′′ Grandma, how do you face pain?”
With your hands, baby. If you do it with your mind, instead of relieving pain, it gets even harder.
With the hands grandma?
Yes, our hands are the antennas of our soul.
If you move them by knitting, cooking, painting, playing or sinking them into the earth, you send signs of care to the deepest part of you. And your soul lights up, because you’re paying attention to it.
Then signs of pain will no longer be necessary.
Are hands really that important?
If my daughter, think of babies, they begin to know the world, thanks to the touch of their little hands.
If you look at the hands of old people, they tell you more about their life than any other part of the body.
Everything that is done by hand, is said to be made with the soul. Because it’s really like that, hands and soul are connected.
Think of lovers, when they touch hands, they make love in a sublime way.
My hands grandma… Long time haven’t worn them like this…
Move them my love, start creating with them and everything inside you will move.
The pain won’t pass.
And instead whatever you do with them, it will become the most beautiful masterpiece.
And it won’t hurt anymore.
Because you’ve been able to transform their essence.

And the funny thing is, Ivenoven got its start with sugar cookies and a family’s passion for baking that was passed down to the next generation: a goddaughter.
“My baking passion and journey started one fine day when I was sneaking around in my godma’s house trying to look for her baking recipes, and maybe, just maybe, bring the recipes back home for my own collection,” write Ivenoven on their blog.
The bakery got its start in 2013 and originally began with cookies. The passion for baking and design grew robust and propelled the bakery into artisan cakes and treats becoming bigger every day.
What’s makes this bakery even better is the fact that all of the premium ingredients are sourced locally and internationally to preserve quality.
Ivenoven has attracted thousands of followers on Instagram from all over the world praising the cakes and begging for a stateside bakery who can replicate the work of this special bakery.

Summer sun, fairies, butterflies enchantment. And in enchantment, wonder. And in wonder, the stars and the moon. And in the stars and moon, magick. And in magick, Litha. And in Litha, celebration. And in celebration, blessings. And in blessings, love and light. And in love and light, nature. And in nature, strength. And in strength, Sun God.- Have a blessed Litha, Summer Solstice.
Midsummer is also sometimes referred to as Litha. Litha is(pronounced “LITH-ah”). The celebration of Midsummer’s Eve was from ancient times linked to the summer solstice. People believed that mid-summer plants had miraculous and healing powers and they, therefore, picked them on this night. Bonfires were lit to protect against evil spirits which were believed to roam freely when the sun was turning southwards again. The solstice itself has remained a special moment of the annual cycle of the year since Neolithic times. The concentration of the observance is not on the day as we reckon it, commencing at midnight or at dawn, but the pre-Christian beginning of the day, which falls on the previous eve. In Sweden and Finland, Midsummer’s Eve is considered the greatest festival of the year, comparable only with Walpurgis Night, Christmas Eve, and New Year’s Eve.
It marks the first day of summer on traditional calendars, but it is actually the Midsummer mark for Pagans.
Litha marks the longest day of the year, the day when the sun reaches its apex and is aspected to zero degrees Cancer. This is a day that celebrates the God in all his glory. It is also the time of year when the Goddess is glowing with motherhood in her pregnancy.
For those of you familiar with Shakespeare, you might remember the play centered around the Solistice: “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream”. It is believed that Midsummer Night’s Eve is a special time for those who believe in the Faerie traditions. Like Samhain, this is a day where the veils are thin between the realms of the Sidhe (the Faerie realm) and the world of mortals. It is a time for merriment and the making of wishes.
On this day the Sun God is seen at his highest point in the sky, vibrant and strong. Together with the pregnant Mother Goddess, he rules the summer season. However, this is also a time of transition, for now, the Sun will begin its yearly descent and the days grow shorter until the Winter solstice. The Druids viewed this day as the wedding of Heaven and Earth, Alban Heruin. The Moon of this month was known as “The Honey Moon” in a testimonial to the honey mead that was drunk at the wedding celebrations so common to this time of year
“The past has no power over the present moment”- Eckhart Tolle.
It takes commitment to be in the Now. It takes commitment from you for you to experience the Now. It takes commitment to be still, to relax, slow down. It takes being persistent and consistent. It takes desire, will power and focus every moment, every day to be in the Now. Your future depends on your now and in the now how you choose. And in your choice the knowing. And in your knowing the understanding. And in understanding the knowledge. And in knowledge the guidance. And in guidance the awareness. And in awareness the truth of you the soul. If you are living in the past and future how will you know what you are choosing? And why did you make that choice? How will you know why an experience or an event happened in your life in the now and what choice did you make for this to happen?? What is happening in your present in the now is a result of your choices. To change your now you have to be in the now to know what needs to be changed. You cannot live in the past and future for change to happen now is it? You need to feel your feelings and emotions in the now in order to change the past and build the life you want for your future. Now is where your power lives. It is where your soul lives. And to be in the now commit to meditation, commit to having a spiritual practice everyday. Commit to questioning your beliefs, belief system. Commit to being completely honest with yourself. Only you can help you.
Make a choice to commit to you and then follow the next step to take action on the commitment you just made. And then the next step will show up. Do not think 10-50 steps ahead. Just doing one step and walking one step at a time. That’s how we live in the now. Your next step what you need to do will be shown to you. Your feelings, emotions, negativity, judgement, control, jealousy, guilt, fear, arrogance, hostility, self centered etc are all caused by not staying and practicing to being in the now. Times are such where this is your only savior. Be still. Be Mindful. Learn about you the good, bad and the ugly. If you take care of your now your future will take care of itself.
