Trinidad: The gem of the sun


LAST week's article was about the absence of the element of fire this Dog month and the resulting anxiety, fear and depression that goes with the period.

Next month, the Pig month, in this Pig year there is still no fire, but a surfeit of the water element.

Thankfully, there are many crystals that can raise the vibes, making one feel more positive. And, as the Law of Attraction states, positive vibes create positive experiences.

There is one crystal that actually makes me smile because is so aptly named "the gem of the sun" by the ancient Egyptians. References to it on papyri date back to 1500 BC.

Feng Shui dates way beyond that, and the sun has always been connected to the element of fire.

I am awed to think that Divine Intelligence will always give us a way to lift ourselves up. They even provided us with 'the gem of the sun' in this period of "the absence of fire."

Makes me feel grateful, and blessed, which again, is another of this crystal's gifts.

One of our clients came to us because his wife had been unable to sleep for several nights and had been showing the symptoms of spiraling into depression: not wanting go out or get out of bed or even fix herself up. We have him a bowl of the rough crystal. He placed it on the table beside her pillow.

The next day, he dropped by to tell us he noticed a marked improvement. She was preparing dinner when he got home.

The crystal helped her fight off her dismal mood.

I also remember a client with 2 daughters, the younger born 6 years after the other. All of a sudden, all the attention was centered on the baby, and the older daughter was exhibiting signs of jealousy and frequently had tantrums.

We gave this crystal.

A few months later, I got a call asking if we were in the country. They had to come because the elder daughter's bracelet broke. She had returned to bring a crybaby with tantrums and they had to have her bracelet repaired immediately.

Of course, there is that built in requirement. At the risk of sounding like

a broken record, I have to repeat: crystals must be activated. Otherwise, they are just accessories. No use expecting them to give you their gifts if they are asleep.

Not all crystals are the same energetically. We personally feel first each crystal's vibes to ensure they are responsive and come from a good source. Each one is handpicked.

Oh, did I mention that this crystal is the peridot?

Combined with two other crystals, it can also help with money management and diminish payables because it is a crystal for wealth and prosperity.

See us for awakened peridots.

We are at #29 Sari-sari Section, Baguio City Market, open from 4:30 to 6:30 from Monday to Saturday.
