- Soak almonds overnight in a bowl – not pictured
- Put 2 cups almonds and 8 cups water in a blender – image 1
- Add vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon – image 2 (I don’t measure exactly – approx. 2tbsp vanilla, but you can get an idea of how much I used – see top of water). You can always add more later so don’t go crazy.
- Blend everything together for 1 min.
- Place cheese cloth over a bowl and poor in the blended mixture – image 3 (I find it helpful to tape down the cheese cloth to my bowl so I can strain a lot without worrying about the cheese cloth falling into the bowl.
- Strain the cheese cloth. It will take a while for all the milk to come out and you have to squeeze the bag – image 4
- Bottle and enjoy. This makes 4 jars that last 4-5 days in the fridge. I soak more almonds than what I need and place them in a separate bowl and keep in the fridge to snack on. They are softer after soaking and really good to eat plain or add to granola or cereal.
This is not super sweet – which is my preference. I typically use my almond milk for smoothies or to poor over granola which both are already sweet enough so this recipe works well. If you include it as part of your weekly prep, you have enough for the entire week.
I’m always looking for ways to eat cleaner and healthier, especially in my profession. A toxic body can make energy work and mediumship more challenging. As soon as I tried this recipe, I knew it was a keeper. Clean, super simple, and easy to add to my Sunday meal prep.
You’ve probably seen them around but didn’t think to give them a second look. Or maybe you did and just wrote them off as another type of fancy air freshener. Truth is these little lamps can work wonders when it comes to balancing out the energy of your home or office space. We all know that cars, factories, smoke, dust, etc. contributes to air pollution. However, what you may not have known is that computers, televisions, microwave ovens, air conditioners, cell phones, tablets, and all our fancy electronic devices are constantly emitting excessive amounts of positive ions into the air. Positive ions drain your body’s energy. Salt Crystal Lamps help balance out the ions by naturally emitting negative ions restoring the natural air quality similar to a waterfall or seashore. Basically removing contaminants from the air, and because of their negative ions, they naturally enhance mood and relaxation as well as concentration. Not to mention soothing to look at.
They are made from natural salt crystals mined in the Himalayas. You can use them anywhere in your home, office, meditation room, etc. They do have hydroscopic properties (draws water from the surrounding atmosphere – as well as any foreign particles that may be in the water). As the lamp warms up, the water evaporates back into the air leaving the particles trapped inside the salt.
If you or a family member experience allergies, coughing, asthma, challenges with sleeping, or sluggish energy levels, a Himalayan salt lamp may help. By breathing in and being exposed to a lot of positive ions, the cilia (microscopic hairs) in the windpipe become less effective at keeping the contaminants out of your lungs. When the cleansed vapor is expelled back into the air, this helps to clear the cilia so it aids your body in filtering the air you breathe in.
Because it is hydroscopic, you need to turn it on at lest 30 minutes a day to avoid moisture build-up. If you are going on vacation don’t plan on using the lamp for long periods of time, simply put a plastic bag over the lamp to protect it from humidity.
On a recent vacation to Mesa Verde National Park, we attended an educational ceremony on the ancestral people of that region. I have always been a firm believer in the importance of rituals (as are most energy workers). If you search any ancient culture, you will find a plethora of various rituals that were sacred to each of these cultures. One of my favorites is that of blessing the earth prior to establishing a village. This was done by incorporating elaborate dress, beating of drums, and dancing all around the area. If you dissect this on an energy level, it makes perfect sense.
- Setting the intention to bless the ground.
- Incorporating colors into the elaborate dress (and vibration with the use of shells incorporated into the design).
- Vibrational rhythmic energy with the intensity of drums.
- Dancing – taking physical action as well as matching the energy vibration of the drums and the energy of the individual with that of the earth.
There are so many examples of ancient cultures establishing rituals. This experience has made me realize just how significant they are in working with universal source energy. I know that finding my own personal rituals has not only been an extremely healing experience but also makes me feel connected to my spirit guides and ancestors. If you are searching for a way to incorporate rituals that are more personal to you, be open, ask your guides and allow yourself to play. Rituals and right action should trigger a sense of well-being at a souls level.
