Because of a number of personal issues, I have been spending a lot of time in self-care. A string of ill-fortune, culminating in one big fat crisis, caused me a lot of anxiety, unhappiness, worry and a bunch of other negative emotions that I won’t even list!
The funny thing is on the day I got the Big Bad News, I attended a full-moon meditation that helped me realise I have a lot of skills to help me navigate through crisis without lowering my vibrations and allowing the circumstances to dictate how I would view daily experiences.

My routine would usually be:
- Lighting some form of aromatherapy (essential oils or incense)
- Centring prayer (more later)
- Reiki of self
- Cutting chords
- Reiki of crisis
After a week or so, I found that I didn’t need so much time in ritual, and modified the time to have more centring prayer or meditation and less of cutting chords etc. Depending on the day and the news, I would spend time with myself in this way. Other tools I have in the toolbox are:
- Work with crystals
- EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
I added these as and when. EFT is especially good for sudden panic attacks, especially in the car. I also added reclining yoga stretches to reiki self-care as and when I felt emotional grippings taking root in the body. In addition to this, I also made sure I didn’t waste opportunities for group reiki or meditation with friends or people I trusted. Of course, I ensured I still exercised, and worked out, ate well and rested as well as I could. Funnily enough, I had good rest every night!
The crisis was averted and the mess is being cleared up, slowly but surely. But one of the major takeaways I had from this is how important self-care is.
I hope to begin more meditation and self-care classes soon to help people because it really is less about the crisis and more about how we respond to it. Stay tuned!
