Divine Inspiration

Lemony Sandi’s Sacred Spritz

Yup, you guessed it… Lemongrass essential oil, blessed holy water from St. Thomas church in Abiquiu, NM; blessed by father Valentine Phu Ngoc Au, and purified H20. Oh, you didn’t guess this? No worries – that’s it. Those are the ingredients for this spritz bottle inspired yesterday and made today. When spirit calls, there is no, ‘sorry I missed your call, please leave a message at the beep.’ Or, press the ignore button and hope they don’t call again… or maybe later. When you feel like chatting, dealing, or whatever we do when we press the ignore button – which by the way I never do, because in my opinion, it’s rude.

My divine inspiration has no time limit. I feel the love and words flow. I heard lemongrass essential oil yesterday and bought some today. In this spritz in particular, there are only three ingredients. I don’t use lemongrass for anything, and in fact, I didn’t know too much about it. These are the amazing benefits of lemongrass essential oil – it nearly knocked me off my feet:

  • Anxiety
  • Skin problems
  • Muscle aches; headaches
  • Indigestion
  • scalp problems

…to name a few. Aromatherapy is quite simply amazing. Want to know more about this cool oil? Click here.

So, basically, though I personally have never used lemongrass, I was drawn to work with it and use it in my spritz. I always put together a test bottle, and I have to say, I think this is heaven. I immediately calmed down and had a joyful reaction.

I’d like to thank my angels, but most especially God, for inspiring me to put this together. I love it, and would love to share it. I’m starting off with a select few bottles and will adjust accordingly in the production of it. This is an amber-colored bottle, 2oz plastic spray bottle. As with anything adult, please use discretion around children, and in the use of direct skin contact, as it may cause an allergic reaction.

Sandi’s Sacred Spritz should be affordable; I’m accepting donations for this one. Pay what you can!

Many blessings folks, and be safe out there! Sandi

Budding Trees

Cottonwood bliss

I came to say

the wicked in their ways

fall away

as fickle, fragile, dry,

brittle

much can be said

as little

gone awry

you and I

the dry earth crackles and creaks

it is my thirst

my survival seeks

I see you

the reflection in my leaves

leave me dry

or water me high

there

Is

no

in between

The Art of Feeling at Peace

The Blessed Virgin Mary

Well… to be honest, there is no art to feeling peace. I do need to mention though that there appears to be an art to everything in life. There is a grace that humans possess, that we seem to have forgotten. I bought this amazing piece of art on wood, from a local vendor. I try to buy local as much as possible; this piece, as is the case with most of the items the seller carries in their small outdoor shop. Regardless of where it came from.

I feel like peace is something that is likened to a wisp of smoke, or fog on a rainy day. It can be fleeting, but can permeate our entire being given the chance. Inviting peace is like inviting a person over for dinner, or drinks, or whatever. Peace can be a very welcome guest; friendly, endearing, fun, happy, exciting, chill, and very much full of grace.

How long we choose to keep this guest over and in our midst, is our choice. Peace isn’t complicated. It’s not even misunderstood. It’s quite simple. As I compare it to a guest, I imagine the perfect room or space it will occupy. Will it have it’s own wing of my house? Should I dare to think it would like room service? Or, that I can expect it to mingle when it wants? Does it need its own space? What will my guest – PEACE need? OR do I need it, more than it needs me?

Mother Mary, might say, ‘It’s silly to overthink it – peace will always be welcome as long as you make room for it’. I agree.

Many blessings, Sandi

Missing Pieces

Putting it together

Today

I saw

what was missing

the piece left a gaping

hole

too much space

in between

no, they can’t be forced

find the missing piece

that connects

all

all, and no more than that

the missing piece

toss it, the whole thing?

why bother

otherwise?

Many blessings, Sandi

Bring yourself

Love to doodle

When was the last time you asked yourself: How are you, no really, how are you doing?

When was the last time you gave yourself a true pat on the back?

When was the last time you gave yourself a break? Not the kind that others’ define as ‘a break’?

When was the last time you asked, ‘am I really helping, or harming someone when I think it’s a good idea to offer my help?

When did you ask yourself, am I happy? If not, what can I do to get there?

When did you last ask yourself, am I good enough for others’ or is it really that I need to be good enough for myself?

When was the last time you asked yourself anything of really, true, deep, and self-loving intentions?

Many blessings,

Sandi

Gone fishing

Gone fishing or juggling?

Illusion is everything… or not?

We choose what we see, we see what we choose. I see a woman juggling. But maybe she’s performing a samurai dance? Or she’s fishing?

I see all of it. All actions and those unseen, at the same time in different dimensions. In fact, the image itself, wasn’t intentional. Life is like that; unintentional. And when its not, well, the endless cycle continues.

What I create, has meaning.

What are you creating that can shape you into unimaginable things?

Many blessings 🙏, Sandi.

Why me

Sandi’s Sacred Spritz

One day

I floated just enough

to graze the clouds

a fleeting moment of bliss

only to realize

I had to make this sacred

spritz

why me?

I asked God

Why not, He replied

and so the mixing began

the prep delicate and slow

the labeling a loving labor

of sorts,

a promise of each bottle

belonging to one person…

Is it you?

Emotionally bandaged

Love to doodle

Yikes… A Saturday full of weirdness. Add that to emotional growth and healing and you have a bruised heart. Maybe a mind too? I very rarely write in color. Today seems to be one of those days that you simply don’t know if you’re up, down, sideways, or laid out.

Bandaged, but not damaged.

I can’t seem to stress enough to my ego – you don’t control.

… Anything. Every breath I take isn’t mine. It’s oxygen every living energetic particle/molecule breathes. It’s the earth telling us, ‘yes, you can be here. I will breathe with you’. I’m honored to be a part of that process. To be able to live, because I can breathe. Yet, life is in, and of itself, a painful process. But God/universe/spirit/higher power, etc., has a sense of humor.

There are appears to be a fire burning in the small village where I live. It seems to have burned homes around us. I heard sirens, but it didn’t occur to me that me and my family could be burned up in an odd freak inferno, to be continued…

As I sit here writing this. It’s like, ‘well, ok, another problem on my list’. I’m not afraid of dying. I’m afraid of not having lived my purpose. My path. I think I’ll just end it here in case I need to quickly pack my animals and family and drive off into the sunset.

Many blessings, Sandi

Ohhh-awwhhh, SSS

Sandi’s Sacred Spritz

Life giving water. Every day, several days a week, we drink water throughout the day. The focus being, the replacement of the water we lost on that given day, or days before.

The consensus seems to be around 73-78 percent of water-bound human bodies in existence as we know it. So, staying hydrated is totally essential for our most robust life, or lack thereof, a life threatening possibility.

When I was divinely guided to make this spray with only 4 ingredients, it seemed simple. Uncomplicated. Water is the unspoken life-giver, that we often overlook.

Whether you’re a great swimmer, make trips to the beach, an adventurous pirate seeking ocean thrills, or cruising on luxury boats, being in/ on the water is a must for some.

Some people, are happy with bottles of water that they carry around. My spritz, gives immediate miniature moments of ocean spray, only in a bottle with sea salt, holy water from the river Jordan, and lavender essential oil.

I carry a 1oz bottle in my purse and am loving spraying lavishly in my surroundings, wherever I may be. May you also find your happy water place!

Many blessings, Sandi🙏🏼.
