You don’t have to be a geologist or gemstone expert to experience the magic of working with crystals and gemstones. Many of us light up when you mention the magic of crystals and gemstones, and we usually have a story to share about a particular stone we own or carry on us for specific intentions, healing, added strength, or protection.
How do the crystals and gemstones work for you? Well, in many magical ways. When you’re drawn to a particular stone, whether it’s the color, texture, shape, or other qualities, the attraction you feel to it is the first stage in the magical process. This attraction is actually the stone’s way of calling you to it, to make contact. Sometimes a stone can be gifted to you by someone, or one way or another just makes its way into your hands. The circumstances upon which you found it, or perhaps how it found you, is just the beginning of a new and magical relationship. Read the rest of this entry »
On March 12th there was a lovely full moon in Virgo and I was finally feeling relaxed enough to sit down and write this blog. So, I decided to write about how the Full Moon’s affects our daily lives.
The energies of the previous month were strong, and I felt work and situations piling up out of control, without time to deal with all of it. Yet, all the various projects I had going on came to fruition all at once, even those that were previously stalled, those I had almost given up on.
With the Sun moving into mystical Pisces, and a beautiful but rainy early Springtime, those dear projects finally finished or progressed into a new phase and I was once again able to calmly do my psychic work. Read the rest of this entry »
We are able to draw from their gifts and powers to help us on our path and during the most difficult times in our lives. All of the archangels are healers. They come as master surgeons to repair our bodies, and to help us tap into our higher selves. They are reminders that we are never alone.
The belief is that most of them have incarnated on Earth in the past, and they therefore understand the inner workings of Earth’s dimensions. Some angels have never incarnated on Earth, but feel an attachment to those of us in the human body and wish to help guide us. Read the rest of this entry »
Himalayan salt lamps naturally purify the air through ionization. Studies indicate that as much as a third of the world’s population reacts adversely to negative ions, and many people report that the air becomes easier to breathe when using a salt lamp.
Larger versions of these lamps, ideally hand-carved from the natural rock salt, are attractive and come in shades of red, amber, and cream. No two are alike! They weigh between 25 and 32 pounds and each will treat a space up to 320 square feet. Apart from the tabletop versions, did you know they are also available in a larger, half-dome size? Like their smaller versions, these lamps have multiple health benefits: relief from asthma and allergies, low energy, sleeplessness, and attention deficit. Read the rest of this entry »
Citrine is a variety of Quartz. It can be pale to golden yellow, to honey, even brown. It can also hold rainbows or sparkle inclusions. The name stems from the French word citron which is lemon. It was used as a gem in Ancient Greece, however most of the Citrine sold today is actually heat-treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz. Natural Citrine is pale yellow. Heat-treated Citrine and natural Citrine are said to have different uses and metaphysical properties.
It is traditionally known as The Merchant’s Stone, because it brings money to a cashbox. In fact, this is one reason I have come to like this stone. This is a stone of success, abundance, prosperity, and attraction of wealth. It also encourages generosity and sharing. It helps with acquiring fast money. We can carry it to bring money and to stop the extreme outpouring of money. Read the rest of this entry »
I remember when first I came into contact with Apache Tears, a kind of Obsidian, when I was just a child. I loved it! Its translucent quality was captivating. At the time I did not know the metaphysical properties of this stone; all I knew was that it had a dream-like quality to it.
Obsidian is molten lava that has cooled very quickly. It is a type of volcanic glass and it is found worldwide. The ancient Aztecs made flat mirrors from Obsidian for use in divination. Obsidian may open a person to the gift of prophecy. Legend has it that Dr. Dee, a great mage and alchemist, hired by Queen Elizabeth I, may have used an Obsidian mirror in lessons of scrying.

Since the time of the ancients, the use of salt (halos in Greek) was widespread for its healing properties. In our modern era, spending time in salt caves (speleos) are becoming popular as therapy. What can this accomplish for us?
Humankind evolved from the oceans; we have a natural connection to the sea and its properties. Since most of us are not in close proximity to the water, a salt cave in a landlocked area can offer a variety of healing properties. These caves are the remnants of inland seas from millions of years ago.
Salt caves, as individual micro-climates, are balanced chemically and harbor few, if any, allergens. This offers an ideal environment to recuperate for persons suffering from chronic allergies, respiratory ailments, or bronchitis. Think about the properties of a simple salt lamp, then imagine being surrounded by a large room of one of nature’s most beneficial substances. Read the rest of this entry »
