I don't have much to say, out loud, but I've heard folks like to hear about the person behind the products. So, my first entry in my latest blog, the blog for Sanctum Potions, I will attempt to tell you a little story about myself.
My full name is Ashley Alexandria Sierra, most people call me Ash. I was born in the year of the Tiger, contemplating stars and the deep unknown, even when it appeared terrifying. My hands have been in the dirt since childhood, my most favorite memories involve harvesting blueberries for pie with my grandma in the great Appalachia's and gem mining in the mountain creeks. So of course, that is where I have ended up, nestled in, made my abode.
I'm truly an introvert, reenergizing from long bathes, long books, long stares into the Ivy river. Most of my days are spent with non-human creatures, the animals which I feel most comfortable with. I care for a flock of sheep, ducks, chickens, cows - one diary cow who owns my heart - two precious guardian Pyrenees and of course my feline friends, three of which sleep in my bed.
I believe, as Lauryn Hill sang, everything is everything. We are all one degree away from being each other; one life lesson that our soul has come to learn. So, be kind, be giving, mostly importantly be true to yourself.
My -self, whatever that may be, tells me I am a few breathes away from death, so live this adventure to your fullest. I over empathize and under articulate. I love crafting and creating beauty. I have a hard time with dominant society and set standards. I can't bring myself to wear bright colors but I love people who do; I prefer pastels and muted tones. I've always had a part of me that goes too deep, into very depressed states, since a child, but I've learn to use this as a tool over the years. It's given me the experience to greatly help others who have life debilitating emotional depths, both highs and lows. It takes a strong level of comfort (or alcohol) for me to open up to people, and speak my mind - Scorpio Rising and pluto right at home. I'm open to almost anything but do have personal ideals and rituals. I'm an extremist. I was once dedicated to yoga but not how one would think. I'll talk nutrition, herbals and stars all day. I also like to sit around and shoot the shit over a delicious meal and herbal tonic. Sometimes I'm a bitch. You can find me at home in the forest, but I still embrace smart technology, whether it be human or plant. I feel a close connection to the dark sides of life most people may fear, and I am ready to dive in for you.
Our consciousness is a thin veil which we have been creating since birth, possibly before. There are other realms, right before our eyes. Let's believe in magic, lets explore these hidden treasures.
I have credits to, plenty of certifications things, but what does that really matter...
