Self Care Tips & Rituals
Using sage smudge sticks to clear any stale and negative energy that may have built up in the space is very effective.
Science is starting to get on board with this and studies are showing that burning sage releases negative ions (the good vibes) which neutralises the positive ions (the bad vibes) which is thought to be a cause of fatigue, stress, anxiety. This metaphysical study of energy is becoming more intelligent about the non-physical and physical world we live in and as our homes become even more populated with technology, wireless products, robotic and smart tools, we need to find ways of effectively neutralising the build up of these positive ions in our lives.
Top Tip - have the windows and doors open to allow the negative energy to go out. This will give you a blank canvas to reset your environment for positivity, balance and harmony.
Safety First - 1) use a suitable container for saging such as metal, glass, ceramic, abalone shells 2) Don’t create a flame, its the light smoke you want.
Are you ready for spring? I know I am. Its a great time to clear, cleanse, declutter and recharge your personal energy and also the energy within your physical environment. Let the flow of positive energy bring in new opportunities and uplevel your own wellbeing.
Less is more, declutter and make space for the new.
To clear the energetic and physical pathways within your life and home, one of the first steps is to get rid of anything that no longer serves a purpose in your life or makes you feel good. You may need to be bold and brave to do this with some items but over attachment to ‘things’ is a mindset which you can change. Wherever possible, do offer any items to local charities who welcome most donations. This cleansing process sets an energetic intention that you are making space for positivity and an abundance of prosperity to come into all areas of your life.
It’s then time to open the windows and doors of our homes and let in fresh new energy. Also brighten your home with fresh flowers that uplift the energetic vibration. Top Feng Shui benefits of having fresh Flowers in your home are
1. uplifts mood
2. boosts positive chi flow
3. promotes relaxation
4. Improves home decor
5. aids creativity
Always discard flowers once they no longer look vibrant.
Own less, organise more and use often
Being grounded is to feel connected to the here and now. You feel strong, centred and in control. When you are not grounded you may feel light headed, emotional and almost out of your own body. You can also absorb other peoples negativity or emotions and be easily impacted by the environment around you. The root chakra is connected to feeling grounded as it is the closest chakra to physical earth. When unbalanced, it means we may feel threatened by others, in survival mode, fearful, anxious, anger and not in control. There are many techniques that can help you get grounded.
2) Visualise all negativity flowing away and behind you.
3) Begin to see an energetic connection from the bottom of your feet down to the earth’s core and really feel this connection between the base chakra at the base of your spine connecting to the earth.
4) Continue to breath deeply.
5) To close, once again place yourself in protective white light and open your eyes whenever you feel ready.
