Flower Therapy for Kids

flower therapy for kids“…I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body.” ~ Eckart Tolle. 🌺

Hey Momma’s 🙋🏻If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know how much I love gentle, healing energies of Flower Therapy! 🌸If you’re new here 👋Flower Therapy is a form of energy healing done by bringing the unique colour and essence of a particular flowing into the space of the Chakra, or area of our body, that it vibrationally corresponds too. ✨Flower Therapy is a form of both active and silent meditation, from subconsciously selecting the flowers you want to work with, to placing them mindfully on your body and laying quietly while they work their magic! 🌈

Flower Therapy is an amazing holistic exercise that we can do with, and for, our littles; helping to release excessive energies that may be building up in their systems, grounding and connecting them, cleansing and restoring their natural balance (especially when they’ve been around too many electromagnetic frequencies) and energizing them with all those gorgeous high vibes! 💫Kids are naturally more dominant in their lower four chakras, especially from birth to 7 years, making them more in touch with their natural connection to the Earth, but is great for kids of all ages! 💚

So how do you go about doing this?

~ Allow your child to pick a flower for each Chakra (or the colours of the 🌈) , using white or purple for the crown (check previous flower Therapy posts for suggestions).

~ Let me spend as long as they need for this process, they will be attracted to the flower that they need (same applies for you momma!!)

~ Depending on the age of your little, you can have them lay the flowers on their body making a rainbow from their feet up to their head, or they can play with them as they sit quietly with them self.

~ If they are younger, ask them to make patterns or pictures with their flowers – what they create is not important, it’s the process of mindfully having the flowers in their personal space.

~ If they are older, ask them to lay down with the flowers in place, to close their eyes and imagine the rainbow lights from the flowers filling their body, starting with red and ending with their head.

~ When they are finished, they will know, ask them if they saw anything in their imagination, or felt any sensations in their body, if they had any emotions come up or memories while they were laying there. This is a subtle way of introducing them to being conscious of their thoughts, emotions, energies and physical body.

flower therapy for children ~ While your child is choosing their flowers, pay attention to the flowers, and colours, they reach for first! This will give you some insight into which areas, and chakras, need work.

Children are growing and learning (about themselves, others and their world), experiencing new things, overcoming challenges and disappointments, creating and pushing boundaries, loving and being loved, exploring independence but wanting security…. and all of these natural process’ can influence their energetic (and emotional) health. Giving them the tools to help them through these areas and challenges teaches them to;
~ Be conscious of them self, and others
~ Take time to care for them self and respect that others require the same
~ Be empowered and self-heal

Doing this activity with your little is a great way to spend QT with them, and get some beautiful, natural healing in at the same time 🙂 Questions? Pop them below.

Essential Oils

Emotional Aromatherapy: Equinox Energiser

I don’t know about you guys, but the changing of seasons has hit me hard!! 🍃We’re moving into winter here in S.A and my energy has taken a hard knock (as it usually does). Even though it happens year after year, the drastic winds of change and push to slow down have a major influence on my body and soul.

On Monday, I felt the intensity and was drawn to diffuse these three blends together and WOW!! They’ve been diffusing in my house ever since!! Whether you’re preparing to slow down, or throwing your windows open for a spring clean – this combo will have you feeling lighter, refreshed and energised!! 🙌🍃✨

________

🍂Citrus Bliss blend is a powerful “get up and go” blend for when motivation and drive are low!
🍃Purify blend is not only amazing for clearing energies in your home but helps us release emotions and energies that are weighing us down and creating dis-comfort or dis-ease in the body!
🍂Elevation blend does exactly as the bottle States – brings joy, high vibes and balances our emotions especially when we’re feeling down or low. It’s a great companion to Purify when releasing yucky vibes and helps us let go!

_________

I’m so glad I listened to my intuition and tried this Combo, it’s definitely going to be my go to in times of change and transformation (and changing seasons 😜). Do you ever intuitively pair oils?

Chakras

I am Solar Plexus Chakra!

solar plexus chakra Hello Beauty!☀️Today we begin the next chapter of our Chakra series – to learn a little more than the basics about our Solar Plexus Chakra! 🌞

I’m always so grateful that the information and holistic education I share is able to reach so many 💕🙏 If you’re enjoying our Chakra series & learning how to bring balance and healing to these areas of your life, I would love for you to pass it forward & share the love with your friends! So please tags them below and let’s jump in. 🐝

Our Solar Plexus Chakra, our third centre is located just above our naval and represents;
✨our personal power house,
✨our self-confidence,
✨our self-esteem and will power,
✨our motivation and ambition,
✨our beliefs and value systems,
✨our ability to respect FREE WILL,
✨personal boundaries (ours and the boundaries of others),
✨our motivation,
✨our career,
✨our ability to manifest abundance,
✨and our independence.

So how do we know if our Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced or could use a little TLC?
🐝Balanced ~ You think highly of the person You are & your ability to be successful & abundant in all areas of your life. You have a strong will & a healthy sense of personal power. You are motivated to pursue your goals in a healthy & proactive way that brings joy, success & personal fulfilment”.
🐝Imbalanced – You have low self-esteem & base your self-worth on the opinions of others. You generally feel insecure & unconfident in your abilities to accomplish your goals & dreams, you avoid offering your effort & ideas due to a fear of failing. You tend to seek & need recognition from others to feel appreciated. You feel powerless to build the life that you desire & often settle for less than you know you deserve. You struggle to feel motivated and often feel unfulfilled.

If our solar centre becomes unbalanced, we tend to feel stressed all the time & powerless to gain control, leaving us mentally & physically exhausted. We may have “gut” feelings but are not sure of what or where they come from, contributing to your distress & discomfort.

If any of these triggered something in you don’t worry, Lovely, next we’ll learn simple self-healing exercises to bring you more balance & healing.

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.

🌿Want to know more about my MBS Detox and Cleanse?? Check the original post here.
🌿Do you have a self-love ritual that you take time for? 🌿

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! 🙌
