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. 

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.

How to Heal Your Energy Using the Four Elements

How to Heal Your Energy Using the Four Elements

In our day and age, we are connected almost constantly to technology.

Either the smart phones, the radio in our car, the television in our living room, the computer at work.


And then it’s a wonder that we feel disconnected to each other.

That we feel alone.

Overwhelmed.

Disconnected from ancient wisdom, from our own bodies, from nature, even from each other.

As energy shifts around on this planet…we are regressing to a former knowledge.

The knowledge of the divine.

For many of us are stepping back into the knowledge that humanity held so long ago.

And we’re bridging the gap so to speak.

Allowing space for computers, and for vegans.

For meditation & yoga, and hospitals.

We have paved roads, and we can now make a living by writing blog posts.

This time in humanity’s evolution allows more and more for us to return to the ancient knowledge that we used to have. To make more room for, and care more for nature. Because we are moving out of the masculine and into the feminine.

Which means reconnecting to our natural roots, and stepping out of the isolation and overwhelm we may have tended towards in the past.

If you’ve been feeling this transition, and you have the DEEP desire to reconnect to mother nature, clear and balance your energy, and you want a fun way to do it, I’ve created this post just for you!!

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…

What is The Spiritual and Physical Power of Your Intuition?

What is The Spiritual and Physical Power of Your Intuition?

As human beings we live in a material world.

But within that is a spiritual, universal realm.

We are designed in such a way that allows for our bodies to be vessels for an energy that is carried out as a powerful frequency in this living universe.

This sadly neglected part of ourselves is referred to as our intuition.
 

Whether you understand it or not, you are often using your intuition in one form or another & in all of your experiences!

Even though intuition gets labeled under mystical experiences only, intuition is actually a very practical sense that we use everyday. It is even used within couples and groups.

A Review of "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel Van Der Kolk

A Review of "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel Van Der Kolk

Trauma affects many people throughout their lives.

And it isn’t only in refugee camps or battle fields.

It can be found in the home.

Physical Abuse

Sexual Abuse

Child Abuse

Mental Abuse

Absent Parents

Or even life-threatening accidents.

Trauma comes in many forms.

And sometimes it even comes from watching a loved-one suffer.

Like watching mommy being beaten.

Many of us have suffered traumas over the course of our lives. And many of us live in denial. The pain of the event is too great to imagine…so we shut it out…pretend like everything is ok.

A Review of In an Unspoken Voice by Peter Levine

A Review of In an Unspoken Voice by Peter Levine

If you're interested in trauma and PTSD....

This is the book for you.

This book is the complete guide to trauma, and somatic experiencing.

If you’re wondering what somatic experiencing is….

It’s a technique to allow you to release trauma.

See when we are in a fight or flight situation, and we can do neither…we have a secret third option: freeze.

And when we freeze (such as during rape or sexual abuse) the large amounts of energy summoned for the fight or flight response are stored inside the body.

Which leads to all kinds of problems.

This is the therapy that changed my life.

See I had been to many therapists before, but I was still stuck feeling miserable, lonely, and numb.

A Review of Be Free Where You Are by Thich Nhat Hanh

A Review of Be Free Where You Are by Thich Nhat Hanh

“Be Free Where You Are” by Thich Nhat Hanh is a non-fiction manual for mindfulness meditation.

Thich Nhat Hanh runs a mindfulness meditation center in France, and lived in Vietnam during the Vietnam war.

This is one of my favorite books….of all time!

It’s short.

You can finish the entire book in about an hour.

But don’t let that fool you. Hanh has spared no word! This book is full of useful information about mindfulness.

Hanh teaches you about mi...READ MORE
