It facilitates awareness, encourages emotional expression and assists in the elimination of pain and rage. It strengthens positive character traits by removing selfishness, rude behaviour and greed. Howlite also helps one to become aware of one’s goals in life.
Blue Aventurine is a gentle stone that resonates from the mind to the heart, working calmly, rationally, and steadily. It is a stone of self-discipline and inner strength, assisting one in making clear decisions and sticking by them. It promotes taking full responsibility for one’s life, relationships and experiences, while lending the support needed to empower change when the current reality isn’t working.
It helps calm and relax fiery emotions, allowing one to be less affected by external influences and to be more in control and at peace within oneself.
Moonstone holds the power of mystery and is foremost a talisman of the inward journey, taking one deep into the self to retrieve what is missing, the parts of the soul left behind or forgotten, then brought to light. Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon, an amulet of protection for travelers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy and a path to wisdom. Moonstone calms and encourages, teaching us the natural rhythms of life. It opens the heart to nurturing qualities as well as assisting in the acceptance of love. It is the stone of love and eroticism and a fertility crystal.
The name Rudraksha comes from Hindu mythology and means the eyes of Shiva. It is a very good support for someone who is constantly on the move and who eats and sleeps in various places, because it creates a cocoon of your own energy. It also acts as a shield against negative energies. It is said Rudraksha increases general awareness, calms the central nervous system, helps to quiet the mind and frees it from negative thoughts. It is believed to be cooling when worn against the skin and increases energy and stamina while providing rejuvenating qualities.
