June 2015- Wake up and Smell the Coffee, or Just Say No to Individuality!

on July 2, 2015

With all my posts for Photo 101 I almost forgot to write up my regular monthly run down blog! June was quite a hectic busy month as well. Here’s how I did with my goals and aims..

Key Aims for 2015

FRIENDSHIP- Pretty good in June I think, quite a lot of things happened, and I felt some of my friendships are getting closer than they were before.

FUN- I did lots of things, and many of them interesting (which I’ll get to) but I think the most ‘fun’ thing I did was going to another gig!

CREATIVITY AND INSPIRATION- not so much writing wise, but I’ve been doing the Photo 101 photo project and been really enjoying it, even trying some of the more technical suggestions!

Goals/Aims

Regular Healing Clients- none this month

To be a supervisor- only thing I did really was quite a bit of overtime on one of the weeks.

To Finish My Book- worked on the grammatical errors, now just re=-reading and amending as needed.

To go to Glastonbury, Gaunts House and 3 Wishes fairy festival- sadly the fairy festival has been and gone, and I haven’t made it to the others either.

To be better at birthdays- have not been good with this at all this year 😦

go along to Street Spirit- have decided not to do this one, Saturdays are just too awkward for me.

Spend Less time on facebook- not been great..oops

reconnect with my pagan/witchy side- can’t think of anything specific apart from relating to my next goal..

go into nature more- yep, have been aiming for 3 times a week, and having a photo project has made me try harder.

watch less T.V- hardly been watching any

get into music again- as previously mentioned, I went to another gig! This time it was another nineties band I missed out the first time round, L7! Unfortunately we didn’t get a great view and no photos BUT we did have room to dance and they were very very cool!

Things I did in June

I went to the Inspiring Women meeting and we talked about challenges. Mine was about getting to Peru next year!

Miguel and I went down the seafront with my friends Susan, Fiona, Sara and Linda. There was a maritime festival going on when we went and there was supposed to be a drumming workshop there, that must have been cancelled as it never turned up! Luckily Susan had brought along some drums anyway, so we sat on the cliff tops and had a little play before having a walk about (and we got some yummy vegan friendly chocolate fondue with strawberries)! Then all went back to Susan’s house where we had soup, then she made a fire and held a small circle placing prayer logs into the fire.

Our friend Gareth came round for dinner one day and he came round another day too, also our friend Roberta visited.

I had to go to Camden for the L7 gig so we went a bit earlier and had a look around. I managed to find Cookies and Scream, which is a vegan friendly cake/cookie/etc stall in the Camden Lock market and I had a ‘Dowser’ which is half cookie, half brownie!

My circle was the following day and was about Living Your Dreams, and one of my friends that attended said she left feeling motivated so that’s good 🙂

Miguel ran his first workshop which was giving the Munay-Ki Rites and I was one of the people who attended. It’s far too complicated for me to explain fully here, but it’s a series of Peruvian rituals that connect you to various energies and give you extra protection, and strengthen your psychic abilities. Once you have them you can also give them to others, but I have to wait 6 months first to fully experience them myself first. I’ve only had little changes so far but for Miguel they affected him quite a lot, including helping him to lose weight!

I went to the Anti Austerity march in London. Luckily a coach got arranged from Southend so it was affordable and quite a lot of people I know went on the coach too. It was a good day. Thousands of people were there and there was lots of amazing banners. I just hope we all keep the pressure on!

Our friend Crystal hosted a Summer Solstice fire ceremony at her house, so we went to that, there was only a few of us, but it was a lovely ceremony.

I had a week off as it was my birthday. In that week, Roberta visited again, I went to see my mum and brother and grandad, it was my birthday so Miguel took me out for lunch at The Railway Hotel. We had the celebration proper the day after when 10 of us all went for dinner at The Oaktree.

Think that covers it, phew!
