Daily Rituals...

This past August I took the plunge and started doing Wanderluxe full-time without any other projects/freelance/side hustles.  And, while working for yourself is super rewarding and challenging, the lack of structure kind of threw me for a loop the first few months of being in it. 

I realized I needed to create a structure for myself with some daily rituals and self care.  I now schedule about 20 minutes in the morning and evening for meditation. This little ritual helps me ground and create the mood for my day and at night it helps me wind down and quiet my brain. I like to burn a little copal incense from Incausa to set the mood and plug in my headphones for a deprivation chamber effect.

Here are some links to my favorite apps/meditation videos:
    Guru Jagat-Magnificence Meditation
    Mindbliss-esoteric meditation app for when you're ready to get weird
    Calm-app with great meditations and adult bedtime stories

Eclectic Minimalism...

Last week I showed you how I would style an Abundance altar here. I want to continue to discuss little ways that I am creating space for myself amidst the chaos of our modern world.  In 2018, my goal is to take a deep dive into creating a solid self care practice and to share my findings with you. 
Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert! If you have nuggets of wisdom, books, practices, blogs, podcasts, ANYTHING! please share by replying to this email.  I would love to start a conversation and community around this with you all.  
My hope is to provide value in these weekly newsletters instead of just updating you on my show schedules and events (although I'll be sharing that kind of stuff, too). If there's anything you've particularly enjoyed from these emails that you would like to hear and see more of, let me know.

This week let's chat about a hot topic over the last few years: minimalism.
For a long time when I thought of minimalism, I would get this futuristic, sparse image in my brain. I wanted to have less, need less, clean less, have a smaller burden, but I am by nature a collector.  It comes with the territory of being a maker and an appreciator of art and handmade goods, I think.  It wasn't until recently that I realized that minimalism looks different on everyone and that it's more about your state of mind.
The photo above is a shot of my new studio space with @saintsomething. I think it really embraces the vibe of less is more.  I'm really enjoying this space right now because of its openness and abundance of light.  I'm looking forward to continuing to share how we tackle the constant challenge of maintaining a minimal work space.

Styling your Space with Intention

People often ask how they can style the Wanderluxe Petit wall hangings in their home.  Since each Petit wall hanging is based off of an ancient rune, they all hold powerful meanings. I love the idea of creating an altar with a few pieces that hold intentions and meaning for you. Since I'm currently enrolled in Lacy Phillips Opulence Manifestation course, I thought it would be fun to show you how I would style an abundance altar featuring the Wealth Rune Petit wall hanging.

Pictured above is the Wealth Rune Petit wall hanging (still a few pieces left here). I also pulled The Empress card from my Wild Unknown Tarot deck. The Empress symbolizes abundance, creativity and divine female energy (not a bad card to have on your altar). A handful of citrine gems help aid in manifestation and direct personal power + decisiveness.  White sage and a white candle are always great for cleansing a space and getting ready for a meditation or tarot reading.  What are hoping to manifest in 2018? Love? Family? Focus? If you're looking to style an intentional space or altar in your home take a look through some of the other Petit wall hangings here.
