Malakos is known as the mirror of the soul. Malakos is the gorgeous crystal Malachite. From the Greek word soft it was and is always special. Holding great shades of green, malachite is pure magic. A crystal that does great in all its shapes. It has its charm unpolished but polished it reaches another level! Once it’s polished, you can actually see the gorgeous pattern. In ancient Greece, and Egypt Malachite was used as a protection stone and to extract green paint. In Russia, it was used by the czars to decorate the inside of castles to protect them from the evil eye. Malachites come from many places like Russia, Romania, Zambia, and Mexico.
Cleopatra used the green Malachite as her protection makeup.
The Czars in Russia used it for decoration inside the palaces and even had a malachite room in the winter Palace. It’s definitely gorgeous. Imagine the vibes!
But I bet you wonder how to use malachite… For sure as great as it looks, if you love hot baths, a malachite tub is not for you! It might look great, but over time cracks will appear in the malachite… Malachite, does not like water. Malachite is great for absorbing negative energy around you. It also calms your mind and gives a good feeling. The pattern has a hypnotic effect and makes you feel good inside. It also builds confidence and helps on the emotional level, when is also you might feel helpless, worthless, or empty. It is also a great helper when it comes to back pain.
Malachite is a stone of transformation and it can take your energy to another level. It has feminine energy that will transform into masculine energy if needed. Basically, this stone is your to-go stone if you need protection, support on all levels, emotional, mental, physical, guidance and positivity.
Malachite protects in fear situations and is great to have when flying, driving, etc…Malachite has many different names….you know it’s called Stone of transformation, also a soft healer but it’s also a stone used in the past by midwives. It protects women during birthing, pregnancy, and monthly period pain.
Malachite is fantastic when it comes to blood pressure, and deals with the heart chakra. Since it’s a healer stone, it eases the trembles when it comes to Parkinson’s.
Now, you see Malachite is very versatile and great to use in many different areas, but it is really fascinating to use when it comes to abundance and wealth. That is one of the reasons I love to work with Malachite and transform them into a piece of art, wearable art. And so I want to combine my love of threads with this amazing stone. I will use malachite slabs and incorporate them with Romanian Point Lace, and 3D bullion elements and create a unique necklace.
If you ever wondered how I start a necklace that involves crystals…Here we go, first I cleanse and charge the crystal, after that, I start to incorporate it into the design. If it’s a custom design I incorporate the crystal into a grid as a center stone.
So you see, it does not matter, what goal you will wear for your malachite necklace, love, wealth, health, happiness, etc… it will always be a benefit to you!
Now the big question is what color should I combine with malachite? I love both salmon and light beige (has a silver touch to it).
If you visit my Instagram HERE You can find a reel about other great Malachite properties! So, let me know in the comment section what color you would pick salmon or beige!
Have you ever thought about that your energy can block you or uplift you? There is more to us than waking up, having a coffee and get on with our routine….
Breathing deeply and being concious of who we are is essential to our lives and being.
There are little steps that you can take to make it easier, like take a few minutes every morning to reflect, to do breathing exercises and grounding. Show gratitude with a journal. It can be as simple as saying thank you for what you have. It could become your morning ritual.
Work on each Chakra at one time…. Connecting with yourself is a must. If you don’t self-care, who will?
Here is a simple exercise… Give it a go!
You see the image above? It’s the Romanian Sfinx (similar to the Egyptian) this is my to go image when I need peace and quite, or time for me to ground myself or reflet, rethink, etc….
I close my eyes and I’m there. PICK YOUR PERFECT PLACE!
Once there sit down and simply relax and enjoy the moment. Focus on yourself and simply breathe.Add music if that helps and sit still just enjoying the moment you are in.
Start with a few minutes per day and see how you go. You can hold a crystal or simply a selenite piece. I prefer a selenite Wand. If I use a crystal pick what you have or your favourite.
I use the crystal that is needed at the right time. You see after a few minute, all looks great again. You feel refreshed!
Example: if I focus on the Crown Chakra (head), I use a clear quartz. If I work on the 3rd eye, I use an Amethyst, etc….
AND HERE IS THE SELENITE I USE :
You what you have or find a trusted crystal store. If you need any help with finding one, get in touch!
I do have crystals for sale but only for those who I conduct Distance Reiki sessions for. The reason for is simple, I reiki infuse them to specific needs.
Another thi g you can do and it can be a great habit before or after meditation (me time) is to drink crystal infuse water. This is so simple and satisfying. Pick a crystal place it in your tea Infused crystal bottle and enjoy the moon power.
If you need a bottle, simply get in touch. The bottles are custom Infused. Mine is a clear quartz and citrine combo, for focus and happiness with a touch of abundance.
So you see, by taking care of yourself and your energy you can protect yourself.
Tomorrow is 🌕 moon, the perfect time to let go of everything that does not suit your needs anymore. If you need more help letting go or want help getting your energy flowing free again book a Reiki session. I focus only on distance reiki, but you can try in person as well.

Creating healing crystal grids is not only super fun but also very important to me, when working with clients. I always try to make sure that I address their needs, provide a sence of peace, security, originality and boost up the energy levels with the healing Reiki sessions.
Yesterday was an amazing evening with gorgeous energies. Thank you all for letting me tap into your energy.
With each session I align the Chakras as well and use heart shapes for it, just for the extra boost of love.
Every session starts with cleansing and a candle. It sets the mood, brings warmth and the himalayan salt holder sends out the best vibes ever.
Each clients gets a grid made that is unique and perfect for them. I am plugging cords that are not needed anymore or that stagnate energy.
The new moon energy healing sessions are fantastic for it! It’s all about a new start!
Ps :If you missed out on this reiki session, you can book a full moon Reiki healing session!
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.
