Nearly two years have passed since I first wrote about my idea to experiment with manifestation. I told you I would give it an honest try and see what happened, and I sure did, so I’m circling back to give you the juicy tidbits I learned along the way.
Two solid years without a date isn’t typically regarded as a celebratory occasion. While today’s women aren’t exactly facing the same societal pressures to get married as urgently as in the 1950’s, we haven’t exactly shaken the assumption that being single makes you sad or somehow incomplete. It’s hardly thought of something to be proud of. Until now! I’m here to confidently let you know that taking time to fall deeply in love with yourself is the absolute shit. That’s right, it’s time to spill the full tea on my dating detox / hookup hiatus / conscious celibacy / man cleanse / best two years of my life so far!
Did you miss me?
If you did, I’m happy I found you again. If you didn’t, I’m happy you were okay with me taking some time to be with myself.
Hi!!! How’s everyone feeling right now after that big major moon??? I heard it was intense for a lot of people — myself very much included! Sometimes I get caught up in the intensity of life and stress and I forget something really important. So here I am writing this to remind myself, and you. It is a gift to be on this earth with the ability to create. Every day is an opportunity to create! The act of living is an act of creation! In case you forgot, you are the artist, you are the magician, and your magical creation is the life you live every day!
We are lucky to be able to do anything at all. Just having the ability to contribute love and beauty to the world is a gift. You are creating just by being. And anything else you do on top of that is bonus points!
So believe in yourself, believe in your ability to be the artist of your life and know in your heart you are doing the best you can every day.
Say it with me: I BELIEVE IN ME!
Who’s afraid of the big bad super blood wolf moon? Not us! The name might sound menacing, but all it means is that the first full moon of the year is featuring a lunar eclipse! This Sunday, the Leo full moon will appear closer and larger than usual. Eclipses are said to be catalysts for change, and this one will be no exception; astrologers have been warning us about the life changing aspects of this phenomenon for weeks! Read on for more information on how to harness the Big Moon Energy for good.
As a Pisces with a Cancer moon I feel highly qualified to tell you about being sensitive. Are you a sensitive person too? Are you always in your feels? It’s not always easy being someone who feels their feelings so intensely. Being super in touch with your emotions can sometimes make your everyday life a bit taxing, am I right? Let’s talk about how we can navigate this.
A new moon crossed the sky on Monday, and here we are in a sort of cosmic grey area for those of us who like to take into consideration its phases. It is said that the three days before and after new and full moons are still brimming with the phase’s energy. But where is the best place to cast our focus in this particular time – just after the new moon?
Is there something following you around? I’m not talking about your shadow or your adorable cat, I’m talking about that baggage, girl. Have you ever had something occupy your thoughts and cloud your mood even when you’re totally removed from the situation for the time being? If you’ve faced a sad situation that’s making you bummed way after the fact, or a stressful situation you can’t seem to shake even after you’ve left, or if you just need help feeling positive right now, hear me out! There’s one simple way you can look at little moments that will spill over to brightening up your whole life. It’s a bite-size present moment meditation available to go, and it goes like this:
I spend a lot of time by myself and sometimes thoughts come to me out of nowhere. They just appear and they start to make a lot of sense. I think of them as messages. One came to me the other day:
“The universe breathes through you.”
Spiritual pep talk time! Logging into this blog just now felt like busting open a REALLY creaky door in the middle of the night, probably waking up a roommate. (Am I still welcome here?!?) I’m ashamed to say I nearly abandoned this magical place!
I have a confession to make. I’m not a witch for a living (although I hope someday to cast a spell that pays the bills). I have a full time day job and a dog just like you. For a time I really just let my life get in the way of, uh, well, my life. Has this ever happened to you?
