Living in a house with my mum and brother can be difficult sometimes. It’s even harder to move back home after living on your own for a while. When I was living by myself I loved it. I had so much space. I could decorate how I wanted to and everything could be exactly how I wanted it to be. It’s not the same now. Now that I’m back home again it’s even more frustrating being here.
I needed to create something that would provide me with peace and tranquillity. As I can’t really change the bathroom, kitchen or any other room in the house I decided to focus on my bedroom, my bedside table to be exact. For my own peace of mind I needed something I could look at and it would instantly calm my soul. Here is my bedside table. We have my incense tower which was purchased in Ibiza airport whilst still drunk and waiting for our flight home. It can hold 4 incense sticks and 1 incense cone! Below that we have my horse ornament. I don’t quite know the technical term for them but it’s one of those that has a miniature design of a mare and foal running through flowery grass with a couple of birds flying above them. I’ve had it for many years now and I still find it beautiful. Then we have my sea shell box. My mum got me this when she went to Ibiza (not the party side…). My first picture frame is one I got near enough straight after my dad died and I’ve always had that picture in it. The picture was taken when we were on a family holiday in Lanzarote. Neither me nor my dad were photogenic people so I think this is probably the only picture we really have together where he isn’t pulling a silly face and I’m not frowning at the camera. The picture frame has always been on every bedside table I have had. The second picture frame is of my number one boy. Now he loves the camera. He’s such a poser and always has been. The picture in the frame is a personal favourite of mine (and my mums favourite). My dog means the world to me and has been there ever since my dad died. He’s a big part of my life and holds a huge chunk of my heart. He’s kept me going in my darkest times and has always been able to make me laugh and smile. Below that are my crystals. I usually use them when meditating before I go to sleep. If my chakras are in need of a cleanse or need to be re-aligned I’ll use near enough all of them. If feeling a bit off-balance or one of my chakras feels blocked, I’ll just use the crystal that will help with that specific chakra. I’ve had these crystals for a few years now but it’s only this year I’ve started to really treasure and make the most out of them and needless to say they are pretty to look at! We have 4 Buddha’s in the picture. There are 3 mini Buddha’s. 2 below my first picture frame and 1 below my second. They came as a set of 6 and I have the other 3 are dotted around my bedroom. Not gonna lie, I did only buy them because I thought they were cute but I do like my Buddha’s. I love the history behind them. Their meaning of life and their message to others so when I saw the Buddha candle holder I was sold! Had to have it! I love my candles. I have many candles all over my room and I will always have a candle lit bath. Candles provide me with instant relief from tension and I find them extremely useful when it comes to meditating. Sometimes I don’t like meditating in complete darkness but I also don’t want my bedroom light on so I compromise with a candle! Or you can meditate whilst watching the flame. I am yet to try this but I am definitely going to give it a go before I move to Australia! Then we have my angel and soul cards. These have become part of my morning routine. I’ll wake up, shuffle the pack and when my intuition tells me to stop I’ll stop. I’ll spread the cards out and pick 2 that I am drawn to. What I love about these is how they have helped me trust my intuition. My intuition has always been spot on but I’ve always gone against it. It’s crazy to see how right my intuition can be, especially when I listen to it. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. I believe our intuitions are our souls talking to us. It’s up to us whether we choose to listen to them or not. Last but not least we have my coaster which says ‘Never put all your eggs in one basket. Sleep around, It’s fun’. An old friend got me that coaster when I left my job in Cheshire to move back home. I won’t get into the details as to why she decided to go for a coaster that said that…but it still makes me chuckle.
I made my bedside personal to me. A little bit of heaven and peace for me to have at the end of a day. My bedside table has kept me on the right track and has helped me remained focused on improving my mind, body and soul. It’s something I see every morning and every evening. I’m not saying you need to do the exact same, but you might find it helpful to have something like this in your home. Something for you to look at and instantly feel at peace.
The sun is shining today so I’m gonna head off to the yard soon to ride Bubbles! I hope you all have an amazing Wednesday!
Remember to always trust your intuition,
Sending love and light to you all,
