I. AM. ZEN. Esoteric Box

There are endless benefits to meditation, including improved mental and physical health. It has been proven to rewire the brain and can also enhance one’s psychic abilities. You can use meditation to connect with your guides, to heal yourself and to pray for others. Meditation is an amazing tool for visualization and manifestation.

 Tassel Buddha Necklace- Iridescent, glass beads, knotted, sacred adornment with Buddha bead and tassel. Wear to remind you to take a moment for mindfulness throughout your day.
Green Calcite- Heart chakra stone, bringing emotional balance and knowledge of Divine Love. Green Calcite assists during times of transition and major change. Great manifestation stone. Hold the stone while meditating.
 Sahasrara/ Crown Chakra Votive, by Aloha Bay with Glass Holder- The crown chakra is associated with Divine Energy and Self Realization. Light this candle in your sacred space while meditating.
Meditation Smudge Stick: Mountain sage, infused with resins of frankincense, myrrh, and copal. Smudge yourself and your space as part of your meditation ritual.
Cone Burner and Crown Chakra Incense: Goloka Sahasrara Chakra incenses are made with the appropriate fragrance for the individual chakra that has the required effect of clearing and harmonizing the energy center. Aromas of saffron and lotus.
Ceramic Buddha Bust: The Buddha is a symbol of self-liberation. He is known to have become enlightened after meditating under the sacred Bodhi tree for 49 days, without moving.
Meditation (A Start Here Guide), Patrick J. Harbula: This book explores the history of this ancient practice through the lens of different cultural traditions. In addition to outlining the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual impacts of meditating, it includes a selection of guided meditation ideas.

Use your intuition and personal preferences to create a meditation ritual that works for you. I suggest creating a special space, that you specifically use for meditation and your other sacred practices. If you are unable to have a dedicated space, than create an atmosphere that feels peaceful before you begin. 

Personally, I like to use incense or herbal smudges in my space. I use a smudge bundle or palo santo to cleanse my aura and the room. I may also light a candle. I sit on a cushion on a small, soft rug on the ground, but will sometimes sit on a pillow on my bed. 

I suggest that you sit rather than lie down (if possible) during meditation. Your body is trained to sleep when lying down, and it is very easy to fall asleep while meditating if you are lying down. A cushion on the floor or a small cushion on a chair are preferred. If possible, raise the hips above the knees.

Meditation is not just about quieting the mind, it can also be used in a self guided way to heal wounds and traumas, pray for others healing, connecting and conversing with guides and ancestors and more! The included book will have several of these options, but they really are endless.


I looove the Insight Timer app. It has thousands of amazing guided meditations, FOR FREE! You have the option to pay for a membership to access the meditation courses...but it is not required.

I have also been working with the meditations from the I Am Avatar program for over 10 years. You can pay for an entire program, or for individual meditations.

Earthly Elements Box

   Earthly Elements Box

All things are made of the 4 elements

Honor the power of the four elements of fire, water, earth and air with these beautiful and sacred tools. They can be placed on your altar and included in your personal rituals.

**Scroll to bottom for Rose of Jericho Ritual**

Tulip Unfurling Art Card:  Fire (sun), water, air (photosynthesis) and earth come together to create this beautiful photo of a tulip bud as it becomes.

♥ Earth Element- Rose of Jericho Resurrection Plant with Black Dish: These desert plants dry and curl up when water is scarce and ‘resurrect’ when watered. Fill your black dish with water, place plant in dish. In a few short hours, your plant will open and unfurl! **ritual suggestion below**

Earth Element- Lapis Lazuli Stone: These blue stones are powerful third eye and throat chakra energizers. A truth stone, that activates the higher mind and stimulates psychic abilities.

Fire Element- New Beginnings Candle: Remove roadblocks, overcome obstacles and create new beginnings with intention. Natural soy wax and essential oils of Sweetgrass, Violet, Basil, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Citrus, and Vetivert. Topped with Amethyst and Aventurine stones and botanicals of Basil, Lemongrass, and By Twin Moon Magick

Water Element- Copper Offering Bowl: Fill with water and place on your altar or during your ritual practice. The flower of life is a symbol of sacred geometry and is said to contain the power of creation.

Air Element- Resin Burner and Copal Resin: Copal unites the energizing force of the sun with the grounding properties of earth. It draws out and transmutes negative energy of all kinds on all levels and aids in physical self-healing, emotional healing of depression, and environmental clearing. The brass burner will allow you to burn pure resins without a coal! Assemble by sliding the resin holder onto the rod and tighten with the wood screw. Insert the rod into the tealight tray and tighten underneath with nut


Waiting for a waxing moon is beneficial for this work, but your intention also goes a long way if you don’t want to wait.

You can begin by speaking your desires into the plant, add stones, coins or other herbs to your dish (if you desire too) before placing in the dish of water.

Place it on your altar or another special and sacred place. The plant will open up over the next few hours and may take up to 48 hours to fully unfurl.

Each day, pour off the water of the plant and add new water. Keep the water that you pour off in a jar or bowl as this is special, activated water, a powerful prosperity blessing water that you can sprinkle around your home or business or apply to yourself or your loved ones for more prosperity. Sprinkle on your Doorstep to invite all blessings. Sprinkle on your doors and windowsills to enhance protection.Add it on Floor Wash or Sprinkle on your premises to bless your finances and make more money.  Use it as “Holy Water” to repel malevolent entities and reverse bad luck

You may rinse your plant every couple of days, and keep it watered… but after about a week or so allow it to go back to its dormant state. Keep it in a special place and use it when needed.

The Tarot is a system of divination that has been around for hundreds of years. It is a wonderful tool and can provide guidance from your higher-self and guides. Reading the cards are a great way to tap directly into your intuition.

                   WORKING WITH THE TAROT

v  It is important to charge your deck with your energy, this creates a resonance, an alignment to your personal energy signature. There are several ways to do this.

·          First and foremost, cleanse your deck. This can be done by passing it through/over sage or Palo Santo smoke, it can also by setting it in the sunlight or moonlight, and can also be done by setting an intention.
·          Look at each card one by one, in order, while reading the short descriptions.
·          Set the deck on a selenite plate (which will also cleanse the deck) or set one or more of your favorite crystals on top of the deck while it’s not in use.
·          Sleep with it under your pillow, it is a bit bulky and doesn’t need to be directly under your head, just near.

v  The great thing about the tarot, is that it is personal to you. The meanings in the booklet are the traditional meanings, but your intuition is boss! As you use the cards, pay close attention to your first instinct, thoughts and reactions. The same card can mean one thing in a reading and have a different meaning in another reading depending on how it related to the other cards in the spread.

v  REVERSED CARDS: There are many schools of thought when it comes to reading reversed cards. The deck already has an equal amount of positive negative and neutral cards, so some believe it is unnecessary to apply reversed meanings. One way to read reversals is to apply them to your inner life…for example, the Devil card is often interpreted as being in bondage to some sort of addiction/habit, but reversed it could mean habitual thoughts.

Reversals can also simply be read as blocked energy in regard to what the traditional or intuited interpretation is. For example, the World card often depicts success, when reversed it could mean that success is coming but is slowed or blocked from manifesting at this time.
I personally do not read reversed meaning, unless guided too. I feel like my intuition helps me understand if I should return it to the upright position or consider it a reflection of the inner world, or blocked energy. I will use a pendulum for further clarification if needed.

I would suggest turning the cards upright while reading initially and as you begin to feel more connected with your cards you can determine how you’d like to handle reversals.  There is no absolute rule with this, and should feel comfortable for you.
Do you really, really want to learn the tarot? I recommend a book called Tarot 101, it is a course with writing exercises and homework, and it is how I learned and memorized the meanings of the cards, while also learning how to listen to signals from my intuition.

v  JOURNALING: Keeping a tarot journal is a fun way to record meaningful readings, and your favorite spreads. It is interesting to go back and re-read previous readings and see how meanings become clearer with time. Also, as you develop your own expanded interpretations for certain cards, a journal is a great place to keep this important info.
v SPREADS: There are endless spreads on the internet, one of my favorite sites is 'The Emerald Lotus'. You can also search 'tarot spread' on google images and Pinterest. ALSO...create your own spreads!

Intuition Box

We are the Divine manifest in form, resulting in a natural, deep connection to the Universe. The Divine/Source/Creation is always ready to guide us to our highest potential, but our society has trained us to discount this innate power. This box includes several tools to assist with the awakening of your intuition.

**Scroll to the bottom for suggestions for creating a ritual to deepen your connection 
with your intuition.**

  • Queen Eye Art Card, by Noel del Mar
  • Awaken Intuition Ritual Bath, by Cattail Apothecary: This bath was custom blended specifically for this box! Ritual baths are an ancient tradition where one can purify and anoint oneself using intention and the healing/ spiritual properties of the ingredients in the bath. Visit

  • Inner Work, Intuition Tea, by WEvolve Box: Ingredients: Organic spearmint leaf, organic lemongrass, organic elder berry, organic red rose buds and petals, organic linden flower and leaf, organic chamomile flower, organic raspberry leaf, mugwort and organic orange peel. Please do not drink this tea while or immediately before driving. This is a wonderful tea to drink before bed, or before reading the tarot, meditation, or otherwise connecting with your intuition.

  • Agnya- Third Eye Essential Oil Roller, by the Hippie Homesteader: Gem infused essential oil roller. Use throughout the day to connect with the third eye. Can also be used to anoint the third eye during meditation. For more, visit
  • Opalite Pendulum: Use to connect with your intuition and guides, excellent for help to make decisions and for tarot card interpretation.
  • Labradorite Stone and Quartz Point: Labradorite protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Keep near to strengthen intuition and promote psychic abilities. Quartz helps to expand consciousness, stimulates the chakras, assists in communication with guides, past-life recall, and is an amplifier for other crystals and stones.

  • Intuitive Being, by Jill Willard: Excellent book on how to create and/or deepen your connection and trust with your innate knowing.

RITUAL: Use the items in your box to create your own personal rituals, incorporating your traditions and sacred objects such as sage smudging, calling in the directions etc. The following is a suggestion only...

Set aside some time for yourself, where you will not be interrupted. Create some sacred space for meditation, maybe a pillow on the floor, surrounded by candles and your favorite stones or other sacred objects. Clear the space with intention and sage, Palo Santo or other incense if you have. You have now set your space for meditation

You can make your tea to drink during your ritual bath or after your bath and before your mediation. **This tea has ingredients that can feel a little altering. Steep for a 3 minutes and remove the tea strainer from the cup, you can leave it longer if you'd like it stronger.

Run yourself a bath, pouring in the ritual bath blend. Soak in the bath, offering gratitude to the waters, and to the herbs, asking them to help open you to your intuition. Soak for as long as you fill guided to. *(If you don't have a bathtub, you can pour the blend into a washcloth and rub all over your body.)

Return to your sacred space and drink your tea, if you have not already, then bring yourself into a meditative state. You can hold your stones in each hand if you like. You can ask your higher-self,  guides or ancestors to bring you messages. Pay attention to the thoughts and pictures, even colors or sounds that you notice during your meditation.

Journaling can be a good practice when working with your intuition, write down everything you experience during your meditation, as its significance may not become clear till later on.

Use your pendulum to connect with your intuition. The more you use it the more responsive it will be. A pendulum can be cleansed and charged along with your crystals with sage, or other smoke medicine (incense or Palo Santo) or with your intention to clear them. You can ask your intuition or guides yes or no answers using your pendulum.  I found a great video that shows how to get started using a pendulum and how to differentiate between yes and no answers.

Scared self-Love Box

 This box is a celebration of your divine self! You are a beautiful aspect of the infinite, a powerful and unique being that deserves love and appreciation. We live in a fast-paced world where we don’t often honor ourselves for who we are and what we have to offer. When you take the time to nurture your being and spirit everyone benefits, not only those closest to you, but the entire world is uplifted by this act of love.

Wishing you quiet moments and meaningful rituals of love.

♥ Vintage Botanicals Art Card: a bouquet of lovely flowers for you!
 Heart Balm by Tellicherry Trading Co: Custom made for this self-love box, it’s a treat for the skin you’re in, but specially made to nurture your heart space. Gently massage into the skin around your heart and heart chakra while imagining a luminous pink light emanating from your heart and filling your entire energy body/aura with love.

♥ Handmade Indian Paper/Sari Journal: Love letters to self. This is a special place to write wonderful thoughts and intentions from you to you. You may also like to write your oracle readings down to reference again in the future. 

♥ Green Tara Figurine (also known as Kuan Yin in East Asia): In Tibetan Buddhism Tara is a Bodhisattva, a Sanskrit term for a being who seeks or has attained enlightenment and motivated by great compassion, is devoted to the awakening of all sentient beings. The Green Tara is a goddess of universal compassion and a protector from fear.
**Please note, due to several Tara's breaking in the original shipment from Nepal, we have substituted several Kuan Yin statues of equal value.

Kuan Yin Oracle Deck: Kuan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion and is a manifestation of the Divine Mother. This beautiful oracle deck will support you as you nurture yourself and help to guide you in your spiritual journey.

Self-Love Ritual

Begin by setting your sacred space, this can mean arranging your altar or creating a cozy area with your special crystals, photos or objects that hold meaning for you. Boil water for your tea, and while you are waiting, hold the tea bag in your hands and think of any intention or gratitude that you would like to put into your tea. You may also put intentions of self-love into your candle, simply by holding it and asking that it’s burning flame be a reminder of the warmth and love that the Universe has for you. When you have your tea, and have lit your candle, gently massage your heart-balm on your heart and heart chakra, filling yourself with loving thoughts, asking your heart to open and receive as well as share love. Begin writing your thoughts or intentions of self-love in your journal. Write what you would like to bring into your life. Write down the things you want to forgive yourself and others for. When you are ready, pull out your Kuan Yin oracle cards, shuffle the deck and give yourself a reading, recording the cards and your thoughts in your journal.

The journal is handmade and may have a funny odor from the paper-making process, spread the pages open and leave out for a few days, the smell will fade.
It is common for tarot and oracle decks to be kept in silk, satin or velvet pouches. The satin bag in your box is meant for this purpose.

A Meditation Ritual Box

Meditation takes many forms, from walking or dancing, to sitting quietly or even chanting. Some like to bring stillness and peace to their experience, while others prefer a guided audio. Meditation brings us deeper into ourselves, a few moments away from the world “out there” to explore the infinite world within. May these tools inspire your personal practice.

Please scroll to the bottom for a meditation ritual and a video on how to play your singing bowl.

- Lotus Art Card: the lotus has long been a symbol of ever unfolding enlightenment in eastern traditions.

-Mala Beads and Silk Brocade Pouch: a mala is a string of prayer beads used to count mantras or repeat affirmations in sets of 108 repetitions. The practice of chanting a mantra is used as a form of meditation, the mantra is repeated out loud or within the mind.
*scroll down for suggestions on cleansing your mala beads*

- Meditation Candle by House of Good Juju: infused with Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Smoky Quartz, and Kyanite, as well as a selection of essential oils. Visit

- Go Deep Meditation Oil by La Que Sabe: this oil is specially formulated to help you connect with higher states of consciousness, anoint your third eye or wherever you prefer, prior to meditation. Made with essential oils of frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, clary sage and Reiki energy.

-Celestite Crystal Cluster: also known as Celestine, is a powerful healing crystal. Celestite will connect one with the Angelic realms, allowing for the free-flow of these higher frequencies into the Crown and Third-Eye Chakras, and also the Throat Chakra for expression.

-Dhoop Incense Sticks: a style of incense without the bamboo stick. Use the hole in the box to hold the incense while burning.

-Brass Singing Bowl with Pillow& Striker: the pure sounds produced when the rim is rubbed by the mallet is said to put the brain into a meditative state. The vibrations of the singing bowls have the same wavelength found in the brainwaves that produce feelings of relaxation. Getting a bowl to sing may be challenging at first, but keep trying! 
*Scroll down for singing bowl video tutorial.*

Cleansing Crystals and Stones
I feel like it is very important to energetically cleanse your crystals, malas and stones, as they are constantly absorbing and releasing energy. They can be cleansed several ways, by intention, by placing in the window under a new or full moon, by smudging with sage or Palo Santo smoke or other purifying resin incense, such as frankincense or myrrh. You can also place then on a bowl with sea salt, or a bowl of sea-salt water. DO NOT place softer crystals, such as selenite or clusters of any kind into salt water as this could damage your crystals.

Meditation Ritual
Prepare your sacred space or altar by bringing together items of significance, such as a photo or other meaningful symbols. I like to represent the elements with a vessel of water, a lit candle for fire, an incense or sage bundle for air and a crystal or plant for earth.

Sit in a comfortable position and consider your intention and create a mantra or affirmation for this ritual such as-

  • I deserve whatever good comes my way today.
  • I radiate confidence, certainty and optimism.
  • I love myself more every day.
  • Today, and every day, I choose to give to the world.

Anoint your third eye and crown chakras, or if you prefer, anoint all of the chakras or any other part of your body with the Go Deep meditation oil. you can also use this oil to anoint your candles and other sacred objects.

Holding your mala beads on your hand, closing your eyes or keeping them open with a soft gaze, begin to say your mantra, moving your fingers to a new bead with each repetition.

Once you have completed a round of affirmations, give thanks to your being for your life and experience.
