Healing Hearts Trio

Colors vibrate different therapeutic qualities, as do crystals. These vibrations affect us consciously and subconsciously, healing our mind, body and spirit.

The subtle vibration from the color pink has a tranquilizing effect on the muscular system and soothes the emotions. It helps you to allow yourself to let go of negativity at a deep level and find a fresh start. Pink also helps the heart to feel and experience unconditional love.

Crystal vibrations also heal our wounded heart. The deep pink heart with Rhodonite will help you heal past emotional hurts. Rhodonite clears away emotional wounds from the past, allowing for forgiveness and unselfish love.

The medium pink heart is made of Kunzite, Rhodochrosite and Rose Quartz. This heart will help you with current situations in your life. Rhodochrosite, the center stone, gently brings painful and repressed feelings to the surface, allowing them to be acknowledged and then dissipated through emotional release. Kunzite awakens the heart center, clearing away emotional debris, healing heartache. Rose quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels, and brings deep inner healing and self love.

The final heart is soft pink with Rose Quartz and helps to prepare you for the future. This heart restores trust and harmony. It encourages unconditional love, self-forgiveness and infinite peace. It teaches you how to love yourself so you can receive and give love to others.

Tranquil Trees

Trees have the wonderful ability to fill us with inner peace and harmony. Tranquil Tree will help you stay connected to tree spirits through the soothing vibrations from Amber and Moss Agate. Amber is a fossilized tree resin said to alleviate stress and bring balance into our lives. Moss Agate balances the emotions, reduces stress and lessens fear.

Hang where you can admire your Tranquil Tree and to receive its soothing energies. Since crystals naturally absorb unwanted energies, like stress, your Tranquil Tree will need periodic cleansing. Place in salt overnight, and charge in sunlight for 30 minutes.

Clarity Rings

Clarity is the understanding we gain in a situation. It helps us to understand what everything means and how it affects our life and the lives of those around us. Not having clarity in a situation can lead to scattered thoughts, mental fog and confusion, disorganization, and chaotic energies. We lose the ability to see clearly and make discriminating decisions.

Clarity Rings is comprised of three rings. The inner ring is the ring of discovery, and reflects our unconscious. Moonstone is considered a stone of new beginning and a talisman for inward journeys and discovery. Meditating with Moonstone takes us deep into our unconscious. Quite often we discover the missing pieces of the puzzle, where the puzzle is considered our current situation.

The beautiful reflective quality of Moonstone reminds us of the Moon and that our lives are full of cycles, like the moon. It teaches us to recognize and explore our current situation, and that taking appropriate actions will resolve the issues at hand and assist in the transition to the next cycle. Moonstone also has a powerful effect of calming and stabilizing our emotions.

The middle ring reflects our conscious and current situation. Rainbow Fluorite is an excellent stone for bringing clarity into any situation. It clears cluttered thoughts, mental confusion and conflicting ideas. This promotes clear thinking, making order out of chaos, and harmonizing energies.

Fluorite also teaches us how to focus on one idea, opposed to the many ideas floating around in our mind. By focusing on one idea we can figure out what we need to do in order to see our idea manifest. It helps to structure our energies to accomplish our goals and dreams. This structuring of energy brings harmony into our life, and assists in organizing the transition into the next cycle in our life.

The final ring reflects our release of the disorganized energies and patterns. Aquamarine is known as a stone of courage. It gives us the courage we need to release the old patterns and adopt new harmonious and organized ones. Its energies calm the mind and reduce stress. It also helps to filter information reaching the brain and clarifies perception, sharpens the intellect and clears up confusion.

Aquamarine asks that you take inventory of your life and possessions, and to release that which no longer fits who you are. It helps to free oneself of attachments to old patterns, relationships and ways of being. Its deep cleansing energy can assist one in moving through the transition and change from one cycle to the next, to remove the resistance and overcome the fear of the unknown.

When we work with these three stones together, Moonstone helps us to reflect upon our current situation, to help identify what our issues are. Fluorite helps us to see clearly and organize our thoughts and energies to come up with a plan to work with these issues. And Aquamarine gives us the courage release our old patterns and move forward with clarity.

Clarity Rings can be used in many ways. You could place each one in the palm of your while meditating. If placed over the solar plexus it will help draw out old emotional patterns and make conscious what has been unconscious. These rings can also balance the third eye, found between and a little above the eyebrows, and mental energies. The uses for these rings are endless. Simply having them in a room near you with help settle chaos and bring clarity into your life.

Hearts of Forgiveness

Not everyone is taught forgiveness. And others assume that everyone knows how to forgive. Some of us think we know how to forgive, but when we are called 'unforgiving' it make us wonder.
This was a very interesting piece to create. I have struggled to learn about forgiveness over the past few years, and with the help of creating this piece I think I have finally learned how to forgive. Making me know longer unforgiving, but forgivable.

Forgiveness is the process of absolving or letting go of feelings that are a direct result of a mistake, offense or behavior. Sometimes we need to forgive others for things they have done to us, and sometimes we need to forgive ourselves for things we have done to others. Which ever the case may be, releasing these negative feelings and energies will allow us to learn from the situation and move forward in a positive way.

Forgiveness may not be an easy thing for some people to do, especially those who have not been taught how to forgive, or those who are punishing themselves needlessly. The energies from the following crystals will help us with forgiveness and moving forward in a loving and positive way.
