The Dream World

Does anyone else wake up and remember their really crazy dream and think what was that trying to tell me?! Sometimes we don’t remember them, actually 95% of the time we don’t remember our dreams. We can set intentions to remember them more often and we can also learn a lot from our dreams.

Dreams occur during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage of sleep, this stage normally happens after the first 90 minutes of sleeping. We dream for about 2 hours a night and have several dreams that last anywhere between 5 to 20 miniutes. During REM stage our eyes are rapidly moving in all directions but they are not sending any visual information to our brain although our brain is active during this stage.

We can learn things from our dreams – you can start a dream journal to record them and notice any patterns in your dreams that your subconscious may be trying to show you. You should keep this journal on your bedside table so when you wake up you can write your dream out straight away or you may forget if you leave it too long. You can set intentions to remember your dreams as well. Once you are relaxed and have regulated your breathing say the following “tonight I will remember my dream, I have fantastic dream recall”. The more often you practice this affirmation the more you will start to remember your dreams so you can start to follow patterns in your dream journal.

We have the power to control our dreams narrative, characters and environment. This is called Lucid Dreaming – you become aware that you are dreaming and gain some control. Lucid dreaming has some benefits to it such as becoming more self aware of our thoughts and emotions and also bringing out your creativity whilst you sleep! We spend about a third of our lives sleeping so its pretty cool we can become conscious whilst being unconscious! You can start practicing to lucid dream by asking yourself throughout the day whilst you are awake “Am I dreaming right now?” the more often you ask yourself this you will end up asking yourself the same question whilst you are sleeping and then you will have the “AHA I’m dreaming” moment!

Remember everything happens with practice so keep practicing and keep journaling. There are so many books out there that can help you interpret your dreams, how to dream journal and lucid dream! There is even some crystals that can help you, Blue Howlite is great for encouraging dream recall and Caribbean Calcite can help aid in lucid dreaming! Have a look at some of the products below that we sell online and in the shop that can help you with your dreaming adventures!

The Evil Eye & Hamsa Hand

These are probably two of the most recognisable talismans in the world, but do you know the meaning behind them? Both are rich in history and have been used in so many different cultures and religion, but predominately they are used as a sign of protection.

The Evil Eye

In all cultures, religions, myths and traditions, chances are there is reference to the evil eye/ all seeing eye. Originating in Greece, this symbol is a popular element and is seen in countless forms including jewellery, stories and paintings. But what is the meaning behind it?

The evil eye is a curse from Greek culture that has been passed through many decades – it dates back to 3,000BC! It states that when someone is envious of you, they have the power to give you an ‘evil glare’ and send bad luck your way. Obviously this isn’t ideal, so people sought out protection from this evil eye.

One of the most popular forms of protection is wearing the evil eye symbol on jewellery which acts as a repellent and reflects the power of the evil eye. Typically the eye is blue and white, but you can get different colours which have additional meanings. For example, an orange colour can also represent happiness and creativity, whilst dark blue is for karma.

If your reasons for wearing an evil eye bracelet is related to emotions, such as fear, love etc, then wear it on your left wrist. This is because the left hand side of your body is related to your heart and emotions. If you were wearing it to help with areas outside of your personal life, such as career, money etc, then you wear it on your right wrist. This is because the right hand side of your body is our analytical and logic side.

The Hamsa Hand

This symbol was first seen in ancient Mesopotamia, which is now part of the Middle East. It is one of the most popular symbols for protection against the evil eye. It is traditionally seen as a hand with two thumbs pointing in opposite directions and three fingers in the middle. It is often depicted with a large evil eye in the centre of the palm.

In an upright position, it is a sign against evil. It repels negativity of others and protects you from your own negative thoughts such as greed, envy and hatred. The fingers may be spread apart to repel evil.

If the hand faces downwards, the Hamsa represents abundance and goodness. The fingers are generally closer together, as an invitation for good things to flow into your life.

Crystal Grids

Have you ever heard of a crystal grid before? A crystal grid is an arrangement of crystals on a grid following a geometry pattern and when crystals are placed in a certain arrangement the energies become even more powerful as the pattern enhances the energy flow. Crystal grids can be used to manifest something you need, set intentions, healing and also be used to during a meditation. The crystal grids themselves can have lots of different geometry patterns on them but one of the most popular patterns is called the “Flower of Life”. The flower of life represents the cycle of creation – it shows how all life came from one source, which is the circle in the middle of the grid.

Setting Up Your Crystal Grid:

So first of all: what is the purpose of your grid? You can set your grid up to fulfil any intention, so think clearly on what you want to achieve. The combination of crystals and sacred geometry greatly strengthens your intention and allows you to manifest much more quickly – so ensure you have your intention set in your mind when you are creating your grid.

The first thing you need is a focus stone that links directly to your intention. Let’s say we are setting up a grid to attract love into your life – you would choose your centre stone thats aligned with that purpose. Let’s use Rose Quartz as our centre stone as its aligned with the heart chakra and opens us up to loving energies. You would place this down in the centre of the grid! Then you can choose another 6 to 12 crystals aligned with the same purpose – this could be amethyst for stress and anxiety, or red aventurine which is for love as well. They can all be of the same crystal or different – do what ever feels right for you! You are also going to need Quartz points as well – quartz is a master healer and amplifier and will direct the energy to flow in the direction it faces.

Place your other chosen crystals around your centre stone, leaving a gap between each one. Think about the geometry pattern you’ve gone with when you place the crystals – are there specific points in the pattern? Once you’ve done this, you can place your quartz points around the outside of the centre stone – these act as stepping stones and help connect each crystal to one another. Remember that the point directs the energy so if you place the points towards the Rose Quartz, it will send the energy into it. If you place the points facing away from the Rose Quartz, the energy will flow out from it. The idea is that the energy flows through each crystal, amplifying your intentions and goals.

Activating Your Crystal Grid:

So now you have your grid set up, you’ll want to cleanse and charge the crystals and the grid. You can use another quartz point to do this or you can just use your hand – its all about the intention! Move your hand or point and go counter clockwise above the grid, and ask that “All and any previous energy is removed from the crystals and grid”. Once you feel you have cleansed it, you now need to charge your grid. This time, go clockwise above the grid with your hand or point and ask that the healing properties of the crystals influence the space for your highest good. You can now set your final intention – for our purpose we can say “I am loved and I radiate a loving energy to myself and people around me”.

You can leave your grid intact for as long as you feel you need to. You can change it whenever you want – just make sure you follow the same steps. Also think about where you want to keep it – perhaps under your bed or on your altar? Have fun with your crystal grid and do what feels right for you!

We sell crystal grid books and starter packs which includes your small quartz points and one large Quartz point! Our crystal sets are also great for forming your crystal grid.

Self Love

What is self love? Self love is about taking responsibility to care for your wellbeing. I am going to give you some advice and tips on how you can implement this into your life! So grab a drink and get comfortable!

Learning to love yourself can be really hard sometimes because you go face to face with your self beliefs. It’s important to be patient and give yourself the time in your life to understand yourself. Your beliefs about yourself can look like this “I don’t love myself” “nobody loves me” “I’m not good enough”. Once you become aware of these thoughts you can start to change them, it’s important to find out where do they come from? Why do you have these beliefs? Allow yourself to feel the emotions that arise when you think of these beliefs, how does it make you feel? Remember that these types of beliefs are not true but the more you tell yourself they are the more deeply rooted they become.

Let’s do a little exercise, write down your beliefs on a piece of paper, next to each negative belief you have about yourself replace it with a positive affirmation. So your belief may be “I am not good enough” replace it with “I am good enough” “Nobody loves me” replaced with “I am loved” and so on. Now take these positive affirmations and keep them safe, when you are cleaning the house or making dinner, going for a walk basically whenever you can, keep repeating your affirmations to your self, you will start to believe they are true and eventually they will become a core belief.

Sometimes we entertain negative people in our lives and this has an effect on us, it is important to set healthy boundaries in your life, and learning that it is ok to say no. If you feel you have negative people around you that drain your energy a good tip is to ask Archangel Michael to cut any invisible ties to anyone thats not serving your highest purpose or your not serving theirs, once you have done this go about your day and see what happens! It is important to protect yourself spiritually, every night call all your energy back to you from any person, place or situation and let go in your mind of anything that is not serving your highest good. You can do this by placing your feet firmly on the ground and saying “I declare my body grounded to the earth right now and so it is” Imagine a magnet in your body and say “I call all of my energy back to me from any place, person or situation right now and so it is” and imagine the magnet drawing all of your energy back to you. Now say “I send back any energy that is not serving me back to where it came from” and imagine that energy leaving you. Now imagine a white light surrounding your aura and body and say “this is my energy shield and nothing shall have access to my energy without my permission”

Take at least 20 minute’s out of your day to care for yourself, this can be having a relaxing bath, going for a walk, meditating or reading a book. Invest in putting yourself first and loving yourself, finding a passion/hobby, you will essentially put out this loving, caring passionate energy that will put you in alignment with your authentic self, your authentic self is who you truly are without the influence of other people, it is an honest representation of who you are and when you are in alignment with this you will start to see miracles happen around you! Trust yourself, love yourself and be patient with yourself. It is ok to have bad days the light cannot exist without darkness, its yin yang energy. We cannot appreciate the good days without learning from the bad days. We are always evolving and learning!

A book I would recommend is “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay, you can order this on the website, in store or over the phone!

Have an amazing day and remember how great and beautiful you are!

Lunar Living

How do you go with the flow of the moon? Well, on the 30th April we have a new moon in the zodiac sign Taurus, this will be the second new moon of the month, it is called a “black moon”. New moon energy is all about planting the seeds, so it’s time to focus on what you want to manifest and set your intentions. As the new moon will be in Taurus, we will have a look at the energy Taurus brings us and combine that energy with the phase of the moon so you can harness this energy in the best way.

Taurus is the 2nd sign of the zodiac and is ruled by the feminine planet Venus, the planet of love. Taurus brings strong, sturdy, reliable and protective energy. This new moon is going to encourage us to re align ourselves with what we desire in our life, questions to ask yourself will be “Does the life I desire align with my beliefs and values? “What negative blocks have I got that is stopping me from reaching my full potential?” “Do I truly believe that I am worthy of the life I desire?”. These are very important questions to ask yourself, in order to manifest your desired life you need to believe you are worthy of it and I mean truly believe. If you feel it is not aligned with your values and beliefs, you need to either re evaluate your values and beliefs or what it is you are asking the Universe for. When you think of your desired life does it light up a spark inside you? Does it resonate with who you are? When it lights up your soul thinking about it, sit with them feelings and believe it is yours already and hold on to the feelings it gives you, the more you feel it the more you believe it and the more you believe it the more you attract it into your life.

Get a pen and paper its prompt time! Start to write down what you want to manifest on paper, writing this down allows you to physically see what you are manifesting, and also physically send it out to the universe to deliver back to you! You should start to feel all the positive feelings it gives you whilst doing this, and don’t forget to show your gratitude for the universe/higher source for where you are right now in your life and where you will be in your life. Once you have written down what you want to manifest you can fold your piece of paper towards you and keep it safe (I normally keep it under my pillow for the night and then place in my journal to reflect on at a later date)

Once you have written your manifestations down you can do a little energy clearing exercise to release any negative blocks and any negative energy. Stand with your feet firmly on the ground and say “I declare my body grounded to the earth right now and so it is” Now visualise a magnet in your stomach and say out loud “I call all of my energy back home to me that may have been taken without my permission” and visualise your energy being attracted back to the magnet in your stomach. Now visualise butterflies surrounding you landing on your body and say out loud “I release any negative blocks and energy that is holding me back and I send it back to where it came from wrapped in love & light. Visualise the butterflies taking this away from you. Finally, visualise a white light inside and surrounding your body and aura and say “This is my energy shield, nothing shall have access to my energy without my permission”.

Remember to stay true to yourself and when you feel like nothing is happening come back to the energy clearing exercise, and to your manifestation letter and allow your self to sit with the feelings it gives you! Remember to BELIEVE in yourself and know you deserve the life you desire!

An Adventure in The Making

Will (my husband) and I have always wanted to travel. We both like to be free, we are always up for and enjoy an adventure. Whether it’s a morning by the sea or visiting somewhere we haven’t been before, we have always enjoyed experiences over anything physical – ‘stuff’.

We had our daughters when we were in our 20s, life happened, we travelled a bit, but the idea still stuck in our minds; that we would travel when we were older. Over the last few years, conversations between us turn to our retirement, travel, we chat about what are going to do, daydream and come up with many ideas (shall we get a van, move to the country, let go of Quest or have a second shop, buy a house abroad, get a canal boat…etc), yet none of them have felt right and it just hasn’t been the right time. Will reached another decade last year (ouch) and we thought the time is really upon us to make some changes… But what would we do? Where we would we go?

Let us take you through our considerations. Quest is happy and the Quest Team is brilliant, so we know we don’t need to worry about it: it’s in good hands. Our daughters are happy and independent, our health is currently good, we are not materialistic, therefore we don’t need a big house and all that comes with its day-to-day running. We like adventure, we love nature, we would like to travel, experience different cultures. Even though it could be prudent to wait for another year or two until the pandemic is well and truly in the distant past, the current situation in Ukraine is over; we concluded there would always be something to stop us.

So, this year, in April we are leaving our home and downsizing to stay in a tiny cabin on the edge of Boxhill. I know some of you have already visited it on a Bliss retreat, healing / meditation session or an evening meditation. If you have, you would know it is literally on the edge of the world…. It’s in nature, with amazing views; we can go for lots of walks, every day breathe the fresh air, and the best thing is we can leave it at any moment, as it will take care of itself, so we can go on our travels to far and distant lands. The other upside is that, of course, we will continue being close enough for us to continue to work in Quest and run all my workshops, courses and more. Our daughter and her boyfriend will get to enjoy our home, whilst Will and I turn into carefree, non-materialistic nomads.

We have running water, electricity, but a camping toilet (yuck). We have to cross a field to get to the cabin which will be fun in the rain, and the mud, but hey ho we will be living the dream (so we hope)…

Currently, Will is busy decorating it. We have visitors that we hadn’t planned for and are trying to move those little visitors out… We have blinds up at the windows now, otherwise the surrounding neighbourhood might have seen more than they bargained for… We have also had hot water and a teeny weeny washing machine plumbed in.

If you have been to my home, you will know I am very minimalist, however the amount of stuff I have cleared out and let go of has surprised me. I cannot believe how much I have accumulated and held on to, we keep clearing and then clearing again, we have very little room as you will soon see and I have been asking myself what do I need? Like, what do I really need?

I realised, I don’t need very much at all.

Once I let go of all my possessions and started again from scratch, it felt good and it feels good now, clearing out things that I haven’t read or done or that don’t bring me joy any more.

So the countdown has begun, Spring is on its way, the clocks are springing forward and the warmer weather is on its way – thank goodness. We have some challenges ahead, and other things to consider, which I will share with you over the next coming weeks (with lots of photos of course). I will keep you updated with the fun, tears and antics of cabin life with my new series – Carolina @ The Cabin, across my social media; Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, blogs and more; for whoever would be interested in how one lives in a small cabin, like, a really small cabin.

Love, Carolina x

Your Inner Guru

This is from The Soul Coach’s fortnightly blog. Check the blogs out for yourself here!

Five years ago, while we were visiting Goa, I was drawn to sit in Satsang with the Guru ‘Sam Darshi’. I thought I would just go once, but I ended up visiting a few times. Will, my husband would sit and read in the café nearby, and I would go off for Satsang and to chat with the Guru.

Satsang simply means ‘in company of others sharing the truth’. We sat in the open air, with a canopy over us, and there were 20 or 30 people in attendance. Sam, the Guru, was dressed in white and sat in a white chair with flowers to one side. We took our shoes off, sat on the floor and listened to music – beautiful music that had a beat and was very calming. Some songs were by Deva Premal, others were quite chanty and I loved them.

I was really uncomfortable during my first visit – my back ached, I fidgeted, I was judging the people around me and my mind was in overload.

What was going to happen? Am I going to be changed? Will I feel nirvana? What is nirvana? Will I feel a presence from the Guru?…

I felt quite anxious, yet excited – but by the end of the first session, I also felt quite underwhelmed; I didn’t get a huge feeling of love. The Guru looked at his watch and actually looked quite bored, which irritated me, and I was wondering what this was all about? (He rambled too, which I found boring and irritating.)

I went back and talked it through with Will, as I was disappointed with the whole experience, but at the same time, and rather strangely, I wanted to go again – something was drawing me back. The next day I went back and the same things happened. Will sat in the café and I went off to Satsang.

I was a little more comfortable this time, perhaps because I knew what was going to happen. A larger group of people had gathered and I felt more at ease. I enjoyed listening to the music, but my mind was still active and I was secretly amused that some people were kissing the Guru’s feet… This time he didn’t ramble. He told stories, laughed and chatted about Spirituality. At the end of this session we danced, which I loved even though I felt a little self-conscious, and I enjoyed watching the others let go and become one with the music. The next day I went back again and felt a deep sense of peace. I felt bliss, happiness, a connection to my stillness. I felt love, I couldn’t explain it but I liked feeling this way…

I went back a few more times, loving the opportunity to sit in a safe, sacred space, in good company and although I never actually spoke to anyone else, I listened, observed and soaked it all up. On my last visit, I asked a question to Sam. That question was: ‘How do I feel bliss like this 24/7? It’s easy to feel it here but when I go back to work, it will be hard’. He answered in six words ‘The mind is a powerful thing’. To be honest I was disappointed by his answer at first. It certainly wasn’t an earth-shattering revelation… Another time he told a story about how he ‘took a group of people on a trip and they stopped on the top of a cliff, where they were eating lunch, dancing and having lots of fun. Someone decided to jump off the cliff into the sea, and they all did it (including Sam) bar one person who flatly refused to jump. They were cajoling him, putting pressure on him to jump, and in the end, he did, but he broke his back as he landed on some rocks. Sam went on with the story of how the man got better over several months and how he didn’t grumble but accepted his fate. He didn’t judge anyone or blame anyone for what happened’. This was a ‘wow’ moment; the man took full responsibility for what had happened to him but, at the same time, I thought ‘if he had listened to himself in the first place, he could have avoided all that’.

During my time in Satsang, I learned a couple of things. Firstly, to be my own guru as only we know what’s right for us. At the Satsung, people were worshipping the Swami as if he was a God, and they were giving their power away to him. My belief is that you need to be your own Guru: listen, observe and reflect. Secondly, the Guru was right: the mind is very powerful. We are manifesting our reality every day, so we can tap into the Bliss, Stillness and Love 24/7 if we choose to.

Now, on reflection, when I first went to Satsang, I realise that not only was my mind on full alert, but my Soul was too and my Soul had recognised something at the Satsang that my mind hadn’t – there was an access to Stillness here and my Soul wanted to rest; it wanted my brain to give up and surrender. My Soul wanted to connect the outer parts of me to the deeper part within me; it wanted my mind and the physical part of me to feel what it was like to be connected to Source, Love, the great Unknown, God (whatever you are drawn to call it) and I’m so glad I listened. Every day I’m finding that the more I connect to my Stillness, the more peace I feel; the more I surrender to what’s happening in the moment, the more still I feel; the more still I’m feeling, the more I am connected to Source.

If you would like to join me in exploring your connection to Stillness and Source and to connect to the guru within you, I am running a workshop on Sunday, March 13th at the beautiful Hartsfield Manor in Betchworth. Click here for more details!

The Importance of Self Love

“Self-love, self-respect, self-worth: There’s a reason they all start with ‘self.’ You can’t find them in anyone else.”


Self Love has become a popular topic recently, but it’s hard to understand what it really means. A lot of people see self love as only being achievable through a makeover, a diet or a new set of clothes, which is not the case. Of course, these things make you feel good and confident at the time, but that feeling fades, and once again you’re left with a sense of unsatisfaction with yourself. This is because self love is not simply a state of feeling good. It is a state of appreciation for oneself on a psychological, spiritual and physical level. It’s being proud of your abilities and talents, grateful for your health, happy that you get to wake up every morning and take on the world. You don’t need to change in order to feel self love, you just need to learn how to appreciate everything you are and everything you can become. Here are some tips on where to start on your self love journey!

1) A great first step is to create a gratitude list or journal. Spend some time to think and write down everything you are grateful for in life, no matter how small or mundane they seem. This will help you embrace all the positivity in your life and why you deserve your love.


2) Remember to treat yourself with kindness. It’s easy to look at yourself and see the ‘flaws’, but this behaviour does nothing but ruin your self esteem. Challenge yourself to look in the mirror and find the things you really like. This isn’t being self absorbed or vain, it’s about appreciating yourself. Change how you view the features you don’t like. Instead of wishing you had bigger eyes, think about how grateful you are to be able to see.


3) Set yourself boundaries. Don’t be afraid to say no to work and activities that deplete you or harm you emotionally and spiritually. If you arranged a meal with your friends but when the day comes around, you’d rather stay at home, then tell them this. Your friends and family will understand that you have limits.


4) Forgive yourself. We punish ourselves when we make mistakes, and relive moments that we regret. To really love yourself, you have to accept that you are not perfect. Practice being less hard on yourself and remember that you can learn and grow from your mistakes.

5) Use crystals to help amplify the loving energies within you. Keep them in your pocket or wear them in a piece of jewellery to remind yourself that you are worthy of love. Rose Quartz helps boost your self love and Carnelian can help you find and release your inner power.

The 7 Chakras

The Chakras are 7 energy points within your body. They start at the top of your head and go all the way to the base of your spine. The aim is for all these points to be open, balanced and in harmony. You want energy to be able to flow freely within your body so that there is harmony between the body, mind, and spirit. If any of these points are unbalanced, then it can affect you physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In Sanskrit, Chakra means ‘Wheel’ and that’s essentially it; wheels need to be balanced in weight to work properly!

The Root Chakra

Just like a tree, the roots ground and support you. It helps your ability to overcome challenges, gain independence and feel safe and secure. When this area is blocked, you may suffer from anxiety, fears and nightmares. If your root chakra is underactive, you may feel anxious and not in control. For an overactive root chakra, you may feel overly attached to something that is unhealthy for your wellbeing e.g. a job.
Location – Base of your spine
Colour – Red
Crystals – Red Jasper, Hematite

The Sacral Chakra

This chakra houses our emotions, passions, and pleasures. When this chakra is aligned, you feel great: you’re friendly, full of joy and creativity. When your sacral chakra is blocked, you may feel uninspired and emotional instability. When it is underactive, you may lack ‘joie de vivre’ and a low libido. When it is overactive, you may experience emotional fluctuations from high highs to low lows.
Location – Above the pubic bone and below the navel
Colour – Orange
Crystals – Carnelian, Tigers Eye, Sunstone

The Solar Plexus

This chakra is believed to be your source of individual power and is responsible for your self-esteem. It boosts your self-worth, willpower and commitment. When it is blocked, you may suffer from low self-esteem, which in turn can lead to anger and procrastination. An underactive solar plexus may mean you struggle to show your authentic self and make decisions. When overactive, you may be power hungry and show maniac behaviour.
Location – From the navel to the ribcage
Colour – Yellow
Crystals – Citrine, Pyrite, Amber

The Heart Chakra

This chakra is all to do with love and influences our ability to give and receive love. It’s where the physical and spiritual meet, allowing forgiveness and compassion to flow freely both to and from you. A blocked heart chakra will bring up feelings of jealously and betrayal. When underactive, you may be emotionally closed off and struggle to get over past hurts. An overactive heart chakra may mean you are too dependent and needy, with a lack of boundaries.
Location – The centre of the chest
Colour – Green
Crystals – Rose Quartz, Malachite, Jade

The Throat Chakra

Your fifth chakra is all about communication and being able to speak your inner truth. You should be able to express yourself clearly, as well as being able to fully listen. A blocked throat chakra may result in feeling unfocused and afraid of being judged. It also can manifest itself as a sore throat and/or thyroid issues. With an underactive throat chakra you may yourself ‘swallowing your words and feelings’, unable to express yourself. An overactive chakra will portray as being overly critical and judgemental of others, and well as being domineering in conversations.
Location – Throat
Colour – Blue
Crystals – Lapis Lazuli, Green Aventurine, Blue Lace Agate

The Third Eye

This chakra is believed to be the bridge between you and the outside world. It allows you to see the clear picture, as well as enhancing your intuition and your ability to tap into it. If your third eye is blocked, you’ll have trouble trusting your inner voice and learning new skills. If your lower chakras are unbalanced, chances are your third eye is too – resulting in you acting more introverted and judgemental. With an underactive third eye, you may overthink and intellectualise things without trusting your intuition. An overactive third eye can lead to an overactive imagination and a mind that wanders too much.
Location – Between the eyebrows
Colour – Indigo
Crystals – Amethyst, Labradorite, Fluorite

The Crown Chakra

This chakra represents our spiritual connection to our higher selves and the Universe. With this, we can access pure consciousness. Unlike the other chakras, the crown is often only opened fully through meditative exercises. Because of this, you may not notice if this chakra is blocked as you may just feel like your regular self – just not in a state of enlightenment. An underactive crown chakra may have you feeling disconnected, with no real direction or purpose in life. An overactive crown may have you desiring material things, yet never being satisfied.
Location – The crown of the head
Colour – Violet
Crystals – Selenite, Clear Quartz, Lepidolite

Although each chakra has its own properties, they all work together as a system. If one is out of balance, then the rest are affected. The goal is for everything to be balanced and working in harmony. It is completely normal to have one or more blocked chakras, and there are plenty of ways to establish harmony within you.

By understanding what each chakra represents, you can figure out if any of yours are unbalanced. Then you can focus on that chakra with your crystals, healing and meditative work. There are also products out there that work on all the chakras simultaneously, which is ideal if you are unsure on what is out of balance. Check out some of our favourite chakra items below!

The Relationship Corner

According to Feng Shui, each area of your home represents an area of your life. If the energy in this area of your home is balanced, then that area of your life will be balanced. However, if the area is cluttered or in disarray, then this can have detrimental affect on your life. You can manipulate this energy to enhance aspects of your life.

The relationship corner is found in the right hand corner of your bedroom, with your back against the bedroom door. First of all, you need to think about what you have in this corner and whether it represents love. For example, don’t keep your bin in this corner! Also throw away anything that is no longer serving you, as clutter holds onto negative energy.

Once you have done this, you can start incorporating objects that will enhance your love life and symbolise the relationships you desire.

You could put two chunks of Rose Quartz to represent yourself and your partner, or one if you are single. Rose Quartz is the crystal for love, and can help stimulate loving energies in your life. You could even place it in a heart dish for extra energy!

You could put one of our relationship figurines in this corner as well. This can represent your current relationship or the relationship you desire.

Whatever you do, make sure you place it with intention!
