Solar Flares, Science and Shit!

Isn't it weird how you can think something is a certain way, but when you look back on that experience, you see it as totally different?

Have you ever had a crystal randomly break on you?! What does it mean?

I recently read an fantastic blog post from Vix at New Age Hipster (I love her, check out her stuff, she's very down to earth and keeps spirituality real!) Her blog talked about what it means when a crystal breaks. I have experienced crystals that disappear or re-appear as needed like magic, but I have only ever had two broken crystals in my life - One of which had been thrown on the ground by my very own two year old terrorist! No explanation needed!

(She's grown up somewhat now, and appreciates the power of the stones! ;-) )

The other happened when I was on holiday in February 2018. I say holiday, but it was more of a once in a lifetime adventure to the Arctic circle, and visit to see the mini - terrorists (I mean children's!!) God-parents who live in Tromso, Norway.

Now this isn't (really!) just an excuse to share with you some of my holiday snaps! (or is it??!!)

In Norway, our friends had arranged for us to have a night skiing in a log cabin, which was incredible! We were lucky enough to see the Northern lights both nights (a total of three out of our 5 nights in Norway we saw them!) The first night was surreal- we were in sub zero temperatures in a hot tub surrounded by snow, drinking wine on Valentines day evening. It was perfect.

The next night as we were packing up ready to go home, I got really sick! I rarely get sick, (unless I've partied too hard, which I'm almost growing out of! lol) and we hadn't had anything to drink as we were driving back to our city air bnb that night. But I came over, weak, wobbly, dizzy. My whole body felt like it was tingling and shaking. I was nauseous and then started vomiting! It was awful.

However, I was able to be distracted from my misery when the Northern Lights came out to play again and gave us the most spectacular show! Even our native Norwegian friend was surprised by the intensity of the lights that night.

It was a show like you see on the movies/magazines and our previous valentines night paled in comparison. Now here is where I spam you with photos - scroll on to see what I'm talking about with the crystal!
