Lifestyle Tips : Things I Do To Keep My Self Mentally And Spiritually Balanced During These Dark Times.

I know a lot of people enjoy Meditation, but after doing further research I realized that some people don't enjoy it, Some feel it's too long a process, and some actually find it boring.
Here is what I think- At first when I started meditating I hated it. It took so long to finish, listening to the Guided Meditation got so boring I Stopped and tried other things. I then returned to the basic things I do like, Playing with my Crystals, Burning sage to get rid of negative energy around my surroundings and myself, I enjoy using my Cards and Dice but I still felt drawn to the idea of mastering the Act of Meditation, I tried it again and slowly started liking it, or maybe I liked the voice of the speaker in the Guided Meditation, It was so soothing he put me to sleep so quickly, Since then I have not stopped Meditating. Another good thing about it is this- there’s research suggesting that the practice of meditation may reduce:
Anxiety (Y'all can see I made it bold, this is something many of us struggle with daily)
Blood pressure
Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and many more.
In a nutshell, it has many Mental and Physical Health Benefits, these are dark times and so much is going on in the world today, so what better time to start than now?
Meditation Helps Preserve the Aging Brain
A few years ago a study from UCLA found that long-term meditators had better-preserved brains than non-meditators as they aged. Participants who’d been meditating for an average of 20 years had more grey matter volume throughout the brain — although older meditators still had some volume loss compared to younger meditators, it wasn’t as pronounced as the non-meditators. "We expected rather small and distinct effects located in some of the regions that had previously been associated with meditating," said study author Florian Kurth. "Instead, what we actually observed was a widespread effect of meditation that encompassed regions throughout the entire brain."
Practice Daily meditation because the practice of staying present and mindful for a limited period of time can have numerous benefits for our mental and physical health, When we meditate, we can enhance our focus and decision-making and lessen our feelings of fear and stress.
Burning sage is is a powerful ritual, Sage Burning is a favorite practice of mine, and I have noticed the ancient practice of burning smudge sticks is making quite the comeback lately, especially on social media platforms I see a lot of people talking about it, still, some don't know what it does.
Sage has other names -For Example- common sage, garden sage, and Salvia officinalis. It belongs to the mint family, alongside other herbs like oregano, rosemary, basil, and thyme.
Sage has a strong aroma and earthy flavor, which is why it’s typically used in small amounts. Even so, it’s packed with a variety of important nutrients and compounds.
Sage is also used as a natural cleaning agent, pesticide, and ritual object in spiritual sage burning or smudging which is a practice of mine, I specialize in teaching people how to cleanse themselves and their homes using Sage and other Magickal Objects.
Burning sage is a powerful ritual
The ritual of sage burning has its roots in Native American tradition. Today, people burn sage and other holy herbs to cleanse a space or environment of negative energy, generate wisdom and clarity, and promote healing.
Warding Off Negative And Malicious Intents Towards Yourself Using The "Evil Eye". 
[I do this While Using these Specially Made Herbal Oils I made ]Contact Me For More Information
Ok. I am going to keep this one short and simple, Is somebody giving you the Evil Eye of jealousy or harboring evil and negative wishes towards you?  Here’s how to protect yourself. We’ve all heard the phrase “if looks could kill.” That’s precisely what happened to the unfortunate people who were turned to stone when they crossed paths with the mythological Medusa. Many of you would agree that the world is now filled with evil-minded individuals that about such hate in their hearts even during hard times like this they would still wish ill upon others, I was recently having a group conversation (Online- as we all need to practice social distancing ) and we were sharing our experiences in life, it was no shock to me when I heard one of the ladies say she still had to recently encounter hate comments/vibes from people she thought were her friends and should be there for her, having her back but instead were doing all they could to bring her down, this saddened me, I said to myself the world needs to end quick, God needs to come quick cos we Humans are the danger to mother earth.
Let me break it down for you - The casting of the evil eye easily affects people who have purchased a new vehicle or house, have a new high-paying job, or often travel. Even those wearing a new dress or jewelry are not exempt. It means that some powerful gawking by certain individuals can often turn to misfortune – for example, you falling sick, experiencing dullness, low mood, and drained energy, meeting with an accident, and having ill luck.
One Main tip I would share in the post, Among 100s of Practices I am knowledgable of this is one I personally do and also would encourage you to do
Get an Evil eye repellent: 
Hang a blue eye bead or dill herb on the main door or entrance of the property to ward off unwanted focus by visitors to your property, wear the evil eye bead, necklace or earrings to make sure it is potent and blessed with good energy, I always cleanse all my Talismans with the Moon Energy or Sage and some Chants.
Before I round up, There is a quote I love by Anais Nin "The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself", Let spirituality be the core foundation of your life, When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love, spend time spreading love and not hate, use whatever ability you have to create a fun, loving and peaceful environment (Be it at Work, Your Home, even extend it to your Friendships), The events happening lately is so sad and It's my deepest wish for it all to come to a swift end, for Humanity to be saved and for us all to be protected, No one knows tomorrow so why spend today with hate and grudge in your heart, do something today your tomorrow will thank you for. Blessed Be.
