Spirituality

10 of my favorite feelings

From my ❤ to your ❤, huge thanks to https://coronadayslockdown.wordpress.com/author/writeruniquesoul/ 

I love it when the Universe creates a moment to snap me out of a self destructive pattern like overthinking. Unique Soul, I appreciate the tag and the opportunity to write and reflect upon the gratitude I have for the little things in life that make life worth living! This came at a perfect time, getting me out of my own head and into my heart while I process some old wounds that popped up yesterday. These ten things are in no particular order😊

1. Connecting with my soul/yoga/meditation/shamanic journeying🧘‍♀️

Embracing the multidimensional human being I am. Taking time to be fully present in both my humanity and spirituality is always a highlight to my day. It’s how I start my day, a little check in with myself and the best way to ground into my body and the Earth. Lately, since I have been learning the magic of shamanic healing, getting to journey with my spirit guides and meditating are one and the same. Just being and feeling inner peace is priceless. I also find that I’m happiest when connecting to nature. Here is a picture I snapped today while on my bike ride.

2. Dancing, singing, painting, writing…doing anything creative…freeing my spirit💃

I’m an upbeat, positive and highly energetic person by nature. I love channeling all my energy into being creative. Expressing myself, embracing my inner weirdo, letting my freak flag fly….ALL OF THAT! It’s taken me many years to accept myself for who I am and nowadays I live to be the artistic, highly sensitive empowered empath who owns her power while leaving my mark on this world with art.

3. Spending time at the beach😎🌊

I’ve written before about how much I adore being at the beach, it’s my happy place. I definitely have saltwater in my veins my dear readers. I have a lot of masculine yang energy and the Sun and I have been best friends forever! Being at the beach excites all my senses. Here in South Florida, the water is warm enough to swim all year round. Floating is one of my favorite pastimes while visiting. I was blessed to have lived on a private beach ten years ago and I know someday I will live near or on the beach again. For now I get to soak up the views on my parent’s lake.

4. Live music events🎶

In my high school years I was blessed to travel with The Dead and yes my dear readers, I’m a deadhead. It’s ingrained in my hippie soul to twirl to instrumental experimentation groovy music. I have a ziploc bag chock full of ticket stubs from all the music concerts and festivals I have attended since age 15. I love a wide array of bands and musicians. I’ve seen such acts as Harry Connick Jr. Live at Radio City Music Hall, Eric Clapton, Bella Fleck and the Flecktones, Bob Dylan (multiple times), The Rolling Stones, Coldplay and Michael Franti with Spearhead to name but a few. I also enjoy small hip lounge spots with live jazz, blues even classical. I’m a music lover and it soothes my soul. Right now I’m reading a book about how healing sound is. I’ve shared on here the Sound Heal app I use daily to adjust my own vibrations to the 7 different Solfeggio tones. I highly recommend checking it out.

Groovy baby

5. Being held by my man, the love of my life and spending quality time together

I started this post stating that this list is in no particular order but this is number 1 in my heart. My partner is my best friend, my companion and my favorite human being on the planet! This time apart is very difficult on both of us while he is still in Dallas tying up loose ends. I know once we are reunited it will be spectacular! We will finally be able to start our life together after many years of taking care of family. We recently celebrated 7 years together and we’ve agreed this is our year to finally tie the knot. Stay tuned for that my dears.

My man & I

6. Sharing ideas and learning new things🦋

It’s no secret that I love people and being a social butterfly. Having stimulating conversations and learning new things from people is something I must admit I miss right now during this lockdown. However, I have been able to participate in some group events via Zoom and I really enjoy interacting with people from all over the world! I tell my boys how important it is to keep an open mind and never stop learning. If you pay attention, you can learn something new every day.

I am a student of life
Always🧐

7. Chatting with my lady friends, my soul sisters, my tribe👸

The older I get, the more I cherish and gravitate towards my female tribe. I’m very blessed to have a solid group of lady sister friends that I can laugh with, cry with, share secrets, reminisce with and grab a cup of coffee. My girls are an array of people I have known most of my life with a mix of  salt of the Earth sisters that I met online yet we were cut from the same cloth. In this past year I have met a few ladies that I firmly believe I spent a past life or two with. God bless technology, especially right now.

8. Laughing, the good ol belly kind of laugter🤣

Whether it’s kicking back with family or friends, reminiscing over the good ol days or watching a silly movie, I love to laugh. Life is too short not to find the humor in things. Plus, having spent many years stuck in Complex PTSD sticky emotions, fear and depression I relish laughing. Hearing children’s laughter is the purest gift from God.

Love me some Chandler Bing

9. Being a Mom👩‍👦‍👦

My children are my best accomplishments in life. I thank God on a daily basis for giving me the best lessons in life through motherhood. I feel like I didn’t fully understand unconditional love and the act of selflessness until I became a mother. My boys are now 18 and 15. The time has definitely gone by too fast. I’m blessed to have been afforded the means in my first marriage to be a stay at home mother for 12 years, during their formative years. They make me so proud. I have put emphasis on raising good human beings. I always told them, it’s great if you can do well in school but I care more about the kind of person you are. Being kind, respectful of others, thoughtfulness, and love goes a long way in my book.

10. Getting into bed at night😴

I’m definitely more of a night owl than an early riser my dear readers. In my last position as a boutique manager, I worked nights so it wouldn’t be unusual for me to go to bed at 2 AM or so. Now that I’ve changed up my life so much, moved to a new place and am shifting careers into healing as an independent contractor my days are my own. I usually get up by 9 or so and I go go GO all day long so by 11, I’m more than ready to get under the covers. While writing this, I’m reflecting upon how much this change has really changed me! I love going to bed now and I have mostly been a person who didn’t get into bed until so late. To me this means, I’m becoming more content with me. Every month, more and more I can see myself becoming who I was always meant to be. I have created a sanctuary in my bedroom here in my parents house. I love my alter next to my bed, I have my crystals all around me, my candles and my aromatherapy essential oils. In true Ladysag77 fashion, here is my latest poem.

Remember

Please check out my two books of poetry available on Amazon and keep an eye out for my third book to be released soon! Here are the links:

  1. HA HA, Chandler Bing!! Oh my gosh. It’s hard to watch Friends because of how snarky they are all to each other, especially Rachel; but I love Chandler’s relationship with Monica!! There’s one episode with them that I think is so sweet. I don’t remember the specifics, but they disagree over something, and Chandler says sadly, “I guess we’re breaking up now,” and Monica was like, “What?! Over a disagreement? Ohhhh, that’s why you’ve never had any successful relationships! No, we’re not breaking up!” It warms my heart.

    1. I absolutely adore Friends lol….it’s my NYC peeps vibe. It is so ingrained in my coming of age intro into being an adult. I grew up with people like that. I’m Phoebe lol with a mix of Monica. I recall the episode you are referring to. I had the entire series on DVD plus the trivia game box set. I’m a huge fan😊

      1. Hahaha…..yes!! It was so much fun, my ex husband bought it for me because he knew how much I loved Friends. We had a movie one too. Remember DVD trivia games? My son makes fun of me for still having my DVDs and CDs. I told him when we move, I’m buying a record player and starting to collect albums again. I had a sick collection in high school and used to go to this cool hole in the wall record shop!

      2. Oh my gosh, totally! Remember the Walkman, and then the Discman? And how awful it was when the Discman quit working? HA HA HA HA!! Now it’s all about the tiny digital devices!! If you really want to freak out your son, you should revert to the tried-and-true audio cassette. HA HA HA HA HA.

      3. I love that we’re talking about this because I actually found my old single tapes here at my parents, remember those? I also found some mix tapes LOL🤣 Ones I had made and then colored the song lists!
        My ex bought me an iPod for Christmas in ’07 (I think) because he was embarrassed that I was still running with my Discman in a fanny pack! It took me yrs to convert to! Now I have my cell in a waist belt.
        I swear, these kids have 0 clue.
        I remember my pink AM/FM transistor radio with a strap that i carried around and thought i was so cool! It had a tape player and we used to record songs off the radio, did you do that?

      4. Yeah!! I still have my little portable audio cassette player!! I carried it around everywhere! My first tape was Thriller by Michael Jackson!! I still remember the ridiculous thrill of discovering what the fast-forward button did!!

        Heck yeah! Work that fanny pack! 😮 I spent earlier putting some digital songs on my cheap iPod (is that what it’s called?) so I can use it at the gym!! But that has nothing on the classic mix tape!! Oh my gosh!! My aunt made all these great ones for us to listen to in the car! They had Alan Parsons, Hall & Oates, Tears for Fears, Dire Straits, and more. I loved those mix tapes!

        Your pink radio sounds adorable!! How cutes!!

  3. Loved this from the title to the specifics to (definitely) the video of you dancing and the picture of you and your “guy” and “guys”. It was encouraging and refreshing to be reminded that we don’t always have to look at the negatives of emotions nor the negative feelings we experience. It is a very good thing to remember that we have many wonderful feelings that we experience each and every day — and to “honor those feelings” with care and joy is a good life “hack”. Thank you for this lovely essay. Enjoy your journey— Jane
