Crystals and Plants

Crystals and plants I have always been drawn to both crystals and plants. From a young age, I loved collecting shells and shiny stones from the beach and one of favourite places to be was in my dadโ€™s huge greenhouse; I vividly remember the thrill of seeing tiny seeds sprout from the soil we had carefully sieved ready for sowing. It seems only natural to me now that both my passions go hand in hand. I have a collection of over one hundred plants, and probably as many crystals now too. I have always placed crystals around my plants or inside my plant pots, it just felt intuitively right, and of course it looked good too. I place them around the base of the plant, and sometimes I bury a crystal beside the plants roots (I do this mainly with young plants to boost their growth). I used to do this mostly because it looked nice, but then I found that the plants that had crystals close to them and especially those with crystals inside their pots grew bigger and healthier than those without crystals! When I researched it a bit more, I wasnโ€™t surprised to find that crystals actually do boost plants growth! Crystals vibrate at particular frequencies and just as we can utilise these frequencies in crystal healing for ourselves, we can also use the energy of crystals to nurture our plants. Every crystal vibrates differently, some have low vibrational energy, some have high, some are grounding, and some are stimulating. If we direct these properties into our plants, we can encourage them to flourish. As well as placing crystals beside your plants, you can carry crystals with you while you tend to your plants or you can place them in your watering can for around an hour or two before you water your plants (always ensure the crystal you are using is compatible with water, some crystals should never be placed in water as it cause them to oxidise or erode). For all methods, donโ€™t forget to program your crystal first! You can use many different crystals to nourish and support your plants; tourmaline acts as a natural insecticide, and if your plants are ailing, this is a great crystal to bring it back to health and encourage healthy growth. Green calcite is a very soothing stone, it is said to be excellent for stressed plants. My top 5 crystals for boosting my plants are moss agate, moonstone, green aventurine, tigers eye, and malachite. Moss agate - known as the gardeners stone, this crystal is said to have magical effects on agriculture! Its low vibration balances and stabilizes plants. This is a good one to place inside all your plant pots or even have buried near plants roots. Moonstone - connects to the energies of the moon which are associated with fertility and the cycles of life. It is a very restorative crystal. Place near your plants or with new seedlings to encourage growth. Green aventurine - carries a strong connection to Earth. It can help us tune out and connect to nature, it is a great stone to carry while you are tending to your plants. Tigers eye - a grounding, earthing stone, associated with strength and known for its healing qualities. Place with your plants to channel this energy into healing ailing plants. Malachite - known as the stone of transformation, this crystal is perfect for energizing your plants and encouraging growth. If you have fruiting plants (such as tomatoes, courgette or strawberries etc), using crystals to boost them is considered especially beneficial for health as it is super nourishing to eat crystal enhanced home grown fruit and veg. Obsidian and onyx are particularly recommended; stick them into the soil for maximum benefit. Even if you donโ€™t have a garden, you can try this for herbs too. All you need is a windowsill to grow a few pots of fresh herbs, maybe parsley, rosemary and coriander or whatever your favourite herbs are. Plant them up and add some crystals to their pots to enhance their growth. Then add them to your favourite dishes a wonderful health boost. Using crystals to boost your plants is a wonderful way to attract abundance into your life. There are many plants that considered โ€˜luckyโ€™ and said to bring prosperity to your home. My two favourite spiritual plants are Money Plants (also known as Jade Plant, Lucky Plant or Money Tree) and Lucky Bamboo. Boosting these plants with โ€˜luckyโ€™ crystals can effectively double the boost of abundance. Money plants are considered to bring good fortune to their owner. As a money tree grows, the abundance of leaves is said to reflect the owners growing good fortune. It is said to be especially lucky to place a money tree by your front door. There is a saying "Jade by the door, poor no more". Try placing a money plant with a citrine crystal in its pot by your main entrance for a double boost of abundance; citrine is known for its powers to attract wealth, prosperity and success. It is also a good crystal for cleansing and energising plants...... continue reading hereย http://greenlotusden.com/plants/crystals-and-plants/ย

๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿš๐ŸŒพ HOW TO USE SAGE FOR SMUDGING ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’ญ

๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿš๐ŸŒพ HOW TO USE SAGE FOR SMUDGING ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’ญ

๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿš๐ŸŒพ HOW TO SMUDGE ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’ญThe use of dried white sage and burning herbs is a 2,000 year old Indigenous American practice.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸผSmudging your sacred space, your home or office, or even your body with sage is like taking an energetic shower, or doing a deep metaphysical cleansing. ๐Ÿ’จThe smoke from dried sage actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing our stress response.
๐ŸŒฟWhen should I smudge?
โ€ขWhen you move into a new living space
โ€ขWhen you begin a new job or start your own business
โ€ขBefore / after a guest enters your home
โ€ขBefore / after a yoga or healing session
โ€ขBefore meditation
โ€ขAfter an argument or any illness
โ€ขUpon returning home from crowded situations
๐Ÿ’จHow do a smudge & cleanse my space / myself?
Place your sage or cedar into your lovely Abolone Shell (a traditional vessel used by Indigenous American people that represents the element of water), light the bundle by holding a flame to it until it begins to smoke. If a true flame appears, shake the bundle gently or blow until it is just embers and smoke. You may need to re-light the bundle a few times during the ritual process. With the loose Sweetgrass, use your charcoal burning disk (or part of it) inside your shell to set it alight.
Once you have a nice smoke going, use your wafting feather to direct the smoke over your body from your feet up to your head, then back down again. As you do this, visualize the smoke taking away with it any negative energy from your life.
๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŽ‹You may even like to say words out loud such as; "Air, fire, water, earth. Cleanse, dismiss, dispel." Or โ€œI dispel all negativity from my being / my space and replace only with positive thingsโ€ (or whatever resonates with you!)
๐Ÿ™๐ŸผOnce you have smudged your body, begin to move through your space. Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into shadow spaces. To maintain the atmosphere of ritual, keep repeating your words in your mind as you diffuse the smoke.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸผOnce the space is cleared, allow the sage or cedar bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your shell. ๐ŸšYou can even bury the remaining smudge in your garden to really feel the completeness of the cleansing ritual. Once buried, the smudging has done its work in completing the cycle. Ideally, you should try to use a new smudge for each cleansing.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ’จ๐ŸŽ‹๐Ÿ’ญ๐ŸŒฌ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿš๐Ÿš

Weekly Blog ~ Coping with Grief & Loss

Firstly, thank you so much everyone for sending in your topics for us to address in our Weekly Blogs ... as you may know the first topic we are going to look at is coping with grief. Grief can be such a consuming feeling and we get so many requests for crystals to help with this we thought we would try and tackle this one as soon as possible.

Grief can take so many different forms but usually it is seen as intense sorrow, especially caused by the loss of someone we really care for. Sometimes the pain we experience is so strong we can often feel like it will never stop and we can see no way to end the hurt. Everyone has different ways to cope with grief and there is no right or wrong way ...but there are things we can do to help ourselves and we can promise you that that pain will ease and happiness will start to come back into your life, even if that feels unbelievable right now... we donโ€™t have a choice in the matter, our angels will make sure of it xxx

Crystals are an amazing source of hope and strength for anyone coping with grief; and here are a few of our favourite recommendations;

  • Rhodonite ย Rhodonite holds within it the power to heal a broken heart. It stabilises and starts to turn around your feelings to a lighter much more relaxed state. Rhodonite is a slow burning crystal, it works over time so we suggest keeping this crystal close all the time โ€“ bracelets are perfect as they stay with you all the time, especially on your left wrist. When you go to bed at night pop your bracelet under your pillow to keep the repairing energies flowing all the time.ย 
  • Aquamarine ย When you hear the name of this crystal you immediately think of the sea and its calming and soothing energies ... hold this crystal close, close your eyes and imagine you are sat on a beach with your toes being splashed by the gentle tide coming in and out. Whilst you sit there let the sea wash away the pain and sorrow, let it go with the tide as it goes out and let the power of the sea refresh you and give you strength. The sea holds such power, the power to regenerate and reinvigorate โ€“ this crystal holds that power especially for you.
  • Rainbow Moonstone ย Such a healer of trauma ~ and similarly to the seaโ€™s power found in Aquamarine, Rainbow Moonstone is another source of great strength and stability through a time that feels so uncertain and unknown. If we look at the world and nature we see that the sea is ultimately pulled and controlled by the Moon and together these make a force to be reckoned with; the sea (aquamarine) will ground you and the moon (moonstone) will lift you up ... with the added bright light and colour of a rainbow shining joy back into your life once again.
  • Chrysoprase ย This lovely green crystal is the bringer of hope. It shows light at the end of the tunnel and gives a sense of hope during times when it feels like there is no hope at all and is incredibly soothing and healing. We stock Chrysoprase as a pendant so that it can be kept close by the chest and heart all the time.
  • Rose Quartz ย The thing we need the most, the thing we feel we have had taken away so suddenly ... Love. Rose Quartz is the crystal of love, love for yourself and love for others, a loving hug from the universe and there by your side supporting you along this difficult journey.
  • Amethystย ย Amethyst is amazing with its calming energy at helping to heal personal losses and grief, slowly carrying youย through the toughest of times. Amethyst has a gentle sedative energy that promotes aย sense of peace, happiness, and contentment. It also is said toย stabilise emotions.
  • Angeliteย ย This beautiful pale blue crystal helps open up communication channels between you and your angels andย assists you inย receiving messages of love and comfort from yourย loved ones who are no longer here with you, and to bring through their energy to aid emotional healing.

As well as wearing these crystals at all times and keeping them close by whilst you sleep, another great way to allow them to heal you is to sit in a meditative position (on the floor with legs crossed) and let your hands relax together in your lap forming a cup to hold our chosen crystal. Sit still, let every muscle in your body relax completely and picture the crystal surrounded by light and love and state out loud or in your mind, your intention for that crystal. Your intention might be to help you cope with the pain, to ease the pain, to give you strength to get through difficult situations... or whatever it is you want that crystal to do for you. Then just relax with intent and let the crystalโ€™s energies start to work their magic ... you need to do this for approximately 20-30 minutes. Repeat this exercise as often as you need. (just make sure you cleanse and recharge your crystal before every use)

I hope that has helped a little bit ... lots more to come so stay tuned. You may also like to have a look at our collection for Angel Comfort, Grief & Loss, in this collection we have included a lovely angel candle to light for your lost loved one, an angel wing hanging ornament and a white feather as a reminder that your angels are never too far away. There is also the option of adding some Neal's Yard Calming Essential oil - a real comfort to smell in times of heightened anxiety or worry xxxย 

With love, hope, strength and a huge warm hug to all of you who are experiencing any form of grief, from Crystal Harmony xxxxxx

*** New Weekly Blog ***

Hi to all of our lovely Crystal Harmony friends ย ... we are so excited to launch our new weekly Blog with you all! ... BUT we need your help first! ...

Within the blog we are going to select a topic from the list of issues/problems/difficulties that you, our customers are facing in life and we will address these topics day by day, offering practical help and tips and also carefully recommending exactly which crystals to use and how to use them to get the best results.

We are so keen to help everyone as much as we can and we have such a wide range of customers asking us so many different questions we wanted everyone to potentially benefit from our advice and guidance - and what better way to do this we thought, that to start to Blog about it ... for you all to read and enjoy.

We want to start by asking you to send us a message or comment on the Facebook post with any issues you are facing and that you would like our help with ... just to give you an example, over the last week alone we have been asked about help with Depression, how to calm hyperactive children, how to stick to a diet, how to not let other peoples negativity affect you, how to get a house ready to market, etc etc ... the list is endless, and we have so much to share, we can't wait to get started.

No request is to weird or wacky ... no such thing in our opinion and we will keep our blog responses completely anonymous :-)

But that is not all ... we want to go one step further ... we will then offer one person each week the option to try our suggested crystals, completely free of charge, and to let us know how they got on so that we can share those experiences with everyone - the crystals will be yours to keep at no cost - the only thing we ask in return is that you send us an email or message ... or even a good old letter in the post... sharing your feedback for us to then share withย our other Blog readersย (no names mentioned ... just experiences)

We are in no doubt that these little balls of pure energy work but we want to start shouting about their powers and talking about some real life experiences, where crystals really do make a difference... (and because we love hearing your success stories too!!)

So ... send us your topics that you would like us to address and we will get started!! We simply cannot wait!!! ... don't worry we will share all of our blogs on Facebook to make sure you don't miss them.

Yours, forever in adoration of our wonderful customers, Crystal Harmony xxxx
