I am sure if the majority of us, if asked, how we would like to imagine our ideal home atmosphere, it would include some of the words, happy, calm, peaceful. We wouldn’t tend to use the words chaotic, stressful and intense. Although Its not always easy being positive and happy at home, mainly due to life duties, relationships and work life balance, but we can all try and create a better atmosphere at home when possible.
I am always looking for things that help improve my mood, wellbeing and give me a balanced happy lifestyle. So for the past several months, I have become increasingly more intrigued by the world of Holistic Healing, and positive energies, especially around creating more of a positive energy at home, seeing as that is where I am spending most of my time currently post-surgery.
Crystals and Gem stones.
I have started to enjoy learning more about gemstones and crystals. They are everywhere and popping up more and more. What are the meanings behind these beautiful stones? And which ones should I include in my own home, or on my body? So, they say the best way to learn, if it’s for you, is to get your hands on the gemstones. Luckily living in arty Brghton I am spoilt for choices, but after hearing great things about a supplier near me, ‘’ The Gemstoners.‘’ I gave them a visit.
Not only are these products healers and cleansers, but they also all look amazing too. And the staff were so helpful and informative, being someone still learning and intrigued.
I was advised by a lady, to choose the stone you are drawn to, I was instantly drawn to;
Amethyst- Balance, Protection and Healing. This stone has a calming influence, soothes stress and encourages balanced thinking.
Labradorite – A useful companion through change, banishes fear, insecurities and strengthens faith in self.
Gemstones are said to have health, wellbeing and mood benefits, and enrich the life of those who wear them or keep them in their home. I chosen to keep one on me as a necklace and one at home. I am so IN LOVE with these beautiful gemstones, their healing properties and I am ready to introduce them into my life.
Surrounding yourself with a few healthy reminders can only be a positive. From cards, art work, diary notes, to a screensaver on your work computer. A happy, healthy, mantra to go by, or a reminder to focus on when you need it.
I asked a local artist to paint this quote for me. Seeing as I am at home a lot this painting is now above my dressing table as a gentle reminder. And makes me feel more positive.
Aromatherapy and Essential Oils.
Negative energy and emotions are all around us, so creating the opposite at home is vital to our wellbeing, You can use essential oils to create this positive energy within your home. You know that feeling when you walk into a spa, the atmosphere, smell and energy. I get that same feeling in the evening when I create a relaxed scene, light music, a bubble bath and my favourite essential oils on the burner. I want to create that at home more. So I tend to use;
Evening – Lavender or Bergamot- for a calming peaceful effect, which always helps me sleep better.
Daytime – I use peppermint or Orange – Helps me feel sharp and focused on my daily tasks. Lemon and oranges oils can be great for mood improvers at any point during the day.
Beyond anything else, collecting crystals and gemstones, learning to use different essential oils, should be fun, enriching, and interesting. Get out and experience whatever you can, and see for yourself.
And I’m all for feeling calm. balanced and surrounding myself with positive energies …… listen to your intuition, and play around with things! Have fun in finding what suits you!
Everything is energy and energy is everything.
