Feeling sassy today 🙈 I recently discovered David Kibbe's body types and figuring mine out was an unexpected breakthrough in terms of how I perceive my body. I know this types of classifications are not for everyone, and usually I'm not a fan either. This one seems to describe my body and face fearures perfectly though, and even helped me understand why I'm drawn to the kind of style that I'm drawn to. Kibbe's types are determined based on the proportion and combination of yin and yang in your body and face features which is quite interesting, especially when compared to your mental structure of masculine / feminine polarity (of course I had to geek out on this!). Turns out I'm the Theatrical Romantic type. Basically round, full shapes, thin waist, petite/short in terms of height, very yin body, but my face is more yang, with square jaw and visible cheekbones etc, sometimes described as a romantic face with a hint of the devil/mystery/darkness, haha! Figuring my type out helped me see how over the years I tried to make my body fit into something that it's not, trying to hack my body image hoping to change it into something else, something that is against its natural form. I especially struggled with body image issues in my teenage years and early adulthood, and I know that many girls (more than we think) struggle(d) with it too. It's good to be able to see some things in a new light, even though I'm long past my body image issues, things can always improve in this department in terms of the amount of self-love and understanding that we have for our one and only beautiful body. Have you ever heard about Kibbe's types? What do you think about it? What's yours? I'm curious! #davidkibbetheory #davidkibbe #bodytype #theatricalromantic #selflove #selfcare #bodypositive #bodylove
Started reading this book (eng: Indigenous Psychology of Slavs. An introduction to the authentic science of the soul.) by two Polish psychology professors. Pankalla is a precursor of myth therapy and culture therapy in Poland. As a psychologist myself I'm rather curious about what these gentlemen have to say. Glad to see these kinds of topics being picked up by academics. #indygenicznapsychologiasłowian #slavic #slavicpagan

Today is the first day of me going back to work after radiotherapy. It's been two weeks. I'm excited but also slightly nervous about it. So I did a little spread to help me ease myself into the experience. 1. How am I doing today? The Lovers 2. What are my strengths? Justice 3. What should I look out for? The Magician It's all majors, what the hell! This shall be an interesting day. Wish me luck 🍀 #thewildunknowntarot #thewildunknown #tarot #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotcommunity
My Knight of Pentacles. I shuffled the deck for a long while to find a card that I'd colour next. Didn't feel right. So I went through the cards face up to see what catches my attention. When I stumbled upon the Knight of Pentacles I felt that he's the guy today. I never really thought about this Knight as a person who is a champion at taking care of their health and body - this is the aspect that jumped at me today. This Knight values persistence over short term gratification, is committed to doing what's right for the body because he/she knows that when the body thrives, so does the mind and the spirit. Being a Knight of the element of Earth, of course he/she chooses to build from the ground up. I'm glad that this is the card that I chose. I can relate to this archetype especially since I made huge changes in my health routine since the radiotherapy. Making good, adult, responsible decisions to nourish my body in a way that makes sustainability the most important criterion, not necessarily pleasure. #DIYRWS #KnightofPentacles #tarot #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotcommunity #deckmods #pamelacolemansmith #riderwaite #riderwaitetarot
The Devil done! Looks like it's going to go the dark route for me, let's see how it unfolds. You can probably notice that I added the alchemical formula Solve et Coagula on the Devil's hands, which refers to the process of dissolving and coming back together. This formula refers to the transformation of Self, evolution and growth through breaking ourselves down to put us back together stronger and more aware. #DIYRWS #TheDevil #tarot #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotcommunity #deckmods #pamelacolemansmith #riderwaite #riderwaitetarot
A quick body - heart - mind spread with the RWS that I printed and cut out yesterday. I kinda like it black and white! Anyway, the idea behind printing the deck was to color it myself, treating it as a meditative exercise to deepen my personal connection to the archetypes of tarot. I'm still pondering on how I want to approach it. If you're interested in joining on this project, I prepared a set of downloadable sheets that you can print out at home (best to do it on cardstock paper) and cut out yourself. You'll find a link to this freebie on my blog (link in bio), in the Offerings tab. I'd love this to become a thing, to be able to see others' versions of the colored cards, to compare notes and share our experiences and thoughts. If you do, just use the hashtag #DIYRWS so we can see each other's cards. Stick to your own pace and style - whether you do it in one weekend or take an entire year to complete - this is *not* a challenge. #RWS #riderwaitesmith #tarot #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotcommunity #deckmods #pamelacolemansmith #riderwaite #riderwaitetarot
Spring is definitely here. 16°C, sunny, warm. The soil is moist and muddy, plants slowly releasing new buds. But the lack of snow also revealed the massive damage done to the trees by the orkans that haunted these regions throughout autumn and winter, lots of broken trees and even more branches laying around in stacks. Hopefully the winds will be more merciful this year. We hiked to Mount Wiezyca jacketless today 👌 #hiking #wiezyca #spring
Made some cute little crystal intention bracelets for myself today 😽 Love weaving bits of magick into wearable stuff. #chrysoprase #chrysocolla #jasper #sodalite
Finished bookbinding project, turned out pretty good I think ♥️ Lucifer: Princeps by Peter Grey. I've been obsessed with the archetype of Lucifer recently but I always strayed away from the biblical paradigm because of my catholic upbringing. Years of work to remove my aversion finally starting to pay off. Can't wait to dive into deep work with this archetype.
Bookbinding at home 📖 Glued the pages together and covered them with a blood red inner cover. Probably going to be doing the hardcover tomorrow to be able to enjoy my book during the weekend. I'm thinking black faux leather 🤔 #bookbinding
I've had a lot of time to think lately. About all sorts of things. The process itself need not be anyone's concern but here are some of the conclusions and just generally things I want to say. I'll be switching my account to private for now. I'm not going to continue with any challenges in march. I want to pursue and explore some things from an angle that I ignored for years. I feel that I'm ready now. Last Days in the Desert - this movie blew my mind like no movie has in a long time. Go watch it if you're into jungian psychology and/or shadow work. It's packed *full* of symbolism and food for the soul. I want to up my game when it comes to taking care of this earthly vessel of my body even more. Introducing bigger changes, not sure how far I'll take it but hoping to stick with it. I'm not leaving or anything - hit me up if you want to talk. I will be spending less time scrolling through though.
