I treat this podcast episode as a space of semi-guilty confession, and admit to the things I reach for when I’m feeling empty and depleted. I think we all feel empty at times, and sometimes it’s easier to reach for something soothing than it is to just sit with the uncomfortable feelings. But right now I’m trying to do better. This episode is an invitation to join me in the human admittance of this very normal behavior, and to also perhaps try to just sit a bit longer in the discomfort, in order to stretch those spiritual muscles. It’s a practice, and we’re not seeking perfection here! Continue reading WHAT DO YOU REACH FOR WHEN YOU’RE FEELING EMPTY?
Okay, I’m not sure where I’m going to go with this post as of now. But hang in there with me and let’s just see. This post was inspired by a newsletter I read this morning in which a woman named Pamela Kribbe channeled a message from Mother Earth. If you’re not into this kind of thing, you can still get something from this post and this quote. Because this quote was essentially asking us to imagine ourselves floating in a river. And to feel what it feels like to just let go. As if the river represents our world and our life as we currently know it. Continue reading IMAGINE YOURSELF FLOATING IN A RIVER
I’ve gone in circles so many times about this topic. And I’ve written multiple posts about my “journey” with meditation. I have had a very stop and start kind of relationship with this practice, and I’m essentially super half-assed about it. So, in this post, I’m not going to try to come across as some meditation goddess. Because I am so not. And instead, I’m going to do what I do best. Which is tell the truth about how I actually feel. Because if I’m being honest, I hate meditating. I really and truly hate it. But, I do it anyway. And I’m not even sure why. But, I’ll try to explain below. Continue reading I HATE MEDITATING, BUT I DO IT ANYWAY
I recently signed up for an online course on reading tarot cards, and I’m seriously loving it. I mentioned a bit about this in my recent article, “The Things I’m Focusing On Now, Other Than Men.” And this course, along with the other million things I’ve been doing to try to stay sane, has been so helpful in my breakup healing process. It’s helping me to keep busy and it’s getting me excited about new possibilities. Continue reading DO YOU WANT TO HELP ME PRACTICE READING TAROT CARDS?
Loss is loss, and it doesn’t exactly matter what form it takes. And even though I’m surviving the loss of my romantic relationship, one month after he broke up with me, I’m still grieving hard core. And for whatever reason, I have been finding that making beautiful art about the death of my mother is really helping. Perhaps the sadness I’m feeling about losing my ex is bringing up unchecked emotions about the loss of my mother. Or, perhaps I just need a new way to grieve the loss of Mike, and making sad art about my mother is helping move those emotions along. Continue reading MAKING BEAUTIFUL ART ABOUT GRIEF AND LOSS IS REALLY HELPING
In this episode of The Goddess Attainable Podcast, I share a bit about how I’m trying to find a new way to manage my fears and stresses about money and other life things, in the wake of my recent and abrupt breakup. And I give details about a sort of miracle experience with a mop, that I had while I was communicating with The Goddesses. This episode is about making a choice to turn things over (to a power greater than ourselves, in whatever form that takes), when life is just too scary and overwhelming. Continue reading PUTTING MY LIFE IN THE HANDS OF THE GODDESSES, I THINK…
I am a controlling person, an anal-retentive Virgo, and a watered-down hypochondriac. Fearful of many things, I like when everything is in its place. I like when people do what I want them to do. And I don’t like when people do what I don’t want them to do (or don’t do what I want … Continue reading THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION FOR CONTROL FREAKS
Saturday, June 20, 2020 | 9:24-9:33am I was certain that I meditated for a bit longer this morning, but it turns out I meditated for exactly nine minutes again, same as yesterday. Totally okay, good for me! The fact that I lovingly kicked my partner out of the bedroom (he was getting up anyway, so … Continue reading MEDITATION: WEEK 1
My previous post concludes with the mention of some unnecessarily prescribed antibiotics which led to an unfortunate disturbance within my sacral chakra. Please enjoy all of my previous posts from this series before proceeding, or feel free to dive in head first, without map or compass: REIKI, PART I: THE BEGINNING, REIKI, PART II: ROOT … Continue reading REIKI, PART IV: SACRAL CHAKRA HEALING
[DISCLAIMER: In this post, I include a somewhat ghastly photograph of my wounded toe, as this injury is an essential component in my story. I apologize in advance if this is off-putting to anyone. To minimize the horror (it is actually not that bad, but I know some people get upset at the sight of … Continue reading REIKI, PART III: FINAL ROOT HEALING
