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!
When I think of Summer I think of the ocean and pools and lots of cool beautiful water. So I think it’s only appropriate to dive in and see what the beautiful stone Larimar has to offer. It looks just like the sandy bottom of a beach or the cool blue of a pool and whenever I look at it I feel the peace I get when being by the ocean. It’s hands down my favorite stone!
I love self-help books. I’ve loved reading them since high school when I started my journey into the mind to understand depression and anxiety (since I was starting to experience both and didn’t want my life ruined by them as my father had). I’ve read some wonderful books and some downright awful ones, but this book is in a world all of its own. The Art of Happiness is life-changing and I’m about to tell you why.
Summer in my mind is all about eating healthy, and I know sometimes when the mornings are hot, I want a breakfast that’s not. One thing that is not only nutritious but delicious is this Mermaid Lagoon Smoothie Bowl. It tastes just like a Banana smoothie but is made healthy with the addition of Spirulina and Whey Protein. If you’re wanting to channel your inner Mermaid you MUST try this smoothie!
I’m sure by now you’ve probably heard the benefits of meditation for all kinds of things, and maybe you’ve even tried to meditate, but for one reason or another, it just didn’t work out. Maybe your mind drifted too much, or you got bored. That doesn’t mean meditation is not for you. It just means you need to find a different kind. In this post, I’m going to tell you about all the forms of meditation, as well as how my journey with mediation has evolved.
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!
I find Picasso Jasper to be a really artist stone. I’m not just saying that because of the name either. After making my first Mala with this stone, I just loved how it looked with all the deep colors and it honestly made me feel inspired to get out my old sketchbooks again. But that’s not the only reason this stone is amazing!
Meditation has helped my anxiety and personal growth immensely. I find that I have better days when I meditate, but there are several forms of meditation. The kind that I enjoy the most is using a mantra that is synchronized with my breath. I use mala beads to keep my mind focused on the mantra and not drifting as much. In this post, I’m going to show you in detail what all goes on when I make one, as well as how you can use one.
Originally this post was supposed to be about how I personally prepared for Hurricanes in Florida (because it’s about to become hurricane season) and Blizzards in Massachusetts, but I am currently using these skills to make life a little better during this Pandemic. So, I’m going to share some secrets that I have learned and used so that you don’t have to leave your home as much for groceries.
