THE glow OF
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.

Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, is a woman to admire in so many ways. For starters, she went from being a pop star in a girl group to becoming, through her own taste and execution, one of the most respected fashion designers in the modern day. She also balances this with being a mom and the wife of one of the most well recognized and decorated football players in the world. She's nothing short of a force of nature, and one has to wonder - what is her secret? How does she stay on the ball in her business, constantly creative, witty beyond measure, always chic and ravishing looking, AND so very likable....
I don't pretend to know all of her secrets, but I do know that Vic is quite keen on at least one holistic wellness treatment that I myself am a huge fan of....that's right kids, our very own Victoria Beckham is a fan of drinking Full Moon water.
I almost fell out of my chair when I found out as well, and was super pumped to hear that Victoria Beckham was in touch with her inner spirituality and on board with the energetic effects of drinking water that has been bottled under the Full Moon. Too cool! Apparently, VB learned of this powerful and potent beverage while staying at a German health and wellness clinic for some rest and relaxation. She now considers herself a fan of the regimen when she needs a reset and detox moment.
According to the website of the bottling company which harvests and bottles the water, "the biophysical quality of the water changes in line with the moon phase" but also makes mention that any differences in water quality have not been proven by modern medical science. A disclaimer that has to accompany said bottled water because it is being served at a health clinic, where very real medical advice is being administered.
As with all things, use your own discretion regarding if something feels powerful for you or not. Much of the metaphysical and holistic comes down to using tools, rituals, and techniques to align our minds and hearts to a desired outcome. It is all just a set of tools to get out of your own way - because we all have more power than we know!
In the spirit of providing a sneak peek into some of what you'll find in my book Inner Glow Up, and in the Inner Glow Up Masterclass content; I have created a short 21 Day email course for you to follow along. Each day, your inbox will be hashtag blessed with a new volume, a daily digest featuring one thing you can do to raise your vibration. Each of these tips are part of my personal arsenal of self-care, mindfulness, and personal management tools and have been tried and tested by me.
I hope that you will find value in following along with my short course that teaches you ways to master daily mindfulness practices that can help you fight stress, and release negativity. Each day has an accompanying video that explains the how and why of what we are doing. I wanted each course participant to understand exactly how what you're being tasked to do can really contribute to your overall well being and raise your vibration.
This course is of value to you if you've ever wondered how to manage your vibration on a daily basis. I dig into how it is not enough to simply clean your energy every day. People often get it all wrong and assume that you go throughout life with a positive vibration, and then that vibration gets a bit mucky and so the next thing you do is completely hit reset on your vibration. The truth of the matter is that vibration is a spectrum, and its best for you AND YOUR ENERGY if you instead raise your vibration from where you sit rather than simply clean sweeping out your energetic balance.
You're probably wondering what the difference is? In my experience, it isn't practical to continue energy management by doing a full clean sweep. In daily life, it more so often happens that we have to manage and raise our vibration where we are - through a series of steps and techniques. That is where mindfulness comes in. It's very simple to be mindful and focused on your highest vibration and universal bliss and joy when you are deep in meditation and perfectly comfortable at home. It's a much more challenging feat to stay in a high vibration when you're power walking through Whole Foods to pick up lunch midday and your heel snaps off at the base like its made of those thin little breadsticks they serve at all of the family Italian restaurants that are supposed to look heritage and family owned so they have pre-threadbare worn tablecloths trucked in and purposefully crooked wall to ceiling picture frames full of images of Positano in the early 60's, but are actually only 2 year old establishments with names that translate to "Whisper" and "Naptime" in Italian. (A specific example, but I can totally sense we are riding the same wave here.)
I digress, I really wanted to create something that was a Swiss Army knife of sorts...for energetic and vibration management. Why? Because truly great things come to you when you are aligned and in the flow and in your highest vibration. Not just the tangible things, but also come of your greatest breakthroughs and downloads of divinely guided actions and steps to take can come through when you're operating from that place of enlightenment and connection. I hope you'll enjoy all 21 Days of high vibrational goodness, and then after that you'll be in a really good space to begin reading the book. Available on Amazon on January 1st, 2020.
