Crystal Healing – Amethyst/Latex-free Mask

This is a time when no one wants to go to the doctor’s office and I, especially, don’t want to add more medication to my body. More and more people are telling me they are trying something preventative and they are getting relief from long standing physical problems. It is wonderful to hear!

AMETHYST

AMETHYST is one of my favorite crystals. It can be light or dark purple or anything between. I have an amethyst heart that brings me only good vibes. It is known for its spirituality and contentment. It was one of my first stones, a gift, and from it I have received the feeling of calmness when I am stressed, which these days is frequently with the corona virus threat and the disturbing nightly news. If there is anything helping me through these trying times, it is crystals. It also helps me in the face of grief, also in my thoughts at the tremendous loss of life from the virus..

Amethyst is also known for helping physical ills. It is said to heal problems with the nervous system, insomnia, and even give you peaceful dreams when placed under your pillow at night. It is said to protect against blood disorders, mild depression, and addictions from drugs or alcohol. It is even said to help with acne.

I believe, in the short time I have been using crystals, I have been helped from several different stones, especially with insomnia, with arthritis, just to name a few. This is a time when no one wants to go to the doctor’s office and I, especially, don’t want to add  more medication to my body. More and more people are telling me they are trying something preventative and they are getting relief from long standing physical problems. It is wonderful to hear!

CRYSTAL HEALING: CHALCEDONY / LATEX FREE MASKS

A great crystal with many uses and latex free masks.

                          CRYSTAL HEALING: CHALCEDONY

The information on various crystals is an education in itself. That’s why it is better to learn what you can about these beautiful stones before setting too many goals of healing for yourself.

So…we started with chalcedony (accent on the second syllable) because it is common and often included in packets of four crystals due to it’s versatility. It comes in white, grayish, pink, red and blue. It is considered a nurturing stone that is said to promote brotherhood and harmony. As for it’s healing properties it is said  to heal  the eyes, gallbladder, bones, spleen, and blood circulation.

It has also been said to reduce the effects of dementia and senility. Here is a surprising note. Public speakers are to apply the crystal to the tip of the tongue before speaking!

Chalcedony comes in several distinct colors and each seem to have special uses.

BLUE  is said to improve memory, enhance the immune system, aid  the lymph system, blood pressure, inflammation, and aid  the lungs in clearing the effects of  smoking. (I know several past smokers who are still feeling the effects of that habit!)

PINK For inner peace and helps the heart, lymph and immune system.

RED  for aid in circulation, but is said it should not be used for long periods of time because it  may inhibit the absorption of nutrients.

CRYSTAL HEALING/ LATEX FREE MASKS

I have experienced the wonder of crystals. Latex free masks!

                        CRYSTAL HEALING / LATEX FREE MASKS

I still get very excited when I see family and friends getting relief from physical ills….and I am one of them!

It’s been several months since my daughters and I have become firm believers in the power of the CRYSTALS. Just this morning I spoke to someone who was experiencing a full night’s sleep. For anyone who isn’t able to do that, like I was for years, it is truly a marvel.

Just another result came to me this morning, when my daughter told she had an awful case of nausea during the night and, in desperation, reached for some crystals. After about a half hour with the stones on her belly, she felt them get very hot and her nausea was gone. The crystals were aventurine and rose quartz. She kept them with her during the night and had no more problems.

Another friend had been suffering such arthritis pain in his ankle, along with swelling, that he could hardly walk. Then he was able to do strenuous yard work for a full day with no pain or swelling, That in itself seems like a miracle, but even more so since he’s been sleeping a full night. It’s all attributed to petrified wood.

Another man reduces stress by rubbing ametrine. It works!

CRYSTAL MOON PARTY

That one blissful moment stayed with me long after.

                                   CRYSTAL MOON CEREMONY

If you’re into crystals you probably know about the MOON CEREMONY. If not, I will  tell you briefly.  it is a time  to re-energize your crystal by exposing them to the full moon.

The ceremony is  held for only women and its starts with a fire, or lighted candle, and women wearing dresses. In matriarchal tribes  the women were   the hub of the wheel, making the tribe continue  to thrive, even when the men went to war. Stories about these practices are found in a book by Jamie Sams. It is described as a time for women to open their hearts and to trust and love one another.

I never expected it to be so moving. My daughter and I sat on our front porch  and did what the ‘paper’ said  to do. When we finished we drank the water, energized by the moon and she helped me into the house, and went back to the porch to collect the crystals, etc. It was then she saw the glowing sonar light near my chair. It hadn’t been lit before and never worked for over two years. The only reason she hadn’t thrown it out was because of the  butterfly picture on it. When she came back inside she confided that she had the same pressure in her chest on other occasions when she felt a ‘Presence.’ We were sure it was her Dad, my loving husband, whose death rocked my world. My natural inclination was to think the moon and the crystals gave it a spark of energy. Yet I couldn’t quite wrap my head around the peaceful, unworldly moments when I felt the inner glow of something else.

CRYSTAL HEALING: ARTHRITIS

Any relief from arthritis pain is a big plus.

                                CRYSTAL HEALING : ARTHRITIS

It is recorded that arthritis has affected people’s lives as long  ago as ancient Egypt. It seems that almost everything can be traced back to that time! If there’s one thing we know for sure, arthritis gets most of us and not always in old age.

My arthritic problems dance around my body, but one way with a vengeance, is my shoulder pain. In my quest to learn about healing crystals I heard about how petrified wood was helping reduce arthritic pain. I guess word of mouth is really one of our best advertisements. Of course, I was willing to give it a try. You will be able to find the petrified wood at the crystal sites. My daughter made two little cloth bags of it and she pins one to each shoulder each day. Here I should state that I had constant pain for weeks or longer. It seemed relentless, even with my favorite liniment.

I’m convinced there is really no cure for arthritis, but I had a pleasant surprise several days after I started using the ‘old wood.’  My daily pain completely disappeared after several days of wearing the ‘corsages.’ Now the only ‘milder’ pain I experience is during the night when I turn over in bed. I was almost speechless. (and believe me, that rarely  happens!)  Once or twice I forget about my ‘corsages’ and the pain returns but not quite  as severely.

I have a friend who first told me of the relief from back pain she had suffered by using the petrified wood. I felt  indebted to her for putting me on the  right track. Arthritic pain is no joke. Having tried several drugs with no relief, this seemed like a safer method, compared to all the side effects medicine offers.

YOUTUBE LATEX FREE FACE MASKS

                             YOU TUBE LATEX FREE FACE MASKS

In this trying time we need all the help we can get to stay safe.  A YouTube site I had previously mentioned as giving  great tips on sewing  quilts, reusable paper towel substitutes etc.  offers a latex free mask, which even the approved masks are not.

This woman has come up with face masks that would   give you some protection within your family or at the grocery store when medical masks are unavailable. These masks are not CDC approved, but when they start telling that you can feel safer with a bandana or scarf across your face, these masks are probably safer. They are a good grade of cotton material that has been doubled. In addition these masks are latex free, which even the surgical masks are not. She is not selling  the masks, but simply showing  how to make them. Check them out!

CR7STAL HEALING : CORONAVIRUS ANXIETY

Try to control your anxiety before it becomes a physical problem.

CRYSTAL HEALING : CORONAVIRUS ANXIETY

We are all in a stage of personal crisis. Who is going to get it next, who, in my family is going to be stricken? The unanswerable questions continue. There is a state of panic in our country.  Just try to buy toilet  paper if you don’t think so!

We try to keep our cool, but it is on everyone’s mind. Unfortunately, there is no crystal healer for the virus, but crystals will greatly relieve some of our stress and keep us functioning  with a clear head and a steady hand.

Though I am fairly new to crystals, I have already found that some of the stones make me feel calm, no doubt about it. As a result,I began research into what else they could do for us.

Some of them can help us with nightmares and insomnia. Many are high on the list of their influences, such as  stress and anxiety.

Two that are on my ‘no doubt about it’ list are amethyst and opal. Since the most potent crystal is quartz, I feel I must add that one.

Others I have found in several crystal related books are:

Apophyllite, a healing stone for stress relief.

Black calcite, for stress relief

Iron pyrite, also useful in lung problems

Kunzite stimulates the immune system

Calmine amethyst  and opal

Green adventurine and rose quartz work well together.

Bloodstone, Smokey quartz and Yellow jasper.

These are just a few with anxiety and related heath issues.. Combinations of certain crystals work well together and are actually sold in groups.

If you are having serious stress over this virus, and the damage It is costing you in time and money, you are not alone. Try to relieve some of the stress you are feeling  Long  periods of stress and anxiety can cause physical ills.

CRYSTAL HEALING AND INSOMNIA

A good night’s sleep will give you a more productive day.

                       CRYSTAL HEALING AND INSOMNIA

I used to be a solid night sleeper and at the time I didn’t realize how lucky I was. Then a turn of events kept me from falling asleep until the wee hours of  the morning. For a few weeks the repetitive practice of Zentangle helped me fall asleep more quickly but even that didn’t  last.

Several weeks ago a friend told me of the solution to her insomnia and since I was just starting to learn about crystals I gave it a try.

The solution to my friend’s problem was fairly simple. In fact it seemed  too simple to work, but work it did and I have had restful nights of sleep ever since the first night I  tried it.

My friend told me to put a blood stone crystal in a glass of water near the head of my bed. I did just that. In the morning when I got up I was amazed that I had slept through the night, falling asleep within minutes of getting into bed. I was able to get up for my usual bathroom calling, but I immediately slept afterwards. Weeks later I am still getting a good nights sleep. Believe me, I am still amazed, but thankful. I hope this will help someone else.

CRYSTAL HEALING AND LATEX ALLERGY

Latex allergies are becoming more prevalent.

                   CRYSTAL HEALING AND LATEX ALLERGY

About nine months ago my daughter had a sore big toe. So what, you say? Well the red flag went up and we were all very concerned. She is diabetic, but in addition to that, she also has a very severe latex allergy which she acquired while working as an R.N. in the Intensive Care Unit at the local hospital. The climax of her allergy resulted in her having anaphylactic reactions three times in two days, to the point she nearly died. That came from years of using latex gloves and equipment, and culminated after having eaten a lunch in the cafeteria that was prepared with rubber gloves. That happened some twenty years ago.

At the time she and her husband thoroughly researched what foods were safe for her to eat and where she could go. That research is still going on today. Unfortunately, she is on a very limited diet and her home is the only safe place to be. You might say she is a prisoner in her own home. She has been absent from her kids graduations and weddings, from her father’s and husband’s funerals.

Back to the problem of the painful, throbbing, infected toe. The total care she received was the few antibiotics she could take and a home visit from the local doctor on a few occasions.

The toe grew steadily worse, going from an infected draining area on the bottom of her toe to a second area on the top of her toe, which was now at least three times its normal size. It involved daily soaks and debriding the dead skin around the infected area. About a month ago the bottom had finally closed but the area in the top had smelly drainage and it looked as though she could lose her toenail. Her latex allergy prevented her from being able to get help at any hospital, have any x-ray. or any wound treatment because No one could offer her safe treatment because they were not latex free.  One foot doctor finally came to see her and said he would be back in about a week and he would be looking into portable x-ray and would, at that time, take a wound culture.  We’re still waiting on any of that. Our questions about any potential surgery hung  in the air, and the possibility of gangrene lingered.

My oldest daughter  began looking into crystal healing as a last resort. She found some interesting methods, largely poo-pooed by traditional medicine. Feeling there was nothing to lose, and already used to doing her own research, my affected daughter saw information about a crystal described as an infection healer, specifically for the foot, so she ordered an African Jade, which incidentally arrived in the shape of a small foot. She began taping the stone on top of her other bandage. What transpired seemed a miracle. In one month her top wound  had closed,  the drainage gone, and the size of her toe, was nearly normal. After nine months of hopeless suffering!

We are so grateful, so thankful, that there was an alternative to traditional medicine. But one problem still exists. That is the need for treatment, testing, even surgery where it may be needed. Latex allergy is increasing. Recently we heard of a three year old who was affected. There are other people in the medical profession who live with the condition, besides there are countless others.

The latex companies left out a necessary washing step when universal precautions started around the AIDS epidemic. They realized there were more latex allergies because of the change in procedure because it left more loose protein molecules on the gloves. When they realized this, they went to the federal government who gave the glove companies immunity, which meant they did not have to take any responsibility. They continued their practice without the washing step. Since then there are over 15 million people in the USA with varying forms of this allergy. The CDC has called latex, the asbestos of the 90’s. When will the government stop turning their backs on a real need in this country?

Not one of us would want to live as my daughter has for over 20 years, missing out on all the important functions and things we consider normal.
