Crystals For Healing Depression Image

Are you feeling sad all the time? Have you lost interest in your favorite hobbies or do you experience recurring mood swings? Are all these affecting your performance at work, relationship or your school grades? Chances are you are depressed, and using crystals for healing depression might be a viable option for you.

What is Depression?

Depression is a medical condition that affects your brain and consequently your nervous system. A good percent of the population suffers from depression. The difference is in the level of depression. The following symptoms are signs of depression:

  • Feeling tired all the time or just lacking energy
  • You dread being with people, and you always feel better alone
  • Feeling agitated and restless
  • Feeling like you always want to cry
  • You suddenly don’t want to do the things you enjoy
  • Feeling like everyone and everything is against you

With time, most severely depressed patients turn to drugs, alcohol, and other negative vices to help them cope with the depression. As you seek medical attention, try other alternatives like crystal therapy.

How Do Crystals for Healing Depression Work?

Our entire body system is just energy that shows up in different densities and patterns. And our thoughts and emotions are connected to our physical bodies and have a frequency of their own. When these energies work in a balanced way, we experience good health. However, when these energies are distorted, we experience ill health.

For centuries, crystals have been used to restore health to persons suffering from many ailments including depression. Crystals for healing depression work like a magnet, draw in all the negative energy in and around you and replace it with positive ones. This in effect corrects any imbalance in your body that had manifested itself as a disease.

Types of Crystals for Healing Depression

Different types of crystals work to target different types of imbalances and hence disorders. Below are some of the most popular crystals for healing depression; hopefully some of them can be your alternative way of treating depression for you or your loved one.

Citrine

This pale yellow stone radiates warmth all around and in turn diffuses any negative energy in your chakras. This crystal will calm you down and reawaken your interests in the unique gifts you possess. It works by cleansing your chakras, especially the third chakra (located in your abdomen just below the lower rib), which is the entry point of most negative energies we have. With time, all those destructive energies like suicide attempts, irritability, and anxiety build up due to depression will clear off your mind

It is a rare crystal, and therefore, quite expensive. Once you find it, just hold the crystal as you meditate. Align your desire to overcome depression with your highest good and path and let this crystal manifest your desires.

Sunstone

Holding the sunstone is like having the real sun in your hands. This single stone radiates warmth in its gold, red, orange and brown hues. Do you feel like your life is at a stalemate? Are you going through burnout in your career? It is time to clear your mind.

Use the sunstone to focus the sun’s warmth and openness in bringing you freedom and self-empowerment to work harder and see the opportunities that depression had blocked you from seeing. You can customize your key holder using sunstone. Such ornaments, when worn daily, can awaken your feelings of independence.

Carnelian

Depression tends to make us forget how daring we are in handling tough situations. Take the Egyptian master architects for example. When the strain of endless years of building pyramids took a toll on them, these architects wore the carnelian as a necklace or bracelet to boost their motivation in getting the job done. Now, history can attest to what these architects achieved.

This polished translucent stone will captivate you with its brilliance. Are you feeling demotivated about going to work? Do you lack the drive to lead your company to hit that next milestone? Does your training for the upcoming marathon seem like too much for you to endure? Use ‘the setting sun’ gem to restore your courage to conquer hurdles. Place the carnelian at any of your first four lower chakras and get invigorated.

Tiger’s Eye

For centuries, this mysterious yet powerful golden brown gem’s vibrational healing has been used to avert evil spirits and spells. Did you know that even the Roman soldiers wore it when going for battle? It has combined the sun and the earth’s protective energies to increase our self-worth and self-love, which makes it the best ammunition against depression.

Anytime you are about to deal with a negative person, like those people who you just can’t stand, or you need to square out some differences with that annoying neighbor, wear this gem and it will protect you from all the negative energy in your aura.

Other Gems

Other crystals that can help you to fight depression include:

  • Amazonite can balance mood swings.
  • Amethyst that induces tranquility to your chaotic life.
  • Aventurine will help you feel loved and wanted again even as you fight that terminal illness.
  • Agate will help you to reason when under a lot of pressure.
  • Garnet will make you feel stable and secure again when all odds are against you.
  • Finally, ladies’ emerald is ideal for ladies who want to clear negative thoughts and promote harmony in their lives.

Well, the list is endless.

Conclusion

Whatever issue is causing your depression, you don’t have to dwell on it too much, lest it destroys you. Wake up and reach out to what Mother Nature is giving you. There are so many creative ways that you can use crystals for healing depression. Whether you want to wear them as bracelets or necklaces, place them randomly in your house, carry a combination of one or more stones, or incorporate the rocks in your daily meditation, the healing benefits are still the same.

And like I always say, I am not a medical doctor. I am a beneficiary of crystal therapy, and I want to share my knowledge and experiences with the world. If you have depression, always seek medical attention even as you use the above crystals for healing depression.

Divine Feminine Nature of Rose Quartz, Its Healing and Magical Properties

Published

on

rose quartz magic image

People associate rose quartz with love, heart, and beauty. Since ancient times humanity has used it in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries. It’s not surprising that even today, Rose Quartz is one of the most popular crystals to use. We use it for healing broken hearts, protection and attracting romantic luck. Let’s take a brief look at the meaning of rose quartz and its healing and magical properties.

Divine Feminine Nature of Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is the embodiment of divine femininity. It is full of feminine, Yin energy, practically free of impurities and of the masculine Yang energy.

The nature of rose quartz is associated with Water, one of the two traditionally female elements. Water is our emotions, tenderness, inspiration, ability to love and care. This crystal helps to remove fears and open the heart to new love. There are many crystals that have a similar quality. But, unlike them, rose quartz does not affect intellect and emotions. That is, a person wearing rose quartz does not rethink his life and attitude to people in an intellectual way but learns to trust his (her) feelings, gradually opening himself (herself) up to unconditional love and acceptance.

Therefore, rose quartz is considered one of the best crystals for the attraction of love. It dissolves the emotional shell of people and eliminates excessive cynicism. It has a positive effect on the self-esteem of its owner, especially if it is a woman. Rose quartz returns woman’s confidence in her own attractiveness and makes her more soft and graceful. This crystal is also indispensable for melancholy and pessimists. It gives people children’s spontaneity, teaches them to notice the good in the world and the people around them. Rose quartz is a wonderful talisman for those whose work requires friendliness, tact, tolerance (teachers of schools, Tutors, nurses).

Rose Quartz Meaning

Ancient Assyrian civilization was the first, who used rose quartz. First, it was used just for decorative objects. Much later ancient Assyrians started to use it as beads in jewelry.

Early Egyptian, Greek, and Roman civilizations used rose quartz as a talisman and as a token that a deal had been reached. The rose quartz talisman was the indication of an achieved transaction.

The Egyptians also believed that rose quartz crystal could prevent wrinkles and aging.

Greek and Roman myths attached the symbol of love to rose quartz. According to the myths, Cupid (Roman God of desire) or Eros (Greek God of love) granted the gift of love to people in the form of rose quartz. Another myth about rose quartz tells a story of the crystal, getting its color from Aphrodite’s blood, that was spilled in an attempt to save her dying lover Adonis. Both lovers were bleeding over the stone, and its lasting stain symbolizes their eternal love.

Ancient Native Americans also believed that rose quartz is a love stone. They used it in amulets for eliminating anger and frustration, harmonizing emotions and attracting love.

Rose Quartz, as well as other crystals, possesses unique properties allowing people to recover and get rid of vital problems. This crystal has healing properties in the treatment of human organs and psychological trauma.

Namaste!

A Detailed Look at Yoni Crystals: Tips to Choose the Best for You

Published

on

yoni crystals image

Yoni crystals also referred to as the yoni egg, jade, or love egg, have been Asia’s best-kept secret in bringing out the feminine pleasure and the healing power of the yoni. This egg, together with other yoni crystals, has been in use for more than 5,000 years.

Today, this ancient Taoist secret is out and shared by many health-conscious women worldwide. Do you know this secret? Are you using it to get in touch with your femininity? I will explore different crystals and assist you to make the right choice depending on your current needs.

Why Do Women Use Yoni Crystals?

These stones are curved from the earth. They have various healing and restoration capabilities. They tap the healing power of the sacral chakra.

The sacral chakra is the center of energy that sets the woman’s emotional state and sexual gratification.

When going through physical or emotional trauma, a woman tends to retain negative residual energy around the womb or hips. This negative energy will manifest itself in many ways including a poor sex drive, urinary incontinence, menstrual cramps, hormonal imbalances, and infertility.

The woman puts these egg-shaped crystals in or around the vagina (also known as the yoni) during meditation to balance the energy in the sacral chakra. In turn, she accesses both spiritual and physical healing.

The Different Types of Yoni Crystals

different types of yoni eggs

Commonly used yoni crystals are rose quartz, nephrite jade, black obsidian, and green aventurine. However, according to Taoist teachings, traditionally, women used only 3 crystals. They would start with Jade crystals. Jade has healing properties. You then introduce Black Obsidian. It integrates your ‘shadow.’ Finally, whenever you feel ready, move on to Rose Quartz. This gem opens the Heart. Let’s have a deeper look at each of them.

Nephrite Jade

This is the most popular especially for beginners. Compared to other crystals, the nephrite-jade stone is a dense and heavy gemstone. The weight makes it ideal for Kegel exercises. In addition, it doesn’t break easily, which is good because when starting, that gem will fall multiple times before you master the retention skill. This crystal also has high thermal conductivity. It feels warm immediately you put it inside and, therefore, your body uses lesser energy to warm it up.

The advantages of Nephrite Jade

It communicates with your Heart chakra. This egg will connect your heart with your yoni. It also balances your body’s water, which promotes your overall health, especially that of your kidneys. Finally, Jade promotes balance, well-being, and self-love.

Black Obsidian

This crystal is a hard, dense, strong volcanic stone. The grounding and salvaging properties of the Black Obsidian are excellent in removing negative deep unconscious thoughts. Such thoughts may manifest as hidden anger and fear from past traumatic experiences such as the loss of a child during childbirth. Ideally, this crystal resonates with your root chakra to relieve the pelvic negative energies.

Rose Quartz

rose quartz yoni crystals image

Rose Quartz or the love stone is an intimacy gemstone. This love stone heals the body and spirit of emotional wounds through the heart chakra. It does this by sending positive vibrations to the yoni to replace negative feelings and hindrances. This energy release, in turn, facilitates the restoration of your self-worth and self-love. Use the Rose Quartz crystals for your yoni to bring back the romantic mood in your life.

Note

Most yoni crystals are available in three different sizes: Small, medium and large. If you are just beginning, start with the large size and work towards the small size. Find the type that is drilled or threaded for easy removal. However, remember that you don’t have to worry about the egg getting stuck in the yoni. This never happens because the woman’s womb is created to give birth, and, therefore, naturally pushes the egg down and out of the yoni.

A Guide to Buying the Right Yoni Crystals for You

How do you choose the right yoni crystal for maximum benefits? Here is my simple guide.

Your intuition

Yoni crystals possess energy that draws our inner energies. What does your intuition say? I may advise you to start with Jade but if your inner being has a stronger attraction to the love stone, by all means, go for the love stone. This is because unless you feel internally connected to the yoni crystal, you will never fully experience the benefits.

Mineral Composition

Choose yoni crystals that resonate with you. Minerals such as Jadeite and Nephrite can be very powerful in their pure form. You can also choose according to your Zodiac. Sometimes a crystal may be composed of more than one mineral (like the Lilac Jadeite). Understand the energies these minerals possess and chose a crystal based on that. Be careful, however, not to fall for cheap imitations. Genuine original yoni crystals are certified.

Shape and size

Choose a shape and size that is comfortable. Our yonis are different. If an oval crystal feels more comfortable than a circular one, use the oval gem.

Exercise Routine – How do you plan to use the crystals? When meditating, bathing or sleeping? A yoni crystal stays firm in a sitting position. If you try different positions, the heavy and biggest crystals work better.

Yoni Crystals FAQs

Will I feel cold when I insert these crystals in my yoni?

Initially, yes. But this will quickly shift to a warm and cuddly embrace as the crystal absorbs the warmth of your Yoni.

How do I clean my yoni crystal?

yoni egg image

Soak the crystal in warm soapy water for a few minutes before air-drying it. Add a few drops of natural plant extracts for a fresh scent as desired. To sanitize your drilled yoni egg, pour a few drops of coconut oil into the hole. Run a long string back and forth through the hole. Wash it off with a mild soap. Let it dry.

Are there any side effects for prolonged use of the yoni crystals?

There are no known side effects of using yoni crystals. However, it is important to mention that not all crystals are ideal for the yoni. Some are intended to be placed in a room and not come into physical contact. Since these are earth minerals, some may react with your skin or deposit some chemicals in your yoni. Make sure you understand the properties of the metal composition of the crystals before buying.

Conclusion

The yoni crystals are every woman’s secret weapon to unleashing her sexual strength. I hope this guide equips you to take full advantage of the benefits of yoni crystals. The power to heal yourself is now in your hands. Try them today.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: The Healing Effect Of The Sacred Syllables

Published

on

Medicine buddha mantra image

Medicine Buddha mantra clears away negative karma that quickly eliminates suffering from diseases and pacifies harmful spirits. Its reading brings success and fulfillment of all desires. Also, this mantra is very effective for healing mental diseases. Besides that, the Medicine Buddha mantra can help you not only in healing physical ailments but also to overcome the underlying internal painful afflictions, hatred, jealousy, desire, greed, and ignorance.

If you want to protect yourself from diseases, visualize Medicine Buddha and read his mantra.

Medicine Buddha

Medicine Buddha is a special aspect of Buddha that helps in healing various diseases. He is also called Bhaiṣajyaguru which means “King of Medicine Master and Lapis Lazuli Light”. Everyone who sees Medicine Buddha for the very first time is mesmerized by the brilliance of the deep blue colors of his face and body.

“Medicine Buddha is an enlightened being who has unbiased compassion for all living beings. He protects living beings from physical and mental sickness and other dangers and obstacles and helps them to eradicate the three poisons – attachment, hatred, and ignorance – which are the source of all sickness and danger. He is a Buddha Doctor.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Medicine Buddha helps samsaric patients to transcend pain. He also helps dying patients to accept death. He gives them the realization that though death may be near, there is nothing to fear. Medicine Buddha guides them through the intermediate stage prior to the next rebirth.

In China, people believe that it is very auspicious to have an altar where you make offerings to Medicine Buddha directly facing the main door of your house. In this case, Medicine Buddha brings happiness, joy, and health to your house. People who live in such house will always have protection from any kinds of diseases.

The Text And The Meaning Of Medicine Buddha Mantra

It is very important to use visualization when you’re reading this mantra. Pronounce the text of Medicine Buddha mantra loudly, clearly, paying attention to each letter and sound.

TAYATA OM BEKHANDZYE BEKHANDZYE

MAHA BEKHANDZYE

RADZA SAMUDGATE SVAHA

TAYATA means “Gone beyond” (meaning beyond Samsara and Nirvana).

OM is composed of the three pure sounds that signify the holy body, speech, and mind.

BEKHANDZYE means “eliminating pain”.

MAHA BEKHANDZYE means “great eliminating path”.

RADZA means “king”.

SAMUDGATE means “he who has come forth”.

SVAHA means establishing a foundation in the heart: the blessing, the devotion from which the realization comes.

Read this Matra 7, 21 or 108 times daily.

Medicine Buddha Visualization

While reading the mantra you need to practice the purification visualization described below.

Imagine how the purifying rays of light are streaming from the heart and the Holy body of Medicine Buddha, completely filling your body from head to toe. These rays of light are cleansing you from all diseases and pollution caused by spirits, negative karma and obscurations.

Visualize that your body is becoming light, purified, clean and transparent like crystal. The rays of light flow down to the body twice, each time filling it with blissful transparent light.

Now visualize the arising Lotus and the Moon in Medicine Buddha’s heart. In the center of the Moon, you can see the OM symbol surrounded by the mantra.

As you reading the mantra, you need to visualize the rays of light coming in all directions from the syllables in his heart. After that Medicine Buddha turns into light and dissolves into your heart.
