4 Quick Ways to Meditate

4-quick-ways-to-meditate

One thing that comes forward consistently for my clients in a message from an angel or guide is that they need to meditate. Everyone knows the many benefits of meditation, but in our crazy, crazy world, it can seem like a big time commitment. I understand this, and I would love to share my tips on how to incorporate quick meditation into your daily life.

youtube_logo1-gif_480_480_0_64000_0_1_0One resource that has been super helpful for this is YouTube! I always thought of meditation has a huge time commitment, but on YouTube, they have guided meditations that are as short as two minutes long, or others that go on for hours! I use the shorter ones during a lunch hour with my iPod, when I am traveling or just to have in the background. My personal favorite accounts include The Honest Guys and Lisa Beachy. For meditation music I love the Soothing Relaxation account, and I will list links below. What I love about the guided meditations is the fact that they are so custom-fit; you can focus on a particular chakra or an angel meditation.

At my hair salon, I was getting my hair washed, enjoying the moment, and realized that this was some form of meditation too! Even if you spend five quiet moments in your day, that is a form of meditation. Ever since the salon experience, I try to incorporate some meditation in daily tasks, such as waiting in line at the store, and I have found myself to be much more grounded.

Exercise! Doing some form of Yoga or Pilates is so healthy for you in the long-term and also helps you focus on your body in a holistic way. Doing this at least three times a week will help ground and center you! It is super beneficial even if you are only able to devote a few minutes to the practice daily.

I know this blog post is super short, but it is something I get asked about frequently so it is something I wanted to share. Let me know if these tips help at all!

Goddess Provisions December Box Review

Hello again! I wanted to share this amazing monthly subscription box! I have been a subscriber for a year, and I love this box so much! Each month typically has a theme (one box was based on the solar plexus chakra) and includes teas, crystals, and a variety of other items to encourage good vibes.

All the items together, minus the snacks!

This post will focus on reviewing the items in the December Box, and I will continue to do monthly reviews on future boxes. I do want to apologize for poor quality pictures, unfortunately, my camera was recently stolen!

The7Directions Crystal Grid – $19.99 Value

 I had received a crystal grid prior in this box, and it was my introduction to crystal grids! They are used to help fulfill an intention based on sacred geometry. This one is made of fabric and features The Flower of Life grid, which assists with manifesting a larger goal or desire. I love how this one is so large and really helps pack a visual punch when it’s set up! This is my favorite part of the box!

The first thing I did was saged the area just to make sure it was cleansed of any negative energy before I laid out the crystals. Typically, in the center you would place a tower crystal (I have a tower rose quartz) so that extends upwards, so the universe hears your intention. You surround it with other crystals that may follow the same theme around, and  I wrote my intention on a slip of paper, and I left it underneath the rose quartz crystal. I activated the grid with a little meditation. It is perfect for the new year to help manifest goals. I am still learning about crystals and crystal grids so I am happy to explore this topic further in the future.

Plant Life Uplift Blend – $8.95 Value

I have really been learning more about aromatherapy, and I was so pleased to see this in the box! I immediately used it in my diffuser, and I love it! So uplifting, just like it claims. bergamot, lemongrass and citrus essential oils. I found that it was very uplifting in a gentle way, and is not like a peppermint oil where it makes you very alert. It is perfect to have as an all day oil in a diffuser. Meow Meow Tweet Deodorant (1 oz jar) – $8 Value: Unfortunately, mine will not push-up so I have been unable to use it, but it does smell amazing. It is plant-based so it is free of toxic chemicals and uses essential oils for that delicious smell.

Addictive Wellness Raw Chocolate Love – $7.75 Value

Value It is made up of mesquite, lucuma, maca, cistanche, mucuna, he shou wu, and reishi mushrooms. The taste was a little different that what I am used to, but it tasted amazing when I shaved it and put it in some coffee!

 

Lola’s Handcrafted Nag Champa Perfume- $9 Value

I have seen Nag Champa products in various metaphysical stores and always forgot to research them! This product was my introduction. I felt as a perfume on me, it is a little heavy for my tastes, but it is something I wear when I do yoga! It seems to set that yoga mood.

Rawxies – $1.99 Value

This was beyond delicious! I actually put mine in the fridge (I enjoy cold desserts) and it was amazing! This is perfect for someone who engages in a plant-based diet, or for someone who is trying to eat healthier but still needs a little sweet snack to get by. And can we talk about how cute it is?!

ipphonegreenGreen Aventurine Pyramid – $25.00 Value

I love focusing on my heart chakra, and this pyramid is perfect and ideal to help with that! I used it on my crystal grid but I have also used it with my heart chakra meditations, and there is so much amazing energy in this crystal!

all-itemscrisp1

Each box comes packed in a purple box with a charming design on it, and an instruction and information sheet for all the products within. This box is no longer available for the subscription service, but it available through their store. To sign up for the monthly subscription, it is $33 dollars a month. Since I have been a long-term subscriber, I am super confident in saying that each month, the boxes are totally worth it!
