With summer here lots of you seem to be out Crystal Planting, which is fantastic.
Personally, I had to travel up to Orkney overnight last week and managed to plant York and Edinburgh train stations with a general healing combination of pyrite and rose quartz on the way, which felt really good.
Jennifer Mole arrived in Ireland yesterday and is travelling round to complete the Coastal Heart Planting work. Further details of this project, which has been ongoing for several years can be found on the projects website - see links and go to the community Planting page.
If you have any of your own crystal planting experiences you would like to share please get in touch.
I seem to have been doing a lot of work with crystals and animals over the last few weeks, working with an elderly cat in her last days of life, helping baby robins who had attempted to fledge a little too soon, and sending healing to the wood mouse shown below which we found out on the bank at a local pub looking unwell.
Crystals can be planted into the earth, meditated with and used directly with animals to help heal an strengthen them both generally and in times of injury, illness or disease. As with all crystal healing it is important to use the crystals for these purposes with great respect and in an informed way, yet as with humans any animal can have rose quartz placed with it to bring peace and gentle healing as long as the crystal is cleansed regularly overnight in water.
If you use crystals in the home and have them regularly cleansing in bowels or glasses you will probably have noticed that pets will prefer to drink this crystal water to their own, especially cats who are very intuitive and sense the heightened energy of the crystal charged liquid. Equally crystals can be purposefully placed in water for animals and birds - pets, farm and wild animals and birds all benefit from this - ask a qualified crystal therapist for guidance on which crystals are best, or go on a certified course to learn more about this special area of work.
