My Reiki Story

This post has been a long time coming, so when Keri from The Greenly Guide approached me, asking if I was willing to contribute an article to share my Reiki story, I could not refuse.

Aura-Soma: You Are The Colours You Choose

I was first introduced to the world of Aura-Soma at a crystal workshop. The teacher had casually passed around a small bottle of pink coloured liquid which she called a Pomander and instructed us to place three drops in our left palm, following which, we rubbed both hands together, and wafted our arms over and … Continue reading Aura-Soma: You Are The Colours You Choose

Flu Wisdom Part 2: The Natural Way

I fell ill again. Yes, again. Ughhh! I don't know if it was the same flu virus I had mentioned here, which I didn't fully recover from, or, I had caught something new altogether. Either way, I was miserable -- not quite as bad the first time -- but still miserable. I was adamant about not … Continue reading Flu Wisdom Part 2: The Natural Way

The Transformative Magic of Flowers

Did you know that plants are psychic? Studies show that our houseplants perceive our stress, even when we’re thousands of miles away! Flowers and plants in general have tremendous intelligence and we are much more connected to them than we are aware of. They make us feel happier, less stressed, more in tune + more fulfilled. This … Continue reading The Transformative Magic of Flowers

Being Me.

I recently wrote an open post on Facebook about my Reiki journey. It was something that I had been struggling with for the longest time; whether to publicly share it, because I was afraid of what people were going to say - family, co-workers, friends from secondary school; from tertiary education; people who have known … Continue reading Being Me.

Natural Remedies For Respiratory Well Being

Having a respiratory infection is a total downer, whether it's congested sinuses, a leaky nasal passage that just won't stop, a hacking chesty cough or worse, asthma - I think I speak for everyone when I say that its an awful feeling and we wouldn't wish it upon our worst enemy. I certainly wouldn't. I have … Continue reading Natural Remedies For Respiratory Well Being

Frankincense Face Balm to Heal Your Body & Soul

I've learnt long ago that not all skincare are created equal and I was recently reminded again of this fact. Most promise to improve the quality of our skin or fix chronic issues, but I've never come across anything that spoke anything about elevating my spirit. Enter Ritual Radiance's Frankincense Face Balm (recently re-branded, and formerly … Continue reading Frankincense Face Balm to Heal Your Body & Soul

There is Nothing Basic About S.W. Basics

Let us backtrack to the beginning. Hi, I'm Clare and I have a**hole skin. Okay, let me try that a little nicer - my skin and I aren't friends. I want to be friends but it simply refuses. Sigh. So the issue here is - I have mild psoriasis and to tell you I have … Continue reading There is Nothing Basic About S.W. Basics

Reiki: An Energy Healing Therapy

Six years ago when I first heard about Reiki, I had absolutely no clue what it was about. My friend, N who was then a newly minted yoga teacher, and who had also been attuned to Reiki asked if I was up for a Reiki treatment. Being the open-minded, up-for-anything person that I am, I … Continue reading Reiki: An Energy Healing Therapy

My Josh Rosebrook Love Affair

I had given up on finding a natural alternative to mainstream shampoo. I had tried a couple of green beauty brands, none of which worked out for me, and quite honestly, mainstream brands weren't cutting it for me either. My finicky scalp was just NOT HAPPY with everything I tried. Things would start out fine, and … Continue reading My Josh Rosebrook Love Affair
