3 Crystals to Help You Through Mercury Retrograde

 

I was on a long distance road trip over the Easter holiday. I exited the highway about a mile from my destination, when my car decided to just completely stop functioning. We got the car towed to an auto shop, and I was not surprised to see that the lot was overflowing with broken-down vehicles–other victims of Mercury retrograde! Mercury retrograde officially began on April 9th and ends on May 3rd. But it is possible for you to have felt the effects as early as March 23rd, which marked the beginning of the pre-shadow period. We won’t be completely free of Mercury retrograde’s influence until the post-shadow period ends on May 21st. Mercury is a planet that governs communication, clear thought, travel, and truth. When this planet appears to go backwards in the sky during a retrograde, you can potentially experience hiccups in these key areas. Your thinking and communication can feel scattered, and you might experience glitches in your technology and transportation. It is also a time that supports revisiting and reviewing your past, so that you can tie up loose ends and move forward in a clear way after the retrograde. The good news is that it can all be managed by staying aware, going slowly and deliberately, and maintaining a good attitude. Luckily, there are three crystals that can beautifully support you through Mercury retrograde.

1. Sodalite

Sodalite is a beautiful stone that has deep to light blue color rays and areas of white Calcite. Some specimens can contain grey, yellow, green, or pink. Sodalite stimulates the mental body and brings order and organization to energy, thoughts, and words; and this makes it well suited to help counteract the effects of Mercury retrograde. Specifically, it enhances your faculties of rational thought, analysis, objectivity, and observation. It can help to clear mental confusion and old, rigid thought patterns that would block your ability to comprehend things in a newer and truer way. Sodalite also sharpens your psychic vision and intuition, helping you to see situations from multiple levels of reality and to draw accurate conclusions.  It awakens the third eye chakra and expands your spiritual awareness.

 

Sodalite also has a peaceful and relaxing quality to it. Placed in your home or work place, it can assist in creating a more tranquil and serene environment. It can calm and unwind uncomfortable emotional states, such as fear, stress, anxiety, guilt, and anger. Sodalite can also help to relax a revved up mind so that you can more easily move into an altered, meditative state. According to crystal experts, Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian, meditating with Sodalite opens the subconscious to help heal wounds from the past. Mercury retrograde provides the perfect energetic opportunity to go deep with this kind of inner healing work.

 

Sodalite is also a great stone for the throat chakra and communication. It is recommended for writers, teachers, public speakers, and channelers who bring through higher messages during healing and psychic work. The thyroid is the gland that is associated with the throat chakra, and many people have reported that working with Sodalite consistently can boost its functioning. According to Melody, author of Love is in the Earth, Sodalite can help you to verbalize your emotions and to speak your truth in a clear and loving way. This becomes extra important during Mercury retrograde, when communication can become challenged.

2. Howlite

 

With all of the potential glitches that Mercury retrograde can cause, it is always useful to have a stone like Howlite on hand to ease the frustration. Howlite is a soothing white or cream-colored stone with grey veins running through it. You might have noticed that you (and everyone around you) can become more agitated during the Mercury retrograde period, especially when faced with technical problems and communication mishaps. You have to really slow down and dig deeply for patience, and Howlite can assist you on both fronts. I would recommend keeping some Howlite with you during the retrograde, because it can absorb and eliminate stress, anger, irritation, anxiety, and negative energy that you are experiencing internally or receiving from others. Howlite can calm down your thoughts and feelings, helping you to take a deep breath before acting (or overreacting). It can help you to remain objective and clear-headed, so that you can prevent an issue from escalating while accessing potential solutions.

 

Howlite is a stone that expands awareness and refines communication, both of which are very helpful things during Mercury retrograde. It fosters a connection with the higher realms and taps you into spiritual wisdom and realizations. If ghosts from your past are resurfacing during Mercury retrograde, Howlite can bring in more spiritual awareness about any unhealed issues that need to be resolved. It can help you tune into other lifetimes, where a pattern may have originated that is affecting you now, so that you can understand and clear it. Sometimes it is necessary to compassionately communicate your truth in order to heal and clear old issues. Howlite helps you to calmly and clearly express yourself in a productive way that honors all parties. During Mercury retrograde, when wires are easily crossed, hang onto your Howlite to help with all of your important communications.

3. Pyrite

When Mercury is causing things to go haywire in your reality, grounding, protection, and focus all become especially important. Pyrite, also known as Fool’s Gold, is a powerful, iron-bearing mineral that naturally forms in the sacred geometry shapes of the cube and the dodecahedron. When my car died in the middle of the street, I was wishing that I had a Pyrite with me. (And as soon as I get my car back, I plan on affixing a Pyrite cube to my dashboard.) The iron content in Pyrite keeps you very grounded, connected, and present in the moment, so that you can effectively deal with the situation at hand. It also keeps the auric field anchored and in tact during any kind of shock to your system, as it seals and repairs any resulting damage. Iron-bearing stones are also some of the best stones for energetic protection–especially when they are in the shape of a cube. Pyrite is known as a top protection stone that can shield you from all forms of danger, negativity, and harmful energy.

 

The sacred geometry that Pyrite forms in gives it some very useful qualities for Mercury retrograde. The cube and the dodecahedron have a stabilizing effect on your consciousness and energy, ordering and focusing your thoughts. This can beautifully counteract the scattering effect of Mercury retrograde on your mental body and communication. Pyrite will keep you sharp, so that you don’t miss any important details in contracts, business, or other areas where you need to comprehend the fine print. It also vitalizes your physical and mental energies, while boosting your attitude, confidence, and manifestation power. Having a positive, empowered attitude will serve you in shining through any challenge that might be thrown your way.

 

In conclusion, here are my other tips for surviving Mercury retrograde:

  1. Realize that it is temporary. Mercury is the planet closest to the sun, making its retrograde period the shortest of all of the planets. It will be over before you know it. Focus on the light at the end of the tunnel!
  2. See Mercury retrograde as a gift or an opportunity. Whatever comes up for you during this time is part of your soul’s plan for healing and forward movement. If your computer breaks, maybe it is time to get a new and better one. If an old lover contacts you again out of the blue, it might be a chance to clear and heal the past. Be open to a positive interpretation of events.
  3. When things go wrong, you can just blame Mercury retrograde! Ok, I am mainly kidding, because I do believe in taking personal responsibility for what happens in your life. However, sometimes it helps to lighten the energy when you can laugh about things and chalk it up to outside forces. Let yourself off the hook and blame the cosmos. If it makes you feel better, why not?

I hope you ease through the rest of Mercury retrograde, and I know that Sodalite, Howlite, and Pyrite will be a big help. If you need a good online source for purchasing these crystals, visit crystalsbynature.com.

7 Brilliant Ways to Work with Citrine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a confession to make. I have been having a love affair with Citrine for almost two decades now, and we are very happy together. Holding one is like touching the sun itself. Its energy is like crystallized sunbeams that vitalize your cells, outlook, energy, and entire being. Citrine can burn through clouds of negative energy, thoughts, and emotions like a laser, clearing the way for your soul to shine through.

It is also a genie in a bottle crystal, a wish granter. If it wasn’t for Citrine, I don’t think I would be a professional crystal healer today. I needed to manifest enough money to be able to quit my job and get my crystal healing certification. I sat and meditated with a large, radiant Citrine crystal one day, and I asked for a money miracle. A month later, I got one—an unexpected infusion of cash, big enough to allow me to pursue my dreams! Many people have similar stories. As long as your wish is aligned with your highest good and path, Citrine can help speed up its manifestation.

You can never have too many Citrine crystals, and luckily Citrine is affordable and readily available. Once you have a stockpile of Citrine crystals, the question is this: How do you work with them to get results? Here are my top suggestions.

 

  1. Program Citrine to manifest abundance or whatever your heart desires. Citrine has been historically recognized a powerful magnet for money and prosperity. Because it is one of the best crystals for activating the solar plexus chakra, Citrine enhances your ability to manifest anything you truly want—love, health, a new home, etc. The best way I have found to manifest something fast is to program a Citrine crystal with my desired outcome. Because Citrine belongs to the quartz family, it can hold thought-forms or intentions that you place in them, amplify them, and constantly transmit a magnetic energy to bring them into your life. This is due to the missing lattice theory, which states that the structure of quartz occasionally has a missing silicate atom. This space acts as a black hole, which can hold and store the energy of your intent.

Here’s a simple method for programming a Citrine crystal that works like a charm. Think about what it is that you would like to manifest, and write it down in the form of a present tense affirmation—as if you already have it. (An example, “I now make a fortune doing what I love.”) It is also a good idea to add this phrase to the end of your affirmation: “This, or something better, manifests easily if it is for my highest good.”

Cleanse the Citrine using sage, running water, sound, sunlight, or whatever method you prefer. Hold the Citrine crystal in your dominant hand, and speak or mentally project your affirmation into the crystal. Repeat the affirmation several times until you feel a click or shift, or you get the message that the crystal has taken the program. Normally, a crystal will be successfully programmed after you repeat the affirmation between eight and twelve times.

Once programmed, you can keep the Citrine in your energy field (in your pockets or within two feet of your body), allowing it to continuously affect your energy and consciousness. Perhaps the most powerful way to benefit is to spend some regular time meditating with it. You can place the Citrine on your solar plexus chakra, located a couple of inches above the navel, and visualize your affirmation coming true. Picture it in vivid detail and feel all of the positive emotions associated with manifesting exactly what you want. The next thing you know, it will be so!

 

  1. Take a Cleansing Citrine Bath. Citrine is a secret weapon for clearing all forms of negative energy that might be affecting you: lower thoughts and emotions, EMF’s from technology, attachments, entities, and psychic debris in your aura and energy system. Citrine can absorb and then transmute this negative energy into positive energy. Wearing Citrine jewelry or placing Citrine over the chakras will help to clear your bio-system. But perhaps my favorite method is to take a cleansing Citrine bath. It is a pleasant and effective way to treat all of your chakras and your entire aura simultaneously. All you really need is one Citrine crystal and access to a bathtub, but a few cups of salt and a few drops of purifying essential oil is also a nice touch.

Program a Citrine crystal with the following intention, “All of my chakras, meridians, subtle bodies, and my aura and entire bio-energetic system is now completely cleansed of all negative energy.” Once you have programmed your Citrine with this intention, you can reuse it for future baths with no need to reprogram it.

Fill the bathtub with warm water. Place the Citrine in the tub, and allow it to charge the water with your cleansing intention. (Make sure that it is not scalding hot to avoid damaging the Citrine.) You can add epsom or sea salt, which also helps to absorb negative energy. There are many essential oils that also have a purifying effect, such as Frankincense, Juniper, Lavender, Rosemary, and Sage. Adding a few drops can enhance the experience. Soak and relax in the tub for about 20 minutes, and when you emerge you will be crystal clear and sparkly.

 

  1. Create a Citrine grid for positive energy and protection in your home or office. Citrine will radiate positive, elevating energy wherever you place it, while clearing and protecting your space. A beautiful idea is to create a simple grid with Citrine crystals. A crystal grid is a network of stones placed into a pattern and activated with your intention. Building one creates a powerful force field that structures and patterns the energy of your environment, positively affecting all who are exposed to it. You could create a crystal grid around your house, in your yard. You might feel like you just need to grid one specific room of your home or office, or perhaps you want to grid all of the rooms individually. You will need a Citrine crystal for each corner and a Selenite wand or a terminated (pointed) Clear Quartz crystal to activate the grid.

Here’s how to grid a room in your home or office. Cleanse all of the crystals before you begin, and then place one Citrine crystal in each corner of the room. Hold the Selenite or Quartz in your dominant hand, and state your intention for the grid: “I activate this grid to keep the energy of this room clear, high, positive, and protected at all times.” Use the Selenite or Quartz crystal as a wand to connect all of the crystals in your grid. Start at one corner, and point it at the Citrine crystal. Then walk around the perimeter of the room while pointing the wand at the floor, and pause for a second at each Citrine in the network. Do this three times. Your grid will stay activated as long as the crystals remain in place. Enjoy the good vibes!

 

  1. Give your body and energy a boost. Have you been burning the candle at both ends? If you are feeling drained and fatigued, Citrine can revitalize you. It is a vibrant energy source that can recharge your batteries, since it boosts your metabolism, endocrine system, and all physical body systems. Put down the Starbucks, and try this simple Citrine technique to rev you up:

Place a Citrine crystal directly over your root chakra, located at the base of your spine or pubic bone area. Your root chakra regulates your physical body, stamina, vitality, and general energy levels. Placing Citrine there for at least fifteen minutes will give this chakra and your body a boost. If your adrenals are fatigued, or if your thyroid function is low, you could also place a Citrine directly over these glands for fifteen minutes. After you do this exercise, I suggest wearing Citrine jewelry or keeping it in your pockets to sustain your energy levels throughout the day.

 

  1. Awaken your crown chakra and intuitive abilities. Citrine manifests in the golden ray, which is a crown chakra color. Located at the top of your head, the crown chakra is the gateway to your higher self, higher dimensions, and source energy. Citrine has a natural activating effect on the crown chakra, and when placed there it will strengthen your spiritual connection and higher dimensional access. Citrine also boosts the endocrine system, so it can be used to activate the pineal and pituitary glands. When these glands are activated to a higher level, your psychic and intuitive abilities are enhanced.

There’s a simple Citrine meditation you can do to awaken your spiritual connection and abilities. Lie down, and place a Citrine crystal at the crown chakra. Relax and come into a meditative space, then visualize golden light from the higher dimensions pouring into the top of your head. Intend that it is flowing into the pituitary gland, located in the center of your head, and also into the pineal gland, located above and behind the pituitary gland. Call in your higher self, and ask to receive a spiritual activation that is perfect for you. Meditate for about fifteen minutes, and be open to receiving any messages, visions, and impressions.

 

  1. Use Citrine as a natural anti-depressant. Are you experiencing grief, emotional pain, and sadness from a recent loss? Maybe disappointing life situations have left you feeling emotionally heavy, suck, numb, or hopeless. Do not despair, because Citrine can help if you feel like you are shrouded in a grey cloud. Citrine can shine its bright light into the darkest corners of your emotional body, transmuting lower emotional states and restoring your hope and optimism.

If you are feeling blue, place a Citrine crystal over the heart chakra, located at the center of your chest. Hold your hands over the Citrine, breathe, and hold the intention that any negative energy and emotions are being completely absorbed and transformed by the Citrine. If you are sensitive to energy, you will probably feel this happening. Leave the Citrine in place for about fifteen minutes, and feel yourself becoming lighter with each passing minute. I also suggest wearing a Citrine pendant over the heart chakra to continuously beam energetic support and healing into the emotional body.

 

  1. Wear Citrine jewelry when you need to shine. We all have those moments in life when we need to dazzle others with our brilliance and light. Perhaps you have a big presentation to give at work, a job interview, an important social event, or a first date. If you have a golden opportunity knocking on your door, and you need to project your best, most confident self, adorn yourself with Citrine jewelry. Citrine has a way of banishing anxiety and self-doubt. It helps you tap into your personal power and makes you to feel confident, capable, and enthusiastic. It can electrify your personality, enlivening your words and energy so that others are completely charmed. I used to get very anxious when doing public speaking in front of hundreds of people, until I started wearing a Citrine ring. Thanks to Citrine, I have learned to feel at home and shine on stage, and it can do the same for you.

As you can see, Citrine is one of the brightest stars in the mineral kingdom. Perhaps that is why I have an overabundance of Citrine crystals in my collection—more than any other crystal I own. With so many reasons and ways to work with it, I can absolutely justify my Citrine obsession. It is one addiction that I wholeheartedly recommend to you, and I know you’ll thank me for it.

Keep Calm, and Carry These Four Crystals During the Eclipse/Equinox Window

(Adrienne’s note: I wrote this article for crystalsbynature.com, a great online source for purchasing crystals!)

Energy experts are calling 2017 the year of the big reset. And right now we are in the middle of a cosmic window, punctuated by two eclipses and an equinox, which is bringing in especially intense, transformative energies. We had a set of eclipses in February, a lunar eclipse on the 11th and a solar eclipse on the 26th. Eclipses are always times of sudden, unexpected change that can shake up your life, especially if you have been sweeping problems under the rug. The veils are thinner during eclipse times, allowing you to tune into the unseen realms and to access your subconscious mind. The shockwaves of eclipses can be felt and experienced for up to six months after they occur, and they are ultimately a gift to help you hit the reset button in your life.

Many have reported that these recent eclipses felt more intense than past ones, and they are still experiencing uncomfortable symptoms. If you have been feeling drained, exhausted, emotional, anxious, and scattered, you are in good company. A lot of people have also been experiencing piercing headaches, as well as cold and flu symptoms. Our physical, emotional, and mental bodies are clearing and processing a lot, preparing us for the next big cosmic event—the equinox.

The equinox will arrive before we know it, on March 20th. In the northern hemisphere, it marks the first day of spring. It is a time when the day and night are equal in length, which imprints the energy of balance upon us. The spring equinox also signals a time of release, rejuvenation, rebirth, growth, creation, fertility, abundance, and new beginnings. And March 20th will be no ordinary equinox. Due to a convergence of other cosmic and astrological factors, I have heard it described as the most important and powerful equinox since the beginning of human existence!

Keep calm, and trust that the Universe is creating a benevolent energy template with the motion of planets and stars–divinely designed and orchestrated to move you forward and into alignment with your highest path. The eclipse energies are still at work to clear anything that is blocking you, so that you can step into a new era of spiritual growth, expansion, and blessings triggered by the upcoming equinox. Now is the perfect time to work in tandem with the cosmic energies to consciously release the old and focus on manifesting new, wonderful things. Luckily, there are four perfect crystals to help you gain the most traction and make quantum leaps during these shifting times.

10 Reasons Why Kyanite is an Essential Stone for Healing and Spiritual Growth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you ever wish you had a magic wand? Personally, I’d like one that can poof away unpleasant things, such as bills, anxiety, and cellulite. My ideal magic wand would also bestow metaphysical superpowers and beam me onto friendly starships. Though I have yet to find a magic wand like in the storybooks, the crystal kingdom has a version that comes close–the Kyanite wand.

Kyanite is a high vibration stone that has a striated structure, which means that it has parallel grooves or recesses down the length of the stone. These striations act as amplifying channels that transmit higher frequencies of light into the human auric field. Kyanite literally acts like a wand that can deliver refined, spiritual energy for clearing, healing, balance, activation, and upgrade. If you could only have one healing crystal in your collection, Kyanite would be an excellent, versatile choice. Here are ten reasons why:

 

  1. Kyanite clears blockages and corrects misalignments in all chakras, meridians, and subtle bodies. If you want to be healthy, vital, and spiritually connected, it all starts with your bio-energetic system. Blockages in the chakras and meridians can lead to health issues and stagnation on all levels. Luckily, Kyanite is versatile and can be used over any chakra or meridian point to clear it. Kyanite also moves the energy centers into proper alignment, as well as the different layers of the auric field. Working with it can ensure that your entire energy system is flowing and functioning properly.
  2. Kyanite seals and protects your auric field. Energetic protection is especially important right now, because a lot of negativity is coming up for humanity to face and heal. Kyanite seals your aura, mending any cracks and fissures. This ensures that you are not leaking energy or allowing in unwanted influences. Wearing Kyanite jewelry or keeping it nearby will establish a strong protective field around you.
  3. Kyanite can replenish your life-force energy or qi. A lot of people are feeling exhausted and drained lately, due to the powerful ascension energies that keep increasing. You can work with Kyanite over specific chakras that are depleted to quickly replenish the energy. You could also experiment with placing Kyanite blades at the thyroid and adrenal glands to give them a boost. Just keeping Kyanite in your energy field will help to restore your general energy levels and stamina.
  4. Kyanite helps you to release and heal deeply engrained emotional and mental patterns that keep you stuck. Do you find yourself in a repeating loop of negative thoughts, emotions, or beliefs? See if you can determine where they are located in your body, and work with Kyanite there to initiate a deep energetic purification. After the clearing is accomplished, Kyanite creates an energetic pathway to higher ways of thinking and feeling, so that you create a positive, lasting shift. It helps to rewire your subtle energetic circuitry so that you can maintain the new outlook and state of being.
  5. Kyanite is a mechanism for higher dimensional connection and spiritual upgrade. Kyanite is often described as a bridge to the higher realms. When you work with it above the head, it creates a channel or pathway for higher frequencies and light codes to be delivered into your bio-system. It is even known to expand your subtle energetic circuitry and to strengthen the nervous system so that you can receive and integrate increasing levels of light. Being able hold and process this light catalyzes an upgrade process for your psychic senses and spiritual gifts.
  6. Kyanite activates the third eye and crown chakras. It is perfect for awakening the higher chakras and bringing your psychic senses to a greater level of functioning. Regular work with Kyanite will increase your clairvoyance, clairaudience, intuition, and telepathy. You will have an easier time connecting with your spirit team and soul to receive guidance.
  7. Kyanite is one of the best stones for meditation, because it activates the causal chakra. When I was studying at Katrina Raphaell’s Crystal Academy for Advanced Healing Arts, we learned that Kyanite was the best stone for activating the causal chakra. The causal chakra is located right behind the crown chakra, at the place where your hair can create a spiral and where a baby’s soft spot is located. This is the area where you receive higher mental impressions from spiritual sources. When the causal chakra is fully activated, it is easier to move into higher meditative states and to hold onto the fleeting visions and information you receive.
  8. Kyanite has a calming and soothing effect on the emotions. Anxiety and stress are on the rise lately, as the planetary energy and pace of life continues to accelerate. Kyanite emits a peaceful energy that counteracts worry, panic, fear, and turbulent emotions. Stroking Kyanite’s striations can send a calming transmission through your being, helping to bring you back into a centered space.
  9. Kyanite enhances dreamwork. It is a wonderful practice to sleep with Kyanite under your pillow or on your bedside table. Not only will Kyanite help you fall asleep faster, it can also stimulate productive dreams that bring in solutions to your problems. It also assists you with lucid dreaming and astral travel. If you have problems remembering your dreams, Kyanite will help you to hold onto them upon awakening.
  10. Kyanite helps with channeling and communication. For those who channel spiritual messages and healing energy, Kyanite can take your abilities to the next level. It can turn up the volume on your radio to spirit so that you can hear, receive, and transmit more. Kyanite powerfully activates the throat chakra, your center of communication. It promotes heart-felt communication that helps to bridge different points of view.

As you can see, Kyanite is a multitasking stone that can help you on multiple levels of the being. It’s a beautiful channel for the light, helping you to clear, heal, and evolve yourself so that you can become the same–no magic wand required!

Crystal Divination: What Does 2017 Hold in Store for You?

What wonderful things are you going to create in 2017? Does this year hold an energetic pattern or trend that will guide your experiences? After consulting my crystal ball, I was guided to create this fun crystal divination game. It gives you an energetic forecast of the new year and insight into the inner workings of your soul. Here’s how to play:

Call in your higher self and move your consciousness into your heart. Take a few deep breaths, and then look a the image below. Which crystal are you most instinctively drawn to? Try not to analyze or think about it too much. Instead, allow in your higher guidance. Tune into your intuition, and feel out which one is calling to you the most. Once you have your number, look below the photo to access your mini crystal reading for 2017. (Having a hard time choosing just one? Try to narrow it down if you can. But go ahead and read the messages of any others you like, because they might also apply to you.) Enjoy, and remember that you always have the power to make your life beautiful!

Choose A Crystal (final)

 

 

1. Lemurian Sunrise Andara:  A New Dawn–Lemurian Awakening and Vibrant Energy for a Fresh Start.  Rise and shine! Brilliant new rays of light will shine upon you in 2017, inviting you to see the world and your life with fresh eyes. It’s time to leave the past behind and create a new chapter in your life. You are an advanced, dynamic, and gifted soul with a powerful mission to help make the world a better place. Life hasn’t always been easy, because you are on an accelerated course of healing and spiritual mastery. The Universe has recently given you at least one major challenge to help refine your heart, character, and soul. Here’s the good news: You have exceeded all expectations in dealing with it. Even if you haven’t always felt graceful in the process, the message is that your higher understanding of the situation, and your response to it, is right on track and has raised your light quotient. Old dynamics and patterns have been adequately transmuted in a fiery blaze, opening the door for new creations and experiences. This is the beginning of a bright era in your life, one that is infused with positive energy, spiritual awakenings, authenticity, and fun. 2017 is a 1 year in numerology, a time for new beginnings, and it is the perfect time to make significant life changes that will bring more passion into your everyday experience. You might need to take some time at the beginning of the year to rest and recharge your batteries after passing the tests of 2016. Portals are opening, and higher frequencies of light will be available to you this month that can revitalize and refresh your body, energy levels, and outlook. Visualize ruby-lava energy (the color of the Lemurian Sunrise Andara stone you just chose) and circulate it through your chakras and bio-energetic system as needed. Then you will be fully charged and ready to reinvent certain aspects of your lifestyle, moving your reality into a more authentic expression of your soul. You are encouraged to listen to your heart and to follow its truest yearnings and guidance. Make a conscious effort to daydream and to get in touch with ideas and inspirations that bring you joy and excitement. If there were no limiting factors, where would you choose to live? What would you like to contribute to the world? What change can you make to bring more joy, love, and fulfillment into your life? Getting clear on the answers to questions such as these will set in motion a chain reaction of synchronicities and opportunities that will positively transform your personal reality. Here’s another clue for you: Choosing this stone indicates that you are an old soul who has had several lifetimes in Lemuria. Lemuria was an ancient civilization that existed thousands of years ago in the Pacific. It was a paradise reality with a focus on love, unity, spirituality, and healing. 2017 ushers in a big Lemurian renaissance for you, a resurgence of the spiritual, psychic, and healing gifts you had in those lifetimes. Be open to this energy. Allow it to accelerate your spiritual growth and influence you to create your own version of a paradise lifestyle. Maybe your idea of paradise is to simply make certain aspects of your life more beautiful, such as your relationships, your home environment, your appearance, your soul. If you have always had paradise dreams of actually moving to a tropical island and enjoying glorious sunsets on the beach every day, it’s time to go for it! The wind is at your back this year, and your soul has the key to doors that were previously locked for you. Expect for things to fall into place like magic, as long as you stay in alignment. Get ready to co-create miracles, soul-inspired lifestyle shifts, major breakthroughs, and grand adventures that will land you in an entirely new energetic and physical territory by 2018.

2. Eudialyte: Upgrading your Psychic Senses and Perfecting the Heart. “Bzzzzzz.” What’s that sound? Is it that annoying ringing in your ears again? Maybe it’s a higher dimensional alarm clock trying to wake you up. Can you hear it yet? If not, chances are you literally might before the year is over. Your clairaudience (ability to hear multi-dimensionally) is coming online, along with your other psychic senses. You have always been a sensitive, intuitive soul who cares deeply about others and the world. You have spent lifetimes developing a beautiful, generous heart of gold. You have had incarnations as a monk, nun, or holy person, devoting yourself to service, compassion, and developing greater spiritual depth. You were also blessed with psychic and healing abilities in other lifetimes, and your gifts were sought after by many who heard of your powerful results. In this life, you have gone out of your way to help people in need–especially your loved ones. You have focused your love, prayers, energy, and time to assist with certain humanitarian causes and planetary issues, and it has made a bigger difference than you might realize. Your good deeds have been noticed in the Heavens! It has been decided that you are ready for more spiritual tools to expand your ability to help.  You wrote it into your current life blueprint–the potential for these extrasensory gifts to come back online and stronger than ever. And 2017 is your year to take it to the next level. You have at least one new spirit guide joining your team at the beginning of the year to prepare you. The first order of business will be turning that big heart of yours inward and working on self-love. As a sensitive, you naturally feel things deeply and might have some residual emotions from past experiences that you need to process and to lovingly release. Some of the lower emotions and pain you are carrying might not even be yours! You might have subconsciously absorbed it from others in an attempt to lighten their load. It is time to let go of anything that is burdening your heart. Allow your loving soul to grace you with the vibration of forgiveness, which has the power to transmute anything that is less than love. You might experience another benefit from this heart-healing work: an improved romantic life or the manifestation of a soul-mate relationship. Be open to that potential! As you make progress on clearing and perfecting your heart, the psychic upgrade process will begin. You might get headaches and other ascension symptoms during the activation of your higher chakras and subtle energetic circuitry. And don’t be alarmed if you experience neck and shoulder pain at times. This is a sign that your Zeal Chakra is activating and coming into a higher level of functioning. The Zeal Chakra (also referred to as “The Mouth of God” or “The Well of Dreams”) is located at the back of the neck and the base of the skull, where there is an indention. It regulates multi-dimensional telepathic communication. As your Zeal Chakra awakens, you will experience an increase in clairvoyance, clairaudience, astral travel, vivid dream-recall, healing abilities, empathy, and telepathy. It is suggested that you work with Eudialyte at the Zeal Chakra this year to assist this process, and be sure to rest as needed. An important thing to ask yourself now is what will you do with these enhanced abilities. The good news is that it will be easier to hear the answers and guidance from your soul. Make some time to meditate and tune in. If you already do work in the metaphysical field, you might be given a new role or more advanced techniques to offer. If you have a more traditional profession or role in life, you might be given ways to incorporate these gifts into what you do. Or perhaps you will get a nudge to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. For example, if you ever considered taking psychic development classes or having a booth at a weekend metaphysical fair, go for it and see what happens! You are destined to succeed, as you have in many other lifetimes. 2017 will be a landmark year for you, as you step more fully into you spiritual power and your heart. Welcome to the next level!

3. Ametrine: Soul Integration, Forward Movement, and Diplomacy. You are a sparkling, multifaceted being with diverse and harmonious gifts–much like this crystal. The color rays in Ametrine (purple and yellow) are opposite of each other on the color wheel, yet they come together in a beautiful, complimentary way. They do more than coexist. The contrast actually seems to enhance the vibrant energy inherent in of each color ray, producing synergy and amplified radiance. This year marks a time of bringing various soul aspects and gifts together in an integrated, cohesive way that will make you unstoppable. You have it all within you: a sharp intellect balanced with keen intuition, feminine grace balanced with masculine strength, childlike innocence balanced with ancient wisdom. In your soul’s quest to fully understand this reality from multiple perspectives, a choice was made to diversity your resume of incarnations. You have had lifetimes in various cultures, with different levels of wealth and privilege and a wide variety of roles, gifts, and vocations. Your soul path has made you a jack of all trades. You are capable of excelling in many different areas, however sometimes this can lead to confusion about who you are and which path is best for you. The good news is that it will all come together for you this year. Your soul will bring you flashes of clarity and inspiration, and your highest path with be illuminated in bright lights. If you have been following different tangents or getting lost in distractions, this tendency will phase out and be replaced with laser focus. If you have any self-defeating habits, addictions, or patterns that have been standing in your way, this is the year for you to clear them once and for all. It’s a forward-motion year for you. After achieving a space of greater clarity, be ready to receive a series of major soul downloads. They are designed to activate latent talents and metaphysical abilities, while also bringing in higher-perspective information and solutions. You will begin to integrate the higher aspects of your soul matrix that are most helpful and relevant to your current mission, giving you access to the most important things you learned and mastered in other lifetimes. This will translate into success in your chosen endeavors and the manifestation of wonderful things. You will start to see new ways to combine different gifts that will create amazing results. Expect positive developments in your career, finances, health, and relationships. You have talents in the area of diplomacy and conflict resolution that will come in handy this year. From one perspective, we are currently in a phase of collective evolution that is marked by polarity and divisiveness. People are divided into different camps based on politics, religion, gender, race, region, social status, and other factors. The tension between groups seems to become more exaggerated every year, as if it is coming to a boiling point. This is happening for a reason. It is time for us to grasp a higher truth–that we are all truly ONE on the higher levels of reality! We are stronger when we listen to each other and embrace our differences, love and respect one another, and work together for the common good. This isn’t easy for everyone to achieve, but it is one of your specialities. Since you have had such a diverse array of incarnations, you are adept at seeing things from many different perspectives. On a soul level, you know what it is like to be dirt poor, filthy rich, beautiful, disabled, biracial, Ivy League educated, illiterate, an atheist, a Fundamental Christian, a shaman, etc. This makes you well-suited to be a peacemaker or a mediator who helps disparate groups achieve more empathy and understanding of each other. Thank you for modeling the energy of Ametrine–for showing us how to bring together opposites in a harmonious way that creates beauty and synergy. You rock!

4. Optical Clear Quartz, Phi Dream Vogel: Anchoring Crystalline Reality–Upshifting People, Places, and the Planet. Your soul matrix has a crystalline-like perfection and elegance to it. It’s very radiant, coherent, organized, refined, and geometric–just like the crystal you chose. Clear Quartz Vogel crystals are sentient, precision-cut tools that can access, store, and transmit an expanded spectrum of light for clearing, healing, and spiritual activation work. They emanate patterns of perfection that have a beneficial and evolutionary effect on people, energies, and the environment. And so do you! You are a brilliant soul who, on a higher level, is an adept in the fields of sacred science and mathematics. The truest essence of your soul is a Divine Architect and a Healing Technician. You understand sacred design and work with the energetic templates underlying reality to heal distortions and to create new forms. In fact, you are destined to be a part of the Divine Intelligence that helps to design original blueprints for new planetary systems. You have spent countless lifetimes refining your soul in order to move toward this elevated level of creative responsibility. You have had incarnations at the height of advanced civilizations on Earth, such as in Ancient Egypt and Atlantis, and you were trained in cutting edge technology and techniques that blended science and spirit. Your Atlantean incarnations were a shining accomplishment, as you engineered novel and effective ways to work with crystals for healing, rejuvenation, and technological progress. Even if this feels far removed from what you do in this lifetime, this expertise is imprinted in you–especially your connection with the crystalline kingdom. You have been acting as a human crystal your entire life–absorbing, amplifying, and transmitting higher frequencies of light–whether you have been conscious of it or not. You are a natural healer who can sense subtle distortions in the energy flows of people, systems, and places. Your higher self also knows how to access and apply the right energies to correct the imbalances. When you sense that the energy is off, your soul responds with mathematical precision in the subtle reams to fix it. That is why people who are having issues are oftentimes inexplicably drawn to you. If you are already working in the metaphysical or healing field, you are likely doing this work on a very conscious level and have a long list of amazed clients. But even if you don’t, your soul is still bringing rarefied energy into your daily routine that heals, restructures, and perfects the people and places that you encounter. You make the world a brighter place, beautifying and harmonizing everything that crosses your path. At times, you might have to remind yourself not to go overboard with your perfectionist tendencies, and it can be hard for you to fully rest until everything is in its proper order. But that’s what makes you excel and rise to the top in all of your life endeavors. Your gifts will certainly be in demand this year. The Earth is in the midst of a grand ascension process. New and progressively higher cosmic frequencies will continue to come into our planetary sphere in 2017, causing big transformation and upshift across the board. You will serve as a human Vogel crystal, expanding your dimensional receptivity to access the highest spectrum of incoming stellar frequencies and codes. You will absorb, integrate, and organize this energy. And then you will radiate the perfect rays, in the perfect amounts, that are required at any given moment for positive results. Allow your soul to perfectly guide you in this. You might be called to travel to specific vortexes and power spots to help upshift the ley-lines and planetary grid system. Perhaps your role will be transmit the right frequencies to assist with political, environmental, or social issues happening in the world. Or maybe you will work one on one with people to help them heal and awaken. No matter what you are specifically guided to do, it is recommended that you incorporate crystals into your spiritual work and process. Crystals will focus and amplify your efforts, helping you to create quicker and more impactful results. You could take classes about building crystal grids, programming Quartz for manifestation, or performing crystal healing sessions. But you have such a natural connection with the mineral kingdom that all you really need to do is tune in and listen. The crystals themselves will tell you how to best work with them. Thank you for being a true gem, one who is destined to help anchor crystalline reality for the planet in 2017.

5. Astrophyllite: “Walk In” and Wake Up to Your Galactic Mission. Hang on tight! It’s 2017, and things are about to get weird. But you’ll be OK, because weird is actually your comfort zone. Admit it, you find a lot of things about life to be a bit tedious and boring–like paying bills, cleaning house, preparing food, and generally maintaining your 3-D reality. Where are the replicators from Star Trek? Why do we have to get frisked by airport security and spend hours traveling in primitive airplanes when we could just jump into a portal and arrive in moments? These feelings are the price you pay for being a Starseed. A Starseed is an advanced soul who has had incarnations in other galaxies and solar systems, and on other planets. Choosing Astrophyllite indicates that you are one. As a Starseed, you are an accelerator of evolution. You have otherworldly, metaphysical abilities that become activated at the right time to serve the ascension of Earth and humanity. 2017 is one of the turning-point moments that you programmed into your life blueprint for a big activation of your abilities. It’s coming, and fast! You might already be well on your path, using your otherworldly spiritual gifts in planetary service. Or you might just be waking up to all of this stuff. Either way, expect a monumental upshift in your awakening and capabilities this year. You will likely gain a greater awareness of the Galactic aspects of your soul. Spending time in meditation might trigger conscious recall of lifetimes spent in other planetary systems (such as Arcturus, the Pleiades, or Andromeda) and what you learned and mastered there. There is a strong probability that you will take it a step further and have a walk-in experience. In your case, you would not experience the kind of walk-in where your soul leaves your body and is replaced by an entirely new soul. Yours would be an Oversoul walk-in, which involves a higher expression of your own soul essence stepping it’s frequency down to merge and integrate with your body and consciousness. Think of it this way: Your physical body is a finite vessel that can only hold a certain percentage of the vast amount of energy that makes up your Oversoul. Having an Oversoul walk-in is a way to send a more upgraded version of your own soul essence into your body. And in this case, the upgraded version carries your Starseed consciousness and abilities. That’s a lot to take in, literally! So expect a period of disorientation and adjustment that might last a few weeks or longer. The first order of business will be a necessary clean up project. You might have noticed that this planet has a few problems right now. As somebody who came here on a mission, you have willingly taken on some of the lower patterns and tendencies that are playing out here. You did this with the full knowledge that you would overcome them, and by doing so you are helping to transmute them for all of humanity. It is part of your path of service. You will be plunged into a process of facing any remaining shadow aspects in your life that still need healing. It might feel as if you are going through the dark night of the soul as old patterns, fears, thoughts, addictions and negative ways of being surface to be cleared. But don’t worry, because this new walk-in part of you is a master who will power you through it. It is suggested that you work with Astrophyllite to accelerate this healing process. Once you are on the other side of it, you will have a renewed sense of self and access to more of your power than ever before. Then it will be time to rock! Your job will be to maintain a daily, conscious connection with your soul and to follow any guidance you are given. You might be called to write a groundbreaking spiritual book, get involved in politics to change the system, invent technology to clean up environmental pollution, create a new healing modality, or simply to shower every bit of this Earth with the frequencies of pure love. Who knows what your mission is? Oh yeah, you do! Let your own masterful ET soul be your guiding star to amazing new horizons.

6. Ancient Hongshan Skull: Reawakening Ancient Knowledge, the Goddess Principles, and Your Shamanic Superpowers. You have something in common with this astounding ancient artifact that just grabbed your attention. She invites you to open your ancient eyes and take a look into the mirror she provides. You are Divine Consciousness, housed and reflected in 3-D form. You are a sacred vessel, made of Earth and imprinted by the stars, holding ancestral knowledge and Divine blueprints deep within your crystalline bones. This skull is a magical relic of the Neolithic, Chinese Hongshan culture that existed over five thousand of years ago. It was a matriarchal, Goddess-based, shamanic civilization that is shrouded in mystery. The Hongshan exhibited a sophisticated grasp of science, math, and astronomy, and they even built one of the first pyramids. They also left behind a treasure trove of unusual stone carvings and artifacts depicting goddesses, stylized skulls, dragons, and even various alien races!  It begs you to question the source of their artistic inspiration. This Hongshan skull that you selected is quite animated and has an insightful channeled message just for you, “Dear Ancient One, I recognize your magical and timeless vibration, and I reflect it back to you so that you can more clearly see yourself. Eons ago, before recorded history, your bright soul entered the Earth plane like a shooting star. You were a part of the first wave of souls to volunteer your participation in the saga of human experience on Earth. You have taken on countless different forms, bodies, and expressions–all with one underlying goal: to explore the mystery and to learn how to transcend limitations. As such, you have had many lifetimes in which you earned the title of High Priest/Priestess, Magician, Sage, and Shaman. Place your hand over your heart now, and tune into the shamanic drumbeat that has guided your sacred dance of incarnations. Ride the sound waves, following the beat back to a time that predates anything your historians can clearly piece together. Let’s travel back to an era in which magic was mainstream and the Goddess was honored, like in the Hongshan period. The air was fresh, sweet, and unpolluted. You lived life wrapped in the holy essence of nature. You understood that everything you saw, touched, and tasted was infused with Divine energy and consciousness–the plants, the rivers, the rocks, the animals–everything! You knew that you were intimately connected to your environment, and all parts of creation had a purpose and deserved honor and respect. You lived life in accordance with the Goddess principals. This allowed you to thrive in harmony with your surroundings and to learn about your Divine nature via the living library. Can you remember what that felt like? If not, there’s still hope for you. I mean, you are listening to me right now, and I happen to be a rock with a face carved on it! But seriously, I am trying to jog your soul memory for a good reason. Visionary author, Barbara Marciniak, channeled a key message in her book, Earth, that I really want you to get: Information is stored in stone and bone. The ancient crystal skulls (like myself) are cosmic libraries that have been deliberately programmed with the records of the Universe, the codes of ascension, and vast amounts of data beyond what you can currently imagine. The cranial shape of these libraries is not an accident or an artistic choice, but a practical part of the design to help you access the data. Did you know that the human bone structure has long been recognized as a solid crystalline structure with piezoelectric properties? There is scientific evidence that suggests that your crystalline bone structure acts as an antenna for external and internal vibratory energy and information. Your own cranium can come into harmonic resonance with an ancient crystal skull, unlocking the energetic records and escorting it all into your conscious awareness. Information is stored in stone and bone! I would like to add that it is also stored in plants, animals, and all parts of nature–and your shaman soul knows this well. The mission I give you for 2017 is to remember how to use the Divine instrument of your body to access your ancient knowledge, akashic records, and spiritual superpowers. It is all within you! Work with a crystal skull, or tap into my energy transmission via this photo, to help trigger an awakening and an archaic revival of the Shamanic and Goddess principles. Then widely share what you learn in an effort to help heal and restore world.”

3 Ascension Crystals for These Transformative Times

Buckle up, and open your heart! This entire year has felt like a lesson in energetic acceleration and intensity, as our physical bodies are adjusting to progressively higher frequencies of light. And we are just getting started. September brings us two eclipses (one on September 1st and the other on the 16th), the equinox on September 22nd, and the 9-9-9 portal–not to mention that we are in Mercury retrograde for most of the month. Eclipses are always times of big shake-up, reset, and expanded dimensional receptivity. The fall equinox imprints us with the energetic theme of balance and encourages us to clear and release the old. It is also a time in which the veils are thinner and our psychic senses are heightened. September 9th is a power date that marks a major personal and planetary completion–a time of wrapping up old business and aligning with a brand new cycle.

 

So if you are waiting for things to calm down, you might be out of luck. We are in the midst of the ascension process, and it looks like the beautiful Universe will continue to move us along by showering us with ever-increasing levels of light. Welcome to the new normal! Take a deep breath, and feel this truth in your heart: You came here to rock this cosmic opportunity and to be a part of the change–and you are doing better than you might think! You are growing and contributing to the collective in beautiful ways through all of your experiences. The key to navigating this intense month is to stay in your heart, to be as loving and gentle as possible with yourself and with others. Take time out to meditate and tune in to your higher self, and make an effort to support your body as it adjusts to all of the energetic shifts. There are three crystals that are perfect to work with in September and beyond to keep your vibration high, clear, balanced, loving, and aligned with ascension.

 

1. Pietersite:

Pietersite cab

Pietersite is one of the best stones for supporting and upgrading your entire bio-system during big cosmic events, such as eclipses and equinoxes. It is a beautiful stone with flashing color rays of deep blue, gold, brown, and grey that can activate the higher chakras and the solar plexus. Pietersite can ground higher frequencies of light into the body, and it helps to expand the spectrum of light that you can successfully integrate. It does so by strengthening the nervous system and brain, so that you can safely process more energetic input. Considering the big influxes of cosmic energy we keep getting, I highly recommend this stone to help your system keep up.

 

Pietersite is also known to activate the higher glands, the pituitary and pineal, to create balance in the entire endocrine system. On a physical level, this helps to regulate hormones that affect metabolism, the reproductive system, blood pressure, and other biological processes. On an energetic level, it awakens and sharpens your intuition and psychic senses. Working with Pietersite at the third eye will enhance meditation, visionary experiences, telepathy, and higher dimensional connection. Since it simultaneously activates the solar plexus (your center of will power and manifestation), it can help you to more consciously direct your psychic experiences and journeys. September gives us many windows of time in which the veils are thinner, making it a good time to meditate with Pieteresite to manifest healing, enlightenment, and positive breakthroughs.

 

According to Naisha Ahsian, co-author of The Book of Stones, Pietersite resonates with storm energy. It has a powerful cleansing effect on the chakra system, the meridians, and entire auric field. It is especially useful for clearing out pent-up, emotional energy that has been trapped in your system. The fall equinox marks a time of letting go, and the 9-9-9 portal is about completion. Pietersite will help you to release all types of stagnant energy, old patterns, and blockages that you don’t want to carry forward into the next phase.

 

2. Watermelon Tourmaline

watermelon tourmaline

Healing and refining your emotional body is the fastest ticket to higher dimensional living, and Watermelon Tourmaline is a beautiful choice for all matters of the heart. It is an elevating, striated gemstone that aligns with joy and Divine love, and it contains both the green and pink rays. Watermelon Tourmaline helps us to balance and integrate polarities, especially masculine and feminine energies; and balance is a big theme of the upcoming equinox. Pink Tourmaline is a pure carrier of the feminine ray. It enhances the feminine qualities inherent in all of us: nurturing, receptivity, intuition, allowing, flowing, and cooperation. Green Tourmaline is a pure bearer of the masculine ray. It fortifies our masculine qualities, such as ambition, action, passion, stimulation, analytical thinking, and providing.  Although pink and green are almost perfect opposites on the color wheel, the two colors come together in Watermelon Tourmaline and compliment each other in such a beautiful and pleasing way. They do more than coexist. The contrast actually seems to enhance the vibrant energy inherent in each color ray. The pink shines brighter next to the green, and vice versa. The combination produces synergy, an energy field of wholeness and amplified radiance that influences each of us to achieve the same.

 

Watermelon Tourmaline is the perfect gemstone for activating the higher heart, since it contains both heart chakra colors and has a naturally high vibration. Located a few inches about the heart chakra, the higher heart connects you to higher levels of love–in the spectrum of Divinity, the soul plane, and higher dimensional realities. Activating your higher heart helps you to connect to more evolved forms of love that exist beyond 3D. It is a love that is accepting–without conditions, fears, lower emotional tendencies, or the need to control. It is the quality of love that helps you to forgive others, and yourself, so that you can truly heal from past emotional hurts.

 

Watermelon Tourmaline has a high lithium content, which contributes to its heart healing, activating, and elevating energy. Lithium helps you to achieve a higher state of consciousness by naturally activating your third eye and intuition. It also has a calming and centering effect on the emotions. This makes Watermelon Tourmaline conducive to achieving meditative states, helping you to raise your heart and consciousness to the soul plane. Lithium also relieves lower emotional states such as panic, stress, anxiety, and depression. Working with Watermelon Tourmaline assists you in moving beyond these conditions so that you can get in touch with your higher feeling nature. Watermelon Tourmaline radiates pure joy and bliss, a vibration that can transcend and transmute all forms of negativity.  During these transformative times, It is a perfect companion to help you heal emotional issues, balance all aspects of your being, and embody higher rays of Divine love.

 

3. Charoite 

Charoite

Charoite is one of the best stones to turn to when you are going through a major transformation process, since it can assist you on multiple levels of the being. It is a beautiful stone to behold, with undulating shades of purple punctuated by black, white, and grey inclusions. The purple ray works with the higher chakras to bring in higher dimensional light for spiritual and psychic activation, and the black manganese inclusions have a grounding and balancing effect on the physical and emotional bodies.

 

Like Pietersite, Charoite can help you adjust to higher energies, assisting your body to safely process, regulate, and ground them. This helps you to not get overloaded or overwhelmed by big influxes of light, which are prevalent in these times. If these higher energies are not properly processed by the physical body, uncomfortable physical ascension symptoms can result, such as headaches, digestive imbalances, dizziness, and fatigue. Charoite can help to prevent and relieve these symptoms. Charoite strengthens and heals multiple systems of the body and can even help to transform illnesses into wellness.

 

The key to Charoite’s healing and transformative power is its ability to highlight the underlying causes and patterns that lead to imbalance. It brings the root causes into your conscious awareness, so that you can make necessary changes to correct them. It works with the heart to expand your love and self-acceptance, which is a catalyst for healing. It also lends the purple ray to help you clear and transmute them on a energetic level. Charoite has a powerful cleansing effect on the auric field, the chakras, and the emotions.  It especially helps to release fear patterns that prevent forward movement. Now is the perfect time to do this deep-level healing and clearing, while the eclipses, equinox, and 9-9-9 portal are providing supportive energy.

 

Energy reports keep coming out that say the final months of 2016 will be our most powerful yet. Remember, you’ve got this! Slow down, breathe, and practice good self care. Reach for love, and for these three crystals, to help carry you through it all with ease and grace.

Three Crystals for Clearing Your Energy

Many of us have caught on to the idea that there’s something special about this lifetime. There’s an urgency to go for the gold and to make it count. Due to a convergence of cosmic factors and increasing planetary light levels, we are on an accelerated course of spiritual evolution. It can feel as though we are accomplishing several lifetimes worth of lessons in the span of just a few years. To awaken more of the gifts and superpowers of our souls, we have to do the dirty work—we have to cleanse and clear the old belief systems, emotions, patterns, and blockages that are holding us back. And we have to maintain a level of energetic clarity to allow the light to flow and reside within our bio-energetic systems. I think I have an energetic allergy to brooms, mops, Mr. Clean, and SOS pads. Just the thought of my cleaning supplies makes me dizzy and weak, and I find that I just can’t seem to get off the couch. Luckily, it is easy to keep your energy clean and sparkly with beautiful, safe, and natural tools—crystals! There are literally hundreds of crystals and stones that can have a clearing effect, but I’d like to share with you my top three recommendations for some serious deep cleaning.

1. Covellite

Covellite-300x168-300x168

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Covellite a metallic, indigo stone that resonates with the third eye chakra and has a powerful vacuum cleaner effect for your mind, body, and spirit. It has a specialty of clearing the higher chakras and spiritual levels of the being. Covellite gets to the karmic root of issues that are plaguing you, and it can assist in clearing thought-forms and beliefs from this life and from other lifetimes. It brings greater understanding of why certain situations have manifested in your life based on your entire soul history. Covellite then brings in higher dimensional healing energy to clear and transform these patterns once and for all. In addition to clearing your energy, Covellite awakens your psychic and spiritual gifts to a higher level, making it a must-have stone for these times.

 

Covellite is called the blue healer. It has the kind of vibrational flexibility that allows it to connect to the highest levels of the being, while also reaching into the gross physical level and assisting with healing miracles in the body. Melody, author of Love is in the Earth, suggests it to support the healing of cancer. I have personally seen Covellite help a client to beat cancer, and I believe that it is just as effective with other serious illnesses that have a karmic cause. It can have a detoxifying effect and can support healing on a cellular level.

2. Dioptase

Emerald green dioptase crystals on white background

Dioptase is a green copper silicate stone with sparkling energy and powerful cleansing effects—especially on an emotional level. If you have experienced or are experiencing any abuse, trauma, or unpleasant emotional events in your family, or have interpersonal relationships that feel karmic or dense, Dioptase can help! Dioptase can make you aware of any emotional attachments, cords, contracts, or blockages and where they are located. It leads you to identify what is going on and to dissolve and clear these negative patterns and cords. The clearing that Dioptase does can ripple through several lifetimes at once, and can even clear genetic patterns.

 

Since Dioptase contains both copper and silica, it works in an even deeper and more powerful way and really gets to the root cause of issues. Once you can see the higher truth behind an emotional blockage or cord, it becomes easier to forgive and release the entire situation. As a side effect of clearing these stubborn cords and emotional blockages, you might also experience physical body healing.

 

3. Shungite

Shungite is a miracle stone from Russia that is about two billion years old. It contains rare fullerene molecules. Fullerenes are molecular carbon cages that form into the sacred geometrical shape of the dodecahedron. They were recently discovered in the 1990s, and scientists are still determining the multitude of applications of fullerenes in fields such as nanotechnology, healthcare, and environmental sciences. Many sources say that fullerene molecules are detoxifying, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and can assist in healing a wide range of physical complaints. Working with Shungite can therefore speed up the natural physical healing process, and it also offers pain relief.

 

As a crystal healer, I am quite impressed with its clearing, purification, and protection qualities. It neutralizes many forms of negative energy, including lower emotions and thought-forms, toxins of all kinds, and EMFs. Scientists have demonstrated that Shungite can significantly decrease the detrimental effects of cell phone radiation on the human body. Shungite is also used in Russian water purification systems to remove harmful substances such as bacteria, pesticides, heavy metals, and pharmaceuticals. It can correct many imbalances in the auric field and in the emotional body, while enhancing vitality and general well-being.

How to Work with These Stones

Wearing one or more of these stones in the form of jewelry or carrying them in your pockets is a good way to keep your energy clear throughout the day. Or if you feel like you really need to do some deep release work, here is a technique you could use that puts them all together. Begin by obtaining one Covellite, one Dioptase, and one Shungite. Cleanse them, and then call in your higher self and spirit team. Ask them to assist you in clearing what no longer serves you and creating highest good and outcome. Place the Covellite over the third eye chakra, located at the center of your forehead. Next, place the Dioptase over the heart chakra, located at the center of your chest, and then place the Shungite at the root chakra (public bone area).

 

After the stones are in place, bring your attention to the Covellite at the third eye, and hold this intention in mind: “I am now ready to become aware of any lower thought forms, mental patterns, and beliefs that are holding me back.” Take some more deep breaths, and just allow your higher self and the Covellite to surface what you need to know. You might have a memory surface from this life or another life that will reveal to you the energetic blockages or belief patterns you have been holding. You might just get a subtle feeling or knowing. Advice or guidance about how to shift it might also come to you. Be sure to take note and follow through with any ideas you might receive. It is also possible that you might not get anything significant on a conscious level, and that is OK, too. Trust that you are creating healing for yourself, and that it is unfolding perfectly for your highest good. Once you feel complete with receiving information, you can place your hands on the Covellite and hold the intention that it is absorbing any lower energy and patterns. If you are sensitive, you might even feel this happening.

 

Next, place your hands on the Dioptase at the heart chakra, and hold this intention in your mind: “I am now ready to acknowledge and clear any emotional attachments, cords, contracts, or blockages that are holding me back.” Once again, breathe deeply and allow any old emotions or relevant information to surface. You might feel a wave of unprocessed emotional energy from the past or become aware of unhealthy emotional dynamics that need to shift. Take note of any guidance you receive, and allow the Dioptase to absorb and clear anything that is not serving you on an emotional level.

 

Finally, place your hands over the Shungite at the root chakra, and hold this intention in your mind: “I am now ready to clear negative energy, entities, toxins, or EMFs that I may have picked up from my surroundings.” Take some deep breaths, and imagine that you are sending Shungite energy throughout your entire body and auric field. Visualize this energy neutralizing any negative energy that it touches, transmuting it into pure light. Leave the stones in place for at least fifteen minutes, and allow them to do their magic. Be sure to cleanse the stones after this exercise. May your energy and your life always be crystal clear!

Five Cosmic Crystals for Starseeds

Do you ever feel like the entire earth might as well be a foreign country to you? Perhaps your soul journey did not originate here, but on another planet instead. A Starseed is an advanced soul who has had incarnations in other galaxies and solar systems, and on other planets. If you are wondering if you might be a Starseed, here’s a list of some of the most common Starseed attributes:

 

  1. You experience a feeling of homesickness and don’t feel truly at home anywhere on Earth.
  2. You think or dream about UFO’s and extraterrestrials often, or you have actually seen UFO’s.
  3. You are very empathic and sensitive to your surroundings (lights, textures, sounds, toxins, temperatures, people, energies, etc.). You need alone time maintain your balance.
  4. Your body functions a bit differently, and medical doctors might not have answers for you.
  5. You have natural psychic, intuitive, healing, or metaphysical abilities.
  6. Children and animals are naturally drawn to you, but adults may be wary of you (unless they are open-minded or need healing and assistance of some kind).
  7. Life and society on Earth feels a bit limited, boring, and primitive. You have a hard time witnessing systems that harm the earth and people, and you can visualize a better way.
  8. You have always felt like an old soul who is different and who has an important mission, even if you don’t know exactly what it is.
  9. You are intelligent and excel at problem-solving, technology, or science.
  10. You experience quantum leaps in your growth, healing, and spiritual understanding. You get to new levels faster than most people.

 

Starseeds have otherworldly, metaphysical abilities that become activated at the right time to serve the ascension of Earth and humanity. The light codes, energetic signatures, experiences, and gifts from ET lifetimes are etched into the soul matrix of Starseeds. They are accelerators of evolution. It is their job to awaken and to understand their unique abilities, and to step into their role as an agent of transformation for others and for the word. If you are a Starseed who needs a little help in that department, there are five crystals that can awaken your stellar memories and gifts–helping you execute your mission like a rock star!

1. Blue Apatite

13244862_10208334097882492_1553271556826335112_n

Blue Apatite is a stone of psychic activation and cosmic connection that makes you clearer, brighter, and more tuned in. It is helpful to Starseeds who are awakening for several reasons. It has a pronounced clearing effect that has a refreshing, flowing quality to it. It clears chakra blockages, emotional states, deeply engrained patterns, and psychic debris in the aura. It has a balancing effect on the chakras and the layers of the auric field. And It can expand and sharpen all of the psychic senses (clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, claircognizance, telepathy, channeling, etc.). In meditation, Blue Apatite can help you to become a conscious time-traveler and to tune into your Akashic records. Imagine being able to clearly access your ET incarnations, bringing solutions and advanced knowledge into this now moment! If you work consistently with Blue Apatite, you can develop the clarity, balance, and psychic ability necessary to connect with your soul history and achieve this.

 

Blue Apatite is also recognized as a magnet for UFO’s and ET consciousness. Robert Simmons, co-author of The Book of Stones, says that Blue Apatite can attract the attention of the “blue-skinned beings,” and my personal experience confirms that it can help you tune into the blue ET races. Certain groups from Andromeda, Arcturus, the Pleiades, Sirius, and Vega are blue beings, and so are the Blue Avians. When inviting ET connection, I find that it is best and safest to call the parts of your own soul that are positively-oriented extraterrestrial, rather than sending out a general call to any aliens who might be flying around out there (for obvious reasons). Be crystal clear about who you want to connect with, and have a higher purpose for doing so. For example, I work with my Blue Apatite skull (pictured here) to bring in my own Pleiadian soul aspects for the purpose of healing work. And I have had some amazing results!

 

2. Moldavite:

Moldavite is a green tektite, known as the gemstone born from the stars. It is the quintessential Starseed stone, since it is literally a merging of extraterrestrial energy and Earth material. Moldavite’s formation is the result of a meteorite crash that occurred in Czechoslovakia around 14.8 million years ago. It has a very high spiritual frequency that can often be felt as heat or vibration. Moldavite can be intense for the average human. But Starseeds normally feel right at home with the cosmic energies of Moldavite, and it can help them to adjust to the density of the Earth plane. Moldavite can also help Starseeds to fulfill their purpose as accelerators of evolution–which is ultimately what they are both here to do!

Moldavite is a quantum leap stone, helping you to rapidly shift your vibration and your life circumstances. Here’s how it works. It brings in high frequencies of light that activate and clear all chakras and the entire energy field. Your light quotient is raised to a new level, and anything that is incongruent with your highest good will start to fall away. This could include relationships, your job, your living space, roles, patterns, and habits. This purging process is followed by a positive flow of synchronicities, new connections, and bright opportunities that are in alignment with your true mission.

Moldavite also quickly activates your higher chakras, psychic senses, and spiritual gifts. Higher abilities relevant to your unique purpose begin to come online, such as intuitive knowing, telepathy, multidimensional travel, remote viewing, or energy healing. Moldavite is especially known for enhancing meditation and dreams, helping you to have vivid encounters with higher dimensional beings, ET’s, and your own soul. Starseeds often have a specific mission, and sometimes it is so abstract that it can be difficult to grasp. Moldavite can help you to remember your star origins, why you came here, and what you wanted to accomplish. Then it brings in the energy, insights, and activations necessary to help you make it happen.

3.  Stellar Beam Calcite

Stellar-Beam-Calcite-300x168

Stellar Beam Calcite is a Starseed’s vehicle for accessing the stars and actualizing higher dimensional living. The crystalline formation of Stellar Beam Calcite models for us a grand spiritual potential–the possibility of making big shifts and changing your outer reality to a more refined and spiritually-focused expression. As crystal expert, Katrina Raphaell explains, most Calcite manifests in the shape of a rhomboid or parallelogram–both internally and externally. Stellar Beam Calcite has an internal structure that is a rhomboid, but its outer shape (and energy) resembles a spaceship. The sharply pointed terminations give it an added intensity, focus, and energetic range. Since Stellar Beam is the Calcite that has evolved the rhomboid to an entirely different shape, it represents “the manifestation of the new reality.” It is the perfect support stone for Starseeds, helping them to bring transformation, galactic energies, and higher ways of being to the Earth plane.

Stellar Beam Calcite has a noticeably high and fast vibration that can give you the feeling that you are about to take off into the cosmos. It produces a quickening effect on the cellular and atomic levels. It activates your DNA and light body, awakens your psychic senses, and raises your light levels. Stellar Beam Calcite is like a ship for your consciousness, safely escorting it to the ET realms. It can connect you with the guidance and energy of your Star family and your Starseed aspects—Pleiadians, Sirians, & Arcturians especially. I have used it to help me access healing frequencies from advanced ET technologies, causing instant healing in some cases.

When I work with Stellar Beam Calcite, I always think of Captain Picard from Star Trek and his famous line, “Make it so!”  Since it powerfully activates the solar plexus chakra, Stellar Beam Calcite is a “make it so” stone that can create quick manifestation results. It is especially well-suited for manifesting healing on all levels, clearing of all types of negative energy (blockages, entities, attachments, and implants), spiritual breakthroughs, and the actualization of your highest soul mission.

4.  ET Crystal

13239324_10208332193794891_1183169147898547201_n

Are you ready for take-off? According to Patricia Troyer, author of Crystal Personalities, an ET (extra termination) crystal is a quartz that has multiple points or terminations on one end. It actually looks and behaves like a rocket ship. ET crystals symbolize Universal connection and can help you communicate with ET consciousness. They can also represent the merging and integration of your other lifetimes and soul aspects. Each small termination is like one of your incarnations, and it contains all of the gifts, light codes, and mastery you attained in that lifetime. They all come together in one crystal and can be focused through the lens of your current incarnation, which is represented by the single point or termination at the other end of the crystal.

In my experience, ET crystals are very multidimensional and can even defy the laws of physics as we know them. For example, I have had an ET crystal bend slightly in my hand for a split second on a few occasions, and other people who handled the crystal experienced the same thing! They can serve as antennas that help you receive cosmic transmissions and information. The can also be used as wands to direct this galactic energy for healing and activation work. They help you access and bring through cosmic symbols, activation codes, and light language. ET crystals can also assist with revitalizing your energy or space, while providing protection.

5. Labradorite

Labradorite is a beautiful form of feldspar that exhibits flashes of iridescent peacock colors when held in the light. Gazing into one can feel like you are getting pulled into a galactic vortex of shimmering starlight. The shifting colors provide a clue about the stone’s energetic function: It helps you to shift your energy and consciousness to align with higher levels of light. Labradorite is a stone that can greatly activate your psychic senses, expanding your perception so that you can be aware of multiple levels of reality all at once. In The Book of Stones, Robert Simmons provides the following list of magical qualities that Labradorite can enhance: “clairvoyance, telepathy, astral travel, prophecy, psychic reading, access to Akashic records, past-life recall, communication with higher guides and spirits, and coincidence control.”

It has a special resonance and connection with cosmic energies and beings. Melody, author of Love is in the Earth, explains that the flashing luminescence in Labradorite is believed to have an extraterrestrial origin. Stellar energies are seeded within Labradorite, and this advanced ET energy and information is available to those who work with it. Labradorite grounds this spiritual and stellar energy into your bio-system and consciousness so that you can use it in tangible ways. It also keeps your chakras and aura clear, balanced, and protected.

Starseeds arrive on this planet like shooting stars, leaving a trail of magic and light that dazzles and uplifts all witnesses. Work with these five crystals to activate your galactic gifts, and your soul will become a guiding star for humanity during these pivotal ascension times.
