the past few weeks, while "staying-safer-at-home" and
experiencing new world pandemic lifestyle, my energies, thoughts, and
"triggered" behavior patterns have forced me to anxiously move
from a state of "survival" to a more hopeful, sustainable, and calming
"it will be okay" vibe. Our neighborhood parks and local hiking
trails were closed for a period of time, so no mental health miles running
on the dirt and out in nature. I had to find positive ways to release
my stress and anxiety. Shopping and dealing with people at the grocery
store freaked me out a bit and motivated me to get the garden cleaned
out and planted with food (just in case - who knows?.....) I have been
working (a lot) in the backyard garden. Digging deep and getting dirty.
Trying to R-E-L-A-X. Growing tasty veggies and herbs. Grieving.
Wondering and praying. WTF. Started to create and build a labyrinth.
Dealing with the "drama" in the garden caused by a plethora
of earwigs and gophers (not helpful in relaxing.) 1st year planting lettuce,
definitely beginner’s luck with a big green payout. These are Salad Days.
I find myself, more than ever,
reaching for the crystals seeking some stability, grounding, stress relief,
energetic comfort, inspiration, and support. The crystals are something
tangible I can hold onto while everything continues to spin in this weird
badly written surreal Sci-Fi movie called "WTF?!? Covid-19".
Keep the Vibe High is my mode of operandi. The every day energetic focus
for me is to stay in the present moment and cultivate joyful
energetic vibrations that help to “lighten the load” when responsibilities
and situations seem a bit overwhelming. I appreciate the crystalline
support for helping me release dark thoughts, feelings of depression and
anxiety, letting go of fears and built up tension, as a reminder to be
gentle with myself and others, and useful for up-cycling any negative
vibe into a positive, energetic and encouraging outlook. In my
experience, I find it is very beneficial to slooooowwww it all down when
things appear to be happening too quickly, or I feel unprepared, or
powerless to deal with circumstances seemingly out of my control.
Here are few crystal suggestions to
slow it down, get some clarity, and create a positive mindset and
openness to experience life with more of a trusting and long-term overall
perspective. Take a few moments, sit (or garden) with the crystals,
and meditate...............Wheeeeeew...... much better.
