Winter Solstice is fast approaching, and with it, a sense of relief. This year has tested us all, pushed us to our extremes, and shone a light on all our darkest corners. Most of us will walk into the New Year feeling changed. Stronger and enriched by challenges overcome, loss, or soul defining experiences. We are grateful for the year 2018. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Within reflection, we've also looked at this platform, how it's served us and its shortcomings. Our gratitude is undeniable for the community we've been able to build through this service, but recent events have shown us that it's time to expand. Our dear sister, @grace___hazel_ with whom we soulfully collaborated with to bring you an offering tailored around female s*xual empowerment, has had her account removed. This Priestess is doing incredible, life changing work. Shaking the very foundation many have built their lives on. Yet accounts that objectify and represent dark figures in our society remain unscathed. If you would like to support Grace, please visit her temp account to find out how. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, what we'd really love to announce, is our new Podcast called •Merkabacast• coming in the New Year! We hope this additional platform will aid us in providing supportive and enriching content to more of our community 🙏 ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 The endlessly inspiring @juusohd
•THE SUBVERSIVE SOUL• We tend to focus on, and speak about the soul-life of an individual in terms of spiritual comfort and deep nourishment, qualities which are a central, and abiding dynamic of its presence, but the equally unsettling and disturbing quality about this strange, often wild and courageous faculty of belonging inside us we have come to name ‘the soul’ is its ruthless, and almost tidal wish to find its own way to a fuller union with the world. The soul is a planner’s nightmare, the career counselor’s central puzzle, the biographer’s conundrum, the saboteur of the puritanical and the unimaginative; an internal abiding spring that is both a source and a flow: an internal stranger at the door of our outer life about to break everything apart; a pilgrim often suddenly more in love with the horizon than its home; and most disturbingly, someone who would much rather fail spectacularly at their own life than succeed, imprisoned drably by the ordinary, at someone else’s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Winter Thoughts - David Whyte ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @jonnajinton for Winter Solstice '17
🎄HOLLY KING Reveal 2 : @chillysbottles 🎄 One of our sustainability-focused offerings in this month's •December HOLLY KING Merkababox• is a beautifully designed reusable coffee cup by Chilly's! ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chilly's double-walled containers are wonderful for sustaining temperatures - keeping hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. The coffee cups are made from 304 grade stainless steel and the lids are made from Tritan which is a BPA-free, impact resistant plastic. In our fast-paced, on-demand society, many of our habits become harmful to the Earth. Take-away coffee cups are not recyclable, so every time we 'grab a quick coffee' we are adding to the plastic waste issues we are facing. We all know that plastic is having a devastating impact on the planet, animals and our oceans so we want everyone to join us in saying no to single use plastics. It's especially bad around this time of year with Festive markets, celebrations, and general over-consumption. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Making a simple change can make a big impact. Start the new year off with a clear conscience. Keep this cup in your bag for your morning brew, be it homemade or from your local coffee shop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ↠ Join us for the •December HOLLY KING Merkababox• Subscription link in Bio ↞ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @davidjorre
🔥 FESTIVE WASTE 🔥 We love this time of year. The vibrance, the joy and celebration. But overall, there is a great concern as it's the most wasteful time of year. Each year, in the UK alone, we throw away enough wrapping paper to go around the equator nine times. Combine that with the 4,500 tons of tin foil and 13,350 tons of glass that goes through the waste disposal system and the countless gifts and gadgets that are chucked away because they’re unwanted, broken or just ‘old’. Then there's the non-gift related waste - christmas markets, food stalls, pop-up experiences, etc. Over consumption is promoted on a mass scale to the detriment of our beautiful planet. It's estimated that every Christmas tree bought in the UK this year put end to end, would be the equivalent of a return trip to New York City. We're looking at an estimate of over 300m tons of waste. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With this weighing on our hearts, we decided to add some sustainable items in our •December HOLLY KING Merkababox• that can aid you in improving your relationship to over consumption. Every bit of mindful interaction helps. 🙏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @haleyephelps
One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these - to be fierce and to show mercy toward others, both, are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - @clarissapinkolaestes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ Another beautiful piece from #folktaleweek2018 , this one by @szisszmok
🎄HOLLY KING Reveal 1 : Pyrite 🎄 Our crystal ally in the •December HOLLY KING Merkababox• is magickal Pyrite! ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pyrite is also known as 'Fool's Gold' due to commonly being mistaken for gold. It's the ultimate symbol of wealth and good fortune. If you're lacking motivation or physical strength, call on the Pyrite crystal and reconnect to Mother Nature with this power stone that harnesses the earth element, the powerful energies that ground you and guide your spirit to a place of higher wisdom. If you’ re ready to take action to achieve your dreams and aspirations, incorporate Pyrite and its divine guidance in your manifestation rituals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Its name comes from the Greek word for 'fire', because when you strike it against another rock, it gives off sparks and it causes a spark when it is hit with steel. As Yuletide is strongly associated with Fire, we offer Pyrite as your flame this month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ↠ Join us for the •December HOLLY KING Merkababox• Subscription link in Bio ↞ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @davidjorre
🌲 By the wonderful @bymariandrew 🌲
“Love is easy; obsession is hard.” Someone told me this once and I didn’t agree, probably because, at the time, I was thinking of relationships, which do involve difficulty, and which, even in the best cases, take work and patience. But the more I live, the more I see the great trick played on us by Hollywood, which has taught us to believe that certain types of suffering magically lead to happy endings: the pain of being fixated on another, the pain of wanting to possess, the pain of chasing superlatives such as “the One” or “the Only.” We believe this message, and as a result, our hearts sit on top of so many obsessions, warming eggs that will never hatch, while real love — the kind that brings peace — passes us by in a thousand different forms: the affection of our friends, the beauty of a city or countryside, the goodness in our hearts. And so, while of course love will sometimes kick up pain, and while of course love will sometimes show you parts of yourself you dislike, you must not forget that these experiences are the path, not the goal, the rind, not the fruit. When you are in pain, you must remember that you are seeing “the sky through a straw,” as the Tibetans say, and find a way to take responsibility for not seeing the wider landscape of your life. For in the end, it is true: love is easy; only obsession is hard." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - @tamlinmusic ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @everchanginghorizon

It's a time of celebration, honouring the light within, sharing food and laughter, love, and giving. Lots and lots of giving - in all forms. No matter what religious or spiritual background you come from, it offers a beautiful time to come together with friends or family and reflect on the year past and the year ahead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Holly King is a symbol of Winter Solstice. In folklore, it's when he's at the height of his reign, conquering the Sun. These symbols, stories, and traditions still exist to remind us of and bring us back to magick. The dark months can feel heavy and we can easily get lost, but the light of the flame guides us back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ↠ Join us for the •December HOLLY KING Merkababox• Subscription link in Bio ↞ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ Design by @solarsiren
✨ASCENSION Feature 5 : Labradorite✨ Our crystal ally in the •November ASCENSION Merkababox• the month of Magick, the month of Ascension, was enchanting Labradorite. ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is, in every sense, a Stone of Magick, a crystal of shamans, diviners, healers, and all who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance. For self-discovery, it is excellent for awakening one's own awareness of inner spirit, intuition and psychic abilities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meditating with Labradorite allows one to recognise humanity as "being of light," transcending limitations of the past and thoughts of the future, and embracing the infinite possibilities of the moment. It allows one to "be" and rest assured the light is always there, surrounding and pure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ↠ The •November ASCENSION Merkababox• SOLD OUT ↞ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @davidjorre

✨ASCENSION Feature 4 : Energy Generator Crystal✨ To aid in ascension and raising your vibration in the •November ASCENSION Merkababox• we offered a beautiful Rose Quartz + Clear Quartz Energy Generator. ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For thousands of years, our ancestors have recognised that crystals are power-filled objects. They offer massive benefits to our lives if we harness their energy. Energy generator crystals enhance the innate power of crystal with their special star-shaped formation. They raise the energy from the earth to the sky, and can bring universal light and knowledge into your space, rapidly raising the vibration in all directions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Each type and combination of crystals has its own uses, including healing, protecting, enhancing spellwork, and of course, energy generation. You can place them in your space, on your body, or at the centre of a grid. We've chosen the combination of Rose Quartz and Clear Quartz, 2 powerful crystals to enhance the heart-space energy and emit pure light vibration. An ultimate aid in this time of ascension and new Wheel of the Year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. Our product photo is of a Rose Quartz only Energy Generator. We had the combination stock custom made and weren't able to receive a sample in time for photography 💕 ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ↠ The •November ASCENSION Merkababox• SOLD OUT ↞ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @davidjorre
THE MYSTIC ALWAYS RISES "As she let her soul sing to her, she let go of lifetimes’ worth of silenced truth missiles cemented in the deepest caverns of her soul. A voice snuffed out for centuries, for saying too much, for standing up too much, for being too much. Her intuition and bigness restrained for centuries, but not any more. She could not be locked away, muted, or extinguished any longer. Not now. Not ever again. As she let her spirit move her, she danced right through the flames. Resentment, anger, and memories stomped out with every blazing convulsion, sway, and kick. Sensing her in the distance, one by one her sisters joined her, knowing this dance by heart. The movement created space for their tears, which flowed deeper than all of the rivers and lakes from all of the ages. Soothing and cooling the burning that once enveloped her entire being. Her whole body. All of her bodies. All of their bodies. All of our bodies. Never forgetting. But still rising, just as she planned to. Just as we planned to. Rising and rising and rising and rising and rising. Standing taller than all the sisters who came before and will continue to come again. The mystic always rises.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ― Rebecca Campbell, Light Is the New Black: A Guide to Answering Your Soul's Callings and Working Your Light ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 From the 'Work Your Light' Oracle Cards
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tools for the spirit and the vessel ✨ Here's a beautiful story from Tammy, the creator of @horseshoe_bay , about a divine connection between these 2 features. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "This week our Ineffable scrubs were released to the world in this month’s very special @merkababox This really did tap into me & created an overwhelming Ineffable moment, no pun intended! On my journey in the past few years, I picked up a beautiful book called ‘Light is the New Black’ by a very talented writer @rebeccathoughts it was in fact this book that gave me an overwhelming amount of support not only when my Mum was poorly but also during her passing & into this past year too. I would almost say Rebecca’s encouraging words & beautiful light guided me to create @horseshoe_bay & now....remarkably....this literally blows my mind, within 3 weeks of releasing my products to the world in loving memory of my lovely Mum, here they sit - featured in the very same beautiful subscription box as @rebeccathoughts ✨💕✨💕✨ Thank you to Rebecca & to the universe for bringing me full circle for a small moment...these are the signs that keep me going strong ~ Mum this is most definitely for you xx" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @nabalo
✨ASCENSION Feature 3 : @indigo_herbs ✨ Our herbal ally in the •November ASCENSION Merkababox• was mystical magickal Mugwort Tea. ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the Celtic Wheel of the Year, November is the 1st month. It's an auspicious beginning, for November is a month of magic, of dreams and imagination and ancestral remembrance. And therefore, this month is strongly associated with the herb Mugwort. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mugwort is a witch's herb, a stirrer of visions and an opener of portals. She heightens our extrasensory perception while simultaneously dropping us deep into our centre. It's just where we want to be. And where better sourced from than Indigo Herbs of Glastonbury? Glastonbury is one of the few places in the world that have held onto the ancient ways and path of magick, right here in the UK. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ NOTE: Please be careful playing with all this magick if you are pregnant 💕 Mugwort is powerful and not recommended for those expecting or trying for a little one. ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ ↠ The •November ASCENSION Merkababox• SOLD OUT ↞ ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ • ⍛ 📸 @davidjorre
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I believe that, seven generations beyond us, those who look back on our time will find that it was the cry of the trees that helped to restart the dreaming and foster the understanding that we must dream not only for ourselves, but also for our communities and for all that shares life with us in our fragile bubble of air. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Robert Moss
