Why Almanac and Crystals Posts Have Been Late :)

This is my lovely new grandson, young Master Felix Alexander! He is the son of my baby daughter, Alexis (19) and her fiance, Kris.  Whilst it may have been just as well to skip days and not do them at all, I feel obligated to keep blogs going up, on time as best I can.

Truthfully, I can’t blame ALL of the lateness on dear little Felix.  At my age, all the travel, etc. has been a bit strenuous, but not without its rewards, as is evident by the photo 🙂  And, I recently started using Mozilla Firefox which for the last two days would NOT allow me to post on WordPress! Thankfully, it has begun working for me, hence the late blogs 🙂  I’m truly going to have to do better now!

Felix is Alexis’ first and weighed in at 8 lb 10 oz and 20-1/2″ in length.  He’s going to be a rugby star if Nana has anything to say about it!  My Leicester Tigers couldn’t lose with our Felix!  Of course, Felix is allowed to be what he likes and will be reared with the love and support that will allow him to choose his path wisely (we hope!)

Thank you to all who read my blog for understanding why things aren’t posted on time.  I love you bunches and blessed be to all!

It strengthens the workings of insight and the higher consciousness.  It encourages hope and joy, helps clarify problems, has been used as a cure for restlessness, and protection on sea voyages.

Chrysoprase is used to speed the healing of any wound. It should not be placed on the body, but held over the affected area. Carry a Chrysoprase in a pocket to help heal. Also keep a Chrysoprase close to your bed at night to speed healing.

Chrysoprase is used as a shield or protector from negative energy. A small bowl of Chrysoprase kept by the front entrance of the home is a very wise procedure. If used in jewelry, Chrysoprase should only be set in silver and has more power carved in the shape of a heart.

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.
