Everywhere I look, everyone is talking about shadow work. This is not new. I have read the books and have been taking baby steps into doing the work. The last couple of weeks I have had some pretty heavy dreams, many of which involved The Cockroach. Why am I still having to talk about him? Some included my sister in law which I thought was interesting. There were other things as well but those were the big ones.
So I guess what I think shadow work is and what it actually is aren’t even close. I found a meditation on cutting etheric cords which magically popped up in my Pinterest feed this morning, I felt it was something I needed to do. Especially after those dreams.
I woke up this morning feeling sluggish and I have a swollen gland. I still can’t think of anything I ate yesterday that could have given me a reaction? I decided to take a detox bath which consists of espom salts, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, and ginger. This is when I chose to listen to the meditation. I did feel lighter afterwards but I still felt “low” energetically.
I made a cup of blue lotus tea and continued reading Awakened Empath by Luna & Sol. I was at the section on shadow work…go figure and many more things started making sense. So many things….I read for a little bit and then the Girl asked if we could go to Target.
I really didn’t “feel” like going out but we went. I did feel better by the time we came home. Maybe I just needed to step away from my space? I did find a big bag of epsom salts at a great price which I needed. I am planning on making a batch of reiki charged, blue moon bath salts. I might even give some of it away, maybe? I am making them for me this time and that’s just as rare as a full moon on Halloween.
The Girl carved four of her five pumpkins last night. I don’t have pictures yet, hopefully tomorrow. She still hasn’t carved #5 and it’s cold any rainy outside tonight. I cleaned and baked the pumpkin seeds of six carving pumpkins (she brought the guts home from the two she carved at her dads) and two pie pumpkins. I was making seeds all night! I still have the four small pie pumpkins that I grew but I will wait before I tackle those little ones.
This week should be an interesting one… The veil is thinning, people are showing their true colors, and things are shifting. All I can do is roll with it and try and keep my vibrations high. I can’t worry about tomorrow, I can only be in this moment right now….Zia
