    0 comments / Posted on by Batista Thomas

    Placing crystals on your body, connects you to grounding and powerful energy that comes from the earth. Crystals can be powerful sources of healing for anxiety sufferers. Each crystal holds powerful properties that help you release stress and overcome anxiety. Below are Blissfully Serene’s top 5 picks of crystals for stress relief. Place them in your pocket, wear them as jewelry, put them beside your bed or on a counter to help you achieve blissful serenity.

    1. Amethyst- This crystal is also called the natural tranquilizer because it soothes irritability, eases stress and can help regulate mood swings. It is said to guard against bad energy and attract good energy. Sleep with this crystal under your pillow or on your bedside table to relieve stress and even ward off nightmares.
    2. Clear Quartz- Also referred to as Rock Quartz, is believed to shield you from common, everyday stressors. It increases mental clarity and can help calm emotions and relax the body. It is best worn outside the body as a piece of jewelry to protect the body against outside, negative energy.
    3. Rose Quartz- This crystal is great for easing stress due to great emotional suffering. It is the strongest heart chakra crystal and replaces negative energies with love energies. This stone is said to be helpful when you need to release emotions like resentment and anger. To harness its powerful energy, sleep with this stone under your pillow if you suffer from anxiety-related insomnia. This promotes healthy sleep. You can also place the stone directly on your heart while laying on your back and breathing softly to produce calming feelings. Be sure to always keep this crystal in your energy field.
    4. Obsidian- If you are interested in increasing your intuition, calming your emotions or relieving stress, this is the perfect crystal for you. It is also great to use when meditating as it offers support if you feel uncentered. Place this stone in a clean and flat place, preferably high up in your home, to help clear and protect your home from negative energies. Wear it in jewelry and always keep this stone with you, to continuously renew your balance and harmony.
    5. Black Tourmaline- Black Tourmaline Natural Stone is a multifaceted crystal with an abundance of powerful qualities. It can relieve anxiety, worry and diminish overwhelming feelings. Black Tourmaline operates at a high frequency to help protect you from harmful vibrations by creating a protective shield around your aura, protecting you against negative energies. This makes it a great crystal for those who often deal with other people’s problems. It boosts your positive energy and helps you to avoid toxic and stressful situations. It also has grounding properties, making it an excellent choice for meditation and healing. To use the properties of Black Tourmaline, hold the stone in your dominant hand to absorb stress and cleanse your energy. Place the stone on aching or painful body parts to neutralize pain. This helps boost the healing process. Put the stones within your energy field, on your desk or a table for example, to balance stress produced from external factors.

            *Black Tourmaline together with Amethyst stones form the best protection for stress relief.*

  • The Lovetuner The Lovetuner

    0 comments / Posted on by Batista Thomas

    Blissfully Serene always looks for healthy and natural products to help you relax. The Lovetuner is the newest item we’ve added to the store and it does just that. It is a mindfulness tool that can improve the health and well being of your body, mind and spirit through tuning. This single tone flute aligns us with the 528 HZ frequency, which is also referred to as the love frequency. According to the makers of the flute, “In Music, tuning refers to adjusting the pitch of the tone. In human beings, it means adjusting your emotional and physical state to align yourself with your environment.” This means tuning in and harmonizing with the world around you.

    How do you Tune-In? One may ask. Here are a few tips, from the makers of Lovetuner, for practice and use:

    Step 1: Pull the Lovetuner out of the cap and place the side with the engraved C between your lips.

    Step 2: Blow into the “Lovetuner” gently (like on a whistle or flute) to create a smooth long note with a constant volume. (We recommend a soothing and quiet tone, rather than blowing hard to make a loud noise.)

    Step 3: You can make the note last as long as you like. Athletes have reported tunings of well over a minute per outbreath.

    Step 4: After exhaling, inhale through your nose allowing air to flow into the center of your body. Just leave the Lovetuner between your lips as you inhale, and then exhale again with the next note.

    Step 5:  Repeat as long as it feels good – we recommend at least 6 in and out breaths.

    Step 6: You can tune almost anywhere: at home, during office breaks, in the car, with friends, on your Yoga-Mat, in nature, etc.

    Step 7: To protect your Lovetuner, place it back in the cap with the C facing up.

    After tuning why not enjoy the stillness for a moment? Then continue in your new “fully-tuned” state with whatever you were doing before.
