Apophyllite is a stone I use for elevation. It sparkles out to the Universe with joy.
To work with any stone, I first ask the stone how it wishes to be used. It will speak to me (or sometimes not) and I will simply write down what I hear and feel.
When I sat with my apophyllite here is what I received:
The feeling of joy, exuberance, and a desire to dance came to me immediately. You cannot hold this stone without smiling. It uplifts your spirits and raises the vibration of all it touches.
Like most crystals, it will speak to you in song and tone, but with this particular stone it is much easier to hear this. It is the sweet clear voice of the angels.
Apophyllite is the diamond light that transforms us all, creating a portal to transcendence. It attunes you to the knowledge of passages from one place to another. It creates a bridge into the light when you need it most.
This stone helps you to know the way of least resistance — whether in times of birth and death — or just as a passage from one way of living to another. It helps you to see the subtleties of choices, and to fashion your choosing in ways that serve your soul.
There are several good ways to use apophyllite. It is an excellent stone to use in grids. It beautifully elevates and clears the energy of a room. It brings in a higher vibration and a feeling of joy. I have them all over my house, I am always finding little grids that I forgot were there. They always bring a smile when I find them.
For a grid, you can work with 5 – 11 apophyllites alone or mix some in with any grid you are creating to elevate the vibration of your space.
Apophyllite is also an excellent stone to use when you meditate. Because it creates a portal, there is easy access into the unseen worlds where guidance and answers are available.
In a few days I will add a video meditation to use with apophyllite. Just grab your stone, hold it in your left hand and get comfortable.
I welcome comments and questions about how you experience your apophyllite. To see stones available for purchase click here.
Tsavorite garnets are one of the strongest stones I have found in a long time. It may seem like I write about garnets more than any other stone, and this is true. They are stunning healing tools and the range of work they can do is astonishing. They work on all levels of healing with depth and magic.
When I sat in meditation with these new tsavorite garnets – one of my favorite finds at the 2016 Tucson Gem and Mineral show – I received quite a lot of information which I want to share.
The beauty of Aqua Aura draws people in almost immediately. It is the light iridescent blue of star shine. There are those who doubt the crystal’s effectiveness because it is man made (or really man-enhanced). I feel that it offers the best of man and mineral in one package.
What is Aqua Aura Exactly
How is this crystal made? Aqua Aura is made when quartz or spirit quartz is put in a chamber with gold molecules and given an electric charge. The quartz attracts the gold which then fuses to the surface of the crystal and cannot be rubbed off. Through this alchemy, both elements become one.
The aqua aura crystal then contains the healing properties of both gold and quartz, and goes beyond both to become something different again. (more…)
Celestite is a great stone for meditation. It moves us out of the body and into more celestial realms. I use this stone to connect with the angelic realm. It is also tremendously calming in times of stress.
By gazing into its many-faceted beauty, you can begin to feel calmer and more centered. The frequency of the stone will also discourage unwanted entities or energies during meditation. (more…)
Out of all of the new products we are adding to the site right now, seraphinite is one of my favorites. It is a variety of clinoclore and contains chlorite, which gives it the green color. This wonderful stone is from Siberia and is not readily available all the time.
When I sat with the stone in meditation, I actually heard it speaking. Here are the words I heard: “I will work with you on what you are working on at the moment. If your body is in pain, I will soothe it. If your heart wishes to expand, I will open it into all possibility, all love. If your mind is overactive, I will calm it and allow it to rest. When your spirit is hungry, I will bring forth that which will feed it.” (more…)
Another way to use your crystals is to make crystal essences. For those who use or make flower essences, this will be a very easy adaptation.
Essences are very much what their name implies. The energy of the crystal is infused into the water, such that the completed essence is vibrational in nature. It moves through your body (physical and energetic) in this way and as such, it is very gentle, works subtlety, and yet, can be quite effective.
Making Crystal Essences
The process is quite simple. Choose the crystal that you want to work with, and blow your intention(s) for creating the essence into the crystal. Immerse your crystal in a glass or bowl of fresh water***. Place the container where it will be able to bathe in the sun and/or moonlight for 24 hours or more — this would be beautiful to do over the course of a full moon (the day before, of, and the day after).
