Journey – Self Love

Standard

Self love IS a journey, and not necessarily an easy one in a physical vessel.

A lot of what is in our environment sticks in our minds, and what we see when we look in the mirror can speak louder than bombs.

I LOVE sugary sweets and always have, but I also LOVE to exercise (as I’ve shared with you, talking about my liking Bellydancing, Yoga, and nature walks). But over the years… I’ve had less time to exercise, and then the negatives in my body just added up. I am not as thin as I would like to be, nor as strong. I do yoga, but not enough. I goal set to one day teach yoga.

So I’m doing something about it! I’m on my fitness journey to improve the health of my body, therefore its’ longevity. My goal is to get fit, and strong enough to one day get certified to teach yoga.

And guess what? I’m also coaching others to do the same with their fitness journey!

Remember my last blogs when I mentioned that when I work at home and work outside of home, it’s just too much, that I’m always working when I am at home? Well, I’ve decided that when our typing contract is up, to make my peace with it and part ways, while still working at my other job. I love transcribing, but it’s just taking up any freedom I could have.

I was not able to achieve “full time” at my job yet, but I was told I would be getting some kind of raise later on, so that makes it better. Dropping transcribing will make space in my life. This space that I need. The space that I also need for simple things like getting exercise.

Beachbody is helping me on my fitness journey, with the ultra healthy Shakeology. While I am making new space in my life, being a Beachbody coach will be my way of making the supplemental income that I’ll need when I leave typing. And yet I won’t feel like I’m constantly on the clock, like I did with transcribing. 

There’s not too many downsides to being a Beachbody Coach, really. But here’s what I see benefiting:

Being a coach:

  1. I am helping others to love themselves more, feel comfortable in their bodies
  2. I am loving myself more and being more comfortable in my body
  3. Whoever I coach, and I, will be getting the nutrients from Shakeology that I know I wasn’t getting before
  4. Our bodies will last longer if we treat it right
  5. Once I’m good enough, I get my yoga certification!

I already strive to help people in different ways, through my poetry, spiritual contemplation blogs, music, and now fitness. I do it all, because I love it all.

Thank you for reading my blogs, friends!

Let me know if you would like me to be your coach on your own fitness journey. Just comment or e-mail me. Or of course, if you’d like to buy a copy of Soul Thoughts. 😀

Speculum – a poem

Standard

Here is a lovely poem for you all, my friends. 

Look to the Heavens, see yourself. You are the Universe. The stuff of the stars is inside of us all. We are all one, all connected, all of our atoms, the things we are made of, is all the same, all space, all light.   

This is what I was contemplating.

Soul Absorption – a poem

Standard

Peace and Love are going out from me today into the hurricane, into the people affected. My uncle & his wife are in FL. My grandma who also lives there is now visiting with my dad in GA. I hope you are all well. Sending you my love as well.

This poem is a love poem, so it’s unrelated to the hurricane or present worries. This is actually in my poetry book, Soul Thoughts. I hope you enjoy it!

Ocean Journey

Standard

I went on a much needed vacation: Treasure Island in Florida! We drove there, (did a lot of driving on the trip) and I sincerely didn’t want to leave the water. The Gulf is clear with calm waves, and warm like a refreshing bath. I literally didn’t want to ever leave the comfort of the water. 

I posted  a lot of silly Snapchat/Instagram videos and pics of our journey (please follow my Instagram to see :D), but going to the Ocean is a really spiritual journey for me

I used to tell my dad, “Visiting the ocean is like visiting God,” and he never forgot that. 
The sea is welcoming to me always, inviting, a conversationalist itself, and it always not only hears me, but understands me. I FEEL that it understands me, to my core. It responds to my thoughts, and more strongly, my words.

It may be strange to say this about a body of water, but I‘ve always felt this strong connection to it. It’s hard to explain.

Spiritual signs I noticed for me: 


1. Seagulls crossed in front and behind me on the first night we visited the beach (a sign of clearing the path)
2. I called to the Dolphins and they showed up twice 🐬
3. We looked at the stars at night, and I saw a shooting star (or UFO) …
4. We saw cool lightning every night
5. The rain started and stopped for us as I prayed for it
6. Double rainbows
7. The sky was expansive, ever gorgeous, and I wanted to jump into the sunsets
8. I asked for the healing of the ocean, and felt it
9. The cosmic significance of the solar eclipse 


Visiting the ocean is such a welcomed, spiritual journey that means a lot to me. I’d love to live close to the water, I am sad parting from it, and I can’t wait to see it again. ❤

I miss you, Treasure Island!!

Balance

Standard

I know I have been out of balance lately, and reading my friend RhapsodyBoheme’s post, I realize that’s how I should put it in words.

I have known that I am trying to work as much as possible at both my jobs, and I’ve been sleep deprived this month. I know what I’ve been trying to do to myself. And even my husband comments on me always working, and I know it. Knowing it doesn’t change anything though. Until I buckle down and change it!! haha

Now, I think it is actually fine to go through periods and phases of work-work-work, because when money needs to be made, and things have to get done at work, it just must be done! But then my body tells me that it’s unsatisfied. My hours have been crazy at work, so I have been tired, and my brain fuzzy and unfocused, and I haven’t spent a lick of time outside, and I don’t give myself time to exercise or dance. I just work, and spend time on my phone on my down time, on my Instagram fandom creating stories (if you’re my IG friend, you realize this) and also reading my books on my phone (since my Nook has passed on into the other world 😦 – super sad, RIP Nook-Reader). The amount of time I’m on the internet has a play as well in the headaches/migraines I’ve been having.

The interesting not-fun fact is, I get migraines/headaches a bit, and I have scoliosis so that is a big cause. My neck has completely straight, when it’s supposed to have a natural curve. Although I am trying exercises to get a curve back. Anyway, the weight of my head on my neck is hard to handle. Anyway… so I get headaches and nothing helps except visits to the chiropractor (I go every two weeks nowadays, but I wish it was every week), and pain-killers such as Advil or Tylenol.

I’ve tried everything else to get rid of headaches – massage, long baths, sleep (if I sleep with a headache, I awaken with a worse one), and some herbal remedies that haven’t worked. (I’m open to trying more herbal remedies, in fact I goal set for one to work for me! So if you have an idea, please share it.) I’ve taken Advil for about five days straight this week, and this morning, I woke up with such a bloody headache that I tell you – I started questioning myself.

My day so far: Finally getting enough sleep last night, I was off today at home. Of course, I’m supposed to type at home whenever I have a free day off. I’m always supposed to type, according to my own head, hehe. But I moved quite slowly today. Amidst petting kitties, I got my breakfast, wrote some fan-fiction stories, read some of a book, then did a bunch of darn dishes and cleaned the counters because our kitchen was a wreck!!! Utter wreck. So I spent hours cleaning, but I felt better afterwards (kind of therapeutic). I tried to take a walk outside, but the mosquitoes were so bad I went inside before 5 minutes was up. I was sad. I enjoy the nature. But literally fighting off the mosquitoes got annoying. And sometimes they won and got me. So… I went inside. *Hopes for autumn to come so the mosquitoes won’t be as bad*

Now I’m here typing, about to help edit a book, about to try and type, and about to try to squeeze belly dancing in my day as my new videos came yesterday, and my husband will be home soon.

I always goal set to do a lot in a day 🙂

But today has been a more balanced day off for me. Yes, I will type some because I have a very large overdue file in. But I am more balanced. I just need to add meditating in here somewhere too. 🙂

What do you do when you feel out of balance? Do you feel in or out of balance now?wowww my balance picc

My site

Creative & Therapeutic

Standard

I have been spending a lot of time in my fan fiction Instagram community,  called Weaves of the Wheel: Talanverse. Our community is based on the Wheel of Time book series by Robert Jordan.

Spending time there is part of what takes me away from here, as I enjoy it so much, and the people that I meet on there, that I spend much of my free time doing that. But in the community, what is also important to me is writing. We write fan fiction stories using our avatar characters we’ve created, sometimes including each other in the stories, sometimes not.

And I love creating these stories in the Wheel of Time universe! I love having people read the stories and commenting on them. But mostly the writing itself is therapeutic for me. It’s just for fun, too. I’m not trying to prove anything by writing. I write quickly, and I’m good at it! I take an idea and run with it. On Instagram, I’m @Celestialkpoetry, but I’m also @grayajah for my role play account. (Both accounts, though, actually post these stories now).

I just wanted to share that sometimes your creative self can be therapeutic. In my stressful moments of life, I can take a break and come to a story, and be who I want to be, and make happen what I want to make happen.

Everyone can have a different kind of therapy. I am a strong writer, but others may be great painters, or musicians, or photographers, or dancers. Creative expression is all over this world, and sometimes our society tries to keep us so busy that we forget to use our gifts. The hardest part is not letting it. Grabbing a hold of your gift, making time for it, saying I’m going to do this!

The Universe gave us gifts for a reason… to use them!

I mean, I hope to write words that inspires people, and that can help people, heal them, and open their mind and heart. But other times, I just need to write for fun. The fan fiction isn’t going to “help” anyone necessarily, as I aim to try to do. But I love doing it. Writing, reviewing, posting, and seeing reactions of the audience, if any. 🙂

What do you like to do creatively that can be more of a therapeutic part of your day?

And,  here’s just some random fantasy images for you:
