I started this blog in the beginning of 2017.
The idea behind my blog was to combine two of my passions: travel and wellness. I never expected it to predict one of the happiest times of my life: meeting the man of my dreams.
I mean - lets not get ahead of ourselves - he drives me freaking bonkers. But I'd rather spend a thousand life times being annoyed by him than waking up to anyone else.
He's my rock, my backbone, and my daily entertainment.
So how exactly does this coincide with my blog?
I'm sure some of you have seen pictures of my boyfriend - he's a pilot with a private plane.
Who else should I be dating after founding a blog called oils and airplanes? I literally predicted this relationship over two years before he came into my life.
I had a ton of self growth that had to occur before I would have recognized his purpose in my life. The girl two years ago would never have been happy with the man she ended up with today - nor would she recognize the need for him in her life.
I know many today say to never rely on a man/partner, but part of growing up is growing together with someone else. We aren't solitary creatures and our emotions have a purpose. My pilot grounds me.
Its amazing how I never recognized how scattered I was before. Even when I thought I was on top of my game, felt the growth, and thought I saw the big picture, I was really missing the depth of situations. While I don't always agree with his solutions, he's pragmatic - and that's exactly the balance I needed.
In 2018, I was working as a visual merchandiser for Target - terrified of my dream of owning a wellness center - terrified I wasn't good enough to achieve my goals. I didn't recognize that then, but I do now. I am closer to my dreams than I could have expected just a year ago and I'm so excited to see where I land in 2020.
I started manifesting that year. I knew something I wanted in my life was love. I had such a horrible dating life previously and I knew I needed to change my standards for the men I allowed into my life.
Below, I've created the ultimate MAN-ifestation list, a how to define your dream love, and a link to my 2020 vision board workshop. See you there!
Between yesterday and today, we have a lot going on both astrologically and cyclically. From the new black moon in Leo, the end of the retrograde, to the celebration of Lammas today. So what do these things mean – and more importantly, what do they mean for us?
This retrograde hit everyone a little harder than expected. But don’t think we’re out of it – the affects of the retrograde will continue into mid-August as Mercury “retraces” its steps. The retrograde affected things like communication, travel, technology, and relationships. No major decisions should be made directly before, during, or just after the retrograde.
However, this retrograde falls on a time that gives us power and momentum to LEAP into the next journey of our lives. With the moon turning to Leo and the seasonal change of Lammas, we are given the power to create abundance.
Lammas is the time for celebrating the first harvest. It marks the last weeks of summer and the return of fall, and is usually celebrated with bonfires, fairs, and feasting. Lammas marks the beginning of a shift in energies – from intense energy to a slow down. The Grain Mother during this time is heavily pregnant with the seeds of abundance
As we step into our Leo season, we throw away the stress thrust upon us during the retrograde and bring out the power that is the lion and lioness inside of us. The lion is about basking in the sun, creating its luxurious den, and becoming its most bold and powerful self.
So how can we create this den of abundance during this time? I created this journaling packet for you to invoke the abundance this shift brings us.
