~ Cleanse my Mind, Body, and soul. Part 1~

I’m sure you’re familiar with the benefits that a good detox has on your body; cleansing the body of toxins, regulating our moods and boosting our energy. But why do we stop with just the body? We may not always realise it, but our mind and soul collect just as many toxins as our physical body.

Think about hIMG_3186ow many things run through your mind every day, making sure that you have enough time to get everything done, something didn’t work our quite the way you wanted it to at work, a friend let you down, you’re late to fetch the kids from school and then you get stuck in traffic. Regardless of what your daily life looks like, we often have so much going on in our minds that we rarely every just switch off. So these thoughts accumulate, they go around and around and we go to bed tired, we wake up tired, and so the busy mind starts again.

And then we look at our environment, we are surrounded by energy, and because we are energetic beings it is so easy for us to ‘pick-up’ the yucky, energetic gunk around us. A conversation with a friend who is going through a hard time, it leaves her feeling lighter and consoled but leaves you feeling drained. This is because you have taken on that energetic gunk that she offloaded. It can be even simpler than that, you may be in a meeting room or lecture hall full of people, those people all have their own energetic gunk going on, and you may pick up on some of it (energetically speaking). We pick and drop off energy all day, every day, regardless of where we are and who we’re with.

Think of this energetic gunk as cobwebs, the longer we leave them there, the more dust and bugs they begin to collect ~ our body is the same, this energetic gunk starts collecting, restricting the natural flow of energy, and we can start to feel pretty damn awful!

When I made the decision to follow my dreams and pursue a career in holistic healing, I made a promise to myself to spend a little time each day alone, just me time. Not so easy. I really didn’t find it very easy setting time aside, to be honest, it felt more like a chore than anything else. But I pushed on, and the more I did it, the better I felt. It almost became a habit, and as the days went on, the more time I wanted to spend engaging in a holistic practice of some sort, whether in meditation, spending time with my crystals, doing breathing exercises, yoga, connecting with my spirit family and higher self through tarot and oracle decks, reading or simply soaking in the tub. I started seeing the value in it, and couldn’t understand why I made such a big deal out of it.

When I was getting my Reiki Masters, it was like the light bulb turned on, self-care was probably the most important aspect of any holistic healer and/ or coach. If I am all gunked-up with negative energy, and not taking the steps to ensure that I am cleaning my whole body (mental, emotional and physical), then I cannot be a clear channel through which beautiful, healing energy passes through. I wouldn’t make a very good reiki practitioner!

But this goes even further, as a holistic healer and coach, it is my goal to lift people up, to carry and guide them through their path to self-growth and healing. In order for me to be that emotional, mental and spiritual support that my clients need, I need to ensure that I am in check with myself. So, I do one thing (sometimes more) daily to ensure that I am functioning to my very best ability – mentally, physically and emotionally.

My favourite exercise is something that I have started doing at least twice a week ~ the MBS (Mind, Body, and Soul) Detox and Cleanse. It does wonders for me and gets rid of all the energetic gunk that may be mine, picked up from others, or simply absorbed for my environment. It’s like a new, clean and balanced me every week!

Regular MBS Detox and Cleanse (I like to think of as a whole detox) goes a long way to restoring our body’s natural flow of energy, resulting in us feeling more balanced, happy and energised. Those negative emotions and behaviours, like mood swings, stress, anxiety, insomnia, will start to dissipate. You will sleep better, eat better and feel 100 times better!

So what is this MBS Detox and Cleanse that I’m talking about and how do you do it?? You’ll have to come back tomorrow and read Part 2. 😉

~ The Spring of my Journey ~

IMG_3187_IG

Today, instead of posting a daily reading, I wanted to share something that happened to me yesterday.

It was a bit of a challenging day for me, personally. I had set myself the task of actually writing what had to go into the ‘my story’ section of my website, something I had been putting off and totally not excited about. You see, talking about myself whether written or spoken is not something that has ever come easily to me, in fact, I put it off most times or change the subject. It has definitely been one of the most difficult challenges that I have had to overcome. So, I sat down to my morning ritual, and my animal medicine cards called to me. A Bat medicine card jumped out of the deck before I had even begun to start shuffling properly. Bat Medicine it was, to guide me through the day.

Bat Medicine – Reminding me that in order for my rebirth, the old me needs to pass, I need to let go of all that is holding back that person, face my fears so that my authentic self can blossom and shine. Bat, together with the Rabbit (from our public reading), pretty powerful energies to guide me through this challenge 💪🌞 It took me most of the day, but I got it done… 😅

Sitting in bed last night I suddenly felt my vibration shift radically, it made me feel quite nauseous and I was suddenly completely exhausted. I didn’t think anything of it at the time, I usually feel this vibration after I have done an MBS Detox and Cleanse, maybe not quite as long, or intense, though.

And then my dream… 💭

I dreamt that I was in the ocean, in the company of my loved ones and friends, when the deceased body of a young, blonde girl surfaced. She didn’t look like me, but I knew it was. I was completely shocked and crying heavily as I carried her body onto the shore and gave her body to someone whose face I couldn’t see very well, but all the while I had this incredible sense of calm. 😳 Crazy right? Yes, and no…

This was a message, an affirmation that the passing of the old me has happened. My writing about my story, and how I got to this place, has released the old energies and have allowed for my rebirth to take place!

Often there are times that we see, feel, and hear guidance and mesages that, if taken too literally, can scare the heck out of us (like a bat, or death)! The beauty of tarot, dreams, meditation, visions, or any medium through which we communicate and receive guidance from our higher-self and spirit family, is that it is only ever for our highest and greatest good. 

Thank you for sharing my journey with me, I am always learning, healing and growing. Those who are too scared to face what they fear the most, may you find comfort and see how beautiful and courageous you are.

~ Get those creative juices flowing! ~

There has been so much going on, and I am absolutely loooooving the high vibes at the moment! ✨🙌 I recently started introducing essential oils into my daily practice, which I only use aromatically for now, and I just have to share this incredible combo that has got my MOJO flowing this week! The EOs coupled with my gem water has been amaaaazing!! 🔮💫

It has kept my vibe up and given me the CREATIVE BOOST that’s got me through (what can be a tedious process) website building and kept both my focus and energy game strong!! 💕 The late nights and long days staring at a pic screen are paying off, I can’t remember the last time I felt this excited and passionate (let alone creative) about a project! To see my goals manifest is something so special!!

~Rabbit medicine reminds us not to run~

IMG_3158

“Scared little Rabbit… Please drop your fright! Running doesn’t stop the pain, or turn the dark to light”. 🐰 Today’s card reminds us not to run from our FEARS, don’t be afraid to confront them and don’t ignore the intuitive thoughts you are having. 🌬

Today is a great day to start removing “what if” from your thoughts and vocabulary. The more we talk about horrible things and worry about the future, try and control what has not yet happened, and live in the fear of what might happen ~ we invite that fear to manifest and become our reality!

So STOP now‼️

Instead, choose to focus on the good that you have in your life and the things that you DO want to happen. We attract what we think ~ do you really want your thoughts to manifest? If your answer is no, then write your fears down, feel them, acknowledge them, allow them to enter your space… Breathe into them. And then… Release them. Feel them running through and out of your body into Mother Earth and Divine Light for transformation. This ties in so beautifully with our ‪crystal energy from yesterday, reminding us to have clarity of mind when setting those intentions!!

~ Gratitude Matters ~

IMG_3126

… Name 5 things you were grateful for today and end your day with a #grateful heart. If we go to bed with gratitude in our hearts, we will wake with a grateful heart too. 💙 Gratitude matters!! This simple practice is so “simple” and taken for granted, but can have immeasurable effects of your heart and your life. ⭐️ A grateful heart is a contented heart. A contented heart is a simple heart. And a simple heart leads to a simplified life. 🌿 💕

Gratitude opens the door to simplicity. By choosing #gratitude for something or someone, you will care for them, enjoy them, and waste less energy feeling unfulfilled and seeking more. 🙏🏼✨ We live in a time that preaches discontentment, wanting and needing more that pleases and satisfies temporarily, only to seek further fulfillment. If you choose gratitude in your current existence, you will find that you become less influenced by these empty promises, and find fulfillment and pleasure in the things and people that matter the most – you, your life and your loved ones. 💙 Design the life you deserve, live authentically. 💕🙏🏼💫
