Does color make a difference?

Does color make a difference?

The colors we surround ourselves with matter. They can diminish or enhance your inner and outer qualities.  Each color has power to change our mood or generate passion and uplift us mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I recently had the opportunity to start from scratch and transform a white walled room into a colorful office for myself. It was fun going through and selecting colors.  It was actually a bit difficult to commit to a color because there were so many. I looked through decorating magazines, taped up paint swatches and even used my pendulum on each possible choose until I decided on turquoise and red. Turquoise is a color of creative expression. It is cool, relaxing, and refreshing. It helps my brain feel calm. it also is a color of dancing to the beat of a different drummer: It enhances individuality and originality. This color helps me express myself, which is why I chose it for my office space/ writing space. I chose red to complement the turquoise that is on my walls. My red desk chair not only looks awesome in the office, red is the color of beginnings and motivation. it’s fitting to sit on the energy of red while being surrounded by  inspiring turquoise. I also chose to accent with yellow, which is a very uplifting and cheery color. Yellow is a hopeful color that brings in sun energy.   What colors are you surrounding yourself with?   Whether you wear them or add them to your environment, here is a list of a few colors and their general qualities to consider when choosing your color...
How crystals can help you lose weight

How crystals can help you lose weight

Among all of the methods for weight loss, you cannot ignore exercise and eating clean and watching your portion sizes. I personally have become addicted to working out, I have a routine, every morning I get up before the sun and get my workout done before I start my day. When I skip it, I can feel it. I am grumpy, and I just don’t feel myself. This doesn’t include my weekly rest day (which is also important.)   We need to care for our physical body like that, but there are other factors at play, and we are more than our physical bodies. We are also made up of our emotions our mind and our spirit. We are made of measurable and unmeasurable energy, and if we ignore that and only focus on the physical aspect of our workouts and food, we may not be successful in the long run. Weight loss is attainable, but without looking at yourself as a whole, it may not be sustainable.   There are many other ways to nurture your energy body as a part of the whole, and one way is to work with crystals.   How Crystals help~   Imbalances in the energetic body can manifest as excess weight and a general state of imbalance (physically, mentally and emotionally.) By taking care of potential problems before they hit your physical body, we can ward off dis-ease even before it manifests in your body. Crystal placement on and around your body supports health (thus a healthy weight) by the principle of entrainment; energy of a stronger and higher frequency will dominate...
About Calcite

About Calcite

I love Calcite, it is one of my favorite crystals, it is relatively easy to find and it occurs in many colors; clear, red, orange and green are the most common. When working with Calcite, the color is something to consider as it’s hue affects the properties and influences how you work with it. Calcite will help balance hormones and is wonderful to work with when you are suffering from any type of hormonal imbalance. In my own experiences, I experience calcite as a tonic for the whole body, it’s calming and gentle. It amplifies any energies present. Calcite is wonderful to open energy channels, which helps all physical, mental and emotional systems. It is especially good to help open the channels for learning new things, which is why it is an excellent stone for students.   Clear Calcite will amplify and clear the energy, especially the mind, which makes it really good for students. It’s very purifying and is great to open and balance all of the chakras. Red Calcite is one of my favorites, with it’s 1st chakra grounding and balancing energies, it will help stabilize and strengthen you. It is great to balance out the hormones and I recommend it when a woman has menstrual or fertility issues and PMS. It is detoxifying and clearing as well as strengthening for the will. Honey Calcite is associated with the solar plexus chakra and is great to balance out the will and it is great hormonally, especially for menopausal issues. Green Calcite associated with the heart chakra will restore harmony and balance to your life and is a...
What is the most simple way to get grounded?

What is the most simple way to get grounded?

Our connection with Mother earth is important to preserve in these modern times. With all of the rapid spiritual evolution, solar flares, political unrest, EMF pollution, violence in society, autoimmune disorders, mental illness, running yourselves ragged and I could go on….. What do these things have in common? They contribute to being ungrounded and experiencing lack of harmony with our grand Earth Mother. When ungrounded we are at the mercy of these outside forces and it will be hard, if not impossible to remain in balance.   I am all about crystals and there are many that we can reach for to assist us in grounding and protecting ourselves. The top few being Black Tourmaline (one of my favorites), Smoky Quartz, Hematite, and many red stones that are connected with our root chakras such as red Jasper or Garnet. Today though, I am going to share something extremely simple, doesn’t require a thing except a small patch of dirt, or grass..   Simply take off those shoes and place them on the earth, right over the dirt or grass, or leaves. This simple practice has been termed ‘Earthing’ in recent times and is a movement that is ever growing. You can read more about it here at  the Earthing Institute website. Earthing connects us at a primal level with the earth and all of her wisdom and helps nearly every health concern by electrically grounding our circuits to heal inflammation and disease. This simple practice helps everything from headaches, nausea, feelings of overwhelm, autoimmune diseases. ANY illness or imbalance will be helped by earthing it.   Simple, right? I...
Stability and Petrified Wood

Stability and Petrified Wood

It’s one thing to be grounded, another to be both grounded and to feel the incredible strength and stability of Mother Earth and the mighty tree that is held anchored in her body. If you think about it, when you hold Petrified Wood, you are holding the essence of this great strength. It puts things in perspective and helps to clear a path for you to achieve what you set out to do. In addition to being very stabilizing, it is calming and soothing to the emotions, there is a gentle calm that falls over you when this fossilized wood is around. Being so strong and powerful, Petrified Wood helps with hip and back problems and helps you to stand tall and as mighty as a tree with it’s leaves reaching for the sun and it’s roots snaking down towards the core of the Earth. To access this power sit tall with a piece of Petrified Wood in your hand or placed at your root chakra and simply go within and breathe the power and sensation up your spine from your root to your crown. Sit this way for as long as you need to and imagine that you have roots that reach down and branches that reach to the...
Experiencing Abundance and Prosperity

Experiencing Abundance and Prosperity

I’ve been focusing on increasing my prosperity and breaking through the blocks of poverty consciousness. There are so many things that I am wanting to do, mostly relating to my business, and everything costs money. Currency. Money is an energy, it flows by the universal laws: * You must give in order to receive. *Thoughts are things, how we think (and speak) affects our results. *A vacuum must be filled, so get rid of the old and outdated in order to allow the new opportunities to enter. Along with working on my thoughts, words and deeds in relation to clearing energetic blocks, I discovered the tools I continually need to manifest the prosperity and “good luck” that I know is at my fingertips. If you look around my home, you will see crystal grids, magickal honey pots filled with my intentions (will explain in a later blog post,) magickal oils I have crafted such as ‘fast money,’ ‘wealth,’ and ‘lodestone’ (which is very magnetic, helpful for manifesting.) My home is decorated with all kinds of crystals, and lately I have been focused on prosperity crystals such as: * Aventurine *Citrine *Pyrite * Jade *Emerald I have journals and notebooks filled with positive affirmations, and books on prosperity and abundance such as Deepak Chopra’s ‘Creating Affluence.’ Whenever I have a limiting and negative thought, I can clear my mind and consciously change the thought (thoughts are things.) ALL of the things I do affect the positive flow of prosperity into my life, however, I still have issues around survival and a part of me feels it cannot get ahead and...
