WednesdayWisdoms: Taking it Easy

For all my high achievers out there, I know it is hard to take some time to relax and enjoy yourselves. I know we can’t all go on expensive vacations around the world, but we can at least dedicate a few hours to ourselves out of our week to take it easy.

This week, I want you to pick one day and block off a few hours. Do a mud mask. Take a bath. Workout and then meditate. Watch Orange is the New Black. Any activity you want, but just be sure to dedicate it to yourself, sans interruptions. You deserve to kick back, so carve out the time! It is possible. I promise.

Set out a schedule of your week and see what you can move around to make it happen. Can you do laundry after work one day in order to free up some time on Sunday? Do it. Make time for yourself and structure your week accordingly. Your soul will thank you.

Stay mindful of your own time, and stay witchy ( *)

WednesdayWisdoms: How to Meditate

IMG_5102

 

Welcome to a new segment, witch babes!

Since the My Trending Stories series has come to a close, I decided to implement something very useful for my readers. Welcome to WednesdayWisdoms!

Today I’m going to teach you how to meditate, because it has helped me in incredible ways!

I usually do it from 2-5 minutes a day. It really helps to sit with your back up straight, and to set a timer on your phone so you aren’t focused on how much time is going by.

And from here you just focus on your breath! I try to imagine the air flowing through my nostrils, filling my lungs, and exhaling out of my body. Then I continue the cycle.

If your mind flows in and out of thoughts, don’t beat yourself up! This is why it’s a practice. But every time you feel your thoughts slipping away, return it to your breath. And pretty soon, you’ll find yourself in a calm space away from clutter.

Instead of picking up your phone first thing in the morning, set a timer. Or, instead of watching that last TV show before bed, get meditating to relax. It is super easy to fit in 2-5 minutes, I promise!

The benefits of meditation are vast, and help to cultivate a sense of peace. It creates this space in your brain you can return to when you experience anxiety, fear, depression, etc.

Make it a part of your daily practice and you’ll start seeing a difference in a few weeks.

Stay meditating and stay witchy ( *)

The Green Eyed Monster


Jealousy is tricky. It will pop up when you least expect it, and proceed to torture and consume you. It becomes an obsession.

It is pretty clear, however, that jealousy is just another by-product of insecurity. The “you aren’t good enough” track plays over and over in your head and so you compare yourself to everyone that seems to have what you “don’t.”

Indicated by the reversed position of the Knight of Cups, jealousy comes from acting with emotion over logic, and what is more emotionally controlled than insecurity? This is not a mindful exercise, but rather a learned response to beliefs we have collected throughout our early lives. It has now become a quick draw for whenever that icky insecurity sets in, because it is easier to project outwardly than focus internally.

Now, aside from the obvious problems with this, we also have to understand that the stories that we make up about the people we are jealous of are usually completely untrue. What we see at face value, on Instagram, on Facebook, those are just the versions of us we want people to see. So why wouldn’t that be true of the target of your jealousy?

But lets get a little more specific here and look at jealousy in relationships. Whether you are the jealous one or your partner is, neither is particularly fun to be. While one is running around cherry picking things to get upset about, the other is generally the target of distrust. And you can see here how that will inevitably crumble a union.

Jealousy can be an armor of protection against getting hurt by your partner. Causing a fight over suspicion is easier to do than to trust them. Trust is scary. And when you trust someone who betrays you, it can cause extreme emotional damage.

The Seven of Swords usually indicates betrayal. But what is extremely important to understand is to not let past betrayals get in the way of a new relationship. While you are now wiser than before, and are able to pick up red flags when necessary, you must learn to open your heart fully and trust the other person because you trust YOURSELF. Remember, you can’t paint all the flags red because you are scared. Sometimes a flag is just a flag.

So, bottom line, at the root of all of this jealousy lies insecurity. If this is something you struggle with, I invite you to sit down and make a list. I want you to write down everything that you are in one column, and everything that you are not in another column. I want you to write as close to fifty in each column as you can. And I think you’ll see, as you get further down the list, some of the old beliefs start to get stripped away, and you have to rely on your authentic self for the answers. Stay secure and stay witchy ( *)

Hi Witches!

I’m starting to switch gears a bit here. I’m looking to change up my posting schedule with the addition of my podcast and the new project I’m working on for My Trending Stories. As I have been regularly posting three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, and will continue to do so, I will be adjusting some blog posts to allow myself more freedom to pursue my new projects (and potential clients!)

So looking forward, you’ll be seeing my traditional blog posts appearing on Mondays, an upload of my new project (coming next week!) on My Trending Stories on Wednesdays, and the Podcast appearing in the feed on Saturdays.

So, that being said, I have posted a link to my page with all of the fictional stories on My Trending Stories that I have written so far. Please enjoy and get ready for a new set of writings that I just know you’ll enjoy! Stay witchy ( *)
