The first step should always be to clean and clear clutter. If you clear the energy but still have piles of junk lying around the energy will soon coagulate. In order to make changes happen in your life, you must provide an environment that invites change. You must clear out the old in order to make room for the new. Stagnant energy is similar to dust in that it seems to collect in corners, so be sure that the smoke, sprays, light or whatever you are using gets into the corners. Plants, especially broad leaf ones, absorb negative energy, the more plants you have around the cleaner the energy will be,placing plants in corners will keep the energy moving instead of stagnating. Open windows and allow fresh air to circulate. A dish of Rock Salt in a room or a pinch in each corner will absorb negative energy. Wind Chimes, waterfalls, and crystals placed in corners and other specific areas of a room will keep the chi flowing, fresh flowers will lift the atmosphere of any room.

For a very powerful house cleaning purchase Frankincense and Myrrh incense and a special charcoal to burn it on. This charcoal has a shallow indentation to hold the Frankincense and Myrrh (both in resin form). Place the Frankincense and Myrrh in the indentation, light it and wait for the smoke to billow softly. In a state of sacred intention, walk from room to room carrying a fireproof plate with the burning items on it. As the smoke comes up and out of its container, gently push it towards all parts of the rooms. Allow the smoke to cleanse and balance each room. This will balance and cleanse your personal energy field as well.

A simple yet very effective way to cleanse your home is through the use of Rose Water. Roses are associated with Feminine Energy and the Goddess, thus bringing a calming, sweet energy to your home. Place a few drops of a high quality Rose oil (the higher the quality the higher the vibration) in a spray bottle of purified water and say a blessing over it. Walk through the house spraying the holy water and cleansing the energy. Mist your own energy field as well. This is very refreshing and easy to do.

CHAKRAS and the seven-year cycles

Yoga teaching links the seven major chakras to the seven year time periods. They commence as might be imagined at birth in the Base Chakra and work successively through each of the chakras. Thus there are 49 years (7*7) of unique experiences, each year coloured by a particular chakra. In our 50th year we begin a new seven year cycle, starting again at the Base chakra- but at a higher frequency of energy. This gives us another type of life experience as we begin the next seven-year cycle.

About Crystal Healing

A method of healing with the use of crystals placed on or around the body is called Crystal Healing. Since the earliest times, crystals have been used to heal and restore balance. They help in releasing and clearing negative energy, thereby assisting in energy healing. The earliest records of crystal healing have been traced in Ancient Egypt. India’s Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese medicine also claim healing with the use of crystals, dating back to 5000 years ago.

What are Crystals?

Crystals are nature’s gift to man that augment healing. Crystals are found in all shapes, sizes, colours and composition. Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. They owe their unique qualities to their mineral content, their inherent geometry and the colour frequency they emit.

Crystals and the Human Body

The human body has a complex electromagnetic system, also known as a vibrational energy system. Nature has created crystals to be perfect electromagnetic conductors, capable of interacting with our electromagnetic system. Crystals have been found to carry vibration that activates certain energy centers within our electromagnetic system, thus having a positive effect on our entire body systems.

Crystals and Chakras 

Chakras are the spinning wheels of conscious energy. There are 7 major chakras and 50 minor chakras.Chakras absorb the life energy or Prana. Thus any blockage or disruption in the flow of this natural energy affects a person on all 3 levels – physical, mental and spiritual.
Prana has Healing qualities. As more prana or life force is absorbed by the body through the chakras it keeps a person balanced and healthy.

In Crystal Healing, crystals must be placed on the chakra points. Crystals of various colours help in the healing process by creating certain tranquil emotions and altering the state of mind. The colours of the crystals are associated with the various chakra centers in the body. Each chakra has a colour and if crystals of the same colour are placed on the associated center, it affects that area of the body. When crystals are placed at corresponding chakra point, they cleanse and energise the chakra. This helps in healing and harmonizing energy.

Effects of Crystal Therapy

Crystal therapy aims to restore the balance and well being of a person. In this therapy assorted stones are placed on or around the body that resonate with chakras of the body. This helps to release impending blockages, refining the flow of energy. The recipient is able to experience a deep state of tranquility, letting go of attitudes and habits that are not beneficial, assisting in tuning ourselves to the rhythm of life. Crystals work on the subtle energy levels and in our auras to rebalance energies and improve our well-being. This therapy promotes peace and tranquility and reduces mental and nervous stress.

Use of Crystals

Crystals and Minerals have been used to facilitate healing and spiritual growth. Crystals can be placed on the specific points of the body to bring relief or can be swept over the body. Crystals can also be carried or one can wear them. Crystals must always be cleansed before use as they can carry negative vibrations too. They can be cleansed by running water over them. Alternatively, they can be placed in the sunlight or moonlight. Moonlight is a powerful cleanser. Vibrations of a pure sound like that of a bell or gong can also energetically cleanse a crystal.
