Are you tired of me trying to guess what day it is yet? Word off the street is, it’s somewhere near the beginning of the week… time to grab a cuppa caffeination and uh, stay right where you are, I guess?
Are you missing your old routine? Are you missing the little tidbits of normalcy that used to seem trivial, but now seem like a lifeline attached to reality as we knew it? For example, the casual coffee run. I’m even missing getting together with a friend to line up for twenty minutes for boujee coffees that we undoubtedly paid too much for. (Insert a comment about millennials and their priorities here.) In the absence of the daily rituals that fleshed out our former routines and brought a sense of comforting reliability to our world, I would like to suggest the creative invention of something new to temporarily take its place.
Sadly, a lot of coffeeshops are currently closed, and many of us are being forced to reconsider how we are allocating our resources. (And unfortunately those $7 lattes may not necessarily fit into the most sensible daily budget.) But good coffee is good coffee, man. Those cravings are not going to go away. With a little extra time on your hands, why not learn to make your own bomb ass cold brew? You can easily make boujee coffee your way AND save a bunch of money doing so. Better yet, because everything is better with a little magic, you can infuse your custom-crafted libation with an enchantment for an extra kick.
Well here we are, it’s Monday. And that means absolutely nothing because we’re in quarantine and all that’s currently scheduled all week is STAYING THE FUCK HOME! Even in my “normal” work reality, Mondays are usually my Fridays, so my case of the Mondays is usually a happy feeling anyway. But here we are, just another day at the start of another week, with nothing on the books. So I thought, why not create something fun to work through this week? Enter my chakra challenge!
I really enjoyed chatting about chakras the other day and was thinking, we have seven open days this week and seven main chakra points in the body. So why not use each day to focus on giving each chakra a little love? Working from the bottom up, let’s use this time to really get to know ourselves on a deeper level and work through any funkiness we find so that we can meet whatever the heck lies ahead standing strong within ourselves.
I’m reporting to you from day 4 of “shelter in place” in the witch cave. My little slice of life has been full of magic and meditation, but I still can’t help but feel like I’m watching the world fall apart in slow motion around me. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way, so today I felt like touching on a way we can keep ourselves together throughout these trying times.
I am a firm believer that our inner reality becomes our outer reality. When you feel strong and balanced as a whole, you are better equipped to manifest harmony and around you. One super effective way to take stock of what’s going on inside you is by using the chakra system. Although chakras have become a super popular subject, I have noticed in many of my conversations about them that a lot of people still find them a bit far-fetched and mysterious. So I figured now would be a perfect time to explain how this ancient system can have relevance to our lives, and how it just might be the key to keeping your shit together right now.
