Sometimes I feel the overwhelming need to go home. I wonder what it would be like to have a childhood home to go back to, to reset and feel safe. But then I doubt that would make a difference. I’ll keep trying to retreat into myself and build a home in there. I￼￼ imagine it would look like a small cottage with a greenhouse and garden, hidden in the English countryside.
On Fridays, I light a candle for the goddess Isis and meditate. This phrase kept showing up. I’m sharing it in case someone else needs to hear it as well. If this post has shown up on your dash, then maybe you were meant to see it. ⭐️
Perawatan mental dasar bagi orang rentan dan sensitif
Punya diri yang rentan dan sensitif memang memerlukan perawatan dan pembentukan batasan yang tegas. Ketika diri tiba-tiba merasa tidak nyaman maka perlu untuk temukan pemicunya. Butuh waktu bagi ku untuk memahami pemicunya. Lalu setelah ketemu pemicunya, aku sampaikan kondisi aku secara asertif: sampaikan perasaan diri sendiri dan apa yang diperlukan.
Menyampaikan batasan merupakan salah satu…
Grounding is an important technique that you will use a lot over the course of walking down the path of Wicca because when you are ready to start working the craft, you need to be able to focus your energy into what you are doing. Grounding helps when you have a million things running through your head and you feel like you cannot calm down. To ease your mind, I am listing a grounding technique below that you can try when you feel keyed up.

From the Archive 2017/8: Joya Arte Y Ecologica Residency Almeria Spain
Artist Book Project
A residency project exploring art, yoga and ecology in an alpine desert location in a national park in Spain, investigating the connections between walking, meditation, mantra, colour and chakras. Drawing on Raja Yoga principles whilst walking in nature on seven different occasions; linking the Bija (seed) mantras focusing on one of the seven chakras found in the body whilst simultaneously visualising its corresponding colour.
A continuous cycle of walking and contemplation engaging the wheels of energy created by each chakra from the root to the crown of the head that include grounding, creativity, power, balance, self-expression, imagination and connection. Mantra is an artist book recording these walks and can be used to create your own walking meditations.

it evokes a sense of belonging. where am i. wherever you are. rather than a questioning of where you are, which creates space for doubt and discontent to flood your thoughts.
in order to be satisfied with myself and feel as if i am enough, i must refrain from the constant urge to pose the question where am i?, and instead seek to satisfy the statement where am i. by solidifying where i am and grounding myself mentally, physically, spiritually.
sure, it’s grammatically incorrect, but it cuts through the anxiety-ridden thoughts that spawn from the unnecessary details when answering the question where am i?
where am i? am i where i want to be? why am i not where i want to be? am i not good enough to be where i want to be? i must be a failure.
introspection can either be an invaluable tool for personal growth, or a crushing burden of cyclic thought and source of downward spiralling depending on how it’s used. either form wields much power. there is a time for wielding, and a time for putting it away, taking a break, and avoiding posing the question.
where am i. simply is. it removes the doubt. all worry, all thought, neither past, nor future can affect your now. where am i. is are where you are. existing.
Were my exact words when I bolted up our bed. I saw a flash of light and suddenly I'm no longer where I am. I'm transported in a place where people are screaming. I can hear them in my head and they are telling me "You have to run", "It's not safe here", "They are coming after you", "No one is safe", "If you leave, you'll avoid bringing everyone down with you". "Run. run..."
I was sobbing. He hugged me tight. Whispering "it's okay. We're safe. I'm right here". I held his face with both my hands and leaned my forehead against his and told him "We have to go. It's not safe". He hugged me tighter. My sobs become louder. I can feel my heart pounding through my chest as fear creeps in. We have to go now before fear takes over and leaves me paralyzed. My feet are ready to bolt. My mind already making plans how to make my escape. Every route, every turn was already clear in my mind. I just have to keep running to lure away those trying to hurt us. I need to run. He kept on telling me to calm down And started asking me a few things." What's your grounding techniques?" He said, "5 things you can see,4 things you can touch?". "No.no. I answered". I tried to tell him until we got it right. Then we started again. He asked.."tell me five things you can see". I opened my eyes, didn't even realized that my eyelids were shut tight opening them gave my eyes some relief. I looked around and said "pillow, curtains.." I stopped and he urged. "What else?". I responded " Fan, bed, you". "Okay. Good. Tell me 4 things you can hear". He pushed. I replied " the mechanical hum of air-conditioning, the blades of the fan, the cars outside and your voice". He said "Good. Let's keep going. Tell me 3 things you can smell". He was hugging my tight again and for a moment I remembered we needed to go. I struggled for a bit and then he told me: "we will leave if you tell me this. Give me 3 things you can smell" he repeated. I answered " the soap on the pillows, my own perfume, your skin". And then asked me again. " Name 2 things you can touch". I tried to focus and said " the texture of our bed sheet, the warmth of your skin". He cupped my face and asked. " Name 1 thing you can taste". He suddenly brought his lips to mine.. kissing me slowly, as if I'd break if he kissed me intensely, it took a me a few seconds before I realized I was kissing him back. I tried to pull away to stop my sobs but he was holding me tight and I melted into his kiss and just like that--i was back.
