Meditation for Peace and Healing

Tonight, 9/07/20, through 8pm BST, we complete our series of three meditations:

 'To send peace and healing to the Earth and her inhabitants'

using the beautiful heart shaped chunk of rose quartz shown below.
All are welcome to join us from where ever you are based across the globe. Simply sit in peace, in a quiet place, through the allotted time. Let go of all your own worries and concerns, and then use the words and image of the crystals as a positive focus in meditation, positive thought or prayer.
Each and every connection empowers the healing effect of the meditation and also connects those who join in, to a deeper sense of personal peace and wellbeing, much needed with the current challenges so many of us face.

Angel Aura Planting

A beautiful Angel Aura crystal was planted to the Quiet Garden and Labyrinth opposite St Pol de Leon Church in St Paul, Cornwall, last Sunday 5/07/20 at 5.30pm.
These amazing crystals are programmed to enhance angelic connection and healing to the Earth and her inhabitants, so needed in the challenging times we all face.
Many thanks to the planter and for sharing this work. This crystal feels to be part of the Fifty crystals in Fifty days planting project, begun on Earth Day 2020.

Sunshine Aura Planting

I unexpectedly found myself planting my beautiful sunshine aura crystal into the sea, here in Orkney, yesterday. Its often hard to let go of personal crystals but sometimes you just know in your heart that the Earth's calling is greater than your own needs.
This crystal was planted into the water next to the Arctic tern colony in Birsay. Programmed to bring hope, joy and vitality to the bearer or place of planting it felt that this crystal would not only serve to strengthen this colony, which has struggled in recent years, but also all those who visit this beautiful part of the Orkney coastline. I also had a strong sense of the energies of the crystal being webbed out across the planet, not only by the ocean currents (this particular site gets the full brunt of the Atlantic Ocean) but also by the terns themselves when they leave later in the year on their amazing migration back to the Southern Hemisphere for the winter.
Shortly after the planting an amazing plate sized golden coloured jelly fish appeared, swimming where the crystal had entered the water and when I looked more closely the water was teeming with different jelly fish. These beautiful marine animals can also web energies across the planet travelling on the ocean currents and also being very efficient swimmers themselves.

Tree Planting and Crystals

I planted these 12 beautiful willow cuttings on 22nd of June 2020, to a corner of our garden which had to be dug up just before lockdown, along with a Rose heart of Light to veil peace and healing to the area and encourage the rooting and regrowth of the willow.
Planting trees is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our planet at this time in terms of carbon capture, habitat revival, prevention of soil erosion, cleansing of air pollution and production of the very oxygen we breathe. Combining this with the planting of rose quartz adds a further beautiful healing dimension of peace and greater regeneration.
This can be done in several ways. You can simply place a piece of rose quartz tumbled or rough cut to the hole in which you are planting each tree, or you can plant a rose quartz heart in an area where several trees are being placed as above, or you can grid a larger planting area with fist sized rose quartz, one to each corner of the site. 
To empower and focus the healing it is best to ask the crystals to bring peace, healing, positive regeneration and growth to the trees and land to which they are placed. This programming can be done by holding the crystals in your right palm or placing your right palm over the crystal or where using many or larger crystals placing both palms over them having first rubbed your hands together to ignite / polarise your energy. Then simply ask for the required energies, for example:
'I ask the Light that this rose quartz crystal veil peace healing, positive regeneration and growth to the tree and land to which it is placed. Thank you.'
or for a grid:
'I ask the Light that these rose quartz crystals ignite a circuit of healing energy to veil peace, positive regeneration and growth to the trees and land within the circuit. Thank you.'

Please note: To programme your crystal or crystals to greatest effect, it is best to cleanse and align yourself and if inside, the space you are in, first. This is simply done by stopping and being still, and then asking the Light (Universal /Cosmic energy) that all negativity be cleansed from your being and the room/space you are in and that the negativity is released to the Earth for transmutation, and then that you and the room/space are filled with positivity. Then you are ready to begin. 
Crystals new to you are should also be cleansed for a minimum of 12 hours before use and always before programming. To do this, rose quartz can simply be placed in water in a glass container overnight, then dried with a clean natural fibre cloth. The crystal or crystals are then ready for programming and planting.

Meditation For Planetary Alignment And Harmony

Our Crystal Earth Meditations, this week, are Tuesday 23rd June 2020, and Thursday 25th June 2020, both through 8pm BST.
This Tuesday we return to the focus:
'To bring greater alignment and harmony to the planetary body of the Earth.'
This meditation uses the crystal configuration shown below, comprising of a Pure Grace Heart (selenite for flow to the physical), three dioptase (for fulfilment) and three green kyanite (for alignment and balance).
This meditation feels key at this time, as many countries across the globe begin to open up again and face key decisions in connection with health, climate change, and planetary well being.
All are welcome to join us, from where ever you are based.
Simply sit in peace, in a quiet place, through the allotted time, let go of all your own worries and concerns, and then use the words and image of the crystals as a positive focus in meditation, positive thought or prayer.
Each and every connection empowers the healing effect of the meditation.

Solstice Plantings

Crystal Earthworks celebrated the solstice this weekend, with the planting of five of these beautiful dog tooth calcite clusters to two key energetic sites here in Orkney.
These plantings are part of the beginning of a new bank of work which we are currently evolving to strengthen different aspects of the Earth's planetary body.
Dog tooth calcite comes in many shapes and forms and can be programmed and planted to rocky outcrops, boulders, crags or standing stones to strengthen the physical body of the Earth by grounding Light energy into the planetary body.

Crystal Earth Meditation Tonight

Tonight, 18/06/20, through 8pm BST, we return to our much needed focus:

 'To send the peace, healing and heart connection to the Earth and her inhabitants.'

This meditation will use the beautiful crystal configuration shown below, comprised of a Pure Grace Heart, four rose auras and four angel aura. 
This week, we focus once again on all most vulnerable at this time, be that indigenous populations, those in refugee camps or cramped crowded conditions, those in war torn areas, those vulnerable to abuse, those with underlying health difficulties and of course all the amazing people continuing to provide medical and other frontline services, as well as those continuing to work to protect threatened wildlife and habitats. 
To join in, from where ever you are based across the globe, 
simply sit in peace, in a quiet place, through the allotted time. Let go of all your own worries and concerns, and then use the words and image of the crystals as a positive focus in meditation, positive thought or prayer.
Each and every connection empowers the healing effect of the meditation.


Planting for Angelic and Heart and Connection

The second of my trips out this week, involved returning to an area of coastline in Birsay recently planted for general healing. During the previous visit,  I felt I had received a prompt to plant further crystals to help ease the mental and emotional effects of lockdown for those living, visiting or walking in the vicinity.
The crystals planted were two beautiful programmed aura crystals. Rose aura to enhance heart connection, and angel aura to bring greater angelic connection.
Once again it was a beautiful day and the whole area felt to have such a different energy to recent visits, more vibrant, flowing and with the gift of Artic terns having returned to their nesting site which had previously seemed abandoned.

Planting for Personal and Planetary healing

As lockdown here in Orkney eases, I've managed to get out on two crystal planting trips this week. 
The first involved planting these beautiful sets of lapis, snow quartz and rose quartz to a key energetic site in Orkney on the 15/06/20.

 
These crystals are of great personal connection to myself,  but their planting was to bring healing at both a personal and planetary level. Lapis to strengthen the physical expression of our collective soul song, so key at this time of opportunity for positive global change. Rose quartz to bring peace of mind through heart connection, and snow quartz to bring gentle nurturance and strength though our connection with the Earth . 
A beautiful day, a humbling opportunity and so lovely to feel the Earth vibrating with purity, strength and Light on the way home.

Mediation to Help Rebalance the Earth's Energy Field

The focus for tonights Crystal Earth Meditation, through 8pm is:

'To bring greater harmony and balance to the Earth's energy field.'

This meditation will use the beautiful combination of a Pure Grace Heart, copper tumble stones and angel aura as shown below and will be repeated monthly.

I have been working with this meditation for a few weeks now and it feels to be a key at this time for the health of our planet, ourselves and all life forms.
The Earth is awash with negative electromagnetic energies from our largely unchecked use of electronic items, mobile phones and the structures that support this usage - telecommunication masts, pylons, substations and so on. These energies affect not only our own health and wellbeing, and that of other forms of life, but are also having a devastating impact at a planetary level. Attracted to polar regions, in particular polar north, due to their magnetic nature, they contribute to the melting of the icecaps, thus driving climate change, as well as causing localised imbalance, distortion and a general weakening of the Earth's subtle energy.

To join in, Simply sit in peace, in a quiet place, through the allotted time, where ever you are based across the globe. Let go of all your own worries and concerns, and then use the words and image of the crystals as a positive focus in meditation, positive thought or prayer.
Each and every connection empowers the healing effect of the meditation.

Crystal Cairns

In these times of great challenge both to our planetary body and ourselves, it is key to do all we can to positively support ourselves, those around us and of course our beautiful Mother Earth who nourishes and sustains us.
A crystal cairn in your garden or an outside space for example at a hospice, therapy garden, or healing centre can greatly enhance the energy of all in its vicinity, and if meditated with regularly, can become a beacon of healing Light.
All that is needed is to make a small cairn out of rounded, and where possible, local natural stone.  Then simply place a programmed fist sized chunk of crystal on top of the cairn and meditate with it weekly, or more often if you are able to, focusing on the particular healing energy qualities of your chosen crystal.
A cairn is best placed in a sheltered site where there is good natural light and air flow, allowing and enhancing the natural energy flow of the crystal.  Damp, dark, enclosed, or very windy or exposed sites are not suitable.
Good crystals for cairns include rose quartz, amethyst, snow quartz and unikite. It is best to choose one type of crystal and stay with that so that the energy can build, rather than chopping and changing, the amethyst cairn, here at Old Nisthouse, has been in action for some years now.
Which crystal you use will depend on what you feel is most required both for yourself and your local area, if unsure ask to be shown in a dream or a meditation. You may even be suddenly gifted with a suitable crystal - the Universe is very clever at guiding us in the right direction if we can only remain open to its prompts and flow!

Rose quartz will flow peace and healing to the area to which it is placed and beyond if it is programmed to do so acting as a community focus of Light.

Rose quartz chunk

Amethyst on a cairn strengthens spiritual connection and encourages other light streams such as fairies, devas, and elementals.

Amethyst cairn

Snow quartz is the 'mother stone', bringing gentle nurturance and strength to all in its wake. It also attracts birds butterflies bees and other wildlife.

Snow quartz cairn

Unikite is a bringer of harmony, peace, and unity.

Unakite

To programme, cleanse your crystal overnight in water, pat dry with a clean natural fibre cloth. Place the crystal in you left palm with your right palm over, or simply place your right palm on it if it is too large to hold, and ask the crystal to ignite to your chosen energy focus.

For example, for rose quartz:
"I ask the Light to veil to my home / garden / neighbourhood / community with peace, healing and positive energy flow."

Then place the programmed crystal on top of your cairn, with any point to it facing upright, and allow its beauty and healing qualities to radiate out to all within its wake. As the crystal is placed outside it will be cleansed by the elements and can be thus left undisturbed.
I have worked with crystal cairns for many years now, initially at a personal and community level and in more recent years with the Crystal Earthworks cairn with its global focus. They are truly special gifts to use and I never cease to be amazed by the changes in energy they can bring about to an area, to individuals and to the wildlife and land to which they are placed.

Please Note: To programme your crystals to greatest effect, it is important to cleanse and align yourself and the space you are in first. This is simply done by stopping and being still, and then asking the Light (Universal /Cosmic energy) that all negativity be cleansed from your being and the room/space you are in and that the negativity is released to the Earth for transmutation, and then that you and the room/space are filled with positivity. Then you are ready to begin.

Crystal Planting For General Healing

The foundation of the Crystal Earthworks is planting crystals to heal sores to the Earths surface. 
Orkney has a beautiful coastline but there are a few sites where that beauty is marred by historic, and in some cases more recent, dumping. This sort of fly tipping stems from the times when, especially on the islands or in more remote areas, getting rid of unwanted items or waste was not so easy, and has in part been extenuated by the current pandemic and associated reduced refuse and recycling opportunities.  Rubbish tends to accumulate where there is already a negative imprint of energy to the Earth, left by past negative events or stresses. Reminded of this, on our recent walks to the coast as lockdown begins to lift here in Scotland,  I felt prompted to begin to crystal plant these sites to cleanse and recharge them thus bringing about healing.
The General Healing configuration of a combination of programmed fist sized pyrite and rose quartz is ideal for this type of work. The pyrite absorbs negativity held to the earth at the site of planting re-aligning the area and the rose quartz veils peace and healing to the land and all who come within its vicinity.
I planted the first of these sets at the weekend to a site on an otherwise pristine bit of coastline in Birsay, on the west mainland of Orkney and other sites are to follow. 
This planting is also contributing to the 'Fifty crystals in fifty days' project begun on Earth day 2020.
If you are aware of similar sites in your own area and feel drawn to healing them in this way, please get in touch by email and I can forward you the full instructions for actioning the planting.

Amethyst Cairn

Just added these beautiful angel aura crystals to the Amethyst Cairn, and associated crystals, here at Old Nisthouse in Orkney.
The cairn has been redirected to to a more general focus, to encompass both the ongoing challenges of the current Pandemic and the effects of climate change, as well as other challenges as they arise at an individual, community or wider level.
The focus is now:
'To send strength, and positive connections to all in distress across the globe.' 
The cairn can be connected to at any time in meditation, positive thought or prayer, from where ever you are based. 
Simply sit in peace, in a quiet place, let go of your own worries and concerns, and visualise the cairn, whilst asking for strength and positive connections to be veiled to those in need. Your focus may be at a local, national or global level, and be people, wildlife or habitat related. 
Whilst the Crystal Earthworks cairn works at a global level, in line with the planetary healing focus of the project, crystal cairns are also beautiful healing tools to place to your garden or local community. If you are interested in woking with crystals in this way, I will be posting about how to action this on the blog, later in the week.

Crystals For Peace and Strength

We are focusing on the theme of peace and strength this week, as lockdown continues for many, and for others the tentative steps of communities reopening their doors brings new challenges and required ways of living.
Peace and and a feeling of connectedness to the support of something greater than ourselves is key at this time, both at a personal and planetary level. For whilst we stand on the cusp of opportunity for positive change to become truly responsible custodians for our beautiful planet and to move forward in new sustainable ways of living, we are also facing loss and suffering in ways few of us could have envisaged.
Rose quartz is a key crystal at this time. It can be carried or worn personally, programmed to bring gentle peace and healing to the bearer, a small tumbled piece or pendant will suffice. It can be placed to the home or workplace, programmed to bring peace and healing to all in its wake, a fist sized chunk is best. In addition, it can be planted directly into the earth or used as a meditative cairn to bring peace and healing on a larger scale, again using a fist sized chunk, programmed to bring peace and healing to all in its wake.

Rose quartz in its various forms and sizes
Snow quartz is also particularly suited to the challenges of current times, for it is a bringer of gentle and sustained strength, peace and nurturance. Best suited to using personally, either in pendant or tumbled form, it can be worn, carried or placed to the bedside, programmed to bring strength, peace and Light support to the bearer. For healing at a wider level a fist sized chunk can be used as a meditative cairn nurturing all within its wake, as well as attracting and strengthening all forms of wildlife.
Snow quartz is of particular benefit at this time, to those working with the ill and infirm such as Doctors, nurses, carers and therapists to bring strength, nurturance and enhance intuitive response to those within their care.

Snow quartz in tumbled and rough cut forms
Please note :
All crystals require cleansing both before programming and regularly when in use - daily overnight in water if worn or carried,  or weekly for room crystals. Where crystals are placed or planted  outside they will be cleansed by the elements and no further action is required.
Cleansing is essential to avoid the crystals becoming saturated with negative energy which can then drip back into the energy field of the user, or area of placement. To cleanse either of these types of crystals simply place in a glass of water overnight, pat dry with a clean natural fibre cloth and then reprogram as described. Crystals new to you are best cleansed for a minimum of twelve hours in this way before use, as they will have connected with many different energies on their journey to you!

To programme your crystals to greatest effect, it is important to cleanse and align yourself and the space you are in first. This is simply done by stopping and being still, and then asking the Light (Universal /Cosmic energy) that all negativity be cleansed from your being and the room/space you are in and that the negativity is released to the Earth for transmutation, and then that you and the room/space are filled with positivity. Then you are ready to begin.
Simply hold the chosen crystal in your right palm (or place your right palm on the crystal if it is very large) and ask that it begins to work for you as given, for example:

"I ask the Light that this snow quartz veil me with strength, peace and gentle nurturance. Thank you."

The call to Light refers to divine energy (universal/cosmic energy).
