|One of the things that draws me to a healer or spiritual practitioner is their passion for all areas of spiritual growth, and rather than aligning with one singular area of spirituality, Nyasha explains that she also is open to absorbing spiritual wisdom of all kinds: “I know that what resonates with me at any one time won’t necessary always be what I’m drawn to. My spiritual practice evolves as I learn, grow and evolve”. At the moment Nyasha is really drawn to understanding more about plants, herbs and their metaphysical properties. “I’m interested in brewing tonics and elixirs that heal the body from the inside as an accompaniment to the energy healing I do. I’m also really interested in sound healing which I know it will be a significant area of my path. I am currently in the process of exploring my relationship to healing frequencies through my voice and through music”.
“Self care means showing up for myself in the times when it’s most difficult to be self-loving” Nyasha tells me “Self care means being conscious of my thoughts and choosing empowering, compassionate thoughts as opposed to judgmental or self-critical thoughts. Self care means treating my body like a temple, and allowing myself to rest and follow my joy. Self care means being authentic about where I’m struggling, and being willing to take responsibility for myself and my impact on other people and the world. Self care means loving all aspects of me, light and shadow, and knowing that on this path of healing and expansion, I know I’m always doing my best with what I have in any given moment, and that is enough”.
“I ground myself daily, and spend time gazing at the trees, or the rippling water in the canal near my London home. I try to spend time outside connecting to the sun, moon and sky whenever possible, or communing with plants and trees” Nyasha relays “I am so grateful for the lessons nature offers us. I love to take a healing bath with essential oils. epsom salts, crystals and meditation music. This is how I most like to unwind. I choose to populate my environment with things that balance energy and stimulate the senses like crystals and plants. My home is softly lit with candles and salt lamps, it smells like incense, sage and palo santo, and it sounds like the sweet melodies of my favourite musician at a given moment. I also have lots of plump cushions and soft blankets around to make sitting and relaxing comfortable for myself and my guests”.
Nyasha also cleanses her energy daily with sage and palo santo, pulls guidance cards, journals, and asks the universe for assistance she ever feels like she is struggling with something: “I also love to connect with my soul family through intimate and authentic conversation; often I find the energy cultivated when I connect with resonant souls can lead to big realisations, downloads of awareness and rapid shifts of consciousness” she tells me. An ideal evening for Nyasha consists of attending a sound bath or cacao ceremony with like-minded souls, singing devotional songs, moving her body to music “connecting to the divine, then returning home for a relaxing bath, journaling whilst burning incense, drinking a night-time tea, and finally laying my head down to rest with lavender oil on my temples and crystals beneath my pillow”. Nyasha is Vegan so consumes a plant-based diet that includes lots of fruit and vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. “I love eating food that nourishes my body and supports me to thrive” she says.
