Smudging is a very integral part of the Native American culture. Every dream catcher by AHYOKA is given a smudging before and after the product is made. Smudging is a powerful way to initiate and bless your dream catcher. Rituals have great meaning and can put your mind and thoughts into action. Your dream catcher can become one with your feelings and perform the way you want it to.
Once you have decided where to hang your dream catcher, it is time to perform the ceremony that will enable it to work properly in your home or living space.
For the ceremony herbs like sage, eucalyptus or lavender is lit and its smoke is used to cleanse the house. Use a feather (eagle or dove) to blow the smoke and offer up a prayer for your dream catcher and what you wish for it to bless your home. Become one with the dream catcher and allow yourself to visualize what the dream catcher is there to protect. End your ceremony by thanking your dream catcher and the elements of nature Air, Fire, Water and Earth and feel it ready to bless your home.
You are ready to place your dream catcher in the chosen spot to hang over and protect your home, family, or thoughts.Though essentially a Native American ritual , make the whole process as personal as you can. Initiating a dream catcher is a highly spiritual ceremony in which you become one with the energies around you.

Started off with travels and it promises to take me around the world. According to Chinese Horoscope, this year being the year of the Rooster, my sign which is Rabbit (a little too spot on :P) has the worst year ever. I found that out on the 3rd of Jan. And today on the 27th I can tell you, you make your own destiny.
So far, I’ve taken up new responsibilities in my company, traveled twice on business, met amazing people, found my soulmate who makes my heart sing and more than anything I’ve learnt to find joy for myself. So all my resolutions of I’ll do this and I’ll do that are out the window already. For now lets handle one day at a time. Love, Laugh and Live.
Start every morning thanking the almighty for the day ahead and end the night with gratitude for a good day and hope for a better day tomorrow.
Well… So 2016 is ending… And it’s time for your social media to be flooded with messages and resolutions and brilliant quotes.
And I’ve one of my own.. well a couple.of them actually.. Cos I’ve had a brilliant and hilariously adventurous year.. The year saw me through a divorce, a change of place, forging new friendships, healing my heart and soul, an accident, finding someone I love with my heart and soul, reconnecting with family and finally taking up business. All in all a change like never before and I know it will be for the best.
I’ve to hope that though it might seem like a lot has happened now it’s time for moving forward. In every way. So instead of resolutions I’ve decided that this year I’m going to just heal myself and love myself and try and be kind and the best version of myself.
Happy New Year to all the wonderful people in my life. Cheers to the ones who aren’t in it but made a difference. LOVE ALL.
Have you all been good this year?? Or incredibly naughty?!
I for one have been equally both!! And ladies let’s face it.. being nice is overrated… We have one incredibly beautiful life. Be nice to one another but bring out the naughty every once in a while. And with Christmas and Newyear parties cropping up everywhere and men holding on to their movember beards , Just enjoy yourself and make memories that make being in Santa’s naughty list totally worth it!!
Everyone stumbles from time to time. What you do when you stumble makes all the difference. Negative thoughts bring in negative outcomes. Positive thoughts bring in positive outcomes. Every hurdle, every downfall, every stumble makes you the person you are today. Make a master piece out of every spilt emotion and your life will be surrounded by colours and joy.
Move. Never stop. DANCE. LOVE. BELIEVE. HAVE FAITH. BE KIND. You’ve one life. Make it an epic saga worthy of a gazillion Oscars.
Have you ever had a relationship go so far down the drain that you no longer even feel the emotions??
This is something I see on a daily basis. People not making an effort to stay in friendships, relationships and marriages. Wherein the person doesn’t even care anymore. Sometimes work takes precedence else you are so connected to the cyber world that reality is tough to fathom.
Relationships made over phones and Internet. We seem to shy away from human contact. Even in relationships it’s easier to end it when things get a little tough. We are emotionally detached. And it works for us thanks to the busy schedules.
The positive outcome of this is that I turn it has made us strong. Gone are the days where you mope around for years together for lost relationships. You fall, you brush it off and move on. No more crying and staining your cheeks with mascara.
Take the good, leave the bad and know nothing can substitute human touch and emotions are to be felt. That’s what being human is all about.
