Here at Crystal Harmony UK we have literally become obsessed with cleansing and smudging!!! We love the idea that we can change the energy around us and immediately feel better! We have just had the new smudging kits arrive which are absolutely gorgeous and we cant wait for you all to get involved! Please send us in your smudging selfies and experiences!!! And just in case your not sure where on earth to start or what to do ... here is a handy guide for you:
💭The use of dried white sage and burning herbs is a 2,000 year old Indigenous American practice.
🙌🏼Smudging your sacred space, your home or office, or even your body with sage is like taking an energetic shower, or doing a deep metaphysical cleansing. 💨The smoke from dried sage actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing our stress response.
🌿When should I smudge?
•When you move into a new living space
•...When you begin a new job or start your own business
•Before / after a guest enters your home
•Before / after a yoga or healing session
•After an argument or any illness
•Upon returning home from crowded situations
💨How do a smudge & cleanse my space / myself?
Place your sage or cedar into your lovely Abolone Shell (a traditional vessel used by Indigenous American people that represents the element of water), light the bundle by holding a flame to it until it begins to smoke. If a true flame appears, shake the bundle gently or blow until it is just embers and smoke. You may need to re-light the bundle a few times during the ritual process. With the loose Sweetgrass, use your charcoal burning disk (or part of it) inside your shell to set it alight.
Once you have a nice smoke going, use your wafting feather to direct the smoke over your body from your feet up to your head, then back down again. As you do this, visualize the smoke taking away with it any negative energy from your life.
🌬🎋You may even like to say words out loud such as; "Air, fire, water, earth. Cleanse, dismiss, dispel." Or “I dispel all negativity from my being / my space and replace only with positive things” (or whatever resonates with you!)
🙏🏼Once you have smudged your body, begin to move through your space. Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into shadow spaces. To maintain the atmosphere of ritual, keep repeating your words in your mind as you diffuse the smoke.
🙌🏼Once the space is cleared, allow the sage or cedar bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your shell. 🐚You can even bury the remaining smudge in your garden to really feel the completeness of the cleansing ritual. Once buried, the smudging has done its work in completing the cycle. Ideally, you should try to use a new smudge for each cleansing.🙌🏼♥️🌾💨🎋💭🌬🙏🏼🌬🌬🌬🌬🌾🎋🌿🐚🐚

Hi to all of our amazing Crystal Harmony fans .. Firstly we just have to start by saying (actually shouting from the rooftops!) WE HAVE REACHED OVER 500 LIKES ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE!!!!! We are so totally happy and filled to bursting point with gratitude to all of our followers for helping get us there, it’s a great achievement and we simply could not have done it without you all! xxx
So how was everyone’s Valentines day? We dispatched lots of our gorgeous Crystal Opalite, Rose Quartz, Sodalite & Amethyst hearts to all ends of the country (and a few outside of the UK too!!) so we hope they bought a lot of love and joy to the recipients ... we even had to send some anonymously ~ what a cute romantic gesture to receive such a beautiful gift from a secret admirer! Love was most certainly in the air this Valentines!!
So as we move through the year, our attention has turned to some more key events coming up over the next few months, and we kick off with Mothers Day – a time for us to say thank you to our Mums for all they do, have done and will do for us, or maybe you are a mum yourself and its your turn to be truly spoilt. Also, we mustn’t forget the Nans, Grannys, Grandmothers out there ... as they are often a mum to their children as well as their children’s children – now that needs celebrating!! So along with your daffodils this year – why not give her a gift to remember – well watch this space as we have a range of perfect gifts and we will be sharing them with you over then next few weeks.
Then of course we have Easter!! We have been sitting on (not literally of course) so many different kinds of amazing crystal eggs; we are simply desperate to share them with you all ready for Easter!! Lots of us are still trying to eat a tiny bit healthily in line with new years resolutions so instead of giving the temptation of chocolate, give a crystal egg instead. They last forever, look beautiful and come with a meaning that would make any heart melt, not to mention to exquisite packaging!
So its busy times here at Crystal Harmony but we love every minute of it and love to interact and engage with YOU, our precious customers – please feel free to talk to us anytime, we are always available at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care, sending you all an abundance of crystal harmony, joy and happiness xxxxxx
