Hi everyone!

My name is Lauren Firenza I am founder and creator crystal jewellery brand FIRENZA (Instagram: @iamfirenza).

I hand make and sell bespoke crystal necklaces, rings, earrings and Shad keychains!

I started my journey into hand made crystal jewellery in March 2017 when I was studying Business Management & Leadership at university.  I wanted (needed!) a creative release and outlet, as I felt I was trapped studying something I found interesting, but didn’t make me feel free. I felt somewhat restricted by how little I could express myself when I was in that environment. So FIRENZA was born!

My love for crystals began when my bohemian mum would put a little rose quartz in my school blazer pocket so I could carry her love with me everywhere. I realised I was a crystal magpie when I would go on school trips or go on holiday and the most exciting part for me was to go on the hunt for crystals!

Crystals have always been a part of me since I was young so growing up with such great love for them they have always been part of my inner healing and protection. They have helped me through desperate times, and they have helped me through life situations we all face. Things like break ups, family losses, anxiety and stress.

However working with crystals and their healing energy has been even more involved in my life this year when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. 

No one can prepare you for cancer. I went into my journey with it with a positive mindset of mind over matter. Super strong support system, understanding everything I have and am about to go through is temporary and throughout this journey having my trusty crystals by my side to keep me calm, focused and emotionally stable. I will share the ones I use with you below and their meanings and how you can also benefit from their magic.

You can also follow my cancer journey on Instagram: @glowing.withtheflow. I talk about my journey on here along with my spiritual practices and lots more on how I keep my positive mind set on cancer.

I have made a list of my top 5 crystal picks which have helped me in my everyday life and darkest times and these are:

 

 

1) Clear Quartz: This beautiful Crystal is my everyday crystal which I wear as a necklace and under my pillow at night. It’s used for emotional balancing and mental clarity. It also helps you stay focused during those rocky days you might feel a little uneasy about life. 

2) Amethyst: This crystal is for is relieving anxiety and is a great crystal to calm the mind and body. It is supportive of the emotional part of your body. So it brings those of you who may be overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed back to centre. For those of you who are un aware of what ‘back to centre’ means, this is a phrase used to explain the re-balance on our energies in our body.Its like a re set button.

The Amethyst also eases the mental anxieties and is a comforting crystal for those grieving the loss of a loved one.

3) Labradorite: This is my other everyday crystal that I live in! A crystal of “Transformation” and “Grounding”, Labradorite is a useful companion through change and perseverance. It provides strength, determination & intuition in times of change or conflict.

Not to mention, when it’s in the light, this stunning crystal flickers blues flashes and is completely mesmerising! 

4) Moonstone: A magical stone for “new beginnings”. Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. It soothes emotional instability and stress. It also stabilises the emotions, providing you with calmness.

If you’re feeling lost, this is a great crystal to meditate with and in get in touch with our inner feelings. Again like the Labradorite this crystal becomes iridescent under light and also flickers stunning blue flashes!

5) Black Obsidian: Obsidian is the “Protection Stone”.  This is worn to grounds you, calm you & protect you from negative energy. Whether that be in a workplace, a relationship, a friendship or everyday life situations. It is also known as the “grief stone” as it helps those dealing with the loss of a loved one to identify hidden feelings of anger and grief, this then allows you to relieve emotional blockages so the healing process can begin.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post. I hope I have given you a simple understanding on crystals and the magic they possess and how they help me and can help you too.

I hope I have helped or can help anyone who may be going through any of the things I have spoken about in todays blog.

Hi! So most of you know me from Instagram @grac13_uk.

I started getting a lot of questions on my DM about the types of meditation I do.

My brand connects with summer, holidays, having fun, living life and feeling good about yourself. Thats why I design so you guys can feel and look great. So therefore, I want to share this with you, to guide you into a happier mind set for your spring and summer. Especially for those of you who don't get much time off so your summer holiday is extra important to you and you want to be the best possible version of yourself.

Now a lot of people will find meditation hard because you can't "switch off" or you can't find the time. Yet you want to start somewhere right? Or even just give it a go?

So I discovered a really easy time effective way to meditate. I started this on my own with no guidance about 4 years ago. I still do it once a week. However I am now years deep into my journey so I do other types of meditation and energy work.

This stuff doesn't just happen over night, so don't put yourself down if you don't get it first time round. It takes time, patience and most of all commitment. Not just commitment to the activities to better your soul but commitment to YOURSELF which inevitably reflects on your self love.

For some people this cleansing meditation will be more than enough when you do it daily and you might be happy with that. For others you may decide eventually you want to continue your journey and do more, there is no right or wrong, there is no judgement here.

I am a firm believer (in the words of Kyle Grey) that even if you just TRY every day to to connect with yourself  the universe will recognise your attempts and for this you will benefit.

Now, I do hear a lot of people say taking a cold shower in the morning is good for you and it should be part of your moring ritual. But if your anything like me, WHO THE HELL wants to wake up dreading having to be cold in the shower!!! NOT ME!

I want to start my day on a positive note and enjoy my morning , enjoy that ten minutes I have to just be on my own, no kids, no phone, no pets, just me before I go to work in warm water. So thats what I do! I love a nice hot bath or shower in the morning to boost my morning.

Now I personally have baths but this works in the shower too, especially if you are pushed for time. You don't have to do this in the morning, If you take a bath or a shower at night then thats totally fine too.

Anyway, I am really new to this so best crack on... but I mainly wanted to share this with you especially linked to my work because I know the pressure of work life, social life, personal life and social media life can be really hard to compress and cope with sometimes.

I hope this helps you like it did me and gives you that little boost you need each day to feel alive, because after all we are here to LIVE AND BE ALIVE and most of all be HAPPY 🙂

 

 

STEP 1: Light your candle in a safe place

STEP 2 FOR BATH: Pop some epsom salt in the bath and then being to fill it up to your required temperate.

STEP 2 FOR SHOWER: Turn your shower on to your required temperature

STEP 3: FOR BATH: Get in your bath and just relax for a moment let the water hit you and take three slow controlled deep breaths to release all tension until you sink into your body.

STEP 3 FOR SHOWER: Get in your shower and let the water fall over your body and take three slow controlled deep breaths to release all tension until you sink into your body.

I want you to say this mantra out loud or in your head for the next steps

" I am letting go of all the negativity and releasing it from this part of my body"

As you say this mantra I want you to imagine a black tar leaving that part of your body, being washed away by the water around you or falling on to you.

You might get overwhelmed the fist time you do it. If you get to a part of your body that needs more time then take the time on that part, if you feel like crying because your letting go, cry. Its all part of the process. I cry all the time when I do this, because when you start to do it you can feel the energy in certain areas of your body so it can be emotional.

Remember the mantra and the visualisation is very important for each step whilst keeping your breathing at a nice  controlled pace.

STEP 4 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your shampoo and wash your hair, as you are rubbing your shampoo into your head imagine you are rubbing away that black tar from your head. As you wash away the foam say the MANTRA and imagine the black tar washing down the drain leaving your head feeling light and almost empty.

STEP 5 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your face wash and repeat the same thing on your face and neck.

STEP 6 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your shower gel and move to your chest and heart area.You want to create space in your heart, you might feel its acing, this will help you release them toxic energies. Repeat the same thing.

STEP 7 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move onto your arms start at the top and repeat the same thing pushing the foamy shower gel from the top of your arm to your finger tips repeating the same thing.

STEP 8 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move onto your stomach where your anxiety lies , we want to release the knots. So massage your shower gel and then push from the middle out repeating the same thing until you feel light and almost empty.

Were almost there... keep going!

STEP 9 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move onto your bum and repeat the same thing from the middle out.

STEP 1O FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Move to your legs, similar to how you pushed the black tar energy out of your arms, do the same from the top of your legs to the tips of your toes.

STEP 11 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take 3 deep breaths and imagine your whole body is just light and almost empty ,you have now gotten rid of that negative black tar that was stuck inside your body creating blocks, so WELL DONE!

STEP 12 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: SMILE, and just let the water hit you / surround you.

We now go onto our second mantra.

"May my body mind and soul be filled with this golden light of positivity".

STEP 13 FOR BATH AND SHOWER: Take your conditioner and condition your hair give yourself a nice head massage, feel the relaxation of your body and how light you are. Imagine that conditioner is a bright gold light of positivity that has being massaged into your head and as you wash it out imagine it leading all the way down, through your face, your neck and back, your heart and chest, down your arms to the tips of your fingers, filling your whole body up with a soft golden magical light, as it passes through your stomach,lower back, bum, thighs all the way to the tips of your toes.

Now wiggle your toes and fingers and imagine your whole body filled with this amazing energy.

Dry off obviously!!

" Thank you for the water and the fire, air, earth and spirit, thank you universe" then blow out your candle.

I hope that was easy enough for you and I hope this helps you. Please be free to leave comments and good luck!
