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. Reiki has and continues to be a pivotal part of my personal growth, and life as a whole. It is … Continue reading My Reiki Story
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
Life works in strange and miraculous ways, and for some reason has a wicked way of kicking you in the butt when needed. I caught the winter flu. ON MY HOLIDAY. That's right. Whoopdeedoo! Thankfully, I was staying at my sister's and she took great care of me -- home away from home -- I … Continue reading Flu Wisdom
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
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.
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
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
I have never quite been the journaling type. I have always wanted to, God knows how hard I tried - trips to Kikki.K, buying expensive journals (and not using them), my Japanese stationery collection that can rival Kinokuniya and Tokyu Hands. I tried, but failed miserably. And after that, I proceeded to I hide my … Continue reading An Uplifted Day: The Five Minute Journal
Since discovering Lotus Wei, I have noticed shifts in my moods and overall well-being and taking my flower essences daily has become a regular routine in my everyday life. I had previously shared my initial experience with Lotus Wei flower remedies, and how it was impossible to pick a favourite as each one stood to magnify a specific … Continue reading Lotus Wei: The Undeniable Joy About Joy Juice
I have never been big on making new year resolutions and on the few occasions that I did try, I failed miserably. To be perfectly honest, I only made them because it seemed like the right thing to do. After all, everyone was making them and it was only normal right? Of course now on hindsight I … Continue reading The Happiness Jar
Source: Pinterest We are THREE days away to a brand new year! Wow, what a year 2015 has been. Personally, it has been a journey of growth and change, and I thought it would be worthy to share some of this year's meaningful lessons - as a reminder to myself, and to perhaps inspire you for the New Year ahead. … Continue reading Reflections: 2015 in Retrospect
For those of you who know me, you would have noticed multiple mentions of Lotus Wei on my Instagram account, and thus it is no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Katie (founder of Lotus Wei), and her amazing line of flower remedies. In fact, the reason why this blog exists is partly … Continue reading Lotus Wei: Flower Alchemy
Laundry, chores, groceries, errands, Christmas shopping, evening dress hunting for a friend's wedding, unfinished projects begging for my attention - There is always something on my to-do list that needs attending. My Sunday's are usually spent crossing off some of these items and planning for the week ahead. Ok, and maybe the occasional moping around … Continue reading Sundays are for savoring
Self love (not to be mistaken for self-centeredness) is something we often neglect but yet absolutely necessary to practice. When we take time to love and nurture ourselves, it often spills over into other areas of our lives and also to the people around us. Others will also be naturally attracted to you and … Continue reading Self Love
Note to self: Stop over-thinking, over-analyzing, over-planning, over-doing, over-everything. Don't sweat the small stuff, live a little and enjoy the ride. Just be.
