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.

I have great faith in the emotional healing power of plants, their oils and how they can have a powerful effect on your well-being. The amazing healing properties of flowers, in particular, can be used to activate our body’s energy centers, otherwise known as the chakras.
Known as Muladhara, you will find this particular chakra at your spine’s base. Consider it, if you would, the very plug that connects you to the life force of the Earth herself and assists you to remain grounded. When this chakra is in balance, you should feel secure and stable. Should it become imbalanced, however, you may feel somewhat stuck (or lost) in life and find yourself focusing on subjects that do not serve your greatest interests. Read the rest of this entry »

Chakra theory originates from Hindu mysticism. There are seven main chakras (there are others too) in the body. Chakras are also known as energy vortices. Each chakra is associated with a different color, as well as various physical, emotional and spiritual issues. Reiki is an example of a metaphysical system of energy work that uses the chakra system as the focus of intent.
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine where the coccyx is located. It is associated with the color red and our feelings of stability and how we relate to the physical world. Some of the issues related to this energy vortex are problems finding housing or work, or an inability or unwillingness to take control of our lives. Problems with this chakra may also show up as an inability to create organization when dealing with tasks and jobs. Read the rest of this entry »
These stones are said to bring good luck to those possessing them. They also block negativity and negative energy. Black obsidian is a powerful meditation stone. Apache tears brings any dysfunctions, sadness, depression and anger to the surface. It brings up anything blocking you and helps you remove those blocks to help create the life you want. It is the stone of the subconscious and it dissolves suppressed negative patterns and purifies them. This stone brings to light that which is hidden from the conscious mind. If you feel you are being used or abused, or someone has power over you, this is a great stone to wear when around that person. It will help block their negative hold on you, and empower you.

We are very affected by the colors in our homes, work environment and by the colors of food we eat and the colors we wear. Color permeates our very existence.
In Kundalini yoga, it is the tradition that teachers wear white outfits made of natural fibers, with a white covering over their heads. Just like the color white deflects the sun and black absorbs it, white also deflects negativity and the color black attracts and absorbs it.
Teaching Kundalini can attract students who are very evolved, and also many who are really struggling and sometimes even emotionally unstable. Wearing white can protect a teacher from the negative energy that may emanate from a person in class and is sometimes directed toward, or projected onto the teacher. Read the rest of this entry »
Part of spiritual parenting is understanding your child’s generation. This is not “The Wonder Years”. The harsh reality is that even if you are protecting your child’s innocence, chances are their friend’s parents aren’t. These days we do need to ask the parents of our child’s friend if there is unsupervised time on the computer, and is there potential access to pornography, or even guns in the home. We need to go online and see if there are any predators in that home, or in the neighborhood. We need to know that there aren’t any drugs or alcohol in the home.
I have been working with children for 30 years and times have certainly changed. Today’s generation of parents cannot afford to be distracted, detached and oblivious. Modern parents text and talk on the phone more than they look at or communicate with their own children. I often hear people talk about how this generation of children seem tuned out, detached and lack imagination and creativity, but how can we ask them to tune in when their parents are not? They learn their coping and survival skills from us. If we tune out, so will they. Read the rest of this entry »
The power of crystals are due to their resonant energy. Resonant energy is the vibrational quality of the things around us. Everything carries an energy signature, and the reason why crystals are quite popular in metaphysical practices is because the energy these crystals resonate is often at a higher frequency compared to other tools and esoteric objects. This is due to their unique matrixes and the minerals within each crystal.
Using crystals for energy healing is quite simple. You can carry the crystals around with you, wear them as jewelry, and also use them in your spiritual practices such as meditation. The best way to use the crystals is to set your intention, and then visualize the energy coming into alignment through the aid of the crystal. Read the rest of this entry »
