VLOG: 7 UNIQUE Ways to Add Crystal + Gemstone Energy To Your Home To Feel Great

7 UNIQUE Ways to Add Crystal & Gemstone Energy To Your Home To Feel Great

1. Add gemstone (non-toxic) directly into a nebulizer (where you put water and essential oils). Consider making your own gemstone essences and add the liquid essence/tincture in replace of the crystal. You can add toxic stones but only if you make them into an essence via the indirect method!

2. Add gemstone (essence or actual crystal if non-toxic) to your bedroom humidifier - today I added shungite and carnelian!

3. Add gemstone (essence or actual crystal if non-toxic) to your bath water 

4. Add gemstones throughout your home (office, bedroom, bathroom, living room and even kitchen windowsill)

5. Add essences under your tongue or spray over your body and head to permeate your aura (great to do before meditation or after a long day around energy-draining people)

6. Add gemstone (essence or actual crystal if non-toxic) directly to your drinking water (I have been drinking citrine, larimar and clear quartz water for a few months)

7. Add gemstone (essence or actual crystal if non-toxic) to your homemade cleaning products!

13 Essential Steps To Become a Masterful Online Coach or Mentor & Get Incredible Client Results

In this week's FB Live inside High Vibin' Soulpreneurs, we dive deep on the most essential steps to be the BEST COACH possible to your online clients so that they can get the best results working with you!

1. Dial up your A game 30 mins prior - that means do not schedule back to back calls so that you can recharge and reset between calls (use washroom, read last week's notes, eat a snack and hydrate). Unfortunately 55 min/call coaches, who schedule back to back clients at the top of the hour, often show up late to their clients & are clearly drained.

2. Listen a LOT and practice Motivational Interviewing (have them discover the answer from within instead of shoving it down their throat).

3. Have a plan in place that will move them forward toward their goal - don’t just talk about it but figure out the next best action steps each week - break it down into manageable pieces for them.

4. Do your Self Care, consistently, and make decisions that support your happiness & joy (because this frequency is higher (process of entrainment via LOA effects your client's own vibration). Be sure to exercise frequently, eat healthy and make sleep a priority.

5. Come with tons of water (triple what you think you'll need for call).

6. Be impeccable with your word and super organized - you can’t be hot mess - that is a disservice to your client investing in you and trusting you with their transformation.

7. Take notes CONSTANTLY- make sure you know what is going on and never ever show up unprepared.

8. Email your client the agreed upon "stretches" each week after your call to keep them accountable to their goals and moving forward.

9. Follow up with them on their stretches goals & don't be scared to remind them of why they hired you (many coaches don't even think about this and then their clients end up with no results).

10. Empower them to rise but don’t twist their arms - accountability and follow through is learned THROUGH working with a coach - if you don’t allow them to step up to the plate you disempower them.

11. Lead by example - practice what you preach!!!

12. Set boundaries - they will respect you 10x more and value your time 10x more if you do (that means set hours for your work and terms written into your client contracts regarding no-show or cancellations).

13. Be a relatable human - never try to present you have it all figured out. Be kind, compassionate & honest. If you can, throw in some humour, too!

{New Video} My Backstory with Alcohol Addiction and Positive Transformation ~ Extreme Vulnerability

In this video, I decided to be more vulnerable and transparent than I have ever been before with regards to my experience with alcohol addiction, which runs through my family tree.

You see, I feel it is so easy us to show the world how great life is now but not enough people ACTUALLY share about what is was like before it got good. They may summarize it into a single sentence but don't give you the details of what actually took place to support their positive transformation.

..and that is why, in this video, I take you on the journey with me, from where I was (hanging out in rock bottom with a carpet imprint on the side of my face) and what steps were taken to move me into my new (best!) chapter of my life.

I am now in my dream life, submerged fully in my soulpreneur career & higher purpose, in the best health & fitness of my life, in union with my soulmate and {most importantly}, feeling radical self-love for who I am & have become in this humbling experience of addiction.

I share this backstory to inspire someone who needs a reminder that there is always room and opportunity to overhaul your life in an amazing way. It was not too long ago I was in my rock bottom feeling so far away from everything that is now my new normal. If it is possible for me, it is 100% possible for you too.

Hugs & I believe in you,

Christine

What is a chakra and how does it work?

You may have heard about the chakras but aren't totally clear on what exactly they are and how they work.  You can think of the chakras like energy centres of the of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. It is these bodies that are thought of as part of the subtle body.  A chakra is an energy point (or node) in the subtle body versus the physical body.  You can picture a chakra as a funnel shaped energy centre (or vortex) that corresponds with many meridian points and nerve bundles in the human body.

There are different ways a person can open, clear and balance their chakras.  In fact, each chakra resonates with different foods, colours, sounds/music, mantras, activities, yoga poses, affirmations, and essential oils and crystals from the plant and elemental kingdoms.

There are many chakras in the subtle human body but there are seven primary chakras that are often considered to be the most important ones.

1st (Root) Chakra: This is located at the base of the spine and the corresponding colour is red. When balanced, it will bring about good health, feeling grounded, safe and secure; prosperous  and when unbalanced or closed it will bring about feelings of insecurity, fear, financial difficulties, depression, boredom and lethargy. Physically, an unbalanced root chakra will bring about dry, pale, blotchy skin.

2nd (Sacral) Chakra: This is located just below the navel  and the corresponding colour is orange. When balanced, it will bring about feelings of pleasure, increased creativity & enthusiasm and healthy sex drive, and when unbalanced or closed it will bring about feelings of guilt, shame, depression, mood swings and addictive tendencies . Physically, an unbalanced sacral chakra will bring about lower back pain, puffiness and bloating.

3rd (Solar Plexus) Chakra: This is located at the stomach region and the corresponding colour is yellow. When balanced, it will bring about healthy emotions and a zest for life, abundance, stability, courage and personal power and when unbalanced or closed it will bring about feelings of decreased self worth, shorter temper, increased aggression and stubbornness. Physically, an unbalanced solar plexus chakra will bring about puffiness, bloating, mid-back pain and unhealthy cravings.

4th (Heart) Chakra: This is located at the heart/chest region and the corresponding colour is green. When balanced, it will bring about feelings of compassion, connection, empathy, happiness, peace & love and when unbalanced or closed it will bring about feelings of rejection, jealousy, codependency and a tendency to be withdrawn & critical/judgemental. Physically, an unbalanced heart chakra will bring about a pasty complexion and poor circulation.

5th (Throat) Chakra: This is located at the throat and the corresponding colour is blue. When balanced, it will bring about open expression and truthful communication and when unbalanced or closed it will bring about feelings of shyness or difficulties with appropriate communication & listening skills. Physically, an unbalanced throat chakra will bring about stress, fatigue and thyroid challenges.

6th (Third Eye) Chakra: This is located at the point of your forehead above and between your eyebrows and the corresponding colour is indigo. When balanced, it will enhance intuition, imagination, insight and intellect and when unbalanced or closed it will bring about impaired concentration, memory, thinking abilities and disrupted sleep. Physically, an unbalanced third eye chakra will bring about headaches, hormonal changes and depression.

7th (Crown) Chakra: This is located above the head and the corresponding colour is violet (or white).  When balanced, it will bring about a deepened spirtual connection and increased wisdom and open-mindedness and when unbalanced or closed it will bring about feelings of separateness, fear of death and cynisim. 

Overall, chakra balancing and healing allows for many benefits, including the following:

-deep relaxation & improved sleep

-calming your mind and thoughts & reduced anxiety

-subtle emotional shifts

-increased energy

-deepened spiritual insights

-elevation of mood & release of negative emotion

3 ways to ring in the Autumn Equinox

 

The seasons are changing & autumn is definitely in the air! I love everything about this season including the cool+crisp fresh air, comfy clothes, as well as curling up & getting cozy on the couch. This year Bodycherish is celebrating the autumn festivities by bringing back the Organic Beauty Butter from last winter... but this time in Vanilla Spice! These luxury green beauty butters as well as a special edition candle called Let's Get Cozy will launch on the fall equinox (September 22nd) which also happens to coincide with the end of mercury retrograde (hallelujah!). I don't know about you, but I have most definitely felt the effects of this retrograde. With it concluding the same day of the equinox, I cannot help but feel compelled to start fresh and change things up.. in all areas of my life for that matter. Below I have shared 3 easy ways to "spice up your life" (pun intended) with this seasonal change:

1) Clear the clutter. I know it is more common to clear out the closet and house of clutter when spring hits, but I like to do an overhaul with each season change. It helps me make space for the new. This includes donating clothes I have not worn for > 1 year. You know you are just as guilty. They are sitting there and you keep saying one day you will wear that shirt. Really, you don't even like the damn shirt.. you just feel guilty and like you "should" because you bought it. That is so silly. Someone out there needs that shirt and would actually really like it. So now is the time to declutter & donate. Trust me, you will feel lighter and brighter after! Like a load has been taken off.

2) Spice it up! No, not with spiced rum :-) ... but with scents that infuse your home and even your body with something different than summertime coconuts. There is something so delicious about curling up on the couch with a good book while having a candle lit and that is what has inspired Bodycherish's Let's Get Cozy Candle, scented with organic essential oils of vanilla, nutmeg and a touch cinnamon and clove. This high vibration candle is absolutely perfect for both autumn and winter as it is these seasons that have the most family gatherings. Inside this candle you'll find flower essence of holly.. which is all about opening the heart. Once fully burned you'll find a raw clear quartz point inside. A  little treasure to keep for you or a loved one! It's also nice to occasionally change the scents we apply to our body. The special edition Organic Beauty Butter {vanilla spice edition) has a delicious scent of vanilla, cocao butter, & subtle notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove.

3) Bring the outdoors inside. With cooler temperatures you may feel like staying inside more and that means less time in nature. Most all people tend to spend less time in nature during the autumn and winter months. We exchange our outdoor walks or runs with some good ol' sweaty spin or hot yoga classes. I definitely do this but there is actually a side effect of being less connected from nature. This leads to feeling less grounded or rooted (more flighty and stressed out). Being in nature soothes our souls but also helps our physical body stay in equilibrium. So what can we do? Well, we can bring nature indoors! This may include investing in a pink himalayan salt lamp you have been eyeing. These lamps change the quality of the air in your home as if you were near the ocean, among many other benefits. Another way is going to the local greenhouse and splurging on some house plants that are especially helpful for the air quality they promote. One of my favourite and most hearty house plants is the snake plant. I have owned mine for for 2 years and 8 months and it is still going strong! Yet another way, that can be a family fun day, is by bringing the kids outdoors to pick a few favourite leaves or pinecones from the ground. You can then hot glue these beauties to a pre-made branch style wreath (found at local craft stores). You can also find your elements from nature while on vacation. Bringing home sand or seashells is a great souvenir from your travels and also looks pretty displayed inside a vase.

Crystal Healing Benefits of Larimar and Sugilite

Larimar: crystal of serenity, promoting relaxation in every aspect. As a soothing water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides excessive passion into peace.  Larimar is particularly helpful for cartilage conditions and constricted joints.  Larimar is used to enhance alternative treatments, particularly those involving heat, light, and water. Larimar relieves high blood pressure and stress-related illnesses, and may alleviate excessive Fire element energy such as infection, fever and inflammation. It may also be used to treat skin disorders aggravated by stress, such as hives, rashes, eczema and psoriasis. 

Larimar is connected to the goddess energies and helps women to re-attune to their innate femininity and restore their connection with nature. It emanates vivaciousness, humor, and a sense of one's own power. It helps women to call upon the goddess within to fully manifest their highest purpose in life. 

Larimar effortlessly induces a deep meditative state, raising consciousness and harmonizing the body and soul to new vibrations. It dissolves the boundaries of spiritual self and allows one's true pathway in life to be revealed. Larimar facilitates angelic contact and communication with other realms. 

Larimar is an excellent stone for finding a soulmate. It facilitates the healing of unresolved issues or fears, trauma to the heart, or past-life relationships.

Sugilite: known as a premier “love stone for this age,” embodying the perfection of Divine love and the manifestation of this energy on the Earth plane. It brings the gifts of wisdom and spiritual devotion, helping one to understand that Truth is the highest form of love, and living in one’s own truth is not only healing but empowering.

Manganese within Sugilite helps absorb negative energy and is an excellent pain reliever, especially for headaches, joint pain and discomfort. It may be beneficial for fighting off viruses and inflammation, and is one of the premier stones to aid in the treatments of cancer by lifting despair, calming emotions, and channeling healing energy into the body. Light colored Sugilite is considered especially beneficial for cleansing and purifying the lymph system.

An exceptional crystal for awakening the Crown Chakra, Sugilite infuses the body with light, bringing spiritual and unconditional love in through the Crown and down to the Base Chakra, aligning all of the chakras as it goes. It is a powerful attractor of healing energies, and has surfaced to further an awareness of the connection between the well-being of the mind and the well-being of the body.  

Sugilite is one of the very best crystals for those who are highly sensitive and take on whatever energies are around them. Sugilite creates a warm, protective “shield of Light,” keeping the wearer impervious to negativity and the disharmony of others.

I'm excited to share that the Pink Himalayan Soak Salts and Therapeutic Soak Salts, both contain larimar and sugilite crystal essences (plus rose quartz) that i personally prepare. This ensures your bath time experience is the ultimate healing experience for the mind, body and spirit. Click here to see salts!
