June 2017: Aquamarine

June is chatty Gemini’s month. It’s a talkative time and Aquamarine’s calming energies reduce stress and quieten the mind. This crystal removes extraneous thought. It filters information reaching the brain so that only that which is relevant is retained. In this way it clarifies perception, sharpens the intellect and clears up confusion. Aquamarine is an excellent stone for the throat chakra. It clears blocked communication and aids self expression. This stone is helpful in understanding underlying emotional states and interpreting how you feel. Aquamarine stimulates your psychic abilities. Meditating with it helps you to recognise the difference between thinking, feeling and responding to your intuition.  In this way, you can clearly express your Self. Gemini is a dual sign, showing two faces, and Aquamarine helps you to view emotional issues with an insightful, dispassionate perspective, raising you up out of fear. It is useful for breaking self-defeating programmes and bringing unfinished business to a conclusion. This stone has a particular affinity with sensitive people and with those who are overwhelmed by responsibilities. Conversely, it helps you to take responsibility for yourself and your decisions.

May 2017: Prairie Tanzanite

The beautiful colours of new Prairie Tanzanite resonate well with the sensual earthiness of Taurus, who appreciates the finer things of life, making this the perfect stone for May. A peace-inducing combination of Tanzanite and White Jade, it creates a grounded spirituality. My crystal group dubbed it ‘the Lullaby stone’ because it instantly sent them into a deeply relaxed state before taking them into a higher state of consciousness. The stone digs deep down into the throat to release prohibitions on speaking truth, giving clarity into what needs to be said. Prairie Tanzanite also creates freedom from external pressures, offering the space in which to make decisions. This is a profoundly calming and centering stone during periods of stress and extreme frustration. It helps you to put aside concerns and sleep at night. It is helpful for ADHD and hyperactivity and for healing PTSD. The stone has a powerful connection with nature spirits and elementals and the purple connects to the cosmic devas and so integrates high vibrational downloads into the planet and the physical body.

April 2017: Herkimer Diamond

April is Aries’ month and Diamond is one of its flashier zodiac stones. But a Herkimer Diamond is more appropriate for grids and crystal healing or metaphysical work than a tiny diamond. It is excellent for opening the third eye, clarifying perception and connecting to the highest spiritual levels.  It contains a crystal memory into which information can be poured for later retrieval.  In its larger form, Herkimers create a protective grid around you. Two Herkimer Diamonds can be programmed to enhance telepathy between partners.

Essential for layouts in areas of electromagnetic or geopathic stress or disturbed earth energy, Herkimers block negativity and transmute it to positivity. A layout of Herkimers clears the chakras in minutes. Smoky Herkimers are excellent healing for both your own earth chakra and the Earth itself and the Golden-yellow Herkimers ones are brilliant cleansers and regenerators, especially when they contain oil from the Himalayas or iron. These are excellent for restoring vitality.

March 2017: Blue Halite

hen the lovely John van Rees posted that Exquisite Crystals now have the beautiful and very rare Blue Halite I was so excited. I just had to share it with you immediately. It is so gorgeous and so very cleansing. I have one piece that I treasure. It’s the perfect stone for March and Pisces.

Here’s what John says about it: Metaphysical uses for Halite include:

  • Enhancing good will.
  • Elevating ones moods and diminishing negative thinking.
  • Inciting initiative and independent thought.
  • Allowing one to go deep within to find ancient wisdom.
  • Clearing of the heart chakra (Pink to red colors).

I would add that the Blue variety is excellent for cleansing the higher chakras, especially the causal vortex, soma and alta major (see Crystal Prescriptions 4 if you are unfamiliar with these.

Halite is a salt mineral and should not be cleansed in water as it will dissolve.

The supply is limited so buy yours now.

February 2017: Preseli Bluestone: The journeying stone

Preseli Bluestone is the ancient stone of memory and dreaming which forms the inner ring at Stonehenge. It can take you back into your past lives to find the gifts you’ve given yourself that are waiting to be reclaimed. Holding this stone when journeying opens a cosmic anchor and attaches you to the earth’s core. This unique British stone spiritually links to Merlin energy and the shaman in us all. Size matters with Bluestone! It is highly paramagnetic and you may need to turn the stone or yourself to align with its polarities. A small piece is exceedingly intense and larger pieces may need to be moved out of a bedroom at night to avoid over-stimulation.

January 2017: Wind Fossil Agate: the soul scourer

Wind Fossil Agate teaches that you are an eternal incarnated soul who just happens to be on a human journey this time. It assists with the process of soul scouring, clearing away karmic encrustations, beliefs and emotional baggage both from your own past and that of the ancestors. It carries the power of the Karma of Grace that says that, when sufficient work has been carried out, then the soul can let go, and is no longer bound by karma.
