Stones that Support My Zodiac Sign

Stones that Support My Zodiac Sign

Did you know that each Zodiac has multiple stones that will support each sign in way or another? The difference between Astrological gemstones and modern birthstones is that Astrological gemstones are based on your Zodiac sign and the energies it receives from the constellations. Modern birthstones are centered on the calendar birth month. It is believed that the power of the Zodiac sign can influence your life’s fortune.

The goal is, by wearing your gemstone (whether via earrings, necklace, ring, or just by sticking it in your bra or pocket) you can strengthen the good energies in your life. Metaphysically speaking, this will have healing characteristics to benefit the mind, body, and soul.

Over all, honoring that the connection you feel to certain stones is strong and powerful and should be listened to!

Purchasing these as a set for someone special for their birthday would be awesome too!

What is My Zodiac Sign?

What is My Zodiac Sign?

According to an internet study, the word "horoscope" and "astrology" are the two most searched topics on the Internet.

There are 12 zodiac signs, and each sign has its own strengths and weaknesses, its own specific traits, desires and attitude towards life and people. It's all calculated based on the location of the sun in the sky on the day you were born. That's why the most commonly known zodiac sign, the one you look up in your horoscope, is called your Sun Sign.

50 Signs of Spiritual Awakening

50 Signs of Spiritual Awakening

Hi! Welcome to my Blog post, 50 Signs of Spiritual Awakenings that you may be experiencing!
A Spiritual Awakening is when someone has become aware and awakened thru a stages of awakening. One of the most important things we can do for ourselves, as apart of a healing process, is to honor the core of who we are... the undeniable, universal being that connects every soul on this planet, our Spirit! As you go thru this Spiritual journey, you'll begin to experience spiritual change in various forms, best known as AWAKENING SYMPTOMS.
A Spiritual Awakening is realizing that WE ARE much more than we have been taught to believe. You are not a human having an a Human experience. You are a Spirit having a Human Experience! Your conscious thoughts move outside of this form and connect to the Universe, the Divine, God, The Creator.
We reincarnate until we realize the full potential of our Spirit through an awakening process. No matter your level of Awareness or Level of Conscious Awareness, you feel the expansion of great eternal progress. It is the epitome of the human experience!
Here are the first 3 main Awakening Symptoms of the Spirit:
1. Shifting of desires to spiritual interests. Almost like a thirst that can't be thwarted, your spirit saturates itself with knowledge Truths of all kinds. Old thought patterns are shed as Enlightening thoughts flood the mind/soul.
2. You find yourself less and less worried about life and what might naturally make you full of fear....you now are less reactive. You might feel light, like a deep relaxing breath has taken a hold of you! Understand, through all of your thirst for knowledge, you've been building a trusting relationship with a Higher Being, your Higher Self. You've undoubtedly built a bridge of trust to that Higher Being, therefore you intuitively understand that life will unfold EXACTLY the way it is meant to be.
3. Concepts of manifesting begin to emerge. Your energy are thoughts IN motion. That's why they are called emotions. They are full of thoughts, whether they are negative or positive!  Coincidences and Synchronicities tell you that you are headed in the right direction!
OTHER SYMPTOMS OF SPIRITUAL AWAKENING:
1. Tendency to allow things to happen instead of forcing them.
2. Living more from Heart Center, feelings of connection to Divine love.
3. 'Showing up' without hesitation and realized that all things are connected.
4. You stop being judgmental toward others. Period.
5. You Stop judging self.
6. You tend to worry less about life, and Live more FREELY in the present .
7. You become more authentically yourself. Your life's experiences are now converging and making sense. You become aware of what you came here to do. You stand up and take action without guilt or fear of intolerance. Be on the look out for new gifts of healing coming your way. You feel stronger, spiritually/physically/psychologically/emotionally.
8. You may find yourself having overwhelming feelings of appreciation.
9. You begin to have a positive and uplifting effect on others.
10. You psychic abilities have increased/intuition. Intuition is an Expression of the Divine Being.
11. You realize that Love is universal and has no limitations or conditions.
12. You look past social status, race ethnicity, age, disability, religion, politics, disorders, backgrounds, etiquettes, or mistakes--YOU WILL see the person as a Divine Being, just like yourself.
13. You tend to let go of the past more and more and live more fully in the present.
14. Easily adapt to situations, people, and places.
15. Rapid manifestation of Intentions and heart's desires.
16. You become less likely to serve Yourself, but you make it a mission to be in the service of others.
17. For the first time in your life, you are craving for life's meaning, purpose, revelations and spiritual connections.
18. Find yourself more and more repelled by negativity in various forms, such as social media, News, Music. Naturally, positive music and social media outlets will resonate with you.
19. You adapt a healthier way of living and change your eating habits to a healthy diet.
Are you having any of these symptoms of spiritual awakening? If so, leave a comment below!
20. The life will be full of deeper meaning and more aware of life's experiences and what they have learned from them, and why.
21. You'll experience activity at the crown of your head. EX: ringing in the ears, feeling off balance, buzzing/vibrations at the top of head, sensations of energy pouring into the crown, hair standing up on the ends, and even goosebumps. Do not be afraid, it simply means that you are opening up to receive Divine energy. This is a symptom, but not a medical diagnosis. Please always consult your physician first.
22. Strong desire of change, to break free from restrictive patterns, toxic people, and negative situations. For example, you may have an urge to have a career change. You may go thru many job choices before the right one is chosen. You are free to become who you truly are. You unclutter yourself from people and things that no longer serve you.
23. You become emotional for no apparent reason. It is better to allow this (then to ask why) because it is the Soul's way of releasing old energy. You may even view this as removing 'Blockages'.
24. You seek solitude and introspection, AKA 'sacred space'. You may withdraw from people and less interested in extroverted activities. Seeking solitude will help you connect on a deeper level to the Universal Truths and help develop your soul's journey.
25. Old relationships are released. Therefore, you may disconnect from people within your current circle.
26. You develop food allergies and food intolerances you never had before. Your body is telling you what you can no longer tolerate and needs to cleanse of toxins.
27. You become more aware of your surroundings, especially to energy. For instance, upon entering a room, you become aware of people's moods. Also, if an argument recently took place, you'll be able to feel it.
28. You'll experience heightened sensitivity, in various forms. (see Highly Sensitive People)
29. You experience vision change in many ways: blurry vision, hazy visions, ability to see things in places that existed a long time ago (but, no longer do)see shimmering objects, auras around people, pets, and plants, colors are more vivid, opaque visions. When you close your eyes, you geometric shapes and brilliant colors.
30. Some may feel inexplicable momentary sensations of heat that can only be defined as power surges. This heat can be rolling currents of energy that seem to be intense. Do not be alarmed as you may be developing as an energy worker, especially if you notice the heat running through your hands.
31. Vibrating at higher frequencies makes the skin look younger!! You are vibrating at higher frequencies than you ever have before. As a result, the cells in your body begin to react and happily rejuvenate, especially since you've accepting to love yourself more!
32. You either enjoy more creativity or become creative yourself. Inspirations of music, drawing, photography, cooking manifest, sometimes rapidly and in 'bursts'.
33. Increase in synchronicities and coincidences. The Awakening process makes you aware of your connectedness as well as making the experiences more meaningful.
34. You'll experience a greater sense of 'Oneness'. From the very fabric of time to the cells of our bodies, we are connected. We apart of everything and everything is apart of us.
35. You rapidly move thru life's lessons; or at least a rapid movement thereof. You have more courage, strength, wisdom, and compassion now as well as a different point of view on life. These tools propel you forward.
36. Your ego will let go of the fear of death or dying. This can be rare, but the soul will see beyond the illusion of our body. We connect to the Divine Infinity because our soul will reincarnate. You may even recall past lives.
37. Expectations of something 'Big' is about to happen. It is inexplicable, but you have a looming expectation of change or feel an energy shift on it's way.
38. You may feel, detect, or become sensitive to invisible energies around you. Personally, I have experienced the presence of people and spirits mainly at night. Unfortunately, it happens more at bed time. So, I have to bless my bed and the surrounding area!
39. Out-of-Body Experiences! This usually occurs unconsciously while you sleep. However, it's easier to tap into the Astral world this way!
40. Stronger connection to the Earth
41. Develop a sensitivity to crowds and loud environments.
42. Power surges, outside of your body! Lightbulbs will flicker, your ipad completely goes out (even though it was fully charged) computer locks up, the t.v. goes haywire. Anything with electromagnets can be affected. Your vibrations are increasing which creates a bizarre friction between the two. I've even set off a fire alarm before!
43. Changes in sleep patterns. You'll wake up after fallen asleep 3 hours before. Often waking up every 3 hours. Rest easy! You are experiencing a transfer of energy.
44. Channeling of messages from Spirt. Contact with divine energy and communicating with spirit guides is truly amazing!
45. Suppressed memories and images of the past now SURFACE. Even though this can be uncomfortable, it can be a vital part of the growth to remove 'blockages'.
46. Increased interest in the Metaphysical, especially anything related to developing the min-body-spirit connection.
47. Increased empathy for others.
48. Zone out for extended periods.
49. Weight changes. Either more of, or loss of.
50. Feeling Energized. Fluctuations of energy, sometimes at an all-time-high.
All of these signs may not apply to you. With that being said, your spiritual awakening is a journey. It happens for you, not to you. It's best to not have fear, but to ask your Guides/the Creator (whatever your practice may be) to help. Recognize and HONOR these signs (for yourself) so you can understand the development of the soul. We are not born with roadmaps; yet it's essential to learn what to look for.

Essentials Crystals/Stones for Empaths, Listed From A-Z

Essentials Crystals/Stones for Empaths, Listed From A-Z

Hello and Welcome to my Blog Post, Essential Stones for Empaths!

This is the perfect reference point to find Healing Stones for Psychic Development, Empaths, Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, HSP's, and Mediumship.

I have been an Empath, for as long as I can remember (and that's a LOOOOOONG time because I'm 40ish)! I am easy to feel other people's emotions, especially if I am in crowds. There are times when I sense/hear other people's thoughts. This also applies to pets. Even locations will reveal their history to me in one way or another. I tend to be an outdoorsy type of person, but that mainly applies to anything in nature. I love the zoo, especially when the animals are happy. I love mountain sides and being among tall trees! I have, for most of my life, been sensitive to spirit as well. I feel spirit and communicate as well. I've never tried to make this happen as it easily comes to me.

This comes with great responsibility, being an Empath. Because we take on so much energy, we become psychic sponges. Eventually, it becomes to much and certain energies can be draining, or even attach, in ways that are not healthy (even if it's just negative energy).

Much like daily care of our physical bodies (brushing teeth, showering, exercise), Empaths need and should protect their own energy/spirit. Empaths may utilize crystals/gemstones to shield themselves from negativity, psychic attacks, energy vampires, grounding, & protection.

These Essential Stones will help you set your intentions, especially if your practice involves manifesting desires of the heart. You need to be able to match your energy to the same vibrations of the universe, who is responding back to you! In addition to, these essential stones/crystals will help clean your aura as well as protect your emotions and strengthen psychic wall.

Empaths or Highly Sensitive People can carry a small bag of crystals, wear them as jewelry, keep them in a room of high traffic (like home or work), and even place them in your car.

Be sure to cleanse your crystals often, suggested on a weekly basis. You can refer back to my Blog Post on How to cleanse your Crystals Properly.

Why You Should Charge Your Stones/Crystals During a Full Moon, plus a bonus chart

Why You Should Charge Your Stones/Crystals During a Full Moon, plus a bonus chart

 

Welcome to my Blog post about Why You Should Charge Your Stones/Crystals During a Full Moon.

PLUS, a bonus chart: Moon Phases & Astronomical Events!

I have been blogging regularly about gemstones and crystals and realized what other readers might not know about Lunar Energy and how to harness the restorative energy of the full moon!

Our crystals receive energy from us AND it's environment on a regular basis. It's because of this ability to receive and release energy, that makes it the most powerful way of recharging and cleaning during a Full Moon. Our Crystals/Gemstones must be cared for just like we care for ourselves, especially if you use your crystals/gemstones on other people and places.

A Full Moon has amazing and rich energy that blankets the Earth, affecting everything in it's path. Collectively, as humans, it affects our heart, emotional desires, our psychic intuition, as well as our physical bodies (for renewal/regeneration). Imagine the potential of power it can have over crystals/gemstones if it can affect us go greatly! Among other methods of cleansing your gemstones/crystals, BY THE LIGHT OF THE FULL MOON-you cannot physically damage them.

Technically, you have 3 days of the lunar cycle to cleanse/recharge them: the day before, the day of, and the day after. Simply,place them outside, just before sunset, in a glass bowl/wood bowl/shell and set them out to bathe in the beauty of the full moon. If it is your practice to set intentions, this would be the perfect time to do so. Typically anywhere from 2 to 5 hours, outside, will be fine. You can leave them outside, overnight. You may also recharge and cleanse your crystals/gemstones in this same fashion. The next morning, bring them in shortly after sunrise, although a little charge from the sun is ok. Some stones, like turquoise and Amythest, can fade over time when left to long exposures of the sun. Be mindful of precipitation when leaving stones outside, especially when combining stones together. You can always leave them indoors, still placed under the moon lights from a window. If you cannot see the moon, no problem, you can still charge them. The energy will be the same, with or without cloud coverage. If your jewelry has gemstones/crystals, you can charge them in the same fashion.

How to Store Your Gemstones/Crystals

How to Store Your Gemstones/Crystals

Welcome to my Blog post on How to store your gemstones and crystals!

If you love your gemstones and crystals as much as I do, then you have found your definitive guide to storing these little babies for longevity!

Let's begin by packaging your gemstones separately.

Most of mine are in small plastic bags, grouped together by their own kind. So, for instance, if I have a bundle of geodes, then they are all collectively packaged together.

Another way of safely storing your earthly treasures, are by using storage bins. These storage bins have their own compartments, removable dividers. Let's say you have ocean shells (come in a variety), you are still able to put your ocean shells in one container, but divide conch shells from Zebra shells, from coral, ETC.

 

You can also group your crystals together by Properties, Worth, Tumbled/Raw, Fragile, and even by Color!

EVEN WHEN my gemstones are not in use, they are still in use!

What I mean by this is, I display a lot of my gemstones, simply because I am proud of them! I have created a sacred space in my work area where I safely display some of the gemstones in Pyrex Glass Bowls. I believe in creating a positive space, so I have a Buddha Statue, A Singing Bowl, candles, incense, Religious statues, Holy Water/oils and Sage surrounding my glass bowls of gemstones. 

I love to share my gemstones with family and friends, so...I also have wooden frames with compartments to that I can proudly display the gemstones/crystals/shells individually. It's especially exciting to share these treasures in this fashion with friends and family when they come over! Not only that, they are able to pick them up and touch them, and then return them exactly where they came from.

If you like to display yours in the Kitchen or Living room, try to keep the space open and NOT cluttered. Consider the vibrations of the room and how you would want it to feel when placing them in a certain room. Light is always a good source of energy, but direct light can make certain stones fade in color (even if it is natural.) A glass bowl displaying your gemstones will definitely draw the eye, offer vibrations easily, and offer a pop of color needed!

Keeping gemstones in your Bedroom is a great idea; especially when placed next to your bedside. Consider a wooden box or a satchel to safely place your gemstones/crystals next to your bedside!

Can I take my Gemstones/Crystals with me and keep them safe?

Yes, absolutely! You would be surprised how many people travel with their gemstones/crystals! I have seen anything from keychains on steering wheels to Sun catchers that hang on the Rearview mirror. Those are a few ways you can safely carry gemstones with you in your car. You can also protect your gemstones by placing them in a small satchel with drawstring. Crystals for 'protection' would might include Turquoise, Snowflake Obsidian, Tourmaline, and Quartz.

Here's the secret to something that a lot of women are doing, but they are not talking about it...A lot of women are carrying crystals and gemstones in their bra. Is it safe? It just depends. Some gemstones are safe when they touch the skin. There is an exception, Stibnite. It is extremely toxic and poisonous. Before taking on this practice, do your research for the desired gemstone. The second part to this is, DON'T FORGET IT'S THERE! You'll need to remove it and clean any body oils that may have incurred. If you do carry stones in this area, I would suggest using a small satchel to avoid any body oils getting directly onto them gemstones/crystals.

If you are going on vacation, it's generally a good practice to pack your gemstones in a satchel or box with compartments, and THEN place this between the clothing (so that they are positioned towards the middle of your luggage). You want to provide soft pressure and stability for your gemstones/crystals. It is NOT A GOOD practice to put them on the outside pocket of your suitcase, direct inside pocket, or at the bottom. You increase your chance of severely damaging these precious stones.

How to Use Your Crystals & What You Need to Know To Get Started

How to Use Your Crystals & What You Need to Know To Get Started

Hello and Welcome to My Blog about how to use your crystals AND what you need to know to get started!

Crystals and gemstones have been used for a thousand years because they are so versatile and beneficial!

It's no accident that you've ended up here, on this blog page, searching for crystal/gemstone information. In one way or another, humans have endured change, began new chapters, or just needed a fresh start. Gemstones and Crystals have been used throughout history for these purposes!

It is not unusual to find yourself drawn to certain types of stones. The soul often seeks out what it needs for the life's journey. So, if you see a certain stone because of it's color, shape, vibrations, or size...GET IT! There have been times when I picked up a stone and felt like I was reunited with an old friend!

Be sure to cleanse your gemstones/crystals, and often! When you first purchase OR receive a stone/crystal, make sure your 'clean' it. This does not mean to do it with soap and water either! You can clean your crystals using sage, Singing Bowls, Light of a full moon, or even Holy Water. Why would you want to clean them? Chances are, whoever has handled the gemstones prior to yourself (and this can go all the way back to the cashier/previous shoppers/original owners) of the stone, ALL CARRY ENERGY. And, whether they mean to or not, simply by touching gemstones/crystals, a transfer of energy and intentions can occur. So, for your best possible outcome (including buying jewelry with gemstones/crystals in it), the best thing to do is to clean it straight away. Also, because we are human experiencing human emotions throughout the week, we are constantly offering different vibrations. So, they energy you had on Sunday may not be the same energy you offered on Saturday. For this reason, if you are using crystals for holistic reasons, it is suggested to clean them on a weekly basis. (note: not all crystals need cleaning, such as Quartz or Selenite).

Make sure you properly store them for safety. There are stones such as Kyanite, Selenite, Tanzanite, Lepidolite and shells that flake off easily in their raw form. Make sure you read my Blogpost, HOW TO STORE YOUR GEMSTONES. There are lots of great ideas on how to travel with your stones to interesting ways to displaying them!

Some gemstones can be poisonous (like Stibnite), so please make sure you do your research when handling the gemstones.
