Author Xochi Balfour reveals seven simple, uplifting ingredients you need for a happier and more harmonised lifestyle
Make your home your sanctuary
“Purifying your home, as well as your body, is an empowering step towards living more mindfully,” says Xochi. Here is how to balance the energies in your abode:
Smudge with sage:
Revered for its cleansing properties, a bundle of dried sage leaves (also known as a smudge stick) can clear your space of any limiting beliefs or negative energy that could be making your week more difficult.
Belonging to the same family as frankincense and myrrh, burning palo santo each morning can help you to start your day afresh.
“My quartz bowl is one of my most prized mediation tools – whenever I use it something shifts for me,” says Xochi. Known for their ability to realign chakras, singing bowls are also a handy tool for ridding the body of stagnant energy.
