Hi to all you beautiful people and a very Happy New Year to you all, I hope you had a blast.
I’m sensing the urge to share with you today as January can be a really hard month to get through.
Christmas has been and gone, the days are dark and most are feeling the pinch in purses, pockets and clothes thanks to all those mince pies!!
So I am here for you, offering huge wafts of support and amazing crystal tips to help lighten the load.
Our Christmas in the Gadd household was not quite so sparkly and bright this year, still lovely though and I’m so very grateful for the time that we did have.
You see this Christmas we had a family bereavement and the return of a very unwanted gift, one which darkens our door from time to time.
It hovers on the periphery of my beloved son lurking and waiting to sneak in through the back door when we we are not looking.
He carries this burden of blackness with him always and with such grace and patience hoping it may leave, that I find it so hard to witness.
From time to time it burrows deep and floors him so badly we are not sure he will get back up from the attacks,
But he did and he continues to !
Thanks to all the wonderful support of our family, friends and of course the NHS.
When our son came home for Christmas I was armed with love, light and as much crystal I could possibly hold to help fight this with him.
I am very aware that this is his battle, absolutely but I was also very aware of the darkness surrounding, trying to spread and suffocate all in its path.
I was starting to feel the heaviness of it and that it was trying to get a hold of me too.
Something that I rarely ever get, but I wasn’t really helping the matter.
For my usual methods of trying to be as shiny and bright as possible all eluded me.
I chose to eat far more unhealthily than usual
I didn’t meditate each morning
I didn’t exercise
And yes of course I drank way too much
So you put all that together and throw in a big hovering black dose of depression that was clinging on the walls of our house, then it’s probably going to stick.
Thankfully my first line of defence to bring this monster screeching to the surface was speaking out loud to my husband.
Voicing exactly how I felt, bringing a slither of light in.
Then we went outside with crystals in my pockets and walked and walked the hind legs off our chubby cocker spaniels.
This helped, even more so when we saw a canal boat elegantly sail past us with “ hakuna matata” written on the side.
Well if you’re not a fan of The Lion King and unsure what those weird but wonderful words are.
They mean “ no worries” and they are also the first two words that I read out at my fathers funeral a few years ago now.
So to me such a powerful reminder that we can let these worries go for everything always works out in the end.
Feeling a lot lighter I then had the energy and inclination to bring forth more light, so I then dived into a fully loaded crystal Epsom salt bath.
Literally now being able to feel the darkness dissolve from my being.
Then capped it all off with a huge drink of crystal elixir, my choice was Smokey Quartz for dissolving all negativity and getting an early night with masses of Rose Quartz under my pillow and on my body to fill me with unconditional love and light.
What I most definitely do not want to do here is belittle depression, for it is a very real illness and does require medical attention from time to time.
I am just trying to share with you how little things with Crystal and love can massively help fight this dreadful darkness too.
No one escapes unhappiness !
But always know that this too will pass…
Crystal Elixirs are a combination of just filtered water and popping a crystal in it allowing the energies to blend with the water molecules, preferably in sunlight or moonlight for added charge.
Please note never place crystals in water which end in “ite”
Like moldavite or malachite
For these crystals have toxins in them.
Also know that crystal elixirs are not meant to replace any medication you may be taking.
Crystal Epsom salts baths are also a potent healing combo of magnesium sulphate and rose Quartz crystals
Place around two large handfuls with the crystal into the warm waters of your bath and allow them to draw all the excess energy and negativity from your mind, body and soul.
I even like to pull the plug whilst I’m still in the bath so I can literally feel it all leaving my body.
Enjoy and bring forth that light
