Shiva Rose | Daily Ayurvedic Rituals: Connecting The Healing Power of Our Natural World Through 5 Senses


“A ritual is an intention and a practice when you do it every day. We’re spiritual creatures. Doing rituals grounds me and they connect me to who I am, what my intentions are for the day, and what I want to bring to the world. To alter we need to get to the altar.” – Shiva Rose

How can we use beauty for healing and integrate rituals into our daily lives?

By the end of this episode, you will discover the purpose of rituals, the principles of the three Ayurvedic doshas and how our pain can be transformative.

To alter we need to get to the altar - the altar of God. We need to find what brings us to our knees. That is the very thing that will help us alter ourselves. We won’t change unless we’re pushed. - @TheLocalRoseClick To Tweet

Shiva Rose | Daily Ayurvedic Rituals: Connecting The Healing Power of Our Natural World Through 5 SensesA few years ago Shiva began her blog, The Local Rose, to get closer to the earth and all its beauty. This desire led her on a journey that included solitary walks in forests, swimming in clean seas, and meditation through her Kundalini yoga practice. What came to her one day, after a moment of stillness, was a message. The message was to bring beauty and luminosity to women in a way that was nourishing and nurturing.

Shiva's Promise

So many products women consume, even some that claim to be all natural, contain harmful and toxic ingredients. Our skin is the largest organ, and therefore what we put on our bodies and face literally gets absorbed directly through contact. Her skin care line is 100% toxic free, and without any chemicals. The rose face serum was created to bring radiance and nourishment to the face. It is made with loving intentions and in small batches to insure it’s optimal integrity.

Walk in Beauty, Walk in Light

Her candle is in a toxic-free coconut based candle with rose, agar wood and vanilla. The body oils are all hand blended using unusual essential oils that benefit the skin and spirit. The glow balm and radiant rose water are recent additions that add luminous texture and are anti aging. Soon to come a few more products that use ancient wisdom and powerful ingredients.

May you walk in beauty, may you walk in the light . . .

Power Quotes From The Show

Ritual is an intention and a practice when you do it every day. We’re spiritual creatures. It grounds me and it connects me to who I am, what my intentions are for the day, what I want to bring to the world.' - @TheLocalRoseClick To Tweet

Asking for Guidance from God

“I talk to God, and I ask for guidance. Sometimes it’s as simple as “Show me the way, God.”… If you ask with sincerity, with an open heart, you will get a sign.” – Shiva Rose

Healing through Beauty

“Beauty is a healing modality – that’s the opposite of fear, opposite of depression.” – Shiva Rose

Expression of Our Freedom

“People are being forced to become automated working slaves, and not having these expressions of ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t want to be in this Matrix. I don’t want to work 9 to 5. I don’t want to get a bunch of shots. I don’t want to be a part of this system, to be forced to do things.' We’re free beings.” – Shiva Rose
