Sage: is a great energetic cleanser. Start off with sage in the diffuser to cleanse the space before starting the ritual. It is also great for giving strength and courage before starting such rituals and helps to let go of unhelpful thoughts & emotional states. Sage also reduces anxiety.
Are you feeling restless, distracted, is your heart racing, are you unable to sleep, or is your mind in over drive with seemingly irrational thoughts or do you have physical symptoms such as headaches or tummy aches? You may be experiencing anxiety.
"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."
Jean Shinoda Bolen.
I just love the term “self-caring”. It's my new favourite. Practice saying it! “I am just doing some self-caring. I will be there in 20!” What a great thing to say to your friends, your parents or your kids and what a great model for everyone else to be inspired by. Care enough about yourself to make time and room for self care
When times are tough, it can be difficult to be grateful. You are in Melbourne (or elsewhere) in lockdown again. You have no or little income because of the closures of your business or place of work. You have a kid (or kids at home) who are doing (or resisting) online schooling and need your intervention or time. Your relationship is at its limit and you have no family around for support (or they're far away). It is really easy to focus on what you don't like or what is hard, too easy! But is it possible that what you focus on, is what you attract more of in your life? The law of attraction says exactly this, that what we focus on is what we attract, as everything is energy and like attracts like. So do you want more of those negative things (which would possibly end up in a mental health crisis) or do you want to focus on more of what you want to bring into your life?
