Crystals and Astrology

In traditional lore the healing qualities of minerals, or the healing crystals, generally remain subjective. Yet as the symbolic meaning of the crystals became part of the collective unconscious, their psychological or psychic qualities were thought to have an effect on our mind and body. As a crystal healer myself the gemstones are my everyday must-haves. I use them for daily healing and depends on the planetary ruler of the day and my need I carry associated crystals, most of the time I wear them in form of pendant or bracelets. I also use crystals to cleanse the aura of myself and space around me. In the past I perform crystal healing therapy on my clients, usually I would perform chakra clearing / balancing. Now I have spent more time on essential oils and tarot readings. Still crystals are always a part of me and they come in very handy whenever I need an extra boost of mojo to amplify sending positive energies to someone.

There is a direct link between crystals and astrology, since the Sun, Moon and Stars, as well as the Earth are all rocks. Crystals are also called the indigo children of heaven and earth. One reason attributable to the mineral facilities of healing is their ability to transmit and absorb light from the Sun. One interesting fact I learned is that there is a very potent link between human beings, the Earth and the Sun. The Earth’s equator inclines 23 ½ degrees towards the Sun in its orbit around the solar disc; this reflects the same inclination of the human heart towards the left side of the body also at 23 ½ degrees. Our human design is not coincidence. There is a direct link with the Sun, the Earth and the human heart. In astrology the Sun is associated with the heart. Such glimpse of knowledge of the divine plan humbles me.

The colours of the crystals. The variance of colour depends upon absorption and transmission of light bringing them beauty and radiance. The geometry of the crystals defines the metaphysical properties of the individual piece. Planetary rulership of plants and crystals serves as a guide for selection, and ultimately choice must always rest with the intuitive understanding of the astrologer.

My interests are in the mineral kingdom (crystals), the plant kingdom (essential oils) and the kingdom of the soul (astrology and the metaphysics). All of them correspond to each other, with lifetime study I want to become a better holistic healer to heal people’s mind, body and spirit.

Colourful Superfood

Over the past few weeks I have been trying to see the ground aura colour of people around me. I failed like a flat tire. I couldn’t see colours glowing out from people’s body, just like I was trying too hard to see my Arch Angels earlier (now I can sense brightly Arch Angel Michael and my dad watching over me during my yoga sessions, where they always try to uplift me in my asana yoga poses).

The ground aura colour is our expression in this world, as well as a reflection of our health condition. I have learnt to use my crystal pendulum to dowse the aura colour. This method works for me even though it takes more steps to find out the colour.

Seeing our own aura colour or not, our aura can be improved by colourful food intake.  When our aura is healed to its natural size, colour and shape, we feel vibrant, healthy and honest to our true selves.

Red: energy.  Red food includes meat, beets, peppers, grapes and all red-skinned fruit.

Orange: emotions.  Orange food includes oranges, carrots, pumpkins, sweet corn and apricots.

Yellow: intellect.  Yellow food includes butter, egg yolks, grapefruit, melons and yellow-skinned fruits and vegetables.

Green: healing and balance.  Green food includes all green vegetables.

Blue: wisdom.  Blue food includes blueberries and plums.

Indigo: concern for others.  Indigo food includes grapes, plums, blueberries and blackberries.

Violet: spirituality.  Violet food includes aubergines, grapes, blackberries and purple broccoli.

May your life be filled with all vibrant colours of the rainbow.

The Archangels

Everyone has his awkward moment.  I just had one of those in my first angelic workshop.  I attended a psychic seminar without expectation.  The speaker was a psychic, apparently.  We chanted a bit, and used music to do some meditation.  It felt all fine to me until the speaker started to ask if we see an angel by our shoulder, or in front of us.  No, nothing.  Okay perhaps it was just me, though I believe most of us didn’t.  The most weird part was at the end when the speaker asked us to do a reading for the person (stranger) sitting next to us, and to let him know what message his angel would like to convey to him.  I was totally dumb founded!  I ended up saying something nice to the poor bloke next to me, he must know that I was bluffing!

I could read for my clients with astrological charts, tarot cards, oracle decks…always something with grounded study and methodology.  However I am not a clairvoyant and I could not read aura or angels.  Having said that, I believe in angels.  Perhaps I still need to develop my sensing capabilities, angels were mentioned all the time in the Old Testament.  So I did some research on angels.

According to Doreen Virtue, the exact number of archangels who exist depends upon which belief system or spiritual text you consult.  They help anyone, regardless of their religious or nonreligious background.  Her clairvoyance allowed her to encounter 15 different Archangels:

1 Archangel Ariel’s name means ‘lion or lioness of God’.   She oversees the elemental kingdom and helps in the healing of animals.  Call upon Ariel to help with the environment concerns, or to heal an injured wild bird or other animal.

2 Archangel Azrael’s name means ‘whom God helps’.  Azrael is sometimes called the Angel of Death because he meets people at the time of their physical passing and escorts them to the other side.  Call upon Azrael for your deceased or dying loved ones.

3 Archangel Chamuel’s name means ‘he who sees God’. Call upon Chamuel to find a new love relationship, new friends, a new job, or any lost items.  Once your new situation is found, he’ll you  to maintain and build it.

4 Archangel Gabriel’s name means ‘God is my strength’.  She’s the messenger angel who helps all earthly messengers such as writers, teachers, and journalists.  Call upon Gabriel to overcome fear or procrastination in communication.

5 Archangel Haniel’s name means ‘grace of God’.  Call upon this angel whenever you wish to add grace to your life.

6 Archangel Jeremiel’s  name means ‘mercy of God’.  Call upon Jeremiel if you feel stuck spiritually and to regain enthusiasm about your spiritual path and divine mission.  He provides comfort for emotional healing.

7 Archange Jophiel’s name means ‘beauty of God’.  She is the patron archangel of artists who helps us see and maintain beauty in life.  Call upon her before beginning any artistic project, and to clear out clutter from your environment.

8 Archangel Metatron’s name means ‘angel of the presence’.  Call upon him for any kind of assistance you may need with your children.  He helps youngsters open their spiritual awareness and understanding.

9 Archangel Michael’s name means ‘he who is as God’ or ‘he who looks like God’.  He is the archangel who releases the effects of fear from the planet and its inhabitants.  He gives all of us the courage to follow our truth and fulfill our divine mission.  Call upon Michael if you feel afraid or confused about your personal safety, or making a necessary life change.

10 Archangel Raguel’s name means ‘friend of God.’  He is often called the Archangel of Justice and Fairness and is the champion of underdogs.  Ask him for aid whenever you feel that you are being overpowered or manipulated.

11 Archangel Raphael’s name means ‘God heals’, and he is in charge of physical healings.  Call upon  Raphael for any injuries or illness related to yourself or another.

12 Archangel Raziel’s name means ‘secret of God’.  He is said to stand very near to God so he hears all the divine conversations about universal secrets and mysteries.  Call upon Raziel whenever you wish to understand esoteric materials.

13 Archangel Sandalphon’s name means ‘brother’, he is the archangel of music and prayer.

14 Archangel Uriel’s name means ‘God is light’, he brings light upon a troubling situation which illuminates our problem-solving abilities.  Call upon Uriel whenever you need to think clearly.

15 Archangel Zadkiel’s name means ‘righteousness of God’.  He is a great helper to students.  Call upon Zadkiel to help you remember anything.

Hopefully one day I will be able to up my psychic reading skills.  Thank you Angels, I know you are guiding me all the way with or without my knowing.  They are guiding you too.
