Confessions of a Curly Ginger

I’m a 24 year old mother of a magnificent, intelligent baby girl. I’m an eternal student, working in my very first archives job while I finish my Masters degree in Library Science/Archives. I’m an adventurer, always looking for a way to expand my consciousness. I read, I write, I eat, I sing. I’m a history professional. I’m in love with a boy who makes me laugh.

#SpiritOfTheTotem Day 17— Buffalo

"Rumbling like thunder
O’er the prairie,
Great herds of abundance,
sharing with man,
I need your knowledge to meet life’s challenges,
To survive and move on with my plans.”

Word.

Sky above me. Earth below me. Fire within me.

#SpiritOfTheTotem Day 16— Snake

The snake is powerfully connected to life force and primal energy. In many cultures, it is revered as a powerful totem representing the source of life. When the snake appears in your life, it likely means that healing opportunities, change, important transitions, and increased energy are manifesting.

#TulaYogi Day 16— Eka Pada Rajakapotasana//Bound Squatting Pigeon Pose

I actually was surprised that I could do this haha… my head is in a good place, and I can definitely see it in my practice.

#Intentful with @treehouseohm Day 9— Lizard, though I decided to take a picture of my pranayama pose instead because it was exactly what I needed tonight.

This had been such a beautiful offering from @treehouseohm and @classictone. My soul has been touched and expanded by the words, and my soul has been strengthened by the pranayama and poses. These past few weeks have been rough for me—coordinating babysitters, Zak working extra hard with his solar panel company, house chores, mom stuff… The list could go on and on if I let it overwhelm me haha.

This offering served as not just a reset for my practice, but for my whole attitude and it permeated into my day to day life. When I finally got out for a run this weekend, I found myself practicing zen breathing. At work, when my anxiety was getting control, I went to the floor in child’s pose to regroup. I found myself utilizing other pranayama in traffic or at the store… It was amazing how easily it all slides into place!

Thank you, thank you to you both for your hearts in this. And thank you to the glorious humans behind your sponsors @bethebreath @buddha_pants @stealtimeback.
