This past Earth Day I offered a special “Healing Crystals Dancing Dolphin Retreat” to celebrate Earth Day, off the coast of Key West, FL with my friend Capt. Victoria of Dancing Dolphin Spirit Charters.
Six women joined us in ceremony for Earth Healing. Together we created a Crystal Mandala energy grid in the sand of a uninhabited mangrove island using Earth healing crystals & gemstones. We offered prayers and blessings to the Earth and all its people.
One of the woman on our retreat, Gail Lima shared an Earth Day song she co-wrote along with her husband Franco Richmond and Faith Ainbinder Lang. Because Earth Day is really everyday, this is a song that can be sung for the Earth all year long.
The song was written for the Earth Summit in 1992 held in Brazil. Gail & Franco created musical bells made out of recycled aluminum, called Wow Earth Bells to accompany the song. >> Continue reading
Have you ever wondered which gemstone or crystal is right for you? It doesn’t matter if you are new to stones or have been collecting crystals for many years. This question always comes up. How do I know which stone to use in this particular situation? Let this question be a start to the discovery of the amazing and versatile world of Clear Quartz Crystals.
What makes a clear Quartz so special? Because it is clear, it contains all the colors of the rainbow. Quartz Crystals contain within them the full spectrum of light. They can be used like any other stone. There are so many beautiful, colorful gemstones with their vibrant colors, unusual structures , unique forms and inherit energy properties that we often forget to reach for the Quartz Crystal.
This clear stone can energetically act like any of the color stones. >> Continue reading
Have you ever taken a bath with a crystal or gemstone?
It might sound strange at first to think about putting stones in your bath tub, this is just one more way of receiving the healing benefits that gemstones can offer us.
What do you look forward to after a long stressful day at work? Coming home and taking a long, hot bath, right? We all know that soaking in a tub after a hard day helps to melt away the stress, so adding soothing, calming stones like Lepidolite, Larimar, or Kunzite to your bath water will help calm and relax you after the day from “hell”.
Here is my favorite recipe for a relaxing bath:
- Place a piece of Lepidolite into the tub allowing the water to run over it as the tub fills. If you have more than one piece you can add them too.
How can a stone be called “a medicine of the 21st century” Well, I wondered that myself.
I’d been hearing about a new stone coming out of Russia for a few months before my last buying trip. So of course it was on my shopping list. A google search brought me to web sites declaring its miraculous healing abilities. How could they be making these blatant claims I wondered?
Russian scientist have investigated this rock Shungite for several decades and report that it restores health and vitality. It is said to relieve headaches, backaches, arthritis, relieve pain, normalize sleep, stabilize blood pressure, clear respiratory tract, and increase energy.
Upon further investigation I found out that Shungite is a Precambrian rock of metamorphosed coal. It is made up of 98% carbon. Shungite is found in only one area of Russia, Karelia. Scientists estimate that the age of Shungite is about two million years. >> Continue reading
Place a clear quartz crystal into a glass or bowl. Fill the container with pure fresh water. You can use any size glass or bowl depending on how much drinking water you would like to make. It’s best to use a glass or ceramic container. Do not use metal or plastic for your container. Any size quartz crystal will do. It is best to use a natural crystal point if you have one.
Place the glass container with the crystal in it where it will receive the light of the full moon. Let it sit out all night. If you can’t put the container outdoors, just place it by a window where it will receive the glow of the moon. >> Continue reading
I stopped making New Year’s resolutions years ago. They just don’t work well for me. We begin the New Year filled with hope and make resolutions we know we won’t or can’t keep. New Years resolutions have always felt more like an empty wish than setting a true goal or intention.
What I love to do however are New Year Rituals. There is such power in a ritual, creating a sacred space filled with symbolism and intention.
A ritual can be as simple as stopping for a moment of silence and prayer before we eat our food. Or taking a moment to light a candle and offer out a blessing to someone we love. Or sending out gratitude to the new day as the sun rises to greet us each morning. Some rituals are steeped in spiritual tradition, carried out by many who came before us. >> Continue reading
Here are some really interesting stones! Ventifactos, also known as Bell Stones are from Argentina. They are a recent discovery made by one of my long time Crystal Dealers, who personally hand picks these unique forms of Basalt. These black stones are naturally sculpted by the wind and sand. They are volcanic Basalt, containing, Iron, Nickle and Titanium. Each one is uniquely shaped.
During my recent buying trip to the Denver Gem Show, I popped into Seann’s room to discover these exciting new stones. I was immediately intrigued by these unusual black stones. As Seann explained to me where and how these volcanic stones are found, I became even more interested in them. Then he picked up a pair and struck them together. When hit together they make a clean, deep tone, that resonated all throughout my body. This sound is described as primeval music which naturally supports healing energy and brings all the chakras into balance. >> Continue reading
This year’s Denver Gem Show was another fabulous year, with all of the same dealers and several new ones to explore. I found some great new stones this year, which always makes the show worth going to. I never know just what l’ll find or what will entice me. This year was no exception in fine quality crystals, gemstones, minerals, beads and jewelry. I came home with boxes and boxes of glorious new treasures from Mother Earth.
It takes days and days to unpack all the new stones. This year I set up several tables outdoors on my deck and laid out and unpacked all the goodies. The stones enjoy being outside in the sunlight, and so do I. It’s a slow process, sorting, organizing, pricing and admiring these natural beauties. So many of the new stones are from countries all around the world. >> Continue reading
