My Spiritual 7

For the bloomers who are aware of their chakras, energy, and crystal healing. And to those who aren’t familiar but still reading. The chakras are associated with different aspects of life that when one is completely mindful of them all, there is balance. Metaphysics is largely at play here, it’s not magic or witchcraft. 😂 It’s truly just a matter of mindfulness and meditation. My style of writing is to give readers the information they need to do their own research. My experience is mine only but personal experiences do inspire. So that’s what you see above… a quick overlook of the 7 major chakras & the corresponding crystal I cleanse, charge, and meditate with. If you’re interested in crystals, I hope you found this post a little charming. If you’re not and/or just passing by, I hope I planted a little seed of inspiration. Btw, that’s my handwriting!

Meditation in Under 2 Minutes


I found this super short & funny video about meditation that I wanted to share. I’ve been meditating for a few years and recently it’s gained a lot more attention in society. I think that’s a great, positive thing for people to be excited about though. But from one soul to another, here is a truly simple video for anyone who meditates. From beginner to expert it’s always nice to review the essentials. I just downloaded the app Headspace on my iPhone to help make meditation more apart of my daily regimens. It’s also available for Android and accessible on desktop computers. I’ll be sure to write a review on my use and if it helps me. 😊

Namaskar!

Mala Prayer Beads

I’m very happy to share my new mala prayer beads that I received in the mail today. I was excited to get them because I’ve never had prayer beads before. It can seem conflicting for someone like me to pray but I do meditate.

Some background info about me… I don’t believe in a higher being (other than the universe itself) so I never thought it plausible to pray if not to someone. I also don’t practice the religion of Catholicism that I was brought up into as a child. Rather, in my teenage years, I learned about Buddhism and have found great comfort in it. When people ask I do say I’m Buddhist. It is, too, conflicting because to label myself as such, I feel I’d have to devote my life to it and free myself of all attachments/suffering.

Moving forward: I found that praying does not need to be to any single entity. It can simply be setting forth new goals, intentions, ambitions, and sending that good energy into the world. It’s like that biblical saying of speaking things into existence.

I truly believe in natural healing powers that start with your energy infused with positivity and mindfulness. I purchased it from Mala Prayer and spent a few days looking through their assortment and picking one out. This one here is an African Bloodstone mix that I chose simply by attraction and colors. Their website shares a lot o insight about how to use and care for beads. I suggest a visit if you’re the slightest bit interested!

The Journey, Part 1

I wanted to share something that was sent to the blog’s email alyssablooms@gmail.com as it was shared with me. Xumbalu – The Play of Music. They create some feel good music for meditating. I’ve been playing it for about a week now and I really enjoy it’s simplicity. There are songs that are pretty similar but the subtle differences in them brought me some good meditation. Try something different!

Moby’s Meditation Music

Some people wake up and want to work out… others wake up and want to meditate. I’m apart of the latter. I recently found out that Moby released his very own meditation music that pretty much anyone can gain access to for free. It’s called Long Ambients 1 and comes with a total of 11 tracks. They range from 17 to a little over 35 minutes each in length. For anyone that’s already into meditation, it’s a wonderful addition to your already growing meditation playlist. And for anyone that’s just getting into meditating, you are welcome. Click here to download LA1 or find out how you can stream it. (Both for free!)
