Let the Light in

I chose to add around a tspn of the dried leaf to my morning Yerba matè. The flavour seemed to take the bitter edge off the matè a little - very pleasant in combination.
I sat in meditation with Sinicuichi & felt my face tilt up towards the sky & a sensation of ‘opening’. After a few minutes a feeling of relaxed euphoria - (not uncommon with just matè by itself, though this felt more bodily, rather than mental). I invited Sinicuichi to move light into my lower centres & I was able to shift some things that needed inner attention/perspective. I felt a strong but gentle resonance with my solar plexus & an encouragement to act out the will of my heart. I listened & acted accordingly!
After around 10 mins the gentle euphoria faded, but the internal shifts stay with me.
A beautiful first meeting with this new plant teacher, looking forward to further work... thank you for stocking Sinicuichi! 🌞
