Dwell in Magic was created in 2016 to serve as an online resource for spiritual awakening, self-care that transforms and heals, and coming into alignment with who you really are.
My definition of transformational self-care is living your life in a way that supports you emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. It's a lifestyle and belief system that you develop and live from. But it isn't stagnant...like the seasons change, so do you and your needs, your growth, and your callings.
The one principle that stays the same in my self-care lifestyle is remaining in touch with myself so that I can rearrange my life and priorities to fit wherever I currently am. I go through self-care routines like tissues...they all serve their purpose for that moment in time. We're always in motion, moving towards ever greater expansion and understanding of who we are and why we're here.
There is a shift taking place in the world that is calling us to go within while remaining grounded and present in our lives. We're beginning to realize that stability and happiness can never be found on the outside–it's all created within first, and then reflected back to us. When we can do this while firmly grounded and rooted here in our physical bodies, we thrive.
• My name is Jessica and I am the creator of Dwell in Magic. I began writing about transformational self-care in 2016. My educational degree is in psychology–I've always been fascinated by us humans and have always had an immense desire to help where there is pain or confusion, especially when it comes to the feminine. Before I started Dwell in Magic, I worked in various positions assisting women, from domestic violence shelters to Planned Parenthood.
• I love learning and researching varied topics in the field of spirituality. My mind loves to take in abstract philosophies and attempt to turn them into tangible, practical tools that we can use in our everyday lives.
• I'm a huge homebody and find a lot of joy living a quiet life (as much as a mom of two young boys can), doing mundane, everyday things like cooking, reading, meditating, and just sitting on my porch. Of course, my partner is the complete opposite so he keeps me from being a full-time hermit.
• I am not much on social media, so if you'd like to stay in touch, the best way to do that is through the Self-Care Sunday emails, which go out once a week on Sundays.
