How are you grounding yourself these days? Some of us are still running around with our heads cut off and not having our usual ways of letting off steam (or consuming excess food and drink) while others are finding overdue projects around the house are finally getting your attention.

I have found that many people in the energy healing business and some that are not are in agreement that Mother Earth is simply fighting to take back balance. Mother Earth also provides us with natural healing properties. Think about the last time you were around areas with lots rocks or crystals. Did you know that the sand on beaches is part of the natural erosion process of water breaking down rocks into smaller pieces and depositing them in different areas. I was reminded of this during homeschooling my forth grader on a science lesson this week.

Watch this short video on crystals from our former Reiki Master that attuned me as a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner, then I’ll pass some thoughts your way.


I have often heard people say how relaxed they feel after a good beach visit. Let’s break it down into maybe a way you haven’t thought of before. If the beach sand is actually ground up rocks and possibly crystals then you are basically being grounded simply by being barefooted with the earth.

Grounding Crystals (for more specifics google their benefits as I wanted to keep this post short)

  • Hematize
  • Smoky Quartz
  • Red Jasper
  • Jet
  • Bloodstone
  • Petrified Wood
  • Moss Agate
  • Black Obsidian

We need to be thinking of grounding ourselves more and more these days with the ever increasing use of technology and electronics.Since so many of us use technology such as laptops, cell phones, televisions, smart watches, etc than we ever have before know that we are being exposed to more electromagnetic frequencies (aka: electromagnetic frequency radiation) that can affect your health.We’re hearing more & more about cell phone radiation and how that can be harmful to our health. (Thank goodness the word is finally getting out about that!)

Some symptoms of excess EMF radiation are: 

  • fatigue
  • joint & muscle pain
  • decreased attention span
  • memory loss
  • difficulty focusing
  • insomnia
  • ringing in the ears 

BTW, these are the same symptoms of being un-grounded…of feeling stuck or out of sorts!

Just like in the video Diana (de-awna) says to pick what resonates with you. Try listening to your own intuition when it comes to picking the right stone(s) from the lists. When I took a crystal certification class I was overwhelmed with how much there really is to learn about all the different crystals and minerals available to us.

Let ‘s make this post easy and give you a few choices clearing EMF’s (electromagnetic frequencies radiation). They are present everywhere in our environment but are invisible to the human eye. Place up 1 or 2 of these near your devices or wear as a necklace or bracelet.

Crystals to Protect against EMF’s

  • Orgonite
  • Fluorite
  • Lepidolite
  • Shungite
  • Black Tourmaline
  • Adventurine

But, times are different and we’re on lock down with the COVID19 and doing all our training online video and kicking some butts in peoples own spaces. They have been surprised how much we can get their heart rates up, muscles burning and are so appreciative for our help in designing a custom workout program during quarantines.

Even though Energy Fitness personal training studio in Downtown Memphis isn’t onsite training clients for now since we are now virtual we still feel compelled to give nutrition and fitness advice.

It’s the perfect time to hone in on your diet and feel the best you can feel as you try and consume the 8-12 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day. Try and limit the fruits to 2 if you are aiming to lose weight. A whole lot of us are now cooking a lot more than we previously did with our former go when and where we want lifestyles of pre-Covid.

Eat your veggies! This one of the most popular pieces of nutrition advice you will ever hear. Rightfully so. A diet rich in vegetables (and fruits) reduces the risk for pretty much all diseases. Today, only 10 percent of Americans eat the recommended amount. I hear from my children often as they smell dinner in progress and walk in the kitchen…”Of course veggies, why do we always have to eat veggies…uggh!” I will say that when my oldest would go on Scouting camp outs he would come home and crave veggies.

Think of this as a time to see just how great your skin can look as well as how much you can improve your energy or sleep quality. Celebrate your health by eating as many fresh greens as you can.

  • Eating varied, fresh produce can help boost your immune system, something we can all relate with in this crazy time.
  • Can’t or don’t want to go to the grocery as often then grab some frozen veggies as it’s the next best thing and is often easier as the veggies are already chopped.
  • Go online and order some greens powders.

Below is a suggested basic meal plan

This meal plan is a suggestion of how you might increase your greens intake as a daily meal plan. I’m not discussing calories or exact amounts of calories for each meal or total calories daily. As related to the serving size of vegetables to count as a serving a serving size is 1/2 to 1 cup depending on type.  Choose a lean protein and be sure to get some good fat into your diet with lunch and dinner like avocado or avocado oil, olive oil or healthy nut butters like almond or cashew (I do not recommend peanuts as a healthy choice-research peanuts and aflatoxins).

Breakfast:   Protein shake with powdered greens (may favorites:spirulina, chorella) or go fresh and blend spinach or kale.

Mid-morning snack: Organic Greens bar (click to see my recommendation on vitacost)

Lunch: Big salad of mixed greens and steamed broccoli and enjoy freshly cut avocado wedges . Season with lime juice, a bit of olive oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pair with lean protein.

Mid-afternoon Snack: kale chips or square rice cakes flavored with thyme and basil (found at Sprouts or online )
I have my rice cakes with cashew nut butter and don’t care that they taste like veggies. You can always just have a spoonful of nut butter and then rinse your mouth and chase it with the flavored rice cakes.

Dinner (2 hours before bedtime): steamed or baked green beans, asparagus, mustard greens (bitters are great before bed) with olive or avocado oil healthy fat and protein. Try some lemon pepper seasoning or sandwich sprinkle seasoning from Penzey’s, use a curry seasoning, tumeric or cumin or create a green tahini dressing by pulsing 1 cup cold water, 1/2 cup lemon juice, 1/2 cup tahini, a bunch of Italian parsley, and 1/2 a teaspoon of salt in a blender.

Here’s to great skin and all the other benefits that go along with consuming healthier foods in abundance!

A client at Energy Fitness inspired this post as her son is an award winning swimmer. His duck footed stance is great for one stroke but terrible for freestyle/front crawl stroke. Do you know someone that walks with turned out feet or do you? Do you squat or do other exercises or climb stairs with turned out feet? Sleep this way?

This post is during Covid lockdown so he’s not able to get in the pool for actual swim workouts. His mom purchased a concept 2 ski erg since she likes the one we have at Energy Fitness. I made this video after writing the program based on what muscles need fascial release, strengthening and stretching. I use to have this problem when I didn’t specifically focus on keeping certain muscles balanced and stretched so it was easy to create this program.

If you are going to implement this program into your routine try twice a week. Also be mindful of how you are standing, sitting and sleeping as you could easily undo the work by having habits that keep those feet turned out.

With more people working from home during this Covid crisis many of us are finding that we are in or around the kitchen a lot more. That can result in many more opportunities to decide to put something in your mouth regardless of if you are hungry or not. Check out a video I did in my own kitchen 4 years ago as the same principles and advice still applies today. It’s the small changes both in your environment and your mind that add up to big results for behavior change.

What can you do in your own kitchen, pantry, office, purse, briefcase or work area to increase your chances of nutritional success and properly fueling a great functioning body for optimal performance?

Usually this is where we tell you what we offer and see if you want to come in for FREE consult, schedule a massage or Nutrition Coaching Services onsite.
