Love List: 02

My latest love list for you includes current favorites and a Christmas booklist.

5 things I love right now

I've been getting so many downloads lately it has my head spinning. At such times, guided meditations are like heaven. This is my new, favorite guided meditation.

This incredibly nourishing, handmade Rose Salve from Honest Owl Herbal makes my body so happy! Like literally. I feel my body get happier when I put it on. Plus, I love the woman who makes it and trust her with all things herbal.

I have a favorite, secret scent I love from The Sunbathing Petal, but all of her offerings are divine and so beautifully packaged! They're a joy to receive and use.

This Alan Watts guided meditation is the best description of meditation that I've ever heard. Plus, his voice is lovely to listen to.

I can't stop listening to this BBC recording of Yo Yo Ma Bach Cello Suites. The short interview excerpts are fantastic.

Over the last few months, I've found myself going down a reading rabbit-hole exploring the real history of Christianity, Gnostic texts, and the goddess aspects lost from Christianity as it's known today.

I didn't intend this journey, but by chance, consecutively, almost every single book I've been drawn to read recently has been on this topic. I'm fascinated, and I'm changed by what I've learned. Since it's almost Christmas, I thought it'd be a lovely time to share my favorites, which include fantasy fiction as well as historical texts.
