Wisdom and Wonderings

Some thoughts and insight.


This time of year is one often associated with love. Do we have it? Do we need it? Rose quartz is known widely as a stone that can help to promote feelings of self-love. It is only when we can recognize and experience true love within ourselves that we are able to genuinely share that feeling with the people, creatures and experiences around us.

If you are after a night of self care, rose quartz can be beneficial for your skin as well. If you take the time to soak your stone in water overnight to charge the energies, the water may then be used as a gentle elixir for sensitive skin and to obtain a clearer, more vibrant visage.

The completion of your self-care ritual may involve meditation. This can be done at any point, before, after or during the other phases. Many people hole the crystal in their hand or lay it on their chest to meditate and focus on the healing and loving energy of the crystal. Whilst the general energy of the crystal in love, that love may be directed inward or outward. It can help you heal the wounds of love lost or a rough patch in a relationship, can help you to find compassion towards a loved one and to elevate the feelings of peace and calm within yourself.

For centuries, people have looked to gems and crystals to heal their bodies, minds, and spirits. From ancient healers to spiritual teachers of today, healing gemstones have been used by many cultures for a variety of healing purposes. Follow me on a journey to take a look at the history and science behind the powerful healing properties of these special stones.

What Are Healing Gems & Crystals?

Healing gems and crystals are natural materials that come from the earth and contain high amounts of energy, which can be used in many different ways. Different types of stones have different properties and vibrations that work together to create specific healing effects. For example, amethyst is known to enhance intuition and reduce anxiety, while rose quartz is thought to promote self-love.

The History & Science Behind Healing Gemstones

For thousands of years, various cultures around the world have relied on healing gems and crystals for their holistic health benefits. In ancient Chinese medicine, practitioners used jade stones to facilitate healing through massage therapy. In India, Ayurvedic medicine has long used turquoise stones to treat physical ailments such as headaches or stomach aches. And Native Americans believed that turquoise carried spiritual protection from harm. While the exact science behind how these stones work is still unclear, modern studies suggest that they may help balance energy levels in our bodies through electromagnetic fields or vibrations emitted by certain gemstones.

Today, you can use healing gemstones for a variety of purposes such as balancing your chakras or soothing stress levels. Many people carry around certain stones in their pocket or wearing them as jewellery throughout the day so they can reap the benefits at all times. Others prefer using meditation with crystals or placing them around their home in order to fill it with positive energy. Whatever way you choose to use them, healing gems and crystals can be an incredibly powerful tool when it comes to promoting holistic well-being.

Did you know the word 'Lapis' is the Latin word for stone, with Lazuli descending through many languages from the ancient Sanskrit word for 'Sky' or 'Heaven'? It has maintained a constant role in biblical history; during the Renaissance it was crushed down into the colour Ultramarine and often reserved for depicting the robes of Angels. The pigment was the most expensive available, with gold coming in second.

Lapis Lazuli calls to us of wisdom, intuition, and truth. If you struggle with indecision or choice paralysis this stone may call to you. It may assist in opening your third eye chakra and deepening your connection to your own depths. It bears the centre of intuition and inner knowledge.

Not just a stone of introspection, Lapis can help you find the moment to take step up, take charge and become your most authentic self.
