Base Chakra Meditation and Affirmation

Base Chakra Meditation and AffirmationHello Beautiful Souls! We are at the end of our Base Chakra journey, and now that you have the basic knowledge and tools to heal, balance and energize your Base Chakra here is a simple meditation and affirmation that will have you feeling more grounded and safe in your world… ❤️
You can use your beautiful Base Chakra crystals and essential oils to assist this meditation! ✨

Find a comfortable space to sit or lay quietly and close your eyes.
🔅Focus your attention on your breath, and take four deep breaths in, opening and extending your chest and exhale with a long ‘aaaah’ sigh.
🔅Find your attention on you Base Chakra, notice it’s colour. How does it look today? Is it a bright, vibrant red or a darker, maroon? How does it feel today? Do you feel grounded and safe or are you feeling unstable and having difficulty focusing on things?
🔅Whatever you notice, don’t judge yourself in this moment, only observe.
🔅Now imagine your Base Chakra begin to start spinning in a clockwise direction, imagine the lotus petals of this Chakra open up and a bright red light filling your Base Chakra as it continues to spin, faster and faster clearing our all the negative energy blocking it and replacing it with only brilliant, healing energy.
🔅Repeat the following (either in your mind our out loud) “I and grounded. I am safe. I am secure”.
🔅Stay in this space for as long as you feel the need, trust your intuition here. You will know when your Chakra has had its fill.
🔅Once you feel that your Chakra has had its fill, notice your Chakra begin to slow down as the red light begins to pull away, and the lotus petals close up and over your Chakra.
🔅Bring your attention back to your breath, your body and your environment, and when you are ready you can open your eyes.
🔅Chanting “LAM” (Luuuhhmmmmm) during the above meditation is an alternative to the affirmation, or you can include it after your affirmations.

Let me know how you feel after doing it, I’d love to hear from you! ❤️ Next, we move into your creative centre, our Sacral Chakra! 🙌

Not only does placing a Crystal or gem over a specific part of a client’s body aid the healing, energizing and release of negative energy, but holding a clear Quartz point (single or double terminated) in your giving hand acts as an amplifier and transmuter of the beautiful healing energy transfer between you and your client.

Emotional Support for Pre-Teens

teen-hormones-wherehumrests

Hello Lovelies!!

Pre-Teen, pre-puberty can be a challenging time for our little ladies! Moms, I’m sure you can remember experiencing a range of emotions and physical changes in those years leading up to puberty?
My girl is in that space now where she is feeling a bunch of different things, and not entirely sure why she’s feeling them – from irritable and grumpy to highly sensitive and tearful!

We put together a little emotional support pouch for her to keep with her and assist with the changes that she’s going through. ✨She helped me choose what went into the pouch… it’s incredible how intuitive our kids are!

Here’s what went in:
~ Smokey Quartz (protection and negative energy transmutation)
~ Red Jasper (grounding)
~ Unakite (emotional and yin/yang energy balance)
~ Ruby in Zoisite. Aka Anyolite (mood management)
~ Pink Banded Agate (femininity, self-love)
~ Rose Quartz (enhances female energies and calming)
~ Strawberry Quartz (balances psyche, emotions and subtle energy bodies, assists understanding of self)
~ Moonstone (balances inner self, confidence, feminine energy and emotions, releases energy blocks)
~ Amethyst (calms oversensitivity, tension and emotional energy, enhances the aura and self-esteem).

Patchouli and Bergamot essential oils have also become part of her bath and bed time routine. She’ll sit quietly before bath time with her Smokey Quartz and Patchouli oils (for about 2 mins) when she is feeling a little frazzled, and take four deep breaths inhaling the scent of her Bergamot oil before bed. Patchouli is a fab grounding essential oil which is lighter than Frankincense or White Fir, Bergamot is a wonderfully calming oil that has similar calming and stress-relieving effects as Lavender. Both oils have much milder scents making them more nose friendly for our little light workers! 🌿💜

Gem Water – H2O infused with the energies of…

gem-water-wherehumrestsHello Lovelies!!

I’ve had a few requests to do a post on gem water – what it is, and how to make it. Gemstone, or “Gem” water, in my opinion, is another holistic tool (toolkit) that we can use to maintain our overall physical, emotional, mental and energetic health! I drink litres of gem water every day, I LOVE IT!!

Gem water is something that has been rising in popularity over the last few years, there are even companies that now sell gorgeous bottles, vials, and droppers, you can visit the site here.

Personally, I’m more of a DIY girl and prefer to make my own gem water with my crystals that I have at home, this also allows me to create a new combination every day / week depending on what my needs are.

So what exactly is Gem Water?
Simply put, it is water that has been infused with the energies of particular gemstones / healing crystals. By placing crystals in drinking water the crystal energy is able to restructure the water, charging it with negative ions (we already know that negative ions are good for us!!). The water is also charged with the vibration and energetic properties of the crystals. By drinking this water, we are allowing these energies to work on a cellular level within our physical bodies. It’s a really great way of incorporating crystal energy into your life, and can be taken anywhere you can take a bottle of water! 🙂

How to make Gem Water.
It’s pretty easy actually! Here’s what you’ll need and what to do:

~ Get a clean glass, glass jar or glass jug/pitcher/bottle (depending on how much you want to make). Personally, I love using glass milk bottles with stainless steel lids. I only recommend using glass vessels to make your gem water in, you only want to work with natural materials whenever possible.
~Choose the purpose of your gem water – energy booster, immune booster, stress reliever, emotional healing or simply chakra balancing.
~ Select your stones – If you don’t have a purpose for your gem water in mind, you can always select your stones intuitively. I recommend tumbled stones and no more than 3 stones to your water. I like to add an additional clear quartz tumble to amplify the energies.
~ Depending on the stones that you have chosen, you will need to determine if you are going to infuse the water internally (from inside the glass) or externally (from outside the glass). **Some properties of gemstones can make them toxic to humans (when consumed) and others break down when left in water so, if you are a newbie, always do your research before adding gemstones to your water! Don’t let this put you off, with time and practice you will know exactly which crystals babies you can and can’t put into your water. Here are two different sources that you can use to check if your stones are A-Ok! Healing Crystals & Hibiscus Moon.
~ Once you have determined what stones you have, you can use either of the below methods. If you are still not sure or feeling comfortable with putting your stones in water, you are can use the external method.

Internal Method (inside the glass).
~Cleanse your stones before placing them in the bottom of your vessel.
**To cleanse my crystals, I will hold them under cool, running water for about 30 seconds (per stone) with the intention that they are being cleaned physically and energetically, and being reset back to their natural state. I then ask that the stone will only be used for the greater good of those who come in contact with it.
~ Gently place your stones in the bottom of your glass, jar or jug. If you are using a larger jug or bottle with a smaller neck (can’t place your hand inside), I would recommend filling the bottle first then gently sliding the stones in. Do not drop your stones in as they may chip or break.
~ Fill your vessel with fresh, purified or spring water.
~ Place your vessel on a window sill or outside where there is sunlight and leave it to charge in the sun for 7 minutes. This is the time that was recommended to me by my mentor, I do, however, leave it a few minutes extra when using larger bottles.
~ Drink and enjoy! 🙂

External Method (outside the glass).
Just because the physical properties of your crystals may be toxic or they just don’t like water, doesn’t mean you can’t use their energy to make gem water!! This is the method you will use if  you are working with toxic stones.
~ Fill your desired vessel with fresh, purified or spring water.
~ Place your vessel in sunlight and simply place your gemstones around the outside of your vessel. The water inside your vessel will be charged with crystal energy and safe to drink. Follow charging time as above.

I often use a mix of stones that are both water friendly and water un-friendly, for example, I will often put a black tourmaline or black kyanite on the lid of my bottle when it’s charging. With time, you will know your crystal babies like the back of your hand, and before you know it you’ll be adding gem water to smoothies, teas or soups – I even give Green Moss Agate and Rose Quartz gem water to my house plants!

Have fun!
~ Love & Light, Kerry.
