Goat Yoga! (Bahhmaste!)

I took a goat yoga class, and I have to say, it was seriously one of the best experiences of my life. After hearing about goat yoga many years ago, it’s always something I’ve wanted to try, but never really looked into. I was urging to take a new yoga class, and after some quick […]

Why I wear a head covering (part 2)

I have already written a post about my initial choice to wear a head covering (click here) I wanted to write a little more extensively about my personal experience. First, it is a personal choice, and just because I choose to do so does not mean I want or expect others to follow. This is […]

Penelope (Penny), my cat from childhood

I have written before about Buttermilk, my first cat. But I’m surprised I have not made a post yet about Penelope, or Penny, (or Princess Penny) my second cat. I actually knew Penny before I adopted Buttermilk. She was my older cousin’s cat, who had her for many years. I got Buttermilk for my ninth […]

A brief retelling of “Aida”

“Aida” (pronounced like eye-YEE-duh) originally began as an Italian opera from 1871. It was later adapted as a movie in 1953, starring Sophia Loren, in which the actors lip-synced opera recordings. Later, in 1998, the plot line was used as a musical in NYC, with music written by Elton John and Tim Rice. Setting & […]

Mythology

Mythology Monday ~ Light Versus Dark

We are all aware of the changing of the seasons, the turning of the planet, and the shift between lighter days and darker days. Ancient religions were also aware of this cycle, before modern science could prove or explain the reasoning why. Pagan traditions marked these dates — summer and winter solstice, spring and autumn […]

Mythology ~ Persephone (and Hades)

Persephone is an ancient Greek goddess — who’s name is pronounced like purr-seff-uh-nee (rhymes with Stephanie.) The energy surrounding Persephone is very dark, gothic, and almost gloomy. Yet ironically, she is associated with springtime and fertility. Representing death and rebirth, Persephone draws many parallels to the goddesses Isis and Kali. Persephone is the daughter of […]

Short Story ~ Parvati & Shiva

The is a story based on the true ancient Hindu myth of Goddess Parvati & Lord Shiva. Parvati was born into a rich and royal family. From the moment she was born, her parents had the relief that she would be well taken care of for the rest of her life and would never have […]

Spirituality

A little bit about my personal spirituality and beliefs…

This is a little bit about my personal spirituality and experience. I know this is something completely different for everyone, as we all have unique experiences, even those who belong to the same religion slightly differ in certain ways. First, I am very open minded. Not only tolerant of other beliefs, but highly interested. I […]

Theory ~ Is time speeding up faster?

There is a theory that time is moving faster and progressively gaining speed. It is common knowledge that subjectively, time moves faster as you age — one year for a five-year old feels significantly longer than one year for a fifty-year old. But that’s not what I am referring to. I am talking about time […]

Types of Starseeds — which one are you?

“Starseeds” refer to the type of star system you and your ancestors may have originally came from, pinpointing back to a specific star-system in another area of the universe. There is a theory that specific alien tribes exist, and that your soul could have been a part of one (or more) of these, before choosing […]

Ask a Cat Mom: “should I give my cat a bath?”

Q: Should I give my cat a bath? A: The short answer — no. But let me explain why — as well as what to do if you genuinely feel like your cat is stinky and really needs one! Cats do not need baths because they are “self-cleansing.” Surprisingly, dogs do not need baths either […]

My New Guinea pigs!

Just a quick post to introduce my new little babies! Two/three weeks ago, I brought home two new guinea pigs. They are albinos, rescued/adopted from an animal testing facility. They are about four months old, and super cute! Their names are Skull and Bones — nicknamed Skully and Bo (or Bobo.) Although they are nearly […]

How to show your cat dominance

We’re all familiar about the concept of showing dogs dominance, but what about cats? Many don’t realize that showing dominance is even more important with cats than dogs! It is said that you don’t own your cat — rather, your cat owns you. This holds great truth because cats are not fully domesticated, meaning that […]

Health update #3 ~ pushing forward

Yet another health update, which I will be most likely doing a lot more of. I would like to title these updates something like “RA journey” or “autoimmune update” or something along those lines… which I hesitate to do at this point. Although, I am still very sure that I am dealing with RA. As […]

My autoimmune disease diagnosis

I went to the doctor on Monday, and was told that I have an autoimmune disease called Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am taking further steps to get blood work done to try and figure out for sure what is going on, and where to go from here. My head is boggled with a ton of information […]

Let’s normalize the menstrual cycle!

The menstrual cycle is a natural function that should be normalized by society. Women (or anyone who menstruates) should be able to walk to the bathroom carrying a tampon or pad in public, without feeling pressured to hide it in shame and secrecy. Women should be allowed to discuss it in public. Men should not […]

I tried taking a DNA test!

For a while now, I’ve been super curious about taking a DNA test. In the past few years it’s become fairly popular. I did feel a little strange about sending someone my DNA, but I thought it would be so cool to see what the results say. *This is NOT a sponsored post!* Click here […]

Openness to connection

I have really been going through a lot of darkness in recent times, which you can probably see by some previous posts. But as I always say, how it’s darkest before dawn, that letting your pain come to the surface is the first step of true healing — it means that the healing process has […]

The Art of Confrontation (is it worth it?)

Confrontation is that moment when you approach someone boldly and let them know how they have been making you feel. Most of the time, confrontation comes with anger. To confront, or not to confront…? I blame TV and movies for creating the false premise that confrontations will solve all your problems. If someone is treating […]

Time will tell… and unveil illusions…

Do you ever notice how people tend to check the time more often when they’re stressed, or losing their minds? Check their phones, their watches, the clock, etc. There’s a reason for that. Constantly checking the time is like grasping onto reality when it’s slipping away. It could also be checking the calendar, checking the […]
