Energy Healing

Self-Love Sauna Combo: Release negativity and feel energised.

essential oils to release negativity Happy Saturday Beauties!!🍉If you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ll know that I regularly like do a total MBS (mind/body/soul) detox and cleanse in the sauna at my local gym!

💦Getting rid of excess and negative energy is so essential for whole health.💦The last few times I’ve gone, I’ve taken these three beauties to assist me with the flushing and removal of unwanted energy gunk, and I’m absolutely loving how energised I’m feeling afterwards (usually I get a little sleepy with a mild headache).🌿

💧Breathe opens my passage ways and assists the releasing process,
💧Balance keeps me grounded and connected to Earth, directing the flow of energy toxins out of my body,
💧and Clary Sage helps me release any self-limiting beliefs and opens me up to new ideas and possibilities! 💗

While I’m cooling down, I use Grapefruit eo which reminds me to appreciate, love and accept my physical body ensuring that my relationship with myself stays positive!
💗So how do I use these in the sauna?? I simply take a facial tissue, fold it in half and then in half again, dab a little oil from the dropper of the bottle onto the tissue – Breathe, Balance and Clary Sage together (next to eachother on the tissue) and simply place it next to you in the sauna. The heat from the sauna will disperse the scent into the air around you.

Energy Healing

Simple Sanctuaries

Embarking on spiritual practice can feel pretty OVERWHELMING! I know that I use to look in admiration at the people who radiated health and spiritual awareness and thought… “My house is super crazy, I’m always stressed, my child always seems to be hyper, I have weight that I want to lose but I don’t have time to go to gym, my diet isn’t great, I don’t have time to read the books that I would love to read… Being that beautiful and balanced person just feels so… out of reach…”
img_3933Yes, there are those amazing and beautiful people out there, but there are other ways to bring spirituality into your day, in a way that feels easy and natural to who you are and where you are at this point in your journey.
Baby steps, and five minutes here and there, can completely shift your day, can bring you deeper into the moment, and can help you connect to your centre and higher self, in your own way that is practical for your lifestyle.
☀️ Take your shower, for example. This was the first area in my home that I began to actually use, as a pathway to my spiritual practice (which by the way is still incredibly simple and practical). If you want spiritual healing to be a part of your life, but don’t know how to start, start in your shower. Each morning when you step inside, use this as a time to wash negativity away and to connect to your spirit and divine love. If you’ve followed any of my blog posts, you’ll know that one thing I talk about REGULARLY is how to cleanse your mind, body, AND soul of any energetic gunk!
☀️ Here is something that you can say to yourself (or out loud) during your shower time: “Please cleanse my mind, cleanse my mind. Please cleanse my body, cleanse my body. Please cleanse my Soul, cleanse my Soul. Please cleanse my mind, body, and Soul. Thank you.”
☀️ You can do this with your eyes closed, your hands open and down at your sides or in prayer position, breathing deeply, whatever feels natural and comfortable to you. I like to physically imagine beautiful white light coming down through the shower, cleaning all the energetic gunk away, starting with my mind, down through my body and over my spirit and aura, running over my body and down the drain. You can say it as many times as you like, but try to make a point to do this for yourself daily, and I promise you that, in those moments, you will be able to find that peaceful centre that you desire to connect with.

Let me know how this works for you in the comments below! Here is a blog post on another cleansing exercise that you can try, and also a little more on what energetic gunk is ~ MBS Detox and Cleanse.

~ Cleanse my Mind, Body, and Soul. Part 2…

IMG_3319Last week I discussed the importance of what I call a full mind, body and soul detox and cleanse, and if you have any questions about that or not quite sure what I was talking about, drop me a mail or comment below and I will get in touch!

Today I want to share my personal MBS Detox routine that I set time aside for at least twice a week. If I don’t get a chance to do it, I really start to feel it! My body gets achy, my energy levels drop, I start becoming irritable and cranky, and I just start feeling pretty dreadful. It’s a simple practice that I made a point of regularly incorporating into my week, and like I said previously, I now can’t live without it!!

Before I get into the details, I want to just remind you that this is a practice that I have developed through my own personal self-care and works for my mind, body, and soul. I encourage everyone to find something that works for you and only do what makes you feel 100% comfortable. 

So here’s what I do, it’s really pretty simple and practical. At least twice a week I will use my local gym’s sauna and steam rooms to 1. detox (sauna) and 2. cleanse (steam). Aside from the additional health benefits of steam rooms and saunas, this is my weekly “spring cleaning”.

Detox

I begin in the sauna, and as I’m sitting there feeling my body warm up, I intend that the heat from the sauna is bringing all the negative energy and toxins stored in my body, my mind and my energetic body to the surface. Naturally, the heat of the sauna soothes your nerve endings and warms and relaxes muscles, in turn relieving the tension from your body and minimizing joint pain.

Close your eyes, lay down (or sit) and relax. Breathe deeply in and out, visualising the warm air entering your body, warming up your insides, circulating your body and loosening all that energetic gunk, dis-comfort or pain that is being stored. Starting from your toes, up your legs, through your torso, into your heart and chest, up your throat into your mind and out down your arms and fingers. Feel the heat lifting and carrying that gunk, the aches and pains out of your body through your feet, hand and skin (perspiration). If there is a particular ache in my body, I say “I release what no longer serves me” when I get to it, this helps the body lift it and carry it away. Do this as many times as you feel necessary, and remember intention is everything here!

Once you feel that you have had enough time in the sauna (listen to your body, it will guide you), cool down completely before the next step. You can rinse off in the shower to help cool down.

Cleanse

Once your heart rate has slowed to normal, and you have cooled down, enter the steam room. Repeat the detox process, but with one little difference. Now, as you breathe in the moist air, your intention and visualisation is that the warm, pure air is cleaning and cleansing every part of your body, mind, and energetic body. Feel the white air fill the now cleansed spaces with love, compassion, and gratitude. Intend that the heavy, wet air that surrounds you is a heavy blanket, covering you and clearing away any energetic gunk that lingers in, and around, you.

When you feel you are cleansed and have had enough time in the steam room, wash off and you are set to go!

If you don’t have access to a steam room or sauna, you can also do this in the shower or soaking in the tub which I do if I can’t get to the gym. There is no rule on how long you need to do it for, but I caution when using a sauna and steam room to use common sense, don’t push your body beyond what feels right and comfortable.

Personally, I love the heat from the sauna, and can spend up to an hour in it, but that is ME! I also use tumbled smokey quartz in the steam room to assist with the removal of energetic gunk, but I will go do another post on how you can incorporate healing crystals and essential oils into cleansing exercises.

**If you have low blood pressure, are pregnant or have cardiac issues, please do seek medical advice before-hand. It is often recommended to have short breaks in between sauna and steam room sessions to cool down, i.e. use the sauna for 10 minutes, exit and cool down and enter for an additional 10 minutes.

Regular MBS detox and cleanse goes a long way to a healthy flow of energy through the body, resulting in us feeling more balanced, reducing negative emotions and behaviours, like mood swings, stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!

Until next time.

~ 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. 😉
