Wildflowers

Slowly and softly close your eyes and bring your awareness inside. As you inhale your breath into your body, bring you awareness to the in-breath. With each breath bring your attention to the way in which your breath enters your body.

Breath is life, the way you breathe life into your body.

Now bring your awareness to your out-breath, the way in which you return that breath to the atmosphere.

Your breath slowly comes in and your breath slowly goes out. While you continue to breathe, imagine the sea, the tide slowly coming in and out, and just sit with that image for a while as you continue to breathe.

On the next in-breath take a deep long breath into your heart. Both your physical heart and your heart centre. Allow the breath to come up through your torso. Slowly take that breath deep into your heart and with each and every breath breathe deeply into your hearts centre.

With each in-breath allow your heart to expand. On the out-breath invite your heart to open.

As you inhale, your heart is expanding and growing and as you exhale your heart is opening.

Now take an even deeper, longer breath into your heart and feel that moment, and just sit with that moment for a while.

Continue to breathe and take a deep, deep breath into the centre of your heart and as you breathe out I want you to fall, fall right into the centre of your heart. As you arrive at your hearts centre I want you to visualise the earth and imagine that you are surrounded by beautiful trees. As you walk amongst the trees and look down the fields you see brighly coloured wildflowers. The red, yellow and violet colours are so vibrant, you are mesmerised. You walk out into the open space and you can smell the beautiful strong scent of the flowers in the air. Enjoy the beauty of this moment of peace✨

I hope this meditation helps you relax – Namaste ✨

Time On My Hands

Image via Pinterest

Rather than worry about what’s to come, I’ve decided to make the most of my spare time by doing the things that help keep me grounded and centred. The first on my list is meditation and I’ve promised myself I’ll do at least 1 hour practise every day.

If ever I feel stuck and need answers, meditation is always my go-to and over the years I’ve realised that the more I practise, the more clear my life path becomes.

Rewind 6 months ago when I was working flat out on a cruise ship. One thing I craved the most was time to myself, I was literally a workhorse giving my energy to guests all day long. It was the most physically demanding thing I’ve ever experienced and time was so precious, it was like gold dust. I remember waking up one morning and thinking right, I’ve had enough, I need to go home, and just like that I booked a flight and was out of there. Thank God. I can not begin to imagine what it’s been like, to be stuck on a cruise ship whilst all this is going on. I can’t help but think someone was watching over me 😇.

So here we are in a situation that’s out of our control and right now, against all odds, I have all the time in the world. I feel truly grateful to be around my family, the only thing that makes me feel safe when things go wrong. So what do I do with all this spare time?

I’ve decided to make a room here at my dads into a beautiful calm space. I have my Tibetan bowls which I love, they remind me of my trip to India, a deeply spiritual time where I met some beautiful souls such as Pegah, check out her page @yes2healthyminds.

Did you know that Tibetan bowls are amazing for relaxation and healing? The vibration gets me every time. I’ve also managed to find my little bag of Palo Santo (thank you god), I love the aroma. It’s one of my favourite essential oils and it’s great for aromatherapy and healing. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned my love for Palo Santo. It has so many amazing benefits and it’s a natural alternative medicine for relieving flu symptoms, common colds, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, emotional pain and many other conditions. If ever there was a time to invest in Palo Santo it’s now!

It’s also great for clearing energy, be it your bedroom, office, car or even your whole house. If you’re anything like me and can literally walk into a place and feel the mood, Palo Santo may be your go-to. I use it before I start any meditation to clear the energy and boost my mood. I’m fascinated by energy!

Now I have time on my hands, I’m going to dedicate more time to blogging, another love of mine. I hope you find a way to find peace in this surreal time. I’m counting my blessings and feeling grateful for the little things in life, no matter how trying things are ✨.

How to find your spirit animal?

Image via Pinterest

What is your spirit animal? We all have one.

A spirit animal is a creature who faces the world the same as you do.

Pay attention to your dreams. Our dreams are connected to our waking lives. So every time you see an animal in your dreams make a note.

Which animal are you most connected to? Whether it’s an image or a real-life animal, there will be one in particular that you are drawn to.

The characteristics of your spirit animal mirror the characteristics of you and if you’re unsure what they are you can easily find out by reading books on symbolism or even searching the net.

I love symbolism. Animals, numbers, and colours give so much guidance and have really helped me with healing and self-awareness.

I have really vivid dreams and there’s definitely more than one that features but for me, the tiger shows up the most.

If you’re unsure what your spirit animal is, there are lots of quizzes you can do, here’s one online – https://www.spiritanimal.info/spirit-animal-quiz/

There is always something to learn from your spirit animal.

The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Cups of Coffee

On Friday I went to see a lady called Jane. The lady with the sparkly eyes ✨

After spending one hour with this lady who was truly gifted and also very funny, she handed me this beautiful Jade Crystal and a Chinese Feng Shui coin, which is known to boost positive chi and prosperity.

I left Jane beaming, excited for my future and set my intention for this beautiful gemstone.

Jade is known as the “lucky charm crystal”. It brings abundance and prosperity into your life and it’s also the stone of eternal youth, so I’m hoping it works wonders for me, like a magic wand 😂! She handed me some bits of paper, which I have finally sat down to read just now and one was titled “THE MAYONNAISE JAR AND 2 CUPS OF COFFEE.

It starts something like this………

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24hrs in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar…..and the coffee…..

I’d love to write and post it here, but it’s too long, so just type in google “THE MAYONNAISE JAR AND 2 CUPS OF COFFEE”.

It’s there for you to read 💛

Can Crystals Influence Your Life?

IMG_0523

Since my new-found love and slight obsession with “crystals,” I decided to enrol on a Crystal Therapy Course. Since then, all I’ve wanted to do is shout from the rooftops “I love them”. Forget crazy cat lady, let me introduce crazy crystal lady. Ok maybe not too crazy but I just love CRYSTALS.

So, before we begin, crystals like most things are not for everyone. I think to truly experience their joy and understand how they can enhance your body, mind, emotions and spirit, you have to be open. I’m of the mindset that if you don’t believe in something, a relationship, a job or whatever it is, the results are rarely positive and it’s a constant struggle.

All that to one side, if you are drawn to beautiful colours and sparkling gemstones, it might be a good idea to check out your local crystal store. The feeling I get when I walk into Crystal Henge and see all that sparkles, I feel so light and happy. I can spend hours mooching around the shop learning about all the different crystals and their healing benefits and if you’re lucky enough to catch Terry in there, be prepared to be blown away, he is so knowledgeable. I could talk to him for hours. That moment when a certain crystal catches your eye, then once clasped into your hand, you feel the beauty and vibration of its energy. So dreamy!

As humans, we have unstable energy fields around our bodies. These energetic layers (subtle bodies) create an interconnected field of energy known as the auric field. Have you ever heard someone say you have a lovely aura? They are talking about your energy! Each subtle body connects into the physical body via an energy point/chakra, which directs the energy into the physical body via the meridian system. I’ll go into more detail about why it’s important to balance your chakras in one of my future blogs. I had my first experience of a guided meditation to align my chakras and the results were mind-blowing, hence chakra balancing deserves a blog dedicated to its magnificence alone. Anyway, back to my point, THE ENERGY OF CRYSTALS CONNECT WITH THE ENERGY OF OUR BODIES TO CREATE A HARMONIOUS AND BLISSFULL BALANCE.

Did you know that Crystals date back to the Ancient Sumerians, they were known for including crystals in magic formulas? The Ancient Egyptians were also noted in history for using crystals such as turquoise, carnelian and clear quartz in their jewellery, they also used them for protection and health. Today we also use Crystals for healing and protection and they’re known to attract love, wellbeing and spiritual harmony in our lives.

Anyone who regularly uses crystals raves about the benefits and their individual experiences and believe that crystals have made a huge impact on their day to day lives. So, if you’re new to the world of crystal healing but are intrigued to find out more, I’ve listed the benefits of crystal therapy and what magic they offer below:

  • Mental clarity and focus
  • An increase in energy
  • Guidance and insight
  • Calmness
  • Peace
  • Less anxiety and depression
  • Happiness
  • Reduced pain and muscle tension
  • Motivation
  • An improvement in overall health and wellbeing

In my blogs to follow I plan to talk in more detail about the different types of crystals, what their colours mean, how to choose the right crystals, how to look after them and most importantly how to use crystals.

Today I’ll leave you with the Rainbow Fluorite which I’m wearing as a beautiful necklace. Fluorite crystals are known to be soothing, they ward off any negative energy and work hard to keep your aura shining bright! They’re also great for those with a scattered mind, they help you become more organised. If you’re one of those people who instantly feels drained by spending time with certain people, this could be the crystal for you. However, energy speaks volumes so maybe it’s time to cleanse your company and trust your gut. Your gut knows what’s going on before you’ve even had the chance to process anything!

Oh, and one last thing, have you heard the lyrics of Emily Sande’s song Selah?

“My soul gets deeper, songs real spiritual,
Cross around my neck and a crystal in my pocket
My love is the bomb and forgiveness is the rocket”.

So beautiful……………………………….
