I’m bringing my own plastic-ware

Yes, really, listen why I’m bringing my own plastic-ware here

While it may not be a sword out of my hands, it’s always something else! Pic from Pixabay.

Ugghhhh… Yes, you dropped it, spilled it, knocked it over, stepped on it, sat on it… need I go on? Would love to hear your clumsy experiences folks! And yes, clumsiness can be attributed to spiritual growth. Listen to my podcast, and share your thoughts you lovely, beautiful being, on being human.

Many blessings folks! Sandi

Leaving the nest?

Growing up… leaving the nest. Vid: by Sandi, Northern New Mexico.

I nearly had a panic attack. Outside, the sound of birds is a welcome and wonderful song. A world of music that never stops. But when I heard hungry little fledglings that are chirping in desperate need, I went looking for a ladder. Because if something happened to mom, well, Sandi to the rescue!

As I was about to get a ladder, and began my ascent up to bird palace, I noticed the mom fly back to the nest, where she tried to push an anxious baby back into safety, as it seemed to be hanging over the nest nearly losing its footing. She pushed the baby back further into the nest and she flew away when she saw me, so I came back inside.

Don’t worry, I’ll keep an eye out!

Keep growing folks, love one another, and give each other a helping hand. Many blessings, Sandi

I made a mistake

New podcast episode! Thanks for the listen!

Well, we all make mistakes right? When I record my podcast episodes on Anchor, I try to record only once. So, that accomplishes a few things: I get to be as authentic as possible – no script; I am able to feel relaxed, and under no pressure; I have a lot of freedom to say what I want/and/or need to say; and lastly, I hope to goodness I sound ok in the end! So, that being said, I correct myself in the description for my O’vehlu podcast, ‘I made a mistake’ episode. I could’ve redone it. But, I was outside, the crickets yammering away, and the near full blood moon, almost full… in two days. I was under a dark sky, with tons of smattering of stars, and the cat just hanging out, as if he were listening intently to every word, so no, I wasn’t going to re-record!

Here’s the pic of this amazing full moon event, with so many other planetary aspects going on at the same time.

Northern New Mexico skies: full blood moon & lunar eclipse coming soon: May 26, 2021

Apparently, there’s tons going on astrologically, but really, I think A LOT goes on all the time. Have you ever imagined what it would be like to spin around in freezing space, with tons of debris, moons, planets, exploding stars, black holes, dark energy, etc., in chaotic, sporadic, devastating speeds?

I prefer watching the moon, in my very small corner of my New Mexico, and just enjoy what happens in the space of seconds… I’ll leave it here!

Many blessings folks! Sandi

Guided and rerouted

Hello folks, I’m a bit speechless, but not really, or else I wouldn’t be writing this…

The making of Sandi’s Sacred Spritz, has been such an amazing personal experience. Sharing it has been a priority for me. Financial attachment isn’t important – getting it to the people that need it, is. This morning, I wondered how I was going to incorporate my intentions with the finished product and getting it out there.

I went to Taco Bell, (please don’t judge! Walmart is next door!) to get a bite to eat, in Espanola, NM.

I don’t make it a habit to eat out this way, but if you twist my arm… as I waited in line to order at the window, I noticed a small group of people gathered around a table. There were a few things on the table. There was a sign hanging in front. It said, ‘Barrios Unidos‘. I was very curious to see what that was about, but I was in line, and my grumbling stomach won out.

I ordered, paid, and decided to park next to this mysterious set-up. Hunger aside, I walked over and there was a lovely woman, with kind eyes, and endless patience speaking to a young lady. They both sat on a cooler. The young lady looked unkempt. She looked scared, and tired. I didn’t mean to interrupt, but I asked the dark-haired woman what they were giving or selling. She explained to me gently, that she was in the middle of explaining what the first-aid kit was for. She finished her conversation, and then walked over to me. I asked her what they were offering. She explained it was an outreach for people struggling with addiction. They were giving out these amazing first-aid kits, snacks, face masks among other goodies.

Barrios Unidos First Aid Kit

After introducing herself as Lupe Salazar, she explained that they are supporting those who are struggling with drug addiction. And they are not interested in judging, only helping, and supporting in any way they can. I told her I was happy to know there was a program like this out there. She offered me a bag of KIND Clusters, dark chocolate vanilla nuts & fruit. Delish… I thanked her and then she said she wanted me to have a first-aid kit, but there were other people behind me, and I didn’t (or so I thought) need one. I told her that other people needed them more than me. Then she said they had enough to give away.

She brought out a kit, and then opened it, and explained everything that was in it. In the pics shown here, I don’t show all the goodies. But here’s a list:

  • Comfort & Support Salve for COVID times
  • Yarrow Flower Styptic
  • Wound Healing Salve
  • One packet of Arnica Montana 200C for bruises, sore muscles
  • One packet of Ignatia Amara 200C; shock, Grief
  • One packet of Mellifica 200C; stings, Bites Swellings
  • Organic Calendula chapstick
  • A small vial of Breathe well essential oil
  • Vial of Bergamot essential oil
  • Vial of Lavender essential oil
  • Baby Orajel
  • Triple antibiotic
  • Chest rub (because everyone uses it and it’s a household remedy!)
  • 2oz hand sanitizer
  • Packages of bandages and disinfectant wipes
  • Tierra Madres Nopal + Pina herbal tea bags
  • Higado Deto-X Herbal Tea Clean Liver (Lupe told me that liver problems are associated with anger.)
  • And, a bundle of cedar smudge stick

You might be able to imagine my surprise. I was very happy and gladly accepted the kit. She then told me about a support group for grandmothers who are taking care of their grandchildren. Which I plan on attending. I then asked if I could donate my Spritz as part of the First aid kit. She was very happy that I offered this. My 2oz lavender, and lemongrass bottles should fit in this kit!

Folks, donating can mean sharing links, word of mouth, volunteering, giving… in whatever form that comes. Please visit Barrios Unidos, here, and lend your support!

Many, many blessings, Sandi.

The making of Sandi’s Sacred Spritz

Making a mess, making my Sandi’s Sacred Spritz and loving every minute of it!

Hi ya’ll! I thought I’d post a vid of the making of Sandi’s Sacred Spritz. I had tons of fun, but it’s tricky… finding the right angles, light, camera, camera position, background, sound or no sound, and I’m sure I’m missing something. The one thing I know, is that my process didn’t change one bit, during filming. It is what it is – the vid, here it is.

So what is it? About a year ago, I saw an image of three things: holy water, purified water, and salt. It’s only recently that I had the guidance to add Lavender Essential Oil. I started with a 2.7oz bottle. Then, it evolved to a spay bottle. I began giving these to essential workers. Then, I realized why not other people that needed it?

Divine guidance, inspiration, or whatever you’d like to express it as, has its own origins. For many years, I thought I had to be a writer. I ended up writing three books. My favorite is Light and dark; a Pause in Writingan autobiographical novella.

But, as layers of challenges and unresolved issues presented themselves, I was drawn to healing. And writing more books just wasn’t in the cards. So, I stopped. Writing. This is a self-published endeavor. One with sweat, love, doubt, and constant mind-changing from one extreme to another. Any writer will tell you, books don’t write themselves. Great writers are full of great advice. I created the cover image, I was the writer, the proofreader, the editor, and the publisher. I will always appreciate and remember the writing of these books, as the greatest feat of my life.

So, I’ve been blogging. I write when I am inspired. Because the advice to write everyday, simply does not apply to me. It may, and does to other writers. I’m okay with that.

Enjoy every moment

Sometimes, successful writers drive that point: write, write, write, keep writing. As someone who kept writing, I can say that the process is magical. It takes you to a place you would never wander all on your own. The words, the energy, the imagination will take you there. Because you see, a good writer will do that with their story. I remember having a conversation about two years ago with my sister. I maintained adamantly, that my life would end if I didn’t keep writing. I was dead wrong. Here I am, still alive. A goof ball of sorts.

In the end, well, beginning, middle, and everywhere in between, I’m me. A sometimes writer, Sandi’s Sacred Spritzer, and whatever else you’d like to call me.

So folks, thanks so much for putting up with all this to get to my Video!

A very special refill

I drove in the rain today – here, in northern New Mexico, we need rain. That doesn’t mean it’s not needed anywhere else!

It lined up nicely with my mission today, which was to see Father Valentine at Santo Tomas church in Abiquiu, New Mexico. I was due to for blessed refill… read here for more details!

Why regret it?

What’s the difference between regrets and mistakes?

Click here to listen to my podcast!

Why make a decision or a choice, if ultimately, it may lead to regrets?

What’s the difference between a mistake and a regret? In my opinion… a mistake is when we do the best we can with what we had at that moment. A regret, is doing it anyway – there’s an inner voice – intuition, that will signal red flags. I’m learning a lot recently, from a family member who regrets a land deal that has played out in the last month, in some difficult and challenging ways.

Come on over and listen to my podcast and get more details… what are your thoughts on the difference is between regrets and mistakes?

Many blessings folks! Sandi.
