Hi everyone! I have been asked more than once what I do to help balance myself & release during times of emotional triggers. So I thought I would put together a little blog post that may help you. Some of these practices, I do daily or weekly and not just when I find myself needing release. I hope this information helps support you on your journey.
Clearing your space & setting intentions during emotional triggers
Take a few moments daily or at least weekly to energetically clear your space. Saging is an excellent way to move out energy that is no longer serving you. If the smoke bothers you, sage spray is available for purchase as well.
Set your intention for the cleansing, what do you want to release or clear?
Clear your space from the ground up while making sure all 4 corners are cleansed of every room
Keep a window open for the smoke/energy to leave
You can also burn sweet grass afterwards to bring in positive energy
Check out this link about how sage has been proven to cleanse bacteria in the air as well.
EPSOM SALT BATHS
Epsom salt baths help clear the energetic body & help a lot with grounding. This is an incredible & powerful practice for those of you who are empaths & highly sensitive. Also, for those of you who love & work with crystals, you can even soak with your rose quartz or other crystals that are not affected by water if you like.
GROUNDING / EARTHING
There is a real science to walking barefoot and connecting to the earth's energy. You are an energetic being, full of electricity, you need grounding. Connecting with nature helps calm you and allows a reset.
MEDITATION & PRAYER
Meditation & prayer is an excellent way to tune in and get back in touch with your heart space, so you can find clarity and take action on what you need to take action on or release that which is coming to the surface for healing. For those of you who have a hard time meditating, there are a lot of guided meditations on Youtube, even for beginners. If that doesn't help, try listening to meditation music or binaural beats as you sleep.
* Remember, the key to meditation is allowing, you do not have to clear your mind. Allow what comes up, to come up. Also, if you want to attract more abundance into your life, use this time to visualize what you want to materialize, it's just like daydreaming. This is how manifesting new things in begin.
ENERGY HEALING / BIO FIELD TUNING
Receiving a reiki treatment can completely shift you. Some feel an immediate shift while others can feel the shift a few days to a few weeks after the session. Reiki changed my life and it inspired me to become certified. Reiki can really help with emotional healing/balancing, grounding and more. I recommend receiving a reiki treatment at least every 4-6 weeks and if you are feeling quite triggered and have a hard time balancing your own energy, this is a great immediate option.
Take some time to journal or write out what you would like to release. Then in a safe place, burn it. Send that energy out into the universe for transmutation. You will also be creating a physical anchored memory of you consciously releasing what needs to be released, so if you later on find yourself falling back into that same cycle that does not serve you, you can quickly remind yourself that you already released that issue and you will remember that you have a choice to repeat the cycle or not.
Again, these are just a few common practices to to help maintain balance, release & clear your space during intense emotional triggers, and ones that I personally use. As always, take what resonates with you and leave what doesn't, do what feels right for you & allow yourself the time you need to clear & release, this is a crucial part of the healing / self love process.
