@Phoenix_Fire Congrats on your organizing, Danni- your altar and meditation space looks amazing! Taking the time to cleanse and organize really helps to refresh the space- great job!
@MeganB A crocheted cushion would look amazing, but I have no doubt it would be quite the project to make one large enough to comfortably sit on! Fabric is a good option- have you ever done those “sleepover pillows” before? You just need two pieces of fabric, scissors and something to stuff it with- it can be made in about 20 mins and is super comfy!

@Sea I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying the meditation videos, Sea! I agree, meditation can be tricky at first, so the gentle guides can really help to ease you into a meditative practice. Thanks for sharing, and wishing you all the best with your meditations!
@ValentineMoonBabe Yes, you ARE love! I think it is awesome that you keep a journal and record your meditation efforts- now you can look back on where you were and see just how far you’ve come in your journey! And it sounds like you keep it interesting and fresh with all the great inclusions you add. Awesome work- keep on going strong and having fun with it!
And you are so right about the dog bed- I never thought of that before, but it would be a great (and very comfy) floor cushion! Brilliant!
@Amaris_Bane Congrats on diving in to explore chakra work- it sounds like you were able to do a full scan of your chakras and learn where your strengths/areas to improve are! That is amazing- and I have to say that I love the affirmations you chose for your Solar Plexus Wishing you all the best as you continue to open your chakra- enjoy the process!
@Jeannie1 I remember you sharing about your yoga experiences in the past, Jeannie- it sounds like you have stuck with your practice and that you are really thriving with it, congrats to you! I love your meditation spot- how nice to have your plants and fresh air close by, it looks like a great place to relax! Good for you, Jeannie- keep on doing what you love!
@Melinda6 Sometimes it takes a while for things to click into place- I’m so glad you have found what works for you, Melinda! It sounds like you are a pro at weaving some meditation time into your schedule and that it really helps you a lot. You’re doing awesome- I wish you many more happy meditations as you work towards your goals!
@Siofra_Strega Thank you again for your deep dive post exploring your meditation practices, Siofra- it was a delight to read!
@Carrie4 12 years of meditations is very impressive- congrats to you, Carrie! Group meditations can be very powerful, but I’ve also found that can be very gentle too- the same as meditating on your own, but with a feeling of shared energy. And yes! Walking meditations are awesome- although with all of the movement and stimuli, I’ve found it really hard to stay silent while walking around with the group
@Jem1 It sounds like a very beautiful experience, Jem- I think spirit work is an area of magick that is particularly strong at drawing out emotions and making us feel things beyond ourselves. Good for you for develing into ancestor work- I’m sure your great-grandma appreciated such a lovely offering
@Amethyst You always make me smile with your words- haha I get the “bugs crawling feeling” too, and it is when I know I’m at the point where I can’t control my thoughts anymore. I think it’s my body’s way of telling me “meditation time is up!” Guided meditations are gold- they are really so helpful for guiding thoughts and helping us relax Thank you so much for this sweet morning meditation- I love it!
@Kasandra Those are some really deep thoughts about death and its importance, or rather, essential role in the cycle of life. It is natural to fear and even hate death at times, but reading this I feel it is thanks to the end that we can enjoy the beautiful things during the rest of the cycle Beautiful chant, Kasandra- very well written!
@Mistella We were on the same wavelength, Mistella- you were prepping for the challenge before the challenge even existed! Your intuition is really on point! Beautiful work with the Zodiac meditations- I’m a big fan of them, and I love how you drew on people in your life to tie in with each sign And congrats on completing the Meditation Roots course- that’s a big accomplishment! Great work and thanks to you for joining in
@Silverbear Wise words from a wise soul- thank you for your helpful meditation tips and advice!
@NickWick Well said, Nick! Meditation really can be tough- I tried to word the challenge in a way that was honest but also encouraging. I think you did a great job with that here- thank you for sharing about your meditation experience, I’m glad it has been helpful for you! Tea and music meditations have a special place in my heart too
@MeganB It sounds like you enjoyed a blissful moment in nature, focusing on the natural world around you A few mindful moments to refresh and recollect can be just as powerful as an hour-long meditation in my opinion, good for you! And look at those cute little sprouts!
@Debra2 That is amazing, Debra! The meditation may not have gone the way you originally planned, but it sounds like you got the message you needed to hear Perhaps consulting your cards could help reveal more information about the shadowy figures- if you feel that is something worth exploring? Either way, great job and thanks for sharing- good luck with your future meditations!
@AileyGrey Same here! Busy schedules can make meditation a challenge indeed. I can manage a quick gratitude meditation at night, but anything longer runs the risk of me falling asleep I’m with you, Kristin- morning meditations are bliss! I hope you enjoy your shower meditations and that you can find some that you really enjoy Happy summer break!
@Marsha It is my pleasure, Marsha- I’m so glad you enjoyed the theme! And it sounds like you found the perfect meditation- it’s really special when there’s something that just aligns so perfectly that we want to watch it over and over Great work- I hope you continue to enjoy your work with the Morrigan- may She watch over and guide you!
@Janae_Rochele Meditation work can really do wonders for your breathing- I’m glad to hear it helps you with your asthma and the weather changes And yes! Outdoor meditations immersed in nature are so lovely- it sounds like you’ve got a perfect spot to meditate, as well as a great routine- I love the sound of “Meditation Magick Mondays”! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your heartfelt meditation experience, as well as those lovely affirmations. May they continue to echo in your mind and heart- setting you free from the doubts and fears of the past that is gone. Great job!
@Mary25 Meditation cards are awesome- what a great way to guide your meditation time in a good direction! It sounds like you had a really nice meditation and that it was a big success- I really struggle to let go of the urge to itch, or to feel pain. You’re doing amazing, Mary! Thank you for sharing and for joining in the challenge!
@BrightBear Ohhh nooo- I’m so sorry to hear about your lost voice!
