• Attract Abundance with REAL Citrine


    What is the crystal to use to attract abundance? Citrine, of course!

    I love using my citrine. It works almost IMMEDIATELY after I put it on; I become a money magnet. People start sending me money that I forgot they owed me, clients sign up for sessions, I get returns and gifts…. It’s a little freaky!

    And citrine is super easy to use – almost too easy. Just string it on a piece of leather (or a silver chain if you are a vegan) – put it on and viola! Easy peasy. You can even stick a piece in your pocket and get the same effect!

    Just make sure that you actually buy CITRINE – not heated amethyst – which many people are trying to pass off as citrine. Heated amethyst does have some wonderful qualities, like getting you motivated, but it doesn’t have the abundance attracting power that citrine does.

    Here is a nice write-up about the differences in composition and characteristics of natural citrine versus heated amethyst, from Pixie (Click here)

    Basically put, you need the right crystal for the right job! If the outcome you want is abundance (and confidence), go with the citrine. If you are looking for motivation, go with the heated amethyst.


  • Hag Stones



    When I was frolicking on the shores of Lake Michigan on my recent trip home, I totally had my eye out for any interesting and helpful stones that I could bring home with me! One specific type of stone I was looking for is known as a Hag Stone, or Holey Stone.

    Hag Stones are created when water and other elements work to carve a hole into a stone. The holes must occur naturally: there is no drilling involved, no matter what your husband might recommend!

    Uses for Hag Stones found on shorelines include anything to do with water, like cleansing and healing. Feminine issues, like menstrual cycles and fertility can also be affected by working with Hag Stones. Lore ties Hag Stones to protection from negative energies and entities – so Hag Stones are often seen hanging near doorways and on bedposts. They can be used, along with dream catchers, to help with nightmares.

    Those that are found inland are said to aid in helping people see and interact with the fairy realm.

    To use your Hag Stone, you can either keep it in a pocket as a rubbing stone or you can tie one onto a necklace and wear it as jewelry. People have been known to hang them from ribbons as well. To catch a peek of the fairy realm, a person would actually look through the hole in their Hag Stone!

    Cleanse your stone after using it by bathing it in salt water and then allowing it to dry out overnight (under the light of a full moon would be best). Hag Stones that are hung can be cleansed in the same way, or simply put under a full moon to cleanse and recharge the stones while caring for the cord or ribbon used to hang the stones.

    It is interesting to note that I was actively “looking” for stones and didn’t find any when I was looking! I actually found all of the Hag Stones I came across when I was busy doing other things, like playing with my kids or gathering stones to use to decorate sand castles! According to legend, Hag Stones that are accidentally found are much more powerful stones to work with!


  • Clear Quartz: The Multi-Functional Powerhouse

    Clear Quartz – Powerful. Capable. It is a powerhouse crystal that should be at the foundation of any crystal collector’s sampling. It is multi-functional, yet totally simple.




    Clear quartz is a must have stone for anyone who is working with crystals. It is extremely versatile, common, and inexpensive. It is helpful in so many ways…

    What can your clear quartz do for you?

    • It can help you to balance your Chakras – not one, but ALL of them.
    • It can be your master crystal – energizing the other crystals you work with.
    • It can cleanse your tarot deck – just set a cleaned quartz crystal on your deck when it is not in use.
    • You can use one or two to open your third eye.
    • You can program them with any intent you’d like to manifest.
    • You can use them to heal yourself and others.
    • It can amplify or strengthen your thoughts, intentions, and energy.
    • It can strengthen your ability to communicate with and understand Spirit and your Guides.

    Keep your clear quartz clean, clear, and helping at full speed by keeping it stored in the sunlight when not in use, clearing it with Reiki (if you are attuned), holding it in or under running water (tap is OK in a pinch, but a natural waterfall or stream would be best), put it onto a bed of amethyst overnight, burying it in a small hole in the earth overnight (don’t forget to mark it well so that you can find it again!).

    What is your favorite way to work with clear quartz? Do you have any great stories about using it? Feel free to comment!
