my journey

Saturday mornings are a nice time to reflect on all the places you've been and the places you are going and the all of the interesting things you learn along the way!

Amethyst Dreams

Amethyst is used as a dream stone. Put an amethyst under your pillow to bring about pleasant dreams, or rub it across your forehead to offer relief from a headache. The Ancient Egyptians used the amethyst to guard against nightmares.

the art of worldly wisdom

I came across this passage from Baltasar Gracian's The Art of Worldly Wisdom ~ "Know Yourself. Know your talents and capacity, in judgement and inclination. You can not master yourself unless you know yourself. There are mirrors for your face, but none for the mind. Let careful thought serve as your substitute".

One of the main reasons I decided to study psychology in college was to better understand myself. I have also found that reading the stories and experiences of others and then honestly contemplating what I would have done in that same predicament, also allows me to get a clearer picture of who I am and what I stand for. So time alone each day is essential for me, so that I may review my own experiences and analyze my actions in order to better understand myself ~ so I can decide what beliefs are truly important to me and which I can leave behind.

What does your color say?

Orange is a power color.  It stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. Lady luck's color is orange, and I have heard that if you want a change in your life, burn an orange candle for 7 nights! (worth a try, no?) 

Try orange on for yourself and see what powerful, creative, energy you can wield!

{Soul Searching}

At the center of your being, you know who you are and what you want . . . .

I think too often we suppress our true desires, either because we think we should do what someone else wants instead or we think our wants might be too grandiose or out of our reach. Looking back, I find that the things I remember most or I am most proud of, are those things that I truly wanted with all my heart and dreamed of, sometimes for years before they came my way.  What about you?
