Happy, healthy legs!

I’ve been lucky this pregnancy that I haven’t had any swelling or water retention in my legs, in fact, I’ve had pretty happy, healthy legs!

The last time I walked on the beach pregnant, my ankles swelled up like balloons  – glad that didn’t happen this past weekend. But after hours on the road and a busy weekend, my legs were feeling tired and heavy by Monday.

Do you ever have this? Here’s what I do when this happens.

Why your Crystal Grid isn’t working

Is your crystal grid not working?

Hello Loves! I want to talk to you about something that is SUPER important when working with your crystals, whether for self-healing, in crystal grids, for client healing sessions and even for protection – PROGRAMMING YOUR CRYSTALS.

💎As you know, crystals and gems have so many healing properties and ways that they help us in the different areas of our lives, it’s important that when using them for a specific purpose – like in grids – that we program them for the specific purpose in which we want them to work for us.

☀️Without programming them, they will more likely attune themselves to the energy that you are reflecting. For example, citrine works with our Solar Plexus Chakra assisting our self-esteem and personal power but is also known as the “money stone” and helps us attract wealth and abundance. When working with citrine in a Crystal grid to attract more abundance into your life, making sure you programme these stones to do just that, you’ll become frustrated and question why they aren’t working.

If you’re interested in learning more about crystals, or want to become a certified Vibrational Crystal healer, drop me a note below.
Have a sparking day Loves!

Healing properties of Sea Shells

healing properties of shells

We all love them, and have certainly collected many of them in our lives, but did know that the beautiful sea shells that we collect and use to decorate our lives have healing properties, like our sparkly healing crystals, that offer another level to our self-healing practices?

With their birthplace being concentrated in sea salt (we’re talking about the ocean here), and sacred geometry being an integral part of their make-up, shells have long been used by ancient tribes around the world as protectors from negative energies, and as tools to stimulate intuition and spiritual connection.

Because of the Moon’s influence on the ocean, sea shells also hold the energy of the Moon. Many shells, particularly sea snails and the nautilus (shown in image), form on a spiral, a powerful symbol of the Pagan Great Mother Goddess.

Shells have been used for centuries by many ancient, and modern day tribes, for a number of purposes – healing, protection, spell work, self-love practice, currency, and spiritual  & psychic awareness and growth/enhancement to name a few. For example, sea shells can contain and enhance Reiki with their shape, size, and structure, allowing a gentle but powerful healing energy that works with the healer to cleanse, balance and harmonise the aura and chakras!

Specific types of sea shells, like healing crystals, have specific healing properties. Abalone, for example, is commonly used to contain herbs and crystals, worn and used as a protection amulet to assist with general energetic protection and to ease feelings of anger, depression, fear, and sadness. Abalone has also been used to attract inspiration and creativity to those who carry it, wear it or even meditate with it.

healing properties of shellsBut what about the other types of sea shells?

There are very many types of sea shells from all over the world, but here are a few of the shells that I was taught the metaphysical meanings of.

🐚 Abalone Shell – communication, peace and beauty (self-love).
🐚 Clams, Muscles & Oysters – Purification, love and good fortune. Small clam shells were given as talismans (or tokens) of love.
🐚 Pearls (not a shell, but have an energetic bond with shells and ocean healing) – Pearls resonate with the Heart Chakra, and aid healing in this centre. They are said to take on the energy or the emotion of the wearer, positive or negative, and therefore should be cleansed often. However, charging Pearls with Heart Chakra crystals, or other high vibe stones, will assist with strengthening the body and heart, encouraging feelings of love, beauty, gentleness, comfort and inner peace. On a phsyical level, Pearls can help prevent heart attacks and strokes, assist with digestion and reduce the change of stomach ulcers.
🐚 Mother of Pearl (not shell specific) – Traditionally used to heighten intuition, psychic sensitivity and imagination (much like the shell of the Abalone), more modern uses include attracting prosperity, protection from negative energy and transmutation of negative energy. Mother of Pearl is helpful when treating high blood pressure, improving vision and accelarating wound healing (post-op or general).
🐚 Cone Shells – Traditionally used for protection. Personally, I use them to channel and direct energy (think single terminated quart points) in Reiki, Crystal healing sessions and in crystal grids.
🐚 Pansy Shell (Sand Dollar / Sea Biscuit) – My personal favourite!! If you’ve ever held a Pansy shell in your hand, you’ll notice how fragile its shell is, yet how strong its vibration is. Pansy shells hold the wisdom and information that we need in order to make necessary changes for healing, growth, spiritual expansion and transendance. Pansy Shells, formed around the 5-pointed star of sacred geometry, teaches us; to be gentle in our approach in life regardless of environmental conditions, to go with the flow and be flexible in our thinking and to work on changing belief systems that are detrimental to us, replacing them with new healthy belief systems without blaming ourselves or others. When we have faith we connect with the strength within and anything is possible. (There is a really great article here that explain the medicine of a Pansy Shell in more detail.)
🐚 Cowrie Shells – Used to maifest prosperity and abundance, particularly finanacial. According to African legend, if you are attracted to cowrie shells you could be family to an ocean spirit of wealth and earth. It has also been said that Cowrie shells hold Goddess protection which is very powerful and connected with the strength of the ocean. Throughout Africa, and South and North America, the cowrie symbolized the power of destiny and prosperity, and is still believed to teach stories of humility and respect to all those who possess them.
🐚 Limpet Shells – Courage, confidence, physical strength.
🐚 Moon Shells – Psychic awareness, purification, and peace.
🐚 Whelk Shells – Use for making dramatic, positive changes in your life.
🐚 Olive Shells – Cleansing and healing.

I encourage you to form your own relationships with your sea shells, as you would your healing crystals, and use your intuition to see how they ‘speak’ to you. Here is a simple way you can connect with your sea shells:
🐚 Cleanse and charge your sea shells the way you would your crystals
🐚 Hold one shell (one type) in your left hand, your receiving hand, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths to relax (you can meditate before hand and set your intention to energeticall connect with your shells, or you can fall into a semi-meditative state, either method have worked for me in the past, but do what feels right for you)
🐚 With your eyes closed, and shell gently placed in your left hand, notice any of the below sensations;
~ How does your body feel physically, do you feel any sensations in a particular area or part of your body?
~ Does the shell elicit any sensations in your subtle bodies, perhaps a particular chakra?
~ Does the shell elicit any particular thoughts or visions?
~ Does the shell bring up any particular memories, or emotions?
~ How does the shell make you feel overall – safe, insecure, calm, lucky, energised, etc?
Noticing these kinds of sensations will give you some insight into how that perticular shell can, or wants to, work with you.

I hope you enjoy discovering the magic of your sea shells! If you have any questions about the healing properties of sea shells or how to incorporate them into your personal or professional practice, shoot me a message below.

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. 🙌🌿☀️💖

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.
~ Love & Light, Kerry 💕

Monday Mandala ~ Follow your Passion.

Happy Monday Lovelies!! Is anyone else as excited as I am for this week??
img_3945This morning while I was doing a little active meditation making my mandala, I was being pulled to remind everyone to follow their PASSION this week! 💓 Playing it safe in life will only lead to feelings of boredom and being unfulfilled 🚨
If you’ve been asking, and looking, for more happiness in your life, now is the time to act on it! 🎆 The flame of passion has been ignited in your heart, don’t ignore it now. Take risks, follow your heart’s desires, pay attention to new ideas and a burning passion that accompanies these ideas – it is Divine Inspiration guiding you onto the next step!! 🌸✨ Today’s crystal energies…

💜 Lepidolite is the centre of our crystal flower bringing us balance and inner peace during times of transition. Lepidolite helps us shift and restructure old energy patterns, promoting spiritual transcendence and cosmic awareness.
💜Pink Botswana Agate are our delicate petals, assisting us in releasing any repressed emotions that need to be addressed so that we may release and heal. Botswana Agate brings an almost anti-depressant energy into our space, assisting those who have trouble living authentically and allowing for understanding of the need for deeper meaning. 💜An amethyst stem, protecting us through stressful times and giving us the support we need to embrace our inner strength.
💜Two beautiful Unakite leaves, balancing our emotional and energetic bodies and gently assisting us with releasing any energetic blocks while we transition from old to new, and sending our peaceful vibes to our surroundings.

Affirmation for the week: “I embrace the changes occurring in my life. I recognise that all changes bring better life situations. Favourable opportunities present themselves to me in many ways. I recognise these opportunities and follow through on their promise. I am always in the right place at at the right time”. 🌟🙏🏼💕🌿 Remember to take care of yourself during times of transition, be kind, nurturing and loving towards yourself and others. 💓✨💎
~ Namaste, Kerry.

~ Don’t get down on YOUR luck ~

IMG_3544Feeling down on your luck? ☘This week has been a little crazy for me, but I still make time to check in with myself, my guides and angels, and make time for all of you! So, while my mandala is a couple day’s late this week, I still wanted to check in with the energies and see what we all needed to focus on and get us through any challenges we may be facing this week. ✨ As always, I make these intuitively to as a tool to guide myself, and anyone else that they call too!

Have you been feeling down on your luck?  Things just not going the way you planned? We are reminded today that WE create our realities. In order for us to truly manifest what we desire, we have to be mindful that our thoughts and action mirror those intentions. Today’s crystal grid, although by appearance a simple one, it is packed full of abundance and high vibes!!I was drawn to use green aventurine, apophyllite points x2 and clear quartz in the shape of the infinity symbol!!!

☘Green Aventurine is known as the good luck stone and is often used in rituals with green candles, kept in purses or drawers, and used in crystal grids to attract money and prosperity. It is one of the main stones to attract luck, abundance, and success.

☘ Apophyllite is a particularly high vibration crystal, great for filling a room with high vibrations of peace and love. Meditating with Apophyllite helps increase intuition, connection with guides, enable us to receive visions and insights (intuition) about current situations that may need some introspection.

☘ Clear Quartz is a powerful amplifier of energy and intention! One of the most versatile, yet most powerful crystals you can own.

If you find yourself wishing that you had more luck, be assured that you have all the luck that you need. Focus on your vast abundance, and you will attract more! Spend some time meditating, this week and always Mental clarity and self-trust are gifts of regular meditation practice.

☘ Affirmation to assist with changing your mindset ~ “I am so incredibly lucky! I have many blessings in my life. Abundance and prosperity are constantly flowing in my life. I am grateful for these gifts!
~ Stay happy and loved, Kerry.watermark 2 PNG
