Tree Tomato Tahini

Can I give you a massage?” Savannah, the beautiful five-year old asked me. “Sure!” I answered. And you know what she did? After rubbing my shoulders for a couple minutes, she rubbed my third eye in circles for a good amount of time. How did she know to do that? It is a kundalini yoga technique to open the third eye for awakening. She’s done it twice. How in the world!
