Happy labor and love day, firefly!

Remember the COLOR-ME-THON? I hope so it ended only yesterday! Well, I had the final tally and submitted the donation just a minute ago with the final dollar amount being $200!

Donation Confirmation ADAA

I did make it so that you all that contributed would be recognized as such by honoring this contribution to the spirit of firefly.

Seriously two Ben Franklins aiding research and efforts for anxiety and depression prevention! This moment could not feel any better and I am excited to embark on another donation effort if the time and cause feels right.

Just wanted to publicly announce this contribution so you know just how amazing you are.

Color altar challenge

rainbowaltar

Build + transform your sacred space into a colorful spiritual vehicle by mastering the legendary energies of the rainbow for the next 7 weeks.

Rainbow color energy is a powerful and cohesive spectrum of balance, joy and prosperity.

During this challenge, you will focus on a specific color of the rainbow each week to strengthen your senses and improve your relationship with color. I encourage you to share photos of your unique and beautiful altar space and feel free to use hashtags #rainbowaltar and #myaltar when posting on Instagram and Facebook.

Manifest your perfect altar

An altar has three easy elements you want to keep in mind: theme, location and decoration. Each element will be personal and unique to you so keep this in mind while you build, appreciate and share your altars with others.

Theme

An altar theme is super fun especially when you  feel like you have the purpose to beautify your sacred space. Many sample themes for altars go beyond beauty and capture essences of meditation, monthly goals, prayer/rituals, remembrance and seasonal tidings. The latter being most commonly accepted as we all pretty much decorate our homes as the seasons pass. For this challenge our theme is color and we will build our own altars based a primary color of the rainbow. Giving us seven hues to work with for seven days. If you feel compelled to move forward in the challenge or do not have a specific color then feel free to message me on ways we can balance your body and space with the colors you do have.

Location

I don’t expect you to keep your altars in one or multiple places. The best part of what I do as a color reader is use my intuition and empathic abilities to feel out energy. This challenge shall give you practice in feeling out the perfect room for your colorful altars. Go ahead and use your imagination. You may wish to close your eyes, turn around three times in a room, and open rapidly to see where your fingers and eyeballs feel heavily drawn toward. Go there and set up home for a week. If you do have pets and small children be mindful that focused attention may call in unwanted forces. It’s always good to keep the area healthy and safe especially if you plan on using candles!

Decoration

Speaking of candles…there are plenty of items to use to create a beautiful, eye popping and engaging altar. Let the items you choose speak to you. You have a whole week to meditate on why you chose them in the first place and how color speaks to you. Buying expensive figurines and crystals are not the main focus of having the perfect altar. An altar is always best adorned by intention, love and resourcefulness. However if you have a luxurious sweet tooth than work it like there’s no tomorrow! I often find rocks and pinecones (love love love pinecones by the way) outside that I bring inside to enhance my altar. Here is a quickie list of altar decor: fresh flowers or plants, candles, incense, silk or cotton scarves, rose petals, decorative stands, gemstone bowls, photos, written notes or affirmations, soft lighting, trinket boxes, totem animals.

Maintain your perfect altar

Upkeep is always important. If you let items sit for too long than the energy in the space becomes monotonous and obvious. Boring, I say! So if you keep your space tidy, dust free and energetically sound than the natural chi of your sacred space will be happy indeed. Some easy ways to keep your altar sparkly clean energetically is to incorporate crystals for cleansing like quartz and black tourmaline. I love to have himalayan sea salt around to keep positivity in the air. If you feel like your space is too cluttered than try the minimalist approach: negative space is free space. White sage is a great auric cleanser as well to maintain your perfect altar.

Now that we covered some fundamentals of altar building and cleaning.

Lets get down to playtime.

How to join the challenge

I can’t make you do anything you don’t want to do, but I do intend for you to find balance and some ability to master color energy by doing this challenge. As such I ask that you participate socially to some degree even if  it’s emailing me your altar photos every week and us having a quick chat. Whatever I can do to help you better understand color and improve your relationship with it would topple me with supreme joy!

Yes I love color this much so here’s what you can do…

My dragon wing is broken but what does it mean

dragon statue broken wing photo

A few nights ago I was reaching for my charger near my bed and noticed a yellow shard on the ground.

Desolate and forgotten energies consumed my eyes as the space between my night table and bed only consist of parcels of crumbs and spider mischiefs. I picked up the piece apprehensively and instantly registered that the remnants I held belonged to my faithful companion.

Dragon.

My eyes began to swell and my heart chakra tried to erase the memory.

However, I knew that this small fracture of a wing must have broken while I was tossing and turning in my sleep.

I cried.

Upset at how something so strong in times of traveling and moving can be so fragile to the touch when it settles.

My dragon spirit has calmed and cooled in recent months and I realize that my energy has changed since gaining full time employment.

The art and craft of my spiritual self is more sacred.

I am more reserved.

Since I am not soaring with you all 24/7 on Facebook like I used to, I feel better.

I was giving away myself too much and not focusing on clarity and details that often fall to the wayside when you are way up in that skyblue space full of clouds from all around. I pushed myself to the point of breaking and it physically manifested by taking over my dragon figurine.

I am young still.

Exuberant with endless energy to live.

Why should I settle when I can soar to great heights and achieve victories unbeknownst to me at this time.

My independence is key as an Aries through and through and being able to move to my own beat is how I survive. I embrace change as if it’s a new adventure.

As this season begins to end, my energy changes with and it appears that my connections with elephant are growing stronger. While my tenacity drawn by dragon erodes a bit in order to bring harmony to my present existence, I am grateful that this wing can be fixed.

I will be soaring soon on my own but until then I will mend what’s been broken in my spirit.

Comebacks are sweet firefly and even if there is something chipped, broken or missing in your life know that you may have to go inside to recover what you need.
