For example, what’s the difference between a quartz crystal versus a lapis lazuli stone or a rock that I pick up outside? 1st let me start off by saying that many authors & teachers use the terms “crystals & stones” interchangeably (myself included) b/c its just easier & its common-place.

a little something to encourage you

From time to time we all struggle. Me too. You get that feeling in your gut…sometimes you know what caused it…sometimes you have no idea. But that feeling is there none the less. Don’t let that feeling ruin your day or week or month. Grab it by the short & curlies & kick it out!! Yeah…I said it! Crystals help me to do that every single time. They are my spiritual supports with this sort of thing. Nothing does a […]

But Max wasn’t disappointing at all! We were able to bring water & crystals to […]

Getting to Know Your Crystals

Getting to Know Your Crystals

Oh yes, we read the books & they’re great for telling us what this or that crystal is good for.
