You are so much More
 
We live in a chaotic and fast paced world, where we get caught up in our titles. Me? I am known as “Mom” , “Wife”, “Sister”, “Friend”, “Teacher” and so much more.

You Are More Than Just A Title… We live in a chaotic and fast paced world, where we get caught up in our titles. Me? I am known as “Mom” , “Wife”,  “Sister”, “Friend”, “Teacher” and so much more.

Between taking care of two little boys at home, cleaning the house, planning dinners and lunches, making time for my friends and my husband, planning within my businesses, I often forget that before ALL of that… I am Sarah, first. 

I recently got ahold of a new book called “Journey To The Heart” by Melody Beattie. It’s a daily meditations book, and while searching for something to feed my soul and lift my spirits, I came across this page that IMMEDIATELY got my attention. The bottom of the page read,

“Rest when you’re tired. Take a break when life stales. Take time to recharge your battery. Energy isn’t something you have – it’s something you are.”

This really struck a chord with me because I am one of those people that will spread myself way too thin, saying “yes” to everything and I quickly found myself exhausted, anxious and forlorn. In my yoga teacher training we covered this topic quite a lot! We called it “healthy no”. This would apply anytime your pulled into the direction of something that is not healthy to your authentic self. I get it, you want to be there for everyone, you don’t want to miss a single event. But for the sake of sanity, learn to give a “healthy no”. If you’ve been working overtime, carpooling all the neighborhood kids to school and soccer practice then going to late dinner meetings and your friends want to go out on Friday night but you’re more interested in having a night to calibrate, then STAY IN! Explain to your friends the “healthy no” and they will understand.

You see, when we give so much of ourselves away to the point that we are drained, we are preventing ourselves from fulfilling our purpose, living to our highest potential and best selves and in turn, defeating the purpose of our creation.  

We are created to be extraordinary.  

So REST.

RECHARGE.

Put aside your titles and duties for 5 minutes to an hour and do something to refuel your soul; whether that be listening to your favorite song, getting a massage, walking in nature, reading and so on. 

You’ve earned it!

Scorpio Full Moon
 
Hello Mama Moon… we send our love and Gratitude!

Hello Mama Moon… we send our love and Gratitude!

Our next full moon is on May 18th!

This moon we are soaking up the watery energy of Scorpio, and allowing that energy to permeate our spirit. This is a beautiful time to allow yourself to read between the lines of what is going on in your life, and to bring more awareness to what that is or could mean for you.

“Awareness allows us to get outside of our mind and observe it in action.” —Dan Brule

This Full Moon in Scorpio is also a time of unwrapping and unveiling, any hidden or repressed emotions and feelings. Dig deep within yourself to unbury what may lie within, and allow your intuition to guide you with what to do next, in what you may find. Remember that water moons, like Scorpio, are always wonderful opportunities to dive deeper into your intuition/psychic abilities, to wade through your emotions, and to uncover next steps in your ongoing transformations.

With the full moon, comes full moon fun right?

Full Moon in Scorpio must haves for us:

Here is an essential oil blend you can add to your diffuser or make a roller bottle/spray to enjoy the energy this moon offers you! One of our favorite practices is finding an affirmation that aligns with our energetic intentions and using that as a mantra when we apply our oils, or add them to the diffuser.

Scorpio Full Moon.png

It is extremely important to communicate your feelings clearly with others during this period, and may also be a time for you to examine if you are doing this regularly. We feel that one of the most important elements in any full moon ritual or practice, is that of Gratitude. For this we created Full Moon Blessings Journal Pages, and hope that you find that it serves you in discovering more about yourself, and what you are grateful for! Add them to a 3 ring binder, or your Grimoire so that you can look back to each moon cycle, and witness your blessings and your growth!

Manifest with Essential Oils
 
Oils & Crystals-5.png

Let’s talk Manifesting!

I feel like this year has really been filled with positive vibes, abundance, and even more opportunities to manifest our dreams. Why? Because I choose to believe it!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite essential oils to manifest your dreams into reality.

Before we dive into that, pull out your diffuser and slip this beautiful blend inside!

Oils & Crystals-4.png

I hope you love this diffuser blend, and if you hadn’t guessed it yet… these oils are definitely on my manifestation list!

WILD ORANGE

Helps to let go of the scarcity mindset, inspires solutions to issues, and promotes the true meaning of abundance. With this oil, we are reminded that there is always more than enough to go around.

BERGAMOT

Helps to let go of feelings of unworthiness. This is so important in general for our health and well being, but even more so when we are manifesting something into our life. We need to know we are worthy of receiving it.

CINNAMON BARK

Helps to let go of the fear of rejections, release shame, and promotes body acceptance. Cinnamon is also vibrationally in alignment with manifesting more $$$.

LITSEA

Helps to move your manifestation into action, inspiring courage from within. The Universe loves inspired action, and this oil can really move you into that energetic space!

FRANKINCENSE

Helps to become spiritually open, shields the body from negativity, and encourages connectivity. I also love the high vibes that Frankincense provides.

LAVENDER

Helps to speak your truth and amplify your authentic voice. This is so critical when you are sharing what you want to manifest with the Universe.

When it comes to bringing more abundance into your life, affirmations, meditations, hypnosis, and focused manifestation can only be enhanced with the use of essential oils. I encourage you to smell all of these oils, and create a blend using the oils that smell most pleasant to you. Use at least 3 drops each of 3 of the oils. The number 3 in itself is a magical number and powerful for manifestation.

If you are looking to manifest more money in your life, you might want to Check out Money Spell inside The Sacred Circle! I’m all about the woo, whimsy, and love a little bit of magic in my life! In this spell, I crafted a beautiful blend of herbs and oils to attract even more of the green stuff into my life, and let me tell you… it WORKS!

Cheers to whatever you are manifesting into your life!

Become your Own Muse
 
Becoming Your Own Muse – Did You Forget Your Magic? Know how inspiring you are. Be aware of how far you come and know that there is no telling how far you are capable of going. Because you’re a damn motivator! You’re a muse! You’re an inspiration! Not just to the world around you – but to yourself.

Becoming Your Own Muse – Did You Forget Your Magic? Know how inspiring you are. Be aware of how far you come and know that there is no telling how far you are capable of going. Because you’re a damn motivator! You’re a muse! You’re an inspiration! Not just to the world around you – but to yourself.

We live in a world where we always seem to be idolizing something or someone. Whether it’s shooting look like one of Jenner sisters, or modeling our success after that Instagram coach who is ALWAYS selling out her courses, has a waitlist longer than your arm and a follower count that makes yours seem like pocket change – why don’t we ever look to ourselves? Why don’t we turn to the mirror to find motivation and to gawk at some badass inspiration? I mean really! How many years young are you? What have you done? What have you accomplished, overcame, and pushed through? I guarantee you that there is a plethora of magic inside of you that you are searching for in so many of the wrong places, Babe. 

I don’t blame you. It’s literally the normal thing to do. We are told as children to find the best role model you can. This was always tough for me as child. I never could really come up with an answer, but at the same time, I never thought about looking to myself either. But I am writing this to you now because I have really inspired myself lately. Cara Alwill Leyba talks in her book “Like She Owns The Place” about being your own muse and she REALLY hit home on that one. A lot of the things you should be proud of are often called “failures” in your mind, I bet. 

Ya know, in 2017 I started an online boutique. I sold mugs, hats, shirts and sweaters all with motivating designs I made myself. I put in SO many hours building the website, designing products, taking photos. It never blew up like I envisioned it would, but ya know what? I never once considered it a failure. I never thought much of it really besides. “Oh well, I tried!” But NOW…Hell, now it’s a big accomplishment in my eyes! It was such an incredible learning experience for me. To this day, one of my favorite sweaters and coffee mugs are my own! I do plan to reopen with a lot of the same designs eventually, as merch for my brand and blog. But Never once did I think of that as a failure. There are tons of other scenarios I could give you, but I will spare you the boredom because I am fairly certain you get the point by now. 

I’m grateful to have never looked down upon the things I have done both in business and my personal life because I view everything as a lesson and firmly believe that it all happened for some divine reasoning. But I know for fact that a lot of you beat yourselves up because things didn’t work the way you expected it to. But what you need to realize is that you are SO blessed to have gone through that when you did! The sooner the better! It’s like weeding through the garden.

I invite you to think about all the things you have overcome in your lifetime. Whether it was a business idea or venture that didn’t go as planned, a break up, a difficult financial time in your life, the list goes on! Write those things down on paper. Read them aloud, and proudly! Take a deep breath in and when you breathe it out, think to yourself… “Damn, I can make it through anything.”

Know how inspiring you are. Be aware of how far you come and know that there is no telling how far you are capable of going. Because you’re a damn motivator! You’re a muse! You’re an inspiration! Not just to the world around you – but to yourself.

Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea
 
Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea would also be the perfect addition to a self care or moon ritual!

Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea would also be the perfect addition to a self care or moon ritual!

Last weekend I came across a recipe for cinnamon milk tea and was immediately IN LOVE! If you know me, you know how much I (and Dalea) love tea of pretty much any sort. But when you throw CINNAMON into the mix?!

Cinnamon has LOADS of health benefits such as:

  1. Cinnamon is high in cinnamaldehyde, which is thought to be responsible for most of cinnamon’s health benefits.

  2. It’s PACKED with antioxidants

  3. OH and all the anti-inflammatory properties? Yes please.

  4. It can improve sensitive to the hormone insulin.

  5. It can lower your blood sugar and has a powerful anti-diabetic effect.

  6. Cinnamon Helps Fight Bacterial and Fungal Infections

As soon as I found this recipe, I immediately made my own little version and it’s been such a soothing, healing and comforting drink to relax and soothe the soul!

PS - You can substitute doTERRA cinnamon bark oil with real cinnamon sticks by just adding them to the pot while the tea bags steep if you need/want to!

Here’s the recipe!

  • Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a small pot

  • Add 3 vanilla chai black tea bags to the pot, place the lid on top and let steep for 7 minutes (if you are using cinnamon sticks, you may add 2 cinnamon sticks in for the duration of the tea steeping)

  • While the tea is steeping, heat up 1 ½ cups of coconut almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer - I just adore this flavor) in the microwave or small saucepan.

  • Once the tea is done steeping, remove the cinnamon sticks (if you used them), or if you have doTERRA Cinnamon Bark oil on hand, start by adding 2-3 drops and of course if needed for your prefered flavor you may add more.

  • Stir in 3-5 tablespoons of maple syrup (adjust according to you preferred sweetness)

  • Add in the warm milk and gently stir and add a dash of cinnamon powder ontop for an extra kick and pretty aesthetic!

This should be enough for two cups of Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea to enjoy with your friends, partner or save the extra in the fridge to have over ice the next morning!

If you try this recipe out, I would love love love for you to tag us (@themoonsisterstribe) on Instagram and see your creations!


Love and Light!

Self Care isn't Selfish
 
Self Care is finally choosing to take better care of yourself, so you can take better care of the rest of your world. You get to give the best version of yourself!

Self Care is finally choosing to take better care of yourself, so you can take better care of the rest of your world. You get to give the best version of yourself!

Self care is something that I truly believe is ESSENTIAL to the human experience. Regardless of race, age, gender, or how busy (or lazy) you may be in your life – I would guarantee that you need more of it. 

By self care, I don’t mean (just) fizzy bath bombs and facials (even though these are definitely part of my favorite self care things to indulge in). Let’s talk about what self care really is. 

Self care to it’s core, is taking care of YOU. It’s stopping all those bad habits of saying “yes” to go to events, or to do favors for friends, when you really don’t have the energy within you to do it. It’s honestly saying you’d rather relax with a good book and have an early sleep, than go to a club – instead of making up an excuse that you’re sick. It’s asking your spouse or S.O. if they can handle dinner tonight or do the laundry because you just simply need a break. 

Self care is choosing YOU. It’s not selfish.

The problem is, we’ve been engrained to put ourselves last. But it should not and does not have to be that way. 

I use the analogy of a tree, almost religiously. Imagine as though you are the roots of your tree (symbolising your life) and the beautiful branches and colorful leaves are all the relationships, both business and personal that you have, all of your projects and anything else that may consume your time. 

If you, the roots of your life, are not well maintained, watered and nourished, then the rest of your tree will die. 

Not to sound so dramatic, but seriously. If you are putting yourself last consistently, then you are not giving the best version of yourself to anything that matters to you. If you make yourself, your mental sanity and physical health and well being the top priority list, then not only are you going to live a much happier life, but you are going to blossom in all other areas. Your light and new found glow and skip to your step will rub off in your work, in your relationships, in your friendships. 

Self care is not selfish. 

So go do something for you. 

Seriously, stop reading this. 

You’re still here. 

Okay, I know I’m being cheesy, but really, go love yourself.

K, thanks, bye.

Raise your Vibe
 
Untitled design-46.png

This is a follow up post that is a wonderful addition to Cleanse your Space! It’s so important to fill up your space with high vibrational energy during and after a cleanse, so we wanted to include a share about ways that you can do this.

If you haven’t yet immersed yourself in the world of crystals, today is going to “rock” your world. I promise I won’t try to drop too many puns, but I really couldn’t help it with this one.

Since you are going to also be using Lemon essential oil today, I recommend starting out with a quartz crystal. This crystal is know to amplify energy and intentions, and is one of the highest vibrating crystals you can work with. Today is all about raising your vibration and cultivating more positivity.

Use your Lemon in a diffuser, in your hands, or straight from the bottle today. Hold your Quartz crystal in your non dominant hand as you answer these questions, so you can infuse those positive vibrations into it. 

  • What makes you happy?

  • What activities would you like to do, that you haven’t, that would make you happy?

  • Can you do any of these today, or cultivate the feelings that would come as a result of doing those activities? 

  • What lights up your heart?

Think about this and inhale your Lemon. Close your eyes and imagine all of these positive feelings as a bright white light covering you from head to toe. The light starts to collect around your heart center as a bright orb, and you see the orb flow down your arm into the crystal. Every time you want to experience these positive feelings, hold this crystal in your hands... the aroma of lemon surrounding you, and you vibrating at the highest frequency, as your highest self.

You can really use any essential oils or crystals that bring a smile to your face, and a pep in your step. Ultimately, if you are filling your mind, body, soul, and space with high vibrational energy, you’re on the right track!

Your affirmation today: “I am a divine being of light and love.”

Taurus New Moon
 
Taurus New Moon Blend-2.png

Dig down deep and get super grounded with the earthy energy of Taurus. This New Moon is all about getting clear, communicating, and rooting deep into your self care routine, and falls on May 4th.

“When we're looking for compassion, we need someone who is deeply rooted, is able to bend and, most of all, embraces us for our strengths and struggles.” ― Brene Brown

The word that keeps popping up for me for this New Moon is “rooted” and I imagine us all deeply rooting ourselves in self care, in meditation, walking barefoot on the earth, and spending time in nature. By grounding and rooting into these earthy vibes, you will allow yourself and others to communicate more clearly with you.

New Moon must haves for us in this cycle:

  • Earthy Pu-erh Tea

  • Lavender Essential Oil

  • Lemon Essential Oil

  • Vetiver Essential Oil

  • Wild & Free: Celestite Magick Elixir

  • New Moon Intentions Journal Worksheets

  • Candles

  • Crystals

  • Zen bath

And here is an essential oil blend you can add to your diffuser or make a roller bottle/spray to enjoy the energy this moon offers you! Enjoy!

Taurus New Moon.png

What makes you feel the most grounded? What can you focus on during this cycle to create more feelings of groundedness and being rooted? Take the time to explore and ask yourself questions, so that you can discover and journal out your feelings.
