So  it’s that time of year for you Crystal Hottie Aquarians to celebrate Life!
Let’s Talk about a Crystal for Aquarians

I am not claiming that I am an astrology expert. At all.

I know about my own sign and I follow it and do see a lot of the alignments in it. But that’s it.

So why am I giving astrological advice here at all?

Well, I get the astrological/crystal correspondence question quite often so I thought I’d start doing a series of these videos.

The person who I follow along with when it comes to crystals-astrology-alignments is Edgar Cayce.

A while ago he came up with certain crystal alignments that went along with astrological signs. In fact, I learned that info from this here book:

Please don’t ask me about commercial “birthstones” b/c most of that info comes from various gemological societies for the purpose of selling gemstones. Although, some are reported to have come from ancient teachings, I don’t know which have & which have not. But if you do know of a source for that info, please let me know about it!! I see a lot more sense in what Edgar Casey did with his astrological alignments than the usual birth stones we hear about.

Edgar Casey recommended Garnet for Aquarians

Now there are several different types of garnet but the one that I see most often recommended that kind of seems to make most sense to me is Almandine Garnet. And, it’s a gorgeous deep, deep, deep red stone; usually has no transparency in it; looks almost black! Staring into a larger piece, with the sunlight gleaming off of it, I think it looks like a glittering dazzling deep burgundy galaxy forming & organizing.

When almandines are tumbled, they look like black cherries. Just Beautiful!

A natural (yet polished) almandine garnet dodecahedron expressing its inherent sacred geometry!

Aquarius’ date range is from January 20th – February 18th. It’s a water sign. After looking over the personality traits that align with Aquarians, I feel like the reason why Edgar Casey chose garnet is because it’s a root chakra stone & its quite grounding.

It’s also a stone all about strength + security.

AND about balancing that root chakra.

Mr. Cayce most likely chose this stone to provide a balancing effect for Aquarians, helping to counter-balance that water sign up with some earth element.

Garnet is an aluminum silicate & it’s relatively hard on the Mohs Hardness Scale; anywhere between a 6.5-7.5. So you can find lots of garnet jewelry pieces making it very convenient to wear.

Do  you have other stones that you prefer to work with  as an Aquarian or for Aquarians that you know?  Please post it in the comments below.

Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World

This Crystal Q&A question comes from Geert in Belgium (Can I just take a moment to gush about our worldwide sparkly community?! I’m so grateful to have our HMCA Certified Crystal Healers now in 10 different countries around the world! (Find one near you!)

Sharing the love & knowledge of crystal healing, that’s what it’s all about & I’m so freakin’ happy that we’re on this path together :).  Thank You Sparkle Gems!

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations. Let me also warn you that this is a link-rich post. I have lots of good resources here to refer you to. ALL of the products that I recommend are products that I have personally used & HIGHLY recommend. Some of the links below are affiliate links that will earn me a commission if you purchase through them, but you can certainly purchase through a different link. Just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t have them here if I didn’t totally believe in them.

So, Geert asks:

“When I ground, but my body is not technically connected to the ground, is this OK? Will we still receive the benefits of grounding when we are on the 10th floor of a building, or on a train, or on a plane?”

Watch this vid for my answer to Geert’s question…
 Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World

 

Grounding is definitely a good idea & a wonderful practice in the world of energetic healing & crystal healing:

We need to ground to stay balanced, so that we don’t get depleted w/ an electron deficiency!!! In today’s fast paced electro savvy world, we’re surrounded by positively charged ions & are mostly insulated & disconnected from the healing effect of Mama Earth. In order to stay balanced, the best thing to do is have skin to earth contact, picking up the earth’s natural plethora of negative ions.

Because of those great chuck taylors, strappy sandals, or fancy boots you’re  kickin’, you’re  feet don’t get to touch the earth & accumulate the negative ions that our great planet provides aplenty.  Really all you need to do to ground is walk around barefoot on the Earth … (I recommend doing this as much as possible).

If you wanna learn more about grounding with the earth’s energy (earthing), there’s a whole book about this that I highly recommend:

But, if you’re an urban Crystal Hottie, or you live in a cold climate, well it’s probably not really that practical to go barefoot very often.  Luckily,  we can use substitutes for our practical needs (love me some practical answers).
Crystals to the rescue!

What about when you’re off the ground & you’re actually physically disconnected from the earth?

  • Use crystals in your meditation, grab that black tourmaline,  focus your intention and visualize rooting and grounding into Mother Earth.
  • For travel, I  have another blog post on that right here on Crystals & Travel which includes my special mojo kit for travel.
  • Here’s that other video I referred to on Crystals for Grounding.
  • When traveling in a train or an airplane, you need to set a strong intention during the flight & take extra special care after the flight;
  • Carry a hematite stone & use it to help balance your electromagnetic field & alleviate jet lag.
  • Also take your shoes off during the flight (and rub your tootsies w/ the hematite).

Natural hematite tumbled stones
BEWARE & Combat Radiation After a Flight
What? Radiation on an airplane?

Yes, I know from my last post on this topic that this is shocking news to many. Yep, flying the “friendly” skies gives as much as 1,000 times the radiation of those airport body scanners everyone is yammering on about. It’s not actually the airplane doing this but our closer proximity to the Sun. Dr. Mercola, natural health expert explains:

“Nearly everyone forgets that when you fly, there is also ionizing radiation exposure. In fact, on a typical transcontinental flight at 30,000 feet you will be exposed to 20 microsieverts of radiation. That is 1,000 times the dose you receive from the scanner.”

So what to do about that?

1. Load up on anti-oxidants before, during & after your flight. Both in supplement form and naturally through your food: blueberries, leafy greens, colloidal silver

This is the kind we use in our household. Please consult with your own doctor on when & how much to take.

 

2. Take an Crystal Anti-Radiation Mineral Bath as quickly as you can after the flight. Ingredients:

  • If you have access to a specimen of colemanite (used just for this purpose b/c it has a low hardness and the frequent baths will eventually cause it to lose its luster); Ready for my Radiation Detox Bath!

    colemanite is boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation

  • 1 hematite (use a polished one or it will rust)
  • 1 cup of plain epsom salts
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup high quality Himalayan Salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp of Sonne’s Detoxification No 7- contains bentonite (mineral-rich volcanic clay), soaks up yuckies, like radiation & helps your body recover quickly

 

My large Colemanite.

3. Fly at night. No Sun. Genius, right?!! Now those red-eye flights don’t sound so bad.

Oh…here’s that great Grounding Alternative Kit created by the authors of the book; Earthing that I mentioned in the vid:

Hope this helps answer your questions on using crystals to support you while traveling & how to help stay grounded.

Do you have a special crystal that you have to have with you when you travel or if you live in a high-rise? Or a special routine that you do in order to stay grounded & healthy when you’re jet setting? Please share that in the comments below. 

Crystal Blessings!

What Mom Never Told You About Autoimmune Diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia

Autoimmune Diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia

…or maybe you’re Mom is really on her game when it comes to autoimmune diseases, lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. & DID tell you about this stuff! But with these dis-eases on the rise…I think its time to discuss it here on my blog.

WebMD.com very generally sums up an autoimmune dis-ease like this:

general, lingering symptoms, means your immune system is attacking healthy tissue.

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations. Let me also warn you that this is a link-rich post. I have lots of good resources here to refer you to. ALL of the products that I recommend are products that I have personally used & HIGHLY recommend. Some of the links below are affiliate links that will earn me a commission if you purchase through them, but you can certainly purchase through a different link. Just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t have them here if I didn’t totally believe in them. 🙂

OK, let’s get on with it.

Like I said, it seems that crystal-related questions about these auto-immune illnesses or dis-eases is on the up-tick for me. In fact…Dr. Mercola also notices the trend, stating:
Asthma, hay fever, eczema, food allergies, lupus, multiple sclerosis and other immune- mediated afflictions are all on the rise.

According to some estimates, allergies and diseases of the immune system have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled in the last few decades, with some studies indicating that more than half of the U.S. population has at least one clinically diagnosable allergy.
I have several theories on why that is. But I digress…

So let’s get to addressing these various issues.

Bare in mind that I don’t usually rely on crystal healing as a stand-alone treatment, but as a handy-dandy & quite effective compliment. I feel strongly that every aspect of our health can benefit from a multi-layered approach & not rely on 1 method alone. Just as with music, several harmonics (vibrational frequencies of varying kinds) all resonating together, is found to be very pleasing…on many different levels. 🙂
Here’s the common Q:
I have some clients or people I know with various autoimmune dis-eases or illnesses such as allergies, lupus, fibromyalgia &  Multiple Sclerosis. I’m wondering what crystals or treatments would be most beneficial?

*Before I give my answer here I, again, want to be very clear & drive a few points home regarding looking for the “Magic Pill” in a crystal-cure. So you can click on this here link or watch the intro to this video…OR BOTH!*

Here’s my A:
Crystals can really enhance an overall holistic approach to treating any auto-immune dis-ease, symptoms or illness. You can also easily merge them with other therapies. For instance:

  • Dr. Mercola recommends allowing yourself to get DIRTY! Quit all this germ-o-phobia. And I throw in Earthing along with this. Get connected back to nature, get some dirt under your finger & toenails & quit using Purell every other second. I use grounding crystals along with my Earthing techniques & this has been very beneficial to my students & clients. In fact, I’ve often referred to my friend & doctor, Dr. Koniver’s Free Earthing eBook to introduce peeps to this whole concept.
Doing some grounding work with my Grounding Crystals. :)
  • There is usually some inflammation going on along with these dis-eases. Inflammation can be decreased when working with larimar & blue chalcedony. You can mix some anti-inflammatory herbs in with this: boswellia & willow bark. How about a gem elixir tea? Both of these stones are non-toxic so safe to create a gem elixir tea with. 🙂
  • Regular use of a Biomat has been found to benefit the treatment of chronic pain & autoimmune conditions, including but not limited to neuropathy, fibromyalgia, back pain, Lyme disease & arthritis. Yes, these mats are expensive, but many times a professional Crystal Healer will have 1 on hand that you can book some time with, making it much more affordable. Ask around. You’ll so ENJOY your time on a mat!
  • Thyme, Eucalyptus & Bergamot are just a few essential oils that have been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation. I find essential oils & crystals to be perfect partners! How about a mojo bag with 1-3 suggested crystals from this blog post, some boswellia herb & 5-10 drops of essential oil of choice to carry around, or keep in the car, at work & in your sleeping pillow? Or use these oil in an oil burner while conducting a crystal healing session for a client or if you’re the client, ask your Certified Crystal Healer to use these in your treatment.
  • And of course, sufficient sleep, stress reduction techniques, exercise & diet are all a MUST.

Specific Recommendations
Now, here are some stone prescriptions to use for specific illnesses.

Again, keep in mind, this is in conjunction with a sound holistic health plan. You can use these stones in a body layout during a crystal healing session. (You can find a practitioner near you & request that they use these stones in your treatment.) *Hey! The stress relief that you’ll experience from a session alone will start you on a positive path of healing*. You can also choose to meditate with these stones, create a mojo bag to carry with you, create a crystal grid…I could go on & on here but let me try to keep it somewhat simple for the sake of this post:

  • Multiple Sclerosis – I like to recommend working with natrolite, eudialyte, astrophyllite & green jade. A combo of 3 of those would be great.
  • Lupus – My strong recommendations are: honey calcite, titanium quartz & silver. Now the silver can be in jewelry mineral form (not many of us are carrying chunks or bars around) or you can actually ingest it as colloidal silver (please do your own research on this, but even Dr. Oz is on board, dude!)
This is the kind we use in our household. Please consult with your own doctor on when & how much to take.
  • Fibromyalgia – friend & highly respected fellow crystal author, Phillip Permutt suggests this combo: abalone shell, amethyst, selenite & rutilated quartz & again, my students & clients have found it to be very effective. I also find that honey calcite is very effective. Choose a combo of 3 for best results.

A Few Words From Those Who Know the Power of  Crystals

If you know someone who is suffering from some sort of auto-immune dis-ease, how about making them a little mojo bag of crystals or make them up a tea blend & include 1 tumbled stone mentioned here or share this blog post with them, I know they will appreciate it! And if you have some remedies of your own, please do share them below!

Healthy Crystal Blessings!
