Crystals in your Home and Environment

Crystals in your home and environment – A common question that I am asked is how to use crystals in one’s home – or where in one’s home to place them. Now, there is no right or wrong when it comes to where you place crystals in your home, but it can get a little confusing as there are so many differing opinions out there. I don’t follow any rules when it comes to crystals in my home (except when it comes to the crystals used in a child’s bedroom – which I will go over below), and generally encourage allowing your intuition to guide you, but here are some suggestions, guidelines, and a few specific ways of using crystals in your environment to enhance different energies.

Crystals work whenever you’re around them, and you don’t need to do anything special to benefit from the energy that crystals contribute to your home, and the atmosphere of your home! Not only do crystals benefit you and your family, their presence in your environment has positive effects on your plants and pets too!

Distant Healing with Reiki and Crystals

Reiki and Crystals: Crystals are a wonderful tool to use during Reiki sessions to both assist with the healing and amplify the energies being delivered to the person receiving the healing sessions. In addition to adding the crystals’ high-vibe energies to the session, crystals can also be used like a surrogate for distant healing sessions and programmed to assist you with this type of Reiki healing too.

This method of Reiki distant healing is particularly useful for children and animals (who struggle to sit still 😉 ). By infusing a crystal, like you would with the surrogate method, and placing it near the child or pet will allow healing to take place.

While traditional Reiki doesn’t involve the teaching or use of crystals, over the years many practitioners have discovered that crystals work beautifully with Reiki, and as a result has become a common subject taught by Reiki teachers.  Read more “Distant Healing with Reiki and Crystals”

Essential Oils

Trusting your Intuition

In preparing for the arrival of my little boy, I’ve been thinking about which essential oils I want to be part of our birthing experience – and for some time now I’ve been strongly drawn to 🌹Rose and 🍊Neroli. If you’ve been following me for some time, you’ll know that I work very intuitively when it comes to essential oils, but not having worked intimately with Neroli, I began doubting the intuitive pull I was having towards it and wondering why it was wanting to work with me (and my baby) at this pinnacle point in our journey. 🤔

On Tuesday evening, my hubby came home from his supporters antenatal class and woke me up to smell an oil blend that our midwife had given him for us to use from 38 weeks through labour. He was almost excited about it, and when he told me that it was a blend of 🌹Rose and 🍊Neroli, I couldn’t believe it. 🙌 Absolute beautiful validation of what I’d been feeling these last few weeks!!

The Happy Mother

I saw this quote earlier this morning on Facebook and it made me realize just how much my motherhood journey has pushed me to grow – but also how long it took me as a mother before I realised just how important a role my own happiness and wellbeing was to both my being a parent, as well as to the happiness and well being of my daughter. Being a happy mother over a perfect one was something that only came to me much, much later in the game…

There’s something about the way our kids know, without us having to say a word, when something’s going on with us – whether we’ve had a day from from hell, are holding back tears, or are so stretched and stressed that the smallest thing sets us off… regardless of how well we think we’re hiding it.

They don’t need our words to know. They can feel our energy.

And it influences the way they act and feel too. Don’t believe me?

Tools to Empower Kids

Tools to Empower Kids

What kind of tools or resources do your kids have at their disposal when they’re sad, hurt, confused, grumpy, scared, apprehensive, or not feeling well? Do they know how to use these tools?

Do you teach them how to communicate their feelings and emotions, and allow them to understand what they’re feeling or thinking? Do you offer them tools to help them when they can’t find their words?

Have you ever considered how your kids perceive emotions, physical health, mental health, mood management, boundaries, personal space, actions and consequences, or their own wellbeing – and how these influence the different areas of their life – by how you approach, and manage, these areas of your own life?

It’s easy to forget they weren’t born with all the tools and knowledge that they need to navigate their world, and themselves. This comes with growth and experience – and who better to learn from than their parents?

Animal Medicine

Reiki Healing for Animals

Have you ever considered a Reiki session for your pet, or considered offering your services as a certified Reiki practitioner to our four legged friends? Reiki Healing for Animals is a gentle, safe, and beneficial option for animal treatment.

Unlike people, animals are not able to communicate verbally with us and rely on their behaviour and affections as a way to communicate with us. Aside from physical illness and discomfort, animals also experience emotional issues like fear and anxiety, trauma, grief, separation anxiety, trouble adjusting to new environments, and can find deep healing and relief through receiving Reiki.

Dogs, for example, can be quite highly strung and having family members leave them alone can become a traumatic experience for them, especially if they are already prone to being anxious. If a dog seems to bark too much, resists getting trained, or tends to chew up everything in the house when alone, regular Reiki sessions are a great option for them to calm and release some of that pent up energy and frustration.  Read more “Reiki Healing for Animals”

Interview your Deck Spread

Interview your Deck Spread: Have you ever brought a new Tarot or Oracle Card Deck and, after using it a couple times, felt like you just couldn’t connect with it? Maybe you didn’t like the imagery, or perhaps you didn’t resonate with the messaging? I have.

But since using this spread to get to know the energy of a Deck before I use it has enabled me to understand its synergy and how best I can incorporate it into my spiritual practice – it also helps me best pair it with my other decks, because who doesn’t love using different decks together! Right?!

Using this spread to essentially interview a new card Deck, whether Tarot or Oracle, will help you gain insight into how you and the Deck will vibe, and will expand your understanding of Holistic Tarot!!

Love languages for kid - giftsEnding off our ‘Love Languages for Kids’ series today with Receiving Gifts.

Have you enjoyed this series? Do you feel that it has helped you understand your LO’s style of communicating love? I’d love to hear from you!

RECEIVING GIFTS

If Gifting, either giving or receiving gifts, is your child’s primary (or even secondary love language) they feel loved, and in return show love, by gifts. For these children, it is more the thought and intention behind the gift than the actual gift itself.

🎁 Things to encourage:

  • Make special occasions ‘special’
  • Not all gifts have to be big gestures – keep it spontaneous
  • Make the effort to think of meaningful gifts
