How crystals can help you lose weight

How crystals can help you lose weight

Among all of the methods for weight loss, you cannot ignore exercise and eating clean and watching your portion sizes. I personally have become addicted to working out, I have a routine, every morning I get up before the sun and get my workout done before I start my day. When I skip it, I can feel it. I am grumpy, and I just don’t feel myself. This doesn’t include my weekly rest day (which is also important.)   We need to care for our physical body like that, but there are other factors at play, and we are more than our physical bodies. We are also made up of our emotions our mind and our spirit. We are made of measurable and unmeasurable energy, and if we ignore that and only focus on the physical aspect of our workouts and food, we may not be successful in the long run. Weight loss is attainable, but without looking at yourself as a whole, it may not be sustainable.   There are many other ways to nurture your energy body as a part of the whole, and one way is to work with crystals.   How Crystals help~   Imbalances in the energetic body can manifest as excess weight and a general state of imbalance (physically, mentally and emotionally.) By taking care of potential problems before they hit your physical body, we can ward off dis-ease even before it manifests in your body. Crystal placement on and around your body supports health (thus a healthy weight) by the principle of entrainment; energy of a stronger and higher frequency will dominate...
How do you “work with” a crystal?

How do you “work with” a crystal?

I know I am always giving out information about the properties of different crystals and what they can do for you. In fact there is a ton of information out there about any crystal you are curious about and you might even have a drawer full of pretty rocks that you have no idea what to do with (and some you don’t even remember what they are.) Is this you? How exactly does one “work with” crystals?   First of all, how does crystal healing work?  Crystal placement on and around the body supports health by the principle of entrainment; energy of a stronger and higher frequency will dominate a similar frequency of a lower and more unstable amplitude.  As humans, we are highly influenced by frequencies, especially stable frequencies (like crystals,) we are highly responsive to Crystal Healing Therapy. Crystals and stones/minerals emit frequencies that don’t vary significantly, they are stable transmitters, and geometrically perfect. When they are placed within out close environment, they entrain us to meet their perfect vibrations. This varies with the the frequencies and other properties of the carefully chosen stone. Humans are easily knocked out of balance by the stresses of everyday life while crystals remain steady.  Since our bodies act as receivers, our physical, mental , emotional and spiritual systems are constantly tuning into our environment. I don’t know about you, but when I look around at the general environment, I can’t help but notice how chaotic it can seem. Modern life holds many stresses and challenges that can affect out health and well being.   So, one of the very best...
I need YOUR help to adopt a sugar free life

I need YOUR help to adopt a sugar free life

So, I have spoken before about being on a journey to better body image and relationship with food. I am already adept and in love with working out. I have my own groove, and that is not at all an issue. My issue is with food. What I take in to my body. I am thinking about giving up all sugar.   I opened a conversation on Facebook about sugar, and a general call for support on eliminating sugar from my diet to see how I feel. I am 99% ready to do that… but what is that little part of me that is keeping me from being 100%? I find that Facebook is an amazing tool for amassing support (both giving and receiving) I thank my many friends for stepping forward. Wouldn’t you like to come by and friend me to join in on the supportive vibe? Eliminating sugar and “white things” is the best practice. Another friend suggested giving up caffeine, sugar, gluten among other things and basing my diet around veggies and almonds (I could definitely do that) Oh! when she mentioned dates, she had me because to mindfully eat a date has got to be one of the most sensual things. I don’t consider myself a sugar junkie, but… am I? I know how to eat well. I am very learned on what a good diet it and can advise other people all day. I can see the issues other people are having and how said issues are affected by the diet, but, I can’t seem to get it right for myself. sugar, sugar, sugar,...
The Water of Life~How what we drink makes us beautiful.

The Water of Life~How what we drink makes us beautiful.

One of the best and easiest ways we can affect our health and beauty is by paying attention to what we are drinking. Even before watching what we put in our bodies in the form of food, we can witness startling changes by switching out the unhealthy drinks for the healthy ones. I am the last one to want to give up my morning coffee, and I won’t at this time, BUT I don’t have to drink it into the afternoon, and I could easily swap the embarrassingly more than occasional soda for some fruit juice and spritzer, or better yet, water. I could swap out tap water for filtered or spring water, the list goes on. Green tea is a good pick me up, it is also filled with antioxidants and other goodness that helps with fertility, weight control (belly fat,) colds, and the list could go on. Chicory root and chaga (which is a fungus that grows on trees) are both good coffee substitutes, even brewed like coffee, as is dandelion root. The side benefit is that they are all spectacular for your liver! Coffee in large quantity is not. (Coffee will also dehydrate you, I try to drink a glass of water for every cup of coffee I take in.) If you crave the fizzy, sparkling water from certain regions is full of trace minerals, check the source of your water and make sure it is genuine. Those bottles for sale in some convenience stores that just say ‘Drinking water’ is so suspect as it could easily just be tap water at a premium price (not...
How to fall in love with yourself! (another port in the weight loss journey)

How to fall in love with yourself! (another port in the weight loss journey)

True change and transformation can only take place once you accept the way things are *now* as if they are never going to change. For me, it is my new and “improved” plusher body. I put ‘improved’ in quotes because a part of myself is still striving to be there. Part of my recovery from self loathing (which is what it is to hate on your own body) is to write about it here and to offer support to others who are in similar situations. We can gain ideas and share our inspirations with one another. On top of all of the “techniques” and “programs” you can choose to align yourself with to achieve your desired end, there is still you. Don’t forget about your own tenderness, your beauty (just the way you are.) 25 pounds is not going to make me a better person. I already am a good person, and I am striving to be a better and more compassionate one. I can list the qualities that I love in myself, and add to it as I notice a new and inspired way I choose to be. I like to hand write these things in my journal. I also like to refer back to them often and add to the list as I remember new things. The Sunstone gem elixir is really helping me to feel happier with my self (in my own skin) The Calcites help too, and have worked wonders with this cold (moving prana and increasing energy) My friend recently reminded me of flower essences (look in the comments here.) She also inspired me...
It’s Full Moon Time Again!! June 2012

It’s Full Moon Time Again!! June 2012

Today our big, juicy moon is so full of herself! Can you see her?  She wants to be seen, this fertile and powerful moon, wants to be honored. and honor her I will. What kinds of things do you like to do when the moon is full?  One of the things I like about it is that I can see outside all night long, no matter where you go (unless it’s cloudy) there is a glow that allows you to see. I also like that I can see it from my bedroom window. Sometimes when I am not sleeping well I look out and realize why. I seem to need less sleep during this phase of the moon. When the moon is full, there is so much magic and power afoot. I usually plan things based on where the moon is phased. During the new moon, when it is very dark, I plant seeds (literally or figuratively,) or start projects. I follow those projects through to manifest in some way on the full moon, or if they are not ready yet to manifest, I harness the moon’s power to add energy to the project I am working on. A lot of people were excited about last month’s ‘Super Moon’ where the moon was the closest it had been to the Earth in a very many years (I am forgetting exactly how many.) There was a huge pull and download of energy received by many people (myself included) last month. I had planned to cleanse all of my crystals out in the night, and make gem elixirs, but alas, it...
