Oh geeze aw man! I skipped out on watching the video I had planned for today. I had every intention of getting around to it in the afternoon but then I took a nap and everything went out the window when that nap decided it wasn’t finished with me quite yet. Gave me the deep sleepies it did! I just did not have the energy to commit to any sort of class, in any way shape or form this afternoon but I wanted to do something. So I yanked that mat into the middle of my room and did a quick stretch session. Cat/cow, down dog, seated twists and folds, happy baby, and lots of back stuff. I spent about 10-15 minutes maybe, doing this little pre-bed yoga session and it was just the ticket. There was no standing, it was just a lot of easy going, fluid stretches to limber me up before I crawl back into bed. My favorite place of the week!
Today was another fall asleep and absorb “meditation.” I chose just a Healing for Svadhisthana video on Youtube and settled down to begin listening. This video plays for 9 hours. 9 hours! Absolutely perfect amount of time for my sleeping brain to absorb some healing, calming, relaxing, Svadisthana focused music. I nestled my head into my pillow, snuggled up warm under the covers, laid my hands atop my Svadhisthana center and I began to relax. I let go of the day, listened to the sound of the music, and focused on my breathing. One of the things I’m most grateful for is the ability, with few exception, to fall asleep incredibly quickly and to sleep quite soundly. It’s a lovely blessing to me. And I’m sure I’ll be asleep in moments what with the soothing nature of this here healing music. Goodnight and sweet dreams to you all!
Broke out my gradient style multi-colored mandala print leggings. Pink, purple, blue, red, orange. It’s got a myriad of colors, but most importantly, that lovely orange. And truly best of all, that orange is only at the top of the leggings, which ride a little high and sit right at, you guessed it, my sacral chakra. How freaking fitting is that! I tell ya, I’m loving how things have been just working out so nicely like that recently. All those funky fun coincidences! I wore my orangey-pink Puerto Vallarta shirt. Salmon, maybe, some would call it. It’s orange enough! It’s all I have!!
I’ve been carrying that gorgeously bright and energizing sweet orange essential oil around but I decided to bring along my ylang ylang as well. I’m slightly on the fence about that one. I really like it, it’s got a unique and pleasing scent to it. But then every once in a while, for some reason, only for a second, it changes just a bit and it reminds of those bathrooms at campgrounds. You know the ones. Oh man. That’s a stink that’s hard to handle. And ylang ylang is just slightly reminiscent of that. Just for a second. Only once in a while. But I think I can take that.
So today I was thinking again on chakra animals and I tell you, I don’t know what this brain is sometimes. Why it doesn’t see the obvious signs right in front of it, even when those signs are putting themselves on my body. For the love of all that is oranssi (that’s orange in Finnish), the fucking fox is in a 3-way tie for my favorite animal!! Holy criminetly, what is wrong with me. Foxes are incredibly playful, they’re very social, smart, and cunning animals. They like the water, they love family, they’re incredibly flexible (what they eat, where they live, when they’re active). Anyway, maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think so. I think that little foxy-loxy chakra animal guide what-have-you was giving me a sign. A slap on the face sign. And I ignored it!! Ha! Typical.
Jeazy freaking Creazy!! What is in the air, the water, the food, the pills? Something is giving me the tireds this week deep deep down inside of me and I tell you I can not shake it! It was so bad I even took a nap today and I so very rarely take naps. I enjoy them enough, sure, but they’re really just not my jam I guess. A special occasion jam, if you will. Anyway, I passed out late afternoon, woke up around 5, felt no better at all, but grabbed a tasty bite to eat (blt and sweet potato fries. Hello beautiful energizing chakra potatoes! Also those watery tomatoes are probably pretty decent for it as well) before heading back to my bed region to listen to interesting facts and watch cooking shows on youtube before doing a quick pre-bed yoga session and tossing that meditation music on to dream sweet creative dreams to.
