How to use Crystals & Gemstones to Communicate with the Angels

 

Angel Earrings with Seraphinite

Different Crystals and Gemstones can help us to facilitate our communication with the Angelic Realm. Some of the Angel gemstones like Serpahinite, Selenite, Celestite, Charoite, Angelite, and Danburite can assist us in contacting the angels.

Angel stones can act as physical representations of the energies of the Angelic Realm. Certain stones have vibrations that closely match the angels and can be used as a gateway or bridge so that we can more easily enter into the world of angels. Stones can help us to open our inner vision to perceive the angels. Think of them as the Angel energy in form. Angel stones can be used to attract the angels into your life. Not because the angels need to be attracted in, they are always present, but because we may not be present to them. These stones open us to the angels. The Angels are just waiting for the invite in. Having these stones around you or on your body bridges our 3 dimensional world to the Angelic world.

Angel stones can help you increase your sensitivity to communicating with the angels. Angels are always communicating with us, we just are not always aware of it. Working with Angel stones will make it easier hear them.

The gemstones can help you increase or “turn up the volume” so you can hear the messages more clearly. Gemstones are tools that assist us in becoming more intuitive, help us get open to hearing the angels messages.

Selenite-There is much to be said about this stone Selenite. It is a wonderful stone for many many purposes. It has an intense, high vibration that can open our upper chakras, especially the crown chakra. Once our crown chakra is opened we can then move into higher realms and move through the door into the angelic world. It is also a stone that can melt away or dissolve negative energy or any blockages. It is a purifying and cleansing stone. This would be a great stone to use if you are having difficulty hearing the messages you angels are trying to send to you as it acts to melt away anything that stands in your way from perceiving the angels. Sometimes this stone can feel too intense at first and a more gentler angel stone may want to be tried first. But once you are in tune with its frequencies it does become a powerful allay.

Selenite Egg

Seraphinite- is a stone to call on when you need healing from the angels as it contains chlorite a healing mineral. It can bring wholeness back to the body or situation leaving you with a feeling of well being. Seraphinite can help you to remain conscious and still connect to the angels, example, while driving the car or walking down the trail you can strike up a conversation or feel the angels presence not just during a mediation or in dreams. It helps you feel connected to the angels during your every day activities. This beautiful green stone with this white frosting like marks is found in Russia in Siberia. It gets its name from the angel Seraphim. Look for the silver angel wings within the stone.

Seraphinite- "the Angel of Healing Stone"

Contacting the angels will leave you feeling great, with a sense of well being a rush of love and joy. Being with the angels will leave you feeling uplifted, and connected to your true spirit.

Moldavite- ” The Stone That Fell From The Sky”

Of all the different gemstones I have worked with over the past 20 years, Moldavite is the one that has shown me the most dramatic responses from those who hold it. I have witness many first time encounters with Moldavite. What I have noticed when someone is new to the energies of Moldavite is a strong reaction to the stone. Sometimes to the point of the person throwing the stone down as if they can no longer be near its vibration. Sometimes the opposite happens and a person can not let go of the stone because it feels so good, so familiar. Rarely is there no response from Moldavite. One of the more common responses from someone who holds Moldavite for the first time is the experience of warmth or heat, usually felt in the hand then felt throughout the body like a wave. I have seen people become lightheaded and even dizzy while holding Moldavite. Some people have to accustom themselves to the energies of Moldavite, gradually wearing the gemstone, to come to fully appreciate its energy. Moldavite is truly a high vibrational stone.

Moldavite is a tektite found in the Czech Republic. Its often called “the stone that fell from the sky”. There are three theories of how it was formed. One theory suggests that Moldavite is made from an earthly rock melted by the heat of a meteorite crash. Another theory suggests that Moldavite is from extraterrestrial origin, like obsidian ejected by a lunar volcano. A third theory suggests that Moldative is a fusion of meteorite material and rock from the earth that was vaporized in tremendous heat from the impact of the meteor. The heat of the explosion resulted in gas being propelled high into the atmosphere. This gas would have cooled and condensed into a liquid glass, resulting in Moldavite. Regardless of which theory is correct, the fact is that Moldavite was created from tremendous power and did fall from the sky. Moldavite is one of the few tektites that is of gem quality and able to be cut and faceted into beautiful jewelry. To see more Moldavite Jewelry, click here to go to my web site.

Moldavite is a gemstone for transformation on all levels. It can be seen as a catalyst for shifts in one’s life, physical, emotional, or spiritual. It can open and activate all the chakras allowing for powerful activations. It has strong relationship to the heart Chakra. Moldavite is a stone that can help move you forward on your spiritual path to awakening. It can assist one to fully awaken to their highest destiny. Moldavite is a powerful tool for meditation and dreamwork.

If you stuck in a rut, can’t make the changes you know are good for you, or just aren’t sure whats next, Moldavite can assist in moving you into the next highest place. Its a powerful allay for these changing times.

Falling In Love With Rose Quartz- A Heart Chakra Meditation

 Over the past several weeks I immersed  myself in heart chakra stones. I wanted to put together a collection of Heart Chakra jewerly as part of my Valentine’s day jewelry sale. I took out all of my pink gemstone beads and began designing Heart opening necklaces.  The more I work with Rose Quartz the more I fall in love with this stone all over again.   All pink and green stones are Heart Chakra stones. There are many pink and green gemstones in the mineral kingdom and I have a vast collection of  these heart stones.  It is easy to over look the lovely soft Rose Quartz.  As I worked with Rose Quartz I began to connect once again to its amazing energies.
While the vibration of Rose Quartz is soft and gentle, it is also very powerful.  This stone reminds us that love begins with ourselves. Rose Quartz is all about self love and self nurturing.
Meditating with rose quartz can help to release emotional wounds that hold our hearts closed. Its softness allows us to slowly and delicately look at the hurts we experience and one by one let it go and open back to love. Meditating with Rose Quartz gives us the opportunity to be surrounded in love energy. Here is a short meditation using the Gemstone Rose Quartz.
While laying down, place a Rose Quartz on your Heart Chakra.  Close your eyes and breath slowly and deeply, quieting the mind.  Begin to feel the vibration of the Rose Quartz on your Heart Chakra. Visualize the color pink.  Begin at your feet and slowly move the soft pink color up and over your body until your whole body is bathed in the loving, compassionate and peaceful energy that is Rose Quartz.  Allow yourself several minutes to be in this calm and loving space. When you feel ready place both your hands over the stone as it sits on your Heart Chakra and once again become aware of your breath. With each in breath, breathe in the loving energy of the Rose Quartz, with each out breath, breathe out hurt, fear, worry or any other emotion that is blocking your heart.  Do this several times until you begin to feel a peacefulness, a calm throughout your body.  You can say to yourself, I am love, I am loved, repeat several times.  When you feel ready, place your hands down by your sides and feel love, feel your heart warm and open to receive all the love that is here for you.  When you feel ready open your eyes and give yourself a great big hug.
Rose Quartz can help us open to receive love from ourselves and others.  Do you have difficulty being kind to yourself?  This is your stone.
This Valentine’s day fall in love with yourself. Let Rose Quartz remind you to do something just for you.

Garnet- Birthstone for January

Vibrant, rich, red. Those words describe January’s birthstone: Red Garnet. Garnets are found in many colors including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, pink and colorless. The rarest of these is the blue Garnet. The  Red Garnet is the most common and known as the birthstone for January as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. Garnets were used ever since the Bronze Age.  They were used in Ancient Egypt. They were also found in ancient Greece and Roman civilizations. Even today, Garnets are still a popular and much loved gemstone.
 
Garnets are known as a feminine energy stone.  Over my 20 plus years of selling stones, I have witnessed over and over the strong appeal Garnet holds for women.  Some women just seemed drawn to its feminine energies and find it difficult to wear any other stone but Garnet!
Garnet stimulates the Root Chakra and the Heart Chakra, making it a useful stone to bring your heartfelt desires into the world. Garnet is known as a manifestation stone because of this quality.
Garnet assists us in maintaining a sense of calm and grounded connection to the present moment. Who doesn’t need some assistance with staying calm and grounded these days?  Garnet is a useful stone for meditation as it does help us to stay present and in the moment.
Garnet is a stone that often represents physical love and the relationship between loving partners. (Think Valentine’s day) Garnet is an excellent stone to attract or invigorate a love relationship. Are you looking to attract a lover?  Keep some Garnet by your bed. Garnet is also used as a fertility stone and to increase sexual desires. Fertility here can also mean to help birth or create an idea into form.
Garnet is a stone which helps you to feel supportive and in balance. Garnet’s message is to trust in the infinite abundance of the universe
 
Garnet asks us: What are you wanting to bring into the world?
Garnet doesn’t have to be your birthstone to be enjoyed.  If you feel an attraction to this beautiful stone, enjoy its many qualities.
One of my favorite Garnet necklaces is this Spiral Garnet Goddess.  To me it sums up the true nature of this gemstone.

Using OM Jewelry To Renew A Spiritual Practice

OM pendant on Turquoise beads

 
As 2010 begins, it’s time to re-commit to our spiritual practices. For me that is Yoga and Meditation. I find it very helpful to use the OM symbol to remind me that I am renewing my connection to “the practice”
The ancient symbol OM holds an important significance for me and helps me acknowledge my practice. By wearing OM jewelry and OM pendants, I am reminded to stay in the present moment.  I remember to connect to my breath.  Wearing OM jewelry allows me to stop and reflect throughout the day. As I see the OM pendant around my neck, I pause, take in a deep breath and connect to the NOW. I use my OM necklaces as tools to support my inner spiritual practice. 
 
I enjoy making jewelry with the sacred OM symbol, combining OM pendants with healing gemstones that also assist to inspire a Yoga or Meditation practice.  I am always on the look out for unique and unusual OM pendants to add to my Yoga jewelry line. Creating these Yoga inspired jewelry pieces can be very meditative. My bead studio is a calming space, surrounded by natural objects, crystals, minerals, plants, flowers and many, many gemstone beads.  Putting together OM pendants with gemstone beads is a pleasurable part of my daily work.

OM Pendant on Amethyst & Quartz

OM is a universal, sacred symbol and the most sacred syllable in Hinduism. It is considered to be the primal sound. According to tradition, ancient sages were able to hear the subtle vibrations produced by everything in the universe, and they identified OM as the most elemental sound of creation. In a quiet environment, you can hear the vibration of OM in the crashing of ocean waves, in the stillness of a forest, or in the rush of wind. For more information on the significance of the symbol OM you can go to this article.
OM is used by meditators as a mantra to assist in reaching higher states of awareness. Many mantras and prayers begin and end with the sound OM. Rest in the universal sound of OM.

How To Choose Gemstones To Help Set Intention For The New Year

Quartz Crystal

The power of this New Years Eve full moon/blue moon, can help us to get clear and focus on what we want to bring into our lives for the New Year.  What a great opportunity we have this Thursday. 
Full moon is a great time to energetically clear and cleanse your crystals and gemstones.The energy of the moonlight washes away anything that is no longer needed. I like to leave my stones out all night and into the next day so they can be charged by the light of the sun. The day before the full moon and the day after are also acceptable times to cleanse your stones. You can place them directly on the ground or put them on a soft cloth and lay them on a table where the moonlight will shine brightly onto the stones.  Even if you live in a cold climate, you can place you stones by a window so that they will get flooded with the glowing white light of Grandmother moon.
I often find that after I have placed my crystals in the moonlight, they have a brighter glow to them, shining, radiating and ready to be of service. All color gemstones can be cleansed by the moon too.
 
On New Years day take the stones and sit with them.  Just sit, breathe and reflect. See yourself anew, with a fresh start. Now bring your attention on what you would like to bring in for the New Year.
If you are having trouble focusing on what intentions you’d like to set for 2010, check to see if you have Hematite or any black stone in your collection.  Stones like Hematite are grounding stones and they can help you to focus your thoughts and desires. When we are grounded we are able to focus our thoughts, desires, dreams and intentions. There is great power in our ability to create when we are focused. If you have set yourself a New Year’s resolution, but begin to feel it slipping past you, maybe you need to be more grounded and focused on your resolution/intention. Using the gemstone Hematite will offer you this grounding energy. When we’re not grounded we tend to be spacey, we can’t concentrate or focus attention for very long. One thought after another swirls in our mind. This will prevent us from creating the very thing we are wanting. Holding a Hematite stone will help you find the mental clarity and focus you need to achieve your desires. While holding the stone, begin to think of what it is you are wanting, continue to feel the stone in your hand and visualize what your desired outcome will be. Stay with this for 5-10 minutes, always coming back to the stone in your hand when your mind begins to stray. I find it helpful to write down the intention, using as much description as I can, getting clearer and clearer in my desire while holding the hematite. Connect to the emotion of the desire
 
Let 2010 be the year you focus on self awareness and well being.  While it’s nice to set intention on the outside world of needs and wants, its time to go deeper and look at our lifestyle choices.  Are you choosing a healthy life? Focus on setting intentions that will offer you well being.
 
Here are some gemstones that can help bring specific intentions into your life.
 
If you’d like to bring a Meditation practice into your life, work with Amethyst
 
Make 2010 your year of Healing, choose a green stone like Aventurine
 
To bring more Abundance into your life, choose Citirne
 
Need help with your Exercise program, choose orange Carnelian. This gemstone can energize and stimulate you to get moving.
 
Is this the year to start that creative project? Choose a blue stone like Lapis or Sodalite, they open up expression and creativity.
 
For bringing in Love, choose Rose Quartz or any pink stone, to keep the heart open to love.
 
Connect to your Soul, inner guides and the Divine, choose the clear stones, like Quartz, Selenite, Apophyllite or Nirvana Quartz.
 
So whatever it is you’d like to bring into your life this New Year, there is a gemstone that can assist you in setting your intention.   All things are possible.
 
The New Year is a wonderful time to have a Crystal Reading.  Take a look at what 2010 may bring. For more information on Crystal Readings or to learn more on how crystals can help you in your life,

Get Some Sleep With The Gemstone PETALITE

Petalite Stones

While the holidays can be a time of celebration and fun they can also be a time of exhaustion. Traveling, parties, “on- the- go” can lead to sleep deprivation. Do you need a good nights sleep?  
The stone I use to help me get to sleep and  for going back to sleep if I awake during the night is the beautiful, soft energy of Petalite. Because Petalite is a Lithium bearing mineral it offers a soft balanced energy. Petalite’s energy is one of rest and healing.  Petalite can take me to a space where worries and concerns melt away, so that I can easily drift off to sleep, worry free of the days events and tomorrows concerns. Petalite gives me a sense that all is right in the world.  With a calm mind I can move into a restful state and give my body the sleep it needs so that I can be energized and vibrant to embrace all that this season has to offer.
 
Sleep deprivation can have serious effects on your health in the form of physical and mental impairments. Inadequate rest impairs our ability to think, handle stress, maintain a healthy immune system and moderate our emotions. 
Without adequate rest, the brain’s ability to function quickly deteriorates. The brain works harder to counteract sleep deprivation effects, but operates less effectively: concentration levels drop, and memory becomes impaired. The brain’s ability to problem solve is greatly impaired. Decision-making abilities are compromised, and the brain falls into rigid thought patterns that make it difficult to generate new problem-solving ideas.
  • depression
  • heart disease
  • hypertension
  • irritability
  • slower reaction times
  • slurred speech
  • tremors.
Before you spend another restless night, try sleeping with a Petalite.  Its calming, worry-free energies may just be what you need for some deep restfulness.
 
Happy Holidays!

Tips For A Relaxing Holiday Season Using Crystals & Gemstones

Crystals & Gemstones For the Holidays

Crystals & Gemstones For the Holidays

During the holidays it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the parties, shopping and busy activities of the season. This year the best gift you can give your friends and loved ones is a healthy, relaxed YOU!  If you truly want to enjoy this special time of year, give yourself some self nurturing. 
Crystals and gemstones can help you stay calm, centered and focused during this stressful time of year.
Here are some ways to use Crystals & Gemstones to help you stay  in the holiday spirit of love, joy and happiness.
 
1. Stay focused.  We lose so much of our energy when we aren’t clear and focused on the project at hand.  Instead of multi-tasking, give yourself the joy of focused attention.  If you are having trouble staying focused, try using a Hematite or wear a Hematite necklace or bracelet.
Hematite is know as a grounding stone. Its also a stone to calm the mind. It can help us to sort things out and calm the racing mind. It helps with memory retention and is useful while writing. It also assists in dissolving negativity as it can transform the negative to a more pure state of love.
So, when you notice your mind racing around, reach for a Hematite and feel yourself grounded and focused.
 
2.  Ask for help.  Sometimes just simply letting others know you need assistance in all the preparations can relieve the pressure and feelings of doing too much.  If you are having trouble speaking up and asking for help, reach for a blue gemstone like Sodalite.  Sodalite can help you gently and calmly speak “your truth“, that is to come from you heart and express your needs to others, before frustration grabs a hold of you. No need to hit your melting point, speak up!
 
3. Rest.  Make sure you are getting the correct amount of sleep that your body needs. It’s easy to fall into erratic sleeping patterns with parties, travel, preparation, and other seasonal events. If you find it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep try sleeping with the gemstone Petalite. Petalite can take us to a dimension of rest and healing, to a space in which worries and concerns of this world are released.
 
4. Remember to Breath.  When you catch yourself holding your breath in stressful situations, remember to take a few deep breaths.  Breath in clean fresh air to rejuvenate  yourself, and exhale out stress. In stressful situations we have a tendency to breathe shallow. This can increase anxiety in our mind and body.
Choose a Quartz Crystal as a reminder to breath throughout the day.  Place it in your pocket, purse, near your desk, in the kitchen, wherever you will be. Every time you look at the crystal, stop and take a few deep breaths.  Remember to take it with you where ever you go throughout your day.  If you can, place several crystals in all the rooms of your house, car and office. Just breathe!
 
5. Nurture yourself.  Remember to take care of yourself with relaxing music, a evening bath, some quiet time. Use a Rose Quartz  as a reminder to love and nurture yourself. Rose Quartz is known as the “Stone of Love”.  Before we can love another, we must first learn to love ourselves.  Before we can give to others we must first take care of ourselves.
 
6. Stay cool, calm and collected with Fluorite.  Fluorite is my all time favorite stone for staying centered in stressful situations.  It has a cooling energy that helps us maintain our calm.  Reach for the cooling vibrations of Fluorite when you know you will be in situations that will challenge you.
 
7. Meditate.  It’s a known fact that meditation can help reduce stress, lower our heart rate and create peace within us.  Choose a purple Amethyst to assist you in meditation.  Amethyst is known as a stone of Spirituality and helps us to sit in meditation.  Give yourself the gift of meditation this holiday season and bring peace into your heart, mind and spirit.
 
May your holiday season be filled with fun, laughter, joy and RELAXATION!
