Chai Spiced Chocolate Yogi Tea Recipe




I have attended yoga classes in Niagara Falls at Shine On Yoga with Diane Manjeet.  This is when I had discovered and fallen in love with yogi tea.  After kundalini yoga classes with Diane at her home studio, she would serve yogi tea to her students.  We would all enjoy connecting with each other after class with smiles and laughter, drinking yogi tea and eating healthy organic snacks together.

One day my yogi friend Marlea from kundalini yoga class dropped off a package for me at my house in my mailbox.  What a delightful surprise gift it was, I took a couple pic's of my yogi tea care package and wanted to share with you all this yogi tea recipe.

New Moon Goddess Bath Ritual to Manifest Your Dreams

The New moon phase promotes new beginnings, new endeavors and new relationships.  This is the opportune time to plant seeds of ideas to be harvested later.  During the new moon phase we can set intentions to make positive changes, it is a good time for new career opportunities and to manifest our dreams.


Manifest your dreams with a Goddess Bath Ritual!

How to Create Sacred Space for a Bath Ritual

  1. Put on some music that provides a relaxing atmosphere and light an incense.                                                                                                                               
  2. Clear all clutter and completely clean your bathroom.                                                                                                                                                                       
  3. Surround your bathroom with beauty by using fresh flowers and items that have special meaning to you.  Choose some items that represent the elements. Earth: crystals that resonate with your intention, Air: feathers, Fire: candles, Water: moon water                                                                                                                                                                       
  4. Make a plate of freshly cut organic fresh fruit and dark chocolate.  Set it within arms reach. Use a special glass or chalice to drink a glass of moon water, or wine.                                                                                                     
  5. Run a bath adding Himalayan salt, white sage leaves, therapeutic grade essential oils and you can also add some of your moon water.                                                                                                         
  6. Light a new white candle.                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  7. Set your intentions and plant your seeds by writing down on a piece of paper the positive changes you want in your life.  Be specific with what you desire to manifest in your life.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
  8. Lay in the bath and bring your awareness inward, close your eyes and visualize your dreams.
 *Some essential oils that blend well with tangerine are cinnamon, frankincense, nutmeg and lavender.

New Moon Tea Ritual


You're Invited to my New Moon Manifesting Tea Party!  Let's enjoy some combat aging tea together while planting seeds of intention to manifest our hearts desires.

Silver needle white tea is made from the tender buds of the delicate tea  bush and harvested only two days a year, therefore known as "The Rolls-Royce" of Tea. Grown in  the Fujian province of South East China in remote mountainsides high above sea level, it is said that since it grows in this pollution free environment drinking this tea will combat aging which is one of it's healthy benefits.

 
Here is a list of what you will need for our MANIFESTING TEA PARTY!

* Jasmine Silver Needle Loose White Tea
* Loose Leaf Tea Infuser
* Kettle
* Teapot & Tea Cup
* Paper
* Pen
* Meditation Music
* Incense
* Lighter or Matches...

* Candle (choose a colour that represents what you would like to manifest in your life, see chart below)

RED: energy, strength, passion, love
BLUE: wisdom, calmness
PURPLE: power, success, enthusiasm
YELLOW: confidence, health
GREEN: rejuvenation, prosperity, fertility, harmony
PINK: love, devotion, faith
WHITE: purity, unity, peace, happiness, spiritual awareness



SET THE MOOD:  Put on some meditation music.  (If you would like a copy of the Rise'N Thrive soundtrack to add to your play list, message me directly through my website www.chersumlove.com and I'll send you a free download of the full length track today).  Light your incense and create a sacred space by a window with a table and comfortable chair to enjoy your tea.

START YOUR KETTLE: There is an art of making jasmine silver needle tea.  Take your time and prepare mindfully.  Use 2 tablespoons of jasmine silver needle and put it in the tea ball infuser, then douse the tea ball in a cup of cold water before you place it in your tea pot.  Heat water to 175 degrees (79 degrees Celsius) and pour 8 ounces over the tea ball in the tea pot then steep for 5 minutes.  This tea is perfect on it's own and does not need anything added. 


LET THINGS GO:  First we must release what no longer serves us.  Write down on a piece of paper a list of things you would like to let go of.  When you are finished the list either tear it into pieces or burn it.  Letting go of things you no longer want in your life creates space for what you desire in your life.

SET YOUR INTENTIONS: Light your candle.  Write on a new piece of paper your hearts desires, your goals, your dreams, what you want in your life.  When you're finished you can fold the paper and place it by the candle, allow your candle to burn until it goes out on it's own.

ENJOY YOUR TEA:  Hold your tea cup with both hands and rest the cup close to your heart gently resting on your chest, close your eyes, take a deep breath in allowing the fragrance of jasmine into your soul.  Exhale softly and slowly as you feel the warmth of the tea cup warm your heart.  Repeat 3 times as you visualize your hearts desires.  Sip your tea slowly and peacefully as you gaze out the window and or watch your candle flame with thoughtfulness.

New Moon Blessings!

Let Your Goddess Glow with Magic Moon Water Flow!

The night before the Full Moon make your own Goddess Moon Water...


#1. Find any type of a glass bottle, container or mason jar. 
    
(These are the types of glass containers I use)

#2. Fill with water.  

                                                              (I use purified water)


                               #3. Bless your water with white sage.


                       (I bless and cleanse my water and crystals with white sage smudging.)

#4. Place your bottle outside in a place that it will be in the light of the moon for the entire night,  or you can place it by a window that receives the moonlight. 

"Beautiful moon, 
bright night light 
who moves the earthly tides,  
charge this water with your light,
 lovely moon goddess of the night."

#5.  Remove bottle from outside or from window before the sunrise.


Moon Water will taste delightful and by consuming will awaken your goddess power and give you more energy.  Water your plants with Moon Water and watch them Thrive!
