Happy Halloween/Samhain

Standard

Friends, I hope you’ve had a wonderful Halloween and Samhain!

What have you done that’s exciting? I usually throw a party, but that’s not what was in the cards this year. Maybe a Christmas party is in the works, though ❤ 

I got to spend the day at home. Some outside things were stressful, but really everything went quite well today. I got to clean at least one room, which I really needed to do. I got some laundry done.

Who does not dress up on Halloween?? A lot of people. But I’m not one of them. You’ll always see me dress up, even as a simple witch. Last year I was a fairy. This year? A Bellydancer!

As you know, I’ve been doing my own bellydancing videos and such, and I always find it fun and rewarding. For the first time, thanks to Beachbody, I’ve gotten the encouragement and motivation to post me dancing.

 

I thank Beachbody not because I’ve suddenly lost a lot of weight – that’s not how that works. I’m on a health journey. Yes, my belly may look big here. But it’s improving. I feel it. Shakeology works from the inside out. I’ve already lost about 6 pounds, waiting for more. So I have the courage to post, because it’s my journey that I want to share with others, and so other people can feel free to talk to me about their journey and what can help them.

 

 

I hope you enjoy these Belly dancing videos I made – I really love to dance!! It’s so fun and makes me feel better after. One day, I’ll be even better 😉 

Happy Halloweeeeeeen!!!! Stay beautiful, my friends!!

Namaste with love,

XOXO

Hi my dear friends, 

How are you? I know haven’t been on here enough. Of course my work is busy this month, but pretty busy the next 2 months as well. 

I got to visit my friend Melissa last weekend and do a Halloween house type thing … except … it was in the rain 😂 But still enjoyable ! We always have fun together. 

Annnndddd then back home to coziness and wine 😂

And also this weekend we are going out of town too! Brian and I are going to … Florida … again! For my friend Jennyfer’s birthday celebration 😊 

Exciting. 


When I have time, I’ve been developing my Beachbody online coach business, which means developing myself. 


Annnnd doing random yoga poses 😂

It does take time, practice, dedication, but I am doing better than I have been. My main methods are my Shakeology and exercising to the Beachbody workout videos. I am feeling stronger and lighter already. 
Work on yourself, think of the goals for your highest good, aligning with God’s will, and all will fall into place. What does your soul want? What would advance your spirit? What are you being moved to do now? It does change.

Listen. 
Until next time,

Namaste with love,

Kitties! & Reincarnation.

Standard

We have new Kitties: Link and Magick, both boys 🙂 

Brian and I took a trip to my hometown to get these kittens from my Godmother. They had a litter of five kittens. Brian and I had been talking before that if we ever got new kittens, we need to get two at a time, and the idea was both males. This was so they would end up like being like my in-law’s cats who are

  1. Affectionate (Males are more affectionate)
  2. They would be cuddle buddies and playmates always.

The kittens were originally living outside, and we chose the most affectionate out of the bunch. We were told Magick was a girl, so we actually picked her out anyway. What I truly wanted was a black cat, so I could be like a good witch with a black cat 🙂 Brian’s mom was very upset when she found out we took a girl and a boy.

We didn’t find out he was a boy until I took them to the vet yesterday for all their expensive shots. But they are worth it.  ❤ 

Do you believe in reincarnation?

Link and Magick ❤ New babies!

Animals have a tendency to reincarnate towards us.

My cat Darlen passed away about a year and a half ago. She was my soul mate cat since like I was 10 years old. But she didn’t have an easy life, with surgeries from ulcers, and my dad declawed her when she was young. But we loved each other fiercely. It was very hard to let her go.

I told my husband since then that, although we had an older cat (his cat) named Eesha, she did not connect with me the same way of course. And Eesha doesn’t liked to be picked up, and doesn’t cuddle that much. For many reasons, I wanted a kitten to start over kind of finding my soul-mate kitty again. And Brain understood…. but money. 

Luckily we have credit cards. 

My cat Darlen I got from my Godmother’s litter many, many years ago. (She often has cats). And when a new litter came around this time, she posted about it, showed me pictures, and I was intrigued. Yes, it would be money that we didn’t have at this time. Yes it was a new, big step. But, we’d talked about having kittens and I was drawn to see them because one was a black cat – what I’ve always wanted! So I wanted to go to see how they reacted to me. 

We eventually took the two most affectionate cats who came up to us multiple times and was willing to cuddle. ❤ 

The thing is guys, my Godmother is a psychic medium who channels higher beings. After we chose our cats, the very next day, she confirmed that two of the cats we took were reincarnated animals coming back to us. Link was Brian’s old dog named Jenny, and Magick was indeed Darlen!! I thought so! I was so excited to find out the truth, because his mannerisms are the same, as well as the look in his different-colored eyes.

I have my soul-mate cat again, my friends!

Magick ❤ Reincarnation of my cat Darlen

Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, it’s a nice story. If you don’t believe yet, maybe do some research and see if you’re drawn to it.

We love our new, energetic kittens!

Have you Experienced this with YOUR animals? Feeling a connection to them when they pass and you eventually get a new animal?

 

Namaste with Love,

Rabbit Hole of Mindfulness

Standard

+I have a few meditation apps, one called Calm and one called Aura (both free versions, of course).

16 - DSC_0955.jpg

Me doing some yoga with my friend Melissa as photographer. We actually went to a free yoga session after this in the RR Park in Birmingham, where she lives!

Calm mentioned something to me last time that stuck with me, and that is being mindful of the present instead of focusing on invading thoughts. I used to think – but why would I focus on mindfulness if I don’t want to be here in this situation? Usually I could take myself away with happy thoughts and daydreams.

But I start to realize that they mean mindfulness as an escape from nightmarish thoughts, the ones that get you in a negative state and poke at you eternally.

Lately, I’ve been dealing with co-worker issues. I am a friendly person, I swear, who always tries to do my best and be professional and be happy. But some personalities clash, and some people have different ideas on what is professional, and some people are two faced bitches.

(Yes, bitches has become my new favorite phrase lately, kind of makes me feel cathartic. Yes I’m a spiritual person, and it actually releases some stress when I say the word, so there!! lol)

Also, to be clear, I work in events where different people take charge and be the head House Manager for certain events, but lately everyone tries to take charge over other people, and it just doesn’t work. What is most annoying is, we are not working as a team when we should be.

We are talking behind each others’ backs, annoying the hell out of each other in person, and then smooth our faces several minutes later and pretend it didn’t happen, but continue to talk about each other. Does it sound like women to you? Yeah, it doesn’t help that in my department we’re mostly women. Apparently women who have trouble with team work.

I really don’t know what it is with certain people, or in my case certain co-workers, y’all. My husband says he works with mostly nice people, while my mom has had social problems at work all her life. I never thought I would have the problem myself, but there you go. I have a friend at work I can share my thoughts with, and she’s completely on my side, and thinks these certain people are weird, and rude, and those that just like to be in control and won’t have it another way. Won’t admit they’re wrong for anything.

(Which brings me to another tangent that whenever I’m in charge, I take the blame for whatever wrong occurs because guess what? I probably didn’t communicate clearly so something went wrong. Therefore, it’s my fault. I’m imperfect – I learn from it for next time. But if you’re in charge and don’t take the falls, then that’s an immature way to handle things. In my opinion.)

You can tell I’m dealing with stuff. And I find that these certain PEOPLE kept creeping up in my thoughts, and certain dang SITUATIONS replayed in my mind, whether how it turned out or how I would want it to turn out or… on and on and on.

So I’m realizing… oh, so MINDFULNESS is being in the moment, noticing what is happening and being more of an observer. Kind of taking out emotional reactions. But also being in the moment and with the people I’m with, (or with myself if I’m at home and ruminating), and not thinking about those replaying thoughts.

So, I’ve been trying to push the thoughts that make me feel negative away. Trying to replace it with positive ones, like concentrating on my goals, or thinking of my husband, or even general things like fairies and nature. Looking out a window at the sunshine.

BECAUSE if I don’t push out the thoughts, than those negative people and situations have taken control of me, have dominated me (probably how they wanted to dominate me) and I ALLOWED IT!!

So thought-control/mindfulness in this manner is one step that I’m taking, and one that will take a lot of PRACTICE. (Just like yoga is a forever practice.)

Another step I’m taking is prayer. Repeating affirmations about my life, my work, and my goals to Goddess/God, Angels, and the Universe. How do I want to solve this? What do I want my next steps to be? Can I pray to clear out of my life those that affect me negatively? It couldn’t hurt. Once you learn your physical lesson, that problem fades out of your life anyway. And I am certainly learning in this situation.

Practice.

Breathe slower.

Focus on mindfulness.

Vanishing thoughts.

Only pleasant thoughts.

 

Namaste With Love,

Reminisce of Our First Date & LOA

Standard

Lately I feel running around and stressed. I obviously haven’t had much time for writing, although I wish it were different. I think April will be an easier month where events are concerned at where I work, so maybe a little breather coming my way!

For the past few days, I’ve been celebrating my husband’s birthday, as well as the first day we met. His birthday is the 28th, and three years ago we met on the 27th in person. We met online at first, can you believe it? And now we’ve been married 10 months!

Wedding smile

Before I met the love of my life, I’d always dated guys that I met on free online dating websites because I went to Wesleyan College, the first college to grant degrees to women in 1836, and still an all-women’s college. I had to meet men somehow. 😉

I set out that “this time” after breaking up with my non-committing bf of 4 years, that “this time,” I would find the man of my heart’s core, the one I would marry and settle down with! I wasn’t going to stop until I found him, and I wasn’t giving up. Each guy I went on a date with, I became more and more specific with what qualities I wanted. (For instance, someone once drew to my attention that not everyone loves animals, and he didn’t care for my cat and… well… what?! Who could not love animals? Nah, never saw him again. Updated my online dating profile: My guy must love animals.)

I kept putting out to the universe each detail I wanted in a man! I was used to doing this spiritual process of the Law of Attraction, actually. I’ve always been able to land the guys that I called for with the exact qualities I asked for… just also with qualities I didn’t ask for. So I tried to make this marriage-relationship I tried to find incredibly detailed and not missing anything. Let’s just say the Universe brought me exactly what I requested!!! He’s the perfect man for me and he’s my soul mate, which is exactly what I searched for! There may be a few details I did not think about to ask, but it’s perfectly fine because we’re meant to be and we’re so in love 😀 We got married last May 21st.

I always recommend online dating to people, but I also recommend being detailed and sending out in your mind, projecting to the Universe, to the Angels, to the spirit of the Goddess-God, praying about what you dream of.

My husband and I met in the middle of where we lived, in a lovely coffee shop in Atlanta. He sat outside and had a red rose for me. My heart was beating fast as I realized this guy was HANDSOME and ROMANTIC… I might not just let him go. 😉 After two hours of talking, I asked him what time he liked to eat dinner. Then we walked and found a fancy pizza and wine place and enjoyed ourselves there till our midnight walk on the bridge together. We were actually too nervous to make the first move to kiss that night, as we waited for the other to make the move, but when he walked me to my car, I did ask him when I could see him next. Which I hadn’t really done (or followed through with) any of my previous dates. I knew it was right.

I proceeded to meet him and his family at his church (the one we ended up getting married in). I consider him and his family to have more spiritual/new age views, like I do, yet they go to a Lutheran church. We go? Well, Brian and I haven’t actually been in a long time, not too often since the wedding, since the two pastors moved on. Our schedules have changed a LOT since then, though, with his promotion and my new job. So, we don’t exactly get Sundays off anymore. (Why do people want events on Sunday mornings anyway??) The church wasn’t as important as community and family time, although it can be fun, even though I prefer Unity Church myself if I get to choose a church.

Anyway, we like to reenact the first day that we met every year, nice romantic gesture. It’s stressful when our jobs pulls us in separate directions, but we always find our way together and our way back to each other 🙂

Now, I need to make goals to do more yoga because I’ve been feeling out of wack when I don’t have enough time but a few dismal stretches a day. I need to make time to write, and read, and meditate. Time is all, and time is nothing. All is well, and all will be. 🙂

More later!

Namaste,
