Healing Stones and Gemstones
 
 Healing Stones and Gemstones
For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have used the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages. On a cellular level, our bodies and quartz crystal are both made up of mineral silicon-dioxide, because of this, we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When crystals are placed directly on your body, they have a powerful vibration effect that surges from the crystal to you. According to the law of physics, thoughts direct energy and energy follows thought. 
 
 

Amazonite

If your mind is polluted with toxic negativity, clean it up with Amazonite. This stone will restore your spirit to its most serene state of being by eliminating your worries, self-doubts, and frustrations. Often, pain that we experienced in our past will create an energy block in our present. This block can manifest into a difficulty expressing yourself in relationships, or even into creative slumps at work. By flooding your heart and throat chakras with loving energy, amazonite opens you up to release that which has hurt you. Free of those energy blocks, you better express yourself in every area of life. That’s what makes this stone highly beneficial for artists. 

Amethyst

Amethyst is like a spa-day in a stone, it is the exact kind of relaxing energy that we could all use after a long day. Allow amethyst’s energy of contentment to sooth away the day-to-day stresses that keep you up at night. In working with the third eye and crown chakras, Amethyst indulges your intuitions. This not only means that amethyst will help your body give into innate desires like sound sleep and relaxation, but it will also work with your third eye to balance the mind with insightful solutions to problems. 

Apatite

Your appetite for life, creative endeavors, and passionate pursuits will feel nearly insatiable when overwhelmed by the exhilarating energy of Apatite. Working with the energy of this crystal helps you to not only recognize your ambitions but chase after them with a newfound vigor. Let the inspiration this stirs within you, find new creative outlets. 

 

Aquamarine

Use Aquamarine to ride the positive waves toward closure, major life changes, and a higher consciousness. The stress and fear that this stone washes away, leaves room peace and tranquility in their absence. Aquamarine protects the psyche from taking on dark vibrations and negative behavioral patterns. Easy is the essence of the smooth flowing energy of aquamarine. 






 
 
 
 

Carnelian

Carnelian is the life of the party. Creative and confident, the energy of carnelian motivates a rush of vibrancy within the sacral chakra to stimulate your inner star. Tapping into carnelian’s exciting properties will lend a sense of power that can prove especially beneficial for artists needing to break through creative blocks or those embarking on new projects + ambitions. Wear carnelian during a job interview to invoke the energies of opportunity and luck. With carnelian close, you’ll be sure to impress your prospects with your charm and vitality. 

 
 


Citrine

Derived from the French word “citron” meaning lemon, this crystal’s vibe is anything but sour! Sweet is the essence of this fortune flourishing gem. The sunny attitude of citrine cultivates energy that is fertile for growth. In working with the solar plexus chakra, citrine warms the core to radiate power, centeredness, confidence, and endurance throughout the body and mind. Citrine is unique because it is one of few stones that, rather than absorbing negative energy, clear it. It makes room for happiness and light so that the spirit is welcoming to a wide range of positive possibilities. 

Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz maybe a rock star among crystals, but it’s no diva—it shares its spotlight. For those whose spirit needs illumination, clear quartz brings clarity to shadows within the mind. The reason there is so much lore surrounding the Clear Quartz is that of how intensely it resonates with the body. A universal healer, it links to all chakras to provide balance and harmony. Its ability to be programmed for manifestation is unlike any other crystal. By elevating thoughts and perspective, it will help manifest your intentions like never before. 

 
 
 
 

Garnet

Not all energy has to come in a Venti-sized cup; reenergize the crystal way with garnet, and you’ll have all of the vitality without the impending crash. By arousing the chi, or life force, within the physical body, garnet encourages you to go out and smell roses. Seize the day and all of your potential with help of this stone for enhancing health, passion, and pleasure. 

 
 

Hematite

Hematite tells it like it is. If you’re spinning out of control or spending all your time going over things in your mind on constant replay, hematite is going to give you a reality check. It brings you out of your mind and backs down to earth. Hematite’s energy focuses on the body, and it teaches us to do the same. Rather than overanalyzing due to stress or anxiety, use hematite to connect to your root chakra so that you can stay grounded and just be. 

Jade

Jade is like that outfit you wear on first dates or that necklace you wear on job interviews—it always brings good luck. Through awakening a new outlook in the third eye chakra, Jade opens you up to prosperity and abundance. The wisdom that this stone can bring has been admired since ancient civilizations, and can still lend an insightful energy to your modern day problems. Through instilling a sense of peace and purity within the mind, jade guides the spirit until it has a clear vision of who you are truly meant to be. 

 


Labradorite

With the mystical energy of labradorite, sparks of neon will illuminate the path to your destiny. Labradorite is a stone of magic and curiosity. Wearing or holding Labradorite helps you tap into a higher state of consciousness. It’s a protective stone as well, so it will keep your energy body grounded while allowing you to explore the expanded states of the universe. By connecting to and healing all chakras, it boosts mental and spiritual power. Labradorite opens you up, forcing you to become self-aware enough to see what you want your true intentions to be. 

Lapis Lazuli

Realize your spiritual potential with the high vibrational energy of Lapis Lazuli. Full of the wisdom and awareness that this stone brings, your soul will be ready to embark on a journey of awakening. Strive toward enlightenment as you pursue your true destiny, and leave pettiness and stress behind. This is a powerful stone for broadening your understanding and should be used especially by those having issues with self-expression. 

 
 

Malachite

Tough love from a tough crystal, Malachite is the friend you go to when you need that unfiltered relationship advice. If some reason or another, something always seems to go wrong in your relationships, Malachite can cleanse the chakras and bring you to a realization of what’s not working. It’s one of the most powerful transformational crystals for the heart. The emotional balance it provides will encourage you to take the action you need to remove negative patterns and enhance your transformational energy. 

 

Moonstone

The milky radiance of this crystal represents tenderness and is believed to bring lovers closer together. Moonstone is a magical stone that connects you to your divine feminine and inner Goddess. It helps you unlock the energy of the Moon that resides within you to keep you in a more balanced state. Moonstone acts as a guide to help you do what’s necessary to become more balanced, healthy and in sync.





Onyx

Sometimes, whether in our work life or our relationships, it can feel like we’re walking a tightrope. Adopting the energy of Onyx lets you breathe easier, giving you the balance, confidence, and protection to take the next step. Lending you strength of mind, Onyx will help you to see what is weighing you down and release it from your life. By fortifying your decision-making capabilities, onyx encourages you to stop concentrating on the rope or the potential to fall, and instead look forward to the bright future ahead of you. 

 

Peridot

Skip being green with envy, and use the energy of Peridot to become green with abundance. Resentment doesn’t look good on anybody. Peridot helps you to ditch toxic emotions of jealousy, spite, and stress, and replace them with insight, confidence and a radiant sense of purpose. The beauty of this energy will shine through you, as it washes you with powerful cleansing properties that will leave you with a lighter, more pure essence. 



 


 
 
 


 
 


Rose Quartz

See the world through rose-tinted glasses by tapping into the universal love of rose quartz. This stone will open up your heart chakra to every kind of love that you need—whether it’s self-love, familial love, friendship love, love for humanity or romantic love. As a flush of compassion, happiness, forgiveness and peace pulses through you, rose quartz will assist you in ease your grip on toxic emotions. With this sense of release, your spirit can finally be free of petty negativity. 

 

Rutilated Quartz

As if filtering out negativity and psychic attacks through its complex network of needle-like rutiles, Rutilated Quartz ensures that only the purest vibes get through. If you’re prone to holding in frustrations or resentments, working with rutilated quartz may be just the energy you need to forgive and let go. While supportive, the energy of rutilated quartz will force you to bring issues to the surface so that they can be dealt with. That may sound intimidating, but rutilated quartz’s ability to help you better deal with conflicts also relieves the fear and anxiety you may have going into them. 

 
 


 

Smoky Quartz

Smoky Quartz isn’t the kind of energy that’s going to let you sit in a dark, stuffy room and pout. This crystal wills you to get up, draw the curtain to a positive light, and open the windows to let the air of negativity out. If something no longer serves you, smoky quartz gives you the clarity to let it go. Working with Smoky Quartz helps you to overcome negative emotions such as stress, fear, anger, jealousy, and even feelings of depression. Elevate your mood with this stone that helps to keep both feet on the ground, and remain balanced in any situation. 

 


 

Tiger's Eye

Tiger’s Eye gets its name from its amber hues, but its ability to bestow fierce focus and primal power only bolster its tiger-like reputation. This crystal helps you to see through a fresh set of eyes so that you can gain clarity on situations that have become blurry or confusing. Tiger’s eye shifts your outlook so that you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself. Is there a new hobby you’d like to try? A solution to a problem you haven’t considered? An aspect to yourself that you haven’t indulged? Tiger’s eye connects to the solar plexus and sacral chakras to ground you in the power you need to pursue those ventures. 

Tourmalinated Quartz

The pillars of tourmaline embedded within Tourmalinated Quartz remind us that we all have pillars of strength within us that we can lean on when we feel weak. With the clarity and energy amplification of quartz and the protection of tourmaline, you’ll feel a resurge of energy that will encourage you to conquer your self-sabotaging behaviors and thoughts. This stone is all about recognizing the power you have within yourself to solve or deal with any problem in your life. Tap into tourmalinated quartz when you need to harmonize your mind and spirit and attract the kind of luck and abundance that stem from making positive life decisions. 

 
 

Turquoise

Said by Native American cultures to be the bridge between heaven and Earth, Turquoise, known as the “Master Healer,” provides a path to your vibrationally highest self. Many Native American cultures believe that turquoise helps to connect the mind to the infinite possibilities of the Universe. As a throat Chakra stone, turquoise helps to foster honest and open communication from the heart. In working to protect and align the chakras, turquoise strengthens the entire mind and body in the process.

5 Birthday Proposal Ideas for an Unforgettable Engagement

5 Birthday Proposal Ideas

By Camryn Rabideau

When it comes to popular times to pop the question, the holidays usually get all the attention. But what better day to ask your leading lady to marry you than the one day that's dedicated solely to her? Yes, we're talking about her birthday!

There are so many romantic ways to propose on your girlfriend's birthday, ranging from an intimate dinner to a grand gesture. Here are five birthday proposal ideas that will help you come up with an unforgettable engagement plan.

1. A Birthday Dinner with Family

If your soon-to-be fiancée is close to her family, having them present for your proposal might make the occasion even more special. Plus, you can easily orchestrate a birthday dinner for your girlfriend without making her suspicious.

Choose her favorite restaurant and invite along her family, your family, and even a few close friends to celebrate the special moment. This is a great option if you want a simple yet incredibly meaningful proposal.

2. An Engagement Cake

You can use a birthday cake (or any other treat, like cupcakes or doughnuts) in your proposal, but be especially careful whenever there's food involved—we've all heard the horror stories about people accidentally swallowing expensive rings!

Instead of having the actual ring in or on the cake, ask the bakery to write "Will you marry me?" on top. The birthday girl will be in for a huge surprise when she goes to blow out the candles! You could also ask the bakery if they can create a frosting or fondant ring to adorn the cake, and bring out the real engagement ring during as a big reveal.

3. A Birthday Scavenger Hunt

Another cute option for a birthday proposal is to set up a day-long scavenger hunt to complete together. There are plenty of ways you can do this—take her to memorable spots from your relationship, go to all her favorite places, and give clues to different family members and friends.

When you reach the end of the hunt, that's when you get down on one knee and ask her to marry you. Since the location is planned out in advance, there's the perfect opportunity to have a photographer waiting to capture the moment.

4. A Purr-fect Proposal

Is there anything cuter than a proposal involving a dog or cat? If you have a pet, you can get them in on the proposal—it's guaranteed to put a smile on your lady's face!

One popular way to do this is to attach a message that says "Will you marry my dad?" to your pet's collar. When she sees the note, that's your cue to get down on one knee.

If you don't have a pet but you've discussed getting one, you can do this same proposal with a puppy or kitten. Talk about an epic birthday present! Just make sure you're both ready for the responsibility of caring for an animal.

5. A Grand Romantic Gesture

If you're the type of couple who likes grand, romantic gestures, go big for your birthday proposal. Think about your girlfriend's favorite activities, then plan a day that culminates in a grand gesture at the end.

Here are a few examples you can consider:

  • A hot air balloon ride at sunset
  • Hiking to a breathtaking vista
  • Horseback riding on the beach
  • Filling her apartment with red roses
  • Planning a romantic sunset picnic

Sure, these moments might seem a little cheesy, but a lot of the best proposals are! Start off with one of these birthday proposal ideas, and you can plan an amazing engagement that will double as the best birthday present ever.

5 Birthday Proposal ideas for an unforgettable engagement

5 Unique Honeymoon Ideas

5 Unique Honeymoon Ideas by Hearts on Fire

By Erica Curran

When planning a honeymoon, certain destinations naturally come to mind—Paris, with its unmatched flair for romance; Hawaii, with its bright sun and sandy beaches; Tuscany, with its world-class wine and breathtaking landscapes. And while most people would never turn down a trip to these incredible places, some might prefer to spend their first week as newlyweds somewhere a bit more unexpected. These five unique honeymoon ideas may not be the most obvious choices for newlyweds, but guarantee memorable experiences for any couple:

1. Unique Honeymoon Ideas: London

Sure, it's one of the most popular cities in the world to visit, but London isn't necessarily a honeymoon hot spot. However, London is an incredibly welcoming place for all kinds of couples with a range of interests. Do you love bonding over a memorable meal? Believe it or not, London boasts some of the most innovative chefs in the world. Is your ideal date a night at the theater? Book a hotel in Soho and take in its endless entertainment options. For a dose of culture, there are plenty of museums that you can stroll through hand-in-hand, and there are even some picturesque parks separate from the city noise.

2. Portugal

Affordable and easily accessible from most U.S. travel hubs, Portugal has been long overlooked as a European destination—but that's changing. Capital city Lisbon has stunning architecture, romantic restaurants, and winding streets that were made for wandering. There are also multiple overlooks with views over the city and little cafes selling wine and fresh pastries—perfect for whiling away an afternoon in the Portuguese sun. Nearby, Sintra is a picturesque village where you can live out your storybook fantasies. To the south, the Algarve region is home to some of Europe's most stunning (and underrated) coastlines. Wine lovers should visit the Douro Valley, and a stop in Porto is recommended whether you love port or you're just a fan of charming cities.

3. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Often forgotten in favor of resort-heavy Mexican destinations like Cancun, Tulum, and Cabo, San Miguel de Allende is a small city perched in the country's central highlands. With colorful buildings, cobblestone streets, and a vibrant art scene, this Unesco World Heritage Site is a natural choice for newlyweds. Take in the local cuisine, browse through the markets, and toast to your new life together with mezcal cocktails.

4. Savannah, Georgia

Nearby Charleston often tends to steal the spotlight, but Savannah is a worthy destination in its own right. Filled with leafy squares, diverse galleries, and memorable restaurants, the city seems to operate at a slower pace than the rest of the world. Like New Orleans, Savannah allows drinking on the streets in the historic district, which means you can take those mint juleps to go and enjoy them on a park bench while watching the world go by.

5. Anguilla

Just 16 miles long and three miles wide, Anguilla gets less attention than neighboring St. Maarten. A British overseas territory, the island is full of beautiful white sand beaches and turquoise water. There's an undiscovered, unspoiled feel to Anguilla, but you'll still find a few luxury resorts with award-winning chefs where you can base your honeymoon explorations.

When planning your honeymoon, don't be afraid to look beyond the obvious. Opting for unique honeymoon ideas can result in a more memorable—and just as romantic—trip that you'll be eager to share with friends and family when you return home.
