Here is an infographic on how to do a daily walking meditation. Daily walking meditations, especially during the week outside in a garden or natural environment assists with refreshing the mind, providing a break to daily schedule and promoting well-being. It is a flexible tool that can be done anytime and will fit into any busy schedule plus it increases overall productivity!

Crystal Lore 3#: Amber – Free Oracle Card

Tips on Working with Crystals:

My third crystal lore flash card! Amber has fascinated man kind since Neolithic times. It is not a crystal or mineral, because of its organic origins. However it is still a powerful addition to the crystal healer’s toolkit.

I have here another printable (customise to any size you like) information sheet regarding the survivalist known as Amber. The information sheet contains its chemical constituents, its natural colour range as well as some authentication tests. I explain how it is formed during fossilisation and the main locations for finding Amber. Amber links to the ability of survival – it is associated with the root chakra and physical health. Combine Amber with Malachite for more intense physical and emotional healing.

Tip: Amber scratches with the fingernail, so store amber away from any sharp or rough crystals to prevent damage! 

I have two downloadable files here for personal and non-commercial use (click links blow). You can use the cards for readings, but the production of them as a deck or individual cards for selling is not permitted. Print out & enjoy! There are more crystal flash cards to come!

Tips on How to Meditate:

Using aromatherapy alongside your daily meditation rituals are both relaxing and fun! By using different scents during each of your meditations (depending on the time of day) conditions your mind to ‘this is meditation time’ and smooths you into the session with ease. Light and happy notes can be use in the morning to freshen the mind for the day, the afternoon can make use of more herbal-based notes for a gentle revitalisation, whereas heavy scents can be used before bedtime. You can add the essential oils to an aromatherapy burner or apply an oil pre-mixed with a carrier to your hands before meditation.

 

I have listed in this infographic three essential oil recommendations during meditation:

Lemon for the mornings as a top note,

Lavender for the afternoon as a middle note,

Sandalwood for the evenings as a base note.

 

Tip: Whenever possible always buy reputable and sustainable products as these will contain the proper amounts of oil for an effective and long-lasting aromatherapy treatment!
