Vesuvianite Crystal Properties

Over the passed months, I have received so many emails about Vesuvianite. I do not know what pop culture phenomenon made this stone so popular suddenly but I am always willing to post a blog about the stone. 

Vesuvianite is grouped with a very specific energy family and I really do not suggest this stone unless you are versed in crystal speak. The main reason is this stone in the top class of attractor stones but it is also classified as a unity stone. This stone will bring you what you truly seek; it can clear the trends, the group mentalities, the fillers… it knows you more than you know yourself. This may not be the path you are ready for just yet. As an advanced stone, always use with great caution. 

This stone appears on every birthplate of individuals born in Spring, but appears closer to the bottom to neutralize the stone. This stone must always have a companion stone but the second stone that is carried with it depends on the holder. A larger group of people will be able to pair the Vesuvianite with Amber, but not everyone. If you are versed in Crystal Grids and Speak you understand this completely. Some will be able to pair with Aquamarine. Remember to always research the system of formation in your crystals to know how they pair or should not pair. 

Vesuvianite is a stone of self awareness and becoming. As said above, this energy system knows you better than you know yourself, but the journey is also very important. Another reason for a neutralizing stone or a seeker stone pairing. 

Associated with the Heart Chakra, and the heart’s desire, Vesuvianite is also important for people who have been emotionally stunted. Unable to show emotion, love, or any type of care. Psychologists treating sociopathic patients would do well to carry Vesuvianite as the stone will be neutralized by the daily association with the patient. Vesuvianite will also keep the psychologist shielded from the unbraiding of the psyche concerning the patient. This stone has a very specific concentration and cleaning. To cleanse this stone, ring a bell around it. This will remove or chase off the negative attached to it.  For charging, any full moonwater, but springtime is the best. Use a soft cloth, lightly soaked and make sure the cloth has been rang out well. Do not submerge into water.   

 I caution the Empath from interacting with this stone. If you are sensitive, this stone may literally break itself against you or break you emotionally. Again, this is an advanced stone therapy and I usually never write about these groupings because I fear the consequences of idle use. So I must stress these warnings over and over. If you are sensitive or empathetic, please there are so many other therapies of crystals. 

There is more about leadership and influence that I wish not to get into because I believe this stone has many misuses that are of concern. 

It is a beautiful stone that has several names due to its variety in location and culture. Its color is like a faded moss and its color therapy radiates the end of a journey. The outcome. The desired destination usually. Not always. 

Vesuvianite’s animal relationship is the serpent but some cultures attribute to the Praying Mantis. Both misunderstood creatures that give peace through chaos. Vesuvianite is sometimes attributed to Eris, a goddess of chaos, and proper concentration is indeed needed. Venus was also given this offering as was Vulcan.

Crystal Speak can sometimes be rather complex but once you understand the ‘key’ the coding is your new first language. I always urge people to read books and stay away from much of the “copy and paste” quick fix website meanings. Thank you for all of the kind requests about this stone. For over 2 decades I have always suggested picking up a copy of “Love is in the Earth” by Melody. It is an excellent book on Crystals. There are many others, follow me on Good Reads for lists. Happy New Week!

Ancestry Heart

The Heart of Ancestry was given to us by amber; a part of the sacred family trees of ancestral knowledge. These Baltic Amber stones were selected because of their high testing of baltic acid content. This content makes Baltic the best for jewelry and most lasting but there is a metaphysical component to Baltic Amber that is much more valued to me than anything else. 

Amber is the “key” to past life recall, whether it be in this life or another. Amber is called upon to heal the past and can connect you with your ancestors. If you are sailing the seas looking for an ancestral guide or to discover the hidden branches on your tree, this stone is your shipmate. 

Amber is one of the two “Living stones” but the only one of those two that is not a gem. I find the older the Amber the better for metaphysical purposes, and this is why I selected these specific babes that are estimated to be around 44 million years old. Alive and living in the sacred trees when the gods walked the land amongst us. I have said many of times, I believe in the scientific explanation of past lives. My DNA has been many people with many experiences. When this experience is done, I am not done, I will live again. We all see many faces in the mirror before we become.

Onyx Metaphysical Properties and Uses

Onyx was my Grandmother’s favorite stone. Black onyx in particular, so this post will be about the black variation. I love the memories of going to look for gems and books with her in Westport when I was younger. There is one specific memory that is somewhat vague except for our conversation. I remember crossing the street with her and going into the little gem shop. The name of the shop was “Ace’s” and they had baskets of pocket stones. One table had a few baskets of onyx variations and I asked her which one should we get. She replied in her best goblin voice, “Black as midnight, black as pitch, blacker than the foulest witch.” 

All onyx is vital, but she loved black the most. Not because it was black really, although she did beam about it matching everything and looking so classy. The truth is she loved its properties more than anything else. She was also a Cancer, meaning that onyx was the top of her birthplate and her main birthstone. It appealed to her on all levels and it was a stone I heard of often. Not to mention a specific beloved onyx ring she had… but that is another story. (Told in past posts)

Onyx not only transforms negativity, it dissolves it. You can program specific onyx to transform this energy into a specific area. Concentrating an onyx means you only work with that one piece for this purpose your whole life. You can use/wear one or many and concentrate one but you cannot concentrate two. When it breaks or leaves you, there will be no other. This is why I do not suggest programming onyx in a piece of jewelry you are attached to (ie. Grandma Veda’s Ring) I suggest using your jewelry to dissolve what is thrown at you and using a handheld palm or skull onyx to program. I am big on pocket skulls for this purpose. (See #EPJCrystalSkullTherapy ) By programming, you can transform stale negativity into energy, strength, stamina, fuel. 

There are long-time false tales spun about onyx being a bad luck stone. This is only true if you try concentrating it without proper education on the subject. Just wearing it is good luck because you are protecting yourself from negative energies. Earth Medicine is the only Medicine of the four universal gifts that does not have a dark side. Any bad luck that could come from consecrating is a projection from yourself and not knowing how to shadow work or exercise the stone. 

Onyx is a memory stone and does hold the memories of the wearer. It should be cleansed often. (See past posts on methods to clearing onyx) If the wearer has experienced trauma while wearing onyx, the stone should be cleansed every new moon. The onyx will help you to banish the darkness that can take hold of you through traumatic memories. As the moon increases, your happiness and well-being increase. As the moon decreases, the trauma releases more and more. This is a concentration of onyx and I have just taught you how to do it. There are over 50 concentrations and each is specific. Onyx can be a powerful ally if you learn to use this Earth Medicine as a guide and power. Even if you only wish it for negative absorption it is THE best of the best. 

Onyx helps you sense the bad intentions of others towards you. If you meet an energy vampire or zombie without your onyx, make sure to wear it after the encounter. Onyx has its way of refilling your cup emotionally.

Remember that right now there is more imitation onyx on the market than not. Many makers know what they are doing and some have good intentions but end up sell stones that they believe to be onyx. Turns out they just didn’t know. A double-check with the maker is always a good thing. If you ever buy vintage onyx, make sure to clear it before wearing it. If it was worn during trauma if will make you feel depressed or drained. Clear it. Onyx is another amazing stone to pass down to the next generation as an heirloom. This will help them learn from mistakes already made in the family and get them to their path quicker with fewer branches in the road. 

I must stress, if your sun sign is cancer, you need this stone.  It is a part of your birth path and it is the main power stone your life calls to. Open yourself up to it and let it guide you. 

If your Patron Goddess is associated with the new moon, open channels with her through onyx. If you are surrounded by negativity in the workplace, at home, or in any setting; this is the stone for you. This stone is the ultimate weapon against the “Frenemy” and in this case, always carry or wear onyx with aventurine. 

I could write 10 more pages on this stone and I cannot believe how much I had to edit due to space here. If you want me to write up a second onyx post with more, please comment below. I appreciate you and am full of Gratitude for reading this post. Happy Week’s End!

The Vedas

The Veda design that dresses the Veda Necklaces, Cuffs, and Rings is a symbolic language to what it’s like to ponder the forevers. We have our loved ones for such a short time and although they leave, they are a part of us in every way. So many pieces of them stay and we see glimpses of them everywhere in our own lives. In a family member’s face, in our own faces, a saying or a way of speaking, and most of all in our very fiber. The DNA that binds us, lives and dies, but does both forever. The 8 sides of this design represent infinity, the ongoing forever connection with our loved ones that have passed. Some times are short and some are longer but time is a changeable fabric. It can be refurbished, it can be dyed, cut down, or added to with thread. These ways are mostly still a secret but some have shown us their magic. The seamstress of time has more secrets than any other. Her thread is the tie that binds. 

Veda was and still is my Maternal Grandmother. She is a part of me and I am a part of her for a continuing infinity.

Lake Of Garnets

Garnet energy is, to me, the most special of the red energies. We all have our favorites, but Garnet speaks to me for so many reasons. When I was a little child my Grandmother told me of the red moon folklore that surrounded Garnet and I learned of ancestors who mined Garnets 200 years ago. Perhaps this is why I am partial. 

Garnet helps with anger and dissolving resentment.  No need to hang on to anything. The rain came and washed it clean. The garnets sing to us in our boats as we survey the flooded lands of our former hatred. 

I have always thought that Garnet served well as a wedding ring. Garnets worn on the left force us to speak and release all the thoughts that float stagnate in our mind’s waters. Clearing them and making the waters flow is life. Movement is life. A constant cycle gives life. When things are stagnate and repetitive; find a garnet to push you through. The only way to the other side is through.

Claddagh Ring Symbolism

I, like many, have always held a special place in my heart for the Claddagh design. The hands symbolize friendship, the heart is a symbol for love, and the crown is a symbol for loyalty. Both wrists are wearing a snake cuff similar to the first snake cuff Evil Pawn Jewelry ever released back in 2007. The snake is a symbol of restraint when coming to things you should say no to. A bad idea, a bad influence, and a person that is not good for you. One hand has a ring on the index finger and the other hand has a ring on her ring finger. A symbolized meaning “May good wealth be with you.” Notice the saying is “good wealth” because too much wealth can make some humans rotten. All the wealth to keep you golden, all the friendship of a true friend’s hands, all the heart of the truest love, and all the crowns of real loyalty. Many Bright Blessings my friends and all of my love to you.

Smoky Quartz Crystal Skull Therapy

Smoky Quartz skulls can help us understand the void or empty that can plaque our heads at times. This is a part of the known Crystal Speak of Smoky Quartz. Being a stone of emotion; able to lift negativity, a path to ground us when the spin of the Earth is heavy, relieve depression, ease stress, and give us an understanding of jealous and dark feelings. The Smoky Quartz Skull is a carry on reminder of ‘keeping our head’ so to speak. A great pocket stone for Empaths who take on other people’s dark emotions from just being around them; the skull shape is not just some sort of hipster fashion. It is of the symbolic language and is never to be taken lightly. When emptiness comes you can even pull your skull out of your pocket and warm him with backwards breath. The warm fog on his head is a symbolic representation of your own head beings warmed by the gods.

Smoky Quartz Spell

Smoky Quartz has many properties that bend slightly to shape, shade, and chemistry; but no matter the reality, the color therapy behind its magic stays true.

A stone to get you out of the void of your head and away from the swirling downward vortex. Depression and heavy stress lift quickly and give way to a floating rise, fading to release. A stone sacred to the Druids and a fixture on the birthplace of Scorpios born in October; a stone of antiquity. Breathing life into the brown leaves that remain from the season passed; giving life to the air of this place and of the mind space.

Orange Aventurine

Have you ever went into a social situation feeling awkward and lessened by your own speak? Have you ever replayed situations that were not red lettered to anyone but your own ghost of conversations past? In this day and age we are wired to criticize ourselves and this judgemental anxiety can cause creative blockages. Self esteem and self respect are empowered by orange color therapy and enhanced by aventurine’s gentle crystal speak. Orange actually scores among the least of favorite colors or chosen colors and it is no coinincidence that psychologically self esteem is the highest among commonly noted issues people battle. Low self worth, self esteem, self criticizing, and judgmental voices can lead to depression and anxiety. We can’t control all of the voices of others but we can try to be more aware of our own. Orange Color Therapy is a staple when times are low. Orange Aventurine reminds me of that desolving bath bomb slowly silencing what doesn’t matter. The things I should have never gave a voice to in the first place.

Symbolism Behind Earring Adornments

To some, earrings are just an adornment; some love them and others do not wear them at all. For me, the Metaphysical life of the earring lives and breathes; never at once sleeping. After all of this time, the energy has not dissipated, but ripples steadfast; almost unused. Not just in pressure points, types of metals, placements of earring points, and stones applied… all are relevant to the the significance of the symbolic language of this old world adornment. 

All that exists is entwined with reason; the birth of symbolic language stands in this place. Gold has its metaphysical gifts but add a stone to the metal and those gifts combine or sometimes cancel out. This is to be seen like any recipe of the culinary arts; it acts the same as adding ingredients. Metals of Gold, Silver, Steel, etc. all have their purpose and we can enhance, substitute, and even remove properties of crystals with metal aids. Placements of stones will also have their additional properties. For instance: wearing tiger’s eye as earrings has a lessoned effect as it would better serve on your arm. Tiger’s Eye is never enhanced by metal unless it is steel. Specific stones prefer the ears; Amber, citrine, and emerald. Some stones like Amethyst and tourmaline do well in many areas of wear but are strongest in the ears. Specific organic materials such as bone are also best metaphysically as earrings. 

The placement is always very important to the symbolic life of the stone and metal used. The Language and direction of adornments are not only one and the same but should always be taken into consideration when wearing jewelry. A stone worn to draw good fortune should be worn on the receiving hand. If worn on the repelling; it will repel the very manifestation you strive to create. 

When discussing earrings here, I am only referring to the standard lobe earring, but remember that different piercing placements on the ear have different effects when it comes to metals and stones. The standard placement I speak of here was believed to keep the memory or memories. That being your “Spiderwick” to grasp memories from another life, someone else’s life, or things you cannot remember in this one. It was  believed to be a helping hand to your next life to remember what you had learned. Like a button or a switch to access a vault of memorable treasures. Another way to enhance past life or ancestral memory is amber earrings. If you wish to hear animal speak and the enhancement of animal guides then bone is the enhancement you seek. Clairvoyance; Quartz, Health of mind; Amethyst, etc. Earrings have such a metaphysical meaning by themselves; similar to the birthplate. The birthplate has 5 main placements for stones that are unique to your birth chart. The Ear is no different. A book could be written on this subject and it could easily be a volume set. Yet it would just be another chapter in the great book of symbolism. I will post more about the symbolism of earrings and the language they speak in the future. I have also dedicated a “Highlight” to this on my Instagram page. Happy Earring Wearing!
