HI! HOLA! I'm Mischaela
The Glow of Wellness Blog was created to share my expertise and experiences with holistic and spiritual wellness treatments and traditional and intuitive healing in all forms.
I dream of a world where spiritual wellness treatments are pursued with the same enthusiasm as the classic Mani-Pedi!
Gisele Bundchen is many things - one of the highest paid models of all time, one of the front runners in the group of women that made curves fashionable again after the era of skinny models, and one half of one of the most watched celebrity couples. It’s her role in the latter that we are talking about today, because it would seem that Bundchen is out of the broom closet. Yes, Tom Brady shares in a number of interviews all of the rituals and the incredible Gisele quote “She said you’re lucky you married a witch – I’m just a good witch,” Brady said.
According to Brady, his former supermodel wife sets up an altar at all of his games - to energetically ensure his success and reinforce all of the energetic and intention work they do off the field. Brady relayed that Gisele gives him drops that she makes that are in some undisclosed holistic way, supposed to help his performance and ensure his success. Bundchen, much like fellow one half of power couple Kimye, Kim Kardashian...is also a believer in the power of crystal healing. Self described good witch Gisele Bundchen has been known to prescribe crystals to Tom
Brady to aid in his visualization of winning whatever given match up the Patriots may be up against.
Tom said "Gisele always makes a little altar for me at the game because she just wills it so much.” The area includes photos of the couple’s children for motivation. “And I have these little special stones and healing stones and protection stones and she has me wear a necklace and take these drops she makes, I say all these mantras, And I stopped questioning her a long time ago. I just shut up and listen.”
Bundchen has been open about her faith, practices, and spirituality...opening up to publications like the Wall Street Journal and Vogue with openness and positivity. So much openness in fact, that the Wall Street Journal described former supermodel Bundchen as the "ethereal high priestess of fashion, fitness, and fabulosity". In the bounds of the same interview, a picture of Gisele was painted with words - a picture that described the former VS Angel as "lugging in chunks of crystal that she had put out under the previous nights super blue blood moon" The writer commented on the most notable aspect of Bundchen...that she's like a living sunbeam due to her positivity.
Gisele commented, “I’m an optimistic person,” she says. “I believe that what we give energy to is what grows. If you focus on positivity and this higher, lighter vibration of love and good things, they will eventually come.”
A student of life, the supermodel turned author draws from astrology, Buddhism, Taoism and the Mexican spiritual guru Don Miguel Ruiz—she even gave everyone at her 2009 wedding his book The Mastery of Love. She meditates every morning, and even went so far as to leverage meditation as a method to breathe through the pain of childbirth. Having given birth to son Benjamin Rein Brady in a pool of water in the Boston apartment she shared with husband Tom Brady when the time came.
Not only is the witchy woman a fan of crystals, meditation, and astrology - she believes in the power of vibration. When she named her skincare like, she chose the name "Sejaa". From the Portuguese word "seja" meaning "to be"; but Gisele added the extra a because as a firm believer in the vibration of words - she wanted the title of the skincare line to be an exhalation of ahhhh! and the feeling of letting go and breathing outward.
The start of Gisele's dive into spirituality and esoteric wisdom came during some of her busiest periods in her career. She elaborates in an interview with Vogue that she felt like her life had turned into "wake up, take pictures, go to sleep, wake up the next day and take pictures". In that blur, the model logged on to Amazon and typed in "spiritual books" as a query into the search engine. This led to a passion for the writings of Miguel Ruiz, which taught Gisele first and foremost to rely on her own instinct: “The more you trust your intuition, the more empowered you become, the stronger you become, and the happier you become.”
Absolutely a sentiment that I can get behind, because that is what the Inner Glow Up book is all about. Unburdening yourself with outdated energy, mindsets, and coping mechanisms that keep you disconnected from your intuition.

On a season 16 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim and Kanye visited his hometown of Chicago. The couple met with one of Kanye’s old friends, Ryhmefest to talk about interpersonal drama that took place on Twitter where Kim felt that Rhymefest was saying unfounded things about her husband. The trio worked out their differences and Rhymefest extended an olive branch in the form of a small gift to Kim. It was a bit shocking to those who don't know the spiritual side of the middle Kardashian sister.
Rhymefest gifted Kim Kardashian a healing crystal called a herkimer diamond. The crystal is not truly a diamond but instead is a double-terminated quartz crystal. The herkimer diamond is a stone that is known for helping amplify energy, and are often called the "high vibe seekers" of the crystal world. The gorgeous stone is reported to manifest pure light and act as powerful multipliers of spiritual energy. A wonderful crystal to give, and to receive.
This seemed like a small token of friendship and a small gesture, but in reality it had a bigger meaning. Kim Kardashian made it public knowledge that she used healing crystals to get over the now infamous Paris robbery that parted her with the tremendous 20 carat diamond ring from husband Kanye West. The reality tv star and cosmetics, fragrance, and shape wear mogul in the making took time off after the incident due to understandable PTSD around the terrifying and unfortunate ordeal. She relayed to The Cut...
"I took some time off last year. And when I did, it seems everyone who came over would bring me healing crystals," Kardashian West said. "I didn’t know much about them at first, but I investigated them and got really into them. I’m around them more now, and it’s been really cool. I don’t have tons of them in my house, but they seem to give off an overall calm energy."
In true Kim K fashion, she was able to spin a positive out of the negative ordeal and was inspired by the crystals during the creative process for her fragrance line. The reality star turned fragrance alchemist related that clear quartz, citrine, and rose Quartz were the crystals that inspired her 3 offering fragrance line. These 3 stones are associated with raising vibration, acting as bottled sunshine, and manifesting loving and nurturing energy respectively. Kim kardashian didn’t elaborate that these were the exact healing crystals that she received from friends and family - but simply mentioned she was inspired by them. If you want to follow the trendsetting Kardashian, pick up these gorgeous crystals and benefit from their healing and soothing vibrations.
Of course crystals are no substitute for therapy or medical care, but they may just help you remember to stay positive and engage in the positive habits that help you stay on the mindfulness plan discussed in therapy or pursuing the healthy habits outlined by a trained medical professional. Below at the 22 minute mark, you can hear Kim talk about her crystals and how they inspired her fragrance collection as she shares a conversation with model Ashley Graham on Ashley's podcast "Pretty Big Deal".
