Sonic Bloom | The Weedmaps Tent w/ Healthy Honeys & The Stoned Housewife

Sonic Bloom was a few months back but the healing that comes from dancing your ass off and smoking delicious Cannabis all weekend never fades away.

I was granted the opportunity to be a vendor at Sonic Bloom by some magic I manifested months prior. Little did I know, I would wind up in the WeedMaps tent all weekend with a Sponsor badge and free rein on the festival grounds.

We arrived on Thursday and this was unlike any festival experience I have had in the past. I go the VIP route usually and I wind up being in the right place at the right time. Each time getting a cosmic upgrade to enhance my experience. The few times I have been upgraded were

  • Phases of the Moon 2014: Bought GA passes Drove 12 hours and the gates were closed due to weather. I (4 months prego) knew something was coming. That something was Someone, named Chino and he hooked my husband and our pal up with All Access Artist passes. We got in that night after everyone was turned away and got backstage with Alex and Allison Grey. Phases was only a one and done festival but it was some of the most epic music I have ever seen. Google It.
  • Hulaween 2013-14-15: VIP upgrades each year from our production crew, our own golf cart, wedding perks, free drinks.
  • String Cheese Incident: Chicago 2015: 3 Night run at The Aragon: Backstage passes and Artist Access.
  • Electric Forest 2013-14: VIP upgrades, backstage viewing of the Saturday night Cheese show, we got engaged, and up close backstage view of Ms. Lauryn Hill.

So my music experiences did not hold expectation in any form. Sonic Bloom did not disappoint. Two days before we left, we got upgraded to be in the Weedmaps tent, Sponsor badges, and VIP Car Camping. We unloaded and set up camp and made our way down to the biggest shaded tent in the festival.

Perk 1: Water Blowing Fan and Electricity

Perk 2: It’s the Weed Maps tent so we blazed up the Volcano. We used a meditative blend from Herbs and Arts in Denver. This helped us relax the long days of curing hangovers and sore body parts.

We sat up our booth and laid out all the amazing products. One of our booth mates was Hempower from Boulder and I was hooked on their CBD Powder Drink Blends. They offered 4 different flavors

  1. Relief For Pain and Inflammation: with Turmeric and Boswella
  2. Calm- For Anxiety and Stress: with Ashwagandha and L-Theanine
  3. Protect- For Brain Heatlh: with Brahmi & Gotu Kola
  4. Balance- For General Wellness: With Maca and Reishi
Here is Alex! Smiling always and giving the people what they need!

Come and Toke it was also in the tent! Check them out here.

Perk 3: The CATI guy was so much fun and gave us all free hoodies and shared with us how he was making changes in Cannabis reform in his home state. He came all the way up from Texas!

On either side of us were our crew who we would be hanging out with for the majority of the festival. Our little block of cannabis advocates. This was the best neighborhood we could have asked for.

Denver Terpenes was on one side and Dave’s Hippy Oil (an organic blend of quartz and love charged essential oils) on the other. David had brought a Margaritaville machine, since the tent had mad electricity, so he kept the Honeys in tip top shape with superfood smoothies throughout the weekend. Plus his Hippy oil saved our chapped lips and bug bites from being overbearing.

The Healthy Honeys product line is the essential festival survival kit.

Nothing puts a smile on someones face when you tell them that they need to get some of the CBD lubricant. We had rave reviews about it all weekend. The skin cream helped with the sun burn, the muscle cream helped reduce a swollen fluid filled knee(this guy was dancing with us front row at Gigantic Cheese Biscuits after he got the cream and the night before he was in very visible pain.) The isolate went into all of our food and the bath bombs helped relax after the 4 day festivities were over. These products work on such another level. We had the Marys’s transdermal patches on each day and between the isolate and the yummy vegan meals we ate all weekend, our bodies were dancing each night and waking up very rested. Saturday we had the full force of the Honeys at Bloom (Perk #4) and people were coming into the tent all day to cool off and get their endocannabinoid systems balanced.

First Alex would lure them in with their refreshing drinks and then they would come over and check out our table lined with crystals, cannabis, joint rolling supplies, and tons of product samples.

What’s ailing you? We can help!

The tent would close up about 6 each night and we were free to go explore into the wild. We sat and had a full on healing gong experience one night and danced until the sun came up another. The fire toys came out for a bit as well. With the sponsor passes we were able to go into the VIP area as well and grab lunch and late night snacks. (Perk #5)The artists and visionaries who put together Sonic Bloom are amazing. I saw some great music and jammed out to my favorite guys just wailing on their instruments. Total Jam session for GCB. Sonic was a reemergence of my self and what I really wanted became clearer.

Check out the gallery below and head over to Healthy Honeys.co to grab up any of the products form our trip.

Reiki and Frequency Healing Sessions In The Comfort Of Your Home

Reiki and Frequency Healing Sessions In The Comfort Of Your Home

“A healer’s power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses.”
― Eric Micha’el Leventha

I know that inside each of us is the power and ability to help alleviate the weight we carry. 

I have been there, in the darkest times of my own shadow, barely able to recognize myself, letting people who truly loved me slip through the cracks. I also knew my light could help me. I could feel it still there before I decided to choose to live in lower energy frequencies. I remember the exact moment that I was full of source energy and that same energy which created every single conscious and unconscious element around me, was available to me. I stepped back into the light. I am not going to tell you it was hard because it wasn’t.

The hardest part was living in the despair and fear of constantly giving my power away. Thinking someone else was ever in charge of my emotions was constantly keeping me in a creepy limbo state of mind, wrought with terrible things continuing to happen. I had given up long ago as a young child looking outside of myself for comfort from others. I could fall asleep soundly by simply releasing all my cares and reassuring myself, ” It’s going to be OK.” And you know what!? IT ALWAYS WAS.

I am not here to try and fix you but I am here to guide you along the way to helping  feel happier in your skin. I believe our DNA is coded with light to heal and sometimes having someone understanding of these frequencies  in your time of need, is the most healing feeling of all. I am here to help you, as you heal, I heal, and Humanity Heals. It starts with you!

This is why I offer in home personal Reiki and Frequency sessions. Each session includes a 60 minutes of Reiki therapy with sound frequency healing, a sacred space clearing, intuitive tarot guidance, buffalo drumming, special meditation and affirmation, and crystal and plant companions for you to keep.

Utilizing intensive sound healing along with the aid of specific crystals for your intention to clear your home, I clear each space with Sacred herbs, Agua Florida, Sage, and Offerings. Before I arrive at your home we will go over in detail what you know about your home and the current state of affairs. I have assisted in many clearings and blessings and regularly clear my home as well.

Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. From the shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health. I bring my personal ancestry from France and the Muguzawa tribe of Africa.

 

Each session begins with the intention of being an open channel for the highest healing you need at the time. It is best to allot a total time of 90 minutes for the entirety of your session. Send me an email and lets discuss your availability.

If all we have is hope and hope is all we need.

Self Love Sanctuary: Sadhana with Ritual Radiance

Self Love Sanctuary: Sadhana with Ritual Radiance
 I met Loren through Instagram when we both lived 1300 miles away from each other. I had not been draw to yoga in a dedicated form until I met this beauty. She basically had me experience something I had been looking for in regular yoga classes. I just could not separate myself from the electromagnetic charge of the computer to really get into flow of my own.The classes I had been to were not the ideal setting to really go within. I was angry and irritated with myself. I was about to swear off yoga once and for all.

Then Loren and I found ourselves less than 5 miles apart living in the same city less than a year after we met. She told me about Kundalini Yoga and how she was struggling with finding something that spoke to her soul as well. The chants, the mantras, the extended periods of weird arm movements; I literally fell in love again with yoga since the first time I took a class in Knoxville Tennessee.

Loren developed a specific Sadhana, a daily practice, for me after an in depth questionnaire about what I was dealing with in my waking reality. Loren opened my heart and eyes to the most powerful prosperity I have ever known, and I tested it out for real! I quit doing all my practices for two whole weeks and literally everything changed again. These practices WORK and Loren is truly a divine shining pillar of light. How important is a Daily practice? Extremely. It doesn’t have to be Kundalini, but You deserve to enrich your life with ancient sound codes and charge your energy field with practices that embody Self Love. Read my interview below with the ethereal Loren of Ritual Radiance.

TSH: What would you suggest to women who are to think they are busy to devote time to a daily practice?
LC:I suggest rethinking your idea of a daily practice! Shifting your perspective on what a daily practice is will open up the possibility for practice in every and any moment. Many of us get caught up in the idea that our daily practice has to be a long, complex, esoteric situation but it really doesn’t! I find it hard to believe anyone who tells me that they can’t create five minutes of time in the day to practice. Once you create those five minutes for yourself, just spend it breathing long and deep. Or sit peacefully and chant a single mantra. It can be that easy, as long as you let it be. Of course, you can also do more complex practices, but start small and build from there! We just have to get out of our own way every once and a while and see how simple it can be.
TSH: What would be your desert island tool kit if you only had to meditate all day?
LC: An island dedicated solely to just making your practice more enriched.
I love the idea of this island! I would bring…
+a ton of living spring water
+a meditation cushion — my hips would hate me otherwise!
+mantra music (particularly tunes by White Sun, Nirinjan Kaur, Nirinjan Kaur Khalsa, Snatam Kaur, Mirabai Ceiba, Singh Kaur, and Alexia Chellun — look these gorgeous artists up if you aren’t familiar with them!)
+Living Tea — for tea ceremony
+sunscreen and my Frankincense Beauty Balm to cover all skincare needs!
TSH: What is the greatest reward you have gotten from your sadhana?
I have come home to myself. My true self, my infinite self. Most of my life was spent pretending to be someone else out of fear and longing to belong. Through my Sadhana, I was shown the path back to who I truly am. Embodying myself in this way has made me more radiant, more successful, and more happy!
TSH: I started my daily practice with help and guidance from you, what would you say to someone who wants to start but doesn’t know where to begin?
LC: Start right now. In this moment: close your eyes, and breathe long and deep for three minutes. Open your eyes, go about your day. Voila, you’ve completed your daily practice in under five minutes! I say this because we often make grand, sweeping statements about our desire or intention to create a daily practice. But then, in our day to day life, we don’t actually act on that desire. If you are feeling inspired to start a daily practice, start it right now while you have the energy and motivation! It also helps to keep it simple and short in the beginning. My daily practice is a twenty minute recitation of a Gurmukhi poem, but I would almost never give a client that practice
to start with. I think that pranayam (breathwork) exercises are great because they’re accessible, the effects are experienced immediately, and you can do them while laying in bed, in the bathroom, driving in the car, flying on an airplane, cooking, showering, etc. Don’t place blocks in your path!
If you’re looking for an accessible, convenient tool for creating a new daily practice, I just
launched The Sacred Self Care Journal. It’s a by-donation resource that has over 30 Kundalini Yoga practices (a new one for each day of the lunar cycle!), daily writing exercises, monthly and weekly check-ins, and a special page for both the New Moon and Full Moon! You can find it on
my website. I’ve use it daily and it’s blowing my mind how powerful
these small practices can be!
What do you want to give back or put out into the universe by teaching Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga, in my opinion, is the most effective technology we have today to face the
challenges of our world — which are many. We are living in a very interesting time, but I feel we
incarnated here with a specific purpose. Part of my own purpose, because it is layered and complex, is to stand under these teachings and share them so that others may be elevated.
Yogi Bhajan said that, as a Teacher of Kundalini Yoga, your students should be at least ten
times greater than you. In my sharing this lineage, I aim to co-create a community of people who are fully expressed, fully embodied, grounded, loving beings. I see so many communities today that are created around the idea of “My life is so wonderful, so you should follow me and like me and invest in me to become like me.”
I’m excited that I’m creating a community that honors each person as their own uniquely beautiful medicine and encourages them to invest in and be themselves.
We are all so gorgeous in our diversity! I love giving people the tools to be guided back to their own truth and their own medicine, allowing them to activate a radiance from within that is unlike any other.
TSH: Can you share a meditation that anyone can say to help increase their self love whenever the feel like it may be lower than usual?
LC: Simply chant the mantra I am bountiful, blissful, beautiful. Bountiful, blissful, beautiful am I. Allow the mantra to cut through and replace the destructive thought/behavior pattern. What’s your advice when starting a sadhana? Should women take it slow or dive in head first for an hour plus?
Everyone is different in what they can handle right off the bat. I would suggest starting small but with determination and grit. If you can’t do three minutes of daily practice, you’re not going to magically find the time, space, and grace to do an hour of daily practice out of nowhere. You have to build that energy! So start small and build up. When I first began practicing, I did a three minute meditation for about three months before increasing my time or changing my practice.
And yet, I only want to encourage anyone who is excited about longer practices! Just remember not to fall into guilt consciousness if you aren’t able to do the full practice daily. Life is life! And life is the real practice.
TSH: Have you developed more Self Love since you started your sadhana?
LC: In some ways, it feels like I developed ALL of my self-love since I started my Sadhana. Before I began practicing Kundalini Yoga, I had horrible acne, anxiety, confusion about my path in life… I didn’t believe in myself, love myself, or think I was worth anyone’s time. It all sounds so dramatic written out, but I think many of us are living life in the same way, not even realizing how much more rich, expansive, light, and joyful our lives can be.

Loren Teaches Classes Every Thursday at Urban Sanctuary Denver and you can follow along with Loren on her Instagram Ritual Radiance. You can also find Loren leading The Green Lodge Gatherings in Boulder May 22 and June 26! Request Tickets Here. Now Go give your Self Some LOVE!!!!


I came to back to understanding that part of having Self Love is really accepting that NOT EVERYTHING IS FOR YOU. No matter what anyone tells you, You have to make this decision to love yourself with the intention to do it in YOUR own truth. No ONE can tell you that their truth is your truth! Maybe Yoga, Hiking, Meditation, Cannabis, whatever really did heal them BUT whenever you do not release the EMOTIONAL THOUGHT PATTERN that created dis-ease in the physical body in the first place, you can never truly heal.   I love Kundalni because I can feel the words radiate through my being.

Cannabis Is Bringing Together A New Sisterhood In Boulder

Cannabis Is Bringing Together A New Sisterhood In Boulder

At least 158 Million people worldwide use Cannabis for medicinal, recreational, and spiritual purposes. This number increases daily as more people understand the power of this plant, and women in Colorado are coming together to prove they also can benefit from the community it brings.

Entrepreneur and hierophant that Cannabis can help woman dissolve “the competition complex,” Maggie Murphy of Colorado, also known as The Stoned Housewife, is blazing this path with The Green Lodge Goddess Gathering.

Once each month, with dates currently scheduled through June 2017 at the Vali Soul Sanctuary in Boulder, healers from all over the world are invited to enrich the lives of the women at the Green Lodge Goddess Gatherings. The theme, though always centered around indigenous Earth Medicine, changes each month, so ladies are encouraged to attend as many as possible to build upon previous teachings. While the theme may change, Maggie insists that one thing is for certain,

“Participants can expect that Loren, the house Kundalini instructor, will push them and enhance their moon flow by giving them specific sound currents and mantras to open up the neural pathways and promote healing.”

Regular attendee, Danielle Webster shared her thoughts about the most recent gathering,

“I have to say, smoking indoors in a public space is really cool. It’s even cooler to do this in a space with a bunch of other lady stoners who are coming together to use cannabis in a thoughtful and lackadaisical way. It’s not just about getting stoned, it’s about connecting through the use of cannabis to relax everyone and make them more comfortable in the environment. “

Through the Stoned Housewife brand, Maggie, is continuing to expand this community with partnerships for future lodges in California, Arizona, and Nevada.

“I love to create a space where women can come together and try new aspects of healing on multiple levels, and where each individual feels like her being there contributes to everyone,” Maggie explained. As one of the most affordable Cannabis friendly workshops in the area, they also aim to give back as much as possible to the women. “There is a gift exchange at the end of each event, and every woman walks away with a newly blessed treasure. Sometimes a simple gift of the intention to make someone else happy is the most healing someone can get that day.”

When asked what her vision for the future of the Green Lodge is, Maggie explains,

“I want to continue this growing tribe of women and have lodges all around the world, Cannabis is a small but integral part of women coming together in a unifying setting. There is no need for the ego because we all come with the intention to be a community.”

Recapping the last Green Lodge, Danielle said, “We were all together chanting, moving, and holding our bodies. Loren (the lodge Kundalini Yoga instructor) pushed us as we did forms of yoga ‘exercises’ we’ve never done before, and as a team we all learned how hard it is to sit still. Certain chants made us laugh together, others made us cry, but overall we all felt 100% more connected than when we had began the gathering. ”

Future dates for the lodge include April 24th, May 22nd, June 26th.

Participants also have the opportunity to win prizes from Sponsors Stashlogix and LoveandMarij. These events are INVITATION ONLY. Click here to request yours today.

Treat Yourself to a Cannabis Spa Experience At Home

Treat Yourself to a Cannabis Spa Experience At Home

This article originally appeared on MassRoots

More women are using cannabis to enhance their beauty routine with night creams and bath bombs loaded with THC or CBD. Since you can’t legally toke up in a spa yet, I wanted to do a little in home experiment combining cannabis and crystals to make my own Stoned Spa experience.

Not many people dispute the medicinal properties of cannabis, but Crystal Healing still has some convincing to do on a national level. Crystals have a high rate of vibration so they are utilized widely in modern technology. There are liquid crystal diodes in calculators and the very phone you may be reading this on. They also are used in credit cards, fiber-optic phone lines, and laser technology. Crystals literally power our lives. If we could see the energy fields that make up each and everything, including us, we would all be carrying around crystals to protect and amplify our energy fields. Crystals have their own energy fields and the Crystal Kingdom began on earth before the plant kingdom, so they have a deeper healing property than we have yet to fully discover. Plus who doesn’t love feeling a little witchy?

Using cannabis topicals on your skin can deliver many anti aging benefits by combating wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Cannabinoids, like CBD, are also known to have amazing anti inflammatory properties. Now you can bring your own spa into your bathroom by making a simple trip to the dispensary and your local metaphysical store. To get the full spa experience you will of course need candles and some crystals. To take it to the next level, I like to use a Malachite Bath Soak which charges the water with the healing properties of the crystals. Malachite is an extremely powerful metaphysical stone and is used for deep energy clearing. So if you have had, “one of those days” you are going to make this your new night-time ritual.

Stoned Spa Experience supplies

  1. DIY Face Mask
  2. CBD Bath Bomb
  3. CBD Salve
  4. Joint or Bowl of your favorite strain

For the Face Mask:

  • 2 tsp. Activated Charcoal
  • 2 tsp. Tamanu Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Aloe Vera Gel from Plant or Organic from Store
  • 1 Tablespoon of finely ground cannabis flowers

For the Bath:

  • Dry Body Brush
  • Malachite Bath Soak
  • Heavenly Hash Bath By Mary Jane’s Medicinals
  • Bath Bomb of your choice (I love the CBD Lavender ones from Dank Essence)
  • A nicely rolled Joint, Blunt, Bowl

Time to relax

Mix the face mask ingredients into small bowl and stir until desired consistency is reached. Paint onto face avoiding eyes and hairline, letting mask dry while in the bath. Starting the bath water, add in the Malachite and Hash Bath satchel while the water is still running. While waiting for the bath to fill gently take the body brush and start gently dry brushing your skin.

Dry Brushing helps shed dead skin cells and encourages new cell renewal, leaving your skin more radiant as soon as you start brushing.

The Malachite will turn the water a mermaid green color. Step in and slowly start to dunk the bath bomb. I usually let it sit in my hand and float it around creating a circle. Then sit back and relax!

For an added healing element you can use a variety of mantras to dissolve blocks and let go of any unwanted tension. Being in a malachite bath is a PERFECT time to meditate and light up your joint! By now you are prob in a very relaxed state. If you are like me and enjoy mid afternoon baths, I would grab a sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid strain like Strawberry Cough, Durban Poison, Ghost Train Haze or Lambs Bread. Otherwise those night baths are a perfect pairing with an indica strain like Grand Daddy Purple, Violator Kush, G-13 or Bubba Kush. Once you are done with your smoke, gently lower your head into the bath soaking your hair and rubbing the charcoal and cannabis mask off. Keep a warm wash cloth next to you and gently wipe away any remaining pieces of the mask.

To complete your experience, pamper your body with almond oil or a CBD topical salve to give your skin that last little bit of glow. Store your extra mask, if any, in your fridge and use within 3 days.

“The Toner has seriously worked MIRACLES on my acne scars. I can’t believe it. I’ve tried what seems like EVVVERRRYYYYYTHING for them with little or no improvement at all. But over the past -2 weeks-  Using the Immortelle toner I have had over more results than over the past 4-5 years, using a plethora of other products some of which cost 10x The Immortelle.” – Stephanie


||| PREPARATION |||

Diving deep into the preparation for each product our creative standpoint is to utilize ancient healing methods, herbs, and crystals combining  them to achieve an even higher vibrational healing frequency. Bringing you something that is truly unique and not offered commercially. We all know the immense healing that can come from the proper nourishment and taking care of our body. Many ancients believed the Earth can produce all the healing you need. I’m here to help you with that!

We are conscious creating energetic fields. Utilizing the power of plant medicine as well as crystal healing vibrations.

Many of my creations are charged by the sun and the moon. As that is what our world revolves around. The light from the sun super charges the intention set inside and fills it with light, bringing it to fruition instantly. The healing pull of the moon strengthens every molecule of energy. I am grateful for the gifts of wisdom I have received as well the never ending flow of knowledge I experience. I pass them onto you in the form of many elixirs, tonics, bath soaks, and essences.

EARTH + MAGIC

I have been studying Stone + Crystal Medicine for a long time. Each item in my shop is carefully crafted and charged with various Crystals. Utilizing each Crystals unique properties and pairing them with their herbal counterpart to benefit you as nature intended.

It makes sense to me to utilize the power of the Earths resources if no harm comes from the process. Many of our ancestors who passed down the widsom of crystal healing felt the tremendous power and knowledge held within these sacred parts of the planet. It was those who relied only on faith and intuition who utilized their amazing benefits.

As energetic Beings, our energy fields can be impacted in different ways. Utilizing the frequency and energy given off by different Crystal Beings can benefit the Human Beings who roam the same organism.

Minerals, gems, and crystals have been used for millennia to enhance emotional, physical and spiritual balance.|||
