  • Are Opals Bad Luck?

    Are Opals Bad LuckCenturies ago, the opal was thought to bring good luck. In fact, it was believed that opal brought its owner good fortune, hope and purity. It was well documented in Roman history that Caesars gave their wives opal for good luck. But in the 19th and 20th century, opal’s charm took a turn for the worse.

    While other crystals and gemstones were prized for their healing qualities, opal was linked with dire omens and sinister malevolence.

    The opal’s nasty reputation likely came from countless tales of bad luck and stories of superstition. Diamond merchants started spreading rumors to prevent people from buying them. According to them, it’s bad luck to wear opals, even more so if it’s not your birthstone. One of the worst blows in opals reputation came when the story about a Spanish king gave an opal to his wife, who died shortly after. Then, he gave the ring to his grandmother. Unfortunately, she also expired immediately. After the funeral, the ring was passed on to the king’s sister and then his sister-in-law, who both died mysteriously later on. Finally, the king decided to end his misery by slipping to ring on his finger. People believed that it was the opal ring that brought about these fatalities, when in fact, they died because of cholera. This sullies the opal’s already sordid reputation.

    No gem was more vilified than the poor opal. To this day, a glimmer of the rumors and superstitions still survive. But as we entered the age of reason and science, people have then realized that the belief that opal causes bad luck is nothing more than an urban myth. Opal is a beautiful stone that deserve to be appreciated without prejudice.

    Today, people from all over the world are embracing opals for their beauty and symbolism. They are especially favored by Asians, particularly the Japanese and Chinese, who believe they are lucky for business.

  • 3 Ways You Can Benefit from Astrology Readings

    Astrology Reading


    If you haven’t tried astrology reading before, you are probably wondering what the fuss is all about. Astrology is an ancient science, which studies the positions and movements of the planets, stars and other celestial bodies, and how they affect our lives. In fact, a lot of people use astrology as a guide for a happy and successful life.

    Here are 3 benefits you can get from astrology reading.

    Get answers to pressing questions

    When you are having a hard time making a decision, astrology readings can help. In fact, it can provide answers more illuminating than you could ever imagine. Astrologers can throw light on different aspects of your life such as love, career, education, family and others.

    Consider all of your options and astrology will help you determine what choices to make. Most of the time, we know the answer to our questions. We just want to confirm our gut feeling. Listen to your intuition. Pay attention to it, use it and trust it.

    Look at the year ahead

    Astrology enables us to look into the future. It provides us access to the choices that are available to us in the futures; thus, allowing us to make more informed decisions. It shows us what lies ahead, what to expect in the future and gives us a clue as to when is the best time to take action.

    Keep in mind, though, that astrology is not fortune telling. Rather, it helps you to be always in control of your life. If you know that you’re due for some good fortune, then you’ll have plenty of time to prepare for everything that life will inevitably throw at you.

    Understand what makes you who you are

    Astrology can give us an insight about your personality and character, which can help us understand and accept who we really are. Astrologers can also pinpoint the skills, abilities and talents we may possess and provide some suggestions on how to take advantage of them. They can also reveal damaging behavioral patterns and provide suggestions on how we can better adapt with the people we live with and avoid conflicts.

    Always remember that astrology readings are supposed to be used as guides and are mostly based on your astrological chart. Follow your own heart. If you think what the astrologer told you aren’t accurate, then they are likely wrong. You know yourself better than anyone else.

  • Cleansing Gemstones and Crystals

    Cleansing Gemstones and Crystals

    Crystals will absorb negative energy over time. The pendulum you hold in your hand, the jewelry you wear and the stones in your pocket - all of these absorb the negative energies around you and the energies you have within you. Crystals can attract positive and negative energy, even if they have been left sitting around somewhere.  Because of that, crystals that you keep with you or work with often should be cleansed regularly.

    Cleansing your crystals ensures that they function at their highest level. This is done to clear away all inappropriate energies and to ensure that all the negative energies it has accumulated are not passed on.

    If you use a particular crystal for healing, it is especially important to cleanse it before and after each healing session. For these crystals to be effective, you want them to be at their highest vibration possible. Plus, you do not want to transfer the negative energies onto your client or to yourself during the healing process.

    Cleansing crystals is not a physical process. It is not the traditional way of cleansing, which involves the use of soap and water. Rather, it is a spiritual ritual.


    Salt cleansing is recommended when a crystal is in need of a serious cleanse. Lay the crystals on a bed of rock salt and then leave them for about 24 to 48 hours. Throw the salt afterwards as it has absorbed the negative energy within the crystals.

    Although most crystals seem to be rock-like, some are extremely delicate and may get damaged if you treat them wrong. Flourite, celestite and malachite have soft surfaces that may scratch easily.


    Water is a universal cleanser. If you have access to lake, spring or ocean water, that would be great. If not, purified water is fine as well. Place the crystal in a glass of water and leave it for 24 to 48 hours. Or just a good cold water cleanse in a pinch. You can also add salt to the water. Then, place the glass in on your windowsill and let it charge in the sun.

    Keep in mind, though, that not all crystals should be cleansed in water. Selenite and Halite, for instance, should not be immersed in water for long periods as they may dissolve or degrade. Also, some crystals such as irradiated amethyst and citrine will fade if left in the direct sunlight.

    Smudge in Spray

    For quick and easy use, especially while travelling, we have several spray mists available for instantaneous cleansing and blessing. Choose from sage spray, palo santo wood oil, or sprays containing holy water, lavender oils and Florida water. Don't forget to spray your aura as well. It's refreshing and have immediate and long-lasting beneficial effects. For Heaven's Sake - New Age, Inc. 4900 West 46th Avenue Denver, CO  80212 (303) 964-9339


  • 4 Ways Crystals Can Change Your Life

    4 Ways Crystals Can Change Your Life

    People have valued the beauty of crystals throughout history. The elaborate, cut crystal chandeliers that adorn many modern houses attest to that. Aside from that, crystals have long been used for their unique and special properties.

    Crystals can help change your life in the most beautiful and positive ways. Here are 4 ways crystals can change your life.


    For thousands of years, stones and crystals have been used to promote health and healing of the mind and body. Today, some new age practitioners claim that certain crystals have some medicinal benefits. Bloodstone, malachite and lapis are good pain relievers. Place them on the affected body part until the pain lessens. Amethyst, on the other hand, is a healing stone for diseases of the lungs and blood-related problems.

    Boost Happiness

    Sunstone helps absorb fear and anxiety. Plus, it will help you feel confident, upbeat and uplifted. This is a great stone for individuals who are struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Carry this happy, calming stone, wear it as a jewelry or sleep with it by your side and it will make you feel happier and more balanced.

    Good night’s sleep

    Do you find yourself tossing and turning most nights? Some of you may be tempted to take over-the-counter sleep medicines, but finding natural ways to help you sleep is always better.

    Believe it or not, crystals can actually help you get a good night’s sleep. Before you go to sleep, place an amethyst stone under your pillow. This can help with your sleeping problems. It will bring soothing and calming energies that can help you relax. It works by ridding your body frustration, nervous energies and stress. Plus, it chases away nightmares.


    Rose quartz supports, nurtures and allows a person to feel the most powerful energy in the universe – love. It emits vibrations of love, beauty and compassion. It is a stone of unconditional love that opens and heals the energy of the heart. It encourages forgiveness of others and of yourself.


  • Selecting the Right Crystal for You


    With so many gems and crystals to choose from, it can be difficult to find the right one for you. Selecting the right crystal is of great importance since getting one that does not match can be constantly draining. Some may even produce a headachy sensation, which is a clear sign that the crystal is not for you.

    Upon entering the store, you may find yourself drawn to a particular crystal due to its shape, feel or color. You may not know anything about that particular crystal, but it just called out to you. Once you hold it in your hand, you will feel the connection. Sometimes, you may feel a sense of hot or cold, a vibration or tingling. This can mean that you have been found by the crystal, and it wants to be with you.

    If you are unsure if what you are feeling or sensing is real, hold the crystals one at a time and feel it physically and emotionally. Be open to sensations like tingling or change in temperature.  You may feel like they’re talking to you, almost asking you take them home.

    Another way to choose a crystal is to look for a crystal for a particular purpose. If you have a specific purpose, then be sure to state it clearly. You can say “I want to connect with a crystal for grounding” or “I want to connect with a crystal for healing”. Rose quartz is a classic stone for anything heart-related. Citrine is for a positive outlook, hematite is for grounding and tiger’s eye is for courage.

    As years pass by, you may feel that a crystal you were strongly drawn to doesn’t feel good now. This means that it’s time to pass it on to the next person. Some crystals will stay with you while others should go when the time comes. Which ones are you attracted to?  Start there and then dive into their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual meanings. You will find your answer by listening to your instincts. This is your intuition and it's always right! Remember to check out our gemstone page:

  • How to Incorporate Crystals Into Your Everyday Life


    Crystals have always fascinated and benefited mankind. They have long been used throughout history for a variety of purposes. Today, more and more people are open to using healing crystals. In fact, even celebrities like Miranda Kerr and Katy Perry are embracing the benefits of these gems.

    If you have found the perfect crystal for you, chances are, you want to make the most out of them.  Here are 4 ways to incorporate crystals into your everyday life.

    Wear as a jewelry

    The most common way of wearing crystals is to wear them as a necklace or as a ring. Or you can just slip it in your pouch if you don’t feel like wearing them. This can come in handy whenever you need a boost in confidence or you need some help in calming down. Some crystals can also intensify or amplify your energies.


    Healing crystals are often used to help relieve stress and anxiety. Similarly, many people practice yoga in order to get the same benefits. When you use crystals during yoga practice, it allows you to create a closer connection with yourself, your crystal and your yoga practice. Most importantly, it takes you to a deeper level of practice and will help you regain balance.

    You can place your crystals on the top edge or at the bottom of the mat. Crystals are pretty. They are sure to make you smile when you see them during plank pose.

    Place it under your pillow

    There are certain crystals that can help you sleep better at night and ward off nightmares. Simply place them under your pillow to promote a restful sleep.

    Memory enhancement

    Of course, we’re not suggesting that students can ditch their textbooks and lectures as crystals cannot give you a photographic memory. What crystals can do is to give you a boost in concentration and memory, making it easier for you to remember things.

    Keep calcite, hematite and pyrite crystals near your upper body during the day and under your pillow at night.

  • Clearing Your Energy Field Ideas… by Paul Morey (our customer friend)

    As light workers we absorb a lot of energy, & often energy invades our Energy Field. I am learning that as my abilities develop some time’s I need to find new ways to clear the excess energy & debris I collect.


    First of all is Hydration, we need to drink a lot more water than normal, because we process more thoughts, energy, & information than most people. Taking 3 or 4 minutes a few times each day to drink H2O can & does help us to clear toxic excess from our bodies.

    Second is calling the light, we all have protective practices we use to shield
    us from excess energies. Call a ring/vale/bubble of light can really help
    shield & release these energies. Blue is great for the psychic & mental areas, Pink for the heart & compassion, Green for healing & energy. White for purity and Angelic purposes.

    Protective stone’s worn on the body can help in cleansing and clearing our energy fields. Selenite, Hematite, Lapis Lazuli, Herkimer Diamonds, Apache Tears, Onyx, Obsidian, & Salt rocks can help in clearing away energy’s from our bodies helping us in our daily work. (Mini Tip; when you get home takes off the stone, laid it in a dish of dry sea salt to cleanse for the next day).

    Ringing of a bell, for some reason the vibration & tones of a bell ringing can help clear energies much like a spiritual diuretic lol. I have been known to stand under wind chimes on really stressful days. Also keeping a small bell can work as an energy clearing device, and mood improving technique.

    Blowing away the energy, when you need the quick fix close your eyes take a very deep breath & blow out as hard as you can. Repeat 2-3 times letting all energy flow from your core out. Relax for five to ten minutes with your eye’s closed till you feel centered. Envisioning the energy blowing out the cobwebs.

    Smudging yourself in times of anger or duress, using a smudge stick of sage (green or white) or Santo Polo wood, Sweet grass, or Copal resin can deeply clear your energy field helping you to find clarity, (Stand in a low ventilated room, away from a fire alarm, lite your smudge of choice combing it from front to back beginning at the top of your head to the tip of your toes).  Placing the Smudge in a fire proof container at your feet allowing the smoke to drift around you. Stretching and loosening your muscles as you go.

    A private prayer for Angelic cleansing and protection can be all you need. And last but not least a simple hug from someone can clear your energy and help boost your and the other persons energy’s.
