WELCOME TO MY
11/12 – 11/18
Well howdy, there! Back to check in after a week of some Anahata love. So that semi-stressful situation I had the week prior worked itself into a much larger stressful situation this week. I had the stressful sick tummy I did! But it’s resolved itself thank god, and I’m feeling much better. And the Anahata work seems to be working and I feel much more calm and loving and kind. So wonderful! However, since it was such a stressful week and I didn’t start feeling the effects of my work til nearer the end of the week, I’m gonna pull a Manipura week 2 and “repeat” this whole week. I need this chakra as strong as possible and I just know that it’s not there yet, but with another week to dust off all the cobwebs, this chakra will be it’s greenest green ever. Or at least, in a much better place than it was before.
Besides that very stressful situation that hung in the back like a haunted shadow, last week was actually fun and productive. I actually did meditation everyday! And if you checked in last week, my reward to myself for meditating everyday was a beginner’s crochet set. And you better believe I got that!! I went to Joann’s Fabrics, where I was highly disappointed with the options available but I ended up with a beginner’s kit that had several fun things in it. I also picked up 4 skeins of yarn. I walked the yarn isles for who knows how long, debating on this or that color, texture, size yarn. So many to choose from! I finally decided on a dark green (because Anahata of course) and a natural heather color I thought paired the best with it. The kit I purchased included a book with 15 projects. I think I’ll tackle the scarf but I’m still not positive about that. I might try the blanket. Go big right? Ha maybe… maybe…
Now for this week though. Is there anything new in store this week? Basically the same as last week? Lots of green color in the wardrobe, food, and stimulating smells and affirmations? Or am I gonna throw in something sneaky and surprising and unbelievably Anahata focused? Oh I don’t know. I may have something sneaky in store. Best check in to find out!
Anahata inspired yoga everyday. 1 yoga class at a studio.
Anahata inspired meditation everyday. Tea meditation 2x.
Clean out closet, get rid of old clothes. Reorganize everything.
Crochet, coloring, Cooking, baking, bath, reading, nail painting, bullet journal. All are on the love craft goal list this week.
I signed up for that beginner student special at Kindness Yoga, and I went 2 of the 4 classes I signed up for. So not great but there was a reason for missing those days, however. I missed Friday and Saturday’s classes. Friday, I just did not have the energy or want to drive 45/50 minutes for an hour long class just to turn around and drive 45/50 minutes back. Mountain living. It’s nice but far from things. And Saturday I was headed to class but got stuck behind the slowest of drivers, with no opportunities to pass and I ended up being too late to take the class. I was so bummed! I was gonna try a semi-hot class. Garrr! This week I have a lot to do and don’t think I’ll be able to make it to a class til the weekend and even then that’s very questionable. So that’s a bummer and why I put going to a studio class only once this week. Didn’t want to set myself up for failure there. I’m also still going to be practicing Anahata inspired yoga everyday and if I have time I’ll be creating my own sequence.
Meditation is more of the same as last week, a find what feels right type of deal. However, I absolutely loved tea meditation and want to do that at least twice this week, maybe more if the mood strikes. Just sipping and reflecting, breathing, quiet, meditative solitude. If the weather is warm enough, I might try to sit outside while I sip as well.
I did a bit of a bedroom rearrange recently. Now it’s time I tackled my closet. I went through it a while ago and have 2 bags to give away that I still need to take to Goodwill. But I went on a bit of a shopping spree so I want to give it another once over to get rid of a few things. I also have a lot of stuff to sort through that I’ve just been tossing into my closet and saying “Eh. Tomorrow. This weekend. Soon.” I’ll be going through all that and tossing what needs to be tossed, putting things away properly. Who knows. It need to be gone through, is all.
I am kind to myself...
Get out of here negative voice! There’s no room for you anymore! It’s all love and kindness this week and every week.
I am willing to release all fears...
Oh so many fears holding me back, dragging me down, wrapping their toxic fingers around me. It’s time to say good fucking riddance to those fears and start living in love.
I find courage in my vulnerability...
Letting go of living in fear opens the door to being vulnerable and raw. But if I can find courage from that place, I can keep tossing any fear aside that may crop up.
The challenges I can foresee this week aren’t much different than last week. What were those again?
Since I’m still working on energizing this chakra, the love may be a little up and down while it strengthens still this week. I’m hoping that it doesn’t sink very low, but the only way to prevent that is to work, work, work on it as best and lovingly as I can.
Now to be fair, my energy wasn’t as low as I was expecting it might get last week. I didn’t pay attention enough to see what the cause for that might have been, but I’m banking on it carrying through for this week as well. I wake up crazy early (I oughtta start taking advantage and working on things in the morning) but I also get tired and go to bed very early. And with the dark early days… I want to go to bed at like 5! Here’s to trying to trying to stay awake into the late evening!
I am so excited for my crochet reward! Can’t wait to try my hand at it! Check out what I have in store for myself.
Zipadeedooda!! I am absolutely in love with the way the numbers rise! Motivation, my friends. That’s motivation right there.
