As we move into Spring you can feel the energy start to change. It’s a time of change, a time of detox, of new beginnings and time to come out of the slumber of winter. It’s also a time to bring about new habits, and change any habits that currently don’t serve us.
Being healthy means taking care of yourself both physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Maintaining your health or healing from a health challenge is a daily commitment, one that takes physical and mental determination, but the benefits certainly pay off.
There are a number of things you can do to help keep yourself healthy. Eating well and regular exercise are ways to keep our physical bodies healthy. However mental, spiritual and emotional health is just as important. Meditation, journalling, yoga, mindfulness practices, affirmations, and crystals are just some of our favourite ways to improve our holistic health.
As you know we are all about the crystals here at Yoga & Oils, so let’s chat crystals to assist with health:
HEMATITE: Grounds your energy, which allows you to move forward and focus on your health.
BLOODSTONE: A powerful crystal for your health, this gets the energy flowing throughout the body. It emits a strong vibration that is connected to your heart to help to promote circulation of energy and blood throughout the body.
MALACHITE: This stone helps you to fully transform your health. Malachite assists awareness of the choices you make and habits you may have that do not serve your overall health and wellbeing. Malachite encourages you to make different choices that better serve you.
TURQUOISE: It’s easy to ignore your well being temporarily so turquoise helps you to remember to prioritise your health.
CLEAR QUARTZ: Unsure what your health goals are? Clear Quartz gives you this clarity. When you are able to visualize your goals, your mind and body can begin to work toward them.
CRYSTAL INTENTION - “I AM HEALTHY”
Here is a simple crystal practise that sets healthy intentions, and encourages you to become more aware of your health and prioritise healthy choices.
Hold all the crystals in your hands and state your intentions out loud, “I AM HEALTHY”
Lie on your back and place your crystals accordingly.
HEMATITE place over your pubic bone
BLOODSTONE place under your belly button
MALACHITE place over your heart
TURQUOISE place over your throat
CLEAR QUARTZ place on your forehead between your eyebrows.
Set a timer for 5 to 11 minutes and breathe deeply.
During this time, visualise every cell of your being in radiant health.
