Last Monday I attended a Crystal Meditation at a local New Age store. It was my first crystal meditation in a group and it was amazing. It was just what I needed after the hard weekend I had just had. I was in the perfect place at the perfect time. I really needed my chakras balanced. I did a chakra meditation on my own a couple times using one of these (can’t remember which one it was), but the one I did Monday was so good b/c I’m not very good at meditating on my own, although I keep trying. I plan on attending one group event a month from one of 2 local new age shops. This feels very spiritually fulfilling to me right now. Ahhhhhh.
I took 3 naps today. I feel like taking another one now….wait a minute, that would just mean going to sleep for the night. LOL. I think I really needed the sleep today. It was raining hard on and off too so it was perfect. I got some of housework done some how in between as well: scrubbed the soap layers off the glass shower doors in 2 bathrooms, folded several loads of laundry, went grocery shopping and cooked up a pork chop dinner.
Oh, in between my naps, I watched “The Day the Earth Stood Still”, the recent remake of the 1951 film, not that I ever saw the original.
It was OK. The premise of the movie has Keannu Reeves playing an alien sent to save the Earth…from the humans that are destroying it. Keannu is so good at playing roles where no emotion is necessary. 😉 However, his character said a line that resonated with the scientist in me: “Nothing ever truly dies. The universe wastes nothing. Everything is simply, transformed.” I tell this to my students all the time quoting the “Law of Conservation of Energy”. I love it when science meshes neatly with the spiritual like that. That seems to be happening more and more often now.
I also squeezed in watching a show about the Crystal Skulls today. Amazing artifacts, those are.
Hmmm, I spent $41.53 food shopping for the week and saved $51.54 using my coupons. Weeeee. That $41 included a 20 lb. bag of premium dog food too! I get so excited about my grocery shopping trips and the money I save.
