New Beginnings | Law Of Attraction

lifestyle

A few months ago I was interested in tarot cards and readings. I found this woman who makes video on youtube, that are generalized card readings and I fell in love. Majority of what she says ends up being true.. now before you sit here and say “oh but she could just say something that relates to anyone”  … yes you’re right that could be possible but see… this is how she does it: 

She lays out her cards in piles of 5… she tells us viewers to choose OUR pile or sometimes multiple piles. She also puts gem stones on top of the piles for those that need a little assistance in being drawn to a pile. 

After I choose my pile through out every video I watch of hers ( I take notes by the way because I want to journal it and see what ends up happening to me in the end ) and I’ll watch my pile and what she has to say but after that I go ahead and look at the other piles and how it is very rare for the other piles to have even one remote thing about my life and how I perceive it to be. I connect the other piles with past experiences and or with my loved ones around me but within my personal lifestyle or choices, it is super rare that the piles ever even happen to me besides the one I’ve personally chosen in every video 

So, do I believe in her? Yes.. they are generalized readings so of course she’s going to try and connect her card readings to what could relate to multiple people since her targeted readers are multiple ages, genders and more. 

I’m sharing this with you BECAUSE today I decided to watch a video of hers. It was based on what is to come for me in the month of May. Now the reason I watched it is because I do have a lot of plans for May and I’m just curious as to what will happen. When I watched it… she spoke a lot about law of attraction, spirituality and manifestation. Which lead me to do a lot of research (this was also brought up). 

Its pretty insane how she said all of this only because about a month ago one of my best friends, Karina, had told me to look into it and possibly practice it because it’s been helping her and she’s been looking into it more and more. She felt as though law of attraction would be something that could work out for me, but I didn’t think anything of it until now. Not because of the youtuber but because I do have a lot going on in my life and I need some kind of plan, some kind of structure on how to balance it all out and get what I want. 

Law of attraction, briefly, is getting what you want by changing your mindset and creating the life that you want for yourself.. thats at least what my interpretation is.

I’ve been watching these challenges on youtube, 21 days law of attraction challenge, and I can see the difference and spark of light within people. I want that. 

So here goes my journey, I hope you’ll join me.

National Clean Your Cabinets Day

lifestyle

One thing I find interesting is that every day is a national holiday according to society and Google.

So today I randomly was interested in googling what national day it is today and although there are so many I wanted to specifically talk about national clean out your cabinet day.

National clean out medicine cabinet day is annually on the third Friday of April. The goal is to raise awareness and effectively get rid of unused and or expired prescription and over the counter medications in your cabinet.

As a loved one who supports recovering addicts and addicts around the world, this day actually means a lot to me. It is not the easiest thing to handle when your body is so used to something.

We are all addicts of some kind, coffee, soda, chocolate, sex, alcohol, adrenaline rush addiction and even social media can get addicting for some. You can pretty much be addicted to anything but of course the ones with the hard side affects to our bodies are the ones we all care about most, at least I do.

Today, I honor those that survive addiction.

Today, I honor those that fight the battles in recovering in any kind of addiction.

In society eyes, addiction isn’t really spoken about. When we see the homeless out on the streets many refrain from even looking at them, when really they are just humans. Most of them are put into situations that they have tried to get out of but instead, their luck in life is nonexistent. I personally know someone who has had the troubles of no luck in life and has turned to the “easy” way out of temporary pain relief. The way this person knows how to cope and handle their situations is to run to what they are most comfortable with and grew up around.

Just to bring up some numbers here…

• according to the national survey on drugs use and health, in 2017 there were 19.7 million American adults (aged 12 and older) that battled a substance use disorder.

Although I do not believe in 12-17 year olds to be categorized as “adults” , knowing that substance use as this, starts at the age of 12 in 2017 is just appalling to me.

• 1 out of every 8 adults struggled with BOTH alcohol and drug use disorders simultaneously… as well in 2017.

So now, what really causes addiction? Of course genetics is definitely one cause as well as ones environment. Ones environment, who they surround themselves with could cause 40% to 60% of a risk in addiction. This is where we can categorize pre-teens and young adults.

Environmental factors that may increase risk of addiction include;

⁃ abuse / chaotic home

⁃ Parents reaction / attitude towards drugs (even their own use)

⁃ Poor academic achievement

Another cause of addiction can of course be caused by mental health / mental disorders. People with mental disorders are actually at the highest risk than other populations for drug use and addiction.

Let’s get into some more numbers here based on the age groups within the year 2017 alone.

Approximately 4% of 12 to 17 year olds in America suffered from a substance use disorder.. that is about 992,000 teens. Also equivalent to 1 in 25 teens. About 443,000 teens in this age group have had an alcohol use disorder and lastly an estimate of 741,000 in this age group suffered from an illicit drug use disorder.

All in all, in honor of today’s national day, please do go through your medicine cabinets. You all have guests coming in and do not know where they are mentally. Of course it is illegal for the use of prescription drugs that are not under your name, but let’s be honest with an addiction or mental disorder… you may never know what will or could happen.

It is always a great thing to keep in the loop of such things like this. Although I am upset of topics like these and seeing the numbers, this is real life shit. If nobody talks about it, what change could possibly happen?

Thanks for reading. Happy Friday!
