In December I did the Meditative Acts challenge in which I worked with the Deities from the House of Baal. It opened up a lot of workings that I need to get started on and complete. I have this entire year planned out with open months for more workings that may catch my eye, (like these), and other workings that Authors have coming up. I am always down to increase my spiritual productivity.

So in February we are starting Different Forms of Meditation. Here I will be using Yoga in conjunction with Chakra working for mindful exercises that will help me have a better hold onto my physical body, my spiritual body and my mind. Focusing on yoga positions that correlate to the expansion and unfolding of my chakras, having them so I can breathe better, be fully within the moment.

I have wanted to do more with my chakras and to also start doing Yoga. So what better way to incorporate these two then with this new challenge. So I have my Yoga Anatomy book that I am choosing which poses to do for the next 28 days, and my Eastern Body Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self by Anodea Judith. I absolutely love this book! These 2 books are the main ones, in addition to my own personal research, that I will be using for next months challenge.

Stay tuned.

I remember I picked this boo up last year, like in September of so and after reading a few pages I sat it back down. I didn’t want to read another A&P book. And my first thought was this is another damn textbook and I am burnt out from school. But I decided to give it another go after asking my boyfriend which yoga book I should read. He choose this one and I figured, hey, why not give it a shot again. I am glad I did.

I only have a year of A&P under my belt and I did find it a little distracting trying to remember all the medical names of the bones and muscles and tendons in the body, and not to mention the terminology for yoga that I am not really familiar with. But that didn’t deter me, I kept on moving forward, flipping back if I needed to see what a word meant.

What I like about this book is that it goes through a pretty in-depth explanation of all the muscles and how they relate to a particular asana. What this book contains is 276 pages, 11 chapters of anatomy and how it relates to the individuals body and the basic principles behind them. Within the 11 chapters 6 of them are divided by asanas (standing, sitting, kneeling, supine, prone and arm support) which makes it easy for me, personally, to figure out which asanas I want to start with and how to divide them up and combine them on certain days of practice.

With the breakdown of how the muscles act with the body I can understand the positions better, being that I am in the medical field and I always want to have good blood flow to the tissues and the rest of my body this was actual a perfect read for me to start my year off with. I will and can be more mindful of how I stretch and what positions I put my body into. Be more cautious of pulling or pushing myself, and understanding it isn’t about touching my forehead to the floor, but more about giving my spine the stretch that it needs. I can also focus more on my breathing when it comes to certain positions and how to really breathe correctly.

I took quite a few notes from this book, and with a couple weeks practice, I will have a very easy , and body friendly yoga practice that I can commit to and not overdo. I have a tendency to overdo things. A lot lol.  I have always wanted to do yoga and this book was the perfect stepping stone for me to start my practice.

I totally recommend this book if you want to understand how the muscles in your body and bones and breathing work with one another in your different asanas.

#domagic Day 20

Posted in Rituals, Workings and all my thinking's on the Occult with tags , , , , on 12/20/2017 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

Not that many more days to go and I am loving all the messages and the feelings and vibes I have been receiving. I have new meditations and techniques, new paths and workings to explore and pick back on, so this has been a wonderful; if not emotional ass challenge so far.

My meditation was with the Hogyoku. The black sphere that is one of many foundations of the House of Baal.  Chanting Nuk the Philosopher’s Stone I just let it take me away. During the meditation, i felt the sphere come undo, unlock like the cube from Hellraiser. I know right, pretty dope. But this sphere held fluid that was alive. It was connected to me, and it rolled up my arm and formed a second skin. Warming my arms, having me feeling mesmerized by the feel and the look of it. The sphere was constantly turning and moving, yet it stayed still the whole time. It was amazing to look at and to feel the energy and power pouring out of it.

The card I drew was To the Sea, reminding me that I can always just rides the waves when the road is blocked and find another way around.

Tarot Challenge Day 6

What I need to let go of?
Prudence, 8 of disks. This has to be how I am in the lab and in situations where I have no control and just have to do what I consider subpar work. Though I’m told all the times it isn’t I do act this way and it is a flat of mine. But I strive for perfection so I have to try to do what needs to be done the way others want it and save the perfectionist for my own personal research and development .

Why did need to let it go?

Prince of Wands. My hit temper and determination to get things done in the way I see is off putting. I will have others feel like I know more than them when I dobt, I just have a mind for organization and productivity that automatically starts calculations and moving things around . I see the possibilities and I just go in an excuse them. Again it will be difficult to dial it down, but it will be held onto unless I am expressed asked, or when I have my own lab and area, and my own production .

How long did I hang on to this?

13, The Devil. For freaking ever lmao! It’s in my DNA and I will let go of the rigns, but the devil in me continues to play the advocate when people need to step their shit up.

3rd eye Spread Day 16

Man I am halfway through with this challenge. It has actually been amazing. i have been pulling some of the same cards, and then when I pull a new card, it always pack a whammy. Talk about putting me on my ass. My chakras are actually still holing up, even though I still have some work to do, but hey that is to be expected so I am totally fine with that.

1 water, 2 earth, 1 fire, and 1 trump. Seems to be expected so I am pleased with this elemental makeup, like I have been with all the others. I tell you, going back and putting these all into play is going to be a bitch. I have my 6 month Tarot spread written down on my calendars for their perspective months so that should be interesting. That means once I am finished this challenge this deck will not be put back together until next year. Don’t worry, I have 2 more to break in lol

Current state, what is blocking, messages form my dreams and intuition have for me, skills that need to be harnessed and worked on, outcome of chakra after connecting to wisdom.
