how I meditate: redefining the art of self-reflection

I'm on this spiritual journey, y'all...I'm aligning these chakras,  nourishing my soul, taking the time to understand my body and its needs and vibrating higher everyday! And I'm finally starting to gain momentum, I'm getting the hang of this magick shit and it is quite lovely.
