What is Reiki?

Reiki is an alternative healing technique that promotes and awakens health & well-being to the individual receiving this healing energy. Reiki (also known as Universal life force energy) dates back to ancient times when it was used to stimulate the body's own innate healing powers by bringing balance and harmony to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Reiki is the energy that gives life to all living things. In some cultures it is known as Ki or Chi; while in others it is referred to as Prana or even the Holy Spirit. 

The Reiki practitioner doesn't send or direct this energy from themselves, but rather they act like a conduit which allows this healing life force energy to flow through them and their hands. Reiki then goes where it needs to go. It is not the practitioner that heals the client but actually the client receiving the Reiki, who is able to tap into their own innate healing abilities. This allows for one to come into harmony with their truest potential in all facets of life.

What are some of the benefits of Reiki?

  • Reduces stress and promotes ultimate relaxation
  • Enhances the body's own self healing mechanisms
  • Supports immune system function
  • Restores overall energy and vitality
  • Promotes a more restful sleeping pattern
  • Minimizes short an along term imbalances in the body
  • Helps dissolve negative subconscious imprints
  • Brings forth conscious awareness of patterns that longer serve you
What to expect during a Reiki session

    The person receiving the Reiki remains fully clothed during the session while lying comfortably on the bed, covered with a blanket. Bolsters and pillows are available as well. Sessions usually last 1 hour and can be done with a hands on or hands off approach, depending on the comfort level of the recipient. During the treatment, the clinician moves their hands into specific positions on (or off) the body, during which time the recipient may feel warmth, tingling, or an energetic pressure change. Often times the recipient with drift off into a deep meditative state or lucid dream state. Some people on the other hand may fall asleep. You will still receive the benefits of Reiki if you are asleep. Reiki has no contradictory side effects and requires no concentration or effort by the client.

    Blissful music, tranquil nature sounds, aromatherapy and crystals may also be included as part of this restorative service to further enhance the healing experience.

    Many people incorporate Reiki into their monthly self-love and care regime just as they would with massage therapy or acupuncture. This avoids health crises from arising, while creating consistent results and a higher vibrational living.

    What to expect after a Reiki session

    The therapeutic effects of Reiki will continue to take place for several days (and even longer) after the treatment has taken place. This is your body continuing to restore itself back into harmony and balance.

    Bodycherish offers Reiki, Crystal Healing and Chakra Balancing ~ all to inspire higher vibrational living. All life & business coaching clients receive Reiki (in person or via distance) each month as part of their program.

    Saturn Goes Retrograde... Why This is Mega-Good!

    Saturn goes retrograde April 17, 2018!

    If this post caught your eye, it is probably because you've heard about Mercury Retrograde, which has a bad rap in mainstream media these days. Well, this post is to assure you that when Saturn goes retrograde there is nothing to fear! It is also important to clarify that this is not the same as when "Saturn Returns." That is a whole different ball game which you can learn about here.

    The reason this planetary retrograde is favourable for us is that it triggers us to dive a little deeper and explore what it is that our soul truly yearns for us to do, be and experience in this lifetime. When this retrograde cycle comes around it lasts about 4 months at which time we are given an opportunity for self-discovery and contemplation.

    This delicious period literally speeds up the rate at which we can discover and unlock our purpose in this life or incarnation.

    If you've been feeling a little lost lately or out of sorts, then this is your time to go within so that by August you come out feeling sparkly and bright, connected and aligned to what you are truly meant to do. Introspection, journaling, alone time (especially in nature) is excellent during this time. If it is difficult to find alone time or get outside, trying bringing nature's elements to you. You can do this by working with healing crystals (placing in your pockets, holding during meditation or reading or wearing as jewelry). Essential oils (sourced from the plant kingdom) are also great to accompany you. Diffusing or nebulizing them in your home is a sure fire way to bring Mama Nature's healing energy into your home.

    So I hope you feel excited to hear of this planetary cycle and look forward with eagerness to where you'll be and how you'll feel come August! This is also an incredibly powerful and effective time to enrol in a self development course or study group. I have created a Signature 16 Week Program called Elevate Your Life (and become an energetic match to your deepest desires & wildest dreams).

    This program is for you, if you're in your 30's and did what society expected of you, and despite that, you are:

    • Zapped of Energy and Lacking Magic & Inspiration in Your Life
    • Feeling Unfulfilled & Disconnected From Your True Passions & Purpose
    • Wondering "Is This As Good As It Gets?" As You Go Through Life on Auto-Pilot

    EYL Signature Coaching System unlike anything else on the market. It is a truly unique & multi-faceted approach to reaching high levels of success & fulfillment. This offering takes you through a step-by-step sequence, with key milestones, which will unleash & activate your highest potential. Although an effective system is in place, there is also flexibility & flow to ensure service is custom-tailored to your unique needs. This signature sequence ensures you move through & experience positive transformation so that you leave feeling wildly obsessed with life (& elevated to your new energy set point or vibrational frequency). Once this happens, your life will just keep getting better and better. The sky is the limit with no goal too big or out of reach.

    Enrollment hits max capacity every single season & now includes a LIVE in-person mastermind event I host for the Super-Tribe of women I work with!

    If this excites you, feel free to explore more details here:-) 

    Interview: How BODYCHERISH came to be through my own journey to self-love & care

    I have a pretty unusual story with how bodycherish came to be. I wasn't sure if I wanted to share these real, raw (not all pretty) personal details but then I met the right woman to open up with (Alanna who is a Canadian mama on a journey to live wholehearted, simple and clean). She's awesome and so is her lovely + informative site (which is now called Divine Mamahood and is currently under construction).

    Christine, you're a Certified Physiologist & Exercise Therapist, specializing in injury rehabilitation and fitness. That sounds like a fulfilling job in itself; what motivated you to want to do more and create BodyCherish? 

    So many reasons! BodyCherish is reflective of everything that I am passionate & interested in, including taking a more holistic approach to health (body, mind and spirit) and practicing radical self love & care along the way. BodyCherish supports this approach through the crystal essence infused, organic skincare as well as the services that are soon to be offered. It is my belief that pursuing your passions in life (those things that light you up) are of the utmost importance to ones well-being. I believe that following your passions is a way to practice radical self-love and that is what is truly fulfilling to me. It’s like saying “Yes!” to the Universe "I do deserve to do things that nourish my spirit and bring me joy."


    Something that I haven't come across in the green beauty world is this infusion of Crystal Essences into skin care. How did you come up BodyCherish and this unique concept?

    I can actually pin point the day in which I received the inspired idea to formulate my own green beauty products. It was November 15th, 2014 and I was submerged in a 2 week long road trip from Alberta through to the southern states. Along the way, I spent most of my time fully immersed in nature, exploring national parks, hiking and camping most nights while sleeping in a tent under the stars. There was one particular day that I saw so many beautiful & breathtaking places that Mama Nature had to offer. It was these experiences that I feel opened me up to receive what I call a divinely inspired idea. I was driving along a windy road, entering Sedona, Arizona when the idea hit me like a lightening bolt. That idea was I must make body butters infused with crystal essences. That is where the idea was planted and it has been an ongoing work in progress that has evolved ever since. Interestingly enough, my company just so happened to debut it’s launch exactly one year later to the day, on November 15, 2015.

    I absolutely LOVE working with crystals & I am always interested in learning more about the truly remarkable healing benefits that each stone holds. It is this draw toward the elemental kingdom (and different energy practices in general) that has compelled me to become a Certified Crystal Healer & Advanced Reiki Practitioner. Making crystal essences is how I am able to add the energetic properties of the actual crystal to each BodyCherish product. I really believe in the powers that these crystal essences have to promote healing and awaken well-being in the body. Each product has a different combination of crystal essences added to offer further benefits to the body, mind and spirit, in addition to the already nourishing organic ingredients that make up each body butter and oil.

    Have you always been an advocate for radical self-care and holistic wellness?

    Not at all, but let me elaborate. For the majority of my twenties I had a chemical saturated body, inflamed red skin, cystic acne, eczema patches, allergic skin reactions (hives and itching), mood irritability, unhealthy relationships, chronic insomnia, stress, stress & more stress, poor eating habits, crummy self esteem and body image, irregular exercise habits & low energy, zero spiritual practice, an ever going battle up and down on the weigh scale, minimal to no leisure pursuits & a downright disconnect with my true self & higher purpose. Back then I worked all week just for the weekends to drink alcohol. I had no sense of true fulfillment. Sure, I did occasional yoga and maybe (with struggle) made it to the gym but that was it. From the outside, I had what seemed like it all (I was married with a good paying job, a nice house and plans for having a baby). Truth is that it felt empty and caused something inside me start to stir. I wanted more out of life. I wanted to feel good; to feel energized and inspired. So, my first step was cleaning up my diet. I started to juice vegetables and became more and more mindful and curious about what I was putting into body and onto my skin and how it would make me feel.

    Although I was starting to get healthier through nutrition and non-toxic beauty products, at that time I was not yet into crystals, and energetic practices in general. It was a life altering summer back in 2013 that really changed things. It was that summer that I got some major wake up calls from the Universe in how I wanted to live and experience my life and how what i had been doing wasn't working anymore. See, I sustained a traumatic brain injury that included fracturing the left side of my skull and also losing 100% my sense of smell. Soon after this incident, which also coincided with me going through a divorce, losing my house and also my sense of identity in this world; I found myself being guided down a much more spiritual path and approach to life. At the time I didn’t view it as “spiritual” but rather as a necessity to start prioritizing myself by practicing self-love and care practices which were essential to get my life back on track.

    These practices (yoga, meditation, gratitude journaling, dietary changes, and eliminating drama in general) all influenced me positively and I started to notice an ever increasing optimism, and fulfillment, as well as sensitivity to the energies around me. A big part of this was also my ever increasing draw towards crystals and their healing benefits. It makes perfect sense to me now that following the loss of one sense, my body had to adapt and make up for it by enhancing a different sense; I feel it was my loss of smell that resulted in my heightened sensitivity toward energies and the crystal kingdom, but also my ability to trust my own intuitive guidance system in order to make decisions confidently.

    So it may seem surprising, even bizarre, that the formulator and creator of a skincare line has never been able herself to smell the products created. What’s even more interesting about all of this is that had it not been for what may appear like a major barrier (my loss of smell) I don’t think I would have experienced the same heightened sensitivity toward energies and crystals; nor would I have been compelled to make some major changes in my life that required radical self-love and care.

    What is your process like from start to finish when you're handcrafting an item?

    Research, research, research! Mixed in with trial and error and eventual application on my own skin. I feel I am the best test subject as my skin is incredibly sensitive. The most time consuming phase of the handcrafting process is the creation of the crystal essences. Click here to read my blog post on how I make them. Other than that, the beauty butters take a fair bit of time as they require both melting down of ingredients, refrigeration for the perfect amount of time (with regular stirring), followed by whipping, jarring and then labeling. I don't mind the time my products take to make as I truly enjoy making them & take pride in the quality of what I am creating.

    What message do you most hope to pass on to women?

    Your past does not define you & where you stand today does not determine where you’ll be in the future. You get to decide RIGHT NOW, by the empowered choices you make today, what your future experiences will be made of. I know this from my own transformational changes for the better. Any difficult or trying time in one's life can be a catalyst for where you choose to go next. You can choose to respond in a way that proves your resilience and strength. You can step forward into a life you only dreamed of. That's the life you deserve to live.

    What is a Crystal Essence and how are they made?

    So what is a crystal essence? It is common knowledge that there are many health benefits to the body & skin from using pure botanicals, essential oils and other carrier oils sourced from the plant kingdom. However, there isn’t as much discussion around the healing and beautifying effects from mineral kingdom (aka crystals and gems) which are sourced directly from Mamma Nature, herself. 

     A lot of health conscious or spiritually minded folks will purchase these beautiful crystals & gems for their aesthetically pleasing quality, but also for their unique metaphysical properties. For example, wearing, holding or even placing a crystal close to your body will cause a subtle effect to your body's own energy field.  

    You can think of the body's energy field like a glass of water. Placing a crystal on or near the body is like dropping another liquid substance into the glass of water.  Depending on the potency of that substance, it will then permeate into the surrounding water, causing a subtle change to occur. There are countless resources that explain in detail the physical, emotional and spiritual healing effects which each crystal holds.

    Dr. Masaru Emoto has extensive research which scientifically proves that water that has not been contaminated or altered (sourced directly from the spring) is the most programmable substance on earth. This means it can be imbued (charged or saturated) with the same metaphysical properties (think: energetic footprint) of the crystal that is placed within it or beside it within a larger glass jar (if made via the indirect method). 

    Dr. Emoto’s studies scientifically prove that spring water can also be programmed with our thoughts, attitudes and emotions. His studies show that loving words and positive thoughts directed at water create a brilliant & complex snowflake pattern when viewed with a powerful microscope. If you are curious to learn more, check out his best-selling book, The Hidden Messages in Water.

    A crystal essence (also known as a gem elixir) is when water has been imbued with the same energy or vibrational frequency that the crystal possesses. Since water is very sensitive to its surrounding environment, it is very important that the water used is sourced from the highest quality spring water that has not been contaminated with chemicals (tap water with fluoride, bromine & chlorine) or that has been stripped of its healthy minerals. It is also important to use water that has only been stored in glass packaging as plastic can distort the water’s natural energetic footprint.

    How are BODYCHERISH’S crystal essences made?

    BodyCherish's Crystal essences are made from glass bottled glacial spring water. The crystals used for each essence are first cleansed (physically and energetically) and then placed inside the water and covered for a 24 hour period. BodyCherish maximizes the healing energies imbued into the water by placing the glass jars (with water & crystal inside) in direct sunlight during the day of a super full moon.

    This enhances the yang energy offered from the Sun's rays. Then the glass jar is left overnight to absorb the powerful yin energy that is offered from the light of the super full moon. This process energizes the essence while balancing it - think of it as a beautiful & complimentary energy infusion.

    During the water imbuement, beautiful angelic music is played to offer even more healing vibrations to space in which the essences are created. Positive affirmations and the healing intentions of each crystal are also written and placed on the exterior of the glass jars.

    Once all steps have been completed, the crystal is carefully removed and remaining water is the pure essence which has the same energetic frequency and metaphysical healing properties as the actual stone! This pure essence is then mixed with 50% grade vodka or brandy to preserve. These jars area sealed tight and are known as the mother batches.  Then a small portion of essence from the mother batch is taken and diluted into a dark amber glass bottle filled with additional glacial spring water and grapefruit seed extract (acts as a natural preservative). This ensures the shelf life of the essence.

    This process works on the principle of homeopathy. Diluting the mother batch essence does not minimize the energetic frequency of the water; it only takes away the majority of the alcohol content.  Remember, water is programable and takes on the energy pattern of what it is mixed with. This new bottle is then surrounded by 7 clear quartz points to further amplify & charge the essence and it's intention. It is these essences that are then added by 2% total volume to the entire line of BodyCherish's Organic Beauty & Facial Ritual products. These high vibrational crystal essences are also added to the  Bath Soak Salts and brand new Crystal Candles!

    What is Crystal Healing?

    Crystal Healing is an alternative healing technique that directly influences the energetic systems of the human body and intern positively impacts the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Wearing, holding or even placing a crystal close to your body will cause a subtle effect to your body's own energy field. To further amplify the truly remarkable healing powers of the crystal kingdom, one can place them in a grid formation. I offer my clients crystal layouts that are placed upon different sacred geometry symbols, including the Seed of Life, Flower of Life and Metatrons cube. This further empowers and amplifies the intention of the healing session. What exactly is sacred geometry? You can think of it as the form beneath all life and points to a divine order in our reality. We can follow that order from the smallest invisible atom and all the way to the infinite stars, finding ourselves at each step along the way.

    How does is work?

    Each crystal has a unique metaphysical properties (energetic blueprint) which promote healing on different levels of your being. This is impart due to how each crystal resonates differently with each chakra centre of the human body and energy field. You may have heard about the chakras but aren't totally clear on what exactly they are and how they work. You can think of the 7 major chakras like energy centres of the of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. These bodies are also known as the subtle bodies and a chakra is an energy point (or node) in the subtle body versus the physical body. You can also picture a chakra as a funnel shaped energy centre (or vortex) that corresponds with many meridian points and nerve bundles in the human body.

    There are different ways a person can open, clear and balance their main 7 chakras. This is important because when a chakra centre is moving optimally, then that area of ones life is also flowing optimally. However, when a chakra is blocked in moving poorly, the area of one's life that it directly impacts will also not be in flow.

    For example, the Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine and the corresponding colour is red. When balanced, it will bring about good health, feeling grounded, safe and secure and prosperous. However, when unbalanced or blocked it will bring about feelings of insecurity, fear, financial difficulties, boredom, lethargy, chronic pain (often in the low back) and depression. Physically, an unbalanced root chakra will bring about dry, pale, blotchy skin.

    Each chakra resonates with different foods, colours, sounds, mantras, activities, yoga poses, affirmations, essential oils and of course crystals!

    From a scientific perspective, Dr. Masaru Emoto has extensive research which proves that water that has not been contaminated or altered (sourced directly from the spring) is the most programmable substance on earth. This means it can be imbued (charged or saturated) with the same metaphysical properties (think: energetic footprint) of the crystal that is placed within it or beside it within a larger glass jar.

    When we realize we can positively effect water with the energy of a crystal, it starts to make more sense that we can positively influence our own bodies as well, given they are 75% water!

    What are some of the benefits of Crystal Healing?

    This healing technique alleviates chakra imbalances by dissolving energy blocks, allowing life force energy to flow smoothly and freely to your being. The benefit of chakras moving optimally will literally influence every possible aspect of your life in a positive way. Remember, EVERYTHING is energy first and foremost and before anything can come into manifestation in this world, it first starts as energy. That includes love, joy, abundance, security and health, but it also includes sadness, shame, depression, conflict, pain, disease and scarcity just to name a few. When you first focus on changing your energy, the ripple effect of positive life changes become inevitable. This I know from first hand experience. Read article here if curious.

    Crystal Healing Offerings:

    Each offering can be added on to a Reiki session to further amplify the intention and focus of the healing session. I highly recommend combining these two services for optimal effect. Please email me directly with intentions of your healing session and I will tailor a custom crystal layout that is specifically suited to your needs and most desired outcome(s). I take the utmost care in the preparation of my crystals being used, including physically and energetically cleansing them prior to each the session, as well as space clearing the room between clients. This ensures a crystal clear, yet calming & high vibrational space.

    To assist my clients take their healing experience and intention home with them after the session, I gift each one with a crystal that corresponds to the healing intention. This along with a gift bag of positive affirmations and aromatherapy ensures you continue to hold the energy of the healing session as the days and weeks unfold.

    3 ways to ring in the Autumn Equinox

     

    The seasons are changing & autumn is definitely in the air! I love everything about this season including the cool+crisp fresh air, comfy clothes, as well as curling up & getting cozy on the couch. This year Bodycherish is celebrating the autumn festivities by bringing back the Organic Beauty Butter from last winter... but this time in Vanilla Spice! These luxury green beauty butters as well as a special edition candle called Let's Get Cozy will launch on the fall equinox (September 22nd) which also happens to coincide with the end of mercury retrograde (hallelujah!). I don't know about you, but I have most definitely felt the effects of this retrograde. With it concluding the same day of the equinox, I cannot help but feel compelled to start fresh and change things up.. in all areas of my life for that matter. Below I have shared 3 easy ways to "spice up your life" (pun intended) with this seasonal change:

    1) Clear the clutter. I know it is more common to clear out the closet and house of clutter when spring hits, but I like to do an overhaul with each season change. It helps me make space for the new. This includes donating clothes I have not worn for > 1 year. You know you are just as guilty. They are sitting there and you keep saying one day you will wear that shirt. Really, you don't even like the damn shirt.. you just feel guilty and like you "should" because you bought it. That is so silly. Someone out there needs that shirt and would actually really like it. So now is the time to declutter & donate. Trust me, you will feel lighter and brighter after! Like a load has been taken off.

    2) Spice it up! No, not with spiced rum :-) ... but with scents that infuse your home and even your body with something different than summertime coconuts. There is something so delicious about curling up on the couch with a good book while having a candle lit and that is what has inspired Bodycherish's Let's Get Cozy Candle, scented with organic essential oils of vanilla, nutmeg and a touch cinnamon and clove. This high vibration candle is absolutely perfect for both autumn and winter as it is these seasons that have the most family gatherings. Inside this candle you'll find flower essence of holly.. which is all about opening the heart. Once fully burned you'll find a raw clear quartz point inside. A  little treasure to keep for you or a loved one! It's also nice to occasionally change the scents we apply to our body. The special edition Organic Beauty Butter {vanilla spice edition) has a delicious scent of vanilla, cocao butter, & subtle notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove.

    3) Bring the outdoors inside. With cooler temperatures you may feel like staying inside more and that means less time in nature. Most all people tend to spend less time in nature during the autumn and winter months. We exchange our outdoor walks or runs with some good ol' sweaty spin or hot yoga classes. I definitely do this but there is actually a side effect of being less connected from nature. This leads to feeling less grounded or rooted (more flighty and stressed out). Being in nature soothes our souls but also helps our physical body stay in equilibrium. So what can we do? Well, we can bring nature indoors! This may include investing in a pink himalayan salt lamp you have been eyeing. These lamps change the quality of the air in your home as if you were near the ocean, among many other benefits. Another way is going to the local greenhouse and splurging on some house plants that are especially helpful for the air quality they promote. One of my favourite and most hearty house plants is the snake plant. I have owned mine for for 2 years and 8 months and it is still going strong! Yet another way, that can be a family fun day, is by bringing the kids outdoors to pick a few favourite leaves or pinecones from the ground. You can then hot glue these beauties to a pre-made branch style wreath (found at local craft stores). You can also find your elements from nature while on vacation. Bringing home sand or seashells is a great souvenir from your travels and also looks pretty displayed inside a vase.

    ~Happy Equinox Green Beauty Babes!~  

     

    Crystal Healing Benefits of Larimar and Sugilite

    Larimar: crystal of serenity, promoting relaxation in every aspect. As a soothing water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides excessive passion into peace.  Larimar is particularly helpful for cartilage conditions and constricted joints.  Larimar is used to enhance alternative treatments, particularly those involving heat, light, and water. Larimar relieves high blood pressure and stress-related illnesses, and may alleviate excessive Fire element energy such as infection, fever and inflammation. It may also be used to treat skin disorders aggravated by stress, such as hives, rashes, eczema and psoriasis. 

    Larimar is connected to the goddess energies and helps women to re-attune to their innate femininity and restore their connection with nature. It emanates vivaciousness, humor, and a sense of one's own power. It helps women to call upon the goddess within to fully manifest their highest purpose in life. 

    Larimar effortlessly induces a deep meditative state, raising consciousness and harmonizing the body and soul to new vibrations. It dissolves the boundaries of spiritual self and allows one's true pathway in life to be revealed. Larimar facilitates angelic contact and communication with other realms. 

    Larimar is an excellent stone for finding a soulmate. It facilitates the healing of unresolved issues or fears, trauma to the heart, or past-life relationships.

    Sugilite: known as a premier “love stone for this age,” embodying the perfection of Divine love and the manifestation of this energy on the Earth plane. It brings the gifts of wisdom and spiritual devotion, helping one to understand that Truth is the highest form of love, and living in one’s own truth is not only healing but empowering.

    Manganese within Sugilite helps absorb negative energy and is an excellent pain reliever, especially for headaches, joint pain and discomfort. It may be beneficial for fighting off viruses and inflammation, and is one of the premier stones to aid in the treatments of cancer by lifting despair, calming emotions, and channeling healing energy into the body. Light colored Sugilite is considered especially beneficial for cleansing and purifying the lymph system.

    An exceptional crystal for awakening the Crown Chakra, Sugilite infuses the body with light, bringing spiritual and unconditional love in through the Crown and down to the Base Chakra, aligning all of the chakras as it goes. It is a powerful attractor of healing energies, and has surfaced to further an awareness of the connection between the well-being of the mind and the well-being of the body.  

    Sugilite is one of the very best crystals for those who are highly sensitive and take on whatever energies are around them. Sugilite creates a warm, protective “shield of Light,” keeping the wearer impervious to negativity and the disharmony of others.

    If you like the sounds of what these crystal have to offer, you may be drawn to learn more about the Pink Himalayan Soak Salts and Therapeutic Soak Salts, which both contain larimar and sugilite crystal essences. This ensures your bath time experience is the ultimate healing experience for the mind, body and spirit. Click here to see salts!
