Burn sage, frankincense or camphor to eliminate negative energies:
Sage is an aromatic plant used both in medicine and in food. By burning sage leaves, you will let the smoke purify and sanitize your home. Open a window before you start burning the sage, to let the smoke out. Sage helps eliminate negative energies from the house. Use camphor lamps or diffusers as they are effective in ridding the place of negative forces. Lighting camphor, especially in the evenings at home, is a great way to enhance positive energy. Sandalwood and Lavender have amazing healing powers to neutralize bad frequencies.
In Indian culture, burning incense sticks is a common practice to invite positive energies and ward off negative energies present in the house. Fragrant smoke helps create a pleasant ambience and has been an integral part of spiritual and meditation practices for years.
Harness your intuition through an oracle:
One of the most wonderful ways to train and develop your intuitive abilities is through the use of divination cards. This may not only sound a bit strange, but also a bit scary. Many people who associate divination cards (especially the Tarot) with witchcraft. In fact, divination cards are inherently harmless. They are basically divination tools that are used to gain clarity and help find answers to complicated questions.
The two most popular card games these days are oracle games and tarot. People both use them to dive into their consciousness and find the answers they seek, primarily by looking at the picture each card presents. But what is the main difference? Well, the Tarot mostly uses a traditional structure. There are 78 cards in the deck and most decks are based on the original Rider-Waite Tarot deck. Oracle games, on the other hand, have no fixed structure. There can be as many cards in the deck as the author wishes. In addition, the cards can be totally different from those of other oracle games.
Both Oracle and Tarot cards have specific meanings behind the images shown. However, they can also be interpreted in different ways depending on the reader. That’s why it’s important to try to use these meanings as a guide only. Your priority should be your own intuition and listening to the messages your heart wants to send you.
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine of ancient, empirical Chinese origin that until the mid-1900s was deemed an unscientific and unverified practice in the West. By inserting needles into certain places on the human body, acupuncture stimulates health and promotes the well-being of the individual. According to traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points corrects imbalances in the flow of qi, a person’s life energy that flows through well-defined channels, called meridians, that connect acupuncture points. According to the Chinese conception, if one or more meridians are blocked and the regular flow of qi is interrupted, health problems or illnesses arise.
Recharge your batteries by taking a forest bath:
It’s not for nothing that the biggest cities in the world have parks, trees and islands of nature dotted around their bustling streets. A study conducted by the International Journal of Environmental Health Research found that spending time in an urban park can have a positive impact on a person’s sense of well-being.
In addition to city parks, deeper practice of forest bathing has been found to reduce blood pressure and heart rate. As this practice helps lower levels of harmful hormones like cortisol, which your body produces when under stress.
Studies have also shown that simply spending 10 to 20 minutes a day outdoors can reduce stress and increase well-being and happiness.
