Take A Bath With Crystals And Gemstones

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.

Giving Thanks

On this Thanksgiving day, I pause to give thanks for all that I have in my life, from wonderful, caring friends to a job that I love. Each and everyday there is reason to give thanks, not just on this one day that we in the US celebrate. Giving thanks for what we have in our lives is healing, brings compassion and helps us to see the world in a better place.
I’d like to share some thoughts on giving thanks and having gratitude from different sources that  have helped me. For some great ideas on how to cultivate gratitude as part of a yoga practice see Yoga Journal’s list of articles.

Cultivating gratitude is less an act of creating something that isn’t there and more of a practice of realizing what is. It’s about reminding yourself of the miracles embedded in every second of every day—from the largest blessings to the smallest moments.

Tips For A Relaxing Holiday Season Using Crystals & Gemstones

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. >> Continue reading

Crystal Readings

 sunshine-om

On Saturday July 25th I will be in Pagosa Springs, CO at Satori Boutique offering crystal readings from 10 am to 5 pm at the INTUITIVE ARTS FESTIVAL. 

Crystal readings are similar to other forms of readings, like Tarot. A person chooses 3 gemstones from my bag of stones by feeling for an energy connection with the stone. I begin to focus on the crystal’s energy and it’s specific meaning. I will share information on how that energy can help in your everyday life. The stones offer messages and are tools to assist us in bringing balance to our lives.

 

During a reading, crystals provide information and insight that may help answer questions about love, career, happiness or any other area of daily life.

Each semi-precious gemstone radiates a different energy and has it’s own unique vibration. The way the stones resonate with you helps you learn about yourself , as well as helps you to identify what is going on in your life and what needs healing and balancing.

Manifesting with Crystals

 
I am giving a presentation tomorrow night, Thursday June 25, on Manifesting with Crystals. This event is being sponsored  by the Purple Phoenix www.purplephoenix.com.  It will be held at the Asante Center in Durango Colorado.
I’ll be talking about how to use gemstones in our everyday lives to manifest the quality of life we desire.  The secret is out, we create our own realities.  Gemstones are wonderful tools to assist us in setting intention, finding focus and bringing our desires and dreams into form.  We  are more powerful than we recognize.  We are powerful creative beings.
 
In order to manifest we have to see life as we want it, not how it is.  We give our attention and our intention to what we prefer.  This is where gemstones can come in to help us.
Gemstones are energy in form.  They can carry our intentions and desires into form. >> Continue reading

Balancing the Chakras with Gemstones and Flower Essences

I attended  a workshop on the healing power of flower essences and the chakra energy system this weekend with Rhonda PallasDowney, the author of ” The Healing Power of Flowers”.
Rhonda shared wonderful information on seven different flower essences, their healing qualities and how they relate to balancing the chakra energy system.
I’ve used flower essences over the years and even make my own flower essences using the flowers that grow here in Colorado as well as those in my yard in the Florida Keys.  Spending time with the flowers, getting to know their energies and “listening” to them brings me out into nature and strengthens my connection to Mother Earth.
It was fun for me to relate this information on the flower essences to the chakra energy system and extend that information into the world of gemstones. I’ve been teaching classes on the healing power of gemstones and the chakras for many years now and my gemstone jewelry chakra designs incorporates this information.  >> Continue reading

What to do with a Crystal & Gemstone Collection?

I think I may have found a new sideline to my work- “Crystal and Gemstone appraiser“.
All this week  I’ve been helping a friend sort through, identify and price a large crystal and gemstone collection she recently acquired. She came to me and asked, “ What do I do with this amazing  Crystal collection my friend needs to let go of?”  I knew I could help and have some fun at the same time.
The collection contains a wide variety of beautiful gemstones and crystals which need pricing so that they can be re- sold. We have been sorting through many polished stones as well as rough mineral specimens like Malachite, Chrysocolla, Apache Tears. When a large perfect Aquamarine crystal turned up I knew the previous owner was a serious collector as this one stone is valued at more than $400.00. >> Continue reading
