good luck to you all getting through the finale

The “I Can Do This!” Motivation bottle.

I made this little bottle for my wife at work, but I’ve decided to post it because I know finals are coming up and I think this could be helpful for those of you who are juggling your finals with the rest of your life! 

All of these things came from my kitchen spice cabinets, so nothing too crazy or difficult to find here!

I made this as something that embodied what is needed to get through the tough days. It isn’t a good luck charm, just something to bring out the best thing already in you.

Each layer is for a different piece of what makes up a good, productive day in my opinion, so here we go!

  • Sea salt - for protection
  • Cinnamon - for success & wisdom
  • Sage - for peace
  • Caraway seeds - for mental power
  • Basil - for confidence
  • Rosemary - for mental clarity
  • Red Pepper flakes - for energy

I find that saying my intent out loud really helps me to know that it is there, the more I say something out loud, the more I feel like it is true and real, so I focus on saying my intent for each layer out loud, over and over until I really do feel it there. I also find that saying these things out loud, and being sure of them, helps you to realize that there really IS power in your words. You have power to speak these words and really bring life to them because you are stating, whole-heartedly that this rosemary is going to bring mental clarity to your day. Don’t be afraid to spend as much time as you need to on each layer to feel like your intent is there. This helps me, personally. 

Once you’re filled up, put the cork back in, tightly. I would recommend packing these layers in tightly also, so if you care them around in your pocket, they don’t all mix together if you don’t want them to.

After, I sealed my bottle with wax (mine was vanilla scented because it is my wife’s favorite scent and it’s something that really makes her happy) - (also I will make a little post about how I seal up little bottles with wax later on!) and sat with it for quite a while, really focusing the intent into the whole bottle, and what you want for it as a whole. Like before, I sat repeating out loud until I really felt it and believed it with the knowing that my words have power!

I hope this was helpful! 

For those of us that are still struggling with discovering kin types and trying to discern specifics,don’t lose hope! Not everyone just knows. Some people spend years trying to fully understand themselves. Like finding yourself in your daily life, it takes time and patience and experience. You didn’t know you were good at art or band or athletics until you were in high school, some of you, so allow yourself to grow. Don’t force anything and be gentle. Secondly, knowing what you looked like in a past life (if you’re a past lifer) is not a huge deal. You live through a first person perspective so knowing what you look like would be incredibly difficult. finally, don’t feel bad for correcting your kin type. Some people don’t just know what they are, and some people don’t get it right the first time. All in all, be patient and gentle with yourself, be persistent in meditating and researching, and good luck discovering yourself~

Summer Goals

I hope you all did well on finals and are now relaxing for the summer. If not, good luck with those finals and don’t stress too much. 

I decided to make a Summer Goals page to keep myself on track. I tend to slack off in the summer, and this summer is probably the most important of my entire life. By August, I will have a teaching job if I can get through all the things I need to get done! At the same time, I need to relax and squeeze some fun in because I know that I will burn out if I don’t take a breather. 

I separated my summer goals by categories: Personal, Spiritual, Fun, and Career. Of course, you will personalize your pages. 

I also am in the process of making a “Meditation Plan,” so keep checking back here to find it! It’s going to be all kinds of pretty. 

signs as my favorite autumn feelings/things

also make sure to check your rising and moon !!!!!

aries: pumpkin patches. finding the perfect gourd. seeing all the options and having a blast when you get there. going on the hay rides. feeling like this moment will never end.

taurus: thanksgiving MORNING. when the table’s set and you get all dressed up. dinner is still being prepared and you put on the perfect outfit ready to give thanks.

gemini: leaves falling and changing. the inevitable change that feels so welcoming and as they fall running to catch them (for good luck) pumpkin smashing

cancer: visiting an art gallery (outside) walking leisurely through the autumn trees and looking at beautiful art. being alone and soaking everything in. pumpkin

leo: costume parties. spending all the time looking for the perfect one and finally piecing the look together. going to the party and having the time of your life w all the decorations and themed food

virgo: the beginning. the very first sights of leaves and cold weather. first times realizing the changing season. spending your mornings outside lying in the sun and chill breeze.

libra: the heart of autumn. unlike the beginning you are smack in the middle. feeling everything about the season. halloween turning into november. the wardrobe. finding the perfect fall outfit.

scorpio: the magic of the season. the little eerie parts of autumn. haunted houses and neighbors. the feeling that something magical will happen. mazes

sagittarius: the fair. going on rides with your friends. being able to see your breath. eating all the food and having a great time. never wanting this moment to end.

capricorn: those nights in. huge sleepovers where you tell ghost stories and explore outside after dark. the nights getting longer. hot chocolate.

aquarius: parades. standing in the chill watching the autumn floats passing by. being w your loved ones and getting coffee afterwards. going to diners in the middle of an autumn drive.

pisces: camping. going out by the lake just to get away from everyone. driving up through the foliage. staying in a cabin and hiking in the dawn of day when you can see your breath and have to wear a sweater.

Thanks to both of you for showing me how fun Resbang really is! It was my first time, but it was a pleasure working with both of you and helping me get through it. 

Special thanks to the mods for organizing and putting this all together, I know your job must not be easy.

Finally, congrats and good luck to those who have posted or are awaiting their turn <3

Goodbye flashcards. Hello books! 

Finally done with my exams. It feels strange to have some leisure time but I do my best to enjoy it and to run some little projects before my internship starts in a few weeks.

Good luck to all of you who still have some exams to get through! I will keep my fingers crossed for you. ;)
