REIKI, PART IV: SACRAL CHAKRA HEALING

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

REIKI, PART III: FINAL ROOT 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

REIKI, PART II: ROOT CHAKRA HEALING

This post begins where I left off in REIKI, PART I: THE BEGINNING. At the end of PART I, after having received a Reiki attunement in January of 2016, I experienced several transformations through the spring, summer, and fall months of the year. My deep and disturbing root chakra healing began in December, which is… Continue reading REIKI, PART II: ROOT CHAKRA HEALING

REIKI, PART I: THE BEGINNING

[If you are unfamiliar with the term “Reiki,” I suggest you do just a bit of google research on this topic, so you have a general idea. I will not be getting into what Reiki is exactly, and you might be confused or have lots of questions about it, which might distract you from everything… Continue reading REIKI, PART I: THE BEGINNING

MOTHER’S DAY SANS MOTHER

My mother passed away on December 20, 2017 (about 4 ½ months ago), and this Sunday, May 13, 2018, will be my first Mother’s Day without her. For this holiday, my sister and I plan to return to Delaware, where she lived the final years of her life, in an effort to continue our healing… Continue reading MOTHER’S DAY SANS MOTHER

SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA HEALING

I always feel weird when I see the color yellow. I don’t hate the color, but it just seems a bit much for me, a little too intense. Sometimes, I will see someone wearing yellow and think to myself, “Oh wow, that’s a great color on her, but I don't think I could pull that… Continue reading SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA HEALING

ART AND HEALING

I do not particularly enjoy making art, with the exception of one medium. Photography is the only artistic process that I truly relish. I received my degree in photography, back in the early 2000’s when everything was done in a dark room with intensely toxic chemicals, and this newfangled digital photography thing was just emerging.… Continue reading ART AND HEALING

FIVE-MINUTE MORNING YOGA

I have written about yoga before (YOGA AND EMOTIONS), and have mentioned this topic in several of my other posts. I am well aware that this is kind of an overdone, well-covered, deeply examined subject for many modern-day human beings. Who needs one more article about yoga? However, I am going to write about it… Continue reading FIVE-MINUTE MORNING YOGA

HEART CHAKRA

I have been focusing a lot on my heart chakra lately. I do not know why, but it is almost like IT has been drawing ME, to it. I believe very deeply in the importance of the health of the heart chakra, and that many ailments and/or illnesses in this area of the body (heart,… Continue reading HEART CHAKRA

CRYSTAL MYTHS

In one of my earlier posts about Palo Santo, I gave a shout out to my awesome yoga instructor/insanely addictive-ly amazing crystal jewelry-maker, and I’ve been thinking about doing a post on crystals ever since. I will preface this post by saying that I am SO not an authority on crystals, so in this post… Continue reading CRYSTAL MYTHS
