The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 17 October 2013 is Larimar. Larimar is one of the cardinal Water element stones, yet is born of Fire in its volcanic origins. One of the few crystals to balance the polarities of these energies, Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies. It is powerful in meditation and in connecting to the Divine Feminine, and is particularly helpful in releasing emotional bonds, patterns or principles that no longer serve the highest good. A stone of clear communication, it provides the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart.

A rare blue variety of Pectolite, Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass and forms in cavities within basaltic lava. The copper substitution in Pectolite instead of calcium produces beautiful translucent shades of soft blues, white and turquoise marked with streaks and patterns of white, and may contain red or brown areas of oxidation or Hematite inclusions. The more intense the blue and contrast within the stone, the rarer and higher its value. Note: blue is photosensitive and may fade over time if exposed to too much light or heat.

Larimar is also known as the Dolphin Stone, Blue Pectolite, Atlantis Stone, and Stefilia’s Stone. Originally discovered in 1916, it was named by the Dominican who re-discovered it in 1974, taking the first letters of his daughter’s name, Larissa, and the Spanish word for the sea, mar, to create Larimar.

Use Larimar to overcome fear of doctors, hospitals, injections or surgery. It promotes clear and confident communication with health personnel.

Larimar is a wonderful stone for mothers, during and after pregnancy. It helps in alleviating post-partum depression, and relaxes the stress associated with new parenthood.

As a soothing Water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides excessive passion into peace. It may be used to diminish the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, and when one’s kundalini energies have become uncomfortably active.

As a crystal of the Throat Chakra, using Larimar in a pendant or laying-on-of-stones treatment will unleash the voice of one’s deepest wisdom. Singers may also find Larimar a wonderful talisman for enhancing and protecting the voice.

Larimar is an excellent stone for finding a soulmate. It facilitates the healing of unresolved issues or fears, trauma to the heart, or past-life relationships.

Larimar is particularly helpful for cartilage and throat conditions, and dissolves blockages of the head, neck and chest. It may also be laid on constricted joints or arteries.

As a reflexology tool, Larimar opens the acupressure/acupuncture meridians at the feet allowing for the recognition of which painful spots lead to which areas of the body in order to remove and clear the disease.

Larimar is used to enhance alternative treatments, particularly those involving heat, light, and water. It is an antidote to emotional extremes and helps ameliorate bipolar disorders.

Larimar relieves high blood pressure and stress-related illnesses, and may alleviate excessive Fire element energy such as infection, fever and inflammation. It may also be used to treat skin disorders aggravated by stress, such as hives, rashes, eczema and psoriasis.

Larimar is a stone of tremendous benefit to the Throat Chakra, opening the way for clear communication and the ability to speak openly from the heart.

The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release.

The Crystal of the Day for Saturday 5 October 2013

The Crystal of the Day for Saturday 5 October 2013 is Enhydro (Enhydrite) Crystal. During the growth phases of a crystal over thousands/millions of years, fluid may become trapped inside the crystal – creating a fluid bubble. These crystals are often referred to as enhydros.

The fluid bubble is made up of the fluid that surrounded the crystal at the time it became trapped, thus if could me a mineralise fluid/water, oil, salty water etc. There is a certain purity to an enhydro crystal, thus as you most probably have guessed crystals containing fluids are ideal healing tools for cleansing the energetic bodies (especially the emotional body), as well as detoxing the physical body.

The water element relates to emotions & feelings, thus enhydro’s cleanse and purify our thoughts and emotions, allowing one to speak with truth, wisdom and integrity.

Enhydro’s assist in expression/communication of feelings/emotions from a heart level, opening us up to deep levels of Being and receiving Divine Love.

The water element also assists in heightening our feeling/intuitive state of being, thus these crystals assist us in healing, counselling, crystal healing, medical intuitive and all psychic endeavours.

Enhydro’s are beautiful crystals to support a Crystal Light Healing, or maybe place an enhydro under your pillow or on your beside table during your sleep.. to wash away and transform the energy of day.

There is knowledge that you cannot acquire without loss. If you pierce the Enhydro quartz to get the liquid, you destroy the crystal’s uniqueness and power. Trying to get the ancient liquids and their knowledge and power destroys their crystal and mixes them with the mundane.

Dig too deeply into the secrets and hidden places of others and you risk damaging yourself, others, and your relationships.

Enhydro are mediation stones of acceptance and unquestioned love. They relieve doubt, restore faith, provide self-confidence and bring peace and loving acceptance to relationships plagued by doubt, distrust, and worry.

The Crystal of the Day for Friday 20 September 2013

The Crystal of the Day for Friday 20 September 2013 is the Barnacle Crystal, as it corresponds with today’s Planet, Venus. Barnacle crystals are recognised as crystals covered or partially covered with smaller crystals. A Barnacle Quartz crystal is described as “The random outside attachment of several to many smaller crystals to the host.” That is, barnacles are smaller crystals covering some part of a larger one. These are also called Fairy Dust crystals.The larger crystal is the “old soul” and contains the wisdom and trust which attracts the smaller crystals.

When you are trying to separate your own spirit from its relationship with others, and get in touch with your real spirit, use a Barnacle to aid in your efforts of self-knowledge and usefulness.

When you use the crystal, think of the barnacles on it as the things and relationships you have added to your life. Note they are not the main crystal, just as you are not the things you have added to your life.

Keep a Barnacle Crystal near to you. Let it constantly remind you keep a perspective on your relationships. It will help you learn to see yourself separately from your things and relationships.

A Barnacle is a good crystal to use in the beginning of a meditation session. It will help you find yourself – the first step in finding your future.

This crystal can be used in meditation to provide insights to family and/or community problems. The barnacle crystal is also excellent for those employed by service organisations [e.g., teachers, etc.]; the energy helps to stimulate a group cohesiveness and a willingness to work together. The crystal is a wonderful companion when one is experiencing the loss of a loved one. It can also be used to increase both physical and intellectual fertility.
