After the cosmic storm of Christmas, with indulgence leaving you feeling whacked out and exhausted, find time for some down time that will re-set you for the year ahead.
When we over indulge, our bodies go into a kind of stress. Because we are throwing all manner of sugary treats, alcoholic drinks and a mince pie or two for good measure, let alone the cheese and egg nog; we need to re-visit the status-quo and remind ourselves of the balance we had before this delicious time of being festive and having a good time.
It is not just the deluge of indulgences, but also the stress that comes from running around looking after children, parents and trying to please everyone. These are some amazing, rebalancing and restorative tricks to consider to quickly get you back to YOU.
CRYSTALS & AYUREVEDA HERVS
When it comes to crystal basics, these otherworldly rocks connect us to the Earth because they are tangible, physical forms that have powerful vibrations. This energy continues to connect with you when you wear intention crystals close to the skin or place them in your environment. With every thought and intention, these crystals pick up on your unique vibrational energy and amplify the positive vibes that you’re cultivating.
In this magical world of vibrations, crystal energy helps you on your spiritual journey because it works to hold your intention and remind you of your connection to the Earth. A well thought out intention is the starting point for healing crystals because specific intentions instilled into your daily thought patterns also become part of its energy.
You have heard of Quartz watches. Quartz has been on Earth since the beginning of time and makes up 12% of the Earth’s crust and is used in almost every kind of technology, including watches and electronics. If it’s possible for crystals to communicate through computer chips, then isn’t it possible that this vibrational energy could be transformed in other ways? And with its connection to the Earth and its life-giving elements, it makes sense that crystals are universally healing, especially since they’ve made their mark in almost every civilization before us.
For those cynics or scientists, Albert Einstein said everything in life is vibration, and just like sound waves, thoughts have vibrations. Therefore, if you think crystals have healing potential, the positive vibes of the stones will amplify those thoughts.
SET THE INTENTION
One of the wisest and most powerful things you can do is owning the ‘intention’. If you are negative, and express negative thoughts, guess what, you will manifest negativity. The vibrations of positivity create a positive energy and if you express nothing but positive intention, then you are set for a good year ahead, and good things will start to shift your way.
We can make these intentions whenever we want and choosing our thoughts will make a huge difference. If you support these affirmations with crystals, it will firstly quieten your mind and remember mother earth and mother nature, and secondly help to transform your thoughts into a greater power, one of abundance and prosperity. Not greed or impatience. Therefore see these crystals as a reminder and wear or carry them with you.
Our favourite is Rose Quartz as it is strong for emotional wellbeing because it opens and realigns the heart chakra, which magnifies feelings of self-love and the unconditional love of others. We use this in our Metabolic Facials along with tuning forks and singing bowls. This whole experience opens the healing channels, shifts stagnancy whether physical or emotional and reconnects you to your true self.
CLEANSE WITH AYUREVEDA
Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.
It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. But treatments may be geared toward specific health problems.
Ayurevedic herbs such as Turmeric, Schisandra and Ashwaghanda are our top three adaptogenic herbs to re-set the system to purge toxins. All our natural skincare line have these adaptogenic herbs, which have the exact same response on our skin, for a brighter, energised, fresh complexion.
AYUREVEDA & LIFE ENERGY
We believe that everything in the universe is connected. If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe, you have good health. When something disrupts this balance, you can feel stressed and not as strong and vital.
The Ying and Yang is balance and part of our everyday lives, not just your skincare routine. Where there is imbalance, there is lack of flowing energy which helps to keep us in optimum health both mentally and physically. Using these adaptogenic herbs in your daily life really do benefit and will keep you away from the dreaded doctors practice.
