Clear Home Hegative Energies

Here are several crystal suggestions to keep your home from absorbing unwanted negative energies:

1.  Consider placing a bowl of crystals on your kitchen table, that include Snowflake Obsidian, Amethyst, and Apache Tears.  Together these crystals are wonderful for dissipating and removing negative energies.

2.  You may want to put a couple of chunks of Black Obsidian or Mahogany Obsidian outside on either side of your front door to keep negative energies from entering your space.Clear Home Negative Energies

3.  In the room where your front door (or side door—which ever folks enter through) is located, set a piece of Black Tourmaline in each corner.  Black Tourmaline is a wonderful resource when you want to diffuse negativity and transmute the energy into loving kindness.

4.  Smoky Quartz is one of the best crystals to clear unwanted and negative energy from a room or space. It will remove the dense energy and replace it with a clear, clean, uplifting energy.  It is the “Roto Rooter”  for clearing a space!

Your Personal Year Number & Color

February 4th, 2017 | Posted by Velda in COLORS | GEMSTONES | NUMBER POWER

Calculating Personal Year NumberI am fascinated with the possible messages from numbers and decided to share how to calculate your Personal Year Vibration Number as shown in Louise Hay’s book, Numbers & Colors.  First we need to know what the Universal Number is for 2017, by adding the four digits:  2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 (1 + 0 = #1).  In numerology, you continue reducing numbers until you have a single digit.  The Universal Year #1 represents the start of a fresh new cycle – a new 9 year cycle of creativity, learning and growth.

Calculating Personal Year Number

Calculating Your Personal Year Number

Add together the birth month + the birth day + current Universal Year = Personal Year Vibration Number. Remember to reduce the result to a single digit by adding together the digits of the sum and doing so repeatedly until the sum is less than 10.  Here is an example: 5 (for May) +12 (for birth day) + 1 (Universal Year 2017) = 18 (1+8 = #9  Personal Year Vibration).  If your calculations for personal vibrations total an 11 or 22, do not reduce these numbers to a 2 or 4.  The numbers 11 and 22 are considered Master Numbers. They indicate that you are being given an opportunity to operate for that period on a higher vibration.  Write them as “11/2″ or “22/4″.   You then have a choice of being the reduced 2 or 4 rather than 11/2 or 22/4 (see options below).

Your Personal Year Number & Color

Following are snippets found in Louise Hay’s book,  Numbers & Colors, on each Personal Year:

#1  Personal Year:  Color-Red, Gem-Ruby, Key Word-Beginning, Affirmation: “I break new ground and begin new ventures!”

#2 Personal Year:  Color-Orange, Gem-Moonstone, Key Word-Cooperate, Affirmation: “I trust the process of life, & unfold in Divine right order!”

#3 Personal Year:  Color-Yellow, Gem-Topaz, Key Word-Enjoyment, Affirmation: “I Love Life, and the joy of living!”

#4 Personal Year:  Color-Green, Gems-Emerald/Jade, Key Word-Practical, Affirmation: “I turn everything into an opportunity!”

#5 Personal Year:  Color-Blue, Gems-Turquoise/Aquamarine, Key Word-Change, Affirmation:  “I welcome change and expand my boundaries!”

#6 Personal Year:  Color-Indigo, Gems-Pearl/Sapphire/Lapis, Key Word-Responsibility, Affirmation:  “I accept my responsibilities with love and joy!”

#7 Personal Year:  Color-Purple-Violet, Gem-Amethyst, Key Word-Faith, Affirmation:  “I enjoy the inner quest and find many answers!”

#8 Personal Year:  Colors-Beige/Brown/Pink, Gem-Diamond, Key Word-Achievement, Affirmation: “I am the prosperous, successful executive of my world!”

#9 Personal Year:  Colors-All Pastels, Gem/Precious Metal-Opal/Gold, Key Word-Completion, Affirmation:  “I am satisfied, fulfilled, and complete!”

Meditating With Malachite

November 22nd, 2016 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES
Meditating With Malachite

Meditating with Malachite

Why consider Meditating with Malachite?   Here are a few suggestions:

1.  Malachite reveals the truth about oneself and brings to the surface that which is unknown or unseen to the conscious mind.  Some practitioners have used Malachite in meditations to get in touch with the Earth Mother.

2.  Meditating with Malachite shows you where dis-harmonies are within your mind, body and soul.   Our bodies can tell us what we need, what we are missing and what is required to do to correct the problem, but often it is hard to be able to listen to what our bodies are saying.

3.  Meditating with Malachite helps strengthen the immune system.  While meditating, hold a Malachite crystal in each hand and allow the energies to flush through your body. Visualize the energy sweeping through your blood stream cleaning out all the little germs and viruses that make us sick.  It is important when Meditating with Malachite to always work with polished stones.   Malachite is toxic in raw form and one must avoid breathing its dust.

Meditating With Malachite

Judy Hall gives us the following Malachite Meditation in her book, Life-Changing Crystals.  This meditation is a potent way to connect with the issues that are keeping you from stepping into your power. It helps resolve past issues and energetic blocks.  Malachite’s strong protective properties and wisdom make you feel safe as you gently let go of old thoughts, feelings and experiences that no longer serve you.

Judy Hall’s Malachite Meditation (What am I holding on to?)

Meditating With Malachite

 1.  Find a quiet place, and breathe gently, bring your attention into the crystal.

Keep your eyes half-open and gaze at the whorls and contours of your Malachite as you connect with the crystal’s power.  Feel its strength in your hand.  Let the energy radiate up your arms and into your heart and mind. As you focus on each whorl, let it take you inward.  Allow the bands to move you gently into contact with your deepest self. Close your eyes and relax.Meditating With Malachite

2.  When you are ready, place the crystal over your solar plexus.

Ask the crystal to let you know what you are holding onto, and what would be beneficial to release.  Acknowledge any emotions that arise, and lovingly release them.  Take your mind around your body to any areas of tension or pain, breathe gently and let them go.  Let the Malachite show you any hooks that are in your heart and gently dissolve them, filling their place with forgiveness and loving energy.Meditating With Malachite

3.  Let them go, with forgiveness in your heart.

Ask the Malachite to show you how the past is affecting your present, and how your mind and your emotions control what you manifest.  Willingly surrender all that no longer serves you – all the pain, emotions, beliefs, and expectations that have weighed you down and held you back.  Acknowledge them and let them go, with forgiveness in your heart.

4.   Step into your power.

Ask the crystal to show you the gifts hidden behind the old pain, the qualities you have developed and the resources you can draw on.  Allow yourself to know how you will use them, and how you will work with Malachite in the future to manifest your new reality.  If there is any other information from Malachite, wait quietly for the answer.  If an inner figure appears, negotiate a positive role for it.Meditating With Malachite

5.  Feel the strong protection from the Malachite wrapping around you.

Before you begin the return journey, bring your attention to the subtle bodies around your physical self, and ask the Malachite to draw off and transmute any negative energies or disharmonies that have not been released.  Finally, feel the strength of the crystal and its powerful connection to the Earth, grounding you into your physical existence, bringing you fully into the present moment.  When you feel ready, thank the Malachite, open your eyes, get up and move around.

Heart Energy Balancing & More

Heart Energy Balancing

It is important to know that the Heart Chakra is the balance point for our entire energy system.    Balancing the heart brings a life-supporting calm to us, and an ability to relate positively to the world around us. The layout shown in the illustration above is from Simon Lilly & Susan Lilly’s book, Using Crystals For Healing, helps stabilize all the energies of the heart.

Balancing the Heart Chakra’s Energies

Heart Energy Balancing & More1.  First place a small Rose Quartz on the Heart Chakra at the center of the chest.

2.  Take four Green Tourmalines and make a cross along the axis of the body around the Rose Quartz.  Clear Quartz can be used if Tourmalines are unavailable.  (If any stones used have natural points, be sure that the points are facing outwards. These outward pointed stones ensure that a relaxing calm is established).

3.  Between the four Tourmalines make a second diagonal cross using Smoky Quartz.

4.  Stay in this heart layout for five to ten minutes.  This pattern will release stress from the heart while balancing and grounding its energies.

Herkimer Diamond Layout

1.  This can be used following the treatment above or done separately.  Beneath the Heart Chakra is another small energy center that is concerned with holding and bringing to fruition our most cherished wishes and desires.

2.  A Herkimer Diamond placed  just under the heart will help access this energy, bringing a sense of clarity and direction when there is confusion.

3.  Stay in this heart layout for five or ten minutes.  Afterwards to feel more grounded, hold in your hands any red, black, or brown stones.

Crystal Therapy For Insomnia

May 30th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

Sleeping Beauty Crystal Insomnia Therapy

Have you experienced insomnia?  When struggling with sleepless nights, we would all rather imagine ourselves as a sleeping beauty.  Following is an exercise found in Christina Rodenbeck’s book Crystals for Everyday Living.

Crystal Therapy For Insomnia

For this technique you will need one tumbled Amethyst or one tumbled Sodalite Crystal.  Amethyst is a natural tranquilizer that helps to calm and soothe the mind. Deep blue Sodalite is especially useful if you have nightmares, panic attacks and fears are disturbing your sleep.  Now lie comfortably on your back in bed.  Place the Amethyst or Sodalite Crystal on your brow chakra (located in center of eyebrows).  Leave the crystal in place as you practice one of the following relaxation techniques.

Crystal Therapy for InsomniaTechnique 1:  Put a hand on your stomach and take long, slow breaths, allowing your belly to expand as you inhale.  As you exhale, relax your chest and shoulders.  Focus your attention on the rise and fall of your abdomen until you feel that you are completely relaxed.

Technique 2:  Allow a picture to arise in your mind of a scene or activity that you find peaceful and soothing, especially an activity with a regular rhythm.  This can be walking in the woods, swimming, or petting your dog or cat.  Focus on the repetitive rhythm and relax.

When completing either technique, place one hand over your heart chakra and one hand either above or below your navel.  This is also very calming and balancing for your chakras.  Shhhh…Nighty,  Night!

Garnets/Vision Bds-Activate Creativity

Here is a fun exercise working with the energy of garnets and making a vision board that triggers a creative flow.  Author Judy Hall in her book, Life-Changing Crystals, gives her readers the following exercise:  Activating Your Creativity – The Vision Board.  You will need a selection of garnets (1-red, 1-orange and 5-grossular garnets), a collection of images, glue, scissors, and a piece of cardboard.

Garnet/VisionBds-Activate Creativity

 1.  The first part of this creative building exercise is to lie down in a quiet place and place the red garnet on your Root Chakra and the orange garnet on your Sacral Chakra for 15 minutes and allow these chakras fizz with energy.

Garnets/VisionBds-Activate Creativity

Garnets/VisionBds-Activiate Creativity2.  Gather as many pictures as possible of everything that you would like to see in your life—no matter how ridiculous, outrageous, and bizarre you might think they seem.  Be playful in your choices.  Cultivate optimism when you do this, and do not judge as to whether it is practical or sensible.

3.  Stick the pictures onto a large piece of cardboard, overlapping them so there are no gaps in the energy.  Put images of confident, creative people on the board, as well as items, places, situations, gifts, and goals you seek to attain in your life.  This is an excellent opportunity to invite your inner-child to come out and play with you.Garnets/VisionBds-Activiate Creativity

4.  When the board is complete, lie it down and, with your left hand, place the five Grossular Garnets in a  five-pointed star shape.   Join up the lines between the points by tracing them with your finger.  Start with #1 and trace in numerical order finishing connecting #5 to #1.  This is a manifesting layout or referred to as the caller-in of love, abundance, and healing.  It is a traditional shape for grounding your wishes.

5.  The last step is to take the garnets you placed on your chakras (red & orange), touch your forehead and then put them in the center of your vision board.  If possible, stick all the garnets in place and display the board where you can see it often.

 HAVE FUN ACTIVATING YOUR CREATIVITY!

Zincite Healing Crystals

January 27th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in CHAKRAS | GEMSTONES

Zincite Healing Crystals

Zincite increases life force, courage, passion, creativity, will and personal power. It has an unusual and very potent energy.  Most will feel this energy and make contact with it very quickly, when holding it in their hand.  It is a powerful stone to assist you, if used for small periods of time, on a regular basis and this applies to all colors of this crystal.

Zincite contains zinc, which is essential for cellular metabolism, teeth, bones, skin, and hair.  It balances the thymus gland, immune system, and energy meridians of the body.  It also helps detoxify and synthesize body, psyche, and soul.  The availability for this crystal is sometimes difficult to find but is definitely a stone to add to your healing collection of resources.

Red/Orange Zincite stimulates and energizes the Root and Sacral Chakra as illustrated below:
