      Good Morning!

      Top 10 Crystals for Winter

      Winter is the time for being introspective and meditative. Winter is our time to rest and replenish. Because winter is a time of less light and colder conditions, it can also be a difficult time for many people. Crystals can play a part in brightening our nights, improving our outlook and encouraging us to look within, peacefully. Here are my top 10 choices for Winter.


      Angelite:
      Properties: This stone is excellent at balancing, polarizing and aligning the physical body with the Aura or ethereal network. It is very calming and its shade of blue refreshes the eyes and spirit. This crystal helps us to be in touch with angels and animal guides, as well as assisting in distant communication with other humans. Most effective on the Throat Chakra, Angelite helps in self expression, communication and allows us to speak our mind, helping us to become more assertive. Its soothing effects on the Throat Chakra works beautifully in calming and soothing anxiety or overactive children. Use this stone to call your Angels for guidance and support. Angelite is often used for psychic connection to oneness with the Universe, the angelic realm and for spiritual guidance. Angelite is utilized for heightened sensory awareness, which also makes it great for Astral travel. Angelite helps us to see paths to surmount challenges. It dispels anger, renews connections with Universal knowledge, and reduces the "upstream struggle" during new endeavors.


      Azurite:
      Properties: Referred to as the jewel of wisdom or Stone of Heaven. Azurite symbolizes insight and discovery. It is said to increase psychic abilities. Azurite activates the Brow and Throat Chakra for more assertive communication and alertness. It allows for quite, deep access to the subconscious and as a seeing stone offers access to other times, places and lives. Therefore, it is a great stone to assist in astral travel. This great balancer helps those who talk too much and allows for those who to be expressive when they have a tendency to hold back. This opens our psychic intuition and gets us aquainted with our innerselves. It is a stone that stimulates creativity, giving access to a fountain of ideas, images and awareness of things around us. This is a wonderful stone for decisiveness and decision making.


      Black Onyx:
      Properties: Balances and grounds. Reduces sex drive. Promotes fidelity. Absorbs and flattens emotional intensity. Androgynous. Excellent for centering/aligning total person with higher powers. Banish grief, enhance self control, wise decision-making, encourages happiness and good fortune. Can be used to provide a "peek" into the future, helps one to follow the path alone, promotes personal strength, understand the reality of the moment, become the master of one's own future. Helps with disorders of soft tissue, bone marrow and the feet. Black: Root Chakra. Grounding. Green: Heart Chakra. Yellow: 3rd Seriousness, logic. Blue: 5th Chakra. Found in Italy, US, and in Mexico. The shapes or patterns that Onyx holds inside it have led some to suggest that Onyx has a picture in it that tells a story or carries a lesson. An Onyx will retain memory of the physical occurrences surrounding a person. A strong stone to use in psychometry because it tells the story of the wearer. A strength-giving stone. A good stone for athletes or people under extreme mental and emotional stress. It brings balance to mind or body as well as strength of mind. Good stone for those who are flighty by nature. A strengthening stone that can help you approach a lesson or task with greater self-confidence. Said to be good for the teeth and bones. It is highly recommended that Onyx be used in conjunction with Pearl and Diamond.


      Blue Chalcedony:
      Properties: A type of Quartz that heads a family which includes Agate, Carnelian, Jasper, Tiger's Eye, and Onyx. Found in the US, Sri Lanka, USSR, Mexico and Brazil. Chelcedony helps ease self-doubts, makes one more reflective. It is used to eases bad dreams and problems related to the eye, gall bladder, bones, spleen, blood, and circulatory organs. Cleansing in nature, this stone will promote healing. It needn't be cleaned afterward since it has such strong cleansing qualities of its own. Chelcedony fosters the maternal instinct and is said to assist lactation. Blue is used to open the throat Chakra and helps with communication and self expression.


      Citrine:
      Properties: This stone is very versatile and is used for mental and emotional clarity, problem solving, memory issues, will power, optimism, confidence and self-discipline. It reduces anxiety, fear and depression. Citrine is one of two crystals which never have to be cleansed of negative energy.

Citrine crystals are invigorating and positive. They can surround and fill anyone with its brilliant color, energizing every aspect of life.

          Winter is the time for being introspective and meditative. Winter is our time to

            Good Morning!

            Top 10 Crystals for Winter

            Winter is the time for being introspective and meditative. Winter is our time to
            rest and replenish. Because winter is a time of less light and colder
            conditions, it can also be a difficult time for many people. Crystals can play a
            part in brightening our nights, improving our outlook and encouraging us to look
            within, peacefully. Here are my top 10 choices for Winter.


            Angelite:
            Properties: This stone is excellent at balancing, polarizing and aligning the
            physical body with the Aura or ethereal network. It is very calming and its
            shade of blue refreshes the eyes and spirit. This crystal helps us to be in
            touch with angels and animal guides, as well as assisting in distant
            communication with other humans. Most effective on the Throat Chakra, Angelite
            helps in self expression, communication and allows us to speak our mind, helping
            us to become more assertive. Its soothing effects on the Throat Chakra works
            beautifully in calming and soothing anxiety or overactive children. Use this
            stone to call your Angels for guidance and support. Angelite is often used for
            psychic connection to oneness with the Universe, the angelic realm and for
            spiritual guidance. Angelite is utilized for heightened sensory awareness, which
            also makes it great for Astral travel. Angelite helps us to see paths to
            surmount challenges. It dispels anger, renews connections with Universal
            knowledge, and reduces the "upstream struggle" during new endeavors.


            Azurite:
            Properties: Referred to as the jewel of wisdom or Stone of Heaven. Azurite
            symbolizes insight and discovery. It is said to increase psychic abilities.
            Azurite activates the Brow and Throat Chakra for more assertive communication
            and alertness. It allows for quite, deep access to the subconscious and as a
            seeing stone offers access to other times, places and lives. Therefore, it is a
            great stone to assist in astral travel. This great balancer helps those who talk
            too much and allows for those who to be expressive when they have a tendency to
            hold back. This opens our psychic intuition and gets us aquainted with our
            innerselves. It is a stone that stimulates creativity, giving access to a
            fountain of ideas, images and awareness of things around us. This is a wonderful
            stone for decisiveness and decision making.


            Black Onyx:
            Properties: Balances and grounds. Reduces sex drive. Promotes fidelity. Absorbs
            and flattens emotional intensity. Androgynous. Excellent for centering/aligning
            total person with higher powers. Banish grief, enhance self control, wise
            decision-making, encourages happiness and good fortune. Can be used to provide a
            "peek" into the future, helps one to follow the path alone, promotes personal
            strength, understand the reality of the moment, become the master of one's own
            future. Helps with disorders of soft tissue, bone marrow and the feet. Black:
            Root Chakra. Grounding. Green: Heart Chakra. Yellow: 3rd Seriousness, logic.
            Blue: 5th Chakra. Found in Italy, US, and in Mexico. The shapes or patterns that
            Onyx holds inside it have led some to suggest that Onyx has a picture in it that
            tells a story or carries a lesson. An Onyx will retain memory of the physical
            occurrences surrounding a person. A strong stone to use in psychometry because
            it tells the story of the wearer. A strength-giving stone. A good stone for
            athletes or people under extreme mental and emotional stress. It brings balance
            to mind or body as well as strength of mind. Good stone for those who are
            flighty by nature. A strengthening stone that can help you approach a lesson or
            task with greater self-confidence. Said to be good for the teeth and bones. It
            is highly recommended that Onyx be used in conjunction with Pearl and Diamond.

            cleansing qualities of its own. Chelcedony fosters the maternal instinct and is
            said to assist lactation. Blue is used to open the throat Chakra and helps with
            communication and self expression.

            called the "stone of the Angels" (not to be confused with Angelite) and will
            help one connect with one's guides and enhances your angelic connection. It is
