how i'm staying balanced during a spiritual awakening (and thoughts)

lately my head has been buzzing. i've experienced chronic sinusitis + sinus pressure for months along with tension where my third eye + crown chakras reside. i can’t focus. so much is going on in these chakras that i’m not (consciously) aware of. new ideas + creations are forming, emotional + ancestral blocks are dissolving… my intuition is ready to reveal itself.  so since my mind, my emotions, my spirit, + my unconscious are kicking things into high gear, i’ve been struggling to stay grounded. all the energy in my head has nowhere to go, unless i give it a hand.

easy daily chakra balancing

keeping our chakras in balance is vital - they are powerful and can influence our physical, mental, emotional, + spiritual state. these energy hubs process vast amounts of information on a day to day basis. healing imbalances or blockages doesn’t have to be a huge investment. we don’t always have time to meditate, or soak in the tub, or spend time in nature. here are some exercises you can incorporate into any routine.

amped up crystal coffee

if i'm not drinking my coffee black, i go all out: fat, potions, elixirs, the works. this year my focus has been bridging the gap between magick + the mundane, and food (or drinks) is an easy + fun way to practice this.

staying true to ourselves is extremely difficult at times. we don't like confrontation, or disappointing others, or we're scared, so we become different. we become another version of ourself. it doesn't seem dangerous, creating minute personas, but at their very core they are a coping mechanism, for us to survive. we can find ourselves so far away from who we once were, or who we yearn to be.  we're floating, and during this period everything becomes a tether, everything becomes a lifeboat. we want to find ourselves so bad. and it's time for us to stop thinking that we aren't fully being ourselves at every step on our journey. find yourself, within yourself, each + every moment.

the past few weeks (months, years, lifetimes) have shattered a lot of facades. we've journeyed time + time again to the darkness, only to uncover there's more work to be done. we've been torn apart, broken down, and now, maybe, we can finally breathe. with elements earthly + ethereal lining up, we can start to rebuild. we learned so many truths in our depths + we're ready to unite with our souls, our purpose, our self. this task seems theoretical, but it's not. it's about living how we want to live, being who we want to be. we know we have the power to change, so let's change. staying aligned with our highest good, our hearts, we can't be steered wrong.
