Crystal Grids for Peaceful Interactions

“Whether you are setting this grid in your home, office, or backyard, the intention to establish with these gems is peaceful, harmonious, and calm vibrations. The hematite stones will assist in grounding the remaining stones in this grid to establish a strong foundation.

  • CelestiteCelestite of either the cluster or tumbled variety is excellent to focus on during challenging or upsetting conversations. The pastel-blue color of this gemstone brings calm and peaceful conversations when used with that intent. Use celestite to call on the angelic realm to help you find the right words during intense conversations. Celestite can help you to be very present and an active listener so you really hear what is being said.
  • Clear quartz cluster—A quartz cluster is a group of clear quartz points growing on the same matrix or held together as a group of points on a shared foundation. Quartz clusters, including amethyst, citrine, and smoky quartz, are good for establishing a solid, shared foundation on which to build a harmonious community. Such clusters are beneficial for communication and the true understanding of others in a group setting.
  • Hematite—This shiny metallic stone works wonders in shifting negative feelings by calming and relaxing you. It is a grounding stone that helps you focus on that which is important. It is also a perfect stone to help quiet the mind and to reach a nothingness state of consciousness, as the majority of the people often experience frequent, incessant mental chatter. This stone is beneficial to relax the physical body and calm the mind to enable a quiet time for contemplation and connection with the earth.
  • Lapis lazuli—This rock is composed of several minerals, including hauynite, sodalite, noselite, lazurite, calcite, and pyrite. The hauynite causes the blue color, while the calcite is responsible for the white inclusions. The deep blue vibration of lapis lazuli calms feelings of frustration, agitation, and anger. With this stone in hand, you can find ways to deal with the emotional turmoil resulting from physical, mental, or emotional abuse so you can heal and find inner peace. The vibration of this deep blue color offers a sense of protection and helps to rid you or your surroundings of anger and rage.

Aromatherapy and Gemstones for Mindfulness and more

Aromatherapy and Gemstones for Mindfulness and more
By Margaret Ann Lembo

Aromatherapy isn’t just for smelling! Essential oils are powerful allies – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. They contain potent chemical components and have the ability to deter a wide range of bacterial, fungal, viral, and/or other disease-causing microorganisms. Aromatherapy is effective on an energetic level to restore balance. Add a gemstone to help you maintain mindfulness and match your intentions with the aroma. Gemstones and crystals are allies to help you with mindfulness.

Here is a peek into the vibrational level of four essential oils and some gems opening to help you step beyond the ordinary.

Eucalyptus’ medicinal scent is penetrating, peppery, and powerful. With lapiz lazuli or sodalite in hand, inhale eucalyptus and breathe deeply to calm you while you release unhealthy attachments. The deep blue color of these two gems help you to see, sense, feel, and know the truth in any matter. Lapis lazuli opens the third eye and the intuitive senses when used with conscious intent. This is a good stone to help you remember your dreams and promote clarity during dreamtime. Lapis lazuli and sodalite along with other dark blue gemstones improve your concentration and focus and can be used during test-taking to align you with the higher knowledge that is accessible to all.

 

Frankincense brings wisdom and connection with inner peace and calm. Its respiratory gifts open the breathing passages making it a perfect tool for meditation. It helps us to remember that all things are possible. It teams with apophyllite to aid in grasping the connection to the divine. Apophyllite helps you access the Akashic Records. Use it during Reiki sessions to help you stay focused on allowing the Universal Life Force to flow through you. This sparkling gem brings higher levels of clarity to meditation experiences.

Lavender offers sweet transformation. Attraction to this scent signals a time to comfort yourself as you take it into your own hands to do what it takes to make your life happy. The list of therapeutic properties is quite long! Pair lavender’s scent with pink calcite to amplify feelings of safety and comfort. Pink calcite activates loving thoughts. It transforms less ideal mental musings into thoughts of self-love, thereby increasing your ability to love, and receive love from, others. Hold this stone when you are concentrating on thinking positive and uplifting thoughts about yourself and others.

Patchouli is perfect to attract both love and money. Inhale patchouli to help bring focus and promote the action necessary to amplify prosperity and goodwill toward all. Patchouli is a stabilizer and encourages grounded action. Gemstones like green moss agate or Kambamba jasper are beneficial to help you release toxic thoughts and replace them with good thoughts that naturally attract benefic energy. Green moss agate, with its moss-like pattern, helps you to remember to ground yourself. Use Green moss agate when you are experiencing mental fatigue. This stone helps you replenish your mental focus. Use Kambamba to improve your ability to give love and receive love. Its green energy opens your heart to loving yourself and others more fully and completely. It is also a good stone to keep nearby during regression therapy. The stone contains stromatolites, which are among the oldest fossils on earth considered to be over 3 billion years old, which provides it with the energy to help dislodge any stored information that is causing a repetitive pattern in your emotional consciousness.

Enjoy the benefits of pairing gemstones with essential oils to increase well-being and inner peace in your life. Maintain a sense of gratitude in all that you do and you will be blessed in all areas of your life.
