What kind of destiny are you creating for yourself? These are common habits that are toxic to your spiritual identity.

Stop doing these things today and you can look forward to a brighter, healthier, and happier tomorrow.

Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.

― Mahatma Gandhi

  1. Stop pretending your problems don’t exist. Face them. The longer you ignore them, the stronger they will get!

  2. Stop putting your happiness or life satisfaction in the hands of others.

  3. Stop pretending your mistakes never happened. Embrace them. Learn from them. Grow from them. They made you who you are.

  4. Stop telling yourself you can’t do something before you’ve given it an honest effort.

  5. Stop neglecting the things that are important to you.

  6. Stop putting the needs of other people first. Take care of yourself. Love yourself. Become your own best friend.

  7. Stop trying to be just like someone else. Instead, create the best version of you.

Face your problems. The longer you ignore them, the stronger they will get!

  1. Stop waiting for a time – retirement, graduation, a promotion – when you can be happy. Instead, learn to find happiness in your current life.

  2. Stop spending time with people who bring you down.

  3. Stop questioning your self-worth based on external forces. Your value comes from the inside.

  4. Stop working for someone else’s dream. Set your own goals. Make them meaningful.

  5. Stop being jealous of others. Either go out and achieve those things for yourself, or embrace the life you do have.

  6. Stop believing that you can’t change. You can.

  7. Stop minimizing other peoples’ compliments and maximizing their criticisms. Flip this dynamic around.

  8. Stop focusing on avoiding what you don’t want. Instead, focus on going after what you do want.

  9. Stop being too afraid of making a mistake to take action.

  10. Stop comparing yourself to other people. You are not other people. You are you!

  11. Stop wasting energy worrying about things you cannot change.

  12. Stop believing that other people’s opinions matter more than your own.

  13. Stop pretending you don’t have time to do the things you love. You can make time for anything that you decide is important to you.

  14. Stop saving joy for special occasions.

  15. Stop beating yourself up over mistakes and imperfections. You’re just a human being.

  16. Stop choosing the path of least resistance. If it doesn’t align with your values, it isn’t your way.

Stop comparing yourself to other people. You are not other people. You are you!

  1. Stop blaming others for your misfortunes and unhappiness.

  2. Stop letting your fear of failure keep you from chasing your dreams.

  3. Stop waiting for your circumstances to change. Take charge of your life.

  4. Stop taking time away from the people you love to spend with people you only tolerate.

  5. Stop wasting energy on regret for a past mistake you cannot change.

  6. Stop letting shame keep you from apologizing, admitting you’ve been hurt, or doing anything else that keeps you from healing and moving forward.

  7. Stop expecting perfection of yourself, your loved ones, and your co-workers.

  8. Stop feeling guilty about indulging in free time or other kinds of self-care.

  9. Stop keeping yourself busy for the sake of being busy.

  10. Stop rushing through life. Learn to savor it.

  11. Stop saying ‘yes’ to things you would rather not do.

  12. Stop making your life more complicated than it needs to be.

If you’re ashamed to bear your habits, perhaps you need to get rid of them…

As Stephen King once wrote:

A man who can’t bear to share his habits is a man who needs to quit them.

How many of the habits above do you engage in? How many would you admit to a friend? A stranger? Yourself?

If these habits are causing you shame or unhappiness, quit them today. You’ll feel so much better when you do.

Plant Spirit Guide

I am a shamanic plant practitioner working through my family lineage of Slavic traditional witches, a certified herbalist, permaculture designer and work intimately with Plant Spirits. Everyone has a special Plant Spirit that they are attuned to and intuitively work with, whether they are aware of it or not. At times in our lives certain plants will reach out to us, they have knowledge to share, messages from our ancestral lineages, or wish to share their medicines with us. You might feel drawn to a certain tree or plant and then find out that you have a health condition that plant has the power to help heal. The world of plants is intimately connected to the world of humans.

I will shamanic journey to the Otherworld and see which Plant Spirits are around you that are resonating with your energy at this time and wish to come through with their medicine and messages.

Please provide me with a recent photo of yourself and if you have any plants, or trees that you have been attracted to recently, and wish to understand more of what they are trying to communicate, you are encouraged to share that as well. As part of my intuitive reading,included as well is pertinent facts and details of the plants in question; their medicinal values, how to work with them, ecology, folklore and perhaps even past life connections they have to you and your family line.

I will provide you with your main Plant Spirit guide that comes through in my journey as well as any others that may be as well. I will share some rituals, meditations, herbalist teachings or anything else that might help you in connecting and gaining a deeper understanding of your Plant Spirit Guide at this time.

I look forward to facilitating this step into the enchanted realms with you!

Nature Connection Guide

Do you feel that Nature is trying to communicate with you? Do you have a connection to certain, trees, plants, or animals and wondering what that means for you? The Natural world is full of Otherworldly messengers, from the Elemental Beings, Nature Spirits, Animal Spirits, Fae and others who are constantly in communication with us through the veils between our world and theirs. In this 1 hour session, I intuitively help guide you with the help of your Spirit Guides, to help you understand what the beings of Nature are wishing to communicate with you and how you can create a deeper bond of connection to them. I would also be happy to guide you to rituals, meditations, protections (if need be) and the use of herbs and plant spirit allies that would be of assistance to you.

I look forward to assisting you on your enchanted journey with the Spirits of Nature!
