Workout Journal 21

Nine days in and I'm doing pretty well with one of my 2019 Tries--stretching and yoga every morning.  Or most mornings anyway.  Gotta get limber!  Especially my right hip, it's so stiff and inflexible, whereas my left hip has always been the limber one. 

Last night, my usual 8th of the month rituals was interrupted when one of my Gods said, "TAROT!"  So I taroted.  Saw an image of Shiva and drew cards that kept repeating a need for a new relationship, build that relationship.  You'll reach your goals. 

This coincides with a dream that I had last week, where I sat in front of Shiva, knee to knee, and He joined His stomach with mine, indicating that He was feeding my will power.  An answer to my prayers, as I had feared of falling back to old habits and not reaching my exercise and dance goals.  So now Shiva is here to help me stay on track and use my will power for good, instead of laziness. 

Since I lack shrine space, I'm on the hunt for a picture of Shiva that I like, that I can print out and hang on my wall.  Perhaps over by my Dance and Healing shrines? 

For now, I've got to go get the baby, and get my mommy on.

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."
