On the Path to a New Life

Another weekend come and gone, in the blink of an eye. I tell you what after two long weeks of difficulties and trials, the days are starting to finally separate. And I am another step closer to becoming Vegan! (I can’t believe how hard it is to change your eating habits after 20 years of eating certain foods)
However, because the last two weeks have felt like a grueling and continuous day, the normal inner balance I felt, was way out-of-wack and did I need a recharge now more than ever.
This was when I thought that I would turn to meditation and see if this would help me gain balance back “In the force”. Although, I thought that I was going to need something a bit more deeper than a simple ten minute meditation. Then I remembered seeing something awhile back on Pinterest called Chakra Meditation.

I previously heard about Chakras from Avatar: The Last Airbender (Oh yeah, it is one of my favorite shows of ALL time :3) but at the time, I didn’t quite understand the true power that it holds. To be perfectly honest, I thought that it was something made up at the time (I learned the error of my ways, I am only human.)
After watching many YouTube videos and reading a few articles on Chakras, I thought that one day I would try it if I ever needed it.
Guess what? I needed it. Like I said, the last two weeks have been insane, and I was and still am, physically and emotionally tired. I needed to refocus. That’s when I downloaded a walkthrough on Cleansing Your Chakras and gave it a shot. I felt so relaxed and at peace, I thought I was going to fall asleep. (Try not to fall asleep during meditation, it is easy to do, but I don’t want you or me to meet someone from Texas who ends up teasing me about it) (Movie reference)
I came out of it feelings more focused, more confident, and at peace then I have in the past weeks, even before the last two weeks. I then decided that I would make meditations a part of my life on a regular basis. It will take some getting used to, but I am willing to work on it.
Starting tomorrow, I am going to begin the moving progress and help get things prepared for my family to move. My life is heading up a new mountain now, and I am excited to climb it 🙂
