Incredible energy is now available

Today is a day to offer insight and understanding based on our own experiences, communicating the essence of bliss to everyone. A day to persevere, as the efforts of our own labour eventually do come to fruition.

Acknowledge your light

Today is a day to consciously bring attention into our belly, the golden area of our body, to help enliven the ancient wisdom that lies within us; to find love and compassion within, so that we can put love in to the little things in daily life.

Testimonial:

“Having been kindly sent some samples of AEOS products, I have been using AEOS for the past two weeks and my skin feels wonderful! I have very sensitive skin which often reacts to most products (even organic brands) – however, AEOS products work so well – they completely re-balance my skin and give my skin a dewy/glowing complexion. I definitely feel the positive energy from the crystals which makes me feel revitalized and refreshed every time I use your products. I feel very lucky to have discovered a company that [Read more…]

Do it your way

Today is a day to put attention to one of Vicky Wall’s favourite thoughts: “head in heaven, feet on earth, centre flowing free”. To have peace in our conscious mind combined with grounding and strength in our subconscious mind, with attention placed on the golden area of our body where intuition and “gut instincts” come about, healing and transformation become more possible, thus heavenly possibilities are brought to earth.

Angels are close to your heart

Today is day to balance our emotions, to let go of the feelings of wishing to be where someone else is, or wanting what someone else has. When we do this, we can experience the joy that we have within.

What inspires also guides

Today is a day to let go of anything that may be causing you anxiety or suffering so that a new wisdom may come about, leading to profound joy. In terms of our skin care, perhaps it is time to let go of what our current or past skin conditions may be so that a new layer of radiance may be brought about.

Be prepared to learn a different way

Today is a day to make space for the deepest joy to spring from within the depths of the self. When we find the balance between the truth of our heart and the wisdom of our belly, we are likely to be honest and have integrity.

Get that top-to-toe glow with a little ‘chi’

You may have heard of chi before, but what is it exactly and what has it ever done for you? Look into the belief system of any ancient civilization and you’ll probably come across the concept of a ‘life force’, the energy that differentiates all living beings from inanimate objects. It’s known as prana in India, ki in Japan and the Great Spirit by Native Americans. The Chinese called this life force chi (qi), and an abundance of chi is believed to make a person energised and vibrantly alive, healthy and youthful in appearance, as well as physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually balanced. “Does it come bottled?” we hear you ask, well… not quite!

The idea that influencing one’s chi can help to heal the body is central to the practice of Chinese traditional medicine and acupuncture. Improving the flow of chi also forms the basis of Tai Chi, Qi Gong and other types of Taoist martial and healing arts. Reported benefits of these practices range from better balance and flexibility to increased mental wellbeing.

The beauty of learning to work with chi is that once you know how to access it, you have this wonderful resource within you all the time – and it’ll literally be at your fingertips whenever you need a physical or mental boost. Ready to embrace the Eastern wisdom in your life? Read on to start increasing the flow of chi in your life!

  1. Tune into your chi and strengthen your body to boot

Tai Chi

If you’ve ever spotted a group of people doing a slow martial art-like dance in a park, chances are you’ve already seen Tai Chi in action! Often described as “meditation in motion”, Tai Chi originated in 13th-century China as a martial art. Today there are a number of styles, with those focusing on health comprising of continuous slow and fluid movements combined with deep breathing and focus on physical sensations, helping both mind and body release tension and find a state of calm. Tai chi is designed to promote a healthy flow and circulation of chi and to correct any imbalances. Thanks to being a gentle, low impact exercise, Tai Chi can be easily adapted for any age and ability.

Qi Gong (Chi Kung)

Like Tai Chi, Qi Gong has been practised in China for centuries for its health enhancing effects. Comprised of repetitions of move sets performed with a mindful intent and designed to stretch and open energy channels in the body for the optimum flow of chi to increase vitality, Qi Gong’s emphasis is on deep relaxation and breathing. Though a discipline in its own right, Qi Gong is also often practised alongside Tai Chi training.

For a taste of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, get flowing with this routine (Video).

Yoga & Pilates

Can’t find a Tai Chi or Qi Gong class locally? Yoga might be an excellent ‘chi’-boosting option for you. Though not based on Taoist philosophy, yoga has its own traditions of working with the energy flow in the body by influencing its energy centres (chakras) through stretches and poses. Or get hooked into Pilates, the core strength and endurance building exercise system developed in the ’20s by Joseph Pilates, that borrows elements from both yoga and martial arts. Either way, you’ll reap the benefits of greater physical strength and flexibility!

  1. Have a chi(-fi)lled moment right now

In addition to the above practices, there are many simple and quick exercises that can be used to awaken and increase the flow of chi – all you need is a quiet moment. Some exercises focus on breathing, others on posture or relaxation. It’s good to experiment with all to find those that work best for you – and to keep doing them daily to create a lasting effect. Some of the positive physical effects you may experience include feeling more energetic, relaxed and comfortable in your body. Mentally you may begin to feel calmer and more centred.

The exercise below is designed to strengthen chi through breathing. Before you begin, wear loose, unrestrictive clothing if possible and find a peaceful place where you can spend a few moments without being disturbed!

The ultimate breathing exercise to strengthen chi

  1. Get into a comfortable position, either cross-legged or kneeling on the floor, in a chair with your back straight or lying down.
  2. Focus on your breath, inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth. Become aware of the movement of air in and out of your body.
  3. Gently deepen your breathing, fully involving your diaphragm with each breath. Feel your belly expand with each inhale and contract with each exhale (you may want to place your hand on your belly).
  4. If you feel like this deep breathing comes naturally (otherwise keep practising daily), try ‘breathing in a square’: inhale, count to 5 slowly while you hold your breath, exhale, count to five again while you hold your breath. Keep going as long as you wish.
  5. Tune into your body. How do you feel? You may notice the increased flow of chi as warmth or a ‘tingle’ in your body.

Wait for the right time

Today is a day to find the compassion in the process of seeing our self, so as to develop more self-acceptance. When looking in the mirror at the end of the day to cleanse and moisturize your skin how do you perceive yourself? If there is any self-judgment or criticism, today is a day to practice more kindness and warmth toward yourself, which in turn may invite more love and lightness in to your life.

The future is glorious

Today is a day to give love through attention to the little things, with a little creativity. When cleansing your skin, give attention and use gentle circular motions and light patting on the skin.00AEOS-Range

When selecting which products to use from the AEOS range, become aware and notice the changes during different times of the year and adjust the usage of your products accordingly, so that the skin does not become dehydrated or over moisturized and thus congested.

There are endless possibilities

Today is a day to develop a sense of acceptance and care for ourself. To let go of the judgement we have of ourself so that this overflows to our thoughts about everyone else, bringing about a new consciousness of cooperation and compassion, offering caring and warmth for the benefit of everyone.

AEOS pink products are enhanced with the crystal essences of fire opal, rose quartz and rub elite, and may assist in encouraging and

replenishing these pink qualities of self-acceptance, kindness, love and warmth within oneself.
