Shringar : Adornment 🌸
Every morning, or afternoons when I wake up late, I bathe, then I lovingly massage my skin with oils..coconut 🥥 or pomegranate, wear my beautiful clothes that have been packed away for so long, add jewels on my body💎 , put fallen feathers in my hair, and on some days I paint my face, extending the dots tattooed around my eyes and chin into trying-to-be-symmetrical tribal patterns.
I use different scents for my body..one day jasmine, another citrus🍋, maybe coffee..
I’ve always been working from home, now more than ever because my studio is right next to my bedroom. That was more the absent professor vibe : no meals no shower no day or night.
So this is a real change for me. A really lovely one!
I am considering what this all means, and why it makes me feel good. Is it a subconscious adaptation to this lockdown and isolation? I have felt myself expanding with the power of the feminine in the last year as never before, so is it a part of my personal growth?
How I got here..could be either, or both. However, it feels like what I’m doing..this time I am giving myself daily..is about self love. I’m not doing this for anybody else but myself.
I am aware that this could sound superficial, however this process has become my time with myself separate from what I must allot to take care of my body and my mind ✨
I am connecting more with the feminine, I am caring even less (if that was possible) about societal norms and expectations. I am building my world around me as I wish to see it, to be in it 🧬🧿
Sharing this with you as a kind of a hack to lockdown blues, if you wanna try it..going nowhere but adorning yourself..adoring yourself..with your daily shringar 🌺
As I type this, the last week I have had no time to do this because 2 of my kittens are unwell and every day has been a day at the vet, mask wearing, social distancing, sanitizing, you know the drill. And I actually miss it!
Well, here I am as pink frangipani 🌸 #lockdownblossoming
