Self Care Tip #7 - Self Healing
This is my ultimate self-care tip that also doubles as a big infusion of self-love. I regularly give Reiki and crystal healing sessions to myself and my loved ones. However, typically on a Sunday when the household is calm, the pace winds down and everything feels quiet I treat myself as if I was one of my clients.
I create sacred space using candles, crystals, soothing music, oils and more. I intuitively select crystals for each of my chakras that I will lay on my body. As I lay on my healing bed I have a crystal grid beneath me and I lay within a grid too – the energy is so peaceful, so pure and so supportive. I focus on my breath and give Reiki to myself, staying here for as long as I need to.
You don’t have to be a healer or even have crystals to do healing on yourself. There are many different techniques that you can use. One very simple way to heal yourself is to place one hand on your heart and the other on your solar plexus. Visualise and feel yourself (or perhaps an Angel or Guide) sending love and healing to you. You can see it as a colour, an image, an energy, a feeling or just about anything that works for you.
One thing I do for myself regularly is to visualise each of my chakras as a beautiful coloured crystal ball that gently spins in a circular motion (you could see it as a flower, a heart or any image that feels right to you). I start from the base chakra working up to the crown, and only move up to the next chakra once I can hold the image of the colour clearly and strongly in my mind. This is a simple yet effective and beautiful practice that's guaranteed to fine-tune and balance you.
