The Crystal of the Day for Monday 18 November 2013 is Kundalini Quartz. Kundalini awakening entails the kundalini energy moving up the spine from base to crown and is associated with the idea of ‘enlightenment’. It has been written about in literature for a long time. The process revolves around the concept that you have a kundalini serpent, that is said to reside at the base of your spine and is wrapped three and a half times around the sacrum, until it is roused.

When this serpent rises up and makes its way to the crown, you are said to be enlightened. Be aware that many people have health issues from the awakening of their kundalini, so make sure that you educate yourself well before purposely performing any process to make this happen. Individuals vary, and although kundalini awakening may often happen spontaneously, it may take years of doing certain spiritual practises. Some of these are very special, in-depth practises, and by using specific crystals at the same time, it is possible to aid the process to awaken the kundalini serpent.

If you desire to use crystals to do this, some of the best stones to use are Aurora Quartz or Serpentine Stone. Using these crystals as part of the process is very useful, as they are known to alleviate some of the possible discomfort that it is possible to feel.

Using either Serpentine Stone or Aurora Quartz allows you to clear the chakras as the movement occurs. If you feel you want to participate in these practises please ensure that you take advice from extremely knowledgeable experts, as some people have been known to have bad side effects from doing this.

The Crystal of the Day Sunday 10 November 2013

The Crystal of the Day Sunday 10 November 2013 is Orange River Crystals. In Africa the areas where Orange River crystals are mined are remote and barren. Like the river name, most of the crystals have a beautiful orange glow to them. A vast array of formations have been found along this river such as elestials, Genrators, Transmitters, Cathedrals, Star Gazers with a variety of inclusions including Hematite. These crystals are from one of the most inhospitable areas on the planet, yet something of such beauty can be found there. Most of these crystals have phantoms within them, recording lessons of the past, so that progress can be made. They have a rich history and can instill many life lessons. They are amazing teachers if you take the time to listen to their stories.

Most Orange River Quartz has some level of Red Phantom inclusions and Red-phantom quartz crystals are rare. The red phantom is used to stimulate the first three chakras, to combine the energies in order to produce highly recognisable vitality directed toward creativity, intellectual advancement, and intuitive endeavours.

In addition, the red phantom exhibits qualities similar to dioptase; it provides for stimulation of the intelligence of the cellular structure of the body such that the cells may recognise the reason for malfunction, in conditions of disease; it further provides the vitality and creativity for the correction of the malfunction.

Hematite forms a reflective shield around the wearer, letting negativity bounce off and return to the sender. Wearers should remember however, that their own negativity will be reflected to them if they are its source. It is therefore a “lesson stone”, teaching the aware to release and ground their negativity. It is also said to aid in Mental attunement, memory enhancement and in disorders of the blood. Hematite symbolises balance. It is used to ground, stabilise, and focus attention on the physical plane. It is popular among many pagans for its ability to absorb negative energy. Hematite can absorb both positive and negative energy, though it is most often used to absorb negative energy. It is a very easy stone to clear and cleanse, and thus can be used multiple times in the absorption of energy. Hematite has connections to both Fire and Earth.
