Stone Medicine: Earth Day

Happy Earth Day Moon Beams!  


I thought it would be fun to share with you some ways  to work with your crystals today and give back to Mother Earth!

The power of crystals lie deep in the heart of Mother Earth. To hold them, to carry them, to use them for healing and the highest good is to honor Gaia. It is sacred work. I believe it also heals our connection with Nature.


Create A Crystal Stonehenge

Go out into nature, and place a circle of stones for the land. These stones should have a special meaning to you and be an offering from the heart. In the center you can leave an offering of food or seeds for the animals, plant a tree or a native plant in the circle, leave an offering of flowers, or a bundle of herbs. Whatever feels fitting to you. Give your thanks to the land you live on and leave this beautiful offering behind. The crystals will be picked up by animals or humans who need them next!

Crystal Gardening

Set up crystals or plant crystals in your garden! You can even place the crystals in one section in your garden - think of it as a playground for the fairies and gnomes! Rose quartz nourishes Roses and flowering plants, bury Green Moss agate or Red jasper into the soil to nourish the roots of the plants, and Clear quartz may speed up growth and harvest time! You can place crystals in your fountains or bird baths to infuse their water with higher vibrations. Your garden will be enchanting!

Infused Water


Speaking of water, put Citrine or Clear quartz in your watering can and let this potent essence nourish your plants! If you want more Yin, or feminine energy infused into your plants, add Ocean Jasper to the mix!

Indoor Flower Grids

Bring the vibrant energy of Mother Earth into your home. Place a bouquet of flowers on your kitchen table, or your hearth - the heart and warmth of your home, wherever that may be in your home. Surround the vase with crystals to invite specific energy into your home. Surrounding my Sunflowers are Citrine and Clear quartz to bring in more energy and positivity. Your flowers may last longer too!

I hope these ideas have helped inspire ways for you to honor Earth today and everyday! There is so much more coming to this space! I can't wait to share it all with you!

Crystal Power and Giveaway Winner

These are a few pictures from my photo shoot with Katelyn a couple weeks back. Oh how I wished we lived closer! I miss her so much! It feels so good to know I have kindred sisters out there even if they live states apart. I'll take our deep texting convos about Charmed episodes any day! I love you Katelyn! I can't wait to show you all the rest of the pictures when they are ready. It was such a magical day romping in nature, finding vines to get tangled into, climbing up steep hillsides in sandals to capture the last rays of the sun. Constantly laughing and giggling like young maidens. Sigh.

In the pictures I am holding my very special Smoky Quartz generator that I got in Sedona.  As much as I love Moonstone, Smoky will always have a special place in my heart. Whenever I hold a Smoky Quartz, I just feel like I return to myself. I remember the deeper, wiser me if that makes sense. Smoky completely shifts my aura. Do any crystals do that for you?

The power of crystals lie deep in the heart of Mother Earth. To hold them, to carry them, to use them for healing and the highest good is to honor Gaia. It is sacred work. I believe it also heals our connection with Nature. The first time I went to Sedona and purchased my first few crystals I had no idea what laid before me. Each crystal I have collected since reminds me of a time elsewhere, either in a past life or different dimension, I am not sure. I just know I always want to feel this connection to the crystal realm. I am honored to share their stories and wisdom with others.

The next Moon cycle, Planting Moon,  is coming up... On the new moon April 18th I will be guiding my first live workshop: Crystal Energy at Unfold Yoga. This is such a dream come true for me. And this is only the beginning! If you are in Southern California, I would love for you to gather with us! Bring your crystals, learn about their energy, and connect to their healing power. You can sign up over here. 


CRYSTAL POWER BLESSINGS,

Because she is so iridescent she balances and protects all the chakras .

Stone Medicine: Sedona Vortex Blessing

Cathedral Rock is one of the largest vortexes in Sedona. I came there with the intention to finding a secluded and safe place to perform the blessing. We hiked up the mountain and found a trail that was actually a dry creek bed. The ochre rocks were formed in such a way that a staircase was created; I couldn't help but think of it as a staircase to heaven.

I felt drawn to a shaded spot overlooking the whole Sedona Valley. You could see Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte, another vortex spot with unbelievable rock towers against the turquoise sky. The view took my breath away. The dry creek bed we were on cut into Cathedral Rock, creating a wind tunnel – the wind was so strong and powerful, I can understand how the rocks were formed as they are. I was afraid all my little stones would be blown away! However during the whole ceremony the wind was so still and gentle, it became a cleansing playful breeze as if giving me a moment of peace, kissing each stone as a sacred blessing.

I laid my blanket down and placed large Sedona stones on each corner to hold it down. I called these my stone keepers, holding the altar in place. I then placed my large Smoky Quartz generator in the center, the center stone, channeling mother earth and father sky. At each corner I placed an item for each element; to the east, signing bells; to the south, sweet grass; to the west, tea; to the north, my feather smudge fan. 

Surrounding the center stone I placed the Tiger’s eyes, Bull’s eye, Hawk’s eye, and quartz points. I finished the altar with placing the other stones around intuitively. I then smudged the entire altar being mindful of the sage embers. I asked Great Spirit to cleanse and bless the stones and the future keepers. I thanked the vortex for its revitalizing energy and to add to this blessing. I went to each corner and called in the elements, Earth, air, Fire and Water. I recited this beautiful invocation from my tarot deck, Medicine Woman:

"Welcome, energies of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.
Let us create a life of beauty, reverence, and wonder.
With each season, let us rejoice.
Through every phase of Sun and Moon,
Let us be in harmony.
In every direction shall we offer our love."

I anointed each stone with oil and chanted Reiki to them and when I was ready, I drew a tarot card asking what message the crystals/stones have for their future stewards. And I poured an offering of the tea for Mother Earth and her inhabitants. The ceremony ended with sweet grass burning and thanking Great Spirit, Cathedral rock and the elements for witnessing this ceremony.

This ceremony was what my spirit needed. I felt so revitalized afterward, and it was an honor to cleanse these crystals and bless them before they are sent out to their future bearers. If you feel called to order this set you can order them here.
