  • Best Healing Crystals

    Screen Shot 2017-11-24 at 3.56.00 PM

    Crystals are a tool which work with your energy field to absorb, focus and direct energies. People put crystals in interesting places, but they work well when placed around the home, depending on what they do. One example: on your nightstand. When placed close to your bed, you can feel a crystal's energy while you sleep. Another great location is behind your computer at work. It's best to keep them in spots where you're around them for a substantial amount of the day.

    When starting out, it's hard to know which crystals to use for healing. We tend to gravitate to the beautiful crystals without consideration for their healing properties. Although it is a good idea to purchase crystals that speak to you (and figure out why they speak to you), here are the 10 best crystals to keep around your home or office.

    Amethyst – It is said to aid creative thinking and spiritual awareness. It is also a protective stone and thought to reduce nightmares. It is also believed to release tension and its purple color makes it the perfect stone for the crown and brow chakras.

    Aventurine – A stone of optimism and zest for life. It can help you take everything in stride. It is also a stone of ‘good luck’. Its green color makes it a wonderful heart chakra crystal.

    Carnelian – This crystal brings an influx of life force into the body and is a powerful aid to those who wish to build confidence and courage within themselves. Its orange color makes it an excellent sacral crystal.

    Citrine – A beautiful ‘feel good’ crystal. It can help banish negativity and deep gloom and inspire enthusiasm and feelings of self-confidence. It is also called the ‘merchants stone’ and placing it in the wealth corner* of your home is said to invite abundance. Citrine’s yellow color matches the solar plexus chakra.

    Clear Quartz – This is the master healing crystal. It strengthens and stabilizes the body’s energy field and promotes harmony. It's clear color includes all the colors of the rainbow so matches all of the chakras, but especially the crown.

    Fluorite – This crystal is said to help absorb new ideas and bringing order to chaos. It also cleanses the aura. Containing purple, green and clear colors, Fluorite’s energy often matches the crown and heart chakras.

    Hematite – The most effective stone for grounding yourself in the here and now. It helps dissolve negativity and enables you to learn from your mistakes. A great stone for the base chakra.

    Red Jasper – This crystal may help enhance stamina. It is believed to strengthen the link between the base chakra and the Earth and help to stabilize your energy if you keep it with you.

    Rose Quartz – This pink crystal is the stone of unconditional love – for yourself, loved ones and everything in the Universe. Reawakening trust and faith in all that surrounds us, Rose Quartz is the perfect crystal for the heart chakra.

    Sodalite – A stone of insight. It is said to enhance mental powers of analysis and intuition. Its blue color makes it a great stone for the throat chakra allowing you to speak your own truth.

    To learn more about all these crystals, visit the store, or join us for our monthly Let's Get Stoned class. It's a gemstone exploration where you can learn from crystal experts and get hands-on help in finding the stones that are right for you. Blessings~

    *Wealth Corner: This is the most well-known feng shui money area; it is located in the Southeast bagua area of your home or office (if you are using the Classical feng shui bagua) or in the upper left area (if you are using the Western/BTB bagua).

  • What is Laser Wand?

    Screen Shot 2017-11-13 at 1.56.29 PMThis past Saturday, we had our monthly Let’s Get Stoned gemstone exploration. Our guest presenter was Bob McCumber of Enigma Minerals. He focused the workshop on Angel Wing Amphibole, Giraffe Laser Wand Quartz, and Greenland minerals including Nuummit, Chrysolite and Preselli. Bob is the premier expert on crystal gemstones and rocks, bridging the gap between these two worlds with his no-nonsense approach. His gemstone exploration is based on authentic local identification. One of the most interesting crystals of the evening was the laser wand quartz. We had many questions about this particular crystal.

    What is a Laser Wand crystal?

    A Laser is a naturally formed long slender crystal that tapers towards its termination. It is a healing crystal that will not only focus Universal Life Force on the primary illness, but will channel some power to unseen secondary problems, curing them before they manifest themselves.

    Laser wands are used during meditations to help with communication between one's higher self and for directing and pinpointing energy effectively. The small termination on the end of a laser wand helps to focus its energy extremely well.

    There are those that use laser wands for clearing an area of negative or unwanted energy and top create protective barriers against energies or entities that are unwelcome. They are useful in "beaming" healing energy to any recipient including one's self.

    To learn more, or hold one in person, stop by the store. One of our experts will help you in learning more and finding the crystal that is right for you and your desires. Better yet, come to the next Let's Get Stoned workshop! We hold them monthly, and you can pre-register by clicking this link: bit.ly/LetsGetStoned.

    Our Saturday, December 2, 2017 workshop will bring guest presenter Serendipty. Serendipty was the former manager of Earth-Love Gallery and we are happy to bring her extensive crystal and gemstone knowledge to our customers! We hope you'll join us from 7:00-9:00pm at the store. Blessings~

  • Does a Crystal's Shape have Meaning?

    Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 10.41.26 AM

    At For Heaven's Sake, we are obsessed with crystals. To be surrounded by them every day, and to have the opportunity to help customers select their crystals, is a blessing. While helping customers, we are often asked if the shapes of the crystals possess meaning, and we're happy to report that they do, and in this Blog post we will answer that question. 

    Crystals are normally classified into seven basic crystal shapes:

    1. Rounded crystals are ideal for every purpose as it offers endless flow of energies.

    2. Pointed crystals used mainly for directing energies. You can draw positive healing energies towards you by pointing the crystals inwards towards you. Vice versa, you can shield yourself against pain and negativity by pointing the crystals outwards.

    3. Oval shaped crystals attract love and fertility. It also brings abundance and happiness to families and releases or emits healing powers slowly.

    4. Square or Rectangular cut crystals are used to promote stability and support in workplace or at homes; they absorb harm and negative energies. If you are using them for protection, it is a must to cleanse and recharge them regularly.

    5. Wand-Like crystals offers long-term success and prosperity. It is also commonly used to protect against ill-wishers.

    6. Spherical crystals help to energize and purify any room or work space. It also helps to attract prosperity luck, health and joy in your life.

    7. Pyramidal crystals are natural transmitters of healing and psychic powers which not only helps to calm the soul but also brings harmony in your life.

    Understanding a crystal's shape is just the first step. If you are interested in learning more, For Heaven's Sake offers a monthly class, Let's Get Stoned, with different guest speakers every month. The idea of Let’s Get Stoned has nothing to do with marijuana and instead references the natural ‘high’ we get from working with rocks and minerals - sacred gems that hold great potential! These precious gifts of the earth are prime for clearing and balancing ourselves and others and can be used as catalysts for our expansion and growth. A variety of stones easily become a mainstay for seekers and healers because they are easy to learn about and powerful in their application.

    If you're interested in learning more about gemstones and their meanings, please join us. We will play in a magical room of stones and we'll soak in awesome energy!

    Let's Get Stoned is held the second Saturday of every month at For Heaven's Sake Bookstore, from 7:00-9:00pm. Next meeting: November 11th with guest speaker Bob McCumber.

  • What is a Mala?

    Mala A beautiful Calming Mala created by Peacock Arts.

    Mala’s are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, or the repetitions of a buddha's name.  This practice is known in Sanskrit as japa. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads. In Tibetan Buddhism, malas of 108 beads are used. From our friend Ky Gabriel at Peacock Arts, "It is said that 108 times is the ideal number to take the prayer from a head space into an embodied heart space and when using a Mala there is no need to count, you can let the beads do it for you!"

    The increasing popularity of Yoga has made Malas fashionable. With strands of 108 beads plus a "guru" bead traditionally used for meditation and prayer, designers are making mala necklaces now that combine gemstones imbued with potent energies and sacred meaning to infuse your practice. However, most Malas are worn around the wrist. When looking at a Mala, notice the knots in between the beads. These knots represent our thoughts in meditation. The knots stop the beads from touching each other, just like our thoughts should not touch each other. As a "pro" tip, Ky states, "I recommend never buying Malas that aren't hand knotted."

    For Heaven’s Sake is teaming up with Ky Gabriel in early January 2018 for a Mala making workshop, where she'll provide insight into the art of Mala making. Come set powerful intentions for your life and create beautiful 108 bead Malas while making new friends. Learn about mantras and how to use them in your japa meditation with your very own healing gemstone Mala that you will create! Includes a short guided meditation. No experience necessary.

    To be sure to get the stones and colors you desire, signing up early is required. The class is $65 includes all materials and instruction (price includes standard stones). Ky will contact you with stone options as soon as your order is confirmed. There may be an additional charge for premium stones (available upon request).

    Register for the Mala making workshop today - space is limited! You can register online by clicking here or by calling the store: 303.964.9339. 

  • Friday the 13th, November 2017

    Friday the 13th, 2017

     

    Is there something to fear on Friday the 13th?

    For years people have said Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. Horror movies have been named after this day, that's how prevalent the the belief is, however, astrologically, there’s nothing about Fridays or the 13th of the month that indicate danger or bad luck.

    Friday is associated with the planet Venus, which associates the day with pleasant things like love, friendship, art and even a little indulgence. In Angel Numbers, 13 presents the following:

    "The ascended masters (such as Jesus, Quan Yin, and so on) are with you, helping you maintain a positive outlook. The number 13 signifies that female ascended masters and goddesses are assisting you in staying positive."

    Studies do show that the occurrence of accidents tends to go up on Friday the 13th, but many authorities believe that this is the result of excessive anxiety rather than the day itself. So when Friday the 13th rolls around, if you're feeling anxious, meditate, light incense or commune with your crystals. You can also come by the store and enjoy some company and meet new people who share your interests!

    The key take away is: relax.

    Many Blessings~

  • Look for Opportunities and Healing in October

    Insights into the month of October from our dear friend Sophie Rose:

    October has arrived, and it's time to take care of business during the first two weeks of the month. We'll want to sort things out in our personal and social life and make adjustments or clear up some issues. We will also become more discriminating or analytical in our relationships (Mars and Venus in Virgo). 

    Since last December, we might have pushed to find a way to manage our need for relationships and our desire for freedom, or find a social setting to express our deepest, most original self. Those of us who weren't successful will now feel the frustration and risk to create conflict by recklessly standing up for their beliefs (last Jupiter-Uranus opposition). 

    If we've been weighing the pros and cons of a big decision, we'll probably be ready to make it around October 8th and 9th.

    Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 10th, where it will stay until November 2018: growth will happen through deep sharing, delving into emotions, exploring taboos, looking into our shadows. This brings also great risks of power abuse and manipulations, while more and more people will become conscious of the necessity to act together on things that really matter. Developing intimacy with one another or joining forces around a passion will bring a lot of expansion and opportunities.

    Full Moon: October 5th, 13 Aries

    New Moon: October 19th, 27 Libra

    Be well, and visit the store to find crystals for healing, visit with staff, and connect with your tribe. Blessings~

    Himalayan salt lamps are made from pink salt crystals that were mined from the edge of the Himalayan Mountains. They are lit from the inside with a bulb, which gives off a dim, amber light. Himalayan salt lamps have made their way from specialty apothecaries to decor magazines.

    Himalayan salt lamps are more than just decorative night lamps. A lot of people keep them in their homes, not just because of their visual appeal, but also because of their wide range of benefits. All sorts of claims have been made of these lamps – from purifying the air to neutralizing electromagnetic radiation.

    If you are suffering from allergies, try keeping a Himalayan salt lamp in the living room and your bedroom. This will help cut back on allergy symptoms. You’ll notice a big difference after a week or two.

    Improve indoor air quality

    According to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is more polluted than the outdoor air. Contaminants such as dust, dirt, mold spores, smoke and chemicals used inside the house can contribute to indoor air pollution. Since most people majority of their time inside their home, it can take a toll on one’s health.

    The Himalayan pink salt lamp is believed to help improve indoor air quality by filtering impurities from the air. When lit, these lamps attract water molecules from the air as well as any foreign bodies they may be carrying. They help improve the air you breathe; hence, improving your overall health and well-being.
