3 Easy Ways To Clear The Energy In Your Home

3 Easy Ways To Clear The Energy In Your Home

Everything is made of energy, and that energy builds up and creates stagnation in your home. You already clear your home of physical clutter every now and then—so why not work on clearing the energy in your home as well?

Removing the stagnate and chaotic energy in your home will make your space feel more expansive, lighter, brighter, and more creative. Here’s how I do it:

It’s essential to clear the energy in your home when:

During any major life transition (like a new job, relationship, or pets/ babies etc.): 
Clearing out that old energy creates space for the new energy these things bring.

After any kind of argument: You said things and they said things. 
Now that it’s over, it's time to clear the air - literally.

When you’ve been sick: Along with the stress of not feeling amazing, the physical condition
of being sick carries that energy into the space around you.

Anytime you're in a funk or having a bad day: Negative energy in your home may
be feeding those feelings.

3 easy ways to clear the energy in your home

  1. Sage your space - Grab your favorite sage and use it in every room of your home. Create a good decree to clear the energy and transmute it to love and light. 

  2. Use crystals around your home - Crystals are gifts from the earth that carry various beneficial vibrational properties. Two awesome stones to place around your home to clear energy are black tourmaline and hematite.

  3. Give your whole space a fresh, lemony scent - The smell of lemon is naturally invigorating and uplifting and the frequency is all about clearing and joy. Here are some ways to use lemons around your home:

    • Simmer lemon peels in a pot on the stove and let the steam spread joy and energy all around.

    • Use your favorite Seed To Seal oils in diffusers in every room in your home.

    • Put some fresh lemon slices on a small plate and strategically arrange them in each room for the day.

      (Sage, lavender, and frankincense essential oils can also be great at clearing and grounding your space.

What Is A Life Coach and Why Do I Need One?

What is a Life Coach?
"A Life Coach is someone who helps you reach your desired goal(s) and guides you through your personal challenges."

She is your sparring partner. She will hold you in The Light of your Victory and help you overcome your challenges. She asks lot's of questions to be able to see your perspective, and then possibly offer a new perspective from a different angle, for your consideration. 

Your Life Coach will encourage and challenge you to take steps required to reach your goal. 

A Life Coach Does Not:
  • Tell you how 'you should' fix a problem.
  • Tell you exactly what to do.
  • Tell you that you must do it 'their way'.
  • Do it for you.

Benefits of Life Coaching
Through better self-understanding you will find your life purpose much quicker and easier than trying to figure it out on your own.
You will become close to your inner-self, and create a relationship with your own inner-knowing.
You will be able to identify when a limiting belief or old paradigm surfaces AND you'll know what to do about it.
You will gain more self-awareness and freedom of choice over how you respond to external triggers, rather your old knee-jerk reactions.

Therapy is perfect for working through a medical or mental health diagnosis.

Do I Need A Life Coach?
We hire teachers for learning a new skill or trade, learning a new sport or even take a class to learn a new hobby. So why not hire a life-coach that shows you how your brain works and can give you deeper insights into your own patterns, paradigms, and limiting beliefs.

Often times we are not able to see beyond our own perceptions unless we enlist a little help. If you find yourself searching 'for more' or want to achieve a goal and are struggling - a life-coach is the perfect answer.

A good life coach can lead you closer to to yourself and this will help you create a morel fulfilled life. We provide you with tools and techniques to try and strategies to use and guidance to find your own path.  

12 Reasons To Invest In A Life Coach

7 Ways You Can Help Your Child Have A Good Experience Going Back To School This Year

7  Ways You Can Help Your Child Have A Good Experience Going Back To School This Year
This month brings an end to the summer fun and for many of us, back-to-school time. This year is no doubt going to be different as some of us will participate in homeschooling for the first time, some will do remote learning online, and some will do in-person learning with new rules and requirements. There will be lots of adjusting and lots of processing of BIG emotions.
When our kids experience anxiety, it’s natural for us parents to go into protection mode. We may attempt to solve problems for them, help avoid triggers, and/or try to engineer a worry-free environment. While there are certain accommodations that teachers are going to try to implement to help our kids in the classroom, it’s a good idea to slow down the daily pace for the first month or so to decrease overall stress for anxious children. We can't protect their kids from experiencing anxiety, but we can help them learn to manage their anxiety.

Set Clear Expectations

Setting clear expectations and helping your child create appropriate benchmarks to meet those expectations teaches your child that she/he can work through anxious feelings and manage their anxiety. It might also be helpful to proceed at a slower pace right now and make some accommodations as kids go back to school with all the changes that are likely happening where you are.

Many teachers and other school personnel may be wearing masks, as well as other students. There might be some separation of the desks or other new and different things happening in class and during school time. Recess and lunch time will look different. EVERYTHING will be shifting around here and there so having clear expectations helps kids feel like they have some kind of control over their environment.

Let Your Child Process Their Emotions With You...don't try to fix it for them mama.

No kid ever stopped worrying because mom said, “Don’t worry!”, or “Relax!”. In fact, it's really helpful for kids to be able to voice their concerns out loud so they can process through them. Give your child uninterrupted time with you each day to vent worries and brainstorm solutions together.

As parents, we hate to see our kids struggle, but fixing everything for them or finding their solutions for them, doesn't do them any good. Giving them a chance to come up with their own solutions will set them for success and teach them great problem solving skills.

Talk About The Elephant In The Room

It won't help if you try to avoid their big emotions, or things that might trigger those emotions. If your child gets nervous or fearful around dogs, for example, crossing the street every time you come across a dog on a walk, or staying away from all dogs will only validate that anxious thought. It sends the message that all dogs are dangerous, and you might not even realize it. It’s better to desensitize your child to triggers of anxiety by taking small steps. Try looking at pictures of different breeds online and talking about what feelings come up or how cute they might be or whatever comes up for your child. Maybe you could watch dogs at play at a dog park (from a safe distance) or even ask to visit with a calm, older dog of a friend. By taking small steps, kids can learn to work through their fears and worries. And the more we teach them to do these things for themselves, the more empowered they feel. 

Flip The Script

When we get into an anxious or negative thought cycle, we become overwhelmed because it causes feelings of helplessness. This same thing happens with our children. Getting stuck in the “what if” and “I can't” mindset can cause what I call black-and-white thinking. When you're in this mindset, things are either fantastic or we're all going to hell in a hand-basket. There is no in-between and it can go from amazing to the worst case scenario in 10 seconds flat. Creating time to work on positive re-framing of things empowers your child to feel more in control and learn to do this for themselves any time they need to -whether you're there or not. It looks something like this:

  1. Name a worry, or negative thought floating around in your brain right now.
  2. What is the thought telling you about yourself or the situation?
  3. Let’s break it down and see if that thought is 100% right.
  4. How can we take that thought and shift it into a positive thought?

For example, your child tells you that they are afraid that the kids in their class don’t like them. Why do they feel this way? Because a girl in class laughed when they didn’t know the answer, and now they are scared that the other kids in class think they're dumb. Help them break down the reality of the situation: “I answer questions in class every day. I sit with friends at lunch and I play with my friends at recess.” Now we can shift the situation: “It hurt my feelings when the girl laughed, but I have other good friends and people who like me in my class.”

Help Them Build a Coping Kit

If you want to empower your child to work through their worries on their own, help them learn a variety of coping skills and give them other tools to put into their 'tool box'. Practice these tools with them during times that they are calm and all is well. That way, when they begin to feel scared, anxious, etc, they already have the muscle memory in place and can easily put their tools into practice.

These are some that we use in my house:

  •  Deep breathing to recenter yourself and slow down your heart rate and breathing.
  •  Shift your attention by asking yourself what you see, smell, taste, touch, hear. It sounds something like this, “I can see the birds in trees around me and flying in the sky. I can hear their pretty songs as they perch on the branches. I can smell the warm summer air and freshly cut grass. I can taste the hard candy I just put in my mouth. It's smooth against my tongue. I can feel the touch of the seams of my jeans and how the stitches are bumpy in the edges of the material.”  
  • Stress ball, or even hitting a pillow when energies are too high and them need to move their body to get the energy out of them. 
  • Write it out in a journal and then either burn it or keep it for later to go back and see progress. Remember, that their journal is private and sacred. They deserve to know and trust that no one will read it – not even you.
  •  Shift  the thoughts from lack and negative into positive and empowering. “I can't tie my shoes yet. I'm so dumb!” can be shifted to, “I am learning to tie my shoes and the more I practice, the easier it will be. Pretty soon, I'll tie my shoes like a pro!”
  • Get help from an adult – Allow them to come to you with their big emotions. It's not our job to immediately begin trying to solve their problem or lecture them with what they 'should be doing' etc. I know we've been taught that's what makes a great parent, but it's actually not helpful at all and is actually very dis-empowering. Allow them to tell you their worries and then help them find ways to work through it using the tools above or any others that you find work for you.     

Basic Foundations

Your anxious child doesn’t need to play every sport and attend every party. Allow him to create his world in a way that feels safe and empowering – even if it's different than what you would do. Remember, your child is not an extension of you. He is his own person with his own thoughts, needs, and emotions. Below are some good foundational things that will help a fearful/anxious child feel safe and in control of their life.

  • Get enough sleep and be consistent. Going to bed and getting up at the same times every day really help anxious kids who need more routine-type structure than others. 
  • Eating healthy foods will help fuel their body and mind. Supplements, vitamins, minerals, and essential oils will help balance and regulate energy levels and focus.

  • Drink enough water throughout the day. Most kids don't drink nearly enough water and are dehydrated most of the time.

  • Create downtime to decompress. Create time to calm down and relax before     bedtime so they can transition into it easier.

  •  Allow them to move their body and be outdoors as much as possible. Fresh air and sunshine are so good for all of us. Did you know that fresh air and sunshine actually shift the chemicals in your brain and help you feel more centered and happy? Pretty cool huh!

  •  Meditation is a fantastic tool for kids to learn to regulate their emotions. They learn to feel more connected with the earth and their inner knowing and feel more empowered in decision making.

Empathize Often

Anxiety can be paralyzing for young children. When kids feel completely overwhelmed by anxious thoughts, they struggle to do everyday things like attend school or go to soccer practice; they struggle to focus and follow directions. Anxious children even avoid fun things like play dates and movies because they're afraid of getting even more overwhelmed – even though they might really want to go. It’s important to empathize with your child. This normalizes what they're going through and helps them understand that they aren’t alone, and you will guide them through it. For a child to know that their parent deals with anxious emotions and fears, helps them see that it's okay and they can control it when they see you control it.

Final tip: Take care of your own needs too. Parenting an anxious child can be all-consuming. Between interrupted sleep and constant worries, child anxiety can take a toll on you too. Make sure to prioritize your own health needs and take care of you first so you can be fully present and help your child learn to manage their anxiety. Yes, you need to take care of you FIRST so you're in a good place to be able to support them.

A Healthy Immune System Is Important – Now More Than Ever Before!

Your immune system is an intricate network of cells, organs and other things, that band together to defend your body against foreign invaders – like germs, viruses and bacteria.

A healthy immune system protects you by creating a barrier that stops those invaders from getting into your body. If one does happen to slip by, it starts to produce white blood cells and other chemicals that attack and destroy it.

If your immune system can’t get rid of the invaders before they start to reproduce, it simply revs up it's engines even more to destroy them as they multiply. Your skin, lungs, digestive tract, saliva and tears are also all involved in the immune response to keep you feeling great and functioning above the wellness line.

What You Bring Into Your Home Is Important

Many of the products on store shelves claim to boost or support immunity, but reading the ingredient labels will quickly show you which advertising is just trying to take your money. The toxins in every day items like room deodorizers, disinfectant sprays, household cleaners, and even hand sanitizer will lower your immune system dramatically, and can even cause more issues.

YOU are the gatekeeper of your home. YOU can control what you allow into your life and the lives of your family. Learn to read the labels of the things you purchase and  begin to find other resources that are healthier alternatives. Your health and your family's health is worth it!

Healthy Ways To Strengthen Your Immune System    

  • Don't smoke.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables. 
  • Exercise regularly   
  • Essential oils 
  • Maintain a healthy weight. 
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.  
  • Get adequate sleep  
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.  
  • Try to minimize stress. 
  • My antioxidant super juice
  • Meditation

7 Benefits of Practicing Meditation

7 Benefits of Practicing Meditation
Meditation has been around for centuries. People have used it for religious purposes and cultural reasons. There are as many forms of meditation as there are practices. The art and practice of meditation is one where you allow yourself and, most importantly, your mind to relax, rest, and rejuvenate itself. You take time to practice the art of breathing, slowing down your mind and coming back to center. Let’s take a look at some of the other benefits of Meditation.

1. Decreases Anxiety

There’s a neural pathway that leads to the part of our brains in which we need to determine whether or not we are in real, imminent danger. For some, those connections are so strong we feel we are in danger when we actually are not. This has been called fight, flight, or freeze.

When taking on the practice of meditating, this connection can be shifted to relax when we are actually not in real danger. Our brains have many parts, and the part that assesses reasoning is strengthened by meditating, while the irrational fear pathway is adjusted to know the difference.

This becomes a win/win situation.

 2. Allows You to Become More Emphatic

During meditation, the part of your brain that is responsible for showing more compassion is activated. Scientific studies show that compassion and empathy are more active when someone meditates. Having more compassion is never a bad thing.

3.Increased Focus

One of the biggest bonuses and benefits is to help you choose your focus and to pull your thoughts into the present moment. How often do you catch yourself having a busy brain and feel as though you are not able to reel it back in? Meditation also helps you to keep focused long after you’re done.

4. Improves Memory

Meditation activates a certain part of the brain which helps to decrease distractions and increase memory recall. If you’ve ever walked into another room and wondered why the heck you went in there, this practice might give your memory a boost. So, the next time you walk into a room, you might just remember why you went in there in the first place.

5. Unlocks Creativity

If you’ve ever gotten stuck on creating a new idea or had the experience of writer’s block, you might want to clear your mind for a while and a quick meditation can support that, it has a way of unlocking and unleashing creative potential. In just about any job scenario, creativity is a useful asset. Whether you are a sales and marketing manager or a writer, a little creativity goes a long way.

6. Can Make You Smile More

People who meditate are shown to be more positive and upbeat. It has a way of calming and soothing the mind and heart. When your mind and heart are calm, your spirit is bound to follow. The mind-body-heart connection is a powerful bond.

7. Improving Sleep

Hundreds of thousands of people suffer greatly from insomnia and take sleep aids in order to assist them in getting a decent night’s sleep. No matter what they do it seems they keep tossing and turning and sleep just won’t come to them. They wake up in the morning feeling groggy and irritated, not to mention that without proper sleep it’s easy to get rundown or even sick. Meditation can help improve the quality of your sleep and make it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
