Surprisingly enough, I have never heard of the adorable and completely open Lee From America. I was introduced to her by my Mother-in-Law saying I would just adore her and what a down to earth, free spirit she is. Well, she was 100% spot on. Lee From America, hello from your most recent follower and let me start by saying, thank you for sharing. Stalking her IG page and seeing where her next event might be (none on the docket as of yet), I quickly caught on to a constant monthly theme of hers, setting intentions. Having delved into the surface of full moon ceremonies, crystals and taming their energies, essential oils and how they can help with healing, I was aware with every new moon, you are supposed to set your intentions. I always assumed there needed to be some deep, spiritual passage of intentions and I would get lost in thought trying to dig down and figure out what my "intentions" were to be until the next full moon. Usually frustrated and more confused than when I sat down, I would circle back to the same comfortable intentions I had set the new moon prior because I felt I could perform better at those intentions this month too. Lee sketched it out point blank - setting intentions can range anywhere from the consistent practice of mindfulness to getting your butt up and gift your body the healthy and loving reward of movement. With a clear vision of the scope of intentions to reflect on, I set out to have my own intention setting session.
Chakra Candles by Charlie Bax have been in the works/on pause for unfortunately far too long. I truly believe with the recent powers of the blood, blue and lunar eclipse there have been some electrifying energy shifts in the air and in our spirits and the Chakra Candles were calling my name. First born, the Heart Chakra Copper Tea Light.
Chakra - In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body.
Heart Chakra - The heart stands at the center of all energies and unifies our being as a whole. It is the point around which all the energies turn. A discord or imbalance in the heart chakra will adversely effect all the other centers. A clearing of the heart chakra will improve the interaction of all the other centers. It is important to maintain a balance to all the energy centers so a healthy level of awareness is manifested in our everyday lives.
Rose Quartz - Speaks directly to the heart chakra dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments and circulates a divine, loving energy.
Scented with the Healing Essential Oils of - Rose, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Tangerine, Jasmine and Lavender.
Healing Properties of Copper - As a conductor of energy, when used with earthly crystals it intensifies, enhances and channels their properties. Along with assisting the body with repairing tissues, oxygenating the blood, easing arthritis, strengthening the female reproductive system and increasing vitality.
Meditation Intentions Session
First, I cleansed my Heart Chakra Copper Tea Light and space with sage. I then used some of the base essential oils from the Heart Chakra Candle such as Lavender, Tangerine and Grapefruit on my wrists to enhance creative thinking and heart healing. I then lit up a heavy Indica of Gorilla Glue 4 from my friends over at The H.I.T. Habitat to relax my body and mind and focus on what my heart and head were saying to me. Lighting my Heart Chakra Candle was the last step in preparation as I sat down and let the intentions flow freely using the worst colored pencils I've ever used, trying to relay my thoughts to paper.
Acting as what I would consider my first successful intentions setting session, I'd say the added elements of the Heart Chakra Copper Tea Light, the essential oils applied on my pressure points and the relaxed state of the THC helped it all come to fruition.
