 I’ve been offering crystal readings this last week. The beginning of a New Year is a fantastic time to get a reading.

One of the things I see coming up in these recent readings is the need for people to be grounded.

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 already 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 can 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.

I can place the stone over my written intentions to help attract and magnify the aspiration.

I also wear a Hematite Bracelet.

This Hematite bracelet helps me connect to the grounding energies of Hematite.

I can rub my fingers over the smooth round beads to remind myself to stay focused.

As we enter the new year, set aside some time to think about what you really want.
Be as specific as possible and don’t limit yourself.
You are planting your seeds in the fertile ground of intention.
I stay grounded and focused with Hematite whenever I find myself going back to old habits it always brings me back to my intention, like an old friend, reminding me of my true desires.
Ground and focus with Hematite and watch your intentions turn into manifestations!

Ring out the old, ring in the new!

December 29, 2019

  End of the year Crystal ritual: I’d like to share with you one of my favorite crystal rituals for saying good bye to the outgoing year and welcoming in the new year. I find it very helpful to spend some time reflecting on the passing year. I start by asking myself questions.   What was my biggest success of the year?   What was my biggest upset?   What was the biggest surprise? These kinds of questions allow me to take a good look at the positives and the negatives of the year. As reflect back I can see things that no longer serve me, thoughts, fears, worries, disappoints that I may still be holding on to. I know that the time is now to let these thoughts go. I don’t choose to take this negativity into the new year. I can leave these fears behind and welcome in […]

Peridot for Well Being- Birthstone For August

August 13, 2019

I love Peridot.  Maybe because it is my birthstone. Peridot is the birthstone for August.  But I didn’t always love it.  I can remember as a kid getting the yellow green stone for my birthday and wishing my birthstone was more exciting, like maybe the rich color of purple Amethyst or bright shiny Diamond.  It wasn’t until I was much older that my appreciation  for Peridot took hold.  Once I discovered its subtle energies I was won over. Peridot is often used in crystal healing and there are many good reasons why. Peridot has a long history of uses.  The Egyptians made Peridot beads  2,500 years ago.  It was also used to make rings and other jewelry. In Greece and Rome Peridot is considered a stone of royalty.  Since ancient times Peridot was viewed as a symbol of the sun. Sometimes it was worn as a protection stone.  Peridot was believed to bring wealth to […]

Crystal Collecting or Crystal Hoarding?

June 23, 2019

I’m in a process of reviewing my personal crystal collection and I’m starting to wonder if I’ve become a crystal hoarder. Oh no! Could it be? I’ve been in the business of selling crystals and stones for the past 25 years. I’ve owned several physical stores and have an on line business since 1994. One of the joys about my work is purchasing stones knowing they are not for me, but passing them to those who are called to them. It’s a delight to witness when someone connects to a stone, whether it be at the store, at a show or on line. Along the way I have purchased some very beautiful stones I just knew I wouldn’t sell.

Crystal Therapy: Stones and Crystals to Help Curb Intense Cravings

April 24, 2019

For hundreds of years, mankind has always believed that some crystals and tones are conduits of energy that will affect one’s behavior and spiritual force. Nikola Tesla considered one of the greatest minds of all time, believe that all forms in the universe have their own energy that will alter the pulsation and vibration of similar or contrasting forms of energy. Unfortunately, Eastern mystics are dismissed by Western medicines as nothing more than quacks when for millennia, they have helped patients even before the word alcohol and drug rehab entered the lexicon of substance abuse. With that said, here are some crystals and stones that can help with addiction treatment: Amethyst – This crystal has been dubbed the ‘sobriety stone’ for its powers to help individuals turn a corner in their struggle to curb their cravings. What it does is to elevate your consciousness and link you up to a […]
