These days we are all caught up in working the 9 to 5 jobs and trying to pay off the bills and other miscellaneous things that seem to pile up in our daily lives. With our heads focused on the screens before us, focused on what is going at work and taking care of others, we seem to forget the one person that we need to focus on as well…ourselves. In past posts I’ve talked about how everyone needs to slow down and learn how to take care of themselves so that they are able to have a long adventure filled life, and this time is no exception. However, this post has to do with finding ourselves instead of healing ourselves. Yes, healing is a major thing that we must all partake in, and I am constantly trying to heal myself on a daily basis with the help of Doreen Virtue and my amazing cousin Chris. But to find yourself and to figure out who you am, you have to venture down the path that was created for you from the day you were born.
Twenty five years ago in the last month of Autumn I was born. For the first few months of my life, I lived with my mum and my granny in a small house in a Podunk town called Picher. Those two women had begun to instill the knowledge that has been residing in my mind since I was born. My granny being the wisest and the most sassiest woman in the world taught me a few things that has stayed with me while I was growing up. She taught me the ways of my ancestral cooking, herbs, and how to take care of the earth and of myself. She began to instill the magic that she wished to pass onto me, I was the first born of the fifth generation and she wished to leave some of her old magic with me. Which I’m truly grateful for. My mum, that woman has done so much for me it is hard to even make a list of all the things she has done for not only me but for my younger brother and our friends. My mum went through the heartache of losing my twin brother but she knows that he is spending time with our granny and others who have passed on. My mum has passed on her wisdom and knowledge of our Druid ancestry. Now it is 2016, and in November I will be turning 25 years old. Each day and each year I learn more and more about myself. My style of love is soul, the soul of a person is what intrigues me and I fall for that person’s soul more than I do with the body. And thanks to my cousin Chris, my ways of thinking have changed and matured in the ways of not only love but everything in life. The home is where I can be truly myself. Frolicking through the gardens as I prepare my herbs, vegetables and fruits for harvest is one of the places I love to be. In the kitchen where I can bake gluten-free (allergic) breads, desserts, and meals is where I can throw my own magic into. Herbal remedies that I have accumulated over the years reside in my box along side the family recipes. A healer and creator, for the words on a paper I turn into a poem, a novel, or a song; a healer for I wish to help others achieve a healthy relationship with themselves, others, and with food. I know that my own ultimate goal on this path of mine is to achieve spiritual enlightenment and find one true love, I can feel it in my heart, soul and mind.
If you don’t take the time to get to know yourself, you will never realize that there are things you are doing that are jeopardizing yourself in the present time that will have repercussions in the future. What is it that your heart aches for? What is it that your soul earns for? What is your type of love; is it mind, body, soul? Where do you feel at home? Do you wish to follow your passions and dreams? What is the path that you are on? Do you have any idea as to where it will take you, or do you know the ultimate goal? Can you sit there looking at the screen reading this answer all of these questions that I have asked you and truly answer them without any hesitations or fears of seeing what you harbor deep inside of you? To know yourself and know what exactly it is that you want, then congratulations you have taken the next step on this path of yours. For the next couple of months, I want each and every one of you to sit down for at least twenty to thirty minutes every night, write down what it is you seek and what it is that you wish to achieve. If you do this, you will find out more about yourself and you will suddenly start to see things come together and you will see another step in your path has been taken and you will soon be able to take another step.
