The Crystal of the Day Sunday 8 December 2013 is Ruby as it corresponds with the Sun.  The ruby is considered to be the most powerful gem in the universe, and is associated with many astral signs. To own a ruby is said to have contentment and peace. Placed under a pillow the ruby may ward off bad dreams. Ruby rings should be worn on the left hand so as to receive the life force and have protection. Given as a gift, the ruby is a symbol of friendship and love. The ruby is also the symbol of vitality and royalty.

The Ruby is filled with love. It also helps sexual love to be more passionate. Persons lacking in self-love should have and mediate on the Ruby. It also gives the courage to be best potential that a person has.

Ruby works with the flow of blood as an aid to circulation. It aids the cleansing and removal of infection or germs in the blood. The Ruby may be worn in jewelry, but never close to the solar plexus, as the Ruby has a disquieting effect upon it. In a ring wear it on your left hand.

The color of rubies varies from vermilion to red. The most desired color is “pigeon’s blood”, which is pure red with a hint of blue. If the color is too pink, the stone is a pink sapphire. The same is true if it is too violet – it is a violet sapphire. The best rubies and star rubies are bright red.

The Crystal of the Day for Monday 18 November 2013

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 17 November 2013

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 Saturday 26 October 2013

The Crystal of the Day for Saturday 26 October 2013 is Zincite. Zincite is a potent stone with powerful metaphysical property that energises your entire system and creates significant and powerful stimulation of all chakras. Its energy is an impressive aid for manifestation but it must be used in small doses. It is also a crystal known to stimulate and enhance your creativity. Zincite has an unusual and very potent energy. As soon as you hold the stone in your hand, most of you will feel its energy and make contact with it very quickly.

This wonderful healing crystal is a impressive stone to use, for those who have been working on their higher chakras. It is especially useful if you have neglected to do much work within the lower chakras. If you have been mainly working with developing your spiritual or psychic gifts, it is easy to ignore the lower chakras.

It is potent for spiritual grounding and it will ground you through the earth chakra very quickly. It will then return up the body and after stimulating the base chakra, sacral chakra and solar plexus chakra… it will move the energy up… through the heart chakra and link to the higher chakras.

Light Green Zincite will energise the third eye chakra and the crown chakra to open you to high frequency energy which it then brings back down to the lower chakras. This process happens quite quickly, in only a few minutes. It is powerful for manifesting your visions from your third eye which is where you form ideals in your imagination. This stone may enhance your creativity through the power of its energy to unlock your imagination. Use these visions that you have conceptualised within your higher chakras by using your imagination.

As they are brought down into the chakras that govern the physical, you may allow yourself to bring them into the reality of your existence. This is where the strong energy of creativity that this stone embodies may aid you. It is not a comfortable stone to use for long and takes a bit of getting used to. This is a powerful experience! If you have found that using Zincite has caused a build-up of anger using Yellow Apatite may help to release it.

Yellow Zincite will gently help to allay the symptoms of women who have difficulty with menopause symptoms, and may help you to adjust to the changes in your life.

If you want to manifest money or other positive effects you want in your life, combine it with either Heliodor or Golden Yellow Labradorite. It is a powerful tool for manifestation and one effective method that is an excellent action to incorporate with this stone, is to use it in combination with the 7 laws of attraction.

Exercise the power of Zincite to manifest those things that you have been imagining. As you use this stone you may unlock your imagination and bring all of the things that you most desire into your life.

Zincite crystals are very small, yet they have a strong energy. Even though they are small, they are still very powerful, and must be used in moderation… to avoid negative symptoms caused by overuse. Sometimes you can get too much of a good thing and in this case it is best to be cautious in your use of it. It is a powerful stone to assist you, if used for small periods of time, on a regular basis and this applies to all colours of this crystal.

The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 10 October 2013

The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 10 October 2013 is Kambaba Jasper. This is a stone that has been around for a long time, however Kambaba jasper is relatively new to the market and little is known about its specific abilities. As with all jaspers it has particular qualities attributed to this variety of gem.

One of the most intensely grounding minerals, it possesses an amazing quality of directing one’s personal energies downward, melding them with Earth energies, then sending that energy back up in an arc. If one consciously allows this process, they may feel an intense ‘pulling’ as their energies are anchored into the planet, followed by a slower surging of the energy’s return. It pulls one inward to the core of the soul where there is hope without all the confusion of everyday existence. When necessary, this process can be repeated with conscious direction, to create a grounding circuit between oneself and the Earth. Such a process may be helpful after especially demanding sessions of spiritual work.

It is told that this jasper will mystically soothe the nerves and your state of mind, and it bring a sense of security well as protection. Jasper is highly-prized for powerful protective energy. Native Americans especially believed that it would protect against unseen dangers in the night. Jasper is said to calm a troubled mind and gives courage, creativity and strength under pressure. It is celebrated as a mood elevator.

“The Earth speaks” is the message of this stone and indeed, use of this mineral may help us to better hear her speak. It is said to be beneficial for plant growth and health. Helps one to connect to the rhythms of the Earth and her energies and assists one to hear the voice of nature. This stone is highly recommend to anyone who is soul-searching and looking for meaning in their live; to any one who is searching for truth; and to anyone who wishes more substance within their life.

Kambaba Jasper calms the emotions whilst providing insight into difficult situations. This gem is often referred to as the “Supreme Nurturer” as it provides support through life’s stressful events and is an excellent stone to wear to help alleviate worry. It is grounding and absorbs negative energy protecting the wearer from psychic attack. Shamans wear Jasper as it is believed that it holds the protection of solar energy and is used during the ritual of journeying. It cleanses the aura and aligns the chakras. It can also be worn to protect from electromagnetic radiation and environmental pollution. It promotes balanced emotions and good health yet it works at a steady pace and worn regularly the benefits this stone provides eventually become permanent. It is excellent for those who have obsessions by helping to bring balance to the emotions whilst also promoting rational thinking. It teaches the wearer to have empathy with the feelings of others. This gem helps an individual to be honest with themselves providing the courage to deal with situations and turn their thoughts in to actions. The energy of this stone works at the base chakra awakening the Kundalini (the spiritual life force at the base of the spine) as it does so it clears and strengthens each chakra in turn. It also works on stimulating creativity whilst encouraging self discipline to complete endeavours or projects which have lost their original excitement.

HEALING: Jasper has the reputation of helping to cleanse the body of toxins. This gem is said to be useful for complaints of the spleen, liver, gallbladder and stomach. It aids the circulation and digestion and detoxifies the blood. It helps in dietary stabilization, assimilation of vitamins and minerals. Some reports are of people needing less vitamins and minerals to stay healthy when they are wearing jasper. Jasper is vital for a person with a busy schedule who is not eating well-balanced meals. It’s also an important gem for anyone on a less than optimal diet, who needs ways to get the most nutrients out of his/her rations.

POSITION: Wear it to help keep a positive outlook. The stones are reported to get more personal and stronger the longer they are worn, thus becoming more attuned.

Physically it has been used in crystal healing for the heart, lungs, circulation, weakness, kidneys, muscle aches and spasms, and psychological disorders.

The Crystal of the Day for Wednesday 11 September 2013 is Chiastolite. Chiastolite is a quite unique deep brown stone with a natural black cross formation in its structure. Ancient people revered the cross within it as a sign from God as the name “chiastolite” derives from the Greek chiastos meaning “cross marked”.

This unusual crystal has long been regarded as a stone that is highly protective. These ancient beliefs have been shown to be true as it is a highly effective psychic protection stone.

This brown stone has a highly protective vibration. In the distant past Chiastolite was used to ward off the evil eye and curses by ancient people. This is a stone of balance and harmony and will counter disagreements between people of differing ideas, and transform their attitudes into one of harmonious agreement.

This is an excellent stone for you to use alongside the higher vibration stones, as it is a powerful stone to aid you to journey to higher spiritual realms and to learn about the contents of the akashic records, while remaining grounded. They aid you to change negative energy into positive, and foster harmony and peace.

It has a strong action to enable you to understand your mortality. It helps you to be aware that you are on a journey that comprises this life and past lives you have experienced – life after life, death and re-birth. It is a comforting stone if you are suffering grave illness and is known to be helpful to ease the dying as they approach the time to return to spirit.

Its energy helps you to be aware that life changes, and that it is necessary for all of us to adapt to the changes that occur. This is a suitable stone to help you as you age, when you may find that you are no longer able to do what you may previously have done. It will help you if you need to adapt to change, and particularly if you experience unexpected severe illness that may challenge your relationship with spirit.
