I have this amazing friend, her name is Lady Lilyth. She is always introducing me to new ideas, deities, and things. She recently introduced me to The Universe Has Your Back, a deck of intention cards from Hay House (Find Gabrielle Bernstein’s stuff here). Well…they are more like reminder cards, but she had this great idea of turning each card that she drew into an intention. I loved it so much, that as I start this deck, I am going to borrow her idea. As I go through the last weekend in 2018 I am realizing that I didn’t follow … Continue reading End of the Year Reflections…
Often times we are told how we should live, where we should work, what is right for us, without anyone checking in on what it is we want. We allow others to create the reality that we live in, with little or no input from us. This is often the case with those who follow a “different” path in religion or beliefs. It is difficult when one does not “conform” to the holidays or the calendars of the societal norm. As we approach the season of Yule, I am often reminded of how intolerant and selfish others are. They focus … Continue reading Create Your Own Reality…and then live it
So, I did it. I bit the bullet and joined the Tarot Reader’s Academy Summer School. That’s 13 Tarot courses on a variety of topics starting Solstice (June 21). I am very excited to begin this next advancement in my Tarot journey and learn from a large variety of well known experts and practitioners in the field. The other thing that excites me about all of this is the sharing with you that I will get to do. I am also going to start a 78 day tarot study and place it here. This is something else I am excited … Continue reading Tarot, Tarot and a little more Tarot!
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
