I like to be Alone...


People say that being more at one with yourself makes you more spiritually aware and in a sense closer to God. I don’t know about all that, but I do enjoy my alone time. Sometimes my alone time is just a quick 20-30 minutes to write or watch something on TV.

Lately I find myself watching less and less TV—and I’m fine with that. Don’t’ get me wrong every now and then I might have a two-day Netflix binger…other than that I’m over it. I feel like so many of us spend all our spare time watching television, mainly reality TV. Wake up people! Stop watching other people live their lives—GO LIVE YOURS. Seriously, take that extra hour for self-care, read that book you’ve been wanting to read for 8 months. I don’t know about you guys, but I want to be in tune with me. I want to be at a constant state of mental and emotional clarity. TV doesn’t get my creative juices going, it kind of does the opposite. I watch one lifetime movie and 3 hours later---the day is gone. No more. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older, but I’d rather spend more time working on me—than watching some of the nonsense on TV.

These past few months I’ve really been trying to focus on meditation and not just sitting crisscross applesauce (pardon my mom vernacular) and Omming to myself. I mean taking a 10-20-minute break each day to use that time to reflect, or relax, or whatever. Before I begin each meditation, I think about what I’m looking to accomplish by the end of that session. If I’m super anxious I use the meditation to do a mindfulness exercise to relieve my anxiety and reduce stress. If I’m angry, my goal is to use the time to reflect on good vibes, things that make me happy. Sometimes I just play whatever music I’m in the mood for, always instrumental—sometimes just a rain sound or Zen music playing to set the stage for my alone time. I’m still fine-tuning my technique but at this point, all that matter is I see a change. I notice that my 0-100 is more of a 0-50 now. I love that I feel like I’m in control of my hot-temper and anxiety.

This month I’ll be working natural stones into my meditation routine. From what I’ve read, having a stone or crystal within arm’s reach during meditation can help you focus and maintain clarity while you reflect. I believe in the healing powers of natural oils and natural crystals of the earth. I will be incorporating the rose quartz, amethyst and turquoise. in future meditation.

Amethyst is known for its healing power, having an ability to stimulate your crown chakra, help clam thoughts and be more in tune with your emotions.

Turquoise to me is like the goddess of healing, the stone has the ultimate healing powers.

Rose Quartz like amethyst, provides clarity and positive energy.

So far my mediation journey has been successful, I feel more in touch with my emotions. I’m learning to step back from frustration situations and breath—regain focus and get back in there. Each day is a growing process, but I think meditation may be the most fulfilling and inexpensive tool to manage my anxiety and depression. I’ve been having a great month, but I take each day in stride, staying spiritually focused and hopeful.
