Creating your own Sacred Space

SacredSpace

It’s important to take time to step back to rejuvinate and replenish yourself. A time for reflection, for looking within, assessing and setting intentions. For some it can be a certain activity or ritual that helps them feel relaxed and replenished and for some it can be a certain place. We wanted to share a few tips on how to make a rad boho inspired space to wind down, reflect on your journey and just relax.

1. Location, location, location. The space can be small or large, inside or out as long as it encourages a peaceful mindset, a place to replenish your mind, body & soul.

2. Find inspiration in what you love. Chose what smells, sounds, looks, and feels good to you. Things that give you energy, inspire you. This could be comfy cushions, scarves, blankets, vision boards, art, stones & crystals, essential oil diffusers. You name it.

3. Journal. Have something you can write on, to record any questions, feelings or inspirations from your day. It gives you a chance to express yourself and allows you to dig deep, reflect and encourages you to relax and unwind.

4. Add plants & flowers, they increase energy, color & oxygen. Different colours represent different feelings & emotions, include colours that align with your intentions.

5. It is important to enter your space with your intentions clear, to leave the chaos outside of your space, so as to allow cultivation of only your truest potential.

Remember that this space is yours, created by your intuition. Honour that intuition, let it flow through you, don’t be afraid to make alterations to your space at anytime as you progress through your journey.

Confessions from a Boho Fashionista: I Heart Crystals

_P9A9190My Top Five Sacred Stones and Their Special Meanings.

We’d been to that old lodge on the trip up to Lion Creek many times before, but I’d never noticed the mysterious tray that sat beside the other jewels and rings that were being sold there. It caught my eye because a thousand beams of light and colors danced from the tray to the windows of the shop, calling me to see what was inside.

“They’re crystals,” said the old woman who owned the lodge,

“They will inspire your intentions.”

“Intentions?” I asked.

“Yes, there’s a special crystal for every season, reason and chapter. Look,” She pulled out a pink stone, “This one is for love and grounding! Keep it with you always.”

I smiled at her, bought five of the pink stones and left the lodge.  Since that day at the lodge I’ve learned some seriously special things about crystals and their meanings.

Here Are My Top Five Sacred Stones and Their Special Meanings:

Rose Quartz:

Many bohemian bellas worship this stone because it is known to bring unconditional love. It’s said that in ancient times, goddesses would use the stone to pray for everlasting romantic love.  The magical thing about rose quartz is that although the crystal is meant to bring everlasting love, its intention is based around reawakening one’s heart, personal fulfillment and innate contentment. You know, like-to love another, you must first love yourself!

tiny-devotions-mala-beads-white-jade-malas-rhodonite-black-onyx-grey-pearl-rudraksha_largeWhite Jade:

This is the ultimate stone for dreamers. White jade is a seriously mystical stone, as it brings potential, focus and force to the auspicious dreams and goals that we seek.  Back in the day, magical individuals would encourage people to wear this stone, as it dispelled negativity and helped them to see themselves for who they really were. White Jade has been known through the ages to bless whatever it touches and help individuals realize their dreams. Dream on, dreamers!

Carnelian:

Leadership, endurance, motivation. This deep rusty stone embodies all of these strong female energies. I’ve always carried carnelian with me in times when I’ve felt timid or untrusting of a particular situation. This stone helps individuals step into their power, feel confident and trust the sweet strength within.

Sand_and_Ocean_mediumTurquoise:

This is the stone of highest protection. Goddesses and gurus will find it visually very striking, but it’s meaning is also intense. Turquoise carries the wisdom of basic truth, and protects whoever carries it from any harm.  Keeping turquoise around the house or in your boho bag will shield you from negativity, and keep you safe.

Onyx:

Black Onyx has been known to defend against negative energies. Bad boss, crazy co-worker, sibling rivalry? Keep black onyx with you or, wear your black onyx mala, and negative energies will remain at bay. This stone has been known to sharpen the senses, create self-confidence and create a healthy sense of egotism.

These are my favourite stones at the moment, but they are always changing! There are so many special stones and uses, from amethyst to amazonite. So go, boho goddesses and check out which stones speak to your reason, season or chapter 😉

Confessions of a Boho Fashionista

Hey Boho Beauties,

I’m warming up with a cup of sweet cinnamon tea and I thought I’d open up my moleskin and pop down some intentions for the weekend. That’s right bellas—it’s not just for New Years or special occasions, the power of intention works all the time.

The greatest time for goddesses to set intentions is in the soft light of the morning, while your dreams are still fresh and your heart is wide open.

It’s winter-time in Canada, but a true gypsy keeps her summer-heart all year round. That’s why as I write this down, I’m reflecting on the spirit of the summer passed and the nights I spent watching dragon flies dance (just like we gypsies do) and the Super moon that lit up the night sky.

A Super moon is a special phenomenon that happens very rarely. This chance occurrence creates a serious sense of magic and creativity. In ancient times, beautiful princesses who adorned themselves in crystals and gemstones would sit under the moon, cast their dreams below its light and pray for the creative genius that would spark from the moon’s light.

The Super moon does more than just spark creativity—it wraps a warm sheath of unconditional love and divine power on the beauty who dances under its light. When you’re under the glow of the super moon, you trust in your creative nature without a shadow of a doubt. This is because the Super moon provides unconditional love that guides us on our bohemian paths.

In the chill of the winter, when the sky is dark and the moon is nowhere to be found, I’m wearing my Supermoon Mala and setting my intentions on the divine creativity that lives deep within us all.

Put on your Super Moon Mala’s beauties, remember your summer-heart and go light some creative sparks.

Peace, Love and Magic from Bohemia
