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.

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!

African Turquoise

African Turquoise - Where Hum RestsHave you heard about African Turquoise?? Often mistaken for common Turquoise, African Turquoise is its own incredibly unique stone.

A teal, speckled form of jasper, this African stone offers amazing qualities and energies and is considered the ‘Stone of Evolution’ in Africa!

This particular type of Turquoise brings about, and assists with, major shifts and transformation in our lives! Its encouraging energy opens our minds to the possibility of new (things, opportunities, thoughts, mindsets, ways of life, paradigms..) and helps us to see the need for development and metamorphosis, within ourselves and within humanity. Traditionally, African Turquoise was used by tribe members during initiation periods to access the knowledge and guidance of the ancestors during these times of change and growth, initiating the pathway to a clear and focused mind.

Use African Turquoise to work with your Third Eye Chakra when seeking guidance and knowledge from your Higher Self, and when wanting to understand your true soul purpose.

It encourages those on personal development and self-empowerment journeys and offers balance and confidence necessary to keep pushing on when the process gets a little tough (as we all know it can at times!).Carrying African Turquoise with you, or wearing it, will renew your spirit, boost the flow of energy within and around you, and help you more clearly see your life path – strengthening all bodies (energetic, physical, mental and emotional) while you grow, transform and ascend.

Food Therapy for the Sacral Chakra

Sacral Chakra food Did you know that choosing foods that have specific vibrations corresponding to your chakras can help raise that chakra’s vibration – healing, balancing and energising it?

One of my best things about energy medicine is that you can address issues in your energetic field before they manifest as physical ailments in your body! There are so many natural ways to do this, and food therapy – eating for your chakras – is just one of them!! 🙌🌿💕

So, if you’re feeling like your Sacral Chakra needs a little TLC, or you battle with any of the emotional/physical discomforts associated with the Sacral Chakra (see first Sacral Chakra post in feed 👇), try including some of these foods into your diet;
~ sweet potato
~ pumpkin
~ carrots
~ oranges
~ any foods related to water or with a high water content
~ foods that benefit the reproductive system or that nourish the sexual/creativity centre
~ fats and oils
~ fish – especially wild salmon
~ nuts & seeds: almonds, walnuts, pistachios, cashews, sunflower and pumpkin seeds
~ melons, mangos, strawberries, passion fruit, oranges, tangerines, and coconut
~ Honey is also super beneficial for this centre

🐝You won’t only be eating for fuel and nourishment, you’ll be eating to support your Chakra too. 🙌😍

Do you have favourite Sacral Chakra foods?

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.

Safety. A Base Chakra topic.

Safety-base chakra propertiesLet’s talk Safety.

Feeling safe in our world is a topic that many people struggle with when working with the Base Chakra.

If you’re unsure of the current energetic state of your Base Chakra, ask yourself these questions and (honestly) be aware of how they make you feel:
🔺Do you feel safe in your life?
🔺Do you feel safe in your home?
🔺Do you worry about the safety of your family?
🔺How protected and cared for do you feel, whether by yourself, your significant other or by a Divination that resonates with you?
🔺Are you afraid of anyone or a particular type of situation?
🔺Do you have a home?
🔺Do you have food and water?
🔺Do you have access to sanitation and the things you need for your personal hygiene?
🔺How safe do you feel out in public?
🔺Are you constantly worrying about what “could” happen?
🔺What kinds of thoughts, fears, or emotions come up when you hear the word “Survival”? Do you feel comfortable or uneasy? At peace or threatened?

If any of these questions elicit a negative response in you, spend some time understating why you feel that way and then work to bring healing into that area.

🔺Base Chakra Affirmation: ‘I am grounded. I am connected to my body. I feel safe and secure. I am grounded, stable, and standing on my own two feet. I nurture my body with healthy food, clean water, exercise, relaxation, and connection with nature. I am open to possibilities. I am grateful for all the challenges that helped me to grow and transform. I trust myself. I love life’. 🙏🏼❤️
