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?” 

According to the #Vedic calendar, today is #GuruPurnima, a #fullmoon day in July, which is dedicated to giving #gratitude to all the #Gurus (#teachers, #guides & #mentors) we meet on our path, including our own #Self.

#Everyone and #everything can be our teacher, if we are open to #learning.

#Life itself is our #greatest #teacher, giving us the #experiences and #challenges we need to #deepen our #awareness of life & ourselves and #evolve on our #personal #path.

✨ #HappyGuruPurnima ✨

I believe the ultimate source of #blessings is within us. A good #motivation and #honesty bring #self-confidence, which attracts the #trust and #respect of others. Therefore the real source of blessings is in our own #mind.

Self-Care Is Courageous 

The core of self-care is the courage to put yourself first. To thrive, create, and lead, you need to be able to see your wellbeing as the foundation to your work. No longer is self-care considered a luxury or selfish, rather a necessity to your success. Below you will find some tips to integrating mindfulness into your daily routine:

Befriend your morning. Establishing a morning ritual is a great way to ignite your energy and ground your thoughts before the day begins. Whether it’s fitness, a balanced meal, or mediation, doing something that brings you joy is a perfect way to ignite your energy, ground your thoughts, and reconnect with your intentions.

Recharge yourself. Staying attuned your energy levels is important because you can take note of when you need to rest. Taking breaks throughout your day is a great way to restore yourself, a simple 5-10-minute break every hour to stretch, walk, or make a cup of tea, can shift your perspective and empower productivity.

Set a daily intention. You have a power within you to cultivate, heal, access, and release.  Start each day with an honesty and focused mindset, ex: How can I bring more sacredness into my life today? Your actions have a direct connect with your energy field, so make decisions that align with the deep listening point within you, your gut.

Your breath is your magic. Every time you inhale and exhale you create more space within yourself. You develop an loving awareness that is rooted in the ebb and flow of your breathing. When you take a deep breath, you are reclaiming your divine sovereignty.
