The Best Gemstones for a Happy New Year!

Happiest of new years to you all, my friends!

Mine has gotten off to a good start, I have more beautiful things to list than I have time to work on! Hubby Stephen has been cranking out the simple, elegant “One Drop Gemstone” earrings,  and of course, I had to sneak myself one of each, and I can’t wait to show them to you, probably Sunday, if not this evening.

In the meantime,  if you are looking for a gemstone that hasn’t been listed yet in the Jewelry section of my Etsy Shop,  just send me a message and I’ll list them next.

I’ve added a few new loose gems in my Gems, Crystals and Fossils section, with many more soon to follow. My large size  Enchanted Spell Candle is now 20% off the normal price, so get your love candles before Valentine’s day!

But the purpose of this post, other than shameless self-promotion, is to remind you of some stones that can be hard working partners which will help enhance your creativity, calm, grounding, love and success in 2020. To make your new year it’s best, I here are my recommendations for some of my favorite healing and helpful stone companions:

Citrine:

Healing Properties of Natural Citrine
Spiritual: Natural Citrine has one of the most powerful energies of all crystals. It purifies the energy of everything around it, and is one of the few “self-cleansing crystals” capable of maintaining its own brilliant energy field. Natural Citrine is a potent tool for manifestation, helping us to know our desires and ask the Divine to guide our actions and lead us to success. When the road is difficult, Natural Citrine lends us strength and banishes feelings of heaviness and darkness from our spirit, replacing it with vibrant golden Light. Citrine is attuned to the Solar Plexus Chakra and linked to the astrological signs of Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra. It is connected to the element of Fire and vibrates to the number 6.

CITRINE

 

Emotional: Natural Citrine’s energy is exceptionally joyful and happy, making it one of the most useful stones to use to treat depression and anxiety. Its purifying energy helps protect us from being drained by difficult situations or people. Furthermore, it can help us to set and maintain clear emotional boundaries so that we don’t need to rely on its protection. It helps us to see that it is ok to say “no” and also to be clear about what we WANT rather than merely focused on the minimum we NEED to survive. Natural Citrine encourages us to think and feel clearly about what is necessary for our happiness and to confidently do the work necessary to bring that about. It teaches us that when we do the work, we are properly entitled to enjoy the result.

Natural Citrine’s purifying energy helps us to keep our thoughts clear and clean, so we can make good decisions and put them into action immediately. It helps us to rapidly digest complex information, particularly as related to power, boundaries, and manifestation. Citrine helps us to organize our thoughts into those which serve us, and those which do not, and to quickly discard those that do not. It is particularly helpful for helping us to understand and move past any mental blocks dealing with money. It helps us to let go of feelings of being “undeserving” or the erroneous belief that money is “evil.” Instead, Citrine shows us that money buys marshmallows and builds hospitals, and can therefore be considered a “good thing” worthy of being gathered, saved, spent, and enjoyed.

Physical: Natural Citrine has been used to treat the stomach, spleen and pancreas and is said to promote digestion. It is commonly used by metaphysical healers to speed up metabolism and heal the endocrine system. Natural Citrine is particularly useful for helping us to make the practical lifestyle changes that are necessary after being diagnosed with early diabetes.

 

Apricot Agate:APRICOT AGATE

Spiritual: Apricot Agate has a very nurturing and warm grounding energy which makes us feel safe and loved. It gently releases fear and helps us to understand, or at least make peace with, death and other great unknowns. Apricot Agate helps us to become more spiritually mature and provides us with a deep internal sense of stability and peace. It is useful for self-reflection, contemplation of the world and meditation and can help us have a keener sense of reality. Apricot Agate cleanses the energy of everything that it comes in contact with, leaving us feeling refreshed and accepting of the abundance the universe has to offer us. Apricot Agate is attuned to the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, and Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo. It is connected to the Element of Fire and vibrates to the numbers 5, 6 and 7.

Emotional: Apricot Agate evokes the essence of “home” – a place where we are loved, accepted and very much wanted. It is especially good for promoting love and understanding between parents and children and helps dissolve tension. Apricot Agate helps us to create good relationships especially within our family unit or close friend groups. Apricot Agate reminds us that we all have important gifts to share with others. Moreover, it teaches us that the key to a happy life is to find those people who have the gifts we need and who need the gifts we have. Apricot Agate helps us to let go of anger and bitterness, and if necessary, find the courage to begin anew. Apricot Agate helps us feel safe, but equally important, Apricot Agate encourages us to create and maintain healthy boundaries so that we actually are safe. It is particularly useful for anyone who suffers from codependent relationships. It helps us to explore and understand the difference and healthy progression between dependence, independence, and interdependence.

Mental: Apricot Agate has a very soft and loving energy, but is also very logical, rational, and no-nonsense. It helps us to properly analyze and solve our problems and encourages us to take action. It reminds us that our best chance for making our dreams come true is by working hard, working smart, and working well with others. Apricot Agate helps us to make decisions swiftly and for the best, and to be truly open to change. It is also a wonderful stone for self-analysis since it’s energy is gentle yet also very honest, a combination which can help us to build self-confidence and self-acceptance. Apricot Agate stimulates our creativity and combines it with pragmatic common sense. It helps us to find the pathway forward that will bring us the most joy and serve the Highest Good.

Physical: Apricot Agate is most commonly used by metaphysical healers to treat the eyes and uterus, as well as problems with the bladder/intestines/pancreas/stomach, circulatory system, lymphatic system, and various skin disorders. It is also commonly used to treat physical and emotional wounds caused by abuse or addiction. Apricot Agate is believed to be a general energy booster and is often used to revitalize the physical body or to provide support during detoxes. It has been used to stanch the flow of blood, from cuts as well as heavy menstrual flow. Apricot Agate is also useful for helping bring attention to any physical ailment which is interfering with our well-being and to resolve the matter as swiftly as possible.

 

Blue Lace Agate:BLUE LACE AGATE

This stone will boost your ability to communicate, especially the thoughts and feelings that you receive from your higher self and spirit guides or even angels. This is a soothing and nurturing stone, that will bring you calmness and peace of mind, and helps bring sweet dreams, reducing nightmares or night terrors. An excellent emotional healing stone, Blue Lace Agate energy resonates in the throat chakra bringing tranquility, as it alleviates anger and nervous tension. Blue Lace Agate will help you to clarify your thoughts so that the person you are communicating with will clearly understand your point of view. It will assist you to speak freely and release any feelings associated with the opinions of others. Emotionally it aids you to express your feelings, so it encourages you to let go of old emotions, and retained pain from childhood trauma. It is excellent to help you to release anger that may have been stored in the body from past experiences. If you like using positive affirmations, this crystal helps to amplify the energy. It is great to use if you do any healing using sound, like crystal bowls.

 

 Quartz:CLEAR QUARTZ

Quartz is the most powerful healing stone of the mineral kingdom, able to work on any condition. Clear Quartz is known as the stone of power and amplifies any energy or intention. Clear Quartz protects against negativity, attunes to your higher self, and relieves pain. Laser Quartz Wand crystals focus energy into a concentrated beam, which can be used for precision healing. Caution should be observed when working with Laser Quartz Wands due to the intensity of the energy.

 

 

 

 

Howlite: HOWLITE

Howlite strengthens memory and stimulates a desire for knowledge. It teaches patience and helps to eliminate rage, pain, and stress. A calming stone, Howlite calms communication, facilitates awareness and encourages emotional expression. Howlite balances calcium levels in the body and is very good for teeth, bones and can help end headaches caused by stress or holding too much energy inside, especially after working with magic or psychic energy.

 

 

 

Rose Quartz :ROSE QUARTZ

Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love. It restores trust and harmony in relationships, encouraging unconditional love. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. This stone helps people to love themselves more and helps develop self-esteem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pearl: FRESH WATER PEARLS

As spiritual tokens, pearls are said to assist in calming and centering, as well as nurture your faith, loyalty, integrity and purity. They are also strong symbols of femininity, helping women connect with their “inner goddesses” and obtain the ultimate “feminine energy.” Perhaps most importantly, it is said that pearls have specific frequencies of energy vibrations which can re-balance deficiencies in the human body when they are worn, just like gemstones

Magical Amulets to Wear, Spell Candles to Fire Up Some Magic!

I’ve just created a new batch of Spell Candles and Magical Amulets for sale at Cosmic Delights, here in Madison, Wisconsin, where it is my pleasure to offer Psychic Readings each Saturday from 1 to 6 PM.  My cauldron bubbleth over with creativity this month and magic is in the air!

My Spell Candles are built up slowly, beginning with a pure white core, signifying purity of intent, and then slowly, layer by layer, I add herbs, oils, gemstones and good old fashioned spellwork until each one is complete.

My Magical Amulets are created as wearable magic. Protective and constructive bits of magical energy, enchanted so that they will tune into the needs of the wearer.

Both Spell Candles and Magical Amulets may be created just for you for specific purposes just see Raven at Cosmic Delights, from 1 to 6 PM on Saturdays to place your order, or conact me through this website’s “Contact Me” page.

I currently offer Spell Candles and Magical Amulets in three varieties:

Love and Passion

The Magical Amulets and Spell Candles in this variety are a bright red in color and has many elements of oils, herbs and gemstones making it a powerful tool. My protected recipe for these includes many things. Below are a few of the elements I use.

Rose Quartz, to attract and hold love,to draw positive emotions out both for one’s self and for/from others. Besides those uses for a love Amulet, there are many other benefits provided by this beautiful pink gemstone. Rose Quartz is used to heal ailments of the thymus, heart, and lungs. Rose Quartz is also known to help heal breast cancer and is an excellent support stone for most other types of cancer as well.

 

Catnip is a very old and time honored spell ingredient. Often used to enhance beauty and draw love and affection, this herb and it’s essential oil are very effective when used in magical workings to create and draw love and passion. Interesting to note is that not all cats react to catnip in the typical way, and only about 70% of cats get the “playful crazies” from smelling it. However almost all cats, including some big cats get sleepy and relaxed from eating it!

 

A variety of hot spices and peppers are used in spells to inflame passion and make physical love more rewarding.  I choose to use the most proven ones, including Cayenne, Chili peppers and a few other secret ingredients to achieve the most potent results! Another little known effect of using hot peppers in spellwork is their ability to inspire a person to action and almost jolt one into forward action, often helping people to break laziness and a tendency to inactivity.

Money and Success

The Magical Amulets and Spell Candles in this variety are a rich green in color, signifying the wealth and prosperity they draw to the user. While success and healing are also part of it’s magic, this powerful tool can be a omen of great change for the user and also contains many different oils, herbs and gemstones adding to it’s power. Below are only a tiny bit of all that  I use in creating these Magical Amulets and candles.

Cash. Cold, hard currency! To enhance the magic in my money, prosperity and success spellwork, I use actual bits of American Money, legally obtained, and only in small, un-spendable bits, but these bits carry energy and are very powerful in their representation and, when combined in this kind of spell, very good at drawing to the user, more of the same!

 

Malachite attracts wealth and success. It also provides powerful protection, inspires imagination and creativity, which can help one find greater success! So often has Malachite been used by the wealthy and successful, it should be no surprise that Cleopatra used ground up paste of Malachite as eye shadow under her eyes, thereby flaunting her wealth and success! I do not recommend that use however, as powered Malachite is toxic! Fear not, faceted and polished gems are harmless.

 

Pine. Elements of many parts of this tree are combined in my prosperity spells. Pine needle oil, bits of cone and bark are used, too. Pine is helpful in attracting prosperity, purifying and helping one to stay on track and focused, which can help clear the way to success both materially and otherwise! Pine cones and wands ward off evil influences. Also of note – pine is said to increase fertility and help one to enjoy a active and vigorous old age!

 

 

Peace and Protection

This variety of Magical Amulets and Spell Candles are a deep purple color, signifying spiritual serenity, and safe, shielded protection.  Peace is the first job of this amulet or candle but this is a vibrant collection of ingredients that have been used for a long time for elimination of bad energy, chaos and for protection of the user.  While many of the ingredients are a close help secret, I’ve listed below a few  of the components that  I use in creating these Magical Amulets and Spell Candles.

Linden. This tree also known as Basswood or Lime-Tree is often associated with the Tree of Life. Linden wood exemplifies the power of attraction not only for love and harmony, but also strong protection. My Peace and Protection Magical Amulets and Spell Candles use the essential oil for enhancing Good Fortune, ending Sleep Disorders, bringing calm to the user.  The wood is added for protection. On a spiritual level, Linden can help relieve grief as well.

 

Patchouli Plant is one of my favorite herbs for protection and banishing of negative energy and entities. Spelling of the rich earth, this plant is reinforcing of one’s own personal power and helps add to the strength of all the other components in my Peace and Protection candles or amulets.  Interestingly, Patchouli is often substituted or graveyard dust in spells when that element is unavailable.  Other uses for Patchouli include money drawing, and passion spells. Bonus!

 

One of the most important and multi purpose elements of my Peace and Protection products is Amethyst. It is one of the most calming and reassuring gems, and is great for emotional problems and helps prevent worrying overmuch. Known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and enhance meditative state, its inherent high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments. Amethyst also helps break the negative cycle of addictive behaviors.

 

How to use Spell Candles and Magical Amulets

The main thing to remember when using any magical tool, like Magical Amulets and Spell Candles is to respect the magic. Always be mindful of the fact that your intent is the most powerful part of any magical undertaking, so keep your focus and intent directed toward your goal.

Spell Candles

When using my Spell Candles, it is of the utmost importance that you focus first on what you hope to achieve and visualize the desired result clearly before you begin. To begin, find a place that is going to be undisturbed for a while, and a flame proof base to put your Spell Candle on. Seated comfortably with the candle in front of you, light it and spend at least 5 minutes watching the flame, trying yo see within it’s depths that which you desire. If your belief system supports it, you may want to ask your deity or the Universe to help you find the result you wish for. Always being mindful of your purpose will help make your efforts successful.  Do not ever leave your Spell Candle unattended, and keep out of reach of children and pets. Monitor your candle as it burns down, trimming the oil, wax and herb crust from the edges each time you burn it, as these can fall into the flame if not kept trimmed and they are flammable.

Magical Amulets

Magical Amulets are very simple in their use. When I create them, they are purposed to serve the person who wears them, so putting it on is all that is needed to make the magic happen. To enhance their effect, a good idea is to hold the amulet in your left hand while meditation on the most important thing you wish to receive from use of the amulet. That simple! Take care to treat them gently. Although the glass bottles are durable, and the cork is epoxied in place after I fill them, they are breakable if dropped on a hard surface or take a hard impact.

Use for Positive purposes only!

Use with only highest and best intent, never negative or dark purpose. My products area all be spelled so that negative or dark use negates their spellwork and power. Used for good though, they can be an extremely powerful tool and can work with you to help make your life better!

I hope that this answers questions about Spell Candles and Magical Amulets, and that they bring to you all the good and positive energy you put into their use!

Blessed Be!
