Libra and the Zodiac – September 23 to October 22.

Today begins the Libra season! Let’s celebrate what makes a Libra shine! So if you’re a Libra or you know one, then this post is for you!

A Libra’s Personality

Characteristics of a Libra, MusicA Libra is someone who likes to keep the peace. They do their best to make everyone around them happy and as a result, struggle with the word no. While their intentions are good – their desire to please others can make them feel stressed or overwhelmed. However, their kind personality, gentle manner, and desire for harmony continues to draw people towards them.

People born under this sign do not like to be alone. They value partnership (whether through romantic relationships, friendships, or interactions at work) and look at the people in their lives to offer balance and support. Thanks to their easy-going nature, the Libra is often celebrated for their social skills. Not only do they make good party guests but they have the ability to smooth over hurt feelings and moments of tension.

There are many positive attributes connected to this sign, including their ability to be objective. People of this sign are known for being patient and diplomatic. They are able to listen to different sides with an open heart and mind. They encourage fair solutions to problems…which falls in line with their peaceful manner.

A Libra is also known for being friendly, creative, and a logical problem solver. They tend to be optimistic and on the extroverted side, with a desire to share their love for life at every opportunity. But be warned! This sign can also be indecisive and unreliable. Their need for peace means they often give too much of themselves to others. Some may take advantage of that, leading to feelings of frustration.

Additionally, the Libra personality can often appear unemotional, detached, or self-indulgent. Since they love the finer things in life (music, art, poetry, and so on), they may behave in a way that appears to others to be over the top or self-serving. To combat this, it is important that the Libra steps back to evaluate their life and behavior every so often. This will help them achieve a balanced and happy existence.

A Libra in Love

Virgo in Love, Zodiac Characteristics

When it comes to romantic relationships, this sign is all about idealism. They are in love with the idea of what love can and should be. They tend to be optimistic – which carries into their romantic life. As a result, they believe in a once-in-a-lifetime forever type of love and are extremely romantic people. (Not to worry! The fact that this sign is pleasant and charming makes it easy for them to interact with others and draw them in.) This is largely due to Venus being their ruling planet.

Finding someone to share their life with is a priority for the Libra. They base much of their existence around finding and maintaining a solid relationship. Once they have a partner in their lives, their focus shifts to creating a peaceful and harmonious union. They will do everything in their power to make the relationship work, as once they have made up their mind about being with someone, nothing will sway them.

Since Libra is the sign of marriage, they feel a pull towards traditions (meet, date, marry, start a family). They are more satisfied when their relationships fit into those traditional expectations. When it comes to the partner they choose…. this sign wants someone who can set clear boundaries and offer protection without being overbearing.

To attract a Libra, they key is to focus on romance. A romantic gesture will go a long way in winning their heart! It is also a good idea to be social, showcase your logical way of thinking, and avoid appearing overly aggressive.

What Interests a Libra?

Characteristics of a Libra, MuseumThe Libra loves romance, the arts, and anything aesthetically pleasing. When it comes to hobbies and interests, this sign loves to go to a museum, check out a concert, partake in home decorating, or go for a romantic picnic in the park. They may also enjoy an afternoon of shopping. Alternatively, the Libran might prefer some laid-back and leisurely time at home, watching a TV show or movie (that is not violent) or reading a book. You may also find them tidying the house during their free time, as this sign loves when their home looks good.

Libras and Their Colours

Virgo Colours, Zodiac Characteristics

If you fall under this star sign, then you may find certain colors have been calling to you over the course of your life. They are likely blue, white, pink, and black. The reasons for these are as follows:

Blue: Since Libra is an air sign, blue is by far the most compatible color. It symbolizes balance and harmony in all areas of life. This ties in well with the common personality traits of the Libra as they enjoy peace and beauty.

White: Another color representing balance, peace, and harmony, white is constantly drawn to the Libran. It represents purity, goodness, and cleanliness – all of which fall in line with the Libra’s positive attributes.

Pink: Of course, pink is tied to the Libra in some way. This most often represents love and romance as well as charm and tenderness. It only makes sense that the Libra is drawn to this color, as they have a high regard for all things related to love and relationships.

Black: While initial reactions to black may be negative (this shade is often associated with death, darkness, and mystery), in relation to this Zodiac sign, it makes complete sense. Why? Black also has been linked to elegance, formality, and prestige. Perfect for someone who enjoys the finer things in life!

Libras and Food

Green Vegetables, Virgo Food, Zodiac Characteristics

When it comes to eating well under this sign, it is important for the Libran to choose a high-protein diet that is low in fat, sugar, and foods that produce acid. Focus on eating lots of fish and seafood, yogurt, low-fat cheeses, and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables to obtain optimal health. Drinking plenty of water is also important, as this sign tends to have sensitive skin. It can easily show the effects of dehydration, lack of sleep, or improper eating.

To all of the Libras out there, Happy Birthday! Sending you lots of love and light during this exciting time.

Shannon, Cosmic Positivity


Characteristics of a Libra, Zodiac, Astrology SignThanks so much Shannon, great post! Those are definitely traits to keep in mind when you’re out with your Libra friends. You can find more about the Zodiac and other positive vibes from Shannon and Amanda here at Cosmic Positivity.

Did you know Crystals also correspond to our Zodiac signs? If you want to attract positive vibes, you should keep your Zodiac Crystals with you at all times. Birthstones are a major source of energy and bring positivity to your life.  

Libra crystals can infuse your life with joy and bring all your dreams to fruition.  In fact, they can restore your body’s equilibrium and balance by aligning your mind, body, and spirit.  

Zodiac Crystals for Libra
Libra Crystals – Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli is the “power stone” for all Libras.  It’s found in pendants, scarabs and other ornamental objects in Ancient Egypt from over a thousand years ago. In fact, King Tut’s sarcophagus contains items and jewelry made with this crystal. Ultimately, this crystal has been of value for its healing properties for a long time. Lapis Lazuli can bring regal energy and furthers the journey of self-discovery and self-mastery. This stone opens the 3rd eye Chakra and helps with awareness, wisdom, balance, and serenity.

If you want to take charge of your life, release repressed anger, and confront truths surrounding your life, this stone is for you!  In addition, Lapis Lazuli brings deep peace when you need it most, it releases stress and it can also help with migraines.

Libra Crystals – Labradorite

Labradorite is a mystical and protective stone which magnifies your intention. Use this crystal to bring awareness to your inner power and it’ll lead you to discover your destiny. Labradorite can bring you closer to the discovery of your true self when it stimulates your inner awareness.  It helps you see through any illusions you have created so you can determine tangible dreams and goals instead of chasing unattainable desires.  

Its brilliant rainbow hues create an energetic shield which strengthens your personal energy and protects your aura from the negativity of others.  

Labradorite banishes your fears and insecurities by calming your overactive mind. It replaces feelings of hopelessness and anxiety with the feeling of hope and happiness.

When you use this crystal for healing it can open and clear all the chakras and energy centers of your body.  It can regulate your metabolism and lower your blood pressure making it a great crystal to have on hand at all times.

Libra Crystals – Citrine

Citrine is a gem of manifestation.  It carries the light of the sun and will always bring happiness to your day.  Use Citrine to attract wealth and abundance into your life.  There are more benefits of Citrine listed here in How to Balance your Chakras Part 3 – The Solar Plexus.

Libra Crystals – Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz is the most widely know crystal in the world.  There is a common factor which connects humans and quartz; we both contain silicon dioxide.  This compound attracts energy and can fuel communication.  Quartz brings clarity of the mind and helps you to focus on your dreams and goals.  

Program this crystal with your intention and by doing so it constantly puts it out into the universe, even when you are not thinking about it.  This ensures your dreams can come true.  You can find more benefits of Clear Quartz listed here in How to Balance your Chakras Part 7 – The Crown.

You can find all these crystals here in the Energy Muse Libra Zodiac Bag.  It contains 1 Lapis Lazuli stone, 1 Labradorite stone, 1 Citrine stone and 2 Quartz Crystal stones.

Affirmation: I am connected to the energy of my birthstones. They will bring me many blessings.

CRYSTAL DECOR FOR YOUR CHAKRAS

One of the easiest ways to add crystals to your life is through home decor. There are beautiful large specimens and other accessories you can place throughout your home.

I’ve found these fantastic Selenite Bookends from Anthropologie. In fact, check out my Pinterest Board Crystals in Home Decor. It’s a great resource and online shop for crystal inspiration.

In this installment, we’ll delve into the 7th Chakra and its properties. The main focus will be which crystals are best used to clear and keep your Chakra balanced. Crystal jewelry is the primary method we’ll use to balance your Chakras, let’s take a look!

Part 7: THE CROWN CHAKRA

How to Balance Your Chakras, Crown Chakra, Clear Quartz, Botswana Agate

The 7th Chakra is located at the crown of your head and its associated with all the senses. This Chakra opens upwards towards the heavens and the universe. The element associated with the Crown is the Spirit.

Our Crown Chakra coordinates all glands in the endocrine system. Imbalances could include symptoms of Headaches, Epilepsy and even Parkinson’s disease. These blockages usually result when you deny your life purpose.

When you bottle up emotions and desires, or when you just settle for your meager existence, it can cause you to be unhappy and block in your Chakras.

Instead of blossoming like a Lotus flower which grows up through the earth and water. You falter, become unhappy and develop illnesses.

Unlike the Lotus, who once in the air and light becomes a beautiful flower, you will struggle to be an energized complete person. You will find it difficult to keep a clear focus on your goals and may cause you to let your dreams slip away. A blockage in this Chakra will make it harder for you to become connected to your spirit.

The Crown Chakra is known to help us transcend our earthbound state. It connects us to our universal energy grid experiencing a state of pure transcendental consciousness.

CROWN CHAKRA CRYSTALS

Crystals to help unblock and cleanse your 7th Chakra are Clear Quartz and Botswana Agate.

Clear Quartz for your Crown Chakra

Crown Chakra Crystals, Clear Quartz, Balance Your Chakras As the most powerful healing crystal on the planet, Clear Quartz amplifies energy and all crystals around it. Found worldwide, it’s the most widely recognized crystal. Did you know this stone was used as the base of the Great Pyramids? Quartz has been used for thousands of years to absorb, store, release, and regulate energy. In Chakra healing, it is excellent for blockages.

Clear Quartz vibrates at a level attuned to whatever ailment you may have and amplifies any complimentary crystals used in grids. It raises energy to the highest vibrational state as it cleanses and purifies the soul.

Botswana Agate for your Crown Charka

Crown Chakra, Botswana Agate, Crystal Jewelry, Crystal HealingBotswana Agate stimulates your Crown Chakra by harmonizing celestial and earth energies with your physical body. This crystal teaches you to look at the solutions or lessons rather than to dwell on a problem. Instead of being destructive and having obsessive thoughts, it allows you see the bigger picture.

This stone is wonderful for the exploration of new ideas and ignites your creative passions.

Crystal Jewelry

Throughout this series, we’ve seen how all these beautiful pieces of Crystal jewelry can be worn to help clear each Chakra individually.

One piece, in particular, is a practical solution to wearing all 21 of the crystals we’ve discussed in this series.  It’s designed using sacred geometry and should be cleansed and charged with the intention to balance your Chakras.

I’ve mentioned my Chakra Bracelet from Energy Muse throughout this series. In fact, it’s why I wrote the series. I wanted to showcase how each crystal it contains can benefit you.   As I’ve said, I really don’t feel like myself when I leave it at home, which isn’t often!

I hope you’ll now consider your Chakras in your health routine. My goal is to pass on the knowledge for the use of crystals in meditation, bath rituals and healing grids. I hope to help keep your energy flowing and in balance.

When you clear, unblock and heal your 7 Chakra centers, you can be a more balanced and happy person who creates a life of your own design one Chakra at a time!

All tumbled crystals for the Crown can be found here at Energy Muse.

Virgo and the Zodiac – August 23 to September 22.

Today begins the Virgo season! Let’s celebrate what makes a Virgo shine! So if you’re a Virgo or you know one, then this post is for you!

A Virgo’s Personality

Focus, Virgo Personality, Zodiac CharacteristicsA Virgo is a person who is consumed by their thoughts. A lot of them can be both critical and self-critical. Focusing on every detail and wanting things to perfect allows them to be great employees. They are intelligent, precise and super organised. These are all great qualities to have.

Virgos are not spontaneous or big risk takers. They have to think everything through and understand everything down to the last detail. This sign likes to take things apart, just to put it back together again. They also fight for noble, and they will not stop until justice has been served. You will see a lot of them fight for the underdog, taking on lost causes. This is because they have big hearts, and very empathic towards these causes.

Virgos love to have an intelligent and stimulating conversation with people. They can be very wise, and realistic. These two qualities allow them to learn about many different topics and carry on a conversation with all sorts of people.

Virgos are not people who enjoy change, at all. In fact, anything that throws them off track can upset them greatly. Try not to be late when meeting this sign as they will see it as a sign of disrespect. Word to the wise, don’t postpone anything. Virgos do not believe in putting off something that could be done right away.

A Virgo in Love

Virgo in Love, Zodiac CharacteristicsWhen it comes to relationships and friendships, Virgos prefer to not focus on just affection and passion. While they know that these are important in a relationship, they are not everything. They want to move past the honeymoon phase and begin something real.

Virgos do not jump into a relationship quickly. It is a long road before they are willing to say yes to a relationship. Once they are in one, they are 100% faithful and need reassurance from their partner that they will stay with them.

So how do you seduce a Virgo? With your mind of course! A Virgo male will appreciate you looking classy and elegant, rather than seductive. Wise tip ladies- take an interest in what he is interested in. It’s the fastest way to his heart. A female Virgo will focus in on the man who is well kept. If you want to impress her be the perfect gentleman. Dress to impress, be attentive and thoughtful. You will win her heart right away.

Once in a relationship, Virgos can be tender and show affection. They are the type to cuddle rather than be cuddled. Since Virgos are more analytical and are always lost in their thoughts, they sometimes can’t show their feelings as well as others.

What Interests a Virgo?

Games Chess, Virgo Interests, Zodiac CharacteristicsSince Virgos enjoy using their minds and value strategy and intelligent games over anything else. If you want to have fun with a Virgo choose games like chess, golf, snooker, or board games like Carcassonne, or Settlers of Catan. They love computers and other high-tech gadgets as well. When it comes to nature activities, take a Virgo rock climbing or hiking. They’ll love that!

Virgos and Their Colours

Virgo Colours, Zodiac CharacteristicsIf you are a Virgo, you may notice your favourite colours are green, white, grey, yellow or orange. Try to stick to these colours as much as you can. They should always be your go-to colours. Why? Well, let’s look at what they mean!

Green- This is a soothing colour. It helps to provide balance for your body, mind and soul. It will help to calm you and allow you to feel empathy.

White- This is the colour of purity and protection. It helps to eliminate negativity around you and push you towards forgiveness and acceptance.

Grey- Think of this colour as the colour of compromise, since it the mixture of white and black. It promotes dependability and practical thinking.

Yellow- To bring joy into your life, bring more yellow into it. It is warm and very cheerful. It also promotes hope and gives you a sense of direction.

Orange- Another joyful colour, this colour allows you to be assertive and persistent. This colour is the balance between red and yellow. This colour will help to look at things differently and will encourage you to brainstorm new ideas.

Virgos and Food

Green Vegetables, Virgo Food, Zodiac CharacteristicsWhen it comes to eating Virgos, need to be careful. A Virgo’s digestive system is fussy at best. Mixed with a slow metabolism, raw vegetables are a necessity. Virgos are amazing in the kitchen, so finding healthy recipes should not be a problem. Not only do they want things to taste amazing, but they should look amazing too. If you are a Virgo and do all the grocery shopping, remember you don’t always have to choose the most expensive piece of meat. Make sure to bring a grocery list, and stay under budget. When cooking, try to stick to smaller meals.

Happy birthday you beautiful Virgos! Enjoy your season and make the most of it. This time is you for you!

I’ve found an Agate Cheese Board from Anthropologie. In fact, check out my Pinterest Board Crystals in Home Decor it’s a great resource and online shop for crystal inspiration.

Part 6: THE THIRD EYE CHAKRA

How to Balance Your Chakras, 3rd Eye Chakra, Healing Crystals, Fluorite, Amethyst

First and foremost, your brow or 3rd eye is the 6th Chakra is associated your mind. Blockages in this Chakra prevent us from knowledge and wisdom. When you clear this blocked energy it enables you to move beyond being stuck in your head. You can then ignore the chatter to look deep within yourself. Additionally, a great way to balance and clear this Chakra is to mediate. When you meditate, you can access your psychic and intuitive abilities.

The endocrine glands associated with this Chakras are the Pituitary Glands. These glands are responsible for the secretion of serotonin and melatonin which are the mood and sleep controllers. Furthermore, health problems include eye problems like light sensitivities from issues with the Pineal Gland, and there can also be symptoms of headaches and migraines. These imbalances can lead to depression if this Chakra is not balanced and cleared.

The color associated with this Chakra is deep blue and eating eggplants, and other blue foods like Blueberries balance our spiritual needs. Coupled with, meditation, exercise like yoga and reiki sessions, these daily practices can clear your mind and tune into your spirituality.

I make a smoothie using my Arbonne Chocolate Protein Shake with Almond Milk, Chia, and Hemp seeds.  I add Blueberries every morning to start my day. Usually, this shake combo keeps me full well past lunch!

3RD EYE CHAKRA CRYSTALS

FLUORITE FOR YOUR 3RD EYE CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, 3rd Eye Chakra, Fluorite, Crystal HealingsFluorite cleanses and stabilizes the aura. As a matter of fact, it draws off stress and negative energy which makes it very beneficial to heal anxiety. This stone can help you become aware of your higher psychic abilities. It also focuses the mind and links it with the universal mind during meditation.

I love this crystal because it promotes structure in your everyday life. My moon in Capricorn loves structure and craves discipline. Fluorite helps you move beyond narrow-mindedness and lets you see the bigger picture so you can focus on the important issues at hand.

Generally speaking, Fluorite promotes quick thinking and helps you absorb new information. It helps you organize and process information. It’s great to have on hand when you have to learn something quickly, or you are a student.

 

AMETHYST FOR YOUR 3RD EYE CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, 3rd Eye Chakra, Amethyst, Crystal HealingFirst of all, Amethyst is my go-to stone, and it was the first crystal I purchased. I sleep with Amethyst Geodes at the top of my bed. Generally speaking, they are known as the “sober stone” to promote safe choices and sobriety. This crystal has a high vibration which facilitates making decisions and puts insights into practice. Overall, Amethyst is perfect to dispel anger, fear, and anxiety and can help you get through times of grief.

Amethyst balances the endocrine system and helps with metabolism. It also cleanses the aura and transmutes negative energy rising from the throat Chakra. In summary, because of these properties, Amethyst has been used as jewelry for thousands of years. Check out the shopping window below, I found a bunch of Amethyst jewelry for you!

SIMPLE WAYS TO INCLUDE CRYSTALS TO HELP YOUR CHAKRAS

One of the easiest ways to add crystals to your every day is through home decor. There are beautiful large specimens and other accessories you can place through your home. I’ve found Crystal drawer knobs on Anthropologie. In fact, check out my Pinterest Board Crystals in Home Decor it’s a great resource and online shop for crystal inspiration.

Another simple way to have crystals in your everyday life is to wear crystal jewelry.

My go-to piece of jewelry is my Chakra Healing Bracelet from Energy Muse. I really don’t feel like myself when I leave it at home, which isn’t often!

The Chakra Bracelet has 21 healing crystals which relate to each of your 7 Chakras. We will discuss each of these stones throughout this series.

In this installment, we will delve into the 5th Chakra, its properties and the crystals used to help clear and keep it balanced. As shown above, crystal jewelry will be the primary method we will use to balance your chakras, let’s take a look at the wonderful array of Throat Chakra crystals.

Part 5: THE THROAT CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, Throat Chakra, Crystal Healing, Sodalite, Angelite, Dumortierite, Amazonite, Apatite

The 5th Chakra is the Throat Chakra, and it is the connection of our Hearts to our minds, in other words, the gateway to reach our higher consciousness.

The Throat Chakras is associated with communication, freedom of expression and its color is blue. Eat blue fruits and vegetables to soothe your Throat Chakra. I make a smoothie using my Arbonne Chocolate Protein Shake with Almond Milk, Chia, and Hemp seeds.  I add Blueberries every morning to start my day. Usually, this shake combo keeps me full well past lunch!

Verbalizing emotion is not everyone’s strong suit. Anger comes out through our voice.  When this happens it means our throat Chakra needs work, there is too much energy blocked in this area. I can vouch I can feel the tightness. I try to meditate with my blue crystals and work out my blockages. For the most part, this method of using crystal jewelry and crystals in meditation works very well for me.

HEALTH ISSUE ASSOCIATED WITH THE THROAT CHAKRA

Problems with your ears, throat, nose and respiratory problems can arise with blockages in this area. Also, people can be on the other end of the spectrum too and be shy, fearful and afraid to speak up.

You can also be prone to shut down communication with others if you can’t express your inner feelings. Depression is common among those with blockages in their Throat Chakra.

Over time it has become common practice for people to visit therapists and psychologists to heal emotional issues.  These sessions can help you figure out who you are and what you are meant to pursue in life. We need to work out our blockages in a verbal way, and it’s wonderful we have so many options to find an ear to listen. In short, when you talk through your problems and maybe have a cry, you release negative energy, and it makes you feel better.

The endocrine gland associated with the Throat is the Thyroid, and it’s an important gland because it controls our metabolism. It also helps the para thyroids to maintain healthy bones, nerves, and muscles. It’s vital to our overall health to balance and clear this Chakra. Physically, emotionally and mentally, this Chakra is the key to what lies between our body and our spirit. Given these points, let’s take a look at crystals we can use to heal our Throat Chakra.

THROAT CHAKRA CRYSTALS
SODALITE FOR YOUR THROAT CHAKRA

Sodalite can instill truth and makes it possible for you to stand up for yourself and your beliefs. This stone helps you verbalize your feelings. For the most part, this stone is ideal for tranquility and peace, and it can also calm panic attacks.

We touched on my experience with crystals in the first installment. When I started to wear crystal jewelry I noticed a positive change in my behavior, ambition and lifestyle choices. Crystals are also the inspiration for the book series I’m writing. They are the main theme for this blog and the products I feature on Pinterest, Instagram, and my Facebook Page.  Take a look and be sure to follow me!

SIMPLE WAYS TO INCLUDE CHAKRA HEALING IN YOUR DAY

I find an easy way to include crystals in your every day is through home decor. I have items such as large geodes, salt lamps, wall art and carved sculptures placed around my home.

Here is a beautiful Crystal Inspiration from Anthropologie.

Crystal Decor, Crystals, Anthropologie, Balance Your Chakras

 

 

 

Another simple way to have crystals in your everyday life is to wear crystal jewelry.  I wear mine at all times for protection from negative energy and as amplifiers to keep my energy balanced.  When I feel calm, my intuition comes through, and I can focus on the important things in life. Those things include my partner Derek, our crazy adventures as Crystal Hunters, and growing our online business.

My go-to piece of jewelry is my Chakra Healing Bracelet from Energy Muse. I really don’t feel like myself when I leave it at home, which isn’t often!

The Chakra Bracelet has 21 healing crystals which relate to each of your 7 Chakras. We will discuss each of these stones throughout this series.

My creativity for my books and the flood of ideas started when I found crystals. This drive to build our business stems from the energy of the crystals in our home, and from the jewelry we wear.

In this installment, we’ll delve into the 4th Chakra called the Heart Chakra. We’ll take a brief look at the properties of this Chakra and the crystals which help keep it clear and balanced.

PART 4: THE HEART CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, Heart Chakra, Rose Quartz, Aventurine, Leopard Skin Jasper, Crystal Healing

We associate the Heart with our 4th Chakra although the gland responsible for its energy is the Thymus.  This gland regulates our immune system and keeps us healthy.

The element associated with this Chakra is Air, and its colors are green and pink. Common foods eaten to heal blockages are vegetables and greens, for instance, Spinach has the ability to cleanse and balance our entire bodies.

Although this is called the Heart Chakra, it is not necessarily meant to heal or attract romantic love. It helps to stimulate ALL encompassing love. When our Heart Chakra is not balanced, we do not feel empathy or love towards others nor ourselves. This can lead to circulatory issues and heart disease. Feelings of frustration and anger towards others and ourselves results in high stress and illness.

When we work on issues relating to the heart like emotional trauma, grief, and sadness we can prevent heart problems. Letting these emotions out and having a good cry is very therapeutic and heals your soul.

When we balance and heal our emotional issues, the practice of self-love along with empathy towards others can lead to a more healthy life and heart.

HEART CHAKRA CRYSTALS
ROSE QUARTZ FOR THE HEART CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, Heart Chakra, Crystal Healing, Rose Quartz, CrystalsMost of us will recognize Rose Quartz as the crystal used to cleanse and balance the Heart Chakra, as it opens the heart up to love. It also teaches you the true essence of love by clearing this Chakra to allow inner healing and self-love.

When you love who you are, you will attract someone who will grow to love you too. Self-love is so important because when you stop comparing yourself to others, you can focus on what makes you happy.

At one point in my life, I did not like myself.  I was forever worried about what other people thought and compared my behind the scenes life to their public triumphs.  Since crystals have come into my life, especially Rose Quartz, I like myself more every day.  I find I don’t pay attention to what others are doing and focus on what I need to do instead.

Rose Quartz opens your heart and lifts you up, so you feel fulfilled when others return the love you ignite in them. This crystal provides optimism and problem-solving in a place of love.

An affordable way to have the added benefit of Rose Quartz with you all the time is with Love Junkie necklace from Energy Muse. This dainty crystal necklace will compliment any look. You will radiate beauty from the sparkle in  your eyes to your beautiful smile when you wear this piece. This necklace has to do with all things love, happiness, pure joy and all the pleasantries in life.

AFFIRMATION: “Let there be Love.”

AVENTURINE FOR THE HEART CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, Heart Chakra, Aventurine, Crystal HealingAventurine is another favorite crystal of mine for the heart Chakra. I am drawn to this stone because it is an all around healing stone bringing emotional calm and well-being. It’s a crystal of protection from electromagnetic pollution and it dissolves negative emotions.

This stone enables you to live within your heart, by dispelling anger and irritation, it allows you to be aware of your true feelings. I use this stone to help me get to the bottom of my anger blow ups. Why I am I freaking out over something insignificant? What are the real reasons? I dig deeper with this stone to figure out my emotional issues. It is also a lucky stone, and it doesn’t hurt to have one of those in your pocket or as jewelry.

LEOPARD SKIN JASPER FOR THE HEART CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, Heart Chakra, Leopard Skin Jasper, CrystalsLeopard Skin Jasper helps you pay attention to the people who are helpful and conducive to your personal growth.  It reminds you to help others in return and attracts harmonious vibrations into your life.  Jasper is a supreme nurturing stone, and it helps you attain what you need on your journey.

Salt Lamps produce negative salt ions when heated and these ions rid the air of pollutants. It can also help you sleep better and can aid with asthma symptoms.

Part 3: THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, Solar Plexus Chakra, Chakras, Citrine, Yellow Jasper, Yellow Jade

 

You can find your Solar Plexus or the 3rd Chakra in the center of the bottom of your ribcage. Its corresponding endocrine gland is the pancreas, and this controls your insulin levels and glucose in the blood. If glucose levels are unbalanced it can lead to diabetes.

The Solar Plexus is the Chakra responsible for your will, power, and drive. This Chakra is connected to the element fire, and the sense related to the Solar Plexus is our sight.

Manipura, Balance your Chakras, Chakras, Solar PlexusYou can balance this Chakra by eating citrus to stimulate, and you can calm it with bananas.  The symbol which represents the Solar Plexus is called Manipura.

This Chakra is responsible for our assessment of how other people perceive us. We associate yellow with our 3rd Chakra, it draws the bright light of the Sun into everything we do.  You can consider it the light force or power center of your being. If there are energy blockages in this center, you will feel unhappy, and the natural light inside of you will not shine through.

HEALTH ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH THE SOLAR PLEXUS

This Chakra deals with digestion, and I think it is one of the most important Chakras to heal and one of the most commonly blocked. I can attest, it is my problem area. I have a larger collection of yellow crystals to aid in my healing which I have dealt with digestive issues, skin breakouts, a leaky gut and how I handled stress.

SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA CRYSTALS
CITRINE FOR THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA

Balance Your Chakras, Solar Plexus Chakra, Citrine, Crystal HealingOne of the most common crystals used to heal the Solar Plexus is Citrine. You can attract sunlight, abundance, and wealth with this crystal.

You never have to cleanse this stone. It’s always ready and willing to carry out your intentions.  I believe Citrine is essential to any collection. It was one of my first crystals, and I keep them in the wealth corner of my home.

 

 

When you use Citrine to help cleanse the important energy center of the Solar Plexus, you release negative traits.  It also promotes joy and leaves you open to new experiences and adventures.

 

YELLOW JASPER FOR THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA

This crystal channels positive energy into your Chakra to help heal your stomach and digestive problems by releasing toxins. You can use Yellow Jasper as a pain reliever, just place on the area until the pain eases.

The Adrenal Glands are the energy centers which relate to your Sacral Chakra, you can find it just below your navel. Our life sustaining energy centers around this area, which includes our creativity and our ability to cope with stress. This Chakra helps you form healthy relationships, fuels your enthusiasm and amplifies your joy in life. It is represented by the color ORANGE and relates to your sense of taste.

Its symbol is called Svadhisthana and is represented below.

How to Balance Your Chakras, Sacral Chakra, Healing Crystals, Sacral Symbol SvadhisthanaHEALTH PROBLEMS AND YOUR SACRAL CHAKRA

When this Chakra is out of balance, because it is linked to the element water, it causes the kidneys and urinary track to have issues.

The Adrenal glands produce cortisol and this controls inflammation. When this Chakra is unbalanced it can affect your arthritis because of the balance of water, salt and sugar in your body. I love using my Carnelian Palm stone for my arthritis.  The Adrenal glands also produce adrenalin and affect us when we are stressed, allowing us to react to flight or fight stimuli.

Sometimes when this Chakra is blocked it prevents the experience of unconditional love.  Blockages stop energy from rising through your body during sexual intercourse, so love and emotion can’t rise to your heart. It is important to work on this Chakra so you can form strong and balanced relationships.

Oranges, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and peaches are supportive foods of the Sacral Chakra and the following crystals can be used to heal it.

SACRAL CHAKRA CRYSTALS
CARNELIAN FOR YOUR SACRAL CHAKRA

Sacral Chakra crystals would include Carnelian for creative pursuits. I love Carnelian because it helps you make positive life choices and motivates you towards success.

It gave me confidence in myself to pursue my dreams and follow my creative desires.  Carnelian also sharpens your concentration.

I wear solid Tiger’s Eye bracelets to assist me in accomplishing my goals. This stone helps you recognize your inner resources and promotes clarity of intention. It allows you to focus on the task at hand and accomplish positive changes.

How to Balance Your Chakras: Part 1

Attract positive vibes into your life when you balance your Chakras with Crystals. Let your Aura shine!

As an introduction to crystals, I thought it best to start with the energy centers of our body, the Chakras. My goal is to show you how crystals help each one of these centers and attract positive vibes in your life.

In the coming weeks, I will explain the seven Chakras and how you can increase your energy frequency with crystals. Let’s begin with how I became interested in crystals and discovered their health benefits.

HOW I DISCOVERED CHAKRAS & CRYSTALS

How to Balance Your Chakras, Base Chakra, Crystal Healing, Hematite, Smokey Quartz, Red JasperA few years ago,  I was unhappy and didn’t know why.  I went on a journey of health and self-discovery. Through this search, I sought my purpose and looked deep inside to address my unhappiness. A friend introduced me to Reiki, I started to practice yoga and ate clean.  I found I related to the energy principles and decided to learn Reiki myself and I earned my first level certification during this time.

The attunement process was intense for me, I could feel energy vibrations and overwhelming emotions. I delved deeper into the world of energy, chakras, health, wellness, and mindset. All of this led me to crystals.

For the last few years, I’ve learned a lot about crystals and how they can help you find health and happiness. When I saw noticeable results in my mood, attitude, health, and quality of sleep, it made me want to share this with others. I find when you love something so much you want to pass on the knowledge.

My love of crystals has led me to pursue my dreams.  They have given me the courage to take a leap, and the determination to stick with it and see it through. I hope they will bring the same light to your purpose.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND ENERGY, CRYSTALS & CHAKRAS

When I talk about crystals with friends, I find some have no idea about their known properties. Some people like to collect minerals and know they are used for grids, and they may have energy. While others think the concept and benefits are all in our heads, a placebo.

Although I believe everyone has their own opinion, the properties of frequency and vibration have been proven by science.  We learned the Laws of vibration through Physics.  The work of Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla proves everything around us is vibrating at different frequencies.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”  – Nikola Tesla

Ancient cultures used crystals in many ways, even to heal. Did you know the base of the Pyramids is solid Quartz?  Quartz is the highest crystal energy amplifier in the world. It’s like science has caught up to what ancient people may have known all along.

Were you aware crystals keep growing until they are split, broken or cut from the earth?

“In a crystal we have clear evidence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.” – Nikola Tesla

These and other concepts we will discuss later and are the basis for my book series.

STYLE, CRYSTALS & OUR CHAKRAS

Even if you don’t believe in the healing properties of crystals, there is something in the information I provide which may be beneficial to you. For instance, beautiful jewelry perhaps? You can always be stylish while you balance your Chakras.

In this 7 part series, I’m also going to show you the choices you have in wearing jewelry with healing or positive benefits.

Balance Your Chakras, Chakras, Chakra Bracelet, Crystal Jewelry, Adele Walsh BlogI LOVE crystal jewelry. It’s such a convenient way to have a positive influence on you at all times.  I will provide a few different choices of jewelry for each Chakra. Although I prefer natural tumbled stones or rough crystals, others may prefer a different look.

My favorite piece of crystal jewelry is my Chakra Bracelet from Energy Muse. I wear it every day to keep balanced and positive. It contains the 21 different crystals relating to the Chakras we will discuss over the course of this series.

Let’s start the tour by taking a look at the Chakras themselves.

 

ENERGY AND OUR CHAKRAS

One of the most amazing things on earth is the energy patterns of the planet. All living creature and stationary objects are vibrating at their own unique energy frequency. Your body has energy centers, the Chakras, which promote health, happiness, and influence how we behave. They contribute to our attitudes and how we strive towards goals in life.

If you are active, eat well and you take the time to feel your emotions during meditation, you are probably vibrating at a higher energy frequency.  If you are depressed, have substance abuse issues, and have anger or emotional outbursts, you are more than likely vibrating at a lower frequency. When you heal your Chakras and foster better energy flow in your body, you will vibrate at a higher frequency.  Crystals can raise your vibration, and therefore crystals can make you happier.

HOW TO HEAL  YOUR CHAKRAS

Energy vibrating at a higher rate has an effect on objects vibrating at a lower rate.  Do you ever notice when you are around positive people you start to feel better?  You may even start to grow and gain perspective from their influence.

Most crystals vibrate at a higher frequency, and it’s why they are used in energy healing. Crystal grids, crystal healing bags, and sessions with an energy healer like a Reiki professional can help unblock the flow of energy in your body.

When I work with crystals or do Reiki, I try to concentrate on the Chakra I feel needs attention from health problems I have been experiencing.  I usually find an emotional wound needs to be addressed.  Once you let these emotions out and have a cry, you are able to accept it.  When you let it go, you tend to move on to more productive pursuits. You’ve made space for positive things in your life by letting go of things you may have had bottled up inside.

You can heal health issues and emotional distress by opening up your own energy centers. This allows your energy frequencies to become higher and you become more positive.

ENERGY AND OUR BODY

Chakras, Aura, Balance your Chakras, EnergyThere is an energy field surrounding all of us, called our Aura. Our Aura and its energy frequency is a gauge for your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.

How your internal energy flows through your body can affect your Aura. When we combine crystals with other forms of healing like Reiki, we can unblock energy imbalances. As with any form of healing, the best practice is to include exercise, meditation, and to eat well.

Your energy flow and vibration level can affect how you feel and behave. When you increase your energy frequency with the help of crystals, healing occurs in your Chakras.

OUR ENDOCRINE GLANDS AND OUR CHAKRAS

There are 7 main Chakras, and they relate to the endocrine glands of the body. Our endocrine glands are energy pathways and communication processing centers.

The flow of energy from the Chakras travels through our meridians. Energy in these pathways travel at a much high rate of vibration than in the rest of the body.

MERIDIANS AND OUR CHAKRAS

There are 12 meridians relating to different parts of your body. Each meridian has a different peak energy time.

During certain times of day, your problem areas may flare up if you have issues in these organs. You may notice you are woken due to the increased energy taking place. For example, if you have troubles when you breathe you may wake up between 3, and 5 am with issues because it’s your lungs peak energy time.

These complications arise because your Chakras have blockages and the energy does not flow properly through your meridians to your organs.

Make sure to download your copy of the 7 Chakra summary, with a bonus of the peak energy times of the 12 Meridians.

THE BASE CHAKRA

The 1st Chakra is called the Base or Root Chakra located at the base of the spine. It connects or grounds the energy of our body with the energy of the earth element.

Our sense of security, survival, and prosperity are linked to this Chakra where it grounds us in the reality of this world.  The symbol for the 1st Chakra called Muladhara is below.

The color Red is associated with the Base Chakra, and our sense of scent. You may have problems with your sinuses if you have emotional issues related to feelings of belonging and feeling safe.

HEALTH PROBLEMS AND THE BASE CHAKRA

To heal and circulate energy in this area brings confidence in ourselves and in the world outside. The endocrine glands associated with this Chakra are the gonads, problems areas would include lower back pain, issues with your feet, and problems with sexual organs including fertility. You can help balance your Root Chakra by eating red fruits and vegetables like red peppers and strawberries.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers New Album The Getaway

www.redhotchilipeppers.com

The Red Hot Chili Peppers new album The Getaway is a perfect example of how opening up to change can take you to another level.

Through any career, especially creative pursuits, you have to be willing to evolve and shake things up to get better. You can’t stay in one place if you want to grow.

The 11th studio album from the Red Hot Chili Peppers has a new perspective in the form of a new producer. Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) took the reigns for The Getaway. His new direction was a welcome change and offered a different presentation than we usually see from the band.

Dark Necessities

 

I love this album, and this album made me love the Red Hot Chili Peppers again.

Honestly, since Blood Sugar Sex Magik and it’s enormous success, the Red Hot Chili Peppers sort of fell off my radar. Their tumultuous band life and a kind of stagnant sound had been leaving me looking for more.

Sure I’d hear a new release on the radio over the years and like it enough to learn the chorus or a great line, but never grabbing my attention enough to pursue the album as a whole.

This album changed it for me. It has to do with three things in no particular order.

  1. Danger Mouse
  2. Josh Klinghoffer
  3. It’s a breakup album

Danger Mouse has taken them in a different direction with their sound. He also co-writes and plays on some of the songs.

Kiedis revealed in an interview Danger Mouse didn’t like all the songs they brought to him and asked them to work and change many they had already written. It was a very collaborative effort in the end, and the result is fantastic.

Go RoBot

 

 

His flare on the album is apparent and a welcome change for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

My favorite songs on the album are “Feasting on the Flowers” and “The Hunter.”

 

 

 

I would call this album beautiful. A look into love and loss, shared experience, and their survival as a band.

The album cover itself has the theme of survival. “Coalition II” a painting by Kevin Paterson is the first existing piece of art used as an album cover by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The artist himself a survivor of addiction says it depicts:

“The strength that it takes growing up in the world today, those traumas that it takes to get through it, and to survive and thrive.”

Fleas unhappiness with creative cohesiveness has been documented numerous times over the years. He would often contemplate the bands future and if he belonged to it.

Flea himself had a disruption during the recording of this album in the form of a snowboarding accident. He broke his arm which delayed recording by six months in trying to re-scheduled with Danger Mouse.

Flea revealed to 102.1 the edge he enjoyed the time to himself but was grateful to play again. All the bullshit didn’t matter anymore; he just wanted to play in a band with his friends.

Another welcome influence on this album from Danger Mouse is the emergence of Josh Klinghoffer.

Yes he was on their last Album “I’m with you,” but if you’ve ever listened to it, he’s in the background.

On this new album the Getaway, he shines through loud and clear.

The Getaway Album

 

On each song, he adds his style, and it shows. He is now apart of the band and at times is a driving force.

I hear influences of the Doors in his playing, and it shines through in “The Hunter.”  The song was originally written by Flea on the piano. He actually plays trumpet for this song on the album while Josh plays the bass.

“I laid it down on piano, the whole thing from beginning to end, and then Josh (Klinghoffer, guitar) started playing all this stuff over it and it kept the piano. You know what I mean? So, it has that feeling of the piano on it and then Josh played all the stuff. Josh plays the bass on that song too. And then Chad (Smith) played drums after.” – Flea via Songfacts

The Hunter

 

The album, by Anthony Keidis’s admission, has songs and themes of breaking up. He and his girlfriend of 2 years had a May-December relationship. They recently split, and you can hear Keidis process his loss.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers enjoyed the creative change, and the direction Danger Mouse brought to the table. It can be viewed as a challenge and a stepping stone to keep changing it up. Sitting in the same place with the same old habits can be comfortable. Change is uncomfortable but brings you out of your shell.  It shows what you can accomplish and the great heights you can reach.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Carpool Karaoke

 

In their 30 plus year career as a band, The Red Hot Chili Peppers did not allow for an entirely peaceful and tranquil journey.

Addiction and changing of the guard over the years had to be disruptive and hard at times. For a deeper clarity on their history check out Anthony Kiedis’ memoir Scar Tissue.
Although together for many years, it’s only recently they have worked through creative differences and options in constructive ways. There is a more fluid telepathy again. All members of the band are healthy and focused on the tasks at hand. Creating great music.

 

 

Accomplishments

The Red Hot Chili Peppers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 and they’ve headlined the halftime show at the Super Bowl in 2014. Over their career, they have sold 80+million albums and won 6 Grammy’s, all the while battling drug addictions, divorces, and year-long world tours. Imagine what they can do with creative stability, health, and happiness.

In the ever positive words of drummer Chad Smith.

Just.Getting.Started.

I had the fortune of seeing the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Toronto at the ACC for The Getaway Tour. It was an energetic show, and they played many of their hits and songs from the new album. Lighting and distance prevented a great shot, but I will leave you with the recognizable symbol of the ever evolving Red Hot Chili Peppers.
You can check out their Tour here.
