A few years ago I went to my first Yoga class and I have to say, I was hooked from the start!
I loved how I felt during the class and the amazing feeling of calmness that I had for days afterwards. It was at that point that I started working with healing stones to help enhance and make a deeper meditative connection to this healing process. (I wont be posting a photo of me doing Yoga here anytime soon as I’m about as graceful as a ostrich in a mud puddle and you’d just laugh yourself off your chair.) 🙂
Once the class was over, I noticed that my stones carried a residual energy of my experiences… it was lovely!! So I decided to being hand crafting a line of jewelry to pass that potential feeling along to you.
Here are a few ideas of gemstones you could wear to help you during your Yoga and meditation practices.
Amethyst: During meditations Amethyst helps to turn thoughts away from the mundane into tranquility and deeper understanding. It is a stone of new ideas.
Quartz Crystal has an enlightening effect on all the Chakras and helps to eliminate negative energy. Often used as a “cleansing” stone to restore positive energy and used in meditations. It raises energy and aids concentration. Some use this stone for divination, building psychic abilities and helping during meditations. It also amplifies any innate psychic or healing powers and is used to increase the power of prayer (especially for healing).
Carnelian: During meditation it can help to remove extraneous thoughts and sharpen your concentration. It calms anger, emotional negativity and replaces it with a love of life. It is a grounding stone that anchors you in the present reality and stabilizes with high energy.
These are just a few ideas and I’ll be posting more as my blog grows larger and larger…
Please note though.. if you are going to wear a stone pendant you should consider using a shorter necklace length so that the stone does not hang down in front of your face during some Yoga poses.
Today I want to sit down and have a little chat about Lemurian Seed Crystals.
A Lemurian Crystal is a type of stone that has quite the history behind it. These types of crystals are said to be “seeded” stones that have been encoded with ancient knowledge and left to be found by future generations (hey, that’s us!)
Legends tell us that this particular type of stone were planted by an ancient civilization called Lemuria in a grid pattern over the surface of our planet. This civilization was similar to what Atlantis brings to mind when we think of how people lived but a bit more peaceful and spiritual.
When Lemuria’s time was coming to an end, the people (or Lemurians) programmed special crystals to teach their messages on healing and one-ness that would be revealed with the energy on Earth was ready to receive them.
When you find one of these stones, it helps you to connect to the energy it contains as well as the associated Grid. It’s quite interesting because I have spoken with some of my past clients who can pick one of these particular crystals out of several and sense the powerful energy it contains.
Lemurian’s have a particular pattern to them that you can often see and feel with your fingertips – they often have strong horizontal banding across the surface that can feel like etching depending on how dense the bands are. You may also have to turn the stone in the light to see these patterns.
So what does the Lemurian have to offer you? If you are a healer, this is a particular stone that can help you to access ancient knowledge to work with this peaceful energy. They are an excellent protection stone as well as a gem that helps to diffuse negative energy and alter it to positive waves.
Each Lemurian is unique on our site and Natural. No saws or polishing machines have ever touched these gems. With that in mind, you will always find that Mother Nature leaves nooks and crannies, marks, inclusions and other discoveries for you to explore.
If one of these calls to you, perhaps you could take a peek at our Lemurian Crystal section of Wicked Stones. In case you are reading this post further down the road and you don’t see the same crystals, fear not! As I’m always adding more crystals to my shop 🙂
I just wanted you all to know that I’m going to be removing the old stale posts from this blog and starting fresh all over again.
Many many years ago I started blogging on Blogger and the blog is still active. You can check out our old blog called PrettyStones by clicking here. Can you believe I started it back in 2004!? Wow.. it’s been a long time for sure!
Anyways..I’d like to keep this new blog filled with fresh posts so I’m going to be removing all the old ramblings here and beginning again. I just felt it was important for my new readers to know that our old info and babblings are still accessible out there somewhere…
