CRYSTALS WHICH ARE BROKEN IN OUR CARE: what it means

This is addressing the second part of a question posed to me (the first part of the question is found here). The questioner asked: “Sometimes [crystals]  jump from my hand or I drop another crystal on them accidentally, etc. I am brand new at this and don’t know how to proceed. Thank you” – K. S. CRYSTALS WHICH BREAK WHILE IN OUR CARE If you live with crystals for long, there will unfortunately come a day when breakage

Storing Crystal – Best Practices

Hello fellow crystal lovers! In this blog post I am going to answer a question I recently received. It also addresses other questions which seem to pop up on occasion, one of which I will answer in another post. Here is the question: I have been purchasing tons of tumbles, quartz, and other minerals. Because I have a very destructive cat, I have to keep them stored in plastic craft boxes wrapped with bubble wrap

BARNACLE QUARTZ CRYSTAL – REVISIT

We’re going to revisit all the quartz types, using some drawings from my Crystal Mandala books (in which I have drawn a mandala of each type of crystal, condensing the information to 4 to 5 items to make remembering easier). This week we’re going to revisit Barnacle quartz crystals. First, what are Barnacles? Barnacles are small crystals attached to a larger crystal. They almost appear to be glued on. They aren’t penetrating the larger crystal (in which case,

YIN/YANG QUARTZ CRYSTALS – Physically, What Makes a Crystal Yin/Yang ?

The last couple of posts, we have been reviewing Feminine and Masculine crystals. Before we finish the three part series by talking about Yin/Yang (part Masculine, part Feminine) crystals, first a note: As always, whenever I mention Masculine or Feminine in regard to crystals, people tend to flip their lids! This time was no exception. It would seem that in our societal complex right now, anything to do with “gender” is triggering knee-jerk reactions in

FEMININE QUARTZ CRYSTALS – Physically, What Makes a Crystal Feminine ?

Today we’re going to revisit Feminine quartz crystals, with the distinction that we’re talking about what a “Feminine” quartz crystal looks like. We’re discussing whether a crystal is called Feminine by features only, not by energy. In the past I have called this an “anatomy lesson” because basically we’ll be discussing whether a crystal presents physically what has been described as Feminine. The next two posts we’ll revisit Masculine and Yin/Yang quartz crystals. I have described this is

CRYSTALS AND OUR PETS AND PLANTS

Today we’re going to discuss the different ways we might work with crystal to increase the vibration of our non-human family (and how they likewise might enjoy these interactions). We’ll talk about cats, dogs, fish, birds, plants and trees… CATS AND DOGS Cats and dogs react to crystals in different ways. For example, my friend Renee has a bowl of crystals that her cat likes to touch. She said it uses its little paw and moves them

HELP! WHICH CRYSTAL TYPE SHOULD I CHOOSE!?

There are a LOT of different crystal configurations from which to choose. I’m not talking about different KINDS of crystals (such as amethyst, rose quartz, etc) I’m talking about only the different TYPES of clear quartz crystal here. Specifically, the different shapes in which it presents, each with slightly different metaphysical and healing energetic properties. Shapes, such as Barnacle, Bridge, Double Terminated, Extra-Terrestrial, Faden and Growth Interference, just to name a few. I’ve written a series

LIGHTWORKERS, CRYSTALS AND THESE TROUBLED TIMES

First, what is a Lightworker? Lightworkers are healers, masters and servants of humanity who have contracted to come back at this time, when we know we can be of the most service. We come in all shapes and sizes, with many different skill sets and areas of expertise, with the common goal of service; service to mankind, service to the Earth and all of her many inhabitants. To be sure, it’s not an easy task for

CRYSTALS AND SIZE – IS BIGGER REALLY BETTER?

I’ve had this question more than once, so thought I would address it here… What do you do when you buy a crystal online, but when it arrives, it is much smaller than you expected? Will it still work? Obviously if you are looking for a crystal for jewelry or to fit in a certain place (say a desk or coffee table), size might matter. In this way, convenience and use play a part in

CRYSTAL MURAL WALLPAPER from MuralsWallpaper.com (Part 2)

Hello again! This is the last of a two part ‘series’ on a crystal mural we recently hung in our home. If you missed part one (the hanging process) you can read that here. In this post I want to talk a bit about the wallpaper pattern I chose and why I chose it. Venus (my Crystal Guide) also will weigh in on the benefits of pictures of crystals such as this mural. WHY THIS PATTERN?
