Things I'm exploring and loving this month. 

Manifestation: I have been following the work of Lacy Phillips from Free & Native and since coming across her website have devoured her all her blog posts, instagram, signed up to her newsletters (some people just really resonate). I have done Opulence, and am going to do Shadow next. Have already manifested some pretty cool shiz. 

Podcast: The Life Stylist by Luke Storey. I loved this ep. 

Drinking: Hot cacao. Adding ashwagandha (ayurvedic herb) + peppermint EO (because DELISH) + coconut butter and blend. 

Eating: Idli (fermented rice and lentils) from Nalini's in Bondi Junction. Easy to digest, GF, light, fluffy and served with dhal. 

Listening to:  Fortunate Son by Donavan Frankenreiter. 

Diffusing: Ylang ylang, grapefruit and lemon. 

Journalling: This is a good place to start. Some journalling prompts and a deep imagining to allow you to reprogram subconscious beliefs. 

Morning ritual: Vedic meditation (I use Insight Timer which lets me know when 20 minutes has passed)

Reading: Not Just Lucky by Jamila Rizvi. Recommended by two of my expanders, Zoe Foster Blake and Tess from Smack Bang Designs, I knew I had to read it. If you're a woman, and you work (or even if you don't) you need to read this book. Yep, so basically every woman. 

Evening ritual: Foot soaks with magnesium salts and doTERRA's Zendocrine (the detoxification blend). My acupuncturist has noticed an imbalance in my liver (it all makes so much sense), so along with regular acupuncture, reducing my toxic load, and eating a clean diet, I am using Zendocrine to help rid the body of any unwanted substances. 

Hack: On Tuesdays, I am on a computer and under fluorescent light all day. By night time, my eyes are so sore and tired. I've started wearing these Baxter Blue computer glasses (eyewear for the digital age) which have helped loads.
