Kitchari is one of my favorite foods and is Ayrvedically sound as a way to gently ease the transition to spring. As you see what is happening in nature, you can understand what is happening within. The season change is a vulnerable time, a time when we need to cultivate sweet stability for our bodily tissues. Kitchari is a perfect food, nourishing, a complete protein, easy on digestion, and delicious.

Here is a recipe below:

Ingredients:
1½ cups Rice and Dal
1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 pinches hing (asafoetida)
½ teaspoon turmeric
1 stick kombu
1 inch of burdock root
2 tablespoons ghee
6 cups water
1–2 cups chopped vegetables

Wash Rice and Dal and soak overnight. Drain and rinse.
In a medium saucepan warm the ghee. Add spices and sauté for one to
two minutes. Add rice and mung dal and sauté for another couple of minutes. Then add 6 cups of water and bring to a boil.
Once it has come to a boil reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook
until it is tender (approx. 30–45 minutes).
If you are adding vegetables to your kitchari, add the longer cooking vegetables halfway through the cooking. Add vegetables that cook faster,
such as leafy greens, near the end.
Add more water if needed. You may prefer your kitchari more like a stew or even a broth.
Makes 2 servings

Equinox Blessings

Equinox Blessings

Equinox

Blessings from my heart to yours on this powerful equinox portal. Today we whispered our prayers to the wind, made offerings to the water, and dove into the great wonder that is this life. ⁠

In sistership, we deepened into the great mystery and planted seeds of hope, connection, and gratitude forged by the fires of experience and heartbreak. ⁠

It is in the brokenness that we are strong. The togetherness that we recognize our wholeness. Wherever you are in this world, may you know we are united as one. ⁠

“On the day when⁠
The weight deadens⁠
On your shoulders⁠
And you stumble,⁠
May the clay dance⁠
To balance you.⁠
“And when your eyes⁠
Freeze behind⁠
The grey window⁠
And the ghost of loss⁠
Gets into you,⁠
May a flock of colours,⁠
Indigo, red, green⁠
And azure blue,⁠
Come to awaken in you⁠
A meadow of delight.⁠
“When the canvas frays⁠
In the currach of thought⁠
And a stain of ocean⁠
Blackens beneath you,⁠
May there come across the waters⁠
A path of yellow moonlight⁠
To bring you safely home.⁠
“May the nourishment of the earth be yours,⁠
May the clarity of light be yours,⁠
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,⁠
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.⁠
And so may a slow⁠
Wind work these words⁠
Of love around you,⁠
An invisible cloak⁠
To mind your life.”⁠
― John O’Donohue from To Bless the Space Between Us⁠

Hopi Elders’ Prophecy

June 8, 2000

 

 

 

You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered…

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Are you in right relation?

Where is your water?

 

Know your garden.

It is time to speak your truth.

Create your community.

Be good to each other.

And do not look outside yourself for your leader.

 

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.

 

And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.

 

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word ’struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

 

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
