Treasures— What I’ve Discovered Last Week
I like to discover new books by scrolling Amazon pages, seeing what are its recommendations, finding new authors. It’s what happened just a week ago, I was looking for a book about self-care and also meditation or mindfulness, and I discovered Arin Murphy-Hiscock’s publications. I have to tell, they’re not-the-same-old-kind-of book about these themes. One of her book is “The Witch’s Book of Self-Care” and it’s my currently reading. Don’t think about movie’s ways-of-illustrate these beautiful beings. Self-care and magic are about our mental, emotional and physical health by practicing some activities. It’s about listening our inner self, our energies, our natural flow. It’s about listening and praying “our own” Divine, whichever is its form. It’s a long way to be the best version we can be. The author explains how to take self-care through some herbs, or stones or even learning new writing techniques that can help us find our balance and living a fulfilling life. There are a lot of stereotypes about self-care; even if it can be a buzzword it’s also surrounded by a halo of confusion. I like reading affirmations that seem so simple but at the same time so difficult to remember in every-day life. Magical rituals, using herbs or candles, writing pages of gratitude bring us balance, slowness, concentration. You may think this could be about selfishness, I’m sorry but I must tell you, it’s only about self respect and self-love. So, if you don’t take self-care how can you take care of your darlings? How can you live a satisfying life? I can’t wait to finish this reading and go on in Arin Murphy-Hiscock’s books.
