A Crystal for Every Season of Experience – NEW CRYSTALS Plus How Crystal Consciousness is Mirroring Our Shifts


singing4I’m finding more and more people being drawn to work with crystals and/or are finding themselves suddenly attracting crystal friends into their lives for the first time. I get a lot of questions and inquiries about crystals and which would be good for certain things people are working on and I also hear a lot about children asking specifically for certain crystals by name (who have never been told anything about crystals in “this” life so far), and are finding particular crystal energies to be supportive for their highly developed consciousness.

The types of crystals people used to be attracted to is also changing, finding that they are now drawn to ones their body and soul are calling out for rather than mirroring the aesthetic preferences they have usually liked. And many new crystals and stones are making themselves known to all of us, that we never had on our radar before, because they are so aligned with the New Earth experience we are creating – hence becoming a part of the collective consciousness experience, as we become more aware and ready.

I also find that with all of the varying stages in each individual’s unique process, a variety of crystal energy is showing up to support the different parts of the path being worked on. And this is also why we are seeing more crystals flowing in and out of our lives more than they used to, as they are only needed for short periods of time to assist with current focuses and shifts, and then are ready to move on to other keepers to help them in similar ways. Of course there are some that are our loyal partners in life too, and will likely be with us indefinitely.

carn5Crystals have a collective consciousness and so they are attuned to the greater good in their service and therefore will be happy working with a variety people. I have also found things shift in my own experience with my crystals. I used to be more protective of my crystals and keep them in my own experience to work with only. But I have in the last several months started receiving the message from them that they were wanting very much for me to share them and allow others to experience their energy and support when they are in my presence or during classes I teach.

This feels to be reflecting shifts I am making, along with how that synergizes with the collective experience.

With the ability to cleanse and charge crystals with Reiki, as well as having the ability to program crystals, I have found no need to worry about things I may have before, and to relax in trust of supporting service for the highest good of all concerned.

Things are constantly shifting and so I feel it is important to allow these shifts to flow in all aspects of our lives and not block energy, if in fact you ARE receiving nudges about things that may be different to your regular practices. The Age of Aquarius and this Age of Intuition is based on collective sharing, unconventional vision and new ideas, and trust in inner guidance, knowing it is always connected to the greater good.

citrine5In the shifts we have been experiencing, there is also a blend of high vibrational crystals coming into our experience that are powerfully transformative and pure in unity consciousness, as well as crystals that are helping us to balance, fully ground ourselves, restore our vitality, and help us to manifest all of the things we have been envisioning and opening up to energetically – assisting the creation of new realities.

There is a tendency to forget about the body temple and to work with high crystal energy stones that have the ability to take us “out of body” and in many ways “escape” life – especially something many souls subconsciously may feel drawn to do because they are not fully comfortable living here on Earth at this time, and may be more connected to their cosmic Source.

However, doing this may mean that you are unable to truly achieve your potential or remember why you came here to Earth at this time. If you feel like this, it may be beneficial to look at ways to integrate your experience, which may be by working with lower Chakra connected crystals and stones, as one potential.

This may already be happening for some of you. I know it did for me. And as you continue to trust your inner guidance, you will find how this continually shifts in terms of which crystals you will be drawn to for assistance at any given time.

By using crystals of a more “base” nature you can help yourself to fully ground into the physical, and restore your vitality, passion for life, creative power, strength, and manifesting abilities. They will also help you to draw energy through all of your Chakras in more balance, while connecting a circuit between all of your Chakras and into the Earth Chakra to connect your heart with that of Gaia’s herself.

apacheGrounding crystals of the three lower Chakra’s energy will help you to move energy through the body, which may help to enhance poor circulation, as well as may aid in the increase of your energy levels, general vitality, overall well being, and zest for living.

All of our parts are necessary and important. And so too, then, are tools that mirror all of these varying frequencies that can assist every level of our experience. These are some of the reasons I have been guided to offer a variety of crystals and stones, some many of us know well, and others that are more new to our current life experiences, along with a spectrum of lower and higher Chakra energies to assist anyone at any stage of their personal journey.

I try to also provide a spectrum of price ranges that can fit anyone’s needs, as well as created the Crystal Illuminations sacred paintings to provide meditational sacred art that synergized crystal energy with creative energy.

I continually update my Etsy Shop: Crystal Illumination with new crystals and sacred paintings, when I have time, to keep the flow moving, as crystals continue to find new keepers. I follow my intuition as to the Divine timing certain crystal energies would be most supportive to put out there.

I just added new inventory of amazing crystals (Lower, Upper, and Heart Chakra connected), as many have moved on, and will add more again in another week or so, as I have time. Some of these include a Trinity of Magical Singing Lemurian Seed Crystal Laser Wands, a stunning Fire Agate, Natural Lemurian Citrine Quartz with Rainbows, an amazing Natural Rainbow Anandalite Quartz from India, a gorgeous Carnelian, Apache Tears, and Icy Blue Kyanite.

ananda3I’m still in the process of creating the new Crystal Illuminations paintings – of which there will be 13 in total to look forward to. In the meantime, there are still a few in the shop available still.

There is potentially something new I feel percolating, which I was receiving a vision today of while at the beach. So keep checking back for what may be coming up, plus all the new I mentioned already.

Everything unfolds as is perfect always, but if something calls to you with a strong nudge, you may not want to wait too long, as I have had a few people do so and were sad to find someone else follow their nudges before they had a chance to trust their own.

Life is a journey of remembering our Divinity and what ever tools or methods you are drawn to, to support empowering that experience is perfect. Crystals are living beings that not only love, as their focus through the particular frequency they are attuned to, but also light up from the love we share from our frequency merging with theirs through conscious cocreation.

Crystals and Stones for Support with Grounding, Integration and Revitalization


I’ve written about the integration process we are involved in as we journey towards natural harmony within, with each other, and with the earth and cosmos. Coupled with the solar flares, CME’s (coronal mass ejection), etc. and DNA restructuring taking place, this all makes for quite a load of energy we are experiencing. This can be used advantageously if we keep balanced and grounded, which enables us to flow with the change and harness it for profound manifesting. Staying balanced, integrated and grounded are essential to being evolved humans that create, live and exude wholeness at our highest potentials.

As I shared previously, I was prompted to create a crystal elixir to aid in my own process and have been taking it since the Aquarius New Moon about 11 days ago. It’s quite a potent mix, which included some very grounding, integrating, revitalizing and healing/cleansing stones. I also have been wearing more of my grounding pendants and rings, rather than my usual expansion crystals, like a raw ruby Ganesh ring, a giant red coral heart pendant and a black obsidian necklace. I also have all my grounding, integrating and manifesting crystals on my desk where I work everyday and carry them with me as I intuit the need. I believe crystals embody this beautiful integration of divinity and earthiness, as they hold within them energetic keys to access connection to all of the elements – each like a master magician that love supporting us to become our own.

For those that may also be feeling the tug towards different crystals and stones in response to symptoms and shifting, but aren’t sure which would be good, for those wanting more grounding and integration in their lives, or for those just curious, I thought I’d share a little insight on a few stones that can be helpful at this time and you can see which you are drawn to for your personal journey. The information here (gathered from several sources and myself) is only a snapshot of these amazing stones’ metaphysical properties.

Crystals and stones can be purchased both in their natural beauty as a raw, amorphous stone, or as a cut and polished stone. Faceted stones, some say, can have an intensified energy that is created by the cutting process. And if cut into geometric shapes it can also act as a type of laser. But again, it all depends on you and your intentions and the way the energy of the stone blends with your own. I am drawn to and have both as friends, but recently have found myself more drawn to raw stones, perhaps due to the earthy nature they remind me of and being attracted to their natural essence and inner beauty that emanates their uniqueness. Each are equally as potent, however raw/uncut crystals can be better for elixirs, but not a must.

Whatever shape and type resonates with you, is the perfect choice always and will produce exactly the results you are looking for and needing. Like with anything, follow your intuition and heart. Higher prices and eye-pleasing aesthetics don’t denote personal fulfillment.

If you are interested in a custom crystal pendant specifically designed and chosen for you and the energies you desire to support your journey now, please contact me with questions and commission requests. My company, Emerald Bridge, will have new Joyful Earth Crystals available shortly as well to choose from. If you are interested in crystal elixirs, also drop me an email, and one can be custom created specifically for your needs. Specific elixirs will be available soon to choose from as well.

Carnelian

Carnelian grounds and anchors you in the present reality, while stabilizing. Excellent for restoring vitality and motivation, gives courage, promotes positive life choices and motives for success. It helps you to trust yourself and to get to the core of you – helping to overcome negative conditioning and encouraging steadfastness. Carnelian is full of the life force and activates the base chakra, while protecting against fear, rage, resentment and envy, while banishing sorrow. It calms anger and banishes emotional negativity while replacing it with a love of life. Helps produce inspiration from and connectedness with the spiritual worlds and brings that into the physical experience. It assists with awareness of the understanding of the emotional state and how it affects the inner condition of the self. Provides a strong, stabilizing, yet tender energy. Carnelian’s message is: “Since one IS love, there is nothing to do but to offer the love – each offering of love bringing an exponential increase in the quantity of love returned.”

Jade

Jade stabilizes the personality and integrates the mind with the body. It provides purity and serenity and increases love and nurturing, while protecting and harmonizing. Jade releases negative thoughts and aids emotional release, especially irritability. It can aid release of suppressed emotions via dreams, in which case you can place jade under your pillow prior to sleeping. Encourages you to become your authentic self and assists in recognizing yourself as a spiritual being on a human journey. Jade cleanses as it aids the elimination organs and assists supra-adrenal glands (a biggy for people these days) and helps to remove toxins. Brings devotion to your purpose and realization of your potential. Jade is known as a sacred stone by the ancient and some current primitive tribes. It allows you to access the knowledge used during the Mayan “dreamtime,” as it help you connect with the elders of the Mayan culture. The Mayans revered jade as the “Sovereign of Harmony” facilitating peace with the physical, emotional, and intellectual structures, as well as with the materialistic world. It was said to bring accord to the environment, to transmute negativity and instill resourcefulness.  It promotes balancing of your needs with the requirements of the day, allowing you to nurture the things that are of prime importance to well-being. Jade provides confidence, self-assuredness, self-reliance and self-sufficiency.

Bloodstone

Bloodstone is a form of quartz that often presents as dark green with red flecks through it.  Bloodstone is an excellent crystal to use for purification of surroundings and the self. Excellent blood cleanser and powerful healer. Helps to banish negativity and known as an “audible oracle” – giving off sounds in order to provide guidance. An excellent grounding and protecting stone, helping to keep out undesirable influences. It is a powerful revitalizer and gives courage, encourages selflessness and idealism, and aids recognition that chaos precedes transformation, while it assists you in acting int he present moment. Bloodstone calms the mind, dispels confusion and enhances decision making. Revitalizes the mind if exhausted and helps with adjusting to new circumstances. Helps in grounding the heart energy and reduces irritability, aggressiveness and impatience, while bringing spirituality into everyday life. An energy cleanser and immune stimulator. Bloodstone can be used to heal the ancestral line and cleanses the lower chakras while realigning their energies.

Red Calcite

Calcite in general is a world teacher for humanity, facilitating macrocosmic awareness and appreciation of the creative forces of nature. Red calcite is energizing and detoxifying, increases life force, reduces stress and hypertension, soothes imbalances that have brought on fatigue and exhaustion and helps activate inner reserves of energy. It helps rejuvenate and revitalize the entire physical body and assists in all physical healing because of its relationship with the base chakra, which is the root of all physicality. Red calcite increases energy, uplifts emotions, aids willpower and opens heart chakra. It removes stagnant energy and dissolves blockages that prevent you from stepping forward in your life. Red Calcite resonates with the base chakras, which it energizes and heals. It alleviates fear while bringing understanding of the source of the fear. It has so much vitality that it can energize a party. Red calcite brings stability to your will and increases inner strength, helps ease and release fear (calming over-stimulation of adrenaline caused by fear), helps bring peace to feeling you must “battle” things in your life, helps center and ground you while helping you release negative emotions and to feel emotionally protected so that you can feel safe to open a closed heart chakra to attract love and receive and give more love in your life.

Raw Ruby Ganesh

Ruby

Rubies release blocked energy, clean and clear blocked chakras and offer protection against psychic attack and vampirism.  This makes them excellent crystals for grounding. Excellent stone for energy and providing vigor to life. Energizes and balances. (Can overstimulate in delicate or irritable people so keep that in mind for your own constitution). Encourages passion for life and improves motivation towards realistic goals. Balances and stimulates the heart. Ruby promotes positive dreams and clear visualization. It is an abundance and passion stone. Ruby brings a positive, courageous state of mind that is sharp and able to concentrate with heightened awareness. It brings up anger and negative energy for transmutation and encourages removal of negative things from your path. Because it is a dynamic stone it fires up your enthusiasm and helps you overcome exhaustion with strong vigor, while calming hyperactivity. It detoxifies the body, blood and lymph and great for the circulatory system and heart. (It is stimulating to the adrenals so if you are experiencing over-activity with your adrenals and having adrenal fatigue, then you may want to use it sparingly or until you feel more balanced with that)

Red Coral Heart

Red Coral

Coral in general helps to quiet the emotions and to bring peace within the self. It facilitates intuition, visualization, imagination and helps to both understand and use the mystical qualities. It can bring one into communication with the Ancient Ones of the world and expedite and accelerate the transfer of knowledge. Once thought to be a plant, coral has been called the “garden of the sea”. The ancient Egyptians placed pieces of coral in tombs as a protection against evil spirits because they believed that each piece truly contained a drop of divine blood. Since coral is a stone of organic origin, it can be used to reconnect with nature and the variety of it’s wonders. Red coral helps you to be in harmony with the natural forces of the universe and with the wilderness within your own being. It provides for practicality and helps with balancing the material with the spiritual – further aligning you with the Source of all wisdom. It activates and opens the base chakra to stimulate energetic pursuit of pre-determined goals. It also protects from depression and despondency. Coral symbolizes life and blood force energy in many cultures.

Citrine

Citrine dissipates negative energies and promotes inner calm, while balancing Yin and Yang and aligning the chakras with the ethereal plane.  Citrine cleanses the aura and aligns the etheric body with the physical, making citrine wonderful crystals for grounding. A powerful cleanser and regenerator, it is warming, energizing and highly creative. It absorbs, transmutes, dissipates and grounds negative energy and is extremely protective for the environment as well as an aura protector. It energizes every level of life and has the ability to cleanse the chakras especially the solar plexus. It activates, opens and energizes the naval and solar plexus chakras, directing, via personal power, creativity and intelligent decisiveness, the energy necessary to enhance the physical body – cleansing and balancing the subtle bodies while aligning them with the physical. So it is a good integrating stone. It emits an elevated energy and stimulates intuitiveness and promotes contact with the higher forces of intelligence. (Since it also activates the crown chakra, awakens the higher mind, and opens intuition while integrating, then it can also be one to use with discernment if strictly wanting an “only” grounding stone, as there is also an etheric essence to it.) It is an abundance stone that teaches how to manifest and attract all good things. It has joyful, generous, sharing energy so negativity, gloom and discord can’t be present. Raises self-esteem and confidence and removes destructive tendencies. Enhances individuality, motivation, creativity, self-expression, positive energy, enjoyment and inner peace. Helps release negative traits and fears and helps overcome anger and fear of responsibility as it helps you move into the flow of feelings and aids in becoming emotionally balanced. Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy, but dissipates and transmutes it, working out challenges on both the physical and subtle levels.

Black Obsidian

Black Obsidian increases awareness and dispels illusions so that we are able to be more grounded in day to day reality – excellent grounding crystals. It’s a very powerful and creative stone that grounds the soul and spiritual forces into the physical plane by helping to bring them under the direction of the conscious will and making it possible to manifest spiritual energies on earth. It forces facing up to your true self by revealing shadow qualities for release, including from the ancestral and family line, as well as past lives. It reverses misuse of power and helps address power issues by teaching that to be empowered is not to hold personal power to yourself only, but to channel power for the good of all. Black Obsidian is protective, as it repels negativity and unloving thoughts. Supports during change and helps remove physical disorders, as well as release old loves.

Hematite Rabbit

Hematite

Hematite is a stone of iron ore and generally presents as silvery black or red.  Hematite invokes emotional grounding and balances opposing energies, as it strengthens our connection with the Earth.  Hematite assists with focusing the mind and brings peace and balance, enabling one to deal effectively with emotional situations.  Hematite dissolves negativity and has powerful balancing qualities making them excellent crystals for grounding. It is particularly effective at grounding and protecting as it harmonizes mind, body and spirit. Helps balance the meridians and can help address yin imbalances with its strong yang element. It dissolves negativity and helps restore peace and harmony to the body. It’s a stone of strength and helps with self-esteem and timidity, aids survivability, enhances willpower and confidence. Helps remove self-limitations and aids overcoming compulsions and addictions. Hematite stimulates focus, enhances memory and brings mind’s attention to basic survival needs. It helps restore, strengthen and regulate blood and can draw heat from the body. They can also be helpful with protection from EMFs (ElectroMagnetic Field).
