Healing Powers of Azurite.

The extraordinary healing powers of Azurite.

Azurite is the exquisite blue copper carbonate mineral associated with the Blue ray of influence. The azurite meaning, the crystal’s uses, and healing properties make it the perfect healing crystal for everyone.

The stone of heaven, but also of Earth, azurite is used in crystal healing therapies for the multitude of properties it holds. The azurite meaning can easily be understood if we trace back the wealth of legends surrounding this shimmering blue stone.

The Egyptians revered it, the ancient Chinese named azurite the stone of heaven guided by the belief that it opened celestial gateways while the ancient Roman and Greek civilizations used it for the visionary insights it could bestow.
A stone known worldwide, azurite was used by the Native Americans as well. With this culture, azurite was once more revered for its capacity to bridge the earthly world with that of the spirits and open the channel of communication for spiritual messages.

A highly sought after crystal in the world of gemstones, Azurite is known for its stunning blue color, which evolved over the millennia through reactions between copper, hydrogen, carbonate, and oxygen. Azurite features deep contrasting shades of blue, which comes from its fusion with Malachite, a closely related mineral that contains nearly the same chemistry. In crystal healing, Azurite is a gem when it comes to enhancing creativity and inner wisdom because it cleanses and activates the third eye chakra.

Azurite carries healing properties for the central nervous system as well. The gemstone helps blood circulation, as well as the regeneration of cells. A stone of life and grounding memories, azurite is believed to help with relieving early Alzheimer’s symptoms as well as soothing other neuro-degenerative diseases.

The gemstone is used in detoxification therapies, to support the liver and kidneys, as well as other internal organs vital for this process.

A stone of meditation and connecting the divine with the worldly, azurite is a great choice if we want to connect to our higher selves and let ourselves be guided. Azurite is a stone of serenity. It wipes away all worries and stress and helps the wearer to overcome grief as well as sadness. Fears and phobias are dispelled by azurite.

The crystal opens the window to a deeper understanding of one’s feelings, thoughts, and fears. This way it becomes easier to dispel the negative emotions and feelings caused by past frustrations and fears.

In relation to the third-eye chakra, azurite enhances our intuition. It sparks creativity, new ideas, and dreams. Azurite crystals shimmering in indigo hues are the ideal choice to balance the energies of the third-eye chakra.

Meditation and Kids

When children practice focusing skills, they become aware of what their minds are really up to. Mindfulness practice helps children deal with tough emotions and even improves impulse control. It replaces impulsive reactions with thoughtful responses. Without mindfulness we tend to be reactive, whereas with mindfulness we can respond in a balanced, rational way.

1.  To harness the monkey mind

The nature of the mind, when stressed, is to jump from thought to thought like a monkey. If there is tension, then the mind cannot be calm.

2.  To prepare for the challenges of adolescents.

If you have an adolescent child, you probably would have seen that they have strong emotions and are easily influenced by the society around them.

3.  Healthy emotional development

Is your child experiencing strong emotions such as frustration and fear? It is common through the developmental stages for children to have tantrums and tears. We want them to easily navigate these phases without too much distress

4.  Reaching their full potential

Through meditation, your children can discover that there is so much more potential in their life, that the stresses in their life are petty, short-term problems and that they can be successful beyond their dreams.

5.  Help to De-stress

Meditation gives our children the freedom from negative effects of stress and allows the mind to be fresh and inspired. It gives them an expansive and relaxed way of thinking which can help bring creativity and clarity.

Labradorite – The Stone of Transformation

One of my many favorites is the beautiful  Feldspar mineral called Labradorite.

 Labradorite in a white matrix is often called “Rainbow Moonstone”.

Labradorite – The Stone of Transformation

Labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance.  It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies.  Excellent for strengthening intuition – promoting psychic abilities.  Powerful in revealing the truth behind illusions, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities, and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe.  It stimulates the imagination and calms an overactive mind, developing enthusiasm and new ideas.

Labradorite treats disorders of the eyes and brain, stimulates mental acuity, and relieves anxiety and stress.  It regulates metabolism, balances hormones and relieves menstrual tension.  Labradorite treats colds, gout, and rheumatism, lowers blood pressure, and aids in digestion.

Labradorite Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy

Labradorite radiates a predominant blue crystal energy that stimulates the Throat Chakra, the voice of the body. It is, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release. Darker shades of blue encourage the power of truth, while lighter shades carry the power of flexibility, relaxation, and balance. Labradorite, with its iridescent flashes of color, can be very beneficial in uniting all of the chakras.

Zodiac – Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius
Planet – Uranus

Feng Shui – The Five Power Principles

What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui is a system for arranging your surroundings in harmony and balance with the natural world around you. In Chinese, the words Feng Shui mean “wind and water.” Feng Shui For Real Life is a contemporary, practical approach that allows you to use what you already have and what you want to acquire to bring good things into your life.

In the current economic climate, more people are turning to practical uses of Feng Shui to help them through tough times.

The Five Power Principles of Feng Shui

Power Principle #1 — Chi

Chi is energy. It is the constantly moving and changing life force that we feel around us making us feel either good or bad in a certain location. Chi can
accumulate in the objects around you. In your home or office, the chi will flow in through the door and out through the windows. The goal of Feng Shui improvements (or “cures”) is to keep the chi flowing gently throughout your environment rather than running straight through it. Chi can have a negative effect on your surroundings when it gets stuck or blocked.

Power Principle #2 – The Five Elements

The Five Elements is the collective name used to describe the colors, shapes, and textures around you. The Elements are: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Each Element is distinguished by a characteristic shape, colors, and set of attributes. Feng Shui improvements for homes and offices balance all of these Elements in your interior environment.

Power Principle #3 – The Bagua

The Bagua is the chart used to map the areas of a home or office and determine where to locate the objects and colors that represent the Five Elements. The traditional bagua is an octagon (the word bagua means “8-sided” in Chinese). Modern approaches to Feng Shui use a grid-shaped chart to map nine areas of your life (see Bagua Map):

•Power/Wealth/Abundance
•Fame/Future/Reputation
•Love/Relationships/Marriage
•Creativity/Children/Legacy
•Compassion/Travel/Helpful People
•Self/Career/Work
•Knowledge/Wisdom/Harmony
•Family/Health/Community
•Well-Being/Balance

Power Principle #4 – Yin and Yang

According to the yin-yang theory, everything in the universe consists of two opposing, but interconnected, forces: yin, which is feminine, and yang, which is masculine. Yin qualities are female, soft, passive, nurturing, dark, while the yang qualities are male, hard, active, aggressive, bright. This Power Principle relates to balancing the opposites around you to achieve harmony, like soft and hard, cold and hot, dark and light, floral and geometric, straight and curvy.

Power Principle #5 – Continuity and Connectedness

This principle relates to the belief that the more your interior surroundings feel connected to the natural world outside, the more balanced you’ll feel inside. Because every action has a reaction, we are influenced by everything around us and, in turn, we influence everything. In Feng Shui, we believe “you are what you see.” That is, the colors, shapes, and images you use to decorate your surroundings will influence what you attract into your life.

Amethyst Use and Purposes

Amethyst Uses and Purposes

Amethyst is a wonderful talisman for use in the creative arts, especially in darker shades. It assists endeavors where new, original results need to be created using tools and methods of the past. It is often used as the Artist’s Stone, the Composer’s Stone, the Inventor’s, Poet’s and Painter’s Stones. Keep an Amethyst crystal or cluster in the area to focus and amplify the creative elements of the Universal Life Force.

Called the “All-healer,” Amethyst is one of the most effective crystals for healing people, plants and animals. Natural unpolished Amethysts or geodes are particularly helpful placed where plants will not grow or animals refuse to sit. It also counteracts negative earth energies beneath buildings or anywhere that feels hostile.

Amethyst protects against psychic attack, paranormal harm or ill-wishing, and returns the energy back to the universe after being transformed into positive, loving energy. To increase this power and attract good luck, draw an image of the sun and the crescent moon over an Amethyst in lavender incense smoke.

Referred to as “nature’s tranquilizer,” Amethyst calms and soothes, assisting the transmission of neural signals through the brain. It relieves obsessive compulsive disorder and hyperactivity in children and animals. Place under the pillow or mattress, or rub the center of the forehead counter-clockwise to cure insomnia and stimulate pleasant dreams. It is especially effective for children’s recurring nightmares and fears of the dark, and may help alleviate homesickness.

Amethyst is an excellent stone for diplomats, negotiators and business people. It calms angry temperaments and gives a distinct advantage in situations where debating is required. Wear or hold Amethyst to bring in spiritual insights coupled with intellectual reasoning. As a luck and prosperity crystal, Amethyst is good for reducing the tendency to overspend, gambling addictions or unwise investments.

Amethyst is connected to the Temperance card in the tarot, representing balance. It is a stone dedicated to curbing overindulgence and bad habits, and is an excellent aid to quitting smoking, drinking and drug use, as well as unhealthy physical passion. It also provides the strength needed to obtain freedom from addictive personalities, one’s own or another’s. Placing an Amethyst on the navel is believed to protect a person from intoxication, and in conjunction with other treatments such as counseling, helps cure addictions. A naval piercing makes it possible to always keep an Amethyst in this spot.

Amethyst is the stone of St. Valentine and of faithful lovers because St. Valentine was thought to have worn an Amethyst ring engraved with the image of Cupid. It is also referred to as the “couple’s stone” and gives meaning to relationships that over time, transcends the carnal union and gives way to deeper connection and a more soulful communion. Wear as an engagement or eternity ring for fidelity, or as a locket to call back lost love.
