Why You Should Stop Waiting For Your Ex To Give You Closure

Stop looking for closure from the other person.

Be it a break-up, workplace bullying, friendship betrayal, or a family bust-up.

Closure does not lie in the hands of the other person.

Even if they admit that they were in the wrong.

Even if you get the illusive apology that you’ve been waiting for.

Even if they give you answers that you’ve been looking for.

Even if you are now on speaking terms.

Even if they beg to have you back in their life.

That sense of closure will still evade you.

Because closure doesn’t come from the other person.

It comes from you.

The closure comes from you deciding that you’re no longer going to hold onto the past and all the painful emotions.

Closure comes from choosing to not replays the situation and imaginary stories and ideals in your mind over and over again.

That closure will come when you decide that you are better than that and deserve more.

The closure comes when you see that you are not who they said you were.

Closure comes when you say “Fuck that shit. Enough is enough.

Because that closure you are seeking for, can only come from you.

And when it does that is the moment when you choose to…

  • Forgive
  • Let go
  • Heal
  • Delete
  • Block
  • Move on

This is when you finally take your power back and choose yourself.

Are you ready to give yourself the gift of closure?

Are you ready to use your breakup as a tool to elevate and transform into the woman you were created to be?

The Art Of Letting Go: 5 Tools To Help You

A breakup can be the most agonising experience.

The shattered dreams of living happily ever after.

The sense of betrayal that comes from feeling like you never really knew the person you fell in love with.

The tough decision of whether or not to let go and walk away.

The question of HOW to let go.

Feelings and decisions I know all too well. And, even with all the wisdom, mystical connections and healing at my disposal, I’ve struggled with it all too.

However…

Amongst the struggle there has been answers, healing and breakthroughs. Tools and wisdom that has supported me in moving on with a little more ease and grace each time. Today, I introduce you to my favourites.

energetically let go

1. Let go energetically
Everything is energy.  And your relationship and connection to your ex is no different. There is an energy cord that attaches you both to each other, especially if the relationship was intimate. When you breakup the cord remains attached which is why it can feel hard to just block, delete and move on. Unless that energy is removed you it continues to fill with energy. The bitterness, anger, yearning… it all sits there and builds up. Felt by the other person, even if they are clueless about energy and all things mystical. With that cord in place you remain connected to that person, as well as similar energies. Energy healing or cord removal sessions support you in letting go energetically. Working independently or with a trusted practitioner.

2. Bin it
Items have an energetic attachment too. That dress that you wore on the night that you met him that makes you feel all nostalgic and mushy when you look at it. The red lipstick that makes you feel like a bombshell whenever you wear it. Those black cardigan that make you feel frumpy and unseen whenever you wear it. Things have an energy too and can leave us feeling some kind of way. So, let go of anything that you are holding onto that reminds you of him, eg: his t-shirt, that coffee cup… You don’t have to bin it. You can give it back to him. Holding on to it reignites the feelings and memories. Keeps you locked in the energy, that time and relationship.

crystals for heart healing

3. Crystals
Crystals have their own little vibe and benefits. Each one resonating with each person in its own unique way. By working with crystals intentionally and intuitively you can help yourself and your body to release any heavy energy that you are holding onto. Bringing calm, clarity and connection to your own inner guidance. The obvious choice for any kind of relationship and breakup healing would be Rose Quartz because it vibrates at the frequency of unconditional love. Which means it will bring to your awareness anything within and without that is not in vibrational alignment with love, as well as your intention. However, do not discredit your intuition because you maybe guided to completely different crystals during your breakup. Ones you have never seen or heard of. For instance, I was also guided to Green Aventurine and Rhodochrosite when soulmate breakup healing. Neither of which were familiar to me. Your heart, body and soul know what you need to heal and open your heart to love. Give yourself permission to be guided.

4. Mind your words
Talking negatively about men and your ex is a big no, no. Sure you may have a phase or a moment when you don’t have anything nice to say. However, as the old saying goes: If you don’t have anything nice to say. Say nothing at all.” Talking negatively about your ex or men sets your mind on a tangent of negative thinking and creating images of negativity about love, men and relationships in your mind. Your negative words also ignite those BIG emotions such as: anger, rage, bitterness… Whilst there is nothing wrong with feeling what you feel. When they become your dominant feelings they also become your dominant energy and dominant thoughts. Do yourself a favour and snap yourself out of it.

breakup beauty and selfcare

5. Beauty & selfcare
It’s easy to let yourself go when going through a breakup. All you want to do is slob around in your joggers and eat cookies. Nothing wrong with that. You do you. HOWEVER, you can’t do that forever because there comes a point when it no longer feels good. Which is why it’s key to get in a healthy dose of beauty and selfcare. That doesn’t mean full blown makeup and nails everyday. Unless you want to. Although, applying makeup and painting your nails can actually be quite a beautiful, mindful experience. Beauty and selfcare looks different for everyone. The key is to do what feels good for you. And, you’ll know yourself that you feel heaps better when you are taking care of yourself and have made an effort. You feel better and, dare I say, more attractive and confident. As a result you carry yourself different and show up differently. And it feels good. Do it for you.

Where can you start when it comes to letting go and moving on with a little more grace? Literally turn this question over to yourself and allow yourself to be guided to what you need in this moment. If you need a little support then I am happy to help you with a 1:1 session or via one of the books in the Mystical Beauty collection.

Either way, you’ve got this!

Sending you love xx

Use These 4 Crystals To Banish Bad Breakup Vibes & Get Your Glow Back

I love crystals. I’ve loved them since discovering them as a little girl on a school trip to Chislehurst caves. And what’s not to love? They’re pretty and have amazing energy too. Working with your energy in a way that supports you in healing, amplifying, embodying or releasing energy. So, that you can feel better and, dare I say, more beautiful inside out.

Therefore, it was no surprise that I was drawn to crystals during a soulmate breakup many years ago. Perusing the many crystals in my local metaphysical shop I found myself instantly drawn to 3 crystals in particular. Trusting the pull that was coming from within I purchased them all and never looked back. Using each one with clear intention and in my daily routine. Resulting in heart healing, following through on more self care and finally being able to let go with more ease and grace than ever before.

That’s not to say that it was all plain sailing. I still had my regular Angelic Reiki sessions and my own shit to work through. However, blending crystals into my routine and practices, provided the healing and embodiment that I needed.

So, if you or someone you know is currently feeling the depths of emotions after a breakup, maybe its time to reach for Crystals alongside the red wine and ice cream.

CRYSTAL ETIQUETTE
Before working with your crystal you want to cleanse it of energy that doesn’t belong to you and that is not in alignment with you. This helps to reset the crystal’s energy. That way its more ready to attune to your energy.

You then want to sit with your crystal. This is a part that most people miss out because they want to dive straight into setting intentions. That’s all good. However, by holding the crystal in your hand, sitting with its energy and close your eyes. As you sit with your crystal notice how you feel and think about your intention. Allowing thoughts, words and images to come to you. You can do this at anytime. Although it’s good to do so before bed or in the morning as soon you wake up. This is because you can better access the intuitive mind and receive guidance from within.

“All Answers Lie Within”.

Now you have an idea how to get started, here are 4 crystals that have specific properties that help you through each step of a breakup.

Banish bad breakup vibes

ROSE QUARTZ – HEART & SELF-LOVE

We all know Rose Quartz as the stone of love. Mostly used as a talisman to attract new love into your life. Yet, it is a stone of unconditional love which is just about self-love and resonates with the heart chakra. Dissolving those barriers to love that you have put up around your heart.

3 WAYS TO DISCOVER WHERE TO START ON YOUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

People often ask me: “Where do I start on my spiritual journey.”

My response is always the same:

YOURSELF.

The point of awakening is to awaken to yourself. Your beauty. Your wisdom. Your gifts. Your talents. Your inner guidance. Your power.

Yet, what often see happening is that rather than looking inwards first, people look outwards.

They go to Facebook groups and ask the opinions of others. Only to bombarded with a hundred different opinions. Sometimes walking away feeling none the wiser.

The truth none of these people are you.

Only you can know where to begin on your spiritual awakening and what you need.

So, today I will share tips on how to decide, for yourself, where to start on your spiritual awakening journey.

INTERESTS

Where do your interests lie right now?

Is there an aspect of spirituality and wellness that you feel particularly drawn to?

This could be:

  • Crystals
  • Esoteric symbols
  • Candle magic
  • Angelic Reiki
  • Angels
  • Chakras
  • Numerology

And so forth…

Wherever your interest lies could be an indicator of where you are being guided. So, follow your interests. Have fun. See where it takes you.

SEEING

It’s quite likely that you have been seeing angel numbers, such as 1111, 333 or 1616. This is quite normal to experience this and there are hundreds of websites that give you the meanings. Simply find one that resonates with you or use your own awareness to ascertain what it means for you. I give tips on how to do that here.

However, are you seeing other things? Eg:

  • Sparkles of light surrounding and raining down on you like a shower of light
  • Visions of future events, Angels or loved ones in Heaven
  • Seeing Spirit

This could be an indication that it’s your psychic (clairvoyance) or mediumship abilities that you are opening up to. In which case, you may want to work with a mentor or read books on this area. In the case of the sparkles, it may be a sign of Angelic presence around you and you may want to explore this connection further.

NEED

What is it that you need right now?

It could be that there is a scenario playing out in your life that has been going on for ages and you cant move on. Therefore, you might want to work 1:1 with a Spiritual Advisor who can offer guidance, clarity and insight that you can use to help yourself, as well as make your own, informed decisions.

On the other hand, you have been holding onto pain of heartbreak and just want to heal. Which could indicate that you would benefit from working with a mentor or healer.

Maybe you are struggling with anxiety and really want to get a grip on this. Then this where you could start. Whilst it may feel that this isn’t spiritual, anxiety can be linked to chakra imbalances or past wounding that is coming to the surface. As someone who has experienced anxiety I found that there were some spiritual practices, tools and healing modalities that really helped me.

Awakening spirituality isn’t just about crystals, third eye and tarot. Its about YOU! As such, working on anxiety may be what you need. You’ll know, if it is.

By tuning into your own body and life experiences, as they are now, you will get a clear idea of what you need on your spiritual and self awakening journey.

So, start being aware of what is coming up. Allowing yourself to be an observer of your feelings and body. Rather than labelling them as negative or positive because your feelings and body will give you clues that support you in awakening, healing, aligning and thriving.

From there allow yourself to be guided to your teacher, be it a book, mentor, healer, psychic or someone else. Most importantly, use your own discernment when selecting the right teacher for you. Always trust your inner wisdom and guidance.

HOW YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE CAN INSPIRE YOUR ENERGY WELLNESS AND PROTECTION PRACTICE

So, what exactly do your skincare and energy protection routine have in common? More than you probably think.

At beauty school the first skincare routine you are taught is the basic 3-step routine that consists of:

Cleansing
Toning
Moisturising

In a nutshell…

  • Cleansing removes the dirt and debris from the skin.
  • Toning restores the skins ph balance and brings in the goodness.
  • Moisturising, essentially seals all of that goodness in.

When it comes to practising energy wellness and protection, at the simplest level you want to do the exact same thing.

  • Cleanse – Remove any negative or stagnant energy.
  • Tone – This is where you restore and refill with the energy that you want to embody and radiate.
  • Moisturise – You then seal in that “feel good” energy with a protection ritual, practice or tool.
Energy protection and skincare

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU PRACTISING THIS 3-STEP ROUTINE?

If you are cleansing your skin daily  – AM and PM. Then why not do the same with your energy?

As you go through your day you are interacting with people and life energetically. Exchanging energy. Absorbing energy. This is even happening as you scroll through Facebook and Instagram. Just think how much energy is being exchanged and absorbed there? LOADS! Some of the energy feels good. Some you don’t even notice. And sometimes the energy is just so dense that it literally drains you. Ever felt that way?

Therefore, practising this basic energy routine will be really beneficial in keeping your energy “fresh”. Also at a level where you:

  • Feel good
  • Feel energised
  • Feel aligned

Which also supports you in being able to manifest, look good, feel good and slay your days.

If you are really sensitive to energy, eg: empath, then having an energy routine like this one could be an actual game changer.

Why?

It protects your energy.

It also helps you to become more aware of your energy and how the energy of different people, places and experiences effect you. As such, you can choose how you want to interact with them, if at all. Making it a really powerful way to own your energy. Rather than the energy of others and all around you, owning you.

Energy wellness and care

WHAT TOOLS, RITUALS AND PRACTICES SHOULD I USE?

A lot of people tend to jump on the most popular energy protection tools. For example, Sage used to be mega popular for cleansing. So everybody started jumping on that. HOWEVER, not every tool, ritual or practice is effective for every person or situation. Which is why its important to choose what resonates with YOU.

When you’re choosing skincare products you consider your skin type, the ingredients and specific skin conditions. So, that the products you choose and use are right for YOUR skin. It’s a similar principle when selecting tools, rituals and practices for energy protection.

Choose tools, practices and rituals you feel guided too. Your own inner guidance, Angels and
Guides will lead you to what is most applicable to you at the right time. Trust that wisdom that comes from within.

Your environment plays a part too. If you live with others or need protection at work then lighting incense and wafting Sage around isn’t necessarily going to work. Whilst working with Spirit, crystals, intentional jewellery or prayer may be more effective.

Your own tastes, likes, dislikes and sensitivities. Incenses may not be your thing. Amethyst may not vibe with your energy. You may be sensitive to certain smells. Knowing yourself and honouring yourself will support you in making sound decisions about what to work with.

Also, keep in mind that things change. You change. Your energy changes. Therefore, you might need to adapt, tweak, add more or do less at different times. By being aware of your own energy you can begin to make the necessary changes rather than sticking rigidly to what worked in the past or what works for your friend.

Do what works for you and allow yourself to be intuitively guided.

I hope that this guide has given you some food for thought and helps you with taking care of your own energy.

3 REASONS WHY ENERGY PROTECTION ISN’T WORKING FOR YOU

I get it, you’re trying everything you can to protect your energy. Yet, you can still feel that drain your energy, the negative vibes and tiredness. Its affecting your mood, energy levels and health. And, quite frankly, you are sick and tired of being sick and tired.

If that’s you then, trust me, I hear you. I’ve been there before and know how frustrating it can be. However, I’ve also come out the other side having learned and applied simple hacks that supported me in protecting, as well as owning my energy. Now you can do the same.

1. You’re the Energy Vampire

Let’s start with the hard pill to swallow first.

We all experience times when our own energy is off-key. Leading us to be defensive and perceive negativity at every turn. Sometimes this is a protection mechanism after having been hurt, let down, used and abused so many times. However, the longer you hold onto the energy of the past the more it will drag you down. Whilst bringing you into energetic resonance with anything and anyone of a low vibration.

Mystical Beauty Energy Hack: Clean up your side of the street. Which means clean up your energy. This could be through visualising, meditation, crystal healing, Angelic Reiki, EFT, or any inner work you need to do to heal from the past. Prioritise working on yourself first.

2. You’re just focusing on the spiritual

You have to blend the spiritual with the practical. So, whilst it’s great to have all of these rituals and crystals that you use to protect your energy, you still have to do the work.

Doing all of the protection work and having energy healing sessions is counter productive you are still going back to the same habits, negative thinking, toxic workplace or narcissistic partner. When you do this you are literally locking yourself back into that energy and getting trapped in a cycle that doesn’t serve you.

Mystical Beauty Energy Hack: Get real and practical about how to change your situation. You know the root or the key trigger in your situation. Brainstorm ideas to move on or ask for the help you need from relevant professionals.  Look at where you can establish new, stronger and healthier boundaries. You deserve to be happy, loved and safe.

Setting healthy boundaries is a form of self-love, as well as energy wellness and protection. Teach others how to treat you by deciding what you will and will not accept.

3. You’re only protecting

A simple mistake that a lot of us make. I did for years and its when you just focus on protection. Anytime you get in a situation where the vibe feels off-key you quickly protect yourself. When you go into an environment where the women are throwing you shade and jealous vibes, you activate your mirror ball of protection. However, as you go from one person to another you are not clearing the energy.

This is where the issues begin because you are basically sealing in the energy with each new layer of protection. That energy will build up and you will feel it.

Mystical Beauty Energy Hack: A simple 3-step energy routine that you can practise daily involves cleansing, grounding and then protecting your energy. This process allows you to release the old, embody the new and protect it. Helping to prevent that build up of energy.

I hope that these energy wellness tips are helpful to you. Be sure to stick around for more tips, practice and products to help you protect your energy. With much love.

Orange Is The New Black

The colour orange is definitely making waves in the world of nails at the moment. With so many embracing the summer vibes and painting their nails with their favourite shade of orange.

What Is The Evil Eye? And Why You Should Be Wearing One

I came across the Evil Eye back in 2009. At the time, I was struggling to protect my energy against the negativity, backstabbing and jealousy. So, I was looking into ways to protect my energy and workspace. As such, I started researching protection tools and practices. My Guides were clearly guiding me as I came across a variety of tools, including meditations, Angels, crystals and the Evil Eye.

Using my intuition to be guided to those that would be best for me, my energy and situation, I created my own protection toolkit. With the Evil Eye talisman being a simple addition I made to my crystal protection bracelets, in the form of a little talisman charm.

I noticed the difference within a week or two and, within a matter of weeks my colleagues started to comment on how much I had changed.You see, whilst the negativity in the environment and from key persons was still apparent, it’s impact that it had on me had dissipated. Instead of being defeated and feeling deflated, I felt:

  • Confident
  • Empowered
  • Focused
  • Grounded and safe in my own energy

I was convinced that this was down to the way in which I had been protecting and shielding my energy. Also, having my Evil Eye with me during the day in a visible way helped to amplify the energy of the intention. This because every time I looked at it I was reminded that I was being protected from negativity.

So, what is the Evil Eye?
The Evil Eye dates back as far back as the Ancient Greeks. With the Eye being depicted as a symbol of protection, all seeing and truth revealing by other cultures and civilisations, namely the Ancient Egyptians (Eye of Horus).

It is believed that the Evil Eye is a malevolent glare from someone who wishes you harm or is envious of you for whatever reason. By wearing an Evil Eye talisman you can protect yourself from this negativity.

Today, designers such as Michael Kors who design beautiful Evil Eye jewellery. Whilst celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Meghan Markle have all been spotted wearing the Evil Eye.

Why You Need To Wear An Evil Eye

An Evil Eye talisman is ideal for spiritual women and girls who are working on manifesting, or working on their spiritual/personal development. This is because the Evil Eye protects and shields you from negativity, and jealousy that you may not even be aware.

I mean let’s be fair, a lot of us have found ourselves in situations where we have been betrayed by family or people that we thought were our friends. People who were chatting about us negatively or simply not wishing us well. All of which is an energy that can affect you eg: slowing down your progress, blocking you from moving forward or leaving you feel out of sorts.

Intentionally, working with an Evil Eye talisman brings protection for you and your energy. Helping you to own your energy and keep things moving in a positive direction.

Evil Eye bracelet and Rose Quartz Love Bracelets for women
Pair your Evil Eye with crystals or affirmation bracelets to amplify your intention to the Universe.

How To Wear Your Evil Eye

There are many ways to wear an Evil Eye talisman, including carrying a small Evil Eye stone, jewellery, nail art, key chains and clothing.

Personally, I find it most effective to wear an Evil Eye in the form of a bracelet or nail art. This is because each time I see the Evil Eye I am reminded:

  • That you are protected
  • To say a prayer/positive affirmation for protection
  • To cleanse your energy
  • To refresh your protection

(You’ll know intuitively what you need in the moment. Lean into that inner guidance and wisdom.)

All of which amplifies that intention to be and feel protected, whilst recognising the power that lies within me. Which is why I added the Evil Eye bracelet and nail art to my online boutique to remind women and girls to own their energy. Reminding them that their energy is sacred and to protect it. Inspiring then to awaken and thrive in style.

PURPLE: CROWN CHAKRA

Lets begin with: What are chakras?

Essentially they are energy centres inside and outside the body. Energy flows through these centres and around the body. However, energy expands, shrinks and become stagnant depending on what’s going on within and around us. Too little or too much energy can lead to imbalances that manifest physically, mentally or emotionally.

There are 7 main chakras in the body and they are:

Root Chakra – Red
Sacral Chakra – Orange
Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow
Heart Chakra – Geeen
Throat Chakra – Blue
Third Eye Chakra – Indigo
Crown Chakra – Purple

Each one corresponding to a particular colour, as indicated above. The chakras also correspond to different body parts too. Which is useful to know because some imbalances in the chakras can manifest themselves as ailments or pain the body.

So, today is the final blog post in the Chakra Beauty series. Admittedly, it’s a bit late as I’ve been unwell and only just on the mend.

Today, it is all about the Crown Chakra.

Location: At the top of the head
Colour: Purple
Resonance: Spiritual wisdom, connection to Divine and clarity
Physical symptoms: Headaches
Crown Chakra imbalanced: Loneliness, materialistic, spiritual disconnection, confused or lack of direction/joy/purpose
Crown Chakra balance: Spiritual connection, see and appreciate beauty around you or peace within

The Crown Chakra is the 7th chakra and is associated with your connection to the Divine/Universe. When in balance you can expect to have and feel more connected to the Divine, as well as Higher Self. Increasing that sense of feeling more peaceful from within. Clarity of mind and not feeling so disconnected, bored and unfulfilled in life, is also associated with a more balanced chakra. However, when imbalanced that feeling of boredom, confusion of the mind and feeling disconnected is common. There is also that possibility of feeling really lethargic or experiencing trouble sleeping at night. With this usually being associated with those who are working in very toxic, fast-paced environments.

COLOUR
Purple is the colour that resonates with the Crown Chakra. However, the colour white and silver can also resonate with the Crown Chakra too. The colour purple is known as the colour of royalty, spirituality and wealth. Whilst bringing the colour into your life, maybe through makeup, clothing or nails can support you in balancing your Crown Chakra.

CRYSTALS
Crystals are also linked to the different chakras in your body. You can wear your chose Crown Chakra crystal, hold it during meditation or have it in your space with the intention of healing the Crown Chakra. You can also wear crystals in the form of jewellery too. Crystals that are associated with the Crown Chakra include: Amethyst, Clear Quartz and Selenite.

EXPAND YOUR MIND
Boredom and a cluttered mind are linked to an imbalanced Crown Chakra. So, choose to expand your mind and work on your personal/spiritual development by reading, taking courses/workshops or listen to podcast. In doing so, you are challenging beliefs, perceptions and perspectives that you may be holding that are hindering you. The more you learn the more you expand your mind.

MEDITATION
Bring clarity and calm to your mind through meditation. Whilst also helping yourself to enhance your connection to the Divine, as well as your Higher Self. Overtime, this might lead to increase inner guidance and just feeling more connected from above. A meditation that I recommend is The Guided Chakra Cleanse. It works through all of the chakras too. Not just the Crown Chakra.

SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Building a relationship with Spirit is a job that only you can do. It requires dedication and practice too. By developing your own spiritual practice you enhance your connection with Spirit. This practice is personal to you and may include a dedicate space, like an altar. In that space and in your practice include practices and tools that resonate with you, eg: candles, crystals, tarot/Oracle/Angel cards, meditation and/or prayer.

A meditation that I recommend is The Guided Chakra Cleanse. It works through all of the chakras too. Not just the Crown Chakra.

INDIGO: THIRD EYE CHAKRA

Lets begin with: What are chakras?

Essentially they are energy centres inside and outside the body. Energy flows through these centres and around the body. However, energy expands, shrinks and become stagnant depending on what’s going on within and around us. Too little or too much energy can lead to imbalances that manifest physically, mentally or emotionally.

There are 7 main chakras in the body and they are:

Root Chakra – Red
Sacral Chakra – Orange
Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow
Heart Chakra – Geeen
Throat Chakra – Blue
Third Eye Chakra – Indigo
Crown Chakra – Purple

Each one corresponding to a particular colour, as indicated above. The chakras also correspond to different body parts too. Which is useful to know because some imbalances in the chakras can manifest themselves as ailments or pain the body.

Over the next few weeks I’ll sharing more about each Chakra in turn. Also sharing beauty tips and routines, aligned with each chakra, to support you to also embrace your own natural beauty.

Today, it is all about the Third Eye Chakra.

Location: Just above and in-between brows
Colour: Indigo
Resonance: Intuition,wisdom, vision/clairvoyance, imagination
Physical symptoms: Head pain, especially in centre of forehead or throbbing.
Third Eye Chakra imbalanced: Ignore intuition, lacking creativity or imagination, dreamy or disorganised
Third Eye Chakra balance: Intuitive, clear vision, objective and good self awareness

The Chakra that everybody who gets into spirituality seems to be want to be able to open. Wanting to be able to see the truth and receive clear visions. However, forcing your Third Eye chakra to open can create a whole load of issues. Just like opening up a Pandora’s Box when you are not ready to see what is hidden inside. Therefore, it is always best to allow it to open naturally and work on this chakra daily in order to cleanse, balance and harmonise it. Allowing yourself the opportunity to receive the guidance and visions that you are ready to receive at the right time.

When balanced you are more able to stay in the present moment, as well as remain focused. As opposed to living in either the past or the present and letting the mind constantly wander from one thing to the next. It’s also associated with hahinv a clear vision for yourself and the direction of your life. Therefore, having somewhere and something to aim for. Maybe even really putting into practice using your imagination to bring into fruition. Being a spiritual chakra, it also relates to having spiritual vision, such as clairvoyanxe and being able to see the truth, as well as the bigger picture.

When out of balance you may find that you find it a change to “trust the vibes and visions that you get”. Therefore, when you receive intuitive hunches you may be more likely to second guess or dismiss them altogether. It is also possible that you find yourself lacking in imagination and creativity. Leaning more on the side of using the faculties of your Conscious Mind, such as over analysing and rational thinking. Frequent headaches and just not living in the world are signs of Third Eye imbalance. Not to mention more serious issues that require medical attention.

COLOUR
Wearing Indigo or utilising the Third Eye symbol are a simple way that you can support, cleanse or balance your Third Eye Chakra on a daily basis. I found that doing this alongside the deeper work of energy or psychic development work to be really beneficial way in self-healing, as well as developing psychic abilities. See the image below for the ways that you can nail it.

CRYSTALS
Crystals are also linked to the different chakras in your body. You can carry them with you, wear as jewellery, hold them during meditation, place over your Third Eye chakra during meditation. Even simply having a Third Eye chakra crystal around you when doing psychic development or intuitive development work may prove beneficial. Two of my personal favourites linked to the Third Eye are Lapis Lazuli and Amethyst.

MEDITATION/VISUALISATION
Meditation helps to increase your spiritual awareness and calm the mind, so that Divine guidance can be received. You can blend this with visualisation too. Visualising your Third Eye Chakra as a spinning wheel of Indigo light. As it spins visualise the dense energy being dissolved and transmuted into light. If you prefer to do a guided meditation then my recommendation would be The Guided Chakra Cleanse. It works through all of the chakras too. Not just the Third Eye Chakra.

Add a mudra to your meditation, like this one for the Third Eye Chakra. Mudras are believed to increase the flow of life force energy. They’re a good way to amplify and direct the e energy of your intention.

BLUE: THROAT CHAKRA

Lets begin with: What are chakras?

Essentially they are energy centres inside and outside the body. Energy flows through these centres and around the body. However, energy expands, shrinks and become stagnant depending on what’s going on within and around us. Too little or too much energy can lead to imbalances that manifest physically, mentally or emotionally.

There are 7 main chakras in the body and they are:

Root Chakra – Red
Sacral Chakra – Orange
Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow
Heart Chakra – Geeen
Throat Chakra – Blue
Third Eye Chakra – Indigo
Crown Chakra – Purple

Each one corresponding to a particular colour, as indicated above. The chakras also correspond to different body parts too. Which is useful to know because some imbalances in the chakras can manifest themselves as ailments or pain the body.

Over the next few weeks I’ll sharing more about each Chakra in turn. Also sharing beauty tips and routines, aligned with each chakra, to support you to also embrace your own natural beauty.

Today, it is all about the Throat Chakra.

Location: Centre of neck at the Throat
Colour: Blue
Resonance: Communication, truth and self-expression
Physical symptoms: Tension in shoulders or neck, nose, throat, jaw, teeth or thyroid
Throat Chakra imbalanced: Inability to or fear of speaking your truth, writer’s block,
Throat Chakra balance: Speak your truth, follow through on your word, especially around purpose and career, ability to communicate clearly and listen

The Throat Chakra is the fifth chakra and is located in the centre of the neck where the throat can be found. This chakra focuses upon expression and communication. When balanced you are confident in and able to speak your truth with love, as well as express yourself clearly. With this also relating to your ability to speak for truth and be honest with yourself too. Therefore, when balanced you embrace your own individuality, quirkiness and uniqueness. Having a real sense of personal expression that supports you in speaking up, as well as following your purpose and vocation. Doing so, without fear of what others say or think, especially when in harmony with the Sacral Chakra.

When imbalanced you may feel shy, inhibited or fearful of speaking your truth or being heard. Fear of judgement from others and worrying about what other people may think tending to pre occupy your mind. The inability to listen to others or hear their point of view, especially when it opposes yours is also related to an imbalance in this chakra. Keeping in mind that listening is a key communication skill. Also, you may find that imbalance in the throat chakra can lead to be being a gossip queen/king and being overly critical of yourself or others.

MEDITATION
Meditation that focuses on the balancing, harmonizing and activating the Throat Chakra is a great way to help with any imbalances. You can blend this with breathing techniques or chanting. Using your voice through chanting is a great way to clear your throat chakra and basically find your voice again. A meditation that I recommend is The Guided Chakra Cleanse. It works through all of the chakras too. Not just the Throat Chakra.

COLOUR
Blue is the colour that resonates with the Throat Chakra. Blue relates to communication, truth, peace, calm and serenity. Therefore it is a really good choice for interviews or any kind of public speaking. Paint your nails in your favourite blue shade or paint an accept nail in that shade with a nail art design. See below for idea

CRYSTALS
Crystals are also linked to the different chakras in your body. You can carry them with you, hold them during meditation, placed on the Throat Chakra or have them closeby when getting ready to go out in order to amplify the energy of your intention. Also giving you a little reminder of your intention to activate or bring balance to your Throat chakra. Crystals associated with this chakra are: Turquoise, Sodalite and Aquamarine.
