✌🏾️ Two quick ways to shift into a calm, chill, better, higher vibrational mood are:

1. GO OUTSIDE Near Plants/Flowers/Trees
2. GET IN THE SUN

»Plants elevate our mood, they help us to breathe deeper (which calms the nervous system), they give us cleaner-high frequency oxygen and they raise our vibration all around
»Sunlight feeds your melanin and brain their main happy nutrient ‘Vitamin D’, it cleanses the energy field, heightens spiritual awareness and raises our vibration
»

The great news is that you don’t have to be in the rain forest, mountains, the beach, the botanical gardens or travel, to benefit from all nature has to offer. You can simply go and sit by a tree or plants in your home or local community and benefit greatly. The other great news is yes, all the places I mentioned are necessary and should be invested in at some point on your journey yearly- or as often as you can. But for practicality purposes, your nearest tree, park, plants, flower bush/tree, garden and clear open skies, will do.

Happy International Women’s Day! 

To celebrate we’ll be sharing, throughout the day, a number of artworks by women in the Ashmolean’s collections.                                                

A ‘Forest Floor’ Still Life of Flowers
Oil on canvas by Rachel Ruysch (1664–1750)

Bequeathed to the Ashmolean Museum by Daisy Linda Ward in 1939

Rachel Ruysch, according to the artist, was taught by Willem van Aelst. From her studio in Amsterdam, she painted a long succession of flower paintings, several fruit pieces and a number of 'forest floors’ of which this is a relatively early example.
