Violet Flame ~ Crystal Illuminations Painting


Crystal Illumination - Violet Flame (1)

Crystal Illumination – Violet Flame by Tania Marie

 

As you know I have taken an indefinite painting hiatus, feeling drawn to focus my creative energy elsewhere, but now and then have accepted some painting commissions if it felt in alignment. This is the first of three commissioned paintings I had promised, which takes me back to my beloved Crystal Illuminations paintings that many of you lovingly embraced. The next two custom pieces will be a continuation of the spiritual animal paintings in the Universal ARKitecture series taking us into the realm of bird symbolism.

This was commissioned as a gift from a dear client to her sister to support her in her life with her personal journey and challenges she has been facing. I was given the opportunity to intuit the crystals for this intent and then channel the energy forth that they reflected in support of this.

What resulted, I instantly fell in love with and while I haven’t painted in a REALLY long time, this piece magickally came together and flowed more quickly than any of these crystal pieces I’ve created.

When I tuned in I had immediately felt Amethyst for the energy to support her sister, but did some research anyway into crystal properties to make sure I wasn’t overlooking anything. I found a couple here and there that supported one thing or another she was looking for, but nothing all-encompassing and truly as intentfully potent as Amethyst in any and all of these regards. So in the end, indeed Amethyst was what spoke loud and clear, without getting into the personal specifics.

Amethyst Properties Include: extremely powerful and protective, high spiritual vibration, enhances serene and higher states of consciousness and meditation, calms and stimulates the mind, improves concentration, emotional centering and contentment within self, brings peace to any challenged experience, uplifts, one of the most spiritual stones, promotes divine love for self and others, selflessness, spiritual wisdom, opens and strengthens intuition and enhances psychic gifts, works with crown chakra, third eye and heart opening, promotes peace and inspiration, represents principles of complete metamorphosis, soothes, relaxes, heals, promotes healthy sleep habits and channeling, good for prosperity, because of its transmutational energies it helps open gateways into intense and transforming spiritual experiences while protecting the wearer from black magic, a protection stone in general, breaks up old emotional thought processes, attracts justice, protects and wards off danger and violent death, increases the activity in the right brain, cuts through illusion, as well as raises thoughts and aspirations to a higher spiritual level. Amethyst brings clarity to the conscious and unconscious mind. Amethyst is well known — as from the ancients — as a sobriety stone and used for millenia to assist in getting rid of addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc, and destructive compulsive behaviors of all kinds. Physically amethyst is said by spiritual healers and mystical lore to heal the withdrawal symptoms of any sort of addiction, help with headaches, insomnia, arthritis, diabetes, pain relief, circulatory system issues, endocrine system problems, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, immune system deficiencies, asthma, phobias, pregnancy and preventing miscarriage, menopause, PMS, and general healing.

When I visited the Gem Faire (by the way this commission had come in the night before I was set to go there), I was open to whatever would come through, but everything led me to Amethyst. I found the two stones that are used in this painting from my good friend who sells crystals. I love his stuff because they are very pure and high vibrational. But I was drawn to two stones, one of which I didn’t know about, and was pleasantly surprised to come to find it was actually an Amethyst as well, but an even higher vibrational one!

So the longer, larger crystal is an Amethyst and the smaller one at top is what’s known as a Vera Cruz Amethyst. I knew instantly I must get both for her, as they would work on different levels of the integrative healing and support, as well as align with current energies and where things are moving more into vibrationally.

Vera Cruz Amethyst  properties include: this is an extremely high vibration stone attuned to the transmutational violet flame. It works with the etheric blueprint and DNA to bring about profound inter-dimensional cellular healing. A stone of spiritual purification, it removes imprints and attachments of all kinds. A protective stone, it facilitates safe out-of-body experiences and spiritual journeying. Instantly takes you into a beta-brainwave state, facilitating meditation, trance and divination skills. A powerful tool for shamanic work at high levels. It activates and cleanses all the chakras, especially the third eye and crown or higher crown chakras. Supports overcoming addictions.

So, so powerful!!!

And immediately what started channeling through for this painting was to create a violet flame, nautilus portal that would access the many layers of the integrative healing and transmutational process, helping to journey to the core and work on all levels physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually when meditated with and gazed upon, or simply having near you.

Violet is a ray of highest healing and purification and symbolic of transmutation to the octave of light. Of course it is also connected with Reiki.

The Nautilus shells to me are of an ancient nature and with its integrated chambers is symbolic of continuous progress, balance, new ideas, visionary discoveries, innovation and inspiration, renewal, eternal continuity, expansion, consistency, evolution, interconnectedness, divine perfection, natural flow, stability and internal harmony within regeneration, abundant creative energy – in general, a symbol of life and “the journey home” to Source within All That Is, through a succession of transcendent spirals. When gazing upon the Nautilus it provides a serene sense of balance and well being.

The spiral itself is a symbol of creation, movement, fluidity, surrender/releasing, holistic growth, and awareness of the one within the context of the whole. It reveals the cyclical nature of life, the consciousness of nature from core center expanding outward, and the relationship between unity and multiplicity. It is the limitless spirals that move both “inward towards the Source of creation and eternally outward with Source’s continual self-creation.” In this way, the spiral reflects the contiguous journey home to who you really are and the journey to be one with Source.

The painting is done on an 8” x 10” canvas and in layers of deep purples to ethereal violet and then I was guided to infuse touches of white, cream and this beautiful golden green to access a high level of healing from the higher heart. There’s a very organic feeling, like birthing from the womb of the sacred feminine, but also like a multi-dimensional vortex of energy.

Crystal Illumination - Violet Flame (2)

Crystal Illumination – Violet Flame by Tania Marie

I took two photos..one of the painting before I placed the crystals on it, so that you can see what is layered underneath the layers and then a photo with the crystals on. There is a lot of energy embedded into the piece with each stroke of paintbrush and each placement of color and lines.

I have titled it simply, “Violet Flame”.

As you can see, depending on lighting, it shifts. It’s so hard to capture paintings in photos. These are the best I could get, but think they came out quite well.

The large crystal is quite heavy, so I put some cardboard reinforcement into the back of the canvas in order to keep the canvas supported. And like always, I was so surprised to see how perfectly the crystals fit into the design, as I don’t place them first and paint around. I just create what wants to channel through from the energy of the crystals, as their reflection and essence, as well as the energies to work with, and then place the crystals on.

So amazing how they flow with the design and it’s the first time I create movement happening with the crystals, as they seem to be flowing with the painting and the Amethyst is anchoring and emerging from below, as the energy transmutates into the essence of the Very Cruz Amethyst at top of the flame.

I so enjoyed creating this piece and it has gotten me all inspired for the next two large paintings that will be channeling through this month. There is a lot of love I put into this, and all of my creations, as I so want to provide a pure essence of powerful support and inspiration to any and all who view this pieces.

A Magickal Little Foursome of Crystal Friends to Partner With


I love crystals and can’t share enough how they have been such supportive friends and tools in my life, especially recently. I feel that the current shifts and energies we are in really are hearing a louder voice from these crystal beings in their wanting to partner with us.

I always love to share about crystals and stones that I find to be impactfully supportive in my life and that I come across/experience so that you can explore their metaphysical properties too and learn about these uniquely amazing beings – perhaps feeling drawn to welcome one in to your own life because it perfectly mirrors your current energies and shifting needs.

I’ve recently had an influx of numerous crystal friends cross my path and so I will be sharing about them over the next weeks so you too can become familiar with them, if you aren’t already. Exciting stuff!

I keep finding myself divinely guided to new crystals and stones in the most synchronously magickal ways. And when I’ve been led to visit the Gem Faire I am also being drawn to only the most time-appropriate crystalline beings that energetically mirror what many collectively are working through currently – not to mention drawing in more recently discovered crystals and stones that are starting to surface.

Today I have four little stone friends that decided they’d like to be introduced first, so of course I’m here to oblige. They are:

  • Quantum Quattro
  • Shattuckite
  • Red Tiger’s Eye
  • Lemon Chrysoprase

I’ve known of Tiger’s Eye, which is a pretty common stone to many people, and even Blue Tiger’s Eye (which was newer to me recently as well), but although had become aware of Red Tiger’s Eye, hadn’t seen them in person and felt their energy.

Similar holds true for Chrysoprase. I’ve seen the more common “green” Chrysoprase in person and have experienced their energy, but hadn’t seen/experienced or even heard of Lemon Chrysoprase.

However, Quantum Quattro and Shattuckite are a whole new crystal playing field to me. 🙂

So, I thought I’d share a bit about these stones’ properties, along with photos of these little ones I picked up recently, which are available. I like to familiarize myself with newer stones and sample them before sharing them in bigger ways and quantities with others.

The four of them seem to be a beautiful balance of energies that work well together – focusing on some of the specific things we could all use more support with: speaking your truth and opening the Throat Chakra, making shifts on the deepest of levels, providing connection with your inner vision and intuitive knowingness, integrating healing physically and emotionally, living from the expansion of your Heart Chakra, grounding into your personal power with energized renewal, creative inspiration, and personal growth enhancement.

Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout! 😉

quantum-quattro2Quantum Quattro:

It is an unusual mineral combination of Shattukite, Chrysocolla, Dioptase, Smokey Quartz, and Malachite in a synergy swirl of mixed colors that is a recent find in Namibia, Africa. It helps to enhance and strengthen the immune system and has the ability to work within the DNA structure on a cellular level to re-polarize and magnetically open to the direct healing light and energy of the Universe. It helps to release negative patterns, supports transformation, accesses higher realms, provides insight, helps with healing of past grief and induced trauma that has been suppressed/locked within the emotional energy field and cells, and when used with peaceful meditation/sincere prayer it aligns all Chakras – both within as well as above and below the body – but is particularly associated with the quantum-quattroThroat and Sacral Chakras. If placed on the Third Eye it will also bring mental clarity in a most nonjudgmental way with personal and spiritual insight in angelic and earthly realms. It is said that if used in conjunction with the sun’s rays from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. it will bring the greatest physical healing and if used from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. it will bring the greatest emotion healing, especially on full, new, and moonless nights. I was able to try this out with the Full Moon on Friday and will say I found much enhanced peace in my experience.

shattuckite2Shattuckite:

As one of the mineral combinations found in the above Quantum Quattro, here is an inside look at Shattuckite on its own and the properties it brings to the Quantum Quattro mix. It supports development of the inner and psychic vision, good for dreamwork, aids meditation, journeying, and deep relaxation, provides feelings of bliss, is a strong psychic communication stone, helps enhance intuition, mediumship, channeling, psychic knowing, and automatic writing – all from a position of absolute truth. It will raise the vibration and communication of your connection with the spirit world to be with guides of the highest vibration and will facilitate a stronger connection with your own personal guides/teachers. In general, it will support alignment with the Divine mind and support communications reflecting the wisdom of Spirit. shattuckiteThere is also the enhancement of healing within relationships that is experienced, as well as brings about accountability and responsibility for past actions. It connects the Throat and Heart Chakra in the form of strengthening your ability to speak with love, truth, and integrity always. This can take time to develop, as hearing the truth challenges, but rest assured that Shattukite is aligning with Spirit for the highest and best good of all concerned in this process. With the vibration drawing forth the energy of your Heart Chakra through your personal expression, it will help you to live your life from the heart, to be true to yourself, and to always speak from that place of authenticity. In this way it is helping you to walk the walk and demonstrate red-tiger-eye2by example, how you are living what you say. The darker indigo Blue Shattuckite stones (like this little one shown) are excellent to use for psychic meditation, as they work strongly within the Third Eye Chakra as well to stimulate your visionary abilities.

Red Tiger’s Eye:

Aids inner and physical strength, as well as promotes greater courage and confidence, revitalizes the Root Chakra, helps to ground your energy and integrate it, as well as provides greater endurance and motivation. Associated with the element of Fire, it is a stimulating stone to help move and enhance energy, helps you to get over lethargy, speeds up slower metabolisms, increases sex drive, and provides protection while increasing inner power and success in your life. red-tiger-eyeTiger’s Eye, in general, helps to bring good luck, mind focus, mental clarity, a way to resolution of challenges experienced, stabilizes and balances mood swings and energies, imbues willpower, sense of purpose, release of tension, fear, and anxiety, while energizing. (this one pictured here has a flash of blue stripe streaking through it at the top too!)

Lemon Chrysoprase: (here has been goldtone wire-wrapped to wear as a pendant)

It is associated with the balancing of Aries and Libra (interesting in relation to our recent Full Moon in Aries/Sun in Libra aspects on Friday) and helps to liberate the Heart Chakra through balance, inspired change with positive results, and increased awareness of new perceptions. Thought to be a powerful stone to bring good fortune and prosperity, as well as business success. It is soothing/calming and can bring happiness by diminishing lemon-chrysoprasenegative thoughts and irritability, and aids positive self growth. This stone also encourages fidelity in business and personal relationships. It enhances perception, encourages feelings of trust and security, instills wisdom, self-confidence, helps to release emotional stress, encourages compassion, loving acceptance, and kindness. It is used in healing and spirituality as a soothing stone for emotional pains, depression, ailments of the heart, and can help mend the body and spirit. Physically, it is good for the liver, detoxification and elimination, aids hormone imbalance, and soothes the digestive system. It is known to help increase fertility and other sexual imbalances as well. This stone can help recall trauma from childhood for release that assists the healing of your inner child.  It helps with loneliness and broken hearts, while also keeping the mind more alert and aiding restful sleep. Placed next to the bed or under pillow it can help with nightmares and getting a good night’s sleep. The white to pale yellow, or lemony green, with sometimes brown veined Lemon Chrysoprase polished stone stimulates creativity and draws out latent artistic and intuitive talents. Lemon Chrysoprase are found primarily in Western Australia and are the most valued of the Chalcedony variety of stones.

all-3-crystalsI’ve been guided to offer the four together in a little self-enhancement and integrative healing Mojo bag.

Three to be held and worked with (don’t they look and feel good together?), carried in pocket or for under your pillow at dream time, added to your sacred altar space…etc. and the third (Lemon Chrysoprase) to be worn in abundant positivity.

If interested in this little foursome, before I put them up in my online Etsy Shop – Crystal Illumination, they are available for $33 plus priority shipping of $5.80. – SORRY THIS SET HAS ALREADY SOLD (it seems the energy they hold is very much aligned with many people right now, so I may have to think about bringing some more forward in offering)

You can message me with your request at tania@taniamarie.com.

And of course they will all be Reiki cleansed, lovingly charged, and personally programmed. I LOVE CRYSTALS! And I LOVE EACH OF YOU!

There are a ton of amazing crystalline beings out there, as unique as you! And as we shift our frequencies we start to attract the mirroring frequencies in all things around us, including the kinds of crystals that now are able to come into our field of experience.

As promised, I am keeping you up-to-date on the latest crystal friends available and today’s new and amazing crystal sharings are a powerful fusion of magic, mysticism, shamanism, Earth and Cosmos – all bundled up in grounded, heart-expanding empowerment.

Seed Crystal Pendulums left – a fav for many! and only 1 crystal pendant left – Diamond-Cut Rainbow Fluorite Sacred Geometry Silver Pendant. Everything is a one-of-a-kind so while more of the same family of crystals can be attained, you simply can’t duplicate the specific quality of what each carries. So once something you like is gone, it’s gone.

Wednesday Cutoff for Orders Before I Fly Off to Bimini


ice andaraThis is just a quick update about my Etsy shop, Crystal Illumination. There are new crystal friends (including new Andaras) in the shop to explore since last I posted about new items. I’m so happy when I see crystals off to their new homes.

If you see one that you feel a sacred contract with, let me know.

I love stewarding crystals and working with crystals to energetically prepare them before they are ready to go to their new keepers. Fostering crystal friends is part of my path that I take very seriously and intuitively choosing certain crystals, whether for myself, for the Crystal Illuminations paintings, or solely to bridge over to their new keepers, is part of lovingly supporting them into energetic activation so they are ready for their bigger service to the collective.

Since I will be away in Bimini hosting the upcoming Summer Solstice Rhythm of Renewal Retreat and will not be online during that week, so I can unplug and focus on the energies, I will not be able to ship out any orders that take place while I am away until I return on Monday, June 24th.

If you see something you’d like before then, all orders need to be in by Wednesday June 12th of this week, otherwise, anything after Wednesday will ship out at the beginning of the week I return, either on Monday, June 24th or Tuesday, June 25th.

The same goes for any of the offerings I have. I will not be able to fulfill any orders until I return, unless in by this Wednesday.

Thank you for your understanding and when I return I will have more new items in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions on anything you see or would like to see, you can email me at tania@taniamarie.com

Upcoming Crystal Illuminations to Feature Crystal Discoveries Reflecting Collective Shifts


moldaviteI remember when I first discovered Moldavite several years ago around 2006, and the amazing impact it had in my life. Finding a stone that was of extraterrestrial origin that integrated high-vibrational Earth consciousness, felt so aligned for me. Not to mention, I was excited about its powerful energy that helps the opening of your Cosmic Heart and supports making major shifts.

You see featured here in this post one of the most amazing and highest guality Moldavite in my collection – a super fine specimen that is out of this world both in energy and rarity. You can see the way that Moldavite goes from a very dark green when just held and not in the light, to a very luminescent and translucent light green when held up to the light. Amazing!

In my post a couple of years ago on Moldavite I spoke about how it “is a definite and powerful Chakra opener and activator, particularly resonating with the Heart, 3rd Eye, and Crown Chakras. Although its energy tends to first move to wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies, it will settle and center in the heart. Moldavite is a great stone to work with on a personal and collective level in your healing work, practices, and meditations. Its transformative qualities, begins a process of energetic resonance throughout one’s entire being, thus raising the vibration. There are many benefits of this stone, and exposure to it, including, activating the dream state when worn while sleeping, helping one to acclimate to the Earth plane environment if feeling not part of this world (especially in the case of Star Children), helps foster a deeper level of compassion and understanding for the human realities of the physical plane, aids in expansion of consciousness and rapid transformation in one’s life – aiding the release of those things that do not serve one’s highest path, visionary experiences, increased clarity, vibrational raising of both yourself and the Earth, energy cleansing, strengthens, aids in self discovery and enlightenment, cosmic and crystal consciousness, expansion, and even contact with interdimensional energies, and the list goes on…”

And as the years roll on, more and more new powerful and magical crystal and stone friend discoveries continue and their discovery is always divinely aligned with personal and collective needs that support the vibrational shifts currently being integrated, and some times coming in ahead of time to start being prepared energetically to be there when others are ready.

For a while I had not been acquiring any new crystals, as I had acquired quite the collection over the years enough to have my own mega-store. Lol! And over time most have found their homes I had helped prepare them for. I take my work as a crystal keeper very seriously and I honor the crystals and stones with utmost respect and love.

More recently I have been being led to channel through more friends, as an increase in conscious awareness and readiness steps up. And this has currently brought me to the creation of Crystal Illuminations, as well as bringing through powerful pieces that are ready for their roles.

Yesterday I was able to take a small break at the Gem Faire here, which is two minutes from my home, conveniently ;), and visited one of my favorite crystal suppliers solely. I have become very attuned, over time, to letting myself be guided only to where the vibrations resonate, especially where crystals are concerned.

Back in the day, when I first was exploring the crystal realm, I remember being overloaded and my energy being pulled every which way and being energetically through the roof because of all the crystal energy around at places like gem shows and crystal stores. It also took me time to learn to differentiate between crystals really “needing” to come home with me and those that were just vibing with me, and of course my own mind was making decisions rather than my heart.

I no longer experience this, as I have learned to become balanced and centered in my energy, finding grounding, and can tune in only to the vibrations of highest resonance that are calling while weeding out the rest through a funneled boundary. I also come equipped with my trusty pendulum and ask the important questions when I am feeling each crystal out energetically.

moldaviteI was so focused in my mission at the faire to bring home the crystals ready for service through me, which made things easy and quick, that I had forgotten the feelings I used to experience. So it was interesting when I started hearing conversations from people feeling pulled all over and talking about how their pocket books were going through the ringer because of it. I also had opportunity to talk with one man who was fascinated with what I was doing and using my pendulum, and our conversation helped him to find what he was there for – he was new to the crystal world, at least in this life go around.

Then two women at the same area that I was at, who do different forms of energy work as their professions, were talking about all of the energy and feeling blown out and needing to ground. They were giving each other clearing with two giant Selenite wands from the man whose crystals we were browsing, running them along both sides of their body up and down.

We engaged briefly in conversation and then the woman asked if I wanted her to clear me of all of the energy and before I said anything, the crystal keeper of the shop, who I believe is also a Reiki Master, said, “Her energy looks clear to me.” But I did welcome her to briefly run the Selenite wands down me, as I had taken notice of these wands before, and what I experienced was a raise in my body temperature like an internal heat thermostat rising rapidly and overheating, which for me translated into a feeling of an increase rather than grounding for me, which was opposite to the effects they were experiencing. 🙂 I think it also had to do with the fact that I had been holding a tray of all of the crystals I intuitively had chosen so far and combined with the Selenite wands, created that effect. I felt immediately back to my regulated balance, which to me spoke to my grounding abilities I’ve learned to center in. But interestingly, just previous to her doing this I had noted a stone that I was super drawn to and once she was done I picked it up, coming to find it was a very grounding and Earthy crystal and so this was perfect synchronicity.

It’s fun to observe the evolution of things over time. Needless to say, I found some amazing new crystals and stones that I’m very excited to be working with and bringing into their glory as Crystal Illuminations. Some of the pieces are well known friends of mine, but many are new and carry energy I believe will resonate immensely with many of you going through current shifts I know you are experiencing. I know I wanted some of all of them myself, but I was very poignant in only taking home what was for the highest good collectively.

Here are the crystal friends I brought home that you can look forward to (which include some new discoveries):

Ocean Jasper, Kambaba Stone, Rainbow Moonstone, Staurolite, Tiffany Stone, Blue Tiger’s Eye, Emerald, Lepidolite, Chiastolite, Amazonite, Charoite, Sunstone, Covellite, Prehnite, Preseli Stone, Natural Blue Topaz, Pyrrhotite, Que Sera, Green Garnet, Stibnite, Merlinite, Green Kyanite, Mystic Merlinite, Golden Healer Lemurian, Shaman Heart Lemurian, and Nuummite!

Wow is all I can say!

And, as mentioned in a previous post, here are others that are also soon to be available, which I had acquired before:

Ancient Wisdom For Natural Balance – Celebrating Mother Earth Today & Always


ammoniteIt is a gift and privilege to be in a human body and anything we can do to integrate our experience in synergy with the natural harmony and rhythms of the Earth is a step toward change and making a difference. Embodying that change from the inside out is the gift we give back to the Earth, and our entire collective family, which includes all of life.

Remember to bring your celebration, honor, and gratitude for Earth into every day of your life.

Wishing you a return to natural harmony today and always.

Pictured here you see one of my Crystal Illuminations painting, “Ancient Wisdom For Natural Balance” created as the essence of Ammonites speaking through as the sages they are, sharing their wisdom so that we may receive their message.

These crystal sages are “living” pieces of healing art that draw from and integrate the Earth and the Ethereal, as channeled through my heart, and continue in the vein of my life’s work focus – to support a return to natural harmony.

Crystal Illuminations are meditational portals that assist you with invoking the key essence of each crystal’s energy into your daily sacred space in order to access new doorways of experience. Each painting is a channeled imprint of the specific crystal’s vibrational resonance, as they come through me in the process of working with them, and are charged with Reiki energy.

When you gaze upon or simply have the painting in your personal space (supporting the flow of Chi), it can assist with energetic activations and help shift the energy in and around you to support desired intentions. Crystal Illuminations are a tool to help draw in a bit of magic as you journey through life.

Someone recently shared about this painting, “It is like you brought the power of the Fibonacci spiral to life.”

This painting holds a very ancient wisdom and energy that can assist an integrative experience of wholeness, healing and empowerment.

Orb energy from Ancient Wisdom For Natural Balance

Ammonite: A fossil remain of ancient creatures that dissipated from the earth millions of years ago, and eons of time have turned them into stone. Since these creatures were once alive, they are linked with the fifth element, Akasha. Fossils represent time, eternity, evolution. In general they are used as protective objects, worn in jewelry to increase your natural defenses. Fossils of all kinds are worn as amulets to increase life span, due to their lineage.

Ammonites were known in the Middle Ages as draconites, due to their spiral appearance they were believed to come from the head of dragons, and were often bound to the left arm for magical projection. In more recent times in Britain they were called snake stones.   In ancient Egypt, this fossil is named for the Egyptian god Ammon, because their shape resembles his ram horns. Ammonite was prized by the ancient Egyptian and Roman societies and likely many other cultures the ammonite was seen as a symbol of almost any deity was connected the curved horns of the ram.

Ammonite is used in finding your way down the spiritual spiral path to the center where the God and Goddess await, as well as used in past-life meditations.

ammoniteIt is told that these ‘stones’ radiate positive Earth energy, and to bring good luck as well as general prosperity.

Ammonite is said to assist with general good health, stamina and high energy. It is told to change negativity into smoothly flowing energy.

It is also said to assist with childbirth, help life the heaviness that is sometimes felt during depression, and general survival instincts. Ammonite helps to release karmic debris and harmful thought patterns.

This fossil also works on stimulating the instincts while providing clarity and enhancing personal power.

Ancient Wisdom For Natural Balance is available and can be purchased here: Crystal Illuminations

chrysocollaIf you didn’t read some of my earlier posts in the last couple of months, with all of the transitions and my always following where I’m guided, I have been led to no longer offer any crystal jewelry. Instead, the evolution of things had me listening to my crystal friends’ messages to begin an exciting new co-creation with them, where-in I help to channel their essence on to canvas and they get to take center stage as healing arts sages in a way that can assist lighting up your life.

Joyful Earth Crystals still remains, as this has been the name channeled for the beautiful crystals that grace their presence in my life for the last 6 years, but it only encompasses crystals that I procure for these new sacred paintings, Crystal Illuminations, as well as occasional crystals that will be available for sale.

The name Joyful Earth Crystals came from my two beloved animal companions Joy and Gaia (Earth Mother Goddess) merging together as the symbolism for supporting the Earth into a return experience of natural harmony, which the crystal beings are here to assist.

I have a new page Crystals for Sale that will feature any individual crystals that are being offered.
