Spring Cleaning

Emerald
Now spring is upon us and we have longer and often brighter days, I began to notice that it was time for my annual spring clean. Yes it was time to get into these difficult to reach corners and open the windows wide and allow the house to breathe.
As I was really getting into my cleaning I found one of my old emeralds which had slipped down the back of a cupboard. Knowing that crystals and stone have a way of disappearing and coming back to their owners when they want to, I held the crystal in my hand so that I could feel its vibrations and connect with it once more. Once I felt connected to the crystal I then soaked it overnight in a bowl of sea salt. Once cleansed I placed the crystal in a prominent place where it could be seen and where it could get some sunlight.
Later, as I sat reading a magazine I found that my attention was drawn to the crystal. I suddenly remembered that an emerald is the birthstone for the month of May. The crystal came back to me at the start of May. I then began to think of the properties of the stone. Emerald is associated with the heart chakra and when used during healing it helps to balance the chakra. Emeralds can help those with memory problems, the stones have a calming effect and indeed the energy in the room was very relaxed and calm. Emeralds also help to detox the liver.
As my mind wandered I began to think of a particular friend who would benefit from a reiki session with crystals and I believe that this friend would also benefit from the use of this particular emerald. Just as I was about to pick up the phone and call her my phone rang, guess who it was? Now I believe that everything happens for a reason. What do you think?

The Weather

It has been a long time since I last sat down to write my blog as I have been busy writing my book  “A Begininers Guide To Crystal Healing” and as I have almost finished it  I now have time to put pen to paper or rather my fingers to the keyboard and begin my New Years resolution which was to post at least monthly on my blog.

Today is a great day for my three dogs Alfie, Bones  (who is really my husbands dog and who is now world famous, check out his blog) and Jessie. The snow has been falling all day long and as I am devoted to my furbabies I wrap up warm and take them on their twice daily walks. The problem is that once off the lead they dont want to come back – they LOVE the snow and when I get to the fields at the back of my home and let them off their leads they simply do not want to come back. So, I am left standing there  trying to attract their attention as they run and roll around in the snow. By the time I get home they are tired out and I am cold and miserable but at the same time pleased that they have had a lovely time.

Due to all of the walking and time out in the cold weather I have began to develop a bit of a sore throat. I have been sending reiki to the throat and to the throat chakra as well as using green calcite to increase my energy and vibrations. This is a great stone to wear, especailly over the throat chakra in the form of a pendant as it helps eliminate any problems with the lungs and thyroid as well as supporting the immune system. You can also carry the stone around in your pocket or as some other form of jewellery.

Well, I am feeling much better now – ready to go out with the  dogs on another walk !!
