Start by placing a small piece of Rose Quartz on the heart chakra in the center of the chest. Rose Quartz is an excellent crystal for removing blocked emotional stress. Surround the Rose Quartz with four clear Quartz Crystal Points.  This will help release stress. (See illustration above for placement of all the stones.)

The last piece of gemstone to put in place is an Amethyst Quartz Crystal in the center of your forehead. This calms the mind and encourages mental detachment from any emotional recall.gemstones heals the emotions

Lie in this position for five to ten minutes or until you become aware of the feeling of balance and relaxation.  Enjoy future posts on healing with gemstones.

pink sapphire teaches how to master emotions

Natural untreated Pink Sapphires are known to be connected with the human heart. Pink Sapphire helps strengthen and balance the heart. This magnificient gemstone helps ease emotional burdens and pain while relieving the sense of being pressured by life’s demands

Judy Hall writes in her book The Crystal Bible, “Pink Sapphire acts as a magnet to draw into your life all that you need in order to evolve.”

Pink Sapphire reflects the toned-down, more feminine aspect of red color energy, bringing determination, commitment, and caring. Its soothing color calms feelings of anger or resentment, and can aid efforts to meditate and reflect.





Black Tourmaline Energy Earth Net

July 12th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

black tourmaline energy earth net

Create a strong energy connection to the earth and realign the body’s energies by using eight pieces of Black Tourmaline for an energy alignment layout. This energy net help tensions in bones and muscles relax and physical balance improve.  This connection to the earth is a prerequisite for effective grounding and protective support.  Energy net is also useful after travel because it can reduce effects of jetlag.


1.  Use a green cloth to lie on (white sheet for second choice).  It is best to have the layout where your head will be to the north.

2.  The eight Black Tourmalines will be aligned to the same imaginary point in the center of the body.  Put four tourmalines pointing inwards in a cross – one above the head aligned with one between the feet.  The other two on each side outside of arms midway down the body.

3.  Place the remaining four tourmalines as shown on the layout in the above picture so all are aligned and cross at the same point in the center of the body.

4.  Lie down and rest inside this cross-shaped energy pattern.  Remain in the energy net for five to ten minutes, then when you have removed the Black Tourmalines, spend at least 15 minutes resting before returning to normal activity.

Carnelian Energy Net For Healing Etheric Body

carnelian healing net for Etheric Body

The Etheric Body gives vitality, health, life and organization to the Physical Body.  Simon Lilly & Susan Lilly in their book Using Crystals for Healing, illustrates The Carnelian Energy Net for Healing the Etheric Body.  They recommend using this gemstone treatment at any time to help release trauma from deep in the body.  The authors point out that this may sometimes bring old symptoms or pain to the surface before they can be completely removed.

Directions for Carnelian Energy Healing Net:

2.  Place one Carnelian above the top of your head, place one stone at either side of the body at the level of the sacral chakra. These two stones will rest outside your arms when you are lying down on the orange cloth. (Refer to illustration above showing placement of stones.)

3.  Place another stone between the legs at mid-calf level and another below it near the ankles.  The last stone is placed at the base of your throat and near the thymus.

4.  Use net exercise for five minutes at a time. It can be revisited regularly.

Are You Drawn To Carnelian Energy?

are you drawn to carnilain energyCarnelian may attract you when it is necessary to look below the surface of things in order to understand and accept what is going on.  Are you having a hard time focusing on making decisions?  This might be a time you are about to give birth to a new project or tune-up an existing one. Carnelian to the rescue.  It helps you be grounded in the present and to realize your current needs.

energy channeling with hand & crystalEnergy channeling releases excess energy by holding a single terminated quartz crystal in one hand and placing the palm of the other hand on an area of over-excited energy. 1. Start this exercise by holding a quartz crystal in the right hand with the point of the crystal directed toward the ground. (Crystal size about 3 inches long and as small as the diameter of a thumb.)  2. Place the palm of your left hand over any area of the body that you feel tense, irritated, hot, congested, or frustrated.  3. Breathe deeply and evenly while imagining all the excess energy releasing through the crystal into the earth and away from you. I hope you will remember this exercise when overcome by harmful negative thoughts.

To recharge depleted energy or receive extra healing energy, reverse the above exercise. 1. Start with the pointed quartz crystal held in the right hand and aimed towards any area of concerned low energy. 2. Hold your left hand away from the body, with the palm facing upwards. 3. Breathe deeply and evenly, imagine healing energies from the universe passing from your upturned hand, through the crystal and into the designated area of the body. (You may feel warmth or tingling.)  If you would like to read more about healing properties of this amazing gemstone, please go to my search box and enter quartz crystal.
