A Little Bit of Magic

Much of the stories about fairies comes from the tellings of the Celts. Fairies are the medieval and post-medieval versions of the old Celtic “spirits of the place”.The Celtics held hills, forests, valleys and rivers as sacred. Even after being conquered by Rome and being converted by Christians, it was the Christians who implemented their stories, intertwined with these same places!

All though these stones have different metaphysical properties, what they all have in common is their spiritual, sacred or other worldly connections. They base their beliefs on the hopes and good intentions, positive dreams, good luck and protection. The power of positive thinking is no magic trick, but it doesn’t hurt to believe in the joys of everyday magic, miracles or the small things we should always be grateful for!

Cleansing & Charging Your Stones

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.
