Why Crystals Heal & Which Ones To Use for Chakra Balancing

Written by

Laying gemstones on the body for healing purposes has been practiced across numerous cultures for thousands of years.  But why?  What could a seemingly inert stone possibly do that could benefit the body?

The answer lies in a scientific phenomenon called the piezoelectric effect.  To avoid getting into too much technical jargon, you can best understand the piezoelectric effect by considering a quartz watch.  When slightly bent, a small piece of quartz puts out a constant voltage that keeps a watch running with phenomenal accuracy.

Crystals and gemstones do the same for us.  They put out a small, charge that interacts with our biomagnetic field and creates more harmony and balance.

Every stone has a unique vibration, just as every person does.  For this reason, the particular stones needed for balancing the chakras will vary somewhat from person to person.  For this reason, you see a lot of different suggestions across various chakra books.

The best way to determine if a particular gemstone is good for you or for a specific chakra is to “test” it by placing it on your body and checking in with your body’s subtle (or sometimes, not-so-subtle) response.

chakra stones You may even want to have a friend place different stones on your body while your eyes are closed, and determine which ones feel the best on each chakra.

Always trust your body’s response.  If a stone feels bad on the body, remove it – unless you recognize that “bad” feeling as a clearing, and feel an instinctive desire to stay with the stone.

A very simple, but generally good rule for chakra balancing is that if a stone is the color of the chakra, it’s good for boosting and balancing that chakra.  Hence, the first chakra stones tend to be red-toned, the second chakra stones orange-toned, and so on. Certain stones, like quartz, come in many different hues and can be used for all of the chakras depending on its shade.

When picking which gemstones to use for each chakra, secondary colors should be considered.  Two common ones are: black for the root chakra and pink for the heart chakra.

This does not mean that every stone that heals a particular chakra will be the primary or secondary color of that chakra.  There are exceptions. Still, there is so much correspondence between the gemstones’ color and the chakras they balance, that it is a great “rule of thumb” – especially for anyone who doesn’t know a lot about rocks.

If you wish to experiment with some gemstones to see which ones feel right for you, here is a list of some and the chakras with which they are associated:

First Chakra – Muladhara – Root




Red Jasper

Black or Red Onyx





Smoky Quartz

Second Chakra – Svadisthana – Sacral




Tiger Iron (also 1st)



Sunstone (also 3rd)

Third Chakra – Manipura – Solar Plexus


Tiger Eye




Ametrine (also 6th & 7th)


Fourth Chakra – Anahata – Heart



Rose Quartz






Fifth Chakra – Visuddha – Throat


Blue Agate


Blue Topaz






Sixth Chakra – Ajna – Brow (3rd Eye)



Lapis Lazuli



Seventh Chakra – Sahasrara – Crown

Amethyst (also 6th)

Clear Quartz

New Moon in Aquarius and Pisces – The Dissolution of Reality


19th February 2015

By Simon Vorster

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Yes, the title of the article is correct. This is quite an interesting New Moon formation. The New Moon falls on 29 degrees Aquarius, however the formation then trickles over into Pisces, really setting the theme for this lunar cycle.

Since the start of 2015 we have been experiencing an incredibly heightened sense of energy flowing through our collective consciousness. The energetic vibration on the planet at this time is reaching a new peak; our journey along the river has reached the ocean. This dual New Moon formation between Aquarius and Pisces reflects a period of vast polarity and change. During this cycle, so much energy and forward momentum will be unleashed that unless you are ready to ride the wave, you will likely find yourself lost in chaos, searching for dry land.

This month’s new moon message comes with two very clear paths. Are you in total alignment, or out of alignment?

Happy Birthday Pisces! May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.

The Neptune/Pisces Archetype (Universal Life Force)

Before we look at the planetary alignments for this New Moon, it will be beneficial to first understand the nature of the Pisces/Neptune archetype.

The archetype of Neptune/Pisces reflects the totality of creation; the universe. The whole universe can be described as the Neptune archetype. It is the manifested and the un-manifested — all that is and all that can be imagined. It is the unified field of consciousness.

From our human perceptive Neptune/Pisces reflects the totality of our collective unconscious. You know that feeling you have on Friday when everyone is collectively feeling the weekend experience? It is a shared experience by millions around the globe. Unity, oneness.

The Pisces/Neptune archetype is rooted in the process of creation itself. It represents the total experience of birthing something, and its culmination from source. The return to the ocean, the return to earth. The completion of a cycle. So, at a soul level, Neptune/Pisces is linked strongly with this is the gradual journey of aligning the soul with its spiritual truth. When we are faced with circumstances that are out of our control, we learn the ultimate lesson of surrender. Through that experience we re-align our subjective egos to the knowledge of a higher power; the source of creation.

I am sure many of you have been it situations in your lives where experience has been out of your control, and the words you say to yourself include things like “it’s now in god’s hands” or “we have to just pray it all works out”. This language, conditioned into our society’s vocabulary, recognizes something far more powerful than the human condition but at the same time, induces a sense of helplessness and separation from that power. A deep painful truth here is that this sense of being overwhelmed can lead to states in which we detach and create illusions that serve and protect our inner reality by helping us “escape” from the reality of our experience. Numb the pain.

The purpose of the Neptune energy really is to support our state of spiritual integration; to bring awareness of the spiritual nature along with the physical, and unify the unconscious and conscious experience. At present, Neptune is actually moving through its natural sign of Pisces – one reason why we are all resonating so much with this spiritual awakening.

Planetary Alignments for this New Moon

Saturn in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces

This ongoing square is playing a major role as it reflects the deep psychological issues and collective pain we are collectively healing, created by belief systems that promote idealised external gods, cause mass alienation and teach of separation from source. This is an important cycle for us all. We are being asked here to see beyond the veils of deception and be very clear about what the nature of reality is really about. With that, the deceptions that authority figures propagate are becoming more and more apparent.

Personally I believe that this cycle brings with it incredible rewards as we collectively strengthen our knowledge of our true essence and thereby our connection to source. This is a time where you have to find your own personal connection to the higher self and begin integrating that inspiration into your life that leads to the fulfilment of direct knowledge and experience. This cycle is also deeply effecting the way we see reality and is slowly bringing about huge change. As these outer planets (and the energetic cycles they reflect) move relatively slowly, we have to be patient.

Jupiter in Leo Quincunx Pluto in Capricorn and Chiron in Pisces, and Trine Uranus in Aries

This alignment reflects to us the process of deconstruction and subsequent healing we are experiencing on earth right now, as alignment weaves through the collective consciousness, bringing to life the beautiful tapestry of source energy that is unfolding for us. This alignment is also a direct reflections of our karmic story.

As this alignment reflects in its connections to the Modal axis of the Moon, many souls on Earth at the moment are a part of two realities. This energetic push toward transformation really makes our individual reality go one of two ways — we are either experiencing the unfolding of madness in the world as we break away from the past and discover a new paradigm, or alternatively, we are experiencing the unrest and destruction of a collapsing civilization. We can either surrender to the process of deconstruction and healing, or fight it. Either way the underlying truth is being experienced; an ending of what has been.

On the deepest level this alignment is highlighting and giving us the opportunity to choose our perspective and experience of the way an entire era of Earth’s history culminates. We can either experience it as victims of an impending “end of the world” scenario and “pray to god” it will work out, or we can feel the revival of our personal sovereignty and actively walk the path of personal empowerment. This is a chance to cleanse the wounds of the past and leave behind 6,000 years of spiritual disempowerment. It is time to reclaim your right to be alive, to follow your dreams, and shine your inner light to the world. The world is waiting on your brilliance. Will you be a part of the change? What are you going to do to make tomorrow better, today? Only you know what to do.

Mars and Venus in Pisces

Both Mars (free will) and Venus (relationship to self and others) have been trudging through the swampy vibration that is Pisces energy. Mars has been moving slightly ahead of Venus and has been setting off all sorts of issues relating to hypersensitivity, feelings of absolute chaos, disorder and lack of direction, while Venus, tagging along in Mars’ wake, has been triggering off the feeling of brain fog, creating a spacey void were everything merges into one.

Although it has caused quite a stir for us, this particular movement of Mars and Venus through Pisces is actually very important for the direction humanity is heading into now. As April draws near, a new dawn relative to our collective consciousness will begin. A fresh and clear perspective will be available for all of us. We will experience the culmination of this phase of Mars and Venus in April, and when that comes about, we will be ready and revived waiting to take on life and follow our sense of destiny with the excitement and enthusiasm akin to a child waiting to open its presents on Christmas day.

Mercury Direct

The winged messenger Mercury moved into direct motion on the 11th of February. This marked the end of a significant retrograde cycle for Mercury. In synchronicity with Mars and Venus, as mentioned above, Mercury Retrograde brought up old karmic wounds that needed our very detailed attention. Now that Mercury is in direct motion again, he will revisit those scenarios with us again and give us the opportunity to react to them in a way that is self-empowering. Pay close attention to this opportunity as much healing is available for us here.

The New Moon’s Message

As the Sun and Moon connect to form a beautiful New Moon, the Universe and all its beauty will reflect to you one of the most amazing and inspirational months. This is the point in our collective evolution where the crest of the wave is about to start returning back to the ocean. The sheer force and power that will be flowing through us will be immense. Another way to describe the feeling is like the moment before a roller coaster sends you down the steep drop. The feelings of raw excitement, anticipation and chaos. The shear rush of adrenaline when the ride finally drops. Pure ecstasy.

Although, along with this adventurous journey comes the need for courage. That rush of our new reality can make us doubtful, if we allow it. Find the inner Lion and roar with great strength from this place of ecstasy and inspiration.

During the last couple of weeks we experienced Mars and Venus move through Pisces as mentioned above. This alignment brought up very powerful and deep aspects of our collective psyche that reflect spiritual disempowerment; feeling overpowered and victimised by life. This is an incredibly important part of our awakening that needs to be healed – awareness being the first step in this healing process. In our programmed “Matrix” culture we are constantly shown our disempowerment; constantly reminded of the absence of love; constantly shown that only certain people experience prosperity. We are lead along paths of deception that make us believe that this madness is inherent to our very humanity (original sin), and that we will only be saved from the madness by some external saviour. The last statement is the most disempowering of them all.

In contrast, the Pisces archetype reminds us that we are our own gods, each and every one of us. That we each belong to a collective consciousness that unifies everything. That the source of creation is the only thing, therefore everything that is a part of it is source itself, experiencing itself through you. Step back allow you vision to transcend the 3D and observe yourself as the multidimensional being that you are. Embrace your essence and allow a sense of sovereignty to guide your personal re-empowerment. Free yourself from the shackles of personal self-doubt and the effects of fear based propaganda. Decondition yourself and find the perfect harmony available with the Source.

Lastly, as the Sun moves through Pisces it will bring about the completion and ending of an entire cycle. That which began in April last year is closing. The zodiac has finished its year’s passage and is ready to dissolve the fabric of reality and begin preparing for a new chapter in our collective human experience. One that, I know, many of you are truly excited to begin.

Many can feel something big is on the horizon, and this month will reflect back for us the process of finding the ultimate meaning. The metamorphosis of our individual and collective consciousness is here. Our consciousness is ready to move from the chrysalis of its previous existence to emerge as a mesmerising butterfly ready to bless the world with its enchanting essence.

All the events this month will continue to unfold in one of two ways as the fabric of reality dissolves and dissipates. We can either be aligned with the process and merge with it, or we can hold on to the dissolving reality and feel the crisis and fear creep in. How we experience this polarity is up to us. What we have here is an opportunity to begin in April, as the new cycle in Aries begins, with a fresh sense of vitality and new direction.

New Moon Mantra

I have left behind so many layers of who I thought I was, and what I thought I knew. I have removed so much to find so much – my source. I have become a world citizen, unified yet unique, connected to the Earth and the Universe. I have learned to find flow and to allow life to guide me… to just be.

But now… I am feeling restless. Like there must be something more than this. Like something big is about to happen. I feel that it is just around the corner… urging me on. I know I must first let go… I am ready… to lose myself… to dive into the abyss.

Life in the 5th Dimension fr/Jim Self

The Way of Life in the Fifth Dimension

In the previous article What ARE the 3rd and 4th Dimensions? we compared the third and fourth dimensions. In this article we bring in the fifth dimension. Let’s briefly review the structures of the third and fourth dimensions.

The third dimension operates with a specific set of rules and has certain characteristics, aspects, boundaries, edges, mutations and structures. We see three main structures sustaining this dimension.

Rigid Structures of the Third Dimension

1.  Duality – A dual mode of perception: right-wrong, positive-negative, good-bad, should-shouldn’t, up-down, black-white.

2.  Linear Time – The perception that time only moves in a straight line (one direction) and is experienced as past, present and future.

3.  Rational Mind – The GPS of the third dimension. The analytical, reasoning thought processor designed to make comparisons, draw conclusions, store information, calculate, and make determinations.

Flexible Structures of the Fourth Dimension

1.  Now Time – This is your point of power. Each now moment is a threshold to new beginnings and fresh choices.

2.  Choice – The power to consciously choose to initiate something else in any moment.

3.  Paradox – Contradictory truths. Something that was true a moment ago but may not be rue in the next now moment.

4.  Alignment/Balance – A state of equilibrium which neutralizes opposing forces.

In the Fifth Dimension, 3-D “Reaction’ and 4-D ‘Responsive’ Give Way to Integration

Reintegration – When you attain fifth-dimensional consciousness you experience the reintegration with your Higher Self. This reconnection with the higher parts of you brings higher awareness and allow you to know yourself at the Soul level. You begin to Be who you came here to be. Your innate spiritual abilities increase and reveal themselves. These include clairvoyance, telepathy and abstract intuition.

Access the Wisdom You Know – Life in the fifth-dimension is stunning because you are fully conscious again. You are aware of and can access the wisdom and information available within your Being that resides in all the dimensions. There is no separation. You are one with the All and All is you.

Experience Higher, Lighter Energy – In 5D, you vibrate in feelings like reverence, beauty and kindness. The coat you choose to wear each day bears no resemblance to what you typically walk around waring in 3D. And much of what you experience is no longer expressed from the mind or in words (intellect/brain) but pours forth from the heart and the feelings (the senses recombine forming a sixth sense). You achieve a quiet knowingness.

Higher Mind – In this level of living, when the mental and emotional bodies merge, the union activates the Higher Mind and you operate from the mind of your Soul. You begin to know what the Soul knows and make Soul-guided choices.

Simultaneous Time – Living in 5D, you move into Simultaneous Time which allows you to see the broader perspective of All That Is. All the Answers to your questions lie exactly where the question is asked and you are able to view all possibilities before taking action.

So, why did we choose to leave this wonderful place where all is known and go to the third dimension, anyway? When Creator wanted to know Himself/Herself better He/She asked for volunteers, and guess who ran to the front of the line say “Pick me, pick me!”? You did! Creator sent the brightest and the best (you) on this special quest to explore the outermost regions of existence. It was, and is, a grand adventure that only the biggest and most enthusiastic spirits signed up for.

Why did we choose the third dimension and not another? Duality does not exist in the higher dimensions and duality is an important part of what we wanted to experience. Our explorations took us may places but as we went deeper into density we eventually found ourselves playing in the slower vibrations of the world of form )matter). Here we could delve into cause and effect and discover the results of our choices and actions. Here we had free will to explore the most divergent ranges of frequencies (including fear, hate, anger, betrayal, etc).  When we signed up for this adventure we did not know that we would become immersed in it or that we would forget who we are, where we came form, why we came, and how to get back Home. We now have an opportunity to remember who we are and return Home.

The Long-awaited “Shift of the Ages” is Upon Us

We have taken the third-dimensional adventure as far as we can. We have been wildly successful at what we set out to accomplish and explore in this diverse, dense, duality. A huge vibrational up-shift (on very level) is what the Earth and her inhabitants are undergoing right now. You are significant, not insignificant. You make a difference and your contribution is valued by all of humanity and by All That Is. Welcome the change to a new way of life, dear friends, for together we have begun the process of bringing Heaven to Earth.

Planets & Pyramids

Three Planets above Egyptians Pyramids on December 3, 2012?


Tonight for December 3, 2012

Here’s the exact configuration of the planets Mercury, Venus and Saturn on the morning of December 3, 2012, as seen from the site of the Giza pyramids in Egypt.

Venus, Saturn and Mercury are all in the predawn sky in early December 2012, but not exactly in the way that a widely circulated image on the Internet shows them. Instead, on December 3, 2012, they’ll look like the chart at right, as seen from the site of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. Will Mercury, Venus and Saturn be close together in the predawn sky in early December? Yes. Does this configuration happen only every 2,737 years? Well, we’re not sure what’s meant by that. The planets appear near each other all the time – constantly – as seen from Earth’s vantage point, as they and we orbit the sun. Mercury, Venus and Saturn were together in the sky last in 2005.

Will Mercury, Venus and Saturn appear as this photo shows, over the Egyptian pyramids? No. Not sure how this planet-pyramid story started circulating, but it’s possible someone noticed (or searched for) a true sky event in December 2012 (peak month of 2012 doomsday hype) and then manufactured the false images below. The images were made before the event happened, so we know the images below are photoshopped illustrations.

THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN ON DECEMBER 3, 2012. The image is an exaggeration of a true, and common, sky event.

Here’s another version of the photoshopped illustration, showing three planets above pyramids at Giza on December 3, 2012. This image, too, is an exaggeration of a common sky event.

What’s happening with the planets Venus, Mercury and Saturn in December 2012? Nothing unusual. Venus is shining before dawn. It has been shining before dawn since June 2012. Remember the cool Venus transit in early June 2012? That’s when Venus crossed from the evening to the morning sky. As the innermost planet, Mercury always appears either before dawn or after sunset. It shifts from place to place half a dozen times each earthly year. So if Venus is up before dawn, Mercury is bound to be near it at times. Saturn, too, returns to the predawn sky at least once every year. Why? Because Earth orbits the sun once a year. So our own motion in orbit places Saturn on a yearly cycle in our sky.

What’s cool about what’s happening on December 3, 2012 is that these three planets will be equidistant from each other. Will they be exactly above three Egyptian pyramids as shown in the illustrations above? No. But someone standing in just the right spot near these pyramids should be able to get the planets to appear above the pyramids in a picturesque way. For sure, if you stand in a particular spot near the pyramids – facing them, and facing the eastern sky before dawn – you should be able to see the planets and the pyramids together. That would be a nice thing to see! If anyone gets a photo of this, please drop us a note via the Contact button at the top of this page, or post it directly to EarthSky’s Facebook page.

Here’s the real thing. Mercury, Venus and Saturn as seen December 2, 2012 over Oslofjord, an inlet in southeast Norway, by EarthSky Facebook friend Jann Peter Normann. Thank you, Jann Peter! We know you can see Venus. Look closely for Mercury (lower left) and Saturn (upper right). View larger.

What’s puzzling about this Mercury-Venus-Saturn-pyramid story is that there was a much better display of two planets earlier this year. In March 2012, the two brightest planets – Venus and Jupiter – had a dazzling conjunction in the evening sky. Someone standing in just the right spot in March could have captured a great photo of Venus and Jupiter above the pyramids of Giza. So why did the perpetrators of the photoshopped images above choose Mercury-Venus-Saturn instead to portray, instead of Venus and Jupiter? Not sure. Venus and Jupiter were much more spectacular than Mercury-Venus-Saturn will be!

Why do these planets appear in a line in the predawn sky right now? The planets in our solar system all orbit the sun in a nearly flat plane. So – whenever we see planets near each other in our sky – they always appear in a graceful line across our sky. This line across our sky is the same one traveled by the sun in the course of a day. It’s the same path traveled by the moon. Why? Because most objects in our solar system orbit in this flat plane of the solar system. Of course, this pathway across our sky has a special name. It’s called the ecliptic. Read more about the ecliptic here.

These widely circulating images of Mercury, Venus and Saturn above the Egyptian pyramids reminds us of the false image of India at the 2012 Diwali festival. People love to take real events or images and manufacture something exaggerated from them. Why? We don’t know.

The moon will sweep past the planets in the morning sky beginning around December 10, 2012. That will be cool to see!

By the morning of December 11, the moon will be closer to Venus. Catch the planets and moon on these mornings! They’ll be much more beautiful than any image of them can convey.

The good news for skywatchers is that Saturn and Venus are now making it easy for us to find Mercury, which, as the innermost planet of the solar system, moves from place to place in the sky so often that you might be likely to miss it. To see these planets, find an unobstructed eastern horizon and get up about 90 minutes before sunrise. Look low in the eastern sky for dazzling Venus, the brightest star-like light in the morning sky. Saturn shines a short hop above Venus and Mercury a short hop below. A line from Saturn through Venus points out Mercury’s place on or near the horizon. If you can’t see Mercury with the eye alone, try binoculars.

It rarely gets any easier than this for seeing Mercury in the Northern Hemisphere. Mercury reaches its greatest elongation west of the sun on Tuesday, December 4. That means this often hard-to-see world is climbing above the southeast horizon a maximum time before sunrise. Given a level and unobstructed horizon, Mercury rises about one and three-quarter hours before the sun at mid-northern latitudes, and about an hour before sunup at middle latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere.

Rising times of the sun and morning planets in your sky

Mercury shines as brilliantly as a first-magnitude star. The innermost planet isn’t hard to see because it’s dim. It’s because – as seen from Earth – this world stays perpetually close to the sun, so it’s often lost in the twilight glare. But with Mercury swinging to its farthest point west of the sun, before sunrise tomorrow is about as good as it gets for catching Mercury in the morning sky.

No, that’s not the moon! It’s Mercury, the innermost and smallest planet of the solar system. Image via Messenger

Our chart at top shows the sky scene for about one hour before sunrise at North American mid-northern latitudes. But it’d be better to get up sooner if you can, using Saturn and Venus to catch this elusive world just as darkness gives way to dawn. Look first for Venus and then Saturn up above. If you don’t see Mercury on line with Saturn and Venus, wait a little while as Mercury may still be below the horizon.

December 2012 guide to the five visible planets

Don’t fret if you miss Mercury tomorrow. Keep using Saturn and Venus to locate Mercury near the horizon, for the innermost planet will reign as a morning “star” for another two to three weeks!

Bottom line: Will Venus, Saturn and Mercury appear above Egyptian pyramids in early December 2012, as a widely circulated image on the Internet suggests? Well, it’s true they’re all together in the eastern, predawn sky. That’s a fairly common event. But the images being circulated – showing them above the pyramids – are an exaggeration of a true sky event. The good news: these planets will be beautiful in early December! If you watch the night sky on a regular basis, you know it conveys a profound beauty and order every day of the year. And if you’re lucky enough to observe them from the Egyptian pyramids, hey, we envy you!


February 5-11

This week you can find yourself facing many conflicts most of them brought about by the juxtaposition of the old and the new.  What to keep, what to let go of.  What defines you, what confines you. Never an easy thing.  This can lead to conflict, uncertainty, and anger.  Take time when these kinds of feelings arise to analyzer and follow them to their source.,  There is much to be learned. Lessons are always best when they are over, but this is a week of transitions, so things will not be completed at this time.  But pay attention to what s gong on and new revelations in regards to old friend, new friends, places, and things.  The energetic shifts that are coming about at this time are requiring your cooperation and acknowledgement. Be alert, aware, and observant.  Also, your intuition is very strong at this time.  You will do well to be aware of it.  If you are unsure about what is coming to you, take time to go within and listen to the guidance of your heart.  Be open to what your body is wanting at this time.  The physicality is shifting too.

On a larger scale, there are some painful things that have to be learned right now.  These lessons can come in all areas including the political arena, finances, science, and international relations.  Much of this will go unreported in the news within this country.  If you are desirous of finding out about some of these things, you will need to look to the news in other countries.  The Earth continues its shifts and changes, and there will be a greater  impact of some of these movements this week.  The Sun will have some erratic periods as the Galactic energy moves out of the shadow of the outer planets and closer to the middle of our solar system.  This can lead to some odd science news as they report anomalies, however these things are just new to this era and had a history in the very remote past.

Sunday, February 5:    Light Purple

Everything seems fine to start with, however there is a nagging sense of …. something.  You cannot quite put your finger on it, but you know it is there.  You will find yourself looking around at people and things to find a cause or someone to pin it on, but it will all come back to yourself,  Since this is the case, it is best to take some time to ground and go within.  Look and feel what is going on inside of you.  There is a shift in the energies that is happening now and you are responding.  Take time to know what is going on and be open to any messages you might receive, some perhaps in the form of synchronicity or deja vu.  You can find your answers if you just allow yourself to do so.

Crystal Vibe:    Barite Rose—-This stone brings together many elements and influences in such a way that things can be changes and augmented.  Resonates with the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Monday, February 6:    Dark Blue

There are things in the works, actually things that have been in the works for a long time now, and they are ready to burst into fruition.  Be ready for that.  Some of them can surprise you, so be on the alert for today anything can happen.  People are coming up to you with messages, judgments, and reminiscences.  It is not important for you to respond, just acknowledge.  There are so many emotions and feelings that can be tied up in some of these things that it best to step back, observe, and let them be what they are.  There is a bit of joy unfolding throughout the day, and you will become aware of it as night falls.

Crystal Vibration:    Mangangocalcite—-The energies of this pink stone can bring comfort, solace, and connection.  If you are needing a safe vibration in which to open to the larger whole, this can be helpful. Resonates with the Heart Chakra.

Tuesday, February 7:    Light Periwinkle

The veils are very, very thin today, so things can pop into and out of view quickly.  Just accept that this is the way the energy is tending right now.  Acknowledge that this is the way things are right now, and that sometimes things just are the way they are.  Be ready for some hard questions today as people come up with stuff, a lot of it their own, which they are trying to understand, and, if that is not possible, to redirect to others.  Stay in control of your emotions today.  Becoming angry or upset will not assist in gaining the perspective you are needing to make it through the day.

Crystal Energy:    Leopardskin Jasper—-The energy of this stone reflects both the light and dark vibrations.  It assists in looking for balance and objectivity.  Resonates with the Heart and Tenth Chakras.

Wednesday, February 8:    Light Green

Feelings and physicality issues are going to be very much in the forefront today.  This does not mean that you will be feeling sad and bad, rather you will be more aware of how you are reacting to things on both and emotional and physical level.  Take time to notice how you are responding.  You can learn a lot about the shifts and changes that you are going through at this time.  You can also learn about the new WHO that you are becoming. You are refining and honing many of your core impulses and wisdom.  Listen to the counsel of your heart’s knowing and you can learn much.

Crystal Energy:    Heliodor—-This stone works on the level of one’s purpose.  It can bring focus and light to specific areas of importance.  It assists in protecting one from negativity.  Resonates with the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Thursday, February 9:    Primary Blue

The theme today is Back to Basics.  It is time to see things for what they truly are, what is the basis for the stuff on top, what makes you tick, what makes others tick.  Take time in dealings with others to see what the essential motivations are.  Listen to the words unspoken.  Be aware of the Freudian Slips and reflex moves. There is much to be learned today, and much to be unlearned.  There are revelations that can come forth today.  Some will be new and others are things you already know, but the ones that are truly unexpected can leave you dumbfounded.  Stay centered and true to yourself.  Some of the things you encounter in the day’s energy can bring strong emotional responses.  You will want to be ready.

Friday, February 10:     Light Magenta

You might wake up today feeling as if you want to sing or dance or something like that, but at the same time, you feel that you might have a headache coming on or… something.  The day statrs with an up energy that is, nonetheless, somewhat conflicted.  As the day progrewses, you can find yourself a bit distracted.  You may be focused on one task, and then all of a sudden, your attention shifts to something else.  It will be hard to stay with just one thing, but actually that will all be to your advantage in the evening when many things come up, and you get them all

Crystal Vibe:    Staurolite—-The energy of this stone protects you, while at the same time allowing you to stand up for your core beliefs.  Resonates with the Root Chakra.

Saturday, February 11:    Clear

There is something about the energy of this day that you will not quite be able to put your finger on, but you know that is is good.  There will be a number of synchronicities coming your way, and it is your task to put them together and see what is the meaning behind all these things.  People are willing to be helpful; so, if you need help or are looking for information, this is a good day for requesting assistance in these areas.  Be aware also of a close friend or relative who will be needing your care due to come kind of physical issue.  It is important to be strong in the energy of the day.  It shifts, twists, and turns, and in your grounding within your heart center, you can navigate those vagaries and emerge in the evening with a new knowledge.

Crystal Frequency:    Azulicite—-The energy of this stone works with the body’s meridians for cleansing and unification.  It resonates with the Root Chakra with a vibration that penetrates through all the Chakras.

Stonehenge Theories


Stonehenge Theories

By DAN FLETCHER Friday, Mar. 20, 2009


Roger Ressmeyer / Corbis
For a set of craggy rocks in an English field, Stonehenge’s ability to capture the imagination is impressive. The ancient monument — composed of massive stones arranged into concentric circles by unknown builders — is referenced almost as far back the Norman Conquest, when an English historian remarked in 1130 A.D. that “no one can conceive how such great stones have been so raised aloft, or why they were built here.” That certainly hasn’t kept many from trying. It seems like everyone has a theory for why the ruins were constructed. Some are more plausible than others.

Eye Compass?

21 June 2011 Last updated at 11:35 ET

Fruit fly scanning electron micrographThe cryptochrome protein comes in more than one type – and the human one can perform as the fly’s

A light-sensitive protein in the human eye has been shown to act as a “compass” in a magnetic field, when it is present in flies’ eyes.

The study in Nature Communications showed that without their natural “magnetoreception” protein, the flies did not respond to a magnetic field – but replacing the protein with the human version restored the ability.

Despite much controversy, no conclusive evidence exists that humans can sense the Earth’s magnetic field, and the find may revive interest in the idea.

Although humans, like migratory birds, are known to have cryptochrome in their eyes, the idea of human magnetoreception has remained largely unexplored since pioneering experiments by Robin Baker of the University of Manchester in the 1980s.

INTO THE LIGHT: Shamans (from left) Hamilton Souther, Julio Gerena Pinedo, and Alberto Torres Davila preside over an ayahuasca ceremony in the Peruvian Amazon. Drawn by the prospect of life-changing visions, visitors come from around the world to take part.
For centuries, Amazonian shamans have used ayahuasca as a window into the soul. The sacrament, they claim, can cure any illness. The author joins in this ancient ritual and finds the worlds within more terrifying—and enlightening—than ever imagined.

I will never forget what it was like. The overwhelming misery. The certainty of never-ending suffering. No one to help you, no way to escape. Everywhere I looked: darkness so thick that the idea of light seemed inconceivable.
