The Healing Powers of Crystals and Gemstones

I met Rosie Stars, from Super 7 Healers a few years ago at the Awaken Fair in NYC. Rosie creates beautiful jewelry with beautiful and healing crystals and gemstones.

I purchased a "Super 7" pendant that activates all seven chakras. It "facilitates spiritual growth on all levels of being, gives access to subconscious mind to remember one’s purpose & how to live it. Contains all 7 mineral characteristics in every stone whether they are visible or not and synergistically creates a higher frequency that heals". And I wear it everyday. The results have been amazing, and it's gorgeous.

Rosie was kind enough to let me interview her about the healing properties of crystals and gemstones.

AC: Please tell us about the healing properties of gemstones, minerals and crystals.

RS: Every stone has different healing properties based on its origination, mineral content and color. Most stones can be used to balance specific chakras based on color, or you can wear stones that are effective on all chakras. For instance, a stone like Larimar is a rare, beautiful blue which looks like water in the Caribbean. It was created through volcanic activity when the island of the Dominican Republic was formed, making it a water AND fire stone. Because of this, it is a great stone to balance hot flashes and swings of emotion. It helps us speak our truth without being overly emotional as it is a throat chakra stone. It's very good for all women and especially great for managers, lawyers, mothers, anyone hitting their 40-50's to wear!

What are your favorite gemstones, their properties, and why are they your favorites?

I don't have a favorite. I consider stones more like sacred tools, medicine or helpers - so I honor them all. But I personally need to work with certain stones 24/7. Sugilite is a rare purple "violet flame" stone from South Africa that I must wear as it helps shield me from other peoples energy. I pick up other people's pain/negativity otherwise. It works with the 6th through 14th chakras so it is very protective and purifying from negative energies and disharmony. I wear a choker and ring on my receiving hand at all times. I also have a bracelet of covellite on my right (sending) hand. It is a stone that is sensitive to the changing energy patterns of the Earth...and it alters its vibration to stay in harmony. I don't know if you are familiar with String Theory or Quantum Physics but I'm very conscious of my emotions and the vibes I am putting out and receiving. I only want to create positive experience these days, so I wear Covellite on my sending hand to make sure I only send balanced energy out to the world.

I love your tagline "to heal the earth heal your self". Tell us more about that!

Metaphysically we are all connected. Our vibration/energy affects every aspect of our experience. People have a tendency to see "saving/healing the world" as an external process that one has to go out and physically do, when in reality every thought and emotion (e-motion = energy in motion) is what we are sending out into the world. The vibration or frequency of those thoughts and e-motions then attracts a similar frequency/vibration. If we watch movies or TV, we are bombarded with fear mongering, anger, greed, resentment so THAT energy is what we internalize, which shows up on the planet as dolphins being killed en mass, the tar sands, terrorism, war, etc. If each one of us raises our energy/vibration and sees the people around us with love and appreciation, we then send out that energy to attract our life experience. Every person we encounter then gets the benefit of our positive energy and that energy exponentially goes out to affect others around the world. It all starts with us. Very simple...but not easy! 

Thank you so much for all your knowledge, Rosie! And for creating the amazing piece of jewelry I am wearing right now!

Crystals for your Holistic Space

Clear Quartz with Amethyst

Last week Rosie Stars of  Super 7 Healers shared the meanings and healing properties of crystals. This week we went room by room to place specific crystals and gemstones. 

AC: Do you have gemstones located in your home, office or studio and why?

RS: Aside from the stones I wear I always have Smoky Quartz and Black Tourmaline where I sleep. Either on the night stand or next to my head as they work like psychic vacuums helping to protect and clear any negative energy I may have picked up during the day. I have used these stones to clear whole houses of negativity, so I feel everyone should have some!

Do you have gemstones that you would recommend for specifics areas, such as bedrooms (rest), desk (focus), living-entertaining spaces and why?

Absolutely! Stones can really help keep people feeling balanced and protected in various situations.

Bedrooms: Black Tourmaline, Smoky Quartz, Tourmalined Quartz. All should be next to the bed or headboard to aid sleep. And Rose Quartz is good to have at night as it calms the mind, releases worry, vibrationally supports the heart and helps us release emotional patterns that may be keeping us from reaching higher vibrations where we can experience higher energies and light. ALL of this while our bodies are sleeping!!! It gives our minds something to do instead of thinking/worrying!

Desk: Same as above to clear negativity, lower stress. Plus Amethyst is wonderful and similar to Sugilite in that it works with the higher chakras (6-14) but is cheaper and easier to find. If you do meetings or presentations find throat chakra stones: Larimar, Blue Lace Agate to help "speak your truth" or stand up for your self. If you are a lawyer or do any counseling where there is a lot of anger. Place a chunk of Tiger Eye in the room as it helps situations where people are at odds. It bridges extremes helping people get beyond concepts like right/wrong, good/bad bringing harmony to custody battles/divorce/hostile situations.

Living-Entertainment spaces: If you need a neutral space to decompress: green calcite (4th chakra/heart) for relaxation, emotional balance, release of stress. Wonderful for relationships and forgiveness, release of resentment.

If you want to bring joy and optimism to the space try green aventurine (4th chakra/heart) to bring hope and release attachments. It gently grounds and helps us move out of our heads and into our hearts...stimulates renewal on all levels.

If you have kids that are high energy or over active, use same stones as listed for bedrooms.

How would you recommend someone clear their gemstones, and why?

From a metaphysical perspective intention is enough to clear stones. You can focus the thought that you want to clear a stone of any energies that are not beneficial then blow on it or run it under water for a few seconds. It is more for our benefit that the "clearing" is done. I know there is a big deal made around clearing stones, but I find it is not the stone, but me who usually needs to be cleared. If a stone no longer feels like it is working for me I check in to see what I am feeling and then make sure it is the best stone for what I need to work on. I can always find a stone that then works.
