Reflect & Rise!

Since tis nearly the season of spring, I figured that I'd ask a Flora Goddess about planning and preparation, and Ariadne gave me two cards--Nettle and Samphire. Nettle was about learning from your past pains and letting them empower you. Showing you that you're stronger--give you strength for the future. Artist Kat Shaw's ...And Still I Rise Project came to mind. Then Ariadne told me told to "draw again" and I got Samphire--Adventure. She could've very well had me draw cards that literally mean planning and preparation, but She went a different route. Healing the past, drawing strength from your pains, for a good future. "No mud, no lotus", one of my favorite healing mantras. From our mud and underworlds, with preparation and planning, we shall rise to greet the sky, beautiful and free!

I love that I drew this card, "You Were Born to Shine."



Woohoo! Finally getting muscle definition in my legs and arms again. And new development, muscle definition in my upper back, too. I'm also up to 20 squats with no lower back pain. Progress! 
Also I went to eat another candy that I used to love--gummi worms--and it both smelled and tasted like playdoh, with a cherry after taste. I used to like the brand, too. Thankfully, not anymore. Another food that I will not be craving! Which is fine since some gummi makers also add gluten, which I shouldn't be eating anyway. <3

Dramatic Mental Healing

As of this month, when everyone goes to bed, I strip down to either complete nudity or just topless.  For so long I haven't really been able to just be nude with myself.  For too long clothes have covered up everything.  Tight and restricting.  Reminding me of the fat.  Negative fat.  Painful and sweaty.  Hot and rashy.  Constricting.  Just for too long. 

Off with the clothes!  Let me see my skin and body again!  And you know what?  It's really been helping me.  Freeing. 

This evening, I'm just topless, and I can feel Minoan energy around me--I can feel the Minoan Snake Goddess and Ariadne in my home, flowing through me.  I know other cultures have topless women and goddesses, but this is specific Minoan energy. 

I did a bit of belly dancing, mostly just the shimmies and the stretches--back is still healing, you know, I can't go HAM yet.  Still working on my flexibility and back strengthening. 

For a while I was ashamed and embarrassed about my body, but back-to-back preg…

2020 Self Love Project

Long time, no post, eh?  I'm back, with a new attitude.  I sprained my back in September, vomiting from food poison.  I didn't like not being mobile.  It taught me to not take my mobility for granted, which I didn't realize that I was doing until I wasn't able to dance.

This year's been full of trials concerning my health.  In the beginning, I was hopeful.  Then I wasn't so hopeful.  Then I was back to self loathing.  I had gained a lot of weight back because I wasn't sticking to my diet or able to go to the park as often to jalk.  After my sprained my back and had to go to the ER for back spasms and learn that I couldn't get actual pain killers that did anything, THEN fight with my insurance to do their job, I was going to the park for short walks, but it wasn't enough.

I couldn't lay down on the floor for my usual leg and core exercises.  I couldn't really do squats.  I was limited to upper body and walking.  Some low impact belly dancing.  …
