Mandala Coloring Book

Mandala Coloring Book 2

1151426n6

Ever think of coloring as an adult? Every think of coloring as meditation? I’ve benefited from coloring to quiet my mind when I get stressed. It improves my focus and relaxes my whole body.

Benefits of coloring for adults:
  • Your brain enters a focused meditative state. Much like gazing at a candle but more active than that. 
  • Stress and anxiety levels have the potential to be lowered.
  • Negative thoughts release and positive feeling and emotions have room to grow.
  • Keeps you in the “now”. In the present which helps you attain mindfulness.
  • Unplugging from technology promotes creation over consumption
  • It’s an inexpensive way to add art and creativity into your life.
  • It can be a relaxed social gathering.
  • It’s portable!
How to Color a Mandala:

It’s easy!

  1. You will need crayons, pencil crayons, chalks, pastels, paint, or markers in a variety of colors.
  2. Print a mandala or stop at any dollar store, book store or craft shop and purchase a coloring book. You can find a ton on amazon.com too!
  3. Find a quiet and comfortable place where you can work comfortably with no distractions. You can even increase the meditative qualities by finding a spot in a nature where you won’t be disturbed. Here you can take in the scents and sounds while you create your art. 
  4. Color!

Try not to think too much about what colors you choose, or what’s matchy matchy. Let your instincts guide you. After you begin with the first color, the rest will follow naturally. Susan F. Fincher, the author of numerous mandala coloring books, says, “One color on the mandala invites another, like a guest who asks to bring his friend to your party.”

Oracle Reading For Monday 4/22

South Node – “Don’t let your past hold you back”

Is there any issues with past karma? Old karma, maybe years ago? Or even another lifetime? If you’re stuck. If you feel like you can’t move forward in something; a job, relationship, goal, task, etc…, past karma may be holding you back. Karma that’s maybe turned outward with things like overeating, smoking, other addictions, or even a toxic relationship. Past karma can come back to haunt you by repeating patterns of toxicity, over and over again until that past karma is resolved. This can point to obsessions. This card is calling for changes. Changes in these behaviors and for you to recognize it. 

Repeating behaviors that have not helped you achieve your goals are only going to keep repeating. You need a new focus, different actions. In many cases you may need to release the thing you obsess over that causes you to be stuck in limbo. 

If there are past retributions you can clear up; such as an apology that was never given, don’t you think it’s time to do so? If there is past karma that you still have the ability to clear, this is the sign you need to get it done!

ps….sorry the lighting and photo are bad. Busy day but I knew I wanted to start these readings today so I just hurried the photo.

The While We’re Here Bucket List

We added and updated the list!!

We just moved from Virginia Beach, VA to the Jersey Shore this past December. My blog turned into a ghost town since the move and all while I was trying to revamp the blog . But we’ve been super busy moving, unpacking, 2 sick furbabies and just settling in and dealing with the winter blues for the first time in a long long time. But finally spring is starting to creep in and our kitties are feeling better so I thought it was time to dust off the blog and get back at it!

We will be here in New Jersy about 3 years sooooo we started making our New Jersey Bucket List!! We want to make the most out of the time we have here with as many adventures in NJ, New York and even the Philadelphia area of PA that we can.

Visit New Jersey

welcome.jpg

Lot’s of hiking! New Jersey has quite a few great areas for hiking. Looking forward to autumn hikes the most and hope to get in some of the Appalachian trail (think, Stairway to Heaven)!! The Appalachian Trail is gorgeous during the autumn months! Top 10 Hikes In New Jersey If you are into hiking, High Point State Park supposedly has nice loop hikes incorporating the AT trail through it. Plus it is the highest point in NJ which means some beautiful views during the fall season!

Beach hop. We want to spend time all along the Jersey Shore and maybe a bit up into New York checking out the different beaches and beach towns! We’ve kind of started as you’ve seen by some of my last blogs. Of course it’s been way too cold to get in real beach/ocean time or to see how crazy crowded the Jersey Shore beaches can get during tourist season. All 44 beaches in New Jersey, ranked worst to best

Daily fitness/nutrition goals. Can we say, slackers?? Between the move and my hubby traveling for work our nutrition and fitness has kind of gone down the toilet so to speak. So now it’s time to get our act together. This will include lots of hiking, yoga, and Les Mills programs. This much we figured out before the move, the combo of these three things WORKS to add strength while making us lean and fit. My hubs will add a bit of running in there because it’s required for his job but I decided I prefer race walking and hiking. I’m a faster walker than runner and I enjoy it so much more! But of course no amount of exercise matters if nutrition sucks. Our plan is Vegetarian/Flexitarian Mediterranean nutrition plan. 30 day free trial Les Mills On Demand: sign up for a new LES MILLS On Demand subscription. On that page click the green text “Redeem Promo Code”, paste the code in and click apply. Your code is: supinesubstance57
The page will refresh and a hidden promotion with a 30-day free trial will show. Once you complete the sign up process, you will automatically receive 30 days’ free access to LES MILLS on Demand. **Terms and Conditions: Extended free trial is for 30 days and is redeemable for new subscribers only. Not valid to past trialists or current subscribers.

See Hamilton on Broadway! Yes, it’s expensive, and yes we will get the least expensive we can get lol, but it’s something we both want to experience. And maybe a few others too like Cats and Phantom. Broadway.com

Photograph a walking tour of New York city. I want to soak up as much of the city as we can. I’ve always been a city girl and could see myself living there. But this city girl is married to a suburban kind of guy. And I agree in part because I can’t wait to have a garden and a yard for our future dog to play in!! New York City: The Official Guide

Yankees game(s)!! I LOVE baseball and the hubs is ok with it (he’s not a big sports guy). I’ve been a Yankees fan since I was little, even while growing up in Ohio near Indians (I wish they’d change the name already) stadium and going to Indians games. So we gotta go, even if I’m in the bleachers or nose bleed seats! MLB New York Yankees

Bronx Zoo…As I get more and more into the issues animals face, while wishing they could thrive in the wild, let’s face it we are eating up and destroying all the wild spaces! Most of my adult life I’ve been anti zoo and anti captivity. And while that still stands true for the most part. I can also be honest enough to admit we at times are fighting a losing battle to keep the animals safe and safe from extinction. One day zoos may be the only real safe zones for them. So I am a zoo advocate while still being a harsh critic of zoos. They need to do more, they need to actually keep them safe and not exploit them. They need to help the species to survive and thrive and not just for profit or human amusement. So we like to visit zoos to see how they rate as far as concern for their residents. *The Bronx Zoo opened November 8, 1899. The Bronx Zoo is a zoo located within Bronx Park in the Bronx, a borough of New York City. It is one of the largest zoos in the United States by area, comprising 265 acres (107 ha) of park lands and naturalistic habitats separated by the Bronx River. On average, the zoo has 2.15 million visitors each year. The Bronx Zoo is world-renowned for its large and diverse animal collection, and its award-winning exhibitions.[5] The zoo is part of an integrated system of four zoos and one aquarium managed by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), and it is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).[6] Bronx Zoo: Saving Wildlife and Wild Places

Bed & Breakfast at Christmas in Cape May. Cape May New Jersey is a little bit magical during the holidays. The little coastal town is lit up with holiday cheer and touches of old fashioned Christmases gone by. Since they have so many century type homes still standing and still taking in guests and residents Christmas touches are just a little extra in the sweet town. Filled with small shops, confections and collectibles it’s the perfect place to welcome the season! I fell in love with Cape May when we first arrived here in December. We went down for trolley rides; one was an old fashioned Christmas ghost story while riding the streets of the town, one was an actual guided tour of the homes  and bed and breakfasts as we were told the rich history of the town. All the homes and B&B’s were decorated with lights and trimmings for the trolley tours. A must see if you’re ever in the area! Cape May

See the Battleship New Jersey. Historical site. USS New Jersey (BB 62) Wikipedia Battleship New Jersey

Visit Atlantic City & The Boardwalk. We already did a bit of this the past week. We wandered the boardwalk and the beach, drove around the city and visited a great little eatery, The Enlightened Cafe which is also a great community outreach. We have tickets to see Piff The Magic Dragon this weekend in Atlantic City. The area tends to pull in loads of great entertainment throughout the year. Atlantic City is mostly known for gambling but neither my hubs or I tare into that.  Atlantic City NJ

Make snow angels! We haven’t seen a lot of snow during our 10 years living in Virginia and when we did we did it didn’t last long. It’s been a long time since I’ve made a snow angel and I plan to make them often during the winter months here. And speaking of snow, maybe some sledding and other winter sport activities while we’re this far north!

Six Flags Great Adventure. We already have season passes. One of the biggest pluses to being in New Jersey is that we are near Keith’s family! We plan many a visit with the fam to Six Flags while we’re here since it’s one of their “go to” spots with our niece and nephew! Added bonus is that we live super close!! Six Flags Great Adventure

Ellis Island & The Statue Of Liberty. This is simply one of those things you just need to see if you’re in or near New York City. History! Ellis Island

Explore Philadelphia! This city is another that’s rich with history. I regret in the entire 10 years we spent in Virginia we never took a trip to Washington DC to soak up all the history. So we don’t plan on skipping that with Philly! The 10 Most Essential Things to Do on Your (First) Visit to Philly

Dig For Herkimer Diamonds!! You can prospect for your own Herkimer Diamonds in Herkimer NY! “Herkimer Diamonds are high vibration crystals, that boost clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities. There’s even a KOA camping resort you can bunker down at! Can’t wait to get my hands dirty!!

Popcorn Park Zoo, speaking of zoos. Popcorn Park Zoo is a small 7-acre zoo. According to the Associated Humane Societies, the zoo is “a sanctuary for abandoned, injured, ill, exploited, abused or elderly wildlife, exotic and farm animals, and birds.”  This is someplace special and I want to celebrate that! Popcorn Park

Paranormal Museum Asbury Park??? Unexplained phenomena, legends, folklore, myths, or are they?? The Paranormal Museum is a storefront and museum, in the tradition of “Roadside America” days gone by attractions. It houses a collection of historical and educational exhibits and just sounds like a heck of a lot of fun! I’m up for the macabre!! Paranormal Museum Asbury Park

Seashell Museum, because beach, sea, shells. I’m all about all things beachy and ocean related so this sounds like a great little day trip!! The Discovery Seashell Museum

Morey’s Piers & Wildwood. Morey’s Piers is a 6-block beachfront amusement park featuring 100+ rides & attractions including seasonal water parks. And Wildwood NJ has some great beachfront to explore and enjoy some sunshine at!!

Grounds For Sculpture. For my artistic side this place looks gorgeous to visit!! Grounds For Sculpture is a 42 acre sculpture park and art museum!

Cape May Lighthouse Full Moon Climb A great fitness challenge doing something you know you’d like to do anyway, that’s the way I see it anyway lol. Lighthouse Full Moon Climb

Off Roading The Pine Barrens, yikes! Rattlesnakes, frogs and a whole lotta swamp! But, we have a jeep so we can adventure!!

Rock Climbing. This is uncharted activity for hubs and me. I’ve talked about it and repelling often as something I want to try out. So time to strengthen up our arms and legs and dig in! These are the most popular places for rock climbing in N.J.

My not so little list keeps growing. I started this blog post before we moved, that was in November and when I opened the draft I had to edit in so much more we’ve found to see and do. So many parks and hikes we are super excited about! So many beaches to explore! Now we’re in search of the lesser known out of the way gems that only locals know about. So this list WILL be added to on the blog and as we do them, I want to cross them off the list to see how much we accomplish!!

<We’ve been honest that this wasn’t the easiest move. We called Virginia Beach VA home for 10 years of our 11 years together and all of our married life together. So Virginia Beach was home to us. But being in New Jersey has so many high points we can’t not be excited. Especially with family being here. I started this list to get myself ready for new adventures and discoveries and I know we’re gonna make a lot of memories and have a lot of fun!

Play

divider.png

I grew up in a very volatile angry household and from my earliest memories I don’t remember play, let alone deep play and the joy that I’ve seen in children’s faces playing. I grew up with a tv and stereo being my friends and magazines as my window to the world. I was a messed up kid from the war zone I called home and I didn’t make friends easily. I didn’t want them to know what went on at my house and I was never really allowed to go to anyone’s house often. So my bedroom was my sanctuary and when I did play, my play was imagining I had friends, or families like the few friends I had were blessed to have. So play was never joy for me, it always ended in having to come back to my all too real world. There was a huge disconnect. I grew up not even knowing how to play, really play where joy and laughter were the center of the world. But even the most well adjusted kids grow up and let day to day life, work, bills, etc… make them forget how to play.

Through a lot of healing and lately a lot of learning how to live my authentic self without fear and releasing that fear I realized that play was something I need to find. No matter how awkward that might feel (and it does), how scary it is is (it really is), I need to nurture that child within and allow her to have self expression. One of my biggest joys in life is just watching kids play. To hear their laughing and giggling. I’ve never laughed or giggled much (why so serious) but when I have it becomes so emotional I usually end up crying happy tears. And I instantly feel so good and so connected. So yeah, I need more of that and I need to give myself permission to feel it all. We all need more play, who couldn’t use a lil more.

Rev. Brien Egan CHt, CRM, CKRM is a certified hypnotherapist, a reiki master, karuna reiki master, pranic energy worker, EFT practitioner, life coach.  He manages and created: Just be: natural spiritual healing and wellness And is the director at Camp Now Brien is also a teacher and has had studies in Psychology/Special Education

I recently met someone who has become a mentor to me. His life in so many ways reflects what lies inside me. My soul recognizes his soul.  His name is Brien Egan. And besides all the rest of his credentials he and his beautiful kids and wife, love to play. In a few days I will actually begin Reiki Level 1 and  he will be my teacher and mentor. But just through knowing him he has reminded me that there is a part of me that still lies dormant or covered hiding secretly away. The child within me needs to thrive. It’s one of my biggest obstacles in life and on my path in life. 

Diane Ackerman wrote about the importance of “Deep Play” as an antidote to anxiety..

“Deep Play looks closely at the human saga, and consider how much of it revolves around play. Simple play, elaborate play, crude play, sophisticated play, violent play, casual play. Most animals play. Evolution itself plays with lifeforms. Whole cultures play with customs, ideas, belief systems, and fashions. But it’s a special caliber of play, deep play, that makes thrill-seeking understandable, creativity possible, and religion inevitable. Deep play awakens the most creative, sentient, and joyful aspects of our inner selves. More than anything else, our passion for deep play has made us the puzzling and resplendent beings we are.”

And Jason Silva spoke about her writing and his thoughts on Deep Play..

So my friends, let yourself play! It will reduce your stress and allow your creative self to thrive. Your tension will melt away and your inner child will  be nurtured and allowed to flourish!

Weight Loss Motivation Tips

giphy

◼️Create goals but make them manageable. Don’t set a goal that’s likely far in the future and don’t set one that’s to easy either. You’ll find that your goals may change over time, so make them small and short term.

◼️Imagine a fitter, healthier you. Imagine yourself fitting into those skinny jeans, or crossing that finish line. Focusing on actually accomplishing your goals will keep negativity at bay and allow you to push forward. Practice visualization for just 10 minutes a day simply by closing your eyes and picturing yourself getting healthier and slimmer, keying in on how you look and feel, and imagining a more confident, energized, and proud version of yourself.

◼️Always grocery shop with a list, and stick to the list!

◼️If you are going to indulge, remember the “rule of one”. One scoop, one piece, one bit, etc…

◼️Prep ahead. If you know you’re doing something that’s burning a lot of calories. Have a Shakeology available, or veggies & hummus. Healthy, low calorie, good nutrient snacks for when you feel like your energy’s been zapped and you get hangry!

◼️Create a vision board. It helps you to not lose sight of your goals during times you’re feeling low or struggling.

◼️Make a celebration as clothes get too big on you, donate them. This will make you feel good about your accomplishment and good about helping others from the sowing the seeds of your accomplishment!

◼️Do it for YOU. Don’t do it for your boyfriend, or your husband. Don’t do it to get that guy to notice you. You think that’s a real personal motivator, but it’s not. You have to do it for yourself. Because YOU want change, because YOU want better health.

◼️Don’t see rewards in the form of food or desert. Your rewards shouldn’t be food focused, ever. Let rewards be a new top, one size lower. Or go get your hair done, or a mani pedi. Massages are an awesome reward for working your body hard!

 

Ugly

Ted-Talk: Why thinking you’re ugly is bad for you

About 10,000 people a month Google the phrase, “Am I ugly?” Meaghan Ramsey of the Dove Self-Esteem Project has a feeling that many of them are young girls. In a deeply unsettling talk, she walks us through the surprising impacts of low body and image confidence—from lower grade point averages to greater risk-taking with drugs and alcohol. And then shares the key things all of us can do to disrupt this reality.

Love yourself first, as you are RIGHT NOW. That’s where you need to start.

A Worrier Or A Warrior?

25de3e25f66aeec714d347cc943f4662.jpg

Worrier or Warrior?

Do you stress over even the little things; things you may not even have control over?        
I was a major worrier, some time still am.
Maybe you aren’t but perhaps you are surrounded by them…
this is often not much better, maybe even worse.
Or it triggers your worry
Or you find yourself in an endless cycle of supporting each others negativity
Worriers spread doubt and oppress our own potential.
Worriers usually think they are helping you, some times even saving you.
When you are facing the big decisions in your life, there is no room for worry.
There is no room for fear. Logic yes, unrealistic or far reaching fears, NO.
Those people will say “well what if you fail?
What if it’s too hard?
What if you are never successful?
You know what you tell them…
What if I FLY!??
What if I am the catalyst that changes someones LIFE?
What if I CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
What if I CAN manifest my DREAMS and make them all TRUTHS?
WHAT IF I FEEL LIKE A WARRIOR, not a worrier?
Be the WARRIOR not a worrier!
And let them eat their words for breakfast!

💙 Susan

 

Re-Ignite Your Sense Of Wonder

You-see-things-and-you-say-why

 

I spent the last week with nieces and nephews at the beach, the aquarium, the carnival, eating caramel apples and playing in the sand. It give you perspective on joy, imagination, freedom of expression, imagination and creativity. And I began to think of ways to keep that momentum going seeing as we don’t have kids and our nieces and nephews are hours and hours away now. Hopefully this will help some of you to re-ignite your sense of wonder again 💙🐬🌊💙

“A sense of wonder is the key to agelessness”

Try everything, even things that may not sound fun or appealing to you. You never know, right? I’m sure you’ve tried things you thought you’d love and ended up wondering why you ever thought of doing it in the first place. So why not try the opposite? Never thought you’d want to play an instrument️🎻️🎷️🥁? maybe if you pick it up you’ll find it was one of the missing pieces of your life. The thing you never knew you wanted!

Let go of ego ☯️. Let go of your competitive side. Let go of the need to be the winner, the best at, and being number 1. Striving for perfection is tiring and can lead you down a path of defeat when you’re trying to experience new things. Worry about actually running 🏃🏽 before ever being concerned with beating your last PR.

Travel 🚙🚌✈🚆! Somehow when you set your feet in places you’ve never walked your mind is wide open for new experience. When your senses are awakened , your mind interactive and your eyes wide open 👀 you can sometimes learn new things about yourself and how you fit into the world. This can also open you up to new paths 🐾 to creativity and invention.

Volunteering. Putting yourself outside your own ego and self can be quite liberating. It can also allow you to experience life in new ways. This could be just the ticket to being inspired or motivated forward.

⭐Be an entrepreneur⭐. Having to rely on yourself and creating a business environment that puts you completely in charge of your own destiny is scary for sure. But it’s also mind expanding and creates an atmosphere of movement and change in your life. When you take on being your own boss you realize your own potential and can see it through your own eyes, not just through some boss in an office somewhere. You become more thoughtful, and more creative in your pursuit when you are doing something you wholeheartedly believe in. You can discover all of who you are and all that you can become!

 

Meditate ✌️🏽. Shut things down and out and just go within. To often the world tends to put constant chatter in our heads and we need to recharge and make it all stand still for a time so you can think fluidly again. Meditation will also bring you closer to your true self and callings because you are looking within as opposed to the world around you.

Let your inner weirdo out. Yes! Get down on the ground and do some sidewalk chalk. Go to a karaoke️🎤 place and belt out your favorite song. Do your hair 💇🏽that rainbow color you always wanted. Be a child again from time to time. If you let that inner wild one go, reclaim him or her and go and play, be weird!

 

i-would-rather-have-a-mind-opened-by-wonder-than-one-closed-by-belief

Visit your local craft store and browse everything!! As you walk the aisles something will call to you. It may be a color, or shiny baubles or maybe even that blank canvas will inspire you ✂🖌! You don’t have to know what you’re going there for, just browse.

👶🏽Hang out for a while with kids. Round up your nieces and nephews. Remember what it was like to imagine🦄. To use your imagination to ride the skies with 🐲 dragons and silly animals 🐤🐛 from play-doh. Again, we tend to lose that inner child as we grow up and are submerged into the adult world. We lose our sense of wonder, reclaim it!

Create a vision board. Vision boards are awesome because it can start with a couple things and then when you start envisioning things you want to do and see, more and more is revealed. I actually realized my dream of one day playing the violin ️🎼️🎻️🎶through doing a vision board. I finally found a great beginner violin and I’m now pricing out teachers!

Put yourself in positions to meet new interesting people. As we go through our day to day we tend to meet the same or similar kinds of people. Moms meet other Moms at PTA, office workers hang with fellow office workers after work, etc.. Sign up for a painting class or floral arranging. Maybe a cooking 😋🍪 class or learn to tango 💃🏽🕺🏽. Get out and meet people who are different from the norm that you meet. Not because the norm are bad. But cultivating friendships with different kinds of people from different walks of life and interests will be inspiring for you.

Release that which is no longer serving you. From clothing to jobs. Try reinventing yourself. Stop holding onto the past. My biggest hmmm 🤔 is wondering why people hold onto eras. Instead take some from an era and move on and become and eclectic soul.

Doodle, ✏draw those silly flowers 🌸and smiley faces 😛. Doodling can have a calming effect, similar to meditation. Mandalas are sometimes drawn in repetition within a meditation. It will help relax your brain and rejuvenate your though process. Coloring books are also super helpful and fun!

Eat brain healthy foods; Blueberries, nuts🥜, seeds, avocados🥑…. Keeping your mind fresh and alert helps keep the creativity flowing.

The Arts.  ️🎧Music is a release and also can be inspiring. As well as art for some people. Some can find walking through a gallery very inspiring and thought provoking. So go see the ballet, your favorite band, or catch a play️ ️🎭!

Play video games, read comics, letting that inner child have some fun again 🤣

💤Sleeeeep💤. Catching enough zzzzz’s will help your mind to function better, as well as your whole body. This will help you be more creative, inspired and ready to expand your horizons.

Rise

“Rise”

I won’t just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can’t write my story
I’m beyond the archetypeI won’t just conform
No matter how you shake my core
‘Cause my roots—they run deep, ohOh, ye of so little faith
Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I’ll fight it, I’ll fight it
I will transform

When, when the fire’s at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They’re whispering, “You’re out of time,”
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don’t be surprised
I will still rise

I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed

‘Cause when, when the fire’s at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They’re whispering, “You’re out of time,”
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don’t be surprised
I will still rise

Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You know it, you know it
Still rise
Just fight it, just fight it
Don’t be surprised
I will still rise
