Cosmic Meditation

Cosmic cleansing has to do with consciousness and being aware. Without being in tune with these feelings, you cannot accept that we are really apart of the Universal cosmic energies that pulse in and out daily.

Maintaining your calm inner awareness, balance and clarity in the midst of any situation is the cleansing process done here. A gradual shift to a higher level of consciousness… centered in the peace, joy and freedom of your Spirit. Increased insight and clarity… seeing things truly, as they are.

Cleansing & Charging Sugilite

~ 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: Discharge the negative energy from this stone, once a month, among tumbled hematite stones. This stone does not need charging as it is full of energy! My suggestion: use your intuition.

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.
