What are Blissfully Inspiring Kits?

The healing journey

I'm in the process of putting together a series of small box sets for beginners who want to create a habit of journaling, crystal healing, smudging, but are not sure how or where to start! 
The aim is to start small, provide you with tools that you can carry around with you and start you off on the wonderful magical journey of healing; mind, body, and soul. 
Each box set will include:
  • A set of 7-9  affirmation cards that I created, which include affirmations for empowerment, self-love, success, healing, abundance & prosperity, etc. 
  • A smudging stick
  • 2-3 crystals appropriate to the kit chosen.  
  • A small notepad 

They will be available first in Cyprus and then internationally. 
I am currently in the process of rebranding,  and will eventually set up an online shop.

So keep an eye out on our Social Media pages, as we post regular updates!

Here you'll find information on how to take care of your crystals, the benefits of journaling, affirmations, and smudging. 
In the near future, I hope to provide a list of websites that really helped and guided me on this amazing healing journey.  


The Healing Journey


"The hardest journey is the one you take from your head to your heart.
The healing journey is found in the path leading back from your heart to your head. 
Your wellness is found in the continuous flow of honoring both your thoughts and feelings."
  1. This area is fully editable and gives you the opportunity to go into more detail about your business.
Whether you received your crystals or bought them yourself, your crystals have passed through many hands and they were subject to many energies, good and bad.  
Your crystals should be purified and attuned to your unique vibrations.  If you wear a crystal, it's best to cleanse it daily, especially if you're using it for healing.  
Let's take a look at some ways to clear your stones.
  
Salt Water:
Suitable crystals can be left to soak in seawater or water mixed with sea salt. 
If sea water is not available, you can fill a glass bowl, not metal, about half full and place your crystals within the water.  Let them fully submerge anywhere between 1 to 24 hours. 
There are crystals that may need a deeper and more thorough cleanse, and many people leave their crystals submerged for a week. 
Thoroughly rinse your crystals in cool running water after spending time in sea or salt water, in order to remove any remaining salt.  If you used water mixed with sea salt, please dispose of it as it has absorbed negative and unwanted energies and should therefore not be reused.
Salt and seawater cleansing is considered one of the best and most thorough ways to cleanse crystals.  Be aware that this method must be avoided for certain crystals as it can change their appearance and healing properties.   
For example, stones that contain metal, are porous or have water content, such as Opal, should not be soaked in salt water.  Other stones and minerals that should be kept away from salt include Pyrite, Lapis Lazuli, Opal, Hematite, etc.
  
  
Running Water:
If you live in an area where you have access to clean running water, such as a river or stream that is not polluted, you can put your crystals in a mesh bag and let the water run over them.   This is a great option to not only cleanse your crystals but to energize them.  For more options on how to energize your crystals take a look at the following section. 

Other crystals:
You can lay your crystals on Selenite or a Quartz Crystal cluster for at least 6 hours.  This will help clear them of negative energies and re-energize them. Remember to cleanse your cleansing crystals!

Sage Smoke:
Burning sage or smudging your crystals is another way to cleanse them of any energy.   Place your crystals in a container or cloth.  Direct the smoke of a burning sage stick onto your crystals.  Do so for about 3-4 minutes.  

Energizing  your Crystals

Once your crystals have been cleansed you will need to energize them in order for them to continue to release their own natural vibrations and energies. 
I mentioned above that by leaving your crystals in non-polluted running water is one way to energize your crystals,  here is a brief description using the Sun & Moon to energize your crystals. 

  
SUNLIGHT AND MOONLIGHT

The natural energies transmitted by the Sun and Moon can energize your crystals.  
There are many people who like to leave their newly cleansed stones under Moonlight and Sunlight for a day or two in order to absorb the different energies.
I opt to leave my crystals out during the Full Moon.  

Please remember that when leaving your crystals in Sunlight, some colored stones may fade over a period of time especially if left in strong sunlight too often. 
If you use the sun, it's best to place your crystals out during sunrise or sunset as the sun's rays aren't as strong and leave them out for no more than an hour or so.  


  
  

Programming your crystals
  
Before you start, it's wise to clear the room and yourself of any extra or unwanted energies by smudging your space and yourself.  
In order to program a crystal for a specific use or with specific energy, you can sit quietly away from any unwanted distractions and from any electrical devices. 

Clear your mind and focus on the stone as you hold the crystal in front of you.   Concentrate on the energy that you wish to program your crystal with and transmit the energy and thoughts from your mind to the stone.    It's important to be clear when programming your crystals and not to overload the crystal with different thoughts and energies.  


 
 
  
The Power of Journaling 
In a society where texting and typing have taken over the traditional pen to paper method used for centuries, the mere thought of writing makes our hands cramp! 

It's an undeniable truth that journaling is a powerful healing tool.   As you write down your thoughts, feelings, or even a quote that resonates with you; written words can be therapeutic.  A powerful healing tool on your road to self-discovery and personal well-being. 
Journals hold the key to unlocking your mind, heart, and soul. 

 Most think that writing on blank pages can be boring, but the best thing about journaling is that you can decorate your journal by coloring or even doodling in it. 
You can get as creative as you wish, there are no limits when it comes to how you express yourself.
“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”

Saging your home
and self

The benefits
of
saging 


 Burning sage or smudging is a tradition that goes back thousands of years.  People from around the world have been burning plants to produce smoke which have beneficial effects.  
Smoke is also deeply symbolic as it ascends to the heavens, bringing any intentions and prayers up with it.  
When performing a smudging ritual you are instantly tapping into an ancient and powerful line of spiritual tradition. 


Smudging is a quick and effective method used for getting rid of stagnant, old energy that may have settled in your space, not only by you but from other people who have entered your home. 

Since we cannot ask visitors to leave their negative energy behind, their energy enters your home.  Now we can't go blaming our guests for negative vibes in our personal space, any arguments you may have had or unpleasant thoughts can also linger in your space!

This is why regular saging is a great way to keep good, positive and uplifting vibes around your home as well as yourself.   

The most well-known herb for energy cleansing is sage.  It helps relieve stress or any worries.  It opens your mind and absolves any negative thoughts and emotions.  It harmonizes the mind, body, and soul.   This is why after you perform a cleansing ritual, you and your space feel much lighter.

Hold your sage stick above an abalone shell or a fireproof container and light it.   

Let the sage stick catch fire, and let it burn for about 30 seconds. Then blow it out.

First, sage yourself using a feather or your hand to direct the smoke towards your body. Start at the top of your head and work your way down towards your feet.

After saging yourself, it's time to sage your space.


Open your front door and all the windows to allow unwanted energy to be released.

Start at your front door, sage around the outside of the door and frame. 
Walk back insideand begin smudging the space by moving clockwise.
Waft the smoke into the corners of every room and up to the ceiling.
While smudging your space, make sure that you are focused and have strong intentions of removing negative energy.  

Say out loud or silently 

"I ask to please remove and release any residing negative energy from this space".

When finished, make sure to extinguish your sage stick by snuffing it out in your shell or your fireproof container.


  
Other Blessing Herbs
​& Resins
If you run out of white sage to bless your space, don't panic! There are many other herbs that you can use to bless your space.
Frankincense:

This tree resin, together with Myrrh, was considered to be more valuable than gold.  It is believed to cleanse and protect the soul and became important to the three major religions and is still used in many rituals. 
Frankincense eases depression and promotes clairvoyance.  It is best to burn Frankincense on charcoal tablets. 

Bay Leaves:

The burning of bay leaves is said to bring about psychic awareness and visions.  It is believed that by burning bay leaves can also cleanse and ward off evil.    

Myrrh:

This resin helps maintain a state of enlightenment. It also connects the spirit of youth and clears the path that stands in the way of one's truth.  Like Frankincense, Myrrh is best burned on charcoal tablets.

Cedar:

 Cedar trees are very old, wise and are considered powerful spirits. Cedar is used for protection. It is often used to cleanse a home when first moving in, calling on unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person or object from unwanted influences.

Lavender:

A native of Europe, it is often used to invite spirits.  The name may be derived from the Latin lavare (to wash). It is thought by some Christians that the scent of Lavender is a shield against evil.   It is best to burn Lavender on charcoal tablets. 

Juniper:

It is used in rituals of blessings and purification.  Believed to guard against 'bad magic' or the 'evil eye'.  It symbolizes luck and protection.

Sweetgrass:

Also goes by the name vanilla grass, holy grass, and  Seneca grass.   This herb's sweet vanilla-like scent is said to be the breath of the Earth mother.  It brings with it the blessing of Mother Earth's love.  Sweetgrass is burned to remind us that the Earth provides us with everything we need.  It can be burned on charcoal tablets.  It is best to allow the smoke that follows to wash over the subject that you are blessing .  
Whatever method you choose to bless your home, sacred space, objects or self, please take the appropriate safety measures.  
Remember to never leave an open flame unattended.
Always use heat or fireproof containers. 
Keep away from children. 
Keep away from animals


The Power of Affirmations

Whether you're aware of it or not, you're using affirmations every day.  

Every word spoken and every thought you have is an affirmation.  For many, it's a habit to speak negatively to ourselves which in turn doesn't create good experiences.  

Most of us are unaware that every time we get angry or feel like a victim, for example, you keep affirming that you want more anger in your life, and you want to continue to feel like a victim.  

If you continue to feel that life isn't giving you what you want, then it's certain that you won't be attracting the life you deserve until you change how you think and talk!

Positive affirmations are the beginning of a path to change.  Affirmations are meant to encourage a life filled with gratitude and positivity.  They are a never-ending life practice!

When talking about affirmations and doing them, it means that YOU are now consciously choosing words that will help get rid of something from your life or create something new in your life!  



Saying positive affirmations is only the beginning part of the process. What you do the rest of the day is equally important. 
The secret to affirmations working quickly lies in the preparation of the atmosphere for them to grow in.   Like the planting of seeds, affirmations grow in a fertile and pleasant environment.  If the environment is poor, the affirmations won't work.  Choosing thoughts that make you feel good, is a rich environment for the affirmations to take root and work faster. 
As previously mentioned, affirmations are a never-ending life practice.
