How to Use the Self Healing Database

I would like to present a few ways to use the Self Healing Database. These tips are applicable to you if you already know some of the associations already, or have the books and aources for yourself.

Check out the Recommended Reading here.

Toc

Why I Made the Database

I needed a place to list all of the known associations for the links between chakras, energy systems, emotions, acupressure points, and mystic science such as alchemy and the angels.

I am so very interested to better link together these topics to Astrology in a Universal way for healing and understanding.

With a little encouragement from my own mom, who looked over in admiration on a late night. She exclaimed, “Caylene, I want that! Ill pay for it!”

I hadn’t thought to share it until then. Soon I was building this and other databases that were too large, I had to upgrade my account! So I decided there was now more than enough of a reason to share it with others.

Dear Blog Buddy, Mindful Update from the Woods

Vicky! 

I can’t even begin to thank you for how much you have inspired me as a human, blogger, and friend. I have been going through so much emotionally, and it really started with this mindfulness talk on your blog: CrunchyLeavesandSunsets.co.uk

See, I do this thing with topics that I find interesting.

I will read a history book and a book of lore and read them as equals. I will read science journals and spiritual texts as equals. Not deciding what I believe or is true to me, if I do not experience something myself that proves itself in life. And thus, I really take in a lot of information, much of which is inconsistent and are simply theories, thoughts, ideas. it’s so rare that I come across enough compounding evidence and facts that align just so that I can believe it! When this happens, it’s magic.

When I stumbled upon you so many things happened in the Blog Buddy Program. But behind all this, your blog niche in itself has changed my life.

Reading your posts and learning about mindfulness, practicing this and meditation regularly has… Wow. I expect my own blog can speak for itself right now on how deep I’ve been getting.

That said, I’ve dug hard into mindfulness and I think one of the best books so far has been Living In Balance. Which the title in itself, pretty much explains my current life goal in its entirety. Sums it all up in 3 words.

Anyways, definitely a worthwhile book read.

I am sitting here in Beverly Beach, Oregon on a camping trip with my family. A bit of a “family reunion” actually. What’s really kind of funny is that in one of my previous letters, the Fabulous App told me to take a day or a week off of data and mobile and was like NOPE. But this week, I’ve barely had to use a phone (music for the kid) and I loaded up the laptop with only the Buddy Program Email Course to finish and nothing else (it’s new to me). At camp, we’ve had no service or wifi so it’s been extremely peaceful. Super thankful for this week without all the jazz of the internet and the overwhelm that blogging can be. A near total unplugs, but wait. I’m writing a Dear Blog Buddy Post and finishing the Buddy Program, but hey. It’s only keys and a screen, no more no less. And it feels good, to be able to have someone like you to write to at this moment and be able to share with you my work. And that my work will be seen by the same people that might take an interest in the Blogging Buddies or the Program. How cool is that?

In short, I know I’ve been kind of off in the distance, or the stars more like. But, it’s all for mindful progress in self-healing, and it’s been successful. My mind and heart and soul is making a turning point for the better.

My intuition for this blog and BBP is on track for success and I’m SO stoked for what comes next with this launch!

And within my own life and relationships, taking the most mindful and heartfelt approach. It blows my mind how much unconditional love I have for blogging, you, bloggers, and me, and everything and everyone that has something to say. Anything at all to say that is positive, uplifting, inspiring, thoughtful, insightful, intelligent, intuitive, etc.

3 Steps to More Productive Screen Time In Your Life

Recently I have realized my lack of self care and am trying to change my habits. I spent the last few weeks reflecting on my life (in this recent Jupiter Retrograde the last few days especially), I feel I made huge progress within my self already!

Dear Blog Buddy, I Cracked Open & Poured It Out

Dear Blog Buddy, I Cracked Open & Poured It Out

I’m so happy to have you to write to right now because it’s been a wild week and I really do need to get it out here on the blog too. I had a really emotional end of my week last week. I’ll be honest, as usual because in my last letter, I admitted my struggle to find balance. And as the week progressed, all the worry and fear came to life. As I wrote on my blog about thinking positively my body came barreling through my conscious mind and things crumbled beneath me as I barely stood. Weak from all that I was attempting to carry with me.

 

I think back to days of travel and look around, overwhelmed by all my things. To think I used to live out of a backpack, and now we have so much stuff! So much has been lost because of it too…

 

All my lost time with my husband, due to our new amazing child. Lost in the blogging community and all the many hours I have put into it so far. It’s all just been too much, and my body was weak. As I dove back into my spiritual side, I quickly began to break my emotional barriers. On thursday I had gone to the Chiropractor, and it felt great! But it must have shook me up because I was extremely emotional on Friday and by Saturday (Bowden worked all day and I didn’t hear from him until 6pm!) I was a mess. Sunday, we spent all day trying to put me back together again, emotionally drained and broken to the core.

 

I know that all this has happened for a really strong reason. As my week began I knew I had to take better care of myself and truly, find the balance in my life. It starts with my happiness, and Bowden is right. I need to find the roots to my happiness, my home is with him. And our daughter, my beautiful, brilliant girl needs him just as much as she needs me. And I am not whole without him, and him without me. We must come together again and thank god he is who he is and wants all this to change as well!

 

So I’ve begun to structure my daily routine, not around chores and tasks. But around what will make me happy and feel accomplished. Things that will give me energy, so that I can accomplish a few things that will progress me through my true journey of life. I have embarked on a quest to make goals, set priorities, and get to action!

And this time Vicky, I don’t just mean Blogging. I mean life! I mean being mindful about myself, my relationships, my work, and my roles to other people.

 

Okay, so you’re all caught up.

 

Here are some of the new things that have made a big difference to my life recently:

 

  • Folding Mindfully (oh, yea, still going strong on this!)
  • I don’t set times/days to “clean the house”, I just consistently tidy as I go now, never having to do any large chore at any specific time or day. Things are just always kept up now 🙂
  • Drinking water & in the morning with a quick stretch before anything else. (Before butt changes, coffee or smokes even, and that for me is a big deal!)

 

The app Fabulous has made these new changes in my life fun and enjoyable!

Which I will talk about next week:

3 Steps to More Productive Screen Time In Your Life

And the last thing that really was a huge turn around for me is clearing out my phone! I’ll do a whole post on it soon but basically, I narrowed down my app list, put everything in folders and rearranged my screens to make me feel better, more tidy and helpful and motivated. Now I feel like I can tackle tidying my online/computer/storage mess of an alternative life.

 

I’m excited for the shift in the stars in about two weeks though. I’m about over this overwhelming feeling of doom that has swept us over the last few months. (I’ve been getting back into Astrology and woohoo is it a crazy ride of realization that we’re all so connected!)

 

Sorry I missed last week. I know you understand, thanks for your encouraging words my bloggy friend!

Finding Joy In Folding Clothes This Weekend As I Learn to Tidy Up!

Finding Joy In Folding Clothes This Weekend As I Learn to Tidy Up!

 

My motto is a, “A little bit every day is more in every way.” Or, at least, it was last year. As I progress through this white winter. After a major move late summer into early fall.

I’ve been struggling for years to find it within myself to be clean and organized. As I began my pregnancy a messy person, I had a new determination for change and to downsize what we had.

I did okay getting through all the stuff for the move, as we left a lot and threw out a ton. We still have loads left.

The difference now is, with the big house we rented with all the roommates… A lot of the stuff there wasn’t ours and so, it was easy to decide what was not important. But we were eventually in a rush… If we were unsure we kept it.

Move day (both times) we had to move every box at least twice if not a few more times. Gosh all this stuff!

For a kid who had nothing but a backpack when we met (Bowden), we sure have accumulated a lot of stuff in the last decade together! Like, wow!

Now it’s time to apply what I was missing then. A method to the maddness!

And… This is about to turn into a “Thank God for Netflix” moment.

In this vlog episode, I give a short explanation about what’s going on and our struggles with “stuff”… I do show some pictures and background of where and what we’ve been dealing with. As well as talk about briefly what goals I’m working towards and why. Don’t forget to subscribe to the channel!
 

Viewers: How do you like my first attempt at video editing? Leave me some encouraging words or critique in the comments?

 


Thank Netflix, for the show “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo”

Tidying Up is a show that had caught my eye a few weeks ago, but one I’ve been avoiding because I was too busy to stop and sit down, let alone to watch a show.

This weekend while Bowden was a way he had left me with some cash. So I picked up a “Breath” magazine about Mindfulness and planned to do some “me time”, self love style and just relax.

I worked through the first evening until I got dizzy and sat down. I read some of the mag though, (before I started getting dizzy by more words.) And it talked about choosing one area of your life to focus all your attention on. Something your not good at, or normally try to rush through.

I immediately thought about my clothes because, Bowden has brought to my attention how careless I dress and have no attachment to my clothes. I never have had a style. I’ve gone through some changes but most of the time through my life you’ll find me in a t-shirt and jeans.

I’m not an accessories kind of gal. My version of dressing up is choosing a skirt (I have a few I like now) and struggling to find a shirt that’s not a t-shirt to go along with it. And I never know where my shoes are so I borrow some from a girlfriend.

I realize that it’s a problem and have working on getting rid of clothes I have accumulated and left behind in our old house. Finally I’m down to a select bunch.

This is where I got dizzy and turned on Netflix…

 

This relentless, (beautiful), stubborn, controlling but lazy mom was swamped and gosh… Minus the two kids, that was me, like, two years ago. And I’ve still kept to, “I hate to cook”. I’ve been working on everything else. But that whole “can’t sit down” bit was actually “don’t want to get up” only a short time ago…

Life Changing Videos | Here’s my playlist where you can find the videos or trailers mentioned in this post! 

 

There was this ah-ha moment for me, when the host of the show Marie Kondo started revealing the “magic” of tidying. Basically, it is holding and thanking items, and choosing to keep only items that “spark joy” in you.

(And let me just say I LOVE the work JOY almost as much as LOVE. And that I LIKE the word “tidying” much more than… “cleaning” which makes me feel overwhelmed. I think I know why, but I’ll write another post on this some other time…)

As I watched the first episode of this show progress, they tackle their whole house and totally tidy up every little bit of it. And you can see their marriage start to matter again, the freedom of the kids start to refocus them. And their whole living environment changed!

 

The mother, totally did fess up and get to work when she started to see the difference it made in her life and her family, in just doing the clothes and kitchen. And I know that I can do that, this is the next step and now I have a system! A process to follow!

I’ll talk about each step as I go through it here on my blog, in the “Tidying Up Series”. I’ll probably be posting on social media and the vlog about it too, obviously @luvlifewlee / #luvlifewlee.

 

So I watched another episode or so and got some sleep… and then I got to work on my house!

The next morning, I decided to take the day off and get something done, or not. But I worked through Wednesday which I decided last weekend saw supposed to be a self care day… But skipped and worked through! Agh…

Bowden is gone until Sunday so I decided to take action from what I learned in that show and apply it to my life right away. Well, the first episode got me real bad. And I am one motivated mama!

 


I Found Joy In Folding My Clothes!

Who knew there would be a day that I, enjoyed folding clothes… Wow.

So, to use the method from Tidying Up with Marie Kondo (YouTube Video, found in my ‘Life Changing Videos You’ll Love’ playlist). I started with the clothes of ours: CJ’s, Bowden’s, and then Mine.

I dumped them all out and began to hold and thank each item, keeping the ones that brought me joy or “could” bring me joy, such as clothes that will fit CJ soon and be super cute!

And this helped me to know what it felt like to feel joy from holding Items. I knew that I would find more joy in CJ’s clothes than my own. Isn’t that funny?

I have meticulously folded all of our daily clothing items such as shirts, pants, skirts, and underwear for each of us.

I literally worked on this the rest of the day and into the late hours of the night, getting through all of my own clothes. But oh, my gosh does it feel so good!

Like I said, I’ll keep you updated here and there on the progress of me tidying up and living a more purposeful and mindful life. 

Why to Blog Like It’s A Business

We need to talk about blogging as a business because that is truly not the mindset that many new bloggers have. And this, my new friends, is what is going to bring you out on top. Plan your blog like you’d plan a business and you will go somewhere on the internet, and you will achieve an income doing so. A profit, steady growth, and hard earned cash can be accomplished in your blogging efforts. If you are going to create the content anyways, why not branch out and grow? Into a business.

5 Apps That Run My Life As A Blog Mom

Today I want to highlight some technology since it’s Tuesday (inspired by #techtuesday). As a busy blog mom, I have a lot going on to say the very least. I’m going to review my top five favorite apps that help me to run my entire life. From house chores to organizing blog posts to getting ALL of my daily tasks DONE on time.

 

blogtober series episode 2 - 5 apps that help run my life


GETTING TO KNOW ME || I struggle to keep organized and clean. By nature, I not a very detail oriented person. I think big picture. I have found that starting big and working my way in works well for me. Keeping this in mind then, if makes sense that I like to make lists. It forces me to break life into pieces and then put them back to fit into an ultimately larger goal. I regularly make to-do lists and project plans of action to help me navigate through my life. These five apps help me live a better, more productive life every day, every week, every year.

 

 


Habitica's Introduction image

Habitica

Habitica Website || Download from Google Play or iOS Stores for Free || Wiki

App Description ||

This is a role-playing task to do list, habit tracker and reward system. You can connect with friends and make a team, or go solo. Honestly this app is so huge and it’s wiki is intense. I just enjoy the basics.

 

Function & Features ||

Use “Habits”, “Dailies” and “Tasks” to earn coins, health and ultimately rewards for your cute avatar. Find eggs for animals, mounts, equipment and more along the way. Eventually, you get to choose a class and use some powers to boost your character (so if you miss a day, you don’t lose all your health or eventually all your coins)!

 

App Uses ||

When I got pregnant I started to go through some major changes in my life. I knew I needed to be a more organized person. There were days when I did the laundry, just to earn some coins for a new sword or shield. No joke. But it kept me motivated! Soon enough I was opening and clicking off everything I got done that day with a smile on.

Now, I have removed much of my chore list and have used it to focus more on good blogging habits! And it’s working! It’s keeping this blog on track every day now that I have a schedule. Not that I don’t do the house chores anymore, they have just moved to “habits” now and I’m not rewarded as good as the “daily” or “task” sections that I have reserved for new blogging habits.

 

Application to my life ||

It helps motivate me to get things done on an everyday basis. One day at a time right?

 

Extra Credit || 

You can add friends and build a team. I’d be interested to team up on Habitica to support each other and building good habits. Contact me personally on FB, OK?

 


Evernotes Introduction Image

Evernote

Evernote Website || Sign Up

Description ||

This is an open notebook program that allows you to take notes and add categories via “notebooks” in which your notes are kept. It’s basically an online spiral notebook, available on every device. Scratch that EVERY SINGLE spiral notebook and all of your notes EVER.

 

Function & Features ||

Notebooks

I use many notebooks for every aspect of my life. My blog, finances, receipts, coupons/deals, meal planning, diary entries, inspiration, quotes and more. It’s all in one place and I can access it anywhere.

 

Uses ||

Some of the most important notebooks that help me as a blogger are:

Draft 1, 2, and 3 Notebooks || I draw up post outlines and my original thoughts for posts into the Draft 1 notebook. Once I have completely finished the idea and have a real post going on, it moves to Draft 2 notebook. This is where I really get into editing my grammar and finish writing the post. When I’m ready I copy & paste it to my WordPress Posts and when I’m totally done with the post and ready to publish, the originally drafted note now moves to Draft 3 which is reserved for finished posts. So I have an ongoing list of posts I’ve done recently.

Current Blog Series Notebook || The exception to the above way of drafting posts is when I’m running some kind of post series in which I have very related content to write in a short amount of time. Like, Blogtober for example. This allows me to go to the series and work on those posts easily and when they are done, they will also join the Draft 3 notebook (only after I’ve published the series). Freeing up this empty notebook for the next series I may write later on.

Clipboard Notebook || I don’t know about you but I hate typing the same phrase over and over and in blogging, that happens a lot. So I have a selection of notes in this notebook that I use a lot. This includes all of my post’s links, original and shortened so that I don’t have to return to my own blog to search for a specific post. I just go to the list and copy and paste the short description if needed, the link, I’m done. Another example is the longtail Youtube Channel description I use for every video to include links to my other social networks. A final example is

 

Application to my life ||

It’s where I keep every thought, every idea, every rant, and every detail of my many, many plans and projects throughout the course of my entire life. I’d say it’s everything but…

 

Extra Credit || 

To use Evernote for free click here. There are upgrades available as a Premium service for business services and larger storage (although I have never seen a need to upgrade myself). It’s my favorite, more details about why at the bottom of this post

 

 


My life is to Google everything.

I even have a board on Pinterest called Google Everything, just for this very reason. Why do I love Google? Because it’s everything I need and I can have multiple accounts. I have an email address for everything. Each business (photos & blog), super personal, for my devices (hard drives, media, apps). Which means that sometimes, I have multiple choices when it comes to where something gets put (and occasionally I lose it in the mass of Google somewhere, but not too often). Because it allows me to actually be extremely organized with my time management, event planning, and managing apps, interests, and media. By exclusively using Google for all of my personal and business needs, it’s all in one place on any device in the world. I constantly use my PC, tablet, and mobile android phone equally throughout my day. I can work anywhere at any time, with the internet and Google alone.

Google Calander

 

Description ||

The beauty of current “smart” technology is with multiple mobile devices and multiple accounts to sign into and use… All you have to do is pick your account and all your work and progress and plans are there. I have recently started a routine lifestyle with my daughter and schedule my days and weeks in advance. I’m now learning how to plan months in advance with the help of Google Calendar. It’s really easy to add, edit, and repeat events. Ultimately, to make a schedule

 

App Uses ||

Let me start by saying I have like 10 different Gmail accounts. Why? Because I am my own boss so I have a lot going on here. I am a person so I have my personal email (that I use very little and is very old, so it has much important information linked to the world honestly). I also have an account for my devices that hold and sync all my contacts and media from them. I tend to upload the content appropriately, but it’s my default to log into on mobile devices only and has many games and apps signed up under it.

I run two businesses, the first is my photography business, Love You Photos with my best friends. This blog is also a job for me, I work really hard and spend as many hours working online as my husband does as an electrician. Would you expect me to run an entire online work project on my personal email account? Why would I do that? Of COURSE, I have a separate email account for the blog. (Go ahead, send me an email to lovinglifewithlee at Gmail, I’d love to hear from you!)

This also allows me to have many separate drives for storing bits of information under each, and to make separate calendars. Mobile devices allow you to have many accounts and information saved so that it makes logging into any account very easily. I can even see all my calendars at once. Or select just a few. Syncing my life together into its many pieces and parts.

 

Application to my life ||

I schedule chores with my personal account, photo shoots with its account, and my blog schedule and editorial calendar all separately. With Google Calendars thought, I can see them all together and have a nice arrangement via current technology.

 

This is why I can honestly say, “Google runs my life.”

 

 


Google Keep Introduction Image

 

Google Keep

 

Description ||

It’s just a simple note-taking app by Google that of course syncs like the calendar. They appear like colored sticky notes altogether within the app.

 

Function & Features ||

The beauty of this over Evernote is so simply the minimalist behavior of using this. You can color code the notes and pin certain notes to the top.

 

Uses ||

For quick ideas and copy and pasting. This is what I use on the fly. Incomplete blog ideas, tasks, or reminders. Often I go to my notes when I’m lost, need ideas, or am trying to remember something from last week. Occasionally I clean out old notes. It’s always cool to see the old “thoughts” sitting at the bottom, remembering how the original idea was so exciting. And has now grown into the blog and made its home within my blog. Looking back, it’s always fun to see the progression in this way. So I continue to add to my simple notes daily.

 

Application to my life ||

Google Keep makes sure to catch me on the fly. Making it easy to add ideas to within seconds, that are easy to find later.

 

Extra Credit || 

Let’s get it out there, there are A LOT of note-taking apps out there guys, and I’ve tried a whole load of them for myself. And what it comes down to for me, with Evernote and Keep, is that they are universal. Evernote is feature packed with a great design for building plans and outlines. Keeping things organized while they are developed. Where Keep is super simple and well, I straight love Google!

 

This is why I can honestly say, 'Google runs my life.' Click To Tweet

 

 


IFTTT Introduction Image

 

IFTTT

|| IFTTT Website ||

Description ||

This is probably the most useful app ever for bloggers as it automates tasks for you from different services. If THIS happens, then THAT happens in response. There a great number of different services, everything from Asana tasks, WordPress, Twitter, mobile device alarms, weather alerts, and so, so much more.

 

Function & Features ||

This services is free and has no upgrades or anything. You can make as many “widgets or triggers happen as you want. New Applets are created every day as you can customize them to your needs. Or simply make a new one!

 

App Uses ||

Here are 5 examples of how this helps me to completely automate my social media activity to cycle through the other services as I wish:

  1. A new tweet goes out to my new twitter followers every Friday (about once a month, I update it slightly)
  2. Any published WordPress post automatically makes a draft into Tumblr, so that I can easily edit it for Tumblr, and publishing there too.
  3. Any tweet I ever write is added to a Google Document so that I can easily track and improve my performance each month
  4. Any Instagram photo I upload is shared to a specific board on my Pinterest account, as well as a Facebook Album on my Page
  5. Any time I use a specific hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (#luvlifewlee) it is immediately shared to all three other profiles simultaneously (without “scheduling” anything).

 

Application to my life ||

It allows me to automate tasks to trigger when I do something once, I don’t have to manually do it several times in other places. It helps me track my progress too.

Choosing To Remain In Love

Choosing To Remain In Love

I’m going to take a shot here and admit what I truly think is a key factor to being in a happy,  long-term relationship with any partner. Put simply, I believe that love is a choice and that you must consciously choose to remain in love.

 

That’s right, you read correctly.
You choose to remain in love, each and every day.

 

There’s something to be said about your brain when you are in love.

When you are in love with someone, you produce lovely peptides that grant you chemical boosts of love hormones and other chemical reactions. You also may experience pleasant emotions by being near or with your partner. If you’re physically “in love” (aka addicted) to your partner, then you will believe instinctually that you are in love. This may sound silly, but do you really believe that you’re in love?

If you believe that you are in love emotionally, physically and mentally then maybe you can understand that this was a choice after all. You chose to allow yourself to fall in love with someone. There’s a level of the surrender of Will to being in love, and unknown and uncontrolled factor to this falling into love with someone. Put simply, there are people you cannot help but love.

That “I like him/her” feeling you got right from the start, your attraction to them physically and all that jazz. Yes, that’s all stuff you can’t help. But at some point you chose to continue to like them, to advance on your level of attraction with them and to dance with them to that jazz. If you ask me, the chemistry between beings does not change over time. This is a subconscious physical effect that people of the right magnetism has on you. But what you can do is consciously choose how you react to them.

So they key here is to realize that, keeping a relationship fresh takes conscious effort. A continuous choice of surrendering your will to the person you commit your love to. You do have to keep choosing to remain in love.

It sounds crazy like it’s a chore to stay in a state of love but honestly, it is… You must consciously continue to choose love.
