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! 🌿💜

Monday Mandala; Balance your Emotions

mandala-wherehumrestsHappy Monday Lovelies!

As I sat down to do my morning routine, I was immediately moved to do this #mondaymandala for you all! It seems that this week is going to be a heart chakra week, finding balance in our emotions and taking the time to honour and nurture these emotions! 💞 Balancing our emotions can often be incredibly tricky but whether grieving the loss of a loved one, dealing with uncomfortable situations, nursing a broken heart or just having difficulty “digesting” what’s happening in your life – take the time to nurture yourself and know that you are loved.

Balancing our emotions can often be incredibly tricky but whether grieving the loss of a loved one, dealing with uncomfortable situations, nursing a broken heart or just having difficulty “digesting” what’s happening in your life – take the time to nurture yourself and know that you are loved. 💛Feel the grief, pain, and anger, allow yourself to cry and release the negative energy from your body. Open your heart and have more compassions for yourself, and others. Take a stroll by a river, go for a swim in the ocean or take a long bath ~ water, like our emotions, cleanses us and purifies our minds, bodies and energetic bodies (our soul) from any negative energy toxins. 🌊 Our beautiful healing crystals assist the release and healing of these areas.

☀️Today’s crystals are:
~ Unakite, connecting our base and heart chakras allowing us to move forward from heart hurts. Helps balance our emotions.
~ Apache Tears, assists us with grieving and the release and balance of our emotions, particularly repressed emotion. Helps those who find difficulty in crying to release their emotions.
~ Howlite assists us with emotional expression. Helps us manage stress and anger, and communicate them from a place of compassion rather than reaction.
~ Balance EO blend appropriately named as it helps balance our emotions and keep us grounded allowing us to release these emotions and move forward to heal.

💓Using holistic tools during times of emotional upset, stress, or any situation that finds your emotions feeling a little off-kilter, are simple and practical ways to help you release, heal, uplift, restore, focus, rebuild, find comfort, inspire, or simply relax you. They are an affordable and VALUABLE tool for your everyday self-care and self-healing practice. 🙌🌿☀️💖

Crystals for Breast Cancer

crystals-breast-cancer-wherehumrestsHello Lovelies! It’s Breast Cancer awareness month this month, and instead of doing my weekly Mandala I wanted to share some crystals to help with the prevention and treatment of Breast cancer.

💗 Breast Cancer, or any Cancer, can be a particularly difficult time emotionally, physically and energetically! Before I talk Crystals, I want to discuss the manifestation of Breast cancer in our bodies.

🌸 Metaphysically, our breasts represent our mothering principle, to nurture (ourselves and others) and to receive nourishment in return. Often, when there are problems with this area (and the heart chakra), we find ourselves “over-mothering” either a person or a situation – ask yourself, what are you not allowing to happen naturally? What can you not let go of? Perhaps you are having a hard time dealing with allowing your kids to grow up, become independent and lead lives of their own? perhaps you feel that you’re stuck in a relationship where you are being “mothered”? Are you particularly overprotective, overbearing and smothering in your relationships, yet you don’t take the time to care for yourself?
💕 This is a particularly difficult topic to discuss, and it applies to both men and women! When a Cancer is involved, it often indicates a deep resentment in this area – do you hold a bitterness towards your mother for being over-bearing? Often these are not things that we think about and allow to sink deep within us. I know it’s hard to often face these hurts Lovelies, but the freedom that comes once we release them is totally worth it!

💗 So, in honour of the prevention of breast cancer, here are some beautiful crystals and essential oils to keep with you and a loving affirmation that will speak to your heart centre and make sure you remember to love and nurture yourself! 💕

🌸 Amethyst is a well-known crystal to help the body back to a state of health and normalcy, especially from a bout with cancer.  Worn as a pendant, it will send loving healing energies to the entire body throughout the day.  As a cluster, Amethyst is a great piece to keep your house or bedroom.  Amethyst carries a high spiritual vibration, making it excellent for all types of crisis.
🌸 Another stone that I consider helpful specifically for breast cancer is Rose Quartz.  Rose Quartz is the premier crystal associated with the Higher Heart Chakra, with a strong influence on the breast area.  This soothing but powerful healing crystal lends gentle, loving support to those with cancer.  Rose Quartz also carries the physical healing property of absorbing negative energies from the body, making it perfect for grid work on the body.  Emotionally, Rose Quartz offers its high healing vibration to assist one in working through all types of grief.
🌸 Smokey Quartz is another crystal that is helpful for those with cancer, drawing negative energies out of the body.  Smokey Quartz is known for its ability to absorb and ground negative energies out of the body, and into the earth to be transmuted.  These properties make Smokey Quartz a great support crystal for those undergoing chemo and radiation therapies.
🌸 Master Healer, Clear Quartz for its master healing vibrations and its ability to focus and amplify one’s healing intent.  Clear Quartz can be used with any other crystals to greatly amplify those energies.  The most important property of Clear Quartz is its ability to work on all levels of being (mind, body and soul).  As most diseases begin as a disruption of vibrational energy, Clear Quartz works on this level while influencing the physical energies at the same time.  Clear Quartz functions as an excellent energy cleanser, which helps maintain a clear energy field as the body fights the cancer.
🌸 Loving Affirmation: “I am important. I count. I now care for and nourish myself with love and joy. I lovingly forgive and release all of the past. I choose to fill my world with joy. I love and approve of myself. I allow others the freedom to be who they are. I am safe. I am free.”
🌸Essential Oils can go a long way to uplifting our moods when we’re going through difficult times. Doterra’s Console EO Blend has a beautiful, floral scent that comforts us and reminds us to be patient during times of emotional healing. Diffusing the oil blend while lying quietly with your crystals will assist you with removing feelings of grief and sadness, and put you back on the path of hope and healing!

If you are, or have someone close to you who it struggling with breast cancer, and would like to chat to me about treatments, crystals or energy healing, get in touch with me below.

~ Love & Light, Kerry.

*I am not a medical physician and do not give out medical advice. That being said, I do believe that crystals work on an energetic level and are a form of supplemental healing to be used alongside medical care.

Essential Oils: What they are and how to use…

Hello Lovelies!! So now that we know what crystals are, and how we can use them as a beautiful holistic healing tool, lets get onto one of our other amazing tools for self-healing and mood management ~ Essential Oils!!!

essential-oils-wherehumrestsWhat are Essential Oils, and how do I use them?
Essential Oils are Mother Nature’s Medicine. They have countless uses, and have been used specifically for emotional aromatherapy for thousands of years! I believe they are the best tool you can use for immediate stress relief and mood management!!

Today, popular uses include everything from minor first aid and alternative medicine to using them as natural house cleaners, used in cooking, scented candles, and body / skin care products. Personally, I use, and teach about how to use them in the following four ways – (this will naturally depend on your personal needs);
~ Chakra Balancing – along with our healing crystals
~ Space Clearing and adding Good Vibes (negative ions) to your Environment
~ Mood Management
~ Emotional and Spiritual Self-Healing

How do I use Essential Oils?

There are three main application methods used when working with essential oils.

These methods are;
~ Topical Application – properly diluted with a carrier oil when necessary, especially for babies, children and those with sensitive skin.
~ Aromatic – inhaled from an open bottle, or diffused into the air via a diffuser.
~ Internal – I do not recommend, but feel free to use your own judgment.

**Personally, I only use Essential Oils Topically and Aromatically.

There are many Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils that are labelled as being “safe for internal use”, but I would encourage you to do your homework. Make sure that you are comfortable with your knowledge of how to use essential oils internally, before attempting this application method.

Internal use of essential oils is not an area that I touch upon during my workshops, in my blog, or in my personal practice, but if this interests you, you may enjoy the Modern Essentials Book for more information!

There are many essential oil companies out there, with many different levels of purity and grade. I have used a few different brands in the past, but today I only use (and recommend) Doterra Oils. This is just my personal preference, what I teach with, and the brand that I highly recommend to my student and clients. When choosing which essential oils brand you are going to use, you want to make sure that their potency (how the plants and herbs are farmed, ie. organic, will result in a more potent, higher quality oil) and their purity.

Many essential oils available are not certified “pure”, meaning they contain synthetic fillers and other elements, like alcohol, that dilutes the qualities of the oils and diminishes their health benefits.

With diluted products, especially those with alcohol, your oils will evaporate, and you will end up using a lot more than necessary and spending a lot more money on oils in the long run. So, choosing a quality brand will not only save you money, but you can be assured that you are using oils that are going to be safe to use and benefit your physical, mental, emotional, and energetic wellness.

In the next post, I will discuss how to balance your chakras using essential oils!

Change: A time of Beautiful Transformation

crystals-for-change-wherehumrestsHello Lovelies! Change can be such a beautiful experience, but can also be completely terrifying. 🙈

There are so many beautiful people that I know at the moment going through these changes, so it’s only appropriate that this came up in my crystal reading this morning. ⚫️⚪️

At times we’re afraid of making changes because we don’t know what will happen. Take comfort knowing that the changes you are going through are for the best. You’re walking through a gate into a NEW LIFE! ✨

Don’t worry about your future, it’s all going to work out just fine – that’s why you are now going through these changes! ⭐️
These changes come, in part, because you’re growing older. It’s okay for you to change, change is a part of life. You’re letting go of things that no longer work well for you, and you’re bringing in the new. 🌱 These changes may seem to make friends and family act differently, but in the end, everyone will seem closer, you’ll make new friends and form new relationships through this process, people that serve your higher good will be attracted into this new space you are creating for yourself. 💛
It is important now, more than ever, to take are care if yourself (mind, body, emotions and soul, nourish your spirit and participate in loving acts towards yourself because even though change is good, it can create stress that affects your body, your thoughts, and your emotions. Seek comfort and support from someone close to you at this time, someone you can talk to and who will hold your hand during this time. 💛

Your beautiful crystals and essential oils can provide a HUGE amount of support during times of change.

Crystals used in this grid; 
⚫️ Black Obsidian ~ A grounding stone that helps us to “see our dark side”. When working with black obsidian during times of change, we are able to take a long, hard look at ourselves, and then smile. Working with black obsidian during these times will assist with the release of negative emotions that we may experience, like irritability and tension. Wearing black obsidian, or carrying it with you, will keep you grounded and protected from negative energies too.
⚫️ Apache Tears ~ A type of obsidian, but a powerful emotional healer. Working with Apache Tears during times of change assist us with the clearing of emotional blockages, assisting with behavioural changes, help detx the body of negative energetic gunk, and help us deal with difficult emotions like grief and forgiveness, allowing us to physically shed tears uninhibitedly.
⚫️ Snowflake Obsidian ~  Another type of obsidian, this time helping us overcome feelings of fear and vulnerability that come with change. Working with Snowflake Obsidian assist us with seeing all aspects, including ourselves, situations and others, clearly so that we can actively participate in the tranformation from negative to positive, balancing our mind, body and spirit.
⚫️ Clear Quartz ~ The Master Healer, and the feel better stone! Offering us clarity when things seem hazy and unclear, clear quartz brings radiant energy into our space, releiving negativity and promoting healing!

Essential Oils for Change: 
⚪️ Breathe EO Blend and White Fir EO used together in times when we begin to feel a little overwhelmed by the process of change (especially emotionally) will assist us regulating our breath, calming and grounding us and promoting inner peace, stability and emotional balance.
⚪️ Lavender Essential Oil stimulates our Third Eye, helping us to “find the silver lining” and see the bigger picture, to view life a new, honest and whole perspective in times of change.
⚪️ Elevation Essential Oil Blend lifts out spirit, revitalises us, and boosts our confidence!

Change is not always an easy journey, but if you approach it in the right way, are loving and nurturing towards yourself and find a space / person where you feel safe, and work with your healing tools to manage your moods and bring comfort and promote healing, the process will be a beautiful one. If you can learn to enjoy life’s changes, you may just enjoy life itself a little more. 💫  If you are interested in receiving a personalised reading, you can book below. To purchase any of the oils mentioned above, visit the Shop tab on my Menu above. I hope these tools bring you some support and love during these times of change. If you would like to learn more about how to use these tools for your own self-healing, get in touch with me, I will be more than happy to walk you through this personal development journey.

What are Healing Crystals?

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Today I want to talk about sparkly healing crystals!! Yay!! I want to address a topic that comes up quite often.

What are Healing Crystals, and do they have magical powers?

healing-crystals-wherehumrestsHealing Crystals are simply gemstones that are found in nature, taken from the earth and used for their unique metaphysical and vibrational properties during crystal healing sessions, meditation, or as pieces to have within your environment, used as a holistic tool to improve the energy of your space.

They acquired the name ‘crystals’ from their unique, natural formations during creation in the ground. Crystals are natural energy transmuters and amplifiers, and their perfect geometric crystalline structure makes them amazing tools for helping to “tune” the vibrations of our chakras.

They also help us to calm and focus our mind, and help us to attract more of the energy that we want in our lives. Clear Quartz, for example, acts as a natural “storage device” and can be used to amplify our thought energy (our intentions), making them an amazing tool for working with the Universal Law of Attraction!

Now, this is all WAY advanced stuff, and I go over all of this in more detail in the crystal healing course I offer, but I hope this at least gives you an idea of what healing crystals are and how they are commonly used.

Raw chunks of crystal and stone are often placed in machines that sand and polish them into smooth pieces, which are often referred to as “tumbled stones”, and this is the type of healing crystal that seems to be most popular among practitioners and self-healers. Personally, I love my tumbled crystals!

Do crystals have magical healing powers? I get asked this a LOT and I’m to be very honest and say that the way that I use healing crystals and resonate with how they work is my own way, so I am bit bias here… I personally don’t believe in “magic”, at least in the conventional way that the term is most often used, but some people do. However, I do believe that belief (and intention) is the most powerful force in the Universe, so, with that in mind, if someone truly and deeply believes that crystals have magical healing powers, perhaps maybe for them, they do!

I am more of a practical user of crystals, but I am a HUGE believer in miracles, Universal Source and the power of intention, positive thought, energy and the strength and will of the human Spirit. I believe the real power of healing is within us, and we use healing crystals as a pure and brilliant vibratory tool that aids us in bringing more balance to the natural vibrations within our energy body. I also resonate with being able to use them as tools for energy transmutation (basically purifying energy – recycling negative vibe energy into positive vibe energy, similar to a water filtering system), and the ability to help us amplify our strong and positive intentions that we set forth to bring upon our own emotional and spiritual self-healing.

I view Conscious Beings as their own healers, and the crystal as a natural tool that mother nature and the Universe has provided us with to aid us in our journey to finding more balance, joy and health. I really do believe that the only way there is for you to get a correct answer to this question is for you to use crystals yourself, learn about them, and discover how they work for you, and how they fit within your own unique and beautiful belief system. I will share with you exactly how I use healing crystals and my personal theories of why they work in another post, but for now I will let YOU be the judge as to whether or not my theories and ideas are a good match for your own self-healing practice!

Wellness Toolkit: No more Morning Sickness!

img_4258Hello Lovelies! If you’re Preggy, or already a momma you’ll know that Morning Sickness can be a pretty yucky symptom!
There are some lucky ladies who don’t suffer from it, but for the most here’s a natural, Holistic toolkit to ease Morning Sickness and the nausea that comes with it:
🌿Ginger, Peppermint and Lemon EO’s all alleviate discomfort in our digestive systems and promote uplifted moods. Diffuse or inhale aroma from bottle, but I advise against investing oils during pregnancy.
💎Holding citrine, dioptase, green fluorite, obsidian, sapphire and or tiger’s eye until feelings of nausea and vomiting subside. Laying down with the stones lined up from your sacral to your throat chakras – from just below your navel up to your throat – for 10-15 mins with your oils diffusing will help you manage that awful morning sickness and have you feeling a little more normal and a little less frazzled.

I hope this brings you some comfort and relief so that you can enjoy this special time of your life! 💕🌿✨

Stop-Itch!! Natural remedies for mosquitos

Hello Lovelies!!! A darling friend of mine who is living in Switzerland asked me this week if I had any suggestions for mosquitos because they’re being eaten alive… Well of course I do!! 😜🌿
Seeing as it’s almost mozzie season for us in South Africa too, I thought I would share two essential oils – one to keep them bugs at bay, and the other to soothe bites if those buggers get through!! 💛
img_3869I know many of us easily spray the chemical options, but there really are natural options that are not only MUCH healthier for us and our littlies, but kinder on our environment too! 🌾✨🙏🏼

🌿 Doterra’s TerraShield Blend is AMAZING to diffuse in the house during the hotter months, to apply topically (diluted for kiddies), but my personal preferred way to use it is as a body spray! Super handy to keep around when entertaining outdoors,  for when the kids are playing in the garden, hiking and camping (especially near water), and just at home.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the 100ml body spray:
~ 1 x brown or blue glass spray bottle
~ 100 ml filtered water
~ 10 drops Doterra TerraShield eo Blend
~ 10 drops Doterra Lemon eo

🌿 Apart from being all kinds of dreamy, Lavender eo is an analgesic, a natural antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory and an antiseptic!! It’s all kinds of amazing! To ease mosquito bites, other insect bites, and even Eczema, just apply the oil topically. (Always dilute with fractionated coconut oil or olive oil for kiddies before applying.) Depending on the oil brand that you use, it should give you itch relief for a couple hours! However, there are MANY brand on the market that are diluted with alcohol… which is why I use Doterra oils. I am not affiliated with them in any way, they are just a brand I perfer to use. If you are going to use other oil brands, make sure you choose brands that are 100% organic

Okay, do you understand yet why I have all kinds of feels for essential oils?? 😜🌿💗

If you have any questions regarding essential oils and how to incorporate them as part of your self-care routine, comment below or get in touch, I’d love to chat! Oh, and it’s Friday!! Don’t forget to Smile! 😍
