I’ll Talk My Latte With Sign Language

Starbucks Opens It’s Debut Sign Language Shop in Washington, D.C.

When you walk into the brand new Washington D.C store, don’t expect the typical mermaid cup filling, green apron-clad caffeineista.

What’s so unique you ask?  These lovely baristas can speak coffee in sign language!

Here are some even more awesome reasons why you need to visit if you are ever in the Washington D.C. Area:

  • Located at a section of H Street Northeast, where Gallaudet University is near by, the world’s only liberal arts college for the deaf, and those with hearing issues.
  • Umbrella’s located at the front of the store, not only have “Starbucks” on them but they also include “Starbucks” in American Sign Language fingerspelling.
  • Exclusive mugs for this location that can only be found here.
  • No ambient music
  • Two way communication tablets for questions such as “What kind of milk?”
  • Chairs and Tables will be lower to be help with visibility as well as bright lights with a matte finish to prevent as much glare from the lighting as possible!

These are just a few of the things you will notice at this lovely location.

I sure hope we see more of these Starbuck’s coming to other locations nationwide!

The Hardest Thing I Have Ever Done

Moving On, Moving Forward and Doing Me

October’s Samhain 2018, really has definitely created a level of abundance, reflection,and growth this past year.

I let go of someone I was head over heals for in both this life and past lives last December, we mutually agreed with all the feelings we had and me trying to work on the relationship with my boyfriend that it would be best.

Enter September 2018, I really began realizing my retail job, my family values, and my own desires were not being tended to!

I chose to settle for a guy, and by NO means am I going to sit here and bring him down, because he is an amazing person however, he isn’t the right person for me.    If he ever sees this blog post I do wish him all the abundance and blessings in the world.

My ex is a gamer, and I am not, I don’t mind video games, but he would come home after a hard day’s work, and trust me I get the need to chill for a few hours, but when he came home I would be pushed to the side for video games.

After four years, and a surprise return from my soul mate from past lives, and this life, I decided to be upfront and tell him this broomstick wasn’t flying no more.

There wasn’t a fight, not even a disagreement, and I knew then he knew just as much I did this circle of love wasn’t love anymore, it was merely two sparkless people doing their best to make something work that wasn’t meant to be.

I thank him from the bottom of my heart for all the tickle fights, late night laughter, and helping me realize that I need,want, and deserve more.  I know he will find someone he will fall head over heels for, but I am not that woman for him and that’s okay!

 

Moving Forward…

Being a reiki master, and intuitive empath, I have come to notice and be able to be aware of when energy is not alive anymore, or a stagnant stalemate.

Being at my job in the last two years, I have had more back and hip issues, not to mention being sick a lot more than I ever have.

I have came to realize, that the gained weight, the sickness, and the soreness and stiff legs, is a telltale sign of not just needing to get healthy, but a sign that this job is no longer serving me.

I can feel my soul die every time I am there, this is how I know this part of the journey is over.

My mindset when I am there is to just “hurry to get things done, do what i have to do without much else care”, I know that mindset is a burned out mind of trying to find happiness in a place that makes me scream for help on the inside while I am there.

I have decided to move forward, that being said i am moving to Ohio, to be with my soul mate, and create and build the life and business for myself I know that I need to and deserve to have.

I am sad to leave my family here but they are only a flight away or a phone call, or skype video call.

To my family if you ever see this, I love you to the moon and back you are my world and I can’t wait for you to be proud of the woman I will become.

Namaste,

Manda

 

The Divine Creation of Spells

Must Know Tips For Maidens,Mothers,and Crones

It’s October people and you know what that means…Samhain is coming!! yaaayyyyyyy!

Okay enough of that, let’s cut to the chase, or cauldron I should say.

Spells do not need to be complex and I guarantee you, you’ve done a few spells and may have not even realized it!

Here are some tips whether you are new to the craft, or seasoned(with sage, tee hee!), I hope these tips help you get the most effective results you wish for.

  1. Keep Your Intentions Clear!- I can’t stress this enough!  If you go into a spell unsure of what you want, your results will not be as you desire.  For example you want to move somewhere and want to land your dream job.  Instead of something like “My intentions with this spell is to move somewhere and land my dream hustle”, try being more specific like “My intentions with this spell is to move to Lorain,OH and land my dream job as a blogger and tarot reader, where I will attract much abundance and joy”.  The more clear you are with your intentions the more you are able to achieve all you desire!
  2. Keep Your Energy Clear- Self explanatory but I will explain.  If you go into a spell after a stressful day and jumbled mind it makes it harder to focus and weave your amazing energy to create all that you yearn for. Before conducting a spell make sure you take a salt bath and meditate, you’ll be much more powerful and focused I promise!
  3. Keep Your Circle Closed- Before you begin your spell and after meditation it is quite wise to keep your circle closed and your shields up, you don’t want uninvited guests coming to your mystical party do you?
  4. Research- You should be doing this for at least 3 days before you decided when you want to conduct your spell, it is important to know which deities, will best assist you, and what kind of offerings you should have.  Also, knowing which stones and herbs or metals, is another important part of spell work you should be well versed on, so you know exactly what you need.  Preparing is key spiritual warrior!
  5. Use What You Have- You don’t need the most expensive unicorn wand, or newest herbal smudge stick out there, you can use simple kitchen items, or even house hold goodies that you already own, and if you don’t have something and can’t afford it, you use energy, it’s also typically more powerful than buying a spell kit you really don’t need or can afford. Cheers to budget friendly brujas!

What tips do you follow for your magical workings?

Meditation of the Month

Riding A Horse

Hello lovely souls! Today I bring you a meditation for the month of October!

Horses are known to be symbolic of spiritual journeys so I thought of this meditation. You can put on any incense, herbs, tea or other meditation pairings of your choice.

Steps:

1. Find a quiet spot whether outdoors or even your room will do!

2. Take 5 deep cleansing breathes

3. Allow your mind to go blank visualize a white room.

4. Before you open this door visualize a glowing white or gold shield around you this will protect and guard you, during meditation.

5. Imagine yourself walking out the door of the room to a pasture. The grass is freshly cut, it is a luscious green color. You may visualize any plants you wish to be in your surroundings or let them come to you.

6. In this pasture there is a well walk up to it and place any fear or negative or unwanted emotion into it and empty it down the well.

7. You see a path you walk down it and see a single stall stable.

8. You see a beautiful horse(let the image come to you of what this horse looks like).

9. You offer this horse an apple as gratitude and a kind gesture.

10. You saddle up, or hop on your horse bareback as you do you canter to a field, here you canter ever so gracefully and gently allow yourself to let healing gentle light run from the top of your head to your toes to the horse and go the earth.

11. You come up to a pond you hop off your horse you walk over to the pond with your horse.

12. Ask your horse “what do I need to know or work on? How can I do so? ”

13. Look into the pond and allow the answer to come

14. When you are ready go back to your horse, canter back to the barn, when you return you will groom and remove the saddle. As you groom your horse thank them for all the lovely knowledge and tools they have acquainted you with.

15. Allow your horse to roam free in the meadow at the stables. Walk back the same way you came to the white door open the door and visualize your physical body.

16. Open your eyes and jot down any necessary notes you feel is important.

Namaste!

You’re So Salty!

Why Salt Baths Are Beneficial Spiritual Healers

I love what I do as a tarot reader and reiki energy healer.  I love that I have abilities and that I have the blessing of working on them daily.

I started noticing about 6 months ago that I started falling very ill and extremely drained after a reading session or healing session.

It was then that I asked a friend and they recommended salt baths.  I found that pink Himalayan salt soak from Dr Teal’s is my fave for this purpose.

Before I get anymore into salt baths I am going to give you a list of symptoms that you may resonate with that tell me when I need a salt bath:

  • Feeling very warm, without being sick
  • Sweating
  • Sensation of unbearable exhaustion and wanting to cry because of being so tired
  • Nightmares, and “night mare like visions
  • Feeling tired just from looking at a tarot deck, or divination tool
  • Feeling congested with your aura or energy wheels

 

This is how I feel after an intense healing or reading session so what I love to do is to take a salt bath either at night as soon as I can or right when I wake up. I add in two hand fulls of Dr Teal’s Pink Himalayan Salt soak.  I let it sit in the water and allow to the tub to fill a little before I sit down.

While I am in the bath I will usually have meditation music and also re align and give my self reiki treatments while in the bath.

When I come out I feel like  a brand new alive and awakened woman!

Have you tried salt baths?

 

Blast From the Past

Signs You May Be Experiencing a Past Life

Akashic Records are on the rise, and everyone wants to know about them, but there sometimes is a point that you need to take a step back, or may be in need of a reiki healing session in order to help you let go of past life trauma.

  • You start liking things that make no sense, and you not have liked these at one time this life.  This means for example, I never liked greens or dark green colors before but this life as soon as I got more into druidry I had the worst itch for velvet dark green renaissance style dresses.  Come to find out in my past life I wore a lot of renaissance style dresses.
  • You miss someone and you don’t know who it is.  I began hurting to a point being around other people killed me so I had to take a step back.   I began writing these letters I didn’t who they were to, and it helped relieve that pain.  Come to find out I was writing to my husband in a past life and he is my twin flame and I have been reunited with him this life( not together yet).
  • You have a fear of a specific landscape.  I have seen this a few times with clients.  What this means is that you are fearful of something such as open bodies of water.  I had a client who was terrified of this and come to find out she was actually drowned in a past life.
