CELESTITE: A HEALING RITUAL FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION

Celestite: A Healing Ritual for Divine Intervention / www.krista-mitchell.com

Celestite is a strontium sulfate crystal whose fragility belies its majestic healing power.

Its name derives from the Latin “heavenly”.

We work with celestite a LOT in my Pro Crystal Healer program to help reduce inflammation, accelerate healing, and to deepen our exploration and development of our spiritual selves.

In meditation it helps connect us with the “something more” that we all are, and its high frequency vibrations opens divine channels that can help lead us on our soul path, discover our life purpose, and embody more of our higher potential.

It resonates with the heart, throat, 3rd eye, and crown chakras.

Crystal Healing Our Relationship to Wealth & Healing For Being Overwhelmed

By Krista Mitchell

Tiger Eye: Healing Our Relationship to Wealth

“Wealth is many things. We give it a numerical value, but that’s just a number, not a feeling.

What is wealth?

Safety, love, health, friendships, joy… the list goes on!

How did we warp wealth?

By losing touch with its true meaning, its true joy.

Take a moment to connect with me, and as you do my energy can ignite your solar plexus [chakra].

Joy, nourishment, feeling the cool solid structure of a tabletop – all of these things are wealth.

This week, celebrate your wealth in small, simple ways.

Reclaim for yourself the love, light, and beauty of this frequency.

Feel it replenish your soul.”

Tiger eye is a stone of prosperity, grounding, balance, and protection. Its frequency is that of joy. It says: “Connect with joy, and the rest is easy.” Let this be your mantra this week.

Crystal Healing For Overwhelm

I’m kind’a over feeling overwhelmed!

I tend to take on too much, which is something I’m still working on in my own personal healing process.

Sometimes it’s what my guidance calls “Go time”, where there’s a lot upgrading, downloading, and shifting simultaneously, and it’s a matter of taking it on and getting it done.

And sometimes, a whole barrel of shit just seems to hit all at once! And it’s duck and cover and cope as best you can.

I imagine everyone who’s reading this has experienced all three.

I feel like I’ve experienced all three this year, and it’s only the end of February!

While we can point to the moons, eclipses, stars, or our shadows as the culprits, overwhelm seems to have become a way of life for too many people.

Crystals can’t magically fix this, but they can help provide the energy support we need to ride these times out as best we can.

I’ve got two suggestions here for you: one is a combo you can wear on a daily basis for support, the second is a crystal healing session you can provide for yourself within the comfort of your own home.

CRYSTALS + PRACTICES TO MAINTAIN SPIRITUAL ALIGNMENT

Crystals + Practices to Maintain Spiritual Allignment / Alignment -- power word for 2020 that keeps you in the flow of synchronicity, your soul's vision, and your life purpose.

Alignment: power word for 2020. If you follow spiritual circles or teachers, you may have been hearing this word a lot.

The energy of 2020 is lined up to help us build our foundation for the next level of our success, fulfillment, Grace, health, new phase or story, but the key is setting this foundation in a way that is in alignment with our true heart’s desires and souls.

What does spiritual alignment mean? Simply put: embodying your soul’s truth and authentic feelings and desires.

What does alignment look like? Making choices and taking actions from that authentic place within, that keep you on your path and bring you towards deep fulfillment. It keeps you in the flow of synchronicity, magic, and Universal collusion — not to mention in a place of authentic joy.

It’s saying yes to YOU, your needs, feelings, honoring your soul’s vision, and saying “no” or “not right now” to anything that is out of alignment.

It could be career choices, relationships, where you live, right down to what you eat, how you pray (or not), and the small choices and decisions that make up your daily life.

It can look like buying the bright green couch that your friend thinks is hideous, because the color thrills you. Or saying no to the second date with the person who looks great on paper, but who just didn’t vibe right with you. It could be quitting the job, selling the apartment, moving to the country, getting a dog, and starting a lifestyle blog, because that fills you with fuzzy joy right down to the tips of your toes.

And, most importantly, it feels right.

Sounds like a magical way to live? IT IS. In every sense of the word.

BUT, for most people, there are inherent challenges to living an authentic life that is in alignment with their heart and soul.

Why? Let me count the ways:

  • Conditioning

  • Social conformity

  • Fear

  • Limiting beliefs and thought-forms

  • Fear

  • Self-doubt

  • Too much noise or conflicting inner impulses

  • Fear

  • Ego

  • The instinct to remain safe at all costs

Living in alignment, quite simply, takes courage. It takes risk. It takes listening. AND, most importantly, it takes practice.

What I’m sharing with you in this article are crystals and practices I work with as part of my daily practice of being/living in alignment.

Crystals for Balance During the Holiday Season

by Kathleen Johnson from UniverSOUL Heart

Crystals for Balance during the Holiday Season by Kathleen Johnson

Although we know that maintaining balance in our lives is a key to wellness, it is often a challenge to do so. Life on Earth can be demanding, stressful, and even chaotic at times, which makes it harder to achieve, let alone maintain, a state of balance. This is especially true during the holiday season. As we rush around in our daily lives, juggling responsibilities of home, work, family, and friends, the added pressure of the holiday season is a recipe for imbalance and overload. So, this holiday season, allow some crystal therapy into your lives, and mindfully work with their energy to keep yours in balance. 

Some of my top choices for balance and stress relief are:

Black Tourmaline is a stone that everyone needs! You may know it as a great grounding stone, but it also cleanses the energy field, and helps to dispel negativity in the form of worry, fear, judgment, and other toxic emotions. Black Tourmaline purifies and protects, so you can feel grounded and stable through the holiday rush. Keep a piece in a pocket, and place some over the exterior doors in your home.

Blue Kyanite is a wonderful choice for finding and maintaining balance. All Kyanites gently and thoroughly align and balance the 7 primary chakras. They calm and release stuck energy manifesting as emotions. Blue Kyanite has the added benefits of dissolving unhealthy emotional patterns, as well as enhancing communication with others. Placing a piece of Blue Kyanite on the 3rd eye can create a calm serene state in a matter of minutes when you’re feeling overwhelmed by your to-do list.

Green Aventurine is a heart chakra stone, and carries a lovely energy that instantly lifts the spirits and supports a feeling of well-being. It is also a wonderful balancing crystal, and inspires optimism during challenging times and situations. With its happy loving energy, Green Aventurine supports graceful movement through the holiday season. And, because it also harmonizes interactions with others, it is a wonderful choice for holiday gatherings and social events. Wearing a green aventurine necklace or pendant keeps it close to the heart.

Lepidolite is quickly becoming one of my go-to crystals, especially for stressful times when balance is needed. It harmonizes with all the chakras, but works especially well with the heart and 3rd eye. Its energy soothes frazzled nerves and dissipates stress and worry. Lepidolite calms anxiety and encourages restful sleep. It gently moves us into a receptive state for balance and emotional healing. Its energy is serene, soothing, and helps us appreciate the lessons in challenges. Carry Lepidolite in a pocket for a calm balancing influence and place it under your pillow for relief from insomnia related to holiday stress.

Red Jasper is the “Supreme Nurturer”. Offering stability and emotional balance, Red Jasper works slowly but steadily. Keeping Red Jasper in your environment promotes a grounded outlook, a deeper connection to Mother Earth, and an ability to recognize the source of chaos in our lives, thus providing the opportunity to restore order. Red Jasper has a very practical and earthy vibration that feels comforting and familiar. It also restores strength and vitality depleted by stress or illness. Red Jasper calms and balances the emotions when used as a worry stone.

Rose Quartz is a universally beloved stone. The gentle, nurturing energy of this delicate pink crystal is pure love – unconditional and for all. Its soothing vibrations are calming as they release tension and restore balance to the emotions and the entire energetic body. Rose Quartz is the quintessential heart chakra stone. Even so, it stimulates all the chakras, harmonizing and uniting them with heart energy. Wear Rose Quartz in a necklace or pendant, and allow its loving energy to calm and smooth any emotional rough edges.

Of course, this is by no means a comprehensive list. Fortunately, Mother Earth has blessed us with many crystals that restore balance, reduce stress, and support wellbeing. Some additional suggestions are AmethystBlue Chalcedony,Blue Lace AgateCelestiteMoonstoneTiger’s Eye, and Unakite Jasper.

Finally, as always, allow your intuition to guide you to those that work best with you. Mother Earth has you covered, so welcome some crystal therapy into the holiday season, and Sparkle on!

CLEARING INNER RESISTANCE TO POSITIVE CHANGE ~ A CRYSTAL HEALING RITUAL

By Krista Mitchell

Clearing Inner Resistance to Positive Change - A Crystal Healing Ritual  / krista-mitchell.com

It’s mind-boggling to think that there’s a part of us inside that fights us on making positive changes in our lives.

If something’s going to make our lives better, happier, healthier, why can’t we just do it? What gets in the way?

Put your hand up if you’ve ever experienced this: there’s a change you’ve wanted or needed to make in your life for a long-azz time, but you just seem stuck or held in the same old place or repeating pattern.

You just can’t seem to make the change happen.

It could be losing weight, changing jobs or careers, shifting your pattern of relationships, breaking a bad habit, exercising more, eating better, creating more work/life balance, etc.

What you are experiencing, my friend, is inner resistance.

New Moon in Virgo ~ Opportunities for Advancement

Dear all,
I have some really great news for you — After a challenging summer, we are finally reaching calm astrological waters!
In addition to an excellent positioning of the New Moon in Virgo, we will also have the support and stability provided by Mercury and Saturn — two big players when it comes to movement, studying, learning, teaching, organization, long-term planning and communication. You may notice this as being able to do anything related to these areas with greater ease and precision.
The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th has only one challenging aspect with a planet that often brings confusion, deception, fears, and disillusionment.
However, this New Moon has many more positive aspects with several other planets whose influence can help us overcome this quite easily.
Just remember that based on your personal chart you may experience this in a variety of ways.
Generally, the atmosphere that all these planetary interactions create will be one of generosity, focus, self-confidence, optimism, increased spiritual growth, and many opportunities for positive changes . . .
The key change that you may want to focus on this month is your health, specifically how to arrange your schedule to include more wellness/energy/spiritual activities that support your well-being.
To maximize this astro-spiritual opening for change, actively focus on making new connections, expanding your circle, learning new things and growing spiritually.
Crystals to assist you with this are Labradorite, Amazonite, Turquoise, and Imperial Topaz.
For those of you who are local (Hampton Roads, VA), here are some news — send me an email back if you are interested:
1) Early Morning Beach Meditation, Saturday, September 15, $10
2) Early Morning Equinox Meditation, Saturday, September 22, $10

Crystals for Autumn Equinox

by Hibiscus Moon

I REALLY LOVE this time of year! But I think I say that every time the seasons change. I get such a charge from the seasonal cycles.

The Autumn Equinox (or Spring Equinox for those in the Southern Hemi) is now upon us and for the purposes of this blog post I’m going to stick to the Autumn aspects, but if you’re from Down Under or just plain interested, you can read my classic blog post on Spring Equinox here.

Some Science, Of Course!

So, before I get to the crystals, a bit o’ science on the Equinox stuffs for a sec. I can’t help myself! This year’s Autumn (or Fall) Equinox lands on Friday, September 22.

There are 2 equinoxes each year; in September and March. Because of the tilt of our planet on our axis, we’re usually getting more sun on one hemisphere than on the other, but there are 2 times/year (Spring and Autumn Equinox) when we get pretty much equal amounts of sunlight on both hemi’s, so our night and day are of equal length everywhere on Mama Earth. So cool!

There’s a Crystal for That! 

By Nikki @ Sol Path Tarot and Crystal Reiki
Crystals For Your Home

Today I will begin a 6-week series on crystals to use around your home. Many of us carry or wear our crystals to help us with various healing, but you can also set crystals around your home to promote certain atmospheres or help carry out specific intentions. When using crystals in your home, you can choose to display large crystals in the form of towers or spheres, or you may wish to be more subtle by hiding small tumbled stones in drawers or under sofa cushions. Whichever way you prefer will be perfectly fine and will have the same effect.

For week 1, here is a list of crystals to use in your kitchen/dining area. The kitchen for many people is the hub of their home. This modern-day hearth is a high-traffic area for most families and tends to be a place where people gather when we have friends or family visiting. This is also the space where we nourish ourselves and our loved ones, which is why keeping this space energetically healthy can be very important. Here are 4 crystals to give your kitchen a spiritual remodel.

1. Agate – Agate has a very gentle, calming energy that is good for grounding and promotes overall wellness and longevity.

2. Amazonite – This stone opens both the heart and the throat chakra, promoting loving communication. It dispels negativity and is beneficial for calcium and mineral absorption.

3. Chryscolla – Chrysocolla purifies the environment in which it’s placed and promotes love and understanding. It can bring tranquility and serenity to the space, as well as bond family members together, improving the relationships between people by encouraging positive communication.

4. Jasper – All jaspers are known to be great nurturers. Whichever type of jasper you choose will alleviate stress and tension in the space and will encourage altruism and strengthen the family bond. It also clears electromagnetic and environmental pollution from the space, as well as work toward clearing emotional/mental negativity from the people sharing the space.
