Balance weekly theme- Green Tea

Greetings blogfriends. I have been gone for so long. I hope you have n't forgotten your wacky, witchy, greek friend. It was a bit difficult for me over here. I had various health issues but nothing really major. I was down with tonsillitis, ear infection, asthma, pneumonia, fungus infection from all the antibiotics(twice), the flu... All that, made me realise i was out of balance, and although i am completely healthy for some time now(knock on wood!), i have been away from blogging and other activities i enjoy so much because i was trying to find harmony in my life! I have been visiting your blogs but i did n't leave any comments. I did n't go out much either. It felt like walking down an introvert spiral towards my core to strenthen again. I eat better, exercise almost regurarly, use only natural sweeteners and the most difficult of all... i try not to stress out. I have been working my magical ass off over here all this time, and there were so many things i wanted to share with you. I really missed being here.
I want to ask you to join me on my path trying to find balance. I want to make a weekly theme of exercises, routines, healthy or spiritual habbits and dedicate a week to one of them. See what can stay and what has to go. How do you feel about that?
This week's "obsession" is green tea. It has so many health benefits because of the powerful antioxidant substance it contains(catehins). It fights cancer, arthritis, heart disease, high cholesterol, infections, and it helps with dieting. After you have made your tea you can use the leaves stir them with some water in a cup and concentrate. See what images comes to your mind. Tasseography is a wonderful method of divination, but it is also very energy consuming, so do not forget to ground yourself properly before you begin. You can also dry the leaves and burn them as incenses, or use them in sachets for money, strenth, and health spells since tea has Sun properties. Although, tea is wonderful by itself it blends fantastically with lemon, mint, orange, peach. You can make a pitch with ice and hydrate yourself all day long. But do n't forget it contains a bit of caffeine! Most importantly, since we will do that for our health while you make it do n't forget to state your intention. For example, cleanse my body, cleanse my spirit...
So, who is going to join me with a cup a day for a week? Or who is doing it already?
Brightest blessings to all the blog land!

I love the idea, and I surely do love green tea: Usually one cup for breakfast (after having a cup of coffee earlier) and maybe two at the office. But I'm not good at reading the leaves. A colleague promised to show me how te read coffee grounds, the way his aunts did it in Lybia - looking forward to that one!

Nice to hear from you again. I started the Weight Watchers' diet last week. It's great because you don't have to go hungry. I'm also starting to incorporate more exercise into my life even if it is just walking. Thanks for the info on green tea.

Hi, I was so excited when I say your comment. It has been a while for both of us. I will send you healing loving energy. But I do not know if I can drink the tea. I will give it a try. I do feel your happy energy your comment sent to me. Thank you.
Big hug and lots of love.

I love green tea :) It's been difficult for me to drink any right now because I've been in a hotel room for 2 months now, and there's no tea kettle. >.<
I also recommend looking into Acai berry. Crazy superfruit of awesomeness :)

I drink a few cups of green tea every morning. I like it strong so that I can taste the tartness of the tannins.

Yay glad to see you back. :-)

if you make a simple syrup which is just sugar and water cooked until the sugar dissolves, you can add lemon, mint, lime or an flavoring you like. then it blends into the tea perfectly.

Just stopped back by to see how you are doing. I tried and only cold drink 1/2 cup. the first day. I have been doing meditation the last 6 day at this link .

This is free only on this like. And it has been helping me to heal. I can breath a bit deeper each day. I also know of a person who swore by 1 tablespoon of applesider vinegar a s day. She said she was the only one in her family who was completely healthy and active. I may try this rather than the tea.
Sending you a big hug and lots of love from the other side of the world.
