Album Review: “Chemtrails over the Country Club” by Lana Del Rey

“Chemtrails over the Country Club” was released by Lana Del Rey in March of 2021. Quick thoughts: I can’t help but compare every single album she puts out, and this one for sure stands out from the rest, differing in so many ways, while somehow staying true to original Lana Del Rey essence. Lana Del […]

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 […]

Are you an “old soul” or a “new soul”?

An “old soul” is someone who has incarnated many, many lifetimes before this one. A “new soul” has much fewer past lives, and in some rare cases, this is their very first life. Knowing if your soul is old or young leads to more self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-understanding. It also helps to know if the […]

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 […]

In loving memory of Athena, my guinea pig

Friday morning, I woke up shocked to find my little guinea pig, Athena, had passed away. It looked like she had gone peacefully in her sleep the night before. At first, I really hoped she was just sleeping, and my heart sank and tears streamed down my face to see that she was gone. I […]

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 […]

Flower Essences ~ Pomegranate

And so begins a new series on flower essences! Thanks to Black Rabbit Tea Lady for bringing “flower essences” to my attention — something I have just recently learned about and continue to educate myself on.

The Path of Poisonous Plant Medicine (Intro)

As I have learned more and more about plant medicine through the years, I have just now recently found myself drawn to “poisonous plant medicine” — a seemingly dangerous yet actually healing path. The energy of most plant medicine is very “love and light,” but the path of poison is dark and forces you to […]

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 […]

Sixteen assumptions about people who are single

Don’t be so quick to judge! There are so many common assumptions people make about a person who is single, so let me clear this up… 1. …that we are lonely. Loneliness is a state of mind. You can be in a room full of people and still feel lonely. Actually, a bad relationship is […]

How fragile everything is

There is something I have learned somewhat recently. I did know this all along, I think everyone knows this, but now I feel like I really know it… Maybe this is what makes life so frustrating and unfair, or maybe this is what makes life so fragile and delicate in the most beautiful way. Progress […]

Praying for patience

I vividly recall being fourteen-years old, and having this mental image of a clock on my back. I could hear it ticking loudly, a constant alarm in my head that time was running out, that I was always “on the clock.” Sometimes I would picture myself in a room full of clocks, the old-fashioned circular […]
