Rainee's Crystal Blog: Rose Quartz - November 2017

by Rainee Osborn

     Rose quartz comes in different shades of pink, mostly opaque with a bit of translucence. Rose quartz emanates a powerful, yet gentle, loving energy: the healing energy of unconditional love. It’s high vibration of harmony, love, happiness, warmth and tenderness can enhance any relationship, but the journey of healing starts with learning to accept unconditional love for yourself and enhancing our efforts to learn to love others unconditionally. The results of this shift include: greater clarity and discernment, emboldened self-esteem and self-worth, improved emotional health, and restored inner peace, as we strive for enlightenment.     

     Rose quartz connects with and gently opens the heart chakra. Its flow of unconditional love assists us in forgiving ourselves and others for past mistakes. Freeing us up, to let go, of all that fear, pain and regret that doesn’t serve us. This allows us to heal completely from loss, past traumas or a “broken heart”, transforming us to be more open, loving and present in current relationships. Rose quartz can help us find our true love by healing hurts and raising our vibration, clearing the way for our soulmate to be drawn to us. 

     Through its calming and soothing effects, rose quartz can reduce stress, anxiety and depression.  It can release unexpressed anger, jealousy, guilt, resentment and grief.  Strengthening us, to deal with challenging people, with compassion and to overcome difficult situations.

     Rose quartz can ignite our passion within, stimulating our imaginations, opening us to higher thoughts that create new ideas and new ways to solve old problems. This gentle stone leads us to step into new ways of being and allows us to find greater levels of success, as we move beyond our blocks and become more receptive to success and prosperity.

     A great way to keep rose quartz energy with you, wear rose quartz jewelry. A pendant that lies close to the heart can be particularly effective. A small stone can be slipped into a pocket, your bra or under your pillow. You can place a collection of stones in a bowl or use crystal points in your environment, to both attract and dispense loving energy in you space. A rose quartz candle holder or lamp can be nourishing to the environment. Choose the method that speaks to you, always trusting your intuition!

     Rose quartz needs to be cleansed when you purchase it and periodically as it is used. Cleaning it more often, when it’s used for emotional healing. Rose quartz can be cleansed under running water, with sage or sage sprays, in a bowl of salt crystals or using cleansing stones such as selenite, citrine, or kyanite.

     To re-energize rose quartz, leave it in the moonlight overnight, as sunlight can cause the stone to fade. I learned this the hard way, experience.

     Rose quartz vibrates with the most powerful force on earth...LOVE. It is a love that is capable of bringing greater happiness, restoring relationships and of healing all that it touches.  Who couldn’t use a little more of that in their life?

Scorpio New Moon
Scorpio New Moon

November 12, 2018

The days leading up to this New Moon have been full of change. And indeed, change seems to be the name of the game for the next 28 days. We’re dealing with a lot of discomfort right now. It’s never helpful to blame the planets -- that’s a surrender of power we cannot afford. It is helpful, however, to understand the ways they reflect what’s going on, connecting us to the archetypal realms which offer insight and guidance. At the collective level, there are some things that are in massive dying processes right now. Distortions of power. Manipulations and exploitations of bodies and hearts. The veil is so thin we’re no longer able to pretend it’s even there. It can be pretty difficult to know how to breathe, let alone act, in that level of chaos. Scorpio knows the way through, though. Scorpio is ferocity all grown up and made wild and fierce with remembrance of constant evolution. In October of 2017, Jupiter entered Scorpio for its 13 month tour through the depths. Jupiter teaches us about truth, belief, intuition and expansion. In the sign of Scorpio, it can magnify fears and emotional residues, especially when it comes to themes of sex, power, death and anything hidden. This New Moon sees Jupiter in the last degree of Scorpio, magnifying all we’ve learned in the past year.

Obstacles: Warnings or Tests?
Obstacles: Warnings or Tests?

November 05, 2018 2 Comments

The world’s collective wisdom about addressing life’s obstacles is tremendous. And yet, day to day, we seem unable to answer these deceptively simple questions: Am I on the right path? Am I doing the right thing? Sometimes, it seems the world has conspired against us. Maybe on the way to that new job interview, every light we come to turns red, and every door seems to close, then we get in a fender bender. Or when we date someone new, our friends yell at us, our parents chastise us, we lose money, things break and fall apart. After a long day, it seems like the universe couldn’t have made it any more clear that we were heading in the wrong direction. Then we wake up the next morning, and our current job seems so boring and pays so little that there has to be a better alternative, and so-and-so’s “good morning” message to us was so sweet, how could we not go on another date with them?

Rising into Fall by Ananda Farm Manager Zach Abbey

"I wonder how it is that people's philosophies have come to spin faster than the changing seasons." Masanobu Fukuoka, author, One Straw Revolution Well, the season has officially shifted. The days, getting shorter. The big leaf maple trees, dropping their magnificent, big leaf maple leaves, all over the farm, and all over western Washington. The mornings alternate between moderate and near frosty temperatures. Just ask momma goat and her morning milker in the lower field! The Foghorns in the Saratoga pass often echo throughout the early hours, giving amplification to the magical mist which fills the air all around, before giving way to vast blue sky of the afternoon, and the blissful hue of golden hour in the early evening. A perfect time to visit the alpacas and bench on sunset hill.
