Salt Lamps, Incense, and Embracing Your Inner Hippie

Every thing, every thought has a vibration. When you’re sick, your vibration is low. When you’re doing awesome in life, it’s because your vibration is high. I wanted to help people understand the law of attraction and how to set up a sacred space to keep your vibration high. The higher your vibration, the more success you will attract. This will be an intro for a new series of videos I will do in 2017. So no matter your goals or resolutions, take five minutes to read and watch my latest video about being Zen, keeping your vibration high, shifting your mindset, and manifesting your wildest dreams. Again, this is just an intro, so if you have question, please write them in the comments section so I’m sure to answer them in upcoming videos and blogs.

What is the law of attraction? If you break it down simply, the law of attraction is the idea that our thoughts have great power and through them, positive will attract positive and negative will attract negative. What we all should focus on is keeping our thoughts positive. Love and fear cannot live in the same house. Your fear will squander your very reachable dreams from becoming reality. Open your mind to the infinite possibilities of the universe. No matter your religion, there is great power within us all… let’s learn how to use it.

Each year, I work on my goals; one of my goals for this year is to be connectedmore spiritually to myself, the divine feminine, and to let go of fear. I started today, cleansing my home and my thoughts. The shift is like banging out a dusty rug… my emotions got the best of me and I cried. I cried a lot. As I sit here, I can say the dust is almost gone. I gave into my feelings knowing that my soul was releasing negative and fear. Now, it’s time to press forward and fill the newly cleaned out spaces with hope, creativity, love, and motivation.

The first step in adopting the law of attraction into your life is shifting your thoughts. You are no longer an “aspiring writer”; you’re just a writer. Dream. Believe. Become. It’s that simple. Next, I would suggest filling your home with objects that have positive meaning to you; talismans that calm you, candles that spark your imagination, or anything that draws a positive response and shits your angst to action will help you on your journey to becoming whatever your heart desires.

I say “embrace your inner hippie” because my lifestyle of choice is very much about peace, love, and harmony, learning to respect my own dreams and work toward my goals all while being relaxed, positive, and helping others along the way. If you’re intrigued and want to bring a little peace, love and harmony into your life for the New Year, here are my favorite items to have around my house.

Himalayan Salt Lamps and Candle Holders


They’re great for cleaning the air and have a high vibration. I’ve noticed that it helps my anxiety and allows me to fall asleep faster. The warm light is very soothing, plus, they look damn awesome. I like when things look awesome.


HemingWeigh Himalayan Natural Crystal Salt Rock Tea Light Candle Holder – 2 Pack


WBM Natural Air Purifying Himalayan Salt Lamp with Salt Chunks, Bulb and Dimmer Control, Round Basket Style


WBM Himalayan Glow Hand Carved Natural Crystal Himalayan Salt Lamp with Genuine Neem Wood Base, Bulb and Dimmer Control, 8-to-9-Inch, 8-to-11-Pounds


Reiki Candles


Used for mediation, chakra balancing and healing, sitting in your sacred space, or manifesting your intentions. Candle magic has been used for centuries, but if you don’t believe in magic, you can still use them for all the above reasons! Choose candles based on what you want to attract in your life. Here are some starter bundles I recommend…






I suggest starting out with Frankincense and Myrrh because they promote calm and enlightenment. If it was good for the Three Wise Men, it’s good for me. But, seriously… Frankincense and Myrrh have been used for THOUSANDS of years for all forms of religion and spirituality.






As you dive further into your own spirituality and holistic healing methods, you may want to advance to things like guided meditations, chakra stones and crystals for alignment, or Tibetin Singing Bowls used for sound healing. Check them out… if you’re drawn to it, it might be worth trying out! 




Check back in 2017 for more info on this topic as well as some mental exercises to advance your personal development.

    I am all about embracing the inner hippie. I have essential oils spilling out of my drawers and cabinets and, still, I want more! I feel like they all have different purposes and keep me grounded and sane <3

    I have no connection to my inner hippie. I burn some incense but not that much and not often. I love candles, quiet time and reflection. Crystals are another area I’m not familiar with but would love to learn about.

    I had a salt lamp a few years ago and it made a mess. The salt caused some sort of condensation on my furniture. I ended up getting rid of it. Have you had any issues like that?
