"1. Contrary to popular belief, waking up early isn’t going to drastically alter your life or effect how you’re feeling. So sleep till noon and relish in the way laying in bed all day makes you feel a little more human.
2. Drinking your coffee ‘black’ doesn’t make you cooler or more sophisticated than the rest of us who load in milk and sugar.
3. Being unimpressed by everything makes you look like a twat. Get excited, be overly passionate about something. Enthusiasm is fun.
4. Hating yourself isn’t romantic.
5. Eat whatever you want. your friend’s a vegan? Awesome. Listen to her talk about how great she feels because of it while you tuck in to some chocolate cake. Tell her you feel just as great.
If you are interested in exploring your intuition, the power of personal vibration and energy, then I recommend reading Frequency, by Penney Peirce.
This read covers topics like embracing your ultra sensitivity and channeling your energy frequencies to achieve a peaceful and liberating life. Unlike others that try and give you a formula for a better life, Pierce provides helpful insight on altering the way we see life. One thing that I especially like, is that the author doesn't force facts into your brain, it allows you to draw conclusions and ideas on your own.
"Many people I talk to are trying to find a permanent way to remain in the 'good stuff,' be happy all the time, and never drift off purpose. But we are vibrating beings and we move through our experiences by virtue of life's wavelike nature. You, as well as other people, have your own personal vibration - and it changes depending on what you're thinking, feeling, and doing. The most important thing to know is that you can influence it. You can let your personal vibration match the world's chaotic soup of frequencies and feel buffeted about helplessly, or you can determine how you want to feel."

Back in January I wrote a post about dream interpretation that talked about how to decode these sleeping mysteries. As I mentioned, I am a great believer in dream journaling and interpretation; they give me insight on my life and spirituality.
Lately I've been doing some reflecting and realized my need for a great confidence and creativity booster. Life is hectic - with all sorts of unfinished projects and ideas floating around in the air - and without something to ground yourself, you can get lost in the mess.
This week I was reminded of the importance of listening to one's dreams. I have had strange and bizarre dreams in the past, but what spoke to me about this recent dream was a particular symbol. A flamingo. As ridiculous as it sounds, this pink, exotic bird, became my muse. It is recognized as an omen for freedom and new experiences, and the dream had symbols that answered many questions I had. Although I won't get into detail about my dream, I want to emphasize my point:
Your dreams are always saying something.
No matter how small or ridiculous the dream, your brain is always trying to answer, understand or even foresee things in your sleep. Take a moment in your busy life to relax, sleep well and recall your dreams from the night before. They can offer peace, insight, inspiration, understanding, comfort...or just some plain entertainment! ☺
The answers you look for may be hidden in your dreams.
To me summer is all about doing the things you love that you don't necessarily get to do a whole lot during the school year. One of those things, just simply taking time to listen to some music while doing other leisurely activities, whether it be reading, crafting and of course just taking in the music on its own. It seems with the right set of tunes anything can be done with ease! Here are some laid back tracks perfect for any summer day. Some recent, some oldies but nonetheless goodies. Enjoy!!! ❀
