Michael Illas Crystal Companion[/caption] I was asked on our College of Psychic Studies weekend which crystal would assist in mobilising heavy metals out of the body. Many of you will, like me, have remnants of mercury fillings. Mercury, as we know, is toxic. But that didn’t stop dentists all over Europe putting mercury fillings into the mouths of children and indeed adults. It is just one of many toxic metals that we may absorb from our food, water and environment. And it can have severe health consequences especially when the fillings are old and leaky, or when they have been removed leaving the metal roaming free in our blood. Elemental and Vaporized Mercury Poisoning Symptoms mood swings, nervousness, irritability, and other emotional changes, insomnia, headache, abnormal sensations, muscle twitching, tremors, weakness, muscle atrophy, decreased cognitive function/ Read the full article here: Mercury Poisoning: Treatment & Prevention - eMedicineHealth https://www.emedicinehealth.com/mercury_poisoning/article_em.htm The spleen chakra under the left armpit is a good spot to place the stone, and over the liver on the opposite side. Over the higher heart chakra (the thymus) in the centre of the chest, a crystal will energetically stimulate the entire immune system. So a simple layout on these three spots with a Shungite, Smoky Quartz, Flint or other detoxing stone at the feet can be effective. My head was full of the workshop at the time I was asked and the college had sold out of Crystal Prescriptions. I did manage to recall super-absorbent Sea Foam Flint and Terrie mentioned Chrysocolla (both available from Terrie Celest at http://www.astrologywise.co.uk/store/c112/Sea_Foam_Flint.html.) This Flint is formed from fossilized sponge so it is perfect for absorbing and transmuting the last remnants of toxic energies of all kinds especially those released during personal or earth healing. But, as you will see, there are several possibilities you could use. [caption id="attachment_7162" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Sea Foam Flint, c. Michael Illas, The Crystal[/caption] Shungite [caption id="attachment_7160" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Elite Shungite c. Michael Illas[/caption] My go-to stone for all such things. It was in my water bottle so I’m surprised I wasn’t reminded of it on Sunday. But if I had been, I’d never have been writing this. How to make Shungite water is on the members’ website so I’m not going to repeat myself here. Personally, I’d use raw Shungite and the direct method but, for legal reasons, I cannot tell you what to do. I leave it up to you. There’s enough information on the community about Shungite (use the search facility) for you to make up your own mind! Chinese Chromium Quartz If you have mercury toxicity or other heavy metal overload, Chinese Chromium Quartz works homoeopathically to mobilize the metals out of your body. The only problem is, you can be highly averse to it, as I am. It makes my stomach squirm just to think about it. I bought one from a photograph, felt awful immediately I opened the parcel, and put it away – in my storage unit. So finding a pic has been challenging. (I had managed to photograph it but my computer has kindly hidden the pics for me.) Hence I’ve borrowed one. Yes, I’m aware I may be repressing something I don’t want to look at, especially as I have diabetes with deep-seated issues (I will do ‘Stones for diabetes’ soon, possibly even with this mailout). But at other times it’s just that a crystal’s energy field is not compatible and that’s how I’ve felt ever since I touched this ‘new quartz’ – which by the way was billed as entirely natural. No, it’s not a natural Quartz! Faking it This Quartz is made by a hydrothermal process. ‘Normal’ clear or milky Quartz (often an inferior cluster with damaged points) is heated with water and natural chromium under immense pressure. This causes the Quartz to recrystallised and forces it into a new growth pattern that covers the cluster with what looks like sugar crystals. The chromium is infused with it, creating the deep green colour. Here’s a few more suggestions, mostly taken from Crystal Prescriptions volume 2¸one of the go-to books for things such as this: Apple Aura Quartz: Not the lime-green bling bonded with nickel that you see these days. The one I use is difficult to source but is formed from chromium alchemically bonded onto Quartz. Brilliant stuff. Brazilianite is said to release pollutants such as heavy metals, supporting the kidneys and other excretory organs. Combined with Smoky Quartz, Drusy Chrysocolla energetically stimulates liver function and moves heavy metals out of the body. Klinoptilolith is a powerful detoxifier, absorbing negative energy. It counteracts electromagnetic and heavy metal pollutants, radioactivity and suchlike that disrupt cell function. Orange River Quartz: This one is poky. Excellent energy. A very intense orange-red or orange-brown Quartz, often showing phantoms within or etchings on the sides. Frequently densely coated on the points. Best identified by the jolt of energy that hits you when you touch it.’ Taken from ‘Identifying stones: Orange on the members’ community website: Terrie has some for sale on www.astrologywise.co.uk If you’re looking at removing lead you really need the guidance of a qualified crystal healer. You could try a homeopathic application of lead to your spleen chakra (hold it in a tissue over the site): Stibnite, Galena, Pyromorphite  or some other form of the mineral. But, I have to warn you, they are extremely toxic and need to be handled with extreme care. Never make a direct essence with them and always wash your hands after handling them. Aussie essences An  essence you may find useful is an Australian Bush Flower from the lovely Ian White. I always take it after a visit to the dentist. I use the Purifying Essence or a combination of whatever comes quickly to hand including: Bottlebrush plus Bush Iris (the Detox Essence); and/or Dagger Hakea, Dog Rose and Wild Potato Bush. I find Wild Potato Bush particularly effective. Buy from Amazon (UK) Buy from Amazon (US)

When life isn’t quite sweet enough: Managing diabetes with crystal assistance

As diabetes is a medical issue, I am legally unable to offer you advice. But I can give you my personal experience and anecdotal evidence.

As diabetes is a medical issue, I am legally unable to offer you advice. But I can give you my personal experience and anecdotal evidence. In You Can Heal Your Life Louise Hay describes the psychological causes of diabetes as: “Longing for what might have been. A great need for control. Deep sorrow. No sweetness left.” The affirmation she recommends is this: “This moment is filled with joy. I now choose to experience the sweetness of today.” It’s close to the advice the lovely Art Geiser (Emotional EFT) gave to me the other day: ‘Remind yourself daily that you are a miraculous joyful self who happens to be having a human journey with all that that entails. Stay with the joy.’ Why am I mentioning this in a piece about managing diabetes? Well, having lived with a long line of women who had problems balancing their blood sugar, and having developed type 2 diabetes myself, I’ve learned a thing or two about the condition and the very first thing I learned that it is that it’s definitely psychosomatic rather than purely physical. No matter how much diet and exercise you take, you wont ‘fix’ the problem until you address the underlying issues. Which is where crystals – and magical potions - come in. I’d also noticed from my research at the College of Studies, almost half a century ago now, how many of the older mediums, as they were then called, had diabetes. It almost seemed to be part of being psychic. Both my grandmothers were psychic and one had diabetes and the other low blood sugar swings. I know that when my blood sugar is what I call ‘on the low side’ and my specialist diabetic nurse calls ‘normal’, I am much less psychic and have to go and eat something to be able to do a reading. Coincidence? I don’t think so. My story Fifteen years ago a doctor said to me, ‘We’ve confirmed that you have crossed over into type 2 diabetes. You’ll be on insulin in a year.’ Wrong! I’d already been on the border for fifteen years and now the sweetness had definitely gone out of my life. I’m not going into details here but let’s just say I wasn’t longing for what might have been, though there was great sorrow at a soul level that that a soul intention couldn’t be fulfilled. I didn’t have the energy to be in control, other than over how I thought and what I ate. And I had definitely lost sight of being a miraculous joyful self. I even wrote an article on that for Cygnus Magazine as, the state I was in, I couldn’t do one on sweetness and light. But I could offer practical suggestions on how to cope and make it through. One of which was:   I didn’t include crystals in that article. But they were all around me. Under my pillow, next to my computer in my bra, my car, and anywhere else I could stuff them. They kept me going and things did turn around miraculously. I was fortunate enough to find an excellent homeopath and a wonderful NHS consultant who was exploring alternative methods of handling diabetes. He was a great fan of the placebo effect. Telling me I was far too well to be in his clinic, he nevertheless kept me on while I was experimenting with various options so that he could measure my blood sugar changes. We need more doctors like him. Not surprisingly the medical school to which he belongs is one of the first in the country to pursue ‘integrative medicine’ studies. As my type of diabetes stems from insulin resistance and so, to my mind, adding further insulin would only add to the problem, to shut my doctor up, I tried metformin which is supposed to assist with insulin assimilation. One tablet had me bursting out in the dreaded metformin rash. You could feel the heat a foot above my arm and watch the red blistery spots erupting. ‘Throw them away immediately,’ said the former diabetic nurse who happened to be present. ‘That’s one side effect that won’t change.’  I did and turned to Berberine (Dragon Fruit), various supplements, and endocrine liquesence from my homeopath. I’ve never looked back. Oh and a great-granddaughter who loves crystal hunting and adds sweetness to my every day is the best medicine of all! [caption id="attachment_7149" align="alignleft" width="300"] Charlie de-gunking Sea Foam Flint. c. Judy Hall.[/caption] So, to the crystals. I’ve just written about this one in the mobilizing heavy metals piece. But let’s reiterate it here for those of you who resonate with it. A quick search of the internet revealed information such as this from www.4remedy.com and many other sites. Chinese Chromium Quartz Chromium supplementation is highly recommended for keeping blood sugar stable. So, this particular crystal interested me although it proved not to be suitable for me. It may well be for you though. Be sure to get the chromium version not the nickel. Any crystal with strong natural chromium content may assist. Chinese Chromium Quartz is created by superheating Quartz with Chromium so that it fuses on the surface. An insightful stone to meditate with to find out exactly what underlies a breakdown in the pancreas and reveal the psychosomatic causes of diabetes, it often indicates that the incarnating soul feels that the sweetness has gone out of life. Pinpointing the control mechanisms in which you have become stuck, Chinese Chromium Quartz gives clarity about what is needed to bring life back into balance and reconnect to joy, the crystal suggesting what would bring back that sweetness - and exactly how this will occur. In the meantime, Chinese Chromium Quartz provides understanding and companionship, teaching that all you need is within yourself. Emotionally, facilitating independence and centring in your heart, Chinese Chromium Quartz helps in realizing that no one else is required for, or provides, your happiness. That is up to you. Physically, Chromium has traditionally been used to heal the pancreas and associated blood-sugar imbalances and conditions. In those who feel drawn to this stone, it regulates metabolism and stimulates the immune system. If you have mercury toxicity or other heavy-metal overload, Chinese Chromium Quartz works homeopathically to mobilize the metals out of your body. HEALING Assists in heavy-metal toxicity, blood-sugar imbalances, diabetes, chronic fatigue, weight regulation and hormone deficiencies. [www.4remedy.com] So that’s one you could try – and please post your results on the crystal community Facebook page if you do. Here are two that I personally found very useful. Red Serpentine (from The Lizard, Cornwall) [caption id="attachment_7150" align="alignleft" width="300"] Red Serpentine c. Judy Hall[/caption] I found this one washed up on Penzance beach. When I brought it home and showed it to Barry at Earthworks (sadly now defunct), he said he’d had someone in the day before who’d found it was the only stone that assisted his diabetes. As it’s quite a large stone, I kept it in bed with me taped over my pancreas at night. Now it sits by my bed. It’s not always easy to source but I found this site http://www.britannicus-stone.co.uk/stones/red-serpentine.html  Imagine having a worktop made of this on which to prepare your food! [caption id="attachment_7153" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Red Serpentine slab http://www.britannicus-stone.co.uk[/caption] Pink Opal [caption id="attachment_7151" align="alignleft" width="247"] c. www.exquisitecrystals.com[/caption] Pink Opal was another one recommended by a crystal shop owner who’d had many anecdotal reports of success. I wore a pendant over my thymus for several years until my blood sugar had really stabilised. It’s an incredibly soft energy that really helps the heart to heal as well as the pancreas. You can obtain your Pink Opal from the lovely John van Rees at: www.exquisitecrystals.com And here’s the lists from Crystal Prescriptions volume 2: Blood sugar imbalances: Astraline, Chinese Chromium Quartz, Chrome Diopside, Green Shaman Quartz, Hubnerite, Maw Sit Sit, Malacholla, Mtrolite, Orange Kyanite, Owyhee Blue Opal, Pink Opal, Pink Sunstone, Serpentine in Obsidian, Shungite, Stichtite and Serpentine, Tugtupite. Chakra: spleen, dantien, heart. Diabetes: Angels Wing Calcite, Atlantasite, Bastnasite, Bowenite (New Jade), Chinese Chromium Quartz, Datolite, Pink Opal, Schalenblende, Shungite, Stichtite and Serpentine, Tugtupite, Chakra: dantien, spleen, Pancreas: Astraline, Bustamite, Brochantite, Chinese Chromium Quartz, Hubnerite, Leopardskin Jasper, Maw Sit Sit, Pink Opal, Quantum Quattro, Richterite, Schalenblende, Serpentine in Obsidian, Shungite, Tanzine Aura Quartz, Tugtupite Chakra: spleen, dantien (They’ve been updated in later volumes but this will give you a starting point.) And a quick p.s. Diabetes is often accompanied by thyroid deficiency. The best antidote I found to this – and which resuscitated my ‘dead’ thyroid - is Tanzine Aura Quartz. But it has to be authentically alchemicalised not dyed. It’s the gold and indium that have the effect, not the colour. Though that is beautiful. [caption id="attachment_7152" align="alignleft" width="179"] Tanzine Aura Quartz www.exquisitecryastals.com[/caption] Buy your authentic Tanzine Aura Quartz from: www.exquisitecrystals.com For a somewhat different view of the underlying spiritual factors of diabetes you could take a look at: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=492320534142741&id=161434963897968

Grids: Strengthening the immune system

Crystal grids don’t have to be complex. They can be deceptively simple. Two stones can constitute a grid. Here’s the heart and immune system stimulator from Crystal Grids using Rose Quartz on the higher heart chakra and then Bloodstone below it on the heart seed. It is actually a lemniscate (the infinity symbol), crossing at the heart. These crystals – and the angle at which they were placed – were dowsed as being perfect for the young dancer who was our model. They stayed in place for twenty minutes while Michael set up the shot, which is about the right length of time for this grid. It is a particular useful grid for this time of year in the northern hemisphere. Colds and flu abound and strengthening the immune system in this way gives you natural immunity. [gallery link="file" columns="2" size="medium" ids="6543,6544"] My favourite pairings would be Tanzurine (Emerald and Cherry Quartz), or Quantum Quattro and Smoky Quartz. Eye of the Storm seems to be pretty effective too and it cuts out the fear of being infected. You will need to dowse or intuit the right crystals for you. There is a list of appropriate crystals in Crystal Grids and also in the Crystal Prescriptions series. [gallery link="file" columns="2" size="medium" ids="6542,6545"]  

Healing the inner child

[gallery link="file" columns="2" size="full" ids="6102,6101"] Childhood events and traumas often create a split between a child part of yourself and the older child or adult. Reclaiming this inner child helps to heal energy splits and enhances your wholeness and your ability to feel positive, joyful emotions. If there has been serious abuse, the work is best handled by a skilled practitioner, but everyone can be helped by calling back their inner child and offering it love and healing. Youngite is an excellent crystal to assist in this work but any of the inner child crystals will facilitate the return. If using an actual crystal, remember to cleanse and dedicate it before use. Exercise: Calling back the inner child Sit quietly and image yourself in a favourite childhood spot, one where you felt safe. Feel the atmosphere, hear the sounds, smell the scents of the place. See your younger self sitting there with you. Ask that any parts of your childhood self that split off for any reason will come to join you – they may be hidden and you may need to seek them out – split off child parts often enjoy playing hide and seek. If they are cautious or resistant, be patient. Just keep saying to them: “I love you. I am sorry. Please come home.” Hold out to them one of the inner child healing crystals and have compassion for that younger you. If you need to dialogue with the child, tell them that you understand what they went through, that they were too young to cope with the challenges or the event or the behaviour. If possible have the child cuddle up on your lap. Tell them that now you are grown up you can offer the love and support that wasn’t there for them then. Again offer love and ask them to come home. Hold them in your arms and welcome them home. Allow them to gently integrate with you – the split off part may need to integrate with the young you first and then both reintegrate with you, or you can keep the younger you separate, promising to return until that younger you is ready to integrate. If you are non-visual: Set out a selection of photographs of yourself at different ages. Look closely at each one and ask yourself: “Was I fully present then? How was I feeling?” If you find one where you were not fully present or positive, place a cleansed and dedicated inner child healing crystal on the photograph, offer the child love and compassion, and leave in place for as long as feels appropriate. You can carry the crystal with you to maintain contact. You may also like to send that young child birthday cards (not necessarily on your birthday) to mark the years between you and form a pathway home. Crystals for inner child healing: Youngite, Chrysoprase, Smithsonite, Clear Kunzite, Menalite, Mother and Child (a large crystal with a smaller crystal coming off the side, the large crystal appears to be wrapping the smaller in love).

Crystals enhance your working environment and improve relations with your colleagues. There are crystals to assists problem solving, improve communication, heal sick building syndrome and help you deal with your day to day experiences. [caption id="attachment_5867" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Elestial Smoky Quartz, the perfect workplace enhancer. Image c. Michael Illas.[/caption] Enhancing the Working Environment [caption id="attachment_5869" align="alignleft" width="300"] Shungite Pendant, c. Jeni Campbell www.angeladditions.co.uk[/caption] All the stones that create a less stressful atmosphere such as Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Sugilite, Smoky Quartz and Kunzite will enhance your work place.  You can place one on your desk or in a drawer, tape it under a table, or put it discreetly in a corner – crystals work even when hidden behind a filing cabinet or the like.  You could also wear one under your clothes or keep it in your pocket.  However, most people instinctively respond to the ‘good vibes’ a crystal puts out and, as they are highly decorative objects, a crystal in the workplace will almost certainly be admired. You could use one as a paperweight if you have a desk, or choose a ‘team crystal’ to draw people together such as a large Spirit or Candle Quartz. It can also be useful to keep a small bowl of polished stones around – either for yourself or for other people to ‘play with’.  Their soothing properties will soon make themselves felt! But, as with all crystals in the workplace, remember to cleanse them at the end of each day – a purpose made essence such as the Crystal Balance Company’s Crystal Cleansing spray is idea. If you are in a job where complaints or even abuse are possible, keep a Black Tourmaline or Shungite close to you – you can stick one to your phone if necessary or wear one as a pendant.  Jet and Sardonyx both turn away violence and Rose Quartz and Sugilite bring in a more loving energy. Detoxing the working environment Perhaps one of the greatest hazards at work arises if you are sensitive to electromagnetic frequencies. Phone, computers and the like put out toxic fields that can seriously disrupt your own energies and lead to tiredness and low immunity. Fortunately chunks of Shungite, Black Tourmaline or Smoky Quartz detoxifies the environment. ‘Sick building syndrome’ is a condition in which the actual building literally makes you sick. This may vary from mild flu-like symptoms to extreme manifestations that create dis-eases such as cancer. The environment within the building is unhealthy. It is characterised by static electricity and can be recognised by the high level of lethargy, vague ‘unwellness’ or excessive sick-leave amongst employees in a business. The energy requires grounding. Placing electrostatic crystals such as Jet, Amber or Tourmaline in the corners of a room attracts the static to the crystal and grounds it. As does placing ‘needles’ of Smoky Quartz, Black Tourmaline and the like or a Halite (salt) lamp in the environment. You can also lay a line of alternating Black Tourmaline and Selenite crystals along a wall to heal the building. Teamwork [caption id="attachment_5866" align="alignright" width="232"] Amethyst geode c. Michael Illas[/caption] If you work as part of a team, Yellow Fluorite supports cooperation between members of that team as does Emerald whilst Tiger’s Eye aids in reaching your goals. A large Smoky Quartz draws off any negative energies and Pink Chalcedony helps resolve any conflict, as do Jasper, Lapis Lazuli, Rhodonite and Sugilite.  If communication is difficult, especially where there is bickering or criticism, try placing Aquamarine or Sodalite in the room – you could tape it under a table if you meet around one.  Sodalite is useful for changing attitudes.  If you find it difficult to express your ideas to your colleagues, wear a Sapphire.  If taking constructive criticism is hard for you, a Citrine allows you to be open to this.  Where compromise is needed, Serpentine facilitates it. If you need to bring the team together, try a large Spirit Quartz or an Amethyst geode. Redressing Missing Qualities Crystals can build in qualities that are needed for your work. Apatite promotes a humanitarian attitude and service. If enthusiasm for your job is lacking, put a Carnelian in your pocket.  If you need to heighten your motivation, make that crystal a Topaz or wear Apatite.  To develop leadership, use Apatite or Ruby, to enhance self-expression Kyanite.  Kyanite is also useful when you need a strong voice.  Fluorite aids concentration and if you need a clear and focused mind, Selenite is the stone for you. Problem solving  Many jobs require problem solving.  Crystals help you to combine careful analysis with an intuitive solution.  They assist in looking at things from a different perspective – and active talents you did not know you possessed. Green Tourmaline assists lateral thinking, analysing difficulties and finding a creative compromise. Aquamarine filters unnecessary information, concentrating on the essence of the problem. Apatite creates an interface between consciousness and matter. It stimulates actualisation, brings about a result. Amazonite  combines intellect and intuition and fires up the creative process. Peridot highlights essence of problem while Obsidian: brings up hidden factor (use circumspectly). Azurite kickstarts action on problems and Rutilated Quartz gets to the root cause and overcomes resistance to innovative solutions. Tourmalinated Quartz dissolves crystallised patterns, and harmonizes disparate elements. Turquoise harnesses creative energy, and shows where you fit in. Chrysoprase draws out unrecognised talents while Muscovite dispels insecurities and facilitates intuitive problem solving.

This is a very dear friend of mine, who happens to be a Libra so happy birthday to her. I’d like to give her a present of healing from the community. Chiron, as I call her, has suffered many health tribulations over the years and is in constant pain, yet always remains positive and upbeat. She’s fallen out of a boat during a collision and had her spine crushed, broken her back several times, recovered from cancer, and still travelled all around the world bring joy to all who meet her. Her latest ‘tribulation’ was a fall that broke her shoulder. After several months of intense pain and little healing, her shoulder joint has been replaced with a titanium one (titanium is Rutile!). As you can imagine, recovery is a slow process that requires infinite patience. Something she has in abundance thankfully. When I came to dowse the stones, and the placements, for a distance healing grid for her, I wasn’t surprised that Charoite came up. It is Chiron’s stone after all. But the ‘bone stones’ that I thought she would need for underlying osteoporosis, such as Fluorite, Magnetite and Magnesite, were rejected by my pendulum in favour of Flint anchors, a Smoky Quartz to draw off lingering radiation toxicity (which we’ve been working on ever since her cancer treatment), and rather a special Pietersite and Quantum Quattro. So, here’s the resulting grid for this truly remarkable soul. Please join with me in sending healing to her.

Carnelian is the stone for instant energy.  Simply holding it over your dantien for a few minutes charges you up and it is sensible to keep one in your pocket whenever you need a quick boost.  Red Jasper provides you with a store of energy to draw on in the longer term and, placed on your base chakra, will give a boost to your sexual libido should this be flagging.  Bloodstone too is a powerful revitalizer, hold it whenever you need a recharge. Your crystal toolkit should also contain a master energiser for the biomagnetic sheath: Clear Quartz.  Energising the biomagnetic sheath has an overall beneficial effect on your energy level in general but also makes your physical body feel more vibrant. [caption id="attachment_4173" align="alignleft" width="225"] Green Ridge Quartz c. Jeni Campbell/www.angeladditions[/caption] The Dantien: (on top of the sacral, just beneath navel). Area: The powerpoint. Physiology: Autonomic nervous and energy-conductive systems, regulation of the functioning of internal organs and involuntary processes such as breathing and heart beat. Sensory impulses to the brain. Effect: An adjunct to the sacral chakra and the point of balance for the physical body, the dantien is where Qi, lifeforce, is stored and your body earthed. This is your core energy source. Disruption here means that Qi cannot circulate efficiently and is not replenished and the auto immune system cannot function. If the dantien is too open, energy is constantly drained. When it is functioning well you are energised and power-full. Typical dis-eases relate to physical function and energy utilisation: nervous system dysfunctions, auto-immune diseases, cardiac problems, high blood pressure, orthostatic hypotension, palpitations, adrenal overload, chronic fatigue, M.E., Reynauds, Parkinson’s, digestive problems, diabetes, lightheadedness, powerlessness, feeling ill at ease in incarnation.

Sick building syndrome

Sick building syndrome is now widely recognised. It occurs when buildings are erected without thought being given to the energetic needs and well being of the people who will occupy them.

[caption id="attachment_4182" align="alignleft" width="300"] www.epscoindia.com[/caption] Sick building syndrome is now widely recognised. It occurs when buildings are erected without thought being given to the energetic needs and well being of the people who will occupy them. Lack of natural light, over-use of fluorescent tubes, poor air circulation or ventilation and non-opening windows, dry-air blown heating systems, man-made fibres and inappropriate construction materials all contribute and it is characterised by a high level of malaise or sick-leave due to chronic conditions amongst employees. If you have the misfortune to work in one of these buildings, simple remedies like plenty of pot plants especially Peace Lilies and Spider Plants, using daylight bulbs in desk lamps or ‘SAD’ lights, fountains or water moving over crystals, tea tree oil in heating system filters, wearing natural fibres, and burning a salt lamp can all assist. A more permanent change can, however, be effected by using the power of crystals to harmonise the vibrations. Layout for sick building syndrome Place appropriate crystals as shown on the diagram below and cleanse them regularly. If the syndrome is very severe, you may need to ask for the assistance of a dowser to move energy lines. Crystals for sick building syndrome: Sodalite, Lepidolite, Aragonite, Aventurine, Black Tourmaline, Shungite. For more information see Crystal Prescriptions vol.5  

Crystals For Grounding

One of the most prevalent causes of feeling vaguely unwell and out of sorts is being ungrounded.  Ungroundedness means you are not fully in your physical body, you are not in the present moment, and your energy is scattered in all directions.  Fortunately a simple exercise as you leave your bed in the morning will get you focussed and into your body. The Three Minute Ground Sit with your feet firmly on the floor. Hold your Smoky Quartz crystal in your left hand and place it over your sacral chakra just below your navel. Slowly breathe in for the count of five, hold it for the count of three, and breathe out for the count of seven.  Repeat seven times. As you breathe, you will feel the energy from the Smoky Quartz centering itself in your sacral chakra, the centre of your body.  Tell yourself firmly, “I am centred and one with my body”. Place the Smoky Quartz between your feet. Stand up and be aware of your connection to the earth chakra which anchors you gently in incarnation.  Tell yourself: “I am focussed and one with the earth.” Pick up your crystal and start your day. [caption id="attachment_4168" align="alignright" width="300"] Smoky Quartz c. Jeni Campbell/www.angeladditions.co.uk[/caption] And more intensive grounding: You’ll find this elsewhere on the site but I can’t emphasise strongly enough the importance of being grounded! Grounding is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself and ensure your well-being. Many people are vulnerable to invasion by negative energies simply because they do not have a strong enough connection to the planet. In other words they are ungrounded. If your boundaries are strong and you are rooted into the earth it acts like a firewall. Nothing detrimental can penetrate. But if your boundaries are diffuse or you are not connected to the planet, external energies may invade and drain. Ungroundedness occurs in people who are on a spiritual pathway, whether it be yoga, meditation or mindfulness, and who fail to keep contact between the earth and their physical body open. Having said that, if the earth’s own energies aren’t sparkling clean where you are, it may be necessary to protect the earth star and Gaia gateway chakras with crystal light when you ground yourself to the centre of the Earth. If earth healing is needed, check out Earth Blessings for indepth assistance. Symptoms of ungroundedness [caption id="attachment_4169" align="alignleft" width="171"] Image: violetztarz - DeviantArt[/caption] Mental confusion, unable to concentrate Inability to handle the everyday world Life and home are cluttered Eyes that show ‘no one home’ Spaced out, vague and unfocused Difficulty in motivating yourself Leaving everything to the last minute but not living in the moment Dizziness or ‘woozy headed’ Clumsiness and dyspraxia – you often bump into things Appearing to float several inches above the floor Sugar craving and a desire for junk food Constantly hungry but food doesn’t satisfy Falling asleep while meditating Always running late Car or electrical equipment breaks down regularly Irritability without due cause Insomnia and restless sleep Unwanted out-of-body experiences Sense of looking down on yourself from above Body feels heavy and ‘alien’ Emotional and highly over-reactive Constantly exhausted Great ideas or plans that never come to fruition Belching or breaking wind frequently Anxiety or unease with no apparent cause Displaying the same symptoms as someone you were just with Mood changes suddenly when passing a stranger or entering a room Bank account is in the red Solutions to ungroundedness In addition to keeping the earth-connector chakras cleansed and well-balanced, grounding crystals in your pockets or around your bed can assist in anchoring you to the earth. Belly breathing also helps to ground you to the planet and the grounding cord meditation practised daily until it becomes second nature is extremely effective. It doesn’t restrict you to the planet, indeed it can make journeys to other dimensions much more powerful because it enables you to bring the information back into the physical plane of awareness. Belly breathing [caption id="attachment_4167" align="alignleft" width="300"] Poppy Jasper c. Jeni Campbell www.angeladditions.co.uk[/caption] Before you begin, place a grounding crystal such as Flint or Hematite at your feet. Hold a belly breathing crystal such as Jasper or Brown Carnelian loosely over your dantien (just below your navel). Stand or sit with your feet firmly on the floor and your knees relaxed. Letting your shoulders hang low and loose, take a long, slow breath. Deliberately push out your ribs and belly and pull the breath deep into the base of your lungs towards the crystal. Feel your ribs expanding outwards at the back and sides, and your back and solar plexus opening up. Breathe in for a count of four (increase the count with practise), hold the breath for a count of two, and exhale slowly pulling your belly and ribs in to expel all the air for a count of ten. Press your ribs in with your arms if necessary. Rest a moment and take another breath. Repeat eight times more (stop immediately if you feel lightheaded and take your attention down to your feet, putting your feet on the earthing crystal or bouncing your feet firmly on the earth). Return to your normal breathing pattern but remember to pull the air deep down into your lungs. The grounding cord Stand with your feet slightly apart, well balanced on your knees and hips. Feet flat on the floor. Place a Flint or other grounding stone at your feet and hold Poppy Jasper or other suitable stone over your dantien. Picture the earth star chakra about a foot beneath your feet opening like the petals of a water lily. Feel two roots growing from the soles of your feet down to meet at the earth star. The two roots twine together and pass down through the earth star and the Gaia gateway, going deep into the earth. They pass through the outer mantle, down past the solid crust and deep into the molten magma. When the entwined roots have passed through the magma, they reach the big iron crystal ball at the centre of the planet. The roots hook themselves around this ball, holding you firmly in incarnation and helping you to be grounded in incarnation. Energy and protection can flow up this root to keep you energised and safe. Allow the roots to pass up from the earth star through your feet, up your legs and the knee chakras and into your hips. At your hips the roots move across to meet in the base chakra, expanding from there to the sacral and the dantien. The energy that flows up from the centre of the Earth can be stored just below your navel in the dantien. If you are non-visual: massage the centre of the soles of your feet until they tingle and then place them firmly on the earth with a grounding crystal between them. Sense your grounding root growing from there and then up to a dantien crystal that you hold just below your navel. Note: Whenever you are in an area of seriously disturbed earth energy, protect your earth star chakra by visualising a large protective crystal all around it. The root will still be able to pass down to the centre of the earth to bring powerful energy to support you, and the crystal will help to transmute and stabilise the negative energy. If your boundaries are too diffuse: Complete the grounding cord exercise first and then: Picture a large crystal bubble growing from the earth star chakra to enclose you, going all around your body and up to the Soul Star chakra above your head at arms length from your body. Then picture another crystal bubble going from the Gaia gateway to the Stellar Gateway chakra. Wear a Labradorite, Healer’s Gold or other boundary or firewall crystal pendant at all times or carry Boji Stones in your pockets. [caption id="attachment_4166" align="alignleft" width="300"] Labradorite c. Jeni Campbell/www.angeladditions.co.uk[/caption] Boundaries: instant protection I make no apology for including one of my favourite protection practices. I find it invaluable for strengthening weak boundaries and providing emergency protection. A tiny piece of Amber is all you need: [caption id="attachment_4164" align="alignright" width="200"] Amber c. www.exquisitecrystals.com[/caption] ‘The Amber Melt’ Close your eyes and breathe deeply, grounding yourself on the earth. Breathe gently and hold a piece of Amber over your head (or place it at your head if you’re lying down). Put all your attention into the crystal. Feel the Amber slowly melting and trickling like honey all around your auric field until it completely coats it, meeting under your feet. Feel how safe it is within your Amber cloak, how secure, and how you can easily find your centre and connection with the Earth within this beautiful crystal. Allow the crystal to draw off and transmute any negative energy or fearful emotions, de-stressing you and filling you with positive self-regard and inner peace. Feel how, from the top of your head down into your heart, and on down to the earth beneath your feet, you have a central core of deep peace you can lean and rely on. When you’re ready, withdraw your attention from the crystal but leave your bubble in place so that when you return your attention into the room you’ll still have that core of inner peace. Stamp your foot to ground yourself back into the everyday once more. This also works well using Polychrome Jasper or Eye of the Storm (Judy’s Jasper). The different colours naturally present in the Jasper weave strands of protection all around your auric field. Wear the stones constantly to give you continued protection.

[caption id="attachment_4161" align="alignleft" width="300"] Raw Shungite is more effective for catalysing water than Elite or Noble Shungite (which is shown above).[/caption] To become biologically active and detoxifying, water needs to have Shungite immersed in it for at least forty eight hours. However, once the first batch is made, you can simply refill the filter jug every time you use some of the water so that it is constantly replenished. Wash the jug and the bag of Shungite at least once a week depending on how much water you have used (you can store the activated water and return it to the jug). Place the Shungite in the sun for a few hours to recharge or use a proprietary crystal recharging essence. I find raw Shungite more effective than the silvery tumbles, but, no matter how often the non-vitreous type of Shungite has been washed, it does tend to leave a very fine suspension of black particles in the water. I have drunk this for several years now without any ill effects and, indeed, I believe it to have contributed greatly to my overall well-being. Making the water: You will need: 2 litre filter jug Fine mesh 2” bag of raw Shungite (10-100gm) Place the mesh bag of Shungite in the base of the filter jug (if using tap water you can also use a commercial filter if the jug is provided with one). Pour water into the jug until it is full. Stand it aside for 48 hours. Then top up the water each time it is used. Cleanse the Shungite frequently under running water and re-energise.

(The one I’m not allowed to write about in my books) [caption id="attachment_4156" align="alignleft" width="300"] Support and unconditional love encapsulated in a stone: Rose Quartz image c. www.irocks.com[/caption] Disclaimer No medical claims are made for the crystals mentioned here and the information given is not intended to act as a substitute for medical treatment. If in any doubt about their use, a qualified crystal healing practitioner should be consulted. In the context of this website, illness is a dis-ease, the final manifestation of spiritual, environmental, psychological, karmic, emotional or mental imbalance or distress. Healing means bringing mind, body and spirit back into balance and facilitating evolution for the soul, it does not imply a cure. In accordance with crystal healing consensus, all stones are referred to as crystals regardless of whether or not they have a crystalline structure. Using The Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle cards for healing at a Wolverhampton workshop. The recipient had just had an operation (not cancer-related) and the compassion is palpable so I couldn’t resist using this as an illustration. Right, now we’ve got the disclaimer out of the way (required for legal reasons) we can turn our attention to what you can do to support yourself if you receive the mind-numbing diagnosis of cancer. All is not lost. As a good friend of mine – who has survived a ‘terminal diagnosis’ for over twenty five years – said to me recently: ‘I’m not dying of cancer. I’m living with it.’ It can be a powerful means of self-growth on your spiritual journey. The first thing I would suggest is that you read the wonderful Margaret Cahill blog and book Under Cover of Darkness, my journey through mantle cell lymphoma. Make it your guide and your light shining in the darkness. It’s full of sensible advice and insight into smoothing your journey. And what you can expect and how you can help yourself alongside conventional medical treatment. It’s also helpful if someone close to you has been diagnosed. [caption id="attachment_4148" align="alignleft" width="324"] The lovely Margaret, ever smiling through the darkest of days. We carried her photo down the Nile as a healing support.[/caption] My cabin steward created this lovely ‘bringing in the light’ spiral of healing Nubian Temple stones for Margaret and her partner Stephen. I need to make another trip for more supplies of these powerful stones. Second, of course, turn to your crystals. They don’t promise to cure, but they do support you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually as part of an holistic approach. Here are my other favourites. Green Ridge Quartz Green Ridge Quartz: the gunkier the better! This one has been lightly cleaned to show the beauty beneath but you can see the dark flakes of iron. Iron-coated Green Ridge Quartz is a unique find. The iron coating gradually flakes away and removes toxicity as it does so. It reveals beautiful Golden Quartz. Place a large one under your bed or a healing couch. See www.angeladditions.co.uk and email Jeni as we have plenty in stock but reserve it for those who need it.   Klinopotilolith [caption id="attachment_4146" align="alignleft" width="187"] Klinopotilolith – an excellent chemo support (make essence by the indirect method only and wash hands after use).[/caption] A powerful chemo drug is made from Klinopotilolith but the stone itself is toxic so handle carefully with due precautions. Anecdotal evidence has shown that taping it over the site of a tumour can be beneficial in relieving discomfort. It can also be made into a crystal essence by the indirect method (see Crystal Essences) and applied to the skin over the site.

[caption id="attachment_4149" align="alignright" width="320"] Menalite – perfect for supporting female organs[/caption] Menalite Menalite is the divine feminine encapsulated in a crystal. It is helpful through all transitions. Place over the womb and ovaries for support and nurturing. Green Calcite Green Calcite – excellent anti-emetic As cancer treatment so often causes nausea Green Calcite is so helpful. I wish I’d taken a photo of Margaret curled around a huge piece in her hospital bed. She found it helpful as so many other people have. It creates a space of quiet calm too, dissolving fear. Shungite [caption id="attachment_4153" align="alignleft" width="261"] Shungite[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4152" align="alignleft" width="230"] Shungite water filter bags[/caption] Personally, I would never be without my Shungite pendant and my Shungite water (see Crystal Essences for how to make it). It is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-cancer, mopping up free radicals and toxins of all kinds. It soaks up the EMF emissions that so often make us sick and energetically protects during scans and radiotherapy. Drink at least a litre a day of the biologically activated water to support your immune system. Two if you can manage it. Eye of the Storm (Judy’s Jasper) [caption id="attachment_4145" align="alignright" width="284"] Eye of the Storm (Judy’s Jasper) – keep calm and centred[/caption] I love this one for creating such a quiet calm haven in the middle of a storm. Dissolving fear, it assures you all will be well. Keep it by your side at all times. Uranophane Not for the faint hearted or inexperienced this one as it’s actually radioactive. But in the hands of an experienced therapist it can give support during treatment. It supports nuclear-based medicine and radiation therapy and acts as a homoeopathic catalyst releasing karmic, environmental and soul damage caused by previous radiation. Uranophane subtly realigns the vibrations of the biomagnetic sheath so that the energy shifts are assimilated into the physical and etheric bodies. Uranophane: specialised support during radiation treatment. Handle with extreme caution under the guidance of a qualified crystal therapist. Image c. www.minfind.com Or you can use Malachite, Shungite or Smoky Quartz to soak up the radiation vibes and keep you energetically [caption id="attachment_4147" align="alignleft" width="297"] Malachite[/caption] cleansed. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="850"] Smoky Quartz[/caption] Peridot Peridot is recommended for those suffering from lung or breast cancer. It eases fear, especially the irrational sort that strikes out of the blue and the kind of resentment that says ‘why me, what have I ever done to deserve this? Why didn’t it happen to…’ Smoky Spirit Quartz [caption id="attachment_4155" align="alignright" width="139"] Smoky Spirit Quartz wand with Smoky Elestial and Amethyst: excellent pain relief providers. Image c. Michael Illas[/caption] If the situation is terminal, there is nothing better than the soul midwife crystal Spirit Quartz to facilitate a gentle transition to the next world. It helps to bring together and heal the family too.

Crystals For Your Immune System

Your immune system is your first line of defence against invading organisms.  If it is working well and is balanced, you will have a quicker recovery time from minor illnesses like colds and flu.  However, some illnesses such as M.E and viral infections are caused because the immune system is underactive and others, such as…

[caption id="attachment_4137" align="alignleft" width="400"] https://www.aids.gov/images/immune-system-101.jpg[/caption] Your immune system is your first line of defence against invading organisms.  If it is working well and is balanced, you will have a quicker recovery time from minor illnesses like colds and flu.  However, some illnesses such as M.E and viral infections are caused because the immune system is underactive and others, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus, because it is overactive. Crystals find the right balance.  The major healing point for your immune system is over the thymus gland located in the centre of your chest about a hand’s breadth below your collar bone. Bloodstone is an excellent stone for the immune system because of its amphoteric effect.  If the immune system is overactive, it sedates it.  If it is underactive, it stimulates it.  A the first sign of a cold, flu or other infectious or bacterial illness, tape a Bloodstone over your thymus and leave in place for several hours. Cherry Quartz and Emerald Quartz are two new crystals that work well with the immune system. You need to check out which goes where – see below – as one sedates and one stimulates the immune system. Stimulating the immune system: To stimulate the immune system, place an immune stimulator on your thymus (centre of your chest) and a Clear Quartz in the centre of your forehead, and lie with your hands in your groin crease on each side for ten minutes. Calming the immune system: To calm the immune system, place an immune calmer on your thymus (centre of your chest) and a Clear Quartz in the centre of your forehead, and lie with your hands in your groin crease on each side for ten minutes. To balance the immune system The Lemniscate grid laid over the heart seed chakra (base of breastbone), heart and higher heart (thymus, mid chest), stimulates or soothes the immune system and ensures the well-being of the heart. The crystals balance the electrical system of the heart with the immune system. It also balances and aligns the three-chambered heart chakra connecting you to unconditional, universal love. You will need to place the crystals and then monitor the heartbeat to ascertain whether an immune stimulating or soothing crystal needs to be laid over the higher heart (thymus) chakra. Laying the grid: You will need: 1 Pinkish-burgundy crystal or immune stimulator 1 Emerald-green crystal or immune soother Grounding crystal for the feet Hold the crystals in your hand and state your intention. Place a grounding crystal at your feet. Place one crystal above the heart on the higher heart (thymus) chakra. Place one over the heart seed at the base of the breastbone. Check the heartbeat. It will quickly indicate which crystal needs to go above and which below. If it feels too rapid or pulsates poundingly, or is too slow and heavy, switch the crystals around. Use the power of your mind or a crystal wand to trace the lemniscates, cross the circles over your heart. If dizziness results, breathe deeply and push the energy down towards the crystal at your feet for transmutation. When the layout is complete, remove the crystals. Stand up slowly and ground yourself by stamping your feet. Immune Stimulator Crystals Amethyst, Bloodstone, Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Sodalite, Green Aventurine, Lepidolite, Quantum Quattro, Que Sera, Cherry Quartz. Immune Calmer Crystals Emerald, Fuchsite, Emerald Quartz, Ruby, Hematite. Cherry Quartz and Emerald Quartz [caption id="attachment_4136" align="alignleft" width="450"] Emerald Quartz[/caption]   Source: Tanzania Appearance: Combination of clear Quartz with flecks of colour throughout. Colour: Cherry Quartz: purplish-red. Emerald Quartz: emerald green Composition: Cherry Quartz: Lepidolite (Lithium) mica in Quartz Emerald Quartz: Fuchsite mica in Quartz Qualities: Emerald Quartz is an opener, Cherry Quartz a charger. Together in synergistic partnership, these gentle stones restore the rhythm of life. Resetting the whole physiological and subtle energy systems. If a polarity has been reversed, the crystals restore the correct polarity. These two crystals acting together form a natural pacemaker for the heart creating an infinity loop over it. They calm a pounding heart and regulate an erratic pulse or stimulate a sluggish heartbeat. Place one above the heart on the higher heart (thymus) chakra and one over the heart seed at the base of the breastbone. The heartbeat quickly indicates which needs to go above and which below. Together they act on the electrical system of the heart, regulating it. At a subtle level the combination expands the energy of the heart chakra, creating a greater capacity for the giving and receiving of unconditional love. Cherry Quartz placed over the thymus stimulates deep breathing with more air being taken in, resulting in reoxygenation of the whole body. The combination also stimulates (Cherry) or soothes (Emerald) the autoimmune system returning it to balance when over- or under-active. Placing the crystals on the heart seed and higher heart chakras releases spinal tension and contraction, extending the spine. A noticeable reduction in arthritic pain is quickly produced. Emotionally, placing the crystals over the heart and then placing two more in the groin creases, or between the thumb and first finger of each hand, which is then placed in the groin crease, enables the releasing of old ties and resentment and encourages speaking about the hurts incurred. Once the release has taken place, the stones soothe the heart and stimulate forgiveness. Using the crystals before bed ensures an excellent night’s sleep and is particularly useful in cases of prolonged insomnia. Healing: heart and circulation, autoimmune and respiratory systems, spinal contraction, insomnia, arthritis. My thanks to Gillian McBriar and Terrie Celest for assisting with the research.
