On August 11th the new moon rose in Leo (a partial Solar Eclipse and Supermoon), signifying new beginnings, unexpected blessings and the birth of Kozmic Ryder. This enigmatic brand is designed to help people on their personal, spiritual journeys making purpose, magic and empowerment universally accessible – without the bullshit.
Ani Ferlise, just 25 years old, is the ANI in ALEX AND ANI and the daughter of the brand’s founder, Carolyn Rafaelian. Kozmic Ryder was created using a wealth of knowledge she obtained from various teachings and life experiences including: sacred bee keeping (ordained as Priestess of the Bees), Reiki (currently a Reiki Master) · astrology, aromatherapy, herbalism, studying under a witch (initiated as Green Witch), working at a Goddess Temple, studying with a Shaman, working as a Death Doula, attending sweat lodges, vision quests and SO much more!
Through moon ceremonies, online discussions, and an experiential box-series, Kozmic Ryder allows users to be their own guru while also connecting to the magic in the world around them. The first kit from Kozmic Ryder is focused on Lucid Dreaming and will heighten a regular night’s sleep into a spiritual experience. What’s lucid dreaming? It’s the state of being conscious and aware while dreaming, which not only allows you to have control over what happens in the dream, but also to tap inner creativity, receive signs and messages, and explore sides of yourself that you haven’t been able to see before.
The kit contains things that have been personally helpful to Ferlise in her own lucid dreaming practice: a votive candle, a tea blend that helps to induce a state of lucid dreaming, an essential oil blend useful in mediation spirituality and psychic awareness, palo santo to clear negative energy, amethyst to protect and open the mind to receiving messages, and a “Kozmic Cloth” illustrated by artist Tate Eknaian to serve as a reminder of the user’s journey. Using these tools will help you connect with an experience that was more natural as a child but now can be achieved as an adult: Lucid Dreaming.
With four more kits pending launch, Kosmic Ryder will become a go-to platform for users to connect, teach each other, and share spiritual practices and experiences.
