Today was a day off. The proximity of the university to the Capitol makes for hectic commuting when we’re not in a pandemic so our semester schedule always gets pushed back every four years. I usually prep for my courses or work on research. Today, I could do neither.
What an exhausting few weeks. I hardly slept last night and this evening, I’m feeling emotionally drained. For someone who hasn’t actually interacted with people face-to-face much for 313 days, I could use some alone time. I pocked around at my houseplants. The prayer plant has a little green bloom. I didn’t even know they had blooms until it popped up last week. I have an amaryllis that is growing quite tall. The hyacinth continues to bloom. They smell quick lovely.
I headed out into the garden. The green ice roses are
not looking very green at all. They’re a lovely spotted pink. The black
hellebores have buds. My green/purple hellebores have buds as well but the
black hellebores have never bloomed since I purchased them as little sprouts.
Gardening sometimes means waiting years just to see what will happen.
I came inside and realized that I needed a good cleanse so I lit a black obsidian healing candle, which has the lovely fragrance of white sage and lavender, and I took a hot shower. I held my rose crystal tight. And then I put on lavender oil. Now I’m wrapped up with classical music playing in my fella’s office (he did have to work today) and the crackling of the candle beside me.
Black obsidian helps cleanse the psychic muck and it
also helps break negative attachments. The rose quartz inspires compassion and
boosts a feeling of peace and calm. The
lavender is for the anxiety.
