If you are finding your mind is running a thousand miles a second and you are having trouble silencing the mental chatter some great options for you to try would be breathwork, meditation, visualisations, crystals, essential oils even your food/diet. If you are experiencing grief, a similar approach can be taken with these methods to heal within.
Breathwork / Meditation / Visualisations
These are all great ways to calm the business and mental chatter. It forces you to focus on you and your practice. Starting small, like 5 minutes a day, can open a path to success at expanding your timeframe and spending some much needed time to heal deep within.
Crystals are used to draw out or redirect energy, as well as to develop the strengths aligned with each crystal. They can be used on their own or to compliment other practices and help rebalance and heal.
Essential oils have been used for centuries for their therapeutic properties, and they can be a powerful tool to help balance and open the chakras. Essential oils are so much more than just a nice smell - you can use these to go deeper into your practices and target specific Chakras with aligning essential oils to balance your energetics and physical bodies.
