If you feel like you’ve tried just about everything to heal, it can be frustrating. But don’t give up! We’ve put together a list of unique and alternative ways to mend a broken heart.
1. Flower Mandalas
Buddhist monks use mandalas as a way to practice non-attachment. The idea is to create mandalas with intention and care, and then mindfully destroy them to symbolize letting go.
2. Burning Sage
Sage burning is one of the oldest methods to cleanse a person or space. The Latin word for sage, ‘Salvia,’ derives from the word ‘to heal.’ You can burn sage in your home or any other place in need of a good cleanse. Before lighting the sage, take a moment to think deeply about what you want to heal and how you want to feel after.
3. New Moon Ceremony
A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle and a fresh start. It’s a perfect time to envision the positive energy you want to bring into your life. You can do this alone or with friends. If you do this with friends, you magnify the power of your intentions and strengthen your network of support.
Aromatherapy is great for treating stress and anxiety. You can incorporate aromatherapy into your skincare routine or enjoy it in a relaxing bath.
5. Ayurvedic Medicine
In the Ayurvedic tradition, the belief is that illness is a state of imbalance within the body’s systems. That imbalance can be remedied by reading the pulse and observing the tongue. A combination of nutrition counseling, massage, natural medications, meditation is used to address physical and emotional ailments. The tradition has been practiced for over 5,000 years in India.
6. Feng Shui
Feng shui is the ancient Chinese practice of arranging the home or work environment to promote health, happiness, and prosperity. Whether it’s the position of your bed or the color of your wall, feng shui is used to determine the best way to promote positive energy.
Reiki is an ancient Tibetan healing system where a practitioner carries out light hand placements to channel healing energy. It’s commonly used to treat emotional and mental distress as well as chronic and acute physical pain.
