This was originally a facebook post to the SKT group, if you can believe it. Haha. So I brought it here.
I am going to start the 22 weeks today 🙂. I had a false start a while back where I did Monday and realized that the cards were pretty intense energetically(?) and I thought maybe doing the coloring would ground the energies. I had originally wanted to do the coloring after getting better at blending. But instead I’m getting better at coloring as I….color. haha. I stapled over binder paper what I had written for Monday and in the notes section, but I think it’ll be interesting to read what I had written originally too.
Also, I think I’ll do it while video journaling too, and have that be my overflow journal so I don’t get overwhelmed. And it’ll be fun and more interactive in different ways. I also bought it into therapy. I was trying to decide which program to go with for now. It was between DBT, this book Adult Children of Abusive Parents, and the 22 Weeks. She looked at them a bit and said they all seemed fine right now, so go with your intuition, but also keep things simple (e.g. the grounding recitation can just become “I am grounded to the earth”).
So I think I’ll focus on the 22 weeks, and maybe incorporate DBT for mental strengthening Wednesday. And do 10 minute meditation on Monday, but 2 minutes for every other day, like the Adult Children book says.
For Tuesdays, I’ve been interested in Qi Gong and it seemed like the unvierse was bombarding me with these synchronicties a while back. Like it was kind of ridiculous. Luckily there’s a sliding scale place here for Saturdays. I hope to budget for it soon. But he also has free guided video thingies on his site so I can practice the moves, and I borrowed a book from the library. I saw in an email he sent out today that he recommends the book and has talked with the instructor, so that’s cool.
..I just looked and he also has a class on Tuesdays at the YWCA. I’d probably feel less anxious there, but I don’t have a membership….and so it’d be pricier and far away, and I ride the bus. But maybe I should look into it more. Plus, lucky lucky, I’m off Tuesday now.
I also bought a fancy wallet with Cat and Fish symbols, which is I what I’d searched for exactly, for the prosperity ritual part hehe. I’ll share it here on Thursday, or whenever I get it. It felt like a splurge but I think it’ll be good too. I hadn’t bought myself a new wallet before and I’m partly influenced by what Marie Kondo had to say about it. So yeah 🙂
The only thing I need to figure out now is Friday self-care, I think. That’ll probably be a bath and Sailor Moon but then I need to be pretty on it in terms of keeping the shower clean and dry regularly without overdoing it with harsh chemicals. Or it can be reading. Hm. Also whatever Saturday and Sunday are.
The other thing is being on my phone less, hehe. But maybe instead of just trying to get rid of it, I should focus on enjoying the 22 weeks and see how that changes me as is.
This was long. Thanks for reading! haha
