Silence is Important

I’m striving hard to achieve my goals for March and in that pursuit I have been making more time for meditation. The meditation has given me time for self reflection and is slowly making me more aware of my body and surroundings.  I now find myself driving with the music off and just sitting in my room, on my bed, with the TV off, computer closed, phone down, and just being.  It has been quite soothing. I truly encourage you to try it. Just be. 
“Silence is not silent. Silence speaks. It speaks most eloquently. Silence is not still. Silence leads. It leads most perfectly.”

Cleansing Meditation Gemstones

In my last post, I mentioned that I purchased gemstones to aid in my meditation practice, and after receiving these gemstones I learned that they need to be “programmed” before using them. According to the insert from “the purpose of programming a stone is to focus its energy on something you specifically want or need, thereby magnifying its intent through your own.” The insert also came with steps on how to program the gemstones and the only step I didn’t know how to accomplish was “cleansing the gemstones” so after some research I found a few different methods.

The method I chose to use was placing the gemstones in a sea salt within a glass container and allowing them to cleanse overnight. From my research, I found that “sea salt is the most traditional purifying agent…. It dispels any sort of dis-ease and negativity, and is a physical and psychic disinfectant” and it is “highly recommend it for the initial cleansing of a new healing stone and for any time a stone is overloaded with negative energy.” After allowing the gemstones to cleanse overnight for several days I removed them and programmed them to my mantra which is based on principles of Peace, Forgiveness, and Love. 

Mediation & Yoga Essentials

It’s going on two weeks of me practicing Bikram Yoga and Asana Yoga and I’m in love with both. I practice Bikram Yoga at various studios and I practice Asana Yoga at home via an app that I discovered in the App Store. My normal attire for yoga is a tank top and brief shorts,very simple and free. Recently, I purchased a beautiful piece of yoga jewelry from Lhasa Designs [HERE] which features a locket and I plan to add a Sugilite gemstone inside. This week will be the first time using the yoga jewelry and I’m excited to the added energy!
