For the past 48 hours, I have been organizing and preparing for my journey. I really want to immerse myself in it, so I made a few small purchases...

Debbie's Chakra Journey
Debbie's Chakra Journey
For a while now, I've been wanting to bring my spiritual collection together in one place - an altar of sorts - and was searching for the perfect spot. I've also been feeling guilty for spending so much time at my computer but, between my businesses and studies, I feel like there really isn't an alternative. And that's when I realized I could combine the two! First, I removed stuff that wasn't essential for work - which turned out to be everything except the computer tower, the monitor, and the printer. Then I tied up the cords, bought a six-pack of shelves from Walmart for $15, and lovingly arranged my books, journals, lights, crystals, candles, incense, and oils all around me. I absolutely adore my new space and am preparing to do a cleansing and dedication.
Yesterday at 5:30pm I was in good spirits, but doubtful the sky would be clear. Instead of descending into despair, I chose to offer a prayer to various Gods, Archangels, and Elementals. By 6pm the sky was clearing, but the moon had not yet risen. By 6:30pm I could see the moon rising in the east, but it was covered in chemtrails. By 8pm when I decided to go outside and begin my ceremony, the moon was overhead... and the sky was clear and full of stars! I completed a smudging, offered a prayer of good fortune for the new year, and performed an Elemental Ritual, a Full Moon Meditation, a Cleansing Prayer, a Celebration for Manifestation, and a Full Moon Blessing, then placed my stones in the soil of Mother Earth to recharge. This morning I brought them in before the rising of the Sun, and am about to clean, program and thank them for the work they do. I am already thinking about what I want to do for the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse on January 31st...
Yesterday I spent the entire day researching and creating my first crystal cleansing and charging ceremony. Then I took a shower, did my hair, put on my favorite black witchy dress, donned some jewelry, and gathered my items and crystals. I was so excited - until I walked out and discovered the entire sky was covered in chemtrails, completely blocking out the moon. Normally when this happens, I try to stay grounded and positive. I know everything serves me and the dark events happening today are just a reflection of the majority's current level of consciousness. I try to accept its role, not label it, and respond with love. But it caught me off guard and I was unable to forgive, so I decided to turn my attention elsewhere and try again tomorrow.
First day of the new year... AND a super moon! Getting set up to cleanse and charge my crystals!
Today I lit a candle and burned away people and situations that caused me pain, followed by a welcoming ritual. Every day is a new start and a new chance. This year I resolve to love myself, deliberately create my reality, and allow peace into my life. Happy New Year.
I was excited to start Week One on December 11th so that I would start Week Two on Christmas and Week Three on New Year's Day, but holiday preparations ate into my time. I, therefore, began rushing to try and keep up, but I'm now finding that the quality of my spiritual work is suffering. I believe it's more important to do it right and become a better person than to hurry to the finish line, so I'm taking two steps back. If we are always exactly where we need to be, then I am on the right path and my journey will only benefit from this decision. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.
I finally had a breakthrough - in fact, two. In the past, I have meditated on my Root Chakra and envisioned (or tried to) my roots extending deep into Mother Earth. But I always had difficulty staying rooted because every time I moved, I pictured my roots being ripped out of the ground. The day before I started this course, I happened to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol2 and realized that the way Groot dug and extended his roots deep into the Earth was a perfect visualization I could use. But I still felt like they were being ripped out every time I moved. A couple of days later, I was driving and tried to envision my roots following me down the street, but it wasn't working. I didn't want them ripped out, so I began thinking about how I could be permanently rooted. Suddenly, I could see a metal plate with a fused metal ring firmly attached to my perineum. My roots snaked through and around the ring, then dug deep into Mother Earth. When they reached the core, I saw a sphere with its own fused metal ring that my roots wound themselves around. Now I was firmly rooted, but couldn't figure out how I could go anywhere. Then I remembered that all matter is 99% empty space! Suddenly, it was super easy to see my roots stretching from my physical body to the Earth's core, being dragged through empty space as the sphere rotated any time I moved! Dodging pieces of solid matter here and there, waving at passersby. Day after day, hour after hour, minute by minute, I am now able to remain rooted to Mother Earth. My second breakthrough came yesterday, when I realized that I am not alone: every soul can and should be rooted the same way! Now I envision billions and trillions of golden roots tethered to the core, braided, woven, fused, becoming one, and it is a beautiful sight!
I have still not received the incense, but I've decided to start without them. I have a habit of procrastinating until I feel like conditions are perfect, so today I'm doing things differently. My intuition and Higher Self are reminding me that things are rarely, if ever, perfect and isn't that kind of the point of this course? To prepare us to deal with life? To remind us that we are creating this life? To teach us how to change our lives? "Tonight all the monsters are gonna dance. If you're only dreaming, why do I hear you screaming? Tonight all the monsters are gonna dance. They're coming to get you. Here we go..."
I received my candles and essential oils today; now I am only awaiting the incense. I prepared a spot on my desk for meditation, because I realized I can't sit on the floor all crisscross applesauce with burning candles and... a dozen cats. I also completed my Chakras Playlist. At 78 compositions, it's a bit longer than I anticipated, but the goal is to enjoy only one set per week. Root: fear, loneliness, depression, perseverance, hope, gratitude. Sacral: guilt, betrayal, acceptance, unconditional love, sexuality. Solar Plexus: manipulation, unworthiness, rejection, confidence, enlightenment, freedom, power. Heart: guilt, abandonment, commitment, balance, love, compassion, forgiveness. Throat: expression, loyalty, timidity, truth, honesty. Third Eye: dreams, visions, spirits, intuition, dimensions, fantasies, illumination. Crown: connection, union, spirituality, intuition, transformation, transcendence. Old and new; folk to pop to rock - it runs the gamut and I absolutely love it! If you're interested, check it out on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6ymYgZ2bulf_ot8yqiXw9w.
Today would be Day One of Week One, but I am still awaiting delivery of my candles, essential oils, and incense. I am, therefore, going to continue working on my Chakra Balancing Playlist and the course instructions so there will be nothing to interrupt me once I begin!
Just pulled these out of the mailbox. Going to starting cleansing and charging.
Found this at the thrift store yesterday. Think I'm going to paint it brown and add gold leaf.
Decided to buy some incense $4.82 on eBay.
Yesterday I drove to the bank with the radio blaring and realized... I need to make a mix tape for each chakra! I'm not really into spiritual music, so I've got to search through my iTunes. This is my first choice, for the Root chakra. I can't think of anyone else who might appreciate it besides David Hopkins and Mikey Love, lol.
Essential oils $24.97 on eBay.
Scented chakra candles $18.99 on eBay.
These chakra stones cost me $6.99 on Amazon.
I bought blue and purple headbands to wear on my upper chakras, lol.
I bought a journal at the 99 Cents Only Store that reminds me of frequencies.
