Crystal Stories & Tips, Astrology & More!

We have a lot of new sterling silver pendants and rings in this week.  Here are just a few of the pendants.
The top one is a large rose quartz accompanied by a clear quartz and an amethyst.  the next multi-stone one is Amethyst with Rutilated Quartz, Green Amethyst and a Citrine drop.
The large pink pendant is Rhodochrosite.  Below that is Lepidolite with a garnet cabochon and Scolecite with a Cavansite nugget.  These are all high frequency pendants waiting to help you increase your vibration level.
This story is a combination of stories that we see every day.  A couple came into the shop today so the wife could find the crystals she need to use in her gem gardens.  The husband mentioned that he has severe arthritis in his wrists and his neck.  It has been my experience that Aqua Aura, Aventurine, Chrysocolla and Apatite often work to relieve the pain of Arthritis.
I felt that this man needed some Aqua Aura.  I had him hold a piece.  After about a minute, he remarked that the stone was making the symptoms worse.  I asked him to continue holding it.  He held it for another 2 or 3 minutes and then looked at me wide-eyed and said "the pain is gone!".  He was amazed.  It was the first time he was pain free in years.  The doctors had been pushing him to have surgery and he refused.  He continued to walk around and pick up different pieces of Aqua Aura and Hematite because he had been told that magnets cure arthritis.  So I showed him our copper bracelets with magnets.  He picked one to wear and try out.
Aqua Aura is a quartz crystal that has been fumed with pure gold.  Years ago, and today in some places, doctors used to inject gold into arthritic joints so that they would move easier.
After looking around some more, they came to the counter to pay for their items.  They bought the gems she wanted and the magnetic bracelet....even though it did not help his arthritic pain.  I questioned him about the Aqua Aura.  He said that he wanted to try to magnetic bracelet first and see if it would help.  The magnetic bracelet cost $18 and the piece of Aqua Aura cost $35.  This happens frequently in the shop.  We are very good at knowing which stones will work for various ailments.  And when a person gets relief for something that medical science has not been able to help them with, they often will not buy it if it is over a few dollars in cost.
Well, we don't give up.  We continue to recommend what will work and often people will listen.  But sometimes they don't, despite proof in their own body.
Well, there actually is a big difference.  Crystals can get dirty from the earth or from clearing negative energy.  When you buy a crystal, the first thing you do before you use it is to cleanse it.  Most crystals can be cleansed by washing them in room temperature water with salt, Lavender or Lemon oil.  My favorite way is to put my crystals in a glass bowl of room temperature water with about 8-10 drops of Lavender Oil and leave them overnight.  The next days i rinse them in slightly warm water and dry them with a soft towel.
You can smudge your crystals with White Sage or Palo Santo or any other sacred smudge.  You can use Reiki or any energy healing that allows you to emit Universal light energy from your hands while you hold the crystals.  You may also cleanse your crystals by focusing on them and visualizing them being filled with beautiful white light. 
Another way to cleanse crystals is to place smaller crystals and gemstone jewelry on a large quartz cluster.  If your crystals are cloudy looking and appear to have lost their energy, bury them in the ground for about a month and they will come out clear again.
There are several ways to charge your crystals.  The easiest way is to set them in sunlight for at least an hour.  Be careful with any quartz crystal in sunlight--it can start a fire if it is sitting on anything combustible.  I learned this while watching my favorite silk scarf smolder.
Moonlight is a way to charge your crystals with gentle energy.  I like to leave mine outside under a full moon all night.  But any type of moonlight is nice.
Charging crystals in moving water gets them all eager to go to work.  Put them in a bag with a strap and close it tightly.  Then hold  it in a stream or the ocean.  Hang on tight!
You can also charge your crystals with any type of energy healing such as Reiki.  Hold them while you run energy into them.  And,  visualize them being filled with white light.
Selenite is an all powerful cleanser and charger of crystals.  Just set your crystals on or touching the Selenite and leave them there for several hours.  This works for your jewelry also.
You can charge your crystals by placing them in a thriving garden with lots of new growth.  Dark colored crystals can be charged by burying them in the earth for 24 hours.
Next week, we will talk about programming your crystals.
