Hello mi gente!!!
So, yeah… who else is feeling this crazy retrograde???? I mean, I was that person always saying “nahhh, it doesn’t affect me”… then, retrograde said: “wait… hold my beer”… you know what I mean??? It’s been C R A Z Y!!!
I have so much going on with work, projects, family… it’s like the Universe is pulling me in so many different directions. I HAD to start implementing things to ground me, to help me raise my energy vibes and bring about that good juju.
In my search for these things, I enrolled in a smudging class and met Neelou from Smudged. The class taught me the principles of smudging which I will let her explain:
Smudging is the act of using smoke from sacred herbs and flowers to cleanse and purify a person or space. This ancient ritual is practiced by a myriad of cultures and dates back thousands of years. Wild rue, sage, palo santo, rose, lavender, dandelions, cedar…the list of plant allies goes on. Whatever one may need in life, there’s a plant you can burn to call in support.
So Here Are The 5 Things I do To Raise my Energy (when I’m feeling sh*tty)
I am obsessed with this one (on the above picture) called The Lovers, got them at Smudged online store.
After taking this 21 Days Understanding Meditation Audio Program (100% recommended!), I learned to better relax my mind and to manage my stress levels which as a wife, immigrant trying to make a difference, and entrepreneur with type A personality, you can just imagine how over the top it can be.
Agua De Florida
Thanks to my abuela, I’ve been using Agua de Florida since I can remember! It’s funny how many things I learned from her and didn’t even fully realize it.
Does your head hurt? Agua de Florida! Did you have a bad dream? Agua de Florida! Did you have a bad day at work? Agua de Florida! Do you feel bad energy around you? Agua de Florida!
And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing since I was literally a teenager. I am (again) obsessed with Smudged Agua De Florida… You guys, it’s infused with CRYSTALS!!!! Whaaaat???? It’s like my abuela’s Agua De Florida but on steroids + fairy dust! It has a fresh, crisp scent that does not linger for too long. It uplifts the energy in any room it is sprayed in and can even be used on the body because it’s non-toxic!
The spray bottle is charged with crystals (which are actually left in the bottle) and under an auspicious planetary timing. Other ways you can use it: general room cleansing (think smudging, minus the smoke), freshening up bed linens (I do this EVERY NITE!) and towels, removing dull energy, refreshing the senses, and more. The scent is light with citrus and clove notes. It comes in a beautiful reusable Miron Violet glass spray bottle.
Angel & Affirmation Cards
I love to randomly pull an Angel Card or an affirmation card (I love this one called “Power Thoughts” by my beloved Louise Hay)… Whaaaat? you don’t own an angel card deck? or ANY deck at all? Ok, so what’s life?!). Love them, and use them on the daily 🙂
I Pray (last, but not least!)
I don’t consider myself a religious person, but a spiritual one. A VERY spiritual one… I also love to listen to the song “I Surrender All” and just say whatever prayer comes to my mind at the moment, and whatever conversation I feel like I need to have with God at the moment. This can take place several times per day… I might be what’s consider like a pain in the b*tt to God, but he knows I’m just a little extra! Lol
Anyways babes… this is what works for ME, and just wanted to share.
Do YOU have any rituals or any other tips for when you feel sh*tty or are having a crappy day? SHARE with me in the comments. The extra ideas are always welcomed and I love to hear from you ALWAYS!
Talk to you pronto!
