Creating Home

Though I generally don't tend to miss people that much, sometimes you just want a hug from someone familiar. That's why it's so important to create sacred space for yourself. I tend to be very floaty and ungrounded, going where the wind takes me. I always have to take a moment to see what it is I truly want instead of just going with what's available and actively make that choice. Over time, it gets easier, but having a few grounding reminders and sacred objects given to you by those who care about you and love you can sometimes make all the difference.

From Mom- Lavender pouch, my personal White Light, anaconda tooth necklace,
Ayahuasca patterned bag used as base, green Malachite, candle and base, florida water,
rose quartz, wooden music maker and and her childhood rosary. From D- Labradorite necklace.
 Buddha Rivas got me from Thailand. Turquoise heart Saxon brought back from China.
 Jesus/Mary portrait from Mary. Yarmulke from my Bat Mitzvah from Daddy.

A great shirt I got from the dharma closet at Insight Meditation Society. 

Sometimes you just need some Keenan and Kel!

Just finished my old journal, time to start this one :)

Al, the yoga teacher I've been seeing, asked me if I wanted to teach yoga classes at his studio. I reminded him that I don't have a certification or anything, but he thinks I can do it, is willing to train me and wants me to teach twice a day. He can't keep the schedule he used to (8am and 6pm M-F) because of his job as the manager of a restaurant/bar, but would like to. He'd split the profits with me 60 / 40 I get the 60. He again offered me the place, at 100 soles more than I'm getting here, but it has a spectacular rooftop, is in a great location / safe neighborhood in walking distance to everything, has a blender, coffee grinder, microwave and more. The drawbacks are that the room is smaller with less storage space, its 100 soles more and he's also a nervous, high strung guy that talks too much and kinda puts me on edge. I think I could work for him, but to live with him and have to deal with that energy all the time is a little much. I already felt myself getting short, and I don't want to be like that. Maybe I could ease into living there, if the job calls for it. He's also an American and I want to be as immersed as I can in the Spanish language.

In his neighborhood, I found this beautiful door.

Carved from wood, perfect symmetry, truly a piece of art.

Right now I'm learning how to knit and watching Roman Holiday. Audrey Hepburn makes me feel so happy.

Have a great day you all.
I love you.
