Holly Willoughby has recently launched a brand new project which is inspired by the moon and all things spiritual.

The 41 year old presenter already has her hands full with This Morning duties, and is also a mum of three, but Holly's new side-hustle has shown a different side to the busy star, championing meditation and various other mindfulness techniques.

Called Wylde Moon, the new project is described as an online space which champions women, nourishes the soul and explores crystal energies.

This new-found love of spirituality actually came to the blonde beauty during her time in Australia as she presented the 2019 series of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

On her new website, Holly reveals that her time spent away from family gave her a chance to rediscover herself as she "started to unlock pieces of herself" upon her return to the UK.

The star has penned a message on the site, saying: "Australia is the land of alternative therapies, and the town that I was in truly had all kinds of things for all kinds of people.

"Through this wonderful kinesiologist called Josie, I really started to unlock pieces of myself and when I came back to England, I knew that I didn’t want to stop everything I’d learnt."

Holly went on to explain her love of meditation, saying it's now a huge part of her routine, and also championed the more alternative sound baths.

The star continued: "The most important pillars of Wylde Moon are about having a true sense of self, igniting your intuition, knowing your self worth, nourishing your body and soul through music, food, laughter, sex, passion, beautiful things or all of the above.

"I think it’s important that we pick those beautiful things carefully, whether they’re for your home or your body. And that’s not something we should feel guilty about either, because we all love different things."

She concluded: "Some of them are meaningful and some of them are utterly frivolous, but they all have their place.”

Here we take a look into Holly's love of spirituality and how she implements elements into her daily routine.

Regular meditation

Holly has always been open about her love of meditation, and has shared multiple posts prior to Wylde Moon's launch about it.

A few months ago in July, the star posted a selfie, writing alongside it: "Morning meditation complete and breathing in the possibility of a new day…

"See you on the @bbctheoneshow tonight at 7pm."

She confirmed on her new site that it is still very much a big part of her life, writing: "I have things in my own hypothetical toolkit, like meditation and sound baths, that really work for me.”

Sound bath sessions

Holly explained on the Wylde Moon website that she is a fan of sound baths, but what are they?

Although not exactly a new treatment, the meditative experience is one that's gained mainstream popularity over the past few years and there are hundreds of centres who provide it across the UK.

Those not in the know might wrongly assume it simply means having a bath with some music on, but a meditative sound bath is far from that, and involves those taking part being "bathed" in sound waves.

These waves are produced by various sources, including healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks, and sometimes human voices.

Sessions generally tend to last between 15 and 60 minutes, and is guided by a sound healing practitioner as the person taking part will lie on their backs for its duration.

Healing and purifying with crystals

Earlier this year Holly shared how she uses crystals for healing, purifying her home, and even to reduce her son's nightmares.

She told This Morning viewers that they had been the solution to her six year old son Chester's bad dreams.

She said: "Chester sleeps with a bit of green fluorite and the last four nights it's disappeared down the back of his bed and he's had nightmares the last four nights.

"So I pulled the bed out and got it, last night he slept through fine.

"I know there's no science to this but that is something you go, well, if that helps, it helps.”

Back in October 2020, Holly shared her "morning ritual" on Instagram, showing how she'd placed a tealight and a crystal on her kitchen counter, while white sage incense burned alongside it in a copper pot.

"Morning rituals… #whitesage for purification not inhalation before you ask!" she wrote.

In June 2021, Holly posted another snap which showed that her love of crystals hadn't dimmed, as she took a selfie whilst holding one, captioning the image: "High vibrations…"
