Seasons greetings to all!
November has flown by and December is just around the corner. For those of us who have a home in or ties to the USA- this week will be a celebration of food and warm thoughts
Whether you plan to pig out on turkey or sit the holiday out- feel free to join in this week for a meditation and digestive tea
~ ~ Digestive Tea - Thurs, Nov 26th and Fri, Nov 27th ~ ~
Many of us will be busy on Thursday with holiday prep, so feel free to take a quiet moment on either Thursday or Friday this week (or both- treat yourself)!
Find some time to join in for a tea meditation - an easy and beginner-friendly meditative practice to help you focus your mind and draw in your energies
Although we are physically spread out across the world, it is possible to come together when we share a cup and a quiet moment together.
Let’s enjoy a relaxing and peaceful tea time together- you are warmly invited!
Ready? Let’s begin
- Choose your beverage . While tea is the standard, it is perfectly fine to do this meditation with coffee, juice, or any other beverage
NOTE: For this week, I recommend preparing a black tea or herbal tea with digestive properties- see below for more details!
Focus your intent . You can follow any style or type of meditation you choose- focus on your breath and thoughts and be present in this moment
Work some magick! While meditation is a magickal and healing process all on its own, you may choose to add an additional element of magick to your tea time.
(Optional: Nov 26-27) : Tea to Aid Digestion
Stuffed with stuffing? Fight off food coma and enhance your digestive health with a little green magick, kitchen witch wisdom, and your own powerful intent
Certain kinds of teas have digestive qualities that can help you fight off that food coma feeling after a big meal.
This week, as you prepare your beverage, consider including a Tea for Digestion [Peppermint, Ginger, and Dandelion are likely the easiest to find!]
And did you know that black tea itself has digestive enhancing qualities? Not only soothing and full of antioxidants, tea can also help to boost your bodily functions and fight off food coma.
Place your tea ingredients of choice into your mug.
Heat your water, and pour it over the tea in a counter clockwise circle: banishing bad effects and the feeling of heaviness.
Now stir your tea in a clockwise motion: inviting in good feelings and enhanced digestion
You may choose to say the chant:
Delicious and fine,Thanksgiving treats.
Glamorous goodies, of which I did feast.
Refrain from regret, this day’s gluttony-
Help me move on, so mote it be!
Sip your tea and imagine the warmth of your drink washing away the goodies you ate.
Let your body relax and recharge from the excitement as you breath deeply. Let any heaviness or sluginess melt away as your body processes the delicious things you enjoyed.
- Enjoy the Benefits of Meditation. After enjoying a soothing beverage and calming moment, you can continue your day with a clear mind, increased focus, and a boost of positivity (and caffeine!)
After your meditation, welcome back
You are very welcome to share any thoughts or experiences you had during tea time. Share some pics of your tea, your plans for the rest of the week, or just talk about what’s on your mind today!
To all those celebrating Thanksgiving- whether your plans are big or small- and to everyone watching the holiday from other parts of the world, have a wonderful week!
Between Thanksgiving and the Full Beaver Moon, this is a great time to show appreciation and pass around the gratitude for all that we have.
I’m grateful for all of you! Looking forward to tea time and a quiet moment with all of my favorite witches
