Reiki and Inner Peace

WARNING!

Long Personal Blog Post!

Who is the MOST important person in your life?

Many will say my kids or my spouse, however, YOU are THE most Important person in your life!

“One cannot help another, without first helping themselves.”

This is something that I have known for years, but I have struggled with for many years.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a very hard time saying NO.

However, for some reason, I tell myself NO when I shouldn’t and then I struggle with trying to make everyone happy.

Sadly, by trying to make everyone else happy, I am not happy and I have struggling to make it seem as  I am.

I know that some will not be happy with me with my decision to put myself first, but I cannot let it bother me.

In my journey to wellness, I have been learning more and more about myself and how I work on the inside.

As I learn how I tick, I am discovering that I MUST take time for myself in order to be able to help others in the way that I want and need in my nursing career.

I have to STOP taking on more than I can handle and start stepping back to be able to have inner peace inside myself instead of a constant struggle.

I am the type to take on too much and then let myself suffer due to not being able to have downtime for myself and my family.

I have spent the last 5 years pursuing my nursing degree and I am now working on getting my state board license so I can begin my career as an RN.

Thankfully, I have discovered Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) and I have become a Second Degree Reiki Practitioner.

Through my journey of learning Reiki, I have started to rebalance my energy and I am no longer tolerant to negative energy.

The world has far too much negative energy and I am doing what I can to avoid any and ALL negative things in my life.

As my journey continues, my goal is to be able to bring Reiki into the lives of others to help them find their inner peace.

To bring myself back into alignment, I MUST detach myself from things that are no longer beneficial for my mind, body, and soul.

In doing this detachment, I am embarking on a social media detox for a minimum of 21 days while I rebalance my energy.

I will continue to journal my experiences as I rebalance my energy, however, it will not be a daily practice.

Instead, I am going to begin a daily practice of taking care of myself by meditating, performing self reiki, spending time outside, and enjoying my family.

While I take on this part of my wellness journey, I will continue to pray and send healing energy to my family and friends.

If you are feeling lost and unconnected in your life, I invite you to embark in finding what makes you tick.

I also would like to encourage you to get outside, go for nice walk or find a quite place to take in the beauty of our world around us.

Amazing Detox Bath

IMG_1188

There is something so soothing about a relaxing warm bath after a long day.

For years I was one who would take a bubble bath with a bubble bath product from a well known chain store that is famous for after holiday sales. I would stock up on yummy scented bath products thinking I was doing something good and relaxing for my body. Little did I know that the products I was soaking in was loaded with chemicals that are harmful for our skin. 😦

Thankfully, I was able to crawl out of my bubble bliss and learn about the health benefits of taking a detox bath. Due to our environment, our bodies are not getting the proper amount of magnesium that we need. Our bodies NEED magnesium to survive, yet our soil is being depleted and the typical American diet severely lacks the amount we need.  I have been doing detox baths for about 3 years now and I am SO GLAD I started doing them. A little over a year ago I started using Young Living Essential Oils  and I started adding them to my detox baths. I try to take a detox bath at least once a week, if not more. There are some weeks that I do not get to take one and I really miss it.  I use lavender essential oil most of the time, however, I change it up depending on my mood. If I really want to relax and I am going right to bed after a detox bath, I do a combo of Lavender and Peace & Calming essential oils.

Amazing Detox Bath Recipe

2 Cups of Epsom Salt

1/2 Cup of Baking Soda

10 Drops of Essential Oil

( I only use Therapeutic Grade Young Living Essential Oils)

1 Bathtub of Hot Water ( Not too hot, but not warm)

20 to 30 Minutes of Soaking Time

I like combine the epsom salts, baking soda, and essential oil together before adding to the water in the tub. By adding the essential oils to the epsom salts and baking soda, the oil absorbs into the salt mixture and does not float on the top of the water. As we all know oil and water do not mix, therefore, adding essential oils to the bath water will not be as beneficial as it could be. Once the tub is at your desired soaking level, sit down in and relax for 20 to 30 minutes. After you are finished soaking, drain the tub while sitting in the tub, allowing your body time to rest before getting out of the tub. If you are pressed for time or you do not have a bath tub, you can still enjoy the benefits of a detox bath by doing a foot bath and reducing the amount of products.

Detox Foot Bath Recipe

1 Cup of Epsom Salts

1/4 Cup of Baking Soda

5 Drops of Essential Oil

10 to 15 minutes of soaking time

The above recipes make a great gift for friends and family.

I like to make up a few jars during the holidays and have them for just in case gifts.

You never know when an unexpected guest will stop by during the holidays and bring a gift. 😉
