Days 1-6 : A Rough Start #DoMagick

I have been focusing on trying to keep my stress levels down this month just because I know how bad January was. This month could be worse since by the end of it, we should be moving all the other departments into the new office.  Admittedly I have not been doing so well stress-wise. I have knots in the muscles along my spine, a permanent eye-twitch, anxiety, and irritability. I’m tired. Really fucking tired. The beginning of the month at the day job started with billing, and it doesn’t help that we’re short handed in my department and can’t hire anyone until we get some computer stations set up in the accounting office, which can’t happen until we get the other departments moved in. On top of that, I’ve been trying to keep up with my own work. Last week was billing and this week is payroll. Plus there have been family to-do’s and obligations. Add to that a strict publishing schedule and editing and you have a full plate.  Now you know why I chose balancing chakra meditations. I certainly need them right now.

So I have managed to perform the meditations daily, and the past two nights I’ve used this video.  I fell asleep halfway through both times but it was a nice way to fall asleep.  All the same, I’ve decided I need the waking meditations because I’m not sure I’m getting as much benefit from the ones right before bed. That is to say, I haven’t felt as balanced. Today I did my chakra balancing during a break at the office hoping it would help. I felt a bit better afterward. More centered and present. More focused.

My tarot for the day is the Five of Swords. Feeling defeated and irritable.  Ha! That about sums things up.

My Lenormand for the day: Mountain — Obstacles, blocks, frustrations, an uphill battle.  That sums up my 2018 so far. LOL  That’s okay – I’ve overcome worse than an office move in an understaffed office. It’s a good thing I’m an optimist or I’d likely be holed up in a padded room somewhere. Haha.

That said, so goes my first  6 days of the #DoMagick challenge.
