Ojai’s Pink Moment

Ojai, California is a vibrant place with so much natural beauty that it gained fame decades ago when the area was photographed to represent Shangri-La in the 1939 movie, The Lost Horizon. Nestled in the Ojai Valley, the town is surrounded by peaks that give off a glow in the evening light known as “the pink moment”.

Since Ojai is lined up with an east-west mountain range, it is one of few towns in the world to have a “Pink Moment“. This magic moment occurs as the sun is setting, when the fading sunlight creates awash of brilliant shades of pink, lavender, peach and purples for several minutes over the Topatopa Bluffs at the east end of the Ojai Valley.  Read more here

Cleansing & Charging Kunzite

~ 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.

Crystal Cleansing: method 1 – 3 and method 5 – 7

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
