  • 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.

    Cost: $12.00 per person, and a special couple's price of $20.

  • 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~
