Crystal Power – Black Tourmaline & Ocean Jasper

I wanted to share with you a little something….a little experience I had today with crystals :)

Today my hubby wanted to go to the shops to buy some new work shirts and trousers in the sales. For me, going to the shopping centre is very draining, I tend to get really overwhelmed and irritable. Today I thought to myself, ‘no way is this going to happen’. I grabbed my hemp necklace and placed an ocean jasper and a piece of black tourmaline in it and said, ‘do your stuff!’. Well, 3 hours later, I still felt upbeat, and full of energy and I didn’t even realise we were in the shops for as long as we were.

PendantOcean Jasper helps to create feelings of joy and elevates your spirit while helping you to release any negative feelings. Perfect!! A great stone if you need a lift in energy

Black Tourmaline is known for its grounding energies and for helping to transmute any negative energies around you. It also encourages a positive attitude.

The combination of these 2 was just perfect for me today! So why not give it a try if you are going to be out and about in large crowds and find it a ‘wee bit’ overwhelming :)

Love, Deena xXx

New Moon, New Year 2014

As we are approaching the end of the year, 2013, the year of the water snake, we start to take stock of the year ahead and start to think of things that we would like to change, of how far we have come and all that we are grateful for.

This Snake year has been incredible and powerful. It has been about either guiding, nudging, pushing and/ or forcing us all out of our comfort zones.  It has been about fully shedding that which no longer serves us, that which no longer aligns with our heart, with our spirit, with our soul…..for me this year has been all about honouring myself, my soul which has made me make some really tough decisions. I have had friendships, partnerships end but I have also had friendships and partnerships thrive! In all of the decisions I have made this year, I have done it with the thought, “how does this sit with me? How does this feel in my heart, mid and gut?’ When all of these 2 have been together in harmony, I knew the decision no matter how tough was the right one. This year has taught me how to stand up for myself and not let people take me for granted…..
This year has also had some amazing moments! My youngest started school this year. He has absolutely thrived and loved every minute of it. My eldest has made a great group of friends and finally feels happy at school. I started my business Eternal Energy Gems! I was attuned to Reiki and am now a Reiki Practitioner. I have made some amazing friends and have reconnected with old ones. I saw one of my sisters who I haven’t seen in years. We celebrated my hubby’s 40th this year. When I think back of all of these amazing moments and feel so blessed and grateful for every single experience. Take a moment and think about your 2013. Think about or write down all of the things you are grateful for, all of the challenges and experiences you had, give thanks for them, for the lessons learnt and truly integrate them into your being.
2013-2014
So now that we have reflected on the year that was it is time to set our sites on the upcoming year, 2014. Now is the prefect time to start, it is time to plan your year ahead, time to write out what you want for 2014. Think about how you want to feel in 2014; what you want to achieve; what are the things that enrich your life and make it fulfilling and vibrant and make you feel rich?  When the New Moon is high in the sky, read these intentions out to the Universe, feel them, experience them as though they have already been fulfilled, claim them!! For 2014 the first new moon will be on the 1st Jan! How incredibly exciting and powerful!! How perfect for setting your intentions for the New Year.
New Moon 2014
Namaste, Deena xXx
