There is no question that with the state of world lately, many of us have become weary in so many ways, about so many things. Some have been on a search for things to help comfort the mind, body, and soul. I know I have. And I came across MindBodyFaith.
MindBodyFaith caught my eye first because it is Veteran owned, and if you follow me, you know my hubby is one of our Wounded Warriors. And we highly support and love our veterans. But the more I learned, the more I like about Miss Sherrell, and her company. Sherrell is the creator of MindBodyFaith. She resides in the D.C metro area with her family and has always had a passion for educating and helping those in pain. Sherrell has had her fair share of challenges with arthritis, depression, anxiety, and racial trauma - as hers is also a proud female Black owned company. But through it all Sherrell held onto her faith, incorporating contemplative and wellness practices to support her health and well-being. Her personal wellness journey and renewed relationship with Christ birthed MindBodyFaith with a mission to promote health and healing through faith, holistic wellness practices, and products. Sherrell is a proud military veteran, author, and mental health advocate. She has taught over 1,000 hours of yoga and is considered an experienced registered yoga teacher (E-RYT 200) with the National Yoga Alliance. She holds various certifications in the area of yoga, meditation, and natural and spiritual health. She is a member of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and a certified natural health professional (CNHP) through Trinity School of Natural Health. With over 10 years of experience in the wellness industry. She loves traveling and teaching communities and families how to live a more meditative life using contemplative and natural health practices for living well, inside and out.
I was gifted the Candle Gift Set and I love it! It includes two hand-poured perfume-grade candles, in the Presence and Rest scents, plus a set of meditation prayer cards. When God feels far away and you're running on empty it's time to reconnect with an intention of resting in God's presence. In Genesis, the Spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters. Light the Presence candle, pause, and meditate as you allow the presence of God to hover in you, through you, and around you. Presence Candle: Exclusive blend of fine fragrances of mahogany, amber, and lavender. Rest Candle: Blend of blend of sandalwood, bergamot, tropical fruits, vanilla, caramel and patchouli. Vegan - Poured in the USA! Meditation Prayer Cards: Cultivate a Christian meditation practice using scriptures and meditative affirmations categorized by the face cards: Presence, Blessings, Breath, Rest. The candles smell great and who doesn't love a candle? I sure do. And I enjoyed the cards as well, as a way to reflect with some one on on time with myself and my thoughts and the Lord.
Also, there is a quiz on the website that helps you determine a good way for you to meditate and reflect. My results were Moving Meditation. Moving Meditation is great for those who enjoy the outdoors. Consider creation gazing while walking around your neighborhood or at a park. This technique allows you to connect with God by observing and reflecting on his wondrous creation. Also, consider a labyrinth. Walking a labyrinth is a kind of moving meditation.
