Crystal of the Month: Carnelian

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!

Living Life After Therapy

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.

Home Psychology and the House Witch

We have been spending LOTS of time at home, and that has affected people in different ways.

My thoughts on the LGBTQ Community and the Provincetown PRIDE festival with a video!

If you want to learn how a closed-minded, self-righteous cow learned how to be nice to people because of LGBTQ people being nice to her, then please continue reading. 🙂 If you came here for the video, then scroll to the bottom.

I am a woman. I am straight. I am married. I was raised with a belief system that at times I feel like I’ve abandoned and other times I feel closer to…Perhaps I should start from the beginning.

Your Name and What it Really Means

Happy April Fools! April fools is all about people playing tricks on others, pranking others, and getting people to believe something different than their actual reality. This post is all about that and how people use your “names” to make you believe something about you that may not even be true! There are all kinds of legends and even spiritual references about how powerful a person’s name is. Hayao Miyazaki (the Japanese Walt Disney) said “The act of depriving (a person) of one’s name is not just changing how one (person) calls the other. It is a way to rule the other (person) completely.” and this is showing in his movie Spirited Away when the evil Yubaba takes the main character Chihiro’s name away enslaving her in a bathhouse (this is one of my favorite films). We’re going to be going over the power and meaning behind your name, and the ways others have tried to take that away and enslave you with a new identity.
