Inspirational Quote for the month.
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy”. - Thich Nhat Hanh
Stone of the month.
For those born in the month of March, your Birthstone is Aquamarine. It is also one of the Star-sign stones for Aries and Pisces.
This stone provides emotional and intellectual stability, clarity of mind and inspiration. Aids in self expression and calms the nerves. Helps banish fears, doubts and phobias. Aquamarine is also known as a stone of courage. It is also known to harmonize its surroundings and provide protection against pollutants. It has the ability to bring unfinished business to a conclusion and clear blocked communications. It is often used as a talisman against drowning.
Aquamarine is a wonderful meditation crystal as it sharpens the intuition and opens clairvoyance. This crystal will bring you to higher states of consciousness and spiritual awareness.
Tips for using Crystals.
Have you considered having a crystal bath? One that I find most exhilarating is a Hematite and Clear Quartz bath. Fill your bath with water at your desired temperature and add 6 to 10 Hematite tumbles and 3 to 6 Clear Quartz tumbles. Hop in and lay back and relax, making sure of course that you aren’t laying on top of one or more of the crystals. This can be a bit uncomfortable. I find this bath especially invigorating after a hard day of physical labor or to re-energize when I am feeling down. Often the energy playing in the bath feels like thousands of little air bubbles coming through the water: A most delightful sensation.
There are many other combinations to try. Why not experiment and come up with your own! Of course, make sure that you only use hard crystals that won’t be affected by immersion in water. When you have finished be sure to rinse your crystals off and dry them thoroughly.
The Power and Magic of Crystals in the 21st Century.
When looking at crystals, a lot of us see things of natural beauty and innate power. Then there are those among us who see nothing but a rock, it may look pretty but has no further value. They will then scoff at and deride the knowledge of those of us who believe in the power and magic of Crystals and use their physical and metaphysical properties to our advantage, These are the same people who blindly extol the virtues and benefits of our modern day technologies, with little to no thought of natures role in making these technologies possible.
Yet, many of the wonders of our daily lives that we take for granted owe their existence in some way to crystals and the mineralogical kingdom. Here are just a few examples:-
Keeping Time. In order to keep our lives on time and punctual we have come to depend very heavily on accurate time pieces. To do this most of our clocks and watches use Quartz movements. Until recently the world clock kept its time using a Quartz movement. Today it uses Atomic decay as the measuring device.
Our Computers. Imagine trying to operate in your modern lifestyle without one of these. Yet the main driving component of your computer is the silicon chip. Admittedly these are synthesized these days for uniformity and consistency, as Mother Nature doesn’t make identical duplicates. But the very first one used in the prototypes were natural pieces of silicon dioxide; Quartz.
Lasers. At the core of our modern day miracle tools are Crystals, the two most commonly used are Ruby and Emerald. The medical fraternity has come to depend on these devises; which are used predominately in eye and cosmetic surgery.
Imagine the modern day builder without his laser level, or the speaker without his laser pointer.
Precision Bearings. Very fine tolerance technical tools depend on the crystal world to provide extremely durable bearings. At the cheaper end of the scale are Quartz and Garnet through to the more expensive Ruby, Emerald, and Diamond.
There are a great many other examples that can be used to demonstrate the use of crystals in our technologies and industry, but the short list above will be satisfactory for this article.
Let’s look at some other uses; Mica is crushed up finely and provides the shine in the best brands of lipstick. Lapis Lazuli is still used (ground up of course) in some exclusive brands of eye shadow. It provides that deep blue/purple colour, very popular in Egyptian times.
And of course a variety of stones are crushed and included in many of today’s orthodox ointments, tinctures and creams.
So why should it be surprising to these people when we talk of the Healing and magical properties of these same crystals, as we use them in our day to day life. If we go back to Biblical times, the Breast Plate of the High Priest was adorned with crystals selected for their peculiar energies and properties.
The Crown and Scepter of Royalty are decorated with crystals chosen, not for their beauty (as beautiful as they are), but for the energy and power they would afford.
A very interesting carry over from times past is in our use of jewellery. For example, Diamonds (known as a girl’s best friend) are the most popular stone for engagement rings. These were originally used because of their power or property to join or bind one to the other. Gold bands were chosen as wedding rings as Gold carries the energy of and is a symbol for fidelity.
With just these few examples you can see that Crystals play a vital role in our daily lives, with more going on behind the scenes with crystals and gemstones than may first be realized. So if we can utilize them so well in our technologies, why shouldn’t we be able to use them to enhance our spiritual and healing powers?
Of course, a lot of us already realize that these are powerful allies, to augment our spiritual lives and to assist in our healing.
