Dancer Pose

Standard

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,

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

Simple Moments are Life

Standard

Can Simple Moments be what our life is made for? 

Breathe in.

Does our soul actually crave the Simple Moments in life?

We are trained so hard in our society to exist, in many ways, contrary to our natural state. 

Think about that statement for a minute.

  • We are trained to go-go-go instead of sit in the Moment in Peace.
  • We are trained to think Money is the Master.
  • We are not trained to appreciate Art in terms of hierarchy of money and class.
  • We are trained to think we’re no good if we aren’t accomplishing something.

This list can go on for a very long time.

When I speak of society, I speak mainly of my experience growing up in the Southern US. But I am willing to bet we are not the only ones brought up in these manners of deciding what is important.

What if our nature IS PEACE? LIGHT? ARTISTIC? RESTFUL? Just a few examples.

october 216.JPG

Savannah River in Augusta, GA – my hometown. I really miss it being landlocked like I am now.

Why would we be trained to go AGAINST our nature? We can question why those in control of our society would want us to be against our true nature. If we’re peaceful, we won’t create wars. Those in control like chaos. If we humans believe money shows the value of our worth, then stuff becomes important, high paying but perhaps meaningless jobs becomes important to attain and… we become blinded. Blinded to what’s important (spirit) and blinded to what “they” (those in control) don’t want us to see. Perhaps that we are all light, spirit, and so powerful that we are limitless? They don’t want us to know that.

Honestly, I wasn’t going to get into all the political conspiracies out there of what is really going on in our society and who is in control. I’m a New-Age believer, so a few googles of the Illuminate or David Icke or the like can let you on to those paths of inner-thinkings. It’s not for me to tell you exactly what to believe, but to question – why is it like this, and how can I change it?

You can change yourself (with effort, dedication, work, and being easy on yourself). 

Now what this blog post was SUPPOSED to delve into first was – Simple Moments. (Did I get side tracked?)

The fact that those simple moments between your go-go-go life where you aren’t thinking about work, or what you’re going to do next, or what you’re going to eat next or blah blah blah… you’re saying to yourself, “Wow, the sky looks beautiful today, actually.” Or, you aren’t thinking anything, just enjoying a few moments of cuddling with your loved one.

That last one is me, a lot. I am an extremely goal-oriented person. I want to succeed. I want to be good at my job and my goals. (I’m not always good at them but gosh I try.) I have to do this and that – making lists in my head as I go so I don’t forget what needs to be done. Go-go-go.

I don’t break away from that easily.

Except on vacations. Or small moments, the ones I’m talking about, when I perhaps cuddle with my husband. My mind will tell me that I don’t have time for that. That I have to go do this, do that. Type. Prepare to go to work. Whatever the case may be. But sometimes I just tell that part of my mind to shut the hell up and let me cuddle and enjoy the moment.

It’s hard to listen to your own advice sometimes, and for me, learning to enjoy these simple moments is truly a working progress. I have to really work at letting myself enjoy some simple things, like really enjoy that sip of coffee instead of always doing something else running around while I’m drinking that coffee. It’s small reminders – oh yes, take a sip, taste that? Isn’t it good? Isn’t this what you’re here to experience?

This picture taken on our first anniversary where we went to the same places we did on our first date – Inman Perk Coffee Shop! Enjoy that coffee 😉 

Life. (Life is coffee?!)

We go-go-go, because we’re trained to be that way, it’s ingrained in us, we think we must be accomplishing something or we’re worthless. However, what if we cultivated a different way of thinking? (I’m not saying I support the lazing-on-the-couch-while-your-parents-pay-the-rent generation that some have fallen into. That’s another discussion completely.) If you enjoy this moment in time, whether you are accomplishing something or not, maybe it is an important moment. 

I’m just saying, soul-level, you are worth so much. God/Spirit/Creator will not be disappointed in you, whether you accomplish your goals or not, but in how gentle your spirit is, and how hard you try to be a good person.

Why are we in the flesh? That’s a good question with multiple broad answers. But I bet one of them is to experience simple, enjoyable activities, such as celebrating Christmas with family, and birthdays with friends, and the feel of the water against your toes, and the smell of flowers that fairies have surely grown.

october 253

My friend and me in 2011, those years ago when we lived near each other, enjoying a simple moment 😀 And having lots of fun!

This post is getting long. I really need to write a book.

I have much to say, but I’ll let you contemplate the thoughts I have shared, all my own opinions. Do you have any insight/ input? Think I’m wrong? Isn’t it super hard to enjoy those simple moments? Do you struggle with it or find it easy? Could you incorporate it into your daily practice?

I’ll stop spouting out questions to you. 😀

Namaste with Love,

Wonderful World

Standard

 

Maybe not everything that happens to us is “Wonderful.”

But maybe it was originally MEANT to be Wonderful, when we were first created by the Great Spirit, our Creator. Yes, I assume we were meant to learn and grow, (and that’s not always easy) and observe and appreciate the wonders of the world.

But somewhere, someplace, there is also a space for us to just bask in the joy and beauty that is meant for us souls. Maybe it’s not Earth, although this planet could one day be meant for this.

I know there’s a place of relaxation that awaits us after this life, if only we choose to travel there for awhile.

🙂

Here’s my cover of “What a Wonderful World” I sang three years ago!

 

Bet you didn’t know I could sing 😉

Music with Vocal Emphasis minor in College.

Miss those singing days ❤

 

Namaste with Love,

Hope your day is filled with Peace,

(And I hope everyone enjoyed Mother’s Day )

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,

Dance ~ a poem

Standard
The Creator made all
this universe inhale life
and sat back to watch it play.
 
Now who pulls at the painful
strings to tug the Earth
to this unwanted dance?
 
~Celestial K.
Celestialk.weebly.com
earth dancingThis little poem says a lot.
I think of how this planet is so beautiful and has potential for such joy. But the way our lives are run have great flaws, and so everything can’t be the best it can be.
I am not deep into politics, and I don’t have ideas of how to fix government. I would, however, vouch for finding out who all, with war-ful hearts, are causing the injustice, un-peace,  dissatisfaction, and unfairness in our world, and then replace them with people who care about:
1) The planet Earth and keeping her healthy and happy and
2) The people and animals who inhabit the planet, and making sure we are also healthy and happy.
Different countries (and states) also run in different manners. But one that perhaps can relate is money. Through my involvement in New Age, I’ve listened to speakers and writers w ho have done the research and are convinced there is enough money in this whole world for everyone to have some and no one to go hungry. BUT the people with the power want the money, and don’t want to give it away. Do your own research and think what you will, but this is what I believe.
Despite all of that, I still think that most people are over-worked and underpaid. I say this through my personal experience and what I observe. We spend most of our lives working, and we absolutely must work to pay bills (unless you inherit money or are married to someone with money or something of that nature). And we work so much, often we forget that the most PRECIOUS thing we have on this planet is TIME with people we love! 
In my life, although  I completely love my careers now and the work that I do, I’m finding I’m not spending time at home and with my husband like I want. Especially my nights and weekends are taken away, because I work managing events, and many events are on nights and weekends! I do not want to complain, I just want more time with my husband and more time at home, and that’s something personal that I’m going to have to work through by projecting what I want for the future. That’s another good thing about creating your own reality… you find what you want and what you don’t want through experience, and then you have to take steps to change it. In my case, I’m not sure how I am going to create time for myself and my husband, but cosmically, what is supposed to happen will happen once I start creating the thoughts.
This is getting me into the topic of creating my own reality, which I should save for another day. If you have an interest in that topic, you can ask me about it, and/or I would strongly recommend the book: Ask and It is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther and Jerry Hicks. 
That all being said, there are MANY positive changes that Mother Earth needs to go through, and our lives needs to go through! But it has to start with us. Praying (like projecting your desires) is a power that we all have. If you want positive change in this world to take place with our leaders, our planet’s health, saving our animals, making a more fair work system or health insurance system or anything else you can think of… please pray with me on it. Project positive into the future.
Namaste!!
