Crystal Herbalism – Self Care

The self is sacred. A being that bleeds color and breathes in the world around it. The self is a collector of light, giving shadows new meaning, art. The self feels the experiences like a river does to a rock, all at once.

Rose Quartz is a heart chakra crystal that embodies femininity, divinity, and compassion. 

The heart chakra is the center to your wellbeing the pathway between your lower and upper chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar, HEART, Throat, Third Eye, Crown. By cleansing your heart, you are able to find more emotional balance and clarity. I like to think of the heart as the place where the soul resides. When someone asks for you, you tend to point towards the center of your chest in response, “Who Me?” 

I am a WITCH 🌕

I do not say that for an aesthetic, trend, or because it’s autumn, no, I say it with a heavy pride. When I call myself a WITCH I bow my head to my ancestors, the people killed who proclaimed it or we rumored to. I honor the WITCHES who came before me because I am the granddaughter of one you could not burn.

Crystal Herbalism  – Full Moon in Taurus

This cosmic energy is sensual, grounded, and emotionally clearing. Embodying in the element earth, this moon nourishes our roots, reconnecting us to our desires. Flow with this lunar tide by meditating, warming the body with yoga, and spending some time in nature. 

Full Moon Bath Ritual

  • 2 drops lavender oil
  • 2 drops rose oil
  • 1 rose quartz 
  • 1 aquamarine
  • 1 moonstone
  • white candle

Smudge the space as the water begins to collect, place the crystals in the tub and allow their energy to charge the water. Add the oils, pouring your intentions into the water with every drop. Light the candle and place it next to the tub, allowing the flames light to cascade over your body. When the water is ready, take a step into the tub, whispering your full moon intentions as you submerge yourself in its calming warmth. 

Play relaxing sounds while you are in the tub, meditating and asking goddess to send you any messages as you soak. Once you are done with the bath, journal what came up for you. Blow out the candle as you thank the divine for their guidance.

There is a Japanese art called Kintsugi, where broken objects are put back together using lacquer mixed with powdered gold. This practice of golden rejoining brings beauty to imperfection, the pieces are alchemized into a flourishing masterpiece.

It has taken years to find the beauty in my past, but now that I see the golden light within my shadow, I am able to feel whole. During my journey I have sounds sanctuary in the loving energy of Rose Quartz. It has been a compassionate and empowering vibration, a divine beacon.

What would happen if you listened to your body, every moment of everyday?

This is an important question to ask yourself, especially with the new year arriving. It’s not to say that you don’t already listen to your body but rather bringing an awareness to the fact that you can deepen your practice.

Our bodies are constantly shifting and evolving with each action we take and thought we create. Our emotions tend to be the driving force on how our bodies react to situations, entailing waves of ups, downs, and moments of calm. Like an ocean we ebb and flow, keeping track of any storms brewing within.

Listening to the body is an intuitive practice, and act of self-awareness. There is a magick to knowing when to tend to your self, an ancient vibe of nurturing. It’ our sixth sense, something that gives us a light to dive inward.

There is a beauty in knowing your body, an art of true honest devotion. When we think of our bodies as our home, temple, and sacred ground, we find ourselves pausing, kneeling to pray and listen. It is with that divine notion, that we awaken, we become rooted in the fluidity of what our body needs.

Listening to the body can be described as either spiritual or primal, but at the end of the day its always individual.

With the growth that we are constantly manifesting, there is rest that must follow. And with that acknowledgment we grasp to the needed selfishness. Courage is the core to self-care, it take a strong person to have a heart-to-heart with themselves. Because when you take the time to observe your emotions you obtain the truth.
