Hello my baby loves,
As some of you may know, I’ve been on quite the soul journey lately. It all started with feelings of hopelessness and inadequacy, but soon snowballed into utter joy and bliss. I have always been aware of the importance of self-care, and in the past, I would spend my evenings in lovely-scented baths, with slathered on face masks in attempts to take care of myself. Don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE doing those things, but after almost 25 years of taking care of my body, I (freaking) finally grasped the concept of taking care of my mind and soul. I wasn’t quite sure of where to start, but my mind nudged me into the library where I found various books on energies, chakras, and practices. I’ve also been blessed with an incredible soul sister that sent me this book when I needed it the most (namaste, soul sister).
It’s so easy to disregard anything that hasn’t been shoved down your throat your entire life, but it’s so much better to be open and curious about what lies beyond the familiar. Cosmic energy has always seemed like a hippy-dippy concept to me, something that I could never relate to. Guided meditations have been an awesome tool for dealing with my anxiety in the past, but my closed-mindedness never allowed me to take in the full wonder of what they could do for me.
Along with reading books, I started making time in my day for daily meditation. If you haven’t meditated before, I can tell you that it’s kind of hard to get into a solid habit of it. My thoughts are always speeding at 100 miles per hour, and meditation has taught me how to recognize them and let them go. My patience and skills have grown with each day, and I can now finally ground myself and look deep within. This, my pals, is where I found the most joyful happiness I’ve ever experienced. It has never been about what other people’s views or opinions, nor has it been about external circumstances. I wish I had always known that my joy is always at my disposal. Perhaps a shift of consciousness and an emphasis on gratitude were all I really needed to find my bliss. And even now, I’m only at the start of this soul journey, and I’m buzzing to see what else comes of it.
I’m so excited to share more with you soon!
