Spring clean: Clear your energy

Don’t you love a good spring clean?

Clearing out all of that junk that you don’t really need is such a satisfying feeling.
Sometimes you need to do that with your energy. Have we lost you? A little too whacky for you?

We’re talking about reiki.
It is believed we are alive because a life force flows within and around the body through pathways called “chakras”, meridians and nadis. When this flow is disrupted, it is believed to disrupt the function of one or more organs and tissues of your physical body.

The life force is impacted by the thoughts and feelings you have and become disrupt with we accept negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves – consciously or subconsciously. Theses accepted negative thoughts and feelings cause this energy to break apart and fall away.

Reiki heals by flowing charging the affected parts of the body with positive energy. The vibratory level of energy field raises in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached.

Reiki will cause the negative energy to break apart and fall away. Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, allowing the life force to flow in a healthy natural way.

Reiki is a special life force that can only be channelled by some that has been attuned it.
“To become a Reiki Master you are attuned by a Reiki Master. The attunement transfers reiki from the Reiki Master to the student and this allows them to access the universal energy to treat others” shares Tania Dobbie, Reiki Master, Bondi Beach clinic.

Reiki will never do any harm. Tania is always aware of what the client needs and will adjust herself to create the effect that is appropriate for the client.

The reiki energy flows from Tania’s hands into the client. Tania will her hands on your body on or near the body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head, shoulders, stomach, feet and other more specific positions the client may need.

Tania may leave her hand in one position for a few to 10 minutes depending on how much reiki is required at each position. The sessions usually run for about an hour but can be longer is more is required.
Don’t believe it works? One person that carried a lot of stress is our marketing manager! She experienced a reiki session with Tania and this is what she said:
“It was incredibly relaxing. I can’t say that I felt an energy running through me but I guess you could say I felt, lighter. Does that make sense?
I had been having a lot of health problems and I had seen a number of specialists and no one seemed to be able to tell me exactly what was going on.
After the reiki session Tania gave me some notes and also advised that my health problems are specifically in my stomach and advised that I must get tested for a bacterial infection. The very day I went to have additional testing around bacteria AND she was right”.

Our marketing manager was a sceptic but it seems following the session she gained a lot of clarity.

Send Nudes: Benefits of going makeup free

Less perfection more authenticity.

Going makeup free for some is terrifying, for others they would never consider it because their love for makeup and there are those who love going nude, makeup free!

A celebrity we all know that has gone makeup free is Alicia Keys. Her Reason to stop wearing makeup was a part of a journey towards empowerment for herself.

Writing on Lenny Letter, Alicia said “Women are brainwashed into feeling like we have to be skinny, or sexy, or desirable, or perfect. One of the many things I was tired of was the constant judgment of women.

The constant stereotyping through every medium that makes us feel like being a normal size is not normal, and heaven forbid if you’re plus-size. Or the constant message that being sexy means being naked.”
“Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn’t put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it??? These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me.”
Alicia finished by saying, ‘I don’t want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.’

Go Alicia! There are more practical reasons too:
1. You’ll save money: Studies suggest women spend an average on $15,000 on makeup in a lifetime. We think it’s a lot more!
2. Save on time: How long does it take to perfect your brows or draw that perfect winged liner? Guaranteed you’ll save 10 to15 minutes a day! Imagine the additional sleep in time.
3. Improve skin health: A lot of people wear makeup to cover up their skin. Going makeup free may improve your skin health, give your skin some time to breathe. Great skincare is more important than trying to cover up skin that you’re not happy with.

Flick it: Look on the Bright Side

We’ve all been there. Feeling on top of the world, ready to take on a beautiful day and then BAM.

Someone says something, or does something, that rubs us the wrong way – and their negative energy ruins our entire day.

Maybe it’s a friend of yours who looks at the world as a glass half empty – leaving you feeling just as empty when you spend time with them?

Or, maybe YOU recognise in yourself that there are some shifts to be made with your own beliefs – that maybe you see things more doom and gloom than sunshine and rainbows?

It’s a fact of life that we are going to experience highs and lows. It is impossible to ride a rainbow of positivity 24/7. But rather than labelling these experiences, moments or feelings as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ – acknowledging them as a necessary part of life is a FAR better way to look at them. When we take away the labels, we also remove the feelings that we SHOULD feel a certain way, all the time.

Because here’s the thing – we are going to feel sad, angry or upset from time to time. That is actually not a bad thing. What IS bad is when we let these feelings ruin our day, week, month or YEAR.

Negative energy can fester, leaving a foggy cloud of (mostly avoidable) emotional, mental or sometimes physical damage behind.

Emotions are energy in motion (e-motion – get it?) So when we let these feelings ride their natural course as they arise, rather than dwelling on them, they do little damage. In fact, when we fully sit with an emotion that arises – be it anger, sadness or even excitement – and allow it to wash over us fully, that emotion passes in less than 20 minutes. It is when we dwell on them, or suppress them, that we can cause some real challenges.

So how do you shift a negative mindset to look on the bright side?

Our words and our thoughts are so incredible powerful. The energy in these create our reality – this is metaphysics and is so incredibly important when wanting to create powerful positive shifts in our lives.

Keep a gratitude journal each day and list the top 3 things you are grateful for. Or even better, do what I do and call your bestie each day to chat about what you are both grateful for. Before long you will have trained your mind to see the good in every situation. It really is that simple.

Do things that light you up
Hate your job? Would you rather put a fork in your eye than train at the gym?

Stop saying yes to outings with people who drain you. Stop working a job you hate. Just stop. Life is far too short to live for “eventually”. Live for now. Quit the excuses. Follow your bliss and make life worth living.

And if you truly can’t change your job, or your friendships, or something else depleting you – then at least look for the GOOD in these things, and focus on them instead.

Reflect on your relationships
Who are the people in your life that leave you feeling inspired, positive and uplifted when you see them? Spend more time with them!

Likewise, who are the people who leave you feeling drained, depleted of energy and frustrated? Whether you love these people or not, it is time to create some boundaries. You are not doing yourself, or them, any favours by showing up to anywhere you don’t truly want to be.

Follow your heart, invest energy in the people who light you up, and watch the beautiful energy and positivity that you attract in your life as a result.

Self love
 Most importantly, how is your relationship with yourself? Do you speak to yourself with loving kindness? Or are you constantly berating yourself and never ‘enough’?

If the latter relates to you, focus on cultivating more self love in your life. Rather than dwelling on the bad, shift to the things that make you FEEL good.

And do these things simply BECAUSE. You don’t need a reason or special occasion to run a beautiful bath with candles, or take yourself out to a beautiful meal. Treat yourself daily with love, kindness, rest and joy simply because you deserve it.
