Conscious Parenting

The Happy Mother

I saw this quote earlier this morning on Facebook and it made me realize just how much my motherhood journey has pushed me to grow – but also how long it took me as a mother before I realised just how important a role my own happiness and wellbeing was to both my being a parent, as well as to the happiness and well being of my daughter. Being a happy mother over a perfect one was something that only came to me much, much later in the game…

There’s something about the way our kids know, without us having to say a word, when something’s going on with us – whether we’ve had a day from from hell, are holding back tears, or are so stretched and stressed that the smallest thing sets us off… regardless of how well we think we’re hiding it.

They don’t need our words to know. They can feel our energy.

And it influences the way they act and feel too. Don’t believe me?

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.

🌿Do you have a self-love ritual that you take time for? 🌿

Affirmations for Self-Healing; Giving and Receiving.

self-healing affirmations

Happy Monday Beautiful Souls!

We haven’t done an affirmation for self-healing in a while, and what better way to start our week off than with a little self-love and personal development!

This week, let’s think about the topic of ‘giving’. How many of you truly appreciate the joy of giving, and what it means to give? Are you a giver, or do you prefer to receive?

And I don’t just mean the material act of giving. Do you give yourself authentically to others – your time, your words, your patience, your love? What does the word “give” mean to you? Many of us don’t believe we are worthy of receiving, so we prefer to give, and visa verca.
I want you to know today that you are worthy? You are worthy and deserving of feeling the pure joy and love that goes into giving and receiving – but in order to receive, we must learn to give 🙏🏼💕

To give can be make us feel incredibly vulnerable, and then expectant on the opposite scale. By understanding that giving is not a privilege or a reward, but a natural act of loving, and being loved in return. 💗 Our #affirmations for Self-Healing: “Today I will learn to give. I will realise that giving is part of the cycle of giving and receiving, the cycle of change. Today I will nourish someone with light”. This affirmation is about communication, make this your practice for today, feel an impulse of loving awareness and then gift it. Send that impulse of love to a person in need, a person you already love or all the people in the world, and then, let it go. Take pleasure in the simple, honest act of giving, whether it’s sharing your smile with a stranger or a small token of your appreciation for a loved one. ~ Namaste, Kerry. Xxx

If this is a topic that you struggle with, or if you’d simply like to bring more love and openness into this area of your life, say the following affirmation: “Today I will learn to give. I will realise that giving is part of the cycle of giving and receiving, the cycle of change. Today I will nourish someone with light”.

This affirmation is about communication, make this your practice for today, feel an impulse of loving awareness and then gift it.

Debunking Tarot Myths

tarot_not evil_wherehumrests

Hey, Guys! Today I want to talk about a topic that comes up quite often when discussing Tarot.
Some of the cards in a traditional Tarot deck, particularly the three depicted above, are often perceived as “evil”, “dark”, and even “sinister”… it’s no wonder people still hold such a negative opinion of the Tarot.

Well, to be brutally honest here, there is absolutely NOTHING evil about these cards or the Tarot in its entirety. IN FACT, these cards represent change, opportunities to rebuild, and the temptations that we find ourselves facing!

So, if they’re not evil, what are they then? 💁🏻 From a Holistic perspective;
~ THE TOWER represents the need or opportunity to rebuild, our foundation remains strong but what lies ahead of you is the chance to construct something better.
~ DEATH represent the ending of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. Simply put, Death implies a change – this change could be implied for a situation, a perspective or opinion, emotional changes or physical healing.
~ THE DEVIL represents the conflicts and temptations that we face on our journeys that may create hurdles or detours for us along the way.
~ THE HANGED MAN (not included in the above image) represents the need to take on a new perspective, or from taking on a new perspective a sense of enlightenment has been achieved. This card also represents us abandoning our ego and embracing our connection with our Higher Self and Source energy! 🙏

It is my personal opinion that when these cards appear in a spread, they come as a solution, an opportunity to overcome whatever undesirable solution we may find ourselves in – but as a reminder of Universal Guidance that with all our struggles in life, something even better is waiting on the horizon! ✨🙌

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. 🙌🌿☀️💖

Strength: Forgiving those who aren’t sorry.

strength-forgiveness-wherehumrestsHappy Sunday Lovelies! I recently had a conversation with a client about emotional strength and releasing feelings of hurt, resentment, and anger towards those who have wronged us. It’s something that personally was a HUGE step in my self-healing and self-empowerment journey, and something I want to share with all of you!

✨ At some stage in our life, someone close to us is going to let us down, wrong us, disappoint us and even hurt us, and a lot of us find it very hard to move forward from that. Yes, we may “get over it” but we rarely ever truly forgive them of that wrong doing.

By keeping this type resentment inside us only breeds further negative emotions (that we may not even be consciously aware of) that manifest into tension, physical discomfort and illness, and even additional difficult situation (that then lead to more anger and hurt and frustration)… a vicious cycle right? What if I told you that you can put a stop to that, right now??

Many of us believe that in order to forgive someone, and move on from a situation, we need to have those uncomfortable conversations with them! NOT TRUE! If you’d like to learn how to;
~ change your mind set
~ empower yourself
~ learn how to effectively release hurt
and self-heal so that you can live a happy, balanced life comment below or get in touch with me me. ⭐️

Through divine messages and information received from your guides and spiritual support system, the Angels and the crystal Guardians I am able to assess your current situation, your current energetic state and identify crystals that will aid you through your healing.
This will take all the guess work out and give you EXACTLY what your physical, emotional, mental and energetic body needs to get you through. 💕🌿✨

~ Grounded and sane “Frazzle-Free” Toolkit ~

I have had such a busy momma admin day today! My daughter’s ballet exam is coming up and I’ve been rushing around making sure she has everything she needs for it. Not to mention it’s Monday, which is always an admin day for me, but we generally have late starts on a Monday (i.e. we’re usually late). I find people to be a little more aggressive on the roads on Mondays. I’ve never really understood why people get so upset and angered in traffic but this usually leaves me feeling slightly frazzled by the time I get to my final destination! Anyone else have this experience?? Whether you’re a mom or not, simple things like traffic, running late, deadlines, etc. can get you feeling stressed and frazzled too.

I thought I would share one of the most valuable things that I do for myself on a daily basis, especially when I know I have a busy day ahead of me, and that is making sure that I am grounded. This kit keeps me focused on what I need to do, helps me manage the little stresses that come with being a mom, and in check with myself and my surroundings. It’s particularly useful when I’m feeling frazzled…

If you’re not sure what it means to be grounded, simply put it means that you are present in your body and connected with the earth, allowing you to feel centered and balanced no matter what is going on around you.  If you are feeling overwhelmed by everything, misplace items (like car keys) often, keep forgetting appointments and talks, have a million things going through your head and struggle to focus on any of them or feeling like you are putting in so much but achieving very little ~ chances are you are not grounded.

IMG_3490

I call this toolkit my Frazzle-Free toolkit, associated with the Root Chakra, it keeps me grounded and balanced every day, regardless of what I have to do. In the morning before I start my day I will sit quietly (you can also do this lying down if you prefer), barefoot, with my black tourmaline chunk between my feet, my Patchouli EO uncapped and my smokey quartz in my hands. I close my eyes and concentrate on breathing deeply and releasing any tension, irritation, anxiety, etc in my mind and body, and do a simple grounding exercise. My feet get super tingly and heavy when I do this, that’s when I know it’s working 🙂

If I’ve had a particularly hectic day, I repeat this little exercise in the evening before going to bed.  When I am feeling uber frazzled, I will rub a couple drops of oil on the soles of my feet (dilute with a carrier oil if you have sensitive skin).
~ Smokey Quartz is one of my favourite grounding stones as it acts like a negative energy filter, sucking in all the negative vibes and releases the purified, positive energy.
~Black Tourmaline is a fab grounding and protection stone, repelling and blocking negative vibes. (A great one for blocking against psychic attacks).
~ Patchouli EO has a really earthy aroma, using aromatically provides a grounding, balancing effect on our emotions. You can use any essential oil that is woody and earthy, like White Fir, Frankincense, Cinnamon and Doterra’s Balance blend, the Patchouli is just my personal pick!

In addition to this, I like to keep some beautiful clear quartz and citrine tumblies in a pouch in my pocket as I run around, and I never leave the house without my smokey quartz and black tourmaline bracelet. The citrine and clear quartz keep my energy levels up and my vibes high!! 🙂

This kit falls part of my daily self-care routine, without fail. By introducing this simple toolkit into your daily routine, you are allowing yourself to release negative energy and connected to the earth. Heck, it’s so simple you can do it sitting in your car. You will begin to feel more content with the daily notions of your everyday life. Not only will this benefit how you feel throughout the day, but it will improve how you think and how you function. Your mood will be uplifted and others around you (kids / friends / family / colleagues) will benefit from your state of calm happiness. 🙂 If you are currently experiencing a difficult situation or emotion and would like me to recommend a personalized toolkit for you, email me at kerry@wherehumrests.com. I would be more than happy to help!

Each of the stones I have mentioned in today’s post have their own energetic vibration (some stronger than others). I encourage you to work with them and discover what each brings to you and how they uniquely interact with your energetic field. You can find any of the oils I mentioned under the shop tab on the menu. If you order your essential oils through my link, you will also get my one-on-one support in your wellness journey.
