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.

High Vibrational, Transformational, & Awakening Quartz Crystals – Five New Crystal Friends “Lighting Up” My Life


rainbow-orbs

Crystals have been a prominent part of my life for years and even when I was a little girl (not having been exposed yet to “crystals”) I was always drawn to specific precious gemstones I had seen on others for their energy, as well as constantly collected Mother Earth’s treasures of stones, rocks, and natural crystals I would find in nature. The unique, emanating, hidden and sparkly beauty of the natural gifts of the Earth were tickly pleasures to my heart.

Today, I can happily say that crystals and stones are my dear friends and I know I’m not alone in that affirmation either. 😉

I go through energetic phases of what I’m drawn to that matches my current frequencies and supportive needs. I’ve had periods in my life when crystals were coming at me from all directions and I couldn’t act fast enough to bring them all in to heart and home. And there are the phases of particular crystals, small crystals, very large crystals, and families of particular crystals.

It was hard to quiet their chatter, as I was such a receptacle for receiving their messages. I had times I couldn’t shut out their calling to me. Times I couldn’t differentiate who really needed to come home and who just wanted to come home, as there IS a difference. And of course, as a crystal keeper and bridge worker, there were ones I was merely to foster until their rightful keeper would show up – in which case I would be the channel for their journeys onward.

Luckily, I have learned to make that distinction and to only open my energy fields to who I could best support, alongside their supporting me and others. I also learned when it was time to give heartfelt bittersweet goodbyes to dear friends, thank them, and release them on their way.

To block the energy of a crystal on a mission of service, is just as stifling and sad as doing so to ourselves and each other. I also get sad when certain crystals have sat in waiting and haven’t been utilized and worked with, as they so long to assist and be recognized for the valuable gifts they have to bring into our lives.

Crystals are here as our loving companions – gifts of the Earth infused with the etheric and Cosmos – much as we have animal companions and dear friends and family of flesh and spirit. Everything is alive and emanates an energy frequency we can learn and grow from. Crystals are sages of time, past, present and future, all in the now.

For a long time no new friends were entering my life, as I had reached a state of wholeness energetically with the family that had come to me. So it was interesting to me when suddenly new friends had arrived, of course exactly mirroring of where I was now at, and equally loved how they were crystals I’d not previously known about (and in some cases were crystals I normally wasn’t drawn to). I love how new discoveries are constantly being made and there are so many surprises around each corner.

I had a small surge of new crystal friends come into my life over the last few months, as well as said goodbye to many that had been with me through thick and thin, now ready to assist others on transformational paths. Like the cycles of life, change is always a thing to embrace if you desire greater flow.

While I was away in Reno I had opportunity to visit one of my favorite crystal shops, Stone Age, with my generous coupon they sent me in hand (as I wouldn’t have gone otherwise at this time) for some birthday friend home-comings (my small pre-birthday gifts to myself). I felt that probably one new friend was awaiting me, but instead I was surprised with four and so inexpensively too! Indeed gifts await when we are ready.

Recently, I’ve been united with a family of 20 Andaras, received in love-filled gifts of gratitude. They have been powerfully transformative and I usually sleep with, and take one with me, each night and on certain outings. Where I had mostly been attracted to large crystals, I now discovered my resonation going back to only the ones I could hold and place in my pocket or a crystal pouch to work and meditate with at any given time, utilize in my sessions and classes (as I find holding one helps me to channel more flow and clarity – you’ll often see me lovingly rolling one in my hands during Reiki classes), and place under my pillow to sleep with.

So, I wondered what specific crystal energy would be calling to me on my visit to Nevada, as I never have any specific in mind. I just allow the energy to speak to my heart and soul. Interestingly, the four I was drawn to were all within the Quartz family, very close in size, and mirroring in their icy hue. At the same time, one of the crystals in the collection of friends I had acquired to pass along to others, had declared its wanting to stay with me as well. This made five (my favorite number) all closely resembling each other and all of very high vibrational energy perfect for my current focuses and this year of shifting reflections.

I wanted to share a little about each of their properties, as I find that crystals I am drawn to usually have resonance with others on similar paths and so it’s a way to familiarize with their energy, if you haven’t already, or would like to know more. Three of them are new to me and I didn’t find out about their properties until after I took them home. I only allowed myself to be drawn to whom ever was perfect.

I hope you enjoy some insights into these lovely beings. I have found them to be amazingly powerful and look forward to my continued journey with them.

Ice QuartzIce Quartz – also known as Nirvana Quartz, Lemurian Scalar Quartz, Himalayan Ice Quartz, as well as Growth Interference Quartz (because they do not grow in a normal way):

This is a high-vibrational Quartz crystal from the Himalayas. So interesting that I was drawn to three crystals connected with the Himalayas (since that region and Tibet is my personal sacred journey destination this year)

I love this information from Healing Crystals for You:

Nirvana Quartz is a variety of quartz that was only discovered in 2006 when the Himalayan glaciers began to recede due to global warming.

This type of crystal is also known as ice quartz, as many of the pieces have strange shaped forms and resemble pieces of ice.

They are very high vibration crystals with strong metaphysical properties which help you to move towards that state that is known as enlightenment.

Using them may help your spiritual awakening, as they have a powerful crystal energy that is easily felt within the higher chakras… and in particular at the third eye, crown and soul star chakras… as well as at the heart and thymus chakras, and at the lower chakras, if you choose to use them there.

They have a pleasing vibration… that helps you to make a strong connection with the loving energy of the heart. They are excellent to use in meditation… to aid you to create a deeper spiritual connection… that will move your spiritual growth forward in a profound way.

The word Nirvana comes from the Buddhist religion, and relates to reaching a state where you are able to let go of those things that bind you in the perpetual state of living life after life. It may also relate to the desire to experience a state of bliss, when you have released karmic debts.

It is said at this time you reach a state of enlightenment… and achieve a new level of existence known as Nirvana.

These crystals lay under the glacial ice on the Himalayan mountains in northern India, until the ice melted and they were exposed for the first time in thousands of years.

Most of the Nirvana Quartz that are found in that area of the Himalayan mountains, are either clear, white or pink… but there are some Himalayan Ice Quartz crystals that have tinges of purple or green in the stones.

These crystals are unique in many ways, as they will help you to move to a state where you can more readily stop thinking when you are meditating… allowing you to embrace a state of complete inner silence. At this time you may become conscious of your ability to connect with the flow of the powerful spiritual energy of the Divine mind.

Ice Quartz

Ice Quartz – with rainbow inclusion – reminds me of the Andaras

Nirvana Quartz crystals help you to gain an awareness of your spiritual destiny, and aid you to confirm, trust and accept your soul self. This may help you to distinguish more clearly between reality and imagination… allowing you to discover whether what you experience, feel or believe, is really true… and to recognize if your beliefs are truth or wishful thinking.

It is believed that the appearance of these high crystal energy stones at this time in earths history, is no coincidence. This was part of the Divine plan to aid you to achieve your destiny. These crystals may have come to the attention of spiritual minded people, so that those of you who would like to work with them can discover your future potential… and the reason for your existence on the earth at this time.

These crystals are powerful to use to make contact with spirit… and the best and most powerful way to use Nirvana Quartz is definitely in a crystal meditation. These crystals are powerful to move you quickly and easily into a state of inner silence, perfect for quiet contemplation and connection with the spirit world.

These crystals may help you to make a very strong higher chakra connection. This can allow you to make contact with both the beings associated with the individual crystal that you are using… as well as with other beings in the higher realms. This crystal may be used alone or with other crystals, and either color of these crystals will connect to both the higher chakras, as well as to both the heart and thymus chakra.

It is powerful to use the clear Nirvana Quartz at your third eye chakra or crown chakra, and at the same time place one of the pink crystals at your higher heart chakra… also known as your thymus chakra or at your heart chakra.

This may clear the energy and create a powerful flow between the heart and the soul star chakra. This connection has been described as heart-brain synergy… and may lead to immense spiritual change.

One of the well known results from this is for powerful psychic visions to come through. You may find that your clairvoyant abilities may quickly begin to strengthen, and you may receive visionary messages more clearly.

These feelings of bliss and deep inner peace are a quite common result from using these lovely crystals, and this is clearly why they were named Nirvana Quartz.

This energy can also help you with developing intuition of a deeper and stronger nature…. as it has a quite intense action to bring intuitive messages to your attention. They are excellent stones to aid you with finding your spirit guide… as guides may more easily make themselves known to you… if that is what you want.

An interesting affect that you may find happen, is that after you have used them a few times, you will feel a movement of energy in your brain. When it happened to me, it felt similar to the action of Golden Herderite.. which opens up new channels in the brain. It is like an alertness to what is happening in the world, and it feels like you can perceive more of what is occurring around you.

More than most other stones, it is important that you must ground yourself after meditating with these stones. Often when you are ungrounded you can feel your head spin, but you may not… and can be blissfully unaware that you are not fully present on the earth plane.

Tibetan Quartz

Tibetan Quartz

Tibetan Quartz:

I actually have one other Tibetan Quartz (just a little over 2 1/2 times the size of this one), which is a staple in my daily life. I have found it to assist in channeling clearly and receiving through my third eye. I also often hold this crystal in while teaching Reiki classes.

Tibetan Quartz crystals have been found in Tibet and have been transported “on the back of a Yak in a sack” 😉 to the China border for distribution. They occur as both double terminated and singly terminated crystals in the clear quartz and smokey quartz compositions.

In addition to the qualities of composition, the Tibetan Quartz crystals have been used to promote contact with the ancient cultures of the East, bringing knowledge and information concerning healing and spirituality to the user.

They have also been used to facilitate fasting and abstinence from that which one chooses. In addition, healing and meditation have both been enhanced.

Wearing Tibetan Quartz has induced total centering of the self and has, when accessed, produced an energy conducive to channeling.

The crystal tends to contain and exude the very sacred and powerful “OM” vibration of the Universe, prompting the inventive powers. The body can attune to this resonance and can radiate the energy and verity of the higher-self.

Tibetan Quartz

Kirlian photography has shown that, when cleansed, these crystals emanate the total spectrum of color and can hence be applied to all energy medians for stimulation and cleansing, as well as be used in the healing of all energy centers.

Tibetan Quartz provides protection and purification, and are perfect crystals for cleansing and sanctifying a healing or meditation room. They expand the aura, raising the vibrations such that the physical body can attune to and assimilate the full spectrum of light. Tibetan Quartz stimulates clairaudient abilities when placed over the third eye.

They can be used to stimulate healing of any dis-ease, as its function is to harmonize the higher vibrational energies of the aura, light body or subtle body. It is believed that physical dis-ease is a consequence of disharmony in the energies of the subtle body. Tibetan Quartz can assist when treating dis-ease of the nervous system.

Seer Quartz

Seer Quartz

Seer Quartz:

Susan Sullivan of Howl at the Moon shares:

Seer Stones are Quartz that have been naturally tumbled in rivers. Depending on the area where they are found, they can also be in forms of Quartz like the Amethyst, Citrine, Rose, or Smokey varieties. Most that are found in the U.S. are Clear or the Rose Quartz varieties. These crystals are found in riverbeds, rounded by the water and etched on the outside, and a portion is sliced off to make a window. Seer Stones (Quartz) are created when river-washed crystals have a face cut off and polished so that you can see inside the crystal. The outside of these crystals look as if they have been sand blasted by the river.

Their appearance is a frosty white outside that may seem insignificant to an untrained eye walking a river bed. When they are cut and polished on one end, these faces or “windows” show their clear inside. The most wonderful specimens are coming from Brazil right now. They are found along the Ema River, they have become known as Ema Eggs. These are some of the clearest.

These crystals are good for scrying/gazing. Seer Stones allow access to the knowledge of ancient civilizations. You can also focus on a certain era and area to connect to this knowledge. These crystals allow you to remember what you were given to learn in this lifetime before you came into this body. It can also help you to see your soul’s pathway after “death”.

Being naturally tumbled in rivers seems to add a very earthy, warm energy to these stones. When held, you not only feel a great connection with the earth, they seem to offer a broader connection to the heavens as well. Using them during meditation is very enlightening. They seem to stimulate a remembering of ancient knowledge and remind you that you still have much to learn.

Some interesting history: Historic accounts share that Joseph Smith used Seer Stones for much of the translation of the Book of Mormon. He described it as two stones set in a silver bow and fastened to a breastplate and referred to them as Urim and Thummim. One of his revelations describes the earth as becoming a Urim and Thummim to all those who live upon it when it is sanctified after the last judgment. A white stone will be given to the faithful which will function as a Urim and Thummim to each individual that receives it.

The term Urim and Thummim does not always refer to one specific instrument it seems. Apparently it can be the name given to different objects, but each seem to accomplish the same purpose. The names in Hebrew mean “lights and perfections.” The plural nature of both words had led some Biblical scholars to believe that Urim and Thummim refer to the “process” of divination rather than an object. The use of the word in Mormonism though seems to be singular and indicates a device through which revelation is received.

Melody, in her book “Love is in the Earth,” is of the opinion that when used for gazing, they provide access to sacred text of the ancients. There are references to Seer Stones in the old and new testaments in the Christian bible as well.

Susan Sullivan on Seer Stones: “It would seem to me that the use of stones in this manner has been occurring for a very long time and has been accepted across all spiritual paths. While the messages seem to be interpreted in many ways, there seems to be a common spiritual connection. For myself, I have now learned to listen when the stones speak. There are many times the message makes no sense to me but has been enlightening to the person I pass the stone and message along to.”

Rainbow AnandaliteRainbow Anandalite Quartz from India – New Stone of Transformation and Awakening (Also called Aurora Quartz or Iris Quartz):

Anandalite is a healing stone with a frequency that connects to all of the chakras. It stimulates and activates the entire chakra column, allowing the awakening of the Kundalini energies. Their vibrational frequency helps to activate your “light” body and stimulate your energy fields. It opens the third and crown chakras to help you tune in to your true nature, as well as allows you to feel connected to the group collective consciousness of the Universe. Anandalite energy acts on the heart chakra to produce emotional release that brings about feelings of divine joy and bliss.

Rainbow Anandalite

Rainbow Anandalite – this one looks like a flower and has tiny rainbows all over that are hard to capture in photo

Robert Simmons shares: The stone known as Anandalite is without doubt one of the most amazing and powerful stones to emerge in the past decade. The word Ananda means Divine bliss, and this stone certainly lives up to its name!

Anandalite is a variety of Quartz found in central India. It occurs as clusters of small points arising from grayish chalcedony base. The points vary from carpets of tiny sparkling druzy crystals to clusters of points up to 1/2 inch long. Most of these clusters are white, grayish, or colorless. A small percentage of these, known as Rainbow Anandalite, display iridescent reflections of multiple colors from just under the surfaces of its crystal points. The colors range from green, blue and violet, to yellow, red and orange. They are not the same as the “fracture rainbows” we are used to seeing in Quartz and other crystals. These colors flash in ways similar to those we see in Angel Aura coated crystals, but reliable Indian suppliers have assured us that the colors of Rainbow Anandalite quartz are completely natural.

Rainbow AnandaliteShell Alys Anwyn of Solstice Stones shares: Anandalite is a very special luminescent variety of druzy quartz, displaying beautiful spectral colours across its surfaces.  Its opalescence is suggestive of the rainbow sheens seen on lab-made “Angel Aura” quartz, however in Anandalite, the effect is entirely natural and subtly emanates from deep within the crystal.  This adularescence is caused by light refraction across thin lamellae with trace inclusions of titanium (not rhodium, as previously suggested).  Holding the crystal, one can easily see the magnificent iridescent play of colors under the light. These lovely crystals form as clusters, stalactites, and rosettes in basalt, and are a new find from Maharashtra, India.

Anandalite is a stone of deep peace and spiritual awakening.  It works with and aligns all of the chakras, bringing the body’s subtle energy systems into a balanced and harmonious state.  It lifts heaviness and distress from the aura, clearing energies which manifest in the emotions as depression and anxiety.  Anandalite has a calming and centering effect, and provides a gentle reassurance during times of upheaval.  Warming and firey, Anandalite stimulates artistic expression and dissolves fear blockages that inhibit creative growth.  Past-life memories are awakened, lending awareness to soul-purpose and a greater sense of the Self.  It is felt that Anandalite gently initiates the activation of kundalini energy, illuminating the path of one’s spiritual development.

apophylliteApophyllite: (The crystal that wanted to stay with me)

It’s presence in a room enhances the energies as it is a powerful vibrational transmitter. It enhances clear sight, stimulating intuition. This is a stone of truth, bringing recognition of one’s true self. It reduces stress and releases mental blockages and negative thought patterns. It overcomes anxiety, worries, and fears. Facilitates out-of-body journeys and spiritual vision. Best stone to assist in Reiki healing by taking client into a deeper state of relaxation and receptiveness. Good for respiratory system and asthma attacks. Neutralizes allergies and promotes the regeneration of mucus membranes and the skin. It rejuvenates the eyes.

Love and Light Reiki shares: Apophyllite is in the zeolite family, and is typically either clear or green in color. It is connected with the crown and third eye chakras but it can assist with other chakras too. When placed on the heart chakra for instance, it creates a profound sense of well being. When used in the crown and third eye chakra it helps to open those chakras and bring in a connected state of being.

Apophyllite is an excellent Reiki stone because it takes the client into deeper receptive states and moved the healers ego aside so transmission of energy is pure.

Apophyllite is an attunement stone, it creates a conscious connection between the physical form & spiritual realm. Apophyllite is an excellent meditation tool that will help with perceiving the connection of all things in creation, as well as your role in balancing the earth’s energies.

In meditation with Apophyllite, focus on entering the stone itself. Once you get in the stone, you can travel in all directions of past, present and future lives and knowledge.

Apophyllite has been used in astral travel and assists in providing a clear and definitive connection to the physical body during astral travel. This is one of the stones that allows one to remain fully conscious while astrally traveling and helps one with reading the akashic records, past life experiences and exchanging communication with the spirit realms.

Apophyllite clears ones vision and psychic abilities. It can enhance the clarity of remote viewing and connection with other dimensional beings. Aside from other spiritual beings Apophyllite is an excellent stone for used in a healing
sessions where spiritual understanding is necessary in order to recover from physical imbalance.

Apophyllite is also helpful for those that have seemed to lost their way in the light and need an extra boost to find their ways back. It can assist one with courage and purpose to find their way back.

1’s and 4’s, such as 114 or 144 number sequence meaning – The angels are emphasizing strongly that you watch your thoughts right now. They counsel you to make a wish, as you are in a gateway that will manifest your thoughts right at this moment. 1’s are all about instant manifestation and making sure what you are thinking is only what you desire to manifest. 4’s reassure you that the angels are all around you sharing their love and there to help. When coupled together it is a gift of support towards creating your intents.

It was extremely challenging, and impossible at times, to capture all of what can be seen and found within the inner realms of this crystal. These photos (click on each to enlarge for details) do not do any justice to this both aesthetically and energetically gorgeous being, so I will try to convey as much as possible in words what can be experienced from it.

One of the rainbow inclusions

This rare and powerful Lemurian Seed Crystal Sphere is a little over 5 3/4″ in diameter (nearly 6″) and embodies the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energy in union. It is a Master Activator with gorgeous clarity and rainbows I could only catch a few of on camera. The sphere shape utilizes the complete and whole energy of the crystal.

It is one of the crystals that comes from my own personal collection that is supremely powerful in assisting those on a path of enlightenment. If you are drawn to it, you are ready for some amazing activations, just as I have received and experienced in my time with it. Now and then some of my most cherished powerhouse crystal friends express to me that our time together has come to completion and that they are ready to be of service elsewhere. I honor them on their journey and assist them in finding new keepers when they are ready. In honor of service, when ever a crystal friend is ready to move on, I also respect the prices they share to place them at, which always reflect prices less than cost.I have enjoyed working with this beautiful friend and received much from its support in my life. The impending journeys to the crystals’ new homes are always bittersweet, but I embrace my role as a bridge and lovingly bless them and their new friends for the experiences that await them.

While potent, this crystal also carries such a soothing, graceful and watery energy. It is has beautiful ethereal veils, as well as watery, mirror-like cascades of energy and beautiful clarity. When viewing it you have the sense of two distinct realms and dimensions that are separated but connected by these cascades and veils. There is even a portal doorway at one end of this crystal that enters at the junction of these two realms. Simply amazing!

So many energies and formations can be found inside this crystal, including a rainbow butterfly, perched phoenix, and what appears to be a soaring bird with rainbow wings. Each having their own powerful and transformation symbolism. This crystal is just loaded with spectacular natural beauty – like another world filled with beings within a being.

The soaring bird with rainbow wings, for me, is symbolic of the Goddess Iris, after which I named my beloved snow white parakeet with aqua feathers at her cheeks and under her wings that came into my life while living in Sedona. Right as I was bringing her home, a gorgeous rainbow filled the sky and I knew she had come as a heavenly messenger of love and joy to me. I named her after the Greek Goddess Iris because of this sign received. The Greek goddess Iris, goddess of the rainbow, was a messenger on Mount Olympus that would take messages from the eye of Heaven to Earth by the arc of the rainbow. The word iris also means eye of heaven. It was the name given to the goddess, the flower, and the center of your eye. This means that each of us carries a piece of heaven with us and to me, this crystal carries the same energy and helps us communicate with the other worlds, as well as brings angelic rainbow essence into our lives to help our transitions be joyous. 

I could go on and on about this crystal, but I will let it speak for itself in the photos.

About Lemurian Seed Crystals: Lemurian Seed Crystals are crystals that are reputed to have been seeded by the Lemurians – an advanced and peaceful, ancient civilization based on the consciousness of love and connection – to teach and guide us in this time. Lemurian Seed Crystals have been programmed to hold and transmit messages of unconditional love, conscious connection, and equality, while they assist us in remembering who we really are. They are very supportive, positive, and life affirming, as they enhance and encourage inner development and connectedness. They are also great for dream work and dream interpretation. Lemurian Seed Crystals have a very Yin or feminine energy, and for all their power are more gentle-feeling energetically than Yang/masculine crystals. They are very powerful tools for meditation, healing on all levels, and are excellent for clearing and balancing all chakras. There are vast universes inside each Lemurian Seed Crystal that is home to many beings of light and unique spiritual information and wisdom, as they are connected to inner earth, the earth’s surface, and the stars.

Lemurian Seed Crystals were planted in different areas of Brazil, millions of years ago, for the purpose of guiding a future generation toward healing enlightenment known of in ancient days. During the last days of Lemuria, it was decided to plant, or seed, crystals programmed to transmit a message of oneness. The Lemurian Culture’s center of consciousness was the emotional and spiritual dimensions of existence, unlike our modern world’s mentally based focus. They had a deep connection to the heart, which allowed the expression of unconditional love for the Divine and each other. Lemurian Seed Crystals also help us to maintain our connection with our spiritual source and teach us how to be both individuals and integral parts of the cosmic design. This is mirrored by each seed crystal’s energetic connection to all other seed crystals, while on the individual level, simultaneously doing its own work to pass forth their knowledge and programming for the earth, in preparation for the transitions and shifting changes in consciousness. There comes a responsibility, to honor and work with, when you and your Lemurian choose one another.

Pietersite – Tempest Stone Holding the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven


I had so many people message and ask me about this stone that I thought I would repost it and share it with those that may not have had a chance to see it, and for those who requested wanting the information again.  Many shared feeling so drawn to get one themselves, had one they loved and were thankful for the reminder to reconnect with it, or were simply fascinated and feeling one on its way into their life now that the connection had been made, after my Facebook post on it.

So, I decided to re-share the info on Pietersite, a new favorite of mine. (As many know, I share a deep love for my crystal friends and have a knack for procuring very uniquely potent ones). And how I LOVE this stone and its properties. It is a great stone for supporting major transformation needed now on many levels and has been personally very appropriate in many ways for me currently as well.

The photos throughout this post are of my new friend (crystal skull ring) gifted this Christmas that I was intending to draw in. Here is some very cool info on the stone for those interested, that I have found in my researching. I always like to help people to know our crystal friends in the mineral kingdom, as it is their joy that they are here to co-create and co-support with us. They are examples for us to embrace the joys we are here to experience and share as our innate gifts.

Get ready to really rock-n-roll and shift your reality out of illusion, as this is a powerful stone for mega-empowered transformation, while also possessing gentle calming qualities, simultaneously. For myself, one with high nervous anxiety to the point of kundalini shaking experiences from each major transition and opening embraced, this is a great balancing and unconditionally loving one that mirrors the now with empowered, ascended and integrated energy, that works personally and collectively, simultaneously.

Information I gathered from various sources, which I have found to be very true so far in my experience of the stone:

PIETERSITE (Tempest Stone)- Stone of Change. The Pietersite stones mineral exhibits an energetic quality like the quartz. Pietersite has a connection to the storm element and is thus sometimes called the Tempest Stone and helps one see beyond the immediate to beauty in the All. Pietersite energy feels like a highly charged atmosphere of a thunderstorm that enhances telepathy, activates the mind, imagination, and stimulates psychic vision. It links daily consciousness to the spiritual. Used as a stone of vision, it works well during meditation to access higher levels of awareness, stimulating the third eye and increasing your inherent intuition. It enhances courage, tenacity, and ability to maintain or create what is yours. Spiritually and psychically, pietersite helps in working with angels, experiencing visions, and precognition, relating to feminine or goddess energy, as well as astral and dimensional travel. Emotionally, pietersite helps to relax, and release deep emotions in a calmer way. Physically, pietersite balances body fluids, improves nutrition, helps with gastrointestinal functions, and helps the endocrine glands, as it can be used to stimulate the pituitary gland, balances female hormones, alleviates PMS and menopause symptoms. It helps produce, in the proper quantity, the hormones concerned with growth, sex, metabolism, blood pressure and body temperature. Pietersite is also excellent for improving memory. Physically Pietersite helps to calm and activate the nervous system by strengthening the brain and nerves. It is helpful to lungs, liver, intestines, feet, legs.

Pietersite crystallizes in the form of masses, the structure a result of inclusions in jasper where the inclusions are pseudomorphs after asbestos. The color is blue/black and the mineral exhibits a chatoyant quality. It was discovered by Sid Pieters from Namibia South Africa in 1962 while prospecting on a farm there, and is truly lovely. He came across a rather heavy small stone covered in white limestone. As he could not see what was in the stone, he took it back to his work shop in Windhoek, where he cut it open to discover the beautiful blue and gold coloured patterns of the stone which he later named after himself. He returned to the farm in Namibia where he began mining the stone, but after a short period of time, due to most of the material begin stolen, he abandoned the mine. In the meantime however, he registered the find in the mineral records of Britain, and it was published in 1964 as Pietersite. “Of all the gemstones I have seen worldwide , Pietersite is one of the most beautiful, “says Mr Pieters. Due to these characteristics, Pietersite is one of the foremost stones used in jewelry and ornamental pieces worldwide, and as it is a very hard and tough stone lasts for many years.

This stone has come to represent the movement and chaos that break up those energy patterns which are resistant to change. The energy of Pietersite is very forceful and jolts us into personal change. This stone represents change and indicates a need to make changes in your present life. In a lay-out place this stone on the solar plexus chakra, where the flow of energy leads to assimilation and integration. 

Numerology- Pietersite vibrates to the number 9. Unconditional love and forgiveness… [Astrologically: Sign of Leo]

This mineral can be used to stimulate the pineal gland and to assist one during meditative states to experience visions and per-cognitive thoughts. It aligns the energy centers of the body while providing grounding, not to the Earth, but to the etheric body; this rarity in grounding ability has facilitated travel throughout the spheres of existence, culminating in access to the akashic records or your past lifetimes. It allows you to release your connection made in the past albeit early childhood in this lifetime or other lifetime, allowing you to be fully in the present. Pietersite is a spiritual activation stone, helping one find a new direction to move forward. Pietersite helps to unblock pathways that feel blocked or stagnant by activating the chakra system and allowing light energy into one energy field and body.

Pietersite has been said to hold the “keys to the kingdom of heaven” by linking the spiritual realm with everyday living, dispelling illusion and assisting one in the recognition of the beauty of the soul. It exhibits and energy conducive to the actualization of the loving characteristics of the “brotherhood” of humanity. It brings the potential of the individual to the perfection of the source of all being, stimulating dignified power and loving guidance. It promotes loyalty to the self and to the ultimate experience of life. They gently remind you that you are first a spiritual being experiencing the human condition, not the other way around. As it does this we are able to see the lessons and positive outcome of the struggle and problems we face in our daily lives.

It assists one in remaining open to experience, enabling the effect of an illuminated glory when one proceeds to “walk the stage of life’. It further allows one to see beyond the horizon or mirage, helping to support human courage, tenacity, and dauntless effort to both create and maintain beauty. Supports your willpower, strengthens inner guidance, helps recognize truths.

Pietersite is a good stone to use with other high vibration stones such as moldavite. By using them together one can experience a rapid spiritual transformation and revolutionary spiritual insight. Iolite with Pietersite can help one to develop their third eye and psychic ability. Calcite, Phenacite, Natrolite, and Scolecite can be used in conjunction with Pietersite to further enhance inner journeying.
