Default Your method of self-healing and destress

Hi everyone. I would like to know what are your methods to heal yourself and destressing yourself from the daily grind?

I have my own methods, but I am curious to know how other members do it for themselves.

I do Bikram Yoga, it take me out of my head and lets me focus on the now....

If I am sick, very rare, I sleep with my Lemurian crystals. It works for me.

Maintenance wise, I hike in the woods, I sit outside an hour every day reading, I meditate, and I cook and garden. basic magical practise such as grounding and projecting a circle/circulating light is very good for me as well.

I've been slack on yoga but I feel 2000 times better when I practise, so that's a goal too.

If I'm ill, I soak in herbal baths, drink herbal concoctions appropriate to the illness, turn my mind off with stuff like tv and magazines for a bit.

And rest. Sometimes I sleep in my temple.

I like sleeping in my temple and sacred space too.

Lots of water.........water is the elixir of life gives and sustains energy.

Every morning for healing energy and protection i invoke the gold ray of christ (as given by brotherhood guides)for healing energy and protection, and put myself in a golden bubble.

sometimes if feeling particularly jaded i will visualise a golden waterfall and stand in it, as gold is a powerful cleanser.
Also at night before sleep and after absent healing ritual with candle, i will sit in the lotus flower and meditate. My guides will then come and give me the energies i need.

Wow you were reading my mind!
It's always been water with me. When I don't feel good I want to be in a bath, shower or any other form of water. Somehow that's what always helps me feel better.

I find water very healing too, so I drink water and shower often. I also know plants gives off very good energy, so I sit in a park close to a tree and learn to breath. Air tends to be a lot better around trees and flowers.

I never thought about a possible connection with the whole water and healing thing until somewhat recently. It's interesting to find out that so many others feel the same way.

I can remember being pregnant with my youngest daughter and I had such a horrible time sleeping all the way through that pregnancy. I would get up almost every night in the middle of the night and run a bath... soak for a good long time and then I'd go right to sleep.

When I'm ill now... I will sometimes take 4 or 5 showers a day! Any time I'm that uncomfortable that's the first thing I can think of to help make me feel better.

Atlantis and Lemuria are very watery worlds. But there's something soothing about water.

Oh, did anyone around here ever had a massage? I loved getting one!
