Crystals are as old as the world and are a history recorder… Connecting with them might seem impossible….! But there are simple ways to connect with them.
If you are new to crystals and the crystal world… you can go into a crystal store and see how you are vibing with them. See what crystal speaks to you and your energy. How do you do that? Simple- pick it up close your eyes and see if something happens with your energy, your feelings, etc…
Start with easy crystals like Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, or Amethyst… In the picture above, I am holding a Clear Quartz flame.
Here are the three simple ways to connect with your crystals!
Hold the crystal in your hand and meditate
Wear a crystal mala necklace – see image below
Drink crystal-charged water or use an orgone plate to charge your water- see the last image This is a malachite, apatite, black obsidian mala necklace. If you want to know what this necklace does, is to give you positive energy and motivation. Each, crystal has a specific, job to do! There is more info on this specific necklace, in the store. CHECK HEREHERE.
You can also connect with crystals by drinking crystal-charged water. I like to use a combo of amethyst, rose quartz, clear quartz, and green aventurine.
Let me know about your first expericence with crystals and how you connected with them.
Since the beginning of time, lapis lazuli is a beloved stone… Cleopatra was in love with this stone.
Lapis lazuli is a wisdom stone with many different minerals in it, like blue lazurite, sparkly pyrite, cloudy white calcite, and other minerals.
The deep blue colour is celestial and hypnotising. The word Lapis means stone and from the Persian word Lazhward meaning blue. The color meaning of Lapis lazuli was also used in several languages including Spanish and Portuguese Azul. Lapis Lazuli is a tually so important, that Michelangelo grounds it up to create blue paint called ultramarine that brings color and brings the robes of Mary of Nazareth painted on church walls. Cleopatra in her make-up and for nail polish as well as for her jewelry.
It is great as it protection from negative energetic and psychic attacks, it shields you with deep peace,reveals inner truth, harmony and honesty, let’s you have compassion, self – awareness, and self – expression. It’s a great Stone to align your throat chakra and to clear up communication. Lapis lazuli is an enlightening stone.
So let’s have a conversation on lapis lazuli without any religious views, political options, etc….
Tell me how you use this fantastic blue stone and why it’s one of your favourite healing stones …I love to use a heart shape lapis lazuli for my chakra grids.
There are many rituals when it comes to the moon. She is an attraction point to us humans. The moon influences the oceans, running waters was and is guidance. I guess it will continue and carry on from our ancestors and culture to future generations. My culture was and still is in some parts fond of Bendis the Goddess of the moon. Artemis is her Greek equivalent as well as Selene, that’s where the Selenite name comes from.
So how can we get in touch and reconnect with the moon? Easy… You don’t have to have any past connections… Start simple by checking out the lunar phases… You can use apps for that depending on what hemisphere you are located. Living in Australia, I am naturally using the Southern hemisphere lunar calendar. These apps are great because they are easy to use, access and everything is visible on one screen.
Simply look up moon Phase apps, or lunar apps. I use Daily moon phases, or moon shase app on Android. The new moon in on the 17th September!
Now that this is sorted, I will share with you my New Moon ritual… Don’t think it’s complicated, once you do it I am sure you will love it!
A few days before the New Moon, you should think about some goals, set some intentions. For example, you could try to clean up, organize a room, sort out your make up, or even bigger goals like getting the dream job you always wanted, buy the car, you were thinking about… ANYTHING really!
Once you set your intentions, sage your space, your apartment, house, office…. Take a bath, listen to some meditation music. If you have crystals, cleanse them with sage or selenite. And last make Moon water! Yes, moon water. Now that’s not only easy to make but fun!
In a jar place water, set it in the window or outside, and place crystals around the jar and on top of the jar. Moon water is any water that has absorbs the energy of the moon. Please don’t use plastic, glass is best. The new moon represent always a fresh start. Fill your mind with positive vibes and kind words. You are now ready to set your intentions. So your intentions for the moon water could be love. The moon has feminine energy, that’s why all the moon divinities are goddesses, like Diana(Roman), Artemis(Greek), Bendis(Romania), Chandra (India), Mani ( Vikings), Coyolxauhqui -means golden bells (Aztec ), etc…

Back to the moon water... What can I actually do with it!!!??? Well, quite a bit! I use mine for my plants. A drop here and there makes wonders for them! I also simply drink it or add it to my tea! Since we are over 60% made out of the water and the moon influences the water, tides, it can influence us, so why not take advantage of the energy of the moon?
If you want me to write a specific post only on moon water, please let me know…There is way more to talk about…
And the last part of the New Moon ritual is to show Gratitude! Yes, simply gratitude, give back, say thank you, count your blessings, and be positive!
To enhance and take advantage of the New Moonenergy I do all my Reiki session on the New Moon, you can book HERE and on the Full Moon HERE.
