Restorative yoga & part Lion / Astanga / adlib, seated meditation

Posted a day late b/c I went out for dinner right after finishing my 1hr, 20min session. I started off with 7min of timed poses, and then I switched to my ad lib vinyasa. I wanted to do more than I did, like with back bending & such, but I basically made standing extra long, with a lot of added variations & binds, & then … Continue reading Restorative yoga & part Lion / Astanga / adlib, seated meditation

Magick, Mediation, Motivation – or lack thereof

Magick & Meditation Month was pretty much a bust I don’t feel like I accomplished anything and, in fact, I have regressed terribly in terms of other kinds of personal discipline, like exercise. What I was most hoping was that daily ritual would – yes “magically” – help my real life efforts in the interminable struggle to make ANY sort of money in Godforsaken Podunk. That … Continue reading Magick, Mediation, Motivation – or lack thereof

More on Mudras – Magick & Meditation Month

I mentioned a few days ago I’d started reading this book on mudras. I’ve pretty much finished it, the relevant parts anyway. I’ll return it on my next visit to the library As I mentioned on Insta 3 days ago, I started practicing a new hand mudra during my seated meditation, Pran Mudra. View this post on Instagram Card of the Day: 4 of disks, … Continue reading More on Mudras – Magick & Meditation Month

Mornings are good though

Such an aimless existence. Every morning I wake up slowly, but my first interactions are always positive. Cats! I usually get pillow cuddles from at least one of them, then I get up and get my coffee fixings. I feed them upstairs. I’d have to sit on the toilet in the downstairs bathroom with them if I didn’t, to keep track of who eats what … Continue reading Mornings are good though

Researching Sock Companies

I was totally bummed out by being on Mississippi and downtown yesterday. The best time I had was at a plant nursery that had some great arrangements and some gorgeous chickens, wandering around their courtyard. I spent mere minutes at my destination and then got back on bus 4 for downtown. There is no THERE, there Well duh – when in or near Portland, just stick to … Continue reading Researching Sock Companies

I had a drama-ridden full moon yesterday

Not in a pleasant way, unfortunately! It was a lovely day and things had been going so smoothly, but then… I made the fatal mistake of sharing some beer and a salad I’d prepared, after having forgotten a small amount of cat litter on the table outside. It’d been mentioned once, but until very recently it’d been too cool to eat outside, and the amount … Continue reading I had a drama-ridden full moon yesterday

(half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, w some yoga

Previewed some of this recently. I only wanted a short WO today though, and not too taxing – warm it up & stretch it out. I had limited time & wanted to conserve some artistic energy / personal prana. This might sound funny, but both driving and using my oil paints are both so mentally challenging I had to save room for it! I’m still … Continue reading (half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, w some yoga

Meditation and Creative Inspiration

I slept in today, which I really needed. Got out of bed at 8:30. Of course this comes with earlier wake-ups from dreams and the kitties, but I dropped back off again every time. Meditation is the bomb I get the best ideas while I’m sitting, when of course I am attempting to focus on an inward, non-verbal attention. A particular meditation practice in Bardon’s Initiation … Continue reading Meditation and Creative Inspiration
