I was finally motivated and feeling well enough to take down all our holiday decorations. Ugh... I was so sick of seeing them. Not too mention I felt so suffocated. I can't stand clutter or knick-knacks. But I have 8 boxes of decorations for the holiday season. It gets to be too much for me. Although... I love decorating.
After I put everything away I realized how much stagnet energy was clinging to our home. Its no wonder we were all a bit cranky. So after the eldest got home from school I gave him a set of bongos and we went through the house together. We had an energy clearing conga line going! He settled into a wonderful rythym and we came up with a neat little song to go along with his beats.
Afterward the feel of the house was so amazing. I encourage you to include your children. As soon as the baby is old enough to follow along with us he will have a set of shakers so he can join in as well.
Speaking of including your kids... the eldest and I have a new bedtime ritual. Every night I test and teach him about stones/gems/crystals. We have only been doing this about a week but he already knows the name, colors, and properties of Clear Quartz, Red Jasper, Hematite, Amethyst, Tourmaline, and Tiger's Eye. Apparently, he has a knack for it.
My children's interest in what I do, my beliefs, and need to participate in everything amazes me more and more everyday. I never push anything on them, which makes their desire to learn and be actively involved all the more wonderful!
I'm currently working on a new spell book. And considering I didn't have a whole lot of time yesterday to do it, I need to get to work!
