Hi everyone. Just wanted to write another little freestyle post. I haven’t been posting much as usual, last month I only published 4 posts, and just 6 in March. I recently burnt myself out. At the start of spring, there’s always this burst of energy that comes through after a long period of cold and slow winter days, and what seems to happen is that we take this energy and run with it instead of continuing to pace ourselves. I think this happens to almost everyone. Winter is a beautiful reminder to slow down, and then spring comes and everyone wants to anxiously rush ahead into summer. In my area, there’s been a random wave of frost, which has actually helped me realize I’ve been moving too fast.
I’ve been working on something that will hopefully be finished by summer, I don’t want too say to much about it right now, but hopefully you’ll find out soon!! Alongside, I’ve also been working hard on my Crystal Aura blog that you should definitely check out! It has free horoscopes, numerology, tarot videos, and more — and also links to my Etsy store which offers personalized readings.
I keep feeling like there is a long list of things I’d like to accomplish, but there is never enough time in the day, or enough energy in me. I realize that it all comes down to what we prioritize. Slowing down is how you accomplish more because you’re not burning yourself out. I’m feeling very disorganized like my energy has been spread too thin. For a while I was so focused on expanding “Crystal Aura” but now I feel like it’s time to let it level out and then again in the future I can work more on expansion.
And I’m thinking of “Lotus Laura” and where do I want to take this and go from here. I do want to expand this blog, gain traffic, find more money making opportunities. I have so many ideas but I haven’t had that energy or spark to fully act on it. What I would like to focus more on is health, wellness, and spirituality — so health on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels. I think what’s going to bring me more energy is finding my passion and harnessing it, like an urgency to share an important message with the world. Passion brings so much effortless energy, but we fear passion because it also makes us more vulnerable to conflict and feeling hurt by those who disagree with us. But I’m deciding to push past that fear and keep on moving forward.
It was specifically last fall, I was thinking hard about what is my purpose in life, what do I want to contribute to the world that fulfills me. This is a question we tend to push to the side as we get older, especially when the reality of paying your bills and keeping up with a million different things at once sinks in. But if I’m not living with purpose, I’m instead running on empty, just loading up on caffeine and trying to make it through the day, and I can’t live like that. So I laid down and meditated for two hours straight and I opened my eyes and thought about how sick the world is, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally, and beyond that, spiritually. We have the power of plant medicine and music and exercise and all these other amazing gifts of the world that we ignore and continue to become sicker. And so, I want to be a healer.
I could continue ranting but I’m going to leave it at that!
