Rose Quartz - Why, When, and How to Use Rose Quartz Crystals

Rose Quartz - Why, When, and How to Use Rose Quartz Crystals

This post is going to serve as my open love letter to rose quartz...a crystal that I orginally shunned because of it's popularity!

Now...it's my absolute favorite crystal ever.

Rose quartz, pictured below, is a light pink form of quartz that you can find in most jewlery shops, crystal shops, and yoga stores. 

Like I mentioned earlier, I kind brushed off rose quartz because it was so popular, and I didn't really see it as a powerful stone...more like just pretty and around a lot of influencer's necks.

Boy was I wrong.

In fact I credit this stone with some of the deepest, and most honest talks between my husband and I. 

Read more about its uses, where to find it, how to wear it, where to put it, and which chakra & zodiac sign it's associated with. 

Is Money Spiritual? Is Wanting Money Bad?

Is Money Spiritual? Is Wanting Money Bad?

MONEY IS SPIRITUAL

When we were born onto this earth, and our souls took the form of a human body for the next 60-100 years, we also took on the responsibility of caring for our physical bodies. Because if we don’t we can’t survive.

We also, when we came into corporeal form took on the laws of our universe and one of the laws is the Law of Gender (or the Law of Polarity also works) and therefore each of us has both masculine and feminine energy in us.

We have the survival instinct…so yeah we gotta survive!

But on a larger scale, we were meant to live abundant lives. Our natural state is a state of abundance, where we’re thriving and giving and able to share our spirituality and our gifts & talents.

I mean let’s look at it through the lense of self-care which has a similar function.

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “put your own oxygen mask on before helping others,” why is this necessary? Because if you don’t you die!

Same thing with self-care, if you don’t take care of yourself you get burnt-out, crabby, helpless, and hopeless.

And hey! Same things with money! If you are constantly worried about how you’re going to pay for your next meal…then you won’t be able to show up and serve.

Money has a million functions in our lives..and those don’t necessarily have anything to do with being greedy or selfish, things like paying our bills, paying for healthcare, pet care etc.

And even things that could be considered slightly more “greedy” like getting a massage, or hiring someone to clean the house, or taking a vacation all have spiritual purposes. Self-care anyone?!?

Money is love.

Attract Money into Your Life Using Crystals, Oils, and Chakras

Attract Money into Your Life Using Crystals, Oils, and Chakras

There are many, many ways of attracting money into your life...and crystals are just one of them!

Crystals work either to attract money or to balance the energy that is responsible for attracting money.

For example some crystals are luck and money attracting, and others will balance the heart chakra...the chakra responsible for attracting wealth and money. 

Also! Essential oils can help you build and attract wealth, so we'll talk about that next. 

Finally we'll talk about the lower chakras and how each of them have their own relationship with wealth and money!

Fighting Burnout and Overwhelm for Spiritual Entrepreneurs

Fighting Burnout and Overwhelm for Spiritual Entrepreneurs

One of the most common complaints that I hear from spiritual entrepreneurs is that they are overwhelmed with social media.

In fact hardly a day goes by where I don't read the typical "I need a break from social media" post.

Hey I LOVE the fact that you take breaks when you need to.

In fact I would encourage it!

But I also want to offer you guys some tools to reduce the inevitable stress that us spiritual and empathic types can feel online. 

Because it can be a BIG energy sucker to get online and share your heart and soul...or even just reading the millions of not-so-authentic posts that people put out.

The online world is like the real world but if the real world were like a city in the wild west 200 years ago...there are different rules...made-up rules.

People act differently...and it can be exhausting if you're the healer type...because there's a lot of wild energy! People selling, buying things, hiding behind their computers while they say horrible things....

It's an energy catalyst...and let's just say there's no shortage of strange fear energy out there.

That's why sometimes as sensitive beings it can be a bit overwhelming. 

Finding Your Life Purpose With Aquamarine (Clearing the Throat Chakra)

Finding Your Life Purpose With Aquamarine (Clearing the Throat Chakra)

To say that my aquamarine stone is single-handedly responsible for the creation and success of my blog is not an exaggeration. 

I first got my aquamarine stone about a year and a half ago, coincidentally around the same time that my blog started.

My counselor gave it to me and my husband as a spur-of-the-moment going away present. 

It was spontaneous that she gave it to me, and upon assessing the value of a stone that large I was truly shocked! 

But the aquamarine was essential to my spiritual development...because it triggers the balancing of the throat chakra.

5 Lessons from Trees for Your Online Business

5 Lessons from Trees for Your Online Business

I have a favorite tree.

Which I hug every day.

Much to the embarrassment of my fiancé while were out walking the dog.

But I don’t care, because it took me a long time to be able to hug trees openly in public. I mean the word tree-hugger is practically a cussword.

But trees and their connection to divine nature, can offer us unique meditations on what it means to build a strong online business.

So here they are the 5 lessons from trees for your online business.

1.       Stay still – Staying still, or staying connected to your clear message is one of the hardest parts of running an online business.

This is the Biggest Mistake You Can Make on Your Healing Journey

This is the Biggest Mistake You Can Make on Your Healing Journey

When I first told my parents about being molested they took me to a shrink.

This lady was nice, she had candles, spoke softly, had curly hair.

But I never left her office feeling much better than when I went in.


I always left with the same amount of numbness feeling and hurt as before.

I still wasn’t connecting with anyone or feeling especially happy or free.


So when I finally connected with the woman who would teach me to begin freeing myself, I was overjoyed.

I remember leaving her house that day with a sense of calmness, and almost neutrality that I hadn’t felt in years….or perhaps ever.

It was the most powerful thing I had ever experienced on my healing journey thus far, so needless to say I booked more appointments, and over the following two years I would continue to go.

And continue to leave feeling open and connected to the world again.


But during those two years, I began to make the biggest mistake anyone can make on their healing journey…I trusted someone else to completely guide my healing journey.

As a child who suffered abuse, I was desperate to have someone guide me.

It was consolation really, for my lack of strong adult figures, now in my adulthood I was going to rely on someone to take me step by step.

I was so used to relying completely on myself, that it was kind of a relief to give up my life to someone else’s guidance, I wouldn’t have to worry about it.

She would guide me, I thought, to completely heal myself.

But soon, I would learn…

3 Reasons Why You Need to Heal Your Emotional Pain

3 Reasons Why You Need to Heal Your Emotional Pain

We all have dreams.

The kind of house we want. The kind of relationships we want. The kind of footprint we leave on this earth.

But often, we are trapped in fear of really manifesting what we want.

Why?

Because we are trapped in the shame, fear, anger, and numbness from our pasts.

 

What would it mean to you to be able to live your life exactly as you want to live it?

Where would you be going? Travelling the world? Visiting old friends?

What would you be doing? Helping others? Building a business?

I want you to take a moment right now. Yes right now…shut your eyes…take a deep breath…and give your mind 30 seconds of focused attention on what your dream life would look like. You can start from waking up in the morning. Ok….ready? GO!

 

How was that?

What did you see?

And the final and most important question….why don’t you have it yet?
