Let's make a pact.... February 01 2017 2 Comments
Today is February 1 - This month we have pretty much decided to dedicate it to LOVE and it is evident in a variety of ways:
- Heart-shaped boxes filled with yummy chocolates
- St. Valentines Day
- More couples profess their love in February and get engaged (including yours truly)
- and so on
Hearts are everywhere! In fact, we went out to brunch with my sis and her honey just last weekend and I've never seen a restaurant so decked out for Valentines Day. Hearts were everywhere! From the ceilings, the windows and mirrors. It was very beautiful, but WOW!
I digress, which is fairly easy for me to do at times.
Today, being February 1 and The Month of Love...let's make a pact, you and I.
Let's focus on ourselves! Yes, you read correctly. Focus on SELF first. I've been chatting LOADS with Chamuel lately; you know, The Angel of Self Love. She constantly reminds me to take it easy with a variety of ideas; baths, naps, walks with Gabi, bed earlier (yet to accomplish that one) and reading a book - just for the fun of it. Why?
Because loving yourself first isn't selfish, it's imperative!
Read that again. It IS imperative. Why? Because as you refuel your body, mind and soul, you become more energized. When you are more energized, you have more to give. Play with me for a moment, have you ever notice how many more 'idiots' there are in the world when you are tired? Me too. They aren't idiots at all, and you know this deep down. You, darling, are what is called overtired, tapped out and running on fumes. There simply isn't enough coffee in the world to keep you going and staying in your happy place.
So let's make a pact. Every. single. day. in the month of February you do something for YOU. The list is as long as it is varied. Here are some ideas and I would LOVE to hear of some of yours.
- Bubble Bath
- Say NO and stick to it
- Say YES with glee and mean it
- Hug someone for 30 seconds or longer ~ HEART TO HEART
- Sit with some rose quartz crystals - heart shaped of course ;)
- Place your hands over your heart and say, "I Love You."
- and _________________________ you fill in the blanks
Here's to Self Love! Remember:
Change is often coveted and chatted (and dare I say whined) about daily:
* I wish my life was more abundant
* I wish I had my soulmate
* I wish I was ten pounds lighter
* I wish...
These are all desires of change, right? Right. If that is the case, and it is, why do folks drag and I do mean DRAG in changing circumstances so they can get what is desired?
Do you really expect things to change if you aren't? (Yes, this is one of those things that make me chuckle.) It just simply doesn't work that way. Want more abundance? Look for higher paying jobs or taking a course to help you get there. Want true love? It all starts within first. Want to lose weight? You know the drill; more exercise and better food.
And so on.
I get it, inertia is a wonderful mind numbing thing. I go there too; doesn't It feel more cozy to snuggle up with a great book? Good book vs getting up early to tackling the next task at hand; more course offerings, making memes, blog posts not to mention my domestic goddess duties? Luckily at this exact moment I have the best of both worlds; one cat is snuggled in close while I write so it's a bit of work and love going hand in hand.
Change is inevitable even if you are the Inertia Goddess/God; change is going to happen. How things change and how pro-active you are in its event and how you respond is up to you. You can make it difficult or certainly more joyful.
It comes down to, as most things do, how much do you love yourself in order to activate the changes YOU wish. Chamuel is my go to angel for this; The Angel of Self Love. Remember, the more you love yourself, the more you give yourself permission to ask for what you desire AND receive it. As the other angelic gang members, Chamuel resonates with the crystal Rose Quartz; see my blog from earlier this week on this juicy crystal that is chock full of loving yumminess to kickstart your life in magical ways.
Change isn't always easy and can take a while. However, as the old fable goes, 'Slow and Steady Wins The Race'. Taking one step daily towards your goal will result in the ultimate Big MAGICAL Changes that you yearn for.
Take me for an example, as many of you know we just moved; well Stage One of The Move has been completed. Once again, I did not go gently into this change. I LOVE our beach home (which we are not giving up - so many of you have asked), and going to the 'Big City' was 'eh', in my book. However, our new home has great, great energy. Things we've been carting around for years have already found a great home; it was like that spot was made for 'it'. The new home is surrounded by trees, lots of trees and a gorgeous pond just a few moments of a walk away. Gabi and I have already explored the immediate surroundings and look forward to more as the days begin to cool that allow longer walks. The vision is constantly changing, but I now have officially my own office! This is a first ever! Instead of carting my laptop to whatever spot felt great; there is a designated room getting filled with crystals, sacred objects and tools and you know what? It feels glorious.
I changed and what I expected and allowed myself to receive changed.
I've thanked my husband countless times for finding this beauty and he just beams. I know it is time for me and us to share our gifts in a larger and bigger way and we're ready. In order for that to happen, we needed to get off our island for longer periods of time but in an area that was more populated and yet offered peace.
Change. It's a good thing. Give it a try.
Let's Chat Crystals! August 01 2016
I'm often asked which is the best crystal to start with when a newbie to working with stones?
The answer is an easy one; Rose Quartz
It's very easy, incredibly easy in fact, to find and its very essence makes it less complicated for a person to keep stepping forward on their chosen path. You see, rose quartz is the premier stone of Self Love. The more one loves themselves, the more they allow to ask and receive for what is deeply desired.
If you think about it, it's an epidemic of sorts; ALL could love themselves more. In fact, that is one of my theories of why this beauty, that comes in all shapes, sizes and finishes is so readily available. It's true, you may find raw versions like you see in the photo below. You may find rose quartz in polished versions that include various shapes such as hearts, geometric, etc. Lastly, you may find rose quartz woven into jewelry in its polished or raw state. So it is really up to you and your personal tastes as well as your goal for each piece you obtain. As an example, I have a beautiful bracelet that includes polished rose quartz. Likewise we have 7lb raw chunks throughout our home to keep the love going for all who enter.
Look at these beauties! That soft pink color (also the color of self love) exudes gentleness, softness, and yes love. However, don't under-estimate all the gooey love stuff for weakness! This stone, in its gentleness, is a power house of crystals.
IF you are new to acquiring and working with crystals, I strongly suggest you visit your nearest metaphysical store to pick them out. See which one(s) catch your eye or simply feel good to you. Once you are more comfortable with picking out the right stones for you, you can then venture more safely and securely into ordering online through trusted sources.
Let me know how you love your rose quartz and how you have implemented its energies into your life; it's a great journey once started.
