It's time for another edition of the Crystal Spotlight series! Today, our focus is on magical Moonstone. Moonstone has a special place in my heart. It was one of the very first crystals I started working with. I have a beautiful Grey Moonstone, that I used to support my connection with my intuitive abilities when I became a Reiki Master. This crystal gave me so much comfort when my dad made his transition into the non-physical realm. I worked with it endlessly, and it allowed
As someone who helps to facilitate the healing of beautiful souls, I’m discovering more and more, the incredible importance of caring for myself first. This is a point that I tend to drive home in all my Reiki trainings, and I feel like the old adage, that we teach what we most want to learn, really applies for me. It’s always been very easy for me to care for others. I love the feeling of helping, uplifting, and seeing those around me thrive. It’s such a beautiful experience
If you've ever been to one of my Reiki trainings, you'll know that I am completely in love with the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. Their message of love, Well-Being and empowerment resonate deep in my heart. They truly are my spiritual teachers. One of the wonderful practices that I have received from these teachings, is the magic of appreciation. Appreciation is akin to counting your blessings and looking for the best in things. According to Abraham, it differs from gratitude.
I'm a big believer in the benefits of meditation. It supports your physical body in so many ways: it reduces stress, accelerates the healing process, helps your brain to function more optimally and promotes a deeper sleep. And that's just really scratching the surface about what scientists have discovered about meditation so far. The emotional and spiritual benefits of meditation run deep. A daily meditation practice supports your ability to connect with the whole of who you
Happy New Year lovely souls! I hope your 2018 has been wonderful so far! It feels like there is so much fresh new energy surrounding us as we step into the New Year. Fresh new desires are at the forefront of our minds, and so is the desire to align with them, which is a beautiful thing. There's been lots going on for me over at Earth Elements HQ! I've been spending most of my time prepping for the new, in depth Reiki Master training happening next weekend, and also enjoying t
The holidays have come and gone and we are now in that lovely stretch of time between Christmas and New Year's. This is usually the time when we begin to reflect on how this past year unfolded and think about the things we want to manifest in 2018. No matter what is on your list, I bet we can agree that something that you can never have too much of is happiness! And with good reason. There is so much research out there that supports the premise that happy people are healthier
Meditation has become a part of my daily spiritual practice. There is nothing quite like starting your day out by quieting your mind, and experiencing the shifts and synchronicities that occur throughout the day as a result. My personal meditation practice has shifted throughout the years. These days, I like to sit for about 20 minutes, listening to the sounds of a gentle rain through my favourite meditation app (it's Insight Timer, if you feel inclined to check it out!), and
It seems like the last month flew by in the blink of an eye! Well, the last few months really. It's been a beautiful and busy holiday season. It's been so nice to have the last few days to relax, have a breath and prepare for the New Year. The year is coming to a close and we will move into 2016 in a few short days. I find that this is always a moment in time that brings reflection, as I think about the things that happened this year and what I hope to create this coming year
