HOW TO BE AN ALIEN LUNAR DEATH QUEEN GODDESS

It’s a big statement to make and I may not be the human to make such a statement but here is my advice on how to be an Alien Lunar Death Queen Goddess in 2015.ALIEN PRINCESS1. LOOK TO THE COSMOS

How do you expect to appreciate this life if you don’t appreciate the vastness of it? When you’re coming home from the bar at 11pm, or from your friends house or the library, look up towards the heavens and appreciate the stars. Even if you don’t believe iN anything, you can at least appreciate the beauty of the night (and the moon and the stars and Mars). Who knows who’s living out there?! Alien friends may be trying to communicate and we may not know!

2. APPRECIATE YOUR DREAMS

Have you woken up from a striking dream at an uncanny hour for the past three nights? Take note! Your dreams say a lot about your present situation in life as well as what you may be going through in the future (not to mention what your unconscious may be potentially dealing with). Keep a dream journal, or use an app (I love the Dreams Diary and Dreams Mood app for Iphone ) and figure out what is is your dreams are telling you. Find connection to the part of yourself that resides in the dark.

3. WORK WITH CRYSTALS

Need some peace? Grab an amethyst. Need to channel your higher power in every sense?? Grab a crystal quartz point or amethyst. Work with stones and find your center or whatever it is you need to find. A good list of crystal correspondences can be found HERE.

4. DAYDREAM

How do you expect to connect to the ultra-cool, astral lunar death queen goddess part of yourself if you  never let your imagination take over and drift off? There’s a reason the imagination is so powerful and that’s because it has the power to literally create and shape the world around us. Buddha once said “what you think, you become’. Thoughts become things, so may as well drift into that sweet spot and daydream yourself into the dimension where everything makes sense.

5. WEAR WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT TO WEAR

Want to wear an oversize floral tee with leather leggings, a vintage flannel and a pair of Dr. Martins, coupled with a grandpa sweater and red lips? GO FOR IT. Wear whatever your little alien, death queen, astral traveling soul desires. If you feel powerful in it (and it’s decently appropriate for the situation) GO FOR IT. What screams ” I control intergalactic dimensions” more than a great outfit and some confidence?? Absolutely nothing.

ALIEN PRINCESS 26. FIND WHAT YOU LOVE AND OWN IT

What screams GODDESS OF THIS LIFE AND BEYOND more than owning your own passion?? Whether it’s film, math, fashion, art, music or medicine, having a passion in this life is a gift! Own it. Use what you love and make a difference, inspire yourself and others, create your own reality based on this passion and give back to the world in which it was born. Even if you don’t have a singular passion, do what you love and you’ll be sending all the good vibes back into the world.

7.DAYDREAM ABOUT ALIENS

How can you expect to be an alien death queen goddess if you don’t think about aliens?! The probability that there is something beyond this life is astounding, so you may as well take some time to think about what this would mean in the context of your own reality. Or, at least take time to daydream about how cool having an alien bff would be (and what they would look like)!

8. FIND CONNECTION

It may be finding connection through yoga, through religion, through divination, through friendships, but finding deep rooted connections is so, so important. Find your roots. Own them. You can’t expect to live an interstellar life if you don’t know where exactly your roots began.

9. WEAR WEIRD COLORED LIPSTICK

This is simply because nothing will make you feel more like a lunar goddess than wearing lilac lipstick with silver eyeliner. Or maybe you’re more of a inky blue kinda girl, regardless. experiment with how you look. The way in which you travel through this life does have an impact on how you feel. Wear what makes you feel like the lunar alien death queen goddess you are.

10. RIDE YOUR CRYSTAL COVERED CHARIOT THROUGH THIS LIFE AND THE NEXT AND BE GRATEFUL FOR IT

Be unapologetically who you are. Ride the crystal chariot you created through this life and the next with an unyielding sense of appreciation for everything and everyone who has shaped you into the god(dess) you are and own it. Be thankful for what this life has taught you and envision your future; find what you love and believe in it without any doubts and it will manifest. Ride the unyielding wave of appreciation for who you are and what you encompasses and this world will give you amazing things.

OWN YOUR INNER ALIEN GODDESS AND CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY.

I hope everyone finds some sense of peace and comfort today.

Namaste,

Gabriela

Sundays at Stonehenge

Today was a wonderful day of firsts and lasts. I’ve known that I wanted to go to Stonehenge since before my plans to study in England were solidified. Beyond that, I knew that I wanted to go as close to my birthday as possible. Well, folks, dreams come true. I spent my last day as a 20-year-old at Stonehenge and Bath; to say it was incredible is an understatement. I was born on February 2nd, also known as Imbolc. Imbolc is a Gaelic holiday that’s been adopted by neo-pagans as a celebration of the earth beginning to wake up and get ready for spring; it’s a day of light and new beginnings. Classically, Imbolc honors the Celtic goddess Brigid, the goddess of inspiration, fire and light. What better way to mark the beginning of a new year than to visit an ancient landmark on a day that honors a Celtic diety?! Although the Druids didn’t build Stonehenge, (it dates back 5000 years, way before the Celts), the stones were used as markers at the solstices and Stonehenge was probably used as a spiritual gathering place as well. Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetAlthough the stones were smaller than I anticipated, and I couldn’t actually touch them (what a bummer), it was still so incredible to get to see Stonehenge in real life.There were lots of sheep and ravens and it was definitely a surreal feeling to look around and see this ancient landmark against the beautiful English countryside. This past year has been the best year yet. Of course, there’s always turbulence, but I’m thankful for all the opportunities and experiences I’ve had this past year. I started 2015 on a different continent and I’m starting 21 the same way.  My mantra and intention for the year is “I will live in love, gratuity, presence, abundance and joy”. I’m sure everything else will fall into place after that.

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 presetI got so close to this raven, which happens to be my favorite bird. The raven is the bird of the goddess The Morrigan, a Celtic triple goddess. Pretty perfect for 21 and Stonehenge. Ravens are typically considered messengers, they’re linked with intuition, the occult and the other side. 10582809_10152537612921207_6144597560751144715_o 10974482_10152537614051207_3621929270395187131_o 10945696_10152537614781207_5906529860533202302_o10397182_10152537613561207_8082965418265180698_ounnamed (1)Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with a6 presetAfter Stonehenge we went to Bath, but that’s a post for later this week. Happy Sunday folks. Here’s to a new year, new adventures and lots and lots of abundance and love!

Bridges

I think one of the things that scares me most is the idea of living a completely and utterly static life. I’ve talked about my relationship with change a lot on here already, and recently my relationship with what could be and what will be has changed even more. My parents will be moving from California back to San Diego around this time next year, and then my sister and I will be graduating.  Moving around a lot growing up was really difficult as it was happening, but 10 years later, I’m so thankful for the experience. I’ve grown to love the new, to love the promise that things will change. Even when things are different and scary, knowing that things will be different tomorrow holds a special kind of comfort.

1 (2)One of my most recent goals is to explore and adventure more. I won’t be in Columbia much longer so I want to see all that I can. I want to go to more cemeteries and old, historic buildings. I want to visit more abandoned places and museum and I want to make every day an adventure. We aren’t promised anything and regret is an enemy I never, ever plan on meeting. I don’t want to live a static life. I want to see all I can see and do all I can do.2 (2)3 (2)4 (2)6 (1)5 (1)Photos by Alexandra Herstik, @alexyael
