How easy is it to allow your ego to take over and supply you with "evidence" that your heart-based and passion driven idea is just silly? How easy is it to let ego come in and completely dismantle your inspired idea and keep you playing safe and small, within the confines of your comfort zone?
I think we can all agree that it is very easy...and that is where the work lies. It's in catching those limiting thoughts and consciously choosing to stop them and paralyze them in their tracks. This is key because our fundamental beliefs about what is possible in our lives (career, money, health and relationships) is based upon the repetitive thoughts we think.
So ask yourself, are you spending more time arguing for your limitations by providing your brain "evidence" why you cannot do something. Or are you choosing to support your dreams and ambitions by intentionally choosing to think thoughts that provide you with evidence things are and will work out in your favour?
On a personal note, I provided my resignation letter to my corporate employer, who paid me $7,100/mo (not including the golden pension and bonuses) at the beginning of March 2017 with FULL KNOWLEDGE I had not one but TWO mortgages to start paying all by myself by April 1st (my tenants from my rental property told me they were moving out March 31st). Not only that, I had a credit card payment coming up for a coaching program that I had enrolled in the month prior that cost me a $10 thousand dollars Canadian!
You may ask yourself, why would I quit the financial security at such a financially taxing time? What sane person would do such a thing? I was launching my private coaching practice in April but I had no so-called evidence it was going to match my corporate employer's salary. And I most definitely had no hard evidence I was going to DOUBLE my corporate salary within 9 months of unhooking myself from that soul-sucking job...but I did just that #boom!
What I had was more powerful. I had belief that no matter what, I was going to be successful AF. How did I develop such a resilient belief system? I only provided myself with evidence that I was going to be successfull. I did not allow limiting thoughts to derail my soul purpose and drive. I prioritized keeping my vibration high knowing I attract what I AM. I consciously spent time ruminating in how and why things were going to work out for me. I believed, and still do, that the Universe and a higher power wants to support me fulfill my deepest desires and wildest dreams in this life.
And because I believed it BEFORE I could see it, I attracted what I envisioned to me.
I share to showcase that this is possible for you too. I could have spent countless more months and years at my corporate job supplying myself with reasons why I had to financially. . and trust me, there would have always been another excuse to put my dream on the back burner of life.
Life is so short and we can live it in a mediocre, auto-pilot kind of way. Or we can live it like we mean it & open ourselves up to the countless possible (amazing) outcomes that are equally available to every. single. one of us.
By now you've probably heard about vision boards and the term "the power of manisfestion," which is often discussed on social media sites involved with the new age movement. You may be wondering, is this all hype or does a person actually have the power to manifest and create their future experiences or desired outcomes in life.
The answer is... hell YES!
When you are visualizing and actually seeing daily reminders that invoke a feeling that you desire to experience, through the law of attraction, circumstances are brought toward you that gradually bridge the gap between where you are now and where you would like to be in the future. The key here is to pick images, words & colours (whether digital or paper) that actually trigger a FEELING response within you.
The truth is that we have creative control over our lives. We have the power to live our lives on purpose, rather than letting life "happen to us." When we practice deliberate thought and visualize experiences that offer a positive feeling response, we change our vibrational offering.
I encourage you to create a vision/mood board through an easy and free collage program found on www.picmonkey.com. That is how I made the above example. Or you may wish to create one with magazine clippings for a more tangible option. I promise you, this is an effective & efficient way to get the ball rolling and bring your dreams into your reality! Happy visualizing!
So what is a crystal essence? It is common knowledge that there are many health benefits to the body & skin from using pure botanicals, essential oils and other carrier oils sourced from the plant kingdom. However, there isn’t as much discussion around the healing and beautifying effects from mineral kingdom (aka crystals and gems) which are sourced directly from Mamma Nature, herself.
A lot of health conscious or spiritually minded folks will purchase these beautiful crystals & gems for their aesthetically pleasing quality, but also for their unique metaphysical properties. For example, wearing, holding or even placing a crystal close to your body will cause a subtle effect to your body's own energy field.
You can think of the body's energy field like a glass of water. Placing a crystal on or near the body is like dropping another liquid substance into the glass of water. Depending on the potency of that substance, it will then permeate into the surrounding water, causing a subtle change to occur. There are countless resources that explain in detail the physical, emotional and spiritual healing effects which each crystal holds.
Dr. Masaru Emoto has extensive research which scientifically proves that water that has not been contaminated or altered (sourced directly from the spring) is the most programmable substance on earth. This means it can be imbued (charged or saturated) with the same metaphysical properties (think: energetic footprint) of the crystal that is placed within it or beside it within a larger glass jar (if made via the indirect method).
Dr. Emoto’s studies scientifically prove that spring water can also be programmed with our thoughts, attitudes and emotions. His studies show that loving words and positive thoughts directed at water create a brilliant & complex snowflake pattern when viewed with a powerful microscope. If you are curious to learn more, check out his best-selling book, The Hidden Messages in Water.
A crystal essence (also known as a gem elixir) is when water has been imbued with the same energy or vibrational frequency that the crystal possesses. Since water is very sensitive to its surrounding environment, it is very important that the water used is sourced from the highest quality spring water that has not been contaminated with chemicals (tap water with fluoride, bromine & chlorine) or that has been stripped of its healthy minerals. It is also important to use water that has only been stored in glass packaging as plastic can distort the water’s natural energetic footprint.
How are BODYCHERISH’S crystal essences made?
BodyCherish's Crystal essences are made from glass bottled glacial spring water. The crystals used for each essence are first cleansed (physically and energetically) and then placed inside the water and covered for a 24 hour period. BodyCherish maximizes the healing energies imbued into the water by placing the glass jars (with water & crystal inside) in direct sunlight during the day of a super full moon.
This enhances the yang energy offered from the Sun's rays. Then the glass jar is left overnight to absorb the powerful yin energy that is offered from the light of the super full moon. This process energizes the essence while balancing it - think of it as a beautiful & complimentary energy infusion.
During the water imbuement, beautiful angelic music is played to offer even more healing vibrations to space in which the essences are created. Positive affirmations and the healing intentions of each crystal are also written and placed on the exterior of the glass jars.
Once all steps have been completed, the crystal is carefully removed and remaining water is the pure essence which has the same energetic frequency and metaphysical healing properties as the actual stone! This pure essence is then mixed with 50% grade vodka or brandy to preserve. These jars area sealed tight and are known as the mother batches. Then a small portion of essence from the mother batch is taken and diluted into a dark amber glass bottle filled with additional glacial spring water and grapefruit seed extract (acts as a natural preservative). This ensures the shelf life of the essence.
This process works on the principle of homeopathy. Diluting the mother batch essence does not minimize the energetic frequency of the water; it only takes away the majority of the alcohol content. Remember, water is programable and takes on the energy pattern of what it is mixed with. This new bottle is then surrounded by 7 clear quartz points to further amplify & charge the essence and it's intention. It is these essences that are then added by 2% total volume to the entire line of BodyCherish's Organic Beauty & Facial Ritual products. These high vibrational crystal essences are also added to the Bath Soak Salts and brand new Crystal Candles!

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.
