Mimosa Manager Cathy Douglas had this to share:

Labradorite has a lot in common with Moonstone: both are feldspars sharing the same basic makeup (Ca, Na)(Al, Si)4O8), and both show a distinctive, often-bluish inner shine that results when light reflects back from the inner planes of feldspar. But its darker color gives Labradorite a highly spiritual quality, so that people going through spiritual awakening or development often find themselves irresistibly attracted to it.

Safety note: Please don’t use Labradorite to make elixirs, since it contains aluminum.

Crystals For Kids

By Nicole Piper

Sol Path Tarot and Crystal Reiki: https://www.facebook.com/solpathtarot/

On a recent trip to one of my favorite crystal shops, I had my boys in tow, ages 7 and 9. I did my usual thing where I grab a basket and start ransacking the crystals bins, and my kids asked if they could get something. That’s when it occurred to me that my house was full of crystals, like, I have crystals spread out on all flat surfaces of my home – but they were all mine. None of them were technically chosen or cared for by my kids, and I thought, why not? I preach the benefits of crystals all the time; I’m missing this huge opportunity to get my kids involved in this from a young age so that it’s second nature to them as they are growing up. So, I told them, yes, they could each choose one thing. It was sort of an experiment for me to see what they would choose and to figure out why they were drawn to that particular crystal, and the result was, as I expected and much to my delight, they both chose crystals that had properties pertaining to problems/issues they were currently experiencing.

My youngest suffers from night terrors, and he chose a Brown Striped Jasper sphere. Brown Striped Jasper happens to be known as “the supreme nurturer” stone, promoting tranquility and support during stressful times. It’s also effective at banishing nightmares.  My oldest chose a huge chunk of Snowflake Obsidian, which helps keep you centered and focused and is a very effective grounding stone. He happens to suffer from flightiness and has difficulty maintaining attention and focus, especially in regard to school work.

It was so amazing to see them drawn to these stones that could help them, with no prompting on my part. I really believe that most kids are very “in tune” with themselves and with the energies of these stones. A lot of them haven’t been blocked by stress or anxiety or worry like us adults, therefore they can easily pick up the energy of crystals and have a sense of what to use them for. If you are thinking of getting your kids into crystals, maybe let them choose for themselves and then see which properties of those crystals may have called to them!

Record-Keeper Crystals

Featured Image -- 3785

Good Witches Homestead

Record-Keeper crystals have a very unique energy, matched only by their unusual appearance.

These crystals can be identified by the appearance of raised or sunken “record-keeper” triangles on the faces of the crystal.  The record-keepers are typically formed when mineral-rich solution flowed over protrusions on the surface of the crystal point.  They are normally found on only a few of the crystal faces (not all) and they show the direction of the fluid flow as the geologic event that formed them was occurring.  Although most commonly found in minerals of the Quartz group (i.e. Clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Amethyst, Citrine, etc.), record-keepers are also sometimes present in the Corundum group (i.e. Ruby and Sapphire stones).

Many intuitive and healers believe that these record keeper triangles can use to access information that’s been stored within the crystal.  Some people think that these represent data or information implants that are actually of…

WHAT ARE CRYSTAL GEM GRIDS?

Good Witches Homestead

They are tools for empowerment, for blessings, for prosperity, for love, for healing, for creating a sacred space, and much more. They can be used for any intention, from the simple goal of “bring more money” to the more serious, “banish this curse” to the great goal of “heal the planet”. Whatever your intention, the crystal grid is an effective use of crystal energy when done with your clean intention.

A grid is formed by making a geometric pattern with crystals, which can be tumbled stones or natural rough stones. The pattern can be any design you like – a Star of David which is the most popular, a Reiki symbol, a pentagram or another symbol of your choosing.

A basic grid consists of 4, 5, 6, or 7 stones – 1 in the center and the rest making the design. To charge and empower your grid you can use…
