No matter how calm we think we are, we all suffer from stress at some point in our lives. Reiki trained? Yes we try and live by the five laws….Spiritual?..yes we try to live by the Spiritual law, but sometimes all that happens is we are calm on the outside but inside we are a boiling volcano of spitting hot, churning lava, completely knocking out our energy system that has a huge knock on effect on our physical and emotional body resulting in the symptoms listed in the diagram above.
So we ALL need a little bit of help.
Stress is our own resistance to change, circumstances changing faster than our ability to change with them. Resistance is our way of trying to slow things down so we can deal with the change in bite size chunks, so we can turn them over in our minds to see all sides before making a decision, deal emotionally with the change and so move forward. Through our lives we have to deal with and adapt quickly to disappointment, shock, trauma, physical pain and other tremendous emotional and psychological imbalances to our personal environment.
My best tried and tested reaction to anything that makes my blood boil and spit is to sleep on it, everything looks slightly better in the morning, well not always better, but while we ‘ve been asleep our subconscious has pondered over the problem and very kindly come up with a set of solutions for us.
Holistically there are some crystals and essential oils that can also help us through the tough times. The energy vibrations of the crystals and oils can soothe the energy frequencies created through the different forms of stress we go through.
CRYSTALS Wearing a crystal through the day as a pendant or in a pocket or small pouch near the heart chakra can affect imbalances in our energy restoring to a more positive state.
AMETHYST – Helps you to think and act at the highest level, not getting involved in any “politics” in the work place or home. I sell Amethyst clusters to place in the home or work place to transmute negative energy bringing calm and peaceful solutions. Amethyst can also prevent migraines and alleviate arthritic pain.
CITRINE – The “success stone” encourages a bright outlook and happiness. I have one in my wallet and around my money plant in my wealth corner at home as it attracts wealth. Citrine stabilises emotions and can sooth family problems. Acting on our Solar Chakra its brilliant for alleviating stress related digestive problems.
CLEAR QUARTZ – Increases mental clarity.
ROSE QUARTZ for soothing issues and protecting against jealous energies. Helps unblock anxiety and promotes healing of private issues. Allows you to become more receptive and open to challenges, Placed between warring factions (children’s bedroom walls or between you and unpleasant neighbours) can calm situations and promote love.
SMOKEY QUARTZ – Stabilises mood swings. Grounds feelings of depression and transmutes negativity. Worn at the solar plexus it’s excellent for PMS, crankiness and imbalance due to extreme stress and burn out. It provides a protective field to allow recovery.
FLUORITE – Unblocks stuck energies. For sluggish digestion use yellow/green combo – blue/white for muscular or skeletal issues and purple/clear for head area complaints. A purple stone by your head while you sleep will help any congested thoughts.
HEMATITE – My bestest stone I love it. Sometimes called the “anti –stress “ stone it is an ab- so- lu-te- ly brilliant protective stone…one of the best! It will reflect any negative, jealous energies that are directed at you, will dissolve any issues when meeting confrontation. Hematite also balances the meridians in your body. I have Hematite under the doormat at my front door so everyone is “cleansed” of any untoward energy as they cross the threshold. Being a pretty good medium himself, my eldest son has small stones at his bedroom doorway to stop him picking up on any of the Spiritual energies that come part and parcel of my work at home and so allowing him to have undisturbed sleep!.
MOONSTONE – A lovely stone for the ladies, it calms over reactions to situations (what? We don’t do drama…we just don’t need ANOTHER thing to sort out!) and helps to deal with any emotional triggers in a calm way.
TURQUIOSE – Another stone of protection, but more physical. It acts as a toner for all the systems of the body, absorbing and breaking down any toxins. Worn at the throat it will strengthen your will allowing you to communicate effectively, sweetening your voice while speaking your truth. Can prevent premature aging that goes hand in hand with extreme stress.
These are just a few. For any more information or help please contact me,
Aromatherapy oils will act in the same way as crystals, working on energy frequencies through the olfactory system (smell..straight to the limbic system)to calm and soothe. You can put a couple of drops on a scarf or hanky to inhale during the day, put into a bath, on the floor of the shower or a couple of drops in baby oil in a diffuser for the home.
Please do not hesitate to contact me through email or text if you are going through something at the moment that you really need help with.
