Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I wrote about how DeAndre’ Bembry maintains his positivity and how his energy raises thoe around him.
On the night before he returned to the Toronto Raptors, DeAndre’ Bembry posted a picture of two candles and a Palo Santo stick burning on a monochromatic marble table.
The candles were a sea salt sage scent to promote reflection and clarity and a Mediterranean citrus to refresh and rejuvenate. The Palo Santo stick, meanwhile, is said to offer clear, grounded energy. Or, as the caption on his Instagram story suggested, talking to his mind, body and soul.
“In my family, we’ve always (used candles), for a good amount of time. I’ve always loved candles,” Bembry said over the weekend. “It’s something I’ve always just been into. I kind of do it on my own. Just a spiritual thing that keeps your mental going.”
