I love lavender. It is the one herb and essential oil that most people love and it has many benefits, including helping you relax and sleep better. It is one of the few oils that can be used on babies and is well-tolerated by most people. Besides smelling amazing, the plant also looks fabulous!
Essential oils are the healing properties found in plants and can be very therapeutic. Essential oils are an easy way to get the healing properties of herbs into your life and they are less messy. Lavender is relatively inexpensive and readily available at most pharmacies and health food stores.
Please check with your health practitioner before using any essential oils or herbs, especially if you are not well, or taking medication. Never use these products if you are pregnant or nursing. Read the rest of this entry »
Color therapy is a well-established practice when it comes to putting right what could be wrong in our lives – be it emotional or physical. The ways in which we can make use of color are broad and varied.
For example, we can wear color in our clothes and jewelry, burn gorgeous colored candles, cook beautifully colored foods, work with color while meditating and even bathe in color when we so wish.
Color therapy can also be beneficially applied in our romantic life. So, whether your are single or in a relationship, why not consider applying a little color therapy magic to your romantic life?
Maybe you currently feel you are never going to meet your soulmate. Are you afraid of history repeating itself and think that you may never, ever find ‘the one?’ Or maybe you feel you may have found your soulmate, but you are not exactly sure about this. Or maybe you would just like more passion and commitment in your life? Color therapy could play a significant part in bringing your romantic hopes and desires to fruition.

We are aware your many forms of communication here on this planet. The one we would like to speak of today is your social media. Just allow yourself to relax. Feeling your body coming down and calming down into this beautiful sacred space of healing today.
Feel your spiritual council come in to surround you, to uplift you with their love, their light, their inspiration. They serve as a bridge, a bridge to the spiritual realm. A bridge to helping you to stay grounded, helping you to remember who you are and why you came here.
It is easy to get caught up in the flurry of activity especially with all of your social media venues. It has given you the opportunity to connect with others that you wouldn’t ordinarily be able to reach in this light that is a good thing. Read the rest of this entry »
Himalayan salt lamps naturally purify the air through ionization. Studies indicate that as much as a third of the world’s population reacts adversely to negative ions, and many people report that the air becomes easier to breathe when using a salt lamp.
Larger versions of these lamps, ideally hand-carved from the natural rock salt, are attractive and come in shades of red, amber, and cream. No two are alike! They weigh between 25 and 32 pounds and each will treat a space up to 320 square feet. Apart from the tabletop versions, did you know they are also available in a larger, half-dome size? Like their smaller versions, these lamps have multiple health benefits: relief from asthma and allergies, low energy, sleeplessness, and attention deficit. Read the rest of this entry »
So, the year 2017 is finally well on its way, and already those new year’s resolutions are beginning to falter for some. I, like so many people, also have made my new year’s resolutions. I want to be more positive, more focused and more available to the ones that need me. I also want to lose weight, eat more healthily and get more exercise. These are my promises to myself, but will I live up to them? That’s a good question.
Why do we make these resolution and then not follow through? I have found that I do much better if I focus on just one. Creating unrealistic expectations for yourself will only set you up to fail. Plan ahead, and have the tools and attitude to succeed. A positive attitude is crucial to success with your resolutions. You have to believe you can do this! Read the rest of this entry »
Sadly, we tend to overlook the very real, physical signs our bodies give us, to let us know that the stress is all too much. If you’re experiencing one or more of these symptoms, it might be time to take a look at how to reduce stress levels and get your total health on track.
Pain in our bodies is probably the most obvious sign something is wrong, yet it tends to get ignored until it’s almost too late. Aches and pains, stomach issues, muscle tension, and heart palpitations are among the most common. Also, when we’re under stress, our sleep may suffer. Sleep is crucial to a person’s well-being, and if we’re not getting enough sleep (or too much) the entire body suffers as a result. Read the rest of this entry »
My life is running in reverse right now – or so it seems. My energy is low and it is affecting my health. I took the time to sit today and ask my guides, “What am I missing here? I have been doing what you asked, helping others, being there for those that need me and working towards my goals and my highest good. Why are these things hitting me right now to knock me down again?”
The answer I received was eye opening and so simple. “Sheri, it is time to clear the clutter, so you can move forward again.”
Clutter is one of those things that can hold us back, that can take us in reverse, or just put a wall up in front of us, so we don’t achieve our true higher potential. Read the rest of this entry »
The most overlooked aspect of our Christmas spirit is the giving, especially fruit. And for each fruit there is a symbol as an emblem of divinity or purity, as an anchor to our Earth, honoring our agricultural and farming heritage. In parts of Europe, for example, St. Nicholas would put tangerines into the homes of children to announce the arrival of first Advent.
The apple was used as a symbol of longevity and happiness, and youth and fertility, and thus was used in the story of Adam and Eve as the symbol of temptation. Yet, we must remember that in this infamous story, the snake that tempted Adam and Eve, was the bringer of knowledge and this is the age old lore that presents itself again and again throughout history. Not many people know that it was the Tree of Knowledge, not the apple (or sexuality) that tempted them. And in some ancient texts, they were freed by this knowledge. Read the rest of this entry »
