A quick guide to choosing any crystal

Updated: Jan 30




Gems are composites of frozen interstellar light.

Though gems are created within the body of the Earth, they resonate with stellar points of origin throughout the galaxy, embodying energies that empower their healing properties. The gem is part of an extended influence of stellar light that forms the pathways for specific waves of creative intelligence to bring each celestial pattern into form. This is one reason that gems are powerful for specific chakras and astrological ameliorations, balancing, and corrections.


Your human, earthly, and cosmic nature become attuned with the higher evolutionary frequencies of the Earth, cosmos, and your soul’s blueprint. Life events become organized from an infusion of higher intelligence. The qualities of harmony, synchronicity, and attune allow for grace to come into your life.
