 Here we are coming to the end of the financial year. For many this can be a busy time of buying and selling, some of this for pleasure and some to improve your tax position. This is the time to sell off poor performing investments or for buying up big for tax deductions, or taking advantage of end of year sales. Many Businesses don’t look forward to the stock take as it entails lots of counting and lots of time.

But here is where you can help us out, buy up big and in fact it would be great if you bought everything we’ve got. Then we wouldn’t have to count anything. I really can’t imagine this happening, but it’s nice to dream. To help you achieve this we have extended our stock-take sale for one more week. This means you can stock up and save 15% off anything or everything on our site. All orders delivered at the flat rate of $9.50 (*except salt lamps and Geodes).

Inspirational Quote for the month.

Don’t surrender your individuality, which is your greatest agent of power, to the customs and conventionalities that have got their life from the great mass.... Do you want to be a power in the world? Then be yourself.
Ralph Waldo Trine.  

 Stone of the month.

For all those born in the month of June, your Birthstone is Moonstone.

Moonstone is Feldspar, which is common in the earth’s crust. Moonstone is an opalescent variety of orthoclase and albite, with a blue or white sheen known as adularescence.

Known as a soul stone, it is considered to be excellent for expressing and attracting love and kindness. It is also said to bring happiness into its environment.

It was once called the ‘traveler’s stone’ providing protection against the perils of travel. Moonstone is also a talisman of good fortune and is beneficial to those involved in agriculture.

Moonstone is a stone of new beginnings and as its name suggests it is strongly connected to the moon and also to intuition. It reminds us that everything is part of the cycle of change, just as the moon waxes and wanes and encourages us to pay attention to the cycles of our lives.

Moonstone helps to cool and soothe the emotions and calm over-reactions to emotional and personal situations. It encourages intuitiveness and perception. Moonstone enhances the feminine nature and balances male-female energies. It also soothes instability and stress.

Has a powerful effect on the female reproductive cycle and alleviates menstrual tension. Linked to the pineal gland it balances the hormonal system and stabilizes fluid imbalances. Handy in cases of shock and can be used to calm hyperactive children.

Moonstone assists the digestive, elimination and reproductive systems; it enhances the assimilation of nutrients and assists in the elimination of toxins and fluid retention. It alleviates degenerative conditions of skin, hair, eyes and fleshy organs like the liver and pancreas. It is excellent for PMS, conception, pregnancy and childbirth. Useful in the treatment of circulatory disorders, water related imbalances like swelling and insect stings and bites.

Crystal Tips and Techniques.

Some easy ways to enjoy the healing benefits of crystals is by carrying or wearing them. As obvious as this may seem, many people ask what they are meant to do with them. You could simply carry them in your pocket, or handbag. You can stick them on the spot where they are needed with surgical tape. Many women tuck them in their bra, or you can carry them in a small bag or pouch suspended from your neck, similar to wearing a necklace or a medicine pouch.

An effective method is to place the chosen stone into a wire cage or binding and add it to a chain or similar and wear it as a necklace, or clip it to a bracelet. Of course jewellery made with the selected crystal is a valuable way to enjoy its properties. An inexpensive version of this is a chip bead bracelet.

Placing crystals into your environment, e.g. at your desk, is an easy way to benefit, though not as efficient as having them closer by.

Making a crystal elixir is also very effective, (see our article on ‘Making Crystal Elixers') not only can you drink it, but you can apply it topically as well. This elixir or the actual stones can be added to your bath water to great effect. (Not all crystals are suitable or this, so check it out first).

Natural Therapies to the Rescue.

This is the short version for the newsletter, to read the full story click here.

The other day I injured my back, and I wanted instant relief. Sadly this was not available, but several natural therapies were employed to achieve a result. Among these was Crystal healing and the stones utilized to great effect were: Hematite, Carnelian and an Azurite/malachite tumble stones. These stones worked in conjunction with the other therapies to relieve the pain and relax the spasms occurring in the muscles of my lower back.

Ideally the best stones to have used would have been Cathedral Quartz and pale green Serpentine also known as Infinite Stone. Both these crystals are particularly good for pain relief and excellent for relief of muscular aches and pains. Sadly these were not available as they have not been replaced these since we were burgled.

Other useful stones or crystals to use are:

For backache or pain: Malachite, Magnetite or Loadstone, Amber, Iolite, Sapphire and Blue Agate.
For pain relief: Amethyst, Aragonite, Fluorite, Lapis Lazuli, Larimar, Quartz, Smokey Quartz and Tourmaline.
For muscles cramps and spasms: Apache Tear, Amazonite and Chrysocolla.

All these Stones are available under Tumble Stones.

The Difference™ - Opening Humanity’s Heart

We are both collaborators to The Difference™ as it allows us the opportunity to reach out to the world in a spirit of love, joy and compassion and to be part of a team stepping out to do good in the world.

Inspired Living Entertainment is currently producing a film, The Difference™, which will be filmed in Australia and internationally and is due for release in 2011. The Difference™ is a similar genre film to the phenomenally successful Australian film, The Secret, although the film topic and filming style is different. The Difference™ will appeal to a similar audience as The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know?

We have the opportunity to involve a handful of people who work in the Self-Improvement industry in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney and who feel passionate about making a difference in the world. We are currently making connections with people who work holistically and are making a difference either to the environment and people around them.

If you have a spark of an interest in The Difference™ film project we would love to chat with you about it.  Please contact Deanne Mathews on (03) 9315 1922 or alternatively email her at deannem@inspiredliving.com.au  or to learn more about this project go to What is the Difference.
