Self-Compassion

Compassion for Self and others can be felt through understanding, respect, and love regardless of any conditions and we must cultivate compassion in order to grow out of suffering.
Having compassion for ourselves means that when shit hits the fan and the lights dim a bit low, we stand behind our darkness and walk with it towards the light because we know how capable and worthy we are. It means that instead of criticizing who we are when we aren't existing at our highest standards, we understand where we are and move forward with mindful self-respect. And damn can that power to really befriend ourselves in a "all for one and one for all" kind of way completely change our lives! 🙏
I've recently dug deep enough to find a huge void I've been covering for so long. I realized I have had little to no self-love and self-respect, and here this whole time I thought I had at least a normal amount. Then again, that's how the spiral of life works, right?
So I've been sitting in a hole, allowing myself to love who I am no matter how deep I go. I'm not trying to crawl or climb myself out of it, I'm just trying to find the power to transcend and heal from it. Instead of abandoning ship, I'm sitting down and planting seeds, nurturing them with every yoga sequence, Ayurvedic drink, and "She Brings Me Love" by Bad Company replay. Finally facing myself in this void has been so personally fulfilling and I can already begin to see the ripple effect – how beautiful it all is 🙌
How often do you show yourself compassion? How do you bring yourself home? How can we all share more compassion with the world and ourselves? #allforone #oneforall #surrender #release #selflove #compassion #badcompany #darkside #breakthrough

Om Mani Padme Hum

Probably the most popular of the Sanskrit mantras, Om Mani Padme Hum clears the way to enlightenment and reflects the way of the Buddha.
Sanskrit is based upon the sounds/vibrations of the words, which have a bigger impact in the Universe than the meanings of the words (like the English language for example).
"Interestingly, each of the 6 syllables has certain Sanskrit meanings that are important.

These oppose certain internal forces that cause suffering.

Om (ohm)- Om is the sound or “vibration” of the universe. This sound is the most important of all; but in the context of chanting and mantras, it is meant destroy attachments to ego and establish generosity.

Ma (mah)- Removes the attachment to jealousy and establishes ethics.

Ni (nee)- Removes the attachment to desire and establishes patience.

Pad (pahd)- Removes the attachment to prejudice and establishes perseverance.

Me (meh)- Removes the attachment to possessiveness and establishes concentration.

Hum (hum)- Removes the attachment to hatred and establishes wisdom.

'So in this way recitation of the mantra helps achieve perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The path of these six perfections is the path walked by all the Buddhas of the three times. What could then be more meaningful than to say the mantra and accomplish the six perfections?' – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones." > Matt Caron, Sivana Spirit
Repeating this mantra will truly transform your life at a cellular/vibrational level. Try to recite it as often as you remember (either with prayer/mala beads or randomly), add it to your yoga or meditation practice, or listen to YouTube videos playing the mantra with music 🦋✨

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree essential oil has SO many daily uses that can replace any antibacterial chemical cleaners and enhance any body cleansing products you already use, plus it can help bring more health and wellness into your life.
Mix about 15-20 drops with water in a spray bottle to clean your kitchen and bathroom with an effective product that doesn't fume you out of the room (feel free to add more cleansing oils like lemon, orange, or sage).
You can also add a few drops to your shampoo or body wash to bring a deep level of cleansing and clarifying to your routine (helps with acne, dandruff, etc.).
Using it in a diffuser or adding a drop or two onto a warm, wet washcloth can help clear up colds and and sinus infections too!
Tea tree oil is hands down one of the best ways to benefit your day-to-day while ensuring a more natural life.

Free Crystal Healing

I’d never charge just to add some crystals into the experience, and until my guides mentioned it, I had never thought of offering them as a free add-on to any of my healing sessions. I absolutely love and respect crystals (especially because of their abilities to help us in so many ways), so I’m excited to introduce this new level of healing with me! To put it simply, crystals – like everything – are energy and energy vibrates at certain frequencies. They’re used every day in the fields of science, jewelry making, holistic healing, and more. They are able to help in their special ways because of the way they vibrate. When we keep them in our own energy (our bodies and auras), they can help inspire that vibration in us.

Below are some examples of crystals and how they can help from MindBodyGreen:

“Turquoise helps you heal.

Bloodstone gives you energy.

Smoky quartz helps you let go.

Rose quartz cultivates love.

Carnelian is good for creativity.

Quartz crystal works wonders in clearing the mind.

Celestite relieves stress.”

So, if you’re into crystals already or would like to try experiencing their healing energies, I would be honored to connect with you for some balance and wellness. 🙏✨ If you have any questions about crystals or how they can help you, feel free to contact me – I would love to chat and help you learn 🌞🌻

Himalayan Salt Lamps

Not only does Himalayan Salt have numerous nutritional values, but when warmed the healing properties amplify. Metaphysically, Himalayan Salt is grounding and balancing and it is known to improve the flow of your home while attracting abundance.
It’s perfect for every room in your home or office, so don’t feel like you over indulge purchasing a few! (Tip: Avoid costly prices at larger stores. You can easily find reasonable prices from other suppliers, and be sure to look around/support your local shops!) Here are some benefits: “1. Salt lamps are Natural Negative Ionizers: The heated salt crystal absorbs the water molecules from the ambient air and evaporates them, a process during which negative ions are released abundantly, creating a healthier, more balanced atmosphere.
2. Salt Lamps neutralize artificial electro-magnetic wavelengths produced by harmful electronic devices surrounding us that cause nervousness, insomnia and lack of concentration. They amplify the natural frequency of 8 to10 cycles per second in the human brain, which is the normal resonance synchronized with the resonant frequency of the planet’s electro-magnetic field (7.83 Hz or cycle per second) and stabilize alpha wave rhythms in our brain.
3. They are Natural Dehumidifiers: Salt is hygroscopic, naturally attracting moisture. It absorbs the excess humidity in any given room creating a dry environment, while killing bacteria and other microbes. Therefore, salt lamps help purify the ambient air, while eliminating bad odors in the process.
4. They beautify the surrounding as they create a relaxing atmosphere promoting stress reduction, better sleep and an overall sense of well being.” – in5d

Clean Water

I can never stress enough the important of clean water 💦Dasani, Aquafina, and every other bottled purified water is pretty much just tap water. I’m not sure about you, but I’ve heard all my life “Is your water good to drink?” and if it’s coming from the city it probably isn’t. 

I won’t bore you with stats on the chemicals purified water contains, I’ll just stress one thing: Why drink something manipulated so much when you could add something pure and natural to your body? ✨It’s an energetic bonus for your body to bless your water (and everything else you consume) with some good vibes, Reiki, etc.✨ #springwater #mountaintobody #natural #cleanwater #healthyliving #holistictip #organic #growtothetop #thedirtylotus

Breath

You know that feeling when you’re about to do something adventurous and time seems to slow down, you begin to notice the expansion of each breath, and you swear your heart’s beating through every cell in your body? It’s a moment of presence at its finest isn’t it?  

You ground yourself and start doing some breath work, deep breath in, cool breath out. And then you feel ready to jump, leap, climb, ride, conquer anything. You can center yourself with your breath even in the most crucial moments and you’ve notice the power it has every time you need it.  

Your body could use that cleansing and centering power every day, and it just starts with being aware of your breath. 

It can also be an additional tool in your journey. How you breathe can reflect what’s really going on inside. (Is your breath relaxed? Are you holding your breath?)

Becoming aware of yourself in different ways guarantees peace and love 💕✨
