The Crystal of the Day Sunday 17 November 2013 is Apache Tears. The Legend of the Apache Tear is this: One day a party of Apache Indians were ambushed by an enemy tribe. The Apaches fought bravely but were greatly outnumbered and driven to the top of a high bluff. Their arrows gone and unable to fight and unwilling to be taken captive, they leapt from the cliffs to their death. Their women were understandably grief-stricken and wept over the bodies. Their teardrops froze when they hit the ground to become the lovely stones we know today as Apache Tears. It is said that whomever owns one of these stones will never cry again, for the Apache women shed enough tears already.

Apache Tears are said to especially relieve grief and sadness as well as assisting in giving and accepting forgiveness. They can help release negative emotions, and they also can balance one’s emotional state. They are good luck stones, said to bring good luck to anyone who has one. They are excellent meditation tools, especially for clarifying issues and gaining insight. Apache Tears are a gently grounding stone. In the physical realm, Apache Tears are reputed to alleviate muscle spasms and eliminate toxins from the body.

Apache Tears are a type of black Obsidian, but they have a more friendly vibration than some of the other types of Obsidian. Perhaps it is their strange out-of-shape appearance that makes you comfortable with them.

These are very useful stones for anyone to use, but if you are a healer, or if you are doing any spiritual development work, there are strong advantages to using these stones. Their energy works within the base chakra where it will move excess energy down into the earth chakra for grounding with Mother Gaia.

The energy of the Apache Tears will strengthen the blood and the immune system and they will help the body to assimilate Vitamin C and D. They assist with the reduction of toxins in the body by aiding their removal. They may calm muscle spasms and enhance vitality and strength within the body.

Their energy within the sacral chakra helps to aid the removal of disharmonious energies in relationships.

Within the heart chakra their energy will assist the emotional body to heal… from old issues of an emotional nature. They may bring through joy as they encourage you to feel more positive about life. Because they do absorb so much negativity, they will need to be regularly cleansed using one of the methods for cleansing crystals.

The Crystal of the Day for Friday 27 September 2013 is the Empathic Warrior Crystal. Empathic Warriors are recognised by damage to the crystal’s points and/or sides. These crystals may have at one point had great power, but now are damaged.

Properties Lore: Empathic or Empathic Warrior crystals are some of the strongest crystals as far as energy. They have seen their own battles and come through them alive, bringing energy of strength and empathy for dealing with challenges and injury. These crystals are excellent teachers that true beauty comes from within. As empaths, they energise increased compassion for others. Empathic Warriors are also fabulous crystal healing tools for passing on energy healing without losing one’s sense of self.

The power of an Empathic Warrior cannot be predicted. Often when a power or sense is damaged, another grows to compensate. One can only experiment to determine what power and use an Empathic Warrior may have.

Empathic crystals are considered a good working crystal for use on oneself or for human clients or animals experiencing change, transition, feelings of loss, fear, or grief. They are considered especially useful on those who have been abused at any time. Empathic crystals also help balance yin (female) and yang (male) energies.

Be cautioned in overlooking a “damaged” crystal, rather consider that its power may not be readily visible. If you encounter such a crystal and it seems to be attractive to you, it may be worth your while to explore its abilities. You might be quite surprised and pleased by what you discover..
