Take time for Self
As a healer one of my biggest lessons was to learn to heal and take care of myself. I would always share what I had with others, family, friends and others who just needed help. Sometimes I would give so much that I would literally have nothing left for myself... no food, or money to buy things I wanted. For years I thought I was doing the noble and righteous thing, and I was. But I was also lacking one important point....
Self preservation is key.
I had to really internalize this message. I had been brought up to think that I was second best or not good enough, like many of us are. My healing was to begin the work of changing my mindset. I had to learn to embrace my unique qualities, my slender frame and exotic look. I learned to truly love and accept myself and give to myself the things I wanted without feeling bad or that someone else will miss out. I began to find it okay to say no to others when I felt like my plate was full. I began to give back to myself the love and the attention that I needed to move forward. I found that when you truly love yourself you don't do things that are not good for you. When you truly love yourself you become very clear about who you are, what you will accept, and what is really good for you. With that you find the strength to make the right choices for yourself.
This was a few years ago, but I see so many who are still in that cycle of wearing themselves thin.
So here are some tips for taking care of yourself in a natural way:
I pray this will bless your journey.

Using Ms Neti
The first time I heard about a neti pot was in Queen Afua's book Heal Thyself. It was year later that I stumbled across one in an asian store in Chicago. I took it home and it sat a few years before I got the courage to actually try it. I used to have bronchitis or strep throat every year, around this time of year when I was younger. As an adult I changed my eating habits and remained healthy for years.
Now I use my neti pot seasonally, during the change of season that is. I have a complete cleansing ritual I do for myself to clear as much toxins and mucus from my body every spring, summer and fall.
Neti pot is good for anyone who suffers with allergy, congestion, breathing difficulties. It will cleanse the nasal cavities and reduce sinus inflammation.
After using a neti pot you will breathe easier, your sense of smell will increase. Your head may feel lighter or more clear as well.
It is important to follow the directions and use distilled water to avoid injury.
Clean you neti pot before and after each use. Use castille or black soap with baking soda to kill any germs.
Boil 2-3 cups of filtered or distilled water for at least 5 minutes
Let the water cool and add neti pot pre packaged solution or 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt to 8 ounces of water.
Mix solution and fill pot a little more than half full. Stand over bathroom sink.
Tilt yourself comfortably over the sink, with one ear towards the ceiling, and one ear towards the ground. Your head should be horizontal.
Insert the Neti-Pot spout into your upper nostril. Ensure that the spout is fully inserted so it cannot spill out of your upper nostril, and slowly tilt the pot to a pouring position. Breathe through your mouth, and relax. It will take a few seconds for the water to start dripping out of your other nostril.
Once half of the solution is used stop and blow your nose. Repeat the process on the other nostril.
When you are done, blow your nose. do not force it be gentle with yourself.
Rinse out your Neti-Pot and let it air dry.
Remember, you can use your Neti-Pot as frequently or infrequently as you need.
Working with Crystals
There is a world of healing crystals available to use in healing. They are very powerful healing tools. They have been used since ancient times, all over the world. They magnify the energy of the one wearing them as well as the environment they are in. The electromagnetic vi-brations of each crystal are based on the minerals they are made of. They are very helpful in clearing the aura, balancing the chakras, balancing emotions, enhancing spiritual connection, protection against negative energy, astral travel, meditation and many more things. They are formed over hundreds or thousands of years so they also carry memory of past times. When working with crystals it is best to touch them or allow them to touch your skin. When you perspire while holding a crystal you are able to absorb the energy from the crystal even more. They are said to have healing qualities for the mind, body and spir-it. Even if you wear a crystal and it doesn’t touch your skin, you can still feel the benefits of its energy. They are also said to be even more powerful for melaninated ones, our melanin allows us to absorb and use the energy of crystals on a higher level than others.
Quartz is one that everyone should have at least one of. Clear quartz is known to radiate positive energy, it helps keep you clear, and it balances and activates the chakras. It is healing, activating, can raise your vibration and enhance your spiritual powers. It can be worn every day or in the home or office. It can transmute negative energy, so it should be cleaned often. There are many varieties of clear quartz, elestial quartz helps one connect with their highest self. Lemurian and Tibetan quartz are other varieties worth checking into, they are both said to be highly spiritual, highly charged and very powerful.
