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.

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 Sunday 29 September 2013 is Aegerine. Aegerine is a high energy stone that is often used for energising situations, places, chakras, and more. The beautiful, black blades of Aegirine rise from its host rock like the legendary Sword in the Stone waiting for someone to draw upon its power to make all things right. A Stone of Integrity and Self, Aegerine is a most noble crystal, aligning with one’s truest convictions in life and providing the courage and confidence to follow those convictions. It encourages acceptance of self and others, and to follow the heart.

With its connection to the earth and the natural world, Aegerine activates a strong, protective energy, guarding the aura and physical body, as well as fortifying the Spirit in times of difficulty. It eliminates negative thoughts, energies and attachments, and replaces them with the Light of the positive. It promotes wholeness and healing.

In the psychic-spiritual realm, Aegerine is said to protect against psychic attacks and negative energy.

Emotionally, Aegerine, is used in energy for group issues including healing broken relationships and eliminating group pressure. On a personal level aegerine is used to promote self-acceptance, thus building self-esteem and self-suffiency. This can help reduce or eliminate traits arising from poor attitudes. Aegerine is also said to help you follow your heart and higher self.

Physically, Aegerine is used on crystal healing for the immune system, making it great for general healing and helping the body heal itself.

Aegerine is associated with the heart, root, and solar plexus chakras.

It is an excellent crystal for doctors, nurses or others who are continually exposed to the toxic energies of traditional hospital environments, and shields those in home office and workplace settings when constantly exposed to the electromagnetic fields of computers and electronics. Take Aegirine on journeys of self-discovery, whether spiritual or traveling to new destinations. It is a good talisman for backpackers for protection against negative energies and inhospitable places and people.

Carrying or wearing Aegirine helps force the release of negative attachments that may have taken root in the aura’s protective field weakened by abuse of alcohol or drugs, or by smoking cigarettes (though the effect is more gradual). Working with Aegirine in body layouts or in conjunction with other subtle body healing can, in time, regenerate the damaged auric shield.

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..
