It's not just that we're all made of the same cosmic stardust, we need to be cleansed and recharged too, just like crystals do.
Some crystals give off positive energy, some calm the mood and some seem to radiate love. Llike people, each one is unique and has different strengths. So thinking about your own energy in the way you might a treat a crystal can help you see yourself in a different light.
Like crystals, our energy can become stagnant and we might feel creatively blocked up or stuck so we need to cleanse it. Ever feel lethargic or just tired for no reason? Maybe you need an energy cleanse. If you work in a stressful job or have to deal with negative people, you probably need to cleanse yourself regularly!
After clearing out the old, in must come the new. These are some of our favourite ways to power up.
In the sun
Just as crystals like to moon bathe to recharge, as creatures of the light we need vitamin D and so basking in the fiery light of the sun gives us exactly the boost we need. Maybe that's why us sun-starved Brits feel the need to holiday so often...
Spending time with mother nature is a healer! If you've got something on your mind, a problem to mull over, or you're looking for inspiration, taking a solitary stroll in woodland can give you the respite you need. And on a sunny day there's nothing more dreamy than laying down gazing at clouds with your back pressed to the earth.
Everyone knows that a good lie-in is a balm for your body and mind. Like literally recharging your batteries, sleep can help you solve problems, get perspective and give your body time to mend and cells to repair. If in doubt, sleep on it.
Food - It's a cure all! Sometimes, if you're feeling down, eating sugary treats (or pizza!) is a necessity! But giving your body the right nutrients to run right is super important too. Listen to your body, craving for sugar might mean you need some extra energy so take it in the form or power foods like Blueberries instead. Eat seasonally and avoid processed foods and your body and mind will thank you.
Get a hair cut
Few things put a spring in your step as much as getting new hair. Whether it's a fresh colour or a new cut, good hair is a magical life elixir that we just can't explain!
