In the past six months, I have been reflecting on my schedule. My needs as a woman, a mother, an employee and a writer. I have a a full time job which limits my time and I have realized that as a writer, free time is my most precious commodity.
I have gone through a bit of a rollercoaster in my personal life and my anxiety has been acting up in waves. Mine ressembles a grumpy sea dragon riding the tide to besiege me with guilt, suffocation and fear. In an effort to ward it off, I have learned to go back to the basics, make myself a schedule and rebalance my life.
I have been told that the key to managing my anxiety is through meditative practices. I simply cannot empty my mind. I studied Buddhism in order to try and gain a deeper understanding as well as attended some guided meditation classes. The idea of emptying my mind in itself appears to give me anxiety.
In making my schedule, I realized that that a spiritual dimension was lacking in my life. Similarly to most teenagers, I discovered the Tarot in late grade school. My girls and I enjoyed pulling each other’s cards and playing Ouija on many a preteen Saturday night.
In the past few years, tarot, crystals and semi-precious stones, aromatherapy and other forms of alternative belief systems have been trending once again.
I have decided that my journey towards meditation will be pulling one card a day and reflecting on the message it captures. I will let my intuition lead the way and let go of the anxiety. Breathe in. Breath out. Balance. My mantra for the upcoming year remains be brave.
You are my forever friend too. You inspire me all the damn time! Sending you tons of love & positivity. 🤩🥰🤩
