Yes, that’s right, I have finally kicked the nasty creep and crud. That means we should be getting back to regularly scheduled blog posts and some interesting information. Today I wanted to discuss altars. What an altar is, what is can be used for and why you might have one, no matter your beliefs. Merriam-Webster.com defines an altar as: 1: a usually raised structure or place on which sacrifices are offered or incense is burned in worship —often used figuratively to describe a thing given great or undue precedence or value especially at the cost of something else sacrificed his … Continue reading I’m Better!
So 7 days later I am still sick. Today was the first day I felt a little hungry, but my cough is still gross, my nose still needs constant attention and I’m exhausted. I do feel good that I only took 1 day off of work, but I can’t say that I was fully here either. I am sorry to say that I haven’t done any new research for the blog. I am certain by the weekend I will feel up to having new and exciting stuff for you for next week. For now I need to focus on getting … Continue reading Getting there
I have…something. It is gross. I promise to be back with deeper thoughts, tarot and oils as soon as I can breath and am not exhausted. Be happy in the meantime!! Continue reading Sick!!!
Yep, we have arrived at Monday. I have discovered that Mondays come with their own unique set of issues. One that I discovered today, language. My seniors were finishing up their presentations. Friday they had amazing presentations, great speech patterns, despite being nervous, and no language slippage. Today…well let’s just say I had some great presentations that received poor marks due to poor speaking, inappropriate language, and slang!!!! Yes, slang in a formal presentation and project. *sigh* I know that the world is different for those who are younger, I teach high school and have for many, many years. However, … Continue reading Monday is as Monday does!
We have made it through the week! Congratulations. Today’s oils are anxiety ease and breathe easier. The kids are doing presentations so keeping their anxiety to a minimum and helping them take deep breaths is in order. These are blends created by Eden’s Garden. Anxiety ease is a balanced mixture of Sweet Orange, Ylang Ylang and Lemongrass. Breathe Easier is a healing mixture of Lemon, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. The two blend so well together and the classroom smells amazing. (Eden’s Garden) The diffuser not only helps them, but it keeps any anxiety I might be having at bay as well. I … Continue reading Happy Friday!
It happens. I missed a day. I was doing so well too! However, I have decided not to worry about it. I realized it right around 11 p.m. last night and decided I was too tired to type something up. It had really been one of those days. I am a reader. I love books. The issue when I read is that I tune everything and everyone out. I get so focused that I forget the real world is happening. I had taken a break from reading last week to see what it felt like. Go figure, dishes got done, … Continue reading So…..
Merry Meet!! I hope your Monday is going well. Over the weekend I managed to get the meditation/altar/exercise space cleaned and I sorted through all my clothes and got rid of 4 bags of stuff. I am sure there is more I can do, but for now it is a start. Everything isn’t all organized yet, that’s for the next couple of evenings when hubby is at work. However, there is a start, and clean space on the floor, which means I can at least keep moving, get grounded and return to a state of being me. This is important! … Continue reading I Did It!
Now most people would say that is a heavy statement. I use the word hate, which of course is strong language and I could tone it down I suppose. If I did tone it down, however, it would not convey the absolute loathing I feel when the perfumes, heavily scented with the frangrant flower billow over my senses. By now you are wondering why I even stated this. Why should you care? You should care because this is a post about essential oils. And no matter who you are, lavender is at the core of essential oils. Not the lavender … Continue reading I Hate Lavender
Ah the joys of sleep…what are those? Today, I couldn’t tell you. After a wonderful evening out, a little shopping, some hanging out with the kids before they went off to do their own thing, up to bed I went. Hubby turned on a movie I wasn’t even interested in seeing so he could go to sleep and I closed my eyes. Then I opened them, less than 30 seconds later. He was already asleep…granted he had worked the night before and had not done any sleeping yet, so I can understand that. I don’t begrudge him sleeping when he … Continue reading Late Nights
You know when it is really bad and you can’t see past all the things you have done wrong, or you haven’t listened to, or you didn’t get done? Those times when it seems like you are more of a burden and create more of a hassle for others than helping and taking care of yourself and your business? Yeah, me too. When it seems like just emptying the dishwasher and making dinner are taking up so much energy there isn’t anything left to do what you wanted to get done. Last night didn’t see me clearing away space in … Continue reading Self-Loathing
