Ways to Feel a Little Happier! Rituals of Self Preservation, Samskaras and a New Moon Solar Eclipse
Today the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo and it’s strong emotional influence prompted the instinct for me to write again. I haven’t written in a while, which can induce pangs of guilt and anxiety at the fact of time going by without dividing all of your attention to the things you wish to.

There seems to be so much pressure these days with what is expected of...
