recommended:if you're in the LA area: get a love limpia: "Limpias - in the practice of Curanderismo, a Latin American healing practice, there is a tradition of doing cleanses of the spirit that may have manifested in emotional and/or physical blocks. I reconnected with this practice as it's part of my lineage from my Mexica great-great-grandmother and great-grandmother who were both curanderas and mid-wives. The Love Limpia helps clear out emotional and / or physical blocks about love."
