Crystals For The Run Up to Christmas

The Christmas cards are in the shops, there is an abundance of sparkly tinsel and fairy lights in the stores and mince pies are on trend. Yes, Christmas is around the corner and before you run to your room, pull the curtains on and throw yourself under the duvet, I have three crystals to lend a helping hand in the run up to Christmas. No, they will not carry your shopping but they will help you to get through it with considerable ease and grace.


Now don’t be waiting until Boxing Day to put your feet up and relax, there’s no fun to be had by chasing around at breakneck speed in the run up to Christmas Day with your shoulders around your ears.

Blue Calcite will encourage you to take things at a steady pace; it reminds you to fit in that much needed rest and relaxation that your mind and body desire in the run up to Christmas. It is like a breath of fresh air sweeping through your subtle bodies with its calming and soothing energies.

Goodwill towards all can sometimes fly out of the window, as we get closer to Christmas. People put themselves increasingly under pressure as they have a perceived mission to fulfil. Their tolerance begins to wear thin, patience evaporates and the energy around them starts to feel heavy. If you are susceptible to picking up on others vibrational energies, the type that may pull you down then Blue Calcite offers you a sponge like protection, it soaks up those types of energies so they do not have an impact you, they are gently shifted into a higher vibration.

This beautiful crystal imparts a sense of equilibrium, with its powerful energies it soothes frayed nerves and reduces the worries of an overactive mind. A crystal that offers composure to an agitated mind and body.


This high vibration crystal brings you right back into your heart, and that is what Christmas is about right? The giving and receiving of love.

So whether you are rushed off your feet or all neatly wrapped up in your own little bubble, Kunzite reminds you to sink deep into your heart and acknowledge those less fortunate. Those who are lonely or those perhaps who are overlooked, during what can be a hectic period. It prompts you to stop a moment, connect with the world so you may recognise and share with others the joy and deep love that resides within and around you during this time of year,

In the true spirit of Christmas, this gorgeous crystal reminds us how to connect on a heart level with others, offering them loving thoughts and words with a warm heart and much festive cheer.

And whilst you’re taking the time to offer others the gift of love you find that you too are embraced with feelings of joy, delight and a twinkling contented heart. This is the beauty of Kunzites and its gift to you, to share with others a blissful heartfelt lead up to Christmas.


If you have a lot to get through and a list as long as your arm and you can feel a major wobble coming on then grab one of these little beauties.

Rainbow Aura zaps you back into reality giving you the opportunity see things for what they really are; it helps you to focus on the essentials. This crystal balances your energies, so when you are feeling a bit out of kilter with all your Christmas to do’s it will quickly solve the problem by grounding you, providing you with that much needed strength and stamina.

If you really feel you need time out to escape from the whole situation then forget about long haul flights to distant shores, give yourself a Christmas gift and sit with one of these crystals, close your eyes and gently drift off to into other realms and dimensions. It will elevate your meditative state and merge those wonderful energies into your physical world

Whichever crystal you feel drawn to or have in your pocket over the next few weeks I hope it endows you with a smooth passage in the run up to Christmas

Wishing you a happy and most peaceful festive season.

Yes Halloween is around the corner where fancy dress,  broom sticks and pumpkins will hit many a wardrobe, cupboard and kitchen during the next few weeks.

People all over the world love to join in with Halloween celebrations, it is linked to Samhain (pronounced ‘sow’inn’) which is a very important date in the Pagan calendar.

Today Halloween is all about dressing up, partying or watching scary films, generally it’s just having lots of fun.  If you would like to add crystals into the mix whilst you are doing so, here are three to consider.

Carnelian is a fantastic crystal to help you co-ordinate all those to do’s, bringing with it a sense of warmth and passion whilst creating your desired Halloween masterpiece.


In the run up to Halloween you have been probably been very busy, your energies can become scattered when there is so much to do in so little time. One nice little aspect of Obsidian is that it will ground and stabilise your energies, so if you are feeling all over the place it will quickly connect you and your root chakra back to earth.

If you are planning any magical work on the night itself Obsidian will offer you strong psychic protection, acting like a mirror, it deflects any lower vibrational energies away.   It is believed that black Obsidian can provide the best psychic crystal cleaning service you could ever need.


On Halloween you want lots of light and positive energy around you, right?  Clear Quartz will deliver this in abundance.  If you are holding or going to a Halloween event have a Clear Quartz about your person, it will assist by adding brightness to your Aura and stimulating positivity in and around you and the event itself.

Crystals for Pain Relief


There’s no disputing it crystals are a valuable resource when it comes to pain and no matter how much we take care of ourselves, we all experience pain at some point in our lives to varying degrees, whether it be muscle pain, a joint ache or headache and migraines.

Underlying the pain there can be metaphysical reasons, consider perhaps that the pain you are experiencing is your body’s outward expression of that which needs to be resolved on an inner level.

Louise Hay and Lise Bourbeau have both written books on the connection between the manifestation of a physical ailment and the underlying metaphysical cause.

I have selected three crystals that most people own that can be utilised for pain relief. Many more crystals can be harnessed to assist in pain relief pain, as always I would suggest going with what you are drawn to at any particular time.


Experiencing joint pain for any length of time can have a detrimental effect on your lifestyle and leave you feeling weary.

Amethyst is a very common stone but one that is renowned for its strong healing and cleansing powers.  It is an excellent crystal to use for the relief of joint pain especially arthritis, it is also beneficial in reducing non-joint pain such as headaches and migraines too.

There are many ways to use a crystal to relieve pain and one method I suggest here is to leave an Amethyst crystal in some water for 12-24hrs then regularly apply the tonic to the area of joint pain.  If you have an empty roller ball bottle, you could re-fill it with the tonic and use as and when required.  Alternatively, if the joint pain is in your feet you may wish to put a few Amethysts into a bowl and soak your feet for half an hour.

Another way of using this crystal is by putting to good use your existing Amethyst jewellery, for instance use Amethyst bracelets for joint pain in the hands or a perhaps an Amethyst necklace for alleviating shoulder joint pain.  Having any Amethyst whether tumblestone or jewellery on or near the source of pain is ideal as it will reduce or block pain and soothe your nervous system at the same time.  It also may bring you some insight into the underlying metaphysical aspect of the condition.


Clear quartz is a master healer and a must have for your first aid box, it will be of huge benefit in assisting you in the relieving of pain for yourself and others.

Helping to alleviate all types of aches, pains and day-to-day ailments, Clear Quartz is a powerful crystal.  This stone is also utilised by crystal healers to accelerate the healing of broken bones whilst easing the discomfort and pain that during the healing process is typically experienced.

Clear Quartz has the capacity to lessen displaced energy and gradually return it to a time before experiencing the pain and discomfort.  Meanwhile it strengthens your aura releasing and unblocking any energy so to deliver the most optimal outcome.

If you have any quartz points or wands you can derive benefit from them by using the most blunt end first in an anti-clockwise manner over the area in question, then afterwards the point end in a clockwise manner.  This will initially cleanse and remove lower vibrations then re-energise and restore the area.

Try this method for 10 or 15 minutes a day for a couple of week and you should see positive results, remember it is always of benefit to cleanse your quartz after each session.


There are many reasons why we may encounter muscle tension, it is something many people experience whether around the tops of the shoulders or in the lower back area.

By selecting a smooth rounded Smokey Quartz tumble stone gentle rub in a soothing manner along the area where the muscle tension is most concentrated.  If you prefer you can also add a touch of massage oil too as this will help it to glide over the skin.

When using the crystal this way you will not only be soothing the area with a gentle rub but you will also be embracing the attributes of the Smokey quartz crystal by giving it the opportunity to gently dissolve and disperse any unhelpful energy that has accumulate in that area.

Try this too for any muscular spasms that you may be encountering, you can if you wish for a period of time tape the crystal on the area in question if comfortable to do so.  Remember though frequently cleanse your crystal if you continue to do this for any length of time.
