  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} A Selenite wand (pictured) is the ideal energy tool for all types of energy cleansing. Everyone needs one in their home. It is one of the the very few minerals that has the ability to quickly unblock stagnant energy and remove negative energy. Place one on each of your windowsills to protect your space and raise its vibration. Selenite crystals also greatly magnify the energy of anything that is placed upon them. Place your tumbled stones on top of them to clear their energy. 💎
Selenite is one of our must-have crystals—it’s one that we both wear each and everyday. It is a mineral that holds a very, very high vibration, working on many different energetic levels to cleanse, purify and clear your body of any negativity or energy blockages. Selenite crystals dispel all negative energy from the body and mind, bringing calming energies, deep peace and mental clarity.
💎
Unknown to many, Selenite also promotes fertility as well as unlocks any creative blocks. It is excellent for healers, light workers and people in the public to wear, as they act as an energetic shield surrounding your aura. Some even believe that its' natural ability to cleanse, purify and create energy flow throughout the entire energy system will help to restructure and regenerate cells. It is often used in holistic medicine treatments for physical healing, including cancer treatment and tumor reduction. 💎
Wearing a selenite necklace also shields and protects you from lower energy frequencies, especially energy vampires, spirits or ghosts. Selenite is a form of liquid light that infuses your aura and spirit with white light when worn or held.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Peacock Ore’s (also called Chalcopyrite) rainbow color surrounds you with light to inspire positivity. It is a stone of creativity, innovation and blessings that helps to increase creative energies and stimulate new ideas. Hold it in your hands and say: Negative energy will not enter my space. I am surrounded by light and peace. This will amplify its properties for peace and protection.

Chalcopyrite is a wonderful meditation stone because it breaks up energy blockages to open up the crown chakra. It is also believed to be one of the strongest healing stones in the mineral kingdom, as it has the ability to align every chakra when placed upon it. Using it in body layouts causes a transformative experience that removes negative energy and replaces it with strong, positive energy. Meditating with them on a regular basis increases your intuition and helps you to become more in tune with the universe. It is also said to help us overcome the idea of “perfection,” encouraging us to embrace who we are and accept ourselves. 💎

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Black Tourmaline is one the ultimate protection crystals. If you are looking to clear, cleanse and unlock any energy blockages in your home, place a piece of Black Tourmaline in each of the 4 corners of the room or at the 4 corners of your property. This creates a protective shield of energy to ensure that no negative and harmful energy permeates your space. The human body is constantly bombarded with positive and negative energies. When you come in contact with people everyday, you often pick up some of their energy. To maintain a balanced mind, body and spirit, you want to make sure that your energy is 100% your own, so knowing how to remove negative energy from your energy field is key. 💎

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} One of the oldest stones on the planet, Shungite is a must-have for any crystal collection. All gemstones have healing qualities, but in the case of this super stone, the unique purifying and cleansing properties of shungite make it unlike any of the other protection crystals. Found only in Russia, shungite has been a source of healing since long before the discovery of fullerenes within the stone. The natural fullerenes within this carbon dense stone have the ability to reduce the concentration of free radicals. That's why we always recommend setting shungite protection properties on your desk, to shield against the free radicals cast off by your tech devices. It's also great to place shungite in a glass of water to create a healing elixir. The high-carbon content within shungite acts as a filter. Modern water filtration systems use active charcoal carbon for the same reason. In Karelia, Russia, where shungite is found, they've been using shungite in their water for centuries! 💎

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Energy is your most precious human resource. Your energy makes you, you. Your physical energy, emotional energy, mental energy and spiritual energy all contribute to how you feel and show up to your life on a day to day basis. 
Your mind, body and spirit are constantly bombarded with positive and negative energies. Even when you do your best to maintain a positive mindset, you are still susceptible to the energies of others and your surroundings. When your co-worker or loved one is stressed, you may pick up that energy and take it on as your own. If you walk into a room where an argument just occurred, your energy field picks up the energetic residue left in the space. This is why it’s of utmost importance to prioritize protecting your energy.

When you feel safe, secure and energized on all levels, you just feel good. You are grounded, calm and able to make better decisions. Your performance at work sky rockets. Your relationships become easier. And your home feels like a safe, harmonious haven.

So what can you do to protect your energy? That’s where crystal energy comes into play. Throughout this week on the @ecobeautyeditor feed, you’ll learn what crystals are best for protection of your space and your energy.

A Simple Morning Ritual to Supercharge Your Day

April 21, 2018

Somewhere along the line, life got busy. People to see, places to be, things to do, bills to pay, thoughts to think.

At some point, most of us stopped making one-on-one time with ourselves to recharge, rejuvenate and reflect, yet, taking a few moments just for you could be the most important part of your every day: for your health, your happiness and your inner-harmony.

Learn how to use essential oils SAFELY and for most benefit
Essential oils are potent and offer most benefit when used correctly. Did you know? Each oil possesses particular chemical make-up and the application is often specific to the particular oil. Therefore, it's important to understand how to best use an oil to suit your particular situation. Learn how to use pure essential oils safely, and for most benefit by subscribing to my essential oils education newsletter at left.
Your privacy is respected, always.

While booking in for an hour-long massage each week is a sure-fire way put a spring back in your busy step, you don’t necessarily need to spend much to start feeling good. There are so many at-home treats we can give ourselves to foster a little inner zen.

Early morning is a magical time to create a self-care, self-love ritual. It’s a new day, a new beginning. Even if it means getting up an hour earlier, making the initial effort to change your routine can not only make you feel better, it can also bring your energy levels up, which can lead to happier thoughts, better-feeling emotions.

Early morning is a magical time to create a self-care, self-love ritual. It’s a new day, a new beginning.

If you believe in the law of attraction, feeling so much better can literally bring magical experiences into our life. Suddenly, we’ve got more energy to cope with the busy-ness and a positive outlook where we actually expect good things to happen to us.

As a stay-at-home mama to a happy, curious and determined 11 month old, I’d be telling a little white lie if I said I managed to fit in my complete morning ritual every single day. These days, it’s weekends where I get more time to pamper up, stop, breathe more deeply and really take stock of how I’m feeling.

The point is, it’s not about giving yourself more things to do, and feeling bad if you don’t do it. It’s about feeling good about making time to look after you, whether it’s one minute or one hour.

Here are my top 10 (easy-to-incorporate) morning rituals…

STRETCH

Sure, hanging out the washing may result in a little leg stretch, but it can’t compete with taking five minutes out to really limber up every part of your body. I love to lie flat on the floor with my arms above my head and my legs outstretched first thing in the morning, breathing deeply as I clear my thoughts. Point your toes, wriggle them about, flex your fingers and breathe deeply into your stomach. A yoga Child’s Pose is also a great way to stretch, breathe and feel grounded.

morning ritual

LEMON JUICE IN WARM WATER

Hydrating first thing in the morning is one of the most important things you can do. It gets your digestion going, the lemon does a clean sweep of your insides and warm spring water hydrates the cells. This small habit can do wonders for not only making you feel better, but can also make you think better. Most of us go through every day in a dehydrated state, which can lead to discomforts and dis-eases.

morning ritual

ORGANIC COLD PRESSED VEGE JUICE

Yep, this one can take a little more time, but the health (and beauty) rewards make it worth every minute of chopping veges, feeding them into your juicer and cleaning out said juicer. I say juice “press” because these type of juicers, although more expensive, keep the health-loving enzymes in tact more than a traditional juicer that uses a spinning blade to extract the juice, thereby heating up the juice and killing some of the enzymes. My juicer of choice is Kuvings.

morning ritual

DRY BRUSH

As the body’s largest organ, your skin does an almighty job of getting rid of toxins, but it can always do with a helping hand. Dry brushing every morning before you jump in the shower get the blood flowing, helps you detoxify and makes your skin feel good. It can also add a healthy glow. Start at your feet, working your way up the body in circular motions. Always be sure to brush towards your heart.

morning ritual

BODY SCRUB

Forget fancy and expensive body scrubs. Instead, mix a good handful of Celtic sea salt or Himalayan salt (make sure the grains aren’t too large) with organic olive oil and work over your skin just before, or while you’re in the shower. Again, it helps to slough away dead skin cells and works with your skin to detoxify, while also hydrating thanks to the olive oil. You can do a combo of organic coffee grains and coconut sugar.

morning ritual

TAPPING

Out with the old, in with the new. Tapping is as much part of my life as brushing my teeth. It’s one of my regular rituals that literally makes my life better, helping me to clear out emotions that really don’t serve me. Whether it’s feeling sad for no particular reason, or you’re wanting to improve your financial situation, tapping may be able to help. If you’re new to tapping or EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), check out www.thetappingsolution.com and start exploring how this incredible, and oh-so simple technique, can help you.

morning ritual

COCONUT OIL INFUSION

With all that washing and scrubbing, it’s important to put some moisture back into that hard working organ, the skin. Extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil is not only super hydrating, it’s also anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory, which means double duty if you’ve got skin issues from rashes to fungal infections. Mix it up with a little organic lavender oil to bring about a sense of relaxation to start your day off right. Use it from top to toe.

morning ritual

MIRROR LOVE

This one may sit at number eight, but it’s actually the most important step in your daily ritual. Whether you choose to do it in the morning, while parked at the traffic lights or at night in the bathroom mirror, it’s an incredibly powerful yet simple action that can change your life for the better. Once we accept ourselves and send love to every part of us, magic actually begins to happen. We stop beating ourselves up for the imperfections we may have otherwise seen. Start on the body part that you feel most negatively about. Send it love directly from your heart. Then look into your own eyes and tell yourself you love you and how grateful you are for you. It may feel uncomfortable to completely awkward at first, but the benefits of doing this little exercise is immeasurable. Just look to the incredible work from the late Louise Hay.

morning ritual

 

HERBAL TEA

I love herbal tea so much. While I heart a good cup of green or white, I adore herbals for their healing properties, because there’s no caffeine and it’s a great way to hydrate if you’re not keen on slugging back eight glasses of water per day. Right now, licorice root is at the top of my tea list. It’s wonderful for digestion and has antioxidant properties.

morning ritual

GREEN SMOOTHIE

Kale, cucumber, spinach, apples, pear, dates… there are some incredible, health-boosting ingredients you can add to a morning smoothie that can bring your energy levels up, foster clear, glowing skin and make you feel like you could take on the world. What I love so much about smoothies, besides their power-packing nutrients, is how much goodness you can fit into a glass. Put the same fruit and veges on a plate and it’d take a lot of crunching and munching to get through them all. Also, blending breaks down the plant cell walls, meaning you don’t have to chew for as long and hard to make the most of all the nutrients. Even so, it’s a great idea of chew your smoothie to get the saliva and digestive juices going.
