Lady Moon

A new moon hails blessings and new beginnings, she brings forth great spiritual happenings. Take this opportunity and write down the intentions that you want manifested in your life. Whilst holding on to those intentions, visualise a shedding of the excessive weight that been holding you back and meditate intently. Invoke the energies of change and new beginnings.

My spiritual compass is charged today and dedicated this sketch to our lady the moon. We are all seeds of the universe, watered with immeasurebale love and light. Today is your chance to rise from your ashes and like the Phoenix, soar above your adversities.

Infinite love and light.

Why I practice critical thinking?

When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons.”
― Anaïs Nin

You wake up, begin your morning rituals, commute to work, plough through your tasks and eventually retreat to your nesting place. To some this is satisfactory as it provides stability, regulairty and the comfort of a fixed routine. While to others, it is perceived as monotonous, unexcitable and spiritually exhausting. So, what’s the solution? How will you extract yourself from the dogmas of the matrix? Get yourself a daily dose of critical thinking.

Since the moment we began our contact with the external world, we were fuelled by our inquisitive nature. Infants explore their alien surroundings, deciphering the abstract forms they  come across and deliberating how much more they can explore; our innate nature to seek knowledge. Unfortunately, the system that is currently in place puts a cap on our conscious expansion and we conform to the blueprint they set out for us. These restrictions have lead to the numbing of our consciousness and the fear of questioning the ‘norm‘. Robert Anthony quoted that “the opposite of bravery is not cowardice but conformity“, therefore it is not surprising to see why so many choose to comply; the fear of rebellion is a greater risk.

You are an infinite being of consciousness; a vessel of intangible power. 

It is within you to view the world critically, to question the taboo and approach that which is unapproachable. Indoctrinate yourself with love, humility and defiance against repelling forces. Pause from your daily duties and diverge yourself in a question, perhaps you will never find an answer. That question branches out into veins of subquestions and tantalising curiosity; you are unlocking your consciousness.  Begin to network with those who exchange your energy and witness the evolution of your knowledge. Critical thinking gives you the platform to enhance your mind and spirit, it is activating what is already within you and assess the concept of ‘certainty’.

 

‘Selfie’-love

You scan through your old photos, looking at how much you’ve changed since your 12th birthday and remembering the days when tattoo chokers and paisley bandanas ‘shot’ up your ‘fashion game’ (well, at least in my case…). Flicking through the photos you start to accumulate flashbacks of embarrassing moments, classroom crushes and the time you were convinced fame was calling for you. However, like most of us, you will also remember the struggles you went through; the battle of loving yourself.

Our animalistic traits are primarily responsible for our desire to attain beauty. We see it across the animal kingdom, a well known example are peacocks fluttering their brightly coloured feathers in order to attract a mate. Amongst humans, the culture of seeking validation has grown rapidly since the introduction of social apps e.g. twitter, instagram and so on. They are in an essence, attracting validation from others in order to give themselves certainty and solidity that they are indeed attractive. It could be argued that this is a form of an addiction, the constant need to be approved by others rather than yourself. Furthermore, it could be said that this has stemmed from deep rooted issues that can be traced back a primary source/s. Expanding on that point, there might have been a time in your life where you saw yourself reflecting the life of someone else who you deemed to be more attractive, popular, loved etc… You then begin to use that individual as your blueprint, stripping away the layers of you.

You are worthy of self-praise, self-affection and self-admiration. Every flaw you see amplifies your distinctive beauty and adds to your mysticism. Go ahead and take that selfie, gaze at your omnipotent beauty that vibrates from your core. Self love is a battle, you are not expected to chant ‘I love myself’ everyday because you are entitled to feel down. Insecurity is nothing to be ashamed of, it reminds you that you will rise again and tread over its ashes, like the rebirth of a Phoenix.

Love and light,
