Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and while the pandemic here in the United States rages on, I wanted to take a moment to reflect and also to thank those of you who have been following this blog and bought things from me. I don’t think you know how much that means to me, so in this post, I’ll be telling you not only why I started this blog, but also what it means to have your support.
Thanksgiving this year can be a bit difficult. 2020 was full of things that we didn’t really want, so it’s understandable if finding things to be thankful for is coming at a premium. However, no matter how negative things are, there are always things to be thankful for, and the Crystal Malachite is perfect if you’re trying to find what those things are to you.
Growing up in a really strict Christian home I was always taught that tarot was a tool of the Devil. However, I really started to learn more about it ironically when I started therapy. I started to also learn about the history of why Tarot is considered to be evil rather than helpful and I found that it has less to do with the spiritual world and more to do with how we think and see ourselves.
October is my birth month, so of course, I grew up getting opals. I always thought of them as pearly white with little flecks of color. Then I learned about the Australian Fire Opal which was way more my style with bright flashes of color. Then, last month, I learned about the Black Opal which is similar to the fire opal but with a black background that makes me think of nebulas floating in space. It’s a GORGEOUS crystal. The truth is though, it has it’s own metaphysical properties which I had no idea about, so I’m going to share them with you.
To be honest, Carnelian was not my favorite crystal. Slowly though, over time it’s grown on me. I’ve come to really appreciate it’s reddish-orange color and then once I started learning about its metaphysical properties, I started to like it even more. This is also the natural birthstone for those born from August 22 to September 22, so if your birthday falls in that range be sure to read on!
Therapy and the idea of going to therapy is a lot more commonplace and a lot less stigmatized than it used to be. Everyone from Carrie Bradshaw to the Kardashians has a therapist they march to whenever life gets crazy. But what happens when you’ve been seeing your therapist for a while? Is there life after therapy or do you just stay there forever? I’ve recently started on my journey of life after therapy and I wanted to talk a little about what therapy is, what it isn’t, and what life after looks like.
What’s a blogger? Oh, no one reads articles anymore. Don’t you want a “real” job? I’ve heard it all and yet here I am writing another article for all of you to read. Do I feel guilty that I’m not “working”? No, Blogging is a very real, and very intense job that requires a lot of energy to do a lot of different things. If you want to be a blogger and get an honest idea of what that looks like at year two, or if you are a blogger looking for validation that this is a real job this job is also for you.
Every month, I try to feature a new crystal. Usually, I feature crystals that I have in Mala form, but today I think I just want to focus on some really awesome unique crystals that you might want to add to your collection (even if you don’t believe in the metaphysical properties). So the featured stone I want to talk about today is Green Fluorite and if you work a lot in front of computers this is a great crystal to have nearby!
We have been spending LOTS of time at home, and that has affected people in different ways. In today’s post, I’m going to talk a little about how the home is a reflection of our own psychology as well as talk about a really awesome book I’ve read recently called “The House Witch” by Arin Murphy-Hiscock. If you’ve found your time at home tainted or downright awful because you’ve been stuck in it for so long, this post is FOR YOU!
Hey everyone! Can you honestly believe it’s been six months since the beginning of the year? Who knew that it could be so weird and crazy! I still have my goals and some are working, and some aren’t. As we settle into a new normal, I’m hoping that if you’re struggling with your new year resolutions this post will help you know you’re not alone and there’s still time to make good on what you wished for yourself.
