I’m starting this blog series in an attempt to find my way to “chill” because yo gorl has almost no chill – only now instead of that being a personality trait it’s causing hormonal fluctuations that my body doesn’t know how to process anymore which then leads to me passing out … which is no bueno. I consider myself agnostic because I’m not sure there is/are a god/s, but I’m not going to tell you they can’t possibly exist either. I do however enjoy the idea of trying out different forms of meditation to see if any of them will work for me, which brings me to my latest adventure – using tarot cards as a point of focus for meditation. Let’s see what cards I pull today, shall we?
Thirty Seven – The Nonbinary
Thinking Outside the Box
Shades of Grey
As I pulled my card today I was contemplating how to fix my sleep schedule. For some reason unbeknownst to me, for the past two weeks I’ve been alternating sleeping between about 4 hours and about 7 hours. On 7 hours I feel mostly good; on 4 hours I feel rather terrible. So as I shuffled my deck I asked of myself if there’s any one thing I could do to make this better, maybe a habit I could form, perhaps something I could use that would “flip my off switch” so to speak. To pull a card about regeneration while thinking about sleep and lusting after its reparative properties I did not receive is hilarious. Perhaps this is a reminder that there is no one right way to get to sleep. Certainly habits can help, but the answer specifically of how to sleep at will is a murky, grey area. Previously when I’ve had issues I’ve turned to every old-fashioned sleep aid I could think of, but perhaps I need to just start experimenting.
If you have any outside the box things that help you sleep let met know.
