Hello, we sincerely trust you had a wonderful Christmas and that it brought you all the joy, brightness and wonderment you could handle.

We had a good laugh when we opened our joint present from Sue’s eldest, Colin. He is the least like us and yet he is the one who is most in sink when it comes to presents. He always asks for a list for him to choose from, but this time Sue shortened it. We have been reading ‘The law of Abundance series’, presented by Esther and Jerry Hicks. He was asked if we could have the DVD’s of the same name, except for number one which we already had.

As we started to open our present, its shape and feel was betraying its content and sure enough it was volumes 3, 4 & 5 of the requested DVD’s. Naturally we were very pleased! But it was the attached note that really made us laugh.

“Dear Mum & Ron. Unfortunately I’m not trained in the Law or Attraction, so I could not find episode II. Hopefully you can use the Law to find it.”

I’m sure we will!

In the New Year Sue will be embarking on her study of whole food and how eating these foods can not only keep us vital and healthy but also how they can be used to cure all sorts of maladies, illness and complaints.

I have always maintained that there is a fundamental connection between our food choices and our state of health. In fact I am convinced that the closer we eat like our Great Grandparents ate, the better our health and energy levels will be.

Back in 1964 – 6 I used to get off the train at Redfern station (Sydney) on my way to work and each time I stepped off the train I would be greeted by a large billboard proclaiming on behalf of Tip Top breads “What you eat today – walks and talks tomorrow.” Ever since then this has been one of my life mantras.

If you share these same sentiments and you are curious and you would like to know more, then take a look here –  While you are there you can also get a free mp3 download; Nuggets of Ancient Wisdom, valued at $37.00. I wholly recommend this to you.

Stone of the month.

For all those born in the month of January, your Birthstone is Garnet.

Garnet is very common and plentiful stone and can be found in many areas around the world. It has a trigonal crystal structure, and there are different forms according to its mineral base; Almandine, Andradite, Demantoid, Grossular, Hessonite, Pyrope, Rhodalite, Spessatite, Tsavorite and Uvarovite.  A common misconception is that all Garnets are a red, when actually they come in a wide variety of colours including purple, red, orange, yellow, green, brown and black.

Garnet has been widely known for thousands of years, and it has long been known as The Warriors Stone, carried by soldiers the world over as a talisman against death and injury, but it was also said to bring victory, peace and tranquillity. Many courageous travellers and explorers wore Garnets for protection, as they were considered popular talismans and protective stones.

It is said that Garnet not only holds the power to protect its wearer from negative energies, but to send those negative energies back to where they originated from. Garnet has been used as adornment for thousands of years and is one of the stones in the breastplate of the high priest.

Garnet is also a stone of romantic love and passion and commitment. Metaphysically it is used to enhance sensuality, sexuality and intimacy. It balances the sex drive and alleviates emotional disharmony. Red Garnet in particular stimulates the controlled rise of the Kundalini and aids sexual potency.

An excellent stone for manifestation and it can assist mystically with building your self-confidence as well as success in your chosen profession.  The Garnet is commonly known as the stone for successful business, and is useful in the planning stage of any project.

A Garnet placed under your pillow is said to prevent bad dreams. Wearing Garnet jewellery will help generate popularity amongst your peers, and help alleviate depression. It will also bring constancy to friendships.

Garnet has a strong link with the pituitary gland and can stimulate expanded awareness and past life recall. It will sharpen your perceptions of yourself and others. Garnet helps you let go of old, useless, or obsolete ideas. Will remove inhibitions and taboos and will open the heart and bestow self confidence.

Garnet regenerates the body and treats spinal and cellular disorders. It stimulates the metabolism, purifies and regenerates the blood, heart and lungs, and regenerates DNA. It assists assimilation of vitamins and minerals. It clears negative chakra energy. Both the thyroid and spleen may benefit from cleansing and purifying with Garnet.


A short story or ‘The Case of the itchy skin’

Just before Christmas I got a bit of an itch and a slight rash and like any good healer I said to myself it will go away, my immune system will kick in any time now and voila; just like magic it will be gone. A few days later and it was still there, only worse and more of it in more places.

But like all good healers, I left it alone – sure in the belief my body would shed itself of this bothersome itch. This is just like the story of many good tradespeople and professionals: You know the panel beater with the dented car or the painter whose house needs painting and the accountant who hasn’t got his tax return in yet.

Anyway, Christmas Eve morning and Sue had had enough of my whinging and I had had it with this itching, it was time to take action!

I knew what was needed, a crystal elixir, some tea tree lotion to apply topically and to find a way to keep my hands away from scratching myself. Sue was going to mix up some Bush Flower Essence but decided that as I would be using a crystal elixir, some Emergency Essence for the day would suffice.

The Tea tree oil was selected to be applied topically, for its antibacterial properties in case the rash was bacterially based, plus it helps reduce and ease itchiness.

I thought about what I would need for my elixir and after checking with some of our reference books, I set about making it. I gathered together a large cut glass bowl, along with a glass tumbler and these tumble stones – Rhyolite, for the rash, Azurite and Malachite for the itch, Hematite to soothe the skin and clear quartz to amplify the energy and benefits of the other stones. In addition I charged the Clear quartz with resolving this matter ASAP.

To make the elixir I filled the bowl with pure water and placed the tumbler in the middle of it. The stones were then placed in the tumbler as the Azurite and the Malachite should not be placed directly in the water because their active minerals can be toxic*. This was then placed out in the morning sun. It was collected about midday and then sipped throughout the day.

*It is wiser to use the indirect method rather than just place them in the water, although the amount of copper released from the Malachite for example is probably much less than what leaches from your copper pipes every day.

A few days later as I was making another batch, I was empathising with my clients who run short on patience. I too found the need to remind myself that Crystal Healing really works, especially as the days got hotter and more humid and the sweat exacerbated my problem complaint.

Fortunately as I am writing this account, the itchy rash has regressed. In fact I believed it was gone until it reared its ugly self this morning as I was undertaking some heavy physical work outdoors. Perhaps its a heat rash, (or maybe I’m allergic to heavy work on hot days – a joke) but I can say its only a shadow of its former self and I am sure as I continue my self- treatment it will disappear for good.

I no longer need the lotion and I am sure in a few days it will be clear even if I do nothing more, but I will keep on with the elixir to make sure it is really banged on the head.

Today, a client said it probably would have fixed itself over this period of time. She may be right. But I’m certain it would have been much worse without intervention and I could well be sitting at this keyboard, using it as a major diversion to keep from scratching and would probably be so distracted that I couldn’t concentrate and write this anyway.

If there is a point to this story and it’s not that crystal healing works (albeit slowly sometimes) of this I have no doubt. The point is the earlier you get onto something the quicker you get relief and the sooner it is cured. Also no artificial or chemical products were used or needed to affect my return to normal good health.

Crystal Tips and Techniques.

Improving business: If your business is not doing as good as it should be, just put 3 or more Garnets on your desk or at your workspace and a turnaround or improvement should follow.

A note on cleansing your crystals: Some people recommend placing your crystals in rock salt or salt water for a long time. Before you do this, make sure your crystals will be safe in water and remember that salt can have a devastating effect on the surface of some stones. For example if you leave polished Malachite in salt water for some time it loses its sheen. Salt will also remove the polish from many stones. Remember that Barite, Calcite, Selenite and similar crystals will fall apart or dissolve in water.

We were taught that ocean water, collected on an incoming tide is excellent for cleaning crystals and is a system used by us to this day. However we are very selective in its use, but don’t hesitate to use it with our Clear Quartz crystals.

The proper use of crystals in healing: Some people lay down all sorts of rules and dogma for crystal healing. In truth there are no correct or incorrect methods for using crystals and gemstones, provided you use them with a good heart and the best intentions in mind. And of course that you have done your research – you wouldn’t want to use a stone for your toe to heal your eye.

Good vibrations and all the best,
