December Road Opener
Can you believe it? We've hit year 5 of the Healed by Tashi rebrand journey! I'm quietly celebrating this milestone, but it feels like a true full-circle moment. Healed by Tashi began as a sanctuary offering skin and womb services, and now, here we are, evolved into a Wholistic Spa Apothecary, with a buffet of healing modalities. Gratitude is overflowing, and I can't help but be proud and happy to embark on yet another new beginning. Each lesson has become a stepping stone to building something even more magnificent.

A Detroit native, now soaking up the Arizona vibes, and I'm thrilled to welcome you all into this magical space.
As we emerge from the eclipse season, it's the perfect moment to reflect, honor ourselves, and celebrate the victories of the past 12 months. So, let's dive into the alchemy of a December Road Opener. This ritual, born from my personal spiritual journey, is all about cleansing the energy of your home. It's a concoction of fruits, herbs, essential oils, and flowers, each carrying its own unique "healing" power. At the start of every month, I stir up this magical brew, cleanse the front and back of my home, sage the outside, renew my protection sigil, and blow cinnamon for that extra dash of prosperity.
What is a Road Opener? A Road Opener is a magical ritual designed to clear away obstacles, negative energies, and stagnant vibes from your living space. It's like a spiritual broom that sweeps away the dust of the past, creating a clean canvas for new opportunities and positive energies to flow. There's no strict rhyme or reason to it – the magic lies in your personal connection and intention.

Cleansing and Setting Intentions:
Stand at the heart of your home. Sweep the front and back entrances, pouring the Road Opener brew with intention.
As you sweep and pour, set powerful intentions and prayers, releasing any lingering negativity.
Sage the Exterior:
Sage the entire perimeter of your home. Let the fragrant smoke carry away any remaining negative energy.

Sprinkle salt around the doorways for that extra razzle-dazzle.
Closing Thoughts: Remember, there's no one-size-fits-all in kitchen magic. This ritual is about creating with what you have and what feels right for you. You're the magician, the creator of your own magic. So, get creative, trust your instincts, and let the magic flow.
