When I was ten my mum decided to changed her life, even her name, and she started working as an energy therapist. This was 2001, an energy therapist. Come on, what is that? I can remember that she was called a ”hippie”, and this was apparently a bad thing.
Now I’m waaaay more hippie than my mum. She raised me well.
Talking to her now on Skype and she’s saying that she’s not hippie anymore, and at the same time she’s showing me a dance on how to collect energy from mother earth… Yeah mum, you are always going to be a hippie. And I’m proud.
When talking about healthy habits people are often referring to eating healthy, doing physical activity. But looking at it from a holistic perspective – how do you heal your body, mind and spirit?
When you feel that you are not your best version of yourself, your body feels uncomfortable, your mind isn’t really that bright. What do you do?
I have a bad habit of seeing myself as a victim, which is not an attractive thing to do. And my mum, my role model, always makes me see this – which pisses me off (obviously), but she is right.
So I find things to heal myself – I’m that type of person that wears crystals ever day, I bathe with crystals. Heck, when I came home from the hospital after the accident I put all my crystals around my bed thinking they would protect and heal me. Is that weird? Not to me.
I see osteopaths for my body. I see crystal healers for all parts of me – body, mind, spirit. I’m reaching out to an astrologist because in a way it heals me knowing that there is a bigger picture to it that I can’t see right now, cause I’m right in the middle of it all and have a hard time seeing it from another perspective.
I practice meditation. I write. I do affirmations. I use essential oils for all parts of my body, even my vajayjay.
And now I’m gonna go cry a little, you know, cleanse the channels. Cause it’s good for me.
What do you do to heal your body, mind and spirit?
