So I’m not even going to ask how you are doing. One of the main complaints of everyone that walks into Smudge is “I’m stressed out!”. It’s no wonder! This year is a tough one, where change is being pushed to the forefront making everyone uncomfortable, upset, and let’s just say a bit crazy. lol! So yes, there is enough stress to go around for everyone!
There is a lot of change happening this year. You are cleaning up the crap out of your life that you have been putting off. As you continue to put it off, this year will get more and more uncomfortable, as will your life situation you need to change. Change is the process of letting go of what you don’t need, and welcoming in the new good stuff. While this is an essential step in personal growth, business growth, and progress of any kind, it still is a stressful process.
Fortunately, we know all about this process at Smudge, and we have many products and services to help you stay calm and grounded during this time of stress and change. It’s much easier to go with the flow and embrace the changes you are going through, than to keep resisting them. Inevitably they are going to happen whether you are ready or not! So here are some easy things you can do to add some peace and stability into your day.
From the time you wake up, you can begin your day with some small yet effective things that can add some peace and stability to your day. As you towel yourself off from your shower, dab on some essential oils. The aromatherapy properties of Lavender, Calm Yo Nerves, Mercury Retrograde, Love, and Van Van, will relax, distress, sharpen your mental focus, and cleanse and protect your auric space. Our Essential Oils, and Blends can be applied right on your skin without worrying about irritation. When stressed it’s important to breathe and not react to situations in frustration or anger. Mercury Oil enhances mental focus and helps with communication and throat chakra. You need to be patient and loving with yourself through times of change. Our minds go through the grieving process as we experience change, as loss is part of change. Use love oil to draw love to yourself and to help you with self love. Van Van is an all purpose Hoodoo conjure formula. Grounding, clearing, protection, road opening and prosperity is what Van Van is about. You can also add oils to your candle, a diffuser, or a bath.
Carrying crystals like amethyst, citrine, agate and obsidian promotes peace, tranquility, protection, happiness, good communication and grounding. Carry your crystals with you in a spirit pouch, or your pocket, or put them in your work space. Place a piece of amethyst under your pillow, or on your bedside table to help you relax and have a good nights sleep. Always remember to cleanse your crystals every few days. Place them on a window sill in the sun, on top of some salt, or on a piece of selenite to clear out any accumulated negative energy.
Beginning your day with pulling an oracle card gives you a positive focus and intent to hold as you go through your day. Ask your spirit guides and angels for a message that you need to hear for the day. Pull your card and focus on your message of the day. You can carry the card with you and during the day you can take it out to remind you of your message from your guides. If you encounter a stressful moment during your day, you can go back to your card and remind yourself of the message and reassure yourself that God and your angels are by your side through this stressful moment.
