Crystal of the Week | Calcite

I love collecting crystals (and stones) and have used them collectively during my meditation practice.  One day, I decided to go shopping for another crystal.  I had no idea what I wanted, however, as soon as I walked into the crystal store I allowed spirit to guide me.  I was attracted to this crystal with a honey, golden, hue called Calcite.  Calcite is a powerful energy amplifier.  It clears negative energy while removing stagnant energy.  I was so happy to be attracted to this crystal because I have felt immobile in the past and needed something to help motivate me and stimulate the creative juices within.

More information about Calcite –

  • Can be placed on the Solar Plexus
  • Physically, spiritually, and mentally speeds up growth and development – helping you to reach your divine calling
  • Ease emotional stress and combating fear
  • Although this crystal can help you relax it also stimulates you to move forward
  • Helps attune to the higher mental planes
  • Stimulates mental energy
  • Promotes creativity
  • Can help with channeling, astral traveling, intuition and enhance psychic abilities
  • On a metaphysical level, it encourages mental awareness, bringing the physical mind and will together to help you connect with your higher-self.

What’s In My Cup

12:25 pm// Day 1 for me- Day 3 for the challenge// Started late but I aim to finish restored//My loose tea concoction – hibiscus, turmeric, ginger, green tea, Moroccan mint tea// Sitting in Lotus asana

7:00 a.m.

My body woke up before my alarm today.  I did not sleep well at all.  Perhaps, it was the uncanny dreams or the cramps and lower back pain from my menstrual cycle.  Shower. Breakfast. Antibiotics.  Ugh.  I despise taking these pills, however, I’ve been sick far too long so I had to give in.  As soon as I’m done with them, I’m going to detox my body with activated charcoal and a raw diet.  I don’t know what to do first.  So many thoughts circling my mental and all I can do is just sit here.  That’s my problem.  I think way too much and leave little time to be proactive.  At least I am aware.  Now change that habit Dom!  I aim to accomplish all my goals I set this month during the new moon.  I have to take myself seriously. If I don’t, who will?  I refuse to waste my talents and I refuse to let doubt and fear oppress me any further.  I am molding my future, shaping my destiny and polishing up my faith.  I know that everything I am experiencing all serves a purpose.  I thank you God.  I thank you for this moment of clarity right now.  I know I am one piece of artwork just hidden in a corner waiting to be discovered.  And the only one who can discover me… is me.  It’s time that I stop neglecting my soul.  The fire that burns deep inside of me needs to be released, not hosed down.  I am working on me.  I am working on me.  I am working on my masterpiece.

Thirty to 30: Countdown to my 30th Birthday

2015-12-07 21.23.47

December 6, 2015 was my official 30 day countdown transitioning from my 20’s into my 30’s!

I have been looking forward to my 30’s for some time now, and to be honest, I’m not exactly sure why.  However, I do know that I have been blossoming into a stronger, more spiritual, and loving human being.  There is a shift happening inside of me and it’s steadily leading me to a higher state of awareness.  I have been opening my Third Eye and trying to become a better woman each and every day.

As I say goodbye to my 20’s and hello to my 30’s, I thought of some things I can do to start my celebration.

First – I made a list of almost everything I wanted to do in the past (at least most of what I can remember) but never set time to do.  *I will update my blog on everything I did on my list.

Second – Meditation, prayer, exercise, write, read, etc.  I will focus on everything that I’m grateful for and practice not complaining about anything in my life.  If I find myself complaining, sad, angry or if I feel like my anxiety is kicking in, I will read my daily affirmations.  My focus is to bring harmony and balance, and to become one with my temple, mind, and soul.

Third – No sex for 30 days.  I do have a boyfriend who has been very supportive about my decision. (Shout out to your strength babe.  ‘You the real MVP!’).  I wanted to take the days leading up to my 30th to focus on womb and auric cleansing which I will explain further in a future post.  I want to also use the time to focus my sexual energy on something more creative, spiritual, or both!

Fourth – This will be the beginning (or restart) to a cleaner diet.  I practiced a vegan diet for 40 days earlier this year but, I need to I still feel the need to educate myself more about Veganism.  Over the years, I have gradually cut pork, red meat, refined sugar, processed meats, and other kinds of processed foods out of my diet.  I really don’t want to put a label on my diet.  However, I will make sure that my chicken and eggs are vegetable fed and make sure that my fish is wild caught.  I will also consume more fresh vegetables and fruits and eat meat more sparingly.

Life is so amazing and I look forward to continuing my journey and I pray that God and my ancestors continue to provide me with love and protection.  – Ase

With love,

DS
