healingcrystalsbookbymichaelgiengerWhat I love about Michael Gienger’s book, Healing Crystals The A-Z guide to 430 gemstones, is first the size.  It fits in my purse because it is only 1/4 inch thick and measures 4 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches. This is so convenient when traveling or visiting gemstone stores.  The author lists the important healing effects and areas of activity of each crystal as follows:  (SP) refers to the ‘spirit or spiritual aspect’, including intentions, aims and focus on life;  (S) refers to the ‘soul or the subconscious’, including temperament, emotions, intuitive perceptions, dreams, psychological experiences, habits and unconscious reactions; (M) refers to’mindor mental aspects’, including ideas, values, convictions, views, manner of thinking, and conscious action; and (B)  refers to the ‘body or physical aspect’, the human organism as a whole with its senses, organs and functions.

This is one of my  favorite reference books.

Is Blue the Color Therapy for You?

January 28th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in COLORS



The healing properties of blue may help calm strong emotions, anger, aggression, hysteria, and soothe mind and nerves.  Blue color therapy can cool down inflammations, reduce fevers, and help with insomnia.  Because the color blue is associated with the Throat Chakra, blue color therapy can help with eyes, ears, nose, and throat problems.


Those with a preference for blue find the color cool and soothing.  It is a color that makes them feel at peace and restful.  People who prefer blue often keep their distance but will offer calm and practical help when needed.

A person with an aversion to blue may be very disciplined, strong career worker, and doesn’t care for commentary or restriction.  Also too much exposure to blue can create depression, feelings of gloom, fearfulness or melancholy.

1.  Select the essential oil you want to use for this meditation.  Take off the lid and place several drops onto a folded tissue. Wave tissue gently under nostrils ensuring both sides of the nose take in the oil vibrations.  Don’t let the oil touch the skin.

essentialoilmeditationtechnique2.  Focus on breathing in vapors with each breath, imagining that it travels up the nasal passages, and circulates round and through the brain.  With each breath the journey continues through the nervous system.  Visualize it flowing into the organs and glands of the body, through all the muscles, skeleton and every cell in your body.  Let it flow through the skin, hair,  face, feet and hands.

3.  Take the energy you are breathing in, let it surround your physical body, and fill all of the invisible energy fields that you know make up the aura.  Continue until you think or can imagine that your energy fields are almost ‘buzzing’ with the energy.  Remove the tissue from under the nose, and just relax, allowing the process to settle.

4.  If you think that you need another oil, you can repeat this process.  Generally you won’t need more than two oils.

Open Heart Chakra, Love, Kindness & Affection

January 22nd, 2013 | Posted by Velda in CHAKRAS


The Open Heart Chakra is about love, kindness, and affection.  However  many emotions, such as love, hatred, grief, joy, jealousy, fear of betrayal, feelings of isolation and loneliness and the ability to make ourselves feel better, are all centered in the Heart Chakra.  When it is open, we are compassionate and friendly, and work at harmonious relationships.  If our Heart Chakra is under-active, we can be cold and distant.  If this chakra is over-active, we are suffocating people with love and possibly for selfish reasons.

 The flowers for the Heart Chakra are roses.

Heart Chakra Affirmations are about Unconditional love.

The healthy Heart Chakra is all about Vegetables and Fruit.
