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.

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.

NYE MESSAGES FROM THE GODDESS

GODDESS ENERGY MESSAGES: Oonagh and Coventina

So, you made through one heck of a year. That in itself deserves a standing ovation.

The Goddesses bring the message of not being like the rest of them and ending another year by the following the crowd. Whilst everyone else is……

  • Posting about how 2021 is going to be their year (Did they not say that in 2019 about 2020?) 
  • Sharing their goals/visions all over social media
  • Complaining

Dare to be different.

Follow in the guidance of Oonagh and take the time to pause. Journal on the learning and blessings that 2020 has brought you. Resist the temptation to jump straight into goal setting and visioning without actually taking stock of where you are or where you have been.

One thing that people often do when it comes to New Years Resolutions and manifesting is that they go all in without really looking accepting where they are at. Bringing into their intentions all of the doubt, worry, fear and uncertainty that has been standing in their way.

“Don’t be like the rest of them darling.” – Coco Chanel

Heed the guidance of Coventina to release what is not in alignment. What feelings, habits, thoughts, identity and behaviours has the Full Moon in Cancer illuminated? Who in your life has it shone a spotlight on to reveal their true colours or just the fact that you are no longer a vibrational match for each other?

Rather than clinging and resisting give yourself permission to let go. Use a ritual like the one that I previously shared in my Full Moon guide or in my energy protection ebook. Giving yourself permission and safe to let go. So that you move forward and create with a clear slate.

If you that energy has already manifested as tension, pain or tightness in your body use the power of your breath to release it. Breathing white light into that area with the intention of transmuting, moving the energy through your body.

I was drawn to add the Mother Mary choker necklace to this image because she brings that nurturing and loving energy. A Divine reminder to honour yourself: Body, mind, spirit, heart and soul. Also reminding you to call in and imbue the space within with the energy that you want to receive. In this case the energies of love and compassion, as represented by the Rose Quartz. Whilst the symbol of the Dove in Oonaghs card brings in the energy of peace.

In being drawn back to Coventina I’m drawn to the waves/the ocean behind and around her. She is a Goddess who resonates with the element of water. With water being symbolic of emotions. Notice how the waves are crashing around her and yet she continues to stay centre stage, beautiful, vulnerable and balanced at the same time.

I am told that this relates to staying calm and honouring yourself, irrespective of what may be going around you. Collectively the energy is intense and temperamental. People are scared, anxious and going through their own stuff. However, you do not need to take on the energy of the collective as your own and, if you resonate with the term empath then know that your sensitivity can be your superpower. You just need to learn how to honour, work with and protect your magic.

The other message from the waves is that it’s ok to feel and experience your emotions. Experiencing and feeling anger, disappointment, sadness, resentment or any of those emotions that are often labelled as being “low vibe”, is not a crime.

All emotions are valid.

Pushing them aside and suppressing them often creates even more problems. Manifesting in anxiety, illness and the like.

These emotions are not bad. They do not necessarily lower your vibration IF you choose to work through and transmute them appropriately.

Essentially, the Goddesses are reminding you to take care of yourself first. Which will no doubt be a theme for 2021. A year that vibrates at the energy of a 5 which is all about CHANGE.


So, how can you show up for yourself on NYE and over the weekend? What have you learned from 2020 that will support you in creating peace and harmony from within? How can you practise self care in a way that allows you to honour all of your feels? Let me know below.

BAD VIBES DON’T GO WITH MY OUTFIT

Bad Vibes Don’t Go With My Outfit” is the theme for the first Soul Story London collection. It’s all about protecting your spirit, your energy and yourself.

Right now, we are living in a time where there is a lot of negative energy flying around. We are seeing it on our TVs, the towns we live and maybe even with the people we are connecting with. In fact, may be you are projecting some negative vibes too. Whilst it is perfectly normal to feel some kinda way about what is happening and encountering negative energy is just part of life. It is important to not indulge in this energy to the point that it:

  • Brings you down
  • Leaves you feeling drained
  • Creates overwhelm and anxiety within
  • Impacts on your well-being

Which is where protecting your energy comes into play

Now, there are many ways to that you can do this, tools that you can use and people you can work with. However, Soul Story London jewellery is the home of crystals, talismans, amulets and beautiful things. So, that’s where the focus for us begins.

Crystals are a great addition to your spiritual (protection) practise. Working with your energy to support you with aligning with the intention you set and anything else that you may need energetically. As such there are specific crystals that you can work with that support you in protecting your energy and are known for the spiritual/energy protection benefits.

In the “Bad Vibes Don’t Go With My Outfit” collection the focus is on Black Onyx and Hematite. Blending this with, one of the most famous spiritual symbols of them all, being the Evil Eye.

BLACK ONYX
Black Onyx is a popular protection crystal that is often set in jewellery for luxe brands such as Bvlgari. It is a beautiful, shiny stone that can be used alongside other crystals to bring protection to the wearer by transmuting negative energy into positive energy.

The kind of things that Black Onyx is most effective at protection from, include:

  • Low vibes that you may not be aware of, eg: jealousy, Negative Nellies and other occurrences that may be draining your energy on the downlow.
  • When going into conversations/meetings that may get a little heated
    Whilst out and about at events or in a big city where there is a lot of energy moving around
    .
  • Assist you in seeing your negativity and self-sabotaging behaviour, which helps you to make changes for the better.

HEMATITE
Hematite is the ultimate grounding crystal that will bring your right back down to Earth when you have been working with the Higher (Spiritual) chakras or when life in the real-world just feels off-balance or a little chaotic. It also supports you in harnessing your own power and inner strength.

You can work with Hematite when you want to:

  • Get grounded so that you are not swayed by what is going on around you
  • Be more focused on everyday activities and what is important to you
  • Take a slower and steady pace rather than rushing in

These are really key benefits, especially when things are challenging around. This is because challenging times are the times when you can be prone to rush in, become overly emotional and maybe accept things that you may not ordinarily accept, eg: jobs, opportunities. I know for myself that there have been times when the benefits of Hematite’s energy wouldn’t have gone amiss, especially when making early career decisions, often in the heat of the moment.

EVIL EYE
This is probably one of the most famous spiritual symbols. Worn in the form of jewellery by celebrities such as Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Anniston and Meghan Markle.

The story of the Evil Eye can be traced back to the Greeks and Romans, as well as world religions such as Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism.

Evil Eye is believed to be a glance/stare/glare that is intended to cause harm. Therefore, by wearing the symbol of the Evil Eye the wearer will be protected and attract more positivity to themselves.

Although, crystals, amulets and talismans have their own spiritual benefits and properties, it is important to remember this: YOU have the real beauty, power and magic already within you. It is through your positive intentions and actions that you are able to reap the benefits that are awaiting your arrival.

So, that’s a little overview of the current collection. I hope that you love wearing your Soul Story London jewellery and remember to: “Keep your intentions pure and in love, and your deeds good.”

With love,
