    Jazz’s Gems

    A Quick Summary on Jade       Typically when you think of, or see jade, you see green jade. Although it does come in other colours, I will be touching  mainly on the green variety. It is best for abundance, soothing nerves, prosperity and helping one achieve their goals and dreams. It gives you an existential pick-me-up in a way. It is a softer stone so you need to be cautious when wearing it or cleaning it, but jade is a great addition to any home, work or as a piece of jewelry. Green jade is an abundance stone that brings harmony and happiness to your relationships and also your…

    Book Review The Book of Stones: Who They Are & What They Teach by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian Published by Destiny Books 560 pages Publication date: March 10, 2015     I really enjoyed this book. It is now the book I reach for if I have any questions about stones, or just want to do some reading to see what I may be needing in my life. There is a take on the approach to the stones that I really appreciate. They refer to it as “an I-Thou” meeting and talk about how the stones have the ability to do what they can, but only if they are…

    Explaining Crystals to Muggles

      When electricity was first experimented with, imagine how people reacted. “I walked by Tesla’s place again today. Still playing with those wires and metal bits to get his invisible energy to work.” No one understood electricity, or tried to, until finally someone did. They knew there was something there that couldn’t be seen but could be manipulated if they used the right elements. Crystals and their energies/vibrations are no different. In this article I aim to offer a simple, relatable explanation of how these energies work and how they compare to the similar energy we have already mastered, electricity. Metatron’s cube is a crystal grid from sacred geometry and…

    Dream Achievement Spell

        I have always felt a pull to live off the land, like it’s my life’s purpose to homestead. I’ve always sought a deeper connection with the earth around me and have wanted to be able to have a long term connection with a specific piece of nature with time to nurture and build it. Because of this pull I have fashioned my entire life around this goal, thankfully finding a wonderful partner and friends to do it with. We live out of a skoolie, my friends out of their own, which is almost fully converted specifically to find the place we feel a pull or need to call…

    Chakra Balancing Meals – Crown Chakra Detox Meals Our final chakra is the Crown chakra which represents our connection to the universe, our wisdom, and our spiritual center. Having a blocked crown chakra can show itself in a disinterest in one’s path, an inability to or disinterest in mediation or rituals, or a lack of prayer. For the crown chakra one may choose to fast, but personally i worry about the effects of fasting long term on the metabolism. For this reason we will be covering quite a few detox recipes instead. These can be combined or used separately, but all can be used to plan a few days of…

    Balancing Meals – Throat Chakra     Blueberry Lemon Pie The throat chakra controls our ability to express ourselves and live our truth. An unbalanced throat chakra may express itself in an inability to speak one’s mind, even when offered a platform to do so. Also creative issues such as writer’s block, or not having the wherewithal to work on an art project. In family settings this can be witnessed as a child backing away from a club they’re just not feeling into right now or a spouse procrastinating a work project when they’re usually very strict about a timeline. Even something as seemingly small as your child not writing…

    Familiars & Crystal Magic

    I have two cats and one dog. My dog is my baby, but I didn’t get along with my cats until roughly a year ago when I began to better understand them. I believed cats were rude, loud and did whatever they wanted, basically teenagers. My current two were exceedingly unpleasant and wanton compared to most I have encountered. If they didn’t get their way they would potty all over the house out of spite, and were constantly under my feet tripping me and constantly yelling. Being accustomed to dogs made their behavior seem irritating and unruly. Finally I started paying attention beyond asking myself if they needed food or…
