I may not of just graduated but i’m in a similar situation, I got pregnant at 24, ended up quitting my job due to my health and raising my son, i was immensely dehydrated from work and stress. Then my fiance came to live with me and now he’s working 5 days a week to support our little family. I still live with my parents because we’re trying to get our feet on the ground. I constantly have to deal with my parents who are basically the total opposite of Adam and I which makes it really hard. It’s like there is energy friction in this house because our consciousness feels like new reality and they are still stuck in old reality. Soo i totally get where you are coming from but the important thing to remember and learn is that the physical world is always going to be there with all of it’s egoism, materials and people who will just flat out not listen or understand. But that’s okay because if YOU, your inner reality is happy your physical world will be happy. You’re very right it is always about centering and directing your will in a positive direction. This is solar plexus territory, you need to find your personal power, your inner goddess/god self again by being gentler to yourself.
Some crystals that help with protection,grounding the ego, transmuting negative energy into positive, self love, still the mind and mental clarity:
Spirit quartz, black tourmaline, amethyst, rose quartz, desert rose, and citrine
I remember someone once told me “You can look out that window into the world and see hell, see the pain, the violence, the cruelity, the crimes, the anger, etc. but where will it get you? Everything has it’s purpose even the bad days help us appreciate the good ones. I was reading in the paper someone actually robbed a charity event, everyone was so devastated that the church received TRIPLE the amount of what they originally had because the story was so touching. You can look out the window and see hell IF you want but you can also see heaven. You can see the beauty in the simple things, see how miraculous mother earth actually is, see how each living creature on this world is connected in some way. You can fall in love and have faith in yourself but it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. The Journey of your thoughts. The power is always within them and how you wish to see the world. What will be your choice?"
I hope it helps, i wish you much love, healing and happiess for the new year
