Keep a crystal by your bed to improve air quality

AccordingKeep a crystal by your bed to improve air quality to energy healers, crystals have their own energy fields and vibrations which can counteract the positive ions from computers and mobile phones which are bad for us, thus helping to neutralize our environment.

Healing experts believe that crystals are made up of negative ions that help counteract the effects of potentially harmful particles in our environment.

Healer Anne Jones, author of Healing Negative Energies, believes that placing an amethyst or clear quartz on top of your computer or by your bed improves the quality of the air.

‘Crystals with high vibrational energies containing negative ions can counteract the effects of low vibrational energy – the type of energy sent out from computers and mobile phones,’ she says.

‘By sending out high vibrations, crystals can boost low vibrational energy and bring the whole energy field into balance.’

Attrracting Prosperity with Green Gemstone Energy

Attrracting Prosperity with Green Gemstone Energy

Green gemstones are said to manifest bothvitality and prosperity in your life.

Green is naturally associated with abundance as it is the colour of life, bringing to mind lush green forests and rolling fields. Nature’s vitality brings associations of health, abundant blessings, and well-being. In colour theory, being surrounded by the colour green is said to be supportive to the physical body and inspires feelings of healing and renewal.

Each green gemstone has distinct properties that assist in manifesting specific aspects of abundance. The following are just a few examples of these uniquely specialized properties:

Green Tourmaline Clears Blocks to Attract Success

Green Tourmaline is said to help heal auras and clear away blockages, as well as attract money and success. It has a dense, grounded vibration, making it a great stone to work with to connect to the physical and material world. Tourmaline is unique in that it contains a piezoelectrical charge, a type of electricity that is activated in certain crystalline substances, thus also making it great for working with the mind-body connection.

Jade for Better Business Dealings

In addition to drawing money, jade strengthens mental functions, reasoning ability, and wisdom, so it’s a terrific stone to use for business dealings. It is also symbolic of successful love, if an abundance of love is on your list! It helps you release anxiety and fear-based emotions and brings dreams into reality, as well as luck, longevity, and spiritual self-realization.

Take Charge with Alexandrite

Alexandrite has a very unique colour that actually appears to shift from shades of green to shades of red when held up to artificial light. This changeability associates it with changes of fortune. If you are ready to take bold action, alexandrite is said to help you win your desired outcome.

Enhance Career with Emerald

The prosperity emerald brings is not limited to material wealth, but also spiritual and creative riches. It especially benefits career, as it promotes group harmony in work situations as well as helps overcome challenges. It motivates action and truth, and brings a sense of security in personal and work relationships. It is also associated with an abundance of healing, faithfulness, and love.

Green Gemstone Meditation for Prosperity and Abundance:

After having cleaned and charged the gemstone of your choice, hold it in your hands and enter a meditative state.Ask fordivine assistance. Imagine any and all blocks towards achieving abundance being swept away. When they are gone, a brand new space opens. Visualise this space being filled with a beautiful green light. This light is filled with the energy of the specific type of abundance you want to attract.

Later on, carry the stone with you, or put in a special place, such as a home altar. Every time you see or hold it, you are reminded that you are filled with abundance always and you have everything you need.

What is Crystal Divination?

What is Crystal Divination?Women have incorporated crystals into their folk magic over many centuries. Especially in countries such as Denmark, Scandinavia, Germany and the UK who were influenced by Anglo-Saxon customs, women have long used clear quartz for their spindle-whorls, thus channelling the power of the sun and the moon. When spinning, the spindle would catch the light and infuse the spinning threads with beautiful rainbows, and this was powerful magic when spells and incantations were chanted too! This was a common practice right up until medieval times and was said to enhance health, give energy and help the recipient find their life purpose.

These spindle whorls were also sometimes made from amber and jet, amber being linked to Freyja, the Viking Goddess of Love, Beauty and Fertility. The garment wearer is said to hve been endowed with radiance, beauty, and sexual confidence. Jet was regarded as giving powerful protection, and was said to be used by sailors. Crystals have been used in divination, that is, seeking answers, in many traditions, and were collected from sacred places where earth energies are at their most powerful. Because they contain living energies, they can subtly transmit impressions via the fingertips of those working with them, and these impressions, in turn, can enhance visual imagery and clairvoyance. Our ancestors were familiar with this practice and would be gifted in interpreting wisdom simply from the glint of a crystal. They were, in fact, tapping into what is known as psychokinesis (or telekinesis), the power of the unconscious mind which draws on ancient ancestral wisdom and, in turn, “speaks” through the crystal to the practitioner. So how you do crystal divination is this: Firstly, place about ten crystals in a bag made from natural fabrics if possible. Ask a question about an issue which needs clarification. Choose a crystal from the bag, just allow your hand to be guided to the right one. Allow sensations, eg hot, cold etc, to infuse your hands, then close your eyes and try to open up to any visual images that come up. You don’t have to be clairvoyant to do this, we all have intuitive ability if we open up to it. You may even find with practice that you start hearing music, words or other sounds with your inner ear, as all our senses are connected.

If your problem is a deep or complex one, you could use more than one crystal, working with each one in turn. The colour of the crystal is important too, which I will explain next month. There are, of course, many many more crystals than this. Try to find a good supplier who will allow you to handle the stones and feel their energies. You will find a storehouse of wisdom at your fingertips!

Predicting the Future With Crystals

Predicting the Future With CrystalsForetelling future events through the use of jewels and crystals is technically known as ‘lithomancy’, a form of scrying and is one of the oldest forms of psychicprediction.

Natural crystals and gemstones were used for the purpose of prediction by most ancient civilisations including the Eygptians, the Aztecs and the Incas.

As well as their use in scrying they are also still used in meditation, heightening psychic intuition and in healing rituals.

Some astrologers believe that each sign of the zodiac is attached to a specific natural crystal; more commonly known as birthstones.

The following is a list of natural crystals and the astrological sun sign associated with it:

Aries:Diamond, ruby, red jasper
Taurus: Sapphire, lapis luazuli
Gemini: Citrine, yellow agate
Cancer:Pearl, moonstone
Leo:Tiger’s eye, dendritic agate
Virgo:Green jasper, sardonyx
Libra:Sapphire, aquamarine
Scorpio: Ruby, opal, red jasper
Sagittarius: Topaz
Capricorn:Turquoise, smoky quartz
Aquarius:Amethyst
Pisces: Moonstone, rose quartz

Specific crystals have specific predicitive or healing qualities. So if a person wears or carries a certain crystal, he or she will be assisted by the crystal’s power. For example, to increase psychic ability, it’s suggested that a diamond or peridot be worn or carried. A bronze or sapphire crystal will help in channelling. And a Herkimer diamond or fire opal should be worn or carried to enhance clairaudience.

Attrracting Prosperity with Green Gemstone Energy

Attrracting Prosperity with Green Gemstone Energy

Green gemstones are said to manifest bothvitality and prosperity in your life.

Green is naturally associated with abundance as it is the colour of life, bringing to mind lush green forests and rolling fields. Nature’s vitality brings associations of health, abundant blessings, and well-being. In colour theory, being surrounded by the colour green is said to be supportive to the physical body and inspires feelings of healing and renewal.

Each green gemstone has distinct properties that assist in manifesting specific aspects of abundance. The following are just a few examples of these uniquely specialized properties:

Green Tourmaline Clears Blocks to Attract Success

Green Tourmaline is said to help heal auras and clear away blockages, as well as attract money and success. It has a dense, grounded vibration, making it a great stone to work with to connect to the physical and material world. Tourmaline is unique in that it contains a piezoelectrical charge, a type of electricity that is activated in certain crystalline substances, thus also making it great for working with the mind-body connection.

Jade for Better Business Dealings

In addition to drawing money, jade strengthens mental functions, reasoning ability, and wisdom, so it’s a terrific stone to use for business dealings. It is also symbolic of successful love, if an abundance of love is on your list! It helps you release anxiety and fear-based emotions and brings dreams into reality, as well as luck, longevity, and spiritual self-realization.

Take Charge with Alexandrite

Alexandrite has a very unique colour that actually appears to shift from shades of green to shades of red when held up to artificial light. This changeability associates it with changes of fortune. If you are ready to take bold action, alexandrite is said to help you win your desired outcome.

Enhance Career with Emerald

The prosperity emerald brings is not limited to material wealth, but also spiritual and creative riches. It especially benefits career, as it promotes group harmony in work situations as well as helps overcome challenges. It motivates action and truth, and brings a sense of security in personal and work relationships. It is also associated with an abundance of healing, faithfulness, and love.

Green Gemstone Meditation for Prosperity and Abundance:

After having cleaned and charged the gemstone of your choice, hold it in your hands and enter a meditative state.Ask fordivine assistance. Imagine any and all blocks towards achieving abundance being swept away. When they are gone, a brand new space opens. Visualise this space being filled with a beautiful green light. This light is filled with the energy of the specific type of abundance you want to attract.

Later on, carry the stone with you, or put in a special place, such as a home altar. Every time you see or hold it, you are reminded that you are filled with abundance always and you have everything you need.

What is Crystal Divination?

What is Crystal Divination?Women have incorporated crystals into their folk magic over many centuries. Especially in countries such as Denmark, Scandinavia, Germany and the UK who were influenced by Anglo-Saxon customs, women have long used clear quartz for their spindle-whorls, thus channelling the power of the sun and the moon. When spinning, the spindle would catch the light and infuse the spinning threads with beautiful rainbows, and this was powerful magic when spells and incantations were chanted too! This was a common practice right up until medieval times and was said to enhance health, give energy and help the recipient find their life purpose.

These spindle whorls were also sometimes made from amber and jet, amber being linked to Freyja, the Viking Goddess of Love, Beauty and Fertility. The garment wearer is said to hve been endowed with radiance, beauty, and sexual confidence. Jet was regarded as giving powerful protection, and was said to be used by sailors. Crystals have been used in divination, that is, seeking answers, in many traditions, and were collected from sacred places where earth energies are at their most powerful. Because they contain living energies, they can subtly transmit impressions via the fingertips of those working with them, and these impressions, in turn, can enhance visual imagery and clairvoyance. Our ancestors were familiar with this practice and would be gifted in interpreting wisdom simply from the glint of a crystal. They were, in fact, tapping into what is known as psychokinesis (or telekinesis), the power of the unconscious mind which draws on ancient ancestral wisdom and, in turn, “speaks” through the crystal to the practitioner. So how you do crystal divination is this: Firstly, place about ten crystals in a bag made from natural fabrics if possible. Ask a question about an issue which needs clarification. Choose a crystal from the bag, just allow your hand to be guided to the right one. Allow sensations, eg hot, cold etc, to infuse your hands, then close your eyes and try to open up to any visual images that come up. You don’t have to be clairvoyant to do this, we all have intuitive ability if we open up to it. You may even find with practice that you start hearing music, words or other sounds with your inner ear, as all our senses are connected.

If your problem is a deep or complex one, you could use more than one crystal, working with each one in turn. The colour of the crystal is important too, which I will explain next month. There are, of course, many many more crystals than this. Try to find a good supplier who will allow you to handle the stones and feel their energies. You will find a storehouse of wisdom at your fingertips!

Predicting the Future With Crystals

Predicting the Future With CrystalsForetelling future events through the use of jewels and crystals is technically known as ‘lithomancy’, a form of scrying and is one of the oldest forms of psychicprediction.

Natural crystals and gemstones were used for the purpose of prediction by most ancient civilisations including the Eygptians, the Aztecs and the Incas.

As well as their use in scrying they are also still used in meditation, heightening psychic intuition and in healing rituals.

Some astrologers believe that each sign of the zodiac is attached to a specific natural crystal; more commonly known as birthstones.

The following is a list of natural crystals and the astrological sun sign associated with it:

Aries:Diamond, ruby, red jasper
Taurus: Sapphire, lapis luazuli
Gemini: Citrine, yellow agate
Cancer:Pearl, moonstone
Leo:Tiger’s eye, dendritic agate
Virgo:Green jasper, sardonyx
Libra:Sapphire, aquamarine
Scorpio: Ruby, opal, red jasper
Sagittarius: Topaz
Capricorn:Turquoise, smoky quartz
Aquarius:Amethyst
Pisces: Moonstone, rose quartz

Specific crystals have specific predicitive or healing qualities. So if a person wears or carries a certain crystal, he or she will be assisted by the crystal’s power. For example, to increase psychic ability, it’s suggested that a diamond or peridot be worn or carried. A bronze or sapphire crystal will help in channelling. And a Herkimer diamond or fire opal should be worn or carried to enhance clairaudience.
