Finding More Energy


Finding More Energy

Sometimes tapping into your energy reserves can be as simple as drinking more water, detoxing, finding your calmest center point by grounding into the earth and meditation with a crystal that calls to you. I think that today that crystal is citrine and clear quartz, which I will place in a grid around  an energizing bath today. I am starting to feel better. I'm coming through the fog of fatigue that I was in and my mind and body are waking up again. I can see myself being, doing and accomplishing things again. But I know that it's important not to rush myself and to find a steady pace in which to get my daily tasks done without burning out again and to let go of distractions. It's time to have tea and a soup infused with healing herbs like garlic, turmeric and ginger -- to fire up my digestion and kick start my immune system and my third chakra. It's time to think and be positive. No more tears!

The Next Chapter




The Next Chapter

Moving into the next phase of my life this year, I am focused on restoring and repairing my chakras and immune system. I went to the doctor yesterday and discovered that the flu I thought I had was a virus that had settled in my respiratory tract. The doctor said that the fatigue and subsequent shortness of breath that I had recently experienced over the weekend was likely from the virus and that it seems that it is moving its way out of my system. So that is great news. Yay! I could look at my recovery from this recent bout of illness as a setback, but I'm going to take it as Mercury Retrogrades shadow reinforcing that fact that I need to pace myself and take greater care of my health. Today's yoga practices are about repairing my throat chakra because my vocal cords need the TLC after coughing so much along with some gentle vocal exercises and herbal teas. I took my vitamins like a good girl. LOL both literally and figuratively. Now all that's left is to take a break, take a breath and move forward.

Even Just Five Minutes Counts


Even Just Five Minutes Counts

Today I couldn't fit a full-length yoga practice into my day, but sometimes you have to get it in where you can fit it in. Still I haven't missed a day of yoga yet and I don't plan to start even if I am getting over an upper respiratory tract viral infection. "I went to the doctor and guess what he told me" to quote Sinead O'Connor in the late Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U". Well his advice certainly wasn't about having fun. He told me to rest and that is exactly what I'm going to do. Sip some tea. Study. Read a book. "Watch a thing," as Jay says. I'm going to chill out. So goodnight people. 👍

Busy Day


Busy Day

Today was a crazy day where nothing went according to planned except cuddling in Jay's arm and telling him all about it. That was the best part of an otherwise dismal day. I was clutching my mostly green rainbow flourite crystal by the end of it all and taking deep breaths. And then there were taxes and a doctors appointment to make, along with woes. Tomorrow is another day.

One Step Forward And...


One Step Forward And...

Well you know how it goes sometimes, the one step forward and the whole "two steps" dilemma can screw things up sometimes -- turn them on their heads. I spent a lovely lazy Sunday with Jay and we went to the gaming party Open Battlestar and from there my energy levels took a dive again. I'm going to get it all checked out tomorrow so stay posted. Finger's crossed that everything's A-OK. See you on the flip side people.

Healing Energy


Healing Energy

Talk about healing energy! Today was all about it. I could feel my own coming back so much stronger. I have been working with the frequencies of colors both in meditation, chakra healing and in invocation of color energy as well. Today I called upon the spiritual, mind-body-soul connection of the healing purple ray. I've been drawn to it a lot, which has led me to work with lavender essential oil, amethyst crystal, Archangel Uriel and the calming, gentle nature of restoration that it brings with it. I am feeling blessed and grateful.

Crystal Madness


Crystal Madness

So lately I've been pretty engrossed in working with crystal energy. I am exploring the metaphysical properties of shungite and flourite and dreaming up crystal layouts and recipes for crystal elixers. Not surprisingly, I want to create a few for energizing the body and fortifying stamina. I also have ones in mind for immunity and health and vitality. When I create some, I'll post a few layouts and recipes on my blog. It should be a fun summer project to dream up recipes and various crystal healing formations. This is gonna be great fun!
