Life as a Medium - Episode #5 Transform Your Wellness PODCAST

Life as a Medium - Episode #5 Transform Your Wellness PODCAST
Today I had a heartfelt conversation with my beautiful friend Rose of Sharon from Embracing It All.

I met Rose of Sharon years ago now at one of the Psychic and Wellbeing Expos. I was drawn towards having a chat with her and a little while after that she came down to the Body, Mind and Spiritual Centre that I opened 2016 in Torquay - Aspire Wellbeing. She came down to do psychic readings at my centre and I saw the magic in her work by helping people as a Medium and Spiritual Counsellor. She truly have a special gift and a heart of gold.

Valkyrie - Unique Crystal Jewellery

Valkyrie - Unique Crystal Jewellery

CRYSTAL JEWELLARY Unique handmade pieces by Karin Hagberg

I started to create the "Valkyrie" Crystal Diffuser Malas and bracelets at the end of 2020.

I have always loved craft and creating and as I love crystals and essential oils, making these is something that makes my heart sing.

Female warriors in the Viking Ages were referred to as "Valkyries" and as I have Viking Blood in me and I have that Viking Warrior Spirit in me, I found that this was the perfect name for these powerful pieces of Jewellery. 

Each and every piece that I make is made from the highest quality crystals. 

I infuse them with healing energy as I make them, and with special intentions.

All pieces have a unique name that comes with a description of all crystals. 

The Malas also come in a beautiful hand sewn bag.

Mala Beads have been used in Buddhist and Hindu prayer ceremonies and meditation for centuries. These are typically used to aid in counting the number of repetitions of mantras or phrases. There are typically 108 in a string, and there is usually a decorative tassel on the end of the strand, sometimes adorned further with embellishments or amulets.

All pieces have been cleansed and charged and Reiki infused. All of the designs are exclusive and no two are the same!

How is your Confidence and Self esteem?

How is your Confidence and Self esteem?
Do you feel confident? How is your self esteem and do you practise self love? 

Before I delve into this, let me clear up what I mean with these words. Let me start with Confidence. 

Confidence is a measure of faith in one's own abilities. Self esteem is on the other hand our sense of self. So can we be confident but have low self esteem? I believe we can, but it's often very hidden. In fact we can be very confident in some situations but in others we are not. 

When it comes to self esteem we often talk about having high or low self-esteem. I would of course encourage you to have high self esteem, because I think you are important to this world and you have something to contribute - we all have!

I believe that it all starts with Self-Esteem which is closely linked with self love. I will get into this a little further on. So, why would we experience low self-esteem and where would this have started?
Well, we all have past experiences and relationships and those impact us in different ways - some positive and some negative. Positive experience can impact our self esteem in positive ways and can contribute to our self esteem but what about all those negative or challenging experiences we have had and negative or not healthy relationships we've had. Well, those can certainly knock our self-esteem on it's head. Those can lower our self-esteem and can also contribute us to forget all those positive things about ourselves. 

There can certainly be times when someone would "fake" Confidence. Yes, you heard it right - "fake" confidence. There are some signs that someone is "faking" being self confidence such as their posture. They usually stand straight with a relaxed stance, they feel comfortable in the space around them, they don't like having questions asked, they can appear arrogant and often have a change of heart around matters. 

Can you relate to any of this so far?  

Our experiences can impact our self esteem for sure, because we may start to say and think negative things about ourselves, we start to focus on the negative and we "forget" what we are good at and we ignore our achievements so far in life, we start to think that other people are better then us, we may start to compare, we also find it hard to accept compliments. We may also feel sad, anxious and ashamed or angry. Well, these things does not exactly boost our self esteem do they? No, quite the opposite - our self esteem start to decline.

Most of us experience the feeling of being down in the "dumps" at some points in our lives and we don't know where to start.....Well, the good think is - You Can Change and Improve Your Self Esteem and that is where it all starts.

Here are some ways that you can get started in improving your self-esteem.....
  • Say STOP to that inner voice or inner critic that does not speak kindly to you.
  • Write doesn't things that you love about yourself!
  • Be grateful about You, who you are, that wonderful You!
  • Stop thinking as you have to be perfect!
  • Practise self-love - things that you really love doing. You deserve it!
  • Make time for Joy! Life is about this. It's about allowing yourself to live with passion
  • Affirm what you believe
  • Be kind to yourself and others
  • Start to prioritise what is really important to you
  • Learn to step away when you feel it's needed - this is not about them, it's about You!
  • Know what is important to You
  • Always challenge your thoughts....ask yourself "is this thought going to be helpful in my life or not" If not, just get rid of it as it does not serve you
  • Learn from your past experiences...and know there is no failure..there is only experiences and you can learn from these.
Well, there are many more things you can do but that is a start.....

I truly believe that if we can rediscover ourselves through building up our self esteem. We can make life truly incredible. And by doing this we will absolutely transform. Are you ready to Transform?

I know how past experiences can knock that self-esteem's not a good feeling....but always know........that "warrior" is hidden within you and is ready to come out. I often wished in the past that I had that person "holding" my hand when I was navigating though the process of rediscovering myself. I know it would have made the world of difference.
You don't have to do this alone. Having support can make the world of difference.

Now, back to Self Love. Self-Love comes from a deep feeling of appreciation for yourself and that stems from working on your Self Esteem. It really is and inside Job and only You can do this work. You are the one that can take action that supports your physical, psychological and spiritual growth.  Self-Love really means you have high rewards for your own well-bing and happiness. It means that you take care of your own needs and don't sacrifice your own well-being to please others.

Crystals of Love

Crystals of Love
Crystals of Love or Heart chakra stones are the specific crystals and gems that resonate with the energy of a vibrant and awakened heart chakra.
Using and working with these crystals can assist in balance our heart chakra, heal past pain, wounds, traumas and restore a sense of well-being and love.
Having a balanced heart chakras and awakening heart chakra is important as the heart chakras is the balance point for your physical and energetic being.

The heart chakra is the chakra that balances the mental and spiritual energy of the higher chakras with the physical energy of the lower chakras. Its also the center point of your multidimensional being. The heart chakra is  your key to fully love and accepting yourself ands those around you. When your heart chakra is balanced you are able to forgive and love in the most trying circumstances.

The heart chakra also plays a key role in empowering you to anchor the higher light of Spirit into your physical being… and empowers you as a physical being to reach up to experience the higher realms of angels, peace and light.

The Sanskrit name for the heart chakra is Anahata. Anahata means unstruck. It refers to the pure tone of the awakened heart chakra that is the resonant sounds made without any two things striking. It is the sound of love present when there is no striking or struggle…  It is the tone of Divine Love, balance and harmony.

Heart chakra stones resonate with this tone, and can help bring your wounded, closed, or imbalanced heart chakra center back into a Divine State of embodied love, and balance so you can clearly relate to yourself and others with love.

There are many Crystals you can pick for the heart chakra. I am going to go through a few with you, but there are more to choose from. Trust your intuition when you choose crystals - go with the ones you are forward towards. 

Below are some crystals that support and resonate with the heart chakra.

Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz is one of the most common crystals. It is well known for being the “Stone of Love”. It resonates with love and with the heart chakra and has a beautiful warmth and loving energy. Rose quartz supports relationships of all kinds, encourages emotional healing, and opens the heart chakra to the flow of love.

Pink Opal
Pink Opal is a love stone with a deep connection to the Heart Chakra. It works to heal our emotions, allowing our hearts to open to love. Pink Opal is often referred to as “The Stone of Resolution” as it works to heal our emotional wounds and deep hidden fears enabling us to resolve and let them go.

Emerald is a powerful heart chakra crystal and “stone of successful love”. It is incredibly supportive in cultivating loving relationships with others whether that is at the level of friendship or romantic partnership. Emerald encourages living in a heart centered way and responding with love in the present moment.
This is a stone that can support in healing wounds of the heart as well as embracing the heart centered qualities of love and compassion.
