Healing Energy

Healing Energy

You may have read in some press articles that when I’m asked what’s in my handbag, along with my KORA Organics mist, lip balm, hand cream, phone, wallet and affirmation cards, I often mention a crystal wand or a Rose Quartz crystal.

My crystal wand is incredibly special to me, and is one of my most cherished items. It’s made of Clear Quartz and is studded with Rose Quartz. Clear Quartz is a great stone for gathering, directing and transmitting energy… it can also transform negative energy into positive energy, and Rose Quartz is a wonderful stone to heal and protect the heart, balance emotions, release stress and tension, and encourage love and self-esteem.

Crystals can be used in many different methods of healing. In addition to using on a specific area of the body, or on Chakras points to locate blockages to cleanse and heal them, they can also be used in massage.

Massaging the body with a crystal helps to release tension from the body, while at the same time the stone’s healing energy is transferred to the body. I hold my crystal during meditation, prayer, deep belly breathing, and use it to infuse my Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil with positive vibrations prior to a massage. I also sleep with it near by so I’m constantly receiving its special healing energies.

This month we are giving you a gift of a heart-shaped Rose Quartz crystal with any purchase of our Rose products (Balancing Rose Mist, Luxurious Rosehip Oil or Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil). Carry it with you to benefit from its positive energies and high vibration of love.

Enjoy,

Balance

Balance

When I’m asked what area in my life is a continual focus it often circles back to balance.

Balance is the equilibrium between the body, mind and spirit, family, relationships, work and play… maintaining balance in all areas of your life is essential for your wellbeing, happiness and productivity.

It’s easy for anyone to get caught up in the demands and chaos of everyday life, but there are simple steps you can take (and you can control), to regain greater balance so you’re functioning at your optimum and at the same time living in a more synchronised and harmonious manner. You’re also then more able to focus your attention and energy on attaining your goals, and moving forward in a meaningful way.

These are some of the adjustments you can make to bring balance back to your life.

Say no

I often felt compelled to take on all that was thrown at me even when my schedule was crazy and out of control, but now I’ve realised it’s just not possible to do everything and maintain a healthy balance, so unless it’s essential or adds value, I pass on it. People end up respecting you more for setting boundaries and being true to yourself, so don’t feel compelled to always say yes. It may even leave a door open for a more fulfilling opportunity!

Disconnect

Turn your TV and computer off, put down your phone and be present when you finish work for the day. Give yourself and your mind a rest and spend quality time connecting with family and friends. It’s amazing how free you can feel when you release yourself from technology.

Laughter

As the old saying goes, laughter is the best medicine. Allow yourself moments to indulge in your inner child… I love nothing more than a belly laugh with my family and friends, it’s incredibly reenergising.

Health is wealth

If you can’t find an hour, set aside 15 minutes for some form of exercise each day – even if it’s just a brisk walk in the fresh air. Your body will release endorphins that naturally help manage stress and clear your mind.

Sleep

Your body needs to rest and recover. Sleep is a time when your body repairs itself on a cellular level. Each evening I spray my pillow with Calming Lavender Mist, put on an eye mask and listen to an evening meditation… this little ritual helps me unwind and drift into a deep beneficial sleep.

Mindfulness

The benefits of meditation and deep belly breathing are endless, even 5 – 10 minutes is enough to recentre and refocus, and it can transform a challenging day into a rewarding one. I try to meditate at different intervals throughout the day, and I also start my day with the practice of positive affirmation and prayer.

Reward yourself

Treat yourself often. It may be as simple as a glass of wine after a long day, a cup of your favourite tea, buying yourself a bunch of flowers, lighting a scented candle and taking a bath, applying a facemask, or a pedicure or massage on your day off. It’s important to reward yourself and acknowledge your achievements.

Remove toxins, clutter and negativity

This goes for everything from people to products. Remove toxic influences… try to avoid negative people (if you can) and surround yourself with those who have positive, upbeat attitudes. Choose organic when and where possible including household products, skincare and food. Minimise the clutter around you, I often find if my environment is organised, my mind is naturally more organised.

Plan and prioritise

Try to plan and prepare for your day as much as possible, this will allow you to ensure you aren’t over committing yourself and you can prioritize anything that is essential or important. I like to look at my weekly schedule on the Friday morning before so I can make any necessary changes, this allows me to more fully enjoy the weekend, as I know my week ahead is achievable.

I’d love to hear what you do to maintain balance.

Much love,

The Power of Pink

I like to carry a small Rose Quartz crystal with me in my handbag. Rose Quartz is a pink coloured crystal believed to have heart-healing properties. It encourages healthy self-love, and can bestow compassion, forgiveness and acceptance. Rose Quartz is also soothing, calming and reduces stress and tension.

Did you know that we have added the unique vibrations of Rose Quartz to all our KORA Organics products. The filtered water in the KORA Organics products is infused with the energy of the Rose Quartz crystal, so that vibration of love and intent flows through the crystals, into the products and onto you!
