How To Clear Limited Beliefs, Heal Trauma & Manifest Abundance

How To Clear Limited Beliefs, Heal Trauma & Manifest Abundance

Heal The Issues Causing Chronic Illness, Anxiety & Depression & Keeping You From Manifesting Abundance

Illness , both physical & mental, (otherwise known as dis-ease) is typically caused by old trauma and trapped emotion.

When you have emotional issues that just get buried and never actually dealt with to clear away the negative energy associated with it, it can and typically will manifest as illness in the body. It will also keep you from manifesting abundance.

A good percentage of the human  population has developed limited belief systems that are not serving them and holding them back from living their best life.

Once you learn how to clear away negative energy & blocked chakras, you will be able to manifest with ease.

What Your Body Is Trying To Tell You

Every pain in your body is trying to send you a message and correlates with specific negative belief systems. Which side of the body it occurs relates to either masculine or feminine energy.

Blocked Chakras Cause Imbalance In The Body

Your body is made up of several energy centers (chakras) and blocks can appear and contribute to these issues. 

It is important to take time to make sure that you start of the day grounded, balanced and in a high vibrational state.


If any of your lower chakras are blocked, odds are so are your higher chakras.


How Do You Clear Blocked Chakras?

There are several different ways you can go about clearing blocked chakras. You can combine any of these methods together and will often get quicker results when you do. 

I talk about the methods I use in my book and how they helped me end over a decade of suffering from chronic illness and debilitating anxiety.

I personally love to work with all of these methods, but really find that crystals are amazing for helping with energy clearing.


Reiki is a great way to quickly eliminate negative energy and help balance and restore chakra health.

I would love to hear what your practices are to get rid of negative energy.

How To Grow Your Own Herbal Apothecary Garden Indoors

How To Grow Your Own Herbal Apothecary Garden Indoors

Herbs contain so many nutrients, vitamins and minerals and also provide so many superior health benefits.

Like so many people these days, having access to healthy chemical free produce and natural options to care for and maintain optimal health & wellness , is a top priority for this family.

I need access to fresh produce so that I can feed my body things that are not going to cause massive inflammation and digestive issue like so many store bought foods do.

This year we decided to try our hand at Urban gardening…

We live on a small property in town, so having acres of gardens or a greenhouse is not in the realm of possibilities,  so we built a raised garden bed along with several smaller gardens and added in container gardening along with an indoor grow tent. I now will be able to grow my own organic herbs and produce all year long!

The fact that I get to control what is going and not going in to my food is key to building a strong immune system and healthy body.

There are many things that you can grow for your own medicinal herbal apothecary and having a way to grow all year long ensures that you have a fully stocked herbal pantry at all times!

20 Herbs To Stock In Your Herbal Apothecary

Some great things to grow and dry for your herbal medicinal cabinet are:

  • Chamomile
  • Lavender
  • Lemon Balm
  • Sage
  • Basil
  • Feverfew
  • Calendula
  • Cat Nip
  • Clover
  • Roses
  • Cannabis
  • Echinacea
  • Borage
  • Yarrow
  • Mint
  • Cornflower
  • Bee Balm
  • Holy Basil
  • Pineapple Sage
  • Rosemary
shelf, store, shop

You can use a tent similar to the one below that we are using to grow organic peppers for hot sauce,  to grow a steady supply of organic herbs.

Indoor tents are also great to start your plants indoors before planting outside. (Just as an FYI , these tents are super easy to set up! I love how you can customize your tent for the space that you are going to be putting it in.)

These tents are a great alternative for greenhouses.

Once you harvest your herbs , you will want to dry them if you are stocking your pantry, it is the easiest method to preserve them.

You can dry bundles out in the sun, in the oven on low heat or in a good quality dehydrator.

Once the herbs are dry but not crumbly, store in mason jars or glass apothecary jars. You will then have easy access to your herbs to make herbal tinctures, salves, ointments, infused oils and herbal teas.

Keep an eye for further gardening posts and to see what we were able to grow in our new indoor garden.

One of the next projects will be to see if we can grow tropical fruit trees  in the grow tent and what kind of yield we will be able to produce. For the first round we are growing in organic soil and future grows we will be testing out a hydroponic grow.

I would love to hear what you are growing in your garden and what you do with your harvest.

1-Coloring For Adults

Remember that carefree feeling you had coloring as a child? Many adults use coloring as a way to ease anxiety & stress and as a way to express themselves artistically. 

You can choose from mystical & witchy , fairytales, nature, mandalas, florals and many other adult coloring book categories.

2-Wood Burning ( Pyrography)

Pyrography is at the top of the list for my favorite adult crafting ideas. This is a great crafting project for beginner wood burners. I love this even more than my vinyl cutting machine to be honest because #1 You do not have to be able to draw! Simply print out any pattern and trace on to your wood project with the help of some transfer paper or a projector for bigger projects.

#2 All you really need is your wood burning tool of choice and a piece of wood. You can buy a beginner kit or go all in with a professional kit which offers more precise shading and burning. 

To keep things natural, seal with any nut oil or beeswax. 

You can also pick up raw wood craft pieces at any dollar store or craft store. You can also give new life to thrifted items. I have seen so many different wood burning ideas that would make great DIY gifts!

Wood Burning Ideas For Beginners: 

  • Wood Spoons
  • Wood Boxes
  • Raw Wood Slices
  • Wood Canvas
  • Wood Planter Boxes
  • Wood Kleenex Boxes
  • Wood Ornaments
  • Wood Jewelry
  • Wood Blocks

I would love to see your wood burning projects! Please feel free to link them in the comments below!

3-Rock Hounding & Lapidary

I have always had a love for crystals and when I found out that I could mine for my own and fairly locally, it became a passion. It is so grounding to spend time out in nature and mine for your own crystals and minerals. Part of the fun is learning all about the treasures you have found, such as what healing benefits that are touted for. I love to create products with both tumbled and polished stones. One of my sons bought me a rock tumbler for Christmas, I always love to see the results after tumbling raw stones. 

Having the right tools is important when you are going rock hounding, nothing is worse that finding something great and not being able to get it out of the ground!


This is a simple & fun crafting idea! I am always on the lookout for things that I can use to decoupage. Dollar stores & party stores are great places to score decorative napkins, tissie paper, wrapping paper and posters. I will have to take a look through my photos and come back and post some of my own personal projects… A few years back I did dressers for my niece and nephews. One was done in a zebra print napkin and the other with old comic books. ( Upcycling is one of my favorite things to do! )

5-Clay Art

I am simply amazed by the talent of people who work with clay, it is definitely on my list of to do’s! Ace of Clay is likely one of my favorite clay artists! The detail that he puts in to his work is unbelievable!

Clay is another very versatile crafting medium. Check out the video below to see an example of an awesome clay project.

Wood Carving & Whittling

Wood Carving & whittling wood are easy to get started with just a few simple tools. However, make sure to use the correct tools and techniques to avoid injury as you will be working with very sharp tools. 

I love to take things from nature and turn it into beautiful art! When using raw wood, opt for trees & branches  that have already fallen to help preserve our precious trees!

If you want to see some amazing wood projects, check out Bobby Duke Art

6-Resin Art

I love to work with resin. It is yet another medium that is very versatile. One of my favorite things to do is create high vibe crystal art with plant based resin. When working with resin, especially ones that are not plant based, always use proper protective equipment like gloves and a respirator mask. 

You can also make a number of other things with resin:

  • jewelry
  • paper weights
  • orgone pyramids
  • coasters
  • serving trays
  • Geode Art


Sewing is not only a great crafting idea, it is also very practical. Learn to make your own clothes , pillows and other fabric needs. Many things can also be made with the new sew technique which involves using a steam iron and some fusing webbing

Many people are also opting learn how to sew surgical style face masks to help flatten the curve of the covid-19 pandemic. 

8-Crochet & Knitting

If you think that crochet and knitting is just for Grannies, think again!  There are so many amazing crochet patterns for gift giving.

  • Beautiful Crochet Blankets & Throws
  • Comfy & Stylish Sweaters
  • Amazing Mandala Patterns
  • Hats
  • Slippers
  • Scarves
  • Childrens Toys & Dolls


9-Soap Making

Soap making is yet another creative crafting project that is also very practical. Making soap and other diy bath & body products allow you to control what is going in to the products you put on your skin and make great gifts. 

** If Gift giving, always label with full ingredients list! 

10-Candle Making

So what you may or may not know is that I have been a candle maker for well over a decade. Before I got sick and started blogging, I owned a brick and mortar store where I sold handcrafted candles and bath and body products and was the local consignment shop for creators. 

Candle making is the one crafting project where I REALLY encourage following all safety testing measures before giving as gifts. Much like bath & body products , where you label all ingredients to avoid potential allergic reactions, candle making has it’s own set of safety testing. As with any new project, I expect that people will practice due diligence and do their own research.

With candlemaking I also recommend that people use natural ingredients and help cut down on chemical pollution, in the air and in your lungs!

Soy wax is my wax of choice as it does not burn as hot as other waxes , does not contain all of the carcinogens of other waxes and cleans up with soap and water!

11-Jewelry Making

I love to take the crystals and minerals I find and turn it into beautiful crystal healing jewelry and infuse it with Reiki energy. I personally work with a lot of copper wire wrapping and natural stones, which then can be polished as is or electroformed. You can make some really beautiful pattern with wire wrapping and often will not need to use a soldering gun.  


Gardening is a major stress relieving activity. Nothing is better than grounding in nature and creating beautiful things with plants. You can get really artistic with your arrangements and create a beautiful chair planter , birdcage planter, colander planter or upcycle numerous other things as planters.  Fairy Gardens are extremely popular and I make one every year. 

Succulents are my favorite plants to work with and have often admired the beautiful succulent wreaths I see. Maybe this year I will get around to making a wreath. However, unless you have grown several of your own succulents, the wreaths can be a little costly to make.

Another great option would be to make wreaths out of grapevine and herbs or flowers, for example, hydrangeas. 

13-Art Therapy Journaling

Art Therapy Jouraling combines regular journaling with creative expression. This can be in the form of a combination journal/coloring book , doodling your own creations , printing images out and gluing to the pages , stamps or stickers.
