WELCOME TO MY
09/10 – 09/14
Back again to start a new week! Svadhisthana chakra is over with and what a fun, joyful, long learning experience it’s been! Like the root chakra and the sinus infection, there were times this past week I noticed myself much more emotional, more lonely and wanting to connect, than normal and I want to chalk it up to maybe this chakra was a little overstimulated. It makes sense, a week a only focusing on one chakra is really gonna send that one into hyperdrive. Now, I do blame some of those emotions on being tired and recovering from that infection, and I think I’m pre-menstrual hormonal as well, which of course causes me to be emotional. So it’s hard to say what was the root cause of it, but it’s still something to take note of. I had a rousing good time last week but I was taking note of the things I wasn’t doing, things I could improve on, things to add, take away, etc., etc. I’ll delve more deeply into that in a bit. But first…
It’s the start of the solar plexus chakra. Manipura! I am mother-fleeeeeeping beyond excited for this chakra and the main reason is yellow. Yellow is my absolute favorite color guys. I love it like no other. And while I loved the sacral chakra, still think it’s my favorite chakra (I think I’m a sacral chakra person. Definitely not root. But we’ll see. Still have solar plexus to try on for size and the other chakras as their weeks come up.), yellow. I love it. I love it. I love it. It’s happiness and it’s warmth and it’s brightness and love and sunshine and joy and *rraaaaahhh* I love it. Strangely enough, I don’t own as much yellow clothes as you would think I might. Own more than red and orange, but still. Not as much. Well now listen, you may be saying, if you don’t own red, orange, or yellow, what the crap do you own?! Pink. Blue. Black. A lot of that. Anywhoozles though, back to that stunning yellow fire chakra. That chakra that stimulates your self-esteem and is the seat of your personal power and assertiveness. What am I going to be doing to ignite that inner fire this week? What are my plans?
Solar plexus chakra videos, 2 self led/created practices
Solar plexus focused meditation everyday. 2 self led meditations.
I’m feeling the need to rearrange. I’m going to organize my space better. I’m also going to dividing and timing my time out, to more efficiently work.
I think you know what it’s gonna be. Oils, art, reading, you name it, but it will revolve around the solar plexus chakra. Tibetan 5 rites, more ayurveda, and herbalism.
This week will follow much the same as the past two weeks. Last week went well, but there are still some things I need to tweak to make the machine of me run more smoothly and efficiently. I’m still wasting a good portion of time when I get home after work, just unwinding and relaxing. And it builds up over the course of the week til I’m left scrambling the whole weekend trying to catch up, and failing. On Sunday I tried a little experiment where I set a timer for each activity I needed/wanted to do and when that timer went off I moved to the next thing. I’m going to be implementing that this week because I really need to get a good groove going with my time.
Yoga and meditation will be roughly the same, only one less self-led practice for yoga. I thought three was the magic number but no, I think 2 may be the one for now. Love crafts will be much the same as well, focused on essential oils, colors, connecting, reading, learning, absorbing, implementing. All that jazz and nonsense.
I started teh Tibetan 5 rites last week, and did several days but missed about 3 days in a row. So Instead of moving up to 5 times, I’ll be sticking at 3 for the next few days, as they recommend. I also started the herbalism and ayurveda courses and want to continue expanding my knowledge in these fields of interest.
As of right now I have no workspace. I sit on the floor, my bed, the couch, wherever really but I always end up hunched over, poorly positioned, shoulders scrunched up. It’s absolutely killing my neck and shoulders. In fact I may need to get a massage soon because of this. My solution to this involves rearranging. My friend tells me I rearrange too much, but what does she know. I enjoy switching things up more frequently than some I guess. It’s time for it again, time to utilize all my spaces better. I need to be able to fit a desk or table or something in to be my workspace. And the only way to do that is to get my body in motion, get creative and figure out a workable, livable solution.
I am worthy of love, kindness, and respect...
I know this chakra needs work. I know I will need this affirmation this week. I am worthy of all the love, kindness, and respect in the whole world. And so are all you gorgeous individuals.
I choose the best for myself...
In all aspects of my life. Nutrition, health, self-care, relationships, clothes, hairstyles, all of it. I choose the best for myself.
The Bija mantra for the solar plexus chakra. I’ll try to toss this one in whenever I think about it, but especially in my downtimes, when I’m just chilling not doing much of anything.
I’m my biggest challange, and I think I will always be. This week though, I have high hopes that I can make it through the week with few hiccups. Especially if I really knuckle down and put that timer to effective use.
I have a lot of projects I’m interested in, but not only that, I am behind with a few blog posts, so trying to get everything finished before the end of the week, setting appropriate amounts of time for each item to be completed, and not goofing off will be a challenge indeed.
I love to sabotage myself. I love to procrastinate. I love to ignore. I love to forget. Maybe I don’t love these things, but I do them and breaking the bad me habits has been hard and it is by no means over. Little by little I improve, until one day those bad habits will be nothing but a distant memory.
October. It’s already snowed and the weather is getting steadily chillier. Will my rewards warm me up?
Zipadeedooda!! I am absolutely in love with the way the numbers rise! Motivation, my friends. That’s motivation right there.
