My Mom and I watched an Oprah livestream yesterday that was all about how the love that you have for yourself is the absolute foundation for every other relationship, interaction and encounter in your life. This is so important! I'll share some a-ha's with you next week, but I wanted to remind you of that today! It's so easy to forget, and to take ourselves for granted.
My self love message (continuing on our February theme) for today though, sounds simple but tends to be way more difficult than it sounds and is entirely inspired by my own personal past week….take a step back when you need it.
Keep it pure and simple - when your body, mind or heart tell you that you need to quiet down and step back a little bit, please listen. It is a massive sign and is so important to listen to!
This week your reminder (when you need) is to go to bed early, say no, step back, slim down your schedule, simplify, get quiet.
It has the most positive impact when you need it!

(virtual) FEBRUARY AROMA YIN YOGA | 60 min
WHEN : Monday, February 15, 2021 8:15pm MST
LOCATION : virtual
INVESTMENT : pay what you can
Join Jenny White in an all levels, pay what you can, heart opening aroma yin yoga class.
Yin yoga is a gentle form of yoga, appropriate for any level, and the ultimate self care. In yin, we hold poses for longer amounts of time to allow gravity to take over, our parasympathetic nervous system to kick in gear, and calm in our mind and body. It is TRULY the best hour of self care.
Yoga and aromatherapy have long been traditionally linked through the holistic medical system Ayurveda. Aromatherapy - like yoga - works on the body, mind and spirit. The beautiful impacts are felt both physically and emotionally. Breathing in essential oils stimulates areas of your limbic system, which is the part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviors, sense of smell, and long-term memory. Aromatic botanicals are used to aid meditation and alter mood. Oils are used to heighten relaxation and relieve stress. Scent can create an environment that encourages particular moods - which further enhances your yin practice to a blissful level.
In tonight's class, I will offer you the opportunity to incorporate essential oils throughout your practice.
I believe that kindness matters, in uplifting someone else, in the ripple effect and in paying it forward. I believe that the world needs more love and kindness and that we have the potential to change someone's day with a small gesture.
When I began the MoonRise crystal boutique, I knew that I wanted to incorporate a #CrystalRippleEffect into it from the start, so I began gifting a FREE crystal with every purchase. It's become one of the most important parts of the boutique to me. With each purchase, you'll receive a free crystal - you could keep it for your collection, gift to a friend or share with a stranger. Set an intention behind it and pass those vibes on!
For the entire month of February, you'll be gifted TWO Rose Quartz points (one for you and one for a friend or stranger!) with any purchase totaling $60+!
Nothing special for you to do, a piece will automatically be sent when your purchase totals $60+.
A few weeks ago, I began a weekly tradition called the #CrystalRippleEffect. It's a weekly giveaway to help pay some good forward.
Every Sunday I'll host a contest on the MoonRise Instagram Stories to send TWO Rose Quartz points to the winner - one for them and one to gift to a friend or stranger. I hope that it assists in spreading more love.
