According to an Eskimo legend, the Northern Lights were once imprisoned in the rocks along the coast of Labrador. It is told that a wandering Eskimo warrior found them and was able to free most of the lights with a mighty blow of his spear. Some of the lights were still trapped within the stone, and thus we have today the beautiful mineral known as labradorite. To learn more about Labadorite please visit the Wonder of Crystals page, it is a beautiful stone a particular favourite of mine.

Lots of new pages of crystals, wands, spheres and healing sets, for you to enjoy on the website are now completed. Working with the right crystals placed on certain parts of the body, that vibration will actually help balance your own natural energy vibration. Working with crystals and not using them just, like we work with people, they give freely of their energy and vibration.

Their healing power is a gentle and non-invasive and a wonderful way to enjoy holistic healing with no side effects.
They can be used to promote recovery from addictions, heal the spirit, promote good health and even invoke, prosperity abundance and career success.

This is one of my favourite paintings Yellow Kidney of the Piegan. Taken from the historical photographs of Edward S. Curtis. The Piegan sought the supernatural powers they believed were contained in the land and in the animals. An animal would appear to them in a dream, providing the dreamer with instructions to obtain a particular power. The dreamer had to take objects, place them in a rawhide pouch, called a medicine bundle, and engage in specified rituals and songs. The most powerful of these was the beaver medicine bundle that the tribe used to attract buffalo.
A wonderful friend has compiled a video of my paintings and set them to a beautiful sound track please take a look and leave a comment the link is posted below. I hope you enjoy as much as I have it is as though the paintings come to life....Karen

Laser Quartz Wands
The Laser Wand Quartz is recognized as a long slender crystal with small faces compromising the termination. The crystal tapers inversely [i.e., from the base to the termination]. The angles of the sides of the crystals are curved, in many instances, rather than straight. It is said that all "wand" crystals were developed on Earth by other planetary beings; they are said to have developed not by growth, but via thought projection. These crystals have an intimate relationship with both inner and outer space. The use
of laser wands during meditation facilitates the establishment of a finer
communication with the other worlds, the crystalline world, and the inner world
of the self. These crystals radiate a loving energy and have been recognized as
a constant source of brilliant white light. When one holds a laser wand, the
energy tends to surround the body, providing for a protective barrier. The laser
wands often have unique etchings and/or markings on them. They were once used in
the healing temples of Lemuria, the markings indicating the records of
experiences "they have seen". They contain information with respect to the
healing methodology which has been proven successful over eons of time and
throughout the universe. They have been accessed during the meditative state and
have provided information concerning techniques utilized in Lemuria and on other
planets. The energy of the laser wand crystal is extremely well focused via the
small termination. It can be used to clear an area of negativity, to create
protective barriers, and to beam healing energy to the self or another. This can
be accomplished by holding the laser wand in the hand of preference and
directing the energy to flow immediately to the target; when producing
protective barriers, allow the energy to flow around the subject or object such
that the auric field is not damaged. Protecting the self with the laser energy
field can be accomplished in a similar manner, by directing the energy to
surround the physical body; it can also be accomplished by wearing or carrying
the laser wand. In these cases, when consciously desired, one tends to merge
with the environment, becoming disregarded and/or unseen. It facilitates a
magical portrayal, allowing one to step into a picture, becoming a painted
figure within the composition- a figure that has never, and will never, move. In
advanced healing practices, the laser wands can be used to open the chakras and
to perform psychic surgery. The wand assists in "surgically" removing attitudes,
feelings, and attachments which may be causing or may potentially cause
dis-ease. It should be noted that unless a person is willing to release the
thought patterns, concepts, and self-constructing emotional patterns or ties,
and to identify with a more positive self image, the patterns will, most likely,
return and the person will be required to learn further lessons. It has also
been used to facilitate shamanic healing via the process of removing [by
extraction] the unwanted condition from the physical form.
Today is overcast and raining and I was drawn to bring a little sunshine into the day with the beautiful Citrine Sphere.
Citrine is a lovely golden yellow colour and is known as 'The Merchants Stone' as it attracts financial wealth. It is also good for constipation, thyroid issues, bladder infections, diabetes, the female menopause and is said to also aid with digestion. Citrine has the ability to absorb, transmute, dissipate and ground negative energy so never needs cleansing making it an
excellent choice to protect your environment.
Spheres made from crystals have been acknowledged by many old style masters as creating a broad spectrum of good fortune vibrations. Citrine is actually an amethyst, except it has gone through long term heating process naturally. Thus, it had turned yellow from purple. It represent the power of the sun. In feng shui, yellow it the colour of wealth. It is for this reason that citrine has become more highly priced than amethyst. Citrine Gem is a potent symbol of wealth. Citrine creates wealth luck, fortune, prosperity and more pounds in your income. It also has the power to enhance one's self-esteem, amplify
motivation, activates creativity and confidence. The citrine crystal sphere is
best placed in living rooms to bring excellent yang energy and feng shui for
enhancing your wealth and abundance.
Moldavite When I wish to connect with higher life forms this is my Crystal of choice. To be used with respect and not to be held upons ones person for long periods of time.. Karen
Approximately 20 million years ago a meteorite shower fell on the Moldau Valley in Czechoslovakia, the result Moldavite. One of the rarest of crystals (even rarer than diamonds or emeralds) with a unique transparent green colour and a translucent hue.
Its origin is still under discussion, thought by many to be purely
extraterrestrial; a meteorite that has fallen to earth because of its chemical composition, yet others state the mineral is the result of fusion between a meteorite and the earth upon impact to specific earthbound mineral deposits, either way the mineral is at least partly due to extraterrestrial origin.
The Grail Stone, a stone that speeds up and enhances spiritual
transformation. It helps to balance the chakras and transmutes negative energy. It assists balancing the body and regulates the heart.

Deep blue in colour, Lapis lazuli is actually a combination of azurite, calcite and pyrite. It is prized as a stone that activates the throat and brow chakras.
Lapis lazuli offers mental reasoning and objectivity assisting the clearing of
emotional baggage. It also can be used as a focusing tool for meditation and dream analysis.
Lapis is one of the oldest spiritual stones known to man, used by healers, priests and royalty, for power, wisdom and to stimulate psychic abilities and inner vision. It represents universal truth.
Lapis quickly releases stress, allowing for peace and serenity. Placed
over the third eye, Lapis expands awareness and conscious attunement to the intuitive self, stimulating enlightenment and enhancing dream work. It permits spiritual journeying, and tapping into personal and spiritual power. Lapis provides a connection with dream forces that are working to both guide and counsel during altered states. [Melody, 370]
As a protection stone, Lapis Lazuli recognizes psychic attack and blocks it, returning the energy back to its source.
Lapis Lazuli is a visionary stone, bringing information to the mind in images rather than words. It can be a catalyst for higher awareness, and often aids those with past-life connections to ancient civilizations - Atlantis, Egypt, Peru, Sumeria and India, among others. Meditating with this stone can assist in recovering memories of those past lives, help regain lost knowledge from those civilizations, and inspire evolution in the current incarnation.
