Volcanic Ash or Clay benefits the body because it has the ability to produce a charge that is electrical in nature when it comes in contact with liquid — similar to how earthing (touching your bare feet to the earth, in particular wet grass). When the clay touches any type of fluid (normally water), it takes on a different charge and is thought to bind to any present toxins within the fluid.
While in its natural state, clay has negatively charged molecules, most toxins and heavy metals have positively charged molecules. This allows the two to bind together easily and stay united while the toxin removal process takes place 😊
Clay essentially “seeks” toxins in the body to bind with because naturally any substance that has a missing ion (which gives it its “charge”) looks for oppositely charged types of substances that will make it complete. Upon binding, the clay is then able to help remove toxins, chemicals, impurities and “heavy metals” from the gut, skin and mouth. #selflove#selfcare#nature#nurture#clay#portlandjamaica#wellness#healthyskin#cometomyriver#livetravelchannel#locs#naturalbeauty#loveyourbody#yogi#livingakashi
It's #Cancerian Season!
Akashi of #livingakashi is born into the influential #zodiac sign & #nature of The Divine #Mother Oshun✨#Oshun is the essence of #love , sweetness and good cheer, #beauty and flowing joy.
Among the Yorubas of West Africa, She is also known as #Yalode - the mother of wealth due to her business acumen.
She is also known as Laketi, “She who responds”, because of how quickly and effectively she answers prayers.
Possession of her devotees is one of her principal manifestation and in such states, devotees are filled with clarity, confidence, #joy , love, #bliss and laughter. Yet, they are filled at the same times with the terrible aspects of her #power which activates to fight injustice against #humanity and irreverence against the gods.
It has been said that “When She possesses her #followers she dances, flirts and then weeps- because no one can love her enough and the world is not as beautiful as she knows it could possibly be.”
The #peacock and the vulture are sacred to Her. Offerings to Oshun could be in form of songs, chantings, #meditating on her name, devotion to her love, and/or adherence with her compassionate laws.
Her manifestations of love include being the source of all fresh waters, all warmth, all knowledge, all culture, all society, all motherhood, #prosperity , #fertility of the land and the water.
Food offerings could include sweet things such as fresh water, #honey , mead, white wine, oranges, sweets, or pumpkins, as well as essential oils and incense.
#Ibeyi absolutely killed it tonight! Hands down, the most interesting and inspiring thing I've heard in music in the last 10 years. No record label BS, just progressive devotional music from the gut. My prediction; these girls will work with the right producer at one point, and then blow the f**k up! And I can't think of a more deserving duo! #ComeToMyRiver#WashMySoul#Yoruba#Chango#Oshun#Cuba#Cubana
