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.
Lapis Lazuli is a gorgeous blue stone with a lot of wonderful properties. Considering I’m giving away a mala necklace that features this stone I thought it would be good to go over some of the cool facts and metaphysical properties that this stone is believed to poses.
This Covid_19 Pandemic has got us all stuck in the house and it’s times like now where there’s a tendency to get a bit scared and soul searchy. If you have found that you’re in this place and looking for something to watch that might soothe your fears a bit, I highly suggest reading on.
Classically the birthstone for April is Diamond (lucky!), this goes back to the ancient Ayurvedic traditions. However, Clear Quartz is also considered a great alternative. I wanted to look more at clear quartz in this post because it’s also the featured crystal in the mala I’m giving away this month! So if you’re looking to learn more about the Mala you’re wanting to win this post is for you!
Truthfully, I had something completely different planned to write about today. I often plan topics a year in advance and change things up once the day gets near. Today was supposed to be about a St. Patrick’s day mixed drink, but I wasn’t expecting that the entire world would be battling a really bad virus.
Just because we’re being asked (or in some cases told) to either work from home or isolate doesn’t mean that it has to be horrible. Considering I naturally enjoy my time at home, I’m going to share with you how this has affected me as well as some great tips to keep your mind and body (and even social life) alive. Hopefully, you’ll look back on this time as a moment you were able to grow as a person rather than wasting it just playing games or watching TV.
