Workout Journal 20: Dancing All Day!

Today was a day of me forgetting the new plan!  But I've been exercising a lot today, mostly working on dancing drills.  I also started messing around with my costume and did some hip work with my red coin belt.  It's too small to wrap it comfortably, but I did buy two red scarves from the Dollar Tree that a friend of mine is going to sew it all together and make it fatty friendly!  I can't wait.  I'm going to wear that belt every time I drill and workout and everything.

I also have a black and gold coin hip scarf, too, that I may alter.

Looking at another gift from my friend--who used to belly dance and gave me a red headpiece--a long black shimmery table cloth.  I wanted to turn it into a triangular hip scarf, but it's large enough to be a veil. 

I just finished working with it, with one of Leilah Isaac's videos.  I even started on turns and spins!  In which my middle son wanted to dance with me, with his blankie, so I had to stop the spins because there wasn't enough room, but it was still fun.

So far I have a red and silver costume for the Nymphs, and a black and gold costume for Medusa and the Dark Moon.  I hope to make a blue one for Poseidon and other colors for other Deities.  I see orange and white in the future...probably not together though, but for specific rituals.

The red and silver I may move for general, because I love this blog theme's color scheme and I'd love to put together a costume for the Nymphs with these colors.

Valuable Gemstones Vs Semi-Precious Gemstones - What is the Difference?

Customarily, the contrast between valuable gemstones and semi-valuable gemstones relied upon the diamonds qualities and its arrangement. Jewels that were uncommon and not effectively available to the majority were considered, 'valuable', to a limited extent since they were hardly known outside of the authorities who searched them out. The worth, in addition to restrictiveness of these gems is the thing that made them exceptionally wanted. The favored individuals who enhanced themselves in valuable pearls in past occasions were the blue-bloods who had the option to manage the cost of such extravagances. Interestingly, semi-valuable gemstones were known more for being natural or having mending properties as opposed to for their worth.

Valuable Gemstones

Initially, the initial five valuable pearls were jewels (obviously), emeralds, rubies, sapphires and amethysts (which were later renamed in light of the fact that they were too regular to be in any way thought to be valuable sub…

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.  …

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."
