Herbal Tea Ritual & Channeled Blends to Unwind

Tea Ritual & Channeled Blends to Unwind When I debuted my studio (the metaphysical boutique, as I like to call it) I wanted to offer a rich and enriching experience. Part of that formula was to provide comfy luxurious seating and organic herbal tea. I felt that if the environment was to be conducive to learning and meditation, then guests needed to be comfortable. The space needed to allow people to unwind and feel safe to dive deep within. Many of us live very busy lives, often causing us to neglect ourselves and our personal needs. There is a sense that we need to be “on” all the time, just to keep up. Between social media, kids activities, work and financial pressures, carving out some spare time to just “be” can be a daunting task. I have found that little rituals can create space for being without adding any more pressure to the mix. Consciously preparing and sipping tea takes much less time and effort than journaling or repeating affirmations, while still having profound effects. My curated herbal tea blends are formulated with an intention to create that quiet space, to invite positive energies and experiences into your life. Having …

The Pitfalls of Spiritual Awakening

The Pitfalls of Spiritual Awakening Many people are becoming aware that there is more to life than we know and can see. A lot of them are starting to feel unfulfilled by the reality that has been created and presented to them. The career, status, and white picket fence don’t seem to bring the joy they thought it would. Many people are starting to realize that something is missing and they are starting to look within themselves to find that missing piece. This is the start of the spiritual awakening process. When people start to feel the peace that comes from within they usually want more and so they seek answers and ways to reach that state on a more consistent basis. There is a lot of information out there about awakening, but I find many of them are unsafe. I don’t talk about kundalini awakening, crystalline structure, 5D reality and whatever else elusive and intangible concepts are out there. Why? Because it’s tempting to grasp to concepts that feel good, but in reality, that is often a way of spiritually bypassing what is really going on within ourselves. You can’t speed up spiritual awakening. And you if try too …

7 Myths about crystals and gemstones

7 Myths about crystals and gemstones People have different approaches and ideas when working with crystals and gemstones and that’s quite alright. However, there seem to be a few myths going on and I would like to bring light on some of them. This is coming from my own work with gemstones and personal experience working with stones. Others might have different experiences. Myth #1 – Full moonlight is the best way to cleanse and charge your crystals First of all, I don’t find it convenient at all to use the light of the full moon to cleanse my stone. I have way too many to carry outside. I also find it risky to leave these valuables out since I live in the city and in the very proximity of people. And who wants to wait a month to cleanse their stones? When you do heavy work with stones sometimes you need to cleanse them more than once per month and I won’t wait for a particular day of the month to do that. I have also done work with crystals where the light of the full moon wasn’t enough to clear the energy that had saturated my stones. I …

3 dynamics that prevent you from finding a healthy, loving and lasting relationship If you have found yourself frustrated with dating, you may find some answers below. Of course, there are many other issues that can be in the way, but I have seen these three often in my healing work. Below are powerful influences that can affect your ability to find and maintain a healthy, loving and lasting romantic relationship. Not only does it affect relationships in the area of love, but also friendships and family bonds. Pay attention to the sensations in your body to see if any of these resonate with you on some level.   The walls around your heart Most of us have built a protective armor around our heart to prevent us from pain. The problem is that this wall also prevents love from reaching you. And the amount of love that can flow from your heart out to others is also limited. Most people have many layers of walls around their heart making it very difficult for a loving relationship to occur. Those walls can also be hidden and they occur around the many aspects of the heart. Sometimes a person doesn’t feel …

Crystals and gemstones for achieving your goals

Crystals and gemstones for achieving your goals Ok, let’s be clear. Having crystals and gemstones around you will not drastically change your life. It will beautify it and may inspire you for sure. And it will facilitate certain changes in and around you. However, it will not do the hard work for you. And by hard work, I mean the inner contemplation (of being) and the outer physical steps (of doing). Crystals, gemstones, and minerals are passive amplifiers of specific frequencies. They help to align our energy resonance with those specific frequencies. In a sense, they act as role models of what is possible and desirable. Gemstones can help you achieve your desires by amplifying certain desirable frequencies. Kind of like how Oprah may inspire you to live a happier and healthier life. Oprah doesn’t make the changes in your life for you to experience happiness and wellbeing, she only provides inspiration and possibilities. When you work with crystals, you must pay attention to the subtle signs and nudges. Those nudges are not always ‘crystal clear’, so developing a relationship with your higher self will help you clarify the messages and act on them. Below is a selection of stones that …

Create your life – Achieving your goals

Create your life – Achieving your goals It’s that time of year when most of us contemplate on what we want to achieve in the coming year. We take a stock of our life and decide what we would like to change. We make ‘resolutions’. Unfortunately, most of us don’t keep them up for very long. There are many reasons why this could be the case. I often see people setting goals they ‘think’ they want to achieve, based on what others are doing. Or based on what they think they’should’ be doing. For many years, I had these kinds of goals and was never really successful in achieving them. First, because they were not based on who I am at the core. Second, because I was not deeply motivated by the goals, but more coerced into them. I fell prey to the belief that in order to achieve this, I had to do that. Which is rarely the case. There is more than one road to a certain destination and there are many destinations to choose from. I was always trying to achieve my goals by going against my nature, instead of starting from where I was and what …

Experiences – What We Truly Want

What most of us truly want are enriching experiences Many people think they’d be happier if they could have a bigger home, a bigger car, have a relationship, buy the latest trend outfit or those gorgeous shoes. I know I would! I also know that this particular feeling of happiness is only temporary. And I know it doesn’t really fulfill me in any way except maybe make my life a bit easier. What I know and from what I have observed is that the first underlying desire underneath the stuff we want is one of experience. We want to experience comfort, ease, connection, a sense of worthiness, etc. We want to experience freedom, we want to belong, we want to matter, we want our lives to matter. So by digging a bit deeper into what is on your wish list, you may start to notice a pattern emerging related to the deeper feeling you wish to experience. So, for Christmas, why not go for more enriching experiences that will fulfill you for a bit longer than any ‘stuff’ you could buy. Here is a list of my most cherished experiences to inspire you : The experience of luxury A few days …

Space Clearing – Creating Space for New Experiences

Space Clearing – Creating Space for New Experiences The first and most important thing to do is get clear on what you want. This includes how you want to feel, how you want to live your life, and what you want to experience. Your life right now is directly related to the energies that are present in your physical and energetic body. These energies have been accumulated over many lifetimes and experiences. Mostly, these energies include fears and belief systems that have developed over time or been instilled from our parents, culture, religion, etc. Emotions we haven’t been able to process or that have been passed down from generations. Often time, our space will reflect back to us these energies in overt or covert ways. And the objects that surround us or the way our place is maintained will help us identify what we unconsciously harbor. Space clearing can help us invite new energies and experiences. Clearing Clutter for New Experiences How many things do you hold onto that symbolizes the opposite of what you are trying to achieve? We often say we want something, however, in reality, we demonstrate the opposite and that is what we are attracting. Let …
