Say Hello to Mercury in Retrograde!

That’s right! Mercury has just once again gone into Retrograde. Also along with Saturn, Jupiter, and Venus which have been in Retrograde- but no one fears them quite like good ole’ Mercury.

Someone messages me the other day asking for my opinion about Mercury re-entering Retrograde and I honestly shrugged it off. 


Mercury in Retrograde is only scary when you LET it be scary. This Retrograde it honestly feared by so many people but let’s be real- it’s not scary and only will be if you’re not tuning into your own thoughts and feeling. If you’re unconscious- that’s when it’s your enemy.

This is one of the best times to challenage your current perspective and to really practice some mindful behaviors and to look into getting insight on other situations and views.

A lot of people’s issues is not really listening to themselves and blindly moving around- it’s time to mediate, mediate, mediate. It’s time to re-enforce good behaviors, and really look at what ones need to exit right on the stage. It’s time to focus on more healthy communication with yourself and others.


Mercury is Retrograde in my opinion is a great time for CHANGE. If you’re struggling it’s due to something needing to change and this is a great time to REFLECT on that.

I was just reading something and it sparked a really good perspective (look it’s already happening!) that this is also a great time to implentment new affirmations, personal mantras, and new habits. 

I fully agree that this is one hunderd percent that time.

The Day of a Spiritual Momma

If you don’t know, I’m a young mother to a beautiful little boy who recently turned one. When my journey began I hadn’t ever thought a child was apart of my plan, especially at the age of 18. But he is a blessing, a light in my life that wasn’t expected. My experience with the divine and sacred motherhood was healing, uplifting, and powers me. It is powerful, and their is no bond, no understanding like the one between child and mother.

But days can be long and hard- sometimes I am faced with emotional blocks and physical fatigue that I’ve never knew could be possible.

5 am: Wake up- my breakfast for husband and his lunch, start coffee, drink water.

5:45 am: Yoga to soft music.

6:20 am: Read clients and/or work on blog posts and/or newsletter

7:30: Make morning smoothie, make son’s breakfast, wake son up.

8:00: Spend time with son, reply to emails and messages as they come in.

11:00: Feed son, put him down for nap time, make myself another meal, drink water, spend time in reflecting. Fit clients in as needed.

12:00-3:00: teach my son, play games, nurture him.

3:20: Greet husband, watch them play and interact, make wholesome dinner. Celebrate and talk about our days together.

4:00 Shower, cleanse myself, take time to reflect again. Through out my day I try to reflect and consider things- afterwards I fit replies and emails in.

7:00: Bedtime. This can sometimes take awhile since we do not believe in CIO. After this I relax, and reconnect with my husband and attend to  more business.

Beginning of a Spiritual Life Pt. 3

Part of my own spiritual adventure was recovering from traumas. I went through a lot of therapy and counseling as a child- still with that I struggled to really observe, process, and heal from it. There was still some sort of anger, remorse, self-blame, and most importantly: I didn’t understand why. Why was the biggest issue.

You’ll never hear me say: “Rape is God’s plan!” or “God throws the hard balls to those he think can handle it!”

Because that isn’t true- but spirituality helped me understand that I could come back from it. It helped me understand that there was nothing I could do but move forward, because it did not defeat me. I DID nothing. I DIDN’T deserve it. Most importantly, I could channel my energy into something more productive.

During my Theories of Chemical Dependency and Abuse class in college there was a Chapter called: The mixing puzzle piece. The Chapter reviewed the lacking element in any Recovery from a controlled substance: the health of the spiritual side. I think it may be a very important piece of recovery, people who are recovering need a lot of healing, a lot of balancing, and need to focus on staying and being grounded.

Spirituality is all about giving what you get, and understanding the give and take behavior of the Universe. Especially with someone recovering from drugs- understanding the idea that feeding into negativity only breeds more negativity is vital to moving forward. While yes, therapy teaches, I feel as though when you BELIEVE in these word, these idea, these boundaries it makes for a more divine, and profound recovery.

Beginning my spiritual path meant one thing for me: finally surrendering that I was not always in control and that it is okay to not always be in control.

 

Dreams: Guiding Through Your Soul

Back when I was 16 I worked with a paranormal group- I was in charge of their social media and with that- I started studying everything that was paranormal and occult related. One of the things was dreams interpretations and it slowly became one of my favorite topics. There was a point where I owned and studied multiple books and audio types on it. If you go through my tumblr account (theghoulgirls) you can actually find a lot of posts on this topic on how to interpret dreams and folklore on dreams.

In my first year old college I had a professor who was a fan of Carl Jung- which is mostly known for his ideas on the collective conscious and his ideology on the archetypes.  For those of you who follow me for my spirituality post and tarot work- I attended college and majored in: Addiction Counseling, Clinical Counseling, and was working on my undergrad for Human Services- all of which focus in psychology. One thing about the pioneers of modern day Psychology (Freud and Jung) is how they worked with the dream world. (Unneeded opinion- always go with Jungian theory. Less sexual and more to the point.)

The most interesting thing during my psychology class was this- was the studies that made dream interpreting a reality. I remember sitting in class when my professor told us a story about how he interpreted his sisters in law dream: she stood on the beach with waves crashing around her- with her family far ahead. She was pregnant at the time and withholding the information.

Shortly after this, I had a dream. One that, in a way, changed my life forever. In this dream, I sat in a wooden chair, unable to see anyone, but could hear my husband say, “theres my baby, theres my baby boy” and two weeks later I had a positive pregnancy test, and almost 5 months later my ultrasound revealed I was in fact having a baby boy.

Dreams, they’re fascinating fragments of our subconscious and unconscious mind. Things that our mind keep from us during the day. Stress, anger, despair, worry, hate- your mind will create images that hopefully you’ll take and interpret.
