Miscellaneous Musings

Today I'd just like to touch on a little bit of living room, kitchen and hallway are now being painted and space for my laptop and myself is somewhat relegated to where ever I can find it, which makes writing my blog a tad bit difficult. It will look nice when it's finished but until then my usual routine (which I seldom deviate from) has become a distant dream for now!

The first topic I'd like to talk about is my daily meditation ...or lack thereof...I have mentioned in posts previously about how important to my sanity they are but this last week I have become acutely aware that my inability to focus and relaxation has been put on the back burner, mostly due to workman going in and out of the front door, paint fumes and piles of random furniture and tarps from my living room all the way down the hall to the laundry area.

I have decided that even though it might be just a few minutes a day, it is imperative that I take advantage of them as they come lest I again get the urge to run screaming from the house! ( I know, you're all going to start wondering soon if I should be in a long term facility...)I'm not doing my whole routine but I've found that just taking fifteen or twenty minutes to ground and center myself make a world of difference. It's so easy to go through my day and not realize how wound up I am until the evening time comes and I find myself too exhausted for anything but bedtime.

My second order of business is a new blog just started by Celestite called Seeker. It's a great blog that chronicles her journey into the art of divination in all it's forms from tarot to pendulums and anything else in between. I myself use the tarot, and runes but have not delved too deeply into pendulums or scrying.....although I recently purchased a beautiful Triple Goddess scrying bowl....and this is absolutely the perfect forum for me to explore areas that I've yet to discover. When mentioning divination, most people seem to shudder and everything connected with this art seems somewhat mysterious and a little intimidating so I encourage you to check it out and find out for yourself the true meaning of "occult" ( the word occult simply means "hidden" or "not seen" and is nothing like what has been portrayed in spooky and gruesome Hollywood horror flicks)

Lastly I'd like to mention Earth Hour....Which is this evening at 8:30pm your local time and is an effort to make a difference by diminishing our carbon footprints and switching off our lights for one hour. This is an excellent website with great concern for Mother Earth and again I encourage you to check it out and join in turning off your light for an hour.

Well, that's my miscellaneous contribution for today and tomorrow will be my usual Serenity Sunday list.

I'm having the same problem right now with taking a few minutes for myself, and I don't have the excuse of workmen trampling through the house.

I am excited about Seeker too and I am looking forward to your contributions to the talk!
