Sometimes, you just feel cold. Here are some things you can do to warm yourself up!Continue reading Tips For People Who Are Always Cold
While it may seem self-serving to do a “about me” post, I think that I’m important enough to share some of my core values with my dear readers.
After all, if we are to trust each other… Or, if you are to trust me to bring you accurate information… Then keeping it real about my personal views is non-negotiable.
I do want to say that I have deep love for Easy Light Sources readers and supporters. You guys keep me inspired and you’re Easy Light Sources for me, just as I provide Easy Light Sources for you!
It may seem like I’ll only talk about my good qualities but in the effort of being transparent, I’ll also provide the “down side”, if any, to the following 3 personality traits.
Okay, here we go!
NUMBER 1 –
This Star Believes That Anything is Possible!
Some ideas seem so far fetched that it’s easy to dismiss it as impossible.
I don’t really live in the realm of impossibility.
While I may not have the physical means to create whatever it is, I’ll go there with you.
Whatever topic you being to me, I’ll go there with you.
I enjoy talking about stuff and I learn some thing every time.
The downside to this is that I don’t always have the thought energy to do this.
When my son asks me a million “what if the grass was lava” questions, I don’t always have a creative answer for him.
But I will have a realistic answer. That’s just not always fun.
Either way, I guess what I’m trying to say is that yes, I do believe in magic.
NUMBER 2 –
Getting Enough Rest Is Top Priority
Yeah, sleep is an Easy Light Source. No doubt about it, no doubt at all.
But I’m talking about more than sleep, real quick.
And also, “enough rest” is different for everyone. And rest requirements mean different things at different times.
But whatever it is, getting enough of it is essential to being at peak life effectiveness.
Not only do you stay sharp, you also learn new things when you’re allowed time to really unwind.
If you do want to talk about sleep, it’s no secret that I do love sleeping.
Someone asked me what was my favorite thing to do and I answered “sleep”. Perhaps that’s an odd answer but I haven’t found a better way to relax.
Only through sleeping am I really able to rest completely.
Unless, of course, my dreams are particularly active.
Dreams though, they are also an interesting experience. I have big opinions on them which I purposely keep off of EasyLightSources.org.
But if you’re into it, dream interpretation of symbols can be pretty insightful.
The downside to needing so much rest is that I am at a disadvantage when I don’t get enough sleep.
Not sleeping enough pulls down my immune system into depths that are not cured by simply getting enough sleep.
When I sleep and take naps, I can come off as lazy – especially by those who don’t know who I am and what my purpose is.
And also, I can be a little cranky when I didn’t get enough rest.
But, I will say that sleep deprivation has a big and specific advantage for me. As long as it doesn’t go on for longer than…say.. 3 days.
NUMBER 3 –
I Struggle With Being A Leader
There is a big amount of confidence
That comes with leadership.
Something I’ve noticed is that a real leader leads no matter what. Intentionally or not.
It’s not always about telling people what to do.
For me, sometimes I’ve noticed that I can do something weird for a very specific reason…. But instead of it being a one-off situation, my behavior will be emulated for some odd reason.
That’s happened enough for me to check my own behavior more often. I won’t do certain things if I wouldn’t want someone to copy me.
All of this happened before I became a mom. But now that I have a son, I am more conscious of it than ever. It’s one thing for adults to copy me but when it comes to children, their consciousness is more impressionable and that carries a responsibility.
The downside obviously is that it’s annoying to do something and then have everyone else think that they can do it too.
Although, because of this, I should feel more confident stepping up when I need to. When a situation obviously needs someone to offer an example of guidance, if I should feel comfortable offering that guidance.
Maybe I will someday soon.
Thanks for reading, you guys!
Peace you guys 🎃
Around this time of the year, pumpkins are all over the place. They’re in patches, in just about every department of the grocery store.. I think I even saw a gun with pumpkin spice bullets. No lie. Is it getting out of control?
No way! Pumpkins (and other squash) are good for us 🙂 make a meal of it and you’ll have a healthy dose of anti-oxidants to last through the week 🎃
Something else awesome about pumpkin season? We all have permission to over use this emoji 🎃🎃🎃
There’s a post coming up soon about some good fall recipes (plant-based, of course!)
To get properly ready for it, you gotta know how to cut a pumpkin. No canned stuff over here! (Well maybe a little because there was a can of organic pumpkin on sale for one dollar!) 🎃
Here’s a video I made showing how I slice a very manageable sized pie pumpkin.
And also with a bonus that no one asked for!: my thoughts on Halloween/All Hallows Eve :)🎃 enjoy ⬇⬇⬇
Sleep is a deeper form of meditation. Sleeping gives your mind and body time to rest and heal while at peace.
If your dreams are sound, you’ll wake up refreshed, renewed, and ready.
If you don’t dream, don’t worry about it.
If you wake up feeling drained from your dreams, hmeditation is the answer.
Sleep is one of the easiest light sources!
Getting enough sleep is an essential ingredient to thinking clearly, feeling energized naturally, inner peace, patience, happiness, and more.
Going to bed early is a gift you give yourself.
Drink a glass of water before you consume anything else when you wake up.
Waking up early is also a good idea but it’s not always EASY.
Please be careful with sleep aids. While they will force-shut down your mind,
Being able to fall asleep is a valuable skill to have.
Anxiety, insomnia, etc are disorders. It’s not okay if you feel bad because of those things. Be careful what energies you claim into your life experience. Don’t give in. You can overcome anything.
