What do you feel when you look at this crystal? It’s soft shades of wavy blue invite a calmness, a stillness within the mind, within the emotions. It invites us to just be, without engaging in troublesome thoughts or emotions.
Energy in Medicine
How many of us can say with absolute truth, that they are calm in all possible senses of the word? It’s easy to be agitated in today’s world, if not with the ‘political’ happenings, then it will be with the increased energies flowing down onto our planet, helping us rise in consciousness.
But apart from that, we are often do a very good job on our own. We worry about things, often over things that we have absolutely no control over. I remember being told at the start of my spiritual journey that something like only five to ten percent of our worries are real and valid. The rest are about things that never happen or are about the past and can’t be changed anyway. That’s a lot of worrying needlessly.
Worry’s close cousin, circling thoughts is another biggie. That constant replaying a situation in your mind, if only I’d done it this way, if only I’d said something, or not said that thing. That’s living in the past essentially. That, whatever it may have been is now done and dusted. Circling thoughts may be a case of playing out in your mind a possible scenario you envisage, either an event you would like to happen, or an event that you’re expecting to happen. It’s a way of controlling whatever the scenario may be. Regardless of what is it, it’s a future event and has not happened yet. Having said that, sometimes this planning can serve us well. If we’re going for a job interview, practising our talk can give us confidence, or if you know there could be a confrontation, it can be good to get your thoughts organised in your mind. But otherwise, this going over, and over, and over does us no good at all
All we have is now, right now, this moment. And we can choose to be calm in that moment, in fact, moment by moment. It is possible to train our minds to be still, to not have these periods of worry taking up so much of our headspace that it’s difficult to be aware of our intuition. When the mind is quiet, our intuition can be heard.
By having a crystal healing session, you will be calmer within yourself, experience stillness and be more peaceful within your being. The continuous mind chatter will fade away. By continuing to work with crystals and having crystal healing, worry becomes a thing of the past.

Blue Lace Agate is a banded chalcedony which is part of the quartz family. Agate in general is a family of crystals of different colours and it is said to have originally been found in the River Achates in Sicily, from where it gets its name. The river is now known as Drillo River.
