Summer has arrived.  If I can go outside at 8 o’clock in the morning with bare arms, that’s a good enough sign for me.  How about you?

During these warm, balmy days, we feel our sharp edges being worn down.  Everything is more relaxed; everyone has a smile on their face and the all is right with the world.

Energy in Medicine

Aventurine is all about balance. It’s said that we can’t have the highs without the lows, but wouldn’t you prefer for your days to be more balanced rather than living on a perpetual rollercoaster?  I used to live my life like that, and quite frankly, it’s exhausting.  Also, with a more balanced life, you are more in control of what is happening in your life.  That’s sounds good, right?

The softness that aventurine gives us is that it rubs off those brittle edges that we have at times.  For instance, when we feel uptight about something, or stressed over the kids, or work, or anything else that might be happening in your life right now, sitting quietly with a piece of aventurine will help.  Meditate with it too and see what it has to tell you about what it’s good for or how it can help you right now.

How loud is your self-talk, does it whisper, or it is barely noticeable?  Perhaps it’s the other extreme and so loud that you can barely hear yourself think.  We want to aim to quieten the self-talk, and aventurine will help you do this with compassion.  It allows you to move out of your head and into your heart, which in turn will give you balance and soften any stress you may have.

We all need to work towards remaining in the centre of the pendulum swing, rather than swinging from one extreme to the other and back again.  We need this to be healthy on all fronts, our emotional health, our mental health and of course as a knock-on effect, our physical health as well.

By having a crystal healing session, you will be balanced, stable and will feel softer within your being.  You will be more heart centred, which is important.  By continuing to work with crystals and having crystal healing, balance within your whole being becomes a way of life.
