Kyanite

Kyanite

The high vibration and rapid transfers of energy from Kyanite create pathways where none existed before. Like a universal bridge, it is an extraordinary crystal of connection, opening the mind centers, enhancing telepathic and psychic abilities, bridging gaps in all communication efforts, and providing a link for transmitting or receiving healing energy. It immediately aligns the chakras and subtle bodies, bringing tranquility and a calming effect to the whole being. It is an exceptional stone for transitioning into deep meditative states.

Like Citrine, Kyanite is one of the two minerals on the planet that neither accumulates nor retains negative energy, and therefore never needs cleansing. Kyanite’s energy is unlimited in application, making it an excellent stone for metaphysical purposes, and it may be used for cleansing and clearing other crystals.

Kyanite inspires loyalty and fair treatment to others. It assists in working through disagreements and disputes, and can aid in repairing damaged relationships. It is beneficial in negotiations, diplomatic missions, arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people, allowing disparate energies to move into resonance and find a common frequency. 

In the workplace, Kyanite promotes good communication, bridging the gap between different beliefs and ideas, and encourages self-expression and speaking one’s truth. Hold or wear Kyanite when addressing a group, or leading a seminar or team meeting. It sharpens communication skills, and is particularly helpful when answering questions or when there is a need to improvise. 

Crystal Grid

For those who have lost their way in life, or are trying to break a cycle of self-destructive behavior, use Kyanite in an empowerment grid to get back on track. Lay out rows of small Kyanite blades radiating from a central Kyanite in six different directions. Use each night to walk a different path in the mind, letting images and ideas take form spontaneously. Continue until you no longer need the grid. 

Kyanite’s frequency encourages the examination of all aspects of oneself, the various interests, skills and knowledge that creates the uniqueness of one’s identity, and how it can be used for one’s Soul path on Earth and in finding a life-fulfilling vocation. It encourages listening to intuitive guidance and living with integrity of purpose.

Kyanite helps overcome a victim or fatalistic mentality, and the resignation of oneself to the recurring emotional patterns that create blockages in the energetic field. Kyanite can bridge the connection to those patterns and quickly create new energy flow and a shift in one’s perception to the world. It assists one in remaining functional in extreme situations, promotes a more logical way of thinking, and encourages resolute action. 

chakra balancing with crystals

 

 

Kyanite instantly aligns all the chakras and subtle bodies, clearing the pathways and meridians. It restores Qi to the physical body and promotes a calming effect to the whole being. With its blue and indigo energies, Kyanite is particularly stimulating to the Throat and Third Eye Chakras, expanding communication and psychic awareness on all levels.

Blue crystal energy will unblock and balance the throat chakra. Darker shades of blue encourage the power of truth, while lighter shades carry the power of flexibility, relaxation, and balance.

Spiritually, Kyanite removes the idea of blind fate or implacable karma, and reveals the part played by the self in creating causes and relationships in one’s life, and the action needed to balance the past. It dispels illusion, anger, and frustration, and increases logical, linear thought. It grounds spiritual energy, linking to the higher mind, bringing integrity and maturation. Kyanite is also helpful for those making the transition through death.

Kyanite’s high spiritual energy enhances one’s psychic abilities, and allows for a closer connection and transfer of information from higher beings. It assists in opening the Third Eye during mediation and healing sessions, and may be used to enhance telepathy between two persons, or between healing facilitator and client. It is an excellent tool for Crystal Resonance Therapy and other forms of crystal-based healing.

Kyanite’s energy is easily accessible, gentle, and balanced, making it an excellent crystal for meditation. It allows for a rapid transition into a deep meditative state, and is quite useful in accessing the astral plane and connecting with one’s guides, as well as gleaning solutions from within a lucid dream state.

Meditating with Black Kyanite allows one to return to past lives and go forward to probable futures, teaching one to experience interdimensional consciousness without losing connection to Earth.

佛说盂兰盆经

佛说盂兰盆经

西晋三藏法师竺法护译

闻如是。一时佛在舍卫国祇树给孤独园。大目犍连始得六通,欲度父母,报乳哺之恩。即以道眼观视世间,见其亡母生饿鬼中,不见饮食,皮骨连立。目连悲哀,即以钵盛饭,往饷其母,母得钵饭,即以左手障钵,右手搏食,食未入口,化成火炭,遂不得食。目连大叫,悲号涕泣,驰还白佛,具陈如此。

佛言:‘汝母罪根深结,非汝一人力所奈何。汝虽孝顺,声动天地、天神地祇、邪魔外道、道士四天王神,亦不能奈何。当须十方众僧威神之力乃得解脱。吾今当说救济之法,令一切难皆离忧苦。’

佛告目连:‘十方众生,七月十五日,僧自恣时,当为七世父母及现在父母厄难中者,具饭、百味五果、汲灌盆器、香油锭烛、床敷卧具、尽世甘美以著盆中,供养十方大德众僧。当此之日,一切圣众,或在山间禅定、或得四道果、或在树下经行、或六通自在教化声闻缘觉、或十地菩萨大人,权现比丘,在大众中,皆同一心,受钵和罗饭,具清净戒,圣众之道,其德汪洋。其有供养此等自恣僧者,现世父母、六亲眷属,得出三涂之苦应时解脱,衣食自然;若父母现在者,福乐百年;若七世父母生天,自在化生,入天华光。’

时佛敕十方众僧,皆先为施主家咒愿,愿七世父母行禅定意,然后受食。初受食时,先安在佛前,塔寺中佛前,众僧咒愿竟,便自受食。

时目连比丘及大菩萨众皆大欢喜,目连悲啼泣声释然除灭。

时目连母即于是日,得脱一劫饿鬼之苦。

目连复白佛言:‘弟子所生母,得蒙三宝功德之力,众僧威神力故。若未来世,一切佛弟子,亦应奉盂兰盆,救度现在父母,乃至七世父母,可为尔否?’

佛言:‘大善快问!我正欲说,汝今复问。善男子!若比丘比丘尼、国王太子、大臣宰相、三公百官、万民庶人,行慈孝者,皆应先为所生现在父母、过去七世父母,于七月十五日,佛欢喜日,僧自恣日,以百味饭食,安盂兰盆中,施十方自恣僧,愿使现在父母,寿命百年无病、无一切苦恼之患,乃至七世父母离恶鬼苦,生人天中,福乐无极。是佛弟子修孝顺者,应念念中,常忆父母,乃至七世父母。年年七月十五日,常以孝慈,忆所生父母,为作盂兰盆,施佛及僧,以报父母长养慈爱之恩。若一切佛弟子,应常奉持是法。’

时目连比丘、四辈弟子,欢喜奉行。

MoonStone

Moonstone

It is said if you give your lover a moonstone necklace when the moon is full you will always have passion with each other. Moonstone is a highly valued gemstone for these reasons:

  • Brings good fortune
  • Assists in foretelling the future
  • Enhances intuition
  • Promotes inspiration
  • Brings success in love as well as business matters
  • Offers protection on land and at sea

The moonstone is associated with the moon and was the stone of the goddess Diana. The most powerful time to use the moonstone is in a full moon.

It has been worn as an amulet to bring good emotions to the wearer, while protecting those of a sensitive nature. It can reunite lovers who have quarreled. Moonstone is also considered a good luck stone.

Moonstone is a very personal stone. It is a reflection of the person who owns it. It does not add or detract, only shows how it is. This is why the moonstone is said to perceive that which “is”. Moonstone is an excellent stone to use in meditation to understand oneself. Placing it in the moonlight of a moon reaching its fullness, not a full or waning moon, can revitalize it. This is a particularly good gemstone for women. It is a good stone for young women or teenagers.

Healing properties

Moonstone is used by healers to stimulate the functioning of the pineal gland and balance internal hormone cycles with nature’s rhythms. Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. Though often considered to be a woman’s stone, it can be beneficial to men in opening the emotional self.
