3 ways to be more spiritual in your beauty routine + heal your relationship with yourself

When we talk about conscious beauty our thoughts normally go towards vegan and ethical beauty products or eating mindfully and healthily. Yet, the kind of conscious beauty that I want to focus upon today involves mind, energy and emotions.

Over the last few years the world of beaury has changed with more and more people taking a more conscious approach. Rather than being seduced by the brand + packaging we are looking more closely at the ingredients and we are asking questions about how ethical the brand is.

But, what if we could take this a step further by using our beauty routine as a way to consciously align our mind, energy and emotions to heal our relationship with ourselves? In today’s blog post I’ll share some tips on how you can do exactly that.


DEFINING SPIRITUAL BEAUTY 

Spiritual Beauty involves going within to do the inner work in order to heal your relationship with yourself and step out of the dark into your light. The tools I use include energy healing, spiritual guidance (including mindset, mystical wisdom and ritual) and outer beauty treatments.


SPIRITUAL BEAUTY RITUAL

Decide

Set an intention for your beauty routine. Decide how you want to feel and how you want to show up in your world that day. For example, you may have an important interview and you want to feel confident. Invite the Angels, God or whoever you believe in to support you in aligning with this energy through the power of prayer or setting an intention.

Prayer: “Thank you for blessing my day ahead and everyone that I meet. Thank you for blessing me and filling me with (insert what you want to receive).” For added emphasis and energy alignment choose a crystal that matches the energy of your intention, eg: Green Aventurine for luck or Mangano Calcite for self love.


Affirmations

Have affirmations close by and say these as you are applying your make-up in the mirror. Your affirmations can be a mix of things that you love and honour about yourself, alongside those that align with one specific thing that you are working on manifesting into your life.

Tip: Begin your affirmations with the words “I am“. It is believed that whatever follows the words “I am” are instantly affirmed by God and you will become that. Read more here.


Awareness

As you apply your makeup begin to notice where your thoughts go. Notice whether or not those thoughts are self-affirming or devaluing you. It’s possible that when your attention moves towards a particular part of your face or body you feel a shift in your energy, eg: butterflies or tightness in your tummy.

Is this an indication that you need to love this part of your body more? Are their thoughts and beliefs about this part of your body that devalue you?

Tip: Acknowledge the energy, thought and feeling. Reframe and affirm what you want to think and feel about that part of your body instead. Where possible use the word “I am” and if it’s hard to believe the new affirmation trying saying “I am giving myself permission to let go of the belief that……” and follow this with “I am willing to believe that…..”


ARE YOU READY TO EXPERIENCE SPIRITUAL BEAUTY?

Take what resonates from the practice of Spiritual Beauty and don’t feel the need to do it all at once. Start with one of the actions and focus on it over a sustain period of time. On the other hand you may prefer to take one activity and make it into a weekly ritual. Choose what feels good, aligned and manageable for you.

Be patient with yourself too. Whereas you might be able to change some beliefs that you have about yourself quickly, there may be others that take more time. Often these beliefs and thoughts have been engrained in you over a period of time. Affirmed over and over again through experiences and interactions with others, sometimes since childhood. In some cases you have even inherited these beliefs from your your parents and taken them on as your own. Therefore, the practice of Spiritual Beauty will take practise and consistent effort.

I’d love to hear how you get on so feel free to comment below or message me personally.

With love from me to you xo

The Art of Letting Go: Why I stopped cutting cords + what I do instead

chanelmarie.co.uk

Before discovering Angelic Reiki I had practised cord cutting. Using it to support me in detaching myself energetically from a soulmate relationship and person that simply wasn’t right for me.

I must have completed this practice a dozen times or more. Yet every time I found myself going back to the soulmate or repeating the same patterns with a different person. Each time the experience would be more challenging and painful than the last. Which meant that I was in this cycle of continually cutting the cords. However, when I became an Angelic Reiki practitioner I discovered key elements of the core removal process that changed everything.


WHAT I NOTICED

During Angelic Reiki healing sessions I would often see AA Michael and the Angels removing the cords one by one, rather than cutting them. What I also noticed is that some of these cords were really long and thick, suggesting that the energy within had built up over time. In fact, what I learnt is that some of these cords went back to past lifetime.

Once the cords had been removed the space they had occupied would often be cleansed of any remaining, unwanted energy. The area would be sealed with light and throughout the process, I would often be given some insight into the:

  • Energy
  • Root cause
  • People
  • Feelings

Some of these roots will have gone back to situations or people in the past, including past lives, childhood and teenage years. All of which gave a clear indication of what needed to be released in order to facilitate the healing and letting go process.


WHAT I LEARNED

Removing cords

Removing the cord from the root helps to identify the root cause. That is the place where the thought, behaviour and pattern were first formed. Now, sometimes this is very obvious and is something that you are consciously aware of. However, there are times when the root cause of an issue you are dealing with is not blatantly obvious, eg: soulmate relationships or money issues.

In getting to the heart of the issue you can then take responsibility for your own growth and movement forward. Taking action on changing those behaviours, stories, beliefs that have kept you in a cycle or situation that doesn’t serve you.


Divine light + positivity

In sealing the space with Divine light and love this was a way of cleansing the space, removing any excess unwanted energy. I found this supportive in facilitating the healing process, especially when the cords have been attached for some time.

The additional benefit is that it sets a new foundation that can be built upon. That is built upon using energy: thoughts, desires and behaviours, that are positively aligned with what you want to experience. It’s really like a closing a door to the old and the creation of the new. Yet, this requires you to be conscious and aware to ensure you are not simply filling the space with more of the old.


Awareness, intuition and responsibility

Healing is a practice that requires you to show up and use your own awareness in order to facilitate that healing process. Your awareness is especially important during those times when healing may feel challenging and when you are tempted to just slip back into old ways.  This requires you to use your awareness to notice where energy cords are attached that no longer serve you or are draining you. It also means that noticing when you are slipping into old patterns and cycles. Then use wisdom, tools and the gift of your intuition to guide you towards making healthier, life-affirming choices.


WHAT NEXT?

Now, many people will have their own way of removing cords and, as I always say: If that works for you then keep going with it. However, there will be some people who, like me, find that simply cutting the cord wasn’t helpful. If this is you then if it resonates then try working with AA Michael to remove the cord from the root and make a commitment to really showing up for yourself, as well as your healing.

Keep in touch and let me know how it goes.

With love xo

New Moon Time: Step into the real You!

chanelmarie

And what a hell of a new moon this one is.

Over the last few days, I’ve been going through a bit of an energy clearing. Initially, I thought it was a bug due to the sudden change in weather. On remembering the forthcoming New Moon eclipse, I knew this was a purging of energy. An upgrade was on the cards and from the conversations, I have been having it would seem that I am not the only one experiencing the purge.

So, what’s the deal with this new moon?

Intuitively I’m feeling that as much as it’s about calling in the new; which is typical to new moons. It’s also about preparing yourself energetically and mentally for what it is that you want to experience.  Ultimately, it’s about stepping into the real you.

For those of light warriors and hot mess goddesses of light, it’s also about us stepping fully into our light. No more pussyfooting around it’s all or nothing now.

Trust me, I’m getting the universal kick up the bum too. #togetherwerise

In order to step up, you also have to do some clearing out of the old, which can often live you in this space of limbo between the old and new. Thankfully, the New Moon will support us to close that gap by working with it to begin that process of visioning who it is that you want to be!

Obviously, you can think about the things that you want to manifest and experience but this moon is more about YOU! Who you are becoming and who you want to become. In some cases, who you are currently moulding into isn’t necessarily who you desire to be. If that’s the case, it’s as good a time as any to make that change!

How to make the most of it

Be super clear about what it is that you want to experience and call into your life. This isn’t a time for being modest or playing small either. Dream big yet be sure to make it all manageable for yourself, as well as calling in necessary support, to avoid feeling overwhelmed or giving up at the first hurdle.

Cos there will always be hurdles!

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What is feasible to call in, experience and step into over the coming months?
  • Then take it long term: What do you want to experience further down the line?
  • What can you do to align with the woman that lives that life?

The key message coming through is: The work you do on yourself is an inside job yet it will resonate on the outside too.

Lately, I’m coming across a few women wanting to make changes to their outer appearance too. Think diets, new clothes and upping their beauty game. If that’s you then you go for it. Don’t let people deceive you into thinking that it’s not important. If it’s important to you and is being guided to up your game:

Go for it! This is all about you stepping into the woman that you were created to be.

Leo energy is bold, proud and doesn’t mind standing out from the crowd. I mean just look at Jlo and Madonna. Both are unafraid to change their image or look their best!

And, it goes without saying that it’s a time to set intentions. With the vibe of Leo being bold, fun, creative, joy and expressive then it’s a no-brainer that your intentions will be to do with what brings you in alignment with all of that!

Ultimately…….

You will find that some doors are closing and others are opening. Will you keep banging on or returning to the door that’s closed or the ones that are opening up? Often to do the latter requires a new You. Will you let the new You emerge?

This New Moon is really all about You! It’s about getting yourself aligned and feeling good from the inside out. So, whatever is falling apart or whoever is drifting away: Let it!

If you need a hand, I am at the end of an email, ready to help you to help yourself! This is your time, pretty lady!

With love
