The Third Eye Chakra is where you find your focus. Its color is indigo so dark purple foods are perfect for supporting this chakra. Lavender is a perfect addition to your palette this week.
Below is a recipe for Lavender Lemonade, while you make it I want you to focus on each step and give it your full attention. Think about where the ingredients are from and thank Mother Earth for providing you with them. Think about the sun shine, water and rich earth that made them grow. Take your time as you clear a special space and get the ingredients together as you prepare to make this lovely drink.
The ingredients are:
6 Cups Water
½ Cup Sugar
¼ cup Agave or Honey
3 Tablespoons Dried Lavender *make sure it is edible lavender!
2 Cups Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 Lemon thinly sliced for garnish
Next, add 2 cups of the water and the sugar to a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir it slowly as the sugar dissolves. Remove the saucepan from heat and slowly stir in the agave or honey and dried lavender. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes while all the flavors become friends. Strain out the lavender and make sure you press all the juice from it.
Next add fresh squeezed lemon juice to a large pitcher along with the remaining 4 cups of water slowly mix in the sweet lavender mixture until it is well blended. Now chill. Not just the lemonade but yourself too! Take a break and relax. Think about all you have learned thus far with your Chakra Cleanse. Your lemonade might need to chill a little longer then you will, but feel free to pour it over ice so you can enjoy it sooner.
I think the only fitting thing left is a big, aaaaaaahhhhhh right after you take your first sip!
