I have recently been on a new beauty adventure in energetic healing. You are probably wondering how energy and beauty have any correlation at all. I sat down for a chat with my energy healer Ali to dive into this concept a bit deeper and started seeing how the pieces fit together.
What is energy healing?
If you are un familiar with energy healing (as I was before I began with Ali) here is a little breakdown for you:
Think about yourself mid week after a few long work days, a couple of fitness classes and maybe an argument with your husband. You are feeling pretty drained, so you grab a coffee on your way to work or down an energy drink to get through your workout. We tend to fill ourselves up with unnatural substances to regain the energy we need to get us through the week. When working with an energy healer it is possible to plug our natural energies back in, like working on a puzzle.
The final goal of energy work is getting back to wholeness and honouring what is already there for us. Ali, my energy healer is a pro at holding space so I can even find beauty in my wounds.
Natural Healing - Natural Beauty
It became very apparent to me that when the energetic pieces of ourselves find their way back to their home body we become more light, more aware and more sensitive to our surroundings. It was easy to think back on my journey when I began to live in a more natural way, I became more sensitive to chemicals in my products, sweeteners in my drinks and even negative people in my life.
Becoming more in tune with your “full” energetic body we tend to rely less on television, coffee, relationships and other escape mechanisms to bring our energy levels up. This can also be said about becoming more in tune with your natural body rhythms, skin cycles and menstrual cycles. We don't need 25+ beauty products, we need to be more aware of the food that is going into our bodies, the thoughts sitting stagnant in our minds and our energetic needs (as women) during our monthly cycles. Becoming more connected to your mind and body, the more our true natural being shines through, and that is beautiful.
Our Energetic body is an extension of our physical body. The field is composed of vibrations (emotions, thoughts & colours). Physical pain, or skin issues can manifest physically if energetic vibrations are low. This is because energy becomes stagnant. Taking care of the energetic body is just as important taking care of the physical body. This care can also help shift though patterns.
So what can you do to care for your energetic field?
I decided to launch this blog on Valentines Day for those ladies who are into self love and self care. We do not always think about our energetic field the way that we think about our skin so it can get neglected. Here are some things you can do to give your energy field some LOVE!
1. Meditate! Light up some beautiful candles (my favs are Woodlot or Harlow), turn on the gentle tunes and get cozy. Sometimes I will use a guided meditation as I have a wandering mind.
2. Clear negative or stagnant energy. My favourite way to do this is with Palo Santo or Sage smudge. This is no new technique in the green beauty world. I use sacred smudge spray from “Ceremonie” and Palo Santo from “Woodlot”. Both Palo Santo and Sage clear your space of energy that is not yours. This is also a great way to bless your space.
3. Visit my babe Ali Babylon in Kitsilano. Every week I look forward to my session with Ali. She thrives on creating a sacred space with candles, sage, card decks, tea, hot water bottles and most of all, her nurturing caring self. Ali became extremely humbled by her clients' vulnerability, she recognized that it was their struggles or wounds that transformed into qualities of deep strength and beauty, Ali is extremely intuitive, knowledgeable and I trust her with my entire being, which is why I highly recommend treating yourself to an energy healing session.
