We all have fields of energy that surround us and weave through our bodies, animating all of life. Its no secret that we are electrical beings, and just like a TV glows when it is plugged in and flipped on, you glow when you are similarly ignited with life force.
How to plug in to that electrical source of life? We reach for night creams and energy drinks and glowing makeup and even sparkling accessories, all to have a bit more radiance. But real radiance comes from a very primal, natural place that can’t be served up at a cosmetic counter or attained at the dermatologist’s office.
If you are run-down, overworked, frequently drained by your environment or the negativity that lurks around us in everyday life, you know the toll it takes on how you look. Seriously. A bad day makes you look dim. Your eyes might seem darker if you look in a mirror. Your skin may seem dull. You might feel weak for no reason.
I recently came across pictures of me from a time when my job was a 24-7 stress festival. My irises look almost black in the photo — and my eyes are yellowish-orangish-hazel depending on the day. I look about 10 years older than I do now, energetically older, if that makes sense? I can’t recognize me at all in the murky mess that was my life, as glamorous as it was on the surface.
Two months after leaving that job, I saw pictures at a birthday party. I was a whole new person, energetically speaking. I could feel me in the photos. Something happened to my skin that made it look childlike. I could see energy bouncing off of me in each image.
Energy is real. It is the entire universe we live in. We see it even if we can’t name it – we can see how awesome people look after a vacation at the beach, after a spa, or even a few amazing nights of sleep.
Glowing beings are thought to have big, bright, magnetic auras. Eating, getting energetically grounded and all kinds of great environmental shifts can help you to get your aura more dynamically rainbow-colored and shining. THIS really fun post explains more about the role that food and environment play in our radiantly glowing lives.
Today’s simplest bit of energy shifting is a bath that can help you to wipe off energetic gunk, negativity and, most importantly, help stregthen your electrically-charged glowing aura to amazing.
1 cup of baking soda in a bath.
If you are super-sensitive to energy, my friends sware by 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of Epsom salt in a bath.
I can’t tell you how wildly amazing it is making me feel. I learned it in the book, Energy Medicine by Donna Eden. It’s the one take-away tip that you can easily do… and the effects are astonishingly incredible!
I am doing these for a week – plain baking soda- to restore myself after a whole lot of work and a big time ahead. If you try it for a day, or a few, let me know how it goes! xoxo Dana
