Full Moon Ritual

A full moon is such a special time that should be taken advantage of! As new moons are meant to let go and begin anew, a full moon is when your truest self surfaces and you have the great possibility to reap the benefits of the goals you’ve met within this moon cycle. A full moon is nothing to be ignored and seen as just the sky being a little brighter that night, so here are some ways that I use a full moon to my benefit and how I will be using it this weekend.   It is spiritually…

Traveling Washington 101 North (Temperate Rainforests, Ruby Beach and Cape Flattery)

Though I’ve lived at the bottom of the Washington coast all my life, last weekend was the first time I drove all the way up 101 North. We’ve just about traveled all of the 101 highway now, and Washington’s coast is not much short of Oregon’s. We took advantage of good winter weather and traveled from South Bend, WA, up 101 all the way to the most northwestern tip of the United States, Cape Flattery. Of course we stopped at some destinations along the way, and all of them were amazing, where the temperate rainforests of Washington meet with the…

The Importance Of Taking A Day Off For Yourself

For the past few months I have been going to war with myself as to whether or not I could afford to take a day off during the week, not to do anything particular, but just to have a day to myself. The weekends always tend to fill up with checklists and when your in a relationship, those days are spent tackling tasks together and sometimes it is nice to have a day all to yourself. Well, I finally took that day off and it was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a long time. I…

Creating An Aura Of Peace

Everyone has different methods to find they’re own peace. But if you are ready to experiment deeper methods, there are many different herbs, meditations and crystals that are spiritually believed to elevate peaceful vibrations. I use these methods regularly to keep myself at a peaceful, spiritual level and I would love to share some with you. There are many actions that can promote tranquility, for me, setting a peaceful aura and writing is calming. Meditation is always the most effective in my humble opinion, but whether your reading, writing, meditating or anything in between, the entire atmosphere around you can effective…

Sometimes Getting Lost Is The Right Direction

I’d be lying if I told you that the travelling lifestyle is all, as my stepmother called it, “hippie flowers and butterflies.” We have our worries just like anyone else, our worries are simply much different, consisting of where we will sleep tonight, the cheapest option for gas and finding the right directions. After driving about 30 minutes in the wrong direction, we had to turn around and retrack our path. For any of you who do not know, we do not have a phone plan, we rely entirely on maps, which normally is not an issue, but yesterday it…

The Art Of Contentment

I think that the time someone sets aside for their peace of mind says a lot about a person. Too often do I hear people complain day to day about how stressful their lives are, for all sorts of different reasons. And yet, I don’t see anyone making a change in able to lessen that stress. Maybe they think it’ll solve itself, maybe they think they’re hopeless. Or maybe it’s because stress has quit literally become a habit of mankind. You see, when you continually complain and talk about your stressful life, you just feed off that negative energy, you…
