Using Crystals in your Garden

Place six tree agate around your garden or allotment to encourage growth. Dot natural chunks of Rose Quartz around so that your garden feels loved. Use Black tourmaline to protect new plants and promote new growth. Use Ocean Jasper to keep them nourished. Use cats eye to keep the cats off your flower beds. Use Aventurine when you have a plant that needs nurturing back to health. Use Moonstone so that your plants can absorb extra energy from the moon over night. Aquamarine can also be put in the water of cut flowers to keep them nourished and last longer. Tumblestone can also be placed around the base of indoor pot plants. By burying them in the soil it not only cleans your stones energetically but also infuses your plants with the stones energy.

Ways in which to Keep your crystals clean

There are many ways of cleansing crystals, but this is a question that we are frequently asked and so we decided to run this again.

Water: Run your crystals under running water and visualize any built up negative energy washing away down the sink. Ensure you visualize it turning back into positive as it hits the earth. (Please be mindful that some crystals are water soluble)

Sound: Using Tingsha bells or singing bowls over your crystals

Smoke: Pass your crystals through incense or white sage

Earth: Bury them in mother earth, but use a pot or a marker to remember where they are.

Sea: If you are lucky enough to live close to the ocean, you can wash them in the sea

Sparkle Drops: Use a crystal solution such as sparkle drops

Visualization: Use visualization such as a meditation

Breath: Use the breath - and blow positive energy into them

Other Crystals: Keep an apophyllite amidst your crysals to help keep them free of negative energies

Using Crystals to help you sleep

If you find that you are not sleeping, try putting four agate tumblestones ~ one at each corner of the room with a single terminated point facing inwards towards the room in front of each tumblestone. Place a small agate slice or agate cut base geode at the side of your bed or elsewhere in your room facing towards you. If you are not sleeping due to the menopause, try putting a fire agate under your pillow or a set of our Menopause Crystals.

Agate is thought to bring about calm and wellbeing as well as being felt to bring about good luck and financial wealth. It is a stone that is thought to be good for stress and anxiety due to its calming influence and can help relax you before going to bed at night and is thus thought to help you establish a good sleeping pattern. It is felt to be a good general overall crystal for use in crystal therapy and would be useful when placed on the sacral chakra where the reproductive system is situated.

Crystal Layout to lift depression and release anxiety

Coping with depression, stress and anxiety can be very debilitating. This layout will help to lift the depression and relieve the stress and anxiety that can go along side it.

To create a layout place one turquoise howlite heart on the throat chakra with the point facing upwards towards the head. Place a Lapis Lazuli heart on the brow chakra with the point facing downwards. Set your intent that they will both release issues with the throat and brow area and as they meet in the middle, the negative energy will meet and erupt upwards out of the body like a geezer. Just above the head place a tiger eye heart at the level of the soma chakra and an opalite heart at the level of the crown chakra. Around the top of the head place single terminated points in a fan shape with small amethyst points placed in between them. Above the opalite heart place a super seven and two black kyanite either side of that. Place a further two black kyanite on the outer edge of the pillow and a piece of stillbite under the pillow to allow the client to relax well during the session. You can replace the hearts with tumblestones. Leave in position for 15 - 20 minutes and repeat as necessary.

Crystal Layout to Remove Grief but Keep the Happy Memories

When we lose someone we love to the spirit world or for other reasons such as divorce, the grief can be devastating and can remain with us for many years. Eventually it will be time to let go and allow the grief to disperse. However there will be happy memories too which you will want to hold onto.

To create a layout to do both these things place an Apache tear about the level of the higher heart chakra. Below this place a rose quartz puff hear or a large tumblestone if you don't have a heart shaped crystal. leading from the bottom of the rose quartz puff heart place three Danburite placed in a fan shape. Beneath the middle Danburite place a further Danburite placed horizontal to the body. Finally and about level with the heart chakra place a good sized piece of fuschite to keep the magic of life alive. Lie within this layout for 15 to 20 minutes. During the day wear a Kunzite bracelet alongside a black obsidian or black onyx bracelet.

How to set about creating the right layout for you?

You first need to think about what it is you want to achieve. For this example I have chosen to build up business and be even more successful in all that you do..

Chose your items items to be included and set your intent as to what they will do:

  • A salt lamp to create a harmonious business and as you light the lamp each morning set your intent that is will shine a beacon for your continued success.
  • A business success set of crystals - which we have used since we first started up in business in 2005 - it can do the same for you if you allow it too
  • Three Natural Rose Quartz Chunks to promote unconditional love to your customers, three being the number of manifestation
  • Three Natural Citrine Points placed between the Natural Rose Quartz to bring finance into your business.
  • Points face inwards towards our business success crystals to encourage financial growth, the way it is placed between the Rose Quartz ensures that the growth is not done at the expense of customer care.
  • Seven Citrine Tumble Stones placed either side of each point and one extra to make the seven which is a spiritual number as we wanted to be successful but remain spiritual.
  • One large Merlinite tumblestone placed in front of the light and above the business success crystals to create magical feel about your business.
  • One smoke box to burn incense into which you can place another three citrine tumblestones.
  • Turn on the light every morning and light up an incense stick to cleanse your space and send out a smoke signal to potential customers. Cirlce the incense around the ring of crystals and wave it upwards to encourage upward growth. On this table you can also placed your business cards and promotional leaflets to set your intent on what you are ordering.

11th July 2016

Using Crystal Skulls in Layouts and Opening up your Crown Chakra?

Layouts do not need to complicated and the important thing is to set your intent as you lay your crystals down. A blocked crown chakra can inhibit your ability to connect with spirit, cause confusion, include poor thinking ability, lack of self belief and can lead to poor memory.

To open up your crown chakra use a clear quartz skull at the level just above the crown chakra, three double terminated lemurian quartz points with the central one facing downwards and the other two placed at right angles, also facing downwards. Place one large merlinite tumblestone under the central lemurian point and in line with the skull. The energy flows down through the crown of the skull, circulates inside then beams outwards through the eye sockets into the lemurian points which then rotates the energy at a speed that is just right for the client. The merlinite helps to capture the magic allowing the client to believe in themselves again. Using skulls in layouts amplifies the healing energy within that layout and broadens the area the crystals can cover.

Using crystals to relieve stress and anxiety

Stress and anxiety can be very debilitating and we can often feel that nobody else understands how we feel and so we cam become irritable and are often misunderstood. To relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety hold a Lapis Lazuli Sphere or egg during stressful times allowing all your worries to enter the stone you are holding. Another way would be to lie or sit in a quite space and surround yourself with 7 Lapis Lazuli Stones and 7 Clear Quartz points on the floor. Have the Lapis Lazuli Stones furthest away from you and the clear quartz points on the inside with the pointy end facing away from you and towards the Lapis Lazuli Stone. This directs the stress and anxiety away from you and into the stones. Be sure to cleanse the stones after your session.

Using Crystals in Gem Waters and Elixirs 

Crystals can be used in so many ways. We create crystal waters and gem elixirs from our crystals, blend them with spring water and add essential oils to create a wonderful fragrance. You would normally get about 100 sprays from a 60ml bottle and so should last you quite a while. Below we have given you some tips on how you can use them.

We can all pick up negative energies within our aura simply be someone being spiteful or nasty to us. Someone sending jealous thoughts may leave residual negative energy which can lead to deeper issues if not dealt with. Most of us can shrug off this sort of energy, but from time to time we take it on board and keep it with us. Aura sprays help to keep our energetic body clean and free from this sort of unwanted energy and thus allow our bodies to function at their optimum pace.

Crystal Cleansing Mist: Spray into each room including the corners to rid your home of negative energy; spray about 2 foot above your client following a healing session, allow the mist to gently fall into the aura, cleansing and grounding them at the same time.

Angelic Love Mist: Just spray 6 - 8 mists into the room or therapy space to evoke your angels or attract love into your life.

Crystal Calming Mist: Spray into the air in front of you, then walk through the mist before going anywhere where you know you may become stressed.

Crystal House Blessings Mist: Spray into the air close to the front and back door to balance the energies as you and your guests enter and leave your home

Energizing Mist: Spray into the air and walk through the mist to re-energize your system quickly. Works well if you have been zapped by someone unknowingly draining your energy when you were in their company.

Hematite is sometimes known as the stone of the mind. It is an excellent grounding stone and is exceptionally good for anaemia as it stimulates the absorption of iron. It is also thought to be good for O.C.D., anxiety, leg cramps, Reynaud's Disease and poor circulation. It helps you organize the mind so is good for anyone who has to do mathematics.

It is believed by some that Hematite is a magical stone that can spirit away illness when placed on the body and has become a firm favorite with healers. It has a very strong connection with blood and the circulatory system and is therefore the crystal to use for muscle cramps. Muscle cramps are generally short sharp painful spasms brought on by our muscle fibres contracting. These spasms can happen in the cold if you have poor circulation or after you have given your muscles a workout. This is due to the build up of lactic acid within the muscles.

Carry hematite with you at all times if you are prone to muscle cramp. When you feel the spasm starting, hold the crystal in your hand and set your intent that the energy from the crystal will direct itself to the area of the cramp and release any tension within those particular muscles. Then place the stone on the affected muscle and wrap your hands around the stone and body part for a period of approx 5 - 10 minutes or until your intuition directs you otherwise. The crystal will ease the pain and reduce the likelihood of it repeating

Step inside an egg. 

Egg shaped crystals can contain and shape energy. The top or more pointed end can be used in reflexology or acupressure. Eggs symbolize birth or re-birth and are frequently seen as fertility talismans. They can also encourage growth and new beginnings. Eggs are extremely tactile and are just the right shape to hold in your hands during meditation or when relaxing. Holding the egg will allow it to release its healing energies into your aura. Eggs are also useful within healing to detect and re balance blockages within the body as a whole. Choose a gemstone that relates to your needs at any one time. Keeping a number of these in a bowl make a great talking point for your guests.

As eggs signify rebirth, hold your egg in your hand, close your eyes and visualize it getting bigger and bigger until it is large enough for you to step inside. You may have a small door in your egg that you can open and step through or you may see the walls become as thin as a soap bubble allowing you to just melt through into the center. When inside your egg you are fully protected. You may also see a fountain inside your egg into which you can stand, which will cleanse away any negativity and any feelings that no longer serve you. See yourself stepping out of the fountain and drying off inside the egg before stepping back out of your egg, fully protected and a completely new you.

Balancing your mood with Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is another of my favorite stones. It is a beautiful pink stone and is known as The Stone of Unconditional Love. It is a delightful stone for children as they give love freely, its only as we get older we sometimes forget how to love. This stone both attracts love and teaches us to love ourselves. It is a joy to have around and it is good to keep small chunks of it scattered around your home to infuse this feeling into your entire surroundings. Rose Quartz is amazing at balancing energies, emotions and moods. We can all get moody at times and carrying or wearing this beautiful stone will help to balance any variations in mood.

Just out of interest, we had a lovely lady come into the shop one day who was an animal communicator. Living on a farm we expect the odd mouse but at that particular time we were catching about three to four a day. It was obviously troubling us as we kept catching them and letting them go in the nearby fields but they just kept on coming back. We spoke to the customer about it and on communicating with our mice, she found out that they simply adored our crystals, especially the mounds of Rose Quartz that we had in store. Although quite touched by this, we felt it may be off putting for customers if they saw one of our four legged little friends scurrying around the shop. We asked our customer to talk to the mice, and she said that if I was prepared to put some Rose Quartz outside for the mice and tell them that it has been put there especially for them, they may not be inclined to come in. I have to say that at first I was skeptical and felt a little silly stood outside talking to the mice I could not see. However we put the Rose Quartz outside in the courtyard for them and I was and am still amazed that it worked! This was well over a year ago now and we have not been bothered by our furry friends on that scale since. This is a true story and the next time you come to visit us, have a look for the lump of Rose Quartz in our Court Yard.

If you are feeling particularly upset, moody, emotionally unstable or just having a sulk over something. Sit and hold a natural chunk of Rose Quartz in each hand for about 5 minutes. Let the pure love of the Rose Quartz Vibrations simply wash over you. Feel the energy simply soothe away irritations and regulate your mood filling you with joy and a positive attitude. Use your stones again and again whenever you feel the need.

Looking Good Whilst Improving your Health

Wearing pendants is a simple and easy way to absorb the wonderful healing properties of crystals on a day to day basis. Its good to have a selection of pendants at hand so that you can wear the one that you need on any particular day. People ask us if the chain length is of importance. Our thoughts on this are that if you want to allow your crystals to work on your throat chakra during the day, you would require a 16 to 18 inch chain. However if you were wanting your crystal to work more on your heart chakra then wear a 20 to 22 inch chain. Where the attention goes - so the energy will flow In other words if you are thinking about your foot for example and you are wearing a Smokey Quartz pendant, if you think of your foot whilst touching your pendant, your attention is on both your pendant and your foot and so the energies will merge. Job Done!

Keep a bowl of medium sized tumblestones on your dressing table. Each morning pick up a different stone. You will intuitively choose the one you need for the day ahead. Place the tumblestone inside a tumblie cage. If you have difficulty getting it into the cage, you may well have chosen the wrong one. Don't fight with it, choose another stone. You will probably find that it goes into the cage with no problems what so ever.

Balancing your Chakras

Chakra comes from the Sanskrit word meaning wheel or to spin. When our chakras are all spinning in harmony with each other it allows the body to work at its best. Blockages and disturbances in these areas can lead to our physical organs becoming in unbalanced and in turn lead to a physical dis-ease. There are seven major energy points that align the center of the body and run along the line of our spines. One easy way of ensuring your chakras are in balance is to lay stones on those particular areas. All Chakra items sold today will come with a simple instruction sheet on how to do this. When all your chakras are balanced and are spinning in harmony, it allows for the correct transference of energy to keep you going all day and places your body in a state that will allow it to begin healing itself.

Spray some Chakra Balancing Mist into the air and walk through the mist allowing the spray to enter your aura and balance all your chakras at once. To ensure they remain balanced throughout the whole day, wear any piece of jewellery that contains all the chakra stones.

Shield Yourself with Black Tourmaline

Tourmaline is a beautiful black stone with wonderful protective energies. It has the ability to act as a mirror and reflect negative energies back to its source. However it is preferable to set your intent that your piece of Black Tourmaline will disperse the negative energy rather than reflect it back to it's source. This allows us to raise the worlds positive energy instead of recycling the negative energy that is already roaming around us.

Wear Black Tourmaline around your neck to protect yourself from picking up the negative energies of others, place a piece on your desk to protect yourself from work colleagues and place a chunk outside your back and front door of your home.

It is also good for depression and is thought to increase fertility.

Bring good luck with Elephants

Elephants have been a symbol of Good Luck for centuries. There are always times when we feel we could do with that little bit of extra good luck and we are frequently asked which crystals are good for this. You could choose a particular crystal which we feel would be appropriate such as New Jade, Merlinite, Moldavite, Black Jade or Agate to name but a few or you could choose a particular talisman such as the elephant to do the same job.

It does not matter which crystal you choose your elephant in as long as you face it with it's trunk pointing towards the door of your room. If you have two doors in your room, choose the door which is nearest the front of your home. You also need to choose an elephant with an upturned trunk to signify an upturn in your fortunes.

Place an elephant in your money corner of your home which is the far left hand corner when you stand with your back to the door. Again, if you have two doors, you would stand at the door towards the front of your home. Placing an elephant in this corner will enhance your financial good luck.

Experiencing the Energy and Protection of a Sphere

A sphere is a crystal that is completely round allowing the energy to emit in all directions. These shapes are ideal for infusing your area or space with the energies of the particular crystal you choose. Crystals that are formed in the shape of a sphere symbolizes the Universe within us. It represents self containment and wholeness with no beginning and no end. One of the most amazing crystals for me is the Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz was first named by the Greeks as Krystallos which means 'Clear Ice'. Natural Quartz Spheres have inclusions, natural fractures, veils, cracks, crackles and phantoms which give the look of frozen water.

It is these natural markings that can lead someone who does not have a great deal of knowledge about crystals to misleadingly think that they are broken or damaged. To crystal lovers, it is these markings that allow for hours of crystal gazing, always finding new markings within the natural stone to enchant the imagination and stimulate your intuition.

It is the natural fractures and cracks that refract the light into beautiful spectrums of light known as rainbows. Rainbows within a Quartz Sphere bring hope, promise and optimism of a renewed life. Whilst the outside of the sphere has been polished to near perfection, the true beauty of the crystal comes from within the irregularities of the crystalline structure. This can also remind us that many people will often want to portray themselves as being almost perfect on the outside whilst being broken on the inside due to emotional hurt or grief. But if we look at ourselves a little deeper, we see that there is much beauty within us. It is the issues we have had to deal with internally which make us who we are. Clear Quartz spheres allows us to see beyond the outer skin and reminds us to let our inner self shine and allow the rest of the world to see our true beauty within.

To experience the energy or protection of a sphere. Hold it in your hand then close your eyes. Visualize the sphere getting bigger and bigger until it either absorbs you into it's midst or you can step into it. Whilst inside the sphere you can absorb all it's fantastic energy and be protected by its outer skin. When you have had enough, simply visualize it getting smaller again or step out of it.

Ease Backache with Selenite

Selenite is a pure white stone which brings clarity of mind and opens the crown chakra. It is a very calming stone instilling a deep sense of peace and can be used to detach entities from the body. Selenite heals the spinal column and realigns the spine. It is a good choice for epilepsy as it guards against fits. It is also said to be good for enhancing concentration, encouraging study, P.E.T., S.A.D., and reduces stress levels.

My favourite uses for Selenite are for both removing negative energy form the aura by using a flat Selenite wand or for realigning the spinal column. The way we live today and the jobs we do, often have us sitting for long periods of time at a computer or with one on our laps. This is not a good position for our spines and frequently leads to us experiencing backache. Having a piece of Selenite to hand is a good first aid for our poor aching spine. By placing Selenite around you, it will to help ease general backache and remove negativity from your aura. Selenite is also refracts the light, by placing a sphere or angel mountain on a light box to create a rainbow of colours into your living space to help balance your chakra system.

Place 7 small tumblestones in a line under your bed or mattress. This will help realign your spinal column and help repair any damage done throughout the previous day setting you up for a new dawn when you awaken.

Bringing Positive Energy into your home

Cathedrals are expensive but are well worth the investment due to the joy they can bring to the owner. They bring an amazing energy to your home, work place or healing rooms. If we consider the amount of energy that come come out of one Amethyst or Citrine point and then multiply by it by the numerous points within these beautiful specimens, it is just mind blowing. Not only do they make impressive focal points to a room, but they are a fantastic way of charging your jewellery and smaller crystals. Prices can vary for Cathedrals as it depends on the quality of the crystal, the weight and the area in which it was mined. It is becoming harder and harder to obtain good quality cathedrals, each of ours was hand picked and their energy has been charged constantly by the healing energies of all the other crystals and the love within Spirit Walker itself.

Place a Salt Lamp next to your Amethyst or Citrine Cathedral to have it sparkle as soft glow from your salt lamp merges with the energy of your Cathedral. Place your jewellery inside your cathedral overnight to recharge.

Dowsing for Lost Items

Dowsing with a pendulum can be fun. As well as a major healing tool for therapists, anyone can use a dowsing pendulum to connect to your higher self to find lost items. You first need to ask your pendulum for a sign for yes, then a sign for no. Once you have established these two basic factors, you can then find anything that you have misplaced.

Start by first asking if your lost item is in the house. If you get a yes, you can then go from room to room asking if this is the room that your lost item is hiding in. If you get a no, simply move onto the next room in your house, if you get a yes, you can then break down the room into sections and repeat the process until you find your lost items. When using a pendulum to answer questions, it is always best to ask one that can be answered with a simple yes or a no.

 Use a dowsing pendulum to find your keys or mobile phone next time you misplace them. Be sure to keep one in your bag or pocket to connect to your higher self at any time of the day.

Easing Physical Pain with Carnelian

Carnelian is a wonderful high energy crystal which is believed to be useful at removing blockages and dissolving physical pain. It is particularly useful for neutralizing the pain associated with conditions such as muscular pain and neuralgia. Physical pain is the result of the sensory nerve endings being stimulated and communicating pain with the brain via the nervous system. This is often due to an injury to the physical body, but can also be a result of a blockage or an imbalance in the body's energy systems such as the chakras or meridians. Carnelian is thought to help unblock the effected area and thus help to restore harmony allowing the body to return to a state of well being.

Disolving your worries with Apophyllite

Apophyllite has the ability to dissolve negative thought patterns and worries. Even the most positive of us can have worries from time to time, but it is when we allow these worries to build up that anxiety and stress can take hold and lead us to keep hold of negative and unwanted energy. This negative and unwanted energy can inhibit the natural flow of energy passing through the subtle energy systems of the body and our chakras. If not released, it can lead to a physical illness in the parts off the body associated with the blockages. Keep a small piece of Apophyllite close to you to help dissolve the minor worries before they take hold and become something major.

Keeping Fresh with Aqua Aura

Aqua Aura has to be one of my favorite stones of all time. Some would say that I say the same thing about every crystal I talk about, maybe they are right as I simply adore crystals. Aqua Aura gets its dramatic blue colour from Clear Quartz being dipped in Gold in an alchemical process. This combination of both crystal and precious metal creates a high energy master healer which is ideal to increase the life force and preserve vitamins and minerals in both the body and certain foods such as fruit and vegetables.

Aqua Aura is a wonderful stone to wear around the neck as it works on the throat chakra. When you combined with it's ability to keep things fresh looking, it is a great choice to wear when you have a long day and need to be looking good all day long.

Keep an Aqua Aura crystal in your fruit bowl to keep all your fruit fresh and a point or cluster in the fridge with any points or terminations facings the food you want to preserve.

Secret Weapon Against Stress

Thumbstones are light, slim and have an indentation so that you can rub your thumb over it when you need to absorb the energies of your crystals. They not only make great gifts when put into a little keepsake pouch but can easily slip into a pocket allowing you to rub them in times of need without anyone knowing what you are doing to gain that additional calm that may be needed. We all have times of added stress in our lives and these little stones can be a lifesaver.

Keep a crystal that is good for relieving stress such as Lepidolite, Amethyst or Blue Lace Agate to name but a few, in your pocket when you are walking around the shops doing the weekly shop. When you find yourself getting irate with the queues of people, simply put your hand into your pocket and stroke your chosen stone.

How to create a positive chi

Swarovski crystals create a wonderful energy anywhere, but especially in your home and car. They are not as powerful as a natural quartz and thus are quite safe to leave in direct sunlight. They do however amplify and lift the energy within a space or room. As the suns energy filters through the window, the crystals raise this energy or chi making the whole space come alive. As the crystals spin or turn in the light it refracts the sunlight making prisms of colour and creating rainbows throughout the room. As the crystals move slightly in any slight breeze, so it moved any stagnant or negative chi around the room creating a fresh feeling as though your rooms have had a spring clean. All our crystals come with a window hook. Simply place this in the middle of a window towards the top of the pane of glass.

Hang one of the angel rainbow makers from the ceiling over your bed. When the light catches it, it will send healing rainbows throughout your room and help to balance your chakras at the same time. If you choose an angel rainbow maker, you can also ask your angel to protect you during the night.

Gem Trees make wonderful gifts and are often called 'The Wish Tree'. Wish Tree's have been used for centuries in homes and offices to signify a steady profit and everlasting support. It is believed if you write down your wish on a piece of paper and then toss them towards the tree. If your paper hits the tree it will ruffle the branches and your wishes will be delivered. Another idea is too ask for your wish in your mind and then take a deep breath and let it out slowly into the tree, thus breathing life into it's branches and leaves. Then give your tree a little shake every day until your wishes are delivered. The tale behind the gem tree's is that a heavenly fairy called Shang Ziyie, traveled to earth with the wish to marry a local villager by the name of Chooi Wen Lui. Because they had very little money, the heavenly fairy created a magic tree which created coins. The tree provided the family with a means to survive. The tree helped all those that gave it a shake.

Place a wishing tree in your financial corner of your room, which is the far left when standing with your back to the door to increase your wealth.

It is a stone with immense healing qualities that aids meditation, increases spiritual awareness and advances your intuition. By using your intuition, it allows us to make the correct decisions in life. Often we are so busy with day to day life, that we can ignore the little nudges our intuition gives us and end up making the wrong decisions for us. Thus we find ourselves on a path that we did not intend to take. When you start to listen to your intuition, your mind blends with your spiritual side. It is known as one of the master healers and would be a good choice for anyone with asthma, addictions, headaches, phobias, miscarriage, and menopause or pre menstrual tension and is also a good choice for stress and anxiety and is useful for sending out absent healing. Amethyst also strengthens the immune system following illness and is thought to improve hearing.

A salt lamp is suitable for use near televisions and computers, around smokers, in offices, in therapy rooms to promote relaxation and healing. A salt lamp will Negatively charge the air that you breath whilst at the same time give off a gentle heat.

Crystal Skulls

Many people are put off by skulls and as they have been given a lot of bad press in years gone by. However it remains a fact that without our own skull, we could not survive. It protects the most vital part of our body - our brain, and without our brain, we cannot function. If it protects such a vital part of us, why then should we have cause to fear them. At Spirit Walker, we use skulls for healing. A small skull is frequently placed about 12 to 18 inches above the head. Healing energy is then channeled down through the crown of the skull where it circulates within the outer surface of the skull itself. It builds up energy as it rotates before emerging through both eye sockets like two strong torch lights, showering the client with a highly charged up healing energy.

Place in a room of a person who is unwell with the skull facing the person who is in need of the healing. It can be on the other side of the room or on a bedside table.
