Which Crystals Support Your Spring Detox

Yay it’s March and I’ve felt the urge to do a Spring detox.

I know – I’ve read all the pros and cons, yes the Liver and the Kidneys are what detox the body, and you don’t “need” to detox.  But I like to try these things and find out how “I” actually feel, rather than take anyones word for it.

Looking back, when I had just two children, I was a lot healthier and more active.  I juiced everyday, ate healthily and made banana and almond milk smoothies when I was hungry.  Two children later, and cooking balanced meals was way too much for me.  Some days all I could manage to make myself was super noodles with grated cheese on top!! 

Last year I had my first glass of red wine for years.  And I loved it.  Maybe a bit too much.  I got myself into a habit of drinking a couple of glasses every night that my husband was off work, and watching my favourite trashy TV programmes to unwind.  The exhaustion from sleepless nights with babies and young children, slowly became feeling knackered all the time with a Red Wine headache. Oops!!  

So, being an all or nothing type person, I decided to do Jason Vale’s 28 day Juice Challenge.  I’ve got a brilliant juicer already, so no big investment.  Buying the ingredients has been less than what we’ve been spending on food anyway.  

Making the juices first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach with children wanting sandwiches and toast (they never stop eating), to take them to the loo, find their favourite toy, solve a computer problem, look at what they’ve just made, has been a challenge I’ll admit. 

But later in the day when I’m feeling more balanced, it’s a cinch – I prepare the fruit and veg – and they juice them for me (they love it).  I have a few flasks and can prepare a couple ahead of time which makes the rest of the day easy.

I had one moment where I nearly jacked it all in, and ran down the hill to get some Fish and Chips, but my husband bravely convinced me not to.  It’s also hard not to eat stray crisps and uneaten slices of soggy Pizza left around by the children.  Some times I feel light headed and hungry, but I feel fine after the next juice.

Today is day 7, and overall I feel pretty good.  Yesterday I had an amazing day with the children.  I was more present, mindful of my thoughts and actions – less irritable and snappy, and had more energy.  I even managed to actually take in a few pages of a book when they’d gone to bed – normally I read the same line over and over again till I give up.  

I’m not missing wine or coffee, but I’d love a chunk of bread and butter dipped in a butternut squash soup right now.  I’m really looking forward to that when I’m done.

I’m hoping that this plan will help me feel healthier, more energetic and make better food choices – like I always used to.  

Crystals To Support Your Spring Detox

Did you know there are Crystals that encompass the energy of Spring and can support your Spring detox?

Green Moss Agate, Jade, Green Aventurine, Bloodstone, Peridot.

My favourites are 

Peridot –  this has a bouncy, happy energy – that reminds me of the Zesty-ness of a of a fresh ripe Lime.  It energises you and brings the Spring Sunshine into your life .  Michael Gienger writes Olivine (Peridot) has a strong detoxifying effect and stimulates the liver, it enhances the liver and gallbladder.  

Green Aventurine – the Ultimate Spring Stone. It brings you all the joyful, hope-filled, exciting feelings of Spring.  I love Naisha Ahsian’s words

“ Green Aventurine’s essence is that of a spring bursting forth after a long dark Winter”

Doesn’t that bring you just the most beautiful imagery?

Jade – has a friendly, playful energy- like that of the most popular boy in your School.  Being green it embodies all the essence of Spring- joy, luck, happiness, and abundance. 

Bloodstone- has quite a heavy grounding energy. But it helps you get moving and get things done. It is known as a great Purifier, both physically and energetically, it is strengthening and fortifying (Naisha Ahsian), and so a great accompaniment to your Spring detox.

Green Moss Agate – one of my favourites.  All the most beautiful shades of Green, it has a gently grounding energy, that helps you connect to Nature and being outside in our beautiful Earth. It has a peaceful, stabilising energy (Naisha Ahsian) that can bring you gentle support through any crazy “hangry” moments. 

I hope Spring brings you abundant joy and laughter.

Your Heart Chakra, and why you need to heal it.

Your Heart Chakra, and why you need to heal it. 

As Valentines Day approaches,  I’ve spent many happy hours creating jewellery using Heart Chakra stones.  I began to ponder why is love so important to us?

As a teenager and young adult I was desperate to find love.  The kind of love I was looking for was outside of me.  I wanted someone to tell me how gorgeous, perfect and amazing I was.    

Thank goodness I eventually met my Andy.  But although I’ve always felt loved by him, I craved compliments and reassurance from him.  I didn’t get them, he’s just not that sort of bloke.  The biggest compliment he ever paid me – after a lot of (drunken) begging on my part, was that I had very shiny hair.  We still laugh abut that!

It took me a while to mature a bit and accept this.  But eventually (and I’m a slow learner) I came to realise that love was a state of being that comes from within.  Until I started to love myself a bit more, I wasn’t going to stop being needy, and um slightly desperate.  

What is the Heart Chakra all about? 

Our Heart Chakra is our centre in the popular Seven Chakra System.  It connects Body, Mind and Spirit.  

The love that comes from the Heart Chakra, isn’t the passionate, dependant kind of love that comes within the Sacral Chakra. 

This love is all about connection, balance, wholeness and the joy that comes from this state of being. 

It is about relationships, but the love you feel when your Heart Chakra is balanced comes from within.  Love and acceptance for yourself (flaws and all) means you can truly, and unconditionally love others (flaws and all). 

Hurts like criticism, rejection, repressed emotions, and emotional abuse all deplete the Heart Chakra.  

We might find it hard to forgive, hold grudges, be jealous or judgemental. Or (like I was) we might be overly needy and crave acceptance from others.  Our emotions may be wild and unbalanced.

When your Heart Chakra is balanced, you feel deep inner peace, harmony and joy

So Which Crystals Balance Your Heart Chakra?

Heart Chakra Crystals are usually pink or green, but as it is approaching Valentine’s , I’m going to talk about the pink ones.   

Rose Quartz a translucent pale pink stone, known as the stone of Unconditional love combines a powerful heart healing energy, with a calm and soothing vibration.  It’s soft, gentle pink brings comfort and healing to wounds your heart has gathered.  It can release emotions and bring deep held memories to the surface for healing.  This clearing of energy opens you to receiving more love and kindness from yourself and others, bringing inner peace and fulfilment.

Rhodochrosite is a peachy-salmon pink with white and black banding.  It has a really lovely joyful energy that brings out your inner child, and your sense of childlike fun and playfulness.  It can help you recover and release any suppressed emotional wounds allowing you to become who you were meant to be. It is soothing and comforting, really excellent for stress and anxiety. It brings love, forgiveness, compassion and kindness.

Rhodonite is an opaque raspberry pink stone with black inclusions in it.  It has a grounding energy that helps bring love to our day to day activities.  It’s an excellent stone to bring comfort and grounding after an emotional shock or trauma. Rhodonite helps heal old emotional wounds, helping us to forgive, freeing us from those horrible thoughts that won’t go away. 

Pink Tourmaline is a beautiful bright translucent pink.  It brings trust in the power of love, opening the heart to give that love to the world (Sue Weaver and Katrina Raphael) . It helps you rediscover your joy and enthusiasm for life. 

Kunzite is a pale lavender pink stone that ranges from opaque to transparent.  It works very quickly to release emotional blocks and open your heart to a divine heavenly energy. It brings peace, balance, pure joy and self-love.

Watermelon Tourmaline is Tourmaline that has pink in the middle and a green rind around the outside. The green ray heals emotional wounds stored in your heart, and the pink inspires the love to flow inside and out (Raphael 1985). Watermelon Tourmaline vibrates with love, kindness and friendship.  It has a simply gorgeous soothing and calming energy.

Ruby is a deep reddish pink stone and a powerful and passionate stone. It helps overcome lethargy and brings a bit of oomph back, especially to your sex life.  As a vibrant Red Ray stone, it helps you to take action, get moving, and energises you.

Garnet is a stone of sexuality, creativity and attraction. They can help you “magnetise” a lover, a new job, or creative project. It enhances charisma, and gets things moving, with a sense of enjoyment and fun (Simmons 2007)

Strawberry Quartz is a gorgeous stone that brings you fun, bliss and joy.  It has a loving, soothing energy  that can teach you self-love, self-acceptance and self-nurturing.

 Morganite is a pale pink opaque to transparent stone that can speedily release old pain and sorrow, bringing a welcome sense of lightness.  Wearing it brings peace, joy and inner strength, and a connection to divine love.  It’s energy opens and clears the heart chakra, healing fear, resentment and anger. 

Pink Opal is a pale pink stone that helps us get over shyness, shame and inhibitions – helping the enjoyment of your sexuality  (Gienger).  It brings peace helping you release past trauma, tension and stress.  It helps you become more emotionally balanced and calm.

How To Smudge Your Home

How To Smudge Your Home

My wonderful Crystal Teacher Sue Weaver has shared with me her method for smudging her home.  

There are many ways to smudge yourself and your home. I don’t believe that there is a single ‘right way’, but I have my way and I’ll share that with you.

I begin with cleaning on the physical level – a good tidy, dust, sweep, spit and polish, and a good crystal cleanse. I like to do this with windows and door open, whenever possible, and it is good to keep them open while you smudge if you can.

I begin by setting a clear, strong intent to clear any energies that do not belong in my home. I start upstairs, in the corner of the bathroom. I move around the room, using the feather to wave the smoke into nooks and crannies, paying particular attention to corners, all the time focussing on clearing and cleansing.

I then move to my bedroom and repeat, to the other bedrooms and then down the stairs. I move through the rooms downstairs, ending at the door.

Having completed the smudging, I go round again with sweetgrass. This herb smells divine and brings blessings into your home. It does not burn like sage, and you have to be patient and persevere. I will need lighting several times, but it is really worth it. You can complete by lighting an incense stick or two, to fill your home with fragrance. Flowers aren’t included, but I always bring fresh flower into my home. A home without flowers feels incomplete.

8 Tips For Surviving Sleep Deprivation

8 tips for surviving sleep deprivation. 

Sleep deprivation is a killer.  You feel awful, look worse, have no patience, and it can drain the joy from your life.

I don’t think I’ve had a full nights sleep in over 9 years.  I had awful pregnancy insomnia with my firstborn – who is nearly 9 (eek where did that time go?!). 

I’ve co-slept with, and breastfed all my babies – my younger 3 all had lip ties which meant they could only feed laying down.  This meant they mostly fed at night.

030
Tiredness has not been kind to my looks lol!

So, I’ve 9 years practice in survival.

Here’s what gets me through.

1. Keeping hydrated.  I know, it’s a bit boring.  But being dehydrated makes you feel dizzy, lightheaded and weak.  Drinking plenty really helps.  Have a bottle of water you can carry around to remind you. 

2. Micro-sleeps.  Sometimes, even with 4 young children there are moments of calm.  Yes they are rare, but they happen.  Use them!   My children do not like seeing me asleep.  But, if they’re all busy, I can put a blanket over my face  -they don’t notice that for some reason, and catch a few zzzzzs.  Note- I baby proofed my home long ago – always do that first.

3. Have a shower.  Water is so restorative.  Showers are full of negative ions, which have been found to help fatigue. Plus, it feels good to be clean. Have a lovely zingy aromatherapy shower gel to uplift you even more.

4. Drop your standards.  If you’re too tired to tidy up, then don’t.  And be kind to yourself.  Your mental well being is far more important than a tidy house.  If you can’t bear to sit in the mess, get a big broom, sweep everything into a corner and cover it up with a rug. This isn’t forever.

5. If you have the energy- get outside.  Even if it’s just in your garden, or your back door step.  Take ten deep breaths.  Notice how good breathing deeply feels.  It will also energise you.

6. If you’ve got friends and family, then invite them round.  Nothing passes the time better than good company.  Can they come over and help you get out the house, to the park, the woods, a cafe?

7. Food.  Sleep deprivation makes you hungry.  Try and remember to eat regularly.  If you forget, then your body will crave the most energy high food possible- for me this was cake.  I love cake (and would never say don’t eat cake!) but I ate too much, and in the long term this isn’t healthy.  

8. Crystals – my favourite Crystals for energising me are 

Citrine– it’s golden ray naturally uplifts and boosts your energy and mood, 

Green Aventurine– has a happy, optimistic feel good energy, 

 Carnelian– gives you the motivation to get up and moving , 

Amethyst– has a mind calming energy- really helpful for that “wired” feeling, 

Red Jasper – has a real physically supportive energy, strong and supportive, 

Garnet– a really excellent Root Chakra stone that stimulates and regenerates your physical body, 

Baltic Amber and it’s sunshine energy will always make you feel better. 

I hope some of these ideas help you.  You will get through the day, you always have, just like I did.

Rhodochrosite Love Series #3

Rhodochrosite

I first came across Rhodochrosite in Argentina, when I was looking for a charm for a bracelet I was making for my mum.  Each country I travelled to, I collected a charm for her as a present for when I returned home.  I found it carved as a little heart shaped charm, and fell in love with it’s delicate corally pink colour.   It’s name comes from the Greek for “Rose Coloured”.  It’s just beautiful.

 

Rhodochrosite
Rhodochrosite

Rhodochrosite has a gorgeously joyful, mood lifting energy that helps you think positively about life.  So, if you’re feeling a bit flat, and down in the dumps, try taking some outside and feel how your energy changes.

I love to work with it for emotionally healing my inner child.  I’ve got a photo of myself at my most miserable and hurting age, and I’ve surrounded it with love stones- including Rhodochrosite.  Each time I look at the photo I mentally send this younger me love and reassurance.

Robert Simmons, in the  “Book of Stones” states

It soothes the heart and comforts the soul, helping one claim one’s rightful powers and be everything on was meant to be.  It vibrates to the frequencies of inner peace and self-forgiveness, allowing one to fully blossom”

Working with Rhodochrosite might bring up difficult memories to the surface, but it’s gentle loving energy will help you heal and release these.  Notice anything that comes up,  send yourself (at the age you were when it happened) love.  Visualise Angels taking the situation and healing it.  If you know how to do EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), this is an excellent way to help you release emotions around difficult memories.  Look up Gary Craig on youtube as a fantastic resource.

Rhodochrosite can also help you to discover any hidden talents or repressed creative streaks.  And if you’ve forgotten how to play, try wearing or carrying it around for a week.   Make a conscious effort to play with your children (Playful Parenting by Laurence Cohen is a great book for ideas for this).  If you haven’t any children borrow a friend’s (most of us would jump at the chance to have someone play with their child for an hour!!).  Buy one of your favourite childhood toys from E-Bay .  See how your play becomes more easy and natural, and you start actually having fun. This will be so healing for both you and your child.

 

As always, I love chatting from you on my Facebook page.  I love to see your crystals- so show me your Rhodochrosite if you have any!!

Much Love and Crystal Blessings

Love Stones Series #1 Watermelon Tourmaline

Hello fellow Crystal Lover

We all need heart healing.  We all have wounds, buried deep down, or perhaps rawer and nearer the surface.  Working with crystals is a powerful way to begin to heal our emotional and spiritual pain.

To love and to feel loved has to be the most wonderful, warming and magical part of being human.

I thought it would be fun to write a mini series about Love Crystals for you.

Watermelon Tourmaline

A really special and outrageously beautiful love Crystal is Watermelon Tourmaline.

Depositphotos_2077156_m-2015
Watermelon Tourmaline

Watermelon Tourmaline is Tourmaline that has pink in the middle and a green rind around the outside.

This is the perfect colour combo for activating, clearing and soothing the heart chakra.

The green ray heals emotional wounds stored in your heart, and the pink inspires the love to flow inside and out (Raphael 1985)

Watermelon Tourmaline vibrates with love, kindness and friendship.

It has a simply gorgeous calming energy that helps enhance patience (always useful for those of us with toddlers, or any family member really).

It’s pretty hard to get hold of, my one is itsy bitsy, but at least its portable and easy to hold.

Try holding or wearing it,  it will help you to take a deep and nourishing breath and easily find your heart centre. This connects you to the feeling of internal happiness and joy, no matter what’s going on around you!!

As always, I would LOVE to hear how you get on with it, if you’re lucky enough to have one at home, please show me a photo on my Facebook page!!

Protect Your Energy This Christmas

Mousehole Christmas Lights Cornwall

 

Well there’s no denying the Christmas/ holiday season is here now.

It’s that special time of year when we get together with our much loved families, swap presents… and get treated like we are children again.

Maybe you are lucky and get on great with all your family.

Or maybe you’re dreading being bombarded with unwanted advice about what your children eat, their behaviour, whether or not they sleep, their hairstyle, or even your marriage.

Defending yourself, being upset and arguing drains your energy for a long time after it’s all over.

I have learnt over the years to create strict boundaries on what is up for discussion, and on my time and energy.

Even so, I still need a little extra help keeping myself sane.

Crystals are amazing at protecting your energy.

My faves for this are

1. Smokey Quartz. This protects us from negative energies by absorbing and grounding them into the earth.  In this way, it has the ability to dissolve negative energy and patterns in the auric field.  I especially love how Ahsian (2005) likens it to an “energetic composting device” that clears negative energies making them healthy and usable again.  Apparently, it was once worn by soldiers in battle – something to remember as you cling to it on your way to your in-law’s house.

2. Amethyst– it’s high frequency vibrations act like a storm barrier against low negative energy vibrations.  The colour Violet is one of purification – that can filter out impurities (Gerber 2001).
It helps maintain your body and energy field in a state of balance and well-being (Simmons 2005).
And as an added bonus it is beautifully  calming for when we are feeling at our most stressed and overwhelmed.

3. Black Tourmaline works by deflecting negative energies like a powerful crystal shield.
It’s really useful to have on you when entering negative environments (other’s homes that you feel nervous or uncomfortable in).
It helps protect you from negative influence (or criticism and judgement).
It  eases stress and emotional overload, and promotes serenity and inner peace (Gienger 2015).
It’s also really helpful at neutralising your own negative feelings such as insecurity, anger and jealousy. Simmons (2005) calls it an “etheric vacuum cleaner”, just imagine it hoovering up all your negativity.

IMGP0258

Carry these stones in a little drawstring bag, or wear them.

Focus on the stones and affirm “my energy is safe and protected, all is well”. Do this frequently.

Take time out when you need to, it’s totally OK to prioritise your own well being.
Go out for a walk, or hide in a bedroom and listen to a guided meditation.

Let me know how you get on!

With Love and Crystal Blessings

Fun- have you forgotten how to have it?

The first time I picked it up,

I felt an uncontrollable urge to giggle. Like the sort of giggling that used to get me sent out of the classroom at School.  I always was a bit inappropriate.  Funerals are the hardest for me – that sounds terrible doesn’t it?! But, it reminded me how to have fun. I used to have such a laugh, one of the main reasons I chose to be a Nurse was because Nurses were fun (my mum was a nurse, and I’d worked in Nursing Homes since I was 12).

 

I’ve got myself a bit bogged down with seriousness over the past few years.  No more crazy nights out with my friends, no silly dancing or singing (badly), I’ve not even found anything that funny on TV.

 

It crept up on me, without me noticing. So, properly  attuning to Citrine was a bit of a revelation. That’s what has been missing in my otherwise happy and generally lovely life.  A sense of fun and laughter.  Kind of a big thing though…..

 

Last week, I wore Citrine everyday. I’ve been designing a stone pouch that you can change the crystals in, so you don’t need to tuck them in your bra. It’s not quite ready for others yet, a few more tweaks are needed.

 

 

IMGP0191
Use Citrine to bring fun back

I kept my citrine tumblestone in it all week.  I noticed that I had loads more energy than usual. I even hoovered up one day (I did feel like collapsing afterwards though).  I’ve had chronic tiredness for just over 3 years now, so anything physical like that is a big effort for me.

 

I felt like a bit of a super-mum, we painted, made halloween costumes and decorations, went on days out . Baked,  (made a lot of a mess-which I cleaned up!),  jumped on the trampoline, and had a wet grass fight.  All things I do anyway, but I did it joyfully and voluntarily, and bloody enjoyed myself too!

2015-11-07 17.39.23
Having fun at home.

I didn’t sleep too well though.  One thing I would suggest when working with Citrine, is keep it away from your bed.  Try switching it for an Amethyst for a restful nights sleep.

 

Citrine has a sun like energy. It’s warming, comforting, energising and life giving (Raphael 1985). It helps to lighten dark thoughts, bringing optimism, playfulness and happiness into your energy system (Ahsian 2005). It really is ideal for the dreary Winter Months, to bring some golden light, and a bit of cheer and fun into your life.

 

 

 

Tree in a fog.Apple tree with fallen down leaves

 

Citrine, as a Solar Plexus chakra stone, is also known as an abundance stone,  it can help you decide what you really want, so you can work out how to actually achieve this. Carrying citrine in your purse is believed to bring wealth and abundance (Permutt 2008)- always worth a try!!

 

 

Depositphotos_8293187_m-2015yes please chase me Mr money man!

 

So, give it a go!  Carry a Citrine around with you for a week, and let me know how you get on! With much love and Crystal Blessings Iris_Bluebirdadjust1 (1)

Send Love To Your Inner Child

I’ve been really drawn to working with pink crystals recently.  I don’t/ just can’t wear pink clothes, they look hideous on me, but crystals and jewellery, well thats different.

The energy of Pink is so soothing and loving, tranquil and healing.  

I’m extremely lucky to be surrounded by love in my life, I am eternally thankful for this.  

However there is a sad and unloved part of me, that I need to send some serious love energy to to help me progress on my journey.

Anytime I am angry, or upset, or feel I’ve been wronged in some way, this part of me comes to the surface.  

It’s my inner child- or teenager to be more precise. It responds in a childlike/teenager (read sulky and stroppy) like way to certain triggers, like feeling abandoned or unsupported. 

How about you? Do you sometimes find yourself acting in a seemingly irrational way, a way that you seem to have no control over?

Or does the same upsetting thing keep happening to you in different ways?

 Any emotional wounds you received as a child are stored in your energy field, and can come up again and again until they’re healed. 

So, how can we heal and release these stuck emotions?

A really lovely and easy way to do this is:

1. Find a photo of yourself as a child (I’ve one of myself as a young teenager), and put it in a pretty frame

2. Find some pink or green crystals and place them around it (crystals will help amplify your healing intentions and pink and green ones resonate with the heart chakra)

3. Display it somewhere you will see it.

4. Everyday, send your younger self loving thoughts and energy. Tell yourself that you are safe and loved, and everything will be ok. Try  imagining yourself hugging your younger self.

 

This will send your younger self the message that you are loved and supported, and you will feel the positive healing effects in the here and now. 
 

I’ve surrounded mine with Rose Quartz and Rhodochrosite. 

Rose Quartz is the stone of “unconditional love” .  It opens the heart chakra, where your emotional experiences are stored, bringing inner nourishment and comfort.  

It teaches the source of love comes from within, and from that source any wound can be healed ( Raphaell 2005)  

Rhodochrosite is a powerful heart healer, it helps bring any pain and wounds you may have experienced to the surface, to recover, relive and release (Simmons 2005).

Rhodochrosite works vibrationally to support self-healing,  (Simmons 2005). It’s a great ally in healing your inner-child, letting you to recover your sense of playfulness and joy and become the person you were born to be.

Here’s mine, show me yours <

I’ve recently read a super in-depth scientific study on Hazelwood that  can be downloaded here

027 (960x638)

It is suggested to wear your Hazelwood jewellery as much as possible.   Hazelwood has a finite lifespan of 5-6 months after which the inner wood will turn from white to black.   Hazelwood necklaces should be removed when swimming.
