- paint your nails an opalescent color for the Aesthetic™, if you’re into that
- make yourself some rosewater for skin care (can post a tutorial if you want)
- seriously, drink some water. consider adding fruit (I like lemons and strawberries with some mint in mine)
- stretch. stretch your arms, your neck, your back, your wings if you can feel them. just take your time to really stretch when you get the chance
- humming hymns under your breath
- if possible, spend some time roaming your local library reading about all sorts of things
- spending time in nature, maybe even gardening
- sitting outside on a sunny day, basking in the warmth and sounds around you
- sitting in a car with the windows down while closing your eyes. it’ll feel like you’re flying!
- if you don’t like Enochian, Latin is a great language to use and learn for angelic purposes
- wearing some angelic fashion (whatever that means to you! for me, that means lots of golds, roses, earth tones, softer colors and textures, and flowy tops)
- listening to choirs and getting lost in the harmonies because it echoes home
- listening to chants and being reminded of times long lost
- being as honest and loving as you can
- being as fierce and protective as you can
- wearing some light lotion that smells like temples and gardens the world forgot
- just taking the time to breathe and love yourself
When we started discussing what we were going to wear for my graduation, my ma quietly and hesitantly asked, “Mai sari pehen sakti hoon?”
Can I wear a sari?
And I was suddenly hit with shame and revulsion for myself. I have in the past asked her not to wear overly desi clothes to celebrations because I was embarrassed. But now, I am deeply ashamed that I had internalized so much hatred for myself, for my colorful culture and traditions, for our beautiful and historical clothes, that I would ever do such a terrible thing. That I would make my own ma think twice before asking to wear a sari.
It was with tears in my eyes that I begged her to please wear the sari.
I love my ma’s saris, and I love my ma’s bindi, and I love my ma.
My greatest accomplishment on graduation was not my diploma, but her pride. Everything for you, ma. Thank you.
