Boost Your Mood and Your Decor
April 9, 2017
After more days than I care to count of dreary and dark days, the sun finally came out! And instantly I found myself in a much better mood. The healing power of sunshine is simply unbeatable.
As the sunshine of spring lifts our moods and brings the outside back to life, I want to share with you my current obsession with natural crystals and stones that can have this same uplifting quality. Kelli is responsible for my new addiction as she has always been attracted to their natural beauty and, while we are at market buying for the home store, we are always on the hunt for stones to bring back to the store.
Crystals are a wonderful accessory for any home and are known to have a positive impact on the energy in any interior space where you spend an abundant amount of time. Natural beauties that are decorative and offer us different sources of energy such as healing, protection and attraction. Love that!
Just last week, I was shooting a picture of one of my favorites and doing a little research about the stone. I loved what I discovered.
This lovely naturally shaped heart baby blue Celestite is said to be full of divine energy. Often known to offer its owner a sense of peace and perhaps a better connection to the angelic realm and guardian angels. Heck, I don't know if it actually can enhance my connection with angels but I can tell you that I love the idea of it and the stone always brings a smile to my face. That is energy that I want more of!
The beautiful purple of the Amethyst is enough to impress me but I also discovered that it is known to be a powerful and protective stone. It is said to have strong healing and cleansing powers, all while enhancing spiritual awareness. I definitely like the idea that this amazing decorative accessory also promotes the love of the divine, encourages selflessness and wisdom.
Quartz stones are among my favorite. We have everything from extra large species to small petite selections. Regardless of the size, Quartz is said to be the most powerful and healing stone of them all as it absorbs, stores, regulates and releases good energy throughout the home.
The cluster itself radiates energy all around it making it especially useful for cleansing rooms of negative energy.
We have a few Quartz clusters in the store that have one large long formation with a bunch of smaller crystals surrounding it. Well, that has special meaning. The long formation is said to attract wealth and an abundant life. In your home (or office) it is supposed to be positioned in the farthest left position to the front door. Bring on the abundance.
A freeform Quartz crystal is one that is naturally polished and beautifully reflective. It truly does have an air of wonder and mystery to it and its power is to dispel negativity all around us. Makes you wonder if you should keep one of these guys in your purse and set it out in front of you wherever you go!
Zeolite is a pretty crystal that can often be found in pale colors of peach. It is also one of the core stones used in the practice of Reiki Healing. This particular one is thought to aid in bringing harmony to our life and enhancing a better response to healing.
I think this is a very cool stone (especially since I learned its' meaning) and is also known as the "Dragonstone." This stone is said to be very grounding and can assist in communicating better with others and aids in being heard and understood. Wowza. We could all use more of that!
Pyrite is often called “Fool’s Gold,” though there is nothing foolish about this mineral. As an Earth element, it has fire energy and can actually be sparked to life by striking it against metal or another stone. It symbolizes the warmth and lasting presence of the sun. It is a stone of action, vitality and it will bring the confidence and persistence to carry the things that are important to you through to completion. Let's all get one!
These beautiful formations are sometimes called liquid light. Selenite wand crystals are said to help us to bring light down from the higher realms into our physical body and help create a personal transformation.
How beautiful are these in their natural environment? Their translucent white has an ethereal quality described as inhabiting the place between light and matter.
We will be heading to market in the next couple of weeks and we will be sure to bring more of these natural beauties home to K. Renee. They make lovely gifts for just about anyone including yourself...boosting both your mood and your decor.
In the meantime, soak up the sun and enjoy all the natural wonders that continue to reveal themselves each and every day.
