The Electric Oracle – Happy 1st Birthday! Q & A to follow, comment questions…

 

I can’t quite believe I’m writing this, but today, the 4th of July, marks one whole year since the beginning of The Electric Oracle!

This space was born out of a need for expression and release; I never thought I would find such a sense of community through my interactions with readers and other writers. I feel incredibly lucky to have this (unexpected) platform. You can read my first ever post here.

Thank you all so, so much for sticking with me this year, all 1226 of you. It is an absolute joy to interact with each and every one of you. I have sought much guidance and wisdom from various comments and exchanges – you have no idea how grateful I am for it all.

In light of this celebration, I have decided to do a Q & A session! Somehow I’ve never done one before…

If you’d like to, leave a question in the comments below and I will answer it in my next post. You can ask whatever you like (provided it’s not NSFW!), whether it be about writing, life, or something more personal. I’ll be accepting questions until this Sunday the 8th July.

You can also comment a question on my latest video here.

Thank you so, so, SO much for this year,

Love and luck,

Clodagh X

four hundred of you | mini update

Today we hit 400 followers on The Electric Oracle – as always, THANK YOU for following! I appreciate it more than you could ever imagine.

I know that I was meant to post something a little longer + more substantial by the end of this week, but I promise it’ll be up by Wednesday of this coming week. It’s going to be related to my experience in college / university so far, should that tickle your fancy.

We’re also relatively close to hitting 5,000 views on here which is wild, by my standards. When we hit 10,000 views I might do a kind of ‘get to know me’ post, or possibly a Q & A. Let me know in the comments if you have any thoughts or suggestions.

I wish you all the very best of health and happiness for the coming week; thank you for being here. ❤

Love and luck,

positive thinking – when positive thoughts lead to negative results | article

The concept of “positive thinking” is rampant in the modern age. One search of “#positivity” on Instagram produces over five million results – an overwhelming number of images all with one apparently simple aim: to encourage and to uplift. This, in principle isn’t a bad thing, nor is it an attempt to find the good in a bad situation. After all, as the old saying goes, “you can never have too much of a good thing”. But is this really the case?

While thinking positively is essential for our wellbeing, it must be executed in such a way that we consider the process itself rather than the end result.

I spoke to bestselling author Dr. Ian Robertson last year on this very topic – you can read the rest of the article here  . Enjoy!

Love and luck,

one hundred of you | much love <3

I didn’t even expect to have one person reading The Electric Oracle just a week after I created it, let alone one hundred of you! Just wanted to say thank you all so much, it means a lot. Having a sense of community like this is so lovely. You’re all fab. ❤
